Bio:
Uno is the smallest of my cats, the swiftest of my cats, the most determined, the biggest loudmouth, the most creative & ornery intelligent, & her coordination and accuracy amazes me. I can throw a small bit of cheese and she will leap several feet across the room and precisely land with her forepaw right on it (to make sure no other cat can get it). If I give another cat a bit of cheese and the other cat doesn't eat it fast enough, Uno will strike like lightning and have the piece of cheese and be out of reach before the other cat even has a chance to react! Who knows, maybe being one-eyed gives her an advantage!

Too Much Going On, Too Much Sorrow

July 4th 2014 10:01 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ]

Hard to believe it's now been a week since Mom had her left hip replaced! The hospital didn't keep her very long either. She came home on Monday evening. The pain medicine she has to take makes her sleep a lot but that's ok with us because it just means more time for us to curl up and sleep with her. The only confusing thing is that before Mom went for surgery this time, she had taught us to walk or jump on her left hip instead of her right hip. Now she's stopping us from walking on jumping on her left hip and making us walk and jump on her right instead. Two of our family members had problems while Mom was gone. Shadow, a black cat who is extremely shy and is 14-15 years old, had a stroke (and is recovering fairly well from it) and Maggie a very shy dilute calico who is ancient-Mom doesn't know her exact age, died suddenly. These two cats aren't on Catster because she hasn't ever been able to get any good photo of them (only blurs as they flee from the camera.)

Trudy, one of the newcomers, loves to ride in Mom's walker (Mom has to use the walker for awhile-doctors orders!) as Mom goes around the house.

I had seriously just written the above line and was trying to think of what to say next to close my diary with positive happy things...when suddenly Mom who was talking on the phone to her best friend, suddenly said "I hear a weird noise in the closet" That may give you an idea how very sudden Dova's death was.

This sadly seems to be our time to say goodbye to family members and be left behind as they cross the rainbow bridge. Just a few minutes ago, as Mom was writing this and talking to her best friend, she heard a weird noise in the closet and went in there to find Dova seizuring. Dova crossed the Rainbow Bridge so quickly and so much too young. We're too shocked and too upset by it to say any more now except that Dova will be taken to Purdue University in the morning for autopsy to hopefully find some answer as to what happened to him.

 

How Mom is Celebrating My Gotcha Day

June 24th 2014 6:19 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

Hi! I just wanted to let all our friends know that Mom is celebrating my gotcha day, June 27 in a very "unusual" way. As some of you know, Mom had to have hip replacement surgery on her right hip in January due to avascular necrosis. The doctors don't know why Mom got this problem. She has absolutely none of the risk factors for developing it. Anyway at the time Mom's right hip was replaced, the doctors told her that the left hip was also affected and would have to eventually be replaced too. Mom's left hip was starting to cause her pain and when she went to the doctor yesterday, the doctor looked at the x-ray, told Mom that her left femoral head was in the process of collapsing, and then added that he wanted to do hip replacement surgery on Mom's left hip on Friday, June 27, the anniversary of my gotcha day. So Mom's going to be "celebrating" my gotcha day by undergoing surgery. (BTW, Mom's right hip that was already replaced, is as good as normal. The doctor said it was doing great.)

I will be celebrating my gotcha day anniversary by putting up with Russ taking care of us while Mom is in the hospital again. I intend to con him out of treats Friday, you can bet on that.

It seems ironic to me that I had surgery on my gotcha day before Mom brought me home and now Mom has to have surgery on the anniversary of my gotcha day!

 

My New "Twin Sister"

June 19th 2014 5:59 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ]

Guess what? I now have a "twin sister." She looks just like me except she's just slightly taller than I am. Oh, I almost forgot...she also still has two eyes. Her name is Polly because she's a polydactyl, the first polydactyl Mom has ever had. Mom adopted her from a kill shelter where Polly has been for about a year. When Polly and I are curled up asleep together, it's hard to tell us apart!

When Mom got Polly home, she found out Polly had major coordination problems. Polly has a lot of difficulty walking although she somehow manages to get where she wants to go. She can't jump although shes a very good climber. Although she was able to make it to the litter pan in time when she was caged, when she's loose in the house she has trouble making it to the litter pan in time. Mom put some pee pads down around the house for Polly and she's thinking about having Polly wear diapers. She also took Polly to the vet to see what was causing Polly's problems. The vet diagnosed Polly as having cerebellar hypoplasia (CH). The vet said Polly should live a normal lifespan. Mom's never had a CH cat before Polly so she (Mom) has been spending a lot of time lately learning about living with CH cats.

Polly has a beautiful cheerful sunny personality. She gets along with everyone and the "washing cats" love to wash Polly. Polly is very affectionate and loves to curl up and sleep on Mom's shoulder, which incidentally, is one of MY favorite spots to sleep. However I've learned to accept her stealing Mom's shoulder. After all, my most favorite spot to be is on Mom's chest or lap. I especially like to lay on Mom's lap right between Mom and her laptop. When Mom's not laying down, Polly prefers to lay in a cat bed at the foot of Mom's bed. Mom thinks Polly likes the support that the sides of the cat bed gives her.

Since Polly's no threat to my position as self appointed Queen of the House, I like her!
