Hi everyone! We've been wanting for awhile now to get onto Catster and tell you what's been happening but of course the stupid fleas prevented us. After I had my toofies done, I came home and was freaking out bad. I was absolutely terrified of mommy, like BAD. Shaking badly, cowering in the corner all the time, it was terrible. I felt like I was losing my mind!

Turned out I was having a very bad reaction to the pain medication. mommy figured that out pretty quickly, called the vet and they said to stop it immediately. Took me a day or two to come out of it but I was fine after that. Since then I've been feeling fantastic.

Of course Lacey was hissing at me for a week after. sheesh. she didn't hiss at me the whole time I was in my drug stupor but as soon as I started coming out of it she was. BRAT! But all is good now. I had 3 toofies pulled. Two of them were already broken off and causing me pain and one of my lower canines was rotting and had to come out.

Lacey wanted me to say thank you to everyone for remembering her birfday. It was a really bad and scary day for us and mommy just couldn't deal with coming on here or trying to. Once I started to feel better mommy gave Lacey a little pawty and we made up for it. so thank you everyone for the love and prezzies from both of us!

OH! and I got a lion cut while I was getting my toofies pulled. I felt really weird for a week and didn't even want to groom myself. I never had one of these before. But I love it now, nice and cool, no hairballs, it's great! thanks again! XXOO

Finnegan's momma here. Please purr hard for him. He's not doing well since his dental yesterday. He had a bad reaction to his pain medication and has not eating since the night before. He's also suffering from paranoia now and is terrified of me. I had to syringe feed him via the vet's advice and he was shaking so bad the entire time like I was going to kill him. I am so distraught right now, this is so awful. I want my boy back! Please purr!


Happy birfday to MEEEEE!!

Thanks everyone for helping me celebrate my 7th birfday. Momma is depressed because she does not like me getting older. Not one bit! I can't really help it mommy, jeez. I'll try and stay a baby as long as I can. Mommy says I'll always be her baby boy. I could use some purrs though. Going in for my dental this Monday and they are going to do something to me called a lion cut. ROOOARRR! I always knew I was a big lion. Lacey had her dental last month and she's feeling so great she's been running all over the house like a kitten. So I hope that happens to me. My toofies have a lot of gunk on them. I don't like the vet at all though and I hiss a lot and stuff. Please purr it goes well and I come home with brand new sparkling toofies! Love you all! Miss you! XXOO


So long, farewell, our love for you is timeless

Finney, Lacey and Alex's mom here. I didn't think this announcement would make me cry so much but it is. I am not surprised this is happening, we've seen it coming for quite a long time now. I am a believer that some things just come to an end and you move on. I don't always follow that advice very well and who knows how I'll feel after it really happens. But I wanted to tell you all you just don't know what you've done for me. You have no idea.

When I first came to Catster I had been suffering from very, very bad depression for many years. I'd lost a lot in my life, had a lot of tragedy. I never talked about this but I want to tell you so you know what you mean to me. I never wanted to put myself out there into the public ever again. I fought it every step of the way. But when Alex got sick I had no choice but to join another group to get information on IBD. I met a lot of friends in that group I still have today but where I've truly met a lot of my friends and what helped me come back out of my shell was coming here and meeting all of you.

I've had so much fun and laughed so hard. Laughed until I cried or felt like peeing my pants! That's something I hadn't done for years. You all opened up my heart again and I just don't know how to thank you for that. I still have my days where I'd like to crawl back under the blankets and not have to deal with the outside world. I get hurt very easily. But because of Alex I have a mission, one that's not been easy to follow. Some days I still want to just give it all up and go back to when I didn't have to deal with it.

But so many of you still hold me up and carry me on your shoulders, if not here, then in regular email, Facebook and the phone. Not even my friends here at home treat me with so much love and genuine compassion. I just don't think I could have made it through so much without a lot of you. I consider meeting each and every one of you, one of the biggest blessings of my life. I'm truly, truly grateful for knowing such brave, strong, devoted people. You've taught me there is real love in this world.

I want you all to know I cherish all of our memories together in my heart. That will never go away. And someday when I'm sitting in a rocking chair and holding a cat in my lap, old and feeble, I'll think back to some of our pawties, our diaries about poop (Newman), our times of despair when one of us has lost a fur child or a human loved one, or even when someone we've known has passed away. We've all had each other to lean on and cry, appreciate what makes life really special and know that we were genuinely loved and cared for.

Nothing beats that in my book. And I will always, always love each of you so much. Okay, I'm crying so hard now I can't see the screen. I don't know what else to say except; we love you, myself, my angel kitties and my living babies. Thank you for helping me feel love and beauty in this world again. XXOO

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!

Have a great long weekend everyone!

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.
Love Finney

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!


grampy is sick

Hi everyone! I realize we haven't been around much. Mom has been very, very busy taking care of grampy. You see, he was in the hospital for three days a little over a week and a half ago. He has a terrible bladder infection but also now he has a bad ticker. He had very high blood pressure and now come to find out that at some point in his life, he had a mild heart attack and it did some damage to his heart. He's seeing a cardiologist tomorrow so we could use some purrs if you have some to spare. He's really been feeling very, very exhausted and getting depressed since he's been home. He can't do too much, he gets weak and tired easy. Mom has been very stressed out and yesterday was a BAD day running around driving him to two doctor's appointments. You all know she has her own health issues but she is the only one home during the day to help out. Her sisters are helping when they are not at work though thank goodness. But she's worried about him and very tired herself. I hope they can get his blood pressure meds under control because now his blood pressure is TOO LOW. ugh. it's crazy. Poor gramps! He just turned 86 in June and feels useless.

We hope everyone here in Catsterland is doing well, we miss you all very much. thanks in advance for any spare purrs, we appreciate it! Love you guys! XXOO Love Finney pooh
