A year ago today we lost our cousin Moufasa to cancer. That's cousin Midnight's brofur. He was such a pain to her, he drove her nuts. But the day he died, when momma came home and went downstairs to feed him, Midnight knew something was very wrong. She has a tiny squeak of a meow, mostly you can't even hear her. Not this time. She stood in the stairway meowing like they never heard, while mommy had him in her arms wrapped in a towel waiting for his mommy to rush home from work. He was dying, but that boy was hanging on so he could say goodbye to everyone. Mouffey was SUCH a character, a Flame Point Siamese with a GIANT big mouth! In the summer when the windows were open you could hear him from downstairs going "woo woo? woo woo?" MOL! and sometimes "rerow? rerow?" Just like Astro in the Jetsons. He was so so so funny and had eyes that went the opposite way instead of crossed inwards. He was a giant love bug and mom saved his life. When mom's sister moved back home, Midnight and Mouffey were not in good condition, not at all!!!!! Oh my god did mommy cry the day she saw them come home. But she took over and started feeding them the good stuff, gave Mouffey alternative medicine for his kidneys and wow he was great after that! Mom could not go in the yard and work on her flowers without him yelling as loud as he could through the window to her. What a mouth on that guy! I could hear mom say "Mouffey SHUT UP!!!" MOL. The neighbors must have said "what on earth is that?" Sigh. Mom loved him dearly and he loved her back. He knew she saved him and he gave her endless, ENDLESS headbonks and purrs for it. He was a pain but mostly a good boy who loved everyone. Not a mean bone in his body. Cancer ravaged his poor body but he ate like a horse until the end and was never in any pain. The day mom came home to find him barely able to stand up and hold his head up, barely conscious, she lost it. She knew that day would come but still...she'd given him an extra two years. Mom is trying not to cry writing this but it's hard. She always loved Mouffey from way back when he was a kitten. He was such a big boy, she called him King Moufasa. Midnight changed after he died. At first she was as happy as a clam! Probably thought he was just gone for a little while. But then she became depressed and sick. And now mom is helping her. For now she's doing much better than she was. Mom's been giving her Moufasa's all natural kidney support pills twice a day for the last couple of days and what a change in her! Stretching out, eating like a horse, playing! wow! She'd forgotten how well those things work. We know today is a tough day for several of our friends. We're thinking of you also, Tigger's daddy and Kally Kat's mommy. We love you both.
On the ME front, guess what? I picked today to let my mommy pet me and kiss me!!! She came home from running errands and I jumped up on the bed asking for luvies! I haven't done that in well over a week. She still has to be a little cautious and slow but I couldn't stand it anymore and Moufasa came and whispered in my ear how lucky I am and to stop being a giant doodyhead because he'd haunt me. He means it too! MOL.
OH! And thank you everyone for my second DDP in a row! Almost forgot that. I'm hoping I'll be okay now mom is going to stay cautiously optimistic. She told me she missed me and loved me and kissed my furry head a million times. Then she whispered in my ear in a sweet voice that I was a big old farthead! MOL. That's nice meowmy, I deserve it.
Here's a video mom made of Moufasa begging for his treats during pill time:
MOL!!! I can see that Moufasa was one in a million. He was very lucky to have such a great hummin like your meowmy.
I'm just soooo happy that he had good life. Finney you're a lucky special kitteh who NEEDS to lurv on his hummin as much as possible!
Thanks Henry, wasn't he funny? When they first came to live here, me and Lacey heard him and were like "WHAT IN THE CAT IS THAT?!!!" MOL.
Seems lately we are always apologizing.Missed your DDP but we also missed our Wally's! We were not here. So you got it twice for the same entry? Diary Gal loves you, eh?
Moufasa was adorable and what a great voice! What can any kitty ask for, but to be so loved! That is everything!
Finney, I knew you would come around. How can you not? To be a lovebug is in your orange genes!
Now be to nice to your mom~always! OK?
Love and bonks
Oh I don't know if it's for the same entry. HUH! I didn't even think of that! MOL
Sounds like Moufasa was my king of cat!!! Wish i's could have met him. Bet the 2 of us would have been quite the handful!!! MOL
Finney, BOUT TIME!!! Glad you got the poop outta yous brain!! Guess i's has to tell Santa Paws to hold off on de mouseheads!!
Moufasa would LOVE this tribute!! We love the way he looks and talks!! MOL! What a character!
Well, each of us is a gift to our hyoomes. They are chosen to spend time with us and enjoy our idiosyncrasies, but in the end, we all have to go. It's much better that way than if the hyoomes left us first!
Glad you were gifted with the beautiful Moufasa. Glad you were gifted with Finney, and that SOMEBUDDY finally gave him a good talking-to!!! Hope it lasts!! Luv, Tink
Sounds like my kind of guy. Mouthy! Mol!
Hold on to those great memories of the great King Moufasa.
Finney, your still a doodyhead, but it is nice that you let your Mommie love on you.
Thanks Zach, from anyone else that would be not so nice MOL. Blizz my mommy says to hold off on telling Santa that just in case but I say I don't need those mousey heads anymore!
Mommy went downstairs and played with Midnight with the feather boa and she was rolling all over the floor loving it! MOL.

thank you everyone! The only thing is that Middy is still bleeding. We finally got a pee sample tonight and it's pink! well, you know what I mean, red with urine. she's not in any pain she was playing and eating up a storm tonight. But she's peeing small dots and it's not clearing up so now we have to wait and see what the pee sample says.
Wow!...You are right Moufasa that you had a loud voice as you do now...Your mom has never forgotten how wonderful you are.....Now, we need you to watch over Midnight. She is having a difficult time and you are her guardian as Ben is mine.
Now on your special day....let's send Midnight some special purrs from the Bridge.
Concats on your Diary Pick! Glad you aren't being such a poopyhead! Purrs for Midnight and for your family as you remember Moufasa with extra special love today.
Congratulations again wow the diary lady really does like you. Good to hear you are treating your moma to some luvin, and Midngiht feels better that is pawsome news.
Moufasa was a one of a kind kitty and so handsome too :) He did have quite a voice.
Moufasa sure reminded meowmy of her kitties...past and purrsent!
He was a kitty who spoke his mind, MOL!
Concats to you, Finney on yet another DDP!
It is a good thing you shook off all that poop from your head...
Here is the promised pic/memento:
Hope your 'unpoopoohead' continues!
We are still purring fur Midnight, too.
Pipo & Minko
What a pawsome tribute to Moufasa. And keep on being a non-doodyhead!
Lovely tribute for Moufasa! Purring for Midnight!
dood...well itz noe wunder ewe haz been a poopy head if yur mom iz puttin farts in yur ears...stand ta reezon....go mess up de drapes buddy !!!
Happy diary pick Finnegan! It was sweet of you to remember Moufasa and I loved reading about a great kitty in such a nice tribute. He is so sweetly eager for his treat in the video.
Are Moufasa and Midnight on Catster?
Is Midnight in the video too, the one that looks a bit like me? Or is she Lacey?
I'm glad you are back to normal with Mom too!
Love Ginger xo
Ginger that's Midnight in the video, isn't she cute? She is the sweetest kitty but when Mouffey would bug her she's wop him no problem! She can definitely stand up for herself. I tried to answer everyone here last night and got the dreaded error 3!!!!! No Ginger they aren't on Catster. Mom thought about it but hardly has the time to keep up my page, Lacey and Alex's too. So it would be tough. Plus we could not even guess at when they were born, we only have an estimate on their ages and stuff.
Tabbies...putting farts in my ears? HUH? MOL!!! I must have said something for you to think that but I can't remember now. That would be furry gross. Wasn't Mouffey funny the way he talked? He could say lots of words.
We are purring so hard for Midnight. Poor baby...
The video of Moufasa was so cute. What a beautiful boy.
He seemed so sweet.
Hi Biggles! He was, he was a big gooney boy and luv bug. Tomorrow we should get Midnight's urine sample results, mom brought it in today. Please continue purring. We don't know what's going on, she had a lot of blood in her urine for days, even yesterday. But it's hardly there today. We're wondering if she passed a stone. She's been playing and eating like a wild child!
Hi Finney and Mom.. we are so sorry we have not been to active here lately. Its been so busy here with work and all. I have missed so much :( Im glad that Finney is starting to warm up to you again, silly kitty!! We hope that Midnight feels better soon. ((((hugs)))
Shadow, Wilson & mum :)
Thinkin' of you as a loss of a kitty never ends and we always remember them. Purrin' for Midnight and so happy to hear you are feelin' better :)
Thank you Platelicker and Shadow. We should get the results today of Midnight's urine sample. Cross your paws it's not something serious.
