When my Mommy snuggles me to sleep

Being away from my Mommy, I cantz survive without her, and she cantz survive without me

Favorite Toy:

Favorite Nap Spot:

Favorite Food:
I likez my Evo, that is all Mommy will feed me cuz of my terrible IBD.

Mommy tells me that my will to survive, my strength and my spirit are the most special things about me.


Arrival Story:
I am such a lucky cat!! I was born in the back of a pontoon boat - unfortunately, the man I now know as Dad sold the pontoon boat to a relative in Minnesota and didn't know that I was in there! I have 1 sister and two brothers. We went for a 14 hour ride in the back of the pontoon boat all the way to Minnesota!!! It was so cold and we were only 3 weeks old without our Mama. When we got to Minnesota we were near death, we were starved and so cold! My new Mom took us kitties in and bottled raised us for 5 more weeks! She must love us so much!!! Well, she found a home for my siblings and decided to keep me! How lucky am I??? :-) She loves me soooo much, more than anything and we are sooooo close!! Meow!

I am Madi-Hawk and I DONTZ give up!!

Thank you HQ fur the wonderpurr honor! I am THRILLED, how exciting!!!!!

I want to give a special shout out to ALL of my wonderpurr furriends fur always staying by my side through the trials and tribulations of my little life! It is because of you, your purrs, purrayers, never ending love and support, AND the Power of the Paw that I continue to hang in there!

My eye is almost completely healed, for which I am SO thankful.
I am now pawficially OFF steroids, and the atopica is controlling my IBD quite well! THANKFULLY!

The one very down side is that my tremors are back, so uncontrollable, that Mommy is just worried sick all the time. The doctors have gone back to the original diagnosis of hyperesthesia, amazing how things do a 360 every once in a while. I had my furst session of accupuncture yesterday, and it didn't go very well because my skin is so sensitive. But, we will keep trying because it has helped me in the past. Mommy also ordered me gabapentin, specially compounded fur my little body. We are hoping to receive it on Monday. That also has helped the tremors in the past. Mommy said I look like I have severe, severe parkinsons - I dontz like it much either. She can't tell if I am in pain, but she knows that it is definitely uncomfortable. Between her, my doctors, my wonderpurr furriends and all my Aunties, we will make these nasty tremors go away once and fur all. Keep those purrs coming!

Thank you again HQ fur the most wonderpurr honor!!!!!

Dear furriends ~ It's ME, MADI-HAWK! What, you don't recognize me wifout my cone? YUP, it's ME! I went back to MSU today fur a checkup. My eye is doing GREAT!

The ulcer is COMPLETELY healed (what ulcer you ask?? MOL)
The graft is fully attached and now has blood vessels running through it, which means that it is becoming PART of my eye, just as it should!

The doctor said........ Wow, that looks fantastic! And then he took pictures (because it is a teaching hospital) - and they had pictures from befur too.

Now I only have to get ONE drop evfurry EIGHT hours!!!!!!! I am thrilled about that! And, I get to keep my cone off, as long as I don't excessively rub at my eye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The atopica has my diarrhea under FULL control amazingly! I am down to 2.5 mg of steroids every OTHER day (when I was getting 7.5 evfurry day) so Mom and the doctors are thrilled about that!

The one bad note is that my tremors are back, very badly - The steroids kept them under control, and now that I am on such a low dose, they are back........ Mommy can't tell if I am in pain when it happens, or not. Remember, 14 months ago, I had muscle and nerve biopsies, EMG, etc - to figure out *what the heck* was going on with my tremors - and these tests gave us no answer.

Well, I guess it is back to the drawing board fur Mommy and my staff, to see if there is something else that can help these tremors.

BUT, I am THRILLED that I get to keep my eye, THRILLED that it is healing, and THRILLED that I gotz my cone off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sending all of you big hugs, luvs and kitty kisses!


We're back!

We gotz back from MSU a while ago, and the visit went very well. The doctor said that my eye was MUCH improved and that the prognosis for vision went from poor to fair, based on the healing of the bullous keratopathy. Mommy was very happy and they told her what I already knew - that she was the most devoted, dedicated Mommy in the world! The bullous is less than HALF the original size - the ulcer is also MUCH smaller, so we are very happy.

I am waiting fur my aunties to get here, they should be here soon! I can't WAIT to meet them!

Much love to all!
