    (Starting this 1/4 condo tonight … a little early…its midnight so technically 1/4 though…. we will be leaving here at 6:30am and I don’t know that I will have time to post then.)


    Well in a few hours… we will be taking Jupiter to his chemo treatment. This is his 5th and final treatment. Although I am excited that this is his last treatment, I am incredibly scared and worried. I am praying the side effects don’t get any worse as they have with each treatment. I want this to be an easy treatment with little side effects so he can get back on the road to feeling better. Once again, I ask you , my LL family….to keep my sweet baby Jupe in your thoughts and prayers today and over the next few days as he recovers from this chemo.


    Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers, vines and support. This week has been a rough week for Jupiter and I am so thankful I have you all here to support us.

    We are here now (posting from my phone) and they have already taken him in the back for his treatment. He did pretty good with the car ride today and really hoping he does well the rest of the day.


    Thank you all so much

    Jupiter is sitting at the door again and crying. He wants to go outside to eat grass... He did this after his last chemo treatment too.

    Petco is all out of cat grass.... The locally owned small pet store doesnt sell it. I am not sure what to do...

    Does anyone have any ideas of alternatives?

    Jamie,

    Dang if its anything like here you can`t see the grass. He must be nauseous? I sure do hope he gets to feeling better. Do have anything to give him for nausea?

    There is snow outside still on the grass... (because of the snow... the grass will be nasty and dead......and theres no really like... open fields......and the salt trucks get the salt everywhere and i dont want him eating that.... sure that would probably make him really sick)

    They gave him a cerenia injection today. And we have cerenia for him but we dont give til tomorrow since he got the injection today.

    Glad you made it back safe and sound. ;-)
    I wonder if he could eat parsley? You could get that at a grocery store. Here's an article to read. http://www.veterinarypartner.com/Content.plx?C=32&A=1315
    I think I would call the pet stores around and ask them if they have cat grass. Sometimes it's hard to find in the big ole store, and maybe you just didn't see it when you went there.
    I buy these and grow them when needed. The grow fast.

    I went to the site of the manufacturer of the pet grass : http://bellrockgrowers.com/index.html

    I searched the store locators and called every store that sells it within an hour and 20 minute drive from here.

    apparently the supplier was closed for 10 days for the holidays.....all the stores have said they are out of stock.

    What other stores do you have around you? I would think a lot of stores that have pet sections, may have cat grass for sale.
    Even some live catnip to nibble on may help his tummy.

    Another thought on grass - there are some juice shops in town here that sell custom blended fruit/veggie juices. They usually have some oat grass growing for people who like that added to their drink. Maybe they would sell you some?

    I think we've only got one supplier of pet grass around here too, cause I know the stores have run out before. That's when I started buying the seeds but that's still a few days of growing.

    I'm so happy Jupiter is home and DONE with chemo! :YMHUG:

    I feel dumb because I didnt think of this earlier... Jupiter likes lettuce. When I buy a bag of salad I usually give him a piece and he likes it.

    I think we will try that first...

    I did call around to many stores that have pet sections and none sale live grass. Not even the nursery that grows and sells plants has any kind of grass.

    I'm sorry that Jupiter feels yucky. Hopefully the lettuce will help. Another place to try for the cat grass is the grocery store, I can usually find cat grass in the floral section at our Price Chopper grocery stores. Good luck!

    maybe some green beans may help too??? I don't know if it's an old wives tale, but I heard that the reason why dogs eat grass is because their bodies need the chlorophyll and green beans would help if there was no grass....but I hope he like parsley and the salad and it helps settle his tummy.

    Ralph and I want to thank you guys again for stopping by and giving Ralphie (and he other furbabies) all those specials! I am sure that he will enjoy them as the days go on!

    And what a big relief to know that this is the last time he has to go thru this.
    Hang in there everyone...everyday he will get a bit better.
    You guys have come so far and done such a GREAT job with him.

    1/5 UPDATE

    Just wanted to post a quick update...

    Seems like Jupe is feeling pretty crappy today. Atleast hes not meowing for grass today though....Hes hasnt eaten more then a few bites all day so will be offering him some iams maximum calorie food next... He seems to like this food and will atleast take a few bites on his own... so if hes not going to be eating a lot of quantity today, probably best to give him food with lots of calories.

    Yesterday they gave him 5mg of the chemo instead of the regular 6mg. His oncologist reduced the dose in hopes of a little less side effects especially since the side effects seem to be getting worse with each treatment.



    an update from last night too...
    "jupe would lay down and keep moving like he couldnt get comfy......and i know its a little chilly in here.....so....i used the last of my money and i went to dollar general and got him a little pet bed... was $5.75.... best couple of bucks i couldve spent!!

    i got home put some catnip in it.... showed it to him... put him in it.....he immediately took a nap finally

    he fits inside of it sooo perfectly so i think it keeps him warm too... i think his sisters are going to steal it from him though lol hopefully i can get them one too......im just so happy it helped him to rest easier

    i could just tell he was having a hard time getting comfy... and when he laid down and fell asleep i started to cry cause i was so happy!!!"


    I will try to post a pic of him laying in it... hes so cute!!!! if he was any bigger he wouldnt fit! :D



    thank you all so much for visits and support

    It is very sad that Jupiter is having such uncomfortable side effects, and I am very sorry that this is happening. Per your comments above made in Sept., I thought that cats tolerate chemo well and don't have side effects but it seems that Jupiter is not tolerating it very well. I am curious because I know someone who is considering chemo for their cat and I don't want to mislead her by telling her the wrong information. What does your vet say about the side effects now that Jupiter has them? I thought she said she wouldn't use chemo if the effects were bad. Thanks for the advice. My friend is very concerned about moving ahead and I really want to help her. Do you still recommend chemo now that Jupiter is finished? Thank you so much and I hope Jupiter feels better soon.

    I am so sorry to hear that Jupiter is still not feeling well. That was quick thinking on your part to go out and get him that bed. Hopefully he'll get some really good healing time sleeping in it. I'll be watching for that picture. Can't wait to see it. My heart goes out to the little fellow. Continued healing vines to Jupiter.

    Jamie, we are thinking of Jupe snuggled into his new little bed and hoping that it will make him feel lots better. Isn't it neat the way big kitties love little beds and little boxes? Rusty is way too big for his little bed, but it's his favorite place to sleep during the day. Stu used to cram himself into tiny boxes, the smaller the better (he was a big, 17-lb. cat).

    Thinking of you tonight and praying that Jupiter will get over the chemo side effects quickly. Sending some eating vines, too.

    So happy to know that Jupe is D O N E with the chemo. And the dumb and awful side effects. When he gets over this round of side effects that's it!!! (My ex bf's kitty went through chemo and had the same side effects Jupe is having. They totally went away when it was over)

    Sending appy vines and feel better vines to Jupe and just keep in mind that there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel!
    YAY Jupe, Jamie & Dane ...you did it!

    Hugs to you all!!!

    LOVE THE PICS AND THE BED :)

    I was hoping to type up a better worded response to post.... but still on pain medicine so instead will just copy the message I sent her... just in case anyone else interested in the questions I responded to.



    "Okay, I am also going to post this response in my condo later. But will probably do a better job of explaining it later... I am on pain medicine and cant think clearly but wanted to answer your question a little now. I also ask that you read my response later when I can think a little clearer :lol:

    They did tell me to expect him to be sleepy for a few days. After the first 2 treatments although he seemed out of it and sleepy... the side effects werent all that bad since those were the only side effects... and since they only lasted a few days.

    To be honest with you, I think the HARDEST part of all this for Jupiter has been his anxiety and the constipation issue.

    Knowing what I know now... (like knowing how Jupe responds to chemo).... had I known this before the chemo treatments... I still would have opted to get the chemo done. Although it really sucks seeing him likes this, the chemo greatly increases the chances of him living a long and healthy life. He only had 5 treatments and I am really hoping since this was the last one.... he will start feeling much better.

    Quality of life is so very important to me... and I took that into consideration before doing the chemo. I figured we could get through a few rough weeks in order to reach the goal of him being healthy and happy again. If it was more then 5 chemo treatments, I cant say that I would have gotten the chemo. If chemo was a longterm plan (as in... if he would keep needing it for months or years.... I think that would have changed my mind about getting the chemo).

    And remember, this is only MY opinion. Every cat is different and I dont think a longterm chemo treatment plan would work well for Jupiter but for some cats maybe it would. I think when considering chemo, every cat is different and it depends on the cats personality too. Jupes a fighter... even with his bad anxiety. He is so determined. When he had his leg amputated I thought it was going to slow him down... I was so worried about him. Hes so determined nothing slowed him down. For me that helped to prove that he could handle chemo.... (However if the side effects were ANY worse... for example him constantly vomiting or something.... at that point I would chose not to further continue the chemo treatments). It took me a long time to consider and think about this decision... its something that needs a lot of thought and consideration... and must be prepared for whatever happens. "
