Well, momma figured it out. Like a flash of lightning, a light bulb going off over a dim head! She remembered that during that nasty Irene storm, she lifted some sandbags to put around the back door in the driveway so it didn't get flooded. Sigh. Mom knew she strained herself. There was no doubt about that. But she thought she was okay. Apparently not!
But her mattress DID in fact carry on the pain and make it worse. Matter of fact, it's making it harder for her to heal. So she's going to try like heck when she gets paid to just buy lots of pasta, pizzas & raman noodles for awhile and cave in to buy that mattress. She can't take it anymore, this was the last straw.
She is GAAARRRRROOUUUCCHYYYYY! Whhoeey! MOL. Course if Finney and Lacey would stop bothering her when she's trying to sleep, that might help things. Now BOTH of them are always pounding on her bedroom door, or meowling super loud (Lacey big mouth), or whatever it takes. Jeez these two can be a handful!
So that's the scoop with the poop. Errr, back. MOL. Hey! Thanks everyone for celebrating my DDP with me. Please, no gifties okay? We really don't need them. We're hardly able to keep up with everyone else's DDPs so just pop in and say hi here in my diary and that will be more than enough.
Still no word about that kitty Ebony. I promise to keep you all posted and let you know when I hear something. Many kitties coming to the bridge again lately and now we have another case on our website, Bumbly, that is beyond saving. She's got lymphoma and her WBC is up to 70,000. She lost 7 ounces in 4 days. This will hurt mom just as much as when our friend Maggie passed because Bumbly is our very good friend Dr. Barb's kitty.
Dr. Barb is like a godsend to us. She's a human doc but has 8 kitties all with bad health problems. She's well versed in vet medicine as well but has VERY good vet docs for her kitties. She helps mom more than we could ever tell you in so many ways. She helps with our website big time as a consultant and writing certain medical stuff. But she is always there for mom as a friend and always so giving. This pains mom so much to know this about sweet little Bumbly, Barb is a mess.
And no, she is not on Catster either. But she's on my site in the Living with IBD section; for now. http://ibdkitties.net/BumblyA.html. Please purr for her if you can. She really needs it. That's what I want for today, for being a DDP. I wish for everyone to purr for my beautiful jet black velvet friend Bumbly.
Concats on being a diary pick! We will certainly purr for Bumbly and your Mom and Dr. Barb too.

Thank you furry much Nellie!
Congrats to you for being a DDP
...and yes we are purring at full throttle for Bumbly...what a cute name that is!
Minko said it is fun to share his DP with you, Alex...as well as the other furs there.
Pipo & Minko
We are sending so many purrrrs to you and your furrriends furmily! We know how important it is to have good furriends and loving wishes all around! Dang Irene!!! What a troublemaker!
Hugs and Purrrrs!
Thank you Kitty P. Minko! Happy DDP to you as well! Thank you both for the lovely picture.
Dr. Barb just said the saddest thing to mommy and it reminded her so much of me. She said that right now Bumbly looks so shiny and her fur is so soft and luxurious that it doesn't make sense that soon she'll be gone.
That brought it all back for mom because that's exactly how I was even the day I died. Even my vet had just seen me two days before and ran her fingers through my fur and said how soft I was. sigh.
oh that's so sad-Mommy knows what you mean...she was petting my tummy last night and remembered how soft Indy's was, and found a little bit of his fur when she was organizing (Oh Ceiling cat we need it MOL!)..our bookcase fell and so she got tha new ones, and under tha old one was all his fur from trying ta reach all the toys that went under there and it was still all soft, even though it was little bits and pieces
Oh that stinks Kitty P. Momma didn't know at the time I passed that you could take swatches of our fur or paw prints. Mom had JUST vacuumed the house the night before I died so there was nothing left for fur to be found in the house. The day after I died mom opened the vacuum bag and sat in a pile of dirt and dust on the kitchen floor frantically looking for pieces of my fur. I kept yelling "momma stop it I'm not in there!" She couldn't hear me. It was awful.
Yea, Alex Angel on yur DDP!
I wish your Mommy well Alex & hope she'll get a noo mattress!
Purring for Bumbly & praying for his Mama Dr.Barb.
Luvvs & gentle huggs,
Looky heyah a litta speshill sumtin fur Alex Angel,
Buttafly on Buttacup
Concats on your DDP!!
We are purring extra hard for Mom, Bumbly, and Dr Barb.
Our family knows how difficult it is to have a kitty with cancer. Our hearts to out to Dr. Barb.
We hope that Ebony finds a wonderful home. We were thinking of him yesterday. It is unfortunate that his unconditional love couldn't give his Mom comfort at a difficult time.
We know how important our love is to our Mom and Dad and can't understand how some people just don't feel the same.
Ooooh Kally Kat that's BEAUTIFUL! Thank you! Thank you both, Kally and Biggles. Poor Barb. She's usually so together. But she loves her kitties so much it's killing her. If there's one word in this world we hate so furry much, it's cancer!
I know Biggles, we can't understand it either.
Sad stuff that Bumbly is so sick...and yup, it brings back memories fur meowmy, too...as she had a couple of sick kitties in the past, though not with Cancer...they let her have that one...but now she is a 5 year survivor, PTL!
Kally Kat sent such a purrty Butterfly!
...now meowmy has to go and do catretarial work for Minko...MOL!
Whoa! Tell your meowmy congrats on surviving the beast for 5 years! Many more wonderful and completely healthy years to her. Mommy had a sweet and beautiful doggy named Taffy that died at five years old of cancer.
Thanks Alex...we will!
Sorry about Taffy, that is so young:(
Maybe your mom can find a super good deal on a new mattress. Purrs for that and for your mommy's back! We are also purring for dear little Bumbly. Tell Dr. Barb that some Casters are thinking of her and Bumbly. So much loss and sadness....
Hope you had fun being a DDP!
Thanks Gumpy I will. Well mommy already found a good deal but it's still $300! That's a lot of money when you have none. But it's a really good mattress with a nice comfy cushion top. Ooooh, she's feeling all warm and fuzzy just thinking about it!
$300 is pretty good for a mattress (so I've been told). Finney and Lacey might have to eat some Fancy Feast for a while (Jezebel does great with FF, you know ;) ). Your mom can also get a cushy pad thing to put on top. It sounds like she really needs that new mattress! Cushy cush cush sounds nice!
Congrats on the DDP! Hope y'all can find a nice mattress.
It really is good! Mattresses are expensive! And guess what, they are eating the grain free FF right now along with Soulistic and some Petguard. So mom's food bill has come down a lot! But very little insurance and no money equal lots of bills. Thanks Jezzy!
ya know, I LOVES the Soulistic food and it's like mostly all the wet foods I likes ta eat...Mommy's gotten some other kinds and Harrison seems ta likes the Nature's Variety wet stuffs, but me, I thik it's stinky and I wants my gravy with fishies or chikins in my Soulistic! Purrrrs you get the mattress! Mommy's is soooooooo old-like half her age, and so that's old, she hopes maybe santa grandpaw will get her a new bed fur christmassy and bday!
What a beautiful girl Bumbly is. I am very sad for her mom. Please tell her we are purring for Bumbly.
