A Radiant Band of Light-Miracle gets spayed Thursday, I'm- doing well, and Legends

April 1st 2014 5:46 am

Good morning Furrs!

I am looking out at a lovely sunny day after so many days of cold and rain. This morning I rubbed mommys leg and she lifted me and kissed me and then put down some lovely cat food.

It has been two weeks since Miracle has taken up residence on the bedroom, and if all goes well, she will be spayed on Thursday and then, and then....

we will be allowed back into the bedroom on Saturday! Mommy says slowly at first, so not to upset her, but Miracle has been 'in heat' and this has caused mommy to be so tired, as Miracle wants to mate, and of course none of us know what to do about that.

We'll be glad when life gets back to normal.

I myself am doing well. I love it when warm weather retruns, and my appetite comes with it, one day last week it was rainy and cold, and I slept deeply the whole day, didn't wake to eat til 6pm....but then I ate well. Mommy was worried about me, but it just turned out that I wasn't wanting to get out of bed on such a dark and gloomy day.

This past week, a legend went to the bridge....a lovely little tortie, who has always been so kind to us-Miss Jezabel. We will miss her alot, but we know that her life is an amazing story, and her family are truly wonderful and amazing people. We send them much, much love.

And...we welcome, truly, a wonderful new little cat to Miss Kaci Sunshine's home. Little Miss April Moonlite has come home to mom Teri, and for this, we are so glad. We know she is very loved and wanted there, and she has big pawprints to fill, but we know that she is already doing so, and a more loved cat we can't imagine.

Thank all you folks, who have opened your homes to new furrs....and trust that Miracles Do Occur!!!

 

Our New SISTER! HAPPY SAINT PATTY'S DAY ALL!!!

Dear Folks and Furrs-
Trust That Miracles Do Occur!

May I introduce to you our newest little sister-Miss Miracle CNN!
As mommy posts pictures of her, you will notice something-some of the decorations on her fur are very similar to mine! :)

Miracle was on 'Death Row'. She was about to be anyway. Mommy pulled her just before she 'made the list'. She came to us March 9th, and I have yet to meet her because she has a cold, and Mommy said-'Ruffy, the last thing you need is a kitty cold!'

So Midnight has snuck in and seen her, and so has CK. It's put his little nose right out of joint!

Mommy was very worried about her, she hadn't eaten in 2 days, but she is eating now, whew. Mommy had to syringe feed her, but last nigth she finally wanted something to eat. Mommy made sure she got it.

What else can I tell you about her? Well...so far that is it, but we will keep everyone posted!

I want to wish all my friends a Wonderful and Happy Saint Patty's Day!

I'm feeling well today, eating well and enjoying the radiator in the kitchen. Mommy said the bedroom is chilly, and she'll be getting a microwavable heating pad for Miracle later.

Love to all-begorra me cushlas-

love and light
Ruffy

 

Update on me for March 6th, 2013 and a new announcement..

March 6th 2014 4:28 am
[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ]

Dear all,
This week has been mostly good for me. Mommy believes I have something 'stomach or liver related as our other vet said-I was well all this week and then daddy gave me the piece of chicken from a rotissire chicken, and I was ill again the next day. Mommy gave me some pepcid, which I spit out, and she found it later, so I got a little piece of cerenia and an appetite booster. Today I'm feeling well. There is still a plan to do the liver biopsy, which will be a 'small procedure'. Mommy feels my issues are something else, though-and she told daddy that she feels the vets aren't seeing or hearing whatever is making my breathing so hoarse, and wonders if I do have something with that....but in any case, as the mystery with me goes on, I go on, and just now I'm waiting for my steamed chicken to cook-mommy has found we all like a bit in the morning, steamed with a bit of broth, so it's cooking now. Mommy told me 'Ruffy, take advantage of it now, because when I go back to work, you'll be having it from the night before warmed.' But if I have it, well, that is a good thing.

Now...my announcement...and it is very exciting!...But I will only be making part of it...

Do you know-and you do...my saying 'Trust that Miracles Do Occur?'

And 'Be the Change?'

Well, we are about to do just that. A Miracle is about to occur...do you want to know what it is?

Well, then you must go to Natalie's diary....

love and light...and yes, Miracles.

Hello all,
This past Saturday I returned to my old vet and had blood and urine taken from me. They ran a pancreas panel, and are testing something in my pee. I don't know why they wanted it, but they did.
It was upleasant, and i had to go on the way home, and peed in the carrier. Daddy gave me a bath.
On the plus side, I have been having chicken daily, whenever I want just about. Mommy got a whole bunch of chicken breasts on sale without the skin or bones-and she has been steaming them for me-well, we all get some, which make the others happy! I couldn't believe in my wildest dreams that I could have chicken whenever I want.
Mommy is worried about me, and she and Daddy just want to know what the issue is. Mommy thinks that I might have pancreatitis, or that it could be my liver issues. She's somewhat frustrated that no vet seems able to figure out what's going on, but she told the vet that since I had a sonogram already, she thinks that running another one that costs so much money is something they should do only if it's really felt that it will show something-Mommy had asked a third vet who has alot of experience about the company that was used for the sonogram is good. Little Vet feels they miss things, but this other vet stated he had used them for 10 years, and they hadn't missed anything he knew about. Daddy is leaning towards getting it done anyway, he feels that he wants to know, and thinks that whatever they can find out is a good thing, but Mommy feels that the sonograms never showed anything conclusive in Bella or Natalie, and is waiting to see what is going on.
I don't have the appetite I once had, though I love chicken and with the pepcid in my tummy do seem to feel better. I can't eat the thing I once did, the days of having a cast iron tummy are over-ah, saying goodbye to not having fried chicken and fish.....sigh.
But there are worse things, I guess, and when Daddy dropped a piece of fried chicken-the inside part-on the floor by accident and I scooped it up and ate it, I threw up awhile later. Mom says we're going to probably be joining the IBD.net website, as she thinks Auntie Lisa, who runs the site is 'brilliant'.
Today is a chilly, grey day here in NY, and I'm on Mommy's comforter on the bed. Yesterday was warmer, and I miss the sun-yesterday I was on the little table mommy put next to the window with a comforter on it, and I napped there most of the day. Today I'm just too chilly, I want to be where I can be warm.
Ah, well, it's naptime....purrs to every fur and good thoughts to all your folks!
love and light,
Ruffy

Trust that Miracles Do Occur...

The power of that has always lain with the Powers of the Universe...
The key is we are part of that Universe.
We love Catster-we love the Community.
This week we made a slideshow video. It belongs to all of us.
It was meant to be an appeal to keep Catster's Community Forum here.
It has become a portrait, in moments, of what you all mean to us.
We share it with you.

I would also like to thank Watch Cat and all the 'Staff' who work so hard, as well as the Administrators of groups who work tirelessly to help us all to feel warm and wanted for various honors.

This belongs to all of you....You Tube link:

TRUST THAT MIRACLES OCCUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

February 12th 2014 4:49 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

We got the news last month
It could hardly be so
Losing a piece of us
Even those at Rainbow
For Catster, our home,
Where we met all our friends
Were taking away the Community
It was the end
But haven't I said it, in a world filled with purrs
Yep so again-TRUST THAT MIRACLES OCCUR'

Auntie Laura, Dana, Julie-Mazies Mom
Their angels got together and said
'This is all wrong-we need our folks to stay with their furs
We can't be gotten rid of-no-
'Trust that Miracles Occur!'

So they went to work-
They lit up the night
They purred it Real
They created a light
And tossed it high-energy made of fur
that drifted to San Fran
TRUST THAT MIRACLES OCCUR

Feathers drifted here, they drifted there
They swirled in the snowfall
They were everywhere
Feathers to tickle, filled with magickal lure
For it's written down somewhere
TRUST THAT MIRACLES OCCUR

And a Miracle Happened, in the midst of all
Our folks found each other, they answered the call
They banded together, the folks behind Furs
Working to save Magick
TRUST THAT MIRACLES OCCUR

They learned a lesson, they found shoulders and friends
They shared beginnings, and they shared sad ends
They gazed into candles, they prayed on their knees
Sending out energy, sending out pleas
They reached up to those angels with rumbling soft purrs
Who answered with action
TRUST THAT MIRACLES OCCUR

And so I sit here, on my couch back
Cheshire cats smile-me, I just snack
But I sit up and reach up, and say
Thank you Folks and Furs
I never doubted-
TRUST THAT MIRACLES OCCUR


From Orange Ruffy, Warrior Poet of Catster

THANK YOU!!!! THANK YOU SAY MEDIA!!!!
WE LOVE YOU!!!!
THANK YOU FOR SAVING OUR COMMUNITY!!!!

 

About me, and update on things-a second opinion reveals not- much

February 6th 2014 5:47 am
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ]

Hi All,
Well, wanted to update you on my 'second opinion'. Basically, mom and dad don't have any more knowledge and mom isn't satisfied. Little Vet-who had been Natalie's Vet, and my vet before we 'switched over' needed the bloodwork, which she just got yesterday.

She told Mom and Dad that she really recommends a 'do over' on my ultrasounds as she doesn't much like the company that was used for my last one. Mom and Dad will probably get me a heart sonogram-I have not had one, but since mom and dad are a little 'strapped' with just dad working-and mind you, he has a good job-mom and dad don't know that they'll repeat the abdominal ultrasound.

Little vet said it could be my heart, but she didn't have any indication, as there was no 'official' diagnosis' and the results of the ultrasound from the other vet were 'liver cysts'. Little vet doesn't think that would play into my lack of appetite and nausea some days.

Yesterday was a wonderful day for me-mom said it was like I was back to me. No appetite booster, no-I felt well, ate well, rested well, and even ran around and played. Mom was making duck stock, so gave me a couple pieces of duck and that made me happy....however....

this morning, I was very unwell. I threw up twice and I peed next to the desk. Mom said she saw me go in the box again, and when she checked me, she saw I had dried poop on my backside. She thought I was constipated, but I may have had diarrhea, which is a new one for me. She had given me a little miralax thinking I might be constipated, and now she feels badly. She told daddy I'll get a little fluids tonight, just a bit, in case I'm dehydrated.

Mom called her friend who's a vet tech who's been practising for a long time. (she cant' get it right-she has to keep practising?) and mom's friend suggested the duck was too rich-but agreed this 'every few days' thing is not normal and she thinks there's a digestive or something else going on as well-she said 'the duck disagreeing-possible stomach issues-which may be from a more sensitive digestive system. I got pepcid and this morning an appetite booster, that mom calls the 'meow pill' because it makes me start meowing alot and being constantly at mom-wanting her to come with me to the kitchen to eat or to sit on the bed and pet me. I hate it when she's on the computer....

So that is where we are....

Now, we'll update again, but as we are 'losing' our virutal community here, we wanted to update you on where we will be after March 3rd....you can come to Facebook and Mom is on under 'Debra Knowles'. Mom and I and Natalie will also be on 'Cathugger'.

I'll talk more about this later.....we are very sad to be losing Catster, and mom isn't doing so well about this-but we aren't giving up or giving in. I have always believed in transition, Furs, and we cats know that we are forever the most adaptable creatures....so we will adapt. But losing everyone...we don't want this to be an option. Mom wishes she had the money to buy Catster-the community and run it for everyone. Has anyone asked Say Media if they would sell it to all of us?

In the meanwhile, mom and we can be reached at darkfyre4@aol.com as well-just put 'catster' in the subject line. There is a growing community of 'catster friends' on FB and at Cathugger.

I am working on a book with mom-one that features many of my diaries, my poems and stories....the last one will be written soon...

but no matter where we go-we take you all with us. We love you all-very much.

love and light,
Ruffy

 

Update on me

January 16th 2014 7:43 am

Hi Furs and Folks,
Wanted to stop by and give up an update on me.
Mom and Dad have been concerned because my appetite is not what it was, and I've lost a pound. The vet listened to my heartbeat, and found that it wasn't as bad as last time, and took me off the cardiac medicine. He thought it might be effecting me negatively, as I had no appetite in the morning and threw up alot.
However, my appetite is still not great-I'm eating, mom has been getting me chicken, and raw beef ( I like it ground up, and the italian butcher she goes to does this for me!) and pretty much whatever I want. I'm still not ravenous, though I am now getting an appetite booster whenever I need it for my appetite.
No one is sure why. Mom had a 'senior panel' including thyroid done on me. My liver enzymes-one is a little better, one is the same, one is slightly worse. I'm to get Marin, which mom has to start me on later, and pepcid in the morning as needed. I have to have poop donated to the vet when she sees me go, because thats the only thing not checked. My thyroid, which mom thought might be off, was not. But the vet did feel my thyroid was swollen, so there is still that mystery!
It I had always been fussy, it wouldn't be such a concern, but I've always had a great appetite and would eat whenever I could.
I still want people food-especially chicken and last night-corned beef! I get some chicken, but mom and dad watch it with other foods....

Other than that, I'm about the same-mom is worried and dad is too...

I don't appear to be in pain, or uncomfortable, and have even been sleeping on the bed with them with the other cats the past couple nights. Without Natalie here threatening everyone, and everyone being put out in the front room, we're finding a new groove.

I know mom and dad are still sad, and I know my health issues aren't helping.

However, I do appear very comfortble and still love my Couch back.

Hope all is well with everyone else...

love, Ruffy

 

Happy New Year-love and light from Ruffy and the Ridgewood- Clowder...

From Orange Ruffy, Warrior Poet of Catster....

Dear Folks and Furs,
As the minutes tick down to the last of an old year, we cats take a step forward into the circle of light cast by the moon high above. We glance back into the shadows, but for a moment, and we feel warm in our hearts for every Miracle born of need. We leave behind the sadness of loss, we , as cats, in the now of meow, pacing through time....
We purr for our people, celebrating their triumphs, comforting their tears. We comfort them with the Knowledge that we hold deep within, and impart it to them with a soft gaze, and those who sit with us Know, sense that there is something beyond.....
leaping from the inbetween humans can't see, She comes. We touch noses and we leap high and frisk, dancing the timeless dance of all cats, celebrating with pure joy life and that it is endless, as those around her just out of focus join in, chasing each other and dancing, their wings neatly folded, all but invisible in this dimension. And for a few moments they and I forget the circle and chase each other through the sparkling night, and I am running and gliding through this place that is known to all cats, they have only to remember when the time is right...
And as a watch, a rainbow spreads across the dark night, and tiny stars in the heavens illuminate it, this shining colorful Bridge Across Forever. And I meet her as she comes to me again, purring and rubbing her cheek against mine. The others are crossing, as they do tossing from the surface of this light, tiny crystals of color that float out and away, to find those soul bound to them....a gift of love, of courage, of strength and hope. And She and I gaze into the darkness, and then, she leaps skyward, spreading before her sparks of light and warmth, and in her wake, Antares, the brightest star in the Winter sky shines with renewed glow....
Happy New Year My Friends, may the year ahead dance with you in joy, and lighten your cares. May she bring you blessing and prosperity, love and light. May Furs find the way to your door and into heart. May your pockets be full and your Souls fuller. May all the Goodness of Cat stand nose to nose with you and tickle you with her whiskers. May you know yourself the Heroes you are.

love, light and blessings,
Orange Ruffy
