Arrival Story: About two months after taking Finnegan into my home I realized he was a much more social cat than my previous little girl and he needed a friend. I had never owned more than one cat at a time before but decided to get him a girlfriend. I went to the local shelter where I know they are very clean, loving and responsible there. I looked at all the kitties and Lacey was the very last one we spotted. She was hiding at the top of her cat tree but came down to see us the minute we came over to her. She was friendly, purring and just a delight. So I adopted her and within 1 day her and Finney were inseperable. They love each other very much and I'm so lucky to have them both!
Bio: I call her Googly because she's a ball of fun and cracks me up constantly. She has these crazy eyes when she's playing that means she's about to go nuts! She also helps me run my website dedicated to helping kitties with Inflammatory Bowel Disease, pancreatitis, fatty liver and other GI related disorders, http://www.ibdkitties.net/. Lacey is thankfully healthy but my previous kitty Alex lost her battle to these diseases. I also have a blog: http://ibdkitties.blogspot.com/.

Cat of the Day, January 1, 2011
Cat of the Month, Meowing out Loud, February 2011
Whoo hoo! How did this day come around so fast? My goodness time flies when you're living the high life. How are all my friends here in Catsterland? Thank you so much for all the prezzies and well wishes, I love you all so much and I really appreciate it. Not much new around here, grampy is doing okay, hanging in there. Mom is working hard with her IBD support group and playing with us of course. What's new with you guys? Well, I gotta run because it's time for a treat for my gotcha day. Thanks again everybody and we love you! XXOO
Hi everybody! how are ya? I am so sorry we haven't been around and we want to thank you all for the jolly rogers we got. Boy, there were a lot of them! So thank you to everybody. Mom has been extremely busy. She's been driving grampy and grammy around to their doctor's appointments nearly every day for the last two months! Seriously she is pooped! Grampy is doing well in spite of his health problems. He's got congestive heart failure, Afib, prostate cancer that has gone into his bone and some other stuff. They are giving him hormone injections for the prostate cancer and he's afraid he's going to grow boobies. MOL. That probably won't happen though.
Grammy now is having a hard time swallowing and she's got to go for X-rays this coming week. Mom wishes everyone would just stay healthy for awhile! jeez! Mom's health isn't that great lately because of all this running around. She's having really bad migraines (already on medication for it, has been for a long time), and her fibromyalgia is acting up. But all in all things could be worse so we're not going to complain.
Me and Finney are doing just fine and mom finds time to play wiff us and everything. She's a good mommy, she loves us so much. OH!!! Remember the nasty neighbors that were giving mom all kinds of grief? they did a complete 180 and have started being friends with mommy. Yup, out of the clear blue. Mom said hell froze over and that's why they changed their minds, MOL. they're being very nice to mommy now so that's good.
Well, that's about it! Love you guys and just wanted to update you all on the stuff happening.
Love and kisses
Lacey Wacey Bug
Day 2 in the hospital: Just wanted to let you all know mommy just got home from seeing grampy and he’s doing great!! His blood pressure and heart rate are stabilized, his swelling is starting to go down a lot. He ate a full breakfast and a full lunch. He sat up in the chair this morning for 3 hours while they changed his bed and then gave him a bath. He’s going to be there the entire weekend, maybe even through Monday. This is congestive heart failure, it’s nothing to mess around with. So they are controlling it with the Lasix and finding the right combination of meds. They are also going to start him on physical therapy to get his strength back up, so we are really happy about that. We're all so happy to see him like this! Your prayers and purrs are working! Love you all so much!!! Keep purring! XXOO
