My Name is Leo

An adored cat deals gracefully with a jaw tumor while his owner quietly falls apart.

Recent photos

The first photo was taken on Wednesday, right after his first dose of Amoxicillin. The left side of his face (right in photo) was quite swollen. This was probably the only time all day Wednesday that he wasn't curled up into a little ball sleeping.

The tumor and swelling up close and personal...taken before the latest course of antibiotics took effect.

But today, he was feeling better -- so much so that he jumped on my lap and gave me one of his trademark shoulder massages. It's been days since he's done that.

The photo below was taken this afternoon -- you may be able to see that his face is narrower than it was on Wednesday.

(If you notice a golden glow around Leo, it's the massive quantities of his fur embedded in that chair.)(Also, he plays a mean acoustic guitar!)

I love the cat hair chair! Is anyone else allowed to sit there?

May I request "Smoke On the Water"? I'd like to see a cat playing, at the very least, the chords on that. :-) (Or is that an "electric only" request?)

I guess someone else COULD sit in that chair, but who would want to? The tweedy weave of the fabric seems to have melded with the cat fur to form a entirely new fiber that resists defuzzing.

Leo's more of a Michael Penn fan (Look what the Cat Drug In) but a little tuna might persuade him to stray outside his normal repertoire.
