Hi A Gracie
Wow...were got to go outside today when mom got home from work. It is very hot out and we stayed in the shade. It is in the mid 80's with very high humidity. We WERE supposed to get some bad storms, but they moved over us, so we never got hit, all we got was thunder and it got dark out, but no rain.

Mom rode her bike today for the 1st time in 1 month. It was 1 month ago today that mom fell and hurt herself and spent 4 days at the Hospital and mom still has bumps and bruises on her head and her knee and she still can't hear from her left ear and it 'rings' all the time.

She rode up to the bank to cash her paycheck and deposit some of the money in her account and then stopped at Kroger for food. Mom said seeing as how she couldn't BBQ most of the Summer cause of being sick, she is taking every opportunity to BBQ now while the weather is still warm enough to do so...and of course she shared her steak with me and Jesse.

Mom is off tomorrow so we get to go outside earlier. But at 3:30 mom has to leave cause she has an appt for her MRI tomorrow and she hopes everything is cleared up now.

Mom watered her flowers tonight after we ate dinner and we all ran up the stairs and sat on the porch to watch and when she was through Jesse went down and drank from the puddle while Winston sat and watched the squirrel eat some crackers mom threw for him to enjoy!

I want to thank you for the condolences for my sweet Angel Snickie. I miss him very much, but we will always be together and he is coming back to play MHL for KCK!

Purrs & Pawhuggz!!

HIYA GRACIE!
sorry i couldn't make your full moon pawty this weekend but mom and dad were really busy. looks like you had a good time though at your pawty and the opening :)

btw,those are NOT my aquariums you have on your page,MOL! those are from the internet and look as if they are "virtual" aquariums. the only pic you have that is mine is of Big Ugly Guy. i do have one of my aquariums pic on my page.

well you told me what they found was going on with your eyes but not what they are going to do about it. are you getting glasses soon? do they think laser surgery will be necessary in the near future?

glad you got your frame for Nappers. did you take a pic of it all framed?

OMG! what a mess from your washer! why on earth did the plumber not drain the washer BEFORE STARTING IT!!! my mom said she would not have been very happy with that plumber at all making a SECOND mess for your mom to clean up!!! no wonder your mom's hands are sore from wringing all that stuff out :(

Thanks for all the nice comments you said about me at the opening Gracie. that was very sweet of you to do :)

well i see that mom has dragged out some Tiramisu ice cream so i'm going to try and stick my paw in there and get a little swipe before she can catch me,hahaha! hope your mom was able to relax some today and hope she gets her washer fixed soon!

headbonks and purrs,

Hi AQ Gracie
How was your weekend? We enjoyed a pawsome one! But now it is Monday again already and Mommy is back at work. Sissy and I miss her. Mr. UPS man delivered a package from PetSmart to our house today. Mommy ordered me some mew chicken & cheese hairball treats. I am very, very picky about my food & treats, plus I am allergic to wheat gluten. So we have to watch everything I eat. The jury is still out if I will eat these treats or not. We shall see! We also got some cute mew Halloween toys. More about those later.

Have a meow-velous Monday.
Purrs,
K Casper Todd

Hi Angel Gracie!
Thank you for coming by for my Adopty Day and for all the goodies. Mom remembers that special day like it was yesterday, she just went to "look" and never thought she would be coming home with a cat. In reality, I picked her and "told" her to take me home! We spent over 19 years together!

Mom thinks Mr Tough Guy Luigi has a soft spot for little Lollipop, but he is still trying to make sure she knows he is boss and "top cat". There is no hissing and they chase each other, mostly he chases her but sometimes she will chase him too. They both sit next to each other in their own cat beds, Mom got a very cute pink tent bed for Lollipop and Luigi has his leopard print bed. They each have their own food dishes and litter pans and so far they have not used each others that Mom can tell although she did see Lollipop checking out Luigi's cuisine.
Hugs,
Sabrina

hiya, Gracie!
More garbage out on the curb, includin' an old ratty office chair that was stuck way in the back under the shelves behind some cardboard barrels & I'll bet Dad didn't even know he had it! Anyway, it's out there & we didn't even have a whole lot of THIS week's garbage! It's cold and it's rainin' and Mom is cookin' up a coupla fish sticks from the fridge freezer. She'll save makin' the last pizza bread for a bit later.

She got out on the road to take a couple boxes to the thrift store and wouldja believe they are closed? She was also gonna look at the Usable Shop to see if they had any bed frames & to see if they might want the electric chair, but they are closed too. There are still crews cleanin' up branches outta the road in a few spots, it was quite a storm.

Nah, Big Bro Will don't use the electric chair. It IS kinda like a La-Z-Boy with the footrest that goes out, but it has a wire & buttons to press, and it lifts ya WAY up almost to where you're standin' up. Someone old should have it. It's been sittin' in the middle of the livin' room, in the way of everything, since Dad brought it home. Big Bro Will uses the couch, and Mom uses the La-Z-Boy, the one with a backrest that goes back because ya lean on it.

If your Mom's eyes are so different from one another that sure could be causin' her headaches and makin' her tired. It's normal for our eyes to be a LITTLE different, Mom's got one that's better for far away while the other is better for close up, but when one is WAY stronger than the other and tryin' to do all the work it can give ya big time headaches. I'll bet the new glasses will really make a difference.

Good luck with the washer/dryer dude today. If he ain't good to ya, I will come over and have a "talk" with him, okay? -- MJ

My final day as family blogger
I know I haven't been very meowy during my time but mom says that's normal for me. In fact she says my favorite thing to do every day is get underfoot in the narrowest areas of any walking space...or block the path entirely...MOL! Some of my other fursisters are more talkative than I am (Piggy is the worst) but none are better at getting in the way than I am.

It's another really hot day outside so mom closed the windows early so it would stay cool inside. All of the outside kitties are doing great, including JJ. He still tries to sneak inside almost every night but has learned to stay close to the dog's area whenever she's outside & Bartholomew is around. He's gained all of his weight back & his fur is beautiful again so as long as he stays out of trouble he'll be okay...especially since his 'jaunts' seem to be around our property only now.

Well I can't meow too long today because mom is doing laundry, & also has to make a short trip to the store to pick up a couple of birthday cards. One for grandpa (dad's dad) who's turning 88 tomorrow & one for furless sis who'll be turning 17 on Caturday.
Our infamous calico cyclone will take over the blogging in September but she may not be able to meow with you until Wednesday because mom has to go grocery shopping & pick up a mice cream cake for gp tomorrow. Not to worry though because I know she'll spin through as soon as she can...MOL!

Have a pawtastic day & I'll meow at you again when my turn comes around!

Loving hugs,

Hi A Q Gracie, & Family, It's Talley,
COTM DAY 31
I hope that the ideas and suggestions that I’ve presented during the month have proven helpful. I want to especially thank those of you who took the time to send me ideas that I could share with our friends.
This has been a remarkable month for me and my family.
You’ve sent me so many votes, so many kind words and wishes, so much love. When I was little more than a kitten, (it was back in the day of the shout out COTD catpaigns.) I was nominated for COTD, and as I sat with dad that evening he read me the notes that kitties had sent along with their votes. I kind of got a vision of what was happening and Pete asked me what I was thinking.
This is what I told him; “I just had a vision of what is happening tonight, Pete. Kitties and their families from all over the world are reading about me and sending me votes. What is a vote? Well, it’s easy to think that it’s just a click on a computer, but I think it’s much more. In my mind’s eye I see the world as though I’m looking at it from space. The whole world is a beautiful orb, with no lines marking off the different countries. I see the votes as little yellow scrolls tied with a bit golden ribbon. They seem to be floating up toward me from individual homes. As they rise they join others rising from neighborhoods and the streams of votes from neighborhoods combine to for large streams from cities, and then from states, they flow together to form rivers of sparkling yellow and gold. They make a river of love and caring. Each one is a message of friendship.
The big rivers combine and form rushing torrents of love and goodwill. As the world rotates beneath me I can see that the votes are rising from all over the globe and that powerful rush of love and good will circles the globe and then it all comes rushing down onto our house.
I feel so loved! CC is a very special place and a vote is so much more than just a click.”
All of these years later, I still think your votes are much more than clicks!
My life truly has been blessed. I was rescued by my dad when I was a tiny sick kitten, and I have been loved and nurtured every day of my life. My brother and sisters love me and treat me with kindness and respect. I’ve made many friends here on CC and I met the most wonderful cat in the whole world, my wonderful husband K Whiskers.
I hope with all of my heart that some of the ideas that I’ve presented, can help other kitties to find the kind of life that I have been blessed with. Thank you all so very much!
See you tomorrow evening for a Coronation Celebration.

HOLY
( by K MacVitie)
The peace and joy you give me, no words can ever tell,
The lessons that you teach me, in my heart will always dwell,
Your purrs bring forth divinity, to comfort, heal and bless,
Wondrous being, praise to you for your gracious loveliness.

Love,
Talley

aaawww sweet gracie
I love u and ur blogs. will answer u even when no one else.

yes momma puts up all the vegie soup that is et here. gma puts stuff up , but she freezes hers and then don't eat it and gets on a frizzy to clean out her freezer so she can put more stuff up she wont eat. u bet ur butt momma don't let her toss it out soooooo it winds up in our freezer. hhhheeeeeee

below is blog momma posted bout goliath

loves u very much
shaddy
hope we can lighten everyones's spirits for a moment with our good news about our doggie sib, goliath. his visit to the vet this past Saturday was his last. he is healing really good. still had one spot of dead skin on his back bout the size of a silver dollar. they didn't want to mess with it. sssoooooo tonight, momma was looking at it and saw how small a spot was still attached, so as she has a surgical scapel, momma heat and alcohol sterilized it and just with one small stroke, removed it. did not bleed at all.

then she took goliath outside to pee and poop, as he let her know he needed to do. when came back in momma and goliath actually played " i'll get ur tail, then foot" and he growls like his is gonna tear her hand off, and when he does make contact with his mouth he uuuhhh "fleas" her. anyway when they got thru doing that momma got a tube of hydrocortisone ointment, put it on her thumbs, and massaged it into the bare healed skin and goliath literally laid there and grunted in pleasure. needless he is having the most restful nite we have seen him have in the past four weeks.

is good there will be no more vet bils as momma still has an 800.00 outstanding bill yet to pay

but hhhooorrraaaahhhhhh our goliath is on the recovery road and feels good enough to play with momma a bit

purrs and love

Hi Gracie
Oh, that is just terrible when things like that happen! Hope the Maytag guy makes it over tomorrow.
Wow, we hope her new glasses come in quickly. Mom needs hers examined, it's been a couple of years.
She did go back to the fair by herself today for one last hurrah till next year. Mom doesn't get the fancy funnel cakes. Too expensive and generally it ends up being too much for her, so she sticks with Old Faithful. :) She stopped at the Pink Zebra booth and bought some wax sprinkles for her little tea light scent burner. She also has the Airwick state park collection plug in freshener in Fiji scent, which is coconut basically. So she's gonna have one yummy smelling room with the coconut and toasted marshmallow scents. :)
She found a fragrance burner at Dollar Tree yesterday.
We are having the opposite. Where you're cooling off, we're warming up with higher humidity.
That was some pawty last night. Mason and I had a wonderful time as always. You and Max were so cute together.
I've brought over some snow cones and Reese's Pieces funnel cakes.
Love,
Sakura

Hi A Gracie!
Your volunteer badge is pawsome; the logo is purrfect and the name is purrfect. Boy that Chris B didn't stick around long, did he? Mom didn't watch the show but read the summary. No one would be interested in him with all that drinking and not being friendly to anyone. He didn't have a chance with Tenley...probably not anyone else either.

I am here with Jakar and we brought a big bag of cheese puffs and some lemon lime sodas. I think we could use some of the cantalope moonpies tonight with them. Do you have any of the Betta fish left from the Full Moon pawty? I would love to play GO FISH with them.

Dad just got home; he is wicked tired and mom says dang it he has to make another trip down there. She was hoping that was the last one but guess not quite. So I'm not sure when they can start the privacy fence. Mom would like to get working on that very soon. She hates that people walking by can look right into her back yard, and she worries if the doggies get out, they could run on to a busy street.

Let's go shopping tomorrow for some pretty frocks to wear to the coronation Tuesday night. I would like something the color of your profile frame. Sappire blue. Do you know who the next candidate is? I saw something accidentally so I might have an idea. But I won't say if you don't know.

Have a super evening! Big hugs!!

Hiya Gracie!
Oh, that would be really great if the plumber wouldn't charge your Mom for comin' out! Good luck with that washer & dryer guy! YUCK! I'm glad our washer & dryer are downstairs where there's no floor but cement and the floor drain about 5 feet away.

Heck no, Mom wasn't gonna toss the electric chair! Dad's family paid 800 bucks for it when they got it for Angel Granddad, he only used it for about 6 months and Dad sat in it, but hardly ever used the electric part. Mom oughta be able to find someone who will get some use outta it.

She was busy again today, she sorted all those records & tossed the ones with busted jackets & scratches. She made sure the right record was IN the jacket. Then she went through a gazillion CD's that Big Bro Joe and Big Bro Will didn't want anymore. She put them in alphabetical order, made sure the right disc was in the case (or ANY disk, some cases were empty), then she used the empty cases to fix a few of the cases that had the fronts busted off. Now whether they go to the flea market or Krazy Bob, they're in a lot more respectable shape.

Now she's got a whole bunch more cords and old keyboards, etc., to go to the recycling place.

Mmm! Pass some more sturgeon shish kabob, what a great way to end the weekend! -- MJ

♥ We are sorry we didn't get to be on to visit our friends Saturday, but dad opened one of those Pandora Boxes when he went to change an "O" ring in the kitchen faucet. First he went to Home Depot to buy a new one, but they didn't have any so he went to Lowe's which they had one. Once he got it on and back together, it still leaked bad so mom and dad ended up going back to Lowe's and bought a new faucet. It was after 9:00pm last night when he finally got done.

♥ Last night mom heard a cat fight which mom had a feeling who it was and sure enough it was Mysteanah-Gre' and Sonnjae in a nasty fight!!!! Mysteanah is the one who usually starts it. Mom never got to see Sonnjae after that last night nor has she seen him yet today, but mom's hoping to see him later so mom can try to check him over. Mysteanah seemed to be okay!!!!

♥ Mom had to get dad up at 5:00am this morning as he went Salmon fishing with his nephew David toward the coast of Florence. Then a bit later mom went to Wal*Mart this morning to pick up a few things.

♥ Mom added two new pictures of our front yard down at the bottom of my page.

Whoa, ZIPPY!! Did we EVER luck out
at our place yesterday. The Weather Channel site says that a MILLION people in BC lost their power yesterday!! A whole MILLION!! Why, that's even more than Evie is years old ... she didn't hear that, did she?

Usually it's Aldergrove that goes down first, but we were fine. It sure rained last night, though. Mom woke up because it was raining so hard that it got to that point where the gutters couldn't keep up and the rain spilled right over. So Mom woke up to hear a stream of water and at first she thought it was Mikey in the litter box. He pees so hard you can hear it when things are quiet. But then it went on, and on, and on, and she was starting to get really worried about Mikey. Then Mikey jumped up on the bed, and she woke up enough to realize what it REALLY was. Goofy Mom!

Now this morning Mikey & I were watching birds out the window, they were HUGE big black ones, not your usual crows, I think these ones were Ravens. They were all over our front yard, eating stuff. I was chattering like crazy at them and flexing my paws, but they weren't worried. Mom took a picture but they didn't look as big in the picture as they were in real life.

Oh, no, now your DRYER is packing it in? Well, tomorrow is Monday so hopefully they'll be fixed then. Even if your Mom has to get new ones it would STILL be better than messing with the pipes in the yard!

So let's steer clear of all those hanging damp clothes and get the Butlers out of her hair too. It's still pawty time here on Pinto Island and I am in the mood for some Sturgeon Pancakes! -- Moj

Sunday
the Budds stretch and roll over. the sun is out it must be time to get up. PD snaps his paws for a cabana boy. Are they serving early?
Warm croisants, butter, hot catmint tea... yum.
The mom called to see if we are okay (isn't that sweet?) and to find out when we are going to be home. Poor Ole Lady did not see the full moon last night just a bright overcast grey-white sky.
And overcast today and decently cool so we want to go out to play and garden this a.m. if we can get her off the computer.
I am going to post Episode 15.5 later today when the rain starts (3 p.m.-- the weather idiots can tell that accurately?).
Then mom is making banana bread, purrhaps applesauce because the nice neighbors gave her a big bucket of their apples that fell of the tree when they were pruning the branches. And if she has any sense and can still stand up she will start a batch of bread in the bread machine. Now how hard is that, really?
So, we will have to leave Pinto by ... say... lunchtime. What's for lunch over here anyway?
Purrs,
PD Budd

Hi Gracie
I made it back, even though it was Mom that was gone last night. GM's appointment went great and the football game was fantastic. Two shutout games where we won both!
We have been here for awhile. Mason and I are dancing and Mali and Ana, along with the others, are milling about visiting.
The moon is so bright and beautiful! Mom can't tell, it's too cloudy and chilly damp. Got a warm up moving in. Mom isn't happy about that.
Yeah, it seems like any extras you want cost extra. The maple bacon funnel cake is $8! Good thing we have connections (kitties) and can get them whenever we want. ;)
Well, I'd better get for now. More meowing tomorrow. :)
Love,
Sakura
Great that your mom has finally got a great fit with her teeth!

Hey Gracie! I'm here!! Happy Moon Day!
Here's those Sturgeon Pizzas I promised ya!

Oh, Gracie, fixin' the washer or even gettin' a new one is a whole different UNIVERSE better from diggin' up the yard & messin' with the pipes. Why, it was even worth more moppin' up just to find that out!

Mom made that green bean casserole, just in time because those green beans were not gettin' any younger. She made pizza bread too, we're over halfway done with the last loaf of Italian bread that wouldn't fit in the freezer. Oh, we are doin' GOOD, Gracie!

Mom got all the things involvin' electricity done early because the wind was whistlin' and howlin'! Then she did somethin' on her to-do list, she patched up the Electric Chair! See, it used to be Angel Granddad's and Dad brought it home after Angel Granddad passed. But Angel Granddad had a kitty and I (blush) kinda took exception to that. So I scratched the back corner of that chair & then I started on the foot rest. So Mom was lookin' for a way to patch it and lo & behold, not too long ago she found an armrest cover for the chair hidin' in the side pocket. Today she patched up those two pieces of what she calls "kitty love". Mike, Evie & Mojo never scratched the thing, the little showoffs. So now if she wants to sell it she has a way better chance of it.

Now did I hear Sturgeon Rollups? I don't think we're gonna have a hope in 7734 of seein' that moon up at OUR place so I'm glad it's always clear on Pinto Island.

Now I think we have time to get some Limbo started up before it gets too dark to see the pole! -- MJ

Hi pretty Gracie Gurl!
NOPE the sand just looks pink in the photo; it's not really. It's a light beige. It's pool filter sand, it's really fine. Has no nutrients for real plants but the plastic ones like it just fine. The Swordtails seem very happy in the 29er. Mom wasn't sure they would like it but the two boys were starting to fight in the 110. So mom moved one boy with his little harem in the bedroom. She likes watching them before she goes to bed.

The decorations look lovely and I see the little fishie twinkly lights and the Betta fish in their bowls on each table. Goodie, we can play GO FISH later. Tee hee.

I have Jakar with me, he is over talking to Max and now he's coming to kiss your paw and is telling you how stunning you look tonight. Max is grinning and looks like he's anxious to get you out to the dance floor. I just happened to wear my dancing shoes so hope Jakar is in the mood to kick up his paws tonight. I have a rose silk sarong with a dancin' slit and a pink and white hibiscus behind my ear. LOVE the tunes you picked out and the place looks quite cozy tonight.

Having a wonderful time! Big hugs!!

Hi A Q Gracie, & Family, It's Talley,
COTM DAY 29
Today we take a break in the catpaign, to make an announcement,
Queens Maggie and Angel Ginger have agreed that the Coronation shall take place on Tuesday September 1st beginning at 7:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time. The ceremony will take place on the Cat’s Meow Resort, (271826). Following the ceremony there will be a reception for all kitties. There will be a delicious menu, Music and Dancing until the wee hours (or until everyone is tired and goes to sleep)
I have to say, It has been an honor and a pleasure to Catpaign this month, and I am so overwhelmed with your support and kindness. I will try to be a good Queen and serve you well.
And now a poem:

Cat-Proofing
Like God keeps His eye upon the sparrow,
I keep my eye upon the cat,
For unlike the little sparrow,
I’m not sure just where she’s at.
She knows the couch is out of bounds,
Yet invariably she goes there,
She ignores the yellow warning tape,
I’ve wound around it, in despair.
I know she likes electric cords,
She pulls them from the wall,
I’ve told her fifty million times,
THAT’S NOT ALLOWED AT ALL!
The wires are rewired now,
To shriek like fire sirens,
If she so much as puts a paw
Anywhere near their environs.
She treats the kitchen counter,
As a fun place on which to glide,
Though it’s purposely lubricated
To make her slip and slide.
When I booby-trapped the cupboards,
I thought, “A-ha! I’ve stopped her now!”
But fearlessly she enters,
And does not blow up, somehow.
Some cat owners keep baskets
Of balls of yarn upon the floor,
My basket’s filled with hand grenades,
Which she bats around ’til she gets bored.
Alternate pencils on my desktop,
On impact will explode,
She always kicks the safe ones off,
How ever does she know?
There’s nothing wrong with cat food,
It’s made special, just for cats,
But she wants steak and baked potato,
GET DOWN! GET OFF MY TABLEMAT!
Just once I’d like to wear a dress,
Not accessorized with cat hair,
But plastic bags do not protect,
How does she get inside there?
I firmly speak; my voice is loud,
Sometimes I fairly SHOUT!
But, somehow her cat meows,
Are loud enough to drown me out.
I tell her time and time again,
CUT OUT THAT LOOKING CUTE!
It would help so much when I yell at her,
If she looked more like a brute.
Her attention span is not too long,
Just long enough to drive me wild,
I’m convinced she had some lessons,
From a clever, spoiled child.
I doubt God’s little sparrows,
Give Him trouble quite like mine,
But He can’t hold them in His lap,
Or hug them any time.
Oh, I suppose it is a tradeoff,
And I do get some relief,
Like when she’s curled up on the couch
Behind the yellow tape, asleep.
I think to master cat control,
Is a fine, accomplished art,
I’ve learned I can cat-proof my house,
But I can’t cat-proof my heart.
I love you all,
Talley

Okay!
We are here with out beach blankets and a bucket of fried chicken... we love warm full moon nights.
When should we set up? Did you reserve our usual little hut by the water?
Can you send one of those cute boys over with a tray of glasses and ice.
What are we drinking? Not Sturgeon?

Hi Angels Gracie & Paw Paw
Seeing as Summer is coming to a close, how would you like one last chance to go sailing? AJ thought it would be fun to sail to the Island of Catsville, stay for a few nights in the Cat Hotel, go swimming and camping, etc.

Feel free to bring any friends along who would like to come and be sure to bring plenty of towels and your bathing suit {or not}..AJ is bringing his pool tire and I am bringing my raft...you can also bring any food or beverages you want we can take along on the camping trip!

The weather is supposed to be fantastic this coming week. Soon enough we will be seeing the colors changing and the air getting cooler as Autumn sets in!

Hope you can join us!

Hey Zippy! Guess what!
It's RAINING! It's Pouring! And Mikey is snoring (giggle). I was watching a squirrel out the window this morning, and the grass is starting to turn green again. Doesn't take much!

Last night Mom put a new blanket on the big bed. It's thicker than the empty duvet cover she had on there all summer, and I liked it! Instead of sleeping down by her feet, I slept right up beside her on the part of the blanket that was folded over. Mikey looked pretty comfortable too. Now we have the windows open and the fresh air coming in.

Hey, Mom is proud of herself all over again. See, for a long time when she turns the washer on "warm" we'd hear a sound like the washer makes when it's swooshing the clothes around. Except the noise would come from the water heater, while the washer was still filling up. Set the washer on "cold", everything was fine. On "hot" everything was fine, too. When the Township came & flushed the water mains in the spring, it stopped for a couple of days. So that's what gave Mom the bright idea to flush out the water heater but after she did, the noise still happened. Anyway, she put a load of laundry in today and set it to "warm" and NO noise! Maybe it had something to do with the drippy bathtub. Anyway, paws are crossed that the noise stays away.

Eww, I'm glad your Mom hasn't had Pine-sol for a long time, I remember ... or rather Mike & Evie remember ... learning in Cat College that Pine-sol can make kitties really sick if they get any on their paws & lick it off. I just double checked to make sure they remembered right, they ARE getting kind of old, you know. But they did remember right, and it sand the same with Lysol or pretty much anything ending in -sol or with any ingredients with "phenol" as part of the name. So ewww on that lady who bathed in it!

Nope, guess just because stuff is old doesn't mean it's collectors items. Mom is going to go through the records again to keep out some that she wants, she was going to sacrifice those ones if they'd been worth anything to collectors but since they're not she'll keep a few of them. Then there are ALL the CD's that Big Bro Joe left behind, something like 3 boxes of them. she'll put them in alphabetical order so if she goes to the flea market or puts them on eBay they'll be easier to look through to find a certain one.

Now let's get ready for that big grand opening of the Sanctuary! It's almost time! -- Moj

Hi A Gracie!
Jakar and I are here playing poker and we brought some nachos with guacamole and pitchers of frozen kittiritas. Are we winning? Sure hope so. I could use a mew diamond bracelet.

Not to worry, I brought my pink and green pjs and am staying over and planning to tuck you in tonight. I don't want your mom overdoing it after all those eye machines and the puff. Let her rest and we sure do hope the kitchen and laundry room floors dry out, that sounds like it was pretty awful for mom to have that happen tonight.

Oh Bummer to hear BIP will be over Sept 8 or 9, that's none too far away. Only this week and next for us, is that right? Hope some of the contestants can end on a happy note as they go back to their regular lives.

Yeah, mom loves to putter in the fishie tanks and water garden. She doesn't dig in the water garden but plants things along the edges. She planted some Water Wisteria the other day and some four leaf water shamrocks. She had never seen those before. In the big fishie tank, we have real plants but not in the 29g; those plants are plastic, but the fishies don't seem to mind.

Have a good evening! Hope no more crappy stuff happens to mom! Big hugs!

Hi A Q Gracie, & Family, It's Talley,
COTM DAY 28
We have a short blog and a long poem today.
I wanted to mention another way to help shelters. It’s something that dad has been doing for quite a while, and we almost forgot to mention it to you. It’s easy, doesn’t cost anything and provides funding for almost any charity that you can think of.
Most of us order things from Amazon, and they have a program called Amazon Smile. You sign up, and then whenever you make a purchase a, small donation is made to the charity you selected.
The small amounts add up, our local “No More Homeless Pets’ told us that they receive almost two hundred dollars a month.
Just a thought, and now our poem....
WHY OWN A CAT
There's a danger you know.
You can't own just one, for the craving will grow.
There's no doubt they're addictive, wherein lies the danger
While living with lots, you'll grow poorer and stranger
One cat is not trouble, and two are so funny,
The third one is easy, the fourth one's a honey
The fifth is delightful, the sixth ones's a breeze.
You find you can live with a houseful, with ease.
So how 'bout another? Would you really dare?
They're really quite easy, but Oh Lord, the hair!
With cats on the sofa and cats on the bed,
And crates in the kitchen, its no bother, you said.
They're really no trouble, their manners are great.
What's just one more cat and one more little crate?
The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty.
The floor is all footprints, the furniture's dusty.
The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care?
Who minds a few noseprints and a little more hair?
So let's keep a kitten, you can always find room.
And a little more time for the dust cloth and broom.
There's hardly a limit to the cats you can add
the thought of a cutback, sure makes you feel sad.
Each one is special, so useful, so funny,
The food bill grows larger, you owe the vet money.
Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay,
Except other cat folks, who live the same way.
Your lawn has now died and your shrubs are dead, too.
Your weekends are busy, you're off with your crew.
There's cat food and vitamins, grooming and shots
And entries and travel and motels, which cost lots.
Is it worth it you wonder? Are you caught in a trap?
Then that favorite comes up and climbs in your lap.
His look says you're special and you know that you will
Keep all of the kittens in spite of the bill.

Late evening is awful, you scream and you shout
At the cats on the sofa, who refuse to get up.
The cats and the cat shows, the travel, the thrills
The work and the worry, the pressure, the bills.
The Whole thing seems worth it, the cats are your life.
They're charming and funny and offset the strife.
Your lifestyle has changed, things just won't be the same.
Yes, those cats are addictive and so's the cat game!

Hiya Gracie
Well, the comic books were mostly ones that Big Bro Joe left behind, so they were mostly Marvel ones. Mom used to mostly have DC's, some of the Harveys & Gold Keys, Archie of course.

Well, we hear that Angel D'bo's Mom isn't quite as healthy as ours, so we really need to keep that Angel dust comin' for her.

Gracie! Your Mom's teeth actually FIT!! Mom has new chompers happy dance! Maybe she's not havin' such a great day today, but that's one hurdle done at least. Sturgeon pizza, here we come!!

♥ Listen up!!!! You remember that orange Tabby Tomcat that's been hanging around in our back yard???? Well, he's still here and has gained a little weight so he's not so gauntly looking. But guess what???? He finally let mom pet him about a week ago and still lets mom pet him some!!!! Mom was thrilled to achieve that. Mom also gave him a name and is getting him used to hearing it. Mom thought of a few names to fit him and has decided to call him ..... Sonnjae (pronounced Son Jay).
Mom also took lots of pictures of him and added seven (7) into my gallery.

♥ Mom called (Jazpyr's #10428 littermate sister) TOEBEE'S Momma Judy on Thursday afternoon to see how TOEBEE is. She is doing ok and continues to eat and drink water. Momma Judy did find another lump which makes two now.

♥ SAUSHA #22506 has calmed down enough as not to be so scared when mom goes in their room. She comes to mom again as she had in the past before her sickness. She loves the laser light and chases it all around in their room. Dad and mom are impressed by her fastness at it and so cute!!!!

♥ I am feeling lots better, too, and taking my Simplicef antibiotics for mom with no issues. Mom says I'm usually a good boy when taking my meds.

♥ UPDATE ON WHYSKRS #10378
Whyskrs continues to be on his diet even thru all of us that has been sick. Mom has not stopped him on that.
Since April 2, 2015 at his official weight of 25.2 lbs. he now weighed in at 22.3 lbs. on August 17, 2015.

Oh gee, Furry Godmom!
YOU have had a day and a half and it's barely half over! Come on & join the pawty, sit down & relax. Sounds like your Mom just might have had a pipe plug up or even collapse if they're that old. We had a pipe plug up once & back up into the basement when the washer emptied. The sewer was involved, how stinky! But at least it was the basement! Hope using the sinks or toilet doesn't add to it or it could be a LONG time if you have to wait till Monday. Do I dare say it's a silver lining if your Mom can't see it 100% clearly, mol? By the time she gets those new glasses, it will be ALL cleaned up!

Thanks for helping me celebrate my Adoptiversary and for that great serenade. It's true, we really are all family and CC is a great example of that.

I can't believe it was eight years ago today I found my forever family and spent that very first night snuggled up with Mom & Dad. That day also made it possible to find this awesome CC family and my forever love Lady Dolly too. What a lucky tom I am!

I'm going to enjoy snuggling with Dolly under the orange blankie you brought, the days are definitely starting to get colder as of today. Molly Rose is trying to hit the Garfield pinata and ... oh, I think she got it <WHAP!> Scramble!

Let's start cutting the 1000 layer orange roughy creme Moonpie cake. Love the salmon forming an 8! You are so creative, Furry Godmom!

Hi Purrty Girl..
You didn't think I was going to miss another full moon pawty did ya??? NO WAY, I put my paw down and refused to budge till she brought us all over!! :) Gee, we read your mom was having problems again, I hope she is doing a little better today, you best give her some hugs & kitty kisses from me, you know how much she likes those!!MOL!!!
Ih Gracie you should see how much fun Dot & I have been having in the backyard, we chase each other all over the place and I have "treed" her several times, although my rear-end doesn't want to leave the ground, mom says I do a little bunny hop and give up after that, so I guess tree climbing is just not for me. :(
Mom cannot believe what is going on in BIP, every week she just shakes her head.
We love all the aquariums that you installed sweetie, you did a great job!!!
Mom and Dad are finally going to have a little vacation at the end of September, mom is thrilled to have two weeks off, course that means our mews will go into the trash, unless she can get her mew Kindle figured...OK I really hope you are not holding your breath!!!MOL!!!
I brought us some Irish coffee's and giant cream filled mint iced Doughnuts, wanna paddle out with me, of course I am heading for that sunrise!!!

Hi Gracie
They went to the fair last night. Tonight the niece went with one of her friends and they do go on the rides.
Mom had her cheesy fries (Bacon was extra so she passed on it) and funnel cake au natural, MOL. She saw that maple bacon ones were available so that's what we had. :)
I hope your mom is feeling better tonight and that the eye doctor can help her tomorrow.
The sanctuary is amazing! It was sure a labor of love from all of us.
I will be offline tomorrow since Mom will be gone till late. I will be there on Caturday, I wouldn't miss that, no siree!!!
See ya then!
Love,
Sakura

Hi A Gracie!
YEP we sure did have quite a pawty yesterday and we were rock and rollin' all night long. In fact, mom hasn't taken down my birthday pic. She thinks it can wait until tomorrow. That is so cool you are putting fish tanks in the kitty sanctuary; they are so peaceful and relaxing to watch. Mom loves hers and likes puttering around in them. It relaxes her and she likes nurturing living things.

I have some leftover 1000 layer cake, do you want some? It hasn't fallen over yet. Angel Elmie and Angel Pouncer did a super job making it.

I think I need to put my blogger to bed; her eyes are closing as she types. She can't wait to hit the hay. First she wants to read some spoiler for the BIP show. It won't be on much longer, will it? Summer is coming to an end so quickly.

Dad is still digging up the yard but told mom it will be done tomorrow. Then Saturday he's meeting brother at the rental house then he will go back to Indy with brother and stay over until Sunday. So it will be an all girls' weekend...well, and Jax.

Have a great evening! Big hugs!!

Hi Zippy!
I don't think Liquid Wrench is quite like airplane glue, but I do think you're supposed to use it in ventilated areas. It stinks! But it helped Mom get the diverter off ... actually the problem was with the dumb little sleeve that you have to take off to even GET to the diverter, the diverter itself actually came off way easily! And Mom used the shower this morning and everything was A-OK!

Yep, everyone who worked on the Sanctuary sure does rock & roll! What a great place, I can hardly wait for the big grand opening on Saturday!

Mom went to Krazy Bob's with the records & comic books and came back with the Dad's records & the comic books. Krazy Bob said he couldn't pay her very much for them and told her that she should try the flea market. FLEA market?! I don't want Mom to buy any FLEAS!!

It's supposed to get colder overnight and be raining by tomorrow, so Mom is going to go ride the putt putt and give it a good bit of exercise while it's still nice.

Hope your Mom's brain has stopped shrinking & she's doing okay today! -- Moj

Hi Angel Queen Gracie and family!
Another hot day for us here- in the mid 90’s today and tomorrow and then it will start to cool down. Mom took Callie and me for our stroller walk early this morning. We had the trail to ourselves, when we saw a small doggie coming towards us, just trotting along by himself. He wasn’t barking and his tail was wagging. Mom was relieved to see he had a collar. Mom always carries a leash, just in case, so she parked our stroller off the trail and went to see if the doggie was friendly enough to let her leash him. He was and while Mom was trying to read his tag, we suddenly heard people yelling for “Bella!” Yep! The doggie’s tag said Bella on it with a phone number. Mom never gets the gender right. MOL! Bella was a girl! Any way, the people yelling were on the other side of the trail. The three mile loop trail is the one we always use. So Mom had to run down a hill (with Bella) to get to the creek and yell as loud as she could - “Bella is over here!” The owners were two teenagers who had let Bella off her leash while they walked. They said Bella never goes far, but apparently she must have seen a squirrel or something interesting. They thanked Mom and put Bella back on her leash. Callie and I waited patiently in our stroller, praying that no one would come by and cat-nap us! Mom assured us we were always within her eyesight. We had to turn around and hurry back home because it was warming up and Mom still needed to take our neighbor Abarna out for a stroll. Whew! What a morning! This will be a great day for cat napping.:)

Wow! You and your furmily did a terrific job with the gorgeous aquarium for the Kitty Shelter. The pictures in your gallery are beautiful!

We hope your Mom and the kitties are doing well. Hopefully they're not getting the hot weather that we are. Give them all big hugs for us sweetie!

We left a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

“She hops expectantly into the sink. I turn on the tap for her; she laps without a glance in my direction, like a duchess so used to being ministered to that she no longer notices the servants and sees only a world where objects dumbly bend to her wishes, doors opening, faucets discharging cool water, delicious things appearing in her dish.” =^.^= - Peter Trachtenberg, On The Love of Cats and Persons

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

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

Love to you all,
Talley

Oh, Furry Godmom, did you SEE
the pictures that Mom Toni posted on Facebook today of my sweet Lady Dolly getting to know her new home? She was on the cat tree and curled up on the bed too. And the update on CMR today says that she was up on Mom Toni's pillow last night! I know that's where she liked to sleep at home in Washington and Arizona. I'm sure happy my Lady is doing so well & I hope that Mom Janada will rally a bit & feel well enough to see some of the pictures.

Wow, is there something going around? I've been making the stinkiest poops lately and (blush), I'm kind of neglecting to bury them sometimes. Mom thinks I'm making a statement to the outside critters that the house is MINE! I get hissy first thing in the morning and I insist on coming out of the bedroom before Mom & the Moj do, so I can check things out & make sure everything is the way it should be. A tom has to protect his family, after all!

No idea what kind of wood Dad's bedside table is, and you're right, he SHOULD have used coasters or something. But Mom could ever get him to listen. He was stubborn that way! Let's just say he took care of the things around him about as well as he took care of himself. But he loved us kitties and would you believe Mom is STILL on the big bag of kitty treats that he bought for us back in June? She doles them out way more sparingly than he did, darn it all. But we're still happy to get them, it's our bedtime routine! -- Mikey

Hiya, Gracie!
MOL, my Dad on an Angel Baseball team ... I do NOT think that crossin' to the other side has made him any more athletic. But if there is a curlin' team formin' up for the winter, I think he'd be all over that one.

Mom's gotta fly soon, she's got an appointment with Krazy Bob and the records & comic books are all set to go. She's also got boxes of DVD's and CD's, but not sure if Bob takes those. And next week she's gotta get up the guts to phone the guy Dad usedta get stamps from, there's some stamp collectin' supplies he might want, magnifyin' glasses, lights, little bitty envelopes & the like. And some stamp catalogues, most of 'em are probably so old they are just fit for the recycling bin, but if there are any he could pawsibly sell again (Dad got 'em from HIM) he might as well. Just the odds & ends, Mom is not touchin' the actual collection. Just tuckin' it away right now.

Yeah, we were sad to hear about Angel D'bo's Dad, though we gather from what we'd overhear at MHL that he's been kinda sick for a while & the ambulance has hadda come for him a few times. Still, we're sad for Mom Carole, we sure know how it is. Even if ya know it's probably comin' you are not quite prepared when it does.

Gee, Gracie, you sure YOUR Mom wasn't sniffin' Liquid Wrench yesterday? I don't know what it was you saw in my gallery, but I have no pizza there. Maybe Squeeve came along & ate it, mol. Speakin' of pizza, tomorrow is Mikey's adoptiversary and the next day is the Sturgeon Moon! How's about we cook up a bunch of Sturgeon Pizzas?

Gracie, your Mom is worryin' me and I am bringin' her some special eyedrops laced with Angel dust. I'm tellin' ya, she might hafta break down & go see the human vet after all! -- MJ
