Oh my I did have to go to the dreaded Vet again today. As soon as I got up and Mom didn't feed me again I knew something was up, then she put me in the carrier & into the car...As soon as we walked into the Specialist Vet office I knew the place from the smell...very familiar it was, I new this day wasn't going to be a fun day for me.
All of the vet tech ladies heard I was there for my treatment they all came out to see me and ask my Mom how I was doing, Mom was happy to tell them that I had done great after my 1st chemo treatment. They all called me the princess and all love me, I know that makes Mom feel good cause she knows I am being treated with loving care.
The blood lady came she shaved my paw again and stuck the needle in me took blood, as I sat there I was wondering how Mom was handling the wait. My blood test came back good and it was a go for my chemo treatment, another round of poison going in my body. It really worries my Mom and I try to tell her I will be fine.
So I have to stay and wait for the other needle to come to make me go into dreamy land for a little while, when I was in dream land I saw all of my families furangels & catster angel friends, Buddie was there holding my hand, Tyler was there too holding my other paw carefullly cause that had the needle in it but he was so gentle....They were all there purring and whispering prayers into my ears..telling me I was going to be Ok. They made me feel safe and loved. Then I had to say bye to them for now...thank you my angels for being there today with me. My medal from Dusty was with me the whole time too and Mom believes my blessed medal is helping me too.
Before I knew it I was done and back into my cage where my safety carrier was waiting for me.
Oh my I almost forgot they did an xray of my lungs and chest today too. They said no change and they are still keeping an eye on me to make sure there is no cancer in my lungs, there was an area that the Vet isn't sure about so we have to pray I will be fine...
My Vet went to talk to Mom while I was still tryng to wake up more, he told Mom I was doing good and my prognoses is still good and he is happy I maintained my weight, I didn't have any side affects and I am eating...yah I get Mom to feed me my can food with my supplements in it 3 or 4 times a day cause I only nibble at food and Mom wants me to eat whenever I want food.
The girls came out to say bye to me and wish me well until they see me at my next treatment.
Mom was off today so she coould be with me while I was getting my chemo, she was happy to be there for me even if she couldn't be in the room while I was getting my treatment.
I finally got to get out of there I just wanted to go home, get something to eat and sleep. Mom let me out of my carrier and off I went to see and check out the house thinking that maybe things changed but they hadn't changed at all it was exactly like we left it. Mom gave me my can food with my supplements in them, boy it tasted good I ate it all and Mom was so happy she was smiling and telling me I was a good girl. Of course I am I thought what else would I be! I washed my face and climbed into one of my beds with my trankie blankie and slept most of the afternoon...
So today was an eventful day, a good day for we got good news and I am home with my Mom and family. Now I have to rest and have a good nights sleep on my Mom the best medicine of all!!! Nite to you all and bless each of you, we are all purring & praying for all of the other kitties that are sick...Tallulah

Well Mom had me get up early this morning I was not happy I wanted to stay in bed...I am pretty tired lately......MOL Mom leave me be to sleep would you.
Mom was being sneaky she put something in my food and I smell my food first and there was no way I was going to eat this morning, scared Mom she thought I was refusing to eat and that is one of the side affects, but Mom knows I won't eat when she puts strange things in my food, it was only my herbal supplements that will help my immune system. So I got the yummy chicken baby food and no surprises in my babyfood....
I do sleep allot more, I am only up for a short time and then I go find a place to sleep. I sleep while Mom is gone, she came home and I was hungry again so she gave me can food with no surprises this time, I ate it all made Mom so happy.
Mom decided to call my new Vet this morning cause I refuse to eat my food with the supplements in them. Mom is so happy with my new vet because she believes in the same things as my Mom, she loves me and loves working with Cats....Mom talked to her and my Vet said she would be talking to the holistic vet to see what they could find that is liquid form of my supplements and goes with colostrum...she called this evening to tell Mom they found a liquid form for me and Mom will have to go pick it up tomorrow morning and take the powder back for a credit...
I have been running around a little and this evening I took Mom by surprise I jumped to the floor from the top on a chair....Mom was concerned but I assured her I was fine....so you see my friends I am doing well my special angels on catster are helping me through this all along with all of my special cat friends too...Mom and I wouldn't know what to do without all of you....well I am getting sleepy again so I gotta go find a nice warm place to sleep.

Well my friends, Mom did it she took me this morning in my new small carrier to the Vet to have the blood vampire get more blood from me to see if my white blood count was up and it was, so Mom had to leave me there in that awful place and in another prison room. They shaved my other front paw, why couldn't they just use my paw that was already shaved. So now I have two bare legs. The vampire lady came and got me out of my hiding place in my prison and they put more needles in my arm and soon I was asleep so they could put the nasty stuff in me. When I woke up it was done and they put me back into my prison and I went right into my very own little carrier, I did have my trankie blankie with me but I had an accident in it before they got me settled, so Mom had to wash it, I need it to help me sleep...I had my medal on Mom told them not to take it off because it was blessed and it was helping me to stay safe and get well....
I heard them talking to Mommy and told her I did good and I was still a little groggie, but doing fine. Finally Mom came and got me, but we didn't go home right away she had to go take care of a little doggie and a kitty smaller than me before she brought me home.
I actually ate some dry food and a little tuna with my special herb supplements and colostrum that will boost my immune system while I am going through chemo.
They told Mom to make sure she keeps an eye on me to make sure I am doing OK, I am eating: I could get sick and more within 5 to 7 days...
Well I am home now I won't have to see the vet hopefully until the next chemo treatment on the 27th...I am going to go sleep now I am tired...Bye my friends I will let you know how I am doing tomorrow, Oh I have been able to sleep on my Mommy the last 2 nights and it was the best sleep I have had in a long time, just love my Mom and getting to sleep with her...there is nothing better!!!
Love and purrs to all of you

Oh man Mom put me in the little carrier and off we went in the car!!!!I am not happy in there cause I am not only in the carrier I am still wearing that collar, how embarrassing!!! At least I have my pretty pink collar on with my very special medal to keep me safe...
Well the Vet tech has to weigh me I did loose just a little weight, Mom worries about that cause I don't weigh much to begin with. Then the dreaded temp up the you know what is done, that is fine, not running a fever....
Now the Vet comes in to check my stitches and good news, they are out even in the area that Mom wasn't sure of, they said it was just in the fold of my belly whenI sit. So I only have to wear the collar for a couple more days and then I am done with it and I will be out of the my bathroom prison....I have to wear it just to make sure all of the scabs are heal up. I have my collar off now and I am washing my whole body boy does that feel good to be able to get all of the hospital stuff off of me. So I am happy happy not to have my collar after 2 more days....
Now for the other news, I will be having chemo starting on thursday, Mom is very worried, but we don't have a choice we have to do this. They did see a very small spot on my lung that they will be watching to see if it gets smaller if it does that means the cancer is in my lungs, if it doesn't it isn't cancer.
The Vet says my prognoses is good and I should do well with the chemo...but every cat reacts differently so we will see how I do.
They may have to sedate me to give me the chemo cause they have to make sure it doesn't get on my skin if it does, it will be bad for me, they said the skin dies and it may not heal from the sore, so I have to be really good and not move. More needles and blood vampire coming to check my blood....on thursday...
The Vet also said it was Ok for my Mom to get supplements from the Vet we are going to go see tomorrow to help me through my chemo, Mom and the Vet agree anything to help me will be good.
Well I need to go I have to finish washing my face, boy it feels so good to be clean again after waiting 2 weeks to get cleaned up.
Love you all and thanks for all of your concern, prayers and presents...

Oh Oh, Mom isn't happy with me!!!!
During the night on Saturday I figured out how to moved my softy collar and I was just a licking away at my incision by my back legs. It is now not looking so good and Mom said I was a bad girl cause now she thinks I won't be getting all of my stitches out tomorrow or I will have to take more medicine so I don't get an infection...and keep wearing this collar
So I am bad and now I have to wear the plastic collar, the one from the Vet is too big it came off so Mom had an old one from her other kitties, I am now wearing that and I can't have it off unless Mom is right there with me. I am not happy either....MOL I can't do anything with this collar on I guess I will learn the hard way not to lick when Mom tells me I can't
I have another Vet appointment to see a new Vet that offers supplements to help me and she has worked with cats mostly so Mom is happy...Mom is trying to find out what other options there are out there besides the awful dreaded chemo...gotta go get Mom to take the collar off so I can get a drink of water and eat talk to you later my very special friends...Tallulah
One more thing I got a special medal to protect me and keep me safe in the mail today from Dusty Miller and it has been blessed. Mom already put it on me and won't take it off cause now I have a pretty that has special powers besides my trankie blankie....Thank you Dusty Miller and Mom

I am doing so well I don't want to be in my bathroom prison anymore...Mommy please let me out of there....
MOL falls on deaf ears, cause I still have to be in that prison at night and when Mom is gone during the day....I sit and cry at the door it has a small gate so I don't make a mad dash for freedom, yah right like I can run with those stitches all over my belly and this stupid funny looking thing around my neck, I would for sure step on it and take a tumble...
Mom told me today that my incision looks really good I am healing nicely, I am eating again, but not a lot still...When Mom lets me out I just walk around and around aimlessly. Then I go to the back sliding door crying to go out, I want to eat grasss, but Mom says Doc said no outside not even on the patio so I can eat grass....MOL why can't I go outside.
The first thing I am going to do when I get those stitches out is ask Mom to let me out so I can get to that grass and then I will be happy and Mom can bring me back into my house.
Well I gotta go I see my dog brofurs crate bed is free for the taking so I think I am going to go in and take a nap...talk to you all again and thanks again for checking in to see how I am doing....we will know more about the chemo on Tuesday. XOXOXO Tallulah

Mom told me I need to let all of my furriends know that I am doing well, been resting and sleeping the last 2 days while Mom was out taking care of 4 clients pets this weekend.
In the mornings Mom has let me out of the bathroom, I walk around the house checking everything out. Mom has to follow me around so I won't jump on the furniture or my cat tree that I love so much, I miss being about to sit on my favorite spot and watch what is going on, one day soon I will be able to get back up there. yeppeee I am out of prison bathroom....
Mommy says my incision looks better, I haven't let her see it today yet. I am now eating my wet food no more baby food even though it was yummie.
I am sleeping in my brofurs crate this afternoon, Mom said she will leave me cause I look so peaceful and really resting. when I wake up Mom says she will have to look at my incision and put a warm compress on it again.
We still haven't heard from the Vet to see if I will have to have further treatment, hopefullly we will hear this week.
Well I need to get back to sleep and rest so I can get better, I will write again to let you know how I am doing.....Tallulah XOXOXOXOXO
special purrs and prayers to my special friend Tyler...Hi Tyler hope you are feeling better today and eating you don't want to worry your Mom.....

I gave my Mom a surprize today when she came to see me this morning...I was up moving around and I MOL at her....gave Mommy smiles and tears she knew I was feeling better than yesterday....
Mommy let me out and I walked around I wanted to check out all of my spots and to see if my house was still here. Of course I had Mommy right behind me to make sure I didn't do anything I am not suppose to do.
I got to go to one of my favorite spots next to Mommy's bed to lay and look out the window for a while, I actually slept there for a while getting to smell fresh air.
Mommy wanted to put me in a different cage she has so I could be out of the bathroom, but I didn't want to be in there, so I climbed up the side, yes I did climb up and I was hanging on for dear life meowing it made Mom jump up and come get me before I hurt myself, of course I had to hiss and grawl at her cause I am hurting. Mommy had to make sure I didn't pull any stitches, so now the cage is gone and I am in the bathroom again Mommy says safer no cage....
I am getting ready to sleep now so long for now...updates later
