Arrival Story:
Twink is a rescue kitty from the SPCA here in L.A. He was about 3 when he came to us and is a sweet, gentle and loving kitty. His room mate is Rocky, another orhan who came to me in 1999. He was abandoned in a rock quarry at 3 months, hence his name Rocky! They are the best of buddies and are my loving companions. They are always glad to see me when I get home every evening. Twink was recently diagnoised with sequmas cell carcinoma in his left jaw bone. He has had two teeth removed because of bone detoriation. The tumor grew very fast and is the size of a small walnut. Surgery is not an option since it has spread to the roof of his mouth. I give him his medication twice a day. He is eating whatever he wants, loves to cuddle and sleeps most of the day. He has maintained his weight for the most part, 14 lbs. Twink and Rocky have the most wonderful Vet, Dr. Robert Schooley, who is helping me take care of Twink. My heart is very sad about having to say good by to Twink so soon. For now Twink is comfortable. I watch him every day to make sure he is OK for now.
