I know it's been a while since I have talked to you. I'm so sorry. Mama's been sick, and she's been resting on her off days so my diary posts have been delayed.
But I do have piccies of 2 of the 3 kittens Gamma is fostering, as well as the mama. Mama already has a home since Gamma's keeping her, but the babies are getting socialized and learning to accept humans. They'll be getting their shots, and spay/neuter surgeries soon. After that, they should be ready fur new homes.
Please furgive the pictures, I know you can only see their backs fur the most part, but at least you have an idea what they look like! MOL
1st is Rascal...he's dark grey, almost a black color with what looks like ghost markings:
Next is Ginger, sitting to the left of her mama Susie:
Gamma couldn't get a pic of Daisy but she will keep trying.
Ginger was named fur her gorgeous ginger markings. She is the first to try new things and was the first to eat off a fork.
Rascal is kinda shy, but playful.
IF....and this is huge IF....IF mama & us can get to see Gamma soon, we will be able to provide lots more info and piccies of these cuties. Then you can decide if you want to have one of these as your new best furiend!
OK that's enuf of that. Wanna hear some news on me? No? Too bad, yer gonna anyway. MOL j/k
This morning mama had to go to the baffroom and she locked me in the bedroom so I wouldn't pick on Greta. It was around 3am and she knows that is my prime hour fur attacking Greta. So what did I do to express my disapproval? Throw myself against the door of course! MOL! When Mama came back she was mad. She shut the door and said "don't make a fool of yourself throwing yourself against the door cuz it won't do any good!" I wanted to tell her, "Well it got your attention didn't it?" But instead I decided to HISS at her. Mama hissed back! WHAAAAAA? I gotta admit, kitties, mama hisses purrty good, MOL. She knows I want to go in the living room and pounce on my sisfur in the wee hours. I do that when I start to get hungry, and since mama won't feed us our breakfast until 5am or later, I gotta do SOMETHING to release my frustration!
Well my furiends I need to close this. Please contact my mama if you're interested in Ginger, Rascal, or Daisy. We'll try to get more info and piccies on all these little babies soon!

Catster's makin me life tuff...MOL
This is a reply to me mateys who commented on me ofur post....Catster wouldn't let me reply....Aaarrgh...anyway
Me lads, they're (the kittens) such young 'uns I wouldn't make 'em do any hard work yet til they're older. I have me eyes on treasure, and they're too young to do any workin', let alone walkin' any planks. 'Tis a tough job to run a ship, with a capable crew...Cap'n Gamma doesn't know their ages but methinks they're about 3 months old.
PS How's me pirate talk? MOL

Got no news on me, mateys...'cept fur the fact that mama is sick with a cold...so don't go makin' her swab the deck or walk the plank...MOL
Mateys, I need yer help....Gamma is trying to socialize and tame the kittens on her ship...she tries to pet em when she comes near they run away like a scared sailor. They're currently runnin' somewhere on her ship (in her home MOL) but want to go outside since they claw at the windows. My cap'n (mama) thinks maybe we should just let these young pirates t' be off into the seas to run their own ship....what think ye, mateys? Mama & Gamma are just arrrghhhhing ofur this! Come n' help yer pirates in need!
UPDATE: Since we can't reply to comments (we're getting error 3a) I will tell you the kittens are 3 months old.

Well I think it's time you got some news as to how I'M doing...MOL! I am driving mama nuts cuz I like to pick on my sisfur. Greta is constantly hissing at me and she even razzes me! HMMMPHHH!!
But I am also mellowing out as I get older....last night I was strolling on the stovetop, someplace I'm not s'posed to be, but I go there anyway (hey, I love my freedom!!) and was crying and meowing. Mama asked me if I wanted to be held and I said "yes" in the way we kitties do. She picked me up and HELD me.
AND I WUVED IT!
Normally I do not want to be held, but I'm getting so I want it from time to time. She held me fur at least 2 minutes or more, and I enjoyed it so much I purred and purred! My previous records fur being held were around 30 seconds, so this was quite a feat. Or should I say feet? MOL
Yes, this freedom lovin' guy is getting a soft spot in his heart for a good long hug and cuddle from mama.... mama says "Awwwwww"
OK want news on Susie & the babies? Don't have any, really, except that Susie was given a low dose of Tramadol fur 4 days. Today's the last day of that.
The only ofur news is that Gamma wanted to round up the babies to go to a rabies clinic in Shinglehouse, PA but they kept running away. DARN. Well they still will need shots so maybe she can bring them in soon. Her "furiends" have stopped speaking to her and they unfriended her from Facebook - these are the same "furiends" who unfriended mama too - but befur they did so they wrote a snotty post indirectly referring to Gamma saying "don't like me because you want something." They think Gamma only stayed furiends with them so they could help her. WRONG! They are so moody and now they're not helping her out. With furiends like that who needs enemies, right? MOL
OK better get going here and go look out the window.

Susie went to the vet today fur shots & surgery. She tested FIV negative. Didn't get a shot fur it cuz it cost too much ($45!!)
BUT....Susie got spayed. Turns out she WAS pregnant again, but the vet said she wasn't far along so it was not a problem. Gamma didn't say if they had to abort any babies but they probably did. :( As we said in Susie's case it was fur the best since Gamma has 3 kittens to find homes fur. We also found out there's a 2nd tomcat roaming Gamma's area....a big black & white one who she said probably has a home & looks well fed.
The kittens were nowhere to be found this morning, altho they ARE in the house. Therefore they didn't go to the vet. We advised her to keep them inside. Gamma said they miss their mama. She also says she figures Susie will probably want no part of them now, since she heard of anofur mama cat who acted the same way after her spaying. Fur the record, we are claiming Susie as ADOPTED by Gamma, she said she'll probably keep her. So Susie is not adoptable but her babies are. Now they just need shots & spay/neuter, then they'll be ready fur homes! If we efur get pics of them we will share here.

No real news to report on about Susie and her babies....tomorrow is the big day when she goes and gets spayed!!! Gamma thinks Susie might be preggers again but we told her, Susie goes outside so it could be worms, or it could be ofur things. If she is preggers, the vet will abort the kittens (sorry to gross anyone out, but it is in the best interests of all since Gamma still has 3 kittens to find homes fur) so that will stop. Rascal may be going too, so he can get shots. Maybe even the girls!
No news on Becca either....she has not been seen at all since her disappearance 2 weeks ago. We hope she has not gone on to heaven, but if so, she'll have lots of ofur kitties waiting there!
So please PURR FUR GAMMA TO BE ABLE TO GET SUSIE INSIDE TODAY, AND IN HER CARRIER TOMORROW FUR HER SPAYING!

I saw this game on my furiend Tyson's page and even tho I wasn't tagged, I decicded to play anyway! I don't do tagging stuff so EFURYONE is welcome to copy & paste this into your own diary and answer!
1. Your Meowmy or Dad is asleep and you are furry hungry; You would.....
Pick on my sisfur and chase her, then try biting her rump. She screams and growls, scaring mama awake!
2. You are furry sleepy and are sleeping on a top ledge; Meowmy or Dad would say..........
"Hi bud, what'cha doin'? You're up pretty high."
3. You saw a dog who wants to chase something; what's the furry furst thing you would you say or do?
Well I don't see too many doggies, and I nefur seen one chasing anything, but I'd probably be looking intently out the window with my tail swishing rapidly back and forth!
4. Your Meowmy or Dad wants you to stop tearing the furniture. You would...
Listen to mama this one time, stop and then come back to do it again when she's not looking. MOL
5. Your Kitty Kat emergency box, full of fur fashions, is locked. Oh No! You would....
Say "I don't need any box of fashions, I'm already gorgeous as is!" MOL!
Let us know if you play along!

MRRRROWWWWW! I am DDP again!!! Oh I am so so so happy!
We got some cooked chicken pieces and they were so good. I wuv chicken. (Mama eats lots of chicken, MOL)
Tomorrow, Monday, is my sisfur Greta's birthday, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY GREAT GRETA! She will be 12.
Gamma's making progress with the kittens. They came in fur their meals and they let her pet them. Such good news! They'll make grrreat kitties fur some lucky human(s). Wednesday Susie is going to be spayed, and Gamma's thinking of taking Rascal (& maybe his sisfurs) fur his 1st round of shots, and deworming. Susie will need deworming too, and she'll get all her shots befur surgery. She already got her rabies shot courtesy of a clinic last week. The kittens were too young so they didn't get them yet.
No news at all on Becca. Gamma's called her but no response. She's thinking that the worst has happened and she has gone to kitty heaven. Oh I hope not! Becca was a purrty girl and she was one of those kitties who looked like she was wearing black eyeliner. She was a nice kitty. We miss you Becca!

Mama wasn't home today (she has to work today & Friday) but she's been spoiling me rotten tonight. When I told her I was DDP again she gave me LOTS of loving and kisses and treats!!
Mama got some sad news from Gamma....there's a chance that Gamma might be going to either an assisted living or nursing home starting November 1st. We know that Gamma can't take care of herself, and that she needs to do that. We knew this was coming, but we didn't know when. Gamma was hoping to wait until the spring of 2012, so she'd have time to take care of things and make decisions about her possesions & such. This is such a BIG BIG move...Gamma will lose her house, and more importantly she'll have to leave the land that she was born on (yes! Gamma was born on the land - it was her mama & daddy's farmland fur years...she was born in their home in 1930), and of course she will have to give up her kitties. Time is REALLY of the essence now to find homes fur the kittens, Susie and her ofur kitties...if they are adoptable. Gamma has a 12 y.o. shy but booful gray & white tabby named Jackie who we think is probably not adoptable because she hides and does not make up to anyone...then there is 9 year old Angel, she's a bit chubby but she's a pretty 15 lb (guestimate) brown & white tabby....she is a lovebug and loves people, loves attention and petting...she'd make a great companion fur someone....next is Trix...he's Angel's brofur and littermate...so he is also 9 and a brown & white tabby...Trix is also shy and hides....both of his ears were injured in fights so they have what mama calls a "crumpled" look to them...once he gets to know you he is a lover.
Now there is a 50/50 chance Gamma won't go to a NH or assisted living (AL) facility in November, due to a few things: 1) there's a waiting list for the AL places but we don't know how long; 2) Gamma was just in the NH in June fur 3 weeks and if she went in November, she'd have to pay out of pocket so she could not go until at least December. Gamma's choice is to go to the AL place, so she'd have SOME independence and be able to go places and see her boyfuriend. He's blind, so he can't come on his own and this way she could keep her truck & take him with her. So now Gamma and ALL her kitties are on our purr list.
Wowsers, the purr list is getting long!
