Howdy my friends from me Kody with a K and the soon be be a desert kitty!
Sorry we havent' been around as you all know Mom is busy going through everything in the house, MOL what a lot of stuff with her living here for over 30 yrs....kids stuff, parents stuff and of course mom and dads stuff, oh ya kitty stuff.
So I have to tell you I am doing well, no more issues with me peeing, I actually go in our potty boxes now too.
I am eating my special can food, Mom says thank goodness I love to eat because I am her first kitty that likes special diet food. I am now getting a little of the special diet dry that makes me happy too...but Mom has to watch me like a hawk because I will steal food in a heat beat.
Everything is going good here, but what a mess, we have things everywhere as mom tries to get things done for our move and selling our house...I have discovered boxes and what fun they are...we love helping Mom go through things, we are her little helpers...this is so fun.
The other day Mom got me and put this thing around my neck and girth what ever that is, she told me all of us kitties & doggies will have to wear this contraption while we are driving over to our new home in Arizona...wonder why that is Mom...well Kody it is for you all to be safe if we have to get any of you out for any reason or we let you out to walk on your leashes...you see it will take us 6 to 7 hours to get over to Vail, Arizona...maybe more...so it will be nice to stretch our legs and mark.
Mom just hopes I will be OK and not get sick again, she worries about me, Xena and Zeke, soon after we move there Mom will take us to our new vet, unless one of us gets sick and needs to go right away...just hope my new vet is as nice as our vet here, we loves her and we all hate that we won't have her anymore, she is very sad too....
Loves to you all, HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Howdy my friends, well I have to tell you Mom and Dad are leaving us again, yes that it right they are leaving us tomorrow afternoon.
This time they are flying over to Arizona because they have to go pick out all of the things for inside our new house. They are excited to see all of the choices, but not the prices. Mom doesn't like to fly she hasn't flown for 20 years after their long flight when they returned from living in Italy. Hope Mom will be OK good thing is she told us it is only about an hour flight...Poor Mommy if she would take me I would purr for her and that will help her relax...but I can't go!
Now for me, Mom sure hopes I will be OK and not get stressed and have the blockage again. She has told our sitter to watch over me and make sure I am using the box..I will be in an area all alone because I would eat every ones food can & dry...no can do!!!!!and Mom wants to make sure I behave myself and I go potty. She also told my sitter to check the sink & tub around the drains just in case I decide to pee there and not use my box.
Xena and Zeke get to stay in Moms room so they will have peace and quite, also so the sitter can find Zeke, last time he was hiding every time she came to the house. Xena just spent her time in the closet, came out to eat and go potty. Lucky them they get Moms bed to sleep on if they want.
Tu Two and the doggies will be in the same area, but haa haa doggies have to stay in their corral so they can't roam around the house and go potty while no one is here to let them out. They will be in the kitchen!!!if I was out there with them I would be sure to tease them and jump into their corrals so I could steal their food.
So we will be around but can't get on the computer...boy if only I had way to get on the computer what fun I could have.
Wish me luck, we all hope I will be OK and the rest of my fur family too...Mom and Dad leaving us is stressful to us we hate for them to leave us.
Well nite nite friends talk after Mom and Dad get back from Arizona!

Howdy friends, guess I need to say howdy since next year I will be a kitty cowboy living in Arizona like my friend Newman....yes that is right I will be a dessert cowboy!
OK! really now I need to tell you all I am doing much better hooray! I am on CD can food, but not happy I can't have treats or a little dry. I do get a few tuna flakes though. Mom is happy to report that I am finally peeing in the cat boxes, drinking water and eating all of my can. She is still watching over me very closely. When I first came home I was peeing in the tub didn't want anything to do with my box, so Mom put one of the boxes in the tub, now we all use it. Then Mom was in the kitchen getting dinner for us, I jumped up on the counter, went into the sink and yes I peed in the sink right in front of Mom, I wanted to show her I was peeing, but then I did it again the next day...Mom wasn't mad but really didn't want me peeing in the kitchen sink...why not I ask! quick clean up!
Now for Mom she is doing better, her hands were very very sore and swollen. Her finger is still swollen from the cat puncturing one of her blood vessels, guess it will take some time to heal. Her hand with the puncture wounds is doing good a little swollen but butter. She wasn't able to use the computer for days so made it hard for us to be here.
The Animal Services called because Mom, you see Dad did up a report on what happened, here in San Diego when that happens they intervene and the cat has to stay inside. Mom told them that she is her clients cat, that she has taken care of her since 2007, she is indoors only and older, Mom told them too that it was her fault because she knew the cat wasn't big on having Mom pick her up, but she was so concerned about the kitty she knew she had to get her back into the house. So Mom paid the price for not remembering and just wanting to get her clients kitty back into the house. The animals services isn't going to do anything and that is the way Mom wants it...the kitty is up to date on her shots.
The bad part of all of this, Mom passed out after Dad cleaned her hand and put the bandage on for her hand, she told Dad she felt sick, clamy so she sat on the toilet, with the lid down of course, next thing Mom remembers is Dad yelling are you OK....Mom was between the toilet and bath tub confused and don't remember anything. So off to the ER, they did all kinds of test on Mom and everything came back fine...just her hands were a mess....The doctor told Mom and Dad that this happens something when someone has had a major accident happen to them...anxiety!!!!!
So Mom is on the mends too....yes when it rains it pours around here, we just hope it stops raining and no more things happen to Mom...
Mom realizes now that them moving to Arizona and not doing so much all the time is exactly what she needs, but it will take time cause the house isn't even built yet...and Dad won't retire till Sept. 1, 2014 after that Arizona here we come and we will have Mom home with us...
Until then we have lots going on...Mom & dad are leaving us again on Friday they are flying to Arizona they have an appointment to pick things for inside the house and then they will be back Sunday morning..Mom just hopes I will be OK! last time they left I was sick
Well Mom needs to get off the computer her hand is hurting! will talk soon...
hugs and love from all of us!!
Kody, Mom Peggy and family

First me and my family have to thank all of our friends for our gifts for Halloween...MOL there are a lot skeletons on our pages!
Second I have to thank the diary lady for choosing me 2 times for my diary entries....Thank you friends for you gifts, comments and pictures.
Now for why we haven't been here, Mom was hurt, one of her clients indoor kitty got out and Mom tried to get her back in. Now she isn't a cat that lets Mom touch her much and Mom has never tried to pick her up...but Mom knew she had to get her back in the house...
Well us kitties know what happened next, yes that is right the cat attacked Mom, biting and scratching her hands...Mom didn't think she was that hurt, it took Mom 45 minutes to get the cat back in..poor Mom she wasn't thinking when she grabbed that kitty and she paid the price.
Mom ended up having to go to the ER that evening...she is doing better but can't do computer right now her hands hurt her so we will continue with the story another day...we just wanted you to know why we haven't been around...
Oh yeah I am doing better too!
Talk soon my friends we all miss you

Hello my friends, first we have to thank you all for all of your purrs and prayers because they sure do work, friends are what help us day in and day out, if not for you all who knows how I would be feeling.
So I am doing better, but Mom is always watching over me, making sure I use the box how humiliating having her watch my every move. She thinks I am not drinking enough water, I used to always drink water, but since I have been home she has not seen me, but that doesn't mean I am not drinking the water, maybe she hasn't seen me.
I am eating my special food, I protest about not getting a little dry, Mom says no way Kody...
We all just rested this weekend me and Mom were too tired to do much of any thing after the week we both had.
I am just hanging out, sleeping today it is cold here and we have been getting a little rain a good day to snuggle in our beds or with Mom so that is what we are doing.
We are still purring for our friend Platey, we sure hope he feels better now that he gets to go home....I know for a fact there is nothing like Moms TLC....hang in there buddy!
Again thank you all for purring for me, for my COTD honor last week, all of our comments and my pictures.
hugs to you all

Thank you for honoring me today at the COTD! MOL what an honor to bestow upon me! I am humbled and feel so special because you have chosen me, this little, no big orange boy today...thank you for your comments, gifts and for being my friends. Thank you for your purrs and prayers to help me get better...I love you all!
Well I have to tell you home sure brings a whole new light to me, I never thought I would never see my home and family again, it was not fun being at the vet all week...even though I got everyone to fall in love with me!
Oh how I missed my family and laying in all my favorite spots, how I missed being able to sleep on Moms bed and with her...instead I had to stay in a small cage so I wouldn't hurt myself with all the things they put on me, not to mention being shaved!
It took me a while to get comfortable and settle down last night, just as I was falling peacefully asleep Mom woke me up to put medicine in my mouth NASTY!
Then every time I got up and walked around someone came up sniffed me, Tu Two growled at me and ran, the dogs wouldn't leave me alone, Zeke sniffed me and walked away. Mom was always checking on where I was, please Mom I am OK...she told me she has to make sure I pee...
OK Kitties you know that when we hurt trying to go potty we blame the cat box....well that is what I am doing, I won't go into our boxes, no I go into the tub. First Dad found poop in there while I was gone, they kept smelling something, but never looked in the tub. So they figured out it was me..
When I finally got home last night and no one was watching I ran into the tub and peed right over the drain hole. Mom found just a little pee, she wasn't sure how much I peed or if I strained. So she put another box in the tub just for me.
Well I did use the box and there was a lot of pee in there this morning, happy me, happy parents. Right after Mom cleaned the box I went in and did my business and peed more...hooray for me! Made Mom so happy
I am eating my CD can food, but I do try to get everyone's food...Mom says NO NO Kody you can't be eating that food anymore. Not a happy Kody!
Mom left for her Chiropractor appt., then came home and wisked me off again in my carrier, I have to tell you I meowed and meowed all the way! I was checked over, got fluids again and they gladly told Mom I am on my way to getting better. Mom still has to watch me and give me my medication. But I am home and loving it!
Thank you all again for honoring me today, for your purrs and prayers, we do believe in the POTP.....I love you all and thank you for being here for me and my family!

I am home at last and it is about time too....Mom just brought me home, I had to check everything out and I must say everything is the same just as Mom told me.
I am feeling better and I was able to pee on my own with no pain, but Mom has to keep watch over me to make sure I am still using the box.
I had things done to me and things attached to me, I don't even know what they were. Of course I was the hit of the vet office, every one just fell in love with me and I sure put that orange boy charm on, purring all the time and being my cute self. My personal tech who took care of me wanted to keep me, but I wanted to go home with my Mom and family I am there orange boy and there was no way Mom is going to let any one have me.
I must say too that they shaved me in parts I don't talk about and my paw as well, I look funny without my fur, but Mom told me soon all my fur will return so I can strut around proudly.
I was very sick there for awhile, I sure felt the love and the POTP...I even had many kitty angels come sit with me to keep me company....oh what fun we had when no one was around playing & chasing butterflies. I was never alone because of the catster angels and my sisfur angel QT all in pink.
So now I have to eat only CD food, which I am eating but of course I love eating and it is fish...oh boy!!!!! Mom just gave me some and I gobbled it down like I haven't eaten all day, but I have.
I also have medication I have to get by mouth 3 times a day,oh no it is nasty.
I am home now I can relax and get lots of love and attention after all I am the orange baby boy in this house. Wait till Dad sees that I am home he is going to be so happy...Mom has to take me back tomorrow for a quick check to make sure I am peeing and not getting blocked again.
Now me and Mom have to say a big thank you to you all for your purrs, prayers and gifts for me, I really felt the POTP and we sure believe in the power.
Hugs, love and I am home at last, yes home at last...please keep the purrs and prayers coming cause I am still not completely well, but doing a lot better

I GOT THE CALL THIS MORNING FROM HIS PERSONAL VET TECH; SHE TOLD ME KODY DID GOOD DURING THE NIGHT, HE WAS HAPPY TO SEE EVERYONE BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL IN LOVE WITH HIM,HE IS SO FRIENDLY AND LOVES THE ATTENTION AND PURRS ALL THE TIME. SHE TOLD ME KODY IS VERY SPECIAL AND HE HAS A GREAT PERSONALITY EVEN WHEN HE ISN'T FEELING WELL. HE ATE WELL AFTER THEY HEATED HIS FOOD FOR HIM...JUST LIKE I DO FOR HIM...
HE DID PEE DURING THE NIGHT WITH THE CATHETER IN, THEY FEEL HE NEEDS TO STAY ANOTHER NIGHT TO CONTINUE TO FLUSH OUT HIS SYSTEM. NOT SURE IF HE WILL GET TO COME HOME TOMORROW IT WILL BE UP TO HOW HE DOES IF THEY DECIDE TO REMOVE THE CATHETER WHICH WILL REQUIRE THEM TO SEDATE HIM, HE IS ON MEDICATION AND IS SEDATED A LITTLE TO KEEP HIM CALM.
IT WAS HARD LAST NIGHT NOT TO HAVE HIM WITH US AND THEN THIS MORNING HIM NOT BEING WITH ME WHEN I GOT UP AND WHILE FEEDING EVERYONE ELSE. WE SURE MISS OUR KODY AND IT IS VERY SAD THAT THIS HAS HAPPENED TO HIM, HE IS SO YOUNG...
THE ER VET TOLD ME THAT A LOT OF ORANGE LARGE MALES SEEM TO GET THIS, SO THEY WERE NOT SURPRISED, BUT SAID HE WAS YOUNG TO HAVE THIS HAPPEN, NOT SURE WHY, BUT BELIEVE ME WE WILL DO WHAT WE HAVE TO DO TO KEEP HIM WELL.
THE VET WILL CALL LATER TODAY TO LET ME KNOW HOW HE DID TODAY, I WISH I COULD GO SEE HIM, BUT I KNOW IT WILL ONLY UPSET HIM IF I CAN'T BRING HIM HOME WITH ME, SO I WON'T BE ABLE TO SEE HIM UNTIL THEY ARE READY TO RELEASE HIM
I AM SO GLAD I HAVE INSURANCE FOR HIM, ONCE I PAY MY DEDUCTIBLE THEY WILL PAY 80% AND GLAD I HAVE CARE CREDIT...IT IS A SAVIOR FOR ME TO BE ABLE TO DO THIS.
SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE I AM JUST PAYING FOR INSURANCE ON THE KITTIES, BUT ONE JUST NEVER KNOWS WHEN SOMETHING LIKE THIS WILL HAPPEN, THAT IS WHY I HAVE IT, VETS ARE SO EXPENSIVE AND IT STARTS TO ADD UP VERY FAST.
SO IF ANY OF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT INSURANCE I RECOMMEND YOU GET IT, THEN YOU WON'T HAVE TO DECIDE ON WHAT TO DO....YES I WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR SOME OF IT BUT NOT THE THOUSANDS IT IS COSTING TO GET KODY WELL...
I KNOW KODY FEELS YOUR LOVE, PURRS AND PRAYERS AND HE IS BEING VISITED BY YOUR ANGELS TOO...I FEEL MY TALLULAH IS WITH HIM AND HASN'T LEFT HIS SIDE FOR ME.....
THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR COMMENTS, PURRS, PRAYERS AND POTP WE FEEL THE POWER...FRIENDS YOU ARE THE BEST
LOVE AND HUGS FROM ME AND KODY

Kody's Mom here:
Last Thursday before we left to go to Arizona I saw Kody licking and licking, then he went in to use his box. I walked past him, he hissed and growled at me, ran to the rug stopped and licked.
I knew immediately that he was having urinary problems, so I had to take him to the Vet ER near our house he vet wasn't open yet. They checked him out and found that he had mucous blocking him. They removed it and gave him pain medication hoping he would be OK. They explained what they found and what was going on with him.
I brought him home very worried about leaving him with the pet sitter, but he was acting fine. She kept a watch on him as much as she could while we were gone and kept me up to date.
After returning home Sunday evening he was acting like he was fine, till yesterday morning he was doing the same thing. So I called his Vet and they wanted me to bring him in so they could watch over him during the day and check him out. They had to sedate him because after the ER visit he wanted nothing to do with them doing things to him. They did an ultrasound found that his bladder had a lot of stuff floating in there & he was plugged again, they decided to give him Sub Q Fluids, a catheter to help him pee. later in the day I was able to bring him home, he was so happy to be back with us. He was sleepy, but he ate and we watched him, I was up and down all night.
This morning while getting there food ready I turned he was straining to pee on a a rug that Xena likes to sit on, he was there for some time. He didn't want to eat which is so unlike Kody, finally I got him to eat, he wasn't trying to get any more food.
He was already scheduled to go in so they could check on him, so off we went once again to the Vet. I had a doctors appointment as well, so I planned on leaving him there and go pick him up afterwards. Before I got in for my appointment our Vet called.
Not good, his bladder was in larged because he wasn't peeing. They needed to do the catheter again this time it was sewn in so it will stay for several days. She thought maybe I could bring him home, but the Tech called and they feel it would be best if he stays at the vet over night, maybe two. He is not doing well at all. I am so very worried about him he is so young for this to happen.
If this doesn't help him along with a special diet he will have to have surgery.
What I have found out is the large males are prone to having this and Kody is a large boy he weighs 15lbs. now. I never knew this!
Please pray for my sweet purring Kody!
Kody's worried Mom
