So it is getting to be the warmest part of summer and I am loving it! Of course, I am in the air conditioning where it is never really that warm, but I am loving all those hot sun spots that are popping up all over the place!
The humans put up a bird feeder outside the window in the kitchen. That silly Maurice cat will spend hours staring at those birds. I'd spend hours staring at birds if I had the chance to catch them and decapitate them like I used to do, but it is hard to decapitate birds from behind glass, so I'm not all that interested in them. Maurice though, he loves it.
I'm still doing really good - eating a lot and getting lots of pets and enjoying myself. And being as stinky as I wanna be, hee hee!

I had a pretty good Fourth. The humans and the dogs went to go see the fireworks. They are shot off on the other side of town, so no noise bothers me. I spent most of the day snoozing in the sun - my idea of a good day!
The other day I discovered a new treat. Thousand Island salad dressing. My momma had eaten a salad and when she wasn't looking, I climbed up on the table she had the bowl on and started licking the dressing that was left. And it was good! I was really going to town on it, but she took it away from me, saying she didn't want me to get sick or something from it. Purrsonally, I think it's a little rude to take away a treat like that. She didn't even want her leftover dressing! The least she could've done was give me some kitty treats to make up for it, but no, she just stole my salad dressing.

First off, my typist wanted to say thank you to everyone who remembered Charlie's birthday and left gifts on his page. She and my momma have been very sad missin da little guy.
A couple days ago, I got all groomed. I used to hate getting brushed, but I love it now. I really like when the humans use the stripping comb - it is supposed to be for the dogs since they are terriers and have wiry hair, but it is really great at getting out all the old fur. And there was quite a lot of it! I felt really good after I got it down and the people were saying I felt even softer than usual.
Me and Maurice have been getting along better. He still wants to play too much for my liking, but he's been getting the dogs and the humans to play with him more and leaving me alone, which I like.

For some reason, both me and my dog pal Whitley have been DDPs for our entries about Charlie. It are kinda sad, because we are not in da celebrating mood. So as much as I'd normally appreciate them, please don't send any rosettes and save your zealies for another time.
I's been missing Charlie. I liked having da little orange dude around - he was real cute. I've been hanging out in his room lately and spending lotsa time with my oldest girl and trying to make her feel a little better. It are hard though. Everyone is just so sad. Maurice keeps looking for him, I don't think he really understands what happened.
It just really stinks because Charlie did not really get a chance. He was da sweetest guy and he deserved a lot better than he got outta life. Yeah, dis year was good. But next year woulda been better - he wouldn't have had to adjust to moving and dealing with all of the new animals and people here. It was like he were a flower that were just starting to blossom and somebody knocked down the flower before anyone got to see it in its full glory. He still wasn't completely comfortable in the living room, but he was starting to come out more and more.
We're all still missing him a lot.

My buddy Charlie had to go to sleep today. I's pretty down - our AARBK (American Association of Retired Bird Killers) meetings won't be happening no more. I mean, all Maurice has ever killed is a lizard and some bugs. Just not the same.
That little orange guy sure made everybody love him. Even I liked him, and I hissed Maurice until I couldn't meow no more when he showed up. I don't know why the humans didn't know Charlie was old, I knew it all along.
I'm gonna miss my buddy a lot. Hope he is up in heaven rippin' da heads of birds - maybe kitty heaven is da birdy bad place?? I don't know, but I'll miss him a lot.

Charlie is not doing good. His kidney numbers are still very high. Da vet says he's probably got renal lymphoma since his kidneys were enlarged on the ultrasound. He won't eat anything voluntarily - not even kitty treats and Fancy Feast fishie flavors.
Please send him all your purrs.

Please purr for Charlie. He are in kidney failure and are at the vet getting Eye-Vee fluids. Da little dude did not even want to eat Fancy Feast last night. His creatinine level was 9.8. He really needs all of our purrs.
I like dis little guy. He are nice and we've even been got grooming each other. He's had a very hard life and deserves a lot better than what he had in the past.

Today is Charlie's first Gotcha Day, even though I didn't meet him until a couple months later. The poor little guy did not have a good day today, he had to go to the vet and he found out he has tapeworms. So please send him some purrs, he has had it kinda rough lately with the eye problem and now this.
He's saying now that his worms are gonna be gone that he's gonna be able to gain weight and show Maurice who is boss. I think he means second-in-command, since those silly boys know I'm the real boss around here.

So I think I'm stuck in the DDP loop! Thanks to everyone for all the gifts, comments, and badges.
I've been having some fun with my typist lately, playing hide and go seek. I hide and she goes and seeks. And seeks and seeks. It's pretty funny to watch her look for me, she'll call me and I'll just watch her. Yesterday I was hiding in a tiny spot under the bed. Today I was hiding in dark corner back behind a chair. It's fun to watch her freak out looking for me.
If you haven't tried hide and seek with your humans, I highly recommend it. It helps them exercise their bodies by walking, bending, crawling on the ground, well you name it. And it exercises their brains too. And they're always happy when they find you. It's especially fun as an older cat because you know there's that worry that something has happened to you in the back of what passes for their brains. I don't know why she worries, I'm not going anywhere!
