Sniff Sniff ~ My Happy Place December 28th

 When I'm feeling sad I just look at my Sniff and my courage returns...

As if he could be any cuter.  I just love my Sniff Sniff.
This past week the radiation has been catching up with me.
  I hurt a little more.  I burn a little more, but my Sniff 
and Arvid are always there to make me feel better.

Today begins my last four treatments that will specifically
 target just the area where the cancer is located.  The first 16 treatments 
targeted the entire left breast. Right now I really have difficulty lifting 
my arm up, and it now hurts.  My doctor has been "warning" me that after
 radiation my skin could develop large listers, peeling and extreme burning 
sensation.  So far most of my symptoms have been mild.  Just will be
 happy when this is now over and I will begin once again to heal

No matter what he does I find it too cute.  Even when I 
end up getting scratches from him while I play roughly
 with him.  Sniff loves a little rough playtime.

I have way too many pictures of Sniff, but that will not stop
 me from taking more.  Everything he does is just cute.

Arvid says I pay more attention to Sniff 
than I do to him 😂 and he's probably right. 

He's never far from me nor Arvid.  I stress when 
I have to leave him alone even for a day.  He's 
so used to having us with him at all times.

Sniff has moved around with us approximately nine times.  
More than I like, but he has done good so far.  Hopefully we
 will settle down in our current homes and not more moves
 in the close future.  I think I see a move sometime
 back to Fort Lauderdale, but not this minute.

A cat doesn’t care if you are smart or dumb, 
give him your heart and he will give you his.

Your house will always be blessed with love, 
laughter, and friendship if you have a cat.

I love my Sniff more than I love most people. 
Probably more than is healthy.  Nah...

Cats can work out mathematically the exact 
place to sit that will cause most inconvenience.

When all is said and done, I could not imagine not having
 Sniff in our lives.  My Brutus will forever be my Baby, he took
 a part of me that will forever be with him, and I miss him 
and love him like I have never loved a kitty before. 

 Shadow was with us for such a short time.  But Sniff
 is here now.  He is everything I need to keep smiling and to 
stay focused.  Together with Arvid they complete my life.

There are two means of refuge from 
the miseries of life: music and cats...
