I Get By With A Lil Help From My Friends


Posted by Rebecca, July 19th, 2011

I am very very happy to report that Darwin is back home safe and happy. He ran straight to his food bowl and is currently sleeping in his usual spot, next to his toy 🙂

His oncologist called him an amazing cat today, which we already knew, but to have someone who you are trusting your animal’s life with say that is very reassuring and melts my heart. After getting his updated blood work, she could not believe that he is eating, drinking and playing when he is so sick. My baby’s a fighter and I couldn’t be more proud.

He’s very happy to be reunited with his dadda, his toy, his food bowl, his water bowl and his spot in the family room… despite his little shaved legs and belly.

I’m seriously overwhelmed with all of the responses we’ve received about Darwin and I haven’t had a chance to reply to them. THANK YOU. Seriously. You all make me feel less crazy and make me feel like we’re doing the right thing for him.

I said yesterday that I’m going to be taking it easy this week, but if you miss my house rants, today (I know it’s almost midnight…) I guest posted over at Decor and the Dog!

Who wouldn’t love a blog called Decor and the Dog?? Michelle also has a new construction home and she does some amazing things with it. I couldn’t resist her offer to bring my cat-y self on over. Don’t tell my kids I crossed over for the day…

Since I am forcing myself to stay somewhat away from blogging this week (I’m busy at work, in my last week of summer classes with 2 final projects due Friday and spending time with Darwin), I am fortunate enough to have some amazing bloggers who volunteered to post for me the rest of this week.

I could not be more thankful for every single bit of this post tonight. Thank you oncologist, thank you readers, thank you Michelle and thank you to my guest posters (who will start tomorrow!) 🙂

    Yeah for Darwin! My friends also think I’m nuts for what we went through getting Lily diagnosed (with IBS). Having a pet, I don’t care what it is, that you love, and is a part of your family makes you want to do whatever it takes to just make them happy, safe and healthy again. Hope he has a good long life at home with you guys 🙂

  3. So glad he is home! What a lil trooper!

  4. So glad to hear that Darwin is home and feeling better!!

    Great news! You made a hard decision and I’m glad that he made it through. Don’t worry about doing what feels right for your cat!

  6. Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to create a superb article… but what can I say… I
    hesitate a lot and don’t seem to get anything done.

  7. I do not even understand how I stopped up here, however I thought
    this publish was great. I don’t understand who you might be
    but definitely you are going to a well-known blogger in case you aren’t already.
