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.

Jill here.

So Mom sez Febary is Brush your pets teef month.  Something like that.  Dis is very important so I wanted to remind everyone.   As I told you Brudder had to have his toof PULLED a few weeks ago.  PULLED OUT OF HIS HEAD.  Can you even believe that? Oy.

So remember everyone.  BRUSH YOUR PUPPIES AND KITTIES TEEF! And go for TEEF CHECKUPS!  DIS IMPORTANT I NOT KIDDING YOU HIS TOOF WAS PULLED OUT OF HIS HEAD!

And it costs lots of money to Mom to pull it out which means less treats and toys for me.  So really important.

K so dont forget k? Thanks. Love you all my fans.

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:

Happy TWO YEAR ampuversary Jill!!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — rica55 at 10:31 am on Friday, December 12, 2014

Two years.  There are so many words I can use to express how I feel when I type those words, but none of them adequate enough to really explain it.  Overjoyed, thankful, elated…the list can go on and on.  What I really feel is just an overall feeling of peacefulness and sense of pride that we’ve gotten to this place.

Being completely, totally, brutally honest, I NEVER in my wildest dreams would have predicted this outcome.  I hate to say that outloud.  But it’s the truth.  And while this journey has brought us to this wonderful moment, it was a journey filled with moments of fear and doubt.  You hear the diagnosis: Cancer.  What???  How can that be?  Then you get the treatment plan: Amputation and Chemotherapy.  Then you think (or at least I did) – will the cancer kill her or will the immobility do her in?  But then the panic subsides, and you look at that little face that has entrusted you with their life and you decide to fight.  And fight we did.  I made the decisions for her, but she put up the fight.

Now two years later, she is so happy, so healthy.  If I didn’t go through it with her, I would never believe this kitty ever had cancer.  She’s getting a little pudgy, weighing in at just under 12 lbs.  I looked back today at her records from day of surgery and she was 10.75.  To me, that’s a nice healthy sign 🙂

My little baby girl – you had a whole team behind you of wonderful vets and family….but you did this.  You got yourself here.  I am so happy I still get to snuggle up to you everynight and morning.  You are the most sweet, loving little being and it makes me such a proud Mom to see you so happy and healthy today, just enjoying your life snuggling with me and begging for treats.

I love you little girl.  Thank you for teaching me so much about love and strength.

Always,

Mommy
