♥ This Honor was so unXpected, but very sweet since mom had to take me to see Dr. Lisa late Thursday (12-11) afternoon! I was not a HAPPY boy and boy did I let her know! MOL! I meowed all the way there and back home. Mom thought I might have had a UTI, but my Urinalysis came back clear. Dr. Lisa was looking and cleaning me and I tried to bite her. It's suspected I have an infection in my Urethra (my peepee) so I got a Convenia injection and sent home with Panalog ointment for mom to TRY to put on my peepee area twice a day.
By the way, I gained TWO pounds since July which mom's not happy cuz now I am at 24.6 pounds! I almost forgot to tell you I left mom a smelly gift in the carrier on our way home! MOL!

♥ Mom told dad I am to be cut back on my food including NO MORE human food that he's always giving me! BUZZ OFF MOM! I'm feeling much better & yes, mom's still applying that ointment on me, but Thursday is the last day for it!

♥ Thank you for such an Honor with my 4th Cat of the Day Badge on 12/12/2014! Mom doesn't know how I got it since I only had a few votes that day! Thank you also for the sweet gifts and yummies (which mom took them all away from me), the cool balloons and toys along with all your friendships and prayers.

♥ Not only did I win COTD that day, but it was also my sibling NeuBee's #123633 6 year Adoptiversary then on 12/13 our doggie Carly #11000 won her 5th DOTD which was also another surprise. Mom finally got the Thank Yous done for NeuBee then Carly's so now it's just me left to do!

My dear BFF K. Whiskers & Family,
That's great about the rainfall! Plus sunshine this coming weekend? How good can it get? I know you're not over your drought yet, but the weather is like everything else -- baby steps!

I'm glad Callie checked out just fine, but she gained a whole pound? And then she wouldn't do the push ups for you? That's a fine how do you do. Does your Mom allow you all to play with a laser light toy? That is the quickest a cat will move around and her pound will be gone in no time.

I'm so sorry to hear your Mom's Uncle passed away. We all send our deepest condolences. Is your Mom holding up alright?

Thank you for my vote, my precious BFF. And I'll be sure to pass warm hugs to my pawrents for you and even one for Mason. I like the quote you sent about a cat's love. So beautiful!

Wishing you and your family a very blessed evening.

Purrs & kitty kisses,
Angel Malachi

Hi Whiskers
Could you please ask your Chef sister Callie if she and A Maggie and staff could whip up a NYE feast for the bIg party I have planned at the Castle....also maybe a breakfast buffet spread for the next morning...I have a feeling a lot of kitties will be partying hardy and will spend the night at the castle...then of course I pack up and say goodbye to 2014 and the Caslt and hand it over to Quuen Kuce....

Thanks can have Chef Callie get in touch with me if she likes.

Dear K. Whiskers & Family,
Good to hear from you. I'm answering your catmail from yesterday. I like your new profile picture!

Let me know how Callie did at the vet check up, OK? And yes, our prayers include Q. Duchess and Q. Merrybelle to feel better and heal up; along with all the other furs who are not feeling well, or are in delicate health.

You're welcome and concats again! Yes, as I remember it was right before Valentine's Day in 2012 that word got out that Ana thought I was good looking and she was interested. I stepped right in and asked her to be my Valentine and we've been together ever since. We had our first anniversary on 6/22/14. We are both very lucky Toms! I can't imagine being without her. That's why I've come back down to Earth for as long as I stay. I still go up and check in at my cloud (Cloud #23) to be sure everything is fine and to visit with my other Angel furiends.

I liked "The Christmas Gift of Knowing You" by Joanna Fuchs. I like her work. And thank you for my vote and all the purrs, hugs and prayers that come along with it. I'll pass on hugs to my pawrents and you do the same for me. You all are always in our prayers.

I enclosed a vote for you and wishes for you and your family to have a very blessed day.

Purrs & kitty kisses,
Angel Malachi

Wow, Whiskers! Really?
A whole year ago that your Dad broke his ankle? And he thought it would NEVER heal! See, told you so! I love being right, mol.

Here's a good under-the-tree one for you: Back at the NW 5 meetup Angel Duchess Sassy's Mom gave Mom a kitty figurine with a Santa hat on. It's maybe the size that Mojo was at 4 months or so, so last night Mom got the bright idea to put it under the tree to help decorate for Christmas. Well, you should have seen the Moj ... she crept up slowly on that thing, all on edge and sniffing the whole way. Goofy kid was worried it was real! Now she's fine with it and is back to napping under the tree. -- Mike

Whiskers recalled thinking, when their home was
being built that the four large ovens in the kitchen was a bit excessive, but today with all of them filled with delicious dishes for the party this evening, he realized, not for the first time, that Talley and her sisters had designed the house to be the perfect home.
Earlier, Pete had asked Talley and Whiskers to fly a second Bell 421, to the wolf cave. The second chopper would hover while half of the wolves boarded the first, then the second chopper would land and take the rest of the pack aboard. They would fly back to Whiskers and Talley’s home in formation. Talley had mounted go cams on both helicopters so that they would have video of the party from the very beginning. After breakfast Talley had called the airfield to alert the ground crews to prepare both helicopters.
Pete and Whiskers had set the theater up and had the disk loaded into the players. They had played some of it and adjusted the sound to perfection. When they were finished, they looked around in satisfaction. The theater was beautifully decorated and the projection and sound systems were perfectly adjusted. Pearl had cleaned the theater so thoroughly that not a speck pf dust could be found anywhere. Pete checked the popcorn machine and Whiskers checked the soda dispensers. Everything was perfect.
Meanwhile, in the kitchen, Callie and Angel Maggie supervised Orangie, Whitey and the kids, the feast was coming together. Talley had finished preparing her pies and told Callie that they needed to go in the oven at 4:00 PM and come out at 5:00, then they needed to cool. They would be perfect by the time dinner was finished and their guests were ready for dessert.
The beef Tenderloins were ready to go in a very hot oven, set to 600 degrees, and then after only fifteen minutes the heat would be turned off and the roasts would stay in for two hours as the temperature dropped. The tenderloins would have a beautiful sear and be moist and succulent. The trays of chicken breasts and pork chops were ready as well.
Appetizers were the final part of the feast. Orangie and Whitey were filling deviled eggs and topping them with red caviar they had used six dozen eggs yielding 144 deviled eggs. These trays went in the walk-in cooler. The stuffed sole appetizer went into the warming ovens. At the last minute Angel Maggie had added Rumaki to the menu. She finished wrapping the chicken livers in bacon and popped the trays into the oven.
The kids had moved on to setting the tables, Angels Lucy and Sylvie had used angel magic to subtly alter the spatial geometry of the dining room. It would now accommodate the whole family and all of the wolves without being crowded. Angel Lucy had also provided the

special Christmas themed china, a delicate bone china with a gold rim and a holly border. Festive candles set in holly holders ran the length of the table.
The fireplace burned with a cheery glow, and the kids began loading the dishwashers with the bowls and utensils that had been used in preparing the meal.
Pete answered his phone, listened for a moment and said, “They’ll be there as soon as they can drive down to the field.” He said to Talley and Whiskers, “It’s time to go get our guests.”
Talley and Whiskers went out to the garage. Whiskers opened the door for Talley and helped her into the Audi.
At the field they parked in the hangar and walked out to the helipad. The two Bell helicopters sat on the apron. Bobby and Inky were pre-flighting one of them, and the other sat waiting for Talley and Whiskers. The preflight checks were soon done and the two helicopters were ready for takeoff. As Talley climbed in and buckled up she had to smile. The ground crew had decorated the passenger cabin, with garlands and Christmas lights.
Storm called the tower and requested clearance for a formation takeoff. It was granted. Storm acknowledged the clearance, and looked over to second helicopter. He gave a dewclaw up to Talley; they lifted off together, heading for the Wolf Cave.
As they approached the LZ Storm radioed, “Ladies first, Talley go ahead and land, you can pick up the first passengers. Talley acknowledged his transmission and began to descend to the LZ. The clearing was ringed by wolves all dressed in warm winter clothes. They waved happily as the helicopter settled to earth. Phillip, Flanked by angels Lucy and Sylvie, walked to the helicopter. Whiskers opened the cabin door and climbed down. He greeted Phillip with a hug and a meowed Merry Christmas. Phillip hugged him back and asked, “Are we ready?
Whiskers said, “We are, let’s get everyone aboard. Angels Lucy and Sylvie motioned the waiting wolves forward and helped lift excited pups into the cabin. When the Cabin was almost full, Whiskers asked Phillip if he wanted to ride in the first helicopter.
Phillip smiled, and said, “Angels Lucy and Sylvie have offered to show me what it is like to travel at angel speed. I’ll be coming with them.”
Whiskers nodded and directed Carlos to a seat in the cabin. The door was secured, and Talley made sure everyone was buckled up before lifting off.

It had been clear in the earlier part of the day, but the sky had gone gray, and as Talley assumed a circling pattern around the cave, the first flakes began to fall.
Storm landed and the rest of the wolves were boarded. The pups were singing Christmas Carols and laughing happily.
They landed on the lawn back at the house and the whole family was there to greet them. The boathouse guest had come to join in the welcome.
The snow was falling more heavily and Tuna suggested that they get the pups inside before they became chilled. It was a happy group of wolves who were led into the house!
Phillip having been transported to the party by Angels Lucy and Sylvie, was waiting inside. Angel Maggie was showing him the food that had been prepared, as his pack began to come in laughing and happy he turned to watch as the family welcomed them with hugs and smiles. Flower and his sisters were beside themselves with excitement. The led the pups into the theater to show them the Christmas tree and all of the presents beneath it. The pups, who had never seen a theater before were excited and wanted to watch the ballet right then. Flower told them that dinner would be first and he promised them that they would love it. “Our Aunts are the best chefs ever.”
One of the pups quickly said, “Our aunt Victoria is a fine cook too. She makes great steaks for us!”
Flower smiled and said, “I’d like to taste some of her steaks sometime. I’ll bet she’s a great cook too.”
Orangie had placed appetizers on the buffet and when the kids came back flower showed them how to take a small plate and select the small delicious tidbits. The little wolves loved the deviled eggs and the bacon wrapped chicken livers. Their moms cautioned them not to fill up before dinner and the little wolf, Adam, who had so taken to Flower, said, “But momma, isn’t this dinner?”
She laughed, and told him that it was part of dinner but that there was more wonderful food to come.
Pete opened Champagne and Grape juice and passed glasses around for a toast to their guests and friends. Thomas had accepted a glass of champagne and he raised it. “I would like to propose a toast to all of our new friends, May you all have a happy and Blessed Christmas and may you all enjoy good health and happiness all through the year.”

They drank the toast and Callie nodded to Flower he and Ralph ran to ring their dinner chime. Ralph said, “Dinner is served!”
The wolves followed Whiskers and Talley to the buffet and Whiskers told them to take what they liked and that second helpings were definitely okay!
Carlos led the way filling his plate with Tenderloin Chicken and Pork Chops. He added small servings of green beans and mashed potatoes.
When they were all seated, Whiskers asked Phillip to say grace.
Phillip bowed his head reached to either side to hold paws and prayed, “Heavenly Father, thank you for this bounty, and thank you for the friends who have provided. May you Bless them for all of their days.”

The wolves ate with enthusiasm, and most of them did have second helpings. When dessert was served, they were all delighted with Talley’s apple pies and the homemade vanilla bean ice cream that Raven and Ms. Murphy had made.
At last they pushed back from the table and Talley announced that they would gather in the Theater, to attend the Nutcracker ballet.
Pete stepped to the front of the room and when everyone was seated, he spoke, “We are so honored to have all of you with us this evening. We will watch the ballet, and then we have some gifts for the pups. You can take them back to your home and open them on Christmas Eve. Now, The Nutcracker Ballet!”
The lights dimmed, the curtains drew back, and music filled the room.
The kids were enchanted! It was wonderful watching them.
When the last strains of music faded the room broke into applause.
As the wolves filed out of the theater, there were lots of yawns from the tired pups. Angel Lucy suggested, “I think the pups are ready for bed, Sylvie and I will be glad to transport them back to the cave and put them to bed. One of us will be glad to come back and get the rest of you, when you’re ready to come home. The other of us will stay with the pups.

Phillip nodded that would be wonderful. Flower led the adult wolves to the living room and Maggie and Callie served tea and coffee. Maggie packed a box of cinnamon rolls for the wolves and sent them along.
The pups exclaimed happily when they saw the magic carpet on the deck. Though the snow was falling heavily, none touched the carpet and it was warm and cozy as soon as they stepped on to it. They all carried their presents aboard and when they were settled. Lucy made a gesture with her paw and instantly they were in the warm cave! Lucy and Sylvie tucked the little wolves into their warm beds and brushed them with soft strokes of their beautiful wings. They were all soon asleep.
Back at home the conversation was happy and bright and Talley suggested sing carols. Whiskers played his harmonica and everyone sang the beautiful songs. When they finished O Come All Ye Faithful, Phillip said, “That was wonderful, but I fear it’s time for this for this old wolf to get some sleep.”
With that Sylvie appeared and the guests said good night. It had been a wonderful evening.
After they wolves were gone, Whiskers and Talley & Bobby, Storm and Inky returned the helicopters to the hangar.
As they drove back up to the house, Talley said, “I vote for cleaning up in the morning.”
Whiskers replied, “I second that!”
When they arrived, they were amazed to see a gleaming clean kitchen, the dining room restored to its normal configuration and a blazing fire in the fireplace. Angel Lucy had used some magic to clean up from the party.
They all shared a final hot chocolate and retired for the night very happy.
As Talley and Whiskers slid beneath the covers they kissed and fell asleep.

Mommy says that SHE is the smart one, not
ME. She's the one that started using USPS several years ago, way before I was born. Anyway, your Mom will find that it's very easy to use the website and do click-n-ship online. There are a few little eccentricities that you have to figure out, but once you get the hang of it it becomes easy. What's even easier is printing out the labels and having the packages picked up right from your home!

What a neat profile picture, Whiskers!
We had a bit of sunshine yesterday and today too, but not enough. Yesterday (and the day before, and the day before that..) it rained, but today it's back to cold winter weather and snow flurries. Yuck!

It's great that your Dad's ankle has healed well. That's the same thing they told Mom about her arm almost 4 years ago, but guess what? It still hurts! I guess it probably always will. We told Mom that old people should not break bones. They just don't ever heal right!

Mom is doing OK, thank you. She never seems to get enough sleep but otherwise she's plodding along. This afternoon both Mai Lin and Morgan Beagle go see the vet. Mai Lin is recovering from conjunctivitis and Morgan has something going on with her rear end. Mom is worried about Morgan, fearing that her cancer has returned. We hope that Callie's checkup goes well today. Hugs, KC and the Zoo Crew

☃ Only 8 days left until Christmas ☃
Hi K Whiskers,

I hope Fluffinella doesn't get too upset with me but I'm taking over the family blogging for the rest of the month. She'll be doing the special celebration visits, but I wanted to make sure to sprinkle all of our beloved CC furiends with my special golden angel dust to wrap up the year. Hmmm...I hear a little hiss from Fluffers but she loves me so she'll get over it...MOL!

FYI-Anyone that's requesting mom Jane's home address is getting it by email instead of here on CC to maintain more privacy for her. I know that many of you already have it but if you don't just leave me a blog on my page & mom will make sure she has your email so she can send it.

Now on to what we've been up to. The angels have been busy decorating for Christmas & making frequent trips to earth to spread joy, happiness & good-will to as many kitties & humans as possible. Our newest CC angels are settling in nicely & are doing well in their flying lessons & dust collecting runs. Soon they'll all be 'let loose' to fly on their own so if you haven't felt them yet, you soon will!

I've been watching mom making Christmas cookies, getting presents ready to wrap & addressing Christmas cards. We also took a little time off on Monday night to attend young sis' choir concert. It was a packed house with standing room only if you arrived late. Sis & the concert choir performed, as well as another high school choir (they do road trips to perform), the junior high, & also 4th graders. Their finale was a beautiful rendition of Silent Night by all of the kids as they lined the stage & aisles of the auditorium. It was so touching that all of the angels there that night were crying tears of joy as they flew from child to child to sprinkle them with angel dust. We saw a few pawents & grandpawents getting teary eyed too so it was the purrfect way to end an already pawsome night.
Well got to fly for now so mom can wrap some presents while the kids are at school. I'll meow at you again on Friday.

Purrs of love,

Hello K Whiskers
Thank you for your prayers & sweet Happy Adoptiversary wishes. I have good mews to share today! Dr. William called Mommy this morning to report that my levels have decreased even more after the IV fluids for 2 days. My BUN = 38 and Creat = 2.5. He wants me to finish this bag of fluids today, so Nana & Mommy will pick me up this afternoon.

I will visit Dr. William next week for another bloodwork recheck and sub-q fluids. Our goal right now is for me to receive sub-q fluids once a week. We hope & pray that plan works out. We will find out more next week.

Thanks again for your continued prayers. James 5:16 says “The intense prayer of the righteous is very powerful.” Amen to that!

Hi K. Whiskers
What a pawsome profile pic!!! Mom thanks you for your encouraging words, she knows things will work out eventually and it does seem to be getting better each day. Anything that makes mom smile like that must surely be worth it!!
I did sneak up on the counter and have a taste of her food, same thing I do not want to eat anyways, just as long as she is not giving her my special food with cheese in it!!MOL!!!
Oh so happy to hear that dad is doing so well, sorry to hear he will have to keep exercising it, bet he wasn't thrilled with that.
We are keeping Callie in our prayers and hope everything goes well with her visit today!!!

good morning!
it was pouring when janet got up at her regular work day time of 3am like she did yesterday so that means she hopes the last 3 days of her vacation she can sleep in till 5-6, but you/we know her better than that she's always up early and never will sleep in as once we gain time back in the mornings she'll be out walk-ing earlier and earlier, but till then she'll be out once it's starting to get light enough to see where you're going! she is now FINISHED with all the christmas stuff as she did all the baking (burned more cookies) and found time late in the day to get her gifts wrapped and set to go as well as sorting through the bags for stockings as she does that now entirely herself as well. not as much as in past years as she didn't have all the costs of things like a $200 month garage payment or a $100 a month helping mommy to pay for master's nursing home bill which she's helping out with each month even though she doesn't earn that much. she's doing what she can when she can and both mommy and master know it too! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Whiskers
That is such good mews about Q MerryBelle. I pray she keeps improving and can come home soon, if not tomorrow.
We had another cloudy, wet day, for a change. *sarcasm* Now they are saying that there may be a few clouds tomorrow. We might have some snow for Christmas. It depends on how the system tracks by the time it gets here. They're saying that it probably won't be a storm, but some nice accumulating snow. Mom says as long as it's not a lot, she's fine with that.
Mom went in to try to take one of her finals, but she can't. The test won't be available until tomorrow. *facepaw moment*

Hi K. Whiskers,
How are you doing this evening? It has been a very hectic day here. First of all, we have been having a lot of trouble with our internet and Mom has made numerous phone calls to no avail. The soonest we can get service to come out is Thursday. Mom is very disgusted to be paying for a product that she considers sub-optimal. Then she has noticed that the pool water has been dropping so she took out the hose and started to put water back in to the pool. We had warmer weather today and tomorrow too so it is a good time to get the pool water level back up. Mom is hoping that there isn't a leak in the pool. All-in-all, a very tiring day and tomorrow Dad has another Dr. appointment. Mom says she will need a vacation when Dad gets back on his feet. Hehehe.!!! But, not to worry as I have been giving Mom and Dad plenty of purr therapy and I have been getting extra treats. Win- Win for all. I hope that you are having a good evening my friend. Purrs and a hug, Mittens...

Hi Whiskers!
We know all about the unexpected company, especially this time of year. Big Bro Joe dropped in here for a while yesterday, I was brave and went to check him out and Mojo even peeked around the corner from the top of the stairs. Then when he started UP the stairs she ran for cover under the bed. I usually stay out with the family but out of arms reach of the strangers. I slip into Mom & Dad's room sometimes to check on Mojo under the bed and fill her in on what's going on.

Big Sis Becky is coming on Saturday and she wants to take Evie to the pet store for pictures with Santa. Believe it or not, Evie should be just fine with that. Mom's going to go along for the fun. We will post pictures when we get them, prepare to be amazed, mol.

Wow, your presents are actually under the tree? The pawrents here never got into that habit. First there were kids, then there were cats. Mom tried it one year and Dad went through the whole year using a desk calendar that Angel Mallow chomped the corner while ripping the wrapping paper off. No one noticed till Christmas morning because that corner was way at the back with another present on top for her to hide behind.

THEN there was the Christmas Mom got us the Emery Cat! We were all over that package while it was under the tree! We practically unwrapped it ourselves, mol. And of course once it was unwrapped and set up, did we use it? No we did not. Mom finally took it down to one of the Northwest Five meetups and gave it to Angel Gracie's Mom. -- Mike

Good afternoon kitties. Today's topic is: BLADDER CONTROL PROBLEMS:!!

Few things are less savory than discovering an unpleasant odor emanating from your potted plants or a puddle in your living room. Oh no, she has done it again. It is normal for puppies and kittens to make mistakes. But when your grown up pet has suddenly stopped making it to litter box or back yard on time, there could be something physically wrong.

HOLD THE NIGHTCAP: To help keep floors dry while you sleep, try putting out only a small amount of water at night. Don't stop the water entirely. For some pets going without water can be dangerous.

PROVIDE EXTRA BATHROOMS: When Fluffy has poor control, the last thing she needs is a litter box that's far away. To make sure she can get relief when she needs it, have an extra litter box on every floor.

KEEP IT TIDY: Even desperate cats can be finicky, and if the litter isn't kept clean, they refuse to use it. Clean out your cats boxes with each bowel movement, or at least once a day.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: While even the best-behaved pet can have accidents, a sudden change for the worse could mean trouble. Pets that urinate frequently or in all the wrong places could have a bladder infection, diabetes, hormone imbalance or even kidney failure.

Call your vet if any changes in your pets usual habits persist for more then 2 days or if the urine is discolored or if it's difficult for her to go.

Mom hasn't gone to the Post Office to mail
Christmas packages for years! She's used the USPS website and Click-'N-Ship, and she wouldn't go back to the old way for love nor money. You do have to pay for Priority Mail postage when you ship from home, but that's a small price to pay compared to the hassle of standing in line for hours. Heck, they will even deliver mailing supplies to your house for free! Yup, your Mom needs to learn to use the website for next year! Hugs, Pique and the Zoo Crew

We understand about unexpected company
and busy bloggers, Whiskers. It happens to all of us at some point. You were wise to keep an eye on the presents because some people have sticky fingers! MOL!! (So do some kitties, like Pique. He has very sticky paws!)

It's raining there and it's raining here. We've had milder than normal weather for the past few days but it hasn't been sunny by any means. Dreary, cloudy, rainy weather! And starting tonight it goes back to winter here, with snow showers and cold instead of rain. We'd prefer the rain, thank you! We know you are probably tired of the rain by now too, but at least it's filling up your creek again. That's a plus! You kits stay indoors and dry, and try to look for the silver lining in the clouds.

Mom appreciates your thinking of her. She's eagerly waiting to see if they come up with a treatment plan that will make her life easier. She'd be so very happy if they do! Hugs, KC and the Zoo Crew

Hello K Whiskers
Thank you for your prayers for me & Mommy. Dr. William called Mommy at 8:15 this morning. He said this morning my BUN = 40 (down from 43) and Creatinine = 3.0 (down from 4.1) He was pleased that the IV fluids are helping my levels come down, especially the Creatinine. He told Mommy that I am wide awake and alert and had covered my food bowl. I never eat when at the vet's office.

Doc will do more bloodwork in 24 hours and call Mommy tomorrow morn. Mommy really believes (hopes) that I will come home tomorrow. Today is my Adopty Day and she hates that I am spending this special day at the vet. But she knows that I am where I need to be & I am getting the proper care.

We are very blessed to have such a wonderful vet and so many caring CC furiends. Please continue to keep us in your prayers. Your prayers are working.

Hi Whyskers!!
We're supposed to get rain today too!! They said maybe last night but we did not see any. I am waiting at the window watching for rain! Mom spends a lot of time at Balboa Park, she usually walks there, and there is always something going on. It really is the most beautiful city park that Mom has ever seen. Mom is not sure if she is going to stay here when she retires, if she leaves, it is because the cost of living. San Diego is the third most expensive city to live in the U.S., just under NY, and San Francisco. Mom loves the climate though, so we'll see. Hugs,

well the moon had come up not long
before janet decided to get up around 3am to see if she can get through most of cc before she goes for her walk around the big block as she's not walking long distance like she did this past weekend and didn't yesterday either due to errands before 9:30 as she just had finished cc and didn't get onto fb/email which sure piled up when they visited master, mommy finished her christmas shopping, picking up 2 gallons of milk, picking up a pizza, returning that #$#$# meat to the other store and then the bank all done by just afternoon time! then she was online till around 3 when she finally got the sheets and pillow cases out as they should've gone out before they left, but she was glued to this machine instead. well at least mommy is now done as she got even more for nat seeing she thought she had finished when she started at ocean state job lot 2 weeks ago, guess not. she got janet her socks for work and 2 turtlenecks as janet's giving mommy her mock turtlenecks which mommy gave back to her and now is wearing more of them than usual so needs them back, no problems janet doesn't care for them! she's got baking today finishing up she hopes molasses cringles for herself, gingerbread for mommy for her 87th birthday tomorrow, and then lemon-lime-or-range sugar cookies for nat and a cinnamon strussel quick bread for her asst. boss at work. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Dear K. Whiskers & Family,
Thank you for your catmail! Sorry you had to hide this weekend, but I'm glad the visitors didn't take away any of your presents.

You are supposed to have a week long rain? That's great! The creek will really be flowing by the end of the rain.

Thank you for complimenting me on teaching Mason. I may not be the best, but I sure know my pawrents better than anyfur else. MOL! I'll pass along the Angel kitty hugs to my pawrents. My dear BFF you and your family are always in our prayers.

Thank you for the poem "A Recipe for Christmas All Year Long". I sure enjoyed it. And thank you for my vote with purrs, hugs and prayers. Wishing you and your family a very blessed night and sweet dreams.

I'm sorry I missed your and Talley's wedding anniversary. My love to you both!

It was a cold clear day. The snow wasn’t expected
again until evening. The Castle Christmas party was this evening and as usual the kitties flying in from out of town, would be arriving early. At least the weather was clear so that the Royal Squadron Air operation wouldn’t be hindered by weather delays.
After a breakfast of steak and eggs, Pete said that he would like to go on shelter rounds with Bobby and the boys; He especially wanted to make the trip in order to invite The Wolves to tomorrow’s Nutcracker Christmas party in person. He asked who else wanted to go and it was unanimous. The whole family wanted to visit the wolves. Angel Maggie and Callie had made fruit cakes to take along and the kids had made some lovely decorations for the tree and the cave. Chloe though, had made some very special gifts. She had sewn quilted stockings for each member of the pack. Pete and Whiskers had shopped for the adult males, Talley and all of her sisters had found wonderful gift for all of the females, and Flower and the rest of the kids had pooled their allowances to buy gifts for all of the pups. They had bought chew toys and balls to chase. They had purchased squeaky toys and treat boxes that required the pups to solve the puzzle to get a treat. It was going to be a fine Christmas for their new friends.
Chloe would present the stockings to Phillip with instructions to have the stockings filled after the pack was asleep on Christmas Eve, so that they could awaken to presents and fun.
Pete and Whiskers had created a pile of the gifts that they would be taking to the shelter. On top of the pile Pete placed his briefcase and his laptop. Raven and Murphy had extensively researched the maple syrup business and had ordered the equipment that the wolves would need in order for their amazing Maple Syrup to be marketed commercially. They had even designed several logos for the bottles and would sit down with Phillip to discuss which one they would like to appear on the bottles. Pete estimated that the Wolves could be running a successful business before winter was over.
Angel Maggie and Callie had ideas for maple flavored cookies, snack cakes and candies that the wolves could produce as well.
Pete had discussed with Whiskers the idea that they could buy the wolves a number of electric powered ATVs that could be recharged from the Shelters big solar array. They could use these to pull small trailers to make harvesting the maple sap more efficient. Pete had a feeling that his big friend Carlos would love driving one of the ATVs. Whiskers had liked the idea and had discussed with Talley the possibility of them funding the purchase of one or two of the ATVs. She was happy to be a part of funding the wolves business.
There was tap at the door and Pete looked up to see Belle and Misty at the door. Belle carried a basket and he got up to welcome them inside. He greeted them happily. Belle said, “Good morning, Pete. I made some cookies and I thought would ask Angel Maggie and Callie to taste

them and give me their opinion on them. Callie had heard Belle and came out of the kitchen to greet Belle and Misty with hugs. Misty asked, “Momma, may I go play with Daisy and her sisters?”
Tabitha and Daisy came into the kitchen and Belle said, “If they would like to play, you may, but if they’re busy, come right back.”
Misty was greeted with hugs and happy laughter and ran off to play with her friends.
A Maggie poured tea and Callie placed some of Belle’s cookies on a plate. Callie tasted one and smiled. “Delicious Belle, What are the nuts in them?”
Belle said, “Arthur found a Walnut tree, not far from our shelter. He climbed up and tossed nuts down to me. Then he picked persimmons to use as a natural sweetener. What do you think? Are they good?”
Talley came into the kitchen and exchanged hugs with Belle and accepted one of the cookies. “Yum! These are great!”

Bobby called at 11:30 and said that he and his brothers were just finishing the check-out of the helicopter and offered to pick the kids up at school and bring them home in the helicopter. Pete replied, “They’d love that! We’ll see you shortly.”
Talley told Pete that he should tell all of the shelter kitties that if they needed something special to wear for the party tonight, that they should come up to the house before the party, Angels Sylvie and Lucy were helping out with a little angel magic.. They had also agreed to transport the wolves if they wished to attend the party. They had received Royal invitations, from Queen Kelsee.
It wasn’t long before the sound of chopper blades announced the arrival of the boys and the kids coming home from school.
Mitch, Pete and Whiskers carried the boxes out to the helicopter and the rest of the family climbed aboard and buckled up.
Pete said, “Let’s go direct to the Wolves’ cave, and then come back here to get the ATVs to make the rest of the shelter rounds.”

Bobby was flying today, with Storm as co-pilot. Bobby checked the area around the helicopter; saw that it was clear, rolled power in and lifted off.
The Landing zone had been shoveled free of snow and the landing lights came on as they approached. Bobby settled into a hover and eased the big helicopter down.
Phillip came out to meet them. Pete climbed down and told him that they had some secret cargo, “For your eyes only, Phillip. It’s the Christmas gifts for the pack. I’d like you to be the one to fill the stockings for the pups and the younger wolves. Phillip grinned, “I have to wear a fat red suit?”
Pete looked at the big lean wolf and smiled, “No, but that would be something to see. Can we put the boxes in your private quarters?”
Phillip said, “I don’t really have any private quarters, but I do have an area that I’ve set aside as an office. I can close the door and no one will go in.”
Pete said, “Good enough! Bobby, Storm, Inky, Mitch, Pete and Whiskers grabbed boxes and followed Phillip into the cave. Raven and Ms. Murphy followed along carrying Pete’s briefcase and the laptop.
Phillip led them to a far corner of the cave, near the medical area. He opened a door and switched on the light. There was a small table, three straight back chairs and two boxes with papers in them. Phillip directed them to put the boxes against the wall. Pete said, I was wondering if you had considered attending the Castle Christmas Party.”
Phillip said, “I had thought about it, but I think it might be best to wait a little longer. Perhaps we could participate in some smaller gatherings first, to allow the pack to get to know the kitties in smaller numbers, and for the kitties to get to know us. Some of us have been discussing the idea of hosting a ‘get to know you party’ here at the cave. I wouldn’t want for our presence to make any kitties uncomfortable.”
Whiskers spoke, “Phillip, I think the idea of a party here is an excellent one, but I think you should know that you and your pack have been accepted as brothers and sisters by the kitties of the Feline Empire. You will be welcomed whenever you choose to join the gatherings.”
Phillip said, “That is very good to hear. We will be participating more and more as the pack comes to accept that is our home and that no will try to harm us here.”
Pete motioned to Raven and Murphy who had spread some drawings and plans on the table, “We have something to show you, Phillip. Your Maple syrup is fantastic and you can use it to make your pack completely self-supporting. If you want we can set you up to produce and

market your product! Take a look at the plans and think it over, Raven and Ms Murphy even designed a couple of possible logos for your bottles.”
Phillip looked through the proposal and nodded this would enable us to buy our own meat and supplies. As he turned to the page with the ATV’s pulling trailers full of sap cans, (Raven had photoshopped Carlos into the driver’s seat) He smiled broadly. “I think perhaps Carlos might need a driving lesson or two before we trust him not to run over us.” He paused and turned to Pete and Whiskers you and your families are remarkable. I hope you understand how much we appreciate what you are doing not just for us but for our descendants. By helping us to become self-sustaining, it means that we won’t have to prey on cattle. That means that farmers won’t hunt us to extinction. This pack has been my life and I worried every day, what would become of it when I’m gone. Now I believe that I can see a future where the pack can prosper and survive. How soon can we start producing our syrup? How do we handle the financial matters?”
Pete nodded, “Angel Sassy is our attorney. She’ll help you with contracts and regulations. Raven and Ms. Murphy will teach you book keeping and the investment specialists at the Royal Bank will help your profits grow. You’re starting your business debt free, so that should help you be profitable right away.”
Phillip held up the images of the logos that Raven and Murphy had come up with. One was a running wolf. The other was wolf on a mountaintop with the rising moon over him. His head was back in a howl.
Phillip tapped the second one, “This one, where the wolf is singing to the moon!”
Pete said, “We’ll get the bottles ordered and Angels Lucy and Sylvie will begin carving the factory out of the mountain right away. Phillip, Merry Christmas! Our party at the house is tomorrow. We’ll make the first trip at 6:00. We’re going to have fun!”
Phillip led them out of his small office into the cave.
Talley and the girls were laughing and enjoying their time with the wolves. Flower, Ralph and their sisters were playing with the pups. Flower lifted his head and gave a pitched howl, which made the wolf pups laugh.
Whiskers said, “Time to go, everyone, we have other shelters to visit.”
They boarded the helicopter and returned to the house where they took the ATV’s to the rest of the Shelters. Talley and the girls helped friends with outfits for tonight’s Royal Christmas Party. The excitement was growing.

As they left the boathouse shelter, their guests, led by Oliver, followed them up the house. The foxes we’re so excited that they seemed to vibrate. Valentina had framed their family’s invitation to the party. She told Talley and Whiskers, “Never did I think, that my Alex and I would be invited by the Queen to a Royal Party. This truly is a great day for us!”
Talley and her sisters smiled at the little fox.
The party was everything that they had hoped for, Callie and Maggie’s menu was the talk of the party. Whiskers and Talley danced far into the night! Pete, Thomas, and Mitch had thanked Queen Kelsee, and had helped carry the sleeping kits to the SUVs. Talley and Whiskers said their goodbyes and when they arrived home and the kits were put to bed, they joined the family for a quiet drink.

Dear K. Whiskers & Family,
I've heard those Bluejays can be SO mean, especially in the Spring. I'm glad your Mom comes out when she hears them squawking and rescues you. I'm glad you shake your paw at them from behind the glass!

I liked the quote about cats being the Christmas in one's life. I will take care and you all do, too.

Thank you for my vote. I left you a vote and hope that you and yours had a great Monday. Thank you for the purrs and warm hugs for me and my family. I will spread them around. Keeping all of you in my prayers.

Purrs & hugs,

Come visit me, Angel King Malachi & Mason -- I'll have a photo up very soon!.
