Again we are sorry we are not around as so many others, but we are sitting here waiting for the day we get our catster back and we can all have fun. Right now Mom says she finds it boring and sad that no one is around. We loved reading our friends diaries so we knew what is happening, hoping we will have our diaries like now but we can make comments again.
Ok now for me, I went to the vet yesterday my 6 month check up for my kidneys.
Mom bought a baby scale to weight all of us especially me and Tu. Anyway I have lost about a pound since my vet visit in September. Trying to figure out why!
My heart was racing so they decided to take my blood pressure, this was a first, Mom let me go back into my carrier where I felt safe, she was petting and scritching me to help me relax and it worked. My blood pressure was OK.
My blood work for my kidneys about the same, they are a little high but no change for the most part, my white blood cell count is a little high.
Mom talked to the vet about my weight lose which is a concern for all, they figured out that even though I am eating I am not eating enough. So I now get a pill every 3 days to help my appetite and Forti flora to help my tummy and to help me not have the poops that I do have sometimes.
It is tuff being old, Mom agrees....I really am doing good besides loosing weight, I am out more, spend more time with Mom I even get on the bed to lay on Mom.
This kitty is still hanging in there and everyday it amazes Mom how well I am doing. She still worries about me and sometimes she cries because she knows that I will not get better and one day it will be time to let me go, but until then we are enjoying each and everyday, getting lots of love...

Hi friends, wanted to let you all know I am still doing well and maintaining my weight....Mom got us a scale so she doesn't have to take me every month to the vet to get weighed too stressful for me, Mom just calls the vet and tells her. They have to make sure I am not losing too much weight actually keeping my weight, if I do then they have to change my thyroid medication, right now I am getting 1/4 of a pill daily.
Mom is feeding me can food during the day to help me keep on the weight, I am also getting some kitten food to help as well, yes I know I am not a kitten for from it but she thinks it will help me, Zeke likes it too and he is getting feed can through out the day too because he doesn't eat enough.
I am loving my area, I am a lot happier and no Tu Two chasing me through the house like she did in San Diego it stressed me out. Mom brushes me every day, sometimes she has to use the combs to get mats out because now my fur is more oily...it sucks getting older, but mom has to do it so I don't get all matted. I have to say I don't like it when she does that and then I hide in my bed.
Enjoying life and a happy kitty!

Hello to all of our friends,
Sorry we haven't been around we have to say that it has been hard on Mom being here,she is working on getting used to living here instead of our hometown San Diego. First the weather is so different, we are out in a rural area so everything is miles away. At first in our cul de sac there were only us and our lady neighbor that lived here, now we have another that lives here full time they are from San Diego...2 others still haven't moved in full time one will as soon as he sells his house in California and the other will retire next October and they will then move here full time, the only house that the owners won't be full time only come during the cooler months like lots of others in our community.
After the first of the year Mom will be getting involved in a group that makes cards to send to the troops overseas, a functional fitness glass and both Mom & Dad will go to their Friday social to hopefully meet more people. So we are hoping Mom will get out and meet other ladies because we know she has been sad leaving so much behind...don't get us wrong yeah Mom is sad but as the same time she is happy too...she loves our house and she knows that it will take at least a year maybe even more to get used to being here.
Mom went to a cookie exchange yesterday and met some more ladies that live here, she had fun and really enjoyed herself, we are all so happy to hear she did, she even brought lots of goodies home, darn none for us kitties. This is where Mom found out about the card group 2 ladies invited her to come and also about the fitness classes. WOW we are so happy Mom went and met ladies and now she feels a little better about being here, she has been so lonely & sad which makes us sad for her.
We are doing fine, love having Mom and Dad home all day, we are getting even more spoiled and we have them wrapped around our paws, yes we do!
As this week is coming with Christmas we wanted to make sure we wish all of our friends a Merry Christmas...excuse me Meowy Catmus from all of us, we hope all kitties will have a nice warm place with lots of food and loving humans to be with.
We all send you our love, lots of hugs and butterfly kisses
