How We Met

I had recently lost my previous cat, Peja, so I went to my local shelter for some "fur therapy". My sister happens to work there and brought this tiny girl to me. It was instant love between both of us. A couple of months later, as a gift, I was able to adopt her and bring her to her forever home.

Hi Sakura
Nope, no ice this week. In fact, it's been getting warmer. 50s by tomorrow, but lots of rain, and really high wind, up to 50-60 mph. Not mom's favorite. We had some bad wind and rain today, that kept mom in, and put a stop to her last minute shopping. She'll try again Monday. It's supposed to be nicer by then. We shall see.

Haha! None of "the boys" here have the Me Tarzan attitude. More like Me Neutered, you not interesting! MOL!

Dear Sakura,
How sweet, lying on the sofa with GGM! Don't you just love it? I like the way you sleep with your Mom. I sleep on my Mom's chest with my face right by her mouth. Sometimes I lick her lips! I'm giving her kisses.

I left a vote on your page and hope that you and yours had a great Caturday.

Purrs & hugs,

Hi Sakura
I'm being VERY brave right now! Big Sis Becky is here, she's been here most of the day and I've been (blush) under Mom & Dad's bed most of the day. But now Becky is downstairs talking with Dad so I came out to cuddle with Big Bro Will while he watches TV.

I look like I'm napping, but I have my ears open. When I hear Becky coming up those stairs, I will be off like a shot! Nothing purrsonal, Big Sis Becky :) -- Mojo

Good afternoon/evening kitties! Today's topic is: BITING & NIPPING!

Kittens love nothing more than to stalk and pounce, sometimes delivering a painful bite in the process. Puppies like to bite/chew..on furniture, shoes or even you....but when puppies and kittens grow up and are still biting/nipping, here are a few tricks to keep it under control.

PROVIDE PLENTY OF TOYS: Dogs/Cats have a natural need to use their teeth. To help them put their mouths to good use, provide them with plenty of toys--and give them lots of praise when they use them.Dogs enjoy rubber or rawhide, while most cats enjoy cloth toys or a rubber mouse.

KEEP YOUR SKIN SAFE: Pets will chew what you give them, and if their "main" toy happens to be your hand, they are learning a dangerous habit. NEVER allow your pet to chew directly on you, give them toys instead.

GIVE HER A CHEWING OUT: The next time he points his teeth in your direction, look him straight in the eyes and firmly yell, "NO". Then ignore him for several minutes. Once he understands you are not happy with what he he is doing, he will try his best to please you next time.

SAY IT WITH SPRAY: The next time Fluffy or Fido tries a nip, spray him with a squirt bottle filled with water, after a few times of getting sprayed, he will get the hint.

***~~CATS ONLY!!!~~***

DON'T FIGHT BACK: It's natural to pull away when your ferocious feline sinks her teeth--in fear, fun or anger--into you. Unfortunately, that makes her instincts tell her to bite harder. So the next time she nails you, try to let your hand go limp for just a second until she relaxes--then pull your hand free and give her a firm scolding!

Tomorrow: OBESITY!!!

Hey Sakura!
Hope the family enjoy the winter dance program & Christmas with sister. Bummer, allergies are a pain in the tail! Mom fortunately has none but both her brothers have seasonal allergies, grass, pollen whatever. And her mother complains of the same now but she has been a hypochondriac her whole life. Nothing new. Mom gave blood this morning and was going to go to a fundraiser for our shelter at a tavern in town but decided it was too cold to walk down there and she wasn't suppose to have any alcohol after giving blood. Plus she just donated a lot of supplies & money this past Wednesday. Besides, it is rather brisk! Too cold to walk 3/4 of a mile. So we took it easy today. Getting ready for the hockey game at 7 PM. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. Dean

good morning!
janet decided to play it lazy instead of getting up earlier and out walking longer distances, she stayed in bed finished read-ing a book she started earlier this or last week and got up dressed and then was out walking. we were clear when she walked, but clouded up and was all the way cloudy which is what we've been for the past 3 days or more and was windy 2 out of 3 of them. nat's all done now till the end of january when he starts up again as he's signed up for statistics and ergo econ-omics two more required courses as the other math college al-gebra he didn't want to get the dipstick of a professor he was due to get, but dropped it and got into one of 2 required english classes. so he's done with the history and things like that for that electives and now has the re-quired ones to take. he'll get there eventually, but wants to get up to 3 if he can possibly maybe as soon as next fall and spring, depends on if he can get the amount of aide he needs as it was cut almost 25% this year and likely will be cutback even more with the new congress/senate coming in next month as well as in this state too! janet and her younger sister blew up at each other as ruth thinks she's a big #$#$ and so it was a long time in coming as janet held her tongue and will from now on till it comes to another head as she's no longer speaking with her and said to all she was sorry, but it had to come out! she and ruth have really never gotten along as ruth was more or less babied which she did with her 2 girls and not 2 sons as well as her older sister cindy doing the same to her oldest son, but not the younger, hence janet only gets along with cindy's youngest son and ruth's oldest son, the others forget it as well as her! she gets along okay if she holds her tongue with her older sister. they all call her an oddball and to "grow up and get out of the house and stop sponging off of mom and dad (he's in a nursing home for good now) as she's paid them $80 a week to help them out and now is paying $100 a month to help with her father's nursing home costs which are $470 a month!!! that's what isn't covered by health insurance due to benefits dad gets from the fed. government and stop and shop where he worked for 141/2 years. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Dear Sakura,
Well, you did make it back tonight! I'm so glad to see your catmail. Concats to your Mom being officially finished with the term. So she's reading and packing. When are you all moving? Wait ... you mean they went out to dinner and left you at home hungre. I'll bet GGM couldn't get the food down fast enough!

I'm definitely a lovey! As soon as one or the other of my pawrents lies down in bed I am up on their chest, kissing (licking) their lips. Then comes the belly rubs for me. Finally I curl up by their neck and shoulder and go to sleep purring like a big machine. MOL! You couldn't possibly be that shameless!

Well, hope you and yours have had a fine Friday. Sweet dreams!

Good afternoon. Today's topic is: CONSTIPATION!!

Your cats litter box hasn't been disturbed all day. Your dogs pooper scooper is beginning to collect dust. Could your furry friends be irregular?? Dogs and cats rarely get constipated, but it can happen and when it does, here are a few tips to help them 'move'.

MOBILIZE WITH METAMUCIL: This OTC laxative contains Psyllium seeds husks, which pull water into the stool and help move things along. Ask your vet for the right dosage for your pets size. To make it more pleasing, try mixing it with a small portion of her fave canned food. Or just add it to her dry kibble....make sure you put plenty of fresh water nearby so the Metamucil doesn't congeal.

BRING ON THE BRAN: A sprinkle of oat bran every day can help keep constipation away.Depending on the size of your pet add 1/2 tsp to 2 TBSP of oat bran to his food daily.

PASS IT WITH PUMPKIN: Canned pumpkin is an excellent source of fiber that can make your pet regular again. The bonus is that both dogs and cats seem to enjoy it. Mix a TBSP or 2 in her food for several days or until she is regular again.

SEND IN THE COWS: You are always told never to give dogs/cats milk cause it causes diarrhea. But when you have a constipated pet, milk could be just what she needs. Give her 1/8 of a cup if she is small or 1/2 cup for larger breeds{Dogs}..when she is regular again, wean her off the milk gradually.

WET HIS WHISTLE: Water is essential to your pets health, always have plenty available. Try placing several bowls of fresh water all over your house. Water helps his digestive system stay in balance.

SAY NO TO BONES: Eating rib, chicken or other crunchy soft bones can cause things to get blocked inside...or your small animal may choke on one or cut their throat if they get cut on the splintered bone.

TAKE HER FOR A WALK {DOGS}: The longer you make her wait to go, the harder and drier the stools get and that can lead to problems quickly...give your dog plenty of potty time.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: If you notice your pet has not 'gone' in days and everything you tried is n't working, call your vet asap..he may have a blockage preventing him from passing the stool. Your Vet can check out the pet and give you instructions on the course of treatment.

TOMORROW: NIPPING & BITING!

Dear Sakura,
Answering your catmail from yesterday. Yes, my Daddy is working on their digital camera, but Mama is getting some really cool shots of me with the disposable one. Then just to get the photos developed! Then I will appear, instead of my beloved State's flag!

So your pet tech told on you? I must admit I will cuddle on anyone who lets me get on them. I am just a loving kitty.

You said you might not be on CC tonight. If not, then we'll meow on Caturday.

I left a vote on your page and hopes that you and yours have a fine Friday.

Hi Sakura and family!
My Mom received bad mews about her Uncle passing away. Thank God, when Mom visited GM in November, they all made a trip out to visit him in Palm Springs. It seems their visit was a good bye. My Mom will be going back to Palm Springs for the funeral, and then coming home- still not sure about the date yet. We’ll let you know.

My Mom went to Petco AND PetSmart today, looking for the purrfect cat toy for Callie (Trying to get Callie to EXERCISE! The vet said Callie needs to exercise more and lose a pound.). MOL! We are all having a blast with the toys. Now if we can only convince Callie to play with us!

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

QUEEN KELS KAT REMEDIES
ood afternoon kitties. Today's topic: COUGHING!!!

Coughing is Nature's way of saying goodbye to dust, bacteria, tickly hairs and all other itchy things that sail into our throats...but in animals, coughing is UNUSUAL. While it normal for Fluffy to hack a hairball, constant coughing is something to look into.

PROTECT HIM FROM THE ELEMENTS: Like people, pets will occasionally cough in response to pollen, dust or even fumes from household cleaners. Try keeping your pet in another room when you clean and dust. Open windows if you can for him to breathe in fresh air...in warmer months you can keep him outdoors while you clean.

OUT DOWN THOSE SMOKES: You already know that smoking isn't good for you. It can be even worse for Fido and Fluffy. So do not smoke around your pets.

UP THE HUMIDITY: When air is dry, mucus in the throat & airways gets thick and sticky, signalling the body to cough. Take your pet in the bathroom when you shower and let him breathe in the moist air. Use a humidifier or a vaporizer in your home and it will help reduce the dryness in the air.

STOP IT AT THE SOURCE: If your pet is coughing more than once an hour, he can probably benefit from a cough suppressant. Use a product containing the active ingredient dextromethorphan, such as Robitussin Maximum Strength Cough Syrup. Ask your vet for the right does for your pet.NEVER give pets cough syrup containing aspirin or acetaminophen, which is dangerous to pets.

SLIP IT DOWN: If the cough syrup comes in a liquid form, tip the animals head up, pull the loose skin up from the mouth and make a funnel, then spoon in the proper amount.

TRY ANOTHER OTC: When coughing is caused by hay fever, giving an OTC like Benedryl can reduce the irritation..ask your vet for the proper amount to give your pet.

KEEP HIM TRIM: Weight is often a significant factor in older pets. Getting a few pound off of them will stop the coughing.

KEEP HER CALM: Stressful situations can trigger cough attacks. So when your pets symptoms flare up, give her extra love and attention until things are calm.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: When pets start coughing, it is sometimes a warning sign that something serious is wrong, like pneumonia, asthma, bronchitis, or even a collapsed wind-pipe.

If Fido is coughing and also breathing rapidly or seems short of breath or has a swollen abdomen, get him to the Vet immediately.

Coughing is rare in cats, with the exception of expelling hairballs, so if Fluffy is coughing, take her to the Vet asap.

TOMORROW: CONSTIPATION!!

Hello Sakura
Yippeee, I’m finally home! Nana & Mommy brought me home late yesterday afternoon. My little right leg is shaved and last night it was very stiff from having the IV for 3 days. This morning I am walking much better. I ate well last night, but this morning I only ate a little bit. I have gone potty & I am drinking water. My beautiful blue eyes are bright & shiny. Those are good signs. I am very happy to be home. Sissy & Casper Todd both missed me. They had to sniff me last night, then they left me alone. I slept in my heated bed all night.

Dr. William emailed Mommy the profile photo of me actually eating while at the vet office yesterday morning. We usually never eat while at the vet office, so he captured proof that I really did eat. In the photo, you can see the IV drip in my right leg.

I was diagnosed with CRF in May 2013. Until now, we have been very fortunate to be able to treat it with my prescription diet which has kept my levels near normal for 1 ½ years. Mommy is very proactive concerning our health & well-being. She takes us regularly to visit Dr. William for our bloodwork & follow up exams. Plus she will do whatever is necessary to keep us as healthy as possible, for as long as possible.

I go back to visit Dr. William next Wednesday morning for another BUN & Creatinine bloodwork recheck. Dr. William has not yet established how often I will need sub-q fluids. We are aiming for once a week, but next week’s bloodwork will determine if that is possible. Then, we will know if my BUN & Creatinine levels increase in a week. With those results, we will go forward with the needed treatment. Paws crossed for good mews please!

Hugs,
Q MerryBelle & Mommy Angela

nat finished all but
the quotes on the exam and will have to do that today or this afternoon after 2pm when he usually gets things rolling. yester-day he spent the entire afternoon out with his cousin when he knew he was supposed to deliver gifts with janet at 2 and wasn't around to do it so it didn't get done, nothing new there if he can get time out he does and stays later than janet asks him to get back home by, oh well nothing one can do with that! did you know today is mommy's 87th birthday? sure enough is and both she and nat are sleeping in this morning after being up a bit earlier yesterday as she had a hearing check and her hearing aide was cleaned and adjusted. today's special birthday meal is vermont maple syrup baked beans and hot dogs something she asked janet a month ago to make so that's what it was till she changed her mind just a few days ago and wanted instead a pot roast for which janet's not got the $$ to get as they are just going on sale starting tomorrow. oh well she'll enjoy this meal anyways. we're celebrating on this or the other page today for her as well as the cc group on fb. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hey Sakura!
Good morning! Shouldn't be too hard to find an ugly Christmas sweater. There seem to be lots! But nice GM could fix one for the niece. Home made is best. Plus after she is finished with Christmas, maybe she can remove all the decorations and just have a nice black sweater? We have been very lucky here lately and getting temps in the 30's & 40's during the day. Not too extreme yet. But then we haven't really hit winter! Sunday. Sure hope the temps don't drop then. We are not complaining. It could stay like this through April, or warmer! MOL. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect day. Kitty Kisses. Dean

Dear Sakura,
Hi there! Well, my Mama has a digital camera that she can operate. It's just that there is something wrong with either the cord or the software making it impossible to upload photos from the camera to the hard drive. I sure hope my Daddy can fix it. This other way is expensive -- you have to buy the camera, then pay for processing.

You got a little stocking of you own today? With your name on it? That's so very nice and I wonder what is going to be in there? I guess you'll have to wait until Christmas!

Well, a little sun is better than no sun at all. I think it must be magical when it snows on Christmas Eve. I wish we'd get snow, but Phoenix never does. I mean, as far as I know. I'm only two years old. But my Mama says it hasn't snowed in the thirteen years she's been here.

I hope you and yours have a wonderful Wednesday.

Purrs & hugs,
Mason

Dear Sakura,
Answering your catmail of yesterday. Yes it was great seeing you all at the pawty! I've always loved pawties, especially at Christmas. And people, well you just have to use you senses and know who you can trust and who seems a bit "off".

Yes, I'll be promoting the Flag for a little while longer. My Mama had to buy a single-use camera with 27 shots on it. As soon as she takes them all up (especially of me) she will get it processed, then scan photos to her hard drive, thence to CC. So it might be a little while.

You might have a white Christmas? Oh, how lovely! Just as long as it doesn't stay too long.

I left a vote on your page and hope that you and yours had a wonderful Wednesday.

Purrs & hugs,
Mason

Hi Sakura and family!
We had a lot more rainfall than was predicted last night. My Mom, Callie and I went to check the creek this morning and the water level is back up to over half full. Hooray! We’re expecting another storm on Friday and sunshine for the weekend. The weatherman keeps reminding us the drought is nowhere close to being over. We would need a few more winters like this one. Oh well. But at least we’re on the right track!

My fursister Callie had a routine check-up appointment at the vet today. Callie is fine, but she gained a whole pound! Yikes! The vet told Mom to watch Callie’s weight and try to get Callie to move around more. Good luck with that Mom! Mom is determined to get that extra pound off of Callie before her next visit. I told Callie to drop and give me five push-ups! Of course Callie ignored me. MOL!

We have our paws crossed for your sweet Mom when she takes her finals!

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

-:¦:- If I could receive one gift from the universe at Christmas, let it be a cat’s love.-:¦:-

Mikey is LAUGHING at me, Sakura!
See, back in the spring when some of the northwest Moms got together, Angel Duchess Sassy's Mom gave my Mom a kitty figurine with a Santa hat on. It's maybe the size that I was at 4 months or so, so last night Mom got the bright idea to take it of the bookshelf and put it under the tree to help decorate for Christmas. Well, I was so suspicious of that strange new kitty ... I crept up slowly on that thing, all on edge and sniffing the whole way.

Mike calls me a goofy kid and laughs at me but I say you can't be too careful. It might have been real! And it might have gotten into MY food! -- Mojo

QUEEN KELS KAT REMEDIES
Today's topic: HIVES!

When your pets hind legs starts whirling like a propeller and you hear that 'thump, thump, thump' on the floor, you know there's something itchy going on.

TRY AN ANTIHISTAMINE: OTC medications like Benedryl block the effects of histamine, a body chemical that causes itching. Call your vet before administering it, he will recommend the proper dosage for your pet.

SCRATCH THE OINTMENTS: While topical medications like calamine or hydrocortisone cream can help relieve itching, they are not effective on pets and the animals will usually lick it off.

HANDS OFF: Rare is the cat or dog that won't appreciate your giving him an assertive scratch. In the case of hives, however, scratching only makes the itching worse, so keep your hands to yourself and do not scratch your pet.

TEST THINGS AROUND YOUR HOME: Pets can be allergic to everyday house-hold products, like soaps, shampoo, cleaning products, etc, or even to your deodorant. If you notice your pet itching after using something, try another product..this can take time, so you will have to be patient.

TRY DIFFERENT DIETS: Some pets are allergic to ingredients in pet foods. Try different formulas until you find one he can eat without an allergic reaction. You can also get creative and make your own. Cats especially like rabbit meat and cooked rice.

Your vet may also recommend a commercially prepared food made especially for allergic pets and they come in different varieties.

TOMORROW: COUGHING!!!

Hey Sakura!
Glad your Vet visit went well with the fluids & pawdicure. I am not a hisser either. In fact Mom never heard me hiss until Legend hissed at me & I hissed back! That only ever happened about 2 or 3 times. Yes the Christmas pawty was fun. Mom won't have to buy us anything for Christmas since we had got so many gifts in the mail from Mom's friends! We got more than we can play with. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses./ Dean

☃ Only 8 days left until Christmas ☃
Hi Sakura,

I hope Fluffinella doesn't get too upset with me but I'm taking over the family blogging for the rest of the month. She'll be doing the special celebration visits, but I wanted to make sure to sprinkle all of our beloved CC furiends with my special golden angel dust to wrap up the year. Hmmm...I hear a little hiss from Fluffers but she loves me so she'll get over it...MOL!

FYI-Anyone that's requesting mom Jane's home address is getting it by email instead of here on CC to maintain more privacy for her. I know that many of you already have it but if you don't just leave me a blog on my page & mom will make sure she has your email so she can send it.

Now on to what we've been up to. The angels have been busy decorating for Christmas & making frequent trips to earth to spread joy, happiness & good-will to as many kitties & humans as possible. Our newest CC angels are settling in nicely & are doing well in their flying lessons & dust collecting runs. Soon they'll all be 'let loose' to fly on their own so if you haven't felt them yet, you soon will!

I've been watching mom making Christmas cookies, getting presents ready to wrap & addressing Christmas cards. We also took a little time off on Monday night to attend young sis' choir concert. It was a packed house with standing room only if you arrived late. Sis & the concert choir performed, as well as another high school choir (they do road trips to perform), the junior high, & also 4th graders. Their finale was a beautiful rendition of Silent Night by all of the kids as they lined the stage & aisles of the auditorium. It was so touching that all of the angels there that night were crying tears of joy as they flew from child to child to sprinkle them with angel dust. We saw a few pawents & grandpawents getting teary eyed too so it was the purrfect way to end an already pawsome night.
Well got to fly for now so mom can wrap some presents while the kids are at school. I'll meow at you again on Friday.

Purrs of love,
Angel K Zaboo & NICE Crew

Hello Sakura
             
Thank you for your prayers & sweet Happy Adoptiversary wishes. I have good mews to share today! Dr. William called Mommy this morning to report that my levels have decreased even more after the IV fluids for 2 days. My BUN = 38 and Creat = 2.5. He wants me to finish this bag of fluids today, so Nana & Mommy will pick me up this afternoon.

I will visit Dr. William next week for another bloodwork recheck and sub-q fluids. Our goal right now is for me to receive sub-q fluids once a week. We hope & pray that plan works out. We will find out more next week.

Thanks again for your continued prayers. James 5:16 says “The intense prayer of the righteous is very powerful.” Amen to that!

Hugs,
Q MerryBelle & Mommy Angela
             

Come visit me, ♥ K Casper Todd ♥, ♥ Q MerryBelle ♥ (with my IV fluids) & ♥ Q Sissy ♥.

we'll be happy if it stays green for a change of pace, sick and tired of getting feet of snow when it does come usually all comes at once. janet's already missed one day last tuesday due to the weather as her boss figured she might call in and she did indeed! it's raining out there now, and due to stay between the mid to upper 30s to lower to mid 40s so for us that's warm! what a way for fall to go out and then a sinker or sinker in reverse to all snow to welcome old man winter into a new season. janet's completely DONE with everything as she had a bucket list and odds and ends to get tied up and finished that yesterday all of it! nat still hasn't finished his final still has loose ends to tie up,but took a break all day from it when he could've finished it! gunfire last minute stuff as usual! oh well, no use in telling him to do it, he just doesn't see the need to do it till it's due on thursday! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Sakura and family!
The sun was shining in the afternoon, but rain is expected tonight. My Dad had an appointment this morning with the surgeon who fixed his broken ankle over a year ago. After x-rays and a check up, Dad’s ankle has healed fine! He just needs to keep exercising his ankle- furever! I told Dad, “No Pain, No Gain!” MOL! As long as it doesn’t affect me!

My sister Callie has a check-up visit to the vet tomorrow. We’ll try to paw by in the evening.

We are praying for Queen Duchess and Queen MerryBelle to feel better, along with so many of our very dear furiends.

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

The Christmas Gift of Knowing You =^.^=
~~~~~
The Christmas season fills our hearts with joy;
Bright, happy days bring special kinds of pleasure.
We're wrapped in the excitement of it all,
The sights, the sounds, the smells, the tastes we treasure.

Yet when we have some quiet time to mew
About our finest blessings all year through,
We focus on our family and our furiends,
And appreciate the gift of knowing you!
