Greetings from outer space. Here come Kaijuu.

Or rather—a gigantic… Hello Kitty?

(Or something)

✨ Sparkles ✨

Pink everywhere.

(And I do mean—everywhere)

A truly lovecraftian sh… stuff of uncanny nightmares.

One of my favorite used bookstore cafes is right next to our oncology vet. #HelloKitty is there today for imaging and staging, and if that comes out clear, she‘ll get her 1st chemo treatment today. Waiting here is easier than there, but not by much.

Amputation is out, as it is too close to her vertebra. So anything we do is palliative, not a cure, but we can hope for 2+ yrs more with her if chemo works, if it hasn‘t spread yet.🤞#catsofinstagram

quietjenn Good luck ❤️ 2y

squirrelbrain Hope you get good news. 🤞 2y
ravenlee Best of luck for your baby. 2y
alisiakae @quietjenn @Susanita @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @squirrelbrain @ravenlee Thabk you so much! We got the good news we were hoping for, it‘s Stage 1 and hasn‘t spread. And they immediately started her 1st round of chemo today. 🙌🏽 There‘s no cure, but hopefully chemo will give us another few years with her. 2y
Addison_Reads @4thhouseontheleft I'm glad they were able to move so quickly with her treatment. I've been thinking about you and your kitty. I'm hoping for the best possible outcome you guys can get. 💚 2y
ravenlee Oh, hooray! When my fur baby got her cancer diagnosis it was too late to do anything but try to make her comfortable and the end cane quickly. I‘m so glad you have time with HelloKitty! Give her a scritch for me! 2y
alisiakae @ravenlee Thank you! Yeah, we lost our older kitty #Isabel in April after finding lung tumors way too late to do anything. The end came just a few days later, so fast we came home a day early from spring break. I was so glad today to hear HK's hadn't spread. 2y
squirrelbrain I‘m so pleased that you got the news you hoped for, and that she‘s started her treatment already. ❤️ 2y

#notbookrelated... but y'all need to know this about me if we're gonna be life-long book buddies:

I love Hello Kitty.

I may not have a collection like the ones we often see from dedicated fans, but when I heard the Cafe Truck would be making a stop in the PNW, you betcha my sweet husband stood in line with me for almost 2 hours so I could come home with these treasures 🥰

I'm a happy, happy gal 😁😊💕

RaeLovesToRead Too cute!! 🥰🥰 2y
Librariana @RaeLovesToRead 😊 My birthday is next month, so there was a little bit of self-absorbed overindulgence in the TREAT 👏 MAH 👏 SELF 👏 department 😁 2y
RaeLovesToRead I approve! 😁🥳🥳🥳🥳 2y

DivineDiana What a great husband! It‘s hard to resist that sweet 😻! 2y
Librariana @DivineDiana He's certainly a treasure! 🥰 And I'm tremendously appreciative of the fact that he stood out there with me for as long as he did. Although we did have comfy shoes on, should we do this again in the future, we are definitely coming prepared with chairs! 😁😊 2y
CBee This is amazing 😻 we used to have a Hello Kitty store at the mall, in the bustling capitol city of Jackson, MS 😂😂 But I remember LOVING that store so dang much! 2y

Appointment is set with oncology vet for Aug 16 for imaging and staging. I feel a little bit better going out of town Saturday knowing I have everything set up that I can do at this point. #HelloKitty feels fine, which almost makes all of this harder! #catsoflitsy

I‘m loving the tagged book, haven‘t read historical fiction in a while, and I am finally getting back to my #pop22 prompts.

Teresereading I enjoyed Night Tiger 2y
MallenNC I just read about your Kitty. I‘m sorry you‘re having to deal with this. 2y
AmyG I hope all works out well for your beautiful cat. 😘 2y
Addison_Reads Keeping you and your beautiful kitty in my thoughts. 💞 2y

Bad news on the #HelloKitty front. Pathology showed she has FISS (feline injection site sarcoma). It‘s rare, aggressive, and difficult to treat. We don‘t have a whole lot of options, the main one under consideration is amputation and radiation. We won‘t make any decisions until more scans are done.

It‘s a really hard year. #catsoflitsy

Tagged my current book since reading is helping me deal with things.

squirrelbrain Oh no, sorry to hear this. 😞 2y
Gissy So sorry!😔 2y
Catsandbooks Oh no! So sorry! Hopefully you can find a treatment to help! 2y

alisiakae @Addison_Reads you had a cat with FISS, or having to go through an amputation? I‘d love to talk with you about your experience if you‘re open to that. 2y
Addison_Reads @4thhouseontheleft She was a ten yr old cat. About a month after her yearly shots I noticed something wasn't right. We took her back to the vet were they ran tests and diagnosed her with FISS. They said there wasn't much they could do because of were it was located and how fast it was growing. We didn't want her to suffer, so we gave her one last day full of love and said goodbye. I had never heard of FISS before, or since, until I saw your post. 2y
Addison_Reads @4thhouseontheleft Her tumor started on the back of her neck and it had grown so fast it was causing neurological issues so surgery wasn't an option for us. It sounds like the site of your kitty's tumor though offers you more options and I truly hope the vet can find a solution for you. 💚 2y
Addison_Reads @4thhouseontheleft if it's easier communication for you, my email is caddison97@gmail.com 2y
alisiakae @Addison_Reads aw, I'm so sorry. HK also had a mole that became a mast cell tumor on the back of her neck, luckily that is seemingly unrelated an was fully excised at the same time as the other mass and is all good now. 2y
Chelsea.Poole I‘m so sorry. 2y

Unfortunately, I thought the 2nd book in the Tita Rosie‘s Kitchen series was a bit lackluster. I did like that the author delved into mental health and PTSD, but the writing felt stilted and the story moved pretty slowly. I‘ll still give the 3rd book a try because I love the characters!

#HelloKitty hasn‘t left my side this week. She misses #Isabel too. #catsofLitsy😿🫶🏼

Bookzombie I‘m so sorry about Isabel. 💕 2y
