Kitty is in the recovery room! Luckily, she didn't have any more kittens in her tummy, but she did have some placenta that needed to be removed. The vet also spayed her and removed a couple of small cysts.
Now, we need to purr that her recovery is quick, and that she continues to nurse Miracle, her sweet kitten.
Thank you for all your purrs - we're thankful that she didn't have any more kittens inside!

Well, I'm glad the Diary Gal was on the ball and read the P.S. in my last diary entry. I'm sure that is what got me picked today! Thank you to all my friends who have made this day extra special.
What will make the day perfect is when we get good news about Kitty and her surgery. She went to the vet this morning, with little kitten, Miracle, in tow. He is spending the day at the vet's office too, because he will need to nurse.
Kitty's surgery is scheduled for later today. She will be spending the night at the vet's office. Luckily, she got to the vet's office before all the snow started coming down.
Blizzard the Catfather reports that it is blizzard conditions - MOL! They have about five inches of snow so far.
Let's hope that the surgery is successful and isn't too complicated requiring all our collected funds. I'm hoping there will be some left over to help with the care of Kitty and Miracle!
Thank you for purring and helping out Kitty. I know she feels the love from all of us!

You are probably getting updates from Blizzard the Catfather, but I thought I'd also let you know the latest with Kitty.
Her tummy surgery is scheduled for Monday at 8:30 a.m. So, we all need to keep her in our purrs. Her kitten has been named Miracle which is a purrfect name for a kitty who was the only one to survive. Miracle will also be going to the vet's office on Monday so that Kitty can continue nursing him.
Thank you again to everyone who was so generous with their donations. We have raised enough money to cover Kitty's surgery (hopefully with no complications during the surgery). The money was wired to Blizzard's Daddy yesterday so that he will be able to pay the vet.
Unfortunately the vet's office refused to take a credit card over the phone, wouldn't allow us to wire the money directly to their bank, and wouldn't allow a check to be sent from us either. So, please keep these things in mind should you ever want to help out someone who doesn't live in your area. It takes some time and coordination to make it all happen! We're just happy that we got it all together in time to help out Kitty!
Keep her, baby kitten Miracle, and Blizzard's family in your purrs this weekend and especially on Monday! We'll keep you updated on her condition!
In other news, I stunk up the house with a smelly poopie this morning. I'm allowed because I'm the Diva of the house. Have a great weekend!

Well, the kitty named Kitty that is living at Blizzard the Catfather's house went to the vet today.
They did an x-ray and determined that something is in her tummy. It could be a kitten (which would be deceased), or it might be placenta that didn't come out when she gave birth to her kitten (and the four stillborn kittens).
So, Kitty is going to need surgery. If they find it isn't the two things shown above but some other minor problem, the vet will treat it as a spay surgery and the cost will be much less.
However, if it is more complicated surgery, the cost will be in the $700-900 range. The good news is that with donations we have received so far, we were able to pay for the vet visit today (which was $260) and we have over $500 towards the surgery.
Thank you to everycat that has helped out Kitty! Kitty's parents are unable to care for her right now, so a big thank you to Blizzard's Daddy for stepping up and helping out this sweet girl and her new kitten.
The auction over at Mawmee's Facebook album is still going on, so if your Mom or Dad is on FB, send them over there. If you are interested in donating an item to the auction, please contact me!
More importantly, please keep Kitty in your purrs. She desperately needs this surgery before her condition worsens. Right now she is doing okay, but things could take a turn at any time.

Hey friends, if you have a chance, stop by and send a friend invite to Kitty. She is the sweet mama kitty that I was telling you about in my previous diary entry.
She is living at Blizzard's house with her new kitten. Please keep her in your purrs this week as she will be going to the vet to see if she has any other kittens in her tummy. We are purring that she doesn't because if she does, it is possible she will need surgery to remove them.
Welcome to Catster, Kitty!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all our friends! Today also happens to be our 7th Catster Anniversary! Wowza, has it been that long? Our lives sure changed back in 2006 when we joined Catster!
We've had so much fun over the years, and we have wonderful friends that we care about and cherish! Too many of our friends have journeyed to the bridge during that time - great Catster legends like Louis LeBeau who is celebrating his birthday with his angel friends today! Legends like Hazel Lucy who has made her return to Catster!
We miss so many of our friends that have left Catster, but we think of them often. We're thankful for the many friends who are still around and are so generous with their support when there are cats in need.
We are currently helping a kitty who isn't on Catster, but is being taken care of by Blizzard's the Catfather's Daddy. Here is a picture of pregnant Kitty and her one kitten. She had four other kittens that were stillborn. She might still have 2-3 kittens in her belly which could be very dangerous for Mama Kitty if the kittens are deceased. She is going to the vet this week, and if a C-section is needed, it is going to be very expensive.
We are currently having an auction on Facebook to help with the vet bills for this sweet kitty. If your Mommy or Daddy are on Facebook, have them check out the auction items in my Mommy's album. There are other ways cats can help too. If you're interested, please contact me.
So many cats helping cats . . . . . that is what Catster is all about, and we are proud to have been here for 7 years! Let's celebrate!
P.S. I might have stolen a doughnut off the counter this morning. I was trying to celebrate my anniversary! MOL!

Hey, friends, get your Mom off her chair and tell her to enter you in the Sheba, Feed Your Passion contest! Sure, she has to blab on about her passion, but the best part is when she uploads your picture!
Of course, you know which cat in this family is the most photogenic! Check out this entry!

Well, another year, another group of handsome mancats become Dreamboats, Dreamboats-in-Training, and Angel Dreamboats!

I'm wrapping it up on the last day of the month of love! Today I'm introducing you to the final dreamboats for my list this year. It has been a pawsome year for admiring the handsomeness on Catster. Here are my final picks:
Dreamboat #121a is Punky Punkerson from Punkersville - meet Punkin! This spoiled orangie loves boxes and playing with his siblings. He is also the family bathroom monitor - we all have one of those in the family - the cat that follows everyone to the bathroom! Punkin has a long list of nicknames - one is Doodle Bug which happens to be my brother Inky's nickname too. I love the beautiful stripes on Punkin's tail. I also think he looks pretty darn cute when he is catnapping! Congrats on becoming a dreamboat, Punkin.
Dreamboat #121b is Punkin's older brother, Midnight. This handsome panther kitty has beautiful shiny fur, and he is known as the Inspector General. It is very important for dreamboats to be helpful around the house. Midnight has several jobs - inspecting the litterbox cleanings and supervising changing of the bed sheets. Midnight loves attention, so all your girlcats get over to his page and show him some love! Congrats, Midnight, on becoming Dreamboat #121b.
Dreamboat #121c is the tuxypoo known as Tux! Tux has a beautiful white bib and pretty eyes. This lover boy started out working at a drive-in searching the dumpster for food. His persistent owner finally captured him, and he is living the good life now! His favorites include sitting on his Mom's lap, and getting his back and chin scratched. I'm sure there are a few Catster gals who would like to scratch his chinny! I'm glad to have you on my dreamboat list, Tux!
Dreamboat #122a is the Boss Cat - Timmy Tomcat! You've got to love a cat that adores his Daddy. Timmy is skilled at catching flies in the air. He is energetic and curious and will check out any drawer that is left open. All the proof you need for his dreamboat status is in this picture. Are you swooning yet? Congratulations, Timmy Tomcat - you are one handsome dreamboat!
Dreamboat #122b is another handsome tomcat - meet Toby Tomcat! Toby says, somecat in the family has to be handsome, and I think you'll agree that he is quite the dreamy boy. Toby has some very impressive wrastling moves, and equally impressive claws which are only used for modeling purposes. Speaking of modeling, I think Toby has a future as a toy model - look at that pose! Congratulations, Toby - you're handsome, you know it, and now all the girlcats know it too!
Dreamboat #122c is the treat meister - meet Buddy Bud! Buddy Bud came to his family on New Year's Eve, and I can't think of a better date for the evening. Buddy was quite a recluse when he first moved in and it took him awhile to be comfortable in his new home. Buddy is proof that with some encouragement, love, time, and space, a shy recluse can turn into a wonderful member of the family. Buddy Bud has the most gorgeous gray coat and lovely eyes. This treat loving boy also has some impressive wrastling moves - there is a lot of testosterone in this family of mancats! He enjoys chillaxin in boxes or on his special spot on the couch. I'm excited to have Buddy Bud on my dreamboat list - congratulations!
Well, there you have it, friends! More handsomeness for you to enjoy. Please visit these boys and leave them a treat or two and especially send a friend invite.
Tomorrow I will have my complete Dreamboat List for you to look through.

I've got a family of handsome mancats to introduce to you today!
Dreamboat #119a is the handsome teenager, Tony! Who does Tony remind you of? Wow, what gorgeous eyes! Just like my brother, Newman, Tony was a stray kitten who luckily found a family to take him in. I adore Tony's floof, and I'm sure all you girlcats will love it too, but like so many handsome mancats, Tony has a girlfriend! Wouldn't you love to hang out with Tony in his outdoor summer catio? Congratulations, Tony, on becoming a dreamboat!
Dreamboat #119b is the Silver Bullet named Greystone! My favorite feature of Greystone's is his cute smile and white fur around his mouth. Of course, you will also melt when you look into his beautiful eyes! Greystone was recently Catster's Cat of the Day which is a fun honor to add to his resume. And now he can also add official dreamboat to that resume too! Congrats, Greystone!
Dreamboat #119c was another kitty in this family that started out as a stray. Meet Sammy. Don't close the door on this handsome mancat because it is a pet peeve of his! Sammy has the skill of opening doors - what a smart mancat! You're going to love Sammy 's nose and the prominent white stripe that makes him extra cute! I can see why Sammy has a girlfriend because who could resist his super dark fur stripes? If you feel a tap on your shoulder, it is just Sammy trying to get your attention! I hope I have your attention, Sammy - congrats on becoming a dreamboat!
Dreamboat #119d is a sweet kitty who lives in the woods - meet four year old Ashe. Ashe is a gorgeous mancat who was taken good care of from afar. He enjoyed his twice daily meals, but one day stopped coming by to eat. When things like this happen, we are always hopeful that someone took Ashe in and made him an indoor kitty. I love Ashe's beautiful eyes. I hope that wherever Ashe is, he knows that he is loved and is Dreamboat #119d! Congrats, Ashe.
Dreamboat #120 is the loudest meower in the land - meet Manytoes! Do I even have to tell you why he is named Manytoes? Oh my, what pawsome paws! He has 7 toes on each front paw, and 5 on each back paw - the better to knead you with, I'm sure! In addition to being a talker, I think Manytoes is the longest cat in the land too! And you're going to immediately fall in love when you see him all dressed up! I'm happy to add you to my list, Manytoes! Congratulations on being Dreamboat #120.
I hope you'll visit these sweet boys and ask them to be friends with you!
