Hi everybuddy! We did it! The All Blacks won the Rugby World Cup final! I am a very happy mancat today. It was an exciting, clawr biting game that had me on the edge of my blanket right until the final whistle.It was great to watch captain Richie raise the Webb Ellis Cup after a 24 year drought. After all that New Zealand has been through in the last year, it made my heart warm to think how happy all the people will be. There is a perfectly timed public holiday today, Labour Day, which I think a lot of sore heads will be thankful for! ;)

After the presentation, some of the players even made confetti angels! This is Corey Jane and Israel Dagg.Photo taken by Richard Robinson, from the NZ Herald.

As for me, I have news about my latest vet visit. My vets and my mum are not happy with my response to the antibiotic trial and believe the time has come to take more action. I am scheduled to go in for surgery on Wednesday and have full thickness biopsies taken from my stomach and intestines. My mum is just about beside herself with worry, so I am doing my best to be a brave strong mancat and tell her that I will be just fine. I have been going to one of the best teaching hospitals in Australia, so at least we know they get a lot of practice and my risk of complication should be lower. I have to stay there for 2-3 days so that the vets can keep a close eye on me. I am being brave and know I will come home safely, but if you have any spare purrs I would really appreciate some. See you when I get home!

Love Fui.

Fui, know that our purr motors are going overtime for you today and every day.

Mom and dad abandoned us for a whole week and they blocked my paws from getting to the computer to visit my furriends while they were gone. I showed this post to Ginger and he's being very brave in support of you.

xoxo Cory

::pushes Cory aside:: amount of complaining and meowing could get my cat sitter to assist me in visiting. All us kitties tried to pop open the luck.

I'm purring and pacing worried about you. Know that our purrs are focused on you. I spent 3 days in the vet and it's no fun, but they are there to help you.

Manly best buddy purrs,

Oh Fui, of course Harley and I are keeping you in our thoughts and hearts and purrs.
