Yesterday was my 13th birthday. My meowmy was so busy that she did not do anything for me. *makes a sad face* I received lovely gifties, messages and a purrty birthday picture from Tundra. Thank you to those who celebrated my birthday so beautifully.

OMC! I am one of today's DDP honorees. It has been over a year since I was chosen. Thank you to Catster HQ and to the Diary Gal. I think they felt sorry for me because my meowmy almost forgot my birthday. *shakes head*
I am most honored to once again be among the diary honorees. Whoopee!

Holy Kitty Kats! Meowmy did it again. She ALMOST forgot my birthday today and she forgot that today is my sisfur Princess' birthday, too. She claims she has had too much on her mind of late.. but can't she read the calendar? Pffffffttttt....
Meowmy has been anxiously awaiting a call about Prince from the oncologist that our doc doc contacted after the lymphoma diagnosis we received on him on Monday. I think she is getting "ditzy" in her aging process. Then, on top of that, my dad called to tell Meowmy that his mother had a visit with the human doc doc and that she needed to be there. You see, my dad is on a trip to Arizona to see my human sisfur and my human nephew and then to join up with his work furiends to tour the Grand Canyon and Red Rocks and other Arizona sites. Meowmy was still in her pajamas when my dad called and had less than a half hour to get dressed and meet Grandma's transport bus at the doc's. Meowmy was NOT a happy camper with the short notice. Dad is furgetful... but he has always been furgetful... Meowmy says her brain it overloaded. Hmmmmppptttttt.....
I want to thank Teddy and the Kit Kat Club for my birthday greetings, Mr. Sam for my beautifur rose and birthday message and Samoa for my lucky lady bug and birthday greetings. You are all so nice to remember me on my birthday.

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.

My 11th birthday was yesterday. Meowmy was in the process of making a birthday page for my sisfur Princess and me. Well, she just finished with Princess' page when the doorbell rang. It was my human brofur who had arrived to help move our big mountain of mulch that has been in the front yard for several years. My dad has not been able to move it so Meowmy said that you accept help whenever it comes. So, she stopped the catputer work and went outside to help. Pfffffftttttt.
About 11, the phone rang and it was the home where my human grandma is and they wanted to know if she was moving away. Well DUH. As soon as possible. Then we found out that the doctor had signed the papers to move her on Friday (May 13th). No one at that facility knew until the nurse came in on Monday. It will be so nice to get her into a new facility. So, my pawrents and brofur had to stop the work on the yard to go take care of things at both nursing facilities for my grandma.
All is well and done and transportation was set for 11:30 this morning so Meowmy told me she would help me recognize my sweet furiends who helped me celebrate my birthday later today. Thank you in advance for helping me celebrate.

Yesterday was a very sad day, indeed, for my furmily and me and for so many Catster furiends. We were shocked and saddened to learn that our beloved furiend Hazel Lucy was to go to Heaven at 12:30 PM EST. Our meowmy had come home from getting her hair cut about 11:30 and turned on the catputer to see what was happening. She went to FB first and saw the posting about Hazel Lucy. The next hour we all spent our time crying and praying for Hazel Lucy and her wonderful meowmy Julie.
Hazel Lucy and her meowmy were and are such beautiful and caring souls who started the wonderful Purr Threads on Catster. Hazel Lucy touched all of our hearts in such a special way and she will always hold a very special place in our hearts and in the hearts of so many others. True love never dies and we do truly love Hazel Lucy and thank her for being a most special part of our lives.
Please keep Hazel Lucy and her meowmy Julie in your purrs and prayers during this sad and difficult time. We know that it is never easy to say our earthly goodbyes. We know that our lives will be reunited again one day and that, while absent from the earth, they are always present in our hearts.
We wanted to write yesterday but our meowmy just could not gather herself to help us. Hazel Lucy and Julie hold a very special place in our hearts and we found ourselves too devastated to write.
We still find ourselves shocked and deeply saddened but we know that Hazel Lucy is free of her earthly pain and is healthy again and is now happily reunited with her beloved furhusband Buddie. What a special reunion that was.
Hazel Lucy, we will forever love you and are so blessed to call you our furiend. Our meowmy is blessed, also, to call your meowmy a special friend. You are both dearly loved.

Well, Meowmy did not allow me to check my page again yesterday. She got busy with things around the house and HER Facebook. Hey, what about ME? Hmmm, I need to discuss my meowmy's priorities at length with her. More on that later, IF she doesn't shape up!
Yesterday I received some sweet rosies and gifties and some nice pmails.
A sweet fellow diary honoree Presley sent me a four leaf clover. She said, "Congrats Baby G on being a DDP, this is so pawsome we get this special honor together, you have a pawsome day and enjoy every minute in the Spotlight, Hugs Presley ~"
The handsome Clyde sent me a beautifur heart. He said, "OMC! You're a DDP, concatulations Baby G!! Too bad mum hasn't painted you yet, but don't worry, it's coming, mol. I hope you get lots of treats and kisses today sweet girl! Love, Clydey xxx" I can't wait to see my portrait whenever Auntie Jill gets the time to do mine. I know it will be purrfect.
Eddy and her sweet furmily sent me a beautifur heart. They said, "Comgrat's BabyG on being a DDP! have a great and fun day! Love, Eddy & Family"
Sweet Teebo and his pawsome furmily sent me champagne glasses just filled with catnip champagne. They said, "Concats on being a DDP today sweet friend! Hopefully you get the rain you need. If you would like we can send you some of our snow!! Purrs, Teebo, Callie and Rose"
Patches Bush and the Bush Furs sent me a lepruchan hat. They said, "CONGRATULATIONS BABY G on being a DDP! Have a super day Sweetie. Hugs, The Bush Furs
The adorable Tate McCuppycakes *giggles at his cute Irish name* sent me a beautifur Mardi Gras mask. He said, "Congrats Callista on being chosen for DDp of the day! YOu get to share it with my girlfriends sister Presley too! Hope you have a great day. Love, Tate"
My most handsome brofur-in-law Moozer and his sweet furmily sent me a beautiful trophy cup. They said, "Baby G~~~ Our Mom was talking to your meowmy today and she said nothing about your honor! ConCATS to you, Baby G. Love you and your whole furmily. Moozer + The Archangel Crew" Now, Moozer, you know that my meowmy is that way. She is so silly sometimes. I purrsonally think she should have plastered it all over Catster and Facebook but.... *shakes head*
A special Angel named Shelby sent me a furever diamond. He said, "Just stopped by to wish you well my Dear."
Sweet Angel Navin R. Johnson-Davis sent me a beautifur rainbow rosette. He said, "Congratulations on your DDP Baby G! I am so glad to read that your test results were positive...this is wonderful. I am very sorry to hear about your friend Caesar. Purrs to you Baby G & to Caesar's family. All my love, Navin R. Johnson-Davis"
I got nice pmails from Chef Rooster and Clowder and Squirrel and Kitcat.
Patches made a purrty DDP memento picture for me and sent a nice pmail saying,
"Concats on your DDP! I made a pic for you and put it up on the Calico and Tortie Darling page:
Just scroll to the bottom and you will see it- right-click on it to save it. Have a pawsome day, my furiend! Love and purrs to you!"
Angel Buddie and his precious furmily sent me a lovely note which said,
"ANOTHER DIARY PICK!! ANOTHER DIARY PICK!!
CONGRATS TO YOU, OUR SWEET AND BEAUTIFUL
GET LOTS OF EXTRA PETS AND LOVE
FOR YOUR SPECIAL DAY!! WE LOVE
YOU AND WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!!
GIBBS AND CASH
AND ANGELS BUDDIE, MCKENNA,
MOOKIE, ANGEL AND RICKI"
Thanks to all my furiends for the sweet comments on my page for my diary honor, too.
Many thanks to my precious furiends who helped me celebrate my diary honor. I love all of you.

Some cat please pinch me. Ouch and thanks. Yep, I am awake. I can't believe my kitty eyes. I am a DDP today again. I am so happy. Thank you to Catster HQ and to the Diary Gal. Today I celebrate this honor with some sweet and precious furiends. Other DDP honorees and furiends are Francis, who just happens to also be the COTD (and yesterday he turned 5 years old), the adorable Hazel Lucy, who could use our purrs and prayers and love, and the cutest Presley. The DOTD was Alfie. Alfie is an angel now. He would have been 4 years old on March 6th. My concats to each one of my fellow honorees and furiends.
Meowmy says that today will be a good day for us because I am a DDP and we are supposed to get some furry needed rain. Humans are funny creatures. They fuss about rain, they want rain, they just can't be pleased. Meowmy says we are in a drought already. What's a drought? All I know is that Meowmy is happy about the anticipated rain.

Meowmy finally got my lab report on Saturday. It was hard for Meowmy and Dr. Booker to catch up with each other on Friday. Meowmy said they played telephone tag. You see, Meowmy went to a Spring Show in our area with her furiend and was gone most of the day. Meowmy had left word with Dr. Booker's staff that she would be at the show and that phone service is not great in that facility. She told them that she would call Dr. Booker when she got home. When Meowmy called (about 4PM), Dr. Booker was with a patient and was to call Meowmy back. Meowmy said she did not hear the cell phone ring when Dr. Booker called her back so Meowmy missed it. Meowmy waited until about 10AM on Saturday morning and decided to call Dr. Booker. Dr. Booker got on the phone and asked Meowmy if she had gotten the message that she had left. Meowmy told her she had not and Dr. Booker told Meowmy that what she said was for her (Meowmy) to call her back when she got the message. That did not happen... MOL.
Anyway, the news was good on my pancreatitis. The level was 2.5, which is well within the normal range now. Dr. Booker was so pleased that she told Meowmy to give me Denamarin effury other day and to continue giving me the prednisilone effury other day. So, all was good. Dr. Booker told Meowmy to watch me, of course, and to give me the appetite stimulant when I need it.
My meowmy got some sad news on Saturday at dinner. She learned that Caesar/Tango/Jake had passed away suddenly as a result of cardiac arrest after having surgery to correct a urinary blockage. Tango, as we knew him, lived with us for four months while awaiting his furever home with my Aunt Barbara. He was only 5 or 6 (we aren't sure of his exact birth, other than he was born in early 2005). Caesar was not on Catster but we just have to let our furiends know that we lost a very beloved family member. We love you, Caesar!

Just when you relax and think you can trust your pawrents, one of them proves you wrong. Today, it was Meowmy.
It was time for my regular monthly B12 injection but I had forgotten about that. Yesterday, both Mojo and I threw up fluid in the early AM. Meowmy sleeps with us effury single night so she can keep up with things like that. I did not have any more issues with the throwing up of fluid yesterday but Mojo did. However, I have had a few issues, days apart over the past week or so. My appetite had dwindled down so Meowmy gave me an appetite stimulant (1/8 Mirtazapine) on Monday to help my appetite and it did help. I guess I should have seen it coming but I did not.
This morning a little before 9AM EST, I noticed Meowmy getting dresses. Sometimes she waits until after she has breakfast to dress. That should have been a clue but I am a trusting type so I figured it was because it has gotten a little cooler again. Wrong. Meowmy came to catputer room and the bed where I was resting and picked me up. She shut the door behind her as she left and I wondered what she was doing. Then she took me into the front hallway and I saw the prison carrier. I struggled but to no avail. The next thing I knew I was shoved into it and I let out a wail to warn all my siblings. Unfortunately, poor Mojo was still shut in the catputer room.
You guessed it, Meowmy went after poor Mojo and captured her. Off we headed to the doc doc's office. NO! I do not want to go. What good does just saying NO do for us. Our pawrents do NOT listen to us.
We went in the doc doc's waiting room and I was immediately weighed. I was 10.2 so I have stayed purrty stable in my weight to the delight of my doc doc.
We went into the examining room and they carted poor Mojo off to the back to see those dreaded VAMPIRES. Whew! Maybe they won't notice me. Dr. Booker looked over me and gave me my monthly B12 shot and I thought, for a brief moment, that I had escaped the vampires. I was WRONG. Soon,I found myself heading down the hall with Sandy to THAT room and THOSE vampires. They were just finishing taking poor Mojo's blood. I knew they wanted mine. Those vampires are just obsessed with our blood. Why?
After they took my blood, they returned me to the examining room with Mojo and Meowmy. I was put in the prison carrier and was just relaxing when Robin came in with a syringe looking thing in her hand. She opened MY door and I ran to the back of the carrier. She had the nerve to grab me and pull me toward the front of the carrier. Then she did it. She tried to drown me. She shoved all that fluid (Bordetella feline intranasal) in the syringe down my nose. How could she do that to me? How rude. I will remember that one day.
Dr. Booker told my meowmy that she would call tomorrow with my fPL (pancreatitis) results.
So, at last, we were ready to head home. I was the last to be released from the prison carrier. Finally, Mojo and I can relax and take naps. I may need a little bite to eat to tide me over, however. That appetite stimulant does work.
