Happy Earth Day everyone. If each one of us does one little thing each day, it can make a difference. Unplug an item, recycle that magazine, use a nice refillable water bottle, these are all things that are easy to do, and will help our planet. We use cardboard scratchers that can be recycled. Heck you can make one with an extra box.
It is awful to think about all of the garbage that will be going to the landfills from this flood. But when you must toss out everything, and there is mold all over - it is hard to recycle those things.

Take a moment, look up at the sky - sniff the air & listen to a birdie - it is a beautiful place we live in.

Peace, love & recycle my friends. Happy Earth Day!

The wonderful thing about Tiggers is Tiggers are wonderful things! Their tops are made out of rubber, their bottoms are made out of springs! THey're bouncy trouncy, bouncy, trouncy fun fun fun fun fun! The most wonderful thing about Tiggers is...getting to see my friends! We have missed you! The bad rain messed up my basement, but I have been the brave explorer & wandering around while Mom is changing out towels to hold back the seeping. Oh and there are dry areas where she has stuff stacked, so I have places to climb & explore. I go nest month for my heart checkup. can you believe I will be 5 years old? Mom still remembers the day I decided to come live here like yesterday. It has been a sad week between the bombings, and Texas & the rain here in Chicago-land. We are lucky - even though Mom & The Dad were up all night for 2 days with the shopvacs & throwing blankets down to keep the water contained - there are those with feet of water in their basements. It is all perspective. Can't wait to start catching up on everyone too. Maizy is good, Felix is pretty good, and poor Smitty has to have surgery - but hopefully it should be ok. Well, off to start looking at diaries & the forums to see whats what! BOUNCY TROUNCY Tigman!


It's Me!!!

wow thanks all for the candies & Valentine's pretties. Mom did not get on Valentine's Day - her & The Dad went to the RV show in Rosemont to look at campers & stuff. She says it was fun & some of them were even nicer than our kitchen (and more expensive too!) there was one for more than 3 hundred thousand dollars!! they got some ideas though, cuz the ol popup is on it's last legs (it's a 1973!) anyways - Mom wants to look at all our gifites & see what everyone has been up to, so in the next day or so we will be back with updates & a couple o pics. purrs


HEEEYYY and whew!!

We have been lurking around, not a whole bunch & just have not posted diary entries. Mom has been having some issues with her eyeballs mol. It is called computer vision syndrome, and can cause your eyes to be burny & blurry & stuff. There was a light on the desk that while it helps with paperwork, was causing eye strain from the reflection & the screen. So we were not on as much & avoiding any bright white backgrounds. She is working on the monitor height & lighting to improve this.
So consequently, none of us were able to seek out Valentines like we did last year. :( I feel bad for Felix, as this is his first Valentine's Day, but next year will be better we hope.
In a good note, we caught Inky (she is Felix's momcat) and got her in for TNR spay today. Luckily, as they said she was in heat (she already had 2 litters since May) When we got most of the colony in the fall & rescued Felix, she had disappeared, and Mom thought something bad happened. Turns out that she had another litter. She brought them into the backyard in January. Sadly we found one of her kittens dead, and The Dad buried her. The other one, the LAST one to get fixed is still so scaredy, not sure how we will catch it. Heck Inky walked right into the trap while Mom held it open & tossed chicken in there! So once little Bunny is caught, that will make a bakers's dozen that have been spayed/neutered, with 4 of them getting adopted (1 being our sweet Felix). Mom is pretty proud of this!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY TO ALL OUR FRIENDS! you are all our "sweethearts"

ps Maizy sends Zekie much love! xoxo


can it be true?

dare I say it...Mom did not feel me up for a while, so that she would know for sure, but it seems that the lump on my leg iiissss outttaa theeeere!
She says she will check every few days, but whew. Things are quiet, although I am still rather keyed up. Mom has been taking me out on my leash every night to stroll the yard, but it is cold, so I make 1 stroll around & back inside. If any of the feral colony is out there, I chase after them, so maybe that is why I am rather revved up. Mom has been a little bit sad the past couple days, so I think I will go & snuggly by her & give her a dose of Tigger-luvs (it's the best medicine around).
purrs my friends


New Year

Thanks to all my friends for the well wishes & the congrats. We did no t even know about it, as Mom was not on the computer much while human sister was here from Seattle. Mom wanted to spend every second possible with her! Mom checked my leg last night, and it seems like the lump is much smaller. Hopefully it is not just wishful thinking. It has to be GONE by the end of the month. Mom is doing all the end of the year junk for work, but next week should be a bit better to catch up with everything here!
Has anyone taken Duralactin or Welactin or Dasuquin? Looking at that stuff for my arthritis - mom doesn't want to do shots yet if possible. And NO MORE other shots for me. Mom says NOPE
I have been a bit geared up the past few days, and even with the Feliway I have sprayed a couple times. Mom doesn't know why - Felix is long neutered, and the outside kitties are all spayed or neutered. How would we know if there was some "boy tissue" left in there? The spray does not smell really strong - it gets cleaned up asap & sprayed with Nature's Miracle - Mom loves that stuff. She is going to finally order a calm collar through IBD Kitties - maybe that will help. But other than that - it has been nice. Mom will be moving her office upstairs into the human brother's room - since he moved out on his own. It will be a pain, but she says she will be glad to get out of "the dungeon" where her office has been for 15 years. So that means a move for our baskets too. But I can sit in the window so that will be good! Then Nana is gonna set up her painting art station where Momma's desk was, so she will have a little studio she can enjoy. Win Win Win situation!
Here's to a happy, healthy, peaceful New Year with some found fortune for all. We surely all deserve some happiness after the sadness in 2012. Purrs & Peace my pals!
& the rest of the Kitty Quartet : Maizy, Smitty & Felix


bumpy lumpy

The vet was very impressed with mom to have found the lumpy. She said that it is a reaction to my shot. My tissues got inflamed, and if it is gonna do that, it usually happens within 3 weeks of the shot. The rabies vaccine she uses is not known to cause sarcomas, but she said that if it is still there in a month, she will take it out - being safe is better than sorry. She has already decided that I will not get any more vaccines. none. ever.

The other issue I have been battling a bit, is that when she checks my spine, I have an area that is very tender. So much so that I do cry & wince a bit. She mentioned to mom before that I prob have arthritis. Some days I do not get the Cosequin 2x, so mom is making sure to be strict with that first - otherwise the vet said she could try this shot - not a steroid, but starts with an a...Adequin I think? I would get 1 shot every 5 days until I have 5, then once a month. I am not showing any signs of slowing down or that I even have any issues, unless you press those areas, so mom thinks maybe we will see how I am doing in a month or so.
Has anyone had experience with these Adequin shots for arthritis though?

ps we had an excellent Christmas. Both human children came "home" and it was nice to see them. I made sure to get fur on them both to take back. Momma was very happy. We got of course our cat tree, and a Yeoww fish toy. Felix got a little chirping bird toy, and Nana got us a bag of treats.

I had not checked for a little while, so I am not sure when this happened but when I went to go see Bumpurr's page to send a hello- they are not there anymore. Any pics in the forums do not link to his page or Cowboy, Cruiser or Smokey.
Bumpurr helped me learn so much about my HCM, and kept mom from worrying too much. So marks another loss. I know there were some misunderstandings with a few kits, but it is sad to see someone else is gone.

Can you all spare 1/2 a purr for me? Mom was petting me & found a small lump on my right rear leg- the meaty part. I had my rabies shot on 11/30 on that leg - the only shot I got. It is smaller than a kidney bean, and softish, so mom hopes it is nothing and is trying very hard not to freak out unnecessarily. I have an appt for Wed to make sure.
