Kato is a true survivor. He gives hope to everyone who is dealing with cancer in their furry loved ones.

Plus he's damn cute. I always think of the picture of him in between the cushions of the couch . . .

Thanks, Sis! :D

He makes good use of the couch cushions. I glanced over at him today and he had 2 bully sticks propped up between the cushions. lol I should have snapped a pic. It was cute.

Awww, thanks, Christine! He certainly loves his Skippy. lol

I've been lazy and haven't made him any almond butter in a while. I'll have to get some almonds this week.

Hi Christine! :)

Kato definitely lost a bit of weight....which he needed, to be honest with you. He lost most of his whiskers, some eyelashes and his coat is thinner. He looks pretty good though! :D

He's going for chemo on Sunday. (Vinblastine)

After the Vinblastine he has 2 weeks off, then he gets Adria and another CBC the week after that and he's done!

He's been amazing throughout! :love:

Aww, thanks! I feel the same way about Mick!

I'm incredibly relieved, but a little nervous about stopping chemo. I imagine that's normal though.

But Kate will have regular check-ups and blood tests done, right? I will be glad when Micks chemo is done, but for obvious reasons... at least Kate is well-behaved... :wink:
Do you have instructions on what to watch for? I haven't even had time to think that far ahead yet... :P

I haven't spoken with the Oncologist about it yet, but will in the next week or so. :)

I'm very lucky that Kato is so good!
