A late diary entry.

It has been a while since my last entry. We have been running behind for most of the year of 2009. The holidays pushed us even farther behind and other issues have come up that have caused us to fall even more behind IF that is possible. So far, 2010 is looking a little suspicious, too. My sisfur Baby G was found to have a lump between her shoulder blades on the 18th of this month. It had to be surgically removed and then biopsied. Thank goodness it was benign. It was a reaction to an antibiotic injection (she got on December 22nd) called a postinjection panniculitis. That sounds really disgusting to me.

On the 25th, my handsome Jarvis sent me a Happy 2010 Everypaw!!. He said, "Happy late New Year Sweetie! Meowmy has been distracted & not been giving me my catputer time, sheesh! Tux keeps telling married life is wonderpur & I'm thinking maybe we should high tail out of town & get married. What do you think? Luv, Jarvis" *eyes open wide* Oh, get married... that sounds lovely!!! My prince has arrived!

 

I am running behind in my diary and thanks just like the- rest of my furmily.

On the 30th of December, I got some wonderpurr news from Jarvis and his pawsome furmily. They sent me a blue cupcake. They said, "Time to celebrate, Daddy got a job! The owner of the glass company hired him on the spot & is even paying him a little more money than his previous job, he starts work on Jan. 18, 2010. What a way to ring in the new year! Love, Jarvis, Tux, Cleo" Yay! I am so happy that Jarvis' daddy found a job. *does the happy dance*

On December 31st, my sisfur Clawdette and her handsome Tux eloped to Mexico. They were wed in a beautifur sunset beach ceremony. I want to concatulate my sweet sisfur and to welcome Tux into our furmily.

Yesterday, Serafina Tilly and Mafia Princess sent my furmily and me a purrty heart. They said, "We haven't been on much since mom got pregnant, but we wanted to say we love our friends!!! Love to all!!"

I need to update on my human brofur Jim. He had a CT scan recently... before he went back to the lung specialist on December 23rd. Jim got both good and "iffy" news about his condition. The GOOD news is that the lungs are clear of the fungus! The "iffy" news is that he DOES have some scarring. We don't really know what that means for Jim down the road. His treatment with the antifungal will go on for another 6 or so months as the bone involvement takes much longer to cure. So, he is to return for another report on his progress with the fungus attacking his bones. He is still short winded but that may be the result of the scarring. The OTHER issue they found was that Jim has kidney stones waiting to "surprise" him and a cyst on his kidney that must be watched. Given the prognosis a few months back of terminal cancer, we are so very thankful and grateful to have gotten such wonderpur news about Jim. Thank you to effuryone who has prayed for my human brofur. Please continue to remember him in those purrs and prayers... but know he has come a long way into becoming more healthy.

 

A sweet thank you from my Jarvis.

My sweet Jarvis and his pawsome furmily sent me a yummy cup of Hot Cocoa. They said, "Thank you all so much for our wonderpur gifts! You really shouldn't have, we have to apologize our meowmy couldn't manage gifts this year. But know that we send all our love and many hugs and kisses! Love, Jarvis, Tux & Cleo"

 

Late thank-yous and Christmas greetings.

Hooch has written in his diary about why we have been so quiet and I am borrowing some of his diary to start mine off. Meowmy says we have never been so far behind in our lives. We are hoping to get back to normal in 2010.

Our Christmas Day was furry full. Meowmy started the morning off with serving the delicious French Toast casserole to my brofur Jim and his girlfuriend Donna and to Jim's son Jimmy and his beautifur bride of two years... Amy. They had some very nice fellowship and a relaxed family moment before the "frenzy" began. After they had breakfast, Jimmy and Amy went home to prepare for the family Christmas gathering. Jim, Donna, my day and meowmy began preparing the delicious smelling food to take to Jimmy's. They baked ham and a turkey and would you believe that NONE of them would give us a bite. How rude. It smelled so delicious. Jim helped Meowmy and made the deviled egges. Meowmy says she doesn't know what he did but they were some of the best she has effur eaten. Meowmy put the potato salad together. Effurything smelled wonderpurr.

It was a VERY rainy day. Actually miserable, according to my meowmy. When they got ready to head out to Jimmy's, they had to put plastic over all the pawresents and food. They had the car totally packed to the brim. My pawrents did not get home until night and Jim helped my meowmy get her router hooked back up so that they can use all the catputers... my dad has a dinosaur and slow one and Meowmy had a laptop, in addition to the main catputer. It seems that when our DSL went out.... I don't know what DSL is and Meowmy WON'T tell me... she always spells it. How rude! Anyway, when the DSL guy fixed our phone and DSL lines, Meowmy thought that maybe her router was still working but the ol' gal did not know how to get it back up and running. Thank goodness for her catputer guru son Jim.

Speaking of Jim, I want to give a praise report on him. He had a CT scan recently... before he went back to the lung specialist. His appointment with the lung specialist was on December 23rd. Jim got both good and "iffy" news about his condition. The GOOD news is that the lungs are clear of the fungus! The "iffy" news is that he DOES have some scaring. We don't really know what that means for Jim down the road. His treatment with the antifungal will go on for another 6 or so months as the bone involvement takes much longer to cure. So, he is to return for another report on his progress with the fungus attacking his bones. He is still short winded but that may be the result of the scaring. The OTHER issue they found was that Jim has kidney stones waiting to "surprise" him and a cyst on his kidney that must be watched. Given the prognosis a few months back of terminal cancer, we are so very thankful and grateful to have gotten such wonderpur news about Jim. Thank you to effuryone who has prayed for my human brofur. Please continue to remember him in those purrs and prayers... but know he has come a long way into becoming more healthy.

My meowmy says she wants to apologize to effuryone who we have not contacted this Christmas season. She has been overwhelmed this whole year. In addition to the 12 of us kitties and 2 doggies, Meowmy has 5 grown children and 14 grandchildren. This keeps her time furry busy and shopping for the crew this year was really a job. We did not even decorate our home until a few days before Christmas and that was only minimal this year. We did not end up putting up a tree. Meowmy says she thinks it upset the whole furmily but next year she will do better.

Today, we got to open a package from Auntie Barbi, Cocoa and all the kitties. They gave us two bags full of mice, balls and catnip toys, Pounce treats, a stocking with Karisma's daddy Monte's picture inserted in it and a reindeer teaser. I can see Meowmy having fun with us on with it. Meowmy got a beautifur silver plated Christmas ornament from Auntie Barbi. It is a cute cat peeking out of a watering can. You can put a picture of one of us inside it. I wonder who will be chosen to go in the ornament?

I got behind, like Hooch, on my thank-yous for rosettes.

On the 15th, my sweet Jarvis sent me a big piece of Mistletoe. He said, "Meowy Christmas, sweatheart! I'm sending lots of kitty kisses your way! I hope you have a wonderpurr holiday filled with all the things you love. I hear Tux may be whisking Clawdette off to get married...hmmmm. Love, Jarvis"

On the 23rd, my sweet future sisfur-in-law Calamity and her precious furmily sent me a Christmas stocking. They said, "We wish you all a VERY Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday season with all our love and best wishes fur a PAWSOME NEW YEAR!!!! Calamity, Henry, Calia, Romeo and Kana"

I hope that all my special furiends and loved ones had a pawsome Christmas Day and will be blessed in 2010. Wishing all of you a Happy New Year!

 

We are miffed.

Well, I must tell you that all of us kits are MIFFED with our meowmy. She has been too busy to let us attend our diaries and pmails. Can you believe the nerve of her? She has been involved in stripping wallpaper. Then, she had to wash off the old glue and prepare the wall. There were cracks to patch, holes where pictures were hanging to fill, then sanding the wall to make it smooth enough to paint. Then came the painting. Meowmy did manage to grab some time online to tend the farms, hunt Hatchlings, decorate her Yo home and take care of her cat "Cuddles" on Pet Society. I KNOW... none of those are REAL... HELLO, are we chopped liver? Well, now we know where we stand in her world! Pfffffffttttt.

On the 22nd, my cute little sisfur Karisma married the most handsome Mr. Lollycat McNoNo. Their wedding was beautifur, in spite of all the last minute glitches.

The day before Thanksgiving, Hooch had to go back to the doc doc to be checked and that took a long time because they did blood work. At least, he didn't get a big bald spot this time. Meowmy asked them to only make a small place... so, you really don't notice it.

Then she and my dad were preparing the Thanksgiving food for most of the week of Thanksgiving. That really took most of their time... they shopped for the food, prepared it to be cooked and then had to do the cooking. We had a CROWD for Thanksgiving. There were 18 strangers in our home. Yikes.... we hid... actually, Meowmy locked us in different rooms to keep those strangers away from all of us.

The day after Thanksgiving, my pawrents left early in the morning and went to one of the local malls in that madness called Black Friday. The crowds were out and about. They did NOT go to shop but to meet up with a dear furiend and his furmily who had driven down from High Point for the day. When I say the day, I mean the day. It was dark when my pawrents returned home and our dinner was LATE. This is not cool.

On Saturday, my pawrents left in the morning to go to the NC mountains (Saluda) for the day to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary of a family member. AGAIN, my pawrents were gone all day long and it was really LATE when they returned... well past dinner. Meowmy was even late by almost an hour giving Hooch his insulin. Even she was NOT a happy camper about that.

On Sunday, my pawrents went to the same mall to meet up with three of my dad's cousins who had driven in for the anniversary pawty. So, they spent another day at the mall and got home at dinner time.

Yesterday, Meowmy spent the day playing catch up with too many things and guess what? She did NOT get caught up. But Hooch made her promise to attend to our needs first this morning... so she is attempting to do just that.

It will take us a while to get over our neglect! Pffffftttt!

 

I got another giftie from sweet Angel Zack and his furmily.

This morning when I woke up, my meowmy let me see my page. I had received a special greeting from a precious furiend. Angel Zack and his pawsome furmily sent me a blooming Sunflower. They said, "Hello sweetie, we got here late tonight, but wanted you to know we are happy that you got to be a DP today! Congrats! Purrs, TWB"

My meowmy told all of us that she had to help us get caught up on our diaries and thank yous today. So much has been going on and finding the proper time to do what WE need has not happened for us lately. We all wish to apologize for getting so far behind. Meowmy hopes to help us get caught up and hopes we will never fall this far behind again. Thank you to all of my furiends and to those of my siblings for always being so kind to us.

9:18 PM EST ~

Chef Rooster and Clower (his furmily) sent me a Blooming Sunflower. They said, "Concats DDP! Hope your day was pawsome! Purrs and love Chef Rooster and Clowder"

What a great day! I woke up to find that I had been chosen as one of today's DDP's. What a pleasant surprise. Thank you Catster HQ and Diary Gal. I would have written sooner but my pawrents had an early morning appointment and did not return home until tonight. Then my meowmy had to take care of things around the house and give meds out to Hooch and Patchez and then HER program came on TV. Do you believe that she put ME on a back burner on my diary honor day? Well, pfffffttttt.

I received two lovely pictures that I have posted on my page. One was from Daisy Glass and the other was from Kibbles, Frances and Yoda. Many, many thanks to both for my beautifur pictures.

Tate and Tonka sent me a purrty heart. They said, "Hey cute lil Sunflower, Congrats on being DDP of the day! We love your Halloween costume, it makes you look even cuter Love, Tate and Tonka"

Binx sent me a cool Fall Maple Leaf. He said, "Concatulations on being the DDP! We orange dudes are the best!"

Cocoa and his pawsome furmily sent me a cool acorn. They said, "Dear Sunflower~ Catgrats on being chosen today's DDP and we hope that you have a pawsome day. celebrating! Love~ Cocoa & Co, xoxo" Please remember Cocoa in your purrs as he has not been well lately.

 

A Halloween greeting from Ozzy and Harriet. Yay.

We lost a dear friend named Calvin today. Our hearts are breaking right now. We know that Calvin is watching over all of his family and furiends now from the Bridge. Calvin touched so many hearts with his love and humor. We will miss you Calvin and will look to the heavens now for your beautifur orange face and wisdom. You took a piece of our hearts with you, dear furiend. We will forever love you. We send our love and pray for the comfort of your family in this time of such loss.

My sweet Jarvis and his furmily sent me a Blue Frosted Cupcake. They said, "We have great news! Our long lost cousin Milo has come home! Milo belongs to our Aunt Jami & he disappeared in June. He was found last week hanging out at a fish hatchery, skinny but okay. He is home now & very happy! Love, Jarvis, Tux, & Cleo" We are so happy that Milo has come home. Yay!
