How We Met

She was left at my vets office when her owners lost their house to forclosure and could not have a pet where they were going. They had her spayed and gave her her shots in hopes that it would make her easier to get adopted and then asked the vets office to try to find her a home before taking her to the pound. They asked me if I knew any one who wanted a cat and I said no but I would ask around. They asked me if I wanted to see her and I said OK. I went back to the cage and she stretched her paw out as far as she could and meowed. They took her out and asked if I wanted to hold her. As soon as I had her in my arms she started purring and head butting. We went to her furever home. She loves every one and even purred through her last exam and shots. She is the most outgoing kitty I have ever seen and it must have devasted the former owners to have to give her up.

THE URBAN IDITEROD CONTINUES ….

A crowd gathers at the next checkpoint, the very popular Win’s Pizzeria! Colt & Angel Shilo are ready with pots of Chili Catfish Gumbo and … here come the racers! Who’s ahead? It looks like ….

Team Pinto Island! The cart’s decorated in a tropical theme complete with palm trees, with A. K. Max and A. Q. Gracie dressed in their RC Cola and Moonpie outfits. K. Steve, Hot Rod & Mr.Sniff are pullin’ with all their might. Go kitties!!

Watch out, Team Pinto Island! Mischief and Dayzee are coming up behind with their Angels and doggie Molly (dressed as a Cheetah!) mushin’ for all they’re worth! K. Steve takes action, quickly chompin’ some Double Bubble and soon the other teams are in a pink sticky mess. Now was that nice?

White Squirrel Campground is the last checkpoint before the finish line! Kimber & A. Kaycee dish out gumbo while the teams race through! Princess JoJo & teammates in the hot pink cart are hampered by a wobbly wheel, but they are hangin’ in there & chuggin’ along!

Team Quincy is not to be underestimated even though her cart is bein’ pulled by tiny mice! Our future Queen mushes along, K. Leo by her side as she practices the Royal Wave while eatin’ micey creams. And the crowd goes wild!

The teams are nearin’ the finish line! Adorkable and Puzzle have been grillin’ while they wait, Puzzle fell asleep again and …. Well, there’s a lotta smoke in the air <koff! Koff!> Puzzle tries to blow it away by wavin’ the checkered flag …. Even though he’s not sure he’s even wavin’ it in the right direction! First across it’s K. Tuck with Mouse, Dot and Maizie in the cart that Mouse stayed up ALL night knittin’ a cover for! Very classy!

Second is Team Zoo Crew! Addin’ that little beagle of yours made the difference. And … whoa! Morgan won’t stop! She’s draggin’ the whole team straight to the Castle kitchen! Everyone bail out!

Team Georgia Peach is third with the help of Maggie Meme and her girlfriend’s two black labs. Once everyone has crossed the finish line, Queen MJ and King Angel Spike have more trophies:

Best decorated: Team Royals, Q. Lily, Q. A. Misty (with her Angel doggie Scruffy), Q. Zoe Monique and K. Spanky Jack, who have turned their shopping cart cart into a great big crown.

Runner-up best decorated: K. Sams, smokin’ hot with bright racin’ car flames.

Nicest team: Team S Sisters with Sienna, Sable and Angel Sakura dressed in Steampunk costumes & pulled by their neighbourhood doggie friends. They didn’t move too fast because they were gathering pet food, toys & treats for homeless cats & dogs! Well done ladies!

The Hairballz are here, and they volunteer to get the donations distributed and load all the carts up so we can truck ‘em back to the supermarkets!

Thanks, everyone! You kitties rock! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

WELCOME TO THE CAT CHANNEL URBAN IDITEROD!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Okay, today it’s time for a little service project. Oh, quit groanin’ I promise I will make this fun. See, February is Return Carts to the Supermarket Month and that’s a perfect opportunity for ….. an Urban Iditerod!

What is an Urban Iditerod, you may ask? Well, you’ve probably heard of the Alaskan Iditarod, where more than sixty dog sled teams race across the frozen tundra from Anchorage to Nome the first Saturday in March. In the urban version, teams of ‘dogs’ lead by a musher will pull their sleds (aka shopping carts) through an urban environment to the finish line

So let’s get busy! First we go around, collect all of the shoppin’ carts we can. Bonus if we find those ones that the humans hafta put money in, right? Then comes the fun. We get a buncha kitties together, dress up in goofy costumes, form teams with some suckers .... I mean friends ... to pull the shopping cart while one of us rides in it and the other steers & hollers "MUSH!" I kid you not, humans really truly do that.

The First Urban Iditarod was held in San Francisco in 1994. Traditionally the race is run the first Saturday in March along with the Alaskan version, but it does vary by city and since I am the Queen, I say February is the purrfect time do our CC Urban Iditerod.

As an incentive to run, we will have several ‘check points’ to replenish lost fluids and discuss tales of mayhem. At these check points our Guest Chefs du Jour, Angel Chyna and the Triplets, will have vats of A. Chyna’s famous gumbo. I hear they’re plannin’ on Jambalaya and Chili Catfish Gumbo. The Triplets, Colt, Winchester and Kimber, are makin’ some of their famous fudge. That’ll keep our energy up!

The course will be long and arduous, so dogs and mushers alike need to be ready and able to run their tails off. So gather your carts, gather your friends, decorate your carts and and get your crazy costumes ready, tomorrow mornin’ we race! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Before I forget (like I did yesterday!) I have been getting’ a whole lotta compliments on my Queenly profile picture. K. Whiskers’ talented Mom made that awesome picture for me, ain’t it awesome? I think she really managed to capture the essence of Angel Mallow, Beneficent Ruler of the Universe! Um .. I mean, CC Queen of February. Getting’ ahead of myself there, mol.

I have some cool info for ya today ~~ Mom was flippin’ through the latest Catster magazine the other day when she saw somethin’ that goes paw in paw with my Lost & Found campaign. So today I thought I’d share with ya about somethin’ called the Kitty Convict Program.

Put the Royal Bail Fund away, Quincy, we don’t need it. Not for this one anyway. See, the Kitty Convict Program recognizes a problem, bein’ that of the over 7 million pets who go missin’ every year. 26% of dogs get back home, and not even 5% of cats.

Some of the reasons for this: Number One, more dogs wear collars with ID of some kind

Number Two: We felines are better at hidin’ than dogs are and for most of us, hidin’ is our first line of defense – by the way, statistics say that 2/3 of missin’ kitties who are found are found within 4 – 5 houses of where they live. Kitties in my campaign stories are the rare exceptions!

And now, the third reason kitties have a lower return rate: Think about it, when humans see a canine runnin’ around outside, first thing they do is look for a human nearby and if they don’t see one they say “Hey! That doggie must be lost!” But when people see a feline outside, they just say “oh look, a kitty” and don’t think much more of it. They just figure a kitty outside is .. well, a kitty outside! So the ones who do have someone lookin’ for them can miss an important chance to get help getting’ back home!

The Kitty Convict Project humans thought about all this and came up with a bright idea. Literally. They are encouragin’ all indoor kitties to wear orange collars with their ID tag. Why orange? Well for one thing, it’s bright and easy to notice. AND most importantly, because convicts wear orange their mission is to make the colour of “convict orange” an easily recognizable symbol of indoor cats. It lets people know that if they see a kitty outside who is wearin’ an orange collar, that kitty might actually be an “escapee” who needs help getting’ home.

Whether you like it or don’t, we gotta give these humans credit for creative thinkin’! To find out more, you can visit explodingkittens.com/kittyconvict. Just thought I’d pass it on ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Rise & shine, kitties, it’s Groundhog Day! Or as they say in Quebec, Jour de la Marmotte. Oh, the suspense! Will good ol’ Punxsutawney Phil and his many counterparts emerge from their burrow to tell us that spring is on the way, or are we in for six more weeks of winter? I hear that there may be some kitties around who are takin’ bets on this, though I my Angelic self would not know anything about such activities!

You’re all invited to Mallow Castle to watch the results come in from across the continent while enjoyin’ a ‘Mallow Tastin’ Pawty. See, you may not know that I happen to own substantial stock in a little enterprise outta Mississauga Ontario known as the Evie & Mallow Bakery (absolutely a for real place!) and we have brought in a generous assortment of their fine product for the occasion.

Angel Q. Gracie’s earth sibs Jeeves, Cadbury and Mr. Belvedere, collectively known as The Butlers, have accepted the appointment as official Mallow Castle Butlers. They are all wearin’ their finest black & white tuxedoes and are ready to buttle for us today, carryin’ trays of delicious gourmet ‘mallows: Merlot Mallows, Lemon Meringue, Tutti Frutti, Mochaccino, even Peanut Butter & Chocolate.

And of course, before the day is through there will be a special Royal screenin’ of that fine film “Groundhog Day”.

Psst … rumour has it that some of our CC Angels are ready to follow the sun this mornin’ and discreetly provide shade to guarantee that those pesky rodents won’t be seein’ their shadows. Think that counts as cheatin’? ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Thank you for pouncing by.....
to help me celebrate my 6th birthday on January 29th! I loved seeing each of you & deeply appreciate the loving hugs, sweet purrs, beautiful balloons, delicious cakes/cupcakes, & other meowvelous goodies that you brought over for the pawty. The extra sweet icing on the cake was winning COTD on the 30th....which happened because of all the birthday votes you left me! Thank you for helping me celebrate both of these special days dear furiends!
********************************************
Happy Groundhog Day!! The annual critter prediction is an early spring...woohoo!! As mild as the winter has been for us we're not surprised but will be keeping our paws crossed that he's right!
I will continue as the family blogger this month since our angel dog took all of my time last month doing his campaign. It was worth it though because he's now King Angel Spike! If you'd like to see him just go to dogChannel.com & click on the Club Dog tab on the far right. You don't have to be a member to do that much...MOL! He'll still be posting a daily blog but won't be visiting as many pages...especially since the format over there allows all of his friends to see the post via notifications. Anyway.....

Patches is doing 100% better since she's being fed wet food (small amounts) several times a day & taking her nutritional supplement. She's got a bounce in her steps again & is back to giving us the 'just try it & get whacked' look...MOL!
The rest of us ornery girls are doing great too but we are looking forward to spring so we can have some open windows to sit in. It's just not the same chirping at birds through triple pane glass...MOL!

Well I've got to run for now because rain/thunderstorms are moving our way & mom doesn't allow us on her laptop in nasty weather. Thank you again for sharing my birthday & COTD winning days last week!!

Happy purrs,
Q Trixie & NICE Crew

I wanna thank everyone once again for supportin’ me in my campaign, I really had a great time tellin’ you stories and now we are gonna have a blast at the Castle.

Speakin’ of the Castle, you might notice a few changes. It so happens there is an honest-to-goodness real Castle in County Cork Ireland called Mallow Castle … in fact, there’s actually two of ‘em. With that many, they won’t miss one for a month, will they? Angel K. Pushkin knows a kitty who knows a kitty, so we have arranged to have Mallow Castle shipped over to CC-land brick by brick and reassembled by Angel power. It should be done right about … oh, NOW! Welcome to my humble abode, there’s a picture down in my gallery!

Boy, what a claw-biter yesterday! I had plans to get all my final campaign blogs out early and then … CC was DOWN!! All morning! Well, I was not gonna put up with that, I got busy and had some words with the fleas & gremlins but they swore they had nothin’ to do with it this time. Well, they were right. Turns out this time it was those Irish Angels who were workin’ on my Mallow Castle construction project. See, some of ‘em brought their European power tools along and when they plugged ‘em in to the North American sockets … lights out. But we managed to get CC back up with 15 minutes to spare till the coronation was supposedta start. Do I know how to make an entrance or what? See I told ya, Nobody messes with the Mallow!

~ Now, for some Royal appointments ~

My handsome hubs Sir Oscar Jon will of course be my Prince Consort. My pal Kuzi is Official ‘Nip Grower By Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen and, since who knows what kinda shenanigans we might find ourselves up to this month, our February candidate Quincy will be Keeper of the Royal Bail Money. Just in case (wink). Q. Mimi will be my Royal Greenskeeper and we have somethin’ fun planned with that later on!

Since my sister Evie usedta live with Big Sis Becky in Calgary when Becky was goin’ to Chef school, I appoint her to be my Royal Kitchen Manager. For our events this month she has co-ordinated some very special Guest Chefs, so that we can showcase a few of our talented kitties and have lotsa good eats.

We’re kinda informal here around Mallow Castle, and since bein’ Mrs. Mallow Jon makes me & the hubs known as “OJ & MJ”, you can just call me “Queen MJ”

Lookin’ forward to a rockin’ great time! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Thanks, CoCo! I appreciate your support!

I tell ya, CC sure knows how to drive us crazy. I had Mom all set to get an early start on my final campaign blogs this mornin' and then when we went to log on to CC .... it was DOWN!! And it stayed down! King Miles was frantic and the Commish was just about tearin' his fur out! Coronation Day AND All-Star Weekend, what timing! But once again I went & had a serious talk with those gremlins and they gave it up just 15 minutes before the coronation was supposedta start. I KNEW thay would not dare mess with the Mallow!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Come tomorrow: It’s a Marshmallow World!!

Marmie: FOUND

Since late July 2014, Mike & Jane Lille of Surrey England had been noticin’ a stray orange cat. They first saw it huntin’ in a wide freeway median and by mid-September the kitty had worked its way into their neighbourhood but would run away anytime the Lilles tried to get near. They put out food and slowly it came closer to their house, under their van and then into their garage … then finally into the house. It wasn’t till early November that the Lilles finally were able to take the kitty to the vet to be checked out. The vet scanned for a microchip, found one, and it turns out this kitty was Tracy Brewster’s missing Marmalade! Looks like the no-good ex had driven about 60 miles along the freeway and then pulled over to put Marmalade out in the median, where he was probably expected to go runnin’ out into traffic and come to a bad end. But Marmie got the last laugh there, the pampered senior indoor cat survived almost 4 months!

A very happy Tracy Brewster posted this message to her faithful Marmie Army on November 19th 2014:

“Marmie was found in Surrey and had been there from day one. I would never of found him had he not been chipped. Marmie has had the most horrendous time. He has been fending for himself up until the last 2 weeks, he was seen in a central reservation with motorways each side of him, after a few days of him going missing, my baby was out on his own for over three-and-a-half months, my cat was a house cat and I would of never believed he could of looked after himself but he did, he is ok and he slept with me all last night.”

The Lille’s wrote to Tracy “Seeing you reunited with him was wonderful. We had no idea of Marmie’s story and the search for him. It took us totally by surprise! …. We are so pleased to have ended your nightmare and wish you both all the best.”

Sadly, when Tracy took Marmie to be checked out they found that he had developed kidney failure and after 11 months back in the arms of his devoted Mum he crossed the Bridge October 23, 2015. The Find Marmie FB page continues in his honour, devoted to helpin’ lost pets get back home.

The final word hasta go to Marmie’s Mum “ .. if you have lost your cat never ever give up and do whatever you can to find them, go that bit further & it will pay off & if not at least you can say you have done everything possible for your baby.”

Marmie: LOST!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Same CAT-time, same CAT-Channel!

Crossing Day thank you from Angel Smokey ♥
Thank you, CoCo and all the Hairballz, for coming to honour my crossing day, I had one of the greatest lives a kitty could ever have and on this special day I’d like to leave you with a thought that I once drew Mom’s attention to:

“Before humans die, they write their Last Will and Testament, giving their home & all they have to those they leave behind. If, with my paws I could do the same, this is what I’d ask:

“To a poor & lonely stray I’d give:

“My happy home
My bowl & cozy bed, soft pillows and all my toys
The lap which I loved so much
The loving hand which stroked my fur and the voice which spoke my name

“I’d will to the scared shelter kitty the place I had in my human’s loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds.

“So when I die, please do not say “I will never have a pet again, for the loss & pain is more than I can stand”

“Instead, go find an unloved one whose life has held no joy or hope and give my place to HIM

“This is the only thing I can give, the love I leave behind.” ~~ Unknown

Thanks again for coming to help celebrate my life. – Angel Smokey

In 2000, a girl named Jackie Sharp was goin’ to college at Santa Rosa Junior College in Petaluma California. It was her first year, with all kindsa new experiences and a whole lotta stress. Her 3 year old kitty named Dallas was with her through good times and bad.

Then Dallas disappeared into a nearby creek.

'It was horrible,' Jackie said. 'I was looking everywhere for him. It was very sad. I loved that cat. At the end of the day I would come home and he would just curl up on my lap and purr. He was always there for me. He got me through a lot.'

Years went by, Jackie graduated and moved away but she always kept pictures of her pal Dallas and occasionally stopped to think of him and to wonder what happened.

Then, in spring of 2013, at the same creek where Dallas had disappeared in 2000 a man found a stray kitty who was in bad shape. He took the kitty to Laurie Atwood, who feeds some of the feral cats living by the creek.

Laurie took the kitty to the emergency vet clinic, where he was checked over and scanned for a microchip. He had one, and very shortly a stunned Jackie Sharp got a call from the VCA Animal Care Centre in Rohnert Park, CA, telling her that they had her cat. It took her a while to realize they were talking about Dallas.

'I was in shock,' said Jackie, by then 34. 'It has been 13 years. I figured he had found a new home or was gone by now. It was so amazing, he was the coolest cat ever and I missed him so much.'

Dallas was given life-saving treatment, put on a feeding tube and given a blood transfusion. Dr. Robin Schaffner, the emergency vet who treated him said that the cat was close to dying and would probably have been put down if they hadn’t found the microchip.

'He was completely dehydrated and emaciated. He probably would have passed away within hours without aggressive treatment. The microchip saved his life,' Dr Shaffner said.

It was a long haul for Dallas, but he recovered and the happy day came that Jackie was able to take him home. She told reporters that Dallas recognised her the moment he entered.

'He stared at me, then he climbed up into my lap and started to purr,' she said. 'I always loved his eyes with those grey specks in them. Once I saw his eyes, I knew it was him. He’s a fighter. If he can make it through living in a creek for 13 years, he can make it through anything.'

If you think this story sounds familiar, it’s because Queens Maggie & Angel Ginger told it in their campaign a few months back. But it is so good I just hafta tell it too!

In 1949 the Smith family were getting’ ready to move from St. Petersburg, Florida all the way out to California! They were worried how their kitty Tom would handle such a long trip and because they’d once read that cats often get more attached to a place than to people, they were delighted when they saw that Tom seemed to like the man who bought their house, Robert Hanson.

The Smiths thought that it would be best for Tom to not have his normal routines interrupted and made the decision to leave him with Mr. Hanson. They were sad to leave Tom behind, but relieved that he would have a good home. Over and over they told themselves that done the right thing.

Two weeks later after they moved into their new home in San Gabriel, the Smiths got a letter from Robert Hanson with the news that Tom had run away. They felt awful that because they had done what they thought was best for Tom, now he had run off and would probably come to a sad end.

Then, on an August afternoon on 1951, two years and six weeks after their move to California, Mrs. Smith heard a cat wailing in her yard. The noise was drivin’ them up the wall, and Mr. Smith went outside to chase the intruder out of the yard. Imagine his amazement when the cat ran toward him and leaped into his arms! It took him only a moment to recognize their old friend Tom.

Mrs. Smith was more skeptical. After all, Tom was a sleek, well-fed handsome feline while THIS kitty was scraggly, skinny, worn, frazzled and so weak that it collapsed on the kitchen floor when Mr. Smith brought it into the house. Its fur was bleached by the sun and had come out in handfuls. Its paws were bloody and covered in scabs.

Then Mrs. Smith thought of a sure test. They had raised their Tom on baby food, and he had a real “thing” for Pablum. She went to the store and bought some, then put a saucer of it on the floor. Well, battered and beaten though he was, the cat got to his feet and dived into the baby food right up to his whiskers. The Smiths were now convinced that their old Tom had found his way to their home in San Gabriel, California, all the way from St. Petersburg, Florida-way across the continent and across 2,500 miles of unfamiliar terrain!

Guess Tom had been more attached to his people than they could have ever imagined!

Neelix here. On behalf of my precious wife, Katie Louise Brown, please allow me to thank each and every one of our CC Furamily who have stopped by to lend support, love and concatulations for Katie's COTD, those who have left prayers for Angel Monty, for their dear mom. Dee, and for the entire Brown Six Pack.

Mom Dee is unable to do much blogging at this time because of her optical condition, and the recent crossing of Angel Monty, so I am honored to extend my Katie's heartfelt gratitude for the COTD Award. It has definitely raised her spirits and put a smile on her sweet furry face. Thank you all. We love you.

Many purrs, K. Neelix

It has been a very rough month for our CC friends, and today I wanna start out with a tribute to our King of July 2015, the amazing Montgomery George Brown. I remember my family first met Monty back in summer or 2011 when he was diagnosed with cancer and the vet said he had maybe 6 months left with us. Well, that was 4 ½ years ago and Monty has amazed us again and again, but he has reached the end of his journey and is makin’ his trip to the Bridge today. I and all the CC Angels will be there to meet him with a hero’s welcome!

Now, today’s story:

No one wants an apartment fire, especially not when you’re a human with a kitty. Who more than likely will be under the bed at the first hint of smoke, not to mention those noisy alarms!

Anyway, the worst case scenario happened to Megan Martin in July of 2014 when there was a huge fire at her condo complex in Edmonton, Alberta Canada. The fire caused over 10 million bucks in damages and left 400 humans without homes. Megan was one of them.

As if all that wasn’t bad enough, Megan’s kitty Harmony was in the building when the fire happened and when she got the all-clear to go gather her belongings, she couldn’t find Harmony anywhere!

Megan went back to the building complex time after time to look for Harmony and called for help from SAFE Team Rescue, who she had originally adopted Harmony from. The rescue group helped by puttin’ up flyers and leavin’ food out so Harmony wouldn’t go hungry. But despite the everyone’s best efforts, with no sign of Harmony everyone began to fear the worst.

“It’s almost like losing a child,” Martin told CBC News. “You don’t think that your pets are going to be that close to you, but it was very heartbreaking.”

But four months after the fire, with demolition and rebuilding still goin’ on a demolition worker who was back at the condo building found Harmony alive! She was hidin’ in the wall of a third-floor unit, one floor down from Megan’s condo.

Due to SAFE Team Rescue’s efforts, the workers knew who to call about the cat. The rescue organization happily contacted Megan and reunited her with her Harmony.

Harmony had lost way too much weight, and understandably she was pretty jumpy & nervous at first, but she was happy to be with her human again, safe and receiving all the love—and food—that any pet could ask for.

Megan says that she doesn’t know how Harmony survived the fire or four months with very little food or water, but she is thrilled to have her girl safely back at home.

Our Dad grew up with his Dad in the Royal Canadian Air Force, and he usedta delight in tellin’ how when his family unpacked from one of their many moves, they found a moldy oldy half-eaten sandwich in one of the boxes. But when the Barth family of Virginia opened the boxes after a move to Hawaii in September 2014, they found not a sandwich, but their missing kitty!!

Don’t worry, the kitty’s okay! This is our happy place after all.

When everything was packed & ready for the big move, the Barths couldn’t find their kitty Mee Moowe! They postponed leaving for three days lookin’ for Mee Moowe but when she didn’t appear, they reluctantly hadda go ahead with the move. Everyone was devastated to leave behind the gray, short-haired cat had been with the family for their 10 year old daughter’s whole life!

But 36 days later when all the boxes were unloaded at their new house on the island of Maui, the Barths were shocked to hear a faint meow coming from one of the boxes! Well, you know us felines and our boxes, looks like Mee Moowe had crawled inside to explore and accidentally gotten sealed up! When she was finally freed, Mee Moowe had lost half her body weight and according to the vet, she was showin’ all the typical symptoms of starvation.

Unfortunately, the vet also told the Barths that Hawaii’s strict health rules for pets brought into the state meant that poor Mee Moowe hadda spend more three more months away from them, in quarantine because she hadn’t had her shots before the trip.

I somehow think Mee Moowe woulda MUCH rather had the (whisper) s-h-o-t-s than make the trip the way she did!

BONUS STORY:

I was mentionin’ to A. K. Pushkin one day that I didn’t have any Lost & Found stories from Ireland & I figured that must mean that the Irish took better care of their kitties. Well, he found me a story that happened not long ago to a kitty named Lilou who belonged to a guy named Eric Biec of North County Dublin. One day Lilou wandered down to the Malahide DART station and got on the 10:30 train to Dublin City Centre!

A passenger handed her over to station staff and word went out by way of the media and Twitter. Thanks to hundreds of tweets and retweets, worried Dad Eric was reunited with his wanderin’ kitty!

Lilou has made history by bein’ the very first animal to be issued with her very own rail card! Corporate Communications Manager at Iarnród Éireann Barry Kenny says

“Just in the off chance that she does travel again with us, we are going to issue her with her own smart card for the future, so that if she does decide to take the DART again she will have a valid ticket.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

~ A. Mallow's Lost & Found - Jan 23rd ~
Today I have a coupla very lucky kitties to tell ya about, and wouldja believe they are both named Charlie?

Charlie #1 showed up at Fort Wayne Indiana Animal Care and Control on April 21st, 2014. Nothin’ so much unusual there. Not even so unusual that Charlie was 10 years old. But after the shelter scanned Charlie for a microchip and found one identifyin’ Virginia Fryback as his owner, things got unusual.

Ms. Fryback was shocked because Charlie had disappeared five years earlier and she thought she'd never see him again! She thanks the veterinarian who convinced her to get the microchip way back when Charlie was a kitten.

Charlie’d better thank that vet, too. A FWACC spokesperson told reporters “The chip has likely saved Charlie’s life because most people choose to adopt a much younger cat.”

Charlie #2 is from way over in Stubbington, Hampshire, England. He’s a black & white guy who lived with Jo and Ade Haigh from 7 weeks old until the day in 2006 when he went outside and didn’t come back in. His people searched the area, put up “lost” posters and contacted all the local vets, but no Charlie!

Since then the Haighs moved more than two miles away but one day in October 2012 Mrs. Haigh was back in the old neighbourhood to look a bungalow her mother was thinkin’ about buyin’ when she, her mother and sister noticed a cat sittin’ on a wall outside of a house.

“I was immediately 99.9 per cent sure it was Charlie.” She said. “He was a lot skinnier but came straight over to me and responded to his name.

“We went and spoke to the man who lived there and he told me he had been feeding Charlie for about two and a half years.”

To the vet the kitty went to scan for a microchip, and he was definitely the long-lost Charlie!

A few things besides the address have changed since Charlie disappeared in 2006. The family now included 13 month old twins, two other cats and two dogs. But Charlie’s Mom said that even at 16 years old, Charlie was settlin’ in and takin’ even the twins in stride.

She also said that she’s so happy to have Charlie back that she’s scared to let him out of the house again.

I think that’s just as well!

~ A. Mallow's Lost & Found - Jan 22nd ~
It started one night in spring of 2014 when Ann Bosche of Lucedale, Mississippi was out walkin’ her d-o-g and found a kitty in her front yard. “We get several dogs and cats dropped off in this neighborhood so I figured this was another one,” Ann to reporters. “What came out from under that bush was a large, beautiful cat with a white tip on his tail. I said, ‘Aren’t you a fancy thing?”

And so she started to call him Mr. Fancy. He stuck around for a month, comin’ to Ann’s house every day for food and it was more than enough time for her to fall hard for him. But she & her husband already had a dog and two cats and he wanted to take this one to the local shelter. So Ann reluctantly put Mr. Fancy in a kitty carrier and “ … dropped him off and an attendant took him to the back where the cages are. When he brought me my carrier, he said that the cat was back there banging his head against the iron cage door. I cried the five miles back to my house.”

Ann kept checkin’ the shelter’s website, hopin’ to find updates on Mr. Fancy but never did see any. She hoped that meant someone had adopted him right away. But soon she found out that he had escaped from the shelter just 20 minutes after she’d left him there. She felt awful!

Then, early one morning about a month after she had last seen Mr. Fancy, Ann woke up to the sound of her husband talking to someone in the kitchen. She got up to see what the heck was goin’ on.

“I looked at the clock and wondered who was at my house at 5:30am,” she said. “I got up to see and what I found was nothing short of a miracle. I saw a cat, sitting at my husband’s feet, talking to him … and when he flipped his tail around, there was the white tip. I started crying and quietly said ‘Oh my baby, Hi Fancy.’ He turned, saw me and ran to me, talking and squealing the whole way.”

Well, there was no WAY her husband could argue with that! “This cat spent a month traveling along busy streets, rail road lines, and rough neighborhoods trying to find me,” Ann said. “I think he had a guardian angel looking out for him, directing him back to my house. I love him so much and feel we were meant to be together. He belongs here. Mr. Fancy will never want for a home, food or love again.”

A guardian Angel? Well (blush), it WAS one of my earliest assignments …

I gotta thank my pal Toby for this story that comes outta Bennington, Mass. It’s about a kitty named “Monster Cat” who belonged to a lady named Karen Halvorsen and would always share a special spot on her pillow. They were separated on Oct. 28, 2010, the one time Monster Cat was allowed to go outside.

So began a three-year ordeal that consumed much of Halvorsen’s life. She placed classified ads regularly in the Bennington Banner and when she would go to check out a lead she always took a bit of Monster Cat's hair from his pillow. She would also try to lure him in with familiar noises, like the sound of a food dish bein’ filled.

People told Halvorsen she was crazy, to get a new cat and move on with her life. "I couldn't live not knowing," she said. She could not have given up on him anymore than she could have forgotten one of her children.

Halvorsen reunited at least one other pet owner with their cat during her search, and she adopted a third cat, "Scooby," which someone had brought to her thinking it was the lost Monster Cat.

Ultimately it was Facebook and a rescue group that led to Monster Cat's homecoming in October 2013, after three long years.

A kitty fittin’ Monster Cat's description was bein’ fed by some people who saw his picture in the newspaper ads and used Facebook's "tag" function to notify Kaila Drosehn, rescue manager for Northern Berkshire Cat Rescue, who came to check things out.

The kitty was in such bad shape that Drosehn didn’t call Ms. Halvorsen for a few weeks because she did not know if he would live. Meanwhile, she paid for his vet treatments because "I had a white cat that somebody poisoned, so I had a soft spot for him,"

When Ms. Halvorsen first drove to the shelter to take a look she wasn’t sure if this sick, battered kitty was her Monster Cat. The second time, she brought Monster Cat's pillow. She broke into tears when the he recognized his old sleeping pillow and then his owner.

The plan had been to let the kitty recuperate for a few more days but Halvorsen could not bear to part with him again and so took him home, where he continued to get better. Even though he was eatin’ more and getting’ used to his house mates, he still showed the marks of a hard three years.

Halvorsen paid for a second classified ad to run after Monster Cat was found. It reads in part, "I would like to thank all of the people who cared, prayed, & kept their eyes open for him!"

Okay, you kitties know that I am a Siberian, right? My good pal K. Bennie tells me that in the language of my furfathers my name translates to “Zefir”. That’s pronounced like a worried Frenchman “ze FEAR!” Oh, I do gotta love that language!

Anyway, where I am goin’ with all this is that I hadda roar my Harley ALL the way to Russia to pick up this next story for ya. Yekaterinburg, to be exact. Where in November 2014, some workers laid new concrete pavement outside an apartment block. The humans who lived in the apartment soon noticed there was another problem with this new pavement. It … well, it kinda meowed!

I kid you not. It would appear that when they laid out the new pavement, there was a little teeny space. You KNOW how we felines love our little crawly spaces, and it WAS November, and a kitty did what kitties do. And was still hunkered in there when the concrete was poured!

Neighbours heard the mewing from the pavement and desperately tried to contact those in charge. Resident Ramiro Sokolov said: "I and some of the other neighbours rang the council but they said they weren't to blame and passed us onto the works office. They said they weren't to blame either, and had subcontracted it out to a private company.

"When we traced them, they also said they couldn't help as they needed the council's permission to dig the pavement up again. But then we couldn't find in the council exactly who should authorise permission – at least in time to save the animal.”

By this time, 10 days had gone by and the mews were becoming weaker. The group of neighbours decided to bypass the red tape & get the kitty out their very own selves. And after about 5 hours of sledgehammerin’ the new concrete, they eventually got to the kitty who was hungry, dehydrated, but otherwise unharmed.

According to the UK’s Daily Mirror the owner said:

“I had lost her 10 days ago, I didn’t know where she was and it’s great to have her back. I’m really grateful to all those people who got involved, and I have no idea how she ended up in the space under the walkway. I assume she must have been looking for mice.”

The Hairballz Rainbow Riders & I have duly delivered a case of vodka to Ramiro and his band of hero humans. Block pawty in Yekatarinburg!
