Party Reminder!

Dear Diary,

My silly mom is all excited about my 17th birthday party in the brusselball group spa! Here is the url for the group: http://www.catster.com/group/Brusselball-10047 I think the admins will accept your request to join if you ask to.

You see, before me and Emily, mommy had one cat as a grown up; Gabrielle. Gabby didn't quite make it to 11 years old and Gabby was mommy's heart kitty. I won't go into all the details of her journey to the Bridge. Suffice it to say, that it was 'cause of Gabby and then Lucinda that mommy promised me that I and my sis, Emily Felicity, would NOT suffer because mommy couldn't stand to let us go.

As many of you know, my sis, Emily, had to make her journey when she was only 14.5 years old. So I've been without her for a while now. Daddy always said he thought sis would outlive me, because I was fat... But what does daddy know? LOL! I'm fixin' to turn 17!

I get my sub-q fluids twice a week. And I'm down under 8 lbs in weight. But I still have my appetite and still bat Salem on the head when he is a pain. And still sleep with my mommy.

Mom doubts that I will have an 18th birthday - because of that promise she made... so if you could make it to this party, well, I'd really appreciate it!

purrs,
Edgar

 

A Party!!

Dear Diary,

I know I haven't written in a really, really long time! It's all momma's fault. She spends all her time on Facebook now. :(

I have a birthday coming up! A week from tomorrow I will be 17! And my good friends in the brusselball spa said I could have a party!!! So, if you are a brusselball group member, please come a week from tomorrow, Tuesday, Jan. 8th at 7 p.m. Central time! If you are not a member but you are my furriend and you would like to come to my party, please request membership in the group and tell 'em Edgar sent you! :)

As for what's up with me... well, like I said, mom has been woefully deficient in keeping up my diary... I now weigh under 10 lbs. and I get sub-q fluids at home from mommy and daddy twice a week. Still take my daily benazepril for my kidneys too. I still have my appetite, mostly. But I don't do a lot but sleep and eat.

I've sort of learned to get along with Salem and Lucy. The screen door has come down and they are loose in the house all of the time. All three of us slept with momma the other night, but only because I was too tired to kick them off the bed. :(

I've been pooping in inappropriate places in the house from time to time again... just marking my territory, mom thinks. I'm not telling why I'm doing it.

Mom still thinks I'm the cutest thing ever and still calls me "my little orange boy too." That dates back to when Emily Felicity and I were adopted by mom as teeny tiny kittens and she, mom, came to just get a girl but said: "Oh give me the little orange boy too!" *sigh* That was a loooong time ago. I miss my sister, Emily. Can't believe I've gone on this long without her.

love you all.

purrrs,
Edgar

P.S. Please DO come to the birthday party!! It will be fun!

 

Doin' Fine... on the three month check-up plan now

Hey cats 'n kittens! Been a long time since I wrote... Sorry about that. Here's my news: A few weeks ago mommy, daddy and grandma witnessed me having what the vet said was a seizure. It wasn't dramatic... I just pulled up one front paw real high to my shoulder, like I had a cramp and arched my back and walked around funny and stared a bit... Vet said I had toxins in my blood from my kidneys not working so well. He gave me sub-q fluids and some antibiotic for a slight bladder infection.

Since the vet visit I seem to be doing purrty well! I'm eating tons! Mommy is giving me an extra half can of Fancy Feast in the evenings when Salem and Lucy have been put up for the night.

I still don't care for Salem and Lucy but we are pretty calm around each other these days. And hey... only took 20 months or so!

Well that's all for now.

purrs,
Edgar

P.S. Mom still has not decided whether to have the vet show her how to do sub-q's at home. Mom's doctor friend told her they used to do that with human infants sometimes but that the "discomfort" for the infant was a problem. Mom never thought about that before, but thinks it might hurt if someone wanted to inject a bunch of water under her skin... Mom has always promised me no extraordinary measures to prolong my life. But she just hasn't made up her mind about sub-q's... if my kidneys quitting on me are the only health problem I seem to have... well... hard times. Gettin' old ain't no fun.

 

Salem is being a pain

Dear Diary,

Mommy and daddy left for a while and they locked up Salem and Lucy in their room, with the screen door, while they were gone so that Lucy wouldn't eat my food that the sitter had to crush my pill in and so that Salem wouldn't pick on me. (I wasn't supposed to know about that pill in the food thing, but seriously, who do they think they are kidding?).

I didn't like them being gone and I pooped in a lot of places around the house to try to help them find their way back home. Seems to have worked. Those ingrates, Salem and Lucy, didn't thank me though.

But now that they are home and the beast (Salem) is loose again, it seems he has a bug up his butt and he has TWICE now attacked me when I was trying to rest peacefully on a kitchen chair. Mommy thinks maybe he is just feeling frisky because he is happy they are home and he is not locked up any more. I, purrsonally, think he is being a PAIN!

Edgar

 

What's up with me

Dear Diary,

Well, life has been strange lately. For a whole week momma was locking herself up in the guest room and wouldn't touch me. She would talk to me from a distance and tell me that she loved me but I didn't believe her, because she wouldn't touch me! Thanks goodness whatever madness overtook momma, she seems to have gotten over it and things are okay again now. She is hugging and kissing me again and last night she slept in her own bed with me. Although she didn't tuck me under the covers and cuddle me up by her neck like she should. But maybe she'll come around and get back to normal.

As for me and my *ahem* brofur, Salem... well... I guess I don't just totally "hate" him... I mean he actually is sort of okay for "team begging." "Team begging" is where your daddy is eating something that might be really good and you might really want a bite and if two of you stand sort of close together and give him the "I am dying of hunger" stare it is double the cuteness and harder for a daddy to resist.

And when Salem and I fight anymore, well... I guess I'd have to admit that my heart isn't in it like it used to be. I think I "got my bluff in" and he knows I'm supposed to be the boss.

I'd still prefer momma all to myself, but... well I guess, maybe, it's okay if Salem and Lucy are around. As long as they remember I'M BOSS!

Today is my dear angel friend, Arnold P.'s birthday. He was the bestest furriend I effur had. I miss him a lot. Happy birthday Arnie! I will meet you in catson someday... not too soon I hope... but not too long.

purrrs,
Edgar

Dear Diary,

And now it is Sissy. Beloved furnalist of Olde Furts, dedicated administrator, sweet friend. Kind and unassuming. Always thoughtful. She had 19 years on this earth and they were not enough.

Rest in peace beloved friend. I will never forget you.

can't purr,
Edgar

 

I'm heartbroken...

Dear Diary,

I learned tonight that my pal, Taz, made his journey to the Bridge today (I'm sorry, my mommy has forgotten how to make links in my diary). When I joined the Olde Furts group back in 2008 there were two pawsome orangies that I got to know pretty well and be furriends with, Calvin and Taz.

There are, and were then, lots of pawsome orangies in the group, but these two guys were special to me because I got to know 'em a little better than the others and they were my friends, right off the bat. They were both older than I am, and they were both cuter than I am and they were both my idols. Calvin made his journey in 2009, about a year and a half after I joined, and now, today, Taz has his wings.

I know they probably didn't feel about me the way I felt about them. But to me, it feels like now I'm alone. :~(

I miss you guys.

sad purrs,
Edgar

 

I still hate them. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!

Dear Diary,

Reports from other cats in this house that I might have done things like, oh say, walked side by side with Salem, or sat peacefully in near him to beg for ham should not be trusted! I still hate them both. And I do not "squall" like a baby. When I scream it's only because he is trying to murder me!!

When mommy locks them up for the night and then goes back in there to kiss them goodnight, I stand outside the screen door sometimes and poke my tongue out at Salem! MOL!

I think I could take that little fat black one... but the scrawny gray thing is always there to back her up. *sigh* I guy really shouldn't have to put up with this litter in his golden years.

purrs,
Edgar

 

Report on us and a video.

Dear Diary,

Mom said I should write to let effuryone know how we are all doing. I miss Catster and wish mommy would let me play on it more. :~(

I'm doing okay. Overdue for my regular check-up and shots. Mom will try to remember to call to get me in tomorrow. Got a birthday coming up soon, 16! I'll be able to drive!

Dad thinks I don't see very well anymore. I'm cranky a lot. And I've gotten a little picky about my canned Fancy Feast. Every once and a while they put down a flavor that I just won't eat. I still sleep with mom effury night. Except for just a couple nights last week when she locked me out! (Note from mom: I just got back from thyroid surgery, he sometimes lies down on or walks on my neck at night).

Salem and Lucy still get locked up at night but they are out in MY house most of the day! We are getting along a whole lot better these days. But we still get in fights. And I still hate them. Salem stalks me! And he jumps me when I'm in the litter box! Rude dude.

They both seem healthy. Lucy gets a poopy bottom all the time... I think she sits down in the box when she poops! But she is such a piggy for canned food that mommy and daddy can clean her bottom with paper towels when she is eating and she never stops eating! MOL! Daddy says you could shave her butt while she was eating and she wouldn't care!

I posted a video of me sort of playing with Salem. That's pretty much all the news. I hope all my furriends are well.

purrs & love,
Edgar

 

What's up with us

Dear Diary,

I'm so sorry friends, I should have let you all know on here (mommy posted on FB), I did NOT have to be shaved so I didn't have to be sedated. The vet tech was able to comb/brush all my bad spots out.

And I gained a half pound and my kidneys are "maintaining" on the 1/2 Benazepril daily. :~) So that's not bad news for an older fellow, like me. And I sure do feel good after getting those mats taken care of! I've been "full of beans" as we say down here in Oklahoma!

In family news, the difference around here is pretty incredible. It has been so gradual that mommy has commented on it much. But she noticed this morning that Salem was curled in a cat bed on the dining room table, while 6 feet away maybe was Lucy in mommy's chair at the kitchen table and then I walked up to graze on some kibble just 3.5 feet maybe, away from Lucy's chair. We are *almost* like one happy family.

Salem and Lucy still spend the night locked up in the office. And will until I go to the Bridge. My getting to snuggle with mommy at night, undisturbed by younger adopted siblings, is holy and will not be altered. And, if mommy and daddy are gone, they get locked up in the office with the screen door closed. But we may be getting close to the point where they are only locked up at night. Not sure yet.

Mommy still insists on closing off her bedroom door when they are out. I don't like this because I like to sleep on the bed. But mommy thinks I would like this if I understood that she did it so that no one else sleeps on the bed and there is no scent of Salem or Lucy in that room. It is MY room. Also, mom doesn't want me to poop on her bed again to make it clear that it is MY room! LOL!

So that's all the news that is fit to print.

purrs & headbonks,
Edgar
