Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Happy Belated Birthday to your sweet Mom! We hope she had a wonderful day and we wish her the happiest year ever! She already has the happiest kitties ever! MOL! Give her big, soft kitty kisses for us.

Meow-za! Looks like we’re going to make it to another Coronation! Keeping our paws crossed!

After two days of temps in the low 100’s, we are expecting a cool down to 85-87 degrees. Who would have thought we’d think that was cool?! Anything under 90 degrees is wonderful! Mom didn’t think she was going to be able to trap Scamper in his cat carrier yesterday. He is no dummy and he stayed cleared of the carrier in the garage. But as the afternoon was heating up, Mom went outside to put ice cubes in the water bowls. Scamper was napping on his cathouse. He looked up at Mom and then went back to cat napping. Very nonchalant, Mom filled the outside kibble bowl, and when she had the chance, she turned to sweep him up her arms...not knowing if she would get mauled, but it was worth a shot. Scamper seemed stunned and did not do anything! Mom was in the house with him before he knew what was happening. Still holding him in her arms, Mom took him upstairs to George’s room, where he stayed all day. Mom put up the doggie gate and Scamper doesn’t even try to jump over it. It’s kind of sad though. This will have been two days he’s been inside and he never leaves this one spot in the room- up on a folded futon in the corner of the room. He doesn’t meow or make any sounds at all. He sleeps on all fours, with his head resting on his front paws- opening his eyes when Mom would visit with him. Both times in the evening, Scamper would follow Mom down the stairs, through the kitchen and out the door into his garage. This morning, he seems to be on to Mom. When she tried to get close to comb his fur, he jumped back and watched Mom warily. But Mom feels like real progress was made with Scamper. Today he is catnapping in his favorite bed in the garage. At least he didn’t run away from home!

Our neighbor Abarna is looking stronger each day. Mom checks in with her and her son everyday. Mom always takes food over and Abarna laughed saying her and Ganesh have never eaten so well! That made our Mom happy!

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

What It Means To Be A Cat Owner... =^.^=
~~~~~
• You will find yourself at the cat food section of your supermarket longer than any other, as you ponder which varieties he might — but only MIGHT — eat this week.

• You must practice saying, "Oh, he's never been up there before," as if it were true, when your cat leaps onto the table to see what the dinner guests have left.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Happy Meowsday to our CC furiends! Looks like we’re going to make it to another Coronation! Hip-hip-hooray!

The temp here in San Jose is 102 degrees at 2 p.m. and it will peak at around 4 p.m. The weatherman posted a heat advisory, warning humans to watch over their kids AND pets. It’s a very dry heat and the sun feels very hot when outside. Mom had the rare opportunity to trap our outside furiend Scamper while he was catnapping in the large pet carrier in the garage this morning. SO you guessed it! Mom brought Scamper inside the house where she has him in George’s room upstairs with a doggie gate to keep him contained to the room. All of us kitties have checked him out, peeping through the gate and we’re happy to report only Whitey hissed at him. The rest of us just sniffed and ran back to our various cat beds. Mom knows Scamper could easily scale the doggie gate, but so far he seems content in the room. He seems to like the big, folded up futon that is stored in the far corner of the room. He probably feels safest there. Mom still hasn’t figured out how she’ll get Scamper outside again, but she’ll worry about that later. Mom closes the bedroom door when she checks on our neighbor Abarna, and so far Scamper has been fine.

Uuuummm! Bet the brisket in the slow cooker made your house smell wonderful! Your Mom is a great cook! Thank you so much for the angel dust for Abarna. You are such wonderful furiends!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Our temps are supposed to hit the triple digits today through Wednesday, then hopefully start cooling down. We shall see. Mom has the house all closed up for the A/C and she watered the backyard this morning so it will stay cooler for our outside furiend Scamper. He is already catnapping under his favorite bush.

Our Mom has been shirking her duties as our official blogger. We just might have to replace her. MOL! Mom tries to help out with our neighbor Abarna as much as she can. Abarna fell down in her bathroom late yesterday, trying to do stuff on her own, but she is okay. She hurt her right arm and shoulder, but nothing sprained or broken. Mom helped Abarna take a nice warm bath in the bathtub which made her feel a lot better.

Wow! You kitties have a cat tunnel? That sounds like fun! We hope your weather has cooled down some. We love you guys!

We hope you and your families are having a wonderful, relaxing weekend.

FELINE MIND GAMES =^.^=
Watch Your Step... Trying to walk into a different room, particularly if you’re carrying something, will become a new Olympic sport if you have a cat or two in the house. Weaving between your legs and slowly walking right in front of you to make you stop and change directions will have you losing your balance and stumbling. How cats are able to anticipate exactly where your foot is about to land and end up being right in that spot as you take your next step is a true feline talent. Your cat steers you onto a new course, usually towards the refrigerator and the chicken leftovers he saw you put in there. =^.^=

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Today is the first day of fall and our weather is cooperating...at least for today. We are only expecting a high of 72 degrees. Hooray! BUT, another heat wave is coming this weekend where we’ll shoot back up into the high 90’s. Drat! We’re keeping our paws crossed that this is the last heat wave. Summer just doesn’t want to go away!

Our Mom is going to San Diego the weekend of October 15th to attend her niece’s wedding. The ceremony and reception are being held at a beautiful place called “Bella Terrace Estate,” so Mom spent yesterday out shopping for a pretty mew dress. It’s been a while since Mom has been out shopping for fancy clothes, so she was gone most of the day, leaving us to fend for ourselves yesterday. That’s okay...my sisters and I catnapped in the window beds and from the bay windows, we could keep an eye on Scamper, who was sleeping in his cathouse out front. Mom did bring home something for us too. She bought a Jackson Galaxy Comfy Clamshell Cat Bed. It’s very soft and you can lay it out flat or pull the drawstring around the bed and it turns into a pocket bed. Right now we are all still curious and very wary of it, but my sister Callie finally took the plunge and laid down on it for a short nap. Guess Callie has dibs on it!

Thank you to all our dear CC furiends for the prayers and get well wishes for our neighbor Abarna. Little by little she is gaining her strength back and looking much better each day.

Yes, my Mom is very careful walking up and down our stairs, just like your Mom. My Mom tripped over my sister Callie one time, and Mom broke her wrist. After that, Mom always holds on to the rail with at least one hand, and she always looks down where she is walking. We had to teach our Mom the hard way! MOL!

You Had Me At Meow... When just being cute and loving doesn’t work sufficiently, cats will add the meow in an attempt to reason with us on our terms. This is not a “one meow fits all situations” scenario, mind you. Sometimes they resort to using a very annoying and high-pitched meow, which means “I want something,” but it’s your duty to figure out just what that something is. Until you figure it out, the meows get louder and more persistent, and if you don’t guess right, you’ll be the victim of feline revenge. =^.^=

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Well, we made it through two days in the high 90’s, but today we’re back down to 85 degrees and tomorrow is predicted to be in the low 70’s! What’s going on with this weather?! Our Dad said a lot of the kids at school have the sniffles- must be from the roller coaster temps.

Mom took Callie and me on our stroller walk this morning and we stopped by our neighbor’s house to wave at Abarna and her kitties from the window. Abarna has been feeling well enough to make the trip downstairs to lie on the couch. Don’t worry; she doesn’t have to walk down the stairs. Ganesh, her son, installed a while ago, one of those automatic stairlifts. She just has to sit down, relax and enjoy the slow ride. It is painfully slow, but that’s probably a good thing, especially when you have pets. Ebony and Sugar Bear look at it with curiosity, but at a safe distance. It does have a safety sensor that makes it stop if anything obstructs its path, but fortunately she hasn’t had that tested out on the cats. MOL! Abarna said to convey her thanks to all our CC furiends for their well wishes and prayers. Mom likes to share them with Abarna cuz it always puts a smile on her face!

Our Mom prefers the cooler weather too! We are looking forward to Fall. Just when we think it's here, then a heat wave hits!

Ah, we can just picture sweet Rosie carrying the "fridge mice" that your Mom is finding! Sooo cute!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
We hope all our CC furiends and their families had a great weekend. Queen Angel Kieara sure is keeping us busy with a lot of fun and beautiful adventures.

We are having a heat wave, in the high 90’s this afternoon. We’re hoping the weatherman is right and it will start cooling down in the next few days. We have the A/C on in the house, but Mom always worries about our outside furiend Scamper. Mom watered all the trees and plants in the backyard this morning, so Scamper is catnapping in the bushes back there right now. Mom keeps ice cubes in all of his water bowls and she saw some of the birds drinking from them too. Luckily Scamper isn’t interested in the birds right now...it’s too hot!

Mom checks in on our neighbor several times a day. Tonight Mom is cooking a rib roast with carrots and red potatoes as the trimmings. There is plenty for our neighbors and us. I made sure Mom set aside a piece of the roast for us kitties. MOL! Abarna is doing a little better each day. After our trip to Mackinaw Island with our Queen, Mom dug out her DVD of the movie, “Somewhere In Time,” to share with Abarna and her son. They had never seen it and they loved it! Get the handkerchiefs out for that movie. It always gets the tears flowing here. Hee, hee!

Wow! Your Dad hit the mother lode of cat toys when he moved your refrigerator! So that's where they were hiding! MOL! We hope your weather is cooling some. We hate when it gets humid too. Here it is just darn hot!

Gotta run dear CC furiends. We’re glad CC is still with us. We’re keeping our paws crossed that we make it the entire month!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Happy Saturday to our CC furiends and thanks for all the get well wishes for our neighbor Abarna. Our Mom checks on her several times a day and always smiles when she sees Ebony and Sugar Bear staying close by their Mom. Such good kitties! Aren’t we all?!

We’re expecting a real warm up in the weather this weekend. Today will be in the low 90’s and Sunday through Monday might even hit 100. Yikes! Just we thought summer was over. We are so looking forward to fall weather. Mom is going to keep us all inside so our outside furiend Scamper can have access to the backyard. Even though it will be hot, the backyard always seems cooler with all the shade from the trees, shrubs and patio cover.

Did you all see the full moon last night? We enjoyed it at Angel Queen Gracie’s Harvest Full Moon Pawty on the Pinto and what a pawty that was! We’re so happy CC was still around for one more. Dare we hope for another one?! Anyway, our outside furiend Scamper was out enjoying the full moon, cuz Mom couldn’t find him last night. Mom couldn’t sleep without worrying, so she waited up for the big guy and sure enough, around 10:30 p.m., Scamper showed up hungry and tired. Mom fed him and he went right into the garage and curled up in his bed. Finally Mom came to bed so WE could get some sleep. MOL!

Oh sweetie, we know your dear Mom misses Angel Finster and all of her angels a lot...especially when she sees places around the house with so many memories. We hope and pray your Mom can close her eyes at those moments, remember the good times and try to smile. Give your precious Mom a comforting angel kitty hug for us.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Can you believe we’ve made it to the middle September with CC still going strong?! We’re keeping our paws crossed that the powers-that-be, forgets about shutting us down. We sure wouldn’t mind if we somehow slipped through the cracks- just like a cat. MOL!

We’re supposed to top out at 85 degrees today and now they are predicting the low 90’s by the weekend. Our Mom took Callie and me for an early morning stroller walk by the creek. Yes, there is still a small trickle of water flowing and a few ducks are still there puddling around. We never forget to bring duck food, birdseed and water for the bucket. The water bucket is always empty, so some critters prefer it to the creek water!

Afterwards our Mom went next door to visit our neighbor Abarna and her kitties. It was time for Ebony and Sugar Bear’s flea treatment, so Mom took care of that. Neither cat likes the smelly medicine, so they were ready for Mom to leave. Hee, hee! Next week it’s our turn. Yikes! Ebony and Sugar Bear have been spending a lot of time cuddling with their Mom in her bed. Cats really are the best nurses! Abarna looks very frail, but Mom is glad to see her resting with her furbabies.

Okay, it looks like another cleaning day here. We’re always hoping Mom will give that noisy vacuum monster a rest, but Nooooo!!

Wow! Holly is turning one year old already?! Where does time go? And sweet, precious Ling is going to be 16! God bless them both and your wonderful family. It's a cat's paradise at your loving home!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Our weather purrson reported we will have one more nice day in the 70’s, which has been very unusual for September, but by tomorrow the temps will start creeping back up to the high 80’s this weekend. That’s not too hot...we’re not complaining. The weather has been very pleasant, especially for our outside furiend Scamper.

Mom checked on our neighbor Abarna this morning, and her breathing sounds better. She even has a little color in face! Her son Ganesh is keeping a close eye on her and Mom is helping out with the cats and every day household chores. That way Abarna can relax and rest.

Mom was at Petco yesterday and found some cat stair steps for Ebony and Sugar Bear to use when getting into bed with their Mom. It was quite a jump for her cats to get into her hospital bed. Mom saw these carpeted steps (4 steps) at Petco and knew they would be purrfect. She put them against the railing at the foot of Abarna’s bed, and voila! Ebony and Sugar Bear can walk right up into her bed. Mom was worried about Ebony jumping and flopping onto her bed. He weighs 17 pounds! Problem solved! Thanks to all our CC furiends for their get well wishes for Abarna. CC furiends are the best!

Yum! Your Mom's stuffed mushrooms sound delicious! Healthy too! Yes, macaroni salad has a lot of calories, but the taste is worth it!

Our Mom can't understand why none of us like to chase the laser cat toy. We always just stare at it and then at Mom, as if saying, "Well, what do you want us to do Mom?!" MOL!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
It’s been hard to get good help around lately...hee, hee, hee! Our blogger has been a little busy running back and forth to our neighbor’s house, helping out Abarna and Ganesh as much as she can. And spending time with Abarna. Abarna is still having trouble with her breathing. She is seeing a cardiologist today. Mom prepared a yummy recipe called Lemon Mushroom Chicken for them tonight. The recipe is from Talley’s Dad Mike, and he is a great cook. Mom set aside some chicken for us kitties too, without the spices.

We are all doing fine. Our weather today and the next couple of days will be in the low 70’s. We love it! But this weekend it will go back up to the high 80’s. Oh well, we’ll enjoy it while we can.

We’re so happy to see CC is still with us! Keeping our paws crossed.:)

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
It was a hot 97 degrees here yesterday, but today we dropped back down to the 80’s. The nights have gotten noticeably cooler, so we can tell summer is coming to an end. When it’s hot outside, Mom turns on the A/C and makes me and my sisters come inside. Then she opens up the backyard for Scamper. The backyard gets less sun in the afternoon and a lot of shade.

We had a leaky bathroom faucet today that needed to be fixed. Mom got out her handy do-it-yourself Home Book, made a trip to the hardware store and finally had success, although it took the ole gal an entire day. MOL! Dad was happy when he got home cuz he hates calling a plumber. Maybe with the money Mom saved, she can buy us some kitty surprises. Hee, hee!

We’re always happy to see that CC is still with us. We’ve almost made it another week!

Thank you so much for the angel dust for our neighbor Abarna. You are such a sweet angel! Give your dear Mom a soft angel kitty hug for us. We know how much your Mom misses her angels, but we know you are always watching over her.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
We hope your Labor Day holiday was nice dear furiends! We have good mews! Our neighbor Abarna came home from the hospital yesterday. She’ll need lots of rest, but she’s home and her kitties were SO happy to see their Mom! Abarna started to cry when both Ebony and Sugar Bear ran right up to her as our Mom let them out of their cat carriers. She was sitting down of course, and they both rubbed against her legs, back and forth, and purring up a storm. And just when my sisters and I were getting used to having kitty company at our house! Hee, hee!

We had our house painted over the long weekend. Mom had completely forgotten our house was scheduled to be painted Labor Day weekend. But we’re happy to report, with all the noise from the painters outside, my sisters and I got along very well with our kitty guests, Ebony and Sugar Bear. It’s funny how being scared from the noise, made us all allies. Hee, hee! Mom even spotted me hiding under the bed with Ebony!

But all in all, our Mom was proud of us. She said we were gracious hosts.:) Whitey and Callie were more annoyed than anything. They would give Ebony and Sugar Bear the “Evie eye” whenever they got too close. MOL! Orangie and I were curious and tried to be furiendly.

Our outside furiend, Scamper is doing fine too. He stayed hidden in one of the hedges that borders our neighbor’s house while the painters were working. Mom kept an eye on him. Then in the evening Mom would call him for dinner and he always came running home. Such a good boy!

We’re expecting temps in the mid 90’s today. We haven’t had a heat wave in a while, so I guess we’re due. Mom is cleaning house today so it’s a good day for catnapping.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
We got a very late start again today again...Mom’s fault! Hee, hee! Mom was helping her neighbor Ganesh, set up the house for his Mom’s return home, hopefully next week. Ganesh ordered a nice hospital bed that is much bigger than the ones at the hospital. It has remote controls to adjust just about everything. The only thing is that it looks kind of scary with the rails along the sides. Not sure how Ebony and Sugar Bear will like it. Mom thinks the two kitties will be so happy to have their Mom back, they won’t even notice.:)

Since Mom was gone most of the afternoon, she had to lock Ebony and Sugar Bear in their room. The room they’re using is George’s room, so it has two kitty sills in the window and several cat shelves on the wall, plus a cat tree! They don’t fuss or meow at all when Mom shuts them in there. But so far every time Mom gets home and checks on them, both cats are laying on George’s bed! MOL! They’re no dummies!

We’re still closely watching that awful Hurricane Hermine on the news and keeping all our friends in our prayers that are affected. George and his pawrents live in South Carolina now, but they called and are doing okay. Just some tree clean up was needed. George’s Dad told Mom that George had his flashlight out last night when it was really windy, aiming it out the back window. George was checking on his swing set in their backyard. He didn’t want that to fly away! MOL! Thankfully it did not!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
We apologize for the cut & paste. It’s been kind of busy around here with our “kitty guests,” Ebony and Sugar Bear, but we did make it to Queen Angel Kieara’s Coronation. It was beautiful and we were all so happy that CC was still around for the magical event. We’re hoping and praying for another one next month. You never know!

Our neighbor Abarna had hoped to come home from the hospital this weekend, but it looks like her doctors want her to stay until after the holiday weekend...just to be safe. Our Mom stops by the hospital every day to visit and lets Abarna know that her kitties are doing fine. And they really are too! Ebony has started to come half way down the stairs and today Sugar Bear followed him. None of us are fighting, although Whitey did give Sugar Bear a couple of paw swipes for getting too close, but Mom was there to put a stop to it. Sugar Bear likes to run- very fast- and that seems to annoy Whitey. Callie and Orangie are doing fine by just ignoring them.

I, on the other hand, was very interested in their cat food! I managed to sneak a taste the first day they were here. Their food tasted so good! They eat something called ZiwiPeak and ever since I was able to sneak a few bites, I can’t get it out of mind. I know, I have to stick to my prescription diet. (Heavy sigh!) So now Mom has to lock us up in a room while we eat. Callie and me; Whitey and Orangie; Ebony and Sugar Bear. :( I let Mom know I was not happy with this arrangement by refusing to eat my food. So Mom is back to “syringe” feeding me. She doesn’t want me getting sick over this.

Our furry furiend outside, Scamper, is doing fine. The weather has been nice, in the 80’s, and he loves to sleep in his cathouse, then he comes into the garage at night for bedtime. He’s a good boy!

Another day with our CC furiends- now that’s a very good day!

We’re keeping all our dear furiends in the path of Hurricane Hermine, in our prayers. Please stay safe!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
It has been busy around here the past few days, so we apologize for not meowing to our CC furiends like we wish we could. Mom has been busy helping out with our neighbor next door, getting ready for Abarna to come home. Abarna is still in the hospital, recovering ever so slowly, but she is recovering. Her lungs and breathing sound so much better and she is even smiling. She misses her kitties, Ebony and Sugar Bear, very much. This weekend, her son Ganesh started to have quite a few relatives arrive from out of town. Our Mom got real nervous about the kitties possibly escaping from their house, so Mom brought Ebony and Sugar Bear over here for a few days. Yep, we have kitty company! Mom set them up late Saturday in one bedroom, until she figured out how to handle it. My sisters and I were curious about who was behind that closed door, so we all camped outside the closed bedroom door...waiting. MOL! Mom slept with Ebony and Sugar Bear. Late Sunday, Mom decided to put up one of her grandson’s “child-safe gates” in the door. They are much more substantial than the usual “pet-gate.” We all sniffed each other through the gate and finally Mom opened the gate! It was funny- Ebony and Sugar Bear stayed inside the room and my sisters and I just kept passing by the open door, peeking our heads in every now and then. Ebony finally was brave enough to explore the upstairs hallway, but both kitties seem content for now, to just relax in their room.

Today there has been no hissing or growling (from Callie or Whitey!), but not much mingling either. Mom is proud of us kitties for how well behaved we have all been. Mom was expecting an episode from “My Cat From Hell!” See Mom, all that worrying for nothing!:) Mom is still going to lock our guests up in the room before she leaves anywhere.

We hope you all had a nice weekend. It’s great to see CC is still with us!

We hope you guys are still enjoying your open windows and staying cool!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
We’re happy and hopeful as we report our neighbor Abarna is responding to her medications and as of last night when our Mom saw her at the hospital, her breathing sounds a lot better. Whew! Those CC prayers are miracle workers.:) Abarna seems to be on the road to recovery, but her doctors are watching her closely and it doesn’t look like she’ll be home for a while yet. Mom is taking good care of Ebony and Sugar Bear next door, keeping them fed, happy and brushing their fur twice a day, so that the house stays nice and clean. They have a maid that comes twice a week, but Mom is keeping the house dusted and fur-free!

Our outside furiend Scamper didn’t come home last night like he normally does, so Mom stayed up until 11 pm, waiting and worrying. Still no Scamper. Then at 2 am this morning, we all heard a cat meowing outside in the front yard. I heard it first because I like to sleep on the kitty sill bed by the open window. Mom and I looked outside and there was Scamper! Hooray! Mom ran outside, opened the garage door, popped open a can of food and in ran Scamper! Needless to say, he slept in late this morning before Mom opened up the garage door for him. He is such a good boy!

My Mom only had dogs before she was blessed with us cats. Our Dad would like to get a dog once he retires next year. Mom says she has to think long and hard about it. We'll see.:|

It looks like we just might make to another Coronation on CC! We are always so happy to see CC still up and running! Have a great weekend dear furiends.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
My sister Callie and I had a little bit of excitement on our stroller walk this morning. There was a puppy without a leash, playing in the creek. His human was watching him, so Mom didn’t worry about us until the puppy must have smelled us and came galloping over to our stroller. Yikes! Mom got in front and caught the rambunctious doggie before he could jump up to look in the stroller. I was hissing and Callie was hiding under the blankets. The doggie’s owner ran over apologizing as he leashed his dog. He laughed when he saw Mom had us cats inside the stroller...but my sister and I weren’t laughing! I was ready to fight! MOL!

Mom boiled some chicken breasts for us and took some next door for Ebony and Sugar Bear. Their Mom Abarna had another rough day at the hospital yesterday, but this morning her son Ganesh spoke to Mom and said Abarna’s breathing is finally sounding better, so hopefully her body is responding to the medications. Your get well wishes and prayers are working wonders.:) Mom is taking good care of her furbabies and will go visit Abarna at the hospital again this evening.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
It’s always a happy day when we see that CC is still us. We are all doing fine, enjoying some nice low 80 degree temperatures. The small lump in my sister Callie’s mouth is almost gone, so thankfully it was just a bump from too much roughhousing. Of course all the good wishes from our CC furiends helped a lot!

Our Mom went to visit our neighbor Abarna in the hospital last night... But first she took a picture of her kitties, Ebony and Sugar Bear, used Photoshop to put them together with a sign that said, “Get Well Mom! We Miss You!” and then printed it out on our color printer and put into a frame. Abarna was delighted! She misses her furbabies and wants to come home to them, but it won’t be for a while. Abarna is still having a lot of trouble breathing so they are keeping her in the ICU for now.

Mom was talking with Abarna’s son Ganesh at the hospital when his sister showed up to see their Mom. The sister lives about an hour away. The sister is not a “pet purrson.” She told her brother that the first thing they need to do when their Mom gets better, is get rid of those messy cats. Mom glared at her, but Ganesh spoke up right away and said the cats are the love of his Mom’s life right now and that they are not going anywhere! Later Ganesh pulled our Mom aside and told her he loves the cats too and they are not messy. :)

Orangie wanted me to convey her meows of thanks for all the concatulations on her engagement to handsome Hedley. She is purring like a kitty in love! ♥

Aw dear furiend, we wish that Pudding and Felix could have had a wedding on CC. I guess the important thing is that your dear Mom stays in touch with his family. That's nice.

Holly sounds like such a silly and adorable kitty! Chasing flies and lasers! Hey, that's great exercise. None of us here ever fell for that laser toy. We just looked at it and wondered what Mom was doing. MOL!

Glad to hear Ling has clean ears now! We all hate getting that done too! You kitties are so lucky to have such a wonderful Mom!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
We’re so happy to see CC is still here with us. We hope we can make it through the rest of the month. That would be grand!

We’re trying to get caught up today on my blogs. Our neighbor Abarna had to go to the hospital this weekend. She was having a very hard time breathing and she is being treated for pneumonia. Her doctors will be running some tests on her heart today and her son Ganesh is with her at the hospital. Our Mom will be taking care of Ebony and Sugar Bear.:(

We do have some happy mews though. My sister Orangie is walking on air since Hedley (One of the Pawty Animals!) asked her to be his wife! He popped the question Thursday evening while they were out to dinner. Looks like another wedding is in the future! Hooray!

The rest of us are doing well. The weather is only in the low 80’s today, so hopefully we’ll get to catnap in the backyard today.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Who would have guessed that we would still be here on CC at the end of this week?! Not us, but we’re not complaining. We all have our paws crossed that we make it to another Coronation. Whoops, I better not jinx it. MOL!

Mom stained and waterproofed the backyard deck early this morning, so it will be off limits to us today. Drat! That’s okay though...it’s going to be another warm one, so it should ready for our furiend Scamper tonight. Now the deck is ready for winter and hopefully some much needed rain.

The swelling on my sister Callie’s lower lip looks much better since the vet gave her a steroid shot, but it’s not gone yet. Mom is keeping a close eye on it, although it doesn’t seem to hurt Callie.

Hee, hee, hee! The amount of cat fur your Mom and my Mom get from vacuuming, why they could make yarn for blankets and sell them!

Have a wonderful weekend dear CC furiends! We hope you stay cooler than it has been. We love you and your family very much!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Hooray! CC is still with us! Every day is a blessing! We’re going to be in the high 80’s today, much better than the 90 temps we’ve been having.

Mom took Ebony and Sugar Bear to the vet yesterday for their rabies and booster shots. Our neighbor Abarna, who is their Cat Mom, has been under the weather with a summer cold, so our Mom was more than happy to help out. Both Ebony and Sugar Bear were good kitties and took their shots like champs. Mom also had a vet appointment for my sister Callie. Mom noticed a small lump on Callie’s lower lip a couple of days ago and was concerned. Dr. Natt checked it out and determined it is just a bad abrasion from being bumped. Dr. Natt said she usually sees these on dogs, not cats. She asked Mom if Callie has been rough housing in the backyard, but Callie is not very active at age 12. The abrasion is not infected, just swollen, so Callie got a steroid shot for the swelling and Mom is going to keep a close eye on it. It hasn’t affected Callie’s appetite and it she doesn’t seem to be in pain, so hopefully the steroid shot will help.

We too are so sad our dear furiend K. Rhoamin was called back to Heaven, but when we sit back and think of the wonderful life he had with his precious family, well, it just puts a smile on all our faces. K. Rhoamin was indeed one of the luckiest cats in the world.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Looks like this week the temperature is going stay in the 90’s. We can’t complain since many of the surrounding areas are in the 100’s. We hope all our CC furiends are staying safe and cool. We sure hope your heat wave is letting up soon. The humidity makes it so much worse. We are not humid...just a dry, hot heat.

Our Dad started school today. We all waved our paws at him this morning from our cat beds in the bay window. Dad leaves at 5:30 in the morning, so we’re all back to getting up early. Plenty of time to catnap later. MOL!

We’re all happy to see CC still up and running on our computer today. Do we dare hope for another Coronation?! Wouldn’t that be wonderful?!

Yummy! Tuna Salad sounds delicious, especially on a hot day! Plus your Mom probably makes it extra delicious! Give your family soft angel kitty hugs for us sweetie!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Whew! We made it to another Caturday with CC still up and running. Our Mom checked it out before she left for her Saturday morning grocery shopping trip and of course a stop at Petco. Mom had two 10 dollar Petco coupons she needed to use. She got all of us mew Cosmic Catnip Bananas, and one for our furiend Scamper. He likes to keep his cat toys inside of his cathouse. The temperature will be in the mid 90’s today so Mom turned on the fans in the garage early to keep it as cool as pawsible for Scamper.

Our Dad starts teaching school again next week, so he’s busy getting prepared. This is his last year teaching before retiring. Hooray!
Once Mom puts away that awful vacuum monster, it looks like today will be purrfect for catnapping. We hope your weekend is wonderful! Try to stay cool dear furiends.

“Cats are serene, intelligent, playful — and it's only non-cat owners who will tell you that they are aloof, independent, cannot be trained and just sleep. But any cat owner knows that, unlike dogs, cats cannot be bought with the cheap offer of a biscuit and a stroke. Cats aren't selfish or aloof, although they might appear that way with people they don't know — but cats choose to be with you. You have to earn a cat's trust, love and affection, and once established it becomes a magical reciprocal relationship. It's not a master-and-pet relationship; they don't challenge for status, have a need to be dominated or battle for control. Instead, it's a relationship about being equals and sharing a life together.” -by Howard Jones =^.^=

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Well, I guess we better get used to checking our computers everyday to see if CC is still up and running. We all get knots in our tummies when we do! We wonder if the powers that be at CC know what they are doing to us?! MOL! But this time, my sisters and I are making sure our Mom keeps learning how to use our mew website homes on Youpet and the Catmewsroom. Practice makes purrfest Mom!

Mom took Callie and me for a walk in our cat stroller this morning. The creek still has a little bit of water in it, enough to keep a few ducks happy. Dad says they must be letting water out of the reservoir that resides a few miles to the east of our house. Our weather has been nice, in the low 80’s, but we’re expecting another heat wave this weekend. That’s okay with us, cuz we keep cool with the AC on in the house and our furiend Scamper stays comfy in the garage with all the fans and air coolers that Mom has set up in there.

We have our paws crossed that CC stays with us for another Coronation. Wouldn’t that be wonderful?!

We're keeping sweet Ling in our prayers dear furiend. We love your family very much and we'll look for you on the Catmewsroom.

There are things cats do that we may consider little "blessings". Just wonderful little unexpected things that can make you smile. Here are a few...

1. Cats that "listen" to you
2. Cats that come to you when you are upset – like they know you need them
3. The purr of a cat
4. Watching a hungry cat eat well
5. Watching a sick cat start to eat well
6. The look of happiness when you pet or talk to a cat
7. Cats that greet you at the door
8. A cat circling your legs at feeding time
9. The lazy look of a sleeping happy cat
10. That lazy cat stretch in the sun that makes you smile
11. Watching a cat ready to pounce on a toy with such intensity
12. When a cat is suddenly "spooked" by nothing
13. When a cat brings you a toy and asks you to play
14. Seeing a cat sleeping, all curled up in a ball

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Long time no meow! It feels eerily quiet around our house now that our pawrents’ grandson George is gone. George’s Dad took him back home on Friday. George’s Mom and Dad bought a new home in South Carolina, so I guess you could say they are all starting a happy, new life together. Keep your paws crossed. George had a wonderful time with us for the two months he was here. My sisters and I can tell our Mom misses him very much. George was her little helper around the house and believe it or not, us cats even began to enjoy his company. Well, maybe not me so much, but my sisters all liked being petted and brushed by George. I was never able to relax much around the little guy, but I did appreciate him at feeding time. MOL!

We are all doing fine. I had a recent trip to the vet for my usual urine and blood tests, and the results have remained the same. I still have a trace amount of blood in my urine, but everything else is good and the important thing is that I feel good. My weight has stayed the same. Our outside furry furiend Scamper is doing great too. He seems purrfectly happy catnapping during the day in his cathouse and the front yard. At night, he knows when it’s time for bed. He hears Mom call him and always runs into the garage so she can shut the door for the evening. Mom likes that so she knows he is safe at night. Scamper stills does not like being touched, but he does let Mom occasionally brush his fur.

We know our days on CC are numbered, so now we’ll start trying to get used to meowing at the Catmewsroom. We hope to see a lot of our furiends there!

Be sure to give your dear pawrents and the kitties hugs for us. We hope you are all doing well. We love your family always and furever!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
It’s sad to think that our meows on CC are coming to an end, but we take great solace in knowing that are furiendships will go on furever, where ever we may end up. Between the various cat websites, CC Survivor’s Group on FaceBook, purrsonal emails or just plain old fashion snail mail home addresses- however we need to stay in touch - we will.:) Before we forget to mention this, we have a page set up on http://catmewsroom.freeforums.net/, the Catmewsroom, and we also set up a page on YouPet.com (www.youpet.com/pet/184063). Of course now our Mom needs to learn how to navigate both sites! Mom’s email address is (amandrivas@sbcglobal.net), but most of you already know that.

We all have a strong feeling that once her grandson George goes back home with his pawrents, and our Mom and us no longer have our precious Cat Channel; well by golly, if that doesn’t make Mom learn how to use the mew websites fast, then nothing will. MOL! Right now our Mom has very little time for anything but her grandson. Humph! Okay, she is getting up extra early and staying up late to spend time with us cats, but that's a given, right?! MOL!

Little George is doing fine and so are all of us cats. We still have not warmed up to the little guy like Mom would have liked us to, but we do tolerate him. Hee, hee! George has the job of filling our dry cat food bowls every day and well, we can’t very well scratch the furless hand that feeds us. MOL! Our furiend Ebony, the black cat who lives next door with his fursis Sugar Bear, is the only one of us cats that has been brave enough to let George pet him and even sits in his lap to be brushed! Mom is sure that Ebony would make a wonderful Therapy Cat! The rest of us...not so much.:(

Scamper, our outside furiend, is doing great. He sleeps most of the day in his outside cathouse or in the garage. At night, Scamper knows when it is bedtime and he comes quickly inside the garage so Mom can shut the door. Scamper gets the garage and backyard at bedtime. Scamper still does not like to be touched or picked up, but Mom keeps on trying. Baby steps!

Mom kept up-to-date on copying our CC files once a month, so we have our memory books all set. We’re not going to meow goodbye because we are pawsitive our special furiendships will continue. With all the conflicts and unspeakable tragedies going on in the world recently, furiends like the ones we were lucky enough to make during our years on CC, are much too precious and valued to ever lose sight of.

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

HEY A.RHUBY & FUR SIBS!
OFF WITH YOUR SHORTS, KITTIES! TODAY WE ARE GOING TO PORTLAND, THE ROSE CITY, FOR THE 13TH ANNUAL PORTLAND NEKKED BIKE RIDE! SILLY AS IT
SOUNDS, IT'S A FACT! MOM SAW IT ABOUT 6 YRS AGO WITH HER OWN EYES WHEN SHE WAS IN PORTLAND AT A STOP LIGHT. ABOUT 50+ NEKKED BIKE RIDERS
WENT RIDING RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER CAR! SHE WAS ALL LIKE "WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ONE HERE"? BEING IN "KEEPING IT WEIRD" PORTLAND, DIDN'T COME
AS MUCH OF A SURPRISE TO HER. ON THE TV NEWS THAT NIGHT SHE SAW ALL ABOUT IT. IT STARTED IN 2004 WITH A VERY HEALTHY TURN OUT. ACTUALLY IT'S
A WORLD WIDE EVENT. ALL OVER THE GLOBE, BUT IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE, THEY HAVE THERES IN JANUARY WHEN IT'S SUMMER. I AM ATTACHING A LINK.
WARNING! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK AS IT SHOWS RIDERS NEKKED. NOTHING X-RATED ABOUT IT, BUT SOME OF YOU MAY BE SHY SO I CAN'T BE POSTING NAKKED
PIX ON MY GALLERY. EXCEPT FOR ONE FELLA IN FRONT OF THE KEEP PORTLAND WEIRD SIGN ACROSS FROM VOODOO DONUTS. THANK GOODNESS LILY'S MOM
PUT A MONKEY BUTT STICKER ON THE NEKKED GUYS BUTT. IT'S A PHOTO TAKEN FROM THE BACK SO ALL YOU'D SEE IF NOT FOR THE MONKEY BUTT STICKER, WOULD
BE A LITTLE PLUMBERS CRACK. IT'S ALL GOOD FUN AND THE CITIES ALLOW IT. SO CAN'T BE OFFENSIVE, BUT JUST TO BE SURE, I'M PUTTING THIS DISCLAMER TO
VIEW AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION:
http://www.worldnakedbikeride.org/
THOUSAND OF NEKKED BIKERS FLOCK TO PORTLAND FOR THE RIDE EVER JUNE ON THE LAST CATURDAY OF THE MONTH. IT'S A PROTEST THAT PROMOTES BIKE
RIDING AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO CARS. PORLTAND IS A BIG TIME BIKE CITY. THEY JUST APPROVED THE BORROW A BIKE. YOU CAN PICK UP A BIKE AT ONE PLACE
AND USE IT, DROPPING IT OFF AT ANOTHER FREE BIKE PLACE. WHAT A GREAT IDEA! I HEAR THIS IS BIG IN EUROPE. NOW YOU DON'T HAVE TO BEE NEKKED. YOU
CAN WEAR A THONG, SPEEDOS, BOARD SHORTS, G-STRING OR JUST REGULAR STREET CLOTHES. IT'S CLOTHING OPTIONAL. I CAN'T IMAGINE IT TO BE ALL THAT
COMFY, ESPECIALLY FOR YOU TOMS, SO MAYBE USE A SHEEPSKIN COVER FOR THE SEAT. THIS IS A BIG PAWTY AS WELL AS A PROTEST. THE NEKKED BIKE RACE
IS HELD IN MORE THAN 75 CITIES IN THE U.S. AS WELL AS 20 FOREING COUNTIES. IN 2014 PORTLAND HAD OVER 8000 NEKKED RIDERS. THE THEME OF THE RIDE
IS "BARE IF YOU DARE". AT LEAST IT'S COOL AND WILL BE A PLEASANT 74 WITH SUN & CLOUDS TOMORROW. NO STICKING TO THE BIKE SEATS. BUT WITH SHEEPSKIN
YOU WON'T STICK. THE TRUE WEIRDNESS THAT IS PORTLAND REALLY SHOWS ITSELF OFF ON THIS DAY! EVEN THE PO-PO COME OUT TO DIRECT THE BIKERS AND THEY
CLOSE OFF THE STREETS TO CARS. THEY EVEN STOP AND SCMOOZE WITH THE RIDERS. SOMETIMES THERE IS EVEN A MARCHING BAND! THE RIDE HAS BEEN INCREASING
IN RIDERS BY 50% WITH EACH PASSING YEAR! SO SETTLE ON THE SHEEPSKIN, BARE IF YOU DARE AND RIDE LIKE THE WIND!
WE HAVE A BIRTHDAY BOY TODAY....ROCKY #259343.......CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR COTD QA KUCE! MOONPIE TODAY IS LEMON MERINGUE. MOON TOON IS "BIKE RIDE TO THE
MOON" BY XTC! HAPPY RIDING! LUVYA K.A.ELMIE

HEY A.RHUBY & FUR SIBS!
NIN HAO! THIS IS "HELLO" IN CANTONESE! MY MOM ALWAYS SAID THAT US CATS WHEN WE ARE IN OUR LITTER BOXES, DIGGING...DIGGING, THAT WE ARE
DIGGING OUR WAY TO CHINA! WELL, HERE WE ARE, AND SINCE WE ARRIVED YESTERDAY, WHAT BETTER IDEA THAN TO STICK AROUND FOR A FEW DAYS EXPLORING
ALL THE WONDERFUL THINGS CHINA HAS TO OFFER! FIRST STOP TODAY IS THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA! BE SURE TO HAVE YOUR COMFY SHOES ON TODAY AS
IT'S ONE LONG WALK! THE WALL IS ALSO CALLED "WANLI CHANGCHENG" OR LONG WALL. FUN FACTS A'COMING! IT WAS BUILT IN SECTIONS BY DIFFERENT DYNASTIES,
NOT ONE CONTINUOUS WORK AS THE MYTHS HAVE IT. DURING CONSTRUCTION IT WAS CALLED THE LONGEST CEMETARY ON EARTH, SINCE SO MANY DIED BUILDING
IT. THE MAIN WALL IS 2145 MILES LONG BUT HAS OFF-SHOOTS. IT'S THE LONGEST MAN-MADE STRUCTURE IN THE WORLD. THE MOST VISITED SECTION IS CLOSE TO
BEIJING, THAT PART WAS BUILT DURING THE MING DYNASTY. IT WAS BUILT AS A WAY TO KEEP THE ENEMY COUNTRIES FROM INVADING.THE ENTIRE WALL IN ALL
ITS SECTIONS IS A WHOPPIN' 31,071 MILES LONG! RUMOR HAS IT THAT THE GREAT WALL CAN BE SEEN FROM THE MOON. LET'S ASK NEIL ARMSTRONG! THE MORTAR
USED TO BIND THE THE STONES WAS RICE FLOUR. THEY HAVE TONS OF RICE PADDIES. NO WONDER YOU ALWAYS GET STICKY OR FRIED RICE WITH EVERY MEAL!
THE WALL ATTRACTS ABOUT 50 MILLION VISITORS A YEAR. THE FIRST WALL SECTION WAS BUILT IN 260-210 B.C. BY THE QIN DYNASTY! LATER DYNASTIES WERE THE
HAN, SUI, JIN & MING. SPEAKING OF THE MING DYNASTY, THEY MADE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CERAMIC VASES! THEY WERE MILKY WHITE AND COBALT BLUE. THE MING DYNASTY RULED FROM 1368-1644. MING ISN'T A FAMILY NAME BUT AN APPELLATION, MEANING "BRIGHT". I DO BELIEVE I SAW A REALLY COOL STORE CARRYING LOTSA
MING PRODUCTS. SHALL WE GO SHOPPING? HOPE Y'ALL BROUGHT LOTSA YENS WITH YOU. NO BULLS ARE ALLOWED IN THE CHINA SHOP!

ALSO VERY POPULAR & INDIGENOUS TO CHINA IS THE GIANT PANDA! HOW CAN YOU NOT SAY AWWWWW TO THEM? THE BABIES ARE SO ADORABLE THAT IM SURE
YOU'LL ALL WANNA TAKE ONE HOME, BUT SORRY TO SAY, NO CAN DO! THE PANDA IS ALSO CALLED THE BLACK & WHITE CAT FOOT, OR THE BIG BEAR CAT! THEY
LOVE TO MUNCH ON BAMBOO. THEY ARE ALSO CARNIVORES IF IT'S ON THE MENU. IN CAPTIVITY THE MENU HAS YAMS, BANANAS, HONEY, ORANGES & FISH.
THEY HAVE THUMBS AND CAN LIVE 20-30 YEARS. I THINK THEY'VE INVITED US OVER TODAY FOR SOME GREEN BAMBOO TEA WITH HONEY! LET'S TAKE THEM A BAG
OF FRUIT, SHALL WE? I'M NOT SURE IF THEY CAN EAT CHINESE TAKE-OUT BUT IF THEY CAN'T, WE WILL. WE HAVE SO MUCH TO DO HERE IN CHINA THE NEXT COUPLE
OF DAYS. DID YOU KNOW THAT ICE CREME WAS INVENTED IN CHINA IN 2000 B.C. IT WAS SOFT MILK & RICE MIXED IN WITH SNOW. WE CAN ALSO GO VISIT THE GREAT BUDDHA. GREATHEY EVEN HAVE CAT BUDDHAS! THEY'RE IN MY PHOTO GALLERY!
BIRTHDAYS TODAY: Q.A.KUCE #7387 AND A.SPHYNX #14551 (SAME FAMILY). CROSSAVERSARY....A.GYPSY #114577. CONGRATS TO COTDS ECHO & FRANCIS~~~

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Long time no meow! We sure do miss our CC furiends, but we keep all of you in our thoughts and prayers. My sisters and I are doing fine, getting used to having the little furless around each day. Little George has gotten really good at helping our Mom feed us and because of that he is earning our trust. George even got to pet Callie one day, but it didn’t last too long. George got real excited and let out a happy scream! MOL! Needless to say, Callie took off like a shot! But all four of us cats have been coming down to sit on the staircase and watch the fun.

Our pawrents are having a great time with their grandson, always trying to take him somewhere new each day. George likes to end each day with an hour at the playground. It’s close by our house and Mom is always amazed at the amount of energy the little guy still has at the end of the day. It reminds me of my kitten days! Hee, hee!

Our Mom and George will be taking a short trip to San Diego this Wednesday, staying for a few days at GM”S house. Our Mom’s sister Doris, who lives with GM, is having some health problems, so Mom needs to find out what is going on and to make sure GM is okay. George will get to meet his great-grandma and all of Mom’s family. Should be a great experience for George!

Our Dad will be staying here in San Jose to take care of us, with my help of course. The weather just started to turn hot, like the rest of the country, so we’ll all be staying inside with our Dad and the A/C blasting. Our outside furiend Scamper is doing great. He’s been staying close to home during the day and Scamper is now used to being locked up in the garage and backyard at night. Mom has the garage set up nicely with oscillating fans and air circulators to keep the garage comfortable and safe for Scamper.

We hope you are all doing okay, staying as cool as you can during the recent heat wave. We’ll meow at you when Mom and George get back from their trip.

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

HEY A.RHUBY & FUR SIBS!
WELL, BOYS & GIRLS! IT'S THAT TIME OF MONTH ONCE AGAIN. IT'S THE FULL STRAWBERRY MOON WHICH IS SHARING THE DAY WITH THE SUMMER SOLTICE. THAT
DOESN'T HAPPEN OFTEN. THIS WILL BE THE FIRST TIME IN ALMOST 50 YEARS! THE LAST TIME WAS JUNE 1967. WOW, THIS DAY WILL BE SOMETHING SPECIAL. WHY
THE STRAWBERRY MOON, YOU MAY ASK? A FEW REASONS. THE ALGONQUIN INDIANS KNEW THAT IT SIGNIFIED THAT FRUIT, ESPECIALLY STRAWBERRIES, WOULD BE
RIPE FOR THE PICKIN'. ALSO CALLED THE ROSE MOON, THE HOT MOON & THE HONEY MOON. IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE IT'S THE LONG NIGHT MOON. MAKES
SENSE, RIGHT? AFTER THIS WE'LL HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER 46 YEARS TO SEE THIS AGAIN. JUNE 21, 2062. OUR NEXT FULL MOON PAWTY HERE ON THE PINTO WILL BE
JULY 19TH. IT'LL BE THE FULL BUCK MOON. IN 2014 THE JUNE STRAWBERRY MOON WAS VERY RARE IN THAT IT FELL ON A FRIDAY THE 13TH. PREVIOUSLY IT HAPPENED IN 1919 & NEXT TIME ON FRIDAY THE 13TH 2098! GEE, WONDER IF ANY OF US WILL STILL BE HERE TO SEE IT? I HAVE TO BELIEVE WE WILL AS US CATS ARE IMMORTAL.
NOW THIS MEANS OUR PAWTY CATIO WILL BE DECKED OUT IN STRAWBERRY PRINT LINEN TABLECLOTHES WHICH AQ GRACIE & LILY WILL DO. ALONG WITH THE
CENTERPIECE OF STRAWBERRIES AND FLOWERS. THE SNACK BOWLS WILL HAVE CAT SHAPED STRAWBERRIES! THESE PIX ARE IN MY GALLERY. MY MOM ACTUALLY
HAD THE VERY SAME STRAWBERRY TABLE CLOTH IN THERE. THEY WERE VERY POPULAR IN THE 50'S. MOM WOULD PICK THEM UP YEARS LATER AT THE THRIFT
STORES. VERY KITCSHY I HAVE TO SAY! WE WILL BE HAVING COLD STRAWBERRY SOUP. SORTA LIKE SEVICHE BUT NOT FISHY. OH SO SWEET! AND STRAWBERRY
JELLO MOLD WITH SOUR CREME IN THE MIDDLE. STRAWBERRY GREEN SALADS. STRAWBERRY STEAK, STRAWBERRIES WITH AVACADO, STRAWBERRY MOONPIES.
STRAWBERRY ICE CREME,STRAWBERRY MILKSHAKES. STRAWBERRY TACOS. SPONGIE WILL BE SHIMMYING UP THE COCONUT TREES TO STRING TWINKLY STRAWBERRY PATIO LIGHTS, WHILE A.MALLOW HELPS HIM OUT BY FLYING THEM UP TO HIM. OUR BEACH WILL BE COLORED WITH STRAWBERRY JUICE TO MAKE THE SAND PINK!

BUT WHAT'S A STRAWBERRY WITHOUT A BANANA? WE'LL BE GOING INTO THE JUNGLE TO "BORROW" SOME BANANAS. WE'LL HAVE GAMES LIKE STRAWBERRY BEER PONG, PIN THE STEM ON THE STRAWBERRY. HERE WE GO 'ROUND THE STRAWBERRY BUSH. THE STRAWBERRY MOONPIE TOSS, PIES IN THE FACE, STRAWBERRY SHADES FOR EVERYONE, STRAWBERRY BONNETS FOR THE GALS & STRAWBERRY FEDORA FOR THE GUYS. THE LITTLE ONES MIGHT WANNA DRESS UP LIKE STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE! WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN &THE FULL MOON COMES UP, SQUEEVE/STEVE WILL BE SERVING STRAWBERRY DAQUIRIS FROM IS FLOATING TIKI BAR. ON ANOTHER NOTE, I SAW A FEW SUGGESTIIONS THAT ME, K.A.ELMIE & MY BEAUTIFUL WIFE, Q.A.POUNCER SHOULD BE CROWNED THE RC COLA & MOONPIE KING & QUEEN! WE SURE THANK YOU FROM THE COCKLES OF OUR HEARTS & WE HAPPILY ACCEPT! THANK YOU EVERYONE! OUR CROSSAVERSARY TODAY IS ANGEL BOCIFOUS #85530........CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR COTD
MOONPIE IS STRAWBERRY GANACHE MOONPIE. MOON TOON IS "STRAWBERRY MOON" BY NEPTUNES CAR. HAVE A "BERRY" FUN DAY! LUVYA K.A.ELMIE

HEY A.RHUBY & FUR SIBS!
MEANWHILE BACK AT THE PINTO COUNTY FAIR.....WE ARE HAVING OUR VERSION OF CONEY ISLANDS 4TH O'JULY HOT DOG EATING CONTEST! SPONSORED
BY NATHANS FAMOUS HOTDOGS, IT WAS FIRST STARTED BACK ON JULY 4TH 1919. 4 IMMIGRANTS WERE ARGUING WHO WAS THE MOST PATRIOTIC SO THEY
DEVISED A PLAN TO HE WHO ATE THE MOST IS THE MOST PATRIOTIC. JIM MULLEN WON. I'LL BETCHA HE WAN AN IRISHMAN! USUALLY JOEY "JAWS" CHESTNUT
WINS BUT NOT LAST TIME. IT WAS MATT STONIE. IN THE WOMENS DIVISION THE REIGNING CHAMP IS A LITTLE BITTY 5 FT 100 LB GIRL, SONYA "THE BLACK WIDOW"
THOMAS. MATT ATE 62 DOGS IN 10 MINUTES! TUMS ANYONE? THE WINNER GETS A BLINGED OUT YELLOW MUSTARD BELT. SONYA THE BLACK WIDOW GOT A PINK
ONE.THE BEST WAY TO WIN IS JUST SWALLOW THE DOG WHOLE, THEN SOAK THE BUN IN WATER AND CRAM IT IN AND SWALLOW. IM SURPRISED THESE GUYS CAN
WALK OFF THE STAGE! AFTER THAT WE'LL HAVE THE HOT DOG RACES. NO, NOT THE NATHANS HOG DOGS, BUT REAL LIVE DACHSHUNDS WEARING A BUN JACKET
AND RUNNING TOWARDS BIG BOTTLES OF HEINZ CATSUP & MUSTARD! IT'S A HOOT. I FOUND A YOUTUBE OF IT, SO AM ATTACHING IT.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNN9nL2vppM
GEE. HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THOSE LITTLE SHORT LEGS RUN SO FAST? I WONDER IF US KITTIES COULD HAVE A "COOL CAT RACE" RUNNING TOWARDS THE
GOOD HUMOR MAN AND HIS TRUCK! WOULD WE HAVE TO WEAR ICE CREME CONE JACKETS? EITHER WAY, WE LOOK TOTALLY COOL ALWAYS! ANY TAKERS?
WHEN WE'RE DONE WITH THAT, IT'LL BE TIME FOR THE PIE EATIN' CONTEST. NO COUNTY FAIR WOULD BE COMPLETE WITHOUT ONE. WE HAVE BERRY & CHERRY
PIES, CREME PIES LIKE BANANA, COCONUT, CHOCOLATE, BUTTERSCOTCH. TAKE YOUR PICK. YOU GOTTA HAVE YOUR PAWS BEHIND YOU, PUT YOUR FACE DOWN
RIGHT IN THE PIE PAN, START EATING LIKE THERE'S NO TOMORROW! THIS ISN'T REALLY HOW MUCH YOU CAN EAT, BUT WHO GETS THE GNARLIEST, STICKIEST,
MESSIEST & MOST CATTITUDE. THE WINNER WILL GET THE GOLDEN MOONPIE BELT! IF IT EVEN FITS AFTER THAT. THERE ARE SO MANY OTHER COMPETITIVE
EATING FOODS LIKE CHICKEN WINGS, SHRIMP, PICKLED EGGS, OYSTERS, DONUTS, ICE CREME, MEATBALLS, BURRITOS, TACOS AND MUCH MUCH MORE. MY
FAVORITE BY FAR IS THE MOON PIE COMPETITION! THE WINNER GETS THE GOLDEN MOONPIE BELT COMPLETE WITH A YEARS WORTH OF MOONPIES. THIS IS A
FINE WARM DAY FOR EATING AS MUCH AS WE WANT. SO MAYBE TOMORROW NONE OF US WILL BE ABLE TO SEE OUR FEET OR STAND UP, WE'LL ENJOY IT TO
THE MAX TODAY!

REGISTER IN JANUARY TO BE IN IT. YOU GOTTA PICK UP YOUR PACKETS BETWEEN 5:45 & 6:45 BEFORE THE RACE. THE RACE ITSELF STARTS AT 7AM SHARP! BE THERE
OUR BE SQUARE. OR ROUND, LIKE A MOONPIE! HERE'S A LINK TO THE DEETS ABOUT THE RACE.
21st Annual RC Cola - MoonPie 10 Mile Run
A DAY OF FAMILY FUN FEATURING A CRAFT FAIR, CARNIVAL, LIVE MUSIC, GAMES,THE WORLDS LARGEST MOONPIE, THE MOONPIE TOSS, THE CROWNING OF KING & QUEEN MOONPIE, A PARADE, SYNCHRONIZED WADING EVENT & MUCH MUCH MORE! WE WILL TAKE THE DAY OFF FROM OUR OWN PINTO COUNTY FAIR, UNLESS YOU
WANNA STAY THERE. I'LL RESUME MY FUN BLOG FOR OUR FAIR ON SUNDAY. THIS RC COLA/MOONPIE IS JUST ONCE A YEAR, WAY TOO MUCH FUN TO PASS UP. THIS
FESTIVAL IS A SOUTHERN FESTIVAL BUT YOU DONT HAVE TO BE SOUTHERN TO JOIN IN. JUST MAYBE DRAWL A BIT IF YOU'RE A YANKEE. BELT BUCKLE TN IS A LOVELY
LITTLE TOWN IN THE ROLLING HILLS. IT'S VERY TINY & A HISTORICAL VICTORIAN VILLAGE. OH YEAH, THERE IS ALSO CLOG DANCING, SO BREAK OUT THOSE CLOGS!
THE CORONATION WILL BE AT NOONTIME SHARP! GEE WHO SHALL WE HAVE AS OUR PINTO MOONPIE KING AND QUEEN? I'M OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS! AFTER THE
CORONATION WILL BE THE CUTTING OF THE WORLD BIGGEST MOONPIE. FREE DESSERT FOR ALL!

IT'S A SOUTHERN TRADITION THAT IF YOU HAVE A MOONPIE, YOU MUST HAVE AN RC COLA! AFTER MY MOM GREW UP IN SO.CAL EATING MOONPIES, SHE NEVER
KNEW ANY OF THIS EXISTED. THEN MOVING UP HERE AND NOT SEEING MOONPIES FOR YEAR, SHE GOT A HANKERING FOR SOME BUT NONE TO BE FOUND. SINCE
IT'S A SOUTHERN SNACK, YOU CAN ONLY GET 'EM IN THE SOUTH. NO PROBLEM, MOM JUST ORDERED BOXES OF THEM ONLINE IN DIFFERENT FLAVORS & EVEN SENT
BOXES OF A DOZEN TO A BUNCH OF OUR CC FRIENDS A FEW YEARS AGO! WE GOT LEMON, ORANGE, STRAWBERRY, SALTED CARMEL MINI, COCONUT MINI (AVAILABLE
ONLY DURING MARDI GRAS). ONE OF OUR CC FRIENDS MOM SENT MOM SOME COCONUT ONE. NOT LIKE THE REGULAR MOONPIE BUT IN A LITTLE TIN, LIKE THOSE
MINI PECAN PIES YOU GET. THAT WAS EDDIE & ELI'S MOM JOANN. THAT WAS AWFULLY NICE OF HER. WE ALSO HAVE CHOCOLATE & VANILLA IN OUR KITCHEN PANTRY.
MOM WISHES SHE COULD HAVE ALL THE FUN FLAVORS WE ALL GET EVERY DAY!

HEY A.RHUBY & FUR SIBS!
HEY LITTLE BUCKAROOS! WE ARE STILL AT THE PINTO COUNTY FAIR & WILL STAY HERE FOR AWHILE! THERE IS WAY TOO MUCH FUN STUFF TO PUT IN ONE DAYS
BLOG THAT I MUST KEEP US HERE! TODAY WE ARE GONNA GO TO THE RODEO! YEEEHAAAW! THE RODEO ORIGINATED IN SPAIN & MEXICO BUT ARE EVERYWHERE
NOW. THE MOST FAMOUS IS THE ALBERTA RODEO IN EDMONTON, AB, CANADA! IT'S THE GRANDDADDY OF ALL RODEOS! THE WORD "RODEO" COMES FROM SPANISH
WORD MEANING "ROUND UP". THEY HAVE BOTH WOMENS & MENS EVENTS, WHICH WE'LL SEE BOTH TODAY. THE "VAQUEROS (COWBOYS) HAVE THEIR LARIETS
(LASSOS), CHASING THE CALVES AROUND & LOOPING THE LARIET AROUND THEIR HEADS, THEN HOG TYING THEM UP. WE WILL ALSO SEE THE BUCKIN' BRONCO
RIDERS TRYING TO HANG ON FOR DEAR LIFE! THE VAQUREOS WEAR THEIR PINTO PRINT COWHIDE CHAPS, MATCHING VEST & 10 GALLON HATS WHICH THEY HOLD
UP HIGH IN THE AIR WITH ONE PAW! YIPPEEKAYEE! NEXT IT'S OFF TO THE PIG RACES. THESE LITTLE BACONATORS RUN AROUND A DIRT, FAKE GRASS OR GRAVEL
TRACK. THEY HAVE THICK HOOVES SO THEY DON'T GET HURTY PAWS. PIGS HAVE PAWS??? A COUPLE FUN FACTS ABOUT PIGS. THERE ARE 10 VARIETIES. THEY ARE
THE MOST POPULOUS MAMMELS ON EARTH AT ABOUT A BILLIOIN! A PIG MAY GET AS CHUBBY AS 700 LB! THAT'S A LOTTA BACON! THE YEAR OF THE PIG IS IN THE
CHINESE NEW YEAR CALENDAR. SWEAT LIKE A PIG IS A FUN FACT MYTH! PIGS DON'T EVEN SWEAT. THE MOST FAMOUS OINKERS ARE PORKY PIG, PIGLET OF WINNIE
THE POOH FAME, MISS PIGGY, BABE THE SHEEP-PIG, PORKY PIG & NAPOLEON FROM "ANIMAL FARM". MAMA PIGS SING TO THEIR NEWBORNS. THEY ARE CLEAN &
LIKE US, THEY DREAM! THEY ARE SMARTER THAN A 3 YR OLD CHILD. THEY ARE OPTIMISTS & DON'T REALLY EAT LIKE PIGS.

WE WILL NOW GO VISIT THE 4H ANIMALS & SEE WHO WINS THE BLUE RIBBONS. THE 4H'S STAND FOR HEAD, HEART, HANDS & HEALTH. THE 4 LEAF CLOVER IS FOR
GOOD LUCK & ACHIEVEMENT. THEIR MOTTO IS: TO MAKE THE BEST BETTER! THEIR SLOGAN: LEARN BY DOING. A SMART BUNCH. THEY WERE FOUNDED IN 1902
FOR KIDS TO LEARN HOW TO BECOME GOOD ADULTS. YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A YOUNGIN' TO VOLUNTER, BIG FOLKS CAN DO IT! IT'S GOOD FOR OUR KHARMA &
MAKES US FEEL GOOD ABOUT OURSELVES TO BE A VOLUNTEER. NOW WHAT SAY WE TAKE A COUPLE OF NON-CAT CRITTERS OVER TO THE FOOD BOOTHS FOR
SOME FRIED NOMMIES? ROCKY RACCOON & FLOWER THE SKUNK ARE COMING WITH US! SEE THEIR PIC IN MY GALLERY!
