It's snowing again here in Maryland.
What's wrong with this picture?
It's suppose to be Spring!
Now the Flowers are hiding under snow covered leaves and petals.
The trees are white again....and where did the green grass go?
It's all white.
It's beginning to look like Christmas again!
Is not, the Easter Bunny suppose to hop down the bunny trail soon?
If it keeps snowing he will need a sleigh too!
Oh where....Oh where is Spring?
Does anyone know??????
Is this an April fools joke or what?
Everyone be careful and have a pawsome day.

I come to you today with very sad news. Our sisfur Onyx was taken to vets this morning for what we thought was a broken leg. Only to find out it was neurlogical problems. They took a fluid sample and it was FIP! Meowmy and Grammy made the desigison to let her go to rainbow bridge. As Onyx was so ill. Grammy held her in her arms in a blanket as she slipped away. She is now at Rainbow Bridge. No more pain, or illness. She is with her sisfur Tiggy and Uncle Yoda. They will show her around. Grammy has leaky eyes sometimes and told us all Onyx is at a better place. Grammy is so thankful for a little over 2 years of happy fun filled days with Onyx. Grammy will miss Onyx and always love her as she does us. Please keep Onyx and our family in your purrs and prayers today.
Update on Kahless.
He is home and will be fine. Will write more when we can.
Thank you all for your purrs and prayers for Onyx and Kahless.
Have a great day.

Update 12:40pm est
Sorry to leave in the middle...but we got a call from the vets and they wanted us to take Onyx & Kahless in right away. Some good news....some not so good news!
Onyx first....Temp is coming down....got another shot....Steriod...she seems perkier than what she was...eyes are brighter and have more life....newmies are still running out, but have a bit more consistency and color change. She seems to be walking more upright than droopy. And we didn't have to do anymore sub-q today.
Not so good news is Kahless. That Chrystal Chick has visited him again....he has a blockage. He had to stay at the vets. The are treating him now. He may have to spend the night. Purr for Kahless as we need to get rid of the Chrystal chick.
Hopefully no one else gets sick.
We Thank you all for you purrs and prayers for our family.
Love, Francis and his entire family
Thank you Diary Centeral for my DDP again today! We just can't believe it! I am so honored.
Thank you to all my friends for the email, pmails, gifties, pictures and comments. My friends are the best!
Please save you gifties, if you feel you need to give them, please send to my sisfur Onyx. Onyx ID#930994. She is really sick and still needs your purrs and prayers. We do have a little good news....her temp. has come down to 100.7. However we are still are force feeding her....but it's coming out as fast as it's going in. Poor baby! We are waiting to hear back from the vet, as she wants updates too. We love Dr. Holland. We will update you when we know more too.
Meanwhile the rest of the family seem to be doing a little better too. Kahaless is still upset a little, he seems to be haveing a hard time in the potty...so we are watching him. He has gas....As for Meowmy she still feels ucky....now Grammy don't feel so good. As Grammy is writing this we put another call into the vets about Kahless. Now both of them have gotta go to the vets. Got to close as we have to go the the vets. Please keep up in your purrs and prayers.

update on Onyx 7:00pm est
Grammy just typed it all out and forgot to save it and lost it. She must be tired.
So she will redo a shorter version.
Onyx did go back to the vets this morning....she had a temp of 104. Poor baby is really sick. The vet did a X-ray which was ok....bloodwork which was not good. Not good at all. They just can't pin point what this is. We gots more meds and special food for Onyx. If she doesn't eat we will have to us the syringe....she started to take a few licks, but stopped ...so we syringed the rest. She does drink water on her own. She still has the watery, stinky newmies...we hope the meds soon help them. She got more sub-q's. They gave us a few diapers to put on her to help keep her clean. Poor baby doesn't like them. In fact she took one off already! We will let you know more when we do.
In the meantime .... can spare a few purrs for Onyx.
Also not feeling well today is Kahless, Zeeke, Tommie, and Kibbles. They have all thrown up once today.
Meowmy is feeling a little betters. She has been able to eat and keep things down so far.
Grammy is just Tired.
Thank you all for making the past two days so exciting! First my Birthday...than Cat of the Day and A DDP. There was so much excitement in the house. I got lots of attentions, fine dinning and lots of love. I Thank all my friends for the pmails, emails, comments, pictures, gifties, new friendships and group honors and invites. I will treasure them always.
Today is a sick day at our house. It really started yesterday. Grammy had to take Onyx to the vets. She's not eating...and she's throwing up, and has the newmies really bad. The vet gave her Sub Q's and some tummy meds and a shot. Onyx has a fever and is a little jaundice and also has a foul body odor. We have to call the vet today and let her know how Onyx is doing. Onyx may have to go back to the vets again today. We will try to update later today.
Meanwhile Grammy was awaken by Meowmy calling her to get up...she's not feeling well. Grammy got up to help Meowmy...who was laying on the floor. She felt like she was going to pass out! She scared poor Grammy! Grammy got her a cold compress and some ginger ale. Meowmy finally felt betters enough to get up and go back to bed. Than Kahless threw up all over the place...this was before we had anything to eat....than Tommie threw up a hair ball. Poor Grammy! All this before 5am.
We got fed early....since Grammy was up! Now everyone is resting.
It's a ugly day....lots of rain....in fact to much.....lots of places are flooding.
Hope the day gets better!
Have a great day!
Love, Francis and family

Oh the chipmuncks are back...they are running around the yard. Hope that hawk stays away for a few days. Some birdies have come back too.

7:00pm - UPDATE ON ROMEO...
He's home! It's like he's a different cat from yesterday. The vet said he even ate for them. His kidneys are a normal range again and he is purring and meowing. We still have to keep an eye on him, but things are looking up. If he doesn't eat or drink for us again, he will need to go back to the vet for fluids again. We hope he will eat for us. Thanks for all the purrs sent to Romeo. We know they help!
Tater and Francis have enjoyed their day and are glad Romoe is home. Grammy and Meowmy got us all Butterscotch Pudding and Tapica Pudding to celebrate Tater's Birthday, Franny's DDP, and Romeo's Welcome Home Party. We even got treats! What a Happy Day!
Here at our house there's a lot going on today!
First....I'm a DDP today! Grammy told me! We were very surprised and excited. Grammy got up first and she fed us. We had Fancy Feast Turkey and Gravy. She even gave me left overs. So far so good! She didn't even know I was a DDP and I was getting special treatments. I got extra brushes, and petties too! So far....so good.
I would also like to Thank Catster Diary Central for this honor.
Many Thanks to all my friends who have sent me pmails, comments, gifties and Congrats. I love my friends. Speaking of friends....several of my friends are also DDP today too.
I wish you all a Great Day!
Second....a update on my brofur Romeo. Not so good news....Grammy had to run him to the vets yesterday. Quick!
He was very listless and moaning. She was scared and her eyes were leaky. The vet said his gums were looking great...but his kidneys were not so good. He was dehydrated. They decided to keep him over night and give him fluids slowly. We haven't heard from them yet, but we are hopeful. They said they would call...but it would probably be in the afternoon. They wanted him on the fluids as close to 24 hours as possible. Than, they were going to see about stimulating his appetite. We will let you know more....when we do. Oh, the vet also said he thinks Romeo is a lot older than we thought. When we adopted him they said he was around 2 years old, back than the vets thought his was older, but only a year or two old... but the vet said his eyes and body are saying that he appears to be in his later years. Probably closer to 15. Something we didn't want to hear. Please purr for Romeo, he is such a good boy.
Third....Today is my other Brofur Trooper Tater Tots Birthday!
Grammy love us all....but truth be known.....Tater is her special little man. Tater is eating better this past week and he is gaining some weight back. He has stomatitis and has a hard time eating. Grammy and Meowmy make his foods real soupy, but this week he is eating some of the stuff right out of the can. Today he had some of the Turkey and Gravy with us...but he couldn't eat it all..so ...Grammy mixed up some of his food with warm water and made it soupy. He finished it all. Tater has been wearing a calming collar for about a week now....they got him one to see if it would help him not be afraid of his food. So far it seems to have helped!
It's a cold morning....only in the 30's ....but the sun is shinning and we are excited. The cat tree is full of cats...laying in the sun...but the birdies haven't come back yet! There, are a few...but not many to watch. One of the squirrels did come to the feeder, but he didn't stay. Guess they are still scared of that hawk. Grammy didn't see him yesterday, but he might be in the tall pines and she wouldn't be able to see him.
Well got to go....it's a busy day.
Hope you all have a great day.

Oh my Gosh! Grammy finally got a good look at that hawk! He's really a big one. He was sitting on the big house type bird feeder. She saw him on it today. Twice! She was so excited. At first she thought it might be a young eagle, but Meowmy came running and said no it was the hawk. He must have sat on that bird feeder just watching and looking around for 30minutes or more. He is a beautiful bird, but Grammy is sorry to see him hanging around so much. Our birdies don't come by as much, with him prowling around. They don't want to be his dinner! We sure hope the birdies come back tomorrow.
Have a great evening.

Oh it's a beautiful day in Maryland. It's 54 degrees, most of the time the sun is shinning. Great day to lay in the windows. Grammy has two windows open for us today....and guess what?.....they are full of cats. When one jumps down....someone else jumps in. It's great! However, she did not open the porch. Something about the floor is cold. We don't have many birdies today, cause that Hawk is back and was sitting in our tree...this morning. Now, Meowmy is outside, pruning the brushes and cleaning up the flower beds. She checked her daylilies and some of them are shooting up. Boy that's a good sign. That means spring is on it's way. Grammy went outside and walked around and checked her pond. She took some of the leaves and stuff out of it..that the wind blew in. She saw some of fishes swimming around too. She saw her big old white guy. She was happy to see her fishies. She hasn't seen any frogs yet, but they usually come out when it's warmer. Grammy walked around and checked out Cat nip plants. They are also starting to show so green. Great....some more warm temps and we might get a leaf or two......Yes things are showing signs of Spring. We are all glad, cause we are tired of the white stuff and we don't want any more. We do still have a small pile of it in the back yard....but it's sort of dirty looking. Well got to go....I think it's my turn in the window again! Have a great day.
