How We Met

I was outside in October and heard a terrible crying.I went in search of the source and found him under a pine tree. He was extremely skinny, scratches everywhere, a tight rope on
his neck that was embedded in his skin, and his tail was cut off-its only about 3 inches long and broken.The rope around his neck was so tight,he was extremely hoarse when he meowed. I fed him to chubby him up,cleaned all his wounds,dewormed him, flea treated him and built a kitty condo in the garage where its heated. He also has a heated bed and water bowl

6-20-12 update...I am now officially an indoor kitty!!! Woo-hoo!!! Ernie and I bonded instantly,and are best of buddies. I also get to sleep peacefully every night in bed with the family...MY family!

Thanks a bunch, Steve,
for helping me celebrate my Adoptiversary. Sure, I can spring for some beverage, how about some Mill Street Brewery Ginger Cat beer?

I sure can't believe it was eight years ago today I found my forever family and spent that very first night snuggled up with Mom & Dad. That day also made it possible to find this awesome CC family and my forever love Lady Dolly too. What a lucky tom I am!

My thoughts are definitely with my sweetheart's Mom today, this is the first special day since my campaign that Dolly's happy little face hasn't been here to celebrate with me. But I know that she's here in spirit, and her Mom can feel all the loving thoughts and prayers coming her way from all of us. -- Mike

Hi K Steve & Ernie, It's me, Talley,
COTM DAY 28
We have a short blog and a long poem today.
I wanted to mention another way to help shelters. It’s something that dad has been doing for quite a while, and we almost forgot to mention it to you. It’s easy, doesn’t cost anything and provides funding for almost any charity that you can think of.
Most of us order things from Amazon, and they have a program called Amazon Smile. You sign up, and then whenever you make a purchase a, small donation is made to the charity you selected.
The small amounts add up, our local “No More Homeless Pets’ told us that they receive almost two hundred dollars a month.
Just a thought, and now our poem....
WHY OWN A CAT
There's a danger you know.
You can't own just one, for the craving will grow.
There's no doubt they're addictive, wherein lies the danger
While living with lots, you'll grow poorer and stranger
One cat is not trouble, and two are so funny,
The third one is easy, the fourth one's a honey
The fifth is delightful, the sixth ones's a breeze.
You find you can live with a houseful, with ease.
So how 'bout another? Would you really dare?
They're really quite easy, but Oh Lord, the hair!
With cats on the sofa and cats on the bed,
And crates in the kitchen, its no bother, you said.
They're really no trouble, their manners are great.
What's just one more cat and one more little crate?
The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty.
The floor is all footprints, the furniture's dusty.
The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care?
Who minds a few noseprints and a little more hair?
So let's keep a kitten, you can always find room.
And a little more time for the dust cloth and broom.
There's hardly a limit to the cats you can add
the thought of a cutback, sure makes you feel sad.
Each one is special, so useful, so funny,
The food bill grows larger, you owe the vet money.
Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay,
Except other cat folks, who live the same way.
Your lawn has now died and your shrubs are dead, too.
Your weekends are busy, you're off with your crew.
There's cat food and vitamins, grooming and shots
And entries and travel and motels, which cost lots.
Is it worth it you wonder? Are you caught in a trap?
Then that favorite comes up and climbs in your lap.
His look says you're special and you know that you will
Keep all of the kittens in spite of the bill.

Late evening is awful, you scream and you shout
At the cats on the sofa, who refuse to get up.
The cats and the cat shows, the travel, the thrills
The work and the worry, the pressure, the bills.
The Whole thing seems worth it, the cats are your life.
They're charming and funny and offset the strife.
Your lifestyle has changed, things just won't be the same.
Yes, those cats are addictive and so's the cat game!

8.28 Last Long Drive Furiday in August
A grand day to Gripe... Complain... & Plant Daffodils for our Future
That' last one is what LuvBug took care of. 62 daffodils outside the Clubhouse. Just think of him when spring finally, if it ever, comes. And right along with him is our head complainer who is sure the world is Going to Pott, Angel Mallow with 57 gripes and depressed about the winter that comes before springtime daffodils.
Steve (53) present and waiting for the Apocalypse to play his keyboard and shake the cracker crumbs out of it for snacks.
What is it with you cats today?
Even Sandy with her 55 claims this is her last low score day. Has anyone whispered the "w" word to her?
Mimi (69) has been watching LuvBug plant all those bulbs because when they bloom winter will be over... somehow I am getting depressed typing up the golf commentary today...
Here's a reasonable complaint: GTt wants to know just why she cannot stay outside all night like she did last night. She's got barn duty with her 47.
Tucker celebrated (finally a cheerful cat) Bow Tie Day by wearing his under his double chins and is dancing 50 TGIF spins, too.
Bringing up the rear, BeeGee, true to herself is annoyed at smoke, dust, dogs and everything. So, what's mew? And her 68 nearly came in first so she could have bought the first round.
Here's the scores
1st- Mustang Mimi 69
2nd- BeeGee 68 and star complainer (besides Mallow and Steve)
3rd -Luvbug 62, thanks for the daffy dillys
Cart Barn and then locked in her house - Grounded GTt 47

Wrong!
Not that it ever surprises me when you are wrong. But you must have got up too early, or on the wrong side of the litter box. Or IN the litter box! heh heh... Anyway, doom boy, we DO have a COTD, although it might have escaped your vigilance. Maybe you were too busy counting your rolls of litter paper. Or kissing your mirror. :-)

Hi K. Steve & family!
Another hot day for us here- in the mid 90’s today and tomorrow and then it will start to cool down. Mom took Callie and me for our stroller walk early this morning. We had the trail to ourselves, when we saw a small doggie coming towards us, just trotting along by himself. He wasn’t barking and his tail was wagging. Mom was relieved to see he had a collar. Mom always carries a leash, just in case, so she parked our stroller off the trail and went to see if the doggie was friendly enough to let her leash him. He was and while Mom was trying to read his tag, we suddenly heard people yelling for “Bella!” Yep! The doggie’s tag said Bella on it with a phone number. Mom never gets the gender right. MOL! Bella was a girl! Any way, the people yelling were on the other side of the trail. The three mile loop trail is the one we always use. So Mom had to run down a hill (with Bella) to get to the creek and yell as loud as she could - “Bella is over here!” The owners were two teenagers who had let Bella off her leash while they walked. They said Bella never goes far, but apparently she must have seen a squirrel or something interesting. They thanked Mom and put Bella back on her leash. Callie and I waited patiently in our stroller, praying that no one would come by and cat-nap us! Mom assured us we were always within her eyesight. We had to turn around and hurry back home because it was warming up and Mom still needed to take our neighbor Abarna out for a stroll. Whew! What a morning! This will be a great day for cat napping.:)

Awww, look at you in your profile picture! We all want to give you a belly rub! Great snapshot!

Well my furiend, I finished my last round of antibiotics on the 23rd and right now I'm getting a reprieve from medicines for a month. Then I have to go back to have my urine retested. Mom is hoping this latest round of antibiotics worked and we're hoping my new prescription cat food will help. Keep your paws crossed!

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

“She hops expectantly into the sink. I turn on the tap for her; she laps without a glance in my direction, like a duchess so used to being ministered to that she no longer notices the servants and sees only a world where objects dumbly bend to her wishes, doors opening, faucets discharging cool water, delicious things appearing in her dish.” =^.^= - Peter Trachtenberg, On The Love of Cats and Persons

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

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

Love to you all,
Talley

Hi Steve!
Well, it WAS pretty funny to watch Mom tryin' to use my little bitty tools from my tool belt that fit around her wrist! Maybe that's why she had so much trouble gettin' the pesky little sleeve off the fixture. The one that you're just supposed to be able to twist off like THAT!! But I was havin' so much fun watchin' the process that I was not about to tell her!

Cake, huh? We might be able to manage that. But it's for the Grand Opening of the Sanctuary so ya can't touch till Saturday. Just to make sure, I am gettin' this here straightjacket out, just for you. See? It's even orange. -- MJ

Dude!

I see you're airing it out
Good. We all need a little airing now and then. So, it's Monkey Boy Day. Should we celebrate with a bunch of bananas? You can wear your Tarzan suit. I'll just hide in the trees and pretend I'm interested in the whole idea. WHEN is there going to be a Healthy Bod Day?? I know, I know, we DO have Bat Appreciation Day, but I want Stump Butt Day. Oh wait, that'll involve you again. Can't invent Orange Toe day either. I'll let Mr. Thoughtful figure it out while I'm stretching this loincloth.

Okay
she fell for it...
Full fridge, hot tub, down bed with pillows -- fluff daily by the "staff". Purrhaps we can select a couple of cute little kittens working their way through castle cleaning school?
They also bring up snacks when I want them for my creative juices to flow.
One downer that has appeared on the horizon: Talley suggests that I teach a writing class to kittens!! Oh no. I hate those little things. GTt broke me of the 'cuteness"crp of those little home wreckers.
So, as my PR and Purrsonal assistant (PA) I may need you to handle the final detail in the contract before I press a paw to it.
It is already the 27th and her coronation day is looming...
please HELP?
Please be specific as to what is supposed to be in the fridge. So far they will install an empty on.
Should we have an indoor BBQ?

enjoying this 3-day break from the humidity which starts to build back in this weekend, but still be pretty nice mid 80s not to bad like the upper 80s and lower 90s with feels like upper 90s and lower 100s and with kids going back to school the rest likely will have shorter days as some school still don't have air conditioning. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Put the shotgun down, O.J.,
it's STEVE!! Great to see ya! We've m ... m ... MISSED you (but my aim is gettin' better)

Mom was bouncin' around today going "I rock & ROLL!" after she managed to fix a surprise explosion of the tub/shower diverter this morning. It took her forever to get the mechanism apart, even though the guy on Google did the whole repair in like 5 minutes. The guy on Google did not have 31 years of hard water on the threads, mol. I think that's the explanation, Mom's been too close to the Liquid Wrench fumes.

She's been keepin' really busy cleanin', sortin' and tossin' in the basement. She's findin' all kinds of junk and a few treasures she forgot she had. Now don't go gettin' any ideas about what she's gonna do with all that space she's creatin', I don't think your air mattress would fit and I KNOW there ain't enough ventilation! -- MJ

Hey K Steve and Ernie!
Hi! Thanks so much for pouncing over with the delightful Happy Birthday wishes! We are having a virtual fiesta with BBQ salmon and yellowfin tuna over at the Lily Pad today! Please enjoy yourselves and thanks so much for the Buckeye beads and pom poms- - they will come in handy as we cheer for our neighboring team until, what? 2021? MOL

It’s hard for mom to believe I am turning six years old today - - she still thinks of me as a kitten - - the years have certainly flown by and we have seen many changes come, too. I am so thankful for my furriends on CC and that our community is still together!

Let’s take a moment in quiet reflection for our dear furriends and their pawrents, hurting, ill or in need, and say a little blessing, then enjoy some BBQ and a big piece of cake!

Have a super evening! Big hugs from the ❀LILY PAD❀

8/26/15 - The Dog Ate My Popsicle!
I finally got my blogger to take a break from solving the plumbing problems of the world … or at least the house, to get busy on my golf summary. Yeesh, with all this empowerment in the air you’d think it was Womens’ Equality Day or something.

Luvbug tells us it’s also Toilet Paper Day and National Dog Day. 60 (=6) dogs please, with mustard! Oh, they mean fur furry drooling kind of dogs. Whoops. What DO we do with those? Mallow shoots a 53 (=8) and says that we can blame them for eating the toilet paper. Brilliant plan, Mallow, except we don’t have a dog.

Steve is here! And he chooses to celebrate Cherry Popsicle Day since with a 54 (=9) he is freezing like one. Sandy is celebrating Water Fun Day with a 70 (=7). Mimi is spitting 72 (=9) cherry pits at the dog and has her own take on Womens’ Equality Day. She thinks it’s giving femalekind a demotion!

Tucker watches his catty shred 57 (-12) rolls of TP and I sure hope HE has a dog to blame it on! Gracie T-t has done a 51 (=6) page study of popsicles and she has to wonder where Mimi got those cherry pits from. While BeeGee also brings us a 54 (=9) and a resounding chorus of The Dog Did It! Did what? Who cares? Whatever it was, the dog did it.

The results are in
1st – Luvbug and Gracie T-t, tied with 6
2nd – Sandy with 7
3rd – Mallow with 8

Now I think I’m going to try one of those cherry popsicles before someone’s dog gets them.

Hi K Steve & Ernie, It's me, Talley,
COTM DAY 26

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

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


And now today, something a little different:

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

And a poem

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


I love you all,
Talley

Oh what a joy
To be Chocolate Boy, on Toilet Paper Day. How many days ARE there dedicated to you and your. um. "special talents"? We just had Wind day and Vesuvius day! And of course there's Unusual Instrument Day, not to mention all the various chocolate days. You must have been really convincing to the Holiday Committee. Or else paid mega bribes. I don't know what you could have offered as a bribe. Maybe a framed photo of you kissing your mirror?

You missed your chance at the kissy thing. That was yesterday. *whew* Looks like we both dodged that one! Oh yeah, we definitely need the giant economy pack of TP. Wouldn't have it any other way. Are you sure we can carry enough of the Stevooter? I was thinking more of a medium U-Haul!

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

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

http://www.alleycat.org/EveryKittyEveryCity

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

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

And now, a funny poem for today:

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

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

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

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

Hi K Steve & Ernie, It's me, Talley,
COTM DAY 23

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

8. Volunteer, if you can!

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

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

Nothing new here, but just a reminder.

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

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

I love you all, dear friends,
Talley

8.21 Senior Long Drive Golf Day
Hey Steve... You have a really cute tush!

ALERT WARNING: Caturday is Take the Cat to the Vet Day! ****Hide Hide! ***

Somehow I got here to comment on today's recap.
Here it is...
LuvBug started off praising and thanking the firefighters with 55 pawclaps. And 30% less fire! *Coff Coff* smokey.
Happy Angel mallow was doing 57 cool dancing turns all over her house and basement. Whoa!
Sandy and her Angel counted 72 clouds mixed with stars... beautiful.
Winner of the day with a 76 score, mimi skips the spumoni and goes right to Engine's Roach Coach.
And then there's N-Gin with 70 Stinkbug Saki Shooters and Layered Lizards-- No Spumoni.
GT-t invited me to Senior Golf Day as the oldest cat she knows. I am a non-golfer but did my best with 59.
Tucker had an open window holiday and let his 57 in to air the place out. No window broken in this score.
Well, it's confirmed that NO CAT wants Spumoni on Spumoni Ice Cream Day. Okay, Bee Gee you have the last mew about it with your 67 bits and pieces snacks taken from the sofa cushions. That's desperate!
She thanks the NZ and OZ firefighters making the smoke in her area but reducing the flames... so far..

Winners and Loser:
1st The mudcat mimi with big 76
2nd with 72 stars in her eyes- Sandy & Angels
3rd mimi's furiend, N-Gin with 70

Hi K Steve, & Family,
COTM DAY 21

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

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

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

By Stacey Olner

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Love to all of you,
Talley

Today is the day....
that the crawling furless will arrive! He'll be here through Sunday too so I'm a very happy kitty. Too bad my fursisters will get their tails in a fluff about it though...MOL!
I'm sorry I haven't been able to do any meowing at you this week but mom has had a very busy week preparing for his arrival. Since we don't normally have such a small furless around too often she went shopping to make sure we had enough things he could eat & drink (that he likes)...plus she had to get an extra security gate to keep him from tumbling down our family room steps or digging in our litterboxes. Sigh...that means I'll have to jump over one to get to my favorite food dish too. Hmmm...maybe I'll just eat all the food in mom/dad's bedroom instead of trying to get my old self over a gate. It will upset Trixie a little but she'll get over it...& can jump the gate a lot better than I can..MOL!
Mom told Fluffinella she'd better get her romping out of her system since she's terrified of 'the crawling monster' & will retreat to her safe zone under the bed until he's asleep. The rest of my fursisters will wander through to peek, but since they're used to him going home the same day it will shock them when he doesn't leave...MOL!
We're all doing great & are really enjoying this morning because mom was able to open the windows so a cool breeze could blow in. The past few days had been really humid so we're thrilled to get a break from it even if it's probably short lived.
Today is also my adopty day...woohoo!! I've been a member of my furever family for 10 years today! My first 4 years of life were spent in another house where mom said I apparently didn't like the people too much since they said I was nasty & would bite. HMPH....I don't have a mean bone in my body so mom said they must have done something to make me unhappy. Maybe that's why they took my 3 fursisters with them when they moved & tossed me outside. I was terrified when that happened but luckily the nice neighbor made sure I was fed/watered until she could talk to mom about taking me. I was scared of mom & my new house for quite a while after I got here too but Zaboo helped calm me down & we became inseparable until his crossing. I took his passing really hard & wouldn't eat much for several days but mom/dad knew just what to do to help me snap out of my grief. Now I'm the official 'paws of justice' in the house & proud of it...MOL!
Well I've got to run for now but hope you can stop in to help me celebrate today. While you're here you can rub against furless so you can find out if your reflexes are good enough to get out of his reach...MOL!

Big paw hugs to all,
