I can't believe I will be 10 tomorrow and Mom adopted me. it was my lucky day 10 years ago when Mom came to the cat show. She told me she really wasn't looking to adopt another kitty because at the time she already had 4 cats all girls...but she saw me and knew immediately it was love at first site and she was going to take me home.
So after calling Dad and telling him she was bringing another kitty home, a orange boy I was hers. I didn't like the ride home much I was in a card board carrier because Mom didn't have a carrier in her car.
By the time Mom got me home I was sneezing, she thought maybe I maybe I had allergies, little did she know that I was sick with URI....
The rescue group that had me when they got me I was stress little kitten with his siblings on the side of the road, they took me to the vet, they fixed me, gave me shots and de-wormed me....not a good idea because we were all stressed and sick...the shot for respiratory illnesses gave me the infection and because of that I am a carrier...
That first evening in my new home wasn't a good one because I was very sick, Mom called the rescue group to let them know, they wanted Mom to bring me back so they could take care of me, Mom said no way she was going to take care of me...she took me to our old Vet and that is when she found out I was sick with URI...medication after medication but I wasn't getting better. I had to stay in the bathroom for my first month in my new home.
Mom hand fed me, made me my food, gave me homeopathic remedies and soon I was on my way to getting better...
Finally I was able to get out of the bathroom and roam the house and to meet my 4 sisters..at first they didn't like me, but soon we all got along and I loved my family.
As the years have past 3 of my sisters are now angels, you know one our Tallulah who has helped so many and continues to help, she is famous you know she is all over the world and she is helping to fight breast cancer not only in humans but kitties as well, I loved my QT....Xena is my only sister that was here when I came to live all of those years ago and I love her I do...now we have Tu Two and we have so much fun playing with each other, I love her lots too.
I have had breathing issues over the years and finally Mom found our Vet we have now, she is the one that figured that some of my problems was from me having asthma, so now I have to breathe into my inhaler mask and I am doing so much better.
I love my forever home, love my Mom I am her lover boy, I sleep with her most nights or near her never far away. I have many places to sleep, lots of toys, I get to go outside on my leash sometimes, I get great food so what more could Moms lover boy want, not much because I think I have it all...
My only wish is for me to have lots more years with my family and to continue to be healthy of course except for my asthma that will always be there...and I don't want to have to go to the vet again but I know that wish will not happen.
I am so happy my Mom saw me at that cat show ten years ago tomorrow it was my lucky day, because she fell in love with me and gave me a chance to be her lover boy...

Mom is one sneaky lady she sure is....she pushed me into a small carrier because she had to take Xena to the Vet too for her Blood work...she managed to get us both in the front seat and buckled in our carriers. I meowed so loud because being in a carrier is too much for me, brings memories back of when I was a kitten, lonely and scared in a container with my siblings on the side of the road hearing all of those cars and big truck go by..and guess what Mom opened the garage door and you would not believe my luck a big trash truck pulled up in front of our house...I went crazy, Mom had to put the door back down and wait till the truck was down the street to open the door again....
I meowed and meowed all the way to the vet 10 miles...nothing helped calm me down, not Moms voice not soothing music.
I was a good boy at the vet because I really am a sweet mellow kitty, I let Dr. Kathy check my eyes, nose, mouth, she felt me and weighed me...12 lbs. 4 oz...I have gained a little weight...
I got taken away by the vampire lady, she took my blood and some urine too...I don't even want to talk about that humiliating event...what gives they could have just asked me and I would have done that for them, but no....
Dr. Kathy told Mom I need to have my teeth cleaned, but she can't afford it right now, she has to put dental gel on my gums with a swab everyday to help with my gums...Mom isn't sure when she will be able to do that...
My labs tests came back good, there is nothing to be concerned about, my asthma is good, just still have to have my inhaler as needed...she didn't even see anything from when I scared Mom a while back...so I am mostly healthy.
Well I need a nap so I think I will lay my head down on Moms lap...helping her type is getting me sleepy...nite my friends.
hugs and love

Hello my friends! we just wanted to let you know that I have been feeling better and no more scarring Mom...she has been giving me my asthma treatment every day, Immuno and I am doing so much better...my Vet said for Mom to keep watch over me to see if it happens again and since I am doing better I don't have to go to the vet. They could run test but it may show nothing...they are thinking I had an asthma attack and Mom just happened to get up at the right moment, but we are not sure what happen and may never know. But the good news is I am doing OK.
Mom has been resting now that her busy time of the year is over, she has to do lots of paperwork for the end of the year for her business, but that gives us more time to be with us...we are all so happy I love getting to sleep on her lap.
Since she is home more she has decided that she needed to find web sites that she can order medication cheaper for me and Xena...especially my inhaler for my asthma, guess what she found one, Mom was paying over $200 for human inhaler for me, now she will pay $82 plus shipping, she was dancing last night after she talked to the nice lady,now we just have to wait for my Vet to call them on Friday to give them my prescription and Moms saves money...my Vet gave Mom this web site gave you believe that!
For Xena she order lots of needles really cheap and she ordered her fluids and line from Dr. Foster & Smith...really good deal and no charge for shipping...
Guess it pays to shop around like humans say....now we have one happy Mom because I am feeling better, she is going to save money on our meds., what else could our Mom want right now.
Well my friends we just wanted to let you know I am feeling OK and hopefully I will continue to feel good and not scare Mom again.

Well here goes Mom got up a little before 4am and she almost fell over me, yes I was on the floor by her bed...usually I would get up and run off and meow, but that night I did not. Mom picked me up and then put me on the floor I went to a cube toy we have in her room the carpet was wet like some drops of wet from something dripped...Mom felt that something wasn't right with me. Mom picked me up again took me into the bathroom so she could turn the light on and so she could look at me and see what was going on...my breathing was raspy and I was wobbly on my feet. Mom told Dad but he stayed in bed...sometimes Mom doesn't understand how he could just stay in bed and not worry about us.
Mom decided to take me out into the family room and kitchen to stay with me and watch me for a little while and make a decision if I needed to go the Vet ER...Mom really didn't want to have to take me because she knows I really hate going into my carrier and I get so stressed out.
Mom gave me my asthma treatment thinking maybe I had an attack and she didn't hear me, and the gave me my medication for when I am sick, her Vet gives it to her just in case I get sick because I have URI...my pupils were dilated all the way no color in my eyes, I was limp and just wasn't Moms sweet boy.
Mom put me in one of the beds with our heating pads and laid by me watching me, talking to me and giving me love...she kept saying please Zeke be OK I can't have anything happen to you and then she pray and asked Tallulah to come watch over me and to not let anything happen to me...Mom was too afraid to cry, but the tears were there sometimes..
After several hours of Mom watching me I started to respond to her by purring and when she scritched me I meowed saying I am Ok Mom...
Mom feel asleep for a short time and when she realized she did she jumped up and checked on me....I meowed at her and I was OK, but Mom wasn't convinced. I just wasn't myself and she has no idea what happened and I don't know how to tell her either. Mom had to get up feed up and then go take care of cats, she didn't want to leave me for long so she hurried back to see how I was doing...
Now Mom knows I love to get brushed every morning and I saw her pick up our new brush we got for Christmas and you know what I got up and wanted to be brushed, I walked normal, I meowed and purred...Mom was so happy to see that I was OK..I didn't eat much.
All day Mom was checking on me and little over kill I say so myself, but I know she loves me and worries when one of us isn't feeling well.
She called the vet and they felt that since I was doing better that Mom should just keep an eye on me and keep giving me my asthma treatment to see how I do..if anything changes I have to go in for check up and maybe tests.
The last 2 nights I have been sleeping with Mom and she keeps checking on me and I know it is because she worries and she loves me...
Thanks Mom for finding me and staying with me when I wasn't doing well, and we know a special angel was with me and Mom we all know who it was...

Hello my friends it has been awhile since Mom has let me on the computer to write in my diary…
Well a lot is always going on here like so many other kitties families….this Month we have our pages decorated all the same because of honoring our Tallulah and her fight for KITTY BREAST CANCER AWARENESS!
We are not decorating our pages this year for HALLOWEEN, Mom wasn’t going to even do our pictures for HALLOWEEN, but yesterday she has a little time to look at the frames for HALLOWEEN…
and guess what she found a frame in pink…yes that is right pink because for us this month it is all about pink for our TALLULAH and us HONORING HER. YES IT IS OK FOR MANCATS TO WEAR PINK AND HAVE THEIR PAGES DECORATED IN PINK....ANYWAY WHO SAID PINK IS ONLY FOR GIRLS.
Yeah we know HALLOWEEN is all about orange & black…but we like the pink! We think it is special because our sisfur Tallulah was special and we continue to honor her even on HALLOWEEN
If you are wondering way we have pink HALLOWEEN picture frames now you know why…besides we want to be different…
HAPPY HALLOWEEN FRIENDS! STAY SAFE AND INSIDE

Tomorrow 9/11 is PET MEMORIAL DAY! we have poems to help remember our beloved pets that have made their journey to the Rainbow Bridge!
"It came to me that every time I lose a cat/dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new cat/dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be cat/dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are."
A Bridge Called Love
It takes us back to brighter years,
to happier sunlit days
and to precious moments
that will be with us always.
And these fond recollections
are treasured in the heart
to bring us always close to those
from whom we had to part.
There is a bridge of memories
from earth to Heaven above...
It keeps our dear ones near us
It's the bridge that we call love
Warm light coming from far below,
Twinkling, sparkling is the candle's glow.
All is well up on the ridge,
The place we know as Rainbow Bridge.
Furbabies sleeping in heaven's light,
Tended by candles in the night.
Peaceful dreams be theirs to keep,
As they slumber in this night so deep.
Hearts on earth that miss them so,
Take comfort in the candle's glow.
Watching for them in skies above,
Bound eternally by a cord of love.

A comfortable lap,
a gentle stroke, a hand to rub
your outstretched chin...
is this kitty paradise?
Your purr-motor's running
passionately, and your paws
are kneading with kittenish zeal
as you close your eyes to all else,
savoring this moment of absolute joy.
This is paradise to me especially when I am on Mom's lap..pure joy for me...as I fall asleep in wonder bliss!

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.
