Our Sweet Rosie Is An Angel Now

The following is an entry from Rosie's Diary. We'll write more later, but for now it's too hard for Mom. We want to thank all our furiends for the love and support you have shown to our family over the past months while Rosie struggled with her fading health. We love you all so very much.

At approximately 10:40 this morning, as I lay curled safely in my momma's arms, I began my journey to The Rainbow Bridge.

I just wanted to let you know that I made it home.
The journey wasn't an easy one, but it didn't take too long.

Everything is so pretty here, so white, so fresh and new
I wish that you could close your eyes and that you could see it too.

Please try not to be sad for me.
Try to understand God is taking care of me...
I'm in the shelter of His hands.

Here there is no sadness, no sorrow, and no pain.
Here there is no crying and I'll never hurt again.

Here it is so peaceful when all the angels sing.
I really have to go for now... I've just got to try my wings.



Rosie is Kneading Purrs

The following is from Rosie's Diary. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

So, I went back to Dr. Johnson on Wednesday. I am down to 4.4 pounds. The nice girl at the vet's office gave me more fluids and showed Momma how so she can do it for me at home. Tonight is supposed to be the first time, but Momma is a little bit afraid of hurting me, because I'm so thin and she's never done it before. She keeps putting it off for another hour.

I have been eating - not much -but a little bit here and there is so much better than nothing.

I'm driving my whole family crazy tonight. I am just meowing and meowing and meowing, really loudly and non-stop. I've been doing this for the past hour and a half. Mom holds me, I still meow. She gave me some tuna, which I ate most of, and then I went back to meowing. Momma and Dad sure don't know what to do to make me stop, and really, I'm not sure even I know what it is that I want.

Momma is crying alot and wondering. Things just aren't going well with me.

The mood here tonight is pretty somber. None of feel like playing much, so we're just going to go snuggle with Momma.


RIP Daddy

We just found out that Daddy made his journey to The Rainbow Bridge on the 19th. Our hearts go out to Cesar and his family at this sad time.
Daddy had the most wonderful kind of life and he is truly a hero. He will be missed and remembered by so many who have his pawprints etched in their hearts.

Fly free, Daddy. And thank you. ♥


That's What Friends Are For

And I never thought I'd feel this way
And as far as I'm concerned
I'm glad I got the chance to say
That I do believe I love you

And if, I should ever go away
Well then close your eyes and try
To feel the way we do today
And then if you can remember

Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For/In good times and/in bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

Well you came and opened me
And now there's so much more I see
And so by the way I thank you

And then, for the times when we're apart
Well then close your eyes and know
These words are coming from my hearts
And then if you can remember

Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For/In good times and/in bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for


The Results Are In.

Here is the Diary entry that Rosie posted today....

I got my test results today and I am very Hyperthyroidic. I also have a bit of kidney disease, but Dr. Johnson told Momma that it isn't real bad and it is something she wants to "keep an eye on". She said it is not uncommon for "olde furts" like me.

Now, the part momma is really upset about is that my vet's office is now closed until Monday and Dr. Johnson apparently forgot to phone in my prescription! She FORGOT! HOW could my vet have forgotten to phone in my medicine??!!! She just got done telling Momma how very HyperT I am! The normal range is 0.8 - 4.0 and I came in at 6.2 .

Momma did get me the k/d food that Dr. J recommended, so at least I can get started on that, but I was sooo looking forward to starting to feel better soon.

Momma got the phone book out and found one Nancy Johnson and she called it and left a message on the answering machine. Hopefully it's the right Nancy Johnson and she will phone in my prescription. If it hasn't been done by tomorrow morning, Momma is going to call the Emergency Veterinary Hospital that is open 24/7 and ask them if they can help us out.

Momma is livid! I keep telling her to calm down. It's only a couple more days, but I can tell she really hates to see me have to feel crummy for longer because of some dumb human mistake.

At least now we know for sure what is wrong with me and now we can start working on getting me all fixed up. . . . . . . . as soon as I get my medicine!

I guess there isn't much more I can do right now except go take a little nap.
So, that's what I'm going to do!

Purrs, Rosie ♥


Rosie Went To The Vet Today

February 3rd 2010 11:57 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ]

Rosie went to see Dr. Johnson today. Momma was reading, right on Catster in "Cats 101", about Hyperthyroidism and she realized that Rosie has all the symptoms. Here's what she read ;


Feline hyperthyroidism is the most common feline endocrine disorder. It occurs when the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone, usually in senior cats.

Symptoms include increased appetite, unexplained weight loss, increased thirst and urine output, vomiting, lethargy, weakness, and a dull coat. It's important to see the vet if these symptoms are present because the condition places excessive stress on the heart and other organs when left untreated.

There are three treatments to which most cats respond very well: medication with Methimazole, surgery, and radioiodine treatment. Of the three, radioiodine treatment is the most effective. It's non-invasive and returns more than 95% of treated cats to normal thyroid function with no further treatment or medication required.

Dr. Johnson agrees that Rosie probably does have HyperT, and she is testing Rosie for it. The results should be in by tomorrow or Friday.

Hopefully we'll get some answers and our Rosie will be on her way to feeling good again! We'll update when we get her test results.

Thank you to all our furiends who have been purring and pawraying and sending PotP for our Rosie Tot. It's a blessing to have furiends who care and we love you all.

Tagged Again! Jolanda Got Us! :D~

[ Leave A Comment ]

So, it looks like we get to play again! Our very, very sweet and pawsome furiend, Jolanda, tagged us to play Valentine Tag! Thanks, Jolanda! We looove to play Tag!
*bouncing up and down, tails wagging furiously*

The rules for Valentine's Tag are to list, in our Diary, 5 things we love about our life. Then we are to list 5 furiends that we will tag to play along, letting them know they've been invited to play by sending them a pawmail or rosette.

We're going to switch it up a bit this time.
Since there are 5 of us Tots, this time we will each list one thing that we love about our life. (Last time we played, we listed 5 things that we all love about our life.)

So, here we go!

1. Penny Ann: I love my "toof pick"! It's a Nylabone with a nubby,blue, rubber sleeve around the middle of it. As soon as I finish eating, I go straight to my Toof Pick and chew on it to clean out any kibble that is stuck in my cheeks. For years, I would go to Momma and she would rub my cheeks to clean them out for me, but then she bought the Toof Pick and now I can clean my cheeks all by myself! :D~

2. Zelda Marie: I love to show my squeaky, dumbbell toys to Rosie! I have one that looks like a basketball and one that looks like a soccer ball. I have had them for almost 2 and 1/2 years and I am careful never to break them.
I pick one up and wiggle my butt over to wherever Rosie is and I give her a close-up view of my beloved toy! Sometimes it is such a close-up view that I accidentally bonk Rosie in the face over and over and over! I can tell Rosie thinks my toy is just the bestest. She doesn't even run away or slap me! She always stays right there and sometimes she even closes her eyes. She must be hoping real hard that Momma will get HER a squeaky dumbbell toy someday! :D~

3. Link: I love getting into Gramma's stuff! I paw through her purse and her work bag and take out all her stuff and play with it. If Gramma leaves a pair of her jeans or her jacket out on the couch or the bed where I can reach, I take all the stuff out of her pockets. I never empty Mom's or dad's or Grampa's pockets... only Gramma's! I LOOOVE my Gramma's stuff! :D~

4. Teddi Sue: I love swimming! I could "swim" fur hours! Doesn't matter if it's a lake, a river, my kitty pool, a big puddle or the bath tub. I just love to splash with my paw and bite the water! I go 'round and 'round and 'round....
I have a video of me swimming in my kitty pool. You're welcome to watch it and see how much I love to swim! :D~

5. Rosie: I love tuna! I do not like it when there are large chunks in my tuna. I won't eat the large chunks, so Momma carefully mashes it up really well with a fork before she gives it to me. There's just nothing in this world quite as heavenly as mashed up tuna!

Here are the furiends we're going to tag:

1. Miss Ella NPC "Cinderella"

2. Esky

3. Angus

4. The Cali Crew

5. Scooter PAWS

We hope you'll join us for an exciting game of Valentines Tag! Have fun! :D~

Rosie Tot Isn't Doing Well

January 25th 2010 3:03 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ]

Our kitty Rosie has been having a ruff time as of late. She's been on heart medicine for almost 3 and 1/2 years and the past few weeks she's been coughing and throwing up alot.
Right now Momma is waiting for tomorrow to get here when Rosie's vet, Dr. Johnson, will be back in her office and can give Momma a call. It may be time to increase or change Rosie's medication.
Rosie will continue to update her Diary.
Any pawrayers and Power of the Paw our furiends could spare would be tremendously appreciated.

Woofs, Wuff, Purrs & Taterwags, Penny, Zelda, Teddi Sue, Link & Rosie ♥
