World Cancer Day

We're pausing today from our kitten play to be serious as we recognize World Cancer Day.  
We're sure this day is meant to remember those who've fought this terrible disease and lost and to celebrate with those who've survived.  Mom Paula has several friends who've fought the disease and won and she has a couple of close friends who are fighting the battle now.  We are also purring for Mom Judi as she fights her recent cancer diagnosis.


It was this time last year that Sweet Praline was diagnosed with cancer (mast cell tumor of the spleen).  Sweet Praline lived 15 1/2 wonderful years and we trust she is young and cancer free at the Bridge now.  


We also lost our little brother, Beignet, in August from cancer (vaccine related fibrosacroma) at the young age of 11 weeks old.  He was such a loving little mancat and we know he is being mothered and protected by Sweet Praline at the Bridge.


We're swatting and stomping on this nasty disease and purr that more and more cures will be found.  
 Take that, you nasty cancer bug!

I stomp on you, cancer!
