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

4thhouseontheleft @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. 9h
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. 💚 8h
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! 7h
4thhouseontheleft @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. 3h

⭐️⭐️⭐️This was a weird one because when I was reading it, I liked it, but I was never excited to pick it back up.I also felt a strange detachment from the story – like I was only getting 75% of the info about Patrick and his relationships with the other characters in the story. I‘m not sure if that was intentional to show how disconnected he had become? But for something that I felt should have been such an emotional story, I was rarely moved.

The Flatshare is still my favourite of O'Leary's books, but this was good. I'm always interested to see what O'Leary writes next. I think I was just in the mood for more of a romcom right now, which isn't the book's fault at all.

Think this Book could be a real help to people in their grief. Knowing that all feelings are ok and there is no time limit to the grief. For professionals working in bereavement would definitely add this to your reading library 📚

I read the Mavis Gallant book of Montreal Stories while in Montreal years ago- I bought it there. We were staying in the city for a wonderful week, right near McGill. Notes on Grief I read when published. I recommend both books.

I started out liking this book then, as the reader slowly realizes that what they thought was happening isn't really what's happening, I loved it. #Alphabetgame @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks
