Hello friends, we sure miss you all!
We have to say we are sorry we haven't been around but as some of you know we lost our Kandi on the 12th of April suddenly, we found out her kidneys were failing and less than a week later she made her journey to the bridge. Mom is still trying to get over the shock of it all and is grieving her loss...
We have missed so much by not being here we want to send our belated birthday/gotcha day wishes...and our sympathies to our friends that made their journeys to the bridge. Know we think of you all and we hope Mom will feel like being here again real soon....
Before I take my leave and go take my nap I have to let you know I am doing OK, I have lost a little weight which of course concerns Mom. I have been checked by my Vet she put me on food stimulant, I was taking one that made me crazy, Mom didn't leave me, I was all over the place couldn't be still for long, my meow changed, so when Mom picked up Kandi's ashes last week she asked about giving me the pills Kandi was getting to help her eat, the vet said it was OK and to give me the same amount. It is better, I am not as crazy but I do want to eat and eat...but still not gaining weight...Mom is hopeful. Everyone else is doing good, enjoying our beautiful spring weather we are having, but not the winds, so windy every afternoon....and oh yeah the beautiful desert in bloom, it is a sea of yellow where we live and the cactus are blooming too...
Hope you are all doing well and enjoying the spring weather like we are, be well and bless you all
Xena and Mom

Again we are sorry we are not around as so many others, but we are sitting here waiting for the day we get our catster back and we can all have fun. Right now Mom says she finds it boring and sad that no one is around. We loved reading our friends diaries so we knew what is happening, hoping we will have our diaries like now but we can make comments again.
Ok now for me, I went to the vet yesterday my 6 month check up for my kidneys.
Mom bought a baby scale to weight all of us especially me and Tu. Anyway I have lost about a pound since my vet visit in September. Trying to figure out why!
My heart was racing so they decided to take my blood pressure, this was a first, Mom let me go back into my carrier where I felt safe, she was petting and scritching me to help me relax and it worked. My blood pressure was OK.
My blood work for my kidneys about the same, they are a little high but no change for the most part, my white blood cell count is a little high.
Mom talked to the vet about my weight lose which is a concern for all, they figured out that even though I am eating I am not eating enough. So I now get a pill every 3 days to help my appetite and Forti flora to help my tummy and to help me not have the poops that I do have sometimes.
It is tuff being old, Mom agrees....I really am doing good besides loosing weight, I am out more, spend more time with Mom I even get on the bed to lay on Mom.
This kitty is still hanging in there and everyday it amazes Mom how well I am doing. She still worries about me and sometimes she cries because she knows that I will not get better and one day it will be time to let me go, but until then we are enjoying each and everyday, getting lots of love...

Hi friends, wanted to let you all know I am still doing well and maintaining my weight....Mom got us a scale so she doesn't have to take me every month to the vet to get weighed too stressful for me, Mom just calls the vet and tells her. They have to make sure I am not losing too much weight actually keeping my weight, if I do then they have to change my thyroid medication, right now I am getting 1/4 of a pill daily.
Mom is feeding me can food during the day to help me keep on the weight, I am also getting some kitten food to help as well, yes I know I am not a kitten for from it but she thinks it will help me, Zeke likes it too and he is getting feed can through out the day too because he doesn't eat enough.
I am loving my area, I am a lot happier and no Tu Two chasing me through the house like she did in San Diego it stressed me out. Mom brushes me every day, sometimes she has to use the combs to get mats out because now my fur is more oily...it sucks getting older, but mom has to do it so I don't get all matted. I have to say I don't like it when she does that and then I hide in my bed.
Enjoying life and a happy kitty!
