Hi Zoe Monique, Cyndee & Family, It’s me Talley,
COTM DAY 27
Today we’re going to discuss a very serious subject; Lost Kitties and how to find to find them. I hope you never need this information!
Top 10 Tips For Finding Lost Cats
1) Not all missing cats are lost. Cats are notorious for hiding in impossible places. Before you assume kitty is missing, make a thorough search indoors. ( I once spent the entire day in mom’s lingerie drawer)
2) If you know your cat is missing, grab your cellphone with a photo of your cat uploaded, flashlight and treats and head out. Wear comfortable clothes and comfortable soft-soled shoes. Hit the streets
3) While you’re searching, ask pedestrians, knock on neighbor’s doors and show the photo. Ask if you can check their garage, sheds, under the porch. To save time, multi-task during the search: leave a missing cat report with your vet, Animal Control, all the other local vets, shelters and rescue groups.
4) When you return home, leave food and water outside your door. Local TNR rescue rescues will often lend a trap. Go outside one last time to check and call your cat’s name before bedtime.
5) If you haven’t already made a missing cat poster, make one. Include: A good photograph, your cat’s name, description, any special identifying marks or collar, when last seen and where (cross street), your phone and e-mail. adding contact info at the bottom of the page cut into four or five vertical strips that can be easily torn off is helpful.
6) Enlist family and friends to help post flyers and spread the word. Have push pins, tape and a staple gun depending on the surface. The best posting spots include street intersection poles, local bulletin boards at grocery stores, library, laundromat and community center.
7) Post missing cats reports at online at Tabbytracker Craigslist, local online newspapers Use social networking like Facebook and Twitter. Ask everyone to share.
8) Visit all your local shelters to look for yourself even if say they don’t have a cat of your description.
9) If you’ve recently moved, extend your search to your old neighborhood.
10) Persevere! Cats have returned weeks and months later. Keep networking, and asking neighbors if they’ve noticed anything. Keep your flyers or posters fresh with a “Still Missing” header.
Today’s poem was selected by my dad!

I Could Pee on This
Her new sweater doesn’t smell of me
I could pee on that
She’s gone out for the day and
left her laptop on the counter
I could pee on that
Her new boyfriend just pushed
my head away
I could pee on him
She’s ignoring me ignoring her
I could pee everywhere
She’s making up for it
by putting me on her lap
I could pee on this
I could pee on this
—Charles Bukowski (or maybe his cat.)

it was
so good seeing you here again the past few days. a few did't make the sleepover just the waterfun but that's alright as long as we saw them here having fun that's all that counts to us! come this next one we'll be inside likely as it'll be to hot to move outside even in the evenings when it cools a bit the humid-ity will still make it feel icky and not want to stay out unless you have a source of water and here we only have the hose, or bathtub seeing the sprinkler never did get bought and the air conditioner we were told not to use due to the nest in the mid-dle of it which was sprayed and well a fire hazard so we'll wait till next year to get another one if we do. sandy,ab,haley,angels

janet's garden is doing great, the corn has gone by some of the limas are slowing down and pole/ground string beans are coming back in again and pole limas are coming in too. be a while for tomatoes the others however. :(

Hi Zoe Monique & Fursibs
Today was Autumn like around here and we thought it was gonna rain, but it never did. Just very cloudy with a little bit of sun here and there.

We had to stay locked in the house all day while mom went to work and then had her DR Appt...you can read about it on the CMR!

Mom got home late and we were upset cause our dinner was late. We eat at 5:30pm and mom got home at 6pm. We gave mom funny looks and told her don't be late anymore.

She said she was sorry but her and her friend also stopped to eat dinner before coming home and we didn't get any. It was Chinese and we don't like that, so it was alright!

We are all outside right now, but we will be coming in soon cause it gets dark early now and mom brings us in when it starts to get dark so she can see us...we have a very dark yard at night.

Mom is liking her new-to-her computer desk. Very roomy with lots of room for more stuff should mom get any new stuff for it....I was already all over it and investigating it from top to bottom. I didn't jump way on top of it though, but I sniffed everything within my nose reach....have to make sure it is safe for mom you know!

Well, I hope you have a pawsome evening!
Stay warm
Paw-waves!

Hi Sweetheart
What the heck is wrong with CC lately? I either get signed out or get the spinning circle of death. Mom also noticed that some words are highlighted in some peoples blogs to make them into a link for whatever the word goes to. I don't know but CC sure is doing some weird stuff again MOL. Oh well, not much we can do about it I guess till it gets straightened out.

Love you, Jynxx

Hi Zoe Monique, Cyndee & Family, It’s me Talley,
COTM DAY 26

I'd like to take a moment, before we begin today’s blog, to thank every one of you, who took the time to come by and offer your support during my catpaign. I feel like I've learned a lot from all of you, and I hope I've offered you some ideas you may not have thought of before. I truly am grateful for your comments, ideas and help.
Well, tonight, I'll address a subject that I probably should have mentioned before. That is “spreading the word.” Shelters have wonderful kitties just waiting for someone to love. There are lots of people who feel lonely and troubled whose lives could be transformed for the better by a furry companion. How do we get them together? Advertising is the answer. It’s effective, but expensive. There is free publicity though, It is through the news media. It can be as simple as writing letters to the editor of your local newspaper, or it can involve establishing a rapport with local television and promoting shelter adoptions. Remember, there are lots of loving kitties available at a much lower cost than going to a breeder or pet shop. (dad has a hard time going to PetSmart on weekends because he always wants to bring all of the kitties home. The important thing though is to get the word out. People who live with pets live longer healthier lives than those who don't. Alley Cat Allies has a media primer on the website and it offers great ideas and sample letters and news releases. The address is http://www.alleycat. org/NetCommunity/Page.aspx?pid=373 . So, to get started, let's resolve to write at least one letter to the newspaper during the month of my reign.

Regarding the Coronation Ball, We still need to arrange the details with Queens,Angel Ginger and Maggie, but one thing is certain. Every one of the kitties on CC is invited to the CMR resort on September 1st, to celebrate at the Coronation Ball, There will be a speech (a very short one, I promise) and wonderful food, , and there will be dancing too. I want to purrsonally shake paws and hug each and every one of you.


And now today, something a little different:

An Old Russian Prayer
Hear our prayer Lord, for all animals,
May they be well-fed and well-trained and happy;
Protect them from hunger and fear and suffering;
And, we pray, protect specially, dear Lord,
The little cat who is the companion of our home,
Keep her safe as she goes abroad,
And bring her back to comfort us

And a poem

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray this cushy life to keep.
I pray for toys that look like mice,
And sofa cushions, soft and nice,
For grocery bags where I can hide,
Just like a tiger, crouched inside!
I pray for gourmet Kitty snacks,
And someone nice to scratch my back,
For window sills all warm and bright,
For shadows to explore at night.
I pray I’ll always stay real cool,
And keep the secret feline rule
To NEVER tell a human that
The world is really ruled by CATS!


I love you all,
Talley

water fun day!
janet's gotten a lot done before going back on here to finish up things well this page at least isn't to far from being done and the other one shouldn't take way to long unless it's long and drawn out which on wednesdays they tend to be! she blogged first thing before walking as it was foggy and still sticky at that time and darkish so once it was light enough was off east on bay road down to the belchertown line and elf hill road loop taking pictures as she went along. got home changed and had pepper out for her first time of the day, then picked 3 tomatoes, lima and string beans and guess what the ones she planted the 3rd time an were under netting are blossoming and she's taken them out from under the netting which will get put away after it dries out. then picked peaches and the ladder finally fell apart as she was just finishing what she could get via it and on the ground, so hopes that it can be given away for somebody to take for free as it's not worth fixing up at all! after that down on all 4's weeding the front flower/herb garden getting that done and those string beans a few places will also blossom soon and come in there and on the south side of the house. sandy, ab,haley,angels

she's still got to husk corn to freeze as well as lima beans she did up last weekend.

Hi Zoe Monique, Cyndee & Family, It’s me Talley,
COTM DAY 25
Yesterday was a wonderful day here in Jacksonville. It was 85 and not a cloud in the sky. We didn’t get any thunder boomers either. There was a nice breeze and we got to play in the screened patio while mom & dad worked in the flower beds. Dad has a couple of square foot gardens, and he took some of the tired tomato plants out and put in some lettuce, parsley, beans, and CATNIP. Mom planted flowers, in the front yard beds and down the driveway beds.

Today, I’d like to tell you about an Alley Cat Allies program that helps community awareness of the needs that stray and feral kitties have. It's called Every Kitty – Every City.

http://www.alleycat.org/EveryKittyEveryCity

This what Alley Cat Allies says about the program:
Through the Every Kitty – Every City program, we raise awareness and educate the community in targeted cities about outdoor cats, feral cat colony care, Trap-Neuter-Return, and the importance of accessible, affordable neuter services through workshops, outreach programs, and organizing.

The Every Kitty – Every City program provides individuals, groups, and veterinary professionals in the community with the tools and basic knowledge needed to serve as a community resource. As part of the program, Alley Cat Allies rallies and assists community volunteers, local groups, and private shelters to enhance their already existing Trap-Neuter-Return programs or to seamlessly launch new ones.
Alley Cat Allies sponsors workshops, open to the public, for advice and instruction on the best practices of Trap-Neuter-Return and colony care. We also recruit and help train local veterinary professionals on high-volume, low-cost techniques that will increase the availability of affordable neuter services including early-age spay/neuter and vaccination protocol. To start a program in your city, contact one of the existing programs, Or contact Alley Cat Allies!
This program was vital in establishing the TNR program of No More Homeless Pets, here in Jacksonville.

And now, a funny poem for today:

All I Need To Know About Life
I Learned From My Cat

Life is hard, and then you nap.
One day ignore people, the next day annoy them.
When in doubt cop an attitude.
Curiosity never killed anything except maybe a few hours.
Climb your way to the top, that's why the drapes are there.
Never sleep alone when you can sleep on someone's face.
If you're not receiving enough attention,
try knocking over several expensive lamps.
Make your mark in the world or at least spray each corner.
When you go out into the world, remember:
being placed on a pedestal is a right, not a privilege.

Thank you so much for your love and support! I love you all,
Talley

we need a new picture of you as this one is great, but it's worn out it's welcome and maybe your mom if she's got the time can do something about it? we have tried to change ours, but again they keep getting rejected, hence we're using the ones we have up! turning more tropical, but not way to hot till next week when the remainder of the schools in this area open up as 75% are opening up this week and the 25% open up this week. a few colleges are opening up this or next week, but most aren't till the day after labor day which is when nat starts up his online classes 2 of them once again. looking forwards to seeing you for the sleepover and waterfun. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Zoe Monique, Cyndee & Family, It’s me Talley,
COTM DAY 24
We never want to think about disasters, but we need to be prepared, (or should I say Purrpared). The ‘Seniors’, Hot Rod and Ziggy, suggested that we post a blog explaining how to prepare to evacuate our homes, should it become necessary.
They are so right, with the fires raging on the west coast, and the first hurricane of the season threatening the Caribbean, and possibly the mainland US, it’s time we took a look at what we need to do.
Before I do anything else, let me post the Web Address for the ASPCA emergency preparedness Website. Everything you need to do is spelled out there;
(Please eliminate any spaces that CC puts into the web addresses)
https://www.aspca.org/pet-care/disaster-preparedne- ss
What is important is that you look at it now and prepare a kit to use when you need it. Basically, you need food, water, bowls, litter and emergency supplies for at least three days. (More is better.) We’ve already discussed first aid kits, but if any of you kitties need medication, that needs to be in the kit too.
Next you need a place to stay. Not all shelters will take pets, so here is a website that provides information on pet friendly hotels:
http://www.pet-friendly-hotels.net/
I know it can be scary to think about having to leave your home, but just think about how scary it would be to be in your home during a fire or a hurricane or a flood. When the emergency is over, use the perishable supplies and replenish your go-kit so that you’re always prepared for the unexpected.
The family needs to be prepared, that means the whole family including the four legged members.
Thanks again to Hot Rod and Ziggy for suggesting this topic.
And now our poem;
Cats
There was a spry woman
who lived next door.
She had cats in the attic
and cats on the floor.
There were cats where she ate
and cats where she slept,
And she dearly loved all
the cats that she kept.
At night she tucked each
in a wee little bed,
But they all much preferred
to wander instead.
The ripped through the screens
and battered through holes.
They climbed up the chimney
and slid down clothes poles.
They made a great racket
and scurried around.
They jumped from the roof
to the fence to the ground.
When the night was over,
at the crack of dawn,
The cats came home
with a sigh and a yawn.
They were quiet and docile
and gentle as silk
And came a-begging
for morning milk.
The neighbors were furious,
frustrated, and frantic,
Refusing to stand for
another cat antic.
When they came to complain,
they were offered a treat.
The cats were all kittenish,
playful, and neat.
They blinked and stretched
and purred on their mats.
Who would believe
there were the same cats?
By (Dorothy Golub)

Hi Zoe Monique, Cyndee & Family, It’s me Talley,
COTM DAY 23

Dad received a solicitation in the mail from the Humane Society of the United States. And while he feels that they don’t get enough of each contributed dollar to shelters, he found some of the ideas here worthwhile. (dad prefers to support Alley Cat Allies and local shelters) but here are ten Ideas from HSUS.

1. Tell the world how you feel about your local shelter or rescue by using The Humane Society of the United States' Facebook share graphics.
2. Get to know your local shelters and rescue groups. Start the process by locating all of the ones in your area. You may be surprised how many groups nearby are helping animals.

3. Learn before you leap. Before you adopt, go to the Shelter Pet Project to learn what to expect when adopting a pet. You'll be much less likely to become frustrated and return your new pet if you understand the challenges and rewards of adopting a pet beforehand.

4. Say Thanks, Take a minute to express your gratitude to the people who work at your local shelter or rescue groups. If you've adopted a pet from one of them, show how well your pet is doing by sharing an updated picture via a letter, email, or posting it on the organization's Facebook page or website.

5. Get Crafty. Combine fabric, yarn, recyclables, and imagination to bring much-needed fun into the lives of local shelter and rescue pets. There's no end to the toys you can make. Try braiding strips of fleece into fun for dogs, or cutting and folding a surprising household object into a cat distractor.

6. Become a “Fan”. Like" the Shelter Pet Project on Facebook. Then, if possible, "like" the individual groups in your community, too.

7. Make wishes come true. Shelters and rescue groups always need towels, toys, and other supplies. Check their websites for wish lists or call them to find out what's in short supply.

8. Volunteer, if you can!

9. Help by helping your own pets, Microchip, tag and keep them safe!

10. Help local shelters make positive changes. If you see or hear anything at your local shelter that concerns you, follow The HSUS's guidelines for addressing that concern in the most effective way.

Nothing new here, but just a reminder.

And now, I have a short, funny little poem for us today:

You will find that feeding a cat is no easy task
What's the big problem you may well ask
Just open a tin and feed them from that
It is obvious my friend you don't own a cat
When outside they will eat a fly or a mouse
But things soon change when they dine in the house
Your fridge might be full of meat, poultry and fish
But what do you put in your fussy Cats dish
For to keep a Cat fed we beg, steal and borrow
Because what we give them today they won't want TOMORROW.

I love you all, dear friends,
Talley

Hi Sweetheart
Well, Mom is a little caught up today so here I am MOL. She is doing the laundry right now and has gotten most of her emails, contests and surveys done, so she figured she had better get some blogs done today as well. Other than dealing with the heat, Boots has had an eye infection for a couple of days or it could be allergies. Mom ordered some kitty eye infection cream on Amazon and is waiting for it to get here. Mom said every time he sleeps under this big fern that Grandma has outside, his eye gets all goopy and stuff. Even Twin has a slight watery left eye when he sleeps under it so it might be something under the plant making their eyes irritated. Twin also had a knot over his right eye but Mom thinks it might just be a bump from him running into something. The other morning she was watering and he was doing race cat all over the back yard and he is naturally clumsy so he probably ran into one of the flower pots. She noticed it later that night and it hasn't gotten any bigger so she suspects it's just a bruise. Tiger is the only one not having any problems so that's good.

Love You, Jynxx

Hi Zoe Monique and all of the family, It's me,
Talley,
COTM DAY 21

Even though today’s blog is off of our topic, I wanted to share this. I just have a family story and a poem for you. The poem and the story together, are kind of long so I’ll get right to it;
~~~~~~~~~~~~

In the days after my sister Angel Lucy Fur crossed the Rainbow Bridge, my dad was inconsolable. He missed her terribly and he just couldn't seem to get over the heartache. They had been best friends for seventeen years and Lucy was very precious to him.
Whenever he would go to bed, He imagined that he could feel her jump up to share his pillow, as she always had. He'd reach up to feel her soft fur and he'd find only emptiness on the pillow and in his heart.
It was a week after Lucy died that dad had a remarkable dream. He said it was so real he felt that he was really there. In his dream, he heard a soft scratching at the front door and when he opened it, there was a big black cat at the door just sitting quietly. The cat turned and looked away from the house toward the little memorial garden where Lucy had been buried. There were dozens of cats there, all looking so radiantly beautiful in the afternoon sunlight that they seemed to shine from within, with a light of their own. Sitting in the very front of the gathering, was Lucy. She looked at dad and slowly winked her eyes at him. Then, with a swish of her tail, she turned away and led the cats down into the back garden, fading away as they went. Dad awoke from that dream with tears in his eyes, but he knew that Lucy had come back to say a final goodbye and to let him know she was ok and that she would be waiting for him..........
Dad could hardly manage to tell mom about the dream, he kept choking up, but mom found this poem for him. He copied it in very small print, and still carries it in his wallet.
Here is that special poem that dad copied back in 2008;

*Thud* as you hear,
A cat jump down,
Turn around to check,
Nothing there,
*Meow* goes a cat,
Where from?
I don't see,
Something wrapping around your legs,
Go away Smokey,
You look down nothing there,
*Jump* as the bed bounced,
The cat jumped on the bed,
But you look....there's no cat,
*creak* goes the door,
The cat sneaked out,
But no cat to be seen,
You hear a cat eating/drinking,
But there's no bowls or cat,
Whats making these noises?
There's no cat, not no more,
He died on 20th May,
so what makes these movements?
Not the dog he's too noisy,
Could it be Smokey's spirit?
To say he's ok?
Or is it just your mind playing tricks,
Making you think he is still around.

By Stacey Olner

Hi Zoe Monique It’s me Talley,
COTM DAY 20
Today's topic is Reliable Cat Health Information and the Cornell University Feline health Center. They have some great information on Cat Health Topics, in general, and in particular their Spay Neuter program, but the article is quite lengthy, So I'm giving the web address and asking that you stop by and check out the site. It would take several CC Blogs to print it here so I think this is the best way to bring it you. The Address is: www.vet.cornell.edu/fhc.

This is a funny story that I would like to share with you about my brother Pete. When he was just a little kitten he had some kind of immune deficiency that caused his paw pads to crack and bleed. Our vet first diagnosed it as chemical burns, which dad knew wasn’t right. Finally our vet referred Pete to a Feline Dermatologist. His name was Dr. Bishop. He was a Graduate of Cornell.
He took one look at Pete’s little pink paws and said that he had Eosinophilic Granuloma Complex. He said that kittens grew out of it as their immune systems developed, but untreated, the normal course was to develop a serious and sometime fatal infection.

Pete had to have his paws cleaned with a special medicine three times a day and take antibiotic pills morning and evening. Pete was a very mellow kitten, and after the third day he realized that he would get treats for taking his medicine, all dad had to do was put the pills down on his plate and Pete would eat them and then look for his treats. On one of his recheck visits, dad showed Dr. Bishop how easy it was to get Pete to take his medicine. Dr. Bishop thought it was amazing, and asked if he could borrow Pete to show to the class that he taught at the University of Florida. Dad said no, that he couldn’t borrow Pete, but that he would bring Pete to class.
Dad was a little worried that Pete might not do his pill trick in front of a hundred Veterinary Students, but he didn’t even seem to notice them. He took his pills, the class erupted in laughter and Dr. Bishop told his students that giving cats medicine didn’t have to be hard, it just required a gentle touch and love.
I hope that made you smile.

Tonight's Poem is a short one by Mary F. of North Carolina; Ms. Murphy picked it for us.
Here it is:

I found a small kitty
so tiny and scared.
I don't know who dumped her
or how she has fared.

She's cold, wet and skinny
such a pitiful sight.
I suspect she has been out here
for many a night.

How could someone dump her?
It seems such a pity.
Some people are cruel
to poor helpless kitties.

Come with me little kitty
I'll make everything right.
You will no longer be hungry
or cold at night.

Your life will be better.
All the love you can stand.
No more neglect for you.
Only a kind, gentle hand.

Love to all of you,
Talley

Hi Zoe Monique & Fursibs
Guess what? We got our new kitty tree today and we like it...I know Kelsee does and so does Sheba..Jesse kinda looked at it and went away...mom can't wait to see if Kali & me like it....will post some pics soon...Kelsee also got her new collar ID tag today! I hope mine comes tomorrow!

Sheba had fun helping mom with the tree...she was jumping in and out of the box and tipped over the box of screws a couple of times, but mom finally managed to get it done, even with her help!

We had a nice day today, it was 83* and partly sunny, we got a trace of rain, but nothing to meow at, just enough to get me and Kelsee on the porch and out of the yard.

Mom has the day of tomorrow and we are so happy about that cause she has no DR appts set and only needs to walk up to Family Dollar for a few items..it only takes her about 45 minutes to get there, shop and return home...it is just up the street.

My MHL team is gonna change names on us. We were the "TIMS", but now we will be something different..Commish is taking votes now!

Mr Squirrel came back today looking for his cashews, and today he climbed the fence over by the back porch to get moms attention..he started chattering at her...she finally heard him and went down to feed him..pretty smart squirrel, I'd say!

Mom has a hard time hearing from her left ear, so she really didn't hear him well, but when she saw me wagging my tail and staring at something, she looked and then she heard him.

I am sorry to be so late, but I did want to thank you for the pawsome gifts for my 10th birthday and my surprise COTD! I am so blessed to have such pawsome furiends as you!

Hope you have a pawsome evening!
Try to keep cool!

Hi Sweetheart
Guess what? Texas might get some rain and not just a sprinkle like last week. I have never seen grown people so happy to see water before MOL. They said they'll take any rain that Mother Nature throws their way. Anyway, Mom is super behind cuz her PC is acting stupid again so I will talk to you later.

Hi Zoe Monique It’s me Talley,
COTM DAY 19
We had some very good news today. The results from the Animal Rescue Shelter Challenge were announced, and Angel Easy’s shelter won a thousand dollar grant. All of those clicks paid off. They have won a nice award.
Now that we’re on a roll, let’s all get behind the Zoo Crew’s Shelter, and see if we can help them win a grant too. To vote for them just go to the Animal Rescue site Shelter Challenge and do the search for: Humane Society of Midland County in Midland MI.
Even though, the Zoo Crew’s shelter, like the VI Kitty’s is in a very small communities and at a disadvantage in the voting because of that. But guess what, if we add the CC family’s votes to theirs we can make them winners too. Every single click can save a life. The Zoo Crew’s Anya, owes her life to the Humane Society of Midland County, The least we can do is thank them for saving our friend's Anya.
While we’re on the subject of shelters, I’d like to remind everyone, Adopt Don't Buy!
The following information is from The San Francisco ASPCA
When you adopt an animal, you're not just saving the life of the animal you're welcoming into your home& family. You’re giving another animal an opportunity to move to the adoption floor and find a new family. And, you’re reducing the demand that keeps puppy and kitten mills in business. Many people buy from animal mills without realizing that these breeding facilities abuse and neglect their animals.
Each year, millions of unwanted animals enter shelters across America. More than three million cats and dogs are euthanized every year; millions more small animals, like rabbits and hamsters, meet the same fate. Adoption helps break this cycle and put an end to the animal mill industry.
If you would still rather buy than adopt, make sure you buy from a responsible, reputable breeder. Don’t support animal mills!
Responsible breeders are individuals who have focused their efforts on one or a select few breeds. They have become knowledgeable about heritable defects, temperament and behavior1 through breeding, historical research and ongoing study, mentoring relationships, club memberships, showing, raising and training these breeds.

Today’s Poem is called;
Scamp
You've torn the daily paper
Into a million shreds
And tested the comfort
Of all the beds.

Chased my wool
All over the floor
Hissed and spat
At the dog next door,

And proved yourself
So brave and bold
For a tiny kitten
Only six weeks old.

You're now a black
Little fluffy ball
Curled up tight
Asleep in the hall.
By B. Hayes

Purrs and Hugs,
Your furiend always,
Talley

Hi Zoe Monique It’s me Talley,
COTM DAY 18
Today I’d like to tell you about some remarkable cats who help all cats, by being feline ambassadors. These cats are the subjects of bestselling books.
Our dad reads aloud to us and we enjoy it very much. Mom laughs and says we just like the sound of dad's voice.
We recently read A Street Cat Named Bob, and it is a remarkable true story of a cat rescued by a young man who in turn rescued the young man by helping him learn to care for another living soul, and free himself from drug addiction.
Another wonderful read is Homer's Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned about Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat by Gwen Cooper We found it fascinating. Homer triumphed over blindness to save his mom's life from a dangerous burglar and discover the joy of life for himself.
Dewey the Library cat, by Vickie Myron is the story of a wonderful little stray kitten who charmed his way into the hearts of readers around the world and gave a small town pride in itself.
Making rounds with Oscar by Dr. David Dosa is about a kitty who can sense the impending death of elderly patients and bring them comfort in the last hours of their life.
These books are wonderful gifts and great reads. You might check your local library for some of these wonderful stories.

Our poem today is The Naming Of Cats by T. S. Eliot.
Which is from The Book Of Practical Cats, the basis for the Broadway Musical ‘CATS’
~~~
The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn't just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I'm as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.
First of all, there's the name that the family use daily,
Such as Peter, Augustus, Alonzo or James,
Such as Victor or Jonathan, George or Bill Bailey--
All of them sensible everyday names.
There are fancier names if you think they sound sweeter,
Some for the gentlemen, some for the dames:
Such as Plato, Admetus, Electra, Demeter--
But all of them sensible everyday names.
But I tell you, a cat needs a name that's particular,
A name that's peculiar, and more dignified,
Else how can he keep up his tail perpendicular,
Or spread out his whiskers, or cherish his pride?
Of names of this kind, I can give you a quorum,
Such as Munkustrap, Quaxo, or Coricopat,
Such as Bombalurina, or else Jellylorum-
Names that never belong to more than one cat.
But above and beyond there's still one name left over,
And that is the name that you never will guess;
The name that no human research can discover--
But THE CAT HIMSELF KNOWS, and will never confess.
When you notice a cat in profound meditation,
The reason, I tell you, is always the same:
His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation
Of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his name:
His ineffable effable
Effanineffable
Deep and inscrutable singular Name.
~~~
I love you all,
Talley

Hi Zoe Monique and all of the family, It's me,
Talley,
COTM DAY 17
Since I got my fur up over the politicians yesterday, I think this would be a good time to talk about making our voices heard. At almost every level of government, when the bureaucrats start looking for ways to trim their budgets the first place they look is animal services.
Dad says politicians think that since animals don't vote, that no one will object to cutting budgets for helping them. It's true that animals don't vote, but people who love animals, do vote and it's very important to let politicians at every level know that messing with animal welfare issues is a vote loser. We need to get our pawrents to make their feelings known to their representatives.
In addition to letting the politicians know how we feel, Letters and emails to Newspapers, TV and Radio outlets can also serve to generate public awareness and even donations to animal welfare organizations. It doesn't take very long to come up with a brief note explaining how important animal welfare is to us, and the appropriate addresses are readily available on the internet.
The wording of these messages should be respectful but firm. Okay! Enough on that, but if you love animals, be proactive and let the world know how important it is to speak for those who can't speak for themselves.
Tonight's poem is new to all of us and was suggested by a friend of mom's at her book club. It was written by one of the volunteers at a rescue facility called Catkins.
There's a small and quite sweet ginger kitten,
found wandering afraid and alone.
He's one of just hundreds like him,
alone and without any home.

Some human just is not looking,
or caring to find where he's gone.
They go out and buy just a new one,
replaced like new toys just for fun.

Now cats they are treated as chattel,
They don't have a value you see.
If one gets let out too early,
they end up as strays, one, two, three.

Old cats that no one is after,
are thrown out like on refuse day.
People get tired of old rubbish,
don't care when they go astray.

Old cats have something to offer,
a dignity which humans have not.
They don't let you down like most people,
and they just put up with their lot.

When cats or when kittens go missing,
there aren't many people who care.
Some folks will ring in the rescue,
to see if they're handed in there.

If you have a cat, or a kitten,
it's yours for years yet to come.
It's your job to care and to love it,
not discard it or lose it like some.

The Country is crawling with kittens,
which people think are good fun,
they soon grow up and get boring,
and end up as strays like this one.

This kitten is called Mr Darcy,
he's safe and he's warm and he's kind.
And now he is living at Catkins,
until a new owner we find.

Please get your cat micro-chipped and neutered, and keep them in at night.
Love to you,
Talley

Hi Zoe Monique It’s me Talley,
COTM DAY 16

Today we’ll talk about Kitty First Aid – I hope you never need the information I’m sharing today, but as my dad says, Hope for the best, but always be prepared for the worst;
No cat owner should be without a cat first aid kit. You can buy a pre-assembled one (there are quite a few on Amazon) or save some money by building your own and keeping everything in a small toolbox or other container.
Here are the basic components:
• Waterproof box with a secure lid (one with a handle is convenient) in which to stow the items
• Sharp-point tweezers
• Digital rectal thermometer
• Small blunt-point scissors
• Sterile gauze pads
• Rolled sterile gauze
• White surgical tape
• Cotton balls and a roll of cotton padding
• Hydrogen Peroxide (a wound cleanser)
• Sterile eyewash solution (The human version is fine.)
• Antiseptic cleanser
• Hydrocortisone and antibiotic ointment
• Eye dropper
• List of your pet’s medicines (including dosage), and any medical conditions
• A chemical ice pack, or big bag of frozen peas (Keep in your freezer and wrap in a towel before using.)
• Book on cat first aid (Read it before your cat needs first aid.)
• Tape the following telephone numbers to the inside lid: 1) Your vet (including after-hours numbers),2) the phone number, address and map to the nearest pet ER, 3) the phone number of a mobile vet if you don’t have a car, and 4) the ASPCA’s 24/7/365 poison control center: (888) 426-4435
For additional important information, I found an excellent list of first aid instruction and proce-dures which I would consider printing out and adding to the kit. Here is the web address:
http://www.catster.com/cat-health-care/cat-first-a- - id
It gives normal temperatures, respiration rates, heart rates and other vital information you’ll need in an emergency.


On another subject, I made the mistake of reading the news over dad’s shoulder this morning, It was awful!
I read our blogs every day and I see nothing but kindness and caring. If only political leaders all over the world could take an example from us, the CC kitties and pawrents, maybe they could learn to work together to make our world a better place. Whoa! There I go, getting on my soapbox. …...
Today's poem is short but very sweet. I hope you like it. (My sister Ms. Murphy picked this one)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I know my cat’s an angel
For she watches over me.
Slyly, when her eyes seem shut;
At night, when I can’t see.
I know my cat’s an angel
For her ears protect my sleep.
A creak, a squeak, a footfall;
At any noise she’ll leap.
I know my cat’s an angel
For she curls up at my side;
A warning to intruders
That it’s best to run and hide.
I know my cat’s an angel
For although she hasn’t wings
I’m safe and warm beside her,
Wrapped in all the love she brings.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sending, lots of love,
Your friend always,
Talley

Hi Zoe Monique It’s me Talley,
COTM DAY 15
Wow what a day! It’s been storming all day and tomorrow is our mom’s Birthday. Uncle Ted (mom’s youngest son) has invited mom and dad to a birthday cookout tomorrow. Dad decided to make mom a special dinner tonight and celebrate a day early.
He went to the market early this morning and had gotten New York Strip steaks, some lobster tails, fresh broccoli, Baking potatoes and everything to make a Caesar Salad.
He started preheating the oven and we were all in the kitchen helping. He turned the oven on to preheat and that's when we heard a clap of really loud thunder right outside and the power went off. Dad ran out and he could still see sparks coming from several transformers on the poles down the street. He came back inside and switched on our generator. Then he began making dinner.
Well, when mom got home from her book club, she said that the weather and traffic had been awful. She said that traffic lights were all on flashing yellow all the way from the University of North Florida. Dad told her to go take a nice Jacuzzi, relax and let him pamper her. We were pleased to see that dad had gotten an extra Lobster tail, which he boiled for us. He said the whole family should celebrate mom’s birthday, including us kitties.
When mom was finished with her Jacuzzi, she joined us all in the kitchen. At dinner dad gave mom his birthday card for her which had the little donation thank you from No More Homeless Pets in it. As they were having dinner, and lingering over dessert, Mom asked, “What about Talley’s blog for Saturday, the two of you usually write it the evening before.”
Dad told her that we do a short blog today. He said that the CC family would understand.
I apologize for dad, but he says, mom deserves a special day. (I agree, mom is pretty special) So I guess what I'd like to do, is just remind everyone to go to freekibble.com and the animal rescue site every day. . (The New Shelter Challenge will be starting soon so you’ll all have the opportunity to vote for the Shelter of your Choice to receive cash grants!)
Thank you so much for your understanding,

Dad picked this poem for us;

Caring Cats
Appearing to be, just little brats,
Nevertheless, they are caring cats.
Qualified to leap, to unreachable heights
Always more frisky, particularly at night.
Able to run sideways, even on walls
Keeping in balance, never to fall.
Accused of being finicky, when I call it class
An affectionate nature, they’re caring cats.
When talking to a cat, to make you aware
They shift their ears, to tell you they hear.
The light that shines, from their eyes at night
Alone in the dark, a mysterious sight.
Captivating your love, with a relaxing purr
Displaying affection, attentive to words.
Their spirited nature, being mischievous cats
Compassionate felines, they’re caring cats.

Special Hugs and Kitty Kisses,

I love you all,
Talley

Hi Sweetheart
Well, it's been a crazy week. Dad stayed home from work on Monday cuz he had a sinus infection. The air conditioner went out on Tuesday night and didn't get fixed until 3 in the afternoon on Wednesday. Mom, Dad and Grandpa slept in the kitchen on the floor cuz it has a separate unit in there because the kitchen was remodeled years ago and they added that unit right after. Grandma slept in her room cuz she has COPD and it was to much of a hassle to move her big breathing machine to the kitchen. Then a big storm blew through Wednesday night and knocked the power out for a few minutes. Mom has been having trouble with her right arm hurting but she thinks it's from sitting on the PC all day. Boots was sick for a couple of days and Mom thinks it was a URI cuz his eye was all matted up. She gave him his L-lysine treats and took him in her bathroom, turned on the shower for the steam and cleaned his eye with a warm washcloth. He seems to be doing better and now the twins look like they have runny eyes but they don't seem as sick as Boots was. So, poor Mom and Dad have had some kind of busy week and is glad it is over.


Love you, Jynxx

Hi name Zoe Monique It’s me Talley,
COTM DAY 14
Today I think we'll look into what you should do you do if you encounter an injured kitty.
The very first thing to do is to get the cat some place safe, and try to find the owner. If that isn't possible, examine the kitty to determine the problem. If it was hit by a car you should gently scoop up the cat and rush it to a veterinarian for care. Never have a young child hold an injured pet.
Finding an injured cat when you do not know the cause is a bit more concerning. You will have to determine if the cat needs medical attention from a veterinarian, or just needs rest. Usually with an injury situation, and a stray cat, a trip to the vet is best, because they can give the cat any vaccinations it will require, and check it properly for any other health issues. This is particularly important if you are considering keeping the cat. Remember, we are talking about a cat where you KNOW there is not an owner, not just a stray cat you happened to find for the first time.
Home rest after treatment, should always be done in a small quiet room, where the cat can have a litter box, food, and water. Proper nutrition is important to the recovery of the kitty. It should have plenty of water and dry food, plus the addition of a small amount of canned food to give it extra protein and energy.

COMMON INJURIES TO CATS
* Being hit by a vehicle
* Being injured by another animal
* Being injured by a fan-belt (in the winter cats often curl up in or under vehicle engines for warmth)
* Intentionally hurt by a human
If you have injured an animal it is your duty to tend to it. While you may not be financially responsible (after all its owner let it out) you have a moral duty to make sure it does not suffer needlessly while waiting to be helped.
Well, I hope you never need this information, but it's good to think about what to do, before you actually have to deal with the situation.

Today's Poem was picked for us by my mom, who says every kitty she's ever had has left pawprints on her heart.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
They left us their paw prints we no longer see,
their happiness still in our minds.
They left us fond memories to you and to me,
their friendship will last all of time.
They left us their shadows grow dimmer to fade,
but never forgotten we'll see.
They left us their photos to gaze at each day,
to brighten us up when we're down.
They left us their feelings their purrs and their meows,
that echo around empty rooms.
They left us those moments to think of and smile,
of footfalls not gentle, like horses.
They left us their playing they thought such a lark,
with toy mice and baubles a plenty.
And the house was all empty without our small friends,
but the love that they gave will always remain...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Your Friend Forever,
Talley
