It's Christmas eve and my mom and dad and us kitties (and my birdie brothers) are having a nice quiet evening at home. I am thinking of my sister Taylor, as this is our first Christmas apart in 18 years. I miss her dearly as do Mom and Dad. Also, I miss my brother Buddy who is at Rainbow Bridge as well.
I, and my siblings, thank you for all the Catster gifties, p-mails and gifts. It has been a wonderful Catmas time for us all!
From my mom: I want to thank all my friends on Catster who have been so caring this past year with Taylor being ill and journeying to the Bridge, and with Tigger being ill with CRF. It means so much to have your support.

Because of the new features on Catster, many kitties were unable to find out which kitties were making diary entries. Some were asking after the kitty whose mom has cancer. Her name is Mawse. Her page is: Mawse
Also, dear Sugar (Calvin ~ Knead On's sister) went to the Bridge yesterday. Much love and sympathy to her family; she will be sorely missed. Sugar's page is: Sugar

There is an auction happening to help out a family on Catster who have given so much to so many kitties in need, and now they are in great need themselves. Please visit the auction at: Helping Paws for TWB. Bid high and bid often! :)
Thank you so much!

We all have Halloween pages and primary photos thanks to Karma Kitty's mom! Kitty kisses and purrs to her for being so sweet as to do that for us. We love you!

Thank you! Thank you so much for all the birthday well-wishes, gifties, pmails, and gifts for my birthday! I wanted to take a moment to let you know how special a day you helped to make it.
All of my brothers and sisters and I had Fancy Feast Elegant Medleys for our dinner. Mom bought several flavors that she thought I would like, and I got to sample all of them. My siblings loved sharing in the birthday dinner! We also had Pounce treats for desert. :)
Since I don't play with toys anymore, but I love catnip, we had a catnip fest in the evening after dinner. Mom sprinkled it all around, on our cat tree and scratch mat. Everyone partook of it and we lay around afterward and had a grooming session.
I was so mellow I even let Bob lay upon my Heated Wellness bed that my niece and nephew, Zoey and Zack, sent me, and I didn't even smack him! Mol
We had the greatest day and Mom had so much fun opening my gifties and such on Catster!
Love to all of you,

I forgot to tell you that my blood pressure was normal at my last checkup. So, unless I'm not feeling well from my CRF, I don't have to go in to the vet every single month. So, good news!
P.S. I'm really enjoying our new home! Mom feels so grateful and blessed that I have survived the CRF and high blood pressure thus far, and that I was able to experience the move. I am very brave...I was the first kitty to explore our new house. Mom knew I would be! :)

Mom and I just got back from my checkup. I gained 9 ounces in the past month! My vet and mom are really happy, and so am I. Being off the renal diet has its pros and cons, but putting on extra weight is a good thing in my case. And, I am actually enjoying my regular food!
The vet techs did my blood pressure check in the exam room this time with Mom present. My blood pressure was on the low side, so Dr. Ginny is adjusting my medicine down. Mom suggested since I get stressed being taken to the back and having my pressure taken, that future blood pressure readings be done in the exam room with her present. Hopefully this will give a more accurate average.
My next appointment is in four weeks. I will have another blood pressure check and a mini-blood panel done to see where my BUN and Creatinine are at. I will keep you posted.
Please keep the prayers and purrs coming!
Love and Kitty Hugs,

Dear Catster Friends,
I had my check up on Thursday. My high blood pressure problem is starting to resolve with the medication, but it's still a tad high, so my Norvasc has been increased. The main problem is my weight. I lost 5.5 ounces this past month. The vet believes it is due to my CRF and my age.
Mom told my vet that she wanted to let me eat the food I want to eat, instead of the renal diet which I only tolerate, and to let me enjoy whatever time I have left. My vet agreed this would probably be for the best and that she would help keep me comfortable.
Mom is devastated with the thought of losing me. We've been inseparable for almost 18 years. And with my sister Taylor going to the Bridge just a few short months ago, this is doubly hard.
