Guess what. Mommy has HAD IT with my driving her balloonies at night. She can't get any sleep because she says I'm a big mouth, fidgety, pest of a girl. Sheesh! I can only say that I am at my best at night. MOL. A real night owl, er, kitty. She plays wiff us, she does! So she don't know why I do this. But I cry and whine and smash on her door until she thinks my paws will bleed (which they don't, I'm no dummy ya know). If she opens the door and lets me in, I am still not a good girl. While Finney is sleeping like a log on the bed with her I insist on knocking everything down that I can possibly find. I meow and whine the whole time I'm doing it and then I walk on mommy's head. All night long!!!
SO! Last night she'd really had it and went in the closet to get something. I thought it was a toy and she was gonna play wiff me at 4 in the morning! Then when she came out I saw this purple thing, I was kinda interested in it and then out of the blue she corners me and sticks it around my neck! What the heck mommy!!! Then just as fast as she came out and put that THING on me, she was back in her room and I was locked out. POOH! She said she didn't hear me at all and it was the bestest prezzie she ever got because now she's going to put it on me every night so she can get some sleep.
Funny, Finney doesn't do any of this. Nope! Now him and mommy are thick as thieves. All he ever wants to do is cuddle wiff her on the bed and give her facials. And no, she's not ignoring me. She gives me tons of kisses and plays wiff me, brushes me, etc. I don't know what the heck my problem is but I guess now I have to wear that stinky thing every night. I started doing this about a year ago and mommy can't figure out why but it makes her furry mad.
Why am I being aboosed!? WHY!!! Secret Santa I thought I loved you for making Finney feel better with that thing but now I am furry upset! I think I need a niptini. Anyone else?

Please purr hard for us, everyone in the house is sick right now. The oil tank is dirty and last night we lost heat and the fumes are really bad! We’re all sick from this. The guy is here now cleaning the oil tank and furnace filter. He’ll have to come back and take the furnace apart to clean it later when it’s warmer because it’ll take all day. But we’ve got all the windows open and everyone is nauseous, dizzy, almost throwing up, headaches you name it! Me and Finney are mostly okay because we're on the second floor of the house but mom, grammy, grampy and Midnight are not feeling well. The firemen already came last night and they don't have to go to the hospital but mom is so super sensitive to smells that it's really making her sick. We're worried about grammy and Midnight too. Mom had to go and open all the windows downstairs, grammy is really dizzy, she has a heart condition. Please purr that everyone feels better.
Wanna hear something funny? Mom is more mad because she started going to the gym yesterday and wanted to go today but she's not going to leave the house with everyone feeling like this right now. Mom was so cold last night it was 5 degrees outside. It wasn't near that bad here in the house but right now everyone is feeling so defeated. The water heater broke a few weeks ago, the plumber they were going to hire tried to rip them off for 3 times the amount! Mom was furious and told the guy off and reported him to the BBB. We have a new one now but now it's the oil tank, the furnace, mom's car won't pass inspection, she's just so fed up. We don't have money for all of this. Anyway, we weren't going to post anything but I told mom I wanted to. Please purr for us okay? :((

You’ll never believe what happened here Thursday night. You know my new neighbor next door? The one on the second floor that tried to smash his way into my driveway during that Oct blizzard? At 1:30 am he had a heart attack at the top of his stairs and fell all the way down to the porch. He fell so hard he smashed the door open and was unconscious. The whole street was crawling with fire trucks, cops, EMS, everything. He’s so bad they don’t know if he’ll make it. Isn’t that horrible? I have no idea if he has any family, I’ve never seen anyone go up there.
On the Midnight front, she's on Baytril now for her booboo pee pee. She has a bad bacteria infection so because the Clavamox didn't work we're trying this. Hopefully it works! Mom is giving her an all natural kidney product she used to give Moufasa and it's really helping a lot!!! The vet said it's okay to give both. Mom has to go to the store AGAIN today for Midnight and buy her some food because her own mother did NOT! Ugh. Mom is tired of all this running around. She's only doing it for Midnight, not for her sister. Mom is using all her gas and money to go back and forth to the vet and run all these errands. Midnight is worth it though.
Finney and I have been zooming and booming all over the house lately. Playing like crazy. He loves mommy again and she's trying hard not to poke him anywhere, MOL. Big baby. I think that's all that's new here really. That's enough! MOL. We just want to have fun and keep playing and cuddling wiff mom! It's cold now!!! I guess no more days in the 50s and 60s for awhile. Pooey! I miss the windows open.

Here's another new little friend who needs that Catster love and support! Gee there's a lot of these poor little ones lately! Meet Mutzi. She just got diagnosed with HCM, I think grade 3 and she's only 4. Her mom is terrified and is asking for some support. Please friend her, she's very nice and Mutzi is so pretty.
And if you haven't read Finney's newest update, written tonight, Midnight is going back to the vet tomorrow. She's bleeding again and she needs some tests. Mom is worried. Please continue purring for our sweet cousin. She's so lovable and so loved.

Hi everyone, cousin Midnight is fighting a UTI as a lot of you know and even though she's somewhat better she still has a ways to go. The problem is that she's hardly eating. Mom is going to have to syringe feed her tomorrow. She's getting fluids, B12, Clavamox, probiotics, etc. It's been since about last Thursday I think since this started. Because of her age, she's having a difficult time fighting the infection. Mom is a basket case and a bundle of nerves. She's running around doing her things and going up and down the stairs all day and night checking on Middy and giving her meds. We desperately need the Catster magical POTP and purrs for her. Mom can't do this alone and she's feeling really tired and crying a lot. It was last year on Dec. 14th that we lost Midnight's brofur Moufasa after mom cared for him full time for 2 years. Mom is afraid now that we're going down the same path and history will repeat itself. Mom just can't take anymore loss, there's been enough in our family this year. Anyways, please please please help us purr for Midnight? We know how powerful it is and WE BELIEVE! Thanks everyfur! We love you!

Hi everybody, thank you for the DDP! Can you do us a favor and purr for our cousin Midnight who lives downstairs with grammy and grampy? She's not feeling well at all. She's got a slight fever and a UTI. Mom is being a great nurse, she's syringe feeding her food, she's giving her sub q fluids and Clavamox. So we're hoping that by tonight's second dose of Clavamox she feels a little better. But the poor thing is peeing clear blood. She's prone to these so we've been through this before but it's been awhile. Mom is on it immediately and got meds from the vet so we just need purrs and POTPs now if you can!
Her fever seems a little better than it was even an hour ago so cross your paws please! Thank goodness mom has grammy here to help her. Grammy is a pawsome nurse and because Middy loves and trusts them all they can help her with all this stuff. It's warm here although the temp has gone down since last night.
At 1 am we have the windows open because it was 61 degrees and humid! We didn't mind actually it was nice. It's been like this for a few days now. All this warm weather is messing up mom's plants! She has daylillies popping up out of the ground and her lilac trees and other shrubs and trees all have BIG BUDS on them! They think it's spring. This'll mess them up bad. That happened a few years ago when we had a super warm winter. Oh well!
Thanks everyone, we'll keep you posted on cousin Midnight!

MOL! Don't you like my song? Well that's all I could come up with on short notice. Guess what? Mom's been working on a video tribute of me tonight. It's up on my page, please go and check it out. Thank you so much everyone for celebrating my pawsomest day of the year. The day my mommy went to the shelter and I found her. Yup, that's right, I found HER! Now I won't leave her be for 5 minutes. MOL. I can't help it! I LOVEEEEE you meowmy!!! She loves me too she just wants me to stop tripping her all the time, MOL. No can do momma. I'm trying to keep you on your toes. Or is that off your toes, I'm not really sure.
Anyway! Thanks everyone for being our friends and for loving our whole family so much. We are SOOOOO lucky to have all of you and I am the luckiest of all because I have a wonderful family and the bestest most pawsome furriends ever! Mommy has been giving us both lots of extra kisses lately. Mores o than usual. She says she's just grateful to have us. Enjoy the video!!
Well, mommy's been waiting about 20 minutes for the stupid video to be coded on my page already! If it's not ready to play when you check it, please check back to it later on. It usually doesn't take this long! Fleas again probably.

well, it was a furry crazy and sad day yesterday. Not only here on Catster but at home. Everything mommy has had to deal with in the last year just came pouring out of her like Niagara Falls and she couldn't stop crying all day! THEN she gets an email from Tigger's daddy saying that Tigger went with Alex to the bridge. Which made her cry even more. Alex says he was such a good boy and so brave. He didn't cry, although he was so sad to leave his family behind. Rest assured she is taking VERY good care of him and pretty soon he'll be as good as new and ready to assume his angel duties. BUT! she said he already started some of those duties yesterday.
On his way up the stairs of the kitty bridge that leads to the beautiful place where kitties roam and play all day, he was holding Alex's paw and looking around. "wow!!! It's so amazing and colorful up here. So bright! Good thing I'm not afraid of heights!" He said. He was looking around everywhere so quickly, didn't want to miss a thing, when he spotted a gray and white kitty, wandering around, so sad and purrty mad at himself for getting lost! Tigger slowed down and pulled on Alex's paw and said "hold on Auntie Alex, look!!! Look down there! Isn't that Linus?" Alex turned and said, "Tigger! GREAT EYE! We've been all looking for him for a furry long time and NO ONE could find him! You did it!"
So Tigger and Alex swooped down and found two kitties on their way up to the bridge at the same time, Jaffa and Grub. Alex said, "you guys want to come and help us? He's a handful and we need to make sure he does not get away!" "SURE" they said very gladly. So these 4 kitties swooped down and chased Linus like crazy glowing bugs and made him run so fast that he ran right into the yard of someone that his pawents were visiting! Alex said "okay guys, let's really get him over there, ramp it up! Turn on the meowzers and let's make sure he's spotted!" Oh that Linus was so mad. He couldn't figure out why these glowing tinkerbell type kitties so small they looked like bugs, were zooming in front of his face, his mouf, his ears. He kept swatting at them and thank goodness he missed! That's the last thing we need is to have 3 new angels get their buzzers beat up! MOL.
So Linus ran and ran and he was yelling and meowing "get off me you crazy cats! What do you think you're doing! Leave me alone!" Then he looked closely and said "Alex! Is that you? What in the world are you chasing me for?" Alex looked at him and said "because you crazy numbskull! LOOK!" Alex, Tigger, Grub and Jaffa all pointed at Linus's mommy and daddy and when he saw them he couldn't believe it! "OMC!" he yelled! "Thank you thank you! Oh Tigger buddy, I'm so sorry to see you like this. But you look grand! Very beautiful lights coming from you all. How lovely!" Tigger said, "thank you Linus, this is my first official angel act. You better get over there before they leave!" Then they all gave Linus angel hugs and watched as Linus raced towards his mommy and daddy yelling and meowing "HEY! I'M HERE! I'M HERE!!! DON'T LEAVE ME!"
"Ahhhhh," Alex said. "you all did so great. Look at that! Not even at the bridge yet and already you saved a kitty, one of your furriends!" Tigger gave Alex a hug and said he was so excited, he felt so good about what they'd done. Then he said "now let's go, I hear there's great catinis and trout samiches up there!" As they looked back and saw Linus being hugged and kissed excitedly by his family, they turned and knew this would be a furry wonderful Thanksgiving for this family.
Moral of the story: Don't wander off because you never know how many angel bugs are going to buzz you until you can't take it anymore! MOL!

Hi everyone, this will be a super short diary. I just wanted to add to my last diary about the study that's being done at UC Davis for IBD/lymphoma kitties. Even if you are a perfectly healthy kitty or have a completely different health condition, PAWLEASE give your vet the information so they can see if they have other cases that could apply! This is so furry important! And unfortunately there are MANY MANY cases of these diseases around. So please look at this page on our site again and pass the link and info onto your vet!
