we're nearly
all done with christmas preparations just have to do a few more cookies and one quick bread then it's done as they decorated an azalea bush outside the front door and those will come down in 2 weeks time anyways or after the new year as janet's tree which went up the sat after thanksgiving will come down that weekend so she can get her bedroom back into it's regular form again as it's dropping needles now and means it's not going to last as long as the man told her it would! oh well, at least all the work on her car is done and now the bill is back up, but heck she's going to pay them $200 off of it this or next week and then has to have the $100 for the second week next month for master's nursing home payment or towards it! sandy,ab,haley,angels

we're working our
way up from the bottom of the page to meet up with where janet left off before she changed to this. she took pepper out this morning and saw a 26 and going down and forgot to cover up her car as we had another cold front go through so temps today won't get out of the lower 30s like it was for most of this week minus yesterday when we hit 46! going to be like that again tomorrow after we might surpass our current low of 15 which we hit on sunday this past weekend. then the big warm up will ensue with 40s, 50s and 60s in the span of 3 days and then lower 40s till later on next week when it'll be colder by the weekend per usual. sandy,ab,haley,angels

we're not supposed
to get above freezing today or tomorrow and record lows into the lower teens to mid teens the next few mornings and 30s through saturday, then up it goes and we'll be 40s the rest of next week after 2 days into the 50s one with showers. we'll take that over the 2 minor snowfalls we've gotten since friday last week! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Thank You for helping me Celebrate my Adoptiversary of 5 whole Years on 11/10 and now for making me win my 5th Cat of the Day Badge today 11/11/2014! Momma can't believe that I have been here that long!

I survived what most felines don’t after getting hit by a car. Momma says the only things saved me was One; it was a frosty morning and Two; CC furrriends helping with my vet bills! Momma and I are so appreciative to all who did so much for us!

Momma gave me xtra Temptation treats after breakfast and before bedtime! I do love my treats! MOL!

Some of you had asked if momma groomed me before my picture. The answer is no, but she does groom me once in awhile.

Thank You for coming to both of my Celebration pawties, all the gifts, pretty balloons & flowers, the yummiest goodies, but mostly your furrriendships and coming to my pawty!

Gee, which one of you is Dancing Bear? You both could be almost twins to me and my fur mama Kittzi #160203! MOL! I'm all gray and mama's all black!

bonfire sleepover/games tues/wed
janet's already putting the advert about the last sleepover and games up already so that one and all know about it and hopes that others will be keen on stopping by too! weather due to warm to the 50s and lower 60s sun-wed next week before we get another cold spell this time 30s and low 40s for highs with 20s at night and some teens, sheesh now that's a blow to our systems for sure! oh well, it is after all supposed to be getting colder and with any warm days we'll cherish them till we get warm spring temps again maybe as early as march who knows, hoping so and not getting dumped with all the white stuff like this year all came in feb/mar! sandy,ab,haley, angels

happy first day of november!
well there goes janet's plans for taking the bean vines off of the fences this afternoon. showers have already moved on in as janet found out when she and pepper were out for a walk not long after she got in from work. looks like we're going to be lucky not to get all that mess coming up the coast as a noreaster comes up the coast at us and it'll instead stay to the northeast of us as well as southeast off the cape/islands/ri/coastal ct, then pound downeast maine and parts of new hampshire with heavey wet snow some 5-8" worth so we last heard. going to be cold for this weekend, then warming to near 50 on monday and upper 50s to near 60 tues-thurs this coming week so should be grand for the inside-out games/sleepover starting this coming week and one more the second week in november before it all ends till the spring months again. sandy,ab,haley,angels

can you believe this???
that she was online blogging till 2:30 rushed out into the kit-chen and had a quick bowl of soup 5 minutes, then got the 2 pots of chicken and stars soup going and was between that and the bedroom getting fb/email done and then once supper was going half in the oven doing more chicken and baked potatoes with string beans on the stove she was more than ready for the sack! but she had dishes/clean up and froze 2 bags of the soup, then was back online (she walked twice too) doing an eletter response and of course her back and neck by then were feeling pinches and burning like they're starting to do now. she's not going to do more than rush through the res of cc so she can get to entries for fb and maybe clean out one email account as she won't have time after she's home from work. pay a bill at the garage, stop at comcast for a new remote as the one we have stopped working in the living room, go to the bank and then grocery shopping at stop and shop, aldi's and wal mart all before coming home. no wonder she overslept this morning had trouble sleeping on/off like sandy did last night! sandy,ab,haley,angels to wound up. don't forget sleepover/inside-out games start next tues/wed for 2 weeks only!

Hello Dancing Bear and family!
Hello precious kitties! Thanks for the cheers as I was named COTD ! My parents had out of town family over, so we've been real busy, and we've had to find new hang outs, too, because all our favorite spots were taken by so many humans. Thanks for all the special cheers!

Thank you for my COTD!
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,


Come visit me, Shonti.

Wander With Whiskers – June 14 –San Luis Obispo
Another Day In San Luis Obispo
After a great breakfast at the Madonna Inn, the female kitties all wanted to take a peek at the famous (top ten in the world) tom’s restroom. The girls had heard a trip to San Luis Obispo wouldn’t be complete without visiting the tom’s room at the Madonna Inn! In it, the urinals look like caves with waterfalls, which is activated when you break a beam of light. Yep, that's it!

Walk to Morro Bay -
There’s no better way to spend the day than out on the incredible estuary in beautiful Morro Bay. Strolling the bayfront, fishing, kayaking or simply sitting on the dock…it’s all here waiting for us. Morro Bay, along California’s Central Coast, is among the most visually spectacular communities in America. This is where we will start. It has a rich early history that stretches back to the adventures of the Chumash & Salinian Native Americans & visits by Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo & the Manila Galleons of the 16th Century. Here we can see the famous “Morro Rock.” Morro Rock is also sometimes called the “Gibraltar of the Pacific.” It is the last of a line of long-extinct volcanoes formed about 23 million years ago, which include nine peaks ranging from San Luis Obispo to Morro Bay. Morro Rock is a State Historic Landmark, a bird sanctuary & home to nesting Peregrine Falcons. It is therefore closed to any climbing or disturbance.

Now let’s go on a driving tour. Our motor coaches will pick us up at Morro Bay. The uncrowded roads & stunning views in & around San Luis Obispo make for incredible scenic drives. We’ll get a mixture of vineyards, curving mountain roads, and coastal views driving up US 101 & loop back to San Luis Obispo via Highway 1 through cattle pastures & farmland. We’ll travel the scenic back roads into downtown Arroyo Grande. Stroll the historic Village, discover turn-of-the-century Victorians surrounding Santa Manuela Schoolhouse, and cross the suspended swinging bridge — the only one of its kind in California.

Let’s end our day with a visit to some wineries. Wine tasting should be a perfect blend of a great experience & great wine, and that’s just what we’ll get as we enjoy the hand-crafted bottlings of San Luis Obispo’s wine region. The moderate climate of the verdant, sunlit Edna Valley just outside town allows for an extended growing season, which give local wines lush, distinct flavors sure to please any palate. My particular favorite winery is called Talley Vineyard Wines! Enjoy sweeping views of the Rincon Vineyard & the fields of Talley Farms from the tasting room. The vineyard is just minutes away from Lopez Lake, a great place for an evening picnic. An ideal setting for tasting great Pinot Noir & Chardonnay.

Time to head back to The Inn.
See pictures on my page. Have a Happy Father’s Day weekend!

Dollys Daily Delivery Day 3
This is Buddy. On the surface, he is nothing special. Just your typical black and brown tabby cat. But we know, underneath that tabby coat, this guy is a tough little survivor!

We found him when he was about 8 or 10 weeks old, living under our back porch. We were able to easily catch him because he couldn't see. Buddy was sick with a respiratory infection.

His eyes and nose were crusted closed with drainage and he had dried grass stuck all over his little face. His breathing was labored and we could hear him wheezing from several feet away. He was obviously very sick.

The weather was beginning to turn cold at night and we feared he would not survive another night on his own. If he did survive, he would surely starve because, not only could he not even see any prey because of the drainage sealing up his eyes but his breathing was so noisy, prey could hear him coming from a mile away! And how could he possibly avoid becoming prey himself! We knew we had to try and help this little guy!

We have no idea how he came to be under our porch but fate had definitely led him to the right place. We brought him in and after much fighting and squirming, we managed to get him cleaned up.

He was very fearful. It was apparent he had not been around people. He fought us like crazy and resisted everything we did. This little guy was a fighter! But he exhausted himself very quickly and his resistance weakened. It was like he just gave up and let things happen.

After cleaning him up, we put him in the isolation room with a nice warm blanket, water, a few kitten sized toys, and a little litter box. Now that his face was clean, he was able to see but his breathing was still labored and wheezy. We left him alone to explore his surroundings while we prepared some food. We prayed he would be able to eat.

Cats rely on their sense of smell to stimulate their appetite to eat. Since Buddy's nasal passages were so congested, we worried that he would be unable to smell the food, or that because of his labored breathing, he would be too exhausted to be able to eat.

We mixed some homemade cat food with some baby food and warmed it a little for him. At first, he seemed uninterested. We suspected he just didn't recognize the food as food. Finally, after much coaxing and smearing a little on his lips to make him lick, he got excited! He recognized the food and boy did he eat!

We were thrilled! A kitten that will eat solid food doubles his chances of survival. And as much as Buddy ate, we figured he'd live forever!

The next day, we took him to the vet and discovered that he probably had a Herpes virus, common in kittens. Because the virus can tax the immature immune system of a kitten, he was at risk for or possibly had a bacterial infection as well so antibiotics were prescribed. (continued tomorrow).
P.S. I know that my blogger missed some of you. Please have patience until she can get the hang of things with this

Thanks for voting for me to become COTD!!! It really means a lot to my Dadcat Mike and me to have so many friends come by the Windy Pointers profile with their kind words of condolence and their votes. I am humbled by your thoughtfulness. Cat Channel people and their kitties are the best!
Tonight I will gather all of the newest Angels and we will all lead off the Kitty Cat Dance at the Caturday Night Fever Dance Party here at the Rainbow Bridge. After that, it’s off for mouseburgers, catnip fries and milk shakes. Life is good here at the Rainbow Bridge!

Peace and Purrs,

Hi There!
Mom is finally up and going to make a round of visiting furrends on CC. We haven't really done it since K.Barney was king, but figure its about time. Mom has been stressed over what will happen with Zeus, but surely wants what is best for him and the thought of bringing another rescue in soon, puts it in a positive light. Another group member will be coming to microchip him Friday. Mom thinks that doing it at home would be less stressful than Saturday morning at the adoption, especially since he is so stressed going to adoption anyway.

Mom is feeling relatively healthy now. Has to make a run to Target today to pay on her bill and shop some more. Going to a Brit Floyd concert with her cousin and another friend on Thursday. Going out for dinner before the concert. At home she is trying to be more serious about Spring cleaning, because after the kitchen and bath need painting and kitchen floor needs replacing, besides the outside of the house and garage. She also needs to get going on her taxes and register for some classes she wants to take on writing. Sometimes we are glad to be kitties and not have to worry about these things!

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there... I do not sleep.
I am the thousand winds that blow...
I am the diamond glints on snow...
I am the sunlight on ripened grain...
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you waken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of gentle birds in circling flight...
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry—
I am not there... I did not die...

----- An Irish Blessing

Come visit me, Yogi, Maggie & Angel Tipper.

1/11/13 Hope its a Super Second Friday!
Barney here! Had to enlist the dogs help today for getting mom up. A sharp bark and then I pounced on her! We have work to do, mice to catch, cans to open! Woke up to a beautiful sight--- that bright shinny badge on the CMR page! A very Special Catgrats to our CMR! You do so much and truly hold our community together!

We are so glad everyone enjoyed Tyler/Toby's story. Yes, he did pass over the Bridge almost 10 years back, but mom still holds him forever in her heart.

Cats come to our rescue in many ways. Often people have found cats and call the group hotline to see if we have room. We may have an opening in a foster home or will ask them if they can be a Foster/Finder, which means they keep the cat and either they or we do the necessary medical checks and neutering, and then they bring the kitty to adoption events, until it is adopted to a permanent home. Current volunteers may know of needy kitties in their own neighborhoods and ask permission to bring them in. Perhaps they have been feeding them or even have them in their home already, but need help with medical bills. Some, like Zeus, come from the internet. Volunteers may see lists of cats due to be euthanized at kill shelters and will seek out openings at no-kill shelters, who are able to rescue them. Other volunteers will do the transport of those kitties and dogs to their safe haven. Another way is when kitties themselves find a volunteer and ask to come in. Some years back mom was met at her bus stop by a young Calico named Penny. Penny meowed a mile a minute, when she saw mom get off her bus and head up the block to our house. It was winter and Penny was wet and probably had been lost or dumped, possibly because she was in an early heat. She walked with mom, sometimes running ahead meowing, and when they got to our house she stopped and looked at mom. Mom looked at her and asked, "Did you want to come in?" Not a moment of hesitation--- mom opened the door and Penny ran in. Mom popped her up to the spare room, got her a potty, bed, and bowls of food and water. The next few days she checked for lost cat posters, vets and other rescues to see if anyone was looking for a lost cat around 5 months old, possibly younger. Nothing. Penny was checked by the vet, spayed and went into the adoption program. Even with their strict screening practices, she was adopted within 2 weeks.

Today, we remember Jim Croce
Jim Croce (1/10/43 – 9/20/73)wrote the "Time in a Bottle" after his wife Ingrid told him she was pregnant with his son. He had finished recording the album just over a week before his death. The plane crashed about an hour after the end of the concert.
The posthumous release included hit: "I'll Have to Say I Love You in a Song". He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1990.

The song's lyrics, dealing with immortality and the wish to have more time, came across as if he had had a premonition of his untimely death. Imagine having the power to pause or manage time.

********Time In A Bottle" by Jim Croce

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day
'Til eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go
Through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you

1/10/13 Thursday is Here! Barney is Here!
And mom is up by 4:00AM! Feeling a lot better than last night, when the arthritis in her left knee was really acting up.

Well, back to the story of Tyler. We do hope you got to read the first part of the story on the CMR or our Inspiration page #249417. We apologize for not completing page deliveries, but mom was not able to sit comfortably after she got home last night. You will remember that Tyler was suffering from malnutrition due to growing up on a diet of fried chicken, which he surely did not object to. He almost died and his owner, not cruel, but totally ignorant called mom looking for help.

Anyway, after the vet and mom got his strength back, mom discovered he had extremely aggressive behavior issues, partly due to the malnutrition and poor eyesight, part due to the fact that he was not used to living with other animals and may have been played with roughly as a kitten. He was neutered. The vet ended up suggesting a direct approach, which worked rather remarkably. She gave mom a very bitter tasting bandage spray to spray her clothes in and told her to be well covered by thick sweats and then approach Tyler as usual. At this time he had to stay in the spare room, because he would attack the other cats and dogs. The bandage spray had little scent. Mom went to Tyler and approached him normally. He actually looked forward to mom coming, but was fearful of her leaving and that was when he attacked! That day he hit her legs full force with tooth and claw! And stopped--- foamed at the mouth and totally backed off! Mom ignored the behavior and left. Later she returned and proceeded to talk to him and play with a wand toy and then leave again. She did this many times that day and for days to come. Tyler never attached her again. A few times he appeared to become fearful and think of it, but he backed off and gradually the behavior disappeared totally.

The time came to find Tyler a good forever home. He did not do well with the other cats and dogs and could not be brought to adoption events for that reason. It so happened mom was talking to a neighbor/friend. Her friend was a vet tech and studying for work in animal control. She visited Tyler and decided to try working with him. Since she only lived a couple houses away, mom could visit anytime. In a very short time Tyler bonded with her and her husband and became their fur-child. They changed his name to Toby. Eventually got 2 dogs and another cat and Toby, no longer a terror, lived well into his teens, in spite of his very rough start.

Monopoly of life:a lucky break just when U need it
A rags to riches tale:
On December 31, 1935, the game Monopoly was patented by Charles Darrow, an unemployed engineer in Germantown, Pennsylvania. He struggled with odd jobs to support his family in the years following the great stock market crash of 1929.
This fascinating story of corporate intrigue begins with the 30-year old, The Landlord's Game. It had a lot of the familiar Monopoly features like a "Go to Jail" square and utilities and properties for purchase. With his free time, Darrow modified it, basing his rental properties on his favorite resort town, Atlantic City.
Parker Brothers, at first, turned down Charles Darrow, explaining that his game contained "fifty-two fundamental errors" including: the game took too long to play, the rules were too complicated and there was no clear goal for the winner.
Parker Brothers later offered Charles Darrow royalties, on each new version of Monopoly sets sold. This generous deal made him a millionaire.
In 1970, a few years after Darrow's death, Atlantic City erected a commemorative plaque in his honor. It stands on the Boardwalk, near the corner of Park Place.

It's a wonderful life
Philip Van Doren Stern (1900-1984) began a short story, The Greatest Gift", in 1939. He was inspired by a dream, and reminiscent of the 1843 Charles Dickens' Christmas Carol. Stern shared 200 printed copies in 1943 with friends as a year-end cards after numerous publisher rejections.
Luckily, the pamphlet came to the attention of a RKO movie producer who purchased the rights. Frank Capra's production company saw the movie potential. He paid $10,000 for the rights in 1945. Stern's story was adapted into the most loved and memorable American family film, "It's a Wonderful Life" in 1946. Director Capra's inventiveness, humor and affection for human beings keep it glowing with life and excitement.
On Xmas eve, George Bailey's guardian angel shows him all the lives he touched and how different life in his community would be had he never been born. Although George repeatedly sacrifices his dream to travel the world, he realizes "No man is a failure who has friends."
My dear friends at CatChannel, each one of you is precious, charming and kind. We make every attempt to make all members feel welcomed. You have the generous spirit of George Bailey in your hearts. You make our community a wonderful place. Thank you for being our friends.
