How We Met

We found Rusty when he was 10 years old, during the remnants of Hurricane Charley. My mom passed away on 10/17/12 and Rusty joined her one month later. We miss them both so much!

Hi Angel Rusty
Since we aren’t sure how much longer Cat Channel will be around, we decided to go ahead and leave our goodbye blog today, although we will remain active until the very end. We joined CC in November 2006 when Casper Todd was only a few months old. Caturday he will celebrate his 8th birthday. Where did the time go?

We have so many special memories of CC, the most important of which is the many furiends we have made during these 7+ years. Way back in 2009 when Casper Todd was so very sick with feline demodicosis, the outpouring of love & support from our CC family overwhelmed us and helped me cope during that horrible time. It’s that sense of community that we will miss the most, pulling together when one of our furiends is sick or has crossed the Bridge, and also celebrating the happy times.

The hardest part of any furiendship is when it's time to say goodbye. As much as we might like things to stay the same, change is an inevitable part of life. Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. Every story has an end, but in life every end is just a new beginning.

There are many tools available with which we can continue to communicate, but even without these tools there is a secret that only real furiends know, and it is this - All the mountains and valleys in the world cannot separate furiends whose hearts are as one.

Until we meet again on another site, remember that the best things in life are the people we love, the places we’ve been, and the memories we’ve made along the way. Let’s not cry because CC is over, let’s smile because it happened.

Your Furever Furiends,
The Awesome Pawsome Threesome™ & Mommy Angela

Due to a change in website platforms, a necessary step to enhance and update the CAT FANCY magazine website, it will no longer be possible to host Club Cat. Starting Jan. 1, 2014, Club Cat will close and members will no longer be able to accrue points. Members with sufficient reward points have until Jan. 10, 2014, to redeem their points for any of the cat products currently available in the Club Cat Rewards Catalog. On Jan. 15, 2014, Club Cat members with 25 reward points or higher will be automatically entered into a raffle to win special prizes. Raffle prize winners will be notified after Jan. 31, 2014. Points for the final Cat of the Day will be awarded on Jan. 1, 2014. New programs similar to Cat of the Day will be announced with the launch of the new website, so look for further announcements. Thank you to everyone who joined Club Cat! 01/31/2014 12:00.00 AM

2/12/13 Happy Second Tuesday of February! +17
King Barney here--- time is going so quickly here and our friend JosieMae #193862 is doing so well on her Catpaign trail for Queen of March. Do keep sending her encouraging meows, as we well know it is not as easy on the trail as it looks.

The weather here at the castle is cold, but we did not get as much snow as we thought. It was heavy and wet though and hard to shovel. Good for ice sculpture, however, and the prep for Thursday's carnival is coming along beautifully. The Carnival will be on all day Thursday, but, if kitties like, we can do live some live blogging between 6:30-- 8:00 Central time. You have to adjust the hours for your area. Thursday's blog will list all the activities and if you have have suggestions, please let us know.

Well, just enough time for a short story for today. This one is about another kitten named Tigger too. This kitten was rescued some years back by a Salvation Army Chaplain, who worked at a homeless shelter in our city. He called the rescue's hotline late one night, with the story of a tiny orange kitten he had found in a snowdrift. The kitten's ears were bloody and itching something fierce, but otherwise he seemed ok, just cold and hungry--- very hungry. The kitten had the worst case of ear mites mom had ever seen. Anyway, the chaplain was attached to the kitten, but couldn't afford a veterinarian. Mom had ear medications at home, but knew the kitten really needed to be seen by a doctor, so she took it on a temporary basis. The chaplain was in the process of moving and promised to call back in a few days.

Again, we must cut this story short and finish on Thursday. Do apologize for leaving you hanging. Mom also promised to hunt for pictures of the two Tiggers and post them on the Daily Inspiration page, but we have to find the charger for our camera. Will be sure to do that as soon as we are able. Have a Super Tuesday and we will see you on Valentine's Thursday! King Barney

2/7/13 Finally on CC --- Happy Thursday!
King Barney here, I hope. We will see when I finish this blog and hope I can at least post it to this page and on the CMR. Will do as much delivery as CC allows. We take it that everyone has been having problems too. Other than last night and today, everything has been going well around the castle. Mom's left knee is hurting, so she is trying to rest it today.

Well today's story is a rather short one about mom's first kitten, not counting college days. It was about a year after she began living at home with Gmeow, just before A.Pasha came into the picture. Her mom's cousin Katie and her husband lived just outside a small town in Minnesota on 80 acres of wooded land. They called their home the Tall House in the Woods and it was one of mom's favorite places to visit. Katie loved cats and rescued many during her lifetime. Katie is still alive, but has severe health issues and is no longer able to live in her home and is in a care facility.

Anyway, one day mom was visiting Katie and Katie had a momcat and litter of six kittens that had been abandoned in the woods. She knew they were abandoned, because the mom and kittens were all friendly and allowed her to handle them. Mom played with the kittens that day and when she was ready to leave, Katie brought her one of the kittens, a boy named Tigger and told mom to take him home. Mom protested that she couldn't. Gmeow didn't like cats and she couldn't. Well, Katie wasn't taking no for an answer. She gave mom a litter box and litter, a kitty bed and bowls, so the kitten went home with mom. Gmeow wasn't happy, but mom promised to keep the kitten in her room and kept her promise for sometime--- a few months anyway.

Well, today's story is not merely about how mom got her first kitten, but also about Tigger's first best friend. You will remember that at this time, mom did not have any other pets, so Tigger was very special to her. If she knew all the dangers of cats going outside that she does now, this friendship might never have happened. Anyway, Tigger was in the backyard and mom went out to look for him. She heard him climbing around in a large pine tree and went to call him down. The tree had thick branches and mom stood right next to it, trying to figure out where Tigger was. Just then a head popped out, but it wasn't Tiggers--- it was a grey squirrel! Then, another head close behind--- Tigger! Mom quickly went to rescue Tigger, thinking the squirrel was after him. She took him inside to safety. Well, that might have been the end of the story, but the next day mom heard scratching on the screen door--- The grey squirrel was hanging on it, as if to ask it Tigger could come out to play! Tigger was at the door in a flash--- and wanted out to play with his friend.

Well, that is the story for today and now mom needs a bit of purr therapy after remembering that story and her very special Tigger cat. Remember to vote for Josiemae#193862, so she can be your Queen of March.

2/5/13 Wow! First Official Tuesday! +23 & snow!
Good Morning dear friends! Hard to believe my first Tuesday as King and I have been on the thrown for 5 days! Sure glad for that beautiful silken purple pillow I was given after my coronation--- highly appreciated! Remember we have an open Castle policy---- come for brunch and stay as long as you like. Plenty of room and food. Steve--- we found a while truckload of cocoa, with mini marshmallows even. The kitchen staff put an order in for another to come next week and also restocked your and Zeus's TomCave.
Everyone feel free to read the menu up on the profile section of my purrsonal K.Barney page. Let me know anything you want to add.

Business taken care of, everyone asked us to continue our stories, so we certainly will. Thought we would start start off with a couple more Pasha tales. The one for today is about Pasha and mom's G'meow. Now Gmeow wasn't a catlover, but she did have a relationship with Pasha and he with her. Pasha loved Gmeow and would do anything for her. He always sat with her during breakfast and while mom was busy doing other things, like getting ready for work, she would hear Gmeow say, "Now you're not getting anymore!" So if Gmeow didn't like cats, why was she always conversing with Pasha and not giving him anymore of things? Mom finally caught Gmeow giving him the last of her Cherrios and milk. She asked Gmeow,"If you don't care for cats, why are you giving him that?" Gmeow--- "So he will go away." As we said, he always had breakfast with Gmeow!

Pasha was very intelligent. One night he woke mom out of a sound sleep with a sharp bite to her nose! Ouch! Pasha! Why--- he ran in the direction of Gmeow's room. He came back to make sure mom was up and coming with him. Then mom heard Gmeow calling--- she had fallen on the floor. Mom quickly checked. Gmeow actually was ok, but scared. She probably wasn't fully awake when she tried to get up. Nothing was broke and she went back to bed. Had it not been for Pasha, however, she might have been on the floor all night, because she was scared she had broke something and wouldn't move without help. It was cold that night and there could have been more serious consequences. Mom called the doctor the next day, but Gmeow was fine and he told mom just to make sure she stayed away from the stairs at night. Of course, Gmeow still didn't believe Pasha had got mom up, but mom knew the truth and that is what counted. Pasha was a very smart cat!

Well, that is it for today. Please remember to vote for Josiemae #193862, your COTM/future Queen of March. Now Gmeow's Birthday was March 8, 1888. She would have been 125 this year! She did live to 101yrs old.

Love K.Barney and family, mom Judi too.

2/2/13 Thank You--- Happy Caturday! King Barney
A very good morning dear Furrends of the CC Kingdom! Wow! Day two! Yesterday we all worked out paws to the bone moving in and want to thank all the kitties, who celebrated with us at the coronation and ball afterward and helped with the move yesterday. We could not have done it without you. Thank you Steve for rescuing Zeus from the storage shed out back--- he was mumbling something about looking for a port-a-potty. Thank everyone for all the donations to storm victim kitties and families. Most have already been delivered, but we shall keep the room available for any donations for those, who may need emergency supplies ongoing. Donations may also be brought directly to Julius Steven's page, as it is his original idea, for which we are all grateful.

Molly wants to thank Chyna, Sandy, Ana, Haley as volunteer chefs and all the kitties helping stock and help out in the royal kitchen, so we can have drop in dining for any kitties in need or just needing a place to warm their paws a bit and chat with furrends,

Our official blogs will be Tuesday and Thursday, with other days allowing us time for more purrsonal replies and time for mom to get a bit of rest! Several kitties have asked if we will continue our rescue stories. That is fine with us, if that is what you want--- there are many more to tell! We want to remind everyone we are planning an ice carnival for Valentine's day and hope you will all contribute to the planning.

Have a Super Caturday all. Up to +1 here at the Winter Ice Palace--- see the picture on the bottom of K.Barney's page #74382. Today is an adoption day for mom and Zeus. While we are not sure if we wish them luck, do wish luck to all the other kitties and dogs at the event. Will keep you posted. Love to all, K.Barney and family.

Remember to vote Josiemae #193862 everyday so she will be your Queen of March!

1/13/13 Second Sunday!
Barney here--- a hard morning to get mom and even the dogs up. Only 3 degrees out! Hefty and I curled up with mom last night and Zeus, Molly and Andy curled up in the cat beds in the spare room, Zeus's room. Mom shut Zeus in there, because he was being pesty and Molly and Andy opted to go in with him.

Several of you asked to know a little more about Lynne and her cats, all of whom have since passed over the Bridge several years back, including Lynne. Lynne passed suddenly about 7 years ago from Cancer. During her life, she had done many things, including being a Science Fiction writer and, for the most part, writing reviews of Science Fiction books. While living with mom she was semi-retired and writing book reviews for a library publication, "What Do I Read Next."

Concerning the cats, George was a beautiful black LH and Felecia's first husband. Reggie was her second husband and the father of Baby, or Kelly, as she was later known. Felicia was Siamese, Reggie a very bright orange, and Baby/Kelly was a dark tortie. George and Reggie were neutered when they arrived, but mom made sure Baby/Kelly and Felicia were spayed within a week of their arrival. After coming to mom, the cats lived long, indoor lives and passed from all age related causes. Only Felicia out-lived Lynne and became a good friend of Pasha and Agatha. Felicia was also very attached to mom and mom to her.

Well, that is the end of that story, unless you have more questions. A rather short blog today, but tomorrow I am starting some stories of our current family, including Zeus, who will be running for COTD!

Have a Super Second Sunday of January! Say that 30 times as fast as you can and your tongue may be twisted around your eye-tooth, so you can't see what you are saying! Love you, Barney and the whole family!

1/12/13 Happy Caterday to all!
Barney here again and how I do love that Caterday expression! Well, I have been doing a lot of thinking this week about the theme for our January Catpaign. We have talked a lot about mom and our rescue group. So far most of the kitties we've introduced have been past Angels. I do want to talk about the current kitties too, so I guess we can call our theme a self-portrait of our CC family.

While I can't remember exactly how long we have been on CC, it has been about four years. My first COTD was 2/26/09. Mom discovered CC a short time after the death of a good friend, who had been living with her for several years. The way mom met her was through another friend, who had known Lynne from childhood and knew mom from working together at the U. of MN. Lynne lost her apartment when her landlord was remodeling the building. She had four cats and needed to find someone to care for them until she found another place to live. Their mutual friend approached mom with the problem and asked mom if there was any way she could help. Mom already had several cats she was fostering and really was at her limit. She was living by herself in the house she inherited from her grandmother, who had died a year before. Finally she asked where Lynne would be living and the answer was that she did not know. Mom thought on the problem. It did not make sense for her to take more cats, but she did have room for another human, if she was sure they were a safe person to live with. Her friend assured mom she had known Lynne since childhood, so mom decided to take a chance. Mom decided the only way she would take the cats was if Lynne came with and cared for them. Lynne's male cats George and Reggie had been neutered, but her females Felicia and Baby (who was Felicia's baby) were not. Mom made an agreement with Lynne that she would help get low cost spays for the girls, but Lynne did need to agree to have the cats spayed, if they were to live with mom. She quickly agreed.

Well, tomorrow is Sunday, and Sunday we would like to keep as an open day for questions about anything you may want to know from the week before. Depending on the number of questions, we will try to answer all, but may have to save some for the coming week or for purrsonal blogs.

Hey Rusty!
Mom was just checking on some of the kitties we met when we first joined CC. You had joined way before us. Most we have just visited are no longer active. Hope you are doing well. Sure is hot. Mom has no A/C so is keeping things as cool as possible with five fans running. We wouldn't go in the bedroom when she had a window unit. It is not too bad inside. Hope all is well with you. Keep cool! Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect day. Kitty Kisses. Dean

Applause & Salute all mothers ... Hugs for moms
A "how much we're grateful" greeting for Moms, Grand-mothers and Great-grandmothers whose family sacrifices have changed lives.
(¯`'•. ¸.(¯`v´¯)¸. •'´¯)
•Mothers are the place where love emerges from the earth & happiness rings out like bells in honor our birth.
•Mothers are the sun that lights for life our inner sky, so we may know that we are loved & need not question why.
•Mothers are the moon that shines upon our black despair, so even when we weep, we know that someone's always there.
•Mothers hold their childrens' hands for a short while but their hearts forever.

"No language can express the power, and beauty, and heroism, and majesty of a mother's love. It shrinks not where man cowers, and grows stronger where man faints, and over wastes of worldly fortunes sends the radiance of its quenchless fidelity like a star." ~Edwin Hubbell Chapin
¦..(¯`v´¯)´´¯`•- °*”˜˜”*°(¯`v´¯)- ..¦
"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts." ~Washington Irving

GREETINGS TO ALL...
pawsing by to try and catch up on my blogs. Has surely been a busy past month. Mommie had a big 50th birthday on the 29th of March last month and we all gave her lots of goodies and made her whole month really special. I also had my 5th ADOPTIVERSARY as well on March 31st. I have been with this great family now for 5 years. I cant thank Mommie enough for giving me a permanant forever home when she did. Although I was content at the shelter in that big room where all of us pussy-cats were allowed to romp around and play, but I was dreaming of my forever home and Mommie when I heard a lovely person speak my name softly. As I woke up from my slumber in the rocking chair I was curled up in, I saw my MOMMIE!! Of course then she had her hair died RED!! AACCKK!! But I didnt care if it was purple as long as it was some one to take me forever home. Me and Mommie are just like peas and carrots as Forrest Gump would say. We just havent figured out yet which one is peas and which one is carrots. LOL!! Mommie is fascinated as well with this wonderful weather. For the first time since "buck was a calf" as Mommie keeps saying...whatever that means, that she has seen this type of weather this time of the year!! She said for the first time in over 20 years she actually had on SHORTS, a TANK TOP, and FLIP FLOPS on her birthday!! She said she usually has on jeans, socks, boots, a sweater and sitting by the fire!! She still not in good health but seems to be in good spirits. Her AVON sales still very very weak but she is enjoying it. She and Poppie have a wedding Anniversary coming up as well Friday April 6th. 27 years I think is what they were saying. Mommie says she and Poppie have their differences many times but so glad their love has never changed. Mommie says even though times are tough and things and situations are hard and unmanageable at times she wouldnt have it no other way. I know I often feel the same way about the both of them myself. Without them I dont know where I would even be right now. Well, I do hope that you all have a wonderful and glorious up and coming EASTER. I hope you are blessed with many wonderful treasures as I know I have already been and know I will even more. Love to you all.....

Incredibly lucky cat survives 19-floor plunge

"A veterinarian says acting like a flying squirrel may have saved a cat from serious injury. Cats splay their legs to slow their descent. Sugar the cat had no broken bones or cuts, just some bruising on her lungs after the 200 foot fall."

Happy Spring!!
•March 20, 1:14 A.M. EDT Spring begins!
•In 2012, spring will last until June 19.
•The Southern Hemisphere prepares for fall.
•On the first day of spring—the vernal equinox—day & night are each approximately 12 hours long; the only dates with equal daylight & darkness.
•The Sun crosses the celestial equator going northward; it rises exactly due east & sets exactly due west.
•The word equinox is derived from the Latin words meaning “equal night.”
•At the equinoxes, the tilt of Earth relative to the Sun is zero, which means that Earth’s axis neither points toward nor away from the Sun.

greetings to all...
catching up on my blogs. Mommie isn't doing too well at all lately. She keeps saying stuff like her life is trying to over run her and she needs to slow down and take it easier. She hasn't done well on AVON at all. She only gets 3 orders every time, herself, my human sis-furr and her sis-furr-in-law. Mommie has decided to put that on the back burner for awhile. She went this past Friday to Gainesville on some important matters. She is very angry and upset with her doctor here in town. She and Poppie, and me too all think that doctor is nothing but a QUACK because all he cared about during Mommie's recent visit last month was his "unpaid bill". Mommie and Poppie have been sending a monthly payment for the past five years or longer. Mommie not having no insurance or any thing of course with each visit it is going to go higher. But at least she and Poppie are paying. I don't understand and neither does Mommie. This made her and Poppie very angry and even yesterday when Mommie called the receptionist got very rude and hateful. I think she and Poppie are going to transfer their records even if it means having to drive a bit farther. Mommie also got her feelings hurt yesterday over on some place she calls FART-book. Some people didn't want her to post animal related stuff any more. Mommie deleted those people and said she got to thinking about some movie she and Poppie watched that was about proofing a fire or something like that, and some book that had something about "parasites". Mommie said she was beginning to understand that she was over obsessed with cats, animals and pets. She said that was her "parasites" and it was causing problems in her life. Well, I dont know so much about that. ME being a parasite?? Mommie said she was going to have to control all of that to some level of degree. She said she was not going to be on that book place much any more because over the past few years she has been on it has caused her nothing BUT problems and all. I just hope with warmer temps around now and beautiful weather that she can get her self back together. She has the big 50 birthday coming up at the end of the month too and we are all hoping she will get a much needed and major surprise for her special day. Mommie's luck just needs to change. She keeps singing that old Hee-Haw song too..."Gloom and dispair". I WISH she could sing "HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY" instead. Oh well, please keep her and all of us in your thoughts and purr-ayers.
Love---KiWi KaTT (The KEESTER)

PLEASE VOTE PRINCESS COTD SATURDAY MARCH 10th!
Hi my name is Princess! I have several nicknames including Tweet Tweet and Tweedlepunk! I like doing regular cat things such as annoying the dog, sun-bathing on sunny days, and playing with every type of toy! I also like to do odd things like taking baths and walking on a harness! I was adopted when I was 2 months old from a local shelter! I was found orphaned on the streets with an injury under my right eye and a crooked tail! I was put in a cage at the local shelter and stayed there for what seemed to be a long time! Then one day a lady came and she wanted a kitten! She looked at every cage and I was in the last one! She knew right away I was purrfect for her and I knew she was purrfect for me! We are now Best friends and she is the best mom a kitty could ever have! PLEASE VOTE FOR ME MARCH 10TH so I can be CC's COTD on March 11th! I would really appreciate any votes, as this will be my first COTD if I win!

Thanks have a Pawsome Day
Princess

Figgaro thanks all for the birthday wishes and coming to his birthday pawty. It means so much to him, his 10th birthday. Here's some information about him.

Mom got Figgaro when he was just a young adult kitty, around 2-3 years old. He has lived with us peacefully for over 7 years, and we love him very much. Figgaro and I are like brothers. We often lay close together. I couldn't imagine life without him.
