Hello, not sure how many are out there but thought if we can start writing diaries maybe some will come back to catster. Maybe not but it just doesn't feel write anywhere else. Although I believe the comment section isn't working still, which is unfortunate...
Mom has started a new job at a new clinic. Usually she has to hide the fact that she likes to feed the raw diet to us. As many of you likely know, vets aren't particularly fond of the raw diet. But since starting there mom found out that half the staff also feed raw, and even the clinic cat is on raw!! Ok, so maybe it wasn't the doctor's idea originally. But apparently he is starting to approve of it too based on how well the clinic cat did on the diet.
Anyways, this has inspired Mom to try the raw diet on us again. It had been a while. Galaxy has never tried the raw diet so it is definitely new to him. We got our first raw meal last night. Chicken. Well... It could have gone better. It was ok, but Mom didn't defrost it very well and well we just didn't want to try it. It was an odd texture too. Why mess with a good thing, right? Anyways she tried the same the next morning in hopes maybe it was just that it was too cold. I had a few bites, galaxy didn't eat any of it...
Tonight Mom tried a different kind. She tried Elk. Ya I know, random right?! I loved it! Galaxy and I usually eat side by side and I hissed at him and told him its all mine. I guess he believed me cause he didn't have any.
As much as I can't complain if I get his portion too, does anyone have any tricks to get a stubborn cat interested in raw?! Mom says she will have to give a bit of dry tonight so he doesn't starve, but she is insisting to get us all on it. Mom got a 'starter kit' of raw so there are a few different kinds to try. Which she will do, but she also doesn't want to open them all at once...
I have lost a bit of weight since Galaxy has moved in. Mom thinks the stress of having him around isn't good for me, plus he may be stealing my food. Mom is hoping raw may help me gain some weight for the fact that it is hopefully tastier then regular food. As for Galaxy he has gotten kind of on the chubby side, again likely because he is eating my food!! Stewie (the dog) is also slightly on the chubby side, he likes to steal both of our food if he gets the chance as well as a new habit of getting into his and our bags of food.
In general Galaxy and I get along relatively well. We are able to co exist together. We argue now and then, but no one ever gets physically hurt.
Stewie is good with both of us as always. Mainly because he thinks if he is in our good books we will let him have some of our food.
I will leave our diary there for today. We hope others are doing well!
Purrs, Blade (and Galaxy too)

So about 2 weeks ago Mom checked my teeth like she so often does and noticed my canine tooth was broken, I said to Mom Good Riddance!! I don't need a dog tooth in my mouth! Anyways Mom was worried anyways.
Anyways Mom asked the vet right away and she said that if the pulp is exposed it either needs a root canal right away (within like 24 hours of breaking or something, or let the tooth slowly rot till it needs to be taken out). Obviously Mom doesn't want me in pain forever till it has to come out, but she didn't know when it happened so not sure if the other option was still possible.
Today Mom took me to the vet, and the dr had a look at my toothy and said that the pulp is NOT exposed, and that as long as the tooth does not chip anymore or wear down much it will be fine! The vet had talked to Mom before about how to look for the pulp and Mom didn't see it so she was hoping for the best.
Anyways the trip to the vet obviously was not fun. So scary I had to hide under the blanket the whole way there. Mom put Galaxy in the cage with me at the vet, she said he needed vaccines. After that car ride, I decided things are only going to get worse them there on so I shut myself off and ignored the world. When Mom took me out I clung onto her for dear life because I had no other option. But nobody poked me!! I thought everyone got poked at the vet! Then another long ride home.
Finally I am safe and sound at home.
So good news that my tooth is good the way it is for now. Bad news is, the vet saw my teeth and said I needed a dental.
Happy to be home,

Mom let a stranger into the house!! I am mad at her and not playing with her as much any more, and there is no point in asking attention from her because we all know this invader is going to get all of her attention.
This invader is in the form of a black and white kitten. Mom's excuse is that "She did it for me". She thinks we are suddenly going to become best pals or something. How wrong could she be!?
Anyways Mom has let me downstairs while he was hanging out in the front room. So I decided it would probably be a good idea to keep an eye on the thing, make sure he doesn't get too comfortable. But you know what I found out with my spying?! He is playing with my cat-it ball track (Mom says I don't use it much any more, but that doesn't mean its not mine.) and my favorite butterflies on a stick. It hurt when I saw him playing with that toy. Mom knows its my all-time favorite toy. She brought it back to play with me, and I refused to get as excited as normal.
Mom heard to try get us to eat near each other, which Mom thought sounded easy since we both love food. But I refuse to eat downstairs anywhere near him.
Anyways, Mom tricked me yesterday and today and brought him upstairs!! Putting us both on opposite sides of the door. We both ate fine, and tonight she opened the door a crack and we also ate fine, Mom even pushed it that I am eating in plain view (like a foot apart) but on the other side of the door, I was hesitant but the food is delicious so I couldn't resist.
Anyways. Mom hopes this is a good sign. I say lets play this by ear. Don't get too excited that I am eating yummy food.
Wish me luck with the invader,
