My Bridge Day Thanks to ALL

August 28th 2016 2:24 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Thanks to all of you for condolences, messages and gifts when I travelled up to the Rainbow Bridge on August 26, 2016.

It happened very fast, in only a few days, no desire to eat, being fragile, wobbly walking and I might have even been on the way to the Bridge when my Dad set me to lay beside him at bedtime because I did not close my eyes, but I was breathing. God has the plan for our journey to Heaven.

I am finding my way around at the Bridge with the help of many Angel friends and my Angel family: Tyson, Tabatha, Serena, Felix, Samantha and Georgina.

Back home I can see from above that Ginger and Charlie are being normal cats: eating, sleeping and looking into things. My Vet sent a plant to my Dad in my memory, and Charlie was checking it over and sitting beside it. I will miss those two.

Thanks all again, very much and for the photos from: We Bees Siameezers; and from Tundra, Rory, Manytoes & Lynzee; and from Big Harry, Patches, Silvio, Max & Family; and from Mayhem and to all their Moms: thank you also.

Love Elsa,

Elsa Has Gone to the Rainbow Bridge - Aug. 26, 2016 - Age 11

Elsa passed away in her sleep August 26, 2016 at age 11.

She has had a mass on her bowels for about a year or so. She had been her normal silly self since the diagnosis, scratching her favorite places, being silly and inquisitive, staring at me for food on my desk while I was at the computer, sitting on my computer mouse which seemed to be a favorite place. I think she was smart - she would sit on the mouse so I couldn't use it and would therefore go and feed her. So clever! I will miss her; sometimes I called her Miss Glamor Silliness.

The mass caused her to have loose stool, sometimes around the house. I added a litterbox to the kitchen and the cleaning up after her around the house added to the chores. Her bum needed to be bathed more often. At bedtime she always came to sleep beside me and I will miss that now. Even though she had a mass, I was going to take care of her as long as she was able to be her normal self.

On Aug. 24/16 she came to me for food many times (she did that every day - came to me for food often during the day and I'd feed her), but then the food did not interest her, even her favorites she would not eat. She became weaker and a bit wobbly without nutrition. She was the same about the food on Aug. 25/16 and in addition, was lying down all the time.

I was afraid I'd have to have her put to sleep Aug. 26/16 but she passed away in her sleep the morning of Aug. 26. I took her to sleep beside me like she always did and when I woke, she had gone to the Rainbow Bridge. It was now her time, her time had come. Rest In Peace at the Bridge, Miss Elsa the Lioness honey.

I took her to the Vet for cremation and they'll let me know when her ashes and urn are returned - in about a week and a half. Even when your kitty is sick for quite awhile, and you know this day is coming, and you want her to stay with you a long time, and the day arrives, you still cry.

Thank you kitty furriends for your gifts and sweet messages today!

And thank you Tundra, Manytoes, Rory and Lynzee for the photo you made; I love it!

My poo is still runny and I'm thin but my attitude and the look in my face and my eyes is not of a sick cat. I'm my usual self but I have an illness; which is that mass on my intestines. My Dad does have to give me a bath often.

Thanks to all of you again; I'm sorry that this place is closing up soon and I'll miss you!

Love Elsa, xo

 

My Birthday February 27, 2016

February 28th 2016 3:01 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Thank you kitties for your gifts today, from my furriends!

And thank you Tundra & Mom, and family for the photo you made; and thanks Dana and your kitties Alli, A Boy Named Lucy, Jameson, Patches, Max and family for the photo you made for me today!

Today my Dad fed me every time I wanted and he took pictures of me and him together. I am still thin, often hungry but don't eat much and about two months ago the Vet found a mass on my intestine (by X-Ray) which she cannot operate on or treat; actually any treatment would not be successful even if we tried.

My poo is always puddles, some are tiny dots and there are even several of them around the house. I sometimes make a loud meow, and it is likely when the poo is trying to squeeze through the mass I have.

My Dad gives me a B-12 shot every 2 weeks.

But I'm still here; doing my quirky things like scratching on a hard plastic carton that quarts of milk are delivered in (some people store their record albums in them) or scratching on the leg of a fake wooden table (which is likely plastic too)!

One of the silliest sounding things I do is, being a 'cat', I like sitting beside Dad's computer 'mouse' - and he can't use it very well - I'm there now!

Thanks to all of you again!

Love Elsa, xo

 

Gotcha Day July 21, 2015 Anniversary - Thank You!

Thank you kitty furriends for your gifts today!

And thank you Lynzee for the photo you made; I think it's very sweet!

Since I last wrote, my dad has taken me to the Vet for a checkup and blood work because my poo was still runny. Now I'm getting a B-12 shot once a week given to me by my dad. He feels like a doctor! This injection is to give me nutrients since I'm so thin.

I also get Tylosin syringed in my mouth once a day. It's supposed to be twice a day but I hate it so much, that I sometimes get suspicious if my dad comes near me. He does not like that, so he only catches me by surprise once a day rather than twice. The syringing into my mouth only takes a second - I should get used to it shouldn't I? He also then gives Tyson a pill and a syringe of Lasix both of which are for his heart disease; my poor little brother. But I let Tyson clean me and then chase me and then I growl back at him so he'll stop. I try to be accommodating!

Thanks to all of you again!

Thanks for my Birthday Gifts Feb. 27, 2015!

Thanks for all your gifties on my Birthday and thanks to Tundra and to We Bees Siameezers for the photos they sent me; and I gladly posted on my page.

I'm not taking the Prednisolone that the Vet gave a few months ago, to make my poops less runny because I'm so thin and I did not eat much when the Prednisolone was mixed in my food. My dad feels I better gain weight and he lets me eat food without medicine in it.

Later he might give me the medicine if I gain more weight. My dad watches me eat and makes sure that when I walk away, he will bring my dish to me again and again to be sure I've eaten as much as I really can eat without forcing me.

Thank you all again!

Gotcha Day Anniversary, July 21, 2014

Thanks for all your gifties on my Gotcha Day Anniversary and I got a cute picture from We Bees Siameezers! I'll try to put it on my page. Ginger and I have been with our dad now, since July 21, 2007.

At that time the family was Felix, Serena, and Tabatha. Later on, Felix and then Serena, flew up to the Rainbow Bridge.

Today the family is Tabatha, Ginger and me, and Tyson who came to the family in 2009.

I've gained a little weight on the Prednisolone that the Vet gave and my poops are not always runny; sometimes they are but that is likely because I don't always eat the food when the Prednisolone is in it. But my dad watches me eat and makes sure that when I walk away, he will bring my dish to me again and again to be sure I've ate as much as I really can eat without forcing me. I'm so picky and fussy sometimes and yet I'm begging for food usually before the others are!

Thank you all again!

Love Elsa, xo

 

Beautiful Birthday Wishes, Feb. 27, 2014

Thank you all for the wishes on my birthday today!

I love the photos from Lynzee, We Bees Siamese and the Kasian Family. I'll post those next. Thanks too for the mail, and pretty gifties on my page!!

At my last Vet visit the Vet said I was too thin and my Dad said my poo was always a puddle; because he'd see me going, sometimes. Plus I would make a loud meow out of nowhere once or twice a day.

The Vet tested me with blood tests and found I have a bowel infection. She gave me Metronidazole (drops to put in my mouth). It was so bitter I would run every time my Dad came near me because I thought he would give me that bitter medicine. This is not good when a thin kitty needs to eat more often. Plus, so much medicine leaked out of my mouth that I hardly got any of it anyway. It was so sticky that the fur under my chin matted!

So the Vet changed the medicine to Prednisolone that has a chicken flavor. My dad mixes it in my wet food twice a day. Since I usually don't finish all the food in a bowl, Dad still does not know if I get enough medicine. But the loud meows don't seem to happen as often, so maybe the medicine helps a little.

I have, in the past few months, developed a bad habit of 'sometimes' not always, pooping in the living room. Most of the time it's still usually small, soft puddles but sometimes it's elongated but narrow stool. Maybe the medicine is helping a little bit.

I do use the litter box too. One problem is, when I do the pooping in the living room, it's while Dad is at work, and he's not sure it's me, but it's a pretty good guess it's me doing that.

Time will tell. Time also makes Dad clean up after me often in the living room. I'm almost done the Prednisolone so once I see the Vet again we'll find out if we need to do anything more.

I look and act and run around totally normally though as if nothing's wrong.

Meanwhile I'll run around happy thinking of all your birthday wishes; thank you all again!

Love Elsa, xo

Thank you to all my Catster friends for the skeleton's dancing on my page! They are doing a dance that I know I cannot imitate!

I hope you all had fun on Hallowe'en and that it was not too spooky because you might have had some strange looking visitors coming to your doors!

Love Elsa,

A Diary Pick on July 30, 2013

July 30th 2013 4:11 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ]

My goodness now I'm chosen as Daily Diary Pick today!

After my Gotcha Day anniversary I had plans for grooming but changed my grooming appointment and chose Tuesday, July 23 to get my cleansing bath, brushing, and nails done at the Vet (and a sanitary clip too!).

My fur is matting in spots again already but it's that time of year when that can happen.

I still like to follow my Dad to the kitchen when he goes there because I eat so little that I get hungry more often, like my late brother Felix used to do. Tabatha is like that too, wanting more food. We like our dry food but not as much as canned cat food. But then we can't overfeed the heavier kitties like Ginger and Tyson can we! Maybe my Dad will sneak food quietly to me and Tabatha!

My favorite things are sitting in my box on the desk when my Dad uses his computer and being the first to go sleep beside him when he goes to bed.

Thank you all for your comments, and paw mails and the photos made for me by Tundra and by We Bees Siamese. I will get them on my page soon!

Thanks for your congratulations and the Ice Cream Cone: from Tony, Anna, Greystone, Sammy, Stormy, Cleo and Ashe! I think I'll see if I can bake a catnip cake because the best part is having cake with - Ice Cream!

Thank you all!

Love Elsa, xo
