Mojo Blackbear ~ Forever thankful for Mom Janada

About Me

Active within 1 Day

Hi! My name is Mojo Blackbear ~ Forever thankful for Mom Janada

I am Domestic Longhair from Aldergrove, BC

Nicknames: The Moj, Moji, the Little Mojito, "the squirrel", "Hoover" (for the way I suck down my freeze-dried chicken treats) and "Mom's little Lady Bug"

** during the time she fed me and my fur family, Lady Dolly’s Mom called me “Black Bear” and my new Mom decided to keep it as part of my name. **

Age: 1 year old

Gender: F

Coat: long haired

Education: I mastered the litter box the very first day and despite being 10 weeks old and semi-feral I turned on my purr motor within 10 minutes of the first time my new Mom touched me. I've adapted to indoor life with humans better than Mom could ever have hoped for.

My favorite tricks and treats are: I am a smart little kitty and I love to figure out how things work. I can pull toys out of my puzzle box no problem, and then I stuff them back in! and I can't get enough of freeze-dried chicken treats!

Where I hang out: I love the thermal mat on top of the TV cabinet. Angel Mallow told me that's the best spot in the house and I should go for it. Know what? She's right!

I also like to snuggle up next to Mom's legs in the night while Mikey sleeps on the pillow above her head. Is it any wonder Mom is sleep-deprived?

My favorite grubs: Whatever is in Mike & Evie's dishes (evil grin)

My pet peeves: Mikey won't wrestle with me as often as I want!

What I love about my owners: My new Mom started brushing me my second day here and it really helped me feel at home, why it was almost like when I was with my fur mom! Being brushed still makes me purr and roll around happily! Indoor life with humans is pretty great!

My cat hobbies: Playing with my white mousey, red dot or Cats Meow. I also love pouncing Mikey and getting him to rassle with me.

How We Met

Q. Lady Dolly's Mom Janada in Washington State fed my fur Grandma and her kittens in the summer of 2012, and managed to get all of them to a shelter except for the one who ended up becoming my fur mom. On October 12, 2013 my fur mom brought the second generation, me and my two siblings, to stay under the hot tub at Lady Dolly’s house too. Mom Janada fed us all and wanted very badly to catch us before she had to go to Arizona for the winter, but our fur mom was semi-feral and we kittens were all very wild. Finally with the help of a nice rescue lady named Kelly they got my two siblings on Nov. 26th, while I stepped into the trap two days later on Thanksgiving. How appropriate! My new Mom came down the next day and picked me up just two hours before Mom Janada had to leave for the airport! My new Mom drove me all the way back to Canada so that makes me an international traveler! On my very first night in my new home, Kelly called Mom Janada to tell her that my fur Mom had just been trapped also. So my whole fur family were now safe and on the road to having forever homes!

Hi sweet Mojo, & Family, it's Talley
We’ll get back to our exciting historic train ride, in just a moment, but dad and I just saw something that we just had to share with all of you;
Calgary Humane Society has launched an innovative new ad campaign in which it hawks “pre-owned” cats in the same razzle-dazzle in-your-face style of late-night used car commercials. Every detail, including the salesman in a bad suit, wide tie and porn-star moustache, is spot on.
Shelters are learning the value of good social media and youtube mojo in saving the lives of shelter cats. At Calgary Humane, 80% of its animals are adopted within 14 days. They offer a Patient Paw program, in which cats and rabbits who have been at the shelter for a longer-than-average time can be adopted for free (dogs in the program are available for a $50 donation). And, the shelter takes professional quality photos of its adoptable pets for the website, a practice that’s proven to increase visits to the shelter and adoption rates.
If your pawrents volunteer with a shelter that lags behind in adoption promotion practices, tell them to speak up! There’s a lot that can be done on social media that does not require extensive resources, but provides significant upticks in adoption rates.


Now our Trip into History continues:

Talley and Whiskers awakened in their sleeping compartment on the train. The sound of happy voices reached them from the dining car. They bathed, dressed and joined the happy kitties for breakfast.
Talley tapped her water glass for attention and announced, “After breakfast, Carriages will be waiting for us and we’ll travel the ten miles of the Colonial Historic Parkway to Jamestown,
I’ll read to you from the brochure, “Re-creations of three ships that brought America’s first permanent English colonists to Virginia in 1607 are moored at Jamestown Settlement’s pier for visitors to board and explore.

Visitors can learn about the four-and-a-half-month voyage from England and take part in periodic demonstrations of 17th-century piloting and navigation. Visit the ‘tween deck of the Susan Constant to learn about shipboard life and the tight conditions during the journey to Virginia. Try steering with a whipstaff or tiller, tie sailors’ knots, climb into a sailor’s bunk.”

The Jamestown Settlement re-creations have been designated “the official fleet of the Commonwealth” by the Virginia General Assembly.
Costumed historical interpreters assist visitors in exploring the ships and learning about the 1607 voyage and 17th-century shipboard activities.
I think we’ll have lots of fun, and learn the important role that kitties played aboard the ships, protecting the supplies and passengers from rats.
“Enjoy your breakfast and get ready for more adventure!”

Awwww, Sweet Mojo
Your tears are a loving tribute to catmom, Janada. She was almost like a fairy godmother to you, sweetie, the way she saved you and your original fur family. And yes, I'm still shedding tears too. That's why it's good for both of us to hug each other. What a beautiful legend you and Mikey and your Mom shared with us--the Indian legend. I sure hope that's true. If it is, yes, Janada was met with a huge flurry of purrs and tail wags! I like to picture her right now holding Angels Leo, Rani, and Lily Rose on her lap.
That sounds so like Janada to help your Mom the way she did. Your Mom and Janada are both very caring and compassionate ladies, and make this ole world a better place! I know Mikey is holding his Dolly's paw and letting her tears dampen his fur. I'll bet Mom Janada is looking down and understanding. Her heart must be warmed by knowing that Dolly and Poppers have such loving furever homes.
Your Mom puts mine to shame. My Mom finally stayed inside yesterday and did a little house cleaning. It's about time! She agrees, though, that it does feel good to haul something OUT of this house:) I'm sending calico kisses and gentle paw hugs to you and your whole family, Moj. Stay close to Mikey. Love, Gin Gin

I know you have a special place in your heart for your "rescue Mom," Janada, sweetie. I'll hold you and you can go ahead and cry into my fur, if it helps. I know your big brother Mikey will stay very close to you tonight. We all loved her so much. A sad and tearful Gin Gin...

Hi Mojo
Hope you are doing well. We were hot today, we reached 86* and it was very humid, but then around 2pm, the rain came and we had thunder and high winds and lots of rain.

Mom did not want to be online or watch TV {we have DTV and no signal when it pours anyway}, so mom sat at the dining room table and did a few word search puzzles.

Then she had dinner and we went back outside when the rain stopped and mom fed MR Squirrel and his friend or maybe his mate some nuts, so we sat and watched them eat them.

Now we are getting more rain and thunder and we all high-tailed it up the stairs to the porch, all dry except for poor Jesse who caught in the downpour running through the rain for shelter.

We really needed some rain, we haven't had any for awhile now and now mom doesn't have to go outside later and water her garden of flowers.

Mom got stung by a bee this morning when she was pruning her Impatiens..taking off the dead petals..she did not see it and it got her right on the finger, but mom put "After Bite" right on it and put some triple anti-biotic ointment on it, so it didn't swell up.

Hope you have a dry pawsome evening!

Hi sweet Mojo, & Family, it's Talley
All Aboard!
Today we will be taking a ride on a train. Our passenger cars are beautifully restored turn of the century luxury cars and we will be dining in style in a fully equipped dining car. Our train will pulled by a 1905 Baldwin Steam locomotive. I have invited all of the residents of the new shelter to join us and I would appreciate any efforts on your part to make them feel comfortable on our trip. I think they might be a little nervous about going on a train, but I know that with your encouragement and friendship we can show them how to relax and enjoy the trip.
Where will be going you ask, (Our perhaps you didn’t, but I’ll tell you anyway.) We’ll be traveling to Colonial Williamsburg, for sightseeing and shopping. We’ll learn about the early days of our country and how the colonists created our nation. Some of our ancestors came over with the very first colonists and they protected the scarce supplies of stored food from the marauding mice and rats. You might even say that we kitties were responsible for the survival of the colonists.
We’ll be visiting a colonial schoolhouse where docents in period costume will show us how the students learned what they needed to know to thrive and prosper in revolutionary America. Then on to the homes of notable founding fathers where we’ll meet Dolly Madison, the seamstress who created our first Stars and Stripes. Following our visits to these houses we’ll visit the crafts shops see how the blacksmiths, cabinet makers, weavers and carpenters made all of the goods that were essential in day to day life, in early America.
Getting hungry? We have reservations at Christana Campbell’s Tavern an accurate recreation of an upscale dining establishment from colonial days. I’ve taken the liberty of ordering for us to save time. Hope you like seafood. Here’s our menu;
The Waterman’s Lunch
A three-course meal starting with a cup of the Eastern Shore Clam Chowder
followed by a dish of gridiron-cooked Salmon, with a Shrimp and Scallop Brochette
adorning a bed of Rice Pilaf with a Lemon Dill Cream, ending with your choice of fresh baked fruit pie. (Apple, Blueberry, Peach or Strawberry)
Following our adventures in Colonial Williamsburg, we’ll return to our waiting train in horse drawn carriages and have dinner in style in the dining car.
The adventure will take place on the Cat’s Meow Resort Page (271826) at any time, (no live blogging.)
I hope you’ll join us for this fun filled outing!
Purrs and friendly headbumps,
Your Servant,
Queen Talley

Hi Mojo!
I'm back! For one reason or another we've been off wandering aimlessly everywhere else but here. *grunt* But now I think we've tidied up (enough) after the big shindig a couple days ago that we can take a few minutes to reply to some blogs.

The weather has really cooled down! Only another couple degrees last night and we would have been in the 30s! We were ready for some cooler weather, but not THAT cool! At least not yet! But it's been nice enough that mom has really stepped up her backyard pre-fall clean-up. She hasn't been doing much out there all summer, so now it needs a lot!

And it looks as if the smoke has blown away too, even though the fires are all still going. They have them under control a little more now, and there was a little rain so that must have helped too.

Well, funny thing about those vampires. We were told (by a few guests) that vampires never hang around where there are angels, and since Summer is an actual angel, we never had anything to worry about. Yeah, but what about zombies...

whenever
you post here it gives janet a good laugh for sure! :) we're happy shes not yawning away as if she was at the start as she had to put in allergy eye drops this morning due to allergies being bad or worse than in the past few days. we're sitting at 66 here this morning and it's feeling more humid than it was at this time yesterday when we were getting more humid. supposed to have some sort of dry cool front going through with just clouds and a scattered chance of a boomer, but very slight at that, but we do need rain down this end of town while the rest got what they were asking for not to long ago last week and as usual most missed us. got a big student move in this weekend starts either today or tomorrow for first and second year students at umass, and the rest are sun-mon there and at the other two colleges here and two more in nearby towns as well. janet's working for double time plus holiday pay so worth it to her. sandy,ab,haley,angels

It's pawsome to be back as the family blogger!
It seems like it takes furever for my turn to come around anymore. I blame mom for it too because it was her idea to keep Piggy & Sneakers inside with us. It's not that I don't like them because I really do but more kitties = less blogging time for the most fun kitty of the bunch (me)...MOL!
To top it off mom was also gone most of the day yesterday so I didn't get to start on the first day of the month! When she got home I made sure to look in all of the shopping bags to make sure she'd gotten more wet food for us. She did so I guess she's forgiven...although I heard her tell dad that gp really enjoyed getting the mice cream cake for his birthday. Hey...wait...that means that someone besides me got mice cream! Totally unfair!! I think it's time to sit mom down & explain that mice cream = a happy calico kitty...MOL!

It was a typical start to our day today with 5 of us racing through the house with the lone observer (Patches) looking at us like we're crazy. Teehee...I don't know about you but I LOVE acting wild & crazy...MOL! I am on the look-out for my chance to get even with Piggy later today because she pounced on me earlier when I was running around. I'm not like most of my fursisters though because I wait for the purrfect opportunity when my prey's defenses are at their lowest. I call it Cyclonic payback & boy, is it sweet...MOL!

It's another really hot day outside! It's been very hot all week so we haven't been able to listen to the birds because the A/C is running. We have been finding some spiders & crickets to chase around though so we're making do with that 'critter' entertainment until it cools off.

Well I don't want to meow your ears off on my first day as the family blogger so will leave you a blueberry popsicle (It's National Blueberry Popsicle day) & zip out of here for now. I'll be back again in a couple of days (hopefully with my tongue frozen from mice cream...MOL) so will see you again soon.

Hi Mojo & elders *snicker*
Well, this IS a surprise! Mom has had a lot of "surprise" COTD winners lately. In fact, almost all of them this year. So, now it's our turn! Yippee! I hope everyone brought their swim suits because we're having one last fling with the slip-n-slid before we roll it up for the season. Then a nice outdoor potluck and maybe campfire songs later. There's still some moon out at night, so don't be scared. Besides, we have the campfire to scare away the vampires.

What? Wait a minute. *psst psss ffft pssst* Oh. *frown* My brother just told me campfires do NOT keep the vampires away. So, well, then. I guess we'll have to invite some werewolves. Maybe that'll do it! But no matter what, have a great time and don't forget to take a goody bag before you head home. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Mojo
How was your weekend? We enjoyed a pawsome one! But now it is Monday again already and Mommy is back at work. Sissy and I miss her. Mr. UPS man delivered a package from PetSmart to our house today. Mommy ordered me some mew chicken & cheese hairball treats. I am very, very picky about my food & treats, plus I am allergic to wheat gluten. So we have to watch everything I eat. The jury is still out if I will eat these treats or not. We shall see! We also got some cute mew Halloween toys. More about those later.

Have a meow-velous Monday.
Purrs,
K Casper Todd

Hi sweet Mojo, & Family, it's Talley
COTM DAY 31
I hope that the ideas and suggestions that I’ve presented during the month have proven helpful. I want to especially thank those of you who took the time to send me ideas that I could share with our friends.
This has been a remarkable month for me and my family.
You’ve sent me so many votes, so many kind words and wishes, so much love. When I was little more than a kitten, (it was back in the day of the shout out COTD catpaigns.) I was nominated for COTD, and as I sat with dad that evening he read me the notes that kitties had sent along with their votes. I kind of got a vision of what was happening and Pete asked me what I was thinking.
This is what I told him; “I just had a vision of what is happening tonight, Pete. Kitties and their families from all over the world are reading about me and sending me votes. What is a vote? Well, it’s easy to think that it’s just a click on a computer, but I think it’s much more. In my mind’s eye I see the world as though I’m looking at it from space. The whole world is a beautiful orb, with no lines marking off the different countries. I see the votes as little yellow scrolls tied with a bit golden ribbon. They seem to be floating up toward me from individual homes. As they rise they join others rising from neighborhoods and the streams of votes from neighborhoods combine to for large streams from cities, and then from states, they flow together to form rivers of sparkling yellow and gold. They make a river of love and caring. Each one is a message of friendship.
The big rivers combine and form rushing torrents of love and goodwill. As the world rotates beneath me I can see that the votes are rising from all over the globe and that powerful rush of love and good will circles the globe and then it all comes rushing down onto our house.
I feel so loved! CC is a very special place and a vote is so much more than just a click.”
All of these years later, I still think your votes are much more than clicks!
My life truly has been blessed. I was rescued by my dad when I was a tiny sick kitten, and I have been loved and nurtured every day of my life. My brother and sisters love me and treat me with kindness and respect. I’ve made many friends here on CC and I met the most wonderful cat in the whole world, my wonderful husband K Whiskers.
I hope with all of my heart that some of the ideas that I’ve presented, can help other kitties to find the kind of life that I have been blessed with. Thank you all so very much!
See you tomorrow evening for a Coronation Celebration.

HOLY
( by K MacVitie)
The peace and joy you give me, no words can ever tell,
The lessons that you teach me, in my heart will always dwell,
Your purrs bring forth divinity, to comfort, heal and bless,
Wondrous being, praise to you for your gracious loveliness.

Love,
Talley

Hi sweet Mojo, & Family, it's Talley
COTM DAY 29
Today we take a break in the catpaign, to make an announcement,
Queens Maggie and Angel Ginger have agreed that the Coronation shall take place on Tuesday September 1st beginning at 7:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time. The ceremony will take place on the Cat’s Meow Resort, (271826). Following the ceremony there will be a reception for all kitties. There will be a delicious menu, Music and Dancing until the wee hours (or until everyone is tired and goes to sleep)
I have to say, It has been an honor and a pleasure to Catpaign this month, and I am so overwhelmed with your support and kindness. I will try to be a good Queen and serve you well.
And now a poem:

Cat-Proofing
Like God keeps His eye upon the sparrow,
I keep my eye upon the cat,
For unlike the little sparrow,
I’m not sure just where she’s at.
She knows the couch is out of bounds,
Yet invariably she goes there,
She ignores the yellow warning tape,
I’ve wound around it, in despair.
I know she likes electric cords,
She pulls them from the wall,
I’ve told her fifty million times,
THAT’S NOT ALLOWED AT ALL!
The wires are rewired now,
To shriek like fire sirens,
If she so much as puts a paw
Anywhere near their environs.
She treats the kitchen counter,
As a fun place on which to glide,
Though it’s purposely lubricated
To make her slip and slide.
When I booby-trapped the cupboards,
I thought, “A-ha! I’ve stopped her now!”
But fearlessly she enters,
And does not blow up, somehow.
Some cat owners keep baskets
Of balls of yarn upon the floor,
My basket’s filled with hand grenades,
Which she bats around ’til she gets bored.
Alternate pencils on my desktop,
On impact will explode,
She always kicks the safe ones off,
How ever does she know?
There’s nothing wrong with cat food,
It’s made special, just for cats,
But she wants steak and baked potato,
GET DOWN! GET OFF MY TABLEMAT!
Just once I’d like to wear a dress,
Not accessorized with cat hair,
But plastic bags do not protect,
How does she get inside there?
I firmly speak; my voice is loud,
Sometimes I fairly SHOUT!
But, somehow her cat meows,
Are loud enough to drown me out.
I tell her time and time again,
CUT OUT THAT LOOKING CUTE!
It would help so much when I yell at her,
If she looked more like a brute.
Her attention span is not too long,
Just long enough to drive me wild,
I’m convinced she had some lessons,
From a clever, spoiled child.
I doubt God’s little sparrows,
Give Him trouble quite like mine,
But He can’t hold them in His lap,
Or hug them any time.
Oh, I suppose it is a tradeoff,
And I do get some relief,
Like when she’s curled up on the couch
Behind the yellow tape, asleep.
I think to master cat control,
Is a fine, accomplished art,
I’ve learned I can cat-proof my house,
But I can’t cat-proof my heart.
I love you all,
Talley

Hi sweet Mojo, & Family, it's Talley
COTM DAY 28
We have a short blog and a long poem today.
I wanted to mention another way to help shelters. It’s something that dad has been doing for quite a while, and we almost forgot to mention it to you. It’s easy, doesn’t cost anything and provides funding for almost any charity that you can think of.
Most of us order things from Amazon, and they have a program called Amazon Smile. You sign up, and then whenever you make a purchase a, small donation is made to the charity you selected.
The small amounts add up, our local “No More Homeless Pets’ told us that they receive almost two hundred dollars a month.
Just a thought, and now our poem....
WHY OWN A CAT
There's a danger you know.
You can't own just one, for the craving will grow.
There's no doubt they're addictive, wherein lies the danger
While living with lots, you'll grow poorer and stranger
One cat is not trouble, and two are so funny,
The third one is easy, the fourth one's a honey
The fifth is delightful, the sixth ones's a breeze.
You find you can live with a houseful, with ease.
So how 'bout another? Would you really dare?
They're really quite easy, but Oh Lord, the hair!
With cats on the sofa and cats on the bed,
And crates in the kitchen, its no bother, you said.
They're really no trouble, their manners are great.
What's just one more cat and one more little crate?
The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty.
The floor is all footprints, the furniture's dusty.
The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care?
Who minds a few noseprints and a little more hair?
So let's keep a kitten, you can always find room.
And a little more time for the dust cloth and broom.
There's hardly a limit to the cats you can add
the thought of a cutback, sure makes you feel sad.
Each one is special, so useful, so funny,
The food bill grows larger, you owe the vet money.
Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay,
Except other cat folks, who live the same way.
Your lawn has now died and your shrubs are dead, too.
Your weekends are busy, you're off with your crew.
There's cat food and vitamins, grooming and shots
And entries and travel and motels, which cost lots.
Is it worth it you wonder? Are you caught in a trap?
Then that favorite comes up and climbs in your lap.
His look says you're special and you know that you will
Keep all of the kittens in spite of the bill.

Late evening is awful, you scream and you shout
At the cats on the sofa, who refuse to get up.
The cats and the cat shows, the travel, the thrills
The work and the worry, the pressure, the bills.
The Whole thing seems worth it, the cats are your life.
They're charming and funny and offset the strife.
Your lifestyle has changed, things just won't be the same.
Yes, those cats are addictive and so's the cat game!

Hi Mojo Blackbear
I am so happy that we don't have to see the Vet as often as mom has to go to the Dr. Yikes: here are what mom is facing the next 2 weeks:

Tomorrow: 2:45---MRA to check the blood vessels in moms brain.
Tues. 9/1-- 5:15pm...MRI
WED. 9/9--2:30...EEG
9/10--Back to the Cardiologist
Mon. 9/14---4:15pm...AEP {it is a test that checks sound waves and electrical waves in the brain}
9/15--Back to the neurologist
10/5---she goes in for an Endoscopy!

Doesn't all of this sound quite exciting?? NOT!!! Glad it isn't me.

We were very cool today. Only got to 64* and cloudy all day...not windy, just breezy. Mom and her friend Sue went downtown and went on the Diamond Jacks River Tour...mom took some pics....it was kinda windy on the water though so mom took a jacket!

We got to go outside and watch mom water her garden when she got home...we stayed on the porch and Winston sat on the picnic table on the other side of the yard...when mom turned off the water, we came back downstairs.

It gets dark kinda early now, so our outside time is getting cut off at 8:30pm..we used to be out til 9:30 or 10pm....a sure sign that Autumn is coming.

Well, I certainly hope you had a nice day!

Hi sweet Mojo, & Family, it's Talley
COTM DAY 27
Today we’re going to discuss a very serious subject; Lost Kitties and how to find to find them. I hope you never need this information!
Top 10 Tips For Finding Lost Cats
1) Not all missing cats are lost. Cats are notorious for hiding in impossible places. Before you assume kitty is missing, make a thorough search indoors. ( I once spent the entire day in mom’s lingerie drawer)
2) If you know your cat is missing, grab your cellphone with a photo of your cat uploaded, flashlight and treats and head out. Wear comfortable clothes and comfortable soft-soled shoes. Hit the streets
3) While you’re searching, ask pedestrians, knock on neighbor’s doors and show the photo. Ask if you can check their garage, sheds, under the porch. To save time, multi-task during the search: leave a missing cat report with your vet, Animal Control, all the other local vets, shelters and rescue groups.
4) When you return home, leave food and water outside your door. Local TNR rescue rescues will often lend a trap. Go outside one last time to check and call your cat’s name before bedtime.
5) If you haven’t already made a missing cat poster, make one. Include: A good photograph, your cat’s name, description, any special identifying marks or collar, when last seen and where (cross street), your phone and e-mail. adding contact info at the bottom of the page cut into four or five vertical strips that can be easily torn off is helpful.
6) Enlist family and friends to help post flyers and spread the word. Have push pins, tape and a staple gun depending on the surface. The best posting spots include street intersection poles, local bulletin boards at grocery stores, library, laundromat and community center.
7) Post missing cats reports at online at Tabbytracker Craigslist, local online newspapers Use social networking like Facebook and Twitter. Ask everyone to share.
8) Visit all your local shelters to look for yourself even if say they don’t have a cat of your description.
9) If you’ve recently moved, extend your search to your old neighborhood.
10) Persevere! Cats have returned weeks and months later. Keep networking, and asking neighbors if they’ve noticed anything. Keep your flyers or posters fresh with a “Still Missing” header.
Today’s poem was selected by my dad!

I Could Pee on This
Her new sweater doesn’t smell of me
I could pee on that
She’s gone out for the day and
left her laptop on the counter
I could pee on that
Her new boyfriend just pushed
my head away
I could pee on him
She’s ignoring me ignoring her
I could pee everywhere
She’s making up for it
by putting me on her lap
I could pee on this
I could pee on this
—Charles Bukowski (or maybe his cat.)

Love to you all,

alls we can say is
she's one amazing lady! :) congrats to her for getting it done herself, here nobody is that good and nat will try to fix small things,but big things like that a plummer is usually called in to do the work. we had a neighbor we used to call as he was a plummer, but retired and finally my dad got the message he wasn't doing the work anymore and had to call somebody else be-fore he went into a nursing home and the cost, well we're having to pay it now! got nice weather here through tomorrow and some of this weekend although temps are gonna start to rise mid 80s not to bad like this coming week with feels like upper 90s and lower 100s with high hum-idity/heat indexes and not good for kids as schools likely will be closing early each day due to the heat as some aren't air conditioned still here and nothing in their budgets to do it either! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hello Mojo
According to Catster magazine, tomorrow is National Pet Day. I sure hope that Mommy will get me a pet. Maybe a goldfish. Or a cute little bunny. I would love to have a furry, cuddly bunny rabbit. But Mommy says that Casper Todd and I would pester it too much & worry it to pieces. Wonder why she thinks that?!

Happy National Pet Day!

Hi sweet Mojo, & Family, it's Talley
COTM DAY 26

I'd like to take a moment, before we begin today’s blog, to thank every one of you, who took the time to come by and offer your support during my catpaign. I feel like I've learned a lot from all of you, and I hope I've offered you some ideas you may not have thought of before. I truly am grateful for your comments, ideas and help.
Well, tonight, I'll address a subject that I probably should have mentioned before. That is “spreading the word.” Shelters have wonderful kitties just waiting for someone to love. There are lots of people who feel lonely and troubled whose lives could be transformed for the better by a furry companion. How do we get them together? Advertising is the answer. It’s effective, but expensive. There is free publicity though, It is through the news media. It can be as simple as writing letters to the editor of your local newspaper, or it can involve establishing a rapport with local television and promoting shelter adoptions. Remember, there are lots of loving kitties available at a much lower cost than going to a breeder or pet shop. (dad has a hard time going to PetSmart on weekends because he always wants to bring all of the kitties home. The important thing though is to get the word out. People who live with pets live longer healthier lives than those who don't. Alley Cat Allies has a media primer on the website and it offers great ideas and sample letters and news releases. The address is http://www.alleycat. org/NetCommunity/Page.aspx?pid=373 . So, to get started, let's resolve to write at least one letter to the newspaper during the month of my reign.

Regarding the Coronation Ball, We still need to arrange the details with Queens,Angel Ginger and Maggie, but one thing is certain. Every one of the kitties on CC is invited to the CMR resort on September 1st, to celebrate at the Coronation Ball, There will be a speech (a very short one, I promise) and wonderful food, , and there will be dancing too. I want to purrsonally shake paws and hug each and every one of you.


And now today, something a little different:

An Old Russian Prayer
Hear our prayer Lord, for all animals,
May they be well-fed and well-trained and happy;
Protect them from hunger and fear and suffering;
And, we pray, protect specially, dear Lord,
The little cat who is the companion of our home,
Keep her safe as she goes abroad,
And bring her back to comfort us

And a poem

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray this cushy life to keep.
I pray for toys that look like mice,
And sofa cushions, soft and nice,
For grocery bags where I can hide,
Just like a tiger, crouched inside!
I pray for gourmet Kitty snacks,
And someone nice to scratch my back,
For window sills all warm and bright,
For shadows to explore at night.
I pray I’ll always stay real cool,
And keep the secret feline rule
To NEVER tell a human that
The world is really ruled by CATS!


I love you all,
Talley

Hi sweet Mojo, & Family, it's Talley
COTM DAY 25
Yesterday was a wonderful day here in Jacksonville. It was 85 and not a cloud in the sky. We didn’t get any thunder boomers either. There was a nice breeze and we got to play in the screened patio while mom & dad worked in the flower beds. Dad has a couple of square foot gardens, and he took some of the tired tomato plants out and put in some lettuce, parsley, beans, and CATNIP. Mom planted flowers, in the front yard beds and down the driveway beds.

Today, I’d like to tell you about an Alley Cat Allies program that helps community awareness of the needs that stray and feral kitties have. It's called Every Kitty – Every City.

http://www.alleycat.org/EveryKittyEveryCity

This what Alley Cat Allies says about the program:
Through the Every Kitty – Every City program, we raise awareness and educate the community in targeted cities about outdoor cats, feral cat colony care, Trap-Neuter-Return, and the importance of accessible, affordable neuter services through workshops, outreach programs, and organizing.

The Every Kitty – Every City program provides individuals, groups, and veterinary professionals in the community with the tools and basic knowledge needed to serve as a community resource. As part of the program, Alley Cat Allies rallies and assists community volunteers, local groups, and private shelters to enhance their already existing Trap-Neuter-Return programs or to seamlessly launch new ones.
Alley Cat Allies sponsors workshops, open to the public, for advice and instruction on the best practices of Trap-Neuter-Return and colony care. We also recruit and help train local veterinary professionals on high-volume, low-cost techniques that will increase the availability of affordable neuter services including early-age spay/neuter and vaccination protocol. To start a program in your city, contact one of the existing programs, Or contact Alley Cat Allies!
This program was vital in establishing the TNR program of No More Homeless Pets, here in Jacksonville.

And now, a funny poem for today:

All I Need To Know About Life
I Learned From My Cat

Life is hard, and then you nap.
One day ignore people, the next day annoy them.
When in doubt cop an attitude.
Curiosity never killed anything except maybe a few hours.
Climb your way to the top, that's why the drapes are there.
Never sleep alone when you can sleep on someone's face.
If you're not receiving enough attention,
try knocking over several expensive lamps.
Make your mark in the world or at least spray each corner.
When you go out into the world, remember:
being placed on a pedestal is a right, not a privilege.

Thank you so much for your love and support! I love you all,
Talley

Hi sweet Mojo, & Family, it's Talley
COTM DAY 24
We never want to think about disasters, but we need to be prepared, (or should I say Purrpared). The ‘Seniors’, Hot Rod and Ziggy, suggested that we post a blog explaining how to prepare to evacuate our homes, should it become necessary.
They are so right, with the fires raging on the west coast, and the first hurricane of the season threatening the Caribbean, and possibly the mainland US, it’s time we took a look at what we need to do.
Before I do anything else, let me post the Web Address for the ASPCA emergency preparedness Website. Everything you need to do is spelled out there;
(Please eliminate any spaces that CC puts into the web addresses)
https://www.aspca.org/pet-care/disaster-preparedne- ss
What is important is that you look at it now and prepare a kit to use when you need it. Basically, you need food, water, bowls, litter and emergency supplies for at least three days. (More is better.) We’ve already discussed first aid kits, but if any of you kitties need medication, that needs to be in the kit too.
Next you need a place to stay. Not all shelters will take pets, so here is a website that provides information on pet friendly hotels:
http://www.pet-friendly-hotels.net/
I know it can be scary to think about having to leave your home, but just think about how scary it would be to be in your home during a fire or a hurricane or a flood. When the emergency is over, use the perishable supplies and replenish your go-kit so that you’re always prepared for the unexpected.
The family needs to be prepared, that means the whole family including the four legged members.
Thanks again to Hot Rod and Ziggy for suggesting this topic.
And now our poem;
Cats
There was a spry woman
who lived next door.
She had cats in the attic
and cats on the floor.
There were cats where she ate
and cats where she slept,
And she dearly loved all
the cats that she kept.
At night she tucked each
in a wee little bed,
But they all much preferred
to wander instead.
The ripped through the screens
and battered through holes.
They climbed up the chimney
and slid down clothes poles.
They made a great racket
and scurried around.
They jumped from the roof
to the fence to the ground.
When the night was over,
at the crack of dawn,
The cats came home
with a sigh and a yawn.
They were quiet and docile
and gentle as silk
And came a-begging
for morning milk.
The neighbors were furious,
frustrated, and frantic,
Refusing to stand for
another cat antic.
When they came to complain,
they were offered a treat.
The cats were all kittenish,
playful, and neat.
They blinked and stretched
and purred on their mats.
Who would believe
there were the same cats?
By (Dorothy Golub)
Love to you all, dear friends,
Talley

btw, we love your new pictures. janet's tried uploading some of hers, but keeps getting rejected ever since she went back to piccassa to do hers, but at least they go up on fb which beats nothing. you can feel the stickiness in the air as a humid front came through just when janet and nat were getting back last evening from their late afternoon/early evening walk as both that and the early morning walks will soon be a thing of the past on janet's day off or in the afternoons which soon will move closer to suppertime and not an ideal time to walk either with all the traffic and having to get or eat supper. sandy,ab, haley,angels

OR DO THEY NEED TO SINCE THEY HAVE GILLS? ITS STILL A MYSTERY TO ME. MAYBE FISH DO LIKE DOGGIES DO...HEHE...DOGGIE DO! THEY EAT THEIR OWN POOP! PERHAPS THERE ARE SO LOW LYING CATFISH IN THERE TO CLEAN UP THE ALGEA AND POOP? NAH THOSE SHOES AINT MADE FOR DANCING, THAT'S BOOT.

HEY MOJ! PART DOS!
WELDING? HISSING? SPITTING TOO? DOES THE BLUE FLAME COME OUT AND THE WELDER WEAR A TINMANS HELMET? AND WHATS THIS BALL VALVE? LIKE WHATS IN OUR TERLET TANK? IT HAS TO BE BETTER THAN THOSE SHORT LIVED WASHERS AND O-RINGS. I ALWAYS THINK OF ROCKET SHIPS WHEN I THINK OF O-RINGS. ISNT THAT WHAT CAUSED THE CHALLENGER TO BLOW UP...FAULTY O-RINGS? SUCH A TRAGEDY! DD YOU KNOW THAT ONE OF THE ASTRONAUTS WAS FROM HERMOSA BEACH? WELL ACTUALLY HE WAS FROM MICHIGAN BUT THERE WAS A GREGORY JARVIS MEMORIAL ON THE STRAND IN HERMOSA BEACH JUST DOWN THE STREET FROM US IN HIS HONOR. AND TIM KELLY. HE WAS A FAMOUS SURFER WHO DIES WAY TOO YOUNG.

SNIFF SNIFF.....MR.TIM KELLY WAS ONLY 24 WHEN HE DIED IN A CAR ACCIDENT OF HIS WAY TO TRESTLES FOR A SURFIN' SAFARI. MOM REMEMBERS HIS STATUE OF HIM ON HIS BOARD AT THE FOOT OF HERMOSA PIER SINCE SHE MOVED THERE IN 1964, THE YEAR HE DIED.
OH GEE, I GOT A LITTLE OFF-TRACK THERE, DIDNT IT? GOSH BUT BIG BRO WILL SURE HAS A THING FOR MAKING SMOKE, DONT HE? FIRST READING UNDER THE SHEETS THEN BURNING HIS GOURMET FOOD STUFF? BUT DONT MOST KIDS READ UNDER THE SHEET WITH A FLASHLIGHT, NOT A BEDSIDE LAMP? OH AND HOW THOSE BED SHEETS STINK WHEN THEY START SMOLDERING!

YOU ARE LUCKY TO HAVE SMOKE ALARMS ALL ABOUT THE HOUSE, BUT YOU LIVE IN A McMANSION WHILE WE CAN SEE EVERY PART OF OUR HOUSE FROM ONE ROOM TO THE NEXT. AND HAVE LOTS OF ESCAPE WINDOWS, AND TWO DOORS. MOM IS PRETTY CAREFUL ABOUT TURNING OFF THE STOVE AND OVEN. ALTHOUGH SHE'S PRETTY GOOD ABOUT BURNING TOAST. SHE RATHER LIKES THE CHARRED STUFF.

SO THE FURNACE CAN SEND OUT CARBON MONOXIDE WAVES? GOOD IDEA TO GET THE C/M DETECTOR. EVERY BIT AS IMPAWTENT AS A SMOKE DETECTOR CUZ THE C/M CAN JUST PUT YOU TO SLEEP AND YA NEVER WAKE UP. I AGREE, JUST GET A NEW MOTOR AND NOT A WHOLE NEW FURNACE! SO WHATS ON THE PAINTING AGENDA FOR MOM? INDOORS OR OUT? MOM SAYS IT'S SENSELESS FOR US TO PAINT CUZ OF ALL OUR CAT HAIR FLYING ABOUT AND BESIDES, WE'D BE ALL OVER IT! WE DONT WANNA LICK PAINTY PAWS NOW, DO WE? OOOH NEW TUB? MAYBE A NICE PINK ONE? MOM HAD A PINK ONE IN HER LAST PLACE IN SO.CAL. IT WAS SOOOOO PRETTY!

MY MOM NEVER WORK BIRKENSTOCKS OR EARTH SHOES. NO MA'AM, JUST THE FLIPPERS. SHE DID HAVE THESE PLATFORM CORK HEELS THAT WERE RED AND JUST HAD THE FRONT PART, SORTA LIKE A CLOG PUT MORE STYLISH. THEY TOOK AWHILE TO LEARN TO WALK IN AND MADE FOR STRONG CALF MUSCLES. YOUR MOM HAS A LONG MIDDLE TOE? ON ONE FOOT OR BOTH? MOM HEARD THAT IF YOU HAVE A LONG INDEX TOE THIS MEANS YOU'RE A GOOD BUSINESSMAN OR WOMAN. MOMS INDEX AND MIDDLE TOES ARE WEBBED.

WELL MOJ, GOTTA GET MY GETALONG GETTING ALONG! IT'S KINDA CHILLY STILL RIGHT NOW. FANS OFF, SWEATSHIRT ON. AND WOW JUMPED UP TO 73* FROM 63* HALF AN HOUR AGO! NOT AS SMOKEY TODAY AS YESTERDAY.

Hi sweet Mojo, & Family, it's Talley
COTM DAY 23

Dad received a solicitation in the mail from the Humane Society of the United States. And while he feels that they don’t get enough of each contributed dollar to shelters, he found some of the ideas here worthwhile. (dad prefers to support Alley Cat Allies and local shelters) but here are ten Ideas from HSUS.

1. Tell the world how you feel about your local shelter or rescue by using The Humane Society of the United States' Facebook share graphics.
2. Get to know your local shelters and rescue groups. Start the process by locating all of the ones in your area. You may be surprised how many groups nearby are helping animals.

3. Learn before you leap. Before you adopt, go to the Shelter Pet Project to learn what to expect when adopting a pet. You'll be much less likely to become frustrated and return your new pet if you understand the challenges and rewards of adopting a pet beforehand.

4. Say Thanks, Take a minute to express your gratitude to the people who work at your local shelter or rescue groups. If you've adopted a pet from one of them, show how well your pet is doing by sharing an updated picture via a letter, email, or posting it on the organization's Facebook page or website.

5. Get Crafty. Combine fabric, yarn, recyclables, and imagination to bring much-needed fun into the lives of local shelter and rescue pets. There's no end to the toys you can make. Try braiding strips of fleece into fun for dogs, or cutting and folding a surprising household object into a cat distractor.

6. Become a “Fan”. Like" the Shelter Pet Project on Facebook. Then, if possible, "like" the individual groups in your community, too.

7. Make wishes come true. Shelters and rescue groups always need towels, toys, and other supplies. Check their websites for wish lists or call them to find out what's in short supply.

8. Volunteer, if you can!

9. Help by helping your own pets, Microchip, tag and keep them safe!

10. Help local shelters make positive changes. If you see or hear anything at your local shelter that concerns you, follow The HSUS's guidelines for addressing that concern in the most effective way.

Nothing new here, but just a reminder.

And now, I have a short, funny little poem for us today:

You will find that feeding a cat is no easy task
What's the big problem you may well ask
Just open a tin and feed them from that
It is obvious my friend you don't own a cat
When outside they will eat a fly or a mouse
But things soon change when they dine in the house
Your fridge might be full of meat, poultry and fish
But what do you put in your fussy Cats dish
For to keep a Cat fed we beg, steal and borrow
Because what we give them today they won't want TOMORROW.

I love you all, dear friends,
Talley

Hi Moj!
Oh, my word! I sure hope that picture of you and Mike is all a matter of perspective. Because you look almost as big as him! That CAN'T be right!

Oh yeah, mom makes up ALL kinds of excuses about why she doesn't have all the time in the world for CC these days. Like all that yard work stuff, and even house work! Organizing things, since it's been a little cooler she wants to do a few things. Well, I say, since it's a little cooler, why not catch up on OUR STUFF!! Oops *blush* didn't mean to holler. But criminy, I get SO grrr hmmph! :-)

I know what you mean about barely filling up one garbage container. We have a giant barrel provided by the garbage company, and we all barely fill it 1/4 full every week. And in the winter, it's even less!

As you may or may not know, Washington state has been on fire for the past month or so. Last night a fire started directly north of us and the wind blew all the smoke down here. Our sky is completely brown this morning. And mom has been coughing a lot too. She's trying to find out exactly where the fire IS! We may have to evacuate, or at least be prepared for it. Right now it seems as if we're okay, but one can't be too cautious!

One of the fires way to the north was expected to cross over into Canada, but we haven't heard if it did or not. It's by Okanogan, along the border. WE just hope they can get all these fires out SOON! *gasp coff*

Hi sweet Mojo, & Family, it's Talley
COTM DAY 21

Even though today’s blog is off of our topic, I wanted to share this. I just have a family story and a poem for you. The poem and the story together, are kind of long so I’ll get right to it;
~~~~~~~~~~~~

In the days after my sister Angel Lucy Fur crossed the Rainbow Bridge, my dad was inconsolable. He missed her terribly and he just couldn't seem to get over the heartache. They had been best friends for seventeen years and Lucy was very precious to him.
Whenever he would go to bed, He imagined that he could feel her jump up to share his pillow, as she always had. He'd reach up to feel her soft fur and he'd find only emptiness on the pillow and in his heart.
It was a week after Lucy died that dad had a remarkable dream. He said it was so real he felt that he was really there. In his dream, he heard a soft scratching at the front door and when he opened it, there was a big black cat at the door just sitting quietly. The cat turned and looked away from the house toward the little memorial garden where Lucy had been buried. There were dozens of cats there, all looking so radiantly beautiful in the afternoon sunlight that they seemed to shine from within, with a light of their own. Sitting in the very front of the gathering, was Lucy. She looked at dad and slowly winked her eyes at him. Then, with a swish of her tail, she turned away and led the cats down into the back garden, fading away as they went. Dad awoke from that dream with tears in his eyes, but he knew that Lucy had come back to say a final goodbye and to let him know she was ok and that she would be waiting for him..........
Dad could hardly manage to tell mom about the dream, he kept choking up, but mom found this poem for him. He copied it in very small print, and still carries it in his wallet.
Here is that special poem that dad copied back in 2008;

*Thud* as you hear,
A cat jump down,
Turn around to check,
Nothing there,
*Meow* goes a cat,
Where from?
I don't see,
Something wrapping around your legs,
Go away Smokey,
You look down nothing there,
*Jump* as the bed bounced,
The cat jumped on the bed,
But you look....there's no cat,
*creak* goes the door,
The cat sneaked out,
But no cat to be seen,
You hear a cat eating/drinking,
But there's no bowls or cat,
Whats making these noises?
There's no cat, not no more,
He died on 20th May,
so what makes these movements?
Not the dog he's too noisy,
Could it be Smokey's spirit?
To say he's ok?
Or is it just your mind playing tricks,
Making you think he is still around.

By Stacey Olner

Hi Mojo Blackbear
Wow, was it ever a cool day today, after the heat of last week, today felt good. It was only 73* and cloudy and we had rain overnight and early this morning. It is supposed to remain cool for the next few days.

Mom was home with us all day today, all she did was go to Family Dollar and she was only gone for maybe an hour..she got cat food, kitty litter, milk and other stuff.

We were all outside in the yard with mom...she was doing some word search puzzles and pruning some of her flowers to get all the dead leaves and buds off.

Mom made her appt to see the Gastroenterologist next week. She goes on WED after work...so she will find out rather or not she needs to stay on the Prescription Prilosec...she hopes if she has to, it will stay the prescription cause them things are really costly for a months supply, and moms health plan covers the cost of all prescriptions.

We got our new kitty tree from eBay yesterday and mom assembled it last night and she got pictures of all but Jesse on it..he just walks past it and pays it no attention, but mom will get one soon she hopes.

We posted some pics of just the tree and us on it on all our pages except for Jesse...that cat is just to hard to photograph..he knows the camera and refuses to sit still or even look at it....silly boy!

Well, I sure hope you have a pawsome evening!

BUT WHAT DOES THAT REALLY MEAN? MOM DOES PRETTY GOOD AT THRIFT STORES BUT SHE SERIOUSLY NEEDS TO GET THERE AND DO SOME SERIOUS SHOPPING! SHE'S NOT ONE FOR LONG PANTS BUT DOES HAVE HER COLORED SKINNY JEANS AND REGULAR BLUES. SHE PURFURS SHORTS ALL YEAR.

YOUR MOMS TALL SO IT MIGHT BE HARD TO GET A GOOD FIT AND THE RIGHT LENGTH TOO. WE HAVE A TON OF SHORT ROLLY POLLY LADIES AROUND TOWN. SOME ARE TALLER AND REALLY WIDE LOADS IF YA KNOW WHAT I MEAN. SOMETIMES MOM THINKS SHE'S THE SMALLEST ONE IN THE STORE BUT SHE DONT FEEL ALL THAT SMALL. WE THINK THESE CHICKS DONT OWN MIRRORS CUZ OF THEIR LOW RISE AND MUFFIN TOPS, CROP TOPS SHOWING OFF LOVE HANDIES! NOT SO PRETTY. YOU MOM WORE HEELS? WHILE MOM THINKS THEY'RE PRETTY AND MAKES THE LEGS LOOK GREAT SHE REALLY HATES HEELS. SHE HATES SHOES. JUST FLIPPERS FOR MY KOOKIE MOM. I GUESS HAVING HER LEG BEEFED UP LIKE THAT WOULD PUT THE KIBOSH ON THE HEELS. BESIDES, THEY ARE BAD FOR YOUR ANKLE AND CALF MUSCLES, NOT TO MENTION THEY THROUGH OFF ONES POSTURE. ALTHOUGH MOM LIKED THE PLATFORM HEELS. SHE CALLED THEM HOOKER HEELS.

YOUR LAWN SOUNDS LIKE OURS. NO GREEN GRASS BUT SOME GREEN WEEDS. OUR DIRT THAT SHOWS IS REALLY PACKED DOWN LIKE CEMENT SO IT DONT BLOW AROUND. I HOPE YOUR MOM DONT HAVE TO CUT THE LAWN AGAIN TIL OCTOBER!! WELL, GIRL, GOTTA RUN AND PLAY CATSUP! I BROUGHT SOME CHILI CHEESE MOONPIES WITH VELVEETA SMOOTHIES! HAVE A GREAT DAY! LUVYA ZIPPY ♥

Hi sweet Mojo, & Family, it's Talley
COTM DAY 20
Today's topic is Reliable Cat Health Information and the Cornell University Feline health Center. They have some great information on Cat Health Topics, in general, and in particular their Spay Neuter program, but the article is quite lengthy, So I'm giving the web address and asking that you stop by and check out the site. It would take several CC Blogs to print it here so I think this is the best way to bring it you. The Address is: www.vet.cornell.edu/fhc.

This is a funny story that I would like to share with you about my brother Pete. When he was just a little kitten he had some kind of immune deficiency that caused his paw pads to crack and bleed. Our vet first diagnosed it as chemical burns, which dad knew wasn’t right. Finally our vet referred Pete to a Feline Dermatologist. His name was Dr. Bishop. He was a Graduate of Cornell.
He took one look at Pete’s little pink paws and said that he had Eosinophilic Granuloma Complex. He said that kittens grew out of it as their immune systems developed, but untreated, the normal course was to develop a serious and sometime fatal infection.

Pete had to have his paws cleaned with a special medicine three times a day and take antibiotic pills morning and evening. Pete was a very mellow kitten, and after the third day he realized that he would get treats for taking his medicine, all dad had to do was put the pills down on his plate and Pete would eat them and then look for his treats. On one of his recheck visits, dad showed Dr. Bishop how easy it was to get Pete to take his medicine. Dr. Bishop thought it was amazing, and asked if he could borrow Pete to show to the class that he taught at the University of Florida. Dad said no, that he couldn’t borrow Pete, but that he would bring Pete to class.
Dad was a little worried that Pete might not do his pill trick in front of a hundred Veterinary Students, but he didn’t even seem to notice them. He took his pills, the class erupted in laughter and Dr. Bishop told his students that giving cats medicine didn’t have to be hard, it just required a gentle touch and love.
I hope that made you smile.

Tonight's Poem is a short one by Mary F. of North Carolina; Ms. Murphy picked it for us.
Here it is:

I found a small kitty
so tiny and scared.
I don't know who dumped her
or how she has fared.

She's cold, wet and skinny
such a pitiful sight.
I suspect she has been out here
for many a night.

How could someone dump her?
It seems such a pity.
Some people are cruel
to poor helpless kitties.

Come with me little kitty
I'll make everything right.
You will no longer be hungry
or cold at night.

Your life will be better.
All the love you can stand.
No more neglect for you.
Only a kind, gentle hand.

Love to all of you,
Talley
