How We Met

A lady at work had told me about a cat hanging around her house. She called him Roger and said she had too many cats would I like to come by to see him. My husband and I fell in love and we changed his name to Felix, because I didn't want Roger Miller.

1/31/13 Thursday--- The Time Grows Near!
Barney here. The temperature here is +4, with the wind -20! Q.A.Sugar has contacted us and requests an early Coronation Ceremony. Details are being set-up as I speak and we hope to inform you before this goes out today. News flash! Q.A.Sugar just contacted us and says that 6pm her time would work. That would be 5pm EST/ 4pm C/ 2pm Pacific. The Ceremony will be rather brief on the CMR page #46883, but with a reception after. After 6:30pm Central time tonight, you may come to Pawty on my page #74382. Zeus has promised to work on the decorating and is asking all Orange cats to assist, probably with TPing the premises, not that we don't trust him. Hefty has already asked Ms Chyna Doll to be the royal chef, so you know the food will be topnotch! Its been a long, but inspiring Catpaign and we have all enjoyed it immensely! All of you have been so encouraging and giving kind praise about our rescue stories. Mom is feeling humbled with your comments, because she only does what is necessary and she knows how to do. We are all humbled by all your votes of confidence and I hope honor you as your King of February.

Not sure where we will go in the month ahead, but trust inspiration will find us. We have been informed that the royal blogging days are Tuesday and Thursday. We will surely visit this weekend on Caturday or Sunday to let you know how our move in to the Castle went and what events are planned for the week ahead. Other days we hope to do a lot of more purrsonal blogging and visiting all the kitties in our Kingdom. Please join in the spirit of Love this Month of February and visit as many of of the sick or otherwise struggling CC families as you are able. Take time to visit new kitties and hunt up old friends you may have lost contact with. Some inactive kitties may still check pages occasionally, so just leave a note and let them know they are in your thoughts and prayers. Be ready for February Fun in the month ahead!

See you at the Coronation, if you are able or semi- live blogging on Barney's page#74382 after about 6:30pm Central time tonight. No early blog tomorrow--- move in day. We will tell you all about it on the weekend.

1/29/13 Good Tuesday Morning from Barney-- +31
Last Tuesday of January? Got fitted for robes last night! Sure is a strange feeling.Kind of warm here again today, but they promise by tomorrow night we will be back in the sub-zero range. Just doesn't feel like a real Minnesota Winter without it! Hope all of you are ready for a real mystery today, because the story is a strange one.

I do hope someday mom can get the pictures changed to digital, so we can post them. The cat in today's story was named Midnight and when mom fostered her as a kitten, she did not have a speck of white on her. She was cute and friendly and soon had a new forever home or so we thought. The problem started when she was five months old and went for her big girl surgery. All went well or so it seemed, but the next morning her pawrents noticed some of the dissolving stitches had come out. They immediately called the vet and brought her in. By the time she got to the vet all the stitches were out and her intestines were exposed, requiring immediate emergency surgery! Now her condition was such that it was even debated whether she could be saved or not. The vet did his best, but had to remove all of the bowel and most of the small intestine due to contamination. The adoptive family was very upset and called mom,because they were not sure they could care for Midnight. She would require a special diet, vitamin supplements and other medications, possibly for life. When she returned home, she also had bad diarrhea and was not always able to make it to her potty box on time.

After trying to care for Midnight for less than a week, the family decided it was best to return Midnight to mom, since she had more experience in caring for a cat with special needs. At first Midnight had to be kept caged, was on Imodium AD and a number of other medications, which controlled the condition, but did not cure it. Mom was concerned about all the medications and Midnight's lack of progress. She decided to contact a holistic vet friend, who had helped with Pasha towards the end of his life.

Whoa, we are running out of space here! You know what that means-- stay tuned tomorrow and the best is yet to come. Don't fret, its a good end, I promise! Mom will see what she can do about the pictures too. Have a Super Tuesday! Barney and all.

1/28/13 Good Monday Morning from Barney!
Where am I?? Oh yes, sitting at the top of our tallest livingroom cat tree getting ready to dictate to mom. Hefty and Molly are at her side, hopefully checking for accuracy and details. Their eyes are closed?? must be scanning info from mom's brainwaves... The weather here is much warmer +30 with white stuff on the ground. Cold white stuff. Mom went out in the yard last night and allowed me to come out with the dogs. Super-sized flakes! Nature is amazing and all I want is to adjust the temp a bit!

Our story today is that of a cat now known as Angel Whiskers and no relationship to any CC cat here or across the Bridge. He belonged to a friend of mom's, who mom occasionally kittysits for. Mom even remembers when he was first adopted, because she was the one, who made it possible. Another lady called the rescue hotline on a night mom was checking the calls. The lady had found a handsome charcoal tuxedo, declawed cat, and was not able to keep it. She did not know what to do. Mom knew her friend Phyllis was looking for a cat and she decided to call her, before checking for a foster home. Phyllis decided to go see the cat, so she and her then young daughter went with mom the next day to see the cat and ended up taking it home. Everything worked out well, but because Phyllis had family out of town, mom promised to do any kittysitting needed.

Today's story takes place a year or two later, not sure, but in the meantime Whisker's family had also adopted a red Beta fish, we will call Finny, not remembering his real name. Whiskers loved Finny and always carefully supervised his feeding and bowl water changes. Now mom had also had occasionally Beta fish and was not worried when Phyllis asked if she could take care of Whiskers and Finny, while she was on an out of town trip to visit family. The guestroom was available and they were moved in for a week. Whiskers seemed to remember mom, who frequently visit him in his home. The problem came the next morning, when mom came in to feed both of them. Whiskers was very happy to see his food, but when mom turned to take care of Finny, He hissed and went to stand in front of the bowl to prevent mom from touching it. He was protecting his fish from mom! Mom had to back off and sit down to have a talk with him. He may have been nervous, sensing the other cats and dogs outside the room (us), but mom really believes he was protecting his fish, who he would watch for hours at a time. She had to initiate some play with Whiskers and offer him treats until he finally relaxed enough for her to approach and feed his beloved Finny. As the week progressed, mom was able to care for Finny and even change the water in his bowl, but always carefully supervised by Whiskers. What a story mom had for her friend, when she came to retrieve the pets and, would you believe, they still talk about it to this day!

So there you have it, the story for today. Have a Meowrvelous Monday!

1/26/13 Another Happy Caturday from Barney!
My last of the Catpaign??? 0 degrees here in the frozen North! Scarey, Scarey all of it --- not really, as we are all furrends. Its been quite an experience and we loved every minute. A big apology to those we miss with our blog. Mom is not always the most organized c/p er. She tries to double check, but makes mistakes. We try to check in the evening too, so if we see your note on Barney's page and mom hasn't gone to bed early, we will still deliver. Also, we are always posted on CMR and Barney's Inspiration page. Do thank you all for your patience. Mom is also changing our data plan for our wireless to get more data for less of the green papers that Hefty wishes she would give to us, because he says they are really tasty!

Well, Today we have finished talking about our current family, but have a few choices as we go back in history. Cats and dogs are not the only critters mom has rescued in the past. A few of you may have met our Angel rats on SAC. Yes, rats and no, we did not discover they were delicious! For the most part we only socialize through the bars of their cage/home. Angel Max did get out once and, yes, we kitties, Barney, Molly and Hefty even visited a bit until mom woke up and discovered the situation. No, she did not get a picture, but wishes she had. She just got too rattle and scooped Max up, scaring him and getting bit in the process. First she came downstairs, having just got up to let the dogs out and trying to wake up to get ready for work. She walked in the living room and went to say good morning to our rat, as was her habit, only he wasn't there and the door to the cage was open. She began to panic and search with her eyes--- she discovered us, all three kitties sitting in a line--- and, Max sitting in the middle! Now she double panicked! Her instinct was that if he ran, he was a goner. Possibly correct, but we will never tell. What a scene and no camera close by. She was not going to hunt for one either. Carefully she approached Max and he started to head for something to hide under... We were given a very stern, "Don't do it!" Awww Mom! Well, she grabbed Max, got bit, but didn't let go and put him back in his cage. Now she put twist ties on his door too. Talk about not trusting us! We are surely insulted!

Sorry for such a late morning today and do hope its a wonderful Caturday for all. Mom hopes to relax. Her cousin Janet, by the way, passed her CNA test with flying colors on the first try! Thanks to all those CC prayers!
Have a Super Day and we will see you tomorrow. Remember we want Sunday to be a day to answer your questions about anything--- help us out here! Love you--- your friend Barney.

1/24/13 Another Frosty Thursday from Barney! -7
Feels like -20 they say--- guess I'll stay in my fuzzy donut bed and dictate to mom. Mom went to the post office yesterday and says she will stay home today.

I talked about myself yesterday and many of you said you could relate to the dental issues. We should remind our Pawrents February is pet dental month--- please check our mouths and take care of any issues. Mouth health affects the whole purrson-- cat, dog, human or other critter. Please take note cats and kits and cooperate with the exam. I will try to take my own advice!

Well, yesterday I promised to start telling about the dogs in our family, both of which are cat friendly and well trained by me! I remember one day when mom was frustrated and they were both in a state of excitement. She gave the sit command and nothing happened. All I did was hop in the chair next to her and raise my paw--- both bottoms hit the floor immediately! She just stood there with her mouth open and wondered, did I just see what I thought I saw?

Our oldest dog Ginger is a lab/rotty mix, about 65 lbs and 12 yrs old. She has kidney disease and is on medication. Our younger dog, who most humans think is older, is named Lucky. He is a Golden/bloodhound mix, 10 yrs old and about 90 lbs. Both came from friends of mom, who were unable to keep them. Ginger came from a friend, whose parents decided to move the family to Florida and were continually having housing issues. Mom offered to keep Ginger until they got settled. Ten years later, she is still with us. Lucky came from a man going into assisted living and he was unable to keep such a large dog. Mom worked with his niece and she asked if we could take him, because the family wanted to euthanize him and he was a healthy 5 yr old at that point. Lucky originally was slated to go into our foster program to be adopted out, but mom discovered he did not get along well around other dogs. He did get along with Ginger and with us, but maybe he understood that it was the end of the road, if he didn't! Mom always calls Lucky my Barney's dog and I have found him very useful. When I want to go out, I walk under his belly so I can't be seen. I feed Lucky and Ginger, of course, the treats off the top of the fridge. Lucky can also rip open food bags that I am unable to.

Well, that's it for today and I am not sure about tomorrow. Mom pulled out an album of past fosters and family members. I might also recall a few more dog tails or ? Hope everyone has a Great Day and keep warm and safe. Let me know where we should go with our stories.

Just saw a story on the news that a number of chimps used for medical research are being retired to a sanctuary where they can experience life free of cages and as natural as possible, because they could not live in the wild. About time! We wish them a great rest of their lives!

1/23/13 A Warmer Wednesday Here +7!
Barney's back--- Mom slept in again today. Said she is trying not to come down with something. Been sneezing, as I do on occasion, only more. At least the weather is warmer, though going back to the deep freeze tonight.

Well, back to my story and how I came to stay here. As I said yesterday, I started in the adoption program but, Zeus take notes (think he has already) I was stressing out to the point mom was afraid to take me out of the carrier! Hissing, Spitting, Claws out whacking! I would do anything to stay with mom. The thing that worked best was sneaking out of the house, when she let the dogs out--- walked right out under the big one's belly. His name is Lucky, by the way. Mom's rule, the rescues rule, is to keep cats indoors. A good idea, but not mine. That was one of my most fun games and if it was after dark, the better! Mom had to get one of those little lights out. I went all over the yard and even followed behind her--- she turned around and I was right at her heels--- he he he! We cats are soooo clever! Mom finally decided that if she didn't keep me, how could she be sure someone else would be so careful not to let me run. Lucky she did decide to keep me too, because I did have one health issue, I had been hiding, but the vet discovered one day, when I couldn't eat, due to pain in my mouth. My gums were inflamed and several of my teeth were loose and rotting. Not a good situation for us cats. Most of my teeth needed pulling and I am down to 3 fangs. Now you may ask, how can he eat? Very well, thank you, now that my mouth isn't sore. I even catch mice and birds, but mom has to rescue them, because they might slowly suffocate in my mouth. Its somewhat embarrassing. There are small critters out there telling strange tales of the toothless cat.

Well, that is most of my story. Tomorrow, I will tell a bit about my 2 dogs, Ginger and Lucky, and how it helps to have large dog friends to do your bidding. I have them well trained. They know I have access to where their treats are on top of the fridge and are very willing to do a number of things for me, like propping the backdoor open with their butt.

Have a Super Day and stay warm or cool, depending on where you,live. We love you all dear friends! Barney and family.

1/18/13 A Real TGIF from Barney!!! 20 degrees
Sorry furrends, mom just is having a hard time with the early schedule. Her eyes are blurry this morning and she is blaming us, imagine that! It's probably Molly's fault. She decided to sleep in Zeus's room and Andy too. What do they know, maybe its a bit warmer in there. A few of you asked for the rest of Molly's story. We basically finished it yesterday, except to say she generally keeps the household on schedule. Ah-Ha! She gets mom to bed on time, gets her up, makes sure the dogs get out, makes sure mom gets food on the tables at the appropriate times, etc! You have the idea.

Well today we are starting Andy's story. Also known as Handy Andy, Andy came to us about 3 yrs ago, He and another cat named Milo (not related to any other Andy and Milo on CC) were with a group of cats being fed in a garage off a Minneapolis alleyway. The volunteer feeding them noticed that Andy and Milo were friendlier than the other cats and thought they had been abandoned by a neighbor, who had moved out a few months earlier. Andy was the youngest, under a year, and Milo always ate together with him and made sure he got his share of food from the bowl. Our volunteer was amazed at how the older cat always shared with the younger and concluded that they must have been from the same household, though not the same age. She asked if a foster home could be found, because she did not have room in her home and was concerned that a few cats had disappeared from the alley and , perhaps, came to a bad end.

Mom immediately volunteered to take both cats, because she had just had our last foster adopted and the large guestroom was available. Plenty of room for two cats, as long as they got along, which they surely did.

Before coming to us as fosters, Andy and Milo went to the vet to be checked out. They were basically in good health, except for parasites, worms and fleas. Andy needed neutering and Milo was already fixed (didn't know he was broken!). They were definitely friendly and went immediately into the adoption program.

Well, again we must continue the story tomorrow. We will tell you, however, that Andy and Milo were originally adopted by a family with one other male cat, a white Persian, but they did not get along and were returned to mom, because of fighting. Mom had advised the family to keep the cats separated and to use gradual introductions, but, as happens more often than we would like, the humans did not seem to get "gradual" and said the cats were breaking through the plastic barrier they had erected.

1/16/13 Wednesday--- Mid-Week, Mid-Month !
Good Morning! Saw your note on our Angel page--- you would not believe the toys in this house--- mom puts them in a toy box and we fish them out again. Zeus

Barney here and our Catpaign is half over! Can you believe? Plus 26 degrees this morning here in Minnesota. The weather guesser says its up and then down to the deep freeze! I've hardly started talking about my current family. All the excitement and celebration the last couple days with Zeus's COTD yesterday! Wow! Now he is sleeping in like a baby. Not a peep yet this morning. If we missed anyone saying thank you for votes, shame on us. You are all precious to us and we are thankful to all. We do want to say Good Morning and Catgrat Fuzzy on his COTD today. May he have as wild and crazy a day today as Zeus did yesterday--- make it happen friends! Today its open, which means tomorrow is a surprise--- ???



Well, we talked about our foster? bro Zeus for a good two days. Today I want to talk about the lady of the house and not mom. Our sister Molly Jean runs the show. She came in as a foster just a bit after I did. I read on her page, mom said I used to give her the evil eye and pick on her-- don't remember that at all! Molly lived a hard life on the streets of Minneapolis. She was probably someone's cute kitten, who was kicked out of the house or let go when she reached the age of puberty/her first heat. People in her neighborhood reported to rescuers that she was living under a porch and had had several litters of kittens, who did not survive. She was still under the porch, it was winter, she looked pregnant and the landlord wanted her gone.
The investigator from mom's group was worried that she might come to a bad end and called to see if we had room, which we did.

Molly had kittens, but they died just after birth. She had a lot of parasites and was malnourished. Mom even waited a bit on her big girl surgery, because she needed to gain some health. The tips of her ears were frostbit.

Well, obviously Molly's life was all uphill from here, but we will have to wait til tomorrow to finish the story. We will tell how she went from an abused street cat to a loving therapy cat, giving back many times to those, who rescued her.

1/15/13 Happy Third Tuesday??? Good Morning!
Barney Here--- Wow! You would not believe how Zeus is bouncing around in Joy! He hurried down to have breakfast, only to find a pile of greetings, toys and treats and that Beautiful Shiney Badge on his CC page!! Party, Party!! He shouts--- invite all our friends! Thank you, thank you dear CC furrends for my COTD!! Mom is trying so hard to tell him, you have to eat a healthy breakfast first. Will he do it? Not today--- a kid in a candy shop has nothing on our Zeus! Thank you so much CC furrends, this is what Life is all about!

What more can we say? Just a few words on the importance of friendship and support. Mom got us on CC a bit over four years ago. At first, she wasn't sure what to expect, but very quickly we were welcomed to CC and began making furrends. After a year, we were still on, had gotten a couple COTD awards, without even asking to run, and had been asked to join MHL--mouse hockey. That was a natural for us, though mom protested a bit, saying she knew nothing about hockey.
Our dogs joined DC and, at that time, we even had a couple rescued rats on SAC. Mom remembers one day hearing Dr. Phil saying, "How can anyone get on the computer for hours and pretend to be their cat or dog? Well, we want to answer that for you Dr. Phil! It is the most natural and normal thing in the world! We join together in a community of love, caring and respect for all. We support each other through our ups and downs in life, through our common interests in a safe environment. There have been a few mistakes, we are never purrfect, but we are a strong community, because our hearts are pure and we care for one another.

There, I have got on my soapbox, though I want to know, why a soapbox? Why not a catfood box or crate of cans? This blog may be a bit shorter than usual, but it is Zeus's day to celebrate and celebrate we will! No live blogging, mom has to go help her cousin Janet, who is studying for her State Boards, which she is taking next week to become a Certified Nursing Assistant. You might remember that is her cousin that lost her dad from Alzheimer's a year ago, just before Thanksgiving. So come Party on our pages, share and enjoy all the treats and toys to be had! Love to all--- Barney, Zeus, Handy Andy, Molly Jean, Hefty and mom, Judi.

1/12/13 Happy Caterday to all!
Barney here again and how I do love that Caterday expression! Well, I have been doing a lot of thinking this week about the theme for our January Catpaign. We have talked a lot about mom and our rescue group. So far most of the kitties we've introduced have been past Angels. I do want to talk about the current kitties too, so I guess we can call our theme a self-portrait of our CC family.

While I can't remember exactly how long we have been on CC, it has been about four years. My first COTD was 2/26/09. Mom discovered CC a short time after the death of a good friend, who had been living with her for several years. The way mom met her was through another friend, who had known Lynne from childhood and knew mom from working together at the U. of MN. Lynne lost her apartment when her landlord was remodeling the building. She had four cats and needed to find someone to care for them until she found another place to live. Their mutual friend approached mom with the problem and asked mom if there was any way she could help. Mom already had several cats she was fostering and really was at her limit. She was living by herself in the house she inherited from her grandmother, who had died a year before. Finally she asked where Lynne would be living and the answer was that she did not know. Mom thought on the problem. It did not make sense for her to take more cats, but she did have room for another human, if she was sure they were a safe person to live with. Her friend assured mom she had known Lynne since childhood, so mom decided to take a chance. Mom decided the only way she would take the cats was if Lynne came with and cared for them. Lynne's male cats George and Reggie had been neutered, but her females Felicia and Baby (who was Felicia's baby) were not. Mom made an agreement with Lynne that she would help get low cost spays for the girls, but Lynne did need to agree to have the cats spayed, if they were to live with mom. She quickly agreed.

Well, tomorrow is Sunday, and Sunday we would like to keep as an open day for questions about anything you may want to know from the week before. Depending on the number of questions, we will try to answer all, but may have to save some for the coming week or for purrsonal blogs.

Music, dancing, appetizers - parties usher in 2013
The first New Year's celebration dates back to around 2000 BC in Mesopotamia. The Times Square celebration began in 1904, when The New York Times opened its headquarters and hosted a big party, complete with fireworks, on New Year's Eve.
In 1907, the paper's head electrician constructed a giant lighted ball, made of wood and iron, weighed 700 pounds, and was lit by a hundred 25-watt bulbs.
Today, it's made of Waterford crystal, weighs almost six tons, and is lit by more than 32,000 LED lights. The party in Times Square is attended by up to a million people every year.

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but New Year's celebrations can be so delightful! And since you've got a place to go--to see the ball fall--let us go, let's go, here we go!
Other cities have developed other ball-dropping traditions:
Atlanta, Georgia, drops a giant peach.
Eastport, Maine, drops a sardine.
Ocean City, Maryland, drops a beach ball.
Mobile, Alabama, drops a 600-pound electric Moon Pie. Tempe, Arizona has a giant tortilla chip which descends into a massive bowl of salsa.
Brasstown, North Carolina drops a Plexiglas pyramid containing a live possum.
Key West, Florida, drops an enormous ruby slipper with a drag queen inside it.

Quote from the movie New Yr's Eve: "And as you all can see, the ball has stopped half way to its perch. it's suspended there to remind us before we pop the champagne and celebrate the new year, to stop, and reflect on the year that has gone by, to remember both our triumphs and our missteps, our promises made and broken, the times we opened ourselves up to great adventures... or closed ourselves down for fear of getting hurt, because that's what new year's all about, getting another chance, a chance to forgive. to do better, to do more, to give more, to love more, and to stop worrying about what if... and start embracing what will be. so when that ball drops at midnight, and it will drop, let's remember to be nice to each other, kind to each other, and not just tonight but all year long." Oprah chimes in, "Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right."

While brave, enthusiastic merrymakers, revelers and tourists from across the globe flood Times Square to withstand the fierce winds and bone-chilling weather, mom will watch the festivities from the comfort of her cozy home. Fond memories, friendly smiles and warm hearts keep us bubbly and sparkling. We heartily toast the countdown to 12a.m. with friends and loved ones.

Hi Felix and Family
Leaving a vote to say goodbye to the old year and say hello to the new year with a little kitty etiquette (this is mainly for young kittens) MOL.

Cat Etiquette
From catcollectors.com



Inexperienced Cats should learn Etiquette - Here are your guidelines.

1. If you have to throw up, get into a chair quickly. If you
cannot manage this in time, get to an Oriental rug. Shag is good.

2. Determine quickly which guest hates cats. Sit on that lap
during the evening. He won't dare push you off and will even call you
"nice kitty". If you can arrange to have cat food on your breath, so much the better.

3. For sitting on laps or rubbing against trouser legs, select
colors that contrast with your own.

4. Always accompany guests to the bathroom. It is not
necessary to do anything. Just sit and stare.

5. For guests who say, "I love kitties", be ready with
aloof disdain, claws applied to stockings or a quick nip on the ankles.

6. Do not allow closed doors in any room. To get one open,
stand on hind legs and hammer with forepaws. Once the door is opened for you, it
is not necessary to use it. You can change your mind. When you have
ordered an outside door opened, stand half in and half out and think about several
things. This is important during very cold weather or mosquito season.

7. If one person is busy and the other is idle, sit with the busy
one. For book readers, get in close under the chin, unless you can lie
across the book itself.

8. For ladies knitting, curl quietly into lap and pretend to
doze. Then reach out and slap knitting needles sharply. This is what she calls
a dropped stitch. She will try to distract you. Ignore it.

9. For people doing homework, sit on the paper being worked on. After being removed for the second time, push anything movable off the table - pens, pencils, stamps - one at a time.

10. Get enough sleep during the daytime so that you are fresh for
playing at night between 2 and 4 am.

Hi Felix and Family
I am so sorry this is late but mom and I are trying to get caught up on thank you blogs since Thursday.
OMC, I am so honored to be given COTD on Thursday . I haven't been on CC very long but everyone that I have met on here has been so nice. I am proud to call everyone here a friend and appreciate the time all of you spent by stopping by my page to paw a vote for me. I also would like to say thank you for all the treats, gifts and goodies everyone is leaving me. I would like to dedicate my honor to all kitties who are homeless as they deserve a loving home too.

Thanks so much for droping in and saying hello. Sorry we didn't get back to you sooner but chores and Dad don't fit well together especially this time of year. Before we knew it one day was gone then two. Santa likes variety? I haven't exactly been a good girl lately. Do you think that if I baked him somehting different this year he might believe I am gonna try and be good from now on and he'll give me presents?

Wintertime
I do not like snow. So I am not liking the fact that Winter will blow in on Friday. When my mom opens the door for me to go out and if there is just a half an inch of snow.....nooooooo way I am getting my paws in that stuff. We have a pool here and one time in the summer my dad was putting chemicals into the pool and there was a white foam on top and I thought for one moment that it was snow and I would not go out until the foam had disappeared. My parents thought it was funny, but I didn't!!! We here in NE Ohio can have some cold,cold and snowy winters, so I can hardly wait for spring. Now I do love to lay in front of a good fire when my dad makes one in our fireplace. Have a meowy day!!!

Come visit me, Felix, Angus & Houdini.
