Hello my fellow kitties this month once again we are celebrating TALLULAH'S KITTY BREAST CANCER AWARENESS and as well as human breast cancer awareness.
As you all know our sisfur Tallulah had this horrible cancer and we made others aware, even though she did survive and beat this cancer unfortunately the tumors went into her lungs and that is what made her lose her battle. But she never has stopped the battle no she hasn't, she is still making sure other pet owners know that cats and dogs get breast cancer and most kitties even if they fight lose the battle, we still don't know why this happens but it does, we have found out that even other cancers are attacking kitties and doggies (why too many)
So many of our girl kitty friends have gotten breast cancer and they too are in kitty heaven and from there they continue the fight they are PINK WARRIORS...one of our special friends Sugar also got this horrible cancer and her Mom continues to make others are aware as well as our Mom.
So this month we are honoring all of our friends that got breast cancer that may still be fighting and those like Tallulah are now ANGEL WARRIORS IN PINK....
Mom has decided to decorate all of our pages with breast cancer pink and ribbons another way to help spread the word.
As a reminder we ask that you take a minute and check your kitties for any lumps or bumps, hopefully no one will find any but if you don't, please take your precious fur baby to the vet and have it checked...this is serious and something we should be doing, Mom still checks all of us and she even checks herself...speaking of that Mom has to make an appointment for her yearly mammogram she does it every year in October...
So we will close this now, we pray that no one else gets breast cancer.
TALLULAH'S KITTY BREAST CANCER AWARENESS, SHE IS AN ANGEL WARRIOR IN PINK

I went to my new vet yesterday for the second time, this time to have blood work for my kidneys to see how I am doing.
I have to tell you Mom, Dad and me like the one we saw yesterday her name is Engie. She said if she didn't know I am 16 she would not believe it, she told Mom & Dad I look really good for my age.
I still have my heart murmur so she will keep checking my heart. They took my blood those vampires....
Well the numbers have changed because of my thyroid and the medication for it.
The Bun number went from 36 to 39
My creatinine went from 2.6 to 3.3
My vet is worried that the creatinine went up a lot so she consulted with a specialist to see what needs to be changed because my thyroid medication and thyroid has affected this.
My vet called Mom this morning I now have to get my 1/4 of my thyroid pills once a day instead of 2 times a day. Then in 3 to 4 weeks I go back in they will check my numbers again to see if that helped any. If not they may try a compound medication and/or have me get fluids more often for now I get the fluids 3 times a week.
They also gave Mom some new Kidney prescription food for me to try not the Hills Prescription I hate that and guess what? I like it, I actually an eating it...and the best part is Mom got a whole case for free because it is new and the company selling it gave it to the vet & me to see if I like it. Next time Mom will have to pay for it...
Now we have discovered that the lactated Ringers (my fluids) are in very short supply, they limit what you can order and some on line sites our completely out and it looks like this will be going on until 2015 sometime. Mom asked the vet about the shortage and she said yes they are having trouble getting the bags of fluids but they get them, if Mom needs any she can get them from the vet for $30 a bag...WHAT!!!!!
Mom just ordered 4 bags with no problem a week ago, but because of the shortage Mom just ordered 10 more for $7.24 a bag.....not that Mom wanted to order more but she can't take a chance that we will run out or have to pay $30 for a bag...what a rip off Mom says, she didn't say that to the vet...just hope we don't run out and when we need to order more we will be able to.
So I am doing pretty good, love my special area, enjoying my morning brushing, loves and not being in small places. Mom takes for out in back in her arms to let me see where we live, I haven't been in the enclosure, Mom feels it is too hot out for me and she doesn't want me to stress out.
Best part of going to the Vet I rode in style in our nice new car, I didn't like that I was next to Mom because dad drives the car for now, but Mom could reach me and talk to me, loved the ride home because I knew my venture to the vet was over.

So me and my family THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OUR ALL OF OUR HEARTS for bringing Catster back to all of us and our friends.
OH and being able to comment on our friends dairies we are so very happy now they won't think no one is around and having to find other ways to let them know we read their diaries...we think diaries are so important because that is how we find out how we are all doing and we help support each other.
