Dutchess

About Me

Active within 1630 Days

Hi! My name is Dutchess

I am Domestic Longhair from Lewistown, PA

Nicknames: Dutchie and Baby Girl

Age: 10 years old

Gender: F

Coat: long haired

Education: I was abused before I got dropped off at the Huntingdon County Humane Society. When I finally found my forever home, I was very shy and hid for quite awhile. Now, I love to play and have even taught the foster cat how to play and groom.

My favorite tricks and treats are: I'm very good at playing fetch (I think my owner thinks I'm part dog!). I can also play soccer with the foster cat. and I love to eat Burger King french fries, so sometimes my mommy gets them for me for a treat. I also love to partake in the leftover milk from her cereal bowl. Yumm!

Where I hang out: I love to lounge on the bed or in the window whilst I peer out into the neighborhood.

My favorite grubs: I'm kind of a picky eater. I'm an Iams cat!

My pet peeves: I hate it when my owner locks me out of the bathroom. How dare she?!

What I love about my owners: When the landlord required I be declawed, my mommy paid the extra money to have me laser declawed. This also allowed me to come home the same day. Yeah! Because I wasn't supposed to jump around too much, mommy tried sleeping on the floor. I preferred the bed though. So when she woke up in the middle of the night, I was up above her peering down from the bed.

I love that mommy never gives up on me, spoils me, and loves me unconditionally- .

My cat hobbies: I love to nestle into my owner's arms while we watch movies on the couch.

Pet motto: There is no such thing as too much love!

How We Met

I (the owner) had lived in my apartment for a year and was quite lonely. I begged my landlord to let me have a cat (I offered to pay a pet fee every month). Once I got the ok, the search on petfinder.com took place. For some unknown reason, I have always wanted a black and white tuxedo. When I found two listed at a humane society about 30 minutes away, I jumped for joy. I went in with no expectations. I wanted the cat to choose me. To my astonishment, one lovely black and white, long-haired, 1 year old tuxedo female curled up on lap. I was sold. I filled out the paperwork and a week later Dutchess was on her way home. She hid under the bed for the first month I had her. I would lay on the floor with my arm outreached under the bed just to try to pet her. After awhile, she started coming closer to my hand. A few weeks later, she ventured out from under the bed. Within about 4 months, Dutchess was sleeping next to me on the bed and cuddling up with me on the couch. I CELEBRATE MY BIRTHDAY ON DECEMBER 8TH.

Hi Beautiful Dutchess
Oh, it's been so long since I had the chance to come visit you. I hope all is well with you, Kitters and your mom. We've been busy at the home of the White Paws and not finding enough time for CC. Mom was in the Netherlands for work. She said it was very nice and they really do have lots of windmills. The homes were pretty and lots of people rode bikes to work, so they get plenty of exercise. We are glad to have her back, even though Dad takes good care of us, Mom does special things every day. Like she brushes me way longer than he does and I really need that! Purrs from BABETTE.

Come visit me, Ilse, Inga, Slappy, Roswell - ♥, Babette & Pepe.

More Black Cat Tales, Trivia & Superstitions

In some countries, sailor’s wives kept black cats in their homes to ensure the safe return of their husbands.

Sailors thought having a black cat on board the ship was good luck. But, it was forbidden to say the word “cat” during the voyage, or the trip would be sabatoged. This is because they thought the cat was a disguised witch.

In France, there is a legend about a black cat named “Matagot.” If Matagot comes to your door, take him in and care for him. It is thought this will bring the family wealth.

An ancient Japanese legend tells of a vampire cat that kills beautiful maidens by sucking their blood. The cat assumes the identity of the maiden and preys on her lover.

To reverse the bad luck curse of a black cat crossing your path, first walk in a circle, then go backward across the spot where it happened and count to 13.

Black Cat Stories with happy endings.

Molly the Mouser
In April 1, 2006 a black kitty, Molly the Mouser, 11 months old lived at a deli in Manhattan. The cat became lost inside the walls of the building. The fire and police were called to help, followed by the Animal Care and Control Department. The poor kitty was lost between the walls for 14 days. All types of devices were used to try to find Molly, including drills, miniature cameras, and raw fish to try to coax Molly out.

Finally, two weeks later, on April 14, the rescuers found her wedged between bricks and sheet metal and pulled her out to cheers from onlookers. Molly was fed a wonderful meal and recuperated nicely, returning to her mousing duties.

EARTH DAY

In tribute to our wild black leopard cousins here is A.A. Milne’s poem “Pinkle Purr.”

Tattoo was the mother of Pinkle Purr,
A little black nothing of feet and fur;
And by and by, when his eyes came through,
He saw his mother, the big Tattoo.
And all that he learned he learned from her,
“I’ll ask my mother,” says Pinkle Purr

Tattoo was the mother of Pinkle Purr,
A ridiculous kitten with silky fur.
And little black Pinkle grew and grew
Till he got as big as the big Tattoo.
And all he did he did with her.
“Two friends together,” says Pinkle Purr.

Tattoo was the mother of Pinkle Purr,
An adventurous cat in a coat of fur.
And whenever he thought of a thing to do,
He didn’t much bother about Tattoo.
For he knows it’s nothing to do with her,
So “see you later,” says Pinkle Purr.

Tattoo was the mother of Pinkle Purr,
An enormous leopard with coal-black fur.
A little brown kitten that’s nearly new
Is now playing games with its big Tattoo
And Pink looks lazily down at her:
“Dear little Tat,” says Pinkle Purr.

Happy Office Professionals’ Day to our Mom & Dad bloggers!!

Big Black Cats are an Endangered Species, a story found on the Internet National Geographic. Sad story,but true.

The jaguar is more commonly known to be a large yellow and spotted cat. In some traditions the Jaguar God of the Night was the formidable lord of the underworld. The name jaguar is derived from the Native American word yaguar, which means "he who kills with one leap." But, jaguars also come in a sleek black color of black with black spots. The jaguar once populated North and South America, but is now found mostly near the Amazon Jungle. There is one at the San Diego Zoo named Oscar who is a Brazilian jaguar. In the zoo near Budapest Hungary, there is also a black jaguar. Jaguars are fast animals, and the symbol of the sports car since 1935. It exemplifies sleekness and grace.

The black panther aka cougar(Puma concolor)is an endangered species on the continent of Africa. The panther is a large, long-tailed predatory cat with big paws for its size.Its population grows smaller along with its habitat. Environmental contamination from chemicals like mercury is also endangering these beautiful animals.The black panther is also found in South America and Western United States.
Unfortunately, both cats are being killed by hunters for the big cats beautiful and precious fur and by farmers to protect livestock.

This is a short poem by Zbigniew Herbert, translated by John and Bogdana Carpenter. It is found in the book “The Great Cat” poems about cats. It is simply titled “Cat”

“He is all black, but has an electric tail. When he sleeps in the sun he is the blackest thing one can imagine. Even in his sleep he catches frightened mice. One can see this in the little claws that are growing from his paws. He is terribly nice and naughty. He picks birds off the trees before they are ripe.”

Not all poems end happily if you're a bird or a mouse.

Now for a joke:
Is it bad luck if a black cat follows you?
That depends on whether you’re a man or a mouse.

Marathon Day and Bunker Hill Day in Boston MA, and Patriots Day in Eastern MA (and a day off from work for Mom, yeah!

Yesterday we read about the Bombay and Asian Self.Today a true story about a Bombay cat.

Did you know that a Bombay cat from Brookfield CT was named after Colin Powell, the former Secretary of State? Colin Powell, the cat, was CFA’s 2003-2004 Cat of the Year. He had been judged 290 times and beat out 22,700 other cats for the honor. Colin Powell, former Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (highest military position in Department of Defense) met Colin Powell the CFA cat of the year in Mid-August 2004.

The cat was born on the first anniversary of September 11. Mr. Powell had the honor of naming one of Colin the cat’s sons. The owners of Colin Powell, the Bombay, had a tradition of naming their cats after prominent African-Americans. Mr. Powell chose to name the kitten Ralph Bunche, the first African-American to receive a Nobel Peace Prize.

The sun and the clouds can't make up their mind today; temps are in the 40s-50s! Thanks to all who sent get well wishes to our Mom. She’s beginning to feel better from the cold she’s had for a week.

On Sundays Black Cat breeds are highlighted. Today it is the Bombay (and Asian Self)

The Bombay is the best know breed of the Asian Selfs. Bombays have been produced in Britain and the USA. In Britain it is a cross between the Burmilla/Asian. In the USA it was the result of mating a Burmese with a domestic shorthair. As a result, the two Bombay breeds vary slightly in looks. The Bombay is known as the “patent leather kid with the copper penny eyes.” Its eyes are very bright. The eyes are large and colored copper in the USA, and also gold, yellow, chartreuse, green are acceptable in Britain.

The body is a medium-sized well-muscled body with a wedge-shaped head and a rounded dome. The ears are medium size and wide set. The front legs are slightly shorter than the rear legs. The tail is proportioned to the body and tapers to the tip.

Its jet-black coat has a famous sheen and texture. The coat is close lying, shiny and sleek. The Bombay must have solid deep black jet color to the roots. Coloring should be even, although some tabby markings are acceptable. Little grooming is needed.

The Bombay is outgoing, athletic, affectionate and intelligent. It is also very talkative.

Praying for Zim #111921 to come home.

Mom has been suffering with a very bad cold/flu or allergy this week. A trip to the doctor Wednesday wasn’t much help, so she continues to take her OTC meds and hopefully it will all go away very soon. That is why, except for the CMR page and visiting & voting for COTD, yesterday we weren’t able to do the COTM blog. This morning, we’ve propped mom in her computer chair & put a soft pillow behind her back, so that she’ll be able to help me with my daily COTM blogs. Today is a presentation of Furiday and Caturday. Thank you for your understanding. Pawhugs, Shadow

Ted’s Adventure
A black cat, Ted, from California jumped out of his owner’s car through a window in 1994 and disappeared. Ten years later, the humane society near San Francisco found Ted. Owner and cat were reunited because Ted was wearing a microchip. The owner said the it was like old times, with Ted rubbing against his owner and seemed happy to be home. Now they take rides in the car with the window rolled up.

More Trivia (from“For the Love of Cats”):
Winston Churchill was a well know cat lover. He took his black cat, Nelson, with him when he became prime minister of Great Britain in 1940. A chair was held for Nelson next to Churchill in the Cabinet.

A common belief around the world is that every black cat has a least one single white hair. If you can find it and pull the hair out without getting scratched, a happy marriage will be yours. (Don’t try this on me-I’m sharpening my claws MOL!).

Black cats are welcomed in the theater. This is because many actors have reported “black cat experiences.” It has been reported that seeing a black cat before taking the stage will deliver a show-stopping performance. The black cat is considered such good luck that some actors bring their own backstage with them. Nicholas Cage has a Bombay.

A sunny day with temperatures in the 60s with a slight breeze.

Today is poetry day. This poem entitled “Five Eyes” is by Walter De La Mare

“In Hans’ old mill his three black cats
Watch his bins for thieving rats.
Whisker and claw, they crouch in the night,
Their five eyes smouldering green and bright:
Squeaks from the flour sacks, squeaks from where
The cold wind stirs on the empty stair,
Squeaking and scampering, everywhere.
Then down they pounce, now in, now out,
At whisking tail, and sniffing snout;
While lean old Hans he snores away
Till peep of light at break of day;
Then up he climbs to his creaking mill,
Out come his cats all grey with meal-Jekkel, and
Jessup, and one-eyed Jill.”

Another moment from history; Oscar the Cat- A true story from World War II

During World War II, the German battleship Bismarck had a black cat, Oscar, as its mascot. The Bismarck sank May 27, 1941 when the British destroyer Cossack hit it with a torpedo. The members of the Cossack searched for survivors and found Oscar floating on debris.

The British seamen took Oscar in and renamed him Unsinkable Sam and adopted him. About 5 months later, the Cossack was sunk by a German U-Boat.

The British Aircraft carrier Ark Royal came after to search for survivors. Oscar was again floating on debris. The seamen again rescued Oscar and adopted him. Three weeks later, a German submarine torpedoed the Ark Royal near Gibraltar and sunk the ship. Oscar again was in the water.

The British Navy became superstitious. Oscar was sent to live in a retirement home for sailors in Belfast, Ireland.Oscar lived at the home until 1955 when he passed to the Rainbow Bridge.

Another sunny chilly day,into the 50s.

Today, a poem by Mary Oliver entitled “Morning”

“Salt shining behind its glass cylinder.
Milk in a blue bowl. The yellow linoleum.
The cat stretching her black body from the pillow.
The way she makes her curvaceous response to the small, kind gesture.
Then laps the bowl clean
Then wants to go out into the world where she leaps lightly and for no apparent reason across the lawn,
then sits, perfectly still, in the grass.
I watch her a little while, thinking:
What more could I do with wild words?
I stand in the cold kitchen bowing down to her.
I stand in the cold kitchen, everything wonderful around me.”

4/11 Shadow presents“Le Chat Noir” the Black Cat
Sunday-a beautiful day, sunny in the 70s, a bit windy.
We are getting a late start today.

I am humbly honored to be COTD again today, one year from my first COTD honor. Thank you every kitty who voted for me.

Thank you to all who visited Terry and me on our birthday yesterday, and for all the sweet, treats and gifts! CC is such a wonderful place with many wonderful furriends.

Today another breed with black color recognized by the CFA is highlighted.

The British Black is a shorthair self color breed.
It is said that the invading Romans introduced this cat to Britain. It is usually thought to be a “native” British cat. This group has many other colors, but the Black is a popular variety.

The British Black has a sweet-natured, gentle and generally undemanding temperament. The body is broad chested, stocky and solidly built. The ears are small, neat and wide set. Its coat is glossy, short and dense. The color should be all black to the root, with no rusty tinge. The eyes are large, round and wide set, with the color being either deep orange or copper.

The breed requires regular grooming. It is a quiet cat that requires moderate exercise. It is recognized in all countries.

Today is a Catpaign Free day for COTD

Hi Duchess & Kitters ♥
I'm sooo happy to hear from you and that you sweet kitties are doing well. I'm very sorry to hear that your Mom had computer problems and I'm crossing my paws with you that they are OVER! Tee Hee

I'm so sorry about Simon. I know your Mom loved him so much. I do think it's cool that you got some new white mice....It's good that they're both females...don't need a lot of little ones running around, do we? Tee Hee I love their names...Annie & Esme and I bet they're really cute when they get on their wheel and make it go real fast...Woo Hoo!! I'm amazed that you kitties leave the mice alone...you are very smart and well behaved, aren't you?

I would love to come and visit sometime...I just HOPE I can remember to stay out of the aquarium...Just kidding...I would just like to watch them play. Tee Hee

I hope you'll put some pics up of them and when you do, please let me know, okay?

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I'll talk with you later.

Kitty kisses, hugs and purrs,
Boo Kitty

Hi Dutchess-nice to meet you,thank you for stopping by my page & leaving a vote; I left you one too :) Pawhugs, Shadow

Happy 144th Birthday ASPCA!!!!
Happy Birthday to Terry #100035 and me too! We’re 4 years old today!!!
Concatulations Rhoamin#2921 and Sissy Lee #6454 -celebrating their 3 year Couples Anniversary today!

Black cats have always been thought to bring good luck or bad luck. Here are some superstitions from around the world. These are from “For the Love of Cats”:

1) People in Britain and Japan believe a black cat crossing their path is a harbinger of good fortune.
2) Scottish folks think a black kitten on the porch indicates happiness is to come.
3) Latvian Farmers think finding a black cat in the silo means that Rungis, the god of harvests has smiled upon them.
4) Germans have to pay attention to which way the cat is crossing. A black cat crossing from left to right is a cause for celebration. However, if the black cat is crossing from right to left look out, bad luck may befall you.
5) If you cross at black cat’s path, bad luck of the worst sort will follow you.
6) Petting a black cat is a good thing. Stroking a black cat is said to bring you health and prosperity.
7) The Chinese believe black cats foretell times of famine and poverty.
8) If a black cat curls up on the bed of a sick person, according to Italians, death will soon follow.
9) Don’t be anxious to rid your house of black felines. Chasing away a black cat is thought to seal the deal on bringing bad luck your way.

Hi Dutchie and Kitters
It is so nice to meet the two of you. I haven't heard from Sippies either but I'm sure he is OK. We haven't been online for quite a while so we are trying to catch up slowly. He did leave a general message on his page last week so I know he is fine. Drop him a meow and I'm sure he will answer when he can. Stop by again sometime. Shadow

* MISSE'S PURRSPECTIVE *
Thank you for your blogs and votes. Always good to hear from you.

Congratulations to our COTD Aroostesha!

Vote for Precious #89288 for COTD!

Every evening I take a walk with Mama, attempting to teach her how to hunt and beware of any danger lurking in the dark. (She says it is to check that the gates are closed, but what does she know?) This is a hopeless endeavor, as Mama NEVER gets the subtle hints I give her. I carefully sneak from tree to tree, while she walks recklessly (and noisily I might add) down the pathway. How does she ever hope to sneak up on anything?! At times I'll sit inconspicuously out of sight, ready to attack, waiting to see if the coast is clear, while she practically jumps up and down with impatience, telling me to "get on with it". Sometimes she leaves before I've even completed assessment of our surroundings! Well if she wants to just waltz into danger...

Poem from the Green Mountain Gang:

A vote a day--here's number four
If we could we'd leave you some more
Enjoy your campaign and have some fun
You'll be Queen of March when it's all done!

Thank you!

Thank you for coming by with a vote! It is much appreciated.

Congratul- ations to the COTD Brighton!

Give your vote to Aroostesha #144574 for COTD!

It is 3 a.m in the morning, and you are wide awake ready for some action. Your Mama however, does not seem to be of the same mind. What to do? Here is my take on it:
Your Mama, who is sleeping, is making some sort of loud, discordant purring noise that really could not be good for her. Better wake her up! This is when you sit on top of her head and press her nose with your paw. Even if you do not manage to wake her up, you will get an interesting sound effect! Then try to lift one of her eyelids with one of your claws. This is GUARANTEED to wake her instantly! However, this method while bringing the desired results, may not end in the best of consequences...

Some nice Poems! Thank you!

Slogan from Moochie:

Vote for Misse the Tuxie Kitty,
She's really such a doll!
Sitting on her porch, oh so pretty,

Vote Arootesha #144754 on 02/03/10 for COTD!!!!
AROO! AROO!! No, that is not the call of a noisy beagle running through the woods of Maine. It's AROO's mom telling him not to hit mousepucks in the house, bat at his housemates, or steal any chicken destined for dinner. AROO is a special B & W cat in many ways. He was found in a home of cat hoarders-usually well meaning people; then named Ralph Lauren at the shelter, and finally, was a victim of that pet food contamination event of 2007. AROO is one lucky cat. Even though he & Nala had kidney problems, he survives on special food and the love and understanding of his Mom, who also cares for special needs cat, Thomas. So go over to AROO's page #144754 on Wednesday, read all about him, and bop a vote.

Don't forget we have a new COTM candidate, that lovely Black& White kitty, MISSE #12393. Check out her Fine Feline art gallery too-the ultimate in cat couture...hoping you have warm friends to snuggle up to when it's cold out-Casey, Princess Lee & the CMR. VAROOM!

Thank to all my friends both old and new for stopping by (and for pushing the vote button)! It is always great to hear from you.

My domain is in the Mountains of Northern California - not a palm tree in sight! (Not that I have much experience of them, but I've been told that if you live in California you're supposed to have palm trees -strange...)
We have one building that houses ME, the humans and 5 good -for - nothing dogs that Mama insists on allowing to live there. There is a shed for the goats and another for the chickens, the true purpose of which is to serve as my personal mouse - hunting ground. There is another shed full of all sorts of contraptions whose express purpose seems to be making various levels of noise( of which I highly disapprove- especially the one that throws snow on unsuspecting felines. ) There is also a room where the parrots live and I am not allowed! Humph! Where are their priorities?
The whole place is surrounded by a fence to keep the wild (uncivilized) animals out. (So why the dogs aren't there is anybody s guess.)
In the middle of this, my royal arbor commands a view of all over which I reign. (It is also great for sunbathing.)

Congratul- ations to the COTD Angel Desi!

Thank you for all the wonderful poems!

Her avatar contests are lots of fun,
And very creative too!

Mom and Dad now keep all the bathroom doors shut...I confess, I love to pull the paper and see how far I can go with it. For some reason, Mom doesn't think it's funny at all. :) And Dutchie, I have a problem...I'm an only kitty and so I don't have any kitty to blame stuff on. Tee Hee

Farewell Simon!
On Thursday, January 28th we bid a fond farewell to our beloved Uromastyx Simon (desert spiny tailed lizard). He provided us with hours of entertainment as he was our Live Reality Kitty TV. He was with our mommy for 12 years! We will miss him. So, here's a prayer to all that have lost a beloved pet...

God, lift all the beloved pets up
to a place by your side.
They provided us with love
and ties that did bind.
They deserve a special place
one where dreams do come true.
No worries, only laughter,
and love now from you.

Hi beautiful Dutchie!
Guess what? I am so glad my birdfeeders got filled up again and all my little friends are visiting. In the morning I see them out the big bay window in the front yard. I even sit next to Roswell on the chair so we can both see. He's a very good boy lately. In the afternoon I watch the birds from the dining room window. Usually Pepe joins me for that. It was extra pretty today with a little bit of snow. Hope you had a nice day, too. Purrs and kitty kisses...BABETTE
