Especially in the mornings, when it's very quiet. I meow at the birdies flying to the birdbath and the birdfeeder. My pawrents like it when I'm out there...they want me to come out all the time, but I only like it when it's quiet (noises really scare me). We have robins and goldfinches and housefinches and morning doves and I like watching ALL of them. Well, gotta go and sleep some more...all this bird watching excitement has tired me out!


Ginger is proud of me

Well, my grammy came to visit over the weekend. She brought her two cats and DAWG. Before Ginger went to the Bridge, it was HIS job to keep them all in line, and show them just who was boss of OUR house. Now that he is gone, the job has come to me....well, I have never hissed or snarled so much in my entire life (at least that's what my pawrents said). Well, after all, I had to let those three know (even though we are related) who was BOSS - especially Coco the dawg. Now, don't get upset...I didn't swat at him or anything...just let him know that HE was the visitor, and not me. Same goes for those two cats...this is MY house, after all, and they do the same thing when I visit them. Ginger whispered in my ear last night that he was very proud of me...and my pawrents said so too! Now I am resting up from all the excitement. All for now, gotta go and sleep! Purrs from Smokey (AKA the BOSS)

I STILL miss my brother, Ginger, and either I meow missing him, or I am talking to him (my mawmy is not sure which, and I'll never tell). I WUV all my catster friends - especially Mr. Sam - he is a cutey pie! I am going to a pawty on Friday, and want to dance and have lots of fun. All for now, gotta go bake catnip cookies! See you!

Thank you, Catster, for choosing my diary last week. That made me feel EXTRA special!!! I meow, sometimes, for Ginger - but my mommy and daddy are giving me LOTS AND LOTS of loving. ! My mommy and daddy still cry over Ginger, and that makes us ALL sad - but we are doing OK. I overheard my mommy talking to the vet clinic, and she said that she is bringing me in for a check up (YUCK) - but, she says it's necessary, so I guess I'll try to be good. Anyway, gotta go and sleep some more. Take care fur friends! Love Smokey


I am all alone!

This time last week, Ginger was not feeling well, so Daddy took him to the vet. He didn't come home right away.... Then Mommy and Daddy came home on Thursday night crying terribly, and it scared me...... They told me that Ginger had DIED...... and have been very sad ever since! While they are being extra nice to me, I miss my brother very much - even though sometimes he beat me up - and I am sad too! My mommy says that we will be together again someday, and that she and daddy love me VERY MUCH, and to be a good girl and stay healthy (or at least as healthy as possible being a diabetic). We miss Ginger, and this makes us appreciate our catster friends even more! Take care and Merry Christmas everyone!!!!

Well, not sure exactly why she laughed. Anyway, I was sitting on the bed this morning (after being fed) and I started to chase my tail - isn't that what cats do when they are feeling good? Well, my mommy saw me and she laughed and laughed and smiled, and then she said "Oh Smokey, it does my heart good to see you chasing your tail." I guess she is happy because I am feeling fine!So, just thought I would share that with all of my catster friends. Oh, and I am walking a lot better, thank you very much - still glad for my daddy who built me some steps for the bed and couch.


I am doing better

My mom now has me on 3 units of caninulin in the morning and 4 at night. My back legs, although weakened by the diabetes, still work. My daddy built me two steps - one for the bed and one for the couch. So I can now get off the floor, and be where I belong, with more ease. I am also on Vitamin B (just like Ginger) to help any neuropathy in my legs. Ginger can't understand why he can't have my food (my mom says it has too much PROTEIN, and that would really hurt him), so I eat my food, while mom guards me and my dish, and Ginger has to stick to his own food (HA HA HA). All for now - gotta go and sleep more on the couch (and later, the bed).


It's Rough Going

Well, my tail continues (ha ha). I have been on caninsulin for a few months now, and the tincture of gymnema (my mom says it is an eastern type of medication that is supposed to help regulate my blood sugar), and I'm still feeling week in my back legs. Oh, I still purr and play a little, but walking is hard. My poor Mom - she felt so bad a few weeks back. She took me to the vet for something called a glucose curve - and the technician discovered that my mom was only giving me 2 units of insulin instead of 3 - and then she felt TERRIBLE - my glucose and fructosamine had gone up instead of down! Hopefully they will be able to get me on track - it's certainly not because everyone (including me) isn't trying! The vet and techs and my parents are so good to me - oh, and now I weigh the same as my brother!!! Say some prayers for me, and my mom returns them to you. Kitten kisses and purrs from Smokey. (P.S. Don't tell her, but I am taking Smokey for a glucose curve on Saturday - she'll probably have to stay the whole day at the vets... pray hard that she doesn't get hyper.... Smokey's Mom)


My Tail of Devotion for Smokey

Smokey, you have always been the quiet, alone one. You pick and choose the people you will come out and visit - and you like the quieter friends we have. You have always been in the shadow of your brother Ginger, but not really. We have always appreciated your quiet (but NOT standoffish) ways, and love and affection you show us with your little noises. Now that you have diabetes, you have been so good about getting needles - never a twitch or trying to run away. Thank you for being our wonderful furbaby. We love you!Mom & Dad
