Hi Angels Sherman & Shelby Happy New Year!
Weekend blog: CATching up on the past week. Sent Mom off to work every morning again after the long holiday weekend.Was expecting snow Thursday into Friday, but it didn’t; just a little dusting of white. Yesterday we helped mom do the laundry. I ran downstairs to the basement & checked behind the storage racks & made sure there were no mice. Shadow made it down to the second step at the top of the stairs. Mom’s finally caught Shadow to brush his fur; usually he keeps running & hiding under furniture MOL!! We’re having fun chasing the laser lights we got for Christmas especially the length of the first floor from front door to back door. Now we’re expecting snow Tuesday through Wednesday, but not counting on it just yet. Saying prayers for our furfriends whose pawrents are recovering from illnesses. Have a great week & we’ll CATch up again next week with our blogs. Purrs, Terri

Hi Angels Sherman & Shelley
I'm beginning to feel like myself again. This morning I went up to mom & let her pet me. Ate a good breakfast too. love that tilapia & chicken by Weluva.it has lots of gravy.
We're getting the end of that storm that hit the Mid-west yesterday.We are thinking about all who were caught up in the high winds & rains & hope everyone, kitty & human, are safe. The temps are so mild, mom opened up some windows before she left for work. Terry & I love having the windows open!

The vet left a message that Terry has elevated white cells and elevated protein values from her mouth infection. She goes back tomorrow evening for another shot of canvenia anti-biotic. If the infection isn't gone in two weeks, she will be given oral liquid prednisone for a couple of weeks. I'd appreciate if you'd vote for her Halloween avatar in the contest.

Gone back to napping. have a great day! pawhugs & a vote, Shadow

King Shadow's May Sojourn-another beautiful
sunny New England. Going to get hot through Wednesday this week.

Catnip Trivia-Catnip is a member of the mint family.
It has medicinal uses. Only 2/3 cats go crazy over catnip and it's an inherited trait. It's used to trap mountain lions. A chemical in catnip, hepatalactone, may be more effective against misquitoes than DEET.

VOTE COTD Wed MAY 5 for TJ #164269
Not all barn cats want to be barn cats. Some are happy campers enjoying the mouse hunt, the freedom to roam, and the companionship of other animals. Then winter comes..and guess what? They discover that heat and food can be had for those who ask. TJ lives in Michigan and was given the opportunity to get out of the cold and be part of a family. To earn his keep, TJ has learned how to fetch and shake paws. A young orange cat, TJ is pretty active doing all those cat things like jumping, climbing, poking around, and even warming a lap or too. So let's all visit TJ at #164269 on Wednesday, enjoy the warm weather in MI while we can, and help TJ get a shiny badge. He'll be bouncing off the walls with happiness.
Then visit our newest candidate for COTM, Sammi Sue-master avatarist..#79671 and leave a vote. FOR the CMR, Princess Lee & Casey....Varoom!

Hi Angels Sherman and Shelby
We will put your name on the COTM
list, but as you are aware, there are
only 12 COTM badges awarded per year
and as of today, there are more than
33,000 cats on the CC. The Catpaign &
Mews Room page candidate for COTM is
always a kitty who has been active in
community service in addition to a lot
of blogging to a lot of kitties. We
look for candidates who have been on CC for many months. Our current nominee is Sammi Sue #79671. She has been on the CC for two years and
created the Natural Disasters Contact page. This helps keeps the CC community in touch when floods,
earthquakes, and the such occur.

The campaign for a COTM badge is extremely time intensive. The candidate needs to send out an enormous amount of blogs every day. As the past candidates can tell you, your life is on hold while you run for COTM, every spare minute is spent blogging!

COTM is not only about getting a certain number of votes to get a badge. It's connecting with dozens of kitty friends, both old and new. By concentrating on a COTM badge, you have missed the greatest prize of all on the CC. And that is the sharing of stories, providing comfort, seeking strength and information, and most of all, the forming of strong new friendships with people with whom you share a common bond, that of the love of cats. The COTM badge is an honor bestowed by CC members to someone who has made contributions to the community and demonstrated a love for everything CC is meant to be. Hope this helps, hugs, purrs, and a vote for you, the Catpaign Crew

Hi Angels Shelby and Sherman!
Hope you had a great weekend. I am wishing you luck in running for COTM.. I don't know too much about being COTM but I think I know who does. I would suggest going over to the Catpaign and Mews Room and leave a blog about your wishes to be COTM. They will give you a better idea about this and let you know how to schedule a Catpaign that does not conflict with another kitty that may have been planning for a long time for the same month you are running for. Again, the Catpaign and Mews Room is very very helpful and will give you a better idea on what to do.
I wish you lots of luck!
Sending you many affectionate purrs, Ricky

My final good mews story of the month

After Hurricane Katrina, in New Orleans, a woman was forced to leave the city. She’d lost her family, dogs, and pet rabbit. She thought she’d lost her cat Cupcake too. Six months after the hurricane, an animal rescue person working to reunite owners and pets found the woman in Atlanta GA. She acknowledged that her black cat Cupcake had brought her good luck.

Today the moon is full!

A Good mews story

In 1996, Seattle Washington, a one year old black cat, Sneakers, disappeared from her yard. The family, including Sneakers owner, Hilary, 4 years old, was devastated. The family did all the usual things to find Sneakers: posted flyers, went door to door, contacted local shelters. Sneakers was never found or returned. Eventually he was replaced with other cats.

In 2006, an administrator from the Sacramento CA animal shelter called Hilary. A cat had been turned into the shelter because the family couldn’t care for the cat anymore. The cat was scanned for a chip, and a phone call resulted. After 10 years, Sneakers 10 years old and Hilary, now 14, were reunited.

I can't believe that this is the final week of my catpaign! This is the last poem of the month and it was found on www.buzzle.com

A cat as black
As blackest coal,
Is out upon,
His midnight stroll,
His steps are soft,
His walk is slow,
His eyes are gold,
They flash and glow.
And so I run,
And so I duck,
I do not need,
His black-cat luck.
~Author Unknown

“The poet has so rightly described the beauty of a black cat, yet has been overpowered by his sense of superstition and fear of black cats. Black cats are just like other colored cats, yet black is mostly associated with dark and evil and therefore, black cats are considered unlucky. Black cats have always been portrayed as the omen of evil, the pets of witches and wizards, or as a 'fier, dame classe supérieure' in movies, cartoons and fictional writings”. from www.buzzle.com

Of course, the poet is wrong, because we Black Cats bring good luck! MOL!!! Shadow

Have you every wondered what to name your black cat? If you are looking to name a cat other than Blackie or Shadow (not that there’s anything wrong with Blackie or Shadow, I like Shadow myself MOL!) www.buzzle.com lists many alternative names, and some of them are pretty good.

4/25 Shadow presents“Le Chat Noir” The Black Cat
An overcast day with temperatures in the 50s, light rain expected.

This is the last in the series on cats that are all black. It is the Havana Black Oriental Self Color that is featured here.

Prior to World War II, there was thought to have been a Siamese-type cat with a solid black coat. The cat today is not the same. In the 1960s, dedicated breeders, in the United Kingdom, began a program to produce a plain-coated cat of Siamese type without a restricted coat pattern. The Havana Black is the result of this breeding program. The breed is recognized in all countries.

This cat does not like to be left alone and should have the company of another cat. It is intelligent, affectionate, athletic and outgoing. In fact, it has a very high activity level. It is also very talkative. Its body is long and slim and of medium size. The Havana Black has a long whip like tail and long legs. Its head is triangular wedge shape, with a straight profile and large wide-set ears.

The coat is short, sleek and close lying, with little grooming required. The color is jet black to the root with no shading or markings. Its eyes are Oriental in shape and slanting toward the nose and the eye color should be a clear green.

More Black Cat Tales, Trivia & Superstitions

In some countries, sailor’s wives kept black cats in their homes to ensure the safe return of their husbands.

Sailors thought having a black cat on board the ship was good luck. But, it was forbidden to say the word “cat” during the voyage, or the trip would be sabatoged. This is because they thought the cat was a disguised witch.

In France, there is a legend about a black cat named “Matagot.” If Matagot comes to your door, take him in and care for him. It is thought this will bring the family wealth.

An ancient Japanese legend tells of a vampire cat that kills beautiful maidens by sucking their blood. The cat assumes the identity of the maiden and preys on her lover.

To reverse the bad luck curse of a black cat crossing your path, first walk in a circle, then go backward across the spot where it happened and count to 13.

Black Cat Stories with happy endings.

Molly the Mouser
In April 1, 2006 a black kitty, Molly the Mouser, 11 months old lived at a deli in Manhattan. The cat became lost inside the walls of the building. The fire and police were called to help, followed by the Animal Care and Control Department. The poor kitty was lost between the walls for 14 days. All types of devices were used to try to find Molly, including drills, miniature cameras, and raw fish to try to coax Molly out.

Finally, two weeks later, on April 14, the rescuers found her wedged between bricks and sheet metal and pulled her out to cheers from onlookers. Molly was fed a wonderful meal and recuperated nicely, returning to her mousing duties.

EARTH DAY

In tribute to our wild black leopard cousins here is A.A. Milne’s poem “Pinkle Purr.”

Tattoo was the mother of Pinkle Purr,
A little black nothing of feet and fur;
And by and by, when his eyes came through,
He saw his mother, the big Tattoo.
And all that he learned he learned from her,
“I’ll ask my mother,” says Pinkle Purr

Tattoo was the mother of Pinkle Purr,
A ridiculous kitten with silky fur.
And little black Pinkle grew and grew
Till he got as big as the big Tattoo.
And all he did he did with her.
“Two friends together,” says Pinkle Purr.

Tattoo was the mother of Pinkle Purr,
An adventurous cat in a coat of fur.
And whenever he thought of a thing to do,
He didn’t much bother about Tattoo.
For he knows it’s nothing to do with her,
So “see you later,” says Pinkle Purr.

Tattoo was the mother of Pinkle Purr,
An enormous leopard with coal-black fur.
A little brown kitten that’s nearly new
Is now playing games with its big Tattoo
And Pink looks lazily down at her:
“Dear little Tat,” says Pinkle Purr.

Happy Office Professionals’ Day to our Mom & Dad bloggers!!

Big Black Cats are an Endangered Species, a story found on the Internet National Geographic. Sad story,but true.

The jaguar is more commonly known to be a large yellow and spotted cat. In some traditions the Jaguar God of the Night was the formidable lord of the underworld. The name jaguar is derived from the Native American word yaguar, which means "he who kills with one leap." But, jaguars also come in a sleek black color of black with black spots. The jaguar once populated North and South America, but is now found mostly near the Amazon Jungle. There is one at the San Diego Zoo named Oscar who is a Brazilian jaguar. In the zoo near Budapest Hungary, there is also a black jaguar. Jaguars are fast animals, and the symbol of the sports car since 1935. It exemplifies sleekness and grace.

The black panther aka cougar(Puma concolor)is an endangered species on the continent of Africa. The panther is a large, long-tailed predatory cat with big paws for its size.Its population grows smaller along with its habitat. Environmental contamination from chemicals like mercury is also endangering these beautiful animals.The black panther is also found in South America and Western United States.
Unfortunately, both cats are being killed by hunters for the big cats beautiful and precious fur and by farmers to protect livestock.

Shadow presents“Le Chat Noir” the Black Cat
This is a short poem by Zbigniew Herbert, translated by John and Bogdana Carpenter. It is found in the book “The Great Cat” poems about cats. It is simply titled “Cat”

“He is all black, but has an electric tail. When he sleeps in the sun he is the blackest thing one can imagine. Even in his sleep he catches frightened mice. One can see this in the little claws that are growing from his paws. He is terribly nice and naughty. He picks birds off the trees before they are ripe.”

Not all poems end happily if you're a bird or a mouse.

Now for a joke:
Is it bad luck if a black cat follows you?
That depends on whether you’re a man or a mouse.

Marathon Day and Bunker Hill Day in Boston MA, and Patriots Day in Eastern MA (and a day off from work for Mom, yeah!

Yesterday we read about the Bombay and Asian Self.Today a true story about a Bombay cat.

Did you know that a Bombay cat from Brookfield CT was named after Colin Powell, the former Secretary of State? Colin Powell, the cat, was CFA’s 2003-2004 Cat of the Year. He had been judged 290 times and beat out 22,700 other cats for the honor. Colin Powell, former Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (highest military position in Department of Defense) met Colin Powell the CFA cat of the year in Mid-August 2004.

The cat was born on the first anniversary of September 11. Mr. Powell had the honor of naming one of Colin the cat’s sons. The owners of Colin Powell, the Bombay, had a tradition of naming their cats after prominent African-Americans. Mr. Powell chose to name the kitten Ralph Bunche, the first African-American to receive a Nobel Peace Prize.

Im finally back again my friends...
but please forgive me for being so late getting around to my blogs. seems like I am having a difficult time getting here to say HELLO any more and I am very sorry. But with warmer weather now here, and Mommie out and about more, and she and Poppie remodeling and getting the house to better standings it has really been a slow go getting on the computer. Mommie celebrated her 48th birthday back on March 29th and both she and Poppie celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary on April 6th. I sure do hope all of you had a very nice Easter too. I helped Mommie dye a few eggs and even helped eat one or two is about all. I have been doing nothing but sitting in the bay window watching the flowers bloom and birds flutter which I enjoy very well. Well, not much to talk about right now but just wanting to stop by and FINALLY say HELLO to all of my beloved friends.

The sun and the clouds can't make up their mind today; temps are in the 40s-50s! Thanks to all who sent get well wishes to our Mom. She’s beginning to feel better from the cold she’s had for a week.

On Sundays Black Cat breeds are highlighted. Today it is the Bombay (and Asian Self)

The Bombay is the best know breed of the Asian Selfs. Bombays have been produced in Britain and the USA. In Britain it is a cross between the Burmilla/Asian. In the USA it was the result of mating a Burmese with a domestic shorthair. As a result, the two Bombay breeds vary slightly in looks. The Bombay is known as the “patent leather kid with the copper penny eyes.” Its eyes are very bright. The eyes are large and colored copper in the USA, and also gold, yellow, chartreuse, green are acceptable in Britain.

The body is a medium-sized well-muscled body with a wedge-shaped head and a rounded dome. The ears are medium size and wide set. The front legs are slightly shorter than the rear legs. The tail is proportioned to the body and tapers to the tip.

Its jet-black coat has a famous sheen and texture. The coat is close lying, shiny and sleek. The Bombay must have solid deep black jet color to the roots. Coloring should be even, although some tabby markings are acceptable. Little grooming is needed.

The Bombay is outgoing, athletic, affectionate and intelligent. It is also very talkative.

Mom has had a very bad cold/flu or allergy this week. A trip to the doctor Wednesday wasn’t much help, so she continues to take her OTC meds and hopefully it will all go away very soon. That is why, except for the CMR page and visiting & voting for COTD, yesterday we weren’t able to do the COTM blog. This morning, we’ve propped mom in her computer chair & put a soft pillow behind her back, so that she’ll be able to help me with my daily COTM blogs. Today is a presentation of Furiday and Caturday. Thank you for your understanding. Pawhugs, Shadow

Ted’s Adventure
A black cat, Ted, from California jumped out of his owner’s car through a window in 1994 and disappeared. Ten years later, the humane society near San Francisco found Ted. Owner and cat were reunited because Ted was wearing a microchip. The owner said the it was like old times, with Ted rubbing against his owner and seemed happy to be home. Now they take rides in the car with the window rolled up.

More Trivia (from“For the Love of Cats”):
Winston Churchill was a well know cat lover. He took his black cat, Nelson, with him when he became prime minister of Great Britain in 1940. A chair was held for Nelson next to Churchill in the Cabinet.

A common belief around the world is that every black cat has a least one single white hair. If you can find it and pull the hair out without getting scratched, a happy marriage will be yours. (Don’t try this on me-I’m sharpening my claws MOL!).

Black cats are welcomed in the theater. This is because many actors have reported “black cat experiences.” It has been reported that seeing a black cat before taking the stage will deliver a show-stopping performance. The black cat is considered such good luck that some actors bring their own backstage with them. Nicholas Cage has a Bombay.

A sunny day with temperatures in the 60s with a slight breeze.

Today is poetry day. This poem entitled “Five Eyes” is by Walter De La Mare

“In Hans’ old mill his three black cats
Watch his bins for thieving rats.
Whisker and claw, they crouch in the night,
Their five eyes smouldering green and bright:
Squeaks from the flour sacks, squeaks from where
The cold wind stirs on the empty stair,
Squeaking and scampering, everywhere.
Then down they pounce, now in, now out,
At whisking tail, and sniffing snout;
While lean old Hans he snores away
Till peep of light at break of day;
Then up he climbs to his creaking mill,
Out come his cats all grey with meal-Jekkel, and
Jessup, and one-eyed Jill.”

Another moment from history; Oscar the Cat- A true story from World War II

During World War II, the German battleship Bismarck had a black cat, Oscar, as its mascot. The Bismarck sank May 27, 1941 when the British destroyer Cossack hit it with a torpedo. The members of the Cossack searched for survivors and found Oscar floating on debris.

The British seamen took Oscar in and renamed him Unsinkable Sam and adopted him. About 5 months later, the Cossack was sunk by a German U-Boat.

The British Aircraft carrier Ark Royal came after to search for survivors. Oscar was again floating on debris. The seamen again rescued Oscar and adopted him. Three weeks later, a German submarine torpedoed the Ark Royal near Gibraltar and sunk the ship. Oscar again was in the water.

The British Navy became superstitious. Oscar was sent to live in a retirement home for sailors in Belfast, Ireland.Oscar lived at the home until 1955 when he passed to the Rainbow Bridge.

Another sunny chilly day,into the 50s.

Today, a poem by Mary Oliver entitled “Morning”

“Salt shining behind its glass cylinder.
Milk in a blue bowl. The yellow linoleum.
The cat stretching her black body from the pillow.
The way she makes her curvaceous response to the small, kind gesture.
Then laps the bowl clean
Then wants to go out into the world where she leaps lightly and for no apparent reason across the lawn,
then sits, perfectly still, in the grass.
I watch her a little while, thinking:
What more could I do with wild words?
I stand in the cold kitchen bowing down to her.
I stand in the cold kitchen, everything wonderful around me.”

Today another breed with black color recognized by the CFA is highlighted.

The British Black is a shorthair self color breed.
It is said that the invading Romans introduced this cat to Britain. It is usually thought to be a “native” British cat. This group has many other colors, but the Black is a popular variety.

The British Black has a sweet-natured, gentle and generally undemanding temperament. The body is broad chested, stocky and solidly built. The ears are small, neat and wide set. Its coat is glossy, short and dense. The color should be all black to the root, with no rusty tinge. The eyes are large, round and wide set, with the color being either deep orange or copper.

The breed requires regular grooming. It is a quiet cat that requires moderate exercise. It is recognized in all countries.

Black cats have always been thought to bring good luck or bad luck. Here are some superstitions from around the world. These are from “For the Love of Cats”:

1) People in Britain and Japan believe a black cat crossing their path is a harbinger of good fortune.
2) Scottish folks think a black kitten on the porch indicates happiness is to come.
3) Latvian Farmers think finding a black cat in the silo means that Rungis, the god of harvests has smiled upon them.
4) Germans have to pay attention to which way the cat is crossing. A black cat crossing from left to right is a cause for celebration. However, if the black cat is crossing from right to left look out, bad luck may befall you.
5) If you cross at black cat’s path, bad luck of the worst sort will follow you.
6) Petting a black cat is a good thing. Stroking a black cat is said to bring you health and prosperity.
7) The Chinese believe black cats foretell times of famine and poverty.
8) If a black cat curls up on the bed of a sick person, according to Italians, death will soon follow.
9) Don’t be anxious to rid your house of black felines. Chasing away a black cat is thought to seal the deal on bringing bad luck your way.
