The daily adventures of four Sphynx: Dragonheart, a black and white tuxedo; Merlin, a blue lynx point and white fighting large cell lymphoma; Devi, a black and white rescue; and Chloe, a crazy tortoiseshell.

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!
