Arrival Story: Finney was a gift to me from my veterinarian. I had lost my beloved soul kitty Alex and was beyond devastated. So depressed I wouldn't eat, my vet called me to the office to "talk". She presented me with this little orange hellion she named Finnegan because he looked Irish to her. Little did we know what a large boy he would become, he was such a peanut when she found him. Someone had abandoned him on the side of the road and when my vet found him, he was covered in fleas and had an upper respiratory infection. She said she would otherwise keep him but couldn't think of a better mom for him than me! So I took him home and now he's one of my two little scamps who run my house.
Bio: Finnegan helps me run my website dedicated to helping kitties with Inflammatory Bowel Disease, pancreatitis, fatty liver and other GI related disorders, http://www.ibdkitties.net/. Finney is thankfully healthy but my previous kitty Alex lost her battle to these diseases. I also have a blog: http://ibdkitties.blogspot.com/

Cat of the week, January 24, 2011
Thank you to everyone for my DDP honors, prezzies and pictures and stuff. Mommy is sick with a bad sinus infection so we're not going to be staying long on the puter. Just wanted to let you all know we love you! Grammy and grampy are doing okay and now it's mom's turn to be sick. she went to the doc today to get medicine and will be good as new in no time. Thanks for coming to my gotcha day pawty, glad you all had fun!
Wow! This is my gotcha day and I am so happy because I have the bestest home, the bestest mommy and the bestest furriends! I love you all and I am so lucky to have you here to celebrate this day with me. Things have been tough around here so today is a good day for a pawty.
I know we haven't updated about grammy and grampy lately. the news about grampy is good and bad. his heart is doing better but his cancer is back and it's gone into his bone now. So he's going to his doctor this week to see about something called a hormone shot to slow it down. It can't stop it though, but it can slow it down.
Grammy has her eye appointment this week too because she has bleeding behind the eye. So we're not sure what's going on with that. We're hoping something with a laser can fix it but we'll see. So things are kind of tough around here. Everyone is taking it one day at a time and trying to make them both as comfortable as possible.
So on that lovely note, let's have a wonderful day today. The birds are singing, the sun is shining and it's my gotcha day! Thank you all for the wonderful prezzies and expressions of love. I love you all too! Very much! Thanks for being here for us. We'll probably need you all in the future.
time to pawty! have some cake, cuppycakes, tuna samiches, pizza, catnip juice and tea.
GRAMPY IS HOME from the hospital!!! he's doing good, just tired. He could hardly get any sleep at that place, the man next to him snored like a freight train. Grampy felt like he'd never get out of there. he said it was probably easier to break out of prison than to get out of the hospital, MOL. Mom is super duper colossal tired. She needs to catch up on her sleep after all this. We've been wondering where she keeps going several times per day, she's hardly been home for over a week!
Hey! We know a lot of your are not on Facebook but some of you are and you might want to know that mom started an IBD support group there: Facebook support group. Just in case some of you would like to join.
So they are keeping an eye on grampy's meds and he's got several doctor's appointments in the next month so mom will have to take him to those. He's got a new walker with wheels and everything! It's pretty cool! I think I might try to ride on it later, I don't know if grampy will let me. Mom says I'm being silly, I can't balance on that thing, MOL. I'm still gonna try. See you all later and THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PURRING AND PRAYING FOR MY GRAMPY! We love you all so furry much, those POTPs are magic!
