Hello to all my furiends. I have not posted in a while as things with me have been going along purrty good. Meowmy doesn't notice any changes in my actions since I switched over to the new insulin. She told me that some days I look a little more ragged than others but my actions are fine. I am not drinking nor peeing more and this is good news. I go for my Fructosamine tomorrow and we are hoping my results say we are "on target". I did give Meowmy a little fright yesterday. I was in the family room and making THAT noise. She came running in to find me throwing up foam. I could see her distress with my latest act but I only did it once and my actions were fine the rest of the time. She is hoping I ate part of a leaf that my dad may have tracked in in his return from the grocery store and that the leaf cause my issue.
I want to take this time to wish all of my precious American Catster furiends and their furmilies a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING on Thursday. I send love to each of them and my love to all my other Catster friends scattered all over the world.
Yesterday, a lovely card and sweet fish shaped picture ornament arrived from a sweet furiend named Rusty and his furmily. Thank you for this precious gift and for your special furiendship and love.
I just learned this morning and a sweet friend named Riley is in serious need of our purrs. I haven't heard if he made it through the night but want to ask for love and purrs for him and his furmily. Riley, I love you!
Meowmy has allowed me to get behind yet again. Seriously, I need some help in hiring a new typist.
On the 12th Calamity sent me a candy corn. She said, "Heres just a preview Hoochy, I just have to put the rest of the faces on!! Don't they look yummy?"
Do be sure to check out her diary entry for the 14th to tell you about our big day.
On the 13th Chai Latte-Capone sent my furmily and me a beautifur heart. She said, "Thank you Sweet Hooch & family for the kind concats to Mom and me. It means the world to celebrate with dear friends like you. Purrs & Love, Chai"

10:30 PM EST ~
I went to the doc doc today and the vampires ARE still there! My meowmy did ask that they not shave so much of my fur off as it is finally coming back. They were furry nice and only took a little fur. Backing up, my meowmy surprised me when she picked me up to place me in the prison carrier. And she forgot to latch the door securely... so, I took that opportunity to escape and the chase was on. Unfortunately, she caught me and placed me into that horrid prison. I began to yowl and did so the whole way to the doc docs. Poor Baby G had to listen to me wail because she was going for her B12 shot.. we went a little early because the doc doc will closed from Thanksgiving Day until Monday for the holiday.
When we arrived, they took me out of the carrier and carried me back into the back of the hospital to gather my blood. We were there a long time. My doc doc said my glucose was actually low, reading only 85. She expected 185 but not 85. She said that she wanted to back off on my insulin until we heard from the fructosamine report. I was placed on 1 unit in the morning and 1 unit in the evening. Because of the holiday, my doc doc did not expect to hear from the fructosamine until Monday but guess what? They called her late in the afternoon with the report and, as my doc doc thought, my level was down. So, I started with 1 unit tonight. We will see how that goes. I am to go back to Dr. Booker on Thursday, the 3rd of December. That is my only human sisfur's birthday. Hopefully, I can give her a good report for her pawresent from me. Guess what I weighed? I was 14.7 pounds. I haven't seen this weight in a long time. My doc doc definitely does not want me to gain any more weight. I really wish these humans would make up their minds about my weight. You just can't please humans.
Tate and Tonka sent me a big power of the paw. They said, "Get well my friend, hope you feel better soon. You have the best pawrents to help you get well, hang in there. Happy Thanksgiving to you andyour family. Love, tate and Tonka"
Curly sent my furmily and me a purrty heart. He said, "Dear Hooch, Many thanks to you and your furmily for the delicious nip pie and concatulations on my COTD! I am very lucky to have good furiends like you. Love & purrs, Curly"
Kitty Pryde and his furmily sent me a cute turkey. They said, "Hope you have a furrry Happy Thanksgiving Hootch! We are so happy that you are gonna celebrate wif yr furmily and are thankful to be your furriends!"
Rusty and his furmily sent my furmily and me a Mmm Mmm MmmMmmmm! PIE!!. They said, "Thanksgiving is a time for family and friends. It's my wish that you and your family have a blessed day and good health. Rusty, Mom and everyone."

Thanks for mentioning me in your diary Hooch. I met some nice cats because of it. I am doing better, at least I'm home. I hope you continue to stay well too. It's no fun taking medicine all the time.
