Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
We're glad to hear Finster is eating. Don't let Percey steal his food!

Callie and I went for our walk with Mom this morning in our cat stroller and we saw our yippy/yappy doggie furiend. Him and his human pass by us very quickly on the trail now. I guess they don’t like cats in a stroller. MOL!

Ebony and Sugar Bear spent the night again in the backyard. It was easy for Mom to coax them into the backyard through the garage. Once they hear the can of cat food opening, they run right in.

Sorry for the rush, but that Mom of mine is running late today. I’ll try to get her back on schedule tomorrow.:)

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

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
Callie and I got to spend most of the day yesterday enjoying our backyard. We checked out all the strange cat smells, and they were everywhere! It took a while for Callie and me to finally settle down. Mom always makes us come in at night though, so when she shooed us inside, she opened the garage door to feed our outside fursibs, Ebony and Sugar Bear. They were in the front yard lying down and came running. But this time, Mom opened the small garage door that leads to the backyard to see if the two cats would follow her. As soon as they heard the can of cat food pop open, they came running. Hooray! Mom shut them in the backyard and sat with them while they ate. Both cats seemed perfectly happy staying the night in the backyard. This just might work.

It’s another sunny day in the low 80’s today. Callie and I are out on the deck, Whitey and Orangie are in the window and Ebony and Sugar Bear are sleeping on top of their new cathouse in the front yard. A nice relaxing Sunday!

We always hide when we have company too. Yogi and Rosie are awfully brave!

We left a vote with soft purrs, hugs and prayers and something to make you laugh or groan. :)

The Cat and the Birds (Aesop’s Cat Fable)
~~~~~
Hearing that the Birds in an aviary were ill, a Cat went to them and said that he was a physician, and would cure them if they would let him in.

"To what school of medicine do you belong?" asked the Birds.

"I am a Miaulopathist," said the Cat.

"Did you ever practice Gohomoeopathy?" the Birds inquired, winking faintly.

The Cat took the hint and his leave. =^.^=

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
There’s not too much going on here today except grocery shopping and more house cleaning. That’s okay, because I wanted to share a cute story my Mom read to us. We hope you have a wonderful day.

Tell Percey and Rosie to play nice. We have Finster in our prayers every night.

Why Cats Have Fur =^.^=
~~~~~
In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the Earth. On the fifth day he created the cat but, unlike today, the cat was without fur.

This was fine for awhile; it was cool in the summer and easy to keep clean. Plus there were no problem with hair balls.

After a while, other animals with fur started to tease this hairless creature. They would sing, "Ha, ha, the hairless cat, the hairless cat is ugly and fat!"

"Oh how beautiful the other animals are with their colorful coats of fur," thought the hairless cat.

But soon the cat forgot the taunts and was proud again, for it was beautiful in its own way.

Then winter came and it got cold. The cat tried to keep warm; he curled up under bushes and with other animals, but was not as warm as his friends.

When the cat tried to find warm places to stay, he was never able to get comfortable and was always getting bumps and scratches.

One cold night as the cat was curled up under a bush and staring at the sky, a rabbit came by.

"Why are you so sad, cat?" asked the bunny.

"I have no fur and I am ugly and cold." replied the cat.

The rabbit cuddled next to the cat and whispered to him in his ears, "If you wish on a shooting star, and believe, your wish can come true."

Just about that time a star glimmered across the sky and the cat knew what to do. The cat closed his eyes tightly and said, "I wish, I wish I had fur and also all other cats of the world had beautiful coats of fur like other animals."

The cat opened his eyes just in time to see the star vanish behind the moon.

A few seconds later the moon began to glow as brightly as the sun and cats all over the world came out of hiding to see the bright light. As the light faded, fur began to grow on the cat. Within minutes the cat and all other cats had beautiful coats of fur. Some long, some short, and of different colors. From then on, the cat was not teased or cold. And the fur also protected the cat from injuries.

This is why cats have fur.

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
My Mom let our outside fursibs, Ebony & Sugar Bear, out of the backyard this morning and they were very happy. Sugar Bear was running and playing in the front yard because that’s where all the birds in the trees like to hang out. Ebony sat on the driveway for a while and then he hopped on top of the new cathouse to lie down. Mom was very happy. Today she is leaving the main garage door open and the small door in the garage open that leads to the backyard, so she can practice chasing them into the backyard. Mom just wants them to remember it’s a safe place. Of course, Callie and I still can’t go into the backyard while all the doors are open, but we know we’ll be able to soon.

We did get a light drizzle of rain yesterday, but today the sun is back out and it’s kind of humid. Callie and I are catnapping in the bay windows and Whitey & Orangie are getting their beauty sleep in the upstairs bedroom window. It’s a quiet Friday here. Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
My Mom was able to get Ebony into his carrier and take him to the vet today. Ebony didn’t put up a fight at the vet like last time. He growled a little, but that was it! Mom held him on the exam table while he got the rest of his shots and the vet was able to run her hands over his body to feel for any abnormalities. Ebony’s blood work came back good too. Ebony is a healthy cat! My Mom is going to keep him and Sugar Bear in the backyard for another day so they can relax after a hectic day.

I’m running late with my blogs, so I’ll meow at you again tomorrow. We hope and pray Finster starts gaining weight.

How Pussy Willows Got their Name
~~~~~
Many springtimes ago, according to an old Polish legend, tiny kittens had been chasing butterflies at the river's edge and fell in. The mother cat, helpless to save them, started crying. The willows at the river's edge swept their long graceful branches into the water - the kittens gripped on tightly to the branches and were rescued.

Each springtime since, goes the legend, willow branches sprout tiny fur-like buds where the tiny kittens once clung. =^.^=

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
Ah, thanks for sending some of your magic angel dust for my Mom and Ebony. You're the best! We have our paws crossed that Rosie and Percey settle down soon. They will. Your house is filled with a lot of love and patience!

My Mom took Callie and me for our walk this morning and we spotted two deer running through the brush. It was so nice to know they are still around. Mom always fills up the bucket by the empty creek with water and it’s always empty. So maybe the deer are drinking it!

We are actually expected to get some rain tomorrow! Whoo hoo! Only about ¼ of an inch, but we’ll take whatever we can get. My Mom is all set to take Ebony to the vet in the morning. Ebony is back to letting Mom pet him and last night he even purred while she combed his fur. Ebony really likes canned tuna, so Mom is going to use that to hopefully get him into the cat carrier without a fuss.

Whitey and Orangie are doing fine, catnapping in the upstairs bedroom window since it’s not too warm today.

Why Don't Cats Wash Before They Eat?
~~~~~
As legend goes, the cat once caught a mouse and was about to eat the tasty little morsel when the mouse chided the cat for her bad manners. "What?" cried the mouse, "You're going to eat me without first washing your face and hands?"

The mortified cat immediately dropped the mouse and began washing, and the clever little mouse quickly ran away.

Ever since, cats have not washed up before dinner. =^.^=

Hi ANgel Rhuby & family!
We’re expecting a day with temps in the 80’s, but this morning when our Mom took Callie and me for a walk in our cat stroller, it was actually a little chilly outside. Could autumn be on the way? We sure hope that means rain sometime soon.

My Mom put new kitty litter in all our boxes and she washed and fluff dried all our blankets and bed covers. Ummm, it feels nice to roll in the laundry basket right out of the dryer.

Our outside fursibs Ebony and Sugar Bear are doing fine. My Mom is going to try to get Ebony to the vet on Thursday. Ebony seems to have forgiven Mom for now. Now Mom just needs to stay calm and not scare Ebony with her nervous vibes. MOL! Callie and I can always tell when our Mom is going to try something we don’t want. We can read her like a book. Let’s hope Ebony can’t. Keep your paws crossed.:)

How To Check The Weather Forecast
~~~~~
To tell the weather, go to your back door and look for the dog.

If the dog is at the door and he is wet, it's probably raining. But if the dog is standing there really soaking wet, it is probably raining really hard.

If the dog's fur looks like it's been rubbed the wrong way, it's probably windy.

If the dog has snow on his back, it's probably snowing.

Of course, to be able to tell the weather like this, you have to leave the dog outside all the time, especially if you expect bad weather.

Sincerely, The CAT =^.^=

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
Rosie and Percey sound a lot like Callie and Whitey. I think it's just going to take some time. Callie and Whitey can pass each other in the hallway now with just growls. Before, they couldn't even pass by each other without lashing out. We'll keep our paws crossed for Percey and Rosie.

The vacuum monster was let loose again today, so we’ve all been hiding out in the bedroom under the bed, until the monster comes in here. Then it’s every cat for himself. MOL!

The temperature outside has cooled off to the mid-eighties. Our outside fursibs, Ebony and Sugar are still in our backyard. My Mom needs to take Ebony back to see the vet sometime this week. She’s not looking forward to it, but Ebony is back to rubbing against her legs, so it looks promising.

"Cats are less loyal than dogs, but more independent." (This is code. It means: "Cats are smarter than dogs, but they hate people.") Many people love cats. From time to time, newspapers print stories about some elderly widow who died and left her entire estate, valued at $3,200,000, to her cat, Fluffkins. Cats read these stories, too, and are always plotting to get named as beneficiaries in their owners' wills. Did you ever wonder where your cat goes when it wanders off for several hours? It meets with other cats in estate-planning seminars. I just thought you should know. =^.^=

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
It’s a quiet Sunday here today. My pawrents went to the memorial service for their friend yesterday and they told us it was sad, but beautiful. We were all very good cats while they were gone. Even Ebony and Sugar Bear were lying on top of the doghouse in the backyard, sound asleep when they got home.

We hope you have a relaxing Sunday with your family.

Not only is there always another good animal
in need of a good home,
but we must remember to be thankful
for the time and love our animals give us
while they are here.
Take time to enjoy them and learn from them.
As painful as it is to lose them,
they teach us to love unselfishly,
they teach us to live each day to the fullest,
they teach us to grow old gracefully,
and they teach us to die with dignity.
We do them disrespect
to focus only on the sorrow of their death
when they have given us so much joy through their life.
If we wish to honor them,
take what they have given us,
all that love,
and give it back to another animal
in need of help.

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
Oh dear Angel Rhuby! That must have been horrific for your Mom being so close to the Twin Towers. God bless your family dear furiend. Give your Mom a big hug for us.

We won’t be online tomorrow on Saturday. My pawrents are going to a memorial service for a friend who recently passed away. We’ll be back on Sunday.

We are having another heat wave with temps in the 90’s. It should start to cool off after today. My Mom made sure our outside fursibs Ebony and Sugar Bear have plenty of shade and cool water while they’re staying in the backyard. Ebony is just starting to forgive my Mom after his trip to the vet. Mom sits outside with them a lot. Ebony laid down by my Mom’s feet last night, just like he always used to.:)

I believe that the loss of a beloved companion animal
is like no other loss
because our relationships with animals are like no other.
Our culture tells us that an animal companion is an engaging toy,
and that our grief over its death is alarming and ill-paced.
And our culture is just flat wrong.
As a survivor of advanced cancer myself,
I believe that the love and comfort of animals
in great measure graced me with recovery.
This being the case,
I would not be one to take kindly
to any cultural diminishment of our relationship with 'the other.'
Bluntly put, 'Them's fightin' words' in my world.
Animals are more to us than we know.
Their partnership with us is a holy one
that endures across a lifetime
and possibly beyond. =^.^=

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
I know I may make light of our canine furiends from time to time, but it’s all in good fun and I respectfully share with you a small tribute to our furry furiends.

In memory of the animals we lost that tragic day, September 11, 2001, as well as the animals who lost their owners. All are furever in our hearts. ♥

The Few, The Proud......The Dogs of 9/11
~~~~~
A quote from a ground zero witness:

“Urban Search and Rescue dogs that were deployed at Ground Zero included Australian shepherds, German shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Labradors, Border Collies, Portuguese Water Dogs, Belgian Malinois, Giant Schnauzers, and even Rat Terriers. What a dog could do with its nose was invaluable in the search. What a dog could do with its heart was equally invaluable.”

The dogs were able to lift the spirits of stressed workers. Cops and firemen, as well as the handlers, took great comfort from the dogs at a time when they battled exhaustion, despair, and stress. One account states: “It was beyond amazing what a licking tongue could do to lift a crushed human spirit, restoring morale to discouraged and depressed workers at Ground Zero”
~~~~~
Most of these wonderful dogs are gone now, but a few are still with us today as we pause to remember all the victims, and all the heroes of September 11, 2001. Never has man had a truer, finer friend than a dog. Today we offer them the honor and respect they deserve. Friends. Warriors. Rescuers. God bless them all, and a prayer of thanksgiving to Him for gifting us with such wonderful creatures.

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
Today was Petco Day and our Mom came home with everything on our list. She bought a couple of bags of some new Temptations called “Tumblers.” The bag says, “Now you can roll, toss or bounce delicious treats for your cats!” I don’t know about all of that, but we had fun eating them! Mom also got some catnip cat toys, mainly for our outside fursibs, but we got some too. Sugar Bear really loves doing the bunny-kick with her Cosmic Catnip Banana. Ebony is still aloof towards Mom after the trip to the vet, but he is slowing getting closer to her again when she sits out in the backyard with them.

What would I do without you,
My precious, furry friend?
Part mischief, but all blessing,
And faithful to the end!
You look at me with eyes of love;
You never hold a grudge . . .
You think I'm far too wonderful
To criticize or judge.
It seems your greatest joy in life
Is being close to me . . .
I think God knew how comforting
Your warm, soft fur would be.
I know you think you're human,
But I'm glad it isn't true . . .
The world would be a nicer place
If folks were more like you!
A few short years are all we have;
One day we'll have to part . . .
But you, my pet, will always have
A place within my heart.

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
Callie and I were out for our stroller walk with Mom this morning. We still take water to fill up the always empty bucket by the dried up creek, but we haven’t seen any deer in a long time. The walking trail is usually deserted in the morning, but the past few days we’ve been passing a lady walking her small dog that likes to yip and yap at us. The lady scolded her dog for barking at a baby stroller, so Mom had to tell her it’s a cat stroller carrying two big cats. MOL! Now the lady and her doggie run by us. Mom has a good laugh when we see them!

Today the vacuum monster is let loose. We got a reprieve from it yesterday cuz Mom was too busy with the outside cats. So today we are all hiding out together. Whitey and Orangie are doing fine. Callie still doesn’t like them much, but Callie can pass them on the stairs without growling too much. And of course when the vacuum monster is out, we are all united as one under the bed. MOL!

Our outside fursibs are doing okay in the backyard. Ebony is still mad at Mom for taking him to the vet yesterday, but late last night before we went to bed, Ebony took a Temptation treat from Mom’s hand. Baby steps!

There must be a heaven
for the animal friends we love.
They are not human,
yet they bring out our own humanity ~
sometimes in ways that other people cannot.
They do not worry about fame or fortune ~
instead they bring our hearts nearer to the joy of simple things.
Each day they teach us little lessons
in trust and steadfast affection.
Whatever Heaven may be,
there's surely a place in it
for friends as good as these. =^.^=

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
Good mews! My Mom got our outside fursib Ebony into the cat carrier this morning and took him to the vet. Ebony got his first round of vaccinations and some blood work done, but he put up a fight. When it was all over, Ebony had gotten a bite of my Mom’s hand. But it’s not bad and the vet cleaned her hand up and bandaged it. My Mom is just sad that Ebony was so frightened. My Mom has to bring Ebony back to the vet in ten days for the rest of his shots, so Mom is going to keep him and Sugar Bear locked up in the backyard until then. Thanks for all your well wishes and support. CC furiends are the best!

Whoo hoo! Finster is eating a lot! That's wonderful mews! We have our paws crossed that Percey will mellow out. Percey has a loving furever house and will realize that soon enough.

It’s a nice quiet Sunday with temperatures in the mid-eighties. We can’t go out in the backyard yet because Ebony and Sugar Bear are still there. Humph! But that’s okay. Callie and I are sunning in the bay windows. Plus we’ve all been getting more treats than usual lately, so I can’t complain.

My Mom actually got to pet both Ebony and Sugar Bear after she fed them this morning. Both cats have stopped trying to escape. The cat fence in the backyard really passed the test! Mom was afraid they might hurt themselves, but thankfully they didn’t.

Hee, hee, hee! Rosie sounds a lot like my fursister Callie - an angry lady! Don't tell her I said that! Rosie and Callie need to "chill out!" Is a "cat comb" like a brush for your fur? I hope you get one for Christmas dear furiends.

We’re pawing by to wish you a wonderful weekend. Not too much time to meow today:( My Mom still has not gotten our outside fursib, Ebony into the cat carrier, but both Sugar Bear and Ebony are slowly getting used to being confined in our backyard for now.

A Place in Heaven =^.^=
~~~~~
Is there a place in Heaven
Where furry companions go
Before I'd want to go there
I'd really need to know

A being pure of spirit
And a being without sin
Is surely one that should be there
But does God let him in?

The theologians argue
A soul is what they lack
But one who's always there for you
Should be given something back

I could not face eternity
Without paws and tails
And if that's what religion thinks
Then that is where it fails

I hope God doesn't let me down
I'm sure He knows their worth
For we who have been loved by them
Have Heaven here on Earth!

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
Well, my Mom wasn’t able to get our new outside fursib Ebony into a cat carrier yet, but she hasn’t given up. My Mom is going to keep Ebony and Sugar Bear in our backyard for a couple more days, giving them time to settle down a little. The construction on the street is almost over, so things are starting to quiet down again and that might help. Our vet was nice enough to tell Mom to bring Ebony in any time.

In the meantime, Callie and I got to go for our cat stroller walk this morning, but we can’t go outside while Ebony and Sugar Bear are staying there. My Mom recently put up a nice outdoor cathouse for them on the side of the house to sleep in, but they are still getting used to it. They are both very wary of anything new.

We hope Rosie sees how much fun Percey and Mitzi have, and maybe Rosie will try to be nicer. We hope your Mom comes back from PetSmart with lots of goodies!

The animals are more ancient than us.
They were here for millennia before humans surfaced on the earth.
Animals are our ancient brothers and sisters.
They enjoy a seamless presence –
a lyrical unity with the earth.
Animals live outside in the wind,
in the waters, in the mountains, and in the clay.
The knowing of the earth is in them.
The Zen-like silence and thereness of the landscape
is mirrored in the silence and solitude of animals.
Animals know nothing of Freud, Jesus, Buddha,
Wall Street, the Pentagon, or the Vatican.
They live outside the politics of human intention.
Somehow they already inhabit the eternal.

We have our internet back today, but there is still construction going on, putting the sidewalk back together. It looks like quite a mess, but the construction guys said they should be finished today.

My Mom still has our outside fursibs locked up in the backyard. It has a cat fence all around the yard so they can’t get out, although they tried yesterday. It took a while for my Mom to get them settled down. They both finally fell asleep on top of the doghouse. (Which is my favorite stop to catnap!) While my Mom has them both confined in the backyard, she is going to try to get Ebony into a cat carrier so she can take him to the vet for a check up and vaccinations. Keep your paws crossed.

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

Hi Angel Rhuby!
We’re not able to use our internet right now because the phone company is working on the lines on our street. They’re digging up the sidewalk and it’s a mess. Mom is at the library right now using their computer. It has been years since my Mom has used the library. She is amazed at how high-tech it is.

Our outside fursibs have been scared by all the noise so Mom lured Ebony and Sugar Bear into the backyard this morning where they are safe right now. We have been watching them from the backyard sliding glass door, wondering who they are and why we can’t go outside. MOL! Hope to be back up soon.

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
Great news that Percey is doing so well. We are all pleasingly plump around here, except for me of course. MOL!

Happy Labor Day! My pawrents had their celebration BBQ yesterday. There were too many people over at house, so us cats hid out in the master bedroom all day! Not much of a celebration for us. My Mom did get us all lots of treats though.

Our new outside fursibs, Ebony and Sugar Bear are still recovering too, from all the company yesterday. The two cats were late for dinner last night and breakfast this morning. My Mom was walking all over the neighborhood, calling out for them. They both finally came back, but are still a little wary after all the commotion. Good thing my pawrents don’t entertain a lot! MOL!

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
We saw the pictures of Percey on FB. She is beautiful! She looks so tiny!

Not too much going on for us today. Mom and Dad left us alone to go grocery shopping this morning, but no Petco stop until tomorrow. My sisters and I are working on our shopping lists.

I guess you could say I’m becoming a certified ‘Lap Cat’. My Mom didn’t like the way I was always trying to fluff up her legs though, so she brought out a nice, flat pillow for her lap. It took me a few minutes, but I gave it my paw of approval. I even almost fell asleep, until I was rudely awakened by my Dad’s thunderous laughter from something on the television. Dad needs to work on his quiet voice. MOL!

Our outside fursib, Sugar Bear, let my Mom get close enough to get a good look at her nose. It looks like the antibiotics did the job. She still has a scab on her nose, but it looks to be peeling and getting smaller. Mom’s hoping Sugar Bear just scraped her nose on something really bad, it got infected, and now it’s healing.

Have a nice, relaxing Saturday with your family.

• The world’s largest cat measured 48.5 inches long!

• The oldest known female cat was “Crème Puff” of Austin, Texas. She died at the age of 38 in 2005.

• The oldest known male cat was “Puss” of Devon, England. He died in 1939 at the age of 36.

• In Ancient Egypt, if a housecat died, the whole family shaved off their eyebrows as a sign of respect. Also, any person who killed a cat was put to death.

• The heaviest cat was believed to be “Poppa,” who weighed 44 pounds and died in 1985. The Guinness World Records committee no longer documents this record for fear that owners will overfeed their cats trying to break it.

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
Hooray for Percey! She decide to join in on the family fun! Now if she'll just start eating a bit more. We have our paws crossed!

It’s going to be another hot one here today with temps in the nineties. My Mom took Callie and me for a walk in our cat stroller this morning and it was already warm outside at 6 a.m. We left some water in our bucket down by the empty creek, but we haven’t seen any deer for quite a while. We hope it’s just because we are walking later, now that Dad is back at work.

Whitey and Orangie are doing fine, both already catnapping in the upstairs window. Our outside fursibs, Sugar Bear and Ebony, were waiting for Mom this morning to feed them. Last night my Mom saw them both sitting on top of the new cat house that Mom set up for them. Mom is hoping to see them go inside the cat house soon. Right now they are both a little wary of it. Sugar Bear has stated meowing at Mom again when she brings their food out, but still not letting Mom touch her yet.

Cat Fun Facts =^.^=
~~~~~
• Cats respond most readily to names that end in an "ee" sound.

• Female felines are "superfecund," which means that each of the kittens in her litter can have a different father.

• When a domestic cat goes after mice, about 1 pounce in 3 results in a catch.

• Cats come back to full alertness from the sleep state faster than any other creature.

• Cats with long, lean bodies are more likely to be outgoing, and more protective and vocal than those with a stocky build.

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
I think it's just going to take a little time before Percey can roam around downstairs. It took Whitey and Orangie almost a whole year before they could come downstairs without Callie growling at them. Callie still gives them the evil eye when she sees them, but it's not as bad as it was. We have all of you in our prayers dear furiend.

Yesterday I did something for the very first time, surprising the heck out of my Mom. While she was sitting in the living room watching T.V. with my Dad last night, I jumped up on the couch with her like I always do, but then I decided to curl up on her lap. I was tentative at first, kneading my paws on her legs to fluff them up a bit, but then I did a full circle and plopped down, having her undivided attention.

I’m not a lap cat, none of us are, but I decided to give it a try. MOL! Mom and Dad looked at each other - speechless. Then that silly Mom of mine started to think maybe something was wrong with me. Nope. I’m fine. I sat there and let my Mom pet me and scratch behind my ears, for quite a while. It was pretty nice, but Mom has been watching me like a hawk ever since, making sure I’m all right. Hee, hee, hee. Humans! You gotta love them!

Following a woman with a Cat out of the movie theater, a man stopped her and said, "I'm sorry to bother you, but I was amazed that your Cat seemed to get into the movie so much. He cried at the right spots, moved nervously at the boring spots, and laughed like crazy at the funny parts. Don't you find that unusual?
"Yes," she replied. "I find it very unusual. Especially considering that he hated the book!"

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
It's good to hear Percey is doing well. I'll bet she'll have fun while your Mom tries to figure out what food she likes. Lucky kitty! That is so cute Percey is a chatty cat! None of us are, but Mom wishes we were! We'll keep her and Finster in our prayers dear furiend.

The weather is starting to warm up again. We are in the low-nineties today; tomorrow even hotter. My Mom has let the vacuum monster run loose all morning, so us kitties are hiding in our favorites spot under bed. (The only time we can all get along while huddled together. MOL!)

My Mom gave our outside fursib Sugar Bear her final dose of antibiotics today. Hooray for Sugar Bear! Her nose looks like it has a scab that is getting smaller day-by-day. Ebony and Sugar Bear are both doing fine.

We can’t believe another month is coming to an end. Who would of thought in January we’d still be meowing to each other on CC?! Happy days! Hope your Wednesday is wonderful.

Why Kittens are Better than Babies =^.^=
~~~~~
• Your kitten won't grow out of those cute, but expensive clothes within three months.

• You probably don't have to lie awake nights wondering how you are going to finance your kitten's college education.

• No one will accuse you of being an unfit mother if you don't want to breast feed your kitten.

• No one will accuse you of destroying the moral fabric of the country if you aren't married to the father of your kitten. In fact, nobody will ever ask you if you know who the father is.

• No one will question your abilities to function normally at your job when they hear you just got a kitten.

And the Number 1 reason why kittens are better than babies:

• You only have to change a litter box once a day!

Hooray for Percey! We'll keep Percey and Finster in our prayers!

We hope you got to enjoy the beautiful wedding ceremony and reception for Fluffinella and Joey Brown today. It was so incredibly beautiful there wasn’t a dry in the house. The wedding ceremony was on the catmewsroom, in the lovely wedding chapel and the reception is ongoing on CC at our Cat’s Meow Resort & Event Center (271826), in the “Touch of Sunshine” reception room. You better bring your dancing shoes!

We want to thank all our CC furiends for coming out to paw a vote yesterday for our dear furiend Neekah Boo (251057). Neekah Boo and her family are mourning the loss of her fursister Angel Fatty, but we know being named as COTD, let her know how much she is loved. CC furiends are the best, paws down.

We are all doing fine. Our new fursib Sugar Bear is almost done with her antibiotics and her nose looks good. The scab is starting to peel off her nose. Whatever caused it seems to be healing. Thanks for all your well wishes and prayers!

Things A Cat Thinks About While Catnapping =^.^=
~~~~~
• I could have sworn I heard a can opener.

• Is there something I'm not getting when humans make noise with their mouths?

• Why doesn't the government do something about dogs?

• Hmmmm.... If dogs serve humans, and humans serve cats, why can't we ever get those STUPID dogs to do anything for us?

• Hey - no kidding, I'm sure that's the can opener.

• Would humans have built a vast and complex civilisation of their own if we cats hadn't given them a reason to invent sofas and can openers in the first place.

• If there's a God, how can He allow neutering?

• If that really was the can opener, I'll play finicky just to let THEM know who's boss !!

We'll be praying for Percey dear furiend. We know a trip to the vet is never easy. We're glad to hear Finster is eating. Salami? Really?! That crazy cat! We have Finster in our prayers too.

Just a furiendly reminder to please paw a COTD shout-out vote for our dear furiend Neekah Boo today (251057). Neekah Boo is real sweetheart. Her fursister Fatty sadly became an angel this morning. Neekah Boo could sure use some cheering up from us CC kitties. We’d love to see her pretty face as our COTD tomorrow!

Our new outside fursibs, Ebony and Sugar Bear are doing well. Mom has been able to fool Sugar Bear by mixing her medicine into her food. So far, so good. Sugar Bear is still a bit frightened of my Mom after the two trips to the vet and then having to take the awful tasting medicine, but Mom talks to both kitties every day, trying to win back Sugar Bear’s trust

Callie and I went our cat stroller walk this morning with Mom, but we haven’t seen any deer for a while. Mom fills up the water bucket every morning on the trail. It’s always empty so some thirsty animal is drinking it.

Inspection of the House =^.^=

A house usually has unlimited possibilities for suitable sleeping spots. Every possibility no matter how theoretical should be investigated and tested. Cardboard boxes, cupboards, drawers, couches and beds are obvious localities, but places such as old slippers (size 11 or higher) open gym bags or kitchen cupboards should not be overlooked. The house should further be investigated for all possible toys. An old sock can represent several hours of entertainment if you get your claw on a loose end and unravel a couple of miles worth of yarn. You human will love to tidy up after your play.

With frequent and diligent application of these tips, your human will be trained in no time at all and most importantly; your human will be very well cared for! MOL!

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
A 6.1 earthquake rattled the north bay town of Napa this morning at 3:20. We didn’t feel it where we live in San Jose and thankfully not too many people have been reported injured (so far). There was a lot of structural damage though. The news is monitoring the event non-stop right now. We are praying for all the people and animals that are affected by this very scary event.

It’s another warm day today. We hope to see you kitties at King Spanky Jack’s Castle Water Sport’s Day at our Cat’s Meow Resort & Event Center. What better way to stay cool?!

Door Training =^.^=

One of the first things you need to teach your human is to open the front door, the garden door and backdoor when required. This is done by walking up to a door and making an impatient and very loud meow. Make some tripping steps with your back paws obviously indicating that you need to go to the outdoor litter box.

When your human has gotten up from the couch and opened the door you decide that you do not really need to go outside right now. Just for appearances, you can stand in the open door and pretend that you are thinking about the situation for a few seconds before you turn around to go inside again. Repeat this procedure several times a day. This will keep your human in good door opening form.

My Dear Fur Friend ♥ Angel Rhuby....
Hello! It's so nice to be back.
Mom and I are very sorry for being gone for a couple of weeks. We missed everyone so much.
We are having unusual weather in Buenos Aires, it feels like summer with hot temperatures around +85F. We should be getting into spring next month, but Momma says our weather is just crazy. Tee-hee!!
Anyway, all of us have been enjoying Mr. Sun. I love napping by the window and having sun baths there. Mommy had many busy days at work and she had not much time left to help us with our blogs because of it. We miss her when she's gone all day. We make sure to give her many special purrs when she comes back home. We are all looking forward to the weekend when our parents have some free time to spend with us and also to play and spoil us.
We hope you have a super purrfect weekend too. We send you a huge bunch of hugs and many whisker kisses.
With much love,
from your friends always,

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
Great mews to hear Finster is looking better and maybe gaining weight! Whoo hoo! Give Finster and your Mom a big hug for us.

We have some mews on our two new outside fursibs, Ebony & Sugar Bear...

My Mom finally heard back from Denise, the lady from Alley Cat Allies. Denise found out Ebony was T-N-R’d way back in July 2010. Denise said 2010 was the first year of helping feral cats for the Feral Freedom Organization. Ebony was estimated to be approx. 2-3 years old in 2010. So Ebony is probably 6-7 years old now. BUT - Ebony is not from the same feral colony as Sugar Bear. Ebony was released to a colony located about 3 miles from my Mom’s house. So Denise doesn’t know what happened between 2010 and now, or how Ebony got here. Denise said Ebony was listed on his paperwork back in 2010 as a “Big Black Cat.” Denise laughed because my Mom always refers to Ebony as the “big cat.”

What remains a mystery is how and why Ebony and Sugar Bear became such good furiends? They are complete opposites! (With the exception they are both black cats, but Ebony is shorthaired and Sugar Bear is longhaired.) Ebony is big and very calm and quiet. Sugar Bear is small and can barely keep still for more than a minute. Sugar Bear is maybe a year old or less. Now we know Ebony could be 8 years old. They kind of remind us of Whitey and Orangie. It’s nice to know us cats really do look out for each other.:)

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

P.S. My Mom got dose number 3 of Sugar Bear’s medicine down this morning. The mornings seem to be the best time to catch Sugar Bear off guard!

House-guests =^.^=

House-guests require special attention and handling. The following procedures should be followed:

House-guests that either do not like us or are allergic to us: As soon as they sit down - jump onto their lap.
Noisy children that run after you and/or pull your tail: It is your duty to punish them - it can be necessary to use both claws and teeth. However, be prepared that this can result in noise that is even more annoying and of an even louder decibel level.
Guests that try to get in contact with you by ingratiating themselves and speaking in a sweet voice: Should just be ignored. If they try to approach you, back away 5-6 feet - but never further away than they feel encouraged to try again. With a bit of practice this game can he kept going for hours.

Not too much going on here today. Mom is busy around the house, ignoring us. Humph! The weather is in the mid-eighties, nice enough for Callie and I to catnap outside on the deck. Whitey and Orangie are napping in their window beds.

My Mom was not able to give our new outside fursib, Sugar Bear, her second dose of antibiotics last night. Sugar Bear is no dummy and she hated the taste of the Clavamox. Who doesn’t?! BUT! Mom was able to grab her this morning. This time Mom gave Sugar Bear the syringe full of medicine, followed by a syringe full of blended cat food with water. Sugar Bear didn’t seem as upset.

Sleeping Time =^.^=

It is important for us cats to prioritize our sleeping time. The objective is to get as much sleep done as possible while your human is awake. You will then be especially well rested and bushy-tailed at night when it is your job to keep your human awake. There is the classical "play with toes" approach: attack everything that moves under the duvet. You can also reenact highlights from last year's Grand National Steeplechase by repeatedly galloping across the bed. A couple of loud meows will give it an extra exiting dimension for your human.

My Mom was able to successfully give our new outside fursib, Sugar Bear, her first dose of antibiotics last night. Sugar Bear’s nose is looking better today, if that’s possible. It might be wishful thinking on my Mom’s part. This morning both Sugar Bear and her furiend Ebony were waiting for breakfast, so thankfully Sugar Bear isn’t too mad at Mom.

More Ways To Prevent Your Human From Wasting Valuable Time =^.^=

Cleaning: stalk the vacuum cleaner and attack when it passes by. You can also pretend that you want to attack the vacuum cleaner but "accidentally" catch a foot instead. (A sure way to get the vacuum monster shut off immediately!)

Garden work: jump repeatedly up-and-down and scatter any leaves that your human has raked together. Attack gardening tools, especially while they are in use. Immediately dig up any newly planted seeds, plants and flowers.

Under no circumstances accept closed doors that separate you from your human. At all times you have a right to know what your human is doing. If by accident you have been placed on the wrong side of a door you need to make your human aware of this ASAP so he/she can remedy the situation immediately. Loud meows and scratching on the door should be sufficient to get your human's attention. If this is ignored you need to take more drastic measures: Make a sound as if you are going to throw up. All humans in a 50 feet radius can hear this sound. This sound can also be heard through closed doors. The "puke sound" will always result in your human's immediate presence.

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
We have Finster in our prayers dear furiend. We hope Finster is taking his medicine like a good cat! Give your Mom a big hug for us.

Our new outside fursib Sugar Bear went to the vet today because of a scab on her nose. The vet is treating her for an infection. The doctor doesn’t think it’s an allergy because Sugar Bear isn’t scratching a lot. So Sugar Bear got a penicillin shot and the rest of her booster shots. The vet also gave my Mom some Clavamox oral antibiotic drops to give Sugar Bear twice a day. The vet knows Sugar Bear is still an outside kitty right now, but she told my Mom to just try her best to give Sugar Bear the medicine.

Sugar Bear weighed 6.4 lbs when Mom took her in 2 weeks ago. Today she weighed 7 lbs! The vet told my Mom Sugar Bear is so small and docile, she’ll have a much better chance at surviving at our house, than going back to her feral colony. Mom was happy to hear the vet say that, even though it’s already been decided.

When Mom and Sugar Bear got back home, Ebony was waiting by the garage door for her furiend. It made my Mom’s eyes tear up. Those two kitties are such good furiends. When Mom let Sugar Bear out of the carrier, she started to run away, but turned around when she heard a can of cat food opened. Ebony and Sugar Bear ate heartily together. :)

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
Oh sweet furiend, we are praying for Finster to take his medicine. Have your pawrents tried dissolving the pill in some warm water (or broth) and giving it to Finster with an eyedropper or syringe? That's what my Mom does when she need to be sure we take our medicine. My Dad holds our head and Mom squirts it down our throat, holding our mouth closed for a few seconds so we don't spit it out. Us cats can be stubborn!

We had a great time at King Spanky’s Castle Game Night yesterday. I’m still recovering from the dunking booth! I noticed a lot of my furiends suddenly had very good aim when I was on the dunking seat. MOL! My sister Callie kept buying tickets to get in line until thankfully for me, she ran out of catbucks! (Hee, hee, hee...I know where she lives!)

My Mom hasn’t heard back from the Alley Cat Allies lady, with information on Ebony, our new black cat furiend. Sugar Bear, the little momma cat has something on the bridge of her nose that looks kind of like a grayish colored scab. Sugar Bear is still eating great and running around like a kitten, but Mom doesn’t like the look of her nose, so Sugar Bear is going back to the vet on Monday. Hopefully it’s nothing serious. We’ll let you know what happens.

Other than that, it’s a quiet Sunday with temps in the mid eighties. Nice catnapping weather!

Grass Etiquette =^.^=

Before you eat grass, make sure that you are close to a suitable place to throw up. Delicate furniture fabrics, precious carpets, and shoes are all good places. If you choose furniture: aim for the part that has non-removable fabric. When you are getting down to business, make sure you back up a step or two so that you cover the largest area possible. Another technique is to do several items with pauses in-between. Persian carpets will provide a good camouflage effect and your little gift will often not be discovered until somebody steps in it.

Hooray for your Dad! We sure hope Finster will try to make it easier on your Dad to take his medicine without a fuss. We have our paws crossed and we'll keep sweet Finster in our prayers.

My sister Callie and I have been taking our cat stroller walks a little bit later since Dad is back at work. We wave goodbye to Dad and are out the door by 6 a.m. But sadly, we haven’t seen any deer. It must be too late in the day for them. My Mom still fills the bucket with water and it’s always empty when we get there.

No word on our new outside furiend Ebony yet. My Mom returned the microchip scanner to Denise, the Alley Cat Allies lady, yesterday and we’re waiting for her to get back to us. Denise did say she is pretty sure Ebony is a male, since his left ear had been clipped when he was neutered. Denise said it should be a veterinary protocol to always clip the left ear of a TNR male feral cat, and the right ear of a female cat. (But the protocol is not always followed.) Mom feels it in her bones that Ebony is a male. Ebony is so cool and calm, like me. MOL! Oh, oh... Callie just gave me the “Evie” evil eye! Hee hee! (You have to know K. Mike, his sister Evie and their family to get that joke!).

I left a vote with soft purrs, hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need. We hope your Friday is a fun one! :)

How to Care for Your Humans...
(Useful Advice for Cats - Part 5)

Prevent Your Human From Wasting Valuable Time =^.^=

One of the most important tasks we cats have is to prevent humans from wasting their time. Humans love to spend their time on things with no relevance for cats. For example watching TV, reading, talking on the phone - and many other things that have no entertainment value for us cats whatsoever. Many methods are available to prevent human time waste - use your imagination. Some especially effective techniques will be mentioned here.

Watching TV: make sure that you always position yourself between the TV and your human. On the coffee table for example. You can also lie on the TV and let your tail or paws swing down in front of the screen. This method is most effective with small screens where you can cover a large percentage of the screen. It is a bit trickier with a flat screen - and only recommended for the agile kitty. A variation can be used with a computer screen. Flat screens often leave a lot of empty space on the desk - so just get up in front - remind your human of how wonderful you are.

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
My Mom and I are running a little behind in my blogging today and she just let the dreaded vacuum monster loose. Yikes!

My Mom was able to get a reading on Ebony’s microchip number last night. Mom is meeting with Denise, the Alley Cat Allies lady, later today. We should learn more about Ebony’s past history soon.

All of us kitties are fine, catnapping the day away, until now that is. I better go find my favorite hiding spot from the vacuum monster!

Wangling Extra Food =^.^=

All chances for a bit of extra food must and should be taken advantage of. Whenever your human is in the kitchen, you have a prime opportunity of getting an extra snack. When your human is busy at the kitchen counter place yourself in your humans blind angle (just behind the ankle is usually a good spot). And the second your human moves one or both feet you jump back screaming your most heart- wrenching cry. Your human will automatically assume that he/she stepped on you. When your human looks back scared to see what is happening look up at him/her with a painful expression on your face (practice this before hand in front of a mirror). Your human's bad conscience will often result an edible apology.

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
We are so glad to hear Finster and YOGI are doing okay. We'll keep them both in our prayers!

We hope you and your family had a wonderful Wednesday day. Here is an update on our new outside furiends, Sugar Bear and Ebony...

Mom had a meeting with Denise, the lady from Alley Cats Allies organization. They are trying to find out which Feral Cat Colony Ebony came from and if it is the same colony Sugar Bear came from. Sugar Bear’s chip showed she came from across town and should have been put back in her neighborhood. :(

Anyway... Denise (the Alley Cat Allies lady) loaned my Mom a “Universal Worldscan Pocket Reader.” It is manufactured by “HomeAgain Pet Rescuers.” When my Mom got home, she tried the scanner out on Callie and me first. We all have microchips. The scanner worked great on both of us. Then Mom went outside and sure enough Ebony and Sugar Bear came running up the driveway when they heard the “Temptations” bag rattling. My Mom got close enough to Ebony to get a quick reading, but then Ebony got spooked and ran away from Mom. Mom wrote down the microchip number that came up. The microchip number is a lot different than ours and Sugar Bears, so Mom is going to try for a second reading tonight. Mom is afraid the scanner might have gotten a bad reading. Ebony is now looking at Mom with caution! MOL! I told my Mom to take a deep breath, relax and talk softly the next time she approaches Ebony. The scanner is a bit big and Ebony was a little frightened by the size of the digital scanner in Mom’s hand. Actually, Callie and I were both startled when Mom scanned us, but we know she means well - and it didn’t hurt at all!

Shed Hair Freely =^.^=

Make it a priority to shed indoors on appropriate surfaces. Fleece is a particularly suitable material to shred on. All you need to do is pass close by your human when he or she is wearing fleece. All cat hair within a radius of two feet from the fabric will immediately be transferred to your human. No brushing necessary for several days!

Another good solution is to get access to a filled clothes hamper. Jump in and give all contents a good work over. An extra bonus with this method is that most cat hairs will survive a trip to the washing machine. Your human will be stylishly accessorized with cat hair on all outfits.

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
We have our paws crossed that Finster gets well quickly with the antibiotics. We'll be praying for both Finster and YOGI. Give your dear Mom a big hug for us.

It’s a nice sunny day, perfect for catnapping. My Mom spoke to the lady from Alley Cats Allies this morning and learned a little bit more about Sugar Bear, one of our two new outside furiends. Apparently Sugar Bear is from a Feral Cat colony located on the other side of town from us. Sugar Bear should have been returned to her colony where she is familiar with her surroundings. The Alley Cat Allies lady (her name is Denise) is trying to figure out how this happened so it doesn’t happen again. She said a TNR cat that is not returned to his or her neighborhood could easy be frightened and killed. Denise wants to find out if the second cat, Ebony, is also from the same colony. Maybe that’s why the two kitties are such good furiends. Denise wants my Mom to try to scan the microchip in Ebony so she can get to the bottom of this. My Mom is going to meet Denise tomorrow so Denise can loan my Mom the scanner. Ebony is still very skittish around Mom, but Mom has been trying to earn Ebony’s trust.

My Mom asked Denise if would be in the cats’ best interest to go back to where they lived. Denise said she would normally say yes, but since Sugar Bear and Ebony have each other and Mom is willing to care for them, then they should both be fine here. We’ll let you all know what happens.

Entertaining your Human =^.^=

The litter box provides a great opportunity for entertaining your human. Naturally there is all the fun your human can have cleaning and scooping out the box. A lot of human time can also be used getting fresh litter - going to the pet store, transporting it home etc. However many humans like new challenges. Utilize your litter box time in the best possible way. Make interesting and artistic renderings of countries or well-known islands. Your human will have lots of fun guessing which one you made. Humans like game shows - so this should be a popular activity. When your human increases in skill, you can also make portraits of family and friends. Start with profile portraits - this will make it easer for your human.

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
Oh sweet furiend, we have Finster in our thoughts and prayers and all our paws our crossed for good mews. We're sorry to hear your Dad had to go in to work today. No fair!

Today is our Dad’s first day back at school. School doesn’t begin for the kids until Tuesday, but the teachers have meetings on Monday. Our weather is very nice, in the low eighties, so Callie and I will be sunning on the deck for a while. Whitey and Orangie are already sunning in the bedroom window.

The outside kitties Sugar Bear and Ebony, ate very well this morning. Sugar Bear loves playing with her Cosmic Catnip banana. She already chewed right through the first one and is on her second one! Mom needs to make a trip to Petco this week.

How to Care for Your Humans...
(Useful Advice for Cats - Part 1)

For us cats there are several sweet advantages in having a human as a pet. However, remember you are taking on a big responsibility when you adopt one or more humans. Humans are demanding pets that need daily care and attention.
With responsibility come both advantages and disadvantages. If you adopt a human, you must get used to spending time at home. Your human does not deal well with being left alone - they will get into all sorts of mischief. For example, if you are gone just two or three days you run the risk of seeing posters put up all over the neighborhood. Your human will put out an APB on you! Often it will include an embarrassing text that reveals all sorts of personal details - and usually accompanied by an unflattering photo of you - with morning fur and crumpled whiskers. Exactly the kind of thing that attracts ridicule from all the neighbor cats.

So please consider carefully if you are ready for a life with humans. In addition, remember humans generally grow very old, so there is a big chance that you will spend the rest of your life with your human.

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
We are running very late today dear furiend. Dad starts teaching tomorrow, so it's been crazy.

I have a feeling my Mom will want to bring Sugar Bear and Ebony inside the house. She just needs to work on our Dad a bit. MOL! I'll keep you posted.

Oh sweetie, we have dear Finster in our thoughts and prayers. Give him and your sweet Mom hugs for us. We'll check back on you kitties tomorrow.

I left you a vote with purrs and hugs.

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
We sure hope Finister is going to be okay. We'll be praying for his trip to the vet to go well. Give your sweet Mom a hug for us.

My Mom got an email from the Alley Cat Allies’ lady who had been helping her with Sugar Bear, the black momma cat. The nice lady said she would like to come out to meet both Sugar Bear and Ebony. She looked up the microchip number that was placed inside Sugar Bear and apparently Sugar Bear (who was a TNR cat), was returned to the wrong neighborhood. She is wondering about Ebony too. The Alley Cat Allies’ lady is perplexed and wants to see if Sugar Bear should be relabeled as adoptable. It’s all a bit confusing to our Mom, so Mom would love to speak to the lady and hopefully figure out what is going on.

My Mom is ready to take care of both cats and is in the process of getting some outdoor housing up for them. But if Sugar Bear has a chance to go to a loving home, then she wants whatever is best for the little cat. Ebony is not too friendly and seems older, so he (or she) is here to stay.

Whitey and Orangie were running up and down the stairs this morning around 1 a.m., sounding like little horses in the house. Mom thought it was me and got up to put me back to bed. I heard Mom calling my name and I waved my paw at her. I was right by her feet! So we were all surprised to see Whitey & Orangie playing together like kittens! Then it took furever for all of us to get back to sleep. MOL!

You Realize You're Kitty-Whipped When... =^.^=

.... you wait for the dryer to finish so you can take the clothes out and dump them on the bed because you know the cats want to sleep on it.

.... you type while kitty is lying almost on your keyboard and you type around her.

.... you think it's cute when you find cat fur in your food.

.... you laugh your head off knowing all of these posts are purrrrrfectly true!
