The Strongest Man in the World

Well my little man seems to be recovering from his latest surgery pretty well. :) His fur is slowly growing back over his face and arm and the parts of Cancer they burned off have scabbed up pretty well and should heal soon. When I first got him home I kept him inside for a few days. We went out together at night so he could go to the toilet privately (giggle) and have a little sniff around etc :) He really hates being locked up inside and I hate taking that freedom from him, even though I worry about him so much and would rather have him inside with me all the time. He just seems to get a little depressed being locked up and I would rather the last few months of his life to be spent happy and carefree :)

He finished a course of anti-biotic tablets on Wednesday, so all he has to take from now on is some pain killer and anti inflammatory drops in his food and eye drops twice a day. He hates the eye drops the most, but I think he also understands he needs to have them. I always cuddle him so close after I give those and tell him how much I love him. I can't believe the strength he has. He is such a brave and humble kitty! I am so proud of him for all he has suffered and gone thru. I just wish now we could have cured him, but I know he has had a wonderful life and he has given me so much happiness and so many beautiful memories. It's going to be very hard to say goodbye to him :(

I would like to thank Ibah so much for her support with helping to get the Jordy Story out there and also recently for the wonderful Card she has made for people to sign and send their love and wishes to Jordy. It is really appreciated so much!! {{{{{{hug}}}}}

hi Craig

I've just stumbled upon your blog via Flickr and I was very saddened to see what you are going through with your beautiful cat. I know only too well how extremely difficult and heartwrenching it can be, seeing your beloved animals going through these things. My heart goes out to you both. Jordy is clearly much loved.

cheers, Tracy

Hi Tracy. Thank you so much for your comment. Jordy is doing well at the moment and it's really nice to see him that way :) I wished tho he could stay like that till his time came. I don't even want to think about how things will be in a few months time, so I will cherish the wonderful time we have together now :) :)

He's very fortunate to have someone who loves him so much. :)
