Thank you for my COTD yesterday!
Thank you so much for COTD today! I am honored and truly blessed to have so met so many wonderful kitties here.

As many have mentioned, I am sort of a “therapy cat” for my dog brother, Kodiak. He loves our mom so much he was having a hard time when she would leave him alone. She tried dog walkers, leaving the TV on for him, coming home at lunch to see him and nothing would work. He would continue to “redecorate” the house by getting into the trash. MOL! In January, I will have been a year here in my forever home and Kodiak has been much better.

He is also very important to me too though. When I fractured my hip and needed surgery, he came with me to all my doctor appointments and it wasn’t so bad. I would hide behind him and he would love on me and make me feel safe. Every month when I need my nails trimmed, I go with Kodiak to his groomer and as long as he rides with me there, I am ok when I get home. I miss him when he goes on his walks and I am there to greet him at the door when he returns.

Well, enough about me :) Again, thank you so much for making my day special. Special thanks to Lady Dolly and her Mom Janada for being so caring and making my COTD dream come true!

Love and meows,
Shonti

PLEASE VOTE BLONDIE #256236 COTD MON. JULY 8TH
We would like to introduce you to Blondie #256236. She is the fursib to Puzzle, Lollapalooza Lili, ButtonBlue & Add-A-Line. Her mom adopted Her, Add-A-Line, & Angels Itsy Bitsy & Rusty Buckets when her friend Marie passed from Pancreatic Cancer. It was her wish that the kitties be kept together. They have their very own room to keep the stress to a minimum, but since Angels have crossed the Rainbow Bridge, their mom has begun to integrate her & Add-A-Line into the rest of the family. Blondie #256236 is shy girl who is easily scared by strangers and does not wander far from her room. She is also a little camera shy and always presents her mom with a difficult challenge by turning her back on her. Blondie #256236 loves to play with her Cat Charmer & Da-Bird toys and loves to chase her mice & balls. Her favorite treat is Tuna Greenies & being brushed by her new Mom. Please stop by and meet this shy & beautiful girl so she can have her very Own Shiny COTD Badge to wear.

We Congratulate Dolly #222609 on being our Lovely Queen of July and invite you to visit her at the castle during the month. Please paw by daily and give your support to Angel Yum Yum #93255 on her quest to become our August COTM.

Thank you for your continued support of the CMR Special Recognition Campaigns and our outstanding candidates! These campaigns are chosen for families who are trying to help other CC members by visiting and voting. In appreciation, we are leaving you a Catnip Chip Ice Cream Cone. This is Mouse # 219407 & Tucker with Mike # 161232, Angel Mallow & Evie for the CMR page # 46883.

Please Vote Snowflake (256313) COTD Monday May 24
Snowflake or Snowy as she is called by her mom has become one of the most active members of our CC family. She is always on hand to congratulate kitties who are celebrating. She consoles those who are sad, and she supports all of the catpaigns and special events here on CC.
Her fur mom had her babies in Snowy’s furever mom’s yard and even though her mom thought she would find homes for Snowy and her brother Tiinker, that wasn’t to be. Instead her mom fell in love, and kept these two precious kitties. Showflake surely deserves a COTD badge, won’t you please bring her your vote on Monday so that she can have a bright shiny COTD badge for her page!
..
Also, please keep those COTM votes rolling for Dolly (222609) so this beautiful kitty, can proudly wear the July COTM crown as our Queen. Remember to let her know how much we’ve enjoyed her stories of special cats and the things that we can learn from them..
Please remember to stop in to visit our current COTM, Whiskers (227256)) to let him know how much we’ve enjoyed his reign reign and his great Royal Train Tour up the California Coast.

So, On behalf of the whole CMR team, this is Pete (72572) and the Girls, and Princess and Sib's, thanking you for your continued support of the CMR’s special recognition COTD campaigns & our remarkable COTM candidates

Please Vote Serj & Leah #196985 COTD Mon 6/17
Our Special Recognition cats today are Serj & Leah #196985 who were both adopted from Lolly Pop
Farm Animal Shelter at the tender age of eight weeks old. Both quickly acclimated to their new
forever home by making fast friends with their new furry siblings with Serj #196985 getting close to
his sister Katie, who sadly is now an angel, and Leah being wherever her brother Gir is. Like all of us
cats, both of these fine felines have their own personalities and likes & dislikes. Serj is pretty
outspoken but Leah #196985 is shy. Serj's morning routine is waiting for his mom every morning in
the bathroom and after her shower, insists on head scratches and kisses and lovey dovey time. Leah
#196985 is a bit feral but she has relaxed enough that she will allow her mom to pet her on occasion
without running away. Leah lets her mom know when their food bowls are empty by standing on the
counter and meowing an alert to have the bowls filled. Leah only likes dry food and especially likes it
when it is poured fresh into her bowl. Serj #196985 will jump over the dog gate to get inside his
mom's bedroom so he can cuddle with her even when he whacks at the ferrets during the night. Leah
prefers the company of Gir and hides very well when she knows it is time for a vet visit. Please
pounce over on Monday, June 17th, and leave a vote for Serj & Leah #196985 so they can proudly have
a shiny new COTD badge to display on their page.

While out and about the CC, please visit our June candidate for COTM, Dolly #222609 and leave a vote
for her collection so she can become our COTM for July. Dolly's stories are fascinating and exciting
and we are sure you will enjoy reading her postings.
Also please visit and leave a vote for our June King, King Whiskers #227256 while we journey with
him along the coast of beautiful California.
CC kitties and families, thank you for supporting our Special Recognition cats and our feline
community. As a token of our appreciation we are leaving a big tub of fresh catnip flavored popcorn
(not only is it good to eat, it is fun to play with) and grilled fish with tuna BBQ sauce on the side for
your enjoyment.

This is Sienna and family along with Linguini and family wishing you all a good
week. Oh! and don't forget to give big head bonks & purrs to all of the dads out there to let them
know they are loved.

Hello Penguin
How are you? I am ok. I would be better if Mommy would leave me alone!

You see, last Monday Mommy finally “caught” my urine sample & Nana delivered it to Dr. William (30 miles from here). I still have a severe UTI so I am taking a 2nd round of Clavamox.

Early last Tuesday morning (1 & 2 a.m.) I was barfy. After that, I only ate a little bit & I would not touch my lysine treats. I have done this before while on Clavamox. Mommy called Dr. William and he said that is fairly normal with Clavamox. He said to try a teaspoon of plain yogurt & let my tummy rest that day. Of course, I would not touch the yogurt!

Now I am eating well, running & playing & drinking water. I ♥ our mew stainless steel drinking fountain! I run when I see Mommy coming towards me – I know that nasty Clavamox is coming! Catch me, catch me if you can! Once Mommy does catch me, I am no problem. Some days Mommy has not had the heart to chase me twice. Yippeee!

Have a peaceful day.
Hugs,
Q MerryBelle

***Please Vote Jake 205858 Mon June 10***
Handsome Jake and his fursister Katie were found outside a local Pet Smart by his future mom. One look into his eyes, and she knew the only thing she could do was bring them both home. Now, Jake is her personal protecter making sure to thoroughly check out anyone who comes into his home before he lets them near her. He also loves hanging out in the window and chatting with the birds as well as wrestling with his daddy. What he does not like is having his sleep interrupted and his nails trimmed. Can't say that I blame him there, BOL. Please paw on by his page 205858 and leave him a vote for his very own COTD badge.
And please don't forget our current COTM candidate, the lovely Miss Dolly 222609. I know she would appreciate hearing from you as well as collecting your vote. Thanking you with purrs of catitude. Love, Queen Angel Callie & Sibs for the Catpaign & Mews room.

Please Vote Puzzle #256239 COTD on Monday June 3rd
Puzzle’s Mom went to County Services to meet this handsome boy. She sat in the kitty room for a very long time hoping to make a special connection with a kitty but sadly she didn't find what she was looking for, as she was about to leave they wheeled in a cart of kittens and there in the middle of them was Puzzle. He didn't take his eyes off of her so she plucked him out and he instantly gave her Nose kisses and of course she decided he would go home with her that day. He still blesses her with this loving gesture every day. Puzzle #256239 is very athletic and likes to jump long distances, although he is not always successful, Mom hears an occasional thud but he shakes it off and tries again!! He loves to hunt the birds, bugs & lizards outside the sliding glass door, occasionally one slips in and mom ruins his game by pitching the offender back out. He also has a stuffed buddy that he carries around with him, chattering away to it the whole time. He loves to play with his favorite toys Kickaroos, Cat Dancers & Charmers. He is very laid back and loves his fursibs ButtonBlue, Add-A-Line, Blondie & his best playing buddy Lolapalooza Lili, although he does get disgusted with her dunking all of his toys in the water fountain. Please stop and give Puzzle #256239 your vote so that he may show off a shiny new COTD Badge.

We would like to Thank Queen Spunky #161265 who gave a wonderful two months of cat shows and travels. Please Stop by and Visit King Whiskers #227256 at the castle, we look forward to hearing more from this kind and caring leader. Please stop by daily and give your support to DOLLY #222609 on her quest to become our July COTM.

Thank you for your continued support of the CMR Special Recognition Campaigns and our outstanding candidates! These campaigns are chosen for families who are trying to help other CC members by visiting and voting. In appreciation, we are leaving you a Catnip Chip Ice Cream Bar.

~Please Vote Leo & Mai Lin #245322 COTD Mon 5/27~
K Leo and his sibling Mai Lin are two of the most cherished members of our CC family. They are always on hand to congratulate kitties who are celebrating. They console those who are sad, and they support all of the catpaigns and special events here on CC. They are very active in the Mouse Hockey League, promoting good sportsmanship and enjoying friendly competition.

We all fondly remember Leo’s Reign as King, which he won on his old account, along with two COTD badges. Now he has joined his presence on CC with Mai Lin and the two of them are very good friends to all of us. It is most assuredly time for all of us to join together to honor these two wonderful kitties with their own shiny new COTD badge.

Also, please keep those COTM votes rolling for Whiskers (227256) so this handsome kitty, can proudly wear the June COTM crown as our King. Remember to let him know how much fun it’s been sharing his wonderful blogs about inspiring animals and his great health tips. (There have been some laughs and some tears, but his daily word for us has always been from the heart and always very interesting.) His catpaign has been inspiring, and we look forward to more insightful blogs from our very special friend Whiskers.
Please remember to stop in to visit our current COTM, Queen Spunky (161265) to let her know how much we’ve enjoyed her reign and her great excursions to some amazing places.

So, On behalf of the whole CMR team, this is Pete and the Girls, with Zaboo & NICE Crew, thanking you for your continued support of the CMR’s special recognition COTD campaigns & our remarkable COTM candidates. Hugs & purrs......

Please vote Rosie #252822 for COTD on Monday, 5/20
Recently a cat loving family had their red female cat, Angel Rhuby cross over the Rainbow Bridge. The cat mom of this family decided she would like to adopt another red female and as luck would have it, there was Rosie at the Petsmart Adoption Center. Rosie #252822 and her new mom bonded instantly and Rosie came to her new home that day. Rosie was at the shelter for over two months and was a bit wild. She didn't like being kept in a cage and would fight with the shelter workers when they tried to put her back in her cage. This was a big reason why Rosie #252822 wasn't adopted sooner; she was scared and the people looking at her were not patient with her until her new mom came along. Now at her new home Rosie #252822 is a cuddle cat with her daddy and loves to play with her brother Yogi. She gets along with the rest of her furry siblings and is a happy cat. Rosie #252822 will not eat dry food but she will eat any kind of wet food. She doesn't like dry treats either! Rosie loves to play with her furry mouse and the laser light. Rosie #252822 is happily spoiled now in her new home and we are very happy she has found a wonderful loving home. Rosie would be so honored to have a COTD badge to display on her page. Please visit Rosie #252822 on Monday, 5/20, and leave a vote for her so she can proudly have her own shiny COTD badge.
While making the rounds of visits on the CC, please go visit our May catpaigner for COTM, Whiskers #227256, and give his votey button a good whack so he can add your vote to his collection to become our King of June.. Also, please visit our Queen of May, Queen Spunky #161265, and letting her know we are all thinking of her and her family

Purrs,

~RAINBOW SCOOP-May 17, 2013~
From the cloud desk of Angel Sherman….Please vote ACOTD for ANGEL CRASH #248838! This sweet kitty joined the angels in February 2013 after losing his battle with complications that developed after being hit by a car the month before. He’d survived having both legs broken & surgery, but was unable to walk & had to drag himself to the litterbox. He was very brave & stayed a very sweet boy during all of the pain, infections, examinations & becoming a foster; but the angels knew that his life would not be a full one with his disabilities & thus called him home. Please pounce by to paw ANGEL CRASH #248838 a vote today so that his foster mom will have a fond memory to cherish & so that this sweet angel can earn the honor of making his star the most brilliant in the night sky tomorrow night.

Congratulations to our newest royal cat QUEEN SPUNKY #161265!! Your campaign about the details of cat shows was stupendous & we learned a lot about how things work for the fabulous show cats. We’re looking forward to some California sunshine during May as you reign from your house on the beach & look forward to hearing more letters to God from beloved pets. Have a great time as our new queen & thank you for an enchanting campaign month.

Congratulations to our new COTM nominee WHISKERS #227256!! We’ve been keeping a close watch on you sweet boy because you’re one of those special kitties that bring out the best in all the others whose lives you touch. We’re looking forward to seeing everything you have in store for us while you’re on the campaign trail. Good luck on your quest for the next crown!

Hello Penguin
What’s mew with you? I have WONDERFUL mews!!!! Dr. William called - my T4 by equilibrium dialysis thyroid test was NEGATIVE!!!! Thankfully that means I do not have hyperthyroidism.(I was diagnosed with early stage kidney disease last week.)

I have decided that I really do not like to eat the Prescription Diet k/d canned food. I will eat the k/d dry but not the canned food. So Mommy has been busy researching other canned foods with low protein (less than 10%) for me. The crazy woman is also studying our food labels. Do I read the labels on all that junk SHE eats???

Tonight is my last dose of that nasty Clavamox for the UTI. After I have been off it for four days, Mommy will take my urine sample to Dr. William to be rechecked. Hopefully the UTI will be all gone.

Mommy & Nana have a meeting scheduled with Dr. William @ 9 a.m. this Caturday as they have a growing list of questions & concerns. Poor Doc! You would think they love me or something!!!

Have a lovely day.
Hugs,
Q MerryBelle

They are a high energy bunch, though, and love racing through the house early morning before leading their mom to the kitchen. Their favorite foods are Purina One and party mix. Please paw on by their page 255012 and leave them a vote for their very own COTD badge. And don't forget about our current COTM candidate, the handsome Whiskers 227256.

Please paw by & meet this beautiful Champagne Point Tonkinese kitty. KAYLIN #251700 is not just a beautiful face she is also a CFA Champion & a Mom. She was hand picked for her new parents by her sister Wendy's breeder when she found out how sick Wendy was. But this sweet girl was already a mom so her new parents had to wait to bring her home. All of her kitties found their furever homes & then she had her Big Girl surgery. She was finally able to come to her new home in January. She wasn't sure if she wanted to stay at first, but her new parents gave her lots of love & support so we are happy to report she is settling in quite nicely. KAYLIN #251700 spends her days hanging out on Mom & Dads laps, playing with her toys, & napping in the sun. She also likes to tear through the apartment at top speed and has been known to do it in the middle of the night too. Her most favorite things to eat are the Roast Chicken that she shares with her parents, and her Blue food. She Loves to make new friends so won't you please stop and give KAYLIN #251700 your vote and make a new friend.

We give our Heartfelt Thanks To Queen Trixie #172636 who brought us a magnificent two months of wonderful animal stories, fun and zoo adventures as our April Queen. We congratulate Queen Spunky #161265 and invite you to visit her at the castle during the month of May.

~Queen Trixie's final day in 'office'~ April 30th
Hello & happy Tuesday every kitty! This is the last day that I’ll be meowing to you from the Queen’s chair so my big sis & head chef, Patches, has whipped up a banquet that will amaze your senses & tantalize your taste buds as my way of thanking all the sweet kitties that pounced by this month. At dawn tomorrow we’ll be vacating the cabin with our royal mementos & will say farewell to the beautiful wooded area that I've called my home for an entire month. All kitties that have visited are suggested to make sure everything they brought along has been reclaimed because once I pack away the royal gowns I’ll no longer be responsible for my actions & anything missing may never be seen by you again...MOL...but until then I must remain as dignified as possible & therefore I call my royal criers forth & hand them the final royal decree to announce:

♕ ♕ HEAR YE, HEAR YE ♕ ♕
~*~All CC kitties are hereby cordially invited to attend the coronation of Queen Spunky #161265 on Wednesday May 1st, 2013~*~

~*~ Time: 7am PT/10am ET on the CMR page #46883~*~

~*~This gala event will be held at the HONEYWELL CENTER in Wabash, IN in the Honeywell Room (see pics in my gallery) & will be followed by a roller skating party at their skating rink, where music, skates & the use of the party room are all included. All food will be provided by Honeywell’s famous catering service so come hungry & loosen up those leg muscles for a day of roller skating fun as I say Bon Voyage to royal duties!!~*~

*Formal dress is optional for the coronation ceremony but I highly recommend a change of comfortable clothes for skating if you plan to stay for the party afterward.*

//////////////////////////////////////////////////- ///////////////////

After the pawty is over it’s just a short 14 miles to my home where I’ll unpack & settle back into civilian life with happy, cherished memories to dream about while I take a short break from the blogging scene. Not to worry though because one of my magnificent siblings will pounce into action…& I’m sure they’ll exaggerate my antics like they usually do…MOL! Thank you for being so supportive sweet kitties & I’ll see you bright & early tomorrow morning!

Loving purrs,
Queen Trixie

Hope your day is snuggly safe too.

~Queen Trixie's Animal Tales~ April 23rd
<> TUESDAY, APRIL 23rd <> TEAM DOTD NEWS, PLEASE VOTE <*^*> SAMMIE 228644 <*^*>
WOW…what a surprise for mom to wake up & see our doggie as the DOTD runner for today! If you have a DC profile please paw her a vote & give her a big purr of thanks for working her paws to the bone last month during my catpaign. She spread the word with a happy wag of her tail & lots of slobbery kisses & I really appreciated all the added votes from our sweet doggie pals! She’s definitely deserving of her 2nd badge now that she’s all grown up (she got her first one shortly after joining DC) so I’m happily tooting a horn on her behalf today!

Thank you for pouncing by with your support of me this month! Can you believe the last full week of my reign is already here? I’ve been having so much fun with all of you at the Imperial Cabin this month & it’s great to see the tulips & other spring flowers blooming outside of it. I’ve still got some heroic & unusual CC furiends to tell you about though so hold on tight because my spinning isn’t over yet…MOL! Today I’m featuring a very special kitty in our community that many of you know so grab a plate full of scrumptious flavored muffins & catnip coffee prepared by our head chef Patches & aide-de-camp Angel Gracie & I’ll get started meowing about THOMAS #127574!

Thomas'Mom was volunteering at a local animal shelter when this little 3 week old kitten was brought in after having been badly abused by some children. The abuse broke his back and resulted in paralysis and no bowel / bladder control. The shelter kept him until he was 12 weeks old & healed an abscess, & because of his incontinence was bathed 2 x/day. They put a cut down litter box in his cage in hopes that he would use it but if he couldn't then he would have been deemed unadoptable and euthanized. Mom fostered him & then adopted him because he was not able to use a litter box, even though he enjoyed rooting around in the litter. Mom had owned a dachshund in the past that ruptured a disc and was paralyzed & a vet taught her how to take care of him, so she knew she could express Thomas' bowels and bladder & take care of him. Sweet Thomas is a true ambassador for the Prevention of Cruelty to animals & I hereby present him with the Queen’s Perseverance Medal for being able to overcome hardships that no baby kitty should ever have to endure! His life is now filled with the love & attention he deserved from the start & is the purrfect ambassador to spread the word because of his purrsonal experience. Thank you Thomas & mom for sharing your story!
Have a terrific Tuesday everyone & I’ll meow at you again on Thursday!

Sweet purrs & calico kisses,
Queen Trixie

~Queen Trixie's Tales~ Thursday April 18th
Our thoughts & prayers go out to all the people in West, Texas as an explosion at a fertilizer plant devastated the area around it at about 8 pm last night. Over 160 are injured, at least 3 firefighters are missing & several workers & local residents have already lost their lives in the horrific explosion that registered 2.1 on the Richter scale! Please keep this community in your thoughts & prayers as they continue their search for the missing & try to recover from the shock.
I also send out a prayer request for the people of Boston who are still trying to understand why bombs were set off at the end of their world famous marathon on Monday. Law enforcement is working around the clock to find the cowards that did this & our prayers are also with them for their diligence & determination to bring them to justice!

It’s going to be another stormy day at the Imperial Cabin later today but right now you couldn’t tell it. The sun is shining & we have a temp of 65 BUT the wind is wickedly strong & we're under a tornado watch!! All cabin visitors are requested to stay inside to avoid any falling limbs/branches! Since it’s too windy to be outside safely I’m going to meow to you about another one of our fabulous CC friends. Grab a spot on the plush carpet or one of the luxurious cat beds around the throne room, grab some snacks from the buffet table (prepared by our head chef Patches & top aide-de-camp Gracie) & turn your attention to today’s tale about CHARLOTTE #196844!
The family had an attempted break-in at their house the last week of January. Everyone was asleep when Charlotte jumped up on her mom at about 4:30am meowing very loudly. Mom heard banging & quickly checked to see if her husband was ok since he has medical problems. Nothing wrong there, but the banging continued so she looked out the bathroom window & was shocked to see a man knocking over the garbage cans. She turned on the outside lights, but he didn’t leave, instead he moved to the back door, which leads into the mud room, & started banging on that door. She couldn’t imagine what his intention was & became fearful. The alarm was on at the house so she called 911 & stayed on the line with the dispatcher while he continued banging on the door. Then he managed to push the top window out of the door & entered the mud room by finding the locks & unlocking the door, where he then proceeded to bang on the kitchen door. Just in the nick of time the police arrived at the back of the house & took him down! It turned out that the man was extremely intoxicated & lost but it was a very frightening experience for Charlotte & her mom (luckily dad slept through it) & to this day Charlotte will not go into the mud room, which she previously enjoyed almost daily for a sunbath. I hereby present Charlotte with the Golden Catnip Custer of Heroism for alerting her mom to the danger & thank her for sharing her story.

Loving purrs,
Queen Trixie

~Meows from Queen Trixie~
Today is a sad day in our nation as we have once again been attacked! I ask that everyone please observe a moment of silence for those that have lost their lives & to send prayers of healing to those that were injured during the terrible terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon yesterday. Gentle hugs & prayers go out to all the people of Boston as they endure the hardships & grief of this unprovoked & senseless attack.
Since this is a very downhearted time for many people in our nation I’d like to try to cheer you up with a couple of heroic doggy tales. The first one is from one of the dogs on DC & the other one is from one of our own precious feline families.

MAX PINKOWITZ is a happy 10 year old doggies that was very happy to find his forever home when he was 2. His mom takes him for walks a lot & gets to meet a lot of his doggie friends. Up their street live 2 very aggressive chi pups that weigh about 3 pounds each, which his mom calls ‘killer chis’. If they’re out with their mom they come running toward the street barking like crazy. Last year they were playing outside with their mom when Max & his mom were walking up the street. Max & his mom saw a car coming & then mom was stunned by what happened next! Max went toward the ‘killer’ Chis and blocked them from running into the street!! Mommy was so proud of him because sweet Max saved the chi doggies that day by preventing them from being hit I hereby present Max with the Queen’s Medal of Gallantry for keeping his fellow canines safe from harm.

This one is from EDDIE #153057. Once a few years ago when mom was on vacation, she left her motel room to walk about a 1/2 mile to a restaurant. The motel had a porch and when mom went out on the porch to leave she saw a large dog and wondered where he came from but took off as planned. She was curious as the dog followed & on the way they passed a field where there was a very scary man walking toward them. Mom felt safer with that dog right near her & the dog escorted mom to the restaurant then left. Luckily Mom’s walk back was uneventful so mom thinks that God sent along an angel dog that night to keep her safe & is grateful for God's care.
We’ll never know this special dog’s name but have to agree that this special canine was indeed a guardian angel sent down to protect mom so that she wouldn’t be harmed by the stranger that thought about approaching her.

Thank you for sharing your special stories with me Max & Eddie & thanks to all of you that pounce by to visit me at the Imperial Cabin. I’ll be back again on Thursday to visit you.

Loving purrs & a chicken strip vote,
Queen Trixie

Please vote Cassandra #205806 for COTD-Mon Apr 15
The CMR crew is pleased to introduce to you another Special Recognition Cat: Cassandra #205806 for COTD. We are pawing and pouncing over to ask you to please vote for Cassandra for COTD on Monday, 4/15 (otherwise known as Tax Day in the human's world).

Cassandra's full name is Cassandra Lee Brown, which to us sounds like a good name. She was named Cassandra after a book her mommy read about a beautiful lady who had golden green eyes and long black hair. Yes, we would say this suits Cassandra #205806 to a "t". Cassandra also is a princess around her home. She is pampered and loves attention especially from her human daddy. Cassandra #205806 is dainty and little, weighing in at only six pounds and is the twin to her brother Montgomery George Brown. They were lucky kitties and both were adopted together into their forever home. When the mood strikes her, Cassandra #205806 can hide in the smallest of places and will close the cupboard door behind her leaving it almost impossible to locate her. Cassandra likes hamburgers from Burger King, cheese and hot dogs. She hates being interrupted from her naps and being ignored by her daddy. Please paw over to visit this sweetheart of a cat, Cassandra #205806 and leave a vote for her so she can proudly display a COTD badge to all who visit her.

While you are on the CC, please paw a vote for our newest campaigner for COTM, Spunky #161265 who is introducing us all to her adventures and advise about cat shows and the expectations from the cats and the judges. Please continue to visit our COTM, Queen Trixie #172636 who is continuing to lead us on zoo tours across the world and keeping us informed of the plight of endangered animals.

This is Sienna and family along with Linguini and family leaving you fresh roasted spring lamb with lots of catnip sauce and homemade oatmeal cookies for desert, thanking you all for continuing to support our candidates for COTD. Sending purrs and wishing you and your families peace and good health.

~Queen Trixie's Tales~ Sunday April 14th
WAKE UP KITTIES!! It’s time to get cleaned up so we can head to the OKLAHOMA CITY ZOO!! (http://www.okczoo.com) I hope all of you slept well. I know I did even though I’m not used to the noise of a big city. I see that some of you have already bought souvenirs so I hope you brought a large enough bag to carry home those Native American novelties that seemed so popular…MOL! As we’re walking to the zoo I’ll tell you a little about it so you can get right to checking out all of the fabulous habitats.

The Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden is a zoo and botanical garden located in Oklahoma City's Adventure District in northeast Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The zoo covers 119 acres and is home to more than 1,800 animals. In 1902, the Zoo received its first donated animal and opened as a small menagerie. On Labor Day 1903, the Zoo had a formal dedication at Wheeler Park & celebrates 1904 as the Zoo's first full year of business. It is a fully accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and the American Association of Museums as both a living museum and a botanical garden. The Zoo participates in numerous cooperative Species Survival Plan projects and is dedicated to the conservation of rare and endangered wildlife. Awards include being named the Third Best Zoo for kids in the nation in May 2004 by Child magazine after an extensive survey of over 150 zoos belonging to the AZA. In November 2005, the Zoo was named one of five finalists in Microsoft's "America's Favorite Zoo" contest. In 2012, the Zoo was voted the Third Best Zoo in the nation by 10Best.com.

Now some of you may be wondering why I planned this on Sunday instead of our usual Saturday trip so now it’s time to spring the surprise. Today is the 2nd birthday of MALEE the baby elephant & the zoo is having a big bash in her honor from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. with cake for thousands, party favors for guests and our elephants, and more! The first 5,000 guests will receive a pair of commemorative birthday elephant ears! The celebration kicks off at 1 p.m. in the Zoo’s Global Plaza with free giveaways and delicious treats provided by local bakeries. At 2:15 p.m. (a special time just for the birthday girl,) guests will want a seat at the free daily elephant presentation in the Elephant Habitat’s pavilion as the party continues. Join Zoo staff and News9’s Bobbie Miller in singing “Happy Birthday” to Malee and watch as she blows out the candle on her own cupcake custom made by Johnnies Sweet Creations! After the presentation, watch as all the Zoo’s Asian elephants including adult females Asha, Malee’s mom, Chandra and bull, Rex celebrate with specially made, Zoo-approved cakes courtesy of Johnnies Sweet Creations, in their yards. Pics of the zoo entrance & Malee’s birth announcement are in my gallery!

Now that you know let’s go pawty & see if we can get those elephant ears they’re giving away…MOL! Have a pawsome day dear furiends!

Happy purrs & a catnip filled vote,
Queen Trixie

Please vote for Dixie 230112 Monday April 8
Cute as a button Dixie was dropped off at her future home where she now happily resides with her humans and fursiblings. She has learned how to love from them and quite often you can find her hanging out on her mom or grandmom's lap. She doesn't have any pet peeves but she loves jumping into open drawers. Isn't that a great trick? Her motto is an important one: "Spay and neuter your pets." I couldn't agree more. Please paw on by her page 230112 and leave her a vote for her very own COTD badge. And while you are in a voting mood, don't forget our current COTM candidate, the adorable Miss Spunky 161215. I know both will appreciate your visit.

PLEASE VOTE FOR FANG & DROOLER #236550 APRIL 1st
Dear CC Furiends! You are cordially invited to come and meet Fang & Drooler #236550 on Monday, April 1st! These precious kitties are so thankful to have a loving family after they were abandoned when their previous owners moved away. Their new family, who are long time loyal members of CC, realized that Fang & Drooler faced an uncertain future because of their advanced age and medical conditions; so they decided to take them in and try to find them another home. Fang & Drooler #236550 have now taken their place among the other rescues in the family! They love to hang out with mom, enjoy spending time in their beds or on the couch, & enjoy playtime outside! They both meow their displeasure with car rides, strangers, vacuums, & trash trucks; Fang, in particular, has an aversion to feathers, preferring to play only with a shoelace! These sweet kitties are also dealing with an Auto Immune disorder: Drooler has had 7 teeth removed as a result; Fang suffers from mouth and paw ulcers, and is not too happy that he has to take medications for the ulcers, insulin to treat Diabetes, stress, & will start meds for Hyperthyroidism. Along with Luvbug, Lil Jag, Buster, Smudge, & Angels Kuce, Sphinx, & Dancing Bear, Fang & Drooler #236550 have been given a chance to live with this wonderful family, who are well known to everyone for the love and compassion they have for homeless and abandoned cats! Fang & Drooler #236550 crave love and attention & will be overjoyed to have furiends come by and visit! We hope you will leave a vote so they can have the honor of winning their very own COTD award!

Please Vote Neelix (245612) * COTD * Mon. March 25
Neelix is a very handsome seven year old tabby who was rescued along with his brother when he was a tiny kitten abandoned in a parking lot. Since that tiny kitten was adopted by his loving pawrents he has trained them to be excellent staff for himself and his brothers. Regarding his brothers, Hedley and Jakar, the three of them comprise the famous (or perhaps infamous) “pawty animals”. These boys are always the life of any party, they create lots of fun at every MHL Mouse Hockey Game, and they are always the first to lend a paw on any project that benefits the CC community. They’re always there to offer comfort to the sad, good thoughts and healing wishes to the sick and congratulations to those who are celebrating. Neelix and his family always support the COTD and COTM candidates. They are a credit to the CC community!
Neelix is an outstanding member of our CC family, and since both of his brothers already have their very own COTD badges, it seems that it is time for Neelix to have one of his own. Won’t you please drop by and give this handsome guy a vote, on Monday so he can have the badge he so much deserves.
Just a reminder, please keep those COTM votes rolling for Trixie (172636) so this Beautiful and talented Kitty, can wear the March COTM crown as our Queen. Remember to let her know how much fun it’s been sharing her wonderful blogs about Zoos, amazing heroic animals and unusual animal pals. Also, please remember to stop in to visit our current COTM, Queen Josie Mae (193862), Please be sure to let her know much we appreciated her homespun hillbilly wisdom, on superstitions and first aid, but especially let her know how much we appreciate her great kindness and empathy for those who are ill, or in mourning.
Finally, on behalf of the whole CMR team, this is Pete and the Girls, and Princess and Sib's, thanking you for your continued support of the CMR’s special recognition COTD campaigns & our remarkable COTM candidates.
