Arrival Story: Born outside under steps of our home. As soon she was old enough to be taken from her mother, she was in the house. Her Mom is Nonny. She just melted our hearts when we first saw her stick her head out from under the steps. She was all gray when she was little and looked like a little wolf. We knew we had to keep her. Pinkie is the sweetest kitty. We can't imagine life without her.
Bio: Pinkie is the velcro kitty. She is normally within two feet of me when I am at home. At night, when we get in bed, within 5 seconds she is curling up in the crook of my leg. She will stay there until the tv and lights go off.. She then comes up to her own pillow which is between Mommy and Daddy's pillow. This is ritual...everynight. If you try and mess her up...she will get all nervous and jump off the front of the bed and sleep under the bed...she is definitly a creature of habit.
I wanted to again thank you all for the outpouring of love after my surgery.
Catster is like a warm blanket that surrounds us all during our times of need.
I am getting back to my normal routine which is so comforting to Mom and Dad.
But my doctor is concerned about the reoccurrence percentage for my cancer that was found in the tumor. I just want to go back to my normal life...meow.
Pinkie healed amazingly and she is doing well. No signs of illness at all. We are going to speak to the oncologist just to hear from the expert. Not sure if we will go any farther with extreme measures or treatments.
We don't know if the tumor was a result of it being elsewhere in her body. There are no signs of that through the testing done. The location of the tumor was strange as well and not typical of it being a result of cancer somewhere else.
There are some alternative treatments that may be an option for us.
We are going to monitor her for about a month and go from there.
I will have Mom keep everyone updated on me through other places once we are no longer here on Catster.
But I wanted everyone to know that I am home and
recovery is going well.
The lab results on the tumor will come back in about a week.
I can't lie. It was really scary. I didn't know what was happening and not sure if Mom and Dad were leaving me there. I didn't know anyone and I was really hungry. I went almost an entire day without eating because of when they did the surgery. It hurt a lot. But they gave me some really good stuff that made me super sleepy.
Mom and Dad told me, when I got home, that they made this decision for me because they were afraid that the tumor was going to make me sick at some point.
My doctor was very nice and made them feel comfortable with their decision.
I am enjoying the extra attention. I am getting tons of treats.
Thanks for the purrs. It really does help me feel better and Mom too!!
This is probably my last entry before they shut down the Community Page.
But I wanted to update everyone on my surgery consultation.
We sent to see a really nice doctor this morning. I was a good girl and
wouldn’t stop purring.
He gave me an examination and did blood work and
took another biopsy of my lump. He thinks it could be a vaccination site sarcoma.
But not sure since it has been there most of my life. It could be an infection or it could be a fatty tumor that has just developed into a cancerous tumor.
Either way, he felt that we should consider taking it off.
He wants to be aggressive since if it is from the vaccinations, it is most likely to grow back.
Mom and Dad scheduled the surgery for Friday morning.
Dad is hiding it well and Mom is a wreck. All I know is that I will be getting extra lovin in the next
couple of days.
Really appreciate that you keep those purrs coming.
