Arrival Story:
Sydney is the ultimate smoozer. He started hanging around a good year before we adopted him. He was so ragged, scarred and malnutritioned. He had this huge head and skinny body. His fur was matted and dull but he was sooo loveable. He would jump into your lap and put a paw on either side of your neck and lay his big head against our cheeks and purr like there was no tomorrow. A true little suck-up/Romeo. Hey, who could we had him neutered and got his shots and now he lives with us and has for the past 4 years...which is not a treat for my other two cats. They despise him. Austin is afraid of him and Jasper sort of tolerates him. It is sooo sad.

Well, Syd does have an annoying and smelly prob. He sprays IN the house and it is awful. We have tried everything but drugs to stop this habit--even the vet doesn't know what to do. Hey, if anyone reads this and has any suggestions we are open to them. Besides that Sydney is a very lovable cat. My favorite song that my "maw maw" sings to me when she and I do "huggies": "Baby I love my sweet Sydney.........."

Hi Folks
Well I am in awful pain dragging my right back leg and my mama is happened out of minute I was my cute self tapping her leg with my paw and the next minute I cried as the pain hit me and I no longer could walk on all fours as I was dragging my right back leg. The vet gave me a pain med shot and gave my Mama a few for over the weekend along with the emergency vet address.....I am so scared and so is my Mama....because the vet said now that I have had one clot it is darn sure I will have another and could die at anytime...or be in so much pain that I will have to be euthanized.....This is SO unbelievable that I can't really grasp this horror and neither can my Mama.....what are we to do????? I love my Mama and she loves me so much that her heart actually hurts she said. She also isn't sure what to do....give me more get the circulation back in my leg or what to do....This is so frightening for us! :(


What a year it has been

December 17th 2014 7:08 am
[ Leave A Comment ] I am with just my parents.....Jasper is gone, Austin is gone and my life as I knew it at my home with nearly 5 acres...ALL GONE! I am now an only fur kid.

A year ago my brother Austin left us....I actually was sad....I mean he never did like me but we got to a point where at least we were company for each other so I was never alone. For the first 2 or 3 years of my life I knew what it was like to be alone, cold and hungry....and then I decided to adopt this family and at first it kind of stunk to have to share with 2 other cats who didn't want me around but my Mama and Pop gave me so much love, FOOD, and care that I figured I could deal with the other 2....but still I wished I had all of the I have all of the attention but when my parents are gone I found I don't like being alone....somehow it was comfort to know that Austin was in the house with me....or even laying 5 feet away from me outside in the I am alone so I found my voice again and nearly every morning I cry until my Mom gets up to wait on me. So...that was a year ago that Austin left me....and then there was the move which I wrote about....8 months ago I was ripped away from the only home I ever knew to be taken to a larger home 200 miles away....It is a nice house with lots of places to hang out but I am still sad about being ripped away from my old home where I had unlimitied outdoor privileges in that beautiful huge yard with so many trees and wildlife...a cat paradise believe me!!! I also miss my Aunt who lived next door and took care of me when my parents left was so good! I am adjusting to this new place with a smaller yard and one of my parents guarding me when I do get to go outside. I do get ALL of the attention in my new prison but I miss my old home so much. My Mama keeps telling me how much she loves me and what a good boy I have been but still I miss my old life at my old home. I do get to do one thing that is really nice tho at this new place....I get my own special chair and get to have the fireplace on whenever I want so I can curl up by it on my chair and dream of my younger days........well got to go snooze now.....till later....Sydney Romeo


So many changes

Dear Diary (and fellow fur pals) within 5 months I lost my house pal Austin and though he didn't like me it was still fun to have him around to thing..... I had to pack my bags cuz my mama and papa were moving 200 miles away....with me of course....but now I have lost my pal and my home and territory (outside nearly 5 acres of trees, birds, squirrels, chipmunks and my mama's neighbor/best friend who also happened to be my babysitter who loved me)

Mama was so proud of me because i didn't make a peep the whole time i was in the car driving so far away...... I was in my extra large kitty camper ...complete with soft blanket and though secure I could see pretty much everything....and then when we got to the new place I ate and used my 1 of 4 litter bathrooms......I have figured things out pretty well and have been a model kitty....BUT I don't have the freedom I used to have going outside by myself whenever I pleased nor do I have my babysitters porch to sleep on when I felt like it....tho I do have access and the freedom to go from the house to the screened porch and upper deck outside complete with my own lounger/food/water and another litter bathroom....but guess now my hunting days are over.....and this makes not only me sad but my Mama too....She feels so bad that she had to take me away from the home I loved and lived in my whole life.....she cries sometimes because she feels like I am not happy....and she worries cuz I lost another quarter of a pound ( in my prime I weighed 16.5 pounds and now I am a mere 12.25 pounds....half a pound lighter then I was right before we moved 4 months ago) I still eat and want my chicken in the evening....I just don't really eat much if any of the dry food I used to love......but I do eat more wet food then I used to......I don't know ....I went to my new vet yesterday and since my last visit at my old vet in March I seemed to have acquired an irregular heartbeat and my blood test showed a slight elevation in the Kidney part of me.....the new vet said that both of these things are not unusual for an old guy like me.....tho I still don't know my real age...I am either 14 or that really old to have something like that? My pal Austin didn't develop his heart murmur till he was 16....I don't have a murmur tho so I guess that is good news. The vet also said I need teeth pulled as they have cavities ect......he said my old vet should have seen them when he fixed my abscessed tooth a year I can't have my teeth pulled as the irregular heartbeat could mean I have some heart problems which means I can't be put under anesthesia to fix my teeth problems...this also upsets mama cuz she is afraid I am in pain....tho again I do manage to eat like usual. ( the vet told her not to worry cuz cats don't really use their teeth to chew.....really????) What is the crunching noise then when I do eat something dry? Sorry I am all over the place here but mama wants me to be happy and she isn't sure that I am....and she so doesn't want to lose me and constantly hovers over me.......she has provided me with lots of comforts like benches at all the windows so I can look out or sun myself plus I told you about my porch and deck amenities ......she also has steps for me so I can easily get on and off of the bed that I no longer can jump onto (my arthritis).
I do get to go outside still sometimes....with my Mama or Papa....I like to lay on the sun-beaten driveway and nap on the warm surface.....I also like to eat more grass then I ever did and of course I then throw it up.....I guess life isn't so bad after all???? Still...mama and me miss our massive and beautiful back yard and our friend who lived next door.........
