Well, hello there! It sure has been a while since I have stopped by here to update. Mum & Dad have been really busy lately. Work work work! Did you know that Mom started a new job? She's working at a petstore now! She's the Animal Care Manager (that means she is in charge of the care and wellbeing of all the animals there!) and is working her way towards being an Associate Manager! We have some new furthings living here now too. 4 of these weird little things Mom & Dad call "guinea pigs", to me they look an awful lot like small squeeky kittens. Cheyenne & Auron seem to like them but I kinda just ignore them most of the time. Sometimes I sleep on top of the cages but thats about it.
Mom brought me to the doctor the other day. Ive been on a special diet for almost a year now because they had suspected some type of allergy. Well you see I dont really like that bland special food so Mom has had to switch it quite a few times to find one that I would eat for more than a few days. well over the last month or so she has noticed that even though I eat like a "horse" I am still looking rather thin and my coat is not as beautiful and full as it once was. So I had to go in and have some bloodwork done and they did some tests on my poo. Guess what, everything came back totally NORMAL!? I didnt even have worms like the Vet thought I might. That made mom & dad pretty frustrated, I mean they were happy Im okay but upset they didnt get any answers as to why Im not putting weight back on. They doctor mentioned something about muscle wasting because of the higher protein diet? Dad went out to the store and bought me a bunch of the food I used to eat before they made the big changes last year. MMMMMM PURINA! But now we get more wet food than dry food. Mom still gives me my Weruva pouches every now and then but not as much. And I havnt been throwing up! Weird huh? I tired telling them it wasnt my food making me sick, its just those nasty hairballs. Mum got me some stuff to help with them but it smells AWFUL and I refuse to touch it. BLECH!! I guess we will just have to keep watching as see what happens!
Wish I had more time to chat but its time for my nightly cleaning and relaxing on mom's couch before bed! Hope everyone is doing well and I promise we will all try to be around more often!!

Mom has a question & I told her I would come on here and ask all my friends for some imputs - how do you pawrents respond to the "crazy cat person" stereotype? What do you say to someone who comes at you with that?
Its not so much that the title bothers mom because she is pretty crazy about us MOL! Its more that it hurts her that people don't understand her. Many people tell her that we are "just CATS" and she shouldn't be so attached. But to mommy we are much more then that - we are her babies. Mom feels like she is looked down on by other people because of this. Some people make fun of her because when they talk about their kids she talks about us. She has lots of pictures of on her FaceBook just like people have pictures of their kids. The night Auron was sick and had to go to the emergency doctor mom didnt get much sleep and was cranky at work the next day and when she made a comment about how she should have called out to stay home and take care of him one lady she works with was really mean and told mom we are just animals and to get over it! People tell her if she wants a baby she should just adopt one (see my mommy cant have her own babies) and not be attached to us... hmpf!! Sorry this went from just a question to a long note but it just makes me feel bad to see my mommy upset and I knew you guys wouldnt judge me if I talked about it here.
On a different note - have I ever mentioned how much I HATE being groomed? Ugh!! Its the worst - its almost as bad as having my nails clipped! It doesnt hurt its just annoying as all hell! Mom says I have to have it done because I get hairballs and I wont take my laxatone. She even threatened to SHAVE me! Can you believe that! Theres no way she is comin near this beautiful coat with those scary clippers!!!

Hmmmm.. Lemme start off with the not so goods news. The little baby that mommy had planned on bringing home to live with us didnt work out :( Dad and mom went to meet the little boy and he wasnt in the best of health and he had a birth defect that twisted his little front paw. Mom still wanted to bring him home but after consulting our *vet* my pawrents sadly decided that he would be too expensive to take in. Mommy feels terrible about this - she wishes she could have been able to bring him in but we just dont have the thousand or so dawlers that it would have costed to be able to help :((
But the good news is Daddy brought mommy to the Humane Society today and the adopted a new little brother for me and Cheyenne. His name is Auron (mommy is going to make him his own page tomorrow because she only has to work a half day!) and I guess hes cute. But he smells funny and plays with my toys so Im a little unsure about him right now. I know is was bad of me but I hissed at him a few times but I dont wanna hurt him. I just want him to know that I am top cat in this castle! Mom says she hopes we can get along and become good friends!
