My favorite tricks and treats are: He can jump from the top of the 7' cat tree straight down to the floor; if mom doesn't play the laser light game with him, he'll get up on his hindlegs & touch mom's shoulder with his front claws,(usually when she's on the computer!)
I drive mom crazy wanting to be downstairs when she's on the computer & Terry wants to be upstairs and
loves catnip :) and almost any kind of dry treats

My favorite grubs: Fancy Feast-chicken appetizer, Friskies Indoor Delight Salmon; Indoor Delight Beef & Salmon

My pet peeves: Doesn't like to be disturbed when he catnaps; doesn't like loud noises(doorbell- , telephone) or the front door to open.

What I love about my owners: She gives me lots of food, water, toys & love.

My cat hobbies: I love Beauty!!!!!
I like to sleep, chase Terry,& look for bugs flying up in the ceiling; chase the laser light; reach up & knock off the toy balls placed on the bannister

Pet motto: Black Cats Rule!!
FRIGHT NIGHT is at hand
CATS of BLACK roam the land
You can't run & you can't hide
You're better off to stay inside!

How We Met

Shadow's mom was a feral cat. They were rescued one cold April morning in 2006. The entire litter and mom were very shy. His mom was spayed & released. Shadow was put in a foster home for 6 months where he met Terry, a small outgoing feral kitty the same age. The rescue group would only let them be adopted as a pair. A very shy frightened kitty, he was taken to his adopted forever home Oct.11, 2006. His new mom knew he'd be a challenge. Although he remains shy,after more than two years, he lets his human mom pet him at certain times and lets her hear a deep low soft purr

CC would not let me on here Sunday afternoon to do my return visits with my Catpaigning so I'm really sorry for not coming by!

CALLIE #239447 is feeling a bit better today as well as eating her kibbles. Mom has no problem giving Callie her insulin injections which makes it mice all around! Momma also ordered an AlphaTrak 2 Glucose Meter from Amazon and should be here Wednesday. Momma found out that is what Dr. Nancy uses as well.

Momma walked across the street last night with a carrier in hopes to capture Rhaevyn, but she seen momma set it down on the sidewalk and split! She let momma pet her briefly, but not too close to where momma could get her. Looks like Rhaevyn may not be coming inside! MOL!

He blows and blows until he sees A. Q. Mallow snickering in her paw. She got him.... those candles are made to stay lit no matter how hard you blow...

Happy Birthday Shadow!

Enjoy and we hope, we made your day a little brighter.

The Hairballz Rainbow Rider's get back on their bikes.

The sun is high in the sky and we’ve just finished Chef Maggie Meme’s amazing lunch of Beer Battered Fish with Beer Battered Onion Rings; and Barley Beer Soup. Now the regatta continues ~

WHAT is this? A floatin’ Easter basket? Nope, it’s Gin Gin, Maggie Meme and Spike, in a boat decorated as an Easter Basket. Spike has lined it with sod & grass, and Maggie Meme & Gin Gin have filled it with decorated Ukranian East Eggs. Live Easter bunnies (on loan and with full protection regalia) ride’ with them amid red tulips, yellow daffodils, and purple hyacinths. Hope everyone can swim!

Lily & RennieBoots got their Mom to finish off the Kirkland Light and they are in the water! Quincy’s brothers and K. Leo are doin’ a bit better with their St. Pauli Girl & Dr Pepper craft. Not a leak to be seen, to the relief of Rev. Loki who doesn’t want to get his wings wet. Sammy and Luke keep drinkin’ and strappin’ their empties on the side with duct tape as they go. Here come the Hockeytown Cats with Mischief & Dayzee bailin’ water & usin’ the oars, tryin’ to keep up.

K. Whiskers & Q. Talley made their boat from soda cans with some Red Bull & Monster energy drink cans for extra oomph. They’ve also used some carbonated soda cans, unopened until they are in the water when they pop the tops on the "agua con gas" cans and hope their boat takes off like a flash! Or at least doesn’t sink.

Angels Q. Gracie & K. Max have the full moon flag flyin’ high above the “Ol’ Rootie Tootie”. Watch out for the “Misty on the Bay”, Greycee Mist has fired up a battery operated hair dryer to get some extra momentum.

The “Zoo Crew’s Cutter” is bobbing along, slowed down a bit by the full cans of Sam Adams on board but Pique and the guys are doing their best to lighten the load <hic!>. Sebs & Timothy’s cans of choice are Faygo & Vernors, their sisters have outfitted them with crash helmets and water wings, looks like they might be needin’ both before the day is through!

Puzzle got to the beer can shed late, but he is not deterred. He got an old 18 wheeler inner tube and painted a nice sunrise over the water with palm trees and flamingos on the shore. He glued on a can holder shaped like a manatee and used mom's "grab-it stick” and her king sized pillow case with red hibiscus for a sail. Not technically a beer can boat? Those empties training behind in the water say otherwise!

The Beer Can Regatta Concludes ~
As the sun starts to sink in the West, Chef Maggie Meme has put the finishing touches on our supper of Beer Brisket, with Beer Can Chicken in the BBQ pit and for dessert, Beer Cake with Caramel Icing

Bringing up the rear in our Beer Can Regatta is K. Tuck in the “Grogmonsta”. It’s had some tough going since it is burdened down by a full dance floor complete with disco ball. And dancers! And a full bar, dispensing as they go. The Pawty Animals rush to grab it as it crosses the finish line and drag it up into the park, can’t let any of that brew go in the drink!

Our intrepid racers will find entertainment as K. Tuck cranks up the live music and the kitties, now dried off & changed, start dancing to the “Beer Barrel Polka” and move on from there.

We round out the weekend with fireworks over Mallows Bay before we head back to Mallow Castle, where everything has been made ready for the coronation of Queen Quincy.

❀ Reporting from Mallows Bay ❀
Good morning, Beer Can Sailors! The (snicker) worthy vessels have been inspected and are waitin’ to sail to glory. Or to the bottom of the bay, mol. To get us in the proper mood, Guest Chef Maggie Meme has prepared a breakfast of Beer Batter Pancakes, Beer Sausage, Grilled Steak & Eggs with Beer & Molasses, and toast & jam made with Beer Bread.

Throughout the day there will be a Beer Garden for refreshments AND emergency boat repairs, K. Whiskers & Q. Talley brought kegs of catnip juice as well. Beside the reviewing stand, Royal Maestro K. Pushkin conducts the Mallowwood Bowl Orchestra in classical arrangements of beer commercial themes and drinking songs from around the world. A. Q. Cherish is flyin’ her sail plane overhead and takin’ pictures for her memory book which she will share with us.

To start us out, Queen MJ and Prince OJ for the 4th year in a row are sailing “The Eyesore”. Queen MJ waves to the crowd while Prince OJ tries valiantly to bail out the water that is slowly seeping in. They manage to make it out into the Bay, around the marker buoys and to the finish line. Whew! Relieved, they return to the reviewing stand and Queen MJ declares:

“Let the Regatta begin!”

Sams & his pal Exit Rocketman have been collecting “Rolling Rock” cans and they’re off to a good start. Their vessel is staying on top of the water. Mostly. Now come Angel Misty & her Angel sibs, sailing the “Misty on the Bay” with one of Mom’s old bedsheets for a sail and Angel Moki is holding two cans of Dad’s aerosol deodorant out the back of his family’s entry to propel them through the water.

The boats just keep on coming! Here come the Zoo Crew, their tails are dragging in the water but they valiantly sail on. Q. Mimi’s “Queen Mimi”, also makin’ its 4th appearance, does seem to be as seaworthy as she’s claimed. A. K. Easy & the V.I. Kitties are sailin’ in style, the cans are somethin’ called “Steel Reserve” and it’s inspired the kitties inside to turn a few extras into musical instruments. With lots of V.I. Kitties, there are enough to play that wonderful steel drum music from the Islands.

K. Spanky Jack captains the “S.S. Captain Jack”, made with Pepsi cans while K. Steve in the “Sink or Swim” is doin’ a little of both, mol. Evie & Angel Shai are usin’ empty catpaign bottles from their anniversary as pontoons and with all of A. Shai’s sibs paddlin’ and steerin’, the Prince & Princess of the Palms are up front doin’ the Royal wave. Hope no REAL waves come up, mol.

It’s almost Beer Can Regatta time!

As one by one the finishing touches are put on our fine array of watercraft (snicker) and they are loaded onto transports, I wanna introduce you to my Mystery Destination, the place where we will be sailin’ our fine vessels. This is an absolutely for truly real place. It’s on the Potomac in Charles County, Maryland and it is called .. Mallows Bay!

And even better, as if bein’ named after ME ain’t great enough, let me introduce the wonder that is …. Are ya ready for this one …. The Ghost Fleet of Mallows Bay!

Here’s how it came to be: During World War 1 the US Government announced plans to build 1,000 supply ships for the war effort. Boatyards across the country started churning out wooden steamships. But there was a problem: The ships were put together so fast that they were kinda barely seaworthy. And then just as the first hulls were hittin; the water, the war ended. The government was left with over 200 obsolete, leaky boats. Long (long, LONG) story short, they ended up in Mallows Bay on the Potomac where they sit today, the largest shipwreck fleet in the Western Hemisphere. And possibly even the world (Yay, we’re #1. Well, YOU are, I’m a Canadian).

Because they’re made of wood, after almost 100 years each vessel has become a mini-ecosystem with trees up to 40 feet high and all kinds of vegetation growing out of ‘em. The wrecks are now home to Osprey, water fowl, and other wildlife. Bald Eagles nest in the nearby trees along the shore. There’s a picture of the bay with its Ghost Fleet in my gallery.

There’s a Mallows Bay Park there now, with boat ramps and everything, and that’s where the Beer Can Regatta will start tomorrow. Tonight, Prince O.J. & I are gonna kayak through the wrecks in the moonlight. Then we might or might not have a romantic hideaway ready on one of the ghostie ships. We ain’t tellin’. See you there! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Oh, gee, I have been so busy that I almost forgot one of my very favourite holidays! Yesterday was Inconvenience Yourself Day. But I remembered in time to celebrate.

First of all, to start things off right, on Tuesday night I put my alarm clock in the bathroom and locked the door. When it went off in the mornin’ not only did I have to pick the lock with a knittin’ needle (which I had to find first, it’s not like I knit or anything ~ as IF!) to get to the (ahem!) facilities, the stupid alarm was playing “Who Let the Dogs Out? Woof, woof woof woof woof!” full blast the whole time!

Then it was time for my mornin’ shower. Plannin’ ahead, I had turned off the water heater Tuesday mornin’ and hadda wait for it to heat back up. Apologies to those guests of Mallow Castle who might also have been inconvenienced by this one … guess I shoulda posted a warning sign or two, huh?

Then I headed off to my mornin’ golf game but first I hadda unthaw my Harley key, which I froze in a block of ice Tuesday night before retiring. I hadda wonder if I’d even make it to the golf course because I siphoned about, oh … 4.8 gallons of gas from my 5 gallon tank. Yuck! Ptoooie! And of course, I wasn’t carryin’ any spare gas OR my wallet with me! Do I know how to celebrate or what?!

Then it was time to get to work with Prince OJ on our beer can boat. Of course, I hadda blindfold myself first. And mix up the tools!

Then I finished out the day at home watching TV! Of course, because it was still Inconvenience Yourself Day, I had asked Prince O.J. to hide the remote so every time I wanted to flip the channel I hadda get up and do it the cavecat way! Then I finished out this very special day by climbing into my cozy soft bed, which I had of course inconveniently short-sheeted when I made it in the morning.

See why this is one of my favourite holidays of the year?

It seems that when I had that “talk” with the fleas and gremlins about how they’d better quit messin’ around with our beloved CC or else, I musta thrown a scare into all you kitties too. Looks like we’re goin’ into our 4th day where NO one’s brave enough to climb up into the COTD window! Why, I musta even scared ‘em over at the other channels … Dog and Horse Channels’ Windows of Fame are also empty, while Bird and Small Animal Channels have had the same member in theirs since Saturday! And we won’t even talk about how long that Tank of the Week has been in the window over on Fish Channel!

Yeah, weird events are happenin’, but really, what would you expect with me in the Castle? None of it stops the kitties workin’ on their beer can boats. K. Bennie is doin’ a great job tendin’ the beer can shed and Angel Misty & her sisters have commandeered their Dad’s lawn tractor to help shuttle the cans to the various buildin’ projects.

Angels Gracie & Max have dibs on the Fosters, Bud Lite and Dad’s Root Beer empties for their vessel “Ol’ Rootie Tootie”. K. Tuck’s project is still under wraps, but he just took delivery of a coupla kegs and some beer taps? What IS that boy up to?

Spanky Jack is collectin’ Pepsi cans to put together a patriotic lookin’entry. He’s lookin’ for paint now to stencil the name on with. And that begs the question, when ya christen a beer can boat, just what DO ya use?

Angels Red, Moki, Duchess and Frosty’s creation is comin’ along so well that they are considerin helpin’ their Earthling sisters Mischief & Dayzee. MOST Angelic of ya, but remember we wanna keep Dayzee very very busy so she will stick close to home. Gin Gin has gotten together with Maggie Meme and her niece Spike and they are hard at work. Sebs & Timothy have gone for Labatts Blue and Strohs empties to create their masterpiece.

The mystery of Mimi’s missin’ Old Rats Breath empties has been solved. Turns out that her brothers Blackstone & Grayson ran off with ‘em and were playin’ a rousing game of Kick the Can. Psst … I think Mimi mighta kicked THEIR cans, know what I mean?

Close call at MY house, Mom almost found all the cans that Puzzle brought over and stuffed under Mom’s bed! Why, Mom mighta sent my little sis Moji Blackbear to Rehab if Evie hadn’t found the stash first! She’s cleared ‘em out and she & A. Shai and his sibs are all puttin’ ‘em to good use.

Throughout the grounds of Mallow Castle we hear the sounds of kitties at work with staplers, scissors, hammers and of course that miracle substance, duct tape. K. Steve had a little trouble with his glue gun, though. (whisper) I don’t think anyone will notice that patch of missin’ fur! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Wow, what a Full Moon pawty weekend! See why these bashes are legendary? Hope ya liked Prince O.J. & I dressed as Douglas Fairbanks & Mary Pickford, the original power couple, mol. Angel Q. Gracie and her Angel K. Max rocked it as Catgelina Jolie and Purr-ad Pitt. And a big thanks to Angels Elmie & Pouncer for that absolutely rockin’ spread they put on!

We are back at Mallow Castle now and preparations for the Beer Can Regatta go on. Mimi is all aflutter because it appears that someone ran off with some of her stash of beer cans. If ya see anyone besides Mimi constructin’ with Ol’ Rats Breath empties, those cans are probably ill-gotten. This has been a public service announcement, mol.

Quincy says her brothers and her hubs K. Leo are workin’ together, they are safe from the Wrath of Mimi since their cans of choice are St. Pauli Girl and Dr. Pepper. Whiskers and his sisters are safe too, they have a theory that usin’ Red Bull and Monster energy drink cans will give that extra “oomph” to their boat.

Meanwhile, Lily & RennieBoots are workin’ on an entry and so are the Zoo Crew. K. Tuck and his pals are also workin’ on an entry, top-secret and kept under a tarp. Q. Mimi says there had better not be any Ol’ Rats Breath cans under there!

As the day’s construction ends, the kitties gather outside the Great Hall where a “Do Not Enter” sign has been posted all day. There’s been some activity here durin’ our weekend away, and as soon as Evie & Angel Shai come in from workin’ on their boat we’ll let ya in on it. Oh, here they are!

<Ahem!> Today is a very special day for these two kitties, it’s the two year anniversary of the day we all gathered to watch them exchange their vows under the Chuppah in what we thought was probably the last wedding on CC. We are very glad to have been wrong about that!

Since my sis and bro-in-law are partial to the tropics, on this their anniversary I would like to honour them with the titles of “Prince and Princess of the Palms” and celebrate their special day with a luau …. Kosher style.

Our first course is “Shoyu Chicken”, boneless chicken thighs simmered with flavors of soy, ginger and brown sugar, just long enough to fall apart at forks touch. We will of course enjoy this with rice, a typical staple of the islands.

For dessert, there is nothing better than classic Malasadas. These are Portuguese fried doughnuts, light and dense pillows and these ones have guava and lilikoi filling. I dare anyone to stop at just one. Master Baker Angel Sandy has made a very special anniversary cake, seafood & tuna, half & half! She made cupcakes, too!

Aloha…or as many Jewish people in the Islands like to say, Shaloha! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Hello Dahlings!

Just getting’ myself in the mood because here in Mallowwood on Pinto Island not only is it a pawty to celebrate the Full Snow Moon, tonight we have an extra special Full Snow Moon, it’s also … hey wait a minute. I was all set to announce that it’s Academy Award night but it turns out that <ahem> SOMEone who shall be nameless was lookin’ at out of date info. Oscar night is NEXT week!

Well, we’re here THIS week so I think we can still get dressed up like our favourite movie stars and honour the Oscars on this Full Moon pawty night. Q. Lily has been decoratin’ like crazy, K. Spongie is shinnyin’ up the palm trees to string fairy lights shaped like snowflakes and a replica Academy Award sits in the middle of each table.

As a very special treat, we have A K. Pushkin the Royal Maestro conductin’ the Mallowwood Bowl Orchestra playin’ Great Movie Themes. Didn’t know we had an orchestra, didja? Why, I didn’t even know we had a bowl!

And speakin’ of bowls, OH the food that Chefs Angels Elmie & Pouncer have prepared! It wouldn’t even fit in my blog so the menu posted only on the CMR page!

By the way, Prince Oscar Jon is all pumped about the “Oscars” because he is convinced that the whole thing is named after him. I just hope this ain’t gonna be like that time he commandeered the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile on its national tour! Um, my Prince, that statue you just set down as the centrepiece of the head table IS a replica, ain’t it? Um … AIN’T it?

Be at the ready, Quincy, I think there just may be a slight chance that we might be needin’ that bail fund you’re holdin’ … then again, Pinto Island has no extradition treaties with anyone, I think we might be alright.

Let the celebration begin! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

“♫ And the DAYS dwindle down … to a PREC-ious few …. ♫” Okay, okay, I’ll try not to be such a drama Queen. But I’m goin’ into the last week of my reign, hard though it is to believe! To illustrate how fast my time in Mallow Castle has flown, I’ve changed my profile picture from my Mom’s masterpiece to the one that the CMR Crew created for their COTM Hall of Fame page. I wanna say once again how much I appreciate all of you lettin’ me immerse you in the weird & wonderful world of Mallow this month.

I tell ya though, I think there must be a curse on Q. Mimi’s golf course! When SHE wanted to do it, CC went down. And now the day I had the grand opening, CC went down again. Does CC just not like golf or somethin’??

Well, CC actin’ up yesterday mornin’ gave us more time to spend on the links, and we thank Ana & Haley & their Angels for hostin’ board games day in the Great Hall, and Chef Engine for the great grubs. Some of which included actual grubs, mol. The latest entries in the Beer Can Regatta are Q. Kelsee and the Hockeytown Cats, and Q. Talley & her family are gonna build a boat too. Theirs will be the one made outta soda cans. The Regatta sails next weekend, I’ll keep ya posted.

Now … do I dare ramp up the Mallow-ness to almost full power without blowin’ CC’s circuits again? I hope so, because today I wanna introduce you to another special part of my CC world, Angel Q. Gracie’s special Caribbean retreat of Pinto Island.

Some of you need no introduction, Queen Gracie reigned from Pinto Island back in July of 2012 & some of us loved it so much we decided to become semi-purrmanent residents. I built myself a humble beach hut and to my amazement, around it has sprung up over the years the beach hut community of Mallowwood (yep, actually I DO name everything after myself, just call me the Donald Trump of CC!). A. Q. Gracie even honoured me with the title Mayor Mallow of Mallowwood, and before I crossed the Bridge Prince OJ built me a rockin’ tree house overlookin’ the entire island. This is where he popped the question on what turned out to be the night before I crossed (sniff). This awesome treehouse is also where we stay while on Pinto Island and the special Moon Flag of Mallowwood flies from the balcony whenever Mayor Mallow is in residence.

A long-standin’ tradition on Pinto Island is the Full Moon Pawty, and it just so happens that the full moon is tomorrow and that’s why we’re here! Guest Chefs Angels Elmie & Pouncer have been cookin’ up a storm in preparation for our arrival so let’s get settled in. ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

The traffic in & out of the beer can shed has been brisk, with kitties cartin’ away cans (not in those shopping carts we already took back to the supermarket, I hope!), choosin’ up teams and sketchin’ out carefully guarded plans for their beer can vessels. So far my signup sheet has A. Easy & the V.I. Kitties, Spanky Jack, A. Misty & her sisters … Steve is in as long as no one makes him be the rudder like last time (snicker), my bro-in-law A. Shai’s family are in and he & Evie are gonna pilot their special love boat. Dayzee’s family are gonna keep her busy so she don’t even think about runnin’ off and explorin’ again. Good thinkin’!

Mimi says that her “Queen Mimi” is as shipshape as it ever was (infer from that what you will), so she’s gonna head for her Extreme Adventure golf course with her catty J.C., who is feelin’ better and eager to carry some golf clubs around. The course is busy today too, with kitties tryin’ to master that tricky last hole. Medics are standin’ by!

For those who wanna take a break from beer can construction or would just like to stick to indoor activities, you’re in luck. Ana, Haley and all their Angels are gonna host a games day for us in the Great Hall! They’ve brought all our favourites: Mousetrap, Twister, Catopoly, Go Fish, you name it. Bring your own favourites along too.

I’m gonna be a bit later gettin’ around to your pages today, the blogger is abandoning her duty this mornin’ to go to a class on home renos, and she has a coupla other places to stop too. So make yourselves at home and Chef Engine is still here with her culinary creations.

Apologies for wreckin’ CC yesterday, I guess so much Mallowness just blew their circuits! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Good morning, loyal subjects! If anyone ain’t heard yet, Dayzee is HOME!!

And in that celebratory spirit, have I got a treat for ya today! My Royal Greenskeeper Q. Mimi has been workin’ hard and the climbin’ orchids look really great on the walls of Mallow Castle. Now that we found out who’s been markin’ his territory on ‘em and dealt with the problem in a timely fashion, that is. But Mimi wanted to have this appointment in the first place so that she could do a very special project for us.

Some of ya might remember that when Mimi was Queen CC had some ginormous issues and went down for a whole week! That is one entire week of Mimi’s time in the Castle just gone poof! And because of this outrage, my pal Mimi got Gremlin’d right outta some plans she had to build us a rockin’ Royal Extreme Adventure golf course! Well, that will never do! I told Mimi that durin’ my time as Queen we are gonna see if we can make her vision happen.

So without further ado, let’s grab our clubs, sign our waivers and try our luck. Circulatin’ around the course for our convenience will be Guest Chef Engine in her mobile Weiner Wagon, purveyin’ her finest cuisine. She has Crispy Canaries on sticks, Flash-Fried Filet of Frog and Buttered Bat Biscuits. And that’s just for starters, wait’ll we get to the clubhouse! Saucy Mouse Ribs with a side of Crispy Crouton and Catnip Casserole, anyone?

So, did I hear someone poo-pooh-in’ that golf is a boring game for old dudes? Not around HERE it ain’t! We are talkin’ Extreme Adventure after all! This means that OUR water hazard is not just a pretty pond, a big guy we affectionately call “Ol’ Toothy” has taken up residence and ya never know when he or his pals will show up to try & carry your clubs! I’d advise ya to tip’ em well! And remember, those large patches of sand are part of the golf course, NOT the emergency facilities.

There are some pictures down in my gallery, enjoy! Oh … and watch out for the last hole, it’s a doozie! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

I wanna thank everyone who’s put in their 2 cents worth about affordable microchippin’, I think we got some good info-sharin’ done and identified some options for families who might have a lotta kitties and not a lotta money. Our CC kitties absolutely rock!

Mom hadda put my Royal blogs on hold for a while, and now we come back & see there’s a Welcome Home pawty for our friend Dayzee who has been missin’ for a couple of days! It’s Crab-Stuffed Flounder Day and I am headin’ straight over with a big batch for Dayzee and another batch for J.C., who has finally been sprung from the Vetspital! First, though, I wanna give ya a heads-up on an event comin’ up in a few days:

Remember back on Superbowl Sunday we started collectin’ beer cans for a special secret project? Well, K. Bennie, my Royal Steward of the Beer Cans, has been workin’ hard receivin’ donations as they come in and sortin’ ‘em by colour, and it’s time to let ya in on the project: Next weekend will round out my time as your Queen with my fourth annual Beer Can Regatta.

More details will come later, but for those who ain’t been part of this extravaganza before, it’s inspired by an actual event that’s been goin’ on every year since 1974 in Darwin Australia where “Participants create boats using empty beer cans, soft drink cans, bottles and milk cartons. The vessels are not tested for seaworthiness prior to water events, and those that fall apart are part of the day's entertainment”

So we are throwin’ open the doors of the Beer Can Shed so you can stock up and start plannin’ your entries. Or doin’ any needed repair work or revisions on the ones from other years. Prince O.J. & I will once again be sailin’ that fine vessel “The Eyesore” and we have a very rockin’ body of water lined up to sail our boats in, with a very special Guest Chef and that’s all I’m gonna tell ya till the end of next week.

Oh, one more word to the wise: If K. Bennie offers ya a brewski while you’re in the shed choosin’ your cans, ya might wanna think twice. I hear tell he has been dumpin’ out those cans that ain’t quite empty yet & mixin’ it into one big Frankenbrew. I’m not sure *I* am even brave enough for that! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

From across the country the responses to my question yesterday about affordable microchippin’ have been rollin’ in. Here’s some of what we’re hearin’:

Q. A. Sakura in Illinois says “I was chipped, as are my sisters. Like at your shelter, Mom was told to just keep her address and phone current with ours. No cost at all, we guess it was included in the adopty fee.”
Q. Lily in Indiana reports: “We got microchipped from the shelter and there are no yearly fees; but with Rika our pooch, who wasn't a rescue, she is registered with Home Again and it costs mom about $18 a year to keep her registered with them.”
K. Whiskers in California expands on this: “All of us kitties are registered with and it does costs $17.99 (each) for the annual membership. We think it might cost because they have other perks; like help with lost pet alerts and posters, and found pet travel assistance.”
But maybe the annual membership and perks are options? Q. Mimi in Virginia says “Our chip company is Home Again. Our vet says we pay once for implant and registration.”
Hedley in California tells us “The Animals and I got our chips through our vet clinic, and the outside clowder got all theirs through the city shelter. Mom remembers paying initially for the chips and entering the data into a computer database, but she doesn't get charged to maintain it.”
Q.A. Misty in Pennsylvania shares: “My sisters are all micro-chipped. Mom registered them at Avid. It was free. Mom just needs to update the info if she moves or when my sisters cross The Bridge. They sent plastic collar tags with the info on it too. Mom later got the girls silver tags from Avid with the info and she did have to pay for those.”
Q. A. Duchess in Tennessee tells us: “Three of us are chipped with They are a non-profit registry that was founded in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina. There is no registration fee and no annual fee, either. It's a great place and they register several brands of microchips. You can check out their site and see if it might be of value to you or any CC members. We were chipped at our local Tractor Supply and it only cost $15.”
After hearin’ from A. Q. Duchess I just hadda check out, it’s a very cute site and packed with info! Along with the microchip registry, the site also helps you find a chip clinic in your area, and has sections devoted to S/N, Adoption & Foster too. They’ve been around for 10 years, check it out!

So it looks like there are some different options out there. Hope some of this is helpful! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

I have run into a bit of a dilemma. I had some time this week set aside for a special project that my Royal Greenskeeper Q. Mimi was gonna work on, but her brother J.C. and his plumbin’ issues have kinda taken top priority right now. I do hear that J.C. was doin’ well yesterday and paws crossed, he might be comin’ home today. Let’s send him all the good vibes we can and I’m gonna run him over more Angel dust too.

Meanwhile … yesterday I told another lost & found story with the happy ending involvin’ a microchip, and it reminded me that durin’ my campaign a coupla our bigger families told me that they would like to microchip everyone but they couldn’t afford to because of the yearly fees. What yearly fees, I asked myself? I got my microchip popped into me at the shelter, and they just told Mom that if she ever moved to make sure & let ‘em know. My Earthling sibs are tattooed and those all track back to the vet who did ‘em, and same thing, Mom just has to keep her address current. But we’re in Canada. Could it really be that different down south?

So with some time on my paws I thought I’d look into that and according to one website:

“ … in the United States, unlike many other countries, we do not have a central database for the registration of microchipped pets. Further, most people aren't aware that according to studies published in the Journal of American Veterinary Medical Association (JAVMA) over 40% of pets that are implanted with microchips cannot be found in a pet registry database anywhere. Deep rooted issues related to pet registration greatly undermine the overall potential of microchipping; a major impediment being the fees required to maintain a registration.”

Now I would really doubt that the pawrents of the lost & found kitties in my stories were payin’ annual fees for years on end, so we must be missin’ somethin’ somewhere!

I did find one website that offers free registration, I don’t know anything at all about ‘em besides what they say in their blurb:

“ .. it's FREE for the life of your pet and can be used by anyone with ANY BRAND of microchip. No registration fee; no maintenance fees; no fee to update your contact information; no fees at all as long as you register your pet with”

Now bein’ in a whole ‘nother country I am at a disadvantage here, so I am throwin’ it out to the CC community. I know a lot of you are very savvy about things rescue related and I would sure like the pawrents of ALL our CC friends to be able to protect everyone without breakin’ the bank.

I’ll pass on anything helpful you can tell me, watch this space. ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

We had a blast yesterday pawtyin’ our whiskers off at Mallow Castle!

Now let’s tote up the Valentine’s Day carnage, shall we? First of all, at the MHL Arena we had a surprise weddin’ between Angel Shilo and Angel Q. Snuggles! Then our pal K. Pete announced his engagement to his sweetie Neekah Boo! My fellow Hairballz rider CoCo also got engaged to a nice kitty named Sunshine who’s a housemate of another of my fellow Hairballz riders, Maggie Meme. Congratulations, all you lovebirds!

I think the little guy with the arrows has packed ‘em away for another year and all you confirmed singles out there, the coast is clear.

Now that I’ve got a chance to read the weekend newspaper the Hairballz dropped off for me, what should I find but another brand-new lost & found story! It’s about a human named Robert Connell and his special friend, a gray kitty named Hemi.

The Connells were livin’ in North Carolina in 2009 when they found Hemi as a kitten on the engine of their car. Robert was in the Marines, and Hemi was more than just a cat to him. He was like a person, who could listen to some of Robert’s deepest thoughts as he struggled with PTSD.

In 2011, Robert was deployed for a year and after he left, Hemi went missin’.

“He went looking for Robert when he was deployed. I was heartbroken when he got out and we couldn’t find him,” Jennifer Connell told Love Meow. After months of searching, the Connells hadda make a move to North Dakota without their beloved pet.

Then, about two weeks ago Hemi was found by Craven Pamlico Animal Services at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point. Staffers found a microchip on him which led them to Robert & Jennifer Connell, who were stunned to get the good news all the way from North Carolina!

This cool story don’t end there, either. See, Hemi was scheduled to fly to his new home in Bismarck North Dakota, but the bad snow storms they’ve just had out that way meant that thousands of flights were cancelled, including Hemi’s. Did that stop Robert? No it did not! He decided to drive the close to 2,000 miles to bring home the beloved friend he hadn’t seen in four years.

Trinity Smith, Craven County animal control supervisor, tried to talk Connell out of the drive because of the bad weather he was certain to encounter along the way. A weekend blizzard walloped much of the eastern U.S., including parts of the Carolinas.

"But he's a Marine," she said.

Connell left home Saturday and arrived Monday afternoon at the shelter.

“Geez, you look a little older and wiser,” Connell told Hemi when he first saw him.

Craven Pamlico Animal Services took the opportunity to urge all pet owners to microchip their furry friends just in case they go missing, like Hemi. But we knew that already, didn’t we? ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Well can you believe it? ME! Queen of Hearts for February! Me who not too many years ago was lurkin’ in King Barney’s tunnel of love with <ahem> a certain unnamed accomplice, droppin’ water balloons on the smoochers. And passin’ out T-shirts that said “Love is in the air – Try not to breathe”. And here I am, Queen of Hearts. Who says that the Universe don’t have a sense of humour?

So of course I’ve gotta bring my own special brand of Mallow-ness to the occasion, and I have found it. Like I mentioned the other day, Feb 14th is also …. International Quirkyalone Day!

International Quirkyalone Day is a feel-good alternative to the all the hype of Valentine’s Day, a celebration of ALL kindsa love: romantic, platonic, familial, friendship and of course, lovin’ and valuin’ the uniqueness that is each of us.

Now if you don’t know that’s right up my alley, you ain’t been payin’ attention so far! So callin’ all Quirkyalones and Quirkytogethers, all day today Prince O.J. & I are hostin’ a Celebration of Hearts at Mallow Castle, page #237624

Guest Chef Sammy is cookin’ up a Mexican Fiesta Feast, with some help from Luke & Chyna and Rev. Loki. Why, I even hear that they have a certain retired MHL mouse puck named Tom who’s been workin’ all through the night preppin’ veggies! DJ Quincy has the music all picked out and her hubby Leo is gonna dazzle us with his lighting skills! You can dance with your sweetie, dance with your family, dance with your friends, dance to your own drummer. Just dance! I’ll bet Quincy will even play the Macarena if we ask her nicely, mol.

But wait … there’s more! Feb 14th is also Ferris Wheel Day, so we have a big one set up on the grounds all day. Ride it with your friends, ride it with your sweetie … and the operator just might be purrsuaded to stop it at the very top for a few private minutes. IF he pays his Royalties, mol.

Hi K. Shadow! Thank you
for stopping by. Mom told me that your Mom hasn't been feeling all that great and is probably tired, so I'm humbled that you would take the time. I'm happy that you still come to hockey! Give your Mommy big hugs and purrs from me and tell her to have a nice weekend. Hugs, Pique and the Zoo Crew

Oh, kitties! Another friend has crossed the Bridge (sniff!). Captain Rascal of the Voracious Frisky Predators mouse hockey team and the best poker player in ALL of White Squirrel Campground, joined us here yesterday and is watchin’ over his Mom & family while learnin’ to maneuver on the ice with his brand new wings. We send great big furry hugs to Mom Sue and New Angel Rascal’s fursibs the Hockey Boys and the Frisky Pearls. We’ve saved all of you a front-row seat for today’s Chinese New Years parade.


It’s Chinese New Year, and we’re havin’ a parade at Mallow Castle to welcome in the Year of the Monkey. Even better, it ain’t just the Year of the Monkey, it’s the Year of the FIRE Monkey! Before the parade, the ladies can get their claws painted with colourful monkeys and of course those awesome Chinese dragons. We’ll fly traditional kites on the Castle grounds and then the parade will wind through the streets of CC before we all gather for a very special banquet.

My sis Evie is takin’ it easy today, she has a bit of a UTI goin’ on right now but she leaves the festivities in the capable paws of today’s Guest Chefs, the team of Chefs Callie and Angel Maggie. They present ~~


** Chef Angel Maggie says that this selection of foods is supposed to bring good luck all year! **

• DRUNKEN CHICKEN – Chicken cooked and marinated exclusively in historic Shaoxing wine and then cut into bite-size pieces with one swipe of a Chinese cleaver, watch out!
• PU-PU PLATTER - A combination of egg rolls, fried won ton, teriyaki beef strips, spareribs, fried shrimp and fried chicken wings.


• SZECHUAN BEEF - Shredded beef with bamboo shoot, green pepper and vegetables stir fried in chili peppers.

* All Entrees Served with Steamed or Fried Rice, Fortune Cookie & Ginger Tea
• THE GREAT WALL OF CHOCOLATE - Six rich layers of frosted chocolate cake topped with semi-sweet chocolate chips, served with fresh berries and raspberry sauce.

Are we full yet? After dark, we’ll gather on the grounds for a rockin’ fireworks display and Captain Rascal and all the Angels on their clouds will have the best seats in the house. Who’s ready to get up to some “Monkey”-shines? ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Kitties are still relaxing around Mallow Castle, and after Queen MJ finishes sharing her last two Lost & Found stories kitties start to speak up about their own families’ experiences. Kelsee says:

“Mom told me that her Grandma moved away from Detroit up North to Oscoda and couldn't find her cat on the day she left, so they moved without it and came back several times to look for it at the house and never found it. But one day they heard a meow at the back door of the new house and lo and behold..that darn cat found her way to the new home all by herself...they knew it was her cause she still had her collar on”

Furry heads nod in agreement and Rhoamin adds:

“Mom and dad had a gray tabby named Spunky who hitched a ride one day and ended up in another town about 30 miles away!!!!

When he was about a year old, he had gotten hit by a log truck and amazingly survived with only having to amputate his tail as he had no control of it and a fractured pelvis. He looked like a Bobcat after his tail gone as he had the black fur tufts on both ears like a Bobcat.

One day, there was a Lin Care van at the neighbors and Spunky was a curious guy and got in the van. By time the driver got to his next destination he had been surprised by a cat! He asked the people if they could keep him till he could find the owners, as he had an idea the kitty was Mom & Dad’s. A week later when the man came back to the neighborhood he asked Mom if they were missing a kitty. He told Mom & Dad where Spunky was, so they called the people who were keeping him & made arrangements to go get him the next day. Turned out that they knew each other!!!!”

KC and the Zoo Crew have a story to tell too:

“Our Mom has had three cats go missing, and two of them were eventually reunited with her. The first cat got lost when the family moved. Mars came with them but apparently got lost the first time she was let out and ended up back in the old neighborhood. For months people would call saying they'd seen her and Mom would go looking, only to be disappointed. Then, after a full year, Mars showed up at the new house! There were identifying features that proved it was actually Mars come home. Mom was a teenager then and was so happy to have her cat back!”

Everyone smiles as Kelsee has the last word “...and people say dogs are smarter then us...NO WAY!!!!”

I’ve got no argument with THAT! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Decisions, decisions, decisions!

You know, sometimes durin’ my campaign I just could NOT choose a story to tell ya! Here, let’s change gear for a minute and while we’re recoverin’ from the Mardi Gras festivities I’ll read a couple and see what YOU think:

“Sept 2, 2014 - Cripple Creek, Colorado ~ Emerson the cat returned to its owner Saturday two and a half years after he went missing.

“Emerson's owner, Frankie, believes the cat fell from her third story balcony in Littleton and walked away. After six months of searching for the cat, she assumed he was dead.

“Frankie was working on her property in Cripple Creek when she saw a cat in the distance. At first she didn't know it was Emerson. But then the cat sprinted to her and started to lick her. He had found her; miles away from her Littleton home and almost three years later.

“The cat was found severely hungry, with a healing wound and what looks like a previous head injury.

“Emerson is now resting at home with Frankie. She calls him the "miracle kitty."

And then there’s THIS one:

“November 12, 2013 – Racine Wisconsin ~ Lindsay O’Neill never thought she’d see her cat Sammie again. The sweet tabby had been missing for five long years. But last week, O’Neill got the call that owners of missing pets hope and pray for … Sammie had been found!

“According to the Associated Press, a local resident had seen the cat around her yard and became concerned about the cat as the weather was getting colder. The woman brought Sammie to the Wisconsin Humane Society, where they checked the cat for a microchip. Fortunately for everyone, Sammie had a microchip and it was up to date with O’Neill’s current contact information.

“O’Neill couldn’t believe Sammie was coming home. At first she was worried that he might have changed during his long tome away but reports that he’s the same affectionate, loving cat she remembers. Other than a bit of a skin condition and a healed mouth wound, Sammie’s in tip top shape health-wise too.

“Alison Kleibor, director of the WHS Racine Campus, says microchips are critical investments for every pet owner. “Microchips make reunions like this possible. They are inexpensive and very effective”

See my dilemma? While I was preparin’ my campaign I just found SO many great stories out there, how could a kitty pawsibly choose? ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Happy Mardi Gras! As you can see by my profile picture, my handsome Mardi Gras King & I are ready to celebrate. We’re gonna dress up in our feathers & beads and take in the parade from the best vantage point there is, and then we’ll have an sumptuous banquet prepared by today’s Guest Chef, Prince Oscar Jon himself! As some of you already know, Prince O.J. is an accomplished chef who has served many of our CC Royals over the years. I’ll let him set the stage for today’s banquet:


Oscar Jon can't help remembering the journey to this pawty...the supreme pawty; the one he's cooking for his Queen Angel Mallow. It all began with a slide down the castle stairway. Little did O.J. know when the then, Miss Mallow, landed in a flop on his tummy that love would bloom between he, the tubby Maine Coon from Missouri, and she, the beautiful and adventurous Siberian from British Columbia. Now, he gets to help with the Mardi Gras meal for all the cats and kitties that can crowd into the Castle Hall (& believe O.J., it's a huge place for a Cajun spread). Shipped in by special barge and a tug boat, only the freshest of ingredients will do. Steve, Tucker, Spanky Jack, Casper & Hedley are wearing their "chef" aprons and soon the meal will commence.

Shrimp Creole
Buffalo Shrimp
Alligator Meatballs
Collard Greens
Fried Okra
Oven Baked Jambalaya
Cajun Style Baked Sweet Potatoes
Dirty Rice
Red Beans & Rice

For dessert; A Mardi Gras Colorful King Cake and Sweet Powdered Beignets

Drinks on the House: Southern Sweet Tea, Fresh Lemonade, Sparkling Water or Hot Steaming Coffee

Ah, but what about those cats hanging around back in the "still" area where the nights are cool and the band plays on...use your imagination my friends. They also will enjoy a tasty banquet more to their rowdy palate. A thick rich roux of swamp rat and crawfish, finger bites of liver rolled in (oops better keep that a secret) a rich shrimp pasta dish and Dunkin Donuts for all. Drinks come from a spigot or barrel -- with the band playing "When the Saints Go Marching In."


Oh boy, I hear that Dixieland Jazz band startin’ up already! I am grabbin’ my beads and headin’ over to liberate my Maine Man from the kitchen for a dance or two .. or three …
