October's Party
By: George Cooper

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came—
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.

The Chestnuts came in yellow,
The Oaks in crimson dressed;
The lovely Misses Maple
In scarlet looked their best;
All balanced to their partners,
And gaily fluttered by;
The sight was like a rainbow
New fallen from the sky.

Then, in the rustic hollow,
At hide-and-seek they played,
The party closed at sundown,
And everybody stayed.
Professor Wind played louder;
They flew along the ground;
And then the party ended
In jolly "hands around."

Update on Me!

I am really doing good. I am adjusting to getting around, and everyday it is a little easier. Dear friends of ours, The Fluffkins, sent Mom treats for me, to see if they might help my joints. That was so kind of them. I did try one of the treats, so Mom is going to keep offering it to me, in hopes that I will continue to eat it. She tried Zukes before, even breaking it up, and I ignored it. Hopefully this new one will help.

I am having some itchies. The doctor noticed it when he treated me before and made the comment that Calicoes are prone to allergies. Mom forgot to ask how that can be, since Calico is a coloration, not a breed. They were also discussing my joints and the inner ear or cerebral infection. Mom is going to ask the next time she speaks with him.

Dad says that my name should have been Cassidy, for Hop-a-Long Cassidy. Mom does not like it when he calls me that, but he does comment on how I have improved over what I was several weeks ago.
He was frustrated with me a couple of weekends ago. He is only home on the weekends, he drives a big truck. I decided that for that weekend I wanted to lay in front of the fridge. So everytime he wanted in there, he had to move me. Mom said I could be considered a Diet plan. She would think twice as to IF she wanted to make me move or not. I helped her save calories that way!! MOL

I know that it was the prayers of my Sweet friends that has helped me to improve and I am so thankful for your prayers. I still have a ways to go; and I believe that I will improve a lot more.

Love and Hugs,

Mom picked me up today. I was happy to see her and enjoyed my ride back home. After mom petted me, I took a bath while we drove home. Mom says I am the best traveler that she has or ever had of her fur babies.
Mom talked with Doc Kelly before they brought me out to her. The power was off in the office (probably from the windy rains we had earlier) or he would have shown Mom my x-rays. Upon review he believes that I do have inflammation around the cerebral area. It could be from an inner ear infection, or perhaps I had inflammation in the cerebral area earlier and still have some there. I am on prednisone for 5 days, then we will see how I am doing (head tilting).
They are also hoping that the medicine will help my elbow too, perhaps decrease some of the inflammation. With the prayers going up for me, I believe that I will feel better!!

Mom talked with the vet and he said that I did just fine and was awake shortly after the x-rays were finished. Right now he cannot tell why my head is tilting, he said it would take an MRI to really know and Mom would have to take me over 2 hours away for that.
He did say that my left-front arm elbow joint has severe arthritis. With it being in the joint, there is not much that can be done; but they are going to try medication. This is from the injury last year.
I am resting comfortably. Mom decided to not stop by since I will be home tomorrow. She feels that to stop by then leave me, may confuse me more, than if she waits and takes me home when she sees me in the morning.
Please continue to pray for me and my arthritis. We want to see old "ART" leave me and my joint to feel better soon.

Thank you for keeping me in prayers. Mom and I truly feel blessed to have praying friends.



Requesting Prayers again for Hashbrown

Today I dropped Hashbrown off at our Vets' to have her x-rayed again. She had been doing better, but was not back to where she was prior to the inner ear infection. Then over the weekend, she began walking, less and less. Also, tilting her head to the left, when trying to determine which direction she wanted to go.

I have prayed about this because I do know the risks when a pet is put under anesthesia.. While praying last night, with Hashbrown in my arms, she looked me straight in the eyes, put her left paw on my cheek and just looked as if she was saying it will be okay Mom.

The vet, Kelly, watched her as she tried to decide if she was going to walk for him; which she never did. She was tilting the head and the way she moved herself around, he said it could be a cerebral problem. He said he will be keeping her overnight, because Kitties with possible cerebral problems can have a difficult time coming out of anesthesia. He also stressed, she might not come out of it, if that is the problem.

Right now I need to know if we can be doing more to help her.
If she injured herself sometime, maybe a fall when I was not home, then perhaps there is something we can do to help her recover fully.

God Bless,


I am behaving!!

I have made Mom happy, I stayed on the floor through the nite and so far today. I even used one of the beds she prepared for me. Other times I was sleeping in front of the food dishes I prefer to eat from. Guess I take a nap after eating and to regain my strength to move somewhere else.
My head is moving more normal today,not as bouncy, that also has Mom happy!!
We thank the Lord for touching me and for my friends who have been praying for me.


I'm Home!!

Mom and Bella picked me up today and brought me home. Mom is concerned because I am still bopping my head when moving and my left side seems weaker than usual. Perhaps the infection is causing me to be off balance, like an inner ear infection causes people to have vertigo.

The vet said it may take 2 weeks for me to get over this infection.

Mom would like to request prayers still for me, that the infection will be completely gone soon and that I will be happy staying on the floor. Mom worries about me climbing out of the computer chair. That I could fall wrong and really hurt myself. So she is going to make the computer chair unavailable to me. But she cannot do that with the sofa and love seat both. She told me that she will have to crate me at night and when she is gone, if I don't stay on the floor, until I have more of my balance back. She is giving me a chance - to see what I will do tonight.

Again thank you each one for the Prayers. Love you all.

God Bless,

I am still at the Vet and will stay tonite, but he feels I just have an inner ear infection. He said that he saw improvement. Mom was relieved with the good news. I should be back home tomorrow.
Thank you to everyone for the prayers. I feel blessed for friends like you.


My First Entry and I need prayer!

Mom thought that I had a diary already. She has shared how I came to be in her life a few times and she really thought that I had written about it in my diary too. Poor mom's loosing it!! MOL

I am spending tonite at the Vet's. Mom woke up this morning, to go to work (babysitting) and she said that I did not look right, how I was laying. She picked me up and my head started bopping around. She took me in to see if I would eat and drink and I did both. Having some problems finding the water, because of my head bouncing up and down.

Donald was home and he watched me today. Mom called and made me an appointment with the vet and it was for this evening. Donald said that I was walking going to the left. My left legs were broken when I was hit by a car, which was before I met Mom. I limp and sometimes the limp is worse than others. I am wobbly too.
If mom holds me and then sits me down and I am not flat on the ground, I will topple over. She is careful when holding me. She calls me fragile.
Today I was trying to go in circles, yet I still found my way to the litter box and did fine there.

The vet does not know for sure what is going on. He does not believe that I have had a stroke. I am only 2 and my pupils are normal. He thinks that I may have an inner ear infection. Or there could be an underlying cause from being hit by the car or I may have hurt myself at home, when mom was not there (like falling off the couch--mom has never seen me do this).

Tonite (Thursday) I will receive a shot of an anti-inflammatory medication and a shot of a strong antibiotic. Mom is to call between 2:30 and 3:00 tomorrow; Dr Dave will call if there are any problems before that.

Please pray that my problem is one that I can get over quickly and not something that could be serious.

God Bless and Love,
