Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

For those of you who have been reading my dairies as of late, you might recall I lost one of my pooties about two months ago, Tango, due to blood clots and a PE.

I, and his brother, Cash, took his passing very hard. After much hemming and hawing I decided to get another cat to adopt to save off the streets and to try to provide a loving home for.

I asked for advice on how to provide a new home for a cat when one already has a cat at home, and yall gave me some great advice. I am following a lot of it and so far things are going very well.

I thought I would share some photos of the new Overlord, whose name is Cloud. He is a one year old male charcoal gray Tabby named Cloud.

Cloud is a very lovable, very loud pootie. :) I selected him because when I pet him and stopped he made the most cute noise ever. He is very very vocal and although he is submissisive he is playful too, just like Tango used to be.

Anyway, enough of my ramblings, here are three photos of the new guy, one with me, two with my best friend Paul, and then a picture of Cash by himself.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).





First thing I did this AM was to snap a new photo of Cloud by himself, I hope it is good. :)
