Mom came to get me at the v.e.t. yesterday after work. Oh boy, was I happy!! I was in my carrier bonking, rubbing and PURRING!! I was going HOME! The girls at the v.e.t. all loved me, and I love them all. Although I didn’t have my procedure, I still needed some quiet time when I got home, because of the anesthesia.
Mom and dad spent 2 hours in the family room with me, just ME! I pranced, rolled, rubbed, did my signature ‘air paws’, purred and mewed. My eyes are bright, fur is sleek and soft and weight is good. I was very hungry and ate all of my wet food, and some dry. Dad let my brothers and sisters into the family room and it was like the good old days. Mom was so happy to see my happy attitude, compared to my hiding from her all last week with that awful m.e.d.i.c.i.n.e. she was putting in my ear.
This morning I was still full of love and vigor. But… I am having trouble eating. I am hungry and have a good appetite! But it is hard… I ate half of my wet food and picked at my kibbles. I went around to all of the Krew’s dry food bowls after they left, picked up kibbles and let them drop. It breaks mom’s heart, but she is going to do everything possible to make me comfortable and happy. She is getting my favorite snack for me today, it’s turkey! That and some yummy baby food too. Mom won’t let me suffer, she and dad love me very much.
I have a beautiful new guardian angel watching over me, her name is AGGIE. She made her Bridge Journey the day before I was diagnosed with an inoperable tumor…. Ironically the very same issue that she and her family so valiantly fought. I love you, my Guardian Angel Aggie, I beliEVE.
I am loved!
I love all of you too!

Thank you all for your purrs and for filling my Purr Jar! I will never let it out of my sight. Despite all of the love and purrs, my doctor found a large inoperable tumor at the back of my throat today. I was to have my toofies cleaned and 3 removed, but my good doctor did not do so because I'm already weakened. With leaking eyes, my mom wrote this for me:
"Those with animals know how deeply they touch your heart. I am sincerely grateful to all who have come together in support and love for my best little buddy Poo. His doctor is not going through with his surgery, as he found a large inoperable mass in the back of his throat after having put him under anesthesia. I will know tomorrow what it is, he said it is most likely cancer. It is not looking good for Poo. Jim and I am going to give him all of the love and care that we can for as long as we can."
So for now mom and dad are going to spoil me rotten and love me up so much. Thank you for beliEVEing in me. Let's fight for a cure for cancer.

I came downstairs this morning to find my Purr Jar overflowing with all of your purrs and wonderful love! Thank you my friends!!
I am on Day 4 of my ear medicine, and I am really tired of it. Mom has to keep it in the fridge, and it's COLD! I am keeping my distance from her, but she still manages to catch me. I hate it, but I know it is helping me. I know when the safe times are to be near mom. When that happens, I lay against her side on my back, purring happily as she puts her arm around me and softly strokes my chin.
That lump on my chin.
Mom is still beliEVEing that it is swollen lymph nodes from my ear infection and whatever is going on in my mouth. She and Dr. Pogrel think I may still be having toofie issues, and I will be going back to the v.e.t. on Thursday 4/25. He will give me something to make me very sleepy so that I won't know what is going on, and he will take care of me. My lump is NOT cancer. NO!! I've lost 2.5 pounds, and mom is making sure I eat, even if I run away from my bowl as if it bit me. Silly mom, following me around with my breakfast bowl. MOL MOL
*clutches Purr Jar tight*
This will help see me through. The love, the purrs, the POTP, and beliEVEing! I sincerely appreciate all of the support of the community. Thank you for being here with me as I heal and eventually find out what the next steps will be this week.

It has been a while since I’ve written to you. How have you been? *giggles*
Okay. Trying to be a little silly here, despite my fear. I am going to be 12 years old very soon and I’ve been really lucky with my health. Until now. I was unceremoniously put into the “Port-A-Jail” and driven to the v.e.t. yesterday. Oh, how I howled my indignation and displeasure!
When we got there, I kept trying to bury my face in mom’s hand, ‘hiding’. I shouldn’t have though, as my doctor is a very good doctor. I’ve lost weight in the last few weeks. Almost 3 pounds… and it’s because I seem to have trouble eating. I had bad teeth 5 years ago, which were pulled, and it could be that I’m having more troubles. That in addition to my ear bugging me. Sheesh! When it rains it pours!
So, I am having my ear and teeth treated, but I have a lump. Mom got really quiet when my good doctor said that there is a chance that I might have cancer. Just a chance. We will NOT beliEVE this and will focus on positive energy! I have a lump under my chin that he didn’t like… however he said it could be enlarged lymph nodes from my toofie/ear infections. So I am having yucky drops put in my ear for 2 weeks, and I have to go back to the Place With White Coats next week. I guess they give me something to let me snooze while they clean me up and do a biopsy. Hmmm sleeping sounds really nice! Anyhow… as a result of this little bump in my road of life, mom is being really lovey dovey, MORE so than normal.
If you can spare a purr for me, I’ll put it in the Purr Jar. I think the more purrs I have in there, the less chance my lump will be cancer?? Yes, I think so! Pawsitive thoughts!!
Okay dear diary, I am sorry I’ve been so neglectful of you. I promise to stay I touch more often.

Title CATch your eye? What.... you've never gone banana hunting? Let me share the best kept secret with you. Bananas are evil and MUST be hunted. I have been hunting bananas for many years now, and I am always successful with my catch. They tease and torment me, but I quietly sneak up on them.... tail up.... butt wiggle.... and..... POUNCE! Gotcha! I carry my prize to my mom, YOWLING loudly. Yes, I can yowl with the evil banana in my mouth! The world is safe as long as I continue to hunt these evil bananas. *PROUD PURRRRSSSS*
(mom speaking) Poo thinks he's a great hunter, and I praise him for it. Nobody hunts bananas like Poo does.... it is actually a plush banana toy that he "captures and kills" and brings back to me, yowling with pride. He yowls with this toy in his mouth MOL MOL It has been his favorite toy for many many years; its been through the wash, its been mended, and he just loves it. None of the others touch it. It is Poo's toy. I feel safe from the evil bananas that are trying to infiltrate our home. Thank you, Poo. I always graciously thank him as he drops his 'kill' at my feet.

I've been tagged by my goodest friend CHAI!
1. Do you ever wake your parent up in the night?
Oh yes, all the time. Right around 2 or 3 in the morning, it is playtime. Every night, as it should be. Whenever I “catch” a toy mouse or my favorite catnip banana, I yowl and YEEOOOOWWLLL with it in my mouth. I don’t know why I do this? It sure is fun making a lot of noise in the dead of night.
2. Do you ever tear up things?
OMC! Don’t get me started. I have a PASSION for toilet paper and paper towels. I go into a tearing frenzy when I get my paws on it. *giggles* thanks to ME, mom has no toilet paper on the rolls and has the paper towels hidden behind the coffee maker. Don’t tell her, I know how to open doors and drawers. I stand on my hind paws, put my front paws on the top of the door, and back up. Voila! Open door! Voila! Toilet paper at my disposal! MOL MOL MOL!
3. What is your favorite treat?
Chicken!!!!! I always know when mom is cutting up delicious juicy chicken. I have kitty ESP… I come a running out of nowhere when I sense this delectable treat.
4. Can you fetch something when asked to do so?
Oh, dear no. My human knows better than to ask me to do anything. I am so above that, as cats should be. I will carry my toys around in my mouth and take them where I please; it is MY toy and MY decision to do what I want with them; not the human’s!
5. Have you ever lived any place other than where you live now?
I sure have! I was living at the Martinez Animal Shelter in California when mom came to rescue me!!! I then lived in a beautiful little cottage, being an inside kitty always. I then moved all the way across the country to Minnesota where I lived in a townhouse for a little over a year, and after that we moved into our big pretty house where I’ve lived for the last 7 years. And I’m not done yet… I get to move back to California this fall!! Yippieee I love all of my homes!
I am going to tag REX, GIDGIT, PIGEON and MILO!

Tigger and I had a WONDERFUL birthday on Monday, day before yesterday and we wish to thank all of our friends for the beautiful gifts that they left on our pages. You've made us feel so very special and loved.
So why is the topic of this diary entry one of frustration? It is because of the "new" and not improved Catster. The Community Page will not load, it either crashes or takes forever to load, and we cannot get to our friends pages to write individual notes of thanks and appreciation. It is an unbelievably frustrating waste of our time. Catster has become more frustrating than it has been fun, and we LOVE Catster. All that we want is for things to he user friendly and to work properly as they used to. We know that the problem lies in the new Community Page and not our browser(s) for we've tried several, and all other websites we access work just fine.
Tigger and I are terribly embarrassed that we cannot get to our friends pages to thank them. Our friends are the most important thing in the world to us! (next to breakfast and dinner of course MOL)
We don't even read diaries any more like we used to, and we WANT TO! I wouldn't blame our friends for not attempting to access our diaries because of these changes.
Okay, I have ranted and I feel better for now.
*steps off of soap box*
Now I wish to thank my friends for the beautiful gifts!
To Orkney and the girls for the cupcake!
To Alfie for the party hat!
To Miss Sable Kitty and family for the delicious champagne!
To my GORGEOUS, STUNNING, ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL wife, Patchez for the big, frosted chocolate cake! (I love you so much!)
To Muppet and family for the cuppycake!
To Bo and family for the HUGE chokky cake!
To Tabby and family for the cuppycake!
To Dino and family for the cuppycake!
To Mr. Sam for the cool summer drink!
To Chai and family for the flag!
To Big Harry and family for the yummy shrimp!
To Charlie for the kite!
To Adam Dylan and family for the Flag!
To Aggie and family for the Heart!
To Wanda and family for the kite!
To Luna for the ladybug!
We love you all!
Happy purrs to our friends
Poo & Tigger too

May the Power of the Paw shed its healing energy on my new friend, SPRINKLES. Her brother Donut wrote this in our MAN Cats at Work Group, reaching out for a little help:
My sisfur is sick. She refused to drink any water. Mama even tried to give her chicken stock, but she wouldn't drink any of it. She isn't playful. All she's been doing is sleep. Her gums which are normally pink are pale and sticky. Yesterday one of her pupils was bigger than the other. There wasn't any poo in her corner of the litterbox. She doesn't want to eat very much. Mama has been worried about her. And I am too. I love my sisfur. I need some mancats to purr for her. I know she is a girl cat, but still. She's my sisfur. She even protects me from the big noisy vacuum. She is going to be going to the vet tomorrow or Friday. Mama can't get off work. She's been doing all she can, so please purray for my sisfur Sprinkles.
We at Catster are all purring for you! May we show this family how cared for they are, and purr for them?

I see it watching me… it is taunting me. I see it laughing, mocking me, inviting me to attack. I just can’t help it… any time I see toilet paper I get the Kitty Crazies and must attack and destroy this monstrous invader! I must purrtect my family from the Evil Toilet Paper Monster!
Mom knows how dangerous this intruder is. She keeps it safely caged away inside drawers. She knows that she can’t keep it out in the open on the roller thingies, for I MUST defend my family and shred the Toilet Paper Monster to little bits!! Mom doesn’t get it, but it is all in the interest in purrtecting my family. I’ve learned that the Toilet Paper Monster is just as dangerous while lurking inside its dark drawers… it is evil and I KNOW it is in there! I put on my invisible superkitty cape and open those drawers… yep, all by myself. I stand on my hind legs, put my front paws on the drawer front, and back up… pulling the drawer open, exposing the MONSTER that lurks within. With a deft swoop, I snatch the evil being and claw it to pieces! I bunny-kick it into submission and leave little tatters all over the bathroom… but WAIT! I’m not done! It’s still after me, so I pounce and shred it more! I spread shreds of the Toilet Paper Monster all over the house!!! OMC! I am a hero! I bet mom will be really proud of me when she gets home, knowing I saved the household from the Evil Toilet Paper Monster. Maybe I’ll get extra treats and praise tonight for being so brave!
