I am one year old today!! Well approximately today, Mol. I am furry excited! Does this mean I am officially an adult now? Hehe, I think it should be.
Mom says our tags came in the mail just in time! She says she is getting us both something special on each of our birthdays. So today Mom is giving us our new tags! We'll post pictures later today (Its only 1am here, Mol, and its very dark).
Mom planted some catnip outside the other day and got another plant to plant inside too! We're really excited about it! She also bought some cat grass seeds so she'll be planting that hopefully today so I'm sure it will be growing before we know it!
Please send some purrs over to Alfie Angel, Milo, TeddyBear and Ollie's Mom. She was in the hospital with Ecoli poisoning. We heard the news from Pete's diary. We sure hope she recovers quickly, apparently it was fury serious!
Pete's Diary entry, Alfie's Page. Thanks.
We'll post pictures of us and our new tags later today and let you know how my Burdday is going. ♥

Blade found his way into the bunny area today! But let me tell you, he really isn't as heroic as he makes himself sound! Once Blade got in he crouched in the corner, and any corner he could get into! It was quite funny actually, does a hero usually hide under the bunny wooden tunnel? MOL!!!! The bunnies are the ones who came to meet Blade, and Blade WAS very brave that he didn't run away, he was a little shocked but still brave. When Mom came to rescue him, he went right back in to play with them, hehehe.
I just stayed and watched, I am not as interested in getting in, I am okay with talking to them through the cage ;).

Mol, of course we continue to find ways of getting in to see mom's Easter bunnies. Hehe. Blade and I quietly sneak into the bunny room and take turns going up to meet them! Its a little scary at times, they look like they are trying to come at us too! But I was super brave and went to meet them. Blade keeps trying to get into their area but we haven't found a way yet. (Mom says once we know how we'll easily get into their caged off area). looks like we'll have to keep trying!
Mom has been telling us about other bunny's too! She went and bunny sat for someone she knows and they have 3 bunnies! She went twice a day to feed them and clean up after them, one of the bunnies is a tripod but getting older so he needs special care. Mom loves animals so she said it was fun to take care of them, plus they said to her that they will call on her more often too. :)
Things haven't changed too much around here. Blade had a bit of an incident last week, mom thinks he ingested some carpet, she took him into work since he vomited a few times and wasn't interested in food, and acting lethargic. Anyways when he came back that night he was almost back to normal. It wasn't too bad but we hope it doesn't happen again! Mom has us in her room when she is gone and we like to dig at the carpet by the door, we're making quite a mess... She wants to keep us out more but as she doesn't live alone it is hard for her to control what is laying around the house that we can get into, she really can't trust it. Mom has ordered calming door sachets and she is hoping that will help. Any other suggestions would be well appreciated!
We need to get on Mom to put new pictures of us up!! The other ones are getting older and older. We'll bug her until she gets some up!

Life feels like a circus here sometimes! With Blade and I chasing each other back and fourth, playing with our favorite toys, and now Stewie (the dog) is in on the fun too!
Stewie's been playing with Blade non-stop, steeling his toys and what not. Its quite the show here! Its like a stampeed going from one room to the other, and here I am watching the show. Of course I'm sometimes in the fun and games too but I find it quite entertaining to watch, mol.
Sometimes Mom sighs and shakes her head at Blade, but usually she laughs a little too. Blade is quite a smarty pants, don't get me wrong, of course I am too but by letting Blade do everything he's the only one getting in trouble, hehe.
For a long while now Blade has been able to get Mom's bedroom door open. She likes to keep us in there while she is out so we don't get into any trouble. Anyways, ever since blade has known how to open that door. Mom has had to put a baby gate up (which he just jumps over) and a few contraptions to keep the door locked shut. Now as we have been going around house he was seen Mom open doors and now he opens those too. She avoids all outside doors as a precaution, but he is too smart for that of course. MOL, he has now found the bunny room! This is the room Mom has set aside her bunnies so that they have a space of their own and we can't see them. Looks like they are no longer a secret, Mom now has to baracade that door too, Mol. You'd think she'd be smart enough to go out and buy the round handles, but apparently not.
Mom got us some new collars today! Our previous ones were kitten collars, and as much as these adult collars are super big on us, Mom is hoping we won't be able to get these off so easily. She pretty much has to put them on every day at the rate we take them off. She said she is looking into getting us new tags as well, we have the trupanion ones but she'd really like to get us some with her phone number on it.
I'm off to sleep on Mom's bed, I have to be ready for tomorrow's games!

Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canadian furiends!! As well as to our other furiends although you your thanksgiving is a little later in the year.
Tomorrow Mom and Stewie are going out to a family thanksgiving dinner She says it is going to be lots of fun! This is Stewie's first thanksgiving (as well as ours) but we don't get to go with for dinner. Stewie says it is almost his Gotcha Day! October 24 is the day Mom adopted him, and she is so happy she did. We are too, MOL, he is fun to play with (and attack).
Mom has tried to make us a catnip toy! We love it! You should see Blade playing with it, MOL, he is very amusing to watch.
Mom got us some costumes from petsmart and will try to attempt getting pictures with them on again. But we don't like the hats very much, MOL. They are a little big on us since we are a bit on the smaller side so they come off fairly easy.
Sorry we haven't been around a lot. Mom must have hurt her back at work a few weeks ago and just isn't up to spending a lot of time on the computer. If there is anything going on that we should know about please p-mail us, we'd like to know! We are trying to keep up but we know we are missing things here and there.
Stewie's best Furiend Tux has traveled to Rainbow bridge on friday, Tux is also part of Zach andZoe's family. They are some of our best furiends, our first friends on both Dogster and Catster!! Please send some purrs to their family!
Yesterday Mom came home smelling all funny. We came up to her and asked her where she'd been?! She says she spent the whole day at a Rabbit Festival clipping nails, brushing their shedding fur and so on. It is a very busy event and Mom says she got Very hairy!! She said she did it last year and it is such a good experience. She brought home some toys for her bunnies. But, we asked her, where are our toys?? Apparently they don't sell cat toys at the rabbit festival! Although she says some cats are good friends with their family rabbits so maybe one day we will be too?! We haven't even met them yet!
Anyways we are off. Mom has got work to do. And soon we'll be eating like kings! MOL. (Mom just cut her catgrass plant again)

There was an earthquake yesterday morning! Blade totally forgot to tell you guys last night so now I get to! Woohoo!
Okay, so no one felt it. The earthquake was a 6.4 and it was focused on the island not too far from here, but not many felt it over where we live. But, this is one of the bigger earthquakes we have had in our area, and aftershocks are possible. Okay so Mom doesn't think we'll have any but its a fun story anyways! We thought we'd share.
I'm feeling very good lately! Mom sent my records from when I was sick into the petinsurance company and already heard that they've received it! Okay so not a lot of what Mom payed will be covered because of the silly deductible but that is okay...
The toys I got after being sick have all been stolen by Blade. They are tons of fun to play with but he guards them and doesn't want me to play with them... I do every now and then but if he catches me he usually takes it. Mom told me she might get a few more when she goes out to that store again. Then hopefully I'll get to play with them a little more.
I never meowed a lot before but after being sick I have been meowing a lot more. It's fun! I enjoy going around meowing! Plus I get more attention that way.
Blade has been hogging Mom's attention though... Mom says all I have to do is come to her for pets but I think she should come to me...
Mom is thinking of bringing us in for our second vaccines soon, she had postponed it because I was sick but now that I am better she is thinking of it again.
Anyways that's all for now. We are having tons of fun running around! Mom has been letting the foster kitten in with us for short periods of time, she thinks that if we were gonna get what he has we would have already.

I am feeling so much better today!! If you haven't been around I have been very sick for the past week, since tuesday morning, maybe even Monday. I've been to the vet on IV fluids for 2 nights and a couple nights with Mom so she could monitor me.
I want to thank everyone who has been purring for me and for all the angels sprinkling angel dust on me. That stuff really works!! Yes it did take a while for them to kick in to help me feel better but I'm sure that if you guys weren't there it would have taken 10 times as long for me to get better! Mom wants to thank you too, this has been a super stressful week on her too, she is grateful for friends who understand and care about what is all going on.
So my last update I was still lethargic, diarrhea, and hiding under the bed not wanting to have anything to do with Blade.
Well today Mom took me out of my sick cage and put me with Blade and gave us two new toys! Well that got me felling better right away! I am now back in action. I'm not quite ready for Blade's roughhousing but we are having fun chasing each other around, oh how I've missed this. Oh and out BIG bowl of food Mom puts out for the both of us. Mom is going to keep us on this food for a while now. We like this food! - "Hey Blade, give me back my toy!!" - sorry I need to keep an eye on Blade or he'll steel my new toy for good!
I've got 2 1/2 more days of mediation. Liquid metronidazole - YUCK! and Famotidine. I can't wait till they are done, maybe Mom will stop giving me them if I am better?
Note from Mom: I don't think that's going to happen Moppie, LOL
Aww, Mom!! So unfair!! I think you guys should call the authorities, Mom is poisoning me with Metronidazole!! If you've had it you know exactly what I mean. What a stuupid medication... It should be banned. Lets see how the humans like it!!
Anyways I have some running around to catch up on. Later!

I'm still sick. I just got home from the vet again. Please read my last diary if you haven't already. I have no good news, and my bad news is that I'm no better...
Mom went to pick me up and saw my paw was swollen up HUGE!! The dr didn't even notice. This is the main reason Mom brought me in last night for and they decided I needed more fluids. Anyways Mom is pissed at the dr for not doing anything about it, but of course she won't say anything cause that's just the way she is...
The dr told mom to wrap my IV (keep it in) in case I need more fluids later on today. Mom said my paw is swollen and that she doesn't want to leave it in. He said okay, but we'd have to re-do it later if we put him on fluids again.
I'm still lethargic. Mom hasn't tried to feed me yet. I had diarrhea 5 times throughout the night. Now Mom says she has medications to give me at home, so hopefully (cross your paws) that it will help me too.
I will be updating this diary periodically throughout the day as I did with my last diary.
Had my medications at 1pm. One of the ones last time made me throw up, and I licked my lips and felt nauseated but didn't throw up this time. I've still been having diarrhea. Mom has me in a cage in her room and I've just slept the whole day. Blade wants in my cage too and keeps swatting me in the face, especially when I try eat, MOL. Mom said she'll let me out with Blade before she goes for work to see more how I am, and will likely take me to work tonight just to monitor me.
Mom took me to work again, this time just to monitor me cause grandma doesn't really know what to look for if I'm not feeling well. Plus grandma just had gotten home for work when Mom left for her work.
When Mom got to work she took my temperature, it is now back in the normal range. No fever for me!! Yay! Hopefully it doesn't come back at all.
I am eating and drinking fine. Still sleeping a lot but Mom says I look a little more perky then I did earlier. I still have diarrhea which is no fun...
I am now safe and sound at home with Mommy.
The meds Mom is giving me are HORRIBLE!! Is Mom trying to poison me? The medication she gives me makes me foam at the mouth for a few minutes and feel very nauseated, then it eventually passes. I should go hide under Mom's bed so she can't give me meds anymore.
I am purring and enjoying my petting time now, but I am not up to any playing though. Mom put me out in the room with Blade and I have to hide under her bed to keep Blade from finding me and trying to play with or attack me. I am now safe and sound in my cage... although I still would rather be out...
Please keep purring for me to get better, I'm not over this yet.

Been vomiting and having diarrhea today! Threw up this morning a few times while Mom was asleep and then she was contemplating on taking me to the vet then but decided to wait, I threw up again last time Mom syringe fed me (7 hours after the last time). Till then I was keeping everything down, and I still am - to an extent. I haven't been interested in the canned food Mom has been offering me all day, she has been syringe feeding me to make sure I have food. She just offered me some of my dry food and I ate some of that on my own.
Anyways I haven't really been feeling like doing anything all day. I don't like this cage Mom put me in, I don't like to be trapped, she says its so she can monitor me while she is downstairs. Mom says I'm messing with her head because I seem to be a little more perky now, and since I ate food on my own it's a good sign. But she's still worried. Mom keeps telling her co-worker that she plans to bring me to the vet, Mom works tonight at 12am so she is starting to wonder if she should bring me in now or when she goes to work.
Anyways I'm just letting you know. Mom's stressed, and she isn't sure if it is bad to wait, she knows in some cases it can be very bad to wait, but since she doesn't know what it is she isn't sure. She's already waited this long...
Please purr, both for me to get better and to make sure Mom's head doesn't pop off from stress. Hopefully it's nothing serious and that I get better fast.
I'm at the V-E-T's. The dr first wanted to give a medication to help with the diarrhea, Mom stuck this medication in my mouth. It made me throw up!! No meds for me right??
Well the dr and Mom ganged up on me and stuck me with a needle! Even one of Mom's coworkers helped hold me down cause I tried to squirm away. Mom says the needle is attached to Iv fluids and will be good for me. I see no way this is helping... At first it wasn't so bad but then Mom stuck a popsicle stick next to my leg so that the Iv would flow properly. Well now I am forced to sleep sitting up cause my stuupid leg is like ten times the size. I suppose you could call me peg leg today, MOL.
Mom snuck a picture of me sleeping against the bars. She'll post it later when we are home.
For now I'm on fluids, they gave me an injection for the diarrhea. They want to wait to see if I get better. If I don't I will have get blood work done. Maybe an x-ray too.
We're home now! I am still super tired and lethargic. I was on fluids all night. Mom did x-rays on me during the night and in the morning the dr said since that treatment didn't work that we should go ahead and do bloodwork.
My xrays seemed fine. Bloodwork was fairly good. Nothing was too out of the norm. So the dr said it is either a foreign body which is possible but only if it were part of a toy, and it wouldn't be seen on x-rays. Or it could have been a toxin of sorts, which the only thing that could be is that Mom has been switching foods around a bit. She was trying to start us on our raw diet and it was going well for a few days, I'm not sure what changed. It was stuff Mom had was frozen for stewie for feeding raw, it all was good, but possibly in the freezer too long? don't know... Or it was sudden diet change, since you can't mix normal food with raw. Its hard to say.
Anyways I got a few injections so hopefully I'll get better through out the day. I sure hope I do. I'm sleeping all the time, and I really hate this cage Mom keeps putting me in... I want to go see Blade Mom!!
I still have my IV line in so that if I need IV fluids Mom can bring me to another vet to get it during the day.
On the bright side I have now mastered sleeping sitting up.
Update: August 26, 2011
Mom noticed my foot seemed to be swelling up. She decided to bring me to the V-E-T to either remove the iv catheter or re-bandage it. At the same time it wouldn't hurt to get the drs opinion of what is going on.
Mom and a dr I have not met took my temperature and I have a fever! 39.5, which high normal is supposed to be 39.0... The dr wants me on fluids again throughout the night. He told Mom she could take me home with fluids but Mom decided to leave me here because otherwise I won't be on a set rate, and medications would be available if needed. So they set up my IV again.
Mom and the dr were talking after it was all set up so I fell asleep. When I woke up she was gone!! She left without saying goodbye to me! Now I am here without her, I've never been without her before....
Note from Mom: It hurts me to have to leave him. I would have loved to say bye, but I had to tear myself away, walking quickly towards the door with tears in my eyes. It's one thing being with them when their sick but having to leave them when they are sick feels like one of the hardest thing I've ever done... I hope he gets better soon because I'm not sure how long I can take this.
