Due to a change in website platforms, a necessary step to enhance and update the CAT FANCY magazine website, it will no longer be possible to host Club Cat. Starting Jan. 1, 2014, Club Cat will close and members will no longer be able to accrue points. Members with sufficient reward points have until Jan. 10, 2014, to redeem their points for any of the cat products currently available in the Club Cat Rewards Catalog. On Jan. 15, 2014, Club Cat members with 25 reward points or higher will be automatically entered into a raffle to win special prizes. Raffle prize winners will be notified after Jan. 31, 2014. Points for the final Cat of the Day will be awarded on Jan. 1, 2014. New programs similar to Cat of the Day will be announced with the launch of the new website, so look for further announcements. Thank you to everyone who joined Club Cat! 01/31/2014 12:00.00 AM

The second day on Hawaii ...
… we will visit someplace a bit different. We are headed for the Seahorse Farm near Kona where they have over 2000 seahorses and are currently breeding over 15 different species characteristically unique shape, from the horsey looking head down to the long, curling tail. Then there’s the seahorses’ covering, a delicate skin stretched over bony plates rather than regular scales.

Before we begin our seahorse adventure, we need to make something purrfectly clear: Seahorses are for viewing, NOT for snacking.

Once inside we discover that Seahorses come in a variety of colors, with some species even changing their hue to match their surroundings. The Seahorse is a truly unique marine animal. At first glance, one might not even know a seahorse is a fish, with their unique upright posture. They have a distinctive long, tube-shaped snout with a prehensile tail that grabs onto corals and plants. Their jaws are small and only allow enough room to suck in small pieces of food. Seahorses are part of the family Syngnathidae, which also includes Sea Dragons and Pipefish. There are currently thought to be 80 species of seahorses found throughout the world’s oceans. They range in size from just over 1cm for pygmy seahorses and up to 14 inches for the Pot Belly Seahorse. This seahorse farm was the first one in the world and is the only one in the US. The guided tour lasts about an hour, the guide showing us various tanks where we watch them swim, hook tails and dance. We learn that sea horses mate for life. Beautiful, fascinating and mysterious, the seahorse is a fish like no other.

Next we visit Pana`ewa Rainforest Zoo, which is very unique; it is the only natural tropical rainforest zoo in the United States. It is home to more than 80 species of animals! First we take a regal walk amidst peacocks in tropical gardens. We then head for encloses where we see the binturong, giant anteaters, 'Io (Hawaiian hawk), white Bengal tiger, and lemurs galore. There are lush and exotic plants providing perches for beautifully colored birds. We enjoy our picnic lunch which we eat on benched tables; after which we enjoy ice cream bars from the zoo snack shop.

And now, off to the beach! Many Big Island beaches are among the best you will find anywhere, period. This is especially true along the sunny west coast. Mauna Kea - Kauna'oa Beach is a beautiful, long crescent of fine white sand with crystal-clear water; one of the favorite beaches on the Big Island. It offers excellent swimming and snorkeling, and has full facilities. We throw our towels onto the sand, strip down to bathing suits, and race into the water … warm, soothing, and a great place to unwind.

We choose to linger until the sun begins to drop below the horizon. Awesome. The colors are unlike anything we’ve yet seen on our Round the World Cruise. This was definitely worth waiting for. See pics of seahorses on my page.

Come visit me, A. Q. Cherish & K. Thunder forever.

Australia's Great Barrier Reef ...
… the world's largest coral reef, lies a short distance off the north-east coast and extends for over 1,240 miles (2,000 kilometers). There are many species of colorful fish, including the beautiful clown fish … we would need more than one visit to try and count them all. Larger marine species include the migratory gentle whale shark; humpback, southern right and orca whales; numerous dolphin species; and a number of shark species. We have opted to explore this area from a nice sturdy ship today; glass bottom viewing stations will make this possible.

Prince Angel Hercules and I have brought young Galaxy and his girlfurriend Verona down to the glass bottom viewing area. We have seen some incredible sea creatures, admired seamounts that are truly enormous, and an amazing array of corals. Every color in the rainbow is seen in the fish and sea plants; how very lovely. Some of the fish have expressed an interest in us, pressing against the thick viewing plates from time to time. We are amazed to learn there are about 30 species of whales, dolphins and porpoises that live in or visit the reef.

OH MY! A shark has come to the viewing window! Suddenly I have Verona in my lap and Galaxy is hanging around Hercules’ neck for dear life! We assure them this is only a grey reef shark which is harmless. They claim to be reassured, but the two young ones stay a LOT closer to us than the viewing port.

Our guide tells us Australian sharks are now protected but shark populations are decreasing everywhere in the world and we know very little about the consequences because sharks are in the top of the ocean ecosystems’ food chain. In fact we know so little about some most important species of sharks that we cannot even keep them alive in captivity. The Great White Shark is the most infamous of Australian sharks. It is the largest of predatory sharks in the world. Despite having the reputation of “killing machine” (thanks to the Steven Spielberg's movie “Jaws” more than any attacks) the Great White Shark does not target humans as a prey. Galaxy and Verona smile at the guide’s reassurances but continue to stay close to us.

We return to our own lovely ship and enjoy a sumptuous meal, the young ones taking advantage of the buffet service to indulge in many exotic dessert offerings. Okay, I confess. Hercules and I did the same. Tomorrow we will have arrived in Darwin, at the extreme north of the continent. Adventure ashore awaits us. See my page for pictures of a Great White Shark, coral on the reef, a sea turtle and, you can thank Mom for this, chocolate desserts. MOL & HKL!

http://msnbc.msn.com/id/49170436/displaymode/1247?- beginSlide=1 will take you on a tour of the reef.
