Wow time sure flies fast! This Saturday will already be the second anniversary of Meowmy saving my life once again.
I just about lost my life due to crystals. The vet wanted $500.00 cash before she would even help me. Meowmy only had $100.00 and was crying and the vet didn’t care, she even had my paw shaved, ready for the needle and she told Meowmy that she wouldn’t allow Meowmy to take me out of there!!
I wasn’t in any pain, but you can read all about that sad event in my past entries.
The one big thing we learned I shouldn’t eat hard food, only the soft medicated stuff. I love it now and Meowmy even adds water to it, too. We thought about trying some other stuff friends mentioned, but I have gone thru this situation twice and after the last big scare we just won’t take the chance. A couple of months ago I was on meds for over a week, symptoms starting up. I now have a wonderful caring vet that works with us and lets us charge as needed. That’s the way it should be!!
I’m not sure what one would call this, second chance on life, but whatever its called we sure are thankful and grateful .
This is Friday’s Meowmy: When we were going thru this sad situation a couple of years ago, we weren’t on Catster all that much but I do remember getting onto a puter to write about the ordeal and being able to read the support from fellow Catster members helped me so much. I will never forget the love and support we get from Catster and so appreciate it. THANK YOU!!!
We know of other kibbies who have had to leave for Rainbow Bridge due to crystals. Its one of the saddest situations. Friday has always shown symptoms where at least he has been able to get treated before it became too late, and for this I am thankful. Others have not been so fortuanet and my heart goes out to them. This is one of the reasons why Fridays diet stays the way it is. It may cost lots, but Friday is my baby and he is worth every penny I spend on his special food. I can always cut something out of my life for any of my furbabies to have something for them.
I remember this guy in town had heard I had sold my car to pay that vet to help Friday and this guy said I was stupid to do that. I listend to his talk, how he had a $300.00 limit for a vet bill, and if it cost more than that, well then the animal would get put down, and an older woman whom I thought was my friend agreed with him!! All I can say is everyone has their opinion on how much they can spend on an animal. Personally my furbabies come first and I have no limit. I will do what it takes. I believe a furbaby will let us know when their time has come, and by no means was it Fridays time. I sat on my back steps crying and crying, and I was all by myself, no one was there to help me. But I had made a promise to Buddy while he was dying that I would love and take care of Friday for him and I kept that promise!!
Today Friday is eight years old and just the smartest, cutest kibbie ever~he is so smart, he will go running in front of me, into the room where his personal box is kept, to urinate in the box so I can hear and see how much he has done!! I always tell him, It’s music to Meowmy’s ears Friday!!
I also make sure Friday does not gain too much weight, overweight males seem to have this problem a little more, too.
So, you see, the 3rd of August will always be a very important day in our lives ~ just not sure what to call it ~all I know is that I am so thankful for God helping us and watching over Friday.

MOL!! Dis morning, like at 6 am, I hoped up into bed wif Meowmy cuz I saw her open her eyes and thought it a good time to let her know I'm there!
She stroked my forehead and I really liked it a lot and then she stopped!! hey, don't stop!! HMMM
I wanted to have F*U*N!!
So what's a boy like me to do? well, I looked down and thought, "hey haven't purrlayed wif dem tooties of Meowmy's in a while"
Now purrlaying wif toes is lots of fun, MOL!! I laff a lot when I am doing this cuz Meowmy is squealing and moving her feet fast and I get to run and jump fast too!!
So I got Meowmy's toes again this morning!!~MOL!! Meomwy laffed too and even said its been a long time since I did this.
I've been doing this for eight years now and Meowmy said one day she is really going to miss this!! She can't get super mad about toe attacks, as this is a fun game just between me and my Meowmy!!

Dis is how I imagined it after Meowmy told us all about the trip :
Ok so we got to Petsmart after a two hour ride ~ I rode up front wif Meowmy. The girls are smaller so they had the back seat. We had snacks and water and the younger gurls had some activity toys to keep dem busy, but they didn't use dem as they were busy looking out the windows watching the scenery.
We got to Petsmart and I helped Meowmy get the gurls in the cart, Neiko and Bailey were put in the front and Bijou sat on a small stool like the princess she is and I stood up in the back wif mai nose pointing forwards. I was the navigator, telling Meowmy when to stop so we can check things out!!
First fing we did was sign up fur the Petperks card and found out about all the benefits, like for instance, if we buy sumfin and don't like it, even if we tried it, including food, we have two months to return it!!....this is the most pawtastic pet service we ever heard of!!
ok, so we found the Laurel Burch pet carrier fur Neiko's Birfday as we each had $5.00 to spend so we pooled our funds togefur and Meowmy put in the rest and we got that...then we found some toy mousies that rattle wif feather tails on sale fur 26 cents each so bought four of those and a glitter ball for 26 cents. Meowmy bought Neiko a really neat toy from Petlinks. Its a bird in a cage that chirps just like a real bird
Bird in a Cage toy
....since Neiko loves to watch dem birdies out the window and Meowmy got a bag of treats for the gurls, a ho foolistic kind, Mighty Lion, and grain free too. I am not a treat kind of guy and these were on sale for 4.99 so the gurls only get two each a day on those! Will buy more of those in the future
Mighty Lion treats
We got Exquiste Cat litter 40 lbs for 9.99 and really like this one, but wanted Dr. Elsies. Only Dr. Elsies comes in big bags and Meowmy was thinking wee would probable knock the bag over and spill the litter all over the floor ~ so have to get a container first to put that in
The gurls got some new canned food to try ~ on the pricey side!! ~ and then also some Friskies ~ good thing this was bought as Neiko does not care for the Innov brand food. There was three or four high end brand names bought to try..Baiely and Bijou ate the Innov and of course, I am on my special food for life but can only get at the vets.
This first trip was a "let's check this out" we can also shop online.
We will definitely be going back to this store!!!
There are collars to buy and Meowmy is kicking herself right now as there was a real pretty one that was pink wif ladybugs on it, purrfect for Bailey, so keeping our paws crossed we can still buy it the next time we're there!!
There is also Laurel Burch pet bowls and this is on our Chrittmas wish list!!

How often have we heard this saying? Lots I suppose and yet how true these words are.
I have furiends who are furry sick wif cancer and so does mai Meowmy. Now she will go down a path once again, but as a friend, a sad path ~ one that is preparing meomwy and her friends for a "See You Later" day in the future.
Meowmy has a friend who has cancer and they just found out the numbers are thru the roof and the doctors can't do anything more, except give more medicine for in the mean time.
I know this friend, its mai Meowmuys boss, Carol, and we can't say anything to anyone in town. How do you hold anger, frustration, sadness inside and not share it? The owners of the quilt store told Meomwy their wishes of wanting to protect the business and not let anyone know how bad Carol is...will abide by this wish.
Mai furiends are Carol and her husbands kibbies and we halp look after all eleven of them whenever Carol and Wayne have to go away...I feel really bad for the kibbies, too ~ cause their Meowmy is sick
So now Meowmy will be working a lot more at the quilt store and helping them as much as possible.
We've gone down this road before when mai Uncle Dave had cancer and had to leave in 2008 ~ it still chokes Meowmy up ~ oh she is crying really hard now
Getting angry and frustrated and wanting to scream is a natural feeling but putting one foot in front of the other is needed too!!~
Meowmy has gone thru a lot and is prepared for such a time as this...its going to be hard, but with friends keeping us in thoughts and prayers it will help and so will be able to come here to Catster and loving and sharing and having fun and chuckles be a soothing balm too!
We don't know how long this journey will be but we will go down the road set in front of us...I'm going over to their house to purrlay wif Sweet William (we can be twins, we look so much alike) and zander and Opie, too and the rest of the kibbies....we're going to have fun and I will also listen and hug mai furiends as they share they're feelings too!!
Mai kibbie furiends know that by laying on their Meomwys lap and cuddling wif her, they are sending healing and loving vibrations into their Meomwys body!!..I'm going to remind them to keep doing that too!
Pawese remember our furiends and Meowmy in your thoughts and prayers

Well it's going to be officially summer in a couple of days but with the heat and humidity already creeping up there, Meomwy has been busy trying to keep us all cool inside the house
There are other things covering mai windows now~and Mr. Sunshine is having a hard time getting in!! MOL!!~Meowmy says that is her aim!!
At night I get to have the windows open for fresh, cool air and it sure feels nice....I get so catcitied, mai tail starts to twitch, MOL!!
I don't know what it's like to be an outdoor kibbie, heck I've never been outside on the ground, don't know what the grass feels like on mai paws so the question is, how do the ofur kibbies who are outside stand the heat and humidity? ~ it makes mai Meowmy sick so it would probably make me sick, too.
We live beside a farm and the two doggies come on over, a great White Pryreens and a German Shephard..they are nice and friendly, Meowmyt makes sure there is a bucket of water in the shade fur them if they want it or fur any fur that is in need of water to quench their thirst and help keep their body temperature in check.
I am just in the process of making mai list from a flyer Meowmy found online fur a Petsmart...Yay we have dem up here in Canada!! Meowmy is going to go and check them out on the 30th when she goes into the city to visit and shop
Never too early to start planning Chrittmas wish list!! MOL!! *Friday lauffs and smiles big*
Well maybe what I will put at the top of the list is fur all the kibbies to be well taken care of in this heat...especially the ones hoomans pass by out in the world..pawese take a mement to fink how a small act of kindness can help a kibbie survive and thrive in the intense summer heat.
