Jill's Journey

Hopping her way towards a (hopefully) cancer free life three legs at a time

A new family member!

Filed under: Uncategorized — rica55 at 10:58 am on Sunday, March 1, 2015

Hi everyone!

Well some very exciting news today!

About a week or so ago I saw this kitten on facebook.  I couldn’t resist her little face, but I have two cats and that is PLENTY for me.  I read about her and turns out she lives with a foster family who has a poodle and she LOVES dogs.  So…I began pestering my parents – something just told me this little girl was just perfect for them and Belle.  After a week of thinking it over, they decided that this little girl, named Dempsey, will be coming to live with them!  Application is still pending but I am sure they’ll be approved ;)

Dempsey lives in Albany, so her foster mom will be driving her down here next weekend.  We’re all SO SO EXCITED!  Most of all BELLE!  Belle always loves to snuggle with Jack and Jill, but she always wants to play with them and they have no interest in playing.  Dempsey’s foster mom told me she loves to play with her dogs.  Here is a description of Dempsey and some pictures of my new sister :)

Dempsey’s Petfinder Summary:

Does your dog need a companion to collect all his toys? Does your dog love to cuddle, to have someone throw herself into him? Do you? Dempsey (from Sophia L’Orange – Foster Kittens “How to Marry a Millionaire” or at least make your adopter feel like one litter) may be the purrfect kitten for you.

She is a tiny teen who utterly adores dogs and people, she will literally throw herself into your puppy or you for attention. She is a little weary of other cats and would probably do best in a household without any or with a cat who would ignore her, but she is never aggressive just growls to try to get them to leave her alone.

She was born to a clinic cat in August, but was so fragile and small she was kept there and not even spayed until January. She’s also the darling of adoption events, cuddling in everyone’s laps. But this may have ended up being a disservice as then people looking didn’t know she was still available. But she’s that laid back a kitty. And still playful and cuddly enough at home. She will probably always be tiny, but has the biggest heart.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JACKSON!!!!!!!!!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — rica55 at 12:37 pm on Monday, February 23, 2015

Today is my baby boy’s 12th birthday!!!!!!!!  I can’t believe he is 12!  Time has really flown by.  I got him when I was just a wee little 21 year old.  We have truly grown up together and he has always been there for me to make me giggle when I’ve needed it the most.

Happy birthday buddy boy.  I love you.

Jack update and More!

Hi all!

It has been one week since Jack’s tooth extraction.  Overall, he is doing pretty well.  He was a little grumpy for a few days – he was ESPECIALLY unhappy about having to eat wet food.  He does not like wet food at ALL.  I know what you’re thinking – he looks like he would like ANY food, but alas, that is not the case.  Unfortunately, he is still sneezing, so not quite sure what the heck is causing that…..

He was being very lovey and clingy for a few days, but then our special little barky visitor showed up and he lets her have the snuggles :)

Here are some videos of my little boy purring away in his drugged out state and playing and some pictures for your enjoyment :)

My Brudda

Filed under: Uncategorized — rica55 at 6:05 pm on Sunday, January 18, 2015

Jill Here.  Well Mom is freaking out so I had to type today for her.  She is being silly.  My Brudda Jack has been sneezing a lot lately.  Purrsonally I dont think its a big deal but its REALLY annoying because it wakes  me from my naps.

So Jack has been to da vets a few times and he has lots of problems, number one being he is so fat.  I mean.  Thats what I think at least.  OK he also has some kinda something going on in his lungs probably just a fection but the vet is not very concerned.  He also got a big fection in his mouth and his tooth MUST come out.  Thank god.  His breff STINKS.

So moms had to get him a test because he has something called a heart purrmer.  And he is not allowed to get his tooth pulled without the test.  The test said its ok.  He is just fat.  OK and maybe he has a leaky valve or something.  Anyways.  Tomorrow brudda is going to have his tooth pulled and mom is FREAKING.  See before I was born Jack went to get his peanuts removed and did not do good under the stesia.  He woke up all wobbly and stayed like that fur DAYS and almost DIED.  I dont know about that Mom.  You tend to overreact.  But I wasnt alive yet so I dont know.  But the vet says its ok he has been all tested and they are going to monitor him just fine.

Anyway.  Mom and I get to spend the whole day together tomorrow because brudda will be at the vet.  We have never been alone together!  What a TREAT!  Sorry Brudda.

Here is some video of my big brudda at the vet.  I think he needs ritalin.  He can’t sit still and he seems to have made a girlfriend.  Sorry brudda.  I doubt she likes you in that way.

And report from the radiologist.  I include this as my proof.  Pay particular attention to that last line under conclusions:
