We had company yesterday. As you know, my brofur Hooch has been sick since February 18, when he was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, with suspected other ailments. His best day since being diagnosed was Friday, March 6th. So, my meowmy decided that it would be fine for Auntie Barbi and Unkie Rob (Angel Picasso's pawrents) to spend Saturday night with us. Before Hooch got sick, they had plans to either meet at I-95 and I-26 and have dinner - then Hooch got sick and they decided to meet in Columbia, SC IF Hooch was well enough for my meowmy to feel comfortable leaving him for about 5 hours - then, when Hooch did better on Friday, they decided on Friday evening that it would be okay for Auntie Barbi and Unkie Rob to come stay the night with us on Saturday night and have a nice visit!
My meowmy got up Saturday morning and washed the clean sheets... you heard me right... she washed clean sheets because she wanted them to be really fresh. Then she made the bed up. She is also kitty sitting and she had to go get the instructions on how to manage the alarm system in the home where she is kitty sitting. Then she came home and had to clean all our 12 litter boxes... a daily ritual because we expect to use only clean litter boxes! Then she scrubbed out the bathroom upstairs and went to the grocery store to pick up a few items and when she got home Auntie Barbi and Unkie Rob were here. They sat around a chatted for a while and then decided they were hungry... so they went to a local Italian restaurant and had a nice dinner. After that, they all went to feed the kitties that my meowmy is watching for a week.
When they came back from dinner, Auntie Barbi brought a package and we opened it. Guess what? Inside was a cool Kitty Tumbler and crinkle pad that will attach to a Cat Cube. Karisma hogged it immediately. And Auntie Barbi gave my meowmy a lovely soy candle that has the Sheer White Cotton fragrance. It smells so nice.
Now, Hooch was aware there was a strange man in our home. When it was time for bed, you won't believe what Hooch decided to do! He hissed at Unkie Rob. My meowmy was surprised at his behavior and so was my dad. Normally, he just stays out of sight if he is uncomfortable. Well, while I don't like to be picked up, I do come out and say "hello" to visitors. I will waddle in and out and check out the new faces.
Then, this morning, they got up and had some coffee and went out to breakfast. When they got back, Auntie Barbi and Unkie Rob had to get on the road heading back to New Jersey. Hooch was well-behaved with Unkie Rob today BUT when my dad came in after saying good-bye to them, silly ol' Hooch hissed at him. He must have lost his kitty head for a moment. Hooch has not effur done this before. And I KNOW better!

Today, my special brofur Hooch is a DDP. I want to let him know how proud I am of him. And I would like to ask you to say a few purrs for him. He has been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism but is having a bad time. They are looking for some secondary issues and we are purring that those issues will be easily resolved and nothing too serious. So, Hooch could use surely use some purrs.
Please remember to continue purring for our sweet furiend Sammy.

*runs in* I am a DDP today. Yippee. Thank you to Catster HQ and the Diary Gal. This is so much fun. I am the shy one in my furmily and rarely get noticed... anywhere. I like to melt into the floor if noticed. You should see me at the doc doc. I melt into the examining table or floor. They laugh at my antics to disappear. They have to pry me up. Anyway, I am furry excited to have this diary honor and to share it with a pawsome furiend and Patchez' sisfur-in-law Odie who has recently been diagnosed with stones and is helping to share information about this problem. Go read Odie's diary for more information regarding this condition. Concats to Odie! I am proud to share this honor with you! And furrs, Odie was recently the DOTD! She is doing a great job of writing.
Sammy has a new update in his diary. He is off oxygen but sweet Sammy is NOT out of the woods yet. WE are purring for this sweet and special boy as hard as we can. We did not talk with his meowmy Lauren yesterday and are anxious for a verbal update but reading his diary helped us smile a little this morning. Please pray for our furiend.

Jaffa, Lulu and Rustle sent me a beautifur furever yellow star. They said, "Congrats pretty girl, You deserve some time in the limelight, you're too cute to keep such a low profile! We're still purring for your brofur Hooch and dear friend Sammy and for your worrying. big love The YPs Jaffa,Lulu & RustyXXX & MumX" I really thank them for purring for my brofur and for my furiend Sammy.

Sammy was re-hospitalized last night. He collapsed on his side gasping for air with his neck extended, stopped breathing after choking on fluid and throwing up twice in a row. His meowmy was talking to Picasso's meowmy at the time. Sammy's meowmy dropped the phone and rushed him to the Emergency Pet Hospital, trying to get him there before his heart failed. When she arrived at the hospital, he was breathing very heavily and his mouth was open with his little tongue out. His chest congestion made it difficult for him to breathe. He was re-admitted to the hospital immediately and they put him back in the oxygen chamber and did another X-ray and gave him an injection to help clear the congestion from his chest and lungs. He will have more blood work done. His meowmy will find out this morning what to do next with her baby boy. PLEASE pray for Sammy to respond positively to the medicine and return to a more normal life again. Our purrs are with Sammy and his meowmy.
Picasso's meowmy called me as soon as Sammy's meowmy told her he had collapsed and we worried and purred for Sammy and his meowmy. When Sammy's meowmy called back to tell Picasso's meowmy that Sammy was in oxygen and would be staying at the hospital, we felt a little relief. We were both so scared when Sammy collapsed. Our hearts are heavy right now but we are hopeful and praying Sammy will respond in a positive manner to his treatment.

The saddest of purrs goes out today for Simon. Simon's meowmy had to help him cross to the Rainbow Bridge about midnight. He was one of our first heroes on Catster. Simon came through several times and beat the odds but his body was tired and his precious meowmy Ali loved him enough to release him from his earthly battle and pain. Fly high Simon! We will look to the stars and sky to see you fly by as you do Bridge duties now. Godspeed, brave Simon. We will miss you. Simon, I hope you know that you were one of our first heroes on Catster.
My handsome Rushy sent me a dozen red rosest. He said, "Happy Valentines Day to my sweet Cassidy! I will love and cherish you Furever! *Loves & Kisses* ~Rushy" I love you, Rushy. All my kisses to you only.
Hambone and doggie Lucy and angel doggie Miss Madhi sent me a Big Valentine's Hugz from Hambone, Lucy and Miss Madhi" How sweet!

Since January 22nd, our meowmy and dad have been gone from morning until late at night. My meowmy and dad have been moving my dad's unmarried 84 year old aunt into an assisted living facility. She had a FULL 2 bedroom apartment (she is a serious packrat) and Aunt Maggie has been in a rehab facility off and on for the past 6 months as a result of several operations and illnesses during the past 6 months... Since the 22nd when Aunt Maggie signed the papers to move, my meowmy has fallen so far behind that it is NOT funny. Meowmy says reducing all that "stuff" to 1 small room is awful. Most nights my pawrents have not gotten home until almost midnight! My pawrents are truly exhausted. My human aunt needed to be out of her apartment by the 1st but the apartment complex has been kind and will allow my pawrents a few extra days to totally clear it. And, they have had help with this move only periodically for a day or two at a time. Otherwise, it has just been them. It was a monumental undertaking. So, my manners seem to have gone out the door. I have been late in thanking my furiends for gifts and pmails and hope that I have not missed telling my furiends thank you! If I missed anyfur with thanks, please advise me. It is a true oversight and most unintentional.
