Alex loved being with her mom more than anything, cuddling
Being sick and taking medicine
Favorite Nap Spot:
on her mom's chest where she would listen to my heartbeat and fall asleep
Alex would spoon with her mom and would lick my tears if I was sad
Alex's story is a long and complicated one. She came to me after many, many owners and a long journey. My poor little girl led a hard life and I was privileged to have her with me for only 5 years. the last year of her life she was incredibly sick with Inflammatory Bowel Disease and suffered a great deal. She showed me what pure and true love really is. She is my soulmate! To read Alex's entire story and see more information about Feline IBD go to http://www.ibdkitties.net/. You can read more at my blog also: http://ibdkitties.blogspot.com/
After Alex developed IBD she then got fatty liver disease and pancreatitis, better known as triaditis. She didn't live very long afterwards and left me quite suddenly. My heart was beyond broken but acting as my angel she sent me Finnegan and then Lacey to help her mom laugh again. I decided to start a website dedicated to her and IBD so we can help others deal with these horrible diseases. Alex is still with me in spirit and she's my guiding force. For her, I will continue on until we find a way to successfully treat and maybe even cure these diseases.

Hello all! I had a long angel day yesterday. I had to save my grandma's life. Me and all the other angel kitties were called to action in the biggest way. Mom wrote a long post on her Facebook page and will paste it here so she can explain everything that happened. Get ready for your jaws to drop!
From mom, last night: I'm home and mom is home too. This has been a day from hell. I lost 10 years of own life getting the life scared of out of me. so here's what happened. Last fall, mom fell in my sister's driveway. She has bad osteoporosis. She felt like she hurt herself but not that bad. Until recently, when she began experiencing terrible pain in her neck, shoulder and then yesterday her elbow. We thought it was just her osteoporosis. Little did we know. The doctor sent her to the hospital for a simple x-ray. they kept us there after the initial x-ray and said they needed a CT scan. Then they told us we couldn't leave. They came out of the room with a wheelchair and said we needed to get her into the ER NOW. They told me they found an abnormality in the scan and she needed surgery. Well she cannot go through surgery, she wouldn't live. She's already died twice before on the operating table because of her heart. I was losing it! I was alone and scared! they put a cervical collar on her and told me she had broken her neck in several places and she could become paralyzed. We were like "WHAT!?!!!" My sisters came and we didn't tell my dad anything because we didn't want him to have another heart attack. So my brother in-law-came to stay with him and keep him company. They called in two doctors from the neurospine center and when they came in and saw her scan, they told us that she's a walking miracle. There is no way she should not be paralyzed right now. But if she falls again, it could happen this time or we could lose her. They showed us her scans and MY GOD!!! She's a broken mess! yet she can still walk, feel everything, no numbness, move her bowels. She even went grocery shopping yesterday and drove herself! I swear I don't understand this and frankly neither do they. They said literally they've never seen anything like this in all of their years. But now she can't drive anymore, she cannot lift anything heavy and she has to wear that collar 24/7 for a very long time. She's extremely sick right now from the Morphine and throwing up. I don't have long, I need to get back downstairs. I did all of this today on only two hours of sleep. I was having anxiety attacks last night in bed and didn't know why. Now I know. We joked and said we were going to bubble wrap the whole house! The doctor laughed. They just love her, she weighs all of 80 pounds and has NO fat on her. yet she's still walking. Nurse will be coming tomorrow so just like last summer with dad, now this starts all over again. We'll have to help her get dressed, bath, do their laundry now, cook for them, everything. It's only going to get worse from here. but she's here!
Alex: they are actually thinking now she fell WAY before that. so she really is a walking miracle. she had a rough morning, dry heaving and feeling sick. But she's feeling better now. Keep her and our family in your prayers if you can please! This is not over! XXOO

Hello all my wonderful friends! I want to say thank you all so much for my gotcha day prezzies, well wishes, thoughts and love. Mom says she's so blessed to have had me in her life and I feel the same way. Mom has been having a difficult time because as you know grampy is sick with cancer, congestive heart failure and now he's anemic on top of that. He's still doing okay but could be better. The holidays this year will be all about them as mom just wants to spend quiet time with them in case it's the last year for grampy. We just don't know if he'll be here next year at this time realistically so mom wants to make the most of it.
Admittedly, mom has been very strong up until now but is starting to crack and cry a lot. It's that realization that he's very sick and we don't know how much time he has left. Anyway, we wanted to say thank you to everyone and we love you so very much! It means so much to us that you're here on this day! XXOO

Wow! Today is my birfday! I am technically 17 years old but I feel like a kitten! Mommy is having a rough day because ever since Grampy got out of the hospital he and grammy have been making her and her sister do EVERYTHING. So things are not all hunky dory there at chez mommy's house. But she sure got cheered up quick with all the lovely emails and prezzies I've been getting. We both love our furriends here so much and it wouldn't be a happy birfday for me if I couldn't celebrate it with you all. So thank you for being here and helping us have a great day.
Everybody please enjoy this big spread that my friends here at the bridge have made for me. We have cuppycakes, catnip iced tea, finger sammiches, and lots of cake and ice cream! it wouldn't be a pawty if we couldn't share it with ALL of our furriends. Love you all!!!
