My sweet little boobalicious, I cannot believe that it has already been a week since you've been gone. I miss you more than words can even comprehend and my heart aches so much. My heart is so heavy because of how much I LOVE AND MISS YOU and it's so full of love at the same time from all of the support I never even knew or expected to have. I am shocked and blown away with the outpouring of love and support from all the people and furrriends who loved you soo much and are missing you too.
Kitty Pryde is heartbroken too. I bet you knew that though-that even when you would chase her and try to play tag, that even when she ran she still loved you. She's been looking for you and has been asking me where you are and why you had to go away. All I can do is love her and comfort her like she is comforting me.
I've been having a fight with myself between my head and my heart. My heart loved you so much and is making me feel that somehow I failed you because you've always been a little more fragile and delicate than Kitty, and how couldn't I have known better and taken you to the doctor sooner, or made stronger choices when taking you to the vet doc doc, but my head keeps telling me that I need to forgive myself because I did the best I could and took care of you better than anyone else would have. I know you knew how much I loved you though and maybe that's why you decided it was time to go while I was in the next room, because you knew how much harder it would've been. You knew me better than I knew myself because even when I fought my feelings when I was sick or sad, you always were right there to comfort me and love me unconditionally, and put your paw on my cheek to let me know everything would be ok.
I understand now that I didn't love you more than Kitty Pryde, you just needed more love because you knew you wouldn't be with us forever.
I could write so much more, but right now I need to stop because it still hurts so much. No one will ever replace you. I love you and miss you. And I am so thankful for all the love everyone has for us. Thank you for giving me and everyone else that gift.
Love forever and ever,

I can't believe I'm an Angel! This is so kewl! I have met so many furriends here when I got to tha bridge, and made new furriends too! I miss my mommy though and even my sisfur. It's so weird, all I remember is being with my mommy and then the nice vet doc and then I heard lots of saddness and felt lots of love in the air and then I wasn't hurting anymore.
My mommy is so grateful for all your messages and love that you have all sent. I know she wants to say thank you to everyone, and she will try as soon as she can. I want to thank you too because I know I'm not as popular as some kits on here, and yet I feel so loved.
Its such a hard thing. I never thought I wouldn't grow old. I just started ta get my man whiskers too under my chin. But I'm not feeling bad and that's awwwl that matters. I will try ta write more soon. I'm still trying ta get used to this lovely place. I gotta get wings too! Maybe someone can halps me when you has extra time :)
Love always and Bonks,

This morning Indiana went to the Bridge. I still can't believe it or understand it, but he started having trouble breathing while I was waiting for him at the vet, then I heart him scream out and then they were doing CPR. He was too far gone though. I'm still processing this...I am getting a necropsy though because I have to know what happened.
Thank you for all the purrrrrs. We love you so much
Love Kitty Pryde and Kristin

This is Indy's mom taking over this morning. I'm at the animal hospital right now to pick Indy up to then take him to another specialty vet where he will be seeing an Internist and get an ultrasound. Everything is kind of a blur right now, but he started acting unlike himself this weekend. I knew something was def wrong by Monday because he hadn't eaten really since Sunday afternoon and he wouldn't go potty and he was hiding from me.
He did seem to be a little better Monday because he was peeing and drinking a little, so I didn't take him to the er yet because I was following advice from the holistic doc I had recently been seeing. Tues he was not better so I took him in. Basically, from what I remember now, his levels on all his bloodwork are way off. His wbc count is higher than they could imagine, and they did the test more than once to make sure. His liver is enlarged(why he's getting an ultrasound) but basically they think he may have leukemia or even worse, maybe FIP.
I know it doesn't help to worry but I just can't stop crying. I thought I was taking good care of him, how could I not know he was so sick??? He has been ok for the most part, and with this holistic vet he seemed to be great. I am sicking with scientific medicine for now-I know at least there is science behind it. Please purrray for indy. Kitty has been mewing around the house since last night, she knows something is not right. I'm not sure what till happen once I go to the new play, but will keep you posted on my boobalicious.

I can't believe I can even paw this 'cause I feel so yucky. I need some purrrs from my furrriends. Things have been going so good at home with my poopies and my outburts onta Kitty Pryde, and I have been eating and sleeping and playing and watching all the stuffs outside happening, but then this weekend I started ta feel a little ick ick. I was still eating though, so Mommy thought maybe I was just tired or something, and I even ate a little on Sunday too, but now I haven't really eaten at all. Not even a treat. I licked it, but didn't even swallows.
Mommy is worried. I know I need ta go to the vet doc doc and that is the plan tonight. Mommy furst called the holistic lady ta ask what she should do since I was on those herbs, and she told Mommy ta stop the herbs and ta get me something called Nox Vomica at the whole foods store and that would make me back ta normals...Mommy wasn't sure, but she decided since evfurrything was working so good already that she would listen ta that lady furrrst.
Well, I took that stuff in some water, and was suprised akshully that it wasn't yucki stuff in tha syringe squirted in my mouth, and I even had some water from my fountain, but now I don't want anything today. I did try ta poopies, and I did try ta tinkles-and I did tha tinkles, but no poopies. So now I am stuck in tha bedroom all day so Mommy can keep track of my food and potty stuff and she is taking me to tha special vet hospital tonight...Is that as scary as the vet doc doc? I am nervfous...
I wish I felt better and could play. Kitty Pryde has been playing so much, but I just wanna watch, even though I did chase a toy yesterday fur a minute.

SOrry I has been Missing in Actions lately, but I has been furry busy with tha important job of taking care of my meowmy. She has been sick in tha bed fur like, days now it seems-like since last week akshully, right aftur she got home from grandmaw's house! So she came home and got sick on me! No fun! But she did bring me a toy back MOL!
But back ta my important job! I has been laying with her and keeping my paws on her cheek ta makes sure she doesn't has a fever, and I has been extra well behaved ta Kitty Pryde...I know...crazy! But I knew Meomy wouldn't be ables ta chase me around with her being awlll sicks. Oh man, and tha noise that comes outta her nose...it's awfuls! I thought it was a monster at furrrst, but it was just her nose.
I had lots a fun when she was away too at grandmaw's but I was sure happy she came home. And my dude furrriend came ovfur to when Meowmy came home and since she has been so sick, he's been stayin ovfur ta helps make sure she is ok and ta give me cuddles when I need them (from helping out so much!)...I felt bad, but akshully one night when Meowmy was sick, but not as awfuls yet, my dude furrriend slept on tha couch so he didn't get sick germies and I slept with him instead of Meowmy. But she didn't mind 'cause Kitty Pryde and her gots ta has their girl time (and Kitty Pryde stretched awwwwwl out on tha bed! MOL!)
I still is taking (not very happily) my concatshion of slippery elm and ginger stuffs fur my tummy aches-we haven't gotten tha "remedy" that the natural doc doc ordered fur me yet, but I will keep you posted!
I also gotta send Thank Mews to Ozzy and Harriet fur Sharing tha loves and to tha whole kitty and angel kitty crew at Collete-Sidonie-Samantha, Marrakech and Samsara's house fur tha tulips!
Also, soooo sorry fur tha belated thank mews-I just hasn't been on Catster (blame sick meowmy!) to Skippy Skipster fur tha Mousie on Easter! Patrick fur tha Egg! and Sparky fur tha Flower ta chews on!
I love you furs, and am gonna update more often!

Duuuude, Meowmy went cawwwrazy and broughts me to ta vet doc Agains, like I said, and this lady was so weird! She kept tawkin ta me likes I was a hoooman too (ok I is one in cat furmation) and it was likes I was possessed ta listens or something. I also did another naughty and made mommy has like 3 booboos but at least now she can use tha Hello Kitty bandaids she just bought MOL!
So this chicky doc didn?t really gets ta touch me cause I had ta show her I was boss, but she asked lots a questions and she took stuff by me and I hissed and growled. It was kewl. But then she told mommy all this stuffs about me that made so mush senses ta her, she kept sayin, like about my poopies of deaffffths and pukies and aggresssshions at tha vet doc doc aftur shots and all this othfur stuff and her conclushion was that I is not aggressives on purpose (that musta been why that ear cream prozac stuffs didn't halps me much) but I is hurting cause my tummy is enflamed cause a'toxic stuffs that's making me mad. And sickly, so I takes it out on the household a,cause I can't talks it out.
Mommy got some stuff that smelled interesting that she let me sniffs out, but then she squirted it in my moufffs, yuk. Its aposed ta help with my bellie aches and I think it must be 'cause I has been a little calmer, and not as angry. This chicky doc also is gonna get some othfur stuffs fur me ta cleanse my toxic stuff, then we will see if I am nicer.
Is this crazy or what??? I gots liver qi stagnationsss or somethin and spleen qi defishhiencies with my stomach qi rebelling upwards...at least she lknows i 's a rebel tuff guy and at least its got somethin ta do with tha fishies, since I likes ta eat them.

Indy's mommy here...I took over the diary today because I just had to tell you what happened yesterday at this holistic/acupunturist new vet from my perspective, and not from Mr. Angry Cat's!
The vet visit went GREAT! This woman is a holistic doctor who does acupuncture and stuff for people and animals. Indiana actually attacked me this Sun night when I was walking by him to get Kitty Pryde after he had just chased her out of bed and he's been nutty all weekend-one thing he has been doing is literally being normal and calm, then doing this deperate mew and trying to attack me and hold on why he he biting me...almost like he is trying to nurse from me but it hurts-and I put his blankie between my skin and his mouth and he chews that for a bit to calm down...anyways...
I got to the vet and she let him just chill out in his carrier while she asked me questions (it was an hour long consult) and whenever she would go by him or talk to him he would hiss right back at her!
After giving her all his medical history, she wanted me to take him out and sit with him and he was good at first, just wanting to be pet but very vocal about his unhappiness, but then he went and attacked me again on my arm and I was actually bleeding a lot-she told him no and to go back in his carrier and he did, though he sulked in a kitty way while he did it!!! And whenever she told him to stop making noise and to behave he listened too, which was kind of funny. He does listen to me for the most part except when he is upset...
She thinks, and I completely agree because I thought this before, that he has had some kind of toxicity to the vaccinations he had when he was a kitten. When I got him at the shelter they said he was done for the year, but this one vet after that insisted he needed another booster, even though I had all the paperwork saying he was all set, but I gave in and after that was when his legs started getting weird (he used to not be able to jump well and was clumsy)...and he does have a "crooked" pelvis they said, but it never was xrayed.
Plus, when he was neutered, the vet and lady at his shelter said he had a really hard time waking up from the anestesia and was aggressive all day until I came and got him, so I never wanted to put him under for stuff again after that, even though vets (like the one who insisted he get more shots) told me he would need to be sedated to even just do routine blood work since he would get so aggressive...yet the regular vet I go to now has had no trouble with him with that stuff.
I thought he might have a chicken allergy because he was getting sick with food, and most food has chicken meal in it, even if it's not the main protein, and the only one he didn't really get sick on was Royal Canin prescription Rabbit meal food, but she thinks that his system is out of balance not from the food, but he may have environmental allergies.
She is going to have him detox with some herbal liquid she is preparing and then try to treat him with acupuncture, since last night he wouldn't let her touch him at all, but she also gave me this organic slippery elm and ginger powder to mix with water and give to him twice a day to help soothe his tummy, since he's been throwing up a lot again and has his awful poopy issues. But she really believes that the vaccines were too much and his system is out of whack and that he should not be vaccinated again because with the stomach and aggression issues, it's causing a neurological imbalance.
I know this all sounds so crazy, but it totally made sense to me while I was there and while I was putting the pieces together looking at all his medical records this morning. And actually, I've already given him a couple doses of the slippery elm and ginger mixture and he has been waaaay calmer and not provoking Kitty Pryde as much-he did last night, but not in the same way-he was just trying to sit with her but she is so used to him pouncing on her that her first reaction is to hiss and flee!
But...I think his stomach might be a little bit calmer right now since he is calmer and hungrier. I am hoping this is the step in the right direction! She also gave me some raw food samples to try, but they both were not interested in it at all this morning!
Please purrr that this is going to help! I can't give up on him. And they love each other, just he must be angry because he doesn't feel well! And thank you Alex's mommy!!! You actually said the same thing before when we were emailing before-that something is making him sick and act out again.
I will keep you posted on what happens, and of course Indy will have his opinions too MOL!
