She is fascinated with soap bubbles and is always putting her paw in the dish water! Also, playing hockey goalee with ice chips, being held , kneading mom's neck
pulling the tufts of hair on her feet, being brushed, being put out of the office when she wants to snuggle.
ice cube chip to chase around the floor, she jumps up on the counter when she hears me crack an ice cube tray!! She loves twist ties and once climbed completely into the bottom drawer of the freezer because she saw one on a bag! Silly girl
Favorite Nap Spot:
On the bed with her front legs dangling over the edge, or on Dad's desk, or in a cat bed with Enzo
Purina Pro Plan Indoor, with Friskies canned, or Fancy Feast for a treat, Friskies Party Mix
opening cupboard doors (we had to put magnetic locks on them), opening bi-fold doors, neck hugs, french kisses
We saw Hannah at an adoption site from a local shelter. We were "only looking" (right), but saw the sign on her and her siblings cage, saying that they were found at the city dump. She was no doubt the ugliest kitten I had ever seen! Stringy gray fur, very scrawny, runny eyes, and missing all the hair on the top of her head. Needless to say, she stole my heart. I convinced my patient husband that she'd never be chosen, so we took her home. I keep forgetting to add, the shelter didn't think anyone would want her either, because they just gave her to me, with no adoption fee! It has to be the best decision I have ever made. This little girl has brought more pure love and affection, and more joy to my life than I ever could have imagined. I can't stand to be away from her.
We learned from her foster mother, that a puppy she was fostered with was responsible for chewing the fur from her head. She looked more like a monkey, than a kitten. She has almost no voice, just squeaks, or says "hah", like she is saying her name! Her purr is just a vibration. Hannah holds her paws up to be lifted into my arms. She would let me carry her for hours. Each morning she wakes me kneading and suckling my neck, and giving me french kisses. She loves to wrestle with the boys, and when we brought Enzo home, she camped out on top of his carrier and they became best friends. Hannah is the best part of my life right now. No matter how bad the day has been, everything is okay again when she jumps into my arms, and wraps those fuzzy feet around my neck! When I am holding her, it's just she and I...the rest of the world doesn't even exist. My lifetime love.

Mom is home from the hospital! She can't hold me yet, they are being cautious about infection. Hey, I'm clean, I wash every day, especially my face. Daddy did a good job taking care of us but we're glad momma is back. I'm going to let her tell about it in her own words.
Hello Catster friends,
This was quite a scary experience. The procedure was much more complex than I first was told. There were 7 people in the operating room with me. A neuro-technichian was there to do nothing more than protect my spinal cord. Before surgery he placed numerous electrodes on all the muscle groups of my body. After I was asleep he put needles similar to acupuncture needles into my skull. During the operation he randomly stimulated parts of my brain and muscles and a neurologist in Austin sat in a room full of monitor screens and watched. This was to make sure they did not compromise my spinal column. Impressive. The surgeon removed the crushed vertebrae through the front of my neck. He then placed a porous spacer in, which will allow bone and nerve tissue to regrow and fuse together over time. Then the screwed the two vertebrae above and below the spacer together with a permanent titanium plate. The surgery went perfectly but it will take time to tell how many of my symptoms it will relieve. For now I have to use a walker to get around. Next surgery will be my back, maybe in the Fall. I have to take it very easy for awhile, which is hard for me as I am prone to over-doing it. So I might not be back to Catster for a few days yet, but I sure have missed everyone.
We got hammered pretty hard by the rains. The ceiling in our laundry room came down and made an awful mess. David will have to pull the washer and dryer out this weekend so we can clean it up. I had washed everything up and folded it all before my surgery. Needless to say, the ceiling came down all over the clean stacks. The huge drainage ditch behind our subdivision is full to the top, and the ducks are loving it. Seagulls have also found our new "fresh water lake"! Well, it's time for a pain pill and they make me drowsy so will say goodbye for now and I send my love and gratitude for all the well wishes and prayers.

I don't usually write in my diary twice in one day, but this was too good to skip. giggle
Mom was in the bathroom with my sisfur Annie in her lap. She finished her business there and flushed the toilet. Then I heard her shout "OH NO!"
Any guesses? Not her cell phone, that was my first guess. She saw something she's never seen before...a HUGE green lizard in the toilet, swimming for his life as the toilet was flushing! She had no choice but to reach in and grab him before he went down the drain. hahaha mom. Then she held him very carefully but tightly and went over to the sink and gave him a bath! Murphy was very curious to see what she had caught. So mom carried him outside and set him free in the front flowerbed. I bet that lizard will be telling his buddies about his harrowing adventure and escape from certain drowning!!!
Remind me sometime to tell you about her giving CPR to a drowned bat...sheesh mom!

Hello my dear friends~
All us cats are doing fine here. It got chilly this week, down to 50 degrees.
Mom had just washed all our cat blankets to be put away for the summer!
The two kittens are doing great. Dad and mom are weaning them now and they enjoyed their first taste of kitten food! Their temporary names are Kieran, Irish for "little dark one" and Ciaran, meaning "little friend". She is the friendliest one and has the prettiest blue eyes. Looks like they will both be long haired, like their mom and pop. I will post another picture soon.
Now, about my mom and pop...
Dad is looking for a new job. He is doing well at his current one but his pay just isn't enough to take care of us and mom can't go back to work for a while yet. I might not be around very much on Catster for a little bit while she get's better. I'm going to let her tell you the rest.
I finally know what is causing most of my problems and it's fairly serious. I have a condition called Myelomalcia. Without going into boring detail it involves softening and compression of the spine, specifically in my neck and lower back. Vertebrae are crushing nerves and restricting the flow of spinal fluid. Damage may not reverse, but there is some hope with surgery. The surgeon said the neck must be done first because while the back could cause me to be in a wheelchair, the neck can cause paralysis. So I am scheduled for surgery on May 12th, which is the soonest he could perform it. This will involve removing one vertebrae and fusing two others together. I will have to wear a neck brace for six weeks. After that he'll do another MRI and also see what symptoms have abated and which remain. My back will be next. The pain in my back is bearable, but my legs are numb and very weak so it makes things hard to do around here. But I have a lot to clean and prepare. I will have limited time on Catster until after the surgery and apologize in advance for the birthdays and bridge days I will miss. My shoulder is healing fairly well, with about 75% of the strength back and about 50% of the range of motion. Well, that is about all my woes this time. Please keep me in your prayers, mostly because as our cat friend Ashlynne said "everyone depends on the mamma". I do love you all tremendously for the support and strength you have given me through our Catster friendships.
