Jill Here.

I am coming to you live from the Animal Medical Center in NY, NY.  They usually don’t let you have a computer in here, but I’ve been sitting around with nothing to do since 8am.  It’s pretty rude actually.  No one has rubbed my belly in a few hours.  The food is not as good as my food at home and it smells funny here, not as good as my Mama.  But I digress.

Today started out with my mama rudely awakening me and putting me in that case again.  I clung on to her for dear life (never know when they’re going to take another appendage off your body), but she eventually got me in there.  Off we went for a nice taxi ride.

Next thing I know, Mom is gone!  They are poking, prodding, weighing.  What the!? She didnt even say goodbye.  Rude.

Few hours go by, lots of the nice people rub my belly and I give them all lots of hugs and still nothing is happening.  Nothing.  Nothing………..

I overhear this nice doctor lady say something about “no chemo today” “white blood cells too low” “neutrophils 390, should be 2,500-12,000”.  I think she is talking to my Mama, because on the other end of the phone I hear a hysterical person.  Um, MOM…….maybe if you would’ve TOLD ME there was a test today, I would’ve studied and then I wouldn’t have FAILED.

More belly rubs… my mom brought me here for belly rubs?  All the nice nurses and doctors say no chemo today Jill, we will see you in two weeks instead.

I think I can have my chemo today.  Don’t they know I am supurrrrrrrrrcat?!?!?

Wheeeee! With that cape, you’ll go places Jill.

I’m sorry those dumb vets didn’t see what a superhero you are. I know they made your momma SO worried but soon enough you’ll get that chemo and things will be fine and Momma won’t worry anymore.

Now, it’s time to get back to the serious business of pawting at the crib with Jack and Belle!
