My Diary

Goodbye

As you all know, I was having some constipation problems, which my Mom thought we had fixed. Well, I did feel better for a bit, but then I started having problems again. It was really hurting me to poop! My Mom and Dad took me to the vet, and the vet said he thought I had a perianal fistula. He told Mom and Dad that a surgeon would be able to fix me right up, so they made an appointment for me.

Well, I had that appointment yesterday, and it wasn't very good at all. The surgeon saw my butt and said he didn't think it was a fistula--he thought it might be a tumor. He admitted me so they could do more tests and x-rays later in the day. I had to wait forever for them to get to me, but I understood because there were a lot of young cats who needed help and wouldn't be able to go without food as long as I can. Unfortunately, the surgeon discovered that the thing on my butt is part of a large, cancerous tumor that is blocking 90% of my rectum--that's why it hurts me so much to poop! Anyway, Mom and Dad are coming in to talk with the surgeon, but it looks like the best choice might be to, well, you know. I'm not really sure I want to sleep forever, but it does sound a lot more comfortable that I have been for the last few weeks. I'm really going to miss my Mom and Dad and Arthur, and I know they will miss me lots too.

So I just wanted to stop by and say "goodbye" to everyone. Take care of yourselves and all your kitties!

 

Constipation is no fun

Mom and Dad noticed I've been leaving little pieces of poop around the house the last several days. At first they just thought maybe Arthur and I were batting around pieces of poop that we scooped out of the litterbox, but Mom finally realized that I was constipated. I tried really really hard to be a good boy and use the litterbox, but nothing would come out and it really hurt! so i would lick and lick my butt and eventually I would pull out some stuff. I just left it there because I didn't know what else to do with it. I tried to bury it, but the carpet wouldn't cover it.

Anyway, mom called the vet and he told her to give me some yucky mineral oil and then some milk of magnesia. At first I was excited about the milk, but then I realized it really wasn't the sort of milk I wanted. I don't know what kind of animal a magnesia is, but I don't know how they can live on that milk! But the good news is--it worked!

 

I went to the vet

Mom and Dad took me to the vet on Saturday. I was having a nice nap in a sunny patch on their bed and Mom came in and picked me up. I thought she was just going to give me a nice cuddle, but she put me in that awful carrier and brought me to the car! I told her that was a mean trick and I didn't appreciate it one bit.

The vet part was OK I guess. Mom said I did really well--I even lost 1.5 pounds. Now I have a little less than a pound left to lose and I won't be fat anymore.

 

Mom finally caught me

I've been secretly eating dirt from Mom's plants for a while now. Mom figured it was Arthur because he used to like to nibble on the leaves (at least until she started spraying the plants with that icky-tasting stuff), but she caught me eating dirt a few nights ago. She was not happy and she tapped me on my head with her finger. Oh the shame!

 

They're finally home!

Mom and Dad came home a couple of days ago and Arthur and I are sooooo happy about that. Arthur left them a mouse on the rug. I tried to tell him that was a dumb idea because humans don't eat mice, but he did it anyway.

I've been catching up on my cuddle time with Mom. Every time she sits on the couch or on her comfy chair, I come right over to sit on her or right next to her. I've even been letting her sleep in a little later in the morning--this morning I didn't wake her up until 5:30!

Mom and Dad are going away. Arthur told me about the big box Mom was putting stuff in a few days ago. Tonight Dad was putting more stuff in it, then Mom closed it and Dad brought it downstairs. I don't like it when Mom and Dad go away.

But Mom did give me a nice yummy treat tonight. She said it was a "pumpkin donut". I don't care what it's called, it was delicious! I wish Mom would give me some rice pudding with pumpkin donut in it!

 

Cuddle Time

The past couple of nights I've had a very nice cuddle with Mom before bed. I'm a pretty big guy so it's pretty hard for me to get comfortable on a human lap, but every once in a while I get in the mood for a nice cuddle. My mom has a comfy chair she sits in (sometimes it takes me forever to get her to do that) and she puts a nice soft blanky on her lap. Then I jump on the couch and walk across the end table to climb onto the chair and then onto her lap. (I don't like to just right up on the chair because I don't see quite as well as I used to so sometimes I miss.)

Once I get on her lap, I knead the nice soft blanky and purr as loud as I can (which is really loud!). Mom rubs my head and scritches me under the collar, which just makes me purr even more. Then I like to flop on my side and show her my nice fluffy white belly. I don't like belly rubs, but I do like to show off my belly fur--it's not easy to keep it so white and fluffy! Mom rubs my back and shoulders for me--I just love it when she does that. Eventually I get sooooo comfy and relaxed that I fall asleep. Sometimes I snore--Mom says it's cute when I do that, but I just think it's embarrassing. Snoring is not dignified at all!

 

More Yumminess!

Last night mom went grocery shopping (like she does every week). This week she brought home something she called "rice pudding". Arthur and I had never heard of it, but we were bugging her for a taste anyway. She gave us each a little bit in our food bowls and it was delicious! I ate mine right up and tried to share some of Arthur's, but he wouldn't let me. Mom and Dad were eating theirs, so I went right over to Mom, got in to her lap, and tried to stick my head in her bowl to share but she wouldn't share either. I hope she gives me some more rice pudding soon!!

 

Yummy!

A while ago, Mom stopped giving us the nice pouch food she used to give us every morning. She said it might not be safe for us to eat, so she switched to some canned food. Arthur and I thought that was very tasty, but Mom hated rinsing out the cans afterward. Well, she found a new type of pouch food to give us, and it is delicious! Mom says it has turkey and duck in it. Arthur and I had never had duck before, but it turns out we really like it. Mom says I even snort while I'm eating it!

 

Mommy's new rug

Mom got a new rug for the front hall. Arthur and I really like it! Mom says it's made of something called "wool". It feels really good on my paws and it has an interesting smell.
