I came home recently from spending time in Qld with my sweetheart :) I had the most wonderful time and I didn't want it to end. I wish we were still together right now *sigh*. I got some wonderful photos while I was there ... lots of nice memories :)

This is a stitch of three photos of the same guy surfing :) I think it turned out really cool :)

Jordy Update :) :)

Hi Everyone :) I am so sorry it has been so long since I did an update in here.

Jordy is doing exceptionally well!!! It has now been a little over a year since he had his operation and had the Cancer (and his eye) removed. He still has cancer around his good eye and it bled for the very first time last night, since his last freezing about 8 months ago. It was at that time the Vet suggested I had Jordy put down!! I am so glad I didn't listen!! Apart from his sore looking eye (and me wiping it every night) there appears to be nothing wrong with my little Alien! He still goes outside most of the day, purrs, brings me his prey to show off and is not in pain.

Thank you once again to those that have given so lovingly to the Jordy Fund in Red Bubble. I have been VERY quiet in RB over the last few months and so the Fund has slowed down a lot. But we appreciate all the help we have gotten this far :) :) {{{{{{hugs}}}}}}

Mr Sleepy Head :)

I am so sorry it has been so long since I did an update on Jordy. I know there are a lot of you that check back here often and I am sorry it has taken me so long to let you know how the little man is doing.

Jordy has started to slow down a lot. I have noticed a big change in him over the last month or so. He has gone from being a pretty well outside Kitty, to being inside 90% of the time and sleeping either by my feet, or up in the spare room in the cool and dark. It's very hard to see this in my Jordy. I sorta know that this is probably the start of the end and now I will need to find the strength to watch closer for signs of pain with him.

At this stage I cannot see that he is in any extra pain that would concern me. Being a 14 year old cat (and with the heat wave we have been having here lately) his being inside might just be a sign that he is getting old. He has arthritis in his hind legs so that may be playing up and making him feel more like being inside too. His eye has not bled again since the last operation at the vets and that seems like a good sign to me. I do notice his eye is always watery and I can see he has cancer lumps on his third eyelid as well, so I would think there would be a bit of discomfort from that too.

I need to start thinking about what to do if Jordy decides he wants to leave before I have sold my house and moved back to Ballarat. I so want to get him cremated so that I can still take him *home* and bury him properly at some stage where I can still visit him and won't feel like I have left him behind here in Western Australia. Burying him here will be the hardest thing I will do, if it comes to that. :( The only thing is the nearest place I maybe could get him cremated is in Perth (which is two hours drive for me). I couldn't make that drive with him beside me in the car. If anyone from Western Australia is reading this and you know of a place closer to Kellerberrin that cremates Pets ... I would be very appreciative of your help.

I took these photos of Jordy today :) :) He followed me outside this afternoon while I did a bit of Gardening. :) He is still outside so he must be enjoying himself ... and that makes his Daddy VERY happy :) :)

Thank you so much to everyone who has followed Jordy's story and has given to the Jordy Fund I have going on Red Bubble to pay for his Vet bills. You support and love is amazing and it means so much to both Jordy and myself :)
