After the brake

Mom says we might be done with our brake, but there is still lossa bad stuffs going on here.

  • someone we care about, has cancer. Cancer makes people very sad I learned
  • today is the last day of our lees, we have no place to move cuz of me, but mom wont giff me up
  • moms medical stuffs, its badder than she thought. She cant work probably forever
  • monies of course, who duzzen haff this problem

Iz been a rough week and a bit, but the good mews I am sure you haff seen on my FB. I climbed the chair when mom wasnt looking, and i did it again today too. I am layin on it now doin diaree while mom is preparing dinner stuffs. MOL! This chair… IS MINE NOW! (Don’t worry, even though I climb down by the china cabinet, mom puts down my crash mat incase i get excited to chase Star and fall off instead)
I haff been walkin more too now since my last needles. I was a real good girl mommy said at the Drs too. Mom is gonna do an interview with her for my pages. We luvs her cuz she was the only one to listen and believe in me as much as mommy does. I see her next on Aug 16, I am eggsited actually to see her, she always makes me feel so much better!
Knigget with my blankey
I got my comfy, lovey, blankey from Knitting4Kits last week. We all fight over it though…
Me & my blankey
It was hand made JUST fur me, but mom said we share in this house. Pfff..
Mom is haffin some nerves pain, i am gonna go purr and mew at her to make her smile.
xoxo Merida
Star with my blankey

Heets are done, new toys and more!

I am done my heets, an I might be done with diarrheas too. My tummy feels bettur now!

I gots new toys! We all gots a tunnel, 4 sparkle ballz (stars fave), a kickaroo, an jelly chewy toys! I like the chewy toys bestest so far. They are nommy. That eevil red dot is back too. That bugger reely sneeks up on me when my playtime blankey is out! :/

We haff been practising on my dizzeeness. Mom puts me in high places an holds me. It makes me wobble fur a bit, but then it goes away. I get to be up on the cowsh now an the bed too. Laat nite i sleeped on mommys lap for a while! It feels good to be like the other kittiez sometimez.

I see my Dr on munday fur lazer and needuls. Mom had her needuls today an is restin now. Mom sayz i haffta be not so spunky affur needuls cuz i tense up again MOL. I feel so good affur that i haffa show mom i can pouns reel far! =^.^=

Iz almost playtimez! I should go snuggle an purr at mom to let her know.

I haff learned diareeah…

 

So this week I gotted the diareeah. Mom had to call my Dr cuz it didnt go away in a couple days. Mom kept me inside sins friday, she finks its cuz i eet the stickz outside when she doesnt look. I wont let her know she is rite. We haff a mountin ash tree, an thats poisin fur kitties so mom alwayz tells me not to eet the berries an little stickz, but lets face it.. they taste good an so i swallow before she can get them away. Nom noms! I dont fink ill eet them again tho cuz i really dont like diarreah. Iz.. not so fun. So mom is keeping me in until the bad poops go away. 🙁

We haff had so much tunder and heet! We haff warnings again today for bad wether. I couldnt find a hidey spot last nite at 3 when we had tunder booms. Even my bruddur and sistur were runnin and they went to go save mommy. They kept her safe all nite!
I am haffin heets rite now too, so i am just cooing an lookin fur a boyfurend rite now. Oh, an sleepin. So i know it hasnt been good videohs. I am busy getting into too much trubble rite now.
I should go bite the dog an see if i cant get him in trubble.

Finally get to do diaree!

I couldnt do my diaree because we haff had so many storms an rain and floods! So mom said it was ok to pounce onto the computer an do my diaree reel quick before storms move in again.

Mom told me about a poem dat was written by Edgar Allan Poe all about a Raven, because there is a raven who yells at me when we go outside to play an so now I cant go outside much to play because he scares me so bad my body tenses up an i just lay there. I told mom to tell Edgar that nobody should write poems about mean birds or people! She laughed at me…

I was doin heats this week, so I had to pee on the floor an let the boys know I am here. It hurt moms back an neck she said cuz she hadda clean it. She put that diapurr thingy on me again, an I pulled the tabs and yanked it off. I don’t need a diapurr, I am sure she may get the hint sometime soon.
Mom tried to do pikshurs with me a few days ago too, and i RAN. She says she wants them fur some calendar or something but I hate pikshurs so its not like i am gonna stop and smile fur her. She said she wuz happy with what she got or something… i wasnt listening, I had ants to beat up, and mouse toys to eat.

I haff a Dr app on Monday, so mom is gonna talk to my Dr and see if its ok to share my food recipe. A raw food diet is very special, an it has to be done perfectly, and has to haff the right vitamins and right amounts. A lot of people say it takes lots of monies and mom should buy it offline but her words are “how do i know whats in it with all these recalls?! I make her food so i know whats in it and that she gets what she needs everyday, properly” because I guess people make raw foods online but unless you know the right amounts of stuff, you could be hurting your pets. Pets wiff medical problems need diff stuff too, so it is sort of made just for me, its MeridaMade brand food! MOL

Catfacts I haff learned…

I just wantid to share some of the stuffs i have been learning:

Cat facts by Merida

1) When using da potty, DIG DIG DIG! China isn far, so try to dig to China an make sure you make a big BIG mess while you do it!

2) Hairballs are bess to puke at nite. Mommees and daddees step in them and go EWWW. It makes me MOL

3) Pretend you hurted yourself. Limp, or pretend you cant walk, and stuffs when they look at you. Yous get SO much luvs if you do this! Sometimes, even treats!

4) Scream when yous are alone. They come running! When they come running, make sure to purr an roll around reely cute.

5) If yous dont like the food, do a hunger strike. Then, they gives you bettur and new foods.

6) You haff claws fur a reason, so make sure to use them when they are trying to make yous do things yous dont wanna do. They back off quick an yous get to do whatever yous want again!

7) Complain an get them to clean the potty more than one time a day. We dont needa be walkin in the ickies.

8) Scream an yell a few times a day fur nothin. They give you treats an extra luvs

9) You haffa be messy when you eat too. Then maybe one time, be clean. You get treats

10) Try an keep your mommy or daddy on YOUR schedule. Theirs doesn work.

I can tell you, i saw my Dr on Monday an she finks i may be walking this year. She says the akupunksur is doin reel good! I don haff the spazm in my neck no more, or my low back. I also gained muscle tone in my back legs cuz i go outside an mom walks me more. She says it hurts her back an neck but i hurt too, pfffft mom is weak!

We haff so much flooding near where I lives, I needa check in on my furrpal Hector the livershunt cat, cuz he lives where the reel bad floods are, in southern alberta. Our river in edmonton is getting high an we haffa watch it. Mom has emergensee kits just in case, but we live on the high part so we should be ok. But even roads are flooding in the city. I cant go out as much cuz it rains, so I haffa play inside but it SOO borrin! Mom cant work on my auction stuff so we watch cartoons, do walkin, an have playtimez on a stupid blanket. Is really not the same. But she takes me to see the birdees from the bedroom window, they fly SO fast by the window! I am growin my whizkurs back too so my balance is gettin a bit better, not as much circles. Ugh, those make me dizze!

Its food time now, I promised mom if she took me outside before the rain I would finally eet my breakfast. =^.^=

PS – Mom lied. She bought more braclits, so we haff 100 more to support wobbly cat love! She is funny MOL

 

Tornados, tunder, an hail?! OH MY!

We hadda putt off diary because we had tornados yesterday. It was SO scaredy. Loud booms, an bangs. I was shaking so bad, but mom holded me an had me in a blankey to keep me safe.

TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!!! I AM NOW 1 YEAR OLD!! YAAAY  

I was tiny a year ago

 

Mom is gonna giff me chicken she says an maybe a new mouse! We cant do anything special for my birthday because mom and dad have appointments to see the lawyer and to see some houses that said us pets can come along too and live there. Paws crossed for luck for them today! its ok, i don’t mind because mom said i need to be humble.. an that means not being greedy or spoiled she says.

I am so dizzy an tired an i cant tell mom why. All i know is when i wake up, i am so dizzy! if I lay down its not ad bad, but when me an mom go walkin then i start doin circles with my head, then my eyes do circles too an my tummy feels icky. Its not fun, an i hope it goes away soon, its no fun sleeping all the time! I got stuffs from the Dr for icky tummy an it helps.

Mom made me another catnip sock toy, it crinkles and is full of… CATNIP!! MOL I love those. They are really fun. I think she made it fur me to make up for putting a diaper on me. YEAH, she did… she put a DIAPED on me. I don’t know what she was thinking. What am I? A month old?! Pfff… Even at a month old I could use the potty. I just need to make sure the boys know where I am when I am having heats, its not a big deal.

Did you see my outside videos?! I ask mom every morning after breakfast to go outside. Sometimes I don’t even let her drink her coffee MOL. It is SO much fun out there though! I get to dig, OMC DIGGING IS SOOOO GREAT!! I get to pounce too and it doesn’t hurt as much. I did a hand stand the other day, mom said I held it good. The birds bug me though. We have a really big black bird and he yells at me from really high up. I can’t catch him, so sometimes I yell back. If he ever comes at me, ill eat his feathers! He is so mean doing that and chasing the other birds away. He is SO noisy!

Ohhhhhh yeah, its outside time!!
