I finally talked Mom into writing another entry in my diary...whew! What a job! Actually I can't blame her. It's been crazy here, as usual, with baby-sitting, our 91 yr. old Nana not feeling so good and Dad winding up in the hospital AGAIN 2 days after Christmas.
We are sitting under a pile of stuff that makes us think we're starting to look like Hoarders. I enjoy the "ins and outs" of that, but Mom says we have to clean it up eventually. We're lucky we have a really good Special Olympics Donation Box not too far away, and I am proud of Mom for taking the stuff there instead of just throwing it away. There are so many people in need now. I know the Zoo Gang is lucky that we always have food in our bowl. Some friends don't.
Anyway, evfurbuddie here got that nasty flu virus that's going around (and around) Mom had to leave a Christmas party early because she was coming down with it. 2 weeks later, she still had it and then Daddy got it. Our human sisfur and the hoomin kittens all got it and her husband and our Nana got it for New Year's. The Hoomin Kitten's other grandma is on her THIRD round of it! We actually thought Daddy had it, too, but everyone sorta got better and he didn't. The Hoomin Vet put Daddy in the hospital and we guess they decided he had some sort of nasty things in his blood. He stayed there for a couple of days and we got lots of snuggle time with Mom. Now he's home and we are back on the yukky "low sodium" food. Mom put a tiny bit on the table for me the other night. I sniffed it and gave her a dirty look. Yuk.
We did have a pretty nice Christmas, though. Our hoomin brufur came up from North Carolina with his wife and Mom was a lot happier than last year when he stayed home. We got some new chitter mice for Christmas but Delilah the Divine Diva is hogging them all. I found a ping-pong ball in the back of the sofa, so I just play with that. We got some Willow Wormies from our friend Morgan whose Swabie makes Morgan's Beds and Lizzie LOVES those. She also got a new bed because "somebuddie" keeps taking her's. I don't mind sleeping in a bed with pink roses on it. It's comfy!! Morgan's Swabie does a grrreat job!
So that's about all that's happening here, furenz. Nothing too exciting, as usual for winter in Cleveland, Ohio. At this time of year we just put one paw in front of the other and try to make it to May!
Sending much love and some peace to you, too!

A hoomin kitten? What kind of animal is that? Stay warm!
I wish we could send some of our heat over to you.
Hi, Monster! We have had hoomin kittens in our family for 5 years. The first one took some getting used to. I always thought my big, poufy tail was one of my better assets until the HK noticed it. Then I got to wishing I was a Manx!
And Sam, you are a very sweet kitty!
Purrs and hugs,
