We went back to the vet today. Tess has shown some small improvement as far as how she is feeling. She is still not very active and it is evident that she is not her old self, but she is some better. She does have lymphoma and being leukemia positive it will most likely spread faster, but we are taking one day at a time now, all we can do. The vet does not feel like she is in any pain right now, just tired. She did go out into the outdoor pen today by herself, she was exhausted by the time she got there, but enjoyed the day outside. We sure appreciate all of the purrs and prayers, I truly think they have helped. Thank you all.

Today is my sisfur Tess's birthday, she is seven. She needs purrs badly. She has been very sick for a week now, last week's lab test were not conclusive, but the vet thinks she has cancer. He spotted one tumor like object near her liver last week, today there were three. She is not improving. She is still eating and drinking but very inactive. We are going to try some prednisone and continue the antibiotics until Friday, if she is still continuing to decline meowmy will be tearfully helping her cross to the bridge. Please send purrs and prayers for Tess.

My super cool pal Tony has tagged me! Took me a couple of days to get to it, but here goes!
"Who are you really?"
1) Tell me your funny Christmas story.
We don't have Christmas decorations out or a tree since we are so destructive! The last time we did we tore up the presents and kept the tree in a horizonal position most of the time!
2) Where's your favorite hiding place when playing hide and go seek?
I hide behind the towel in hanging in the bathroom, meowmy always finds me though so maybe I should try to find a new spot!
3) What did you dream of being as a young kit?
To be king of the house!
4) What's your favorite hobby? Anything goes.
I like to pee on electrical things, appliances, tvs, etc....
5) Whats your one "bad habit" that you love and your Mom hates?
6) If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?
Kentucky Fried Chicken
7) What is your guilty pleasure? Food, skirts and suits or cars? What?
Chicken is my favorite thing, also like my stroller.
8) What is your favorite make believe monster? And yes girls, unicorns and fairies are included. Post a pic of this mysterious beast.
Are there any worse monsters than my sisfur Marie? My goodness if there is I hope I never meet them!
9) What is the one dreaded thing you have to do at home? Babysitting, taking baths, entertaining guests....what is your dread?
10) I’m not so sure if Zach and Zoe are going to have coed ships this year or not, but in any case, which ship would you want to be on: Zach’s, or Zoe’s?
Ships? You mean like on water....and with femfurs? You will find me under the bed!

Well I was back at the vet yesterday and all went pretty well. I have gained back the weight I had lost-well all but a tenth of a pound, so no labs for now. They did kinda spoof me though because they came in the room with a towel and I have been burritoed before! Usually just for a B12 they leave me in the carrier, believe me that is best for everyone involved and I have a top load carrier so it is easier. The vet decided since I was back on the gaining side he would just pop the top and give me a quick shot and let me be on my way, I think he is afraid of me!
I noticed the huge birthday prezzie is free now, don't know for how long, maybe just for today, so everyone who wants to give out a free prezzie rush over to the gift shop! Let's all eat cake!
Thanks everyone for all of the purrs and crossed paws, you are the best! Love to you all!

I had to go to the vet today for my B12 shot and my weigh-in. I have been feeling pretty well, with only some minor allergy problems, but I have lost four tenths of a pound in just 19 days. The vet is concerned, my last blood test showed me to be borderline anemic and meowmy is afraid my IBD may be getting worse. Especially since I have been eating good.
As for the good news meowmy has orders from the vet to feed me as much boiled chicken breast as I will eat along with my regular canned food. I will be going back in two weeks to be re-weighed, (sooner if meowmy gets paranoid) if there is no improvement we will do another round of blood test.
Keep your paws crossed for me please.

Here is a message from Xena Princess Warrior DG#23, she tried to put these comments in my diary but the fleas here prevented it! So I am posting it for everyone, thank you Xena and everyone for the comments!
We tired to comment on your previous diary but got the error 4 so we wanted to leave you our comments here for both.
You are so right Norman and we agree with every word you said! we are here to stay we love all of our friends, we are here to help others when they need it and to let them know we love them all...we have felt the love and support....
Now let's all move on, we can't change the past but we sure can make today and the future better....hopefully our friends that have left will return...we will go & spread the love to our friends and make new freinds making them feel welcomed.
Remember we all make our own choices and we each can make this site better...we all just have to move on...
Way to go Norman.....high paws to you
We have been doing just that reaching out to our friends, leaving comments on their pictures, diaries and going to some of our groups to check in....it is hard at times for Mom because this is her busy time of the year with taking care of her clients pets....mostly kitties now hooray for Mom...but we do come, we want to be here for all of our friends, send them love and support....we are not going anywhere...
Life is too short to dwell on what we can't change (fleas) but we can change what we do here, be positive and make new friends....love each other and be kind...give support when needed...and have fun....this is our site and we make it what we want it...thanks again Norman!
Xena and Mom

It is tough to lose friends here, especially if you don't have any other connection to them. You never know what happened, did they get upset and leave, just grow tired of it, maybe they did not have enough purrsons to welcome them?
It is harder to find the new members than it used to be, the changes have a lot of us so frustrated we have have just given up looking around much.
The forum is a good place to find new purrsons posting, especially if they are in need of advice or help. I am going to make an effort to check it a little more often as well as the daily diary picks.
If everyone invested just a few more minutes a week, it would make a huge difference! I welcome anyone with any other suggestions to post them here.
I WANT MY CATSTER BACK!!!!!!!!!! Plus I am getting sick of seeing farmville on the screen all of the time, I have given up on the hope that one of the chickens will jump out so I can eat it. Normy hugs to all!

More of my friends have left Catster and this time it is not because of anything Catster did. It is because someone here was unkind to them. I know everyone here is worried about the future of Catster, it is not like it used to be here, some of the magic is gone, but it is not necessary or nice to take out your frustrations on other members. We have to stick together.
Please everyone try to be nice to each other, we can't afford to lose more friends here, they are our only reason for staying. I challenge you all to stop by one friends page today and leave a kind message or a comment on a picture or diary, let them know you treasure their friendship.
We are trying to ignore the stuff we are not happy with. We recently cancelled our newsletter subscription here, we no longer visit the "Catster" homepage, we stay within the safety of the community. We are hanging on to the good parts of Catster. There is still a lot to like here.
Besides it does no good to complain or leave comments on stories you don't like, it only adds "hits" to them which negative or not benefits them, best to just ignore them.

My sisfur Einstein, will be going to the bridge today about noon. She is worse and meowmy cannot let her suffer when she has no chance of getting better. Please send a few prayers our way, it is a very sad day at my house.
