Thank you all you nice kitty friends of mine who gave me birthday presents today. Also thank you to everyone who gave me Easter gifts. Sorry I'm late writing that thanks.
I don't write in my diary very often because I'm one of the quiet well-behaved kitties around here. I like to spend most of my time either on Mom's bed or on the new cat tree. My lifestyle simply isn't as dramatic or exciting as Uno's & some of our other family members lives are. However, I do appreciate all my friends, my diary honors, treats, gifts, rosettes & all the love & caring these represent. BTW I'm not trying to show off by leaving my airplanes picture as my main profile photo.
Although I can't see them very well, (I can only see a little bit with my right eye & my left eye is blind) I love those beautiful airplanes so much I wanted to keep them as my #1 pic. In my MINDs eye & my imagination I can see anything I want & pick the color of airplane I want & fly it on all sorts of interesting adventures I want. As I lay peacefully quietly on Mom's bed, I'm often off in my imaginary world where my vision is perfect & where I can do anything I want to do.

Thank you so very much Catster, for honoring me with the Diary of the Day award today. Thank you everyone for your pretty rosettes, hearts, ribbons, treats and all your positive friendship, love, and encouragement. You made me feel like a princess today! Thank you for recognizing that a little mostly blind plain white kitty is just as smart and good and worthy as all the handsome colorful beautiful kitties out there who are blessed with two normal eyes that actually work right.
The biggest thank you of all goes to every one of you EARTHLY ANGELS who adopt Special Kitties (Kitties with disabilities) and give us special kitties the loving forever homes we need so desperately and have such a harder time getting!
Mom got us a big new cat tree today. It has about 6 shelves on it, I think. Since I got the DOTD today, Mom let me be first to scratch on one of the sisal wrapped posts of the new tree. I didn't want to climb on it yet though. I'll wait until Righty and Uno and some of the other kitties climb it and tell me what's where and how to get around up there before I try it.
Phew Lucy, what have you been eating? Mom's got Lucy in here with us while Mom's helping me type this and Lucy just emitted a very loud odoriferous blast of backfire gas! It was so loud it startled me a bit. I turned around suddenly which made Mom laugh. Mom said I looked like I was checking to make sure I wasn't the one who did it!

While Uno concentrates on cooking up more mischief to test (and perhaps strengthen) my patience with,
While Righty tries to pretend that instead of being Uno's co-conspirator, she's only there to observe what Uno's up to,
While Lucy Liu lays in the middle of the living room floor stubbornly refusing to budge,
While Buddha in his infinitely patient way tries to encourage Lucy to join him in a Turbo Scratcher game,
While Splat Cat intently watches TV,
While Lily snores in her bed,
While Gabriel audibly hacks up a hairball in the other room,
While Uno, Righty, Velcro, Buttons and Little Skittles turn their energies to engaging in a pretend horse race complete with the sound of galloping feline "hooves" around their oval racetrack through the house,
Lefty, the Well-Behaved One, asked:
"Mom, I try to be as good as I can be here in my earthly life. You don't see me racing wildly around the house, chewing cords, stealing food, or doing any other things those other kitties get in trouble for doing. Why can't you earn your angel wings for being a good kitty on earth? Why do you have to shed your earthly body and cross the Rainbow Bridge in your spirit body before you can become an angel?"
I replied, "Lefty angels are perfect and nobody is ever perfect in earthly life. It's on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge where you become perfect and that's why you must cross the Rainbow Bridge to earn your angel wings. Earthly life is like a school where all must strive to become better. Crossing the Rainbow Bridge can be compared to graduating from school. You have to complete school to graduate and receive your diploma. Likewise you have to complete the school of your earthly life and cross the Rainbow Bridge to graduate and receive your angel wings."
"But Mom, I'm as perfect as a kitty can be," Lefty stated.
"Lefty, let me ask you...who was sitting on the kitchen countertop with Righty just the other day? You two know that you're supposed to stay off the kitchen counters yet I clearly saw both of you side by side sitting on that countertop," I pointed out.
"Maybe you were seeing double and it really was only Righty sitting there," Lefty replied.
"Lefty," I said, "I know what I saw. You two don't look that much alike. You have eye damage on opposite sides. Your coat is thicker and a bit longer and plusher looking than Righty's. Righty has a sleeker harder more Siamese textured coat that hugs more tightly against her body. So don't try to give me the seeing double excuse. It won't work any better than your "mirror image" excuse does."
"My point is this, Lefty," I continued. "You are a very well-behaved kitty but you've got a long time yet to live and a lot of lessons yet to learn before you graduate from the school of earthly life. And I for one want you to take your time, don't get in any hurry to graduate, In the eyes of us humans, you kitties spend far too short a time in the school of earthly life and cross the Rainbow Bridge and graduate way too soon as it is."
"Ok," Lefty concluded. "I guess I shouldn't be in any hurry to get my angel wings but...Mom, since I can't have my angel wings until I go across the Rainbow Bridge, may I have an airplane so I can fly high and fast like an angel now?"
