Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
My sister Whitey almost caught a bird in the backyard this morning. Luckily (for the bird!) my Mom was sweeping the patio and screamed just as it was happening. Feathers flew and us cats all took off to run back inside. Mom thought the little bird was a goner, but he sat for a few seconds on the deck stunned and then as Mom came closer he flew away! Whew! After all the excitement and yelling, we stayed in the house to catnap and dream about the one that got away. MOL!

Have a nice weekend and try to stay warm!

LULLABY =^.^=
~~~~~
Sometimes you need real courage
Just to make it through the day.
Sometimes you feel so lonely
Like the world has gone away.
Sometimes you cry for nothing
You're sad and don't know why.
That's when you need your friend to sing
His sweet, purr lullaby.
You stroke his fur so softly
While he stares into your eyes.
He knows the secrets of your soul
He lifts your world's disguise.
He sees you for who you are
Like no one ever could.
You know there's bad inside you but
He only see the good.
Now there's peace within you
All the hurt has gone away.
Thanks to the magic spell he wove
Of love, pure love today.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
My Mom took my sister Callie to the vet today for a weigh-in. The vet is adamant about Callie needing to lose some weight and guess what? Hooray! Callie lost 6 ounces in a month. Not a lot, but Mom is on the right track with getting Callie to exercise more. Callie likes her new cat toy called the “Cat Charmer” and Mom plays with her every evening before bedtime. And Callie loves it! She waits for Mom every night and even nudges Mom’s leg so she doesn’t forget! The vet was pleased with Callie’s weight loss, but told Mom to brush her teeth better, concentrating on the gum line. Aargh! It’s always something!

The sun is shining today, a purrfect day for catnapping outside. Whitey and Orangie spent an hour out in the backyard this morning, still exploring. They haven’t laid down to sleep in their cat beds in the backyard yet, but we have our paws crossed.

That would be wonderful if your Dad could get a job that is so close to home! And your Mom too! We sure will keep our paws crossed for them.

This month of January is the driest month ever according to our local news station. Not one single day of rain in the entire month. At least in December we got a lot of rain, but not enough to help the drought. My Mom is going to keep taking water to the creek where she fills up a bucket. Sadly the bucket is always empty the next day, so some animals must be thirsty.:(

WAKE UP CALL =^.^=
~~~~~
There's a kitty sitting
Down at the end of the bed--
Watching, wond'ring--
Waiting to be fed.
Whisking, frisking,
She runs up our backs,
Returns to our feet
Making mock attacks.
Up again she creeps,
Peering at our faces.
She touches my nose,
Then away she races.
"Okay, little puss, I'll get up," I say,
As our furry alarm clock
Continues to play.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Hopefully all our furiends and their families are safe and will be able to recover quickly from the violent snowstorm that hit the northeast. Thank goodness it wasn’t quite as bad as predicted, but better to be safe than sorry. We're so glad to hear your family is all right.

We hope your Dad's boss gets in trouble for not being honest. Why do some people have to make others so difficult?! We'll keep your Dad and Mom in our prayers. We're happy Ling is doing well. Give everyone warm hugs for us.

Meanwhile, the weather here in California is like the flip side of the coin - dry and warm. It’s a shame we can’t trade some our sunshine for just a little bit of rain and snow. My sister Callie and I are catnapping in the backyard. Whitey and Orangie have started waiting by the back door to open in the morning. The two kitties roam the yard for a while, chase a few birds that are brave enough to land on the deck and then they both run back upstairs to catnap in their window beds. My Mom is glad to see Whitey and Orangie exploring and getting more exercise. Callie doesn’t appreciate them getting comfortable around HER house, but she’s getting more tolerant.:)

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

P.S. We hope your Mom doesn't have to pay the extra money for what she should have gotta for her coke reward points! Geez!

HOW MANY CATS? =^.^=
~~~~~
There once was a time when I had just one cat
But he needed a friend and so that was that.
But when the friend came, she invited her brother;
In less than a month, followed "Fifi," their mother.
Four cats now - that's the end I say
But I encountered a litter in my garage one day.
I found excellent homes for kits one, two and three,
But kit number four and Mom stayed on with me.
Kept indoors, all neutered - my family six strong;
I said - NO MORE - but not for long.
"June" was abandoned right near my job.
The day she was spayed, along came "Bob."
Well this all took place some years back
Now how many cats? I stopped keeping track.
I spend hours each day giving scratches and pats,
Some people have rugs; I have wall-to-wall cats!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
We hope and pray all our furiends in the path of the northeastern storm are safe and warm. Watching the mews is unnerving and hard for us to imagine such extreme conditions. God bless all the people and animals out there without shelter.

What?! Your Dad's boss is evil! He shouldn't be able to get away with anything. There have to be records of the money your Dad paid into taxes, which includes unemployment! We hope it doesn't delay the payments your Dad so richly deserves. We have our paws crossed for him.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
We’ve been listening to the mews reporting on the big storm that’s scheduled to hit the Northeast. It sounds very frightening. We have everyone in its path in our thoughts and prayers.

We'll be thinking about you and your family dear furiend. We're glad to hear your Mom and Dad will stay home with the kitties. Be safe dear furiends.

It’s almost the end of January and still no rain in sight for us. The mews said this could be the driest month of January ever for us. Not a good sign.

ODE TO MY CAT =^.^=
~~~~~
She's my alarm clock in the morning,
She's my friend and companion at night
And in all the in-between times
She's never out of my sight.
It's such a lovely feeling
To know she depends on me
For her food and warmth and shelter
So she gives me her love to see.
She plays with her toys; plays hide and seek
She's become the boss of the house!
Yet she has more fun with a walnut shell
Than she does with a catnip mouse!
The pleasure she gives me is a treasure
She greets me when I come in the door.
She seems to say "I've been lonesome so
Please don't go out anymore!"
She's my delight, my friend and my prankster
She pounces and jumps up real high
For a ball of yarn or a wiggly string
With a purr or a soft little cry.
She washes her face after eating.
Keeps her striped fur clean and sleek.
Jumps on my lap for approval and then
Curls herself up for her sleep.
So I wouldn't give up my kitty
For the world and all of its' gold.
'Cause if my kitty weren't with me
This world would be awfully cold!

-Doris A. Bartley

Today is predicted to be in the mid 70’s, breaking more records for the warmest day in January, but should start to cool back down tomorrow. The mornings are still chilly, so Mom covers some of her plants at night so they don’t freeze. But the warm weather is causing some of the plants and trees to start budding much too soon. We’re still praying for rain.

We've been watching the mews about the storm coming your way. We are so worried for all of you. We'll be praying for your family's safety dear furiends.

Sending you wishes for a relaxing evening.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Today and tomorrow will be 70 degrees where we live. Last week my Mom had to cover her favorite rubber tree with sheets to keep it from freezing and this morning she noticed a new leaf starting to bud. The weather has us all confused! We need rain!

The good mews is all of us cats are enjoying the deck in the backyard. Mom has beds outside for all of us. Whitey and Orangie haven’t stayed outside long enough to catnap, but every day they both come out to explore a little more. My sister Callie doesn’t run in the house anymore when they come outside. She stays in her bed staring at them, giving them the “Evie Eye.” Mom is going to try to get a picture of Whitey and Orangie when they’re outside. They look so cute holding their heads up to the sun. I purrsonally, only go outside for the bird watching and right now there are lots of them. I’ll get one yet if that mean Mom of mine doesn’t foil my chances!

An inch of snow sounds like a lot to us! We hope your family is safe and warm.Give them all warm angel hugs for us.

Sending you wishes for a relaxing and happy evening.

Then how can you ever feel alone
Knowing God's angel is in your home.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
It was a little bit chilly on our cat stroller walk this morning with Mom, but the temperature is supposed to be 69 degrees, breaking a record for the warmest day in January. Not a good sign for the drought, but the weatherman on the news always acts like we should be happy. The creek by our house is dried up again, so Mom is back to hauling two gallons of water to fill the bucket by the creek. Actually, we let Mom put the water jugs in the basket under our cat stroller. She just has to push a little harder. MOL!

We hope your weather clears up long enough for your Mom to make a safe trip to PetSmart. Give sweet Ling and your pawrents warm hugs for us.

We hope you are all staying safe and warm. Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
As soon as my Mom woke up this morning, we all ran to the computer room to see if CC was back up. Hooray! It was! My Mom had sent a few emails each day to the i5Publishing Site Support along with several screen shots of how awful the CC pages looked. We only heard back from them one time, acknowledging our emails, so we thought we were doomed. We were thrilled to see everything back to normal. Mom wrote a thank you email to the site support right away. It couldn’t hurt!

We are all doing fine, catnapping in the windows and the backyard since the sun is shining. Whitey and Orangie have been enjoying the backyard more and more each day. Whitey has tried to climb the tree a few times, but she’s learning there is no escape. The trees have a netted hoop around them midway up the tree, so she bounces back each time.

Ebony and Sugar Bear got heated “Kitty Sill” beds for Christmas, so Mom went to their house to install them. The two kitties loved them so much, Mom ordered a couple for our windows. Let’s see who fights over them. MOL!

Oh no! We hope your Mom is okay after her fall. That is very scary! We're glad to hear Ling is doing well and eating her wet food. We hope your Dad gets his unemployment that is coming to him. We hope he isn't sad. I bet you kitties are happy to have him home. Give your Mom and Dad warm hugs for us.

Kitty Creation Story =^.^=
~~~~~
During the first winter,
humans struggled to keep
warm. God decided to
create a helper. The helper
would be a space heater
that could be kept on the
lap or the end of the bed
for warmth. God covered
the little heater with soft
fur that relieved stress
when humans put their
hands on it. Two bright
eyes were added as
windows to God’s love, for
the heater created warmth
with a heart that loved
without condition. And, if
you listened closely, you
could hear his motor run.

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
We are still having problems with the CC website. We can log on, but it is very difficult to read and navigate the pages. The text and pictures are overlapping each other and everything is shifted to the left side of the page, as if there is no formatting. We sent an email with a screen shot of the problem to i5Publishing. We didn't want you to worry my furiend. We always have you and your family in our prayers.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
It was another sunny, but chilly morning on our stroller walk. We saw our furiend, the yappy dog with his jogger. He barked at us and we hissed back. The little guy knows us know now and keeps his distance.

Yesterday afternoon, Whitey and Orangie finally ventured out through the back cat door to explore the backyard. This was a first and Mom was right there. The two kitties sniffed around the deck and the plants very cautiously, but neither of them tried to jump onto the fence. We have a cat fence for that reason, but they didn’t even seem interested. After a few minutes, Whitey turned around and headed back inside with Orangie right behind her. My Mom is hoping they’ll try again today and hopefully someday they’ll want to lay down in one of the cat beds on the deck and get some sun. I didn’t mind the company, but Callie ran back inside the house as soon as she saw them come out the cat door. MOL! Callie does not like change in her surroundings and routine!

My Mom had errands to run today, so we’re all catnapping in our beds by the windows.

We have our paws crossed that your Dad's unemployment application goes through without a hitch. We have Ling and your family in our prayers dear furiend.

Two Little Kittens =^.^=
~~~~~
Two little kittens, one stormy night,
Begun to quarrel, and then to fight;
One had a mouse, the other had none,
And that's the way the quarrel begun.

"I'll have that mouse," said the biggest cat;
"You'll have that mouse? We'll see about that!"
"I will have that mouse," said the eldest son;
"You shan't have the mouse," said the little one.

I told you before 'twas a stormy night;
When these two little kittens began to fight;
The old woman seized her sweeping broom,
And swept the kittens right out of the room.

The ground was covered with frost and snow,
And the two little kittens had no where to go;
So they laid them down on the mat at the door,
While the old woman finished sweeping the floor.

Then they crept in, as quiet as mice,
All wet with snow, and cold as ice,
For they found it was better, that stormy night,
To lie down and sleep than to quarrel and fight.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Callie and I were outside in our backyard bird watching this morning. Those crazy little birds were getting awfully brave, landing on the deck and chirping at us. My Mom didn’t like how close the birds were getting to us, especially when she saw us swishing our tails and licking our chops at them. That darned Mom made us come inside. (Sigh!) Oh well...I needed a nap anyway.

The sun is out today, but it was a chilly 38 degrees this morning. (I know, chilly for us!) We’re still hoping for rain but there is none in sight.

Hooray! Your Dad gets to apply for unemployment. We have our paws crossed that it goes smoothly!

Now how did sweet Ling get a bite on her back? Never mind. I know sometimes my sister Whitey takes mean swipes at me, but she hasn't left a mark on me yet! I always run to Mom. MOL!

Enjoy your sun dear furiends!

I love to be loved, but love when I choose.
I adapt very quickly, but prefer my routine.
I am curious to a fault.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
We missed all our dear furiends this weekend. Sunday was playoff football time around the house with lots of Dad’s friends making too much noise. Thank goodness football season is almost over. A cat can’t get a decent nap around here!

We are all very sad to hear of our newest Angels -Angel Sir Winston (200211), Angel Felix (c/o Q. Duchess 190247) and Angel Priscilla (59900). Our heartfelt condolences go out to their precious families.

It’s housecleaning day around here, so us kitties are all laying low. Hopefully when I wake up from my catnap, Mom will help me get caught up on answering my blogs. Wishing you a quiet and relaxing Meowday!

It’s cloudy and overcast today, but this morning it was a nice 50 degrees during our stroller ride.

We are all doing fine, catnapping in the windows. My Mom made a trip to Petco this morning, remembering to pick up a couple of bags of my favorite brand of tuna flakes. Mom took some treats next door over to Ebony and Sugar Bear. They were both sound asleep in the bay window. Ebony came over to rub against Mom’s legs and then promptly went back to his place in the window. Sugar Bear looked up and then went back to sleep! They looked so cute.

Oooh! We love warm stuff right out of the dryer ! Give sweet Ling a warm hug for us and let her know we have her in our prayers - your dear Mom and Dad too.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
My Mom was gone most of the day today, so I guess you could say we’re back to normal at our house. Last night we helped our Mom pack up the Christmas tree ornaments and lights, (Okay we watched and got in the way!) and put all the boxes back up into the closet until next year. We still have some unopened cat toys, so Catmas isn’t over yet for us kitties!

Our morning temps are back up into the mid 40’s so we went for a walk with Mom in our cat stroller. The creek is almost dry, so we’re taking water again to fill up the bucket for the animals.

Oh no! Ling hates her meds! Why didn't the vet give her liquid medication? Maybe your Mom could dissolve the medicine in warm water and give it to Ling with an eyedropper? We feel so bad for your dear pawrents. We know how hard it can be to pill a cat! We have our paws crossed.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Well, our household is getting back to normal now that the lost white kitty Powder, is back at his loving home. Powder’s family sent a bouquet of flowers to Mom with a note from “Powder” thanking her for letting him stay here. MOL!

It was a chilly 38 degrees here this morning, but warmed up quickly. The creek by our house is almost dried up, so hopefully we’ll get some rain again soon.

Mom is washing our cat bedding today, particularly the bedding in the outside cathouse. You never know when the cathouse might get a new boarder! Don’t say that in front of my Dad! Hee, hee, hee!

We are so happy to hear Ling is doing well and no more episodes.We all hate the vacuum monster too, but ever since I was diagnosed with feline asthma, Mom carts out that monster every day whether we like it or not! We have all of you in our prayers. Give your sweet Mom and Dad warm hugs for us.

We hope your dear Mom is able to get Ling to take her medicine. It's never easy, is it?! Give your pawrents big hugs for us. You kitties are very lucky to have such a loving family.

We have wonderful mews! My Mom was able to scan the white cat all by herself last night and he had a microchip. Mom was elated! She wrote down the microchip number and being that it was too late to call the lady from Alley Cat Allies, she went to a website called “Pet Microchip Look Up” and lo and behold, the cat was registered with “Home Again Rescuers.” Mom called the 800 number, they took the information and said the cat had been reported missing ten days ago and his name was Powder. The operator took Mom’s name and number and told her to wait by the phone. Five minutes later a man called saying Powder was his cat and his two year daughter was missing her kitty terribly. Powder is an indoor cat, a part of their family for eight years. The owner said Powder follows him outside only when he gets the mail and there has never been a problem. But that day at the mailbox, a cat came by and Powder and the cat had a big fight and chase. The owner searched everywhere, but couldn’t find Powder. It turns out Powder’s house was only a mile and half from our house. The owner and his daughter jumped in their car and came to pick up their furbaby right away. The daughter cried tears of joy and now Powder is back home where he was missed and is loved very much. The owner told Mom Powder will no longer be allowed outside. My Mom showed him the cat fence in our backyard and he was very interested. Don’t you just love happy endings?

Thank you for all your prayers. They were indeed answered last night!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
We still haven’t been able to scan the lost white kitty for a microchip, since the lady from Alley Cat Allies couldn’t make it to our house yesterday due to several emergencies. So Mom is going to borrow the scanner from her again later today. The good mews is, the white cat likes the big cat carrier in the garage. When Mom opened the garage door this morning, the white cat eventually came out of the outdoor cathouse and made his way back into the cat carrier. The cat is not as scared of Mom as before, so hopefully she’ll be able to get close enough to get a reading. We’ll keep you updated.

We are so sorry to hear about Ling. My Mom read the news on FB. I, Whiskers had the same kind of breathing attack during the night a few months ago. My Mom took me to the ER Vet too, where I was stabilized. The next day Mom took me to our regular vet where I was treated with steroids for 10 days. I also have an inhaler in case of another emergency. Your poor Mom must have been so scared. We sure will keep Ling and your pawrents in our prayers. Since I was diagnosed with asthma, my Mom has to bring out the vacuum monster every day. We have mostly carpet in our house. Mom thinks hardwood floors would be easier to keep dust and cat-hair free.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
It was a busy day yesterday with my Mom setting up a cat carrier big enough to try to trap the lost white kitty that is staying in the outdoor cathouse right now. Mom got closer to the cat yesterday, but she noticed the cat never makes eye contact with her. The cat keeps his eyes down to the ground. Mom is a bit afraid to reach out to touch him (or her). But if she can get him in the cat carrier, that would be wonderful. The cat is eating well and staying warm at night in the cathouse.

The lady from Alley Cat Allies is expected to come to our home today, to try to scan the lost kitty for a microchip. The white cat has been asleep in the cat carrier in the garage all day, so we are waiting.

We are all fine. Mom went to visit Ebony and Sugar Bear next door and they are happy as kittens! We are still having cold nights and mornings, but the weather should be warming up next week.

We're keeping sweet Rosie in our prayers!

Why not just move in to an animal shelter? But my future wife wouldn’t go for that. Though I’m pretty sure she could move into a shoe store no problem.”- Jarod Kintz

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
This morning was a very cold 29 degrees! That’s chilly for us. The roofs were all white when Mom and Dad went on their morning walk. It was too cold to take Callie and me in the stroller. Today is Dad’s last day of vacation. It’s back to work on Monday for him!

Our new outside cat is still sleeping in the cathouse, but Mom hasn’t been able to get close enough to him yet. He doesn’t hiss or growl - he just runs away when Mom gets too close. She is taking it slow and easy, but feels confident she’ll be able to get him.

We have Rosie in our prayers dear furiend.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
The mornings here have been especially cold. It was 31 degrees this morning and tomorrow will be in the 20’s. Yikes! That is very chilly for us Northern Californians.

My Mom bought a heated cat mat for the cathouse outside where our new lost furiend is staying. He or she seems to be very comfortable in the cathouse and eating quite well. So far my Mom has not been able to get close enough to the cat with the microchip scanner. She is hoping the cat has a microchip. Keep your paws crossed.

Oh dear fureind! We have sweet Rosie in our prayers. Give your pawrents warm hugs for us too.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Long time no meow! We hope you had a wonderful holiday with your family and furiends.

We are all doing fine. There is new cat living in our cathouse outside. He or she is a very large (maybe 20+ pounds), solid white, shorthaired cat that doesn’t appear to be feral, just lost and scared. My Mom is in contact again with Alley Cat Allies, hoping we can find this kitty’s home. Mom hasn’t been able to get close enough to trap the cat, but the cat eats very well and is staying warm in the cathouse for now.

No rain here for a while, but it has been very cold with highs only in the low 50’s. Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy Mew Year!

The Cat Carol ♪
~~~~~
The cat wanted in to the warm warm house,
but no one would let the cat in
It was cold outside on Christmas Eve,
She meowed and meowed by the door.

The cat was not let in the warm warm house,
And her tiny cries were ignored.
'twas a blizzard now, the worst of the year,
There was no place for her to hide.

Just then a poor little mouse crept by,
He had lost his way in the snow.
He was on his last legs and was almost froze,
The cat lifted him with her paw.

She said "Poor mouse do not be afraid,
because this is Christmas Eve.
"On this freezing night we both need a friend,
"I won’t hurt you - stay by my side."

She dug a small hole in an icy drift,
This is where they would spent the night.
She curled herself 'round her helpless friend,
Protecting him from the cold.

♪ Oooooo

When Santa came by near the end of the night,
the reindeer started to cry.
They found the cat lying there in the snow,
and they could see that she had died.

They lifted her up from the frozen ground,
and placed her into the sleigh.
It was then they saw the little mouse wrapped up,
she had kept him warm in her fur.

"Oh thank you Santa for finding us!
"Dear cat wake up we are saved!"
..."I’m sorry mouse but your friend has died,
there’s nothing more we can do.

"On Christmas Eve she gave you her life,
the greatest gift of them all."
Santa lifted her up into the night sky,
and laid her to rest among the stars.

"Dear mouse don’t cry you are not alone,
you will see your friend every year.
"Each Christmas a Cat Constellation will shine,
to remind us that her love’s still here."

Oooooooo ♪

We apologize for not pawing by the past few days. My Mom is helping her relatives with her Uncle’s funeral arrangements. Mom will be leaving the 26th of December, coming back late on the 27th. We are all doing fine. Our Dad will be staying home to take care of us.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
My Mom received bad mews about her Uncle passing away. Thank God, when Mom visited GM in November, they all made a trip out to visit him in Palm Springs. It seems their visit was a good bye. My Mom will be going back to Palm Springs for the funeral, and then coming home- still not sure about the date yet. We’ll let you know.

My Mom went to Petco AND PetSmart today, looking for the purrfect cat toy for Callie (Trying to get Callie to EXERCISE! The vet said Callie needs to exercise more and lose a pound.). MOL! We are all having a blast with the toys. Now if we can only convince Callie to play with us!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
We had a lot more rainfall than was predicted last night. My Mom, Callie and I went to check the creek this morning and the water level is back up to over half full. Hooray! We’re expecting another storm on Friday and sunshine for the weekend. The weatherman keeps reminding us the drought is nowhere close to being over. We would need a few more winters like this one. Oh well. But at least we’re on the right track!

My fursister Callie had a routine check-up appointment at the vet today. Callie is fine, but she gained a whole pound! Yikes! The vet told Mom to watch Callie’s weight and try to get Callie to move around more. Good luck with that Mom! Mom is determined to get that extra pound off of Callie before her next visit. I told Callie to drop and give me five push-ups! Of course Callie ignored me. MOL!

The sun was shining in the afternoon, but rain is expected tonight. My Dad had an appointment this morning with the surgeon who fixed his broken ankle over a year ago. After x-rays and a check up, Dad’s ankle has healed fine! He just needs to keep exercising his ankle- furever! I told Dad, “No Pain, No Gain!” MOL! As long as it doesn’t affect me!

About our finest blessings all year through,
We focus on our family and our furiends,
And appreciate the gift of knowing you!

Dear Angel Rhuby and family
We’re sorry for not pawing by yesterday, but the weekends seemed to be the time for unexpected holiday company around here. We wouldn’t mind it if we didn’t have to always hide. Mom says we need to work on our holiday manners. I stayed at the top of the stairs to keep an eye on my Christmas gifts under the tree. MOL! Whew! They were all still there when I checked!

It’s raining here today and is supposed to rain all week long. The storm is not as bad as last week. The creek by our house went down considerably over the weekend, but this morning it’s filling right back up.

Oh dear furiend, we are so sorry to hear your doggie crossed the Rainbow Bridge. We hope the precious furbaby wasn't in a lot of pain. Give your pawrents a comforting hug for us. We'll light a prayer candle for your angel doggie tonight. God bless your sweet family. We'll be praying for all of you tonight.

Recipe for Christmas All Year Long =^.^=

Take a heap of kitten-like wonder
That opens up our eyes
To the unexpected gifts in life—
Each day a sweet surprise.

Mix in fond appreciation
For the cats whom we know;
Like festive Christmas candles,
Each one has a special glow.

Add some giggles and some meows,
A dash of Christmas food,
(Amazing how a piece of catnip pie
Improves our attitude!)

Stir it all with feline kindness;
Wrap it up in love and peace,
Decorate with optimism, and
Our joy will never cease.

If we use this healthy recipe,
We know we will remember
To be in the Christmas spirit,
Even when it's not December.

The Origins Of Cats And Dogs =^.^=
~~~~~
It is reported that the following edition of the Book of Genesis was discovered in the Dead Sea Scrolls. If authentic, it would shed light on the question, "Where do pets come from?"
~~~~~
And Adam said, "Lord, when I was in the garden, you walked with me everyday. Now I do not see you anymore. I am lonesome here and it is difficult for me to remember how much you love me."

And God said, "I will create a companion for you that will be with you forever and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will know I love you, even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish and childish and unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourself."

And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam. And it was a good animal. And God was pleased.

And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and he wagged his tail. Adam said, "But Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and all the good names are taken and I cannot think of a name for this new animal."

And God said, "Because I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him DOG."

And Dog lived with Adam and was a companion to him and loved him. And Adam was comforted. And God was pleased. And Dog was content and wagged his tail.

After a while, it came to pass that Adam's guardian angel came to the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam has become filled with pride. He struts and preens like a peacock and he believes he is worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught him that he is loved, but no one has taught him humility."

And the Lord said, "I will create for him a companion who will be with him forever and who will see him as he is. The companion will remind him of his limitations, so he will know that he is not worthy of adoration."

So God created CAT to be a companion to Adam.

And Cat would not obey Adam.

And when Adam gazed into Cat's eyes, he was reminded that he was not the supreme being. And Adam learned humility.

And God was pleased. And Adam was greatly improved.

And Cat did not care one way or the other.

A Christmas Poem for Kittens =^.^=
~~~~~
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
no creature was stirring—except one juicy mouse.
The cheese was left out on the table with care
by Old Tom who had hopes the mouse would come there.

Tom hid on the bread box; he narrowed his eyes.
That mouse who came running would get a surprise!
“Come closer, come hither,” the old kitty purred.
When the mouse came a-dashing, Tom said not a word.

The cheese was so luscious, all yellow and crumbly;
Tom watched the mouse eat it, waiting his turn quite humbly.
“The more he eats now,” Tom thought with a grin,
“the fatter my tummy when nap time begins.”

The mouse he did fatten; the old cat did wait,
And at around midnight, a feast Old Tom ate.

Now here is the moral for all little kittles:
The fatter the mouse is, the plumper your middles.
The plumper your middles, the deeper the laps;
The deeper the laps, dears, the longer your naps.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
The rain is coming down like cats and dogs here today. (Okay, maybe just dogs!) While Mom was on the computer, we lost power a couple of times, but Mom has learned the hard way to always back up her files - like every minute right now!

Mom got an emergency phone call this morning from the next-door neighbor. Sugar Bear has escaped out the front door, but Mom found her right away in the cathouse in our front yard. Mom was able to grab her and take her back home. They were both soaked! Sugar Bear’s new Mom is an older lady and moves very slow. Sugar Bear still seems to want to get outside every now and then. Mom thinks it will just take time. Ebony was sitting in the bay window, watching the rain and looked like he was smiling at Mom and Sugar Bear! MOL!

We hope you are all safe and warm in your furever homes.

A CAT'S CHRISTMAS =^.^=
~~~~~
'Twas the night before Christmas
and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,
not even a mouse

'Cuz the cat had pounced on him
and tore him apart -
Ate his mousey intestimes
and chewed up his heart.

Kitty thought he heard sleighbells,
which made him take pause-
He stopped daintily licking
the blood from his claws.

"Must be Santa," thought kitty
(that quite clever cat)
'Cuz nobody else climbs down
the chimney like that.

Indeed it was ol' Santa,
so jolly and fat
With a huge load of presents
and all for the cat

"Wow, the best Christmas ever!"
Kitty thought with a purr,
Then he coughed up a hairball
and shed some more fur.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
My Mom finally put some catnip filled mousey toys under the Christmas tree to entice us. I’m proud to meow I was the first to brave under the tree, followed by Callie and Orangie. Whitey watched us for a long time from the staircase, but she finally couldn’t resist. Whitey got within a few feet of the tree, but that mean ole Callie begin to growl at her. Later in the evening, Whitey came back down and finally made it under the tree on her own. My Mom is keeping the tree filled with cat toys. So far none of us has toppled the tree over. We all know Santa Paws is watching. MOL!

The big storm is on schedule to arrive here early tomorrow morning. On our walk this morning, we passed a corner where people could fill up sand bags. We feel pretty safe where we live. Mom is a little worried about the winds that are coming, but she put some strong stakes and rope around the butterfly tree she is worried about. It would have to rain awfully hard and long for the creek to pose a problem to the homes next to it. We’ll let you know what happens. Fortunately Ebony and Sugar Bear will be watching the storm from their window, like us!

Ha, ha,ha! My Mom sometimes calls Callie a Sour Puss too! Glad you all had a fun catnip pawty!

THREE WISHES =^.^=
~~~~~
An old lady is rocking away the last of her days on her front porch, reflecting on her long life, when --
all of a sudden -- a fairy godmother appears in front of her and informs her that she will be granted three wishes.
"Well, now," says the old lady, "I guess I would like to be really rich."

*** POOF ***
Her rocking chair turns to solid gold.

"And, gee, I guess I wouldn`t mind being a young, beautiful princess."

*** POOF ***
She turns into a beautiful young woman.

"Your third wish?" asks the fairy godmother.
Just then the old woman's cat wanders across the porch in front of them.
"Ooh -- can you change him into a handsome prince?" she asks.

*** POOF ***
There before her stands a young man more handsome than anyone could possibly imagine.

She stares at him, smitten. With a smile that makes her knees weak,
he saunters across the porch and whispers in her ear:

"Bet you`re sorry you had me neutered."

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Not too much happening here today. My Mom took Callie and me for a walk in our stroller this morning. There are still puddles in the creek, but we’re expecting rain tomorrow. My Mom moved the bucket of water by the creek that she fills every day. She moved it further away from the creek, just in case we get a lot of rain the next few days. We haven’t seen any deer in a long time, but we always see our doggie furiend and his jogger. We just meow and wave at the doggie as he barks at us!

None of us kitties has been brave enough to go under the Christmas tree yet, but we are all watching it from afar. I keep checking to see if any of the presents have my name on them. MOL! We hope you all have a warm and cozy day.

We'll keep Percey in our prayers sweetie. We're glad your Mom got her order done on petco.com. My Mom has never ordered online at Petco. Petco is the closest pet store to us, so that's why Mom shops there all the time. We hope you guys don't get snow yet! Brrrr!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
The rain has cleared up for now, but we’re expecting a big rain and wind storm this Wednesday through Friday. The weatherman on the mews said to take in any Christmas decorations that might blow away. Yikes!

We had unexpected company at our house this weekend, so I know I have a lot of catching up to do. We hope you all had a nice relaxing weekend. Our house is empty once again, with just us cats and Mom. Now the dreaded vacuum monster is let loose once again.:(

The creek by our house hasn’t dried up, but the water stopped flowing. Now just a lot of puddles remain in the creek. This next storm should get it flowing again.

Callie and I are sitting in the sun in the backyard today, while Whitey and Orangie are basking in the window upstairs. Ebony and Sugar Bear are doing really well, enjoying the Christmas decorations in their new home.

We have Percey and your family in our prayers sweet furiend. Give your Mom a warm hug for us.

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

Little Paws Prayer =^.^=
~~~~~
This is a prayer for little paws
All up and down the land,
Driven away, no friendly voice
Never an outstretched hand.

For weary paws of little beasts
Torn and stained with red,
And never a home and never a rest,
Till little beasts are dead.

Oh God of homeless things, look down
And try to ease the way
Of all the little weary paws
That walk the world
today.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
The rain has finally let up; it has been on and off all day with intermittent sun. My Mom couldn’t wait to check the creek with us this morning. Callie and I loaded up in the cat stroller and away we went. The walking trail was covered with a lot of debris from the trees, but the happy mews is the creek is flowing again! Whoo hoo!! Not much, but the water was moving. We got a break today, but more rain tomorrow. The rain did cause a lot of problems for many people, so the break we’re getting today is well timed. Everyone is cleaning up today. The drought here is nowhere near over, but it’s a start! Baby steps!

When we were coming home from our stroller walk, we saw Ebony and Sugar Bear sitting in their bay window, looking happy and dry. We waved our paws at them! My Mom is going to take Ebony and Sugar Bear’s Mom out Christmas shopping tomorrow. I’m working on my wish list so my Mom has it before they leave. MOL! While they’re gone, us cats will have time to peek at our gifts. I know they’re here somewhere!

My Dad got his car fixed! Hooray! The initial estimate of 1500 dollars was knocked down to 650! Whoo hoo! It was a problem with the Oxygen Sensors. We’re hoping the car can make it another two years before Dad retires.

We hope your Mom is feeling better today. Give her a warm hug for us. And we hope the kitties are behaving today!

Baggage (The Meaning of Rescue) =^.^=
~~~~~
Now that I'm home, bathed, settled and fed,
All nicely tucked in my warm new bed,
I'd like to open my baggage,
Lest I forget,
There is so much to carry,
So much to regret.

Hmmm...Yes, there it is, right on the top,
Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss,
And there by my perch hides Fear and Shame.
As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave,
I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain.
I loved them, the others, the ones who left me,
But I wasn't good enough - for they didn't want me.

Will you add to my baggage?
Will you help me unpack?
Or will you just look at my things,
And take me right back?
Do you have the time to help me unpack?
To put away my baggage, to never repack?
I pray that you do - I'm so tired you see,
But I do come with baggage,
Will you still want me?
