Hi everyone, we had to think hard about which one us should put this in their diary. Alex usually does because she's the one who suffered so much with these diseases and lost her battle and as you know, she's the warrior of helping other kitties now. But Gumpy is very special to me and even though Finney, Alex and myself all love him equally, he's one of my tuxie bestest furriends and I need very much to send him as many purrs and purrayers as possible right now.
Gump is diabetic, he's been doing very well for a long, long time. But recently he developed pancreatitis and unfortunately this is a very painful and scary condition as it flares up out of no where and for no good reason. It can lead to a lot of complications as the pancreas is a tricky and hard to deal with organ.
He's not doing well right now, he's not eating, he's sleeping a lot and he's vomiting and has bad diarrhea. Not like him at all. He's seeing an internal medicine specialist vet on Monday and we really need to purr that they figure out exactly what's happening and are able to help him. Please send giant purrs and purrayers for our wonderful and handsome friend Gump. My momma is praying too.
Gumpy! Help is on the way! Open your paws and let yourself feel the hugs and kisses from all of us. We love you so very, very much!
Luv Lacey and family

Guess what Meowies! I'm Cat of the Month on Meowing out Loud! Which is purrfect for me really because that's all I ever do! MOL! What an honor and so very nice of all my furriends there.
It's still cold here and we're still sick of it. As I'm sure everyone is. Mom said her skin is itchy and she's sick of wearing 3 layers of clothes! She's had a hard time sitting at the compuper lately and trying to concentrate to work on our website. She gets lots of headaches and right now her sinuses are KILLING her. I don't know why those sinus things would want to hurt my momma but they better cut it out or I'm going to meow even louder! That should make my mommy feel better...NOT! MOL!
Oh Jeez! I almost forgot to talk about the neat Valentine I got from Gentleman Jack. Oooh boy is he a handsome boycat! Finney got a little jealous but I live with him so it's no biggy. Anyways, thank you handsome Jack! I love my valentine!
In other news, you know how we just lost our cousin kitty Moufasa in early December? Well at first his sisfur Midnight was having a grand old time, enjoying her freedom from all the bugging her he used to do. Not anymore. She's very lonely, she's not eating, losing weight and doesn't seem to care anymore. My momma is trying everything she can think of. She's giving her an appetite stimulant pill and trying hard to get her to eat. It's breaking momma's heart because she's still very sad about Mouffey. He was a real character and was super funny and talkative. Sigh. Seems momma's heart is always breaking. I don't know how it stays together sometimes. Hopefully it's me and Finney keeping it glued.
We've been cuddling with her at night on her warm bed with the electric blanky on. Nice and cozy. She loves that. She stares at us and tells us how cauuutttte we are. We flip over on our backs and let her rub our bewwies. It's all we can do for her really.
Please purr for Midnight, mom is trying her hardest to help her and grammy and grampy adore her. Thanks everyfur! Hope you have a pawsome day.

Hurray! Egypt is free after all of this chaos and turmoil. What brave people to keep banding together and not give up for their rights to a free and democratic country! That's pawsome. Check out my new song by Kool & the Gang on my page! Sing along with us and celebrate!
In other news, guess what! I'm one happy girl because last night my wonderful friend and the most handsome kitty Gump said he would be my valentine. I just love Gumpy for so many reasons and I don't mind at all that he's an older man. In fact, it makes him distinguished and wise. I like that in a kitty man. He's doing a lot better these days with his pancreatitis and we will continue to purr loud for him because he deserves to be happy, healthy and live for a long time to come! So that's my other celebration, Gumpy is my valentine!!!! Whoo hoo! I'm so excited.
It's still cold here, quite sick of that. Spring cannot come soon enough. Mom can't wait to get back out into her garden and we can't wait until the windows are open and we can chatter at the birds again.
My cousin kitty Midnight was sick yesterday and scared everybody. She was bleeding from her bladder and her momma had to come home and take her to the vet. They thought it was thyroid disease but the vet just called and said it's a bad infection with a high WBC count. Her momma will pick up some medicine for her later today and for now she's on a bland diet and feeling a little better. She's laying on the windowsill in the sun next to grammy and grampy. Mom keeps going down to do laundry and stops to give her a ton of kisses each time and tell her how much she loves her.
Oh my momma, loves us kitties all so much. After losing Middy's brofur in December that was scary. Mom still misses him very, very much and thinks about him all the time. She was quite upset yesterday to think that Middy might have something really bad. But this is the second time in 2 months and she lost a full pound in that time! So many purrs for Midnight would be very much appreciated if you all can spare them. She had Clavamox last time and it didn't do a darned thing for her. I hope she gets better medicine this time. That one made her even more sick!
Thanks everyfur and we hope you all have a great weekend!
Luv and kisses to my sweet Gumpy!

Hi everybody, this is little Cleo. Please go and visit her and her momma. This poor little tiny angel was sent to the bridge today because of FIP. Ugh, my momma can hardly stand to think about it, our eyes are both leaking. Her poor mom doesn't have many friends yet, she was very new. Please rally like we know you guys ALWAYS do and go and give her some love and support. She's devastated!
Thanks you guys
We love you all dearly

Hi everyone! Can you please purr hard for our furriends in Mexico? Little Jerry and his sisfur Princess, and their family. My momma is very good friends with their momma, Diana. And things are horrible in the city where they live in Monterrey. That used to be a safe place to be with all this drug violence and killings going on but not anymore. They're scared for their lives. They don't have money to leave Mexico but may have to flee. Diana hears gunshots right outside of her house every day and they have a little boy named Alef. She's scared for him, for all of them. Here's a first hand news report on how bad it is there:
Diana is a wonderful kitty momma and rescued little Jerry off the street last year. He's thriving and alive because of her. She was rescuing a friend he had made outside too this past winter but that poor kitty got hit by a car and didn't make it. Diana was very upset, she loves animals. I'll try and get a picture of little Jerry up on my page. He's SOOOO cute! Two different colored eyes.
Anyways, I was thinking since Finney did that purring for peace diary a little while ago we could do one special for our furriends there. we'd really appreciate it. Thank you in advance. My momma is furry worried.
Luv you all, Lacey

I cannot tell you what a shock this is to hear that Hazel Lucy has gone to the bridge. My feels like she's in a nightmare with so many sick kitties and ones crossing lately but this, THIS is too much. We don't even know what to say. When we came to Catster Hazel was one of our first friends. It took awhile for us to get to know each other but we fell in love with her and her mommy very quickly. We will ALWAYS be there for her mom and we know that Hazel will make the utmost wonderful and special angel kitty that ever existed. Words fail me, they really do.
I just know that everyone's diary today will be paying homage to that special girl, and rightfully so. A pillar of strength, concern for everyone else, love and support, FUN...OMC how much fun she is! Hazel made the word poopies into a complete new language here for us!
It's just unimaginable that this is happening and we hope that her journey was smooth and beautiful. She deserves nothing less. She is the Queen of Catster and now she's the queen of heaven. Love you Hazel Lucy! Our hearts are breaking. We love you and your momma very much. Thank you for always being here for us, for helping us to spread the word about IBD and helping other kitties. We'll see you when you're ready to come back with your giant, beautiful wings.
Pray for her momma, she's gonna need it. And she's gonna need us.

All you other kitties will sympathize with this one. Yesterday my mommy's friend came over and usually they just do some repair stuff around the house or go out somewhere. See he's mommy's ex-boyfriend of 8 years but they are still the bestest of friends and he lives across the street. He keeps his motorcycle in our garage for the winter and in return he snowblows the driveway and stuff for grampy.
Anyways! Once in awhile he comes over and they both do something we HATE. They steal our toenails! He holds me on his lap and well, it's not all that bad actually. He gives me lots of kissies and mommy is super careful when cutting my nails. She kisses each foot after she's done and me and Finney get treats after. I'm better about it than Finney is. He goes running into his tower and hides. Mom used to trick him with treats to come out but that doesn't work anymore. So she doesn't fool around, she just goes in there and says "come on out big boy, let's go". MOL. She just drags him out of there and says "oh my big baby boy!" and kisses him. Don't worry, she doesn't hurt him when she does that, she's very gentle.
He's becoming such a wimp. Although he's always the first one down the stairs to go and visit with grampy and grammy. I guess we both have our separate things that make us nervous. Not too much right now, mom says she hopes as we get older we don't become nervous nellies. I know Nelly! She's a pawsome friend, she doesn't look nervous to me. Nelly are you nervous? So mom said our nails need to be cut because we're always gouging her. Every night when I get on top of her back and give her massagees I stab her and she says pretty soon when she drinks water, it will all come leaking out everywhere, MOL!
And as much as I hate having my nails trimmed, I like to see them go flinging across the room, MOL. I'm like "what was that! let me get it, let me down!" MOL! It's the little things that amuse me. Hey! spring is here! Whoo hooo! We're gonna have to change our backgrounds again. Mom's been doing spring cleaning the last couple of days. Lots more to come she said. Yipee! NOT! The great part is that we have the windows open and the birdies are coming back in the yard. Mom says as soon as the rest of the filthy snow in the yard melts, she'll go clean up the area and put the bird bath back out there. THEN watch dem birdies come flying back over here! That always does it. Oh and the windchimes we always hang at the top of our stairway. They love that too.
I hope you're all having a beautiful spring day and not getting your toenails cut! She's also trying to brush our toofies now. Thanks a lot Leo! This is all your fault for having such nice pearly white toofies! That is just not helping the rest of us. Sheesh!

It's funny because mom was already working on this video when Zach put up his diaries about us all doing professional wrestling. This really fits perfect. Take a look on my profile page at the first video called take your best shot. Notice how I have a great right hook, he hee, I give it to Finney really good in the head a couple of times. He doesn't mind, he asks for it.
Right now he smells like poop! He's having problems dropping all of his poop out of his bum, STILL. Mom took out the garbage, cleaned our box and she still couldn't figure out what that awful smell was. He'd left her a big old chocolate ball in the corner of the kitchen where the door opens. So it was in back of the door where she couldn't see it. PPPEEEEWWWWWW!!! It could have sat there all day. Good thing it's not summer. Blech! Anyways, he's still got some stuck to all that floof and mommy is like "NOT AGAIN FINNEY!!!" He won't let her clean it without growling at her and fussing. Sheesh! Big baby.
We figured out why Finney didn't get any DOTD for his pawty. He's already been EVERYTHING! The only thing left for us is COTW for both myself and Alex (HINT HINT HINT)!!! We've both been COTD and DOTD already. Hmmm, no more awards after that. That's no fun darn it. MOL. Oh well! He still holds the record for most posts ever in one diary (we think anyways). Maybe we can make up a little award for that or something. And for especially funny diaries and pics and stuff. OOOHHH!! Zach's picture of him in all those bandages qualifies for that one. What a drama queen! MOL!
Mom was looking back at my diary entries to see when we'd been awarded what and this one was pretty funny if you get a chance to read it: Diary Girl. It's cold and gloomy here again today. Gosh, what happened to all that spring that sprung? And a quick update on our cousin Midnight, she's been eating like a hog since last week. Mom was sitting on the rocking chair and Midnight was resting on her lap. Mom decided to try some Reiki just for the heck of it at that point, she was skin and bones. And we don't really know if that's what did it but the next day it was like a light switch that turned on. She just started hoovering food all day and hasn't stopped! KNOCK ON MAJOR WOOD NOT TO JINX THIS!!! She's gaining her weight back and ASKING for food. Sigh. It's exhausting all these ups and downs.
Mom says she doesn't care how it happened as long as she's eating. Thought you'd all like some good news for a change. So sad around here all the time lately. Oh if you get a chance too, go and check out Finney's new background on his page, it's pretty cool!
Anyways! Can't wait to see Zachy's next wrestling show. Maybe he can put a link to my video to go with it! How bout it Zachy? I'm showing Zoe some new moves too. Get 'em Zoe! Get 'em!

Ugh, in the words of Nancy Kerigan, WWWWWHHHHHYYYYYYY!!!!!????? MOL! I cannot believe we're getting 6-12 inches of snow on Friday. I am NOT kidding! We couldn't be sicker of this stuff and mom went out and cleaned up some more of her garden today. Whenever she does that the neighbors stop in their cars and tell her, "now I KNOW it's spring because Lisa is in her garden, that's my sign". People walking their dogs and kids in the neighborhood always make a point of walking by our house, stopping and smelling the flowers.
We have one really naughty man that mommy can't catch in the act though. He's so cheap, instead of buying his girlfriend flowers, he walks the neighborhood with a pair of scissors and cuts other people's including my mommy's. Oh boy that makes her really mad. He cuts her tulips every year and our neighbor caught him once and she yelled at him. He said he was cutting them for his girlfriend. Can you believe that guy? Mom said she wants to catch him, follow him and tell his girlfriend on him. Heh heh. Jerk.
Because so many people are still getting cold, rain and snow we thought it would be nice for us to publish links to mommy's google albums where she has pictures of her gardens from every season there. There's also some pictures of us that a lot of you haven't seen before. There are many different albums in each but for some stupid reason when she updated her Picasa program, they put them in two different places and now she's stuck. So we're putting the links for both sites. Feel free to browse everyone and enjoy some spring and summer colors! When you go on the page the link takes you to, each picture that has a little green nodule underneath is actually a separate album. We have TONS of pictures in each of those.

Oh my goodness, we need everyone's help to figure out what's wrong with my mommy. Yesterday afternoon she went out and didn't come back for a furry long time. When she finally did come back late at night she was acting really strange! She said she's been turned into a toadie and started talking about weird stuff.
While getting our food and changing into her pj's she was dancing around and we thought she would "fall down" but she had her "eyes open wide" so she was okay. Then as we were eating, she went into the other room to shut the blinds and started "crowing"! Is she a toad or a bird? What the heck momma! "All I want" is to know what's going on here, I have nothing but "good intentions" about it but this seems like a "crazy life" if you ask me.
Then she picked me up and said, Lacey mommy needs to have some fun and even though I love you furry much "I will not take these things for granted" because when I stay home here and take care of everyone in the house "something's always wrong". If you're lonely when I'm gone I can ask Alex to visit and "fly from heaven" to see you.
Well okay momma but "whatever I fear" is that you're going a little bit cuckoo and maybe you taking that "walk on the ocean" didn't help anything. It sent your mind "way away" and you need to "come back down" to earth.
Oh I'm furry worried about mommy, she was doing lot of weird moves and stuff and yes, it was fun and funny to watch but is she going to start eating bugs now? That's me and Finney's job! I don't understand this, she doesn't have any warts that I can see and she hasn't turned green since the last time she got a stomach flu.
Can any of you furs help us figure out what's going on here? I hope she's better by tomorrow, it's our 1 year catsterversary! Can you beweive it? One whole year! I hope we don't have to bring momma to the loony bin, but she insists that she's fine. I don't think so. Please help us figure out this dilemma!
"P.S." there are a lot of clues here so someone should be able to help us figure this whole thing out.
