I was 8 weeks old when Momma found me.
I was in the paper, free to good home.
She came to see me & picked me up
& instantly I was loved.

As we drove she picked my name.
He looks like an Oreo cookie she said
& on the radio a commercial came.
Wouldn't you know it, Oreo's!
And I knew I was loved.

I SO liked to play & chase things.
She bought me lots of toys.
She cuddled with me all the time
& I knew I was loved.

She brought me home a girlfriend,
she was fixed, or so we thought,
a few months & 6 kittens later
& still, I was loved.

We moved a few times,
I met new people & saw new places.
She was always there to comfort me
& I knew I was loved.

My human brothers drove me crazy
so loud & noisy.
But they rubbed & cuddled
& played with me
& I knew I was loved.

We met my Daddy 8 years ago
& we moved to his home.
Lots of space to run & chase
& I knew I was loved.

I started to slow down some,
getting older you know.
So they held me closer
& rubbed me more
& I knew I was loved.

I started a blog & met lots of cats
from all over this great big world.
I made lots of friends who cared for me
& I knew I was loved.

I got really sick last week
Momma took me to the vet.
Try this they said &
she tried so hard
& I knew I was loved.

Today I left my Momma
& she is so very sad.
I'm in a better place, she knows.
She helped me to get here,
held me close & hugged me tight
& I knew I was loved.

I was a good, good kitty
Momma told me so,
she asked Jesus to comfort me
& gave me up to Him,
& I knew I was loved.

I'm glad she did,
I'll wait here for her.
Till we're together again
I know that I am loved.

You are missed & you ARE loved.

Sad & disappointed

Ok, I know it's been forever since I posted & forever since I posted before that & I am sorry but the last couple of years have been miserable.

I had a request a couple of weeks ago that I do a post & I knew Oreo had a vet appointment coming up so I decided to wait so I could do it about that. Well, I took him to the vet on Tuesday. His urine was not right, his heart rate was too high & he has developed a slight murmur, he has lost 3 pounds (he only weighed 8 to begin with). Now, we knew he had been acting funny & that he had lost weight over the last few months but didn't realize how much, he's always been so little anyway. He's still eating but not like he used to, very little in fact.

They called yesterday with his bloodwork results & his kidney's are failing & he's anemic because of that. They put him on some meds & some special food, which he seems to like, & said he would like to see a change for the better in about a week. I assume we will have to take him in at that time for more bloodwork. The vet told me that he's seen some cats take to the meds & the food very well & live for another year or a year & a half, but he's also seen some that it didn't help at all. I am, obviously, very worried about him, & I would appreciate any & all prayers for him.

I promise to keep you updated as I know anything & I also promise that when things calm down I will explain to you all the reasons I stopped blogging. That's the sad part of my title, the disappointed part is this, I had 145-150 emails where someone had left comments on my blog & this happened yesterday, a day when I really needed the encouragement, I thought God had put it on someone's heart to start a comment capaign to get me started again. :) Turns out, I got spammed!!! I only checked about 5 of those emails before I just deleted them all so if you left a comment that's why I didn't see it.

Thank you to those of you who still ask after us, who still care. You are few but very appreciated. I will post again soon.
