Good News

The vet called today and said my blood work is wonderful. Before the surgery in November, I had high white blood cell and neutrophil counts, but now they are normal. Yay!


Check up

I have to go to the vet tomorrow for a check up and blood work. I am so tired of going to the vet! Thankfully, I haven't thrown up since my surgery. I am eating and feeling pretty good but not putting on much weight. I am not worried about that, but Mommy is. It is awfully cold here. Mom moved one of the window perch heaters to my bed. It's too cold to sit by the window anyway. I asked Mom to warm up the car tomorrow morning before we go. Brrrr. Hopefully we'll get a good report from the vet.


I have cancer.

So it seems like Catster is allowing me to stay on tonight. I have been trying to come back here for months.

Anyway, it has been a rough year. In November of 2013, I was diagnosed as hyperthyroid. After Radiocat in January, Mom noticed I wasn't gaining my weight back, but the vet just said it would take awhile. In March, I started vomiting. It's a long story, but suffice it to say that I have been feeling lousy all year. In November, I had to have surgery. They took four biopsies and found small cell lymphoma in all. The good news is that now the doc knows what to treat me for. I am on chemo and doing really well; at least I am not sick any more, and I am eating better.

Hope to catch up with my friends again ...

10 Years Ago

Today is my birthday/gotcha day. I am fifteen years old or thereabouts. The past six months haven't been so great. I was diagnosed with a hyperactive thyroid for which I received Radiocat treatment in January. Then in March, I started with tummy troubles. It sure is tough getting old. One day you feel fine, but the next you feel ... old. But ten years ... wow! I remember when Mom came to the Center. I was feeling kinda down. It was good to be off the street, but I was stuck with a bunch of strange cats in an unfamiliar place. When Mom came to the shelter, she found me sitting in my litter box in my 'space.' I wasn't exactly thrilled to meet her, but she took me with her anyway. She snagged AnnaDee too, and off I went to my new life in my furever home. I took my good old time getting acclimated, but Mom was okay with that. I wouldn't even sleep in the room with her, and I feel bad because she told me it made her sad. But she waited, and now I sleep with her every night.

It's good to be active again on Catster (sort of). Mom is really busy with work and school, so she can't always help me out here. That's why I have been unresponsive, but I want to thank my friends who have sent the POP and birthday greetings. We'll be celebrating tomorrow. I don't know what to tell Mom to get me for my special treat. Chicken? Fish? I don't know. I'm very finicky these days. I'll have to see how the spirit moves me tomorrow.


Thanks and stuff

I want to thank all our friends for rosies and messages that have been sent to all of us. We haven't been able to get on much what with site troubles and Mom being totally overwhelmed with her last final exam for awhile.

I haven't been feeling good. I've had varying symptoms and been dragged to the vet about five times in six weeks. This week I have to go to a specialist. It's the same trip Rafiki used to have to make. He hated it, and now I have to make that trip. Mom hates it too. It is all bad memories. Other kitties go there and get healed, but for us it seems to be doom. I'm scared.

So, Friday and Saturday, I ate and Mom was happy. Today started slow, but now I am getting hungry. Mom has been making home made food, but today I wanted some crunchy food. Mom said I can have anything I will eat (almost).

Can anycat tell us if there is a way to send a rosie to all of our friends at once? Thanks for any help.

Wow - it's been a long time since I have been a DDP. Things are still not quite right at our house. I am not feeling my best. Wednesday was awful. Mommy dragged me off to the vet, and, as if that were not bad enough, she left me there all day! All day I tell you. They sucked blood again, then they denuded my belly and rubbed goop all over it and went round and round with this strange gizmo. it did not hurt, but it was too weird, and I did not like it one bit. Mom said Rafiki used to have to have that done twice a year (but they never denuded his belly).

So now I can't have fishy food anymore. I have to have different 'proteins.' Well, mom already started doing that two weeks ago because we all changed our eating patterns after Rafiki went to the Bridge and wouldn't eat our food. She is going to try giving me a little bit of plain, cooked chicken this weekend to see if I'll eat it because I am just not super hungry. I ate some of that prescription food last night, but it just didn't appeal to me this morning. Mom says I must eat.

Mom was late getting home from work last night. She came home with a box, and in that box was another box in a green velvet pouch. The box inside the pouch was placed on the shelf in the bedroom with some other things that remind us of Rafiki.

It's awfully quiet in the house. I do my best, but even Meezer that I am, I cannot match Rafiki. He was the loudest kitty any of us ever heard. Rafiki always used to groom me. I miss that. He was such a big goofball. When he was a little guy, he used to follow me around and curl up with me. I miss him.

I don't feel good. I threw up last night. I threw up this morning after mommy left for work. I did not get up to eat dinner. Mom gave me a spoonful of fishy food juice. I did eat it but threw up again. Mom says I have to go to the vet tomorrow. I already feel bad enough. I don't wanna go to the vet! I was there two weeks ago for the same thing. It passed then. I told Mom it will pass again. She doesn't buy it. :-(


Please stay in touch!

I think we are in denial over the demise of our Catster community. I cannot get my thoughts together. I just want to let everyone know that they can find mom on FB. If you pmail me, I will tell you how to find her and/or give you her email address. I don't want to lose all my friends ...
