Angel Duchess Ginger and sister Lady Maggie

About Me

Active within 3 Days

Hi! My name is Angel Duchess Ginger and sister Lady Maggie

I am Domestic Shorthair from Plymouth, MI

Nicknames: Maggie Girl and Gin Gi

Age: 7 years old

Gender: F

Coat: short haired

Education: Maggie fetches peanuts etc. and brings the object back to whoever tossed it.She also jumps up at least 3 feet into the air to catch objects(prefera- bly peanuts of course).A while ago, when we weren't so interested in playing with peanuts, Maggie found a bag of peanuts on the counter and brought us a peanut.She placed it on the couch next to me so she can start playing!

My favorite tricks and treats are: Yes, besides jumping high, she does yoga with me(Yoga 101).She likes to play like a dog where I roll her around on the floor and rub her belly. She uses a special meow when she wants to play.Also, when I stand by the front door looking out, she tells me (ok meows loudly) she wants to be picked up so she can look too. and Cucumbers and tomato

Where I hang out: Either on mom's lap, next to mom on the couch on mom's legs or on the very top of my castle (tall cat tree)

My favorite grubs: Watermelon, strawberries,ki- wi,cantaloupe,o- r
any green veggie Mom eats. I make sure I don't miss anything yummy that she eats!

My pet peeves: When my sibling Tony, a large cat who looks like a panther, does no-no things and Dad has to remind him not to do that, I start "talking" to Tony or may even run up to him to stop him.

What I love about my owners: She plays and grooms and pets me all the time.She makes sure Ginger and Tony get attention too, but it's then when I get very jealous and will plant myself right between my mom and the "other" cat and perhaps stare until she/he jumps off my mom's lap!!So, there.

My cat hobbies: Besides fetching? playing endlessly with da bird or cuddling with her sister,Ginger, in one cat bed.







MAGGIE-August 2012- under King Bennie's reign, had the honor of serving as the "CONSERVATION OFFICER"

Pet motto: "Bringing about a time of No More Homeless Pets"..OK so I read a lot and write a lot.. My book is coming out soon...Well, ok, ghost writer.





GINGER- she is my littermate sister. She is a very beautiful long haired Calico and we have been best friends since birth for six years on April 15, 2013.
Last December 2012, when she had a regular exam, the new vet, who is a kitty specialist, heard a heart murmur. Mom and Dad took her to the kitty Cardiologist for an echocardiogram and it showed end stage Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. Ginger
has, he said, between 6-12 months. We are loving her so much every day and make sure she takes all her medications and doesn't exert herself too much. We don't submit to the belief of generalization of prognoses. Ginger will live as long as she lives. We also feel that Ginger is teaching us a very big lesson, to live in the moment and to appreciate our blessings now.

OCTOBER 31, 2013-GINGER bestowed the title of Duchess Ginger by the very kind King Pushkin from Ireland.

Dear Ginger joins the angels but remains in our hearts. Mom held Ginger until she passed.

How We Met

Hey! I think my cats own me.No, really they are my animal companions. We met when I rescued two litters outside when the mother was very difficult to catch. So was her daughter.Wow! I was trying to keep up with TNR. It was a matter of manipulating my time, the vet's time and cat's willingness to go into the trap. So, I brought them in when they were about 4 wks old, before the mom moved them.So, I was going to socialize them and then get them adopted. This was a difficult assignment. Bottle feeding the kittens every 2 hrs around the clock took up all my free time and left me very tired.Then all 6 kittens walking thru their food(soft-runny- ) and then into their litter box and then back again!Oh sure, the milk(for cats) got walked into as well. So, to fill up the rest of the time, I cleaned up after them at least 5 times a day. So, even then Maggie stood out as a smart kitten, Ginger(longhair Calico) was beautiful and Tony(my 20 lb panther-black kitty)was constantly looking and hoarding food. So, as they became old enough to be adopted, 3 kitties were given to good homes.Even though my husband said, after our 20 yr old and 21 yr old kitties passed on, we were going travel, no way. I first dropped this little tuxedo in his lap(Mission accomplished-Ma- ggie was going to be part of our family).When 2 kittens where left and a friend was interested in adopting, I just couldn't! So, long story short we're back to a 3 kitten family.

Hi Maggie!
Momma did lots of research before taking me back to the vet. She learned how to check my sugar. Momma is a nurse and told the vet she would never give me insulin without checking my sugar.

She also read how I would go on canned food. Our vet said no, too much moisture and carbs? Well, Momma had found a good dry food Wellness Core grain and gluten free with almost the same carbs as Purina DM (she read on 2 sites for diabetic cats that Purina DM is not a really good food). He was fine with that.

Also he wanted to start insulin at the same time as my diet change, Momma said no way, and also I have a gum infection which can make my sugar go up a bit. So he said OK whatever you want. He has been our vet for years and is very good, so Momma was surprised by this.

So I go back for my sugar curve (to decide how much insulin I need)in 3 weeks. Momma got our new food today, it will take a week before we are on 100% of the new food and my infection should be gone by then. She is going to check my sugar during this time to see how it reacts to the diet change. I'm not sure if I'm going to like this, but I take my antibiotic very well....as long as I get some catnip during my sugar checks I should be fine.


Thanks for the info and well wishes!!

Hi Irene,
Thank you for your very kind note. I loved visiting Karen. She is a very special person. If it weren't for CC, I would never have met her. Timmy and Sparkles became friends. Then we found out we lived near each other. Karen visited me at our cottage on Cayuga Lake and we became friends from there.

Irene, if you do want to fly here to visit Karen I would be happy to pick you up at the airport so you wouldn't have to rent a car. We could go visit Karen together. Just let me know.

Thanks again for your kind words. I'm going to call Karen tomorrow and hopefully set up another visit with her soon.

The temperature was High 52 & Low was 48 this morning, now it's 52 with humidity 80% & wind is 0 MPH. Friday's suppose to be Sunny & High 52.

♥ Ok, here's the Deal or No Deal!!!! Mom and dad heard on our Local News the other night about outside kitties getting sick and dying due to the Feline Distemper about five or so miles from us so mom made appointments for our outside kitties ASAP!!!!

♥ UPDATE: 1/29
Mom was able to get my littermate SISSEE #11531 in to see Dr. Lisa this morning to get her Distemper vaccine. She was NOT a happy girl going there, being there and coming home as she meowed all the time --- LOUDLY!!!! Tehehehe!!!!

♥ TC also went in this morning to see Dr. Lisa for his spinal adjustment. Mom also had them give him a Distemper vaccine as well afterwards. Dr. Lisa says TC is such a GOOD boy as he NEVER meows in complaints and just enjoys his treatments as he lays on the warm SnuggleSafe. TC is finally feeling a bit better as his pain has lessened some between taking the Curcumin powder, the Traumeel (1 pill 2X day), the Dasuquin (1 capsule 2X day) and the Chiropractic. He also loves his electric sleeping pad. He goes back next Thursday for another adjustment.

♥ Mom will be capturing MYSTEANAH-GRE' late this afternoon as mom also made an appointment for her to get her Distemper vaccine since no one has claimed her. She's considered to be a part of our family.

♥ On Saturday (1/31) mom has to TRY to capture NEUBEE #123633 first, then she will get PATCH GIRL #12767 and SUEZEE #11528 as she will be taking ALL three in the same time to get their Distemper vaccines. NeuBee will have to be transferred into a squeeze-crate at the vets since she WILL NOT let any human touch her other than mom. A few years back NeuBee had bitten mom's hand sinking all four canines into it!!!! Dr. Nancy gets to do these 3 girls!!!!

♥ We will try to visit as many as possible today, but doubt if we can get to all.

Hi Maggie and Mom Irene,
Thank you so much for your visit and for all your prayers for me. I really do appreciate them. I'm doing better today and I know it's all because of the prayers from you and others. Mom left an update on CMR for me.

I also want to thank you for the updates on Timmy's Mom, Karen. She is such a sweet lady and we have been praying for her, too! It's nice that she is having good days and that she is able to eat and drink, some. We pray that she will remain relatively pain free. And we're all happy that Timmy, Tucker and Bella are being well cared for and will remain in the family. I know that gives Mom Karen a peaceful feeling.

Thanks, again for your visit, dear furiend. I'm leaving you a vote and wishes for a blessed evening and sweet dreams. Take care and I love ya!

Lots of kitty kisses, hugs and purrs,
Duchess

Note from Dale
Hi Irene,

Yes, I did get to see Karen on Sunday. I was just getting ready to write a short note on the Mews Room about her. She was doing really well on the day I saw her. She was sitting up in her hospital bed that is in the living room. She had a "Cat Fancy" magazine beside her. Her hair looked nice, she had on make-up, jewelry and her nails were done. She looks great. I stayed for over an hour. She really does appreciate your daily calls. I told her about the notes on CC and she smiled. She loves the cards people send and like you said, she really appreciates the prayers. Good news about her kitties too! All three of them came out to visit with me and let me brush them. Usually Timmy is the only one who greets me. Bella and Tucker typically go into hiding. So, they are getting used to people which is good. I hope to go see her again soon. I will leave a similar note as this one on the Mews Room.

Hi Maggie
Thanks for keeping us updated on Karen and being such a good friend to her.

We have had a busy week and Mom is on her lunch break now. She wanted to tell you that I visited Dr Candy on Monday, to establish my record and get a microchip. I did not need shots or blood work because I had those already from the rescue group vet. Well... Dr Candy not only thinks I am pretty handsome, but that I am a pure bred maine coon and that I will get bigger because my paws are huge. I weigh 12 lbs 12 oz now. Mom was a little concerned because my back feet turn out, and this is called cow hocks. Dr Candy said that it could be a genetic defect or I could have been left in a small cage for long periods of time when I was young. I was a very good boy and we love Dr Candy, she gave me a treat and she did not charge Mom for the office visit since I am a rescue adoption and mom is a return client.
Hugs,
Luigi

Mouse hunting once again
It must be too cold for the poor little rodents to be outside too because we've caught 3 in the last 2 days! Purrhaps I should correct that & say that Fluffinella, Monkey & Trixie have caught them & I had nothing to do with it...MOL! The kittens try to 'help' but so far they've managed to let them get away each time so that one of the original catchers has to grab them again. Mom always says 'thank you girls' before she scoops it up & tosses it outside while they look confused about where it went. Once it's out the door Joseph makes quick work of the tasty morsel so mom won't have to look at it...MOL!
It's been a strange week because she also found a dead possum on our porch Sunday morning. We're not sure what could have happened to it but there it was lying beside the front door. You should have heard mom squeak about that until dad got rid of it...MOL! She said there's no way she was scooping that big hairy, long-toothed rodent up & it was scaring the outside crew too. ICKY!! Our visiting kitty (Bartholomew) is still coming over a couple of times each week but he's not staying quite as long since mom scolded him for trapping JJ under the grill cover. Guess he doesn't like the 'be nice' rule we have to live by...MOL!

Well got to run so I can plan Trixie's BD pawty on Thursday. Hmmm....too bad mom tossed those rodents out or she could have had a pawsome mouse flavored cake. Oh well...catnip or tuna flavored will also make her purr...MOL!

Hi Maggie and Angel Ginger
Seb's momma and all of us are thankful that your momma has been such a good friend to Timmy, Tucker, and Bella's momma, Karen. She didn't know what kind of cancer Timmy's momma had until your momma told her and agrees with your momma about doctors.

Seb's momma has been taking care of our neighbor kitty, Winston, while his pawrents are gone. They're suppose to come home this weekend. Winston loves to have parties while his pawrents are out-of-town for the neighborhood kitties and we've had a pawtastic time at his parties. Winston isn't on the CC.

Are you going to Mike and Dolly's Super Bowl party this weekend? We'll be there but wish the Lions were playing in it. Before hand we'll be watching the Kitten Bowl on the Hallmark Channel. Saw it last year and those kittens sure were cute! MOL.

Seb's momma wishes we were getting more snow. She says after the "horrid" summer we had with all the bad storms we deserve some fun snow storms. She is more a Winter - Fall person than summer and never, ever liked thunder storms.

Have a purrtastic Tuesday sweeties.

TODAY'S CAT FACT
GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT OF KITTENS

A healthy kitten will have a steady weight gain daily. They usually opens their eyes 7-10 days after birth and soon after their ears open and their first teeth begin to appear.

About 3 weeks of age, kittens begin to walk and explore the environment. By about 5 weeks of age, kittens have most of their temporary teeth and begin to eat solid foods. By 6 weeks old, kittens have fully developed their brain and nervous system.

Kittens develop important physical skills by playing with one another and they learn to get along this way. By watching and imitating their mother, kittens improve many instinctive skills, especially hunting. Most cats reach their adult body size by about 1 year old.

Hi Maggie!!
I am going to meet my vet Dr Candy this afternoon. Mom just wants me to get established, and she has a vet report from the rescue group. My back feet turn outward a little and mom wants to ask Dr Candy about that. She has googled it and learned that it is called "cow hocks" and can cause arthritis in older cats. Right now I have no problems. Mom is thinking now that maybe I was "dumped" because of this. Mom is working at home today too because we are having some work done. Mom hopes that it goes smooth, we had to have some repairs done last week that was the neighbor's responsibility and it did not go well. Hugs,

Cats communicate to each other by means of odor. Cats have scent glands that are on their forehead, around their mouth, and near the base of their tail. The cat will rub these glands against people and objects. This marks them with their scent. Only cats and a few other animals can smell the odor.

Hi Maggie!!
We fully understand about time.... Mom usually logs on to CC when she first wakes up and has her morning coffee, or sometimes when she takes a break at work. She used to spend a lot more time on here, but no more...way too much other stuff to do. We're glad to hear that Karen's spirits are up. Hugs,
Luigi

TODAY'S CAT FACT
VARIOUS WAYS CATS COMMUNICATE

Cats communicate in a variety of ways. One way is by sound. The sounds of a cat can have various meanings. A meow can be a friendly greeting or it may express curiosity, hunger, or loneliness.

Purring usually means contentment but cats also purr when they are sick. When cats hiss or growl, it indicates fear and anger.

Cats also communicate through body language. A friendly cat may greet someone with his tail raised vertically but a frightened or angry cat flicks his tail from side to side, arches his back, and puffs up his fur.

janet's going to regret
not following doctors orders not to be outside shoveling, but since nat's got another driveway to do next door she's going to clean out around her car as they were plowed out since the stupid snow blower is frozen up good timing on it's part for sure! 6" ties the record snowfall we got back on thanksgiving last fall for this season and we just might break it this year, but hoping not! sandy,ab,haley,angels

janet's meds are working at times, but beats nothing for sure!

TODAY'S CAT FACT
A CAT'S TAIL

A cat's tail is an extension of his backbone. Cats use their tails to keep their balance. When a cat is falling, he whips out his tail and twists his body to land on his feet.

Cats also use their tail to communicate. For example, a happy cat will walk with her tail held high.

Cats can live without tails. Manx cats are born without tails. Many of them have a short stub but they are mostly known for being entirely tailless.

I want to thank every kitty for your continued support for me for COTM. Your votes are very much appreciated.

Have a good weekend!! Leaving a vote for you.

janet saw her
doctor yesterday for the nasty sinus infection and she put her on 3 otc meds to see if they work or not, and if not has to call back late next week. expecting 3-6" heavy wet slop tomorrow, so janet's already decided she's staying home from work and more than likely will have to help nat shovel since it's on the order of what we got at thanksgiving heavy wet slop and more coming on monday only that will be fluffy 1-3" at that time. sandy,ab, haley,angels

Thanks, Maggie
I am glad I could bring back happy memories for your Mom.

My name brings back happy memories for Aunt M and Mom too. Grampy had tried out for the part of Spanky when he was a kid living in CA (I may have told you this already, but Aunt M's memory is sometimes faulty), so I remind them of him when he was alive too.

Have a super happy day. Purrs and hugs, Spanky (a real little rascal hehe)

Come visit me, K. Spanky-Jack - I am SO ready for spring!.

Do you have questions to ask your humans today?
If you do then today is the purrfect time to do it since it's 'Answer your Cat's Questions Day'! I know I have some that have never been answered...MOL! For example......

1. What is the meaning of that black box with the moving pictures that you stare at for long periods of time without moving? Nothing comes out of it, no mouse to chase or catnip to roll in, what’s the point?

2. Why do you allow dogs in the house? They smell, they’re loud, and they slobber water everywhere.

The black box is interesting but until they give me a straight answer I'm going to assume it's a useless item in the house...MOL! The second question definitely needs answered too since we have one of those drooly monsters inside most of the time. Granted she's in another room & not terrorizing us but it's the concept of having that smelly thing in our house that blows my mind!
I'm sure the dog won't agree with how we think about her but she should know by now that cats rule the world...or at least they should in my opinion...MOL! Just think how much better things would be if we were in charge instead of humans! Yeah we might have a few cat fights but they wouldn't last for years & we sure wouldn't blow ourselves up just to hurt other kitties. There would be no need for money either because we'd pay for everything in kibble or mice...MOL! That's just a couple of reasons cats are smarter than people but I don't have enough space to do everything we do better than them...MOL!

Well got to run so I can get my list of questions ready for mom. Hope she's got lots of paper for me to use because I've got LOTS to ask...MOL!

Purrs,
Patches & NICE Crew

that's okay
we do understand, but at least you were able to stop by and say hi which to us is equally important as being there for others. janet and mommy are sick with the sinus flu as they just came down with it and nat's getting over his bad cold but his nose is still blowing nice and clear. janet's got a killer 5 day sinus headache as she knew something was up when it wouldn't crack, and now has a sore throat and the nose to match like it was last weekend when it was a faucet! got a big noreaster coming in sat-urday a sinker in reverse so here we go again! sandy,ab,haley, angels

MY DEAREST MAGGIE!!
JAKE HERE LOVE! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE HERBAL TEA AND THE SOFT COMFY BLANKET. IT WAS SO WONDERFUL BEING CUDDLED UP WITH YOU WRAPPED IN THE BLANKET YOU BROUGHT AND SIPPING THAT MARVELOUS TEA!! YOU ARE SO SWEET AND WONDERFUL!!

DEAR FURRIENDS, THIS IS MONTY WITH AN UPDATE FROM MOM DEE! SHE HAD HER APPT. WITH THE OPTHAMOLOGIST FROM CLEVELAND CLINIC YESTERDAY. BOTTOM LINE IS THAT SHE HAS A VERY SEVERE CASE OF DRY EYE THAT FIRST NEEDS TO BE TREATED BEFORE THEY CAN DO ANYTHING FURTHER ABOUT HER EYES. HERE EYES ARE SO DRY THAT WHEN THE LIDS DROP, THEY LITERALLY STICK THAT WAY AND MAKES IT HARDER FOR HER TO OPEN THEM. HER EYES HAVE SPASMS IN THE MUSCLES IN THE LIDS. SO ON FRIDAY OF THIS WEEK SHE SEES A DOCTOR THAT SPECIALIZES IN DRY EYES ONLY AT THE CLINIC. ONCE THE DRY EYES ARE TREATED, THE DRY EYE DOCTOR WILL MEET WITH THE DOCTOR SHE SAW YESTERDAY AND THEY WILL DETERMINE WHAT TO DO NEXT. POSSIBLE TREATMENTS INVOLVE SURGERY ON THE LIDS TO HOLD THE LIDS UP BETTER OR POSSIBLY BOTOX INJECTIONS. MOM SAYS IF THEY DO THE SHOTS WHY NOT TAKE CARE OF SOME WRINKLES WHILE THEY ARE AT IT, MOL!!

THIS SEEMS TO BE A NEVER ENDING PROJECT AND SHE IS REALLY GETTING DISCOURAGED. IT IS NOT LIKE SHE IS GOING TO DIE OR ANYTHING BUT THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON SINCE LAST JULY. BUT IT IS "KEEP A STIFFER UPPER LIP" TIME AGAIN.

YOUR PURRAYERS ARE ASKED FOR AGAIN AND THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR PURRAYERS AND KIND WORDS. GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!! MOM WILL BLOG AS SHE CAN. AND PLEASE KNOW SHE HOPEFULLY WILL BE BACK FULL TIME AT CC.

WE ARE PURRAYING FOR ALL THE HURTING AND SICK KITTIES AND HOOMANS AND SHE FEELS SO BLESSED KNOWING YOU ALL.
SHE WILL GIVE YOU AN UPDATE AFTER FRIDAY'S APPT. HEAD BUMPS AND PURRS FROM MOM DEE, MONTY AND THE BROWN FURRAMILY SIX PACK!!!
