Xena's Mom here, she looks better this morning, but still isn't herself. She ate her breakfast, but hasn't left her heated bed. I asked her if she wanted to be brushed but she just looked at me. I started brushing her and she seemed to enjoy it again, she also was rubbing her chin on an old brush she loves to rub on while I brush her, that is better than yesterday.
I haven't seen her get up to use the potty box or drink water, not that she hasn't used it during the night or when I haven't been right there with her.
I checked on her all night long I was so worried about her, I know that the antibiotics need time to work so I will not panic yet. I just gave her a natural immuno liquid to help boost her immune system and gave her more water by syringe.
I will be leaving soon so she will sleep while I am gone; when I get home I will get her up and make sure she walks around a little & she isn't limping but walking normal.
We want to thank our friends for your well wishes for our Xena, we know she will be better soon, it is just hard as all of you know to see our fur babies not feeling well.

Well Mommy's year did not end well, she was walking a clients dog she was taking care of on the 30th and he walked right in front of her because he wanted to pee on a bush...well you will never guess what happened next!
MOMMY FELL, yeah that is right that stupid dog made Mommy fall, she landed on her knees and kept going she put her hand out to roll but she hurt her hand, she hit the side of her face on the sidewalk and her glasses fell off..all the while she is still holding on to the doggies leashes...
Mommy knew immediately that it was bad for her hand, it swelled up immediately, she picked herself up and went back to the doggies house, she immediately left to go home to see how bad she hurt herself...Dad said it looked like it is a sprained hand, the swelling has gone down but her hand still hurts, so Mom is thinking she needs to go to the doctor to make sure it is or isn't broken. Her knees are just scrapped, she is sore, but she will be OK...just not on the computer much because it hurts her hand to type, I would help her but my paws are not made for typing...
Mom also needed some down time after the holidays, she hasn't had any days off since before Thanksgiving,
Now for me..I will let Mom tell you!
Xena hasn't been feeling well since the weekend, she was hiding in my closet, she usually comes out when I tell her it is time to eat, she wasn't coming out. We thought maybe she got scared of Kandi because Kandi isn't always nice. Then yesterday I felt she was not herself there was something not right.
Well this morning she was worse, I had to work to get her to eat, she loves her can food so this was a sign, then she always waits for me on the couch to brush her, she loves her zoom groom. She was in her bed and didn't move I got her and put her down, she was walking with a little limp. Now I thought oh no she has hurt her leg from jumping.
So I called her Vet, they had no openings but I could take her in leave her and when her Vet had time she would check her. I was so concerned and upset that here we go again, I just can't deal with another kitty being sick so soon after Tallulah. I had to leave her and it broke my heart, I was so worried about her not knowing what is going on...I cried driving home and prayed a lot, asked my angel Tallulah to watch over her big sisfur....
Her Vet finally called, she told me it is good I brought Xena in she is running a fever of 105, but she checks out fine, no signs of anything that would cause her fever, so she said fevers indicate an infection, she is fighting the infection. She was given Sub Q fluids and injection of antibiotics.
She is home now finally, she isn't moving around too much, sleeping mostly, she did eat her can food tonight. I have to keep watch to make sure she doesn't get worse or doesn't improve I will have to take her back in...guess who isn't going to get much sleep tonight.
Her Vet said that if she isn't better in a couple days they will run test on her to make sure they are not missing anything. They will do blood work and take some urine and do x rays...I am praying so hard she will be better and not have to go back...I know my angel Tallulah is watching over her and taking care of her.
I will let you know how she is doing but please in the meantime please pray for my Xena, I won't be on as much until my hand isn't hurting like it is now...typing with one hand just doesn't work for me...until I have news, we wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
LOVE AND HUGS FROM ALL OF US
Xena, Mom Peggy and family

As I am the oldest kitty in our house Mom has asked me to write in my diary today to wish all of our friends here on Catster a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
It is the season of love and friendship, of giving! all of you this past year gave my family so much love and support while our Angel Tallulah was sick and when she went to the bridge.
Some of you are still giving by helping Mom spread the word about kitty breast cancer, we thank you so much for helping us and those that are helping Mom heal.
As we all celebrate this day think of those that are sick, those that are no longer with us and say a little prayer for our furry friends and their families...our wish is for our friends to be well again and for their families to heal and be OK to not be so sad, we wish for all to be healed and be happy again. Help us remember those that are no longer with us like our Tallulah...honor those that are gone in some way!
Remember tis the season to give!!!so give a little of yourself by helping others even if just stopping by and wishing them a Merry Christmas....God bless you all, stay safe as most of the US is having bad weather, stay warm....
WE LOVE YOU AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR FRIENDSHIP!!!!
Xena, Mom, Tu Two, Zeke, Angel Tallulah and Kandi

MOL Mom got my test results from my yearly exam...
Well most of it is good news for a cat that is getting older...the blood work shows that all is good all of my organs are working and no problems...
Now my urine test result is different....
My urine is a little diluted but not much so Dr. Kathy said that she wants me to come back in around 6 months from now to retest. She told Mom not to panic, panic i think I will panic I have to go back in so soon...after all what cat like to go to the Vet I don't know of any.
She told Mom too that it may not mean anything because my Kidney function is great, but with me being older she wants to make sure it isn't the start of kidney problems, she wants to be on top of this...
Overall I am healthy just need to be recheck to make sure nothing changes...
Mom is praying for good news she just isn't ready to have to deal with another illness...and I am too, I said a little prayer to my sisfur Tallulah to watch over me.

First I want to say this for all of our friends....we are here to stay, no matter what is going on here....this is a wonderful place for us kitties, we will continue our catster plus Mom loves putting wonderful things on our pages and decorating them, she is still trying to learn how to do things, she is a little slow about computer stuff, but I think she has don't great...we happy to say we are moving on to this new catster and hopefully it will be a happy wonderful place again.
We are here or should I say our Mom because it is a place for her to come to and forget what is going on outside, to not be stressed but to have fun...
This past year has been a difficult year for us especially Mom she found comfort, love and support, that is the bottom line and what catster is all about...not being upset with HQ
Yeah not all like the changes or the ads, but let's face it no one does, but eventually we get used to them and move on, there will be some that just can't and that is fine, we understand them being upset and moving on...we hope one day those that have left will return because we do miss them and love them...
Mom has realized that we need all of our catster friends you know why?
cause our friends understand how she is feeling, what she is going through and have been so supportive of us....others not on catster don't understand how Mom is feeling and with your love she feels a little better, she knows she can come here and she is not alone...
THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING SOME HAVE FORGOTTEN...LOVE AND SUPPORT......
MOM HEARD SOMETHING TODAY AND IT PUT A SMILE ON HER FACE AND SHE SAYS YOU KNOW XENA THAT IS SO TRUE
GRIEF IS THE PRICE OF LOVE AND IT IS SO WORTH IT....
Mom is still grieving for our Tallulah, but it is worth it because of the love she gave to all of us for 10 1/2 years and we her love always and she will be in our hearts forever.
Just as we love all of you, we have made wonderful friends and you all will be in our Moms heart...
Blessing to you all, lets remember those that have left, those that are sick and those that will not be with us much longer, they need us now, let' support them, be here for them and not worry about things we can not change....LIFE IS TOO SHORT....
hugs and love
Xena, Mom and family

MOL Friday I had to go with Mom just like Zeke on Monday to visit one of her clients Cats...I was very quite, didn't want her to know I was in her house...so I was hiding inside my soft carrier in the corner. She never knew I was there...lucky me.
I got to see Dr. Kathy like Zeke, she is so nice, but I was trying to hide my face in Mom's arms. I weigh 12lbs. 8 oz., the vampires took some of my blood and then they took some urine...now we have to wait for the results, Dr. Kathy will call Mom next week...she said I felt and looked healthy we just have to keep our fingers crossed that my blood and urine tests come back great...Zeke's came back & they are all great so he is healthy except for his respiratory infection and him having asthma
When Mom drove me home while in the car she opened my carrier a little so I could look out I was having fun watching everything go by and when Mom pulled into our garage I knew I was finally home.
Mom opened the carrier and the first thing I saw was Kandi, she was out and I ran into the family room to hide from her...I am not too sure about her, sometimes she charges at us and hisses...me and Zeke don't know what to think or do when Kandi acts that way we are not fighters...
Now I am OK hanging out in my bed with the heating pad and looking out the window, waiting for when Mom will come brush me and check me for any lumps, she worries now that me or Zeke will get sick...
Well I gotta go...it is time to take a nap so I can be up and have the run of the house once everyone goes to bed, Kandi is locked her the room and the doggies are locked in their crates..that is a fun time for me...nite my friends.

Mom wanted to let our friends know that the lady that made the casket for Tallulah does journaling everyday she told Mom to write about Tallulah and catster is a wonderful way to help her heal...so Mom is trying to be strong and write in our diaries hoping it will help...maybe just a little, but she still can't read the message and gifties yet, it is too soon, know that Mom is trying and one day she will be able to. Mom won't be on all the time she still needs time...she knows tomorrow will be another hard day she will be alone and will go to Tallulah grave and cry when she is alone...it is hard to watch Mom be so sad...I think I will go out there too and not let Mom be so sad, I will rub on her and meow asking her to pet me and scratch me...
I SEE TALLULAH BUT MOM CAN'T

1. Do you ever wake your parent up in the night? No, I am a night owl, I am out in the rest of the house being the watch cat. Besides I have the run of the house without the doggies trying to get me.
2. Do you ever tear up things? No, I never tear things up
3. What is your favorite treat? I don’t like treats
4. Can you fetch something when asked to do so? No
5. Have you ever lived any place other than where you live now? No until I finally was adopted by the best Mom ever and now I have my forever home.
Now as a family we are going to tag our friends Anna & Tabitha, since so many have been tagged already. No need to tag a friend that already has been tagged…Xena
