About Me

Active within 1 Day

Hi! My name is Gracie Twinkle-toes. ..winky-winky

I am Domestic Shorthair from Oxford, NY

Nicknames: Twinkee.
Favorite right now is HUNEEE (I an mom's honey-pie)--Whe- n I was younger it was "Lizzie Wiggle-Bottom" because of how cute I look from behind! BUT I don't answer to any unless I feel like it.

Age: 5 years old

Gender: F

Coat: short haired

Education: She has 6-7 toes on each paw. A tiny thumb on top of her big thumbs. Even at 4 months old she could hold a teaspoon with wet cat food on it between her thumb and toes. She could turn it over to lick food on the other side. Use of tools at 4 months= high feline I.Q.

My favorite tricks and treats are: Gracie T-t has shown an early interest in research into the natural sciences. Her first experiments were into the source of water. Recently it has been the healing power of SMOOCHES. In summer it was the nature of flight in insects. She seems to eat all of her subjects before her studies are complete though. During winter she conducted a Sleep study-- you can see her on her Research Only page.
She's know as the Little Snot by the other cats.
She has a little 'attitude' and says to the other cats
"I'm smarter than anyone else in the house-- feline or human." and
Party mix

Where I hang out: outside in spring, summer, fall

My favorite grubs:

My pet peeves: Too much rough rubbing

What I love about my owners: She let's me know that every day is wonderful and I am very good, even when I'm bad.

My cat hobbies: "Spa" time on the shower mat. Getting brushed on all sides.

Pet motto: "I AM BEAUTIFUL."
I am always dressed up in my tuxedo wearing a fluffy, lacy bib, and white gloves on all of my fingers -- from the tips of my toes and thumbs:

Here's how I found my mom and the Budd's house
Dona from the Little Mews Cat Rescue & Foundling Home in our village brought me to my new home when I was 4 months old. It was love at first cuddle, but I still slept in the cat carrier for a few nights...
Early in 2012 after taking three family votes ( PD Bud resisted and wanted me to be sent back to the Foundling Home), I was finally voted into the Budd family, to be furever known as Gracie Twinkle-toes Budd . And that is how I became the owner of this family.

❀ Mews from Mallow Castle ❀
Happy Mardi Gras! As you can see by my profile picture, my handsome Mardi Gras King & I are ready to celebrate. We’re gonna dress up in our feathers & beads and take in the parade from the best vantage point there is, and then we’ll have an sumptuous banquet prepared by today’s Guest Chef, Prince Oscar Jon himself! As some of you already know, Prince O.J. is an accomplished chef who has served many of our CC Royals over the years. I’ll let him set the stage for today’s banquet:

~~~~~

Oscar Jon can't help remembering the journey to this pawty...the supreme pawty; the one he's cooking for his Queen Angel Mallow. It all began with a slide down the castle stairway. Little did O.J. know when the then, Miss Mallow, landed in a flop on his tummy that love would bloom between he, the tubby Maine Coon from Missouri, and she, the beautiful and adventurous Siberian from British Columbia. Now, he gets to help with the Mardi Gras meal for all the cats and kitties that can crowd into the Castle Hall (& believe O.J., it's a huge place for a Cajun spread). Shipped in by special barge and a tug boat, only the freshest of ingredients will do. Steve, Tucker, Spanky Jack, Casper & Hedley are wearing their "chef" aprons and soon the meal will commence.

Shrimp Creole
Buffalo Shrimp
Alligator Meatballs
Collard Greens
Fried Okra
Oven Baked Jambalaya
Cajun Style Baked Sweet Potatoes
Dirty Rice
Red Beans & Rice

For dessert; A Mardi Gras Colorful King Cake and Sweet Powdered Beignets

Drinks on the House: Southern Sweet Tea, Fresh Lemonade, Sparkling Water or Hot Steaming Coffee

Ah, but what about those cats hanging around back in the "still" area where the nights are cool and the band plays on...use your imagination my friends. They also will enjoy a tasty banquet more to their rowdy palate. A thick rich roux of swamp rat and crawfish, finger bites of liver rolled in (oops better keep that a secret) a rich shrimp pasta dish and Dunkin Donuts for all. Drinks come from a spigot or barrel -- with the band playing "When the Saints Go Marching In."

~~~~~

Oh boy, I hear that Dixieland Jazz band startin’ up already! I am grabbin’ my beads and headin’ over to liberate my Maine Man from the kitchen for a dance or two .. or three …

Hi Gracie Twinkle Toes
JC is still in the hospital. Mom knew what was happening when he was straining in the litter pan with no results. He was catheterized yesterday, but is filling up again. Don't know what is happening. Mimi

Monday recap
Happy Chinese New Year!!! Year of the monkey,what could be more fun than a barrel of monkeys,right?Its also laugh and get rich day-so I hope the monkeys got their "A" game on. Everyone watch the super Bowl yesterday? That explains the lethargy and the scores.

Luvbug (38)monkeys around with a kite flying opera. Interesting.

Mallow (40) is speaking in tongues today (at least she is still speaking,and strangely,we understand her),and she creates random acts of vandalism with her golf ball. So little,yet so fierce.

I score a 36. Let me tell you-laughing yourself rich does NOT work-the bank account is still lacking in the negative way.

Engine dresses head to tail in 28 layers of fur-warming her paws over the chipmunk Cheerios with warm catnip cream(at least its not mulled monkey)

The Angels are getting ready for an early Easter with a 25. After the Nor leaves that is.

Tuck packs up his little 36,and heads his lonely self to the drink wagon. You're never alone when its you,Jack Daniels,and chipmunk Cheerios

Mudcat (37) hold the bus!!! Some not so good news from the Southern front. JC is in the vetspital with a urinary blockage. Its no laughing matter-sending get well wishes his way.

GTt (24) sends out invites out lunch with the monkeys compliments of Engine. No wonder your inviting everyone. No,monkey is not on the menu.

BG 924) pawtied to hardy at the SB yesterday-even old gum,and the opera is looking good to her. An opera performed by Asian New Year monkeys-I like it!

Scores:
1st with matching 24's BG and GTt.
2nd with 25 is The Angels
3rd with 28 is Engine

Losers: Mallow with 40,and Luvbug with 38. teach her to talk well,can ya Luvbug?

XOXO~S~

Hi Sweet Gracie T-t!
We’re having spring-like weather this week with temps in the high 70’s. Not good news for the drought, but it’s hard not to enjoy it. Mom took Callie and me on our stroller walk this morning where we fed the ducks and birds and filled up the water bucket. The creek is still flowing, but if the weather stays this way, it won’t be for long. We hope the ducks have somewhere else to swim.:(

Thanks for the well wishes for me dear furiend. I'm going to need to have surgery done on my bladder next week to finally put an end to to this pesky UTI. My Mom seems more worried than I am right now. You know how Moms are!

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

❀ Mews from Mallow Castle ❀
It’s a quiet day around Mallow Castle. Outside in the sunshine Greenskeeper Mimi is finishin’ up the orchid vines that she has been plantin’ around the front of the Castle and Official ‘Nip Grower Kuzi is tending her patch of her very special variety, Mallow Yallow. Out back Prince OJ is tendin’ his still and K. Bennie is supervisin’ the giant shed that is quickly fillin’ up with empty beer cans for that special project I alluded to yesterday. Not much better time than Superbowl Sunday to start a beer can collection!

The rest of the family are getting settled in nicely. My little sis Mojo & her pal Zippy are enjoyin’ the Moj’s canopy bed .. those crazy kids are absolutely convinced it’s a bunk bed with a kitty hammock! Kitchen Manager Evie has everything organized and now that she’s got all the Superbowl dishes done, she has time to double – check her list of Guest Chefs and then have some quiet time with her hubby Angel Shai.

I am loungin’ around in the black & white striped PJ’s that the Hairballz brought me in honour of the Kitty Convict Project (and my crown of course), checkin’ thorough the week’s itinerary.

Tomorrow is Mardi Gras, and my Mardi Gras King (and Guest Chef) & I have a celebration ready for ya. And don’t worry, I didn’t forget Chinese New Year! But since they ain’t even havin’ the big parade in Vancouver till Sunday ~ and San Francisco’s is a whole week later ~ we’ll spread the pawties out a bit and celebrate it Friday. Evie reports that Guest Chefs Callie & Angel Maggie have a special feast planned for us.

Of course this all leads up to a major Valentine’s Day bash on Sunday the 14th, you’ll be hearin’ more about that later.

Today you’re invited to just hang out at Mallow Castle. Guest Chef Sammy has come by to check out the facilities and that has resulted in a couple of his famous chili crocks, so you can come & go & help yourselves.

Umm .. watch out for that obstruction at the main gates though. That is not a guard station, but K. Steve gettin’ his kissin’ booth set up for Valentine’s Day. Don’t say you weren’t warned, mol. ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Are ya ready for some football??!

After that exciting shoppin’ cart race, I am ready to relax & chill out with my pals in front of the big screen. The thrills, the action, the excitement of cheerin’ my team on. So whaddaya think, can Boomers Bobcats beat the Northshore Bengals?

Oh yeah … there are some human teams playin’ today too, aren’t there?

You’re all invited to Mallow Castle for Superbowl 50! We’re puttin’ the finishing touches on a big Snack Stadium, prominently featurin’ blue corn chips and sweet potato dip for those Broncos fans out there, Carolina Pulled Pork Frito Bites for the Panthers fans, and lotsa football shaped ‘mallows from the Evie & Mallow Bakery. There’s also Orange Crush Cream Pie and our trusty bartender will be makin’ delicious blue Panther-itas.

And of course what would Super Bowl Sunday be without pizza? Today’s Guest Chef is K. Winston of the famous Winston’s Pizzeria, and the delivery truck should be showin’ up any minute with lotsa that special Winstons magic for us! I of course have ordered my favourite double onion, double garlic feta special, and there’s an assortment of Philly Cheesesteak, Buffalo Wing and Seafood pizzas too. Not to mention lotsa Winston bread with assorted dips.

And of course we have beer! Please save your empties for a top-secret project that’s comin’ up soon. We’re gonna need lots, so after the game a bunch of us Angels are gonna head over to the stadium and collect all the cans we can get our paws on. That should be a good start, mol.

Now let’s get started! It’s almost time for the pre-pre-PRE-game show! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Crutch Rental Day 2-6-16
Or Lame Duck Day, whichever you prefer. Did you all bring your "adopted" gophers with you? Isn't that cute, how the stupid little rodents think we're "adopting" them? Aww. Almost makes me feel bad. Almost. But my mouth is watering at the thought of grilled gopher!

Luvbug(37/10) admires the lace curtains in the lobby as he breezes out to the library. Bringing A. Fang? ... Mallow(42/6) isn't holding back at the I scream bar. Ice cream, I mean. Although I wouldn't mind an I Scream Bar! ... Mimi(31/4) and I share the same opinion of gophers. The only good gopher is a chocolate covered frozen one on a stick. Because everything is better on a stick ... Steve(27/9) is a one-cat compliment club, but he's still taking contributions. If you don't have any catbucks, a compliment will do.

GTt(36/9) is requesting a score transfer. But - how can you transfer TOMORROW'S score to TODAY? Do you have a talent you aren't telling us about? ... Aw, Bee Gee(37/10) is taking her lame duck Tiny "Soupy" Tim to the library to entertain the little gophers in the parking lot. I think she really means "clubbing gophers with a crutch" but with her you never can tell ... And Tucker(29/11) is celebratin the fact that even though he got here late, he's at least in time for the I Scream special.

Lots of bad putts today. Any good ones?
1st- Mimi and her lacey golf cart, 4.
2nd - Mallow, 6. Screaming & dreaming.
3rd - Tie, Steve & GTt, dressed to the 9s.

And everybody else loses. Tucker, Bee Gee, and Luvbug, you guys will have to whiskey floats ready. I'd like some of that frozen yogurt in mine please.

~~~~Toby~~~~
GTt has suggested we have a once-a-month or
once-a-day, or week, or whatever, trophy. For golfer
of the week, or day, maybe month. Who knows. Any thoughts?

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

Hi Gracie!
Oh yes, the great grey hunter came back from shopping yesterday with a 10 pound package of chicken hind quarters. (The other place didn't have any more of the .49c chicken legs) But this is better anyway, with the thighs included. And it was only .59c a pound, so, not bad. It's STILL thawing in the sink! We have a huge soup pot that mom will cook it all up in later and then put in into containers and freeze portions. I have almost finished ALL my first batch she bought last week. I'll no doubt finish it sometime today.

Too bad those bones got burnt. I LOVE that gunky gelatinous jiggly wiggly stuff after it turns to "jello" in the fridge! And apparently so do my guts. I am actually having a few honest to goodness almost-poops! Mom doesn't expect I'll ever get exactly constipated. I've always had less-than-firm doo. But I'm making progress.

I, too, have always been the long, slender type. With long giraffe-ish looking legs! So mom will be happy if I can gain back another pound or so. But I HAVE been gaining some! All in all, mom is pretty encouraged. We like to encourage them, don't we?

FYI - mom has dropped rice entirely from the household, ever since she learned rice is high in arsenic, and brown rice is naturally higher in arsenic than white rice. It's no big loss. nobody here actually likes rice anyway, but mom had not known that about the arsenic.

www.consumerreports.org/cro/magazine/2015/01/how-m- uch-arsenic-is-in-your-rice/index.htm

theconversation.com/high-levels-of-cancer-causing-- arsenic-in-rice-so-why-isnt-it-regulated-in-our-fo- od-33691

She HAD thought about soy milk, but she already knows soy isn't the best thing in the world for cats. So she's just keeping the kitten milk in reserve. She really only uses it when I go on one of my stubborn hunger strikes and quit eating for no apparent reason. The kitten milk has been the only thing that stimulates my appetite.

I usually do get the best napping spots, because I nap wherever I darn well please! Last night mom was baking a raspberry pie (just a frozen bake-&-serve one, so don't get excited) and I was sprawled out on top of the oh-so-warm stove! It was heaven! Mom lets me do whatever I want (almost) because she wants me to be content. So I'll feel better. This skinny thing has some real advantages!

Thurs recap
What does Liberace,stuffed mushroom,homemade soup and the USO have in common???? Nothing at all,but here we are,so lets see what we can do with it.

Luvbug (29)happily volunteered his services for drivers ed and cart saftey on the back 9 holes. They say a picture is worth a thousand words....

Mallow (41) is conducting mushroom stuffing for dummies class followed by how to putt fungus in 3 easy steps.

I score a 37 and honor my mentor-the great Liberace. Bling is the thing.

The Angels don't care about the fungus among us-they just enjoy their 59.

Mudcat (62) supports the USO and the troops with her patriotic pole dance.God bless America,and the freedom of dance.

Engine (54)shows us there is more ways than one to skin a rat. Gonna need more catnip wine for this demo.

GTt (40) prepares to amaze by "whacking her thingie". wow....

Tuck comes out of hiding from the thunder and snow lightening long enough to putt a 35. Me thinks he drinks,a lot.


BG (34)is sniffing from the same still as Tuck when she see's USO's in the Hazards.

Scores:
1st with 29 Luvbug
2nd with 34 BG
3rd with 35 Tuck

Losers: Mudcat with a patriotic 62,and The Angels with 59

2/3/16 - "♫ A long, long time ago .."
Yes, it’s The Day The Music Died, remembering the talents of Buddy Holly (BH), Richie Valens (RV) and The Big Bopper (BB) lost all too soon on this date 57 years ago. We will celebrate their memory by making their music the backdrop to our golf mayhem today. Great new picture, by the way!

Luvbug gets up “Early in the Morning (BH)” to putt a 28 (=10) and to set out the trays of carrot cake to celebrate the fact that it is also Carrot Cake Day today. After putting a 37 (=10). Mallow spies this delectable goodness and calls dibs on the little orange carrot on top and dares Steve to fight her for it, declaring “Rave On (BH)”. Steve would rather cruise around the water hazard after racking up his 50 (=5). “It’s So Easy (BH)

Engine brings us a 26 (=8) and some Ratty Rover and Poached Parrot to go with our carrot cake “Oh, Boy! (BH)”. Mimi, meanwhile, lays out a “Chantilly Lace (BB)” tablecloth and marks down a 50 (=5). The Angels ride in on the wind and can barely stay in the cart. With the “Paddi-Whack Song (RV)” for inspiration they putt a 38 (=10).

Gracie T-t putts a 41 (=5) and tells us her catty’s adventures of this morning. Thanks for the reminder that plastic bag handles should be cut before allowing kitties to play with them and we have to agree, Percy, there’s “Someone Watching Over You (BB)”! After preparing by Staring Behind Things, Tucker lines up his putt and scores a 48 (=12) I think his theme song is “Cry Cry Cry (RV)” And finally, Bee Gee declares that “That’ll Be The Day (BH)” when carrot cake should pass HER lips! It’s a 23 (=5) for her.

A very interesting cluster of scores today, with no one left out:
1st – Steve, Mimi, Gracie T-t and Bee Gee with 5
2nd – Engine with 8
3rd – Luvbug, Mallow, and the Angels with 10
And left over we have Tucker, who still gets to go to the still room with his 12 pieces of carrot cake

❀ Mews from Mallow Castle ❀
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

Groundhog Day! 2-2-16
Looks like a couple other hogs are trying to butt in. Hedge hogs, sled hogs. Oh wait, sled DOGS. Kinda the same thing, if you ask me. And just look at that crazy cart! What is IN there? Squirrels, beavers, weasels? Who let them on the course??

Luvbug(30) wants to learn all about those other critters in the cart. You just go right on ahead, give us a report on what you find out ... Mallow(33) learns the hard way to keep her G-string out of the way when she plays golf. Ukulele string, that is. Sheesh, you guys ... Haley(26) says she can warm things up with a little Pepper. Is that your personal sled dog? That's cheating.

Goofy Steve is so eager to get out and harness the power of a dog sled he forgets to leave a score. Goofy golfer! ... Mimi(46) volunteers to blindfold the groundhog so he can't see his shadow. If we just leave him in the ground, he won't see his shadow either ... Engine(47) says we need that groundhog out of his den, so he can be the guest of honor at the buffet. Ground groundhog? Well, since you put it that way.

GTt(24) volunteers more info about Percy & the OL's crapper capers than we want (or need) to know! ... Tucker(19) is none too thrilled about all the hitchhikers crammed into the catty cart! Sounds like he could out-grouch the golf bully today. Yikes ... And here's the golf bully (21) herself, wondering if we could hire the groundhog to add extra holes to the course. Makes putting MUCH easier!

Notice we're having a Bill Murray kind of day? Catty Shack, Groundhog Day. Maybe tomorrow we can all get Scrooged!
1st - Engine just edges out Mimi for first with her 47
2nd - But Mimi is breathing down her neck with a 46.
3rd - Way down in third is Mallow, with a 33.
Oh dear, grumpy Tucker and the golf bully are heading to the cart barn together. Play nice in there!

I saw my shadow! Is winter over?

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

Monday recap
February,the short month,the month of love....ick. Well,here we are trying to bake the great state of Alaska (anyone know the temperature?) while joining forces with GI Joe to fight for freedom and the ability to use body paint and decorate with candy while being naked at work dumping a jerk. We're gonna need a nap after all of that. Who said February was going to be boring!

Luvbug (34) offers black ice skating as a coronation after pawty activity. Most of us have trouble just trying to walk after all that.

Queen Mallow,Beneficent Ruler of the Universe (34) shows up for her first day on the job wearing only face paint and a smile. Gonna be a very interesting month.

I score a 47 in my edible outfit of Starbursts and gummy drops. Hope they don't dissolve in my hula around the coola.

Ana(44) makes her Valentines plans early this morning. Get a better gift that way I suppose.Does anyone get a gift anymore? Whatever happened to the days of making a Valentines box,and getting hard,break your teeth candy? Or how about conversation hearts so you can carry on a conversation with yourself all day.

Mudcat (54) frowns on the work naked,she would rather be having fun naked in her grass skirt and leis :) New dance routine?

Engine is back with a 52,but more importantly-FOOD!!!! we have....lazy lizard legs (easier to catch) and pulled possum and Sharknado to drink. I'm liking February more and more.

GTt (43) prepares to bag our meal for tomorrow-groundhog who better NOT see his shadow tomorrow. Idiot vermin......

Tuck (46) nixes his naked hula in favor for ice cream for breakfast and a candied up pup. A pupsicle!

BG (25) does the dance of the serpent (what have you females been drinking???) and goes for an ice cream migraine with ice cream for breakfast,lunch and dinner.

Scores:
1st with 25 BG
2nd with matching 34's Luvbug and Mallow
3rd with 43 GTt

Losers: watch her wiggle,watch her jiggle Mudcat with 54,and Engine with 52

XOXO~S~

❀ Mews from Mallow Castle ❀
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

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!!

Hello, vole expert!
I had NO idea cats don't eat voles. Are you sure? Maybe it's only YOU cats who don't eat voles. Or maybe only YOUR voles are inedible? I never heard of such a thing. Wait, maybe I have. Cats don't eat crows or magpies or jays. We kill 'em, but we don't eat 'em. Purrhaps they are too tough? Or maybe they just taste mangy. MOL!

Catty Caturday! 1-30-16
Looks like most of you let your catties do the putting today. A couple of you just phoned it in. Left it on the Catty Shack answering machine.

"Hello, you've called Catty Shack. If you know why you've called, please tell us. If you can possibly make it interesting, that would be helpful. You have no idea how boring it is listening to all these messages. Maybe you could make it funny too? That would be great. Thanks!"

Sounds like Luvbug(45/9) plans on making some prank calls later. Just hope they don't have Caller ID! ... I think Mojo(38/11) needs to call and leave a message about signing up for putting lessons ... Ana(27/9) called without exactly knowing why. The answer to your question is "The second Tuesday of next week"

JC(26/8) looks like he's autitioning for a Bob Hope golf flick! Cute little knickers ... Oh good grief. Orange Cat Catturday catty golf day, for Steve and his "loaner" catty Maizy(27/9) ... Percy the Putter(23/5) needs to contain his enthusiasm! He's scatterd twigs and debris everywhere, chasing after balls! Doffing his cap for a sweeping bow.

Dot(24/6) is so proud of the gang for remembering Catty Day that she dances her way across the green and right into the clubhouse ... And Grunt(34/7) gets a bit creative by using a croissant to putt a lime from the bar. Not bad for a beginner.

How did the catties do in the inaugural Catty Caturday?
1st - Percy the Putter wins the debut, 5.
2nd - Dot dances her way into second place, 6.
3rd - Grunt takes third and even brings lunch.

Mojo will be scheduling putting lessons later. Right?

~ A. Mallow's Lost & Found - Jan 30th ~
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.”

Hi Gracie!
Just a reminder to all catty shackers! Tomorrow is the last Saturday of the month, so our catties will be doing the putting honors. We get to sit on our laurels *ouch* and watch the events unfold from the comfort of the lounge. Yeah, heck, they're catties! They're used to dragging around heavy bags of clubs and other implements of torture. So we'll be rooting them on whilst lifting a few at the ol' bar!

~ A. Mallow's Lost & Found - Jan 29th ~
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!

Gracie, just for you!
Gone-ta-pott day right after Thomas Crapper day-coincidence? They should make it litter box day tomorrow to really hit the spot. A moment please to remember Rocky on the 5th anniversary of his crossing,then the kazoo toots and pancake toss can commence. Priorities....

Luvbug (35) believes in safety first before fun at work. We're all wielding iron golf clubs and swinging them randomly around while imbibing,how much safer can you get than that :)

Mallow (51) Does an inspirational kazoo serenade. All it inspires us to do is drink more. Not a bad thing.

I'm joined by the twins again (22) I'm keeping a safe distance so I can Gone-ta-potty in private.Some things are better done alone,for all of your sake.

Mudcat (36) reminiscences her "innocent" years of tip-clawing thru the daisies. That innocent stuff won't fool us-we saw what the princess of the pole can do! Mmmmm look....she brought us something with fins and gills for today's tasties.

GTt (23) is "in the library" today. Seems she beat me to the gone-ta-potty.

Tuck scores another 22!!! Score-we are double dating with the twins today, while his mom has fun at work. While mom's away,Tuck will play. Golf,he plays golf.

And BG (37) feeling very lonely (since she is the only one to be able to get on CC) is the leader in her one cat kazoo marching band.

Scores:
1st with 22-Tuck and ME
2nd with 23 GTt
3rd with 35 Luvbug with 35

Losers:Mallow with 51 (serves you right for breaking CC this morning) and BG with 37

~ A. Mallow's Lost & Found - Jan 28th ~
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.'

Gracie!
It sounds like your maternal instincts are taking over. You went out and caught a vole so you could help provide for poor little Percy. Keep up the good work! You guys will be best buds in no time!

1/27/16 - Let's eat chocolate cake on the crapper!
Yep, that’s Catty Shack, class ALL the way!

Luvbug comes first with a 35 (=8), enumerating the accomplishments of Mr. Thomas Crapper of London, whose special day it is today. Are we going to have fun or what?! A. Mallow sets up a crapper on the green, steps up to the tee to whack the ball down the fairway for a 48 (=12). Completely forgetting it's putting day. Yes, I think that score IS eminently flushable, Mallow! Steve, meanwhile, ponders the perfect convergence of Thomas Crapper Day with Chocolate Cake day. A 30 (=3) for him.

Ana is warming up with a not-to-bad 40 (=4), Engine brings us a 42 (=6) and enough Long Island Mice Tea to tide us over two days and Mimi shoots a 49 (=13) and honours Mr. Crapper for giving the language one of her Mom’s favourite words.

Gracie T-t celebrates the beginning of Vole Hunting Season by bringing the first fresh vole of the season, her very first all-by-herself dispatch! Obi-Wan UBB has taught you well, he would be so proud! And that 31 (=4) isn’t bad either. Tucker, meanwhile has a 30 (=3) and hopes that Steve didn’t bake the chocolate cake that’s in the clubhouse. Steve is not too clear on where in the store one finds the bakers chocolate, know what I mean? Lastly, BeeGee brings a 32 (=5) as she expounds on the symbiotic relationship between chocolate cake and crappers. But not too explicitly. Thank goodness.

And the final countdown?
1st – Steve and Tucker, with 3 whole chocolate cakes each
2nd – Ana and Gracie T-t, with 4 pieces of chocolate cake. And some vole rolls.
3rd – Bee Gee with a 5

And Mallow can thank her lucky stars that Mimi came today, because she managed to out-crap Mallow’s crappy score and come away with a 13. Off to the cart barn she goes.

With one last toast all around to Mr. Thomas Crapper of London (you mean they seriously did not ever knight this guy?),

Your Guest Common (couch) ‘Tater, Mike

~ A. Mallow's Lost & Found - Jan 27th ~
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!

Hollow Toad Day! 1-26-16
Day of Encouragement? Well, I guess SO! It's gonna take a LOT of encouragement to get me to hollow out a toad! Oh wait, it's Toad Hollow. Oh no! That's even worse! I see where Toad Hollow can't be found on a map, only in your heart. I don't WANT a hollow toad in my heart! Get it out, get it OUT!!

Luvbug(30) says it's okay to be encouraging, even to people you don't like. You've obviously forgotten who you're dealing with here ... Mallow(44) has no trouble encouraging her very own megalomaniacal self. Maybe you can have hollow toad races at the castle next month ... Haley(32) is moving up on the "nice" scale, one degree at a time.

Steve(44) is treating his twins to a brunch of hollow toad on toast. And a little pinkie drinkie ... Engine(32) keeps her cool while her secretary loses hers. Um, you might want to lose that smelly songbird stew too. Just sayin' ... Mimi(40) enlightens Mallow to the "dark side" of castle dwelling.

GTt(35) is in fine fettle today. You may feel differently when you catch a whiff of that smelly songbird ... Tucker(47) has such a bad case of cabin fever he's heading out to goose a toad! ... And Bee Gee(33) has decided to celebrate cabin fever with a pouting contest. First prize is a hollow toad!

1st - Tucker, goosed his temperature right up to 47!
2nd - A tie, pinkie Steve & MegaloMallow, 44.
3rd - Mimi, just back from the dark side, 40.

Looks like "encouraging" Luvbug and "nice" Haley will be doing the cart barn shuffle today. Say hello to the still for us!

~~~Toby~~~
I got the blues...
The low down cabin fever blues!

~ A. Mallow's Lost & Found - Jan 26th ~
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.

~ A. Mallow's Lost & Found - Jan 25th ~
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.”

twc
is already mentioning another possible nor'easter coming up the coast later this week or early next or both, nobody knows, but they were right spot on with the last one, although the track wasn't known till it was just about upon us. we were lucky not a single flake flew here as the cutoff point was just to the other side of the mountain range up the street to the south. sooner or later we'll get zapped and it's not going to be pretty either, but till then we can only pray that the storms miss us or give us rain and not the white stuff. how's the next furlip files coming? angels,ab,haley
