i cant write much this night except to say with great sadness that at 3:45pm May 25, 2010, Punkin went to the Bridge.
He had the surgery to remove his right front leg and shoulder and came through the surgery, but as he was waking up, he went into heart failure and could not be revived.
Mommy will love you forever, Mr P.

Punkins Mom here:
i am pawing Punkins diary tonight because as i type this, he is in the hospital in Manhattan, awaiting surgery in the morning.
i sought out a 2nd opinion for my boy today in Manhattan at a vet who i really trust knows his stuff. He saved my feral boy Stinky last November and Stinky is now doing great as an indoor cat, after being hit by a car.
So Dr Pete examined Punkin and said that if i want him to live, the leg and probably his shoulder must go.
My husband and i made the decision to PULL FOR PUNKIN and have the surgery.
The ironic thing about this whole thing is that while we had Punkin in Manhattan at Dr Petes, the other vet called to say that they wouldnt be able to offer Punkin any other treatment except pain medication and feel free to call her back if i wanted the meds. Needless to say i did not return her call.
So here we are...facing a fight, this we know. But we feel that we are prepared. Prepared to fight the good fight. Whatever it takes...
So, i hope all of you out there will also PULL FOR PUNKIN at this scary time...
Love to all of you,
Dale + Punkin

The new vet that i saw yesterday called Mom late this afternoon and told Mom what is going on with me...she knew it wasnt going to be good news...and it wasnt.
It seems i have "soft tissue sarcoma""...Cancer--The Big C.
i know a lot of you have experience with this dreaded disease but we do not.
Mom has never had to deal with it in any of us kitties so she is really scared for me.
i am acting okay.
i am eating.
i am sleeping.
And i look like i am feeling okay when i am resting. When i walk, you can tell i hurt on my right side, in my shoulder, where this nasty Cancer is.
The vet says surgery is not an option because of its location. Radiation maybe??
Mom just doesnt know what to do.
i dont either, so im just going to take a nap beside Mom on the couch and let her figure all this out for me. i trust that she will do what is best for me.
i love my Mom and my whole huge wacky furmily and i want to stay with them furever but it doesnt look like that is an option for me.
i will fight this Cancer as long and as hard as i can for as long as i can.
Please also say prayers for my brofur Moozers brother-in-law Hooch who is also a sick guy right now.
Hey why is this Cancer picking on us brilliant orangies???
Its just not fair, i tell you.
Thank you for all your kind words and being there for us at this difficult time.
