Bambi's Lament

I know our dear readers like to follow our blog because of the fun and interesting things we do. And of course, to adore your Queen... me!

I know no one wants to think of disturbing things willingly. Sometimes it can bring on such sadness to contemplate. As Queen, it's a big responsibility to take care of my realm and the sadness is overwhelming for me. But, I have to stop and take a moment to consider  if I am going to allow myself to continue being depressed by the sufferings of the world.

Ninja says life has a balance of both disturbing things and wonderful things. If we ignore the disturbing, we aren't fully experiencing life. I think he is correct because by ignoring cancer, which has been on my mind a lot lately, we will do nothing to stop it. So it is important to shine light onto it.

I've been thinking about the upcoming LIVESTRONG event and decided to do my part by wrapping up in my yellow blanket today. I want to support the effort to rid the world of Cancer. Yellow is a great color. Don't you think? Yellow represents hope, warmth, victory, and so many things.

One may think that cancer fund raising by humans would not affect cancer in Cats, but it does. As mentioned in our previous posting cats and dogs do get cancer. All animals get cancer. Did you know that? Many of them volunteer their lives to helping researchers discover new ways of understanding and treating cancer, including cats!

The other day I told you about Miss E's dog and cat friends who had cancer. Many of you wanted to know more about the bone cancers we can get, so here is a link that tells all about it.

Such a important point to make ~ people think cancer fund raising by humans does not affect cancer in Cats, but it does. They benefit from it too.
