Friday with Fitz: Bear Story

Hi Friends, Fitz here.
Did you all make it through the deep freeze?
I hope so. Anymeow I go in for a Dental tomorrow. Send Purrs

To get my mind off that here is the story of the Christmas Bear
that I promised way back when.

There once was a bear that was really dying to see Santa Paws. He tried and tried but could not think of a way to get to the North Pole. Then, one day, a cranky Old, Old, Old Gray Cat, that was kind of Floppy, yelled out to the bear: Yo bearz! Whut wit chu anymeowz? Yoo wanna visitin da Norther Polez ya gotta mailer ta Santa Claws!
Well the bear had a hard time understanding Budd... the Old Gray Cat. He thought he meant to mail himself rather that send a Christmas Card  with a wish written on it to Santa Paws. The silly bear had to find a big box to send himself in so he went to the  railroad tracks and stole one a fellow was living in. He ran to UPS, the U Plan Sendin store, told them where to pick up the box, ran around the corner and taped himself in. He was soon zooming over Hillndale, thats a bear town, toward the North Pole. 
Santa Paws was beside himself when the UPS plane landed with such a big package. He thought "How nice someone sent me a huge gift." At least he thought that until he found out it was had a large COD due. He paid the man in Cod and said:"Oh well. It must be those parts to make those special toys for all the good kitties. Hey Jumper and Hissten come get this box."
Well as soon as they picked it up the bear fell out the bottom and said "Surprise! Hi Santa! A great idea to come meet you isn't it, huh, isn't it, huh, huh!" 
Santa Paws eyes opened wide as his mouth dropped open! Suddenly, as he realized how much Cod he spent, his eyes narrowed and he raised up onto his rear paws. Hisston said to Jumper "Wait till ya see dis action, MOL" 
The bear thought he was the biggest creature in the forest as he had never seen a Magical White Santa Cat Grow... and Grow... and Grow! Soon Santa reached down and picked the bear up between two claws. He meowed "Because of you I spent oodles of Cod on a bit of bear hair! And that box, where did you get that box? It has 'River Billy' written on it and he is a nice fellow who feeds the feral cats whenever he eats. He is a FAV of mine even if he is Ooman! Oh I know! You wanted to see Christmas Magic did you..." 
"Boys take this bear who now has no cares and ship him to one of our favorite fur families!"
"Sure think Boss" Said Hisston. Then he and Jumper took the bear, the box and the UPS bill inside. 
That Christmas we got the bear with a note explaining what he was and why he is now wooden and can no longer enjoy eating Cod. 
River Billy woke up Christmas morn to find a new, better, insulated, with free electric heat, box waiting fur him. He knocked the icicle off his nose and went inside. There was a huge box of canned Cod for him and his feral friends to enjoy. "Thanks Santa Paws" he said being the only Ooman to ever see the Jolly White Cat. And finally each bear in the woods got a bill for 1 Cod payable immediately. You see Santa Claws hangs with all the other Magical Furs and they agreed something needed to be done.
Fitz yoo tellin dat storyz agin. Dad gonna...
Buddy you Hush. Its my day

Mew Year Selfie: Mr Buttons

Hi Friends, Mr. Buttons here.
I want to thank you all for all the purrs and prayers. They have helped, if not to heal me they have kept me calm knowing you are all there giving me supurrt. 
We tried my fluids every 3 days and I told Dad I did not feel good with that plan. He immediately gave me 100cc two days in a row and insisted I take my Mirtazapine. 
After the second day I came out to visit evfurryone. I only want to eat treats but today I ate a pile so Dad says whatever I want is alright with him. I sure love him and boy does he love me.

That brings me to something Very Impawtent that I want to say to all my Friends.
Please remember to say how much you love your family and friends every chance you get. Dad says years ago, when he had his accident, he went to the white space but, luckily, was told to keep on living. Now I have been to the brink and know what he is talking about. I did not feel bad until the very last and also was brought back from the brink. When we wake up we never know what the day holds so live to the fullest. I sure have in my seven years.

Whew that was a lot of meowing. Time fur my Selfie. Visit The Cat on My Head to see all the great Selfies!

I love you all!
Mr Buttons - Loving my Family and Friends one day a time.
Dad Pete - Loving and Caring for my boy one day at a time

Mr Buttons Update

Hi Friends.
We read all your comments of support and we appreciate the love and caring. It means a lot to me and the family. I felt the supportive energy helping to get me back to better.

Dad gave me my fluids and I took them like a Champ. I tried to spit out my Mirtazapine and it got stuck on my tongue. Not doing that again as I started drooling like I saw a bowl of treats. MOL After a bunch of gulps it went down. Dad says it is such a small piece (1/4) that he needs a better way to give it to me. He will try baby food next. Yeah!

I ate dry food last night. Not a lot but way more than the the past days. This morning I ate a little more. Dad uses the "Buddy Trick." When I stop eating he puts a few treats in and mixes them up with my food. I then eat the treats and more food. 3 times he did that and I finished my meal. Dad thinks he is tricking me but Buddy told me about this and we are tricking him MOL.

Dad is going to look into food for Kidney disease and see if I like it before buying a case. He takes really good care of me.

I am only 7 years old and Dad says I will have many years with him. I will fight to get all the days I will be given by the Cat Mother Bast.

Thanks so much for all your suppurrt. Keep it coming and I will be better soon.

Mr Buttons needs Purrs

Mr Buttons had been anorexic and throwing up anything, even water, for 2 days prior to New Years Eve and Dad decided to take him to the vet. He sang but calmed down when Dad gave him a finger to rub while they waited. Dad was really worried that he had a blockage of some kind. The nice vet did labs and sent him home with a bag of fluids that Dad will give him SQ. Dad has done this before and is very comfortable caring for all of us.
The vet called an hour later and it seems our little brother has Kidney Disease. His Bun and Creat are very high and so is his Phosphate level. Dad will be picking up a binder for that on Tuesday as the vet is closed today. They also started him on Mirtazapine for his appetite. 
Mr Buttons has been eating a little of dry but only with treats mixed in. Dad does not mind holding him on his lap to nom while Buddy is having his dry noms. Now there are two kitties he has to monitor intake on but Buddy has been eating like a champ since he started his Thyroid medication. 
We are all stressed over this. Mr Buttons has been sitting in the bathtub. Dad says a vent goes right underneath and it warms the bottom up. 

I am not feeling well but hopefully Dad will set me right.
I would love some Purrs and Prayers from my Friends!
Thanks and Happy Mew Year

We hope the Mew Year will give us a break.
