OMC, I am the Daily Diary Pick! Mom got up early today before work and happened to receive the email from HQ. :) What a surprise and an honor!
P.S. Mom must have been sleepy because she didn't realize I was Diary of the Day! MOL Thank you friends for the gifties for my page, the p-mails and the pictures!

I was tagged by Tao AKA Pharaoh Princess to play this game. It's the Family Tag Game. Instead of talking about our kitty selves, we talk about our family. :)
Mom: Mom works for a retail company. Mom's hobbies are computing and reading. She likes to read romance, as well as science fiction novels. Mom is not much of a television watcher, but her favorite shows are House Hunters and Dr. Who.
Dad: Dad has worked in retail for the past 25+ years. He used to be a store manager but his company folded and he lost his job. He now works for the same company as Mom does. Dad's hobbies are computing and reading. He likes science fiction and historical novels. He enjoys watching television; Fringe and Dr. Who are among his favorite shows.
That's it; that's my family!

I wanted to update you on my health. As of Saturday, I gained back the 5 ounces I had lost the week prior. Now if I can just stay on an upswing with my weight, that would be good. My appetite is fine and I haven't been throwing up since I started taking the Famotidine (Pepcid). Unfortunately, the other cats sometimes pick on me because I am ill and old. But, Mom and Dad step in and put a stop to it. :) I am doing well getting my fluids at the vet. My attitude has improved about that. So, Mom and Dad want to try to give them to me at home. I'll let you know how that goes.

I was tagged by Art Blakey to play the Lovebug Tag Game! I'm to answer six questions and then tag other kitties to play:
1. Meow! Are you a noisy kitty or a quiet kitty?
I am a quiet kitty except when I am hungry, then I let mom and dad know I want food!
2. Litterbox! Cover your business or let some other kitty cover?
3. Happy! Favorite Daily Routine?
My bed time routine is my favorite, which is when I get to sleep next to my mom.
4. Hiss! Least Favorite Routine?
Getting my nightly medicines! I take two liquid medicines every night for my CRF and related high blood pressure.
5. Ding-Dong! What do you think about visitors to your house?
I love company! I'm not afraid at all.
6. Friends! Do you like other animals?
No, I don't particularly. I loved my sisfur Taylor; she was my litter mate. But I don't like my other brofurs and sisfurs much, except in the Winter time when I let them sleep next to me to keep me warm! mol
Everfurryone is welcome to play if you are reading this and you want to play, consider yourself tagged! Be sure to let your friends know they've been tagged by sending them a message or rosette! Angels can play, too! Tell us about your life at the bridge or your life at home before the bridge!

My vet said my heart murmur sounds better, though not completely gone. I am feeling better being on fluids twice a week, though I certainly don't like the drive to the vet...a windy mountain road, 25 minutes each way. Though, the treatments are keeping me alive and that is what is most important.
I want to mention that my friend Xena Princess Warrior is having surgery today for a breast lump. Please purr for her!

My mom is making me tell you what I did this morning. I christened my grandma's suitcase! Mom has no idea what has gotten into me. I've never done anything like that before. All I can say is that she has two cats and I probably didn't like their smell and wanted to assert my dominance. After all, I am 18 years old! MOL

I had my checkup today. My heart murmur has lessened and I had some more fluids. The vet wants to see me on Wednesday for a recheck. I'll also be going in twice a week for fluids. My appetite is good and I seem to be feeling better. I'll let you know what the vet says on Wednesday.
Love and purrs,

I had a little setback on Wednesday night, but I'm doing better now. My mom took me into the vet yesterday and it seems I needed some fluids to help me feel better. There is good news and bad news. The good news is, my weight is up. I gained some ounces since my checkup last month. :) The bad news is that the vet heard a heart murmur. This is something new, but she thinks/hopes it is due to my being somewhat dehydrated yesterday. I go back to see her on Saturday for a follow-up.
The other good news is that my blood pressure is normal. The change in the amount of medication has helped. It was slightly elevated last month, so the vet upped my Amlodipine.
Mom and Dad are going to start taking me into the vet to get fluids administered, since I won't allow them to do it themselves at home. The vet said that they won't charge for the administering of the fluids, just for supplies, so that helps out financially. :)
Purrs that the heart murmur is temporary would be most welcome.

My mom keeps in email contact with Genny and Elise's mom. She said to let you know that Genny and Elise are doing well and their mommy sends her love to all her Catster friends. Right now she cannot visit Catster because of health issues, but her thoughts are with us.

I am back on my food today, no nausea and no vomiting. :) I also saw the vet. Mom and she had a long conversation about my prognosis. The plan is to see how the Pepcid works and then to start fluids twice a week. Since I am unwilling to let my mom and dad administer them, they are going to take me to one of the vet techs at my vet's office to have it done.
Thank you for the purrs, gifties for my page and p-mails. Thank you Boxie Brown for posting my request for purrs on the purr thread.
