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!
We’re gearing up for some more hot weather this week. Today is in the mid 80’s, but by tomorrow we’ll be back in the 90’s and maybe even triple degrees on Wednesday. So no catnapping on the deck during the day for us. Thankfully we have A/C so we can all pick our favorite spots in the house and rest comfortably.

Our pawrents spent the weekend visiting Ebony and Sugar Bear’s Mom Abarna in the hospital. Abarna gave everyone a scare on Sunday when her heart rhythms became irregular, but the hospital staff has been closely monitoring her vitals and today she seems to be doing better. Ebony and Sugar Bear are doing great, always happy to see our Mom when she goes to feed them. Since my Mom is always gone for an hour or two, we’re pretty sure she is over there playing cat games and reading to the two kitties. That’s okay. Mom always spends time with us too!

You and Tucker look so cute investigating your Mom's beautiful herb garden! Did you find any catnip plants growing in there?!

Oh sweetie, my next vet appointment is on August 4th. I feel great so hopefully it will go okay. I'll be sure to let you know. Thanks so much for your prayers. You are all such 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!
We have some great mews! The little lost gray kitty is back with her family! My Mom had thought the little kitty was a male, but in fact, “HE” is really a “SHE.” (Shows you how much my Mom knows!)

Late Thursday night we got a call from a young man saying he saw one of the “Found Cat” flyers that my Mom had posted on the walking trail by our house and he thought it looked like his Mom's cat whom had been missing for 4 months. It was late, so we had to wait until the next day to meet with them.

Friday morning it was confirmed! The kitty is named Pepper and she is three years old. Apparently the Mom recently moved in with her daughter and Pepper ran away during the move over 4 months ago. Their home is less than a mile away from us! It was a heartwarming reunion. The lady was recovering from some sort of major surgery, so she looked very weak. When Mom put Pepper in her arms, she broke into tears.

The lady expressed concern about her daughter having a small dog in the house and she thought that was why Pepper ran away. We happened to have an extra cat tree for Pepper to use as an escape from the doggie. Mom and Dad drove to her house, set up the cat tree in her bedroom and told her the cat just needs to be able to escape somewhere safe from the dog. The dog is a small Chihuahua and very yappy. Mom advised her to give them both time to get acquainted, but NOT to let the cat outside for a few weeks. Mom also suggested getting Pepper a microchip, just in case. We are so relieved for Pepper and her family! We know all your prayers helped and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

More good mews- our neighbor Abarna is doing much better after her heart attack and bypass surgery. Mom visits her every day and gives her updates on Ebony and Sugar Bear, who are both doing fine. The doctors won’t say when Abarna might be released from the hospital, but her primary doctor said if she keeps improving the way she is, she might be back home late next week.

My Mom knew your dear Mom would be touched by the song on the CD. We know sweet Angel Shadow left big paw prints in a lot of hearts. ♥

Hi dear Dot!
Oh no worries or sorries for thinking Emmi was Jax; Emmi always did look like a puppy. She had a puppy face, kids would want to come up and pet her, but she was NOT good with children so they couldn't. Mom feels bad she hasn't put up a pic of Jax, she needs to send one to your mom. He looks like a mini Golden Retriever. Mom had his DNA tested but it was too mixed to find out much. They did find Border Collie and Boxer 3 generations back.

Goodness! Was mom shocked when she saw my Memory Page in the window this morning! Thanks so much for coming over to concatulate me; it is nice to enjoy our special memories here on Cat Channel and I sure have had a lot of them over the past five and a half years. I do remember quite fondly my reign and getting to know you guys. A very, very special time indeed. Mom thanks you for the beer and I thank you for the primo nip. Heh heh heh let's pawty!

Thanks so much and have a wonderful evening! Big hugs from ❀The Lily Pad❀

Hi Dame Dot and family!
I know it’s been a few days since my last meow and I have some good mews and bad mews. The bad mews is our next door neighbor, Abarna, had a heart attack and had bypass surgery yesterday. Abarna is the nice lady who adopted Ebony and Sugar Bear. The good mews is Abarna’s doctor is hopeful she’ll recover. Her son is staying with her at the hospital and my Mom is taking care of the kitties until she can come home.

Mews on the little gray kitty... Unfortunately, the home Mom had lined up for the little gray kitty didn't work out. The nice lady from Alley Cat Allies wanted to take him, but her husband did not. Apparently she is still trying to convince her husband. In the meantime, she will help Mom try to find a home for the little kitty. Since she is a vet assistant and volunteers for Alley Cat Allies, she has a lot more resources than Mom does. The kitty is doing fine at our house. He likes the cathouse during the day and Mom locks him up in the garage and backyard at night to keep him safe. Mom keeps checking at the local animal shelter to see if anyone has been looking for him, but no luck yet. If nothing comes up, my Mom plans on taking him to our vet for a checkup, vaccinations and to make sure he has been fixed. Mom hasn’t taken him to the vet yet because we really thought we would have found his family by now. He seems very healthy, so waiting until next week to see the vet should be okay. I also have my urine retest at the end of the month, so it will remain hectic around here for a while. (Sigh!)

Oh sweet furiend, we're so sorry the words on the CD made your dear Mom cry. It does the same to my Mom every time she hears it. But it did give my Mom some solace knowing she is not alone in the way she feels about about her furbabies. Now, whenever the crossing anniversary of her angel doggies comes around, my Mom plants flowers along the trail, their favorite place to walk, and she plays the song for them while she tries to remember the happy times she had with them. And there were a lot! Give your dear Mom a soft hug for us sweetie and keep taking good care of her. We have all of you in our prayers.

Hi dear Dot!
And K Tuck, Mouse, Maizy and mom and dad! NOPE, that's not the mewbie Jax, that's our dear Angel Emmi. She and I were besties. I miss her bunches.

It’s me! RennieBoots!

Oh boy! It’s been an exciting day for me in the spotlight! I was so surprised and mom was delighted to see me in the window.

Thanks so much for coming over and bringing the basket filled with assorted Pawty Mix & Temptation treats! Do I have to share the bouquet of primo catnip from your garden with Lily? MOL Just kidding.

Our CC community is the best ever and I am dedicating my shiny mew badge to my Angel Doggie Sis and to all the Catmoms and Catdads that need extra prayers right now.

Have a super evening! Many pawhugs from RennieBoots!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
It was another hot day in the 90’s today, only this time we had humidity too! Yuck! We kept hoping we would get some of the rain that Southern California got, but no luck.

Our Mom took Callie and me out for a ride in our cat stroller at 5 a.m. and it was already 68 degrees outside. We filled the bucket with water by the dry creek and sprinkled birdseed along the trail. Everything looks very dry.

We are all doing fine. I won’t see the vet for my urine retest until the end of the month. I’ve been eating a little bit more of my prescription cat food, but not as much as my Mom would like. She has been supplementing what I eat with two syringes filled with my food pureed in the blender. At first I protested, but it’s not really that bad. Mom will monitor my weight and see how everything goes when I visit the vet.

Our furiends next door, Ebony and Sugar Bear are doing fine too. Ebony has been sneezing a lot lately according to his Mom Abarna, so my Mom is going to take Ebony to the vet tomorrow for a check up. A couple of months ago he was treated for an Upper Respiratory Infection, so Mom wants to play it safe and catch it before it gets worse.

We always have your sweet family in our prayers. Give your Mom a big hug for us.

Hi Dame Dot and family!
Mom and Dad were gone all morning, so us kitties had the run of the house. Dad is having major dental work done to have implants and a bridge put in. It is a long, slow process. Today he sat in the dentist chair for 3 long hours. Mom went with him for moral support and to drive him home. The dentist didn’t finish what he had set out to do, so they have to go back again tomorrow. Yes, the dentist only works on Saturdays for special cases. Our Dad wants to get all this over with before the school year starts again, but it won’t be possible. At least Dad will have temporary teeth to wear to school. Can’t have a teacher missing his bottom front teeth! MOL!

We are all doing fine. The little lost kitty is getting used to sleeping in the backyard at night and he likes to nap in the garage during the day. It’s in the 90’s again, so Mom has a fan in the garage, along with cold water and cat treats. It’s not too bad.

We continue to keep Queen Lady Dolly’s Mom Janada in our prayers, along with all our other dear CC friends.

Be sure to tell your sweet Mom to check her mailbox. The CD we sent you should be there! Give her and the family big hugs for us. We hope you all have a nice, relaxing weekend.

Hi Sweet Dot!
It sure was good to hear from you, gurlfurriend, and I'm so glad your mom has you to liven up her days. It certainly does sound like your house is way too quiet. I know dear Shadow will be missed every minute of the day as she was such a central part and the heart of the household. I hope your pawrents' hearts are not as hurty, in time they will smile when they think of her instead of cry. But not for a long time.

Oh that mew drooler! Can you say "Me, too"....that drooler does everything the coyote does and follows her around everywhere. They play rough and mom says "TAKE IT OUTSIDE!" and she asks Dad whose idea it was to get a puppy. He answers "Yours." Oh brother, mom, did ya lose your marbles. Jax is in puppy class; mom takes him on Tuesday nights and boy does he need some class! He's smart.....ummmm....too smart. He figured out how to open the gate on the fenced in back yard. So dad had to build a mew gate with a mew and more solid latch. Mom says it's the Border Collie in him.

He's a nice size, way littler than the coyote - or wolf she looks like now. Speaking of the wolf, she passed her Therapy Dog test and mom will have the vet sign the appropriate paperwork and they will mail in the application.

The folks and sis are headed to Indy Saturday to visit biggest brother and go to a Beer Fest. Sis just turned 21 a few days ago so she wants to go, but she doesn't even like beer. LOL She probably can find something she likes. Then in a couple of weeks the boys will be moving and mom and dad are planning to help them. Middle brother is moving to biggest brothers old place, and biggest brother is moving to the other side of the duplex. It will be wierd to have them living side-by-side. Middle brother is going to go back to school. He wants to go to aircraft mechanics school. Hope it works out for him.

Have a super evening! Big hugs!!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
My Mom got two calls in response to her “Found Cat” flyer. Mom didn’t feel comfortable giving out our home address to strangers, so she arranged to meet both parties at a nearby shopping center. So off they went, the little gray kitty and Mom on a field trip. Sadly, our little lost furiend was not the cat either family was searching for. We can tell our Mom is already getting attached to the little guy, but she knows he deserves a good home as an inside kitty. Thankfully if we don’t find his real family, he’ll have a new one waiting for him with the lady from Alley Cat Allies.

Give your sweet Mom a big hug for us dear furiends. We always have your Mom and the family in our prayers.

Hi Dot!
Still raining? Please, if you wouldn't mind, send some of those clouds our way! We had the hottest June here since, I don't know, about 1880 or something like that. It's just more of the same in July too. A BIT cooler, but nothing to get excited about.

I used to screw up mom's alarm clock/radio on the headboard of the bed, so mom got a little wooden box and took one side off of it and put it over the clock radio. So now she can still see it but I can't mess with the buttons. *pout* Mom never lets me have ANY fun!

So, you and dad were racing in the yard? Sounds like FUN! I never run. I have NO idea why. I just trot. The big racers around here are Pig and Bee Gee. Sometimes Bonnie. Sniff tries to chase Bee Gee and leap up onto the counter after her, but he usually just plows into the front of the cabinet, kinda like Wile E. Coyote. Hahhhaaaa!! *whew* Mirth!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
We apologize for not meowing the past couple of days. My Dad’s son and his family came to visit and they brought baby George. It has already been almost 3 years since my Mom flew out to North Carolina to help her stepson and his wife, after George was born. And this was the first time that our Dad got to meet his grandson! Needless to say, baby George is not a baby anymore. He is an adorable toddler and we all had a nice visit. They could only stay for two days because they wanted to fly to San Diego to visit GM. They’ll stay with GM two days and then head back to North Carolina.

All of us kitties stayed hiding in our bedroom while we had a little tyke running around the house, but the lost kitty staying in the cathouse in our yard, came out to meet everyone and even let George pet him! The little lost kitty is very loving and trusting. No one has called looking for him, but Mom is still giving it one more week before she takes him to his new furever home with the nice lady from Alley Cat Allies.

Give your sweet Mom a hug for us. We always have her and your whole family in our thoughts and prayers.

Hi Dot!
For the past three days the weatherman has been teasing us with a slight promise of rain. Same tomorrow. But have we HAD any actual rain? NO! ! ! ! ! Stupid weatherman! They are EVIL!

I'm actually not a big one for getting up on the kitchen counter, now that I think about it. I do like to walk across the counter to get to the window over the sink. But right now mom has that window just about boarded up to keep the heat out. Sometimes I get on the counter when mom is fixing something to eat. She never gives me anything though. Stingy. :-)

Hi Dame Dot and family!
The temperature is slowly beginning to creep up. We are still in the low 80’s, but next week will be back to the 90’s. All of us kitties are enjoying the backyard deck while we can. My Mom opened the garage door so the little lost kitty can get out of the sun. Mom set up a fan in the garage to keep it sort of cool and she put a cat bed inside, along with cold water and Temptation treats. The cathouse in the front is great for sleeping at night, but it’s too warm to sleep in during the day. A couple of raccoons have been showing up in the evening, probably looking for water. My Mom was worried the kitty might get hurt by them, so she put him the backyard last night to sleep. The backyard has a cat fence to keep him safe. Of course after my Mom let the little guy back out this morning, my sisters and I had to sniff out the yard, trying to figure out who the new interloper is. MOL!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
It’s another overcast day in the 70’s here. We even got a few raindrops this morning! They dried up as soon as they hit the ground and got the cars dirty, but it felt nice. We went on our stroller walk this morning, filled the water bucket up by the creek and Mom put up more flyers for the “Found Cat” along the walking trail. No calls yet but we’re hopeful. When Mom fed the little gray kitty this morning, after he finished eating, he rolled over on his back wanting a belly rub! Mom couldn’t resist. He is such a loving kitty. Maybe too much! But he is staying in our front yard, either in or on top of the cathouse, or sitting on the front door steps.

I have been eating a little more of my new prescription cat food. I overheard my pawrents saying if I didn’t start eating more, they would puree the cat food in a blender and feed me with a syringe. Yikes! I don’t want that!

Yippee! We're so happy your pawrents have a CD player. Can you believe our pawrents even have a turntable that plays vinyl records?! Hee, hee, hee! Good mews - the CD shipped out today so your Mom should get it next week. Keep up the great work taking good care of your sweet Mom. You want to keep her smiling! Give everyone hugs for us dear furiend. We always have you and your precious family in our prayers.

Hi Dame Dot and family!
The temperature was in the low 70’s today with lots of cloud cover, but no rain. It was a nice morning to walk on the trail by our house in our cat stroller. We always fill the water bucket by the dry creek and scatter birdseed along the way. The lost kitty was asleep in the cathouse when we left for our walk this morning. He peeked out and went back to sleep. It was 5 A.M. MOL! The little guy has quieted down, only meowing when he’s hungry. We posted a picture of him in my gallery. He’s a real cutie-pie!

So today Mom took flyers to the local animal shelter, rescue groups and several vets in our area. She also posted a digital “Found Cat” flyer on 2 websites for Lost & Found Pets. (PetFBI.org and FindToto.com)

My Mom also met with her friend from Alley Cat Allies and another volunteer named Christina. Christina saw the pictures of the little guy and is very interested in adopting him if we can’t find his real home. She gave my Mom her business card and seems to be a very nice lady. She works as a vet assistant and does volunteer work for Alley Cat Allies in her spare time. Christina wants to come by our house next weekend to meet him! Even if the kitty’s family comes by to claim him a few weeks from now, at least we’ll know where he is and he’ll have a safe and loving home in the meantime. Keep your paws crossed.:)

My Mom and us kitties still have something coming to your house. It was on back order and the company is hoping to send it out this week. It's nothing much. My Mom heard this song on a CD when she had to say goodbye to her furbabies, and she wanted to share it with your Mom. It will come on a CD and we hope you have a CD player! MOL! We never thought they would be outdated! We still have a cassette player here at home!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
Our weather has cooled down considerably compared to last week. Today we are in the mid 70’s and the rest of the week will only get to the low 80’s. Hooray! No rain predicted for us, but we’ll take the cooler temperatures.

The little lost gray kitty spent the night in our outside cathouse. My Mom made it nice and cozy with fresh bedding and blankets. He was meowing early this morning, so Mom went out to feed him and he quieted down. My Mom took Callie and me for a walk in our cat stroller and we checked to make sure all the “Found Cat” flyers were up. Now we wait and hope someone is looking for the little guy.

On no! You almost ate a pepper! Whew! Close call! That would have been a disaster. Be careful sweetie. You are so funny. Keep up the great work keeping your Mom smiling. Give her a hug for us. We have all of you in our thoughts and prayers.

My kitty is so funny,
he's always having fun,
everything is a plaything,
whether snow or rain or sun.

He chases all the pigeons,
and next doors dove,
he doesn't want to eat them,
just to give them a love!

His affection is endless,
a constant noisy purr,
he always wants a cuddle
my little bundle of fur!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
There was a cat meowing in front of our house this morning, hiding under our van parked in the driveway. When my Mom went to check it out, she saw a small gray kitty just sitting there crying. So of course Mom ran to get a bowl of food, hopefully to coax him out. The cat was hungry so he ate as soon as my Mom backed away. But afterwards, he stayed under the van meowing like crazy.

Well Mom had the cat carrier ready and she managed to grab the cat. Hoping he had a microchip, Mom took him to our vet to be scanned. The cat does not have a microchip, but his claws looked to be recently trimmed and he seems very domesticated. He never growled or hissed as the vet checked him over. He also has a small spot on his neck that looks like it was recently shaved. Anyway, the vet suggested to Mom to bring him back home and just feed him for the next few days. Mom took a picture of him and made up some flyers to post around the neighborhood. So Mom brought him home, he ate and went running down the street. Later as Mom was posting the “Found Cat” flyers, the kitty would appear and followed Mom around the block by our house.

Needless to say our Dad is not happy, but the cat needs our help so we’re not going to turn our backs on him. If he is still hanging around in a couple of weeks, my Mom will take him back to the vet for a checkup to make sure he is fixed and has his shots. We have the empty cathouse out in the front yard and there is also a cat feeding station, so the little guy won’t starve and he has a place to sleep.

My Mom is going to walk the trail by our house and post some more flyers. She is also going to contact her friend from Alley Cat Allies. This cat is very adoptable and deserves a chance at a home; if he doesn’t already have one. We have our paws crossed!

Boy oh boy! We hate it went some of our blogs go POOF! We're glad to hear you, Tuck and Maizy are keeping your dear Mom happy with all your funny antics! Keep up the great work sweetie!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
We had a nice 4th of July here at home. Fireworks could be heard going off outside, but our pawrents had the house closed up tight with music playing as we watched the fireworks on TV.

Sunday my Dad’s brother and his family came over for a barbeque. Since us cats don’t really care for company, we all stayed upstairs but Mom left the bedroom door open so we could occasionally peek out.

I’m doing fine, happy to be finished with my medicines. I’m still trying to adjust to the new prescription food. Mom is trying two different brands of the urinary care cat food - Royal Canin and Hill’s C/D. I seem to prefer the Royal Canin, but my sisters like the Hill’s C/D. That’s okay. My Mom says we can have both, as long as we all eat!

Aww, we're glad you and Tuck helped your sweet Mom pack up all of Shadow's things. That's must have been so sad for your Mom. My Mom has two boxes that she packed away with stuff that belonged to her two doggies. Every once in awhile she opens the boxes, has a good cry, but happy memories always come flooding back. Give your dear Mom a hug for us. She is so lucky to have her kitties there to comfort her.

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.

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!

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.:)

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!

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!

The sofa was always my best scratching post,

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.

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

I'm only a cat,
and I stay in my place...
Up there on your chair,
on your bed or your face!

I'm only a cat,
and I don't finick much...
I'm happy with cream
and anchovies and such!

I'm only a cat,
and we'll get along fine...
As long as you know
I'm not yours... you're all mine!

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.
