2/7/13 Finally on CC --- Happy Thursday!
King Barney here, I hope. We will see when I finish this blog and hope I can at least post it to this page and on the CMR. Will do as much delivery as CC allows. We take it that everyone has been having problems too. Other than last night and today, everything has been going well around the castle. Mom's left knee is hurting, so she is trying to rest it today.

Well today's story is a rather short one about mom's first kitten, not counting college days. It was about a year after she began living at home with Gmeow, just before A.Pasha came into the picture. Her mom's cousin Katie and her husband lived just outside a small town in Minnesota on 80 acres of wooded land. They called their home the Tall House in the Woods and it was one of mom's favorite places to visit. Katie loved cats and rescued many during her lifetime. Katie is still alive, but has severe health issues and is no longer able to live in her home and is in a care facility.

Anyway, one day mom was visiting Katie and Katie had a momcat and litter of six kittens that had been abandoned in the woods. She knew they were abandoned, because the mom and kittens were all friendly and allowed her to handle them. Mom played with the kittens that day and when she was ready to leave, Katie brought her one of the kittens, a boy named Tigger and told mom to take him home. Mom protested that she couldn't. Gmeow didn't like cats and she couldn't. Well, Katie wasn't taking no for an answer. She gave mom a litter box and litter, a kitty bed and bowls, so the kitten went home with mom. Gmeow wasn't happy, but mom promised to keep the kitten in her room and kept her promise for sometime--- a few months anyway.

Well, today's story is not merely about how mom got her first kitten, but also about Tigger's first best friend. You will remember that at this time, mom did not have any other pets, so Tigger was very special to her. If she knew all the dangers of cats going outside that she does now, this friendship might never have happened. Anyway, Tigger was in the backyard and mom went out to look for him. She heard him climbing around in a large pine tree and went to call him down. The tree had thick branches and mom stood right next to it, trying to figure out where Tigger was. Just then a head popped out, but it wasn't Tiggers--- it was a grey squirrel! Then, another head close behind--- Tigger! Mom quickly went to rescue Tigger, thinking the squirrel was after him. She took him inside to safety. Well, that might have been the end of the story, but the next day mom heard scratching on the screen door--- The grey squirrel was hanging on it, as if to ask it Tigger could come out to play! Tigger was at the door in a flash--- and wanted out to play with his friend.

Well, that is the story for today and now mom needs a bit of purr therapy after remembering that story and her very special Tigger cat. Remember to vote for Josiemae#193862, so she can be your Queen of March.
