No worries, my sweet Shai,
Your Mom has enough going on right now without putting any stress on herself about learning new cat sites! Her job right now is healing and she's working very hard on it! We know where to find one another.

We ARE dancing in my profile picture! That's one of the ones from our wedding, where we are dancing the Hora. I thought there wasn't much better way to go out on CC than remembering our happiest day ever! -- love, Evie

Oh, my darling Shai!
Mom got home from Day 4 of the week of job-hunting seminars she's been going to this week, she did all her human stuff and then logged on to let us do our CC blogging and what did she see but that nasty eviction notice hanging there!

Well, one thing is for sure, we won't be going to Catster because it appears from the FB notifications Mom sees in her e-mail that they've had the very same notice posted on THEIR front door!

We have an account over on the site that the NICE Crew built two years ago, back when it first looked like CC was going to close. That's at http://catmewsroom.freeforums.net I think your family joined back then but probably haven't done much since. We're pretty good at getting around over there even though we don't visit much. You can post pictures on one anothers' pages there and that is pretty cool.

It's a learning curve, though, and if your Mom would rather have someplace a little more straightforward, my family also has pages on YouPet.com

We'll be visiting both sites regularly, and of course Mom will be on the CC/FB group. You said it, Together Forever!

The plan for MHL is to continue on the Freeforums site, unless the Commish should decide to change that. I don't know about the sailboat race, but wherever they have it, the girls are going to do our best to win! I would love to go up the St. Lawrence after spending time on Mackinac Island! Looks like we will suddenly have some free time on our paws, mol.

Oh, I am SURE glad your Mom missed being home when all the excitement was going on and I am really, REALLY glad that they caught that bad guy and he's not still possibly lurking around your area somewhere! -- love & kisses, ♥ your Evie always

Hi my darling Shai!
Yes, we know your Mom's behind is dragging from that chemo, and what energy she does have needs to go to work and your Earthlings of course. It's a long haul for her and we're always sending her good healing thoughts!

It's great that you could slip away from Angel dust duty long enough to try out King Angel Elmie's bowling alley and enjoy a nice dinner too.

Let's spend the next couple of weeks on the water, getting ready for Sebs & Angel Kieara's sailboat race! Even though we'll be on competing teams we can practice together. Though I do have to remind you that we girls WON last year and we intend to do our best to win this year too! Winner serves (ahem) "non-winner" breakfast in bed! -- Kisses, ♥ Evie

Hi my darling Prince of the Palms!
I was saying Happy Birthday to Angel Jes & just had to stop in & give you a kiss! And to let you know that I just signed us up for Angel Kieara and her family's annual Port Huron to Mackinac Island sailboat race. It will be July 15, 16 & 17th while she's running for COTM (EEEEE!! I am SO excited about that!). I know your Mom probably won't be there to blog or follow along the actual boats, but could I pass up a chance for us to race one another and spend some time at the romantic Grand Hotel afterward? I think not! The girls' team is going to try their hardest to beat the guys and the Angels! -- Love & kisses, Evie

Hi Angel Shai, Aria and all Angels
Oh, what a beautiful day on the Rainbow Bridge! The sun is shining, the clouds are fluffy, there is a slight breeze blowing and I see kites in the sky overhead!

I am working in my garden today, picking weeds out of the ground that surround my lovely daffodils and tulips. My tulips have not bloomed yet, but the leaves are up and I have a whole side of daffs to the right of my porch!

I wanted to invite all of you to a picnic tomorrow on Sunshine Mountain..it is going to be a beautiful day. Feel free to bring anything you wish. I am bringing some Apple tarts I made and some catnip baked beans, AJ is bringing some hotdogs, bratwurst and catbeer!

It will be after morning Church services for all the Angels that attend Church and last til dinner time or later..you can bring kites if you want or anything else..let's have a fun day!!

Hope to see you there

Hi my darling Shai!
I'm sure glad we were at the Castle yesterday because you would not BELIEVE how Mom celebrated St. Patricks Day!

After she got CC done and went & delivered her paper route, she decided to take advantage of a couple of days of windows-open weather to do the painting job on her bedroom ceiling that she's had the equipment for since back in the fall.

She did some very strange things to that room, she put some very unusual smelling cloths on the floor and even hung some old ratty sheets over the window and the closet doors! I hoped she wasn't going to leave it like that, it looked really stupid! And then the outfit she put on!! A set of old orange coveralls and she had her hair tucked into an old pillowcase with a truckers hat overtop of it. NOT gonna make the fashion pages in that getup!

Then she locked herself in the room and some really nasty smells were seeping out. She & Mike & the Moj slept in Big Bro Joe's old room last night and now today things have to "air out" some more before that nasty smell will actually be gone. She says she will never, ever EVER paint again. But I'll bet she does, mol.

So overall, I think WE had way more fun yesterday that our Moms did! I was loving the mini-golf with the revolving shamrock, and the Irish jig disco dancing was actually fun just like President Queen Quincy told us it would be.

Well let's see ... when CC goes down ... we're both already on Catster but it's not for sure anymore right now whether THEY will survive either. We have an account on Youpet where a lot of our friends are setting up these days for when The Big One hits, you'd probably like it over there.

And of course we're still on the Cat Mews Room Forum that the NICE Kitties' mom built. That's where we're having hockey right now on the days that the cyber-fleas take over CC. Your family has an account there but I don't know if you've actually ever used it. That site is harder to use than YouPet, but the fun part is that you can post pictures in your blogs. We'll do just fine when we have to.

I hope your Mom is doing better today! Mine has a scratchy throat a bit today, she thinks it's from all the flowers that are opening up all of a sudden .... and the paint fumes yesterday didn't help, so she's taking it easy today after she delivers her papers. Though Big Bro Will says the shower is acting weird, sounds like the diverter Mom replaced back in the fall has packed it in again so she might have a trip out to the plumbing supply place today too. Yuck!

But she says at least the ceiling is done and the ugly stains are no more. -- ♥ kisses, Evie

Thanks A Shai & family
Thank you for coming to my Happy ❿th Birthday pawty. Mommy says it is hard to believe that I am 10 years old already. It seems like just yesterday that I was a cute little six week old kitten, and now I’m all grown up & weigh almost 16 pounds. No matter how big or old I get, I will always be Mommy’s baby.

I received lots of pawsome gifts for my birthday. My favs are the Cruizin’ Critter, a mew blinky ball (my other ones stopped blinking) and two nano Hexbug kitty toys. You can see pics on the bottom of my page. Come on over & we can play with my mew toys.

❤Thanks for sharing my special day with me. I am blessed to have spent all 10 of my birthdays with my CC furiends. ❤

Leaving you a big hunk of my Chicago Cubs cake (Mommy’s furiend Rose who owns www.rosebakes.com made it for me) & some micey cream.

Purrs to you,
K Casper Todd, the Birthday Boy

Hi my sweet Shai!
Mom is feeling pretty good, it was just a rough couple of days. Thursday morning we all woke up at 4:30 a.m. to gale-force winds blowing and that kept up till afternoon. We got lucky, our power only went out twice & just for a few minutes and our fence and the big trees in the back yard were all fine. A tree blew down across our road, fences were down all over town and when Mom did her paper route up one of the side roads she saw where a tree came down & took out a corner of someone's roof.

Then Saturday she had Dad's taxes to deal with, including totaling up all the receipts because he was self-employed. She just really needed to veg for a day or so after she got home & we were only too happy to help, mol. Your purr therapy helped a lot too.

Now she's rested & regrouped and is almost feeling ready to start that long overdue repainting job that needs done in her room. This includes the ceiling. I will watch carefully to learn from her mistakes for when we're ready to paint the ceiling at our house.

That is if we're going to paint the ceiling. Maybe we should just go for natural fibres and save the whole "paint drops are falling on my head" thing. -- your Evie

hello A. Shai
THERAPY CATS - DAY 4
the week is going by soo fast! thank you all for all your wonderful comments and votes of support.
did you know the President Q. Quincy's family has a doggie sibling that is in training to be a Therapy Dog? and Spanky Jack's g'ma lives with many resident Therapy Cats. isn't it wonderfu? i never knew..

Therapy cats are assets in many situations.
One group that benefits greatly from a little cat-love therapy is children.
Therapy cats have been used to help kids with developmental disorders like autism be more comfortable with the world around them. Therapy cats are also especially valuable to the elderly or when interacting with Alzheimer's Disease or dementia patients, by stimulating both memory and forgotten emotions.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ba1PEHRAZo

i am going to try to go easy on you all for a couple of days. our furless is here this weekend..and Mom, my secretary, always goes a little bit crazy. and, i, *blushing* go hide a little bit, aigh..i don't think i would make a very good Therapy Cat.

prayers to Mom Lillian and her family

My sweet darling Shai,
we can go ANYwhere! And MHL is a good place to start, sure you can come with us.

Are you kidding? The FISH on Pinto Island are telling stories?? Oh my goodness I wonder if they’re selling them to the Cational Enquirer? For imported shrimp and mealworms? Um … maybe we should rethink that glass panel in the floor now …. Or at least keep a big rug handy, mol.

Oh yes, our Mom’s doing just fine. Trying to get some things done now that the Queen MJ show has closed its run. Dad’s tax people are starting to call & that’s a bit of a bummer, one of his clients who had a PO box here in town has finally closed it & got his paperwork being mailed to where he actually lives. Little things like that, Mom calls them “those little goodbyes”.

She’s had the breadmaker going full tilt the last couple of days, I snagged us a nice fresh loaf to enjoy after hockey. Let’s go picnicking in the botanical gardens & see what’s starting to bloom! – love and more love, your Evie

Oh, but my darling,
the Amanacer is YOURS! At the end of her reign, Queen Lola gave all of the Royal Navy ships to their captains to keep! At least, that's what Mikey said when he brought the Oceano home. I sure home they're not looking for him out there somewhere .... I DO seems to remember Steve & BeeGee saying something about Mikey's picture being on the wall in the Coast Guard office ... but I'm pretty sure that has to do with the time they stole it for an international poker night. Almost sure.

And Raven has been sailing her Luz de Luna ALL over the world and no one's come after her yet, mol. So I would say the Amanacer is all yours, fair and square. So there you go, we have a yacht to cruise on when we want to, and a piece of land to build ourselves a home base on Pinto Island. And one another, what more could a couple of kitties possibly ask for?

Oh, definitely the house has to extend over the water! Brown wood & thatched roof are purrfect. And lots of tropical touches inside.

And NO Jackalope heads on the wall. That thing hanging over A. Mallow's mantle really creeps me out! -- all my love, your Evie

Well, kitties, while I did manage to wangle a Bonus Day outta Management this month, they wouldn’t go for the indefinite extension, mol. The 29th of February has come and they will be pryin’ the crown outta my claws … I mean (ahem) I will be graciously passin’ the crown to my worthy successor Quincy tonight at 5 p.m. Pacific time, 8 p.m. Eastern on the Cats Meow Resort page #271826

I’ve stocked up on flea spray and have the dungeon waitin’ for any CC Gremlins that might try to show up and give us any guff. I run a TIGHT (beer can) ship around here, mol.

It’s been a real blast bein’ your Queen of February, and I wanna thank all of you for makin’ the last two months a time I will always remember! I specially wanna give shout-outs to
• Kuzi, my Official ‘Nip Grower by Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen;
• Quincy, the Keeper of the Royal Bail Fund;
• Royal Greenskeeper Q. Mimi
• Royal Butlers Jeeves, Cadbury & Mr. Belvedere

• And of course my Prince Consort Oscar Jon, who helps keep my Afterlife excitin’

A special thank you as well to K. Whiskers and his Mom for the rockin’ picture that I have put back up as my profile picture.

Tomorrow Prince OJ & I are headin’ off on a well-earned retirement to the French Riviera, we’re gonna take our Harleys along to ride those awesome roads, between stretches of layin’ around on the beach. As for the blogger, she’s got some projects around the house that she’s gonna need to get started on soon.

There’s a special Mallow Out Loyal Subject award in my gallery for everyone who’s come along on this crazy journey with me. For each of the Hairballz Rainbow Riders who have been Royals, there’s a special helmet waitin’ for you in my gallery too.

Thanks again, I couldn’t have done it without ya! Love ya all! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

❀ Reporting from Mallows Bay ❀
The sun is high in the sky and we’ve just finished Chef Maggie Meme’s amazing lunch of Beer Battered Fish with Beer Battered Onion Rings; and Barley Beer Soup. Now the regatta continues ~

WHAT is this? A floatin’ Easter basket? Nope, it’s Gin Gin, Maggie Meme and Spike, in a boat decorated as an Easter Basket. Spike has lined it with sod & grass, and Maggie Meme & Gin Gin have filled it with decorated Ukranian East Eggs. Live Easter bunnies (on loan and with full protection regalia) ride’ with them amid red tulips, yellow daffodils, and purple hyacinths. Hope everyone can swim!

Lily & RennieBoots got their Mom to finish off the Kirkland Light and they are in the water! Quincy’s brothers and K. Leo are doin’ a bit better with their St. Pauli Girl & Dr Pepper craft. Not a leak to be seen, to the relief of Rev. Loki who doesn’t want to get his wings wet. Sammy and Luke keep drinkin’ and strappin’ their empties on the side with duct tape as they go. Here come the Hockeytown Cats with Mischief & Dayzee bailin’ water & usin’ the oars, tryin’ to keep up.

K. Whiskers & Q. Talley made their boat from soda cans with some Red Bull & Monster energy drink cans for extra oomph. They’ve also used some carbonated soda cans, unopened until they are in the water when they pop the tops on the "agua con gas" cans and hope their boat takes off like a flash! Or at least doesn’t sink.

Angels Q. Gracie & K. Max have the full moon flag flyin’ high above the “Ol’ Rootie Tootie”. Watch out for the “Misty on the Bay”, Greycee Mist has fired up a battery operated hair dryer to get some extra momentum.

The “Zoo Crew’s Cutter” is bobbing along, slowed down a bit by the full cans of Sam Adams on board but Pique and the guys are doing their best to lighten the load <hic!>. Sebs & Timothy’s cans of choice are Faygo & Vernors, their sisters have outfitted them with crash helmets and water wings, looks like they might be needin’ both before the day is through!

Puzzle got to the beer can shed late, but he is not deterred. He got an old 18 wheeler inner tube and painted a nice sunrise over the water with palm trees and flamingos on the shore. He glued on a can holder shaped like a manatee and used mom's "grab-it stick” and her king sized pillow case with red hibiscus for a sail. Not technically a beer can boat? Those empties training behind in the water say otherwise!

The Beer Can Regatta Concludes ~
As the sun starts to sink in the West, Chef Maggie Meme has put the finishing touches on our supper of Beer Brisket, with Beer Can Chicken in the BBQ pit and for dessert, Beer Cake with Caramel Icing

Bringing up the rear in our Beer Can Regatta is K. Tuck in the “Grogmonsta”. It’s had some tough going since it is burdened down by a full dance floor complete with disco ball. And dancers! And a full bar, dispensing as they go. The Pawty Animals rush to grab it as it crosses the finish line and drag it up into the park, can’t let any of that brew go in the drink!

Our intrepid racers will find entertainment as K. Tuck cranks up the live music and the kitties, now dried off & changed, start dancing to the “Beer Barrel Polka” and move on from there.

We round out the weekend with fireworks over Mallows Bay before we head back to Mallow Castle, where everything has been made ready for the coronation of Queen Quincy.

❀ Reporting from Mallows Bay ❀
Good morning, Beer Can Sailors! The (snicker) worthy vessels have been inspected and are waitin’ to sail to glory. Or to the bottom of the bay, mol. To get us in the proper mood, Guest Chef Maggie Meme has prepared a breakfast of Beer Batter Pancakes, Beer Sausage, Grilled Steak & Eggs with Beer & Molasses, and toast & jam made with Beer Bread.

Throughout the day there will be a Beer Garden for refreshments AND emergency boat repairs, K. Whiskers & Q. Talley brought kegs of catnip juice as well. Beside the reviewing stand, Royal Maestro K. Pushkin conducts the Mallowwood Bowl Orchestra in classical arrangements of beer commercial themes and drinking songs from around the world. A. Q. Cherish is flyin’ her sail plane overhead and takin’ pictures for her memory book which she will share with us.

To start us out, Queen MJ and Prince OJ for the 4th year in a row are sailing “The Eyesore”. Queen MJ waves to the crowd while Prince OJ tries valiantly to bail out the water that is slowly seeping in. They manage to make it out into the Bay, around the marker buoys and to the finish line. Whew! Relieved, they return to the reviewing stand and Queen MJ declares:

“Let the Regatta begin!”

Sams & his pal Exit Rocketman have been collecting “Rolling Rock” cans and they’re off to a good start. Their vessel is staying on top of the water. Mostly. Now come Angel Misty & her Angel sibs, sailing the “Misty on the Bay” with one of Mom’s old bedsheets for a sail and Angel Moki is holding two cans of Dad’s aerosol deodorant out the back of his family’s entry to propel them through the water.

The boats just keep on coming! Here come the Zoo Crew, their tails are dragging in the water but they valiantly sail on. Q. Mimi’s “Queen Mimi”, also makin’ its 4th appearance, does seem to be as seaworthy as she’s claimed. A. K. Easy & the V.I. Kitties are sailin’ in style, the cans are somethin’ called “Steel Reserve” and it’s inspired the kitties inside to turn a few extras into musical instruments. With lots of V.I. Kitties, there are enough to play that wonderful steel drum music from the Islands.

Hi my darling Shai!
Oh, a yacht would be lovely to travel to other islands on! But we still need a beachfront home on the property you bought. Something with lots of windows and a deck that reaches out over the water.

Oh good, our boat arrived safely at Mallows Bay, now let’s just inspect it one more time and early in the morning we’ll start stringing the flowers on it. This is going to be fun!

I've brought us a special bottle of catpagne, we have another celebration tonight because you, my love, YOU got not one but TWO assists in your game tonight against Thunderclan! -- kisses, Evie

It’s almost Beer Can Regatta time!

As one by one the finishing touches are put on our fine array of watercraft (snicker) and they are loaded onto transports, I wanna introduce you to my Mystery Destination, the place where we will be sailin’ our fine vessels. This is an absolutely for truly real place. It’s on the Potomac in Charles County, Maryland and it is called .. Mallows Bay!

And even better, as if bein’ named after ME ain’t great enough, let me introduce the wonder that is …. Are ya ready for this one …. The Ghost Fleet of Mallows Bay!

Here’s how it came to be: During World War 1 the US Government announced plans to build 1,000 supply ships for the war effort. Boatyards across the country started churning out wooden steamships. But there was a problem: The ships were put together so fast that they were kinda barely seaworthy. And then just as the first hulls were hittin; the water, the war ended. The government was left with over 200 obsolete, leaky boats. Long (long, LONG) story short, they ended up in Mallows Bay on the Potomac where they sit today, the largest shipwreck fleet in the Western Hemisphere. And possibly even the world (Yay, we’re #1. Well, YOU are, I’m a Canadian).

Because they’re made of wood, after almost 100 years each vessel has become a mini-ecosystem with trees up to 40 feet high and all kinds of vegetation growing out of ‘em. The wrecks are now home to Osprey, water fowl, and other wildlife. Bald Eagles nest in the nearby trees along the shore. There’s a picture of the bay with its Ghost Fleet in my gallery.

There’s a Mallows Bay Park there now, with boat ramps and everything, and that’s where the Beer Can Regatta will start tomorrow. Tonight, Prince O.J. & I are gonna kayak through the wrecks in the moonlight. Then we might or might not have a romantic hideaway ready on one of the ghostie ships. We ain’t tellin’. See you there! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Oh, gee, I have been so busy that I almost forgot one of my very favourite holidays! Yesterday was Inconvenience Yourself Day. But I remembered in time to celebrate.

First of all, to start things off right, on Tuesday night I put my alarm clock in the bathroom and locked the door. When it went off in the mornin’ not only did I have to pick the lock with a knittin’ needle (which I had to find first, it’s not like I knit or anything ~ as IF!) to get to the (ahem!) facilities, the stupid alarm was playing “Who Let the Dogs Out? Woof, woof woof woof woof!” full blast the whole time!

Then it was time for my mornin’ shower. Plannin’ ahead, I had turned off the water heater Tuesday mornin’ and hadda wait for it to heat back up. Apologies to those guests of Mallow Castle who might also have been inconvenienced by this one … guess I shoulda posted a warning sign or two, huh?

Then I headed off to my mornin’ golf game but first I hadda unthaw my Harley key, which I froze in a block of ice Tuesday night before retiring. I hadda wonder if I’d even make it to the golf course because I siphoned about, oh … 4.8 gallons of gas from my 5 gallon tank. Yuck! Ptoooie! And of course, I wasn’t carryin’ any spare gas OR my wallet with me! Do I know how to celebrate or what?!

Then it was time to get to work with Prince OJ on our beer can boat. Of course, I hadda blindfold myself first. And mix up the tools!

Then I finished out the day at home watching TV! Of course, because it was still Inconvenience Yourself Day, I had asked Prince O.J. to hide the remote so every time I wanted to flip the channel I hadda get up and do it the cavecat way! Then I finished out this very special day by climbing into my cozy soft bed, which I had of course inconveniently short-sheeted when I made it in the morning.

See why this is one of my favourite holidays of the year?

Hi my Prince of the Palms!
MOL, great minds think alike on the tag lines!

They totally DO say Shaloha in Hawaii, it’s in the Urban Dictionary & everything! I think that is way beyond cool and I’m glad I ran across it.

What a wonderful surprise, a plot of land on Pinto Island! I am loving that! Sure, we could build a treehouse like A. Mallow’s, or .. oh, a houseboat would be nice too! Oh don’t worry, NOT one made out of beer cans, mol. There are so many cute houseboats out there. Why, we could even have BOTH! The pawsibilities are endless and so is our love.

I love the orchids, no way are they going on a boat that might (will probably, mol) sink, but I think the catpagne bottles will do just fine. There we go, just cork them up tight and they’re almost like pontoons! What a special evening with my special & very wonderful husband. Can you believe it’s been 2 years already? I sure can’t! -- ♥ Your Evie

It seems that when I had that “talk” with the fleas and gremlins about how they’d better quit messin’ around with our beloved CC or else, I musta thrown a scare into all you kitties too. Looks like we’re goin’ into our 4th day where NO one’s brave enough to climb up into the COTD window! Why, I musta even scared ‘em over at the other channels … Dog and Horse Channels’ Windows of Fame are also empty, while Bird and Small Animal Channels have had the same member in theirs since Saturday! And we won’t even talk about how long that Tank of the Week has been in the window over on Fish Channel!

Yeah, weird events are happenin’, but really, what would you expect with me in the Castle? None of it stops the kitties workin’ on their beer can boats. K. Bennie is doin’ a great job tendin’ the beer can shed and Angel Misty & her sisters have commandeered their Dad’s lawn tractor to help shuttle the cans to the various buildin’ projects.

Angels Gracie & Max have dibs on the Fosters, Bud Lite and Dad’s Root Beer empties for their vessel “Ol’ Rootie Tootie”. K. Tuck’s project is still under wraps, but he just took delivery of a coupla kegs and some beer taps? What IS that boy up to?

Spanky Jack is collectin’ Pepsi cans to put together a patriotic lookin’entry. He’s lookin’ for paint now to stencil the name on with. And that begs the question, when ya christen a beer can boat, just what DO ya use?

Angels Red, Moki, Duchess and Frosty’s creation is comin’ along so well that they are considerin helpin’ their Earthling sisters Mischief & Dayzee. MOST Angelic of ya, but remember we wanna keep Dayzee very very busy so she will stick close to home. Gin Gin has gotten together with Maggie Meme and her niece Spike and they are hard at work. Sebs & Timothy have gone for Labatts Blue and Strohs empties to create their masterpiece.

The mystery of Mimi’s missin’ Old Rats Breath empties has been solved. Turns out that her brothers Blackstone & Grayson ran off with ‘em and were playin’ a rousing game of Kick the Can. Psst … I think Mimi mighta kicked THEIR cans, know what I mean?

Close call at MY house, Mom almost found all the cans that Puzzle brought over and stuffed under Mom’s bed! Why, Mom mighta sent my little sis Moji Blackbear to Rehab if Evie hadn’t found the stash first! She’s cleared ‘em out and she & A. Shai and his sibs are all puttin’ ‘em to good use.

Throughout the grounds of Mallow Castle we hear the sounds of kitties at work with staplers, scissors, hammers and of course that miracle substance, duct tape. K. Steve had a little trouble with his glue gun, though. (whisper) I don’t think anyone will notice that patch of missin’ fur! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Happy Anniversary, my Prince of the Palms!
I guess that makes no sense till you read Queen MJ's blog down below, but she gave us Royal titles and I hear she's putting on a luau for us tonight. Kosher of course, no roast pigs involved whatsoever, mol. Mom made us a special picture in honour of the occasion.

Mom likes that "shaloha" saying that she came across, I think that might make a good name for our beer can boat. We can drape flowers all over it. We may still sink (PROBABLY will still sink, mol) but we will look very classy doing it!

Big hugs and kisses from the happiest kitty in all of CC -- your Princess of the Palms, Evie ♥

Wow, what a Full Moon pawty weekend! See why these bashes are legendary? Hope ya liked Prince O.J. & I dressed as Douglas Fairbanks & Mary Pickford, the original power couple, mol. Angel Q. Gracie and her Angel K. Max rocked it as Catgelina Jolie and Purr-ad Pitt. And a big thanks to Angels Elmie & Pouncer for that absolutely rockin’ spread they put on!

We are back at Mallow Castle now and preparations for the Beer Can Regatta go on. Mimi is all aflutter because it appears that someone ran off with some of her stash of beer cans. If ya see anyone besides Mimi constructin’ with Ol’ Rats Breath empties, those cans are probably ill-gotten. This has been a public service announcement, mol.

Quincy says her brothers and her hubs K. Leo are workin’ together, they are safe from the Wrath of Mimi since their cans of choice are St. Pauli Girl and Dr. Pepper. Whiskers and his sisters are safe too, they have a theory that usin’ Red Bull and Monster energy drink cans will give that extra “oomph” to their boat.

Meanwhile, Lily & RennieBoots are workin’ on an entry and so are the Zoo Crew. K. Tuck and his pals are also workin’ on an entry, top-secret and kept under a tarp. Q. Mimi says there had better not be any Ol’ Rats Breath cans under there!

As the day’s construction ends, the kitties gather outside the Great Hall where a “Do Not Enter” sign has been posted all day. There’s been some activity here durin’ our weekend away, and as soon as Evie & Angel Shai come in from workin’ on their boat we’ll let ya in on it. Oh, here they are!

<Ahem!> Today is a very special day for these two kitties, it’s the two year anniversary of the day we all gathered to watch them exchange their vows under the Chuppah in what we thought was probably the last wedding on CC. We are very glad to have been wrong about that!

Since my sis and bro-in-law are partial to the tropics, on this their anniversary I would like to honour them with the titles of “Prince and Princess of the Palms” and celebrate their special day with a luau …. Kosher style.

Our first course is “Shoyu Chicken”, boneless chicken thighs simmered with flavors of soy, ginger and brown sugar, just long enough to fall apart at forks touch. We will of course enjoy this with rice, a typical staple of the islands.

For dessert, there is nothing better than classic Malasadas. These are Portuguese fried doughnuts, light and dense pillows and these ones have guava and lilikoi filling. I dare anyone to stop at just one. Master Baker Angel Sandy has made a very special anniversary cake, seafood & tuna, half & half! She made cupcakes, too!

Aloha…or as many Jewish people in the Islands like to say, Shaloha! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Hello Dahlings!

Just getting’ myself in the mood because here in Mallowwood on Pinto Island not only is it a pawty to celebrate the Full Snow Moon, tonight we have an extra special Full Snow Moon, it’s also … hey wait a minute. I was all set to announce that it’s Academy Award night but it turns out that <ahem> SOMEone who shall be nameless was lookin’ at out of date info. Oscar night is NEXT week!

Well, we’re here THIS week so I think we can still get dressed up like our favourite movie stars and honour the Oscars on this Full Moon pawty night. Q. Lily has been decoratin’ like crazy, K. Spongie is shinnyin’ up the palm trees to string fairy lights shaped like snowflakes and a replica Academy Award sits in the middle of each table.

As a very special treat, we have A K. Pushkin the Royal Maestro conductin’ the Mallowwood Bowl Orchestra playin’ Great Movie Themes. Didn’t know we had an orchestra, didja? Why, I didn’t even know we had a bowl!

And speakin’ of bowls, OH the food that Chefs Angels Elmie & Pouncer have prepared! It wouldn’t even fit in my blog so the menu posted only on the CMR page!

By the way, Prince Oscar Jon is all pumped about the “Oscars” because he is convinced that the whole thing is named after him. I just hope this ain’t gonna be like that time he commandeered the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile on its national tour! Um, my Prince, that statue you just set down as the centrepiece of the head table IS a replica, ain’t it? Um … AIN’T it?

Be at the ready, Quincy, I think there just may be a slight chance that we might be needin’ that bail fund you’re holdin’ … then again, Pinto Island has no extradition treaties with anyone, I think we might be alright.

Let the celebration begin! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

“♫ And the DAYS dwindle down … to a PREC-ious few …. ♫” Okay, okay, I’ll try not to be such a drama Queen. But I’m goin’ into the last week of my reign, hard though it is to believe! To illustrate how fast my time in Mallow Castle has flown, I’ve changed my profile picture from my Mom’s masterpiece to the one that the CMR Crew created for their COTM Hall of Fame page. I wanna say once again how much I appreciate all of you lettin’ me immerse you in the weird & wonderful world of Mallow this month.

I tell ya though, I think there must be a curse on Q. Mimi’s golf course! When SHE wanted to do it, CC went down. And now the day I had the grand opening, CC went down again. Does CC just not like golf or somethin’??

Well, CC actin’ up yesterday mornin’ gave us more time to spend on the links, and we thank Ana & Haley & their Angels for hostin’ board games day in the Great Hall, and Chef Engine for the great grubs. Some of which included actual grubs, mol. The latest entries in the Beer Can Regatta are Q. Kelsee and the Hockeytown Cats, and Q. Talley & her family are gonna build a boat too. Theirs will be the one made outta soda cans. The Regatta sails next weekend, I’ll keep ya posted.

Now … do I dare ramp up the Mallow-ness to almost full power without blowin’ CC’s circuits again? I hope so, because today I wanna introduce you to another special part of my CC world, Angel Q. Gracie’s special Caribbean retreat of Pinto Island.

Some of you need no introduction, Queen Gracie reigned from Pinto Island back in July of 2012 & some of us loved it so much we decided to become semi-purrmanent residents. I built myself a humble beach hut and to my amazement, around it has sprung up over the years the beach hut community of Mallowwood (yep, actually I DO name everything after myself, just call me the Donald Trump of CC!). A. Q. Gracie even honoured me with the title Mayor Mallow of Mallowwood, and before I crossed the Bridge Prince OJ built me a rockin’ tree house overlookin’ the entire island. This is where he popped the question on what turned out to be the night before I crossed (sniff). This awesome treehouse is also where we stay while on Pinto Island and the special Moon Flag of Mallowwood flies from the balcony whenever Mayor Mallow is in residence.

A long-standin’ tradition on Pinto Island is the Full Moon Pawty, and it just so happens that the full moon is tomorrow and that’s why we’re here! Guest Chefs Angels Elmie & Pouncer have been cookin’ up a storm in preparation for our arrival so let’s get settled in. ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Hi my darling Shai!
I hope your Mom didn't try too hard to get to hockey last night because CC was doing very strange things & no one could get in. We're just glad that it's back up today!

A nice lazy morning sounds great, I think we've both earned it! You watching over your Mom and me getting better from my UTI. I'll order in some cranberry tea and cranberry scones when we're ready to get up.

Then we can try out Mimi's golf course and some of Engine's Candied Crickets & later on we can join in the board games. -- love & kisses, your Evie

The traffic in & out of the beer can shed has been brisk, with kitties cartin’ away cans (not in those shopping carts we already took back to the supermarket, I hope!), choosin’ up teams and sketchin’ out carefully guarded plans for their beer can vessels. So far my signup sheet has A. Easy & the V.I. Kitties, Spanky Jack, A. Misty & her sisters … Steve is in as long as no one makes him be the rudder like last time (snicker), my bro-in-law A. Shai’s family are in and he & Evie are gonna pilot their special love boat. Dayzee’s family are gonna keep her busy so she don’t even think about runnin’ off and explorin’ again. Good thinkin’!

Mimi says that her “Queen Mimi” is as shipshape as it ever was (infer from that what you will), so she’s gonna head for her Extreme Adventure golf course with her catty J.C., who is feelin’ better and eager to carry some golf clubs around. The course is busy today too, with kitties tryin’ to master that tricky last hole. Medics are standin’ by!

For those who wanna take a break from beer can construction or would just like to stick to indoor activities, you’re in luck. Ana, Haley and all their Angels are gonna host a games day for us in the Great Hall! They’ve brought all our favourites: Mousetrap, Twister, Catopoly, Go Fish, you name it. Bring your own favourites along too.

I’m gonna be a bit later gettin’ around to your pages today, the blogger is abandoning her duty this mornin’ to go to a class on home renos, and she has a coupla other places to stop too. So make yourselves at home and Chef Engine is still here with her culinary creations.

Good morning, loyal subjects! If anyone ain’t heard yet, Dayzee is HOME!!

And in that celebratory spirit, have I got a treat for ya today! My Royal Greenskeeper Q. Mimi has been workin’ hard and the climbin’ orchids look really great on the walls of Mallow Castle. Now that we found out who’s been markin’ his territory on ‘em and dealt with the problem in a timely fashion, that is. But Mimi wanted to have this appointment in the first place so that she could do a very special project for us.

Some of ya might remember that when Mimi was Queen CC had some ginormous issues and went down for a whole week! That is one entire week of Mimi’s time in the Castle just gone poof! And because of this outrage, my pal Mimi got Gremlin’d right outta some plans she had to build us a rockin’ Royal Extreme Adventure golf course! Well, that will never do! I told Mimi that durin’ my time as Queen we are gonna see if we can make her vision happen.

So without further ado, let’s grab our clubs, sign our waivers and try our luck. Circulatin’ around the course for our convenience will be Guest Chef Engine in her mobile Weiner Wagon, purveyin’ her finest cuisine. She has Crispy Canaries on sticks, Flash-Fried Filet of Frog and Buttered Bat Biscuits. And that’s just for starters, wait’ll we get to the clubhouse! Saucy Mouse Ribs with a side of Crispy Crouton and Catnip Casserole, anyone?

So, did I hear someone poo-pooh-in’ that golf is a boring game for old dudes? Not around HERE it ain’t! We are talkin’ Extreme Adventure after all! This means that OUR water hazard is not just a pretty pond, a big guy we affectionately call “Ol’ Toothy” has taken up residence and ya never know when he or his pals will show up to try & carry your clubs! I’d advise ya to tip’ em well! And remember, those large patches of sand are part of the golf course, NOT the emergency facilities.

There are some pictures down in my gallery, enjoy! Oh … and watch out for the last hole, it’s a doozie! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

I wanna thank everyone who’s put in their 2 cents worth about affordable microchippin’, I think we got some good info-sharin’ done and identified some options for families who might have a lotta kitties and not a lotta money. Our CC kitties absolutely rock!

Mom hadda put my Royal blogs on hold for a while, and now we come back & see there’s a Welcome Home pawty for our friend Dayzee who has been missin’ for a couple of days! It’s Crab-Stuffed Flounder Day and I am headin’ straight over with a big batch for Dayzee and another batch for J.C., who has finally been sprung from the Vetspital! First, though, I wanna give ya a heads-up on an event comin’ up in a few days:

Remember back on Superbowl Sunday we started collectin’ beer cans for a special secret project? Well, K. Bennie, my Royal Steward of the Beer Cans, has been workin’ hard receivin’ donations as they come in and sortin’ ‘em by colour, and it’s time to let ya in on the project: Next weekend will round out my time as your Queen with my fourth annual Beer Can Regatta.

More details will come later, but for those who ain’t been part of this extravaganza before, it’s inspired by an actual event that’s been goin’ on every year since 1974 in Darwin Australia where “Participants create boats using empty beer cans, soft drink cans, bottles and milk cartons. The vessels are not tested for seaworthiness prior to water events, and those that fall apart are part of the day's entertainment”

So we are throwin’ open the doors of the Beer Can Shed so you can stock up and start plannin’ your entries. Or doin’ any needed repair work or revisions on the ones from other years. Prince O.J. & I will once again be sailin’ that fine vessel “The Eyesore” and we have a very rockin’ body of water lined up to sail our boats in, with a very special Guest Chef and that’s all I’m gonna tell ya till the end of next week.

Oh, one more word to the wise: If K. Bennie offers ya a brewski while you’re in the shed choosin’ your cans, ya might wanna think twice. I hear tell he has been dumpin’ out those cans that ain’t quite empty yet & mixin’ it into one big Frankenbrew. I’m not sure *I* am even brave enough for that! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

From across the country the responses to my question yesterday about affordable microchippin’ have been rollin’ in. Here’s some of what we’re hearin’:

Q. A. Sakura in Illinois says “I was chipped, as are my sisters. Like at your shelter, Mom was told to just keep her address and phone current with ours. No cost at all, we guess it was included in the adopty fee.”
~~~~~
Q. Lily in Indiana reports: “We got microchipped from the shelter and there are no yearly fees; but with Rika our pooch, who wasn't a rescue, she is registered with Home Again and it costs mom about $18 a year to keep her registered with them.”
~~~~~
K. Whiskers in California expands on this: “All of us kitties are registered with HomeAgain.com and it does costs $17.99 (each) for the annual membership. We think it might cost because they have other perks; like help with lost pet alerts and posters, and found pet travel assistance.”
~~~~~
But maybe the annual membership and perks are options? Q. Mimi in Virginia says “Our chip company is Home Again. Our vet says we pay once for implant and registration.”
~~~~~
Hedley in California tells us “The Animals and I got our chips through our vet clinic, and the outside clowder got all theirs through the city shelter. Mom remembers paying initially for the chips and entering the data into a computer database, but she doesn't get charged to maintain it.”
~~~~~
Q.A. Misty in Pennsylvania shares: “My sisters are all micro-chipped. Mom registered them at Avid. It was free. Mom just needs to update the info if she moves or when my sisters cross The Bridge. They sent plastic collar tags with the info on it too. Mom later got the girls silver tags from Avid with the info and she did have to pay for those.”
~~~~~
Q. A. Duchess in Tennessee tells us: “Three of us are chipped with FoundAnimals.org. They are a non-profit registry that was founded in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina. There is no registration fee and no annual fee, either. It's a great place and they register several brands of microchips. You can check out their site and see if it might be of value to you or any CC members. We were chipped at our local Tractor Supply and it only cost $15.”
**********
After hearin’ from A. Q. Duchess I just hadda check out FoundAnimals.org, it’s a very cute site and packed with info! Along with the microchip registry, the site also helps you find a chip clinic in your area, and has sections devoted to S/N, Adoption & Foster too. They’ve been around for 10 years, check it out!

So it looks like there are some different options out there. Hope some of this is helpful! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

My sweet darling Shai,
Queen MJ dropped me off so I can stay with your earth sibs while your Mom gets that fluid drained today. I know you and all your Angel sibs will take very good care of her but I just could NOT wait around the cabin! I'll help Sandra & Shayna make a big pot of chicken soup and we'll all clean up the house really nice to surprise your Mom when she gets back. ~~ love & kisses, Evie

I have run into a bit of a dilemma. I had some time this week set aside for a special project that my Royal Greenskeeper Q. Mimi was gonna work on, but her brother J.C. and his plumbin’ issues have kinda taken top priority right now. I do hear that J.C. was doin’ well yesterday and paws crossed, he might be comin’ home today. Let’s send him all the good vibes we can and I’m gonna run him over more Angel dust too.

Meanwhile … yesterday I told another lost & found story with the happy ending involvin’ a microchip, and it reminded me that durin’ my campaign a coupla our bigger families told me that they would like to microchip everyone but they couldn’t afford to because of the yearly fees. What yearly fees, I asked myself? I got my microchip popped into me at the shelter, and they just told Mom that if she ever moved to make sure & let ‘em know. My Earthling sibs are tattooed and those all track back to the vet who did ‘em, and same thing, Mom just has to keep her address current. But we’re in Canada. Could it really be that different down south?

So with some time on my paws I thought I’d look into that and according to one website:

“ … in the United States, unlike many other countries, we do not have a central database for the registration of microchipped pets. Further, most people aren't aware that according to studies published in the Journal of American Veterinary Medical Association (JAVMA) over 40% of pets that are implanted with microchips cannot be found in a pet registry database anywhere. Deep rooted issues related to pet registration greatly undermine the overall potential of microchipping; a major impediment being the fees required to maintain a registration.”

Now I would really doubt that the pawrents of the lost & found kitties in my stories were payin’ annual fees for years on end, so we must be missin’ somethin’ somewhere!

I did find one website that offers free registration, FreePetChipRegistry.com. I don’t know anything at all about ‘em besides what they say in their blurb:

“ .. it's FREE for the life of your pet and can be used by anyone with ANY BRAND of microchip. No registration fee; no maintenance fees; no fee to update your contact information; no fees at all as long as you register your pet with FreePetChipRegistry.com.”

Now bein’ in a whole ‘nother country I am at a disadvantage here, so I am throwin’ it out to the CC community. I know a lot of you are very savvy about things rescue related and I would sure like the pawrents of ALL our CC friends to be able to protect everyone without breakin’ the bank.

I’ll pass on anything helpful you can tell me, watch this space. ~~ ♕ Queen MJ
