MOL 1 year ago today we left San Diego for our new home in Arizona. We say were did the time go. Mom says it has certainly been an eventful year for us all. The saddest part is Kandi going to the rainbow bridge suddenly. When we drove over there were 5 kitties and now we are 4....but Kandi is with us always even if we didn't get to know her, well us kitties anyway.
We all love our house, Tu and Kody love running through the house chasing each other, of course I love my area, I have so much room, I come out more and just love sitting on the bench waiting for Mom or Dad to come in to give me love, mom brushes me and of course feeds me whenever I want my food. Zeke and I hang out together allot in the closet it is our safe place. He likes hanging out with Mom too and looking out the window. I come out at night to visit Mom on the bed, especially when I want some food and to get scritched.
Oh how the young ones love sitting at the windows watching all the nature outside, the butterflies are everywhere, especially white ones now, it reminds Mom of our Tallulah, we know she is sending them to Mom.
Mom has finally put out all of the angel kitties and doggies little stepping stones in the backyard & her statues of St. Francis, she is repainting everything and spraying them with sealer to protect them from the sun.
Well we just wanted to let you all know it has been a year and we are all adjusted, oh and for now we are all doing good...Mom cherishes every day she has us because she knows no one knows what tomorrow will bring....she prays that we will continue to be OK and no more health issues...especially for Mia our doggy, she had a echo cardiogram yesterday, we know she has heart issue we are just waiting to see what exactly, next she has to have another test done to see why she is having troubles with her peeing everywhere and not knowing when she has to go....we have to wait to see if she can go under for this test....
Hugs to you all and we loves you too.

Hello friends, we sure miss you all!
We have to say we are sorry we haven't been around but as some of you know we lost our Kandi on the 12th of April suddenly, we found out her kidneys were failing and less than a week later she made her journey to the bridge. Mom is still trying to get over the shock of it all and is grieving her loss...
We have missed so much by not being here we want to send our belated birthday/gotcha day wishes...and our sympathies to our friends that made their journeys to the bridge. Know we think of you all and we hope Mom will feel like being here again real soon....
Before I take my leave and go take my nap I have to let you know I am doing OK, I have lost a little weight which of course concerns Mom. I have been checked by my Vet she put me on food stimulant, I was taking one that made me crazy, Mom didn't leave me, I was all over the place couldn't be still for long, my meow changed, so when Mom picked up Kandi's ashes last week she asked about giving me the pills Kandi was getting to help her eat, the vet said it was OK and to give me the same amount. It is better, I am not as crazy but I do want to eat and eat...but still not gaining weight...Mom is hopeful. Everyone else is doing good, enjoying our beautiful spring weather we are having, but not the winds, so windy every afternoon....and oh yeah the beautiful desert in bloom, it is a sea of yellow where we live and the cactus are blooming too...
Hope you are all doing well and enjoying the spring weather like we are, be well and bless you all

Again we are sorry we are not around as so many others, but we are sitting here waiting for the day we get our catster back and we can all have fun. Right now Mom says she finds it boring and sad that no one is around. We loved reading our friends diaries so we knew what is happening, hoping we will have our diaries like now but we can make comments again.
Ok now for me, I went to the vet yesterday my 6 month check up for my kidneys.
Mom bought a baby scale to weight all of us especially me and Tu. Anyway I have lost about a pound since my vet visit in September. Trying to figure out why!
My heart was racing so they decided to take my blood pressure, this was a first, Mom let me go back into my carrier where I felt safe, she was petting and scritching me to help me relax and it worked. My blood pressure was OK.
My blood work for my kidneys about the same, they are a little high but no change for the most part, my white blood cell count is a little high.
Mom talked to the vet about my weight lose which is a concern for all, they figured out that even though I am eating I am not eating enough. So I now get a pill every 3 days to help my appetite and Forti flora to help my tummy and to help me not have the poops that I do have sometimes.
It is tuff being old, Mom agrees....I really am doing good besides loosing weight, I am out more, spend more time with Mom I even get on the bed to lay on Mom.
This kitty is still hanging in there and everyday it amazes Mom how well I am doing. She still worries about me and sometimes she cries because she knows that I will not get better and one day it will be time to let me go, but until then we are enjoying each and everyday, getting lots of love...
