❀ Mews from Mallow Castle ❀
Well can you believe it? ME! Queen of Hearts for February! Me who not too many years ago was lurkin’ in King Barney’s tunnel of love with <ahem> a certain unnamed accomplice, droppin’ water balloons on the smoochers. And passin’ out T-shirts that said “Love is in the air – Try not to breathe”. And here I am, Queen of Hearts. Who says that the Universe don’t have a sense of humour?

So of course I’ve gotta bring my own special brand of Mallow-ness to the occasion, and I have found it. Like I mentioned the other day, Feb 14th is also …. International Quirkyalone Day!

International Quirkyalone Day is a feel-good alternative to the all the hype of Valentine’s Day, a celebration of ALL kindsa love: romantic, platonic, familial, friendship and of course, lovin’ and valuin’ the uniqueness that is each of us.

Now if you don’t know that’s right up my alley, you ain’t been payin’ attention so far! So callin’ all Quirkyalones and Quirkytogethers, all day today Prince O.J. & I are hostin’ a Celebration of Hearts at Mallow Castle, page #237624

Guest Chef Sammy is cookin’ up a Mexican Fiesta Feast, with some help from Luke & Chyna and Rev. Loki. Why, I even hear that they have a certain retired MHL mouse puck named Tom who’s been workin’ all through the night preppin’ veggies! DJ Quincy has the music all picked out and her hubby Leo is gonna dazzle us with his lighting skills! You can dance with your sweetie, dance with your family, dance with your friends, dance to your own drummer. Just dance! I’ll bet Quincy will even play the Macarena if we ask her nicely, mol.

But wait … there’s more! Feb 14th is also Ferris Wheel Day, so we have a big one set up on the grounds all day. Ride it with your friends, ride it with your sweetie … and the operator just might be purrsuaded to stop it at the very top for a few private minutes. IF he pays his Royalties, mol.

No set live blog time, just drop in whenever it’s convenient and join the fun. See you there! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Hi Dame Rosie,
Happy Valentine's Day to you. We sure are having a very cold day here and everyone is snuggling up together. Hehehe.!!! First thing this morning we kitties were all standing in line for the heat vents. Mom and Dad wanted to go out to dinner but decided to stay in as 1 degree isn't too much fun to be out and about. They like sports so they will watch golf and be quite happy. This way they can plan another dinner date later next week. Mom colored another picture yesterday and I thought it looked pretty. I do enjoy watching her use all of those colored pencils. Now, if I could get a hold of them, it would be a lot of fun to roll them around the kitchen floor. Hehehe.!!! Have a great day and keep warm and safe. Purrs and a hug, Mittens.... Ps: How is your Dad doing? I keep him in my prayers...

Come visit me, Mittens. I see snowflakes..., Q. Angel Misty. It's winter time...., Minuette. Hi Mr. snowman..., Greycee Mist. Do I love Winter? & Gypsy: Brrr...It is cold....

Wow, I don’t know about you, but I am STILL seein’ those Chinese New Years fireworks every time I close my eyes!

Can ya believe we’re almost halfway through what my brother Mikey insists on callin’ “The Reign of Terror”. No respect, I tell ya! He claims it serves me right for how durin’ HIS stint in the Castle I usedta refer to him as “The Royal Pain”

Well, it’s Caturday the 13th, and since Mom has an appointment today to donate blood (which she calls “visitin’ the vampires”), I have decided to embrace the “Reign of Terror” label and host a scary movie night. Anyone who wants to come early can spend some time with K. Sams, who is leadin’ an expedition to see if any of those Irish ghosts hitched a ride when we had Mallow Castle shipped over. I sure hope the Black Cat of Killakee ain’t somewhere down the basement, I hear he is one mean dude!

Okay now, let’s grab our blankies and trays of Ghost ‘Mallows, and see what we have to put in the old DVD player for ya ….. “When a Stranger Comes” … “Revenge of the Birds” … “Invasion of the Kibble Snatchers” ….. “It Came From the Vet’s Office” … or tell me what your own favourite thriller is. This is a great excuse to get a start on that Valentine’s Day cuddling!

Hi Rosie
Well, we are in the deep freeze again. It is only 19* today! No sun, no wind, just cold! Mom walked to the store and got us cat food and litter, so we are all set, she got 10 cans and they were on sale!

Before she left, she cleaned the house. did dishes, put clothes away, tidied up out toys, cleaned the bathroom, our litter boxes and then she took out the floor monster, but before she turned it on, she made it throw up and you should have seen all the stuff it ate...all kinds of dirt and cat hair and crumbs....after mom made it get sick, she put it back together and turned it on...off we all ran!!

Mom was playing with us, too, she kept throwing colorful mices at us and we would chase them, then she got our wand toy and we all chased that, then we all got some catnip and then we napped!!!

I don't know who gets more worn out when we play chase the wand toy...it has a colorful ribbon on it and mom drags it and we all chase and run into each other, then when we get our nip, we sleep and mom sits down!!!

I hope it is warmer by you then it is by us, at least we didn't get too much snow, only an inch.

Cuddle time!
Big pawhuggz!

Kitties are still relaxing around Mallow Castle, and after Queen MJ finishes sharing her last two Lost & Found stories kitties start to speak up about their own families’ experiences. Kelsee says:

“Mom told me that her Grandma moved away from Detroit up North to Oscoda and couldn't find her cat on the day she left, so they moved without it and came back several times to look for it at the house and never found it. But one day they heard a meow at the back door of the new house and lo and behold..that darn cat found her way to the new home all by herself...they knew it was her cause she still had her collar on”

Furry heads nod in agreement and Rhoamin adds:

“Mom and dad had a gray tabby named Spunky who hitched a ride one day and ended up in another town about 30 miles away!!!!

When he was about a year old, he had gotten hit by a log truck and amazingly survived with only having to amputate his tail as he had no control of it and a fractured pelvis. He looked like a Bobcat after his tail gone as he had the black fur tufts on both ears like a Bobcat.

One day, there was a Lin Care van at the neighbors and Spunky was a curious guy and got in the van. By time the driver got to his next destination he had been surprised by a cat! He asked the people if they could keep him till he could find the owners, as he had an idea the kitty was Mom & Dad’s. A week later when the man came back to the neighborhood he asked Mom if they were missing a kitty. He told Mom & Dad where Spunky was, so they called the people who were keeping him & made arrangements to go get him the next day. Turned out that they knew each other!!!!”

KC and the Zoo Crew have a story to tell too:

“Our Mom has had three cats go missing, and two of them were eventually reunited with her. The first cat got lost when the family moved. Mars came with them but apparently got lost the first time she was let out and ended up back in the old neighborhood. For months people would call saying they'd seen her and Mom would go looking, only to be disappointed. Then, after a full year, Mars showed up at the new house! There were identifying features that proved it was actually Mars come home. Mom was a teenager then and was so happy to have her cat back!”

Everyone smiles as Kelsee has the last word “...and people say dogs are smarter then us...NO WAY!!!!”

I’ve got no argument with THAT! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Hi Dame Rosie,
How are you doing today? We are trying to keep warm as it is very windy and cold. We didn't get a lot of snow, only about 4 inches. Still enough to delay and cancel schools around here. I had some fun today. Mom got her Avon order and there was a pretty heart necklace included. Mom took it out of the box and laid it on the kitchen table. Just then the phone rang and when Mom went to answer it, I decided to look at the necklace. Well, it was so pretty that I decided to take it for myself. Next thing you know I was twirling the necklace around and having a grand time. That is until Mom caught me. Party pooper. Hehehe.!!! Oh well, it was fun for a while. I finally talked Mom into posting a few of her coloring pictures on my page and the bird cage that she made too. I think I will go and ask for a snack and then take another nap. Have a great day and keep warm. Purrs and a hug, Mittens...

Decisions, decisions, decisions!

You know, sometimes durin’ my campaign I just could NOT choose a story to tell ya! Here, let’s change gear for a minute and while we’re recoverin’ from the Mardi Gras festivities I’ll read a couple and see what YOU think:

“Sept 2, 2014 - Cripple Creek, Colorado ~ Emerson the cat returned to its owner Saturday two and a half years after he went missing.

“Emerson's owner, Frankie, believes the cat fell from her third story balcony in Littleton and walked away. After six months of searching for the cat, she assumed he was dead.

“Frankie was working on her property in Cripple Creek when she saw a cat in the distance. At first she didn't know it was Emerson. But then the cat sprinted to her and started to lick her. He had found her; miles away from her Littleton home and almost three years later.

“The cat was found severely hungry, with a healing wound and what looks like a previous head injury.

“Emerson is now resting at home with Frankie. She calls him the "miracle kitty."

And then there’s THIS one:

“November 12, 2013 – Racine Wisconsin ~ Lindsay O’Neill never thought she’d see her cat Sammie again. The sweet tabby had been missing for five long years. But last week, O’Neill got the call that owners of missing pets hope and pray for … Sammie had been found!

“According to the Associated Press, a local resident had seen the cat around her yard and became concerned about the cat as the weather was getting colder. The woman brought Sammie to the Wisconsin Humane Society, where they checked the cat for a microchip. Fortunately for everyone, Sammie had a microchip and it was up to date with O’Neill’s current contact information.

“O’Neill couldn’t believe Sammie was coming home. At first she was worried that he might have changed during his long tome away but reports that he’s the same affectionate, loving cat she remembers. Other than a bit of a skin condition and a healed mouth wound, Sammie’s in tip top shape health-wise too.

“Alison Kleibor, director of the WHS Racine Campus, says microchips are critical investments for every pet owner. “Microchips make reunions like this possible. They are inexpensive and very effective”

See my dilemma? While I was preparin’ my campaign I just found SO many great stories out there, how could a kitty pawsibly choose? ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Holy cow, Rosie, I hope the plow guy gets there before the snow melts! When we get any amount of snow we wonder why they even bother since it's gone in a couple of days anyway. Except for the wall that the plow throws up across the ends of driveways, that is (eye roll)

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

~~~~~

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

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

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

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

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

~~~~~

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

we don't have a bk
here anymore it closed down a year going on 2 years ago with a dispute in rent as it's gone sky high here for some reason which also forced our bank to build a new building across the street and restrictions there too are almost impossible for them! even best buy closed down due to the sky high rent in the small mall which is forcing out a lot of the other stores to make room for a go kart place taking the place of all those stores, not fair we say!
got another nor'easter upon us this morning and janet's decided she's staying home for this one seeing they upped the amount of snow from 1-3" to 3-6" and says she'd rather sit one of them out as she's just learned that another is due to hit when we have the coldest air of the winter so far coming in on sat-mon with highs below 0 at night and only mid teens with wind chills well below that, so at least it's on a weekend and kids don't have to stand outside in it except on monday morn-ing. so far 1-3" is predicted for saturday's storm. likely we'll be offline if this one doesn't quit till tonight which means unless janet goes out tonight to shovel, she'll have to get up early tomorrow around this time and instead of being online will be outside shoveling so she can get into work and not leave a mess for nat to deal with. angels,ab,haley

Hi Dame Rosie,
A Happy Sunday to you my friend. It is a pretty day and warming up nicely. We will enjoy it as snow is back on it's way, tomorrow evening into Tuesday. Mom set the dvr to record the Kitty Bowl and we will watch it later. Right now Mom and Dad are watching golf. I was resting in the patio room for a while but now I am taking my toy lion for a walk. Mom always laughs as I take him everywhere, even to the litter box. Hey, he may need to use the box, you don't know. Hehehe.!!! I like to meow and announce his arrival in to every room. Mom says I can really sing. Oh well, off to visit my sisters and see if they want to spend some time with my lion. If not, I will be on my way. Have a fun day and visit when you can. Purrs and a hug, Mittens...

Come visit me, Mittens. I see snowflakes..., Q. Angel Misty. It's winter time...., Minuette. Hi Mr. snowman..., Greycee Mist. Do I love Winter? & Gypsy: Brrr...It is cold....

Are ya ready for some football??!

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

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

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

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

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

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

their son
must live pretty close by and not to far away! janet did take out the other day from panera and it's always good. she's talk-ing about maybe grinders for supper, if not then will bring some thing home from her store for lunch today so will have to leave a note stating not to eat lunch for mommy as nat won't eat the grinders and likely will have pizza instead. lots of loonies were out shopping or just doing it as they didn't have anything else out to do. we had to do it as the roads were bad on fri-day till the mid to late afternoon when janet and nat could've gone shopping as it wasn't bad, but janet heard that the store was just as bad that afternoon and night with shoppers wanting to beat the rush yesterday. grad-ually getting colder after today's mid 40s. going to get mid 30s next two then 40 on wed and 20s fri-sun and only near 20 for highs on sat/sun with just below/above 0 for morning starts! angels,ab,haley chances of snow mon/thurs and tues of next week a sinker as of right now.

Hi Rosie,
How are you doing today? We are enjoying a sunny but chilly day today. Mom and Dad went to Giant Eagle to pick up their Lipitor medication and also a few groceries for tomorrow. They already have ribs and pulled pork that they froze a few months ago. And cabbage slaw that they canned last Summer. Mom will also make oven baked, seasoned potatoes. The food and the commercials are the best part of the Super Bowl, especially when your team isn't in it. Hehehe.!!! Mom is now relaxing with us. She said she may do a little coloring after I finish up my visits. She just got some new colored pencils to try out. Perhaps she will post a few pictures in my gallery a little later. I do hope that you have a pawsome day and visit when you can. Purrs and a hug, Mittens...

THE URBAN IDITEROD CONTINUES ….

A crowd gathers at the next checkpoint, the very popular Win’s Pizzeria! Colt & Angel Shilo are ready with pots of Chili Catfish Gumbo and … here come the racers! Who’s ahead? It looks like ….

Team Pinto Island! The cart’s decorated in a tropical theme complete with palm trees, with A. K. Max and A. Q. Gracie dressed in their RC Cola and Moonpie outfits. K. Steve, Hot Rod & Mr.Sniff are pullin’ with all their might. Go kitties!!

Watch out, Team Pinto Island! Mischief and Dayzee are coming up behind with their Angels and doggie Molly (dressed as a Cheetah!) mushin’ for all they’re worth! K. Steve takes action, quickly chompin’ some Double Bubble and soon the other teams are in a pink sticky mess. Now was that nice?

White Squirrel Campground is the last checkpoint before the finish line! Kimber & A. Kaycee dish out gumbo while the teams race through! Princess JoJo & teammates in the hot pink cart are hampered by a wobbly wheel, but they are hangin’ in there & chuggin’ along!

Team Quincy is not to be underestimated even though her cart is bein’ pulled by tiny mice! Our future Queen mushes along, K. Leo by her side as she practices the Royal Wave while eatin’ micey creams. And the crowd goes wild!

The teams are nearin’ the finish line! Adorkable and Puzzle have been grillin’ while they wait, Puzzle fell asleep again and …. Well, there’s a lotta smoke in the air <koff! Koff!> Puzzle tries to blow it away by wavin’ the checkered flag …. Even though he’s not sure he’s even wavin’ it in the right direction! First across it’s K. Tuck with Mouse, Dot and Maizie in the cart that Mouse stayed up ALL night knittin’ a cover for! Very classy!

Second is Team Zoo Crew! Addin’ that little beagle of yours made the difference. And … whoa! Morgan won’t stop! She’s draggin’ the whole team straight to the Castle kitchen! Everyone bail out!

Team Georgia Peach is third with the help of Maggie Meme and her girlfriend’s two black labs. Once everyone has crossed the finish line, Queen MJ and King Angel Spike have more trophies:

Best decorated: Team Royals, Q. Lily, Q. A. Misty (with her Angel doggie Scruffy), Q. Zoe Monique and K. Spanky Jack, who have turned their shopping cart cart into a great big crown.

Runner-up best decorated: K. Sams, smokin’ hot with bright racin’ car flames.

Nicest team: Team S Sisters with Sienna, Sable and Angel Sakura dressed in Steampunk costumes & pulled by their neighbourhood doggie friends. They didn’t move too fast because they were gathering pet food, toys & treats for homeless cats & dogs! Well done ladies!

The Hairballz are here, and they volunteer to get the donations distributed and load all the carts up so we can truck ‘em back to the supermarkets!

Thanks, everyone! You kitties rock! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

WELCOME TO THE CAT CHANNEL URBAN IDITEROD!!

Actually, so many kitties wanted to involve their canine pals that I’m invitin’ the NICE Kitties’ brother King Angel Spike from Dog Channel for a cross-Channels event. The race starts at King Spike’s Castle and runs through four checkpoints with the finish line at Mallow Castle.

Guest Chefs Colt, Winchester and Kimber are on hand as the kitties start to arrive, they have trays of their famous fudge, shaped into crowns and stars for the occasion. Very artisitic, ladies! No gobblin’, you doggies!

At the starting line waits Puzzle, curled up in his cozy cat bed with the green flag in his paw. When King Angel Spike announces the start of the race, Adorkable smacks Puzzle hard. He wakes up, waves the flag and …. THE RACE IS ON!!

An early lead is taken by Team Zoo Crew, with their big doggies Lokje and Jada dressed like cats and pullin’ hard while Sasha, Pique, KC and the kitties mush ‘em on! With an actual Malamute and Husky to pull ‘em, this team is gonna be hard to beat but Team NICE might just be able to pull it off! Trixie and Patches are mushin’ their sibs and the family dogs like experts!

Reachin’ the first checkpoint at the MHL Arena, Team Whiskers has surged ahead. Lookin’sharp in their Russian fur hats K. Whiskers, Callie, Orangie & Whitey have recruited some doggy friends they met on their stroller walks, promisin’ them gumbo and fudge for pullin’ the cart. Winchester & Angel Chyna are ready to make good on that promise. As the teams pass the checkpoint they receive mugs of Jambalaya Gumbo with mild or hot sauce to keep ‘em goin’ along the course.

For a while, Team Whiskers is neck in neck with Team Royal Squadron, where K. Pete is helpin’ Ms. Murphy & Raven pull a shoppin’ cart decorated to look like a plane, while Q. Talley hollers “mush!” and waves to her hubby as her team manages to pass his. “For now!” calls K. Whiskers with determination and promises the doggies more fudge.

Next checkpoint is the DC Dog Park where Commere and Tank are dishin’ out gumbo as fast as their paws can go! Here comes Team Georgia Peach, where Q. Gin Gin has decorated her cart with camellia blossoms and catnip sprigs and VI Kitties Crush, Cashmere and Cisco are pullin’ like mad, with some help from Gin Gin’s neighbour doggie.

Team Screamin’ Mimi was ready to start this mornin’ at first light, and they have been holdin’ their own ever since! Q. Mimi is dressed as a hula dancer complete with grass skirt as she mushes her brothers JC, Maxwell, Blackstone and Greyson along.

Ooops! I ran outta room … the race continues tomorrow! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Hi Rosie
Well, today we are back to Winter. Yesterday was 55* and we set a record high for yesterday's date. Today is 33* and it is snowing outside...talk about a big change!

Mom is putting a new picture of me on my page with our kitty tree by the window so I can sit on it and look outside now. I enjoy looking outside at the snowflakes and birds.

Mom did it to us again! She dragged out that noisy old floor monster and it chased us under the bed. Mom did not bring it in there cause she knows we don't like it, she will do her bedroom floor another day!

I wouldn't mind it so much if they made them things noise free--don't you think somebody could make one with a soundless motor we couldn't hear?? That would be nice..let's go on strike at the floor monster manufacturer and tell them to make noise free models..are you with me??

We have been good Nurse's and Doctors cause mom feels better today. She hasn't got dressed yet, she's still in her pj's, she said she will get dressed tomorrow cause she works for 3 hours.

We enjoyed having mom home with us so much, but she slept a lot, so we just cuddled with her on the couch and made her feel better and I made her a pot of chicken soup.

Time to go and put our toys back on the floor where they belong...we like making messes with our toys after mom cleans up..it's really fun!!!

Have a good day!

Okay, today it’s time for a little service project. Oh, quit groanin’ I promise I will make this fun. See, February is Return Carts to the Supermarket Month and that’s a perfect opportunity for ….. an Urban Iditerod!

What is an Urban Iditerod, you may ask? Well, you’ve probably heard of the Alaskan Iditarod, where more than sixty dog sled teams race across the frozen tundra from Anchorage to Nome the first Saturday in March. In the urban version, teams of ‘dogs’ lead by a musher will pull their sleds (aka shopping carts) through an urban environment to the finish line

So let’s get busy! First we go around, collect all of the shoppin’ carts we can. Bonus if we find those ones that the humans hafta put money in, right? Then comes the fun. We get a buncha kitties together, dress up in goofy costumes, form teams with some suckers .... I mean friends ... to pull the shopping cart while one of us rides in it and the other steers & hollers "MUSH!" I kid you not, humans really truly do that.

The First Urban Iditarod was held in San Francisco in 1994. Traditionally the race is run the first Saturday in March along with the Alaskan version, but it does vary by city and since I am the Queen, I say February is the purrfect time do our CC Urban Iditerod.

As an incentive to run, we will have several ‘check points’ to replenish lost fluids and discuss tales of mayhem. At these check points our Guest Chefs du Jour, Angel Chyna and the Triplets, will have vats of A. Chyna’s famous gumbo. I hear they’re plannin’ on Jambalaya and Chili Catfish Gumbo. The Triplets, Colt, Winchester and Kimber, are makin’ some of their famous fudge. That’ll keep our energy up!

The course will be long and arduous, so dogs and mushers alike need to be ready and able to run their tails off. So gather your carts, gather your friends, decorate your carts and and get your crazy costumes ready, tomorrow mornin’ we race! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Hello Rosie
How are you? Thankfully we survived the severe weather. Yesterday & last night we had torrential rains, gusty winds, scary thunder & lightning, & hail. It stormed for hours with the worst weather from 9 until after 11 p.m. I stayed hidden under Mommy’s bed all night long, until 6 a.m. today. We received over 6 inches of rain. There were numerous tornadoes in Mississippi that caused lots of damage & destruction to homes, businesses, churches, a community college & a prison. Thankfully nobody was killed. A major highway is closed because of flooding. We feel very blessed today ✞

Kisses,
Q Sissy

Hi Rosie,
How are you doing this afternoon? We are all kind of taking it easy. The day started off raining pretty hard. We even got some rain in the basement but now, it is sunny and warm. Mom went outside to feed the birds and we all joined her. That is we were on our leashes while she went to the feeders. She let us stay for about a half hour and then we were ready to come back inside. Mom spent her day doing ironing after washing clothes yesterday, writing some bills and birthday cards for this month, printing out pictures and now, letting me visit with my friends. She may need to join us for a nap. Hehehe.!!! Yesterday we got a shock as the Contractors returned. They checked out the roof from inside the attic and found some boards that will need replaced. They will hopefully start the work in a week or two. Mom is worried as they found some areas that were pretty bad. My sisters and I are worried because that will mean a lot of noise. MOL.!!! I guess we will be in hiding while the guys are here. Perhaps they won't be here long. Have a great day and visit when you can. Purrs and a hug, Mittens...

Before I forget (like I did yesterday!) I have been getting’ a whole lotta compliments on my Queenly profile picture. K. Whiskers’ talented Mom made that awesome picture for me, ain’t it awesome? I think she really managed to capture the essence of Angel Mallow, Beneficent Ruler of the Universe! Um .. I mean, CC Queen of February. Getting’ ahead of myself there, mol.

I have some cool info for ya today ~~ Mom was flippin’ through the latest Catster magazine the other day when she saw somethin’ that goes paw in paw with my Lost & Found campaign. So today I thought I’d share with ya about somethin’ called the Kitty Convict Program.

Put the Royal Bail Fund away, Quincy, we don’t need it. Not for this one anyway. See, the Kitty Convict Program recognizes a problem, bein’ that of the over 7 million pets who go missin’ every year. 26% of dogs get back home, and not even 5% of cats.

Some of the reasons for this: Number One, more dogs wear collars with ID of some kind

Number Two: We felines are better at hidin’ than dogs are and for most of us, hidin’ is our first line of defense – by the way, statistics say that 2/3 of missin’ kitties who are found are found within 4 – 5 houses of where they live. Kitties in my campaign stories are the rare exceptions!

And now, the third reason kitties have a lower return rate: Think about it, when humans see a canine runnin’ around outside, first thing they do is look for a human nearby and if they don’t see one they say “Hey! That doggie must be lost!” But when people see a feline outside, they just say “oh look, a kitty” and don’t think much more of it. They just figure a kitty outside is .. well, a kitty outside! So the ones who do have someone lookin’ for them can miss an important chance to get help getting’ back home!

The Kitty Convict Project humans thought about all this and came up with a bright idea. Literally. They are encouragin’ all indoor kitties to wear orange collars with their ID tag. Why orange? Well for one thing, it’s bright and easy to notice. AND most importantly, because convicts wear orange their mission is to make the colour of “convict orange” an easily recognizable symbol of indoor cats. It lets people know that if they see a kitty outside who is wearin’ an orange collar, that kitty might actually be an “escapee” who needs help getting’ home.

Whether you like it or don’t, we gotta give these humans credit for creative thinkin’! To find out more, you can visit explodingkittens.com/kittyconvict. Just thought I’d pass it on ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Rise & shine, kitties, it’s Groundhog Day! Or as they say in Quebec, Jour de la Marmotte. Oh, the suspense! Will good ol’ Punxsutawney Phil and his many counterparts emerge from their burrow to tell us that spring is on the way, or are we in for six more weeks of winter? I hear that there may be some kitties around who are takin’ bets on this, though I my Angelic self would not know anything about such activities!

You’re all invited to Mallow Castle to watch the results come in from across the continent while enjoyin’ a ‘Mallow Tastin’ Pawty. See, you may not know that I happen to own substantial stock in a little enterprise outta Mississauga Ontario known as the Evie & Mallow Bakery (absolutely a for real place!) and we have brought in a generous assortment of their fine product for the occasion.

Angel Q. Gracie’s earth sibs Jeeves, Cadbury and Mr. Belvedere, collectively known as The Butlers, have accepted the appointment as official Mallow Castle Butlers. They are all wearin’ their finest black & white tuxedoes and are ready to buttle for us today, carryin’ trays of delicious gourmet ‘mallows: Merlot Mallows, Lemon Meringue, Tutti Frutti, Mochaccino, even Peanut Butter & Chocolate.

And of course, before the day is through there will be a special Royal screenin’ of that fine film “Groundhog Day”.

Psst … rumour has it that some of our CC Angels are ready to follow the sun this mornin’ and discreetly provide shade to guarantee that those pesky rodents won’t be seein’ their shadows. Think that counts as cheatin’? ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Hi Rosie,
How are you doing today? We are enjoying a sunny and pretty day so far. It is supposed to warm up to 60 degrees. Mom says that we can go outside this afternoon and I can't wait. Right now Mom is still washing clothes so as soon as she is finished and we have lunch, out we go. Woo Hoo.!!! Believe it or not, we still have some snow around but, that surely should melt today. I am also very happy to be able to visit my friends today. Mom always seems to be busy but I told her that I want to see my friends today and she said ok. I do hope that you are having a nice day as well today. Come by and visit when you can. Purrs and a hug, Mittens... Ps: How is your Dad doing? We have been keeping him in our prayers...

Thank you for pouncing by.....
to help me celebrate my 6th birthday on January 29th! I loved seeing each of you & deeply appreciate the loving hugs, sweet purrs, beautiful balloons, delicious cakes/cupcakes, & other meowvelous goodies that you brought over for the pawty. The extra sweet icing on the cake was winning COTD on the 30th....which happened because of all the birthday votes you left me! Thank you for helping me celebrate both of these special days dear furiends!
********************************************
Happy Groundhog Day!! The annual critter prediction is an early spring...woohoo!! As mild as the winter has been for us we're not surprised but will be keeping our paws crossed that he's right!
I will continue as the family blogger this month since our angel dog took all of my time last month doing his campaign. It was worth it though because he's now King Angel Spike! If you'd like to see him just go to dogChannel.com & click on the Club Dog tab on the far right. You don't have to be a member to do that much...MOL! He'll still be posting a daily blog but won't be visiting as many pages...especially since the format over there allows all of his friends to see the post via notifications. Anyway.....

Patches is doing 100% better since she's being fed wet food (small amounts) several times a day & taking her nutritional supplement. She's got a bounce in her steps again & is back to giving us the 'just try it & get whacked' look...MOL!
The rest of us ornery girls are doing great too but we are looking forward to spring so we can have some open windows to sit in. It's just not the same chirping at birds through triple pane glass...MOL!

Well I've got to run for now because rain/thunderstorms are moving our way & mom doesn't allow us on her laptop in nasty weather. Thank you again for sharing my birthday & COTD winning days last week!!

Happy purrs,

I wanna thank everyone once again for supportin’ me in my campaign, I really had a great time tellin’ you stories and now we are gonna have a blast at the Castle.

Speakin’ of the Castle, you might notice a few changes. It so happens there is an honest-to-goodness real Castle in County Cork Ireland called Mallow Castle … in fact, there’s actually two of ‘em. With that many, they won’t miss one for a month, will they? Angel K. Pushkin knows a kitty who knows a kitty, so we have arranged to have Mallow Castle shipped over to CC-land brick by brick and reassembled by Angel power. It should be done right about … oh, NOW! Welcome to my humble abode, there’s a picture down in my gallery!

Boy, what a claw-biter yesterday! I had plans to get all my final campaign blogs out early and then … CC was DOWN!! All morning! Well, I was not gonna put up with that, I got busy and had some words with the fleas & gremlins but they swore they had nothin’ to do with it this time. Well, they were right. Turns out this time it was those Irish Angels who were workin’ on my Mallow Castle construction project. See, some of ‘em brought their European power tools along and when they plugged ‘em in to the North American sockets … lights out. But we managed to get CC back up with 15 minutes to spare till the coronation was supposedta start. Do I know how to make an entrance or what? See I told ya, Nobody messes with the Mallow!

~ Now, for some Royal appointments ~

My handsome hubs Sir Oscar Jon will of course be my Prince Consort. My pal Kuzi is Official ‘Nip Grower By Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen and, since who knows what kinda shenanigans we might find ourselves up to this month, our February candidate Quincy will be Keeper of the Royal Bail Money. Just in case (wink). Q. Mimi will be my Royal Greenskeeper and we have somethin’ fun planned with that later on!

Since my sister Evie usedta live with Big Sis Becky in Calgary when Becky was goin’ to Chef school, I appoint her to be my Royal Kitchen Manager. For our events this month she has co-ordinated some very special Guest Chefs, so that we can showcase a few of our talented kitties and have lotsa good eats.

We’re kinda informal here around Mallow Castle, and since bein’ Mrs. Mallow Jon makes me & the hubs known as “OJ & MJ”, you can just call me “Queen MJ”

Lookin’ forward to a rockin’ great time! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Wow, the last day of my campaign is here! I was gonna do a wrap-up speech today, but then I realized I just might have one last Lost & Found story to tell. It’s about our Angel Smokey and the second time Big Bro Joe saved his life.

One day when Smokey was about 10, he didn’t come in for supper. Which was unusual. And he wasn’t there in the mornin’, either. OR when the kids got home from school.

The kids and the pawrents looked all over, Mom dismantled the woodpile in the back yard, they checked the shed to make sure he didn’t get locked in and checked every hidin’ place they could think of. They walked around the neighbourhood but no sign of Smokey. Everyone was worried, but Big Bro Joe was a young man on a mission! As soon as he came home from school, never mind playin’ or watchin’ TV, he was out lookin’ for his Smokey!

The third day, Joe came runnin’ into the house “I found Smokey!” Mom went out and sure enough there he was, tucked into a little cubby that the humans didn’t even realize existed, where two sections of fence overlapped right at the end of the neighbours’ hedge. Smokey wasn’t stuck, he could come out by himself but wouldn’t. When Mom reached to touch him, he growled at her! So Dad came out with his big coat and leather gloves, Mom held a baby quilt while Dad reached into the cubby & pulled out Smokey, who still had some fight in him but not very much. Dad plopped Smokey into the blanket, Mom wrapped him up tight and they were off to the vet.

Turned out that Smokey had a really nasty abscess and needed surgery right away. Poor guy had crawled into that little hidey spot to be safe while he sat at the foot of the Rainbow Bridge and waited for the Angels. But thanks to Big Bro Joe it wasn’t time for that yet.

After Smokey did cross and I came to live with the family, one of the things he came back to teach me was that if ya don’t feel right, stick close to the humans. And I listened.

========================

Marmie: FOUND

Since late July 2014, Mike & Jane Lille of Surrey England had been noticin’ a stray orange cat. They first saw it huntin’ in a wide freeway median and by mid-September the kitty had worked its way into their neighbourhood but would run away anytime the Lilles tried to get near. They put out food and slowly it came closer to their house, under their van and then into their garage … then finally into the house. It wasn’t till early November that the Lilles finally were able to take the kitty to the vet to be checked out. The vet scanned for a microchip, found one, and it turns out this kitty was Tracy Brewster’s missing Marmalade! Looks like the no-good ex had driven about 60 miles along the freeway and then pulled over to put Marmalade out in the median, where he was probably expected to go runnin’ out into traffic and come to a bad end. But Marmie got the last laugh there, the pampered senior indoor cat survived almost 4 months!

A very happy Tracy Brewster posted this message to her faithful Marmie Army on November 19th 2014:

“Marmie was found in Surrey and had been there from day one. I would never of found him had he not been chipped. Marmie has had the most horrendous time. He has been fending for himself up until the last 2 weeks, he was seen in a central reservation with motorways each side of him, after a few days of him going missing, my baby was out on his own for over three-and-a-half months, my cat was a house cat and I would of never believed he could of looked after himself but he did, he is ok and he slept with me all last night.”

The Lille’s wrote to Tracy “Seeing you reunited with him was wonderful. We had no idea of Marmie’s story and the search for him. It took us totally by surprise! …. We are so pleased to have ended your nightmare and wish you both all the best.”

Sadly, when Tracy took Marmie to be checked out they found that he had developed kidney failure and after 11 months back in the arms of his devoted Mum he crossed the Bridge October 23, 2015. The Find Marmie FB page continues in his honour, devoted to helpin’ lost pets get back home.

The final word hasta go to Marmie’s Mum “ .. if you have lost your cat never ever give up and do whatever you can to find them, go that bit further & it will pay off & if not at least you can say you have done everything possible for your baby.”

Marmie: LOST!!

This story’s a two parter to round out my campaign. It happened in 2014 in England, and my family had a front-row seat to watch it unfold because the kitty involved usedta be one of our compadres on a site called ShowmeCats.

It all started with a great big orange fluffy kitty named Marmalade, who had been with his special person Tracy Brewster of Maidstone, Kent for 13 years. Marmie, as Tracy called him, was his Mom’s pampered baby and had been with her longer than her current husband. The husband wasn’t current for long, as it happens, things went bad and the couple separated. Then on July 21, 2014 Marmie vanished from a walk in the enclosed yard of his house.

Tracy was frantic, and all the more so when it came out that her ex was responsible for Marmie’s disappearance. He appeared in court charged with taking the kitty, was found guilty but spitefully refused to say anything about Marmie’s whereabouts other than that he had turned him loose “somewhere”.

Tracy did not take this lyin’ down, she actually quit her job and devoted herself to searching for Marmalade full-time. Soon she had a group of supporters she called "Marmie’s Army", who helped distribute posters, flyers and publicize Marmie’s cause through media interviews and a FB group called "Find Marmie". Tracy told TV and newspapers:

“We are desperate to find Marmie – a friendly, long haired ginger cat who has been stolen and dumped somewhere. Marmalade is a beautiful, long haired, light ginger neutered male cat. He has a freckled right eye and a bald lower belly. He is microchipped. He is totally and utterly adored by his mum who is desperate and devastated without him .”

Tracy also had a Twitter feed and the “Find Marmie” FB page soon had upwards of 2,400 followers. The UK news media took Marmalade to heart and his story was followed nationwide. An article on Page 3 of the London Daily Telegraph summed up:

“Rarely has the search for a cat been carried out with such passion and heroic persistence. The story has been widely featured in the press.”

So does the Marmie Army come through? Ya just hafta wait till tomorrow.

Same CAT-time, same CAT-Channel!

Many thanks, Dame Rosie and furamily
Neelix here. On behalf of my precious wife, Katie Louise Brown, please allow me to thank each and every one of our CC Furamily who have stopped by to lend support, love and concatulations for Katie's COTD, those who have left prayers for Angel Monty, for their dear mom. Dee, and for the entire Brown Six Pack.

Mom Dee is unable to do much blogging at this time because of her optical condition, and the recent crossing of Angel Monty, so I am honored to extend my Katie's heartfelt gratitude for the COTD Award. It has definitely raised her spirits and put a smile on her sweet furry face. Thank you all. We love you.

Many purrs, K. Neelix

Come visit me, Sir Hedley, K. Neelix (Katie's guy) & Count Jakar (Vote QUINCY for COTM).
