How We Met

She kept coming to visit us all summer long, she loves our dog Shadow. I would be out walking Shadow and all of a sudden Dot would be there!!! But what really cinched the deal was helping her dad work on the tractor one day, I think he found her irresistable!! She was very sick when she came to us. She had an URI after about 2 months of Antibiotics she was better and could finally meet Tucker & Mouse. Tucker & Dot are the best of Buddy's , Dot and Mouse are still working on it.

Hi Dame Dot and family!
This morning was the first day in over a month that I did NOT have to have any doses of antibiotics. Hooray! Set off the fireworks! Okay, we have more important things to celebrate tomorrow on Independence Day!

Have a wonderful 4th of July holiday, but remember - unlike people, pets don’t associate the noise, flashes, and burning smell of pyrotechnics with celebrations. Pets are terrified of fireworks, and often panic at the loud whizzes and bangs they produce.

Did you know July 5th is the busiest day of the year for animal shelters? Yup! The day after the 4th of July, animal shelters are inundated with pets that panicked at the noise of firecrackers and fled into the night, winding up lost, injured or killed.

CC pawrents know all this, but maybe they can remind their friends. With a little thought, they can prevent the holiday celebration from turning into a tragedy.

We hope your family has a nice 4th of July. We know it will be sad, but most cats and dogs aren't big fans of that holiday. My pawrents will turn up the music in the house, turn down the sound on the TV and we can all watch the fierworks on TV from around the U.S. Be safe dear furiends.

We left a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

Hi Dame Dot and family
Oh sweetie, we are so happy your dear Mom got our gift. We know how much your family is grieving for sweet Angel Shadow. We hope when your Mom puts Shadow's photo in the frame, someday she'll be able to look at it and smile. Give her a soft kitty hug for us - and no biting this time! Hee, hee, hee! We know you are just giving your Mom love bites! Your family is in our prayers dear furiend.

Good mews! Today is the last day that I have to take my medicines. Well, this evening will be the last. And now I get a whole month without that awful stuff. My Mom is already worrying about a month from now when I get my urine retested, but we’re hoping with my new prescription food diet that everything will be fine. Thanks again for all your get well wishes and prayers. CC furiends are the best medicine!

Last night there was a ruckus in our front yard. My Mom ran outside when she heard a dog barking and kids yelling. Two small boys had dropped the leash on their dog and the dog was on the side of our house, barking at the cathouse that my Mom keeps out there. (It used to be for Ebony and Sugar Bear.) The door to the cathouse is a round hole, much too small for most dogs. My Mom grabbed the dog’s leash and pulled him away from the cathouse. The two boys, whose Dad had come by now, were glad to have their dog back. They said he had chased a cat into the cathouse!

SO after they left, Mom peeked inside the cathouse and saw a frightened cat inside! She ran to get a cat carrier and Dad for help. With gloves on, Mom grabbed the gray tabby cat as Dad lifted up the roof, putting him in the cat carrier. Luckily the cat was wearing a collar! Whew. It took a while, but Mom was finally able to pick the little guy up so she could read his tag. His name was Cheeters and he lived nearby. Mom drove him home. Cheeters is an indoor/outdoor cat, but after this, the family is rethinking that!

Dad wanted to move the cathouse into our backyard, but Mom said no. That cathouse has been a safe house for several cats now!

Daer Dame Dot and family
We are so glad to hear you are keeping a close eye on your sweet Mom during this very sorrowful time. You are such a good kitty. I asked my Mom to check if the small gift my sisters and I sent to your family has been shipped. The company is "Furry Angel" and they are very kind. They told my Mom part of of what she ordered was on back order, but they sent out part of it so as not to delay it. We just want to put a smile on your dear Mom's face. We hope it comes soon. We have your family in our constant prayers. No need to blog back dear furiend. Just take care of your family.

This morning our pawrents took Callie and me for a walk in our stroller. It was 5 a.m. and already 63 degrees outside. We took water to fill up the bucket by the dry creek and scattered some birdseed along the trail. Our high today is supposed to be 99 degrees, but we are already at 98 and the hottest time of the day is still to come. We don’t have any fires near our house, but we can smell the smoke in the air from a fire burning to the south of us. We have our furiends in the state of Washington in our prayers. The news shows there are some bad fires burning up there. So scary and so sad.:(

My Mom has assured me my last dose of medicines will be tomorrow morning. Whoo hoo! I’m counting down the hours!

My Mom had to report to jury duty this morning, but only had to stay for a couple of hours before she was told to go home. At least the court validated her parking. MOL!

We did attend King Monty’s Coronation for a while this morning. It was beautiful as always. All our CC furiends looked spectacular and the Castle buffet was delicious. Cat Channel is still alive and strong as ever!

We hope your Mom enjoys her 3 day weekend! Give her lots of hugs and purr therapy. Oh, we almost forgot! We love your beautiful 4th of July profile picture! You are adorable!

We hope you are all staying cool on this last day of June. We are in the mid 90’s today and hotter tomorrow before it cools down. We are hoping no one is crazy enough to set off fireworks for the 4th of July holiday.

I’m still taking my antibiotics until Thursday evening and then I get a reprieve. My Mom went to the vet to pick up more prescription cat food today. The vet said she won’t schedule my urine re-test until 30 days after I finish this last batch of medicines. Hooray! Hopefully by then I’ll be a healthy cat again!

Dearest Dame Dot and family
We are so sorry to hear sweet Shadow will be an angel soon. What a wonderful life she had, filled with so much love. We'll be lighting a prayer candle for her today and your precious family. We wish we could give comforting hugs to all of you. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Her Journey's Just Begun
~~~~~
Don't think of her
as gone away-
her journey has just begun.
Life holds many facets,
the Earth is only one.

Just think of her
as resting from
the sorrows and the tears,
in a place of
warmth and comfort
where there are
no days and years.

Think how
she must be wishing
that we could know today,
how nothing
but our sadness
can really pass away.

And think of her
as living
in the hearts
of those she touched,
For nothing loved
is ever lost-
And she was loved
so much.

Hi Dame Dot and family!
Yesterday as we were waiting for my tests results, the vet’s office called and told my Mom she needed to bring me to the vet. The doctor wanted to talk with my Mom. :( I need to take 7 more days of both antibiotics and while I was there, the vet gave me an injection of antibiotics . My test results were better, but the red blood cell count was still too high. What should read as negative, is now 10-15. Two weeks ago this reading was 75-100. The vet said that bacteria could have settled in my bladder and was only just discovered when my Mom brought me in for preliminary tests before having my teeth cleaned. Having my teeth cleaned is on the back burner now. The vet did say she felt confident the antibiotics are working, so at this point she doesn't feel x-rays are needed of my bladder- which was the next plan of action. She had been worried there might be bladder crystals or some obstruction in my bladder, which would require surgery.

I took my medicines this morning like a champ. I get one at 6:30 a.m. and then wait an hour for the second one. This seems to work best. (Heavy sigh!)

We were heartbroken to learn this morning that K. Mike’s Dad passed away suddenly. Our hearts and prayers are with his dear Mom Teresa and the family. May God watch over this very special and precious family.

We have your dear family always in our prayers sweetie.

Hi Dot!
You have no concept of "never a dull moment" until you spend a weekend with Sniff and Bee Gee! This place would be almost like a morgue if it weren't for those two! Some of us put in our two cents worth now and then (not me, NEVER me! MOL!), and even the dogs raise a little hell once in awhile, but Bee Gee and Sniff have created their own little purgatory for the rest of us. :-)

Okay, we need to let you all know we won't be replying to blogs much for about the next ten days, starting tomorrow. We are going into a major heat wave, the temperatures have even been UP-graded, to between 104 and 112 degrees! So we are going to be lying low, maybe in a cool mud puddle somewhere, until this burns itself out. Haha? Hope our mud puddle doesn't dry up with us in it! Yikes!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
I finally finished all my antibiotics yesterday and today I went back to the vet for a urine re-test. I know my Mom is praying for good results. My sisters and I have our paws crossed. We should know the results tomorrow. My Mom stayed at the vet with me until I gave my urine sample. The vet says I have a bladder made of steel! I lost some more weight... I’m down to 10.5 pounds. (I started out at 14.5 pounds. Not sure if this new prescription diet will pack on the pounds!) The vet said this weight is fine. I guess my Mom is used to having cats with a some cushion!

This morning when my Mom put me in my cat carrier, I didn’t even put a fight. I think that worried my Mom more than when I do put up a fight! We can never please these silly humans. MOL!

Callie, Whitey and Orangie are doing fine. The weather has been hot- in the nineties- so we’ve all been staying inside where it’s cool. We hope our lives get back to normal soon.:)

Drat! We missed pawing the big 3,000 votey for you! Now we have our sights set on the bigger 4,000! We hope your family is doing well sweetie. Give them and Shadow hugs for us. We always have your family in our prayers.

Hi Dot!
Wow! Great to hear from you! Sounds like you're having fun. Keeping mom guessing. That's always great for a few laughs! Not much happening around here these days. Just getting ready for a few Fry-days! Starting Friday we are looking at about 106 to 111 for ten days! And we are not pleased. No a/c! Mom is SUCH a tightwad! So you may not be hearing from us for awhile. 'Cept Bee Gee at golf. And she's welcome to it! Nut cases running around in hellish heat chasing a little ball with a stick. Get OUT of here! As for me, I just keep seeking out the coolest spots to lay in. Creature of comfort, that's me!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
It’s going to be another hot day in the mid 90’s. My Mom and Dad took Callie and me for an early morning walk in our cat stroller, while it was still cool outside. We took water for the bucket by the creek and scattered birdseed for the birdies.

This is Day 11 of my medicine ritual. I’ve been trying to hold the medicine in my mouth just long enough to spit it out, but my Mom hasn’t fallen for that trick yet. She holds my mouth and blows softly at my nose. I have no choice but to swallow. Drat!

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend with your family. Thanks so much for all your happy thoughts and prayers. It means the world to us!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
After taking a closer look at the medicines for my UTI, I’m happy to report I’m over halfway done. This is Day 9 and it looks like I might be finished by Sunday or Monday. Whew! This morning I growled at my Mom when it was time for my first dose. But instead of getting scared or angry with me, my Mom cuddled me for a while before giving me the awful tasting stuff. Thank so much for all your get-well wishes. What would I ever do without my CC furiends?!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
This morning was very foggy, but the temperature was a nice 57 degrees. My Mom decided to take Callie and me on a short stroller walk to fill the water buckets by the creek, before giving me my meds. Today is the 7th day of taking my antibiotics. This morning wasn’t too bad. I let my Mom hold me after it was all over and I fell asleep on her lap. My fursisters laid by my Mom’s feet, as if watching over me. My sisters are as wonderful as my CC furiends!

My Mom’s sister from San Diego came to visit yesterday and left early this morning. She has business in Napa today and could only stay for a day. All of us kitties like our Aunt Doris because she has a nice, quiet voice and she loves cats. Aunt Doris lives with our GM in San Diego and she has two cats of her own. That makes her a-okay in our book!

Thanks for your prayers dear furiend. We have your precious family in our prayers too.

Hi Dame Dot and family!
I apologize for my cut and paste today. It’s Day 5 of my medicine ritual. This morning I got very nauseous, but it wasn’t until several hours after taking my medicine, so that’s good according to my Mom. At least I kept my morning meds down. Since then, I’ve been sleeping on Mom’s lap getting lots of love.:)

Last night my antibiotics went down just fine and we were all happy. I even played with some of my cat toys downstairs. For some reason the mornings are harder on me when taking my meds.

I want to thank my CC furiends for their prayers and get well wishes. It has helped tremendously!

When I was young, on the carpet I wee'd,
I spent all my Sundays getting de-flea'd.

The sofa was always my best scratching post,
and my favourite food was the scraps from the roast.

As I grew up I found all sorts of places to loll,
but the best was always my Mum's fruit bowl.

Now I am bigger and know the house rules,
I make sure I do all this when they are out... the fools!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
I made it to Day 4 of my twice a day medicine ritual. Well, it was twice a day, but my Mom got the okay from the vet to split my two morning meds. I get one syringe-ful at 6:30 a.m. and the second one an hour later. I can swallow one dose a lot better than two at once.

We’ll do this all over again for my nighttime meds. I just realized that is a total of 4 times I’ll have to be held down and tortured! MOL! I forgave my Mom a lot quicker doing it this way.

The weather is still hot with a high of 98 degrees today. We were supposed to cool down a few degrees today! We are fine as long as the A/C is on.

After taking my medicine, I like to hide under the bed. Mom made chicken broth just for me and I lapped it up after the awful tasting medicine. And yes, I have been eating my new C/D Prescription cat food like a good boy.:)

I know my Mom is very worried about me, but I’m trying my best to be cooperative. All the prayers and get well wishes from my CC furiends has meant a lot to us.

Furry body all a quiver,
Whiskers straight and in a shiver,
Ears are picking up every sound,
Watch out now there's a mouse around!

Eyes aglow with anticipation,
Black as coal in trepidation,
Can I catch it? Can it run?
No, it's a toy, but I can still have fun!

I toss it here and I toss it there,
That old grey mouse flies through the air,
Tired of the game I lie and ponder,
Will it be real one day I wonder!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
This is my third day on my antibiotics and it doesn’t seem to get any easier. (Not that I thought it would, but hey, I can hope!) I seem to be okay after taking the first antibiotic, but the second one is when I go ballistic. My Mom has a call in to the vet to see if I can take one medicine, wait an hour, than take the second one. That just might work better. (Heavy sigh!) Thanks for all your prayers and get well wishes. That really is the best medicine!

It’s very hot here today with temps in the 90’s. We have the A/C on, so we are all staying cool. My Mom took water down to the creek to fill the buckets, but no cat stroller walk for us this morning. After Mom and Dad gave me my medicine, my sisters and I were hiding. Maybe tomorrow will be better.:)

This Old Cat =^.^=
~~~~~
I'm getting on in years,
My coat is turning gray.
My eyes have lost their luster,
My hearing's just okay.
I spend my day dreaming
Of conquests in my past,
Lying near a sunny window
Waiting for its warm repast.

I remember our first visit,
I was coming to you free,
Hoping you would take me in
And keep me company.
I wasn't young or handsome,
Two years I'd roamed the street.
There were scars upon my face,
I hobbled on my feet.

I could sense your disappointment
As I left my prison cage.
Oh, I hoped you would accept me
And look beyond my age.
You took me out of pity,
I accepted without shame.
Then you grew to love me,
And I admit the same.

I have shared with you your laughter,
You have wet my fur with tears.
We've come to know each other
Throughout these many years.
Just one more hug this morning
Before you drive away,
And know I'll think about you
Throughout your busy day.

The time we've left together
Is a treasured time at that.
My heart is yours forever.
I Promise - This old cat.

Hi Dame Dot and family!
Well, Day 1 of my medicine is over and now on to Day 2. I wish I could say it was going well, but I’d be fibbing. I’m having a tough time swallowing both medicines.
This morning I hissed and spit at my Dad and I’m afraid I scared him a little bit. But Mom hung on to me and calmed Dad back down. When it was all over, Mom held me for a while, cleaned up my fur because I was drooling and Mom sang to me.

This morning Mom went back to the vet telling the doctor of the difficulty I’m having taking my meds. I seemed to have lost my appetite too. The vet gave Mom some pointers on how best to administer my medicines, giving me a 10 minute break in between. The vet also had some different flavors of the prescription food for me to try. One is a stew. Mom opened a can when she got home and I ate it up. Whew! What a relief for my Mom and me. MOL!

Luckily, all three of my sisters like the new C/D canned prescription food AND they all like the C/D dry food. Callie, Whitey and Orangie hide when I get my medicine, but they come out afterwards to sniff me and Callie even gave my head a tongue bath! I love my fursisters!

Give your dear family and sweet Shadow big hugs for us. We always have your precious family in our prayers.

Hi Dame Dot and family!
My (Whiskers) urine test results were not good at all. My Red Blood Count went up from 6-10 to a whopping 75-100! (Normal should be 0-5.) The vet prescribed two strong liquid antibiotics, both to be administered at the same time every 12 hours. The vet stressed to my Mom the importance of making sure I swallow the full doses and to watch me afterwards for any vomiting. My Mom filled the syringes with the antibiotics and mixed it with a small amount of blended cat food, to make it palatable. Mom had to ask Dad for help holding me. Normally I get upset when my Dad gets too close, but right now the medicine has me more upset. I even let my Mom hold me in her lap afterwards. Keep your paws crossed that this works.

In the meantime, we are all eating our new Urinary Care Cat Food. Mom is blending it half and half with our regular food until we get used to it. Needless to say, none of us kitties are very happy with our Mom.:(

Our weather is cloudy and very humid. It even drizzled a little bit this morning. The plants were happy.

We have precious Shadow and your dear family in our prayers sweetie. Give them all soft kitty hugs for us.

Hi Dame Dot and family!
I spent most of the day at the vet today, trying to give a urine sample. I can never seem to relax at that noisy place! We won’t get the results until tomorrow, but the vet didn’t like how cloudy my urine sample looked. Dr. Natt gave me another penicillin injection and she’ll talk with my Mom tomorrow about what the next course of action will be. I also lost a half of pound, but it could be from the stress of taking the antibiotics. Needless to say, my Mom is very worried. :(

We have sweet Shadow and your precious family in our prayers dear furiend. May God bless and watch over your dear family.

Hi Sweet Dot!
It's good to hear from you, dear furriend. We didn't want to give you extra sadness; your mom has her hands full with what's going on in your house. But Emmi's blood count got too low to give her any more Chemo treatments.....she got a almost two weeks of goodbyes after that, but has crossed now. The family was very sad. Mom and sis didn't wait long after....there was a big adoption event Saturday. Mom and sis could NOT agree on a pup then dad came walking up with a little dude on a leash and said I like this one. Dad thought it was too soon but Mom felt the pack was out of balance and we had some extra love to share with a homeless drooler. He seems like a nice fella, he met me and didn't act like I was something to chase. Mom liked that.

We are holding Shadow in our hearts as she travels the path toward the last goodbyes. It is heartbreaking. Mom says Shadow is an extraordinary doggie and she feels sad thinking what your mom must be going through. Bless Shadow's puppy dog heart and we hope and pray she is comfortable and not hurty.

Have a peaceful evening! Big hugs!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
We finally have good mews to report! My sister Callie’s urinalysis report came back good! Whoo hoo! Not purrfect - in the blood column where it should read negative, Callies reads “TRACE.” The vet said that’s good enough, so no more medicine for Callie. The bad news is we all have to cut down on eating treats. Callie and I will be transitioning to eating prescription canned food and dry food only. (Hills Prescription Diet Urinary Care C/D). The vet said it might be a good idea for Whitey and Orangie too. Mom will be taking them for an exam in July.

My teeth cleaning has been postponed until after I finish my antibiotics and hopefully get a clean bill of health like Callie. I’m hoping my Mom will give me a couple of weeks to recover from this awful medicine!

We're keeping sweet Shadow and your family in our thoughts and prayers. Give your Mom and Dad soft hugs for us sweet furiend.

Hi Dame Dot and family!
First of all, let me apologize for my blogger skipping out on some of my meow blogs to my furiends. My Mom has been a little overwhelmed with giving both Callie and me our medicine, taking us to the vet and keeping her own doctor appointments. We’ll all be glad when our house is back to normal.

So this morning Mom took my sister Callie back to the vet for her urine re-test. We have our paws crossed she gets a clean bill of health this time. We won’t know the results until tomorrow. My Mom sat at the vet with Callie for several hours reading to her while waiting for her to give a urine sample. The good mews is I should be done with my antibiotics in a couple of days. Callie and I have become very creative at hiding from our Mom when we know it’s time for our medicine. We are not happy with Mom at all!

We were all very heartbroken to hear our dear furiend Queen Duchess became an Angel yesterday. We take solace in knowing she had a long life filled with a loving and caring family; the kind of life every kitty wishes for. Our thoughts and prayers are with Angel Queen Duchess’ precious family.

We always have your dear family in our prayers sweetie. We just read your message to us and we are so very sad to hear sweet Shadow is not doing well. We always have her in our prayers. Shadow is a very lucky doggie to have such a wonderful family. We understand what a difficult time this is for your family. Give them all our love. God bless your precious family.

I know that you can’t see me,

Although I’m up in Heaven,
my love for you stays near.

So often I see you crying,
many times you call my name.
I want so much to lick your face
and ease some of your pain.

I wish that I could make you see
that Heaven indeed is real.
If you could see me run and play
how much better you would feel.

But our loving God has promised me
that when the time is right,
you’ll step out of the darkness and
meet me in the light.

Hi Dame Dot and family!
Our furiend next door, Ebony, went back to the vet this morning and his Upper Respiratory Infection is under control. Yay! Next, my fursister Callie has a re-check at the vet on Wednesday. I’m still taking my medicine for my Urinary Tract Infection and I’m halfway through the yucky stuff!

My Mom took Callie and me on our cat stroller walk this morning. It was foggy outside, but not chilly at all. We filled the water bucket up by the dry creek and said meow to the peacocks who where grazing in their own yard for a change.

We have you, sweet Shadow and your family in our thoughts and prayers sweetie!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
We’re pawing by with a quick meow because Mom is running way behind. The good mews is my Mom saw her Ear, Nose, Throat doctor and she can get back to life as normal (after her sinus infection). Whatever that means - but one thing for sure is - our cat stroller walks will commence tomorrow!

The not so good mews is my urine test results showed an improvement, but not quite where the numbers should be. I got a penicillin injection and was sent home with 10 more days of liquid antibiotics. My lab results look promising on paper so the vet is keeping me on the same meds. I still don’t like taking medicine, but I’m becoming a lot more tolerant of my Mom. MOL!

We have you and your precious family in our prayers dear furiend. Give everyone big hugs for us! Tell sweet Shadow we said meow.

Each morning I awake,
my best friend beside me,
his eyes are wide with love,

When nighttime descends on us,
and the world is through with me,
at last I can meditate,
and give loving thanks for him.

My friend is very special,
a truly amazing soul,
he's very soft and gentle,
for he's my cat, after all!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
It was back to the vet for me this morning, since my Mom tried, but failed to get a urine sample from me. Mom thinks after 4 hours locked in a room, waiting for a urine sample, is long enough. At least at the vet I get a diuretic to help me, although it still took a couple of hours. I should enter some bladder-holding contest. MOL! Now we wait for the results.

My sister Callie is half way through her bottle of antibiotics, so she can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Ebony is doing well with his Upper Respiratory Infection and is scheduled to go back to the vet for a re-check the first week of June. My Mom is becoming a regular at the vet. Hee, hee, hee!

We love you and hope all is well with your precious family. Give them all big hugs for us. We have them and sweet Shadow in our prayers.

... to my birthday pawty tomorrow, friends!

How are you, dear Dame Dot and family? It's been a little bit cold over here but never mind, we've been choosing the warmest places to have long napps close to the heaters. Mom says she wishes she could stay sleeping with us when her clock rings early morning.

Tomorrow I will be turning seven years old although Momma says I will always be her little kitten.
She brought home a little package with a cute bow on it this evening. I wanted to smell it,but Mom put it into her closet and said I had to wait until tomorrow. Could it be my birthday gift?... I bet it is! Tee-hee!

Since tomorrow is my special day,you are all invited to come home! There will be no live blogging but I will be expecting you all with mice cream cupcakes, shrimp muffins, tuna burritos and catnip drinks. We will be having a music show and kitties performing live, so don't forget to bring your dancing shoes with you!
You are also welcome to spend the night in Buenos Aires.

Sending you tons of love,
your friends always...

We hope you had a great holiday weekend with your family. We really enjoyed Queen Angel Sakura’s Memorial Day pawty at the Cat’s Meow Resort.

I finished up my antibiotics on Sunday and I go in for a urine re-test tomorrow. Yikes! My sister Callie is hoping she is on her last round of antibiotics. Mom had a blood test this morning and she’ll see her doctor on Thursday, hopefully getting a good bill of health. Geez! A bunch of sickies around here!

We saw some peacocks outside our front window this morning. Guess it's time for that silly neighbor who lives close by, to start up his peacock farm again! We wish he wouldn't let them wander- we worry about them!

Give your precious family big hugs for us. We think about you all the time and hope all is well.

Delicious Dreams =^.^=
~~~~~
Cats have always inspired jealousy. The amount of time they spend sleeping and the ease which they doze off is often envied by their human owners. A sleeping cat can fill a room with an air of contentment. Yet of what do cats dream? A twitching paw and a strange, low growl emit from the slumbering bundle. Perhaps a dream of constant cream and fine fish, or is poor puss pursued relentlessly by next door's dog?

Hi Dame Dot and family!
Just pawing by with a quick meow. Callie's urine test results showed she still has a trace of blood showing up. The vet called Mom and Dad this morning and Callie had to go back for a penicillin shot and 10 more days of antibiotics. If after 10 days Callie still has traces of blood in her urine, then the vet will do x-rays. Callie had bladder crystals and stones many years ago, so we’re hoping that is not happening again. Callie has been on prescription food ever since she had that scary bladder surgery and Dad told the vet, Callie is no spring chicken anymore. The bladder surgery was quite tough on her! For a day there, we almost thought she was going to cross the Rainbow Bridge. But she fought hard and recovered nicely. Callie was only a couple years old then- now she is eleven!

We hope to see all our furiends at Queen Angel Sakura’s Memorial Day picnic on May 25th at the Cat’s Meow Resort. King Pete and the Royal Feline Squadron have an amazing airshow planned for the big Memorial Day event!

We too are mourning the loss of our dear furiend and future CC King Uncle Buddy Budd, but we have to try to celebrate his wonderful life, remembering the great times we had with him and his fun loving family. Cats like Uncle Buddy Budd are a real treasure and one we will never, ever forget. When we think of him, we can’t help but SMILE. :)

They left us their photos to gaze at each day,

They left us those moments to think of and smile,

Hi Dame Dot and family!
My sister Callie was due to go back to the vet for a urine test, to make sure the antibiotics did the trick, but my Mom postponed it until tomorrow. Mom was a little bit worn out after taking Ebony to the vet yesterday and now she is worried about his Upper Respiratory Infection, but you all know how our Moms worry. Anyway, Callie was happy to get a one-day reprieve, so we are all taking it easy today. Mom has the vacuum monster out, but Dad is insisting on helping to clean house this weekend and wants us all to rest with Mom. Sounds good to me!

The weather here is cloudy, but no rain is predicted. At least it’s not hot. Purrfect for catnapping inside. Callie and I miss going on our stroller morning walks, but hopefully next week our Mom will get the go ahead from her doctor and can start exercising again. Yay!

Cats & The Weather =^.^=
~~~~~
In the 1930's, a white male cat, named Napoleon, lived with his owner in Baltimore, USA. His observant owner, Mrs de Shields, noted that every time before it rained Napoleon would lie on the floor with his front paws extended and would tuck his head between them.

During Napoleon's lifetime there was a drought. The drought had continued for over a month when his owner noticed the clever cat adopt his "rain on the way" pose. According to the official forecast the weather was to continue dry. Unconvinced, Mrs De Shields telephoned a newspaper and told them that it was going to rain - her cat had prophesied it. It did indeed rain, and thereafter Napoleon's forecasts were published in the paper.

When he died, the tombstone over his grave was inscribed "Napoleon the Weather Prophet 1917 - 1936." It was said that in all the six years that he made his predictions he never got it wrong - which is more than can be said for human meteorologists!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
My Mom got an urgent call from Ebony’s Mom Abarna this morning, saying Ebony was sneezing a lot and had a discharge coming from his eyes. Mom went over right away, put him in the cat carrier and took him to the vet. Ebony has an upper respiratory infection and was given a penicillin injection and a steroid injection. Ebony also had a clump of matted hair close to his behind that needed to be shaven off. He’ll have to go back to the vet in ten days and Abarna has to keep a close eye on Sugar Bear because the respiratory infection is contagious. Fortunately Sugar Bear has been vaccinated for this, although the vet says she could still contract it. We just have to watch her.

My Mom is still recovering from her sinus infection, so she had to wear the face mask the hospital gave her with instructions to wear it if she had to go outside. She felt very silly, but doesn’t want to take any chances at getting a relapse!

I am taking my antibiotics like a good kitty. I still hate the taste and I am counting down the days. Next on the list, Callie has to go back to the vet for another urine test. Mom is saving that for tomorrow!

Give your family big hugs for us dear furiend. Tell sweet Shadow we have her in our prayers. Of course we have your entire family in our thoughts and prayers too!

I'm big and huggable, just like a teddy bear

Yet I purr like a kitten and can still climb a tree

Please consider a pet that is older in years
We give lots of love and take away all the tears

Hi Dame Dot and family!
Well, I started my liquid antibiotics this morning. My Mom thought she would need my Dad to help her, but they soon discovered it was easier to just let my Mom do it. I’m not ready to let my Dad handle me. Mom was able to hold me with one arm and use her other hand to squirt the medicine in my mouth. Afterwards, Mom held me for a few minutes before letting me run off. I forgave her quickly and rolled on my back for a belly rub. Hee, hee, hee! I have a feeling I’m going to be able to get a lot more belly rubs in the next several days.

We are all still taking good care of our Mom. Whitey has been unusually affection to Mom, clinging to her legs when she gets up and hopping back on the bed to lie by her side. We haven’t been going on our stroller walks, but Mom keeps telling us we will very soon. The weather has been overcast and cloudy the past few days, purrfect for resting in bed with our Mom.

We hope your family is doing well sweetie. Give dear Shadow a warm hug for us as well as everyone in your precious family. We have all of you in our prayers.

White Chin =^.^=

You have stepped out into your garden of grace
to observe trees, birds dancing like leaves,
watch grass shifting in waves
and to sniff wetness on flowers
after rearranging dark earth,
paws scrabbling at roots.

Now you slink gently as silence
venturing into conservatory, then house,
assume patrol position on wide windowsill
to ensure all your great outdoors is in its place
then you come to me,
butting me with nose and side of cheek,
licking my hand and arm,
purring friendship all over my knee.

Circling you wind down to curl your feathered tail
around yourself and me, relaxing completely
(except for satellite ears)
into curve of soft furry sleep...
white chin on grey paws.
