Black and White
to be brushed, and to sit on a lap
nails clipped, another kitty napping in her bed or eating out of her bowl,and that Sam and Chico can go outside whenever but she has to be supervised (they don't leave the yard and she will )
straws, pens and pencils - go figure - and like most kitties..... the hand monster underneath the blanket game
Favorite Nap Spot:
on counter in master bedroom bathroom
Natural Balance dry and Solid Gold Tuna in a can
I offered to foster Nakita, her brother and three other kittens when they were tiny kittens, they were being kept in a cattery with adult cats at a cat rescue. I went there to take pictures for their Web Page and discovered the kittens. This is NO place for kittens as they have not developed their full immune system yet and by the time the rescue dropped the kittens off to me to foster, Nakita was almost dead. She was a skeleton with fur, her and her brother, Junior, did not know how to eat on their own and they didn't notice. Junior quickly got the jist of how to eat but not Nakita, I had to force feed her from 5 weeks old until she was 4 1/2 months old!! Bless the people who came up with the product Nutri-Cal! :) The kittens naturally had to deal with ringworm, upper respiratory, diarrhea, etc. and had been exposed to a lot of stuff out at that cattery. Many sleepless nights and vet visits with Nakita followed as she had zero interest in food and she became quite clever and could spit out most of what I syringed in her mouth. Then an odd miracle happened! When Nakita was just 4 1/2 months old, she went into her first heat and began eating on her own. She rapidly improved and now she is full grown and healthy. Her vet, who's been there from the beginning with her, just loves it when Nakita comes in for a check-up. The other kittens all got adopted into good homes, but I could not part from my Nakita. She will be three years old this November.(2007) She's my love.
In May of 2009 Nakita was diagnosed as having a degenerative eye disease. We always knew that she couldn't see perfect, but now she only seems to be able to see out of her peripheral vision. She was so emaciated as a baby, that it's thought that this is what caused her now to be going blind. I have her on a few supplements to try and slow down the progression. She still courageously holds the reining spot in our home as the 'Queen of her palace'. ****If you ever have a kitten who's not eating proper and that you have to force feed, please add the supplement Taurine. I wish that I would have known that and added that to Nakita's diet when she was a kitten. No vet ever told me about this important and vital supplement.**** **********************************

My beautiful friend Anna made me a pretty picture to hang in my room! *purrs of thanks* I was so excited I asked mom if she could help me hang it on my wall. We picked out the perfect spot, but some fleas decided to be tricksters. They are telling me that I have reached my limit of 10 pictures and I should throw away one of my other pics to make room for my new one!! Limit?? I have a big limit, and mom pays for that! I'm wondering which flea spray takes care of them limiting my pictures?
Thank you to those who took the time to stop by my room with birthday wishes!! So much appreciated. **big grateful hugs** We had a loss of a furry-family member today and my special day kind of got put on hold here. Samantha Marie, Sissy C's loving doggie, was helped to the Bridge today. She will be incredibly missed by the humans, not so much by us kitties. She was big and scary if you get my drift! *winks*

Dear Diary and Catster Friends,
I’ve been trying to send out my thanks for my lovely birthday wishes, but I can’t seem to wrangle my personal assistant long enough to do so. That little one I refer to as 'puppet', aka Muppet, has been running mom ragged for several days now. Mupp’s going to be just fine, she just needs a few more days of R&R and is requiring a lot of mom’s time. Whispers...."I personally think it's mostly because mom is such a worrier and Mupp is really taking advantage of that. Who's the puppet attached to the strings now, mom?" Humph! *giggles*
So, for now, let me express my gratitude to every fur who stopped by to wish me a happy 6th birthday. I appreciate you all and I had a wonderful day. ~hugs~ Mom bought us all some sardine Tiki food to celebrate with and snuck me some tuna fish later in the evening. Yum!
I will trot around when mom has some free time to help me meow my personal thanks.

OMC! I was so happy when I discovered that my diary was randomly selected by the diary robot carefully hand picked as the DOTD! *MOL -giggles*
I’ve had a very special day thanks to all of my friends helping me to celebrate. ~big hugs~ I love all of the kind and silly comments, p-mails & gifties with notes that kitties sent my way! So much appreciated. ~purrs~
Now as for my furmates that I live with, that’s another story. I think they each purposely set out to ruin my day by nonstop trying to attract mom’s attention! Humph! All the way from Sampson leaving mom two messes on the carpet to shampoo up, to Krikit having some weird asthma-like attack this afternoon, to Muppet going on an over-the-fence adventure that just about gave mom a heart attack….. do you get my drift?
Oh! And Mystique, the outside kitty mom’s been trying to catch, when mom went running after Muppet she left the back slider cracked open a bit. None of us could fit through it but Mystique is so skinny that she did. So when mom finally caught Muppet and came back through the front door and went into the dining room, there sat Mystique inside! OMC! She was in-between mom and the back slider and mom tried to lead her with food away from the door so mom could get it closed, but Mystique caught on to that and slipped back outside. Arrgh! All this on MY special day! Welcome to my crazy Palace! Mol!
My beau George is so funny, he dropped by this morning just to chat and say hello and gave me a beautiful rainbow star. Then when he got back home, his furmates teased him because he had no idea that I was a diary pick! Mol! I sure do love my sweet George! *blows him kisses* And thanks George for the diary you wrote about me and your furmates today!
I’m not sure about this evening, but for sure by tomorrow mom and I will trot around Catsterland and pass out my grateful meows to the kitties who kindly stopped by my room today.
Purring & praying for the ill kitties & doggies, and also special prayers for those who’ve lost a beloved fur baby. Charlie & Gleek need some extra purrs that their struvite crystals go away for good. And Miss Meatball, who had cancer removed from her face, could use lots of purrs too.
Grateful Trills & Love
