Yepppers, it is my big birthday today! I am 6 years old! Holy Cow Momma says, when did that happen? And that is really great for a kitty diagnosed with HCM at 1 year old. I will be going this month for my annual echo & checkup with my cardiologist. But we expect a good report, cause I am doing just great. I can steal Smitty's food before he even knows it, and I randomly smackety paw at will. My pacing & attempts to spray have even improved. Maybe I just had winter blues & cabin fever too. I like when the window can be opened. I think the plastic covering will be coming off the screened porch this weekend, which is my favorite thing. I like to sit on the ledge (the bottom half is a wall, the top half is screens) and survey MY yard. I will be having a dinner of shredded chicken & crab food, and a couple treats. I have been enjoying laying on Momma's purple robe all morning, so it is shaping up to be a good day.
Thank you to my sweet Kaci for the giftie & a Happy Birthday to her too!

Well, our boy is now married. Momma says that it was beautiful and she only cried a little bit - especially at the mom/son dance, when he picked Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong and they spoke of many sweet things to each other. But there was much dancing, wonderful food and everyone looked beautiful. Momma & The Dad got up at 430am yesterday to take the newlyweds to O'Hare airport - bound for Maui. And lo and behold, our boy sent Momma a text when they got there with some pictures right away. So at some point this week, Momma would like to put a picture or two on my page to show the wedding. Now she has lots of work, and to take care of their black kitty, Jet. And Momma got good reports today from the doctor, so it is shaping up to be a good week.

ANd last but not least, a happy birthday to my little bro Smitty. Rock on dude, and you WILL give me a bite of your birthday tuna.....

We are here, enjoying the couple warm days, then it gets colder again. Spring is trying very hard to peek through. We will be here and there a bit over the next couple weeks, Our human boy is getting married in 2 weeks, and Momma is flitting around even more than usual. Mommma is excited and of course a little sad - how did he grow up so fast? Plus while the newlyweds are honeymooning she will be keeping an eye on his & almost new wife's little black kitty Jet. So yes, Momma has a grand-kitty.
Things are quiet - Momma started the study on behavior. We can't talk about it too much until it is over, but if anyone is still interested in participating, they may have another Chicago meeting. Let Momma know if you are. It is for multiple cat homes that are having some aggression issues.

ok well - happy spring to all!


mysterious & semi-Felix info

Wow so today it seems we can write in our diary. They must have been working on something secret in the laboratory on Saturday, because we couldn't go to our account or post anything. So whew! I apparently have not been such a good boy, and sprayed on a basket of clean clothes this morning. Mom was NOT amused. I will be stuck wearing my Calming Collar all day today. Don't get me wrong, it has a mach pirate print on it, but I am not so thrilled. Momma thinks it is spring fever. Luckily The Dad doesn't know, and she can rewash before he finds out. He would really not be thrilled. She is also going to try the Bach calming remedy to see if that helps me.

The vet called this morning for Felix - Momma will put the info on his diary. Let's just say it is some overwhelming stuff, and we can use some thoughts.


It's March 4th - and we are still HERE!

What a relief! I guess there was a teeny part of us that worried it was all a bad joke and that something would happen....but WAHOO! Perfect for celebrating FAT TUESDAY! & for us, Paczki Day! Nuttin like a huge fruit filled fried ball of dough to celebrate! The bakery was packed as usual, but somehow, even waiting there, everyone is in such a good mood, and chatting, it wasn't so bad. Momma has the zydeco music playing, and her plastic beads on & we are celebrating this as a day of happiness on so many levels. So to everyone, HAPPY HAPPY DAY!!! mmmmmmm donuts.....(and did you know, that they magically remove ALL of the calories just for today?) yeah right..... yay Catster!


a good day

Well it seems like not long ago, I thought we would be deleting our pages today. Momma is so glad she waited. Originally she was gonna delete Felix after his week, and so on. For some reason, she felt that she should not. Good call Momma! So today we can just complain about the 4 inches of snow HISS and the cold & below zero windchills again DOUBLE HISS!!! I did decide to attack the throw rug the other day. Lazy throw rug...just laying there - I schooled that darn rug but good! The Dad was cracking up and told me I was silly. No...The Dad - I saved you from the evil lurking rug I did...I got to have my favorite chicken & liver food yesterday....mmmmmmm. Mom spotted Fritz the other day - he came in the yard to meow at her & eat. He was limping and his paw was scabbed up. But he has not come back. She said she will maybe try & trap him and get him to the vet the TNR group uses. Hopefully he shows up again. Momma thought he was gone... still no Bunny though. Oh I went out on my leash Friday nite, and something must have been spooky, because I was walking around all crouched down slinky like. Mom said it was funny. We still have not heard from the vet about Felix. Momma is getting a mite perturbed about it, it has been 2 weeks. The vet did not fill out the insurance form until the special vet said what he thought, so it has delayed turning it in, and it takes a month to get reimbursed. So if we do not hear anything tomorrow, Momma will call & ask what the heck... I mean seriously Felix could have had surgery & be recovering already....o well. I am so very happy that we will still be here tomorrow!! I am so happy for my friends! We do have pics to put up, but Momma is waiting to see what is up here. Well a happy goodnite my pals!


A week for the Tigman

Well this would have been my week to say goodbye - I am really glad that things seemed to work out. We were so sad, and now we are cautiously optimistic, although we have not heard anything since the initial "we are saved!" We continue to visit Macy's site, and will be trying to visit some other sites as well. Momma says once this wedding is over, she can relax a bit more. So here we go AGAIN with this hissing cold. Tired-done-over it. Gonna have below zero temps again! I gotta give mom props, she bundles up & takes me out on my leash, but there is nothing to sniff, really. I strolled around the patio & driveway, looking for, I don't know what, but something to chase or pee on. Everything is covered in snow, and one day when I tried to dig in the snow & play, it was so cold that my paws started to hurt very much, I couldn't take a step, and crouched down & started to cry. Momma saved me! She snatched me up & brought me inside & held me close & held my toes. And I got a treat too. Boy, I don't know how those outside kitties can deal with it. Makes me feel sorry for them, even though they keep trying to take over MY YARD. The problem is then I get agitated, because I wanna go out, so I pace at night sometimes, and then I want to spray. Momma uses all the calming stuff, and tries to distract me. I seem to do ok when I am able to take my walkie each day. I have a bush that I mark, and I am happy & then I don't do it in the house. Momma sometimes wonders if when I got neutered, they missed some boy parts - she says when I go to the vet, she is gonna ask if they can tell. Or maybe I am just a dominant boy-cat. I dunno. I am not mean or anything. Speaking of the vet, still no word from the specialist on Felix - so nothing to report there. Momma says that she liked giving us each a week for diaries, and she will continue it that way, so that we all can have a chance to speak our minds. Oh something I recently started doing that Momma loves - I will beg to climb on her shoulders. I crawl up there and plop down across her whole shoulders, and lay my head on her shoulder. Sometimes I purr, or fall asleep - or drool...Momma will hold my tail to help me stay steady and walk around with me. She calls it "wearing her Tiggie stole" No idea why I started this, but she always stops what she is doing when I ask her so I can come aboard. Spring fever is setting in - I think that after the wedding, she will be going through stuff & cleaning & painting and stuff. There are alot of those little things that just don't get finished around here that she is determined to FINISH!
My human sister will be gone for a few months - she will be a Naturalist counselor at a State Park for University of Inidana, then through the school she is in, she will be in Borneo for a while, working at the orangutan reserve. How exciting is that? She has traveled so many places - Spain, London,Galapagos, New Zealand, Fiji, Costa Rica, Ecuador, The Amazon- & gone to school in Australia. Not to mention the states she has visited- a pretty seasoned traveler!
So my friends, things are ok, and sometimes that is exactly what ya want. I probably won't be back here until Wednesday or Thursday - Momma has some work projects that will take time to do, so NO PLAYING. See you in a day or so pals!

Well - what a Valentine gift did we all get? It does a whisker good to know that even though we are tiny, that our purrs were heard. Things may be a bit different, but that is ok, we will still have our core. Which is what Catster was/is all about OUR CORE. But let us not forget the folks that worked very hard to try & make a new place for us to go. We do not want to abandon them either, their work was not for nothing. Now we need to remember not to take things for granted - we kind of did. Not that y'all must be here everyday, but if everyone tries a bit, it will all be good. The funny thing is that originally Momma was going to delete us kits one at a time after our spotlite week, but something inside said wait, just in case. I am so glad for her to be right/wrong? whatever YAHOO CATSTER!!! and thank you Say Media for FINALLY responding to some very determined kits & pups!!! (yahoo for you pupkins too!) I know we can sleep a tiny bit better tonite.....MEOWSKA!!!

Well, next week will be Felix's turn to write. He hasn't had much opportunities to do so, as I am pretty much the loudmouth around here - but Mom wanted us each to have one last chance on Catster. Ulp, I almost couldn't even type that - the inevitable seems to be looming closer. I wish we would have had more time to visit our groups - there were just so many & with 4 of us, that part was hard to keep up on. I know that with many of you, our paths will not cross again, and my family wishes you all the best of happiness. Some of you, we will see in other locations, and a few more we will stay in close touch with. But before it gets too close to deleting our pages, and Momma gets more emotional, we really wanted to say thank you. Thank you for being our friends, and for the support, comments and care that you have shown us these past years. Momma learned so much from this site, and from many of you. It is sad that that wisdom will be silenced, and I am sad for the kitties that will not get the help they need, because we will not be here to help them. Please, if you have not given me your email, and wish to, send me a pawmail or email so I can have yours too. Momma set up that email just for Catster pals & for kitty sites. I almost forgot, I haven't sent any thankees for all the gifties, so thankee! nor have we sent any. Next week, Felix will be doling some out, our goal is to have zero balance. Don't forget to say hey to Felix now - ok?
