Hello again! It's me, Kaline. I've been a
Buckcat almost a year now. I'd have written sooner, but it
takes humans a lot longer to move than it does for cats!
Mommy didn't handle the move as well as I did either. She
was so homesick that she went back to Michigan almost every
day for 5 whole months after she moved! Can you believe
that? Oh, she came home at night because she missed me, but
5 days every week she ran back to Michigan. Thank goodness
she's over that now. She goes away to do some kind of people
thing during the day, but she is home before it gets dark
I am learning lots of new stuff all the
time, but one thing I don't want to learn anymore about is
heaven. Remember when Aunt Azzie went to heaven last year?
Well, she's not alone in heaven. Back in February, Chester,
my brother, got sick. He had to take medicine. That wasn't a
big deal. Aunt Azzie always took medicine. But Chester's
medicine didn't work as well as Aunt Azzie's did. One night
while Mommy and Daddy were out, Chester had trouble. He
couldn't feel his back paws, one of his legs, not at all.
Baggle and I wanted Mommy and Daddy to come home right away
and we waited. Chester was very scared. When Mommy and Daddy
got home, they were scared too. Chester had to go to the
hospital emergency room to see a doctor and Mommy and Daddy
A little while later they came back. They
meaning Mommy and Daddy. Chester's carrier was with them,
but not Chester. Chester went to heaven. The doctor couldn't
fix him. When they went to the hospital, they put the afghan
Grammy made for Aunt Azzie in the carrier for him to be
comfortable on. They put the afghan next to our pillow when
they came home and they sat on the couch. They were very
sad. Baggle and I sniffed at the afghan. It smelled like our
brother and the hospital. We sat together on the afghan,
knowing Chester was keeping Aunt Azzie company in heaven and
wasn't coming back home to us. They called Chester's Mommy
in Texas to tell her and all the people cried. Baggle and I
had our paws full making sure they were okay.
Things started getting better when spring
came. When the weather got better Chipmunk Theater started
up again. That has got to be the BEST show! Sometimes Baggle
and I sit by the cat TV screen and the chipmunks will come
right up to the screen, almost like they are right there! I
have to figure out how the TV thing works. Sometimes, people
come into the house right through the screen! It's magic!
Mommy and Daddy have even been on TV. That must be where
they go all day, they're just on Channels Baggle and I don't
Now Mommy is getting ready to have a
party in Michigan for Nancy and Auntie Sheri. Remember when
I told you my parents were both 40? Well now I think
everyone is 40! People are OLD! But that's a good thing,
because there are things I need to do that I can't because
I'm only 2, like blogging.
And speaking of blogging, this will be my
last photoblog entry at this URL,
alexiskalinekitty.tripod.com. Mommy and Daddy are both very
busy and that makes it hard to write a blog as often as I
want to because there are rules about two-year-olds using
the internet without a grownup human to watch them, never
mind that in cat years I AM a grownup! Hmph. Now I'm going
to have a regular blog at http://360.yahoo.com/alexiskaline.
Mommy and Daddy both have blogs there and they can both help
me sigh on so I can blog more often. Please come visit my
new blog often!
Thanks! See you on Yahoo!
