I lost my Meow :(

January 21st 2009 3:02 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

Sometime, over the weekend, I lost my "Meow".

I am not a loud meower, I have a dainty little meow and I love to speak to Mom whenever I want to be loved and petted.

Sunday morning, when Mom woke up and went into the kitchen to prepare our breakfast - I opened my mouth to Meow - and a squeak came out! I tried again - and instead of a Meow - another squeak came out. I was frantic - and I went upstairs to see if, somehow, a kitty can actually lose their Meow by dropping it somewhere. I looked under the blankets, in the boxes, even under Lizzy's toys (I thought for sure that dog took my meow) - but no luck - no Meow to be found.

Then I thought - maybe it went on vacation? I am sure Meows get tired too - and sometimes have a nice escape - to kick back and relax on a sunny beach.

Mom had other ideas.....

Dr Heather (**Angel**) was here today - and Mom had Dr Heather check me out too - as my Meow has not yet returned. Per Dr Heather's examination - it appears that I have, quite simply, a sore throat - kitty laryngitis -if you will. But - Dr Heather did tell Mom if my Meow doesn't return in a week or two - that she would have to sedate me and put a scope down my throat to see if there are any polyps that developed, or something else, that has strangled my Meow.

For now - we are treating it as a sore throat.

I sure do miss my pretty Meow - and I am anxiously awaiting it's return.


2009 ~ off to a glorious start~

2009 has proven to be a joyous time for me and my family.

We started the new year off in a very special way, with attending the ceremony that united my Brother, Skinner, and his Girlfriend, Chelsea Louise ~ as Husband and Wife.

It was a Heavenly Wedding - one that I shall not forget as long as I live. The Bride was absolutely beautiful and radiant. My brother was glowing with pride and love for his beautiful bride.

I never thought I would see this moment - where Skinner would be healthy enough to get married. I wiped kitty tears from my eyes - as the Bride and Groom proclaimed I DO.

Coming back down to earth - I thought it could not get any happier. We found out that today, Binx (my Baby Brother) is one of Catsters Daily Diary Picks!

My heart is bursting with joy and pride for both of my brothers.

2009 really has gotten off to a glorious start!

We have been so busy as of late, that we have not had a chance to sit down and paw out our thoughts and the goings on at our house.

We had such a lovely Christmas - thanks to all our wonderful friends that sent us gifts. It really was special to Skinner - he has never received so many gifts, nor felt so special and loved in his life. He was in shock the entire time Mom kept pulling out gifts for him.

Purrs cannot express how deeply touched how my family, and myself were, by the outpouring of love for Skinner. It was truly a special Christmas.

To add to our special Christmas - we added a new family member on December 23rd - the day before Christmas Eve.

I am so proud to introduce you to my new baby brother BINX!

He is a bundle of energy and love. He is a very gentle boy that would not hurt anyfur or anyhuman. He sure has a huge purr box on that little body of his - why I can hear him clear as a bell when he starts his motor!

It was truly a Christmas to remember - and with my deepest Gratitude - I thank every one of Skinner's friends for the beautiful gifts and thoughts of love and Kindred Kitties for letting us add our beautiful Binxy boy to our family.


Thanks to you and your purrs, Skinner is now home recovering

Thank you all so very much - purring for Skinner to come home and for him to overcome his latest setback!!!

He came home yesterday evening and our house finally feels like a home and that we are a complete family once again.

He is still not out of the woods yet - as he is still not making many solid bowel movements - so Mom has to keep an eye on him. We are hoping that being home will help his body recover and that he gets rid of his tummy and poo problems.

With all my love and gratitude - I appreciate everyone supporting Skinner and never giving up hope on him. I know it is one thing that keeps him going.

Thank You Everyone


Purrayers for *Skinner*

Finally - our sweet Angel Doctor will be coming today, to examine Skinner. For me - the waiting has been long and hard - as I just want to know why this is happening to Skinner, and what can be done to make him better again.

I was heartbroken, last night, when there was still blood in Skinner's stool. As you may know - my family was hoping that it was just a one time thing (except Mom had a sinking feeling, in the pit of her stomach, that it wasn't. I guess Mom's have an instinct for this sort of stuff).

Even if the Doctor cannot tell what is going on with Skinner by a simple examination - at least we will be heading towards an answer when the lab work is done. I do take a smidge of comfort in that notion - and right now - any comfort is welcoming comfort.

I want to thank everyfur and everypawrent that has given our family their support and purrs. Skinner is behind in sending out all his thank yous - but Mom will see that it gets done soon. We just didn't want anyfur to think we do not appreciate your purrs and gifts - we really do as it means so much.

Please keep Skinner in your thoughts today - and purray that we find an answer to why he is having this happen to him.

You are a dear brother, Skinner. I purray that you are OK and that this can be diagnosed and cured. Stay strong, Skinner. I love You.


Purrs for ***SKINNER***

Poor Skinner.

Just when he was starting to put a little bit of food in his mouth and trying to get back to 100% - he had a set back this morning.

Mom discovered blood in his stool and that he was straining to evacuate his bowels. Mom has to keep a close eye on him - as the soonest the vet can get here is Wednesday. If Skinner has any other alarming symptoms pop up - Mom was instructed to take him to ER immediately.

I googled what this can mean for Skinner. Well - it left me horribly confused. It can either be nothing or something serious - **sigh**.

Being that Skinner has 2 diseases - it causes us all much worry and angst.

Please **PURR** like mad for my kitty brother, Skinner. He has come so far - and this set back saddens me.

Dear Lord, please open your gates
and call St. Francis
to come escort this beloved companion
across the Rainbow Bridge.

Assign Fredo to a place of honor,
for he has been a faithful servant
and has always done his best to please me.

Bless the hands that send Fredo to you,
for they are doing so in love and compassion,
freeing him from pain and suffering.

Grant me the strength not to dwell on my loss.
Help me remember the details of Fredo's life
with the love he has shown me.
And grant me the courage to honor Fredo
by sharing those memories with others.

Let him remember me as well
and let Fredo know that I will always love him.
And when it's my time to pass over into your paradise,
please allow Fredo to accompany those
who will bring me home.

Thank you, Lord,
for the gift of his companionship
and for the time we've had together.

And thank you, Lord,
for granting me the strength
to give Fredo to you now.


Rest In Peace, Sweet and Loving Fredo.

If anyfur who reads this has a moment, please click on Fredo's name, which will link you to his page to visit him and pay your respects - it would be so appreciated!

With Tears and Respect - I end my Diary.

To A Sweet, Loving, Inspiring Cat - You Will Be Missed and You Are Loved!

Everyfur - remind your pawrents that today is a very important day - it is election day.

No matter which candidate you want to win - it is so crucial that you get to your polling place (if you have not done so already) and cast your ballot. Unlike us kitties and puppies - your pawrents have a say in whom governs the land (for us - our Pawrents govern our land).

Please Vote and be an active participant in democracy!

Our Tribte to Abandoned and Abused Animals

We are all taking time to post our favorite videos about animal awareness.

The video I posted is called "Dirty Old Stray" - as it really does apply to Baby, Skinner and Myself. It is a story about a little stray kitty - so grab your Kleenex - it is touching (I wept like a baby)!

We want to remind everyfur and everyhuman about the neglect, abuse and abandonment that occurs every day to kitties and puppies. It is hard to understand why this happens to furry beings that only want love, food and shelter - is that really too much to ask?

Please purr for our furry brothers and sisters in need, that they get the love, food and shelter they so desperately seek and need.

Help in any way that you know how - even sending emails about stopping animal cruelty and signing any petitions to help our furr brothers and sisters in need of a helping hand.


Rescue me not only with your hands but with your heart as well. I will respond to you. Rescue me not out of pity but out of love. I will love you back.

Rescue me not with self-righteousness but with compassion. I will learn what you teach. Rescue me not because of my past but because of my future. I will relax and enjoy.

Rescue me not simply to save me but to give me a new life. I will appreciate your gift. Rescue me not only with a firm hand but with tolerance and patience. I will please you.

Rescue me not only because of who I am but who I'm to become. I will grow and mature.
Rescue me not to revere yourself to others but because you want me. I will never let you down.

Rescue me not with a hidden agenda but with a desire to teach me to trust. I will be loyal and true. Rescue me not to be chained or to fight but to be your companion. I will stand by your side.

Rescue me not to replace one you've lost but to soothe your spirit. I will cherish you. Rescue me not to be your pet but to be your friend. I will give you unconditional love.

Rescue me with true love in your heart and I will give you these things all the days of my life.

How I got my name - Winston

October 19th 2008 7:05 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

We are all sitting down to paw out how we were each given our names.

Mine is rather simple - really.

My Mommy took me in as a stray cat. Daddy was in Amesterdam, at the time, with my Uncle Jeff. Mommy told Daddy about this kitty cat that appeared at her back door - beautiful but not very big. Mommy told Daddy that my fluffy fur made me look fuller than I actually was. Mommy told Dad that when she picked me up - it was like picking up air. Daddy asked if Mom was going to keep me - and Mom said - DEFINITELY.

Mommy told Daddy the names that popped into her head when she saw me: Mojito and Winston. Daddy hated Mojito but really thought Winston was a cool name.

When Daddy came back - he asked Mom how did she think of Winston. Mom said that I was named after John Lennon - as Winston was his middle name (John Winston Lennon).

That is the story behind how I was named Winston...
