26 Months!



We are celebrating today! Here is what my mom said on the layout (click it to view it larger): "Back in February 2016, Merlin was diagnosed with large cell lymphoma and given 1-3 months to live. April 4, 2018, marks 26 months since then. The specialist vets now think he was either misdiagnosed, so he actually has small cell lymphoma, which has a better prognosis, or else he is in remission. Either way, he is our magical, miracle Merlin!" I can tell you that I pretty much always have soft stools these days, and frequently I end up with poo on my butt, my tail, and other parts of me. I often wipe my bum on the floor by scooching my butt across it, leave poo smear art! My dad is not terribly impressed with that, for some reason. Otherwise, I'm doing well. Still playing and chasing my little sister Chloe when I feel like it. I have some loose skin on my belly, but who cares about that! Thank you all for your purrs, prayers, and positive thoughts!

Frootbat Friday: The Girls

So a bunch of you have been asking how the girls are getting along. Well, here are Chloe and Devi sharing our mom’s lap. So you could say they are getting along! There is still some fighting, hissing, and growling on occasion, but there are also moments of peaceful co-existence and even some love and affection.

Happy 10th Birthday Merlin!

Today is my 10th birthday! We are so happy that I am still here to celebrate it! We never imagined that I would make it to 10! Thank you all for your purrs, prayers, and positive thoughts.
I'm doing pretty good. Still have soft stools a lot and still vomit bile every now and then (including this morning), but I'm still eating, playing, purring, and loving life.
We don't know how much longer I have, but we are just enjoying all the time we have together!
