We Livestrong Together Today




Today we are turning our blog yellow along with many of our pals to promote cancer Awareness. Our Pals Milo and Alfie were the organizers of this day for the Cat Blogosphere. Here is what they say:

"Cat (and Dog) Bloggers around the World are working together to promote LiveStrong by going YELLOW on their blogs on October 2nd 2010. All bloggers are invited to join in! Our message is FOCUS, NEVER give up HOPE, Have a FIGHTING attitude, have COURAGE and know we ALL SUPPORT you. LIVESTRONG! We believe in the POWER of the PURR! Love Milo and Alfie xx =^..^= =^..^= "

We HATE cancer. Our wonderful sisfur Sniffie had cancer. When we started this post we were using this pretty picture that our friend Ann from Zoolatry made for us. The Zoolatry Dad has been fighting cancer and Milo and Alfie's Mom and Dad have both suffered from this awful disease.

Unfortunately, our Sweet Sniffie left us for the Bridge on Tuesday, Sept 21. She is now an Angel at the Rainbow Bridge. We miss her so much.

What really upsets Mom is that there is so little research being done for FELINE cancer. Yes, there are many research facilities doing work on cancer for animals but most of it is for dogs. Cats have different kinds of cancer and we need more research facilities that are working specifically for our types of cancers. Mom will post more about this when we do our memorial post for Sniffie.
We need to find a cure for this terrible disease before more of our friends and family members are affected.




Our friends Samantha and Clementine and their Mom Chandra have put together this amazing slideshow. Click on the slideshow to see many of our pals who are participating.

Someday mom was looking information in spanish about feline diseases like feline cancer and FIV for a proyect, but there is not much information about them, in our country people don't even know this diseases exist in cats! Humans need to do more: inform people about them, educate people about them, and find a cure...

We're sorry that Cancer came and took Sniffie away. We hope that someday soon Cancer will be history and no one will have to suffer the loss it brings again.

We have been thinking of you today with the loss of lovely Sniffie so recently it must be very hard for you.
We pray there is a cure for humans and animals soon to smack this disease on the nose and knock it out.

What a lovely way to honor Sniffie's memory. Paws up for getting the word out about the lack of research into feline cancer. Not only do cats get different cancers they also react differently to medicines and treatments so it is very important that research be done specifically for CATS.

Comforting Hugs for all of you, we knows how much you still miss Sniffie.

We MUST LiveStrong for us and for those who have fought the good fight and lost to this miserable disease. Today we honor those who have lost their battle, those who are fighting their battle and those who have fought and won! They are all our HEROES!

Today we stand tall with all of the LiveStrong participants. Together we WILL find a cure in our lifetime!

ZOOLATRY said...

Sniffie - it broke our hearts to have you leave us, all too soon... but we know you are dancing in yellow sunbeams today!
To your sweet Mom & your sisfurs and brofurs... LIVESTRONG Together, friends... it's the only way, the best way.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

WE are overwhelmed by the amount of support the Blogosphere has for this disease!

The Island Cats said...

We are so sorry that Sniffie went to the bridge because of cancer. We agree...there should be more research on feline cancer. We hope that one day there won't be any cancer in the world!!

LiveStrong!!

We are so sad that Sniffie went to the bridge! We love your yellow post!

Cory said...

We purr extra hard today in honor of our furriend Sniffie. She was very special and I can only hope she's hanging out with our guardian angel Maggie who we lost to cancer in 2005. I think they would love being floofy angels together.

xoxo Cory and family

We are so sorry that cancer has affected so many of our friends, human and feline. Either through their own struggles or losing loved ones.

We hope there is more research for feline cancer, and feline diseases in general.

Posting today is a wonderful tribute to Sniffie. Sending our thoughts.

I still think of you often and your losing Sniffie. I keep you in my heart. Today we join you in supporting an end to cancer - in all beings.

Cat said...

I am thinking about Sniffie today! Cancer is terrible and effects furry and human alike. Our blog is yellow today too and now you have raised awareness in us all that cancer research for cats is sorely lacking!

Livestrong and Lovestrong too!

Sweet Praline said...

I had no idea there was no cancer research for cats. I'm remembering those who lost the battle and celebrating with those who've fought and won.

I have a special place in my heart for remembering Sniffie today.

BeadedTail said...

We've been thinking of you today and are sending purrs. This was a lovely post and we do hope they increase the research on kitty cancer so no more kitties and their families have to deal with it. We really hope they find a cure for all cancer very soon.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

Together we all show our support in making cancer awareness today. Too many lives have been lost. Hopefully some day cancer will be something of the past never to worry about again.

Shelly said...

I'm so sorry for the loss of Sniffle! I've lost two cats in just over 14 months from liver cancer. I had no idea they were ill until about a week before they died. They were relatives so there is a genetic link. Sadly, I have 6 more of their relatives. I pray that none of them come down with the dreadful disease.
