Empathy is great! A heart from a friend.

I got a heart from Rizza recently. Our friend Alfie died in an accident recently and we were all upset about it. Rizza thought empathy sucks since one person feeling bad can make many people feel bad. I had to tell her empathy makes us strong. It helps unite us and helps us along life's difficult path. Empathy motivates us to do things. It works the other way too. Happiness spreads the same way sadness does. If something wonderful happens to one of us, many people feel happy. An old Buddhist saying goes that happiness never diminishes no matter how much you share. Empathy makes us strong. We need to remember that in good times and in bad.

"A heart to merge with the big heart you already have. Please accept this heart with love especially because of your lovely words about Alfie.
Love Rizza"

 

Vet Trauma

Daddy took me to my annual vet trip this morning. I hated it. I hate being touched like that. The vet couldn't do a full examination because I was growling too much. I even took a swipe at Daddy! He hoped by bringing me in by myself I wouldn't be as bad. Instead they thought I was worse. Next year they want Daddy to give me a sedative to keep me calm. Next week I'm going in for teeth cleaning. They can examine me when I'm knocked out. OK that sounds a bit creepy. Next weekend the girls go in. Wait until they get a load of Pepi!

 

Another update

Daddy is in his third week at the new job. He leaves a little earlier and gets home a little later than before, but not as early or as late as when he worked downtown. He does seem happier now that things are back to normal. I've returned to greeting him when he gets home and taking naps near him so he could pet me. I get more tummy rubs now. I love tummy rubs. For a little while anyway. Not much else going on. I like to sleep on Daddy's pillow when he goes to bed. I purr and make biscuits on his head. Live is good.

 

Daddy got an offer

Daddy went back for a second interview today and got an offer! So he won't be hanging around home all the time like he did for the past month. We're going to miss him, but he'll be home like before and he'll have money to make sure we can stay here without grandpawents helping.

 

One Month

It's been a month since Daddy lost his job. We're getting by, no worries yet. We've been spending a lot of time together. I love being held. Daddy says there's a good chance he'll get this one job which pays more. The commute is a little longer, but still shorter when it was just Lena and me. In the mean time I'm enjoying him being home. It's like one long weekend except when he went away for Thanksgiving.

Well first I want to pay my respects to Calvin ~ Kneed On. It's been a few weeks, but Daddy has been busy. First he got a new computer which is quieter and has lights. It's also shorter which makes it hard to climb on.

The bad news is Daddy lost his job a few days ago. He promises he'll do everything he can to keep us together. His parents can help and there's some money saved. He's going to be stressed and I want to help him any way I can. We're a family and we'll get through this together.

 

I got a Rossette

I got a Rossette from Cassidy. She's a precious kitty who had a horrible past before getting adopted by a loving family. I hope that with time Cassidy will overcome her past. Even if she can't, she knows she has a loving and safe home.

Thank you so much for your generous gift of my furever star. It meant a lot to me. Thank you for helping make my day with your gift. I am happy with my home but scarred furever, I fear.
Love,
Cassidy

 

Kitty fountain

The kitty fountain came recently. Pepi and Lena took to it quickly. It took me about 2 weeks but tonight Daddy saw me taking a nice long drink from it. He's relieved that I like it. It's still not as good as faucet water.

Last Friday Daddy brought home a book case. It was fun to play on. I jumped up top ... and slid off because my old family declawed me. But I got the hang of it and was sitting pretty batting at Pepi under me.

I'm going to back to grooming Lena now.

 

Daddy is home!

It's been an interesting few weeks. First Daddy has his friends over. I get a few pets. Pepi knocked a drink on someone's books. Very naughty girl! The next morning Daddy left to visit his human family for a weekend. The nice people with the dog came over and I got some wet food! Yummy! Daddy gave us the rest of the food when he got home. Unfortunately two days afterward I asked to go into the garage. I led everycat in for some fun. It was unfortunate since Daddy was very tired and busy and he forgot about us until the next morning. I can't believe he forgot about his three loving kitties! No wonder he slept so poorly that night. And that night he went to help out at the local sci-fi convention. He was gone for part of that night and most of Friday and Saturday and Sunday! We were so lonely! We stuck around him for days afterwards until things got back to normal. In the mean time I'm still sneaking drinks of milk from Daddy's breakfast bowl.

And some good news! Daddy is getting me a kitty drinking fountain! It should come in a week or so. Now I won't be hanging around the sink. Daddy hopes I like it. It's expensive. We guy kitties need to drink more water. And if I like it, my grandmeowmy might get it for her kitties. They're older than me so they need to take better care of themselves.

 

Hello!

It's been a while and I wanted to let everyone know what's been going on here. Not much has changed. I sneak out on occasion when the front door is open. Today it was just for a few seconds when Daddy tried to harvest some herbs. It looks like 1/3 of the pot isn't growing anything. I barely had time to roll over before he scooped me up and brought me back in. I spent the rest of the afternoon meowing at the window.

Pepi wants to wrestle with me on occasion. I don't like it much. She's almost as big as me and she has CLAWS! Lena is much more fun to play with, especially those times when she doesn't want to play.

I'm still hanging out with Daddy. For a while I was moody but it passes. I'm a cat, it's what I do. I'm happy to be here. I was abandoned when I was 4. No one wanted a middle-aged cat, except Daddy. That's why I bonded with him so fast. He accepted me for what I am from the start. Sometimes he'll just pick me up and hold me. It usually happens when he reads about some poor kitty on Catster who went to the rainbow bridge. One day I'm not going to be with him. I won't share his pillow at night or try to grab a few quick swallows of milk in the morning or greet him when he gets home. Daddy will be very sad so he wants to spend time with me while he can. I don't want to go for a long time. Thank you Daddy.
