Coat: short haired

Education: She acted as "pet therapist" when my husband had a heart attack by giving him extra TLC and has nursed him through many illnesses and injuries.

My favorite tricks and treats are: She trains her staff, which consists of my husband and me. and Salmon-flavored fur-ball goo.

Where I hang out: Padded "executive perch" (window perch)in my home office window.

My favorite grubs: Science Diet food but my Salmon-flavored fur ball medicine is candy, so that's her favorite.

What I love about my owners: My owners are both home all day. Also, they let me sleep between them, on them, or anywhere I want on their bed.

Pet motto: Irish Blessing for Kitties: Cats--They are creatures of great worth. They keep company with the angels and bring a little bit of heaven to the earth.

How We Met

We adopted Ginger Spicegirl from the local Humane Society. She put herself right up to the front of the cage and almost screamed,"Pick me." so we did! Also, she is stunning looking because her markings are so wild and crazy.

♥ WEDNESDAY 9/02; Mom & dad drained the hot water heater to do a sediment flush. It's the first time they did that in the 18 years of owning our home!!!! The tank filled quicker than dad thought so of course it over-flowed some making a nice water mess on the floor getting things wet. They got it cleaned up then dad ended up having to disconnect the hose from the shut-off under the kitchen sink as it was plugged from sediments. Now we have lots of water pressure!!!!

♥ WEDNESDAY 9/02; Late afternoon, Mom walked out in the back room for about 3 minutes then came back in and within that short of time she seen that PATCH BOY had hold of JAZPYR #10428 while I was growling and hissing at PATCH BOY and doggie WILBUR DC#260132 right there in our faces. Mom yelled at us, but no response so she finally got to us and yelled again which PATCH BOY backed off and WILBUR did, too!!!! Mom grabbed JAZPYR to put him on the cat tree, but I was still growling and hissing at PATCH BOY so mom slowly grabbed him to get him away from me. Poor JAZPYR as he was the innocent one & always so gentle!!!! He ended up losing some fur and dad checked him over while mom tended to us. Mom calmed me down some and I never got in trouble neither. She thinks I was just trying to protect JAZPYR cuz we're pretty close buds!!!! Mom decided to give PATCH BOY one half pill of my Fluoxetine to calm him down then a bit later gave me another dose of it as well since I was still so upset.

♥ THURSDAY 9/03; It was a calm day for us and PATCH BOY slept a lot, too!!!! Mom and dad were happy to have a peaceful day!!!!

♥ FRIDAY 9/04; I refused to eat my wet food this morning plus I didn't want to eat anything til late this morning. Mom knows I'm not having a good day and having her spend xtra time with me.

Hi Ginger Spicegirl and Mom
Our house is quiet and sad today as we mourn the loss of our dear friend Mom Janada. I guess a part of our hearts die when we lose such a special friend. It does help to be able to share our grief with the CC Community. Reading all the beautiful tributes to honor Janada’s memory makes us fully realize how very lucky we all were to have known such a kind and beautiful lady. Janada was already a sweet angel on earth... now she’s back home in Heaven.

We left a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

A poem dedicated to Mom Janada...

“A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam.
For a brief moment its glory and beauty belong to our world.
But then it flies on again, and though we wish it could have stayed, we feel so lucky just to have seen it.”

Hi sweet Gin Gin, It's me, Talley,
We’ll get back to our exciting historic train ride, in just a moment, but dad and I just saw something that we just had to share with all of you;
Calgary Humane Society has launched an innovative new ad campaign in which it hawks “pre-owned” cats in the same razzle-dazzle in-your-face style of late-night used car commercials. Every detail, including the salesman in a bad suit, wide tie and porn-star moustache, is spot on.
Shelters are learning the value of good social media and youtube mojo in saving the lives of shelter cats. At Calgary Humane, 80% of its animals are adopted within 14 days. They offer a Patient Paw program, in which cats and rabbits who have been at the shelter for a longer-than-average time can be adopted for free (dogs in the program are available for a $50 donation). And, the shelter takes professional quality photos of its adoptable pets for the website, a practice that’s proven to increase visits to the shelter and adoption rates.
If your pawrents volunteer with a shelter that lags behind in adoption promotion practices, tell them to speak up! There’s a lot that can be done on social media that does not require extensive resources, but provides significant upticks in adoption rates.


Now our Trip into History continues:

Talley and Whiskers awakened in their sleeping compartment on the train. The sound of happy voices reached them from the dining car. They bathed, dressed and joined the happy kitties for breakfast.
Talley tapped her water glass for attention and announced, “After breakfast, Carriages will be waiting for us and we’ll travel the ten miles of the Colonial Historic Parkway to Jamestown,
I’ll read to you from the brochure, “Re-creations of three ships that brought America’s first permanent English colonists to Virginia in 1607 are moored at Jamestown Settlement’s pier for visitors to board and explore.

Visitors can learn about the four-and-a-half-month voyage from England and take part in periodic demonstrations of 17th-century piloting and navigation. Visit the ‘tween deck of the Susan Constant to learn about shipboard life and the tight conditions during the journey to Virginia. Try steering with a whipstaff or tiller, tie sailors’ knots, climb into a sailor’s bunk.”

The Jamestown Settlement re-creations have been designated “the official fleet of the Commonwealth” by the Virginia General Assembly.
Costumed historical interpreters assist visitors in exploring the ships and learning about the 1607 voyage and 17th-century shipboard activities.
I think we’ll have lots of fun, and learn the important role that kitties played aboard the ships, protecting the supplies and passengers from rats.
“Enjoy your breakfast and get ready for more adventure!”

Thank you, Gin Gin
Mojo Blackbear snuggles into her friend's fur, trying to be a big girl but Gin Gin tells her it's not kittenish to cry when you lose someone who meant a lot to you. She sees that Gin Gin has a few tears too, so it must be true.

Mike holds Lady Dolly's paw and shares with everyone a thought that Mom ran across recently:

"An Indian legend says: When a human dies there is a bridge they must cross to enter into Heaven. At the head of the bridge waits every animal that human encountered during their lifetime. The animals, based on what they know of this person, decide which humans may cross the bridge .... and which are turned away."

Mike says that if there is any truth to this legend, Mom Janada received a royal welcome yesterday and crossed that bridge surrounded by purring and tail-wagging friends. But we here on earth will miss her so much!

Mom is still working on the cleanup, yesterday she took Big Bro Joe's old taekwondo gear that's been sitting in a barrel in the basement for the past 15 years (!!) to the school he trained at. She took a box of books to the thrift store. Today since it's not raining she'll probably take some chunks of wood, old tires, a kitty-shredded mattress & other big garbage down to the recycling place.

Before she got too sick to talk on the phone, Mom Janada was a really big cheerleader for Mom in picking up her life where it got put on "hold" because of Dad's health issues. She was sort of doing the same down there in Arizona, concentrating on taking care of herself after having spent so much time driving Dolly's Dad around for treatments & doctors appointments because of his bad leg. Mom can still feel her support. -- Mike

Hi sweet Gin Gin, It's me, Talley,
All Aboard!
Today we will be taking a ride on a train. Our passenger cars are beautifully restored turn of the century luxury cars and we will be dining in style in a fully equipped dining car. Our train will pulled by a 1905 Baldwin Steam locomotive. I have invited all of the residents of the new shelter to join us and I would appreciate any efforts on your part to make them feel comfortable on our trip. I think they might be a little nervous about going on a train, but I know that with your encouragement and friendship we can show them how to relax and enjoy the trip.
Where will be going you ask, (Our perhaps you didn’t, but I’ll tell you anyway.) We’ll be traveling to Colonial Williamsburg, for sightseeing and shopping. We’ll learn about the early days of our country and how the colonists created our nation. Some of our ancestors came over with the very first colonists and they protected the scarce supplies of stored food from the marauding mice and rats. You might even say that we kitties were responsible for the survival of the colonists.
We’ll be visiting a colonial schoolhouse where docents in period costume will show us how the students learned what they needed to know to thrive and prosper in revolutionary America. Then on to the homes of notable founding fathers where we’ll meet Dolly Madison, the seamstress who created our first Stars and Stripes. Following our visits to these houses we’ll visit the crafts shops see how the blacksmiths, cabinet makers, weavers and carpenters made all of the goods that were essential in day to day life, in early America.
Getting hungry? We have reservations at Christana Campbell’s Tavern an accurate recreation of an upscale dining establishment from colonial days. I’ve taken the liberty of ordering for us to save time. Hope you like seafood. Here’s our menu;
The Waterman’s Lunch
A three-course meal starting with a cup of the Eastern Shore Clam Chowder
followed by a dish of gridiron-cooked Salmon, with a Shrimp and Scallop Brochette
adorning a bed of Rice Pilaf with a Lemon Dill Cream, ending with your choice of fresh baked fruit pie. (Apple, Blueberry, Peach or Strawberry)
Following our adventures in Colonial Williamsburg, we’ll return to our waiting train in horse drawn carriages and have dinner in style in the dining car.
The adventure will take place on the Cat’s Meow Resort Page (271826) at any time, (no live blogging.)
I hope you’ll join us for this fun filled outing!
Purrs and friendly headbumps,
Your Servant,
Queen Talley

I have to admit I have it pretty darn cushy, but then again we all do!!MOL!!
Thank-you for the special bag of treats and a Pink Feather Wand toy, I just love to play with mom and that is just purrfect!!

It's pawsome to be back as the family blogger!
It seems like it takes furever for my turn to come around anymore. I blame mom for it too because it was her idea to keep Piggy & Sneakers inside with us. It's not that I don't like them because I really do but more kitties = less blogging time for the most fun kitty of the bunch (me)...MOL!
To top it off mom was also gone most of the day yesterday so I didn't get to start on the first day of the month! When she got home I made sure to look in all of the shopping bags to make sure she'd gotten more wet food for us. She did so I guess she's forgiven...although I heard her tell dad that gp really enjoyed getting the mice cream cake for his birthday. Hey...wait...that means that someone besides me got mice cream! Totally unfair!! I think it's time to sit mom down & explain that mice cream = a happy calico kitty...MOL!

It was a typical start to our day today with 5 of us racing through the house with the lone observer (Patches) looking at us like we're crazy. Teehee...I don't know about you but I LOVE acting wild & crazy...MOL! I am on the look-out for my chance to get even with Piggy later today because she pounced on me earlier when I was running around. I'm not like most of my fursisters though because I wait for the purrfect opportunity when my prey's defenses are at their lowest. I call it Cyclonic payback & boy, is it sweet...MOL!

It's another really hot day outside! It's been very hot all week so we haven't been able to listen to the birds because the A/C is running. We have been finding some spiders & crickets to chase around though so we're making do with that 'critter' entertainment until it cools off.

Well I don't want to meow your ears off on my first day as the family blogger so will leave you a blueberry popsicle (It's National Blueberry Popsicle day) & zip out of here for now. I'll be back again in a couple of days (hopefully with my tongue frozen from mice cream...MOL) so will see you again soon.

Hi pretty GinGin!
Well, this IS a surprise! Mom has had a lot of "surprise" COTD winners lately. In fact, almost all of them this year. So, now it's our turn! Yippee! I hope everyone brought their swim suits because we're having one last fling with the slip-n-slid before we roll it up for the season. Then a nice outdoor potluck and maybe campfire songs later. There's still some moon out at night, so don't be scared. Besides, we have the campfire to scare away the vampires.

What? Wait a minute. *psst psss ffft pssst* Oh. *frown* My brother just told me campfires do NOT keep the vampires away. So, well, then. I guess we'll have to invite some werewolves. Maybe that'll do it! But no matter what, have a great time and don't forget to take a goody bag before you head home. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Gin Gin
Well, this philosophical guy says that bad things eventually have to happen to all of us, but the good people like Mom Janada are blessed because all the love & caring they've sent out over the years comes right back at them. She has a lot of great friends who are helping take care of her, and the last update I saw from her daughter Michelle says that while she's incoherent most of the time, she's not in such awful pain anymore either.

I'm glad you got to give Dolly a hug too, and that she was able to be part of the Sanctuary opening. I know if her Mom had been able to get her there, she would have.

Yep, Mom is still sorting & tossing, though she's coming to the end of that job. We have a big ratty chest of drawers downstairs with tools & home repair equipment in it, as part of the basement cleanup they were doing Mom has been planning to move all that stuff to a more sturdy chest of drawers that's down there, sort it out and toss out some of the stuff like dried-out tubes of caulking, etc. We're almost down to that being the only basement job left, so she's running out of excuses, mol.

We thought Mom had lost her mind last night. She looked out the window right around suppertime, it was raining really hard and a whole lane of the road in front of our house was flooded! So Mom put on her big orange reflective raincoat from when she was a traffic flagger, grabbed the snow shovel she keeps in the basement (because when you DO have to shovel snow, you can't always get into the shed!) and went out & found the storm drain and cleared a whole bunch of leaves away from it that the big windstorm had blown down. I mean, it WAS nice to have lakefront property for a while, mol, but the water was getting so deep it was about to start covering the sidewalk.

She came back inside & made some hot chocolate to warm up with. She says that after a long, hot, dry summer it's starting to feel like fall! -- Mike

Hello, Gin Gin!
What a nice surprise! Yes, AQ Duchess used to tell us about you and your dear Mom. She said you were a very sweet kitty and the two of you were very good furiends.

So, you want to know how I got my name? Well, my other Mommy used to call me Hitler, cuz of the way I treated the other kitties in the family. I was the boss...MOL! But when Mom adopted me, she just couldn't see a sweet, precious and beautiful girl like me having such a nasty name. So, she tried to think of a name that would sound something like the one I had, so I wouldn't be confused. So, Mischief was what she chose and she called me that for quite awhile till I got used to it, then she started using nicknames on me...MOL! The one she uses most is Mishy. I come to that, too! I have actually become a mischievous kitty, so it now fits me very well and it doesn't sound so awful...MOL! So, that's how I got my name.

You are a very beautiful kitty, too! I really love your markings and they are very unique. Mom has always loved calico kitties, but now all she has are orange, orange and white and black and white. And the outside kitty, Frosty is a dilute torti.

Well, furiend, I hope you have a wonderful and blessed evening and pleasant dreams. Take care and I'll see ya, later. Love ya! Oh, AQ Duchess will be by later tonight, probably after you are in bed for the night, to sprinkle you with angel dust. She told me she was your guardian angel. I think the others watch over the rest of us...MOL! You are special to her.

Lots of hugs and headbonks,
Mischief

Hi Gin Gin!!
Thank you so much for the congratulations and the pretty balloon and roses. Mom remembers the day 20 years ago that she got me like it was yesterday...she just went to "look" at the cats at the Humane Society and never really planned to bring home a cat. But I picked her and told her she HAD to take me home!
Hugs,

Wow...were got to go outside today when mom got home from work. It is very hot out and we stayed in the shade. It is in the mid 80's with very high humidity. We WERE supposed to get some bad storms, but they moved over us, so we never got hit, all we got was thunder and it got dark out, but no rain.

Mom rode her bike today for the 1st time in 1 month. It was 1 month ago today that mom fell and hurt herself and spent 4 days at the Hospital and mom still has bumps and bruises on her head and her knee and she still can't hear from her left ear and it 'rings' all the time.

She rode up to the bank to cash her paycheck and deposit some of the money in her account and then stopped at Kroger for food. Mom said seeing as how she couldn't BBQ most of the Summer cause of being sick, she is taking every opportunity to BBQ now while the weather is still warm enough to do so...and of course she shared her steak with me and Jesse.

Mom is off tomorrow so we get to go outside earlier. But at 3:30 mom has to leave cause she has an appt for her MRI tomorrow and she hopes everything is cleared up now.

Mom watered her flowers tonight after we ate dinner and we all ran up the stairs and sat on the porch to watch and when she was through Jesse went down and drank from the puddle while Winston sat and watched the squirrel eat some crackers mom threw for him to enjoy!

I want to thank you for the condolences for my sweet Angel Snickie. I miss him very much, but we will always be together and he is coming back to play MHL for KCK!

Purrs & Pawhuggz!!

Hi sweet Gin Gin
Of course I'll hold your paw! I was kind of thrown by Snickie's diagnosis and passing too, why I didn't know that FIP could still suddenly decide to flare up & get you when you're HIS age. I always thought that once you got past about, oh, TWO you could consider yourself safe from it. FIP is such a nasty disease!

Oh, was it ever a bad storm! We got off really easy, Big Bro Will said there were trees down ALL along his way home, and he had to take detours on the detours on the detours to get here! It was a bad storm for trees because it was such a dry summer and a lot of the trees really dried out & that made them sitting ducks.

We have 5 big Douglas Firs in the back yard, Mom worries about them in a storm but they are close together & the roots must be all tangled up so if anything fell it should only be branches or the very top part. Mom & Dad thought about getting them topped once, but the tree guy says you don't really want to do that because then they grow TWO new tops where there used to just be one, and that's much more likely to break off. There's some very good underground water around here and the trees are healthy. TOO healthy, that's why we had to cut down the willow in the front yard, it took up the whole front yard & it was only 12 years old!

It's raining today & the wind is picking up again. I think it might have actually decided to be fall around here. -- Mike

Hi sweet Gin Gin, It's me, Talley,
COTM DAY 31
I hope that the ideas and suggestions that I’ve presented during the month have proven helpful. I want to especially thank those of you who took the time to send me ideas that I could share with our friends.
This has been a remarkable month for me and my family.
You’ve sent me so many votes, so many kind words and wishes, so much love. When I was little more than a kitten, (it was back in the day of the shout out COTD catpaigns.) I was nominated for COTD, and as I sat with dad that evening he read me the notes that kitties had sent along with their votes. I kind of got a vision of what was happening and Pete asked me what I was thinking.
This is what I told him; “I just had a vision of what is happening tonight, Pete. Kitties and their families from all over the world are reading about me and sending me votes. What is a vote? Well, it’s easy to think that it’s just a click on a computer, but I think it’s much more. In my mind’s eye I see the world as though I’m looking at it from space. The whole world is a beautiful orb, with no lines marking off the different countries. I see the votes as little yellow scrolls tied with a bit golden ribbon. They seem to be floating up toward me from individual homes. As they rise they join others rising from neighborhoods and the streams of votes from neighborhoods combine to for large streams from cities, and then from states, they flow together to form rivers of sparkling yellow and gold. They make a river of love and caring. Each one is a message of friendship.
The big rivers combine and form rushing torrents of love and goodwill. As the world rotates beneath me I can see that the votes are rising from all over the globe and that powerful rush of love and good will circles the globe and then it all comes rushing down onto our house.
I feel so loved! CC is a very special place and a vote is so much more than just a click.”
All of these years later, I still think your votes are much more than clicks!
My life truly has been blessed. I was rescued by my dad when I was a tiny sick kitten, and I have been loved and nurtured every day of my life. My brother and sisters love me and treat me with kindness and respect. I’ve made many friends here on CC and I met the most wonderful cat in the whole world, my wonderful husband K Whiskers.
I hope with all of my heart that some of the ideas that I’ve presented, can help other kitties to find the kind of life that I have been blessed with. Thank you all so very much!
See you tomorrow evening for a Coronation Celebration.

HOLY
( by K MacVitie)
The peace and joy you give me, no words can ever tell,
The lessons that you teach me, in my heart will always dwell,
Your purrs bring forth divinity, to comfort, heal and bless,
Wondrous being, praise to you for your gracious loveliness.

Love,
Talley

♥ We are sorry we didn't get to be on to visit our friends Saturday, but dad opened one of those Pandora Boxes when he went to change an "O" ring in the kitchen faucet. First he went to Home Depot to buy a new one, but they didn't have any so he went to Lowe's which they had one. Once he got it on and back together, it still leaked bad so mom and dad ended up going back to Lowe's and bought a new faucet. It was after 9:00pm last night when he finally got done.

♥ Last night mom heard a cat fight which mom had a feeling who it was and sure enough it was Mysteanah-Gre' and Sonnjae in a nasty fight!!!! Mysteanah is the one who usually starts it. Mom never got to see Sonnjae after that last night nor has she seen him yet today, but mom's hoping to see him later so mom can try to check him over. Mysteanah seemed to be okay!!!!

♥ Mom had to get dad up at 5:00am this morning as he went Salmon fishing with his nephew David toward the coast of Florence. Then a bit later mom went to Wal*Mart this morning to pick up a few things.

♥ Mom added two new pictures of our front yard down at the bottom of my page.

Hi sweet Gin Gin, It's me, Talley,
COTM DAY 29
Today we take a break in the catpaign, to make an announcement,
Queens Maggie and Angel Ginger have agreed that the Coronation shall take place on Tuesday September 1st beginning at 7:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time. The ceremony will take place on the Cat’s Meow Resort, (271826). Following the ceremony there will be a reception for all kitties. There will be a delicious menu, Music and Dancing until the wee hours (or until everyone is tired and goes to sleep)
I have to say, It has been an honor and a pleasure to Catpaign this month, and I am so overwhelmed with your support and kindness. I will try to be a good Queen and serve you well.
And now a poem:

Cat-Proofing
Like God keeps His eye upon the sparrow,
I keep my eye upon the cat,
For unlike the little sparrow,
I’m not sure just where she’s at.
She knows the couch is out of bounds,
Yet invariably she goes there,
She ignores the yellow warning tape,
I’ve wound around it, in despair.
I know she likes electric cords,
She pulls them from the wall,
I’ve told her fifty million times,
THAT’S NOT ALLOWED AT ALL!
The wires are rewired now,
To shriek like fire sirens,
If she so much as puts a paw
Anywhere near their environs.
She treats the kitchen counter,
As a fun place on which to glide,
Though it’s purposely lubricated
To make her slip and slide.
When I booby-trapped the cupboards,
I thought, “A-ha! I’ve stopped her now!”
But fearlessly she enters,
And does not blow up, somehow.
Some cat owners keep baskets
Of balls of yarn upon the floor,
My basket’s filled with hand grenades,
Which she bats around ’til she gets bored.
Alternate pencils on my desktop,
On impact will explode,
She always kicks the safe ones off,
How ever does she know?
There’s nothing wrong with cat food,
It’s made special, just for cats,
But she wants steak and baked potato,
GET DOWN! GET OFF MY TABLEMAT!
Just once I’d like to wear a dress,
Not accessorized with cat hair,
But plastic bags do not protect,
How does she get inside there?
I firmly speak; my voice is loud,
Sometimes I fairly SHOUT!
But, somehow her cat meows,
Are loud enough to drown me out.
I tell her time and time again,
CUT OUT THAT LOOKING CUTE!
It would help so much when I yell at her,
If she looked more like a brute.
Her attention span is not too long,
Just long enough to drive me wild,
I’m convinced she had some lessons,
From a clever, spoiled child.
I doubt God’s little sparrows,
Give Him trouble quite like mine,
But He can’t hold them in His lap,
Or hug them any time.
Oh, I suppose it is a tradeoff,
And I do get some relief,
Like when she’s curled up on the couch
Behind the yellow tape, asleep.
I think to master cat control,
Is a fine, accomplished art,
I’ve learned I can cat-proof my house,
But I can’t cat-proof my heart.
I love you all,
Talley

♥ Listen up!!!! You remember that orange Tabby Tomcat that's been hanging around in our back yard???? Well, he's still here and has gained a little weight so he's not so gauntly looking. But guess what???? He finally let mom pet him about a week ago and still lets mom pet him some!!!! Mom was thrilled to achieve that. Mom also gave him a name and is getting him used to hearing it. Mom thought of a few names to fit him and has decided to call him ..... Sonnjae (pronounced Son Jay).
Mom also took lots of pictures of him and added seven (7) into my gallery.

♥ Mom called (Jazpyr's #10428 littermate sister) TOEBEE'S Momma Judy on Thursday afternoon to see how TOEBEE is. She is doing ok and continues to eat and drink water. Momma Judy did find another lump which makes two now.

♥ SAUSHA #22506 has calmed down enough as not to be so scared when mom goes in their room. She comes to mom again as she had in the past before her sickness. She loves the laser light and chases it all around in their room. Dad and mom are impressed by her fastness at it and so cute!!!!

♥ I am feeling lots better, too, and taking my Simplicef antibiotics for mom with no issues. Mom says I'm usually a good boy when taking my meds.

♥ UPDATE ON WHYSKRS #10378
Whyskrs continues to be on his diet even thru all of us that has been sick. Mom has not stopped him on that.
Since April 2, 2015 at his official weight of 25.2 lbs. he now weighed in at 22.3 lbs. on August 17, 2015.

Hi Gin Gin
Well, our day was kinda boring. Mom had to work til 1pm, then came home to change her clothes and then had to leave again for her Dr Appt...she had an MRA today! She said she felt like Anthony Hopkins {whoever he is} in the movie, "Silence of the Lambs" when they put the cage over her face...say what?? They put moms face in a cage....I bet she was upset!

We finally got to go outside when mom came home at 4pm...it was a very pleasant day and we got to 75* and it was sunny and just a little breezy, but they said T storms are coming in for the weekend.

Mom felt a little funny last night...she washed her hair and she bend over the tub and cause her left ear is plugged up, she felt weird..not lightheaded or anything and she didn't black out, only felt a little funny...today's test will reveal how they can drain that blood from behind moms left ear!

Mom finally got her new-to-her computer desk all set up with all the stuff that was on her old one..this one has plenty of room and mom has more room for anything else she might buy in the future...she polished it up and now it shines...she even got some Red Oak stain to cover up the scratches on it..she added a door where the tower is cause Jesse has a terrible habit of spraying sometimes, even though he is neutered and mom doesn't want him spraying the tower....can't say I blame her!

Nope, none of us fights over the top seats on the tree...I am usually the only one that goes up that far...Winston lays on the shelf under it, but I get way to the top! I like it up there and I can look down at the others...that is one fun tree!

Yes..mom found it on eBay...they had the same tree on Amazon but wanted $27.99 for shipping and eBay wanted zip, zero, zilch..FREE shipping..so mom got it from them instead! She is happy she shopped around for the best bargain!

Well, i hope you have a pawsome evening!

Hi sweet Gin Gin, It's me, Talley,
COTM DAY 28
We have a short blog and a long poem today.
I wanted to mention another way to help shelters. It’s something that dad has been doing for quite a while, and we almost forgot to mention it to you. It’s easy, doesn’t cost anything and provides funding for almost any charity that you can think of.
Most of us order things from Amazon, and they have a program called Amazon Smile. You sign up, and then whenever you make a purchase a, small donation is made to the charity you selected.
The small amounts add up, our local “No More Homeless Pets’ told us that they receive almost two hundred dollars a month.
Just a thought, and now our poem....
WHY OWN A CAT
There's a danger you know.
You can't own just one, for the craving will grow.
There's no doubt they're addictive, wherein lies the danger
While living with lots, you'll grow poorer and stranger
One cat is not trouble, and two are so funny,
The third one is easy, the fourth one's a honey
The fifth is delightful, the sixth ones's a breeze.
You find you can live with a houseful, with ease.
So how 'bout another? Would you really dare?
They're really quite easy, but Oh Lord, the hair!
With cats on the sofa and cats on the bed,
And crates in the kitchen, its no bother, you said.
They're really no trouble, their manners are great.
What's just one more cat and one more little crate?
The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty.
The floor is all footprints, the furniture's dusty.
The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care?
Who minds a few noseprints and a little more hair?
So let's keep a kitten, you can always find room.
And a little more time for the dust cloth and broom.
There's hardly a limit to the cats you can add
the thought of a cutback, sure makes you feel sad.
Each one is special, so useful, so funny,
The food bill grows larger, you owe the vet money.
Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay,
Except other cat folks, who live the same way.
Your lawn has now died and your shrubs are dead, too.
Your weekends are busy, you're off with your crew.
There's cat food and vitamins, grooming and shots
And entries and travel and motels, which cost lots.
Is it worth it you wonder? Are you caught in a trap?
Then that favorite comes up and climbs in your lap.
His look says you're special and you know that you will
Keep all of the kittens in spite of the bill.

Late evening is awful, you scream and you shout
At the cats on the sofa, who refuse to get up.
The cats and the cat shows, the travel, the thrills
The work and the worry, the pressure, the bills.
The Whole thing seems worth it, the cats are your life.
They're charming and funny and offset the strife.
Your lifestyle has changed, things just won't be the same.
Yes, those cats are addictive and so's the cat game!

Thank you, sweet Gin Gin
for helping me celebrate my Adoptiversary and for the soft blue blankie and framed photo of Dolly & I and Molly Rose surfing on Pinto Island with "Love Forever" etched into the bottom of the frame. The days just got cooler as of today, so I'll be using the blanket tonight.

I can't believe it was eight years ago today I found my forever family and spent that very first night snuggled up with Mom & Dad. That day also made it possible to find this awesome CC family and my forever love Lady Dolly too. What a lucky tom I am!

My thoughts are definitely with my sweetheart's Mom today, this is the first special day since my campaign that Dolly's happy little face hasn't been here to celebrate with me. But I know that she's here in spirit, and her Mom can feel all the loving thoughts and prayers coming her way from all of us. -- Mike

Question & OFFER
Are you a fan of the Furlip Files?
We are holding auditions for copyright-free photos of the characters. We have a temporary Sgt. Amber Callie-Co. But your color pattern and especially that mice leg pose led me to forward your profile to BeeGee our photo manager. She likes your look too. And so, we want to make you an offer to be in the play.
So far, my furineds Angel mallow (Effie), Sniff (playing himself, Pig playing Captain Pinky Puss, and me as Furlip mewlow are in the play. It looks like the beautiful all white Evie will play Vrs. Captain P. Puss, and mimi's young black brother, J.C. will play a clever cat burglar.
Anyway, if you would like to purrticipate in the Furlip Files and achieve immortality on the Internet please discuss this offer with your human (photogragher) and let me know.
Thanks,
and Purrs,

Hi Gin Gin!!
Oh you are NEVER too late dear Gin Gin! We are still pawtying and have some BBQ salmon and cole slaw and a big piece of cake! That's so pawsome that your mom was hiking and having some human kind of fun!

Thanks so much for pouncing over with the delightful Happy Birthday wishes! You are so sweet to bring me the pink feather wand and the pink blankie! Our nights *ARE* getting cooler, that's fur sure!

It’s hard for mom to believe I just turned six years old- - she still thinks of me as a kitten - - the years have certainly flown by and we have seen many changes come, too. I am so thankful for my furriends on CC and that our community is still together!

Let’s take a moment in quiet reflection for our dear furriends and their pawrents, hurting, ill or in need, and say a little blessing, then enjoy some BBQ and a big piece of cake!

Have a super evening! Big hugs from the ❀LILY PAD❀

Hi sweet Gin Gin, It's me, Talley,
COTM DAY 27
Today we’re going to discuss a very serious subject; Lost Kitties and how to find to find them. I hope you never need this information!
Top 10 Tips For Finding Lost Cats
1) Not all missing cats are lost. Cats are notorious for hiding in impossible places. Before you assume kitty is missing, make a thorough search indoors. ( I once spent the entire day in mom’s lingerie drawer)
2) If you know your cat is missing, grab your cellphone with a photo of your cat uploaded, flashlight and treats and head out. Wear comfortable clothes and comfortable soft-soled shoes. Hit the streets
3) While you’re searching, ask pedestrians, knock on neighbor’s doors and show the photo. Ask if you can check their garage, sheds, under the porch. To save time, multi-task during the search: leave a missing cat report with your vet, Animal Control, all the other local vets, shelters and rescue groups.
4) When you return home, leave food and water outside your door. Local TNR rescue rescues will often lend a trap. Go outside one last time to check and call your cat’s name before bedtime.
5) If you haven’t already made a missing cat poster, make one. Include: A good photograph, your cat’s name, description, any special identifying marks or collar, when last seen and where (cross street), your phone and e-mail. adding contact info at the bottom of the page cut into four or five vertical strips that can be easily torn off is helpful.
6) Enlist family and friends to help post flyers and spread the word. Have push pins, tape and a staple gun depending on the surface. The best posting spots include street intersection poles, local bulletin boards at grocery stores, library, laundromat and community center.
7) Post missing cats reports at online at Tabbytracker Craigslist, local online newspapers Use social networking like Facebook and Twitter. Ask everyone to share.
8) Visit all your local shelters to look for yourself even if say they don’t have a cat of your description.
9) If you’ve recently moved, extend your search to your old neighborhood.
10) Persevere! Cats have returned weeks and months later. Keep networking, and asking neighbors if they’ve noticed anything. Keep your flyers or posters fresh with a “Still Missing” header.
Today’s poem was selected by my dad!

I Could Pee on This
Her new sweater doesn’t smell of me
I could pee on that
She’s gone out for the day and
left her laptop on the counter
I could pee on that
Her new boyfriend just pushed
my head away
I could pee on him
She’s ignoring me ignoring her
I could pee everywhere
She’s making up for it
by putting me on her lap
I could pee on this
I could pee on this
—Charles Bukowski (or maybe his cat.)

Love to you all,
Talley

♥ Well, guess I best tell you that I haven't been feeling too well lately!!!! Mom had SUSPICIONS about me so here's what happened; mom followed me all around the house when I was awake. Said she didn't trust me since I peed on the kitchen counter Monday. She followed me til I decided to use the potty box.

♥ TUESDAY morning 8/25; Mom managed to get a urine sample Monday night so she took it in to The Veterinary Hospital right after she did her morning kitty chores then came back home. Mom then left about 10:00am as she had to go clean an elderly gentleman's (Bud)home which she does once per month. Shortly after mom got home, Dr. Nancy called mom about 2:30 confirming mom's suspicion about as I do have a UTI so a bit later mom had to go pick up the antibiotic Simplicef 100mg pills. Mom had Dad kitty sit me so I wouldn't pee inappropriately.

♥ SAUSHA #22506 does good then a few days or so goes by when she will vomit so mom calls it in to have it on Record. She has one more day left on her antibiotic. Mom misses her loud purring as she rarely does that anymore.

Hi Ginger Spicegirl and Mom!
Today is supposed to be in the low 90’s so we went out early for our stroller walk. Then Mom took our neighbor out for a ride in her wheelchair. The sun was already out, so Mom hooked an umbrella on the wheelchair to keep the sun off of Abarna. We watched them from the bay window and laughed at how silly they looked. MOL!

This morning my Mom was filling the syringes with my pureed cat food and I sat by the kitchen watching her. Normally I run off when she comes towards me so she has to catch me first. But today I didn’t. Mom got on the ground next to me, petting me and letting me sniff the syringe. I swallowed the first one like a good boy and Mom waited for me to run. Nope! I sat there waiting for more! Mom gave me my second one along with a big hug. Dad was watching and said to Mom, “Oh no, I hope he doesn’t get used to eating this way. How will I ever be able to feed him when you’re not here?” Mom isn’t worried. She just wants to get some weight on me with this prescription food and hopefully when I go back for my urine retest, I’ll get a clean bill of health. Baby steps Dad!

Oh my goodness! Winslet is a gorgeous black kitty. She looks our our cat furiend next door named Sugar Bear! We're so happy to hear Winslet found a home after working at the Second Life Resale shop. Your Mom does the work of the angels! Give her a soft hug for us sweetie. You both are always in our prayers.

We left a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

This Is My Chair =^.^=
~~~~~
This is my chair.
Go away and sit somewhere else.
This one is all my own.
It is the only thing in your house that I possess
And insist upon possessing.
Everything else therein is yours.
My dish,
My toys,
My basket,
My scratching post and my Ping-Pong ball;
You provided them for me.
This chair I selected for myself.
I like it,
It suits me.
You have the sofa,
The stuffed chair
And the footstool.
I don’t go and sit on them do I?
Then why cannot you leave me mine,
And let us have no further argument?

- by Paul Gallico

Hi sweet Gin Gin, It's me, Talley,
COTM DAY 26

I'd like to take a moment, before we begin today’s blog, to thank every one of you, who took the time to come by and offer your support during my catpaign. I feel like I've learned a lot from all of you, and I hope I've offered you some ideas you may not have thought of before. I truly am grateful for your comments, ideas and help.
Well, tonight, I'll address a subject that I probably should have mentioned before. That is “spreading the word.” Shelters have wonderful kitties just waiting for someone to love. There are lots of people who feel lonely and troubled whose lives could be transformed for the better by a furry companion. How do we get them together? Advertising is the answer. It’s effective, but expensive. There is free publicity though, It is through the news media. It can be as simple as writing letters to the editor of your local newspaper, or it can involve establishing a rapport with local television and promoting shelter adoptions. Remember, there are lots of loving kitties available at a much lower cost than going to a breeder or pet shop. (dad has a hard time going to PetSmart on weekends because he always wants to bring all of the kitties home. The important thing though is to get the word out. People who live with pets live longer healthier lives than those who don't. Alley Cat Allies has a media primer on the website and it offers great ideas and sample letters and news releases. The address is http://www.alleycat. org/NetCommunity/Page.aspx?pid=373 . So, to get started, let's resolve to write at least one letter to the newspaper during the month of my reign.

Regarding the Coronation Ball, We still need to arrange the details with Queens,Angel Ginger and Maggie, but one thing is certain. Every one of the kitties on CC is invited to the CMR resort on September 1st, to celebrate at the Coronation Ball, There will be a speech (a very short one, I promise) and wonderful food, , and there will be dancing too. I want to purrsonally shake paws and hug each and every one of you.


And now today, something a little different:

An Old Russian Prayer
Hear our prayer Lord, for all animals,
May they be well-fed and well-trained and happy;
Protect them from hunger and fear and suffering;
And, we pray, protect specially, dear Lord,
The little cat who is the companion of our home,
Keep her safe as she goes abroad,
And bring her back to comfort us

And a poem

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray this cushy life to keep.
I pray for toys that look like mice,
And sofa cushions, soft and nice,
For grocery bags where I can hide,
Just like a tiger, crouched inside!
I pray for gourmet Kitty snacks,
And someone nice to scratch my back,
For window sills all warm and bright,
For shadows to explore at night.
I pray I’ll always stay real cool,
And keep the secret feline rule
To NEVER tell a human that
The world is really ruled by CATS!


I love you all,
Talley

Good Morning Gin Gin,
How are you pretty girl, spiffing yourself up for me I see, I just don't think there is a prettier Calico kitty than you are, so no need to fuss!!! :)
How are you & mom doing?? We are all doing OK. Mom & Dad took Dot & I out the other night, we chased each other all over the back yard and I chased her up a tree 3 times, she couldn't hold on though cause mom did pawdicures last weekend!!MOL!!! I did a really good job of making mom smile, She is still missing her Shadow though.
A friend of Dads wife called Mom on Sunday, she has been feeding a stray kitty for awhile and she had asked dad about her last week, dad said he thought she was pregnant and it wouldn't be long...well she had 4 kitties on Caturday night outside. They have security cameras where she watched them and saw some raccoons poking around. She was so worried she brought them all into the house and put them in a very large kennel and called mom. She has never had a kitty before so mom has been helping, mom has about 10 litters under her belt!!MOL!! One of them, the runt passed Sunday night, but the other three are doing good. Mom thinks its the mom's first litter she looks to be very young, but she is doing a great job of taking care of the kitty's. Mom went and saw them yesterday on the way home from the Barn. She is sending the camera with dad today to get some pictures. :) The funny thing is Dads friend is a dog guy, but who does the kitty come to...the Dad!!!MOL!!! We thing the Dad is smitten by the kitten mom!!! MOL!!! Well pretty girl I had better get a move on!!! Hope you & Mom have a pawsome day!!!
Hugs, Kitty Kisses & much love, K. Tuck

Hi sweet Gin Gin, It's me, Talley,
COTM DAY 25
Yesterday was a wonderful day here in Jacksonville. It was 85 and not a cloud in the sky. We didn’t get any thunder boomers either. There was a nice breeze and we got to play in the screened patio while mom & dad worked in the flower beds. Dad has a couple of square foot gardens, and he took some of the tired tomato plants out and put in some lettuce, parsley, beans, and CATNIP. Mom planted flowers, in the front yard beds and down the driveway beds.

Today, I’d like to tell you about an Alley Cat Allies program that helps community awareness of the needs that stray and feral kitties have. It's called Every Kitty – Every City.

http://www.alleycat.org/EveryKittyEveryCity

This what Alley Cat Allies says about the program:
Through the Every Kitty – Every City program, we raise awareness and educate the community in targeted cities about outdoor cats, feral cat colony care, Trap-Neuter-Return, and the importance of accessible, affordable neuter services through workshops, outreach programs, and organizing.

The Every Kitty – Every City program provides individuals, groups, and veterinary professionals in the community with the tools and basic knowledge needed to serve as a community resource. As part of the program, Alley Cat Allies rallies and assists community volunteers, local groups, and private shelters to enhance their already existing Trap-Neuter-Return programs or to seamlessly launch new ones.
Alley Cat Allies sponsors workshops, open to the public, for advice and instruction on the best practices of Trap-Neuter-Return and colony care. We also recruit and help train local veterinary professionals on high-volume, low-cost techniques that will increase the availability of affordable neuter services including early-age spay/neuter and vaccination protocol. To start a program in your city, contact one of the existing programs, Or contact Alley Cat Allies!
This program was vital in establishing the TNR program of No More Homeless Pets, here in Jacksonville.

And now, a funny poem for today:

All I Need To Know About Life
I Learned From My Cat

Life is hard, and then you nap.
One day ignore people, the next day annoy them.
When in doubt cop an attitude.
Curiosity never killed anything except maybe a few hours.
Climb your way to the top, that's why the drapes are there.
Never sleep alone when you can sleep on someone's face.
If you're not receiving enough attention,
try knocking over several expensive lamps.
Make your mark in the world or at least spray each corner.
When you go out into the world, remember:
being placed on a pedestal is a right, not a privilege.

Thank you so much for your love and support! I love you all,
Talley

So pawsomely quiet in the house...
that I finally get to meow at everyfur!! Thank you for pouncing by to celebrate my adopty day with me on the 20th...& for the catgrats on my being COTD on the 21st! I enjoyed all of your blogs, the wonderful gifts, beautiful balloons, scrumptious goodies & your loving purrs of furiendship. Thank you SO much for sharing my 2 special days with me!!

It was a super busy weekend with the 1 year old grandson crawling all around the house but we survived...MOL! He was a very good boy the entire weekend but he's getting harder to keep up now that he's crawling so fast. He was standing on his own too so pretty soon the crawling will stop & walking/running will start. Then the real fun will begin for his mommy & daddy...MOL!
Mom managed to get her free windows 10 upgrade done while he was here but is just now getting programs installed to open her files. So far she likes it (except for the mail program) so thinks she'll keep using it instead of reverting back to her old operating system. She's already downloaded the mail program she likes, a word & excel program to open her transferred files, installed her new printer & connected everything (via cloud) to her phone to make things faster & easier. She's not sure everything is 'normal' yet but I'm sure she'll find out soon enough if she's missing anything important...MOL!

JJ has returned to the great outdoors...although reluctantly because he loved the attention he got in here...MOL! He's been staying close to home & has been avoiding Bartholomew as much as he can so hopefully he can keep himself out of trouble for a while. His fur has all grown back now that his wounds are completely healed. He's still nervous about noises & unexpected things but purrhaps that will make him more cautious about getting into or going places he isn't supposed to. Keeping my paws crossed on that one...MOL!
Our 2 outside kittens (Libby aka Nibby Libby & her brother Sundance) are doing great & are growing like little weeds. The rest of the outside crew are doing fine too but they're not liking our cooler temps this week.

Well I've got to get going for now so I can bake an anniversary cake for Fluffinella & Joey's 1st year together...& also one for mom & dad who will be celebrating 37 years of wedded bliss tomorrow too. I probably won't be doing anything but voting tomorrow but I'll be back again later in the week. Thanks again for celebrating my adopty day & COTD award winning days with me!!

Big paw hugs,
Patches
