Jill's Journey

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

A Letter to my Cat is HERE!

It really is true!  Jill is in a real life book!

I didn’t really believe it until I saw it with my very own eyes.  In July 2013, I got a phone call that the wonderful people putting together the book A Letter to my Cat read the letter I submitted online and wanted to come do a photo shoot with me and Jill.  I thought someone was playing a trick on me to be perfectly honest.  But it was true!  And now a little over a year later, my beautiful little one is along side celebrities and their kitties in this heartwarming book.

It is such a honor to be able to share Jill’s story.  To be able to show the world that a cancer diagnosis does not always mean the fight is over.  To be able to show the world that the word that once felt like a punch in the gut to me: “amputation”, does not mean the end of your kitty’s very happy life.  This all means the world to me.  I never thought in a million years when Jill was diagnosed with osteosarcoma over 2 years ago that we would be where we are today.  This fight has been hard.  It’s been emotional, trying and at times heart wrenching.  But it’s also been a lesson in strength, love and a reminder that every single day I have with Jill is a true gift!

Here are some photos of Jill at her photo shoot and checking herself out as a published kitty! (and some of Jack as well, can’t leave him out!)

Gotta say this book is SO SWEET! We loved loved loved it and really helped us understand the special relationship people have with their kitties. Everyone needs to get it.

Congratulations you guys, it’s so pawesome how you are getting the word out that life on three legs is not the end of the world, it’s just the beginning of a newer, better one. You are doing so much to help animals and people everywhere. Love you!!!! xoxo
