Woohoo!!! A DDP today!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you Catster for the honor today!!! What a total and pleasant surprise! Mom has had me on her mind a lot lately...she keeps calling Frisky, Kiwi. I used to hang out with mom in her bedroom and keep her company. Lately Frisky has been doing that which is out of character for him and Frisky looks a lot like me, so it's understandable that she'd call him Kiwi. She misses me so much. So mom is thankful for my nomination today cuz it's another reason to look at my cute face in my pictures here on Catster and see me on the DDP page as well! Thank you again for the nomination! It really is an honor!

One Year Bridge Anniversary

One year already. Where does the time go? So hard to believe it's been a year already, I can't wrap my mind around that fact! I miss you! I miss your meow. I miss you taking care of and bathing the others. You never complained. All you wanted was to be loved. I do not regret a single moment for bringing you inside...I just wish I had done it sooner. Cookie getting killed was my deciding factor. I hope you're back together again with Cookie and that we all will be together again some day. I miss you Kiwi and think of you so often. You know you are loved and missed so much and your home is and will always be here with me. Until we meet again...I love you sweet Kiwi!

 

Kiwi Got His Wings

Kiwi just crossed the bridge at noon when he took his last breath while I was holding him.

I found him 3 hours ago laid out in his litter box. He was dying. All I could do was hold him until he took his last breath. He was fine at 5:30 this morning when I checked on him. It happened so quick. I'm just glad he waited to cross until I could hold him and tell him it was ok. He's not hurting anymore. I know the cancer took it's toll on him. He never complained. Up until yesterday morning he walked and jumped up on things but the cancer in his leg made it a little difficult but he didn't let it slow him down. Yesterday morning I put him in a kennel to keep him from getting hurt trying to jump up and down on the cat tree or on top of the kennel. He never let on that today would be his last day alive.

Kiwi knows he's loved and that his home is here with me. He's been a part of my life for over 6 years and a part of the indoor family for over 5 years. He was the keeper of the kitties...he bathed any kitty that was near him. I always asked him who is keeper was. He'd bathe the rest but rarely did they bathe him. He was a lover, not a fighter. He was my baby and I will always keep him in my heart. He was way too young to die and he's the only baby I've had so far that has had cancer. He was not the one that deserved that horrible fate.

He is now flying free and no longer in pain. Him and Cookie are together again. Why does God take the ones I love the most??? My heart is broken but I have closure knowing he's no longer in pain and that I was there holding him, loving on him and talking to him right up to his last breath. I love you Kiwi with all of my heart and soul. I will never forget you and you will forever hold a place in my heart and in my thoughts. Until we meet again young man. I hope you and the rest will wait for me at the bridge until it's my turn to cross that bridge and be reunited with all of my babies that have crossed. Rest in peace sweet Kiwi. I love you Kiwi boy!!!

 

Possibly has cancer

Over the last year, Kiwi has been losing weight. He's a big boy and to lose so much weight is frightening. I think I just figured out why. Kiwi was standing on the bed about 30 minutes ago and I realized his back left leg is trembling a little. I put my hand on his leg and his back leg is the size of a small ball. His whole leg is round. I felt his right back leg and it's nothing like it. I'm afraid Kiwi has cancer which would explain the weight loss. He's not crying out in pain, he's still eating, going potty and moving around. It's a holiday weekend right now and everything is closed, including tomorrow, Memorial Day. I will be keeping a close eye on Kiwi but I'm afraid I will have to make that final decision for him when things deteriorate. Kiwi is only 7 years old and I'm not ready for him to die. I've also never had to make a decision to end an animal's life. Kiwi has always been a joy and I can't imagine my life without him in it. He's the keeper of the kitties...he always takes care and bathes the others. Who's Kiwi's keeper?

I know if I didn't take Kiwi in 6 years ago, he wouldn't be around today. Kiwi found himself a home and a human to love him which is all he ever wanted. I just wish our time together would have been another 10-15 years but it looks like that time might be drastically cut short. He knows he's loved and whenever he does make that journey across the bridge, he will take that love with him and hold onto it until we are reunited. I love you Kiwi, no matter what!

 

I'm Not A Happy Kitty!!!

Now I know what mommy meant by me "getting fixed"! I'm not a happy kitty. Sore too!!! I cry alot when I move. I tried to jump up on the tub and didn't quite make it. I think I busted a nut or something...oh,no wait...I don't have those anymore. MOL! Seriously though, I think I strained a stitch or something. I thought mom winced more than I did when she watched me try to jump.

Between being starved to death and then taking my manhood away, you'd think I did something bad to deserve that. Mom's not exactly on my good side right now but she keeps checking on me to make sure I'm okay. I'm resting comfortably in mom's bedroom and all the other instigators are out and about in the rest of the house. Mom doesn't want me moving around. I'm supposed to rest up and tend to my wound. She tells me I'll be feeling better in a few days or so. I guess I'll find out soon enough.

 

Getting Fixed???

I'm not sure what that means, but that's what mommy says I'm getting tomorrow. Is that something good?

I guess I've been marking my territory in the house since I've come inside. Isn't that what we're supposed to do? That's what I did when I was outside and nothing was ever said. So why now?

To make matters worse for mommy, I've been fighting with Hemi ALOT. The kind of knock-down, drag out fights that wake mom out of a deep sleep. There's lots of growling, crying, yelling and all the fur flying (literally). It's amazing Hemi has any fur left! Mom got seriously injured the other morning trying to break us up. Mom's blood was everywhere which made her yell even more. Of course then she had to clean out her wounds (some of mom's fingers are still numb and it's been almost a week), clean up the blood everywhere and clean up all of Hemi's fur all over the place before she went to work. The blood didn't come out of her shirt either...oops! Mom really considered kicking us both back outside, permanently! She was MAD!!! Mom was sure we were going to kill eachother or seriously mame eachother. She's never seen a cat fight like that. It was bad! I have some serious scars on my head now. Can't really tell how Hemi is due to all his hair! So, we've been separated lately... I've been in the bedroom and Hemi's out and about in the rest of the house.

But anyway, mom came home from work today and shoved me in a carrier. Of course I didn't like it at first, but then I settled right down. I didn't make a peep on the car ride to the vet. I was a very good boy! I weighed in at 11.8 pounds. Then I got shoved into a cage and didn't get any food! What's up with that??? I'm going to starve! Starve, I tell ya!

Mom says she'll pick me up after work tomorrow. So, do you think I'm going to like "getting fixed"? I guess I'll just have to wait until tomorrow to find out.

 

Diary of the Day!!!

That's me! I'm on the homepage! Woohoo!!! What a surprise! Thank you Catster for selecting me as the Diary of the Day kitty today! I am very honored to be selected!!!

Had a good day inside. I've only been inside for about 5 days now. Been going pretty good too. Mom's not quite sure where I'm hiding right now but it really doesn't matter cuz all the hiding spots are warm and dry. Plus I have all the food and water a kitty could ever want. I really did get myself the purrfect home.

Thank you every kitty for sharing in my happiness for being selected as the DDP today by giving me all kinds of rosettes, special gifts, kind words and friendship requests. I will make sure I properly thank every kitty although it may take a day or two.

Also wanted to thank every kitty for the concats on finding a furrever home and all the thoughtful words for losing my beloved Cookie, the love of my life. It will be 3 weeks tomorrow that Cookie was killed. Mom still cries at the memory of finding Cookie's body in the middle of the street. She will never ever forget that image. Cookie was such a sweetheart and we will always miss her.

Thank you again for everything! You all have made this such a purrfect day for me! Thank you Catster! It really is an honor!!!

 

Enjoying life indoors now!

Friday morning mom's nerves were tied in knots because she didn't know what to do about me. Should she bring me home or should she run the risk of losing me. If she brought me in, how would I do? Would I use the litterbox, would I fit in? Would I be aggressive? Would the others accept me?

Well, she worried for nothing (for the most part). I'm not aggressive, I use the litterbox, when some of the boys want to fight I back down and run away. I'm not afraid of the others but I know the ones I need to stay away from and try to do so. I act like I've always been here. Mom is completely amazed with me and even more so with how the others are reacting or not reacting to me.

Last night when mom layed down to go to sleep. I jumped up on the bed and layed on mom's stomach with my head on her chest. A little while later I left and sat in the window and kept my eye on things while she slept. When she got up in the middle of the night, upon returning to bed I layed by her side for a little while again. I am such a good kitty, aren't I?

I really am grateful to be inside now. I've been outside for at least 1.5 years and now it's time to live the good life! I am such a lucky kitty! I love you mom! Thanks for giving me a furrever home!!!

 

Inside At Last!!!

It's a shame that it took Cookie dying for mom to realize how much Cookie and I meant to her. She always said that she should bring us in but she never did. Mom has way too many cats inside and just didn't think that it would be fair all the way around to bring in anymore. So, Cookie and I along with some of the others stayed outside.

Mom knew that Cookie and I must have had homes before because we are way too tame to be ferals like the others. We jump in mom's truck everyday to be fed and to be loved on for about a half an hour. Of course with Cookie's death, it's just me in the truck now. I am so loveable and love to be loved on. Some days I just don't want to leave but mom has to leave and I have to go back outside.

Mom's been worried about me wandering away like some of the others did. Without Cookie, I'm lonely. I try to get near some of the others and I get beat up and run off. So far, I've come back when mom comes to feed us. So mom made the decision that when she came to feed us yesterday, if I showed up, I'd be going home with her. That's exactly what happened.

Mom took me home. I only cried a few times in the truck and that's because mom stopped petting me. I layed in her lap the whole ride home. Then mom kept me in her bedroom from yesterday until this morning. I got to sleep with her. I love to be loved on. I cry a little when I'm scared but I think I'm going to like it here. Right now, I'm out in the living room with the rest of the furbutts. I know where all the food dishes are, the water bowls are and I've used several of the litterboxes. I'm inside at last. Mom thinks that's all I've ever wanted.
