I just had a terrible, scary day. Last night Meomwy began moving things around in the upstairs and in my room. By this morming, everything was moved and picked up. I knew from that, something was going on, so I hid. Bastet was sent to the porch and she didn't want to go. I decided I wasn't going to get caught and sent to the porch. Even though we love it out there, we go when we want to go. For several hours she and Meowmy were out there while I hid behind the family room sofa. Unfortunately I left my guard down and joined Meowmy in the bathroom like I like to do. The door shut, she picked me up and wisked me off to the porch where I stayed under the bed. Then there was a terrible humming noise like a loud vacuum cleaner. In a way Bastet and I were glad we were on the porch, because that terrible noise was scary. I was out there for 3 hours, 2 hours less than Meowmy and Bastet. Meowmy stayed with us with our kitty food and water. She had the porch ceiling fan blowing and the Vornado fan blowing which kept the porch down to 94 degrees. It was 99 outside with very high humidity. Because the sun comes directly east to west over the porch, it would get over 120 degrees when it was a deck and we couldn't use it. At this time I am inside and the carpet in my room is soaked and nothing is the same. Nothing is put back. Even though Meowmy had water and our kitty feed on the porch, I didn't eat I am starved. After a snack I am going to hide under the bed. At least it is dry under there. By for now. I hope everything will be back to normal very soon. I hate changes. Do you?

Meowmy and I are besides ourselves with worry. Since I am now Queen of the household, while Meowmy is at school during the day, I watch over my older sisfurs Miss Kitty and Baby and my younger sisfur Bastet. Miss Kitty has been suffering over a year with Pancreatitis and seems to be wasting away. She will not eat the vet's food unless Meowmy mixes it with canned tuna. Even with that she still gets sick and when I hear her crying before she is sick at her stomach, I run downstairs to see if I can help her. I think she likes me there and finds me comforting until Meowmy comes home. Meowmy has taken her to the vet for tests and he says there is no sign of cancer or parasites which is good news, but because she can't keep food on her stomach, she seems to be wasting away.
My baby sisfur Bastet can't seem to rid herself of the bacterial infection she began in mid August. Again this past week she became lithargic, not eating, drinking from our fountain, or using her litter box. She wanted to stay in her room, and wouldn't ask to go out on her leash. Meowmy stayed with her at night because she seemed to need Meomwy's comfort and I had to stay out of her room which made me very upset. I scratched and rattled the door trying to get in, but Meowmy wanted Bastet to rest quietly without playing with me. After school last Tuesday, Meowmy rushed Bastet to the vet for another battery of tests. The tests again showed no cysts, tumors, or blockages, and the Feline Leukemia test came back negative. However, again as in mid August a large amount of bacteria was present in her urine and she lost 1/2 a pound since then. This was alarming because in May she tipped the scale at just 7 pounds. Last Tuesday the vet gave her an antibiotic shot instead of pills and liquid as he did in August. Next Saturday she will receive another shot and he will run another battery of tests. After the antibiotics have been out of her system for awhile, Bastet needs to go back for another battery of tests to see if the bacterial infection is gone.
The vet is baffled and hopes there is no corrilation between her Hemophelia and this infection meaning that her immune system is shutting down. If this is the case, this could be very serious. Meowmy and the vet are looking at it like this. It was difficult to get the initial dosage of antibiotics in her, so perhaps she didn't receive enough to kill all of the bacteria thus the infection returned.
Today, Saturday, she did eat the experimental food the vet gave her and some Greenie Treats, used her litter box and drank a great deal of water. She wanted to come out of her room, so Meowmy let her go downstairs. She is now sleeping in the sunny living room. So we are all happy there seems to be some improvement and hope this continues.

After being home a little over 2 weeks because of snow, Meowmy had to go back to school and her students on Wednesday.
We we were not happy about that and let her know about it when she came home that afternoon. DO you think we greeted her at the door? NOPE!!! We ignored her. We just let her call and call our names. That Miss Kitty came for pets, so did Baby and Menes, but do we didn't. We didn't talk to her during our regular play time.
You see, every night after her shower around 7:30, she sits on the bed with us to play with our toys before she goes to bed at 9:00. Weeeellll, Bastet and I didn't want to play on Wednesday night. Meomwy tried and tried, but nope...we didn't want to play. We just sashayed down the hall.
The next thing I know, Menes, our BIGGGG brother, comes dashing upstairs and takes the toy downstairs. Bastet and I go to the steps and watch through the railing as Meowmy takes a video of Menes playing with OUR toy. He tries to take it downstairs to his apartment, but the door was shut. He...he...he...... So after a few minutes, Meowmy took the toy away from him, and brought it upstairs. Much to MY disgust, that video is on HIS page right now....HIISSSSSS....
By that time it was her bedtime. She put away the toy and went to sleep. But we pounced on her all night. So we showed her we didn't like her leaving us for her students.
