How We Met

We heard at a party that Oreo was expecting kittens and we really wanted to adopt two siblings. When the kittens were old enough, they interviewed us. Their house was a bit crazy that day with two barking dogs, several older cats and a litter of kittens. Everyone was interested in sniffing the visitors. Well, almost everyone. Babette hid under the coffee table and popped out to swipe each of her siblings as they went by. It made us laugh. When she finally decided to check us out, she was very sweet and snuggly. She didn't want me to put her down, so we knew she would be our girl. As for her brother's interview, see Pepe's page #112940

Hi White Paws,
Thank you for all your thoughts & prayers for Merritt. Mom didn’t think her heart could ever break again after Yum Yum crossed Rainbow Bridge, but it has. Mom is so sad with the loss of Merritt. Mom feels sure Merritt is gone & she will never see her again. Tomorrow is two weeks since Merritt got outside and Mom hasn’t had one sighting of her. Not knowing where or how Merritt is, is causing Mom so much pain. She can't seem to be able to control her tears on most days.

A Powerful Rumble Fills The Air
A Powerful Rumble Fills The Air
Is it an Earthquake? Is it Thunder? No it’s the powerful rumbling sound of eleven beautifully painted Harley motorcycles, cruising down the street they’re all heading for The Babette’s driveway and pulling in to share Adoptiversary Wishes with their friend.

The helmets come off to reveal Zoe Monique, Cyndee, Thundie, Angel Mallow, Ammie, Talley, Coco, Sir Malachi, Elvis, Kali & Queen Lola all of the Hairballz Rainbow Riders.
On the back of the bikes are flags representing their two lost honorary members, Doodlebug and Yum Yum

they all dismount and in turn, they present Babette with cards and brightly wrapped gifts. There are feather toys, catnip teasers, bouquets of Balloons, Vanilla catnip cake, with mice cream cups and boxes of Kitty safe Chocolates. Talley and Sir Malachi unfurl a big banner with “Happy Adoptiversary Babette” emblazoned on it. After an enthusiastic (if not very musical rendition of Happy Adoptiversary, they all exchange hugs & purrs with him and get back on their bikes to head out to their next destination for the day.

Day 26 - Yum’s Yikes ‘n Yarns,
Babette and the White Paws, thank you so much for my COTM vote today. I'm sorry to hear you have had to run to the doctor so much for yourself & mother-in-law. I hope things will be better for your humans soon.

HURRICANES - continued from yesterday….

If the air pressure is lower over warm water, it attracts moisture from the water. This moisture rises and condenses into clouds. As the air pressure continues to drop, more and more moisture rises from the warm water. If the same conditions continue to exist, a hurricane can form. This means that the longer this cycle continues, the lower the air pressure will become, the higher the winds will be, and the stronger the hurricane will become. 2005 New Orleans, LA Hurricane Katrina was 27.11/918 millibars; 1992 Homestead, FL Hurricane Andrew was 27.23/922 millibars; and 2012 East Coast Superstorm Sandy was 27.76/940 millibars.

Winds in a hurricane, tropical storm, cyclone, any cyclonic storm in the northern hemisphere blow in a counterclockwise direction around the eye, the center of the storm. South of the equator they blow clockwise, all this due to the Coriolis Effect.

The four Quadrants of a Hurricane – Northwest – this would most likely be the third most powerful quadrant – weaker than both quadrants on the storm’s right side; Northeast – Hurricane Hunters would expect to find the strongest winds and heaviest rainfall here. This quadrant may also spawn tornadoes; Southwest – this is most likely the weakest quadrant. Quadrants on the left side of the storm’s path generally produce the least rainfall; Southeast – this would likely be the second most powerful quadrant, producing strong winds and heavy rainfall.

My Mom has lived in Florida from 1968 to 1997 and 2005 until present. She has been blessed in that she has never had to evacuate her home or sustained any major damage to her home from a hurricane. Our current house was being built when Hurricane Charley went through Punta Gorda (15 miles south of us) on Friday the 13th in August 2004 and received no structural or water damage. Mom’s house was built to Hurricane Andrew (category 5) and Charley (category 4) standards – windows, roof, garage door, hurricane shutters, etc.

North Port has a pet friendly Shelter Mom can take us to in the event she has to evacuate her home. Of course, how she’d manage all of us is another story….

See some pictures in my gallery of the hurricanes mentioned in this blog. A few websites you could check out are:, & hurricanequadrants,0,2447301.flash

Day 17 – Yum’s Yikes ‘n Yarns,
Babette & the White Paws, thanks for my COTM vote and your support. Where does the time go? Never enough hours in a day!

Everyone hop aboard my magic carpet – we are headed 36 miles north of my hometown to…..


This Florida attraction has roots that run deep. Sarasota Jungle Gardens (SJG), once described as an “impenetrable swamp”, consisting of muddy, swamp soil was considered by many to be infertile. The exact opposite, however, is true. Because the soil was once covered by fresh water & hundreds of years of decaying plants, it is actually very rich, & full of nutrients & minerals. The vegetation at SJG, once the only attraction here, still enthralls visitors from the world over. The Ponderosa Lemon with its football size fruit is a favorite, as well as the Carambola of Malaya, Bunya Bunya from Australia, Lychee of China & Norfolk Pine, to name a few. A stroll along deeply shaded, winding brick paths takes visitors across a number of rustic bridges that stem bubbling streams flowing into the many lagoons that dot the property.

SJG has a large number of American Flamingos & is one of the few zoos in the United States that allows their flock of flamingos to roam freely. This sounds to be most appetizing…oh I mean most interesting, of course! Did you know that flamingos derive their pink color from their diet of shrimp & other crustaceans?

Many of the exotic birds that call SJG “home” have come here via pet owners who can no longer care for their birds. And, many of these birds have out-lived their owners as the average life span of a Macaw in captivity can range from 40 to 100 years. Our Birds of Prey are Fine Feathered Friends…all of the Gardens’ Birds of Prey have been injured at one point in their lives & cannot be returned to the wild….“Who” the Barred Owl, Cheyenne, a Red Shouldered Hawk, Squint, the one-eyed Screech Owl, & Mortis, an injured Florida Black Vulture.

Alligators, Crocodiles & Snakes...SJG presents 2 exciting, educational reptile shows daily. Plus a gopher tortoise & a pair of Aldabra tortoises named Roscoe & Bertha, two bearded dragons, a skink, a creamsicle snake & other slithering critters you won’t want to miss.

Prairie Dogs at SJG …they’re cute, they’re cuddly, and their burrowing ways are rather destructive too. A friendly critter by the name of “Putter” joined our family after being relocated from Sarasota’s municipal golf course. His antics weren’t helping lower anyone’s handicap!

Beauty Flutters in the Butterfly Garden…is a combination of flowering vines, self-seeding flowers, perennial shrubs, palms, cycads & ferns -- all of which have been hand-selected to attract a variety of butterflies including Monarch, Sulfur & Swallowtail.

Some pictures are in my gallery…..

Day 16 – Yum’s Yikes ‘n Yarns,
Babette & the White Paws, thank you so much for my COTM vote today. Is your Mom traveling as much as before or at home more writing grants?

I’m hopping on my magic carpet this morning with Mimi, 10-month old kittens JC, Wind Song, Cloud Shadow; and 3-month old kittens, Gray Stone & Black Stone. We’re all heading 92 miles north to Tampa and an exciting place. When you hear the word Aquarium…what do you think? I think glass-sided tank or bowl and lunch! Well, wait ‘til you visit the…


The Florida Aquarium gives families a glimpse into the mysteries & magic of the undersea world. Marine exhibits spotlight the creatures that live in the bay or deeper underwater, even allowing kittens to touch rays & sharks at the new Stingray Beach or lock eyes with sea turtles.

Plan to take a Dolphin Cruise where we can experience the amazing, graceful & beautiful wild dolphins that call Tampa Bay home. Tampa Bay is home to more than 500 bottlenose dolphins & is one one of the best places to view endangered manatees & numerous species of birds, many of which are threatened or endangered. All of this wildlife thrives in one of the busiest deepwater ports in the Southern United States.

We can also visit Explore a Shore, the 2-acre outdoor water adventure zone that lets J.C., Wind Song, & Cloud Shadow cool off while pawents relax under the shade of the Cantina bar and grill; and Shipwreck Shore gives Gray Stone & Black Stone their own place to climb on animal figures and pirate ship replica.

Then there’s the Florida Wetlands Trail exhibit where we can take a journey through the nostalgic state park trail past the alligator-infested Suwannee River using old wooden signs to guide us. Venture further to the river streams where playful otters explore and Great Blue Herons and Roseate Spoonbills wade in the vegetation. Continue our adventure amongst native fish, owls and free flying birds when suddenly we come face-to-face with Florida’s invasive species…the Burmese Pythons.

Additionally, view the one-of-a-kind Coral Reef Gallery displaying one of the most beautiful & diverse ecosystems in the world. The coral reef exhibit is modeled after the coral formations of the Dry Tortugas off the Florida Keys.

Pounce on over to the newest attraction, Penguin Point! Watch African Black-footed penguins dive, swim and play in their new South African beach themed home; as well as, visit with the guests.

See pictures in my gallery….

Day 15 – Yum’s Yikes ‘n Yarns,
Babette, Pepe & the White Paws, thank you for my COTM vote today. My Mom had a few doctor appointments today and is running really far behind. We are pouncing by to be sure we give you a vote today! I sang to both of you - hope I didn't ruin your birthday for you...teehee

This will FINALLY be our last day here at the Springs. As ya’ll probably noticed, my Mom is a bit long-winded…blah, blah, blah…(I’m here to tell you she’s a bit long in the tooth too, but don’t tell her I said that)! I will be boarding my magic carpet tomorrow for the second half of the month and heading out to some attractions I hope will be of interest to you all!


In the 1960s, girls came from as far away as Tokyo to try out for the privilege of becoming a mermaid. The glamorous mermaids performed eight shows a day to sold out crowds -- as many as half a million people a year came to see the Weeki Wachee mermaids.

Weeki Wachee Springs employed 35 mermaids, who took turns swimming in the shows and captivating the crowds by playing football and having picnics underwater. The mermaids wore one-piece suits & were treated like royalty wherever they went in Florida.

The City of Weeki Wachee incorporated in 1966, putting the tiny city of Weeki Wachee on maps & state road signs. According to the U. S. Census Bureau’s 2004 estimates, the city has a population of 12. The city has a total area of 1.0 square mile.

In 1982, Buccaneer Bay opened with water slides & a white sand beach. In 1997, the popular Former Mermaid shows began, bringing former mermaids back to Weeki Wachee Springs to swim in the Mermaids of Yesteryear shows, which play to standing room only crowds.

There is so much to do & see we’ll just focus on some favorites. We can watch a mermaid show; swim at Buccaneer Bay & go on the Flume Ride; attend the Misunderstood Creatures Animal Show; take a riverboat ride down the Weeki Wachee River or take a journey on a single, double or triple tube around Buccaneer Bay; or sign up for “Sirens of the Deep Mermaid Camp” – we will experience what it’s like to be an underwater performer & even be fitted with a mermaid tail for posing. If the kittens have worn us out, we can take them to Lil Mates Caribbean Cove, a water play area reserved for them where we can relax while they are being supervised by lifeguards.

In 2008, Weeki Wachee Springs proudly became one of Florda's newest state parks! They are very proud to be a part of such a great tradition that the Florida State Park system offers.

Weeki Wachee Springs -- The City of Live Mermaids -- is more than just mermaids; it’s a truly original piece of Florida’s rich heritage.
