OH. MY. GAWD.

Oh goodness me! I should have known there was trouble when Mommy left me on the porch last night all by myself with my water and some special cat litter that enables her to collect a sample of my pee.

Sure enough, she woke me up from my nap today and shoved me into the carrier! Thank goodness the ride to the vet is only 10 minutes, because Mommy is sure she could not stand much more of my crying!

This is what happened when I got there:

-I peed all over my carrier. They just wrapped up all my wet stuff and handed it back to Mommy in a plastic bag, then relined my carrier with dry stuff.

-I peed all over the examining table.

-I peed all over the hand of one of the vet techs who was holding me down for my needle.

-When I was getting my needle, I screamed bloody murder so loudly, that the doctor wondered aloud what the folks in the nail salon next door must think he is doing!

-I scratched the doctor.

-It took two techs and a bath towel to hold me down so the doctor could draw my blood.

Mommy likes that this doctor does all the "bad stuff" like needles right in the room, but she also says it's very tough to watch. The doctor and his techs kept on asking Mommy if SHE was alright!!! Hey, I am the one getting poked like a pincushion!

Anyhow, my urinary crystals are gone! I gained back the weight I lost when I got sick with hyperthyroidism. The doctor says I feel strong and muscle-y to him. My urine is a little too diluted, but the doctor said this might be from my prescription food, so he prescribed yet another kind of food! My heart murmur is gone, and my ears are just a little waxy.

Now we just have to wait for my blood results to come back to see if my thyroid is any better and how my kidneys and other organs are functioning. It might be almost time for Radiocat this time!

Oh, and he said my sneezing and coughing is nothing to worry about. My lungs are clear, and I probably just have a touch of the allergies.

Mommy was mortified at how badly I behaved, but the doctors and staff just smiled and said it's ok! That is partly why we love them! Still, I am sure they were not sorry to see me go.

I was glad to get home, and glad to get the Trout Feast that Mommy promised I would get for being a good boy. Even though I was NOT good, she still loves me so and wanted to make me feel better. All is forgiven now!

Oh...yummy yummy Trout Feast! Is there any problem you can't solve?

 

Bloodwork is back!

Well, I guess all that effort at the v-e-t on Tuesday was worth it!

The v-e-t office (otherwise known as the place that takes all our money) called today. The doctor said my thyroid level is finally purrfect! All my numbers were good!

I have to have my urine retested after four weeks on my new food. If my specific gravity comes out normal then (it's abnormal now) then I am off to get Radiocat! Then no more pills, and my thyroid will be cured furever!

I am kind of feeling under the weather today. Mommy actually let me skip my thyroid pills last night because I threw up and lost my appetite for most of the day. I seem slightly better today, but Mommy is still very worried. Daddy says that is just because Mommy worries way too much. I hope he is right!

I was just telling my new friend, Spunky, about my favorite show, Meerkat Manor. It's on every Friday on Animal Planet.

Well, Mommy and I just watched it, and something very bad and sad happened on tonight's episode. I won't spoil it, in case anycat has not seen it yet.

But I had to step outside to get some air, and Mommy has yet to stop crying since we finished watching it. :-(

 

We are bankrupt!

Mommy says we are bankrupt. No, the cat doctor has not bankrupted us, although he is still working on it.

It's our Catster bank account that is bankrupt. We have been all out of rosettes and zealies for DAYS now! I found out that my buddy Alex is COTD, and I can't even run over and smother him with love! I have a whole yard full of acorns, but no way to share them! I can't believe our bankruptcy coincided with new rosettes!

Mommy did pay for a whole bunch of new zealies (days ago), but they have yet to appear on our account. Mommy sent a message to HQ, and they are supposed to be there tomorrow. Then we can make up for lost time!

Anymeow, I am sitting here on Mommy's lap while she types for me. It's hard to type with such big furry hands like mine. I am purring very loudly for all my sick friends on Catster.

 

Paypal, you are no pal of mine!

Finally...after days and days of waiting for Paypal to pay Dogster, we are no longer bankrupt! We have lots of zealies now. I have NO idea why it took so long for this to go through. There is no reason for the delay that we can see. I guess next time, Mommy should not let us become bankrupt before ordering the new zealies to allow enough time for my so-called Pal to pay up.

 

Showdown in the dining room...with all 3 cats!!!

When Mommy and Daddy first brought home Kiki, I did not like her. That was well over two years ago, and I still don't much like her! But today while I was in my sunporch office getting some sun and sleep, Kiki came to see me out there with an urgent matter to discuss. I told her to have a seat, but not in my chair! Apparently, she has been observing some disturbing activity inside the house!

That little scruffy thing they call Catsy...she used to only stay in her room all day, even though her door was open. But lately, she's been using our water fountain! She's been sleeping on the rug Kiki and I use when we don't feel well! Also, Kiki told me that this cat does not show the proper respect to the Lord and Lady of the Manor. (That is me and Kiki!) She just lays there, hissing at Kiki, who is only trying to sneak past without being noticed!

I told Kiki to pull herself together, and that I would purrsonally handle this little matter myself. I wish Kiki could be trusted to deal with these things on her own, as I am busy sleeping, but she can't help it if she's just a girl. A sweet, pushover of a girl.

So tonight, I absolutely insisted that Mommy let me in the house, even though I knew that some new cat was on our rug! Mommy decided to go ahead and let me in, reasoning that if the scruffy one was really afraid of me, she would go back upstairs where she belongs. That is what I thought too! I thought she would see me getting closer and closer and...run! (Well, she can't run, but she can walk fast.)

But Kiki was right. She just stays right where she is...roaring her little roar. She even took a swing at me! My feelings were very hurt, so Mommy was hugging me and giving me treats! Not now...MOM! I need to look tough, not like a big Momma's boy! Geesh!

Time for Plan B. I jumped up on the dining room chair and then the table (I rarely do this) and called an emergency meeting with Kiki. We both paced all around the table top, fretting about what to do. I said to Kiki, "Maybe if we both stand together, she will get scared and run away!" So we both kept pacing and pacing. The scruffy one just looked at us as if we were nuts. Then she closed her eyes, and kind of looked like she was sleeping!

Then, she got up! Goody! She is going away! It worked! But not so fast. She was getting up to move closer to the table, so then she was laying down in the hallway. "This is UNACCEPTABLE!" I meowed.

I got down, and I was going to just give her a piece of my paw. But as soon as I would get close, Mommy would gently nudge me to move on. Finally, I gave up and went back on my porch office to come up with a new strategy. I will have to sleep on it tonight, and come up with a better plan for tomorrow!

 

Diary of the Day...MOI???

Wowee! I could not believe it when Mommy came out on the sunporch to tell me I was selected as Catster's Diary of the Day! I am so very excited! Mommy hugged me a kissed me! Kiki just yawned. Figures. I guess it takes a lot to impress her!

I am very honored, and I would like to thank Catster HQ, and also all of my fans who sent rosettes, p-mails and friend requests! What a great day. First, it's summer in October, I get to spend the whole day enjoying it on my chair in the sun. Then, I get such a great honor from Catster! Maybe now I will start getting some respect from the other cats around here!

 

We have a virus!

Our computer that we use for Catster is broken. Mommy says it got a virus somehow. It probably got it from that Catsy cat. She always has something contagious.

Daddy is going to fix it over the weekend. Can you believe that our very own daddy is a software engineer, and we still have to wait days for service? We will probably have to catch up with all our friends after this is fixed.

 

You can vote for us now!

Today we entered the 3rd Annual World's Coolest Dog & Show on Catster! It might be the third one, but it's our first time entering.

If you are so inclined, you may vote for me and my family:

We are so sad about losing our dear friend Amelia today. Catsy has barely gotten out of bed today. I mean she's gotten up even less than she usually does. She does not even want to write in her diary about the photo contest, so I said I would do it. She will too when she is feeling better. She is taking this very hard, and Mommy is too.

I tried to jump up and sit on Mommy's lap at the computer to make her smile, but I missed and just clawed her skin instead. Ooopsie! I didn't mean it, Mommy!

 

Halloween treats and toys from Cool Calvin and Co!

Yiiiiiippppppppeeeeeeeeeee!

Yesterday we got a special Halloween treat in the mail from those cute little costumed cats in Kentucky! Of course, I mean Samoa, Calvin, Violet, Gleek, Spunky and Sugar! They are so very nice to send us treats!

We got Greenies (our favorite!) and a little pumpkin-ish toy with feathers that I swatted all over the kitchen because I was so excited! Then it went under the radiator, so I went to see what else we got! We got a little toy shaped like a ring with ribbons, and I loved that so much that I tried to eat the ribbons! Mommy said, "No, no!" and took it from me before I could finish eating it. Hey, I wanted that! Also we got a fluffy pink Barbie earring toy! I guess that is for the girls. (Don't tell anyone, but that one is my favorite!)

We just LOVE our treats and toys, and we love Samoa, Calvin, Violet, Gleek, Spunky and Sugar! We loved the little card too! Thank you, friends! You sure are good pals.
