The Guardians Need Us Right Now

Disciples of The Leader Otis,

Brother Henry here.

Ummm… there’s no easy way to say this… one of the Guardians is sick. Sir Thomas, Brother Oliver and I have known something was wrong for a few weeks now as the Guardians have seemed very stressed. In recent days Brother Oliver has been sticking close to them and he discovered that the smaller Guardian has been diagnosed with breast cancer, and that she is having surgery for it on Wednesday, July 15. We are all very worried.

Henry worried

The smaller Guardian is having breast cancer surgery on July 15. We are all worried.

Brother Oliver also discovered that the Guardians have created a new website about the smaller Guardian’s illness called Welcome to Cancer. It will include updates on her progress as she goes through her treatment. I was getting impatient with the Guardians recently because they were hogging the computer when Thomas, Brother O, and I wanted to write new blog posts. Now that I see what they were doing I feel a little guilty for that impatience.

We aren’t sure how much we will be updating the Blog of Otis in the coming weeks. We will probably be needed to snuggle and comfort the Guardian as she recovers from her surgery and whatever treatment will follow. We will return as soon as we are able though and, for those of you on Facebook, Thomas will do his best to continue the Flashback Friday posts.

Even in our absence we hope that you will continue to do all that you can to help make this a world in which every cat is happy, healthy, and safely confined.

So says Brother Henry

  1. I’m so very sorry that this has happened. Thank you for tackling the hard task of conveying the news, Brother Henry. You’re right, you kitties will be needed to snuggle and comfort the smaller Guardian, and the bigger Guardian will need your strength and support too, so please don’t worry about the blog. I’m sure that all the Disciples whom you and Otis have taught so well will be purring daily for the best possible outcome. With sympathy and love and good vibrations, Rhiannon

  2. Many will purr prayers for your guardian and all of you. You are not alone in these uncertain times. Many cuddles and soft pats for the Disciples, too.

    We will be sending good energy and purrs to the Smaller Guardian during her battle with cancer. We will also keep the Bigger Guardian and the feline family in our thoughts, knowing you will all need strength to support and comfort the Smaller Guardian during her battle.

    Sending healing energy to your guardian and I will keep her in my thoughts.

    It’s natural that you were feeling impatient. After all you do have important work to do. Now that you know that the smaller guardian will undergo surgery, try not to feel guilty. Instead use that energy to help her heal! She will need you boys oh, so much. The bigger guardian will also need extra care so you will be quite busy. We will be sending lots of purrs and prayers to all of you, especially the smaller guardian for successful surgery with all the best possible outcomes. Thanks for letting us know, that’s not easy news to share.

  13. We will send our most healingest purrs…and Mommy will add the Smaller Guardian to her “list”. Hugs and kitty kisses.

    You might be surprised to learn that scientific research has proven that pets help people heal. (Of course, the surprise is that scientists had to research something so obvious.) So you boys will be actual medicine for your dear Guardian, just by being your funny, fuzzy selves! I will also ask the Guardian Of All Guardians to send very special love and healing, too.

  15. Our purrs are cranked higher than high sending healing to the small Guardian

  16. Sending positive thoughts and prayers across the miles. Cancer sucks. Kitty boys, be good and supportive!

  17. Cancer sucks! The treatments suck, the fear sucks, never seeing the world again in quite the same way sucks. But love and purrs go a long way to send all that suckitude on it’s way. May you be well in spirit and body.

  18. Sending you thoughts and purrs for strength and healing!

  19. Claudine Erlandson

    I am so very sorry . Sending love and best wishes to all of you and especially Julie. I also think that Kitties are the best medicine 🐱🐱🐱

  20. We are praying very hard for your guardian. We hope that everything will go perfectly for her surgery and afterward. Keep close kitties, she will need your purrs.

  21. Susan Bollinger

    We’re adding you to our prayer list. Like everyone else we hope all will be well and the treatment will not be too difficult.


  22. This news made my eyes very leaky. Please give the Guardians extra head bumps from us. We consider you our Seattle family and we will do what we can to help you out. Thanks for sharing the website!

  23. Many rumbly purrs of healing and comfort

  24. Gabriel and his mom
