My vet called and the results are in, I have Chronic Renal Failure just like Xena. Mom thought is might be either kidney or thyroid, she is so glad it isn't the nasty horrible "C". She knows I can live for a long time with kidney issues..so now Mom has 2 of us to do fluids.
I got my first fluids this afternoon, after Xena got hers. Mom says I am really a good boy because I did great, I didn't relax completely like Xena is, but I just laid there and then it was over. I get my fluids once a week now, have to be rechecked in 2 weeks to see how I am doing. If I am doing good, no changes and then I will get my appointment to have my toofies cleaned.
I go in on Friday to get my blood pressure taken it will be a quick visit, I don't even have to see the vet.
Mom says it sucks having 3 older pets and all have illnesses, she feels sad, it certainly takes Mom a long time to get medication in us, fix special food and having to hold Mia after she eats to help her with keeping her food down. Oh yeah Mia is doing better, finally ate on her own last night and she is starting to eat her special food Mom makes for her along with FreshPet chicken. Mom also says she is suppose to be retired, but taking care of us is work, too bad she doesn't get paid for all the work she has to do.
I am feeling better, I even pooped this morning, I am eating and eating, now I am sleeping near Mom by our window. I even slept on Moms bed last night, then her recliner, was waiting for her to wake up and give me food.
Thank you for all the POTP'S they worked, and all your messages. You are all the best when it comes to being her for us. We certainly have had a lot going on lately, Mom says she needs a vacation....oh she can't, she can't leave us...

Ok I don't like going to the vet, I try to make myself small & disappear. I haven't lost anymore weight, they invaded me,like take my temp. and felt me up, asked lots of questions. Then they whisked me off to take X rays they wanted to see how my lungs look since I have asthma & respiratory issues. They don't look too bad but signs of bronchial damage nothing to worry about, but that is to be expected. My tummy & intestines look good to, nothing showed up. Blood taken they are sending it out to get better thorough results. Oh yeah they took urine too, so humiliated! So now we wait for the results to come back.
Guess what I came home and I am acting like myself again, ate been out with mom, walking around. Mom thinks me pooping this morning finally helped me feel better again.
If everything checks out mom will make appt. for me to get my toofies cleaned. She worries but knows getting my teeth cleaned will help me.
Well that is it for today once we hear from vet we will let you all know.
Thank you friends for my gifts and your support. Catster is the best!

I haven't been myself lately, with all that has been going on with Mia mom didn't realize I have been mopey and not out and about. I am eating, but I have lost a little more weight, can you believe Xena weighs more than me. Mom gave me cat lax because she has noticed I haven't pooped like I do every morning. She saw me straining last night to go a little. This morning I was up looked like I might feel, but I am back under the bench, mom gave me slippery elm to help coat my intestines & Animals Apawthecaey Phytomucil powder, she is hoping it will help me go more than just a little.
Mom made me an appt. to see our vet tomorrow morning. They also want to talk to the vet about what happened with Mia. Let's keep our paws crossed I am ok and it isn't anything serious.

Today my friends, my sweet and special friends you have made my day wonderpurr, yes you have. It is nice to know some of our friends are still around so many are not.
Today has been a quite day around here, it has been just Mom and us furries, Dad was visiting some of his guy friends. Mom stayed home with all of us. So of course I got to spend time on Moms lap getting love, scritches and hugs. I got a good breakfast Sardines, of course Mom has to put it in the food processor to make it smooth. Yam is all I can say!!!!today who knows what I will get, but I can't wait.
Most important is you all, thanks for making my day special and wonderpurr.

MOL! tomorrow I will be 14, we sure can't believe it, it seems like yesterday Mom saw me at the cat show in San Diego and fell in love with me and my cuteness, even though she didn't know I was sick.
With lots of love and care I finally got well enough to be out of the bathroom and meet my fur family. I am a Mommies boy, I love my Mom, I am with her a lot, love sleeping on her in her chair and on the bed by her feet.
Mom says she has noticed I am aging, but I am doing good. Since we have moved here to Arizona I don't have many asthma attacks, I only sneeze now. Mom is happy for that. I am taking Cosequin even though I am not having problems, Mom says it is to help me so I don't have issues.
I still love to play, get brushed and brushed, get catnip. I spend a lot of time with Xena too, her and I have Moms walk in closet for our room and we love it, Mom has it all fixed with beds, food, water and of course the unmentionable box. I am doing well, I have to go in soon for my check up, Mom says she will make arrangements for me to have my toofies cleaned in September.
Now for my birthday, Mom says it will be a good day, she already told me I will get tuna, can't wait!!!! as for special presents no presents we have plenty of toys, catnip, I don't like treats so none of that. Just lots of love and hugs for me...and that is all I ever want anyway, get love from my Mom is the best present any Mama's boy could want.
We hope you are all enjoying your summer, staying cool, we sure are, we pray for all that are sick and not doing well, for those who have had to cross over we pray for them and their families.
Sending our love, hugs and of course butterfly kisses from heaven

WOW it has been a long time since we all have been here, well that isn't true Mom checks Catster from her phone, but not on her laptop. I want to thank all my friends for remembering me and sending me gifts for my gotcha day. Mom forgot it was my gotcha day can you believe it her Mama's boy she forgot. She was busy rearranging things in our closet and room.
Now for updates, we started the New Year with snow, that's right snow here in the desert. Mom got up to see snow covering our backyard, what a sight it was to see our yard all white and she has the nerve to put me out in it, she wanted to see what I would do, I hated it wanted nothing to do with this weird very cold stuff on the ground, Kody was another story. It was beautiful to see the cactus with snow, Mom knew we would get snow, once they decided to move she told Dad, it will be hotter than normal, check, the monsoons would be worse, check, and we would get snow, check....she said it was because we were from sunny San Diego...and she was right.
So far our new year has been uneventful until she decided it was time for me to have my yearly check up and see my new vet. Because I am considered a senior kitty I got the Sr. check up with all the blood work. I am doing really good, eventually I will need my teeth cleaned but not now, nothing is showing up to be concerned about. Mom is so happy because she was worried about me. Hooray great news for me and Moms pocket!!!!
We haven't been around because there isn't much we can do, we love doing our diaries and reading our friends, commenting and we can't even do the comments. It makes Mom so sad that this place the place we love is so dead now, we are still here not going anywhere like so many others we wait and wait for nothing to happen, we sure hope one day very very soon we will have our catster back, but until then just know we are here waiting in the background.
Now for the reason we are not on the lap top, for some reason our wireless gets very slow most of the time, mom can't do much, Dad has talked to Cox and they keep telling Dad that this is the way it is here, but Dad said no it isn't, they need to fix it, so Dad is calling them again to have someone come out to make sure everything is OK at our house...sorry Mom doesn't understand all of this stuff....she just wants her lap top to work faster like it used to, so she doesn't even get on it, she uses her phone but doesn't like to.
I am just hanging out with Mom, she has our heating pads out all over so we can sleep in warmth, she even rearranged things so me, Tu Two and Kody have warm places so we can look out her bay window. She got us a new cat tree it is smaller it has a hammock between our scratching posts to sleep in, we loves it of course it has a heating pad in it. So we all spend our days sleeping in the sun and warmth, not much going on, we are retired!
Well it is time for me to take my afternoon nap now the sun is shining in on our beds talk soon....hugs to all!!!

Hi my friends this month I wear pink to honor my sisfur Tallulah and of course my background is all pink...we are also honoring all the kitties and humans that have breast cancer, those that have made their journey to the bridge...they are all warriors in pink because the are fighters. We continue to honor those and we remember our Tallulah who fought so bravely, who with Moms help made others aware of Kitty Breast Cancer, who was a mascot and those who walked made others aware that kitties and doggies do indeed get breast cancer, she is all over the world and because of her others are now aware.
Mom still continues to let pet owners know about this cancer and how it affects animals, especially girl kitties that haven't been spayed when they were kittens, the older they are the changes of them getting breast cancer goes way up. Mom never knew this, she adopted Tallulah she was between 6 months to a year, she had kittens because of this her changes went sky high....
So please remember to check your kitties and doggies for lumps and bumps, one never knows what it may be, take them to the vet don't think it is nothing.
I am proud to wear pink and have my page all pink because we honor our sisfur and others for KITTY BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH...
Hugs to all

Hello my friends, well now my life in the desert is so different than in San Diego. First we have Mom and Dad home all day, well most days. We all get to sleep in now, not just the weekends. We get lots more love and attention because hooray Mom and Dad are home all day with us....
We don't have our backyard in San Diego anymore where we could be out on our leashes, enjoy grass and finding places to bask in the sun or hide amongst the bushes and plants...no not anymore.
Now we can't be out without Mom right there and it is way too hot for us. We no longer have real grass or big bushes or plants, we have artificial grass, can't eat it, only potted plants, mostly pavers and gravel...now you may ask why? well with living in the desert and it being hot most of the time it is easier not to have grass and Mom didn't want lots of gardening to do because of the heat...so she just has potted plants in the yard and on the patio...succulents!
We miss our wonderpurr yard in San Diego, but we are here living in the desert...we get to see so many different animals here, hawks in the sky, even a coyote from a far...so scary for all of us & many strange looking bugs too.
I don't spend a lot of time at the window like I used to in San Diego either, our new bay window doesn't have the shelf for us, Mom is sad cause she knows how much we all loved hanging out at the window. We do look out our patio window, Mom has one of our trees there so we can see out in the yard and above our brick wall. I do spend a little time on Moms table at the bay window and sometimes I go on the cat tree at the bay window as well, but mostly I hang out in Moms chair with her or in the large walk in closet with Xena.
I have also learned that Dad is a softy I go to him and he will get me my bowl of dry food Mom keeps on a shelf in the pantry, Tu Two gets Dad to give her food too, but after Mom talked to the vet yesterday when they took Xena in for Blood work, Mom said see I told you Tu Two can't be eating all the time...so now we don't get food every time we ask or when ever Dad is in the kitchen.
So life is good here now that we have all relaxed and found our special places to sleep & of course hide when we need to. Life is good because we are all together and Mom & Dad are home with us even though everything is different now.
