We're Baaaaaack

The Mom -

Since things have been so hectic over the past school year, I've neglected this blog. What's worse? I forgot all the log in information for the other Flock O' Fuzzies blog so I had to recreate this one. *rolls eyes* Oh well.

As a lot of you know, Ayla (my little grumpy girl) was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma. It's a nasty type of skin cancer that has made her oral cavity home. Unfortunately it is malignant and there really isn't anything we can do. She is still snarky, proof of this was last night when she gave Frankie such a thwap that you could hear it 10 feet away. Her appetite comes and goes. Until today, she has been scarfing down quite a bit of Stinky Goodness. This morning, however, she barely touched it. That has me worried, as you can imagine.

We've decided the best recourse for the old girl is just to make her as comfortable as possible. When she is no longer her snarky self, that's when we'll make the tough decision. As long as she shows some enjoyment to life, we'll be happy.

Have you tried stage 1 baby food meat with her? the kind without the onion powder. When my ralphie was sick with cancer he scarfed that down like there was no tomorrow. At first we mixed it half and half with his stinky goodness, then just the baby food. It's also good to dilute and put in a syringe too. - Meezer Mom Mary

Ha! Ayla kicks the others off her blog, and the first post on theirs is about her!

Our Scruffy didn't slow down until the morning her tumors suddenly reached something vital. Thankfully, the end was brief.

I think you have chosen the wise course of action. I hope Ayla continues to feel good for a long time yet.

I agree with Karen Jo. Long live Ayla!
