Last friday my meowmy took me to see the vet because I was not eating and felt lousy. My vet was not there but we saw one of his partners. He found a golf ball sized mass in me, meowmy felt it and saw it on the sonogram.
I went back today to see my regular vet because meowmy wanted his opinion on what we should do and guess what! The lump is gone! The vet does not have any explanation for it. Was it the power of purr? A miracle? We will never know for sure.
I still have the tumor in my liver, it is small and is barely growing, so I still need purrs, but I am out of immediate danger.
Thank you all for the comfort and support you have given my meowmy, she was truly at her lowest point this week-end.
I love you guys with all my heart!

Dear friends, this is Norman's meowmy. I have been putting off this diary entry because it hurts so much to talk about it, but the time has come to ask for purrs and prayers.
A few months ago Norman's vet suspected he had cancer due to results from a blood test. I did not want to believe it and we had lots of test run trying to find another cause for his anemia. The vet did not know where the cancer was until a month ago and they found a second tumor today.
Unfortunately because it is so close to his liver and his liver function is already compromised due to other illnesses it is not treatable.
I know so many of you have been through this and you know how I am feeling right now. I am very sad and feeling so defeated.
Please send some purrs for my sweet baby.

I have been tagged by my friend Emily! If you would like to play, copy the questions and put them in your diary with your answers, then tag some furiends!
1. Describe one thing your pet pawrent does that you think is REALLY CUTE.
Hmmmmm....thinking.....still thinking......Well it is kind cute, in a strange way, all the silly things she does to get my attention when she wants me to look at the camera.
2. Describe one thing your pet pawrent does that you think is REALLY LAME.
This is a easy one! Playing farmville for hours when I could be here playing with my pals.

Please pass this on to anyone who lets their cats have human tuna!
Quick link-Bumble Bee Tuna recall
What the article says-
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Bumble Bee Foods LLC is recalling some of its 5-ounce canned tuna because of a risk the fish could spoil.
The company said Wednesday that some cans' seals may not be tight enough. Loose seals could let in pathogens and spoil the tuna, sickening an eater.
There have been no reports so far of any related illnesses.
The cans were distributed to retailers across the country between Jan. 17 and Feb. 28 and have "best by" rates that range from Jan. 16, 2016 through Jan. 18, 2016.
The products subject to the recall include Bumble Bee brand and Brunswick brand 5-ounce cans of chunk white albacore in water and chunk light tuna in water and vegetable oil.
Consumers who think they may have purchased one of the recalled products can contact Bumble Bee to get their money back and throw away the canned tuna.
Bumble Bee is privately held and based in San Diego.

My brofur Blackie will be leaving us today at 4:45. He is disoriented and not eating. We had hoped for more time with him, but he just can't fight anymore. Please say some purrayers for him and meowmy. She is so sad, Blackie is going to be so missed by all of us.

My brofur Blackie needs lots of purrs. He has malignant cancer. There are a few nodules under his ear and some on the inside, it is inoperable. Right now he does not seem to be in pain and is still eating, but the vet feels like it will spread quickly

Well as most of you know I have been battling several ailments for close to two years now and my weight at my worst was just barely over seven pounds. Two weeks ago I went for my routine lab work, was not fun for me or the vet and his two assistants, anyway the results were the best I have had since I got sick! Still taking meds and watching my progress very closely.
Today I went in for my B12 shot. Meowmy weighed me on the scales in the lobby-9 pounds! Yippee I am gaining weight! Then I got into the exam room and that's when it happened....the word none of us food loving kitties want to hear...FAT. Fat? I have not heard that word in a long time. The vet says I am not overweight now but meowmy needs to watch and make sure I do not get fat. So not much more weight gain for me. Do they make diet chicken?
Oh yeah and to add to the insult the vet rubbed my ears! No one touches my ears, everyone knows I hate it, even the vet. I told him about too, and if he had gotten me out of the carrier to give me that shot I would have also given him a good swift kick!
I got chicken when I got home and it looked like my normal portion so I am beginning to calm down!
Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. Thank you all for all of the purrs you have sent me over the last two years, they are working.

My sisfur Tess lost her battle tonight. She had a good day relaxing in the outdoor pen that she loved so much, but when night came she began having trouble breathing. Meowmy had to take her to the vet for the last time. I am going to miss her, even though she was always slapping me off of the food so she could eat first. We had hoped she would have more time with us.
So many of you prayed for her and we appreciate all of the love and purrs we have received from our friends here. I don't know how we could make it without all of you. Fly free baby sis, we love you.
