Hi Angel Wicket, Baby and family!
Give your sweet Mom a warm , comforting hug for us! We wanted to leave this poem for you to read to her and hopefully put a smile on her face! We always have your family in our prayers buddy! Purrs and hugs to you!

A Christmas Mouse =^.^=
~~~~~
A little mouse crept slowly up to the Christmas tree.
He thought that he would borrow an ornament or three.
The cat was found there snoozing, he was really quite asleep.
And so the mouse quietly tip toed, he didn’t make a peep.

He peeked from behind the davenport, he was in the clear.
The cat yawned and stretched just then it filled him with such fear.
But soon the sleepy cat settled back into his nap
And the little mouse avoided a cat and mouse mishap.

The mouse climbed up the tree trunk, he smelled the fresh cut pine.
He broke off just a bit of branch, "This Christmas branch is mine!"
He took a golden Christmas bell and tied it like a hat
Then scurried down the Christmas tree and past the sleeping cat.

He set the branch into a spool and it became his tree.
Decked his halls with the golden bell; it filled his heart with glee.
Then bravely cross the room again to fetch a candy cane
He hurried to the lit up tree into the cat's domain.

There on the highest branch he saw a red and white-stripped glint.
Happily he grabbed a hold of the yummy peppermint.
But just then he lost his balance and he fell head over heels
Tumbling thru tinsel and lights, crying out in mousey squeals.

The cat woke up and looked about, he looked around the house.
He looked beside the Christmas tree but didn't see the mouse.
It took just a few more minutes for the cat to nestle in
And the mouse took up his candy and snuck past him with a grin.

He couldn't have predicted, there was nothing to foresee
How could the mouse have known he was allergic to the tree?
Half way across the room the mouse could feel a little tease
Just the very beginning of a little mousey sneeze.

Ah ah ah...the mouse stood still there clutching his candy cane.
Ah ah ah...to sneeze a sneeze right now would just be so insane!
Ah ah ah...he couldn't help it...Ah ah ah ah ah ah chooooo!
And with that, the cat woke up and said, "Merry Christmas! God bless you!"

We just heard a big, loud clap of thunder and it's pouring rain outside. We all ran under the bed until Mom coaxed us back out. We hadn't heard thunder in a while, thank goodness!

Give your dear Mom a warm hug for us. We sure wish she was feeling a little better. We always have her in our prayers. Keep up the great work looking after her. We know your love for her must work wonders!

Hi Angel Wicket, Baby and family!
Hey dear furiends! My Mom finished her Christmas shopping today and wrapping all her packages to mail to San Diego for her family. Mom is going to visit GM after the holidays, since GM will have lots of company for Christmas and New Years. Mom thought January would be better to visit. Us cats are happy!

We're running behind today, so give your sweet Mom a hug for us and let her know we always have her and the family in our prayers!

Hi Angel Wicket, Baby and family!
It's kind of cold out here today, but my Mom left one of the windows open a crack so we can hear the water from the creek running. It sounds wonderful!

My Mom was out in the backyard sweeping all the wet leaves off the deck. Both trees lost all their leaves finally in the storm yesterday. Callie and I wanted to go out, so she let us, but as soon as we got our paws wet we were ready to come back inside. It's much nicer inside with the heater on on as we nap next to the Christmas tree.

We have your sweet Mom in our prayers dear furiends. Give her a warm angel kitty kiss for us.

We are getting the storm that was predicted! The rain was coming down so hard for a couple of hours, we could hardly see outside the window. Right now it has let up a little. My Mom is too afraid to check the creek. She'll wait until Dad gets home.

Hi Angel Wicket, Baby and family!
My Mom is still getting ready for the storm. We were all watching her form the back glass door while she swept leaves off the deck and cleans the lower rain gutter one last time. The leaves are still falling from one tree and keep filling up the gutter. We think we're ready for the rain!

We hope your Mom is resting today and staying warm. Give her a soft angel kitty hug for us. Baby and K. Spongie too! We have all of you in our prayers.

Hi Angel Wicket, Baby and family!
Oh dear sweet Angel Wicket. We cried when we read how much your sweet Mom is missing you during the Christmas holiday. I guess you liked to eat ham for your special Christmas treat. I bet they have honey baked ham up in Heaven, just for you buddy. It's especially hard during the holidays to miss those you love. So many memories. But hopefully the memories your Mom has of you will make her smile someday soon. You were quite a character!

Give K. Spongie, Baby, and your precious Mom a soft angel hug for us. We always have your family and you in our prayers dear furiend.

Sending you soft purrs and warm hugs.

Hey my dear angel furiend and fursib! We had the sun out today, but the backyard is filled with wet leaves so Mom wouldn't let us out until she raked and swept the backyard clean for us. Ah! It was nice to get out in the fresh air, if only for a few hours. My Mom was in and out today and tomorrow more Christmas shopping. Hope it's all for us cats! Hee, hee, hee.

We hope your Mom has been able to eat a little bit. Try to get her to sip some chicken soup. We know you kitties are keeping a good watch over your sweet Mom. Give her warm hugs for us and whisper in her ear that lots of people and kitties are praying for her. Maybe we can make her smile.:)

Hi Angel Wicket, Baby and family!
Well the humans kept asking for rain and they sure are getting it! Dad had to leave an hour early to work because the news this morning was reporting flooding on many of the streets and highways that he takes. He did make it to work, but it was scary driving.

We are all fine, catnapping in our windows and watching the rain fall. Every now and then a big gust of wind will rattle the windows and we all scatter! MOL!

We have your Mom in our prayers dear furiend. We hope and pray the doctors will soon be able to help her feel better. We know you kitties are taking good care of her. Give her some soft kitty hugs for us. We love you guys.

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

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

We left a vote with purrs, hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need. Give your sweet Mom a big, warm Happy Birthday hug for us! We love you guys and always have you in our prayers.

Can you believe we are bracing up for a big rain storm to begin tomorrow?! These humans can never make up their minds. They either pray for rain, or cry when too much falls from the sky. MOL! We're all warm and cozy inside, so we say Let It Pour!

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

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

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

We left a vote with purrs, hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need. Be sure to give your Mom some angel kitty kisses for us. We always her and the family in our prayers.

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

Whiskers who were seated on another log some distance away. The vixen’s (term for a female fox) name was Serena, and she said, “Pete…. I’ve heard about you, Are you the cat who flew down to save Thomas?” Pete smiled, I was one of the cats who helped rescue Thomas, but he’ll be explaining to everyone what happened. Angels Lucy and Sylvie came from the cave opening and the kits stopped their play and stared in awe. Angel Sylvie sat down on a tree stump and called them over. She gave them gentle pets and told them how wonderful they were. They stared at her wings and asked if they could touch her robe. She laughed and stroked their red fur. The boys sat quietly on either side of her while their sister crawled into her lap. A family of deer, with two fawns, a handsome buck and a beautiful doe arrived and settled in to wait. Over the course of the afternoon more than a hundred animals made their way to the clearing and toured the cave shelter. When it was time, Thomas prepared to speak. He walked on his crutches to the entrance of the cave and then turned to face the gathered animals, who sat in a semi-circle facing him. He looked around recognizing many friends and acquaintances. He spoke in a loud clear voice. “Good afternoon, I know many of you, and for those of you I haven’t met before, my name is Thomas. I was born in this forest grew up and met my beautiful wife. We have two wonderful children. The forest has always provided for us, but as you know winter is always a hard time. Last winter, particularly was difficult. The elders among us expect this coming winter to be as hard or harder than the last. We’ve all heard stories and legends of an Eden like place to the northeast. I heard from many of our wise elders that there was such a place and we’ve all heard the stories of angels who appear to help when help is needed. On my last hunting trip, I had decided to go to the river and gather crayfish for us to have for our dinner. Many of you know the place that I go to to catch crayfish. The path down the cliff to the river is dangerous, but I’ve always been careful and I even marked handholds, so that others could use the trail if they wished.”
There was a murmur of assent as many of the animals acknowledged that they had used Thomas’s path.
Thomas continued, “On my last visit to the River, I was just swinging over the edge when a Red Tail Hawk attacked me and I lost my balance. I fell down the cliff for a long ways and I landed on a ledge. I broke both of my legs in the fall, but the hawk wasn’t through with me. He attacked me again, but this time I was ready and I was

able to slash his throat and killed him. He was what I had to eat. There was a crack in the rock, where a trickle of water came out, and I was able to survive on the hawk, some ants and the little seep of water. I lasted two weeks, and then the hawk was all gone and I still hadn’t figured a way to climb back up. I never gave up hope and I prayed almost continuously that the Lord would find a way to bring me back to Annabella, Ralph and Rosie. Then when I was at the limits of my endurance, I heard a rush of wind and I looked up and a black and white cat was descending down to me.”
Several cats in the crowd whispered and pointed to where Pete and Whiskers were sitting with Angels Lucy and Sylvie.
Thomas said, “I thought it was an angel coming to take me to heaven. Then he spoke to me and told me that his name was Pete, and that my wife sent him to bring me home. I asked him if I could get cleaned up before she saw me and he told me that he was afraid that couldn’t happen, that Annabella was in the helicopter. I strained to look up and could see a big flying machine, a helicopter hovering over us. Cats aboard the helicopter sent down a stretcher and Pete helped me into and strapped me in. Then I was lifted up and into it. The first face II saw was my beloved Annabella. A pretty young kitty was flying the helicopter and she was talking to kitties at the hospital on the radio. She told them we would be there soon, and to be ready! They sent the cable back down and brought Pete back up and we flew like the wind. The doctors at the hospital mended my legs and gave me medicine to help the pain. They didn’t ask for any payment and when I was out of the hospital, they gave us the food and shelter that we needed. The only thing that they asked was that I helped them let my friends in the forest know about these shelters. I told Pete, that we had heard stories about a cat called St Peter, and do you know what he told me? He said that he wasn’t a saint; he was just a cat who had been Blessed by the Lord with very good fortune, and that he was trying to get through this life leaving behind more good than bad.” There was a murmur again and lots of the animals pointed to Pete and Whiskers.
Thomas said, In a moment I’ll introduce you to Pete and his brother Whiskers, but first I want you to know that this cave is only one of a dozen shelters that have been provided by kind animals for our benefit. The first point I want to make this afternoon, is that using these shelters does not obligate you in any way. When spring

comes, you’re all free to return to your homes in the forest or join the community in what you call Eden, and what Pete and his family call the castle community. The decision is yours. Now I’ll ask Pete Whiskers and his sister, Angels Lucy and Sylvie to come forward and say hello to you all. After that, the cave shelter will be open for you to inspect. You can ask any of any questions and we’ll answer them.”
Pete, Whiskers, Lucy and Sylvie came forward. Pete stepped to the front and said, “Good afternoon, everyone, I want to thank you for coming to hear what Thomas has to tell you. I just wanted to add that Thomas makes it sound like we did something heroic in bringing him back to his family, but the credit goes to his wife who brought herself and her children on a difficult journey to find us. She gave us the clues that we could use to figure out where Thomas might be and her determination and dedication to Thomas is what saved him. My family and I were just instruments that the Lord placed at her disposal.” There was a little round of applause. Pete continued, “Every word Thomas told you is true. There are no obligations, and if there is something that you need that isn’t in a shelter all you have to do is ask and it will be provided. Last winter, as I was sitting warm and cozy in our house I realized that the winter could be deadly to those without shelter. I couldn’t live with the thought of what could happen to the most vulnerable animals, The young and the old and I decided that our family would try to help. Some of you may know Mitch and Pearl who helped with the shelters last year, they decided to become a part of the community, others went back to the forest and I see some familiar faces. I would ask that those of you who spent last winter in the shelters, please tell your friends what it was like and that you are free to decide what life is best for you and your families. I’ll let my brother Whiskers say a few words, and then Angels Lucy and Sylvie will show you all the shelters and point out where the supplies are and how to use any of the equipment.” Pete introduced Whiskers.
Whiskers said, “Welcome all of you, I don’t have much to add, Thomas and Pete said most of what needed saying, but I do want to say, that I’m so very happy to meet all of you. Last winter we made some wonderful friendships and we hope to do the same this year. I know that some of you have expressed concern about animals of different species living in close proximity, and I say that these shelters are stocked with plenty of food, water, medicine and anything that a guest is likely to need. Unlike humans, we don’t kill for fun, Last year the animals lived in peace, and we

expect the same to be true this year. Our Angel sisters will be watching over you and you will be safe!”
Angel Lucy and Sylvie ascended into the air over the crowd and sprinkled angel dust on them.
Whiskers said you’ve received the blessing of healing angel dust and all of us give you our word, we will do everything we can to make your winter a happy and safe one. Each shelter has a phone that we will show you how to use and if anyone has any need that isn’t being met, call us. That’s all I had to say, so now Lucy and Sylvie will show you the shelters. All of us will be with you as you look them over and if you have questions stop us, ask us, and we’ll answer them. Thank you for your attention.”
Lucy led the way, and as each animal entered Sylvie gave them a gift bag. They were shown the bedding, the food lockers, the medical supplies, The kitchen and food preparation areas, and the entertainment and enrichment supplies. More than once Thomas heard someone say, “This really is paradise!”
At the end of the tour, Thomas gathered everyone outside and asked, “How many of you think you want to join us for the winter? Give us a show of paws please.”
Virtually every paw was raised. Thomas nodded, “The shelters are always open and they will be replenished every day.”
The young mother fox shouted, “Thomas, I know that we don’t have any obligation, I believe you when you say that, but how can we show our appreciation?”
Thomas said, “That’s easy, take care of your babies, love them, teach them right from wrong and have a good life!”
Pete nodded and said to Thomas, I couldn’t have said it better myself.
Thomas said, “I know you all want to get home before full dark, but before you go we just want to thank you again for coming!”
The applause started in the back, and filled the clearing. An elderly gray tabby cat approached Pete and said, “Young man, your momma must be very proud of you, does she still live?”

Pete said, “Yes sir she does and I hope she’s proud.”
The old cat gave Pete a hug and asked him if he played checkers. When Pete said that he did, the tabby said, “Stop by the shelter and let’s play a few games!”
Pete promised that he would. Whiskers, Thomas, Sylvie and Lucy were all surrounded by the forest animals answering questions and chatting. It was nearly full dark when the last of the guests left, Rocky, Flower and Ralph came out of the cave and had already made a list of what would need to be replenished. The had spent the afternoon talking with other young animals about how the shelters worked and the games and activities that were available.
Rocky ran up to Theodore and asked, “What do you think dad, how did it go?”
Theodore looked at all of them and said, I think it went perfectly. It’s a good thing that Pete and Whiskers are such good cats because they could both talk a tiger out of his stripes.”
Thomas laughed. “Theodore, it’s easy for them they both just open their mouths and whatever is in their hearts comes rolling out.”
Angels Lucy and Sylvie asked, “Theodore we’d love to have you and your family join us for dinner tomorrow night, will you do that. We’d love to meet your daughter Violet and your wife Melba.”
Theodore said, “I reckon it’s time. We’d be honored to join you!”
Lucy said, “Our house, seven thirty.”
Pete smiled, the day was perfect!
