Love is such a good thing...

Even though I was feeling sleepy and stayed downstairs most of the night, around 1am I scratched to be let in the bedroom. Mommy picked me up, and cat-a-vater-ed me to the bed. I then lay in Mommy's arms, between her and Daddy, for about 20 minutes. I let mom pet and snuggle and kiss me the whole time, and I purred like crazy. I'm not much of a snuggler, I don't usually tolerate it more than a minute or two at a time. I think we both felt a lot better after saying all those "I love you's " to each other.

Please note, I'm still able to do the stairs well enough mom is not yet worried about me falling and hurting myself. As my disease progresses, she will probably restrict me from going up the stairs, but right now she wants to give me as much freedom as possible.

I'm still eating well. Mom thinks it such a cruel irony...she's been used to worrying about my food intake all this time with the chemo, and now I'm sicker than ever and I'm eating like crazy. But I'm still happy, and I'm not in any pain. My legs just don't work very well. The wobbling seems to have gotten a tiny bit worse overnight, so it seems that the chemo I had will not be taking care of it. If we make it til Tuesday mommy can have them try the other chemo, but she's not sure she wants to put me through it yet.We've had three months of remission to make all kinds of good memories. Mom Dad and I wouldn't trade those memories for the world! And we've made all these friends on the blogosphere.

Ohhhh Texas, we are all sitting here with really leaky eyes, because we want so much for you to get better. We can't deal with the fact that you might be leaving for the Bridge, and we don't know what else to say right now except that we love you so very, very much, and that we will purr and purray for a miracle ...
Many hugs, purrs and headbutts,

Many leaking eyes in the YooKay!

oh Texie...Stormie had wobbly legs too, but she also refused to eat in her last few days of life which just added to the problem. she was wobbling cos she was weak as well.

we are going to light the candles next to Stormie tonight in your honour (there is a pic on Stormie's blog of where she now sits, with a candle either side of her). we will send you some positive thoughts and much love to see you through this very sad and difficult time...x

Oh Texas, we will purr for you. Our Georgia has had a brain tumor and has wobbled for the last several years (although if you tell your vet what it is they say there is only 3 to 6 months survival rate!). See what good purring can do?! I think you will make it much longer because we are all purring hard.

The Meezers said...

oh Texas, mommy is leaking really bad. we love you very much and are really glad you are not in pain. the wobbly might get better, and at least you can still do the stairs. one day at a time Texas. you never know what's around the corner, so just enjoy each other.

Mickey said...

Texas,we will send you purrs so can live your best life as long as possible.

Purrs Mickey,Georgia & Tillie

Texas, dat is a furry nice thing you did, snuggling wif your Mom! You is a furry strong kitteh and if anyone could beat this stuff, it's you, and sometimes it's hard on Moms to see their kittehs sick, too. So going and snuggling up with your Mom even when you are feeling so sick is furry thoughtful of you.
