Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
We wanted to share a lovely Christmas song with you. Visit catcarol.com to watch the poignant musical video. It brought tears to our eyes.

We left a vote with purrs, hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need. We’ll meow at you in a few days.

-:¦:- Faith makes all things possible, hope makes all things work, love makes all things beautiful; may you have all three for this Christmas. MERRY CHRISTMAS! -:¦:-

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 ♪

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
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.

We are so happy to hear you kitties got a fun new fluffy bed tunnel! Sounds like fun!

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!

Yummy! Seafood Paella sounds delicious! Your Dad is a great chef! Give your sweet pawrents warm hugs for us.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
We know your precious doggie is in a better place, because you and Angel Finster are there to keep her company and show her the way around Heaven! We'll be sure to look you up when we get there! (If we get to Heaven! Yikes!) Mom says all pets get to Heaven!

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!

My sister Callie has a check-up visit to the vet tomorrow. We’ll try to paw by in the evening.

We are praying for Queen Duchess and Queen MerryBelle to feel better, along with so many of our very dear furiends.

The Christmas Gift of Knowing You =^.^=
~~~~~
The Christmas season fills our hearts with joy;
Bright, happy days bring special kinds of pleasure.
We're wrapped in the excitement of it all,
The sights, the sounds, the smells, the tastes we treasure.

Yet when we have some quiet time to mew
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.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!

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.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Oh no! We are sorry to hear your doggie is not feeling well. We hope the vet can help her. We'll be praying for her sweetie. We'll keep Nosey (love that name!) and Rosie in our prayers too. Maybe Rosie stubbed her toe on something? Thank you for the angel dust sweet furiend. It always helps so much!

The big rainstorm is over, leaving us with intermittent showers today. And it’s chilly outside. We took a short ride in our cat stroller to check the creek. Yippee! The creek is over half full and flowing nicely. Now if only it will last for a while. We have our paws crossed!

It’s still dark and gloomy outside, so Mom has the Christmas lights on for us while we catnap and dream of Santa Paws. We hope your Friday is a happy one!

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.

- by Hadley Mae Carlisle

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 Rosie is okay and your Mom too! Rosie bit her?! We'll keep both girls in our prayers.

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!

We have a silly cat joke to hopefully make you smile. :)

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!

“When the man was disgraced and told to go away, he was allowed to ask all the animals whether any of them would come with him and share his fortunes and his life. There were only two who agreed to come entirely of their own accord, and they were the dog and the cat. And ever since then, those two have been jealous of each other, and each is for ever trying to make man choose which one he likes best. Every man prefers one or the other.”

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.

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?

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
The rain here hasn’t let up yet. Today we have strong winds too. The power went out at our house three times today. The first time lasted for an hour. I sat by our Christmas tree wondering where the pretty lights went! When the power came back, the Christmas lights scared me and Mom laughed as I scrambled up the stairs. I’ll get that ole tree later. Hee, hee, hee...

My Dad’s car should be ready this evening. My pawrents will go get it when Dad gets home from work. I’ll let you know tomorrow if the news was good or bad. I’m just hoping the silly car repair doesn’t cut into the kitty Christmas budget. MOL!

Wow! Rosie and Percey must have been running at full speed. I guess your sweet Mom is just glad nobody was hurt. (Except the pretty China closet!) We hope your pawrents can get it fixed without too much of a problem. Thanks for the angel dust sweetie. You're such a good furiend!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
It has been raining buckets since 4:30 this morning. Dad left for work early because he knew all the crazy drivers would be out and some of the roads flooded. He was right, but he made it there safely. His car is still in the shop getting worked on. The problem seems to be with the fuel in his car running too rich. (Whatever that means!) My pawrents have had the same mechanic for 20 years, so they trust him.

Since we are trapped inside the house and it’s very dark outside, Mom has us cats helping her put up Christmas decorations. Okay, we’re just supervising. MOL! Mom got worried when she couldn’t find me this afternoon, but she found me catnapping in the box with the Christmas tree blanket! I was really trying to find my Christmas gifts. Hee, hee, hee!

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
We apologize for the short, late blog today. Dad’s car still is not fixed. It turns out the problem is more serious than was first diagnosed. We’ll know more tomorrow.:(

We’re expecting a lot of heavy rain tomorrow, so that’s the good mews as long as it doesn’t flood! Of course that means us cats are all stuck inside the house. Maybe Mom will start putting up the Christmas decorations!

We attended Queen Kelsee’s Coronation today and it was lovely as always. It’s always nice to see our CC furiends all decked out in their elegant finery!

We're glad to hear your sweet Mom is feeling better. I bet your Christmas tree looks lovely. We hope the snowflake ornaments fit. Maybe around the base of the tree. One for Angel Finster would be purrfect!

happy first day of december!
we miss our angels too and janet misses one who came into our family suddenly and then 4-5 years later died of stomach cancer! not good, but during that time it was her who loved janet un-conditionally during the short span of time and slept with janet all the time like sandy does....well sometimes that is if she's pooped out and lately stays with janet till near midnight then wants out into the living room and spends the rest of the night out there. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
♪ It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man’s snoring. He got into bed and bumped his head and couldn’t get up in the morning. ♪

We all got up early this morning to watch the rainfall. Exciting stuff for us Californians! We have our paws crossed that it lasts for a while, although some places are already reporting flooding. These humans are never happy! We hope all our furiends are safe and warm today.

We'll keep your dear Mom in our prayers sweetie. We're happy to hear you guys got a little Christmas tree. It sounds just like our tree! Give your Mom a warm hug for us.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Whoo hoo! We’ve been getting a sizable amount of rain since early this morning. It’s supposed to continue off and on until Wednesday. The creek by our house is still dry, but we have our paws crossed.

Ebony and Sugar Bear’s pawrents came home last night from their holiday vacation. When my Mom was getting ready to leave, Ebony took a flying leap from his cat tree and landed in my Mom’s arms. Mom says she wants to teach us how to that! Good luck with that Mom. MOL!

We know your dear Mom is so very sad from missing her Finster. It is especially difficult during the holidays. Give your Mom a warm, kitty angel hug for us. We hope she feels better from her awful cold soon. We always have your family in our prayers dear furiend.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, with lots of leftovers today. We had a nice celebration here at home. Our pawrents had car problems the day before Thanksgiving, but they decided to not let it spoil our holiday. Monday will be here soon enough!

My Mom is still cat sitting for Ebony and Sugar Bear next door. Their pawrents will be home tonight. We are scheduled to get a lot of rain the next few days, starting tonight, but we’ll believe it when we see it!

We have your sweet Mom in our prayers and hope she is feeling better soon. Give her lots of purr therapy.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Our house smells like pies baking today as our Mom gets ready for Thanksgiving. Tomorrow our pawrents have Thanksgiving brunch in Santa Cruz with Dad’s brother and their family, so we’ll be pawing by late.

Mom bought a separate boneless turkey breast to bake for us cats, without all the spices. She’s cooking us potatoes and peas as a side dish. My tummy is growling already. Not sure what she has planned for our dessert. (Maybe mousey pie?!) Of course we have to share with Ebony and Sugar Bear since Mom will be cat sitting for them.

We are expecting temperatures in the high 60’s on Thanksgiving Day. We wish all our furiends had sun too, but we sure could use some rain!

We have your sweet Mom in our prayers. We know how awful it is to be sick during the holidays. :(

A THANKSGIVING FABLE
by Oliver Herford

It was a hungry pussy cat,
upon Thanksgiving morn,
And she watched a thankful little mouse,
that ate an ear of corn.
"If I ate that thankful little mouse,
how thankful he should be,
When he had made a meal himself,
to make a meal for me!
Then with his Thanks for having fed,
and thanks for feeding me.
With all his thankfulness inside,
how thankful I shall be!"
Thus mused the hungry pussy cat,
upon Thanksgiving Day.
But the little mouse had overheard
and declined (with thanks) to stay.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
The sun was back out today; the light rain we had is over. My pawrents were out collecting turkeys at the turkey donation drive held at Dad’s high school yesterday. It went pretty well. The weather was nice so lots of people came out to donate food. My Mom baked cookies to give out and there were many other treats there for all the nice people.

Our next-door neighbors will be going out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday, so they asked my Mom to cat-sit for Ebony and Sugar Bear. Whoo-hoo! Maybe she’ll take me over for a visit!

We're glad to hear your pawrents are feeling better. Give them warm hugs for us.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
My Mom was gone again all day yesterday (sigh!), but we think she was out Christmas shopping for us. We hope!

It is a very cloudy, overcast day with a light rain expected. Perfect catnapping weather. Dad went with us on our cat stroller walk this morning and we saw our furiend the yappy little dog and his human jogger. The jogger just runs by us and waves, now that she knows the stroller has two vicious cats inside. MOL! The creek is still dry, so Mom fills the bucket by the creek with water since it appears someone is drinking it. We haven’t seen any deer in ages.:(

Oh no! We are so sorry to hear your pawrents have head colds. We hope they get some rest and feel better soon. We'll be praying for them dear furiend.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
The weather report got it wrong again today. Today we got the rain we were expecting on Tuesday. We’ll take it!

My Mom had the vacuum monster loose downstairs, so we were all catnapping upstairs together. The vacuum monster always has a way of making us cats suddenly the best of furiends - under the bed that is!

Give your sweet Mom an angel kitty hug for us. My Mom only puts a small Christmas tree that fits on top of the piano ever since our GP died a few days before the holidays. :(

True Cat Story - by Greg Tamblyn
~~~~~
My friend Harold’s two cats have the run of his place, and like many cats, they tend to get into mischief whenever they feel like it. The younger black one is especially curious, and is mesmerized by the refrigerator. Whenever Harold opens it, the black cat will weave his way through Harold’s legs, stick his head and front paws into the bottom of the open fridge and start snooping around.

One day Harold was in a hurry, and didn’t notice that his cat, in that slinky, quiet way cats do, had actually sneaked all the way in, on top of the veggie compartment. When Harold hastily closed the door, his kitty was imprisoned in the cooler.

Now this could easily have been a tragedy, with Harold returning hours (or days) later to find his cat on ice in the kitty morgue. Fortunately for his feline, however, Harold felt a need for the fridge a few minutes later.

He tells it this way...

“Nothing,” Harold says, “absolutely NOTHING that has ever happened in your life, prepares you for opening the refrigerator and seeing something move.”

MOL! =^.^=

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
It was kind of hard to get to my blogs today with the devastating news of the passing of two beloved members of our CC family. The only consolation for us is that we really learn to appreciate having a place to grieve with so many furiends. We hope and pray Boo Kitty and her family, and Bella and Button’s family can feel the love and warmth flowing to them right now.

The weather here is dark and very windy, but no rain yet here. Just very dreary outside. We are all inside catnapping. Stay safe and warm dear furiends.

Give your sweet Mom a soft hug for us. We know Angel Finster is watching over her.

Hi Angel Rhuby and family!
Well, Mom left us all alone this morning to run errands, but not before taking Callie and me on our morning stroller walk. It was a bit chilly for us at 50 degrees, but we know that would be a heat wave to a lot of our furiends back east. We are expecting rain tomorrow, hoping for at least a half an inch. We’ll take whatever we can get.

Ebony and Sugar Bear are doing fine at their new home next door. While Mom was gone last week, Ebony did escape once from his house, but he came right over here to his empty cathouse and waited until my Dad found him. Dad was even able to pick up Ebony, put him in a cat carrier and take him back home. My Mom says that was a miracle!

We were all catnapping today while the sun was still out. Whitey and Orangie were in the upstairs window and Callie and I were out in the backyard. Our cat life is back to normal.:)

We are so sad to hear how sad your dear Mom is. Give her a comforting hug for us. My Mom has two of her furbabies ashes on the fireplace where she can talk to them every day. Just remember...“Those we have held in our arms for a little while, we will hold in our hearts furever.”

The pea soup sounds delicious. Your Mom is quite a cook!

WHY DO CATS DO THAT? (by Amy Shojai)

KNEADING -
There are many names for this common rhythmic paw-pushing kitty behavior — treading, making bread, even “pawtycake.” But one thing is clear, the behavior takes hold when felines are very young, as kittens knead against mom-cat’s breasts to stimulate milk flow. When adult cats knead, it generally reflects deep contentment and safety, and yes — love. Cats typically target soft objects such as fuzzy blankets, pillows, or a beloved owner’s lap.

I apologize for not meowing at you sooner, but Mom has been trying to get caught up with all the housework we left her. MOL! We are so happy to be back!

WHY DO CATS DO THAT? (by Amy Shojai)
~~~~~
PRIVACY ISSUES -
Why do some cats immediately seek out their humans the minute they head into the bathroom? First, a closed door is a challenge and an affront to a curious cat which is one reason why you’ll see furry paws reaching under the door or cats racing to join their people in the bathroom. More importantly, the bathroom gives cats a captive audience as people glued to the facilities aren’t able to move away.

To Those Who Love and Those Who Love Me

When I am gone, release me, let me go — I have so many things to see and do.

You must not tie yourself to me with tears. Be happy that we had so many years.

I gave you my love, you can only guess; How much you gave me in happiness. I thank you for the love you have shown.

But now it is time I traveled alone. So grieve awhile for me, if grieve you must, Then let your grief be comforted by trust,

It is only for a while that we must part, So bless the memories within your heart,

I will not be far away, for life goes on, So if you need me, call and I will come. Though you can not see or touch me, I will be near.

And if you listen with your heart, you will hear; All my love around you soft and clear.

And then, when you must come this way alone, I will greet you with a smile and "Welcome Home".

COVERING POO -
Owners take for granted that all cats naturally choose to cover potty deposits but this isn’t the case. Some cats — especially unowned roaming felines — may not cover at all as uncovered feces can announce who owns the territory. Some indoor cats also want their potty graffiti seen and admired by the other cats or humans. Though if mom-cat is fastidious about covering her mess, her kittens will copy-cat the behavior.

(My fursis Whitey goes above and beyond at covering up her “business.” My Mom bought her a litter box with high walls, so the kitty litter doesn’t end up covering the entire room. Whitey likes to kick up her heels!)

It’s been a busy day around here with house cleaning. My Mom is washing all our cat beds and blankets, so we are able to help her with the laundry as it comes out of the dryer. Aw! Nice and fresh, just the way we like it.

Our temps are back in the high 70’s, which is a bit warm for November. All of us are enjoying catnapping in the sun. My Mom broiled chicken breast for all us today and she took a bowl next door for Ebony and Sugar Bear.

FLIPPING -
Why do cats throw themselves onto the ground at your feet and flip back and forth? Sure, sometimes it is because a cat is under the influence of catnip but more often, rolling back and forth places a cat in a vulnerable position, and is a way for cats to request attention. If you grant the kitty’s wish and fuss over it, your cat knows to do this again the next time he wants your love.

ELEVATOR BUTT -
You’ve probably seen many cats perform an “elevator butt” pose with their front-end down and tail flagged high. In some instances, it is the equivalent of offering to shake hands as felines sniff each other’s anal areas to say howdy. When your cat jumps into your lap, turns around and raises its tail, he or she is offering you the not-so-pleasant invitation to scratch that hard-to-reach itchy spot at the base of the tail. Intact female cats also do the elevator butt posture to entice male cats to get romantic!

The sun was shining today, no more rain for the foreseeable future. The rain we did get on Friday soaked right into the ground. The plants and trees look happy, but the creek by our house is still bone dry. My Mom took Callie and me out for a walk in our cat stroller and with the time change this weekend, it’s now much lighter outside when we walk, so that’s nice. Now we are all helping our Mom get ready for her trip to San Diego. I like to follow her around the house. MOL! My Mom calls me her little shadow.

We are all doing fine. Whitey and Orangie were catnapping in the sun upstairs. My Mom went to visit Ebony and Sugar Bear yesterday and they are as happy as can be. Mom took the neighbor a Kitty Feather Wand Cat Toy to play with them. The neighbor liked the cat toy because she can sit down while she plays with the cats. Ebony still likes to jump on my Mom’s lap for cuddles and Sugar Bear likes to roll on her back so Mom can tickle her belly.

Whoo hoo! We love to hear great mews! Finster is eating his new food. That's wonderful. Maybe it will take a little more time for him to like the dry food too. Baby steps! We have our paws crossed for him.

HEAD BONKS -
The first three months I had my cat, her head turned pink from head-bonking my lipstick. Rubbing behavior, which includes the forehead, cheeks, and full-body slams, is called bunting, and it transfers the cat’s signature smell onto objects to mark territory. That means head bonks are kitty compliments declaring you to be so important, he’s marked you as his personal property.

WHY OWN A CAT? =^.^=
~~~~~
There's a danger you know,
You can't own just one, for the craving will grow.
There's no doubt they're addictive, wherein lies the danger
While living with lots, you'll grow poorer and stranger

One cat is not trouble, and two are so funny,
The third one is easy, the fourth one's a honey,
The fifth is delightful, the sixth ones a breeze.
You find you can live with a house full, with ease.

So how 'bout another? Would you really dare?
They're really quite easy, but Oh Lord, the hair!
With cats on the sofa and cats on the bed,
And crates in the kitchen, its no bother, you said.

They're really no trouble, their manners are great.
What's just one more cat and one more little crate?
The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty.
The floor is all footprints, the furniture's dusty.

The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care?
Who minds a few nose prints and a little more hair?
So let's keep a kitten, you can always find room.
And a little more time for the dust cloth and broom.

There's hardly a limit to the cats you can add
the thought of a cutback, sure makes you feel sad.
Each one is special, so useful, so funny,
The food bill grows larger, you owe the vet money.

Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay,
Except other cat folks, who live the same way.
Your lawn has now died and your shrubs are dead, too.
Your weekends are busy, you're off with your crew.

There's cat food and vitamins, grooming and shots
And entries and travel and motels, which cost lots.
Is it worth it you wonder? Are you caught in a trap?
Then that favorite comes up and climbs in your lap.

His look says you're special and you know that you will
Keep all of the kittens in spite of the bill.
Some just for showing and some just to breed
And some just for loving, they all fill a need.

Late evening is awful, you scream and you shout
At the cats on the sofa, who refuse to get up.
The cats and the cat shows, the travel, the thrills
The work and the worry, the pressure, the bills.

The Whole thing seems worth it, the cats are your life.
They're charming and funny and offset the strife.
Your lifestyle has changed, things just won't be the same.
Yes, those cats are addictive and so is the cat game!

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
Well, we had quite a Halloween night! My Dad thinks we easily had at least a hundred kids trick or treating at our door. My Mom had to make a run to the store when they ran out of candy! That has never happened before. It was raining off and on, but that didn’t stop the kids from coming. Mom and Dad took turns sitting out on the doorstep to give out candy so the doorbell wouldn’t freak us all out. My pawrents called it quits at nine o’clock because it was late and chilly outside. (They both had their rain gear on!) The kids out trick or treating that late were bigger kids, so Mom didn’t feel bad when she ran out of candy for a second time. Dad was sad there wasn’t any leftover candy, but Mom save a few pieces for him, much to his delight!

CC has been giving us some problems today, but we made it to Queen Carman’s Coronation this morning! She looked stunning, as did Queen Mimi and our new COTD nominee, beautiful Kelsee. November should another great month on CC!

Whoo hoo! Your Mom is going to PetSmart on Sunday. Make sure the kitties all get their lists ready!

THE SINGING CAT =^.^=
~~~~~
It was a little captive cat
Upon a crowded train
His mistress takes him from his box
To ease his fretful pain.

She holds him tight upon her knee
The graceful animal
And all the people look at him
He is so beautiful.

But oh he pricks and oh he prods
And turns upon her knee
Then lifteth up his innocent voice
In plaintive melody.

He lifteth up his innocent voice
He lifteth up, he singeth
And to each human countenance
A smile of grace he bringeth.

He lifteth up his innocent paw
Upon her breast he clingeth
And everybody cries, Behold
The cat, the cat that singeth.

He lifteth up his innocent voice
He lifteth up, he singeth
And all the people warm themselves
In the love his beauty bringeth.

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
Happy Meowloween! We are in desperate need of rain here and unfortunately for the trick-or-treaters it will be raining tonight. We might get an inch of rain, which is a lot for us. My Mom has lots of candy to give out, so she’ll be handing it out by the handfuls - much to my Dad’s dismay. MOL! We’ll all be hiding out upstairs under the bed. There’s no need for Mom to lock us in the room once we hear the doorbell. My Mom is being extra nice to us today because she knows it’s going to be a miserable evening for us cats. Halloween is a lot more fun at the CC Castle!

My Mom says thank you so much for the angel dust. Now she is assured a safe and happy trip! You are the best!

P.S. My Mom doesn’t leave for San Diego to visit GM until Nov. 8th- Nov. 15th. You’re not rid of us yet! We’ll be sure to meow good-bye to our CC furiends! =^.^=

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

Are you brave enough to enter the cat's dream? Read on for a Tail Raising Tale!

A Cat's Halloween Dream - Furball Fables
~~~~~
At this time of year, the veil is thin.
Into the cat's world another slips in.
A place to make fur stand on end.
Full of creepies real and some pretend.

Filled with strange and spooky things.
Some are dangling on their strings.
Impossible to give a name,
Scary, odd and unexplained.

So Fluff out your whiskers,
and curl up your tail,
while ghouls dance around you
and ghosties wail.

Oh be a brave and mighty cat,
least you be turned into a rat.
Through the magical realms you roam.
Til Kitty cats find their way home.

Perhaps it was no more than a dream.

Happy Kitty Cat Halloween!

Hi Angel Rhuby & family!
My Mom is getting ready for her trip to San Diego to visit GM, so we’re all helping her get the house ready for my Dad to take care of us. Dad can do it; he just needs lots of reminders. There are post-it notes going up all over the house. MOL!

This morning on our way home from our stroller walk, we were surprised to see Ebony and Sugar Bear sitting in our front yard! Mom put us in the house and then went next door to find out what was happening. Apparently the neighbors have a house cleaning lady who comes once a week. The cats had escaped through the screen door! The neighbor and his Mother were very upset, calling the cats in their backyard when Mom got there. They were very happy to see Ebony and Sugar Bear following my Mom back into their house. They all decided it would be a good idea to put the cats in a room when the housekeeper comes. Yay! A happy ending!

Oh no! How did Nosey get outside? We're glad she is safe! We had to laugh picturing your Dad with oven gloves on trying to get her in! We'll keep Finster and Percey in our prayers. We sometimes snub our wet food too, but it never lasts long. MOL!

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

Three Little Cat Ghosts =^.^=
~~~~~
Three little cat ghosts on Halloween night
Saw a witch and shrieked in fright
The witch just laughed and shouted, "Boo!"
One cat ghost ran home and then there were two.
Two little cat ghosts who shiver and shook
With every single step they took.
When the door opened wide
One little cat ghost said to the other...
I'm going home and stay with my furmother.
One little cat ghost can't have much fun,
so he ran home, and then there were none.
