In honor of Valentines Day, I Have Cat, created this post about kitty love...I wanted to share with everyone since she featured Jack and Jill.  Also I thought it would be fun to start this thread and everyone share pics of their babies snuggling with each other (or with you!)

Jill is a 9-year-old tuxedo kitty. She was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in June 2012 on her toe in her right hind leg. Her leg was amputated on 12/12/12 and she completed four rounds of chemo (2 of Carbo, 2 of Doxy) in April 2013. "Like" Jill's facebook page: https://www.fac.....tty?ref=hl Proud member of the WINTER WARRIORS!!!! Her blog can be read at xoxo

Valentines Day is very special at my house this year! Polly's "little sister" and blessing in disguise, Pearl, will be 1 year old on February 14.... We were already on the waiting list to get her as a puppy, when Polly was diagnosed with her cancer. Polly was really missing my Lab Maggie, that we lost to cancer, about a year and a half before this cancer ordeal started with Polly. Instead of being too much to handle, she gave Polly a new outlook on life and they both bonded almost immediately. They are almost inseparable, it is very sweet!! The bottom pic is one of my most favorites of them, to date. This was taken the night before Polly's latest surgery, almost 2 weeks ago. Pearl has taken it upon herself to protect and try to keep Polly safe....this pic is priceless....!! Just love both my girls so much !!!

Shelby Lynne; Jack Russell/Shiba Inu mix. Proud member of the April Angels of 2014.

October 15, 2000 to April 8, 2014

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
