mom has some new pics of me - mom says that what she has heard about pictures of black kitties are so true - it is hard to get a good pic, but she got some - now just gotta put em on here! I go for the big snip on Nov. 1. Mom also wants the vet to look at my paw. I sort of walk slow & funny and I tend to hold it up when I am sitting. She went to cut my nails, and when she held that paw I pretty much went ballistic - which is VERY unlike me. I don't really run around alot like a 5 month old kitten should do, and mom wonders if it is because my foot feels funny. There looks to be almost another nail growing under the one nail on my pawpad. Not an extra toe, but a nail. So the vet will look at it when I go in, and maybe can fix it then. I would go sooner, but the vet is gone for a week, and mom kinda has her hands full with Maizy right now. Other than that, I am doing very well. I stay upstairs most of the day now, and doze in mom's closet or one of the kitty beds. I try to meow at mom, but I still squeak. SHe says it is very cute though. oh and guess what I did? The other day, mom was at the kitchen table having her coffee & watching the morning news, and I jumped up onto her lap all by myself! she did not even call me - I just did it! I took a nap in her arms, and purred the whole time. OH yea mom says she is gonna get me a collar, cause when I lay on the dark green rug in her room, sometimes she cannot see me - & doesn't wanna squish me! Well, mom has a bunch to write in Maizy's diary, so I will sign off for now with a squeak!

 

playtime!

This morning, The Dad picked me up & put me on the bed, and played kitty fish with me for a long time. I had so much fun! I am still too little to jump up there, and mom thinks my paw also prevents me from trying. But I was not scared of The Dad at all! He is very very nice, but to me he is big & has a deep voice, so I have been a little scared of him, especially since the break-in (mom figures it was at least 1 or 2 men that broke in & they were loud & scary) So I was kind of always slinking away when he walked in the room. But he has been trying really hard to make me not scared. He calls me Mr. Felix. Then Smitty jumped up there too, and we all played together some more! I was so pooped out I took a long nap! Happy Saturday!

tomorrow is the day that I lose em. you know what. The vet will also look at my paw to make sure there is nothing wrong with it. Some days I run on it like nothing, then some days I favor it. So we will see. Mom has a ton of pics that she has to put up here. I am growing like a weed, but I am still a tiny cat. and I eat like a HORSE!! I will update everyone tomorrow when I get back home. ahhh HOME that is a word I love!

Happy Halloween from a little black cat! BOO!

 

I just can't catch a break -news about my leg

The big snip is all done - not so bad - Doc gave me some pain meds that woooo my pupils were huge & I was a bit woozy all day.

When Dr called to tell mom that my surgery was done, she told her that I was showing pain in my foot, elbow & shoulder. She asked mom if it was ok to do xrays. (THe extra little claw was just a corn or callous - doc popped it right off). However, it seems that at some point I fractured the growth plate in my elbow & maybe my toe. Since that could affect my leg growth, I have to go see an orthopedic specialist. Dr said she felt better to have an expert opinion, since I am growing like a weed. Hopefully I won't need surgery, maybe a splint, maybe nothing at all. But I am in pain for sure, so something needs to be done. I go tomorrow morning. The place is an hour away, but mom says she will take me wherever I need to go. (Here's to hoping the insurance will cover this) She will have to use the $ she started to save for Maizy's endo. But since Maizy seems to be holding steady - it should be ok.

Boy in my short 6 months I have had a blade of grass in my nose that caused a URI, pneumonia, got frightened so bad from the men that broke in my house, had my parts removed, and now a broken leg. Dr said it could have happened when I was wrastling with Smitty, or if I jumped down off something the wrong way or even stretched wierd. So keep your paws crossed for me again. Mom will let you know the results.

 

news!

First I want to thank all of my friends for the purrs - they helped! The nice dr at this place said that the fracture I have is very small & he did not feel that it needed to be splinted. He feels that more of my pain is from a pulled muscle or tendon that must have happened at the same time. I have to rest as much as I can & try real hard not to wratle, and see where things are in a couple weeks. If it is not better, then we will prob have an MRI. He even gave mom his email to keep him updated. This place was amazing - momma says it is bigger & prettier than some people dr offices she has been to! They have dermatology, cardiology & all sorts of specialties there. If any of you are in the Chicagoland area - keep this place in mind. We are on the south side of Chicago, and it was about 1 hr 15 min from us in Buffalo Grove. And, the consultation was nowhere near as pricey as Mom was expecting. It was $82. Which for a specialist was not bad at all & hopefully my insurance will pay for 80%. So I just have to try & be good & quiet and get better. Thanks again!

 

I truly am a pirate

I was not such a good boy today. I was resting on Nana's bed (she has a fleece cover on there for us & heated blanket & she turns it on just for us) And Smitty jumped up too, and then Momma gave him a brand spanking new Yoww banana. Well, I have been playin with the sad ol beat up one, so well, I hate to say I just walked right over & took it away from Smitty. He did not even holler at me either. So I chomped on it a bit, and momma said that it was not very nice for me to do that, and then I decided lunch would be more fun anyways. It just smelled sooo catnippy I could not help myself. Momma says that she has to watch herself cuz I am so cute that I am gonna get away with stuff I shouldn't. Hey not my fault I am a cute little black cat right? Mom can touch my paw a little more without me freaking out, and she was rubbing my leg gently and I did not flinch as much. It seems to slowly be a little better. Guess I need some more napping on Nana's bed! thank you for the potp - it is working!

 

kitty zooom!

Well, Thanksgiving was a little traumatic for me - too loud, too many people. Even though we were all sequestered, I jammed myself into a corner & did not move until Momma lifted me out to eat. But now that it is quiet again, holy smokes have I been finally acting like a kitten! My leg does not seem to hurt, and I am running around all over. I figured out that if I can get onto the kitchen table, I can run over & jump onto the small table that momma has by the window. There is a soft rug on there for us to look out the window in comfort, and when the blind are up, the sun shines right on that rug (mommas are so smart) I have seen the other kitties up there but I could not get up there before. Now there are boxes around that make jingly noises, and Smitty says something about a tree inside. Really? I want that tree! I am getting tall & lanky and my fur is so shiny, Nana tells mom that I look like satin. Mom says that the Calming Treats are helping me too, and I get these little soft treats with DHA & Omega oils for kitten growth & brain development. I am a very happy kitten & my life is so good! Still no meows, but I can squeak! I open my mouth as if I am meowing, but nothing comes out..unless it is a supersonic meow...hmm maybe I am a super hero kitten? yeah SUPER FELIX! eeeep!

 

there's a tree in my house!

Wow Smitty was right. Momma & The Dad left on Friday & came home with this big green thing that smells like forest. It is huge! I was scared at first, but after playing chase with Smitty & jumping around underneath it, I like to sit under it. Momma will be putting the lights on it today, and then Smitty says it is very pretty. I did get in trouble, because I keep chewing the branches. It is a Noble fir with teeny needles, but Momma says NO FELIX - NO CHEW!

Oh and we got our present early! We got a cat tree!! I love it! There was some fighting for it on Friday night, but things have settled down. Momma says she is gonna try & move it by the window in the kitchen as there is room, and move our little table over.
All I know is that I am so happy. My leg feels better, and I get pets all the time, and Momma tells me she loves me so much & calls me "the best little black cat in the world" I look out the kitchen window & sometimes I see my 2 sisters that are still outside. Momma gives them warm food 2 times a day, and they have nice houses filled with straw to sleep in. They are twice my size! I was so very sick, and I am sure I would not have made it if Momma did not save me. I would not be here to enjoy the good life - I am a lucky boy. I do my best everyday to be good, and to give Momma the slow blinky eyes that tell her I love her too. My wishes all came true. I hope that wishes come true for all my friends.

 

WOW

This Christmas tree thing is great! I love to lay underneath it, and sometimes I chew on it, but I got in trouble for that... We got our present early - a cat tree! I LOVE IT. Mom put it by the kitchen window so we can see out. The little table is still there, just moved down, so there are more spots to look out into the back & see the birdies, and stuff. Only me & Tigger use it right now. I am growing & getting more confident. Mom is kind of concerned though, cause she went to clip my nails, and once again, I flipped out when she squeezed the paw on my bad leg, and I bit her really hard. And growled too. She is not angry with me - but not sure if it is still my leg, or if I just do not like my foot touched. She managed to clip the couple longer ones, but this needs to be resolved for sure. The other kitties do not make a fuss, so I should not - mom knows how to teach me about it. So she will try again, and perhaps call the vet. I had an xray of my paw taken, and vet thought my toe was broken too - but the specialty vet squeezed every toe, and I did not make a sound. Maybe I was too scared? Does any one else flip out like that for claw cutting? It is just weird cause I am so quiet & meek - I have to try real hard to even squeak. hmm mom says maybe she should have named me Jeckle or Hyde! Well, off to my perch by the window!

 

That was awesome!!

This Christmas thing was great! I got to know the human sister who came home from far away Seattle, and the human brother was here too. He is here more often as he only lives about 1/2 hour away. They were both here the day we had turkey, but there was other kids here that were very loud, and I was much too scared to say hello to anyone. It was much more quiet & calm now. So we got the big kitty tree that I love, and Nana got us some treats. Smitty got his own Yeoww fish toy since I stole his Banana & tore it up, and Maizy got a new cardboard scratcher that she even let us all take a turn on. I was so excited because see I had this little mousie toy that squeaked with a real mousie sound when you played with it. Well I played so much with it that I tore it up & momma had to take it away so I would not swallow the battery. I did not get a mousie, but a chirpie birdie toy!!! He sings & chirps when I hit him! I made sure the other night to play with him at about 3am - so that momma would know for sure how much I love my birdie..ALOT.
I am happy, warm & get so many pets. This was my lucky year that is for sure - it can only get better!
Please everyone have a safe New Year!
