Today is my birthday. Today started out so happy, yet took a very sad turn. I just found out that my cousin at heart, Sugar, may be journeying to the Bridge soon to embark on her 10th life. I have no reason to celebrate my birthday now. I have my health and everything else that I could ask for. My birthday wish is to make my friend well again. My birthday wish is to have cancer eradicated.
Sugar had feline mammary cancer and had successful surgery to remove it. She has been cancer free for just over a year. Her cancer has now come back and it metastasized into her lungs. She cannot have surgery. Her family and mine are devastated… My brother Poo and Sugar both went in for surgeries on the same day in April 2013. Ironically, they both had cancer yet thankfully, Sugar was blessed with another year of life. Ironically, they are both grey tabbies, ironically, they both were 12 years old.
WHY????? *hangs head and lets the tears flow*
Can you please spare a prayer and a good thought for the grieving family; we all know all too well what it is like to go through this and fight this evil disease. A kind word, a gentle touch of the paw, a hug or a prayer will mean so much.
On a secondary note, thank you all for making my birthday such a special and happy one, despite the tears. The bond that Catsters form is so very strong, unique, loving and rewarding.
Dear Sugar will be gently helped to the Bridge on Friday 5/23/14. Please hold good thoughts for her and her grieving family... soft purrs

We will keep Sugar in our Prayers Lily.
Precious friend, I think Sugar would want you to enjoy your birthday, to enjoy your life every day - to live, love and laugh to the fullest and to always beliEVE.
We will hold her paw and gently bring her home when it's time and she will never have to fight that awful disease that took Poo's life and mine - she will be healthy again.
I'm going to visit Sugar after I finish this message, I will surround her with purple healing light and let her feel the love of a thousand fur angels that are waiting for her.
I love you, Lily - forever and a day.
Aggie is right sweetie. Sugar would want you to enjoy every day of your wonderful life and to always beliEVE. We are going to visit Sugar's page now, to send her our purrs and send her family our prayers and hugs.
