I knew the time was right

I have been watching from the earth window every night since I sent mum Banjo and I've heard mum say he's a little sweet heart.

I knew of the best way to help mum heart mend after my passing was to send her a mate. Just finding her the right mate and finding the right time was hard. I love mum and always will and I didn't want to go when I did.

The cancer the got the better of me in hurry. But I love what mum said the other day. I am her cat at the bridge forever in her heart and Banjo is her earth mate. Banjo is one out of the box and a little fire cracker and very cheeky I think I was like that as a kitten.

He has the tabby mix in him like I had. But I want mum to remember one thing watching me suffer the way I did the last week I was earth broke mum's heart but please remember that I am restored to full health and I can eat what I want when I want.

You gave me the best life I could've hoped for and you looked after me when I was sick and in my final days. You gave me the greatest gift of all and that was letting me go. For all of the above mum I love you and thank you.

Purrs and hugs your Angel mate

PS Mum love really is forever and that goes both ways.

I have been watching my family from the earth window ever since I went to the bridge and I hated seeing how sad they were and I thought long and hard about when was the right time to send my family a new mate.

I only went to the bridge three week ago but mum and I talked about the type of new mate mum wanted. So today I sent her Banjo. He is a 2 month old domestic short hair tabby cross.

Mum has just put up as basic page for him and I would love it if some of my mates could become his mates he such a sweet little guy and I am sure he would love some mates of his own.

Here is the link to his page if anyone is interested.

Thank you for being great mates to me and Mum.

It has been two weeks since I made my journey to the bridge and I know mum

is missing me a lot. While I am restored to full health and I am with all my great mates that went before me I miss her a lot too.

To some my passing to bridge may have been sudden. I knew the time had come about a week before mum set me free. The tumor was getting bigger and my appetite was starting to wane to the point I stopped eating altogether three days before I passed.

When mum took me to the vet to be helped to the bridge the vet opened my mouth to look inside I hissed at him and nearly bit him and that wasn't me at all once mum saw this she told him to set me free.

Mum set me free at the right time and I got to say my goodbyes before I left and that's more than I can say for some of my mates and mums cat Zabu who has been here for 18 years and we've become great mates through our connection to her. Zabu died suddenly and even after 18 years still missed mum.

Zabu was the cat that mum had before me and he sent me to mum and I know when the time is right I will help mum with picking her new mate.

I miss mum as much as she misses me. I go to the earth window every day and look at what she doing. I am glad she not shedding tears for me anymore. She gave me more love and happiness in our time together on earth than more words could ever express.

Mum was quiet over whelmed with all the rosettes and messages of support we got there are too many to send thank yous to every individual but all were read and mum said it made the heart break of losing me a little bit easier knowing there were so many kitties that loved me.

I just want you know that every message of love was read and really appreciated.

For those of you still on earth with your human just remember this. Everyday you get to spend with them is precious gift. Make a point of hugging them at least once a day.


Purrs and hugs your Aussie angel mate

This Vicki Ka - zar's mum writing to let you know that Ka - zar is now at the bridge. We was set him free from suffering this morning as he had stopped eating and things were only going to get worse not better.

He had a great life and knew what it was like to be loved. He moved 4 times with me and never ran away so I take it he like living with us. He was healthy for 14 of his 15 years and the vet told me I was letting him go with his dignity still intacted so that's what I wanted to do.

He gave this tumor a good fight for 2 months. When he was diagnosed I just wanted him to last until Christmas and everything else was bonus time.

To those of you who still have their kitties with them go and give them a hug. Everyday you have with them is a precious gift.

Fly free my sweet boy you are gone but never will be forgotten. Love is forever.

 

Sorry I haven't been around much

I thought it must be time to put an update about me in my diary since I haven't been around much lately. Mum loves this time of year there is lots of tennis on so we haven't been around much since mum has spent most nights watching it lately.

I am doing ok. Hanging in there. I am still eating a fair amount and doing all the things I like to do. In Australia we are meant to be having summer but it's felt more like winter so I can't go outside.

Mind you we are not doing it as tough as my American mates that are in the middle of temps at -50 in some places. I purr for all my mates affected by the weather extremes that they stay safe.

At the moment everything is ok with me. Gave mum a scare the other night when she got home from work and I wouldn't eat. mum forgot to give me my flea control and my flea allergy was what made me sick.

Please keep the purrs going for me. I am sure they are the reason I am still here with mum and I want to stay with her as long as I can. I know she looks after me well and will do everything for me.

I hope this finds all my mates and their families happy and healthy and I send purrs to those doing it tough.

Purrs and hugs your Aussie mate

Merry Christmas and update on me.

Just thought I would get mum to write a diary entry for me since I haven't done one for a while.

I am doing ok. Eating like a horse and running around like a kitten. Mum looks at me and wonders if the vet got the diagnosis right. While I have uncertain future I am living for the moment and the right now.

I am looking forward to Christmas with my family. Lots of turkey and all the stuff that comes with it. The thing I look forward to the most is having mum at home for the whole day.

Mum been working hard the last week or so. People are buying a lot of food for the big day. Mum wonders how much people can eat in one day. The good thing is mum work is closed on Christmas day so I will have her all to myself.

I hope all my mates and their families have a great Christmas and santa paws brings you all everything you could wish for. Also don't forget to love one another Christmas and spare a thought and a purr for those doing it tough at this time of the year.

An update on me

I 've just home from the vet and the news isn't good. The doc seems to think the growth in my mouth is a tumor. He told us that the only thing we can do is keep me comfortable.

As long as I am eating and the metacam is working to keep the pain at bay mum will keep me going. We don't know how much time I have left but I know I am going to live the rest of my life to the fullest and make a fuss over mum and my human family that have been so good to me.

I went to the vet today

Went to the vet and had a check up on my mouth. The growth has grown ever so slightly. But the good thing is that I've been eating a lot and getting out about in the wonderful sunshine we've been having the last couple of days and giving mum more gray hair when I ignore her calls for me to come in.

I've been give an injection of anti inflammatory meds and some to have in liquid form once a day for the next ten days. What we're hoping this will do is reduce the mass.

It either a abscess or a low grade cancerous tumor. The doc told mum for my age I am in really good health. Now if we can only get rid of this thing in mouth. Unless I stop eating or start eating very little again the doc doesn't want to see me again for two weeks. To give the meds a chance to work.

Please keep the purrs coming but I have to say I am feeling a lot better but there is still some way to go.

Thank you for being my friends

I just wanted to thank everyone for their purrs, rosettes, comments on my diary and messages of support since I got sick.

I didn't know how much love there was out there for me and it is really really really really appreciated. I would love to be able to send purrsonal thank you messages to you but mum is busy with work and there were too many for us to answer individually.

I am doing better. I am eating a little bit more and I was a very naughty boy this morning. I started to howl and got mum out of bed to feed me. She normally ignores me and then goes back to sleep. This morning she got up and stirred my food. I started to eat and then she went back to bed.

Please keep the purrs going as I go back to vet on Tuesday for a check up. Mum wants the vet to check my mouth and then hopefully we'll get a treatment plan.

Purrs and hugs your Aussie mate

An update about my test results

November 12th 2013 12:12 am

Mum talked to the vet not long ago and again the results are mixed. My liver and kidney values are good and my thyroid is ok.

Under normal circumstance this would be a great result. But since I am having issues with my mouth it both good and bad. The vet told mum that there is no real way of knowing what going on.

It could be one of three things an ulcer, a abscess or a mouth tumor. A ulcer and abscess will shrink the tumor won't or will get bigger. If it cancer then it will be very aggressive.

On the plus side of all of this the vet gave me an electrolyte drink and I am starting to feel better and eat more. I even got the late night hypos last night and gave mum a few new gray hairs by jumping on the bathroom sink and drinking water out of the tap.

The doc wants to see me in a week to see what going on with my mouth. Please purrs for me that it's starting to heal.

Purrs and hugs your Aussie mate
