About Me

Active within 1 Day

Hi! My name is Mischief - Praying for the sick and the lost!

I am Domestic Longhair from Crossville, TN

Nicknames: Mishy, Pretty Girl, Piggy

Age: 3 years old

Gender: F

Coat: long haired

Education: Mischief has begun visiting the local nursing home as a therapy cat. She is not certified, yet, but it's not required there. Everyone loves her!

Got her first COTD/CROTD badges on 8/7/12

She became Duchess of Dashingness by winning the ladies competition of the Magnificent Tail Contest on 8/11/12.

My favorite tricks and treats are: She can jump really high when going after Da Bird, or a fly! and She will eat Temptations once in awhile, but she's not excited about treats. Once in awhile, she'll eat Friskies Party Mix out of my hand.

Where I hang out: She loves to sit on either of the towers, or on the window perch. She also like to sit in my bedroom window and watch the birds in the trees.

My favorite grubs: She loves any and all wet food, to the point that she tries to steal everyone elses.

My pet peeves: Not being able to go outside without a harness and leash.
Not being allowed to eat my fursibs food, cuz I want it all!

What I love about my owners: She and Dad made me a part of the family and I have a bigger place to roam around in. I also have many windows to look out of and see all the birds and other critters. They found a good place for my littermates to go.

My cat hobbies: Eat! Run through the house and play with Da Bird and other string or wand toys and sometimes my fursibs. Mom now takes me out in the front yard in the morning, so I can smell the grass, maybe eat a blade or two and chase bugs! Eat!

Pet motto: She doesn't have one, yet.

How We Met

A family was evicted from the mobile home park next door and they had to leave 5 cats behind. My husband and I took care of them for 3 days until animal control could come and collect them. We fell in love with Mischief and brought her home. The others went to an organization called A.A.R.F. (All About Rescue and Fixin') where they will be cared for until homes are found for them. They are a no-kill organization. We learned just this week (July, 2012) that all of her siblings have been adopted!

Hi Mischief & family!
We came by to say good-bye until April 24th. (Sniff!) My Mom was packing, carefully folding her clothes and putting them in her suitcase while Callie & I watched. Well, Mom went upstairs, leaving her suitcase open on the floor. Let me just say it was Callie’s idea, but you guessed it - we both hopped right in and tried to help by fluffing her clothes! When Mom saw us, she let out a yelp that scared us, so we jumped out wondering what was wrong. No outfit is complete without cat hair, right? MOL! Oh oh, I better run. I see the lint roller coming out!
-----
We just learned that our very dear furiend Wicket (154851) became an angel. We mourn the loss of such a very brave soul. He fought so hard to stay with his family here on earth, but I guess God decided it was best for him to come back home to Heaven. Our hearts are very sad and heavy. It helps to have our CC furiends to share the sad times, as well as the happy ones. God bless Angel Wicket and may God bring comfort to Mom Lynn and her precious furbabies, K. SpongeBob and Baby.

I left a vote with purrs & hugs. Meow at you soon. We are always praying for our dear furiends and their families in need. We hope your pawrents are doing better each day. Give them hugs for us sweetie. Your family is always in our prayers dear furiend.

“Spring is in the air because Easter is here
Dark days of winter are gone and summer is near
So here are wishes for a summer that is sunny
I have ordered it just for you from the Easter bunny!”

Have A HAPPY EASTER! ❀

Hi Mischief & family!
It’s a nice sunny day, but my Mom is spoiling it with the awful noise from the vacuum monster. Mom leaves on her trip to GM’s house early Saturday, so Callie and I have been following her around, watching her pack & clean the house. We all know something is going on!

We hope your Mom and Dad are doing better today. Give them big hugs for us and let them know you are all in our prayers dear furiend.

Dish Bottom Phobia =^.^=
~~~~~
I know I just ate some ten minutes ago,
But I felt in the mood for a snack
And, lo and behold, when I looked in my dish,
I saw the dish bottom look back.
See? Come and see if I'm telling the truth!
Oh. this has upset me severely!
Yes I know there's kibble on that side and this,
But I can see dish-bottom clearly!

I stared in the dish and I measured the place
That was empty, and let out a cry -
What if I finished this part and that part?
It would all be dish-bottom! I'd die!
How can you cruelly ignore my complaint?
The kibble was low, and you knew it!
You're acting as if it was piled to the rim
While I can see dish-bottom through it!

I nibbled some here and I nibbled some there
And I dropped one or two, being furious,
But nothing improved in this tragic affair,
The state of my dish is so serious!
No kidding! Oh, please come and see the bare spot
On the dish bottom, do as I wish!
Then I guess you don't care if I'm starving or not,
So I'll eat from the other cat's dish.

Hi Mischief & family!
This morning at 1:30 a.m. my Mom got up to watch the total lunar eclipse or “Blood Moon” as it was called. Mom was able to watch it from our backyard, so she let Callie and me out to watch it too. We were so excited about going outside in the middle of the night, we just ran around the deck like crazed kitties and forgot to look up into the sky. MOL! Whitey and Orangie didn’t even budge out of bed. They’re starting to keep regular hours now!

We hope your Dad is feeling a little better each day and we're praying your sweet Mom can get rid of her cough soon. Hopefully the weather will start to warm up for you and stay warm! Give your pawrents warm hugs for us. We always have you kitties and the entire family in our thoughts and prayers.

My Kitten Won’t Stop Talking =^.^=
~~~~~
My kitten won't stop talking.
She just prattles night and day.
She walks around repeating
nearly everything I say.

My kitten never says, "Meow."
She never even purrs.
She mimics me instead
in that annoying voice of hers.

She waits for me to speak,
and then she copies every word,
or begs me for a cracker,
or says, "I'm a pretty bird."

I'm not sure what to do, and so
I simply grin and bear it.
She's been this way since yesterday;
that's when she ate my parrot.

--Kenn Nesbitt

A very chilly & windy day...
I couldn't believe it when I peeked out the window this morning & saw snow! It's only a dusting but it won't be disappearing until at least tomorrow unless the sun comes out. SIGH...I was hoping we could send Sammie dog outside to romp today because she's e-collar (cone) free after having her stitches removed this morning. Mom said she was shaking like a leaf with nervousness as soon as they turned into their parking area...& it got worse as soon as she walked into the lobby. She immediately started barking but listened & stopped when mom told her to. She crammed herself against mom's legs as they waited in the exam room & was shaking badly because she was scared. When the tech walked in she started barking & growling so mom had them get her a muzzle to make sure she didn't snap at anyone out of fear (Sammie is actually a coward at heart but plays big bad...MOL). She didn't utter any more growls after mom put the muzzle on so removing the sutures went well with mom holding her front legs up so the tech could reach her tummy. As soon as they got home mom released her from 'the cone of shame' so now she's happily cleaning all those places she couldn't reach with it on & will fall asleep soon.

All of the NICE Girls are doing fine but I'm a bit annoyed with Patches right now. I think she overindulged inhaling catnip fumes from my bat because she pounced on me & wanted to wrestle. Patches never does that so it took me by surprise! I decided to play with Monkey & Fluffinella in the other room for a while until she either settled down or fell asleep...MOL! You probably thought it was crazy enough around her with a calico cyclone, a white tornado & a spunky monkey but when you mix in a rampaging tortie it gets really wild...MOL!
Well I've got to get pouncing so I can see why Monkey & Fluffers got so quiet when I left them in the family room. I also need to remind mom to make us an Easter frame. It's SO hard to get good help these days...MOL!

Sweet purrs & big hugs,

Hi Mischief & family!
Just pawing by to say meow and share a cute story with you. We all catnapped in the sunshine today. We had some more Blue Jays in our backyard this morning, but I let them know who is boss around here. (If they chase me, I run for the kitty screen door. Mom keeps the flap door open for us when we're outside!)

We hope you had a nice Monday. We're glad you Dad is feeling better, but don't let him overdo it. He doesn't want a relapse. Yes, my Mom knows how annoying and tiring a lingering cough can be. We have your sweet Mom and Dad in our prayers. Maybe your Mom needs to see a doctor. I know it's probably the last thing she wants. Give her a warm hug for us. Your extreme weather doesn't help either!

"I Rescued A Human Today!"
~~~~~
Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her.

I swished my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn’t be afraid.
As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage.
I didn’t want her to know my cage hadn’t been cleaned today.
Sometimes the overworked shelter keepers get too busy and I didn’t want her to think poorly of them.

As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn’t feel sad about my past.
I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone’s life.

She got down on her knees and made little kitty sounds at me.
I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her.
Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship.
A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.

Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms.

I would promise to keep her safe.
I would promise to always be by her side.
I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.

I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor.
So many more are out there who haven’t walked the corridors.
So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.

I rescued a human today!

Hi Mischief & family!
We sure hope your Dad stays home from work tomorrow. He needs rest to get better. We'll have him and your dear Mom in our prayers. We hope her cough gets away and doesn't get too bad. It must be pretty tough to have an eye appointment when you don't feel well. When it rains, it really pours sometimes! Give your family big hugs for us sweet furiend.

We hope you all had a relaxing Sunday. Callie and I have been sitting in the backyard enjoying the sun. Whitey & Orangie always enjoy catnapping in their window beds during the day now. It was a nice 73 degrees today. Mom spent the day cleaning, but thankfully she didn’t drag the ole vacuum monster out to torment us.

The Miracle Of Furiendship =^.^=
~~~~~
There is a miracle called Furiendship
that dwells within the heart
and you don't know how it happens
or when it even starts.

But the happiness it brings you
always gives a special lift
and you realize that Furiendship
is God's most precious gift.

Hi Mischief & family!
I have a happy story I want to share today. Last night when Mom was filling the outside cat feeders with dry food, a small black cat was under her car softly mewing. Mom was able to coax him out from under the car with a bowl of wet food and a saucer of milk. Mom sat down talking to him while he ate. He finished eating and came over to rub against Mom’s legs. He didn’t have a collar, but was clearly domesticated. Mom told Dad, if that cat is still in yard before we go to bed, I’m going to try to grab him and take him to our vet in the morning to see if he has a microchip.

He was still hanging around, so Mom put him in the big dog carrier she used to trap Whitey & Orangie. He was small, maybe 7 pounds, solid black, short haired and looked like a big kitten. He spent the night in our kitchen, crying for a while, then finally falling asleep. The good news is he did have a microchip! His name is Ray Ray, one year old and had been missing since April 2. The owners came to get him, overjoyed someone had found their furbaby. Ray Ray had traveled over seven miles from his home. A very happy ending! Needless to say, Dad was very happy. He didn’t want to have a new cat in the house while Mom is gone next week. MOL!

My Dad was very quiet around here today while Mom was trying to figure out to do with Ray Ray, but he never said Mom couldn't keep the little guy. I heard a sigh of relief from Dad when Mom called him from the vet to let him know Ray Ray had a home. Whew!

I left a vote with warm hugs and soft purrs. Please let you Mom and Dad know they are in our prayers. Give them big hugs for us. Take good care of them. No need to blog back sweetie. Let your sweet mom rest!

LITTLE GHOST CAT =^.^=

“Little Ghost cat,
Your footsteps pit-pat
In the hallway of my mind
The kiss of air, whisper-soft purr;
I hear the echoes of your purr;
See your pouncing shadow everywhere....
And smile through my tears.“

Hi Mischief & family!
Don't worry about coming to visit us dear furiend. You kitties just take good care of your Mom and Dad. We hope your Dad's chest x-ray goes well and we hope the doctor's can help your Mom feel better. We're praying it's nothing serious for both of them. Give them warm hugs for us.

We're glad to hear you finally have sunny weather and Shorty is coming back. Yippee! Now if only BC would mellow out a little! He reminds me a lot of my sister Callie. She is such a grouch. MOL!(I hope she didn't hear that!) Take care of yourself too sweet furiend. Your pawrents need you kitties.

Mom made another trip to Petco today to stock up on treats for us while she is gone to San Diego to visit GM next week. Mom has reminders for Dad posted in the house - to feed us, clean the litter boxes and to never shut a closet door. Wait, what about the treats? Can’t forget that! MOL! I hope you’re enjoying “National Pet’s Day”. CATS RULE!

ONE BY ONE =^.^=
~~~~~
One by one, they file past my cage
Too old, too worn, too broken, no way
Way past his time, he can't run and play
Then they shake their heads slowly and go
on their way

A little old man, arthritic and sore
It seems I am not wanted anymore
I once had a home, I once had a bed
A place that was warm, and where I was fed

Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail
Who wants a cat so old and so frail?
My family decided I didn't belong
I got in their way; my attitude was wrong

Whatever excuse they made in their head
Can't justify how they left me for dead
Now I sit in this cage, where day after day
The younger cats all get adopted away

When I had almost come to the end of my rope
You saw my face, and I finally had hope
You saw through the grey and the legs bent with age
And felt that I still had life beyond this cage

You took me home, gave me food an a bed
And shared your own pillow with my poor tired head
We snuggle and play and you talk to me low
You love me so dearly, you want me to know

I may have lived most of my life with another
But you outshine them with a love so much stronger
And I promise to return all the love I can give
To you, my dear person, as long as I live

I may be with you for a week or for years
We will share many smiles, you will no doubt shed tears
And when the time comes that God deems I must leave
I know you will cry and your heart it will grieve

And when I arrive at the Bridge all brand new
My thoughts and my heart will still be with you
And I will brag to all that will hear
Of the person who made my last days oh, so dear.

Hi Mischief
Today is National Pet Day. I sure hope that Mommy will get me a pet. Maybe a bunny. Or maybe one of those mew hexbug Aquabots. Have you seen those? They are little robotic fish & sharks that run on batteries & really do swim in water. (They are real kid’s toys.) Mommy & Nana are going shopping tomorrow so hopefully they will get me a pet.

We hope that both your Mom & Dad are feeling better now.

Happy National Pet Day!
Purrs to you,
K Casper Todd

The birds are singing...
& mom has the windows open a crack so we can listen to them...woohoo! Fluffinella is hogging the best viewing spot right now but I'm patiently (if you can believe that...MOL) waiting my turn. All of us, except Patches who was napping, watched mom walking Sammie earlier by sitting on the arm of the love-seat in the master bedroom. Teehee...that's about the only time she could possibly catch us all together to get a picture so it's really fun to tease her through the window! Isn't it great to have 3 really ornery kitties mom? MOL!!

Well it looks like another purrfect spring day outside & mom wants to get out there to do some work so will make this short so she can get busy. We'll be back next week to meow. Have a fabulous weekend!!

Hi Mischief & family!
We were so happy to read the good news on CMR about your Dad! Thank goodness the stronger antibiotic is working! Whew! Now if the doctor can just figure out how to make your Mom feel better too. (Sooner, rather than later!) My Mom knows how frustrating and agonizing it can be with all the doctor appointments, especially when you don't feel good! We have your pawrents in our thoughts and prayers dear furiend. Give everyone hugs for us. We'll check back on CMR tomorrow. Make sure your Mom and Dad get lots of rest!

There is not much to report here today. My Mom is housecleaning again (Ugh!), but she did let Callie and me help fold the laundry. Callie loves lying in a basket of warm sheets!

My Mom is getting ready for another trip to visit GM in San Diego. Dad gets a week off for Easter vacation, so he’ll be home to take care of us. Of course, I’ll be here to help. Mom will be gone April 19th through April 23rd. We’ll have our paws crossed that CC will still be up and running when she gets back. GM is fine...just feeling a little under the weather (GM is 85 yrs young), so Mom thought she should take the opportunity to visit her. Maybe this will give Dad a chance to bond with Whitey & Orangie. (Or not!)

I left a vote with purrs, hugs and a poem to make you smile. Our furiends and their families in need are always in our prayers.

WHAT YOUR CAT MIGHT BE THINKING =^.^=
~~~~~
“I'm the center of the universe.
I'm all-out royalty.
There really isn't anyone
who's near as good as me.

And everything that's ever done
is done just for my bidding.
And I shall banish anyone
I do not deem befitting.

Laps were made to be my throne,
and hands were made to pet me.
And anything I want to do,
of course, you have to let me.

And if you open up a book,
then that's to lay my head on.
And if you put your sweater down,
well, that's for me to shed on.

And if you plant a pretty plant,
well, that's for me to chew.
And if you bring a puppy home,
well, that's the end of you.”

Hi Mischief & family!
You look so beautiful in your Easter Blessing profile picture. The butterfly frame is almost as pretty as you dear furiend. We have your Mom and Dad in our prayers. We hope the injections your Dad got for his pneumonia are working and help him to feel a little bit better. We sure hope your Mom gets an answer from the insurance company soon. We pray she isn't in too much pain. Give them both warm hugs for us sweetie. We'll check back on you tomorrow. We read the CMR updates, so no need to blog back! Just rest, rest, rest!

It’s not as hot as yesterday. It’s a nice 76 degrees here today with clear blue skies, perfect for catnapping in the back yard. Whitey and Orangie came downstairs this morning to look around. They both jumped into one of the bay windows, watching the birdies in the front yard where Mom puts birdseed. My sister Callie was in the other bay window (where she sleeps now), but she just kept growling until Whitey & Orangie got the hint and ran back upstairs. Callie just isn’t ready to make furiends yet. (Sigh!)

My Mom got her car back last night, but on the drive back home she heard an odd noise coming from the steering wheel column. She took the car back this morning, not wanting to break down again, but it was an easy fix. The power steering fluid in the car was bone dry. If GP was still alive, he would be scolding Mom. GP was a stickler for car maintenance. Mom & Dad aren’t too bright in that department and I can’t be expected to do everything around here, can I?! MOL!

I left a vote with purrs and hugs. We hope you’re having a happy day. Our thoughts and prayers go out to our furiends and their families in need.

Angel Cats =^.^=
~~~~~
"Angel cats are just pretend
Just sorrows that will never mend"
But if I believe that, I'm untrue
To someone who loved me and you.
For I have felt my cat's sweet weight
As she cuddles into bed so late
And heard her purrs, and felt her sigh
Mend my grief: sweet lullaby.

Faulty vision? I think not!
An angel cat, off like a shot
For that was how she ran while here:
Now plain sight, now disappear.
Angel cats are surely real
They stay in touch to help us heal
Their fur dries tears that will not dry
And as we mend, our spirits fly.

Dear Mischief and family
Oh no! We are so sorry to hear your Dad has a touch of pneumonia. Thank goodness he went to the doctor and thank God your dear Mom was with him. At least the doctor was able to x-ray your Mom too. Waiting on insurance companies can be so exasperating! We hope your sweet Mom isn't in too much pain while she has to wait. We'll be praying for your pawrents dear furiend. Try to be strong for them sweetie and give them lots of pawsitive purrs. I know you and your fursibs will look after them.

I better you let you get back to nursing. A kitty's work is never done but always appreciated! We'll keep checking back on CMR Mews Room for updates. Make sure you and your fursibs get lots of rest too. We love you and your family!

My Mom’s car is at the mechanics today having a broken fuel pump fixed. She’s hoping to get it back today. Whitey and Orangie are upstairs cat napping in the window. When they get too hot, they roll over onto the bed. Mom is happy to see them finally settling in. Neither of them come downstairs much, except in the middle of the night. They’re both unsure of my sister Callie and my Dad. Mom put a small planter with cat grass for them upstairs. Whitey and Orangie seem to prefer munching on catnip. Mom gives them a small dish with catnip once a day. They don’t eat all of it. They like to roll around in it and make a mess. Mom has her trusty dustbuster upstairs for those times. MOL!

You talk to me as if I'm three,
Coo and pinch my cheeks.
I'm not three, I'm ten,
a WOMAN in kitty years!
Must you scream,"NO NO Kitty,"
as if I'm deaf?
I'm not deaf,
I have you on IGNORE!

You insist that I love tuna,
faithfully fill my dish.
I don't like tuna,
come on where's the BEEF?

Seems you buy the silliest toys,
mice, feathers and such.
Then wonder why I shred the couch,
did ya think I might be BORED!!!

Why do you squeal in that high pitched voice,
"Here kitty kitty kitty?"
I've never come before,
I'm NOT coming this time!

Hi Mischief & family!
We’re pawing by very late for us today. My Mom’s car broke down today while she was out running errands. She had to wait two long hours for a tow truck. It was a crazy Monday for all of us.

Oh no! Your poor Dad is getting a cold again?! Just what he doesn't need with his hurt elbow on top of everything! Boy, when it rains, it really pours.

Hi Mischief & family!
No need to blog back sweet furiend. We hope your pawrents are having fun with the family. We hope your Dad's elbow is feeling better too. You are all always in our prayers!

Today was sunny and warm, just perfect. Callie and I were catnapping in our cat beds in the backyard under the awning. A big blue jay was very brave, hopping around the deck right in front of us, practically asking to be eaten. Mom saw us chattering at the bird, trying to hypnotize it. So what did that mean ole Mom do? Yep, she scared the birdie away. No fun around here. MOL! I hope your day was better!

Cats in Every Space =^.^=
~~~~~
I live a very simple life
with cats in every space
But when I got to bed at night
they sleep upon my face

Now to live without the luxury
of cats in every space
Would be to live a sorry life
in a very sorry place.

I've never been without a cat
and this I can uphold
I'll have a cat in every space
Until I'm gray and old.

For every fool should be aware
that cats are complex creatures
they live about in every space
And give the house its features.

Now take my house away from me
and place me in a tent
I'll have a cat in every space
And still I'll be content.

Hi Mischief & family!
Saturday is our favorite day around here because it’s shopping day for Mom and that means a stop at Petco! I gave Mom our list for the week. Let’s see if she actually reads it. MOL!

We hope your Mom and Dad have a wonderful visit with their family. You and your family are always in our prayers too sweetie!

SUM OF ALL PURRS =^.^=
~~~~~
“I knew the day she came to stay
That she was quite unique.
You see, Cats come with warnings —
They’re a challenge, so to speak.

They’ll try your patience —
They’ll jump too high; they abound with energy.
They’ll keep you on your tippee toes,
And do just what they please!

Broken vases, broken plaques —
Nothing is off limits.
The higher is the better,
And the pinnacle a pittance.

Stair rails, plate rails —
All there for them to climb.
Anything you wish preserved
Becomes the brunt of kitty crime.

Luxuriant tail swishing in and out,
Tip curling back and forth.
Volcanic eyes flash electric gaze,
Invisible foes to thwart.

But! All is forgiven, for, oh! What sweetness —
Inherent within one form….
Only God above could wrap such love
In resplendent fur so soft, so warm.”

Hi Mischief & family!
It wasn’t supposed to rain here today, but the news got that wrong. It has been pouring off and on all morning. The sun started peeking out for a while, so Mom let me outside because I was meowing at the door. Then Mom went about her cleaning. She finally noticed it was raining hard. Callie had come inside, but I was stuck in the backyard under the back awning. Mom yelled at me to come in, but I didn’t want to get wet, so I sat there and stared at her. She finally came out and we both got drenched. MOL! Whitey & Orangie were watching from the window upstairs, probably laughing.

We hope your Dad is feeling better. Hopefully your pawrents can get some rest this weekend with their kitties. Give them big hugs for us. We always have your family in our prayers.

I left a vote with warm hugs and purrs. We hope you all have a great Friday and stay warm!

I'm Only Human
~~~~~
Because I'm only human,
it's sometimes hard to be
the wise, all knowing creature
that my cat expects of me.

And so I pray for special help,
to somehow understand
the subtle implications,
of each proud miaowed command.

Oh, let me not forget that chairs
were put on earth to shred;
and what I like to call a lap
is actually a cat-bed.

I know it's really lots to ask
but please, oh please, take pity;
and though I'm only human,
make me worthy of my kitty!

Hi Mischief & family!
Today is the last day for any scheduled rain. This weekend the temperatures are predicted to be in the mid-eighties! From cold to hot in a few days. This is going to be quite a year.

Not much going on here today. Mom is feeling much better from her cold. She is back to torturing us with her spring-cleaning!

Last evening, there were five peacocks that had escaped from their owners yard. For some reason, they all congregated on the roof of our garage. Dad was not pleased. Mom uploaded on my CC page, one of the pictures she took from her iphone. Mom finally shooed them away by turning the water hose on, pretending to water the plants. Mom didn’t spray them, just wanted them to go back home. It worked! Mom says Dad is a grouchy, mean man! MOL!

Wow! 1 inch on a rain gauge is a lot of rain! We hope you're not getting pelted by those huge hail storms we keep hearing about. The news showed some hailstones that were the size of tennis balls! That could knock a poor kitty out cold! We hope BC and Shorty are doing well.

Give your Mom and Dad big hugs for us. We hope your Dad's elbow is feeling better each day. You and your family are always in our prayers dear furiend.

I left a vote with many hugs and soft purrs.

ODE TO THE CAT
~~~~~
Some cats are dark and others are light
They come in black, gray, orange and white.
If you are having a boring day
Throw them some catnip and watch them play.
They sometimes quarrel but never fight:
They’re seldom wrong and always right.
Some like to seen, some like to be heard
And always love to have the last word!
Our friendship’s a gift, they’re quick to explain
We’re very proud and a trifle vain.
It feels so good when they cuddle and purr
As you stroke their silky downy fur.
They’ll race you to your favorite chair
Then pretend to sleep – or just smile and stare!
They take great delight in catching a mouse
Especially one who dares enter your house!
And one thing I know for sure to be true -
Any cat will be happy if he lives with YOU!

Hi Mischief & family!
We sure are glad to hear your Dad's elbow is feeling better. Your family is always in our prayers dear furiend.Mom is feeling much better. She just has a lingering cough, but felt well enough to get the vacuum monster out today. MOL!

Queen Angel Misty’s Coronation was beautiful. We were late in attending, but were on time for the wonderful feast! Hail to our new Queen Angel Misty, long live King Tucker and a warm kitty welcome to our new nominees Meeko & Angel Bootz!

It rained here very hard all day yesterday. All of us kitties got scared when we heard some thunder. My sister Callie was frightened enough to run and hide under the bed with Whitey, Orangie and me of course. It’s funny how Callie’s dislike of Whitey and Orangie goes out the window when she is scared enough. MOL!

Hopefully the weather will start warming up for everyone soon. We’re always praying for our furiends and their families in need.

I left a vote with soft purrs and warm hugs.

K. Pete sent me this beautiful poem from a book of Cat Poems. I just had to share it with my furiends.

Oh, Mactavish Macbee
you are so amazing to me-
without so much as a stir
(as I ask where can he be?)
I look up to see,
you now sitting on the banister...

As your gaze meets mine
you instantly jump down,
then I hear a little meow,
as sweet as it can be-
you take a little bow
and softly rub against my knee.

Where are you now,
I don't see you in sight...
then, you appear,
as if you had wings
to take flight-
upon a Greek statue
you alight,
from this earth you momentarily disappear-
with the gods
you seem perfectly right...

With such balletic grace
you leap without a sound-
Baryshnikov himself,
you would not fail to astound;
I have to admit you make me feel
with some disgrace,
how clumsy is the human race.

As if you had little slippers to wear
you gently creep up the stair....
do I catch a little chagrin
in that Cheshire grin
as you see me standing in
my underwear...

Foolish at times
us mere mortals must seem
with our cares...
you who have the Wisdom of Solomon
in your sophisticated airs...

Yet I can discern
in your plaintive plea,
when the world has deserted me,
a most genuine concern...

And in your soulful eyes
of the purest intent,
as you curl up by my feet,
I take such comfort in your content.

-Lora Hollings

My Mom is finally recovering from her cold. My sisters and I have been dishing out lots of purr-therapy for her. We got a lot of much needed rain yesterday and are expecting more on Monday. Mom stayed in bed all day Saturday and most of today. She lost her voice yesterday, but she is feeling much better today. Of course I have been nursing her back to health. MOL!

We have your Dad in our prayers sweetie. We're just pawing by to let you know you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. No need to blog back. Go take care of your precious family. We love you.

We heard the great news about CC staying on for undetermined amount of time. I guess we should be happy and take whatever they give us.

My Mom is feeling a little under the weather today. I’m giving her lots of purr-therapy and hopefully this is the worst day of her nasty cold. Mom is walking around with Kleenex tissues in her hand and a red nose. MOL!

CAT IN WINTER =^.^=
~~~~~
As winter's dusk engulfs the day,
He ventures out to hunt his prey,
With eyes as hard and cold as ice,
He waits for unsuspecting mice,
A little lion out to kill,
Impervious to icy chill.

He's heard this is what he should do,
But he's not really sure it's true,
He knows that cats are brave and bold,
And really do not mind the cold,
But though he knows he should stalk prey,
He'd rather stay at home and play.

Warm and cozy, snug and fed,
This winter cat goes up to bed,
But sometimes when the moon is full,
The age-old instincts start to pull,
Then in the night, beneath the sheet,
He wakes and kills his owner's feet.

Now please don't blog back, because we know your family is busy taking care of your Dad. Mom thinks the fluid on his arm will drain in the next few days on its own We have your family in our prayers. Give your Mom a big hug for us.Take care sweet furiend.

Good mews! We are finally getting some much needed rain here today. My Dad is already recovering from his cold, but unfortunately Mom caught the pesky virus. It’s a good day to cat nap with Mom as we nurse her back to health. I was trying to keep my Mom warm last night by sleeping next to her head. She kept sneezing, so I finally got the hint and moved to a quieter spot by her feet. MOL!

I had hoped Mom’s cold would give us a reprieve from the vacuum monster, but no such luck. Mom put us all in her bedroom while she vacuumed the house. When she came to let us out, we had knocked her box of Kleenex to the ground and had shredded some to decorate the floor! My Mom said it looked like we had a party in the room! Of course I was sitting calmly on the bed, looking innocent. It wasn’t me Mom!

THE CROSS-BRED KITTENS =^.^=
~~~~~
A slinky temple-dancer,
lithe and slim and sleek,
Met a ginger guttersnipe
from the wrong side of the street;

He whispered his sweet nothings
in her eager seal-point ears,
Then when she said 'I'm pregnant',
the lout just disappeared.

The kittens were an odd lot,
sort of ginger Balinese,
With apricot striped bodies
and red socks to their knees;

Their mother tells them stories,
warns them not to meet,
Sweet-talking fickle tomcats
from the wrong side of the street.”

Hi Mischief & family!
We're so happy to hear your Dad finally got his stitches removed. I wonder why there is fluid on his elbow? Did the doctor say why? Maybe from not being able to bend his elbow? I'm sure you and your Mom will keep an eye on it. We'll keep your Dad and family in our prayers. Give your pawrents warm hugs for us.

My Mom was out doing errands this morning, when on her way home she saw a dog running in and out of traffic on a very busy road. Her and another car stopped to catch the dog before he got run over. The doggie was a very dirty, but adorable poodle. Thankfully he had a collar and a tag. His name was Baxter. Mom and the other driver got him into Mom’s car and you guessed it, Mom brought him home. Mom called the phone number on his tag and the family was happy to hear Baxter had been found. He had been missing for 2 days. Mom fed him and took him to his home, which was over 12 miles away. It was a happy ending for Baxter and especially for us cats. MOL!

Dad is feeling better from his head cold, but Mom is still trying to keep her sniffles at bay, hoping it’s just allergies.

FURRIES AT THE BOTTOM OF MY GARDEN
~~~~~
“There are furries at the bottom of my garden,
Some are ginger, some are tabby, some are black,
They are trampling on the borders and the veggies,
They are climbing up the fruit trees for a nap.

The furries keep on rolling in the catnip,
They have dug up all the seedlings in a day,
But how can I chastise them for their actions
When I laugh out loud to watch my furries play.

Some people have neat flower beds and borders,
Their seedlings thrive and so do all their veg,
But I can't give my furries marching orders,
Though they bring in half the garden to my bed.

There are furries at the bottom of my garden,
Where they frolic and they gambol in the sun,
Though they leave it looking like a recent war-zone,
I love my little furries, every one.”

Hi Mischief & family!
It was a long weekend. My Dad is sick with another cold. He slept all weekend so we had to be quiet. He did go to work this morning, so it’s time to terrorize the house. MOL! Kind of hard to do when My Mom has the vacuum monster out. My Mom has a scratchy throat this morning, so she’s taking lots of vitamin C. Geez, good thing us cats don’t have to worry about catching their germs.

We hope by the time you read this, your Dad had his stitches taken out and is doing fine. We're praying for him sweetie. We have him and your family in our prayers. We sure hope the weather warms up for you guys soon. Winter seems to be never ending. Take care dear furiend.

Home Is Where Your Cat Is
~~~~~
“Home is where you cat is,
of that, thare is no doubt.
The truth of that statement
isn't hard to figure out.

They leave their toys
here and there...
their fur is left
EVERYWHERE!

They have their food dishes
their treats and cans of food,
their kibbles and bits and catnip
for when they're in the mood.

Perhaps a container of cat grass
and a litter box tucked away,
as well as boxes and bags
for hiding, and sleeping and play.

They have bowls of water
and scratching posts too.
They lay claim to everything,
none of it belongs to you!

Home is where your cat is,
now you know why that is true,
because your cat owns your heart
and makes your house a home too.”

Hi Mischief & family!
I’m sorry for not stopping by yesterday. My Dad is sick with another cold, so we are all tiptoeing around the house while he rests. Mom went grocery shopping this morning and is making some homemade chicken noodle soup for Dad. Mom is also making us kitties a special pot of chicken soup without all the spices. I love playing with the egg noodles in my soup!

We have your Dad in our prayers, especially for his doctor's appointment tomorrow. We hope that awful purple bruising on his arm goes away soon. Be sure to give him lots of cuddles and purr-therapy after his stitches come out.

The sun is out, so we’ll be cat napping today. Whitey and Orangie are upstairs sunning in the bedroom window. Have a relaxing Sunday!

Hi Mischief & family!
I hope you had a Happy Friday! It was happy here because my Mom made a trip to Petco today, bringing us back lots of food, but most importantly, lots of treats! Even Whitey and Orangie came out to sit at the top of the stairs, waiting for their treats.

My Mom read the article in Cat Fancy about heartworm being misdiagnosed as asthma. I could see the worried brow on my Mom's face after reading it. The one good thing is the article said good x-rays of the lungs would show if heartworm was the problem. I just had a series of x-rays and they looked good. But Mom is watching me like a hawk. If I start wheezing again, she'll take me back to the vet and she'll have the article from Cat Fancy in her purse! My Mom says thank you so much to your Mom for the information. Give her a big hug for us. We hope your Dad is feeling okay and not being too hard on his stitches.

I’m still feeling great. Mom is always listening to my breathing, especially at night, and so far, so good. The sun was shining today, so we all had our favorite cat spots around the house to soak up some rays. Have a wonderful weekend!

2. You know you are a cat lover when every other picture in your cell phone is of your cat and you can't wait to show the latest to everyone at work.

3. You refer to your cat as one of your kids.

4. You know when you are a REAL cat lover when you won't get up and get the phone because you don't want to wake the kitten that's sleeping on your lap.

5. You know your a real cat lover when he digs his claws into your leg and you yell at him, but then you go running after him because you're sorry you yelled at him.

6. You tell your cat you love them more than you do your spouse.

7. You spend more money on your cats' food than on your own!.

Hi Mischief & family! It's Whiskers again!
Yes, Mom does still get Cat Fancy magazine. Thanks for telling us about the article on heartworm being misdiagnosed as asthma. Mom will read the article tonight. Mom does give all of us "Revolution For Cats" each month, which is supposed to prevent fleas, ticks and heartworm. Mom will definitely look in to that. In the meantime, it seems as though everyday is housecleaning day around here now. My Mom doesn’t want to see any dust bunnies around the house that might set off my asthma. I guess us kitties are going to have to make a truce with the vacuum monster. (Sigh!)

4. When you measure time by the cats you've had.

5. Your cats get better medical treatment than you do!

6.Your cat eats more off your plate than you do.

7.You kiss your cat on the lips.

Hi Mischief & family!
I'm so sorry I missed coming by yesterday. My Mom was frazzled from my visit to the vet, more so than me. MOL! We will keep your Dad in our prayers. We're glad he didn't have his stitches removed yet, plus he'll get to take some time off work. Yay! Don't let your sweet Mom work too hard. Give them both big hugs for us. Here's what I meant to send you yesterday...

I’m pawing by to let you all know my visit to the vet went well today. I did have to be sedated, so I’m still feeling a little sleepy and wobbly. My x-rays look good. The vet showed my Mom the before and after x-rays of my lungs and she was relieved to clearly see the difference. As nice as my vet was, I hope I don’t see him again for a long time. Thanks again for all your wonderful prayers and well wishes. I couldn’t have made it through this without my CC furiends.

♫ Rushing to the vets, in the family car,
Feeling very queasy, hope it isn't far,
Always feel this way, every time I go,
The car is nice and clean - think I'm going to throw!

Think I'll bite the vet, scratch and hiss and spit,
Wee all down is coat - then he'll have a fit.
Demonstrate my teeth, demonstrate my claws,
He'll pronounce me fit and well and show me to the door.

Rushing from the vets, grinning ear to ear,
Homeward bound again, feeling very queer,
P'raps I've caught a bug, I really can't be sure,
I only have to hear them say "vet" and I am cured. ♬

Thank you so much for your prayers & wishes for Shadow & Mom. She did eat her dinner last night and that made mom feel a little better. We have been through several rough patches with her in the last couple of months, hopefully this is just another one. We are so glad you are enjoying the stories!!

Hi Mischief & family!
Oh my goodness! What an awful mistake to make on your Dad's discharge papers! At least they realized it was a mistake and didn't try to take out your Dad's stitches. That would have been horrible. Hopefully when they do take out the stitches, your Dad's wound will have healed some more, so he shouldn't feel too much pain. Give your sweet pawrents big hugs for us. You are all in our prayers dear furiend.

Tomorrow is hopefully my last vet appointment for my asthma treatments. At nine p.m. tonight, no food or water for me! No fair! The vet said it is just a precautionary measure, in case I need to be sedated for my chest x-rays tomorrow. Mom says all the kitties have to suffer with me, so she not looking forward to that. When breakfast time comes around, there will be a lot of sad, hungry faces looking at Mom. MOL!

Whitey and Orangie are doing fine, still only coming downstairs at night, but they seem happy having the upstairs as their domain during the day. My fursister Callie still hasn’t made furiends with them, but she doesn’t growl at them as much. Hopefully someday we’ll all be one big happy family!

I left a vote with purrs and warm hugs. Thanks for all your wonderful prayers and well wishes.

P.S. I don't remember if I told you how beautiful your profile picture is. You look lovely in green!

CATS' CHARTER =^.^=
~~~~~
I wonder, every passing day,
If cats could speak, what would they say?

Please do not offer food that's stale,
And most of all, don't pull my tail!
Do not imagine it is right
To turn me out to spend each night,
No, leave me to enjoy my rest
By cozy fireside - that's the best.
Do talk to me, and stroke my fur,
I'll always answer with a purr.
All cats need food, but mice and rats
Are not enough for farmyard cats.
Make sure, when serving meat or fish
No bones appear upon my dish.
An unkempt look you ought to note,
Then comb the tangles from my coat.
Please learn the meaning of my words -
"I'm hungry" or "I'm watching birds".

We cats agree, it would be nice,
If people followed OUR advice.

Hello Mischief
What’s mew with you? Last Thursday Dr. William called Mommy with the results of my urine culture & sensitivity tests. I have a bacterial UTI, not e coli. So bad mews, good mews. I am taking the antibiotic Simplecef/Cefpodoxime, 100 mg ½ pill for 21 days. I do not act like I feel bad, so that is good.

4 days down, only 17 more to go! (It’s really not that bad taking the med, but please don’t tell Mommy I said that. I want her to feel guilty!)

Hugs,
Q MerryBelle

Hi Mischief & family!
My trip to the vet today for my asthma treatment went well. One more visit on Wednesday and hopefully I’ll get a clean bill of health. Thanks again for all your well wishes and prayers. They helped a lot.

Your poor Dad! It must really hurt his elbow when he bumps it! We hope he gets his stitches out soon. Callie is still playing hard to get with Whitey and Orangie. My Dad tried to say hello to Whitey yesterday when Mom was was sitting with her in her room, but Whitey opened her mouth and hissed at my Dad. Mom said at least Whitey didn't run away to hide!

I left a vote with purrs and hugs. I hope you have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day! You and your sweet family are always in our prayers. Don't let your Mom work too hard!

A Wish for a Furiend
~~~~~
Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of furiends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!

Hi Mischief & family!
We'll keep your Dad in our prayers dear furiend. We're glad he doesn't have to work this weekend. He sounds very brave and strong. Give him and your sweet Mom hugs for us.

I had another trip to the vet today for my asthma medication. The vet listened to my breathing and took another sample of blood. Hopefully next week will be my last two visits. Thank you for all the well wishes and prayers. CC furiends are the best!

I left a vote with soft purrs and warm hugs. Sending prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

PAWS FOR THOUGHT =^.^=
~~~~~
Kittens have such busy paws, very seldom still;
Skidding on a table top, along a window-sill
Poking all inquisitive down the easy chair
Feeling underneath the rug, sure there’s a treasure there.

Boxing shadows on the wall; chasing after leaves,
Patting moths when summer dusk her mystic pattern weaves.
Waiting underneath the hedge to hook unwary legs,
Fishing from their tidy box the plastic linen pegs.

Stretching up to touch your face, velvet soft to feel,
Flashing, swift as lightning, to needle claws of steel;
Creeping prone along the quilt to stalk imagined foe
Swooping with an instant pounce upon your moving toe.

Investigating thoroughly, every suspect scrap;
Fascinated by the magic of a dripping tap.
You’d think, at last, when fast asleep, those busy paws would rest,
But no, he chases dreamland prey with undiminished zest.

Isn’t it a shame when this enchanting wealth of fun
Suddenly becomes a cat, disowned by everyone.
Looking for a kitten? Then please to think it through,
A cat, once owned is yours for good, his life depends on YOU.

Hi Mischief & family!
I am feeling much better each day, thanks to my asthma medication and the get well wishes and prayers from all my dear furiends. Thank you so much!

My Mom woke up last night to the sound of a cat running up and down the stairs. She got up to make sure it wasn’t me, but guess what? It was ME! I keep telling Mom I’m feeling better. I still have a few more days of steroid injections and then the middle of next week I'll get more x-rays and blood work done. I have my paws crossed for a clean bill of health!

That is great news CC will be around for a while longer. Maybe someday they will just give up and let us stay on furever! I know, don't get my hopes up:( Boy oh boy, you sure are getting some strange weather where you live. From one extreme to another. We hope the crazy weather doesn't get your pawrents sick! We always have you and your precious family family in our thoughts and prayers.

SECOND HAND CAT =^.^=
~~~~~
“Give us a chance who are not brand new,
Who would love a home with someone like you.
We may have been around a bit,
Received many a blow and many a kick,
Starved and neglected most of our days,
Yet we are forgiving anyways.

But now's our chance to start anew,
A home with love that we never knew.
So, before a kitten you're tempted to pick,
Give us a look, but not too quick.
Look at the character in our face,
And our bodies, still full of grace.

Just think of us, day after day,
Watching people look and walk away.
But say the word 'yes' and we will know -
Our bags are packed and we're ready to go.”

Hi Mischief & family!
It looks like we made it to another day Tuesday on CC. Whew! I’m doing fine today and thank you all for your kindness and caring. I shudder to think of what I will ever do without my CC furiends. I have another appointment at the vet tomorrow, but my Mom and I are getting better at putting me in my cat carrier, so each day gets less traumatic. MOL! I’m trying to work with Mom as much as I can.

I left a vote with soft purrs and warm hugs. Your prayers and well wishes have been greatly appreciated dear furiends. We have your Mom and Dad in our prayers, along with your entire family dear furiend. Give Mom a big hug for us.

(Cat) Up A Tree =^.^=
~~~~~
“Err, yes I can totally explain
What I’m doing up this tree
Just give me a minute to think
Well now, let me see

Ah yes, I remember now
Now let me find the words
I thought I’d be a good neighbor
And visit these dear little birds

They are quite new to the neighborhood
So thought I’d introduce myself
And I’d heard that these poor little birds
Were not in the best of health

Yes, that is it, I brought them pills
Yes, pills to make them well
They felt so much better they went for a walk
Their house is empty as you can tell

Err no, I don’t know when they’ll return
They didn’t really say
BURP! Excuse me, I beg your pardon
I really must be on my way

No point in me now hanging around
This old deserted bird house
I need to make an urgent call
On my dear friend, Mr Mouse.”

Hi Mischief & family!
We are hoping and praying your Dad's surgery went well today. We have your Mom and Dad in our thoughts and prayers. I know you kitties will be there to take good care of both of them. Give your sweet Mom a big hug for us.

We had some much needed light rain today, but it has already blown out, making for a nice sunny day. My Mom took me to the vet this morning for my steroid injection to treat my asthma and I was a very good boy. I have been doing well, thanks to all your well wishes and prayers.

Every day we log on to CC, we are a little nervous. We dread the day when nothing will come up. But until then, we’ll still be here making our rounds. We hope you are all doing well this Monday.

I left a vote with soft purrs and warm hugs.

There are things cats do that we may consider little "blessings". Just wonderful little unexpected things that can make you smile. Here are some favorites.

1. Cats that "listen" to you
2. Cats that come to you when you are upset – like they know you need them
3. The purr of a cat
4. Watching a hungry cat eat well
5. Watching a sick cat start to eat well
6. The look of happiness when you pet or talk to a cat
7. Cats that greet you at the door
8. A cat circling your legs at feeding time
9. The lazy look of a sleeping happy cat
10. That lazy cat stretch in the sun that makes you smile
11. Watching a cat ready to pounce on a toy with such intensity
12. When a cat is suddenly "spooked" by nothing
13. When a cat brings you a toy and asks you to play
14. Seeing a cat sleeping, all curled up in a ball
