Huggy Bear Zeke here the day after my birthday! I have to tell you all thank you for your loving concern for me, my birthday gifts and wishes...it was a wonderpurr day even if I had a bad start!
I slept most of the day, I even was hiding cause the doorbell ran and some stranger came into the house, Mom told us the man was here to check our water softner and change the filters so we all can have good water. We always run when we here the doorbell ring. After the man left Mom came looking for me, but she didn't see me hiding under the printer table, she keeps walking past me, calling me, I kept saying I am right here. Finally she remembers that I used to hide there sometimes so she looked and there I was...she laughed and said oh look you have been there all the time you silly boy...guess I am a good hider!
I finally came out, Mom got on the computer I sat on the chair arm while she was working, but Mom got too sleepy and decided to stop and I immediately climbed into her lap and we both took a nap...oh the wonders of sleeping on Mom the best I must say!
I got my tuna dinner, so good I licked it all...none for that little brother of mine...
I went to bed with Mom and we both had a better night sleeping, but around 6:45 Mom heard me again having my asthma attack so you all know what happened next, that's right on with the mask and so went the puff! I am feeling better now. Mom isn't sure why I am having these attacks all of a sudden, I have been doing really good, so keeps track of my attacks, puffs and times, so if this continues she will be in touch with my vet. I think it is because I turned 12 letting me & Mom know I am getting older...
Thanks again, love you all and send you all bear hugs

Being 12 today doesn't feel any different, but Mom says I have slowed down some, what does she expect! she is slowing down too....
Ok well my day started out not so well, I was sleeping with Mom above her pillow all of a sudden she hears me having my coughing asthma attack, then I stop and start up again, so she gets up and rudely puts my mask on my face and gives me a puff of my inhaler. Now I am doing better, but now Mom is worried, so she keeps waking me up and then she can't go back to sleep. Just a we both go back to sleep, Dad comes into bed, soon I am coughing again and again, so Mom gets up again, get my inhaler and mask...she has a small flashlight above her bed, somehow it feel behind the headboard and she couldn't find it, so out to the family room to get Dads light...again I get the mask on my face and a puff of my inhaler.
Now Mom is really worried she had never known me to have 2 attaches within 2 hours of each attach, she keeps petting me & loving me, now I don't mind that at all, but I know she is very tired and needs sleep...I keep moving telling Mom I am OK just go to sleep...but Mom can't!
So finally after some time Mom goes to sleep only to have Dads radio come on and now she knows she won't get back to sleep...time to get up to take care of us.
Once up and I got my breakfast, Mom told me HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY SWEET ZEKE, MY HUGGY BEAR, listen my sweet boy after the night you had we are going to keep a low key today and not have a big celebration for your birthday. I have to leave for a while so please be OK and I will return home. Tallulah is here watching over you for me while I am gone.
I have been sleeping and just hanging out with Mom. I will be getting my favorite fishy dinner tonight, I can't wait!
What a bummer my birthday started out so bad, but I am happy I have my wonderpurr family and especially my Mom to make sure I am OK I know she loves me and will always be there for me..
One last thing Thank you my friends for sending me gifts and messages, love you all!

OH what fun we have had with our new toy the Cat's Meow...now here Mom wasn't sure I would come and watch it, but boy did I surprise her, I love trying to get the tail...not sure what is at the other end, but it sure is fun trying to figure it out...it goes round n round...now I have figured out that I can put my paw under the yellow mat and stop the tail, bite bit and pull, but nothing comes out, I lay on my side and look under but I don't see anything but a tail...
what fun we have watching it go round n round trying to catch the tail.
Do you know what is under the mat, besides the tail?....we wonder, but then again just watching the tail go around is fun...
We have the Cat's Meow!!!!thank you Mom for a fun toy

Now that I am out of the groggy, wobbly stage of me getting my toofies cleaned yesterday I am feeling so much better...but now I won't leave Mom's side, I want to be all over her and getting my very fine soft fur all over her....as she cough from it getting into her mouth and throat....she says Zeke really I am not going anywhere and neither are you...as I am getting in her lap and telling her she must pay attention to me. I think she owes me this time after all I went through yesterday.
I have to tell you I have never been so hungry as I was last night. Mom forgot to pick up one of the bowls with a little dry food in it, so I wobbly went over to it and tried to eat, but it hurt so I just spit it out all over...Mom saw me and told me oh Zeke you are so hungry let me get you some can food. So she picked me up and she got me some yummy food. I must say I have never eaten like that in my whole life, Mom was amazed to see me eating like I had never eaten before...well yeah it was hours and hours and hours since I had anything in my tummy....what does she expect, gosh Mom I was starved, had my front paw shaved, needles stuck in me and who knows what they did in my mouth...and to make it worse I slept all day and missed everything.
So after getting a little food, Mom kept checking on me to make sure I wasn't going to throw up my food, glad to report I didn't, I was too hungry to do that.
So with a full tummy I went to sleep and didn't move most of the night. Mom got up to check on me, she had the flask light looking for me, she couldn't find me, then she walked back into her room and there I was on top of the doggie cage where we have one of our special places to sleep a kitty cube...sound asleep minding my own business when the light shined right into my eyes...what??????
Then Mom found me on the bed with her and this morning I was back to sleep above her pillow like I always do.
So today my mission is to stay with Mom and not let her out of my site...I just hate to not be home and not have Mom with me...after all guys I am a mama's boy and proud of it....I just loves my Mom she is the best Mom I could ever ask for...she saved me, nursed me back to health, fought vets and didn't give up till she found our Vet that took that extra test and interest in finding out why I was having breathing problems and always getting sick...so yes I am the lucky loving kitty boy because of my Mom...and she paid lots and lots of money to have my toofies cleaned so I wouldn't get sick from bad toofies and gums..
Sending lots of hugs and love to all of our friends who were here for me, purring and praying for me...thank goodness for friends!

Well Mom says I can't be here long I am doing good, but wobbly and sleepy. Mom and I thank you all for your purrs and prayers cause it worked it really worked.
To my Vet, me and Moms surprise I didn't have to have any toofies pulled, yeah right none, can you believe it at my age and with the gingivitis I had Dr. kathy really expected that I would have several pulled. I do have a couple that she will have to check when I go back in next year that might have to be pulled. Let's hope not one of them is my fang!
I have to have OraZn pet Oral Care put on my gums soon everyday or as much as Mom can & remembers....
So I came out of being under fine, but I must admit I am wobbly, I explored the house while Mom watched, I am in the front part of the house now in one of my favorite places to hang out. Mom took some pictures she will put on my page after she downloads them.
I am so hungry I actually ate a little, I wasn't suppose to but Mom gave me a little can just for now and she will give me more later.
So thank you all of my friends for being here for me and of course Mom she was stressing out I know all day until I was safely back at home.
Zeke's Mom, my sweet boy did great, he was very stressed they put a blanket in his cage and a towel to cover the front so he couldn't see out and be more stressed.
I heard from the Vet Tech around 11 or so, when I didn't hear early I got really worried, but prayed that every thing was going well. I knew he was in good hands, I had faith that he would be OK. All morning I prayed and asked Tallulah to watch over her brother.
I got the word that he didn't have any teeth pulled much to everyone's surprise, we expected he would have to have some pulled, so his teeth were in better condition that all knew, he got an antibiotic shot as well. They told me I could pick him up at 2, I couldn't wait to get him back and home again.
After seeing pictures of his before teeth cleaning and his x rays & talking to Dr. Kathy I got my boy, he was alert but groggy. Finally home he is sleeping on the floor in the front part of the house with Xena so the others can't bother him until I know he is more stable on his paws.....he was a trooper today and I am so proud on him.
I know many kitty angels including my Tallulah were there watching over him, we felt the love, purrs and prayers for Zeke today.
We both thank you for your love and support today we know it helped both of us get through this day, now he is home and resting on his way to feeling better.
Hugs to you all
Zeke and Peggy

Hi friends my Mom told me she is scared for me, you wanna know why I have to go to the Vet tomorrow to have my toofies cleaned and some pulled, not sure how many but will find out afterwards! I can use some purrs tomorrow because I have never been away from Mom all day, I get very very stressed; when I get stressed I get sick and sometimes I have an asthma attack...
Zeke's Mom- Yes I am scared for my sweet boy, he is such a mama's boy and he gets all worked up going to the vet, but to leave him I know he will be so very very stressed and think I have abandoned him there. Then he gets sick and has asthma attacks. I am going to be so worried about him, I know we all feel that way especially when we know they will be getting anesthesia, my vet does use the top of the line that is one reason I am doing this knowing it is better than a lot of vet use...
Before I leave I have to give him his asthma treatment and also take it along with his mask just in case. My Vet assured me that he will be monitored closely and he will be getting an antibiotic shot so it should help keep him from getting sick.
The other worry is Zeke likes dry food more than can, but he does eat it lots of times I actually have to hand feed him because he gets medication in his food, knowing that he is having teeth pulled he may not be able to eat the dry, he hates me to put water on his food. So it will be can, now he prefers fishy food pate mostly, hates chicken & turkey. So my options will be limited. He will also be getting pills to help him want to eat, sure hope that helps. Getting him to eat has always been a battle because he was so sick when I adopted him, had to make food and hand feed him for weeks, he couldn't smell...one reason he hates chicken got too much then.
It is going to be a long day for me and Zeke! just hope he will be Ok.... I will let you know how he is doing, Vet is going to call with updates during the day...now i just hope I can get him early afternoon, I know he will do better if he is with me at home.
So my friends now you know why Mom is scared for me...she is giving me lots of extra love today and telling me how much she loves me...I think I will be getting something good for dinner, my last meal till I feel better.
We love you all, sending our love,hugs, purrs and prayers!
Zeke & Mom

Hello my friends it has been a while since I last wrote in my diary, Mom is letting me update you on how I am doing and what is going on.
Well I have to say not much really, just enjoying life, hanging out with Kody, by the way have you seen him lately well he is big, yes big bigger than me and so much heavier...Moms says I am not big for a male kitty, boy Kody is big and heavy.
I love hanging out with Kody we sleep together a lot, but I must admit I am in bed sleeping with Mom and then Kody shows up, I just can't help myself I have to go to him bit him on the back of his neck and make all kinds of noises. It wakes up Mom she yells at us to stop it, but we don't then she has to sit up and pull me off of Kody. I used to do that to Tallulah too...now I say I can't help it I have to show him sometimes who is the oldest.
I do like to go out now that the weather is so nice and sunny out. Kody and I hang out a lot in our catio. I also hang out with Xena, I am the only one she doesn't get scared of and stays put.
I just love spending time with my Mom she is the best, now that she has been home more I get to sleep in her lap and I don't leave.
I went in for my check up a while ago and Dr. Kathy told Mom I need my toofies cleaned and it looks like I might have to have some toofies pulled...oh no not my toofies I love my kibble not sure if I will enjoy eating kibble if I lose my toofies...I like can too, but I love kibble.
I am doing well so Mom has made my appointment for this coming Tuesday June 4th...WOW can you believe it is June already!!!!
Mom is worried about me because when I get stressed I get sick with me having URI...and asthma. Speaking of asthma, this weather is causing me trouble lately...more puffs on my inhaler and getting the mask stuck in my face...but I am so very good for Mom, I just sit there and breathe in!
So Tuesday before I go not only will I be deprived of food, but Mom has to do my inhaler on me, she will take my inhaler & mask with me just in case I have an attack while there...I am scared like Mom, I have never been away all day from my Mom, I am a Mama's boy. I know I will be MEOWING really really loud for my Mom.
Well I need to go I have to get Mom to feed me it is almost my dinner time...
I will be sure to have Mom let you all know how I am doing until I feel better...hoping I will recover faster than Kandi and be my happy sweet self again.
Hugs my friends, thanks for loving us, supporting us and now I hope on Tuesday you will remember to purr for me while I am getting my toofies cleaned and some pulled...

OK as you know Dr. Kathy called Mom on Friday like Xena said in her diary...
Well I am doing well, my urine is a little diluted so Dr. Kathy wants to see me in 3 months to check again to make sure I am not showing signs of CRF too....
Otherwise I am doing good, just need my toofies cleaned and probably some pulled, but first Kandi goes in hers are worse than mine.
The Creatinine should be between 0.6-2.4, mine is 2.5 a little high so that is why I have to go back in to be rechecked.
Dr. Kathy was concerned I had lost a small amount of weight, but Mom looked through all of my vet visits it seems I go up and down but not by a whole lot. I go from 10+ up to 12. So she isn't concerned and neither is Mom. Now if I lost a lot of weight that would be a different story. I am just not a big boy kitty and I am not a good eater, lots of times Mom has to hand feed me my can food.
So that is it for now, we will let you know when I am scheduled for my toofie cleaning.
