It was great to read the positive comments after my diary entry yesterday.
After all a place is only as fun as you make we have work to do.
Mom said she will try and come on more often, she does spend time on Facebook, she likes to network animals needing out of kill shelters in the USA, its a way she feels she can help and chill out playing the games. Catster is the cats site, our site, for us to chill out and network.
Mom has also got a trying job and Tilly mint to look after, oh, I nearly forgot, she is hand rearing a baby wild bunny, it was about a day old when mom got it, nearly 3 weeks ago and its doing fine, unfortunately, there were 3 to start with but 2 died after 4 days.
Tilly Mint went to the vets this eve for a check up. Tilly got stressed out while she was there, so now mom dosnt have to take Tilly unless its urgent. Tilly is losing weight she was 4kg, shes now 3.5kg. The vet wasnt too worried about it as she is a Tiny cat, but Tilly is getting picky with her food so she has been given an appetite booster. Considering Tilly wasnt expected to get over her operation, shes doing very well, breathing still laboured but meds are keeping the fluid of her chest.
As with the new addition to the family.....Mally... boy that cat cant half put it away. He lives to eat, I think hes on a par with The Catfather's mouse pouches.
Perhaps The Catfather should have his girth measured and see if anyone can beat it.
Hang on a minute???? Could The catfather have a twin? like the film 'Twins'.....they both live to eat,get stroppy and it has turned out Mally is deaf too!!! Welcome to the twilight zone....dodododododododo!!!

I haven't been here since I left for the bridge as mom found it so hard BUT it has come to our attention that something is going horribly wrong with Catster.
What is going on????
Our friends are leaving!!!
Friends falling out with other friends!
Some of the items Catster has posted on its site have been in poor taste and upset a lot of cats, some of whom have left.
Cats are having to watch what they write in fear of someone taking it wrong way.
I have even heard whispers of bullying.
Where is the fun, the parties and the play dates. The easy going site that I joined years ago.
Nearly everyday, one of our friends is leaving, some are hardly on at all any more.
I am so sad to hear that many of my friends are sad.
I just dont know what to say.

I ate a whole pouch of food for my supper tonight, its the most I have eaten in a week. Mom and dad were so happy, I like seeing them happy and not worrying. The next step, is to see if I can go off the pain meds and see how I go before using them again. Mom will wait until she has a day off before she does that, so she can keep a close eye on me. My meds for draining my chest will never stop, but they are so small I don't notice mom giving them to me.
Taking one day at a time, mom says, I say, that im taking one sleep at a time. Mom has put water bowls in every room so I don't have to go far to get water, and I wont get out of breath too much and litter trays are always close by but I have been known to leave it too late to get to one and left a puddle on the floor.
I haven't been allowed out in the garden for a couple of days as it has been very wet and windy and mom doesn't want me to catch anything, its fine by me as I don't do wet! Could do with The Catfather and his mouse pouches to keep the draft out, MOL!!
Off to put my paws up, night all.


Thank you

Thank you to all of you who have sent me gifts, left messages and posted on forums sending me purrs. It is greatly appreciated by myself and my mom, it comforts us to know some many of you care.
I dont give up easily, I have had 2 car accidents, 3 homes, lost a leg to cancer and now a lung but I am still here, fighting.
I have got thru the last week and I seem to be winning this fight, maybe not the battle but I will take one fight at a time.
The fluid that collects in my chest is from my left lung that no longer works but my meds seem to be working in draining it away which means I have to get up and pee more. I have anti-biotics at the moment just as a precautionary as I am at a low point and I dont need to fight anything else. I havent been eating much and have been very quiet and reserved, even hiding at way at times, so it was decided to start me on my pain meds just incase I was in pain and was trying to hide it. The pain meds have helped and I am now more comfortable and eating a bit more. Mom wasnt happy about starting them so soon but at this time she is happy they are helping and I might not need it all the time once I have stabilised more after this last week. I dont lie all humped up now when I sleep, I sleep as I used to before all this happened. I get around, maybe slower than before and I have to sit down and have a short rest quiet often. I have also started to loose weight, so my mouse pouches are sagging!!!
On the good side, my right lung is looking good and healthy and hopefully with the help of my meds I will be around for a while, I have to be, who else is going to take the mick out of The catfather?
Its been a long, hard, stressful week for mom, esp when she thought she was going to loose me on monday. Mom gives me an hours Reiki treatment everyday, it helps me to relax and have a deep restful sleep .By the way, I am very proud of my mom, she is now a qualified holistic animal healer, she received her diploma shortly before I became ill.
I have to thank The Catfather and mouse for adding me to the purr forums and keeping my friends up to date.
I heard a whisper yesterday that The Catfather got scared, but I will not say more as he has bigger mouse pouches than I do now!!
I will try to do my diary often and keep you all up to date on how things are going.
Thank you all again, you are the greatest.
Thank you QT for sending butterflies, you are always in our thoughts x.

Merry Christmas everyone.
We hope you all have a purr-fect day and dont over do it on the turkey, Blizzard!
Thank you all for the gifts to all of us, sorry we have not got around to giving any out. We havent had the internet for a while and also the sadness of cousin purrdies sudden journey to the bridge and now cousin Sheba is very poorly and will be making her journey soon, its been hard.
This year mom dosnt have to go to work on Christmas day, the first time in 6 years, she will miss seeing all the animals but she went in this eve and saw everyone.
We have missed you all and hope to catch up very soon.
Better go to bed soon because santa paws will be here soon.

I am in a huffy mood!!!! I go out side for a wonder and then inspect the garage and the rabbits, make sure everything is up to my satisfaction, then I find my look out spot and settle down. Everything fine, no problems, so I start to sing........well thats what I call it, mom comes running out, grabs me and puts me back inside. This happens everytime I sing!!! Mom says I dont sing, I scream and she has to get me in before the neighbours complain!! Humans today...they just dont recognise talent when they hear it. I can do this several times a day, I dont get bored and it keeps mom on her toes.
Thank you all for my birthday gifts and messages, I had a nice day and chicken to end the day on.
Talking of cousin Da Vinci says he gets real live chickens come into his garden, he likes to watch them, he would like to chase them but he says they poop everywhere and he dosnt want to get poop in between his toes, he cant chase and look at the ground at the same time. Me thinks hes the chicken!!
Apparently The Catfather has 6 chicken pouches!!!

If Your Cat Could Talk ....

This is what he might say:
Although I am too proud to beg, and may appear to be a very independent creature, I ask for your loving care and attention.

But this is what he'd probably mean:
I'm the boss, serve me.

Might say:
I rely on you for my well being much more than you may realize.

What he really means:
Go out and earn money to keep me in the style to which I intend to become accustomed.

Might say:
This I promise you, my benefactor, that I will not be a burden on you nor will I demand more of you than you care to give.

What he really means:
The more attention I get, the more I want. You may have to hire another slave for me.

Might say:
I will be a quiet peaceful island of serenity for you to gaze upon; a soft soothing body to caress, and I shall purr with pleasure to rest your weary ears.

What he really means:
I will tear round the house smashing ornaments at 3 a.m., infest the house with fleas, and bite your mother when she comes to visit.


Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Birthday to ME!!!!!

I would like to wish all my catster furriends a very happy thanksgiving. We dont celebrate it over here but today we have been thankful for all your friendship and support thru the good times and the bad times.
The 4 whatevers, me me and me!!!! could be because it was 4 days till thanksgiving or 4 days till my birthday or 4 days till i was back on catster a bit more or the 4 ouchies I have! take your pick, they are all free!!!
Seriously guys, we would like to thank you for all your gifts and support we got when Ollie passed over the bridge. It hit us harder than any off us expected, and mom still cant go and update his page, its still very raw and will be for a long time, he was one very special little boy.
Hey, Blizz, how many mouse pouches after today? or are they more moose pouches!!! Hope you guys are OK, we were so sad to hear about Tigger and wish we could have all come over to say our goodbyes.
While we have been away, not much has happened, Fox swallowed an elastic band, dont know why, but then hes a red head, he pucked it up the next day, you never seen a mess like it!!! a couple of weeks later, mom heard a noise in the bathroom and fox had pebble dashed the bath and it had bits of elastic band in it. mom does not know where these elastic bands came from as we dont have them in the house! Mom now goes on band patrol to make sure there are no more around. If he swallows another one we could always wind him up and see how fast he goes, MOL!!
Timmy has been to the vets, he was poorly, turns out he has a low immune system, poor chap, he already has a grain allergy.
Mom has adopted a gerbil and at the moment is rooting around in its cage, minding its own business and it is being very closely watched by Tilly, cairo, timmy, tommy and ziggy.
Thanks guys for your gifts and birthday wishes, we got chicken for supper tonight and yes we do have Turkeys over here!!!
Happy Thanksgiving, hope all have a safe day.


would just like to say.....

Another wet day, more leaves falling.
I have slept most of the day, I kept dreaming of something large, white and furry that was taking over the world, it had an evil chortle, as it planed world domination, could it be.........The catfather????? The first thing I did when I woke up was to check I hadnt been flattened by the big white beast and its 6 mouse pouches. I was fine, still in one piece, well, still missing a leg but I have given up on that growing back.
Only a short entry today as this is Circles day and Orange Ruffy left a lovely poem under one of her pics so mom has put it in her diary.
Stay safe guys.
