Hi Sweet Neekah Boo and Ali!
Just a quick meow to let our dear furiends know we are doing fine. Little George went to church with our pawrents this morning. Afterwards they went out for breakfast; came home to check on us kitties, then back out to the nearby playground where George loves the slides, swings and jungle gyms. The playground is close by our house. We always walk pass it our cat stroller walks, but of course we had never stop to play there. MOL! Our outside furry furiend Scamper is doing okay. He didn’t come home last night so Mom was worried. Then at 2 a.m. Mom and us cats were woken up by a loud cat fight outside. Mom and all of four of us jumped up out of bed. We ran to the window and Mom ran outside in her pajamas! Hee, hee! (It was very early so no one was around!) Scamper and another cat were face to face in a Mexican standoff in the middle of the street. Mom shooed the cat away and Scamper followed her home where he ran into the garage. Whew! Our Dad and little George slept through it all!

My sisters and I are still getting used to the little guy. Callie and I like to watch him from the stairs. Whitey and Orangie only come out of the bedroom at night. We don’t get as much Mom-time as we’re used to, but we’re satisfied getting Mom at bedtime.

Sadly our Mom hasn’t had much time left over for our blogging. When she isn’t playing with George or us, she is trying to cook and keep the house sort-of clean. Mom’s old Kirby vacuum cleaner finally died, which made us cats’ cheer:)- But of course Mom had to get a mew one right away.( Too much cat fur floating around with the warm weather. ) The good mews is she bought a Dyson Animal vacuum cleaner and loves it, plus it is much quieter than her old Kirby vacuum. Us cats still don’t like it, but we just might be able to get used to it!

George has been giving us treats twice a day when we’re hiding under the bed. Him and Mom sit on the floor with George putting treats in a small bowl and shoving it slowly under the bed. Callie, Orangie and myself have started to accept the treats, but Whitey is the only one who refuses to move and she growls. Not a good sign, but Mom never lets George get too close. Baby steps, right?!

We miss our CC furiends and will meow again soon. ♥

We love you both very much and always have you kitties in our prayers. We hope Ali is feeling better. You too sweetie!

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

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo and Ali!
We had problems with our internet connection again last night. We had just arrived to the MHL Hockey Arena, meowed a few hellos, and then POOF! We couldn’t get back on until it was time for bed. We’re hoping with all our hearts that we don’t have any problems at Coronation time. My Mom has a call in to AT&T again this morning and she is quickly losing her patience. (Heavy sigh)

Good mews...we’re expecting rain on Thursday and the local weather lady said we might get hit by several storms lasting a few days. Hooray! We need it! The creek by our house hasn’t dried up completely yet, but it’s getting close.

We’re all doing fine, including Scamper, our outside furiend. He’s getting used to rubbing against my Mom’s legs in the evening when she puts his food out. She has to sit down on her step stool and be very still. Scamper still won’t let her touch him, but we know he will eventually.

My sister Callie has to have her teeth cleaned this Thursday. My Mom brushes Callie’s teeth every day, so she asked the vet what’s the point? Dr. Natt said some cats are just more prone to gum disease than others. She said if Mom didn’t brush Callie’s teeth, it could be worse. Mom worries about having Callie put under anesthesia, but Callie had a good checkup a couple of months ago and the vet will do blood work on her before the cleaning.

Our Dad didn’t want to go to the doctor appointment our Mom made for him today, but it was too late to cancel. He did make a miraculous recovery, no longer running a temp, but Mom told his doctor about his fever lasting 10 days, the night sweats and his recent dental implants. Of course when the nurse took his temp, it was fine, but they ran some blood work anyway. Thanks for all your get-well wishes and prayers. Maybe that’s why he got better!:)

We'll see you two at the Coronation!

Hi Beautiful Neekah Boo!
Good mews on my latest blood test results. All the numbers look good with one small exception pertaining to my kidneys. One of the chemistry readings is right on the border of being high, but the vet said it’s nothing to worry about as long as we keep an eye on it. Dr. Natt thinks my special diet and rechecks every other month should keep me healthy. Hooray! I owe many thanks to my dear CC furiends for the well wishes and prayers. That’s what tipped the scales in my favor!

Our Dad is still not feeling too good. He did sweat a lot last night though and said he felt a little better this morning. He came home early from work today and is napping. Think we’ll join him!

We love you sweet furiend. Give handsome Ali and your dear Mom big, warm cuddles for us.

After church, the family returned home and began
preparing for their picnic

Whiskers carefully loaded his back pack with, his get well cards and a plastic binder with lots of protective sheets. He had only enough room left in his pack for a couple of bottles of water, some energy bars and the small first aid kit he always carried on their excursions.
Pete loaded the bicycles onto the rack and then made a quick trip to the local bike shop to pick up something he had custom ordered when they first arrived in California. He returned and closed himself into a corner of the four car garage. After a a half hour or so, he went looking for Flower and told him he needed a paw. When Flower returned to the garage with Pete, he saw a full size three wheel “bike” It had an electric motor and and seat for two. On the back it had a nice wide basket.
Pete said, “I'm trying to adjust this as closely as possible to fit Neekah Boo. I want her to be able to ride with us, but I don't want her t get too tired. You're just about her size, would you hop on and see if it's comfortable for you the way I have it set up?”
Flower did as he was asked and he sat on the seat, placed his feet on the pedals on his side of the seat and grasped his set of handlebars. He said, The pedals are a little close for me, but I think Neekah Boo's legs are just a little shorter than mine.”
Pete nodded, “Okay, let's take it out onto the driveway and try it out.”
They rolled it out the two of them climbed on and they both began to pedal the three wheeler in lazy circles. Flower remarked, “It pedals very easily, should we try shifting gears?”
They did, and found that the gearing was set up very nicely. Pete said, “Let's try the motor.”
Pete turned the key and rotated the handle bar grip, the bike accelerated smoothly and silently. He pulled out onto the street and they ran through the gears on electric power.
Pete stepped back looking a the sleek silver machine and said, “I think we're ready to surprise Neekah Boo. She and Ali should be delighted, I hope so anyway.”
Pete entered the kitchen to find Neekah Boo helping with the packing of the picnic baskets. He said, “Sweetheart, I have a surprise for you. You know we plan on riding bikes today, and you didn't have a bike so I got you one. “
Neekah Boo smiled happily and then the smile began to fade. She said, “Oh Sweet Pete, I don't know if my legs will work well enough to ride a bike.”

Pete said, “I thought of that, Precious, I think you'll be able to ride this one. Come out and see it.”

Pete led Neekah Boo to the garage, the rest of the family followed and Ali led the laughing happy pack of kids, Neekah Boo saw the bike and said, “Ohhh it has three wheels so I won't fall over, and it has room for Ali and a friend, Still I don't know how far I can pedal it.”
Pete asked her to get on, and when she was seated (with Ali sitting beside her) Pete said, “Okay sweetheart, you pedal until you get tired or until you're going up a steep hill, then you turn this switch on. Then you rotate the hand grip. Try it.”
Neekah pedaled out onto the driveway looked both ways and turned onto the street, She pedaled down the block, turned around and switched on the motor, She zoomed by, with Ali lughing and saying, “Go faster Neekah, Go Faster!”
she switched the motor off, pedaled back up the driveway and climbed off. She came to Pete, hugged him and said, “Pete, it's perfect. I love you!”
Pete hugged her back and said, “The bike is nice, You're purrfect, Neekah Boo.”
Pete showed her the levers to collapse the baskets and fold the bike so that it fit onto the bike carriers mounted on the back of the van, Pete and Flower loaded the rest of the bikes, while Whiskers, loaded the baskets and blankets. In no time they were on the road to the park.

Talley found the perfect spot under the oaks and whisker spread the blankets. Pete and Flower unloaded the bikes and brought them over to the picnic site. Angel Maggie and Callie got the food out while Whitey and Orangie set places on the blankets. Raven and Ms. Murphy opened chilled bottles of sparkling grape juice and filled glasses. The ducks apparently remembered them and the kids delighted in feeding them almost as much as the ducks enjoyed eating. The food was, as always, excellent and for a while after lunch, they lay back and relaxed watching fluffy white clouds drift across an azure blue sky. Tabitha started it by saying, “that cloud looks like two bunnies!”
Pretty soon all of them were finding meanings in the shapes of the clouds.
After a while Talley said, “I'm rested enough, let's go riding. We can ride to the museum. Whiskers wants to teach us some of the history of the area, and from the little bit he told me last night, I think you'll all be fascinated.”
Neekah Boo found her bike to be a delight. When the came to steep hills, she switched on her motor and zoomed past her struggling friends, with Ali crying out delightedly, “Catch us if you can!”

When they reached the museum, Whiskers, who had read up on it to refresh his memory took them on a guided tour. He explained the mercury, or quicksilver as it was sometimes called, was essential in refining gold, “During the California gold rush mercury was almost as highly sought after as the gold itself.”
Daisy asked, “Uncle Whiskers, why did they want gold? Isn't it just another metal?”
Whiskers smiled, Gold has always been rare and since time immemorial it's been used as a means of exchange. Finding gold in California created a rush from the east coast of thousands of people who hoped to make their fortunes in gold. It led to the westward expansion of our country, They lived in tents and struggled to survive. Big gold camp cities sprang up. Lot's of them are ghost towns now.”
They continued the tour and at the end, Flower asked, “Uncle Whiskers, do you think we could find some gold?”
Whiskers smiled and led them to the Museum gift shop, where the clerk already had a package for him behind the counter. Whiskers opened the bag and handed each of them a box containing a pan, a small shovel and a booklet, explaining how to pan for gold. The kids were full of excitement as Whiskers led them to the creek behind the museum. They weren't going to get rich, but they actually did find small amounts of tiny gold flecks, which they put into the little plastic tubes that came with their kits. They probably collected a gram of gold between them, but it was enough to set them wondering if there was gold in the part of the creek that ran behind Whiskers house.
Whiskers said, “I don't see any harm in checking, I'll call mom when we get back to the house and ask her if we can come over and pan for gold in the creek.”
Pete said, “Tell her we'll bring dinner, When we getting the Chinese food the other nght, we drove by an Indian Restaurant that had great smelling food. Something spicy might be just what your dad needs to help his cold!”
They rode the bikes back to their picnic site, packed up and then rode back to the parking lot.
The day had been wonderful, and it wasn't over yet.
Pete had called his mom and she was delighted with the idea of a family dinner featuring Indian Food, and curious about whether there might be gold in the creek.
While Pete and Neekah Boo went to get the food, The rest of the family rode their bikes over to Whiskers' house. By the time Pete and Neekah Boo returned with dinner (enough to feed three families) the house was completely empty and the sound of laughter came up from the creek. Pete and Neekah Boo walked down

and asked, “Whats all the excitement?”
Dad Joe said, “The kids have confirmed that there is gold in the creek, quite a bit of it.”
Flower showed Pete his little tube that was nearly half full.
Pete did some mental calculations, and said, “Our cat bucks are pure gold, so I watch the current prices for gold. Last Friday gold was $1211.00 per ounce, or about $39.00 per gram. We can weigh it on Mom Mandy's kitchen scale but that looks like a couple of grams you've got there, Flower.”

Dad Joe said, “I may have to get a panning kit and spend my afternoons down here!”
They walked back up the house and cleaned up for dinner.
The kids were very excited when Mom Mandy weighed their for them and told them that they had collected almost an ounce of gold.
Dinner was delicious and Pete lamented that the closest good Indian Restaurant back home was almost an hours drive from them.

After dinner, They rode back to their house and had dessert. More of Talley's apple pie.
Whiskers and Talley called it an early night, as they had to get up early to be ready for Whiskers' vet visit in the morning.
Before he went to bed Pete began planning the flight back east. If Whiskers' tests were completed early they'd leave for home in the afternoon. Pete kissed Neekah Boo goodnight at the door to her room, and told her that he was very happy she liked her bike.

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo!
Well, I made it to the vet to have my blood drawn once more, but I did give my Mom a hard time when it came time to put me in that awful cat carrier. I knew that my Mom was up to something, so I found the best hiding place I could. Mom had to search high and low for me. There’s a small cubbyhole in one of our cat trees that none of us ever use, or so Mom thought. She finally spotted my eyes when she was crawling around the living room floor looking under the sofa and chairs with a flashlight. I hung on tight to the carpeted cat tree, but Mom got me!

It went okay at the vet. We had to wait a while, but Mom sat with me until it was time to draw my blood. The vet said I was a very brave boy. Not a single meow out of me! We should get the results tomorrow.

We’ve been having problems with our internet access, but Mom finally heard from AT&T and they know about the issues. They are working on it in our neighborhood. We can expect to lose our connection sporadically throughout the day.:( We hope it’s really for just one day. We’ve been having computer issues all weekend. No fun at all!

Our Dad went back to school today, but he still isn’t feeling well. He has a slight temp and feels run down. Mom is keeping a close eye on him.

Thanks for all your prayers dear furiend. We're going to paw over to Ali's page and thank him too. We love you both...your sweet Mom too!

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

Hi Beautiful Neekah Boo!
My ultra sound was good, no new problems. We’re going to keep an eye on my urine test results every couple of months, but for now, no surgery! Hooray! I see the vet again on Monday for more blood work, but that shouldn’t take long. I’m just so grateful I got a reprieve from my surgery. I kind of felt like one those prisoners on death row who gets a call from the governor at the last second. MOL! My sister Callie says my Mom and I are overly melodramatic. Easy for her to mew!

Our new outside furry furiend Scamper is doing well, still using the cathouse to sleep at night and never missing a meal. Mom still has not been able to get close enough to pet him, but Scamper did brush against Mom’s leg while she was filling his kibble bowl. It surprised them both. Mom looked up and Scamper quickly ran under the bushes. Hee, hee! I think that counts as progress!

Thanks for all your well wishes and prayers for me sweetie. You and your family are the best furiends ever!

Talley and Whiskers were exhausted after their day
of tests and blood work. Mom Mandy was too.
When they had arrived back at Whiskers' parent's home Talley had called Pete and told him that Mom Mandy needed a break from cooking tonight.
Pete had asked, What can I do to help, would they like take-out food brought in or would you like us to prepare food here and bring it over?”
Talley asked Whiskers what he thought. Whiskers went into the living room and asked his mom, “Mom what kind of food would you like for dinner, we're taking care of it.”
Hi s mom thought for a moment and said, “Your dad loves Chinese. Thank you Whiskers, you and Talley are so sweet!”
Whiskers told Talley, “Chinese would be great, My dad loves the Chow Mein from China Jade, it's a drive but I think they have the best Chinese in San Jose. Tell Pete just to get some of everything he thinks looks good.”

Pete said that he would take care of dinner and asked what time they wanted the food there, Talley told him seven o'clock. Pete said, I'll get food for all of us, but I imagine that Whiskers' mom is as tired as you sound, so I'll drop food off at our house for us and bring the food for you, Whiskers and his mom and dad over there. I'm looking at the menu on line ask Whiskers if his dad would like an appetizer platter and the Chicken Chow Mein Party platter.

Whiskers said his dad would love it and added, maybe some salt and pepper calamari and salt and pepper wings too.

Talley rang off and said, “Pete will get way more food than we can eat, so I hope Scamper likes Chinese.”

Whiskers mom had fallen asleep on the sofa. His dad was looking in the refrigerator, His dad said, “I wonder what your mom would like for dinner?”
Whiskers said, “Dad, we're taking care of dinner tonight. Mom said Chinese would be good. Pete's going to Jade China and getting take-out.”
Whiskers dad said, “I hope he gets some of their chicken chow mein.”
Whiskers laughed, “That and a whole lot more.”

Pete got the keys to the van and asked Callie if she knew where Jade China was. She said she did, and Pete asked her to come with him and Neekah Boo to show

them the way. We're getting food to take over to your mom and dad's house so they don't have to cook tonight.”
Callie said dad will be happy, he loves the food from Jade China.”
Neekah Boo had been enjoying the sun on the pool deck and when Pete asked her if she wanted to go with him to get the food, she hurried in to change into slacks and a blouse. She was ready in just a few minutes and the three kitties climbed in the van and drove out toward the restaurant.
Pete had ordered the food on the phone and was surprised when he saw just how much there was. It smelled wonderful, and he carefully placed it in the back of the van, separating. What was going to Whiskers' house and what would be going to their house.
Callie directed them back home and said she would go with him to take the food over to her mom, dad, Talley and Whiskers.
They unloaded the big boxes of food at their house and then hurried over to deliver the food while it was still warm.
Mom Mandy was delighted!
Pete asked Whiskers, are you coming back with us, or are you staying here tonight?”
Whiskers said that he and Talley would stay over here tonight to be with his mom.
Pete hugged his brother and said, “Try to get some rest, it's been a tough day.
Whiskers mom was setting the table and Callie and Neekah Boo were helping her. When they were done, They said their goodbyes and headed over to the house, where Maggie already hat the table set. It was set for a lot of kitties. Angels Lucy and Sylvie arrived bringing Mitch Pearl and all of the extended family. Maggie said , “Since you bought enough food for everyone we decided to make a real family dinner.”
Pete and Neekah Boo, sat at the head of the table and Neekah Boo said the grace.
It was a good family dinner.

After the Hockey games, Angels Sylvie and Lucy had
transported the family back to their California Home. Then Whiskers and Talley had driven over to Whiskers' house. To talk with his mom about the call from Dr Nat. Whiskers and Talley were both concerned, but agreed that it was wise not to operate until the ultrasound provided more information.
Whiskers said, “Mom, Try not to worry. It won't help and with all of the prayers and help of angels, it's going to be okay.”,
Mom Mandy hugged her boy and kissed his head. She said, “I know Whiskers, I just love you so much, I can't help but worry.”
Whiskers and Talley, both gave her soft snuggles and Whiskers said, “It's time we were winding down, for the evening. Do you want to pick su up in the morning, or should we drive over here?”
Mom Mandy said, “Why don't I pick you up at 7:30?”
Whiskers said, “7:30 it is, we'll be ready!”
When Talley and Whiskers returned home, They found the family room full of friends. Mitch and Pearl, Thomas and Annabella, Lisa and Bumper, Eli and Adele, and Gato and Tuna were all there, Neekah Boo was laughing at a story that Eli was telling and they were all enjoying milk and apple pie.
Whiskers laughed happily, “What are you all doing here, What about work and the shelters?”
Angel Lucy said, We transported them here to spend some time with you, and we'll take them back when the evening is over. They missed the kids too, an the kids missed them. It seems that Eli's bedtime stories are are a big part of the kids evening rituals.”
Daisy asked Eli, “Is it time for bed and a story yet Grampa Eli?”
Eli said, “I think it is Daisy, Come on kids, tonight I'll tell you how I met the most beautiful bunny in the whole world, and got her to marry me.”
Adele blushed and said, “Oh Eli, for goodness sake!”
Neekah Boo smiled at the two elderly rabbits and wondered if she and Pete would be so happy and so much in love with each other, and life, when they were as old as Eli and Adele.
She looked at Pete who held Lisa and Bumpers kids on his lap and stroked their soft bunny fur. She knew that she would always love him for his gentleness and his kindness, and she knew that he would always love her.
Maggie handed Whiskers a plate with a large slice of pie on it and Callie brought him a tall glass of milk.
At least, he thought, he didn't have to go to bed hungry tonight.

Pete asked, “So Dr Nat decided that more tests are required”
Whiskers nodded, “She did a consult with another specialist, and they decided that it would be wise to do an ultrasound. There may still be surgery, but not until they're sure what they're dealing with.”

Pete nodded, “Well that seems wise to me, and no matter what they find, we're all with you all the way. I think, faith and prayer will make this right!”
Neekah Boo, said, “Whiskers, I feel in my heart that you're going to be fine. I just know it. Ali and I will pray very hard for you.”
Ali nodded vigorously, “I'll pray, Uncle Whiskers!”
Eli got up and said, “Come on kids off to bed. Time for one story and the sleep.”

Talley said, “as much as we'd love to stay up and spend some time with all of you, we have to be up early, Whiskers' mom will be here at 7:30 to pick us up.”
Everyone said good night, and before Whiskers and Talley went to bed, They all joined paws and said a prayer for a good outcome on the tests.

Later as Talley and Whiskers were falling asleep, Whiskers said, “That was really nice of everyone to come out here, I know they really did it to comfort us.”
Talley hugged him and said, “I know they did too, That what friends do.”
Then they fell asleep.

Pete and Neekah Boo a relaxing evening
Pete and Neekah Boo sat on the pool deck enjoying the warm evening. Ali had fallen asleep while playing with Flower and the other kids, and they had tucked him in to his bed with his stuffed mousie. The house was now quiet, Whiskers and Talley had gone to bed. Raven, Ms. Murphy, Callie, Whitey and Orangie we, reading and visiting friends on their computers.
Pete asked Neekah if she would like something to drink. Neekah thought for a moment and then said, “Is there any more of that sparkling apple cider that we had for dinner?”
Pete said, “There are several bottles chilled in the refrigerator. That sounds good, I'll get us a bottle and some glasses. I'll be right back.”
When he returned he placed the tray on one of the low tables by their chairs. And opened the bottle. The cork came out with a pop sound, and Pete poured them both a glass.
Neekah took a sip and sneezed as the bubbles tickled her nose.
Pete said, “God Bless you!”
Neekah laughed and told him that the bubbles were tickling her.
Pete said, “I can get you something else, Iced tea maybe we have some Snapple Peach tea.”
Neekah said, “No Pete, I like this it's kind of fun being tickled.”
Pete pointed up at the sky and said, “There's Orion, do you see it? She looked up and followed the direction of his paw, she spotted the stars that made up the constellation and then he pointed to the stars that made up the belt. “Do you see that middle star, the one that looks a little fuzzy?”
Neekah Boo looked and then said, “Yes I see it, Pete. It is fuzzy, why is that?”
Pete took a small pocket telescope from his pocket and said, because it's not a star, It's a nebula, hot clouds of gas, that collapse on themselves and create new stars, It's a star nursery, with millions of stars being born. Look through this, it's only forty power but you should be able to see the gas clouds pretty well with it.”
Neekah Boo took the small telescope and put it to her eye. “Oh my,” She exclaimed in wonder, “It's so beautiful, Pete”
“It is, isn't it? That Nebula is 1500 light years away from us, that means that what we're seeing now happened 1500 years ago. Some of those tiny pin pricks of light are now full size stars!”
Neekah Boo sipped her chilled cider and said, “I had dreamed that you'd give me the moon and stars, and now you have, in a way. I'd love for Ali to see this.”
Pete said, “We need to do some shopping tomorrow, I want to get both of you your own swim suits and while we're out, I'll see if Whiskers knows of a good place to get a better telescope. We'll show Ali the stars tomorrow night.”

They sipped their drinks and Pete refilled their glasses. They looked at the stars for a good while, finishing the bottle of cider. Finally Pete said, well I guess we should get some sleep, tomorrow will be a busy day.
Neekah Boo got up and Pete carried their tray inside. He washed the glasses and put them in away. As he was walking Neekah Boo to her room, they passed the study and Raven said, “We were checking the cameras in the shelters and everyone is warm and cozy. They're all asleep now, but every seems fine.”
Pete nodded, “I'm sure the guys will take good care of everyone until we get home.”

He gave Neekah Boo a kiss at her door and told her, I'll see you in the morning sweetheart, sleep well.”

“You too, Pete. I love you.”

“I love you Neekah Boo.”

Pete smiled all the way up to his room.

Talley and Whiskers - California Bound!
Talley and Whiskers - California Bound!

The Family had been up early, Pete had spent yesterday evening with Thomas, Mitch, Gato, Scamper, Bumper,Scraps and all of his trusted friends, going over what needed to be done while the family was in California for Whiskers surgery! Pete had authorized all of them to to use the Foundation's Shelter accounts for any needed expenses. He finished by saying, “We don't know how long we'll be gone, but you can contact us anytime by phone. In an emergency, we can have the angels transport us back here in an instant.”
All of the extended family, told him that they would be fine and the shelters would be fine. Gato said, just concentrate on K Whiskers getting well!

It had been hard getting to sleep, and the alarm that Pete had set went off too early. Sleepily he washed and dressed warmly. It was 6 degrees outside and snow was falling. Angels Lucy and Sylvie had prepped the family's Lear 85 inside the hangar and were running the prestart checklist indoors, to avoid accumulating ice, sitting on the ramp in the freezing weather.

Pearl, Annabella, Lisa, Adele and Joanne had surprised the family with a hearty breakfast, prepared and loaded into one of the Lear Jets Custom Galley containers. They could have a warm meal en route to Sunny California.

Pete and Whiskers supervised loading the Luggage aboard the jet. Bobby, Inky and Storm had joked about the amount of luggage the girls had packed, asking if they were moving to California, or just visiting.
Pete had replied that they didn't know how long they would need to be in California and the girls would rather take too much as opposed to too little.

The Galley unit was loaded aboard and the jet rolled out of the hangar. Pete and Whiskers began the final cockpit checklist while the girls settled in. Talley put two apple pies in the galley fridge and took her seat BY Neekah Boo.

Flower came aboard and went to the cockpit where he took the jumpseat behind Whiskers. Pete asked for everyone to strap in and Whiskers started the turbines. He waited for the temperatures and pressures to stabilize and then Pete contacted the tower. They were cleared to taxi! The runway was barely visible in the blowing snow, and as Whiskers steered down the centerline, there were

moments when the horizon was barely visible. When Pete called, “Liftoff!”, Whiskers eased back on the yoke and the jet cleared the ground in a steep climb.
They were running full deice and were satisfied that the brief time they had spent on the tarmac hadn't allowed ice to accumulate on the airframe.

They climbed to 44,000 feet and leveled off, Whiskers turned to a heading of two seven zero degrees and engaged the flight director. He sat back and watched as the aircraft flew itself westward at 65o miles per hour.

His tummy rumbled, and Pete said, “Brother, why don't you let Flower take your seat, and you can go back and have breakfast. When you finish, I'll have mine.”

Whiskers smiled and said, “Thanks, Pete, I guess my tummy just won't be quiet when I'm hungry. I won't be long.”

“Take your time buddy, we've got four and a half hours.”

Talley had served Whiskers, breakfast and they ate with the rest of the family. The girls had prepared Cheesy Scrambled eggs, Bacon, sausage and ham, pancakes and fruit salad. Neekah Boo had made hot chocolate and tea. Callie had prepared the coffee and took a cup of it to Pete in the cockpit. She brought Flower a mug of the delicious hot chocolate.

After they finished breakfast, Talley and Whiskers sat holding paws for a while, just happy to be together. Whiskers said, “I should go back to the cockpit so Pete can come back and get some food.”

Talley nodded and gave him a kiss.

Pete knew that Flower enjoyed being at the controls of the jet. He was especially fond of the Lear, for it's performance. Pete had overheard Flower taking with Flash, and Flower, Quoting a pilot he had heard bragging about getting his certification in the Lear 85, he said, “There are near jets, and then there are Lear Jets. Nothing flies like a Lear.”

Flash had laughed and asked, “Does that mean that mean that the Eclipse Jets
aren't really jets?”

Flower had admitted that they were jets, but added, “But they don't have the power or speed of the Lear. The only thing I've ever flown that's more fun than the Lear is the T-38.”

Pete had eaten breakfast and when he returned to the Cockpit, Flower had unbuckled to give him his seat back. Pete had told him to stay put. “You're doing fine, Flower. Maybe Whiskers will let you fly the landing.”

Whiskers said, “That's fine by me. The weather looks great, 78 degrees almost no wind, a perfect day in sunny California.”

Whiskers began the long descent, and flew a perfect approach and landing. After they had landed, he took a moment to Thank Whiskers for letting him land.

They had dropped Whiskers' mom at her home and then Whiskers had driven them the couple of blocks to their California home. Pete had called ahead to the agent who handled the property for them, and he hoped that she had carried out his instructions. He unlocked the door and checked the rooms. All was well, There were even fresh flowers in vases. The house was clean and smelled fresh.

The home was used as an executive rental, a place for business executives to stay that offered the convenience of a private home to conduct business. Fortunately it had been empty, when Pete had called to check. He and Flower had brought the luggage in while Talley and Whiskers had checked the pool, garage and kitchen. Talley had been very pleased to see that the refrigerator was filled, and the pantries stocked. Maggie and Callie had emailed the agent a shopping list and she had seen to it that it was filled exactly.

After the luggage had been placed in the proper rooms, The family changed into swim suits. Neekah Boo had not brought a swim suit to the snowy realms of the east coast, but Raven had found one of hers that was a perfect fit for her sister in law to be. The pool was a pleasure. Neekah Boo remarked, “The Lear Jet is magic, it brought us from freezing to this in almost no time.”

After relaxing and taking a short cat nap, they all felt refreshed, and Whiskers drove them back to his parents home.

Mom Mandy served lunch and both Callie and Maggie wanted the recipe for the delicious tomato bisque and the Cranberry walnut salad! Callie asked her mom, “Would you and dad like to have dinner with us tonight?”

Whiskers mom said, “Wouldn't that be too much trouble after your long trip?”
Callie laughed, “Mom, traveling by private jet isn't as tiring as traveling commercial, we're fine. Maggie and I were thinking of preparing, Cider Maple Glazed Cornish Hens with a cranberry pecan wild rice stuffing. We'd have fresh asparagus and pureed butternut squash with it.”

Mom Mandy smiled and said, “Your dad would love that. Are you sure?”

Callie said, “We're sure, we already have everything. The lady who takes care of the house went shopping for us. Talley is making Apple Pie and after dinner, we thought maybe we could all go swimming, so bring your suits.”

Whiskers added, “This morning when we left home, it was just above zero and snowing pretty hard. Now we can go swimming to cool off. We're going to take advantage of the nice weather while we can.”

They visited for a while after lunch and then walked back to the house. Pete and Whiskers went to the garage and made sure that the trickle charger had kept their van in running condition. Pete checked the inspection sticker, tag and insurance documents to make sure that they had been kept current. All was in order. Then the two boys got the bicycles from their racks and aired up the tires. They took the headlights and tail lights inside and plugged them in to recharge.

Angel Maggie and Callie had begun preparing the dinner, and soon the home was filled with the wonderful aromas that made everyone look forward to dinner.

Whiskers was apprehensive about his upcoming surgery, but he knew that with his mom, dad and the family to support him, he would be just fine. Angel Lucy had spoken to him quietly, telling him that she and Sylvie would be watching over him and guiding the surgeon. She had added, “If necessary, we're prepared to use magic to help.”

how powerful a combination, prayer and angel magic could be.

At seven, the doorbell rang and Whitey hurried to answer it. He mom and dad were there and they had brought a bottle of very good Pinot Grigio which would be a perfect complement to the Cornish hens.

Tha table was set with fine china and sterling silver flatware. Raven had folded the linen napkins into elegant little swans. Pete went to the China cabinet and brought crystal stemware to the table for the wine. Talley took her pies out of the oven and set them on the cooling rack.

The first course was a delicious salad, with homemade Caesar dressing (Though in fact all of the kitties were a bit disappointed, as the greens were not as fresh as what they were used to, being that their salads were made with fresh picked greens and veggies)

The soup course was a cup of Callie's Famous Baked French Onion soup, with a nice slice of homemade french bread topped with Gruyere cheese that had been baked to perfection.
Then came the main course. Pete remarked, “This is the dinner that my dad made for my mom on Valentine's day. Less the soup of course, dad said he just couldn't get it low enough in weightwatcher points to serve the soup and the hens in one meal.”

Talley said, “Dad has lost all of the weight that he gained over the holidays, but poor mom still has four pounds to go, dad figures that's another couple of weeks.”

They finished the meal with Apple Pie and homemade vanilla ice cream. Ms Murphy had brought the Tahitian vanilla beans with her.

Neekah Boo tasted the ice cream and said, “Pete, if we honeymoon in Tahiti we have to remember to get some more of these vanilla beans! I'd like to send my mom some!”

He and his dad have opened a museum that is doing quite well. They have a very nice collection and a teaching program on the art history and culture of the islands.

Neekah Boo said, “That sounds wonderful, I do so want to see the wonderful places you all talk about.”

Pete squeezed her paw and said, “And so you shall little one.”

After dinner they sat by the pool and chatted. Whiskers dad asked, “How are you dealing with all of the snow back east?”

Whiskers said, “Well we have a lot of help, but Pete and I do take our turns plowing the roads and keeping the trails cleared. We've had a fair amount of snow, but so far nothing like last winter where we had one blizzard after another.”

Whiskers mom said, “It's getting late and I have a busy day tomorrow, so I guess we should say good night.”

There were hugs and kisses and after mom and dad were gone Whiskers said, “I am getting tired, I guess that three hour difference is catching up with me. He looked at his watch and said, even though it's only ten o'clock here, It's one o'clock at home.”

As they lay snuggled together in their soft bed, Whiskers told Talley what Ange Lucy had said about watching over him and using magic if need be.”
Talley said, “I'm glad you told me that, it makes me feel a lot better.”
Whiskers replied, “Me too!”

Pete awakened early on Valentine's morning.
The party last night had been fun and he and Neekah Boo had danced together far into the evening. Today was the most special day of his life, though and he wanted it to be perfect. He opened the small box containg the Valentine's Gift he had selected for Neekah Boo. It was a Rose Gold Broach set in emeralds that was made in the mid seventeen hundreds the antique broach had been hard to find, but when Pete saw it he had a good feeling. It had been given in love and received with joy many, many times. He wrapped and tied the bow, Then he put the true treasure in his pocket, The engagement ring that he had bought for Neekah Boo. He hoped with all of his heart that she would accept it and him.

He went to the door of her room and tapped softly. She called, “Come in!”
Pete opened the door to find Neekah dressed in a lovely violet dress, and looking so beautiful that her loveliness almost took his breath.
He asked “are you ready to go down for breakfast?
Neekah Boo said, “I was just waiting for you.” The family was already gathered at the table, and good mornings were exchanged then Pete said, If I might have everyone's attention for just a moment I have a couple of small gifts for Neekah Boo, and a question for her, I'd like for all of you to share in the moment.
Ali ran over, and said, “I like questions Pete, ask me one.”
Pete laughed and tousled Ali's fur. “I promise I'll ask you questions in a little bit. For now I want to give your big sister her valentines present. He gave Neek the box containing the lovely broach. She opened it and her eyes lit up. She hugged Pete close and said, “It's beautiful Pete. Thank you ever so much!”
Then Pete got the other box from his pocket and knelt by her chair, he said, “Now for the question,” He opened the top of the box and showed her the engagement ring. The question is Neekah Boo, will you please be my wife, to have and to hold, for as long as we both shall live?”
Neekah's eyes filled with tears and she hugged Pete hard, as she said, “Oh yes my precious Pete, I'll be your wife forever and forever. The whole family cheered as Pete slipped the ring on Neekah's finger.
Whiskers slapped Pete on the shoulder and said, “congratulations brother!”
It was a very special moment and Flower had captured it all on video!

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
The sun was out early this morning, so we could tell it was going to be a warm one. 93 degrees today and tomorrow, and then it will start cooling down. Our Dad has the day off for Columbus Day, so he went with us for our stroller walk. It was still dark when we left so Mom had her flashlight. We heard some rustling in the bushes by the dry creek and a very thin coyote ran up the hill and across the walking trail! It sure scared Mom and us. Mom has heard on the local news about coyotes grabbing little dogs while people are out walking them, so to be on the look out and to keep your dogs on a leash. The coyotes are thirsty, coming down from the surrounding hills to find water and food. So very sad. We hope we get some rain this winter. We still fill the bucket by the creek with water and we sprinkle birdseed along the trail while we walk.

Today our pawrents went to Petco. Mom had four $5.00 pet rewards coupons she needed to use. Hooray! Treats all around. MOL! I know- I have to watch my diet, but we like the PureBites Freeze Dried Salmon treats that we are allowed to eat- in moderation of course. It’s no fun getting older. MOL!

We always have you and your dear Mom in our prayers sweetie. K. Pete tells us you have a mew furbaby! That's wonderful! We hope you tell us all about him sometime soon. We love you guys!

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

My Kitten Won't Stop Talking =^.^=
~~~~~
My kitten won't stop talking.
She just prattles night and day.
She walks around repeating
nearly everything I say.

My kitten never says, "Meow."
She never even purrs.
She mimics me instead
in that annoying voice of hers.

She waits for me to speak,
and then she copies every word,
or begs me for a cracker,
or says, "I'm a pretty bird."

I'm not sure what to do, and so
I simply grin and bear it.
She's been this way since yesterday;
that's when she ate my parrot.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, It's me Talley
After breakfast, Queen Talley stepped to the front of the great dining room, flanked on one side by Lady Quincy, and on the other by K Whiskers.
She turned on a wireless microphone and began to speak; “While we were aboard Luz de Luna, I promised you another adventure. We followed a trail of discovery that stretched from Columbus’s Arrival in the new world, to the stars and beyond at the Arecibo Radio Telescope, now we’re going to pursue another historic exploration, but this time it will be a rich history that is still being discovered.”
“As most of you know the Castle is a magical creation. It was created by angel kitties in the far distant past. As you’ve seen, the Castle provides what is needed at any given time. When my brother Pete was king he told me some amazing things, things like needing a reference book and looking on his desk.
As Queen, I’ve found that no matter how many kitties enter a room, it is never crowded. The pantries always have the ingredients that the chef’s need to prepare the wonderful meals that they serve us. The magic is powerful and has endured for many thousands of years. It’s not just the Castle that is magic, but our whole Empire.
I was a very young kitten when Pete was King, but I loved being here and I loved exploring the Castle. One day my friend Kuzenetsa and I were playing in the sub-basement and I found a loose shelf. I thought it might be dangerous to leave it loose like that, and so I decided to push it back against the wall. When I did, the shelf and the wall swung open to reveal a tunnel, far below the castle. Steps led down, and Kuzi and I followed them. We walked for a long ways, and came to a door. It was huge, with big iron hinges and I pushed it open easily. It was just the beginning of some remarkable discoveries.”
I showed my brother Pete what we had found and he organized a group of trusted friends to explore the mysteries left for us by our distant ancestors, to name just a few, of them, K Steve, K Mike, Angel Shai, Lady Dolly and well, too many to mention. Kitties at The Feline Studies Center have been cataloguing the discoveries for many years now and they have barely scratched the surface of what the Angel Kitties left for us to study. After speaking with my angel sisters, I have decided that now is the time for all of you to see and study our historical heritage. This afternoon Lady Quincy will see that you are all outfitted with the necessary clothes and gear to safely explore the tunnels. K Whiskers and K Pete will teach you how to do it safely.
Tomorrow morning, after church, I’ll lead you to what we have discovered so far and you can decide if you want to explore further. Ladies and Gentlecats, It is my profound honor to welcome you to the history of the Feline Empire!”

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, It's me Talley
COMING HOME
The seas were calm and the day was bright as the Luz de Luna approached the coast of Florida. The purchases that the kitties had made and all of their suitcases were all safely stored on pallets and ready to be loaded on to the truck that the Captain had arranged.
Talley had announced over breakfast, that another adventure was coming up, one that would take place on the grounds of the Castle. She wouldn’t elaborate, except to say that some of those present would recognize what they were going to see.
K Steve suddenly got a knowing look on his face, but held his tongue. He and Angel Shai exchanged a look and smiled.
Talley had discussed her idea with the family, when she had presented her plan, Angels Maggie, Lucy and Sylvie had given their enthusiastic approval. Pete and Whiskers had begun planning the logistics. The rest of the family pitched in to help plan this special event. Callie, Whitey and Orangie began to study all of the material that Talley had downloaded to their tablets.
The kitties speculated among themselves what the surprise could be. Some thought it would be a fabulous party, but others thought it would be more than that, Evie and Mojo both said that it would be pretty hard to throw any party better than those that they had enjoyed earlier in Talley’s reign.
Puzzle and PD Budd, had speculated that perhaps it involved some kind of spectacular scavenger hunt.
Lady Quincy knew what it was and she was excited, but could keep a Queen’s secret better than anyone.
For the moment though, the party aboard the Luz de Luna continued, they were approaching their berth at Dodge Island, and the tugs came alongside to ease the big ship to the pier.
When they were secured to the dock, the crew assembled on deck to bid their guests a fond goodbye, each of the kitties thanked each of the crew for an unforgettable cruise. Raven told the captain, that at the next scheduled dry-docking of the ship she wanted the crew to have extra paid vacation days to come and visit the family at their Angel Lake home.
The captain announced the news to the crew and there was a round of cheers and shouts of Hail to the Queen. There was a sincere general thank you from all of the crew directed to Raven as well. The crew was unanimous in their belief that they had never worked for a better run ship, or a better owner.
Angel Mallow had loaded the Hairballz Motorcycles aboard Feline Force One, many times. She was familiar with securing the loads properly, and now she directed the loading of the Pallets full of luggage and shopping.
Lady Quincy checked everyone in as they came aboard and Pete and Thundie ran the final checklists. Whiskers and Talley sat down and buckled up.
Once they had taken off, Talley addressed the guests, “I hope you’ve all had fun, and I know you’ll enjoy an evening at home. Tomorrow another adventure begins. I’ll see you all at the Castle for breakfast!”
There were cheers from everyone!

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, It's me Talley
The kitties all ate a very hearty breakfast, thinking that they’d need a good meal to prepare them for the hike up the telescope.
As they were finishing their last bites, Lady Quincy tapped her glass for their attention. When the room was quiet she began to speak. “Alla you kitties, I has somthin’ to tell you. Before we get ona busses we need to put alla cell phones in rooms. Nothin that makes a radio signal can be on the mountain, cause it would disturb the receivers at the telescope. We wouldn’t wanna ruin any of the science speremints that they doing.”
There were a few grumbles and Flower asked, “What about our cameras, Lady Quincy, can we take them?”
Quincy looked in her notes and said, “We can take digital cameras as far as the visitor center, and we can buy disposable film cameras there, that we can take up the mountain. It says here that the telescope is so sensitive that it could hear the computers in digital cameras.” Quincy laughed and said, I only hear my camera say CLICK.”
Raven said, “Before we load into the motor launches, I’ll go to the ship’s photo shop and get disposable cameras for us. Hurry everyone, we don’t want to be late, Quincy has arranged a special tour for us and our guide will be waiting.”
The kitties already had their day-bags packed and were quickly helped aboard the motor launches. The sea was still a little choppy as a result of the previous evening’s squalls, and some of the kitties got a little salt spray on their fur. Kaomi and Q Mimi took turns dring each other with a towel.
Duke PD Budd, was making notes on a yellow pad, and was no doubt getting background material for the further adventures of Furlip Merlow.
The buses were waiting and the kitties quickly climbed aboard with Lady Quincy checking everyone off of her list.
The road from San Juan to Arecibo ran along the coast and the view was lovely, which was good, as it distracted the kitties from paying too much attention to the narrowness of road, or the steepness of the drop. At one point, when another bus was coming the other way, Pete closed his eyes and said a quick prayer.
When they arrived at the visitor center, Whiskers and Talley led everyone off the buses and into the modern building, where their guide met them. He bowed toward Talley and said, “Welcome your Highness.”
Talley thanked him and the tour began. They learned that telescope was constructed over a dormant volcano and that it produced such a mass of data that SETI at Home had been created to look for patterns. (setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/) anyone who wished could sign up and use their computers to look for messages from deep space.
The climb up the mountain was tiring but the view was worth it! The great dish pointed at the sky and the stars beyond.
As they reboarded the busses, Talley said, we might have time for a little shopping in San Juan. All of the girls cheered and the guys just smiled at them

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, It's me Talley
Columbus Lighthouse - Off The Coast of Hispaniola
The dining salon was lovely, white linen table cloths and fine china were laid out, and fresh flowers graced every table. Crystal Chandeliers moved gently as the ship slowed. While orders for dinner were being taken by the waiters, one of the ships officers approached the Queens Table and whispered something in Raven’s ear. She nodded and thanked him. She stood and went around the table where she bent down and whispered something to Talley something to Talley. Talley tapped her water glass, and said, “May I have your attention for just a moment. The second officer has just informed us that we are approaching Hispaniola, and there is a very lovely sight ahead of us. There is a lighthouse on the point that was built as a memorial to Columbus, the Faro a Colon, It’s built in the shape of a cross and projects a cross shaped beam of light into the sky at night. Whiskers told me this morning that he was hoping we might be able to see it from the ship. It appears that he got his wish”
Talley continued, “The monument's lighthouse-style features project beams of light, forming a cross shape, that are so powerful they can be seen from neighboring Puerto Rico. Whiskers also tells me that the lighthouse contains what are purported to be the remains of Columbus.”
Whiskers nodded eagerly and added, “The lighthouse is both a mausoleum and a museum. If we can just delay ordering our dinner, and step out onto the deck, we can see the first of many amazing sights to come. Please follow me.”
Talley led the large crowd up the stairs to the helicopter deck, where they would have a good view when the Captain swung the ship to port allowing an unobstructed view of the distant shore. There was a breeze coming across the deck that smelled of tropical flowers and the thin crescent moon cast a pale glow over the sea. There in the distance the lighthouse with its brilliant beam was clearly visible.
Mischief asked, “Will we be seeing it from land?”
Raven answered, “We’ll be taking a motor coach tour in the morning and the Columbus light is one of our first stops.”
They all watched the beautiful light for several sweeps and K Steve broke the mood, by saying, “It’s beautiful all right, but dinner is waiting.” There was a round of laughter and murmurs of agreement. They returned to the dining salon and took their seats. It seemed that the most popular menu entrée was the surf and turf, Florida lobster and Kobe beef, filet mignon.

Whiskers and Pete both ordered the Prime Rib, very rare and Talley and Neekah Boo decided on the broiled Red Snapper.
Lady Quincy ordered Jumbo Shrimp, stuffed with crabmeat and an appetizer of popcorn shrimp and calamari with a spicy dipping sauce. She laughed, “Jumbo Shrimp that like saying Giant Midget.”
Talley announced, “After dinner, we’ll be awarding the trophies from last night’s contest, but I’m going to spoil the suspense and tell you. Every one of you is a winner. You all get trophies!”
When the food was served and Old Tom, one of the elderly shelter kitties, stood and said, “I would like to propose a toast, first to Queens Maggie and Angel Ginger, The shelter that you created has made a difference in so many lives. I’ve spent most of my life wondering where my next meal would come from, and now I actually get to choose what I want to eat. It seems like a dream. Second I would like to toast Queen Talley, who has included all of us in this wonderful celebration of history. What has happened over these last months has saved and changed lives. The kittens will grow up knowing love and friendship, we all have shelter and health care, we all have a future. I raise my glass to our Queens!”
The huge hall answered the toast with a general “Here, here of approval and a round of applause. Talley stood and asked Queens Maggie and Angel Ginger to join her in a toast to the shelter kitties. They stood, and raised their glasses, Talley cleared her throat and said, “To new friends, now safe from the mean back alleys, the dangerous streets and dark forests, we pledge our friendship and our love.”
There was more applause and then after dinner there was trophy presentation and more dancing.
The party went on far into the night!

Hi Precious Neekah Boo, It's me Talley,
Thursday at sea enroute to Hispaniola
They were under way on beautiful blue Caribbean. The sea was calm and the ship was running smoothly. Talley and Whiskers sat at the poolside lounge holding paws beneath an umbrella. A small quadcopter whizzed by close to their table and Whiskers looked around to see, Tabitha laughing. She called, “I think I got a good shot of you and Aunt Queen Talley, Uncle Whiskers!”
Whiskers laughed, and said, “I thought you were trying to trim my whiskers.”
Tabitha landed the quadcopter on the deck, picked it up and walked over to their table, “I would never hit anyone with the quadcopter uncle Whiskers. I follow the instructions."
Whiskers nodded, he should have known that his nieces and nephews would have read the instructions thoroughly and would heed them well. He said, “I wasn’t afraid Tabitha, I knew you wouldn’t hurt me, I was just teasing you.”
Tabitha hugged Whiskers and Talley and ran off to play.
Talley said, “The kids are having a good time, and I am too. It’s a lovely day and we’re making good time, we should be anchored off of Hispaniola by dinner time”
Whiskers leaned over and kissed Talley and said, “I’m having a wonderful time too. Flower showed me the memory book that they’re making while we’re on this trip. It’s fantastic. I think we should have copied as a book so that every kitty can have one.”
Talley smiled, “That’s a wonderful idea, Whiskers. We’ll do it.”
Hedley and Orangie were playing Shuffleboard with K Neelix and Katie, Jakar was the bar ordering drinks.
Pete and Neekah Boo were swimming in the pool, so were K Malachi and Ana. Mason Dixon and Chyna were at the base of the rock wall getting into the safety harness in preparation for an attempt to climb to the top.
The whole crowd seemed to be having a good time. Thundie came out onto the deck and announced that he and AQ Cherish were hosting a Dance Contest in the Main Deck Salon and any kitties were welcome to join in the fun.
K Mike & Lady Dolly both raised paws and Mike shouted, “Count us in!” Angel Mallow and Oscar Jon hurried to join up as did Angel Shai and Evie.
Thundie came over to Talley and asked, “We’d really appreciate it, if the two of you would be the judges for the contest.”
Talley accepted immediately, and Whiskers said, “I might have to see if the band knows any good swing music, or maybe I’ll ask them to play something special that Talley and I can dance to.”
Thundie grinned and said, “Let, me guess, ‘Till Then’?”
Talley laughed, “Oh Thundie you know us so well.”
K. Monty and Josie Mae, got up from their lounge chairs and Monty said, “We’ll be entering the Dance Contest too, we just need to change into some appropriate attire.”
Lady Quincy and Leo hurried to change, too.
Pete and Neekah Boo climbed out of the pool to go and change for the contest
The contest would be fun and Talley had already decided, that all of the contestants would be winners!

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, It's me Talley
Snorkeling gear had been passed out and the ships stewards made sure that every kitty had their box lunch. Preparations for a snorkeling trip to the reefs were underway. Everyone had enjoyed the early morning trip to the site of Columbus’ landing. They’d taken lots of pictures and then returned to the ship to get ready for and afternoon on the reefs.
The motor launches were alongside and ready to receive the kitties.
They all had their gear and the kids had their quadcopters. They all settled in for the short ride. As both boats moved over a calm sea, Local guides hired by the Captain of the ship pointed out attractions and explained what species of fish they were likely to see. The boats anchored and the crew deployed the swim platforms over the stern. Whiskers helped Talley over the transom and sat beside her, and then they both slipped into the clear water. Talley shouted, “Come on in the water is fine. The kitties donned their snorkeling gear and followed the guides over the reef.
The reef teemed with colorful fish, and at one point the guide cautioned them that a Moray eel lived in a particular crevice and it wouldn’t be good to disturb him. The guide said, “He is a grumpy eel and has been known to bite anyone who disturbs him.”
Flower looked closely as they swam by at a distance, but couldn’t see the grump eel.
Each suite had been provided with a gift basket and each basket contained waterproof cameras. Pete had explained over breakfast, how to use them. The kitties took pictures of fish and each other. Flower, Timothy, Ralph and Rosie told their Guide that they were going back to the boat. The guide watched them until they were safely in the boat and then continued leading the rest of the kitties on their snorkeling adventure.
Once aboard the kids got the quadcopters ready to fly and began taking pictures of the kitties who were snorkeling.
Evie, Mojo and Angel Mallow had decided it was y=time to eat lunch and when they told their guide they were going back, he agreed that it was time for all of them to go back.
The snorkeling tour was a great success, and as the kitties came aboard Lady Quincy carefully checked her list and ticked off the names. Everyone was accounted for. On the other boat Ms Murphy had done the same job. Everyone was safe and sound.
They ate their lunch in the boats, talking excitedly about what they had seen. Flower loaded his memory card into his tablet and passed it around for the group to see the pictures. There was one of K Steve submerging where all that could be seen of him was his butt. He looked at the picture and said, “Oh! really nice, you caught my best side!”
Everyone laughed. Talley joined in thinking that K Steve made every party come to life.
Pete towel dried Neekah Boo and then she dried him. Pete was as happy as he had ever been.
They headed back to the ship for a night of fun.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
We hope you all had a nice Labor Day holiday weekend. Our Dad fired up the barbeque yesterday and we had our next door neighbors, Abarna and Ganesh over for a little celebration. The temperature hit 96 degrees yesterday, so we all stayed inside. The rest of the week is supposed to be in the low 100’s. Yikes! We thought the hot weather was over. The mornings are cool, so Callie and I got our stroller walk. Whitey and Orangie are now always catnapping in the backyard when we get home. Our neighbor Abarna is doing well. My Mom found a great park nearby our house to take Abarna out to use her walker. It’s just a short drive and there are nice sidewalks with lots of trees for shade.
I’m doing fine too. I go back to the vet for my urine retest on the 21st.

Give your dear Mom a big hug for us sweetie. One for you too. We miss you and we always have you both in our prayers. K. Pete is bringing you to special CC events and occasionally over to our house for a visit, so we do get enjoy your pretty company, but we still miss your meow.

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

The animals are more ancient than us.
They were here for millennia before humans surfaced on the earth.
Animals are our ancient brothers and sisters.
They enjoy a seamless presence –
a lyrical unity with the earth.
Animals live outside in the wind,
in the waters, in the mountains, and in the clay.
The knowing of the earth is in them.
The Zen-like silence and thereness of the landscape
is mirrored in the silence and solitude of animals.
Animals know nothing of Freud, Jesus, Buddha,
Wall Street, the Pentagon, or the Vatican.
They live outside the politics of human intention.
Somehow they already inhabit the eternal.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
Our Mom took Callie and me on our stroller walk this morning and it was considerably cooler than yesterday- by ten degrees. When we got home, Whitey and Orangie were in the backyard lying down in their cat beds, watching the birds in the trees. The birds are always very active and noisy in the morning. Callie and I ran out to join them. Our Mom reminded us to just look and not eat. MOL!

Our neighbor Abarna is doing well, happy to be home and getting lots of purr therapy from Ebony and Sugar Bear. Abarna is doing so well, her doctor said it would be okay for my Mom to take Abarna out in her wheelchair for short walks around the block. The weather has been much too hot the past few days to take her outside, but we’re expecting a nice cool down beginning today.

We sure do miss you sweet furiend. We hope you and your Mom are doing well. We always you both in our thoughts and prayers. Take care beautiful kitty.

Hi Beautiful Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
My Mom spoke with my vet last night, looking over my x-rays very carefully. Since there are thankfully no signs of any obvious masses in my bladder, the vet has put me on another 10 day round of one antibiotic (a liquid antibiotic called Enrofloxacin). I’ll also be trying a new urinary stress cat food diet that the doctor recommends. My Mom still needs to go pick up my new food. Thanks to some concerned inquiries from my CC furiends, Mom will ask the vet if Renal Disease is a possibility and the obvious question- what IS the cause of the blood in my urine? My silly Mom always goes into a panic-mode at the vet, forgetting the important questions to ask. So she wrote them down AND she also emailed them to my vet. We’ll let you know what Dr. Natt says.

I’m not happy at all about taking more antibiotics. It has been over a month since my last dose, so I almost forgot about it. I knew something was up when I saw my Dad coming towards me while Mom held me. Yikes! But Mom gave me lots of hugs and kisses afterwards, so I forgave her quickly- until tonight that is. MOL!

Good mews! Ebony and Sugar Bear’s Mom Abarna is coming home today! Yippee! Her son will be bringing her home this evening. Ebony and Sugar Bear will be happily surprised when they see their Momma. My Mom stayed up late last night to make chicken vegetable barley soup - one pot for Abarna and one for us. Mom is getting good at making soups, since Dad has to be careful with what he eats while his gums are still healing. (Dad is still in the process of getting implants.)

Thanks again for all your get-well wishes, prayers and much appreciated advice. CC furiends are quite simply the best!

I'm sorry I haven't meowed at you for a few days. Mom and I have been spending too much time at the vet. Not my favorite place to hang out. MOL! I'm still feeling fine and don't understand what all the fuss is about. We hope you and your Mom are doing okay sweetie. We miss you lots and always have you both in our prayers.

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
The weather here today is overcast with a chance of a little bit of rain this evening. Hooray! Not much rain, but beggars can’t be choosy! MOL! We were all inside catnapping in the house. Mom took Dad to another dentist appointment. Our Dad still can’t get his implants done until his gums heal completely, so the dentist fitted him with a temporary bridge to wear where his bottom front teeth were pulled. Mom says they look great, but Dad is worried they might come flying out when he starts teaching and is talking in the front of the class. My Mom had to try very hard not to laugh!

Ebony and Sugar Bear’s Mom Abarna has been responding very well to the heart medications they are giving her for the abnormal heart rhythms she has been having. God willing, Abarna may be coming home very soon! Yay! Thank you for all the get-well wishes and prayers for our friend. It’s working!

My vet appointment tomorrow is at 9 a.m. sharp. I’m not sure how long all the tests and x-rays will take, but my Mom plans on waiting with me. Hopefully they’ll let her sit with me, but if not, she promised she wouldn’t leave without me. We’ll let you know how it goes.

Give your sweet Mom a hug for us. We love you both and always have you in our prayers.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
I went to the vet for my urine retest yesterday and we got the results back late last night. They aren’t too good. After two months of antibiotics for my UTI, the vet is concerned about the high numbers in my hemoglobin and red blood cell count. They went down compared to my last test results, but not enough. So we have two options; one is keep me on yet another round of different antibiotics; the other is to shoot some abdominal radiographs to get a better idea as to why I still have blood in my urine.:( My pawrents are meeting with my vet this afternoon. I’ll keep you posted dear furiends.

Ebony and Sugar Bear’s Mom Abarna had a good day at the hospital yesterday. She is responding to the new medications for the abnormal heart rhythms she has been experiencing after her bypass surgery. The doctors are hopeful. Thank you for all your prayers and get well wishes for our friend. It’s working!
~~~
Update on what’s next at the vet for me...
My pawrents had the meeting with my vet, Dr. Natt, about the next plan of action for me. It was decided it is futile to try any more antibiotics to lower the red blood cell count that keeps showing up in my urine samples. So Friday, I am having a full blood work up done, thyroid test and x-rays taken of my bladder. The vet’s office where we usually go, is not equipped for the tests I need done. My Vet has a second, much larger facility that I’ll need to go to. It’s a longer drive from our house, so Dad took Mom on a ride today to show her how to get there without getting lost.

I almost forgot - I haven’t lost any more weight, which is good, but I only gained an ounce. I weighed in at 10.6 pounds. I used to weigh almost 15 pounds! I really don’t feel sick at all. I told my Mom I’m at my purrfect fighting weight. MOL!

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

A Note From Mom Mandy... I asked the vet if she thought it might be cancer, but she wouldn’t say. Dr. Natt said she’ll be checking the x-rays for any masses. It could very well be a tumor, or simply a cyst. She doesn’t know at this point. Plus the blood CBC and chemistry profile will give her a better idea of what’s going on with Whiskers. I’m a bundle of nerves and I’m trying not to pass it on to my baby boy. Whiskers seems just fine right now. I thank God for that!

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
We’ve missed meowing to our furiends the past couple of days, but we made it to Queen Maggie and Queen Angel Ginger’s Coronation and it was beautiful! Since it’s an all day affair, we’re hoping to make it back later. I’m never one to pass up on the delicious food at the Castle!

We wish we had better mews about our neighbor Abarna, who is recovering from heart surgery, but she has had a rough few days. Abarna’s doctors are concerned with the abnormalities in her heart rhythm. The fear of a blood clot forming is what has us all worried. The doctors and hospital staff have been very nice - very attentive and keeping us informed with what’s happening.

We are all doing fine. The weather is back in the 80’s so we’ve been able to sun a bit longer in the backyard, watching the birds and catnapping. We hope to see you at the Castle this weekend!

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
Whew! We had major computer problems yesterday so we weren’t able to finish our meows to all our furiends. Turns out there was an infected file in Mom’s computer, causing it to keep locking up! Mom found the bad file using our “MacKeeper” utility and was able to delete it. She had to reinstall the browser,“Google Chrome,” and while she was cleaning her computer I suggested she backup all my priceless CC blogs from our furiends. It looks like we’re good to go now!

Mom visited Abarna, our next door neighbor, at the hospital yesterday and will go back later this afternoon. Abarna has family from out of town visiting her, so that has lifted her spirits. Mom gives her daily reports on Ebony and Sugar Bear, which makes her smile too. The two kitties are doing fine

Mom got a surprise call from Pepper’s Mom. (Pepper was the little gray kitty that was lost, but now reunited with her family.) Her Mom called to say Pepper is doing very well and enjoys her mew cat tree. The cat tree has three tiers, the top being a small A-framed house for her to hide. It turns out Pepper likes her privacy and has been sleeping in the A-frame house at night! The little yappy dog she lives with is beginning to settle down and accept Pepper as his new housemate.

Today the temps are supposed to be in the three digits (yikes!), but tomorrow it will start to cool back down.

The night is my safety, the day is my warmth.
I'm proud but not vain. Simple things delight me.

I love to be loved, but love when I choose.
I adapt very quickly, but prefer my routine.
I am curious to a fault.
I am beautiful, and I'm clean, and I know it.

My soft voice can comfort, my anger is clear.
I practice my agility so none can compare.
I am what I am, and I would be no other,
I am cat! And that's that!

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
The little lost gray kitty is back with her family! My Mom had thought the little kitty was a male, but in fact, “HE” is really a “SHE.” (Shows you how much my Mom knows!)

Late Thursday night we got a call from a young man saying he saw one of the “Found Cat” flyers that my Mom had posted on the walking trail by our house and he thought it looked like his Mom's cat whom had been missing for 4 months. It was late, so we had to wait until the next day to meet with them.

Friday morning it was confirmed! The kitty is named Pepper and she is three years old. Apparently the Mom recently moved in with her daughter and Pepper ran away during the move over 4 months ago. Their home is less than a mile away from us! It was a heartwarming reunion. The lady was recovering from some sort of major surgery, so she looked very weak. When Mom put Pepper in her arms, she broke into tears.

The lady expressed concern about her daughter having a small dog in the house and she thought that was why Pepper ran away. We happened to have an extra cat tree for Pepper to use as an escape from the doggie. Mom and Dad drove to her house, set up the cat tree in her bedroom and told her the cat just needs to be able to escape somewhere safe from the dog. The dog is a small Chihuahua and very yappy. Mom advised her to give them both time to get acquainted, but NOT to let the cat outside for a few weeks. Mom also suggested getting Pepper a microchip, just in case. We are so relieved for Pepper and her family! We know all your prayers helped and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

More good mews- our neighbor Abarna is doing much better after her heart attack and bypass surgery. Mom visits her every day and gives her updates on Ebony and Sugar Bear, who are both doing fine. The doctors won’t say when Abarna might be released from the hospital, but her primary doctor said if she keeps improving the way she is, she might be back home late next week.

Give your dear Mom a soft hug for us sweet furiend. We hope all is well and we always have you both in our prayers.

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

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
My Mom got two calls in response to her “Found Cat” flyer. Mom didn’t feel comfortable giving out our home address to strangers, so she arranged to meet both parties at a nearby shopping center. So off they went, the little gray kitty and Mom on a field trip. Sadly, our little lost furiend was not the cat either family was searching for. We can tell our Mom is already getting attached to the little guy, but she knows he deserves a good home as an inside kitty. Thankfully if we don’t find his real family, he’ll have a new one waiting for him with the lady from Alley Cat Allies.
