What I love about my owners: They rescued me when I was a kitten, then gave me and my brother a new home when my other Mommy died. They loved me and took good care of me.

How We Met

The two dogs that we had at that time had her cornered behind our trash cans. We got her out of there and cleaned her up. She was only 5-6 weeks old. We took her to the vet and then gave her to my mother, where she lived for the next 16 years, until my mother died in Dec. of 2009. We then adopted her and her brother Tom-Tom. We knew no one would probably want a 16 year old cat and we couldn't just give her to anyone. We were already attached to her and Tom.
She developed some problems with her bowels in December of 2014, which we treated with a couple of medicines and fluids. She did well holding her weight of 5 pounds for several months. Then in May, she started losing weight and became a lot weaker in her back legs. She got so she couldn't get around very well. The first of June, she could no longer walk and let us know it was time for her to cross the Bridge. We helped her over the Rainbow Bridge on June, 2nd 2015. She is very much missed!

HEY AQ DUCHESS!
HEY GIRL! IM HERE FOR OUR EARLY AFTERNOON CAT CHAT. ALL BLOGS DELIVERED, CINQO DE MAYO FOOD ALL PURPARED, CATIO DECORATED, ALL SYSTEMS GO AND TIME FOR A BREAK! IM SO GLAD YOU ENJOYED MY PINTO TRIVIA. YOUR DAD HAD A RED PINTO WAGON? I WAS SO SUPRISED TO SEE HOW MANY OF OUR CC FRIENDS HAD A PINTO OR NEW SOMEONE WHO DID. MOM HAD A NEIGHBOR AND SIS IN LAW WHO HAD THEM. IM GONNA FETCH ALL THE JUNKED PINTOS IN EXISTANCE, RESTORE THEM AND BRING THEM ALL DOWN TO THE PINTO. EVERY KITTY WILL HAVE THEIR OWN FORD PINTO. IT'S NOW THE OFFICIAL CAR OF PINTO ISLAND. IM GLAD YOUR FOLKS HAVE SOMETHING NICE TO SAY ABOUT THE HUMBLE LITTLE PINTO CUZ NOBODY ELSE DID.

MY MOM LIKES SMALL CARS. SHE ALWAYS HAD VW BUGS, BUT DID HAVE 2 VW BUSSES. HER FIRST CAR WAS A MINI COOPER WHICH WAS DA BOMB. SHE HAD A NISSAN SENTRA AND NOW A GEO METRO. THIS IS HER FIRST AUTOMATIC CAR. MOM DIDN'T KNOW SHE HAD ANY NECK PROBLEMS TIL SHE STARTED FALLING OVER LAST FALL. SHE'D JUST LOSE HER BALANCE AND GO KERPLUNK ON THE FLOOR, ON HER HEAD. SO THAT BROUGHT HER NECK ISSUES TO THE FOREFRONT WHERE SHE MIGHTA NEVER KNOWN OTHERWISE. HER NECK WAS HURTY SINCE THEN. I GUESS IGNORANCE WAS BLISS BEFORE THEN, BUT HER NECK DIDN'T HURT SO MUCH BEFORE. ITS ALWAYS BEEN STIFF BUT NOT LIKE THIS.

IM GLAD YOUR DADS PT IS WORKING. AND THAT IT'S AN EASY FIX. MOM SHOULD BE SO LUCKY. HOW DID DADS RIB END UP IN HIS SHOULDER BLADE? THE DOC SAID HE'S HATE TO SEE WHAT AN MRI WOULD SHOW ON MOMS LOWER SPINE. SHE'S HAD BONE DENSITY AND HER BACK IS HAVING NO OSTEO. IT DOESN'T BOTHER HER AT ALL. HOW FUN THAT YOUR DAD HAS A BATHTUB NECK PILLOW. MOMS A SHOWER TYPE O'GAL, SO SHE'LL GET THE BED NECK PILLOW. AIRLINES HAVE NECK PILLOWS? MOM REMEMEMBER IN 1998 FLYING HOME FROM HAWAII, SHE HAD TO SIT ON A BUNCH OF LITTLE PILLOWS. SHE THOUGHT SHE WAS BONY THEN AT 100 LB! SHE IS 88 NOW.

DOES YOUR MOM HAVE SCOLIOSIS? MY MOM JUST FOUND OUT SHE DOES. HER LEFT HIP GOES UP REALLY HIGH AND THE OTHER ONE IS NOWHERE TO BE FOUND. SHE'S GOT THIS MUSCLE MASS IN HER HIPS THAT GIVE HER PROBLEMS FROM TIME TO TIME. CALLED PYROFORMIS. MY MOM DOES BEST LAYING DOWN, TOO. SHE'S A REAL PRO AT THAT. OF COURSE YOU CAN TAKE YOUR PAWRENTS A GREAT BIG TO-GO BOX HOME OF MEXICAN FOOD LATER! THEY ARE WELCOME TO COME DOWN TO THE PINTO! WELL, GIRL, GOTTA RUN! TIME TO GET THIS PAWTY STARTED! LUVYA A.ELMIE ♥

HEY AQ DUCHESS & FAMILY!
THANKS FOR THE CONTINUING SUPPORT!! NOW WHERE WAS I? OH YEAH....PINTO ISLAND! THERE ARE MANY HEART SHAPED ISLANDS BUT ONLY ONE FROM MY
LOVELY WIFE POUNCER AND ONLY ONE PINTO ISLAND THAT IS TROPICAL. WHEN YOU ARE ON PINTO ISLAND, YOU ARE SURE TO HAVE A BARELL OF FUN! WE
HAVE MALLOWOOD BAY. IT'S NAMED FOR MAYOR AQ MALLOW (#161233) A VERY GOOD GAL PAL OF GRACIES. THEY ARE ANGELS TOGETHER. AND THEY LET ME TAG ALONG SOMETIMES, TOO! SHE HAS HER OWN TREE HOUSE WITH HER HUBBY O.J. IT'S SO COOL! ANYTHING IS PAWSIBLE ON THE PINTO AS WE CALL IT. IF YOU LOOK IN MY PHOTO GALLERY, ON THE 3RD ROW DOWN ON THE RIGHT, YOU CAN SEE THE AERIAL VIEW OF THE PINTO! WE HAVE "ZIPPY LINING" (SO NAMED FOR OUR RAMBUNCTIOUS TORTIE ZIPPY). WE HAVE TOURS SOMETIMES AND STEVE....AKA SQUEEVE (HE'S HALF SQUIRREL) SOMETIMES SETS UP HIS KISSING BOOTH. HE IS ALSO IN CHARGE OF THE BEACH BAR. WE HAVE K-TUCK AND SQUEEVE AS OUR CABANA BOYS. GRACIE MADE THEM CABANA BOYS DURING HER REIGN OF JULY 2012. SHE GAVE THEM EACH A GROOVY MOONPIE MOBILE (A WOODIE, SURF WAGON) AND THEY WILL WAIT ON ALL THE RESIDENTS PAW AND FOOT! WHEN WE HAVE FULL MOON PAWTIES, SPONGIE AND A.MALLOW ALWAYS STRING THE TWINKLY LIGHT HIGH UP IN THE COCONUT TREES. MALLOW FLIES THEM UP AND SPONGIE, WEARING HIS PAW CLIMBIN' BOOTS, HE STRINGS THEM. GRACIES BESTIE LILY, SHE DECORATES THE CATIO WITH MALLOW'S HELP. THE EVIE & MALLOW BAKERY ALWAYS SUPPLIES THE BEST BAKERY GOODS. ME AND POUNCER ALWAYS MAKE THE MOONPIES AND FOOD. K.MIKEY IS OUR GRILL MASTER. ANYONE WHO'D LIKE TO TAKE ON A DUTY THE NEXT TWO MONTHS FOR PAWTIES, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO JUST JUMP IN!

SO IN KEEPING WITH THE "PINTO" THEME, I THOUGHT I'D GIVE YOU A FUN LESSON ON THE HISTORY OF MY FAVORITE BEAN....YOU GOT IT, TOYOTA! THE PINTO BEAN!
NOT ONLY DO I LOOK LIKE IT, OR DOES IT LOOK LIKE ME?? WELL, PROBABLY THE FORMER SINCE THEY COME FROM A FLOWERING PLANT SOME 360 MILLION YEARS
AGO. I MAY BE OLD, BUT I AIN'T THAT OLD! THEY ARE INDIGINOUS TO OLD MEXICO AND THE GOOD OL' U.S. OF A. THEIR SPANISH NAME IS "POROTO FRUTILLA" WHICH
TRANSLATES INTO "STRAWBERRY BEAN"! NOW I KNEW I WAS KIND OF A STRAWBERRY BLONDE/ORANGE BOY, BUT I HAD NO IDEA ABOUT THIS NAME! IN BRAZIL
THEY ARE CALLED "FAIJAO CARIOCA" WHICH MEANS "CARIOCA BEAN". GOSH, I WONDER IF THEY DO KAREOKE?? MOL!! I SUPPOSE YOU ALL KNOW THE MOST
COMMON USE OF MY PINTO BEAN IS THE WONDERFUL BURRITO, OR ON THE SIDE FOR MEXICAN DISHES. BUT BEWARE, THEY CAN GIVE YOU.....UH.....WIND? YES,
WIND! BIG WIND! BE SURE TO STAND DOWN WIND! I DON'T KNOW IF THEY REALLY GET FRIED AGAIN....HENCE "REFRIED" BUT THEY SURE ARE DELICIOUS!

SPEAKING OF MEXICAN FOOD AND PINTO BEANS, GET YOUR SOMBREROS READY FOR THURSDAY, CINQO DE MAYO. MORE ON THAT TOMORROW.

OUR MOONPIE OF THE DAY IS KIWI STRAWBERRY CREME MOONPIE WITH STRAWBERRY SMOOTHIES. THE MOON TOON FOR TODAY IS "BY THE LIGHT OF THE SILVERY
MOON". THERE ARE NO CELEBRATIONS FOR A FEW DAYS BUT THE COTD IS.........POPPY & FIGARO #280158

HAVE A SUPER DUPER DAY! LUVYA A.ELMIE

A big Thank You from Angel Smokey
I could hardly believe it when I saw myself in the COTD window this morning, it’s a sight that not long ago we thought we might never see again! And now here I am, thanking you for my 6th COTD badge after a really rockin’ 30th birthday celebration yesterday. Why, I am floating on air!

The celebration continues today with more pawtying on my cloud. Angel PawPaw got me a great big piggy-shaped smoker and we’re going to try it out on some Rainbow Trout and of course, corn on the cob! And a big bag of Cheezies for everyone! Love you guys too! -- Angel Smokey

WOW! Thanks for the birthday greetings!
And for the super birthday song and all the goodies too! It is so hard to believe that it was 30 years ago when I began my earth life in that little barn on the Canada/US border. I had a wonderful long life with lots of love and I never get tired of celebrating that.

We’re having a great day, my special girl Angel PawPaw & I just got back from going frogging with Angels Jinx, Shadow and Jesse and I see that Angel Sandy and her sibs have set up some really fun looking games. Angel PawPaw surprised me with a 300 layer smokey blue crab moonpie crème cake with blue cheese frosting and there’s enough for everyone to have a piece. I’m going to get some corn on the cob started and you’re invited to join the barbecue! ~~ Angel Smokey

turned out to be a bit warmer
than they said it was gonna be here janet saw the temp hit 70 in the midday hour, then it went down to the lower to mid 60s where it was supposed to be. she and nat were gone till 1 had a quick lunch and just as janet was getting into email/fb he wanted to walk then and not after supper. guess what's killing her again this morning? yup, the back and hip on the lower right side and we guess you know what that means, RAIN!!! got between 11/2-2" due to start tonight and go through till sometime on monday and then stop and dry out till the end of the week with more showers on friday and again on sunday. janet's hours are supposed to be back up as of tomorrow, but her dept. boss told her before he flew out on vacation yester-day that it's more than likely that the "slasher" manager would likely chop them again just so he would get his end of the month bonus the idiot store managers and higher uppers are like that always have been and will be very greedy so and so's for sure! grrr!!! janet bought shallots, broccoli, thyme and sage yesterday. also the rickity falling apart bed frame was taken down and apart last night so janet's now on the rug with her boxspring/mattress and slept better too now that the mat-tress was moved around and well her feet were over the edge since it's a twin and she wants to get a frame, but not likely till next year and also needs a recliner as well as that's fal ling aprt thanks to master and before that aunt julia aj as janet called her. april is so laid back and easy going much like sandy and mouthie were so is happy with that and a long haired one to boot. :) see ya tues/wed for our weekly events and spread the word please. angels,ab,haley,april

we're on very limited time so to make
things short, jaent found out nat had gone out to do all the er-rands with his loopy cousin andy and called him to let him have a piece of her mind as she was waiting till mommy told her, so she called him and let him know in no uncertain words he should have called her to let her know so she could've have run her errands. she took herself off on a walk to let off a lot of steam and believe us this there was a lot of it! after getting home had lunch/did half of the online stuff, then got supper going scalloped potatoes/ham and plain for nat. she was then sitting outside starting the other half of the email/fb, but didn't get to far when nat came out and said let's go to the shelter as we've been matched with 2 kitties which janet had told them about earlier this week and off the went. turns out one was much like sandy as janet feels it was sandy who lead her to us and us to her. we now have a new lit-tle sister 1 year old and has the name of april as it was that or mae and well janet liked april and so did mommy beats daffie which is what she was going to be called after daf-fodils. she's part maine coon/american shorthair. tiger/yellow/tan on top and underneath and all 4 feet white. hey sandy, you did us proud as she's so laid back and easy going like you were it was worth the wait! sun to clouds yes-terday from that storm going south of us, and clearing now through tomorrow with partly cloudy skies and lower to mid 60s. clouding up tomorrow night with showers to rain sun-mon morning and lower 50s, then upper 60s to lower 70s and more showers tues night into wed morning. please help us out by spreading the word sleepover and sports days start weekly on tues/wed next week through october. angels,ab,haley

janet's got her windows opened up wide
as we're sitting at 60 here this morning and foggy conditions. don't know how fast it'll burn off, but we'll be into the upper 60s with afternoon sunshine and then down to the lower to mid 30s tomorrow morning so back to what we were getting last week before it finally warmed up to shorts weather yesterday and the day before. janet even has started to take walks again and since her back was killing her the past 3 days she had to walk two of them and her ankle was bothering her the other morning so no walk! she's between the sink work lately which she likes more than the melon bar cutting fruit which she's only done twice this week for a change of pace and unless a special order comes through like last week, will be doing sink work today, but back to the melon bar tomorrow un-less they have two people working as that's the only day she and the other girl can get a 5 hour shift! we hit the lower 80s here for the first time yesterday and man was it humid. just when janet was going outside to sit for a while doing on line stuff showers started to move in and then late afternoon when she settled in her recliner (she's got to get a new one this one is falling apart) so will wait till august when the big tax free weekend and seems everybody else will be out un-less some spots have the sale before hand which some do and some don't. she's got to also see about the route so she knows how to take it and see if there's another way of getting there which might be shorter too on the other side of spring-field now for the bus tour she's booked for early august with AAA as if she pays then cancels before the cut off date she will get a refund but doesn't know if it'll be a full one or not. also cancelled her planned vacation and in it's place that bus day trip as well as two shopping trips to return things she's worn out with llbean in ct and then to some new outlets as that's the closest or going the back way down to wrentham on the south shore for the shoe store, otherwise southeastern nh is the closest she would rather go to seeing it's a new outlet complex. so the $$$ she's saving up will build up as she's trying to save a little each week to put in no matter how much it is.
she wants nat to go with her on one of them as it would be down to return things and come back again, but at least show him where his great-great-great aunt nellie and great grand-mother and her family lived when she was growing up next to the cong. church in ellington, ct.
janet's planning on finishing up the weeding she hopes today or tomorrow and start the planting of peas, lettuce, carrots and a few other things, but the broccoli, sage and a few other things will just have to wait a bit longer. weather wise temps look to be 60s most of next week with 40s/50s on tues/wed locals are saying so we'll wait and see if they're right or twc! angels,ab,haley

Hi AQ Duchess & Angel sibs
Thank you for coming by to celebrate my COTD on the 20th. I'd hoped to fly by to thank you yesterday but thunderstorms most of the day prevented mom from helping me.
Thank you for the wonderful gifts, the delicious goodies & most of all for being here to share my special day with me. I'm leaving you a goodie bag from my pawty that's filled with catnip energy bars & some beautiful butterflies for you to chase. Thanks again for helping me celebrate winning COTD!

Thanks A Q Duchess & Family
Thank you for remembering my beautiful MerryBelle on her one-year Angelversary. Some days it seems like only yesterday when we said goodbye, while other times it seems like furever that she was here with us. Casper Todd & I still miss her very much. MerryBelle was a special part of our family & she will always have a special place in my heart.

“They are gone from our sight. . .
but never our memory,
Gone from our hearing. . .
but never our hearts,
Gone from our touch. . .
but their presence is felt
And the love that they gave us never departs.”

Hugs & Love,
Mommy Angela

Thank you for crossing anniversary day visit
It was wonderful seeing so many of my dear CC furiends coming by to honor my 8th crossing anniversary yesterday. Thank you for the beautiful flower bouquets, balloons & the love you shared with me in remembrance of my life. I never expected to be in the COTD window again since CC has had so many issues, so it's pawtastic to see my furry face in the place of honor today because of all the votes you left for me. I'll be flying by to thank the kitties that are coming by to celebrate my being COTD later in the week since I wanted to make sure to get my crossing anniversary thank you meows done first. Nothing like keeping a fairly quiet angel busy for once...MOL!

I may have had a short life but the time I had with my furever family was purrfect. If it weren't for mom tracking me down when my furmom Sassy starting yowling at the door on that cold October night in 2008, I would have frozen to death like my other siblings. At the tender age of 3 weeks I began my inside life with surrogate furpawents Zaboo & Patches. They taught me everything I needed to know, kept me clean & loved me as if I were their own kit. The love I received from them, my humans, & all of my CC furiends will always be special & I'm thankful that I had the time I did with everyone. Thank you again for coming by yesterday to honor my crossing dear furiends!

Thank you for pouncing by my cloud to help me celebrate my birthday beloved furiend! I adored seeing you & hearing you sing to me on my special day. I also loved the cream cheese-filled catnip cookies, dozen peacock feathers & furry catnip-filled mousey you left for me.
Leaving you a goodie bag with a miniature angel food cake & a pint of vanilla mice cream inside, along with an vote sprinkled with angel dust.
Thanks again for coming by to share my birthday with me!

Loving purrs,

janet's up early
to see how much blogging she can get done as she resumed her walking yesterday and even took down the older fence and rolled it up and took out the poles and moved them so is ready to put the fence up all done yesterday without nat as he did say he might help, but is now refusing to do anything with gardening at all. so once janet gets the fence up she can get to the weeding which is easy as well as later on moving the leaves off of the older herb garden and putting in flower seeds unless she's plan-ning on dragging out more rocks to be used as edging along the flower gardens on the south side as well as out front, as there is still one flower garden which has to be dug up, but that's not going to get done till after the bulbs have died off as you can't dig daffies till the leaves start to die back and there were hardly any blossoms this year due to the mild winter we had.
this morning janet's gotta drive mommy and nat is going to be with her just till she gets called in then he's going to walgreens to see what they might have for pokemon stuff and janet will go directly to the garage to get her car's oil changed and filter for $19.95. after that visit is over not straight home as mommy wanted, but down to wally world as nat wants to go there and janet to big lots just to check things out. this afternoon it's the fence and maybe a walk somewhere depends if janet feels she wants to sit in her recliner when it's so nice outside. tomorrow it's bank run, wally world, aldis and ??? if there's another stop or not depends as nat would say. twc says we're sitting at 30 and janet's not bothered to go out and look as she's sitting here blogging away. locals are saying a chance of showers late monday into tuesday morning and twc isn't saying much of anything till friday at the earliest so a nice dry spell for a change. temps will be mostly 60s and two days into the 70s sunday and monday so if janet does her wash she might do it this weekend or wait till there's enough in her basket to do it. if not then she's planning on sitting outside and enjoying the sun and shade of the spruce tree out front or the pine trees on the north side of the garage. got errands likely monday as next wed janet will have to get mommy up at 6 so they can make the 7am or 8am blood work at the hospital facility they have for urgent care and you get mamogram and such there too so her insurance should cover it there done. that's before they have their checks that same morning and are supposed to have the blood work done before they go, well this is before they go, but trouble is there's not been time to do it before next week, so not much her doctor can do except to contact them if they want to see them again. the following wed am it's janet's turn for the dentist and she's lined somebody up maybe to drive mommy the dentist as it's her turn the 11th of next month. angels,ab,haley

with janet not feeling good again
this morning she's rushing to get stuff done here so she can move right along with both fb pages. got showers to SNOW tonight into tomorrow morning and not supposed to stick to the roads here but grassy surfaces only, a coating to 2" at the max. more snow coming in on monday during the day more of the same and not a big deal with this one either. once past that it's just the stupid cold and warming to the 40s on wed. with sunshine when janet is hoping to get out and walk depends on her outer right ankle which for some reason is swollen while the rest of her foot is normal and not bothering her at all! she hopes it doesn't continue and goes down, but with her on her feet all the time kind of impossible as shes gotta work and well the outside work that now likely will wait with the cold she says shes not doing much more than going to/from work and then errands if they are doing them on monday. she felt nasty for a part of the morning, but the headache/pressure went away as the day warmed to the 70s here, just the nasty wind made it feel colder that it was due that it was off the ocean to the southeast of here. she's planning on the middle west. st. block to walk on wed., but again depends on that outer right ankle as it's swollen some, if not sticking locally like the lower middle st. block which is fine by her. angels,ab,haley

Hi AQ Duchess
Happy birthday to Dad! You know, our family does that too when they go out. Not fair!
We are back down into the 40's. Mom is so tired of the flip flopping. Tomorrow is April, for Pete's sake, MOL! She's ready to have the windows open, now that she has three that do. The ceiling fan is up. They found someone to do it and the higher kitchen lights were put in as well. The previous owners had chandelier style lighting in the kitchen and the nephew kept walking into them, MOL.
Hehee...we would prefer a nice cozy stack of freshly dried shirts. :)
We hope that the intestinal and skin issues are improving.
Aww....sorry Dad can't make it tomorrow night. :(
Love,
Sakura, Sienna and Sable

Hi AQ Duchess
Hehe...Mom has enough with Sable most of the time and then Sienna decided to join in too. Then after she got her laundry folded, she left to answer the phone and when she got back, Sienna was comfortably perched on her tshirts, MOL. Mom apologized for taking her bed but she had to put them away.
The garage still smells of it a bit but it's not as strong now. They got rid of a lot of boxes and recyclables at the recycling center so it looks more spacious now.
It sounds like your mom will have a really nice time on Furiday night. :)
Yes, we do need to visit with our furiends here. Don't worry, Mom has changed her whole schedule since moving to the new house so she's not up as long as she was at the other one. She's also up earlier, mainly because the girls wake her up for breakfast promptly, if not earlier, at 8.
Well, I'll stop for now but stop by when you have the time. :)

Hi AQ Duchess
That was quite a lunch we had at the Angel Cafe today! Yesterday Mom grilled out even though it was only 47 and raining. She did it in the garage with the door open. The garage still reeked of it so they kept the door partially open to try to air it out.
Yes, Sable is nearly grown but is still very kittenish in behavior. She loves to help make the bed. She is named quite aptly since in the light, there is a brown undertone in her black fur.
Your mom will like the movie a lot. It's a great lesson in faith and prayer.
We hope that the medicine works great so there is no more intestinal issues. Mom read in Puppy Love (? Name) (a free issue that came with her Catster) that coconut oil helps the skin. Ask your vet about it. It might help with the red spots.
Love,
Sakura, Sienna and Sable

Hi AQ Duchess
Long time, no mew! How have things been with your family? Sable and Sienna get along pretty well now. Sometimes there are sisterly squabbles but that's to be expected, MOL. Sable will soon be 10 months old and she has really grown. She loves playing in the sink and surfing the counters for food. Sienna is the lover. Mom is "her" person so she follows her everywhere when Mom is home and gets upset when she isn't.
Mom finally had time to watch a movie the other day. She saw The War Room and says it's really good! She is making a list of the newer movies coming out so she can get them, like Miracles From Heaven and Young Messiah.
Her sister and family will be coming tomorrow. They're planning a cook out even if it rains. Mom says she'll just do it in the garage with the door open, MOL!
Hope you have a happy Easter!
Love,
Sakura, Sienna and Sable

happy easter!
janet's not feeling great this morning all bloated/gassed up from a sandwhich/supper shepherd's pie last night and her stomach is growling and well she's going to make a run in a little while too. got nice weather as we struggled to get out of the soupy conditions and 40s yesterday and finally in the afternoon made the lower 50s! she did leave at her regular time of 10 scheduled till and did a bank run, then grocery shopping and picking up take out from panera which was good, but gassed her up like supper last night so right now she's not feeling to good, but is planning on going to work regardless can't afford not to!
she's sleeping a bit later tomorrow morning to get up at 5;30 and walking to/from sunrise service outback of their church as it's going to be a nice weekend 50s today and lower 60s tomor-row, so the sunrise should be nice even though it's going to cloud up with more rain tomorrow night into monday and more thursday afternoon into friday. looks like old man winter might be paying us another visit sun/mon with a sinker and 40s so here we go again! sick of the same broken record lately 40s and soupy or wet, but sure beats the sinker stuff they're saying for sun/mon first week like the last two years in april
janet's got fruit to marinate in honey and make a cherry cheesecake and put the baskets together which usually is done. at least the veggies are done as of yesterday. see ya early monday morning. angels,ab,haley

got a lot going on today through next wednesday
in this neck of the woods as janet's trying to see if she can make it through the blogging since there's just a few more left on this page as some don't change and some do so we caught them from the other page which she just finished up. she was out not long after 6 walking and waited till almost 8 to wake nat up and he's ready to roll almost to go to his 6 month cleaning/check with his dentist as they leave here around 9:25 which doesn't give her much time to get things finished seeing most blogs are longer than usual as there's a lot to say!
she walked bright and early with pepper, did some blogging be-fore and has been pounding the keys since that time. it's clouded up as we will be lower 60s here today going to showers through tonight maybe tomorrow morning colder with highs into the mid to upper 40s as a backdoor cold front is moving south then will move north tomorrow night with rain into friday am.
the afternoon will be sunny through sunday afternoon clouding up with showers/boomers through tuesday and again on friday with highs between 50s and lower to mid 60s the entire time all next week! :) janet's going to buy some balloons to re-lease either friday or saturday on her way home from work to let master, aj, her grandparents and the kitties know she's thinking of them and missing them. did she tell you she saw sandy's image again in the clouds and a rainbow shortly after that? means they both are very happy there and are watching out for her and the other two in this house as well...she still gets teary eyed and cries when she mentions it, but is getting better each time she talks and gets it out in the open
meals planned are anglo-american shepherd's pie for the next 3 nights and finishing goulash (tomato/hamburg/pasta) tonight and freezing what is leftover to add to it when she has it again next month. she's planning on walking to sunrise service and home again via middle street/conservation area as well and a breakfast cookin of marinated fruit/sausages/waffles/toast/juice/milk and then lunch of baked ham, mashed potatoes, rolls, peas and either succotash or lima beans, juice/milk/water then cherry cheesecake and the following nights leftovers from easter. she's working the next 3 days seeing the salad bar/melon bar are all closed and it's UNPAID off like it is once a year. angels,ab,haley

happy st. patrick's day!
here's what went on yesterday. first janet walked pepper early and blogged before/after then had breakfast after she had woke nat up and gotten mommy going and up as well. blogged till it wa time to leave the house around 8am and had mommy there at the doctor's office and the visit was great! she is being weaned off gradually of prenisone as well as sounding much better so she won't have to go back till the 30th!!! once home janet was online blogging till early afternoon then finished one email/fb page and nat wanted to walk so off they did the big block. then janet called about booking into the same motel she and nat have stayed at in the past and found $89 for the first night and $79 for the additional nights so booked in june 25-29 and after she gets home she and nat are off to either the berkshires to the outlets or vermont both are 1/2 day trips so they won't be leaving mommy/pepper here alone for more than the morning to early afternoon. the weather was nice as it cleared off started at 46 and went to 65 then clouded up and still was warm enough to walk after supper last night heard the first of the spring peepers and this morning same temp going to the lower 60s, but have had downpours since 8 on/off last night and boomers coming in this afternoon. got errands to run after work as janet told them she can't stay to day, but can tomorrow, sat, sun not mon, but tues/thurs-sat next week. got a chance at snow on sun night into mon with a big late winter/early spring nor'easter too! hoping it stays to the south and we only get 1" or nothing! angels,ab,haley

~...~♥~...>*<...~♥~ MYSTREE-GRE' KNIGHT ~♥~...>*<...~♥~...~

♥ Hello Dear Friends; Mom~Lillian here to say Thank You for your Condolences & Sympathies on the Forever Sleep of our handsome MYSTREE-GRE' which was on Thursday, March 3, 2016.

♥ I'm so sorry for being late to Thank You All, but dealing with his tragic Hit & Run death is hard. I tried to do the write up a few days back, but my heart was telling me not now!

♥ MYSTREE-GRE' loved being groomed and petted. He also loved to go up to doggie Wilbur to head butt him when Dad Ron took Wilbur on his walks. MYSTREE-GRE' also did the same to the neighbor man's Boxer doggie!

♥ I received a call from The Veterinary Hospital late last Friday as MYSTREE-GRE'S ashes was ready to pick up so I went there the following morning to bring him back home and on the mantle of my desk for his final resting place. I also have his paw prints on a plaque.

♥ Thank You for the wonderful cards, gifts as well for the sweet messages.

Here's a Knight Gang vote in the Name & Honor of MYSTREE-GRE'.

Kitty Kisses & Loving Hugs,

♥ MYSTREE-GRE' KNIGHT #2921 & MOM-LILLIAN

♥ Now, I Thank You All for coming to Honor TAUMKAT on Monday, March 7, 2016 for his Forever Sleep Anniversary of 3 Years!

♥ Thank You for the sweet messages, Flowers, Piñatas, Balloons & Gifts!

♥ TAUMKAT was a Survivor of many cat fights and whatever else abuse he had unknown to us! He also survived from escaping the First Avenue Shelter where I took him to be vaccinated in preparation to find a home for him. The vet said he couldn't get out of the room, but proved her wrong when he climbed his way to the ceiling and thru their opened attic. I tried to find him, but no luck! I came home and felt so bad for him. Two days later, I went out back to feed the kitties and there was the escapee.... TAUMKAT! What a shock and surprise as he had to cross a major street and lots of traffic to come back so he lived here til his Forever Sleep!

Here's a Knight Gang vote in the Name & Honor of TAUMKAT.

Kitty Kisses & Loving Hugs,

here it is late morning already and janet's
just getting into blogging and will likely go through other pages to reach out to a few more who might still be here seeing a lot are now on youpet, but janet says she won't migrate there till this goes down for good! she was up after 5 did a little blogging and wanted to get out of the house by 5:20, but didn't make it till 5:35 and was off around lower west street which she was aiming for last week, but didn't get there, oh well it's down and done now till the fall months as it'll be to warm by the time she gets the middle and upper west st. blocks done as well seeing she's been into the belchertown almost but not quite block there. she got back around 7:20, took pepper out and changed her shoes, was drag-ging 10 large sheet fulls of leaves most of them heavy and wet from the upper north flower garden around the sugar maple tree near the street. with that she just had two light weight loads from out front and was DONE!! mommy and nat were just having breakfast and now mommy's got two doctor's appt.s in two days, one tomorrow middle of the afternoon which means she will have to do what she can once they are in from errands after she's out of work seeing there's 2 banks, a few stores, staples and one or two other stops before they get home again. she had breakfast and was proceeding with blogging, but was looking into bus day trips and is taking one she's done before, but half of the stop she's not done before so she booked it seeing they aren't charging an arm and a leg like two other compan-ies she's used before which most are over $125 or more!! ouch!
this one it was a toss up between some outlets/lego discovery center outside of boston on the south shore, or the erie canal and well she wanted to go out of state so is doing so and now won't have to drive herself! :) she also wants to get more stuff done outside, but it's going to be a bit on the warm side into the 70s today only, so will instead take it easy and sit outside doing online stuff between getting picked up and going to get her car as she's got to pay for it as well. she also bought some summer sausage from hickory farms, a pair of crocs for nat seeing his are just about shot, and then new track shoes from saucony seeing she didn't have any shoes like those to wear as the last pair cribbed her toes and she said that was it!!! tomorrow as she said errands, rain in the afternoon/night into the 60s. then after that friday nice into the 50s and the upcoming weekend 60s then 50s/60s most of all of next week with rain monday/showers tuesday morning as well as friday next week. so all in all a nice week for college kids to have their spring break. nat's got some raking lined up next door and janet's going to see about how much it'll cost her for some fencing not as big as half of it, but the same size as what the chicken wire fence was and some black plastic which has to be put down as well. she'll do that after work on friday before she gets home at the farmers supply uptown as i

janet wasn't going to blog
at all, but now seems they fixed what went down sometime friday night as she tried to get in when she got home from work, it was still down and then a half hour ago and still down and just now and it's up so we're at it, but won't make the blogs very long. we were at 26 the past two mornings and 28 this morning so it warmed up a bit more than the 30s of the past two days and now is into the mid 40s, feels much nicer. work was a mess yesterday for sure, janet had a lot to throw out and start again plus doing the samples and taking down the out of code. she also made up the hours for friday which she had off as well as thursday. oh, mommy's visit to the eye sur-geon was great and her visit is now 6 months away in green-field not springfield which she had been asking for ever since she found out he was seeing patients up there. well we got the first slot for september 30 8am!! on the way home they stopped in at ocean state job lot and got a few things mainly for birthday gifts for nat 6 pairs of wool socks and and a short sleeved shirt to go with the 3 shirts janet got a few weeks ago on jcp.com. he's gotten them and is very happy with all of them! we're going to be into the 50s tomorrow thurs-weekend as the temps have been cooled off from the 60s on tues day and 70 on wednesday. janet's car goes to the garage on tuesday after work to get new front brakes/calipers. they'll give her a ride home and and pick her up on wednesday when it's ready. tomorrow a few errands, get milk, gas, and a bank run to put in her fed refund in so she can pay the full amount. angels,ab,haley

hi aq duchess and fam
we back. hhheeee momma had to leave for a minute for hugs and kissy kiss from daddy just home from work

well we didn't have a blogger for hockey or the coronation as momma was at gma's sounds like wouldn't have mattered if we had.

is sprinkle rain here in ga today and weather hoomans are saying we will have possible strong storms 8-9 pm tonite. hope they wrong. wind is getting up already tho

momma got up at gma's sunday morn with her left ear hurting. it has been rough on her along with her back and all. and her sinuses are giving her trouble too. momma feels the ear problem is probably coming from her sinus as there is no discharge or anything from her ear to indicate an infection. is still hurting today but not as bad. she had some ear drops from last season with pain meds in them, so she been using them and seems to help. momma said using them from the onset could save a tri to the dr and seems she be right smart momma!!!

we missed getting to be at hockey and seeing friends

have a great evening

The 29th of February has come and they will be pryin’ the crown outta my claws … I mean (ahem) I will be graciously passin’ the crown to my worthy successor Quincy tonight at 5 p.m. Pacific time, 8 p.m. Eastern on the Cats Meow Resort page #271826

I’ve stocked up on flea spray and have the dungeon waitin’ for any CC Gremlins that might try to show up and give us any guff. I run a TIGHT (beer can) ship around here, mol.

A special thank you as well to K. Whiskers and his Mom for the rockin’ picture that I have put back up as my profile picture.

Tomorrow Prince OJ & I are headin’ off on a well-earned retirement to the French Riviera, we’re gonna take our Harleys along to ride those awesome roads, between stretches of layin’ around on the beach. As for the blogger, she’s got some projects around the house that she’s gonna need to get started on soon.

almost sounds something like some of our weekdays
like today after janet's home from work. let's see if they ask her to stay the extra hour anytime this week or not as of right now she's lost 2 days with cut in hours and then they took an-other day away from her too. how is the melon bar to be kept full and then her dept. boss not get yelled as or the store man-ager, but then again we don't care about the store manager to much as it's janet's immediate boss who would bear the brunt again. not our fault but the higher uppers who think plan A for cutting all the part timer hours in the store is the thing to solve their money problems, but other managers hit on some of those big wigs at a retirement party the other night and laid into them bigtime about the melon bar and other things which again won't get done due to the shorter shifts and what not. only so much you can do that's for sure! no extra help and by the time janet finishes it'll be just about clean up time and time to punch out to come home which won't allow for any extra cutting of fruit to help get things rolling to put together for the melon bar like we had extra help yesterday and saturday as well.
oh well janet got the edge of the lawn nearest to the street raked as well as some of the flower beds with just bulbs did the leaves and will have to later pick them up and move them to where they're going to be used to keep weeds down in the new flower garden where the herbs used to be for 30+ years in the upper garden. she also picked up/broke up and put into a box all the branches which had come down mainly finishing the north side of the garage so now she's got 2 big boxes of sticks ready to roll for grilling season which we hope isn't to far away. got late morning/early afternoon showers just in time for those errands and janet's walk between that time then clearing for the afternoon and she is hoping to walk as tonight it's easy chicken patties southern style, either mash-ed potato or fries likely fries and a veggie of some sort! the tacos weren't a special hit, but something just very different janet just had two and mommy one as she didn't care for it to much even the mildest sauce is to spicy for her she said, so janet turned a third one into a taco salad minus the taco shells just lettuce/tomato/hamburger with the sauce/seasonings and last night open faced hot french roast beef sandwiches minus the bread. oh we started at 33 yesterday and got to 57 and today it's already 44 and going to be lower to mid 50s again like tomorrow should be. wed it's rain to snow and colder mid to upper 30s thurs/fri and 40s again after that with ice to rain on monday another sinker stinker! angels,ab, haley

janet's behind this morning and
still has that ocular migraine as it went after she got to work yesterday as she was kept jumping but moved right along too! one girl called in sick as the flu is really going around especially the colleges and schools, then the other had to leave early as her daughter got sick at daycare so she wasn't able to come back so janet got asked to stay, and she said she already had plans which as true as she and nat did the banking, wally world/aldi's and her store for the first half of the grocery shopping and the second half is today after work. she already told them she could not stay thurs/fri due to errands/shopping which comes before staying to help them out! let them fend for themseleves as they were already short on help and likely will be today again if her friend's daugh-ter is still sick this morning! she can stay tomorrow-monday but not tuesday or thursday seeing she's changing days off wed will be working instead of thurs, so that means 7 days straight of working and then a day off. she's done 11 straight before too!from one week to the next as she asked for a sat off and that means you work one week through to fri to the next before she's had it off, but in the past.
we were 67 when she left for work 50s when she got home and 40s when she and nat finished the first half of grocery shop-ping and more showers when they got home so their first walk was 1;30 and then more showers around suppertime both periods lasting only 1 hour about. today it's 34 right around the high for the day and the winds as the front came in from the southwest will only be cold through tomorrow morning as we'll make the lower 40s tomorrow then 50s sunday-wednesday next week ending in rain there and 30s on thurs/fri next week. angels,ab,haley

❀ Mews from Mallow Castle ❀
Oh, gee, I have been so busy that I almost forgot one of my very favourite holidays! Yesterday was Inconvenience Yourself Day. But I remembered in time to celebrate.

First of all, to start things off right, on Tuesday night I put my alarm clock in the bathroom and locked the door. When it went off in the mornin’ not only did I have to pick the lock with a knittin’ needle (which I had to find first, it’s not like I knit or anything ~ as IF!) to get to the (ahem!) facilities, the stupid alarm was playing “Who Let the Dogs Out? Woof, woof woof woof woof!” full blast the whole time!

Then it was time for my mornin’ shower. Plannin’ ahead, I had turned off the water heater Tuesday mornin’ and hadda wait for it to heat back up. Apologies to those guests of Mallow Castle who might also have been inconvenienced by this one … guess I shoulda posted a warning sign or two, huh?

Then I headed off to my mornin’ golf game but first I hadda unthaw my Harley key, which I froze in a block of ice Tuesday night before retiring. I hadda wonder if I’d even make it to the golf course because I siphoned about, oh … 4.8 gallons of gas from my 5 gallon tank. Yuck! Ptoooie! And of course, I wasn’t carryin’ any spare gas OR my wallet with me! Do I know how to celebrate or what?!

Then it was time to get to work with Prince OJ on our beer can boat. Of course, I hadda blindfold myself first. And mix up the tools!

Then I finished out the day at home watching TV! Of course, because it was still Inconvenience Yourself Day, I had asked Prince O.J. to hide the remote so every time I wanted to flip the channel I hadda get up and do it the cavecat way! Then I finished out this very special day by climbing into my cozy soft bed, which I had of course inconveniently short-sheeted when I made it in the morning.

See why this is one of my favourite holidays of the year?

** IN OTHER NEWS, I will be passin’ the crown to our next COTM Quincy on Monday, Feb 29th at 5 p.m. Pacific, 8 p.m. Eastern on the Cats Meow Resort page #271826 **
