About Me

Active within 7 Days

Hi! My name is Shasta

I am a Siamese from Tulsa, OK

Nicknames: Babydoll, Shasta Canasta, Soda Pop, Pearly Girl.

Age: 11 years old

Gender: F

Coat: short haired

Education: I survived being so ill that I could not take care of my 8 babies. I am so glad the nice shelter lady found me. I 'm glad I picked my Mom and Dad. I just love my Mom and Dad and they love me too.

My favorite tricks and treats are: When I was younger I would dive between the matress and the footboard, head first. I sit up like a meerkat. I spike my back hair and fluff my bottle brush tail like a halloween kitty! I was COTD on 11/19/2007!! What an honor! and my favorite treats are salmon, tuna juice, and Greek yogurt, as well as regular kitty treats.

Where I hang out: I love birdie watching on the window perches. I love naps on Mommy's den desk top. From my window seat in the bedroom I can watch the birdie bath! I LOVE my cat tree!! I use my cat tree to get on top of the TV hutch for a nap. I love being on the puter desk when Mommy is on the puter! Daddy's side of the bed.

My favorite grubs: Blue Sensitive Stomach

My pet peeves: Don't tickle my feet! I really don't like getting my nails trimmed.

What I love about my owners: They LOVE me!! Mom and Dad take me outside with them sometimes! I'm Mom's shadow! I just love helping her. They give me good brushings and play with me.

My cat hobbies: I love to go outside with my Mommy and Daddy. I love to sit on my patio chair with Mommy and Daddy. I love to play with my mousys and my Peacock feathers. I primp my feathers every time I finish playing with them. I guard my Mommy while she is using that noisy floor thingy. I just love to arch my back, fluff my tail, and hop sideways at Mommy or Daddy! I love leading you down the hallway!

Pet motto: Is it time to go out yet? Is it time for treats! Where's my mouse?

My Birthday is 9/28!!!

How We Met

Mom and Daddy came looking for me after they lost the second of three kitties. Chayse had just lost his buddy, Shoshone. He told me they were inseparable. They ate together, slept together and played together. Where one was the other was close behind. Chayse told me Shoshone was a Red point Siamese that talked up a storm! Chayse had never been by himself before! Mom and Daddy came to the feline rescue looking for a Siamese friend for him. When I saw Mom and Daddy, I just sat with both of them for the longest time. They were so loving, gentle and kind. I was found in a closet with my 8 babies in the heat in May of 2005. I was so ill and thin, I couldn’t take care of my kittens. Only four of my kittens survived. The nice people at the feline rescue bottle fed my babies and took great care of them. So I decided that this was MY Mom and Daddy! Chayse was okay with me but he really missed his buddy, Shoshone and he died soon after. Mom and Daddy still miss all three of their babies, Weedie, Shoshone, and Chayse. I’m so glad I am here and made it a little easier for them. Mom and Daddy say I’m a nut!!

WINSTONS WISDOM!
"PAWS" TO CONSIDER: Cat's, unlike dogs, use their paws for much more than walking around. They employ them to groom, probe their enviroment, subdue prey, express affection and--with their rapier-sharp claws extended--as a formidable weapon.

Along with other types of body language, they form part of the jigsaw puzzle that is your cats mysterious mind.

STROKING, CLAWS SHEATHED: This is one of your cats most intimate and loving gestures. When she gently puts her paw on your arm, she's telling you she thinks of you as her pal. It goes back to her days as a kitten, when she would stroke her mother and siblings--and be stroked in turn--in warm moments of blissful family happiness.

Tomorrow: GRABBING!

**~~~Please stop by and congratulate todays COTD, Otis Fuzzybutt, thank you.~~~**

***Looki- ng for fun and good times on CC? Why not join the Mouse Hockey League. Over 100 cats can't be wrong. If interested in joining please see Commissioner Caser{60584} or if you would like to join the DesPURRadoes, which is Buddy's new team, please see Buddy{69967} and sign up. Thanks!!***

Boy, how time flies! It's almost over, my catpaign that is. It's been so much fun, and it's great that you appreciate the work that has gone into my catpaign. Momma has worked pretty hard making it where you would get something in return for your votes! Thanks so much for everything and voting everyday. You are such wonderful friends, and I will never forget this effort each of you have put forward to help me get my COTM. Our new Guide Dog, Cliffy, has to go back to the Foundation. He is a great Guide Dog, but he just doesn't get along with little dogs or kitties...except me! He seems to like me, but then I don't run from dogs like the other guys do. I guess I'm no fun for him to chase. Yesterday he tried to attack our baby Chihuahua, Keely. Keely only weighs 2 lbs. She is adorable and oh so sweet. Cliffy was serious about having her for lunch, so Daddy said that's it...he is going back. We are really sad, but we can't go on like this. It's not fair to Cliffy and certainly not fair to the other guys that live here either. Momma has an appointment with the surgeon today about her carpal tunnel surgery. They are booked through June so it will be in July sometime. We may not be able to blog alot today, so I hope you all understand. Here is the EASY and delicious recipe for today...also for DOGS!

SAUTEED LIVER

Heat 1 teaspoon corn oil in a pan.

Add 1/4 pound beef liver and fry on both sides until cooked but not dry inside.

Add 1/2 cup water to the pan and mix it up with all the brown bits.

For dogs, cut the liver into pieces and serve; for cats, grind the liver in a blender, using the pan juices.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Please remember our sick kitty families in your prayers and snuggle them gently in your hearts. Happy Special Days to those celebrating today. I give thanks for such wonderful friends and such a great place as the Cat Channel.

Love and Blessings,

No one was hurt in the tornado!
Yesterday at 5AM we had an EF0 tornado!! It started out as an EF2 in Sapulpa and ended as an EF0 on my street! Thank God no one was hurt. It ripped off the post on my front porch and broke a limb on the Redbud in my back yard. It sounded like a freight train and my house screeched and groaned like I have never heard before! I called my insurance company and having the roof checked to make sure it wasn’t damaged. There was only a piece of a shingle broken on my roof. There is a little insulation stuck to the underside of the roof. I NEVER want to go through a tornado again!

Come visit me, Shasta.

4/15 Shadow presents "Le Chat Noir" The Black Cat
A sunny day with temperatures in the 60s with a slight breeze.

Today is poetry day. This poem entitled “Five Eyes” is by Walter De La Mare

“In Hans’ old mill his three black cats
Watch his bins for thieving rats.
Whisker and claw, they crouch in the night,
Their five eyes smouldering green and bright:
Squeaks from the flour sacks, squeaks from where
The cold wind stirs on the empty stair,
Squeaking and scampering, everywhere.
Then down they pounce, now in, now out,
At whisking tail, and sniffing snout;
While lean old Hans he snores away
Till peep of light at break of day;
Then up he climbs to his creaking mill,
Out come his cats all grey with meal-Jekkel, and
Jessup, and one-eyed Jill.”

4/13 Shadow presents“Le Chat Noir” The Black Cat
Another sunny chilly day,into the 50s.

Today, a poem by Mary Oliver entitled “Morning”

“Salt shining behind its glass cylinder.
Milk in a blue bowl. The yellow linoleum.
The cat stretching her black body from the pillow.
The way she makes her curvaceous response to the small, kind gesture.
Then laps the bowl clean
Then wants to go out into the world where she leaps lightly and for no apparent reason across the lawn,
then sits, perfectly still, in the grass.
I watch her a little while, thinking:
What more could I do with wild words?
I stand in the cold kitchen bowing down to her.
I stand in the cold kitchen, everything wonderful around me.”

Sunday-a beautiful day, sunny in the 70s, a bit windy.
We are getting a late start today.

I am humbly honored to be COTD again today, one year from my first COTD honor. Thank you every kitty who voted for me.

Thank you to all who visited Terry and me on our birthday yesterday, and for all the sweet, treats and gifts! CC is such a wonderful place with many wonderful furriends.

Today another breed with black color recognized by the CFA is highlighted.

The British Black is a shorthair self color breed.
It is said that the invading Romans introduced this cat to Britain. It is usually thought to be a “native” British cat. This group has many other colors, but the Black is a popular variety.

The British Black has a sweet-natured, gentle and generally undemanding temperament. The body is broad chested, stocky and solidly built. The ears are small, neat and wide set. Its coat is glossy, short and dense. The color should be all black to the root, with no rusty tinge. The eyes are large, round and wide set, with the color being either deep orange or copper.

The breed requires regular grooming. It is a quiet cat that requires moderate exercise. It is recognized in all countries.

Black cats have always been thought to bring good luck or bad luck. Here are some superstitions from around the world. These are from “For the Love of Cats”:

1) People in Britain and Japan believe a black cat crossing their path is a harbinger of good fortune.
2) Scottish folks think a black kitten on the porch indicates happiness is to come.
3) Latvian Farmers think finding a black cat in the silo means that Rungis, the god of harvests has smiled upon them.
4) Germans have to pay attention to which way the cat is crossing. A black cat crossing from left to right is a cause for celebration. However, if the black cat is crossing from right to left look out, bad luck may befall you.
5) If you cross at black cat’s path, bad luck of the worst sort will follow you.
6) Petting a black cat is a good thing. Stroking a black cat is said to bring you health and prosperity.
7) The Chinese believe black cats foretell times of famine and poverty.
8) If a black cat curls up on the bed of a sick person, according to Italians, death will soon follow.
9) Don’t be anxious to rid your house of black felines. Chasing away a black cat is thought to seal the deal on bringing bad luck your way.

4/9 Shadow presents“Le Chat Noir” The Black Cat
This is a short story from the history of black cats.
Cat 15 minutes of fame. Headline: “Give this cat some credit, but not that much credit”

In October 1992, a cat owner sent in a rebate application for cat food. Her six-year old black cat, Theo, ended up on many mailing lists. He’s received as much mail as his owner, including video club offers, credit card applications, and magazine subscriptions.
He’d even become a finalist in Ed McMahon’s $10 million sweepstakes.

Newspapers all over the country reported on this story about a cat getting junk mail. His owner thinks that the people sending him the mail probably think he’s a rich Greek tycoon because of his name: Theo Theoklitos.

4/8 Shadow presents“Le Chat Noir” the Black Cat
A beautiful day again today,but lower temps in the 60s.

The poem “The Cat and the Moon” was written by the famous poet William Butler Yeats. It is a lovely poem about a black cat named Minnaloushe

The cat went here and there
And the moon spun round like a top,
And the nearest kin of the moon,
The creeping cat, looked up.
Black Minnaloushe stared at the moon,
For, wander and wail as he would,
The pure cold light in the sky
Troubled his animal blood.
Minnaloushe runs in the grass
Lifting his delicate feet.
Do you dance, Minnaloushe, do you dance?
When two close kindred meet,
What better than call a dance?
Maybe the moon may learn,
Tired of that courtly fashion,
A new dance turn.
Minnaloushe creeps through the grass
From moonlit place to place,
The sacred moon overhead
Has taken a new phase.
Does Minnaloushe know that his pupils
Will pass from change to change,
And that from round to crescent,
From crescent to round they range?
Minnaloushe creeps through the grass
Alone, important and wise,
And lifts to the changing moon
His changing eyes.

Today is No House Work Day-Hey Mom & Dad-leave Mr.Vacuum in the closet!!

“There is no more intrepid explorer than a kitten” Jules Champfleury

A story from history:
Trim was the first cat to sail around the world and circumnavigate Australia. Trim was a glossy black cat with four white paws and a white star on his chest. He was born at sea on a ship the “Roundabout” in 1799. He was the beloved cat of Matthew Flinders (1774-1814) the explorer and first person to circumnavigate Australia.

Being raised at sea Trim had no fear of water. He was a great swimmer. If he fell off a slippery deck, the crew would throw him a rope so he could climb back up into the ship.

In 1803, Flinders and Trim were sailing back to England aboard the ship Cumberland. The ship was wrecked on a coral reef in the Indian Ocean. Flinders and Trim were rescued, but imprisoned on the French island of Mauritius. Matthew Flinders was held as a spy. Trim disappeared after two weeks of captivity and was presumed dead. Matthew Flinders was nearly inconsolable at the loss of his beloved cat. In later years, Flinders wrote, “I can never speak of cats without a sentiment of regret for my poor Trim, the favourite of all our ship’s company.”

In 1995, in Sydney Australia, a statue of Matthew Flinders was erected, with Trim looking up at his master.

The last day of Passover

A Poem from “The Great Cat” titled “Black Cat”, by Rainer Maria Rilke will be the first of many scattered throughout the month.

“A ghost, though invisible, still is like a place your sight can knock on, echoing; but here within this thick black pelt, your strongest gaze will be absorbed and utterly disappear.

just as a raving madman, when nothing else can ease him, charges into his dark night
howling, pounds on the padded wall, and feels the rage being taken in and pacified.

She seems to hide all looks that have ever fallen into her, so that, like an audience, she can look them over, menacing and sullen, and can curl to sleep with them. But all at once

as if awakened, she turns her face to yours; and with a shock, you see yourself, tiny, inside the golden amber of her eyeballs suspended, like a prehistoric fly.”

Thank you to all my furriends who left Easter goodies. Terry & I thought they were very delicious!

Another sunny day, temperatures promise to be in the mid-70s.

Fictional Black Cats can be found in Myth and Literature ,(from Wikipedia).The following are a couple of myths, and a list of black cats in literature.

The Cat Sìth or Cat Sídhe is a fairy creature from Scottish mythology, said to resemble a large black cat with a white spot on its breast. Legend has it that the spectral cat haunts the Scottish Highlands. Some common folklore suggested that the Cat Sìth was not a fairy, but a transformed witch. The myths surrounding this creature are more common in Scottish Folklore, but a few myths occur in Irish folklore as well.
A similar creature appears in Edgar Allan Poe's short story, "The Black Cat," in which an ominous feline appears with a white patch on its breast whose shape appears to change into that of the gallows as a means of exacting vengeance on its master for its predecessor's death.

Literature:
Behemoth (Begemot, Russian:?), the huge, trolley-riding, Satanic black cat in Mikhail Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita; the name belongs to the biblical Behemoth "The Black Cat" named Pluto in Edgar Allan Poe's short story, a study of the psychology of guilt and death.
Blackjack, a black Manx, from Matt Ruff's Fool on the Hill;
Faithful, a purple-eyed, black cat who is actually a constellation that takes corporeal form to aid mortals in Tamora Pierce's The Song of the Lioness and Beka Cooper quartets.
Graybar, the black, mouse-hating stray cat in the book Ragweed by Avi and Brian Floca, part of the Poppy Books series.
Grimbold, a black "prince of cats" who shows a young goatherd the way to the Night World and leads him into many strange adventures in "Grimbold's Other World", by Nicholas Stuart Gray.
Marlinspike, Thomas Cromwell's large black tomcat in "Wolf Hall", by Hilary Mantel.Slinky Malinki, a mischievous black cat featured in a series of books by Lynley Dodd.
Svartalf, a big black witch's familiar in Operation Chaos by Poul Anderson.
Tobias, a tall black talking cat with significant magical powers in the Tim and the Hidden People series by Sheila McCullough.
Winkie, black cat Alexander Key's novel "Escape to Witch Mountain"; Tia's pet (also the Disney film of the same name).

Shadow presents“Le Chat Noir” The Black Cat
Easter Sunday- Happy Easter!!! Did you find those little mice that were dyed in festive colors?

It’s been a beautiful day today with temperatures in the high seventies, with sunny blue skies.

Today the breed Persian Longhair Self-Color will be highlighted.

This breed comes in several colors. One is black. This breed has been known since the 16th century, but became popular in the 19th century after being imported from Persia to Europe. Back then, their faces were longer, ears larger and had a rangier shape. Selective breeding has developed the stocky body and open face we see today.

This cat is quiet, gentle and affectionate. The Black Persian fits well into most domestic situations. It enjoys human company, but does well while left alone during the work day. It has a low activity level and a quiet voice.

The Black Persian is medium sized, muscled and stocky with small wide set ears and a short open face. The tail is short and bushy and plumed. Legs are short, thick and strong. Paws are rounded and toes are tufted. The coat is long and luxurious with a softer undercoat. The adult should have a dense solid black coat and require daily grooming.

Author Raymond Chandler had a black Persian named Taki. Chandler read the first drafts of his murder stories to Taki.

Hi Shasta
Shadow presents“Le Chat Noir” The Black Cat
Black Cat Trivia from “For the Love of Cats”. Trivia will be a Caturday event.
Another beautiful, warm, sunny day in MA. Rivers slowly going back down, roads slowly re-opening to traffic.

In the 1920’s Black Cat was the name of an enamel stove polish. It was manufactured by J.L. Prescott Co., New York.
There was once a brand of cigarettes called “Black Cat”

Everyone is familiar with French graphic artist Theophile-Alexandre Steinlen’s drawing of du Chat Noir. His cat illustration is just as popular today as it was in the 1890s.

Betty White, the actress, has been a pet lover all her life. After her husband died, a stunning black cat started hanging out in her backyard. If Ms.White looked at the cat it disappeared. The cat was fascinated by Ms. White’s little black poodle Timmy. After a time, the cat started to eat food Betty gave it. One day, the cat followed Timmy inside the house. Timmy eventually won the cat’s trust and they became friends. Betty adopted the cat and named him T.K. for Timmy’s Kitty.

Comedian Groucho Marx once said “A black cat crossing your path signifies that the animal is going somewhere.”

4/1 Shadow presents“Le Chat Noir” the Black Cat
April Fools Day! This is no joke though!!!!

I am extremely honored to have been chosen to catpaign for May Cat of the Month and hope to follow in the paw steps of those who have come before me. Being the first all Black Cat to run for this esteemed position, I am going to devote this month to highlighting the black cat in literature, art, history, and trivia There are also certain breeds of cat who are all black and they will be highlighted.

Some of the books that provided information about black cats are: Cats Out of the Bag/Beck/Premium Press; The Great Cat-Poems/Fragos/Everyman- ’s Library Pocket Poets/Alfred A.Knopf; For the Love of Cats Purrfect Felines/Harris/Publicatio- ns International, Ltd; The Little Big Book of Cats/Wong/Welcome Books; Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader Cat Lover’s Companion, and CAT-the Complete Guide/Claire Bessant/Barnes & Noble.

Today, some trivia from “Cats Out of the Bag”. Pluto is The Black Cat in Edgar Allen Poe’s eerie short story about a cat’s vengeance upon an evil drunkard.

The superstition about having bad luck if a black cat crosses your path grew from the belief that the cat was on its way to visit the devil.

In olde England it was believed that a sty in the eye would be cured if rubbed with a black cat’s tail.

Hi Shasta
What’s purring with you today? I am snoozing in Nana’s lap in her recliner. We are watching our soap “Days of our Lives”. Merrybelle is resting on the dining room table & Miss Priss Sissy is upstairs in her hammock. It is a very chilly day outside so we are going to help Nana make 15-bean soup & cornbread for dinner. Hope your day is comfy-cozy too.

Glad your Mom is feeling better. Please tell her to visit www.MedIDs.com where she can print out a little card with her medical info on it to carry in her purse. Next week is Mommy & Nana's rheuma & gastro appointments. They are not looking forward to that!

Purrs,
Casper Todd
