Furry Fighter Day

Today is Furry Fighter Day, in memory of my sister Stormie who lived with lymphoma for almost two years - despite being given only 6-9 months to live when she was diagnosed. Meowmie helped Stormie write a blog about her condition and treatments and we hope it still serves as a source of hope for those who find themselves having to help their pets through this illness.

Two years today we said goodbye to her, and we all still miss her terribly. Today we will remember just what a wonderful and special little cat she was - The Most Beautiful Siamese Cat In The World. We love you Kormie xxx

It doesn't seem possible that two years have gone by since Stormie left. I remember reading about her fight so well. We will always remember her.

We'd like to join yoo in honouring and remembering beautiful Stormie on this speshull day. Mom had a lilac point siamese (1985 ~2004) before us and she said he was very speshull indeed. She said ALL siamese are speshull.

RIP beautiful Stormie. Yoo were an inspiration and we miss yoo.

I never knew Stormie, but Princess and mommie told me all about her, and you too Castle.
You are great friends, we are so glad to know you.
Stormies blog and treatment write up is very good, quite detailed and I am positive it will be a tremendous aid to anyone going through this ordeal.
all of you were so courageous.
Stormie, I know you are missing your sister and littermate. Castle, you and your mum are loved so much by us. It is good to see your blog.
I know you are keeping up a brave spirit for your mommies too

bonks and love always

I'll never forget Stormie. She died before I ever discovered her, but I read about her story when my first cat, Scampie, was dying from kidney failure. Reading about Stormie's fight gave me so much inspiration, and as a DIRECT RESULT of reading about Storm, I started

I still bawl my eyes out when I remember Storm, as it brings back so many feelings.

Thank you Stormie.

Castle, Stormie was such an inspiration to all of us. We still think about her, miss her and most of all love her. We also think about you and are sorry that Timmy had to venture on to the Bridge, but at least Stormie was there to greet him. We love you, Castle ♥

ABBY said...

We remember Stormie and her brave brave embrace of life. She is still an inspiration and your words give rise to that hope, that her life's potential showed. We share the disbelief in it being two years since she lost her battle.

Ramses said...

We too still miss Stormie... I do my best to make a 'chicken face' when there is chicken on offer here, but no one could do it as good as Storm! Oh well life goes on and with that new lives begin, just as they did here on Tuesday morning at breakfast time. It is good to remember those we have loved, while knowing there can always be room for others in our hearts.
