We Livestrong Today


We are really lucky kitties - I have not personally known what cancer is and does. I remember poor Monty-cat, but he left us because of crf and that made us very sad so like every one I know grief. And it has been such a sad time recently on the blogosphere with many good felines lost. We have read the other blogs and seen what cancer can do, and the pain it brings and today we live in hope there can be cures. So we are doing our bit to 'raise awareness', and as King Kitty Cat of Finland (North) it is my royal duty to do such things.
First we are having great fun doing yellow-stuff. We have a new blankie, and Äiti found us a yellow mouse. All day we are going to be yellowing away. And we will make sure we put extra yellow in our litter box business, hehehe.
And we have a very serious message too - here Mirsku-veli demonstrates to you that you need to keep checking for the nasty cancers. Early detection saves lives! Make your humans do it.
And finally, I may have not lost anyone from perheeni but many many years ago Äiti's äiti died from breast cancer. Still not a day goes by when she doesn't remember her and wishes she were alive.
With many thanks to the Catblogosphere and everyone involved - the whole blogosphere seems to have gone yellow today, and there's a special welivestrongtoday blog created by Milo and Alfie. And if you haven't got involved, just join in and wear yellow. And fight that c....... stuff.

We hope that one day this terrible disease will be gone and there will be no more need for a day like this. Until then, we LIVESTRONG.

We love your yellow post. And we think it's very admirable for the King Kitty Cat of Finland (North) to speak out against the nasty cancer. We're purring for a cure.

Excellent post! Mirksu sets a wonderful example for self-examination. Our Mommy lost several family members to cancer, so she makes sure to have herself regularly checked.

Great post! We went yellow too this weekend to honour and remember all those who have been touched by terrible cancer!

Also, I wanted to thank you for leaving a comment on my blog when Molly died. We're trying to drop by to visit everyone who offered us such comfort :-)
