Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
We are praying your trip to the vet today goes well. We sure hope your house gets fixed soon so all the loud construction noise stops! I'm trying to do my best as your substitute teacher today! I hope I make you proud!

My Mom was able to successfully give our new outside fursib, Sugar Bear, her first dose of antibiotics last night. Sugar Bear’s nose is looking better today, if that’s possible. It might be wishful thinking on my Mom’s part. This morning both Sugar Bear and her furiend Ebony were waiting for breakfast, so thankfully Sugar Bear isn’t too mad at Mom.

Callie and I went out for our cat stroller walk this morning and there was a light mist falling. My Mom put the cover on our stroller so we wouldn’t get wet, but it felt nice coming through the front screen. We hope you all have a relaxing Tuesday!

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

More Ways To Prevent Your Human From Wasting Valuable Time =^.^=

Cleaning: stalk the vacuum cleaner and attack when it passes by. You can also pretend that you want to attack the vacuum cleaner but "accidentally" catch a foot instead. (A sure way to get the vacuum monster shut off immediately!)

Garden work: jump repeatedly up-and-down and scatter any leaves that your human has raked together. Attack gardening tools, especially while they are in use. Immediately dig up any newly planted seeds, plants and flowers.

Under no circumstances accept closed doors that separate you from your human. At all times you have a right to know what your human is doing. If by accident you have been placed on the wrong side of a door you need to make your human aware of this ASAP so he/she can remedy the situation immediately. Loud meows and scratching on the door should be sufficient to get your human's attention. If this is ignored you need to take more drastic measures: Make a sound as if you are going to throw up. All humans in a 50 feet radius can hear this sound. This sound can also be heard through closed doors. The "puke sound" will always result in your human's immediate presence.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
We have you in our prayers dear furiend. We hope all goes well at the vet. We are honored to be substituting for you for part of day at Back To School tomorrow. We'll do our best sweetie!

Our new outside fursib Sugar Bear went to the vet today because of a scab on her nose. The vet is treating her for an infection. The doctor doesn’t think it’s an allergy because Sugar Bear isn’t scratching a lot. So Sugar Bear got a penicillin shot and the rest of her booster shots. The vet also gave my Mom some Clavamox oral antibiotic drops to give Sugar Bear twice a day. The vet knows Sugar Bear is still an outside kitty right now, but she told my Mom to just try her best to give Sugar Bear the medicine.

Sugar Bear weighed 6.4 lbs when Mom took her in 2 weeks ago. Today she weighed 7 lbs! The vet told my Mom Sugar Bear is so small and docile, she’ll have a much better chance at surviving at our house, than going back to her feral colony. Mom was happy to hear the vet say that, even though it’s already been decided.

When Mom and Sugar Bear got back home, Ebony was waiting by the garage door for her furiend. It made my Mom’s eyes tear up. Those two kitties are such good furiends. When Mom let Sugar Bear out of the carrier, she started to run away, but turned around when she heard a can of cat food opened. Ebony and Sugar Bear ate heartily together. :)

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

P.S. I’ll continue my “How to Care for Your Humans...” tomorrow! That darn Mom of mine ran out of time! MOL!

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
We had a great time at King Spanky’s Castle Game Night yesterday. I’m still recovering from the dunking booth! I noticed a lot of my furiends suddenly had very good aim when I was on the dunking seat. MOL! My sister Callie kept buying tickets to get in line until thankfully for me, she ran out of catbucks! (Hee, hee, hee...I know where she lives!)

My Mom hasn’t heard back from the Alley Cat Allies lady, with information on Ebony, our new black cat furiend. Sugar Bear, the little momma cat has something on the bridge of her nose that looks kind of like a grayish colored scab. Sugar Bear is still eating great and running around like a kitten, but Mom doesn’t like the look of her nose, so Sugar Bear is going back to the vet on Monday. Hopefully it’s nothing serious. We’ll let you know what happens.

Other than that, it’s a quiet Sunday with temps in the mid eighties. Nice catnapping weather!

Grass Etiquette =^.^=

Before you eat grass, make sure that you are close to a suitable place to throw up. Delicate furniture fabrics, precious carpets, and shoes are all good places. If you choose furniture: aim for the part that has non-removable fabric. When you are getting down to business, make sure you back up a step or two so that you cover the largest area possible. Another technique is to do several items with pauses in-between. Persian carpets will provide a good camouflage effect and your little gift will often not be discovered until somebody steps in it.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
My Mom understands how your Mom worries about adding another kitty to the household. My Mom's stomach gets tied up in knots just thinking about it. We'll just have to take it day by day.

Neekah Boo is doing a wonderful job on Cathugger. All the kitties love her. Too bad real life with cats isn't as easy! MOL!

My sister Callie and I have been taking our cat stroller walks a little bit later since Dad is back at work. We wave goodbye to Dad and are out the door by 6 a.m. But sadly, we haven’t seen any deer. It must be too late in the day for them. My Mom still fills the bucket with water and it’s always empty when we get there.

No word on our new outside furiend Ebony yet. My Mom returned the microchip scanner to Denise, the Alley Cat Allies lady, yesterday and we’re waiting for her to get back to us. Denise did say she is pretty sure Ebony is a male, since his left ear had been clipped when he was neutered. Denise said it should be a veterinary protocol to always clip the left ear of a TNR male feral cat, and the right ear of a female cat. (But the protocol is not always followed.) Mom feels it in her bones that Ebony is a male. Ebony is so cool and calm, like me. MOL! Oh, oh... Callie just gave me the “Evie” evil eye! Hee hee! (You have to know K. Mike, his sister Evie and their family to get that joke!).

Prevent Your Human From Wasting Valuable Time =^.^=

One of the most important tasks we cats have is to prevent humans from wasting their time. Humans love to spend their time on things with no relevance for cats. For example watching TV, reading, talking on the phone - and many other things that have no entertainment value for us cats whatsoever. Many methods are available to prevent human time waste - use your imagination. Some especially effective techniques will be mentioned here.

Watching TV: make sure that you always position yourself between the TV and your human. On the coffee table for example. You can also lie on the TV and let your tail or paws swing down in front of the screen. This method is most effective with small screens where you can cover a large percentage of the screen. It is a bit trickier with a flat screen - and only recommended for the agile kitty. A variation can be used with a computer screen. Flat screens often leave a lot of empty space on the desk - so just get up in front - remind your human of how wonderful you are.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
We are really having a terrific time in school with you as our lovely teacher! It's great to see you are going to get help from a couple of other smart & wonderful teachers! Great job sweetie!

My Mom and I are running a little behind in my blogging today and she just let the dreaded vacuum monster loose. Yikes!

My Mom was able to get a reading on Ebony’s microchip number last night. Mom is meeting with Denise, the Alley Cat Allies lady, later today. We should learn more about Ebony’s past history soon.

All of us kitties are fine, catnapping the day away, until now that is. I better go find my favorite hiding spot from the vacuum monster!

Wangling Extra Food =^.^=

All chances for a bit of extra food must and should be taken advantage of. Whenever your human is in the kitchen, you have a prime opportunity of getting an extra snack. When your human is busy at the kitchen counter place yourself in your humans blind angle (just behind the ankle is usually a good spot). And the second your human moves one or both feet you jump back screaming your most heart- wrenching cry. Your human will automatically assume that he/she stepped on you. When your human looks back scared to see what is happening look up at him/her with a painful expression on your face (practice this before hand in front of a mirror). Your human's bad conscience will often result an edible apology.

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
My sisters and I had a great time learning at school today. You and Mr. Kibbles are fabulous teachers! Thanks so much Miss Neekah Boo. I'll bring my pretty teacher an apple tomorrow.

We hope you and your family had a wonderful Wednesday day. Here is an update on our new outside furiends, Sugar Bear and Ebony...

Mom had a meeting with Denise, the lady from Alley Cats Allies organization. They are trying to find out which Feral Cat Colony Ebony came from and if it is the same colony Sugar Bear came from. Sugar Bear’s chip showed she came from across town and should have been put back in her neighborhood. :(

Anyway... Denise (the Alley Cat Allies lady) loaned my Mom a “Universal Worldscan Pocket Reader.” It is manufactured by “HomeAgain Pet Rescuers.” When my Mom got home, she tried the scanner out on Callie and me first. We all have microchips. The scanner worked great on both of us. Then Mom went outside and sure enough Ebony and Sugar Bear came running up the driveway when they heard the “Temptations” bag rattling. My Mom got close enough to Ebony to get a quick reading, but then Ebony got spooked and ran away from Mom. Mom wrote down the microchip number that came up. The microchip number is a lot different than ours and Sugar Bears, so Mom is going to try for a second reading tonight. Mom is afraid the scanner might have gotten a bad reading. Ebony is now looking at Mom with caution! MOL! I told my Mom to take a deep breath, relax and talk softly the next time she approaches Ebony. The scanner is a bit big and Ebony was a little frightened by the size of the digital scanner in Mom’s hand. Actually, Callie and I were both startled when Mom scanned us, but we know she means well - and it didn’t hurt at all!

Shed Hair Freely =^.^=

Make it a priority to shed indoors on appropriate surfaces. Fleece is a particularly suitable material to shred on. All you need to do is pass close by your human when he or she is wearing fleece. All cat hair within a radius of two feet from the fabric will immediately be transferred to your human. No brushing necessary for several days!

Another good solution is to get access to a filled clothes hamper. Jump in and give all contents a good work over. An extra bonus with this method is that most cat hairs will survive a trip to the washing machine. Your human will be stylishly accessorized with cat hair on all outfits.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
Great job at school today! You are a wonderful teacher! See you tomorrow sweetie.

It’s a nice sunny day, perfect for catnapping. My Mom spoke to the lady from Alley Cats Allies this morning and learned a little bit more about Sugar Bear, one of our two new outside furiends. Apparently Sugar Bear is from a Feral Cat colony located on the other side of town from us. Sugar Bear should have been returned to her colony where she is familiar with her surroundings. The Alley Cat Allies lady (her name is Denise) is trying to figure out how this happened so it doesn’t happen again. She said a TNR cat that is not returned to his or her neighborhood could easy be frightened and killed. Denise wants to find out if the second cat, Ebony, is also from the same colony. Maybe that’s why the two kitties are such good furiends. Denise wants my Mom to try to scan the microchip in Ebony so she can get to the bottom of this. My Mom is going to meet Denise tomorrow so Denise can loan my Mom the scanner. Ebony is still very skittish around Mom, but Mom has been trying to earn Ebony’s trust.

My Mom asked Denise if would be in the cats’ best interest to go back to where they lived. Denise said she would normally say yes, but since Sugar Bear and Ebony have each other and Mom is willing to care for them, then they should both be fine here. We’ll let you all know what happens.

Entertaining your Human =^.^=

The litter box provides a great opportunity for entertaining your human. Naturally there is all the fun your human can have cleaning and scooping out the box. A lot of human time can also be used getting fresh litter - going to the pet store, transporting it home etc. However many humans like new challenges. Utilize your litter box time in the best possible way. Make interesting and artistic renderings of countries or well-known islands. Your human will have lots of fun guessing which one you made. Humans like game shows - so this should be a popular activity. When your human increases in skill, you can also make portraits of family and friends. Start with profile portraits - this will make it easer for your human.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
We are loving school with you as our pretty teacher on Cathugger! You are so smart and beautiful. Thanks for all your hard work dear furiend. We'll try to study hard!

Today is our Dad’s first day back at school. School doesn’t begin for the kids until Tuesday, but the teachers have meetings on Monday. Our weather is very nice, in the low eighties, so Callie and I will be sunning on the deck for a while. Whitey and Orangie are already sunning in the bedroom window.

The outside kitties Sugar Bear and Ebony, ate very well this morning. Sugar Bear loves playing with her Cosmic Catnip banana. She already chewed right through the first one and is on her second one! Mom needs to make a trip to Petco this week.

How to Care for Your Humans...
(Useful Advice for Cats - Part 1)
~~~~~
For us cats there are several sweet advantages in having a human as a pet. However, remember you are taking on a big responsibility when you adopt one or more humans. Humans are demanding pets that need daily care and attention.
With responsibility come both advantages and disadvantages. If you adopt a human, you must get used to spending time at home. Your human does not deal well with being left alone - they will get into all sorts of mischief. For example, if you are gone just two or three days you run the risk of seeing posters put up all over the neighborhood. Your human will put out an APB on you! Often it will include an embarrassing text that reveals all sorts of personal details - and usually accompanied by an unflattering photo of you - with morning fur and crumpled whiskers. Exactly the kind of thing that attracts ridicule from all the neighbor cats.

So please consider carefully if you are ready for a life with humans. In addition, remember humans generally grow very old, so there is a big chance that you will spend the rest of your life with your human.

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
We stopped by the Blues Lounge to see your beautiful picture as our Cat of the Month and leave you a concatulations message. We're glad your Mom is back home and you are all doing well. We always have you and your family in our prayers dear furiend.

My Mom got an email from the Alley Cat Allies’ lady who had been helping her with Sugar Bear, the black momma cat. The nice lady said she would like to come out to meet both Sugar Bear and Ebony. She looked up the microchip number that was placed inside Sugar Bear and apparently Sugar Bear (who was a TNR cat), was returned to the wrong neighborhood. She is wondering about Ebony too. The Alley Cat Allies’ lady is perplexed and wants to see if Sugar Bear should be relabeled as adoptable. It’s all a bit confusing to our Mom, so Mom would love to speak to the lady and hopefully figure out what is going on.

My Mom is ready to take care of both cats and is in the process of getting some outdoor housing up for them. But if Sugar Bear has a chance to go to a loving home, then she wants whatever is best for the little cat. Ebony is not too friendly and seems older, so he (or she) is here to stay.

Whitey and Orangie were running up and down the stairs this morning around 1 a.m., sounding like little horses in the house. Mom thought it was me and got up to put me back to bed. I heard Mom calling my name and I waved my paw at her. I was right by her feet! So we were all surprised to see Whitey & Orangie playing together like kittens! Then it took furever for all of us to get back to sleep. MOL!

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
It was another lazy day for us kitties. Mom and Dad were gone most of the morning, but didn’t forget to come back with treats for all of us.

The outside cats are doing very well. Mom finally named the momma cat “Sugar Bear” and the big black cat that is her constant companion, “Ebony.” Both cats have been eating their food twice a day and Sugar Bear doesn’t look so skinny anymore. My Dad made a snide comment that Sugar Bear is starting to look like one of Mom's cats. Hey! I think he might have been insulting me. Humph! Doesn’t he know it’s World Cat Day?! MOL!

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
You’ll never believe it, but we finally got some rain showers here today! Whoo hoo! Okay, actually just a little drizzle, but it lasted for almost 5 hours this morning, watering all the vegetation around the walking trail. Mom took Callie and me on our cat stroller walk this morning and the rain mist felt nice. We didn’t see any deer today, but we’re hoping they were off frolicking in the mist.

Our two new outside cats are doing really well. Both cats were making good use of Whitey & Orangie’s Igloo in the front yard. Mom keeps it cozy with clean blankets and a bed inside, and the two cats were snuggled together inside this morning.
My Mom ordered a new outdoor cathouse that she found on the internet. It’s insulated, has a removable door flap to block out rain and wind, has an entry overhang with shingles that match the roof and even has a small escape door on the side with a flap that only works from the inside, so no animal can use it from the outside It should be here in a couple of weeks. Mom is hopeful the cats will use it, since they seem comfortable with the Igloo. Keep your paws crossed.

My Mom found out the reason for the microchip in the little momma cat, placed by the Feral Freedom Organization. Feral cats are trapped, neutered and released after being deemed under-socialized, with no major health issues. The microchip is registered to the San Jose Animal Control, signaling the cat has been returned to his or her colony where he or she was captured. Feral Freedom members should have left door hangers around the neighborhood, letting the people know what was happening. That sure would have helped my Mom. But now Mom knows how to recognize the TNR cats. Mom will continue to leave food out during the day like always. Mom has only seen the two black cats, so that is her main focus for now. Mom can’t believe the little momma cat was flagged as an unadoptable cat. The little momma is very loving and let’s Mom handle her. The other black cat is extremely skittish, not letting Mom get too close yet, but always the momma cat's constant companion.

We hope you are doing fine dear furiend. We always you and your precious family in our prayers. Give your Mom and Fatty big hugs for us.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
My Mom took the little black momma cat to my vet. It turns out the kitty is spayed already AND she has a microchip registered under "Feral Freedom." Apparently the cat had kittens and was spayed on 07/01/2014. The vet checked the cat's nipples and they look okay. There were still some stitches left in her tummy from being spayed, so the vet took them out. The vet also gave her injections for FVR-CP, FELV and Rabies. Mom also had her put some Revolution Flea medicine on her. The momma cat doesn't appear to have fleas, but just in case.

The vet and my Mom tried calling the Feral Freedom Organization to find out more about the cat, but there was only an answering machine. We have the cat's microchip number, so we’ll keep trying to find why there is a microchip in the little cat.

The little black cat is so cute. My Mom was afraid the momma cat would be mad at her, but last night and this morning she was rubbing all over my Mom’s legs and playing with her Cosmic Catnip banana doing the bunny kick. Mom was even able to easily pick her up and pet her. The momma cat and her feline furiend were sitting on the roof of the outside cat feeding station, looking very happy. Mom’s next project is to get a nice outdoor cathouse for the two cats.

My Mom is still in contact with the lady from Alley Cat Allies, hoping the two cats can still be adopted. In the meantime, they seem to be happy here.

Hi Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
Today was Petco Day for us and our Mom didn’t let us down. She got everything on our list! Callie and I got to see two deer on our walk this morning, Mom filled up their water bucket and even though they watched us from far away, they didn’t run off. Callie and I waved at them as we strolled by.

My Mom is preparing to catch the momma cat tonight for her visit to the vet in the morning. My Mom is nervous, but is trying to remain calm and think pawsitive. Hopefully we’ll have good mews tomorrow. If the vet tells my Mom the cat is still nursing, Mom will bring her right back home. If not, Mom wants to get the little momma fixed. We're hoping the vet will be able to give us the right advice.

The Cat (A Funny Story) =^.^=
~~~~~
A pastor had a kitten that climbed up a tree in his backyard and then was afraid to come down. The pastor coaxed, offered warm milk, etc. The kitty would not come down.

The tree was not sturdy enough to climb, so the pastor decided that if he tied a rope to his car and drove away so that the tree bent down, he could then reach up and get the kitten.

He did all this, checking his progress in the car frequently, then figured if he went just a little bit further, the tree would be bent sufficiently for him to reach the kitten. But as he moved a little further forward, the rope broke.

The tree went "boing!" and the kitten instantly sailed through the air - out of sight.

The pastor felt terrible.

He walked all over the neighborhood asking people if they'd seen a little kitten. No. Nobody had seen a stray kitten. So he prayed, "Lord, I just commit this kitten to your keeping," and went on about his business.

A few days later he was at the grocery store and met one of his church members. He happened to look into her shopping cart and was amazed to see cat food. Now this woman was a cat hater and everyone knew it, so he asked her, "Why are you buying cat food when you hate cats so much?"

She replied, "You won't believe this," and told him how her little girl had been begging her for a cat, but she kept refusing. Then a few days before, the child had begged again, so the Mom finally told her little girl, "Well if God gives you a cat, I'll let you keep it!"

She told the pastor, "I watched my child go out in the yard, get on her knees, and ask God for a cat. And really, Pastor, you won't believe this, but I saw it with my own eyes.

A kitten suddenly came flying out of the blue sky, with its paws outspread, and landed right in front of her."

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
Today was grocery-shopping day for our pawrents, so we had the house to ourselves this morning. Whitey & Orangie actually ventured downstairs to join Callie and me. We stayed on opposite sides of the room, but that’s okay. Mom was very proud of us. Tomorrow is Petco day, so I’ll be making my list later. MOL!

We didn’t see any deer on our cat stroller walk this morning, but we did see some cute raccoons. They watched my Mom as she filled up the bucket with water.

The little momma cat is still coming here to eat, but sadly no kittens have shown up. Mom is going to try to take the little momma cat to the vet Monday morning. Keep your paws crossed.

We had a wonderful time at King Spanky’s Coronation yesterday. We’ll miss Queen Angel Wendy, but she deserves a nice vacation. We can hardly wait to get to know Lil’ Bear better. She sure is a beautiful black kitty.

We hope your Mom has forgiven you for climbing on the banister. I know you don't want to worry your dear Mom on purpose! We love you sweetie and always have you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

Creatures Of God
~~~~~
Animals bring to us a love not found in (the) humankind.
Theirs is a love of unspoken warmth,
companionship, and tenderness.
Theirs is an unconditional love, born out
of trust and loyalty.

All creatures in nature are created
from God’s love
And formed in His true delight.

Each has a special place in the
cycle of life.
Whether fur, feather, quill, scale,
skin, or hide,
Their existence is essential to the
balance and continuation
Of harmony in our universe.

The comfort we receive from earthly
creatures is soulful,
And at times heavenly.

The bond between animals and humans is one
not easily broken.
Even in death,
Beloved animals stir love, comfort, and
fond memories.

We learn so much from the simple lives
and love of animals
Let us always remember to hold them
firmly in our love,
As they hold us firmly in their trust.

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
It was a crazy day here today. Dad had car problems that took all morning away from us, but his car is back from the mechanic and fixed. Then my Mom went to visit our vet, just to chat face to face about the little momma cat we are feeding. Still no sign of the kittens. The good news is Mom was able to pet the little momma cat this morning and even brought her one of our catnip banana toys to play with. The momma cat grabbed the catnip banana and proceeded to bunny kick it while laying on her side. Mom could have easily picked her up. The vet thinks Mom might want to try picking up the little cat and bringing her in for a check up, to see if she is still nursing. If she is, then my Mom can bring her right back home. If not, then Mom needs to have her fixed and vaccinated. Mom is going to wait until the cat is comfortable with being picked up. (Something she still can’t do with Whitey!)

It will be less traumatic on the cat if Mom can pick her up and take her to our vet, instead of taking her to the animal shelter (even though they have been very helpful and we will need them once we find the kittens.)

It was a warm day here again, in the mid 90’s. We saw two deer on our cat stroller walk this morning and two raccoons walking along the trail. The water bucket is always empty when we fill it up.:)

I left a vote with soft purrs, hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need. We are always thinking of you kitties and hope all is well with you, Fatty and your sweet Mom.

All Things Bright and Beautiful =^.^=
~~~~~
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
each little bird that sings,
he made their glowing colors,
he made their tiny wings.

The purple-headed mountain,
the river running by,
the sunset, and the morning
that brightens up the sky.

The cold wind in the winter,
the pleasant summer sun,
the ripe fruits in the garden,
he made them every one.

He gave us eyes to see them,
and lips that we might tell
how great is God Almighty,
who has made all things well.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
It was hot again here today, about 92 degrees, but cooler than yesterday. My Mom fed the little black momma cat twice today, morning and afternoon. Both times the little cat ate a whole can of cat food. There still has been no sign of any kittens, but Mom remains hopeful. The momma cat let Mom get closer to her today. My Mom sat nearby while the momma cat ate her food, talking softly to her. This was progress. Up until now, the cat wouldn’t eat until Mom went back inside the house. Just like she did with Whitey and Orangie, my Mom is taking baby steps. We are just worried about the hot weather and hoping the kittens are safe somewhere.:(

My Cat =^.^=
~~~~~
My cat rubs my leg
and starts to purr
with a soft little rumble,
a soft little whirr--
as if she has motors
inside of her.

I say, "nice kitty!"
and stroke her fur,
and though she cant' talk
and I can't purr,
She understands me,
and I do her.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
My Mom is trying to take care of a cat she had been feeding outside, discovering last night the cat is a girl and looks as if she has just had kittens.
My Mom is so dense, at first she thought the cat was pregnant when she saw the cat’s enlarged breasts, but the cat is very thin. So my Mom called several animal shelters for advice on how to handle the situation. The best advice came from a place called Alley Cat Allies and of course from some good friends right here on CC. The cat probably has her kittens hidden and is nursing them. Mom had planned on trapping the cat and taking her to be fixed, but since the cat has kittens somewhere, the advice is to let her alone, feed her and gain her trust. Then hopefully, in three to five weeks, the cat will bring her kittens to eat here when they are old enough, and then my Mom can trap all of them and have them fixed. The nice people at Alley Cat Allies told my Mom afterwards, they would help us find homes for them.

But in the meantime, my Mom has been walking all over the neighborhood, asking people to look out for any kittens and let us know right away. Mom searched the streets and the trail by the creek, but no luck.

Please keep your paws crossed for the momma cat and her kittens,. We’ll keep you updated on the progress.

Tonight, the mom cat came to eat and let my Mom touch her. She is such a small cat, my Mom feels confident she’ll be able to pick her up easily. We just need to find the babies.

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

P.S. The momma cat is a beautiful black cat. I posted a picture of her on my page..

A Happy Ending =^.^=

The greatest thing I've ever known,
Someone came and took me home,
Away from the track; hope I'll never go back!
Like a nightmare in my memory, my future looked black,
Then I was adopted and my life spared.
I thank God everyday that someone cared;
'Cause this must be heaven, I'm a winner this time,
Got some catnip, a toy, and a bed all mine.
And I'm crazy 'bout my family;
Devoted, you might say.
Like a shadow beside them.
You can bet I want to stay!
And I'm special too, they call me "sweetheart,"
And they hug and kiss me and tell me I'm smart.
Even dreams are peaceful now; no stress or strife.
And I run for fun, 'stead of running for my life!

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
My Mom took Callie and me for our early morning walk in our cat stroller, but we still haven’t seen the deer for a few days. The bucket of water we leave is always empty so we know some poor thirsty animal is drinking it. That’s all that really matters, but we keep hoping to see our furiends the deer.

It’s a hot day here, with temps topping out at 101 degrees. We’re all looking forward to Queen Angel Wendy’s trip to Philadelphia this weekend. K. Pete has all of us Royal Pilots shuttling the CC kitties to the city for our stay at the Ritz-Carlton. Talley and I have our dancing shoes all packed and ready to go. We'll see you there sweetie! K. Pete has arranged for us to all be on the same floor at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel! We'll have a ball together!

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
It was so wonderful to hear from you and we are happy you and your family are doing well. I'm so glad K. Pete is posting his blogs for you to read on Cathugger. We don't go over there too often, but we always include you and Fatty in our CC blogs. You and your family are always in out thoughts and prayers dear furiend. We hope things are going good for your sweet Mom too. Give her and Fatty big hugs for us.

We had a power outage in our neighborhood today. We’re still not sure if it was caused by the warm weather. If it was, this will be a long summer!

It started out as a house cleaning day with the vacuum monster on the loose, but the power outage sure fixed that. MOL! I swear I didn’t have anything to do with it!

A Cat Treat =^.^=
~~~~~
I have never known a love of that,
Which consists more
Than the love of my cat.
He’s cozy and happy…
At times he’s aloof.
But that constant warm affection
Is Gods living proof.
Instincts still present;
The pounce on a string
Though tiger no more,
No less still a king.
He guards like on duty;
Pressed close to my side
Yet often quite moody-
Can sense if I’ve cried.
Awaits there to greet me,
Perhaps earning his keep,
The squint of his eyes,
What he sow, I do reap.

We hope all is well with you and your precious family dear furiend. We are always thinking of you and sending prayers your way.

It’s another hot and humid day here. We even got a few rain drops, but the ground soaked them right up. I was sitting outside on the deck when a couple of rain drops hit me on the head. I came running inside as fast as I could. MOL!

Callie and I got to go for a walk in our cat stroller, but our furiends the deer were nowhere to be seen. Mom filled up the empty bucket with water and we sat down for a while to wait, but still no deer. We hope they are all right and will try again tomorrow.

EYES =^.^=
~~~~~
Another day has come and gone,
I lie in bed; is something wrong?
I cannot sleep; I toss and turn,
I know not what it is I yearn.
Then he comes in dead of night,
He brings compassion to my plight.
He perches there upon my chest,
He somehow knows that I need rest.
He peers at me with knowing eyes,
Oh how sage, for one his size.
He gently pats me on my chin,
Then a lullaby, he soon begins.
He sings and purrs deep within his soul,
His love is true – so brave and bold.
He never speaks a single word,
Yet, his message - loudly heard.
He’s telling me that all is well,
He soothes me with his feline spell.
True friends like this are truly rare,
For me, this friend is always there.
Soon, together, we drift off to sleep,
Confident in our hearts – this bond we keep.

My Mom and I are trying to play catch up today. We had company this weekend so are running a little behind. We hope you had a great weekend and got a chance to be at Queen Angel Wendy’s “Christmas in July” Royal Ball yesterday. It was fabulous!

A Special Kind of People =^.^=
~~~~~
Cats are a special kind of people,
as we who love them know,
though it's not their fur, or their throbbing purr,
or the whiskers along side their nose.
It's not their tail, though they talk with that,
it's just something, somehow about being a cat.

It's hard to explain, I don't think you can,
just give the love they crave,
no need to understand, how,
be they kitten or cat,
they make our house a home.
What a wonderful gift, from the Lord above,
when he sends a cat to our door.

3. There is nothing undignified in asking for help.=^.^=

Cats are the world’s most dignified creatures, wouldn’t you agree? Yet even they are not above asking for a little help – sometimes loudly – if dinner is late or if the door to their favorite room is closed. We all rely on each other, and not asking for help can actually make you miss opportunities to learn and to form friendships. So work on that meow!

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
We saw our new furiends, the two deer, on our walk this morning. Mom parked us in our stroller and walked down to fill their empty bucket with water. The deer always run when they see us, but this time they stopped to watch Mom from a safe distance. While we were walking, we also saw a little skunk cross the trail in front of us. At first Mom thought it was a small dog with a fluffy tail, but then we saw his cute little black and white face. He didn’t seem scared of us at all, so we waited until he was out of sight!

Plenty of adults feel the need to act “grown up” and to get rid of old toys, and even old hobbies. Clearing clutter can be liberating, but don’t throw out your memories and talents with it! See how your cats treasure their oldest toys? Keep mementos that you’ll be pleased to find later, and never stop singing in the shower.

Hi Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
We hope you, your sweet Mom and Fatty are doing well. We know your Mom was having a problem with her leg and we hope the doctor was able to help her feel better. We had a great time at the Castle Campout with you and Fatty. I know K. Pete adores both of you and we like to see you kitties happy. Take care of yourself and gets lots of rest.

It’s another warm and unusually muggy day here. The temps are in the 90’s but there is a lot of cloud cover. Sadly, no rain is predicted. We saw our deer furiends this morning and filled up the water bucket that Mom set up for them. The water bucket was empty and the deer were nearby it, but there is no telling who drank it. We have our paws crossed it was them.

1. Tomorrow is the perfect time for everything – except what you want now.

Cats are notorious for being a bit lazy. “Cat nap” is a well-known term for a reason – they snooze about 50-70% of the day away. So you might say they take that procrastination saying to heart – tomorrow is the perfect time for everything!

Except, have you ever once seen a cat give up on what they want? Has your kitty ever waited to play with you instead of climbing onto your laptop and demanding your attention?

Cats have mastered the technique of going for what satisfies them most, and letting other worries wait in the wings. So maybe we can’t let our work emails sit for quite as long as your cat would, but you can do what makes you happy in your off-time today, and don’t sweat the rest so much.

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
Not too much going on her today except the noisy racket from the dreaded vacuum monster. We are all hiding in our safe spots, watching Mom carefully while she works around us. Today is supposed to be the hottest day of the week, topping out at 100 degrees.

We did get to see our furiends the deer on our cat stroller walk this morning. They seem to be getting used to us and not running off as quickly. My Mom noticed some water sprinklers going off around some nearby homes. We’re hoping the deer are getting their water from there. No rain in sight here. My Mom left a bucket of water next to the trail by the creek. We’re going to bring a couple of gallons of water each day to fill the bucket. Dad says it won’t help, but Mom doesn’t see how it could hurt. :(

A Cat’s Simple Guide To Happiness (No. 7)
~~~~~
• Be Kind to Your Friends. =^.^=
Cats reward their furry friends with a quick rub or by washing their faces. Cats show their love for humans by rubbing against their ankles, jumping onto their computer keyboards or curling up and purring in their laps. Cats know the importance of having friends. Psychological studies have shown that friendship is surprisingly important to people, too. Social support can lower blood pressure, protect against dementia and reduce risk of depression.

Whiskers opened his eyes early, breathing
deeply to take in the wonderful fresh outdoor air. It was still dark outside, but Whiskers knew his brother K. Pete would be up already, preparing to go to the airfield to make sure every kitty had transportation to the Castle Campout. Talley felt Whiskers stirring, her eyelids still sleepy from a good night’s sleep. She reached out her paw to touch Whiskers. Whiskers put his arms around his sleeping beauty and said, “Sssshh, go back to sleep my love. Your brother and I are going to the airfield to check on the arrivals. We know Angel Sylvia and Angel Lucy-Fur are down there already with several other kitties, but we want to be there if extra help is needed. We’ll be back in time for breakfast. Callie and Angel Maggie are going to try out the powdered eggs.” Whiskers laughed and said, “Maybe I’ll lose some weight eating this freeze dried food.” Talley giggled and kissed her husband. “Oh Whiskers,” she mewed. “My Dad said the packaged food isn’t that bad, especially if your tummy is hungry.” Whiskers smiled and said, “I’m just teasing you honey. This will make me really appreciate how good I have it home.” Talley kissed her husband good-bye and mewed, “Hurry back sweetheart.”

K. Pete was outside with Callie, Angel Maggie and Pearl. The girls had hot coffee brewing on the Coleman stove and toasted bagels with butter. K. Pete waved at Whiskers, pouring him a cup of coffee. He asked, “How did you and Talley sleep last night?” Whiskers took a sip of his coffee and said, “We slept like kittens. The fresh air and the sounds of crickets and hooting owls made for a very restful night. And the air mattresses were great. I was surprised I was able to jump right out of bed and feel so energized.” K. Pete smiled and said, “I feel pretty good too. I hope Neekah Boo and Fatty feel the same way.” Whiskers nodded and said, “They looked tired, but very happy last night when they went to bed. I think spending a couple of days in the outdoors will do wonders for Neekah Boo’s health. We’ll just keep a close eye on her and make sure she doesn’t tire herself out.
Callie overheard her brothers talking and said, “We should have breakfast ready for them by the time they get up. Angel Maggie and I are still trying to read the directions on this packaged food. We’re fixing a Sausage and Egg Scramble skillet with fried Hash Browns this morning. Angel Maggie was busy hydrating the egg powder in a mixing bowl. She laughed and called Callie over. “This actually doesn’t look bad. We’ll need to add some spices, but this is going to be fun!” Callie smiled and high-pawed her sister.

Whiskers and K. Pete hopped into the Suburban and headed down the road to the field. Angels’ Lucy and Sylvia met them with warm hugs and smiles. Angel Sylvie said, “Everything is under control here. We’ve already started to do the maintenance on the Gulfstream SST and the Royal Dreamliner for the return trips home. Angel Q. Cherish and her angel squadron are ready to transport any last minute arrivals. Mitch came with us this morning because he’s a bit nervous and excited about flying in the air show. He’s been shuttling the golf cart to the campground with the few kitties that are still arriving.” K. Pete smiled and said, “Great job girls. I’ll stay here and wait for Mitch to get back from his last run. Whiskers, why don’t you head back to our campsite and tell the family we’ll be there soon and to save some breakfast for us.” Whiskers nodded and said, “Will do.” Whiskers hugged Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy, thanking them for always looking after everything and he took off back to the campground. On the road back, he saw three kitties walking together, carrying very large backpacks. Whiskers pulled the truck over to offer them a lift and was happily surprised to see Bobby, Inky and Storm. Whiskers exclaimed, “Hey you guys! Jump on in. I’m on my way back to my family’s campsite. We’ll be just in time for breakfast.” The three kitties had big smiles on their faces, happy to accept the invitation. Whiskers told his furiends they were all welcome to stay at the campsite with Flower and the family. The boys were overjoyed.
It was still early in the morning with the sun just beginning to rise. Whiskers smiled as he drove up to campsite seeing all his family sitting in the dining tent and some sitting by the unlit campfire, enjoying hot coffee and hot chocolate. Flower ran out to greet his Uncle, when he spied his furiends in the truck. Flower screamed, jumping up and down, running over to greet his buddies. Flower’s screams alarmed Pearl and the girls, who all came running out to see what all the excitement was about. Pearl breathed a sigh of relief when she saw their furiends. Whiskers helped the boys unload their backpacks and he said, “Look who I ran into on my way back!” Flower looked at his Mama with pleading eyes and said, “Can they please stay with us tonight Mama?” Raven smiled at Pearl and said, “Ms. Murphy and I will make accommodations for them if it’s okay with you.” Pearl thanked Raven and told Flower his furiends were very welcome to stay the weekend with them.

Excitement could be heard all around the campground as some kitties were just arriving and many were just waking up to begin their festive weekend. Ms. Murphy said to Whiskers, “Where are Pete, Mitch and the Angels? I just came back from Smudge’s campsite and invited him and his family to breakfast.” Whiskers told his sister Pete, Mitch and the girls would be back soon. There were still a few last minute arrivals the family was helping out with.

Whiskers walked over to where Talley was sitting, chatting and laughing with Neekah Boo & Fatty. Whiskers kissed his wife and gave a warm hug to Neekah Boo and Fatty. Whiskers told them K. Pete would be back soon with Mitch and the Angels and then they could all start to eat. None of the kitties wanted to eat until the entire family was together.

Whiskers went over to his tent to fetch his ukulele. He took Talley’s paw and led her, Neekah Boo and Fatty to sit beneath the towering evergreen trees framing their campsite while they waited for the kitties to return. Talley rested her pretty head on Whisker’s broad shoulder while he sang a morning song for everyone. “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” written by Israel Kamakawiwo'Ole was one of his favorite tunes. Flower, Storm, Bobby, Inky and the kittens heard the music and hurried over to sit and listen. Whiskers motioned for the kids to join in the chorus.

♫ Oohooo oohoooho ooooho
Ooooo oooooo oooooo
Ooooo oooooo oooooo ♫

♬ Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Once in a lullaby ii ii iii
Somewhere over the rainbow
Blue birds fly
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Dreams really do come true ooh ooooh ♬

♬ Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me ee ee eeh
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney tops thats where you'll find me oh
Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
And the dream that you dare to,why, oh why can't I? i iiii ♬

♫ Ooooo oooooo oooooo
Ooooo oooooo oooooo
Ooooo oooooo oooooo ♫

Smudge had arrived during the song, putting his arm around Ms. Murphy as all the kitties joined in the singing. They all clapped paws at the end of the song, just as K. Pete and the kitties drove up. Callie and Angel Maggie came out of the dining room tent, ringing a triangular dinner bell they had bought on a whim at an antique store. It certainly got everyone’s attention as they all laughed and walked together to the dining tent for a joyous morning meal with family and furiends. Whiskers kissed Talley’s paw and politely said, “May I escort you to your seat, beautiful lady?” Talley blushed and mewed, “Yes you may, handsome sir.”

The Castle Campout had begun and they all anticipated a glorious weekend.

Talley and Whiskers located the box containing the
sleeping bags and they added them, the first aid kit and the emergency radio to the stack of gear that was already in their SUV. They were looking for the set of special pots and pans that they had for camping and Whiskers found the cases of freeze dried foods that Pete had given them as storm rations there was a complete case of freeze dried chocolate ice cream. He asked Talley if she thought the kids might like it. Talley smiled and said she thought they might. “They might like to try some of the MRE’s too.” (Meals Ready to Eat)

Whiskers laughed, “Their palates are pretty sophisticated, I don’t know how they’d like roughing it with MREs.”
Talley replied, “It’s something new, it will be an adventure for them. I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t want MREs as a regular diet, but I think they’ll enjoy trying them. Get some of the chicken and dumplings with the warming trays.”
Whiskers located the case he was looking four and took out four meals. He checked the expiration date and said, “These things are good until 2020.”
Talley said, “Our dad said that on his first tour in Viet Nam they had K-rations that were packaged during the Korean War, and that if you were hungry enough, they were pretty good.”
Whiskers packed the MREs into the last box and loaded it into the Audi. “I’ll go ahead and take the gear down to our campsite and then come back and get the food that Callie, Maggie and the girls have packed to take. Pete is bringing dry ice from town to keep the frozen food frozen. I’ll be back in just a short while.”
Talley kissed him and he climbed into the Audi and carefully backed out of the garage, then turned and headed down the mountain.
He used the hands free phone to call Pete. When Pete answered, Whiskers asked, “Where are you?”
Pete replied, “Coming up from the airfield. Where are you?”
“Pulling up to our campsite, to unload and then I’m going back for the food.”
“I’ll meet you there and give you a hand.”
“Neekah Boo and Fatty just arrived at the house as I was leaving”
Pete said, “Then we’ll unload quickly and go right up. They can come back down with us and watch as we set the tents up.”
Whiskers parked and as he got out Pete pulled in behind him. Together they unloaded the gear. The campsites were already filling up. It was going to be one of the biggest Royal Events the Castle had ever seen. Pete was happy to see many of the shelter kitties in the crowd. “Let’s go.” He said to Whiskers.
They drove up the mountain road and parked in the garage. Pete hurried inside and found Neekah Boo and Fatty posing as Flower sketched them in pastels. He had positioned them in the comfortable leather armchairs in front of the stone fireplace. This was a very special portrait. As Pete looked over Flower’s shoulder he could see the glint of amusement and fun in Neekah Boo’s eyes. Flower had captured that single instant in time, that precious slice of life that was there and gone in an instant. Flower said, “Uncle Pete what do you think of this portrait?”

Pete said, “Flower, I think you have a rare talent. You’ve captured the essence of Neekah Boo and Fatty. It’s wonderful!”
Flower beamed at the praise.
Pete said, “It’s time to set up camp. The coolers with the dry ice are in the truck. What needs to stay frozen?”
Callie pointed to the cooler on the counter, and said, “Everything in that one. It has the steaks and the hamburgers. The rest just needs to stay cold, on ice.”
Pete and Whiskers began loading the food. Mitch came in wearing his flight suit and began to help. Soon they were loaded and ready to begin their adventure,
Ms. Murphy and Raven set up the cook tent / dining tent. Whiskers and Talley worked together to put up sleeping tents. Pete and Mitch unloaded the gear and set up the kitchen. Callie, Maggie Orangie and Whitey organized the coolers and dry goods into a proper larder.
Finally Pete plugged the air compressor into the power outlet in the back of his Suburban and inflated air mattresses for everyone.
Maggie said, “We made beef chili for tonight, we just need to get it warmed up and we can eat anytime. For dessert we’re making s’mores and roasting Marshmallows over the campfire.”
Tabitha said, “And then scary stories! We know some we found them on the internet.”
Mitch said, “Well Tabitha, I know it’s nit late and we don’t have a campfire yet, why don’t you tell us one while we set the camp in order.”
Neekah Boo said, “Yes, Tabitha, Please tell us a story!”
Tabitha smiled and began, “This is a true story. A long time ago, A man and a woman got married. As married couples are prone to do, the man and the woman moved in together after the wedding. All was wedded bliss, except for one thing, the woman's beloved cat.
The man hated the cat, and the cat hated the man. In objection to the man's presence in "his" home, the cat took to shredding the man's ties that he would toss over a chair in the bedroom when he got home from work.
But the cat had come before the man (I think we can all relate to this, no?) and the woman was adamant that the elderly cat should live out his remaining years in comfort in their home. So the man, to please his new wife, smiled, nodded, and agreed to try to remember to hang up his ties in the closet, and be kind to the ornery kitty.
The man did not have to submit to the cat for long, for in a few short months, the old cat got sick and died. As he dutifully comforted his heartbroken wife, the man was secretly thrilled. He was once again the man of the house

That night, as he took his tie off from a day at work, he gleefully draped it over the back of the bedroom chair, knowing that this time, it would not be shredded. Climbing into bed and turning off the light, he thought he glimpsed a small shadow dart out the bedroom door, just as his wife's cat used to do. Chuckling to himself for seeing things, he turned over in bed and started to fall asleep. Just as he was drifting off, he could have sworn he heard the pitter patter of little paws running around the bed.
The next morning, the man got out of bed bright and early to get dressed for work. He took a shower, put on his trousers, and shirt, and then turned to the bedroom chair to get his tie. Upon reaching for the tie, the man froze. Like so many times before, the tie was shredded to pieces.”
The family clapped in appreciation, and Tabitha said, “We have lots of ghost stories!”
As the sun began to go behind the mountain, the shadows lengthened and the air began to fill with a myriad of wonderful aromas. The kitties were cooking over wood fires, on portable charcoal grills and even a few gas grills. K Neelix and his brothers had set up their tents not far away and they had plump chickens rotating on a spit above their fire Orangie walked over to chat with Hedley, It was a beautiful evening and strains of music began to drift through the campground. Some kitties played guitar, others the harmonica, but Whiskers had brought his ukulele and he brought it out. He began to serenade Talley with one of the songs he had written for her. Neekah Boo sat with Pete and said, “He is so romantic, isn’t he?”
Pete nodded, “That he is. I think the Lord made Talley and Whiskers to be soul mates.”
They served the chili dinner in compostable paper bowls and afterwards they made s’mores. The kittens shared ghost stories until time to turn in.
When Neekah Boo and Fatty had gone to bed, and the fire had burned down to enmbers, Pete told Whiskers, “I think I should go down to the field in the morning just to make sure everyone who wants to be here has transportation.”
Whiskers said that he would go too.
The brothers said good night and went to their tents.
Whiskers found his beloved Talley brushing her fur and he took her brush and finished brushing her beautiful back. They said their prayers and then climbed onto their air mattress. Night sounds filled the campsite and Talley whispered, “I’m afraid this isn’t as comfortable as our bed back at our house.”
Whiskers whispered back, “Any bed with you in it is perfect!”
Talley smiled in the dark and said, “We’ll see if your back agrees in the morning.”
They kissed and fell asleep.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo & Fatty!
Yippee! I see you kitties have arrived at our home, safe and sound. Isn't it great to be magically transported?! We love Angel Sylvia Seville and Angel Lucy-Fur for always being there when we need them. I know Flower was only too happy to be there to escort you two pretty kitties! We'll have a grand time at the Castle Campout this weekend. Give your dear Mom a big hug for us sweetie. She is always in our prayers.

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

A Cat’s Simple Guide To Happiness (No. 4)

• Take plenty of naps. =^.^=
Cats know that naps are good for you. You might have to go out hunting late at night or get up early to see the sunrise, so it’s a good idea to take a power nap now and then. Human researchers have found that people who take a 20 minute nap have improved creativity, better performance, are more alert and have better cognitive function. Your cat could have told you that!

Angels Lucy Fur, Sylvia Seville and little Flower
knocked at the door. Fatty answered it and said "we're all ready to come to the camp-out, Neekah Boo is just putting the last few items in her duffel bag. Mine is right here."
Flower picked up Fatty's duffel bag and took it too the magic carpet where he placed it safely for the trip. Neekah Boo called down the stairs, "Fatty can you help me with this bag?"
Flower called back up and said, "I'll help!"
He ran up and a moment later came down with the bag over his shoulder and helping Neekah Boo down the steps.
Fatty and Neekah Boo hugged the mom, gave her kitty kisses and promised to call her.
They boarded the Magic Carpet and were at Talley and Whiskers home in an instant.
