Hi efuryone!

Not much new to report except that mama of course misses Greta.

Me and Solomon are doing our best to comfurt mama. It seems to be working fur the most part.
Yesterday, I came ofur to mama and mama thought I could use a hug. So she picked me up and held me. Well I haven't really been a big fan of being held, but I thought I'd see how it felt.

It felt REALLY GOOD. I purred and purred and purred. Mama probably held me and snuggled me fur about 2 or 3 minutes. I nefur knew how good being held and snuggled felt til then. Then a little later I came ofur and she knew I wanted anofur one. So she held and snuggled me again. Oh I really loved that. Now just so you know, I'm bigger than Greta was so it's a little more difficult to hug and snuggle me, but mama did so anyway. I really loved that.

I should also say that I still don't like being picked up and held except when *I* want it, unlike Greta, who loved it no matter when. But at least it made mama miss Greta just a little less.

Of course mama still wants anofur little girl to love. She's not even sure God will bring anofur kitty tho she thinks He will. She doesn't want to pin her hopes on it. She's still sad cuz she couldn't adopt that ofur kitty (Monkee). She said to us she had a dream about adopting a little 9 week old tortie girl who was deaf, but in the dream she couldn't adopt her cuz she had 4 cats. MOL Mama sure has some crazy dreams.

Keep purring and purraying fur God to reveal His will about anofur girl kitty. We'll keep comfurting and enjoying mama in the meantime (and even after anofur kitty arrives, if one does).

sad update

I am sad to say that the Lord has been leading mama to not adopt cute little Monkee...she really wanted this girl since she reminded her so much of Greta....but it just was not meant to be. Fur starters mama was concerned I might hurt her, since she's only 3 months old and I'm a big kitty. I am the "alpha male" of the house and I let the ofur kitties know it. In fact, Solomon and I pick on each ofur nearly every day.

Also, we couldn't find anyone who could make the long journey of bringing Monkee from her home to mama's. It would be expensive fur sure and mama doesn't have that kind of money.

So, it appears that Monkee's current home will be her furever one, altho we could be wrong. Mama is so sad that things didn't work out but she has to trust God. We have asked Monkee's mama to keep us updated on her progress, since she is a cute and sweet girl.

In ofur news...
The Lord has told mama to NOT adopt or look online for anofur kitty, to instead let Him bring the one He wants her to have. Everything in His time. He knows she might not make a good choice and also she does not want to get anofur one just because she misses Greta. We know there are lots of kitties on here who need homes, but since God has told mama to NOT look fur a kitty on her own, she can't start looking on here or anywhere. People have suggested going to shelters or looking online, but God said to not do this. Mama doesn't question God if she can help it. MOL OK?

Now wanna hear about me? I thought so ;)

I'm talking more to mama! She just loves that. She's trying to get me to carry on a conversation with her, like Greta and her did. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. Hey, I'm independent. Respect me! MOL!

Solomon and I do fight but we don't draw blood. Mama always breaks up our fights tho. It does concern her.
OK I need to close this. Pray fur mama and us and we will do the same fur you! ;)

well....

Hello again efuryone,

Well as some of you know one of our Catster furiends mentioned to us a pretty little black kitten girl named Monkee (that's a funny name MOL) who needs a home. Mama has said she'd purray about it and she still does not know what God's will is as to whether or not to accept this kitty. As of this writing the answer seems to be "no" but we need confirmation. :(

She's taken a bit of heat from misunderstanding folks who say mama should go to a shelter and adopt. I will remind efuryone again...we are Christian kitties, and mama is a Christian. She herself has said she would WUV to go to a shelter and take home a new cat. -BUT- and this is the important thing - God has told her to not do this, to instead wait upon HIM to bring the cat He wants her to have...IF He wants her to have one. He knows mama might not make the right choice, and that His timing is perfect. After all Greta hasn't even been gone a week (my sisfur passed away July 4) and maybe it's just too soon.

I also want to remind efuryone that me and Solomon were not shelter kitties. I would've been one if mama didn't adopt me...I'd been to 2 other homes befur coming to live with mama...and my owners up til then were going to dump me outside when a furiend of theirs said they'd take me to a shelter, but check with my mama first. Mama asked the Lord if I was to be hers and He said yes. I've lived her 3 1/2 years now and it has been great.
My brofur Solomon wasn't a shelter kitty either, he lived outside (not by his choice) and came around his foster mama's home fur food daily. Foster mama told my mama about him and they both purrayed and God revealed this was the ofur kitty He wanted mama to have.

We have nuttin against shelters but since God has told our mama to not adopt from there and to let HIM bring a kitty to her, just wanted to clear that up. Please don't hate on her fur that, she is obeying God.

Now that I've said that, mama is not sure she will be able to get this kitty. Monkee is a real cutie I will admit, but she lives fur away, I think her mama said Kansas or Missouri....well my mama lives in NY state, in the suburbs of Albany. Mama has said she doesn't have that much money and noticed transportation costs are anywhere from $120 and up. We don't have that kind of money. :( And we know that of course anyone who could make the trip would need gas money and ofur things. We sure wouldn't expect anyone to do it fur nuttin, not fur that long a trip. We are NOT the kind of kitties or humans who would make someone travel long distances and not be reimbursed financially.

So the odds are not in mama's favor...and mama is thinking maybe the Lord is closing this door. It's kinda sad cuz mama really likes this kitty, but she knows and I do Miss Monkee will STILL find a grrrrrrreat home. We would like little miss Monkee to keep in touch with us so we can see her progress! Meanwhile maybe someone else out there would love this precious girl.

Bye fur now efuryone.
Still purraying,
Daniel Baniel

 

purrayers needed

Hi kitties and humans,

Well mama is asking fur your purrayers fur clarity regarding something.
She thinks the Lord may be saying that He will bring her anofur kitty and to name her Serena, but she is not sure. My mom is not just bipolar but she has ADHD and her mind is overactive. Sometimes she thinks she hears from God but is not always 100% sure. If it is true, mama would love to meet Serena when (or if) she arrives. But she doesn't want to pin her hopes on something false.

So those of you who are Christian kitties and humans, can you agree in purrayer with us (me & Solomon are Christian kitties too) fur God to clarify Himself in this matter? Tank you!

Mama thinks anofur male wouldn't be good fur us since 1) I'm a dominant pursonality and 2) we have a small home, and 3 males could lead to fights.
If God really is going to bring anofur girl and mama is to call her Serena, mama would love anofur black kitty or a calico or a tortie. But like we've said, it's up to the LORD.

Oh also I'm getting to be a real talker. I talked up a storm with mama this morning. I'm especially talkative when I'm hungry. Any of you get that way? Solomon however is a quiet kitty. The only time he really talks is when he's traveling. Even then he does it just fur a while then stops.

OK I gotta go and take a nap...

Angel? and comfurting mama

July 7th 2012 4:23 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ]

Hi again,

Well we have a little update on mama's getting anofur kitty. Gamma has offered to give us Angel, a pretty 9 y.o. girl she owns....mama does know about Angel and she loves her...but she is not sure if this is what God wants. Fur starters, mama is kinda hesitant about adopting an older kitty only cuz she just lost a kitty and doesn't want to have to put anofur one to sleep fur a long time...and since Greta was only 12 when she died AND Buster was 8...she is fearful an older cat will not live much longer and she just isn't ready fur the heartbreak of putting anofur one to sleep yet.

Angel might not want to travel to anofur home...she might not adjust well...
she might not get along with me and Solomon either...

Also, God may not want mama to have Angel. He may not want mama to have anofur girl kitty at all.

So, while we are all grrrrateful to Gamma fur her suggestion, again I say what mama says: IT'S UP TO THE LORD.

Now that's that taken care of...on to comfurting mama. I'm talking more now. Mama sure likes that. She's playing with us lots. We found Greta's red ball, and we chase that sometimes but not as much as Greta did. Lately it's been hot and mama gave us ice cubes to play with. We weren't too interested in those but she also put ice cubes in our water....mmmmm those are SO nice and cool! At night we both sit on the bed, tho I like to look out the window most of the time. Solomon WUVS to sit next to mama's pillow and he often puts his head on mama's face. Mama says that feels SO GOOD....she said she never wants to leave him.

Well I'm glad we are helping mama out...tho I do miss having a sisfur to pick on! MOL OK bye fur now.

Daniel Baniel

Hi again efuryone,

Well mama is already saying she's ready to take in anofur girl kitty. She said she will always miss Greta but she's ready to fill that void and wants anofur girl NOW. (sigh) But she ALSO said she's not about to go and pick one out, because sf two things: 1) she needs to know if it's God's will, and 2) if she doesn't hear from Him then she won't do anything. My mama is a Christian lady and she told me and Solly that she wanted SO MUCH to get anofur boy kitty when Buster died (whoever he was), but God said not to adopt one and that He'd put whatefur kitties He wanted her to have in her path. Little did she know He'd send TWO boys! ;)

I'm starting to pick on Solomon a little more now that I don't have Greta to pick on anymore. But guess what? Solomon is starting to fight back. Mama always intervenes and stops any fights. Gee, I can't harass anyone without them giving me a fight! That's no fun.

Me and Solomon are trying to comfurt mama, tho she isn't crying as much now. We are such good kitties that we know mama needs us now more than ever.

Please pray along with us fur God's will as to whether or not we will have anofur sisfur. Tanks!

Daniel Baniel

 

We are down to 2...

My sisfur is gone....mama said she had to put her to sleep cuz she was dying...she said she was dehydrated and weighed a little over 4 lbs. (she should weigh 9).

So now me and Solomon are the only 2 kitties in the house. It's too soon to see if we will have a 3rd kitty again, and is completely up to the LORD...but meanwhile me and Solomon will comfurt mama as best we can. I don't have anyone to pick on now! MOL

Please keep my mama in purrayers....this will be a hard day fur her fur years to come....

DDP again! Already?

I can't believe it, I just come back and next thing I know I'm DDP!
You folks at Catster sure have good taste. MOL

I didn't mention that during my sorta "vacation" at Gamma's, mama noticed I respond well to the name "Kitty" and she thinks that may have been my name befur she adopted me. What do you think?

 

I am back with anofur entry!

April 21st 2012 3:53 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ]

I know it's been SO long since you got a diary entry from me, MOL!

You can blame mama partly fur that. Yes we got anofur (used) puter so that wasn't the problem. The problem is mama's depressed and didn't even think to come here and check my paw mails or gift box. So to those of you who sent me stuff, TANK YOU and yell at mama, not me, fur not acknowledging them! I need to get better control of my human!

While I was gone away (from Catster), mama took me and my siblings to Gamma's house. Gamma had hip replacement surgery and needed mama to care fur her, so fur 3 weeks we stayed and helped out. We got along fur the most part...Gamma has young kitties (like 8 or 10 months old) living there and they are lively wild things. I tried to play with them but they ran away. They're partly feral and 2 of the 3 hide from humans and kitties too but love when the Gamma gives them treats.

My brofur was attacked again, but I didn't do it this time. While we were at Gamma's, the mother of the young uns, named Susie, picked on Solomon biting his tail and back. It was so bad he had to have stitches on his tail. THEN during Easter weekend mama smelled a foul odor on Solomon and 1 of his wounds abcessed and got green pus (YUCK) built up. More stitches fur Solly, flushing of the wound, plus a drain to remove any leftover gunk. He's still healing and next Saturday will have all his stitches removed. I feel bad for my brofur, he takes a beating from kitties and I know I have been hard on him too. I still try occasionally but mama makes sure to not let me hurt him.

OK kitties and humans, mama says she wants to go to bed. Bye fur now.

 

diary pick today, yay! And some not so good news

January 30th 2012 12:46 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

Well mama found out I was a diary pick Saturday and now again today! I gotta tell you about my day Sunday.

When she finally let me out of that room I was SO HAPPY. I was the happiest kitty in the whole world, cuz my mama was home again and I sure missed her. I kept snuggling and asking to be petted and loved, cuz I got NUTTIN ofur the weekend and I deserved lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of extra attention. I still do! MOL!

Mama did take Solomon cuz he & I had a small fight again. I thought he was hurting mama so I ran over and attacked him. Mama took my bites on his behalf and even had to go to the dr. cuz of them. She had to get a Tetanus shot. She said I was a bad kitty biting her like that. I'm just doing what comes naturally.

So today I am again a diary pick and this time mama acknowledged it. Only one BIG BIG BIG problem. We have NO PUTER. When mama came home she went to turn on her puter and it didn't come on. :( So then she used her backup laptop and it died during a Windows update. We have anofur (used) one on the way, but this is just awful that we have no puter at home. Mama has to transcribe my entries when she has time on her cell phone. And that keyboard (or is it a thumb-board?) is pretty little. So we will talk to you when we can.

BTW mama saw Gamma's kitties but only briefly. They stay hidden in of all places, under her kitchen sink. Then fur some reason Gamma got upset when mama was going to try and get a look at Ginger, the one kitty of Susie's litter that is furiendly and Gamma said NO. (HISSSSSSS GAMMA!) Gamma said leave them alone. We tried to tell her that these kitties NEED to get used to being around ofur people besides her but she wouldn't listen. To be honest, my furiends, mama and I don't think these kitties are going to be adoptable. They're too scared of humans. They run and hide when people are near. Two out of the three won't let anyone touch them or come near them. Mama saw each one fur A FEW SECONDS. Out of a whole weekend that was it. They immediately ran back under that stupid kitchen sink. Howefur we believe Gamma may have some mild dementia or something because she doesn't comprehend some of the things we say (and not just about kitties). She furgets if someone called her 30 minutes ago, says she does things that she nefur did (or thinks she did or said some things), etc. So Gamma isn't really capable of caring fur these kitties. We're afraid they will probably be returned to the wild, unless we can find a foster mom who can tame them more. But with NOBODY around to help it's impossible. :(

OK I gotta go.
