Hello my friends I have finally got Mom to give you an update on my Vet visit last Friday and what is going on with me...
Well ever since I had my surgery I get so stressed going to the vet I think Mom is going to leave me, I don't want to be there at all I try to get back in to my carrier....
Friday they had to check me to make sure there is no lump and guess what there isn't any Hooray! they took blood and urine for retesting....they want to make sure there are no signs of the nasty C...hooray there isn't any....Dr. Kathy told Mom I look really good and while she was feeling me she said all was good...
Once I was able to get out of there and we got home I went to hiding while Mom was gone for a little while....Saturday was another stressful day Mom and Dad had their carpets cleaned so I went into the closet which I love....
Sunday when Mom got up she was talking to me and I stopped by a hall door and was quivering my tail like I was spraying, Mom says Xena what are you doing, you better not be spraying....I wasn't, Mom realized I was straining, she looked on the floor and there are a few spots of urine...no no Xena you are not getting an infection....too late Mom I already have it....
Mom started me on a homeopathic remedy that does work if she catches it in time, all day I laid around and spent time in the litter box trying to go...
Today Dr. Kathy called around 2:30, she told Mom that there was some signs of infection so she has to go get me antibiotics and will have to take for 2 weeks...
Now on to my kidney issues...my BUN number went from 33 in June to 38 and my Creatinine number went from 2.7 to 2.8...
Dr. Kathy said it isn't bad but she would like for me to start getting fluids under the skin. Mom said that she would like for be to settle down first, take my antibiotics first and she agreed...so when Mom goes in tomorrow to get my medication she will make my appointment to get rechecked and for Mom to learn how to give me fluids....
Mom really doesn't want to do this yet, but looks like she doesn't have a choice so we can keep me from getting worse and hopefully keep my numbers from going up too high....now Mom isn't afraid to do the needle into my skin, she has 2 clients cats that she has to give them their insulin....
Well friends that is all from here with me...I am doing OK, I am eating, just not feeling too good right now but wait by the end of the week I will be OK...
We are praying for all the need our prayers...
hugs and love

Okay everyone, here's the deal. Bella's mom Cathy just spoke with Jen on the phone and she is going to pick up Ingen tomorrow at the shelter and bring her to her home until we can get her back to Jen. The cost for this is $105 just to get her out of the shelter. I've put up a chipin widget on the homepage of my website to donate to help reimburse Cathy for this cost, cost of any food, and also in helping get Ingen home (we're still figuring out the details on that one). Please go to www.ibdkitties.net and click on the widget to donate anything you want for this. PLEASE SPECIFY that it's for Ingen when you donate so I know that's what it's for as I also have a donations button on my site for IBD Kitties that goes to my paypal account, the same account. Let me know if you have any problems.
Luv Alex and mom Lisa
And special thanks again to Cathy

We have noticed that many are leaving catster, it saddens us because this is the place we can come to get love and support, yes you all know we have had a lot of support because of our Tallulah, but it is more...
Some are saying they are leaving because catster has changed, yes it has but we can make it through the changes and be here for our friends...if we all leave because of some changes that we feel are not the best then catster will be no more...
It saddens us to see this, we know times are tuff it is for most of us, Mom feels this is one place she can come and forget her troubles, her sorrows and find friends, friends who feel the same way and know how she is feeling...sometimes we can't always be here to have fun and be here for our friends, but we do come often to check on our friends...
We have some very special friends and we cherish them! So those of you that are thinking of leaving cause of the changes or there isn't much activity on here, think hard before you leave because for everyone that leaves there is one less here to make it better and soon there will be none...
We hope you all will stay, change your mind or just maybe take a little break if you need and come back...
Our family is so grateful for having found catster, for all of our special and wonderful friends we have made here...we pray for you all!
So here is a poem we found for all of you!
Special Friend Poems
"Portrait of a Friend"
I can't give solutions to all of life's problems, doubts,
or fears. But I can listen to you, and together we will
search for answers.
I can't change your past with all it's heartache and pain,
nor the future with its untold stories.
But I can be there now when you need me to care.
I can't keep your feet from stumbling.
I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.
Your joys, triumphs, successes, and happiness are not mine;
Yet I can share in your laughter.
Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge;
I can only support you, encourage you,
and help you when you ask.
I can't prevent you from falling away from friendship,
from your values, from me.
I can only pray for you, talk to you and wait for you.
I can't give you boundaries which I have determined for you,
But I can give you the room to change, room to grow,
room to be yourself.
I can't keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces
and put them back in place.
I can't tell you who you are.
I can only love you and be your friend.
Purrs, Love, Hugs and Agel kisses from all of us to all of you!

OK California & Arizona friends where were you yesterday 9/8/2011 when the lights went out! That's right at 3:30pm yesterday Mom & all of us were resting and all of a sudden power went out...oh no, now what! we waited and waited for the power to come back on, but it didn't..it was so hot and humid in our house, no air, no fans, no lights...but of course us cats have no problems with that we see everything....
Mom and Dad were listening to the battery operated radio to see what was going on and low & behold all of Southern California from Orange county to Baja, some of Mexico and even Yuma Arizona went dark...MOL
What a mess with everyone trying to get home, luckily Mom and Dad both were home so they didn't have to be out in the major traffic jam and traffic jam it was....people were trying to get home for hours, some ran out of gas and were stuck on the roads...it was a mess....this morning gas stations cars were lined up to get gas, something Mom hasn't seen since the 70's
Now this all happened because one person did something wrong in Arizona and it caused a ripple affect...we know this isn't as bad as hurricanes, floods and fires, but it sure was bad enough and my pawrents were saying how easy it would be for a terrorist to do this to the hole country and how powerless we all would be...not a good feeling....
It was so hard for Mom and Dad to sleep...back windows were open but no relief at all till finally after 10 hours the electricity came back on...
About 1.4 million were affected by this, thousands of $$$ lost because all businesses were closed and loss of food having to be thrown out...no flights leaving cause they couldn't check people...most businesses are open, schools & collages are not open, some traffic lights work and others don't so Mom had to be careful when she was out today....but most is back to normal!
It was a weird feeling, some people were partying out in the streets, dogs barking and total darkness...but none of us cats were affected by it, except we wanted our food....
So now we wonder do you think their will be a big baby & kitty boom cause the lights went out in Southern California...we hope not!
We were home when the lights went out...thank goodness!

When you have something particularly challenging to deal with, try to remind yourself...
You've got this moment...
You can choose to be happy or unhappy. You can choose what you think, what you say, and how you feel. You can choose to be hopeful.
You've got this day...
No matter what the weather is like, you can choose what kind of day it will be. You can choose your attitude about what you're facing...
You've got your life...
You can talk to yourself about what you need to do to honor your life, but if you don't turn those thoughts into actions,you're just playing games and giving in to whatever comes to mind.
You've got the power to make choices...
when you use this awesome gift in your best advantage, there is nothing you can't do.
This is my inspiration for the today....let's spread good around!

HONORING OUR ANGEL TALLULAH
One way for Mom to honor and remember our TALLULAH this month she asked a special sweet friends Mom to make a background for all of us to honor TALLULAH FOR HER FIRST ANNIVERSARY BEING AT THE RAINBOW BRIDGE! No matter had hard it is Mom wants to honor Tallulah.
Yes even Zeke and our doggie Milo has the same background and of course it is pink! And they say so what boys look good in pink too…
This whole month we honoring you Tallulah for your fight and bravery, you fought so hard for 13 months and you never once gave up not even in the end….
We honor you for being the best mascot for the breast cancer three day walk last year in San Francisco, you guided and helped Chai Latte’s Mom …what a good girl for showing her the beautiful butterfly while she was walking on her 3rd day….you will be their mascot again this year, we are so proud of you and the kitty Moms for walking and spreading the word about kitty breast cancer
We honor you for just being you, the sweet cute beautiful kitty our precious gift from God.
We honor you for watching over Xena when she had her surgery and made sure the lump was benign, if it weren’t for you teaching Mom that she needs to check us all the time for lumps she may have not found the lump when she did….you saved Xena and for that we honor you always…..
We honor you for helping others and we hope that one day there will be no girl kitties getting breast cancer.
We honor you for helping Mom spread the word about cancer, yes we want others to know that kitties get cancer not just breast cancer and we have made sure Moms know how important it is to check us kitties for lumps and get us to the vet ASAP it could save their lives.
We hope all of our friends will take a moment and remember our Tallulah how hard she fought and wanted to live, but God had other plans for her to help others in the fight to spread the word about breast cancer…she did not die in vain….she has saved lives!
TALLULAH OUR BEAUTIFUL GUARDIAN ANGEL WE HONOR YOU AND REMEMBER YOU EACH AND EVERY DAY! YOUR LOVE IS ALWAYS WITH US AND WE WILL ALWAYS LOVE AND MISS YOU….WE SEE THE BUTTERFLIES YOU SEND TO US.
LOVE TO YOU TALLULAH

Look we all have our pages decorated with butterflies and we are all honoring our ANGEL SISFUR TALLULAH! This month on the 22nd it would have been her 12th birthday Mom decided that we will all have different butterflies on our pages…
Next month will be a hard and sad month for us, it will be Tallulah’s first anniversary going to the rainbow bridge and we will continue to honor her with more butterflies…Tallulah is all about her butterfly garden in heaven and she let Mom know she was Ok with a beautiful white butterfly…how else can we honor her but with butterflies…
Reminding all of our friends that you still need to have your Mom check you for any lumps, you just never know, we found that out! Never assume it is nothing, we didn’t and it saved Xena….
Remember Tallulah’s kitty breast cancer awareness is all year around every year…to many kitties are getting breast cancer and other cancers and we need to make sure our pawrents check us….
So help us honor our Tallulah on the 22nd of this month by decorating your page with butterflies or having a graphic of a butterfly on your page….we hope you will do this!
Tallulah is sending all butterflies from heaven!
Love, hugs and angel kitty kisses
Xena, Zeke, Tu Two and Kandi
