About Me

Active within 337 Days

Hi! My name is ♥ Sagwa, Sasha, Hannah, Wooki ♥

I am a British Shorthair from Allen, TX

Nicknames: Yes, they call me soggy, mooooose, and sags.

Age: 12 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: I don't have front claws, but I still try to climb tree's to get to the birds. COTD 2/8/07, ACOTD 1/24/2012. THANKS SO MUCH!!

My favorite tricks and treats are: I fetch a ball, and I will snag a piece of yarn or ribbon. and I love turkey!

[SASHA - often come in a variety of sizes and shapes.. ...eager to please....very “caring” cats...are good listeners and love it when you talk to them....like to go on walks and spend quiet time with you. Origin: Greek... ..Meaning: Defending men; helpmate.]

Where I hang out: I hang out on the top edge of the sofa in the living room - better to see others from, you know, so I can swat at them!!

My favorite grubs: Science Diet Cat Food and I do love cat nip, but it turns me into a wild-cat, so I don't get it very often.

My pet peeves: I do not like it when a dog comes around .. You know who you are!! hmph!!

What I love about my owners: They are so loving and kind to me. They let me sleep in their beds, and they play with me a lot.

But, there is one thing that seems odd to this ole tom cat, My youngest family member has always thought I was a cow!! Can you believe that??? I mean I am a rather large cat, but it's in the genes, man! Not the food for heavens sake. If you ask her what I say, she says, of all things, MOOOOOOO!! [mew-mew]

My cat hobbies: Sleep and eat or sneaking out the front door and running from my family as they chase me. That is so much fun!!

Pet motto: Feed me and I will love you forever!! Sasha is my fur Sister. Her pictures are below. The Texas Trio Dogs can be seen on the dog channel at 28598. They are my cousins and they are scared of me and Sasha!!

Screammmmmmmmmm- mm! A blonde alien moved in .. she nips and barks and chases us! HELP!!!! SOSOSOSOS! IF you hear of a CandySugar .. run for your skin!!
CS went to live with Grammy and Papa (TheTrio)1/10, because our SkinMom is expecting a baby and she is too sick to care for a young pup. HURRAY!! we have a new Skin Sister, Marlee Faith 5/5/10!! Woohooo!!

Very Sad News, our FurDogSis, CS (153190 dog channel) has stage IV Cancer and is on comfort treatment only. 10/5/2011.

CandySugar went to heaven Friday, 10-7-11 @5:45p. She will be sorely missed by all.

6/25/12! - OH NO!! We got another Blonde living with us now. Her name is "Hannah!!" She's cute and little but .. we are not sure we like her, yet!

How We Met

I belonged to another person at first, then they needed to find a home for me, and he asked this family to take me and they said yes, so that is how I ended up with this wonderful family!!

We adopted a play-mate for me a couple of years ago, Sasha. Her picture is below.

I get into trouble sometimes for playing with her too ruff, but she is still my pal!

♥AUNT SAMANTHA KNIGHT 7/18/1998 to 8/18/2012♥
*~~~~~* *~~~~~~~~~~* *~~~~~* *~~~~~~~~~~* *~~~~~*

I come to you with still a heavy heart from the loss of my beautiful SAMANTHA #15442. She's been gone a whole year today 8/18, but it seems forever since I seen her last as well as petting her.

Thank you all for such loving support, gifts, flowers & prayers. You all are such good & understanding friends and I feel the love you leave in your blogs and brought more tears while reading them.

SPECIAL THANK YOU to the CMR Crew for the SHOUT-OUT for AUNT SAMANTHA!

The day before her traggic death, I was praising Aunt Samantha for how proud I was of her for her being age 14 & still so healthy for being a feral kitty. She did love her pettings, but hated being held. She was the last of the original little kittens that were brought here by her fur mama & fur dad in July 1998. We loved her dearly during her 14 years & 1 month of life with us.

Aunt Samantha was a gentle girl, but she was also very feisty when she wanted to be. She stood up to the raccoons that came & gone. She would actually leap from where she laid on the patio table & swat a raccoon as the raccoon would cover it's face for protection from Samantha. I thought a raccoon would hurt or kill Samantha, but never in a million years it would be two PitBulls! I thought our back yard was safe from dogs at the time.

I do have lots of sweet memories with and of her, but her death will always haunt me!

The first 3 pictures in the top row of Samantha's picture gallery were taken 8/17 the day before her death.

Here's a Girl Power Crew vote for you.

With Kitty Kisses & Loves,

Hi Sagwa , Sasha and Family
I love your profile pictures. Looks like you have a very big furamily too!

Yes, the heat is on! It has been a pretty hot 94' degrees today in the south. Sorry we're so slow getting around this week. Mama lost my little 3 mo old sister Mitsy for 2 days and was worried she might have been killed when Mama heard a major cat fight on Tues. But thank goodness it was a false alarm...Mama found her today under the neighbors storage shed. It is not fun being an outside kitty in this hot weather! We outside kitty's just try to find the coolest place we can and stay put. Our Mama was disappointed when her friends decided not to get Mitsy but get another kitty from CARA Rescue Shelter instead. They picked out an older kitty to adopt, but that's Ok, because we love Mitsy, and she'll be taken care of here, until we can find her a new home.

I feel very special that I have so many wonderful CC friends that cared enough to take time out of their busy lives to bring me special votes and well wishes for my COTD campaign. I was blessed with so much good food, gifts, toys and compliments. To me that's what CC is all about and it is an awesome feeling to be apart of this worldwide CC family. I feel very special to have received a COTD honor and I just want to share my joy with you. CC is a great big loving caring family, in which we are very proud to be apart of. =^.^=

Hugs and Kitty Kisses,
Snowflake

~Trixie's Tantalizing Animal Tales~ March 25th
Thank you for your visits & votes yesterday sweet furiends! I’m sorry our departure from Austria was slightly delayed but at least the questioning of Fluffinella, Mallow, & yours truly was fairly short once the Austrians got their cherished bell back. How did it get to the hotel in the first place? Well, our ornery friend Mallow is the only one that can truly answer that question but she’s been put in time out by her brother K Mike & won’t be available for questioning until he lets her out…MOL!
Okay now it’s time for that twist in my catpaign I promised you on the plane yesterday. Most of us share a fascination with the unknown. Thanks to this, as well as tremendous advances in technology, most of our planet has been quite thoroughly examined but some areas remain which are home to creatures that science has yet to encounter. Recently discovered animals number in the thousands but since I don’t have time for that I’ll be meowing about just a few that caught my interest & will include pictures too!
~GOLIATH BIRD EATING SPIDER~ I’ve opted to put this monstrous creature in for one very simple reason: it terrifies me!! The species was officially discovered in 2006 during an expedition to Guyana. It is a burrowing spider, feeding primarily on invertebrates, though it has also been observed eating small mammals, lizards, and venomous snakes (surprise surprise). Fully grown specimens can reach a horrific weight of around six ounces. Thankfully for us – and for any other creatures too large for the spider to eat – the goliath bird eater is a species of tarantula, and has relatively weak venom, which causes mild swelling and pain for a few hours. But the thing that poses the biggest threat to humans is the goliath’s ability to expel hairs from its body. These tiny, nearly invisible hairs float through the air, and have an awful tendency to stick in the eyes. EEEEK…can I open my eyes yet? (Shivers) That critter sends cold chills up my spine & makes me poofy! I think we need a cute animal to counteract that one…MOL!
~WALTER’S DUIKER~ Walter’s Duiker is a fascinating little creature, officially discovered in 2010 in the Dahomey Gap, West Africa. The species made its first foray into the world of science in 1968, when Walter Verheyen retrieved a specimen in Togo. This species of duiker is native to Togo, Benin, and Nigeria. One of the most interesting characteristics about the species is its small stature, measuring an average of only forty centimeters (sixteen inches) in height and typically weighing four to six kilograms. In addition to its small height, the duiker has hind legs which are longer than their counterparts up front. This is particularly interesting given that the duiker is not a grazing animal, and typically feeds on berries and other similar items of nourishment, which grow on plants.
Thank you for your generous & loving support of my COTM catpaign dear furiends! Have a magnificent Monday & I’ll see you again in the morning! ~Trixie~

~Shout-out voting today for WHISKERS #246313!
Happy Caturday everyone & thank you for your vote support yesterday! Are you ready for another zoo trip? I hope so because this is going to be a big one & you’ll be exhausted by the time we’re done walking around. I’ve taken the liberty of reserving rooms for us to stay overnight & have assured the hotel manager that all of us will behave. That’s a hint for anyone with unusual ideas again this weekend…MOL! Okay, I just got the green light for us to board the Cyclone Express tour plane so let’s get aboard because it’s going to be a long flight to Vienna, Austria to visit one of the must see places of the area, which is the Tiergarten Schönbrunn (the Zoo)!
Vienna's Tiergarten Schonbrunn offers one of the most unique and refined zoo experiences in the world. Originally constructed around the turn of the 17th century, this Austrian landmark is often considered as the world's first modern zoo. The zoo was founded by the husband of Empress Maria Theresa and was often frequented by members of the Hapsburg dynasty for their summer retreats. Today it still retains much of its original beauty and tranquil charm with magnificent 18th century buildings and a stunning botanical garden. The Tiergarten Schönbrunn was voted the best European Zoo in 2010. What makes this Zoo so special is the location, as it’s found inside the Schönbrunn imperial palace and gardens domain, so there’s plenty to see in the few square kilometers of open sky, trees, elegant gardens and magnificent architecture. The best things about Tiergarten Schonbrunn Zoo is the vast open space where animals roam almost free, with just a few cages for birds that would fly away if not restricted this way. If you bring the kits with you they’ll be delighted by the peacocks roaming at their feet and other curios animals that are walking together with the visitors. There are even visiting hours for feeding the animals! That’s the best thing about the Tiergarten Schonbrunn Zoo: it doesn’t look like a Zoo in most part, but more like an interactive educational school. If you don’t feel like visiting the Zoo you can always visit the Schonbrunn gardens because I guarantee you’ll like them too. Just make sure you don’t stand in the way of those practicing Yoga or jogging between the perfectly cut trees. There are other things to see at Schonbrunn domain besides the Zoo, imperial palace and gardens. On my list there’s the Gloriette gate, the labyrinth and the famous the Palm House. I don’t know about all of you but I’m excited to be going to Austria! We’ll be staying at the Hotel Bergwirt, which is pet friendly & enjoys a privileged location directly next to Schönbrunn Gardens. The unique character of this hotel, the informal atmosphere and the impressions of a beautiful city will make our visit an unforgettable experience. Thanks for coming along on my trip this weekend dear friends & for the wonderful support you’re giving me on my COTM catpaign. ~Trixie~

Happy Friday sweet kitties!! Today I’m doing a quick pounce through the community because mom has errands to run so I won’t be leaving any purrsonal notes with my daily blog. Get ready friends because I’m taking us to the dogs today with 3 tales of doggie furienship that will make you scratch your heads in wonder but also bring a smile to your face. Remember the biggest rodents in the world from the beginning of my catpaign? They’re featured again, only this time you can see what one looks like…MOL!
~DOG & OTTER~
When a sea otter pup was found abandoned on a building site in Wales, it was taken to a wildlife reserve to be fed and treated and returned to full health. The aim was to heal the otter and set him free again. After a few months at the reserve, the pup’s handlers decided he needed a playmate to use up some of his boisterous energy. Since otters have a nasty nip and are very inquisitive it was thought the perfect playmate for the pup would be a puppy. An eight month old Labrador called Molly was brought in and the two played together while the otter was taught to swim. The otter, called Geraint, is due to be released in the very near future.
~DOG & CAPYBARA~
Capybaras are the largest rodents in the world. Looking something like giant guinea pigs, they are native to South America and live in herds. At a tourist lodge in Peru, two animals – a capybara called Charlie and a dog called Pacho – were rescued at about the same time. Until he was rescued, Charlie had been kept as a pet by a local family. Capybaras, though cute, make poor pets, and so it was the intention of his rescuers to release Charlie – but he kept returning to the lodge in search of Pacho. These days Charlie and Pacho are inseparable companions. If Charlie goes too deep when the two are swimming, Pacho saves him – and in return, Charlie often scavenges food to share with Pacho.
~ORANGATAN & DOG~
Suryia, an orangutan, and Roscoe, a dog, were raised together in a South Carolina sanctuary. The two met when Suryia spotted the homeless Roscoe wandering into an animal centre. The keepers decided to adopt the dog, and allowed him to spend time with Suryia to give the primate some friendship. Orangutans are very intelligent, and prefer not to be on their own. The orangutan takes the dog for walks around the enclosure on a lead, and swims with him. There are also pictures online of the pair being taken for a ride on the back of an elephant, which also lives in the sanctuary. The two animals have become the subject of a book being used to raise money for their shared home.

Pics of these friends can be seen in my gallery! Thank you for your daily support of my COTM campaign dear furiends. Each vote you leave me is precious & most definitely appreciated. Make sure to get your comfy clothes & cameras ready sweet kitties because tomorrow we’re off to another zoo! Have a purrfect Friday!

Loving purrs,
Trixie

It’s the official start of spring today dear friends so help me wave good-bye to old man winter & welcome in the time when worms begin to emerge from the earth, ladybugs land on screen doors, green buds appear, birds chirp, and flowers begin to bloom. So far this week our weather here in northern IN is no indication of it arriving anytime soon though with the bitter mid 30 temps & strong winds. In other words I’ll be happy when they start reporting our weather without a wind chill attached…MOL!
Thank you for pouncing by with a COTM vote for me yesterday as I twisted my way into another area of unusual animal tales. I know that yesterday’s animal friendship stories were bittersweet to read about so today I’ve found two that have much happier endings & you can see their pics in my gallery.

~HIPPO & TORTOISE~
Owen the Hippo was separated from his parents when a tsunami wave washed him out to sea. After being found by wildlife rangers, he was taken to an animal sanctuary in Mombasa, Kenya. Owen’s handlers decided that he would share a habitat with an ancient 100-year-old tortoise called Mzee. It was reported that Owen behaved towards Mzee, a male, as if the tortoise was his mother. The hippo and tortoise would bathe and sleep together, and Owen would lick Mzee’s face and become protective if anyone approached the tortoise. Hippos generally remain with their mothers for four years, and Owen stayed with Mzee until 2007 when he was introduced to other hippos.♥

~DEER & GOOSE~
In 2011, at Forest Lawn cemetery in Buffalo, an unlikely partnership sprang up between a nesting goose and a deer. The Canadian goose laid her eggs in an urn and settled down to incubate them. At some point a male deer joined the female goose and began to act as a guard. Whenever people approached the nesting bird he would interpose himself protectively to ward off the threat. This strange behavior continued for three weeks until the goslings hatched. As soon as the mother goose began to move around with her babies, the deer wandered off into the forest, job well-done.☺

Those are some truly tantalizing tales that make me flip my paw at the naysayers that say animals don’t have souls or are stupid. These touching stories show intelligence, empathy & love that go beyond the boundary of species differences & shows that dissimilar purrsonalities can get along. I know I truly appreciate each of your distinctive purrsonalities when you pounce by to visit me & I look forward to your comments & updates. I’m sending each of you loving purrs of thanks for your support of my COTM campaign & will spin your way again tomorrow!

Sweet calico kisses,

Thank you for your visit & vote yesterday! Please remember to pounce by to visit Queen Josie Mae #193862 to see what’s going on at the royal hillbilly mansion each day while you’re prowling the community & keep our dear CC furiends & families in need in your prayers. Okay kitties…it’s time for me to move on to a different type of animal tale today so to begin I’ll paraphrase Thomas Hobbes: life in nature is a war of all against all – and it is (in general) nasty, brutish, and short. Competition between animals drives evolution, and will never be removed from life. Yet there are softer sides to being alive. Many animals are sociable – at least with their own kind. Occasionally, however, bouts of sociability break out between animals of different species, against all the laws of nature. Got you curious yet? MOL! Well this week I’d like to touch on some special animal friends that you wouldn’t normally think of’ hanging out’ together. Get ready for cuteness to go off the charts sweet furiends because these best friends are unique, unusual, & their stories (although short due to space) will touch your hearts!
~GORRILLA & THE CAT~
Koko the gorilla is one of the most studied primates in history. Her handlers have been examining her remarkable ability to understand language. Koko communicates in American Sign Language, and has been known to create her own terms for new items and ideas using signs she already knows (calling a ring a ‘finger-bracelet’ for instance). In 1984, Koko asked her trainers whether she might be allowed to keep a pet cat. She chose a grey kitten and called it All Ball. Koko nurtured All Ball as if it were a baby gorilla, and would appear distressed when parted from it. When All Ball was knocked down and killed by a car, Koko was seen to mourn the cat’s death, and use signs for ‘sad’ and ‘frown’ to describe her feelings. She has since had several more pets.
~ELEPHANT & SHEEP~
When Themba the elephant was a calf, his mother fell to her death. The orphan elephant was found and rescued by rangers at the Shamwari reserve in South Africa. At the reserve Themba was placed in a pen to protect him from other animals. Since elephants are social animals, it was decided to place a sheep called Albert in the pen to offer Themba companionship. At first the elephant made a game of chasing the sheep but the two eventually bonded and could be seen sleeping together at night. When it was time to begin preparing Themba for release, Albert was removed from the pen and Themba was introduced to more typical animals from South Africa but before Themba could be released he succumbed to a disease of the intestine. Albert the sheep has remained at the reserve.

Let’s have a group awwww…MOL! I’ve posted pictures of these special animal friends at the bottom of my page & will keep them there until the weekend so you can see their special friendship in action. Thank you for your support of my COTM campaign sweet kitties!

*Please paw COTD votes to PERCY #245206 today*
Good Morning & happy Monday everyone! Thank you for pouncing by to paw me your vote support & sharing my adopty day festivities on the 16th! After reading some of your comments from our zoo trip this weekend I now understand why the police dogs were watching us so closely. I thought I was a kitty that created havoc but it appears that I was surpassed by a couple of you this weekend…MOL! These ornery kitties wandered into the new, but still closed, animatronics display & caused an uproar with the staff & other zoo visitors. Guess you did make a lasting impression with your antics though because they put red marks beside your names & faxed them to all other zoos around the world…MOL! Okay kitties…I saw several of you swimming with the dolphins after their daily shows so thought I’d wrap up my hero animal series with two stories starring our aquatic mammal furiends.
~LIFEGUARDS SAVED FROM SHARK ATTACK BY DOLPHINS~
On Oct. 30, 2004 a group of lifeguards swimming off the coast of New Zealand were protected from a shark attack by dolphins. Lifeguard Rob Howes and three female lifeguards were on a training swim about 100 meters off Ocean Beach near Whangarei on the North Island. While they were swimming a pod of dolphins suddenly came steaming at them and started circling them. The dolphins bunched the four swimmers together by circling about 4-8 centimeters from them, and slapping the water with their tails for about 40 minutes. Owes drifted away from the main group when an opening occurred, it was then he saw a great white shark about two meters away. When the shark started moving toward the women the dolphins went into hyper-drive. Howes said, "I would suggest they were creating a confusion screen around the girls. It was just a mass of fins, backs and human heads. “The shark left as a rescue boat neared, but the dolphins remained close by as the group swam back to shore.
~MOKO THE DOLPHIN SAVES 2 STRANDED PYGMY SPERM WHALES~
In March 2008 at Mahia Beach, New Zealand, a dolphin named Moko guided 2 stranded Pygmy Sperm Whales to safety. The two pygmy sperm whales, a mother and her calf, were found stranded on Mahia Beach. Rescuers worked for more than an hour to get the whales back into the water, but the whales kept getting disorientated and stranded themselves four more times on a sandbar. It looked likely the whales would have to be euthanized to prevent them suffering a prolonged death, and then Moko came to the rescue. She approached the whales and led them 200 yards along the beach and through a channel out to the open sea. After the rescue, Moko returned to the beach and joined in games with local residents.

That’s it for hero animals right now kitties but I’ll meow more next month starring our own CC & DC furiends when I’m wearing April crown. Thank you for your solid & loving support of my COTM campaign dear furiends! Have a pawsome Monday!

Purrs & hugs,

Top O the morning & Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! I thank all of my bonny furiends for filling my pantry with goodies for my adoptiversary day yesterday & also for the outpouring purrs of love & vote support! Being furiends with all of you is better than finding that elusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow & a whole lot easier than catching a leprechaun…MOL! Well, tis the wearing of the green day kitties! The phrase "the wearing of the green", means to wear a shamrock on one's clothing & is derived from an Irish street song lamenting the repression of supporters of the Irish Rebellion of 1798 with the same name. Saint Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to pagans in the land. Betcha didn’t think I knew those little tidbits did you? I’m a kitty that’s full of surprises, plus my sweet mom is from Irish heritage so she helped…MOL!! Today I’m inviting you to rest your weary paws after a full day of walking around at the zoo yesterday. My sis Patches has whipped up some green tea, shamrock catnip cookies & a big pot of Irish stew for anyone that gets hungry today so help yourself & take it easy as I meow to you about one of the Brookfield Zoo’s most famous inhabitants.
~GORILLA SAVES TODDLER~BINTI JUA (whose name means "Daughter of Sunshine" in Swahili) is the niece of Koko, the gorilla world famous for learning American Sign Language. Her mother, Lulu, was originally from the Bronx Zoo and died on January 24, 2011 after residing at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. Her father is Sunshine (from the San Francisco Zoo). Binta Jue is a female Western Lowland Gorilla that lives at the Brookfield Zoo & received international attention when she saved the life of a small child. On August 16, 1996, a three-year-old boy fell 18 feet into the gorilla enclosure at the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. The child was lying unconscious when Binti Jua picked him up and protectively cradled him into her arms. The heroic gorilla gently carried the child to the zookeeper's door, where he could be rescued. Binti Jua had her 17-month-old baby, Koola, clutched to her back throughout the incident. The boy spent four days in the hospital and recovered fully. Binti Jua displayed an incredible act of animal altruism when she saved the life of this small child & has touched the hearts of people all over the world. This animal hero story is truly inspiring and Binti Jua is one of the most famous animal heroes ever known & even has her own Wikipedia page!
I’ll be wrapping up the hero series of my campaign tomorrow before I move on to some other interesting animal tales. I’m sending a little pot of gold nuggets (catnip candy wrapped in gold foil) home with each of you for being such sweet & loving furiends & to thank you for your sweet blogs & your votes of support this month! Have a blessed St. Patrick’s Day!

Purrs & hugs,

Happy Caturday kitties & thank you for your votes of support! I’ve been so busy with my catpaign that I almost forgot a very special day in my own life. Today is my adopty day…woohoo! Three years ago I was taken from a cage at a pet store by my sweet daddy & placed into mom’s arms. The first purr & kiss was all it took & here I am…MOL! Okay kitties, are you ready for another big day trip? This week we’re staying in the U.S. so we’re taking a charter bus driven by our own illustrious Thunderfoot aka Thundie. When the zoo staff found out I was bringing a bunch of kitties with me on this trip they said to make sure to show you this: (Trixie unrolls a sign & has Whiskers hold the other side.) *IMPORTANT NOTE*PLEASE DON'T FEED ANY OF THE ANIMALS, OR CHASE ANY OF THE NATURALLY ROAMING ANIMALS SUCH AS PEACOCKS, GEESE, THIRTEEN-LINED GROUND SQUIRRELS, AND OTHER CREATURES YOU'LL SEE AT THE ZOO.* Hmmm…it seems as though our reputations precede our arrival sweet kitties, which means they’ll be keeping a close watch on us…SIGH! Oh well, let’s climb aboard the Cyclone Express tour bus & I’ll plug in the short film about our destination. Thundie will be turning the bus north out of the parking lot because we’re going to Chicago to visit…the BROOKFIELD ZOO! Since the opening of Brookfield Zoo in 1934, the Society has had an international reputation for taking a cutting-edge role in animal care and conservation of the natural world. Among its historical firsts are indoor multispecies exhibits, zoo nutrition residencies, methods for animal husbandry, and medical care that includes successful brain surgery for a gorilla. Aware that the best way to view an animal is in its natural habitat, the Brookfield Zoo makes great efforts to recreate the native environments of its inhabitants. The Great Bear Wilderness offers one-of-a-kind vantage points for viewing bears, wolves, and bison as they roam the 7.5 acre exhibit. Spread across more than 216 acres, this zoo houses thousands of animals from around the world. Zoo residents live in specially designed, walk-through environments so visitors can view them in natural settings. You also don't want to miss the dolphins at Brookfield's Seven Seas Panorama when they put on shows daily at 11:30 & 2:30. Keep an eye out for roving naturalists who are dressed in bright green shirts. They often have "touch stations" and other things to look at and are always happy to share interesting information about the animals. Look out your windows dear furiends because we’ve arrived at the gate! I hope you’ve enjoyed my introduction to our adventure for the day.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the outstanding & warm purr-filled vote support you’re giving me for my campaign! Have a pawsome Caturday & hope you have a great time exploring the wonders of the Brookfield Zoo with me!!

Excited purrs,
Trixie

Happy Friday dear furiends & thank you for the vote you left in my collection box yesterday! Instead of another heroic animal tale today I thought I’d bring you some curiosities in the mews to get you psyched up for our next surprise zoo destination tomorrow. Let’s just hope the zoo animals are better behaved…MOL!
~SANDWICH-SEEKING BEAR CRASHES CAR~ (Denver Post-July 23,2010)
The Story family of Colorado got the surprise of their lives in July when the police called at 3:30am to inform them that a black bear had taken their teenage son’s car on a joyride down the street before crashing it into some trees, eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and proceeding to completely destroy the interior. This bear opened the door on his own & then somehow the door closed behind him. He probably panicked and started thrashing around, hitting the shifter and putting it in neutral. It rolled 125 feet down the hill near their home & crashed through several trees before stopping in the brush. The four way flashers were on & the bear was going crazy inside so he kept hitting the horn, alerting people in the area who then called the local authorities. Sheriff’s deputies had to tie a rope around the car door handle and open it from afar. Eventually, the bear came out and wandered off into the woods. The 2008 Toyota Corolla was called a total loss. The interior was ripped up, the dashboard was torn out, the windshield broken, and the airbags went off but no one was injured in the bear’s joy ride!
~LEMURS LOCKED UP AFTER CRIME SPREE~ (from Orange News- July 29, 2010)
Two escaped lemurs have been returned to an Austrian zoo after embarking on a week-long crime spree. The sneaky duo hot-footed it from Salzburg's Hellbrunn Zoo by dashing out of the door when their keeper walked in. It was then reported to authorities that they celebrated their freedom by attacking local residents' washing lines, turning over garden furniture, stealing fruit and harassing domestic pets, before winding up in a hotel bar. The hotel manager said, "I couldn't believe it when I came in for work in the morning. It looked like they were looking for something to drink. They were playing with the bottles, but I gave them a banana instead and quickly shut all the doors and windows." Keepers were then able to recapture the law-breaking primates, and have since renamed them King Julian and Maurice, after the ruler of the lemurs and his trusty sidekick in the film Madagascar.

WOW…now those are what I call some wild & crazy critter tales…MOL! Thank you for your daily support of my COTM campaign sweet kitties! Remember to dress comfortably tomorrow & bring along your cameras but please no climbing on the monkey cages this week. Yes, you know who you are…MOL! Have a fabulous Friday & I’ll see you bright & early in the morning!

☆Shout-out for SASSY #171904 today so please pounce by to paw her a vote☆
Good Morning & happy Thursday everyone! Thank you for pouncing by to paw me a COTM vote yesterday! It’s hard to believe it’s already the 14th!! Okay kitties; are you ready for my next heroic animal tales? This will be my last ones to present this week because my paws are itching to pounce to something tomorrow that doesn’t require tissues, especially since we’re down to the last 4 boxes in the case. Please come down from the cat tree Mallow, Fluffinella & Steve so that your romping won’t distract our other kitty listeners again today! Boo Kitty, Thank you for your help but I think the votes are flattened pretty well so you can come out of the collection box now…MOL!
Today I’ll start with…~PERSISTANT MEOWS~ WINNIE the hero cat saved the lives of her family! A gasoline-powered water pump in the family basement caused an odorless but deadly gas to fill the house. When Winnie sensed that something was wrong, she jumped on her owners’ bed & woke them up. She jumped, nudged and meowed relentlessly as the house filled with fumes. They said that Winnie's meows were similar to screams as she persisted in getting the parents awake. Meanwhile, the couple's 14 year-old-son lie unconscious in another room due to the toxic fumes. Because of Winnie's persistence, 911 was called and the family was treated and survived. HOORAY for Winnie!! She’s a true heroine in every sense of the word & has earned my purrs of respect for her deed!
Now we move on to a more unusual tale of heroism with…~LULU THE LIFESAVING PIG~
Perhaps my favorite rescuer is a pot-bellied pig named LULU….just because she’s unique! On August 4, 1998, owner Jo Ann had a heart attack in the bedroom of her vacation trailer at a Pennsylvania lake resort. After her collapse, her American Eskimo dog began to bark, but no one was close enough to respond. Lulu can't bark, but she did something much more daring! She scrambled through a tight "doggie door," cutting her protruding stomach in the process; then waited at the side of the road until she saw a car. She then waddled to the road and lay down right in front of the car. The motorist stopped for the prone pig and got out. LuLu then led the man to the house and the rescue. The owner of Lulu heard a man screaming through her window that her pig was in distress. She answered that, in fact, it was she who was in distress, and asked him to call an ambulance. Luckily, help arrived in time: doctors said that if 15 more minutes had elapsed she likely would have died.

Hmmm…makes you think twice about eating that roast pork dinner doesn’t it? MOL! Thank you for your daily votes of support & the purrs you’ve been giving me. Each one is appreciated & held close to my heart. Have a pawsome day!

Loving purrs,
Trixie

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend & are ready to start another work week. Thank you for your vote support yesterday! Please remember to pounce over to visit Queen Josie Mae #193862 at her hillbilly mansion! I’m glad that you found Aggie Kitty’s story of heroism & bravery as touching as I did when I read it the first time. She’s one pawsome kitty!! Today I’ll continue my heroic animal series but this one is about “man’s best friend” the dog. There are LOTS of heroic dog stories out there but I think this one will pull at your heartstrings & make you appreciate our doggie friends a little more.
~DEVOTED DOG~
This story is about HONEY, an English Cocker Spaniel puppy that was chosen as National Dog Day Hero Dog of the Year in 2006. On a crisp October day, Honey and her owner, Michael Bosch, were heading out in Bosch’s SUV when the sunlight temporarily blinded him. He miscalculated a turn between his driveway and a deep ravine next to it. The vehicle dropped 50 feet into the ravine, rolling 5 times before finally landing on its roof. Bosch was pinned to the vehicle by a tree that had crushed his legs, and he was now hanging upside down. Still recovering from a heart attack he suffered two months prior and located at least a quarter mile from his nearest neighbor, he realized that his only chance of survival was Honey. Only five months old at the time, Honey was able to escape the vehicle through the broken and gaping windshield. Honey traveled through at least a half a mile of thick, dense forest, eventually ending up at the doorstep of a neighbor, Robin Allen. Honey pawed at Allen desperately, whimpering and urging her to follow her. Allen said that Honey was literally “bringing me to the accident scene. She was directing me.” When they returned to the site of the accident, Allen said Honey was “pacing like a worried parent.” Allen alerted rescue crews, and by the time they arrived, Bosch had already spent nearly 8 hours hanging upside down and injured. Bosch’s pulse had weakened and paramedics thought he wouldn’t have made it much longer without Honey’s quick heroism. Probably the most amazing part of the story is that Bosch had adopted her from a local rescue shelter only two weeks prior to the accident.
Pass the Kleenex sweet kitties because that story makes me tear up every time I read it! That’s one heroic, devoted & loving pup; especially considering her young age & that he’d only had her for 2 short weeks at the time she did this courageous, life-saving deed for her master. Truly a good dog story!
Have a pawtastic Monday & thank you SO much for pouncing by with your loving support of my COTM campaign!

We were very sad to hear about Goldie crossing so suddenly too. Her mom has been through SO much the past year & we're saying prayers for her to be strong so she can get through this latest blow to her life.

YAWN…that was a long trip we took to Singapore Zoo yesterday, but it was loads of fun! Thank you for pouncing around the world with me & for leaving me your great comments & votes of support!! I have been negligent in my duties because (embarrassed grin) I forgot to thank Boo Kitty for the fabulous Zoo photo I’ve been using on the weekends! Thank you Boo Kitty & mom for putting me in front of the majestic giraffe!! OK…I see a lot of you still getting sleep out of your eyes , just like me, because we mysteriously lost an hour somewhere during the wee hours. Hmmm… must be the work of those sneaky time trolls again…MOL! Anyway, I think a big donut & cup of catnip tea might help wake me up so Patches lovingly whipped up a giant batch of her homemade catnip cake donuts & tea for everyone! Please help yourselves to both & then settle back on the beanbag chairs I’ve got scattered around the living room because today I start my tales dealing with heroic animals, which is purrfect considering this is International Day of Awesomeness! Many think that only dogs can be heroic but I’m here to tell you that any animal on earth can be a hero/heroine if they need to be & here are the first of many amazing animals I found to bring into the spotlight!

AGGIE THE CAT-Aggie is a cat who started out life completely unwanted. Born without eyes, Aggie was rescued by a foster family who only planned on keeping the cat only long enough to find someone who would embrace her disability. However, Aggie won over her foster parents with her spunky personality, realizing that her lack of sight was no hindrance. One night, when her owners were fast asleep, Aggie awoke to the sound of someone stealthily sneaking into the house through a downstairs window. Aggie realized the intruder was unfamiliar, so she immediately attacked, digging her claws into the intruder’s face. The screams from the intruder awoke the family, but by the time they came downstairs to investigate, he had fled. The only evidence they were left with was a shoe on the windowsill and blood on Aggie’s paws.

HOORAY FOR AGGIE!! It’s totally awesome that she recognized the threat & acted on it! This is one truly amazing kitty & she gets a huge paw up for her determination, protectiveness, bravery & willingness to do what she could to protect her family. Just because she was born without eyes didn’t deter her from doing an act of love for her family’s welfare & that in itself is truly remarkable!
Do you have an interesting tale of heroics to share? Please send it to me so I can include it in my royal blogs if I have the honor of being crowned your queen next month.

Happy Friday everyone! Thank you for the fantastic paws of support for my catpaign so far! Well, since this is the last work day for many people, & we’re looking forward to a relaxing weekend, I’m meowing a very curious tale for you to think about so we can discuss it on our road trip to the zoo tomorrow. ~THE CAT BURGLAR~
Authorities in Sao Paulo, Brazil, have announced that they are trying to get to the bottom of the case of the small white cat that was taken into custody while sneaking back and forth through one of the gates of the Alagoas state prison. When local authorities apprehended the kitty on her way in on New Year's Eve, they found a cellphone, drills, small saws and other contraband taped to her body. According to the newspaper O Estado de S. Paulo, all of the medium-security prison's 263 inmates are suspects. What are we to make of this? First, obviously, we hope that the kitty is OK and in good hands. No news yet on this from the authorities. Beyond that, some key questions:
1. Why are the authorities making the whole story so public, rather than just watching the various comings and goings of the cat, attaching a GPS to her, or whatever? If she's just an innocent participant, she could surely have led them very quickly to, at very least, the people on the outside.
2. So, either: a) the authorities did not follow her, which means that they are either very dumb (unlikely) or are already in possession of a great deal of information that they haven't revealed, or b) they followed the cat but she didn't lead them anywhere of interest.
3. If b), then this cat clearly knows what she's doing and is doing a lot more than she's letting on. And since it's unlikely that any of the prisoners are up to her level of intelligence, we can only assume that it is she who is the brains behind the whole operation. If that's the case, then ...
4. Since cats created the Internet and are behind the entire world's greatest conspiracies, we must assume that this kitty has others in a large, possibly global, network who are conducting similar operations at other prisons.
5. With that in mind, why is she smuggling drills, saws and a cellphone into this prison? So that a few hoodlums can escape? Unlikely.! Cats aren't interested in fostering petty criminality. So we must look to other possibilities, like:
a) work is underway to create tunnels for feral cats to turn prisons into cat sanctuaries
b) a large network of cats is preparing medium and high-security prisons in countries in the Amazon region to imprison people who are leading the destruction of the rain forests
c) the metal fences around the prison are being adapted into a large-array radio telescope to communicate with cats elsewhere in the cosmos
d) all of the above.
We will bring you further information as soon as it becomes available. Meanwhile, please keep a close eye on your cats at home and report any unusual activity.

Thoughtful purrs,
Trixie

*~~~~~* *~~~~~~~~~~* *~~~~~* *~~~~~~~~~~* *~~~~~*

♥ We come to you with heavy hearts that mom had to make that hard decision with having the help of TaumKat’s Forever Sleep as he went peacefully this morning at 11:30.

♥ Mom had called one of the vets; Dr. Bert, who makes these special house calls when requested. TaumKat’s cancerous tumor under his tongue was bad enough that his constant drooling became discolored with blood and the tumor had grown. Though he still looked fairly healthy otherwise, his poor mouth was not.

♥ TaumKat had lived with us for the past year and he basically got along with most of the outside kitties. After his Big Boy surgery, he had calmed down considerably and quit his tom-cat ways with the spraying and yowling.

♥ Thank you to Boo Kitty 14855 & Momma Jane for the beautiful Forever Sleep Frame with TaumKat’s photo which you can now see in place of my profile photo.

Hi Trio Plus
Well now let me tell you about that catnip being knocked over...MOL! I was famous, or maybe it was infamous, about climbing into mom's plants when I was a kitten. Please don't ask how many times mom found dirt scattered everywhere or plants knocked over because I ran out of toes to count them on...MOL! Anyway, when she made my avatar she thought it was funny to put the catnip plant knocked over with dirt on the floor to show the purrsonal experiences I gave her. Bad mommy...MOL!

Thanks for the daily vote support dear furiends!

Purrs & hugs,
Trixie

~*~It’s a shout-out pawty! Please pounce over to paw MARCUS #229838 a vote today so he can bask in the warm spotlight of COTD fame tomorrow!~*~
I think we were all very impressed with the world’s best mouser, Towser, & I don’t see her record being broken any time in the near future but I loved reading your comments about her prowess & deeply appreciate your vote support!
Well kitties…today will be the finale for the world’s largest & smallest animals so that tomorrow I can pounce in another direction. I’d hate for anyone to get bored, plus the fact that I, the Calico Cyclone, can’t sit still in once place for too long…MOL! Discovering a new adventure is always at the top of my daily agenda & having you pounce along with me makes it a zillion times more fun!
The largest animal on Earth is the BLUE WHALE. Blue whales can measure anywhere from 75 feet (23 m) to 100 feet (30.5 m) from head to tail, and can weigh as much as 150 tons (136 metric tons). That's as long as a 10-story building and as heavy as about 112 adult male giraffes! These days, most adult blue whales are only 75 to 80 feet long; since whalers hunted down most of the super giants. Female blue whales generally weigh more than the males. The largest blue whale to date is a female that weighed 389,760 pounds.
THE CAPYBARA is the largest living rodent in the world & is related to guinea pigs. Its common name means "master of the grasses". Capybaras have heavy, barrel-shaped bodies and short heads with reddish-brown fur on the upper part of their body that turns yellowish-brown underneath. Adult capybaras may grow to 4.3 ft. and weigh up to 140 lb! They have slightly webbed feet, no tail, and 20 teeth.
EEEK…even this tormentor of rodents won’t mess with those big monsters! Now it’s time to present some of the smallest living creatures on earth so let’s go take a peek but please control your urge to pounce…MOL! THE PYGMY MARMOSET is the smallest monkey in the world. They live in family groups led by a parental couple & most of the time the male parent carries the offspring! The young go to the mother during feeding but they depend on dad for transportation. After a few months they will jump around looking for food and excitement on their own.
FENNEC Foxes are the world's smallest fox. These small nocturnal fox are found in the Sahara of North Africa. Fennec Foxes are smaller than housecats so they’re a favorite mean for the large eagle owls living in the area ! Living in sandy, dry regions, their large ears keep them cool and help them hear rodents. Their ears are bigger than their faces which make them absolutely adorable!
That concludes my meows about the world’s smallest & largest animals. Tomorrow I’ll give you a little comic relief before we take our next weekend trip to visit another zoo. Thank you for your votes & meows of support for my COTM campaign dear furiends!

Sweet calico kisses,

~PLEASE PAW MAGGIE #78317 A SURPRISE SHOUT-OUT VOTE TODAY & don’t forget to visit our beautiful Queen JOSIE MAE #193862 as you make your rounds.~ I thank you from the bottom of my little heart for the vote of support you sent my way yesterday!!
Good Morning & happy Wednesday dear furiends! Well we’ve got snow! Good thing we made our trip to the farm yesterday because things aren’t looking good for any road trips for me today. I really don’t mind though because I need to get even with my little sis Fluffers! Did you see what she did when we went in the barn visiting Big Jake the horse yesterday? While I was meowing about him that little scamp hid behind the bales of straw & waited until I wasn’t paying attention. Then she sprang out & jumped on my back yowling “giddy-up Trixie” & proceeded to kick me in the ribs. I guess I’m lucky she wasn’t wearing spurs! Well time to move on so off we go to today’s topic.
Do you think you’re a good mouser? Now we all like to catch mice but I dare any of you to top today’s cat record! I must say that I’m humbled by the pawsomeness of…THE WORLD’S BEST MOUSER & think you will be too! TOWSER, a long-haired tortoiseshell female, was the resident feline pest control expert at Glenturret Distillery (located on the banks of the Turret River two miles north west of Crieff in Perthshire, Scotland ) from 1963-1987 & was an officially recognized record holder. Her record breaking victim count was 28,299 mice which were laid out on the Still House floor each morning to be inspected by the stillman. The auditors for the Guinness book of records observed Towser's prowess over a number of days and her total kill count was estimated statistically. She was commemorated by a bronze statue at the visitor's center at Glenturret and her story was featured on Blue Peter (the world's longest-running children's television program). Her paw prints also decorate the label on a bottle of Fairlie's light Highland Liqueur as a tribute to the 24 year service of this illustrious kitty! Since her death she has been replaced by 2 other kitties, ginger-and-white Dylan, from Cats Protection & former stray Brooke, a semi-long-haired black and white female from Cats Protection but so far their record is nowhere near hers.*Added note* Cats Protection finds homes for around 60,000 cats every year in the UK through its nationwide network of 260 voluntary-run Branches and 29 Centers.

I told you today’s story was humbling! Can you imagine catching over 28,000 rodents in your lifetime? It sure blows my cat catching stories into the wind…MOL! Remember I’m collecting YOUR unique talent/heroic stories to present next month if I have the honor of becoming your queen! Thank you for supporting me during my COTM campaign dear furiends! Each vote is scooped up with happy paws & a purr of love from my heart.

Snowy hugs,
Trixie

THANK YOU FOR YOUR VOTE OF SUPPORT YESTERDAY!
Mom has been glued to the weather channel all morning watching the winter storm approaching our area. They’re saying we could get anywhere from 6-12 inches of the white stuff before it’s done but that’s mild compared to some predictions we’ve seen for other areas along its path. Take care & stay safe dear furiends!! Okay kitties, time to quit thinking about snow for a while & get changed into some farm clothes. I’ve got my overalls, boots & straw hat on for our venture today so I hope all you girl kitties left the heels in the closet or you’re going to sink in the mud as we head to the pasture to see the world’s record holding…TALLEST/LARGEST HORSES! The Belgian horse breed is one of the largest breeds of horses in the world today. A testimony to the great strength and size of this particular breed of horses is RADAR (world record holder until 2007). Radar stands at a height of nineteen and a half hands high & weighs more than a ton! In his prime Radar consumed almost 60 pounds of grains and hay, and tanked up to twenty gallons of water, each day! Wherever Radar was displayed there are sign boards warning visitors to be wary of the horse, but he is mostly well-behaved & earned himself the title of the gentle-giant. Radar loves to do display shows, and has been featured on many television shows and at various stores. Now that’s a BIG horse!! I think he could ride every single one of us on his back & still have plenty of room for a human rider…MOL! But he’s nothing compared to the current World Record holder, BIG JAKE! Big Jake was raised in Ostego, MI from a weanling & still resides there today. His owner said he was extremely hard to hold on to when he was young!" Fortunately, the 2600-pound horse has calmed down a bit in his age. He is friendly with all the other animals on the farm, has a great temperament, & works hard when he is harnessed to a wagon. There's a lot of accommodation to be made for such a large animal, too! His stall is 20X20 feet when an average stall is about 12X12 feet & when he needs transported they have to use a semi-trailer. Big Jake is on a strictly healthy diet, consuming 1 1/2 bales of hay and 40 quarts of oats per day! His family is proud to hold the current record & welcomes the curious visitors that come by to see him.
I don’t know about the rest of you kitties but my neck hurts from looking up at these HUGE steeds & I need to take a nap to rest it! Thanks for joining me on our visit to see two of the world’s largest horses! Thank you for your support of my COTM campaign & for all the wonderful comments you’ve been leaving each day. Please pounce over to visit our beautiful Queen Josie Mae #193862 before you head to your napping spot!

Happy Monday sweet furiends! There nothing like getting a late start on the day, & that’s exactly what I meowed at mom when she was checking her e-mail instead of getting my important campaign work accomplished…MOL! Thank you for the votes you pawed my way yesterday! Each one is treated like a national treasure in my memory archives & is deeply appreciated!Okay sweet kitties…I’ve told you about some of the world’s smallest animals so I think it’s only fair to devote some time to a few of the world’s largest ones. We’ll start off with a common critter that many of you have in your own homes…although probably not as big as this one…MOL!
WORLD’S BIGGEST DOG- Over the past two odd decades there have been many dogs which have been featured in the Guinness book of world records for their extremities. Leading the list of such hounds is HERCULES, an English Mastiff, which was inducted in the Guinness book of world records back in 2001 for being the world’s biggest dog, weighing 294 lbs. and having a 39 inch broad neck. Hercules was three years of age, and has paws that are the size of a softball! He may be huge, but is very well-behaved. As a puppy Hercules was large, but his owner didn’t think that he would go on to become the world’s biggest dog. As far as diet is concerned, his owner maintains categorically that he has never served Hercules with anything extraordinary and that Hercules’ size is totally natural. They have fed him what they would have otherwise fed any normal dog. Hercules is a dog that enjoys the limelight too! It was in 2001, when Hercules was declared as being the world’s biggest dog that his owner came to know about the limelight-loving nature of this pooch. Hercules would go wagging to the interviewers and in front of the cameras, which made him a lovable animal to everyone he met. He was featured on many news and daily shows, and was even featured in a few commercial ads. Whatever it was, the world’s biggest dog was willing to try out new things, much to the surprise and approval of its owners. Later on, due to his loving nature, the world largest dog was doing shows and was booked for various birthday parties. He was also allowed to meet and get photos shot with children who came to see him from around the world. Hercules, in true sense, stands as a testimony to the phrase “the gentle giant”!

WOW…I’m SO glad that our family dog Sammie didn’t want to achieve a world record as one of the biggest dogs. I feel small compared to her as it is so can only imagine looking up to one the size of a Shetland pony…MOL! Tomorrow we’ll be heading to to see another world record holder but this one lives on a farm so wear your jeans & mud boots! Thank you so much for your loving votes of support for my campaign. Have a pawsome day dear furiends!

Thank you for your loving paws of support yesterday as I started off on the campaign trail Trio Plus! Today I promised you a Zoo visit so take a seat on our plane & get ready for a unique travel experience as we head to Argentina! Our pilots today are Hot Rod & Winslow with special thanks to K Pete for making sure the planes were ready! We’ll be met at the airport by Lola & the BA kitties so they can show us the way to the LUJAN ZOO! (The planes soar into the sky & the kitties all settle back to await their arrival in Argentina.)
While we’re in the air let me tell you a little bit about the LUJAN ZOO in Argentina. Often referred to as the most controversial and dangerous zoo in the world, Lujan Zoo is one of the few places in the world where you can have a relatively safe close encounter with some of the most vicious wild animals on Earth. Located about 58 kilometers from Buenos Aires, the Lujan Zoo is reachable by bus from Plaza Italia. The trip takes about an hour and a half in a comfortable, air-conditioned coach with reclining seats. When we get dropped off on the side of the highway, don’t panic because we are in the right place. All we need to do is cross under the overpass and look for the zoo sign. Upon arrival at the Lujan Zoo, you might think you’ve come all this way to experience what might appear to be nothing more than a petting zoo, but the truckload of freshly-butchered meat passing by will make you start asking yourself questions. Rather than the standard miniature horses and timid domesticated animals you might expect, at Lujan you’ll get up close and personal with carnivorous lions, tigers and pumas, not to mention camels and elephants. The monkeys go about their day and survey the human onlookers with disinterest. One of the first cages nearest the entrance is inhabited by lion cubs as well as dogs. For the first few months, the lion cubs will learn obedience training and other important behavior from the domesticated dogs. The dogs will help the lion cubs learn to be more docile in this setting where they will interact with humans. At present there are several lion cages that you can enter, with lions grouped and separated by age. It’s interesting to see how their personalities and behavior develop. Prior to entering any of the cages, visitors are instructed not to make fast, sudden movements or excite the animals in any way. Young children/kits may enter the cage with dogs and cubs with adult supervision, but they’re not permitted to enter the cage with the adult lions. While words cannot effectively describe the Lujan Zoo, it is simply something that must be experienced to fully appreciate.
(The planes touch down & all kitties debark.) Well kitties there are Lola & the rest of the BA kitties waiting to take us to the buses that have been reserved for our trip to the beautiful & unique LUJAN ZOO. Have fun with the animals & I’ll meet you back here promptly at 7 for our return flight.

Happy purrs,

Thanks for your paws of support Trio plus :)

Happy March 1st everyone! It’s time to wake up because there’s a calico cyclone pouncing into your homes & my happy twirls & spins will twist you around until you’re dizzy…MOL! Most of you have watched me grow up here on CC after I was brought to my furever home on March 16, 2010. I was a wee little thing then but my catitute was already full grown & I made myself right at home in my new surroundings! And then I started pouncing around CC…MOL! Needless to say I made my catitude known around here too but you accepted me with open paws & loving furiendship that will forever be cherished. Okay…before I get teary eyed I’d better concentrate on my campaign.
To start off my COTM campaign I’m going to tell you about some of the world’s smallest animals. Please watch where you’re pouncing today & don’t swish your tails too hard so we don’t hurt any while we’re looking at them! We’ll start off with…the WORLD’S SMALLEST DOG IN TERMS OF HEIGHT: the smallest living dog is Boo Boo, a long-haired female Chihuahua who proves that good things come in small packages. Boo Boo is just 4 inches tall and weighs in at a mere 2 pounds. She lives in Raceland, Ky., with her owner. WOW…only 4 inches tall means she could be mistaken for a rodent if a cat has bad eyesight…MOL! The next dog on our visit today would have the same problem so please keep your claws retracted kitties or we could have a lawsuit on our paws! The WORLD’S SMALLEST DOG IN TERMS OF LENGTH: The smallest dog in terms of length is Heaven Sent Brandy, a female Chihuahua who measured 15.2 cm (6 in) from the nose to the tip of the tail on 31 January 2005. Brandy lives with her owner in Largo, Florida. Now we’ll move on to some petite pooches that deserve our respect for their abilities! WORLD’S SMALLEST WORKING DOG isTiny Lucy! Meet 6-inch, 2.5-pound Lucy from New Jersey who Guinness recently named the world's shortest working dog. Besides being incredibly cute and tiny, this Yorkshire terrier is also a therapy dog. Since we started with dogs today it’s only fair for us to end with our own species…MOL! Now we move on to…the WORLD’S SMALLEST CAT: Mr Peebles, a 2 year old domestic cat of Central Illinois holds the Guinness Book of World Records award for the smallest living cat (his small stature is due to a genetic defect). Weighing in around 3lbs he is 6.1 inches high this is definitely the smallest cat I’ve ever seen! Mr. Peebles also has his own Facebook page so pounce over to check it out.
And so my first day of campaign chaos ends & the tiny dogs & cats can go back to napping. Since tomorrow is Caturday we’ll be taking off to visit a zoo someplace in the world so plan to be at the community airport early to get a good seat on one of our planes, & don’t forget to bring along your camera. Thank you for your paws of support & have a beautiful day!

Loving purrs,

~...>*<...~♥~...>*<. ..~♥~...>*<...~♥~. ..>*<...~♥~...>*<...~

♥ Mom came out to feed us Friday, afternoon @ 4:00, but I wasn't hungry. Mom didn't think too much of it cuz a few of us wasn't ready to eat. Mom came out later @ 7:00pm & I was still not wanting to eat. Mom asked me if I was ok, but I just laid there in a comfy bed on the patio couch. Mom went on to feed the other kitties & when she came back, she seen that I was out of the bed & on all 4 paws, but only standing in one place. She called me so I responded by walking to her & in circles doing this a couple times so she picked me up & was kissing my head. She thinks I may have been in some kind of confused mode then laid me in the comfy bed on the patio couch rubbing my tummy.

♥ Later when it was time for our last late night feeding, mom came out & didn't see me & called once then asked NeuBee 123633 & Suezee 11528 where I was & of course they never told! Mom got everyone fed & called me again then started looking for me. I moved which caught her attention. I just stood in one place so mom had to bend over a couple saw horses to pick me up by the scruff of my neck & never fought once which was NOT like me! She seen I was weak, maybe dehydrated some & a bit confused! Mom decided to put me in the back room in a large crate as she was afraid she'd lose me if I wasn't confined.

♥ Mom's feeding me Friskies can food mixed with water to be more soupylike! I'm eating so she's happy bout that & going pee. She microwaved a SnuggleSafe & I'm now curled up to. Mom checks on me many times to see how I'm doing. I just lay & look at her!

♥ Mom's taking me to see Dr. Liz Monday @ 1:30pm providing I'm not better since there wasn't no openings this morning! The only time I've ever seen a vet was in 2002 as I had my big boy surgery @ 9 months old thru Feral Cat Coalition. Please keep me in your prayers.

♥ Mom did change my profile photo today & also added 6 newer pictures in my picture gallery.

♥ Mom got her survey points award Wal*Mart gift card in the mail yesterday so she went there this morning to buy her another pair of jeans (giving her 2 pairs now), a red long-sleeve shirt (on sale), TC's heart♥ medicine and my anxiety medicine.

♥ About noon today, dad held us inside kitties one at a time while mom gave us our pawdicures. We were all good for her, well, xcept Bahneetah 10641 always gets mad and tries to bite mom so dad has to hold her in one arm and with his other hand by the scruff of her neck for control.

♥ I laid on the couch next to mom most of the day as she gave me tummy rubs, Bahneetah 10641 laid on mom's lap and seems to be doing more often which makes mom very happy and Whyskrs 10378 made sure he got mom time, too!!!!

♥ Whoo Hoo!!!! The video mom downloaded to the CC videos is now ready for viewing!!!! It's a short video of when mom gave Jazpyr 10428 his bath on 1/31/2013. Mom will upload more videos in due time.
Just click on [Cat Photos & Games] then when you see the "Editor's Choice Video click on [More Videos] then click on [Browse Videos] and the video is titled "Jazpyr's 1st Bath".
