My sweet friend Avail 1034890 lost her battle with mammary cancer yesterday. She just had a 4th surgery battling this awful disease, and had a bad reaction to either the fentanyl patch or the surgery, and her little body just could not fight anymore. She went through so much & was a very strong fighter. Her Momma fought right along side her, and she is so very devastated. Fly free of any pain or sadness sweet Avail. We will miss you.

Seems that since I am a bit em combative when it is time to trim my nails, Mom is taking me to the vet Thursday for them to do it. As quiet & meek as I am, I turn into a Tazmanian Devil when any attempt is made to touch my feet. So Mom says this way I can be mad at the vet & it is only about $7 for them to do it. Hope everyone is enjoying your fall!

thanks for the wishes on my ddp Saturday! Momma did see it, she was just busy. Sunday she had our "Annual End of Summer Shrimp Boil" it has been a tradition for about 10 years either late August early September. Momma makes a Low Country shrimp boil with shrimpies & taters & corn & smoked sausage & lots of Old Bay. Our other gramma came & the human brother & his fiance too. They had fun - me - I hid under the bed til every one was gone.

I am a chewer - I love love looove to chew, cardboard, nip sticks, cat chewies & apparently ...wood. A few times in the past, I got in trouble cause I chewed on the edge of the little wooden box we nap in the kitchen. Mom solved that by making sure the blankie in there covers the edges all the time. All was ok, until she went to use some wood conditioner on her wooden rocking chair. Now this is a special chair. It was given to her when she was 18. She stripped the dark finish & gold (ick right?) painting & stripes off of it & lovingly refinished it to a beautiful honey oak. Many books were read- Both of the human kids were rocked to sleep/fed/stories told/bad dreams banished, you get it, in that chair. So what does she find on the back edges of the rockers? the edges chewed up, and some on the front. Of course we all know who the guilty party is, because I like to sleep on the rug under that chair most nights. Momma's face got this funny twitchy thing going, and then she turned to me as I was on the couch "Felix did you chew my chair?" Frankly why she asked is beyond me, because no one else would have done it really. Maizy will nap on the seat, but no one else really even goes by it. I gave my best "yes I am sooooo guilty and yet I am sooooo cute and I promise I will never well not really chew anything again, and did I mention that I looove you momma?" face. Well of course she could not be mad at me, a little sad, but she says "O well, it is a well worn, loved chair, what is a few more marks - that will make me always think about you Felix." She is not sure if she is gonna sand it or not - but maybe someone knows if there is something that can be put on there to discourage me chewing so I don't get any wood in mah belly. There is stuff for doggies, but something safe for kitties. Dang...now I reeeaaallllly gotta be extra cute. Sorry Momma...

Guess what guys? I RAN a little bit this morning!!! Momma almost fell right over! I eat my breakfast in her bedroom with Maizy, and when she got our bowls & said "come-on babies you want your breakfast?" Maizy started to run down the hall, and I ran too! I even kept up with her! I do say I have been strutting around a bit more than usual, aaannnd last night, I stayed on the cat tree when The Dad was sitting in the kitchen chair RIGHT NEXT TO ME! My pupils didn't get all huge like they do when I am scared either! I eventually did slink down & escape, but Momma says it is progress! So I am gonna strut my stuff around a bit more so I can get an extra treat tonite! Oh and the insurance paid some on my surgery too! Momma thinks we will wait to see how my other leg does for a few months first before she considers more operations. And I have been talking alot too - I have lots to say after being quiet for so long!

Thank you for all the gotcha day wishes! ssshhh don't tell, but I got a tiny bite of crust from Momma's pizza Friday as a special treat. We really don't get people food, but once in a while as a super special treat. I crunched that crust up good! Momma is pretty busy with work & getting a new employee, so she will update Maizy & Smitty's pages in a while. And any free time is spent researching trying to figure out what is wrong with my big brother Tigger. Hope everyone is haveing a good end o the summer! I know I AM!! purrs from the Feefer

Well, 1 year ago tomorrow, I got me a forever home of my own! Now being with a bunch of other kitties under the firewood pile was not so bad. I mean it was safe in the yard, and we did get food 2 times a day. And whenever Momma came out, I would come by her & she would talk to me & pet me. That is how she knew I was getting very sick. I never really did get to play with my kitten sibs - now momma knows why. I remember staring at the food, hanging my head down, and being so very hungry, and yet I could not eat. She tried to feed me with a spoon away from the other kitties, but I couldn't eat much & just got thinner. Once the grass was pulled out of my nose, I did feel a little better, but by then the infection was deep in my lungs & eyes, and I was a pathetic little mess of snot & bones. But Momma did not give up on me! She took me to the vet & gave me medicine & told me that I had a warm bed & lots of food, and I would never have to worry about the scary outside any more! I have been having my share of problems - one knee has been fixed, and it looks like I will most likely have another surgery on the other side, but I was such a good boy & I try to be sweet. I really do try not to hiss at The Dad - he is always nice to me, I am just a scaredy guy (and he is bigger than me) I know that most likely this little black cat would not be here today if Momma had not helped me, and every day I make sure to chirp at her & touch her with my paws to say thank you & that I love her so much. I have seen & survived much in my 1 year of life, and I am so happy that I can spend the rest of it with a full belly, a soft rug by the window, and more pets & kisses than I can count. Momma says I am just the little black cat she waited for. And ps she is just the momma I waited for!

woohoo! FUR

My furs are growing in really well. My leg is not nekkid, but little peach fuzzies. I am walking much better too. I still sway my hips bigtime, but that is from my hips having no sockets. I am holding that back leg straighter - not crouching as much when I walk. So Mom feels it was really successful! I go to see Dr. West in a week or so & she will decide what steps to take next. Momma says that if I have to have another surgery, she wants it before my year renewal so there is not another deductible. So far the insurance has paid their portion for my prelim xrays! Mom is submitting my surgery bills now. It took them a while cause it changed from PurinaCare to 24Pet Watch. As long as the premium is paid they cannot drop us, and cannot refuse a pre-existing if it was paid for before. That is why Momma was worried about my legs - that they may decide it is pre-existing. So hopefully they will process this one faster. Keeping paws crossed. THen they will offer a renewal from their company. We are kinda stuck now, cause to change companies, they won't pay anything for Smitty's teeth or my leg.
Momma has been calling me Mr Sassafrass lately, cause I am getting a bit fiesty, which is good. Now I just gotta not hiss at The Dad...working on it....
Have a good weekend all! I know I will!


struttin' mah stuff

I got my stitches out on Monday. Doc says things look great & I can walk around, but still must try not to go up & down stairs. I really want to go down to the landing so I can go out on the screen porch. Momma says that this weekend she will carry me out there & I can nap while she plants her flowers. No more CONE! Seriously Momma said that I went from being depressed to a happy kitty. I was strutting around the kitchen with my tail up & I vibrate the end at Momma when I am happy. Hopefully I may not need surgery on that hip. Dr. West says it is a long road, and time will tell if I need it - we will know in a few months. I came home and ate like a pony! I wasn't really eating alot with that stupid cone. So now Momma said all I have to do is rest & heal & behave. I will try my best! My incision is healed so well, you could hardly see it! & my furs are growing in some. I got a couple of bites of chicken today. Momma said that it is good for growing bones. I spent almost all day Monday after we got back grooming all the spots I could not reach with that cone on. I wore myself out! But I am as sleek as I can be for now. A couple spots are still hard for me cause my leg hurts a little bit, but not bad. I was even able to work on chewing up my NipStick that I was saving. No word from the insurance company yet, but Momma was able to get CareCredit so at least that helps anyways. Thanks you all for keeping me in your purrs & thoughts. Keep em coming, cause it aint over yet. I will probably have my other knee done and not sure about my hippybones. But right now, I am one happy kitten!
