I'm back!

Thanks again to everyone for the support. The kitties on the web, and the people they choose to honor with their kitty presence, are just so great. We did get the bloodtests back...thyroid is down, but kidney is up. That is some good news,& some bad news. But it is partially due to the fact that I was convincing mom I was taking the Benazipril (kidney helping medicine) when in fact, I was hiding them in my mouth. Mom didn't find this out until she found a pile of the little white pills behind the curtain, where I was hiding them. (Crazy, but true.)Darn! So now she has started crushing it and putting it into my food. I'll have to find a way to get back at her. For now, however, she is forgiven, as she brought home a King Crab leg for me tonight, and I have to say, yum,yum,yum! Not supposed to have that much protein, but every once in awhile, an old guy's gotta have a little fun. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It's back to work for mom tomorrow, so I should at least be able to get a decent nap. (here's just a silly little video of me exploring my garden.)
Lotsa love,

Sublime Saturday

Hi Everyone,
    Mom first wanted to thank everyone for all the kind words. She gets so weepy, it is embarrassing, but she & I do thank you for all the purrs and good thoughts--it was quite unexpected and overwhelming, in the best of ways.
   It has been mostly a good day.  Earlier in the day, mom took me to the v-e-t, for a blood test. I did manage to get in a few kitty swear words to those trying to take the blood, but unfortunately they did not understand. Don't know the results of the blood test yet...but as a kitty, I always think positive, and as one my mom's favorite author's says, kitties are always in the "present." So, at this present moment life is good. There is a lovely monsoon thunderstorm rolling through the desert tonight. I'm one of those weird kitties that loves wind. I think I was "Super Kitty" in my last life. Just need a cape, with an "SK".    Hope you all are doing well, and thanks again.

Livin' Large

Okay, so mom has had a ton going on...new school year...tough start...30 kids...but the main reason she wasn't writing was-- she took me to the vet as I was howling, and not doing very well. 
Granted, I'm over 20, and she knew the news couldn't be good....and it was not good.   The vet told mom I have serious thyroid and kidney problems. So I have started on chicken flavored meds twice/day. Mom didn't want her remaining memories of me to be sad ones, so she was not going to write about all of that, but the mom's dad, convinced her once again to write about the most interesting thing in her life, ME :). Thank God for her Dad. Anyhoo, I have been faithfully (somewhat) taking my meds, and mom has noticed a marked improvement. I go in for bloodtests again in about a week, and mom is encouraged, as I have been much more back to my old grouchy self. We all know our old bodies can't live forever, but old souls like ours will go on an on! Much love to you all.
