2/28/13 Final Official Blog of King Barney! +30
Wow! That does sound final! Tomorrow we sleep in--- wonder if the dogs will understand. Ginger woke mom before 4am today and had to go out. Zeus is trying to wake her up with purr therapy. This month has flown by, though there were days it didn't seems so. We have been kept busy with prayers and visits to sick kitties and families in our realm and with fun celebrations too!

Well, I have been been searching for an appropriate story for this morning and I keep coming back to mom's friend Anne, who isn't a rescued cat or dog, but probably one of our best friends. Mom says she learned most of what she knows from her, about our needs and behavior. Mom met Anne when she first joined the rescue. Anne was the oldest member, even back then, gruff to people, but one could not find a kinder or more caring person, when it came to rescuing cats and dogs. Anne was the real work horse of the group--- making sure everyone had food and supplies, bringing it to the colonies of feral kitties the rescue supported. Live-trapping cats, bringing them to vet appointments for healthcare and spay/neuter. Anne helped with transportation to adoptions and had a special Kennel license for her home. She fostered many special needs cats through the years, ones needing regular medications, having physical disabilities, or diseases such as feline leukemia, which other groups might euthanize.

When mom first met Anne, she didn't talk much, especially to new people. You had to prove that you were there for the long haul. Finally, when mom's car died, she needed a ride to the adoptions and Anne gave her that ride. Gradually they became closer and Anne began asking her for help with such things as kitten and cat trapping. She taught mom about caring for motherless kittens and understanding the needs of feral cats. One weekend Anne had a family event to go to and she asked mom to take care of a cat she was fostering and had a feeding tube. Mom doesn't even remember why it had a feeding tube, but she then realized that she had earned Anne's trust.

You may remember that we announced last weekend that Anne needed to go into a nursing home. Mom does hope to visit soon, as it is not far from our home. Anne surely needs your continued prayers. She was always a fiercely independent person and has not had an easy life. When she was young, she had an alcoholic husband and raised 5 children without much assistance from him. After she lived by herself and dedicated her life to the rescue. Now she is in her mid to late 80s and has both physical and memory issues and surely is struggling with depression, because she always was the one who took care of herself and others. Do apologize for ending on a downer, it was not intended. The up is that we are all in this life together, no matter who we are--- cat, dog or human. As we age, the lines between friends and family blur and we are dependent on both, whether near or far away.We thank you again for being our CC family.

2/26/13 Final Tuesday as King Barney! +15
By Friday Morning you will have a new Queen JosieMae#193862 and we will be sleeping in, so we can come come back and begin blogging on our own schedules, as our ordinary selves. We want everyone to know it has been decided to have the official Coronation on Thursday 2/28/13 at 7:30pmEST, 6:30Central, 4:30Pacific. We also want to let you know that since we have received so many positive comments on our rescue blogs, we would like to continue bringing you stories, though on a less regular schedule, say twice a month or more, if mom is up to it. We will continue to leave them on the Inspiration page, so you may also consider that a reading room for our stories. We are still looking for the battery charger to get the camera up and running and will add pictures from our stories on the Inspiration page too.

Well, we did promise to finish Rosebud's story and mostly just to tell what a special kitty she was and how she ruled the house in her day. Once she came to mom the second time, there was no doubt she was going to stay. Mom's friend knew how much mom loved Rosebud and said Rosebud was too old to make more changes. She did tell her too, how feisty a cat Rosebud was in her youth. She got along with Midnight in the house, but if she happened to get outside, she had no qualms about chasing the largest of dogs out of her yard! Once she settled in with mom, she had a few other tricks up her sleeve, so to speak. Not that she wore sleeves. This was still during the time of Pasha the Great and, as you might remember, he had to be kept away from other cats, because he simply didn't accept them. Well, one afternoon mom returned from work to find Rosebud in her room, curled up by the heat register, with Pasha and Agatha! She was grooming Pasha and simply gave mom a look to say, "I'm in control now." Mom almost fainted, but it wasn't a one time occurrence. From that time on, Rosebud was part of a trio.

Rosebud did have her weaknesses when it came to health and some of them serious, like her allergies to fish and antibiotics. Before mom figured out the fish allergy, it meant several runs to the vet and it is not easy to find catfood without fish in it! Rosebud's face and ears would turn bright red when she ate anything with fish and she would vomit, with symptoms becoming progressively worse as time went on. Mom knew about human's with fish allergies and she searched for catfood without fish, finally discovering Wellness Chicken and Turkey flavors, with no added fish oils. The problem with many foods are that while the label says chicken, fish oil is added as a supplement. That is great for most cats, but can be deadly for one with allergies. She also was sensitive to many commonly used antibiotics, which made things difficult in times of illness. Luckily, she was a very healthy cat, for the most part.

So that was Angel Rosebud's story for the most part. She is a very special kitty in mom's heart and lived well into her teens.

Getting caught up
Happy Thursday everyone! Mom is taking the day off from running around so I actually get to meow with you...woohoo...MOL!
Mom took the Jeep to the dealership yesterday morning at 9am to have the engine checked, oil change, rear brake pads replaced, & to have a recalled part replaced. They gave her a bright red Dodge Dart as a loaner until they got finished & it's a good thing they did! They were super busy so they didn't call for her to pick it back up until 4pm. It takes at least an hour for the round trip so mom finally walked in the door about 5:15. Not long after she'd been home she remembered they also needed to pick up the fund raiser items they'd ordered from the school. Dad volunteered for that run so mom could make dinner but he called right after he'd left & told her to put her pans away because he was stopping to pick something up. No argument from mom on that one...MOL!
Today mom, me, Patches, Trixie & Fluffers are all taking it easy. Fluffers & Trixie had a good romp earlier but that's typical of our two little whirlwinds...MOL! Sammie dog finally woke up from her nap & whined to go out so she's out in her area right now barking happily at the horses in the pasture. Mom says she can't stay out too long because it's pretty cold but at least the wind isn't blowing like it had been the past few days. We're watching as the next round of winter weather approaches us. We should be getting either snow or ice by this time tomorrow so we're not looking forward to that. We're ready for spring to arrive but old man winter seems to have other plans. Well got to run. Mom says the sweeper monster HAS to come out today whether Fluffers likes it or not...MOL! I'll meow at you again soon.

Loving hugs,
Zaboo & NICE Crew

P.S. We're THRILLED to see you finally got the badge you deserved on your page Beau! I guess persistence does pay off @ times...MOL! Congrats!

2/21/13 Made it to Thursday Day for K.Barney! +2
Got mom up by 4:00AM, but she still isn't awake. Today she is remembering our Angel Rosebud, who passed 2/21/09 and was a contemporary of Angels Pasha and Agatha. Rosebud was the only cat Pasha accepted to associate with after Agatha. Come to think of it, I don't think we have told Rosebud's story, but guess that will have to wait until next week, because we do have to finish Grisha's.

Anyway, mom brought Grisha home and put him in the now famous guestroom. She had high hopes that Pasha would adjust to him, especially after adjusting so well to Agatha, but it was not to be. Mom had to keep Grisha in the guest room, except when she could close Pasha in her room and give him a bit of time to roam the house. She felt very bad and wasn't sure what to do. Going back to the Humane Society was not an option.

Well, it just so happened that mom did have a friend,Marilyn, who stayed with her frequently, while she was looking for a more permanent place to live. Mom had met Marilyn at her church. Marilyn had some learning disabilities, but was very independent and was taking classes to become a certified nursing assistant. Of course, while staying with mom, Marilyn did have to share the guestroom with Grisha, who worked his charm on her too. Whenever Marilyn was there, he was her best friend and purr therapist! Doesn't take a detective to see where this was leading! When Marilyn finally found a place to stay, Grisha went to live with her in her apartment.

We are not quite to happily ever after yet. Marilyn had asthma and after a few months it got much worse and, she was told that she really needed to give up her cat. She was heartbroken, but then another opportunity came up. With her asthma getting worse, she really was not safe living alone and couldn't return to living with mom either. There was an opening in a group home and a community called "On Our Own." Not only was Marilyn able to find a safe place to live and job opportunities, but Grisha found a new home and purpose too, although he had to live in a different house than Marilyn-- as a therapy cat! The house residents cared for him and he gave lots of purr therapy and love!

Again, we are running out of space. Grisha and Marilyn have both passed over the Bridge, but lived very productive and caring lives. Stay warm and we will come back with another story on Tuesday. Hope to see everyone this weekend, with more purrsonal visits and please, if you have questions, we will be glad to answer any we can.

2/19/13 Happy Tuesday to You From King Barney!
Got your Badge--- YAY!!!
The temp is +5, but a windchill of -14. The good mews is that its the warmest temp in our state. Can you believe that this month is more than halfway over! I do hope you have been enjoying it and your time with us at the castle. We have also been enjoying JosieMae's blogs and we remind all to vote for her page#193862 daily, so she can be Queen of March.

Well the bad mews is that mom is still looking for the camera charger, but the good is that we will have another pic to go with today's story when she finds it. I thought I would tell the story of her first visit to the Golden Valley Humane Society, Golden Valley, MN, not far from us. It was shortly after her grandmother had passed and during the time of Angels Pasha and Agatha. She was job hunting and found a notice of an opening in Humane Education for the Humane Society. Now, at that time she knew she didn't qualify for it, but she wanted the info.
It sure was an interesting trip too. They gave a tour of the facilities, including the adoption areas, which included dogs, cats and other critters. The cats were kept both in cages and had large free rooms, where they were given time out of the cages. Well, I'm sure many of your pawrents know the danger of visiting the cat area of the Humane Society and mom didn't get out free either. As she walked through a stripped orange paw came out of a cage she passed and grabbed her arm. Mom stopped and said hi, removing the claws from her clothing and giving the cat a pat. She turned to leave and again she felt a tap and the claws grabbed her firmly. Again, she stopped to pet the cat. His eye caught hers, as if to say "get me out!" Mom thought about it, but she had Pasha at home and knew she had been told he was not good with other cats. Anyway, she continued her tour, but had to pass this cat once more on the way out. She did not even have him in mind, when the same paw stopped her one last time. The eyes pleaded--- "Please lady, I need to get out of here--- lets blow this pop-stand!" This time she asked about him and his adoption fee. It was only $35.00, with a gift certificate for a low cost neuter. That day Grisha, which is what mom named him, escaped with mom to a new life! It wasn't the end of their adventures, because, although mom kept him in the guest room and had him neutered immediately, he did not get along with Pasha, who wanted to kill him--- no doubt about it.

As usual, we will have to turn this into a two-parter and finish on Thursday. This story has a wonderful ending, so stay tuned. Grisha was a really sweet cat, downright irresistible cat, and even though mom knew it wouldn't work to keep him with Pasha, he was never going back to the Humane Society.

Enjoy your Tuesday! See you Thursday and hope your week is a lot warmer than our promises to be. King Barney.
