Barbecue in November!

Today Mommy and Daddy had a bunch of people over for a barbecue in November! Mommy put Kiki and me in the guest room with our beds, litter, food and water. Catsy stayed in her pink bed.

One of people that came over was our old next door neighbor named Janet. Janet is a super nice lady that loves me! At our old house, I was an indoor/outdoor kitty, and I used to visit Janet too! Janet is the one who first explained to Mommy when she found me that I am a boy kitty and not a girl kitty as Mommy thought. (Thanks for clearing that up, Janet!) Mommy allowed Janet to come upstairs and pet me for a while, and I was so happy to see her! She said I sure have mellowed out in my old age!

One time at our old house, I was missing for a whole day. Mommy was outside crying and crying and looking for me, and then Janet (who was on her way to work) came along and offered to help her look for me. Guess where I was? I was in Janet's garage! Her son had opened the door the night before and I went inside, but then he closed the door and I could not get out! (Thanks for finding me, Janet!)

I am so glad I got to see her again.

 

My test results

Well, we got through week 1 with no Mommy! Well, we still have a mommy, but she is never home.

The v-e-t called with my blood results. They said the return of my symptoms (weight loss, vomiting, heart murmur, abnormal kidney values) is likely due to the fact that my thyroid levels increased dramatically again. My thyroid was regulated just a few weeks ago, but suddenly starting to get away from us again. This is typical with hyperthyroidism. It gets worse over time.

So the doctor recommended two things:

-increase my dose on the thyroid pills (yuck!)
-change food again

The v-e-t staff left the food outside the office door for Mommy because their hours conflict her new hours. We will start the transition to the new food. Sigh. I am so frustrated that in spite of being such a good boy and always taking my medicine for Daddy, that I still am not getting better.

I am feeling ok and acting normal, except for an occasional poop outside the box. Mommy wonders if I am just letting her know I miss her! But when I first got diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, I was not using the litterbox at all, so it could be that too. I have been good the last few days with no accidents or throwing up.

Hopefully this new strategy will get us somewhere. Thank you to all of you who sent pmails, rosettes and nice thoughts and purrs to me.

 

Heartbroken

Tonight when Mommy came home, I was eating my supper and then I heard Mommy get on the computer to check Catster. Suddenly I heard Mommy cry out, "Ohnolordhavemercy!" like it was all one word. I came to see what was wrong, and she was just sitting there with her mouth hanging open and her head in her hands. I asked her what happened, and she gave me the dreadful news that sweet McKenna had left for heaven only days after her brother Buddie. I jumped right up on Mommy's desk to read this for my own self because I could not believe my ears.

Then I rubbed my head all over Mommy and was alternating between purring and meowing. She did not even yell at me to get off her work clothes. Instead, she folded me all up and held me close, and she said it's a good thing she can't read Catster at work because she would have to explain to everyone why she could not stop crying.

We are beyond heartbroken for Buddie and McKenna's family. This is just too much. To be left so suddenly with no furfaces must be unbearable.

PLEASE help Buddie and McKenna's Mommy and Daddy by keeping them in your thoughts, especially through the holidays. Please let them know you are thinking of them often. We have to help them get through this somehow. It is what Buddie and McKenna would have done for any of our pawrents.

 

A tribute to my dear friend, Wally

You know, I just don’t understand how life can be so unspeakably cruel sometimes. Why are so many of my best Catster friends deciding to celebrate Christmas in Heaven this year instead of with their earth families and furrriends? And multiple cats within the same family too?

I am just a simple house cat, so I can not comprehend these things. I am reluctant to even speak of my good friend Wally’s sudden and heartbreaking departure for Heaven because I am afraid that anything I say will sound trite. But I will say that knowing how hard it would be for anycat to adjust to a world without Wally, I can’t even imagine how hard it will be for his mommy and for Alfie, that little orange lovebug.

We found this song a while back right after Wally’s sister, Sydney Rose also left for Heaven, just a few short weeks ago. The lyrics say:

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you can not hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you, dear

That song made us think of the photo of Sydney Rose, with her wings all lit up like the splendid angel that she is, and now we will always thing of Wally when we hear it too. I can just picture beautiful Sydney Rose flying down to take Wally from the comfort of his mommy’s arms to Heaven to be with her and all the other furfaces we love and miss so much.

I put this special song on my page for you all to hear and remember Wally and Sydney Rose too.

Wally, you were a super-cool dude and a great friend to our family. I’ll see you on the other side.

 

Holiday Princess Time

Last August, when Mommy and Daddy went to Cape Cod, they bought Kiki and I some Christmas flair to wear on our collars! Mommy actually remembered she had them AND was able to find them!

So last weekend, when Kiki and I got our new Christmas collars, Mommy put our new tags on.

Mine says "Meowy Christmas" and Kiki's says "Holiday Princess". Mommy and Daddy said that Kiki is Daddy's little princess, and I am very Meowy, so the tags suit us just right!

Speaking of holiday princesses, Mommy came home with a Christmas tree yesterday...for Catsy! Stay tuned for photos coming of Catsy with her very own tree...probably next week some time.

 

Deck the halls with meow-meow-meow-meow

I sure do love to meow a lot! I meow so much that Mommy started to meow along with me. She sings "meow" in place of all the words of Christmas songs. I am her inspiration!

Can you guess this one?

Oh, meow meow meow, oh meow meow meow
How meowy are you meow meows?

I have a much better voice than Mommy, but it's still fun to meow together.

 

Peace on Earth. Can it Be?

Meowlo, Catsters! I am just catching up on my correspondence before Mommy and Daddy leave for Grandma Mimi's house and I can't get on the computer!

Mommy is having each of us put a special song on our page. I picked Mommy's favorite Christmas song ever. It's about peace on earth. I wish people would learn to be nicer and more tolerant of each other and of animals.

This has been a tough year for me, but I hope the next one will be better! Maybe I can finally get Radiocat this year and be cured of all of my ailments. I am looking forward to winter nights in front of the fire and also to when it's summer again and I can go on my porch all day again.

I feel sad for all the families of cats who are not with us any longer. I hope they will find some comfort and peace. Remember, we will see them again someday. As Catsy's best friend, Sky, always says...it is promised!

Peace and love to all my friends in Catsterland!

 

Who let the claws out?

Me!

Tonight my Mommy and I watched a cool show about lions! You should see those guys! Wowie! I was on Mommy's lap, and she kept marveling at the lions. She loved their big paws, their roars and their shiny coats. Well, I wanted to remind her that I have have big hands too! I let out a roar and placed one of my big hands on her arm, then let the claws out! Mommy said, "Owie, that hurts, Mouse!" Well, I can't have her thinking that I am not as fierce as those lady lions on the teevee.

The weather got so warm here that I can go on my porch again for a bit. I love it! Mommy loves it too because she can let Catsy out, but mostly Catsy wants to just stay in her bed.

Not ANOTHER cat!!!

Tonight I heard Mommy tell Daddy that she saw a little orange and white kitty at work two times now. Both times, he was just running around the campus grounds. Today he had snuck behind a fence where they had a construction area for the cafeteria addition, and he was running around in the mud and puddles.

Mommy told Daddy she desperately wants this cat, but how can she catch him? He just trots along very quickly and shows zero interest in people. Maybe someone is feeding him? Mommy can hardly go to work with a cat carrier and does not have the time to try and lure him while she is at work. At night, it is dark!

Well, it would be really hard to catch him, and Daddy said...NO MORE CATS! WE ALREADY HAVE TOO MANY CATS!!! I am with Daddy on that one, assuming he means Kiki and Catsy fall into the "too many" category!
