How We Met

She kept coming to visit us all summer long, she loves our dog Shadow. I would be out walking Shadow and all of a sudden Dot would be there!!! But what really cinched the deal was helping her dad work on the tractor one day, I think he found her irresistable!! She was very sick when she came to us. She had an URI after about 2 months of Antibiotics she was better and could finally meet Tucker & Mouse. Tucker & Dot are the best of Buddy's , Dot and Mouse are still working on it.

Hi Dame Dot and family!
We hope you had a nice weekend. We had the house to ourselves on Sunday while Mom and Dad were out running errands. We had on and off showers on Saturday and are expecting rain again today. It hasn’t been much, but we’ll take whatever we can get. Mom took Callie and me on our stroller walk this morning so we could fill the bucket by the creek with water. The creek is still dry.:(

Whitey and Orangie are doing well, spending a lot more time in the backyard. Hopefully when it starts to get warmer, they’ll both learn to use their outside cat beds, at least in the evenings.

Oh no! More snow and rain?! When will spring arrive?! We're so glad to hear Tuck is feeling better. Give him a soft hug for us. Good for sweet Maizy! We're glad the kitties are playing with her. What's mew on your pages? We're trying to guess?!

Give sweet Shadow a warm hug for us. We have your family in our prayers.

We left a vote with purrs, hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

Independence =^.^=
~~~~~
I should have
been named Independence
because that's how I live my life.
No human ever orders me around.
I'll sneak away
spend the day in hiding
who cares if they're looking for me.
Perhaps there's a time I might decide
to give my human a treat.
I'll jump on her lap
let her stroke and pet
turn on my purring machine.
I truly delight
to rub my nice human
and circle her legs with great joy.
To those in the know
I look independent
but there's really a softy inside.

Hi Dot!
We had to leave "Spittin' Sue" behind in Cairo...we're on a luxury cruise along the Nile now.....cruisin' the Nile in style, we are. ;) Oh do you think Tuck would really have made you do the heavy smelly shoveling? Those boys! Geesh!

We are surely hoping that whatever is stuck in his tooth comes out soon. Hate to hear that it's still red and swollen. Let's take him a heating pad to soothe it.

Have a peaceful evening! Big hugs!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
We’re running a little bit late today. My Mom and I were working on my blogs when she got a call from Ebony and Sugar Bear’s Dad, next door. Their Mom Abarna had a doctor’s appointment today, but he was having car problems. My Mom would have lent him one of our cars, but both cars are stick shift and their Dad doesn’t know how to use a clutch. (Dad drives the automatic van to work because of his ankle.) That’s okay; my Mom drove Abarna to see her doctor. Abarna is doing okay, still congested, but nothing that a lot of rest won’t cure.

When Mom came back home, we were all sitting in the bay windows downstairs patiently waiting for her. Mom said we all looked so well behaved and innocent. She looked around to see if we had gotten into anything. Nope! We were purrfect little angels. MOL! Mom opened a fresh bag of Wildside Salmon for us and there were treats all around. Yay!

We hope Tucker is feeling better and the medicine is helping Give him and sweet Shadow warm hugs for us. We have your family in our prayers sweetie. Stay warm.

Here’s a vote with purrs, hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

Cats Don't Care =^.^=
~~~~~
Cats don't care what dogs think
they just look down and sorta wink.
Perch themselves way up high
the dog barks and starts to cry.
It's really not fair, those agile cats
hiding in places just like rats.
The dog wants to play, join in the fun
chase that cat, make it run.
But cats care less, don't need to play fair
like to tease, don't have a care.
Poor dog sits and wonders why?
Sly old cat naps with a sigh.
Dog keeps guard, waiting for a twitch
cat doesn't move, not even for an itch.
The game goes on, cat unaware
the dogs just pleads, please care.

Hi Dot!
MOL that made mom chuckle, the visual image of K-Tuck sweeping the camel doo-doo under the Purrsian rug. Maybe we should bring "Spittin' Sue" back with us after all. I'm sure the airline won't give us any trouble about that.

Gosh, we certainly hope there is nothing in Tucker's teeth to cause concern. Hope to hear he doesn't give mom too hard of a time....oh dear....he's not even speaking to dad. He must be major ticked off. Let's take him some chicken noodle soup and some healing hugs.

Emmi is doing well. The treatment plan is doing what we were hoping. Don't know how long she will be with us, but if we can keep her happy and active, it's all good.

Have a purrfectly wonderful evening! Big hugs!!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
My Mom was trimming my fur this morning and noticed quite a bit of gray fur on me. She didn’t know cats sometimes go gray as part of the natural aging process. Since I’m a tuxedo cat, the gray fur is more noticeable, especially around my face. Mom says I look dignified. MOL! Hey, I still feel like a kitten!

Oh poor Tucker! We hope the medicine makes him better. My sister Callie HATES the pink medicine! She always spits it back up at Mom! We'll be praying for Tucker.

Give sweet Shadow a hug for us. We're glad she not mad at us. She is such a pretty girl. We always have all of you in our prayers. Stay safe and warm.

We read this wonderful pet cat poem we wanted to share with our furiends.
Here’s a vote with purrs, hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

Prayer For My Cat =^.^=
~~~~~
Treat me kindly, dear master. Accord me the courtesy due to a cat — and I for my part will love you, amuse you and cheer your heart as only a cat can do.

Give me a sunny spot to sleep in when morning dawns and I will warm your lap on cold evenings.

Respect my independence and my need to walk alone at times and I will look after myself, so that you may come and go as you please.

Speak to me in our secret kitty language, let me hear my name sung in the music of your voice, and I will meow happily in sweet harmony with you.

Stroke my fur gently and lovingly and I will soothe you with the soft purrs that can only come from a happy cat.

Indulge my curiosity and I will show you the joys of bird watching, star gazing and other kitty pleasures.

Play with me and see me rejoice! Toss a humble ball of yarn and I will delight you with my cleverness and acrobatic leaps.

But do not laugh at me or allow me to be teased for there is nothing I prize more than my dignity.

Keep my surroundings neat and clean and I will be fastidious in my habits.

Feed me and be fair and I will teach you how to tell “kitty time” by instinct and tummy tunes.

And when I am old and the time comes to say farewell, hold me gently in your arms and I will go without a whimper.

For with you I am trusting, safe and secure. A cat who walked alone but loved you with a full and happy heart.

Hello Dot
What’s mew with you? I am napping in my heated bed. It is a very cold (35 degrees) & rainy ☂ day here in south Mississippi. Tonight we are forecast to receive a freezing rain/sleet/ice mixture with possibly one inch of snow❄ We hope not because down here, we don’t “do” frozen stuff too well.

Monday was fluids day for MerryBelle. All went well. She will get more fluids tomorrow. Please keep my sweet sister in your prayers. We are very worried about her.

Stay warm & comfy cozy.
Kisses,

Hi Dear Dot!
Oh you don't think K-Tuck would enjoy stall duty, eh? Maybe I shouldn't bring "Spittin' Sue" back to the Pinto. WE can leave her in Egypt. MOL Jakar won the "Get Worshipped" trip when we had the Snowball Classic and he invited me to go with him. Just in case he needed extra worshipping. Tee hee I can do that.

Goodness you and Maizy sound like you are having the time of your lives. I'm so glad the two of you are buddies! That sounds so fun! OOPS mom almost got in the way? Geesh, she will need to watch out!

Have a peaceful evening - or a wild one! Big hugs!!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
My sister Callie has almost stopped growling at Whitey and Orangie every time they get close to her. Last night when our pawrents were getting ready for bed, Mom walked into the bedroom and was shocked to see Callie, Whitey and Orangie lying on the bed. Sure, Callie was on the opposite of the bed, but Callie usually waits until Mom gets in bed before she jumps up into her spot. Mom was so happy! (Geez, it doesn’t take much!) I of course, am always neutral and get along with everyone. I knew the girls would come around eventually. MOL!

We're all just like you sweetie. We never sit still long enough for Mom to take pictures of us. If Mom wants to get a picture, she'll have to be quick on her feet! Your Mom sure did get a great one of you. I bet she was doing a happy dance afterwards!

Give Shadow a warm hug for us and tell her we apologize for calling her a "him" on our last blog. Sometimes that Mom of ours has her senior moments. Hee, hee! We love you guys and are hoping it warms up for you soon.

ADVICE TO A FERAL FRIEND BY FELIX DOMESTICUS
~~~~~
You're thin and hungry yet again,
Your coat is rough and wet with rain,
And during Winter's frost and snow
You will have nowhere warm to go.

You really are a stupid cat,
To tolerate a life like that,
Take my advice, my friend and get
A really well-trained human pet.

I know they're thin upon the ground,
But, nonetheless they can be found.
And you would have a proper home,
With comforts you have never known.

Well-trained pets are quiet and kind,
Obey requests and never mind
How often you go in and out.
They wait on you and never shout.

Fresh milk and water, meat and fish,
Would be provided as you wish;
You would not need to hunt for food;
Only for fun, when in the mood.

Such luxury would turn your head,
Chairs by the fire; a soft, warm bed,
And God made humans with a lap,
Especially to nurse a cat.

So search the neighbourhood with care,
It may take time, but don't despair,
You'll find it well worthwhile to get,
A first-class, loving, human pet.

Hi Dame Dot and family!
There’s not too much going on here today except grocery shopping and house cleaning. That means the vacuum monster has been let loose! Our weather is overcast and windy today. When Mom took Callie and me on our stroller walk this morning, the leaves were blowing all over the place keeping us cats on high alert. MOL!

My Mom went next door to check on our neighbor and Ebony and Sugar Bear. The cats were napping in the bay window and their Mom Abarna is getting stronger every day.

That's a great profile picture of you dear furiend. You look so beautiful and elegant! We hope you are all staying safe and warm in the extreme weather you're experiencing. We have all of you in our prayers. Tell Shadow to run in and out as fast she can when she does her business!

Just A Cat =^.^=
~~~~~
She is - just a cat.
A very small presence
doesn't take up much space.
Large green eyes
much too big for her face.
She is - just a friend.
Happy to be greeting you
while purring a tune
improving how you feel
and never, too soon.
She is - just a joy.
Guarding windows
sleeping on the bed
chasing unseen ghosts
until she's fed.
She is - just yours.
No other will do
her choice is clear
with anyone else
she will just disappear.

Happy Monday
This week will be our last week for our catpaign. It has been a wonderful experience actively blogging. In the past years Mom has been silently voting with just a few blogs from time to time. Honestly, Mom does not blog much but this catpaign has made Mom very happy with the positive feedback and appreciation of our blogs from:
being a first time feline pawrent
to meeting our furmily
to the unforgettable experience visiting a cat cafe and
to the heartache of losing a fur baby.
Last Saturday, we remembered our sweet ole Bait's seventh month passing. Mom still has a heavy heart knowing he is no longer with us but because someone we love is in heaven,
there is a little bit of heaven in our home.
Today, Monday, I started the week with a firm nose kiss on Mom's nosey. I know this act makes her happy among many other things. So let's start the week by choosing to be happy and always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.

Stay happy,
be positive
and do great things!
Good morning and
have a happy Monday!

xoxo

Come visit me, Hami.

yesterday we hit the mid 40s and melted/settled some of the feet of snow 6 feet to be exact on the ground and now we're the flop side with more siberian cold coming in this morning as it was still pretty warm out there when janet got up earlier on this morning and will drop like a bomb and be only into the lower teens for highs today! tonight will be the coldest this winter so far between -20 to -15 as our current low is -10 which we have tied 3 times! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Dame Dot and family!
The weather is a bit windy and overcast with no rain in sight. We are all doing fine, catnapping in the windows. My Mom made a trip to Petco this morning for our food and a few treats. Today is our Dad’s last day of vacation after a week off. He’s been going with us on our stroller walks and we’ll miss him.

We hope you are all staying safe and warm. Poor sweet Shadow! It must be rough being a doggie and having to use the bathroom outside. Brrrr! Give Shadow and the family warm hugs for us.

Found A New Home =^.^=
~~~~~
Left by the road, nobody cared
I really hoped that I would be spared.
Out for a walk, along came a friend
heard my cry, I knew she would bend.
Called kitty kitty, then picked me up
I was so small like a little tea cup.
Went for a ride, found a new home
no longer lost, never alone.

Hi dear Dot!
Isn't that super that Angel Gracie got the big #20 grand! I need to get a big prize for her to win. Mom had her eye on it, too, and was wondering who would pounce on that one. I am so tickled that A Gracie pulled K-Tuck into the pink limo, how could we pawty without our favorite cabana boys? Tee hee. And here we are celebrating the Chinese New Year today. Guess we better keep the pink limo gassed up and hope it has snow tires. Gosh it's been bad here; we got that white out Saturday, too, and mom had to drive home from work in it. She called ahead to make sure sis was home and told sis do NOT go out.

Yesterday and today, bitter cold, more snow and slick roads. The schools were cancelled but sis had to go to her college classes.

I'm bringing Shadow more healing wishes and hope she isn't hurty. Bless her heart, we think of her often. Emmi is doing well and you wouldn't even know anything was wrong with her right now. Hope that lasts for a while. No guarantees.

Mom says thanks so so much for the sweet hug and we are sending a big one back for your dear mom!

Have a super evening! Big hugs!

Hi dear Dot!!
How funny you and Maizy stand up on your hind legs and have boxing matches! Mom thinks that would be an internet sensation if your mom could get a video. We have Shadow in our hearts; sure do hope and pray she can get some nutrition. Bless the sweeties' puppy heart anyway. Treasure those sweet doggies who love their kitty sibs, she is a special one. Emmi loves the kitties too. She had a check up today and Dad reports things are working according to the plan. We are holding off the inevitable but its working for now.

I'm so glad you, Tuck and the girls joined us in the pink limo last night. We sure did need a fun night of frivolity didn't we? Steve was a hoot strutting his stuff to win the beads. Tee hee

Have a super evening! Big hugs! !

Wow! Who would have thought CC would still be around so I could get my 16,000th vote?! Whoo hoo! Thank you so much dear furiend. You and your family are the best!

Sorry we haven’t been by to meow to you lately. My Mom has been helping out next door with Ebony, Sugar Bear and their Mom Abarna while she recuperates. My pawrents have also been working to get their taxes done and filed this week, while my Dad is on school break this week.

Needless to say, us cats have been neglected, but Mom promises to make it up to us. Humph! We’ll see. I’m working on my list! MOL!

Try to stay warm dear furiends. 15 degrees is way too cold! Give your family warm hugs for us and tell Shadow we said meow.

Window of Time =^.^=
~~~~~
She sits at the window
frozen in time.
What does she really see?
Ghosts from the past
a thousand years old
creatures we don't understand.
Tail twitching, body poised
not moving an inch
mesmerized by the world outside.
A quiet little mouse,
white tailed deer,
or shadows from wind blown trees.
I look, I stare
but I just don't see
the view from cat's eyes so intense.
Hours pass, the cat stands guard,
sky bleeding night black to dawn gray.
Night after night
at the window of time
what stories unfold out of sight?

looks like
everybody from the midwestern to the gulf/southern/mid atlantic states are now sharing in some of what we've been going through and hate to say it, "high time too"! they'll be back warm by monday though as the first front went all the way south through the keys and the next one won't make it as far but to central florida, but next week we'll be warming to the 20s sure beats the single and teens for daytime highs we've been getting the past week or two and nights below 0! speaking of which we were down to -4 here this morning and the other morning nearly passed our current low of -10 here but tied it for the second time this winter. have 2 more mornings to do that the next few days before we warm back up to the 30s by this weekend like we'll be melting stuff today a bit and we're happy about that! just minor relief as we have a whopper storm coming this weekend might be another 3 day storm 5-8" of heavy wet slop or a sinker to freezing rain making life miserable once again for one and all here! with janet being told not to shovel due to an aggrivated pull on her left side nat's been left to do it all, and jaent's dec-ided to do some of it on sunday and then call it quits hoping the snow blower won't quit as it doesn't like the heavy wet crap and quits most of the time and won't run! sandy,ab,haley angels

Hello Dot
How was your weekend? We enjoyed a nice time. Mommy took the day off from work on Friday, just to spend the day with us. Look on the bottom of my page & you will see the Valentine's "gift" that I gave to Mommy. tee hee! (Yes I really did pee a ♥ in the litterbox)! I am a girl of many talents! Can you believe that Mommy actually took a photo of it? Next thing you know, it will appear in my scrapbook. No privacy I tell you!

Have a lovely day.

it's darnedright cold out there
with that wind cranking up like it is, supposed to die down over night tonight allowing temps to really drop lke a bomb might surpass our current low of -10 we set a few weeks ago! then warming up gradually all this week and 2 more snowstorms in the pipeline one tues/wed 4" there and another heavy wet slop by next weekend don't know how much for that one yet depends on the track! janet went into work surpriseing everybody as she usually calls in with 3" of snow which is what we had when she left around 6:30 this morning. sandy,ab,haley,angels

happy valentine's day!
yes, more snow and most will be tonight through tomorrow morning meaning more than likely janet will be home from work and out-side in the cold shoveling before the really bad stuff comes in, but then once she's home from work tomorrow will be back outside helping nat with the roof and gutters unless she's on top of the snowbanks shoveling them down again. 6" is what we're supposed to get and another possible one wed., with another whopper next sunday. seems it never wants to end! sandy,ab,haley,angels

not to worry..no problem..just make sure your Mom has that nice strong cup of coffee..teehee..
i might let your Mom watch furkless any ol' time..sometimes we all need a break..she is pretty high maintenance..either that, or Mom has forgotten what it;s like to have someone that young around here..course, Mom was a lot younger when our human brother was that age...funny how different things are when you're younger..
thanks for your complement of furless, though..Mom thinks she's pretty special.

Hey Dear Dot!
Well I gotta admit the old blogger *does* get behind on my correspondence. She says it will get worse before it gets better but reminds herself she mostly likes what she does. And the mew office is comfy and mighty pleasant. I'm pretty sure there are worse jobs.

Emmi just had her second Chemo round and dad took her for a check Tuesday and will take her again in a week. The onc, dad and sis will discuss effectiveness and what options are; if not looking like it is helping. Good thing is mom noticed a big uptick in her spunk so mom says we still have hope. So glad to hear Shadow is still hanging in there and hope she continues to do so. Dad's sister just had to let her beloved dog go; she is devastated. He was everything to her, constant companion and seeing eye. Literally. She is so lost without him.

Hope they can figure out about Daizies fur and stop her from losing it. I lost some on my back end and mom worries that it's stress since I hate the coyote so much. I am getting braver...... she is afraid of me when mom or dad are holding me. But she still thinks chasing kitties is ok. Mom tells her it's NOT.

Have a peaceful and relaxing evening! Big hugs to you and family!!

we've got
4 more chances of snow 2 of light fluffy stuff 1" today and the first siberian cold front, then 1-3" light stuff with another siberian cold front on both days this weekend and then warming up next week starting tues-fri upper 20s to mid 30s so a nice melt will start back up as we had some of that the past 2 days with lower 30s. catch for next week is a noreaster on tues/wed so we don't know how much and what type of storm it'll be either heavy wet stuff or a sinker to all rain. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Dame Dot and family!
We apologize for not being able to meow to all our CC furiends, but Mom has been helping our next door neighbor take care of the cats, Ebony and Sugar Bear, whom are both doing fine. Their Mom Abarna is still in the hospital, and probably will be there for a few more days. She looks better but the doctor wants to keep a watchful eye on her congested lungs. Thank you for your prayers and get well wishes. My Mom has passed them along to Abarna who smiles when she hears about the CC furiends who are praying for her.

The sun has been shining,- no more rain in sight, but the creek still has a little bit of water flowing in it. Mom finally took Callie and me for a walk in our cat stroller this morning. Whitey and Orangie are fine, still enjoying their time in the backyard exploring, but not yet staying outside long enough to cat nap.

Oh dear furiend, we know you must all be so tired of winter. Try to stay warm sweetie. Give everyone a warm hug for us and tell them we have all of you in our prayers. Give sweet Shadow a warm kitty kiss for us too.

We left a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and prayers for those in need.

CLEANLINESS IS NEXT TO... =^.^=

Just as I had passed my tongue
Over every inch of me;
Stroked, brushed, rubbed, scoured,
Cleaned, burnished, and polished to an even sleekness,
You touched me,
And now it's to do
All over again.

Hi Dame Dot and family!
Ebony and Sugar Bear’s Mom Abarna is in the hospital with pneumonia, so Mom is taking care of the kitties at their home. Their Mom was suffering from a bad cold, which turned out to be much worse. Her son is staying at the hospital with her until she comes home. We’ll keep you posted.

We did get a lot of rain and wind over the weekend, enough to make the creek run a little bit. But the rain is over for now and temperatures in the mid 70’s are expected later this week.

We hope your family is staying safe and warm where you live. Give sweet Shadow a warm hug for us and let your family know they are always in our prayers.

Hi Dame Dot & family!
It finally started to rain here around noon. The temperature is warm, in the sixties, but the rain is really coming down. We hope it lasts a while. This is purrfect weather for catnapping in our windowsill beds.

Hee, hee, hee! We are all just like you kitties! When Mom's opens a box that has presents for us, we all like to fuss and play with the box, sometimes more than our gift! MOL! That can be very upsetting to our Mom. Mom always threatens to just get us empty boxes for Christmas and our birthdays, but it hasn't happen yet. We have her well trained.

Wow! You have woodpeckers hanging off your birdfeeders?! I bet you kitties are licking your chops if you can see them. My Mom would love to see one up close. Do they look like Woody Woodpecker? MOL! (My Mom and her old cartoons. Geez!)

Well, we're hoping that you guys don't get hit with another bad snowstorm. We're keeping all of you in our prayers. Give Shadow and your precious family warm hugs for us.

Aw, thanks for the nice compliments on the royal picture my Mom and I made. You are such very special furiends. We love you!

DADDY'S CAT =^.^=
~~~~~
Daddy's asleep now in his favorite chair,
He looks very lonely, just lying there;
His lap looks so empty, he breathes a deep sigh.
Quick, jump, little kitty, sing your purr lullaby.

They say Daddy was not a cat person before,
That is, until you came through the door.
Now he can't go to sleep without you very near,
With your soft, velvet paw and your purr full of cheer.

Settle in little kitty, cuddle up, snuggle tight,
For Daddy needs love, especially this night;
It's been a hard day at his job, don't you know,
And he's tired and worn from the strife and the woe.

So give him your best, he needs it just now,
Comfort him, kitty, and give him your vow
To always be near him, I know in your heart
You'll love him forever 'til death do you part.

-Dutch Carrie

Hi Dame Dot and family!
It really does look like rain is on the horizon for us. It was cloudy and windy on our stroller walk this morning. The sound of the leaves blowing along the trail kept Callie and me on high alert. My Mom laughed at us and told us to relax. We filled the water bucket by the creek in case it doesn’t rain until tonight. We stopped when we heard a loud woodpecker, coming from a tall tree. We couldn’t see him, but he sounded like he was chopping the tree down. MOL! I told Mom we need to bring binoculars next time.

We all got to spend some time in the backyard, but the wind kept kicking up and scaring us, so we finally all decided to come in and claim our catnapping spots by the windows. Ebony and Sugar Bear’s Mom has a very bad chest cold, so Mom is making some chicken soup for her and for dinner tonight. Mom always boils a separate chicken breast for us kitties. Yummy!

Oh look at you and K. Tucker in your precious profile picture! Did you kitties tear apart that box?! MOL! Bravo to your camera person! Lucky there was a camera nearby!

Thank you for the compliments on my picture for King Buddy sweetie. You are such a dear furiend. My Mom isn't too good at using Photoshop, but with my paws helping, we made it happen!

More snow?! Your poor family must be so tired of it. We hope the next snowstorm isn't quite as bad. Tell Shadow we said meow and give the whole family warm hugs for us.

We hope all our CC furiends and their families are staying warm and safe.

Cats On Birds =^.^=
~~~~~
They're difficult to eat;
you can crush their hollow bones,
but the feathers choke you,
and the real bird's so much smaller
than they look with those tails and wings.
The game's the thing.

Cats with no training whatsoever
coolly perform the feats of acrobats.
We excel in every possible move
on the gameboard: we play to win.
Birds are the pieces that fly off the board
into their own dimension
while we stare and switch our tails,
gravity-bound.

Yet whether by accident or skill,
sometime against all odds you'll catch,
pierce, hold the trashing wings,
master the powers of air. It's worth
a lifetime's stalking, pouncing, getting fooled.
Feathers be damned.

Hello Dot
What’s mew with you today? It is a chilly & windy day here in south Mississippi. I am very thankful for my safe & warm home and my heated bed. You & I are very blessed to have such wonderful furever homes. We always pray for the kitties who are not as fortunate as we are.

Today was fluids day for MerryBelle. All went well. Nana & Mommy just might get the hang of that after all!

Stay warm & comfy cozy. Happy Belated Birthday to your Dad.
Kisses,

finally.....
all the outside clean up from the last storm got finished yes-terday and more snow due in this morning means janet will crawl to and from work. she'll do as much of the clean up as she can after she's home which likely will take all afternoon. more com-ing in this weekend a foot or more possible. sandy,ab,haley, angels

Hi Dot!
Thanks for the update on your mew girls! Glad Maizy was back to her fun self soon after. Yes, your mom can understand that Daizy was independent for pawsibly a long time before she found your house, and she has street smarts and hasn't learned to trust the humans like we have. I never knew any differently; was around humans all my life; in fact I was a bottle baby so I think of humans as my pawrents. Daizy has a much much different catitude. With time and patience, she will learn to trust the folks and enjoy being inside more and more. Sounds like Maizy has already learned all she needs to know about having fun inside. MOL

Mom is doing ok..........is working long hours and Saturdays now. It's that time of year. Bringing some healing wishes for Shadow and some cheerful thoughts and wishes for mom.

Have a purrfectly wonderful evening! Big hugs!!

Hi Dame Dot and family!
My Mom took Callie and me for a walk this morning and we said to meow to our little yappy furiend and his jogger. We filled the water bucket back up by the creek and saw a couple of squirrels along the way. Then Mom made a trip to Petco for us. Mom had ten dollars in Petco rewards she needed to use. I gave her my list and Mom didn’t forget a thing. Whoo hoo! We hope you’re having a nice, relaxing day too.

Thank you for your kind meows dear furiend. We miss Boo Kitty and her Mom too and we always have them in our prayers. I did make a mew picture for our King Buddy and I sent it off to him today. I hope he likes it.

Give Shadow a warm hug for us. We always have him and your family in our nightly prayers.

Hi Dame Dot and family!
The sun is shining here today, but it’s also house cleaning day and the noisy vacuum monster has been let loose. Since my Mom doesn’t feel comfortable yet letting Whitey and Orangie out in the backyard unsupervised, we all had to be holed up in the bedroom until she was finished vacuuming. Not fair!

Good mews is we’re expecting rain this Friday through Sunday. Whoo hoo! We’ll believe it when we see it. We have our paws crossed.

Thanks for the compliment on King Buddy's picture, but I guess I should have asked Boo Kitty for permission to use one of my Royal pictures that her Mom made for me. I got my paw slapped for that, but I was quick to send Boo Kitty and her Mom my apologizes. I just wanted King Buddy to enjoy the beautiful artwork her Mom made for all the CC Kings and Queens. I just didn't think it through.:(

We're so glad to hear Maizy, Daizy and Shadow are doing well. We always have them and your sweet family in our prayers.

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!
I'm not 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.
