Arrival Story:
There was this mom-lady that gave us food everyday. She talked to us, and tried to pet a few of us. For some reason, I felt so drawn to her, so I would let her really pet me & it felt good! I started to get goopy eyes & nosie. Uh oh - are you sick little man? Then she noticed that I seemed really thin & would run to the food dish, but then stare at it hanging my head - not eating. I kept shaking my head. I could not smell or breathe so I could not eat. She could feel my spine & hip bones. Every day she would spoon feed me & try to get me to eat, but I had a hard time, and would have these shaking fits where I couldn't catch my breath. The day she tried to feed me baby food with an eye dropper, I was choking. She set me down & then I kept sneezing. Well when she went to wipe my nosie, there was this green thing sticking out. She gently pulled, and out came a long piece of grass from my nosie & sinus! Boy that felt better. I was able to eat a little more, but still not much. Each day I was getting worse, and then she told the dad- man "if I don't do something, he is gonna die" so he gave the ok, and I was asked onto the screenporch - I went to the vet in the morning & she found I had pneumonia & only weighed 2.5 lbs for a 3 month old. Lots of meds, lots of tasty foods, a warm lap and lots of love from mom & I am almost all better!

I was born in the woodpile of the backyard. Not a bad life - we got fed everyday, and played in the yard. But life is so much better now. I am never hungry for more than a minute. I feel good. I feel loved. I can become the kitty I was meant to be. Felix was born with no hip sockets, and luxating patellas on both knees. He has had surgery to fix one, but may still need the other done, and possibly the femur heads cut off on his hips. He is such a sweet boy through it all. update: I am growing like a weed & getting more confident.

thank you for the nice birthday gifties & wishes.
Momma chose May 5 for my birthday to celebrate my survival. It is a party day, so it seems to fit for me! She knows I was born in early May, as it was in the woodpile in our yard, but she wasn't sure of the exact day. I had a nice day too! I got some crab & shrimp dinner with big chunks of shrimpies in it. I got brushied and it was nice enough for the window to be open so I could sniff the spring air. I played with this furry mousie on a stick. I am a happy, lucky kitty. The Onsior is working wonders. I am still skittish, but not quite as bad, and I play more too, and sort of run around. I still have a limping gait, but Dr Mimi said I will always walk like that - She said that I won't win a gold medal in the race, but I still can cross the finish line! purrs and happy spring to all.

A special purr to Smiley's family. He was a special friend and I will miss him. He always remembered me. I raise a paw in salute to you my friend Smiley Cassanova!


Onsior ROCKS

I have been on my medicine for almost 2 weeks. I took it 3 days in a row, and now every other day. Momma thinks it is helping me! I am moving more and I seem to be moving more fluidly & quicker. I was even trit-trotting down the hallway the other day! I don;t like the chicken gabapentin, but Momma talked to the pharmacist & she suggested a tiny bit of anchovy oil or tuna oil to mask the medicine taste. So we will try that. Probably won't be back until next week, cause of the wedding. Anyone else having some log in troubles?

So Momma got brave & moved the bed to check for carnage. Nothing-zip-nada-no peepee. All she could find was a few drips in the little tunnel that I sleep in by the bed. That got cleaned. She re-arranged some stuff in her closet, and got a smaller hooded litter box that fits in the corner. Nice & quiet just for me! The closet goes through the door into the living room, so if both doors are left open a bit, I can access from either room. Since then, there has been no peepee smells. SO Momma thinks I must have been sleeping so sound that I started to tinkle a bit & then must have woke up & couldnt make it to the litter box downstairs, and went on the rug in the office/bedroom instead. She said "Felix it is not your fault - we will fix this!" Momma ordered one of those pee lights to check the whole house too, She is probably going to get rid of the rug in her office, I did a number on it. Tomoorow is the first meeting for the study, so we will let everyone know what occurs. They had a problem at the pharmacy where my Onsior is coming from, so I won't get it until tomorrow. It took them a week & a half to get it to me. My chewy gabapentin comes tomorrow. So keep your paws & whiskers crossed my pals that these help! Still haven't heard from the surgeon, but I have to go back to the internist after I am on the Onsoir for 2 weeks, so maybe we will hear then. I was playing some today too - Momma said I seem much more alert & perky since my poop issues (see diary lady?) are regulating.mol. Talk more in a few days.
