Two days before thanksgiving I was taken to the vet after auntie bumped into me one too many times. You know I've always been graceful and quick, never underfoot. She also noticed that when she picked me up my belly felt like there was a round bowl in it.
Well the vet looked me over and got all grim. You see the "bowl" is my spleen. My spleen is full of cancer and what's more I also got leukemia (not the viral one, but the blood cancer).
The last few weeks the cancer has been getting bigger, big enough that I look pregnant. There's nothing to be done for me since its in my blood. Yes it will kill me, but in the meantime I just want love. I purr all day and cuddle in the bed and I need lots of food!
I see all the letters I got and I am so thankful that so many people love me and understand...and that other people are seeing their beloved cats suffer through this long drawing down of the curtain. How we all wished that the things we love would just one day come to an end without something destroying them from within. Death by cancer is a true horror.
