About Me

Active within 63 Days

Hi! My name is Sunny and Josie

I am Domestic Shorthair from san Diego, CA

Nicknames: Sunny: Sunny Bunny, Sunshine, Sunny Bear

Josie: Josie Posey, JoJo

Age: 9 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: Sunny has only 2 good legs, his back ones. His left front leg ends at the elbow, his right front leg is somewhat misshapen and has only part of a paw. But he never lets his handicap affect him. Sunny was voted COTD for 9/12/07.

My favorite tricks and treats are:

Where I hang out: Sunny loves his cat tree, especially the "tunnel" part. Josie loves the bedroom dresser next to the window, so she can keep an eye on the world

My favorite grubs: Sunny: Fancy Feast, and it MUST be in gravy. Josie likes Royal Canin 33. Neither of us like people food.

My pet peeves: Sunny hates the sound of aluminum foil. Josie just hates an empty dish!

What I love about my owners: She always puts us first.

My cat hobbies: We love to chase and ambush each other.

Pet motto: Josie: I'm not fat, I'm big-boned!

Sunny: Hey mom, look what I can do!

How We Met

Sunny and I found each other at the county shelter when I volunteered there. He was not in good shape at all and was destined for "The Green Mile" Although I had no intention at the time of adopting another cat, I couldn't turn my back on him. Our other kitty, Millie, was quite elderly and cantankerous but eventually, if begrudgingly, accepted him. Millie went to the Bridge in January of 2008 and we adopted Josie from PetSmart as a companion for him in April 2008. She immediately starting 'calling the shots' around here but Sunny absolutely adores her.

Hi Sunny and Josie,
Sorry it took me awhile to get back to you,but my brother Levi was sick for about a month,so mom went off line to be with him. He passed this month on the third and left a big hole in moms heart. He was her bottle baby. She raised him from two week of age,and he was only four. Hope all has been well with you,my friend! ~ Purrs,Bart

Dear Sunny and Josie,
You know you are missed right?
....Leaving a little poem to help brighten your day...I hope!

Anticipating Spring

Bart has lost his collar
In anticipation of spring.
For he can't catch the birdies
If they hear it's ding,ding,ding!

But mom will buy a new one
For the birdies to keep safe,
From the mighty hunter Bart
Who for them would lie in wait!
By Mom Sara

Hey,I just can't wait for spring to get 'bout you!? ~Purrs,Bart

Hi Sunny and Josie,
Thought I would start the New Year off with some 'little know' facts about the Peach State Cats! I hope you enjoy and I will start with myself...

BART~nicknamed Booger Boy-REASON: I got sick and nearly died shortly after mom adopted me. My little eyes stayed crusted shut with what mom called 'eye boogers',and she would bathe them open every morning while talking softly to me,calling me her Booger Boy....the name stuck,just like the eye crud!

SMUDGE~Will meow his fool head off for mom and dad to pet him,then keep j-u-s-t out of reach so they can't,leading then around the yard!

GROWLIE~Won't let anyone but mom pet him!

SAMSON~ADORES being petted! He had rather mom pet him than eat,and will even 'grab' moms hand if she pulls it away!

CHARLIE~ His shelter name was ARMANI,but even though it suited his good-looking tux,mom changed it because dad would never have remembered it!

DIXON~Has a very high-pitched meow! No one takes him serious when he tries to be aggressive! I mean,there he is,in his 'aggressive Tom' stance...back bowed,head down,legs stiff......then out comes this sound like air slowly released out of a balloon!!MOL! Dixon could make another kitty laugh to death!

Well,that's all for today,as there are so many of us! I will finish the rest of my sibs later in the week! Hope you have a very happy New Year! ~Purrs,Bart

"...And The Mouse Police Never Sleeps" by Jethro Tull

Muscled, black with steel-green eye
swishing through the rye grass
with thoughts of mouse-and-apple pie.
Tail balancing at half-mast.

...And the mouse police never sleeps ---
lying in the cherry tree.
Savage bed foot-warmer
Of purest feline ancestry.

Look out, little furry folk!
He's the all-night working cat.
Eats but one in every ten ---
leaves the others on the mat.

...And the mouse police never sleeps ---
waiting by the cellar door.
Window-box town crier;
birth and death registrar.

With claws that rake a furrow red ---
licensed to mutilate.
From warm milk on a lazy day
to dawn patrol on hungry hate.

...No, the mouse police never sleeps ---
climbing on the ivy.
Windy roof-top weathercock.
Warm-blooded night on a cold tile.

Hey Everybody!
Remember me? It's Rocky! And today is International Tongue Twister day! Hooray! Last time, I gave you the one about where she sits, remember? This time I actually have a tongue twister poem. Yes, there are such things! Ready? Here goes:

The Two-Toed Tree Toad

A tree-toad loved a she-toad
Who lived up in a tree.
He was a two-toed tree-toad,
But a three-toed toad was she.
The two-toed tree-toad tried to win
The three-toed she-toad's heart,
For the two-toed tree-toad loved the ground
That the three-toed tree-toad trod.
But the two-toed tree-toad tried in vain;
He couldn't please her whim.
From her tree-toad bower,
With her three-toed power,
The she-toad vetoed him.

Poor toad. :)

Hi Sunny and Josie,
Stopping in today with my Sunday blog and vote! What's mew with you? The mews here is that Samson tried to jump Growlie...twice! Mom got on to him,and picked Growlie up and took him to a safe spot,where she then took the oppurnity to examine his fur. The new food seems to be helping him,as new fur is growing back in his,er,bald spots! Mom finally gave in,and is giving us the yummy new food too,yah!......The enclosure kitties managed to knock over their three tower condo that dad made,and smashed a litter box in the process. Mom was just glad no one was injured! She got a new litter box,and threw the smashed one out today. She also did some cleaning in the enclosure,as well as painting today. Mom asked dad if he would make two cat boxes to hang up high in the enclosure. She got the idea from the Catswall design boxes. Dad said he would add it to his 'honey-do list',haha!....The inside cats are doing good! Ellie still loves mom's room,and Gypsy dad's! Gypsy is the only one who hisses at Allie Cat,who is a complete little love bug kitty! ......Oh,and mom told Dad that she needed to save some money and take ME to the vet~YIKES~mom still thinks I am too overweight,and the other outside cats are not,and we all eat the same thing. She wants to make sure nothing else is going on with me. Well,I dread the day I have to go,whenever it may be,'cause when mom gets a notion in her head,she usually follows through. I'll be claw biting untill then! Well,enough till next week!~Purrs and Hugs,Bart

Hello friends!
Today is "National Homeless Animals Day". I have posted a small selection of poems on my page, and here is a short one for you.

"Stray Cat" by Francis Witham

Oh, what unhappy twist of fate
Has brought you homeless to my gate?
The gate where once another stood
To beg for shelter, warmth, and food
For from that day I ceased to be
The master of my destiny.

While he, with purr and velvet paw
Became within my house the law.
He scratched the furniture and shed
And claimed the middle of my bed.

He ruled in arrogance and pride
And broke my heart the day he died.
So if you really think, oh Cat,
I'd willingly relive all that
Because you come forlorn and thin
Well...don't just stand there...Come on in!

Purrs. Rocky

Patient, Discreet, With no tales tell,
And as for keeping secrets
Few do it as well.

A carriage of Grace, An air of Dignity,
Assured and Proud, yet Playful
A thinker Independently.

Such are the qualities found in a cat.
Who among Humans can claim all of that?

Hi Sunny and Josie,
Bart say to tell you 'hello'...


A great big roach across the ceiling did come,
and up the curtain Andy did run!

A mid-air swipe and down it fell;
hit the floor running pell mell!

Andy and Ellie are on it in a flash,
but behind the waste can the roach did dash!

Round and round the cats did run,
chasing the roach and having SO much fun!

Under the rug it tried to escape,
little did it know that was a mistake!

Four taloned paws under the rug did search,
and the 'poor' little roach went plumb berserk!

A valiant run it made for the door,
but a quick paw-swipe pinned it flat to the floor!

A leap,a toss,a flip in the air...
~then CRUNCH!
It's ended-right then and there!

I hope you enjoyed our morning adventure,and hope you have many too!~Hugs,Andy and Ellie

The doorbell just rang and this very nice man gave Mommy a bag full of Chinese food. Fuzz is circling the bag and getting ready to pounce. "This could be exciting - so stay alert," Fuzz says with his famous Cheshire grin. My nose is twitching and smells chicken, shrimp, and something else I can't decipher.

We have reached day 26 of my campaign ...
Today I am posting this myself, BUT Mom’s computer will not be available to her until late on Thursday. Dear furriend Sassy and her mom have agreed to post my blog on the CMR page #46883 on Mon – Wed. On Thursday, I am being crowned in absentia, but will arrive later that day to visit and celebrate with you. Hang in there … I’ll be back.

Check each day at the bottom of my page for pics, even during my reign. This adventure is not ending; it’s only just begun. You’ll see.

Probably the most recognizable of the primates is the


Probably the most intelligent animal, next to man, the chimpanzee manifests many parallels to human behavior. Although its senses are similar to ours, it probably has a keener sense of smell. Other than man, the chimpanzee is one of the only animals that make and use tools. For example, it peels the bark from sticks and then uses those bare sticks to probe tree holds for insects. A chimpanzee uses far more facial and body gestures and a wider range of sounds than any animal other than man.

Usually in a slouch, rarely holding itself upright, a chimpanzee walks on its knuckles while moving about mainly on the ground, although it also climbs. A chimpanzee spends many hours of each day foraging for food, mainly ripe fruit and young leaves. It may eat as many as two dozen different types of plants in a single day.

A newborn chimpanzee is totally dependent on its mother. When a few days old it clings to the front of its mother’s body, by six months it rides on her back and by four years is walking alongside. It will then remain close to its mother for up to eight years. Chimpanzees live in communities ranging in size from about a dozen to over one hundred.

Like other arboreal monkeys, the chimpanzee is very noisy, issuing hoots and high-pitched screams at the slightest provocation.

See a picture of this animal at the bottom of my page. *** The next three animal pics will be on my page also. I think you are all smart enough to figure which is which.

Wow! It's already Campaign Day 25 ...
Yet another primate is the


The name orangutan means “man of the forest” in Malay. They can be found in the rain forest of northern Borneo.

This peaceful, gentle, long-haired primate lives in the rainy jungles of Borneo and Sumatra. Clumsy when moving on the ground, it spends most of its time high up in the trees. At night it sleeps on little platforms which it builds from twigs and branches, constructing a new one each night. In wet or cold weather the orangutan covers itself with leaves. A voracious eater, it will sometimes spend an entire day feasting upon the fruit of a single tree. Fruit makes up more than half of its diet but it will also eat bark, leaves, eggs and young birds.

The most arboreal of all the apes, the orangutan has especially long, flexible fingers that help it to hang and swing in the trees. The orangutan has wonderful ability to use its facial muscles, particularly its big lips.

Long arms, hook-shaped hands and feet, and a heavy body enable an orangutan to swing superbly from tree to tree and walk on the branches. A very young orangutan rides about clinging to its mother’s chest but juveniles often play and romp together. Adults are quite solitary and, other than during infrequent mating encounters, an orangutan maintains and protects its own independent home range. Even when several adults are eating at the same food source there is little interaction among them. An adult male is particularly jealous of his territory and, when encroachment does occur, will become quite aggressive and noisy, shaking branches and emitting long, loud howls.

See a picture of this animal at the bottom of my page.

We've reached day 24 of my campaign ...
We’re staying big. Here is the

Indian Rhinoceros
Rhinoceros unicornia

The Indian rhinoceros lives primarily in northern India and Nepal. These massive beasts have some noticeable physical differences from their African relatives. Their segmented hide looks like a formidable coat of natural body armor. It functions a bit like one also: Flexible skin between the thicker hide "plates" allows them to shift as the rhinoceros moves.

As their Latin name Rhinoceros unicornis suggests, Indian rhinos have only one horn.

Like other rhinos, these animals have sharp hearing and a keen sense of smell. They may find one another by following the trail of scent each enormous animal leaves behind it on the landscape. An Indian rhino can move very quickly when aroused. Their charges have been clocked at 30 miles (48 kilometers) an hour. Despite their bulk, they are nimble and can jump or change direction quickly.

The Indian rhino is a grazer that travels established, tunnel-like paths through its tall-grass habitat. It grasps tall grasses with its prehensile (gripping) lip. In addition to grass, rhinos eat fruit, leaves, and sometimes farm crops. They are often around water and sometimes consume aquatic plants. These animals forage in the cooler temps of morning and afternoon to avoid exerting themselves in the debilitating midday heat. When the sun is high, they often wallow or submerge themselves in water.

The prominent horn for which these rhinos are so well known has also been their downfall. Many animals have been killed for this hard, hair-like growth, which is revered for medicinal use in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. The horn is also valued in North Africa and the Middle East as an ornamental dagger handle. There are only about 2,000 Indian rhinos left in the wild.

We're all doing well. Dad's home on vacation this week so it's been busier but fun. It's been a mild winter here and in a few weeks Mom's sister will arrive for her annual Spring Florida time. She's from Michigan and they too have had a mild winter.

Our Ragdoll kitten comes in the middle of March. She's going to get spayed soon.

Many purrs

***Kitty's Bedtime Prayer***
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!

**Sweet Dreams**

We have reached day 22 of my campaign ...
By popular request, today we will learn about


These gregarious animals are often seen in groups, and several families may live together in a large community. Squirrel-sized meerkats are mongooses famed for their upright posture. They often stand on their rear legs and gaze alertly over the southern African plains where they live. Mothers can even nurse their young while standing. All adult meerkats—male and female—pitch in to help educate the young in hunting and survival techniques.

Meerkats (also called suricates) work together in numbers. A few will typically serve as lookouts, watching the skies for birds of prey, such as hawks and eagles, that can snatch them from the ground. A sharp, shrill call is the signal for all to take cover. While a few individuals guard the group, the rest busy themselves foraging for the foods that make up their varied diet. Meerkats will eat insects, lizards, birds, and fruit. When hunting small game, they work together and communicate with purring sounds. Meerkats are good hunters and are sometimes tamed for use as rodent-catchers.

Meerkat groups utilize several different burrows and move from one to another. Each burrow is an extensive tunnel-and-room system that remains cool even under the broiling African sun. Females give birth to two to four young each year in one of the group's burrows. Fathers and siblings help to raise meerkat young, teaching them to play and forage and alerting them to the ever present danger from above. Young meerkats are so fearful of predatory birds that even airplanes will send them diving for cover.

Hey Sunny & Josie!
Great to hear from you! Sorry to hear Mom was so sick with the flu that she sounded like she was coughing up hairballs! Bummer! Hope she feels much better now. Was chilly today and got pretty windy too which made it seem even colder. But in a couple days it will be up to 60*! Can't wait. We have had enough winter & cold weather. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. Anderson

This is day 21 of my campaign ...
Emperor Penguins

Emperors are the largest of all penguins—an average bird stands some 45 inches (115 centimeters) tall. These flightless animals live on the Antarctic ice and in the frigid surrounding waters.

Penguins employ physiological adaptations and cooperative behaviors in order to deal with an incredibly harsh environment, where wind chills can reach -76°F (-60°C).

They huddle together to escape wind and conserve warmth. Individuals take turns moving to the group's protected and relatively toasty interior. Once a penguin has warmed a bit it will move to the perimeter of the group so that others can enjoy protection from the icy elements.

Emperor penguins spend the long winter on the open ice—and even breed during this harsh season. Females lay a single egg and then promptly leave it behind. They undertake an extended hunting trip that lasts some two months! Depending on the extent of the ice pack, females may need to travel some 50 miles (80 kilometers) just to reach the open ocean, where they will feed on fish, squid, and krill. At sea, emperor penguins can dive to 1,850 feet (565 meters)—deeper than any other bird—and stay under for more than 20 minutes.

Male emperors keep the newly laid eggs warm, but they do not sit on them, as many other birds do. Males stand and protect their eggs from the elements by balancing them on their feet and covering them with feathered skin known as a brood pouch. During this two-month bout of babysitting the males eat nothing and are at the mercy of the Antarctic elements.

When female penguins return to the breeding site, they bring a belly full of food that they regurgitate for the newly hatched chicks. Meanwhile, their duty done, male emperors take to the sea in search of food for themselves.

Mothers care for their young chicks and protect them with the warmth of their own brood pouches. Outside of this warm cocoon, a chick could die in just a few minutes. In December, Antarctic summer, the pack ice begins to break up and open water appears near the breeding site, just as young emperor penguins are ready to swim and fish on their own.

Check the bottom of my page to see a photo of these animals.
