This is my first Diary Pick from the Bridge. Thank you Diary Gal for this honor!

I also thank my following friendsfor their concats, gifts and pirate flags:

1. SMILEY & LUIGI - pawsome pawmail;
2. MILO BLUE EYES - cute bluebird & pirate flag;
3. ANGEL SONNY BONO - pirate flag;
4. ANNA & Family - pirate flag.

It's been a few hours after a week since I made my journey to the Bridge. Mommy's still sad about my passing and at the same time, she's happy that I no longer have to suffer from my declining health issues. Now, at the Bridge, no health issues exist for me or any fur. We're healthy and young again! I'm having a most pawsome time reuniting with my angel sibs and friends. We party all the time and eat whatever we want and never gain weight.

Lastly, I notice that Joss and Landy have bounced back from grieving for me. Merl seems to be taking it the hardest. Mommy and I believe he saw me pass on because that morning when she found my body, he was laying a few feet away from it; he still lays there to this day; not all day long though. I notice that Bail has gotten more friendly and I think it's because he's now the King of the house. He's even sleeping with Mommy more often and has given her nuzzles in her hair like I used to.

Anyway, that's it for now. I got to fly back.

As many of you now know, I made my journey to the Bridge on Friday, September 12, 2014. This was almost two years after Camille Rose made her journey September 14, 2012. Mommy found my lifeless body next to the big cat tree in her dining room. At the base of said tree is a grayish/green figure of a sleeping cat. I specifically chose this spot which wasn't my normal sleeping place on my day of departure (I had gone peacefully in my sleep). Mommy found me with my eyes closed.

I now am with Cam, Bentley, Beeta, Max and Isis (she made her journey five days before I was born).

Anyway, no more pills nor needles for this guy! I'm healthy and bouncing around like a kitten. It's amazing how lovely and warm it is at he Bridge. I also was visited by Mommy's Dad, Stepmom and her real Mom.

Lastly, I flew to earth and had a peak at my page when Mommy looked at it. There's many lovely gifts from my loving and caring friends. Wings, candles and many, many crowns and stars. Thank you all so much! I'll list these individual gifts later on his week, perhaps tonight, time permitting.

Well, I must fly back now. They're having a salmon pawty at the Bridge Seafood Restaurant.

I'm one of the Diary Picks today! That's great news! Thank you Diary Gal for this most pawsome honor!

Also, thank you MILO BLUE EYES & Family for the cool trophy and MAC & IVY for the kitty hugs. Everyone could use a lot of hugs these days!

Speaking of hugs, last week I was in a hugging mood so I gave Leila and Susie (techs at the vet's office) a few big Maine Coon type hugs. They all love to see me when I come for my fluids. They always, ask, "How ya doing, buddy?"

Also. after I get my fluids and arrive home, i want out of the carrier badly. As soon as Mommy opens it, I fly out as if I were shot out of a canon. I then go straight to the kitchen for a second dinner. Yep, my appetite is up! Unfortunately, I'm still skinny as a rail and have been losing a lot of tummy hair. Mommy said I might need to wear a sweater during the wintertime. We shall see about that.

Lastly, Mommy's Dad passed away on August 26th. She'll be going to the funeral services in late September. That means, Leila will be watching us kitties for several days. She'll drop by this Saturday to go over my medication schedule. She already knows how to give me my fluids so that part won't be difficult for her.

Anyway, it's great to see that Catster is starting to heal from the massive flea infestation. That is pawsome news.

Got to go now.

Unbelievable! This is great news! We finally were able to visit the Diary Central at 2:30 a.m. Sunday Sept 7th! So here's my short, sweet note. Talk about a happy cat to that aspect!

Also, angel Bentley was able to add a new photo (number 70), but there was one contradictory note saying he reached his limit of 10. Oh, we'll, it shows that some of the flea infestation is taken care of. Hopefully, things will be ship-shape soon.

Got to run.

This morning, Mommy took me to the vet for my fluids. After Leila and Susie got done, I jumped out of my zip top cloth carrier onto the examining table. As Leila tried to put me back into the carrier, I tried to grab at her shoulders and neck so I could give her a hug and a wet nose nuzzle. I almost accomplished this.

All in all, the fluids have given me a lot of spunk and have increased my appetite. Still, I'm built like a rail and all of us wish I would gain back my lost weight. Maybe I'll do so. I think it takes some time.

Well, I hope somecats can see my diaries. I understand a lot of our friends can't log in at all. Hopefully, these lingering fleas will be gone soon.

That's about it for now. It's bedtime for this old guy.

Bail got in last night without being accosted by the Cookie Monster. I'm lucky today! That's very pawsome news. He didn't have any luck with loading a pic last night. It kept on pausing to no avail. He and Mommy gave up. Perhaps, we'll try again tonight. I also heard via the grapevine that the bio fields are up and running. Is it true!

Anyway, I'm doing better as the fluids perk me up and food is on my mind all the time. One thing though, I have no more interest in dry food and catnip. Both hurt my mouth and teeth.

Got to run and let Mommy finish getting ready for work.

Purrs & Breeps,



I'M IN!!

Well, well, well! I got in to post my diary! Now, if any other cat sees it, that remains to be a different story altogether.

I'll post this anyway:

I'm on fluids once a day and Mommy has to take me to the vet's which is in the same town but a couple miles away (the other side of town). She can't administer the fluids herself as I move around too much and she gets nervous and drops the needles to the floor. Therefore, the vet techs are doing it after hours FOC (free of charge). That's good as she saves $21.00 per day which equals $147.00 per week which grand totals at $588.00 per month. The money she pays for gas is less than that.

Anyway, I'm hanging in there and I eat everyday even though my appetite is not as hearty as it used to be. Mommy's worried about my weight as I am a skinny boy now; nothing like the 11.6 lbs when I was younger. Now, I'm only 8.6. My fur is like Cam's used to be as I have lost interest in grooming myself. Mommy combs me and Landy washes my feet and head. A few times, she has used kitty wipes to make my fur look more presentible.

As everycat may know, I'm on these fluids because my kidneys aren't working as they used to. I'm in stage 4 kidney disease. I've been taking it one day at a time now. I still Know where I am, I use my litter box (occassionally miss out on the poopies though by putting them on the mat beside the box or in the hallway). I recognize my sibs and Mommy too. I don't have that faraway look in my eyes.

Lastly, I thank everycat who gave me Power of the Paws and other gifts of healing. It means a lot to me.

Got to go now.

Love, Purrs & Breeps,

Hey, Everycat! I'm posting a quick note to let everycat know that we finally got into Catsterland. Our password had to be changed just like many others. It was like we all lived in one big house and we lost our keys. We were living on the streets unable to get in.

Now it feels great to be back home! It's so pawsome!

Lastly, I'll update sometime tomorrow to keep everycat posted on my current health status.

Purrs & Breeps,

I finally am able to get into Caster after a long period of DDOS' and cookie fleas. About cookies, give them to Mommy as she's the Cookie Monster especially when it comes to chocolate chip ones!

Anyway, I have low kidney function and have been receiving fluids everyday until further notice (it may be for the rest of my life). I'm at state 4 kidney failure and a lot of my stage 3 kidney failure was exacerbated (big word for a small 8.6 lb cat) by an infection in my tooth which got me dehydrated. We shall see after this second bag of fluids runs out and my blood work is done again.

Yes, it's a bummer getting old and having to have all these ailments. Still, I press on and take it one day at a time and cherish what little time I have left. Just a little lick on my ear from Joss helps me feel better or even a cuddle or lick from Landy. Of course, cuddles from Mommy help too.

Anyway, I could use purrs too.

Got to cut it short. Sorry.

Purrs & Breeps,

I thought the day that Mommy came home and took me out of the hospital would never come. Thank goodness it did! Now she and I are home. I got lonely for her and my sibs. Especially, Landy,, my cuddle bro. Mommy thinks Bail took my place as his cuddlier. We think it's true as those two were cuddling on Mommy's bed. She took a pic and put it on FB.

Anyway, Mommy told me she did a lot of shopping, eating at restaurants, barbecues, whitewater rafting and riding the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad all in a place called Colorado.. There also was her Dad's and Mary's anniversary and Mary's 86th birthday. One night they had a barbecue and had a campfire afterwards and a ghost story was told about a haunted hotel in Silverton. Mommy said it was creepy. In 2008, Mommy went to the haunted room in said hotel and saw nothing. Her stepbrother's fiancée said she took pics of the window where the ghost of Luigi appears in the glass. Anyway, all picks she took of that window came up in her camera marked "error". Now that's creepy!!

Mommy got home yesterday and picked me up shortly thereafter. When we got home, she discovered there was no hot water. She then went into the cellar and found muck, silt and small pools of water around the stairway. That's when she freaked out and called her neighbor for help. He called Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission and shortly thereafter a man came over to check out the damage. He said it didn't look bad and a cleanup crew would be out on Sunday (tomorrow) and a plumber to light the pilot light in the water heater and to check out the furnace.

All in all, the water heater is up and running. The furnace is drying off and should be good to go tomorrow.

Well, that's about it for now. It's time for my meds.

Purrs & Breeps,
