I'm the King of this cat family and I'm feeling better today! My meds have been decreased exactly a week ago today, and my energy is coming back. When Mommy came home from work, I was at the front door with my sibs to greet her like I used to earlier this year. Also, I ate a hearty dinner , and 1/2 hour afterwards, I came back upstairs on my own without any falling episodes.

Mommy is so happy that I'm feeling better and of course so am I and my sibs.

Also, I extend my concats to Joss on her diary pick today. Way to go, girl!!

Lastly, I thank all my friends who gave me gifts and get well purrs and prayers. It has surely helped me!

For about five days on my reduced thyroid and heart meds plus 1/4 a tab of low dose aspirin 81 mg. (every other day on this), I felt much better. On Sunday, I had another falling and howling episode. This was after I walked downstairs and came back up a bit later. When I feel better, I venture downstairs. When not, I stay upstairs as the food, water and litter boxes are up there. Of course, there is water and some food downstairs too but no litter boxes.

Anyway, I don't know how long it'll be before I get stabilized on the reduced regemin of meds. Further purrs and prayers are needed so I can keep feeling better.

Every time, I have these falling/howling episodes, Mommy and I are afraid that my time to journey to the Bridge is going to happen then or soon thereafter. She told me when she's at work, she worries that I'll make my journey without her being around to comfort me.

It is scary having health issues such as mine. In the meantime, I'll hang in there and take it one day at a time and enjoy Mommy, my sibs, the sunlight, and food.

First of all, let me fill everycat in on what happened today. Mommy took Joss and I to the vet today; she for her three year shots and me for bloodwork to see how my thyroid meds are helping me. Everything went fine. The vet also told Mommy that I didn't act out when my blood was drawn. Joss was a bit scared as she hasn't been to the vet since last October when she got her initial shots.

Anyway,after all was done, Mommy brought us home. When I was let out of my carrier, Landy was so glad to see me that he chased me nipping at my butt. I yelped and ran as fast as my old cat legs could carry me. Mommy then picked me up and carried me up five steps and let me climb the rest. When I got to the hallway, another episode overtook me. Mommy told me when I came to that I had fallen to the floor, yowled and lost control of my bladder. She said she stroked me and told me over and over to stay with her. She picked me up and carried me to her bed wherein she continued to cuddle and comfort me. I came around laying in her arms. I gradually returned to normal and was eating, purring and drinking normally. Mommy said the seizure didn't last long, but afterwards I was a bit dazed and wobbly on my feet.

Mommy called the vet but didn't get a return call until this afternoon. She believes I did have a seizure but can't tell if it was brain or heart related without an MRI taken of my brain. Mommy told the vet that I see my cardiologist Monday and maybe he'll have some idea if it was my heart making me seize and walk wobbly.

Anyway, I could use some Power of the Purr. It would be greatly appreciated.

It's a double header today as Joss and I are in the diary spotlight. Woo-Hoo! Thanks so much, Diary Gal for honoring us both!

Also, I thank my pawsome friends for their concats as follows:

1. ANGEL BUDDIE & Family - pawsome pawmail;
2. SMILEY CASANOVA - pawsome pawmail & cool comment.

Also, it's been a busy weekend for Mommy. On Saturday, she made the autumn leave mosaic which was pretty much dry when she left the class. The only thing, she and the other lady had to finish the grouting at home because the time had run out at class. Yesterday, she was so busy that she didn't get around to the grouting. She'll do it some time this week.

Also, my cardiologist appointment is set for October 21st. I hate to go through this as I have to be sedated because I wiggle too much when the doctor shaves my chest and greases it up with some type of gel. Then he takes this thingy and rubs it on my chest which sends images of my heart to a screen. By this he can tell what's going on with my heart and then he prints out a diagnosis. I know all this as I managed to not be sedated the first time I had this done in September 2009 when I was first diagnosed with restrictive cardiomyopathy. Hopefully this situation is still stabilized and I don't have to have my meds changed or increased. This procedure is very expensive and Mommy wishes they had Medicare for senior cats. Anyway, purrs and prayers are appreciated.

Lastly, Mommy's upstairs human litter box acted up last night. She called Uncle Dave and he'll be by tonight. In the meantime, she has to use the old one in the cellar which she isn't happy about using as there are many spiders down there and she has to walk down two flights of stairs.

Oh we'll, she hopes she doesn't have to get a new one and spend more big bucks on top of my cardiologist visit. When it rains, it pours as the old saying goes.

Well, I best be going now as Joss has to write something too.

Of course, all of us gave Landy our birthday wishes; we just didn't have time to post yesterday. We did nothing special; no salmon or chicken except for the cat food type in cans. Sunday is Farmer's Market day so hopefully the salmon man will be there. This market is supposed to run through November 1st.

Anyway, Mommy got a reminder postcard from my cardiologist regarding my annual heart checkup. Hopefully, my ticker is still in good shape. Purrs would be appreciated for good results and that my medication won't have to be changed or increased.

Lastly, Mommy keeps telling us that she plans on changing our page decor to a fall theme.

Got to go. I hear Mommy is going to cook some scrambled eggs in a few minutes. I think I'll drop by the kitchen for a taste.

Woo-Hoo for Bail as he's one of the Diary Picks today.

Also, too bad Mommy won't be buying salmon today as her bug hasn't completely gone away. The worse part is over with though. She ran out of bland food such as soups, applesauce, and saltines so she'll go to the store a little later today.

As Bail mentioned in his diary today, us kitties are on nurse duty. Right now me, Merl and Bail are on her bed with her. Joss is in the window soaking up the sun. Landy went downstairs for a bit and he'll be back.

Lastly, all that cloudy rainy mess that we had yesterday turned out nicely today. We got sun and it's supposed to hit the lower 70's.

Well, that's about it. Time for a nap.

First of all, I extend my concats to Joss for her Diary Pick today. Way to go, young sis!

Secondly, Joss and I wash each other now. She pretty well saturated the top of my head and I got her neck. She did want to wrestle a little bit afterwards and I told her firmly that I wasn't in the mood. Mommy also told her that I wasn't up to it either.

Lastly, I did some sunbathing on the windowsill perch. This is the only window I can jump into as it's next to Mommy's bed.

Well, that's about it. Mommy has to give me my last heart pill for the day.

Our dear friend, EDWINA (Eddy), made her journey to the Bridge. She was loved by all and will be missed.

Gentle comforting purrs and prayers are sent to Eddy's Mommy and family at this sad time. Fly free dearest Eddy and soar with the angels. Your memory will live on in everyone's hearts.

I haven't had anymore strange episodes lately, thank goodness! Also, since I've been on the thyroid meds, I don't get the itchies anymore. Therefore, all the special food that was given to me for an alleged food allergy doesn't have to be given to be anymore. Mommy put me back on Fancy Feast and I'm doing fine! She still has some special food left and will hand that out when we run low on the other stuff. Landy likes it anyway and he can eat it. Bail used to like it, but now he's snubbing it and calling it "yucky".

Also, enjoy my new pic #10 which is of Mommy holding me. She took this with her IPAD mini iOS camera. It's easy for people who live alone who want to take self portraits or pic of them holding their pets.

This one came out a bit blurry of me, though. I think I moved in Mommy's arms.

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

Purrs & Breeps,
