Quick Bio:
-mixed breed

June 29th 1995


Sleeping, baths, attacking Paulie (bobble head dog) playing slip-n-slide with rugs or plastic bags, sunbathing, visiting Dr. Beth, going on walks (with my harness and leash of course!) and car rides

Dogs, Being woken up before I'm ready and when someone flicks my ear! Oh, and when Savanah comes to my house and uses MY litter box. She's a stinky butt!

Favorite Toy:
I ♥LOVE♥ my scratching post, feather bungee, sisal balls, and my new Boogie Mat...*good times* (If I play too much, I get hiccups so my mommy has to rub my back to make them stop. Who knew cats could get hiccups?)

Favorite Nap Spot:
Mommy's bed, on my window perch, in my wicker/fleece bed or tent. I snore very loudly (almost like a human) so you won't have trouble finding me. I purr loudly in my sleep too! When you add the snoring & purring together, I sound like a running motor.

Favorite Food:
Merrick's Cowboy Cookout and California Roll Formulas and Pit'r Pat Mints

I can understand Japanese, speak a few human words, come on command and sleep for DAYS! I'm also th current wrestling and slip-n-slide champion.


Arrival Story:
My feline mom was a Blue-Cream Himalayan named "Missy" and my dad was a Black Smoked Persian named "Rajah" (he passed away in 2002). I was given to my human mommy by a close family friend (my dad's human mommy). Out of the litter, there were 4 of us (2 Grey, 1 Cream, and 1 Black). I was the only boy kitten, the runt of the litter and no one wanted me! Can you imagine that?! Anywhoo, my mommy instantly fell in love with me. I became the king of the house and the pride and joy of my family. People say I'm way to spoiled. Hmm, it's not my fault my mommy ♥♥ loves ♥♥ me immensly!*purrs*

Sebastian, Kionu and I live with our mommy, but we visit my grandma a lot. Like, every day. LOL. Anyhoo, I was the first cat my mommy had and my middle name is "Kawika" (pronouced KA-VEE-KA) which means "beloved one" in Hawaiian. How cool?! Back in the day, I was the perfect little cat. Just a grey fluff ball running around the house, minding my own business. Then Sebastian was born and while I was dreaming away in kitty land, he poked me in the eye! What the bleep?! He was a little insane in the membrane. After my eye trauma, my mommy had to put medicated eye drops in my left eye 5 times a day for 6 months. I recovered, only to bite my paw a year and a half later. I bit it so hard I almost amputated it. Dr. Beth didn't believe my mom when she said I bit my own paw. She thought I got into another cat fight. I don't know what happend, I think I was just stressed out. At least that's what I keep telling myself. I learned my lesson and now I'm back to my loyal, loving self (minus my acrobatic skills).

For all of Miko's Catster pals, Miko is no longer with us. He started getting lethargic last night and started to foam at the mouth. His appetite was almost non-exsistant, and he had difficulty walking due to his arthritis. We had tried several medications and treatments to help ease his arthritis pains, but he did not respond well to anything. Results from the blood test this morning confirmed his kidney's were also failing. We did not want him to suffer anymore and had no choice but to put him down. Miko was our very first cat (we got him at 2 mo. old) and he will always remain in our hearts and memories. May he rest in peace...


I'm alive!!

Hello Everyone,

Sorry I haven't done an entry in a few months. I am still recovering from my near death experience. About 3 weeks ago, I was rushed to the emergency vet hospital and went through 4 days of tests, x-rays, ultrasounds and medication. Turns out my urinary tract was blocked. I had a surgery (urethal reconstruction) on Thursday afternoon and did well throughout the night. However, in the early morning hours, I took a turn for the worse and had to go through another surgery (to reduce the inflamation in my bladder) on Friday. It seems I did well for several hours after the inital surgery, but I always managed to take a turn for the worse again. This time, it was determined that I had stones that were in my system for so long, they were practically embedded in my body. I had another emergency surgery Saturday morning. I did well for that day, then my temperature dropped. I was placed into an incubator for 36 hours. I'm not sure why I got blocked again, but I did. I had my 4th surgery on Monday afternoon to drain the urine that had leaked from my bladder being so weak. I guess I made it difficult and took the long route. However, I remained stable for the next few days and was allowed to go home for an overnight visit. I had yet to develop my normal appetite so I was told to come back for tube feedings so I could my daily does of medications. A few more days passed and I was given the OK to go home.

I've been home for about a week now and things are going well. In fact, I just had my stiches taken out on Friday and Mom had the vet staff give me a "lion cut". Boy, that made me really mad! I can't get over it! I feel so...naked! Thanks for sticking around to read my long entry! Take care and be healthy!

Damn, it was HOT today!

So today was the start of Hurricane season for Hawaii. It lasts from June - November and I don't think I can handle it! When I wake up in the morning, I'm usually greeted by a ray of sunshine and a slight ocean breeze. Clearly, that wasn't the case today. I woke up to a down pour of rain! I thought, "Oh great, there goes my walk for the day!". Just when I thought all hope was lost, I saw the sun peaking out behind the clouds. I thought to myself, "Sweet mother of catnip, there's sun!" but wait, where's the breeze that follows it? It's nowhere to be found. It's gone, lost in the oblivion! I ran to mommy and begged her to put the AC on. She scolded me and told me it was too early and I'd end up getting cold. I'm not one to talk back, so I took my handsome self and walked over to the hallway. Plopped myself down on the cold icy tile floor. Ohh...it felt heavenly. I drifted off into catnip land and when I woke up mommy was gone! She had left for work and forgot to turn on the AC. What?! How could she do this to me? I knew I would be melting all day. So while mommy was at work, I went from one corner of the house to the other and slept in the darkest spot I could find. I barely got any sleep because it was so darn hot! The sun kept stalking me and the humidity was killing me! AHH!

Mommy finally came home and boy did I give her an earful! She apologized profusely and gave me ahi treats. I let her slide this time with a warning. *sigh* I must go now, the AC is calling my name...literally.

Peace out!
Miko Kawika
