So I've been telling mom all the time that I don't want her to leave and that I miss her, and that she needs to hang out with me 24/7. So Mom came up to me on Friday and was like, well then, do you want to go to work with me?? I didn't say no, but I soon found out what work meant.
It meant a 15 minute car ride (which was pretty scary!! I hid under my blanket because I thought it was safer under there. When we got to moms work I thought maybe it was all over and that it was safe to come out. Mom even asked me to come out, I thought I could trust her... Instead when I came out mom plopped me into another cage!! One with big bars!! Mom brought our bed from home, that was the only thing I recognized so I laid on it with my chin over the edge making the saddest face I could. I continued that position for most of the day. Moms coworker even came by and put a catnip pouch on my head, it stayed there for at least half an hour, maybe longer!! Till mom came to take a picture (she apparently finds this torture amusing) then it fell off. Mom even offered treats throughout the day and I refused to give into this temptation.
Blade at the vet
is it time to go home yet?
4 hours later mom came to get me, I tried to stay in the cage, I didn't want to go see the humans that have been bugging me all day! Mom got me out anyway, I clung onto her for dear life, one paw on either side of her neck, I didn't plan that very well cause I was trying to get to her shoulder to use it as a launch pad to get away. Everyone was like "aww he's hugging you". Mom brought me to the doctor who pocked and prodded me and said "he is in perfect shape, he's very fit!!", then he stabbed me with a needle and was done with me.
How do our pawrents get away with doing this to us?? Luckily grandma came to save me, and brought me home. At least the scary car ride brought me somewhere safe.
I'm very glad the ordeal is over, now I can eat, play, and get the attention I well deserve.
Mom says its really odd how depressed I was. I don't go to the vets often but usually I warm up fairly quickly. But then again I used to have Moppie to keep me company, maybe having him there helped me feel more comfortable about being there.
Anyways you can all have headbonks now that I am back safely home.
Ps. Sorry I gave up on making a proper photo link. It's been too long, and the coder I used to use is not working...

We are so happy catster is staying, a little surprised, but at the same time Mom was sticking around till the end because she just couldn't accept leaving yet. We've gone around and signed up for pretty much all the sites out there and none are as good as catster, although Pets4pals had a lot of promise. If catster does end up sticking around, I'd feel really bad for them because they put so much time and effort into creating a site that accommodated us catster cats. We are very picky and particular you would have to agree with that. We are curious as to who is partnering with catster, and hoping there will be a time contract made up so we can all feel safe and at home here for a while.
Catster is the reason Mom adopted us, without catster maybe we would be at a shelter somewhere, who knows where we would have ended up. Mom joined catster as Simon and Tony the clinic cats, she thought it would be fun to share stories from their point of view. Over time her love for cats grew and grew. As soon as the opportunity to Take me in, Mom took me in with open arms. Then she took in the foster kitten now named Merlin in his new home, and Moppie who we all loved to bits.
We owe catster a lot, life wouldn't be the same without it. Yes Mom's gotten distracted by life quite a bit but she always ends up back here now and again.
The timing for catster trying to shut down was not great for us. Mom and I are grieving our own loses. Mom didn't want to accept catster closing down, and now she doesn't have to, we are just hoping they don't let us down.
An update here, I am healthy as ever, but very lonely lately. I am desperate for attention from humans. I don't like being left alone, although I never did before, but at least I had a furriend to keep me company.
Mom is going through some job changes. Some that may be interesting for you guys! She is currently working at a large clinic for cats and dogs, (no clinic pets), but she was offered a job at an all cat clinic. And she will be working there full time starting next month. There are usually kitties up for adoption there, but they act as clinic cats until they are adopted, so we may set up a profile so we can share some more stories.
Anyways, Cheers to Catster and their new partner!!

Merry Christmas to all of our furriends and their families!! Thank you for all the wonderful giftie trees.
Mom got me a food dispensing ball for me, but gave it a little early, she wants me to keep busy with things. But in all fairness I'd rather gobble all that food down at once then go cuddle with Mom for an hour (especially when she's just gotten to bed).
Mom also bought us one of those new electric cat toys, the one where the mouse goes in circles. She says its fun but it won't work yet cause Mom says she needs to go buy batteries! You'd think they would take traditional batteries but nope, has to be the ones that mom never have on hand. I'll let you know what I think of it when Mom gets it up and working.
This Christmas is a little bitter-sweet for us here. We appreciate all of our furriends and family for being there for us, thank you.
