Mom and I are both fighting cancer. Luckily, hers is treatable skin cancer. She had some sort of preventative thingy done on her face and it’s all puffy-scary looking *giggles* so she stayed home from work today. Know what that means? A full day with ME!! I am so loved!
This morning I picked at my food again and am just not as interested in food. I still look good though! Now I am sitting in front of the open door (with screen) enjoying the fresh morning air and listening to the birds chirping. It is a beautiful morning. I am being really quiet, but mom and I keep looking at each other and doing “squeezy eyes” with each other. With that mom wants to reflect on memories of me and what makes her happy, so that she can look back on this and smile and smile always.
She FINALLY fixed my page after many many months! I love it and it is a tribute to fighting cancer, and she is going to keep my diary going for me. Here is a list of some of “Things That Are Only Poo”:
The best thing that I do is hunting bananas. I have a favorite plush banana that I sneak up on and attack, carrying it around in my mouth, yowling at the top of my lungs. I always do this right after breakfast and in the middle of the night; prefereably at 3:00 a.m. I don’t get why mom doesn’t want to get up and play with me??
My nickname is Poo’s Shoois. Shoes. I love shoes. I love to sit on mom’s shoes; she got a good picture of me this morning doing just that. I think I look rather cute in sparkly sandals!
I hold paws with her and I do Air-Paws when I’m really happy. I lay on my back purrrowrring and doing my happy feet in the air.
I have ESP, did you know? I KNOW when she is coming after me with the clippers to cut my nails, and I run and hide. TeeHee! She claims to call it a manicure. Oh right… I am smarter than that.
CHICKEN! My kingdom for chicken! Here is where my ESP kicks in again… I KNOW when she is cutting up chicken in the kitchen and I come running! It is my favorite treat, next to deli turkey. (See? She is just writing about chicken and I came and jumped up in her lap) We’re both purring :)
I am the only one that can tilt the water dish toward me. I lean on it so it tilts a little bit toward me, and it never spills.
I stole mom’s heart that day almost 12 years ago in July, when she was looking for kitten twins. I peeked out at her from that crowded shelter from within a cage that I shared with a nice tortie kitty. I will always wonder about my roommate, if she found a home. The shelter had a lot of sickness going on, and after I was adopted, I got really sick! I was only 8 weeks old and I stayed at the v.e.t. where everyone loved me and gave me toys. They let mom visit, and I had had fluids given to me intravenously in my upper back; the fluid made a big hump and I looked like the cutest little camel!
My brofur Tigger and I got out one day. Mom came home from work, horrified to see the back door ajar. Panicking, she looked all over for me, to find me quietly sitting in the grass watching her with amusement. (she was scared, and I would never do that again)
I have traveled 4000 miles!! I hate the car, but I got used to it. I moved from CA to MN and then from MN back to CA.
One of my most famous stunts was peeing in dad’s suitcase when he was dating mom. I HAD to show him who was boss and protect her. He passed the test though, and he is the best daddy ever!
When I talk to mom, I go “mmmm”. She say, “Poo” and I go, “mmmm”
Every morning and evening before breakfast and dinner, my sister Lily and I box together. We always do boxing matches before meals and have done so for years. I haven’t done this lately though. Soft purrs.
I sit BEHIND my drinking fountain to drink water. (it is more fun than sitting in front of it) MOL
Well dear diary and dear friends, thanks for listening. I hope you all have a beautiful day. Every day is a gift; cherish it. I learned that from my guardian angel Aggie’s brother, Ralphie.

It's funny that your mom would write this in your diary today because my mom was thinking about all the things she misses about me - my uniqueness - and she was going to put them in my diary tonight. You and I are very connected, Poo, and we have our moms thinking alike - SPOOKY!!! MOL MOL
