Now you've heard it said "I heard it through the grapevine" but in this case we say, "I heard it through the nip vine." Now nip stands for catnip and I know catnip doesn't grow on a vine. But I really wanted to make this rhyme.
Now don't say I'm a gossip, because what I tell is true. I'm dishing all the dirt on my family to you. Well, not all of it...gotta save some for another entry...a bit of suspense for my readers, you see.
Uno is kinda naked on the bottom half of her body and legs. She has psychogenic alopecia (the vet said probably because she's been stressed out with Mom's surgery and everything involved). Uno also likes to steal dog food out of the dog food bag.
Lucy Liu is back in kitty jail again and back on steroids again because of bad diarrhea again. She stays in good condition in spite of it though. The vet doesn't know what causes it but at least it responds to steroids.
Gyselle likes to duck her head under the running faucet and lets the water run down her face. Moose just likes to drink from the faucet.
Dova is the computer geek of the family. He's always trying to mess with the laptop.
Speaking of Dova, I heard Dova, Moo, and Jag are going to get neutered soon, probably within the next week or so.
Destiny's nickname is Mouth and she still hasn't learned what shut up or quiet means. At least she's careful not to step on us when we get in her way.
A backhanded compliment, Mom says some of us who had flea allergy look like cats again now our coats have grown back. She said that includes me. I tried to tell her I was just trying out a new hairstyle.
That's all for now. Thanks for reading. And to whoever whispered, "Gossip queen" at me, I'll get you back next time I write!

To all our Catster friends whose birthdays, gotcha days, anniversaries, bridge days etc we've failed to acknowledge, we would like to apologize to you and ask for your understanding. Its been a tough few weeks with connection problems. We got our connection back on Monday but the last few days Mom has had a lot of things to do and hasn't been able to get online much. Yesterday, for instance, Mom was gone all day, had a lot of work to do, and finally found time today to get online for this short time before she has to be gone all weekend.
When Mom came online now, she found she had missed several friends birthdays, gotcha days, bridge days, etc. and she feels very bad about missing them. We want everyone to know we greatly appreciate our Catster friends and try to acknowledge everyone's special days. So please forgive us when we occasionally miss someone and know that even when we fail to acknowledge a special day here on Catster, you are still in our hearts.
Farrah & everybody else here

Gyselle, Carina, and Kitty Ga-Ga all have adjusted just fine. Kitty Ga-Ga has gotten over her fear of us other cats and now piles happily on the bed with Buddha, Velcro, Uno, Lily, Lefty, and whoever else is there. Carina gets along with everyone now although she's kind of an independent loner personality. She likes to perch in an out-of-the way place and just watch everything going on. Like everyone else, she has to have at least SOME "Mommy time" though. She regularly comes to Mom and gets on Mom's chest and hugs Mom and nuzzles her head under Mom's chin. Gyselle now regularly joins the omnipresent group of cats who nap on the bed. (There's almost always somebody napping on the bed, usually there's two or more of us there.) She still likes to spend most of her time laying on high shelves though, or if nobody else has the spot on the desk by the TV, she will lay on the desk and watch TV. Buttons, Splats, and Gyselle all like to watch TV. Velcro likes to watch TV some, but he likes to watch computer screens even more. Mom has to scold him sometimes for trying to chase her cursor across the screen!
As some of you know, Kimberly who was 16, crossed the Rainbow Bridge May 23 at 10:01 pm. She gallantly fought a war with CRF for over 3 years. She told us she's happy on the other side of the bridge, she's with many of our other family members there and she also said she has many new friends over there. She said she'll soon tell us about some of her new friends there.
Saturday evening Mom brought home this big clumsy noisy creature called a puppy. Puppy? It's bigger than two of us cats put together and it's only about four months old! It's friendly toward us cats. Those of our family who've lived with dogs tell the rest of us not to worry about the puppy, everything's cool but when I see those big puppy feet coming in my direction all I think is "I don't want to get stepped on by that!" The puppy is a girl and Mom gave her a really pretty nickname "Destiny."
I think, once she gets a bit more coordinated, that I could learn to like Destiny. Right now I feel sorry for her because she had the misfortune of not having been born a cat!
