Just did my semi-annual vet visit. Took the vet THREE sticks to get my blood. I was OK -- not thrashing around or anything -- but Mom was about ready to call for another phlebotomist. But the vet did a bikini shave and found a good vein. Well, it's almost summertime after all, and I do love my bikinis.
Anyway, all is good. Thyroid at the right level, all the kidney and liver numbers looking good. The bad news is that I have a couple of bad teeth (well, really I only HAVE a couple of teeth). Need to get them cleaned or extracted.
But the vet won't admit any cats who aren't up to date on their vaccinations. And at my age, Mom doesn't want me to have any vaccines that aren't absolutely necessary. So we have to wait for a titer to come back to see if my distemper antibodies are still at a good level.

Wowee! I'm a daily diary pick! Couldn't have happened at a better time. All the attention has been going to the Norse cat, on account of HE'S going to a cat show. Hmmph. We're all just as gorgeous as he is. Mom says she may take one of us, too, because there's a category for cats who don't have those special papers and long names.
Meanwhile, I got treats at breakfast and they didn't! Oh, I love feeling special.
And in honor of St. Pat's day, I'm adopting the name O'nyx for the holiday.

I just got Tagged by BIG HARRY!
Q.-Are you Irish?
A.- Um, not sure. I have SOME red hair. Can I be honorary Irish?
Q.-Do you and /or your family celebrate St. Patrick's Day?
A.-We celebrate pretty much everything!
A. -Mom & Dad drink fizzy stuff in fancy glasses. We get extra nice food, like sometimes sauteed chicken livers. Yum!
Q.-Will you wear Green?
A.-We're not much for dressing up, but Sev and Bear have green eyes. Does that count?
Q.- What will you wear?
A.- Maybe I'll get a hat.
Q.-Do you like Corned Beef and Cabbage?
A.-Dunno. The humans aren't fond of corned beef, and I don't have the recipe. We have our cabbage with roast pork or sausages. Or I should say THEY do. I don't like cabbage. Lettuce, now....
Q.-Do you believe in leprechauns?
A.-The tooth fairy told me they exist.
Q.-What would you like to find at the end of the rainbow?
A.-Some of those chicken livers would be nice! And a pot of gold for Mom and Dad. They spend a lot of money on us.
Copy this to your diary so I can read your answers! And thanks, Big Harry!

Fuss, what fuss? I didn't hear anything.

Hello and welcome to my my world. I've been meaning to write, but I'm a little shy and it seemed better to spend my time watching the food bowl. But my sibs tell me what a great time they are having with their diaries, and I can't leave all the fun to them.
My name is Onyx, and I'm the oldest daughter of this household. I do my best to keep my humans company, but it would be undignified to run around and chase things for their amusement. So I limit myself to sitting next to them on the couch.
I really do try my best to be amiable, but I'll not put up with any of that silly 'picking up the cat' nonsense. A proper lady must stand with her paws on the floor, not flailing about in the air like some furry windmill.
