How We Met

Shadow & I were 7 on 4/10/2013
Terri was born on a cold April day in Marlborough MA to a feral mommy cat. A rescue group found the litter. The mommy cat was spayed,but died during surgery. Terri, the runt of the litter, was put into a foster home with other dogs & cats. She had respiratory problems due to her size. At the same time, Shadow another feral kitten was put into the same foster home, where they were friends for six months. The rescue group would only adopt them out as a pair. Terri's human mom fell in love with her at first sight! Both kitties went to their furrever home, together, on Oct.11 2006

Hello Terri
Thanks for your prayers & good wishes. I did not receive good mews from Dr. William today. My BUN went from 29 to 49 and Creatinine from 2.3 to 4.2 So the kidney disease is progressing. I weigh only 8.9 pounds which is down a whole pound from June (9.9). I got sub q fluids today. I have to go back Saturday morning and Monday morning for more sub q. Also on Monday he will do another BUN & Creatinine check, to see if the hydration is helping.

The good mews is that my thyroid is normal (3.4), both ofmy eyes measured good on the Schirmer eye test and I do not have any red or irritated gums inmy mouth.My temp was 101.5 which is good and my RBC is very good – I am not anemic. I am not dehydrated as I still drink water. When we got home, I was starving so I ate some k/d canned tuna & veggies stew.

We are trying to focus on the pawsitives right now. But of course Mommy is very worried & upset. Please keep us in your prayers for better mews on Monday.

Hugs,
Q MerryBelle & Mommy Angela

P.S. Be a good girl & take your meds to rid that nasty UTI. I took meds for 30 days for e-coli. It was no fun!

Hello Terri
What’s purring with you? I heard a nasty rumor that I have an appointment with Dr. William tomorrow morning for my 3 month BUN & Creatinine bloodwork recheck, Schirmer eye test & another thyroid panel. That means NO eating for anyone here tomorrow morning. If one of us has to do without food, Mommy says it’s only fair that we all should including herself. Boy, will Sissy & Casper Todd be mad!!!

I have not been eating well, which is a symptom of my kidney disease. Mommy is worried about me and we would appreciate your prayers.

With Warm Hugs,
Q MerryBelle

Good Morning kitties. Today's topic is: ASTHMA

It wasn't so long ago the only thing in your yard faster then your cat was the occasional fly lucky enough to get away. These days, even short outdoor romps are triggering asthma attacks causing wheezing, coughing and fatigue.

SHAVE OFF A FEW POUNDS: While every cat should be 'fit & trim', it's particularly important for cats with asthma. The signs of asthma can be worse if kitty is obese.

CRANK UP THE HUMIDIFIER: Breathing dry air irritates the airways, which can trigger attacks. Try putting a vaporizer or a humidifier to boost humidity levels to between 30 - 40%.

KICK THE HABIT: Surely your cat doesn't smoke, but 2nd hand smoke from you or your friends can make the problem worse. Pets are more vulnerable to smoke then people.

BRING HIM INDOORS: If you suspect hay fever is kicking off his attacks, it might help to keep him indoors at the height of pollen season.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT LITTER: Most cat litters puff up the dust whenever Fluffy starts to dig. Look for dust-free litter or use sand instead.

DO EXTRA CLEANING: Even small amounts of floating dirt & dust can trigger an attack, so it's important to keep your cats area squeaky clean.

FILTER OUT THE PROBLEM: If your home is heated & Cooled with a central system, consider installing an electrostatic filter...They can be expensive, but they do filter out some types of particles.

TRY SUPPLEMENTAL PROTECTION: Some vets believe that giving cats antioxidant vitamins, which apparently help 'neutralize' harmful oxygen molecules in the body, can help relieve a number of health problems, including asthma. Give your cat a childs does of Vitamin C or E once a week. Just crumble it up and put it in her food.

CALM KITTY'S KARMA: Asthma has long been linked to stress in pets as well as people. When asthma is flaring, it might be a good idea to nix activities that upset your feline, like going to the groomer or vacuuming the floor.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: If your cat has just started coughing or wheezing, and has had asthma before, but the symptoms are getting worse, don't take chances. Call your vet right away...he can recommend what treatment is best for your feline friend.

TOMORROW: BITING.

Good afternoon kitties, today's topic is all about the JEALOUSY we all feel in multi-pet households!

Life with your pet used to be rosy. But these days the emotional hue is more jealousy. either a new human mate, a new baby or even another pet has entered your life. While pets don't jealousy the same as people do, that's not to say your little darlings don't feel a tad jealous.

DON'T DEMOTE HIM: No one enjoys being the bottom dog{or cat}, so try to make your pet feel special and loved before the source of the stress came into your life.

FEED HER FIRST: If a new pet is causing your pet to see 'green', be sure to give the 'original' pet top priority. No matter how irresistible a new pet may be, alwys feed your 1st pet first. Do the same when giving attention.

TREAD GENTLY: You might think that the new person in your life is making your furry friend jealous, but in fact he could be feeling fear. Have your new friend speak gently to your pet. With cats, be patient and him make the 1st move. The person should never approach the cat 1st and insist on being friends, that will never work.

FOR CATS ONLY!!!
PUT HER ON A PEDESTAL: It's important to realize cats feel more secure when they have a high vantage point. So make sure your cat has a place to climb to where she can sit and watch what is going on. If you can't add shelving to your walls buy cat trees which are readily available at most retailers and pet stores, or if you really feel creative, make your own, but be sure to carpet it and use some sisal rope as well.

MAKE INTRODUCTIONS SLOWLY: If you just got a new pet, don't don't give him the run of the house immediately. This will make your first cat go nuts. Keep the cats in separate areas for a day or two. Then trade off their areas so they get used to each other's scent. If the cats seem alright after 2 days, let them 'meet' face to face. However if they start growling and hissing, keep them separated for another few days..keep this up til the hissing stops...soon they will learn to live together in harmony.

FIGHTS: If 2 cats go at it in a fight, NEVER try to put your hand in the middle to break it up, you may be bitten or scratched. One sure way to get them separated is to keep a squirt bottle on hand, most cats hate to be squirted and will separate and run.

TOMORROW: ASTHMA

Hello Dame Terri
What’s meowy with you? I am being very picky about what I eat. I decided this past week that I do not want to eat my lysine treats. These are the only treats I am allowed because of my kidney disease. The lysine treats are for my herpes virus which affects the dryness in my eyes. Mommy turned on our central heat last week because it is so very cold here. The heat also affects the dryness in my eyes.

Right now I will eat the lysine powder in Iams Purrfect Delights canned foods. Dr. William sent me free samples of two new flavors of the prescription k/d canned foods - tuna & veggies in sauce and chicken & veggies. I ate those for a few days, then decided they were nasty. I am still eating both the prescription k/d and Purina nf dry foods.

I am maintaining my weight of 9 lbs, 10 oz. Mommy weighs us every Caturday morning on her digital pet scales. She stays worried about me. She says it is so difficult to have an older, sick baby. I still seem to feel good as I run & play with my wand toys. I go back to Dr. William in December for my 3 month BUN & Creatinine recheck. Worrying is what Moms do best, right?

How did you vet visit go yesterday? Good, we hope.

Hi Dame Terri! Yes, I saw snow. It was my
first time and I can say for sure I don't care for it! We didn't get too much, actually. The west side of MI got lots because of the lake effect, but Midland is about 30 miles inland from Saginaw Bay on Lake Huron. We are also in a valley, so we rarely get hit as hard as many places in the state. My Mom V has told me about living outside during the winter and we've both agreed that we prefer the indoor life. MOL!!

How is your weather? We hope everyone there is doing well. Hugs, Pique and the Zoo Crew

Hello Dame Terri
Thank you for pawing by to ask about my visit with Dr. William. I had a wonderful checkup. I weigh 12.4 lbs. My eyes, ears, heart, & teeth are all good. My blood work was good, BUN = 26. The only little red flag is my Creatinine = 2.6 (normal is 0.8-2.4) Doc said not to worry (easier said than done), since my BUN is normal and my BUN/Crea ratio is 10 which is good. If my BUN was high, then it would be cause for concern.

Also my EOS was high at .99 (normal is .10 -.79). EOS is an abbreviation for eosinophil, which is a white blood cell primarily involved in fighting allergies or parasites. I do not have parasites as my poop specimen was negative and my urine sample was all clear. The changes in our weather could be causing me to have some allergies, although I am not sneezing or wheezing.

The arthritis in my hips has not changed significantly since last year, so that is good mews. My thyroid is 2.2 which is very good for a 13 year old lady like myself. Vet tech Jolynn trimmed my nails. So all in all, a very good visit. But I was very glad to be home!

Stay warm. It was 80 degrees here Tuesday. Today our high is 45, with 24 degrees forecast for tonight. Brrrr!

Good luck Tuesday. Let us know what Doc says.

Kisses,
Q Sissy

KELSEES KAT REMEDIES
Good evening all..today were are discussing that awful stuff called DIARRHEA{upset tummy, too}. Today's suggestion by: TOBY!!

TRY YOUR HAND AT BLAND: When your cat is ready to eat again, keep her digestive system calm by giving her cooked white rice mixed with boiled hamburger or skinless white meat chicken. Vets recommend mixing 2 parts rice to one part meat and feeding your cat small amounts every for hours for 2 days.

FIRM IT WITH FIBER: If your cats{or dogs} stools are still a little soft--either after or during her bland diet, try adding a small amount of Metamusil to her food.Depending on your pets size, he recommends giving between 1 1/4 tsp and 1 TBS of Metamusil a day for 2-3 days....just mix it water and pour it on her food.

KEEP HIS LIQUID LEVELS HIGH: Since Diarrhea can rapidly deplete the body of essential fluids, be sure to keep her water bowl full. It's also a good idea to fill a separate bowl with Gatorade...Like other sports drinks, Gatorade will help replenish minerals the body loses and needs, like potassium and sodium.

CUT OUT THE DAIRY: Most adult animals have difficulty digesting milk because they lack the enzyme{lactase} needed to digest a sugar{lactose} in milk. If you are feeding your pet milk and she has diarrhea, cut the milk out and you should see results in a few days.

SUPPRESS THE STRESS: Visiting the Vet, moving or having a new pet at home are just a few of the things that can upset your pet. To prevent emotional upheavals from getting the upper hand, talk to her gently and give her plenty of reassurance.

SAY NO TO DRUGS: While there are a number of OTC medications that can help ease the runs, many vets feel it's best to let the illness run its course.

SUGGESTIONS FROM TOBY: 1 tsp of yogurt daily for upset tummies and he recommends Mashed sweet potatoes for diarrhea and says they "really do work".

TOMORROW: DANDRUFF/DRY SKIN...keep them suggestion coming in.

Good morning..getting an early start today. One of mom's Niece's is in the hospital and she is leaving for the day...not sure when we she will be back..she got invited to stay for supper.

Today we are discussing the troublesome problem that face all us kitties: HAIRBALLS. Today's suggestion came from DEAN.

PASS IT WITH PETROLEUM: When your cat starts hacking, try giving her 1/4 tsp of petroleum jelly. This will help ease the hairball through the digestive tract rather then onto your carpet. If your cat doesn't like the taste of it, you can take advantage of his fastidious nature and put it on a front paw or under his nose. Being a cat, she will be inclined to clean it off.

TRY A TASTY ALTERNATIVE: Some hairball lubricants are downright delicious to cats. Pet stores sell several delectable kinds, like Laxatone and Petromalt.

BUTTER KITTY UP: One of the most effective hairball remedies is butter, and cats love it. Besides being a natural lubricant, butter makes the gall bladder contract and empty bile, a mild laxative, into the digestive tract. This helps speed hairballs out of a cats' system before they cause trouble. Give 1/2 to 1 tsp of butter once a day for a week. You don't want to use butter too often, though, because your cat could go from having hairballs to being a butterball.

FIX IT WITH FIBER: Sometimes a high fiber pet food is all it takes to accelerate the passage of a hairball. When shopping for a high fiber food, look for one containing 3.5 - 10% fiber..fiber content is listed on cat food labels.

FOIL THE FLEAS: If your cat is infested, she could be grooming herself more then usual and consequently swallowing more hair. If you have a tried-and-true flea busting method, use it and your cats hairball problem should improve.

COIF YOUR CAT: Combing and brushing your cats fur everyday can do wonders for hairball prevention. Cats shed hundreds of hairs a day, especially in Spring and Summer. If you brush these hairs away you cat won't be swallowing as many.

WIPE HIM DOWN: After grooming kitty, use a damp washcloth to remove any loose hairs the brush may have missed.

TAKE HIS MIND OFF HIS FUR: Some cats have personalties that make them compulsive lickers--they just can't get enough of grooming themselves. Over-grooming can also be a response to stress. Give your cat a much needed distraction..try playing with her more so she has something else to put her energy into.

Tomorrow: Constant meowing. Keep those suggestions coming in.

We have to remember that our Moms are very

Today we are discussing the following solutions:
FELINE ACNE--suggested by EVIE!!!

FELINE ACNE:

CLEAN IT DAILY: Gently washing your cats face with a mild soap and washcloth will remove surface bacteria and help break down material that may be plugging oil glands. To be most effective, the washcloth should be a little warmer than a baby's bath, but not scalding, Gently scrub, then rinse well with warm water to remove the soap.
DO NOT USE HUMAN DEODORANT SOAPS, which can irritate.

ADD SOME HEAT: Another way to help open clogged glands is by holding a hot pack to the area. The Vet recommends wetting a cloth with hot {NOT SCALDING} water. Wring it out and hold it to the affected area for about 5 minutes or until the cloth cools down. Do this once a day until the acne goes away.

REACH FOR ECHINACCA: Given orally, this infection battling herb, which is commonly sold in health food stores, may act like a mild antibiotic, stopping acne from the inside out.

RAID THE PLANTER: Applying a thin layer of gel from the aloe vera plant will help ease discomfort cause by painful acne. If you do not have an aloe vera plant, you can buy the gel at most health food stores.

DON'T SWAP MEDICINES: Drugs made for people are unlikely to be helpful when given to pets. Using acne products meant for humans will more then likely worsen the acne.

AVOID THE SQUEEZE: When a serious acne outbreak is making your pet uncomfortable, you may be tempted to squeeze the pimples yourself. DO NOT do it, squeezing pimples can be painful and in some cases will cause infected material to spread beneath the skin, causing a deeper infection.

LOOK AT THE BIG PICTURE: While most outbreaks of acne will stick around for a few days and then disappear, sometimes it's a constant problem. It may be that there is something in your pets environment--a certain type of flea collar, or the presence of household pesticides that's causing the problem. Try substituting an herbal flea collar which can be purchased at most Pet stores.

KEEP those suggestions coming in. Tomorrow we will cover Worms.

Monday kitten pounces
We know you've missed us grabbing your tails & chasing you all weekend (MOL) so we're going to catch up today.

It's a very blustery day outside but our silly dog insisted on going out to bark before sunrise. We never did figure out what she was barking at though. Silly mutt...MOL!
We're all doing great & have been very rambunctious since we last meowed at you. Mom had to take away a string that I (Piggy) found in sis' room. Mom says they're dangerous but I act like they're spaghetti so none are allowed to be in reach of our paws. It's a bummer but mom says it's better than needing an emergency vet trip. Hmmm....guess I'll agree with that because I don't like rides or strangers! Since that 'toy' has been removed we have no choice but to chase our older fursisters through the house & have several wrestling matches each day...MOL! Only Monkey will wrestle with us now but she's a pawful for either of us to handle alone. No problem though because we gang up on her & she loves it...MOL!

Well got to run so mom can get something to eat (hmmm...sounds like a purrfect idea to us too) so will leave you a tuna & catnip sandwich (in honor of National Sandwich day) & give you our sweetest purrs. Have a pawtastic Monday!

TODAY we are talking about DIABETES in Cats...today's topic bought to you by MIKE.

DIABETES IN KATS:

KEEP THEM TRIM: Being overweight can make diabetes much more difficult to control..we see these 16-pound cats that are producing insulin, but not enough.
To keep kitty trim and at a healthy weight the Vet recommends measuring her/his food to make sure you are not over feeding. You should hold back on the table scraps, which can pile on the pounds. {but we love them so}

SWITCH TO A HIGH-FIBER DIET: Giving kitty high-fiber foods can help stabilize the rate at which fuels enter the cells, keeping keeping blood sugar levels more constant.

KEEP THOSE PAWS MOVING: Exercise is important because it helps control weight. In addition, the more your kitty exercises, the less insulin her/his body requires.

GIVE MEDICINE REGULARLY: Perhaps the most important aspect of treating diabetes is to prevent blood sugar levels from swinging widly from high to low. That is why VETS recommend giving your pet medication at the same time each day.

REWARDS FOR GOOD BEHAVIOR: NO body enjoys getting shots, your pets included. To make the experience as comfortable as possible, be extremely loving, gentle and patient. After the shot reward kitty with plenty of LOVE and perhaps a small treat.

KEEP A SWEET HANDY: Giving kitty insulin will sometimes cause blood sugar to plunge too low, a condition called HYPOGLYCEMIA, so be sure to always have on hand a source of sugar if you have a diabetic pet...some vets recommend a small finger of honey or Karo syrup.

IF your pet experiences HYPOGLYCEMIA please take to the Vet ASAP.

Remember to keep the ailments coming in...tomorrow we will cover Feline acne.

A short meow
Hello dear furiends. We're sorry to be MIA right now but mom is still nursing a sinus infection & now a hurt back on top of it after she moved some furniture over the weekend. She says it feels a little better today but it's hard for her to sit at the computer for too long yet. All of us kitties are doing great though & we've been keeping ourselves entertained with our daily races through the house. Piglet & Sneakers have also been emptying out the toy basket every day but luckily dad has been picking those up so mom won't have to.
Well got to run so mom can get away from the computer chair & put the heating pad on her back again. Will meow at you again as soon as I can.

Big hugs,
Q Trixie & NICE Girls

Will the wet weather never end?
We're having withdrawals from not seeing Mr Sunshine for so many days & it's definitely not good for helping mom feel better either! She hasn't been able to sleep well all week due to congestion & coughing but we're trying our best to purr her to sleep several times throughout the day so she'll get over this nasty stuff. Luckily dad & the kids seem to be fine so far so hoping they don't come down with anything over their fall break....which starts tomorrow.

Happy Feral Cat Day everyfur! There's only two of us (that's me & Patches) that aren't 'officially' a feral cat, or feral cat offspring. I was found at a pet store after being born inside, & Patches had been left outside in the yard by her previous 'owners' when they moved & took her 3 sisters with them. Lucky for her that their neighbor took care of her & told mom about her! All the rest of our crew (including Angels Zaboo, Sherman & Cloudy) have come from the great outdoors. Mom thinks Angel Zaboo escaped from someone's house because he was so tame, Angel Sherman was the only survivor of a feral mom that had kittens too late & Angel Cloudy was born to a very feral mommy cat that had been thrown out of a car window. Fluffinella was (& still is...MOL) a wild child born outside to feral mom Sassee, as are Piglet & Sneakers...although they have no memory of being outside kitties at all. Monkey just appeared so we have no idea where she actually came from, but we assume it could have been from the nearest neighbor's barn. We give a big paws up to all the pawents of feral kitties & doggies around the world today & thank them for the outpouring of love they give to their furbabies, as well as the opportunity to have a carefree life instead of the struggles that so many other animals in the world still have each day as they try to survive. Wishing all ferals could have a furever home like we're so blessed with, & saying prayers that they will find enough food & shelter until that one special person comes along to rescue them.

Well got to go so we can do some more purring in mom's ear & pile all around her blanket to keep her there until she takes a nap. Will meow at you again when I can.

Purrs of love,
Q Trixie, NICE Girls & Angels

I see that you *have* gotten a badge once or
twice, and last year you beat out Shadow. That's good! I don't have any competition for my badge. I'm the only me here!

Mom tried to get a picture of me up that ponytail plant, but she couldn't get her camera out fast enough. By the time she was ready I was almost all the way down and the picture doesn't really show me too well. There will probably be more occasions to get a snapshot though. A ponytail plant looks a bit like a palm tree, only with long thin leaves sprouting out of the top part of the plant. Ours now has several "suckers" growing out of the trunk lower down, too. Mom's plant is over 30 years old and would be about 8" taller but she broke part of the top off last fall getting it back in the house. It's not just tall, it's heavy!

Oh, rain! It just got very dark out, too. Not a good thing. Hugs, Pique and the Zoo Crew

Hi Terri
We got up to rain today, and it has been drizzling all day. WE did get to go on the back porch where the rain can't get us, but now we are all in the house with mom.

It is quite humid though..makes my fur all unruly {MOL}...nah, but I am losing some of it all over moms outfit. I just woke up from a nap, I was sleeping with Jesse on mom's bed...he is still sleeping, but I am ow sitting on moms lap.

Mom bought out that dreadful floor monster today..1st she took it outside and took it apart, we thought she was breaking it, but no..she was cleaning it out, then she turned it on and scared us.

We got new litter in our boxes today..mom was busy all morning, she went downstairs and bought up all our kitty beds for the cooler nights we have...we never use them in the Summer or warm weather, only when it is cold outside....she also took all the fans downstairs and said open windows can keep it cool now.

Well, that is all I have to report today. Not a lot happening on a damp drizzly day!

Hope you have a pawsome evening!
Purrs & Pawhuggz!!!

I'm calling a foul, Terri! Both you and your
brother had adoptiversaries yesterday, but HE is COTD. How is that fair?? It isn't!

Mom said to tell you that maybe I do have some of Angel Jesse in me after all. I've started doing things he used to do, like watch the toilet flush and climbing the plants in the living room. Mom has a ponytail plant that is at least 8' tall (it brushes the ceiling) and she caught me up near the top of it this morning. Oops! Naughty Pique! Hugs, Pique and the Zoo Crew
