Friends, this past week was very trying for this old mancat. I spent the night in the hospital and got one enema after another. Torture! When I got home, my parents were worried sick. I was just motionless lump for a while. Finally, I started to eat again. Last night, I ate four whole entire shrimps, PLUS my kitty food! Today is for napping. I am going to need your purrs though to get all the poopies my body is making out of me. A cat that can't poop is a cat whose days are numbered. Please purr that my new medicine will work and my insides will start working again. I am down to 8.5 pounds.

Last week we added cardiomyopathy to my ever-growing list of ailments. I have another pill to take! Daddy sure does have to give me a lot of pills now.

Please purr that I will eat more and get stronger.

 

I am stepping down

At this time, I must tender my resignation as Head of Household, aka Top Cat. I am unable to carry out my day to day HOH duties of chasing other kitties off the bed or sofa, asserting my dominance with mommy and daddy, using my very big hands to swat kitties. I am still revered as an elder statesman, but I want to use what time I have left with my family for relaxing and dreaming of catnip fields. My every whim is catered to, and I am comfortable. I have my own room, my own food, my own fountain, my own queen sized bed, my own people to carry me, and even someone to wipe my face and rear for me. The only part I am unhappy with is the thrice daily dose of medicine and the once daily needle I get to water me. I know my mommy and daddy mean well, so I tolerate it. I can't stand to see their wet faces when they look at me or talk about me.

It's not clear yet who will take over as the leader of our family. I know it won't be mommy or daddy. I had been grooming Gilmore, but he is not ready. Cas is making a play to get the honor, but the other cats show him no respect. Maybe a lady cat will be the leader now. After all, we are a progressive family!

I am going to rest by the fire now.

 

My tenth life starts today at the Bridge!

Hello kitties! I am one day into my tenth life at the Bridge. I was ready to leave a few weeks ago, but I fought hard to give my Mommy time to adjust to my leaving. We spent the last few weeks cuddling on the couch and watching our favorite shows. One of my favorite shows is a really old one called Highway to Heaven. It's about a man named Jonathan (Mommy calls him Pa for some reason) who is an angel sent to earth to help humans. I really identified with his character for some reason. Maybe it's because I was sent from heaven to help Mommy many years ago, right after she lost her beloved Abby. Or maybe it's because I am an angel now. Hey, I wonder if Pa lives here! I will have to look him up.

I spent every night I could sleeping on top of Mommy as always, but there were some nights I needed to sleep alone. Sometimes when you don't feel well, you just don't want someone all over you, you know? Also, I needed Mommy to get used to it gradually. When I felt she was ready and when my illness became too much, I stopped eating. I went from 8 to 7 pounds in one week. I had stopped eating before, but this time I did not start again. The doctor stole some of my blood on Thursday, and he said I was very, very sick. On my last day at home, yesterday, Butters joined me in the heated bed with his body pressed against mine to keep me warm. He never did that before, but I guess he knew I needed a little help.

I am disappointed that I could not stay with Mommy long enough to watch Season 2 of Dallas. Maybe I will ask Calvin if I can get a cloud with a tv so I can watch with Mommy from here. Of course, I miss my Daddy too. He always had the tough jobs like putting pills and needles in me, but I loved him so very much. Every Saturday during football season, he would make shrimp and watch football, and I used to eat the shrimps and watch with him all day.

I haven't gotten my wings yet, but I heard from other angels here that Gilmore really stepped up last night and slept next to Mommy in the bed for the first time. Boy, was she surprised to wake up and find him there! Hee-hee. Then today, I heard Cas was on the couch with Mommy and Daddy. You know, I was thinking maybe Mommy and Daddy should look for an external candidate to fill the vacant role of Top Cat, but now I think that maybe it will take more than one kitty to fill my giant paws. Maybe Gilmore and Cas can get the job done if they work together.

Well, I need to get back to angel orientation. Thank you to all the kitties and families that have been so supportive to me and my family.
