Hi Whiskers
Well, they did make it to the game, but after two lightning delays and the threat of more storms to come, the rest of the sophomore game was cancelled. We won though, with the only touchdown of the night, MOL! The nephew even got in a couple of good plays, according to Mom. The varsity game will be tomorrow evening. He has a chance to play in that too.
I've been feeling mischievous today. GM and GGM told Mom that I'd been getting into things and pestering them all day, MOL! Moi? I would never do that! ;)
I'm glad that the fursibs seem to be making themselves at home. They will probably go into the new house when your mom isn't looking. We're like that, you know. Hehe.
You may be right about the time of day being too late to see the deer. The past couple of times that Mom has been out driving, she hasn't seen any either. That will change come fall-especially at night.
Hope you and your family have a great Labor Day weekend! We have more open houses and maybe a game to go to!
Love,
Sakura

Six AM is "later"? Wow, your Mom must get
outside early! Our Mom hates mornings. If mornings were banned, she'd be just fine with it. She also wouldn't mind the 90° weather. It hasn't been summer around here at all. I think there have been a total of days that came near 90 and they weren't all in a row. Mostly it's been in upper 60s and low 70s all summer, and that doesn't feel like summer. Mom bought Dad a nice new hard-sided swimming pool for their anniversary this year, and they've had ONE day that was warm enough to swim in it. Bummer!

Your cats with long lean bodies factoid doesn't hold true around here. Sasha is the most outgoing and social, most vocal and protective cat in the house, and she's also the stockiest and heaviest. Hugs, KC and the Zoo Crew

Hi Whiskers
Aww, you tried out Mom's lap! How cool! I don't blame your Mom for kind of worrying, sometimes we do get clingy when we don't feel so well but I'm glad you're fine. And that Sugar Bear has decided to start talking to your Mom again.

Have a great weekend! -- Mike & the family

Hi Whiskers and Family!
Yep, lap sitting does make our hoomans happy. They get a real kick out of it, but we kinda enjoy it, too! I love having Mom pet me. Oleo is another lap cat and Pumpkin is, too. Dayzee is too standoffish and Duchess loves to sit in Dad's lap, but only wants Mom for the food she can give her...MOL! Felix is getting a little more lap time in than he ever used to. BC is a Momma's boy when it comes to laps. I guess you could say we all like sitting in a lap or two, sometimes. I'm glad you are still learning what makes your Mom happy...MOL!

We had a low of 70 this morning and it rose up to another 86. Right now, we are 74 with a heat index of 77 and 71% humidity. Better than yesterday. Mom took Molly for a nice long walk today and it wasn't too bad at that time. The sun was hiding behind some clouds.

I hope the deer are just coming by and getting their water earlier and that they are okay. An hour can make a big difference.

Maybe, it's still a little too hot for Sugar Bear and Ebony to go into the new house. I'll bet when the weather gets cooler they will go inside, though. At least, they are getting used to it being there.

Frosty didn't come by until after 4:30 today and Mom is praying that she'll be here before 4pm on Wednesday when she has to take her to the vet. Otherwise, Mom will have to reschedule it for a different day. We'll keep you posted on how she does.

Mom and Dad are going out to a friend's house, tomorrow for a cookout, cuz Dad has to work on Monday. What a bummer, huh? Oh, well. He only has to work for 5 hours.
We hope you all enjoy your holiday weekend.

I'm gonna say goodnight for now, so I'm leaving you a furry vote with love and wishes for a blessed evening, sweet dreams and lots of prayers for you and your family. Take care and I'll catch ya, later. Love ya!

Lots of hugs and headbonks,
Mischief


If I'd known it would make my Mom so happy to sit in her lap, I might have done it a lot sooner! It doesn't take much to make these silly humans happy, does it? MOL! I sat in Mom's lap again last night. I guess I am mellowing out in my old age! Old age?! Yikes!

It’s going to be another hot one here today with temps in the nineties. My Mom took Callie and me for a walk in our cat stroller this morning and it was already warm outside at 6 a.m. We left some water in our bucket down by the empty creek, but we haven’t seen any deer for quite a while. We hope it’s just because we are walking later, now that Dad is back at work.

Whitey and Orangie are doing fine, both already catnapping in the upstairs window. Our outside fursibs, Sugar Bear and Ebony, were waiting for Mom this morning to feed them. Last night my Mom saw them both sitting on top of the new cat house that Mom set up for them. Mom is hoping to see them go inside the cat house soon. Right now they are both a little wary of it. Sugar Bear has stated meowing at Mom again when she brings their food out, but still not letting Mom touch her yet.

Hey Whiskers!
Thanks. Mom hopes those 6 packets of powder do the trick! Mom called the shelter to tell them. They seemed to think it was a very common thing. Mom has adopted three times from there before & never had that problem. She would have taken precautions if she had known. Oh well. She is dealing with it. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening.

Hi Orangie, Whiskers and the furamily!
So, kitties, you ready for the long weekend? When does your dad have to be back in the classroom?

Mom won't be able to post for us tomorrow, the folks have this family thingy happening, but I will try to catch up the next day.

Wishing you and the entire furamily a purrfect holiday weekend!

Dear K. Whiskers & Family,
About the lap sitting, the humans seem to really love that. Easily satisfied, they are. MOL!

Nineties is pretty hot. We hit our high about an hour ago of 109*, but there is only 10% humidity, so it's not that bad. I'm glad to hear that you and Callie are still taking walks in your stroller. You're probably right about the deer. They come out pretty early in the day and maybe you're just missing them.

I'm glad to hear about Whitey and Orangie. What a success story with them for your Mom! And I think Sugar Bear and Ebony will come around on the petting pretty soon. It's a good sign that Sugar Bear meows at Mom before feeding. So they were sitting on top of their new cat house, but haven't gone in it yet? They might think it's a trap or a carrier right now. They'll come around.

Thank you for "Cat Fun Facts". It was very interesting. I knew about the cats responding well to the "ee" sound. I would come running when my Mama called out "Baby!". Thank you for the vote with soft purrs, hugs and prayers. I'm enclosing a vote and wishes for your and your family to have a very blessed day. And I'll give my pawrents "cool" hugs from you all.

Purrs & kitty kisses,
Angel K. Malachi

Hey Whiskers!
Sorry you haven't seen any deer lately. Hope they are okay. That is great that Sugar Bear & Ebony are sitting on the new cat house. Bet they will get curious soon. Maybe when no one is around they go inside. Yes Mom's sure do enjoy a kitty curled up in their lap. We always enjoy your fun facts. Have heard that before about the cat names ending in ee! And Mom never named any of her 8 cats a name like that! MOL. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. Angel Anderson

Doing my infamous calico cyclone spin...
across your page as I paw you a vote & leave you a bag of catnip candies to keep you energized for the entire holiday weekend.
Mom is busy cleaning house today because dad & the kids will be home for the next 3 days...plus she's supposed to babysit baby Risten tomorrow afternoon. I'm getting more used to the idea of a crying baby around sometimes but I wish Monkey wouldn't whack me every time I get too close to him. Geesh...hiss at the furless thing once & she never forgets...MOL! She's very protective of him & the Dynamic Duo kittens (Sneakers & Piglet) but I guess that's okay because Angel Zaboo was very protective of me too. She would have made a great mommy cat but she'll have to settle for fursisters instead...MOL! Well got to make this short so mom can finish cleaning before everyone gets home.

Have a safe & happy Labor Day weekend everyfur & I'll meow at you one more time on Monday before Monkey takes over the blogging.

Much to mom`s surprise Percey decided to join the family. She is a lap cat and loves cuddling. I was not a lap girl even though mom would have loved it. Mom is still trying to get Percey to eat more.

How pawsome you got all lovey with mom and graced her lap with your handsome self!! We bet Mom enjoyed every moment!! :) I myself purrfurr mom's lap and chest to dad, but Mouse finally curled up on Dad's lap not too long ago, its been five yrs in the making come Tuesday. It took her a long time to even let Dad pet her. Mom thinks the rescue Lady's husband was NOT NICE to many of her kitties. She was terrified of men and does not like strangers at all.
Mom was late getting up this morning, you should have seen her move once she did, I was OK with it she just threw a giant pile of treats down and left!!!MOL!!!
We hope you all have a pawsome Labor Day weekend!!

Hi Whiskers
The guys didn't come today, so it was our usual chaotic kind of quiet, MOL. We live across the street from a school, so it gets pretty wild in the mornings and afternoons. That's one of the reasons why they want to move. You'd think that people didn't know how to drive with how they are crazy around here!
Well, Mom asked about my weight today. Bad mews: I haven't put any on. Good mews: I haven't lost any.
Mom and GM are talking about going to the HS season opener tomorrow. Hopefully it doesn't rain until after.

On her way home Talley stopped at the greenhouses.
She dismounted from her Electra Glide and walked across the pavers of the commons. The greenhouses were attractive. At first glance one might assume they were a botanical garden and in a way, Talley supposed, they were. They would provide fresh wholesome food for what was rapidly becoming a thriving community. When she arrived at the first of the two large structures she entered through the door, which was propped open. At first she thought it was empty, but then she saw Storm on a ladder at the far corner. He was wiring a thermostat sensor. She walked over, but watched silently, not wanting to disturb him. When he snapped the cover in place, she said. “Hi Storm, this looks great. It won’t be long before you’ll be able to start planting.”
He climbed down and smiled broadly. “Hi Talley, No, it won’t be long, we’re thinking we’ll finish this one up late this afternoon and the other one on Saturday. Flower was here earlier and he said that you have a lot of lettuce seedlings that we can have to start planting.”

“That’s true, he and his sisters have been transplanting the lettuce that they’ve thinned, and despite the conventional wisdom, that you can’t transplant seedlings that small, they seem to be getting about ninety percent of them to thrive. I guess they have a magic touch. Storm smiled and said, “That little skunk can do anything he sets his mind to. I’ve often wondered what happened to his family, last winter, but Pearl taking him to be her kitten was a Blessing for him and this community.”
Talley was a little surprised. Storm was usually the quietest of the three friends, but his admiration for Flower and his sisters had made him open up some. Talley asked, “Have you seen Whiskers and Pete lately?”
Storm said, “They were here and said that they were going to go get some lunch. They invited me, Bobby and Inky to go with them, but we brought our lunches. Angel Maggie gave us meat from the cookout last night and we made sandwiches. Inky has gone back to our place to get them and Bobby is over at the farmers market getting us some limeades.”
Talley thanked Stormy and walked back to her motorcycle.
She drove carefully up the steep mountain road enjoying the fresh breeze and the smell of pines until she came to her home. She felt good today the colors seemed brighter, the air cleaner and she looked at the home that she and Whiskers shared with their family and thought, “It looks like a home, it shows warmth and welcome.”
She raised the garage door with her remote and pulled in, parking the bike in its usual place she rocked it back on the stand and climbed off. The engine made little clicking sounds as it cooled. Something smelled good as she entered the house from the garage. Whiskers was at the counter, with te Panini press and something good was in it. He turned, saw her and forgot all about his cooking. He went to her, and gave her a big hug followed by a deep kiss. He just held her in his arms and Pete walked around the island to tend the sandwiches that Whiskers was pressing.
Talley said, “Wow, what a welcome. Dis you miss me?”
Whiskers grinned sheepishly and said, I miss you when you’re not in the same room with me. I especially miss you when you’re you on the highway with your motorcycle. It’s not you that worries me it’s other drivers.”
Talley ruffled his fur. “I always have the angels watching over me and I pretend that I’m invisible, that other drivers can’t see me, and I drive like that, I wait for wide spaces, I slow down before I‘m on top of other vehicles. I know you worry, but I’ll be very careful and we do so much good when we make our rounds.”

Whiskers nodded and smiled at her, “I know sweetheart, and part of what makes you, you is that you are fearless and brave and ….
Pete said, “I hate to interrupt but lunch is ready.”
Talley laughed, “Saved by the timer.” While Pete took the food to the table Talley hugged Whiskers and kissed him again. “What kind of sandwiches did you make, sweetheart?”
Whiskers said, “We had pulled pork from dinner last night so I used that. We’re having pulled pork, potato salad, and slaw. We’re also having a small piece of the best apple pie in the world. “ Talley tickled him and he ran to the table.
Pete watched his sister and his brother and silently said a small prayer thanking the Lord that they had found one another.
Talley was excited about a book that she had about on NPR as she was driving back from the Hairballz goodwill visits. It was called “A Street Cat Named Bob”. She said, “We have to read this, it’s a true story and the author is James Bowen. It’s all about how he found and befriended a cat who in turn saved him. There’s a little video on You Tube from a TV show in England. You have to watch it. Here’s the address.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ba1PEHRAZo
(I posted it on our page over on the Mewsroom forum so you can watch it there if you want. That’s the “Whiskers & Talley page at Whiskers&the girls)
Just then Raven and Murphy came inside to see what was for lunch and Raven said that she had heard about Bob too. Raven and Ms. Murphy decided they wanted to read the book.
Talley finished her lunch and asked are you going back to the greenhouses today?”
Pete said, “I think so we’re close to finishing the first one and we still have a lot of daylight left. Would you like to come with us?”
Talley said she would and ran upstairs to change into some work clothes. When she came down again she asked, “What tools do I need?”
Whiskers said, There are hundreds of nuts and bolts that need to be inserted and tightened. Bring your Ixo power screwdrive and somme work gloves. Talley went to the garage and returned with her pink toolbox.
Callie said that dinner was going to be the Lemon Mushroom Chicken & Zoodles and that it would be ready around 6:30. Whiskers smiled, that was one of his favorite dishes.

He asked, “Are you making some hot crusty bread to go with it?”
She smiled, “The dough is in the proofing oven right now, It has a little thyme and garlic in it.”
Whiskers rubbed his tummy.
They drove down to the greenhouses and found Bobby, Inky and Storm hard at work. They had assembled the framework and mounted the big double insulated panes with a few nuts and bolts on each end, and now they were installing rest. Pete, Whiskers and Talley joined them. The work went fast and when school was out Flower and his sisters came over with Mitch and pitched in to help. The kittens had brought their Ixo drivers in their back packs and quickly joined in the work. They proceeded to put the screws in the lowest three rails.
Storm was working near Talley and said, “We have our radio here, if you’d like, we can put some music on. We were listing to all things considered on NPR but music would be fine too.”
Talley said, “Classical music might be nice. Did you happen to hear the piece on NPR about Bob the street cat?”
Storm said, “Oh I did, I just reserved the book at the K Sammy Library, I’m going to pick it up after work. I have a class tonight, but I’ll start reading it tomorrow. Doesn’t it sound like a good book?”
Talley said, I think the whole community will be reading it. It sounds so good.
Storm climbed down from his ladder and got another bag of nuts and bolts. He tuned the radio to the classical music station and turned it up soon they were all working in time to the music.
Bobby was going up and down the frames checking for any missing fasteners. He was finding that the work had been done well and that so far only a couple of nuts and bolts had been missed. At 5:15 they finished. Storm said he had to run to get to the library and then get home, and change for class. Bobby and Inky chatted with the kittens for a while before they went home to start their dinner. He said they were making spaghetti and meatballs using zoodles in the place of pasta. Chloe was joining them for dinner and she was making the salad.

Pete was happy, he had done a good days work. The community that he and the family had helped start was doing well and he was looking forward to a quiet evening with loved ones. Life was good. He gathered his tools, helped Talley roll up the extension cords and closed the door as they left.
Orangie and Whitey were setting the table and listening to something on one of their tablets, It was a British accented voice, and they pointed to the tablet and Callie said, This is the audio book about Bob the street cat. We can listen while we cook. We’ll turn it off now so we don’t spoil the book for you.”
Pete remarked, “Sounds like the guy is a good narrator.”
Whitey said, “Oh he is we just in the first chapter but I can tell it’s going to be great.”
Pete made a mental note to call the library in the morning and make an extra donation so that they could buy more copies of this book. He knew that it was going to be much in demand by the kitties in the community.
Angels Maggie, Lucy-Fur and Sylvia Seville materialized in the kitchen and the kittens ran to give them hugs. Maggie said, “The dinner smells great, How can I help?”
Callie said, “By sitting down and letting us serve you. Dinner is ready. Flower looked at Callie expectantly! She laughed, “Go ahead!”
Flower rang the dinner bell and announced, time to eat.”
Whiskers said grace, and then added a quick prayer for those kitties still in need healing. He told Ms Murphy, “I don’t know if you heard, but Mindy, Smudge’s sister is back home and recovering nicely.”
Ms Murphy nodded and said, I heard from Smudge just a while agoand he said she was resting and feeling much better.
They filled their plates and enjoyed the wonderful food. It had been a great day and Pete had decided to show CATS the Musical in the theater tonight. Whiskers finished his apple pie and pushed his plate away. “Oh my goodness that was a wonderful dinner. Thank you, sisters!”
The movie was fun with the whole family singing along. The kittens even moved in to the aisle and danced along with the performers.
At last Talley and Whiskers were in bed. It was clear and millions of stars twinkled above. Talley said, “My precious husband, have I told you how much I love you today?”
He laughed, “Yes, but I never tire of hearing it, and I love you too sweetheart, more than words have power to express.”
They snuggled together and soon fell asleep, meeting in a wonderful dream.

Hi Whiskers and Family!
Well, it was nice that Mom and Dad got to have a nice lunch and they did bring us some more kitty litter and Friskies, so I guess that has to count for something, right?

Wow, you climbed up in your Mom's lap for the very first time? And you laid there and let her pet you and scratch your head and ears? I can't believe you did that for the first time in 10 years! I practically live in Mom's lap, or Dad's lap if Mom isn't available at the time. And I demand that she pay attention to me. She can't read or anything else when I'm there. She has to keep scratching my head and ears and under my chin. If she stops, I push my head in her hand and make her continue. But alas, there are times when she has to get up to do something else and she literally throws me off! Hummmph! Well, maybe not quite like that, but I have to get down, anyway. Maybe, you are starting to mellow in your golden years, huh? Our Felix has started being like that more and more with Mom and Dad. He's 16, now. I think you will be more willing to sit in your Mom's lap now that you've tried it and like it. It would be nice for your Mom to be able to have at lease one lap cat.

How funny that your Mom thought there might be something wrong with you. But you have to admit, when we do something that is totally out of character, it's easy to understand where they are coming from. I take it she didn't find anything wrong with you? Our pawrents do worry a lot about us.

Today, we got up to 86 and the humidity was a little more than yesterday. Right now, we are 74 with a heat index of 78 and humidity is at 85%. Definitely, not in the desert!

We really enjoyed the cat funny! I'll bet that man was truly amazed that the cat had read the book...MOL! Thanks for sharing.

Well, sweet furiends, I'm gonna leave you a furry vote with love and wishes for a blessed evening, sweet dreams and lots of prayers for your family. Take care and I'll see ya, later. Love ya!

Lots of hugs and headbonks,
Mischief

Hey Whiskers!
I am fitting in okay. Mom has to clean my ears every 4-5 days & found out today I have intestinal parasites so Mom has to sprinkle powder on my food for six days. She is praying Dean doesn't pick it up too! Apparently this is very common in shelter cats. Just wish Mom had known. She would have taken me right from the shelter to the Vet & made sure I stayed in the bedroom until it was safe! Peace & love. Sweet Dreams. Kitty Kisses. Legend

There I was 7 years ago today,
a little kitten with my fur mom and siblings playing in the only home I’d ever known. Then just after suppertime the doorbell rang. I could never have imagined how my life was about to change! The next thing I knew, I was riding in a car with two strange but nice humans called “Mom” and “Dad”, over a great big bridge on my way to my forever home. I met another nice human named Big Bro Will, and a strange big gray & white lady cat who was not impressed at all by my arrival. When night came I got to sleep with my new Mom & Dad, and my Mom will never forget how she woke up in the night to see me snuggled up in Dad’s armpit with a blissed-out look on my face. Or how she woke up again to find Dad had turned over and in a panic, flipped on the light to look for me. There I was, curled up on her pillow and I have been the King of the pillow ever since.

Even though I’ve added about 16 lbs since those days, I’m still willing to share my pillow with Mom and sometimes even with my little sister Mojo. And I’m happy to be sharing my Adoptiversary with my CC friends! We have some barbecued Pacific Salmon and Tim Horton’s maple catnip doughnuts to take home to the family. Thanks for the tuna muffins with catnip sprinkles, and the great bubbly but most of all, thanks for celebrating with me today. -- Mike

Hi Whiskers!
Stopping by to say thanks for voting for Parker. She is a cute little COTD! We aren't sure if her mom knows about thank-you's. Only a few days ago she didn't even know how to navigate to other cat's pages. Her pal Dijon is trying to help her. We hope she gets the hang of things!

Hey Whiskers!
MOL! I can imagine your pawrents were both speechless! I was never a lap cat either. Dean is. He loves to spread out his 16+ pounds in Mom's lap! Glad you are okay. But I'm sure Mom will keep an eye on you anyway! Nothing new here. Dean & Legend are both napping. Mom has the fans going & the Solid gold oldies are playing on TV! Mom loves listening to that channel. She just started watching it Monday. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. Angel Anderson

Dear K. Whiskers & Family,
You surprised the heck out of me! I knew you "weren't a lap cat" from some earlier conversation with you. But you came, you kneaded you turned and sat! I'll bet your pawrents were speechless. It's nice isn't it? Lap sitting. I wasn't a lap cat for anyone but my Mama. Nobody else but her. Now Mom's watching you like a hawk, sure that something "must be wrong" with you. You DO gotta love humans!

We are staying pretty cool inside with the window units. It got up to 106* today (so far). But that's probably as far as it will go, seeing that it's almost 5:00 PM here. I'll give my Mama and Daddy big hugs from you.

I loved the "Cat Funnies"! Isn't that just like a cat! MOL! Thank you for sharing that with me. Thank you for my vote with soft purrs, hugs and prayers.

I'm enclosing a vote and wishes for you and your family to have a very blessed evening.

Purrs & kitty kisses,
Angel K. Malachi

I'm so happy Sugar Bear's nose is almost better and that she and Ebony are doing so well.

I loved the cats and babies comparison--how trueit is.

I always hated the vacuum monster and also the garbage truck.

It is supposed to cool down quite a bit tomorrow. I hate cold fronts.

Hi Whiskers!
Mom loved the "why kittens are better than babies", mol. She wants to add that you can take steps to make sure that your kitten never arrives on your doorstep one day with HER kittens for you to raise. Not like that has happened here, but it sure happens a lot out there!

Yay for Sugar Bear getting the last of the antibiotics! Now if she doesn't scratch at her nose like <ahem> some kitties who shall remain nameless did to their chin, the sore will be history in to time!

You are right, WHO would have thought we'd still have our CC going into September? And I couldn't be happier about that. My little sister was pretty stunned when just one week after she got her new page they announced CC would be closing soon, and now she'll get to celebrate her first birthday and her first adoptiversary right here after all. -- Mike

Purrs from the NICE Girls
It's supposed to reach 80 degrees here today with lots of humidity so mom is trying to get any laundry done early so the dryer doesn't overpower the A/C when she turns it on later.
Angel 'Captain' Sherman has finally returned from taking Fluffinella & Joey to their tropical honeymoon spot. It took him a little longer than anticipated due to storms along the route so he also had to deal with them being a tiny bit seasick. Guess they don't have their sea legs like he does...MOL! Anyway, they're now safely on the island & will return in a couple of weeks, but they sent this note back for everyone that came to their wedding & reception, or sent them a blog with a gift.
-----------------------------------------------
"Our dearest furiends,
We were thrilled to have you be part of our wedding day & reception, & would like to thank you for everything you've done to help us get our life together as a couple started out on the right paw. Each of the beautiful gifts you brought for us will be cherished furever & placed in prominent places in our new home on Angel Lake once it's completed (food & drink gifts will be taken care of while we're on the island though...MOL)!! Our special day was purrfect thanks to the love & helping paws of our family & furiends. We deeply appreciate each of you & are blowing warm, sweet kisses on the wind your way. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!" ~Fluffinella & Joey~
---------------------------------------------
Sniff, sniff...I already miss my spats with her every day but at least I've still got Monkey, Sneakers & Piglet to pick on...MOL! (She sent a pic of her basking on the beach so mom put it up on her profile today) I don't dare mess with Patches too much or I get the 'paws of justice' whacks that make me spin out of control. Speaking of spinning (MOL)...little sis Piglet is going to be a pawful as she grows up. She's got a purrsonality a lot like mine so she's always into something. Sneakers is a lot quieter & is more like Monkey but when she gets going there's no off switch...MOL! They're growing fast & are getting more fun each day so life definitely isn't boring around here! Well I've got to get spinning through the house so will try to meow at you one more time before I'm booted out of the blogging spot for next month.

Ornery purrs,
Q Trixie & NICE Girls
