I am a big boy. I goes to the vet every month for my diabetes test. Its very hard for mommy to carry a box with my bigness, so I walks on a leash. I stay by mommy side the whole time and goe where she leads me. (Cept when we're in the yard the I 'splore)


Arrival Story:
April 23, 2008------------------------------ ---------------------------------- - So one minute we were at home with our friends, and the next we were in our V-E-T boxes in the car, going who-knows-where. The longer the ride got, the more I got worried. We should have been to the V-E-T by now. Where the heck were we going? I could hear Squashies in the other box, meowing all tough-like, but I could tell she was as scared as I was; and every time she mewed Pops started making noises like he was crying, which only made me more scared, he never cries- like almost ever. So I figured Pops and I were taking Squashies to that place they took the dog last year, when it blew kibbles all over the house. They put it in the car, and drove away. They were gone a long time. When they came home, Pops was snuffling, and the dog was gone. I thought that was pretty harsh really, I mean sure, Squashies spits-up some pretty impressive hairballs every once in awhile, but she doesn't barf all over God's green earth like the mutt did. Then I started to think about that time I ate that plant and all the barfing I did... HEY!!! WAIT!!! HOLY-CRAP!! I won't do it again I promise!!! April 24, 2008------------------------------ ---------------------------------- - So it turns out we were both being left behind. Pops was crying, I mean sobbing crying but he left us anyway. I don't think he's coming back. It's not so bad here. I share a cage with Squashies, but she's so small, its not such a big deal. The gushiefood is great, and I don't have to fight off the other cats to get my fill, and we get out a lot to play too. Still, I miss Pops and the other cats. I wonder what they are doing right now. I sure wished I hadn't barfed on the floor. April 25, 2008------------------------------ ---------------------------------- - There are a lot of people coming and taking the other cats away. One of the cats that has been here awhile says that they are going to new homes, with toys and lots of places to run, play, hide and sleep. He says mostly the kittens get new homes. I guess nobody wants two old kitties like Squashies and me. August 18, 2008------------------------------ --------------------------------- So this nice lady came in and they let us out of our cages. Squashies was rubbing all over her legs and jumping up and doing the cute thing. Me- I saw this as a prime opportunity to stick my paw into the other cat's cages and snag some gushiefood. So Squashies' short-coming, other than the fact that she's so freaky short, is that she doesn't really like to be picked up. So when it was time to do the cuddling I stopped eating and did my part. Truthfully, I was surprised that she could pick me up, my being 22 lbs of luscious kitty flesh. But she held me like she wasn't going to drop me, so I did the purring and rubby-facing that gets me face scratches. August 19, 2008------------------------------ --------------------------------- We're in our furrever home. Its very nice here and our new mommy gives us lots of food and toys and ring beds. She was holding me and chatting when she said the nicest thing: She said Squashies got her attention, but I was the deal-maker. Imagine that! An old cat like me! A Deal-Maker!

I'm a diabetic which mommy had to figure out- because i kept having episodes where i stared out into space. So mommy had them do a blood test and my sugar was 375. So now i get shots twice a day and I am fine. I had some weight to lose when I got to my furrever home, and I have to go slow on account of my diabetes. I've lost 2 lbs 3 ounces so far!

Sorry I ignores you diaries, but I am a very busy cat. I has sleeping and eatting and groomings to do!

I sleeps in the basement last night on daddy's fluffy blanket on the couch. I've never slept their before, usually I sleeps with mommy, but I went down there to use the basement literbox and then I was tired so I figured I would just takes a little nap and the next thing you know, I hears mommy upstairs openning up breakfast.

So mommy tells me that she came down to get me at bedtime but that I looks so comfy she not want to wake me. I think she floffed the blanket though, was very cozy when I wakes up.

Hi Diaries. I finally got mommy to stop working long enough to fix my blog. I'm not really sure why i changes it, no one ever comes by, but I wants to track my life. So i changed my blog thingie-its now at-

Nothing much to reports today. I sleeped, and I eatted, and I washed myself very good.

I don't think I tells you yet- but my little sister Squashies likes to clean-up with her thumby paws everytime she eats or poops. So she tored a hole in the wall a little bit after she pooped today. Mommy not seem mad so I guess is not so bad.

Anyways that's all i got to talk about today. Have a good night Diaries!
