Arrival Story:
Julius was one of several stray cats I was feeding at my last residence (near a trailer park). I had him neutered and he just never left, so we took him with us when we moved.

Julius has some bladder issues, and was also diagnosed with diabetes in Dec. 2007. He's had several remissions (where he's been off insulin) but has been on insulin shots continually since July of 2009. He was also diagnosed in Nov '09 with anterior uveitis, a chronic eye condition, and will need eye drops likely forever. He is very affectionate and loving, and never underestimate his intelligence!

Lives Remaining:

My eye is sick

As you can tell, since my last entry almost 4 years ago I've had problems with my eyes. The one I wrote about last was my left eye, it was pretty sick for a while, then got better, then got worse (I found out I also have something called herpesvirus that likes to eat at cats' eyes, and I got a big fat ulcer that looked like a map of Asia, whatever that is). It got better again and I did great for almost 3 years! I didn't have to drive a looooong way to the eye vet place except 2 times a year. Then the first of April my OTHER eye got sick. It didn't hurt, it just was pink where it should be yellow. So, off to the eye vet, more meds which didn't work this time and helped me get another huge ulcer. Those things HURT! It got better, then worse, then all the way better. BUT, that wasn't the end of it. I got yet another huge ulcer two weeks after the first one went away, and this one is refusing to leave. The problem is they can't treat both of my eye problems together, because what makes one better makes the other one worse. Plus I have diabetes and that makes things harder. The eye vet said I'm a challenge. I don't think that's a good thing. I would like to NOT be a challenge, but I'm not sure how to go about doing that. My poor mom is at her wit's end and her eyes leak a lot. Sigh. I wish I could get new eyes.


I got an honor, I think

Last Saturday, my mom noticed that I had a pinkish spot in my left eye. She called one of her vet bosses (yes, she works for the enemy, but she gets a nice discount on our treatment!) who came over and looked at my eye, but she couldn't see the pink spot. Mom decided to just watch it. On Monday at work she mentioned it to the other vet bosses, and the head boss said to bring me in and let her see it. After looking at my eye, she called the special vet who is an expert with eyes, and he said he better look at it, too. So, we had to ride in the car for a loooong time to go see the eye vet. It wasn't bad since mom let me out of the carrier and let me lie on the car floor at her feet (don't worry, dad was driving). The eye vet said I don't have the very bad thing, just the not-so-good thing. I have to have eye drops that aren't too great on my diabetes but will hopefully fix my eye.
The head vet lady was off today but called mom to check on me. She said she wants all the other vets to see my eye, because I'm an "interesting case study." I think that must be a good thing, if everyone wants to look at me, right?


Summer Tag!

I was tagged by my newest orange pal Fuzz!

Here's how to play the game. It's summer time and there are lots of things to do during this time of year. We would love to hear what you like to do during the summer. List 5 things you like to do and then tag 5 furiends! If you can't participate, I won't be offended, but join in the fun if you like!

The things I like to do in the summer are.......

1. Go walk around in the front yard (except mom puts on that stupid harness thing!)

2. Hunt for birdies!!!

3. Sit under the big huge hedge by our front door and watch things through the leaves.

4. Sleep on my favorite fuzzy blanket when it's too hot to play.

5. Wait for mom to give me leaves from the catnip plant in the backyard (it's hanging too high for me to get them myself).

Okay, here's who I will tag:
