Due to a change in website platforms, a necessary step to enhance and update the CAT FANCY magazine website, it will no longer be possible to host Club Cat. Starting Jan. 1, 2014, Club Cat will close and members will no longer be able to accrue points. Members with sufficient reward points have until Jan. 10, 2014, to redeem their points for any of the cat products currently available in the Club Cat Rewards Catalog. On Jan. 15, 2014, Club Cat members with 25 reward points or higher will be automatically entered into a raffle to win special prizes. Raffle prize winners will be notified after Jan. 31, 2014. Points for the final Cat of the Day will be awarded on Jan. 1, 2014. New programs similar to Cat of the Day will be announced with the launch of the new website, so look for further announcements.

REMINDER: Members with sufficient reward points can redeem points again on Jan. 6, 2014 and have until Jan. 10, 2014, to redeem their points for any of the cat products currently available in the Club Cat Rewards Catalog while supplies last. 01/10/2014 12:00.00 AM

Walking one foot in front of the other--Foot facts
“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” -Henry David Thoreau
.......²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²². ......
1. The human foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles.
2. Your feet mirror your general health. Conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, nerve and circulatory disorders can show their initial symptoms in the feet --so foot ailments can be our first sign of more serious medical problems. Biomechanical fault and strain affect the knees, joints and L5.
3. There are 250,000 sweat glands in a pair of feet. Sweat glands in the foot excrete as musch as a half pint of moisture a day.
4. The average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day, which adds up to about 115,000 miles ove a lifetime. That's enough to go around the circumference of the earth four times.

Two poems for my FurFriend SISSY
Catch a Little Rhyme by Eve Merriam
Once upon a time
I caught a little rhyme
...I set it on the floor
...but it ran right out the door
......I chased it on my bicycle
......but it melted to an icicle
..........I scooped it up in my hat
..........but it turned into a cat
I caught it by the tail
but it stretched into a whale
...I followed it in a boat
...but it changed into a goat
......When I fed it tin and paper
......it became a tall skyscraper
..........Then it grew into a kite
..........and flew far out of sight...

Still I Rise by Maya Angelou (variation in CAPS)
...Just like moons and like suns,
......With the certainty of tides,
.........Just like hopes springing high,
............Still I'll rise.
...Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
......I rise
............Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the FELINE.
...I rise
......I rise
.........I rise.

Hi Sissy,

This is Kokomo's Mom. Kokomo was a very special, loyal and one of the most lovable Siamese Cats that I've ever had. He took care of his coat (I only combed him once in a while) and he did a great job of it even when he was sick. I will miss him so as will his Brother, Koda. Please stop by and see Koda cause he loves company too. Before we go we're gonna vote for you. Bye for now.

Federal & state holiday Friday
~11:11:11~(Veteran's-Armistice-Remembrance Day~
On November 11th, we remember the brave fallen. We owe so much to the sacrifices of a very few.

**End of WWI in 1918: A day for Reflection**
In 1918, at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, hostilities between the Western Allies and Germany ceased, effectively ending what was until then the bloodiest conflict in human history.

The phrase “at the 11th hour” is biblical (Matthew 20:6 — “And about the eleventh hour) and it is understood to mean “at the very last possible minute.”

After the war, a park was created at the site called the Clairiere de L’Armistice (the Clearing of the Armistice). A concrete pavilion was built to house the rail car, and a statue of Foch was erected along with a plaque that read: “Here on the eleventh of November 1918 succumbed the criminal pride of the German empire ... vanquished by the free peoples which it tried to enslave.”

°l11|11|11l°(A Palindromic Moment)°l11|11|11l°
**Symmetry makes us feel safe and balanced.
Nov. 11, 2011, the date when three 11s will align for the first time in a century. There's nothing unusual about the time 11:11 or the date 11/11/11 except the unofficial start of the 2012 metaphysical year.

**Mathematics
The number eleven, as the sixth prime number, has a special characteristic in mathematics. It contains some interesting peculiarities where the number eleven multiplied by itself equals a palindrome (remains the same when its digits are reversed):
(2 digits) 11 x 11 = 121
(6 digits) 111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
(9 digits) 111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321

Take chances on opportunities......Gain strength
Embrace challenges.................Hold nothing back
Fulfill dreams.................... ............................Believe

»-(¯`v´¯)-» "I Hope You Dance" »-(¯`v´¯)-»

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin',
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',

Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin' out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

...Time is a wheel in constant motion
always rolling us along,
Tell me who wants to look back
on their youth and wonder
where those years have gone.

Dance....I hope you dance.

NY-size iceberg
+------------- (NASA's Operation IceBridge)------------+
Scientists based in Punta Arena, Chile are in their third field campaign of the largest six-year airborne survey of Earth’s polar ice ever flown. The mission is geared to produce unparalleled 3D views of Arctic and Antarctic ice sheet, ice shelves and sea ice.

Instruments onboard the DC-8, a flying laboratory, include a suite of radars. Its precision topography maps with a laser than scans 360 degrees 20 times per second, while firing 3,000 laser pulses per second. The Digital Mapping System, a nadir-view camera, gathered high-definition close-ups of an enormous and unstable split.

The Western Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier is one of the largest and fastest-moving glaciers in Antarctica. On the flight perpendicular to the crack, the McCORDS radar also measured its depth and the thickness of the ice shelf in that region. The crack, formed between the end of September and early October, is fairly dramatic. When the iceberg breaks free, it will cover about 340 square miles (larger than NY City or the size of Berlin) of surface area. Radar measurements suggested the ice shelf in the region of the rift is about 1,640 feet thick, with only about 160 feet of that floating above water and the rest submerged. With the crack widening every day, the iceberg will form when it breaks away. This is expected to take place at the end of the year or in early 2012.

The ice shelf thins, the grounding line retreats and the speed of the glacier increases. The ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica are melting at an accelerating pace, and may soon become the biggest contributor and source of uncertainty to global sea level rise projections. If current rates of ice loss were to continue, sea level could rise by as much as three feet or more before the end of this century. The last big cyclical carving event occurred in 2001.

Satellites, ICESAT (Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite), ended in February 2010, and ICESAT 2, will launch in 2016, is the benchmark Earth Observing System mission intends to continue the assessment of polar ice changes and their relationship with climate.

1572: Tycho's supernova, explosion of a white dwarf star, is observed in the Milky Way constellation known as Cassiopeia

Jupiter rules the night in November 2011 as it shines and beams, like a lighthouse, in the east moving westward and upward from evening dusk until morning dawn.
Meteors in annual showers originate as grains of dust or ice in space, left behind by comets. After midnight, the part of Earth you’re standing on has turned so that you face head on into the incoming stream of space debris. So you typically see more meteors after midnight – unless the moon happens to rise in the middle of the night. Although the moon may wash out some Leonid meteors, it acts as your guide to the meteor shower radiant and the red planet Mars.
The annual Leonid meteor shower ramps up a few additional streaks of light and gets underway in November 6. With the Moon currently waxing toward Full, the best views will come before dawn tomorrow and Tuesday in the hour or two after the Moon sets. Astronomers expect the shower to peak the night of November 17/18.

Fall back tonight
*"The times they are a-changing." -Bob Dylan ¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨
¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨"Time meanwhile flies, never to return" -Virgil
***"Lost time is never found again" -Benjamin Franklin

¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨Back to Standard Time on 11/5/11¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨¨
We gain an hour of sleep this weekend!! Dayllight savings comes to an end at 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning. With the clocks turned back, it will be less dark in the morning but darkness will fall earlier in the evening. Arizona, Hawaii and Puerto Rico stay on standard time all year round.
The concept of daylight-saving time may have first been proposed by Benjamin Franklin in 1784 to the Parisians. The thought was that Americans would appreciate an extra hour of sunlight and conserve energy (candles and oil back then).
Transitions may disrupt chronobiologic rhythms and influence the duration and quality of sleep as the effect lasts for several days after the shift. People who suffer with sleep disorders seem to find the bi-annual transitions more difficult. The extra hour of sleep means a lost hour of afternoon sun, which increases reliance on electricity and decreases the potential for, vitamin D-giving outdoor activities. Nearly half of the world’s population has lower than optimal levels of vitamin D, often called the sunshine vitamin.
¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨Until March 11, 2012¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨

¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨"Time is valuable, and when it is gone, it is gone. Time is wealth, and unlike money, when it is gone, you cannot replace it." -Napoleon Hill
¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨"Poor people spend time to save money; Rich people spend money to save time.
¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨"An extra yawn one morning in the springtime, an extra snooze one night in the autumn is all that we ask in return for dazzling gifts. We borrow an hour one night in April; we pay it back with golden interest five months later." -Winston Churchill

Pow wow gathering
"What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset." - Chief Crowfoot, Blackfoot warrior and orator

.....................Native American Heritage Month
For millennia before Europeans settled in North America, the indigenous peoples flourished with vibrant cultures and were the original stewards of the land. From generation to generation, they handed down invaluable cultural knowledge and rich traditions.
Against the odds, America's first peoples have endured, and they remain a vital cultural, political, social, and moral presence. The bridge to the 21st century rests upon the foundation that is built today.

"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect." - Chief Seattle

U.S. Supreme Court decides Native Americans can't be Americans on November 3, 1883.
America's journey has been marked by dark moments of injustice for American Indians and Alaska Natives. Tribal communities face stark realities and unacceptable disparities including disproportionately high rates of poverty, unemployment, crime, and disease. While we cannot erase the scourges or broken promises of the past, we move ahead to face new challenges.

The human population reached a billion in 1804. By 1927, that figure doubled. In just over 30 years, it hit 3 billion. Population figures have doubled in the last 50 years. Every 24 hours on our planet some 237,000 people are born and 140,000 die. Nearly half the world’s population is under the age of 25 and entering their childbearing years. The United Nation's figures come with a 1-2% margin of error.

On October 31, the world's 7 billionth person will be born. A world of 7 billion poses many challenges, implications for sustainability, urbanization, access to health services and youth empowerment and countless opportunities to make a positive difference.

The UN's reason for naming a symbolic date as 7 Billion Day is to draw attention to the speed of population growth, with less than 13 years having passed between the six-billion and seven-billion milestones. The UN estimates that baby 8 billion will be born by 2025, 9 billion by 2050, 10 billion by end of century.

Aloha is a popular word with unique meaning.
Aloha is a way of living and treating each other with love and respect.
The literal meaning of aloha is “the presence of breath” or “the breath of life.”
“Alo,” = presence, front and face
“ha,” meaning breath.
It can mean hello or goodbye.
It also means love and affection.
The word aloha is used in a combination with other words:
aloha kakahiaka = good morning
aloha auinala used = good afternoon; and
aloha ahiahi = good evening in Hawaiian.
The Spirit of Aloha creates positive feelings and thoughts. It exists in space, multiplies and is spread over to others.
Hawaii is called the Aloha State.
