This is Bear.
He's an American Eskimo Dog.
Hence why he's named Bear, as in Polar Bear.
His birthday is October 15th, 2003.
That makes him 7 and a half years old.
Ma and I adopted him from the Cocheco Valley Humane Society the day before Easter.
Hence why he is Bear the Easter Pup.

So now our fur babies consist of Buddy the Birthday Kitty and Bear the Easter Pup. I think my life is complete now. Bear was 12 years in the making. As in, it took me 12 years to find a home where I was allowed to have a dog and those same 12 years to get my mom to say yes. Haha. But now I have a dog and I'm SO happy!!!!

As for Buddy, he's still a tad weary of the "big" Bear, but mostly he's fine with the new addition. Bear, on the other hand, ignores Buddy for the most part. Although he now sniffs Buddy if Buddy comes up and sniffs at his nose. It's cute. They get along well and there have been absolutely no fights which is great! :-D

One awesome thing about Bear is that he's house trained. He also knows sit, down and roll over. But I've started clicker training him so maybe he could become my service dog one day. But who knows if he'll get that far. I'd at least like him trained well enough that I don't have to drag him away from a squirrel. He sees one and he won't move. It's kind of funny because he's 27.5 pounds (a few lbs overweight) and he's hard to move when he spots one of those little critters!

Another thing: he doesn't smell! I mean, yeah, okay, he's got a distinct scent. But he doesn't have that gross dog smell. He actually reminds me of the way my aunt's dog used to smell. His eyes are brown like hers were and if you just look at his face, you almost see her in it. Maybe that's how he worked his way into my heart.

The story is, Ma and I found 3 dogs on the CVHS's website and pet finder listing that we liked. Their names were Lois Lane, Chubbs, and Jelly Bean. Well, when we got there they told us that Chubbs and Jelly Bean had been adopted. Sad for us but good for them. Then they told us that Lois Lane was in a foster home so she wasn't even at the shelter. But we talked to her foster dad and we found out her personality was too independent and therefore not what I was looking for. So we looked thru the kennels. The second to last kennel held Bear whose name was Seuss at the time.

Apparently he'd been found as a stray but the shelter was convinced he'd been someone's pet because he's got a summer cut and he's house-trained. But anyway! There he was sprawled on his bed with these soulful brown eyes, just watching. When I knelt down and talked to him, he came over and stuck his nose thru the chain link to sniff my finger. It was love at first sight really.

He wasn't what we'd gone there for, but he's what we left with and I couldn't be happier. Plus, Eskie's can live on average up to 15 years. So he's basically middle-aged for his breed, even tho vets consider dogs/cats seniors at age 7.

But I must go now. It's time for Bear's last pee break before bed. Oh! Also it's great that I have a quern size bed since he takes up one whole side with the way he sprawls! LOL

Goodnight Lovers!

Acid reflux is killing me, but that's not what this post is about. This post is about my 25th BIRTHDAY, which was yesterday. It was also Buddy's 2nd birthday. It was also the one year anniversary of adopting Buddy. Hence why he is known as Buddy the Birthday Kitty :)

Anyway, yesterday started out pretty boring because I was home alone. But I spent the time playing on my computer and hanging out with the Birthday Kitty. Also when I got up, there was a message from my mom on the whiteboard that said, Amanda Happy Birthday! It made me smile. When she got home she let me open a present early. It was Michael Jackson's This Is It on DVD! I was so excited.

As for birthday wishes, I got a ton from friends and family on my facebook and from people on Twitter. It really made me smile. I also got my annual American Idol Birthday Call. What it is, is my mom's friend Gail calls and sings Happy Birthday as badly as she can. It's always one of the highlights of my birthday. Really, if you could hear, you'd die laughing. It's so bad! I love getting that call XD And I also got some really awesome birthday tweets from some really amazing singers. I totally screen capped them! So here they are:

Bday Tweets behind the Cut! )

So those of course really made my day! I was all SQUEEEEE!

Around six Mom and I went with Mike to Newicks for my birthday dinner. If you go on your birthday, you get up to $10 off your meal and they have stuff under ten bucks so you can essentially get a free meal. But you have to show your ID so it has to be your birthday. haha. It's this new tradition we've started, going for our birthdays, since we now have a Newicks in our city. We only used to be able to go once in a while since the nearest one was pretty far away. The food was amazing as usual. Mom and I got the same thing, but she got the smaller portion. It's a seafood caserole. It's haddock, shrimp and scallops in Newburgh sauce with crumb topping. It's soooooo good. Usually this time of year they have Seafood Shepherd's Pie, which is the same thing but with potato instead of the crumbs. But they didn't have it this year, so I was a little disappointed. But not by much since I got to have the caserole :) We were so stuffed, that when we got home we couldn't even have cake! And we still haven't. I wanted to have some for breakfast, but I thought I'd wait till after dinner so I could have some with my mom and get to blow out the candles and everything.

And now for presents. So you already know about the DVD. Well, from Mike I got 2 McDonald's gift cards. That's what he always gets me which I love. He's great. Saturday I got a card with $25 in it from my grandma. The rest of the things I got from my mom was a bunch of candy because I have the biggest sweet tooth EVER! She also got me a karaoke game for the Wii. And the last thing she got me was Kat Von D's book High Voltage Tattoo, which is the name of her tattoo shop. There are some awesome pictures in it! I haven't started reading it, but I've started looking through the pictures and they're cool. It's a really beautiful book. I can't wait to get started on it.

All in all, my birthday was pretty awesome. 25 is starting pretty well. Lets hope it continues this way :)

So I haven't really posted about this except for on Twitter and Facebook. But lets face it, I haven't had a real livejournal post in quite a while. That's probably b/c of having the swine and working on NaNoWriMo and knitting a sweater for Operation Santa.

Anyway, Buddy the Birthday Kitty started having bathroom issues last week. He would squat in different corners in the house trying to pee. He had an appointment at the vet's two days later for his annual check-up and shots. But because he was squatting like this, we decided to call the vet and see if he could be seen sooner. So we took him in that night, which was Tuesday last week. After a night in the hospital to get a urine sample, they decided he didn't have a UTI. He has what is called FLUTD, which stands for Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease. There are a bunch of other names for it too, but this is the one I remember.

Basically the symptoms are the same as a UTI; pain and the constant urge to go even when you don't, but it's not an infection. FLUTD is a chronic condition that has to be dealt with for the cat's entire life. My mom's all pissed b/c all of the three cats we've had have had major health issues. Luckily tho, Buddy's issue is VERY easy to deal with and lets us have a kitty shopping spree ;D

What you have to do to make symptoms better is firstly give pain medication while his symptoms are happening. But the thing that helps him the most is fluid intake, which is actually hard when it comes to cats. As a human, when we get UTI's we just drink a helluva lot of cranberry juice with our antibiotics. The thing with cats is that you can't make them drink. There's just no way. The best way for them to get regular fluids is to feed them canned food. Which is way healthier for them than dry food anyway, which I'll explain a little later. Also what you can do is buy them a water fountain. They're crazy expensive, but they really do make cats want to drink more. It's proven. Friends and family have actual personal experience with it. So we'll be ordering him one ASAP. We found one on Walmart.com that is awesome that you don't need to buy filters for twenty-four-seven.

So while at the vet's we got Buddy two cans of two different kinds of prescription cat food for urinary tract health. He only liked one of the foods. So my mom went to pick some food up on Monday and they were all out. That really pissed her off b/c she called them six hours beforehand and told them she was coming to pick it up and paid for it and everything! Luckily, he doesn't necessarily need the prescription food. He just needs some canned food. It's more about the moisture intake than anything. So Mom and I trekked it down to Petco to get him some food. We found some by Friskies that was actually for urinary tract health. There were three flavors so we got two of each.

Turns out, Buddy doesn't like ANY of them!!!! Mom was freaking out b/c the stores only carry, like, 2 canned foods that are for urinary health. The rest are all HARD FOOD, which is completely frickin stupid. But then I reminded Mom that the vet said as long as they get canned food it doesn't matter too much, altho it's slightly better to have the urinary tract kind. But really, any canned food will do as long as they eat it. So we're going back to Petco tonight to return the unopened cans and get Buddy some Science Diet wet food. They fed him the hard kind of Science Diet when he was at the shelter and we were feeding it to him too, so we know he likes it. We hope that since he liked that brand of hard food, he'll also like their canned food. So we're keeping our fingers crossed.

Now, as to why it's better for a cat to eat canned food. Basically the vet told us that as far as dogs are concerned, you can actually turn your dog vegetarian and it's no problem. They can live off the dry food without an issue. Cats on the other hand cannot. They can tolerate hard food, but they have to have meat in their diet. Hard food is made with a ton of carbohydrates to help make it into the little pellets. Cats aren't made to eat a lot of carbs. She said that cats are basically the epitome of the Atkins Diet. lol. Basically the cat's body runs the best on a high protein low carb diet. So canned food is basically all protein b/c it's actual meat. Hence why it is soooo much better for them.

To prove a point, since Buddy started eating his canned food he has all but stopped begging for food. He's been begging the past couple of days though b/c he hasn't liked the food we've been giving him, therefore he hasn't really been eating it and we've had to give him more hard food... which doesn't fill him up b/c of the carbs. It also makes him more hungry b/c of the carbs. But on the canned food (that he likes and eats) he'll be sleeping on the couch and I'll be working on Nanowrimo and all of a sudden it's 6:15 and I haven't fed him dinner and he hasn't made a sound about it! But as soon as I ask him if he wants to eat, he gets up and goes trotting out to the kitchen :) It's really nice to have him not beg for his food all the time. And I think it makes him happier.

So yes, this is my Buddy update. Now I must go shower b/c I have my social worker coming over in one hour and then she's taking me to see my new therapist for the first time. I need to get my ass in gear!

Bite Me

Like the subject line? It's about my baby Froy. He's a gerbil. His brother is Scout. They rock. But unfortunately I've decided they must go back to Petco. It's a very hard decision to make because they are the cutest and I could watch them for hours and feed them treats until they are too full. But the thing is, they've been locked in my bedroom since the day I got them. I mean I play with them but it's hard because of Buddy. He finds the gerbs a little too interesting. He even dove in the cage last week when I had the door open and had Froy in my hands. Unfortuneately Scout was in the cage in his house and that's where Buddy's paw went. Luckily there were no physical injuries. But now Froy won't stop biting and he wasn't even the one attacked. With Scout, I can stick my finger thru the bars of the cage and he runs against it or holds on to it. Froy will just try to bite it off.

Buddy is always after them. It's not fair to anyone; the gerbs, the cat or me, because I don't get to play with them freely. I think it's best if they find a new home. I hate to say that. I love my gerbs. I'd rather my mom take them back to Petco but I'm the one who signed the adoption papers so I have to take them back. Ugh. This sucks hardcore. I should have brought them back as soon as Buddy tried to knock the cage off the bureau. Which was the day I got them. I would have been less attached at that point. But I wanted to see if Buddy would calm down if he had supervised visits with the gerbs in the cage and the cage on the floor. But nope that didn't work. He just tries to grab them thru the bars. Good thing his paws are big or else he'd get one in. It just really sucks. I had big plans for those guys, or at least as big as you can get for gerbils.

Also, we have an opportunity to get two more cats named Jake and Junior. They're my sister's cats. I guess with the twins coming, she and her husband want to get rid of them. If no one takes them and they have to bring them back to the shelter where they got them, I'll cry. Jake would get adopted in a split second. He's a big cuddle bug and loves everyone and he talks which is cute. But Junior? He's one of those cats that would probably be considered unadoptable. He was born on the streets and is still afraid of people. Well except for the ones he lives with. He's a feral kitty and I didn't see him once when I was at their house on Saturday. Jake on the other hand followed us all day. Then Mom tells me that if Jess n Ian had told us back in January that they were going to get rid of them, Mom wouldn't have adopted Buddy and she would have just taken Jake and Junior. Doesn't she know you can't say those things to me? But whatever. Mom says she'd be willing to take one but doubts they'd separate them. But ya know they might have to. I told Mom that if they did, we were taking Junior because he would never make it at a shelter because of his feral backround. She agreed. I doubt we'll even take the one though. *sigh*

On another note I've been having a good past few days. It's probably been about a week now. No deppression. But that could change after another week of downpours. Ick.

Did I also mention that I LOVE when Adam Lambert sings Black & White? Yeah, it makes me happy. Also love when Kris Allen sings Heartless.

And one last thing before I go. I signed up for The Spark Inside summer challenge. This year the hanfics are a collaboration effort. Last week I found out I'm partnered with Rene C ([livejournal.com profile] mizzc) — I can't remember if she spells it with one "e" or two. Oh well! LOL. But this should be very interesting and the stories won't be posted until September 1st. It's an all summer thing.

So that's it for now.

My poor Buddy-baby has worms. We figured it out this weekend. Then my mom called the vet today. They said that the only way he could get these kinds of worms is from fleas or eating dead animals. He obviously isn't eating dead animals since he doesn't go outside and we haven't seen any dead animals in our home. And hopefully we'd know if there were any. Also we know he doesn't have fleas. So Mom asked the vet if he could have had them ever since we adopted him and they said that was a possibility. I'm convinced he had them when we got him b/c the worms are like rice and on the arm of the couch there was a little dried up thing that looked like rice but I could tell it wasn't cuz it was flat. So now I'm convinced b/c I've seen these on his fur around his back end ever since the first day we had him! I'm grossed out. So now he has to take medicine and I'm praying he'll be as good with this stuff as he was with his antibiotics.

Also I think my mom probably hates the SPCA by now. We new when we got him there was a chance he could have an upper respitory infection b/c it was going around the shelter. He ended up having that PLUS conjunctivitis. He also had some loose teeth that have fallen out like the vet said they would. And now he has rice worms — I've named them. My mom's like, every time I turn around it's another hundred dollars to the vet! Its kind of funny.

But we always seem to get the cats that are sickly. My first cat MnM ended up with a bowel disease which was basically like having chronic constipation. We ended up having to put her to sleep because she was in so much pain all the time. My other cat Logan was diagnosed with a heart murmur when she was about a year old. That never really affected her though. She acted like a kitten until the day we had to put her down in January. Now we have Buddy who just has one thing after another.

We have a pet curse.

Because I'm obsessed with Craigs List and obsessed with finding a pet that Buddy can get along with that my mom would approve of and that is a very human social creature.

During this quest I found a family giving away one of their ferrets away for free. It has a few behavior problems that I think with time could be resolved. Like he plays too rough and is not fully litter trained no matter what they do. Have they not read up on ferrets? Some of them will go ion whatever corner they want as long as their food and bedding is far away. Sometimes you need more than one litter box. These people are giving it away for free b/c the person they adopted it from said if it didn't work out, she'd take it back. But now she won't answer their calls.

I looked up a bunch of stuff on ferrets they're very sociable creatures that love humans and, believe it or not, dogs and cats. Apparently they get along better with them than other rodents b/c their wild ancestors used to hunt small rodents like mice. You still have to supervise play time between ferrets and cats/dogs cuz any of the three can get rough.

Because I have a big heart, want what I can't have, am crazy or all of the above, I'm desperate to get my mom's permission to bring this little guy into our home. He wouldn't really be caged much since I'm home all day. Sometimes I go for a half hour walk on Wednesdays but that's about it during the week. And I'm sure if I went to visit the neighbors they'd love to have another animal roaming the house. Plus you can take them outside on harnesses and leads and they're very trainable.

I don't know what these people will do if they can't find a home for it. They sound kinda desperate. I've always wanted to do something like this for a living. Rescue animals. Train animals. Just be around animals. This sounds like it's be a good experience for me. Plus piling on the animals could help my BP. But more importantly I could help this ferret who they think was neglected by it's first owner.

Now I have to figure out a way to get my mom to be okay with it. I could always do what I did with my mouse and she could come home one day to find him here but that's too disrespectful for a 24 year old to do. But on the other hand I am 24 years old. I think she should give me a little credit for something. I mean maybe getting this ferret could lead to a ferret rescue orginization or, the more hated by people, breeding. Maybe I could make a career out of it. Who knows. Well I'll never know unless she gives me a chance. Also, I'm going to have tons more money when I quit smoking completely. I mean I already have a little more since smoking one pack takes 2 - 3 days now and I should be all quitted in about two weeks.

My hopes are stppid tho. She'll never say yes in a million years. The only reason I got buddy was because Logan was was just as much my mom's cat as she was mine and my mom wanted a new cat too. If she had been over the whole cat thing I wouldn't have gotten Buddy. My mom is sooooo stubborn. Now I know where I got it.

Seems Buddy is doing better today. He's eating and drinking again and having no bathroom problems... That we can see anyway. Also he's cuddly again. It seems like he just had some sort of 24-hour bug. Or it was something he ate. We're not sure. I'm just glad I don't have to clean up any more accidents. If you know what I mean.

We'll probably still have to take him to the vets to have his chin looked at, but at least it won't be the emergency vets where they over charge you.

Also, thanks for your concern for Buddy. He appreciated it :)

So you probably don't want to know this, but Buddy is having diarreah. I know, that's a little TMI. But it's kind of horrible. He pottied all over the back room where his litter box is. Not sure why he didn't do it *IN* the box, but nonetheless. It really sucks b/c I have to check his nether region every time he comes out of the litter box room and then sometimes I have to wipe it. Can you say EW?

Anyway. It's not just upsetting b/c it's gross. It's also upsetting b/c I know my mom won't put up with a poop-disabled cat. She also won't put up with a cat that has to go to the vet's every other week. I'm hoping he just has a food allergy or something and it can be fixed easily. We were already going to make an appointment with the vet b/c of his chin. It looks like he has some kind of rash or something. His chin used to be white with a dot of gold. Now it's turning black from dried blood. He just keeps scratching it, altho I've never really seen him do it and it gets all scabby and bloody. I try to wash it, but it's all stuck in his fur. Plus, washing it isn't going to make it better. To make it better, we need to know what it is and how to treat it. I'm just hoping it's not mange (sp?). It's something that dogs get but I don't know about cats. Mange is actually mites. I guess most dogs (and cats?) have them, but it only becomes a probably if they have an immune issue or there are too many.

My point is: I don't want to get rid of my cat. Of course all of this doesn't mean that that will happen. But it could and it scares me. I don't need to lose another cat right now. Two in just a couple of months? No thank you.

*sigh* this sucks.

Also, my mom left me home with her baby-sitting charge. She went to the pharmacy and then she's going grocery shopping. Anyway, I guess I'm going to go back to typing up Puppy Love. So yeah..... That's my life in a nutshell right now.

Peace. Love. Fingers Crossed.

So today I went to the cholesterol clinic. My blood tests were good, only one thing went up but just a little so it's in the right range still. Also, I've lost eight pounds since December or did she say May? Anyway January 2008 or maybe the December before, I was 181lbs. I am now 168lbs. So that made me feel pretty good.

Speaking of feeling good...... Wednesday my mom & I got haircuts. My cut was based off a style Ashlee Simpson had when her hair was black and all blunt edges and all razored. My hair looks awesome and I can't wait to show you.

Also, I didn't win any of the awards I was nominated for in the Hanfic Genre Challenge. I was nominated five times but didn't win any. :/

I also think Buddy needs a friend. He's the biggest trouble maker lately. He's jumping on the table and eating the plants and playing with my mom's knitting. First I thought it was because he was hungry. He usually starts acting out when he's hungry; chewing on things and playing with things he's not supposed to play with. He has his own toys he can play with. Maybe I need to get some chew toys for him. Or just more toys in general. I don't know. Maybe he just needs a friend. But my mom definitely will not go for that. But Buddy was used to living with ya know ten other cats. Now he's just got me 24/7 and my mom after work. I don't know.

I haven't quite decided between a refurbished laptop or a brand new netbook. I've found some good prices on both. But seriously, we also need to get a wireless router. I've found some good prices on those too. I found one laptop that once I cash my bday check from my grammie with all I've saved my mom would only have to pay...... Let me check the calculater. The guesstimate is $145 and trust me, she has the money. But then again we're trying to save up for a house. Also that 145 includes the wireless router. So it's not that bad. I think I might want a refurbished laptop instead of a new netbook b/c I want a bigger screen. But who knows. We'll just have to wait and see. I just hope it doesn't take too much longer. My mom always gets nervous with big ticket items where as I if it's something I've wanted for years as soon as I get the money and find the specific one I want, I buy it. I've come to this point in my life where I want to have nice things and I sometimes have money for those things so I buy them. What's wrong with that? I won't buy anything for a whole month just so I can have $80 to put towards saving for a laptop or netbook.

Oy vey it's late. I need to get to bed. I'll talk to u in the morning.

P.S. I'm going to see my PCP tomorrow... er today really. I'm going to try the Chantix again. A carton of my cheap brand of cigarettes went from $37.49 to $44.59 in, like, two weeks. Srsly. I really can't afford to smoke anymore. I told my mom I was never going to smoke a cig that costs over 40 bucks. I think it's funny that the day before I go to my dr to ask for help with my nicotine addiction that they finally went over $40

Goodnight for real now

I'd just like you all to know that Buddy is NOT crazy.

Off and on Buddy has been sitting, staring into a certain corner of the room. At first we wondered if there was a bug over there but we couldn't find one. Then we thought maybe he was doing it to be close to the radiator because we have steam heat and maybe it was making his stuffy nose feel better.

Last night at about 11 we noticed Buddy in the corner. I finally decided to get down on the floor with him and inspect. Turns out Buddy isn't crazy. I found a shit-load of ants crawling around! Mom got out the bug spray and went to work. But we couldn't find where they were coming from, which seriously frustrated my mom. All I could do was laugh and say, At least we know Buddy isn't crazy.

While my mom found the ants frustrating, I found the situation highly amusing. If it weren't for Buddy, I would have probably been as annoyed as my mom.

Buddy is doing sooooooo much better!

At noon time I gave Buddy a steam. He was very good about it. He sat in my lap the whole time and never once cried. When we were done, I put down some hard food for him while I got his wet food ready. He actually ate some hard food, which was very exciting. Then as I was mashing up his wet food, he came over and sat at my feet. He could obviously smell it. When I set the plate on the floor he again ate. He didn't eat a whole lot between the two, but it was more than what he's eaten in the past few days. He hasn't gone back to sleep yet. He just moved next to me on the couch and is grooming. He also sounds like he's breathing better while grooming. I'm very excited because this means he won't have to go to the vet's today. But my mom might call them just to let them know he's doing so much better.

I guess I won't be calling him "Snuffy" much longer. :D I can't help being so happy for my little Buddy.

So Buddy isn't really eating or drinking. The only time we can get him to do any of it is after doing a 15 minute steam treatment in the bathroom. Also the vet told us we should probably get Buddy a vaporizer. Things are so weird. I'm just scared that his upper respitory thing has turned into pneumona or something. That maybe he'll have the same fate as the Bitch Kitty, the one who came before Buddy. I'm kind of scared because my mom said no more pets after Buddy, he has cost us too much $$$. Seriously, I want a dog next. One that isn't ever sick. But that won't happen because we always wind up with the sickly ones.

As for writing, I've posted chapter four of my Hanfic Genre Challenge story. I've also started on chapter five, which I hope to have up tomorrow some time. And then it'll be on to six. That should be up before the deadline. Plus, I don't think I have a whole lot more to write but maybe I'm wrong. I dunno. I want to at least be qualified to be voted upon.

Also, I'm still working on Mike's birthday scarf. I worked on it between writing and posting today. But at least I got that baby blanket done. And my knitting project that I'll be doing after Mike's scarf is this really awesome patch-work like baby blanket. I have to make two of them. My sister's having twins and I've got plenty of time to work on them. Especially once I get Mike's scarf done and finish my hgc fic.

I have almost enough $$$ to buy the laptop at Staples that's seriously on sale this week. If you include the wireless router with the computer, I have enough that my mom will only have to pay 150$ at the most. And if I somehow miraculously [sp?] get my Xmas money AND my birthday money from my dad, then my mom would on end up paying, like, 20$. I'm not holding my breath about my dad. But whatever.

I'm either going to sleep right now orrrr I'm going to write. But I'm not sure if I could stay awake for that.

So goodnight everyone ♥

Buddy just took a steam with me.

I hang my bathrobe on the over-the-door towel rack when I shower. Buddy hid behind my bathrobe the whole time with just his head sticking out, even though I had brought his blankie in with us. He behaved very well. He only started crying five seconds before I was to get out.

Once I let him out of the bathroom, he kept coming and going, visiting me while I dried off. Now he's laying on the back of the couch looking out the window. I think the steaming helped. He sneezed a few times after he was let out of the bathroom. But I can still hear the snot in his nose. Oh well. At least he got two steams today. One with my mom and one with me. Maybe later tonight I'll sit with him in the bathroom with the shower running on hot, hot, hot. Get it nice and steamy in there.

Okay, now I'm actually going to write.

Last night I finished the baby blanket for my cousin Dorene's baby shower. It came out really good. But it has now disappeared because my mom wanted to wash it. But it's awesome and I'm glad it's done.

Buddy was doing soooooo much better but now he's doing worse. You can actually hear the snot in his nose when he breathes. And if you put your ear to his body, you can hear him wheezing. My mom just called the vet and she said we have to shower with him, as a steam treatment. Also, we have to get him some wet food because he can smell it better. When cats have stuffy noses and can't smell, they won't eat. We've noticed Buddy is eating less so now it's time for wet food. The vet said if he isn't better by Friday, he needs to be seen again. My mom's kinda pissed that we ended up with such a sick cat. But I know she wouldn't trade him for the world.

Last but not least, now that I have the baby blanket done, I can continue with my Hanfic Genre Challenge story. I need to finish chapter four, write five and six and have them all posted by Monday at 11:59pm. I think I can do it. If not, I won't be in the running to get voted on. :( So, ya know, I really want to get it done.

That is it for now. I need to get writing. Wish me luck.

So Buddy has been taking his medicine twice a day since, I think, Wednesday. He's actually very good at taking it. He likes his antibiotics. I think he likes the taste. It smells good at least. But he doesn't really like his eye ointment aka his eye goop. Although his eyes aren't bright red anymore. I think he's doing much better. He's a little more active and isn't sleeping as much during the day. I really believe he's feeling better. And his sneezes aren't so snotty anymore so it seems his upper respitory thing is clearing up too. I'm very happy with this.

On another note, I might get a laptop today. Not quite sure though. There's a good deal on a Compaq Presario at Staples. I think it's the only laptop I've seen with 4 gb of RAM that's under five or six hundred dollars. But it's a wicked sale. You get $250 off instantly and a $30 easy rebate. In the end with all the money off, it's only about $400, which is nice. I think I have about half of that and my mom told me that she'd pay whatever was left over. So I'm crossing my fingers.

Also, I need to get writig on my hgc fic. And I think that's all for now. Hope everyone's having a good Presidents Day.

Poor Buddy. He went to the vet's at 4 o'clock and came back home with a diagnosis of pink eye, an upper respitory infection, gingivitis with a loose tooth and overly waxy ears. He has to have liquid antibiotics twice a day and eye ointment twice a day. Hopefully, if it's not viral, his eyes and sniffles will be gone in seven days.

Pray for him.

Hey guys. Sorry I didn't do a real post today. I was mostly chillaxin with my beautiful baby boy kitty, Buddy. I've been taking pictures of him off and on all day. It's been fun. He's so cuddly. I'm not used to that at all, but I completely love it! I love having a cat that doesn't care if I play with his paws or pick him up or cuddle with him as much as possible. He knows who his mama is =) Also, I noticed the day we got him that he has a brown [ ♥ ] on his back with a black tiger stripe down the middle of it. I feel like it's a sign or something. Like, he's going to heal my broken heart, like he was meant to come home with me. He sleeps with me all night and it's nice. He keeps me warm, especially with our house being so damn cold. Buddy and I sleep in the coldest room in the house.

But anyway.... I've got to get to bed. I actually have to leave my house tomorrow. Fun. I really just want to stay home for a week or two to just hang out with Buddy. I don't think he likes being alone. Another one of those cats. Oh well.

Bedtime! And snuggle time with my Buddykins =D

So I had an amazing birthday! First Mom and I went to PETCO to buy the essentials, ie: litter box, litter, food. Then we were off to the Concord-Merrimack County SPCA. We brought a cat crate with us just in case they approved us on the spot and let us take our cat home.

Well, the cat I've been drooling over for the past week was still there. Once I spotted him outside of the cages just napping in a cat bed, I knew I was going to take him home. He's so cute and cuddly and is mostly just chillaxin....... Right from the start. He didn't even cry on the ride home. He actually fell asleep on the ride. We've never had a cat that wasn't so freaked out in the car. It was actually quite nice. I almost forgot he was in there with us.

Right now Buddy and I are in my bed, the first time since Logan died. Buddy is the cutest, most cuddliest cat ever. It showed on his paper work that he was 11 months last month. So that means his first bday is in February. We've decided that his date of birth will now be February 7th, 2008, my cat and I have the same birthday. It's pretty cool. I'll post pictures of him at a later date, when I have more than three to post. Omg! Buddy even poses for pictures! It makes me giggle =)

Well, I think it's about time to get to sleep. I'll post a better update about my birthday tomorrow.

Sleep tight F-Listers!
