Arrival Story: My future pawrents were thinking about getting a companion for Mallow, and because she was nervous about other cats a few people with more than one cat told them a little boy kitten would work best. One night my Dad was on the phone with a guy he knows, when the guy said "just a minute. I have to go get my daughter, she's carrying the kittens around again." Dad said "Kittens?!" and the rest is history. They had to give my fur Mom Mocha a couple more weeks to take care of me, then when I was ready they came and took me home with them. They let me sleep in their bed that first night so I wouldn't miss my Mom & siblings, and I have slept there every night since!

☆ Cat of the Month June 2012 - what an adventure! ☆
** Cat Rescue of the Month July 2012 **
Mom & I are doing pretty good with the needles, and I don’t complain too much about it. I growl & grumble a bit but I do that about getting my claws trimmed too. Overall I'm feeling a whole lot better over this past week, and I've gained a few ounces back since Monday when I had lost so much weight so fast you could feel all the bones in my spine. I have a huge appetite right now to make up for it, and Mom makes sure I get lots of food.
In fact, I had a face-off with Evie this morning over the kitchen food dish. The week I was not quite myself she had taken to walking in and eating out of it, that's something she has never done before in the five years she’s been living with us. Angel Mallow only ever allowed ME to share that dish with her, and now that I've inherited it I only allow Mojo to share it with me. So this morning I caught Evie in there crunching away and I ran her off. Don't get me wrong, I like Evie just fine, but a guy has to preserve order, after all!
On Tuesday I have to spend the day at the vet to get my blood checked over & over to see how well the insulin is working, then we figure out a plan from there.
went pretty well. I’ve had two insulin shots so far and they weren’t too hard on me OR on Mom. She stressed most about making sure to get the dosage right, checking & double checking.
But get THIS ... yesterday after we got back from the vet where they showed Mom how to do the insulin, Mom dumped the litter out of one of our boxes. Then she washed it. Then she put this funny litter in it that the vet gave her, not even enough to cover hardly ANY of the bottom of the box. I tell you, I am not sure we should trust these vet people if they don't even know how much litter to put in a box! Then when she left to take Dad to dialysis they shut me up in Big Bro Joe's room with my fountain and that box with the weird litter.
Well I tried to hold it but eventually I just had to go. Darn litter the vet seems to like sure didn't do much! But when Mom got home she made a fuss of me for being a good boy and then ..... she poured the pee into a bottle! Then she put the regular litter back in the box, guess she thought the other stuff was crummy too. Then she put the bottle of pee into the FRIDGE! Where the FOOD lives! You know, I think Mom is seriously going off her nut big time. The stress is getting to her. All I can say it it’s a good thing Dad is gone today and we can all relax.
It started when Mom noticed bigger pee clumps in the litter box. Took her a while to figure out who it was (well, little 9 lb Mojo Blackbear was ruled out pretty fast) and they noticed me drinking more than usual. Then came the kitty zits. Mom took me to the vet the beginning of July and she mentioned that I was drinking more than usual, but geesh, it WAS a really hot summer after all. At 18 lbs I’d lost a couple of pounds since my last visit, but that was last October , back before I got an energetic little sister to play with. AND who aces me out of my food.
Well the summer went on, those darn kitty zits just would NOT heal and then I started to go off of my food and last weekend even my water. Mom had to give me Pedialyte over the weekend, then she got me into the vet first thing when they opened yesterday. They weighed me and everyone was horrified that I was down to 15 lbs.
They gave me fluids and some special wet food, then took some blood tests. I’m doing really well yesterday & today, and I feel like eating and drinking again thank goodness. The test results came in today it turns out that I’m diabetic. Today Mom & I went back and they showed her how to give me insulin. I was pretty good about it, and I think we’re going to manage okay. Wish us luck!
