Firstly, Ingen, I hope you are reading this. I declare my love here and now. You are lovely, sweet, and I'm so glad you're home with Jen.
The Cone of Shame is probably going to be a permanent fixture around my neck. This past week mommy and daddy had to bring me back to the vet. Yep, my eye again.
So now...more medicine, the cone is restored around my neck, and every chance it is this brat of a brother is tormenting me. He doesn't leave me alone.
I don't like the cone. The only good thing is that Daddy is the one putting medicine in my eye again. I missed Daddy like the dickens, and I'm glad he is home. He is looking for work every day.
Mommy is home today and wasn't feeling well, but thats a good thing for us becuase she cooked and made us some stuff too...think it could be some chicken.
CK is a brat...but sometimes its fun to have him around. He plays with me, and likes to lay close by me, too. Me and Smokie, we have fun with him...he's more fun than that BUB.
So I have to get medicine 2 times a day. And I have to get checked up again next week. Mommy has been so careful with my medicine and so has Daddy.
Mommy was a bit upset with the vet, though. See, Mommy paid out of her pocket for the last rescue she and daddy bought there. They were told that there wouldn't be a charged...she and Daddy at that time paid for medicine and treatment...mommy paid it in full...or so she thought. When she bought me in she was told she had a balance from the last rescue...she paid it, but she isn't very happy.
Mommy and Daddy aren't working right now with the Rescue. Mommy was upset that they didn't help out with the last cat they bought there...and mommy said that she loves the animals, and is angry because they were left to pay the bill and they couldn't really take on any more.
It's ok for us....because it means we have mommy and daddy to ourselves just now.
Still, it's sad because we know mommy and daddy love the cats there, too.
Ingen, you are in my thoughts! I am so happy that Catster-espeically all the wonderful paawrents who came through for you...

I lay here musing,
Oh what a week
A dad lost and found
What a relief
And then I find out
My sweet 'lil bit
Is missing cross country
I just can't stand it!
Ingeen I'm no tomcat
I'm a regular guy
With a big orange head
And funny scratched eye
But you, my sweet Ingen
You're my soft furred sweet friend
And my heart is beating
Will it never end?
Adventurous by nature,
Maybe not so
Did Jen tell you? Did you want to go?
Did you dream of mountains,
Or microsoft mouse?
You dissapeared in a motel
On your way to your house!
And Catster friends mobilized
As Catster friends do,
The stripped and the calico
Black, Russian blue,
Old furts and youngsters,
Because no one could stand to think of your cries!
And my heart was breaking,
My heart was in two
Because you're my little Ingen
And I know I love you,
So I willed and I chilled and I breathed into the night
With power of the paw to make it be right
And now the words come, ah yes she's been found!
Cowering between boxspring and matteress
Not at the pound!
Ah what a blessing,
Ah my heart's joy
I purr and chase Smokie
and play with my toy!
So Ingen, our cat friends will get you to Jen
Across many miles-you know I trust them.
Ingen, please tell me, when you're all over this...
Could this Pirate Orange Ruffy
Be deserving a kiss?
And now as I climb back to the couch back once more
Anticipating my supper on a plate on the floor
As I sit and I groom and I think as cats do
Of you, Little Ingen for we all love you.

Daddy is back home. He petted me and hugged me and put his head on my back. My back got wet. Daddy was sad.
Daddy is going to have to go to something called 'Gamblers Annoymous'. I don't know what that is, but Mommy tells me it will 'not be easy'.
I told mommy by looking at her that I love Daddy, and that I know it won't be, but I'm going to do my best to purr at him and her and do power of the paw every chance I get.
I'm laying here on the sofa back! I'm so happy Ingen is ok! That little minx! I'm so glad she's ok and I'm really hoping that she is able to be gotten to Jen soon!!!
We love you all and thank you everyone for your kindess and support.
Just now there is a small back and white kitty at my tail. So I better be careful here!

Oh Catster friends!
Something is happening that isn't good! My daddy hasn't been home since Friday. We don't know where he is! I miss him alot. Mommy is scared and upset and very sad. We're purring up a storm for him.
Mommy says that daddy may 'be in trouble' and we're all worried.
Please purr and pray for him and us.
From Ruffy's mom,
I'm sorry to bring this to my Catster friends, but I wanted to explain why we haven't been around. My husband is missing. He dissapeared on Friday. It appears he wasn't paying bills and didn't tell me. I went home on Friday night to not having cable and we've since found out that he was on a 'payment plan'. He got home before me in the afternoons so I never knew.
I found out we were 3 months behind in the rent. My sisters kindly paid it for me, and put a new lock on my door as they are worried. I'm scared. My sisters did help me buy groceries including cat food. That said I only have internet access at work just now, where I am just now.
Please, everyone, pray and purr. I am so upset. Ruffy doesn't understand. He's eating ok, but he doesn't know where his dad is, nor does Natalie.
I'm so worried. And angry, and so hurt.
Sorry, I just wanted everyone to know why we haven't been around.

You know who you are. We don't know each other, I'm guessing. But we have something very much in common. Or shall I say Someone?
I want to let you know that my Sunshine Girl is just that. She is small and funny, well spoken, neat and charming. She makes me purr, she makes me feel silly and goofy and sorta well, happy inside.
So, er, like what's doin', dude? Like my girl....MY GIRL....is My Girl.
Er...don't think I like all of a sudden you blowing in here with an ENGAGEMENT RING and telling my little Sunshine Girl that she's supposed to be faithful to you...
I mean, dude, dude, like what is that about dude?
I'm beginning to talk like Smokie, I gotta stop that.
Listen dude, don't steal my Sunshine.
She's very loved here.
A BIG ORANGE MARMALADE TABBY MALE CAT!

Perhaps justice is just tears that turn from anger in your heart, to the urge to change things in your soul.
Perhaps it's using that pain, that anger, to spiral outward and turn to rainbow colors and light up the world.
Perhaps at the end of it there is not an end of sorrow, but the beginnings of a thread of joy, as love and life matter over all.
Perhaps it is knowing that being strong doesn't make you happy, but does make you full inside with knowing that you did all you could.
Perhaps sorrow and grief don't leave...but are transformed into something else that with mecurial precision begin to swirl and crackle with energy that shoots outward and sparkles with a hundred rays of sunlight and gentle starlight, and one grows wings that are both colorful and strong, allowing you to fly up and touch the Sacred.
Perhaps at the End of it All, we regard the Messenger who so transformed us, and with a purr or a smile in the case of human kind, blink or blow a kiss heavenward and say 'yes, for here is love, now and always, and love can't die but simply be transformed.
And at the end of it all, I salute you with the Power of the Paw.
For you, small furry kit, and you, strong and wonderous human,
Have made the world, in the end of it all, sparkle with wonder and justice, and made a corner of it good.
Dedicated to Angel Silvio and his Mommy

Daddy took my hood off for awihle last night and this morning!
I was sitting on my little tower by the window and that bratty little punk cat came and wanted to sit there. He went to swat me but this time I didn't have my hood on. I swatted back, he swatted, I swatted. He swatted, I swatted. And then he started to lose ground and slide backward! And then, and then....and then...RIGHT OFF THE SIDE!!!
Watch it CK!

He's home-I'm so glad. I missed him. Mommy came home and took care of us and fed us and loved on us then went to work for a couple hours before her Supervisor and co worker took her back to the hospital. they released Daddy at 2:30pm. He had chest pain and trouble breathing.
They think daddy's 'hiatal hernia' might be the problem, gave him a medicine called 'nexium' and told him that he needs to follow up with his doctor.
He still might have to have an angiogram, he has to follow up with the cardilogist. But so far his heart stuff has checked out well. We know he has a good heart, I could have told them that. So despite my cone of shame, I'm sitting close to daddy and making him happy.

Just wanted to bring this up, as many furs were effected. The New Orleans kitties here were effected and some of them reside at Rainbow Bridge.
The day Katrina happened mommy was watching TV with Bella and Bella said that it was so sad, because some of the people wouldn't leave their furs...and in one case that mommy heard from her friend that went down to help from here...people were found with their furs, some were rescued with their furs...and for some, it was too late for rescue.
I love the Gulf Coast. I traveled down there with Daddy. Daddy told me when we passed through New Orleans that someday he would be taking us there...because he wanted us to be Southern kitties. I loved the catfish that I got to eat when daddy worked at a restaurant down there. It was real good.
But on today, I wanted to let everyone from NOLA who survived Katrina, that we are thinking of you this week...and sending you many purrs.

I wrote an entry about this, and the Catster fleas did something to it.
Folks, I don't like worrying about lost Furs.
When you non furred 2 legged beings took on our care, you made a promise to our Spirit.
Cats need to remain cared for, cherished and we need to be companions and in many ways, soul children and guardian spirits. We need to remain indoors, unless on a harness and leash, or otherwise protected.
When I hear of Furs that are lost, and could have had something happen to them, it makes me sad.
People...as a cat, I can tell you...being an 'Indoor' cat is not a bad thing.
When you bought yourself into our lives, you changed a part of who we were. When you changed our environment you did so forever. We can't compete with fast cars, fierce dogs or other animals, people who don't like us, and just so many unknowns. When you let us out to roam, you do us a grave dis-service, and it doesn't matter if you live here in the US or somewhere else if there are dangers there that you can't keep from us.
I lose sleep and my appitite for worrying about this.
Mommy saw 2 dead kitties on the side of the road on her way from vacation. One had a little pink collar, but no tags. It made mommy sad the rest of the day.
If you are a Non Fur, and you allow your Fur to roam freely-without supervision...well, what would happen if you allowed one of your human kits that are small to do this....?
Do Furs not matter?
Sorry, I don't mean to hurt feelings-but non furs need to learn that its a DANGEROUS world for us outh there 'in the cold' (or hot, or whatever)
Love and Purrs...
