Happy July 4th weekend everyone! I hope everyone is staying cool. It's already starting to get pretty warm here, and it's only 9 a.m. It's gonna be a long, hot day.
Have you all heard about my best pal Tigger's new etsy shop, The Cat Fun Attic? If you're in the market for new cat toys, you have got to check it out!
Tigger's dad even makes custom figurines! They are so adorable!!!
Be sure to check it out!!
Also, be sure to drop by the Purr it Forward group and make some new friends. Mom's gonna try catching up today, depending on if the apartment stays cool enough to have the computer on. She's been such a slacker the past few weeks.
Have a safe and wonderful holiday!

I'm purring for my friends who are in the middle of a heat wave right now. Stay cool kitties! It's been in the low 90s here, and that's miserable, so I can't even begin to imagine what it must be like in other places. I hope everyone is safe and sound!

A New Game- Lovebug Tag! To play, copy the 6 questions below and paste/answer them in your diary! Then tag some friends to play, too!
1. Meow! Are you a noisy kitty or a quiet kitty?
I'm noisy! Lately, I've taken to screaming in the morning. Mom's not sure why, but I just want her to get up and give me breakfast!
2. Litterbox! Cover your business or let some other kitty cover?
I usually cover, but sometimes there are more exciting things going on, and I don't have time to cover. Or sometimes mom has company, and then I leave it for all to enjoy.
3. Happy! Favorite Daily Routine?
Snuggling with mom in the morning and getting lots of head and chin skritches.
4. Hiss! Least Favorite Routine?
Having my nails clipped. I once slapped mom for trying.
5. Ding-Dong! What do you think about visitors to your house?
I used to really like them and check out whoever walked through the door, but something's changed recently and now I hide. Mom isn't sure what happened, but she thinks maybe our landlord came in unannounced and scared me.
6. Friends! Do you like other animals?
I'm not sure. I've only met a few other animals, and I'm never around them long enough to decide how I feel.
Here are some friends that I am tagging! Please, no one feel left out- if you are reading this and you want to play, consider yourself tagged! Be sure to let your friends know they've been tagged by sending them a message or rosette! Angels can play, too! Tell us about your life at the bridge or your life at home before the bridge!
I tag all my friends who want to play! This is fun!

My friends are back!! Yay!! It's so good to see everyone again! I missed everyone so much while Catster had fleas.
I have a bunch to tell you guys, but it'll have to wait. My mom is dogsitting for the next few days, so she won't be spending much time at home and won't have internet access. And I need to be mad at her for leaving me.
So if you don't see much of me for a little bit, don't worry. I'll be back soon!

My mom is home! She said she had a pretty rough few days, so she's happy to be home now.
Did you guys see my figures from Tigger's Cat Fun Attic?!?! I hope my pictures uploaded - I have a couple more that didn't, so I'll have to try again after the fleas go away.
They are so cute!! Don't you love me dressed up as a Packer?! Mom is sending that one to my grandpa for his birthday, but we're a little bummed to part with it because it's so awesome.
Hopefully I'll have some more time to spend with my Catster friends now!

Hopefully my friends don't mind me writing about this subject, but I know how much you guys love to hear about flojectiles and, lets be honest, I need to up my chances of being a DDP!
So the last few days, really, ever since my mom got home from sitting on dogs, she's noticed I haven't been quite myself. I wasn't eating all my food, but she just switched food, so she thought maybe it just kept me fuller. Then I was sleeping quite a bit more, even letting her sleep in late, which is very unusual. And I just wasn't playing at much. She wasn't sure if something was going on.
Then last night, I horked up my first-ever hairball!! Yup. As far as mom can tell, I have never had a hairball before. Now I'm back to playing and keeping mom up in the morning! I made her get up and type this for me when she should still be sleeping! MOL!

Tink tagged me awhile ago for the feisty game,and I finally got my mom to sit down and fill it out for me!

3. If you make demands by doing any of the following, subtract 1 point:
Rubbing and purring on your human -1
4. If you let your humans rub your belly, subtract 2 points. -1 I'm gonna subtract one, because I won't let mom rub my belly really, but she can scratch up a little on my chest and neck.

Total Score (Place your score/name in your Diary Title):
0-5 LAIDBACK LOVEBUG: You are a lovebug. You are sweet (and probably floofy) and you go with the flow. Nothing *really* bothers you and you like everybody. You don’t even mind having a feisty sibling! You are a laidback lovebug!
6-15 COOL CAT: You are one cool cat. Smooth with a touch of mischief. You’ve got a bit of feisty in you and a bit of lovebug. Balance is good; you know how to have a good time by chasing and pouncing AND you know how to have a good time by being a mellow kitty and just hanging out. You are a cool cat!
16+ CRAZY FEISTY: You are a nut. A cheeky little monkey! Crazy, feisty, the talk of the town! Chasing kitty sisters, demanding your human feed you NOW, eating your mom’s favorite pair of shoes, turning on the oven with your freakishly strong teeth just because you can! The world is your playground and you’ll try anything once (or twice). If your human can handle the shenanigans of a CRAZY FEISTY kitty cat, all is good! If your human cannot handle the shenanigans, wait until she leaves for work to get crazy and then blame it on your sistercat when your human comes home! You are crazy feisty (and a whole lot of mischievous fun!)!

Purring for you all!

Hi friends -
I was wondering if you could spare a couple of purrs for me. I have to go to the vet tomorrow. :( Mom says I'm not eating enough or being playful enough for her liking. *Humph* First she puts me on a diet and then she says I'm not eating enough. Humans are never happy. I'll let you know how things go tomorrow.
From mom -
I've noticed over the past week that Monida has been eating less and less. In a 24-hour span yesterday, she ate maybe 1/6 of the food she's supposed to eat. This morning I couldn't even get her to eat wet food, and she LOVES wet food. She hasn't been playing much either and has been sleeping a lot more. I wouldn't call her lethargic, but almost like she's depressed. Anyway, I'm taking her to the vet tomorrow. Hopefully everything is ok, and it's just the heat that's bothering her, though I'm skeptical that's it. I'll let you know how it all goes. I'm already bracing myself for the "She's fat" lecture. *sigh*

OMC - those purrs sure are powerful stuff! Thank you everyone for all your love and purrs! Mom got home last night, and I was playing and playing and playing, and when she went to go to bed, I ate a whole bunch. Then this morning I was eating and playing and being a pest! :)
Mom was torn, but decided to take me to the vet anyway just in case. She was worried if she canceled the appointment, I might start acting sick again, and she'd rather nip this in the bud. So I made her pay. Literally! MOL! Do you guys know how much a blood test costs?!? Mom said she definitely took the wrong career path.
Anyway, even though I'm feeling much better today, the vet thought I should have a blood test done since I've been acting weird for about two weeks. We should have the results later today. He also warned mom that's it's possible it's feline leukemia or even FIP, but he said he really doesn't think that's it, and neither do I.
So here's hoping I pass my blood test!
Thanks everyone for everything!
