Millie Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Monday. 

Millie is giving a sneak preview of our upcoming Chewy review.

I have a few medical updates. Millie could use some prayers. Last Tuesday, I felt a small lump on his side so we took him to the vet on Wednesday. The vet did a needle aspiration  and it is a mast cell tumor. Apparently in cats, they don’t tend to spread. Joanie had one removed from her face a few years ago and Angel Lucy had a toe removed when she had one. Ideally, we would just get it removed to be on the safe side. Nothing is ideal though, Millie has a heart murmur and is almost 15. He has also lost weight despite the fact that his thyroid is under control with meds. He will need an ultrasound to check his heart before any surgery, he also needs an ultrasound on his tummy to be sure he doesn’t have a cancer.

KaTwo’s lumps are a little bigger. Fortunately, her appetite is still good and she is still playful and enjoying life.

Sammy is also scaring me. He has a bump on his nose. I have been watching for about 10 days and it is still there. I think it is a little smaller, but I am not sure if that is wishful thinking. I will be making an appointment for him soon.

Today Prancie has a recheck on some of her blood work and Emmy is getting her annual blood tests. Seems like we are always at the vet.




  1. WOW…..that’s a whole lot of things to keep an eye on and with as many kitties as live there, it’s one of those “constant” worries. Hoping all the prayers we’ve been sending are being heard and that your furramily will be alright.

    Hugs, Teddy and Mom too

  2. That’s always sad when one of our darlings is sick. Arthur has running eyes, but the vet said it go away from alone. Wish all the best for poor Millie !

  3. Gee, we are sorry that you have so many medical issues going on. We purr for everyone and sure hope for the best.

  4. Sending tons of purrs and purrayers to all the kitties in need.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

  5. All of us here at the office are sends purrs and hugs to you and all your little ones. You really have your hands full. Hopefully, good news will be coming your way for all of them. Have a wonderful rest of your week.

  6. Purrayers and POTP for all of your kitties ! Any one of these things would be scary enough.

  7. Ellen,

    Poor kitties! Saying prayers all goes well. It’s hard to see any living creature suffering which I hope they aren’t but with critters, all you can do is go by how they act and I know that’s gotta be worrisome. Sending hugs your way, my friend!

  8. Millie seems a chronically ill kitty in good spirits as one scary thing after another manifests somewhere on him. . .poor sweet fellow!

  9. That’s a whole lot of things to worry about. We will cross our paws that all will do well with your loving care.

  11. Oh my, it sounds like you have your hands very full with vet bills! I hope all your fur babies come through their issues well. Despite all this, I hope your Monday has been a good day. xoxo

  12. Oh man, those stupid bumps are so nasty sometimes, and being older stinks because it adds to the troubles. We hope things will work out positively.

  13. We sure send lots of good thoughts to all the sick one. It is hard when a bunch get sick togeher. I will write in the blog tomorrow about Mom’s visit to the hospital.

  15. We’re sending lots of purrs and prayers for everykitty to be well! We’re so glad you have noticed all the lumps and bumps and are watching them so closely. The kitties are lucky to have such an attentive mom!

  16. I’m so sorry. We had to go the echocardiogram on Jazz, our miniature poodle, before they would remove his melanoma tumor and clean his teeth. It sounds like you have an experience site and difficult road ahead. I’m sorry. Sending POTP!

  17. Oh, lumps and bumps, we hate them!! We’re so sorry so many of the kitties are having issues. Hugs and prayers for all of you. ♥

  18. I’m sorry I’m so late in catching up on commenting. Please know that you all have our purrs and prayers! For what it’s worth, my angel Rosie underwent two surgeries (a dental and an eye removal) with a heart murmur and kidney disease. One surgery was when she was 18, and the other was when she was 21, and she came out of both with flying colors. All kitties are different, of course, but don’t lose hope, because our kitties are tougher than we sometimes realize. Purrs and prayers!

  19. Charlee: “We are sending purrs for everyone to stay well and feel good!”
    Chaplin: “Our sister Trouble the Kitty, who we never met, had a mast cell tumor when she got older.”
    Charlee: “Yes, Dennis told us all about it. It just sat there for years and never did anything.”
    Chaplin: “Dennis thought it meant Trouble was going to turn into a sailing ship, but he was wrong.”
