Dear Dogs and Cats

Mama thought this sounded a lot like
me in some places so she thought she'd
put it in my diary... mol!!


Dear Dogs and Cats,

The dishes with the paw print are
yours and contain your food. The
other dishes are mine and contain
my food. Please note, placing a paw
print in the middle of my plate and
food does not stake a claim for it
becoming your food and dish, nor
do I find that aesthetically pleasing
in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by
NASCAR and is not a racetrack.
Beating me to the bottom is not the
object. Tripping me doesn't help
because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than
a king sized bed. I am very sorry
about this. Do not think I will continue
sleeping on the couch to ensure your
comfort. Dogs and cats can actually
curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is
not necessary to sleep perpendicular to
each other stretched out to the fullest
extent possible. I also know that sticking
tails straight out and having tongues
hanging out the other end to maximize
space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time,there is not a secret
exit from the bathroom. If by some
miracle I beat you there and manage
to get the door shut, it is not necessary
to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the
knob or get your paw under the edge
and try to pull the door open. I must
exit through the same door I entered.
Also, I have been using the bathroom
for years -- canine or feline attendance
is not required.

The proper order is kiss me, then go
smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot
stress this enough!

To pacify you, my dear pets, I have
posted the following message on our
front door:

To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit &
Like to Complain About Our Pets:

1. They live here. You don't.

2. If you don't want their hair on your
clothes, stay off the furniture.
(That's why they call it 'fur'niture.)

3. I like my pets a lot better than
I like most people.

4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she
is an adopted son/daughter who is short,
hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't
speak clearly.

Remember: In many ways, dogs and
cats are better than kids because they:

1. Eat less
2. Don't ask for money all the time
3. Are easier to train
4. Normally come when called
5. Never ask to drive the car
6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends
7. Don't smoke or drink
8. Don't have to buy the latest fashions
9. Don't want to wear your clothes
10. Don't need a 'gazillion' dollars for college.

And finally,

11. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children.


Being Lazy

Haven't really gotten into much
lately. Lilly's been leaving me
along pretty much and Zilla's
not doing much more than just
laying in the kitchen. She's getting
lots of attention from mama... just
cuz she's sick... ppfftt. She's probably
faking... just for the attention... the
little upstart...

Lilly left for a bit yesterday and came back smelling like that vet place and
something else funny. It's different so I'm stressing it... and that means I'm
hurting. Mama tried to give me my medicine in some baby food, but I could
smell it anyway! So she had to give it to me directly which was NOT fun for
either of us! She put some food down for me, but after eating about half, I
threw it all up... and most likely most of the medicine too... mama doesn't
want to redose me... she's hoping enough got in to help with the pain... she'll
probably give me some more tomorrow night... I ate a bit of the food that was
left and went to lie down...

Mama just told me! I'm one of the Daily Diary Picks! Yippee!! ~does da happy
kitty dance~ Owie... my hips can't do that anymore... better contain myself.
I'm looking at a pretty good day today! Two of my sisters have to make a trip
to the vet so I get a little peace and quiet. It's going to be wonderful! Lilly
won't be chasing me and stalking me like she usually does. And mama won't
be here to move me off her pillow... wonder how much fur I can get on it
before she gets home... hehehe...


My brother...

Mama's been thinking about adding my brother, Henry. She finally did, over on Dogster. I never knew him, but I knew his scent. It was still in the house when mama brought me home, but I'm the only kitty here that ever lived there so the others can't say much about him. Mama's going to have to break out the scanner again to get some more pictures of him in here. She was still crying for him some when she got me so I guess I have a sort of connection with him that my sisters don't.

I've been being pretty lazy lately, as usual. I got some really good food for Christmas from my Aunt Debbie. Mama's been mixing a little pumpkin in with it a few times a week. She was giving me a little pumpkin with my food every day, but I got sick really bad so she cut it back. I've only gotten sick that once but since mama's not sure if it was the food, a hairball or what, she's going to stay on the safe side with a little less... I'm not complaining... I'm not overly fond of the taste anyway... mol! It's worked a little at least though... my litterbox visits are still VERY frequent (most times it's just a false alarm) and when I do go, it actually has a FORM to it! Yippee! Maybe the runny mess won't be part of my life anymore... strange to be happy about something so icky... MOL!!

There's this little green thing mama has called a flea comb. I haven't had any
fleas for many years, but my fur is so fine, a regular brush won't catch much.
Because of my hips, I don't get combed very often, but mama's noticed my
fur feeling a little rough lately. I got combed!!!! Oooooo it was soooo
wonderful!! She got everywhere except my back left leg, which is bothering
me right now... she got several big bunches of fuzz off me!! I feel sooo much
better and all frisky! It's really hard to tell most of the time I'm as old as I am.

so many got tagged in this one, I won't tag anyone else this time around...

1 - My youngest sister to STOP chasing me!

3 - For bunches of kitties to get forever homes with lots of love and toys for
the holidays!
4 - Teeth would be nice... I wonder if they make kitty dentures...
5 - For my own personal petter so I can be pet ALL THE TIME!

Mama thought now might be a good time for my first diary entry.

There's no real way to know how old I am. At a best guess I'm 17. I'll be 18 on
March 15. Mama gave me her birthday for us to share. According to the vet
I'm in good shape for my age. A tiny bit of dehydration, but he said that's
actually normal for a cat. My heart, lungs, kidneys, all that seem good. I do
have hip displaysia that I take Metacam for. I haven't been on a regular dose
until a few days ago. I've been managing very well despite three younger cats
in the house that like to harrass me. But mama noticed me having a little more
trouble than usual getting in a chair, so we're going with the daily dose for a
little while.

Mama's been crying a lot lately seeing all the kitties who are so very sick and
who've gone to the bridge and such. My first entry is dedicated to all those
loving, stubborn, beautiful cats who hang on so tight! I've been mama's baby
for almost 10 years now, the one constant in her life so she knows how all the
mama's feel out there. I got some pretty bells from a young kitty recently
and she said she hopes to be like me and live a long life. Here's wishing all of us
the same thing... a long life in a loving home!!
