Who would have ever thought I would be the GOOD kitty?

You might have read in my sister Hazel's diary that she and I went to the vet today.

When the door to the exam room opened, there were THREE white coats. They know me so well now that they don't even attempt to get my blood without three of them. I put up a fight, but they seemed to outwit me, and before I knew it, I was on my side getting blood drawn. Mommy collected my urine sample at home, so there was no pee-pee needle this time...THANK GAWD!

My health is pretty good for an old man cat, but my urine still has a little blood. We have to wait for my blood test results to come in and then the doctor will know if I need anything else.

Compared to Hazel, who sent Daddy to the doctor today, I practically had a halo over my head!

 

I am just fine!

Aside from some blood in my urine, my test results were all as good as can be expected for an almost 17 year old mancat! The medicine I am taking is slowing down the progression of my kidney disease...for now. I lost some weight, but my weight fluctuates quite a lot, so it is nothing to be alarmed about just yet. I don't have to go back to the doctor for six months! Yiiipeeee!

At home I have been getting friskier. My arthritis slows me down a lot, but I want to do more stuff because I am feeling better and the weather is getting warmer. Mommy says she will continue to baby me like the precious little guy she thinks I am!

 

Meatloafs and jellybeans

We all know what a meatloaf is. It's a kitty laying down in a loaf with its paws hidden underneath where you can't see them!

But my favorite new pose is something Mommy calls the jellybean. I lay on my side an curl up like a little letter C. Then I put my hand near or even over my face. Mommy says I look like a cute little bean, and then the term jellybean started! Cas was doing the jellybean today too!

Are you a meatloaf or a jellybean?

 

About to turn 17!!!

Monday is the day when we celebrate my birthday! I was born in 1994, so that will make me 17 years old.

Momma watches me with a worried face. I am showing my age. Daddy and Mommy are giving me extra lovies and hugs and kissies.

I was sent to my family by Angel Abby, my Mommy's precious dog, the weekend after Abby left for Heaven. I heard Mommy tell Daddy that Abby came to her in a dream last week to tell her that she is coming for me soon. Mommy was very upset by this dream! She wants me to stay here with her. Hopefully it was just a silly dream, because I plan to stick around.

Someone has to be HOH and keep that little Orange Gilmore in line!

 

Purr power needed here!

Our Mommy has a friend all the way in California, and she accidentally lost a kitty she was minding for a friend. She is freaking out! Please send some purrs so our friend can find the kitty!

 

Power of the purr...never question it!

Well, thanks to all of your purrs, our friend has located the kitty that escaped last Monday while she was catsitting for it. Sam was found back at his own house half a mile away this morning. He found his way all the home by himself and was sleeping at the bottom of the people bed!

That Sam sure is smart! Although I don't know why he decided to check out of the house he was staying in and try to find his own house for almost a week! But he did, and we are so relieved and grateful for our friend, who was distraught at the thought of losing her friend's cat.

Never question the power of the purr!

 

Life of a country gentleman/old man cat

Back in the day, I would find Mommy's constant babying of me to be embarrassing. But now I realize...I get lots of cool stuff from acting cute and needy!

Most of my time is spent asleep on the big bed or the smaller guest room bed. Lately my preference is the guest room. Everything around the house is designed for my convenience and comfort. Stairs for both beds, litterboxes everywhere, a fountain upstairs so I don't have to walk all the way down the stairs if I get thirsty, etc.

I am getting skinnier and less active, but still seem happy, alert and definitely have my appetite.

But sometimes I like to surprise my mom by showing her I am not a total invalid. The other day, she had chicken noodle soup from Panera. She ate all the stuff but left the broth. Well, that broth smelled so yummy that I climbed all the way up on the couch by myself, climbed over the arm and got on the table with the cup of broth! It was so worth it...delicious!

Mommy let me have as much as I wanted, and then she cuddled me to sleep by her side.

Today I got up for a bit and seemed to need some attention. Mommy surprised me by heating up the leftover broth and giving it to me! I did not realize she saved it for me! It was so yummy, and when my tummy was all full of soup, it was time to go back to my nap, which I did.

Every cat loves the wood stove, but they always also want to go out on the porch because it looks nice out. After they get outside on the porch, they realize that it's actually much nicer inside by the fire. Silly youngsters. There is nothing better than the warm bed and warm house and warm broth from Panera...and cuddling with Mommy.

 

I could use some purrs

Hi all...if you could spare some purrs, I could sure use them. I have been feeling ok, but I have not felt like eating and have lost a lot of pounds. My blood tests show I have a large inflammation or infection somewhere that has not responded to prednisone or antibiotics, but we don't know what is causing it. I had pictures taken of inside my tummy last week, but they did not reveal anything. So tomorrow I am going for pictures of my tummy using something called an ultrasound. I have to go to the special animal hospital in New Haven at 11AM, and we should have results tomorrow afternoon.

I know all my friends are great at purring, and the power of the paw is very powerful indeed. I think the thing I want most is to get some answers tomorrow. I don't want to go through this ordeal tomorrow and still not know what is wrong. We need to know what this is so I can get better and my family can decide what is best for me.

 

A stuck poopie

Friends, I am struggling with a poopie that does not want to come out. Mommy took me to the animal hospital in New Haven today, and they stuck something up my butt called an enema and put water under my skin with a needle to hydrate me.

They did all sort of awful things, like stick their hands up my butt. They felt that I have a stuck poopie that won't come out. If I can't get it out tonight, I have to go to the doctor tomorrow for fluids (IV this time) and manual removal of the poopie!

I have to tell my pal Newman what I learned today. I learned that if a cat gets dehydrated, their poops can dry out and not want to come out. They can even get so dry that they stick to your insides. Then you have to get your body and poops watered with an IV so the poop will moisten and come out. It would sound kind of cool to have your insides watered if it was not happening to me.

Now I smell bad and no one wants to sit with me. I hope tomorrow is better than today!

 

My Grandma Mimi left for Heaven :-(

My Grandma Linda (aka Mimi) left for Heaven recently. Daddy is so very sad about losing his Mommy, and that makes Mommy sad, and then all us kitties are sad. Cas likes to help by being silly and making them laugh. Mommy and Daddy just got back from Grandma Mimi's funeral in Florida. They said they made a slideshow with pictures in it from Mimi's life. Guess what? I was in it too! One time, Mimi came to stay at our house, and I posed for a photo with her on the couch. So I got to be in the slideshow too. I was so honored to be part of it. Mimi was a beautiful lady, inside and out.

I am still sick, struggling with chronic constipation and tummy woes. Daddy is also sick. The cut he got on his leg chasing Gilmore in August got infected with some very bad stuff, and the wound is not healing. If you could spare some purrs for me and my daddy, we sure could use some.
