8:26 pm - An ending.
At 6:20pm this evening, Granite Chelsea passed over the Rainbow Bridge. She was suffering from pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary fibrosis, and as a result of these, pulmonary failure.

She was fourteen years old.

We know she is now frolicking with Her Human in the happy place where nothing hurts and it's easy to breathe.

This journal is now officially closed.

We'll miss you, princess. You were so loved.

12:28 am - hello everyone.
It has been a long time since I have written here.

Many things have happened. For one, I am older than the humans thought I was. I am about fourteen years of age. Suck it, COPPA!

I have a lump on my stomach, where my breasts are. It makes me feel quite ill, but now I am on horrible-tasting medicines and they make the illness go away. I do not enjoy the medicines, however. I wish I did not have to take them, but the human-who-is-not-mine pleads with me so much I eat them to please her. Mum does not plead. She knows where I am missing one of my fangs and she will push her finger down my throat with the medicine!

I do not like to eat very much, as a whole. This means more medicine that makes me want to eat everything in the house. But as long as it is kibble or Fancy Feast gravy, I will consume it.

I remain very, very confused these days. The humans went away and they took me to The Vet while they were gone, which is not so bad now that I know I will always return to my home. There are many soft-voiced young women at The Vet and they all love to hold me and tell me how sweet I am. But when I left The Vet, it was Mum and not My Human, the man with the warm lap and best compliments, who took me home.

The human-who-is-not-mine cries a lot now, especially at night. She is Colin's human and he is a jerkface as per usual, but he shares her. He knows better than to cross me. I have seen Mum much more than I ever used to lately, which I do enjoy, but I want My Human. I have not seen him since before The Vet. I can go and sit on his shoes, which I do frequently. Things in the house come and go, and if I smell him on them I will guard them for him. They are his and I will protect what is his until he comes home.

I am so confused. Where is My Human?

2:16 pm
Mum visited today. She smells of that cat who used to live outside my house. They live together now. Mum tells me it's her parents' fault that we can't be together, but I don't know how much of that I believe. I sat in her lap for half an hour while her laundry dried and we watched television together and cuddled, trying to get her to take me with her. I just want to be with my mum.

That other cat apparently is very smart and wears a collar. She knows politics and watches movies that don't have my Matty in them. Perhaps if I figure out how to turn on the radio to listen to the same station she does, Mum will find out how smart I am and want to take me with her. Maybe I should try to wear the harness, too...

2:28 pm - What happened?
I do not feel well at all, and I cannot walk quite correctly.

Last night I was locked in Mum's room with her and they did not give me a food dish or a water bowl. I whined at Mum all night but she just kept apologizing and saying it wasn't her fault.

This morning I was stuffed in my carrier and taken to the vet by Grandpa. They put a mask on my face and I had to breathe into it, and then I don't remember what happened, only that I woke up with lots of mouth pain and now I can't walk. Mum is giggling at me when I stumble, she says I'm her poor baby but it'll be better soon. I hope so, I failed to jump on the chair a few minutes ago. It looks like I'll have to stay in here some more...but I hope Mum will give me food and water now.

The repairman is banging around the house. I do not like it at all.

current mood: sick

1:50 pm - Also...
Hello new friends! I have added you, I am sorry if you had to wait. If you added Colin he will be on when I am through and he will add you.

1:46 pm - Sibling?
Mum says we have a little brother up in Newfoundland. He is what I smell on her things, she says. He smells like prey. His name is apparently Matthew. I suppose I will nt eat him if I ever meet him...but he smells very, very good to eat. He also has a LiveJournal and I suppose I will add him shortly.

I have also smelt Auntie Mer on Mum as well. I hope I will be able to see her before she leaves.

I am happy that Mum is home and I have been getting lots of snuggle time in! She says I have gained a little weight, but at least I am not as fat as Colin!

10:30 pm - I Hunt
It is the season for treefrogs to stick to the windows. Naturally, I wish to protect my family from these frightening creatures that shove their white bellies against the glass and distract everyone. Unfortunately, the picture window in the den does not lend itself to easy access of the upper half, so I must have help, as can be seen from one of the pictures in my userinfo.

Tonight there were three treefrogs, and Mum was exhorting me to get them. She lifted me up to one, and I began to smack the glass. To Mum's surprise (and my happiness) the treefrog fell off and was not to be seen again! Another fled in sheer terror, leaving one whom, even though Mum lifted me as high as she could to get him (straining her poor wrist in the process), absolutely would not move even under the hardest of glass slaps.

Still, as the saying goes, "two out of three ain't bad." Mum has been praising my hunting skills all evening. Grandmum, however, remains unimpressed and says my true skill is hunting roaches and moths. I can do it all, I assure you, Grandmum.

current mood: satisfied

8:30 pm - An update
I am typing this while I sit in my mother's lap. I am quite happy she is home for the summer...I have been giving her lots of kisses!

Colin is getting fatter. The diet seems to have no effect on him. Perhaps it is the fact that Grandmum cannot deny him when he begs for bits of her dinner. That is beneath me, I shall have you know. I do not enjoy human food at all except a cheese or two. Mum lets me try whatever I want of her food because I rarely ask for it, but I simply do not like most of it. Especially not the sour-smelling things she drinks that she calls "beer" and "alcohol". Grandmum drinks "wine" which Colin continues attempting to try, even though it smells foul.

I do not have that much to say, plus Mum has indicated that her foot is now asleep so I must get off her lap. I am happy she is home, so very happy!

9:46 pm - Dieting
Grandmum has put us on a diet. She says that Colin is too fat and that I am a little too fat myself. I am affronted! I have gained weight, yes, but I do not believe I am fat! Neither does Mum, for that matter.

But we are on a diet anyway. Less kibble, is all it is, really. And less Fancy Feast. Our food is otherwise the same. But I am still slightly miffed at Grandmum for doing this. Colin simply howls all the time for more food. When I am very hungry, I try to be my usual self and just...look up and possibly meow slightly, but while it can work on Mum it does not work on my grandparents. I know Granddad wants to give in, but Grandmum won't let him.

That is all...

current mood: hungry

10:39 am - Not one for material things, but...
Aunt Alyssa has posted a link to a store that makes me happy, The Purple Store. I do enjoy purple, it goes very well with my fur.

That being said, I am not one to want material things, but I am fond of this item. I am not sure the shade will match me very well as I prefer bluer shades of purple, but isn't it pretty?

current mood: calm

9:40 am - Goodness, it is scary.
We went to the vet today. Colin was his usual obnoxious self and bit and scratched and growled. I was so scared, I am always scared when I go to the vet, but they all told me how good and sweet I was. I wish Colin would just settle down and not fight them, things go a lot faster and we get back home quicker.

Mum leaves at the end of the week, I am so sad. But I hang around her a lot and she is always willing to pet me or let me nap with her. I will miss her so much when she goes away again. Maybe one day she'll come back and never leave again, or at least take me with her.

7:09 pm - Things
Mum is home for the holidays, and I have been stocking up on scritches, pats, and hugs! She has not been feeling very well today and slept most of the afternoon, so I laid down on the body pillow next to her and slept as well. Mum was very grateful to me for doing so, and I was happy to make her happy.

Tonight I accidentally got shut into Grandmum's sewing room and everyone thought I had gotten outside since that rotter Colin was found in the garage. One of these days he is going to get himself killed. Anyway, they were looking all over for me and calling me. I tried to mew but Colin was snarking loudly because no one was paying attention to him. Eventually, Mum realized there was one room in the house they had not checked and opened the door. She had been calling with a note of desperation in her voice so I leaped right out to her. Later she asked me to promise never to go outside and to call louder if I am stuck somewhere. She was so upset at the thought of losing me on Christmas Eve. I know my mum loves me so much and I am so thankful for that.

This is my third Christmas here. I am happy and thankful for my life here as well as the people I am attached to. I especially love my Aunt Alyssa, and as always I miss my Aunt Mer terribly. I shall now be cliche and wish a "Meowy" Christmas to all my friends here on LJ, and wish the furry set many catnip mice tomorrow under the tree!

current mood: happy

9:33 pm - A small update.
I have an eye infection. I do not think it was necessary for the doctor to prescribe that nasty stuff that Mum squirts into my eye twice a day. I do not like it at all, it hurts. Mum says she has to do it for another week, doctor's orders, but I am really not happy with her right now. I try to be, but then she goes and makes my eye hurt again! Her mother says I am always winking. Of course I am, my eye is gooked up with the medicine!

I think I shall be nice to Mum now, though. I know if I am a good girl she will give me some of that sushi she has in the fridge.

current mood: my eye hurts

5:57 am - Yay!
I love Mum so very much. She was watching something on Animal Planet, but she checked the TV listings and found something called "Titan A.E." It is animated, but she told me that my Matty is a voice in it! And oh, how he is. Mum does not appear to like the movie very much, but she is still watching it for me! I am writing this here because she has brought the laptop downstairs and I may use it. The break is almost over, though, so I will return to my chair and listen to Matty talk.

I just wanted to share the fact I am happy because I haven't seen Matty in so long! Mum's parents do not tend to favour the types of movies he's in.

Eeee it's on again

current mood: happy

10:35 pm - overdue update
I know I have not updated in a while, but things have been busy, so please bear with me.

The winter was fairly boring. I talked to Mum a few times on the phone..Colin either acts as if the phone is possessed and runs away or tries to eat it. Still, I know what the phone does and I know my mother's voice. I liked it when they let me talk to her. We went to the cabin a lot. I enjoy it up there, with all the bugs and lizards and such, although Mum's mum takes the lizards away from me. She says I kill them. Well, what do you expect, I am a huntress after all.

Mum is now home and I am ever so glad. I spend a lot of time each day just sitting with her and kissing her and being petted. She has a new nickname for me, "Pretty". Not "Pretty Girl", just "Pretty". She can say it a lot faster, I think that's why she dropped the girl part. Her mother still calls me that, tho. Pretty Girl, Little Girl, Baby Girl, and the like. Colin doesn't even know his own name anymore, he only responds to "Baby Kit". Interesting and amusing.

Last night we saw the first treefrog of summer. He was on the big window, and Mum lifted me up so I could get to him. I tried batting him down so I could play better, but he was not on the right side of the window, nor did he even move. Treefrogs are sticky. I know Mum doesn't like when I go after small animals that are not roaches or other bugs she doesn't like, but it's just my nature.

This is all the news I have for now. I am sorry, all my friends who like to see me update. I will try to be better in the future.

current mood: content

10:34 am - Sad...
I miss my mum so much. I sleep with her parents each night because it's warm, but I wish I was able to curl up beside her and cuddle and listen to her talk to me because I'm her special girl.

I miss my mum. Two more months til she's home. Too long...

current mood: depressed
