Darby Garrett Powers (12/24/2011 to 03/07/2018)

Grand Premier (GP) CJPaws Darby of DDDreams #1778-1747061 "Darby" came to us on 18 November 2012 at nearly 11 months of age and retired from the cat show circuit. He was born 24 December 2011 and currently weighs in at 16 pounds. Darby was sired by GC, RW CJPaws "Kasper" of Aslanspaw Maine Coon Cattery (www.aslanspaw.com) in Maryland. His Dam was GC Thecathut "Caliente Agua" of CJPAWS Maine Coon Cattery in Central Florida (www.cjpaws.com.) He has a beautiful female litter mate named GC CJPaws Ivy Patch of Aslanspaw, and two red brothers named GC RW CJPaws Tuscan Sun of Aslanspaw and GC CJPAWS Bono of Hopecats.

The Celtic meaning of the name, "Darby", roughly translates to "Free Born."

On 5 March 2014 Darby was diagnosed with extradural T1-2 lymphoma and was estimated to have 6 months left to live. He's undergoing chemotherapy and we pray a lot. He is tolerating the chemo treatments very well, so far. His oncologist calls him our "wonder kitty." Someone who didn't know he was fighting cancer would not guess he was sick. Usually right after treatment, he would become less active. During the weeks between treatments his activity level would increase to near normal. With dosage adjustments his activity has been much less affected.

In March 2017, Darby's gait appeared to be getting a bit "off". At this point we didn't know what could be causing it: the cancer could have been building up again or starting in another area, his hip dysplasia could have been worsening, his arthritis could have been flaring up, or some new malady could have been present. His vet adjusted his chemo regimen and he did better for another year.

Darby died on 07 March 2018. His lymphoma had spread suddenly and rapidly involving his digestive tract, kidneys, right lung and heart.
