My Mawmee came home around 1 a.m. this morning! I was sure glad to see her, and she gave me lots of kisses. And then she helped Daddy put that awful medicine in my mouth.
I'm supposed to go back to the vet on Friday, but Mawmee decided to switch my appointment with Sugar's yearly visit, so I'm going tomorrow afternoon.
She thinks I look pretty ragged, and I told her she would look this way too if she had to take that yucky medicine. I'm going to find out if Mawmee and Daddy should start giving me fluids at home.
I also got some good info from Patrick and Scooter about a different form of the yucky medicine. The aluminum hydroxide phosphorus binder comes in a tasteless, odorless form and I would sure go for that! I'll be asking my vet about it.
I don't have any interest in food today, and I don't even want the pill pocket that has my appetite stimulant pill in it.
Daddy did a pawsome job taking care of us, but it was difficult for him to manage everything and his job too. Plus, he hasn't been feeling good, so he is going to his vet today.
Please keep purring for me. Mawmee is very concerned about me - I'm looking pretty thin and she wants me to get better right now. I'll do my best . . . . . . . .

Daddy gave Mawmee an update on me this morning. He was pretty overwhelmed with taking care of me and all of us, and he thought I was taking potassium, but it looks like my liquid medicine is aluminum hydroxide - twice a day to help lower the blood phosphorous levels. He said more of it is on his pants today than in my belly - MOL!
I've been eating okay, and he also put a litterbox downstairs for me so that I don't have to make the big climb upstaisrs. But guess what? Gleek, Violet, and Newman think that new litterbox is cool, and they are using it too!
And Vivien almost got in the house today. And Daddy said if Violet doesn't stop whining, he is kicking him out, and Newman too - MOL!
Daddy said when the head cat is away, chaos reigns supreme! Thanks for the continued purrs!

Thanks, pals, for all your purrs! I'm home! Daddy picked me up this afternoon. I'm pretty stressed out because I had to sleep away from home and hooked up to fluids and antibiotics.
The vet tech told Daddy that I ate a little bit of food last night and again this morning. I have an appetite stimulate to take twice a week. And I also have potassium to take in the form of liquid. Daddy has to put it in a syringe and get it in my mouth. The vet lady said cats don't like it, and I'm a cat, so I can tell you right now I'm not going to like it!
I'm not telling anybody where my infection is located. We're all just hoping that the medicine helps me get better. Mawmee is really sad that she can't be here to love on me, but she will be home on Tuesday.
I'll update you when I can. Thanks again, and keep on purrin' . . . . . . . .

I've had two weeks of pals whose names began with an O - Ollie and Oliver. And now I'm finishing up two weeks of pals whose names end with an O - Phanto, and this week's pal, Ambro! I didn't plan it, but it sure looks cool, huh?
Ambro is his short name. His long name is Ambrogino, and it is Italian for immortal! Ambro was on death row, and there was an emergency posting on Catster. His Mom knew she didn't want him going to the bridge, so she said she would take him and find a home for him. Well, within a second of meeting him, she knew he wasn't going anywhere!
His girlfriend is Oly. I used to pronounce her name Oily until I realized that it is probably pronounced O-lee. Dang, all these O cats are hard to keep straight!
Ambro has a dog that he really likes named Geely. And of course, his cat brother is Gimme, and his diva cat sister is Ele'. I never have been able to pronounce her name!
I have to turn the volume down when I visit Ambro's page because he has a virtual cat on there that cries, and we all freak out when we hear it because we think that Vivien has come in the house or something! Hey, I wonder if Ambro would like another sister?
Ambro is a torti just like his girlfriend. They both have really dark colors in their fur. I guess that is why they like each other. Thankfully, there aren't many orange girls out there, so I am dodging the whole girlfriend thing if you had to base it on looking like each other.
Back in July, Ambro was concerned that he might have to find another home because there was a big stink at his house and he got blamed for knocking a coffee cup over that was near the computer. Luckily he is on Catster because he found out from all his friends that any Mom that keeps coffee near a computer can not blame a cat if something happens. He had the backing of all his friends, and he didn't get in trouble! That is what Catster friendship is all about - supporting one another!
Thanks for being my Pal of the Week, Ambro! You make a pawsome pirate . . . . . . . .

Pirate Pansy is in big trouble now!
While I was getting my pirate on this afternoon - my photographer was getting my picture in my pirate hat - Pansy stole my pink parrot!
Look for yourself! Knowing her, she is probably on her way to California to hook up with that pink lovin' pirate named Gertrude Skullcrack!
There is gonna be some skulls cracked if anything happens to my pink parrot!
I think us boy pirates have outnumbered the girls, so it's only a matter of time before we bring them down! I know Pirate Boogers is working on a plan!
I'll be napping in the Crow's Nest until he calls me into duty!

Dang, I've got ESP! When I first decided to pick Phanto as my Pal of the Week, I said to myself, Calvin, I'll bet his name was supposed to be Phantom, and they ran out of room on the birth certificate!
I was right - sort of. He was going to be named Pablo, but then his people decided Phantom would be a good name. But, being California trend setters, they shortened it to Phanto! That makes Phanto one of a kind because there are a lot of Phantoms on Catster, but only one Phanto! So, if you haven't met him yet, get over and ask him to be friends.
Phanto is 9 and has really big golden eyes. He is solid white. I've never had a solid white brother before. Newman is semi-white. Phanto looks really clean, so he must spend a lot of time grooming himself . . . . when he is not chillaxin on a blanket or watching squirrels outside.
I gotta talk to Phanto about his eating habits. He doesn't like tuna, fish, chicken, or meat! He likes spaghetti-o's and vegetable juice. That is some weird eating, Phanto!
I could tell right away when I read one of Phanto's diary entries that he was going places in this world. He has goals - I mean, real goals. My goal is to squeeze as many meals I can into a day!
Look at Phanto's goals:
1. Meet new friends - you can help him reach that goal!
2. Stay in touch with his friends.
3. Write in his diary more!
4. Win more honors - if he keeps #3 going, he will achieve #3!
5. He would like to win in the World's Coolest Contest this year. Since I live with a winner (Gleek), I can tell Phanto that he needs to make sure his photographer is taking lots of cool pictures of him. And he should start now by looking through his pictures and saving the cool ones in a folder so he can find them easily when the contest rolls around.
6. Phanto would also like to be corralled, so when you invite him to be friends, you can help him achieve this goal too by corralling him!
7. Learn to make his page look better. I think he has one spiffy looking page right now, so this goal is pretty much accomplished!
I see Phanto lives with a white dog that smells like cornflakes. I think what Phanto needs is a solid black kitty to call his sister. We just happen to have one that is living on our front porch. I could fulfill a goal Phanto doesn't even know about by shipping out Vivien to him - MOL!
Thanks for being my Pal of the Week, Phanto . . . . . . . .

Everytime I visit my pal's page, I sing one of the songs from his musical! My newest Pal of the Week is Oliver!
Oliver and his brother, Dewey, are super funny friends. You have to buy the special Oliver dictionary before you can read his diary or your pmails from him. They have their own language!
I can tell the brothers apart because Oliver is a darker orange color, like me. They are both very handsome manly mancats.
Oliver was recently a diary pick, and as a reward, he got Tiki cat! He sure has a pawsome Mommy. I don't think I got Tiki cat the last time I was a diary pick!
Oliver is kind of mysterious. I have several questions for him, like:
Why is your forum name is Mr. Kookamunga? Did you live on a deserted island at one time?
And who is the little neighbor girl that you are crazy about? Does she come to visit you? Does she bring treats?
And why do both us of have a Doris Day song on our page? Who is Doris Day?
I'm glad to see that Oliver is very spoiled because I think that is the only way to live - being spoiled! Oliver likes the sun, and his Mommy - we have that in common!
I had to take time out from this diary entry to do a flojectile, but I'm back now. I wonder if Oliver does flojectiles? I've got a lot to learn about Oliver!
Be sure to stop by and ask him to be friends today! Thanks for being my Pal of the Week, Oliver . . . . . . . . .

Wowza, I'm a diary pick today! Thanks for all the diary congrats. I'm glad to share the spotlight with my pal, Orvis. His little sister, Marvel Ann, is Diary of the Day. The little kids get all the attention.
My pal, Boogers, knows about little kids getting the attention. He has two brothers celebrating their birthdays today - happy birthday to Tiskers and Mittens. And Biscotti is their brother from the same mother or another mother or something like that. He is having his 2nd birthday today too!
Since I'm a diary pick today, I thought I'd give you a new word for your dictionary. It is a good word for me to tell you about since there was a surprise left on the floor today.
Making Clay is your new word. Do you know what it means?
Making clay is usually used by girls because they don't like when we boys say, doing a poopie! There are a lot of other ways we boys like to say it, but you know girls - they are so girly that they won't use words like poop or poopie!
So, Mawmee walks in to our room to clean out the litter boxes, and right in the middle of the floor someone made clay! I'm not telling who did it, but I think it was Samoa. Some other cat had already made clay in one of the boxes, and she doesn't like a diry box. I don't care if somecat has already made clay in the box, if I have to make clay, I'm gonna make clay! I usually make clay in the spaceship litter box.
Have a great day - and remember, making clay keeps the vet away!
Pee Ess - Be sure you don't leave any clay on your backside, or you'll have to get a wipe down! Gleek and Newman know all about that!

The young kids around my neighborhood started school a week and a half ago. Today is the first day back to school for my Daddy. He teaches college kids computer stuff.
He teaches juniors and seniors, but there was some event last week to welcome the freshman who are going into the College of Business. He said they are all cocky and try to act like they know so much. They'll get knocked down a notch or two when they get into his class - MOL!
He has had a motto he uses every year in his classes:
This is not Burger King!
And do you know what that means?
You can't have it your way!
MOL . . . . . . . . . .

I'm really behind this week! I'm just now writing about my Pal of the Week, and it's almost time to pick another pal!
For a long time, I thought Ollie was a boy because there aren't a lot of orange tabby girl cats. But then I realized that Ollie is a persian, and there must be more orange persian girls than orange tabby girls. I also thought Ollie might be short for Oliver, but I think it's short for Olivia. I'm going to call her Olivia from now on cause I like formal stuff like that.
Olivia should really be named Pickles because she started out as a stray in some trucking terminal. She found a nice guy and kept hanging around him until one day he picked her up, put her in a pickle crate in the back of his truck, and took her to her new forever home.
Olivia Pickles is only 3 years old and she has some tooth problem I've never heard of before called FORL which stands for Feline Odontitic Resorbtive Lesions. For all you untechnical cats, that means her teeth dissolve from the inside out. It can be very painful and it is probably genetic because it usually happens to older cats. She has already had 6 teeth taken out, and will be toothless by the time she gets to be an Olde Furt.
We all know Lola had her teeth taken out, and cats can still eat just fine with no teeth, so I'm not worried about Olivia Pickles. She will do just fine!
She is a princess, and since she doesn't have any siblings, Olivia Pickles gets lots of attention! However, she isn't too crazy about attention from the grandchildren, and who can blame her? Kids are nothing but trouble and should be sent to an island until they are 21 - that is what my Grandpaw always said - MOL!
Olivia just got back from staycation where she was given the royal treatment! Be sure to stop by and say hello to her, and ask her to be friends!
Thanks for being my Pal of the Week, Ollie . . . . . . . . . .
