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 . . . . . . . . . .

You all know about that skinny little black cat that we have been feeding on the front porch, right? We think it is a girl because Mawmee can't see grapes or a fruit cup. She is going to call one of the neighbors today to see if the cat lives over in the next court.
Then there is the white and tan cat that sometimes hangs out in the backyard and woods. He looks like Victor Gibbs, and we're not sure if he is a stray or not.
Well, this morning Mawmee looked out the back window and saw something white up against the fence. She hadn't seen the kitty in awhile, and after seeing his tail flick, she realized what it was.
When she went down to feed Sugar, she decided to make sure the kitty wasn't hurt because it seemed weird the way he was laying against the fence. And, yeah, she conveniently took a bowl of dry food with her.
The kitty started to run away, but stopped over near the hotel on the woodpile. He came over and Mawmee petted him, and she set the bowl down. He wasn't interested in the food, and walked away.
Mawmee was hoping Daddy didn't see her take the food outside. She realized he was in the bathroom getting ready for work, and he probably didn't see her. She came upstairs to take a shower so she could get Sugar to the vet, and when she got to the bathroom, Daddy said to her:
There was an old woman who lived in a shoe,
She had so many cats, she didn't know what to do!
She started laughing, and he said he saw her give that kitty some food! BUSTED!
MOL . . . . . . . . . . .

I'm starting back my Pal of the Week, and this week my pal is my local dude pal, Jack! Jack was a kitten on the streets when he found his forever home with his Mommy.
Jack is famous because he recently won a photo contest at one of our local radio stations. We voted on-line for him. I can't wait to hear about all the cool stuff he won. He has also been on the website Stuffonmycat, and won the Decades Contest they had, so maybe you've seen his pictures there too!
Recently Jack thought he had a cancerous tumor in his belly. His weight dropped from 22 lbs. down to 9 lbs. - wowza, that is some weight loss! The poor dude has been through a lot of poking and proding and stuff stuck where it shouldn't be stuck!
Well, it turned out the belly problem was a bleeding ulcer and he also has IBD. He is taking yucky medicine for the ulcer, and he also has to eat special food for his IBD problem. If any of you Olde Furts with IBD have food suggestions, Jack would love to hear about it. He isn't too crazy about the food his Mom has been giving him, and he can't afford to lose any more weight!
Jack is one cool cat, so if you're not friends, be sure to stop by and send him a purr and a friend invite! I know he would love to hear from you.
Thanks for being my Pal of the Week, Jack! I hope you get completely better real soon . . . . . . . . .

I see Catster got smart, and now when you leave a comment on a diary entry, it says in red letters:
Your Comment Has Been Posted!
I don't think it said that before, and you know us cats, if you don't tell us, we'll hit that send button again, and then, dang, you've left your comment twice, and you look like a dweeb!
Sometimes if our typist clicks wrong, it will look like she left the comment, and then she feels like a dweeb!
No more dweebness now . . . . . . . . .

I am so sad to hear that my pal, Tyler made his journey to the bridge.
I stayed up late tonight, and got the pmail that Hazel Lucy sent out to the OF group:
He collapsed at home and was rushed to the ER where he went into heart failure and was gently led to the angels.
I am crying for his Mommy and Daddy - they loved Tyler so much, and did everything to help him. I'm thankful he had some special moments with his family before he made his journey.
Many friends were there to greet you, Tyler. I know Spunky will show you around the bridge. Rest in peace, my pal . . . . . . .

Wowza, I've noticed that I haven't had to get my picture taken in any special hats or outfits lately.
I'm having a holidrawl! Are you having one too?
A holidrawl is depression caused by a lack of a holiday for at least a one-month period.
The biggest Catster holidrawl is from 4th of July until Labor Day! Then, the big holiday picture taking starts - Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas!
I say holidrawls should be celebrated! Why should we be depressed about not having to wear silly hats and costumes? Embrace the holidrawls! We need more holidrawls! My life was all about holidrawls until I became a Catster! MOL!

I'm glad to see our trophy is back in the shop - and it is better than ever! Thanks, HQ, for listening to us!
Purrs to Boots' family. He journeyed to the Rainbow Bridge today where he will be a beautiful angel with his sisters, Susie and Flinders.
Rest in peace, Boots . . . . . . . . .

My vet lady called today like she said she would. My thyroid is perfect!
Mawmee asked her about whether I should get rechecked in a few months on my pancreas. She said the one enzyme was elevated so little, and the others were normal, so she isn't too concerned about any problems. She said at my next normal visit, they will check it again.
Thanks to all of you for your purrs. I sure didn't mean to scare anybody by flojectiling blood! I went downstairs this morning to drink out of Sugar's big water bowl. I'm fascinated by it for some reason.
Have a pawsome weekend . . . . . . . .
