Where is Laura of Life in 120 Square Feet?

Hello 120 Square Feet readers.

I wanted to pop in and let you all know that I am alive and plan to get back this blog very soon.

However, just because I live in a tiny house doesn't always mean that life is always sunshine and rainbows. Right after the Raleigh Home Show Matt and I got some news that made us have to stop in our tracks and focus on just one thing. Our precious cat Piglet, a favorite pet of many tiny house aficionados, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of feline cancer.

We may have caught it soon enough and we rushed her to a specialist an hour away from us where they immediately performed surgery to remove the mass and other affected tissue. She is safely at the vet the remainder of this weekend. We will be picking her up on Monday. Once we get her test results back we will know if there are additional treatments or if the surgery might have been a complete cure.

There is a longer involved blog post in this story somewhere, I just don't have the energy right now to tell it. There can certainly be drawbacks to living in a small space but that doesn't entirely discredit the benefits of tiny homes either. While Piglet is in recovery we will be staying at a house in Downtown Asheville. However, our simpler lifestyle and flexible schedules means that we have the ability to do this for a little while.

If you do want to keep up with Piglet's care and story you can follow her Facebook page here. We'll be back soon with more blog posts about tiny living.


  1. sending love for Kitty to be better....

  2. I'm so sorry to hear this! Hard news from the vet is never welcomed. Best hope and wishes for a complete and swift recovery.

  3. Get Well soon Piglet! I am sorry to hear about your illness.

    I had a cat who had cancer, sadly we could not operate and could only keep him as comfortable as possible. I hope the surgery was a success.

  4. So sad to hear about Piggie. Its always so heart-wrenching when our little guys are sick. Here's to hoping the mass is benign and she recovers quickly! :)
