8 Months On...

I realised a couple of days ago that it is pretty much exactly 8 months since I was diagnosed with my lymphoma. The 'median' survival time is 6-9 months so I am now in the upper reaches of the median survival window. But like I said some months ago, some poor little kitties can succumb to this disease very quickly (weeks, a month or two) and others can go on for 3, 4 or 5 years. So, basically, I'm still thanking the Great Cat In The Basket for every day I am here with my Meowmies and Castle.

Meowmie got me and Castle a lovely Rotisserie Chicken again tonight - it's probably cos I have a visit to the Vet Place tomorrow for a check-up. I've been doing well really but I did do a sick-up the other day but otherwsie I am OK - eating well and feel good and strong. Managed to sink my claws into Meowmie a few times when she gave me my tablet earlier. I didn't draw blood but there are nice little red marks on her arm now. I will probably draw blood tomorrow when she puts me in my carrier and takes me to the Vet Place in Stormie's Limousine!!!

Changing the subject completely, I would like to thank Jinx at Under The Stairs for asking me to be part of the logo for her Mum's new website - Cat Bloggers - a chat forum for all the cat bloggers. Please stop by and join up! I am SO proud...I hope Yao-Lin does not object to another Meezer being given this honour *slightly nervous*

Here is a picture of me and Castle in a Chicken Trance - we had just stuffed out faces on the lovely stuff! Just so you know, I used to have whiskers like my brother!

Storm, my human was wondering if Castle is lilac or blue? He reminds her of the Siamese who went before.

It's always good to be thankful for each day. We live that here with our Georgia.

Thats a great face! We think chicken coma's should be a required part of kitty life. :)

I love the chicken-trance faces!

Good luck on your vet visit, Storm. I think you might live another 8 YEARS. That's what I hope.

Those faces are adorable! I really like your fangs, they look fierce! Good luck with the VET, I bet they'll be nice to you 'cause you're so beautiful.

What a great chick-hen trance!!

We hope your vet visit goes well for you tomorrow.

We loved what you said over on Chey's blog "i can’t take the majority of politicians seriously - it’s just showbiz for ugly people"

That's so funny!!!
