First, I'd like to wish everyone a Merry Belated Christmas. Sorry I'm late, but mom had knee surgery on the 23rd and today ws the first day she was able to sit at a computer. Second, I'd like to say THANK YOU to Catster for picking me as the Diary Pick on the 24th. I'm sorry I missed it that day, but I am extremely honored that I was picked, especially since I think I lead a boring life. I'm glad that Catster feels I have enough excitement to share with everyone. And thanks to everyone for your congrats:)

So, how was everyone's Christmas? Mine was uneventful, and that's just the way I like it. Mom waited until everyone opened their gifts, including the dogs, then she brought me my gifts to my room and opened them with just me and her. She knows that's the way I like to do it. I got an entire stocking filled with all kinds of toys. They were all pink which is my favorite color:) I actually played with a couple of my toys a little. But what I loved most was the catnip that grandma got for me. Mom sprinkled some of that on my toys and on the carpet and I rolled around in it like a nut. I just LOVE catnip! Grandma knows what I like!!:D That is actually what got me all excited and made me want to play with a couple of my toys. Mom was really good about keeping Echo away from my room cause she tried to come in a couple of times, but mom wouldn't let her. Mom played with me for a little, but she couldn't play long cause her knee hurt. That was pretty much how our week has been. I'd either lay on the bed with mom or down on the sofa with mom while she'd watch TV, sleep or read with her ice machine on her knee. Poor mom, having surgery over the holiday:( But she had to do it when she could get the time off of work.

On another note, as you can see from my title of this entry, I got out of going to the mountains! Mom thought about it and she decided that I can stay home for this trip. Kelsey is going to come take care of me Thurday, Carol on Friday and Brett on Saturday. Mom comes home on Sunday so I'm covered for all the days. Boy am I glad cause I really didn't want to go. It's not that I don't want to go be with mom and dad, it's more the car ride than anything. I think MAYBE once I would get there I would like it, but it's the getting there that would stress me out too much. But now I don't have to worry about it. I get to stay home and relax in my own home:) Yeah, I'll miss my family, but they'll be back on Sunday so it's not even a week. They've been gone longer and I survived.

Well, that's been about all that's been going on with me. I hope everyone had a good Christmas. Have a Happy New Year. Be safe out there!

 

Juniata trip... I don't think so!

Last night mom tried to take my picture in front of the tree with Echo and Chloe. What a joke that was. Chloe was okay, but Echo... Yeah right! She wouldn't let me alone. No matter what mom did, she just wouldn't sit still for 2 seconds and not bother me so mom could take the picture. Finally, mom gave up and let me go because she said the picture wouldn't turn out anyway cause I looked miserable, which I was by the way. If the pup would have left me alone, I would have been fine cause I would have snooped around the presents, but nope, Echo had to bother me the entire time. Puppies!

Later in the evening, I was sitting on the sofa with mom and dad and they were talking about going to the cabin over New Year's and they are talking about taking me with them. I DON'T THINK SO! You know me, I like my little home here and anywhere outside of it I just freak out! Mom said she thinks I would like going someplace different and I wouldn't have to stay in the crate either. She's just worried about the ride cause she knows I hate cars. Mom said she just feels bad because they go to the cabin so much and I'm always left at home alone. Yeah, Kelsey comes and checks on me, but other than that, I'm alone. But that's okay with me, really. But mom really seems to think that I would like it. I don't know though. What do you all think about this trip to the cabin? Give me a shout out and let me know your thoughts about it.

 

The Stand Off

Last night mom was in the computer room doing some cyber shopping for Christmas and I was laying on the bed just chilling. Guess who as discovered that she can jump up on the bed? Yep, you guessed it, that darn pup Echo. So she jumps up on the bed and stands there, staring at me. She takes a couple steps toward me, trying to push me on. But I don't move. She takes a couple more steps. Now I stand up and look her straight in the eye. She takes a few more steps and drops her head, never taking her eyes off of me, like she's trying to intimidate me or something. Well, I'm here to tell you, I might have been intimidated by her in the beginning, but not anymore. This is MY bed and I am NOT giving it up to a pup so I was standing my ground! So we just stood there, standing... staring. Finally, she decided that I wasn't going to give in and she wasn't going to have any fun with me so she jumped down off the bed. VICTORY!!! Chalk one up for pussycats all across the world:D That pup will learn that standing off against this kitty is the wrong thing to do and it's a game she'll never win!

 

Hi All!

I just wanted to say Hi to everyone! Not much has been going on here. The pup has been terrorizing me, but that's to be expected. Mom has been really good in making her keep her distance. The three of us can actually lay on the bed together with mom and the puppy doesn't pounce on me:) I've been maintaining my weight, so that is making mom happy, although she still thinks I'm too thin. She still monitors my pee and poop like a mad person... for real! I cuddle with mom every night when she goes to bed. I wait for her to get in her sleeping position, then I get in mine, curled up right against her side and I purr both of us to sleep. She tells me that she just can't fall asleep that easlily if I'm on there. My family is going to the mountains this weekend so I guess she won't be sleeping to well and neither will I. I'm always a bit nervous when my family is gone. Yes, they always have someone checking on me and it's only like a day that I don't see them, but still, I don't like being alone, even if it's only for a day. Mom said she'd take me along, but she knows that would be even worse for me and she's definitely right about that! I never like to leave the house! Oh yeah, mom said she's going to try to take a picture of me with fall type decorations for my page. Good luck with that mom! Thanks to Smudge's mom for my pawsome Thanksgiving page!!

So, as you can see, not a whole lot happening around here. Just tolerating the pup and chilling with mom. Oh yeah, mom entered a couple pictures of me in the World's Coolest Cat & Dog Show so if you don't mind, please vote for me. I doubt I'll get many votes, but mom thinks I'm cute so I guess that's all that matters:)

That darn pup!

So last night I was laying on the bed and I decided to go into my room for a bite to eat. I jumped down off the bed and BAM! That darn pup pounced right on top of me. I didn't even realize she was in the room cause mom doesn't usually let her in there (acutally, I don't know that mom knew she was in there). Well, I let that pup knew I didn't appreciate being pounced on and I gave out a hiss and I smacked her in the face with my paw. She can be glad I don't have claws or I would have done some damage that's for sure. I shocked her enough though that I was able to make my get away and I jumped back on the bed. Mom finally saw what was going on then carried me to my room and put me in so I could eat. Thank goodness! That pup better watch her step cause there's more where that came from. I might be old, but I'm still mighty:)

 

Good News!

The vet called mom last night and we got good news! He said my bloodwork was pawsome! He didn't see anything abnormal at all. Unfortunately that doesn't explain why I'm losing weight though. He told mom that sometimes older cats develope a form of lympthomia and it can't always be detected until a tumor or lump forms. He said he could do radiographs or ultrasounds, but even then, unless it's large enough he might not see it. He also said that it might just be because I'm getting older and my body is changing that I'm losing the weight. He did say he would still like a urine sample so she still thinks she's going to get that from me... MOL:D He told mom just too keep a close eye on my weight and eating habits and he'll recheck me in February when I go in for my shots. See, I tried to tell her I was okay!

So, last night I hung out on the sofa with mom, dad and the pooches. Echo was funny. She was laying on the sofa beside dad, but she was facing me. She would creep closer and closer to where I was (I was at my usual spot on the top of the sofa). Mom kept telling her "no" and she would crawl back a little. Then when she thought mom wasn't looking, she'd creep forward again. It was hilarious! I knew she wasn't going to hurt me so I wasn't freaking out. After a while she got bored cause I didn't do anything then she went off to play with Chloe. Dogs!

Mom is going to the mountains again, but she said they'll be home tomorrow. That's good cause I do miss them when they're gone. At least I do get some peace and quiet from the mutts!

 

It happened!

So that talk I told you about, you know, about me going to the vet... it happened! Mom took me and Echo to the vet last night and of course, I was terrified! Mom's friend Nancy went along to help since mom had to take Echo for her puppy shots. As usual, I cried the whole way down. When we got in the room and mom took me out of the carrier, I sat on the table like a statue. She said I looked like a spinx. The vet checked me out and said physically I looked great. He didn't feel any tumors or anything irregular on me. Next came the worse part, they took me in another room and stuck me with a nasty needle to take my blood! I cried really loud and mom said she could hear me the whole way in her room. I was so upset I just clung to the tech lady for a while then I finally went back to mom. I was kind of mad at mom for making me go to the vet in the first place, but I know she was only doing it for my own good. I did lose 7 ounces since March. The only thing the vet couldn't test was my urine cause I went to the bathroom in my carrier on the way down. The vet said I could have stayed there overnight for them to get it but mom knew better than that. They also said that she can bring me back down, but problem is, I always pee in my carrier on the way to the vet. So that only leaves one choice, mom has to try and get it at home. Good luck with that mom! Anyway, after mom calmed me a little, she gave me to Nancy who held me while the doctor examined Echo and gave her the shots she needed. We finally got to leave and I was quite the whole ride home. Nancy couldn't believe how quite I was. Mom told her that I knew I was going home and I am always quite on the way home. I just hope I don't have to go back there anytime soon. The vet is suppose to call mom with the results of my blood tests so I'll let you all know how I make out. If she ever catches my urine then they'll check that too, but like I said, good luck with that!

 

Oh no, not the vet!

I overheard mom talking to dad last night and she said I might have to go to the vet! She said I lost two ozs. since my last weight in (a week ago) and she's concerned cause I lost 5 ozs. in a month. She's waiting on the vet to call her back to see what he wants to do. I told her I'm okay, that my thyroid test is good, but she's still worried. I really hope the vet doesn't want me to come in cause I really, really don't like the vet. It's nothing personal, I just hate leaving the house... period! Keep your paws crossed that I don't have to go in. I'll let you know what happens.

On another note, this morning I was in the bathroom with mom cause I didn't see the pup anywhere. Next thing I know, hear comes the pup! We had a stare down for a few minutes, but mom told the pup not to chase me and guess what? She didn't. I walked right past her and into my crate and she didn't do anything. That really impressed me and I was happy to see that mom can control that little rascal and that the pup doesn't want to eat me!

 

Me v. Pup

So last night I was sitting on my usual spot on top of the sofa with the family watching TV and mom and dad were doing a real good job at keeping the pup on the floor. However, the next thing I know, BAM! He's the pup, on the sofa, right in my face! Well, I might be a wussy pussy, but I left her know how I felt and I let out a big HISS and smacked her in the face! Mom was shocked and told dad she never heard me hiss before. Darn right I hissed. No pup is going to push me around! After that, the pup starred at me, but didn't try to come after me. I guess I showed her:)

On another note, mom called the vet, yet again, and he said as long as I don't lose a lot of weight (like 6-8 oz) she's not to worry. He really doesn't want her bringing me to the office right now cause I'm already stressed with the pup and I stress bad enough when I have to go to the vet he doesn't want me to have two stresses at once. Thank you Dr. Zimmerman:) I told mom I'm fine and now the doctor told her that again too.
