Kathy wrote: a friend is active at an area shelter. Indie was returned twice not relating to him or his behavior. The second time he was returned, he would not eat and was losing his fur due to nerves. My friend asked if I would consider taking him and giving him a forever home. (They have me pegged down there. LOL!) I went to meet him and couldn't resist his big, beautiful blue eyes.

Indie was one of seven kitties adopted by Kathy Stepnick of Pittsburgh PA. When Kathy passed away April 2011, Indie & his older brother Kato came to live with Terri & Shadow through the love & efforts of many of the members of the CC Community.

Hey Indie!
Funny! But actually I think the Blackhawks are Indians not birds! (The Indian head on their jerseys) MOL. What a game! Tied at 4 and going to OT! Mom's heart can't take much more of this! Gotta win. Paws crossed we can beat the quackers! Nice sunny day. Since it got so cold outside for the past 3-4 days our apt is only 63*! During the winter Mom freaks out when it is that cold in here. It is very chilly. Mom put two blankets on her bed! But suppose to hit the 70's today and up to the 80's tomorrow & 92* on Tuesday! Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. Dean

Hey Indie!
You are very welcome. Glad we could help you celebrate your birthday. Our weather has been in the 60's and down into the 40's at night which is pretty cold for this time of year. Looks like Sunday will be back in the 80's. Keeps us guessing by jumping around so much. We did get a shower tonight. It didn't last very long but Mom figured she didn't need to water the garden. But looks like the lawn is in need of mowing again! Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. Dean

THANK YOU! THANK YOU ALL!
OUR CC FURRENDS ARE THE BEST AND ALWAYS BRING US THROUGH ALL THE HARD TIMES AND GOOD. KING BARNEY AND ALL OF US COULD NOT DO WITHOUT YOU. CC KITTIES AND PAWRENT FRIENDS. WE WANT TO THANK YOU FOR ALL OUR COTDS THIS YEAR, AS WE PROBABLY MISSED SEVERAL PEOPLE FOR HANDY ANDY'S AND MOLLY'S ESPECIALLY. WE WANT TO DEDICATE OUR COTD BADGES TO ALL SICK AND MISSING KITTIES AND PRAY FOR ALL TO RETURN HOME

PRAYERS STILL NEEDED:

STILL NO SIGN OF THE MISSING KITTY,BEING FOSTERED BY MOM'S RESCUE, JUST WORRIED IT GOT UP IN SOMEONE'S CAR ENGINE. THEY HAVE BEEN GOING BACK EVERY NIGHT AFTER THE STORE CLOSES AND PUTTING OUT LIVETRAPS AND SLEEPING IN THEIR CARS OR GOING BACK EARLY MORNING. THE STORE HAS EVEN GIVEN PERMISSION FOR A TRAP IN THERE STORAGE AREA, WHICH HAS A LOT OF OLD WOOD PALLETS STACKED UP. NEWS FLASH! THE PETCO MANAGER THINKS HE SAW THE KITTY! HE CALLED ITS NAME AND IT TURNED TO LOOK, BUT RAN OFF. WE DON'T EXPECT IT WILL COME TO A STRANGER, BUT IT GIVES HOPE IT IS STILL IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD. UPDATE--- THE MANAGER AT THE PETCO THINKS HE DID SEE IT IN A NEAR BY NEIGHBORHOOD, SO THERE IS STILL HOPE AND THE SEARCH CONTINUES.

A SECOND KITTY WENT MISSING THIS WEEKEND TOO, ONE THAT WAS ALSO SUPPOSED TO COME BE FOSTERED BY US. THIS WAS A BEAUTIFUL LILAC POINT SIAMESE AND THE LADY'S RENTER PURPOSELY OPENED THE BATHROOM WINDOW. HE HAS BEEN RENTING A ROOM IN HER HOUSE AND THEN SHE FOUND OUT HE WAS DOING DRUGS, SO HAS TO LEGALLY EVICT HIM. THE ONLY GOOD NEWS IS THAT THE CAT HAS BEEN NEUTERED AND IS OUT IN HIS OWN TERRITORY, SO NOT LIKELY TO TOTALLY DISAPPEAR.

Hello K Indie
How are you? We are doing ok. Our MerryBelle is back home where she belongs, in a beautiful onyx urn. You can see a pic on the bottom of her page. She came with a certified certificate that says she was INDIVIDUALLY cremated. We are glad because Mommy did not want her cremated with a group. Also, Dr. William’s office sent flowers & a pretty card and they made a nice Paw Print which Mommy will use as a Christmas ornament.

I am doing ok, but Casper Todd really misses his MerryBelle. She “mothered” Casper Todd when Mommy brought him home at just six weeks old. I still don’t like that boy. I would purrfer to be an only child!

Have a nice weekend.
Kisses,
Q Sissy

WELL, WE REALLY HAVE TO APOLOGIZE BECAUSE HEFTY'S COTD WAS ALMOST TWO WEEKS AGO! WE LOVE OUR CC FURRENDS SO MUCH AND DON'T KNOW WHAT WE WOULD DO WITHOUT THEM. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING. SEEMS LIKE ONE THING AFTER ANOTHER CAME UP, BUT THAT IS NO EXCUSE. OUR GOOD NEWS IS THAT OUR FOSTER SIS SWEETIE, WHO MANY OF YOU KNOW FROM FB, HAS FOUND A FOREVER HOME. AN OLDER LADY, BUT NOT RETIRED LIKE MOM, BUT WITH ONE OTHER KITTY, 2 DOGS AND A HORSE. KITTIES ARE INDOOR ONLY THOUGH. MOM WILL BE CHECKING, BUT FELT REALLY GOOD ABOUT THE MATCH. SOON WE MAY BE HAVING A NEW SIB, BUT FOR NOW ALL IS QUIET.

What’s mew with you? It’s Wednesday so you know what that means - our cleaning lady Mrs. Maryann is here this afternoon. As usual, I am hiding out upstairs in my hammock in the scrapbook room. I do not like to watch her work!

Hello K Indie
How are you? I seem to feel ok, although I don’t eat much and I mostly hide under the bed (which makes Mommy very sad). Every time I come out, I get poked with fluids or that nasty antibiotic pill for my UTI. Only 1 more day of that pill, thank goodness. Today was fluids day & that went well.

Tomorrow I have an appointment with Dr. William. He will do bloodwork to recheck my BUN, Creatinine & PCV levels, which tell the progress of my Chronic Renal Failure. Please keep your paws crossed for only good mews! We plan to leave an update blog about my vet visit on CMR tomorrow. Thanks for your continued prayers.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Q MerryBelle

Love heals ...
... both the ones who give it
and the ones who receive it!

Today, I share my page again with my fursib, Yak.

Mom posted her photo on my profile pic as she truly deserves to be on the spotlight. Isn't she a beauty. Come check her out.

Yak is approximately 6-7 years old. When Mom found her she was a mature kitty of about over a year old in 2010 and believed to have already had a litter of her own. Among all the rescue babies, Yak and her other fursib Bait (also FIV+), frequent the vet most times due to their condition. Yak has undergone ...

three major surgery,
has had chronic bouts of inflammation,
has had frequent steroid treatment,
has had chronic skin and eye problems,
has had UTI
and some other minor issues.

But look at our sweet girl now...
Yak has gone a long way and is now living a sweet, healthy and blessed life.

xoxo

Come visit me, Hami.

Hello K Indie
Thank you all for your continued prayers for me & Mommy. We want to share our good mews with you.

I visted Dr. William this morning. I am doing well. I gained 2 ounces in a week. I weigh 8 lbs, 6 oz. I am eating, drinking water, going potty and grooming. I even play some too. William said these are all really good signs. My BUN & Creatinine levels both decreased since last week. Today my BUN = 46 (was 50) and Creat = 4.3 (was 4.4). William said these are probably my "new normal" levels. My PCV (Packed Cell Volume) is 40 which is very good. When it gets 30 that means I am anemic which is something CRF kitties usually have to deal with.

I got 200 cc sub-q fluids today. William said for now, here is the plan:

every Wednesday morning I will get 200 cc sub-q fluids
every other Wednesday I will have bloodwork to check the BUN & Creatinine levels, hoping they are stable.

If there are any changes with my eating habits or anything else, we will do bloodwork. But for right now, that is the plan. Mommy is very pleased. I am such a good girl, on the long ride (30 miles each way) and at the vet's.

Thanks for your continued prayers. Your furiendship is much appreciated.

Here's wishing you & your family a happy & healthy 2015.
Hugs,
Q MerryBelle & Mommy Angela

Hello K Indie
Mommy & I both thank you for your prayers. We did not receive good mews concerning my bloodwork today. Even after having 200 cc of sub-q fluids on Thursday and again on Caturday, my levels did not go down very much. Today my BUN = 43 (was 49 Thursday) and Creatinine = 4.1 (was 4.2). Dr. William said we have to be more aggressive in my treatment, so I am staying at Doc’s for continuous, 24 hour IV fluids. He will do another BUN & Creat recheck tomorrow morning. And we will go from there.

As you can imagine, Mommy is very upset & worried even though she knows that I am where I need to be & that I am getting the best care & proper treatment. We both would appreciate your continued prayers.

Hugs,
Q MerryBelle & Mommy Angela

KELSEES KAT REMEDIES
Good afternoon! Today's topic is CLAW PROBLEMS. Suggested by A MALACHI

TRIM THEM OFTEN: To prevent claws from getting too long and causing problems, they should be trimmed every 6-8 weeks. If your pet doesn't go outside{and on a sidewalk} more clipping may be necessary.

HOW TO TRIM FOR CATS: Press gently on cats paw to force the nails out with your thumb on top and hand holding the paw.
ONLY remove the sharp tip of the nail. DO NOT cut into the quick.

START THEM YOUNG: You should teach a kitten{or puppy} early on to sit still to have her nails trimmed. DO NOT lunge at her, however. To help your pet get used to the idea of pedicures, spend some time touching her paws before you start clipping. Once she is used to having her paws handled, she'll be less likely to rebel when you bring out the clippers.

TREAT THEM LIKE JEWELS: If your pet won't sit still for the clippers, maybe he will do better if you use a jewelers file. Just file and take off a short bit at a time. Jeweler's files can be purchased at Hardware stores.

WORK IN SHIFTS: When your pet is nervous, many vets recommend just clipping 1 paw per day. You do not need to do the all 4 paws at once. There is nothing wrong with stealth, cunning and patience.

REACH FOR THE SHAVING KIT: Many nail injuries occur when owners cut to close to the 'quick'. To staunch the bleeding, run the cut claw with a stypic pencil or a coagulant powder.
Another way to stop bleeding is to dip your pets paw in flour.

PROTECT WITH A CLEANING: If your cat has recently torn or cracked a nail and it is bleeding or in pain, you will want to clean the nail well to prevent infection from setting in. Wash the area well with soap and warm water, then gently towel dry and apply a small dab of antibacterial ointment.
If the bleeding does not stop, seek Veterinary assistance immediately.

TOMORROW: The aging cat!

Hi K Indie
How was your weekend? Ours was pawsome! The Great Pumpkin came to our house Friday night and brought us mew toys for Halloween. I like the pumpkinman on a string toy. Caturday was chilly & windy. After having 80 degrees all week, it turned downright cold with 54 degrees for our high and 32 for our low on Caturday. Brrrr! Our Nana attended her 55th high school reunion (Class of 1959) Caturday. Nana always carries a photo album of us in her purse. She said everyone oohed & aahed over her beautiful grandkitties. Of course they did!

Enjoy a meowy Monday.

Hi K Indie
What’s purring with you today? I am having a super busy day. This morning I supervised the water delivery guy. Then I visited with Mr. UPS guy, who insulted me by saying that I am huge. I would not say that to him, but I could! Now this afternoon the cabana boys are mowing our grass & cleaning the pool. I am watching them from my windowseat. This supervising is hard work! I think I need a nap.

Hi K Indie
Oh Happy Day!!!! CC is FINALLY back. Last week we went through CC withdrawal. I’m sure you feel the same way.

What’s mew with you? I was sicky with a nasty hairball. But thankfully I am all better now. My sisters have been doing their usual stuff, mostly ignoring me. Shame on them! Mommy & Nana had their 6 month dental cleanings & checkups Friday. Glad it was them and not me!

We watched football games this weekend. Our Saints had a bye week. Two Mississippi colleges are ranked in the Top Three in the nation – MS State is #1 and Ole Miss #3. Although we are happy, we are actually Southern Miss fans.

It is still almost 90 degrees here. The weather forecast for this afternoon & tonight is scary – lots of heavy rain, 60-70 mph winds, hail & possible tornadoes. We are not looking forward to that. I better go hide!

Purrs to you,
K Casper Todd

Hello K Indie
In honor of World Cat Day, we would like to share the following article with you from http://www.sparklecat.com/special/world-cat-day-hu- mans:

Since it is World Cat Day, you are probably wondering why I am directing today’s post to you humans. Simple. I want to make sure that you know what to do for your cats today. After all, this is a holiday, just like Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, and certain things are required. But we cats can’t trust you humans to get it right without help. So I thought I would be nice and helpful by suggesting a few things you can do to honor your cats on this very important holiday:

✿ Begin the day by serving breakfast in bed to your cat. In your bed, of course. But don’t bring her plain, old kibble or canned cat food. Make it a gourmet feast — finely chopped chicken served in a cut glass bowl, or poached salmon with a couple of crickets as a tasty garnish served on fine china would be a simple but classy choice.

✿ We cats are not big on cards. We would much prefer gifts. What’s important here is the wrapping paper. Make sure you get extra-crinkly paper. Also make sure your gift requires a lot of it. If the World Cat Day presents you choose are small (which is perfectly acceptable — even kitties realize that “good things sometimes come in small packages”), then put them in big boxes so you have sufficient wrapping paper for playing in — plus the box serves as a bonus toy!

✿ But just because we cats love wrapping paper, don’t skimp on the gifts. Hopefully you have been paying attention and you know which kind of toys your cat likes best. A cat tree would be great if you want to splurge… but you still have to wrap it up.

✿ Since this is such a special day, if you are going to get your cat treats as a present, get really special treats — real, freeze-dried meat, or maybe even fresh chicken or grilled salmon. If the treats are fresh, you don’t have to wrap them, but if they come in a package, the wrapping paper is de rigueur. I would suggest that you go out and catch some field mice or trap some moths or beetles, but that is probably beyond most humans.

✿ Most importantly, here is the one thing your cats really want from you on World Cat Day: your time. Take time to play with your cats today. Don’t just toss a toy around for a couple of minutes. Make it a quality play session, and let your cat decide when she has had enough. If your cat is more of a couch potato, then let her doze on top of you without fidgeting, talking on the phone, or moving her because some body part of yours has fallen asleep. This will show your cat how much she really means to you, and that you really understand her needs. The more respect and regard you have for your cat, the more you will get in return. Or maybe not, but what did you expect?!

I think these are all purrrfect suggestions! Happy World Cat Day.
Hugs,
Q MerryBelle

Hello K Indie
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. How is your sweet Mom's eye? We hope it is healing.

Hello K Indie
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.

How’s your day going? Let me tell you about my horrible day. MOM (that would be Mean Ole Mommy) put that nasty ole stinky flea stuff on my pretty little back this morning. Soooo not fair! I don’t think she would like that greasy goop on her, do you?

Hope your day is better than mine.
With Smelly Kisses,
Q Sissy

Hello K Indie
It's nice to hear from you. Congrats on the wonderful checked & the weight loss.

How was your weekend? We had a meowvelous time. For Mother’s Day, we gave Mommy a cute card and a Dooney & Bourke Chicago Cubs hobo handbag. We gave Nana a pretty pink with black cats cardigan and a card that said she was “sweeter-than-a-banana Nana”. They both loved their gifts and said we are purrrfect shoppers! We hope your Mom enjoyed a purrrfect day too.

Have a lovely day.
Kisses,
Q Sissy

Hello K Indie
What’s mew with you? After surviving two stormy days & nights here in Mississippi, we are enjoying a beautiful sunshiny day today. Thankfully we are safe but so many were not so lucky. So far there are 12 confirmed deaths, several people still missing and much destruction from the numerous tornadoes that hit MS Monday & Tuesday. The bad stuff went north and east of us. One tornado hit Tupelo (Elvis's birthplace), another hit in Louisville and there were several tornadoes that hit around Jackson - in Pearl and in Brandon. The devastation looks horrible on the news.

Stay safe everyone. We are keeping those affected by these monster storms in our thoughts and prayers.

Have a blessed day ✞
Hugs,
Q MerryBelle

Hi K Indie
How was your Easter? Ours was super! The Easter Bunny came to my house. He brought me just what I wanted - a hexbug aquabot smart fish with its own bowl. I named him Goldie. You can see him in my profile pic & on the bottom of my page. The Bunny brought my sisters stuff too – MerryBelle got more of the mew Fancy Feast broth pouches and Sissy got a cosmic catnip caterpillar toy.

Hope your Easter was as blessed as ours✞
Purrs to you,
K Casper Todd

P.S. Thank you for the cute Easter card you sent to us. We hope that our card arrived in time.

Hi K Indie
Today is National Pet Day. I sure hope that Mommy will get me a pet. Maybe a bunny. Or maybe one of those mew hexbug Aquabots. Have you seen those? They are little robotic fish & sharks that run on batteries & really do swim in water. (They are real kid’s toys.) Mommy & Nana are going shopping tomorrow so hopefully they will get me a pet.

Happy National Pet Day!
Purrs to you,
K Casper Todd

Hello K Indie
What’s mew with you? I am counting down the days that I have left to take that nasty antibiotic pill. I’m over ½ ways through with my meds for the bacterial UTI. 12 days down, only 9 more to go! Woo hoo!

We received the email from CC Moderator Crystal saying that the switchover date for Cat Channel has been taken off their schedule. Another reprieve, so we get to enjoy blogging with our furiends for awhile longer. May CC live on!

Tonight we are supposed to receive severe thunderstorms with large hail, damaging wind gusts & isolated tornadoes. We are not looking forward to that, but such is springtime in the Deep South.

Stay safe & have a lovely weekend.
Hugs,
Q MerryBelle

Angel Misty's Story...
The other newcomer that I mentioned yesterday was my sister Gypsy. And boy did she ever make an entrance. As I had said, we now lived by a busy two lane highway so someone must have just dropped her off by our home. One day we heard a commotion outside and there she was, meowing very loudly by our door. Mom felt so bad but also knew that we couldn't take in another kitty, there wasn't any more room in the apartment. She just hoped that the kitty would move on to another home but no such luck. Mom went to work and when she came home the kitty was still there. Mom finally broke down and gave her something to eat. Well, that did it, the next morning Gypsy managed to crawl on to the roof of the downstairs apartment porch and she was screaming at our kitchen window. Blinky was sitting on the condo looking at Gypsy and was screaming too. Mom knew that something had to be done and so she talked to our future Dad and guess what, he took Gypsy home with him. Mom called our Vet and made an appointment to get her checked over and spayed and as they say, the rest was history. All of the pieces were falling in place. Now, all we had to do was get Mom remarried and we could all live happily ever after. Mom decided that Gypsy was an appropriate name for a kitty who came from no where, just like a little vagabond. Hehehe.!!! Have a great day my friends and thank-you for supporting my ACOTD Catpaign. Purrs of love, Angel Misty.. Ps: I hope that your dental procedure went well. I have been keeping you in my prayers..

Come visit me, Mittens. Welcome to Summer-Time..., Q. Angel Misty. I love Summer..., Minuette. Summer Fun..., Greycee Mist. I see butterflies.. & Gypsy: It's Summer-Time...
