My name is Petunia. I'm 15 years old. I just came to CA from MD a few months ago. Flying in the cabin of an airplane with my person, Anne, all the way from Maryland to California was a big adventure! I tried hard to be quiet, but I'm a Siamese, you know. Those bumps were scary, I forgot not to cry. The flight attendant offered me milk and water to help distract me, but I was too busy to drink it. I made it, and now I'm a California Girl, just like the song says! Now My job is to comfort my human, she is sad because the new cat doctor told her I have a nasty thing in me called cancer. She wants to connect with other humans whose cats have cancer.,,,

Hi, Petuna. Welcome to Catster! welcome
You're very brave to travel in an airplane.
I've sent you an invite to the Olde Furts Group. The group is for cats older than 10 years old. Their forums have lots of information on senior cat ills and you can post your questions there, too.

(the invite is in your email)

Hi Petunia
I hope that you will still have lots of time with your mom. Cancer is an awful thing. Our experience with it has only been with humans, not kitties, but I know there are many kitties on here that are fighting. I am sure there are groups for support here on Catster. Look in the groups section & put that in a search. Sending you a friend request too! welcomecat on moon

Hi Petunia! Welcome to Catster! welcome

I sent you a friend request and an invitation to a Catster Group called "Olde Furts." The group has a lot of great resources for older kitties whose health may not be what it was when we were kittens. It's also a great place for support and a lot of nice Catsters!

We'll be looking forward to getting to know you here on Catster! flowers
