I'm out of sorts today. First of all, I was downstairs in the dining room when Mommy gave me my pills (in a pill pocket). A few minutes later I was meowing loudly and then all of a sudden I gacked and up came a long hairball following by the pill pocket. I also barfed all over my front feet. YUCKY!! Mommy had to wipe off my feet and then clean up the mess on the rug. Of course, she had to re-pill me as the one that came up wasn't even dissolved yet.

After that ordeal, I took a nap and a few hours I was up. I meowed and before I made it to Mommy's bedroom, I dropped a long poopie in the hallway.

Mommy asked me what was wrong and I looked at her funny. Hey, I don't feel that great! I think I need some purrs!

Anyway, I'll take another nap. I don't know why I'm feeling so yucky! I ate a good breakfast and that stayed down. Mommy thinks my grooming too much is the root of my problems. There's just too many hairballs! She says "even Bail with thicker and longer hair doesn't yuck as much as you do, and it's because he's not a compulsive groomer".

Well, that's about it. I hope I feel better after my nap.

Mommy now has something else in common with me besides arthritis. It's the ITCHIES!!!

My itchies are still hanging around and they mostly come at night. Mommy thinks it's because I sneak Cam's or my brothers' wet food.

Her itchies are from the flaking and peeling skin around the incision scar on her knee. She also thinks that the body washes she uses irritate it making the itchies worse. She then puts lotion on the itchy areas (not on the incision itself, but around it). She wants to get regular soap and use that instead of these fancy body soaps she has. Hopefully, that'll keep her itchy knee feeling better.

Also, I was naughty to Cam the other day. I don't know what got into me. I know she's trusting me more with each passing day and then I had to be a complete bad *&^ to her by boxing her. Believe me, she boxed me back. Serves me right for being bully no. 2 in the house (Landy is no. 1).

I must keep telling myself that Cam doesn't want to be bothered with nasty brothers and that she trusts me more than the others.

Lastly, we got a warm weekend around here. So far, it's early so the heat isn't on yet. Around noon or so, we expect the temps to rise. No t-storms are called for either. This is a rainless weekend!

Well, that's about it, my friends. Keep cool!

I extend my concats to our sister, Camille Rose, on her diary pick today! I'm glad she got it as she's been under a lot of stress because of Landy's picking on her, and she needed something to cheer her up.

Cam's right about me being her best brother. Since I've gotten older and also have arthritis, I can sympathize with her as to not wanting to be bothered by younger cats such as Landy. I don't like it when he tries it on me and of course, I give him firm hisses to let him know that I don't appreciate rough play all the time.

I've done my best to stay in Cam's room with her a lot of times and even breeped at her. We've sat side-by-side before when Mommy's in there with us.

I've given up on chasing her and boxing her like Landy currently does. Yep, I've mellowed in my older years. Poor Jasmine Bibette used to get that bully treatment from me when I was Landy's age. She'd stay upstairs all the time in the bedrooms and when she ventured downstairs, I'd chase her back upstairs. I was a terror!

Hopefully, when Landy gets older, he'll mellow out like I have.

Anyway, Mommy has a visit with the ortho at 3:00 p.m. today. Pray for good results. She's ready to go back to work and earn more money.

I'm one of those compulsive groomers and because of this, I launch many hairballs. Tonight was one of those nights. I was asleep on Mommy's bed when the urge to yuck came upon me. I'm always considerate and never do this on her bed; I jumped to the floor and deposited it right there. Mommy thanked me for putting it on the floor.

Anyway, I feel much better now.

I hope every cat is having a great Memorial Day weekend!

Today is a lazy day for us kitties. Bail, Landy and I are on Mommy's bed right now. Landy is out like a light as he had the cat crazies as soon as the sun rose. Bail's drifting off to some song by Chloe Agnew from one of the "Celtic Women" CD's. Of course this was dictated to Mommy a few minutes before I nodded off.

Mommy told me that Ms. Peggy wrote little day-by-day notes on her progress with us kitties and how Landy and I followed her around the house like dogs. She mentioned that Merl only came out when some organic nip was offered to him. MOL! He can never say no to nip even when a stranger offers it. She also caught Landy stealing Cam's moist food; she bought a tube of Nutri-Cal for Cam as she thought she was listless. Lastly, she brought over her radio and had it playing classical music 24/7. Yep, us kitties were introduced to another type of music and we loved it.

Anyway, I'll be on my way. Have a pawsome Sunday, my friends.

First, of all, I concat the head nurse, Landy, on his DDP today! I'm also one of the head nurses in the household who is glued to Mommy's side. Next, is Merl, Bail and then, believe it or not, Cam. As Landy mentioned, the old gal has been coming into Mommy's bedroom every evening before bedtime. This is a rarity! She's trying her best to deal with Landy's bullying her by chasing and boxing her in the butt.

Lastly, Mommy was taken by her neighbor to the ortho surgeon today for followup treatment on her knee. They took x-rays which turned out great! He told her to bend the knee and she bent it a lot. He was pleased and wants to see her in three weeks for another followup visit. Also, Mommy asked him if her knee felt hot to him and he said it did and it was normal as it was still inflamed (numb in that area too). He told her to use two pillows to elevate her knee.

Anyway, that's it. We're keeping to one diary a day for now. Goodnight, everycat.

Mommy comes home today! Us kitties are so excited that we can't sit still! When she gets home, we will shower her with welcome home purrs, sandpaper kisses and wet nose whisker tickles. We will be glued to her.

Words alone cannot convey how much we missed our
Mommy and hope that she's never gone this long again!

Auntie Mary and Ms. Peggy have been good to us and still we long for Mommy's return!

One of us will post later today with more news on Mommy's return.

Here's an update sent via Mommy's iPhone: She's doing okay & the swelling has gone down on her knee. Intense P.T. starts tomorrow.

Us kitties are doing fine. The pet sitter, Peggy, managed to lure Merl out from the bed with nip. Auntie Mary stopped by today & Merl let her pet him. This is great progress!

Lastly, I thank the DIary Gal for the DDP honor today & cool comments from my friends!

Just a short late note to let everycat know we're doing fine.

Mommy's having her total knee replacement surgery tomorrow at 7:30 a.m. so keep her in your prayers and purrs. We're purring loudly too!

Mark and Peggy will be sitting for us while Mommy is away. Landy, Cam and I met them both; they're very nice. Bail and Merl hid under the bed. They're the shy guys.

Anyway, we'll be back in the regular swing of things after Mommy's back.

I'm 15 years old today! I'm still going strong heart wise; but am still dealing with the itchies that don't want to go away completely. I also have arthritis in my back legs which makes it harder to walk up and down the stairs. Still, I work my legs by giving them a lot of exercise so they don't stiffen up on me totally. Walking up and down stairs is good exercise, hint, hint, hint Mommy!

I thank HQ for the yummy birthday cake, treats and birthday email.

I also thank my following friends for their gifts, etc.:

1. CALLIE ROSE - pawsome pawmail and card;
2. MILO - & Family cute bunny;
3. VIOLET & Family - lovely Easter egg;
4. BELLA & Family - lovely Easter egg;
5. WESLEY & Family - lovely Easter egg;
6. HAZEL LUCY - cool comment;
7. DA TABBIES O TROUT TOWNE - pawsome pawmail;
8. MUPPET & FAMILY - lovely heart.

Lastly, I concat our angel Max on being Diary of the Day! Way to go Max. It's great to see that two of my angel brothers (Bentley) have gotten Diary of the Day in the same year. I believe Bentley was up in the spotlight a couple weeks ago.

Anyway, I got to take a nap.

Purrs & Breeps,
