Education: I used to be a very good hunter and I tried to teach my little sister & brother all about life. I am a very sweet girl who doesn't mind sharing, unlike a certain bro & sis!

I won 1st place in CC's My Furry Valentine Contest, Feb 2012. Thank you to my furiends for their votes & furiendships.

My favorite tricks and treats are: I love to lay on the couch and be groomed and then roll off it!!! I look so funny doing this!
Also, I can open Mommy's closet doors (I like to nosey around in there). and
I eat my lysine treats sometimes. I have the herpes virus & it affects my eyes. So I visit Dr. William every 3 months for my Schirmer eye test.

Where I hang out: I love to sleep in my heated sherpa bed or the popcorn bowl on top of the fridge. I also like to get up in my "playhouse" on my back porch that Nana & PawPaw bought me - it has three levels & I like the highest one!

My favorite grubs: On 5-9-13, I was diagnosed with early kidney disease. So I had to give up my Fancy Feast because it contains way too much protein. Now I eat Prescription Diet k/d dry & Blue Buffalo Wilderness Mature canned foods. I also eat Purina nf kidney function dry. The CRF has made me lose weight. I weigh 8 lbs. I like the mew FF broths - they are yummy & contain only 7% protein.

My pet peeves: I don't really like to travel 65 miles roundtrip to visit Dr. William so often, but I am a good traveler. I don't really mind getting my sub-q fluids at home. I am a very good patient.

What I love about my owners: I love my family because they take such great care of me & they love me very much. I am very thankful that my Nana & Mommy took me over 180 miles to see a feline ophthalmologist about my eyes.

My cat hobbies: In the past, I loved being outside in our back yard. I have caught lizards, birds, grasshoppers, moles, and chipmunks - I am quick!!

Pet motto: Cats rule, Dogs drool!!!

How We Met

I came to my Mommy's house one day right before Christmas in 1999 (hence the name MerryBelle) because my other family moved off and left me. Can you imagine that? I'm glad though, or else I wouldn't be so loved and well taken care of!!! We celebrate my birthday on May 20 and my adoptiversary on December 16.

Hurry, MerryBelle! Time's a-wastin'!
It’s Beer Can Appreciation Day and we have just about missed the whole thing! Honestly, ya can’t get a good secretary around here for anything! And we can’t possible miss this special day THIS year of all years! Didja know it’s the beer can’s 80th birthday this very day? Oh, not THIS beer can, but “the” beer can.

American Can Company had been workin’ on the beer can dilemma 1909, but they had one big problem. The steel cans tended to explode from the 80 lbs. per sq. in. of pressure. NOT a great sellin’ point, mol. It took about two more decades for ‘em to figure out that lining the steel cans with the same material used to line kegs would keep them intact. It was 80 years ago this very day, on January 24, 1935, when cans of Krueger’s Finest Beer and Krueger’s Cream Ale hit the shelves in Richmond, Virginia—and quickly sold out.

So let’s toast the humble beer can …. a work of engineering genius! The outsides are a canvas for creative artistic minds and then the Inside, well, that’s just good stuff. Come on, have another one! It’s only 5 months till the 3rd annual Mallowwood Beer Can Boat Regatta and we have a whole lot of cans to empty before then! -- A. Mallow

Oh,I got it
You figured out the angle to make the Mom feel bad,did you??? Why didn't we think of that sooner! There,there....little Stevie is here. I know,I would roll over,sigh,and close my eyes too if someone said that to me. Ya know,while your mom is in her post BD sugar coma,we need to find you another hiding spot,under the bed is SO last year! Not only that,you don't want her to like....oh,say duct tape you to the counter to hold you down now,do you??? I'm kidding,I know your mom would NEVER do anything as cruel as that.

Hi Q. MerryBelle and family!
As soon as my Mom woke up this morning, we all ran to the computer room to see if CC was back up. Hooray! It was! My Mom had sent a few emails each day to the i5Publishing Site Support along with several screen shots of how awful the CC pages looked. We only heard back from them one time, acknowledging our emails, so we thought we were doomed. We were thrilled to see everything back to normal. Mom wrote a thank you email to the site support right away. It couldn’t hurt!

We are all doing fine, catnapping in the windows and the backyard since the sun is shining. Whitey and Orangie have been enjoying the backyard more and more each day. Whitey has tried to climb the tree a few times, but she’s learning there is no escape. The trees have a netted hoop around them midway up the tree, so she bounces back each time.

Ebony and Sugar Bear got heated “Kitty Sill” beds for Christmas, so Mom went to their house to install them. The two kitties loved them so much, Mom ordered a couple for our windows. Let’s see who fights over them. MOL!

Oh sweetie! We are so sorry to hear the difficult time your dear Mom and Nana are having with your fluids. You are such a brave kitty. My Mom says it will take time, but your Mom and Nana will get better. My Mom used to cry at first when she first started administering fluids to her doggie, but it does get easier. God bless all of you. We have you and your family in our constant prayers.

We left a warm vote with soft purrs, hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need. We’re so happy to be back!

Kitty Creation Story =^.^=
~~~~~
During the first winter,
humans struggled to keep
warm. God decided to
create a helper. The helper
would be a space heater
that could be kept on the
lap or the end of the bed
for warmth. God covered
the little heater with soft
fur that relieved stress
when humans put their
hands on it. Two bright
eyes were added as
windows to God’s love, for
the heater created warmth
with a heart that loved
without condition. And, if
you listened closely, you
could hear his motor run.

Sweet MerryBelle
You just hang in there, dear one. Your Mom and Nana will have it down pat before you know it and then things will be smooth and less painful. It's difficult for them because they hate to have to stick you because they love you so much and because they do, they want to help you and keep you around for a long time. They will do just fine. Continuing to keep you all in our prayers.
Hugs & Love to All,
Lady Dolly & Mom Janada

Well,stretch the vocal cords and all that stuff,we have a BD song to sing! I can barely wait for your mom to open my homemade gift and read my card. I made it myself with my own little paw print on it. Thats right,no E-card for her! Nope,this is something she better hang on the fridge and look at daily. she can make a mass email thanking me though,that is acceptable,but NOOOOOOO,no Ecard for her! Ok,time to chug the fluids!

Hi MerryBelle
OHHH Sweetie we're so sorry for not having pawed over sooner. Seb's momma knows how hard it was for your momma to learn that your numbers had gone up and that you needed fluids twice a week. We have prayed and hoped that your kidney numbers would have stayed low.

You are so very brave to have fluids twice a week. You are one of my heroes for doing so.

Sebastien's momma has been busy taking care of their neighbor kitty, Winston, while his pawrents are out-of-town. They've been gone since the beginning of the month. Sebastien isn't too happy about sharing his "person" but Winston's pawrents will be back around Jan 31-Feb 1. Sebastien will be happy when they are. MOL.

All of us are keeping you in our prayers dear friend. Have a purrtastic Thursday.

Angel purrs and hugs,

Thank you for stopping by to help me celebrate my 'dopty day! Get this - mom forgot! She only remembered when she checked my page this morning. Grrrr.... Well, I guess I can't be TOO upset about it, seeing as how she IS about a thousand years old. Well, she is! Almost. Be sure to grab a goody bag on the way out.

Hi Merrybelle!
Keep up the good work with the fluids. We knew your mom could do it!! We know that they were a big benefit for Sabrina , plus Dr Candy told us that the kitties feel better from the fluids.

I love watching EVERYTHING from a few of the windows, especially the bedroom but also the garden window. For some reason I do not look out the window too much by the cat tree, Mom does not know why... there are lots of people and dogs to watch from that one!

Hi Q. MerryBelle,
How are you doing today? We are having a miserable Winter day. Mom went out to feed the birds and I went on the porch for a few minutes, waved at the birds and ran back inside. Hehehe.!!! I am sorry that we have missed a few days but Mom had a dental appointment on Monday and they had to clean around her bridge and she was a little miserable after that and on Tuesday she and Dad had appointments with a new family Dr. as well as regular work around the house but, we are back today. My sisters and I have been snoozing in our favorite places but that just means that later on we will be re-charged and ready for action. Look out Mom, Dad, our toys and anything else that may get in our way.!!! I hope that you will have a great day too. Purrs and a hug, Mittens... Ps: I am keeping you and your Mom in my prayers dear friend. I know that you will do well with your fluids...

Hey, that's good news, MerryBelle!
Our mom had to learn how to do that, too. It's not so bad once she gets the hang of it. Good that the vet told your mom about warming the fluid before giving it to you. Good luck, my sweet furiend. It will be much more convenient for the both of you to get your fluids at home.

Hey MerryBelle!
Well Mom was told to give Angel Anderson 100 cc to 150 cc. So that's why Mom thought 200 cc sounded like a lot. But he got the fluids daily and you only get it twice a week. So who knows? Maybe it depends on the numbers or maybe different Vets just go with different amounts. Glad to hear Mom is doing well with the procedure. We knew she could do it! Keeping you in our prayers every day. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. Dean

We're so proud of you being such a good girl for fluids, you will get used to it too and it will be easier and easier. Well, actually kudos go to your mom for learning the right way!! My mom went for two lessons because she did not feel confident after the first time... Sabrina got fluids for a year and a half so Mom is really a pro at it now!! She never had a problem with bubbles or it not working right. Remember, the higher you have the bag the faster it will come out!

Hi Q MerryBelle
That's pawsome that your mom can now give you fluids at home! My mom would need written instructions too until she got used to it. Sounds like the first 'round' went well & are still continuing our prayers that things will stay on an even level for you beautiful girl!

Today we’re melting a little bit more with our warmer temp & some sunshine! All of our outside kitties are enjoying everything about the nicer weather…except for the puddles of water…MOL! Bartholomew was here again to eat & get attention yesterday. Joseph whacked him on the tail but got no response so at least we know he isn’t ready to fight at the slightest paw twitch.
Did you see the pawsome story at Free Kibble today? In case you didn’t I decided to meow about it because the kitty in it is a true heroine & has earned her earth angel wings!

A baby boy in Russia is lucky to be alive thanks to the mothering nature of a stray cat.
According to The Daily Mail, the infant, estimated to be between 2-3 months old, was abandoned in the entryway of an apartment building in Obninsk, as temperatures dropped below zero. The baby was placed in a box, and doctors believed that he was in the cold temperatures for a few hours.
Though the baby showed no other signs of abuse or neglect, the cold temperatures could easily have caused serious problems for the infant. But Marsha, a resident stray cat, who neighbors say, frequents the building, climbed into the box with the boy and kept him warm for hours.
Nadezhda Makhovikova, who lives in the apartment building, told reporters at REN TV that she heard a cat meowing and it sounded like the cat was in distress. When she went to investigate, she found the boy and Marsha in the box and immediately called police.
An ambulance came to pick up the boy and took him to the hospital. Residents of the apartment building say that the cat ran out after the ambulance and appeared to be concerned with where they were taking the baby.
The boy was checked over by medical staff at the hospital, and he was declared fit and healthy, despite the scary ordeal. Police are looking for the boy’s parents and, for now, the baby is being cared for in the hospital.
While it’s tragic that the boy’s parents abandoned him and left him to die, Marsha’s instincts helped to save the baby’s life.

Hooray for the heroic kitty!! Well got to run for now so I can see what the youngsters are up to since it got so quiet. Will meow at you again very soon.

Purrs of love,

Mom and I have had you & Mom in our thoughts and prayers all weekend and today. Sorry to be so late but Mom was gone most of the day and napped this late afternoon.

That was wonderful that your mom had Nana there to help her the first time and that it went so well. Thank the Lord and we will continue to pray that it will go well twice a week for a long, long time.

So glad you are eating well and playing, sweetie. Keep up the good work.

Hey MerryBelle ..
It sounds like your Mommy got a good lesson on giving you the fluids. Mom had to give them to her daughter's kitty many years ago.

This weekend was lovely here ... Mom did some gardening, and she and Dad got a few errands run. I spent the entire time watching over them and making sure they didn't forget anything. MOL.

I think it's neat that you still play with your toys. I got lazy and quit playing, preferring to sit in Mom's lap or to curl up in the warm bed she got me. I'd also watch the birds in our yard ... they were so used to seeing me in the window, they just kept eating the seed Mom spread out for them. I would then roll over and nap. Are you taking lots of naps? They are a time for our bodies to recoup and for our energy to build up again.

Well, must get going. Mom has a busy day tomorrow, beginning with taking Dad to the train early ... she said she just wished the sun was not in her eyes the entire drive home. Then she takes a friend to her appointment, and if they have time later they do a bit of shopping.

Dropping off a vote, purrs and whisker tickles, A.Q. Cherish and Mom June.

.


Hello A.Q. Cherish
How was your weekend? Friday Nana, Mommy & I went back to Brookhaven (65 miles roundtrip) to visit Dr. William for our lesson on how to give me fluids at home. Mommy learned lots of mew things, like how to heat the fluids, what to do if there is a bubble in the fluids and how to change the needle & start a mew bag. Doc gave Mommy a written list of instructions, just in case she does not remember everything she learned, which will probably happen.

While Mommy was home from work for lunch today, she & Nana gave me 200 cc fluids. All went very well. For now, I will get fluids every Monday & Thursday. We just hope twice a week will be enough fluids for awhile. We don't want to get to the fluids every day point for a VERY long time.

I am still active and seem to feel well. I still play with my toys sometimes. I go back to visit Dr. William in 2 weeks for bloodwork. Thank you for your continued prayers.

Hugs & Love,
Q MerryBelle & Mommy Angela

Hi Q MerryBelle!
Aw you look SO comfy in that bed, snug as a bug in a rug one might say. That's good news that Mom and Nana have learned to give you the Sub-Q fluids at home; that will keep you healthy longer and much, much less stress on you not having to travel so much. Not to mention less stress for Mom and Nana having to drive you there so often. I hope it continues to go well and each time gets easier. I think of you and continue to pray that the diet and the fluids keep you happy and healthy for a long, long time. Your Mom is NOT ready to let you go anytime soon, dear one.

Have a peaceful and relaxing evening! Big hugs from Lily and RennieBoots!

We had a good weekend and it was warm and sunny and no rain! All of my sibs went outside to play, but of course, I never go outside. It scares me!

I'm glad your Dr. William showed your Mom how to administer your fluids, so you don't have to make that long trip twice a week! That sure is a long way to go! And I pray that you will not have to have them more than twice a week for a very long time, too! We're keeping you in our daily prayers.

I'm very fortunate that I only have to go about 3 miles to my vet. Well, the expensive one, anyway...MOL! But they are very good at what they do. It's been so cold that Mom won't put me in a carrier, so she just wraps me up in a big towel and holds me while Dad drives. I guess we'll have to make it on Thursday, this week, cuz Dad is working all the rest of the time and Wednesday will be a little too soon. I only have to get my fluids every 7-10 days. Thanks for your prayers for me. They are working! I may not make it to my 22nd birthday in September, but I'm sure gonna try!

Well, my very sweet furiend, I am glad you seem to be feeling good and are still active. I'm leaving you a healing vote and wishes for a very blessed evening and pleasant dreams. Take care and I'll check on you, later. Love ya!

Lots of kitty kisses, hugs and purrs,
Duchess and Mom Ruthann

Hi MerryBelle
Glad to know that your mommy is doing so well with giving you your fluids. Yes, we are praying that I don't get to that point for a long time either. I'm so happy that you seem to be doing well. I'm holding my own and becoming quite demanding when it comes to mealtimes, MOL.
Love,
Sakura

Hi MerryBelle!
We had a "normal" weekend. Mom and dad took one of our dogs to the clinic for her rabies shot Saturday, then Sunday we listened to mom having a nervous breakdown listening to a football game. *sigh* In our opinion she gets WAY too worked up about this stuff. :-)

Oh, that is SO cool your mama learned to do the SQ liquids! And we bet you are the best patient for her. Glad to hear it went well, we are so excited for you! Hugs and purrs

Hey MerryBelle!
Congrats to Mommy & Nana for giving you the fluids today! Glad it went well. I knew they could do it! 200 cc is alot! Mom was suppose to give Angel Anderson 150 but was usually lucky to get 100 in. Great for them! It gets easier. We continue to keep you all in our prayers. We know you will feel fine. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. Dean

TODAY'S CAT FACT
WHY DO CATS HAVE WHISKERS?

The whiskers on your cat are actually touch receptors.
The tips of their whiskers are so sensitive, they can
detect the slightest directional change in a breeze.

Cats feel their way around even in the dark. Your cat will be able to move smoothly into a dark room and not bump into anything.

Whiskers also help cats figure out where they will fit. The whiskers on your cat's nose are about as long as his body is wide. This helps them to figure out how wide an opening is and whether or not they will be able to fit through it.

Thank you for the votes for COTM. I appreciate your support.

Have a great week!! Leaving a vote for you.

Your friend,
Buddy

Hi Merrybelle
Not a bad day today. We were in the 30's. No wind, but it was slippery this morning as we had freezing rain last night...they said we might get 2-3" of snow WED..we shall see.

mom went to work today and got home at 4:05pm..she is now off til Saturday. She is looking for another part-time 2-day a week job to make ends meet.

We all had our dinner and now we are all washing our little faces and paws....mom was laughing at me cause I don't leave my food in the bowl, I take it out and put it on the floor to eat it...I am not sure why mom bothers putting my food in a bowl..I always take it out.

I remember the weather man saying this year was gonna be worse then last year, and mom was watching the news the other night and the records are: last year at this time we had already accumulated 39.8" of snow and the temps were bitterly cold and below zero for 14 straight days....this year so far we have a total snowfall of 12.6" of snow and no below zero temps at all.

Well, i hope you have a pawsome evening!

Hi MerryBelle
The weekend was relaxing. It rained all day yesterday, so I napped most of the day.

I am so glad it went well with your Mom giving you your fluids. I hope and pray that your numbers are better the next time. I sure am glad that you are feeling well though.

I am keeping you in my prayers - always! Have a super great day. Purrs and hugs, Spanky

Hi Merry Belle
How are you today? How was your weekend? It was really cold Saturday and then it poured Sunday afternoon.
We were startled to her the sander in the parking lot this morning but it was icy early in the day.
Today is nice with temps in the 40s. It will be downhill temperature wise the rest of the week.
We're very happy the New England Patriots won their championship Go PATS!!! On to the Super Bowl!!!
