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.

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.

This is so sad that we and our friends have no pics on our pages! When will we be seen again????

Some of the white boxes have question marks in them. We don't know if our pics have been erased or not. It's all crazy and scary.

Because of this, we haven't written in our diaries for a long time. We want Catster to be back to normal again. Purrlease!

Anyway, I'm going to cut this one short. This is also a test to see if my diary saves.

Despite this ongoing mess, I hope everycat has had a happy Memorial Day weekend.

Today is a very sad day. We just found out that our dear friend, SMILEY CASSNOVA, has made his journey to the Bridge this weekend. He was always there for us and concatted us on our Diary Picks. He was a kind and caring friend, and we will miss him greatly. We know many beautiful memories of him will live forever in our hearts.

Fly free, dearest and loving friend. We also send many purrs and prayers to his Mommy, brother Luigi and family at this sad time.

All of us are crying for the loss of Smiley. It's hard to believe that this had happened to him. He was only five years old.

We're going be quite today in honor of Smiley. Rest in Peace, dear friend.

What a pleasant surprise today! Catster is up and running and I'm one of the Diary Picks! Thank you so much Diary Gal for this honor, and thank you HQ & your techs for exterminating that flea infestation!

I also thank my friends for their gifts and concats as follows:

1. SMILEY CASSANOVA - pawsome pawmail;
2. ANGEL SONNY BONO & Family - cool balloons;
3. SHADOW & CHICO - cute bluebird & friends' request;
4. MAC & IVY - kitty hugs;
5. ANGEL BUDDIE & Family - pawsome pawmail;
6. PLATELICKER - cool comment;
7. SMILEY & LUIGI - cool comment.

Lastly, we are having "Water World" this week. Three days of rain and flooding conditions. Today was the worst of all.

Starting some time tomorrow, it'll clear up and be nice for Friday and the weekend. I hope the weather people are right. We could use a dry spell for a bit after all that rain.

Well, that's about it. Got to run.

First of all, today is a great day as Catster is up and running. Bail got in some time early this evening and me now later in the evening. Hopefully Catster and SayMedia have succeeded in getting rid of the DDOS issues.

Secondly, I had my blood work done for my thyroid on Saturday . Today, the vet called Mommy with the results . My thyroid levels are fine and I can stay on one Tapezol pill a day. Six months from now, I'll have my blood checked again.

Well, I'm going to cu it short. I'm tired and so's Mommy.

Purrs & Breeps,



I'M IN!!!

On the first try today, Catster wouldn't load. A few minutes later it did. I'm glad it did so I could write a little bit in my Diary today!

First of all, I have to have my six month blood work done on my thyroid tomorrow. The doctor won't renew my thyroid meds until that is done.

Secondly, time is drawing near to the date of Mommy's vacation. Poor me will be staying at the hospital wherein my cardiologist practices. Mommy thought it would be best just in case something bad happened to me while she wasn't around and the pet sitter would be burdened with the job of rushing me to the hospital.

My sibs will be staying home and fed and cared for by the petsitter, Leila. She will be coming by twice a day to do that.

Lastly, Mommy will be going to a Celtic festival tomorrow. She's excited.

Well, that's about it from me. Have a pawsome weekend, everycat!

WOWZA! After having a birthday the other day and Bail's birthday along with his and Landy's diary picks, I'm in the spotlight today! Thank you Diary Gal for honoring me this time!

I also thank my pawsome friends for their gifts & concats:

1. ANGEL BUDDIE & Family - pawsome pawmail & lovely, blue healing rosette;
2. PLATELICKER - hugging kitty;
3. SMILEY CASSANOVA - pawsome pawmail;

Lastly, I think spring has finally sprung! Other things are blooming this week besides the daffodils; oak trees, weeping willows, our redbud trees, pear trees, and cherry blossoms. Mommy's front lawn is also turning green and I think the lawn care guys will stop by soon.

Well, I must go now.

I'm 17 years old today and am a very blessed kitty to have made it to this age. I was diagnosed with restrictive cardiomyopathy in September of 2009 and have been on Sotalol and Enapril since then. The dose of the Sotalol was reduced last summer because, after time, it made my heart beat slower and caused me to have a few falling episodes. Since this reduction, I have not fallen once. I am now on 1 pill a day for an over active thyroid, and since early winter, I've been on a small dose of a pain killer because of a lower left canine pain (I can't get oral surgery because of my heart condition). Anyway, I'm blessed that I keep on keeping on. My appetite is pretty good and I love my catnip trips. I also walk up and down the stairs several times a day without any problems.
At my age, I take it one day at a time and enjoy each and every minute to its fullest.

My thank you's go out to HQ for the birthday cake and also my friends for their gifts and birthday wishes as follows:

1. ANGEL REBBY - bluebird;
2. SAM, MR. D & Family - heart;
3. ANGEL BELLA & Family - bluebird;
4. CALLIE ROSE & the BIRTHDAY & GOTCHA CLUB - hugging kitty with attached card;
5. LEXI - ladybug;
6. FRISKIE & Family - hugging kitty;
7. ANGEL HAZEL LUCY & MAZIE - yummy shrimp;
8. BEEPERS & Family - bluebird;;
9. GLEEK & Family - yummy cupcake;
10. LUIGI & SMILEY - football;
11. VELCRO - pawsome pawmail;
12. GUIDO , THE ITALIAN KITTY - a crown for me, The King & cool comment on pic of
Mommy holding me in a bunch of flowers;
13. PLATELICKER - yummy shrimp & cool comment;
14. FUZZ - cool comment;
15. LOIS K. - cool comment.

Also. The weather around here is slowly warming up. This is the first two sunny days in a row weekend so I'm really enjoying this. Sunny birthdays are the best!

Well, I must go now as it's breakfast time.

Purrs & Breeps,
