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.

Purrs & Breeps,

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.

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,
