How We Met

When I was nearly eleven years old, my first dad lost his job and house, so he turned me over to Bengal Cat Rescue. When I arrived at my foster mom's home, I wasn't sure if I wanted to continue living, so I quit eating for three days. My foster mom convinced me that life was still worth living, though, and I started eating again. After a year had passed, and no one had adopted me, my foster mom decided to adopt me herself, because we loved each other so much. She didn't want me to go through the grief of losing a parent again

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

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

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

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

HAVE A SUPER DUPER DAY! LUVYA A.ELMIE

HEY KAOMI & BENGALS!
WELL, TO CONTINUE ON WITH MY BACK STORY...I HAD 8 WONDERFUL YEARS AS AN INSIDE KITTY. ONE DAY I GUESS MY FIV JUST CAUGHT UP WITH ME CUZ MY
FACE LOOKED THIN, I LOOKED LIKE I HAS LOST WEIGHT AND IN THE MORNING MOM HAD A FEELING. I CURLED UP ON MOMS LAP AND IN THE MORNING WHEN
I WAS SURE SHE WOKE UP, I LICKED HER NOSE, TOLD HER I LOVED HER, THEN PEACEFULLY WENT TO SLEEP. I WOKE UP IN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE! THE
RAINBOW BRIDGE! MOM SAYS THAT EVERY NEW BEGINNING COMES FROM SOME OTHER BEGINNINGS END. WE DON'T LIKE TO BE SAD WHEN ONE OF US PASSES,
AS WE HAD THE BEST LIFE EVER AND OUR LIVES SHOULD BE CELEBRATED FOR THE MANY YEARS, NOT MOURNED FOR ONE FINAL DAY. I WILL TELL YOU A LITTLE
ABOUT MY PINTO ISLAND AND HOW IT CAME ABOUT. Y'SEE, WHEN WE JOINED CC IN 2009, I FELL MADLY IN LOVE WITH POUNCER. THAT WAS MAX'S SISTER AND
GRACIE WAS SMITTEN WITH MAX. SHE CHASED HIM LIKE MAD FOR A MONTH BEFORE HE GAVE IN, BUT POUNCER FELT THE SAME ABOUT ME AS I FELT ABOUT HER.
WE GOT MARRIED IN DEC.2010. SHE BECAME AN ANGEL KITTY NOT LONG AFTER I DID, SO WE ARE TOGETHER IN ETERNITY. JUST LIKE THE BLUE OYSTER CULT SONG
"DON'T FEAR THE REAPER"....ROMEO AND JULIET....TOGETHER FOR ETERNITY! THAT'S US! ANYHOO, FOR VALENTINES DAY, 2011, SHE FOUND THIS HEARTSHAPED
ISLAND IN THE BLUE CARIBBEAN AND GAVE IT TO ME! I NAMED IT "PINTO ISLAND". AND WHY PINTO ISLAND YOU MIGHT ASK?

VERY SIMPLE! IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY AT MY PHOTO, YOU'LL SEE THAT I WAS HALF ORANGE, HALF WHITE, NOT REALLY A "COW" KITTY, BUT A PINTO KITTY! I WAS,
AM...WILL ALWAYS BE MY POUNCIES "PINTO BOY". AND HERE'S A FUN LITTLE FACT. WE WENT TO THE GREAT GOOGLEMEISTER AND FOUND OUT THERE REALLY IS
A REAL LIVE PINTO ISLAND! IT'S IN MOBILE ALABAMA AND IT'S A SHIPYARD AND PART OF THE ALABAMA PORT AUTHORITY. IT'S NOT NEARLY AS NICE AS OUR PINTO
ISLAND, WHICH IS LUSH, GREEN AND TROPICAL. WE HOLD OUR MONTHLY FULL MOON PAWTIES DOWN THERE. WHEN GRACIE WAS QUEEN IN JULY 2012, SHE CHOSE
TO BE QUEEN ON PINTO ISLAND RATHER THAN IN THE CASTLE. I WILL DO THE SAME, AND HAVE A SAND CASTLE. WE HAVE ALL OUR PAWTIES HERE ON THE PINTO,
AND FRIDAY NIGHTS AFTER MHL HOCKEY, WE HAVE "POKER ON THE PINTO". I WILL BE SHIPPING IN A BIG BOATLOAD OF PINTO PONIES FOR OUR RIDING PLEASURE! SOME WILL BE SHETLAND PINTO PONIES, FOR THE KITTENS, FROM SHETLAND ISLAND, SCOTLAND. AND WE WILL BE LEARNING MORE FUN FACTS ABOUT ALL THINGS
PINTO....SUCH AS PINTO PONIES, PINTO BEANS (WHICH ARE A FAVORITE OF OURS), PINTO KITTIES, PINTO MUSIC & DANCES AND THAT FAMOUS INDIAN ACTRESS
FROM "SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRES", THE BEAUTIFUL FREIDA PINTO! THESE FUN FACTS WILL BE COMING IN THE DAYS TO COME.

SO TODAY WE ARE HAVING A FUN FIESTA HERE ON PINTO ISLAND. OUR MOONPIE OF THE DAY IS PINTO BEAN MOONPIES WITH PINTO MILKSHAKES. AND THE MOON
TOON IS "MOON OVER MIAMI". THE CELEBRATIONS ARE......COTD JAZPYR KNIGHT #10428H

BIRTHDAY......HOPE #260912

HAVE A FABULOUS DAY! LUVYA A.ELMIE ♥

Well, I have been lying in Rhaevyn's crate for a mice little nap since she's not using it xcept for when she wants a drink of water or has to use her potty box. Momma keeps telling me I shouldn't be there cuz Rhaevyn will swat me and possibly hurt me, but do you think I would listen? Nooooo!

Well, you can guess what happened Sunday, right? Yes, Rhaevyn had to go potty and pounced up in the crate which startled me and WHAM! She swatted me a good one! You know that momma said to me? "Sylvr, I told you so"! Well, momma did care and tried to console me then went and told Rhaevyn she should try to get a long with us Girls! I'm ok and never got hurt!

Momma got woke up by Whyskrs #10378 about 4:15 this morning cuz he hacked up a big furrrball in the bathroom then Rhoamin #2921 got a little barfy a bit later and needed momma to hold him.

Momma watered the plants & flowers in the front yard with Miracle-Gro attached to the hose then she hand sprayed the yard with water as she put Scott's Turf Weed & Feed on it Sunday morning. After that momma went to WalMart and paid a few bills.

I guess I best let JAZPYR #10428 do his COTD Thank yous possibly Tuesday afternoon. More Celebrations to come in May!

Thanks, Kaomi !
Maybe if we mention it to enough kitties, their catmoms might contact each other and see what days work out for everyone involved. Best to set it up with plenty of advance time.

Mom had a great time the last time out. Might be more fun to do it again!

HI Kaomi! It's Neelix!
Yeah, our mom would like to meet up with the Bay Area catmoms again, too. Now that the weather is getting better...(uh except for today..MOL ), we can try to plan it again.

Whiskers' mom is down in SoCal this week, but once she gets back, let's give it another try. If your mom knows of any other moms in your area, maybe she can let them know, and get some feedback. Our mom isn't on FB, so that makes it a little harder as well. But, hey, our mom is all for it! She had lots of fun the last time.

♥ Hey, It's me again, WHYSKRS!

♥ I thought that you would like my cool pose! MOL! I like to sit like that alot! Mom and dad thinks I look pretty cool, too! MOL!

♥ Mom cleaned up this kitty that she had stuffed away in the storage shed for a couple years. She used to use it for the outside kitties as their waterer til she learned not to use plastics and such for our food and waterers. Anyways, she brought it inside and put it on the front room floor for us to check out so that's just what I started doing then Rhoamin 2921 came over to see it then I got in it and laid down! Can you guess what came next? Yeppers, the Pawpurrazzi's at it again! Mom took three pictures of me in it and now you can see me, too, in my picture gallery! MOL!

♥ So some of you were wondering what kind of bulbs mom got from Michigan Bulb! Well, she got 15 Cool Breeze Freesia Blend bulbs; 3 Summer Cheer Daffodil bulbs; 3 Switzerland Begonia tubers; 3 Passion Mixed Begonia tubers and 1 Independence Hosta plant. She's suppose to get the rest next week which is Oxalis Triangularis (Wood Sorrel) and Mixed Ranuculus. Mom calls those "Paper Roses" cuz that's what they look like to her!

Glad we could help you celebrate your birthday! Glad to hear Snowy is doing better. Praying for a complete recovery! CC is extremely slow again tonight! Has been for over two weeks! Takes so long for the pages to change Mom could get up and cook a meal while she is waiting! Very frustrating! Not sure if it is CC or Mom's computer but she is not going to get far like this!

We were very happy to stop by on your birthday,
Kaomi! Most of us understand that many kitties have working parents and can't always answer blogs or send out thank yous right away. We are just glad that you had a good day.

I hope that everything works out well for your foster Snowy and that Mumbai will soon have a new family. Hugs, KC and the Zoo Crew

Dear Kaomi
Thanks for the nice visit. I have to take daily prednisone for recurring IBD, and that's no easy thing! Mom can't get the pill down me alone, so she had the meds compounded into a liquid. Now I fight that so bad, she can't get the dropper anywhere near my mouth. She's putting it in my food, but it doesn't fool me. Some days I take it to humor her, but other days I try to outwait her and yell for something else:)
Guess what, Kaomi? You gave me vote #35,000! Mom doesn't usually pay attention to that, but she happened to notice. Love those round numbers:)
Stay well. Hope your sibs are doing well. Love, Gin Gin

You're welcome, Kaomi
We enjoyed coming to celebrate your birthday with you, it was quite a bash, wasn't it? We hope Snowy is doing better soon, Mallow was some of those little Prednisone pills these days, but they're just tiny and she takes them really well most of the time. Mom is really, really thankful for that! -- Mike & family

Hi Kaomi, have a great day. Thanks for your support, sweetie.

HUMAN STORIES: A TALE (OR IS THAT TAIL?) OF LIFE EVENTS FROM THE CATS PERSPECTIVES.

"One thing I've learned, and I've lived here some time, is that my human person, isn't very reliable. She doesn't even get it, that I'm much smarter then she is!" pouted Skitzy, my smaller female tortoiseshell cat.

The human counterpart of this two cat household, that being me, inquired about Skitzy's current mood. "Skitzy, You don't seem to be as happy as you once were? You don't seem to be your sweet little loving self. What's going on with you?" I asked her, hoping I could get to the cause of this change in her personality.

"You're the one you brought in that big black bully brute of a Cat named Cole! Though you talked to me about it before you brought him here, I've suffered greatly since he's lived here. I think you love him more than you love me!"

"Oh Skitzy! How can you say that? I brought Cole in because I thought you needed cat company after Misty died. I had hoped Cole would be a good cat companion and a playmate for you."

"Well you thought wrong didn't you?" Skitzy got that haughty and hurt look on her face. "You've seen the way he goes after me? The minute I move, that big brute, Cole is all over me, like peanut butter sticks to jelly. How can you ignore the keening noises I've made when he aggressively goes after me?"

"Skitzy I haven't been ignoring you. Those noises are very distressing to me. That's why I started my Cat separation system, and my cat rotation system." One cat gets confined to a bedroom, while the other cat freely gets to roam the rest of the place. Then it rotates and they change places. The Cat that was previously out, gets confined to a different room, and the one who was previously confined gets the run of the rest of the place. It would be so much simpler if I could have built a cat revolving door. "I've done that to protect you from Cole's aggressiveness. My cat rotation system, was to make it fair to both of you!" I pleaded with Skitzy.

"You call this set up fair?" Skitzy asked in protest. "I get confined much more then Cole does. I used to volunteer to go into the room I get confined in, or didn't you ever notice? But why should I go in there voluntarily now, after his last vicious attack on me?"

Everything she said was true. After the last time I tried to reintroduce them to each other, Skitzy got the worst of it from Cole. She became traumatized and wouldn't come out from under my bed. Even opening a can of wet cat food, did nothing to entice her out as it had in the past. (coninuted tomorrow)

Love & Kisses,
Lady Dolly

Wander With Whiskers – June 17-Hearst Castle
San Luis Obispo to Cambria
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Check out time at the Madonna Inn is later than the usual hotel. But then the Madonna Inn has been anything but usual! We’ll have time for breakfast & a game of tennis on the pink tennis courts, or just relax & stroll the grounds.

Back aboard the Royal Train to continue up the coast of CA. We’ll enjoy brunch as our train glides out of the depot & begins its journey to the town of Cambria. Here we will detrain to the waiting Feline Motor Coaches & head to San Simeon, home of Hearst Castle. If we’re lucky, we might catch an odd glimpse of a herd of zebras grazing alongside the highway. These are descendants of animals brought to California for William R. Hearst’s personal zoo. But don’t worry; they are well cared for by the Hearst Castle grounds men.

William Randolph Hearst, an American newspaper publisher who built the nation’s largest newspaper chain, told architect Julia Morgan that he wanted to built "a little something" on the CA coast. Three decades later, Casa Grande (commonly called Hearst Castle) crowned La Cuesta Encantada, Hearst's "Enchanted Hill" above tiny San Simeon. It's a 165-room Moorish castle with 127 acres of gardens, terraces, pools & walkways, furnished with Spanish & Italian antiques & art, flanked by three large guesthouses. In its heyday, Hearst Castle had a zoo, tennis courts & two magnificent swimming pools.

With a personal collection of ancient art, sculptures, furniture, relics & more, William Randolph Hearst amassed a collection that still rivals museums today, and used almost every square inch of the hilltop California estate to showcase it all.

Today Hearst Castle is a State Historical Monument, and we can all enjoy a glimpse into the Hearst's opulent lifestyle.

We’ll be taking the Hearst Castle Twilight Tour where costumed docents literally bring the Castle to life! Warm lighting & staff in 1930s costumes - women sipping martinis over their card game, reporters typing their days' stories in their bedrooms & lovers strolling the grounds - bring the massive house alive. We’ll wind our way through the Casa Grande’s social rooms, guest accommodations, the Office & Mr. Hearst’s own private Gothic Suite.

Hearst lived & entertained at San Simeon with his long-time girlfriend, actress Marion Davies. Their guests included Hollywood stars, politicians & dignitaries such as Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable, Greta Garbo, Charles Lindbergh & Winston Churchill. On the Hearst Castle night tour, as visitors, we can pretend we've received an invitation to come to "the ranch."

Unfortunately, there’s no restaurant at the Hearst Castle. We have snacks onboard the Feline Motor coaches to tide us over until we’re back on the train, where our exceptional fine dining awaits us.

Please Vote Serj & Leah #196985 COTD Mon 6/17
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.

Hi Kaomi, hope you're having a pawsome Caturday, sweetie.xoxoxoxox

Lilybug continued.......

That evening, as we were getting the cats' dinner ready, we went to check on her under the bed but - no Lily! We looked everywhere but no luck. She had hidden herself too well for us to find. We continued getting dinner ready, fed the rest of the cats, and just hoped Lily would come out on her own.

Later, as we were cleaning up after dinner, we walked into the kitchen, and there was Lily, calmly eating her dinner! She stopped eating and stared at us, ready to run if we came near her. Deciding it was better to err on the side of caution rather than show her how happy we were she was out and eating, we ignored Lily and went about our business. Lily continued to eat but kept a watchful eye on us.

After a few days of treatment, Lily was remarkable better. Her rash was clearing up, she didn't fuss at her ear much, and was even coming to us for snuggles and pets again. We were so relieved there are no words to describe it!

After this experience, we have decided that, should Lily need to go to the vet again, we will start with the St. John's Wort right away, preferably before we put her in the car. And, if it is nothing life threatening, we will start with herbal remedies first! We never, ever want our Lily to experience such stress and anxiety again!

There are no holistic vets in our area but we have been fortunate to find one that has been willing to consult with us over the phone and by email. She recommended a book called "The Veterinarians Guide to Natural Remedies for Cats" (which you can purchase on Amazon. com) and we have all read it cover to cover and find it to be an excellent resource.

The liquid St. John's Wort can be purchased at most health food stores. Neem Plus can be purchased from Ayush Herbs and the Phytogel from Tomer Labs. We have not been able to find the Neem Plus or the Phytogel anywhere else. In fact, when we inquired about them at several health food/natural remedy shops, they had no idea what we were talking about so if you want to get them for your cats, we recommend simply ordering them over the internet.

If you are a believer in holistic remedies for your cats, we highly recommend getting the book or, even better, finding a holistic vet near you. We firmly believe that, because she is so sensitive, modern medicine almost killed our beautiful Lilybug. But because we were open to alternative methods of treatment, herbal medicine brought our baby back to us. She is as happy and healthy as she ever was and back to enjoying her snuggle and pet lap time on a daily basis! The End.

Love & Kisses,
Lady Dolly

Lily usually loves baby food and it's the perfect way to give any type of medicine to a cat and avoid the stress of forcing a pill or liquid down their throats. Because of Lily's sensitivities, we decided upon St. John's Wort to calm her. St. John's Wort is an herb used to treat depression in people. It has been shown to calm anxiety in highly stressed cats very quickly, often within a day or 2, with no side-effects. For Lily, it seemed the ideal choice.

We got some St. John's Wort in the liquid form to make it easier to measure out the proper dosage, mixed it in a tablespoon of chicken baby food, spooned it into the lid of the baby food jar (fearing that a normal size dish would scare her more). Then, using a stick, we pushed it as close to her as we could, backed away slowly, left the room completely, and prayed Lily would eat it.
A couple of hours later we checked on her and were elated - she had eaten the baby food! That evening, we repeated the process with dose number 2. The next morning, while giving her dose number 3, Lily meowed more normally and appeared visibly calmer. Later that day she came out from under the bed, used the litter box and ate some actual food! We were alive with hope!

The following day, it was time to start treating her injury and infections. We added some Neem Plus to the baby food/St. John's Wort mixture. Neem Plus is an Ayurvedic herbal combination that features Neem which is an Indian herb that has antifungal, antiviral, and antibiotic properties. Neem has long been used to treat a variety of skin conditions. Neem Plus is available in a liquid form specifically for use in pets and is completely safe for cats.

The final step was to apply Phytogel to her rash and ear injury. Phytogel is a combination herbal gel that also contains Neem as well as Cedarwood oil. When applied topically, it has superior disinfecting and soothing action and reduces itching and irritation as well as any cortisone cream. Phytogel is formulated especially for pets, is safe for cats, and because of the icky taste, the cat doesn't lick it off
We had to restrain Lily to apply the Phytogel and the second we finished and let her go, she shot from the room like a bullet and hid again! We weren't too worried because running and hiding after any type of treatment is normal behavior for many cats but especially for Lily! Still, we kept an eye on her, talked reassuringly to her, and hoped she would forgive us enough to come out for dinner.

That evening, as we were getting the cats' dinner ready, we went to check on her under the bed but - no Lily! We looked everywhere but no luck. She had hidden herself too well for us to find. We continued getting dinner ready, fed the rest of the cats, and just hoped Lily would come out on her own.
Continued tomorrow.
Love & Kisses,
Dolly

Wander With Whiskers – June 14 –San Luis Obispo
Another Day In San Luis Obispo
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
After a great breakfast at the Madonna Inn, the female kitties all wanted to take a peek at the famous (top ten in the world) tom’s restroom. The girls had heard a trip to San Luis Obispo wouldn’t be complete without visiting the tom’s room at the Madonna Inn! In it, the urinals look like caves with waterfalls, which is activated when you break a beam of light. Yep, that's it!

Walk to Morro Bay -
There’s no better way to spend the day than out on the incredible estuary in beautiful Morro Bay. Strolling the bayfront, fishing, kayaking or simply sitting on the dock…it’s all here waiting for us. Morro Bay, along California’s Central Coast, is among the most visually spectacular communities in America. This is where we will start. It has a rich early history that stretches back to the adventures of the Chumash & Salinian Native Americans & visits by Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo & the Manila Galleons of the 16th Century. Here we can see the famous “Morro Rock.” Morro Rock is also sometimes called the “Gibraltar of the Pacific.” It is the last of a line of long-extinct volcanoes formed about 23 million years ago, which include nine peaks ranging from San Luis Obispo to Morro Bay. Morro Rock is a State Historic Landmark, a bird sanctuary & home to nesting Peregrine Falcons. It is therefore closed to any climbing or disturbance.

Now let’s go on a driving tour. Our motor coaches will pick us up at Morro Bay. The uncrowded roads & stunning views in & around San Luis Obispo make for incredible scenic drives. We’ll get a mixture of vineyards, curving mountain roads, and coastal views driving up US 101 & loop back to San Luis Obispo via Highway 1 through cattle pastures & farmland. We’ll travel the scenic back roads into downtown Arroyo Grande. Stroll the historic Village, discover turn-of-the-century Victorians surrounding Santa Manuela Schoolhouse, and cross the suspended swinging bridge — the only one of its kind in California.

Let’s end our day with a visit to some wineries. Wine tasting should be a perfect blend of a great experience & great wine, and that’s just what we’ll get as we enjoy the hand-crafted bottlings of San Luis Obispo’s wine region. The moderate climate of the verdant, sunlit Edna Valley just outside town allows for an extended growing season, which give local wines lush, distinct flavors sure to please any palate. My particular favorite winery is called Talley Vineyard Wines! Enjoy sweeping views of the Rincon Vineyard & the fields of Talley Farms from the tasting room. The vineyard is just minutes away from Lopez Lake, a great place for an evening picnic. An ideal setting for tasting great Pinot Noir & Chardonnay.

Time to head back to The Inn.

(Lilybug continued)
Lily is a very sensitive cat when it comes to modern medicine. We no longer vaccinate her as the vaccines make her very sick and she is unable to tolerate them. We are quite lucky however, because she has never been sick - until recently. We watched our beautiful, sweet, affectionate "Bug" turn into a cowering, fearful, sickly cat almost overnight!

It all started one day when we noticed she was bleeding slightly from her ear flap. We figured she had been scratched by one of the other cats. We cleaned the ear, applied a bit of antibiotic ointment and called it good.

Over the next couple of days, we noted that her ear kept bleeding off and on and she kept scratching at it. We assumed that she had another injury deeper inside the ear. The whole ear was turning red and it had some drainage crusted in it. We knew the wound was becoming infected. It was time for a trip to the vet.

The trip to the vet was uneventful and we found out she did indeed have a wound deep inside the ear that needed treatment. She was sedated, the ear wound irrigated and cleaned, antibiotics flushed through the ear, and after she woke up, we brought her back home.

She didn't eat dinner that night but we didn't worry about it too much. After all, she'd had a stressful day! We figured she just needed some time to rest and recover and that by morning, she would be her old self again. Boy! Were we wrong!

The next morning, she was in the kitchen with us but still didn't eat breakfast. The vet had given us antibiotic drops for her ear so we instilled the first drop. Lily shot out of the room and hid under the bed for the rest of the day. She was so far back, we couldn't reach her. She never came out to eat or use the litter box. Now, we started to worry!

For 2 days, Lily hid under the bed and wouldn't come out for anything. Using a flashlight, we could see her ear had been draining and was crusted up with dried blood and drainage. What was worse, she had developed a red,crusty rash around her chin and along her jaw, her coat was dull and listless, she cried plaintively whenever we looked at her, and she had a pained and frightened look on her face all the time. Our poor Lily was in trouble!

We knew we had to act! Lily's life was in danger! If the stress didn't get her, infection and shock surely would! But, what to do? Dragging her out from under the bed and forcing her back to the vet was out of the question. The stress of that would be too much. Yet, she had to get treatment. After much discussion and a few phone calls, we decided upon a course of action.

First priority was to de-stress her. Her exceedingly high level of anxiety would interfere with any sort of treatment but yanking her from under the bed would only increase that anxiety. We had to get some anti-anxiety medicine in her to start the calming process so, even though she wasn't eating, we decided to try to give her some baby food anyway. (Continued tomorrow).

Wander With Whiskers – June 13 –San Luis Obispo
Welcome To San Luis Obispo
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
The Feline Castle Train takes us to the charming old city of San Luis Obispo. Founded in 1772, the city boasts numerous historic inns and theaters, and even a rare commercial building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Whether to soak in the ambience or some of the delicious wines produced in nearby Edna Valley, we'll find that San Luis Obispo is a perfect place to end the southern part of our California Coast journey.

San Luis Obispo was named the happiest city in America by author and researcher Dan Buettner. A weekend in this charming and scenic town, situated halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles and nestled in the Santa Lucia Mountain Range, can be whatever you want it to be: a relaxing getaway or a buzz of activity. For serenity, pack a lunch and head north or south to picnic at one of the dozens of picturesque wineries. Head west for great beaches, perfect for a leisurely swim. For a dose of history, visit the birthplace and heart of this quaint town: the beautiful adobe-brick Mission San Luis Obispo. Kittens will revel in the plentiful fun activities, such as the Charles Paddock Zoo & the Morro Bay Aquarium. For a laugh or a gasp, stop in at the outrageously decorated Madonna Inn, where nothing in the garish décor is consistent except for an abundance of the color pink. All are welcome for a peek inside the lobby's men's room for more interior design surprises. Don’t laugh too hard because this is the hotel where we will be staying!

For over 50 years the charm of the Madonna Inn has been one of California’s landmark attractions and this will be our home for a few nights. The Inn offers very unique rooms, each decorated differently to suit many individual tastes...rock rooms, waterfall showers, rock fireplaces, European fixtures, and fine furnishings to name a few. Last year they added horseback riding, two pink tennis courts and a winter ice skating rink. The owner of the Inn said, "Anybody can build one room and a thousand like it. It's more economical. I want visitors to come in with a smile and leave with a smile. It's fun." Aiming to cater to a range of tastes, rooms were given unusual names such as the Love Nest, Old Mill, Kona Rock, Irish Hills, Cloud Nine, Just Heaven, Hearts & Flowers, Rock Bottom, Austrian Suite, Cabin Still, Old World Suite, Caveman Room, Elegance, Daisy Mae, Safari Room, Highway Suite, Jungle Rock, American Home & Bridal Falls to name a few. This should be a lot of fun!

So let’s settle into our rooms & meet for a nice dinner at the Madonna Inn’s Gold Rush Steak House. Tomorrow we’ll explore what San Luis Obispo has to offer.

Wander With Whiskers – June 12–Queen Mary
Aboard the Queen Mary -
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Before we leave, we must tour this fabulous floating hotel. Let’s all grab some pastry from the Starboard Bakery and enjoy our coffee while strolling the Promenade Deck before we begin.

On May 27, 1936, the Queen Mary departed from Southampton, England embarking on her maiden voyage. The Queen Mary had set a new benchmark in transatlantic travel, which the rich and famous considered as the only civilized way to travel. She quickly seized the hearts and imaginations of the public on both sides of the Atlantic, representing the spirit of an era known for its elegance, class and style. The increasing popularity of air travel helped signal the end of an era for the Queen Mary. By 1965 the entire Cunard fleet was operating at a loss and they decided to retire and sell the legendary Queen Mary.

Let’s go on the “Her Finest Hour: A WWII Tour,” for an in-depth look at the role the Queen Mary played in helping the Allied Forces win the Great War. Nicknamed the “Grey Ghost” after receiving a hauntingly stark paint job, the ship’s impressive speed and size made it an ideal troop hauler often carrying as many as 15,000 men in a single voyage.

With such a varied and intriguing past it’s not surprising that the Queen Mary has been voted one of the Top 10 Most Haunted Places in America. In fact, some say the Queen Mary is one of the most haunted places in the world with as many as 150 known spirits lurking upon the ship. Over the past 60 years, the Queen Mary has been the site of at least 49 reported deaths, not to mention having gone through the terrors of war, so it comes as no surprise that spectral spirits of her vivid past continue to walk within her rooms and hallways. Among the ghosts reportedly still hanging around are a sailor who died in the ship's engine room, a "lady in white," and children who drowned in the ship's pool. Other phenomenon occurring throughout the ship, are the sounds of distinct knocks, doors slamming and high pitched squeals, drastic temperature changes, and the aromas of smells long past. These are but a few of the many reports of apparitions and strange events occurring at this luxury liner turned hotel. There’s no doubt the Queen Mary is full of mystery and lore.

Let’s unwind our adventure-filled day with dinner at the Chelsea Chowder House & Bar. There’s nothing better than a juicy steak or fresh fish after a day at sea (or at port). We can watch the sunset and revisit the memories of our exciting stay aboard the legendary Queen Mary.

Dollys Daily Delivery - Day 12 & Vote
The story of how Lily, or Lilybug as we fondly call her, came to be with us is nothing special but the story of how her life was saved using herbal remedies is!

Little "Bug" was adopted from a local shelter when she was just 6 or 7 weeks old. She looked at us from behind the shelter cage bars and it was love at first sight. A Maine Coon mix, our pretty baby is a very sweet and loving girl. She sports a beautiful, red tabby coat complete with the bottle brush tail and long belly hair of the Maine Coon breed. An average size cat, she is smaller than a true Maine Coon, and has never set even on paw in the snow.


She has a very expressive face with large, piercing yellow eyes. When she stares at you, you can practically feel it! Graceful like a ballet dancer, she can jump from the floor on to the top of a table covered with stuff without disrupting a thing.


Lily is a lap cat. She loves to snuggle on a lap with her face buried under our arm or in a shirt sleeve. She purrs the entire time she is being petted and if the petting stops, she stops purring, pull her head out and looks at you with her piercing eyes as if to say "I didn't say you could stop!" When the petting resumes, the purring resumes and she buries her head back in the snuggle position. Needless to say, she gets lots of attention.


We have long been believers in the benefits of herbal remedies, especially when it comes to our cats. Studies have shown that cats respond very well to herbal remedies. Our own experience bears this out. We use all natural essences like Bach Flower Essences and Spirit Essences to help our cats heal, adjust to changes, cope with grief and trauma, and to just deal with each other when life gets too much! But, if one of our babies requires medical attention, we are the first ones at the vet! For emotional stress and chronic problems, we find that herbal remedies tend to work the best and without the harmful side effects of modern medications.
A prime example of the positive benefits of herbal therapies recently occurred after a very minor injury and the events that followed, could have easily cost our baby her life.

Wander With Whiskers – June 11 – Los Angeles
Welcome to Hollywood!
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Let’s all climb aboard our Feline Motor Coaches & head for Hollywood. Our first stop will be to see the famous Hollywood Sign. You can see the Hollywood Sign from many places around Los Angeles, but a quick drive up Mulholland Drive or above the Hollywood Reservoir will reward us with a glimpse of living in the Hollywood Hills & some great city views, too.

Next stop, the Hollywood Walk of Fame. We start the day by spending the morning on Hollywood Boulevard, following the path of bronze-and-marble stars along the Walk of Fame. Since 1960 more than 2,400 celebrities have been honored along the world's most famous sidewalk, but you'll need an old-timer to explain who a lot of the now-long-dead entertainers were.

Along the Hollywood Walk of Fame we’ll see Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. It's sort of a tourist rite of passage to compare your hands and feet with the famous prints set in cement at the entrance court to Grauman's Chinese Theatre, a tradition started when silent-film star Norma Talmadge "accidentally" stepped in wet cement during the premiere of Cecil B. DeMille's King of Kings. Go ahead -- compare your paws to footprints left by Humphrey Bogart or Marilyn Monroe.

We’ll take a lunch break & walk down the street to Musso & Frank Grill, Hollywood's oldest restaurant (since 1919). Part restaurant, part museum, this is where Faulkner, Hemingway, and Orson Welles derived liquid inspiration during their screenwriting days. After lunch, we can all waddle back to our motor coach, put in a ‘Best of the Beach Boys’ CD and slowly cruise the legendary Sunset Boulevard and The Sunset Strip.

This 1-hour drive takes us from sorta-seedy Hollywood to flamboyant West Hollywood, past the moneyed minimansions of Beverly Hills, winding our way into the secluded enclave of Pacific Palisades toward Malibu, and finally the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH).

We soon arrive at the Santa Monica Pier. Built in 1908 for passenger & cargo ships, the pier does a pretty good job of recapturing the glory days of Southern California. Buy an ice-cream cone at one of the snack shacks & stroll seaward past the wooden carousel, roller coaster, and arcades, then buy a ticket to ride the Ferris wheel.

From the pier, we’ll walk to the carnival-like stretch known as Venice Beach. For first-timers, this pseudo-bohemian scene is a bit of a shock to the senses: a surreal assemblage of street performers, musicians, musclemen pumping serious iron, apocalyptic evangelists, break dancers, stoned drummers, outlandish clothing—or lack of, and endless schlock shops. We haven’t seen it all until we’ve seen Venice! MOL!

Our paws should be tired by now. We’ll board our motor coaches & head back to our hotel for a leisurely dinner.

Then mom got the weedeater out to do the front yard then she mowed it. Then she started on the back yard with the weedeater. After dad was done with his project, he finished doing the weedeating while mom mowed the back yard. After they were done the neighbor man asked dad if he would mom his yard, too, so dad did.

♥ Mom and dad has been treating Jazpyr 10428 the last few days as he has developed a bad case of Feline Acne. Dad has to hold him while mom works on him. Mom also thinks he got it from my saliva when I lick him as I like to groom him even though mom and dad tells me not to!!!!

Dollys Daily Delivery - Day 10
If you miss any of my blogs you can go to one of my profile pages below named "Dollys Catpaign Blogs".

Every 2 hours during the night, we gave the babies warm formula. We held them and tried to comfort them. During the wee hours of the night, the little girl kitten died. We were heartbroken and feared for the life of the little boy.


Early the next morning, our other cats were up and waiting for their breakfast. To our surprise, the little baby boy was up and moving around in the box we were using as a bed. He seemed quite alert and curious. We brought him with us to the food prep area while we prepared breakfast for our other cats.


As we prepared the baby food-lysine mixture for Buddy, we held up a spoonful of the baby food for the little guy to inspect. To our amazement, he started licking it!


We immediately fixed a dish of the baby food, baby rice cereal and kitten formula for him and he ate it right up! We all began cheering! Despite the odds against him, it seemed as though this tiny baby would survive after all! Only time would tell if he had suffered any permanent damage but we didn't care. No matter what, this little guy would always have a home with us. We decided to call him Murry.


Over the next week, Murry thrived. He became fast friends with "BUDDY" , another kitten we had rescued who was a few weeks older. They began sleeping and playing together and soon were sharing meals together.


We fed Murry the baby food, rice cereal, formula mixture several times a day for several days then started mixing in some raw meat homemade cat Food (minus the chunks and psyllium). He loved it and continued to have a terrific appetite!


Within a couple of weeks, our little baby boy had explored every nook and cranny of the house and was following the 'big cats' around watching everything they did. He was fearless and got himself into quite a few scrapes. He fell off furniture, miscalculated jumps, ran into walls, rolled down the stairs and even fell in the toilet once! Miraculously, he survived every mishap unscathed!

Wander With Whiskers – June 10–Long Beach
Welcome to the Queen Mary -
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Relax on board the Castle Train after your sleeping rooms are assigned. Watch the scenery go by & listen to the rhythm of the rails. Keep a bag packed, because we won’t be sleeping here overnight yet.

We arrive to Long Beach CA in about 3 hours where we will be checking into the Queen Marry, our hotel destination for 3 days.

Once a world-class ocean liner, the Queen Mary Hotel offers guests unique accommodations & a wide array of attractions that simply cannot be found anywhere else. Each stateroom is unique with its own personality & offers a real glimpse into what transatlantic travel was like during the 30’s, 40’s & 50’s. On Oct. 31, 1967, the Queen Mary departed on her final cruise, arriving in Long Beach, California, on Dec. 9, 1967. She has called Southern California her home ever since. The Queen Mary is now a floating Hotel, Attraction & Event & Wedding Venue, home to three world-class restaurants & an icon in Southern California. With an impressive history & tradition of excellence, the Queen Mary Hotel is more than a place to rest one’s head – it’s an entire experience. There’s a wide variety of things to do on the ship, but we’ll save that for our last day.

Let’s Visit Catalina Island -
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
California's only coastal island retreat is a short trip away from Los Angeles & part of the same county, but it's surprisingly different from its mainland counterpart. Most of its land is preserved as a nature conservancy, surrounding the small town of Avalon where about 3,000 people live. Avalon is a small, walkable town centered on the small boat harbor & waterfront, with enough hotels, restaurants & activities to keep visitors happy.

The most common way to get to Catalina Island from the mainland is to take a ferry, but we’ll take the glass bottom boat. These large, comfortable vessels bring the undersea world right to you. During our trip we’ll visit the Lover’s Cove Marine Preserve, where colorful fish & marine plants thrive among the kelp forests.

Upon arrival, we’ll walk along the waterfront from Casino Point to Lover's Point. Along the way, we'll see orange garibaldi fish swimming in the kelp beds & boats in the harbor, pass through the center of town & out again, to where the beaches are less busy & the views unobstructed.

Catalina residents drive golf carts because it's difficult to get permission to bring an automobile onto the island, but most visitors do it just for fun. We'll find rental places along the waterfront. While we've got wheels, let’s head up the hill to take in the vista from just below the Inn on Mt. Ada, run out to the Botanical Garden, then go across town toward the Zane Grey Hotel for a different point of view.

Time to head back to our hotel!

Wander With Whiskers – June 7 –San Diego
LA JOLLA & TIJUANA
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
La Jolla, CA
================= =^.^=
In Spanish, La Jolla means "the jewel," an apt name for a beautiful town ringed with blue waters. It's one of California's prettiest oceanside towns, and home to several of the state's best beaches.

La Jolla is popular with shoppers, romantics & outdoor adventurers who can surf, kayak, scuba dive & bicycle here. It's also a great foodie destination with some of San Diego's best-rated restaurants & a good place to go just to relax.

Beaches: When people say San Diego has great beaches, they really mean La Jolla has great beaches. La Jolla Cove, La Jolla Shores & Windandsea are not only the best in San Diego but perhaps the best in the state & La Jolla Shores may be California's most beautiful beach, with a wide, gently-sloping beach & panoramic views. A morning or sunset walk here is enough to relax the most stressed-out among us, and it's even better when the tide is going out, coating the sand with a mirror-like water layer.

We’ll go for a window-shopping stroll along Prospect Avenue & the side streets that run into it. With few chain stores in sight, we might just find something we can't leave without. To enjoy La Jolla at its scenic best, we’ll check the low tide times before we go, when the tide pools are revealed.

We only have a day, so let’s get back on the Feline Motor Coaches & head for Mexico!
…………………………………………………………………………
Tijuana, Mexico
================= =^.^=
It's only a short drive from San Diego, but we'll feel that we've entered another world when we leave the United States behind & enter Tijuana, Mexico. This tour is a must for bargain shoppers & lovers of Mexican cuisine. All visitors to Mexico will be required to present a passport upon re-entry into the United States.
REMEMBER – Let’s all stay together while we are here!

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS:
Tijuana Cultural Center: The center is a multimillion-dollar showcase displaying exhibits about Mexico's people, events & culture, and is well worth a visit for the Mexican cuisine alone.

Shopping: The Tijuana terminal located on Avenida Revolucion makes it convenient to shop the many Bazaars & Boutiques. This is where we wheel & deal for shopping bargains. There are also ample opportunities to get your souvenir photograph taken with a Tijuana zebra (a donkey with black stripes) and cart. Good luck & be careful!

I hope you are all looking forward to riding the Royal Feline Castle Train next week, as we begin our journey up the CA Coast. My family & I will be returning to the Castle this weekend for some rest & relaxation. You are welcome to join us or continue your stay at the Hotel Del Coronado. Either way, we’ll see you back here on Monday!
