How We Met

Mom saw Strudel at PetSmart and just loved her color at first sight. She was up for adoption from a local rescue group,and mom decided to add her to this crazy cat house. She now lives 'in harmony' with 15 other kitties. Some days are more harmonious than others. Strudel has a strong pursonality and doesn't always see 'eye to eye' with some of the other kitties here but mom makes it work.

Hi Strudel
We're sorry that Orzo has CRF too. I go for my first shot today.We'll let you know how it goes. Mom just wants me to have the best quality of life possible,so she is hoping this will make me feel better, not that I feel that bad yet, but we are hoping that it will avoid all the nasty side effects of CRF. I have the nausea under control now with Cerenia too! Hugs and purrs,

Come visit me, ~*~Sabrina ~*~.

Hi Strudel
We couldn't email your mom because our main computer is in the shop and Mom did not have your email address set up on webmail... my vet visit on Friday did not go well at all. My BUN is climbing up,and my little kidneys are giving out. I am going to go ahead and start Epogen. My doctor discussed it in length with mom, explaining how it will not affect the end result, but will just help me feel better, and the expense and all. Mom is going to go ahead with it, and I get my first shot on Thursday. We know Beaker was getting it too, so we wanted to let you know.
Hugs and purrs,

Hello Strudel
What’s mew? Last night was our shelter BARL’s 11th annual Celebrity Dinner and Auction. This is their biggest fundraiser each year. This year more than $25,000 was raised. Although it is less than in previous years, this is still a remarkable amount for one night and will help take care of the homeless babies.

Have a beautiful day.

good morning!
janet would've loved to have been able to get pictures of the first frost due in tomorrow morning as it's supposed to be between the upper 20s and lower 30s for the first time this season. although we've seen 34 a week ago, we did warm back up and fast after that one cold morning and been more like summer than fall and early fall the past two days as well as this mor-ning with a low of 63 out there. got showers moving on in be-fore it gets cold and then cold air comes rushing on in. most of the leaves peaked just around the time when we got all the rain 1.5" the other day and down they all came, although janet did get a few good ones yesterday when she walked some of the conservation trails she's done before and connects with the main roads she got some good color but not enough she said to satisfy her for what she lost when her camera deleted 2 weeks worth of color on long walks. sandy,ab

Hello Strudel
No need to apologize for not visiting. Life gets in the way of our fun, doesn't it? We hope y'all were safe from the storms. Most of the really bad stuff went north of us, thank goodness. We did have some big winds, heavy rains, thunder & lightning. We were under a Tornado Watch all day & into the night Monday and also a Flash Flood Warning. We survived! It was 90 degrees Monday and now it's in the mid 70s. Very nice. Too bad it won't last beyond today.

We are doing ok. I am being a SUPER picky eater. Hope all is well at the Cathouse.

Have a nice day.

with warming temps we'll make the mid to upper 70s both today and tomorrow with a cloud to sun by this afternoon so should be ideal and tonight again into the 60s so nice once again for a change rather than the lower 30s and 50s of yesterday. sandy,ab

♥ From The B.A. Kitties' Desk...♥
Good evening dearest Strudel, Mom Ida and all the fur babies! How are you, friends?...
Please forgive us for being gone for a long time. Momma had a very busy month and we also had some troubles with our PC. Grandma accidentally spilled a cup of coffee over one of our notebooks and we had to fix it.
We missed all our friends and it is so nice to be back. Thank you ever so much for wishing Sally and Simba a happy birthday last 22nd September. Dad also celebrated his birthday on the same day and they all had a great time!
Spring has arrived to our home and the days are sunny and warm. Mom says you can see flowers everywhere and the birds are visiting our windows again.
Mommy is still sad about his special boy, Martin, who crossed to the Rainbow Bridge last Thursday. He was one of the stray boys she feeds. He was a very sweet kitty and Mom loved him with all her heart. We've been giving her many purrs to make her feel better.
Thanks a lot for your comforting words and lovely messages; they mean the world for Mom.
Last night our parents had a party at home to celebrate Dad's birthday and the house was full of friends and family. Most of us stayed upstairs, but Miss Muni was really glad to be around making friends and purring to all the guests. She is just a wonderful host. She also had much fun playing with the bows of the gifts. MOL!
We hope you have a super purrfect week. We send you a huge bunch of whisker kisses and hugs...
With much love,
from your friends always,
Lola, Simba and all the Buenos Aires Kitties!

happy fall!
we're transitioning from sticky summer like temps of yesterday and this morning to the cooler or colder drier stuff we had the past 2 weeks. janet and nat ran one errand to her store sat for a prescription for mommy which is helping to to not hear music upstairs and sleep through the night as she/nat both didn't get up till 9 yesterday morning! now that's late for them both as mommy is usually up between 7:30-8:30 and nat around 8-9. janet of course was up her normal time of 2:30-45 getting ready to get up and blog. not much went on yesterday although master did his best to try to get them to go and visit him instead of today, but nothing doing since they have errands to run and it's visiting day as mommy now goes along on mondays so janet sits out in the car reading till they come out. we've got quite a few splashes of colors popping here and will likely through the rest of this and all of next month. usually peaks around columbus day hol-iday weekend. sandy,ab,haley,angels

sports day wednesday/sleepover tomorrow night.

believe it or not
that was a some shops in northern ct. when janet and nat were there in early august! she's just got the planters shown here which were extemely popular down there and janet felt justified in taking pictures as there were some good photo ops there. she's just about to start on the flowers which were up before she just changed them again on fb which means we're well behind, but heck changing them 3 times a week is getting it done. just missed first frost this morning and another chance coming up on thursday next week so we heard last night, down to an even 40 again when janet last looked. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Strudel!
Long time no meow! How is Beaker doing? I overheard that I have to visit Dr Candy next week because mom is concerned that I am losing too much weight. I am still eating my dry KD but I turn my nose up at most of the canned food she opens, I will gobble something up one day and then not like it the next. Is that what us kitties are supposed to do? Mom is also going to see if I might need daily fluids instead of every other day. I was checked in May so it is about time now to go again.
Mom is busy, she took up kayacking and goes out in the bay, on Sunday she is going with some friends to the caves in LaJolla, there are lots of sea lions there. She has "run into" several of them in the bay and they seem to ignore her. Mom loves them, they are very cat like.

good morning!
janet's got a really good easy recipe which has 2 cheeses, grape/cherry tomatoes, celery, cukes, and any other veggie to make a classic greek salad with balsamic/honey dressing as well as feta and shaker parmesan or another shaker cheese and has it quite often. she got introduced to that last year when up in new hampshire by herself. she says she wants to go off again next year, but not likely seeing she'll add natty onto her car in-surance policy and with rates jumping again next year she'll have to stay with working all but 1 day a week just to pay for it and any other repairs if any to her car! this year $3,000 or around that in repairs since she got home from nashville in early may! knock on wood, tap, tap, tap, no more big repairs if that this year! sandy,ab,haley,angels

janet said if she did live closer to us she would've gotten plenty of cukes and some of the tomatoes as she and mommy just don't eat a lot of either of them even though they're so good for you! janet says the tomatoes are to acidic for her system so only has them occasionally and is starting to stop having tomato juice so often and go back to fruit juices and water for lunch with her meals! sandy,ab,haley,angels

did you have
a nice long holiday weekend? janet worked it and is work-ing again this morning as you can tell by her early blog-ging! she now gets up at 3am just to get things done on here so she's got a half hour to get what she can of email and fb done, but seeing those aren't clogged with junk as they usually are it's easy so far like this past weekend was even with the students moving in. they don't come out till mid to late afternoons and evenings and that's way beyond when she's working 7-11am! it's errands and call the garage about her car day as well. sandy,ab,haley, angels

Hi Strudel & Fursibs
Thank you so much for the COTD earlier last week. I was so honored to be in spotlight for my 5th Badge...I am so blessed to have such pawsome friends like you.

I went back to the vet and I am at 90%. I have to go back in 2 weeks for 1 more antibiotic shot to be certain that the infection is totally gone....the Vet said I was in "Great Spirits".

Mom thought I was funny cause all the way there in the stroller I meowed loudly and some of the people on the street were 'awwwing' and 'ohhhing', hoe embarrassing.
Once i got to the Vet and got up on the exam table I started purring. I like the Vet, he is very nice...I don't like it when he takes my temperature though...that is very embarrassing to say the least and mom has to watch.

We had a stormy rainy day today. Rained off and on all day, one of those days when all you want to do is sleep and catnap the day away.

Winston bought home a Pizza from work cause whoever ordered it never came to get it, so he bought it home to mom and she was pleased cause she did not have to cook dinner tonight and of course she shared 1 of the pepperoni's with me and Kelsee...she doesn't like to give us much of that cause of the spices.

Well, I am off to take another kitty nap. Hope you have a pawsome evening!

Hi Strudel!
We're glad Beaker is holding his own. So am I but I move around like a little old lady...but that's 'cause I am one! Mom is not sure how well the Cosequin is working, and I seem to avoid the food she sprinkles it on...any ideas?

Mom likes the Dr Preager veggie burgers so she doesn't make any of her own. We're glad you like those lentils, mom does too. She once heard a radio commercial for them and they come from a small farm in France, Normandy we think they said. The farm can't be that small because they are supplying all of Trader Joes!!

We hope you are enjoying your summer, Mom has taken up kayaking and goes out on a 4 mile paddle once a week through a business that rents out the kayaks on the bay. So far she has gone twice, and will go again this week. They go at 6 and come back at 8. (this will stop in October) The big bonus is they come back past a barge that also has lots of sea lions and they get up close and purrsonal! Mom loves sea lions because they are so cat like.

Let us know about the vet visit, ok? Hugs and purrs,

Hello Strudel
I have wonderful mews! Dr. William called Mommy with the results from my urine culture. There was no bacterial growth! Woo hoo!!! He said for me to take the rest of the 30 day supply of Baytril (7 more nights) just to be safe. Mommy is much relieved. The Baytril has decreased my appetite. I weigh only 9 lbs., 10 oz now but thankfully I seem to feel good and I still play with my wand toys.

Just wanted to share my good mews with you. Thanks so much for your prayers. Mommy & I both appreciate them. We believe prayers really do work.

Hope your day is as pawsome as mine.

Hi Strudel
Yes, I have problems jumping up and sometimes I look wobbly. I take Cosequin for my arthritis and Mom thinks it helps, but the problem is sometimes I don't eat all my canned food, and she has to open to capsules and sprinkle it on the canned food.

We're glad your mom enjoys the lentils, we always have some in the fridge in case Mom doesn't have anything for dinner. Mom clipped a recipe last night for a salad that calls for cooked lentils, she'll try it and will let you know if it's any good.

Nothing else new here except Mom is cat sitting for my neighbors, Omar and Cheese. Hugs and purrs,

♥ Monday Purrs From Buenos Aires!♥
Hello sweet Strudel and family!! How are you, my friend? It's been so long since I heard from you!! I miss you.

Mom and Dad went to a Cat Show on Saturday and Momma was petting another kitties. (Again!) It was a small exhibition but they had a very good time. There were British Shorthair, Maine Coon, Persian, Exotic, Siamese, Oriental, Bengal, Cornish Rex and Devon Rex Cats. Our parents were glad to talk with a couple of breeders they know.
Dad was in love with a six months old Bengal boy. Mom told us he was so cute and had huge green eyes.

On Sunday we all watched the Football World Cup Game against Germany. We purred for Argentina and although we did not win, it was a good game and we're proud of our boys. Germany has a great team too.

No sun this morning. We woke up with cloudy skies and it started to rain not long ago. A purrfect evening to stay napping and being lazy.
We hope you all have a wonderful week. We're sending you tons of whisker kisses and hugs...
With much love,
from your friends always,

janet would
ride her bike to work, but the bike path is closed in spots and the other route she'd have to use is the main roads despite the sidewalk being what's called a biwalk meaning pedestrian/bike path, but she'd have to leave here around 5;30 to get there for 7 most likely. had boomers 2 waves when they said a scant chance as yesterday looked like rain all day, but none so janet sat out and enjoyed the breezes as it was quite windy from time to time. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Strudel!
Does your mom read Martha Stewart's Living magazine? We just got our new issue and there are several interesting vegetarian recipes. Maybe your mom can look at the website? If they are not there, let mom know and she will type them for you. The cover has a fruit salad of cucumber, cantalope and watermelon. Mom thinks that might be something to try..she has never thought of adding cucumber to a fruit salad. Mom is going to a barbeque on the 4th and is thinking of bringing this.

Mom is glad that Whole Foods got busted. The employees at our neighborhood store are very questionable, too lots of tattooes and piercings like lips and nose and 3 inch holes in the air lobe, etc. and most do not seem very helpful. There is a larger store in La Jolla that mom prefers but it is 10 miles away versus one mile. Mom has always felt that their scales were off and that they were price gouging. It's too bad TJ's doesn't have a better selection of produce, but we do have Sprouts here in the neighborhood which is mostly produce, mom shops mostly at TJ's and Sprouts. She buys very little at the regular grocery store. Hope you are having a purrfect Tuesday!

Hi Strudel!
Mom does eat meat a few times a week, but very little red meat and never the stuff with nitrates like hot dogs and bacon. As far as sea food, Mom only likes shrimp,lobster and scallops. She tries to stay away from processed foods too because they are so unhealthy. It's too bad Dad has such a bad diet, does he follow the diabetes diet? Mom has some friends that are diabetic and they eat desserts sometimes, Mom doesn't say anything as it is not her place, but to eat a dessert and then to have to go take an insulin shot is mind boggling.

Guess what..Whole Foods in San Diego just got fined big time for being dishonest with their weighing practices. Mom has always said that their scales are off, sometimes she goes there and gets stuff from the salad bar, and it would always come out higher than Mom thinks it should be. Too bad they are not reimbursing customers, Mom figures they probably overcharged her hundreds of dollars!

Mom has made that spaghetti squash with tomato sauce, she likes it, but she does like pasta better. Mom is a real snob with Italian food and pasta, because she lived there and all. She will not eat at Pizza Hut or Olive Garden, or use canned tomato sauce or buy what they call Italian bread here. Mom is sure your Mom knows what she means!

Hugs and purrs,

How is Beaker's eye doing? I hope it is all better now.

Hello Strudel
What’s purring with you? Dr. William called Mommy yesterday with the results of my urine culture & sensitivity tests. Bad news - I have a UTI with the same bacteria that I had in March. It might never have gone completely away. I am older (15) so it takes longer for me to shake things off. Once a day for 6 weeks, I will be taking a different antibiotic that this bacteria is sensitive to. I do not act like I feel bad. In fact, I am the most active one at my house. (tee hee)

I started on my Baytril/Enrofloxacin 22.7 mg last night. 1 down, 29 more to go! Dr. William wants me to be on this med for 2 to 3 weeks, then do another urinalysis and culture. Please keep me & worried Mommy in your prayers. Yo know how our Moms worry about us.

Hi Strudel
Thanks for the paws up on the recipe, mom went to the website and printed it out. It looks like something she would like, and it is quick... she loves Thai food too. Many of the Chinese restaurants around here have closed and it is mostly Thai, Japanese or Vietnamese or what they call Asian Fusion.

Mom has replicated a recipe from a restaurant here that closed, it was called Pita Jungle and they were from Arizona. They opened a restaurant in her neighborhood and were open about a year but did not make it and they closed. Their food was good, but Mom thinks there were management problems. Mom loved their curried chicken salad. She knows you don't eat meat, but she thinks you can make it with tofu and maybe it would be something Dad will like. Mom will email it to you, (It is made with Greek Yoghurt, not mayo.) Mom only eats brown rice, she doesn't even like white anymore, but sometimes she is stuck with white in restaurants, when this is all they will offer. Did you see the black rice in Trader Joes? Mom bought some but doesn't really like it much. They have red rice in the Thai restaurant Mom likes, but she has not seen it in the stores, maybe they have it at the Asian markets. We have some huge Asian markets here but they are not real close by so Mom doesn't go often.

Sometimes TJ's runs out of the gazpacho cold soup here too, and they seem to only carry it in the summer.

Can't remember if we compared B & C values. Mom thinks I have benefitted enormously from the fluids, I am getting 150 every other day.

Mom is going to the San Diego fair today with some friends. The big fair food is a triple cheeseburger on Crispy Cream doughnuts, doesn't this sound sickening? They also have a bacon fest. Mom hopes there is something there she can eat,well..there will be charcoal grilled corn on the cob if nothing else. Hugs and purrs,

Hello Strudel
How was your weekend? Friday I visited Dr. William for my 3 month recheck. I got an excellent report.

My Schirmer eye test (to measure the dryness in my eyes caused by the herpes virus) was good - my right eye measured 15 and left eye was 13. I weighed almost 10 lbs. so my weight is staying steady, even with having the kidney disease.

The best news is that both my BUN & Creatinine levels are in the normal range:
BUN = 29 (was 32 in February)
Creat = 2.3 (was 2.2)

Dr. William did see some white cells in my urine, so he is sending it to the lab for sedimentation and culture & sensitivity tests. We should know those results late this week. While there, I also had my yearly physical and shots. What a day of poking & prodding! I will return in December for a 6 month recheck.

Have a lovely day.
Hugs,
Q MerryBelle

Hi Strudel!
We hope Beaker is feeling better and that his infection goes away!
Right now I am on every other day 150 ml(are they ml's..one and a half lines) My vet said if Mom thinks I need them every day to call her. I have a fountain and I love it and I drink lots of water which helps too. I am getting like Beaker though, in not liking the canned food. I will eat one type one night, and then the next night I won't like it. Sometimes there is a buffet on my placemat! Mom just bought some Natural Balance pouches, they are like the FF broths, and they were low protein so she is going to try that, she hopes I like it as Natural Balance is such a good product,much better than Fancy Feast. Mom says some of those Fancy Feasts come from Thailand and probably China, she saw on this on the boxes when she was in Petco yesterday.

Mom's mom was diabetic, she got it when she was pregnant with Mom, so Mom knows all about the diabetes diet issues. She worries because it is hereditary, and her mom died at age 47 with diabetes as a contributing factor. Mom watches her sugar intake, and tries to stay with brown and not white grains, but she was amazed at all the sugar in "healthy" foods. Mom gets stuck at work and has to bring her lunch, she can't leave to go out. So if she doesn't have left overs or a TJ's salad, she pops a lean cuisine in the microwave. These are supposed to be healthy but mom checked and some of them have 10 or 12 grams of sugar in them. They said in the movie that a woman should have only 25 grams a day. Then mom's "healthy" Special K cereal with strawberries has sugar too! Mom eats very little processed food, but now she is going to rethink the lunch and breakfast stuff, she will stick to plain oatmeal or grape nuts or wheaties as they have little sugar, and she is going to try to prepare stuff herself. But you know, this is difficult when she works all day and then goes to exercise a few times a week and does not get home until 7, there has to be ME time, and phone calls, and emails, etc. Oh, and the TJ salads have sugars too, but Mom thinks that is in the dressing. She usually only uses a teaspoon of their dressings and throws the rest out.

Mom loves those lentils too, she prefers them cold over warm. Mom will eat them with veggies and a little cheese, but she likes to mix them with that mango salsa and cilantro. Or the bruschetta...mom loves that bruschetta they have, the fresh one not the canned. Has your mom tried that? It is almost as good as the real stuff they had in Italy!
Hugs and purrs,

PS I hope you can come to my 19th birthday pawty on Sunday. We are going to have a surfing contest and a big barbeque on the beach.

Come visit me, ~*~Sabrina ~*~.
