I just wrote in my blog yesterday and then today we got an email that the Catster community which includes this blog is being shut down! The same thing happened 2 years ago but then someone company came and rescued us. But now they said it's too hard to fix the community pages and that it's all broken (even though it looks fine to me) and now my blog will go away!
I have been writing in my blog since 2004. It's filled with lots of funny stories about my life. Fortunately, mommy can download a copy of the webpage, so that we still have the blog but it's sad that it won't be on the internet anymore to share to others.
I want to say thanks to everyone who ever read my blog. I even got Diary of the Day a couple of times. I haven't really sent gifts to my Catster friends or kept in touch but thanks everyone for being my friend.

My mommy loves The Sound of Music, and she's been waiting to be able to write that title.
Meows everyone! Yes, I am 16, can you believe it? That's like 80 something in human years. I am a distinguished gentleman now.
The latest news is that mommy was away for a whole week and it felt like forever! I don't like it when she's away. I hid under the bed a lot. I love daddy but it's not the same. But one night I heard her voice through daddy's headset! How does she get in there? So confusing!But then she came back suddenly and I was so surprised to see her. I didn't come over to her right away, I thought she was a mirage. But it was really her! Meows! So all is well again and we have been cuddling.
Mommy said that she doesn't like being away from me either, especially now that I am so old and she's worried that something will happen when she is away and that she won't get to say goodbye, like with her doggy. But the vet said that I look good for being an "older cat". I guess I had some older cat problems a couple of months ago and had to have a little medicine but all is well again.
Anyway I just wanted to say hi to all my readers out there and I'll try to write again soon. It's just that my life is so boring and normal now.

Well things have been going pretty well here in the past few months. I turned 15 years old which is 76 in human years and now it's time for my anniversary!
It's been really nice because Mommy had been home a lot, since July. She explained that she was between jobs and just waiting for her new job to start. She had also decided that she needed to get a lot of stuff done and made a lot of appointments, including one for me!
About 2 months ago, Daddy found a little tiny bump on my paw. Mommy looked it up and consulted an online vet and they said to keep an eye on it and if it got bigger to take me to the vet. So fast forward to the week before Mommy went back to work and she noticed that it was a bit bigger and looked like a pink cauliflower bump. So she called the vet and they were like, oh we'll take a look.
Next thing I know, I got put in my travel bag and off we went!
The vet looked at it and said that it looked harmless but would be better to take it out now rather than to wait for it to get even bigger. Mommy asked if they would run any tests on it and the vet said, well, at this point, it's not like we would give him chemo for it or anything! But I guess she was right, since I am just an old man now! This is also Denmark and they seem to be a lot more practical.
The vet said that they could do the surgery the next day. So we went home. Apparently she also said that I was not allowed to eat after 10pm. Mommy told me to eat but I wasn't hungry.She went out that night and I ate a little but threw up. When she got home I didn't want to eat, until 10:22. I went to my food bowl but....it was GONE! I was shocked! How could that happen!!! I looked at mommy and all I heard was "blah blah blah vet said blah blah blah". Not happy. I meowed and meowed but got no food. I had to hunt my toy mouse and pretend to eat it at 5am.
So at 8am, I was back in the bag and shipped off for the whole day to the vet! Mommy asked if they would run any blood tests before giving me anethesia and the vet said no, that I was healthy and that it would cost a lot and there was no reason to do it. She said not to worry and that they would take good care of me. Practical.
I had to go into a cage and there were other animals there. Even dogs!!!
Next thing I know, the guy vet was there and poof I fell asleep. I woke up in my cage, very groggy and confused. I heard a lot of barking and I didn't like that at all. So I reached into the dark recesses of my soul and became a dark Sith lord again. I have always been a Sith lord, I just don't show it much, but my former step-brothers know all about that.
Then I saw Mommy and she was talking to the guy. I was in the cage in my bag with just my head hanging out sideways. I couldn't move! I felt like Westley in the Princess Bride after he had been mostly dead all day. Then they came over to touch me and I started hissing and growling. No way was anyone going to mess with me. Didn't they know not to mess with Darth Bandit!? GRRRRRRRR HISSSSSS.
The vet said for mommy to leave the room so that she could be the good one. 5 minutes later, after trying to claw him with my good paw, he got me back into my bag. I continued to growl. I heard barking and when I got into the reception area, a dog walked by. I kept up the growling. Boy was I mad!
We took a taxi home and I growled at the driver. We got home and then mommy let me out of the bag. I was so hungry!! I wanted to run to the food bowl but I couldn't walk straight. My legs went all over the place and I was walking crooked. I finally got to my food bowl and plopped down in front of it. My legs gave out and I was just flat on the floor with my face in the bowl and started to lick my food. Mommy said it took me a long time to eat, because I would keep staring into space.
I was so embarrassed because I couldn't jump at all when I got home, even easy jumps and I wanted to be on the bed. I had to have help like the old man that I am. It took a few hours before I could walk right and jump again. And I visited my food bowl several times and each time I could lift myself up a little more and eat with more dignity.
The nice guy vet had said that my little lump was harmless and something that cats get. He said it was a good operation, they got it all out and so I had 3 stitches. I still have them, but they are supposed to fall out.
A few days after all that, Mommmy started to go to work again. She also goes some place with that stupid loud violin now. I wish she would just stay at home.
Mommy had planned to make it all up to me by getting me Fancy Feast Chicken Hearts and Liver for my anniversary. She tried to order it since they don't sell it here. But the shop said that they can't sent it to Denmark because it is meat and customs won't allow it! Sadness!
Anyway, I am really happy about our anniversary. Even though I complain about all the stuff Mommy has done for the past 15 years, especially all the moving and vet trips, she's still the best. And now we have Daddy too and he's a pretty cool guy. Even though he vacuums and moves stuff around in the apartment...Meow meow!
