Arrival Story:
Hillary was adopted as a result of my mom slipping on ice while shoveling off the car and breaking her elbow. When she got home from the hospital, on pain killers, we told her we needed to go to the pound and get a cat. Shockingly, again pain killers, she agreed and we went to the pound where we adopted two cats; Hillary and Timber (R.I.P).

Hillary is named for our favorite Presidential candidate.

Observations From On High

Told You So

Monday I went to the vet and it took four people to get me there and back. My subjects do not have a carrier so I had to be driven in the car and held the whole time. They put Ringo's collar on me just in case I managed to make a get away, but this did not happen. You might not know this about me but I HATE the outside world. I did that once, thank you very much and I am not interested in revisiting it. So we got to the vet and they put me on the scale. I weighed 9.8 lbs! I've lost 11 pounds in the past three years. My people were very concerned about my weight loss and so the vet took blood. They shaved part of my neck and I can't wait for it to grow in because I am a fluffy cat and like my fluff. The good news is that the blood results came back and I don't have a thyroid problem, liver issues, kidney failure, or diabetes. I could have told my people that and saved them a trip to the vet but no one ever listens to me. I think my second mommy was looking for any excuse to drag me there because she thinks the vet is cute. Obviously I did not get my brains from her. Regardless, the vet also looked at the sore I have on my lower lip and, much to my embarrassment, told everyone that I have kitty acne! Well, I am a teenager after all. But now I get 1 oz of antibiotics squirted into me twice a day to clear it up. I do not like this and put up a pretty good fight whenever I see that bottle and syringe appear. The liquid is bubblegum flavor and I don't even know what bubblegum is. Why don't they make it tuna flavored? I'd like that better. But again, no one listens to me.


These lips are sealed

I have a tale (luckily, not my tail) of woe to tell. Yesterday I woke up and my boss mommy (see my stupid brother Ringo's post on mommies for an explanation) looked at my lip and noticed that I have a sore! It doesn't bother me since I'm not picking at it and I'm still eating fine but my mom is concerned. She tries to hold my chin to get a good look but I don't like that AT ALL and let her know. Mommy is debating taking me to the vet since it has started to heal itself and I really really hope we don't have to go. The outside world is so scary and I'm happy as an indoor cat. I don't even like to look out the window that much the way my brother does. He even gets jealous when the dogs (bane of my existence) get to go out on walks and he stays home. I love when they leave because I hate them! I can't believe mommy even let them in the house. UGH. What was I saying? O yeah, mommy says it looks like a cold sore and I don't know what that is but I hope it's nothing bad. Regardless I think I'll blame the dogs for this since I'm sure that this is somehow all their fault.

So I left my perch on the kitchen counter to sniff around the computer that my people seem perpetually glued to in order to see what the fuss was about. After a battle with the mouse which I naturally won I ended up here on Catster! This seems like a very cozy place, and once I take another nap I might have the energy to do some exploration. From a brief perusal of other kitty diaries it appears there are some acronyms that I just don't know. What is a MOL? I have some theories such as Meow Out Loud which I do all the time and am quite an expert at. If this is right I think we can firmly cement my genius status.
Well feel free to stop by and say hello, but don't touch the treats or we can't be friends. However you can touch my adopted brother Ringo's treats no problem. Tell him Hillary sent you and that he better watch out!
