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.

I've been doing pretty good, still hiding from da humans sometimes, it sure are fun, MOL MOL! And I left a Lake Jezebel around da litter box. The humans are constantly surprised about how much I pee since I'm so small, but I'm just full of surprises that way, MOL!

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!

I'm a DDP and so is one of my doggie BFFs, Finley! So it is a pawty at our house! Thanks for all the gifts, badges, and comments.
I'm doing really good, the humans say I've been putting on some more weight. I'm nowhere near my glorious 18 pounds days, but they seem happy to see me happy to eat. I don't think I'd ever want to not eat, MOL!
I've taught Charlie how to meow really good, so now the humans can get loud meows in stereo! Maurice occasionally meows loud, but he just usually prefers to stick his face in the humans'. At least one of those pesky little brothers learned a proper loud MRRROWWWW!
It's definitely summer here - almost 90 degrees! And that's the way I like it, it makes the sunspots so much better to sit in!
My page is overflowing (or maybe over flowering, MOL!) with the free gifts! The Passover cup for Mother's Day made me MOL, and the flowers to correct the mistake is just pawsome! I tried to send them out to everyone, so I hope it worked.

Thanks Catster for making me a DDP! And thanks to all my pals for the comments and the badges and presents!
Today was a pretty good day, I spent a lot of time napping in the sun and on the ottoman. And I even "borrowed" some of Charlie's food - that Charlie is a pretty good guy, letting me snack on his food!
We're all enjoying the warm weather today - the dogs spent some time outside and I spent time in the window. Hope you're all enjoying some warm weather too!

So lately when I want to sit with someone, I crawl on their lap and I hover for a good five minutes before I decide to go ahead and sit down. Even if the human tries to help me go ahead and sit, I will stand back up and hover. Tonight, I crawled up on my momma's lap and was hovering. Only my back legs were still on top of our dog, Finley, who was on the ottoman. In fact, they were right on her neck! She didn't even wake up! Me and her are really good friends, I'm also good friends with Whitley the other dog.
My oldest girl says I'm lucky I don't weigh 18 pounds anymore because she bets Finley wouldn't have been so calm about me standing on her neck. Probably not, because 18 pounds is about what she weighs, MOL! I think that means Maurice better not try it. Even if he doesn't quite weigh that. Yet. Man, that guy can eat!

So today is my 20th birthday, or at least the day I celebrate, since I'm not telling anyone the exact day for sure!
So, I think two decades calls for some celebration. I've got piles of nip, niptinis, a salmon and tuna feast, chicken livers and turkey galore, lots of yummy cheese, saucers full of milk, shrimpies and crab, and some stolen baby back ribs!
So come on in and let's party!
