I was coming to thank everyone for the extraordinary outpouring of love and support.
An email popped in. A notification from catster.
My Ollie is COTW!
I will admit to hoping that all my babies would be chosen but having had two already (Wally and Alfie) I really didn't think it would happen. That it's happening now~it's bittersweet.
It's difficult for me to feel joy. And I simply cannot channel Ollie.
Thank you, HQ for honoring my beloved boy.
Today I wanted to post a beautiful poem that Orange Ruffy wrote for my Ollie
He's a sure charmer
Sure born to steal
To dance upon magick
To show us what's real
A feline named Ollie
With tangerine coat
A lively little fellow
Who'd sure get my vote
He's a thief of heart
You know it's so true
Ollie's the man
He's orange true blue
He's got a stout heart
That will never give out
Just beats somewhere else now
I know without doubt
Ollie's mom sure loves him,
She needs our purrs
And lots of kitty kisses
From all us furs
For Ollie in midleap
Left his body behind
He leaped light fanstastic
Onwward to find
Perhaps another miracle for a kitty friend here
Ollie knew what he was doing-though for us it isnt' clear
And his mom needs love, for she's missing him so,
Hurting as she wasn't ready, no, for him to go
But Ollie, surely you know, my bright orange friend
That you will be back soon, for it's not 'the end'
Can you give a shout out, wait a minute there
Come on now little man, you know it's not fair!
And I watched as my Alex, Guardian at Rainbow Bridge
Came carrying our Ollie, by scruff cross the Ridge
and deposited him just outside the window sill
Said 'here he is Ruffy, say what you will!'
So I said 'Hey, now Ollie, whats this about?
Why'd you dash off without a shout out?
Your mom is so sad, she's grieving for you
It's not fair now Ollie, what you're putting her through.
And Ollie sat up and glanced at Alex there
'I dodn't mean to hurt her, I love her-I care!
I love my Mom, we are soul mates you know-
But you know Ruffy-when we're called-we go!
I am a little guy-not too soul wise
But I know Mom loves me, and my heart can't lie
I heard the call-of the Source to me
And my heart just took wing, Ruffy...I'm Free!'
Then he stood up on his hinds and he touched noses to me
'Tell my mom Ruffy, it's with her I'll be...
I'll return before she knows it-with a ticker that's good
I promise you Ruffy-it's understood.
I purred a deep rumble, he shimmered and leapt
Straight up in the air to where the stars still slept
As the sun rose on the horizon he came back to stand
A small orange tabby with many a plan
Tell Mom I love her-I'll tell her too
For here now I'm whole now, I don't want her blue
She's my best buddy, a Mom still to me
Forever my soul mate, forever to be
A Mom, who understands we have more than nine lives
Tell her I'm not far, but I know she'll realize
And Alex swatted me with her soft angel wing
It's time we get back, I'll take care of things
Just tell me, Ruffy, this before we go...
Can I let him send magick, for his mom, you know?
And I looked up at the sky, turning indigo to blue
Said 'Ollie you're magick and it's up to you.'
And he backed up and tensed mucles, leapt straight up again
Called back "I'm on it, Ruffy-thanks for being a friend'
Ollies Mom, be comforted-I understand your grief
It's hard when you have been touched and chosen by a Thief
But I have this feeling, I sense it with my all
That sooner than later....you'll recognize that call.
Ollie my friend, I purr for your mom
Sending her kindess, telling her 'be strong'
We know shes a miracle, and chosen still by you
That Thief of Hearts will return anew.
Thank you so much.
I can't stop weeping.

791 days. That's all the time I was given with my precious Ollie.
I have been struggling for weeks to let you know.
My Ollie is dead.
How can it be? He had just turned 2 years old!
I can see the shock on your faces. I can see tears fill your eyes. I didn't want to be the cause unhappiness here.
I feel I used up my share a long time ago.
So I was just going to disappear.
But I couldn't do that either.
You are family. I have grown to love you and your kits as if you were my own family and your kits my own;
I almost can't do this.....
If you love my Ollie would you do one thing for us, please?
Don't give him any candles, don't give him angel stars. Most of all no wings.
I can't bear to picture him with wings!!!
Just a little red heart for my little thief of hearts.
He stole mine and took it with him.
And I am so broken.
Milo and TB are also struggling as is my dad.
I promise I will be back soon to tell you more about what happened.
Please love us?
Forever Ollie's mommy, Eva

Two years ago today, mom and I found each other. She was not in a good place. My whole family was sad. Grandpa, Milo and Teddy all
missed Alfie. Mom had a hurt heart that only a kitten could help mend. So she came to the SPCA
Yes, she was looking for an orange boy, not because Alfie could be replaced but she thinks orange kitties are special.
I had just arrived at the SPCA that morning. I was not a happy camper. I had never been in a cage before. My two sisters were with me
and they were so scared. I said to them, watch me get out of here.
When I heard the voice of the lady who would be my momma in five minutes or so~ my kitty ESP kicked in.
She was the one! I just knew it. So I climbed the cage door and started yelling. Everyone else was very quiet so naturally mom looked at
who was making the noise. I heard her say to her friend, Oh look, I see orange! The closer she came the more excited I got.
Please, oh please get me out of here. Before I knew it the door was opened and I flew into the arms of my momma to be. I stopped screaming
and started purring. She tried to look at my face but I clung on. I was worried she wanted to put me down. She laughed and managed to
extricate my kitten claws from her clothes. We were face to face. She smiled and said hello little guy! Are you mine? And she kissed the
tip of my pink nose. I licked hers.Faster than you could say MEOW~ We had a deal. We would love each other for the rest of our days!
More happy mews:
Do you guys remember Wild Child
the sweet kitty from Best Friends, mom sponsored last December to honor our Wally?
She got an email last night from Best Friends. Wild Child is happy in her new forever home in Arizona!
You may have notice the we are away sign beside our names, mom had been furry sick and she needs time to recuperate.
My bros and I are taking care of her. Don't worry about us, OK?
Grandpa is still doing better than expected. So that is also happy mews.
We love you~
Ollie and momma

Hi my lovely pals!
So my figurine has been finally photographed.
For some reason this picture would not load.
So here is
I think Tigg's dad did a magnificent job!
Everyone but everyone should have one of these.
We love all the details, the mask is removable. My black sack is overflowing with stolen jewellery!
The heart on my other arm represents my mom's heart.
She happily gave it to me but I prefer to steal it. MOL
Thanks my lovely Dia for making this a birthday pressie.
Love and orange smooches,

Hi my lovely friends,
I am still in catching up mode. Getting a new computer set up is a lot of work. Getting used to Windows 7. (I had XP for a decade or so)
I am starting to love it though!
Honestly, I can't recall the last time I felt so serene!
I think the boyz are picking up the mellow vibes around here.
This morning as we all trooped into the bathroom, there was this precious moment, I wish I could have captured on video...or maybe not.
I was sitting...ahem.. on the throne; the boyz crowding around me.
Suddenly Ollie turned to Teddy, touched noses with him and gave him a huge headbutt; then he turned around and did the same to Milo.
All 3 were purring up a storm. Acoustics in the bathroom made it sound like I had at least a dozen kitties in there.
It was a lovely way to start the day even if it was 5:30 AM
As I write this the sun is shining; the boys are sunbathing, my dad is washing the breakfast dishes.
Thank you for making it possible for me to write this!
I wish you all a sweet Easter or a happy Passover~whichever you are celebrating. And happy spring!

Hello my lovely friends,
Things have been crazy without a computer but no more!
My family and I missed you all so much. We apologize for missing some of our friend's DDP honors, diary entries etc. We are going to do our best
to catch up.
I am thrilled to be a DDP today! Thanks for all the congrats. I really appreciate them.
The figurine from Tigger's dad came the other day! Mom laffed and laffed when she saw it. She says, it is crazy cute! Going to take pictures soon.
It ended up being a birthday gift from DiaThank you sweet girl of mine, I loves you.
My grandpa has been doing so well! Mom is not usually superstitious but she is almost afraid to have me mention it. I just know you guys will be happy for us!Every day he comes back to us a bit more.He was never diagnosed with Alzheimer's but his doctor was convinced that's what it was. The medication did help a lot for 2 years. But then around his birthday early February it just stopped working. His doctor has retired and it's impossible to find a new one.So mom just stopped the medication. Quite possibly it is the best thing she did. He started improving almost immediately and he is just doing better and better.Can you believe it?
He has always been an amazing man health wise but this is a miracle!
And then last Wednesday Alfie got a p-mail from his pal
Miko He wrote, mom should be on the lookout for a gift!
He enclosed this sweet card
The following friends and their families
got together and bought mom a laptop!!!
As you can imagine Mom is speechless, overwhelmed with love and gratitude!
She cried happy tears. She said to me, how am I going to thank all these lovely families?
So I meowed, I will do it!
My brothers and I are sending you all giant headbonks,whisker kisses mega purrs of thanks!
You guys rock! Thank you for making our mom so happy.
Everyday that we are here, it is because of you. We will try to show you our gratitude
Ollie and co

Hi All my lovely furry pals!
You are truly the best pals a dude can have!
I want to thank you for having a party in my honor even though the nasty mean puters would not let us be here!
The party was so much fun! I laffed and laffed!
The gifts you brought to the party and for my page.I hope I can thank you all before my next birthday rolls around!
Guess what? Gump or as I call him, Unkie G is an invisible DDP! Yep, his mom got a notification from HQ but he is not online.
When are you going to fix that HQ?
Please visit his page and read his award winning diary. He needs our purrs!
Congrats Unkie G!Mom will make a memento as soon as I release her from her typing duties.
We are getting a new computer. Well, the tower, the processor? Dell is having a sale in Canada, they call it March Madness! Free ship too!
It will be here in about 10 days!
This one is srsly nutso like the weather, eh?
Never mind spring! It is summer here. Peoples are wearing t-shirts and shorts. Yesterday they were calling for snow for Saturday but that's now changed. Although it is going to cold and then hot again and then cold again. MOL
Guess what else?!
Remember last year when Mom posted on FANCY FEAST's Facebook page about Jezebel?
Well not only did she get the most awesome gifts for last Christmas, now my mom got an amazing gift too~she found an old friend!!
Last week, she got a notification that someone had posted a comment on the FF page (where she wrote about Jezebel)
It was from her very first friend in this life! They played together in the park~ in the sandbox! Went to the same kindergarten and the first 4 years of school. They were BFF! Then mom came to Canada and she went to Australia. Mom did see her again when she was in her teens and she too lived in Australia for a year.
But as it sometimes happens in life, they lost touch.
Mom often thought of her and missed her. There is nobody in mom's life these days who knew her as a child; nobody who loved and knew her mom... and this made her so sad.
So now Elizabeth is back in her life. All because she saw mom's post
to FF! Mom has a picture of my grandma on her Facebook page and Liz
left the sweetest comment. See, Liz loved my grandma too. Everyone who knew her~did. Mom cried happy tears!
Has any fur heard from Sigmond (Siggy) lately?
We is worried about him. Please let us know if you have.
A shout out to Maedia, just cause I loves her!
I love you Dia!
Love and orange smooches,

Last night Snow tagged me to play the kittens are us game. I am to list 3 of my favorite kitten memories.
I still feel like a kitten and since today is
is my birthday I think going down memory lane is especially fun!
Thanks for thinking of me,Snow!
I remember the first time I heard my mom's voice! I haven't even met her. But I knew she was supposed to be my mom. I knew it.
I had just gotten to the SPCA that morning with my 2 sisters. Life had been pretty good. We had been fostered in a nice home. But this being in a cage and all the yucky noise and smells.
I knew I needed to get out of there ASAP
My sisters were so scared. They were sitting in the litterbox at the back of the cage, just shaking.
I knew that was not the way to get out of there!
So when I heard this friendly voice, I knew I had to get her attention. I wanted her to be my mom!
So I climbed the cage door, and started YELLING!
The lady who would fall in love with me in two seconds.....said, Oh look at that little orange ball
of fur! And she laughed. And came over. I got even more excited and YELLEd even louder.
So the door was opened and I attached myself to this lady wo was just radiating LOVE!
She wanted to see my face, but I just wanted to stay attached. NO! NO! NO! don't put me down.
So she held me some more. I didnt know know it then but I had her at the first MEOW!
I have lots of lovely memories but that one will always be the best...
I have a great life, I make my mom laugh a lot. She doesn't mind when I am naughty. (She says I have SPIRIT! MOL) We have lots of yummy noms, and toys! Mom plays with us everyday, My favorite is
Da Bird! I love my brothers too! They are the best brothers a guy could ever wish for!
My grandpa adores me too. (Thanks to everyone who has asked about him. It is some kind of a miracle cause he is doing great still! YAY!)
And here I am today, celebrating my 2nd birthday with all my wonderful catster friends.
Please drop by, we will do our best to show up as often as possible.
Have fun, I have lots of food and drink.
Zach is bringing music later.
I hope you will have fun helping me celebrate.
I love you guys!

............Tomorrow? Who knows.
See this is the nature of the beast.
One day it works purrfectly and then the next it plays dead.
That's why it's so frustrating.
Thank you for all your suggestions.
Everything has been considered~ I pawmise you.
Tomorrow the weather calls for sunshine.
Hopefully the sun will be shining in my heart too!
If I can play with you guys, I will be furry happy!
Purring for a happy day!
Love and smooches,

There will be no birthday party, well not in this virtual world.
My mom's computer is about done in and she can't put up with any more freezes and crashes.
I am really sad. I love it when we can hang out together. You guys are so much fun. I don't know when we will be back. These problems have been on and off for over a year. Two different tech people couldn't find what's wrong.
Mom can't afford a new one, probably not ever. The thing is, it functions for a while and nothing is wrong and then suddenly everything is wrong.
We hope this bad patch will end but if not......I don't know.
I am going to miss you like crazy. I hope you are going to miss me too.
Please forgive us for not being here to make the DDP memento which mom loves to do so much.
Have a wonderful St Patrick's Day!
Until we meet again.....
May the sun shine, all day long,
everything go right, and nothing wrong.
May those you love bring love back to you,
and may all the wishes you wish come true!
Love and orange smooches,
