Ahh, all of my friends the snow is melting and the rains are a coming. I woke this morning to thunder and lightning, I was so frightened. But thankfully the Human Mama were here to sooth my shaking. I almost forgot all about the thunder, as I am an old kitty and I have noticed several things within the past few weeks. I have noticed that I have a tendency to be afraid of going into rooms that I used to go into, so now my Human Mama leaves a light on for me. I am so happy that she does that for me, I let her know if she forgets because I have been alot more talkative with things when I am afraid. I just let a shout out and my Human Mama comes a running to rescue me. I really love my Human mama, she is so good to me.
I want to update all of you on my medical problems, my thyroid is hanging in here for me. My Mama says that I am doing good. I eat what I want, Mama says that since I am a older kitty I should be able to eat food that tastes good, so she gets me good food. Even though the vet said I shouldn't eat protein, she still gives me protein. because when I ate the diet from the vet, I continued to loose weight and I was sick alot. I still have a tendency to puke, or as my Human Daddy says I take a bit off of the top, but I am eatting, basically a spoonful of food every time I get up from my naps. But as long as I am eating and continuing to put on weight that is what is important. Mama is keeping a eye on my thyroid and feeling my throat area and it has not gotten any larger. So all of the "Kitty Prayers" are continuing to work for me. Atleast they know that I am eating like a lion because of the thyroid because of that, and they feed me almost every 3 hours. But I am happy and continuing to have my bouts of energy to keep myself in shape. I go for my hall walks in the apartment as the Wisconsin weather has kept me indoors, except for the short times out on the porch. But I am looking forard to the walks once the weather warms up. Mama is thinking of getting me a stroller, as there are times that I get really tired from long walks and Mama can only assume that I would have abit of sore muscles and bone with being older.
Well, that's about all that is news in our house, I do hope that all of you are doing well and looking forward to Springtime. I will try to write more often and happy days to all.
Meows and Kitty Kisses to all of you,
Morgan and Her Mama
P.S. I like to get emails, so if you would like to email me, feel free to write, and I promise to write back as when Mama is in bed I can get online and answer your mail, she knows I do that but she doesn't care because she loves me so much.

It has been quite a while since I have written, but like I have said before I have been sick, but this is all that is new with this old gal. I have learned a new trick, I found out that my newest trick is something that my human couldn't believe her ears. For the longest tIme she thought that she was hearing things. That is because I have been watching to much of the "Dog Whisper", I only watch it because some of those dogs are so silly. Anyhow I have picked up this annoying habit of, barking, yes you heard my right, I can bark. Maybe this might have something to do with the fact that I have an enlarged thyroid. But now among my other talents I bark, I bark when my human's come home, I bark whenI want a treat, I bark for various reasons.But anyway that you look at me, I am still cute and now i bark. I am curious if any of you other beautiful felines have this habit, so please let me know if you do as I want to know , because as for now I am the only know barking cat. Maybe I should call that Guniness Book guy and see if I can get into it.
My cousin Diesel has taken a trip, and boy did he take a trip. I doubt that He will want to get into His carrying crate for quite sometime. As when He got into the crate he was in Milwukee, Wisconsin then when He got out of the crate He was in Manchester, England. You heard me right, England, boy oh boy, I am wondering if Diesel will now have a British meow. From what I understand Diesel did not enjoy the trip at all, He got off of the plane and waited patiently to be picked up. Diesel will be living in Yorkshire, England with my Human's son and Daughter-in-law. The first day that He was in England Diesel tryed to play Santa Claus and He tryed to climb up the chimmney to make a escape back to the states. I don't know if anyone has told Diesel yet but there is no way that He's going to make it back to the states unless he buys himself a one way ticket. I don't think that there is any money left in Diesel's kitty account for Him to pay for any trips back to the states. I will miss Diesel, but He has a new friend in England to play with and since Diesel is a young dude, He will have a long and exciting life living in England. Who nows maybe He will be able to visit the Queen Mother, I wonder if she has a Royal cat, if not maybe Diesel could apply for that job. Afterall, I am sure that a commonier could apply for that job, don't you.
I am doing well, eating like a little piglet, I am fond of the turkey that my Human goes to buy for me every week from the deli. I know I am not suppose to eat protein, but my Human says that I am an old gal and I should be able to enjoy the lives that I have left in this world. Instead of being misrable eating all of the no protein no taste food that I get from the vet. Now don't get me wrong but I also eat that stuff, but my Human spices it up with some other stuff that has gravy and tastes wonderful. Anyhow I am eating and that is what's the most important thing, because I don't want to get to skinny, as a thin cat is not an attractive cat.
So to all of my feline friends I say "Meow, woof, woof" and to the drooling dogs that I watch on "Dog Whisper" I say thanks for the entertainment. You dogs are so darn fun to watch and I really do enjoy watching all of your dumb antics. But all animals are creatures of Noah, even though we're not listed on the ships manafest, hey, that is because we're a smaller version of that good old lion, think about it, okay?

I have been sick, I had to go to the Emergency Animal hospital. My Human called the Emergency Animal hospital, and rushed me out there, I was in such pain and my Human was so worried about me. I was having a really awful tummy ache and I couldn't do anything to make it go away.
At the hospital they did all different types of things to me, the first thing that they did that I really hated was that old thermometer up my butt. I would have been a good kitty and let them put the thermometer under my tongue or in my ear, but no they had to go and stick it in my rear end, I didn't even know the girl that did it to me, I was so sick I didn't really care what anyone did to me. But they took my tempeture, and then they took by urine, and no I didn't have to pee in a cup they did another invasive procedure that I didn't enjoy at all. So when they got around to taking some blood from me, i could have cared less because I was so wiped out from being poked in my butt and then being poked in other places.
I got sent home from the hospital four hours after we got there, and the conclusion was that I had something wrong with my kidney's. I was so happy that they sent me home(so was my Human) with some medicine for my tummyache and also some for a infection that they said that my kidney's had.
I went to see my own doctor, Dr. Brian was so nice to me, but they also take my temp. in my rear end. Boy, when will those doctor's learn that cats are very smart and co-operative and we'd be willing to hold the thermometer under our tongues. Someday they'll learn.
Well, anyhow I have been taking medicine for the past 4 weeks for something that the doctor's are calling,"Addison's disease". My Human was very sad when she found out that I was sick, she cried alot and still is quite sad about me being sick. She say's that she can't understand why I am sick because I am such a young cat, and that she doesn't want to lose me. I don't know how she can lose me, especially if she keeps the door closed so I can't get out of the apartment.
Anyhow, my Human says that all of my feline friends and human's should say nice thoughts for me. So that I can feel better and get healthy. The vet put me on a new diet, it's awful, it's called a low-protein diet. I hate it! My Human is trying to find out what I can eat, because this diet is driving me wacky, I have lost alot of weight, and I miss drinking milk, who knows maybe I could drink something like soymilk, ahhh that sounds awful too,but something is better than nothing I suppose. I'll try to gain some weight, oh boy that's something new for a girl, but everyone wish me well.
Hugs and lovings to all,
