WOW Again we are shocked that HQ picked me to be one of the DDP's today....but you know I am glad I am chosen you know why??????
Let me tell you!!!!!!
With every cat and cat Mom reading my diary it is one more human that knows about kitties getting cancer and me being a mascot for Chai Latte's Moms team for the 3 day breast cancer walk in October...yeah I know it is a ways away but it is never to early to get people to notice that breast cancer is in kitties too...
I am a SURVIVOR and not many kitties survive this awful cancer, not even me, but I won't die of mammary cancer as some of you know, but lung cancer because the tumors that caused my mammary cancer have attacked my lung and one day the cancer will win...WE HAVE TO STOP THIS NOW!!!!! WE NEED TO FIND OUT WHY THIS IS HAPPENING, WE NEED TO GET MORE AWARENESS.....
I am a MASCOT but I want everyone to know we are helping not only humans but kitties and doggies too....by my face being out there.....I am representing all the kitties with the cancer or who have gone to the rainbow bridge...so for each of you Mom has let my face be out there...
So thank you HQ for putting me on the DDP today to help me get the word out...
We are guardians and parents of precious kitties so it is our duty to take the time to check them for lumps, watch their eating, drinking water and even when they potty, weight etc. so if there are any changes we can get them to the Vet ASAP and find out what is going on...you just may save their life....be persistant with your Vet don't let them blow you off....you know your pet better than they do after all cats like to hide their illnesses....Mom says knowledge is power and power is the knowledge so when something happens do research and be active in your cats health....
If there is any cat Mom out there that knows of any organization that Mom can contact to see how we as cats can help get the word out let Mom know...in the meantime Mom will be trying to find out more information...we need to do more way to many of us are dying and getting sick because of cancer...this has to stop......

Concats on DDP. You are so right. I never knew till I joined this site, just how many kitties are dying because of cancer. Its just hard to understand. I (Mama here) am always looking up all the info I can and keeping a close eye on my Sassy girl and regular vet trips too. She has a great vet, I can really talk to her and she always listens to me even though I get paranoid over the least little thing sometimes! Every day I feel all her over lumps, check her skin (she has a tendency to get a rash on her chin sometimes), I even count how many times she uses her litter box for both the pee and the other! Sassy thinks I am too careful sometimes probably, but thats my job, to be the best Mama I can be and make sure she is okay!
Hugz and purrs, Mama and Sassy
Hi Sassy and Mom, no you can never be too paranoid, it is good you are checking, you just never know if you will see something or feel a lump it could save her life....Mom checked but I don't always like to be picked up so Mom didn't check as much as she should have, now she does with Xena & Zeke....we didn't know either how many kitties were getting cancer...we are just floored at how many just here in catster....
So don't stop checking you are doing the right thing....ask your vet questions.....glad you are doing research too especially with the computer we can find out so much more....
THANK YOU MY FRIEND....
Hi my bestest girlfriend!!! I am so honored to be on the memorial list....I represent the importance of finding answers...I died way too young.....I will support you and your cause....I am honored to be on Team Tallulah! Mommy wishes she could be there to walk on the big 3 day!
CONCATS SWEETIE ON YOUR DDP!!! WHAT AN HONOR IT IS TO KNOW YOU. MEW MOMMY CRIES WHEN SHE READS YOUR DIARIES I GUESS SHE THINKS OF MY FURSISTERS PRISSY,PEPPER, ALEXIS AND ZOEY WHO ALL DIED OF CANCER. FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT MISS QUEEN TALLULAH AND MANY KISSES AND CHEERS FOR FOR VIGILANCE IN THE FIGHT FOR A CURE FOR CANCER!!! LOVE MEW REEREE AND FAMILY
Well, concats to you as I already said...
Meowmy has not lost any of her pets to cancer, but she does know of some who have...but not breast cancer.
Meowmy herself is a cancer survivor as of July, 2006. Ovarian, stage 3. Scary stuff. So she feels for any pet or person who has to deal with this, either as a patient or as family member.
Some day, the end of theis illness - or rather - group of illnesses- will be defeated! Let us pray that it will be sooner than later!
Keep fighting the good fight QT! Mom feels it is a privilege to walk for all who are on her Honor and Memorial walls.
Mom can't believe how many people are amazed when she tells them that dogs and cats get breast cancer. You are doing a pawsome job as Team Mascot raising the awareness. Who knows how many lives you will save by getting the word out.
Pipo, we are glad your mom is a survivor.
Purrs & Hugs to All,
Chai & Mama J
PS - LOVE the new graphic QT!!
Thank you all for all that you are saying about cancer and me....as kitties and Moms here on catster each and everyday we all read about a kitty that has cancer or is going or gone to the rainbow bridge.....Mom has decided to call the HQ and find out if there is anything they can do to raise money for research or to help parents facing this.....Mom has spent lots and lots of money on me it is very expensive....but what we need is for Vets to do more research on not only a cure but to find out way this is happening to us kitties....I know I may not make but if me being a mascot and a breast cancer survivor if I can help one kitty then I have done my job making humans aware of what is happening to kitties everywhere....this is happening way to often and everyday Mom and I cry because of our kitty friends being sick with cancer...we all have been touched by this one way or the other with humans and kitties...it is time for us kitties and Moms to take a stand and find out answers......
We pray every night, light a candle every night and we cry for all of our friends and their famiies......WE LOVE EACH OF YOU AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR LOVE, SUPPORT AND HAPPY TIMES!!!!!!! I COULDN'T DO THIS WITHOUT ALL OF YOU.
