Please Vote Serj & Leah #196985 COTD Mon 6/17
Our Special Recognition cats today are Serj & Leah #196985 who were both adopted from Lolly Pop
Farm Animal Shelter at the tender age of eight weeks old. Both quickly acclimated to their new
forever home by making fast friends with their new furry siblings with Serj #196985 getting close to
his sister Katie, who sadly is now an angel, and Leah being wherever her brother Gir is. Like all of us
cats, both of these fine felines have their own personalities and likes & dislikes. Serj is pretty
outspoken but Leah #196985 is shy. Serj's morning routine is waiting for his mom every morning in
the bathroom and after her shower, insists on head scratches and kisses and lovey dovey time. Leah
#196985 is a bit feral but she has relaxed enough that she will allow her mom to pet her on occasion
without running away. Leah lets her mom know when their food bowls are empty by standing on the
counter and meowing an alert to have the bowls filled. Leah only likes dry food and especially likes it
when it is poured fresh into her bowl. Serj #196985 will jump over the dog gate to get inside his
mom's bedroom so he can cuddle with her even when he whacks at the ferrets during the night. Leah
prefers the company of Gir and hides very well when she knows it is time for a vet visit. Please
pounce over on Monday, June 17th, and leave a vote for Serj & Leah #196985 so they can proudly have
a shiny new COTD badge to display on their page.

While out and about the CC, please visit our June candidate for COTM, Dolly #222609 and leave a vote
for her collection so she can become our COTM for July. Dolly's stories are fascinating and exciting
and we are sure you will enjoy reading her postings.
Also please visit and leave a vote for our June King, King Whiskers #227256 while we journey with
him along the coast of beautiful California.
CC kitties and families, thank you for supporting our Special Recognition cats and our feline
community. As a token of our appreciation we are leaving a big tub of fresh catnip flavored popcorn
(not only is it good to eat, it is fun to play with) and grilled fish with tuna BBQ sauce on the side for
your enjoyment.

This is Sienna and family along with Linguini and family wishing you all a good
week. Oh! and don't forget to give big head bonks & purrs to all of the dads out there to let them
know they are loved.

***Please Vote Jake 205858 Mon June 10***
Handsome Jake and his fursister Katie were found outside a local Pet Smart by his future mom. One look into his eyes, and she knew the only thing she could do was bring them both home. Now, Jake is her personal protecter making sure to thoroughly check out anyone who comes into his home before he lets them near her. He also loves hanging out in the window and chatting with the birds as well as wrestling with his daddy. What he does not like is having his sleep interrupted and his nails trimmed. Can't say that I blame him there, BOL. Please paw on by his page 205858 and leave him a vote for his very own COTD badge.
And please don't forget our current COTM candidate, the lovely Miss Dolly 222609. I know she would appreciate hearing from you as well as collecting your vote. Thanking you with purrs of catitude. Love, Queen Angel Callie & Sibs for the Catpaign & Mews room.

Please Vote Puzzle #256239 COTD on Monday June 3rd
Puzzle’s Mom went to County Services to meet this handsome boy. She sat in the kitty room for a very long time hoping to make a special connection with a kitty but sadly she didn't find what she was looking for, as she was about to leave they wheeled in a cart of kittens and there in the middle of them was Puzzle. He didn't take his eyes off of her so she plucked him out and he instantly gave her Nose kisses and of course she decided he would go home with her that day. He still blesses her with this loving gesture every day. Puzzle #256239 is very athletic and likes to jump long distances, although he is not always successful, Mom hears an occasional thud but he shakes it off and tries again!! He loves to hunt the birds, bugs & lizards outside the sliding glass door, occasionally one slips in and mom ruins his game by pitching the offender back out. He also has a stuffed buddy that he carries around with him, chattering away to it the whole time. He loves to play with his favorite toys Kickaroos, Cat Dancers & Charmers. He is very laid back and loves his fursibs ButtonBlue, Add-A-Line, Blondie & his best playing buddy Lolapalooza Lili, although he does get disgusted with her dunking all of his toys in the water fountain. Please stop and give Puzzle #256239 your vote so that he may show off a shiny new COTD Badge.

We would like to Thank Queen Spunky #161265 who gave a wonderful two months of cat shows and travels. Please Stop by and Visit King Whiskers #227256 at the castle, we look forward to hearing more from this kind and caring leader. Please stop by daily and give your support to DOLLY #222609 on her quest to become our July COTM.

Thank you for your continued support of the CMR Special Recognition Campaigns and our outstanding candidates! These campaigns are chosen for families who are trying to help other CC members by visiting and voting. In appreciation, we are leaving you a Catnip Chip Ice Cream Bar. This is Mouse & Tucker with Mike #161232 & Mallow for the CMR page #46883.

~Please Vote Leo & Mai Lin #245322 COTD Mon 5/27~
K Leo and his sibling Mai Lin are two of the most cherished members of our CC family. They are always on hand to congratulate kitties who are celebrating. They console those who are sad, and they support all of the catpaigns and special events here on CC. They are very active in the Mouse Hockey League, promoting good sportsmanship and enjoying friendly competition.

We all fondly remember Leo’s Reign as King, which he won on his old account, along with two COTD badges. Now he has joined his presence on CC with Mai Lin and the two of them are very good friends to all of us. It is most assuredly time for all of us to join together to honor these two wonderful kitties with their own shiny new COTD badge.

Also, please keep those COTM votes rolling for Whiskers (227256) so this handsome kitty, can proudly wear the June COTM crown as our King. Remember to let him know how much fun it’s been sharing his wonderful blogs about inspiring animals and his great health tips. (There have been some laughs and some tears, but his daily word for us has always been from the heart and always very interesting.) His catpaign has been inspiring, and we look forward to more insightful blogs from our very special friend Whiskers.
Please remember to stop in to visit our current COTM, Queen Spunky (161265) to let her know how much we’ve enjoyed her reign and her great excursions to some amazing places.

So, On behalf of the whole CMR team, this is Pete and the Girls, with Zaboo & NICE Crew, thanking you for your continued support of the CMR’s special recognition COTD campaigns & our remarkable COTM candidates. Hugs & purrs......

Please vote Rosie #252822 for COTD on Monday, 5/20
Recently a cat loving family had their red female cat, Angel Rhuby cross over the Rainbow Bridge. The cat mom of this family decided she would like to adopt another red female and as luck would have it, there was Rosie at the Petsmart Adoption Center. Rosie #252822 and her new mom bonded instantly and Rosie came to her new home that day. Rosie was at the shelter for over two months and was a bit wild. She didn't like being kept in a cage and would fight with the shelter workers when they tried to put her back in her cage. This was a big reason why Rosie #252822 wasn't adopted sooner; she was scared and the people looking at her were not patient with her until her new mom came along. Now at her new home Rosie #252822 is a cuddle cat with her daddy and loves to play with her brother Yogi. She gets along with the rest of her furry siblings and is a happy cat. Rosie #252822 will not eat dry food but she will eat any kind of wet food. She doesn't like dry treats either! Rosie loves to play with her furry mouse and the laser light. Rosie #252822 is happily spoiled now in her new home and we are very happy she has found a wonderful loving home. Rosie would be so honored to have a COTD badge to display on her page. Please visit Rosie #252822 on Monday, 5/20, and leave a vote for her so she can proudly have her own shiny COTD badge.
While making the rounds of visits on the CC, please go visit our May catpaigner for COTM, Whiskers #227256, and give his votey button a good whack so he can add your vote to his collection to become our King of June.. Also, please visit our Queen of May, Queen Spunky #161265, and letting her know we are all thinking of her and her family

Purrs,
Sienna & sibs, Linguini & family,along with Zaboo & NICE Crew

~RAINBOW SCOOP-May 17, 2013~
From the cloud desk of Angel Sherman….Please vote ACOTD for ANGEL CRASH #248838! This sweet kitty joined the angels in February 2013 after losing his battle with complications that developed after being hit by a car the month before. He’d survived having both legs broken & surgery, but was unable to walk & had to drag himself to the litterbox. He was very brave & stayed a very sweet boy during all of the pain, infections, examinations & becoming a foster; but the angels knew that his life would not be a full one with his disabilities & thus called him home. Please pounce by to paw ANGEL CRASH #248838 a vote today so that his foster mom will have a fond memory to cherish & so that this sweet angel can earn the honor of making his star the most brilliant in the night sky tomorrow night.

Congratulations to our newest royal cat QUEEN SPUNKY #161265!! Your campaign about the details of cat shows was stupendous & we learned a lot about how things work for the fabulous show cats. We’re looking forward to some California sunshine during May as you reign from your house on the beach & look forward to hearing more letters to God from beloved pets. Have a great time as our new queen & thank you for an enchanting campaign month.

Congratulations to our new COTM nominee WHISKERS #227256!! We’ve been keeping a close watch on you sweet boy because you’re one of those special kitties that bring out the best in all the others whose lives you touch. We’re looking forward to seeing everything you have in store for us while you’re on the campaign trail. Good luck on your quest for the next crown!

**Vote Gypsy & The Inside Cats 255012 Mon May 12**
Our gang of COTD candidates consists of Gypsy, Ellie Mae, Andy, Mindy and Moses - all found and resuced by their future daddy . Amazingly, they all get along great with each other and you can find them hanging out on window sills or table counters (forget the cat tree!) They are a high energy bunch, though, and love racing through the house early morning before leading their mom to the kitchen. Their favorite foods are Purina One and party mix. Please paw on by their page 255012 and leave them a vote for their very own COTD badge. And don't forget about our current COTM candidate, the handsome Whiskers 227256.

~PLEASE VOTE KAYLIN #251700 for COTD MAY 6th~
Please paw by & meet this beautiful Champagne Point Tonkinese kitty. KAYLIN #251700 is not just a beautiful face she is also a CFA Champion & a Mom. She was hand picked for her new parents by her sister Wendy's breeder when she found out how sick Wendy was. But this sweet girl was already a mom so her new parents had to wait to bring her home. All of her kitties found their furever homes & then she had her Big Girl surgery. She was finally able to come to her new home in January. She wasn't sure if she wanted to stay at first, but her new parents gave her lots of love & support so we are happy to report she is settling in quite nicely. KAYLIN #251700 spends her days hanging out on Mom & Dads laps, playing with her toys, & napping in the sun. She also likes to tear through the apartment at top speed and has been known to do it in the middle of the night too. Her most favorite things to eat are the Roast Chicken that she shares with her parents, and her Blue food. She Loves to make new friends so won't you please stop and give KAYLIN #251700 your vote and make a new friend.

We give our Heartfelt Thanks To Queen Trixie #172636 who brought us a magnificent two months of wonderful animal stories, fun and zoo adventures as our April Queen.

A Word With Whiskers – May 01
About Whiskers and His Family – An Introduction
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
I am so happy to be your COTM candidate this month. Happy May Day to all of you and thank you for the many Happy Birthday wishes to my fursisters and me.

Let me begin my first blog by telling you a little bit about myself and my family, and how we came to be.

I’ve been a CC member since Jan. 2012 & I was voted CROTD in August 2012 and COTD in September 2012. In September 2012, I earned my wings as a pilot in the Royal Squadron studying at the Royal Flight Academy under the instruction of K. Pete (72572). I met and fell in love with his beautiful fursister, Talley (88476), who officially became my girlfriend on December 12, 2012, without question, the happiest day of my life.

My pawrents were life long fans of canines before us, and it has taken them several years to finally recognize that cats are individuals, unlike any other pet, with many unique traits adding to our feline mystique.

Entering the world as feral kittens, the angels of good fortune took pity upon us and brought us to our furever home. Even though my Mom knew absolutely nothing about cats, she would never turn away an animal in need. So we had a safe haven, but we still were not really a part of the family. Cats were thought of as adornments – no interaction necessary or needed. How wrong we proved that misconception to be.

It wasn’t until my Mom retired from her job, now spending time at home with us, did she really begin to notice what wonderful, loving companions we could be. But now what, she wondered? They don’t like to go for walks and they don’t fetch or catch Frisbees. So my Mom turned to the Internet to find out what cats are all about. After extensive research, reading and getting to know one another, we’ve finally begun to appreciate and partially understand each other.

Together, we have been reading everything we can about us amazing felines. My pawrents are learning to appreciate this fascinating creature, the Cat. My fursister Callie and I have turned this once “dogs only” household into a haven worthy of cats. We have an outside fursister named Whitey, who still is not convinced about being an indoor cat, but we are adamantly working on changing her mind. I hope you enjoy my daily blogs, sharing what we’ve read and enjoyed together.

I’d like to thank Queen Trixie (#172636) for her wonderful reign as our Queen for April 2013. She was a great leader who will be missed, and we wish her a happy retirement! This morning, let’s give a warm CC welcome to our beautiful new Queen Spunky (#161265)! See you at the Coronation!

~Vote COTD 4/29 COLT, WINCHESTER & KIMBER #251320~
This week’s special recognition candidates were found on the side of a road near a wooded area when they were barely old enough to fend for themselves. Their guardian angel was working hard that day & led their new mom to the right spot where she picked up the three mewing furballs & took them home. These precious sibs have stolen the hearts of many CC members by mom’s picture postings on FB & it’s pawsome being able to watch them grow up here in our loving community. Colt and Winchester love to talk to calm Kimber down because she’s very shy, unlike her more outgoing sibs. They love to play with their mouse toys & frequently pick on their bigger sibs throughout the day to see how much they can get away with. You can often find this rambunctious trio of young felines looking out of the window talking to birds, or playing with their light up ball. They’re snugglers too! They’re often found in the lap of mom or grandpa or you can see them snuggling happily together in their kitty bed. The inseparable trio of COLT,WINCHESTER & KIMBER#251320, are also keeping the house hopping with their energy level so let’s help them bounce off the walls a little more by pouncing by to paw them a COTD vote today, Monday April 29th, so they can earn their very first badge of honor tomorrow!

Only two days left for SPUNKY #161265 out on the COTM catpaign trail so please pounce by to paw your votes of support to this beautiful show girl so she can twist through the community next month wearing the crown of May as our Emerald Queen!

While you’re pouncing around please remember to leap through the northern Indiana woods to visit our current COTM Queen Trixie #172636 aka the Calico Cyclone, & thank her for the animal tales she spun for us before she turns over the royal reins to future Queen Spunky aka the White Tornado.

This is Zaboo/NICE Crew, Sabrina, Duchess & family leaving you a triple berry muffin as our way of thanking you for your support of our fine candidates. Have a pawsome week everyone!

Please vote Cassandra #205806 for COTD-Mon Apr 15
The CMR crew is pleased to introduce to you another Special Recognition Cat: Cassandra #205806 for COTD. We are pawing and pouncing over to ask you to please vote for Cassandra for COTD on Monday, 4/15 (otherwise known as Tax Day in the human's world).

Cassandra's full name is Cassandra Lee Brown, which to us sounds like a good name. She was named Cassandra after a book her mommy read about a beautiful lady who had golden green eyes and long black hair. Yes, we would say this suits Cassandra #205806 to a "t". Cassandra also is a princess around her home. She is pampered and loves attention especially from her human daddy. Cassandra #205806 is dainty and little, weighing in at only six pounds and is the twin to her brother Montgomery George Brown. They were lucky kitties and both were adopted together into their forever home. When the mood strikes her, Cassandra #205806 can hide in the smallest of places and will close the cupboard door behind her leaving it almost impossible to locate her. Cassandra likes hamburgers from Burger King, cheese and hot dogs. She hates being interrupted from her naps and being ignored by her daddy. Please paw over to visit this sweetheart of a cat, Cassandra #205806 and leave a vote for her so she can proudly display a COTD badge to all who visit her.

While you are on the CC, please paw a vote for our newest campaigner for COTM, Spunky #161265 who is introducing us all to her adventures and advise about cat shows and the expectations from the cats and the judges. Please continue to visit our COTM, Queen Trixie #172636 who is continuing to lead us on zoo tours across the world and keeping us informed of the plight of endangered animals.

This is Sienna and family along with Linguini and family leaving you fresh roasted spring lamb with lots of catnip sauce and homemade oatmeal cookies for desert, thanking you all for continuing to support our candidates for COTD. Sending purrs and wishing you and your families peace and good health.

~Queen Trixie's Tales~ Sat April 13th
Good Morning & happy Caturday kitties! We’re taking another long weekend trip so I hope you packed your overnight bag. The plane is ready & we’ll be taking off toward the Sooner State (Oklahoma) to meet Brina & Sheba before checking into the Best Western hotel located near downtown Oklahoma City. It’s conveniently located near the city's best attractions, food, & entertainment plus has a pool & free wi-fi so we can check in with our pawents when we arrive! Since I’ve got the zoo trip actually planned for tomorrow, because of a special event they’re having, we can spend the day exploring the city. We can walk through history at the Amateur Softball Association Hall of Fame, explore Bricktown & downtown Oklahoma City, pay our respects at the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial, enjoy horse racing at Remington Park or visit the Oklahoma State Capital after we arrive. DID YOU KNOW? The state's name is derived from the Choctaw Indian words okla and humma, meaning "red people". Established with a Land Run (April 22, 1899) it was designated a state in 1907, making it just over a hundred years young. Oklahoma is the winter quarters for more circuses than any other state, their state capitol is the only one in the world with an oil well drilled beneath it! From Indian heritage & Viking explorers to land runs & oil booms, Oklahoma has a history unlike any other state. You can check out all they have to offer at http://www.travelok.com. I’ve posted pics of their state flag, which is an Osage warrior shield on a field of blue, with the shield crossed by a peace pipe and an olive branch, plus one of their state seal, which shows a pioneer & an Indian shaking hands beneath the Scales of Justice, centered in a star. (The star's five rays each contain symbols of the Five Civilized Tribes.) Time to board the plane now kitties so pounce on board, fasten your seat belts & get ready for a trip to Oklahoma. On the way I’m going to meow about two more of our special CC furiends but tomorrow I’ll present the Oklahoma Zoo info to you before we leave the hotel.

From KC #21110-Mom and Dad had a former feral cat named Mars who once scared off someone who was trying to break in. First they heard her yowl in the basement while they were upstairs. When they started down to investigate they found her sitting on the kitchen table growling at the sliding door. When they investigated they found evidence that someone had first tried getting in the basement window and then started to open the sliding door. They left it open a little, but it seems that Mars' yowl and growl were enough to scare them off!

PRINCESS #4817 Princess has a pretty amazing talent too. She knows when her Mom's sugar levels drop too low when Mom is sleeping. She will wake Mom up by purring and meowing very loudly, and then head bonk's Mom's hand. It wakes Mom up really fast when she does that!

Loving purrs,
Queen Trixie

Hi Expresso & Angel Bobbles
Day 10
Thank you for all your support. I really appreciate you hitting my votey button every day. It makes me so happy to see all you come by and meow to me.
I had told you of the two upcoming shows on the schedule so fair for the 2012-2013 season. Now the only shows scheduled for the 2013-2014 season are. Oct 5 Palm Springs and Dec 28-29 in Las Vegas Riviera Hotel. I know someday I’ll go to Las Vegas. I wonder if I’m old enough to gamble. Kitty needs more toys. MOL Shows are still being scheduled so that is why mom always tries to stay on top of it. OK sometimes she misses a show. Silly mommy.
In case you were wondering, the cage size is usually 36 inches wide, 24 inches deep and 27 inches high. One cat or two kittens are allowed per cage. Some shows have a “double cages” which are partitioned into two single cages. In this arrangement a single cage is 26 inches wide, 22 inches deep and 22 inches high. A double cage (extra charge) is 54 inches wide, 22 inches deep and 22 inches high. No more than one cat or two kittens may be benched in the same cage.
The cage covers must cover two sides and back. It is recommended that the top and bottom is covered as well.
The covering for the cage is to prevent your cat from seeing its neighbors. People who show regularly have spectacular curtains and decorations for their cages. I have a towel for my bottom of the cage but sometimes I just use an extra curtain to make my area extra fancy. MOL
Have a catriffic day. Enjoy lots of mom and dad time.
Kitty kisses
Spunky

The Tales of Queen Trixie
Hi Expresso & Angel Bobbles,
Happy Tuesday! Okay kitties…today we’re touring my home state a little bit & taking a trip to Michigan City, IN to see the OLD LIGHTHOUSE MUSEUM! At the bend of Trail Creek in the Michigan City harbor stands an historic old structure whose beacon served as a guiding light for Great Lakes sailors for more than 100 years. Michigan City's well-lighted port has a long and interesting history, bound to Lake Michigan with all its mysteries and beauties. Michigan City's first light was a simple "postlight"( lantern on a tall pole) located approximately 100 feet west of the present lighthouse. In 1837, Jeremy Hixon, Sr. and his son were contracted by the U.S. Government to build a permanent lighthouse in Michigan City. That structure consisted of a keeper's dwelling with a 40 foot high whitewashed tower topped with a lantern to house the light. As shipping in Michigan City increased, primarily grain and lumber, a brighter light was needed to guide ships into the busy port. In 1858, the U.S. Government constructed a lighthouse using Joliet stone for the foundation and Milwaukee or "Cream City" bricks for the superstructure. On November 20, 1871, the first beacon light was installed on the east pier. (http://www.oldlighthousemuseum.org)
The Old Lighthouse Museum opened officially on June 9, 1973 & has guided tours Tues-Sun from 1-4pm so that’s where we’re going today kitties! I’d originally planned to meow to you about another of our CC furiends while we’re traveling on the Cyclone Express bus today but I’ll do that on Thursday instead since this article about my home state caught my eye this morning.

~Dachshund Adopts Abandoned Kittens~
In a story originally shared by Fox 59 in Indianapolis, four kittens were born on the front porch of a local couple, right before an early spring blizzard brought more than nine inches of snow to the area. The couple found the kittens alone and brought them inside to care for them. Little did they know it would be their Dachshund, JOJO, who would do much of the caretaking! The dog immediately took over mothering duties, including producing milk to nurse the kittens. The couple told Fox 59 that JoJo “acts as if she birthed them herself.” The kittens, who are all boys, are named Poseidon, Hephaestus, Pan and Zephyr, also known as the “blizzard kittens.” They’ll be available for adoption when they’re old enough.

Now that’s another true awww moment! They have their own FB page but for those that don’t go there I’ve also posted pics in my gallery so you can also get that warm fuzzy feeling from seeing this pawtastic doggie with her ‘kitty pups’. This family gets the Calico award of excellence for cuteness!
*Please remember to pounce by & put a vote into SPUNKY’S #161265 collection dish in California each day while you’re roaming CC!*

Sweet calico kisses & loving purrs,
Queen Trixie

Please vote for Dixie 230112 Monday April 8
Cute as a button Dixie was dropped off at her future home where she now happily resides with her humans and fursiblings. She has learned how to love from them and quite often you can find her hanging out on her mom or grandmom's lap. She doesn't have any pet peeves but she loves jumping into open drawers. Isn't that a great trick? Her motto is an important one: "Spay and neuter your pets." I couldn't agree more. Please paw on by her page 230112 and leave her a vote for her very own COTD badge. And while you are in a voting mood, don't forget our current COTM candidate, the adorable Miss Spunky 161215. I know both will appreciate your visit.

Thanking you with purrs of catitude. Love, Sabrina and Sylvester & Sibs for the Catpaign & Mews Room page

Hi Expresso!
LOVE YOUR NAME!! 'stuff' has been happening around here! So much,that I am way behind on my blogs! First,thanks on the well wishes for mom's mother...she is now out of rehab as of this past Wednesday,and at home. Then mom spent a lot of time deleting pages and making mew ones...the woman just can't make up her mind! Changes were also made in the cat enclosure! Dad shut off the down stairs part so he could plant some grass in it,but the boys are NOT happy about it! Brother Dixion is no longer confined to the enclosure,as he was so unhappy,he was getting very depressed and aggressive to the others,so mom let him out. Andy(inside boy) kept dashing out the door so much that mom let him GO!,because she feared he would trip her or dad up trying to escape! Now,we live out in the country,and WAY off the road,otherwise mom would never have let them out. Now,about little Moses,the new kitten dad rescued...mom convinced dad that it would be best to find him a good home...other than ours! WHY? Mom really worries about having so many kitties, that if anything ever happened to her or dad,we(shudder)would wind up in a shelter. Most of us are not so young anymore,so you know what THAT would mean,(another Shudder!) I AGREE with mom...no more kits here!! Second,mom has an appointment with an orthopedic doc,as it seems she might have a torn meniscus in her right knee. She has had that surgery on the left,so knows the drill! Sorry for being so long-winded today,so I will wish you a happy Sunday and I am going to take a nap!~Purrs,Bart

HI Expresso & Angel Bobbles
Day 4
Thank you for all your support and pushing my votey button. It really means a lot that you come by my page.
A household pet is defined as any cat not eligible to be entered in another class at the show. Yes, we have had purebreds in the household pet category they either had a disqualifying trait or no papers, etc. A registered purebred may be shown in one of three catagories: Kitten class (at least 4 months of age but under 8 months of age), Championship Class (8months of age or older and unaltered) and Premiership Class (8months of age or older and spayed/neutered)
Most cat shows are non-vetted and all entries must be free of disease, fungus and parasites and strongly recommended to be inoculated for protection against Feline Enteritis, Rhinotracheitis, Calici Viruses, and tested for FeLV.
I didn’t get any rosettes my first show. It is common for that but there are a few kitties that get rosettes their first show. I had just had my big girl surgery and was a little over 4 months old but hey my sisters never have been in any shows. Mom said she is very proud of me and I’m the best kitty in the show. She tells me that after every ring I go in. I am one lucky little kitty. Mom knows I was real nervous but I let every judge hold me and do whatever they did to me. Ok sometimes it wasn’t comfy. MOL
I hope some of you are getting excited and maybe a few might want to try a show. Everyone says always let you try up to 3 shows before calling it quits. My furriend Scooby Doo’s dad told someone to take her kitty into the bathroom and hold them on the sink like a judge would and tilt the head back to look in the eyes and teeth to help get use to that. He also puts on his swim suit and gets in the tub with all his kitties. They have 3 they show to help with baths and they get use to the water. Ok, I like to bath alone. MOL
Enjoy your day and get lots of mom and dad time.
Kitty kisses

Queen Trixie's Tantalizing Animal Tales
Good Morning dear furiends! Thank you for stopping by with your sweet catgrats yesterday as I was officially pictured as the COTM queen! I’m going to step aside for just a moment to let yesterday’s birthday girl (Patches) meow while I warm up by the fire since it’s a very chilly day in the woods! If you plan on hiking, fishing, or sightseeing today please dress warmly because we’re only supposed to reach the mid 40’s…but we do have lots of sunshine to help warm your fur. Now I’ll let big sis meow….

~Thankful purrs from Patches~
I want to thank all of you for the lovely gifts, sweet hugs & kisses..& most of all the visits you made on my birthday yesterday. It’s always great to see so many of you come by on special days because it makes it a lot more special & also make me purr with sincere happiness. Thank you so much for sharing my birthday with me dear furiends but now I’d better get back to the kitchen so her royal highness can have her daily catnip tarts or she’ll throw a hissing fit…MOL! Have a purrfect day dear furiends!
Big paw hugs,
Patches

Hmmm…I think my big sis just got a quick jab in at my demanding catitude along with thank you meows...MOL! Today I’m bringing you a heroic story that is on the freekibble site after you answer the cat trivia. No pic today though since it wouldn’t let me copy it.
~SOLDIER AND CAT SAVE EACH OTHER IN AFGHANISTAN~
Stationed in an Army base in southern Afghanistan, Sgt. Knott noticed one day that a feral cat who roamed around the base was limping and bleeding heavily. He lured the cat into his office with a piece of steak and spent the next seven months caring for the cat he named Koshka. The two bonded quickly. Sgt. Knott nursed Koshka back to health, while Koshka comforted Sgt. Knott during the certain danger and emotional toll of war. When it was time for Sgt. Knott to return to the states, he wouldn’t leave Koshka behind. He explained to KPTV how he worked with a local Afghan interpreter who agreed to, in an extremely risky transport, take Koshka to Kabul. Weeks later Sgt. Knott learned that the cat (and his Afghan chaperone) made it safely across “God knows how many Taliban check points,” to Kabul, where Koshka boarded a plane bound for the states. The $3,000 Sgt. Knott’s family forked over to fly the cat home was worth every penny, they said. While Sgt. Knott is currently stationed in Washington state, Koshka is now safe at home with Sgt. Knott’s parents until the pair can be together again. The Oregon Humane Society recently honored Sgt. Knott and Koshka with a 2013 Diamond Collar Hero award for their incredible story of friendship.

Thank you for your sweet & generous support dear furiends & don’t forget to pounce over to vote daily for beautiful SPUNKY #161265 so she can wear the crown next month! Have a purrfect day!

Queen Trixie

2/19/13 Happy Tuesday to You From King Barney!
The temp is +5, but a windchill of -14. The good mews is that its the warmest temp in our state. Can you believe that this month is more than halfway over! I do hope you have been enjoying it and your time with us at the castle. We have also been enjoying JosieMae's blogs and we remind all to vote for her page#193862 daily, so she can be Queen of March.

Well the bad mews is that mom is still looking for the camera charger, but the good is that we will have another pic to go with today's story when she finds it. I thought I would tell the story of her first visit to the Golden Valley Humane Society, Golden Valley, MN, not far from us. It was shortly after her grandmother had passed and during the time of Angels Pasha and Agatha. She was job hunting and found a notice of an opening in Humane Education for the Humane Society. Now, at that time she knew she didn't qualify for it, but she wanted the info.
It sure was an interesting trip too. They gave a tour of the facilities, including the adoption areas, which included dogs, cats and other critters. The cats were kept both in cages and had large free rooms, where they were given time out of the cages. Well, I'm sure many of your pawrents know the danger of visiting the cat area of the Humane Society and mom didn't get out free either. As she walked through a stripped orange paw came out of a cage she passed and grabbed her arm. Mom stopped and said hi, removing the claws from her clothing and giving the cat a pat. She turned to leave and again she felt a tap and the claws grabbed her firmly. Again, she stopped to pet the cat. His eye caught hers, as if to say "get me out!" Mom thought about it, but she had Pasha at home and knew she had been told he was not good with other cats. Anyway, she continued her tour, but had to pass this cat once more on the way out. She did not even have him in mind, when the same paw stopped her one last time. The eyes pleaded--- "Please lady, I need to get out of here--- lets blow this pop-stand!" This time she asked about him and his adoption fee. It was only $35.00, with a gift certificate for a low cost neuter. That day Grisha, which is what mom named him, escaped with mom to a new life! It wasn't the end of their adventures, because, although mom kept him in the guest room and had him neutered immediately, he did not get along with Pasha, who wanted to kill him--- no doubt about it.

As usual, we will have to turn this into a two-parter and finish on Thursday. This story has a wonderful ending, so stay tuned. Grisha was a really sweet cat, downright irresistible cat, and even though mom knew it wouldn't work to keep him with Pasha, he was never going back to the Humane Society.

Enjoy your Tuesday! See you Thursday and hope your week is a lot warmer than our promises to be. King Barney.

2/14/13 HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY--- K.BARNEY +27!
Good morning friends and Happy Valentine's Day! The Ice Carnival is set up and ready for your visits. Come for Breakfast and stay all day! Special activities for children and kitties of all ages. A very special Valentine's Eve Ball 6:30--8:00pm Central time. All on King Barney's page, of course. Sleigh rides and royal carriage rides for all, as well as midway Ferris wheel and carrousel, etc. Molly could use help on last minute decorations and Zeus and Andy are busy shoveling last night's snow, to be saved for the snow forts and snowballs.

Almost forgot--- we did promise to finish Tigger's story and have to apologize the pictures are still not available. Mom is looking for the battery charger.
Anyway, except for the terrible earmites and a bit of frostbite, Tigger was remarkably healthy. The vet cleaned his ears, gave him a full exam and shots. He was already neutered, but no form of ID. Mom got extra meds for his ears and the chaplain did call back and officially adopted Tigger back from mom, which turned out to be a good idea though you might ask why, since he originally found the kitten. Well, about three years later, the chaplain called again and said he had a problem. He had to move and could not take Tigger, so Tigger returned to mom to find another home. And, as luck would have it, he found one in record time, even with mom's strict screening. He was an extremely friendly orange cat and very outgoing. He found a new family with some children, who loved him dearly and forever. Mom kept in touch for several years.

Don't forget votes for JosieMae #193862, your future Queen of March. Visit Barney's pg#74382 for the Valentine's Ice Carnival, read details in his profile area and see pictures at the bottom of his page. We will add new activities as thought of or suggested and see you for the live-blog Ball this evening! K.Barney and family

1/20/13 Sunny Sunday from Barney!
Are you cative on CC now?

But here its a cold -1! The wind was howling last night and we all snuggled by mom or in the plush kitty nest beds! Zeus and I escaped out about 9pm last night when the dogs went out. Mom chased after, but she even had to go back for her coat. She knew we would not go far, but she was worried--- sometimes its good to know your mom worries!

One friend asked yesterday if our Andy and Milo ever saw each other again after Milo was adopted. No, unfortunately, but mom has pictures and has talked to Milo's new dad on the phone a few times. He is healthy and well loved.

Well, besides getting a very late start today,we were unsure whether to start a new story or another topic. We have two more current kitties to talk about, Hefty and myself, Barney. Hefty and his sister Tasha, originally named Pasha, came from mom's godson Jonathan. Mom got Pasha first. She changed her name for obvious reasons, because mom had Angel Pasha many years before and she did not feel comfortable calling another cat by that name. She began calling the new Pasha "Tasha", so it would not be too confusing for the kitty.
Hefner "Hefty" and Tasha were brother and sister and had come from the Humane Society several years earlier as brother and sister. They had traveled with Jonathan twice to Florida from Minnesota, where he had been working. After he lost his job, he and his wife came back to Minnesota to live with his mother and Tasha and Hefty were having a hard time adjusting to living with her cats. One of his mother's cats was very old and the Siamese were picking on him. Jonathan's mom called mom to ask if she could help. Let us explain that his mom and mom had been friends since ninth grade. They are now both retired--- scarey! Mom agreed to take Tasha first and Tasha soon found another forever home through adoption. Mom might have kept her if she realized she would be getting Hefner a few months later, but Tasha had found a wonderful home and mom could not ask for her back.

So there is your preview of at least the first half of the week ahead. Lots to cover and think about. So glad we have been getting so many positive and wonderful comments on all our stories. We do enjoy telling them, as much as you enjoy listening. There is sometimes a lot of sadness and pain in rescue, but it is all the great, loving forever home stories that make it worthwhile. Of course, all of you know that too and that is what makes the CC family so wonderful! Have a Super Sunday, rest, and be ready for the new week ahead.

It's a wonderful life
Philip Van Doren Stern (1900-1984) began a short story, The Greatest Gift", in 1939. He was inspired by a dream, and reminiscent of the 1843 Charles Dickens' Christmas Carol. Stern shared 200 printed copies in 1943 with friends as a year-end cards after numerous publisher rejections.
Luckily, the pamphlet came to the attention of a RKO movie producer who purchased the rights. Frank Capra's production company saw the movie potential. He paid $10,000 for the rights in 1945. Stern's story was adapted into the most loved and memorable American family film, "It's a Wonderful Life" in 1946. Director Capra's inventiveness, humor and affection for human beings keep it glowing with life and excitement.
On Xmas eve, George Bailey's guardian angel shows him all the lives he touched and how different life in his community would be had he never been born. Although George repeatedly sacrifices his dream to travel the world, he realizes "No man is a failure who has friends."
My dear friends at CatChannel, each one of you is precious, charming and kind. We make every attempt to make all members feel welcomed. You have the generous spirit of George Bailey in your hearts. You make our community a wonderful place. Thank you for being our friends.

♥ May your Christmas be merry as a song...
...and your heart be happy the whole year long! ♥

Hello dear Expresso, Angel Bobbles & family!!
Santa Paw came a little bit earlier this year and brought me and Sally a new scratcher with colorful feathers on it.
There are only a couple of more days left to Christmas Eve and we´re helping Mom to get things ready to celebrate.
As most of the times, I´ve been busy supervising everything. I´ve been specially curious about some bright little packages appearing under the tree. They have very interesting ribbons and I´ve been sniffing them. I even gave them a couple of headbonks too. MOL!

My parents and of all of us wish you a very merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year 2013!!

Sending you 1.000.000 sandpaper kisses and hugs...
With much love,
from your friends always,
Q. Lola & all the kitties from Buenos Aires!!

Come visit me, Simba & Mrs.Pucca, Queen Memories, Angels Blackie & Lady Lucy, Sally ♥ Felix, Queen Lola - VOTE MEEKO & A.BOOTZ COTM! & Willow & Charlie.

The Nutcracker Ballet
Mom has missed her furfriends these past two weeks. Sorry for the delayed response.

On December 17, 1892, The Nutcracker ballet premiered in St. Petersburg, Russia. Critics and audience thought it a failure; it was not an instant success.
The adaptation by Alexandre Dumas (1802–1870) was based on The Nutcracker and the Mouse King by Ernst Theodor Wilhelm Hoffman (1776-1822).
The score was composed by Peter Tchaikovsky, commissioned by mastermind choreographer Marius Petipa. Tchaikovsky died less than a year later.
The ballet was first performed in the United States in 1944. The Nutcracker has become a classic — many people consider it the most popular ballet in the world.
.......................*****.....................
Mom simply loved seeing her niece's ballet performances for all those special ten Decembers, meow-arvelous and magical memories to remember. Our adorable Sarah played different characters, beginning as a mouse, followed by a flower, a plum fairy and other dancers with enormous grace. How fast time goes, like a blink of an eye.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

♥ UPDATE: RESCUED PERSIANS "Betty Ann Gould, a Persian cat breeder & owner of a Springfield salon, is now cooperating with animal control in handing over the dozens of other cats that she kept at her Springfield, Oregon home.
Residents in Gould's Thurston neighborhood told KVAL News that they have seen around 45-60 cats at her home, whom they say were poorly cared for.
"Betty is being extremely cooperative with us right now & has agreed to slowly start to diminish the number of cats," said Brian Austin of Springfield Animal Control. "We can make sure they get into good homes."
On Monday, 12/03, police detained Gould for allegedly throwing a trash bag with 2 Persian cats trapped inside into the Willamette River. Both cats were rescued, & are safe & sound with Springfield Animal Control.
"It's not something that happens extremely often," said Austin. "Unfortunately when it does happen it's extremely hard to prove a lot of the time. This time because we had such a great witness we were able to link it to somebody."
Animal control says they're working with the Green Hill 1st Avenue Shelter, West Coast Dog & Cat Rescue, as well as the Persian Breed Rescue to try & find homes for the cats.
Gould is set to appear in court on 1/30/2013 to face misdemeanor charges of animal abuse & abandonment.
Police say that if Gould is convicted she could be sentenced to over a year in jail. By KVAL News"

♥ Mom was holding me this morning on the couch. Sassee 10605 got up on the back of the other couch that's by the window and Callie 239447 was laying on the couch cushion. When Sassee got on the back of the couch Callie jumped at her as she started swatting and they both hissed plus Sassee growled at Callie. Mom told them both to stop and be nice. Telling those two to be nice is a big joke!!!! Tehehehe!!!!

♥ It was a frosty morning here, but the sun did shine even though it stayed chilly. Mom went out in the back yard and scooped out the big 5X5 sand~litter box and any poo that was on the ground.

♥ Well, it has been quite chilly in the mornings and even in the day time it hasn't been all that warm!!!!

♥ TaumKat is starting to be aggressive towards most of the other outside kitties and mom won't stand for that. She told him to stop, but you know how that goes!!!! Mom figures it's probably the tumor under his tongue as he has been good with not chasing the kitties.
FYI: TaumKat and TC are two different cats!!!!

♥ Most of you have probably heard about the shooting @ Clackamas Town Centre Mall in Portland, Oregonon Tuesday afternoon. This is about 2 hours North of us. There were 3 dead (22 yr. gunman included) & several wounded. One teenage (15 yr) girl was shot several times, but nothing critical as she will survive.
