I am feeling better today, still a bit weak and i am drinking a lot of water but mom is hoping that is just left over from last nights problems. i have a good appetite and was able to jump up on the sofa by myself this morning. mom was so happy about that because last night i couldn't even stand up alone. my breathing and heart seem to be back to normal too.
monday morning i have an appointment with the vet for x rays to check my heart. so i will update on that after my vet visit.
mom and i are just amazed at the outpouring of love and concern for me. i am going to thank each one individually but i wanted to thank you all as my treasured Catster friends. we have never met such a loving, caring group in our lives. each message is an encouraging and precious gift. our hearts are just overflowing with the love you have sent to us and we are returning to you. there simply aren't the right words to say how we feel~as close as we can get is "We love you!, We appreciate each of you and feel so priviledged to be friends. Thank you with all our hearts. Tony and mom

(from Tony's mom)
First thank you for all the prayers. there is no doubt in my mind that is why my sweet boy is home resting on his pillow. I am overwhelmed with the love and prayers that were sent to him! Tomorrow i will answer each paw mail and gift he recieved too, but tonight i will just tell you what happened.
this evening Tony, Sammy and Stormy were all chasing each other around the house having a great time. there was no warning at all of what was to come. and Tony except for some allergies has always been super healthy.
i heard Tony throw up and went to check, he was lying on the floor in the middle of it. i tried to pick him up and he just fell over. He started panting with his mouth open really wide and drooling (sorry sweetie) he has never done anything like that before either. his little heart was beating so fast i truly thought he would never make it to the vet.
we live out a long way and the closest emergency vet to us is an hour away. while Tony's dad called the vet and got everything ready i took Tony in the bedroom closet and lay on the floor with him and just prayed. all the other cats were trying to figure out what was wrong with him and it was making it worse so we closed ourselves in and turned off the light to calm him.
as soon as we got everything ready we headed to the vet and on the way he was still having all those problems. but as we drove his breathing eased and he closed his mouth. his heart slowed down but it was still way too fast when we got to the vet. she observed him (with me never letting him go) for about an hour and a half and by the time we left he was standing on his own again. his heart still fast but nothing like before.
she told us she suspects hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and that she thought he would be fine to take home tonight since he was so much better but to go to our vet as soon as we could for tests.
as i write Tony is resting quietly on his blanket. i ask you to please continue to pray for him. i will update his diary tomorrow. again thank you for all the prayers. i know with my whole heart that is the only reason he didn't go to the bridge tonight. Jesus answers prayers and i love you all for being such wonderfur furiends to us! love bobbie Tony's mom

Since Dad had to work today we all thought we'd just hang out and have a quiet day. Well were we in for a surprise. We had company for lunch and they weren't even invited.
We were laying in the sun by the glass doors and mom came over to talk to us when she saw three young raccoons eating out of our bird feeders. They were really cute and mom got some good pictures because they hung around (literally) for a good half an hour. They gobbled up every bit of our bird seed too.
Those awful noisy fireworks have already started so i'm going to go hide under the bed with the rest of my furmates. bye for now

Summer is officially here. Muppet the exclusive Interior Decorator came over last night and wallpapered my room. Now it feels like i am living at the beach! She painted a banner that makes me feel like jumping into the picture for a swim. Now my room is all set for some summer fun!
You should have seen her slinging that wallpaper glue and painting up a storm so it would be ready for today. I tell you that little girl can remake a room and you think you have moved a thousand miles. Thank you lil' one. We all think my room is just terrific and all my brofurs and sisfurs want to hang out in here. (chuckles)
Mom says now all i need is a hammock and she will come hang out too. So i am off to order one over the net.
Have a blessed Sunday everyfur, have fun and be safe. luv to all Tony

Amazing ~ absolutely amazing!! I am overwhelmed by all my Catster friends who have come by to visit and leave gifts.
Mom is really trying to send out thank yous for me but our internet isn't cooperating very well. As some of you know we have dialup which means 'slow down'. Where we live cable isn't available so we have learned to be patient. I just don't want anyone to feel we don't truly appreciate all the sweet Concats and gifts they have sent. We will eventually send a personal pawmail thank you to each and every one of you.
Until then a big 'group hug' and a huge group thank you to all those who came by to visit:
Eddy, Tutti, Norman, Sky, Chandler Ray, Greta Grace, Buddie, Riley, Tessa, Jillian Grace, Lily, Sir Sonny Bono, Presley, Paris, Wally, Alfie, Peter J, Teddy Bearz, Karma Kitty, Bobbi Boi, Punkin Pooh, Charlie Clarence, Precious Muppet, Alex, Callie Rose, Hazel Lucy, Lily, Sweet Pea, Alfie, Mercy, Hooch, Kaci, Riley, Toby, Wally, Chai Latte, Lilly, Arnold P, Stogie, Macaroni, and all their family members!
and please if by chance i have forgotten anyone forgive me! I do love you all and am really honored to be your friend.
we even have made new friends ~
Samoa, Calvin, Violet, Gleek, Spunky , Sugar and Newman
Tutti - LAF, Junior Fluffkins, Tethys Fluffkins, Jake, Samantha and Adoptable Priyanka
Macaroni, the Curious and Francis A Sinatracat
Zack, Harry~, Riley~, Jack~, Enzo~, Hannah~, Stinky~, Sophie~, Xerox~, Angus MacFangus~, Annabelle~, Cary~, Kate~, Queso~, Copy~, Sissy~, Wally~, Lily~, Ivy~, Charlie~, Matilda~, Bubba~, Pete~, Emme~, Violet~, Claire~, Kira~, DC~, Lucy~, Griffin~, The Texas Wild Bunch~, Larke~Pink Princess!, Dalton~, TWB Birthday Page and Fisher~

You just won't believe it!! The phone rang ~ and momcat started squealing "My Tony Are you sure it's Tony!" Oh my gosh, mom i promise i didn't do anything. I've been good all day. I even gave Anna my favorite seat in the front window.
She was talking to Sir Sonny Bono's mom on the phone (Sonny's mom was squealing too) and then she grabs me up and squeals again "You're Cat of the Week Tony!" What? me? Cat of the Week? Are you kidding me mom? But she wasn't - and I am - Wowzers! Thank you so much Catster.
We love Catster here at our house. Dad says we are addicted and he is probably right. But he loves seeing our pictures and hearing about our friends adventures. We have made so many wonderful friends from all over the world on Catster. We have laughed and cried with them. They have shared their stories with us and we have shared ours with them. We have and continue to pray for those who are ill and for the Dadcats and Momcats who have furbabies at the Bridge with our Cleo.
To be honored this way is so overwhelming and we thank you from the bottom (and the top) of our furry hearts. We love every one of you Catsters! purrs and luv to all Tony
