Tough Decision..

Mommy has a very tough decision..tonite my Meme is going to talk to Mommy seriously about having me euthanized..i cant go to the litter box and my feet are all stinky and dirty from it..i also wont eat by myself and am just so weak..Mommy doesnt want to go to the vet man with a live cat and leave with a dead one..she also doesnt want to have to tell me good bye..But then again she knows the next time she sees me it will be for eternity and that makes her happy..she also knows i wont be in any pain any more..But Mommy just doesnt know what to do..she doesnt want me to suffer but doesnt want to loose me..do any of you guys have experience with this and any advice?? I think its time for me to go home for a while then Mommy will join me soon...

More info about my "seizure"

First off, last night around 3 am i crawled on the coach with my papa. I thought he would like some company. I didnt leave his room till mommy carried me out the next day around 4 pm. But anyways, around noon my eyes rolled back in my head and my body kind of went limp. papa didnt no what was happening but when he told my great meme later she said it sounded like i had a seizure or a stroke. When my mommy got home later, she said i seemed okay and now i have a full belly of baby food oatmeal.....my great meme also brought me some meow mix yet cause i really liked the kind boogers, hondo, and fido sent me. It was delicious. But, i barely touched this. Mommy thinks i might have been nervous cause i dont like people watching me eat, and everyone was staring at me! Thanks for your prayers and keep em coming Strong!
So far i have recieved to moneys and want t say thanks for them! I recieved a check from River, Dexter, Molly, Alice, and the Magnificent Seven and i am so thankful! I also recieved a money order from the Meowers! They will both be used to pay off my large some of vet bills unless i get enough to pay for a round of kemo..kemo can save me but its very very $$$$...thanks for the money so far and the candles will be lit! Take Care!

PS today im not doing to good and they think i may have had a seizure..prayers please!

My family..

I've had some kitties ask me who all was in my family so ill name them all for you...

First, theres my Papa...he babysits me while Mommys at school and he used to give me treats all the time when i still at them..he also is one of my favorite people cause im around him the most

Meme is second...she is definetly my favorite person. Shes the kind of person who doesnt talk to you much, but when she does you listen. I luv my Meme and she calls me baby Libby and buys my food, thats important you know.

Aunt Jamie is next......She was my first mommy and she visits about once a week.

Aunt Ashley is fourth...she was my second mommy and still talks to me sometimes..mommy also asks her to give me my medicine occasionally cause Aunt Ashley is the best at giving medicine..

Then theres Abby a.k.a. Mommy. I luv my mommy almost as much as my meme. She pets me, sleeps with me, lays under the Christmas tree with me, buys me treats and presents, fights for me, takes pictures of me, and helps me blog. Isn't she a very good mommy?

Well theres my family! Theres also another Aunt Becky and a cousin Breanne who visit but only twice a year..olnce on my birthday and once at Christmas..


The vet..

I went to the vet today to get my pills cause the vet called my papa....when we got there the vet said i had a little more pink in my gums and that was good! Then he gave me a vitamin shot and said i need to start taking baby vitamins and eating more. He told my papa i would prolly have 3 months....that means ill make it to Christmas! Im on steroids now, and im gonna have some high vet bills and so mommy thought of a fundraiser to help pay for my bills. You can light a candle in memory or honor of a friend/cat of yours for a one dollar donation. Mommy will light the candle and add the money to my fund. Just send the dollar will the name of the person or kitty you are honoring/remembering to P.O. Box 542 Wellston, Ohio 45692. This is a good way to remember or honor loved ones this holiday. Overall, they think im doing a little better and God can still help me! Please purchase a candle light today to help me so i can get better!

Christmas Tree Fun!

Like i said me and mommy laid under her Christmas tree for hours! Of course, mommy fell asleep and Aunt Ashley snook in with the camera...Oh Well at least we both look beautiful! I think myself that we should be on a postcard...opinions?Do you like the black and white effect? It makes my calico ness look pretty according to mommy....What do you think??

By the way..

I forgot! Heres a picture of me and my papa......this was about a week ago. I also have a video of me and him on my catster! Hes scratching my chin, and it feels really good!



Good news!

Today im eating and i even used the litter box all by myself! Ive mostly napped with papa all day while meme abby and ashley put decorations up outside..i love this time of year! Did i tell you guys last night me and mommy layed under her Christmas tree for hours? It was so fun! Shes going away tonight and wont be back till late so ill prolly hang w/papa.......its fun cause we just sleep in his room undisrupted! just a question..do you guys believe in miracles?

A little MIRACLE to brighten your day...

As you guys no i havent eaten by myself in probably three-four weeks....today i was hungry and mommy wasnt awake so i went to my food bowl..there was no food! I figured Mommy was given up on me so i wouldnt go away..finally papa brought me some ham...boy was it good! I was eating it faster than he could put it down... and then i drank water from my bowl! Meme's rushing to the store now to buy me food and formula, the purrs are working!

We called the vet today....my white blood cell count is way different then whats its supposed to be and i probably have leukimia or lymphoma..... the palentoligist is calling at 4:30 to give more details....if mommy doesnt help me blog later its prolly cause shes mad.......

My new sweater...

The vet mann hasn't called yet but he's supposed to before the end of the night. Mommy took a picture of me in my new sweater...what do you think? Im still not doing to good and yesterday mommys sister was trying to talk her into euthinizing me but my mommy said under no circumstances whatsoever...dont i have a good mommy? See has to feed me everyday and today she started making me walk a little to try to build back some muscle...some people don't have faith i will get better but the vet man mommy and papa do and thats all that matters....papa says maybe ill be a Christmas miracle....... keep me in your purrs there helping!

Great nights sleep!

For once, i stayed in my basket with mommy all night. Usually my basket flips out of the bed while shes sleeping and its not to comfortable on me so i get up and leave. Last night, it flipped but mommy was awake and put it back up. She then realized its been flipping cause the half of the basket with me in it is hanging over the edge of her bed and the empty part is on her bed. So, she turned it around where the empty part was hanging out....then when she woke up this morning i was still in my basket with mommy! Now dont worry about my basket flipping by the way, i landed on a pillow and the blankets in the basket cushioned my fall! It was a short fall too....

and yesterday mommy got out things i love...Christmas Presents!!! I think they were all for me but mom said they werent......hmmmmmmmmm but they were all over her bed and i love diddly uv them!!!!mrow gotta go hide under the coach some more...thats very fun!
