Big Snow

February 7th 2010 11:29 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Hello all! I just wanted to drop a quick line to let everyone know what's been going on here. First and foremost, we had a huge snow storm here over the weekend. I heard mom say we had over 18"! She took me out once and sat me down in the snow and I freaked out and ran to the door to come back in the house and that was that. So, it's safe to say you won't see any photos of me in the snow. But you can see plenty of my dog Chloe since she just loves the snow. I'll just never understand that because it's cold, it's wet and it's just blah! Anyway, the other big news is that my mom is having surgery on her hand. Something about carps being in her tunnels or something like that. She said she can't type for 5-6 weeks so you won't see any posts from me during that time. So I want to wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day and Happy St. Patty's Day in advance, plus give a special thanks to my friend Smudge's mom who always does my page so nice for me and my mom since we are so computer stupid when it comes to that. Smudge's mom is just the bestest!

My mom did post a couple new photos today from Christmas (yeah I know a little late, but better late than never) so you can check them out if you want. Well, I gotta run. Got to pick on the hermit crabs that mom brought home from work while she's off. I'll update you when mom is able to type again. Have a good one!

 

Mom back at work:(

Well, my vacation is over:( For those of you who didn't know, my mom had surgery on her hand back in February and she was off work for a month. I was loving it because that meant she was home with me all day and I was out of the crate! I only had to go in a couple times to use the bathroom. I would go in on my own to eat and drink, but I wasn't stuck in there for hours while they were at work. But now, mom and dad are back at work so I'm back to being in the crate when they're not home:( I know it's my own fault for going to the potty on the floor, but I still don't like it. Oh well, what's a kitty to do.

Sorry we didn't get St. Patty's Day photos up. Mom can't find ours from last year so she's using our spring photos. She promises to have new ones soon. She's just been busy with going back to work and all.

Let's see, what's been going on with me. Oh yeah, I did make a couple trips to the vet. I had my yearly check-up and dental done. When I was there, the vet took my blood to do a "senior panel". I guess that's a nice way of saying I'm old and need more tests. At any rate, the vet didn't like something in my blood so mom had to give me these pills, which I hated by the way, and they take me back two weeks later. Well, you all know I hate to leave the house to begin with, but to go to the vet is even worse so I was seriously stressing! The vet did say my numbers were a little better, but he still wasn't happy with them and he always wasn't happy with my weight loss. I only lost a little in a year, but mom has to monitor me every week and if I loose more, I have to have more tests. Well, let me tell you, I'll be eating like a fiend cause I don't want to go again!!!!!! Mom said she thinks it's because I was out of my crate more with her being off and all. The vet said that could be, but she still needs to monitor me and I have to go back in 6 months for another blood test. I guess it's better to be safe than sorry just in case.

Other than that, not much going on around here. I hope all my pals are enjoying the nice change in weather. It looks nice outside and I'll enjoy it just fine from inside:)

 

Diary Pick of Day!!

Wow, can you believe it? I got picked for Diary of the Day!!! I was so surprised, especially since my life is not that exciting. I am honored that Catster picked me and thank you to everyone who congratulated me. I am sooooooo excited I'm doing backflips!! Mom said I deserve it because I am a special kitty and she loves me very, very much! But mom's are suppose to say those things. It is really cool and I get to feel important and get all kinds of emails from people and make new friends which I really like because as you all know, I'm a really shy kitty and don't make friends well on my own so something like this really helps me come out of my shell. So thank you Catster for making me Diary Pick of the Day and for helping me make more Caster friends!

 

Hello all!

I know, I know, it's been about furever since I've written, but a lot has been going on in my household so I apologize. I'll try to bring everyone update to date with the Reader's Digest version.

On April 7th my Brett was in a serious industrial accident at work. He was in the hospital for 12 days and had 5 surgeries in 9 days. He got to come home for a few weeks, but went back to the hospital last Friday (5/28) and they amputated his 2nd and 3rd toe and 1/2 of his big toe on his right foot:( They also took out a large portion of skin from the bridge of his foot and he may have to have a skin graph in a few weeks, but hopefully not. He was released on Sunday (5/30) which was his 21st birthday so needless to say, he wasn't much in the celebrating mood... poor Brett.

Mom and dad were gone for a week in early May after they knew Brett would be okay for a little. They had a 50th wedding anniversary trip planned for dad's mom and dad and they took them to California along with Matt, Lauren, Linda and Keith. The visited my Ali while they were out there. So I was by myself for a week. Kelsey and Barb came by and checked on me everyday. I did get a little lonely and I was VERY happy when my family came home! My Chloe stayed with Brett for a few days, then she went to stay at Tanner's then came home the day mom and dad came home. I was happy to see her believe it or not.

When they got back, my dad had knee replacement surgery on his right knee a couple days later and was in the hospital for a fews days so I didn't see him or mom much. Mom spent a lot of time at the hospital with dad.

Now dad is home all the time and mom is working and doing all the work inside and outside in the yard so I still don't see her much. I can tell it is wearing mom down so when I do get to spend time with her, I cuddle with her and purr a lot because I know that makes her feel good:)

So that is my exicing life... NOT! Mom said once our pool is open she's making me get on the raft for a summer picture so when our friend changes our page for the summer we have a new pictures. I told her... I DON'T THINK SO!!! But if that happens, that will be something VERY exciting and I'm sure I'll have much to write about then.

I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day and try to stay cool during these hot days. Meow at you later:)

 

Summertime

Well, I know it's summertime. You know why? Because my family is gone all the time. Every weekend I'm by myself:( They leave Friday after work and don't come home until later on Sunday. I know mom would take me with her if I wasn't such a wussy pussy, but if she took me with her, I would pee on her before they got out of the development and I would probably have a heart attack before we got to where we were going so believe me, it's better that they leave me at home. Mom always makes sure that someone comes to check on me and clean my litter box though. And really, they're only gone for like 48 hours so it's not that bad. Last weekend was a little scary though because it was the 4th of July and I could hear the fireworks going off all over the place and it kind of scared me, but I got over it. I was happy when mom got home though:)

Hey, check out my new summer page. It's is pawsome! My friend Smudge's mom does it for me and it's always so cool!! Thanks Smudge's mom!!!!

Well, I gotta run and take a nap. You know us cats, always wanting a cat nap... LOL :D

 

Play time

The other day I played with mom. Yeah, I know, that's rare for me. Poor mom, she had out about a dozen toys trying to play with me and I started to feel bad because I wasn't playing with her so I finally gave in. She had this one toy that had these long, stringy things on it that was kind of cool so that was the one I chose to bat around and play with. She threw it around the bed and all over my head and around my body. I have to admit, it was kind of fun:) I know mom would play with me a lot more if I showed interest in playing, but me, I just like to lay around and be pet from time to time. My idea of playing is biting and kicking, but mom and dad, they don't find that "fun" so we don't play that way much. Mom will play that way with me from time to time, but dad, no way! He gets mad and won't even pet me when I try to do that. Guess he just doesn't understand me... men! Anyway, it was fun to play a bit with mom, especially since they'll be gone for a few days. Yep, they're headed back to the mountains and I'll be here all by my lonesome again, but I really don't mind. Of course, Kelsey will come to visit and take care of me and I'll be snoozing. The good thing is, no storms in the forecast and, when mom gets back, I get even more attention than usual:)

 

Outside...

Yesterday mom thought it would be a good idea to take me outside to get some fresh air. Well, you know how I feel about that! As soon as she started walking toward that door, I knew what was coming. I started meowing like crazy. Mom kept telling me it was alright and that I needed to calm down, but I wouldn't listen. She took me up near the pool and Megan and Chloe were swimming. I didn't think my mom would make me go in the pool, but sometimes you just never know with these humans. But I was relieved when she sat in the chair on the deck by the pool instead. Mom held me and pet me to calm me down and I have to admit, it worked. I only cried for a little, but then I was getting interested in everything going on around me. The birds were flying around. Megan and Chloe were playing. Chloe came over to me a couple of times to let me know everything was okay and I didn't need to be afraid. I saw some butterflies and bees buzzing around. I have to admit, it was pretty cool and mom was being sure nothing would hurt me. I still let out a little cry every now and then just so mom knew I wasn't thrilled and get any bright ideas about doing anything more with me then letting me sit on her lap. I stayed out there with her for about 30 minutes but then I started panting because I was nervous and mom didn't want me getting so upset that I got sick so she put me down and I followed her to the door to go back in the house. So that was my little adventure outside. It was nice to go outside for a change, I just wish I wasn't such a wussy pussy so I wasn't afraid of everything and could actually enjoy it.

Wow, I can't believe I was chosen as Diary Pick of the Day!! I don't lead that exciting of a life and to be chosen is such an honor... thank you Catster! Thank you to all my pals for all your congrats. It really makes me feel good to know that I'm still noticed from time to time, specially being a wussy pussy and all... MOL:D I'll try and give you more adventures to read about, even if it's only about stalking the houseplants! Thanks again:)

 

I'm getting old...

August 19th 2010 5:05 am
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ]

Today is my birthday and boy am I getting old... I'm 12 today! Mom said it's so hard at birthdays and Christmas for me because I don' like treats and I don't play with toys so she never knows how to make them special. One thing she does know I like is my cat nip and she said tonight when she gets home, I'll get plenty of it! She doesn't like giving it to me when no one is home because she's afraid I'll become a tiger and tear up the house... MOL:D So for today, I'll just be snoozing with my doggie Chloe and relaxing til mom gets home.

Last night wasn't a good night. I had to go to the vet and I HATE the vet! It's not that I hate the vet as a person, I just hate the idea of the vet. Or anytime I have to leave the house for that matter. I cried the whole way down and the entire time I was there. I didn't have to stay long which was nice. I just had to get blood taken from my neck for my thyroid test. Mom said they'll call her today with the results. It sure would be a good birthday present to find out that everything is okay. Dad thought it was funny how quite I was on the way home. That's because I know once we're back in the car I'm on my way back home so there's no reason to cry. I was very happy to be home and my Chloe was just as happy to see me too!

Well, I'm going to go and curl up for a cat nap:)

 

Day after

It is the day after my birthday and I must say, I don't feel any different. Mom gave me some catnip when she got home last night, but she didn't get home until later in the evening. Poor mom never sat down until like 1030pm, but she still spent time with me. Dad let me sleep on the bed way before that though and he did wish me a happy birthday which was a surprise cause I didn't think he remembered. The most important thing that happened on my birthday was that the vet gave me good news... my thyroid is right in the middle of the band which is purrfect! Both mom and I were very happy about that:D This weekend will be a quiet one for me cause my family is going to the mountains again. My is having a memorial for her dad and burying his ashes. It's been a year since he passed away. I can't believe it has been that long. It seems not long ago mom was curl up crying and I was curled up beside her trying to make her feel better. I still curl up beside her, but at least she's not crying anymore. Well, I gotta run and use the little kitty's room. I hope everyone has a good weekend and I'll talk to you all next week!
