On the days you're feeling blue.
If I could build a mountain
You could call your very own
A place to find serenity
A place to be alone
If I could take your troubles
I would toss them in the sea
But all these things I'm finding
are impossible for me.
I cannot build a mountain
Or catch a rainbow fair
But let me be what I know best
A furiend who's always there.”

Hi SJPC Sr.
Sorry for the c/p but we have been among the "M.I.A" recently. As usual we have people who have a few screws loose making waves in the kiddie pool. Once the smoke clears from that fire another dose of "dopey" pops up. Now the hunt is on for a part-time employee & been causing schedule issues here at home. Mom's been sort of exhausted with the latest events. We didn't mean to disappear for a few days but it's always something. Thank goodness our goofy ways can bring smiles to mom & Rosie (mom's nurse) after this last installment of "The Immature & the Senseless"... our soap opera that keeps on giving MOL.
With our happy votes, sweetest purrs & kitty purrs, Armani & Chloe xoxo

♥Good Night Dear Sylvester!♥
It´s very nice to meet you!
Mom and I hope from the bottom of our hearts this kitty letter finds you all doing very well. I´m so sorry for being gone for such a long time. Mommy has not much free time to be on her PC during these days, mostly because of her work and my sister Lola is the one who writes her CC blogs most of the times.

We´re having winter in Argentina and it has been raining during the entire week. We´ve been staying inside the house, playing and napping close to the heaters in the warmest places of our home. We miss going to our back yard but Mom says we can´t do that until Mr. Sun comes back. MOL! Our green parrots are gone because of the rains. Mom tell us they must be inside their nests keeping them dry and we hope to see them again soon as it´s always fun to stare at them.

Our parents have been taking care of our stray kitty friend, Misho, who had a very bad wound on his leg and paw. Mom was really worried about him but she´s glad to see he has been improving slowly and his wound looks a lot better now. He is still having antibiotics.

We wish you all a super purrfect weekend and we send you a huge bunch of whisker kisses and hugs...
With much love,
from your friends always,
Simba & all the Buenos Aires Kitties!!

Wander With Whiskers – June 18-Big Sur to Carmel
Big Sur Coast Highway to Carmel
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
The Royal Feline Castle Train will be our guide through the Big Sur Coast Highway. We want to enjoy the spectacular scenery during the day, so after dinner on the train, we can all relax onboard for the night. Sip a cocktail in the lounge car, read in the library, gain a tree-top perspective of the landscape from the dome car or join furiends around the piano. Or simply relax in your cabin in the comfort of our sleeping cars until morning, when the breakfast bell chimes, signaling our journey is about to commence.

The stunning views of the Pacific Ocean right outside our windows make the perfect companion to our breakfast meal. Tables are set with crisp starched linens and fine china and glassware reminiscent of the glory days of rail travel.

Timing is perfect to enjoy a spectacular view of the California coastline as our train travels to our next destination of Carmel. We will be traveling the route that hugs the California coast, providing access to austere, windswept cypress trees, fog-shrouded cliffs and the crashing surf of the Pacific Ocean. Views include rugged canyons, towering redwoods, sea lions, and other marine life.

Big Sur's beaches are subject to generally cool weather. Sunny days are sporadic as a blanket of seasonal fog often hugs the coastline, dropping the temperature in the process. Private property and Big Sur's steep terrain make most of its coastline inaccessible to the public. However, several State Park and U.S. Forest Service beaches are open to the public all year. These beaches are recommended due to easy access and spine-tingling scenery.

The actual town of Big Sur has been a fertile area for artistic advancements. A variety of authors have immortalized the region with the written word. In the late 19th century, Robert Louis Stevenson lived briefly in the area, followed by John Steinbeck, Henry Miller, and Jack Kerouac, among others. Unlike many areas honored in literature, Big Sur remains relatively unchanged over the years.

John Steinbeck wrote, "Here at Big Sur, at a certain time of the year and a certain time of the day only, a pale blue-green hue pervades the distant hills; it is an old, nostalgic hue, it is a mystical phenomenon, or so I like to think, born of a certain way of looking at the world."

John Steinbeck's legacy is now synonymous with the Big Sur area. Known as Steinbeck Country, the cities of Monterey, Carmel and Salinas on the northern end of the byway brim with memories of John Steinbeck's legacy.

Our journey for now is almost over as we arrive to the city of Carmel.

Please Vote Serj & Leah #196985 COTD Mon 6/17
Our Special Recognition cats today are Serj & Leah #196985 who were both adopted from Lolly Pop
Farm Animal Shelter at the tender age of eight weeks old. Both quickly acclimated to their new
forever home by making fast friends with their new furry siblings with Serj #196985 getting close to
his sister Katie, who sadly is now an angel, and Leah being wherever her brother Gir is. Like all of us
cats, both of these fine felines have their own personalities and likes & dislikes. Serj is pretty
outspoken but Leah #196985 is shy. Serj's morning routine is waiting for his mom every morning in
the bathroom and after her shower, insists on head scratches and kisses and lovey dovey time. Leah
#196985 is a bit feral but she has relaxed enough that she will allow her mom to pet her on occasion
without running away. Leah lets her mom know when their food bowls are empty by standing on the
counter and meowing an alert to have the bowls filled. Leah only likes dry food and especially likes it
when it is poured fresh into her bowl. Serj #196985 will jump over the dog gate to get inside his
mom's bedroom so he can cuddle with her even when he whacks at the ferrets during the night. Leah
prefers the company of Gir and hides very well when she knows it is time for a vet visit. Please
pounce over on Monday, June 17th, and leave a vote for Serj & Leah #196985 so they can proudly have
a shiny new COTD badge to display on their page.

While out and about the CC, please visit our June candidate for COTM, Dolly #222609 and leave a vote
for her collection so she can become our COTM for July. Dolly's stories are fascinating and exciting
and we are sure you will enjoy reading her postings.
Also please visit and leave a vote for our June King, King Whiskers #227256 while we journey with
him along the coast of beautiful California.
CC kitties and families, thank you for supporting our Special Recognition cats and our feline
community. As a token of our appreciation we are leaving a big tub of fresh catnip flavored popcorn
(not only is it good to eat, it is fun to play with) and grilled fish with tuna BBQ sauce on the side for
your enjoyment.

This is Sienna and family along with Linguini and family wishing you all a good week.

Wander With Whiskers – June 14 –San Luis Obispo
Another Day In San Luis Obispo
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
After a great breakfast at the Madonna Inn, the female kitties all wanted to take a peek at the famous (top ten in the world) tom’s restroom. The girls had heard a trip to San Luis Obispo wouldn’t be complete without visiting the tom’s room at the Madonna Inn! In it, the urinals look like caves with waterfalls, which is activated when you break a beam of light. Yep, that's it!

Walk to Morro Bay -
There’s no better way to spend the day than out on the incredible estuary in beautiful Morro Bay. Strolling the bayfront, fishing, kayaking or simply sitting on the dock…it’s all here waiting for us. Morro Bay, along California’s Central Coast, is among the most visually spectacular communities in America. This is where we will start. It has a rich early history that stretches back to the adventures of the Chumash & Salinian Native Americans & visits by Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo & the Manila Galleons of the 16th Century. Here we can see the famous “Morro Rock.” Morro Rock is also sometimes called the “Gibraltar of the Pacific.” It is the last of a line of long-extinct volcanoes formed about 23 million years ago, which include nine peaks ranging from San Luis Obispo to Morro Bay. Morro Rock is a State Historic Landmark, a bird sanctuary & home to nesting Peregrine Falcons. It is therefore closed to any climbing or disturbance.

Now let’s go on a driving tour. Our motor coaches will pick us up at Morro Bay. The uncrowded roads & stunning views in & around San Luis Obispo make for incredible scenic drives. We’ll get a mixture of vineyards, curving mountain roads, and coastal views driving up US 101 & loop back to San Luis Obispo via Highway 1 through cattle pastures & farmland. We’ll travel the scenic back roads into downtown Arroyo Grande. Stroll the historic Village, discover turn-of-the-century Victorians surrounding Santa Manuela Schoolhouse, and cross the suspended swinging bridge — the only one of its kind in California.

Let’s end our day with a visit to some wineries. Wine tasting should be a perfect blend of a great experience & great wine, and that’s just what we’ll get as we enjoy the hand-crafted bottlings of San Luis Obispo’s wine region. The moderate climate of the verdant, sunlit Edna Valley just outside town allows for an extended growing season, which give local wines lush, distinct flavors sure to please any palate. My particular favorite winery is called Talley Vineyard Wines! Enjoy sweeping views of the Rincon Vineyard & the fields of Talley Farms from the tasting room. The vineyard is just minutes away from Lopez Lake, a great place for an evening picnic. An ideal setting for tasting great Pinot Noir & Chardonnay.

Time to head back to The Inn.
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^

Wander With Whiskers – June 12–Queen Mary
Aboard the Queen Mary -
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Before we leave, we must tour this fabulous floating hotel. Let’s all grab some pastry from the Starboard Bakery and enjoy our coffee while strolling the Promenade Deck before we begin.

On May 27, 1936, the Queen Mary departed from Southampton, England embarking on her maiden voyage. The Queen Mary had set a new benchmark in transatlantic travel, which the rich and famous considered as the only civilized way to travel. She quickly seized the hearts and imaginations of the public on both sides of the Atlantic, representing the spirit of an era known for its elegance, class and style. The increasing popularity of air travel helped signal the end of an era for the Queen Mary. By 1965 the entire Cunard fleet was operating at a loss and they decided to retire and sell the legendary Queen Mary.

Let’s go on the “Her Finest Hour: A WWII Tour,” for an in-depth look at the role the Queen Mary played in helping the Allied Forces win the Great War. Nicknamed the “Grey Ghost” after receiving a hauntingly stark paint job, the ship’s impressive speed and size made it an ideal troop hauler often carrying as many as 15,000 men in a single voyage.

With such a varied and intriguing past it’s not surprising that the Queen Mary has been voted one of the Top 10 Most Haunted Places in America. In fact, some say the Queen Mary is one of the most haunted places in the world with as many as 150 known spirits lurking upon the ship. Over the past 60 years, the Queen Mary has been the site of at least 49 reported deaths, not to mention having gone through the terrors of war, so it comes as no surprise that spectral spirits of her vivid past continue to walk within her rooms and hallways. Among the ghosts reportedly still hanging around are a sailor who died in the ship's engine room, a "lady in white," and children who drowned in the ship's pool. Other phenomenon occurring throughout the ship, are the sounds of distinct knocks, doors slamming and high pitched squeals, drastic temperature changes, and the aromas of smells long past. These are but a few of the many reports of apparitions and strange events occurring at this luxury liner turned hotel. There’s no doubt the Queen Mary is full of mystery and lore.

Let’s unwind our adventure-filled day with dinner at the Chelsea Chowder House & Bar. There’s nothing better than a juicy steak or fresh fish after a day at sea (or at port). We can watch the sunset and revisit the memories of our exciting stay aboard the legendary Queen Mary.

Wander With Whiskers – June 11 – Los Angeles
Welcome to Hollywood!
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Let’s all climb aboard our Feline Motor Coaches & head for Hollywood. Our first stop will be to see the famous Hollywood Sign. You can see the Hollywood Sign from many places around Los Angeles, but a quick drive up Mulholland Drive or above the Hollywood Reservoir will reward us with a glimpse of living in the Hollywood Hills & some great city views, too.

Next stop, the Hollywood Walk of Fame. We start the day by spending the morning on Hollywood Boulevard, following the path of bronze-and-marble stars along the Walk of Fame. Since 1960 more than 2,400 celebrities have been honored along the world's most famous sidewalk, but you'll need an old-timer to explain who a lot of the now-long-dead entertainers were.

Along the Hollywood Walk of Fame we’ll see Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. It's sort of a tourist rite of passage to compare your hands and feet with the famous prints set in cement at the entrance court to Grauman's Chinese Theatre, a tradition started when silent-film star Norma Talmadge "accidentally" stepped in wet cement during the premiere of Cecil B. DeMille's King of Kings. Go ahead -- compare your paws to footprints left by Humphrey Bogart or Marilyn Monroe.

We’ll take a lunch break & walk down the street to Musso & Frank Grill, Hollywood's oldest restaurant (since 1919). Part restaurant, part museum, this is where Faulkner, Hemingway, and Orson Welles derived liquid inspiration during their screenwriting days. After lunch, we can all waddle back to our motor coach, put in a ‘Best of the Beach Boys’ CD and slowly cruise the legendary Sunset Boulevard and The Sunset Strip.

This 1-hour drive takes us from sorta-seedy Hollywood to flamboyant West Hollywood, past the moneyed minimansions of Beverly Hills, winding our way into the secluded enclave of Pacific Palisades toward Malibu, and finally the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH).

We soon arrive at the Santa Monica Pier. Built in 1908 for passenger & cargo ships, the pier does a pretty good job of recapturing the glory days of Southern California. Buy an ice-cream cone at one of the snack shacks & stroll seaward past the wooden carousel, roller coaster, and arcades, then buy a ticket to ride the Ferris wheel.

From the pier, we’ll walk to the carnival-like stretch known as Venice Beach. For first-timers, this pseudo-bohemian scene is a bit of a shock to the senses: a surreal assemblage of street performers, musicians, musclemen pumping serious iron, apocalyptic evangelists, break dancers, stoned drummers, outlandish clothing—or lack of, and endless schlock shops. We haven’t seen it all until we’ve seen Venice! MOL!

Our paws should be tired by now. We’ll board our motor coaches & head back to our hotel for a leisurely dinner.

Wander With Whiskers – June 10–Long Beach
Welcome to the Queen Mary -
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Relax on board the Castle Train after your sleeping rooms are assigned. Watch the scenery go by & listen to the rhythm of the rails. Keep a bag packed, because we won’t be sleeping here overnight yet.

We arrive to Long Beach CA in about 3 hours where we will be checking into the Queen Marry, our hotel destination for 3 days.

Once a world-class ocean liner, the Queen Mary Hotel offers guests unique accommodations & a wide array of attractions that simply cannot be found anywhere else. Each stateroom is unique with its own personality & offers a real glimpse into what transatlantic travel was like during the 30’s, 40’s & 50’s. On Oct. 31, 1967, the Queen Mary departed on her final cruise, arriving in Long Beach, California, on Dec. 9, 1967. She has called Southern California her home ever since. The Queen Mary is now a floating Hotel, Attraction & Event & Wedding Venue, home to three world-class restaurants & an icon in Southern California. With an impressive history & tradition of excellence, the Queen Mary Hotel is more than a place to rest one’s head – it’s an entire experience. There’s a wide variety of things to do on the ship, but we’ll save that for our last day.

Let’s Visit Catalina Island -
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
California's only coastal island retreat is a short trip away from Los Angeles & part of the same county, but it's surprisingly different from its mainland counterpart. Most of its land is preserved as a nature conservancy, surrounding the small town of Avalon where about 3,000 people live. Avalon is a small, walkable town centered on the small boat harbor & waterfront, with enough hotels, restaurants & activities to keep visitors happy.

The most common way to get to Catalina Island from the mainland is to take a ferry, but we’ll take the glass bottom boat. These large, comfortable vessels bring the undersea world right to you. During our trip we’ll visit the Lover’s Cove Marine Preserve, where colorful fish & marine plants thrive among the kelp forests.

Upon arrival, we’ll walk along the waterfront from Casino Point to Lover's Point. Along the way, we'll see orange garibaldi fish swimming in the kelp beds & boats in the harbor, pass through the center of town & out again, to where the beaches are less busy & the views unobstructed.

Catalina residents drive golf carts because it's difficult to get permission to bring an automobile onto the island, but most visitors do it just for fun. We'll find rental places along the waterfront. While we've got wheels, let’s head up the hill to take in the vista from just below the Inn on Mt. Ada, run out to the Botanical Garden, then go across town toward the Zane Grey Hotel for a different point of view.

Time to head back to our hotel!

***Please Vote Jake 205858 Mon June 10***
Handsome Jake and his fursister Katie were found outside a local Pet Smart by his future mom. One look into his eyes, and she knew the only thing she could do was bring them both home. Now, Jake is her personal protecter making sure to thoroughly check out anyone who comes into his home before he lets them near her. He also loves hanging out in the window and chatting with the birds as well as wrestling with his daddy. What he does not like is having his sleep interrupted and his nails trimmed. Can't say that I blame him there, BOL. Please paw on by his page 205858 and leave him a vote for his very own COTD badge.
And please don't forget our current COTM candidate, the lovely Miss Dolly 222609. I know she would appreciate hearing from you as well as collecting your vote. Thanking you with purrs of catitude. Love, Queen Angel Callie & Sibs for the Catpaign & Mews room.

Wander With Whiskers – June 7 –San Diego
LA JOLLA & TIJUANA
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
La Jolla, CA
================= =^.^=
In Spanish, La Jolla means "the jewel," an apt name for a beautiful town ringed with blue waters. It's one of California's prettiest oceanside towns, and home to several of the state's best beaches.

La Jolla is popular with shoppers, romantics & outdoor adventurers who can surf, kayak, scuba dive & bicycle here. It's also a great foodie destination with some of San Diego's best-rated restaurants & a good place to go just to relax.

Beaches: When people say San Diego has great beaches, they really mean La Jolla has great beaches. La Jolla Cove, La Jolla Shores & Windandsea are not only the best in San Diego but perhaps the best in the state & La Jolla Shores may be California's most beautiful beach, with a wide, gently-sloping beach & panoramic views. A morning or sunset walk here is enough to relax the most stressed-out among us, and it's even better when the tide is going out, coating the sand with a mirror-like water layer.

We’ll go for a window-shopping stroll along Prospect Avenue & the side streets that run into it. With few chain stores in sight, we might just find something we can't leave without. To enjoy La Jolla at its scenic best, we’ll check the low tide times before we go, when the tide pools are revealed.

We only have a day, so let’s get back on the Feline Motor Coaches & head for Mexico!
…………………………………………………………………………
Tijuana, Mexico
================= =^.^=
It's only a short drive from San Diego, but we'll feel that we've entered another world when we leave the United States behind & enter Tijuana, Mexico. This tour is a must for bargain shoppers & lovers of Mexican cuisine. All visitors to Mexico will be required to present a passport upon re-entry into the United States.
REMEMBER – Let’s all stay together while we are here!

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS:
Tijuana Cultural Center: The center is a multimillion-dollar showcase displaying exhibits about Mexico's people, events & culture, and is well worth a visit for the Mexican cuisine alone.

Shopping: The Tijuana terminal located on Avenida Revolucion makes it convenient to shop the many Bazaars & Boutiques. This is where we wheel & deal for shopping bargains. There are also ample opportunities to get your souvenir photograph taken with a Tijuana zebra (a donkey with black stripes) and cart. Good luck & be careful!

I hope you are all looking forward to riding the Royal Feline Castle Train next week, as we begin our journey up the CA Coast. My family & I will be returning to the Castle this weekend for some rest & relaxation. You are welcome to join us or continue your stay at the Hotel Del Coronado. Either way, we’ll see you back here on Monday!

Wander With Whiskers – June 6 –San Diego
The “Royal Feline Castle Train” -
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Our time is almost over in San Diego. I hope you have enjoyed its beauty & hospitality. Tomorrow we visit the picturesque town of La Jolla & its famous beaches. Lastly, we will cross over the border into Tijuana, Mexico, for some serious bargain shopping. This will give us one full day to enjoy our hotel stay on Coronado before we hop aboard the Royal Feline Castle Train to our next destination, L.A.! Let me tell you a little bit about the train.

Connecting San Diego through Los Angeles to San Francisco, the Castle Train offers a unique vantage on the California seascape. To get a closer look, you'd have to be on a surfboard! We can admire the Pacific views as we curl along the California coast. Our first stop will be in Long Beach where we will check into our hotel for 3 days on the Queen Mary.

The Feline Castle Train is 1st class, with exquisite fine dining & deluxe accommodations. The train's signature blue-and-gold rail carriages feature elegant lounge & dining cars, a dome observation car, and comfortable sleeping cabins. The interior is furnished in mahogany & brass, with rich upholstery. Our vintage train cars are an authentic slice of Americana, gliding over bridges & through tunnels in comfort & style.

Reminiscent of a scene from a glamorous 1940s Hollywood movie, the Feline Castle Train Dining Cars set the stage for exceptional fine dining experiences. Softly lit & intimate, the romantic atmosphere is elegant, yet relaxed. Your table, graced with fine china & fresh flowers, presents a personal view of the breathtaking vistas unfolding outside the window — a natural backdrop to complement every meal.

Best of all, our cuisine, prepared daily aboard the train, is truly superb. Essentially, the dining cars are regional restaurants on steel wheels. Hand-selected vegetables, herbs, seafood, meats & other ingredients are the freshest & finest available. The chef selects wines to complement the nuances of the evening's fare. The creative pastries served at Afternoon Tea & for dessert are freshly baked in the train's galley oven.

The Dome Car: Soak up the sun's rays or the starry velvet night in the dome car. The glass-enclosed dome car offers 360-degree viewing of the surrounding countryside & is equipped with a bar & library.

The 1940s-era Lounge Car is lavish with fresh floral arrangements, comfortable seating, and a full, professionally tended bar. Cocktails & light hors d'oeuvres are served here. Gather around the baby grand, where our kitty pianist plays your favorites.

Premier sleeping quarters are available to us on board the train & all cabins feature picture windows. So now you know what lies ahead for us next week.
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^

“I Was Strolling Through Balboa Park One Day ...”
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Often referred to as the “Smithsonian of the West," Balboa Park is the largest urban park with cultural institutions in the United States. Encompassing 1,200 acres, Balboa Park exceeds even New York’s Central Park in size. Home to 15 major museums, renowned performing arts venues, beautiful gardens & the San Diego Zoo, the Park has an ever-changing calendar of museum exhibitions, plays, musicals, concerts, and classes—all in the beautiful & timeless setting of this must-see San Diego attraction. The museums cover topics including anthropology, art, aviation, natural science & technology.

Most of the buildings throughout the park are built in a richly ornamented Spanish-Renaissance style. The buildings here are beautiful enough to be considered attractions in themselves, but the real draw is the culture, history, science & arts held within their walls. We will be spending two days here & will try to explore as much of the park as time allows.

We’ll start by visiting a few museums. Our first stop will be at the Museum of Man, exploring the history of man through artifacts, folk art, and archaeological finds. Next, the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, a science museum, but with a very cool state-of-the-art planetarium. Later, a brief tour of the Air & Space Museum, where we can journey through the history of flight, celebrating aviation & space flight history & technology. And finally a visit of the Model Railroad Museum, housing the largest indoor model railroad displays in the world! All aboard!

Before lunch, we will spend time wandering the Botanical Gardens so we can have a picnic outside on the grass in front of the Reflecting Pool. If you look closely into the Reflecting Pool (or Lily Pond), you can see the tranquil waters move slightly from the movement of the Koi that fill the pond. Absolutely NO FISHING allowed! MOL! The view of the Botanical Building with the Lily Pond in the foreground is one of the most photographed scenes in Balboa Park.

Let’s all stop by to see the antique carousel after lunch before we all part to explore the park on our own. The 1910 Park Carousel is a menagerie of animals & is one of the few in the world still offering the brass ring game for everyone taking the 5-minute ride.

We’ll stop at the Park’s Visitor Center & pick up some event schedules & maps. We won’t be visiting the San Diego Zoo until tomorrow, so let’s try to see as much of the park as we can today. We’ll all meet back for dinner at the Prado Restaurant in the House of Hospitality Center around 6 p.m. Keep your cell phones handy (just in case) and enjoy yourselves!
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^

Let’s Explore The Beauty Of The Hotel Del Coronado -
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
During our visit to San Diego, we will continue our stay at the fabulous Hotel del Coronado. Our rooms for the week have oceanfront views & are mere steps from the Pacific Ocean. Let’s revisit the hotel & let me tell you a little bit about this National Historic Landmark that turns 125 yrs old this year.

With its iconic red turrets piercing an azure California skyline, Hotel del Coronado radiates with a confidence of gracious Victorian splendor that is without equal.

Built in 1888, this classic beachfront respite on the charming island of Coronado has long been heralded as one of America’s most beautiful beach resorts. The hotel is ideal for those who yearn for a memorable vacation getaway. The resort’s enchanting island setting & classic architecture form the perfect backdrop for a romantic escape.

The Hotel Del has served over half of the U.S. Presidents who have held the office since 1891. It has also served dignitaries from around the world, including King Edward VIII of England who relinquished his crown so he could marry Coronado resident Wallis Simpson.

Hollywood has been making movies at The Del since 1901. In 1958, The Del was the backdrop for the comedy classic "Some Like It Hot," starring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis & Jack Lemmon. The resort has also seen a steady stream of celebrity visitors - from Charlie Chaplin & Humphrey Bogart to Brad Pitt & Madonna.

What Victorian resort would be complete without a resident ghost? Kate Morgan checked into the resort on November 24, 1892, & never checked out. Reports of ghostly happenings, all thought to be connected to the death of this beautiful young woman, have been circulating at The Del ever since.

The Crown Room, where we had the Coronation, is the same room where Charles Lindbergh & the San Diegans who built his Spirit of St. Louis celebrated the historic achievement of being the first to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. To the left of the lobby is the Ballroom with Ocean Views (for those of us who want to go ballroom dancing!). We can head downstairs to see a gallery of pictures & stories outlining the history of the Hotel del Coronado.

Finally, we can walk outdoors to the Windsor Lawn to enjoy views of the ocean & take some time strolling around the outside of this grand hotel. You can also take a walk along the nearly mile-long Coronado Beach, which you can access behind the Hotel Del.

We’ll be touring San Diego on our Feline Motor Coach tour buses, so let’s all meet in the hotel lobby at 9 a.m. sharp. Your new room keys are at the front desk. Enjoy dear furiends!

Please Vote Puzzle #256239 COTD on Monday June 3rd
Puzzle’s Mom went to County Services to meet this handsome boy. She sat in the kitty room for a very long time hoping to make a special connection with a kitty but sadly she didn't find what she was looking for, as she was about to leave they wheeled in a cart of kittens and there in the middle of them was Puzzle. He didn't take his eyes off of her so she plucked him out and he instantly gave her Nose kisses and of course she decided he would go home with her that day. He still blesses her with this loving gesture every day. Puzzle #256239 is very athletic and likes to jump long distances, although he is not always successful, Mom hears an occasional thud but he shakes it off and tries again!! He loves to hunt the birds, bugs & lizards outside the sliding glass door, occasionally one slips in and mom ruins his game by pitching the offender back out. He also has a stuffed buddy that he carries around with him, chattering away to it the whole time. He loves to play with his favorite toys Kickaroos, Cat Dancers & Charmers. He is very laid back and loves his fursibs ButtonBlue, Add-A-Line, Blondie & his best playing buddy Lolapalooza Lili, although he does get disgusted with her dunking all of his toys in the water fountain. Please stop and give Puzzle #256239 your vote so that he may show off a shiny new COTD Badge.

We would like to Thank Queen Spunky #161265 who gave a wonderful two months of cat shows and travels. Please Stop by and Visit King Whiskers #227256 at the castle, we look forward to hearing more from this kind and caring leader. Please stop by daily and give your support to DOLLY #222609 on her quest to become our July COTM.

Wander With Whiskers - June 2
California Coast Itinerary -
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
We’ll be traveling via the Royal Feline Castle Train so we can all admire the Pacific views as we curl along the CA coast. This legendary Castle Train features domed observation cars, allowing us to see the sights while the train is moving, and comfortable, luxurious sleeping cars, along with numerous amenities. The Dining Car offers fresh cuisine served on real china & table linens, rivaling any fine restaurant.

Here is a brief breakdown of our CA Coast Itinerary:
================================ =^.^=
Week 1
San Diego. California’s second largest city, where blue skies keep watch over 70 miles of majestic coastline & a gentle Mediterranean climate. We will be staying on the charming island town of Coronado, visiting the resplendent & beautiful Balboa Park & the world famous San Diego Zoo. Time allowing, we will explore the picturesque village & beaches of La Jolla (The Jewel) with its beautiful coves & caves. For the adventurous kitties, we might spend an afternoon shopping across the border into Tijuana, Mexico!

Week 2
Long Beach-Los Angeles-San Luis Obispo. Begins with a leisurely morning cruise to Catalina Island, to stroll the quaint streets of the Mediterranean-flavored port town of Avalon. Of course, there's always plenty of reason to stop in Los Angeles. The home of the stars is also home to Hollywood, Malibu, and the people-watching wonder that is the Venice Boardwalk. Just remember to grab your sunglasses & watch for your favorite stars. After passing through the popular resort town of Santa Barbara, the train finishes its route in the charming old city of San Luis Obispo.

Week 3
Hearst Castle-Big Sur Coast Highway-Carmel-Monterey. Our first tour will be to the infamous Hearst castle in San Simeon. We’ll travel alongside the spectacular Highway 1 through Big Sur, designated American National Scenic Byway & California Scenic Highway, an honor reserved for highways that are so distinctive they are destinations unto themselves. Next, Carmel-By-The-Sea, famous for its European charm, white sand beaches & hundreds of shops, art galleries & restaurants. Lastly, a visit to Monterey, home to the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Week 4
Santa Cruz-San Francisco-San Jose. Santa Cruz is best known for its beautiful redwood forest & is home to the “Beach Boardwalk”, a popular seaside amusement park. Sightseeing in one of the world’s most beautiful cities, San Francisco is famous for its natural harbor, lush parks, cable cars, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island & much more. Our tour ends in San Jose, the ‘Capital of Silicon Valley’. We will visit the revitalized downtown & stay at the fabulous Fairmont San Jose Hotel.
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^

CREATURE COMFORTS –(excerpt from Sarah Ban Breathnach)
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
If you have pets, don’t just feed, walk, and ignore them. You invited them into your life, so open your heart. Pets need to be stroked, cuddled, caressed, indulged, pampered, and played with; dote on them & they’ll return the kind of devotion most of us can only dream about receiving from human beings. Talk to them & you’ll discover a trusted confidante who’ll never betray your secrets. Laugh at their silly antics–a sure stressbuster–and learn how to live by observing them. Cats are spontaneous, content to live in the present moment. They’re small, shedding, scratching, inscrutable Zen masters sent to teach us the paradox of undoing in a hectic world where things always have to be done. As the ball of fur presently curled up on my desk clearly demonstrates, the more naps you take, the more awakenings you experience.

Today, be grateful for the gift of sharing your earthly span with creatures who comfort. Animals are our spiritual companions, living proof of a simply abundant source of Love. None of us need feel alone. And if there is a gift, then surely, there must be a Giver.
================================ =^.^=
FINAL CATPAIGN DAY!
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Catpaigning for COTM has been an unbelievable month. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my blogs about cats. My desire was to educate & inform you, as well as make you laugh, sometimes cry, and just proud to be felines.

My Mom & I both thank you for the heartwarming stories & words of encouragement that made my catpaign such a valuable experience. I owe a big thanks to the CMR crew (#46883) for coming by everyday to inspire me & for giving me the honor of being your May candidate. I’d like to say a special thank you to Boo Kitty (#154855) and her Mom Jane for the amazing royal pictography.

~ The Coronation will be held on SATURDAY, JUNE 1st at 9 A.M. (PST)/ Noon (EST) on the CMR Page #46883. ~

**Please visit Queen Spunky #161265 & let her know how much we’ve enjoyed her reign as our beautiful Queen for May!**
================================ =^.^=
To give you a sneak preview of what my reign as King has in store for all of us, I plan a sort of continuation of Queen Spunky’s fabulous tour of California, only we’ll be traveling via the legendary Royal Castle Feline Train up the California Coast. I will be posting an itinerary of the day-to-day events on Sunday. We will begin the tour early Monday morning & as luck would have it, my planned tour starts in San Diego at the Hotel Del Coronado, right where Queen Spunky left us!

…HAPPILY EVER AFTER
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
I’m Saigon, one of the cats here at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, and this is my story.

My whole world turned upside down years ago in a storm I’ll never forget. Everybody else around here calls that storm Hurricane Katrina. For me I only remembered how frightened I was with all that water everywhere. Nothing looked the same anymore, and I didn’t know where to go for help. Thank goodness somebody found me and pulled me out of that mess!

I ended up coming to Best Friends, where I admit I wasn’t ready to trust people in the beginning. You’d think it wouldn’t be so hard, seeing how it was a group of kind people who rescued me from the big storm in the first place. I don’t know why but I was still nervous. I found a place to hide way up high in my new room at Best Friends, and I’m afraid I stayed there an awful long time.

But here’s the thing about the incredible people who work at Best Friends. They never give up on you! They knew I was too scared to come down and say hello, so they took care of me from a distance. I’ll always remember that.

I sat up there watching my cat friends play with people all the time. One day I got to thinking …these people always took good care of me, and want only to make me feel better. They can’t be so bad, can they? I finally decided to give it a go. And you know what? I couldn’t believe what I had been missing.

These days, when the caregivers bring in the food, I don’t even want to eat until I’ve had a chance to say hello. They’re so nice to me.

I guess I can share one more silly detail. For the longest time, I used to watch the other cats in the room play with toys all day long. I used to shake my head at them. It’s kind of odd, maybe, but I was too nervous to enjoy toys. Well, I finally got the concept!

You see, the amazing people in my life have helped me feel so much safer, so much happier, that I finally felt up to trying out some toys of my own not long ago. And guess what? I haven’t stopped playing with them since.

So that’s my story. It started out a bit sad, but thanks to the good people who support Best Friends, I’m living “happily ever after.”

A Word With Whiskers – May 29
CAT DREAMS – by Grace Tolson
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Have you ever wondered what the cat thinks as he sits with his paws folded under, eyes half closed, purring? Perhaps. Or with his tail flashing. I wonder does he dream of mice, of catching the worlds most ferocious mouse. Creeping softly on velvet paws, hush not a sound, closer ever closer, down on his belly, hiding in the long grass.

Now motionless he waits, patiently he crouches, not stirring, tail still, only the movement of his eyes shows that he lives. A sudden jump and he has won, he has caught the monster, holding it tight in his teeth. But the battle is not over yet, the monster will not give in, it wriggles and twists as it tries to free itself from the jaws of the cat, but the cat holds fast. But now he lets the mouse jump free then pounces and grabs it again, he tosses the mouse into the air and catches it as it falls to earth. He lets it go, paws slam it to the ground then he tosses it up again, this game he plays till the mouse falls limp. Limp and dead.

Is this the dream? Or is the dream of a bird gliding low, then snap and he holds it in his jaws. The bird struggles in its panic but iron jaws hold on. Cat the mighty hunter, would be a fitting dream.

Maybe the dream is of world’s far away, world’s lost in time, world’s only the cat knows. World’s where no human exists, world’s where the cat rules and all other animals bow down before him. Does he walk proudly through the jungle, eyes ever watchful, tail erect, head held high. Sometimes climbing trees often times chasing butterflies. Stopping to sit in a patch of sunlight, the sun warms his fur and he delicately washes his paws. Still the eyes are watchful, as a fly flirts with death and flits close as a paw flashes out to bat the fly. He misses, no matter twas only a game.

Now he stretches out, letting the sun warm more fur. His glossy fur, his coat of black shines beautiful in the sun. Night comes & cat awakes. Now he will wander his world, hunting small night creatures. Hush! There is a sound in the night, tiny feet scurry past, cat pounces & the creature is caught.

Is this what the cat is dreaming? Or is he dreaming of what might have been, of love perhaps, of a lady cat, of that which now can never be? Does he remember the feelings from before, does he feel them still? I ask him but he won’t tell. He closes his eyes, puts his head on his paws & sleeps away his day. For what else can a cat do, but be.

SHADOW KITTY – (A Thank You Note) - Anonymous
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Dear Whoever Left Me "Shadow”,

I work in public accounting and lead a pretty miserable life. We work horrible hours and I have almost no time to do anything else in life. One day after leaving work at one in the morning, upon heading to the parking lot, I noticed a box in front of my car. Scared of what was inside, I imagined it to be either a) a bomb, or b) full of baby kittens. Hesitantly, I gently tapped the box with my foot, nudging it knowing the chance of it being a bomb was pretty low. The box felt light - too light to be a box of kittens. In fact, no one meowed when it shook. So I took an even greater risk and peeked inside. I see a tiny baby kitten sitting inside with an empty water dish, soft pillow and warm blanket. Never having thought I would own a cat, I was about to leave the kitten there for someone else to find. However, it was approximately 35 degrees outside and with no food or water, the kitten would surely struggle through the night. So I placed the large box in my passenger seat and brought the kitten home with me.

The tiniest cat I have ever seen, she has the softest black fur, sweetest face and gentlest personality. On the box, in a child's handwriting an index card was scotch-taped to the side saying "Cat's home" and written on the box was "Shadow".

Whatever the circumstances were, since you packed the box with the water dish, pillow and blanket, I can only imagine how much you wanted her to have a good home. This note is a simple thank you, and letting you know she has a wonderful home now and she has brought so much joy into my miserable life. Things are starting to look up, and I will be making life changes soon and hope to find new employment. As far as I know, an angel left Shadow for me that night.

What would I do without you, my precious, furry friend?...
Part mischief, but all blessings, and faithful to the end!
You look at me with eyes of love; you never hold a grudge....
You think I'm far too wonderful to criticize or judge.

It seems your greatest joy in life is being close to me...
I think God knew how comforting your warm, soft fur would be.
I know you think you're human, but I'm glad it isn't true...
The world would be a nicer place if folks were more like you!

A few short years are all we have; One day we'll have to part...
But you, my pet, will always have a place within my heart.

Cats are indeed a blessing.
