Everything happened so fast. Momma can't write much right now. For now, let me just say that my beloved Felix suddenly became very ill. Within a few days it was obvious he couldn't get better.
He passed away quietly with the assistance of our kind vet. I will always love him so. My beautiful tuxedo, my best friend for 17 years.
My heart has a huge hole in it right now. I can't stop crying.

It's been a long while since I've updated my diary. I've been so busy with all the new kitties here and everything.
Today is my 14th birthday. Momma adopted me when I was only 1 year old. She cannot believe how quickly the time has gone by.
Tonight, I am having my favorite dinner (duck and green pea, canned, mmmmm). I had lots of extra chicken treats today, and got some new fluffies to bury my face in and play with.
Momma says I am doing well, you'd never guess my age. A little more white around my muzzle, just a wee bit thinner than at my peak, but I still romp and play like the dickens.
Last summer, I started acting a little strange (well, stranger than usual). I was yelling in the middle of the night, very busy with all the toys. I began to eat like I was starving to death, yet did not put on weight. In fact, I started to lose a little weight. So off to the vet we went.
Turns out I am/was in the beginning stages of hyperthyroid. My vet put me on some thyroid medicine twice a day, and it really has helped me a lot! I am not hyperactive now, I eat like a normal boy, and my weight is stable. Why, I just feel better all the way around, I guess. I am even playing with toys when the other boys do again.
The vet says since we caught on to this hyperthyroid thing early, my prognosis is real good. Momma hopes so, and wishes to have many more sweet years with me.
Love to you all, and my purry best wishes to all my friends.

Hi everybody. It's been a while since I last updated my diary. I've pretty much just been hanging around, but today was a little bit special.
As you may know, my brother and dearest friend Lars crossed the Bridge last summer. Even though there are other kitty boys here in the house, I've not really gotten as close with any of them. I guess I sorta took to our little Buster the most in the meantime, I mean, I am his beloved uncle and all. We have started playing and wrestling a little, but I don't like it as much. I will groom him, that is my primary job around here, keeping the baby clean!
But ever since Tommy moved in a few years ago, I pretty much kept to myself, except for Lars. Why, Lars and I were almost like littermates, the way we behaved. I even waited with him, comforting him when he crossed.
Ever since, I have been alone.
I don't like any kitty to fuss on me, don't really like to play, and most certainly did not want anybody to lay down with me and cuddle.
Then Chumley moved in last January. I actually began to relax a little bit, and play again. I have a renewed interest in toys (by the way, I sure do like that darn DaBird thing). I started hunting our catnip toys at night and Ricky Rodent and all. I started hanging out with the fur family more. But I still did not want to cuddle.
Well, I gave Momma quite a shock this morning! Many, many times before, when I was relaxing in the red bed Chumley would climb in there with me, but I always just left immediately. No snuggling for me. Not without Lars, anyway. But this morning, Chumley was all curled up in there, taking a nap after our breakfast. Wonder of wonders, I climbed right in beside him AND CUDDLED UP with him for a nice long snooze.
Momma is so happy. She knows that Lars sent Chumley from the Bridge to be with us. She is happy to see I have a friend to snuggle with, again. And I am happy, too!
Well, I gotta go. We're all trying to get ready for Buster's birthday soon. He will be 2 years old on the 28th. I must think of something special to do for him on his extra special day!
Purrs to you all,
