convincing me he needs to go for a walk when he just went

Arrival Story:
it was a cloudy, drizzly day...he was hiding under the porch with his last remaining sibling (all the others had already been adopted)...and we fell in love immediately

Bio:
he picked his own name! Jelly is from Baltimore, sailed the intra-coastal waterway to the Keys, relocated to Miami, then Tallahassee, now we're in Atlanta! He loves being back in the city -- all the attention -- all the smells! Below is his foster girlfriend Bailey, who now lives with a lovely family in Charlotte. They look like cousins! Below her is Madison, his most recent foster-girlfriend who now happily lives with a family in Atlanta. In August, 2005, Jelly was diagnosed with bladder cancer. We immediately started him on a prescription (piroxicam) as well as a variety of herbs and vitamins (as suggested on the UF veterinary website). In December 2005, his tumor had shrunk! and we think his cancer battle is over!! January 2006: Jelly has been limping for about a week, which he has done before. We took him to the vet for an xray and he agreed it might be a sprain (with some very remote reservations). Mid-Jan, 2006: well, it's not a sprain, but bone cancer...ugh. Completely unrelated to the bladder cancer. And, not a good prognosis. Jelly passed away February 20, 2006. Rest in peace my sweet. You are dearly missed.

I love belly rubs! (and mommy)
