My admiration of Susan Butcher and her accomplishments is huge. I'm praying that a bone marrow donor match is found soon for Susan.

I named my cat "Butcher" after Susan. Butcher-the-cat was obviously strongest of the litter. It was soon obvious that Butcher-the-cat was hell bent on exploring her world fearlessly. She was the only cat I've ever known that insisted on climbing down a tree head first. It wasn't easy, but she just refused to back down!! haha Since gravity doesn't cooperate too well with the head-first method, Butcher-the-cat resorted to dashing down the tree head first before gravity could swing her 'round....or so it appeared. She was a very strong cat.

We love you, Susan! Get well soon.
