Tux ate a whole chicken breast last night and took his pills like a good boy. Mom says this is good and hopes the meds are finally kicking in but she still says there's no guarantees. One bad day is okay but doc said two days without eating is really bad. One day at a time.
Mom's friend is talking to her again. And Mom as of right now is picking up Griswold Friday afternoon. But with Doc going out of town Mom might have to get him Wed afternoon. Mom really wanted his first days at his new home to be on the weekend.
What else..Oh he has his page up and running!It's so cool.
You can hear Anna and Presley playing their Violins on my page.
And Zach has Pearl Jam doing Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay. If you are a fan you will love this song. Mom Guaranteed!
I can't think of anything else. We have some sick kitty friends out there. Don't forget to include them and their families in your nightly purrs.

Can I make a wish for getting DDP?
Well sense my DDP is about Tux eating again and his meds making him better, I feel a little survivors guilt. I just found out that Ollie, our favorite English buddy died today. Mouse told Tink and Tink posted the news and a link to Ollie's page.
My wish is that we all purr for poor Ollies family. Talking to his Mom in the past, you could tell he had a very special place in her heart. My Mom says it's because she hand reared him herself at the young age of 1 week old. It's not known what exactly was wrong with him.
I also would like all of us to keep Max in our hearts. He is so sick. And like Tux he has stopped eating and drinking water. Please purr for his vets to have the wisdom to make the right decisions and for him to be able to keep his strength up long enough for the Docs to fix him. Also keep his family in mind, as you know it's never ever easy watching a furbaby get seriously sick.
Both of these kits wrote diaries yesterday about their illnesses.
PS- Tink, you are such a blessing to us all, so glad you guys didn't get swept up in those floods. Love you.

The Blood Thirsty Princess Cap'ns Log-----------9/14
At 0900 hrs called down to Charleston to check on my ship. All the barnicales and all extra weight have been taking off. Sleeper is already there repairing a couple things and signing for all the provisions being delivered. She is to be put back in the water right after lunch.
Meantime Tink is driving down her to pick me up. We should be arriving in Charleston around 13oo hrs. Simone is flying in today to await for us to meet her there.
Tink just showed up.
At 1200hrs got text from Sleeper...She is in the water waiting your approval. Simone showed up an hour ago. MOL. She said she had no idea the ship would be so big!
Zack is sleeping in so we can possibly get a good look at his ships. Maybe, even do a little sabotaging...Arrrrrgghh!
We will spend the next day preparing the ship for sail. My crew is supposed to be here around 11oo hrs tomorrow. We will set sail Tomorrow in the dark of night instead of leaving out Friday like I agreed to with Zach.
The idea is to beat Zach and his ships out of port. We are going after his personal buried treasure.
Girls the guys have showing their posters here's your souvenir

Don't forget to befriend our little brother. He is going to have a diary probably tomorrow night, seeing that it will be his first night here. Mom said sense we will be in thick of our pirate lives that she will have to report how things are going with the kit on his page. Mom says thats fitting anyway. She just doesn't want anybody missing out on the fun.
Mom went and got the kitten food, another smaller sided litter box and non clumping litter for him. It is so hard to find non clumping.
Good time for a Confession: one morning in her sleep Mom was cleaning out our litterbox and she dropped a scoop in the toilet. Now our litter is clumping. She went CRAP! She got out as much as she could WITH HER HANDS Mom hates cleaning the toilets never the less putting her hands in there. Well she figured what little was left wouldn't do any harm. But it seems to have....our private toilet is so slow at draining. Any ideas anybody? Mom thought about burrowing her dads snake but she's not sure if that will work. Maybe draino.
Ps Tink, You gave him his first star and we will never forget that. May we be friends forever. Love you my FGSIL. Get it? MOL!
Future geriatric sister in law. At least you guys know you'll be together. My secret man will never be mine.

Capn's log 9/15
1300 hrs Thur... all my crew is here, unfortunately the boys have hours on us. I would love to deter them from getting to the treasure but I keep thinking we could fall back on the original idea of stealing his personal treasure. I need Tink and Simone to help me figure this out. I'm going to top deck.
1300 and some change..when I went on top I happened to notice Zach's scarab The Black Widow. Why didn't he take it? Samhain said she could start it no problem even without a key. So I sent her, Natasha and Callie to steal the scarab. Just when they looked like the Charlie's angels slinking into the boat. Tink screamed Blizz! I my god, Blizz popped out of a taxi with his two brofurs. I was so scared for the girls but just as Blizz noticed them, Samhain jingled something shinny. Simone said "It's the keys!" Simone started pointing at Blizz running toward them Natashia seen him and had kittens! They took off from right under his nose. Tink looked at me and said "Cap we need to be gone like yesterday"
I commanded the ship out of port. I felt sorry for Blizz but you know.
1500 hrs, just talked to the girls. I have seen a lot of Whale wars and you guys could slow the guys down with the scarab. But how? I then told them to do figure 8s around the two ships, that is if they even notice you there. It will be black as night. I will think of something for you girls to do and call you.
2000 hrs..still don't know what the girls can do to slow the guys down? Any ideas?

Cap'ns Log 9/14--Tink woke me up this morning with a great idea. She mentioned holding Blizz and family hostage. For the treasure? Yeah!
Called Samhain, told her she's done aggravating the guys go back and kidnap Wink Wink Blizz and his family. Offer what ever it takes to get them on our ship.
Just got the call from the girls. Blizz and Squeaker is a no go but Kringle said sure! Blizz is livid with him! He said "Your a girl to me forever, Kringle! Trader!"
Had meeting with the girls, told them that Kringle. is dangerous but sweet to kittens. For no reason she he be on top deck. Ever.
He is not our prisoner per say, he will be our ransom.
Now, we were able to catch up with the guys during the night while Samhain, Natasha and Calie tied them up literally. See they tied both of the boats together and Samhain slinked up on deck and cut a sail or two. "They shouldn't drink so much Grog"
came from the crowd, it was Miranda. Sweet Miranda. A huge laughter erupted. I love seeing my girls happy.
I called Maedia, who is already in St. Lucius and asked her to do what ever it takes to keep the guys from coming on land.
Do you want to go after the treasure ourselves tomorrow or steal it from the guys after they had done the hard work?

Gris can't get his diaries to show on diary central and you can't leave comments either.
Panda said you have to go to his page to see the diaries. He's wrote two now. Sorry about the inconvenience.
MOM-This is not the way I wanted his first days to be like here!

How silently they tumble down
And come to rest upon the ground
To lay a carpet, rich and rare,
Beneath the trees without a care,
Content to sleep, their work well done,
Colors gleaming in the sun.
At other times, they wildly fly
Until they nearly reach the sky.
Twisting, turning through the air
Till all the trees stand stark and bare.
Exhausted, drop to earth below
To wait, like children, for the snow.
It's warm still outside but nobody can keep from thinking about County Fairs, Candy Mice, glowing Pumpkins, and fire induced scents in the air.....Ahhhhh! There's even special moons this time of the year, I particularly like to stay up to look at the Harvest Moon myself. Diamond likes it when the moon with the halo shows up. Mom told her one time that if you count the stars inside the halo you know how many times it will snow. That Dog is nuts over snow.
Okay, Just got to say it's an honor to get DDP on the same day they released Luke! Seriously! And TCOTD what a great name and a great song, Mustang Sally. And to share the stage with my little brother Griswold and little Novie Wow! And Sarge! What a great DDP crew! Now my little brothers cute little face on the screen trumps anything I say today! He is cute!
Thanks for the last set of preezies I got the other day. Busy, busy, busy!

What do we say? Do we do a tribute, do we do a love letter, or do we tell everyone what happened. Mom said she thought about writing something down, something sweet something eloquent but she decided to write start from the heart.
First, Tux gave up, you could see it in his eyes. Doc told us when you see a dog go outside and they just stand there, like they are lost, no sniffing of the ground, no ears perked up and no happy wag of the tail....that the quality of life has left them. That's what's been happening. He was doing fine till last week during the cold rains we had. It made him achy, it made him not even want to pick up his head to tell me "Hey" when I walked in the door. Then he stopped eating again Wed. and refused to drink water. Mom and Dad brought him over yesterday, he walked around in my backyard barely being able to hold himself up. He just kept walking in big circles, like he thought if he stopped and sat down he would never get back up. Right then seeing him like that I knew it was time (honestly, I knew last weekend but Mom and Dad needed to be ready to let him go). The quality of life had left him. Turns out that's why they brought him over. So he could have one last visit with me, David, Diamond and the cats.
My mother, Linda, is officially a cancer survivor sense her surgery back in late July or was it early Aug? Anyway, she is still weary from her battles mentally and physically. Tux's not wanting to eat and Mom knowing that's the only way he can survive, was taking a toll on her. She was always with him, night and day. She seen every bad day he had and felt his pain. I think of all the times over the last couple years that he would be sleeping and I would strain my eyes to make sure his chest is moving, sometimes even walking over to feel his chest move. Imagine how many times my Mom has done that. Sometimes watching someone die slowly is just as bad as being the one dying. Hate to sound bad but this is a release for both of them, Mom and Tux.
Mom could not bare going in while Doc was helping Tux pass. So it was Dad and me carrying him in right at closing time. You could see the hurt in the eyes of the lady that was there to pick up her gorgeous Golden Retriever (which had a grey muzzle of his own). I think she knew.
We are going to miss seeing your grey muzzle walking in the door, so full of life. You always looked like you were smiling. I was happy to see you too. Everybody loved you, you even inspired Trisha to adopt an elderly dog. She loved how your were so laid back and calm and loving. That you had an air of chill about you. What she didn't know was that it wasn't your age showing, that was just you.
The day I got you, I was surrounding by 8 little bouncing puppies. All trying to get my attention, all running in circles trying to nip each others back legs. You were all so cute. Little fuzz balls with big eyes and puppy breath. I just couldn't make up my mind which one of you I wanted to take home. I sat on the steps leading down into the pin where you all were and you came to me.
You were so cute. With your short stubby legs trying to climb those big steps but you made it. And then laid down to take a nap underneath my legs on the step. I knew right then you had picked me.
Over the years we have played in the fields of hay, in the woods, in the snow, and in the ocean. Celebrated the seasons together with long walks down the dirt road. At one point yesterday while walking up to the big Oak Tree I wanted to call out your name then I remembered why I was walking up there in the first place, to lay you to rest beside all the other pets I have had through out the years. As I turned and looked back toward the house, I could see you running down the driveway, with that little cantor of yours, ears and tongue just a flapping. Your were such a happy dog.
Thanks for letting me cry on your shoulder all those years and thanks for coming to me when you needed to feel safe, warm and loved. Years ago I made you the promise and yesterday we decided It was time. Baby, you are free now. You've have been with me for so long, it's time to give you back.
As you laid there, on that cold Stainless Steel table, you looked at me. You looked at me down to my soul. I felt your fear, but somehow I knew you were telling me you loved me and saying thank you. Then when the sedative started to relax you, and Dad was squatting in front of the table, rubbing your head. I leaned over to rest my head on his shoulder and you looked me again with such love. Dad told you that you were going to be young and full of life again within mins. I hope you seen us and heard us. Within mins, Doc came back in and helped you cross.
Till the day you see us again always remember.. we love you more than words could ever say and I can't wait to see those floppy ears a blowing in the wind as you run to catch up with me again.
A picture I've carried in my wallet for the last 14 years.
Thanks my friends for the love and support.
