I think this one is simply in survival mode with three cats in the house. LOL.

Sorry to hear that happen. Around here they speak of cute little chipmunks as rodents and certain types are capable of doing damage.
You will probably need to call a 'wild life specialist' in your area and get advice. We live in the country and they have a few listed here. Check to see if you can find a company close by you to call.
We had a situation in 2011 that I had to call about, and they gave me free advice over the phone.
The animal control division sometimes have traps you can set but have never used one.

Anyone know a good idea to catch a chipmunk? Mom's cat brought, and released, a full grown chipmunk into the house 4 days ago and we still haven't got the darn thing. I can hear it running sometimes but can't see it and that cats seem to have forgotten all about it.....

I don't know if any of your fur-babies watched the kitten bowl on the Hallmark Channel today but my boys loved it. Here they are showing it all day. I am taping it so I can play the video again for my kitties. Check it out if you have the Hallmark Channel. :-)

emoticon Jean, looking forward to having you back!

The full story is in my blog I posted today, but I've had a very busy week with my mom in the hospital and moving her into a new house. She was released yesterday morning. Today is the first day since Wednesday that I have been able to stay home and catch up on a few things and get caught up on my Spark teams.

Good Morning!

I am sitting here ready to take my computer down and I already feel lonesome! I genuinely appreciate all of the warm and loving support and comments that you have passed along! I do so look forward to them each day!

When I finish a few things this AM my computer is going to come down until my new service is up and running Monday of next week (Tuesday latest)! So will talk to you next from NC!

Believe me when I say that I, in truth, look forward to next week when I get back to my friends!

Great news Shari...I am excited too!

Great news: When my lab results were in yesterday...my sodium is up 4 points! While this is still low by medical standards, it sets a really strong possibility that the new regime of chemo is working!

My friend's mom is still in the hospital. They were able to stretch her one artery she has left and widen it some, but there is not much else they can do other than try some new medication. They were going to send her home today, but then were blood sugar went out of control, so they need to get that regulated first.

Chemo...Final day...

I am finished with chemo for the week with no ill effects...not is the least amount! I am eating with absolutely no nausea and no weakness! Will find out on the 13th if that means anything or just a different regime!

The bad news is that Sodium is still 118 (131 minimum is normal) The good news is that it did not drop either...so I have that to be thankful for! Sodium for me is an indicator of the aggressiveness of my cancer and that is why it is so critical. I will still be on fluid reduction to control flushing until it comes up! That is really hard since I have learned that 8 glasses is what I need a day and I am finding that harder to deal with than the food diet! I will also stay on salt tabs until further notice and the oncologist is going “up” to 3800 mg daily from food so I can have some of my cheese! So everything is waiting from here! I can say that I do not have the three day headache that I had nor dizziness just some shortness of breath but even that is less (I think) Off sleep meds (or I should say lack of sleep meds)

To all of my SP friends here... I have never had friends like what I have found here! You keep me up when I am down and going when I want to quit! And you are here everyday for me!! That is priceless!

In slightly less than two weeks I will be in NC with my daughter and sister! 20 years separation is enough and they say they aren't going to lose me again!!!!

That's great that you are not so dizzy, and that you were able to sleep. emoticon

I'm anxiously waiting for news from my best friend Rhonda; her mother was taken by ambulance this afternoon from our local hospital, to a heart center in a bigger city. Things were not looking good at that time. Rhonda gave me a quick call while waiting for her brother to pick her up for the trip to the heart center. Her mother had a heart attack about a year and half ago; they did surgery, but there was so much damage already done they couldn't do much, except hopefully buy her more time. At that time, her doctor said she would probably have a year. I pray that she will recover, but if it is her time, I hope she is comfortable and not in pain.

Short update on fourth chemo:

Nothing new today, only had chemo. I am eager for Friday's results but I can report that while still weak, I have lost most of the dizziness! This should only happen if improving! Slept 6.5 hours!!!!

Timmy had his geriatric exam today at the vet's. He ended up just getting the regular kind of exam though; when they tried to take his blood he got too stressed so he didn't get lab work done. I was told when cats are that stressed, it will affect the blood work so the results won't be accurate, so in that case it's not worth upsetting him. Everything the vet could check though was normal, including his weight.

Good Morning all and Thanks for your support!

Day 1 of the New Chemo and very long week!

I came through just fine. Really is only about 25% of the time that my first chemo regime took, but 2 more days. My sodium had dropped to 120 (norm is 133) and that is why my breathing seems worse and I am so dizzy and head-achy. The hard part of is I won't know until today if I have to take fluids for it or since it is one indicator of aggressiveness of small cells if the Oncologist wants to see if it is responding to the new chemo regime. I also had gained 6 lbs. from fluid retention as my feet are so swollen that they are swollen all the way to my knees. Can't take anything for it though as drugs lower sodium level. Also I have to limit fluids!

I also took all of the support offered with me! It really meant much! Thank you far more than you can ever know! I will try to get an update daily posted to my blog! If I don't know that I know that I am with you!

Hugs all around! emoticon

Hi.. well Monday is here. I am still adjusting to working two jobs. I am tired, but doing well. Churchill has been biting/attacking our legs when we sleep.. I'm so glad I was under the blankets because even with that he nicked me around my ankles. Have a great day everyone. emoticon

Here we go again!

My cancer is back, and so is the shock and fear that came with my first diagnosis. The uncertainties are back, too, as I found out yesterday that the last 21 weeks of chemo and CT scans were unsuccessful and while the cancer did not spread, chemo did not “knock it down”! My oncologist is going to try a new routine Monday with a drug that is used for ovarian cancer. I will have 5 intense chemo treatment days beginning Monday and he promised me that there would be many side affects so once again I wonder about more cancer treatment and about my future. 

Sharing this experience has been essential to helping me cope with having cancer.  Most obviously, it’s therapeutic to confront and write about my fears. Come visit when you can...doing so helps release my anxiety and gives me a sense of control over my life.  But more deeply, writing about cancer gives me a a purpose for my life.  From this terrible disease, I can create and communicate my experiences with others and this is what gives me hope! 

So I ask that you not be afraid of me because you don't know what to say, but rather give me strength to keep on fighting because you have my back!

Earlier this month, I entered a photo of Kallie in a photo contest on a blog called Cat Chat with Caren and Cody. The theme was cats dressed up for a holiday. I entered one I took of Kallie the Christmas of 2010, where she was wearing a collar I made her out of sequins and lace. I found out today I was one of the 5 winners! I will be getting a prize package from Fancy Feast.
I posted the photo I used in my blog today.

Thank you Raquel. The radiation is causing an increase in the pain after each treatment, but that is normal, and a temporary side effect. The treatment causes inflammation and swelling for a few hours. I get a break from it this weekend though. Just 3 more to go next week and I'm done.

I found out last week that the cancer has spread to the bone in my left shoulder. It's been causing a lot of pain down my arm because it's also irritating nerves. The radiation center is great, they got me in right away and started me on radiation treatments last Thursday. I will have a total of 10 treatments and after today's, I will be halfway done. The radiation won't cure the cancer but it should hopefully relieve the pain. I also have to start a new chemo on Tuesday.

Mine was quiet, but good for the most part. I stayed home except for going to church on Sunday.

I bought a new gas stove today, and it will be delivered tomorrow, I'm so excited about it! I will shut Timmy and Kallie in the bedroom before they bring it, since they will have my door open for a while bringing it in and taking the old one out.

Hi everyone,

How was your Memorial Day weekend? Mine was good. I saw family, friends and got to rest and be a couch potato watching movies with Churchill! lol. I went to a birthday dinner for friend at The Lazy Dog Cafe. I hadn't been there in years. I had a Mahi-mahi grilled salad. Delicious and low carb!

Chelsea, I am so sorry your pet sitter was so careless. Your kitties must be so glad you're home!

This is Churchill's catster page if you'd like to visit! :) http://www.catster.com/cats/432764

Have a great day everyone!

Thanks so much, Raquel. emoticon

I had a neighbor take care of my two cats while I was gone (3 1/2 days) and my male cat, Baby, has special dietary needs. I gave him specific directions on how to feed them both and the neighbor didn't do it the way I told him. My cats were SO hungry when I got home and hardly any water in their dish. They are better today and my landlady told me that, in the future, she will connect me to people who love cats and will do a better job. emoticon

We had a severe thunderstorm last night where the skies were lighted up like fireworks there was so much lightning! My male cat, Baby, doesn't really care but my Lucy was just petrified, literally. When I picked her up, she was stiff like a log! I carried her to the walk-in closet, that's her safe place, and she crawled under the clothes and stayed there for 3 hours while the storm raged. She is okay today. We usually get the violent storms in the summer here in Florida but we have been getting them since April, really early this year. emoticon emoticon

Hi everyone,

Shari, glad the storm didn't hit hard. Stay safe!

I took Churchill for a nail trim today. I was able to get him in his cat carrier easily.. which was odd. LoL

We were under a severe thunderstorm warning for awhile this afternoon; all we had in my area though was some heavy rain. The thunder wasn't really even that loud, but loud enough that Timmy spent most of the afternoon under the bed.

Churchill chases his tail too. He lays in the floor and rolls around trying to grab his tail. This morning he was running around excited with his tail all bushy. His tail bushes out when he plays with his toys too. lol. emoticon

When my Lucy was young, she chased her tail thinking it was a foreign object! emoticon

And about clean sheets, shame on me, but when they need changing and it has been a while since I have done it, my cats won't sleep on the bed with me! emoticon It is a queen bed and it is difficult to make and I get lazy..... emoticon emoticon

I don't have anything to make videos with, but if I did, I would get one of Timmy chasing his tail. I haven't seen him do it in a long while, but it was hilarious. He usually does it in the kitchen, but he also likes to do it on a freshly made bed for some reason, lol!

Sometimes Timmy will "fly" around the living room; he'll hop from the window perch, to the chair, then the couch etc; it's like he's seeing how far he can get without actually touching the ground, lol!

And sometimes Kallie will just run as fast as she can from one end of the house to the other, and she'll do that 3-4 times in a row.

Yes!! If a cat wants something REALLY bad, they will find a way - very creative creatures. emoticon

Last night I could have been on America's Funniest Videos. I was playing Sudoku on my Kindle before bed and the cats decided to "fly" everywhere! They were running and "flying" all over the apartment (I have a small place) and when in the bedroom sometimes they flew over my head. I remember just sitting there and still playing my game as if nothing was happening. One gets used to such things with cats. emoticon emoticon

This morning, Churchill got his way and was under the bed when I left for work. I didn't have time to lure him out with treats because I was running late. When I opened my bedroom door, I tried to block him but he squeezed himself between my leg and the door and ran towards the bed. LOL

Good morning,

Wishing everyone and your kitties a great day! Churchill was very vocal this morning because he wanted to be in my bedroom. But I like the door shut while I'm at work and was on my to work. He wasn't thrilled about that. He has the whole rest of the apartment to himself but lately prefers to sleep under my bed. emoticon

Hi everyone!

I am sorry I haven't been here lately but have had a moderate migraine for 5 days and being on the computer makes it worse.

My male cat does okay with thunder but my female hides the whole time. Here in Florida we get plenty of thunderstorms so I let them do what makes them feel safe.

We are getting some rain now, it started late this afternoon, shortly after I got home from grocery shopping. Really feeling tired now, so I'll be turning in early tonight. Looking forward to getting settled into bed and cuddling with the kitties and doing some reading.

Thank you, there's no side effects from the blood transfusion. It takes about 24 hours before I notice a difference in the fatigue when I have them.

We are under a wind advisory today. The wind is making it feel very cold. We've been getting some snow too.

We had some thundershowers yesterday that started around the time I came home from the hospital (nothing serious, just had to have a blood transfusion.) Timmy afraid of thunder; usually both kitties meet me a the door when I come home but when there are storms Timmy hides under the bed. I was in the house for about a minute before I even saw him, he very timidly came out of the bedroom and was looking around like "is it ok to come out now?" I always feel bad when it's stormy if it happens when I can't be at home with them.

My male cat who is on a special diet, is being extra picky lately and it is very difficult because he can only eat certain things or he can die so it has been stressful for me. I am going to do some research and see if there is another flavor for his condition since when he is happy, we all are! emoticon emoticon

There is a Fancy Feast wet chicken in a can that my cats lick their lips for hours afterwards. I only give it to them twice a week as it is higher in fat content. They are soooo spoiled!

IF you feel you need to do it, try new flavors. Maybe their taste preferences have changed. If not, tell the vet and maybe you can try the Blue Moon wet food, the same brand as your dry food.

They used to like it but only classic style beef, liver, turkey and chicken. Now they just pick at it.

Linda, when my cats ate Fancy Feast, I remember there are different types (e.g., chunky; paste; stringy) plus all kinds of flavors. Try different combinations and you will fine what they like best. My cats now don't eat Fancy Feast because my male cat is on a special diet and they both eat it. Let us know how it goes! emoticon

My cats eat dry food but I do give them some wet food for dinner. I mix it in with a little bit of dry food. They have their last meal of the day at 5pm, and believe me, they let me know when 5 o'clock gets here, lol!

They like the Fancy Feast cans, but I also give them Friskies. Timmy refuses to eat the new variety of the canned Friskies, the "Mornings" with the egg and cheese in it; can't really blame him, it doesn't look too appetizing.

they do drink their water and are healthy. I give them Blue Buffalo dry. I guess they just love the taste. I might mention that my little guy, Captain, does eat his wet Fancy Feast... spoiled kitties!

My vet suggested the same thing and now that I have introduced wet food, my cat begs for it. I guess all kitties are different just like us when it comes to food. As long as your cats are good water drinkers, they should be fine. My vet only suggested wet food because its extra moisture for his kidneys. Its good they like their dry food. =)

Hello, I have not posted in a while. My cats love their dry food but the vet wants them to eat more wet. Even though I give them Fancy Feast, they still prefer their dry food. They nibble a bit on the canned and then eat the dry. I have tried removing the dry, but they still won't eat the wet and it dries and looks disgusting then I have to flush it down the garbage disposal.
Any suggestions?

Shari, I laughed when I read your post. Even though my cats drive me crazy at times, it is fun to also remember and share their silly and fun antics. emoticon
