Hello my friends, sorry I haven't given you an update on me...well I am feeling so much better, but not happy because I can't have my kibbles and treats, I am still not eating my can food everyday..sometimes I eat and then I don't. Mom is at a loss because I will eat a flavor of food, then she will try again and I won't eat it...Mom has wasted so much food. I know I am a picky eater, was before, but more so now.
I get to be out at times, Mom also puts up a screen in front of the rooms door frame so I can see out and get fresh air, I even have the window open I sit there and watch what goes on outside...I am back to being nasty sometimes too...
Mom talked to the vet on Friday about my eating a little food, she told mom she could give me a pill to help me want to eat, but Mom says she will wait and see...I go to the vet on Friday, Mom says she thinks she will get some while we are there just to help me eat more..
Well hopefully I will be able to eat kibbles and especially my treats, I really really want my treats, I can't wait to get the OK...
Now I know I have been unwell and I am doing better, but we are purring and praying for all of our friends that need them...
Be well, be good and love one another....
Sending lots of hugs

Fist of all I have to thank all of my friends for all of the well wishes, purrs and prayers. Then I have to thank diary lady and HQ for choosing me today for my diary entry. WOW I am very honored. Lastly for all my friends that have sent me gifts, purring for me to get better and to eat. Thank you to Buddy my special angel friend for sending me the blue healing ribbon today to help me heal...I know I am on the road to feeling better I am just taking a longer time.
Your purrs and prayers have worked some, but I am still not wanting to eat much and not really on my own. Mom got me more baby food, but now I am not wanting it, not even if she spoon or hand feeds me. Last night I ate some Sheeba whitefish & tuna pate on my own, but Mom was right there watching me.
This morning I meowed at Mom when she came into my room to see me, but once again she gave me something different in can, I sniffed and walked away. Mom thought I would eat when I was ready so she left to do her dogs walks, when she returned home again she checked on me. Well I didn't eat not one little lick...Mom is very worried that I am not eating enough and I have lost weight knowing I only weight 5 lbs she is afraid I will waste away because I don't want to eat.
So she had to take her shower so she doesn't smell like dogs and then she came in with baby food again...no I stuck my nose up at her offering of chicken on a spoon, she even tried putting some on her fingers....notttttt...
So I sat there wondering what will be next, finally she came back in trying again to get me to eat can food like I did the night before I did eat but only after she put it on her fingers and I licked...so I did eat a little, but not much.
Now Mom is going to call the vet to make me my recheck appointment and ask them to have my vet call her.
well Mom just called my vet office I go back in on the 24th if not sooner, she has to wait for my vet to come in on Friday. Mom did talk to the tech that took care of me and helped with my dental work, she says to keep doing what mom is doing until my vet comes in tomorrow. With us living further away from the vet office Mom just can't pick up and take me so we will wait. She told Mom to keep giving me fluids in the syringe to make sure I am not dehydrated and if I want to lick my food off of Moms fingers to just keep doing that at least I eat some food.
I don't mean to make Mom worry, but I am still healing and I still hurt, just not completely well yet. I am out of my room now and acting like myself, but every time I see Mom I run and ride under the dresser, inside the kitty potty box because I think she is going to give me my medication...nasty stuff!!!!
Again thank you all for being here for me, I know I will get better because of all of you, your love, purrs and prayers for me.
Hugs to you all

Hello my friends
Well first we have to say sorry we were not around yesterday to send out special Mother's Day gift, we love the messages and well wishes from our friends to our Mom...Mom says she is unable to thank each and everyone of our sweet wonderpurr friends, so THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS AND MOM FOR SENDING US GIFTS!!!!
Now for me, yes little tiny me all 5lbs of me. I haven't felt good at all, didn't want to eat, not even baby food and I didn't want to drink water either. I have been in a lot of pain and just not feeling myself at all...I have worried Mom that is for sure. I love getting Moms attention she is always with me, she feels so bad that I have been hurting. I do love getting spoon fed too, yes that is right Mom is spoon feeding me the baby food, I must admit the food tastes good and all of this attention makes me feel better.
If Mom doesn't spoon feed me I don't eat, so she now knows she just has to pamper me a little more for a while. I actually ate a whole jar of chicken baby food last night made Mom so very happy. Then with s syringe I got water still not drinking water on my own, Mom give me several each time.
Today I am feeling better I am jumping up on the bed getting into my special beds and sitting at the window cause Mom opened the window it is very hot here today (94)...and she has a fan going too. She is getting me to eat from a plate and spoon now...
Mom is hoping as each days passes I will feel better and soon be eating my can food once again. Still can't have any treats or kibble, but I have to tell you I wouldn't be eating it anyway, my mouth still hurts.
Thanks you for all of your purrs, prayers for me, please continue to purr for me cause we still don't know about the growth, we are hoping it is just from all the infection in my mouth and me chewing.
Mom actually let me out of my room now, I am enjoying be out and hanging out, but of course I can't be with any of my furry family members...not that I every am.
Well I gotta go and enjoy my time out and soaking up the sun.

Well my friends I am not doing well right now, still recovering, very sleepy and wobbly.
Not sure what was going on when Mom took me to the vet, they took me in back after talking to Mom and having her sign a paper about my dental work. But I do have to tell you there was this dog sniffing my carrier and wouldn't leave so I hissed and did the smacky paw on my carrier, the doggie barked at me and I smacky pawed again. That just started my day off even more bad.
Well they stick me with needles and soon I was sleepy, next thing I knew I was waking up and hurting big time, could hardly stand up and thinking to myself what happened? My personal vet tech that took care of me was talking to me and checking me making sure I was OK, Well now what do you think! I feel like you know what my mouth hurts and I don't know why.
Finally I am more awake and doing a little better so they told me I was getting to go home now...it was 5:30pm....it took me a long time to recover enough for them to let me go home. I couldn't wait to get out of there and be in my safe room.
Kandi's Mom here, well it was a very long day & the news wasn't too good, because my Mom never took her in for check ups and have her teeth cleaned Kandi's mouth and teeth were in bad shape. She has Feline oral resorptive lesions....she had to have 10 teeth pulled and they found a growth as well...they are thinking it may be from her chewing on her gums for a long time. I knew her mouth was bad, but not all of this. I saw pictures of her teeth and now I feel so bad that I didn't take her in sooner, but with Kandi not letting me do to much to her I couldn't really look into her mouth.
She was under longer than expected so it is taking her longer to get back to normal they said part of it is because of her age and because she is so tiny, very groggy most of the day, not eating much trying to give her baby food meat, she eating some now, she is getting pain medication 3 times a day & she has stitches in her mouth.
My heart breaks for her because what she is going through and may have to go through. The growth they have kept and once she goes back in 2 weeks for a recheck we will see how the area where they cut the growth from is healing or the growth is coming back. It possible could be cancer...all I can think of not again not now, I can't go through this again. But I am praying for good news, but know that it might not be. I talked to her vet and I am not sure I will put her through what I put Tallulah through...we just may keep her comfortable.
So please pray for my cute little tiny Kandi, she is my Moms cat and to loose her is like loosing all of my Mom again..
Kandi and mom Peggy

Hi friends well my Mom came in today and told me "Kandi you need to make sure you eat today cause tomorrow you can't. I asked her why and she told me I have to go to the vet early morning and stay most of the day. Again I ask her why she told me I am getting my toofies cleaned and I will have some pulled too" Oh no I am not sure I am going to like this at all...so I ask again what does that mean, well Mom says that my toofie have a lot of tarter on them not sure what that means either, she said that she has noticed I am having lots of trouble eating especially my kibbles and my very favorite treats & I drool a lot...so I guess I have to go and have all of this done tomorrow. Mom told me that I will feel so much better and I will be able to eat my treats again.
You see my first Mom didn't have money to take me to the vet so my toofies are in bad shape, when new Mom closed her Moms bank account she found out that her Mom had more money left than she thought so she is using that money to have my toofies taken care of so I will feel better and stay healthy...my final gift of love from my first mom.
I know I won't be happy and really won't understand what is going on, but I know both my Moms are taking care of me, my first mom will be there with me watching over me while I am asleep and help me wake up. (I will be getting human grade anesthesia which makes me sleepy but I will not be so knocked out that I don't come out of it and I will recover faster)
So if I could get a few purrs from a few of my friends that would be great, I know mom will worry but she knows I will be OK cause I have my first mom watching over me and my friends purring for me.
We will let you know how I am doing after it is all over!
hugs to you all

I really don't understand but my new Mom came in crying last week, she put her head to mine kisses me and tells me Kandi I know you don't understand why you came here to live with me, but you needed a safe place to live, I told our Mom I would always take care of you. Well today I have to tell you that our Mom went to heaven March 16th, she is our angel now, she will be watching over us always. I know you remember her even if you have been with me for 3+ years now. I know Mom loved you and was sad that you couldn't be with her anymore, she was having a hard time remembering things and at the end she didn't remember either of us...but somewhere she still remembers us and loves us....Oh I am so sad that my first Mom is an angel, but I have seen her, she has come to visit me, not my new Mom...she says she needs time to heal from the dementia that took her from us a while ago. She will visit with both of us again when she is better...
I am happy I have a special angel watching over me, but sad she won't come over see me and give me kisses, but now my new Mom will do that...and I have to tell you I am a little nicer to her, she still can't just come in pet me and love me, but I give her little licks on the hand, rub her hand and let her just a little scretch by my ear...I am so blessed to have had my very special first Mom and now another special Mom...
My guardian angel is watching over me! love you Mom

Look we all have our pages decorated with butterflies and we are all honoring our ANGEL SISFUR TALLULAH! This month on the 22nd it would have been her 12th birthday Mom decided that we will all have different butterflies on our pages…
Next month will be a hard and sad month for us, it will be Tallulah’s first anniversary going to the rainbow bridge and we will continue to honor her with more butterflies…Tallulah is all about her butterfly garden in heaven and she let Mom know she was Ok with a beautiful white butterfly…how else can we honor her but with butterflies…
Reminding all of our friends that you still need to have your Mom check you for any lumps, you just never know, we found that out! Never assume it is nothing, we didn’t and it saved Xena….
Remember Tallulah’s kitty breast cancer awareness is all year around every year…to many kitties are getting breast cancer and other cancers and we need to make sure our pawrents check us….
So help us honor our Tallulah on the 22nd of this month by decorating your page with butterflies or having a graphic of a butterfly on your page….we hope you will do this!
Tallulah is sending all butterflies from heaven!
Love, hugs and angel kitty kisses
Xena, Zeke, Tu Two and Kandi

Oh cat!!! as you all can see I did get shaved, not because I wanted to, but I was all knotted & matted underneath and only a few on my back...my new Mom tried to brush me but I am not good at letting her yet...when she did brush me and check my underneath there were matted knots all over....so she made the arrangements again to have my groomer Shelly from Aussie Pet mobile come to the house in her mobile trailer...
Well I was having an OK day minding my own business in my room, when Mom opened the door put the pet fence out and was waiting for me to walk out of the room so she could close the door put a towel over me and get me into my carrier....I wasn't having anything to do with it...after several failed attempts she finally got me and put me into the carrier and there I sat...mind you I am not a happy cat no I am not.
Then I was outside and into the trailer, as soon as I smelled the shampoos and other animals I knew I was in trouble...
After the last time my groomer Shelly shaved me and I scratched her she was ready for me, knowing I am not nice sometimes...so she put a collar on me and wrapped my paws with medical tape. Now she was ready to work on me...collar on, paws wrapped and on my side....humiliating MOL MOL....let me out of here!!!!!
Slowly she she shaved my belly and then Mom came to check on me, cause she said to do what ever to get me groomed and get the matted hair off of me..Well Mom and Shelly decided it was best to be shaved again and start all over and hopefully I will let Mom brush me and I won't get knotted...but just in case Mom will have me shaved underneath again in a couple of months...
I got a complete shaving except for my lower paws, tail and head...yes I do look funny and I am naked and humiliated, wouldn't any of you after having to go through this awful grooming...I guess I really need to let Mom brush me so I don't have to go through this again....but I probably will I just am not cooperative when it comes to things like being brush...
Mom told me she will brush me no matter what...oh oh I guess I better let her, I don't want to get shaved again...
Check out my new photos of me with no hair...I do need a sweater I am cold...you know what I have a kitty heating pad in my carrier where I love to sleep...that will have to do.
Tomorrow is another day and as each day goes by my hair gets a little longer, soon I will be beautiful again with my long hair...i think I will go get comfy in my warm carrier and take a nap before dinner...
Almost forgot THANK YOU HQ FOR SELECTING ME TODAY TO BE ONE ON THE DDP'S AND FOR MY FRIENDS & MY NEWEST FRIENDS FOR MY GIFTS AND HELPING ME CELEBRATE TODAY...LOVE AND HUGS TO YOU ALL
