How We Met

We had just lost our blue-eyed, long-haired white kitty, Sugar to FELV and our neighbors cat had just had a litter of white kittens. They gave us Moki when she was just 5 weeks old. She was so small the vet called her a "pocket kitty". Moki crossed the Bridge on 10/28/09. And we really miss her a lot! RIP, sweet angel.
The picture at the bottom has 2 of her brothers, Red and Felix (now, both angels). Felix looks black in the picture, but he's really all gray.

she's just gettting started on
all the blogging, first did both email/fb pages which by the time she goes to leave for the dentist around 8 will be all most filled up for sure! froggier than anything, but seems it's tarting to lift a bit as it's supposed to be gone by 8 this mor-ning when she leaves. she's still got some pain in both arms, but nothing like it was and hopes that she won't have to cut fruit as she thinks one of the students who'll be leaving in a week or two to go back to her home and store on the cape for the summer will be working tomorrow only day this week as it's finals so somebody told her and nat's is coming up soon too as she's got just chapter tests for the last part as the big work is all done. he's signed up for 3 courses this coming fall and 2 next spring to get his certificate in entre-peneurship and be done for a while to get his business really hopping on ebay more than it has been. janet's still got to do a good job brushing her eeeth ad flossing them before she goes as well as make another stinky pit stop. after she's home it's breakfast and wait till this afternoon to start weed ing out the old herb bed to ready it for flower seeds and plants which can't go in yet due to still danger of frosts and freezes. our next door neighbors leave florida next friday the 6th and should be home by the 8th as they're rushing things so it seems or maybe have appointments here early that week, don't know as nat's gotta get gas and mow their lawn needs it bad as ours was done before the rain and needs it again. looks like a wet week coming in but warmer mid to upper 60s each day starting into the 30s and 40s so beats the lower 40s highs of yesterday here and it was cold, but felt a bit warmer when janet walked around 7:30 last night usually she's gotten ready for bed and is about ready to jump in, but with it lighter later she will be able to walk just before going to bed now. can you believe mommy's stupid dentist office made the appt. for the same morning as her doctor's appt.??? well nat's gotta call as we have arrangements for a ride for that other day it was what we thought and try to get her in for that morning if possible otherwise that ride might be in jeopardy! if she doesn't weed, then will put some herb seeds on the south side and also plant the leeks which have to go out some of them and the others she doesn't know as they were just thrown into a planter tons of seeds and she got it at wally world and well doesn't know if she'll be able to plant those or not, but will have to go and get broccoli and sage as well as more leeks. oh some good news she and another got hours have been restored, but doesn't know like her dept. boss if the "slasher" store manager will cut them or not, but he said to plan on being back to 6-11 once again and 30 hours. angels ab,haley

we were off wednesday
and you guys yesterday. by the way the sleepover/sports days return tues/wed of the first week in may. got a humid front lift ing through right now and a cold front later tonight with boomers and the works more than likely. temps ranging from the 60s most of next week starting tomorrow through thurs. to the upper 50s on tues with rain and 70s again by a week from today next friday. showers again monday and wed night into thurs am. finally going to get some badly needed rain, with brush fires all around now we can use what we can get! janet's been good about keeping her feet up the past 3 afternoons sitting half in/out of the sun/shade working online till the battery in this stupid thing needed recharging. janet's going to weed this weekend as well as get the peas, lettuce and carrots in and hopes to turn over some of mommy's garden to get that started as well with some lettuce and carrots. she's cancel-ling her planned vacation, will email them this afternoon or call them to let them know and in it's place is booking a bus day trip so will hit the bank on errands on monday to get out the $$$ needed for that one then two shopping trips, one to ct to return some jeans to llbean and get 2 more pairs, then to southern nh, merrimack to outlets to return some track shoes there. she's running late again and wants to get out to walk and thus have time to get stuff finished up after she gets in time permitting of course. see ya tomorrow we hope! angels,ab, haley

there's a lot going on here as well!
janet sat out supervising them and slept that night straight through till 2:30 yesterday when she woke up and got going pronto since she had to be in for 6! after work she got online stuff done later than she liked, but that was due to the stupid clothes line breaking and all the clothes on it falling to the ground in two spots, so she had to rush to get all the stuff in to the basket and pins into their pail as nat came out and helped her to put two pieces of line into two different spots and then clothes back up on the lines which won't come down till later on this morning once she's in from work and after errands have been run more likely early this afternoon as she's going to sit outside like she did yesterday soaking up the golden rays while they last as tomorrow back to the 60s for the next few days as a cool front comes in with showers we hope as we need it bad tonight. she's planning on sitting out afer she gets in as we'll be near 80 and were 75 yesterday, so were matching temps like down your way. 44 here this morning warmest since the last time it rained here a few weeks back!
with all but the weeding done janet would like to get out there early after she's in from work tomorrow as it'll be just right to do that sort of thing, as well as plant some peas, lettuce, carrots, lettuce and a few other early things. still has to get broccoli as even wally world hasn't gotten that yet and usually does have them. birds are singing away outside right now as a mocker was singing likely most of the night for the first time in ages around here as he usually hangs about down the road and around southeast street!
we'll likely be offline wednesday due to early morning blood work followed by late morning check ins for all 3 of them and once home janet's got a chicken casserole to make in the oven or crockpot depends what she wants to do at the time to use up the roast chicken from supper last night. angels,ab,haley

it's feeling more like march outside
but the temps aren't they're almost 60!!! janet says with the wind chill it's more like it's into the lower 50s or upper 40s. we have a cool front going through sometime this morning and rain is supposed to move on in dropping us to the lower 50s for the high the rest of the day and being around freezing or upper 20s at night for the next few mornings.
janet finally got a brace of sorts for her ankle and won't find out till wed next week if it's the right sort or not, as all 3 of them have check ins for various things between 10-10:30 as nat is the last one so likely they won't be home from there till 11;15-30 or there abouts, and janet will be getting mommy up bright and early for 6 to make the blood work for 7am or just around that uptown as janet has to go there seeing her insurance won't cover it at her doctor's office strange that one as the last would and this one won't! got warmer temps coming on in after tomorrow's highs near 60 of the 60s through wed of next week and a slight chance of showers on sunday when we hit the lower to mid 70s. :) janet's hoping on getting out side to sit in her chaise lounger to read or do online stuff in the shade out front from the spruce tree as leaves are just starting to come out, but the cold/frosts/freezes have slowed things way down. most of the daffies got frosted and died which were in full bloom while others got all bent over and didn't come back up so it's just the later ones which will be a big delight to get pictures of when janet takes her car when ordinarilly she would've been out walking. tomorrow she takes mommy to get her hearing aide serviced in northampton for 9 so is getting her car's oil changed at her dealership at the same time so nat is going to keep mommy company. don't know if they will do any other errands over that way or not as janet wanted to do 2 other stops, but now that she's saving for her vacat-ion that's going to have to wait. she cancelled her erie canal bus day trip and they won't refund her $$ she paid, but she told them to resell that seat to somebody else. cheapskates that outfit is and found another going out in early august to long island for lighthouse cruise so is wanting to book that, but again doesn't think the $$$ is going to be there to do that seeing she wants to renew her license/registration through AAA in hadley saving her a trip to greenfield which she still has to make as mommy needs her id and nat has to renew his too! got errands to do after work thursday bank run, wally world and don't know if they'll do aldi's too or not. she is hoping nat will help her tomorrow afternoon while it's cool with the fence as well taking down half/rolling it up and moving poles as well as putting the new piece up, but thinks that is likely to wait seeing he's in the middle of doing a long paper for one online course and doing a fb page for his ebay business for the other online course. he figures after next spring he'll be done with everything get his cer-tificate

yes, the weather here
stinks here this week! got 1/2" snow yesterday which all melted by afternoon and more coming down right now for most of the day and should make it very interesting for the ride into work for janet this morning. if they usually say more than 3" of snow she stays home, but is getting braver and is going into work despite her outer right ankle. she says it appeared out of the blue, as she doesn't know if it was the shoes she wore on the long walk up/back to the church or from something else. she says it throbs some on and off and well she sits here and puts it in the up position and it helps some, but can't afford to take time off from work due to only 24 hours for the entire year! they finished up the last of the scal-loped potatoes and had the ham she was going to put in it as well as finishing the lima beans so tonight it's hamburger helper or pasta/tomato soup/hamburg as a change of pace. well she has to stop so she can get to other entries here finish up and get onto fb to do as much on both pages there she can be-fore breakfast which is at 6 this morning so she can leave here and warm up the car before 6:15 when she leaves 45 mins early to take her sweet time getting into work safe and sound. angels,ab,haley

happy april fools day!
that's a big nope for the garden work, only the pine needles and black plastic got done, the wind punched a big hole in janet's sails yesterday and now she's not feeling good at all as the bank teller asked her yesterday if she felt okay, janet said yes, when she meant to say no! she's not been able to sleep good for around a week now and with night sweats on/off as well as being just stuffed up and icky feeling the sinus infection or sinus flu which nat started in jan and mommy in feb finally caught up with her and she's got it again. likely with the lousy weather and cold to warm and back and forth isn't helping her and neither are the allergies which right now aren't quite as bad as they were a few weeks back when the first of the poplar trees were in bloom. that's past and the next ones should be birch/late poplar then near the last oak and pine which really take the wind out of her sails. but this punched it and instead of getting outside yesterday to clean out around the fence she was in here doing online stuff till near 4 and in her recliner waiting for the turkey-broccoli bake to finish warming up she made it on wednesday with the broccoli she did for easter, but saved it instead for this. she's headachy/stuffed up and hurts around her eyes but right now not to bad like it was when she was trying to get back to sleep but just kept moving around! she'll work with it like she has to due to a cut in hours from 30 to 24 and time change too from 6-10 to 7-11 which in some ways is easier for her as she will be able to walk soon before leaving for work/break-fast and then delete the other late morning walk which usually doesn't get taken, but might today if it's not booming as we're near our high for the day already mid 60s!! going down to the 50s and morning rain tomorrow, mid 30s snow showers on sunday to a sinker and lower 40s on monday, colder upper 30s on tuesday partly sunny and sunny with mid 40s on wednesday. it's also the ONLY wed free of no appts. running around all month for janet as the other 3 are booked solid and a few days into may already! the garden work she might try to do a lit-tle on wednesday, as she's also planted pansies out front and has rosemary ready to go in as well as lavender seeing she lost her big one and got another one at wally world those will go in one out front and the others on the south side, but we have a carpenter coming soon to put stuff on the roof to kill the fungus and crap growing on it as he did it last late spring and killed some of janet's flowers, the others came back but not like they should've. angels,ab,haley

janet's way behind too this morning
as she's now doing weekend hours on weekdays sleeping in till 2;30 just about getting up and rushing to get online by 3 and do ing as much as she can between that time and breakfast and has gotten some entries into fb done at least one and responded to some email as well. haley is sure playing her typical in/out this morning and well janet's had to leave her door open as it's cooled down more and was at 44 cloudy outside when she took pep-per out around 2:50 this morning. supposed to be around upper 40s to lower 50s and damp at times then dry the rest of the day till the rain moves in tonight and some say ending tomorrow morning while others are saying rain all day. we get what we get and like it if it's rain it's okay and well as long as it doesn't fall on easter morning to early mid afternoon that's fine. we'll be mostly 50s and 60s from tomorrow through the end of next week with rain sunday night into monday, showers/rain on fri/sat and dry and sunny the other times.
nat had a good 6 month cleaning/check yesterday and doens't go back till late in october just before halloween. janet almost finished blogging but had to stop shy of the last 2-3 which she finished up when she got back and ALL online stuff was done by 2 when nat wanted to walk the big block as they took pepper so she got in 2 walks yesterday too! then janet went to him when supper was baking in the oven almost done to walk again and he said now not later, so did the little block and quite a bit of traffic too going home.
she's got minor changes to the menus for easter toast to cin-namon buns for breakfast and then broccoli/string beans from peas and succotash, otherwise they're gonna spoil. she'll do those on sat late morning afternoon and the cherry cheesecake as well. otherwise it's anglo-american shepherd's pie tonight through saturday with irish soda bread. angels,ab,haley

we're happy too that
we didn't get more than 1/2" snow here and it melted all fast so that it's called poor mans fertilizer by farmers going way back as janet remembers being told that by both grandparents when they were alive. didn't last longer than a few hours as it was already gone by 9 and traces lingered through till mid afternoon in shadier or protected spots and janet got a few pictures of what was left as well as the first of her daffies opened up and blossoming. we got to the lower 50s yesterday and didn't feel like it as that wind was something else! felt more like the 30s and you felt it too when outside or walking which janet was waiting for nat as he said he would go with her and never did so she ended up going mid afternoon by her-self and that was it for the day! was to cold by after supper as nat just was out of it with his new pokemon stuff and then had bought more when out with his loopy cousin for a few hours as well. we'll see the sunrise this morning, but won't see the sun set or going down clouds coming in this afternoon with a series of fronts/storms coming in 2 this week and then a series of bunches of them next week but temps into the 50s and 60s not the 40s like they were saying! with the showers com-ing in tonight snow up north as they totally missed out on the last storm we got yesterday. was 34 when janet took pepper out and might have gone down a bit more, but going to the mid to upper 50s today and lower 60s with morning showers tomorrow and then drying out through thursday and rain on friday. janet and nat ran a few errands over to target/her store yes-terday as they had to get a few things and janet hopes to do some baking soda bread which was to have been done for st. pat rick's day, but didn't get the raisins for it so a week later but beats nothing might be for easter. then made goulash which will last for supper tonight and tomorrow night maybe into thursday and she wants to do a shepherd's pie as well but might wait till sometime next week to do that after the easter leftovers are done and gone. looks like most of next week will be wet everyday and 50s/60s so not to bad. hoping nothing running around wise today! angels,ab,haley

guess what?
mommy is doing a whole lot better thanks to the new new inhalers, nebulizer, meds which she's taking. she's slowly being weaned off of the prenisone gradually and starts taking 1/2 as of tomorrow, then next wenesday down to 1/4 through till when she sees her again on the 30th. kate said, "finally i can hear your voice clearer than it was last week when there wasn't hard-ly a sound but coughing/wheezing! we're so happy that she's a lot better and doesn't go back now till early morning on the 30th which makes it easier for janet and just has to take nat out mid morning on wednesday to see his dentist for a 6 month cleaning/check at 9;45. she's booking into a motel in north conway, nh for june and it;s all set booked in june 25-29 as i really need it bad after the 3 deaths and stress of that and the holidays have to have time to recover and recharge! finally warming up to the lower 60s today and tomorrow, with rain tonight and boomers before the cold front moves on through tomorrow late afternoon/night and only 40s from friday-tues., then 50 on wed and 60s after that. hoping easter won't be a bugger either, but a good one so janet can walk to sunrise service in the dark then home in the light to do her famous breakfast inside cookout in the oven instead of outside. she's got more blogs and online stuff to try and get done asap if she can so she can either sit outside this afternoon while it lasts or get the other garden fence down and some new "old"chicken wire fencing back up and the poles with it. angels,ab,haley

errands tomorrow plus some shopping for things which are on sale and get them before they go off and then she's doing online food shopping for friday instead of going out.

march is in like a lamb,
but feels more like a lion thanks to the roaring winds ever since the cool front moved through when janet and nat were on their last of 3 errands yesterday. the angel in the picture is maitai who lived to be 18 and was blind at 14 and did just fine around the house as her full name was mollie-maui-molokai! janet tacked the extra names onto it as it sounded better. we were warm till the front did go through then you had to wear something as the wind makes it feel 10 degrees colder than it actually is which was 40 this morning and feels more like 30! we did get a few showers/light rain when janet and nat were out, but stopped in time as the sun was coming out around 2 when they walked the big block with pepper.
nobody scheduled for melon bar and it's her guess that they are wanting janet to do as much as she can before she leaves today at 10 which isn't much seeing she was to have gone up-stairs to do the computer work which has to be finished before the end of the day on friday and with the cut hours, no way by the looks are all going to get it done too. she will see about going up today before she leaves and the melon bar work just won't get filled so if upper management visits her and other stores they're gonna find empty spaces as they will on thurs-day as there's nobody scheduled for that or salad bar since janet now has it off and is working tomorrow instead!
she's taking mommy uptown late this afternoon to have the mole removed and will walk around town while it's being done and drop off an order at a sub/pizza spot on her way up and pick it up when she has to go back to get mommy and then come home or get it after she gets mommy and picks it up on their way home. doesn't matter either way to her. we'll be offline on thursday due to mommy's early morning appt. down in spring-field and stopping at ocean state job lot on their way home to see about some wool socks nat loves and needs to wear with the way the weather is up and down. we'll hit the 60s wed/thurs next week with showers on thursday. also 30s thurs/fri and like today/tomorrow this coming weekend and monday 40s! angels,ab,haley

❀ Mews from Mallow Castle ❀
It seems that when I had that “talk” with the fleas and gremlins about how they’d better quit messin’ around with our beloved CC or else, I musta thrown a scare into all you kitties too. Looks like we’re goin’ into our 4th day where NO one’s brave enough to climb up into the COTD window! Why, I musta even scared ‘em over at the other channels … Dog and Horse Channels’ Windows of Fame are also empty, while Bird and Small Animal Channels have had the same member in theirs since Saturday! And we won’t even talk about how long that Tank of the Week has been in the window over on Fish Channel!

Yeah, weird events are happenin’, but really, what would you expect with me in the Castle? None of it stops the kitties workin’ on their beer can boats. K. Bennie is doin’ a great job tendin’ the beer can shed and Angel Misty & her sisters have commandeered their Dad’s lawn tractor to help shuttle the cans to the various buildin’ projects.

Angels Gracie & Max have dibs on the Fosters, Bud Lite and Dad’s Root Beer empties for their vessel “Ol’ Rootie Tootie”. K. Tuck’s project is still under wraps, but he just took delivery of a coupla kegs and some beer taps? What IS that boy up to?

Spanky Jack is collectin’ Pepsi cans to put together a patriotic lookin’entry. He’s lookin’ for paint now to stencil the name on with. And that begs the question, when ya christen a beer can boat, just what DO ya use?

Angels Red, Moki, Duchess and Frosty’s creation is comin’ along so well that they are considerin helpin’ their Earthling sisters Mischief & Dayzee. MOST Angelic of ya, but remember we wanna keep Dayzee very very busy so she will stick close to home. Gin Gin has gotten together with Maggie Meme and her niece Spike and they are hard at work. Sebs & Timothy have gone for Labatts Blue and Strohs empties to create their masterpiece.

The mystery of Mimi’s missin’ Old Rats Breath empties has been solved. Turns out that her brothers Blackstone & Grayson ran off with ‘em and were playin’ a rousing game of Kick the Can. Psst … I think Mimi mighta kicked THEIR cans, know what I mean?

Close call at MY house, Mom almost found all the cans that Puzzle brought over and stuffed under Mom’s bed! Why, Mom mighta sent my little sis Moji Blackbear to Rehab if Evie hadn’t found the stash first! She’s cleared ‘em out and she & A. Shai and his sibs are all puttin’ ‘em to good use.

Throughout the grounds of Mallow Castle we hear the sounds of kitties at work with staplers, scissors, hammers and of course that miracle substance, duct tape. K. Steve had a little trouble with his glue gun, though. (whisper) I don’t think anyone will notice that patch of missin’ fur! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Good morning, loyal subjects! If anyone ain’t heard yet, Dayzee is HOME!!

And in that celebratory spirit, have I got a treat for ya today! My Royal Greenskeeper Q. Mimi has been workin’ hard and the climbin’ orchids look really great on the walls of Mallow Castle. Now that we found out who’s been markin’ his territory on ‘em and dealt with the problem in a timely fashion, that is. But Mimi wanted to have this appointment in the first place so that she could do a very special project for us.

Some of ya might remember that when Mimi was Queen CC had some ginormous issues and went down for a whole week! That is one entire week of Mimi’s time in the Castle just gone poof! And because of this outrage, my pal Mimi got Gremlin’d right outta some plans she had to build us a rockin’ Royal Extreme Adventure golf course! Well, that will never do! I told Mimi that durin’ my time as Queen we are gonna see if we can make her vision happen.

So without further ado, let’s grab our clubs, sign our waivers and try our luck. Circulatin’ around the course for our convenience will be Guest Chef Engine in her mobile Weiner Wagon, purveyin’ her finest cuisine. She has Crispy Canaries on sticks, Flash-Fried Filet of Frog and Buttered Bat Biscuits. And that’s just for starters, wait’ll we get to the clubhouse! Saucy Mouse Ribs with a side of Crispy Crouton and Catnip Casserole, anyone?

So, did I hear someone poo-pooh-in’ that golf is a boring game for old dudes? Not around HERE it ain’t! We are talkin’ Extreme Adventure after all! This means that OUR water hazard is not just a pretty pond, a big guy we affectionately call “Ol’ Toothy” has taken up residence and ya never know when he or his pals will show up to try & carry your clubs! I’d advise ya to tip’ em well! And remember, those large patches of sand are part of the golf course, NOT the emergency facilities.

There are some pictures down in my gallery, enjoy! Oh … and watch out for the last hole, it’s a doozie! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

we're trying to make our blogs
shorter due that janet is going to try and go into work, but if it's really slippery, then she has to wait till after 6 to call into produce to make sure that they get the message seeing the night crew writes it down, but leaves it at the front desk in-stead of giving it to the right departments so that the managers of those depts, or others working there don't get the messages. not fair janet says and she didn't get sick pay for the last time she did call in last monday when we got the 5-6" of snow which didn't come till late morning.
we did get 2" of snow/sleet mix and it was mixing with freezing rain when she was getting ready to come in from shov-eling and had finished it from 2-3 after also taking off what she could of her car and tarp which is being left over till she goes to leave for work otherwise it would be all icy and a mess to clean up again. as it is she's planning on leaving earlier to get there on time a half hour early should do just the right thing, but if she's late well better late than not at all. supposed to stop sometime this morning too and not go over to the plain rain till later on once temps have risen above freezing. she stayed till noon yesterday cutting all the fruits so the other girl who was doing veggies and things was just putting them together to get the bar all filled up if janet misses work today, then she has to go in tomorrow on her day off and work 6-11 or 7-12 doesn't matter as long as she is covering the day off somehow, but she'd rather have tomorrow off so will likely go in despite the crap this morning. angels,ab,haley

We had a blast yesterday pawtyin’ our whiskers off at Mallow Castle!

Now let’s tote up the Valentine’s Day carnage, shall we? First of all, at the MHL Arena we had a surprise weddin’ between Angel Shilo and Angel Q. Snuggles! Then our pal K. Pete announced his engagement to his sweetie Neekah Boo! My fellow Hairballz rider CoCo also got engaged to a nice kitty named Sunshine who’s a housemate of another of my fellow Hairballz riders, Maggie Meme. Congratulations, all you lovebirds!

I think the little guy with the arrows has packed ‘em away for another year and all you confirmed singles out there, the coast is clear.

Now that I’ve got a chance to read the weekend newspaper the Hairballz dropped off for me, what should I find but another brand-new lost & found story! It’s about a human named Robert Connell and his special friend, a gray kitty named Hemi.

The Connells were livin’ in North Carolina in 2009 when they found Hemi as a kitten on the engine of their car. Robert was in the Marines, and Hemi was more than just a cat to him. He was like a person, who could listen to some of Robert’s deepest thoughts as he struggled with PTSD.

In 2011, Robert was deployed for a year and after he left, Hemi went missin’.

“He went looking for Robert when he was deployed. I was heartbroken when he got out and we couldn’t find him,” Jennifer Connell told Love Meow. After months of searching, the Connells hadda make a move to North Dakota without their beloved pet.

Then, about two weeks ago Hemi was found by Craven Pamlico Animal Services at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point. Staffers found a microchip on him which led them to Robert & Jennifer Connell, who were stunned to get the good news all the way from North Carolina!

This cool story don’t end there, either. See, Hemi was scheduled to fly to his new home in Bismarck North Dakota, but the bad snow storms they’ve just had out that way meant that thousands of flights were cancelled, including Hemi’s. Did that stop Robert? No it did not! He decided to drive the close to 2,000 miles to bring home the beloved friend he hadn’t seen in four years.

Trinity Smith, Craven County animal control supervisor, tried to talk Connell out of the drive because of the bad weather he was certain to encounter along the way. A weekend blizzard walloped much of the eastern U.S., including parts of the Carolinas.

"But he's a Marine," she said.

Connell left home Saturday and arrived Monday afternoon at the shelter.

“Geez, you look a little older and wiser,” Connell told Hemi when he first saw him.

Craven Pamlico Animal Services took the opportunity to urge all pet owners to microchip their furry friends just in case they go missing, like Hemi. But we knew that already, didn’t we? ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Kitties are still relaxing around Mallow Castle, and after Queen MJ finishes sharing her last two Lost & Found stories kitties start to speak up about their own families’ experiences. Kelsee says:

“Mom told me that her Grandma moved away from Detroit up North to Oscoda and couldn't find her cat on the day she left, so they moved without it and came back several times to look for it at the house and never found it. But one day they heard a meow at the back door of the new house and lo and behold..that darn cat found her way to the new home all by herself...they knew it was her cause she still had her collar on”

Furry heads nod in agreement and Rhoamin adds:

“Mom and dad had a gray tabby named Spunky who hitched a ride one day and ended up in another town about 30 miles away!!!!

When he was about a year old, he had gotten hit by a log truck and amazingly survived with only having to amputate his tail as he had no control of it and a fractured pelvis. He looked like a Bobcat after his tail gone as he had the black fur tufts on both ears like a Bobcat.

One day, there was a Lin Care van at the neighbors and Spunky was a curious guy and got in the van. By time the driver got to his next destination he had been surprised by a cat! He asked the people if they could keep him till he could find the owners, as he had an idea the kitty was Mom & Dad’s. A week later when the man came back to the neighborhood he asked Mom if they were missing a kitty. He told Mom & Dad where Spunky was, so they called the people who were keeping him & made arrangements to go get him the next day. Turned out that they knew each other!!!!”

KC and the Zoo Crew have a story to tell too:

“Our Mom has had three cats go missing, and two of them were eventually reunited with her. The first cat got lost when the family moved. Mars came with them but apparently got lost the first time she was let out and ended up back in the old neighborhood. For months people would call saying they'd seen her and Mom would go looking, only to be disappointed. Then, after a full year, Mars showed up at the new house! There were identifying features that proved it was actually Mars come home. Mom was a teenager then and was so happy to have her cat back!”

Everyone smiles as Kelsee has the last word “...and people say dogs are smarter then us...NO WAY!!!!”

I’ve got no argument with THAT! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

♥ Mom~Lillian here to Thank You for Honoring TC on his Forever Sleep Anniversary of One Year on 2/09/2016 and also for the sweet gifts left for him.

♥ TC was about 1-1/2 to 2 years old when he showed up in our back yard. He wouldn't let us get close to him as he would swat with his polydactyl paws. After awhile he got to where he liked being petted, but only for a few seconds then the swatting would start. That boy was so full of life!

♥ I always called TC our "Free-Souled" boy! He originated two streets over from us, but ran away from his home cuz of the teenage son abused TC terribly. The dad felt really bad for TC, but tried to keep tabs on him to make sure he had food. He seen TC was cared for by us and told us why TC left and he was happy we took TC in.

♥ TC lived with us for a few years then xplored other places, but would come back to visit. He finally came back to live with us after going without food and had lost a lot of weight. He finally ended up getting sick so I had him stay in the back room where he loved being and lived out his time. TC was loved and knew it!

this is the last blog
for the day on cc as janet's gone through another page to get to a few others who disappeared off and are on our list of regulars to write to! might have to do that for one more we still want to say happy superbowl sunday even though we don't like or watch football at all! oh well at least the snow is down to 2" out there having melted/settled that much in the past few days and with more due in tomorrow afternoon before the first cold front janet's not walking when she gets in, but instead will be raking the crap off the roof or trying to get to what she can as we'll be near 46 today and that's prime melting stuff. she says likely the sides of the streets will be slushy and water running down the sides. just very happy that the storms coming as of right now won't amount to much, but aren't going to say more than that or jinx things like the last time when we got 5"! highs next two days only lower 30s then rising to 40 on wednesday and more melting just ahead of the coldest outbreak so far this year/season with highs only into the teens to 20 sat/sun and near 30 on friday all with below/above 0 for starts! not looking forwards to that, but once past it we'll be back near 40 and a sinker as of right now for tuesday next week. no appt.s this week in store, but one on wednesday next week when mommy has to have her hearing aide serviced, adjusted which shouldn't take to long. just happy the grocery shopping was done even though it was totally nuts at her and other stores yesterday due to all being out with nothing better to do as natty always says, their all loonies to which janet replied we're one of them today! she also had to get gas since there was only 1/3 left in her tank as she's been letting it go down that much. she's going up on the ladder to check gutters as well as rake the roof since nat shoveled twice on friday, this excuses him from doing this as he says it doesn't need it as it's melting, but master was like that back in '05 and that's when it leaked into janet's bedroom. no doubting things anymore like he's doing now! not much more has gone on so we'll go and see ya soon! angels,ab, haley

we're really short on time this morning
so will tell you highlights if you don't mind? janet found it was snowing when she left/got to work and was already starting to pile up, and when she got out took her 20 mins to get all the snow off as we had a lot more than predicted and 2" more after she got home too as it took a 40 mins to crawl home seeing the stupid town didn't plow till after the snow had stopped here around 2. nat was also put out that he ended up shoveling twice when janet said she would help, she didn't get out till he was almost done with the next door neighbors house her with pepper and then walking up the street and over to a relatively new conservation area off of bay road taking pict-ures. she stayed at work till 11:45 and took 40 mins to get home as it usually takes her 15 getting to/from there as the roads were in bad condition. got up to 45 yesterday so it was melting which was nice and will through wed. as temps will re-main for the most part a bit warmer than usual above freezing in the daytime and below it at night. really cold stuff holds off till thurs and next weekend when it'll go below to just above 0 for the first time this year and chances at snow will be minor so they say tues/wed/sat and the bigger one on the 15th. janet says since grocery shopping was put off from yes-terday till today that she will not work past her 11 today, but will stay tomorrow as late as they want her. angels,ab, haley

WELCOME TO THE CAT CHANNEL URBAN IDITEROD!!

Actually, so many kitties wanted to involve their canine pals that I’m invitin’ the NICE Kitties’ brother King Angel Spike from Dog Channel for a cross-Channels event. The race starts at King Spike’s Castle and runs through four checkpoints with the finish line at Mallow Castle.

Guest Chefs Colt, Winchester and Kimber are on hand as the kitties start to arrive, they have trays of their famous fudge, shaped into crowns and stars for the occasion. Very artisitic, ladies! No gobblin’, you doggies!

At the starting line waits Puzzle, curled up in his cozy cat bed with the green flag in his paw. When King Angel Spike announces the start of the race, Adorkable smacks Puzzle hard. He wakes up, waves the flag and …. THE RACE IS ON!!

An early lead is taken by Team Zoo Crew, with their big doggies Lokje and Jada dressed like cats and pullin’ hard while Sasha, Pique, KC and the kitties mush ‘em on! With an actual Malamute and Husky to pull ‘em, this team is gonna be hard to beat but Team NICE might just be able to pull it off! Trixie and Patches are mushin’ their sibs and the family dogs like experts!

Reachin’ the first checkpoint at the MHL Arena, Team Whiskers has surged ahead. Lookin’sharp in their Russian fur hats K. Whiskers, Callie, Orangie & Whitey have recruited some doggy friends they met on their stroller walks, promisin’ them gumbo and fudge for pullin’ the cart. Winchester & Angel Chyna are ready to make good on that promise. As the teams pass the checkpoint they receive mugs of Jambalaya Gumbo with mild or hot sauce to keep ‘em goin’ along the course.

For a while, Team Whiskers is neck in neck with Team Royal Squadron, where K. Pete is helpin’ Ms. Murphy & Raven pull a shoppin’ cart decorated to look like a plane, while Q. Talley hollers “mush!” and waves to her hubby as her team manages to pass his. “For now!” calls K. Whiskers with determination and promises the doggies more fudge.

Next checkpoint is the DC Dog Park where Commere and Tank are dishin’ out gumbo as fast as their paws can go! Here comes Team Georgia Peach, where Q. Gin Gin has decorated her cart with camellia blossoms and catnip sprigs and VI Kitties Crush, Cashmere and Cisco are pullin’ like mad, with some help from Gin Gin’s neighbour doggie.

Team Screamin’ Mimi was ready to start this mornin’ at first light, and they have been holdin’ their own ever since! Q. Mimi is dressed as a hula dancer complete with grass skirt as she mushes her brothers JC, Maxwell, Blackstone and Greyson along.

Ooops! I ran outta room … the race continues tomorrow! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

as you can see
yes, we did change the pictures which nat chose another of the angels and next moth it'll either be poppy, puffy, or maitai. this one was his favorite mouthie or ralph mouth and a very hand some maine coon we had till he was 12 then renial failure claim-ed his life as his kidneys stopped working much similar to sandy but she had kidney disease and failure as well as rapid onset demensia. well both are in the picture so janet has her fav-orite and so does natty! the other is ab who thinks she belongs to natty and stays with him all the time, unlike haley who spends more of her time with janet than natty or mommy now, but still is his kitty.
they did get out after she got in to the bank, then staples where mommy got a tablet which they are sending to her as there wasn't any in stock and then target where janet and nat picked up a few food items as well as milk as it's good and is cheaper there than aldi's or the local gas stations. we did hit 60 late morning then the cool front moved through and temps started to tumble into the lower 50s for the afternoon and upper 40s by late afternoon. we had 38 yesterday morning and are back down to 26 here this morning going to the upper 40s to near 50. tomorrow rain showers in the morning to heavy rain 1/2-1" coming in totaled with the heavier rain and 60! then down we go to the lower 40s through next wednesday. also a sinker 1-3" slop before to rain and then into reverse mode for wed ending as 1" white stuff as it moves away and temps dropping to the lower 30s for daytime highs. knew that the arctic cold would be back and there you have it 6 weeks away till spring! nothing today janet's hoping on getting the walk and outside to pick up sticks/branches and put them into boxes in the garage to stay dry for using for the grill in the summertime. haley,ab,haley

January 31 ~ Angel Mallow's last word ~
Wow, the last day of my campaign is here! It looked for a while there like the CC Gremlins were gonna try and keep me off the Throne, not to mention from postin’ my final campaign blog, but we pulled it off! Whew! I was gonna do a wrap-up speech today, but then I realized I just might have one last Lost & Found story to tell. It’s about our Angel Smokey and the second time Big Bro Joe saved his life.

One day when Smokey was about 10, he didn’t come in for supper. Which was unusual. And he wasn’t there in the mornin’, either. OR when the kids got home from school.

The kids and the pawrents looked all over, Mom dismantled the woodpile in the back yard, they checked the shed to make sure he didn’t get locked in and checked every hidin’ place they could think of. They walked around the neighbourhood but no sign of Smokey. Everyone was worried, but Big Bro Joe was a young man on a mission! As soon as he came home from school, never mind playin’ or watchin’ TV, he was out lookin’ for his Smokey!

The third day, Joe came runnin’ into the house “I found Smokey!” Mom went out and sure enough there he was, tucked into a little cubby that the humans didn’t even realize existed, where two sections of fence overlapped right at the end of the neighbours’ hedge. Smokey wasn’t stuck, he could come out
by himself but wouldn’t. When Mom reached to touch him, he growled at her! So Dad came out with his big coat and leather gloves, Mom held a baby quilt while Dad reached into the cubby & pulled out Smokey, who still had some fight in him but not very much. Dad plopped Smokey into the blanket, Mom wrapped him up tight and they were off to the vet.

Turned out that Smokey had a really nasty abscess and needed surgery right away. Poor guy had crawled into that little hidey spot to be safe while he sat at the foot of the Rainbow Bridge and waited for the Angels. But thanks to Big Bro Joe it wasn’t time for that yet.

After Smokey did cross and I came to live with the family, one of the things he came back to teach me was that if ya don’t feel right, stick close to the humans. And I listened.

========================
I wanna take this time to say thanks to all of you who have come along on my campaign with me. Thanks for the comments, the support, the laughs, the goodies and of course the votes. I have some fun things planned for my time in the Castle in February, and I hope you’ll enjoy ‘em.

Let’s all give a round of thanks to King Miles for his great reign as King of January!

Come tomorrow: It’s a Marshmallow World!!

One very cool thing about yesterday's story, I got a blog this mornin' from the Pawty Animals, and their Mom knows the part of Petaluma and the creek where Dallas woulda been livin' those 13 years. She says it's quite a wilderness area with lotsa small critters and fish in the creek, and feral colonies too. Still, 13 years is a LONG time, especially in feral years!

~ A. Mallow's Lost & Found - Jan 29th ~
Marmie: LOST!!

This story’s a two parter to round out my campaign. It happened in 2014 in England, and my family had a front-row seat to watch it unfold because the kitty involved usedta be one of our compadres on a site called ShowmeCats.

It all started with a great big orange fluffy kitty named Marmalade, who had been with his special person Tracy Brewster of Maidstone, Kent for 13 years. Marmie, as Tracy called him, was his Mom’s pampered baby and had been with her longer than her current husband. The husband wasn’t current for long, as it happens, things went bad and the couple separated. Then on July 21, 2014 Marmie vanished from a walk in the enclosed yard of his house.

Tracy was frantic, and all the more so when it came out that her ex was responsible for Marmie’s disappearance. He appeared in court charged with taking the kitty, was found guilty but spitefully refused to say anything about Marmie’s whereabouts other than that he had turned him loose “somewhere”.

Tracy did not take this lyin’ down, she actually quit her job and devoted herself to searching for Marmalade full-time. Soon she had a group of supporters she called "Marmie’s Army", who helped distribute posters, flyers and publicize Marmie’s cause through media interviews and a FB group called "Find Marmie". Tracy told TV and newspapers:

“We are desperate to find Marmie – a friendly, long haired ginger cat who has been stolen and dumped somewhere. Marmalade is a beautiful, long haired, light ginger neutered male cat. He has a freckled right eye and a bald lower belly. He is microchipped. He is totally and utterly adored by his mum who is desperate and devastated without him .”

Tracy also had a Twitter feed and the “Find Marmie” FB page soon had upwards of 2,400 followers. The UK news media took Marmalade to heart and his story was followed nationwide. An article on Page 3 of the London Daily Telegraph summed up:

“Rarely has the search for a cat been carried out with such passion and heroic persistence. The story has been widely featured in the press.”

So does the Marmie Army come through? Ya just hafta wait till tomorrow.

Same CAT-time, same CAT-Channel!

janet should be out walking but if she were to
try taking any pictures of birds, then it's kind of dark to do that and nothing really would come out! she's going east on bay road down to the elf hill loop which is closer than the other blocks she walks minus the lower middle st. one of course, but decided to do this instead of the lower west st. block as she said it's likely she'd see a lot of birds, but wouldn't get home till after 8 as it is it's just about 7 now and she should've been out there earlier. guess what we are at 40 now and headed to 50 today and mid 50s tomorrow, then back to the lower to mid 40s for the rest of this week. but come sunday the mid to upper 50s and RAIN on wednesday before going back to the mid to upper 30s which it should be here this time of the year. twc shows that feb is going to be a lot like dec was with 50s and maybe making it to 60 as well and any storms will be more like heavy wet crap, sinkers to rain, or all rain which is what we're voting for! at least we have a warm up and are hoping mommy will get out and do some walking up the street as it'll be warm enough for her to do so and with nat beside her she will do just fine! that stupid wind is still blowing something and likely will bother janet later on today, but she says she has to learn to take it in stride even though she woke up and had to have the tv help to relax her she finally slept through again till 5 this morning got up and has been blogging since and is now on this page after finishing the one single page we do on the other side. says she might go back and get others through other friends as we don't wander beyond the first page anymore and many know it too as we've told them. just overjoyed that the next 3 months will be warmer than usual with of course cold spells can't forget them right mixed in as well. seems time for her to stop and get out there and "HOOF IT" walking so this will be the last blog for now. the windows likely will be opened up a bit later on and the heat turned down as well and for sure sun-wed when we hit the mid to upper 50s here. janet worked ot 1 hour so made up 21/2 of the 5 hours which were chopped from her schedule and her boss says depends on the day to if she stays again or not. angels,ab,haley she's made up 31/2 of those missed hours! :)

Come visit me, ana bonana and haley & 5 angels.

Jan 24th Angel Sunday ~ Angel Smokey ~
Don’t ask my brother Angel Smokey “were you born in a barn?”, because he’ll say YES and be proud of it! Here’s his story:

“One day a family came to visit, bringing four little humans. We kittens weren't afraid, we let them pet us and love us and pick us up!

“When the visit was over I was in the back seat of the car with those kids on my way to my new forever home! I had never lived in a house before, there were all kinds of new experiences for me and it was the beginning of a very wonderful life together. I’m proud to say that I helped to raise those kids into grown humans who respect and love animals!

“My favourite was Big Bro Joe, and here’s part of the reason. When I was about 2 years old the humans noticed I was having trouble peeing. Dad took me straight to the vet and the news was that I had a urinary blockage and needed surgery right away or I would die. Mom & Dad had four little kids and not a lot of money, and when he heard how much the surgery would cost Dad thought there was no choice but to send me over the Bridge. After all, he said, who knew how long a cat might live anyway?

“Dad came home to tell Mom and the kids so they could have a chance to say goodbye. Well, Big Bro Joe who was six years old broke into tears. I was his special friend who slept with him every night and he didn’t want me to go over the Bridge! He pleaded “You can have all the money in my bank account, just please save Smokey”. Dad’s heart was really touched and he called the vet, who said there was one procedure they could do that cost a lot less, in fact about the same as it would have cost to send me over the Bridge. The problem was that it could only fix the problem this one time, it might not stay fixed for long, and they’d have to change my food for the rest of my life if there was any hope of my never getting another blockage.

“Everyone said DO IT!! So they did, and soon I was home and doing great. Mom & Dad found a store brand with an acceptable ash content and for the rest of my life Dad bought it by the case whenever it came on sale.”

The rest of Angel Smokey’s life turned out to be another 15 years, and when his time did come to cross the Bridge it was Big Bro Joe who held him as he started on his way.

yes, tears just came her her eyes
with the kind words that you said and that she knows that it's going to take a little time for things to work out and get out of her system as they always do and will fade in time with just the wonderful memories she had of both of them! :) just so happy that he and god are looking out for us here and that the storm will be staying just to the south of the ma/ct line as that's the cutoff point now for the snow and been downgraded again to just flurries this afternoon/tonight. just the wind chills which were really bad earlier this week will be back this afternoon/tonight till the storm pulls away as tomorrow we'll have sunny and upper 30s for highs to melt more of the crap which we got still from late last month and this month in spots to melt and go away. knowing too that there's a big storm around the corner which we could get hit with at any given time. now we're praying for those in the spots from the shorelines south and inland where all the bad weather is happening as we have too been through it before as well back in october of '11 when snowtober happened before halloween.
janet stayed an hour over yesterday cutting cases of fruit and her asst. boss/boss were putting the stuff together yesterday when she left at noontime. wonder if she'll get asked today and tomorrow to stay and do veggie platters for the big game the pats/broncs are playing tomorrow afternoon or not. angels,ab,haley

janet says closer to valentine's day she will ask
nat to pick two more pictures and janet's hoping to find some of the other angels as we do have puffy or mouthie at least we think which nat can take pictures of with janet's camera and up load them so she will be able to put them up here with his help and on fb as well. we were +4-+9 wind chills feels like the past two days and actual lower 20s. it was 20 when janet got up and then when she walked the big block just before 7 this morning and got a few pictures off, heard 2 cardinals/chickadees singing mating songs, so spring can't be that far off as they are already turning their bright red colors they are famous for. highs today into the lower 30s through friday with wall to wall sunshine. then a snowstorm for sat afternoon-sunday morning and right now they are saying between 4-8" here depending on the path the storm takes, as south of the mass pike you go to the mid atlantic states a foot or more of snow there. warming up for sun/wed-fri mid-up-per 30s and lower 40s for mon/tues of next week a big turn around from the freezer weather we've had the past week for sure! nat told janet his appt. isn't for 10:15 he was told orignally it's for 10 then wait till 10:30 for mommy's and er rands after that so it's likely they won't be home again till noontime or early afternoon. anyways once they are home, janet is going straight out for her other walk seeing she missed walking the past two days due to the cold! she could hear the sinus infection as it's up there, but not as bad as it would have been if she hadn't taken zicam and vitamin c as well as plenty of sleep/water the past week when she had the sore throat for nearly a full week! at least spring is only 8 weeks away now. got to get onto the next blog if janet's to finish all of cc before they leave at 9:45-50. angels,ab,haley

Here I am again, CC’s own little gray & white Scheherazade! I’m sure glad I don’t hafta do this for 1001 Arabian Nights, mol, though I’m sure the stories are out there!

This one comes by way of the KC Pet Project in Kansas City MO, and it’s about how they helped a tomcat who’d been missin’ from his special person for 7 long years!

The kitty’s name is Lutece, and he belonged to Franc, an Executive Chef in Kansas City. Lutece disappeared from his owner during a move back in 2008. He never returned home, even with Franc going back over and over again for several months to search for him. But in May 2015 someone turned a stray tomcat with an injured paw in to KC Pet Project. They scanned for a microchip and found one.

“We weren’t able to reach anyone at the phone numbers listed for him,” rescue workers said “but Franc had listed a friend as an emergency contact for his cat’s microchip registration who help us get in touch with him.”

When Franc, who is from France, saw Lutèce he began speaking to him in French as he did so long ago. Lutèce, who had been a very quiet kitty in the shelter, immediately began meowing back loudly and extending his paw to Franc through the kennel door. The rescue workers said their hearts just melted!

“For a kitty to be perceived as a community cat for many years to turn out to be an owned kitty and be microchipped for all this time is pretty cool. It's spectacular,” said Stephanie Bell, with KC Pet Project.

“It's a miracle that this was happening,” said happy catdad Franc.

And Lutece? He didn’t have too much to say except “youch”. See, Franc decided it was about time to get his pal neutered, and he had KC Pet Project take care of that right away.

PS from A. Mallow
Mom went whole hog with me. I had the microchip, but in case I got lost & no one thought to check for one, I had my collar (the stretchy kind, so it would slip off if I got stuck somewhere) with a tag that had my name & phone number. Plus the tag the vet gave me that said I have a microchip & had THEIR phone number on it. Plus a third tag the vet gave me for havin' my rabies shots up to date. You would not believe how loud I could rattle those tags when I tossed my head if I was in a snit about somethin', mol. OR how quiet I could keep 'em when I wanted to. Never hurt my huntin' a bit!

There’s frost all over the ground and on my whiskers too, but I am here with yet another happy story!

The one I have for ya today comes all the way from Staffordshire, Engand, and it’s about an orange & white kitty named Jesse, 18 months old, who in May of 2006 was headed to the vet for his (whisper ) s-h-o-t-z .. I mean –s. Well, guess Jesse didn’t like those things any more than the rest of us do. Or maybe his crate wasn’t fastened just right. Or maybe both.

Anyway, things went wrong and Jesse "… hurled himself at the front of the cat box and broke the door off," said his owner, Lesley Corbett.

"He was last seen heading off up by the side of the vet's and running hell for leather."

The Corbett’s six year old daughter Grace was devastated, because Jesse had been a special present just for her and she loved him a whole bunch. The whole family searched the town for days and put up posters. "We always hoped he was being looked after somewhere and, at some point, he might find his way back home," Mrs. Corbett told the BBC. But as years went by, that hope was getting’ pretty thin.

Fast forward to February 2014, when the Corbetts got a call from the vet … yes, the SAME vet, who told them that another client had brought in a stray cat that had been hanging around their house, and that the kitty’s microchip showed he was their missing Jesse! Aside from a minor leg injury, Jesse was healthy.

'My daughters burst into tears as soon as I walked through the door with him – they have never forgotten him.’ Mrs. Corbett said. 'At first he didn’t appear to recognise us. But now that he’s been in the same house with everyone for a week, he’s beginning to realise who we are.'

'We have no idea where Jesse had been for eight years, all we know is he’s happy and healthy and we are so happy to have him back."

We hear that Jesse is bein’ just a bit spoiled these days … and I say he’s earned it!

the other cc page is done
so janet's racing down this one and says you're the first off of our page this morning. we did not get the freezing drizzle, yipee she's saying as she covered her car up with the tarp which comes out when they say anything dealing with freezing crap or white stuff. see we're not saying the bad words. but do have 1-2" of rain coming in between tonight and tomorrow morning as it's supposed to taper off and be just partly cloudy come monday with a high around 31 and then a sinker coming in late on tues into wed, first in 3 weeks we've had a weekday storm which might have schools closing early who knows what'll happen wed. morning though. there goes the planned trip to greenfield to the dmv to get mommy's id an janet's got to check her license as she's not sure if it expires tomorrow or not she thinks it's next year, but isn't sure. if not then she will end up going up there straight from work on monday to get it or come home get nat and mommy and take them with her so mommy can get her id done too. at least this weekend she thinks will be quiet so no running around like almost every day except for one this week which flew by. she was back in the sink at work for the first time thurs/yesterday doing lettuces thurs and cookers yesterday and today likely back helping with melon bar and back into the swamp she's not sure tomorrow or not. she still has to do the stupid samples and get the out of dates off the shelf that way it's faster for the ones who come in later on around 8 not to have to take the time to do it. angels,ab,haley

Yeah, you DO gotta wonder where Bandit was all that time! And I'm sure his people do! He musta had some other people takin' care of him at least parta the time, because outdoor kitties don't tend to make it 13 years out there in the world!
