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!

Bio:
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 my birthday wishes & gifties! Momma & The Dad left for vacation on my birthday. Our human sister came and stayed with Nana & us to keep an eye on things. I pretty much stayed in my tree, but boy when Momma came home, I wouldn't leave her alone & I have been getting lots of pets. I got some new treats for my birthday too. They are soft turkey ones. Mom has been pretty irritated at Tigger - she even posted in the health forum. Looking at maybe prozac. I sometimes have an accident, but only cause I hold it too long, and cannot get to my box fast enough. But I am getting better since I have a small potty box just for me upstairs. Boy it got nice and warm that we could look out the windows, and go out on the screen porch, but it is cold. Momma had to put the heat back on! Thanks again, and looking forward to the fixes here - they are coming soon!!! luvs Feefer-Kitty

All went just great with my teeth. I didn't have to have any taken out, and they are all shiny. I have to take antibiotics until Tuesday to make sure there is no infection. Today is sunshiny - even though it is like 9 degrees out. The ice is melting a bit where the sun is hitting. Although tomorrow is to be more snow & freezing rain. BUt spring is coming! I can feel it!!! Take care my pals. We'll be back in a few days!

 

halooo!

Hi to all my pals!
Well aside from it being freezing in Chicagoland. (30 would be a heatwave right now - seriously) things are quiet. The bad thing when it is really cold, my legs hurt and I limp pretty bad on the front one. Momma has all sorts of snuggly beds for me, and Nana will put her heating blanket on low while I lay on her bed. I went to the vet for my checkup, and my bloodwork is great - that means I can stay on the Onsior! That medicine helps me alot. Even the doc noticed that I am not so tense when she checks me. On the bad side I have to have my teeth cleaned. Mommma does wipe my toofies, but my mouth is really tiny, so it is hard for her to get at the back ones, and those are the ones that need cleaning. So I go Thursday for that. I have my very own hidey cave now too. A nice heavy box came from Pet360, and in another package of equipment for The Dad's job was a bunch of really crinkly brown craft paper in it. Momma put the box on its long side, and the flap hangs down. Then she put some of the paper in there, so I can crawl in and make confetti as much as I want. I can peep out from inside too. Momma wrote "Felix's hide-out" on the box! So no one (ahem Nana) will toss it out. I like it around here now when the holidays are over - I get kind of nervous with all the hullaballoo, and the human sister, while I like her - her boyfriend was rather loud. (he is nice, but does not know how to be quiet around me) anyways, they got an apartment, and moved out so now it is just Momma, The Dad & Nana with us kittles. I like it this way. Momma puts on classical music in the morning, and it plays all day while she works in the office. There is a bed in there, so I sometimes lay on it to keep her company. Nana usually has her room a bit dark when she watched tv, and it is really warm in there, so I visit her too. I know Momma wishes that I could run and play like a young kitty, but remember Momma - it's warm in the house and I have a full tummy. I get so much love. I am able to walk alot more, and play some. Life is good. Of course I am nervous about my teeth, but I will be sure to give a shout out either Thursday afternoon, or Friday to let you know I am all clear. Momma has some really cute pics of me, but we are waiting until Catster is all settled, because we don't want to take a chance of anything messing up trying to post anything. Take care all & stay warm! Those of my pals up past your eyeballs in snow - we feel for you - too much white stuff! kitty chirps to all! your pal Feefs
