Ok as the oldest I have been chosen to check in and let our friends know what is going on. It is now 12 days until we all head to our new home in Arizona...countdown time.....
Mom and Dad have been busting their you know whats to get everything packed, of course Mom did most of the things before Dad even started, now he thinks she has to help too...she is because she wants to get it done so they last few days they can relax. They have finally finished cleaning out the garage, lots to donate, junk and take to their daughters. Lots of stuff in there and just think most of it was there for years and years...not anymore, Mom says no more. Been taking things to be recycled, Dad took 2 car loads of electronics, next will be paint and shredding places.
Our house is full of boxes now, not much room for the monsters to run around, I just stay in the closet, Mom says it is better for me so I don't get upset or stressed.
I went to the vet on Monday for my blood work one last time to check on how my thyroid and kidneys are doing and we are happy to report my numbers are right where they are suppose to be, so I am doing good.
As for Kody so far he seems to be doing OK, Mom has been letting him spend time on his leash in the morning before they get busy, them in the afternoon and early evening he is in the cage.
Well that is about it for now from all of us, we will check in before we leave, but Mom says we can't be here to play until we move.
Soon we will be reporting on our new adventure in our new house..guess you all can't wait to hear how it went...soon we will be putting Arizona pictures of us in our house.
Wishing you all a HAPPY EASTER! we send our love and lots of hugs
Xena, rest of us kitties and Mom

Hello friends well I have to tell you that Mom and Dad left us once again to go to Arizona, but we did fine except the dogs got out of their corrals in the kitchen...bad dogs
Mom and Dad went over to see our new house now that it is completed, to sign papers not sure what that means but that is what they did.
Mom was so excited to see the house, she loves it, of course they picked it out and all of the things that went into it, but wait she doesn't see the refrigerator very important item to have...builder was upset that it wasn't there, it is arriving today...oh thank goodness!
Mom came home told me she saw my special walk in closet that I will have my bed in to be out of the way of all the others. It is big she told me like another room and it even has shelves just for me if I want.
We also have a big bay window in Moms room that we will all get to hang out on our cat trees and beds, it looks in the back yard not the front like here. Everything is so different, Mom wants to make it as easy for us to get used to.
Mom took lots of pictures she will put a few on my page for you all to see. Mom and Dad have to go back on 4/6 to the 10th to get some things done before we all move in and find painters to paint a better paint, water softener because water is very hard there.
They also have to pick up their new crossover they ordered, they will drive Daddy's car over filled with our stuff for when we first get there until the movers arrive. They will leave Dads car there and drive back in their new Escape, just think we will have a new car to ride in. Mom is going to sell her car since it has the most miles on it..she is sad not to have her own car, but life will be different there, she will have to learn to drive the new car...Dad will eventually trade in his car and they will get a smaller car to get around in like go to the vet or run to the store.
So lots is going on here, Mom has so much on her mind and lots to do so as it gets closer to our move the less time she will have to let us on here.
We are sorry we have missed so much, we are saying our prayers for those in need, sad to hear of those that have made their journeys, wishing all happy birthdays, gotcha days and concats to all that we have missed and will miss...Mom says she will try to let us on to see what is up, but it will be hard until after we move!
I go to the vet on Monday more blood will taken so they can see how my thyroid is doing and if they will have to adjust my pill...so far I am doing OK with it.
Hugs to all from all of us....
Xena, Mom and family

Hi my friends it has been awhile, so many things going on here at our house we don't get much time if any lately...
OK reason for coming here today Moms letting me tell you about my vet visit and check up. Of course as most of us don't like going to the vet I am no different. But I got to ride in my new carrier, on side it opens and folds out so I can see more and get more air. What a nice new carrier it is for our long ride over to our new home Mom wanted me to get used to it, I do like it especially after I saw my vet.
I lost almost 2 lbs, Mom was concerned, but thought it is because I am loosing my muscle mass not sure what that is or means. Dr. Kathy thought it might me my thyroid, I had to give more blood so they could check my thyroid and see how my kidneys are doing. Well I now have hyperthyroid along with CRF...boy is this ol lady starting to fall about, don't think so, I am doing well other wise, my kidney numbers are good right where they should be that is good news. I still have my heart murmur but it hasn't changed so no worry there, just have to have it checked once a year unless Mom notices any changes in me.
It was an expensive visit, but worth it Mom says and as always she is happy she has insurance on me...I am beginning to be an expensive kitty.
But wait it isn't over, I don't get to go home, no I don't I have to go with Mom to a paint store so she could get some paint samples they can take them over to our new house, they want to have someone paint inside with a better paint before we move over there. Then on to her dog clients house so she could walk the doggies. I got to go in and had to stay there while Mom went out to walk the doggies, one tried to sniff my carrier. Hiss hiss!!!!! then to the bank, Mom ran it and right back out! She parked right where she could see the car, she usually doesn't leave me in the car, but it was not busy and just a deposit.
Finally I got to go home, happy that I had the bigger carrier I could see out and feel the air, but more happy to be home. The rest of the day I was in my safe place in Moms closet.
Today Mom had her dr. appt. and on the way back before walking dogs and taking care of cats Mom wonderpurr Mom went to my vet and got my medication. I haven't got my pill yet Mom will give it to me this evening. I have to go back in on the 31st to give them more blood so they can see how my thyroid is doing, they may have to adjust my medication.
Moms says great just as we are getting ready to move and get a new vet we have to deal with this too, we just hope I will be OK after the next visit until Mom can get me to my new vet...
By the way Mom found one and our Vet here is from Arizona, called her vet friend and she told her that our new Vet is really good so that is one worry off of Moms mind...but she has to see for herself..
Well that is it from here, sorry it is long, but we want you to know how I am doing...Next week Mom and Dad go to Arizona to see our house for the first time, Mom is so excited, then sign all the papers...it will be ours! Time is flying by and soon we will be Arizona kitties...
wishing you all the best, purring and praying for those in need and know we do check in and read the diaries to see how our friends are doing. One day soon Mom will have more time to let us back on here and lets hope by then we all will know something about our beloved catster
