I am a big 4 years old today. My birthday has been pawsome with many birthday wishes from sweet furiends. Manytoes and family made a really lovely birthday picture for me and I am using it now. Isn't it purrty? My handsome Lolly sent me a BIG cake and lovely message. I received a birthday cupcake from my handsome brofur Cannoli, a birthday hat from my brofur PorkChop, an ice cream cone from Anna and her furmily and a fun bouncing ball from Newman and his sweet furmily. I got some really nice birthday messages on my meowmy's Facebook wall, too. Thank you to everyone who has helped me celebrate my 4th birthday is such style.
I haven't written since the passing of our dear furiend Cocoa. So much has happened since then. Meowmy has been busy taking care of all the kitties in our home with the different ailments they have ongoing.
My wonderful doggie brofur McDuff died unexpectedly on August 7, 2011. He had a canine hemangiosarcoma. He never had a sick day and we are all thankful for his good health. It was a shock to my pawrents and to the whole fumily. While my pawrents were trying to accept and recover from losing McDuff, my sisfur Kujo became ill with renal failure. We thought she was improving but unknown to us or the vets treating her, she had developed pancreatitis. Kujo made her Bridge journey on November 29, 2011. The losses really were painful to my pawrents but were the hardest on my meowmy. Then on May 22, 2011, my precious brofur Prince, died after a short illness with lymphoma. He died just barely four days after his first chemo treatment. The cause of his death is thought to be tumor lysis syndrome. His passing took us all by surprise and has taken the greatest toll on my meowmy. So, in part, those are many of the reasons that our diaries have fallen so far behind.
Thank you to all my furiends who have helped me celebrate my 4th birthday in grand style. My love and kisses to each of you.

Shortly before 8:30am EST, we got some very sad news. Auntie Barbi called Meowmy to tell her that our dear furiend Cocoa had crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He will always be a special part of our furmily and always in our hearts. He left some big pawprints in each of our hearts. We are all still in shock. Please remember Auntie Barbi and Unkie Rob and all the sad siblings that Cocoa has left behind to mourn and miss him. Cocoa was and is very special to my meowmy... she always loved to hear his cute little meows (sometimes very loud) as he chatted when Auntie Barbi and Meowmy were on the phone chatting. Rest in Peace, dear and special furiend. You will never be far from our hearts. We LOVE you, Cocoa.

Oh boy! I am a big 3 years old today. Meowmy says she can't believe I made it this far. You see, I love to chew cords. I get into lots of trouble because of my love for chewing electrical cords. Meowmy says she lost count of the cords we have had to replace. She makes a mad face when she scolds me about it. Can you believe that Meowmy would make a mad face at ME?
Meowmy told me she will be home with me almost all day long. Is that a good thing? I have so many cords to chew. Maybe I can encourage her to go somewhere so I can celebrate my birthday in grand chewing style. MOL.
My brofur Cannoli is celebrating his 3rd birthday, too. We were adopted the same day and got to ride back to Cannoli's home and I met all his new brofurs and sisfur before we headed to NC. Cannoli is furry special brofur.
My littermate and most special brofur Cannoli sent me a yummy chocolate cupcake. He said, "Dear Karisma~ I'm so excited to be celebrating our 3rd Birthday's together and I am very proud that your my sister. May your special day be filled with lots of love. KIsses~ Cannoli xoxo 7-1-11"
Sweet Angel Wanda and her precious furmily sent me a party hat. They said, "Hope you have a lovely birthday Karisma! Hugs to all! Love Wanda, Norman and family"
My handsome brofur PorkChop sent me a yummy chocolate cupcake. He said, "Wishing my beautiful sister, Karisma, a very Happy 3rd Birthday!!! I know you'll get spoiled today Hope you get extra lovies and more!! Love your bro, PorkChop!! *bonks and kisses*"
My wonderpurr furhusband, the most famous Mr. Lollycat McNoNo sent me a big cake. He said, "Happy Birthday to my beautipurr wife! Do you want me to sing to you? I've been practicing...Happy birthday to you, you know I love you, happy birthday my wifey, happy birthday to you!" Did you hear how PURRfect his pitch was and how sweet his song was? I think I am in kitty heaven after his serenade!
Ciao-Li and his pawsome furmily sent me a purrty pink ribbon. They said, "Happy birthday, beautiful Karisma! We hope you have a fabulous day and that all your wishes come true! May your family spoil you rotten, mol!We love you, precious girl!"
Milo and his wonderpurr furmily sent me a beautipurr rose. They said, "Happee Birfday purrty Karisma! I lubbs ur name! Shur hope u haz a great day 'n pawty lots 'n get many spawcial prezzies 'n playtime!! Hugs 'n nudges, MILO, Smokey Joe, Sam, Timmy 'n Ziggy"

Oh my goodness! This has been a most purrfect day. I did not have to dress up and have my picture taken. Yay. My pawrents ended up having to take my doggie brofur to the doc doc because of his ears. He ended up having a hematoma inside his left ear and an ear infection and he has a hot spot on his right hind leg. He is a mess. After they took my doggie brofur to the doc doc, they had so much catching up to do because they have not been home much while they were clearing my dad's mom's home. They finally finished that yesterday and are hoping things will settle down in our home now. So, my pawrents were not home much of today. However, when they got home late in the afternoon (almost 5), they found a package with my mom's name and mine on it. I have been expecting a pawresent from my handsome furhusband Lolly... so I knew it was my gift from him. Meowmy helped me open my pawresent after she unloaded the car. Oh my catness.... Lolly and my wonderpurr mother-in-law got me a portrait of me... done by Tyler's mom, Auntie Jill. I squealed with delight when I saw it but I think my meowmy outdid me in the squealing department. It is just PURRfect. Along with my portrait, I found one of my favorite toys. It is the crinkle noise kick toy. I love those. And I got 20 catnip pompom balls, too. What a surprise! Lolly sent me a card that meows furry loudly. I love, love, love everything I got from my precious Lolly. I have made my portrait from Lolly my main picture now. Isn't it beautifur?
Riley and Skippy sent me a purrty pink ribbon. They said, "Happy Birthday Karisma! Here is a birthday badge for you to celebrate your special day! Enjoy getting lot's of extra hugs and kisses! Hugs & Purrs Riley and Skippy"
Sweet Angel Mr. Sam and his furmily sent me a fun beach ball. They said, "Happy Birthday Karisma! We love you!"
Cole sent me a purrty heart. He said, "Happy Birthday Beautiful Karisma! Hope you have the best day ever. Love. Cole"
Teebo and his wonderpurr furmily sent me a fun kite. They said, "Happiest of Birthdays Karisma! Hope you have a great day!! Purrs, Teebo, Callie and Rose"
DA TABBIES O TROUT TOWNE sent me a yummy slice of watermelon. They said, "Stopping by with best fishes for a veree happee day oh birth karisma; hope yur day rocks, ewe get plentee oh treets, cake, purrhaps some new toys N hope ya get a new catillac !! happee day frum all oh us ! peace out N rock on "
Anna and her sweet furmily sent me a delicious lemon drink. They said, "Happy Birthday Karisma! We hope you had a furbulous day filled with lots of goodies and extra loving. We thought a cool glass of catnipaid would go great with all that cake! happy birthday hugs and headbonks Anna and furryones"
Mikey and his sweet furmily sent me a yummy chocolate cupcake. They said, "Happy Happy Birthday, Karisma! We hope you are celebrating your special day in style and really living it up! Loving purrs, Mikey, Bubby, Aria, Bitta, Simon, Charm, Katie, Tatti"
Ozzy and Harriet sent me a purrty pink ribbon. They said, "Happy Birthday to You! Happy Birthday to You! Happy Birthday Dear Karisma! Happy Birthday to You! Hope your day was filled with love and treats! ^paw and meowies, ozzy and harriet"
Harry and his pawsome furmily sent me a purrty sunflower. They said, "Happy 3rd Birthday, Karisma!! Hope you are enjoying your special day! Purrs, Harry, Albie, and Family"
I can't thank effuryone enough for helping make m 3rd birthday the best one a girl could ever want. Thank you for all the comments, messages and gifties. My most special thanks to Lolly, Mama Rachel and Auntie Jill! My love to effuryone!

OMC. I woke up to learn that I am one of today's DDP honorees. Thank you to Catster HQ and to the Diary Gal. I am so excited. I will get back to my diary later today when Meowmy has the time to help me. I am serving as a diary honoree today with a sweet furiend named Rose who is the DOTD honoree. My concats to her.
My pawrents are in the middle of finding a place for my human grandmother to live since her Medicare coverage ends at her nursing home/rehabilitation home since she got out of the hospital in January. Yesterday, my meowmy and my dad's sister went around searching for a place for her IF she qualifies for assisted living. The doctor must sign a paper in order for her to be able to live in assisted living versus nursing home. So, I know they will be back at it today as time has run out with her financial coverage. So, while I am furry excited, I will have to return later to check on things with my diary and this honor.
One thing, however, Meowmy discovered that she had NOT published two of my diary entries. She is getting furry bad about that. She is going to publish one right after this one but the other one still needs some more work. I really need to take applications for a typist upon which I can depend. Meowmy is not that purrson! Pffffffttttt.
Be back later ~

Well, yesterday Meowmy DID scold my dad about leaving the paint lid where we could find it... and do you know what he did after the "fiasco"???? He decided to paint the "missed" spots of the green wall paint. You will never guess what Meowmy found.... YES, the lid on the counter upside down AGAIN! Meowmy said thank goodness that she found it BEFORE we did. She put it in our microwave and shut the door so none of us could assist Dad in the painting effurts!!!! I think green would have been lovely all over the kitchen, don't you?
Happy Easter to all my beloved furiends and their humans!

I was only trying to help... honest. You see yesterday, my pawrents were furry busy trying to get things in order before our Easter family gathering. If you remember, last Thanksgiving... well, just before Thanksgiving, my pawrents tore the downstairs bathroom apart and began the remodeling. Effurything that could happen to delay the progress actually DID happen. So, when Thanksgiving rolled around, the bathroom was a mess and barely functional... they had the human litter box and the sink to wash their hands... that was all. They still had the tile floor to remove and sheetrock to put up. Well, long story short, they got most of it done just before Christmas but did not get the finishing touches such as painting and wood trim up. Then, just after Christmas, my human grandmother got sick and was in the hospital and then had to go to a rehabilation facility, where she still lives. She may actually have to live at the nursing home from now on... but, all of this, halted the bathroom progress. So now that my human grandmother is stable, my pawrents wanted to get the bathroom ready for Easter.....
Yesterday afternoon, my dad opened the paint can for the ceiling paint and left the lid on the kitchen counter. Meowmy did not see this or she would have put the lid out of harm's way. Being the curious soul that I am, I decided to jump up on the counter to check things out. Where did I land? You got it! Right on top of the lid. I suppose you know what happened next. I got furry scared and immediately jumped off the counter. Meowmy heard the noise and looked and saw me painting the kitchen floor, counters and area carpet.
Do you know what she did next? She chased ME. Yes she did. I did not do anything wrong so I was not going to allow her to catch me. I was only checking things out and trying to help. And I was painting the kitchen as I ran. What was her problem?
She finally caught me and then she washed the paint off of me, expecially concentrating on my paws. I don't think that was at all fair as I was doing a purrty good job of spreading the paint around in the kitchen.
After Meowmy washing me, she put me in the family room but I was really miffed so I ran and hid for a few hours. I could still hear her muttering about having to clean the kitchen. Do you know what she did? She cleaned all the paint I had spread throughout the kitchen. How is that for grateful? Pffffftttt. I don't think I will try to help her next time.

Yesterday was a very sad day, indeed, for my furmily and me and for so many Catster furiends. We were shocked and saddened to learn that our beloved furiend Hazel Lucy was to go to Heaven at 12:30 PM EST. Our meowmy had come home from getting her hair cut about 11:30 and turned on the catputer to see what was happening. She went to FB first and saw the posting about Hazel Lucy. The next hour we all spent our time crying and praying for Hazel Lucy and her wonderful meowmy Julie.
Hazel Lucy and her meowmy were and are such beautiful and caring souls who started the wonderful Purr Threads on Catster. Hazel Lucy touched all of our hearts in such a special way and she will always hold a very special place in our hearts and in the hearts of so many others. True love never dies and we do truly love Hazel Lucy and thank her for being a most special part of our lives.
Please keep Hazel Lucy and her meowmy Julie in your purrs and prayers during this sad and difficult time. We know that it is never easy to say our earthly goodbyes. We know that our lives will be reunited again one day and that, while absent from the earth, they are always present in our hearts.
We wanted to write yesterday but our meowmy just could not gather herself to help us. Hazel Lucy and Julie hold a very special place in our hearts and we found ourselves too devastated to write.
We still find ourselves shocked and deeply saddened but we know that Hazel Lucy is free of her earthly pain and is healthy again and is now happily reunited with her beloved furhusband Buddie. What a special reunion that was.
Hazel Lucy, we will forever love you and are so blessed to call you our furiend. Our meowmy is blessed, also, to call your meowmy a special friend. You are both dearly loved.
Thank you, Auntie Hazel Lucy, for loving me and for being my precious and most loved Auntie Hazel Lucy.

Oh my kitty cats! I can't believe that it has been six months since my meowmy has allowed me to paw in my diary. None of us have been pawing much but six months is way too long. We have had lots going on in our furmily with different sickly kitties and issues and my human grandmother has had lots of problems with her health and my pawrents have had furry full plates. I was not one of the sickly kitties, thank catness.
We lost too many furiends during this time. They had to go the Bridge and we have been furry sad about it. Each furiend lives in our hearts but it was just too hard to visit Catster.
Another reason we have not written in our diaries is the changes in Catster. For us, the changes made Catster so slow that Meowmy has not found the time to work with us on our diaries. Many of our furiends were put in the kennel for their comments about different things and we did not care for the punishment that our furiends received. We love our furiends furry much and it made us furry sad that they were being punished.
On January 30th, Aria and her birthday siblings sent my furmily and me a yummy cupcake. They said, "Hi Karisma and Family! Thank you for being such sweet and thoughtful furrends! We want to share a little birthday cuppie-cake with you to let you know how much we love having you as our furrends. Loving purrs, Mikey, Bitta, Charm, and Aria"
Today, my handsome furhusband Mr. Lollycat McNoNo sent me a beautiful dozen long stemmed red roses. He said, "Happy Valentines Day to my beautiful wife! I love you, love you, love you more than anything else in the world."
I want to wish all my furiends and their humans a very Happy Valentine's Day! Sending much love to all of you.

OMC! I woke up today to find that I am one of today's DDPs! Thank you to Catster HQ and to the Diary Gal! I am sharing this honor with the adorable Tethys Fluffkins who is the DOTD and with Francis who is a sweet furiend of ours and with a cute oranie named Jasper. CONCATS to all of you on being diary picks. I am thrilled to be picked with you.
Guess what else is today? Well, my brofur Hooch is celebrating his 12th birthday today. We are all so happy to celebrate this special day with Hooch. He has had a furry rough year with many ups and downs in his health issues. We will be celebrating big time. Wishing Hooch a very Happy 12th Birthday and purring for many more to come for him.
Yesterday was the birthday of my meowmy's mother. Grandma has lived in Heaven for 20 years now but Meowmy says that Grandma is always in her heart and not a single day goes by that Meowmy doesn't miss Grandma. Meowmy says that not only was Grandma her mother but Grandma was her very best friend in the world. She really misses her mother and the wonderful times they shared. Grandma lived with my pawrents the last 7 years of her life and what a blessing those years were to my meowmy. Happy Birthday, Grandma. I wish I could have known you.
Auntie Hazel Lucy sent me a fun beachball. She said, "Concats on DDP and your beautiful portrait! love, auntie HL" I am going to have some fun with my new ball. I love to chase balls around the house.
I got a sweet pmail from Angel Buddie and his furmily. They said,
"DIARY PICK! DIARY PICK!
WAY TO GO, BEAUTIFUL
AND SWEET, KARISMA! WE LOVE YOU
AND YOUR FAMILY AND
WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!
GET LOTS OF EXTRA PETS & LOVE
& TREATS TODAY!
PURRS OF HAPPINESS,

ANGELS: BUDDIE MCKENNA MOOKIE
ANGEL & RICKI"
Sweet Angel McKenna is one of my Guardian Angels.
Also, yesterday, I was finally able to add my Angel BFF Quinn C. as one of my Guardian Angels to my page. Quinn is watching over me from the Bridge and he assures me that NO cooties will ever bother me. He agreed to be my Guardian Angel shortly after he was called to the Rainbow Bridge but I have had a really hard time accepting that my BFF is an angel now. I have two of the best Guardian Angels ever.
