Oh My Cat!!!
Ya know how sometimes I likes ta has a itty bitty piece a'turkey fur a treat, even when Mommy doesn't buys it fur herselfs...and I only likes a particular brand (I wrote about it once MOL!) well, Mommy had bought some fur me and by mistake, the package had 1/2 turkies and 1/2 ham...GARRRROSSS is what my mommy said. But furst, we also gotta say, if any furrriends mommies likes that, it's kewl! Mommy just doesn't 'cause she feels bad fur the animals. But anymeow, she tried ta give the hams ta furrriends, but no one wanted it, so she decided ta see if I liked it and I LOVED IT!!! I only get the teeeeeniest piece, and Harrison gets a teeeeeny piece too when we are togethfur (him in the carrier) and it's ta makes us has yum yums and positive 'speriences. But now, I meow and meow fur tha stuffs! Mommy walks in tha kitchen and I walks to tha fridge. Mom opens tha door, and I go right in, sniffing and sniffing fur the stuffs.
Mommy even tried ta tricks me with it though and since I still don't wanna go in the bedroom (it stinks of Harrison) she put a little trail of yum yums on the floor into there, but when I saw what she was up to, I ated all the pieces and when I got in tha room, I grabbed that yum yum in my mouth fast and I went inta the living room ta eats it in peace. She called me a stinker. I just am particular ya know?
I still don't wanna go in the bedroom though, like I said. So Harrison has gotten ta sleeps with Mommy now fur a few days. She says he sleeps like a log...
She did sleeps with me too though a little on the magic couchie we has in the living room. It's magical 'cause it's just tha most comfy couchie in tha worlds. I sleeps on there by myselfs too, when I'm not in my cat tree.
And yes, I am still workin on being furrriends...with HIM. Mommy lets him hang with us only if he's in a carrier and then we get lots of treats. He still watches me though like I is tha treat, not the yum yums Mom puts in the carrier. I swears, I could tell him I don't taste like morsels of chickins and he still wouldn't believe me! But I am not hissing at him in the carrier at all. And I still don't wanna play with Mommy, but I still play with my special only fur me ball, so Mommy is ok with that fur now.
Nothing else ta reports fur now I guess. Mommy still is waiting ta sees when me and HIM should be together again-in one of tha books we are reading, called "Is your Cat Crazy?", tha doc doc talks about a sishuashion where there were two kitties and one was tryin ta be top cat, and the regular top cat wasn't happy about it and was peepeeing on evfurrywhere the take-over cat sat...but when they tried ta affirm the regular top cat's posssishun, she didn't wants ta do anything unless tha take over cat was there, so they though the takeover cat won...
So, Mommy is trying ta figures out if thats like what's happening at our house-'cause I seem purrrfectly happy not sleeping with Mommy and Harrison has calmed down now that he has been getting tha bedroom with her, and doesn't even cry when he has a turn in the bathroom (when Mommy wants me ta explores his scent in the bedroom) I guess we won't knows fur sure until we HOPEFULLY get ta meet the behavior guy when he is back ta appointments in Nov. Our vet doc doc just keeps saying ta be patients. And still has us taking medicines-we got the cream fluoxitine again 'cause the sweet livfur flavfur liquid was awfuls...even though Mommy read that sometimes the cream isn't as reliable, but anything's gotta be better than that flavfur that we spit all out anyways and made tha floors all sticky with when we spitted it! MOL!

I hasn't written fur a few days. I am kinda hissing 'cause fur some reason I am not receiving any updates anymore from Catster!!! I have missed pawmails-not because I don't logs in, but because I logs in late and miss them right when I gets one! And it's making me sad! Even Pen Paws!!! My favfurite group, well, I just got my list now fur Halloweeeeen cards 'cause I nevfur got the notification that I had PM and whenevfur I logs into my account, it reboots back to tha log in screen saying I has to re log in again so it took me a few tries to akshully get onto my page!
So many kitties and I am missing all the news! So sorry dear furrriends.
In other stuffs, I am ok lately. I decided aftur cuddling with Mommy all last week that I no longer wants to cuddle with her in the bedroom. It could has to do with the smell of a cat I smells-but she brought me a sock or two that smelled like him and I was ok-I even ate a treat off of one! But I guess that cat was in the room and so I'll go in if there are treats, but then I wants OUT! So I am sleeping up high on my cat tree-in Indy's old spot. Ya know, comes ta thinks of it, this tree kinda smells like that cat too, but only the second shelfs-he didn't go up top I guess-maybe he was saving the spot fur me. But I gotta says, I hasn't akshully seen him in tha fur yet-'cept his paw by tha door and stuffs. Can I asks a question, and if you akshully can respond, (I hopes you can) let me know-should my mommy keeps keeping us separate like we is or try to go forward? seeing that all the stuffs we read has advice that's a little different, we are trying ta do things that "fit" my purrrsonality.
And I gotta tells you, Mommy said he is still super interested in me whenever he gets a glimpse of the outside of whatever room he is in, so she is nervfous of what to do, 'specially with no roomate or nothings ta help. She did put him in a carrier twice fur eating-he was fine, and I watched. Then later on she puts him in and put my food near and I ate all my yum yums while he sat in the carrier-and I did a little hissy, but not a big one. Then I sat on my cat tree, so Mommy put him and the carrier on tha couch and we hungs out fur a few minutes befur she let him in the other room...I think I did ok, but am still scared.
That's all the mews fur now I thinks...I guess I'll go halps Mommy read ovfur more cat behaviors advice-I think we has set a record fur how many books we has! We has 6 from tha library, including one that is akshully a Veterinarian's feline behavior book-we was happy it wasn't a "reference" material that ya can't checks out-plus we boughts anothfur one, "think like a cat" since we has "cat vs cat" and "psycho kitty" and "cat wrangling made easy" and "outwitting your cat" and "starting frums scratch" and "naughty no more"...naughty no more is greats if ya wanna click train and stuffs, Indy was good at it, but we is just not that interested! Oh, and I am sure Mommy has more too-we is gonna starts our own cat behavior library ya know!

Furst I have to thank my furrriends, Teebo, Callie and Rose fur the Pumpkin! And Molly Angel fur the Heart! Thank you so much. I know I missed thanking a couple of furrrs, purlease accept my apologies. I will look back on my page and see if they are still there so I can thank you =)
There is a cat in the bathroom-I'm not sure if it's Harrison or not, but it sure sounds like it is, but I's so curious. I've been watching ovfur the door and stuffs to hear what's going on in there. It's meowin and sometimes I hear the litter being scratched, but I know it's not me using the box, and I even hear somefur eating some yum yums too...maybe it's a stranger cat. Tha good mews is that my food bowl is kinda nearby-well see, it's against tha wall that's at tha hallway door, which leads ta the bathroom door, and I can eats and listen at the same time. Ya know, when that Harrison was here, I didn't wants ta eat much at all when I could see him. Does you think that this fur is him in disguise? Mommy keeps sneaking in there throughout the evenings and I hear her talking and stuffs to the fur and playing and it's like they is having a chat 'cause when she talks it mews back ta her. I even heard him chewin on some toy and scratchin a scratcher.
hmmmm...ya know what too-this dude that's in there like, drooooools a lot too, like Harrison did. Why would Mommy get another furrr that droooools so much? Unless I am eating my fishies like I had fur dinner and had on my lips, I nevfur droools.
Last night too I didn't has to take that icky medicines! Who evfur thought that sweet liver would be tasty is a doggie most likely. I did get a nice ear massage though and Mommy even puts this soft creams on my ear when she rubbed them. I still got my boo-boos and Mommy keeps trying ta sprays the medicines on them and sometimes I let her, but when I don't, she puts it on a washcloth and dabs them. It's not too bad.
Ya thing the fur in the bathroom is a nice one? I wonder if Mommy is gonna try ta introduce us or what.

I'm sure by now most of my furrriends have read Harrison's diary, but I wanted ta takes a moment here ta tell you my version of tha story, even though it's probably tha same as my Mom's, BUT, she loves Harrison and me so maybe she sounds like she's got favfurites or something.
Tha day was going good-like most Sundays, ya knows? I slept in tha bed room with Mommy that night before, but didn't on Friday 'cause I was having fun on my cat tree in the living room, and on Sunday I was having fun in my window seat, so I decided that I would stay there fur the day. I was all stretched out nice on the bed on the fuzzy blankie that Indiana and I used ta shares, and Mommy was in the living room with Harrison. She decided that she would come back with me, and had stuffs in her hands (it's her faults I swear!) and went through the baby gate and usually Harrison is not so anxious to leap ovfur it, but this day was not like any other-of course too this weekend I was getting better with him and watching him close and eating my foods, even though he was staring at me...but anyways, his defurmination was strong like a Jedi cat! He jumped ovfur the gate and Mommy reached quickly ta shut the door but he was still too quick. Well me, being a princess a'purrrfections, I just looked up from the bed where my pretty little head was layin and alls a sudden HE HIT ME!!! I flew off tha bed and he did too, and Mom threw tha stuffs on tha floor and flew too-and somehow my pee leaked out again, and then the nightstand moved, and I moved and Harrison moved and Mommy moved too-all the way to the other wall where she put her hands on Harrison and he settled and I made a run fur it.
His collar came off a'him and evfurrything and he was already wearing his Calming Collar. Mom left him in tha room a'disarray and came to check on me. I was ok by then, just shook up and wanting some affections. Mommy immediately decided that my affections had ta wait, 'cause a something in a behavior book saying don't baby the "victim cat" but also, she decided that Harrison needed ta calms down and she needed ta clean up too-so she took one of the cat trees and put it in the bathroom, along with Harrison and shut tha door!
That meant it was my turn though-fur a washcloth bath, and boy I didn't wants it, but taht was also too 'cause I was hurting a lot. I didn't let Mommy see right away, but I was hurting fur sure. Mommy helped me clean up my not so fluffy pants and I wanted ta cuddles, so she let me. She got some of tha Spirit Essences too and put some on my forehead and paws. Harrison knew he did a naughty 'cause not a yeowl or mew was heard from the bathroom.
A little while later Mommy noticed that I didn't wants ta eat my dinner, and I love dinner. she looked me ovfur and then she saw it-I had a baaaad booboo right underneath my right paw-underarm area-kinda hidden if you wasn't looking fur it. Mommy tried ta pick me up and I wasn't happy. she gots a washcloth and washed it off-it was icky and bloody, and then she decided I needed ta see the vet doc doc, just in case.
Well, I had no objections fur once...she wrapped me up in my soft pink blankie and put me in the carrier and off we went. It was scary fur both of us 'cause, well I nevfur went to the emergency place and the furst and last time Mommy went was when Indiana became my angel brofur. Akshully she did hope that the same doc doc was there, but she wasn't-we got some big ol'musclie dude who wasn't very good if ya asks me. But the guy who checked us in was so nice ta me-he gave me so much loves and was so gentles 'cause he knew I hurt, and guess what-he and Mommy even found another boo-boo that I had!
SO back ta this musclie dude-he was kinda a meat head MOL! That's how Mommy felt, I wonder if it was turkey meat-anymeow, so he had them clean my wounds and stuffs and I had ta get my hair shaved by them, and then I had ta gets needles, like fur infection and fur pain. Mommy had a question aboout the pain stuffs though 'cause I had some medicines left ovfur at home fur pain and when Mommy read online if it interacted with my fluoxitine, it said yes, and something about heartrates-and this turkeybutt head said that you can't get good info on tha internets always, and that I was gonna get tha lowest dose pawsible. Well, Mommy was skepticle, but the nice guy who helped us in said not to worry at all, and Mommy remembered how good they were to Indy when he was so sick, and thank goodness this boar's-head faced doc doc wasn;t there that night.
I was out quickly, in about an hour fur the whole thing. There were some other sad cases there that night-one lady had a doggie she had just rescued from tha shelter a couple days befur bleeding from somewheres that she shouldn't be! Another couple brought in a doggie who was all dressed in a sweater and jewels and they rushed that doggie right in, something about ingesting some kinda substance that not good, of tha drugs or something kind, and had ta get put on an IV-and then there were these two doggies and Mommy tries not ta judge, but this lady was not kewl-one doggie was on tha floor and the other on their mom's lap, and they were about my size, and the one that was sick was throwin up and then when they finally went ta takes her in, she just let the sick doggie roll off her lap and plop-boom, bump itself on the floor! She didn't even try ta helps him up! His name was Caesar, and poor Caesar was not feeling well. The nice guy that helped me rushed ta helps him and his mom wasn't even like blinkin an eye, and was just like-oh he must be clumsy 'cause he's sick. *hiss*
So now I am home-the other thing Mommy didnt likes about this beefy-juice dude is that he should not be tha er vet if he isn't gonna thoroughly checks cats out 'cause he totally missed like two more boo-boos I had that Mommy found yesterday!!!!!! She missed them too, but the doc doc's job is to check-and if they were checking and shaving fur the other ones, why did they overlook this?! But I am ok, Mommy is happy I am ok, and I has the medicine we gots ta put on me fur now, so she just put it on those spots too. I got the 'partment to myselfs and fur extra comfurts I have been snuggling really close to Mommy, something I hasn't done in awhile, 'cause my window seat is so comfy. So close that I thought she's like a nibble on my toesies and so I put them right in her face MOL!
Harrison is hanging in the bathroom still. I know he's there, but I'm not upset. Mommy spoke with our vet doc doc Monday and she said to please not give up all hope yet, and lets try Harrison on a different medicine, since that one obviously didn't helps him with the aggressions towards me, mostly just with his crying a lot.
So that's what's happening. Thank you furrriends fur all the help you have been giving my Mommy. She feels bad that she hasn't tried everything (like the giant crate and stuffs) and is working her best to figure this out. She called tha behaviorist dude again too, and left a message. She's got more Feliway too and the essences and stuffs and calming air spray too. I wanna like Harrison-I did at furst a little, it's just gonna take more time and loves and patience. Maybe he wants ta be top cat-maybe he was just so tired a being separate from me that I am like a tease he just couldn't stands ta avoids anymore-I am not sure.
Ingen is almost home too! I have missed all my furrriends special days these last couple of days, but my purrrrs are with you always.
Also, if you furrriends wouldn't mind purrring fur a doggie, one of our good furrriends that we made on Catster has a doggie who is feeling so sick. His name is Augie and he is going to the vet doc docs-Purrr fur him that he's ok, not scared and that his mommy is ok, thank you furrrs =)
PSSS-Ya know, I wrote this in my comments when one of my bestie furrriends commented that we has patience in our house and I thought it was important ta add it to my diary too-See, it's so weird 'cause I am the one who got hurt and stuff, and am scared because of Harrison, but I am doing ok even though I has my wounds...but I think the reason Mommy is trying so hard ta makes it work is because when she went into the bathroom to visit Harrison and give him yum yums, all he wanted to do was clumb up to Mommy and have her hold him. Like, he needed ta put his head on her chest and just squish as hard as he could inta her, and she sees how much it seems like he needs love and patience. so that is why she keeps trying.

do you know what Harrison did last night?! Well, let me tell ya! Somehow, 3 gates high, he managed ta climb ovfur into the bedroom area of my 'partment! That's right, it's mine, even though Mommy pays tha bills. I am tha princess here! And he tried ta come in and he almost did too, but Mommy jumped up and got him as he was squeezed inta the small space between the tallest baby gate and the doorway! she picked him up and he looked right at me and tried ta jumps in my directions, and Mommy closed tha door, so like a ZOMBIE hungry fur brains(I swears!) he reached under tha doorway, which is already bigger than a normal under tha doorway space, and was pawwwwwing his way ta me, even though the door stopped him! I got up close akshuully, but when his paws started shakin, I hissed and ran onto tha bed to wait fur Mommy to come back to sleep.
What a flooofybutt.
Otherwise, I guess things are ok-I have been hanging out in the tallest cat tree in the living room, where Indy used ta sleeps, and when Mommy comes towards me, unless she's got a smooch ready fur me, I try ta cuddle small and invisible 'cause I think she's gonna give me that medicines stuffs. Which, good fur her, she mixed some catnip treats in it and when she went ta gives it to Harrison, it backfired and got her right in tha eye and tha kisser! So now she knows what sweet livfur medicines tastes like!!!
Harrison did look at me a lot too 'cause Mommy let him in tha room fur, like a minute only, befur he wanted ta run ta me, and I didn't hiss one bit until she picked him up and walked closer in my directions...Ya know, when I used ta see Indy, my favfurite thing ta do was ta sniffs his tail and lick his chin, until he would try ta wrestle, and I started ta do that with Harrison aftur that furst week he was here...I wonder if I will be able ta do that with him evfur again.

My Mom is getting me so mad! SHe is makin me takes this medicines that she squirts inta my moufth and it's s'posed ta tastes like liver, but it tastes like liver AND sugar!!!! EEEW! Tha Tabbies o'Trout Town was rights!!!! It's always gotta be fishies! I think it's soooo yucky that I droooool like Harrison and then Mommy's feet stick to tha floors 'cause it's sticky MOL!
Also, MOmmy changed tha bed this weekend-what's up with that! It's still kewl 'cause I can still fit underneath it, but it's got nothing at the end fur me ta jumps on like befure, I guess it's tha foot board? I thought it was tha Kitty Pryde launching pad fur me ta jumps from my window seats. Plus, tha other night Mommy let Harrison sleeps with her and kept me in tha sala!!! I am s'posed ta sleeps with her, but I guess it was my faults 'cause when she broughted me inta the beddie room I ran out...
So yah, what a week so far! And it's cold! And Harrison's got new yum yums from tha vet doc doc and Mommy gave me some of those yum yums too, even though I am not a stinky butt.
I miss my sweetheart Riley and his brofur Skippy, I think that's what is wrong!

My mom is crazies. It's like, if ya does something as a cat once, these pawrents like, expects you ta does it again and again!
Fur examples, fur some reason we has been getting lots a'spidahhhs in our apartment lately. Ew, gross, fur MOM! Fun fur me! And if I see the buggies, I'm gonna chase it, it's like, the natural cat thing ta do (except fur Harrison, but he is weird and doesn't pays attenshions and just wants ta lay with Mommy!!!) But yuk yuk, since I would nevfur eat the rechhhhid thing! I likes my fishies, not creepy crawlies in my tummy tum tum! And everytimes there is a bug, like a spidahhh that was in the laundry basket this morning (GAROSSSSSS) well, Mommy gasped and jumped and danced, but not fur happies I don't think, and then she said, "Kitty! Come here! Kitty" and ta tells you the truths, I was just too comfy cozy in my window seat to even look at what she was talking about. I just made my eyes get all big n stuffs like I was interested, and then I put my head down on my paws and went back ta sleep and let her handle the sishhhuashions.
And anothfur thing too about my mommy that makes her crazies is that even in tha middle of the nights...even then, she is telling me stuffs like ta come here, when I am all cozy...it's like she wakes up and is dreamies of me or somethings. I hope not all mommies are like that fur my furrriends! 'Cause if that's not bad enuffs, I got Harrison in tha living room meowin ta come in, not as much as before, but still, he does it at tha precisely exactly right time evfurry morning-when Mommy has ta gets up fur work. It akshully helped kinda the other day 'cause she overslept and he got her up fur works, but he still hasn't learned that some days are specials fur sleeping late.
So yah. I think my mommy's lost it fur shure-I mean, ya know, I likes ta be cozy on the perch in tha living room too and she moves me to tha bedroom fur bedtimes! Why can't I just stays where I is! But she says she doesn't want me ta feel upsets if tha routine is different and I don't gets ta sleep by her like ushual...mommies...so difficults!
PS! Tabbies!!! I has a very important question!!!! My mommy is getting my medicines in a flavfur called liver...LIVER!??! No fishies?!?!!! Is Liver flavfurs good? purlease tell me it is!

Oh yes, I had ta go to tha vet doc doc this weekend-I went to the other one though, the one that Mommy has taken Harrison to and I really liked them and I don't has a bad rap there like I do at my vet from that one time...(you know the one, with the blood vampires poking me bad!) and this doc was so sweet and talked so nice and they even carried me around in my pink blankie instead of making me go in the carrier when they took me all around the doc doc office.
So the word from the doc doc though is that I needs ta has another dental 'cause my gums are a little pinker than normals again. Plus, the doc doc wants ta gives me some medicines to help me with my confidence and something like, ta takes edge off. Alls I can says is that Harrison was a doofus this weekend and was sleeping on one of tha window perches and so I decided ta eat some yum yums, evfur so quietly, and he heard me in my quietness and looked about ready ta make some quick ninja moves, so I hissed likes tha strengths of a thousand nunchucks and then Mommy put him away in the other room.
Last night too, I just didn't wants ta sleeps in the bedroom like usual-in fact, when Mommy brought me in there, I dashed out superfast like, and so I didn't sleep there, I slept on top of the cat tree in the living room-I hope Mommy isn't upsets with me-she said awwww Kitty c'mon! but I just put my head on my paws and closed my eyes.
Being a kitty is hard!

Yestfurday was Meow like a Pirate Day, and boy, I was just the pretty little lass on tha ship, also known as the tops of the cat tree, lookin out at the horizons of the dangerous seas a'my 'partment!
And! I was a DDP too-so that was swell!
Thanks to all my furriends who helped ta celebrate both occashions! Arrrrrr!
Thanks fur the Jolly Rogers to:
Dagger Toes Simone and furmily
Lucy, Chawwlie and Leo and furmily
Wanda, Norman, Tess and furmily
The Catfather himselfs and furmily
Novi and Ingen
Tink, plus Tink fur the Ribbon
Mercy, Oly and furmily
Da Tabbies o'Trout Town
and Monster fur the Ice Cream cone!
It was a good day fur tha most part-I got lots a loves and stuffs and Harrison tha stinky butt came out into tha living room ta say hi, but I hid by my cat tree...But that cat made me do the peepee dance this morning Arrrrr! I was minding my own business, eating my breakfast yum yums while Mommy was with him in the living room givin him his medicines and then she saw him laying down in the window seat, so when she went ta get the baggie ta clean up the poopies in the box, well, he decided ta sneaks ovfur the gate and say Ahoy, and a'course, I got scurrrred of that blurrr o'floof and peepee danced right there on my spot on tha floor and sounded the meows of alarms fur Mommy and ran, and Harrison ran too, but not too fast-I felt like I was a science pawroject or somethings and I was under his observashions...so there he went, back in the bedroom and there I went, on top of the cat tree ta keep lookout fur dangers.
Fur reals, I think I might be making more of a fuss fur Mommy's attenshions 'cause aftur she cleaned up my peepee dance stuffs, I rolled around fur her and showed her my tummy and wanted her affections...I got a kiss on the forehead, but no treats! no fairs!
So that's my Pirate day and this morning-I guess Harrison just wanted ta say hi-but I gots a sneakin suspishions that he may has been causing trouble!

Concats to myselfs and the other kitties chosen fur DDP's today and other honors! We are all so special evfurry day, but it's kewl to get chosen sometimes too!
Thanks Tink fur the Ribbon!(pink's my best color)
Thanks to Tabatha fur making me a pic, which I will post later and Thanks to Buddie and his furmily fur the message!
I had a good weekend, especially aftur I was brave and tuff with the stranger! Mommy moved around the furniture in tha housie too, and I akshully likes it-I've been running around checking out all the new spots ta hide and everything. I did make some pawrogress with Harrison too, fur a little bit anyways-he had to go to the vet doc doc Sat morning and then when he came back, he got put in the beddie room. Since Mommy's furriend, my auntie Raven, was ovfur helping ta organize the furniture, Mommy thought she would try ta let us cats interact...well, Harrison came walking out all kewl in his harness with skulls, and I hissed, but Mommy played with him a little and then I was ok. then later, she left the gates off 'cause we was both sleeping and I got ta wakes up and 'slores the bedroom and he didn't run at me.
I hissed at him and ran though Sunday when he looked at me through the gate-We hasn't gotten a crate, Mom checked some out, but they were so expensive and too small. We know it takes a long time though-and ya knows, Mommy had that Harrison stink on her all weekend, from his droolies and his floof, and I just sniffed her and licked those stink spots on her clothes and skin...i wanted ta knows if he tasted stinky too.
I'm a lady, but it's Meow like a Pirrrrrate day, so I am gonna be a tuff sugarplum today MOL!
