Nothing New

I know. It's a stupid title for a diary entry, but it's true. Things are just so boring around here. Nothing interesting going on. It's been real hot so far this summer. We don't go on the deck much because as soon as we see how hot it is we want to come back inside, so now Mommy just says were not even going to go out.

Mommy got another job, so she's away a lot longer during the day. I don't like that. She scared me today. I was sitting at the basement window when I saw someone come out of nowhere and walk right up to me. I hissed and growled! It was Mommy, but I didn't care. She never does that, and she scared me! I don't like that either.

She said I'm being cranky today too. I was getting some belly rubs, and she tickled me, so I nipped her. Not hard you know, just like a 'hey, knock it off', but she really took offense. I've never done that before you see.

So that's all I have to report. I thought about posting this later in case I have something to add, but I doubt I will. If I do, then it will be worth another entry, but don't hold your breath!

 

Away for awhile

I haven't been on Catster much and now Mom is going away for a few days starting Sunday. I don't know what's going on with my friends any more. I hate when she leaves. I guess I will just hide and be sad and worried and missing my friends for a few days. Boo hoo ...

 

Six years ago

Six years ago today, I came here to my furever home. AnnaDee came too. We celebrate today as our birthdays. Can't believe so much time has gone by. Where does the time go?

Today is a good day for a birthday because Mommy is off. We've gotten lots of attention, a new toy, 'Da Bird', and we are set to get some tuna later on. Yum! I love the toy! I jump and leap and chase after it. You'd never think I was a senior kitty.

Plus, my dear friend Kay sent me a crown to wear, and Samoa sent me a yummy hot dog that I don't have to share! Thanks so much friends!

I see it's been three months almost since I wrote in my diary. I better get back to it!

 

My own unique style

You might not be able to tell from my main photo, but I received my Hazel Lucy St. Patty's Day hat today. You probably thought I would be wearing it on my head, but that is so passe. I like to wear my hats as nose mittens. In fact, this one is more like a face mitten. Mmmm, it's nice and soft and all warm and snuggly, AND what you can't tell from looking at it is that it has the most delicious fragrance!

My hat also came with a fabulous coordinating collar with a toy attached to it! AnnaDee tried to steal it before Mom put it on me, but I chased her off. "Get your own" I said! I haven't uploaded that picture yet, but I will shortly.

Thank you so much Hazel Lucy! Now I am all ready for St. Patty's Day!

 

So much excitement!

As if yesterday weren't exciting enough, we woke up (late) to find out that I am a DDP! Tomorrow I am going to have to rest!

I am happy to have heard from several of my friends to concatulate me on my honor today, and my luck yesterday: Kay, Frankie and Mac, Edgar and Emily and the Carolina Crew all sent me lucky four-leaf clovers. Hooch and Ava Corrine and her family sent me some hats to go with my Hazel Lucy hat. L'il Bear Boo Boo sent me a heart. Special pawmails were sent by Buddie and his family and Hazel Lucy. Some kitty from Calvin's family sent me a note on my Voki. I can't listen at home, so Mom will have to listen at work tomorrow and report back to me. Bet I know which kitty it is ...

Thank you so much to all my friends for their good wishes and to Catster for my special honor today!

 

A happy day

Woo hoo! I won I won I won!!!! I won Hazel Lucy's St. Patty's Day hat! I have never won anything. I am so excited! Purr purr purr! I cannot wait to model it. Actually, I wish I had it right now as our heat is not working, and I have been quite chilly all day. Hmmmm. I have an idea ...

 

A sad day; a happy day

I was very sorry to read that my new friend Nittany went to the Bridge today. **sigh** He spent his last bit of time here outside enjoying the warm sun on a mild, late winter day. I know his family will miss him terribly. I hope when he gets settled that he will send some updates from the Bridge.

The happy day part will be in another post. I just cannot combine the two.

 

All better

I did not leave any pancake like deposits in the litterbox on Friday or yesterday, so Mom has pronounced me 'recovered'. Rafiki took an extra day. Mom is glad it's been an uneventful weekend, and I am glad to not have medicine squirted down my throat!

 

Confusion

I had to go back to the vet today. Mom is pretty sure I still have the loose stool problem. I say pretty sure because she has never really "seen" that it is me, but today she did "see" that Rafiki does! I thought I might be spared the return trip as a result, but no such luck. Momentarily she thought it might have been Rafiki all along, but then she remembered the buckets of water I was drinking, and the spot I left on the stairs. I didn't eat breakfast this morning, and I wouldn't play with the shoe lace that I have been liking so much lately.

So, I had to go on the car ride from hell wit Rafiki. He just will not shut up. I know it's bad, but that incessant howling made me even more nervous. Then I started to cry too!

At the vet office, Mom opened up our carriers once we were in the exam room. Rafiki had to get weighed first, and when he was done, he came and jammed his big ole butt into the tiny carrier with me instead of going into his big carrier! I could hardly breathe in there! He had his exam first. Then it was my turn. It was terrible, and I cannot speak of it. It made me growl big, loud un-Hershey-like growls. They did bloodwork and a rectal cytology. Need I say more?

Mom got the results this afternoon. Not very conclusive. No bad bacteria was found. My bloodwork is good. The vet said my glucose was slightly elevated, but that could be from my stressed state. It wasn't anywhere near the levels they see when cats come in with diabetes. My bunn(?) was slightly low, but the vet isn't ready to pursue anything there yet.

Mom reported that I was looking for some lunch when we returned, and that I did play with the shoe lace a bit. So now, tonight, Mom has to separate me and Rafiki, so she can determine whether one of us or both of us still has this problem tomorrow, and we will go from there. I just want to be better!

 

Still not back to my old self

Mom took me to the vet yesterday. I have have loose stools. The doctor said everything looks okay and feels okay, but I lost a pound; maybe from the past few days though. He gave Mom the option of doing bloodwork or treating my symptoms and see what happens. Mom took the second option because she has to take Rafiki in tomorrow. I might have to go with him if I don't seem better.

I got one dose of yucky medicine last night and another this morning. I still have the loose stools tonight, but I'm supposed to take the medicine for five days. Mom thought I only vomited on Sunday, but she found some when she got home tonight. It wasn't from today though. It was on one of the cardboard scratchers and blended right in. It was Ben's crunchy food which I have taken a liking to, so that means it's either from last night or the night before maybe because I see it there is any left after Ben goes to bed. Mom is more concerned now because of the second vomiting episode.

Tonight I ate my dinner. Yesterday at the vet's, Mom bought the I/D food for sensitive tummies. I ate that tonight. Don't remember if I ate any for breakfast when she put it out. So far, dinner is still in my tummy. At least I still have an appetite. Mom is worried because the vet said it could be something like a thyroid problem. I had bloodwork done back in September, and it was all fine then. We are hoping it's just a stubborn stomach bug that will clear up soon.
