Happy National Cookie Day Mr Boots!!
Thank you for stopping by with your sweet meows of condolence for the loss of our beloved K Zaboo! He may be gone but his spirit will live on in our hearts forever!

I've got a basket filled with Christmas cookies for everyone! There are Santas, snowmen, angels, stars & Christmas tree shapes all decorated with colored sugar & waiting to be munched by some hungry kitties so please help yourself...& don't forget to get an extra one for your blogger parents too!

The fog has finally lifted in our area but Mr. Sun is staying hidden. That hasn't stopped the kitties outside from playing though...MOL! They were 'helping' mom gather the blankets out of the kitty houses on the porch so she could wash them before the really cold weather comes our way in a couple of days. She checked Sammie dog's blankets too but they weren't too bad since she's been spending a lot more time inside than out lately. Mom made her stay out for a while so she could clean out her kennel & sweep the dog fur up from around it though. Poor doggie...MOL!
Trixie is being her normal cyclonic kitty self but mom noticed that she's been trying to fill K Zaboo's pawprints lately. She's been laying on mom's computer chair every day like he used to do & has been 'helping' when cooking in the kitchen is going on. I must admit it's the purrfect role for her but she'd better remember who has the paws of justice in the house...MOL! Monkey & Fluffinella are being ornery again today. In fact Monkey tried to tackle me...which didn't work out as she planned...MOL! It did get me excited though so I took off running with her right on my tail & ran around the house at full speed for several minutes. WHEW...after a good romp like that this old kitty needs a good, long nap...MOL! Well got to go find the purrfect place before one of my sisters grabs it so will paw you a vote & meow at you again soon.

Sleepy purrs,
Patches & NICE Crew

Thank you dear furiend...
for wrapping your paws around my family in loving & gentle comfort when I joined the angels last Monday. My spirit is now flying free & I've discovered the joy of spreading angel dust thanks to the helping paws of my precious angel furiends & fursibs. I know my earthly family will continue to hold me forever in their hearts as they move on with their lives, but right now they're still getting used to me not being there with a sweet meow or soft purrs when they need them the most. My sisters Patches & Trixie have been a great comfort to them as they climb into empty laps purring softly & my younger sisters, Fluffinella & Monkey, have been making them laugh with their antics to help chase the gloom away. I won't be doing 'regular' family blogging like I used to but rest assured that my voice will ring out when it's needed most. Thank you for being there for my family...& me during my illness & passing dear furiends!

Purrs of love & sprinkles of angel dust,
Angel K Zaboo
***********************************
Light a candle,
see it glow,
watch it dance,
when you feel low,
think of me,
think of light,
I'll always be here,
day or night,
a candle flickers,
out of sight,
but in your heart,
I still burn bright,
think not of sadness,
that I'm not near,
think of gladness,
and joyous cheer,
I have not left,
I am not gone,
I'm here to stay
my little one.
So when you light a candle
and you see it glow
and you watch it dance
in your heart you'll know,
that I would never leave you
even when you feel so blue
I'm sitting up here with the Lord
and now watching over you.

Thursday purrs...
Sorry I haven't done a real blog this week but mom has been very busy. She went Christmas shopping on Tuesday & spent most of the day talking & texting big sis yesterday.
Teehee...we have some wonderful mews to share!! Big sis & her hubby will be having a baby next year!! Sis went to the doctor yesterday & it was officially confirmed! That means that by next summer they'll have a furless baby to take care of as well as their 2 dogs & 3 cats...MOL! Sis & her hubby are super excited & are getting things moved out of the computer room so it can be made into a nursery. Another thing they've got to do is trade vehicles. Sis currently drives a 2 seat sports car & hubby drives a 2 door older model so there's no way that will work...MOL! Mom is looking forward to shopping for grand baby goodies when she goes out again too...MOL!

Kitty update:
Zaboo is having a bad day with his tummy today after eating half of a mouse that was caught while mom & dad were sleeping last night. Mom knows it was him that ate it because she had to clean up a mess when his tummy rejected part of it. ICK!! She was concerned when he refused to eat his canned food this morning but now understands why. She offered it to him again a few minutes ago & he ate it so he must be feeling a little better than he was. Sigh...he's just not acting like himself these days. He isn't cleaning himself well, eats very little, sleeps a LOT, & will only snuggle with Patches. They're about the same age but he's always had health problems so mom is keeping a close watch on him & will do whatever she can to keep him from suffering. She doesn't like to think about his future like she used to because of his continuing problems but luckily she has all of us girls to help cheer her up with our silliness! She said if it wasn't for us she'd be very depressed because Zaboo has been in the house longer than any of us.

Well I've got to go so I can 'help' mom sort laundry. Have a great day dear furiends!

Soft purrs,
Fluffinella & NICE Crew

My sweet heart Talley and I have some wonderful news. We’ve finally chosen a date for our wedding day. Talley did some research and discovered January 6th (which is a Monday next year) was considered Christmas before the reform of the calendar. It is the feast of the Epiphany, which is when the Wise Men reached Jesus and announced his birth to the world. It is still called “Old Christmas” by orthodox Christians. The celebration is held on the Sunday that falls between January 2nd and January 8th. We chose Sunday, the fifth of January 2014 to exchange our vows.

We still have a lot of planning to do dear furiends. We will soon let you know where and on what page our wedding will take place. Until then, we hope you can set aside the date to share in the celebration of our love.

I left a vote with soft purrs and warm hugs.

"As our story continues to unfold, we've decided to have and to hold. So we're gathering together with open hearts, for a day we no longer will live apart. January 5th we'll share our love so true, with you as our guests as we say our "I do's."

Monday meows
Time once again for me to catch up from last week! Zaboo's medicine finally arrived on Caturday so mom started him on it right away. So far it seems to be helping his 'drips' & turning his stool much more solid so we're hoping that he'll soon be back to normal (for Zaboo...MOL) & begin to clean himself better so mom won't have to.
Since it's almost Halloween...or Howloween if you ask our dog...MOL...I found a story on the holiday spot today that I'd like to share with you. Hope you enjoy the ending!
**************************************************- *
This guy was on the side of the road, hitch hiking, on a very dark night and in the middle of a storm. The night was black and no cars went by. The storm was so strong, he could hardly see a few feet ahead of him. Suddenly he saw a car coming towards him. It stopped. The guy, without thinking about it, got in the car, closed the door and and then realized there was nobody behind the wheel.
The car started slowly. The guy looks at the road and sees a curve coming his way. Scared he starts to pray begging for his life. He hasn't come out of shock, when just before he hits the curve, a hand appears thru the window and moves the wheel..The guy, paralyzed in terror, watches how the hand appears every time they get to a curve.
The guy, gathering strength, gets out of the car and runs to the nearest town. Wet and in shock, he goes to a canteen and asks for two shots of tequila, and starts telling everybody about the horrible experience he just went thru. A silence enveloped everybody when they realized the guy is crying and isn't drunk.
About half an hour later, two guys walked in the same canteen and one said to the other. "Look Pepe, there's the jerk that got in the car when we were pushing it!

Our warmest day of the week?
It's only supposed to reach 54 today with a predicted low of 30 tonight...which means I should wake up to see my very first frost tomorrow! The rest of the week is supposed to be even cooler with a cold front moving in. Luckily all of the outside kitties have had their blankets washed & tucked into their cattery houses so they're ready for the cold...even if our humans aren't...MOL!

Dad surprised mom by going to work this morning but the kids are still home for the day & will return to school tomorrow. Mom said since the kids are entranced with TV right now that I could meow out a short blog & chase a few of you to keep warm...MOL! Who's up for a good romp? I know Fluffinella is because she made sure I was awake this morning by pouncing on me & licking my ears. Once we'd all had our canned food it was wrestle time, followed by a three kitty race. Fluffinella came out on top (literally) in the wrestling match & Trixie was the paws down winner of the race. One of these days I'll be a contender for both of these esteemed titles but they have to admit they can't do the stunts I do on the cat tree...MOL!
Well I've got to get pouncing to see what my sisters are up to. In honor of National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day I'm leaving everyone a generous slice with your vote. Have a magnificent Monday everyone!

Fall Break has arrived...
so dad & kids are home until next Tuesday, which means I won't be blogging much until they go back to school so they can spend time together.
Zaboo had another IBD flare-up yesterday so mom was busy following him around the house to make sure she cleaned up any messes he made. He's better today though because he's quit moaning & isn't leaving little dribbles everywhere. We're not sure what he ate that he wasn't supposed to but at least he's perked up & is bright eyed today. He's eating well (in fact he tried to eat all of our canned food this morning too...MOL), drinking fine & getting plenty of naps to regain his stamina. The rest of us are doing great & have been racing through the house, tackling each other & having a grand time. Fluffinella got mad at me when I pounced on her & bit her tummy a little too hard. Don't worry though because she got even! She held me down & kicked me, plus chewed my ears...but that just brought out even more orneriness in me...MOL! My next 'victim' was Patches. I leaped on her back & swatted her ears but the next thing I felt was my butt hitting the floor because she dumped me off & took off running. We raced for a while & then I saw Trixie watching me from the entertainment center. She saw me looking at her & jumped down right on top of me!! I was shocked but overcame that really fast when she chirped happily at me & raced off...checking behind her to make sure I was following. She's SO fast that I have to put it into overdrive to even keep up. Good thing I've got energy to spare or else I'd be napping right now instead of blogging...MOL!
Well I've got to get going so will give you a great big Monkey kitty hug & paw you a vote with a catnip spider inside.

Happy purrs,

Hope your family has a great vacation!
I've got to play catch-up with everyone today! Our main browser had a mental breakdown yesterday so we didn't even make it on to CC at all. This morning mom deleted the program & re-installed it & so far it seems to be doing okay. Keeping my paws crossed that it stays that way!
Since I've been assigned as the family blogger for the month & some of you may not know me I'm going to meow about how I found my furever home with the NICE crew.
It was a very hot July day when mom came outside to feed & water the barn kitty crew. She kept hearing a pitiful mewing from somewhere out back but knew all of her 'regular' kitties were accounted for so began to search. Every time she'd call out I'd reply until she finally located me. I was stuck at the top of a very tall tree & was too scared to try to get down on my own! Finally after a lot of coaxing from mom I got brave enough to come down. As soon as my paws hit the ground I ran to mom & gave her tons of sweet kisses & very loud purrs for helping get me out of a very sticky situation. She brought me some canned food, which I gobbled down very fast, & then went back inside to let me calm down. Sis went over to see if the neighbors across the field were missing any kitties but they said if it was theirs then they didn't want me back so take me to the pound or keep me themselves! That's what I call rude & uncaring!!
I would have been content to stay outside with Joseph, but unfortunately one of the other kitties (Sassee) hated me as soon as she saw me & the next thing I knew she was attacking! Luckily mom heard the commotion & came to the rescue once again. She scolded Sassee then went back inside, but was watching through the window. As soon as Sassee thought it was safe to be aggressive again she pounced on me & started hurting me. That did it for mom!! I was brought inside (with protests from dad) & was immediately greeted by Zaboo with loving purrs. Patches tried to ignore me, Trixie hissed but was curious, & Fluffinalla hissed evilly & swatted me. That made me a little nervous so I went to dad & begged him to pick me up. Once he saw how cute & loving I was he dropped his complaint about 5 kitties in the house & accepted me! And I thought Zaboo was a pushover...MOL! Now that everyone is used to me I have tons of fun with Fluffers, Trixie & Patches (Zaboo rarely plays) every day so my life is now purrfect thanks to the help of my guardian angel who made sure I got to a home that would accept me for who & what I am!

A new month is upon us
which means that my time as the family blogger has come to an end...SIGH! I must apologize for not meowing with all of you yesterday as planned. The day started out with a 2 hour fog delay for school so that put mom’s scheduled errands for the day on hold until the kids left. Once they were gone she had to get our dry food & some cookies for the dog because we were nearly out (heaven forbid if that would have happened…lol). While she was out she also did a few other errands in that particular town so by the time she got home it was too late for me to meow without interrupting homework time for the kids. Today after school the entire family is traveling to a different town so that human brother can get his weekly allergy shots, human sis gets her yearly check-up, & also do the grocery shopping for the next 2 weeks since mom has to report for jury selection next Monday. If she’s chosen then she has to stay there the rest of the day & be involved in a court trial for most of the week so we may not get much chance to blog…depending on the time it will take place. SIGH…it seems as if something is always popping up to take us away from our furiends on CC, but law & justice must prevail in the human world so we can’t condemn mom for doing her civic duty if chosen & will do what we can to get our mournful meows (MOL) out to you.
September was a great month to share with all of you & I’ll miss meowing with you until my next turn but alas, I must step aside to let another NICE kitty stand on center stage for a while…or maybe I should say run around the stage…MOL! Our new blogger for October is none other than our own little black cat Monkey! She’ll keep you on the lookout for sneak attacks, flying toys, & strange shadows following behind you during the month so watch your tails because they’re one of her favorite targets…MOL!

Well I’ve got to run but I leave you in the capable, yet ornery, paws of our own little creature of the night for the month. Have a spooktacular October everyone!

~Purrs & hugs from the NICE Crew~
It’s still a chilly 63 degrees with a light breeze around here so mom is staying inside until things warm up a little more. Since I've got quite a bit of catching up to do with all of you today (plus a mouse to track down again since I lost him in mom/dad's bedroom) I’ll paw you a lobster puff filled vote & leave you a silly poem I wrote today as I looked out the window to watch the birds shivering…MOL!

September is halfway over & fall is nearly here,
so say good-bye to summer fun for another entire year.
No more stepping onto sand-filled beaches that burn your little toes,
soon the raking of fallen leaves will be your daily woes.
Put away the barbeque, stow the garden tools,
drag out the warmer clothes for kids going off to school.
Time to decorate for fall with beautiful autumn tones,
for the first day of fall arrives next week no matter how much we moan.

I told you it was silly…MOL! Have a pawsome day sweet furiends!

Sweet calico kisses,
Q Trixie & NICE Crew

Happy Teddy Bear Day!!
Thanks for pouncing by to help celebrate sis' 15th BD with us!

Mom is doing laundry today so not much time for blogging but I’m bringing everyone a Teddy Bear cookie that Patches & I whipped together this morning when we found out that these cute little bears are being honored today! Here’s the recipe if any of you want to bake some for your family later. Please note that it only makes 14 cookies so you’ll have to enlarge it if you've got a lot of people you want to give them to. I've posted a pic of what they look like in my gallery. They’re really easy to make so have fun!

Teddy Bear Cookies

2/3 cup butter or margarine
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
2 ½ cups flour
½ cup unsweetened cocoa
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt

Directions

Cream together the butter or margarine, sugar and vanilla. Add the eggs. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients. Gradually add to the creamed mixture and blend. Chill until firm.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
For each cookie: Roll: 1 ball for the body (1 inch), 1 ball for the head (3/4 inch), 4 small balls for arms/legs (1/2inch), 2 smaller balls for ears, and 1 tiny ball for the nose. Arrange on ungreased cookie sheet. With tooth pick, draw eyes and mouth.
Bake 6 minutes or until set. Let cool 1 minute, then remove from cookie sheet. Optional: Make a ribbon around their necks using licorice whips (after baking).

Bear hugs,

so we've cooked up enough thin crust, deep dish & regular style pizzas to feed every kitty & human blogger on CC! Grab a slice, or two...or three (MOL) so you can nibble while I meow. Enjoy!!

Today is little human sis' 15th birthday!! Guess I can't be calling her little sis anymore since she's 5 times my age...MOL! Mom has baked her a German Chocolate cake, which is now cooling, & then she can get the icing on it before sis & bro get home from school. She wants ham for dinner so mom has it laid out & will probably also see if she wants the cheesy cornbread that brother made at school yesterday. If not then mom will ad lib...MOL! Dad took sis shopping last weekend (so she could pick out what she wanted) & she came home with a limited edition fairy on a horse for her growing collection of horses & fairies. Mom says maybe dad should have bought her some new shelves too because the ones she has are getting very crowded with her 'pretties'...MOL! She put my favorite fuzzy horses WAY in the back so I can't carry them off to play when she was rearranging things this weekend so now I'll have to find something else to drag around. SIGH...she's such a spoilsport sometimes!

Did you know that Fluffinella & Monkey are wild & crazy kitties just like me? Well they are...MOL!! Those two have been chasing each other through the house every morning lately! Of course there's no way I can let them play alone so I'm right there in the middle of the action & teaching them to box at the same time...MOL! (I learned my boxing skills from Patches...who just happens to be the champion boxer of all the inside crew.) Zaboo tried his best to stay away from the three of us when we're running at top speed or leaping like Lemurs from point A to B. Patches generally stays out of the way of our wild morning races too but every once in a while she has to insert her 'paws of justice' into the action to slow us down...MOL!

Well, I'd better wrap this up so mom can get busy icing the cake before Zaboo decides he needs a sample as it's sitting there. Have a great day everyone!

Cheese pizza kisses & tomato sauce hugs,
Q Trixie & NICE Crew

P.S. Praying that Mr. Boots has been found!

~Happy National Toasted Marshmallow Day~
WOW...your little one goes back to school a lot later than ours! School here started on August 14th! Purrs of good luck to her on her studies & hoping the entire family has a great vacation. Hope to hear from you again soon!

I can hardly believe the last Friday of August has already arrived! That means my time as the family blogger has come to an end & another kitty will take over next week. Who will it be? I have the sealed envelope in my paw so let me open it up & we'll all know...MOL! (The sounds of an envelope being opened are heard) And the lucky blogger will be Q Trixie!! Patches & Joseph will head our birthday & adoptiversary team & Angel Sherman will be our angel spokescat for crossings. It's a good thing Sammie dog picked Trixie's name out of the hat this month because her cyclonic catitude was going to start whirling out of control if she didn't get to meow at everyone...MOL!
As you know it's been a busy August for the NICE Crew & we're hoping that September will be more relaxed & normal...whatever normal is with 5 kitties & a dog in the house...MOL!
Mom made spaghetti sauce yesterday so once again she was up to her elbows in tomatoes. They've still got a few more onions to pull & a few scattered cucumbers but the rest of the garden is starting to die as the growing season comes to a close.
All kitties in & out are doing great! Joseph continues to hover close to kittens Daisy Mae & Sandy. He saw dad go out to look at the stars late last night (mom was still canning) so naturally he jumped into his lap as soon as he sat down. What really surprised dad was that the kittens followed & parked themselves under his chair since they generally run from anyone but mom. When he came in he told mom about them & it made her very happy that they're finally starting to accept other people besides her. Now if we could just get Joseph to stop whacking Bob cat when he comes to eat things would be purrfect. I doubt that will happen anytime in the near future though because he is king of the outside crew & has to remind him who's boss...MOL!

Well I've got to get my tail in gear so I can visit everyone that's pounced by our pages the last couple of days. It's been great meowing with all of you again & I hope our calico cyclone won't blow you over in her enthusiasm next month...MOL! Have a fantastic Friday & a great weekend dear friends! Leaving everyone in your family a yummy toasted marshmallow as I paw you a vote!

Sweet meezer hugs,
K Zaboo & NICE Crew

~Happy Caturday Meows from the NICE Crew~
It's pawsome that we're on at the same time today...MOL!! Thank you for the sweet compliments & applause for my 'Earth Angels' poem! It came from the heart & is meant for all of my dear CC furiends that have helped us get through rough, sad...or even happy times! Thank you for being such a dear furiend!!

Sorry we didn't get to visit you yesterday like I'd planned but it's been a very busy week for mom. So far she's canned 14 quarts of tomatoes & there are twice that many still sitting in the garden waiting to be picked. She's hoping to get them done before Monday since that's mom & dad's 34th wedding anniversary. She says if she doesn't then they'll wait until Tuesday...MOL!
The family went shopping last night so dad could get some repair parts for his wagon, which is needed to transport the limbs he's planning on trimming from all of our trees this weekend. They also stocked up on all the animal foods, got Sammie a new chew bone, & got new shoes for little bro & dad. Little sis also got a pair of cute sandals to add to her collection & mom finally broke down & bought a new purse since her carrying strap broke as she was heading out the door. Today dad will be working in the yard (hopefully with kids helping) & mom said she'll go to the grocery store to get some people food. If anyone ever tells you that August isn't busy please feel free to hiss at them...MOL! This is how every day in August has gone so far: I'd just start to get comfy on mom's lap when she'd tell me she needed to get up to do something else. She'd put me down, wade through the 5 of us giving her pitiful looks (MOL) to do whatever was SO important & then sit back down for a brief moment. I'd climb back into her lap, give her a sweet meezer kiss & curl up. Before 15 minutes went by she'd be off again! Now I ask you...is this any way for me to feel loved or appreciated? I think not & the looks I give her when she puts me down should be proof that she's been ignoring me WAY too much...MOL! My sisters are feeling the same way (except Monkey who goes about her kitten antics with no clue) so Patches & Trixie have been racing to see who can get to dad's lap first when he comes home from work. Fluffinella races around the house like a maniac the entire day but has been making sure she beats me to mom's lap every night when she does finally call it quits for the day. Even our Sammie dog is feeling somewhat abandoned so she's been extra rowdy when mom takes her for her evening walk. September is right around the corner so I'm hoping the garden will be done so mom can finally sit still long enough for me to get a proper lap nap. Dreaming of a quiet month to come...MOL! Have a Happy Caturday everyone!

Soft purrs,
K Zaboo & NICE Crew

Hi Mr. Boots
I didn't actually eat any of the corn or the cob but the green husks. Mom has made sure I can't get into any more of it & make my tummy upset. I always sit in mom's lap when she's at the computer so know all about the joy of dancing across the keyboard...MOL! She gets fussy if I try it when she's using her laptop though so I snuggle up as close to her as possible when it comes out instead of invading her lap.

Shhh…we’re sneaking up on all of our angels on earth to give them a big hug of appreciation for everything they do throughout the year. You know who you are & your deeds have not gone unnoticed!! We’re thankful to have so many living angels among us on CC & feel blessed that they were given to us because of the love our parents share for US…their furry feline companions. Each friend we’ve met here is special to us & the diversity of personalities, beliefs, & life styles all getting along so well is what makes CC unique from all the other animal channels. We may hiss & growl at times but the way we pull together during times of hardship is what really matters & for that we give the entire CC community an A+++ rating!

Instead of doing a family update today I thought I’d get creative! Now most of you know that I’m not generally known for poetry like some of my other sibs so…after several giggles & groans from my sisters, plus lots of editing help from Angel Sherman’s guiding paw, this is the completed project. I humbly present it to all the beloved earth angels among us & wish all of you a blessed day filled with love-filled purrs!

Gentle hugs,
K Zaboo & NICE Crew
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

~Earth Angels~

Angels fly among us every day & not just in the sky,
We only need to open our hearts to know they’re flying by.
These earth angels ask for no reward, their deeds done out of love,
Their hearts are big as their words are soft, like the gentle cooing of a dove.
God has called these angels, their missions stirred by his loving hand,
Their healing ways are as numerous as the grains of all earth’s sands.
Bless these angels each day you wake, sing their praises far & wide,
Their greatest reward will be received when God carries them home to his side.

~Another busy day~
Thanks for stopping by to visit Monkey. She's busy swinging on the cat tree again (MOL) so I'm cleaning up her page.

It's warming up outside so it's purrfect that we're celebrating National Lemonade Day! The sun is shining & there's very little breeze so the windows have been closed & the A/C turned on. We prefer the windows open but can't have our mom getting hot & bothered...MOL!
Mom has already done 3 loads of laundry & is now searching for more quart canning jars to finish up the tomatoes that are already picked. Looks like she's going to have to buy more at this rate because there are still LOTS of green ones hanging on the vines. She's also got several ears of corn to clean so it can be frozen but all of these summer goodies will be great this winter when the snow is flying! I'm thinking of making her a supermom cape to wear around because she's always so busy yet still finds time to give all of us, & the silly dog, the attention we demand. Sammie dog was clean for about 10 minutes yesterday after she got her bath. Unfortunately when she went out she rolled in the dirt so now she's even dirtier than she was. They need to invent invisible shields to put around doggies to keep them clean...MOL! I'll bet you a catnip cookie that all doggie moms wish their slobbery companions would stay as clean as kitties do all of the time.
The outside kittens (Daisy Mae & Sandy) are doing great with Joseph as a surrogate daddy watching over them. They're getting tamer by the day & Daisy makes sure she gets petted when mom brings out food. Sandy still acts mad at mom for cleaning her ears when she was a tiny kitten so she's being stubborn but hopefully soon she'll start being more friendly too. When mom gets time she's going to snap a few pics of them & post on Patches/Joseph's page so will let you know when they get put up.
Trixie is doing great & has been racing through the house like her normal cyclonic self again! She's eating well too so soon should gain back the weight she lost when she got sick. I'm doing good too...although I did chew on some corn husks that made me meowy yesterday because they upset my tummy. Patches is fine, Fluffinella is being a white tornado & Monkey is staying true to her name by climbing as often & as high as possible. I'm just glad she doesn't hang by her tail...MOL! Well I'd better get going before I meow your ears off. Have a great day everyone & I'll see you again later in the week!

Loving purrs,
K Zaboo & NICE Crew

Swinging with Monkey
Hi kitties! Can you believe that Zaboo is actually letting me pounce around all by myself today? I think it's great & it made me even more rambunctious than normal...MOL! This week I've been learning not to climb walls & blinds, but mom says I also need a refresher course about not getting on the kitchen table. Oops...sorry mom but I was just so excited when Zaboo meowed that I could blog to everyone that my brain went dead & I totally forgot! Teehee...I think she bought it...MOL!! Mom says I'm growing like a weed since I came in on July 26th so she took a few pictures of me & made me a new profile photo with lots of toys in it. TOYS are pawsome & I make sure each one in the kitty basket gets played with every day so it doesn't get lonely or bored. Trixie is letting me follow her around more now that she's feeling better. The only time she hisses at me is when I'm eating from HER food dish or try to snuggle with her. She even jumped in to defend me from Fluffinella! It was impressive to watch too because she's so much smaller than Fluffers! Trixie is my heroine & I hope that someday I'll be just like her. Hey what the....Mom is giggling. Did I say something funny? Now Zaboo is rolling his eyes & Patches let out a mournful "Oh no" meow. I need to talk to the expert on this one. Now where is Trixie? Be right back....(Monkey leaps from the computer desk & races to the family room. Mom & the other kitties hear them meowing & then Trixie starts laughing so hard she falls off of the chair she was sitting on. A slightly miffed black streak races back to the desk.)
MOL....she said I already act like her when she was this age so only time will tell if I discover more of her wily ways! I'll sure try my hardest because she can run faster than anyone I know, is powerful enough to control bigger cats, & is able to leap tall objects in a single bound! HEY...she's the Calico Supercat! Now I know her secret identity...MOL! All of us know that every super hero needs a sidekick so that's where I come in! All I need is a good nickname & a flashy costume so I'll get to work on that right away! Have a great day sweet furiends but now I've got to fly......

Happy purrs,
Monkey & NICE Crew

Loving hugs from Q Trixie
Thank you for your prayers & purrs of love while I was at the vet clinic last week! I appreciate the visits, sprinkles of angel dust, purrs of love, & words of encouragement you sent my way as I battled a FUO (fever of unknown origin). Mom still thinks I ingested something that I shouldn't have & it finally passed without being noticed because my appetite is back to normal & I'm starting to act like the infamous calico cyclone you put your breakables away for...MOL! I'm still not jumping quite as high or far as I'm used to but mom keeps saying to be patient & that will return when I put a little more meat on my bones so my leg springs will be filled out again. Mom says my temper is already back in full swing though...MOL! I was mad that she was making me take that icky medicine again this morning so when Fluffinella came up beside me to take a sniff when it was over...she got whacked. I sent her scurrying into the other room & she hasn't come near me since. I'm still getting used to the idea of Monkey wanting to follow me, although she's easier to scare away than Fluffers is...MOL! When I'm back to 100% then I might consider playing with her but for now she'll have to amuse herself with the toys or chasing Fluffers through the house. YAWN...well I've got to go take a nap to recharge my cyclonic batteries so will sign off for now with a calico kiss to your nose & a gentle hug for being such a dear furiend during my illness.

Sweet purrs,
Q Trixie

Tuesday meows from Zaboo
I'm cleaning all of our pages as I stay camped out on the blanket my sweet little sis Trixie had been laying on while we wait for the vet's office to call & let us know what's wrong with her. Even Monkey kitten has been subdued this morning & is laying beside mom on the couch. Trixie was terrified when mom finally got her out of the carrier. She got a firm grip on mom's shirt so had to be peeled off when the vet tech came to take her. She gave mom a very mournful, scared look as she went around the corner in the tech's arms but we know they'll take good care of her & will let us know as soon as they find out what's wrong. Dad has already called twice to check on his baby girl & hopes she'll be home to greet him tonight & not have to stay at the clinic. Thank you all in advance for your prayers for our little calico cyclone! I'll update you when I know more.

The rest of us are doing fine...although less active today since Trixie is out of the house. Monkey & Fluffinella have started to play with each other a little bit so Patches & I have been supervising to make sure Fluffers doesn't get to rough since she's SO much bigger. Monkey is becoming a good little house kitten but still needs corrected when she tries climbing the barnwood that's on our kitchen walls. She's growing like a little weed & her purrsonality is finally coming to the surface as she becomes more comfortable with her status inside. Well got to run because I know mom isn't up to lots of blogging today. Have a pawsome day everyone!
UPDATE ON TRIXIE: 11am ET-The vet just called & they'll be keeping her overnight. Her temp was elevated (which mom told them when she took her in) & they're giving her antibiotics to fight an infection which was causing her to feel so badly. They're going to try to get her to eat (mom told them her favorite foods) & will call back later tonight or tomorrow morning. Hopefully her temp will drop by tomorrow so she can be released but for now she's staying at the clinic under observation.

Cyclonic Monday meows
Hi sweet kitty furiends,
Please bear with me as I do a c/p blog for everyone today so we can catch things up!

It's another cool day around here but we've got lots of sunshine, chirping birds to listen to at the open windows, & enough loving purrs to fill the every heart in the world with happiness! Mom is trying to think of the best way for our new sister MONKEY to have her own page without creating a new account. Unfortunately it will mean dropping one of the kitties we currently have to do it so it is with great regret that we will remove Joseph & let Fluffinella move over there so that Monkey can have the newest profile as her own. You'll be able to watch her grow up like you did me & Fluffinella! Sounds like fun to me...MOL! I'm actually enjoying having her inside...at least part of the time. There are time when I don't want to be followed around so she has been swatted a couple of times but in general I don't mind having her join our inside crew. Fluffinella isn't too sure what to think of her yet so she's still hissing every time she sees her but Zaboo & Patches are getting used to her rubbing against them as she purrs...& are actually liking it most of the time...MOL! She's going to be a laser light chasing fiend, plus mom has already removed her from the barn wood paneling twice today, detached her from the window screen, & picked up the entire basket of kitty toys. Hmmmm...mom said that sounds eerily familiar somehow but surely she couldn't be comparing her to me...or is she? MOL! Dad complained at first, saying 5 kitties in the house was WAY too many but Monkey has worked her charm on him by pawing his leg to be picked up & put in his lap every night. Needless to say he's not mentioned the words 'too many' for a couple of days now...MOL! We've all got different purrsonalities (Fluffers being the grumpiest & least sociable) but none of us are kitties that attack without good reason so Monkey is feeling very comfortable with us. Look for her to join CC officially by tomorrow as Fluffinella moves to take over Joseph's spot in our lineup. Well got to run so will meow at you again soon.

Sweet purrs,

Hi Mr. Boots!
Today is housecleaning day at our house (Ugh!) so my fursister Callie and I are hiding out under the bed until Mom comes in here with the vacuum monster.

My Dad is doing fine, taking his high blood pressure medicine and even enjoying the healthy food Mom has him eating now, so he can hopefully lose a few pounds. My fursister Callie has finished the last of her antibiotics, but she is still running from Mom whenever she sees her. MOL! I guess it will take her a few days to get over her teeth cleaning.

The outside kitties were doing fine this morning, hungry and eager to play with their toys.

I left a vote with purrs and hugs.

~Happy National Mice Cream Day~
We're traveling down each street of the CC community in our own mice cream truck today to celebrate this very special sweet treat day! Listen for the sound of music to tinkle down your street & pounce on out for some purrsonal service by one of the NICE crew. We have any flavor your kitty hearts desire & it's all free so please indulge as much, or as often, as you want. We won't drive home until every kitty has had their fill! Enjoy your sweet cold treats today dear furiends!

NICE Crew mews:
Well mom did it again! She found two young kittens in our yard yesterday & welcomed them with open paws. One is a beautiful black kitty girl about 3-4 months old. She was found WAY up in one of our trees & it took mom over 1/2 hour to coax her down where she could get her hands on it. She seems to like trees a lot so mom is calling her Monkey...MOL! The other kitty looks like a tiny little Patches. She's only about 6 weeks old & is very shy but is doing well eating soft food & FF. She seems very sad to be without her mommy cat but we're hoping that with lots of love & attention that she'll snap out of her sadness & start playing. No name for her yet but it will come in time. Joseph is playing daddy to them & stays close to make sure they don't wander too far or get hurt by Sassee since she's been so grumpy this summer. Her kittens (Daisy Mae & Sandi) would love to play with Monkey but she won't let them...at least not yet. We're hoping in time she'll adjust to the new arrivals but in the meantime mom puts them in the big carrier at night to assure their safety. We tried to return them to the neighbor where they had to have come from but they refused to take them & said we should take them to a shelter, even after they were told that the little tortie needed her mommy cat. Mom was livid when she came back home & said some nasty things (MOL)because she felt they were very cold hearted & uncaring! Oh well...at least we know they'll be safe from their dogs over here & mom will make sure they're well taken care of. Pics of these sweet little furbabies can be seen in Joseph's #221080 gallery so please meow a welcome to the newest additions to the outside NICE crew as you enjoy your mice cream treats today.

Purrs & hugs,
Q Trixie & NICE Crew

Hi Mr. Boots!
My Dad is doing fine. The doctor is treating him for a sinus infection, (which could have been the reason for his losing consciousness) but his high blood pressure is the main concern now. Yesterday, the doctor wouldn't let him leave until his blood pressure was at a comfortable reading. It took most of the day. Dad needs to lose fifteen pounds and he has to try to reduce his stress from work. Mom and Dad have their work cut out. Thanks again for all your well wishes for my family.

My fursister Callie only has a couple days left of taking her medicine after her teeth cleaning last week. Callie isn’t too happy with my Mom, since Mom has been the one to give her that awful stuff, but Callie isn’t resisting as much any more. I think she must know it is almost over.

The outside kitties Whitey and Orangie are doing fine too. They ate up their breakfast this morning and played with Mom and their catnip toys for almost an hour. Our household is almost back to normal. :)

I left a vote with purrs and hugs.

Hi Mr. Boots!
The outside kitties Whitey and Orangie were more interested in playing with their toys this morning than eating. After playtime though, they were both famished and gobbled up their new food.

My Dad goes to the lab today to give more blood before his appointment with his primary doctor on Friday. Dad says he thinks the doctors must be vampires since he had already given a lot of blood at the hospital! Thanks again for all your get well wishes and prayers for my family.

Hi Mr. Boots!
My fursister Callie only has 6 more days of her antibiotics (after having her teeth cleaned), but she really hates it and has been finding some very good hiding places when she knows Mom is looking for her. Too bad the vet can’t manufacture medicine that is tuna or chicken flavored. MOL!

My Dad is doing fine. He has doctor appointments this Thursday and Friday, so hopefully then, him and Mom will find out more about why he passed out.

Whitey and Orangie surprised my Mom with a present this morning. They had a lizard for her! Mom thought it was dead and went to pick it up to throw it away, but it squirmed, Mom screamed and dropped it as it ran away. MOL! Needless to say, my poor Mom started her day off very frazzled.

I left a vote with purrs and hugs. I think all cats hate taking medicine. My Mom says she can't even imagine trying to put eye drops in one of us! Your poor Mom and brother!

YOU KNOW YOU’RE A CAT PERSON IF …

... you have the cat meow on the outgoing message of the answering machine.
... you and kitty have matching outfits.
... your spouse says, "Me or the cat!," and there's no hesitation.

Another hot, steamy day for the NICE Crew
It's already a very hot & humid 84 degrees outside with a predicted high of 92! It wouldn't be so bad if the humidity wasn't driving the 'real feel' of the temperatures up another 10+ degrees! Sammie dog is outside while it's a wee bit cooler but will come in for a nap later & be allowed to roam around. That means we'll have to be trapped in the bedroom because that silly mutt still wants to chase me & Fluffinella. Zaboo is actually the only one that can stay out while she's inside but mom still makes him stay in the bedroom with us, especially since he was sick. I really think mom has chosen him to referee the chase across the bed games that Fluffers & I do when we're trapped! Teehee...a girl can't sit still for too long & mom gets mad if we climb on the shelves or open the closet doors so we have to do something to keep ourselves occupied now don't we? There's nothing better than a good romp & whack game in my opinion & no better victim...err, playmate...than my little sis Fluffinella...MOL!
Zaboo is still eating good & even grabbed at me as I walked past him yesterday. We wrestled for a little bit & then he thought he'd hold me down & clean my ears. I managed to escape his long-legged grasp in the nick of time thanks to Patches coming over to see what we were up to. Unfortunately when I escaped his clutches, Patches got drawn in! She let him romp for about 15 seconds before she raised her paw of justice & glared at him...MOL! It's great to see him acting more like the sweet, lovable Boo Bear kitty we adore!!

Well got to run so mom can get the laundry started. Today I've got another yummy mice cream treat to help ward off the heat everywhere. Everybody grab a cone or dish because I'm serving up Strawberry Shortcake Mice Cream! You can eat it inside where the A/C is running or we've got plenty of shade trees all around the house if you prefer eating cold stuff outside. Enjoy your treat & have a terrific Tuesday!

Sweet purrs,
Q Trixie & NICE Crew

Hi Mr. Boots!
I am happy to report my Dad is feeling better and is insisting on going back to work tomorrow. He has several doctor appointments this week and next, so hopefully him and Mom will find out soon why he passed out on Friday. Thanks again for all your prayers and well wishes.

My sister Callie is recovering quite nicely from her dental cleaning, but she hates her antibiotics and runs from Mom when she sees her coming. She has 7 more days of the awful stuff, but Mom gives us both treats after every dose, so I am encouraging Callie to take her medicine like a good kitty. MOL!

The outside kitties are doing fine. My Mom bought Whitey and Orangie some new canned food called Natural Choice Salmon Pate and they loved it. Our household is almost back to normal :)

Hi Mr. Boots!
My Dad is back home after being in the hospital overnight. He has to wear a heart monitor for a few days and then see a cardiologist this week. Hopefully the doctors can figure out why he passed out. The doctors did discover he has high blood pressure, so he is being treated for that.

My fursister Callie is doing a great job taking her Clindamycin medication after her teeth cleaning. The vet also gave her pain medicine (Metacam) but she doesn’t seem to need it any more and Callie really hates the taste.

It has been a very hectic past few days. We really appreciated your prayers and get-well wishes. CC families are the best.

I left a vote with purrs and hugs. I'm with you buddy. I hate the vet too!

YOU KNOW YOU’RE A CAT PERSON IF …

Hi Mr. Boots!
The weather here today is crazy. It is overcast and drizzly, yet this afternoon the temperature is supposed to hit 88 degrees. I guess that means it will be muggy! I think Callie and I will stay inside on the bay window with the A/C running.

Whitey and Orangie were waiting and ready to eat this morning, along with a couple of raccoons who were waiting across the street. Mom saw them right away and chased them away. They had already cleaned out the dry cat food bowls, so Mom didn’t feel bad. MOL! It’s kind of nice to know they don’t bother the outside kitties.

Tomorrow is D-Day for my fursister Callie (Dentist Day)! I think my Mom gets more nervous than we do about going to the vet. Okay, it’s probably a tie. MOL! Mom is trying not to send out nervous vibes, but she isn’t too successful.

I left a vote with purrs and hugs.

YOU KNOW YOU’RE A CAT PERSON IF …

... your neighbors refer to you as "the crazy one with all the cats."
... you have more pictures of your cats than your kids in your wallet.
... you refer to your cat as your furry child.

Completely different weather than yesterday
but we're not complaining one tiny bit...MOL! Things are still very soggy around here after the torrential downpours & storms we got yesterday. I'd posted on the CMR page (#46883) last night that we were without power for a long time yesterday but right after I did that it went out again...but this time it was only for 1 1/2 hours instead of nearly 8! All of our outside kitties are present & accounted for this morning. They'll probably be heading toward the sunniest & driest parts of the yard today though because it's a chilly 66 right now with a light breeze. It's supposed to warm up to the upper 70s to lower 80s later but right now all of us inside kitties are enjoying having the windows open so we can hear & watch the birds as they happily fly around chirping at the top of their tiny lungs.
I'm super proud of Patches! She actually stayed out during the storms yesterday instead of ducking for cover like she used to. I can't say that about Fluffinella though...MOL! She disappeared until the power came back on last night but this morning she's acting normal & is annoying me like she always does early in the day. Zaboo is doing great!! He's eating like a Siamese piggy cat...MOL! He's also being playful again so I've been pushing him to see how far I can safely go before I'm wrapped in those long legs & kicked silly...MOL! It's great having our fearless leader feeling so much better after last week. He'll be going to see the vet tomorrow for bloodwork to make sure everything is okay but we're hopeful that he'll get a clean bill of health even with the weight loss he suffered. The way he's been eating this week should bring him right back up to where he should be soon. I'm going to nickname him Zapig if he tries to steal my Fancy Feast one more time though...MOL! I don't mind if he cleans it up when I'm done but to shove his face into my bowl when I'm still eating is a good way to get on my bad side for the day...which of course leads to payback from the infamous calico cyclone...MOL! Well got to get pouncing so I can catch up with everyone that's been by to meow at us lately.

Your mice cream treat for today is a...Cotton Candy Mice cream in a waffle cone!! It's a creamier and dreamier version of your favorite fluffy, puffy treat that's swirled in pink and purple for extra cuteness! Enjoy your cool treat for the day dear furiends & I'll meow at you again soon.

Playful purrs,
Q Trixie & NICE Crew

Thank you for pouncing by
to let us know you're back! I hope your pawent(s) had a wonderful time in Milwaukee. Did you go with them or have a kitty sitter like we do? Sorry I'm late getting back to you but my big brother Zaboo has been sick lately with an IBD flare-up. He's starting to feel better each day & is also eating again so hopefully he's on the road to recovery. Well got to run (literally...MOL) because I'm seeing a fly in the kitchen that needs a calico cyclone to catch him. Have a pawsome day & hope to hear from you again soon!

Purrs & hugs,

Bring an ☂ if you come visit us today...
It's been raining all night long & continues this morning & our temps are in the low 60s. Mom has the windows cracked open so I can look outside & smell things but I'm hoping some sunshine will break through the clouds soon & start warming & drying things so we can ship the dog outside. She's barking right now because she was put back in her kennel when she tried to pounce on Zaboo. He met her at the door with a sweet kiss when she was coming in after doing her morning business. She kissed him back but then she had the not so bright idea of trying to hug him with her wet paws. Needless to say that didn't go over well with him or mom! He should be like me & never go near the smelly beast...MOL!
I've been playing with my toys & following mom around the house this morning (like I always do...MOL)but woke her up earlier when Trixie & I were chasing each other across the bed. Nothing better than kitty romping to start a morning...MOL! Patches has been roaming around begging for attention from everyone & Zaboo is trying to claim my spot at the top of the kitty condo for his nap. I'll have to change that idea really quick...MOL!
Well this is the last day of the month so that means my time as the family blogger is over...sigh. I've had fun meowing with all of you but no amount of sweet purrs or kisses could convince my siblings that I should continue amewsing you(more big sighs)so I'm here to meow good-bye until my turn comes around again. The lucky NICE kitty to blog next month will be Trixie but Zaboo's name was drawn again to do the special occasion kitty visits. Don't worry though because I'm sure you'll hear all sorts of wild tales about me from my sister when she's blogging...MOL! Well I've got to go so I can reclaim my napping spot from Zaboo. Have a pawsome Sunday dear furiends & get your homes ready for the return of the calico cyclone next week.

Sweet whisker kisses & a tuna filled vote,
Fluffinella & NICE Crew

P.S. We think the idea of moving the animal channels to FB because of cheating is a very bad idea & hope they'll figure out a better way to fix the issue.

Wander With Whiskers – June 28- San Jose
Do You Know The Way To San Jose?
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Well it seems most people have indeed found the way. San Jose is well known as “The Capital of Silicon Valley", and is the largest city in the Bay Area and Northern California. True to its location in the heart of Silicon Valley, San Jose is now home to the headquarters of many "tech" companies such as Cisco Systems, eBay, and Adobe Systems. San Jose is a mix of offices, shopping, hotels, numerous restaurants and you'll always find a wealth of cultural events at theaters, art galleries, and museums.

Our final train ride will end in San Jose. Detraining here, our Feline Motor Coaches await us, to take us to our hotel, the spectacular Fairmont San Jose. The Fairmont San Jose opened its doors as the first luxury hotel in the Silicon Valley in October 1987 and it remains the jewel of the city's thriving downtown today. A distinctive presence in Silicon Valley, The Fairmont San Jose downtown hotel is a testament to extraordinary service & luxurious lodging. Dining is exceptional here, from the legendary Lobby Lounge to fine American cuisine at the Fountain Restaurant. Opulence is redefined in the luxurious Lobby Lounge. The stellar room features a grand piano with a pianist playing classical and contemporary music to dance the night away or quietly sip cocktails with that special someone. Let’s check-into our rooms and begin our tour of the city.

We’ll visit the Winchester Mystery House, an extravagant maze of Victorian craftsmanship – marvelous, baffling, and eerily eccentric, to say the least. The legend is that Sarah Winchester, Winchester Rifle heiress, was afraid of being cursed by the ghosts of those who had been killed by Winchester guns. She thought that as long as construction of her house continued, the ghosts would be kept at bay. Construction did continue (for 38 years!), resulting in a fantastic house full of mazes, stairs that go nowhere and other odd architecture. Letters were recently discovered that show that she kept remodeling the house as an excuse to keep relatives from visiting. Beware: visitors have reported seeing paranormal objects in the house, and the only way you can confirm their claims is to see them yourself!

Back aboard the Feline Motor Coaches, we'll end our tour of San Jose with a quick trip to "Los Gatos", a Spanish name meaning "The Cats". This quaint town is noted for its small, pedestrian- friendly downtown, boutique shops, upscale restaurants & antique/art shopping. Let’s stop for lunch at the Los Gatos Gardino Fresco, sit outside and enjoy Los Gatos small town charm.

It’s time to head back to our hotel. I hope you will all have fond memories of our trip to California and perhaps you will think about coming back to pay a visit to me and my family.
