I received the sweetest white ribbon rosette from an ARG today. It said, "Thinking of you today, my angel friend. We love you very much! Please post in the main forum to thank sender, under Plus Friendly. And pass the love to another angel." My meowmy and I are furry touched. We love you ARG!

And, I got another white ribbon rosette from an ARG! Thank you for remembering those of us who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge. It is nice to know that we are still loved. My meowmy tells me that I still live in her heart. I know she still misses me and I miss her.

Yesterday, I received a heart rosette from my sweet furiends Karma Kitty, Bobbi Boi, who will be 1 on July 28th and happened to be a DDP on July 23, Charlie Clarence and Punkin Pooh. They have such lovely pages and are such nice kitties. Check out their pages and add them to your corrals so you can check on them often.

My pawrents got up early (4:30 am) today to take my human sisfur to the airport to fly back to Wichita. Meowmy said it has been so much fun having her with them. My pawrents did not stop since she arrived. They celebrated lots of birthdays. It seemed that they were constantly on the go or having people over. Meowmy said it has been a furry short week with my sisfur and she wants her to come back soon for a longer visit. There just was not enough time to do effurything they wanted to do. I remember when my sisfur was born. How time flies!


A Cats Ten Commandments

Today Chantilly Lace ♥ )O( posted this on Calico & Tortie Darlings, which is one of my sisfur's groups. Thank you for the posting! My meowmy's eyes leaked furry badly!

A Pets Ten Commandments

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you will be painful.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.

4. Don’t be angry with me for long and don’t lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainments, but I have only you.

5. Talk to me. Even if I don’t understand your words, I do understand your voice.

6. Be aware that however you treat me, good or bad, I will never forget it.

7. Before you hit me, before you yell at me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet I choose not to bite you.

8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I’m not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.

9. Please take care of me when I grow old or become sick. No matter how you feel, I’ll be there for you.

10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can’t bear to watch. Don’t make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you.

I gave my meowmy almost 17 years of joy and love. She still misses me. I have been gone since 1987.

And I got a furry purrty and sweet heart rosette from Calamity on July 17th (the day my human sisfur came to visit my pawrents). Calamity said "I know you were a big part of making my birthday the most special! And..thank you for my prezzie! Hugs and kitty kisses thrown up to heaven fur you sweet girl!" She is going to make such a wonderpurr bride fur Hooch.

They said, "A beeeautiful rose for the gorgeous, sweet Miss Fire, whom we know is Always Remembered & we send mew & mewer meowunderful family many purrrayers & soft headbonks.

My furmily has a new great cat nephew!

If you remember my great cat nephew Boots who recently suffered from a big scare with kidney failure as the result of accidently ingesting some liquid from an Advil gel capsule, you will be furry pleased to know that his visit to the doc doc gave furry good news. He will be okay with care and special food.

Well, Boots and his brofur Fluff have a new kitty brofur named Simba. Simba is really not new to us as my meowmy and Boots' dad were there when Simba was rescued from the pound when he was about 6 weeks of age. My meowmy's furiend adopted Simba originally. Unfortunately, his meowmy got furry sick and had to go to a nursing home as the result of too many seizures causing health and mental issues. Her husband is much older than she is and has recently cracked his back and is not in good health and is trying to find good homes for all of Simba's other siblings. They are older cats, for the most part, and this will be a tough job. My meowmy is trying to help him find them good homes. She is furry happy that Simba will have a good home. My meowmy has always had a love for Simba. She was there when he was adopted and went when he was neutered, too. She feels like he is a part of our furmily.


Thank you to the anonymous blue ribbon rosette giver!

What a week!

For any who haven't heard, my great cat nephew Boots was playing at his home on Sunday. Sometime between 10:30 am and 8:30 pm, he found a little colorful ball that he found on the floor and he decided to play with it. What he did not know is that it was a gel Advil capsule full of what is poison to us cats. He bit into the capsule during his playful attempts with the little ball. After his pawrents got in that night, they found where some cat had thrown up in the kitchen and also upstairs in the bedroom. Since they have two cats (Boots and Fluff) they had no idea of which cat had thrown up. But his pawrents did find the partially deflated Advil gel capsule, however, so they knew what had probably caused the sickness.

His pawrents called the vet the next day. The doctor said that he was probably okay if he kept his breakfast and dinner down which he did. Now, remember that his pawrents still did not know which cat had gotten sick at this point. The vet told his pawrents to keep Boots and Fluff in different rooms for 48 hours so they both went to their appointed bathrooms. During the next 48 hours, both Boots and Fluff acted alright.

On Wednesday morning, it was discovered that it was Boots who was the sick one. He was not feeling well and was not interested in his food and had thrown up fluid. So, now they knew which cat had gotten into the Advil. His pawrents called the vet and she told them to bring him right in, which they did. After doing his blood panels, the vet found Boots was in severe kidney failure and they were given no guarantee as to whether he would pull through this illness. They started an IV and put a collar on poor Boots and were about to put the catheter and pump on him when my meowmy rushed over to see him because my pawrents had a trip they had to take. The vet let my meowmy hold Boots for a while until his pawrents could come back. While Meowmy was holding Boots, the vet said they needed to give him a shot for nausea. Boy, did he scream according to Meowmy. The vet told her it burned and was not pleasant for him. His pawrents arrived and held him for a while and then they put him in his cube so urgent treatment could begin.

When his pawrents took him in on Wednesday, his levels were my levels were at 98 but were supposed to be between 16 and 32. This was not good. Sometime during his first night at the hospital, Boots somehow managed to get his IV out... that big plastic collar did not stop him.

On Thursday morning, despite Boots efforts to get the tubes out, his levels dropped almost twenty points to 74. The vet said that was furry encouraging but would not committ as to whether he would or could make it or not. She said it would depend on his next levels which would be taken on Friday morning. They had to put the tubes back in but because his veins kept blowing out, they had to use his rear leg. So, now Boots has three shaved legs and a shaved neck.

We did not know what to expect this morning (Friday) but we knew it was critical. Imagine our surprise that Boots' levels had come down from 74 the day before to 18 (normal is between 16 and 32). His pawrents were furry nervous because the little rascal had again pulled out his IV. He IS a determined little fellow. When the vet came out and told them to "Take him home!" they could not believe their ears.

His pawrents had to go to work so they called my meowmy to see if she could pick him up and take him to his home. She did and she said he was so happy to be at his home. He and Fluff played and played and Boots was begging for food. We are all so happy he is doing well.

He will always have damaged kidneys and will be on K/D food for the rest of his life but the vet expects it to be a normal life. Boots has to go back in several weeks for another blood panel to see where his levels are then... IF he has not problems before that time. We all feel furry blessed to have Boots back with us.

We have not been in touch as often lately and they were touching base. How furry sweet of them.
