A Cat in a Dog's World

Good News - Bad news

Hey gang. I fooled the doctors, I'm still hanging in there. The good news is that my diabetes is in remission. Yay that means no more shots. Mom and I love that. Now I have all these unused insulin syringes that Mom would hate to throw away. There are 6 unopened BD Insulin Syringe packages - a total of 60 needles. BD Ultra-fine needle (short needle)8mm 31G.

We also have 20 U-40 Insulin syringe (for use with VETSULIN) 1cc 28 Ga x 1/2" length.

Are there any other cats out there in the metro area of Minnesota that have the bad luck to need these syringes. If so Mom would be happy to give them to you. These are for pet use only.

We asked our vet clinic but they said they would just dispose of them. That seems like such a waste. Any other ideas of where we could donate them?

Now for the bad news. I'm afraid my time is getting short. My cancer is taking over. But Mom is so proud of me. Back in January they never thought I would last this long. My tests show my kidneys are not doing well and I'm a little wobbly on my back left leg. I'm not in any pain yet. Mom is so worried about knowing when to book me passage on the train to the bridge. She can see me getting weaker but I'm still not ready to go. I still rub and purr and come to her. I have to stay as long as I can to watch over Mom. Today Mom is taking me upstairs so I can get some fresh air on the enclosed cattery on the balcony. I haven't been up there for ages because Grandma's cats live up there now. But Mom says she's worked it out so I spend some time in it today. She's the best. That darn dog brother and sister of mine usually monopolize Mom so I always make the most of my Mom time.

Oops gotta go I think Mom needs me.

We are purring so hard for you and your family Chewtoy! You are such a fighter and we hope you have much quality time ahead with your family! You are loved!

Hugs and purrs,

PS - Can you call a local shelter to see if they would need the syringes? Hopefully, there is one out there that would use them and not just throw them away.
