Excellent mouser. She stands at the top of the stair and growls when she hears a stranger at the door!


Arrival Story:
She appeared on my front porch about two in the morning one October night in 1997. I had been hearing a cat crying for some time and it suddenly stopped. Then I felt something fuzzy against my ankle. She was hard to see in the dark because she was only eight or nine weeks old and almost black. I fed her and she spent the night in a planter on the porch. When she was still there the next morning, I invited her in to stay and she accepted.

On Monday the 10th of May at approximately 5:02 P.M., Her Royal Highness Queen Mu went gently and peacefully to the Rainbow Bridge. Her royal physician was in attendance. She fell asleep wrapped in a pink blanket and cradled in her Mom's loving arms. She was cremated at the Royal Crematory at Oak Crest. Her ashes were returned to her family enshrined in a mahogany urn and have been placed as a memorial to Her Highness' memory in the family home. She was loved by many and will be missed.


Making Ready for the Journey

It seems that we have had a setback. The cancer is aggressive and we weigh only 5 pounds. Our vet has stated that we now have a heart rhythm which suggests an enlarged heart. We are not hydrating well and the edema in our legs is worse. We were given Lasix and antibiotics yesterday but really to no avail. We are in a very weakened state and have been given a revised prognosis of 1 to 2 weeks at most. We had hoped to make our 13th birthday on August 20th but that is obviously out of the question. In light of this, our dear love Sir Sonny Bono has decorated our page in a magnificent birthday theme and will be throwing us an early birthday party on Saturday May 8th. It will be an all day affair and it would be lovely to have as many of our dear friends drop by as is possible. We love you all so very much and when we make our journey to the Rainbow Bridge, we shall take you all with us in our heart! Do not be saddened by the news we bring. If we can but have a gentle crossing, then surely all shall be well.

The surgery is two weeks past, the sutures have been removed and the vet has said that we are doing well. She expects the lymphedema to be temporary and resolve within the next few weeks. We have passed the four month mark since the time of diagnosis when we were given only two months to live. Now that the large tumor has been removed, there remain some very small ones in the left groin area. At what rate they may grow is anyone's guess and the vet told Mom that she would not draw any conclusions as to how much time we have. She said it could be months to a year or more. She also said that she had to remove so much tissue during the surgery that there is not enough skin remaining to accommodate any further surgery in the groin area and that if another tumor were to grow there and abscess, the only option will be to send us to the Rainbow Bridge. To those of you who love us, we humbly ask for your continued purrayers. We thank you all for your concern. There is indeed hope that all shall be well.
