*sigh* I is doing that fur Mommy 'cause that's how she feels right now. And she is keeping up the works and being pawsitives, but right now she is feeling a bit down in the litterbox. Maybe it's other stuffs, so it makes our kitty stuff seem worse than it is, but she's getting discouraged about pawrogress.
It's like, we is doing evfurrything, but I still get awwwwl upset when I has to go into the bedroom and I pretty much just park my kiester on tha cattree, and Harrison wants ta play, but now aftur a full week a'playing, he's not so interested anymore, specially 'cause he realized that he gets yum yums aftur. So he just wants tha yum yums.
Ya know-and Mommy is so emoshiunals like my furrriends pawrents too when something isn't good with their furrrrs too-and when I am just hanging on the cat tree and stuffs, sometimes I think, she thinks I am awwwl sad 'cause I don't wanna cuddle or something, so she feels bad, like I is not getting my needs met and stuffs. Plus, she feels bad that I is alone awl day, then sleeps alone in the living room at night-and isn't that crazy fur a mom ta worry about such a small thing like that?
So I guess she's just feeling sorries fur herselfs, and I can understands that 'cause I feel sorries fur myselfs when I go to the refrigerator and meow fur turkey pieces (sorry tabbies!!!) and I don't gets none!
We has a talk with the doooood again on Monday and then scheduled tha visit fur the end of December, but I just don't know if I is gonna be ready to meet Harrison face ta face again, let alone be ready anytime soon. I do like to peek at the door to his room and stuffs, but when Mommy lets me out of the bedroom, I run sooo fast ta get outta there, it's like I gots fire in my pants!
On a happy thing, my good good furrrriends Leo, Lucy and Charrrrrlie are Cheezburgers MOL! It's sooooo pawsome! And I is thinking about my furrriend Natasha too, who had a vet doc doc appt. I hope you are doing ok sweet furrriend.

ya know, I know I am the prettiest girl in the whole wide world, and Mommy is lucky ta has such a precious jewel of a girl in her lifes, but sometimes it can be hard to keeps that pretty girl catitude when you has stuff going on at home. And by stuff, I mean Mommy making me switch rooms more than once a day! I have been doing it, but I still squirm and squish and squeeeeel when she does it-'cause I know that she is gonna put me in the bedroom. And she doesn't like me to be unhappy too-so now she's gotta sneaks up on me and just give me lots of affections so that way it throws off the surprise sneak ups when I get put in the room. of. doom.
The room of doom used to be my favfurite place where I used to sleep with Mommy evfurrynight and sleeps on the window perch, while Indy slept on the bed, and it was a kewl place just to hang. Now that the window perch is gone (oh the velcro came off and Mommy didn't put it back up yet) and there is a window height cat tree there, I hang there when I is forced...against my wills(!!!) to sit in there. Mommy even puts my yum yums beside me, since now she sees that in the room of doom, that one perch is my whole comfurt zone, and like, tha rest of the room is kinda like the forcefield thing in the hallway too-we can't sees it, but it's there. So we is workin on that one.
But a kkkkeeeeewl thing that happened this weekend is Mommy built a shelf fur me to climb up on from my cat tree, to the top of the bookcase! She bought anothfur one too-but aftur this one was measured carefully (yeah right! I was there MOL!) it is still crooked, but straight and secure enuffs where I can still sit on it and stuffs. I was frightened of it at furst, but then alls a sudden there were treats going from my cat tree, to the shelf, to the top of the bookcases! it was fun!
I also has been chasing the string toy more-and I even did something I hasn't done in a long time-Mommy was in the baffffroom lookin in the mirror and I came right in and jumped up onto tha toilet seat and then teh sink to see what she was doing! I usta like helping Mommy get ready and stuffs, and even though I just was there fur a minute or less, it was nice to see our pretty faces in tha mirror together...cause when I was a kitten she used ta hold me and we had a diff'rnt apartment then with a huge wall mirror in the bathroom, so she used to show me what a pretty girl I was all the times. it was specials.
Oh and one more thing-MOL MOL MOL!!!! you know what Harrison did this morning!!!! And It's funny fur me and fur Mommy, although Mommy feels bad!!! Well, Mommy cleaned the litterboxes yesterday and we has three total-one in the bedroom, one in the kitchen and one in the bathroom-well, she moved the cattree out of the bathroom this weekend and stuffs, and she cleaned the box in there, and she puts awwwl the dirty litter in a paper grocery bag, then puts that in a plastic bag-well the bag was sooo heavy and she felt sooo sick last night, so she didn't bring it in the garbage, and didn't put new litter in that bathroom box, 'cause I always use the kitchen one and Harrison only is in the bathroom fur like a minute when we does the room switch...well Harrison is akshully a good boy, even though you better furgets that I said that!!! He had to go potty, the peepee dance kind, and awls a sudden Mommy heard the paper bag and she went in tha room and Harrison climbed up onto the paper bag on top of the old litter and peepeed in the bag itselfs MOL! And there was no mess 'cause it awwwl got sucked up in the litter....so I guess he's not awwwl that bad.

I have been evfur so sneaky lately, that Mommy thinks that she might calls me that from now on! I can sneaks up behind her and sneak inta the refrigerator when she's got it open (so I can looks fur yum yums!!!) and I even sneaks out of the bedroom when I get stuck in there evfur so quickly that last night she akshully went ta see how comes I hadn't snuck out yet, and I was right behind her MOL!
I'm also sneaky 'cause...shhhhhh!!!!! I been sneakin peeks at Harrison from under tha bedroom door-so quietly I sneaks there, that you can't even hear tha pitter-patter of my purrrrfect pink paws on tha hard wood floor. And when Mommy sees me sneakin a peekieboo, she tries, not so purrrfect like me, ta sneeeeeeeek with me, but then I runs away-'cause I don't wanna be caught checkin out that fluffy stinker!
And ya know, Mommy made me go inta the bed room last night and that stinky butt made a big ol'stinkin mess in tha box!!! As if I would evfur put my purrrfect pink pawsies in there aftur that one. And Mommy made me stays in that room fur an hour!!! It was 'cause there was a little old dude ovfur ta repair tha heater and so she was with Harrison tryin ta gets him ta play, but still. peeeeyeeeewwww! I guess tha only good part was that when that little old dude got that scuuuurrrry machine ta sucks up all the stuffs from tha floor I was safe in tha bed room and Harrison was out there and I think he had ta has gotten a fright in him from tha loudness!
I has been getting good yummy treats though, with tha clicker. I even was chasing around the string toy that usta has a mousie on it-besides my special green and while ball it's like tha only things I want to play with right now. But evfurrything else is ok I guess. I am just hungries! I want my yum yums all the time, but only gets them now at certain times, fur the last couple of days...That's not kewl, so I mew and mew and tell Mommy I'm hungry and she just says ta me, "I hear you Kitty, I hear you!" BUT SHE DOESNT FEEEDS ME, THAT WOMAN I CAWWWWLS MOMMY!
What is a girl ta do?
Concats to my goooooood furrrrriend Angel Alex too! She is the Cat of tha Week! What an honor!!! I betcha if she was at home she would get foods on demand MOL! But at the Bridge tha foods is abundant and plentifuls, and you don't even gets a tummy ache from all the toooooona I bet!
Yours and yum yum wishes,
Hugs and Bonks,

I feel so lucky!
Today has been a good day. I a'course got put into the beddie room twice, which feels like time out! but it was ok I guess, and I got lots of treats today when Mommy clicked this thing and then put treats down-that was the most fun akshully. Now I am just taking it easy with Mommy on the couch, keeping her warm with my kitty heart fire!
I has to say too, how truly sad I became earlier. I heard that poor Jack, the kitty lost at the airport back in Mommy's home town, became a Rainbow Bridge Angel today. He was such a fighter and with that strength he kept fighting to get better, but his injuries were just too much fur his body to fight anymores. I am so happy he got ta see his Mommy befure he made his journey. That makes me the happiest ta know that he got to see her, because he had to has been so scurrred this whole time. Sweet Angel Jack, we at my house will nevfur furget you and purlease look fur Indy at the Bridge. He is such a special boy and will helps you ta feel safe.

Oh man!!! Catster fleas!!!! I wrote this whole diary and then when I tried ta save it, it went blank!!! I hope I can remember all tha stuffs I just wrote!!!
So, tha day started when this doooood came ovfur my house. I liked him right away and went ta says hi ta him. He was so nice and said what a purrrrty girl I am and stuffs. Then ya know what he did!!! He looked around and took my hiding boxes away!!! He told Mommy that I can't has places ta hide where Harrison might wanna chase me to, and has no place ta run to! He also said that he thinks Harrison just thinks I is a toy, better than all tha other toys, 'cause not only does I run, make noise and is soft, but I pee too, and all the other toys don't do that when he chases them!
He said I needs ta go into tha bedroom too, even if I don't wanna, 'cause Harrison needs ta has time, even if it's only 20 minutes twice a day, ta run and play in a big space, so he can see how much cooler the cat toys are ta chase than I am. He even tried ta has Mommy and them himselfs put me in the bedroom, but I didn't wanna and I scratched Mommy and tried ta nibbles on him when they tried ta put me in there....see, there is this invisible line that I don't wanna cross and he could see, and showed Mommy how ta tell, that when I got to a certain point in the 'partment, my confidence went from kewl and collected ta frightened and scurrrred. So we gotta works on that and help my comfurrt level. My homework was ta get into tha bedroom and aftur he left, Mommy did put me in there, and I was ok, even though I didn't likes it at furst.
So he also said that 'cause of my comfurts, I had ta has my food bowl moved so I would just walk right up ta it and away, instead of peeking around fur Harrison eat time I want ta eat. Harrison's bowl has ta move too, even though he is comfurtable wherevfur it is. I also am gonna get treats treats treats! He did want Mommy ta click and treat me again, but without the part that I has to touch something fur a treat. I just hear the click and get a yum yum, so whenevfur I hear the click, I know tha yum yums come.
I basically gots a month about ta get my scurrrred kittyness better, and then he is gonna come back ovfur and helps Mommy to akshully introduce me to Harrison. In tha meantimes, Mommy has ta make some changes, the kind like moving my food closer based on my comfurrts and the play stuffs with Harrison. He says he's got so much hopes 'cause I am such a happy and kewl kitty in tha way I interacts and stuffs, I just am nervfous with Harrison 'cause I just expects badness ta happen.
He thinks Harrison is a good dude-I'm not so sure about that MOL! But, I guess if Mommy works hard and doesn't push my comfurrts (that's her homework!) then maybe I will see what a good dude he is too. But fur sure tha most important thing is ta makes me feel safe in all tha places in my home, but let Harrison get his playtime out too so he doesn't play with me!
He told Mommy too that she's gotta trust her insticts with us, 'cause they are sooo right, but she's gotta trust them. So if she thinks that I can move a step up, then ta let me, but make sure she can tell my comfurts is ok. he was so nice too and Mommy told him all about Catster and so she is gonna keep updating my diary with how I am doing and send it ta him too so he can keep up on my pawrogress. Oh, and he is gonna talks to my vet doc doc too about evfurrything and ta change my medicines 'cause even though I is getting confidents again, he thinks I should be taking something else.
So awlll in awlll I think it was good-he gave Mommy some toys too fur Harrison ta chase 'cause he loves ta plays and he is a typical boy who is naughty, MOL! and has lots a energy ta get out. He most definitely said that he has so much hopes and that it's not as awfuls as it seems, as long as we go with tha flow and take time with steps. And no more kibbles!!! I love my yum yums so I'm not sure how I feel about that rule, but we will see! I do love my wet stuffs a lot. We gotta move tha litter box too when we get furthur along, and add some shelves up ta helps with the escape routes.
He said I am such a beautiful girl though and loves my behaviors and how I walk around and stuffs-I just can't hide anymore, or rather, has hiding spots that kinda blocks my perceptions of where Harrison is. And those baby gates aren't gonna come out fur awhile 'cause we gots ta be separate fur sure fur now.
It's awwwwl so crazy! But Mommy is gonna follow tha rules and hopefully evfurrything will be so much better fur us! And I know that Harrison was so happy ta has access to tha living room today. He drank from my fountain and went on tha cat trees and played with Mommy. I thinks he was more excited ta be in another room 'cause he wasn't as interested in tha toys as he usually is, but with the plan, he should look forward to tha play time and will get his yum yums aftur he gets awwwl worn out from playing!
If I can remember anything else I will let ya know! Right now I cannot remember much, there was so much infurmations! It's funny though 'cause Mommy was saying that she has read so many books and this dooood thought that was pawsome! But it is so much more helpfuls ta has a real purrrrson ta talk to and walk through the steps with, and help fill in tha holes that the books don't fully fill, or at least explain things in a better way even if it's written down!

I am nervfusss! Tomorrow is the day the dooood comes ta my house ta check me out and Harrison out....I just don't know what ta thinks of that. Lately things have been good fur me, and I will accept the fact that sometimes I has ta eat in slight view of him if Mommy cracks the door to tha bedroom while we are eating, but I still do NOT wanna go in there at awls! Mommy put him in the bathroom again a few times and tried ta get me ta chase a string into that room, but I stopped my paws in their tracks! What's up with her? doesn't she know I don't wanna go in there no mores? She also took the blankie that he has been sleepin on and put it next ta me on the couchie, and I sniffed it a little and stuffs, but didn't get upsets and that seemed ta makes her happy so I guess I did good.
Fur some reason though-I will not tell Mommy, I decided that I don't wanna sit on my cat tree anymores and I pawrefer the couch. so I lay there and hang out and sleeps there now and Mommy sleeps with me too. It;s gonna sound crazies, but Mommy takes turns sleeping with us evfurry night, since she is a light sleeper anyways. She falls asleep in one place, and when she wakes up in tha middle of tha night, she moves and sleeps with the other one of us MOL! I guess it's not too funny, but I likes it.
Thank you to Snoopy fur the Jack-o-lantern, Macy fur tha pumpkin and Mercy and the furmily fur the cat on Howl-o-ween! I'm happy ta says the only furrightening part of it was being dressed up as Hello Kitty MOL!

Mommy just said that we is gonna has a visitor sometime soon-I wonder if he is from Heaven like Indy is now, 'cause 'pparently he has gots like, a Galaxy or somethings. I guess he is s'posed ta halps Harrison and I ta gets along, and a'course I guess I should want that. I do, I just don't wants ta be scurrrrred in the pawrocess.
So, I will keep posting about this fella and hopefully things will be good-our furrriend Monster's mommy said that the Galaxy dude is pawsome and like, would totally access what's happening and be able ta helps 'cause he is so intuitive...so maybe he could be a breathe of fresh air in this sishhhuashion(our words, not Monster's mommy)
I did sleeps on tha couchie last night-it was way warmer than the cat tree-I didn't wants Mommy ta sleeps with me though-so when she tried I got up. I needs my purrrsonal space sometimes too!

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.
