I wanted to update my diary. I try to get online, but this computer just runs too slow or my human Donald is online. I guess I will just have to become more aggressive.
I am eating my special food now. I graze and keep mommie hopping to fill my dish. Actually, she just puts a small amount in the dish, but I don't usually eat all of it, I just come back 8 to 10 times a day and mommie puts more food in the bowl. We have to do it this way, because the other cats like my food too. When I walk away they will eat what I leave. Since, this food comes from the vet's, mommie says she cannot afford to feed it to everyone. Since I was the one sick, I don't see why EVERYONE should get it anyway. (I had my bladder blocked, this food is low ash (???) and is healthier for me.) You should see Lulu, she will sit and eyeball me while I am eating. Mommie will take her into the other room, or give her a small amount in her dish, so she will quit staring at me. Then, there's Socks, he will try to push me away. Well, I don't go for that, I just hold my ground (I do it like a gentleman. I just keep on eating and ignore him.). Then Socks will eat from the bowl next to mine.
Mommie says that I have become a sweetheart, since being on my pills. I use to be very mean. I would hiss and smack the other cats and even hit mommie. I use to back up and pee on stuff all the time (the last straw was when I peed on mommie's leg after she had scolded me for hissing at one of the others). The vet said it was my attitude, so he and mommie decided to try the pills. It is very easy to swallow (only 2 times a week), mommie brags on me BIG Time, because I don't fuss. I even rub heads with the other cats now. I no longer pee where I should not. I enjoy having my head rubbed with feet and I love to knead Donald's tummy. I lay next to mommie when she is on the computer. Mommie says that I am like I use to be. I don't know why but those other cats would just get on my nerves, now it like "so what."
I have gained some weight on the new food. Mommie hopes it doesn't become a problem. That would not be good for my kidneys. I walk alot, just don't run around much. I walk quite a ways from home and walk back when mommie yells for me. (She checks on me ALL the time. She can be a worry wart sometimes.) I am jumpy now, I wasn't before. Noises bother me. The vet says it is the pills. They changed my hormones and sort of put me on edge. (He also says it makes me feel like I'm in heat---I beg to differ with him. Altho, the days are beginning to warm up here.) Mommie wonders if the pills could be causing my weight gain. She is going to talk to the vet about it.
I almost forgot, I was in a cat fight over a week ago. The stray bum went after Socks first. Mommie was so upset, she threw her flashlight at them, to get them to stop. They ran off, then Socks came back home. Donald went after the stray and heard it fighting with someone else (GUESS WHO?) but he could not find it. I came in the next morning limping. That bum bit my foot. It swelled and was very sore. Mommie called the vet and he told her what to do, then to bring me in the next day (this was Sunday). He gave me a shot and mommie gave me pink medicine for several days. I was walking better by Tuesday.
I am going for a snack. Time to get mommie up and fill my bowl. I have her trained. I even get her up during the night (I just have to pat her arm and up she comes.). Hey, I don't eat much through the day, just evening time to early morning. Gotta keep my strength up. Time to eat, then snooze. talk at you later. :) OREO
