About Me

Active within 5 Days

Hi! My name is A.Q. Cherish Luvs P. Thunder forever

I am Domestic Longhair from Vista, CA

Nicknames: I have served several Kings and Queens recently, and I was given the title Dame Cherish. Then the most wonderful thing happened ... I was chosen Queen for March 2012 and given a crown and a castle where all my dear furriends came to visit. Now I am back to being Mom's kitty, but living the high life on a Round-The-World cruise.

Age: 19 years old

Gender: F

Coat: long haired

Education: I was COTD on 10-8-2007, and again on 3-18-2011. I also received CROTD on 3-18-2011. I then served CC as Queen for March 2012; during that period, on March 19, 2012, I also was voted COTD & CROTD. Wow, were we surprised! Then I received yet another COTD award the day following my 17th birthday! What a way to celebrate. As for special abilities, I have developed my own little 'words' for my treats and will ask for them by name. Mom is smart; she always knows what I am saying.

My favorite tricks and treats are: Tricks? Am I a dog? I usually come when I am called (okay, dog thing), but I do NOT do tricks. I look pretty; isn't that enough? and My Mommy gives me a small piece of very crisp bacon - maybe once every two or three months. Otherwise, I get my chicken-flavore- d kitty treats. Oh, yeah, I almost forgot. I also like little tiny pieces of chicken and cheddar cheese. Did I mention I'm fussy?

Where I hang out: I love lying in the sun by the window, watching the birds at the feeders. OR anyplace Mom happens to be. Mom says I'm her furry little girl friend. She put more pictures of me at the bottom of this page. Check them out.

My favorite grubs: I eat Friskies canned Ocean Whitefish & Tuna - a can each day. I'm a fussy girl but Mom said it's a good thing. When kitties were getting sick from their food, I didn't because I wouldn't eat those things. Guess being fussy can be a really good thing, right?

My pet peeves: I avoid company and I really dislike loud noises.

What I love about my owners: My mommy loves me and lets me cuddle with her. She also lets me watch all the birds from a safe place inside the house. She says it's safe for me, but it's also safe for the birds, right?

My cat hobbies: I like to watch the birds, sleep, and cuddle with Mom.

Pet motto: Never waste a sunny spot when it's nap time.

How We Met

My mom prayed for the right cat, then when she was allowed to have a cat at her apartment she headed to the private shelter where she volunteered. I had just come in and was very afraid and hiding under the contents of my enclosure. My mom took everything out of the cage and put her hand over my back. I immediately raised up into her hand and boy that felt good. Mom put in adoption papers and took me home a few hours later.

Hi A Q Cherish, It's me, 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!

♥ 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.

here we go again
cc's having hiccups and you're the first as janet was halfway through your blog and it was totally gone! grrr!!! :( oh well can't or don't have time to dwell on that one. got a nice break from the heat and humidity, but this weekend that'll all come back and all of next week be like the dog days of summer but with kids going back to school a good many did this week and the rest start this coming week, likely they'll be on a schedule some of getting out half days due to the heat and others will try to stay the course and get out on time, but again one never knows at that time. janet will come straight home from work and freeze some corn the last of hers this year and the lima beans she did up last weekend. by this weekend likely will be more than enough to do up another big basket filled with them as the ground limas are getting set to take a break and the pole ones are coming in as are the pole string beans and soon the ground ones what was saved from the birds the middle of last month. sandy,ab,haley, angels

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

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

Love to you all,
Talley

Hi A Q Cherish, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 26

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

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


And now today, something a little different:

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

And a poem

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


I love you all,
Talley

water fun day!
what a gorgeous day and only going to get a bit cooler the next few days before starting to heat up again with increasing hum-idity which is nothing new either. today sunny breezy feels good too janet says to the lower 80s and only upper 70s tomorrow and 80 on friday before the mid 80s this weekend. watch out next week though, upper 80s and lower 90s which will feel more like upper 90s and lower 100s with high humidity/heat indexes as well so not good for doing much more than being near a source of water all those days! trouble is janet can't she's gotta work and not much one can do when that happens, right?
she was out a bit later, but still early hitting more traffic than she liked, but again the time of the year it happens when we're losing light as fast as we gain it! she took some nice pictures, got home changed, was out picking 3 tomatoes, lima and string beans, and then peaches as well. lastly down on all 4's weeding out the front flower/herb garden as it was kind of in need of it last being done earlier last month. she still has corn to husk and freeze as well as lima beans she did up last weekend. sandy,ab,haley,angels

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

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

http://www.alleycat.org/EveryKittyEveryCity

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

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

And now, a funny poem for today:

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

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

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

goliath laid down on momma's bed as usua tonightl. but seemed different so momma took the hard pastic collar from his neck and he rolled over on his back and cuddled into momma's arms with his nose buried against her neck
momma laid there with him that way till she had to (excuse this) pee when she got up well of course goliath did too and "said" momma I need to pee too. momma at this ppoint took the much larger "soft collar" off (it kept him from reaching past the hard one to lick

anyhoo, momma just spent a very breathless and painful 25 minutes what with her copd and back problems, walking goliath round our 1 acre yard with his leash in one hand and her glock 45 in the other ( not taking any chances on that scum bag that was breaking in her bedroom window last sunday nite) for protection. anyway goliath had the best time in four weeks and when he got a bit fast for momma all she had to do was say my bubba too fast and he would stop and let momma catch up and then walk slower for her.

aww momma will always wonder why a doggie cant just walk out in the yard and pee or poop instead of making at least 3 trips over the same area and then wind up coming right back to the place he started to begin with to poop

aaahhhh the tings we do for our furkids.
again thank all of yall so very much for ur prayers and to momma janet( dean and fam) and momma Irene, queen Maggie and a ginger, and momma Amanda( k whiskers and fam) for the donations they sent to help with goliath's vet bill. it helped so much regardless that I still am facing a 900.00 bill at this time. it will all come around and be handled by god's or momma's efforts

♥ SATURDAY 8/22; Mom and dad went to Wal*Mart one more roll of the plastic edging which was on sale for $3.00 less plus they got some shoes, a big bag of Preen Weed Preventer and a few other items. When they got home, mom realized she forgot to get a couple pair of jeans for herself. Later that evening mom planted her Mexican Orange tree in the ground that she had in a pot and her Re-blooming Pink Josie Lilac that came earlier this year from an order.

♥ SUNDAY; Mom had to get dad up at 6:00am as he was going fishing with his nephew David on the Florence, Oregon coast. The Comcast Tech guy came about 9:00am as the new DVR was messing up so bad Saturday that mom couldn't even watch TV all that day!!!! He checked it out and all it was needing was the HDMI cable replaced as it was old plus he gave mom two new TV controllers after he programmed them. Mom couldn't believe how clear and beautiful the stations came in and looked like they were in 3-D!!!! After everyone was gone, mom went to Wal*Mart to get her new jeans plus there were some light weight long sleeve shirts on sale so she got three for herself. Later, mom washed, dried and folded 4 loads of clothes included the new ones she just bought.

♥ SUNDAY night; Dad finally got home about 9:30 or so and he actually caught about 10-15 Perch and they also got some Clams. Dad was so tired so mom suggested putting ice in a bucket over the fish then he could clean them the next day so mom had to go to Fred Myers to buy a big bag of ice then they set it in the back of dad's truck to stay safe and not smell up the house!!!!

Hi Angel Cherish
I got your message as well and I think a cloud picnic is a great idea. Our Moms will be so happy to see how we live and it would ease their minds as well. I am bringing some cotton catnip candy, pink of course. I think they would like that too. See you soon, love and hugs, Angel Maggie

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

Talley

Hi Angel Cherish and Mom June
We are expecting cooler weather to start this Wednesday and it will be beautiful for days afterward. Mom doesn't like going out in the garden when it is hot and humid because of all the bugs. Summer will be over soon and the fall will be here, Mom loves the fall but not the winter. At least Mom doesn't have to work hard to get to work this winter if she can't make it in on Wednesday she just picks another day to go in. It is nice for Mom being semi-retired. She loves it too. Hope you are having a great Sunday. Sending love and hugs, Angel Maggie, Miles and Mom Pat

sleepover tues/water fun wed!
we've got changing weather going from gorgeous yesterday, dry and lower 80s back to the sticky humid conditions with boomers this afternoon and more tomorrow night through sometime on wed-nesday. we have just seen and posted the next 3 month temp wise outlook for us which is above average temps so that's good news and are hoping it won't mean sinker types of storms which sure makes a big mess, but would rather have those in a way to keep the snow amounts down and not amount to more than a small amount if that. janet and nat got out like they did yesterday once she was home from work and changed. just won't likely do it tomorrow seeing it's errand day. they also messed up janet's schedule yet again at work so instead of what they are saying she's working 6-11. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi A Q Cherish, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 23

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

8. Volunteer, if you can!

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

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

Nothing new here, but just a reminder.

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

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

I love you all, dear friends,
Talley

Hi A Q Cherish, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 21

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

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

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

By Stacey Olner

we love you all,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Love to all of you,
Talley

when momma called the vet today they told her they were able to get most of the remaining dead skin off and hoped to finish it up tomorrow (thurs) but felt it would be a lot less stressful on him and momma to let him stay rather than to bring him home and have to bring him right back

momma and gma had a good time together today since this is the first "break" she as had from caring for goliath the past 4 weeks. when momma got back home and saw she needed to let goliath stay, she went to work putting fresh corn on the cob in the freezer and will pass the time tomorrow waiting to bring him home making and canning good ole vegetable soup.

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

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

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

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

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

Purrs and Hugs,
Your furiend always,
Talley

water fun day!
janet's up before the times even on her day off which normally she'd be out as it's starting to get light and walking, but is instead sitting here getting as much blogging on cc done as she can. she's gotta get her car over to the honda dealership for 8 this morning to have the airbag recall fixed plus get an in-spection sticker seeing it's her month to get it done. we're crossing our paws it'll pass as it's had a little work done to it and if it doesn't well there's a big cost in that, but she's been praying it will pass this morning.
one more day of hot lower 90s...yes we know it's cool for you guys, but to us with the high humidity/heat index it makes it feel even more miserable out there and the past 3 days has felt more like 100 and will be near that again today before the weather starts changing and going back to the mid 80s with high humidity continuing straight through this weekend into monday, then and only then will temps drop to the lower 80s and lower humidity as well as drying us out! it's good for the things in the garden like tomatoes which are coming on like gang busters as well as helping to bring back the string beans from near decimation from birds earlier this spring! sandy,ab,haley,angels

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

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

hoping you can make the sleepover/games today and tomorrow, but again we know whenever you do happen to visit us we're extremely lucky whenever that might be! :) got hot temps for today and tomorrow lower 90s with high humidity, then lower to mid or upper 80s thurs-tues with continued high humidity and daily chances of a boomer/rain/downpours/showers during that time. janet did lose all her pumpkins, summers squash and ground string beans to birds this year and not rabbits as she's had problems with birds in the past, but nothing like this! at least the pole string beans are now coming back as are a few cukes she managed to save by covering them up with netting she took off the blueberries. she's having a good year for lima beans and corn this year too, and froze her first bag of limas and will do another one soon! sandy,ab, haley,angels

Momma called The Veterinary Hospital this morning to let them know that I got barfy yesterday evening and also asked if my UltraSound Results came in yet and said it came in Sunday.

Momma finally got my UltraSound Results this morning (8/17) as Dr. Nancy and said that I have CHRONIC PANCREATITIS and INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE. She told momma that I will continue to take the Prednisolone every other day. Dr. Nancy also called in a script for me to take Azithromycin. That should be ready late today or in the morning.
Mom added 2 pis of me before & during my UltraSound also my profile pic.

Momma is still very worried about me and we both Thank You for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers!

GIRL POWER CREW is inviting you to stop by on TUESDAY (8/18) all day in Remembrance of our AUNT SAMANTHA #15442 for this is her Forever Sleep of 3 years! Aunt Samantha was a girl as she stood up to those Raccoons that came to the back patio to eat the kitty food. She even swatted at one several times in its face as the coon covered its face with its paws then finally left as Aunt Samantha was one not to give up not even at age 14. Momma was worried that a coon would end her life one day, but it was 2 PitBulls that did that and it was a very brutal attack which happened in our back yard.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hi A.Q. Cherish
Wow, riding on the back of a motorcycle at 110mph? Your Mom is a lot braver than our Mom! Mom won't ride passenger on a two-wheeler, because she is too independent and stubborn for that. She wants control of her own handlebars! Dad may not like it much, but he was smart enough to let Mom have her own motorcycle. Our pawrents have decided not to ride for a while, due to the heat and smoke from the wildfires making things very unpleasant outdoors.

We hope you are keeping cool during this awful heat wave.

Purrs,

Hi A Q Cherish, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 16

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


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

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

Hi Cherish!
I've know for a couple of days that the relocation was set for this weekend. But I wanted to let Boo Kitty make the official announcement, and of course I hoped and hoped that Mom Janada would pull off another rally the way she did a month ago. The relocation was all planned and about to go into action that time, but then Janada got better and got to go home so it was so very wise that everyone kept quiet. I've been on pins & needles all morning, watching CMR and hoping to see the announcement and hoping at the same time to NOT see it, know what I mean?

After I left my comment on CMR in response to Boo Kitty's post, Mom got straight on the phone to Mom Janada. She had tried yesterday but even going through the hospital switchboard, the phone just rang & rang. Not so this morning, she got through to Mom Janada who sounded very tired but when Mom told her the update was posted on CMR she wanted Mom to read it to her. So she read Boo Kitty's update and the one we posted too.

Mom Janada says that when Moms Debby & Toni went to see the girls at home last night, Dolly actually sat on Mom Toni's lap and got pets & snuggles. Dolly is so shy that that is nothing short of a miracle! And this morning, Dolly was happy to see Mom Toni and came right out for more snuggles and to get in her carrier. You had better believe that made Mom Janada very happy, and it makes us happy too.

Since the new Mom is Q. Spunky's Mom, sure we will still have contact and Mom Janada will get updates on how the girls are doing. I know their family doesn't spend a lot of time on CC and they don't go to a lot of the Castle activities, but I want to get Mom to ask Mom Toni if she minds if I still bring Dolly to some of the events. And of course we will always have our Rainbow Rose Manor and our retreat on Pinto Island.

And we'll always have our CC friends, too. We're thankful to be able to count you & your Mom among them. -- Mike

What a wonderful time we had yesterday on that cloud. I love watching Mom and making sure she is alright. I know you do too with your Mom. Lets go to the stream and use the paddle boat. I have packed a lunch of fish and cheese snacks and a big jug of catnip tea. I will pick you up and off we go. Love, Angel Maggie
