How We Met

KC was abandoned at my neighbor's house and I took her in to keep her safe. Little did we know that she would end up saving me! This little girl floated up to meet my hand when I first saw her and reached down for her, and that was it--there was no way that we could leave her outside in the cold! She's been a lover from the very first day. All of the cats are rescues. Many were dumped here or out in the country. Anya came from the Humane Society after being found injured in a parking lot. Every one of these babies are very special.

sleepover tomorrow night/water fun games wed
it was a much quieter day for a change after finishing online stuff, janet got the chaise lounger put it out front under the shade and got the sheets and pillow cases in left them in the basket on the floor till later to be put back and then went out with her change of clothes from work to home, put them out in the car and was sitting doing up string beans first and limas se cond which took her till 4:30 when she finished in the nick of time to come in and get mashed potato, mixed veggies, the string beans going and bagged the limas up till wed when they'll get frozen that morning after the picking is done as it'll be to hot for any outside work for much of this week with 90s and humid/hot conditions. after supper it was their second walk as it was that after she got in from work and wasn't half bad cooler actually than it was when they walked on saturday! last night was nice too just hotter feeling thanks to the humidity! sandy,ab,haley, angels

hi kc and zoo
don't worry, ur prayers have done wonders

ur momma should do what our momma did and contact ur county and protest the amount of ur taxes. when we get our "pre bill" telling us what our up coming taxes will be, they state momma can protest the amt which she did and it got our tax amt cut almost in half.

below: blog on goliath
loves yall
angel doodle
hope we can lighten everyones's spirits for a moment with our good news about our doggie sib, goliath. his visit to the vet this past Saturday was his last. he is healing really good. still had one spot of dead skin on his back bout the size of a silver dollar. they didn't want to mess with it. sssoooooo tonight, momma was looking at it and saw how small a spot was still attached, so as she has a surgical scapel, momma heat and alcohol sterilized it and just with one small stroke, removed it. did not bleed at all.

then she took goliath outside to pee and poop, as he let her know he needed to do. when came back in momma and goliath actually played " i'll get ur tail, then foot" and he growls like his is gonna tear her hand off, and when he does make contact with his mouth he uuuhhh "fleas" her. anyway when they got thru doing that momma got a tube of hydrocortisone ointment, put it on her thumbs, and massaged it into the bare healed skin and goliath literally laid there and grunted in pleasure. needless he is having the most restful nite we have seen him have in the past four weeks.

is good there will be no more vet bils as momma still has an 800.00 outstanding bill yet to pay

but hhhooorrraaaahhhhhh our goliath is on the recovery road and feels good enough to play with momma a bit

purrs and love

PS BUT ALL IS NOT SO GOOD AS THE TRANSMISSION HAS GONE OUT ON DAD'S WORK VAN AND WE DONT HAVE THE MONEY TO GET IT FIXED. WE WILL KEEP OUR FAITH AND GET THRU ALL THESE BAD THNGS HAPPENING ALL AT ONCE SOMEWAY

♥ We are sorry we didn't get to be on to visit our friends Saturday, but dad opened one of those Pandora Boxes when he went to change an "O" ring in the kitchen faucet. First he went to Home Depot to buy a new one, but they didn't have any so he went to Lowe's which they had one. Once he got it on and back together, it still leaked bad so mom and dad ended up going back to Lowe's and bought a new faucet. It was after 9:00pm last night when he finally got done.

♥ Last night mom heard a cat fight which mom had a feeling who it was and sure enough it was Mysteanah-Gre' and Sonnjae in a nasty fight!!!! Mysteanah is the one who usually starts it. Mom never got to see Sonnjae after that last night nor has she seen him yet today, but mom's hoping to see him later so mom can try to check him over. Mysteanah seemed to be okay!!!!

♥ Mom had to get dad up at 5:00am this morning as he went Salmon fishing with his nephew David toward the coast of Florence. Then a bit later mom went to Wal*Mart this morning to pick up a few things.

♥ Mom added two new pictures of our front yard down at the bottom of my page.

Hey KC & Zoo Crew!
Well glad that possums are not dangerous but Mom isn't happy having anything visit on the patio! Not even stray cats! You never know who may have rabies or diseases & may jump up on the screen. That is just too close for comfort. We live in a very closely populated area so she really doesn't expect to see any wild animals here. Where do they come from? No woods or place for them to live.Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. Legend

sleepover tues/water fun wed!
it sure is really nice and comfortable outside this morning 64 which likely will drop to around 60-62 seeing we've turned more humid and will dry out once that hot dry front goes through and stay that way till about mid week when the humidity starts to work back in again with boomers by fri/sat although some locals are saying thurs/fri time frame, just depends on when it gets here and if it slows down like the last one took a week or more just to get here. janet did the garden work and noticed some of her tomatoes from seed just starting to ripen in spots and she's determined to pull the corn and should've this past week, but left it and will ask neighbors if they want them for fall decorations or not a good way to get rid of things or put them out front as most charge a price and get what they're asking! janet would say free! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Zoo Crew
Mom was gone till late last night so I was offline. Our boys won both games so they're off to a great start! :)
Mom and I are praying that your mom's *new* medicine continues to work well for her. If it worked for her hand too, that would be a great bonus.
From now on, they will probably go to the fair only once a year. GGM has lifetime passes which get them in for free so at least admission is covered.
Love,
Sakura

Hi Zoo Angels
Seeing as Summer is coming to a close, how would you like one last chance to go sailing? AJ thought it would be fun to sail to the Island of Catsville, stay for a few nights in the Cat Hotel, go swimming and camping, etc.

Feel free to bring any friends along who would like to come and be sure to bring plenty of towels and your bathing suit {or not}..AJ is bringing his pool tire and I am bringing my raft...you can also bring any food or beverages you want we can take along on the camping trip!

The weather is supposed to be fantastic this coming week. Soon enough we will be seeing the colors changing and the air getting cooler as Autumn sets in!

Hope you can join us!

Hi Zoo Crew and Mom!
We spent the morning at the fabulous opening of CC’s very own Kitty Sanctuary. Queen Maggie and Queen Angel Ginger, along with several of our hard-working and creative furiends, did a terrific job on the project. The “Cathouse On The Queens,” as it was named, is so beautiful we wished we could stay there for a few days! Really! It’s just like a 5-paw hotel! If you haven’t already, be sure to check it out at the Cat’s Meow Resort & Event Center on page 271826.

It’s only supposed to get in the high 80’s today- much better than the 98 degrees we had yesterday. We might even get to stay in the backyard a little bit longer.

Last night my Mom woke up with a start to the sounds of cat’s hissing, screaming and running like horses down the stairs. Mom jumped out of bed, saw Whitey and Orangie looking frightened by the bedroom door. More yowling as Mom ran downstairs to find me, on top of my sister Callie, while she screamed out for Mom. Mom pulled me off of Callie, yelling the whole time; then checking to make sure Callie wasn’t hurt. She wasn’t, but I knew that! Mom picked Callie up and carried her back to bed- where Dad was still sound asleep! That guy can sleep through anything! After everything had calmed down, Mom came downstairs to see where I was. I was sitting at the top of our tallest cat tree, still feeling feisty and swishing my tail back and forth. Mom talked to me and I finally jumped down. Mom isn’t sure what caused the fight, but she’s hoping I’m just feeling better. Maybe she’ll get the hint that I need more one-on-one playtime with her!

Your Mom is a real sweetheart for always stopping to help any animal in need and your Dad is a great guy for always helping her. What's especially wonderful about your pawrents is at least they know what they're doing when they handle animals. My Mom tries her best and Dad, well Dad knows Mom well enough not to argue. MOL!

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

Hi Pique & Zoo Crew, It's me Talley
COTM DAY 29
Today we take a break in the catpaign, to make an announcement,
Queens Maggie and Angel Ginger have agreed that the Coronation shall take place on Tuesday September 1st beginning at 7:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time. The ceremony will take place on the Cat’s Meow Resort, (271826). Following the ceremony there will be a reception for all kitties. There will be a delicious menu, Music and Dancing until the wee hours (or until everyone is tired and goes to sleep)
I have to say, It has been an honor and a pleasure to Catpaign this month, and I am so overwhelmed with your support and kindness. I will try to be a good Queen and serve you well.
And now a poem:

Cat-Proofing
Like God keeps His eye upon the sparrow,
I keep my eye upon the cat,
For unlike the little sparrow,
I’m not sure just where she’s at.
She knows the couch is out of bounds,
Yet invariably she goes there,
She ignores the yellow warning tape,
I’ve wound around it, in despair.
I know she likes electric cords,
She pulls them from the wall,
I’ve told her fifty million times,
THAT’S NOT ALLOWED AT ALL!
The wires are rewired now,
To shriek like fire sirens,
If she so much as puts a paw
Anywhere near their environs.
She treats the kitchen counter,
As a fun place on which to glide,
Though it’s purposely lubricated
To make her slip and slide.
When I booby-trapped the cupboards,
I thought, “A-ha! I’ve stopped her now!”
But fearlessly she enters,
And does not blow up, somehow.
Some cat owners keep baskets
Of balls of yarn upon the floor,
My basket’s filled with hand grenades,
Which she bats around ’til she gets bored.
Alternate pencils on my desktop,
On impact will explode,
She always kicks the safe ones off,
How ever does she know?
There’s nothing wrong with cat food,
It’s made special, just for cats,
But she wants steak and baked potato,
GET DOWN! GET OFF MY TABLEMAT!
Just once I’d like to wear a dress,
Not accessorized with cat hair,
But plastic bags do not protect,
How does she get inside there?
I firmly speak; my voice is loud,
Sometimes I fairly SHOUT!
But, somehow her cat meows,
Are loud enough to drown me out.
I tell her time and time again,
CUT OUT THAT LOOKING CUTE!
It would help so much when I yell at her,
If she looked more like a brute.
Her attention span is not too long,
Just long enough to drive me wild,
I’m convinced she had some lessons,
From a clever, spoiled child.
I doubt God’s little sparrows,
Give Him trouble quite like mine,
But He can’t hold them in His lap,
Or hug them any time.
Oh, I suppose it is a tradeoff,
And I do get some relief,
Like when she’s curled up on the couch
Behind the yellow tape, asleep.
I think to master cat control,
Is a fine, accomplished art,
I’ve learned I can cat-proof my house,
But I can’t cat-proof my heart.
I love you all,
Talley

if janet
were to get another job on top of this one she wouldn't get time off just because she was on vacation from stop and shop she would have to tell this other job that if she had to have time off for appointments like bringing mommy to springfield which she's gotta do next month the week before her next vacation and taking nat for one of his coming up too, but again nothing new she just takes them and sits in the car and reads till they come out, no matter! she works part time as they won't allow her to go full time as she's asked several times and they've always given her the royal run around and maybe it's also due that she's not willing to work later than 1 at the latest or afternoons or evenings and her part time is almost what's considered full time which would be over 30 hours and she's just that 30 hours and no more! they keep try ing to cut her hours and she ignores them and cards in an hour earlier and goes straight to work. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hey KC & Zoo Crew!
Same here. Warming up this weekend & in the 90's all next week. Not in a hurry for it to get cold again yet! We are both in the open living room window. A couple nights lately a black cat has been out there & last night Mom woke up to scratching noises and when she looked out, she thought she saw a pointy white face in the recycle box under the window! She put the outside light on & it disappeared! Mom is afraid it might be a possum again. We had one here last year once. Mom is going to close the window when she goes to bed as she isn't sure what it might do & that's too close to her precious boys! MOL. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening.

♥ Listen up!!!! You remember that orange Tabby Tomcat that's been hanging around in our back yard???? Well, he's still here and has gained a little weight so he's not so gauntly looking. But guess what???? He finally let mom pet him about a week ago and still lets mom pet him some!!!! Mom was thrilled to achieve that. Mom also gave him a name and is getting him used to hearing it. Mom thought of a few names to fit him and has decided to call him ..... Sonnjae (pronounced Son Jay).
Mom also took lots of pictures of him and added seven (7) into my gallery.

♥ Mom called (Jazpyr's #10428 littermate sister) TOEBEE'S Momma Judy on Thursday afternoon to see how TOEBEE is. She is doing ok and continues to eat and drink water. Momma Judy did find another lump which makes two now.

♥ SAUSHA #22506 has calmed down enough as not to be so scared when mom goes in their room. She comes to mom again as she had in the past before her sickness. She loves the laser light and chases it all around in their room. Dad and mom are impressed by her fastness at it and so cute!!!!

♥ I am feeling lots better, too, and taking my Simplicef antibiotics for mom with no issues. Mom says I'm usually a good boy when taking my meds.

♥ UPDATE ON WHYSKRS #10378
Whyskrs continues to be on his diet even thru all of us that has been sick. Mom has not stopped him on that.
Since April 2, 2015 at his official weight of 25.2 lbs. he now weighed in at 22.3 lbs. on August 17, 2015.

Thanks a bunch, KC and the Zoo
for helping me celebrate my Adoptiversary and for the very special Adoptiversary present. A photo album of ALL the best times in my forever home! Oh, I suspect Mom and Lady Dolly helped you find all the pictures for this!

I 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

outside down to 56 here this morning as yesterday we did hit 58 once janet left for work. going to start warming back up so the fans soon will be running fulltime once again. as of right now the predicted highs for all of next week are tues-thurs into the lower 90s and feels like the lower 100s unless it's a dry heat which we're to get for a few days next week. man the change in the weather and allergies both are getting janet so she's miser-able now and is back taking eye drops, but doesn't have anything but some nasal spray and not much of that either left so will have to shell out something for that more than likely this coming week when they're out run-ning errands on monday. besides that no chances as of right now although locals are sticking with a chance on sunday and another either tues/wed next week, twc is saying nothing more than partly or mostly cloudy for a partial day next week with all upper 80s and lower 90s but feels more like upper 90s to lower 100s most of the week. kids here and 4-8 other school systems go back either monday or tuesday and then all will be in session as a good part started this week at sometime or other. colleges a few are in session starting this coming week and most aren't till the day after labor day in two weeks time. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Zoo Crew
Yeah, the exhibitions were a bit disappointing as most of them were home construction or improvement companies. Mom remembers when there were a variety of vendors, lots with neat things. She doesn't go on the rides anymore either. The pressure of some bothers her legs and they have become ridiculously expensive ($23 for a wristband for unlimited rides for a few hours). She and GGM just go to see what's there and have a treat. The wind's in the right direction so the concert can be heard. They live fairly close by, MOL.
Hehe, I'll let you go so your mom can give Sasha her required attention. :)
We are hoping and praying that the new medicine works well for her.
Love,
Sakura

Hi Feather & Spirit
I am so happy that we don't have to see the Vet as often as mom has to go to the Dr. Yikes: here are what mom is facing the next 2 weeks:

Tomorrow: 2:45---MRA to check the blood vessels in moms brain.
Tues. 9/1-- 5:15pm...MRI
WED. 9/9--2:30...EEG
9/10--Back to the Cardiologist
Mon. 9/14---4:15pm...AEP {it is a test that checks sound waves and electrical waves in the brain}
9/15--Back to the neurologist
10/5---she goes in for an Endoscopy!

Doesn't all of this sound quite exciting?? NOT!!! Glad it isn't me.

We were very cool today. Only got to 64* and cloudy all day...not windy, just breezy. Mom and her friend Sue went downtown and went on the Diamond Jacks River Tour...mom took some pics....it was kinda windy on the water though so mom took a jacket!

We got to go outside and watch mom water her garden when she got home...we stayed on the porch and Winston sat on the picnic table on the other side of the yard...when mom turned off the water, we came back downstairs.

It gets dark kinda early now, so our outside time is getting cut off at 8:30pm..we used to be out til 9:30 or 10pm....a sure sign that Autumn is coming.

Mom said she hates onions {she picks them out of the Manwich} and she also hates Gumbo soup...our mom is a very picky eater....kinda like us cats!

Well, I certainly hope you had a nice day!

Hey KC & Zoo Crew!
We are not ready for it to stay cool either but doubt we have anything to worry about! Sunday up to 90* and then 90* or higher for 5 days and then only dipping to 87* so... and then hovering at 88* for awhile. The fans will keep running for awhile. Last couple nights here we didn't need any fans & this morning Mom closed the window when she got up! The apt was chilly. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. Legend

Hi Zoo Crew and Mom!
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.:)

We wish we could send some sunshine your way!

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 Pique & The Zoo Crew, 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

Hey KC & Zoo Crew!
Good morning! Happy National Pet Day! Thanks very much for the good wishes for Mom. Sometimes she feels like she will never be done with that boot! She is so anxious to be able to take her long walks again. Hope your Mom finds a good dentist. It is important to trust your health care workers. Cool morning. But that will change. Saturday back up into the 90's again for several days. Of course. First 1/2 of September is always hot here. To remind us that summer is not quite over yet! Okay. Not in a rush. Fall goes quickly and then it will be too cold again! We can wait. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect day. Kitty Kisses. Legend

it's down
to 60 here and janet's stupid as she's got the fan going full tilt and has for a few days now and won't likely need it till this afternoon or tonight after she's walked. okay it's off now so she won't have to sit here and shiver as she knows it's more than likely we'll see the upper 50s or maybe mid 50s by the time she goes to leave for work as it's just getting light now when she leaves and is light enough once she's close enough to work to turn her headlights off near work. she'll wait and see if she'll have to continue to card in mornings which is nothing new as her store still doesn't have a manager for 3 weeks now and they just transferred another full timer who transferred out back in june to an-other store closer to his home due that we didn't have enough help and couldn't get it as nobody wants to work that's the trouble now. sandy,ab,haley,angels

seen help wanted all over the place and some are down now, but still lots up! students will have a field day those who want to work that is!

Hi KC, Sasha, Angel Jesse, K Leo,

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 sweet and generous gift! Of COURSE I like it!!

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❀

Hi Zoo Crew and Mom!
Today was supposed to be in the low 90’s so we went out early for our stroller walk. Then Mom took our neighbor out for a ride in her wheelchair. The sun was already out, so Mom hooked an umbrella on the wheelchair to keep the sun off of Abarna. We watched them from the bay window and laughed at how silly they looked. MOL!

This morning my Mom was filling the syringes with my pureed cat food and I sat by the kitchen watching her. Normally I run off when she comes towards me so she has to catch me first. But today I didn’t. Mom got on the ground next to me, petting me and letting me sniff the syringe. I swallowed the first one like a good boy and Mom waited for me to run. Nope! I sat there waiting for more! Mom gave me my second one along with a big hug. Dad was watching and said to Mom, “Oh no, I hope he doesn’t get used to eating this way. How will I ever be able to feed him when you’re not here?” Mom isn’t worried. She just wants to get some weight on me with this prescription food and hopefully when I go back for my urine retest, I’ll get a clean bill of health. Baby steps Dad!

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

This Is My Chair =^.^=
~~~~~
This is my chair.
Go away and sit somewhere else.
This one is all my own.
It is the only thing in your house that I possess
And insist upon possessing.
Everything else therein is yours.
My dish,
My toys,
My basket,
My scratching post and my Ping-Pong ball;
You provided them for me.
This chair I selected for myself.
I like it,
It suits me.
You have the sofa,
The stuffed chair
And the footstool.
I don’t go and sit on them do I?
Then why cannot you leave me mine,
And let us have no further argument?

♥ Well, guess I best tell you that I haven't been feeling too well lately!!!! Mom had SUSPICIONS about me so here's what happened; mom followed me all around the house when I was awake. Said she didn't trust me since I peed on the kitchen counter Monday. She followed me til I decided to use the potty box.

♥ TUESDAY morning 8/25; Mom managed to get a urine sample Monday night so she took it in to The Veterinary Hospital right after she did her morning kitty chores then came back home. Mom then left about 10:00am as she had to go clean an elderly gentleman's (Bud)home which she does once per month. Shortly after mom got home, Dr. Nancy called mom about 2:30 confirming mom's suspicion about as I do have a UTI so a bit later mom had to go pick up the antibiotic Simplicef 100mg pills. Mom had Dad kitty sit me so I wouldn't pee inappropriately.

♥ SAUSHA #22506 does good then a few days or so goes by when she will vomit so mom calls it in to have it on Record. She has one more day left on her antibiotic. Mom misses her loud purring as she rarely does that anymore.

Hi Leo & Jack
Today was Autumn like around here and we thought it was gonna rain, but it never did. Just very cloudy with a little bit of sun here and there.

We had to stay locked in the house all day while mom went to work and then had her DR Appt...you can read about it on the CMR!

Mom got home late and we were upset cause our dinner was late. We eat at 5:30pm and mom got home at 6pm. We gave mom funny looks and told her don't be late anymore.

She said she was sorry but her and her friend also stopped to eat dinner before coming home and we didn't get any. It was Chinese and we don't like that, so it was alright!

We are all outside right now, but we will be coming in soon cause it gets dark early now and mom brings us in when it starts to get dark so she can see us...we have a very dark yard at night.

Mom is liking her new-to-her computer desk. Very roomy with lots of room for more stuff should mom get any new stuff for it....I was already all over it and investigating it from top to bottom. I didn't jump way on top of it though, but I sniffed everything within my nose reach....have to make sure it is safe for mom you know!

It was Casey's idea for the name change. We will now be known as "Furball Express"...how do you like that one?

Well, I hope you have a pawsome evening!
Stay warm

Hi KC & The Zoo Crew, 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

water fun day!
it won't be much longer before janet's off and walking. once back it's picking tomatoes what few there are, pole string and lima beans as the last of the corn was picked last weekend. she has to shuck that and decide what's to be frozen and what's going to be eaten as some are very small she calls nibblets which are good for freezing on the cobb. got nice weather here through this weekend, although turning more humid and getting hot again as we will be like summer when kids go back to school here next week as more than 75% of the schools opened up this week, the remainder including amherst goes early next week. got temps into the lower 80s today, then upper 70s just tomorrow 80 friday and mid 80s this weekend. watch out next week high humidity, high heat indexes and temps into the upper 80s and lower 90s uncomfortable all week! sandy,ab,haley,angels

good thing janet's getting what she can done outside today and the next few afternoons once errands and grocery shopping are done.

hello zoos
thank you for coming to see me for my cat of the day! I was surprized, and honored too. yes, it has been 9 years, I crossed about 3 weeks before my nani, mom's mom, and it was hard for both of them, but mom wonders if it meant more for her mom, because she knew she was going to heaven soon, mom still had some hope that it would not happen. mom is dreading that day already, nani died during the moment of silence on the 5th anniversary of 9/11, TVs were on all over the hospital, mom will never forget, for more reasons than 1. oh I am depressing you now, thanks for helping me get cotd! love A.PASTOR LOKI

Hi Pique and Zoo Crew, 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

Hey Sasha
Mom cheats and uses Manwich for sloppy joes...tonihgt she is eating canned Ravioli.

Mom's neighbor, Brad helped her with her desks..he bought the used new one inside and took mom's old one out and mom unassembled it.

Mom got the new desk all set up and Brad helped her with the heavy stuff...mom also got her computer all set up and did it right...even the internet or we wouldn't be here! MOL!!!

Hey KC & Zoo Crew!
Bummer. Sorry Mom needs to find a new dentist. My Mom is lucky hers retired so she was seeing his brother. Last year he had a stroke so the nephew is filling in and he is very good. Young so probably not out of school very long. Mom had her foot x-rayed on the 20th & needs to wear the boot until 9/10 when it gets x-rayed again. She is praying it is healed then, as the boot is a pain. We will see. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. Legend

So pawsomely quiet in the house...
that I finally get to meow at everyfur!! Thank you for pouncing by to celebrate my adopty day with me on the 20th...& for the catgrats on my being COTD on the 21st! I enjoyed all of your blogs, the wonderful gifts, beautiful balloons, scrumptious goodies & your loving purrs of furiendship. Thank you SO much for sharing my 2 special days with me!!

It was a super busy weekend with the 1 year old grandson crawling all around the house but we survived...MOL! He was a very good boy the entire weekend but he's getting harder to keep up now that he's crawling so fast. He was standing on his own too so pretty soon the crawling will stop & walking/running will start. Then the real fun will begin for his mommy & daddy...MOL!
Mom managed to get her free windows 10 upgrade done while he was here but is just now getting programs installed to open her files. So far she likes it (except for the mail program) so thinks she'll keep using it instead of reverting back to her old operating system. She's already downloaded the mail program she likes, a word & excel program to open her transferred files, installed her new printer & connected everything (via cloud) to her phone to make things faster & easier. She's not sure everything is 'normal' yet but I'm sure she'll find out soon enough if she's missing anything important...MOL!

JJ has returned to the great outdoors...although reluctantly because he loved the attention he got in here...MOL! He's been staying close to home & has been avoiding Bartholomew as much as he can so hopefully he can keep himself out of trouble for a while. His fur has all grown back now that his wounds are completely healed. He's still nervous about noises & unexpected things but purrhaps that will make him more cautious about getting into or going places he isn't supposed to. Keeping my paws crossed on that one...MOL!
Our 2 outside kittens (Libby aka Nibby Libby & her brother Sundance) are doing great & are growing like little weeds. The rest of the outside crew are doing fine too but they're not liking our cooler temps this week.

Well I've got to get going for now so I can bake an anniversary cake for Fluffinella & Joey's 1st year together...& also one for mom & dad who will be celebrating 37 years of wedded bliss tomorrow too. I probably won't be doing anything but voting tomorrow but I'll be back again later in the week. Thanks again for celebrating my adopty day & COTD award winning days with me!!

Big paw hugs,
Patches

sleepover tonight/water fun tomorrow
we've got that snails pace cold front moving in this direction as it's just to the west in ny state and should make the berk-shires this morning before rush hour and here around that time with most of the bad booming between 10-5 today. janet's hoping no torrential downpours like she and nat got caught out in on their way home from grocery shopping last friday! but never can tell! going to be lower 80s tomorrow, then only upper 70s here thursday, lower 80s friday, turning more humid over the upcoming weekend and watch out next week upper 80s and lower 90s here so summer has returned in time for kids all of them going back to school, most go back this week at staggered times while the rest are mon/tues of next week. sandy,ab,haley,angels

hi kc and zoo
hheeee don't tell thundie, but I be proud of that

well, don't think will have to worry bout that for a while yet as goliath still stays right with momma and still has a lot ogoliath laid down on momma's bed as usua tonightl. but seemed different so momma took the hard pastic collar from his neck and he rolled over on his back and cuddled into momma's arms with his nose buried against her neck
momma laid there with him that way till she had to (excuse this) pee when she got up well of course goliath did too and "said" momma I need to pee too. momma at this ppoint took the much larger "soft collar" off (it kept him from reaching past the hard one to lick

anyhoo, momma just spent a very breathless and painful 25 minutes what with her copd and back problems, walking goliath round our 1 acre yard with his leash in one hand and her glock 45 in the other ( not taking any chances on that scum bag that was breaking in her bedroom window last sunday nite) for protection. anyway goliath had the best time in four weeks and when he got a bit fast for momma all she had to do was say my bubba too fast and he would stop and let momma catch up and then walk slower for her.

aww momma will always wonder why a doggie cant just walk out in the yard and pee or poop instead of making at least 3 trips over the same area and then wind up coming right back to the place he started to begin with to poop

aaahhhh the tings we do for our furkids.
again thank all of yall so very much for ur prayers and to momma janet( dean and fam) and momma Irene, queen Maggie and a ginger, and momma Amanda( k whiskers and fam) for the donations they sent to help with goliath's vet bill. it helped so much regardless that I still am facing a 900.00 bill at this time. it will all come around and be handled by god's or momma's efforts

loves yall
a doodle and ga clan and momma debf healing to do afore he can be let out. by then momma will be getting her ss retirement and hopefully one day her disability. then she plans to fence in a part of front yard and she can let himout front door. and this area she wants to fence will also include her window the scumbag was fixing to break in
