I m a sucker for kittens.......

A few nights ago I went to the store around midnight to get a pack of cigs. I dont smoke, so dont think they were for me!! When I got out of my car I heard something that sounded like a loud cry from a cat or a kitten. I didnt pay much attention, I just walked in the store. But when I walked out, I couldnt ignore it, it was so disturbing on so many levels. I had to see what was crying, I was worried a cat might have gotten hit by a car, since it was coming from the other side of the road. So of course, I went to investigate & sure enough I found a little black & white kitten on the side of the road, across the street. I wasnt sure if he or she had been hit by a car, so I tried to see if he or she was ok. But as soon as I walked up to the little guy he tried to hide from me in between a brick wall & a light post. I could tell he was maybe a few weeks old. So I went back & got my mother so she could help me see if this kitten was ok or not. We went back & sure enough he was in the same spot as I had left him. She picked him up & I had started knocking on doors to see if anyone would claim him, no one did. So we took him home & checked him out. He seemed to be ok, just starving & very, very dirty. I gave him a bath & he was limp in my hands, it was so sad. All the white on his body was so dirty he almost looked all black. After his bath, I fed him a few bowls of baby food. Poor baby ate like he hadnt eaten in days. I could tell since he was all skin & bones. The next day I took him to my vets office & had him checked for everything. He was under weight & had a shit load of fleas on him. They deflead him, dewormed him, & sent him home with me. Thats when I found out he or she was a he!!The vet also told me he was about 6 or 7 weeks old. That was 5days ago!!

Since then Ive put out ads to see if anyone would claim him. I also went door to door around the neighborhood to see if anyone knew who this little guy belong too. I did find out that his other Brothers & sisters had all died from being hit by cars. I think his mama died as well!! They were all strays in the neighborhood. So right now I ve been trying to find him a good home, & so far no luck. I have a feeling I have a new addition to my family.

I was thinking about naming him Ciggy since cigarettes had saved his life. What do you think I should name this little guy? Heres a photo to help out!!
Do you remember this photo? Doesnt he look just like this kitten? TOO CUTE!!
Here you can see who made friends with him. None of the other cats, Ivy, or Lilo want anything to do with him. Its so cute, everytime one of the other cats hisses at him Chelsea gets in between them & barks at them. Its so cute! I swear Chelsea thinks she his mama!!
I hope all is well with everyone!! Take care. If you can think of a good name for this little guy please let me know. Love always, MM XOXOXOXO

I m still here!!

Once again I m sorry for being away so long!! I think I can honestly say I m starting to lose interest in blogging lately. That doesnt mean I dont like the friends Ive made through out this journey of blogging. I just dont feel like posting anything lately or bitching about anything. Either my life is really boring or its getting more entertaining then it used to be. I m not sure which one, yet!! But, I do miss talking to all of you! I ll be sure to post when I have something more entertaining to share with all of you, until then Take Care!!
Love always, MM XOXOXO

I miss you!!

Sorry its been awhile!! I have tried to check out some of your blogs from time to time, but I have been very busy the past few weeks so I havent been able to check out all or even leave comments. I cant even begin to tell you all how much I miss each & everyone of you. I hope everyone is doing good & all is well. I also have some information on my tests results from Stanford Medical Center.
I went back to Stanford yesterday & this is what I had found out. They said they are 99.9% sure I do not have MS, although they havent checked me for that. They did say, after getting back all the blood work & X-rays that they now believe 99.99% that I have something called Ankylosing Spondylitis. So its not MS, its AS!! I have never heard of this before in my life, so as soon as I got home I went online & check out anything & everything I could find on it. I was very surprised on how similar my symptoms were to this disease. It explains a lot about whats been happening with my eye & other things that have been happening as well. So now I will have to start injections of medication to prevent all the bad things from happening to me. Thats all I know right now, I go back to see them in 5 weeks to confirm their diagnosis. I have to get more blood drawn, & an MRI done before then. I really do hope this is finally it, & I wont have to go thro anymore tests or what ifs. I m so sick of going back & forth with it could be this, or it is this, or its not this its that. I really want to know & finally just move on & finally just get the right treatment. I just want to move on with my life.
I hope all is well with everyone & as soon as I have some more time I will post more about whats been going on with me. Take care everyone!! Love always, MM XOXO
