Meowmy wanted me to let you know that she still just can't face helping me with my diary nor writing about my life. She promised me very soon that she will help me. I just wanted to thank each of you for the outpouring of love, kind words and the special gifties on my page. Thanks to all my furiends who made special pictures for me and to Auntie Patricia for my moving wings pictures.
A week ago, at 6:36PM, I made my journey to the Bridge after my long fight with illnesses. My specialist said that ironically, what I had so bravely battled for 4 years was not what finally took me away from my earthly life.
Just give Meowmy a little more time to help me and to write her own words.
I love all of you and thank you for all the loving support and constant prayers and purrs.

My meowmy is not yet ready to help me write a diary about my journey to the Bridge but I wanted to let my special furiends know that I made that dreaded journey on March 11, 2013. When Meowmy is ready, she will help me write more. Thank you all for the lovely gifties on my page in honor of my journey. I will miss each of you. Much love, Angel Hooch

I can't believe it. I went to my page and found so many beautiful gifts for my 14th birthday. Thank you to all my dear and special furiends for thinking of me on this special day in my life. I am so blessed by precious furiends.
An update on my health... I am doing pretty well these days. For the first time in three years, I have been given 2 months between my vet visits, providing I continue to do well. I am coping well with my total blindness but I know it hurts my meowmy. I am okay with my new issues, however. My specialist is hoping that I can continue to do well with the medications I am currently taking and the doses can remain as they are. Thank you for all the prayers and love over these past 3 1/2 years of my health issues. Meowmy thought I was leaving her more than once during this time.
Thank you to Rory and furmily for my birthday picture.
I love all of you. Thanks for all the prayers and love. Please keep those prayers coming. Meowmy feels they have kept me with her for this time of my illnesses. She does know I will never be truly "well" but she loves every good day that blesses us.

A belated THANK YOU to Catster HQ and the Diary Gal for picking me as one of the DDP honorees for May 8th. To be honest, we missed my honor but received two photo mementos from 2 furry nice furiends - Rory, Tundra, Manytoes & Lynzee and Big Harry. I will add those photo mementos to my page as soon as Catster will let me. I tried but for some annoying reason they won't load. Maybe Catster has fleas again? Thank you to both furiends for the lovely picture mementos... they are especially meaningful since we totally missed my honor. You see, my meowmy got some bad news on Prince and had to take him in for more blood work and we never checked Catster. I also received two lovely gifties and nice messages. I got a lucky ladybug from Tyson and a red ribbon from Milo, Mallee, San, Smokey Joe, Tim 'n Zig. Thank you for the lovely gifties.
I had nice concats messages from Angel Buddie and family and from Smiley Cassanova. Thank you for those messages.
I received a beautiful forever from the lovely Angel Amelia on May 3 for my honor of being Furt of the Month for May. Angel Amelia was chosen as the Angel Furt of the Month for May. My big CONCATS to Angel Amelia and my thanks for the lovely . It is an honor to be Furt of the Month of May with such a special Angel.

I received a lovely note from PixieBelle on April 25th informing me of the following.
Hey there Hooch-man!
I am delighted to tell you that you have been selected as our next Olde Furt of the Month, for May 2012.
There are a couple of things we admins would like to do to celebrate all things Hooch. The first is a short interview. The questions are below, and if you could please return your answers to me by the night of April 30, I will publish them in the Furt of the Month thread. (If there are any you don't want to answer, just write N/A and I'll delete them from the transcribed interview.)
We also would like to upload your main picture to the Olde Furts main page, if you don't mind. Please let me know about that, and make sure if your photos are locked that you unlock them the night of April 30.
Lastly, there is a Furt of the Month badge in the Olde Furts photo section, which you can copy and upload to your page if you like.
Congratulations, and we hope you enjoy being Furt of the Month!
Happy chirps and mrrs,
Thank you to Olde Furts for this pawsome honor.
I checked the Olde Furts page and they have not yet announced it but I am beginning the celebration now!

My deepest and most sincere to each of you for the wonderful birthday gifts and messages. You helped to make my 13th birthday very special. Your furiendship is such a treasure in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Meowmy said she would help me write about my health and where we stand now in a day or so. I have had many sweet furiends write to find out about me because I have not written about what is going on with me lately. We have just had so many "irons in the fire" as Meowmy likes to say.
Yesterday was of a very mixed emotion... bittersweet type of day. While we celebrated my 13th birthday, we mourned the loss of two furiends. Our hearts go out to the families of Cocoa and CK. May the families of both new angels be comforted in knowing that the love they shared will go on forever and the pawprints their angels made in so many hearts will forever be with each of them.

Shortly before 8:30am EST, we got some very sad news. Auntie Barbi called Meowmy to tell her that our dear furiend Cocoa had crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He will always be a special part of our furmily and always in our hearts. He left some big pawprints in each of our hearts. We are all still in shock. Please remember Auntie Barbi and Unkie Rob and all the sad siblings that Cocoa has left behind to mourn and miss him. Cocoa was and is very special to my meowmy... she always loved to hear his cute little meows (sometimes very loud) as he chatted when Auntie Barbi and Meowmy were on the phone chatting. Rest in Peace, dear and special furiend. You will never be far from our hearts. We LOVE you, Cocoa.
Meowmy is so shaken, she may not get back to my birthday diary until tomorrow. She really loves Cocoa.

Meowmy is so excited because I am 13 years old today. She says it has been a furry rocky road for me for the past two and a half (almost) years but we are so furry blessed to see this pawsome day. She has promised me to help me write more in my diary later today. We shall see if she keeps that promise.
I want to thank all my furiends for all the purrs and prayers these past two plus years. Without your love, support and, most of all, purrs and prayers, I know that I would not have done as well as I have. I will write more on that when Meowmy helps me a little later today.
I want to thank Teddy Bearz and his pawsome furmily for making a furry special birthday picture and sending it to me on July 25th. I put it up today for all my furiends to see and enjoy. They sent it to me in a cute birthday hat. They said, "Hi Hooch, We are giving you this early bday pressie cause we thought you may need the hat!
We love you,
TB,Milo,Ollie and the angels" Thank you so much for making my special birthday picture and for always being so loving to me.

I want to apologize for not recognizing my gifties but, for some strange reason, I can't open the rosies. Meowmy has used IE, Chrome and Firefox to no avail. I can see rosies on other furs pages. Thank you to all who helped me celebrate my DDP honor on the 20th. I do hope to be able to see my rosies. I actually got to see the first few but then NOTHING. I can only see the names of the furs who gifted me.
I do have a report on me from yesterday. I had a very bad start to my morning. When I got up, Meowmy stated that I did not act like myself. I showed mild interest in eating but enough to get my insulin shot at 8AM. Meowmy gave me my other meds a little later than normal because she wanted me to eat some more. I did but just picky. A short time after 11, I started making that awful sound that I make just before I throw up. I haven't thrown up in a long time. I could see the panic in Meowmy's eyes. I threw up six times in close succession... but I picked six new places on the carpet each time. I don't think Meowmy even cared that I was decorating her carpet. She was furry worried about me. I finally rested for a few minutes and Meowmy began to clean the carpet while watching me. She was telling me that NO way had I eaten what came back out. She was saying that it almost looked like two days worth... mostly undigested. Meowmy began to relax a little and decided to chance giving me Cerenia to help me with the throwing up. As soon as she gave it to me, I went behind the sofa. It was not long before I began to make that awful sound again. Meowmy knew what was coming. I threw up two more times behind the sofa. Meowmy was really worried at this point and she feared I had thrown up the good effects of the Cerenia. She was almost ready to take me to the ER but decided to watch me carefully.
My human brofur and his wife came over to help my dad with some yard work. Meowmy was planning to help but she stayed inside with me for a long time. I did not throw up again after the last two times. Meowmy wondered if maybe just enough Cerenia got in my system to help.
I began to beg Meowmy for food. Against her better thoughts, she relented and gave me a few morsels. I looked at her like WHAT? I wondered if I was on some weird diet. I kept that down and I persisted in begging for more. Finally, Meowmy relented and gave me 1/4 cup of my dry food. I ate about half of that and Meowmy just watched me. Effurything was okay and I kept the food down. I seemed okay for the rest of the day but I noticed that today Meowmy is keeping a close eye on me. I won't be able to seek out a hiding place for the 25th at this rate.
If any of my furiends have any suggestions about how I can view my rosies, please pmail me. This has not been a problem in the past for us.

OMC! I am a DDP honoree today. Thank you Catster HQ and Diary Gal. I am not sure how this happened because I have been rather quiet lately. I am not talking about bodily functions or other gross things that our diary selectors seem to choose. MOL.
I will give a brief report on me. I am acting okay and eating well. Meowmy says she has become a little fearful of saying good things because she said that effury time she does, I seem to take a downward spiral. She said she doesn't want to jinx me. My blood reports are NOT reflecting my actions. My fructosamine is very high and the last time the vampires stole my blood it came back with some elevated liver levels. We were hoping that the prednisilone could be further reduced and I could continue on the course I am currently on but it is looking more like I will be adding a drug that my meowmy is not happy about in the near future.
I go back to see my specialist for more blood letting on May 25th at 10 in the morning. I am currently seeking a furry good hiding place for that day but I need somefur to let me know when the 25th is because I don't know. Warn me, will you?
