I can't believe it's already been a year since Snow died. I miss him and still can't believe he's gone. I miss you Snow. You were my buddy and were always by my side. Things just aren't the same without you. Hoping you're enjoying your time at the bridge and that we'll be together again some day. Love you Snow! Until we meet again...

 

Crossed the bridge today 4 Feb 2012

Snow crossed the bridge this morning. He's lost a lot of weight this last year. Still ate like a horse though. He always slept on the bed with me and he purred when he slept. The last few days he distanced himself from me so I'm not sure when he stopped eating. Then yesterday around 1am, I got up to go to the bathroom. Before I turned the light out, Snow walked around to the other side of the bed and squeezed himself in between the wall and the night stand and laid out under the night stand. I knew right then that his time was near. Had I not seen him go under there, I might not have found his body for awhile which really un-nerved me.

I put Snow in my bathroom so I knew where he was. He drank some water from time to time but he had no interest in food. He was extremely restless too. He'd lay down for awhile and then he'd get up and go lay somewhere else. I held him in my lap this morning for a little bit and talked to him and loved on him. He knows he was loved. I had a bunch of errands to run this morning but when I came home around noon, he had already crossed the bridge. I know he didn't like me fussing over him and he waited until I was gone before he crossed. I know he didn't want me crying all over him. With his trying to hide, I knew he wanted to go in peace. I just hope his passing was quick.

He knew he finally had a home to call his own and he was loved. I know he loved me too. I will always remember his little raspy meow that day I saw him at Petsmart, almost 3 years ago. My life is definitely better for having him share the rest of his life with me. Things just won't be the same without him. I miss his purr and I miss his face rubs against mine. His eyes were like no others I'd ever seen before...He'd look at me and I swear he knew exactly what I was saying to him.

Snow was my buddy and will always have a special place in my heart. Adopting him was the best thing I could have done. He showed me that senior cats are grateful and he showed me all the time. I just wish I had more time with him. He was my Snow Buddy and will be deeply missed. I love you Snow! Rest in peace, my buddy, and I'll see you at the bridge some day. Love and kisses always!

 

Need some suggestions

Mom took me to the vet yesterday because I've been lethargic and I have blood in my stools. I don't travel well and my nerves got the best of me and I left every kind of sample you can imagine in mom's car...both on the way to the vet and on the way home. Oops.

The vet did a fecal exam and didn't find anything and they did an x-ray and all they could see was the massive amounts of food still in my body. So, they think I'm constipated...which mom know's I'm not. My stools are rather soft and regular. But, she was told to give me some laxatone every day for a week.

The big problem is mom was told she has to keep my separated from the rest so mom can keep an eye on my bowel movements. The only place she can put me is in the guest bathroom. I go balistic when I'm confined to small spaces and I start clawing everything trying to get out. So, I'm still roaming free in the house.

The other issue is that I gained almost 4 pounds in 3 months. I went from 12.6 to 16.3. Mom was told I need to go on a diet. How is she gonna do that when there's 19 other cats in the house. The food is out 24/7 cuz mom would be attacked and eaten otherwise.

So, there's those 2 major problems and we need some advice. Can anyone offer any suggestions?

 

Vet Visit

Mom took me to the vet the other day for my initial checkup. I weighed in at 12.6 pounds cuz I'm a big boy! Mom knew something was up with my ears cuz every time she'd rub or scratch my ears, I had to either shake my head or scratch my ears. Sure enough, I have an ear infection so mom has to put drops in my ears every day for 2 weeks. I'm not especially liking that but what's even worse is that she has to put this gel stuff in my eyes too and I really give her a hard time when she goes to do that. But other than that, I'm healthy and happy.

Mom went to Petsmart today and got me a pretty bright blue color and a name tag and of course I'm not fond of anything around my neck but I'm getting used to it. She also got us a new kitty bed and a bunch of new toys to play with. I think I'm liking this new home I've found for myself. I think I picked a good one this time.

 

Definitely not acting my age!

I found this orange mousie today that just absolutely drives me crazy. Mom says it has catnip in it but I have no idea what that is. All I know is that I've been throwing this thing around all day and chasing it wherever it lands. It's amazing! I'm wore out!!! The other furbutts just lay there and watch me...I bet they think I lost it or something. Mom says that I'm definitely not acting my age and is surprised to see me playing like I'm a young thing or something. I'm full of surprises that no one knew I was capable of cuz no one gave me a chance until mom came along. She saw my potential and I really am grateful to be given a second chance at life. I may be the oldest one in this house but I'm still a kid at heart!

 

My New Life Started Yesterday

Am I a lucky kitty or what? There's no telling what kind of life I had up til this point but I definitely don't miss it or at least I'm not letting on that I do. We know I'm old and Animal Control picked me up back in May. But I am the most loveable kitty you could ever ask for. I'm not agressive until another furbutt sticks his face up in my face and then I bat at them to leave me alone. I tolerate the other furbutts wanting to sniff my butt but all I really want is to be by the human that gave me a second chance. I slept with her last night and purred in her ear. I give her kitty kisses and headbonks to let her know I appreciate what she did for me. We just took a nap a little while ago and I was right there by her side. I am the perfect kitty and I'm glad someone saw me and recognized my potential. I may be old, but I'm not dead yet!!!
