LIVESTRONG October 2, 2010



We Furrydance cats, and Teri join MILO AND ALFIE AND JAN in focusing awareness of those affected by cancer, by going Yellow for LIVESTRONG Day 2010. We didn't know we had any yellow outfits, but we do and to show our support, we dressed up!




LIVESTRONG Day helps raise awareness of cancer, those who are fighting the good fight and those who are survivors...both human and animal! While our Teri has not lost a family member to cancer, she has lost two kitties to cancer.


Her very first kitty, Cascais, had intestinal cancer, as did one of her Cornish Rex, Skiddy. They both lived many months after their diagnosis, and Teri knows each extra day with them was a gift.

And brave Trevor, who lived in a home with heavy smokers for most of his life, came back home to Teri when he was an old cat and not too long after that, he was diagnosed with nasal cancer, most likely due to inhaling all that cigarette smoke for so long. To think that his cancer might have been prevented makes Teri sad to have lost him to it.


We are proud to GO YELLOW for LIVESTRONG Day and spread the awareness with the message:

We believe in the Power of the Purr!

  5. We're so sorry that your lost Trevor to this awful disease. Knowing that it was completely preventable must have made the lost just that much harder to bare.

    We hope that someday soon Cancer will be history

  25. We read this a long time ago and just forgot to comment.
    The outfits are just beautiful! You posed very well for them, Brighton and Kiki!

    We hate cancer. It is a useless and tragic disease and always involves a great fight.

    We hope you have a very happy and wonderful day today.
    I must end here because mom says she is having a difficult time typing when I am helping her type some extra letters - I don't get that.

    bonks to all of you
