My silly sisfur Oreo just received an anonymouse POTP charm to help keep her stones away, and now I DID TOO!
Sweet anonymous gift giver, who are you???!! We want to thank you in purrson!
I have had litter box issues, yes, BUT! Mom has been giving me cranberry supplements every evening, along with a little glucosamine for pain management. Dear anonymous friend, I am feeling GOOD! (but... naughty always... *muffled giggles*)
Here is my secret message. If anyone can decode it, please paw mail me right away!
"A certain sister of yours was asking for some purrs for you.
She told some rather personal details about your litter box habits. We're hoping that was just a mild infection and not those icky stones. Power of the Paw and our Purrs too !"
SQUEEEE! I love love LOVE you, whoever you are!
*sits and waits with a huge oversized bouquet of electric blue sparkly Q-Tips for her good anonymous friend, anxiously awaiting him or her to reveal his or her identity, and to PLAY!*
Love love, LOVES!

Please furgive the redundancy of all of our diary entries; the big day has finally arrived, the day my family has been preparing for over the last 9 months. We are going to start our drive across the country very early tomorrow morning, Monday 10/18!
Things have been slowly disappearing from our house, and now the house is completely empty except for our kitty things and a few mundane human things. Well, kitty things take priority, right?? At first we were confused, a little scared and hesitant to venture about, now we’re having a ball, racing about the house and playing.
We will be driving 2000 miles from Minneapolis to San Francisco and it will take 3 full days of driving. Mom and dad will be driving all 7 of us kitties and our doggie sisfur Berkeley in the huge “van conversion” MOL MOL MOL which we’ve dubbed “The Ark”. We have faith in the Ark bringing us safely home, and we have a crew of Angel Kitties flying high above us, guiding us safely home. To all of our angel friends, thank you for guiding us and surrounding us with the safety and peace of mind that we need. Dad spent lots of money on the van to be sure it is in tip top shape for our trip, and mom got each of us our own carrier so that there is no possibility of any of us escaping. The house is full of Feliway, and catnip and we’ve had Rescue Remedy put in our water as calming agents.
Mom even had a Reiki session done for us last night, to bathe us in healing energy and calmness. During the session, we were all very relaxed, purring and snoozing. We will do what we can to make this as easy as possible.
We will be camping out in the van, all of us together for 2 nights. *giggles* we thought it would be a challenge to sneak 7 cats and a dog into a motel… MOL! The idea of camping at KOA campgrounds offers some excitement and fun to the trip. We should be arriving on 10/20.
I’m afurraid my family and I will be going silent for a bit. To those that have our email and cell, we sure would love to hear from you, and mom will do her best to update you.
To all who have offered your purrs and prayers, we are sincerely grateful. My family and I love you all! We will see you on the other side, ready to celebrate and have fun again!
oh..... I have Q-Tips already stashed EVERYWHERE in the van, mom doesn't know it yet. Mahahahaha!
Love, Lily & the Kalifurnia Krew

I have many many thank you notes to write for the overflowing of love, gifts, messages and happiness shared with me for my Cat of the Day honor on Tuesday!
I am writing briefly in my diary in the hope that you'll read that I'll be in touch with each and every one of you very soon; mom has this "visitruder" issue at work where she's training a new person in and has no space. So she can't play on Catster like normal. *giggles*
I love all of you so much; you are as special to me as you've made me feel.
Love and Q-Tips,

*zzzzoooooooooommmmsss over in the Souped Up Pumpkin Mobile* What a furtastic surprise to wake up to find this purrfectly wonderful honor! Thank you HQ for honoring me (cutest me!) as today's COTD! This is my family's very first COTD honor and we are THRILLED!
Although my page says I'm from the Bay Area, CA, we aren't quite there yet. We are moving across the country in less than a month from Minnesota to California, and mom is just so excited that she couldn't wait to put that on our pages! *giggles* Humans! They are so strange... Anyhoo, we have a big adventure coming up, for we'll be driving almost 2000 miles. Mom had better pack up ALL of my Q-Tips.
*gives mom a "look"*
I made mom get to work extra early today so that I could write my thank you's and appreciation in my diary. She is stuck with a "visitruder" at work for the next three weeks and has no space or time to herself, being that she is presently training her replacement there. Like I said before... "HUMANS"! Don't they understand that Catster is far more important??
So because her space is so painfully invaded, I'm jumping onto Catster really quickly to express my gratitude for all of the kind notes and gifts that my friends have been sending. I promise that I'll respond to all of you when I can!
My goodest friend SMOKEY had a great suggestion the other day, and that was to have mom fill her pockets with stinky blue cheese and sardines in order to drive the visitruder out. MOL MOL MOL!
On an very happy note regarding my little sisfur Oreo, she is continuing to recover VERY nicely following her surgery for removing those bad stones from her bladder. She is blowing kisses to all of her friends and waving like mad, still showing off her pink shaved tummy (slathered with SPF 30 of course)
We love you all, thank you all, and thank you HQ for bringing a bright spot to our very stressed lives right now!
Gotta run for now before the visitruder gets here... *hits the gas on the Pumpkin Mobile and zzzooooooooooms off, flinging glitter encrusted celebratory Q-Tips everywhere*
Love and Q-Tips!
Lily (& the Kalifornia Krew & our frazzled typist too)

I was tagged by my goodest friend REX!! Come play the tag game with me; it is fun to learn about my friends!
1. Did you ever wake up your parents in the middle of the night?
Never. I am a princess.
2. Do you ever tear things up?
Ssshhhh…. Yes. I help Poo shred and destroy toilet paper and paper towels. I also LOVE to destroy paper bags.
3. What is my favorite treat?
Romaine lettuce. It keeps my svelte figure lean and healthy. (ohhhhh Curly…. *wink wink*)
4. Can you fetch something when asked to?
Well, yes actually! I LOVE to fetch! Especially Q-Tips and pom pom’s. Mom and I play Q-Tip and pom pom fetch for hours on end! It is especially fun to do the “Kramer” and skid across the linoleum in pursuit of my favorite toys!
5. Have you ever lived any place other than where you live now?
Yes, I was born in the house down the street, and mom carried me in her palm home while riding a bicycle! I’ve lived in my furever home for 5 years now, and I’ll be moving soon again, across the country to California! YIPPIEEESSSS!!
I'm going to make this an open tag and tag ALL of my friends who read my diary! LOVES!

I deliberately wait for mom to start cleaning my kitty box before I decide it's time to do my business in there. As soon as she starts to scoop, I jump in, give her my "look" and insinuate that she must stop what she's doing immediately. She must realize who the boss is around here. (whispers... and it is not her)
It is much fun, you should try it. It totally throws the human's schedule off kilter... and I take my sweet time doing my business. Mom just stops what she's doing... looks away to be polite and just waits for me to finish. I do this every single morning, and none of my other siblings do it.
Well, she does call me a little t.u.r.d., so I'm just living up to my namesake.
*flings a pawful of Q-Tips at mom, inviting her to play*
*sigh* Humans just don't get life and how to really live, do they?
purrs and Q-Tips to my kitty and doggy friends!

.....well.... not jail EXACTLY, but it sure felt like it. Yesterday morning mom was acting abnormal (SHE is abnormal MOL) We pick up on anything that is different; something new in the house, a feeling, something changed. Well, mom was putting all of our things in her bedroom (?!) Food, water, toys, Rescue Remedy, catnip, even a... a litter box!? In her bedroom?
So being naturally curious kitties, all 7 of us followed her to inspect everything, as kitties do. Next thing we know, she slips out and has locked us all in her bedroom!!! OMC! What is going on?? She put us in JAIL for the day!
Mom tried to explain to us (but we don't listen very well) that "visitruders" were going to be at the house all day long, putting in our new carpet. She didn't want to risk the Visitruders inadvertently leaving a door open for one of us to slip out, so she claims she put us in jail for our own safety.
*glares at mom*
Of course what is on the other side of the door is ALWAYS better, right? So we all had our noses to the bedroom door, wanting to be on the other side, and we spent the whole day here in jail.
Well.... I suppose it is a good thing. The visitruders were scary, we don't know them so we would've hidden anyways... plus they made a lot of noise banging around and doing whatever it is that hoomans do.
So finally at 11:30 p.m. (we'd been in JAIL for practically 18 hours!).... she set us free! Bail was made MOL MOL MOL! She opened the door and we all RAN downstairs.... and FROZE!! What on Earth?? Wait... there is new funny fuzzy brown stuff on our floors, where it used to be bare concrete? WHAT is this stuff? So we all cautiously did the Kitty Creep.... walking in slow motion, butts low to the ground, checking out every single inch of this newness. (Mom was MOL MOL MOL'ing at us)
*glares at mom again*
Mom, you should know we were making the territory safe for YOU. Hmmmpphhh. When we'd determined that all was safe and well and that the new fuzzy brown stuff wouldn't hurt us, OMC it was pawty time. We all rolled around on this new soft stuff in utter bliss! Combined with the fact that the visitruders were gone and that we'd been sprung from jail! This is GREAT! It always pays to be safe.
So if any visitruders invade your homes, take precaution. It is worth it to go to jail and be SAFE!

Although I am having a very, very happy birthday today, I am taking time to purr and pray for all of my sick friends. In particular, my brother in law HOOCH, and my goodest friends who are brother and sister, ADAM DYLAN and EVE LAYLA.
HOOCH has been in the hospital for 2 days now and his meowmy is very worried about him; for which I am too. Please purr for sweet HOOCH; even in times of distress, he and his family always take time to remember others. *wipes a tear away*
ADAM DYLAN has had bad diarrhea episodes and EVE LAYLA has not been eating well for several weeks now, and their meowmy is very scared for them, not knowing why this is happening, and doing all that she can. Much like Hooch’s meowmy, Adam & Eve’s meowmy never fails to support all of our friends in time of celebration and in time of need as well. Please purr for Adam and Eve too…
If you could take a moment to read all of their diaries, I know their families would be extremely grateful. Although Adam Dylan's latest diary entry is on a happy note, his meomy sent my meowmy an unhappy update late last night. It is scary going through these situations alone. I know there are many others out there who are sick and/or injured and I wish to include all in a purr chain.
Soft purrs for my friends, who mean so much to me
