How We Met

A few days after Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey, we noticed a very small cat hanging out on our deck. She came back the next morning, peaking into house at us. Again, she appeared late in the afternoon, and came right up to the door. Over the next couple of days, we fed her, of course, and got a close look. Little cat had a slight ear tip but was not afraid of people, and on the third day, we were able to pet her, but she scampered off before we could grab her. She returned the next morning, hopping from stone to stone on the front walk to avoid freshly fallen snow. Slappy, as we now called her, came up to the back door, and waited patiently for breakfast. We had plans to leave on vacation, so we needed to figure out what to do with our little visitor. We scooped her up and brought her to our local animal shelter, where we knew she would be safe while we were gone. It turns out Slappy was about 6 months old, already spayed (remember her ear tip), but had no microchip. When we returned from vacation, we brought her home to foster while we tried to find her family. Although we put up posters around town, ads in the local paper and pictures of websites, nobody claimed this adorable little girl. Months passed and Slappy became a part of our family.

Hi Slappy,
I resent the Advent Calendar to your Mom. I checked my Jacquie Lawson order and I see your Mom still hasn't activated it. Is she having problems?

I'm thrilled to hear you have full run of the house and can spend time with the White Paws without any fights. Does Babette like it when you give her a chase? That is sweet that you snuggle under the bed with Roswell!

Is this the first snow you remember? Aren't you glad you are an inside kitty where it is warm and toasty. Were your pawrents able to take a picture of your house with the new Christmas lights. I bet it looks beautiful and very festive. Post the picture if you can.

Aww, thank you, Slappy and the furamily!
Looks like CC will be around at least up to Mid-Feb.


Hello kitties!

The Big Four: Robber Barons of the Gold Rush, Crocker, Hopkins, Stanford and Huntington

Mark Hopkins, Jr. (September 1, 1813 - Match 29, 1878)

When the California Gold Rush began, New York entrepreneur Mark Hopkins Jr. created the "New England Mining and Trading Company", a group of 26 men each of whom invested $500 to purchase goods and ship them to California for sale. On January 22, 1849, Hopkins left New York City on his way to California. After rounding Cape Horn, the ship arrived in San Francisco on August 5, 1849.

Hopkins first opened a dry goods store in Placerville, California, but it did not succeed and he relocated to Sacramento where he opened a wholesale grocery in 1850, with his friend Edward H. Miller. Miller would later become secretary of the Central Pacific Railroad.

In 1855, Hopkins and railroad tycoon, Collis P. Huntington, formed "Huntington Hopkins and Company" to operate a hardware and lucrative iron business in Sacramento. In 1861, as part of The Big Four, he founded the Central Pacific Railroad.

Sometimes called "Uncle Mark", he was the eldest of the four partners and was well known for his thriftiness (it was said that he knew how to "squeeze 106 cents out of every dollar", a reputation that gained him the post of company treasurer. Noted American historian Hubert Howe Bancroft quotes Collis Huntington as saying, "I never thought anything finished until Hopkins looked at it". Bancroft described Hopkins as the "balance-wheel of the Associates and one of the truest and best men that ever lived."

A Whig and later associated with the Free Soil Party, Hopkins was an Abolitionist and an organizer of the Republican Party in California.

The Hopkins mansion on Nob Hill
Despite his renowned thriftiness, his wife managed to persuade him to build an ornate mansion at the top of Nob Hill in San Francisco, California, close to mansions of other Central Pacific founders. The construction project commenced in 1875.
The architects were the prominent San Francisco firm of Wright and Sanders and the project manager was architectural engineer William Wallace Barbour Sheldon, who, not coincidentally, worked for Hopkins under the Southern Pacific Improvement Company.

By then, Hopkins was having health problems and died aboard a company train near Yuma, Arizona in 1878, with the house not yet completed. Eventually finished and occupied by Mary, the structure burned to the ground in the fire caused by the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. The Mark Hopkins Hotel (recently InterContinental Mark Hopkins, San Francisco) was built in its place in 1926, and remains a legendary San Francisco landmark.

TOMORROW : Collis Huntington and Leland Stanford

Hi Slappy,
Ask your Mom if she has downloaded the Advent Calendar my Mom sent her yet - it is already the 4th of December!

That is so nice that your Mom spent special time with each of you over the Thanksgiving weekend. We didn't have any company here so Mom spent time with all of us also.
That is nice that you get along with all the White Paws. Do you get along with Pepe & Roswell better than Babette? Does Babette ever sleep with you like Roswell does?
My Mom tried introducing me to all of the kitties in this house when I arrived, and it never worked. I get along with some of them; however, Saunter hates me and charges at me the minute he sees me and hurts me. The first time, Mom broke us up and got the worst of it! I, on the other hand, will chase Ali when I see her. Ali hides so I never actually hurt her. I have to stay in my safe room all the time now. I do get to go out on the lanai also by myself.
It sounds like you have settled in there and have the run of the house now. You are definitely one of the White Paws!

Hi Slappy,
I'm so sorry to hear your Mom had a really bad migraine this past week. How is she feeling now? Does your Mom have a long weekend off for Thanksgiving?
You like turkey and veggies? We don't eat human food here? Mom has to eat all the leftovers herself. You're a birdie lover, huh?
We had a great Thanksgiving here. We hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving also.

Hi Slappy!
want to thank everyone for the votes, friendship and support that you have given me! Thank you so much.

Day 19

Allow me to introduce you to General Phil Sheridan's beautiful black horse Rienzi who was renamed Winchester.

Rienzi was foaled at or near Grand Rapids, MI. and was brought into the Union Army by an officer of the 2nd Michigan Cavalry. He was presented to Sheridan, who was a colonel at the time, In the spring of 1862, when the regiment was stationed at Rienzi, MS. The horse was almost three at the time.

Rienzi was over seventeen hands tall, black in color, powerfully built, deep chest, strong shoulders and was very smart. In his prime he was one of the strongest horses Sheridan had ever known. Rienzi always held his head high an was a quick mover but Sheridan was always able to control him. He was also very cool and quiet under fire.

At the battle of Cedar Creek on October 19,1864, Rienzi has his name changed to Winchester, the town made famous by Sheridan's ride to save his army. The distance from Winchester to Cedar Creek is 19 miles. Sheridan mounted on Rienzi rallied his retreating troops and the followed him back to the front and won the battle.

The battle of Five Forks, Sheridan shouted "Where is my battle flag?" he seized it and he dashed ahead followed by his command of cavalry and infantry. Winchester leaped the low works and landed Sheridan amid astonished Southerners. Behind came Merritt's cavalry in a charge that pushed the Confederates back in confusion.

Winchester passed a comfortable old age in his master's stable and died in 1878.

The horse was sent to a taxidermist and was first displayed at the museum at Govenor's Island and is now at the Smithsonian. He was a quite a horse.

I will introduce you to JEB Stuart's horse and General Meade's horse tomorrow.

Thank you for the wonderful welcome
to Cat Channel, Slappy & family! (Is everyone here royalty? Does that mean I have to curtsy all the time?) I have only been here for less than a day but I already know I'm going to love it here. So many kitties, and so much to do and see, who wouldn't love it here? I am a very lucky kitty. Hugs, Anya and the Zoo Crew

Good evening! I want to first thank everyone for coming by and voting for me and for the kind compliments on my blogs. Thank you for the support and friendship.

Day 18

General Jackson's horse...

General Jackson had his favorite charger from the beginning of the war. It is thought that the horse was eleven years old. On May 11, 1861, Jackson was in command of the garrison at Harper's Ferry, when a train load of supplies and horses was on the way to Union camps, was captured. Among the horses there was one that captured General Jackson's eye. He purchased the horse from the army's quartermaster for his own personal use. The horse was named Old Sorrel. Old Sorrel carried Jackson over many bullet swept battlefield and was with Jackson when he was shot by his own troops at Chancellorsville. During the swift campaign through the Shenandoah Valley in 1862, when Jackson's "foot cavalry" marched towards the citadel at Washington, the horse was his constant companion.
In 1864, at a state fair in Hagerstown, MD, Old Sorrel was one of the main attractions, He was tethered in a corral and got to munch on hay and choice bits of vegetables. Nearly all of his mane and tail had disappeared before the end of the fair! Poor horse.
When Old Sorrel died, admirers of General Jackson sent him to a taxidermist and Old Sorrel had him stuffed. Old Sorrel now rests in the Soldier's Home in Richmond, VA.

Tomorrow I shall do General Sheridan's horse. Mom has seen him at the Smithsonian and says he is a pretty horse and had to been beautiful when he was alive!

Hi Slappy!
I am so glad to meet you!

Hello! I am going to introduced you to the horses of General Grant. He had quite a few but I am just going to introduce you to the ones that he really liked.

Day 17

When General Grant was appointed Colonel of the 21st Illinois Vol. Infantry, he bought a horse in Galena, IL. Though the horse was strong, he wasn't suited for the service. While taking his regiment to MO, they camped on the Illinois River. During this time, a farmer brought in a horse called Jack. He was a cream colored horse with a mane and tail that were silver in color with his hair becoming darker towards his feet. He was high in spirit, intelligence and a stallion. Grant used him until after the battle of Chattanooga in 63. Grant donated the horse to the Sanitary Fair in 63 or 64, and the horse was raffled off for $4,000.00!

During the battles of Fort Donelson and Shiloh Grant rode a brown roan horse called Fox. (Wasn't anymore info on him)

At Shiloh, the Confederates left behind a very ugly, rawboned horse, that was apparently not good for anything. As a joke, an officer gave the horse to Grant. Grant named the horse Kangaroo. With a short rest, food and care, Kangaroo turned out to be a magnificent horse and was used at Vicksburg. Grant also had two other horses, gave one away and used the other until late in the war.

Jeff Davis, a small black horse or large pony, was ridden by Grant because of a carbuncle that made riding a spirited horse painful. Jeff Davis was an easy riding, smooth gaited horse. Grant bought him and kept him until he died.

Grant was given his charger, Cincinnati, by S.S Grant. Grant kept Cincinnati until he died in 1878.

In January of 1864, some people purchased the prettiest horse they had ever seen for Grant and his name was Egypt. (I couldn't find anymore info about him)

I will be doing Generals Jackson, Sherman and Sheridan's horses over the next two days.

I want to thank you for the continued support, votes and friendship. I am so honored.
