Xena's Mom here...well my intention was to be off of Catster to take a break and try to heal....little did I know that things in my house would change...
On Memorial Day I was working out in my yard, I had Xena out with me on her leash..when I brought her in I had to brush her off, while brushing her off I felt a lump,as you all know my heart skipped a beat and the horrible feeling came back again (CANCER)..I started crying and asked again why why is this happening again...I can't go through this again.
The lump is on her left side right by her last nipple....of course with it being a holiday I had to wait to call on Tuesday...they couldn't fit her in but was able to get her in on Wednesday...I was very emotional and when I got into the room I couldn't hold it in and I cried when Dr. Kathy came in...
The lump felt different from Tallulah's but not being a doctor I don't know what it is...she had a little discharge come out of her nipple...They took some fluid from the lump and sent it out, they also did blood and urine work....
Dr. Kathy called me this morning with the results of her blood and urine work....her kidneys are starting to show signs of having problems, so she will have to be on a special diet or fluids. I am going to try the food and I am also looking into homemade food for her...
Then Dr. Kathy called me a short time ago to tell me that she does have a tumor and they are pretty sure it is a BASAL TUMOR (skin cancer), but they can't rule out mammary cancer because of the location of the tumor...
She will have surgery on Monday late morning/ early afternoon to remove the tumor, while under they will check her teeth and remove any of the few she has left if they need to be...they will send out the tumor tissue to a pathologist and then we will have to wait for the final result later in the week.
I can't believe this is happening again and as all of you know I am so emotional right now...I did want all of you to know what has happened since I haven't been here this past week...I pray that it will be the Basal because the prognoses is good...
I am still praying for all the kitties that need prayers and now I ask that you pray for my Xena...you don't need to give gifts just need lots of prayers...
I will let you all know how she is doing after her surgery it may be Tuesday before I am able to get on the computer...
Thank you all for your love, support and understanding..

Mom has decided that she needs a break from catster, not that we want her too, but she needs to so she isn’t always so sad & crying.….all she does now is cry when she visits , she wants to be here for all of our friends to support & love them, but it is just so hard on her, she isn’t healing like she should be healing….some days she feels like she is losing Tallulah all over again and it is getting too hard for her to feel better…
We won’t be gone that long maybe a few days, maybe a week…she just needs a break….we hope we don’t miss any of our friends special days, know that we are thinking of all of you, but Mom told us she needs to do this for herself…it will be hard not to get on, but it is time. Now we will get all of her attention! MOL we will get to play and spend time outside!
After this message we won’t be on! Know that we are all purring and praying for all in need…
Love and hugs
Xena, Tu Two, Zeke and Kandi

1. Do you ever wake your parent up in the night?
Yes, I am the night watcher of our house, so I walk all over the house make sure everything is OK. Lately I have been visiting Mom wanting her to wake up so she can scritch me, if she doesn’t I put my tail in her face…that gets her.
2. Do you ever tear up things?
No! I am a good girl
3. What is your favorite treat?
None, I don’t like treats stick my nose up to them, prefer my wet food
4. Can you fetch something when asked to do so?
5. Have you ever lived any place other than where you live now?
Only at the pet store before Mom adopted me and I got my forever home

January 27th me and my family will be on Catster for 2 years. We don't know where the time went, but we know that Catster has been a blessing to our family.
Mom put all of us on Catster and then asked herself why did I do that, I am not into all of these reality sites and roll playing...but then she realized why in July of 2009 why she was guided to be on here with us...
Our Tallulah....Mom needed to have her here to help Mom and our Angel while she fought cancer and she fought for 13 months...most important is the Love and Support all of our friends gave Tallulah and Mom. It still amazes Mom that Moms we have never met have given so much to Tallulah and Mom...we are so blessed to have you all as our friends & in our lives.
Now you are helping Mom spread the word about Kitty breast cancer, our Tallulah is all over the world. No where else could this happen, Mom is still in shock at how much Tallulah touched others and how much she was loved. it makes Moms heart happy and bring tears to her eyes.
Each of us have sweethearts and wonderful special friends, rxcept mean Kandi and Princess Tu Two, she is too little right now, know we all love you and we are here for you as you have been here for all of us.
Mom is still learning how to do things on Catster, some of our friends have sent information on how to do things Mom wants to learn, know that Mom still has the information and hopefully as it gets easier for all of us to be here she will try to learn; that is Moms goal for this year....hope she will be able to reach her goal.
No matter what happens on catster Mom knows that there will always be those that will be here to give one another love and support, that is what Catster is all about.
We have had lots of fun on Catster too, not just that sadness, but at times the sadness is too much to bare for Mom, but she always returns because she knows that other kitty Moms will be here to help and support Mom as we will support and love others too...to Mom Catster has been healing for her. Friends outside of Catster don't always understand how Mom feels and why she is so sad, but she knows that Catster Moms do understand as a lot of you have gone through the same thing losing your beloved kitties...
Now as we start our 3rd year we hope to be able to support and love friends as you all have done for us this past year, learn more and just have some fun.
THANK YOU CATSTER FOR BEING HERE, OUR FRIENDS FOR BEING HERE, YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT.
As we begin another year we hope it will be a happier!
Snuggles and hugs to our friends!
Xena, Mom and family

Resting with Mom this weekend sure made a difference, I am feeling so much better.
I know I worried my Mom, she worries so especially when out of the blue I was sick and we still have no idea why I got sick...infection what kind of infection. Mom called the Vet but she is off today so hoping she will call Mom tomorrow afternoon when Mom is home to talk about me...talk about me why Mom what can you possibly talk about, I am fine now. Oh oh I think I know she wants the Vet to get some blood and urine to make sure there is nothing going on with me...not good when they talk about taking my blood and urine...but I guess I will be OK with it if Mom will feel better to know I am OK, just loves me so.
I just slept this weekend in my heated bed, I ate my can food and Mom kept giving me Immuno.
This morning I finally got up on the couch to get brushed with my zoom groom and it felt so good. Once done I got lots of love from Mom, she took me to my bed at the bay window and told me to be a good girl while she was gone, to watch the house, take care of my sisfur and brofur...
Oh and yeah Moms hand is feeling better but she still is resting her hand and wraps it when she has to do work.
Thank you all again for your comments of well wishes for me and Mom. I love my friends you all are the best...and so does Mom.

Thank you my friends for your prayers, POTP, heart from my sweet heart Tully! they all worked, I am feeling better today, but Mom is still watching over me.
Biggest Surprise is I got on Moms bed last night and slept with her for a while, she was surprised and happy. Then when she came to fed me this morning I got out of my bed and got my can food.
Mom tried getting me to come to the couch like I do when I want to be brushed, I got out of my warm bed and sat on the bay window, but didn't go to the couch, Mom came to me. I got brushed a little really didn't want to be bothered today. So Mom gave me loves and told me it is OK just go back to bed and sleep to get well completely.
Mom left to walk the dogs she has to walk during the week so I slept. When she came home I got up went into the dining room, I wanted to go to Moms room and go into her closet, but Mom said no Xena you can't I need to check on you and I have to give you your immuno soon, I got into a chair instead. I am now back in my bed and feeling better...looks like I am on my way to getting better. We still don't know how or why I got an infection and my fever and that does concern Mom.
I do have to go back in soon for another urine test and Mom thinks she will ask them to do blood work again to make sure there is nothing going on with me...
Thank you friends for being here for me and Mom! we love you all!

Xena's Mom here, she looks better this morning, but still isn't herself. She ate her breakfast, but hasn't left her heated bed. I asked her if she wanted to be brushed but she just looked at me. I started brushing her and she seemed to enjoy it again, she also was rubbing her chin on an old brush she loves to rub on while I brush her, that is better than yesterday.
I haven't seen her get up to use the potty box or drink water, not that she hasn't used it during the night or when I haven't been right there with her.
I checked on her all night long I was so worried about her, I know that the antibiotics need time to work so I will not panic yet. I just gave her a natural immuno liquid to help boost her immune system and gave her more water by syringe.
I will be leaving soon so she will sleep while I am gone; when I get home I will get her up and make sure she walks around a little & she isn't limping but walking normal.
We want to thank our friends for your well wishes for our Xena, we know she will be better soon, it is just hard as all of you know to see our fur babies not feeling well.
Peggy and Xena
