8:55AM - A Tribute for Kimba
This is for my Kimba, from his belove "Lalorless". :-)
They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.
A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.
And God asked the feline spirit
Are you ready to come home?
Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul
And, as a cat, you know I am most able
To decide anything for myself.
Are you coming then? asked God.
Soon, replied the whiskered angel
But I must come slowly
For my human friends are troubled
For you see, they need me, quite certainly.
But don't they understand? asked God
That you'll never leave them?
That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?
That nothing is created or destroyed?
It just is....forever and ever and ever.
Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

2:03PM - Sad News
"We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only certain immortality,
never fully understanding the necessary plan."
kimbacat died Tuesday morning, January 14, 2003, after a five-week illness. He will be deeply missed.

11:21AM - Good Luck!
This is the story of the Maneki Neko:
In the 17th century, there was a rundown and poverty-stricken temple in Tokyo. The temple's priest was very poor, but he shared what little food he had with his pet cat, Tama.
One day, a wealthy and important man was caught in a storm while hunting and he took refuge under a big tree near the temple. While he waited for the storm to pass, the man noticed a cat beckoning him to come inside the temple gate. This was so startling that he left the shelter of the tree to have a closer look at this unusual cat. At that moment, the tree was struck by lighting.
As a result, the wealthy man became friends with the poor priest, and the temple became prosperous. The priest and his cat never went hungry again.
When Tama died he was buried in the Goutokuji Temple's cat cemetery with respect and love, and the Maneki Neko was made in honor of him. A Maneki Neko in your home or place of business is said to bring in good luck and visitors.
I know that my wonderful doeadear has told you that I have not been feeling well. I don't like being ill, it's not fun! I tried to jump on the windowsill this morning, and my back leg gave out. I don't like feeling like an old man! But, as we cats do, when all else fails, we take a nap!
Think good thoughts for me! I will snuggle with my Doey at night to keep warm through the winter!

Doey was upset with me, because she said I sit on her computer mouse and change all the screens. But, I was enjoying listening to Tracy Chapman! It's better than that crap by Pink or Creed! YUCK!
This morning, a plumber came to our house. He came right into the bedroom, where I was lying on the bed. I was reclining in my usual, regal position. The plumber guy looked at me and said, "Awww, look at the kitty!" THE KITTY? Beg pardon? Does he KNOW who I am? This plumber person made my Doey run up and down the hall, flushing the toilets, while he made all kinds of noise outside. Then, he finally left, but I made sure by checking everywhere, including the garage and the back yard! And, Doey said the plumber was CUTE! Sometimes Doey is a little nutty.
Last night, I was trying to sleep on Fang's feet, and Doey kept moving me! She was laughing at me! She said, "Kimba this is a King-sized bed, why do you have to take up the whole side of the bed?" Because I AM A KING!
Doey is cooking something in the crock pot, I hope it is delicious, and that I can have some. Doey fed me my Fancy Feast last night. She also took a new picture of us!
I really don't like posing for pictures, in spite of the fact I am quite beautiful.
And, here are some tests!
Which Wizard of Oz Character Are You?

You thought I was gonna be that stupid, cowardly lion, didn't you? NO WAY! I am not afraid of other cats! I am, however, afraid of small children. OOOOOH! My Doey was Dorothy!
I don't know this show, but I know my Doey was the sexy blonde chick, woo hoo!
which CSI are you?

I think I need a nap!

11:36PM - Quizzes I got from my Doey!
12:15AM - I am a hot young playboy
Hey I am sneaking onto the computer late at night. Doey took me to the stupid Vet last week and they poked me and looked at my teeth! That is no fun! And there was a stupid dog smaller than me! And the Vet said I am getting old! I wanted to scratch him!
Hey, Doey says I am named after this guy. Do you know him?
I run like that sometimes. Tonight I chased a fat grey cat out of the front yard! What a wussy pussy! He just ran away, ran, ran ran...HAHAHAH.
Do you want to see how handsome I am?
I am upset because Doey says I can't have Fancy Feast, I have to eat the food the Vet gave me because of my stupid kidneys. BLEAH, I am sticking out my tongue! Think I should poop on the Persian carpet?

11:19PM - Not completely true!
10:59PM - Friends
doeadear bought me new treats today! She was worried because I wasn't eating. But, when I heard the word "Vet" I suddenly became very HUNGRY! I hate going to the VET, ICK! I have to be stuffed in a carrier and these GREAT DANES and GERMAN SHEPHERDS are there next to me, and they make me afraid! Then they take me to a room and put me on a cold table and stick a thermometer up my butt! NO!
Doey must think I am DUMB or something, the other night she offered me a FRENCH FRY while Fang was eating Halibut! Hello? I wasn't born yesterday, silly people!
Chasing bugs is so exhausting! Today the house was clean, and I smelled everywhere...mmm nice! And Doey got new clothes, so I jumped in the bag! She doesn't like it when I do that! But, they have to smell like ME! Doesn't she understand?
**yawn** I am going under the table now to sleep until I pounce on Doey when the sun comes over the mountain. It takes forever to get Doey to get up, gee whiz! And she's so grumpy! **yawn**
That female cat isn't in heat anymore. That's cool, I just wanted to be friends.

11:22PM - Poo Poo
My doeadear was mad at me because I pooped on the Persian carpet again. I always poop in the same spot. She knows it's a statement. The house was full of all those people who won't go away, and she was asleep in her bed and the door was closed and she wouldn't let me in! Then, she left the house at night, and all those people were packing suitcases! I was scared! This morning, I didn't want to leave my Doey alone! But, I guess she was taking those people away. Goody! Now I can bug my Doey all the time!

1:51AM - Bleah
I have a tummy ache and I threw up, and Doey said, "You are copying me!" because she threw up yesterday. I dont feel so good and I know my Doey is still sad and confused. I know it will take awhile until things get better. I don't like seeing her sad and lonely, because I love her very much.

5:02PM - Update on Doey
My Doey has been away for a few days, and Fang has missed her, and I was quiet and kind of lonely. She came home, but she was sick and she had to wash her clothes, she said it was worse than when I was sick. Ewww. My grandmeow left a phone message, but Doey doesn't want her to know where she was, because grandmeow doesn't understand. But Doey said Fang loves her so much more than she thought! I coulda told her THAT, silly doe! She needs to rest, but I wanted to let you know she is going to be okay!

<h6>You don't like to show your true self. This is somewhat understandable, considering that when you do, people often try to kill you! Instead of being open and honest, you tend to wear "masks," disguising the "real you" from almost everyone. You sometimes give yourself away to others whom you feel are also outsiders, though. Inevitably, someone will realize you've been deceitful, and then it's time to move on again. You don't like to admit it, but in some ways you are a giant chicken.

I guess I will just lie down now.
12:33AM - Bag Jumping!
It was fun having my Doey with me this weekend. No people running around, no stress. But she left a lot to go places, but today she was with me most of the time. And it was really hot and she let me stretch out in front of the fan and sleep, and we took a nap together. It was fun! Then I climbed into bags and boxes and tried to open the closet door. Doey laughed!
I wish she would sign off and go to bed! I want her to come and snuggle with me!

12:21AM - Boy oh Boy
Doey left me alone for two nights! I was so upset, I barfed! I was so happy she came home! But, she brought everyone with her! I hide under the table to get away from them! Although the little girl was playing with a yo-yo, and that was fun to watch!
I don't think Doey is feeling well, and I know she's not happy. I was snuggling with her in the bed, and I could tell. This makes me sad. :(

My friend shelbyloo has a journal now! She's a HOT OLDER WOMAN! Purrrr...just wish I knew why girl cats are so friendly to me!
Doey and Fang are NOT getting along! Doey just threw something...I hate when she does that! I came and woke her up an hour ago to feed me. I love my Doey, especially when my tummy is full. Now I want to sleep! But Doey woke me up! Grrr...zzzz.
