Caturday Art with a Lady Shasta update

I was going to ask Lady Shasta if 
she wanted to do this week's installment of the 
Caturday Art Blog Hop but as you can tell she is still
recovering from her surgery to remove a mass 
from her tummy and was not at all interested. 
So using a couple of pictures I took of her recovery, 
I went ahead a did this week's entry.
This is a picture I took last nite of her sleeping it off.
Lunapic has become my fav free photo editting website-
both of these pics were done using Lunapic.
This first one was done using the Fairy Effect.
This morning she was a bit more alert and hungry.
However when I used the Color Pen Art, it really highlighted
how her eyes showed that she was still feeling some of 
effects of her ordeal.
Getting a little bit later start on this post then I had hoped but
still wanted to do something, sometime for the 
Caturday Art Blog Hop hosted by 
Athena Cat Goddess

The best laid plans ....(Mom Kim)

I keep telling myself that when things finally fall into a routine then I will do more blog hops.

This Friday, 9/14, Lady Shasta is scheduled to
have a lump removed from her tummy-

For several months it was just there - no changes. 
I was doing a watch & wait since she was eating really good & 
her behavior didn't change.
In the past few days the lump has changed - bigger but
nothing else about her has changed.
There is a small part of me that 
wants to send it off for pathology however
it won't change my treatment plans for her even tho
her vet is pretty sure it is a Mast Cell Tumor.
Lady Shasta will be 12 years old in less than a month and
I'm just going to bring her home to enjoy her life 
the only way she has known for years.
I have very vivid bad memories of forcing meds down
Angel Shiloh after he stopped eating most everything I tried-
I didn't know a dog that was so sick and so thin could 
struggle so hard.
I won't do that to Lady Shasta - she doesn't deserve that.

Please send prayers and POTP for my Lady.

#ChewyInfluencer Team & enjoy getting a surprise from them each month.
Their second surprise for the month of August was a 
2-lb. bag of Sojo's Mix-A-Meal Pre-Mix Fruit & Veggie Grain Free Dog Food

no other form of compensation was involved.

(Note from mom - as sometimes happens, life gets in the way so this review,
which was actually our 2nd review for August, was just completed and 
will be linked up with the September Blog Hop.)

#Caturday Art

Ok - know it is late but wanted to get this post linked up to the #Caturday Art Blog Hop hosted by
Athena Cat Godess.
This week all art was done in Lunapic.
The first one I used Fairy Art to 
get this finished picture.  I like this because it is more
like her real colors than Picasso.
This is the Picasso Art.
Another picture with the Fairy Art then 
I put a Picture Frame on it - 
those eyes of Miss Maizie are definitely drawing me in.
