How We Met

I was rescued from a trash dumpster. My owner came in and adopted me.Adopted on April 17, 2002. PLEASE REMEMBER KIITIES IN SHLETERS ACROSS THE WORLD::
SECOND HAND CAT

Give us a chance who are not brand new
Who would love a home with someone like you
We may have been around a bit
Received many a blow and many a kick

Starved and neglected most of our days
Yet we are forgiving anyways
But now's our chance to start anew
A home with love that we never knew

So before a kitten you're tempted to pick
Give us a look, but not too quick
Look at the character in our face
And our bodies, still full of grace

Just think of us, day after day
Watching people look and walk away
But say the word 'yes' and we will know
Our bags are packed and we're ready to go.

"Mikey's Meow-velous Mothers" - May 28
Yesterday we met two Thomases, today let me introduce you to two Angels. One is black, one is white, one is a friend from CC and the other we have only met thorough the Animal Rescue Site. Each of them found that special person to be an Angel to them!

Angel #1: ANGEL BOOBOO #216193 was just a tiny little kitten, four weeks old, when she crossed paths with some very mean and uncaring children who tossed her in the air, poked her and then left her for dead. Luckily, along came a kind man who was amazed to find the little bundle still alive. He gathered her up, took her home, and cleaned her up. He and his wife tried to nurse her back to health, and it looked like she was going to recover. She started to put on weight, purr, and to enjoy cuddling and climbing on her new human friends. But a long life together was not to be, and after only two weeks in her loving new home Angel BooBoo crossed the Rainbow Bridge in the arms of her loving human “Angel”.

Angel # 2: One day a woman was walking along the sidewalk and noticed a little white kitten following her. She picked it up and took it back to the house it seemed to belong to, where there were a few other little white kittens in the yard. As she walked away, she noticed the kitten following her again. After bringing the little furrball back home for the fourth time, she knocked on the door and tried to hand the persistent kitten to the woman who answered. To her shock, she was told she might as well take the kitten home, because they had plans to drown the unwanted litter!

Well, she did not have to be told twice. She took the little kitten home and called the SPCA to rescue the others. The little white kitten was given the name ANGEL not only because of his colour, but because he brought help to his brothers and sisters and enabled them all to find forever homes.

** In some homes, evergreen trees are decorated with cotton to make them look like the snow found on the trees in the forests of the Northern Hemisphere.
** Houses are decorated in red and white garlands and Christmases boots are put on the doorstep.
** The Christmas tree is decorated with colored lights and ornaments.
** It is warm enough in Argentina to have Christmas dinner outside in the garden. For Christmas dinner we have pig or a roast chicken and a large variety of side dishes.
** On January 5th, children in Argentina place their shoes underneath the Christmas tree or beside their beds. They leave hay and water outside the house for the horses of the three kings, who will bring them their gifts on their way to the Christ Child in Bethlehem.

CHRISTMAS IN SUMMER (Argentinean Song)

My Christmas is stuck in summer
no snow or pine gives lights
Christmas with heat goes hand in hand
and the sweet smell of cider and fresh bread

Peace to all men,
Peace on Earth
Peace on my hot land
and where it snows too...

With lots of love,
from your friends always,

((¯`v´¯))MEWS FROM THE CASTLE! ((¯`v´¯))
Sir Ernie, Sir Steve and Sir Kit arrived to the Castle carrying a huge Christmas tree. Sir Lestat, Sir Mo and Sir Eynnie followed them bringing three enormous boxes full of colorful ornaments.
Doodie and I went to meet them at the main gate; the fairy kitties came with us. The pine tree was marvelous and beautiful. I noticed it had a great smell too.
-This is the nicest tree we found; your Majesty. –Said Mo.
The fairy kitties started to purr. –It´s purrrrrrfect!! –Said Beacon. –Let´s call all the cats to help us to set it up.
Lily & Zoe were riding Viento and Nieve and they were the first fur friends to arrive. We took the tree to the Royal Ballroom and started to decorate it.
Mama, Angel Loki & Angel Marley came with the kittens. The little ones were very excited.
-Wow!! This pine tree is great!! – Said Shadowfoot. –How will we ever reach the top of it to put the star there? –Asked Miles.
Blackberry danced around his head and the tiny bells in her collar made a beautiful sound. –We´re going to put the star on the top of the tree. –She answered. –Flying.
Mimi and Sassy Su brought the catnip ornaments they did yesterday and Strudel decorated the galleries with lovely garlands of paper poinsettias. I was so happy.
Hot Rod entered the room with Toby and Malachi; they were surprised to see the pine and the garlands. They were bringing a couple of gifts and they put them under the tree.
Finally, Beacon & Blackberry took the star and placed it on the top of our Christmas tree.
Nobody said a word. We just looked at the tree and holded each other´s paw making a circle around the tree. And the Angels stayed close. And everything was joy and happiness.

♥Happy Thanksgiving Dear Friends!!♥
It´s a wonderful Wednesday at the Royal Estancia and all the kitties are very excited about the first Polo Game. An amphitheater has been installed outside. Every kitty wants a seat in the front rows to see the Dream Team playing.
King Mickey and I take a seat at the Royal Box.The game is about to start. The players arrive riding their beautiful horses.
The Polo has its origin in the Sagola Kangjei practiced in India about 300 BC.To play polo requires two teams of four riders comprising: two front, middle, and an advocate, which using mallets or sticks with long flexible handles, play the game riding on ponies.
Sir Winston J takes the microphone–Let´s welcome to Team One! – He says. Welcome Angel Marley, Angel Red, Sammy & Max!!
-And now dear friends, let´s welcome Team Two... Here come Prince Simba, Princess Sally, Prince Charlie & Angel Lucy!!
The kitties encourage their favourite teams. The game starts. Simba is amazed to see how fast his friends have learnt to play Polo! Sammy´s horse is strong and moves really fast; here he comes followed by Angel Marley. The ball passes like a flash in front of Princess Sally and Angel Red scores a goal.
-Woo hoo!! – Max shouts. The kitties go crazy. The game is exciting. The first round is over. Sammy, Max, Angel Red & Angel Marley will take a rest.
Sir Winston J announces the entrance of Team Three: -Let´s welcome to our friends Ernie, Pete, Vika & Miss Millie!!
Round two starts.The ball runs through the grass; it´s a little one and very elusive; Sally passes it to Simba and Charlie scores a goal.
Millie moves like a ray of light with her pinto horse. A.Lucy follows the ball with her blue eyes and... Vika scores another goal. Ernie is purring... He loves the game!!
Sir Oscar Jon, the referee, watches his clock and tells everybody the second round is over. –One more round to define this game.
Simba and his horse need a break. Mrs.Pucca takes his place.
-Let´s welcome Team four to the field! – Winston says. –Here come Zaboo,Thunderfoot, Mike & Nutty Buddy!!The kitties cheer the players. Zaboo makes his move; the ball passes close to Charlie, he hits it with his stick and passes it to Pucca. Mike sees it and comes riding like the wind in his black horse- Be careful, señorita. – He says toPucca as he gets the ball for his team. Pucca is surprised, Mike scores a goal. The game ends. Dream Team 3 – Royal Family 1.
Prince Simba smiles. The kitties are excellent players. The game was fair and it has been lots of fun. Chef Sammy is waiting for all at the Royal Dining Hall with hot dogs and catnip coke. This has been a wonderful day.

Mr. Sun shines brightly in Tigre this afternoon. After our adventure during the last two days; King Mickey and I decided to stay at the Estancia. We have some nice relaxing activities scheduled for this day.

The Catnip Gardens will be open to all. The kittens love rolling over the grass and play surrounded by fresh catmint.
Our Royal Cruises will be doing short fishing trips through the Paraná River; Captains Sammy, Shadow & Raven welcome aboard every kitty at the Port.
Lady Lily will be giving more riding lessons with her Unicorns Viento & Nieve. Dame Cherish and her kitty pilots wait for you with their planes to take you in a lovely flight over the Estancia and its surroundings. Don´t miss these flights; the sight is awesome and you will have the time of your lives!!
Chef Oscar Jon is making micehrooms pizza for dinner. Please, visit the Ice Cream Cart where you can always have milk shakes, ice tea and ice creams.

It rained a river yesterday night and it´s been said it will continue raining today. Meanwhile, the temperature still keeps around +90F and the kitties are getting ready to take a tour to Buenos Aires´ City.
We´ve rented a kitty bus and Malachi is driving it.
The trip from Tigre to Buenos Aires City takes about 45 minutes. Buenos Aires is beautiful. Princess Sally stands and explains our fur friends we´re on 9 De Julio Avenue; the widest avenue in the world. The kitties look through the windows. A huge quantity of cars come and go. The bus stops for a minute. Sally tells all to take a look to the Obelisco. The Obelisco is a monument considered an icon of Buenos Aires, built in 1936 to mark the fourth centenary of the foundation of the city. It´s located in the Plaza of the Republic, at the intersection of avenues Corrientes and 9 de Julio. It was declared a National Historic Landmark.
The kitties get down the bus and Queen Boo Kitty makes sure to take a lovely photo of them all in front of the Obelisco. And now we´re on Corrientes Avenue. Oh boy!! Mom loves this street so badly!! I remind the silly songs she listens at home; it goes like that: “las luces se encienden y calle Corrientes se llena de gente que viene y que va...” Probably you haven´t heard it before but it´s very popular over here. (the lyrics mean “the lights turn on and Corrientes street get full of people coming and going...”)
Corrientes Ave. is the hub of nightlife and bohemian city of Buenos Aires. In its bars and theaters coined the tango, and throughout history,big bands and singers, including the popular idol Carlos Gardel played and singed their songs there.
An Argentinian writer, Roberto Arlt wrote the following words about Corrientes Ave.:
Corrientes, at night! While the other streets sleep to wake up at six o'clock, Corrientes, wandering the streets, lights at seven in the evening all its neon signs, and rectangles garlanded green, red and blue, white walls throws its reflections methylene blue, its yellow picric acid, as the glorious challenge of fireworks.
The street you love, the street you really love. The street is so nice to walk because it´s the street of forgetfulness, joy and pleasure.
Princess Sally anounces we´re in front of El Gato Negro. One of the nicest places to have a drink in Buenos Aires. Gato Negro is a classic and traditional bar and restaurant in Buenos Aires, declared Notable Café and Cultural Heritage of the City of Buenos Aires and is also one of the main spices selling houses in town. In its first floor restaurant has a lounge where events are usually performed accompanied by jazz and tango music.
We´re all ready to have a kitty drink there. The day is young... There are still many things to be seen...

We had a GREAT time fishing yesterday!! Many thanks to the Captains & Fishers; they did an awesome job and we got lots of fresh fish. (Woo-hoo!!). Q. Sheba and Chef Oscar Jon cooked a big fish fry for lunch. It was delicious. I´m still licking my whiskers!
Now, as the sun comes down, we get ready for another special event: It´s a surprise party for Lady Yum Yum that K.Cody Lee organized with me. These wonderful kitties (Yum Yum & K. Cody) are celebrating their 1st Anniversary today.
Earlier this morning, I asked Lily to take Yum Yum with Viento & Nieve for some riding lessons. We needed a couple of hours to organize our party.
K.Cody wears a tuxedo and looks very handsome. He´s a little bit nervous; but King Mickey approaches to him and tells him everything will be purrfect.
Lily & Yum Yum reach the entrance to the Estancia. Sir Ernie is there and tells the ladies to change their clothes. Yum Yum is surprised. –Which is the special event?-She asks.
-I can´t tell you, my ladies. –Sir Ernie answers.
Cap.Shadow & Cap.Raven are lining the vessels in the port. Our party will be held aboard the Royal Cruise.
Prince Simba passes by the Kitchen where Chef Sammy is cooking a lobster with catnip and lemon cream sauce. The smell is priceless. Sassy Su helps Yum Yum to powder her nose and then, she leads her to the port.
K.Cody and all of us are already on board the “Reina Lola”. Yum Yum looks beautiful wearing a lavander dress. K.Cody can hardly speak but he says: -Happy anniversary, my love!! and he gives his sweetheart a big bouquet of red roses.
Yum Yum purrs and takes K.Cody´s paw. – I love you, Cody. –She says.
Angel Loki & Mama made crafts with the kitties. Little Pumpkin gives a red heart with glitter to the couple. The youngest members of the Kingdom made it for them as a gift.
Everybody applaud. And now Sebastien and his Kool Kats Band start to play “And I love her”...
Cheff Sammy arrives with the lobster followed by Lady Arty with a huge cherry cream cake for dessert. The lights are reflected in the water. I lay down my head on Mickey´s shoulder and he smiles at me...

Hello dear kitties! It´s a splendid day in Tigre. Captain Sebastien tells Queen Lola & King Mickey they´re ready to sail. The Coast Guard Ships are right next to the Royal Cruise followed by the other cruises and the rest of the boats.
Sir Kit & Sir Steve make sure all the kitties are on board. We´re having a fishing trip today. The kitties are very excited. Lily waves Viento & Nieve.
Every cat makes sure to have a good fishing rod. We´ll be fishing goldfish, catfish silversides, armed, catfish, yellow, pacúes and tarariras. The fishes will be later taken to the Royal Kitchen where Chefs Sammy and Oscar Jon will cook them for dinner.
The sun is shining brightly and the ladies of the Kingdom are thinking about having a great sunbath. Everybody purrs.
Captain Mafia has seen something in the water and alerts the rest of the kitties. –What´s that? – He says.
Captain Gin Gin approaches him with her boat. –It´s a duck! – She says. The kittens are curious and excited, some of them had never seen ducks before. The feathered friends watch them and dive into the water.
Jo Jo casts her fishing line into the water and... OMG! it seems she has caught a big fish!
Lia & Maia go to see. Yes, she has caught a pacú. –Great work, sister! –They say.
Here comes Captain Mike with the “Oceano”; his sisters Evie & Mallow are on board; Queen Lola sees they have caught a goldfish.
Princess Sally and Prince Charlie are traveling with Caprain Spanky Jack; they come across a ship which sells fruits and vegetables.
All the kitties are having the time of their lives. They will be fishing until the sun comes down. King Kato is holding his camera and he´s taking wonderful pictures with his pretty girl, Shakira. This is going to be an unforgettable day.

We did have some rain yesterday night befote we went to bed. Luckily every kitty was inside the Estancia having dinner and none of us got wet. (MOL!)
I was afraid Mr. Sun wasn´t going to show up this morning but he did and we´re having a lovely and warm day.
Lady Lily will be teaching the little kittens how to ride our magical Unicorns Viento & Nieve. She told us these Unicorns have never known bit, bridle, or saddle. They respond to kindness and a gentle touch. The rider puts the slightest paw pressure and Viento will change direction or speed up, if you want to stop, just tighten your back legs and he will immediately come to a halt.
Lily has brought out a sapphire silk harness, trimmed in gold, for kitties to hold onto while they ride. Everyone can have a ride or more; Viento & Nieve have unlimited endurance and patience, they will go as fast or as far as you want. I can see through the window little Shadowfoot & Miles are already riding the unicorns. They look so cute!!
Lily whistles and Viento & Nieve whinney and come galloping. She giggles while she gives them carrots while the kitties take turns riding them.
Today I´m wearing an afternoon gown of white cotton layered with green batiste, wide dolman sleeves, and a chaplet of orange blossoms that Lady Yum Yum has picked up specially for me. Thank you so much Yummy!!
We will be having an spa day. Dame Sassy Su & Dame Doodlebug will be giving kitty yoga classes. They´re great. Don´t miss them. Lady Sparkles will be giving purr-therapy lessons as well. The best I´ve ever taken.
We need to rest during the day because tonight Lady Gracie will be hosting her Full Moon Pawty at Estancia Paraíso with us. King Mickey and I have asked Miss Coco & Miss Destiny to set up a huge table in the gardens and Lady Strudel has decorated the galleries of the manor with ceibo flowers.
I can smell a delicious aroma coming from the Royal Kitchen. It´s my Chef Sammy cooking salmon with catnip-cream sauce for the party. Just thinking of it makes me purr!!
The greatest DJ in the whole world, my friend Misty & her assistant, Lady Quincy will be offering us a special music show. Are you ready, fur friends? Tonight we will have... TANGO!!
The tango is danced in pairs, so be sure to be close to your sweet heart or to that special fur friend you love to hang out with when the music starts to play. It´s full moon night and it´s a very romantic moment.
Our Royal Chefs, Sir Oscar Jon & Sir Sammy will be hosting an International Cuisine Festival tomorrow night. There will be dishes from all over the world. If you would like to eat something special, I will be glad you let us know, so we can cook that for you.

Have a super purrfect Thursday, dear kitties!!
With much love,
From your Queen Lola ♥

It´s another warm and sunny morning in Tigre and all the kitties are busy at Estancia Paraíso. Dame Cherish is currently teaching Angel Flight...flight school for some of our Angels and she has told us today they´re all flying here as a part of their lessons. I could not be happier. What a joy to have the Angel kitties at home!!
Today it´s also my sister Mrs. Pucca 6th birthday.We will be waiting for the Angels with some ice catnip tea and then we´ll be going to sail. Mrs. Pucca loves sailing and she has asked me to launch our brand new Royal Fleet on this special ocassion.
Tigre is a city in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina and it covers the first section of the Paraná Delta and low-lying islands. Tigre is bordered on the north to the Rio Parana de las Palmas, on the northeast to the Río de la Plata, southeast to San Fernando and west to Escobar.
Our Royal Cruise “Reina Lola” will sail from Rio Paraná (Paraná River) and we´ll be doing a tour all through this beautiful area. We´ll be seeing its picturesque waterfront as well as some net rowing clubs in English style, countless nautical nurseries and large mansions from the Belle Époque like for example, the Tigre Hotel. Be sure to have your kitty cameras with you!! King Mickey, Mrs.Pucca, Simba and I will be aboard the "Reina Lola" led by Sebastien and his crew to guide the rest of the boats. All the Captains will need to check your boats before we leave. I specially ask to the Guard Coast Captains to keep always close to us supervising everything. Thank you!!
After the trip we will be having mate and tortas fritas at the Estancia. Mate is an infusion prepared with leaves of yerba mate (a plant native of the Paraná, Paraguay and Uruguay). These plants previously dried, chopped and ground maté form, have a bitter taste due to tannins in their leaves. Traditionally, mate is drunk through a straw placed in a small container, which is called “mate”. This is a hot infusion although you can have it cold and that´s what we call “mate tereré”.
The “tortas fritas” are a snack cake typical of Rio de la Plata, and later extended to other countries where it is known under a different name. They are sweet or moderately salty, since the mass is added only a pinch of salt in some cases. I have given the recipe to Lady Artemis who has done a remarkable job by cooking them.
I want to thank to Chef Sammy for cooking the delicious empanadas yesterday. He´s cooking locro for dinner tonight and we´re all going to love it!!
Lady Lily will be officially introducing our new friends, Viento & Nieve, the Unicorns, to all the kitties this evening and she will be teaching how to ride them to all our friends who wish to learn.
With much love,
From your Queen Lola ♥

ON OUR WAY TO ARGENTINA!!

All the kitties at the Castle woke up early this morning. Mr.Sun was showing his first rays when Dame Charlotte entered into our room. She was carrying a little tray in his paws with the breakfast that Chef Sammy had prepared for King Mickey and for me.
-The burritos night was a huge success, your Highness. She said. And then she continued: -Dame Sassy Su and Lady Zoe Monique are waking all the kitties;breakfast has been served and we will be leaving to Argentina soon.
-Are you nervous? –I asked to King Mickey. –Today is the big day; our fur friends are coming to my country.
King Mickey looked at me and aswered: -A little bit nervous, sweet heart, although I know we´re going to have lots of fun in this trip.
Outside Dame Cherish was super busy supervising the planes and talking to the pilots.
King Pete and Hot Rod announced purring that the Royal Plane was ready. My Purrsonal Guards were already on board. Sir Ernie & Sir Steve looked at the plates of caviar that Mrs.Murphy had prepared for us and smiled.
Every kitty in the Kingdom was ready to leave. Some of the kittens were very excited because it was their first trip on a plane.
Miss Coco & Miss Destiny locked the doors of the Royal Castle. Lady Mimi counted the kitties to make sure none of them was left behind.
Queen Boo Kitty, my Royal Photographer, took a photo of all us at the Royal Gardens next to the planes before we left.
Finally, King Mickey, me and the entire Royal Family boarded the Royal Plane. This was going to be a great day.
-Before the night arrives, we will be all in Buenos Aires. – I said to King Mickey. I can´t wait to show my beautiful land to my friends.
I could hear the noise of idling engines and then, the planes took off one by one...

BURRITOS NIGHT & TWO VERY SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

Good evening every kitty in the Kingdom!! Today is the most happiest day of my life: my King Mickey has asked me to be his wife. My joy is enormous. There are no words to describe it.
Yesterday night, King Mickey took one of my paws and invited me to go to the edge of the glittering pool. We sat down on a comfy log and tossed a few pebbles into the water making pretty little ringlets. After the ringlets disappeared, my Mickey said: - Look, Lolita, the water reflects us like a mirror! Then, he placed a little velvet box into my right paw and when I opened it a dazzling jeweled ring catched the light... -Lola, will you marry me? – He asked. –Of, course. I answered before a couple of tears of happiness started to run out of my eyes. I purred. We purred. It was a purrfect night.
We´re inviting you all to share this special moment of our lives with us at the Castle. Chef Sammy is hosting a Burritos night. He cooks pawesome burritos. Miss Coco & Miss Destiny have decorated the Royal Gardens with garlands and colored lights. Chef Sammy cooked also Mexican tacos and the desserts were all made by Lady Artemis.
Please, come and stay to spend the night with us at the Castle. Dame Charlotte and Lady Sparkles K have prepared the rooms for our guests and Lady Strudel put flowers in all of them. Bring your strollers if you have them; Dame Doodlebug and Lady Yum Yum will organize a strollers race. (Woo-hoo!!)
And now the second announcement: King Mickey and I have a surprise for you, fur friends!! We want to invited you to spend two weeks in Argentina. We´ve rented a Estancia in Tigre with enough rooms for each one of you. Dame Cherish and her pilots will be transporting us tomorrow morning. Daily flights will be scheduled from USA to Argentina daily. I´m so excited to show you my beautiful land.
THANK YOU EVER SO MUCH to the kitties that accepted our invitation to be captains of our Royal Fleet. A list with their names will be publised tomorrow. I hope to see you all tonight.
Have a lovely Sunday!!

JOIN US IN A TOUR THROUGH THE TUNNELS IN THE CASTLE

Good afternoon to all the kitties in the Kingdom!!
King Mickey and I would like to thank from the bottom of our hearts to all the brilliant mousers that came to the Castle to help us to get rid of those mischievous mice.
We are purrfectly sure they´re all gone now as their Chief has been caught yesterday night by Dame Marshmallow. We´re pleased to announce you that many other mice were also caught by the the following fur friends: Jo Jo & Sammy – Peanut Lee – Gypsy & Greeycee – Toby – Rhuby & Finster – Sassy Su – Artemis – Sparky - Shakira & Kato – Misse – Rosie – Thunderfoot – Gretchen – Mocha – Sienna- Lily – Malachi & Patches.
Each one of these remarkable cats that fighted against these little critters will receive a special box containing salmon & catnip cookies from the Queen. Thank you!!
Today Chef Sir Oscar Jon is making pizza with mouse- rhooms to celebrate. We will also have pumpkin cheesecake for dessert specially baked by Lady Artemis.
Then, in the evening our friends Raven & Pete will organize a tour through the tunnels and chambers beneath the Castle. King Mickey and I are both very excited about it!! They will conduce us and a number of guests through the sections that have been studied and determined to be safe. You´re all welcome to join us. Please, bring the little kittens with you, Angel Loki will be baby-sitting them. He has prepared special catnip milk-shakes for them.
The tour will end at the Royal Library where lots of great books of interest to the kitties can be found. Raven & Pete have been doing a pawesome work to establish an archaeological record for the structures and the castle itself. We feel this is an important work, both in terms of Science and our feline culture.
Have a purrfect day, dear fur friends!! I hope to see you all at the Castle...
With much love,
From your Queen Lola ♥

ARE YOU A GREAT MOUSER?...

King Mickey and I woke early today and headed us to main hall for breakfast. The table was set and we had a cup of catnip tea with a yummy layer red velvet cake that Gracie and her family sent to us.
Mr. Sun was shining above in the sky and Mickey thought it would be nice to have a walk through the Castle. I took his paw. My sister Sally and Dame Charlotte joined us.
The four of us went out and passed by the Royal Gardens where Dayzee & Duchess were picking up the fallen leaves from the maple trees. The leaves were moved by a soft breeze and my ladies in waiting were having fun playing with them. We had many catnip balloons left from the pawty and to our joy, many kittens came to play with them in the morning. We stopped and said Hi! to Miles, Shadowfoot & Rosie. They were also chasing the maple leaves. They hided among them and asked us to find them. We did. All of us had a good laugh.
A delicious smell came from the Royal Kitchen and Sir Kit told us that Artemis was baking some cream puffs for the tea. I went to the kitchen and there was Arty very busy beating mice cream. And then... I saw something running in front of my eyes!! Was it a...? No, it could not be. I looked again. Yes, it was mouse!! I called Mickey. There was not only a mouse but five of them!!
-Mice at the kitchen!! – Shouted Mickey and Sir Ernie came running followed by Sir Steve.
One of the mice, the Mouse Chief, I guess, came close and spoke to me: - Your Highness. – He said. –We´ve come here to stay.
What a gall!! I hissed. – I command you to retire immediatly! – I said and the little critter laughed at me. – No way!! – He replied.
Oh!! I wanted to go after him and catch him but Sir Ernie stopped me. – No, my Queen, I will take care of the mice. – He told me.
Sir Steve went after him and in a blink all the Royal Guardians were there. The mice started to run over the kitchen getting into mischief.
Sir Kit was able to catch two of them. Sir Steve & Sir Ernie caught another one and Sir Eynnie & Sir Lestat caught the fourth. Unfortunaltely their chief ran away leaving flour and milk everywhere.
So, today I´m asking to the Royal Mousers and all the mousers in the Kingdom to come to Castle and help us to get rid of these mischievous mice.
We suspect there could be more of them hiding expecting to take advantage of us when we´re distracted.
My Guardians are brave and strong and they´re doing a remarkable job but we need as much help as we can get.
With much love,
From your Queen Lola ♥

((¯`v´¯))Let´s Celebrate!! ((¯`v´¯))
Today, Tuesday 1st November, is my first day at the Royal Castle and it also happens to be Mafia´s 24th birthday. Mafia is a handsome Siamese kitty and he´s also a very good friend of mine. Because of this, I have invited him to come and celebrate his special day with us here. The sun is shining brightly and every cat and kitten is invited to the party. We hope you can come and have a beautiful day with us.
My secretary, Dame Charlotte and my ladies in waiting have decorated the Castle for this occasion. Miss Strudel has been working on the floral arrangements and she has a done a remarkable job placing big bouquets of roses and catnip all over the place.
Miss Yum Yum and Miss Artemis have chosen a nice dress for me and they helped me also to brush my fur and comb my whiskers.
Cheff Sammy has prepared an exclusive feast for the party. It includes his famous burritos as well as a huge 3 floors mice cream cake which will be served along with catnip coffee or tea.
I want to thank to Misty & Quincy who will be performing a special show for Mafia and all of us this evening. Please, give a round of applause to them. King Mickey and I love dancing and we hope every kitty is ready to move tails and have a great time!!
The party will last until midnight. Dame Cherish and her pawesome group of kitty pilots will be performing an amazing Air-Show before dinner.
Miss Sparkles K is organizing a Treasure Hunt for the kittens assisted by Miss Mama & sweet Angel Loki.
Miss Zoe Monique, Dame Sassy Su, Dame Doodlebug and Miss Mimi will be receiving our guests at the entrance of the Castle and telling them about all the activities for this day. They will give a catnip balloon to each one of our guests too.
My Purrsonal Royal Guard, Sir Ernie, Sir Steve, Sir Kit, Sir Eynnie & Sir Lestat will be taking care of us and making sure we have a safe evening. Scratching posts and cats trees have put in every corner of the Castle for you to have fun.
Is my wish you have a purrfect day, dear kitties and lots of fun too!!

HALLOWEEN - Part III

CAT GHOST STORIES
Shrouded in mystery, the cat has long been linked with witches, gods and ghosts. So it is only natural that on Halloween the spooky cat stories come to light.

*Fairport harbor which is on Lake Erie has a historic lighthouse halfway between Cleveland and Ashtabula. This lighthouse once was used as a sentinel, guiding mariners in the 19th century to safety at the mouth of the Grand River. The wife of the lighthouse keeper was bedridden for most of her life due to a serious and lengthy illness. Her bedroom was on the second floor of the lighthouse and she had several cats to keep her company.
Years later when the lighthouse was being turned into a museum, the workers spoke of an eerie presence in the now darkened tower. The curator who lived at the lighthouse once it was a museum swore she saw the gray ghost of a cat on several occasions. Not a woman given to fancy, it was hard not to believe her, although there were skeptics. However, in the year 2000 when workers were installing air conditioning, they found the mummified remains of a gray cat.

*Redlands, California boasts of several ghostly cats... Two cats that lived outside Rama Garden, an exclusive Thai restaurant, are seen regularly by the employees. However Boots and Peach died six years ago! But that doesn't seem to stop them from joining their living cat friends that get their daily meal from this cat friendly restaurant.

*Our living cats are also good at telling us when there are ghosts around and about. Many times people will be sitting with their cat and the cat, for no apparent reason, will begin arching its back and hissing, obviously upset by whatever it was seeing. There have been tellings of people who have smelled perfume or a pipe where there was no one. The consensus is that the cat, who has a sixth sense much better than that of a human, could "see" the ghostly figure.

*Please, visit ANGEL MAGGIE #2546 and let her know how happy we are to have her as our October Queen.
*Keep in your prayers our sick fur friends and their families.

HALLOWEEN – Part III

OLD JACK LEGEND

Once upon a very long time ago, there lived a great big pumpkin. I can remember walking down that old country road and seeing that poor old pumpkin just sitting in the pumpkin patch. Nobody else wanted him because he was just too big and it would have been too much work to clean and carve him. Ah, old Jack. He sure was a handsome pumpkin.
I decided right then and there, that I just had to have that pumpkin. I picked up that pumpkin and I carried him all the way home, all by myself. He was a very heavy pumpkin and I just about broke my back getting him home but, I made it safely.
I lived in an old log cabin all by myself. I was a lonely old fellow, way back then. It was just me and my old black cat, Bumpkins.
Me and Bumpkins go way back. He was just a tiny kitten when he showed up at my doorstep one Halloween night, many years ago. And, do you want to know something? Bumpkins was the only one that has turned up at my doorstep since.
Over the years, I bought bags and bags of candy. No-one came. I was sad to see all that candy go to waste, but more than anything else, I had wanted to see some happy faces around here. I had all but given up on Halloween this one year. I had decided that I wasn't going to carve a pumpkin that year! I had also decided that I wasn't going to shell out any candy. I was bound and determined that I wasn't going to celebrate Halloween that year. That was until I had spotted Old Jack in that pumpkin patch.
Old Bumpkins quite approved of my choice for that year's jack-o-lantern. As soon as Bumpkins laid eyes on Jack, he let out a loud happy meow. It was love at first sight.
Bumpkins and I tenderly carved Old Jack out with care. He turned out perfectly. His teethy smile radiated a special glow when I set him outside on my front porch and lit his candle. I had no sooner lit the candle and there, right on my front doorstep were all kinds of happy faces around me. I was so happy myself that I had tears coming out of my eyes as I shelled out the candy to them.
Old Jack saved my Halloween that year. I kept the seeds from that there pumpkin and the following spring I planted them in my garden. Every year now, all my jack-o-lanterns are a part of Old Jack and I've never had a lonely Halloween since.

*Please, visit ANGEL MAGGIE #2546 and let her know how happy we are to have her as our October Queen.
*Keep in your prayers our sick fur friends and their families.
*Congratulations to our COTD today BOUIE # 220743!!

HALLOWEEN – Part II

JACK-O-LANTERN LEGEND
There is an enduring Irish story based on the Jack-o-Lantern character. In the story, Jack tricks the Devil into climbing up an apple tree with a promise of cider. Then mischievously, Jack carved the sign of the cross into the apple tree's trunk, this infuriates the Devil as he dare not climb down and touch the cross.
Years later Jack dies, but because of his life of mischief, drunkenness and worse, there is no chance of him going to heaven. Reluctantly, Jack heads for Hell, but the devil remembers his prank with the cross on the apple tree, and consequently refuses Jack entry to hell. Thus Jack is left to roam the netherworld, and the only time of the year when he can become visible is at Halloween, hence Jack-o-Lantern.

I AM A PUMPKIN
I am a pumpkin, big and round.
Once upon a time I grew on the ground
Now I have mouth, two eyes, a nose.
What are they for, do you suppose?
When I have a candle inside shining bright,
I'll be a jack-o-lantern on Halloween night.
Jack-o-lanterns, big and scary,
Some are sad, some are merry.
Some are large and some are small.
Some just have no teeth at all!

*Pumpkins are not vegetables ... they're fruits.
*Pumpkins, gourds, and other varieties of squash are all members of the family Cucurbitacae, which also includes cucumbers, gherkins, and melons.
*Pumpkins have been grown in America for over 5,000 years. They are indigenous to the western hemisphere and were completely unknown in Europe before the time of Columbus.

*Please, visit ANGEL MAGGIE #2546 and let her know how happy we are to have her as our October Queen.

HALLOWEEN – Part I

Halloween (or Hallowe'en) is an annual holiday observed on October 31, which commonly includes activities such as trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, carving jack-o'-lanterns, bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films.
Historian Nicholas Rogers, exploring the origins of Halloween, notes that while "some folklorists have detected its origins in the Roman feast of Pomona, the goddess of fruits and seeds, or in the festival of the dead called Parentalia, it is more typically linked to the Celtic festival of Samhain, whose original spelling was Samuin (pronounced sow-an or sow-in)". The name of the festival historically kept by the Gaels and Celts in the British Isles is derived from Old Irish and means roughly "summer's end".
The word Halloween is first attested in the 16th century and represents a Scottish variant of the fuller All-Hallows-Even ("evening"), that is, the night before All Hallows Day.
ASPCA TIPS TO HAVE A PURRFECT HALLOWEEN
*No tricks, no treats: That bowl of candy is for trick-or-treaters, not for Scruffy and Fluffy. Chocolate in all forms—especially dark or baking chocolate—can be very dangerous for dogs and cats. Candies containing the artificial sweetener xylitol can also cause problems. If you do suspect your pet has ingested something toxic, please call your veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435.
*Popular Halloween plants such as pumpkins and decorative corn are considered to be relatively nontoxic, but they can produce stomach upset in pets who nibble on them.
*A carved pumpkin certainly is festive, but do exercise caution if you choose to add a candle. Pets can easily knock a lit pumpkin over and cause a fire. Curious kittens especially run the risk of getting burned or singed by candle flames.
*Wires and cords from electric lights and other decorations should be kept out of reach of your pets. If chewed, your pet might suffer cuts or burns, or receive a possibly life-threatening electrical shock.
* All but the most social dogs and cats should be kept in a separate room away from the front door during peak trick-or-treating hours. Too many strangers can be scary and stressful for pets.
*When opening the door for trick-or-treaters, take care that your cat or dog doesn't dart outside.

*Please, visit ANGEL MAGGIE #2546 and let her know how happy we are to have her as our October Queen.
*Please visit Iago #221029 and make him and his Mom feel better.
*Keep in your prayers our sick fur friends and their families.

AMAZING CATS – PART II

*ROADRUNNER - THE ATHLETE
A black stray cat from New Jersey has a heart-warming, uplifting story to tell. One morning she came to Michael Greenblatt, a fitness trainer and rubbed her face against him when he was out for a jog. Michael went on with his run, but the kitty trailed behind. From that day on, the two became running partners, and she was named Roadrunner.
Everyday, Roadrunner showed up at Michael’s doorstep at around 5:30am, waiting for her partner to start the morning jog. A month later, Michael thought that he had to have this special cat in his life, so he welcomed Roadrunner into his home and the bond between the two started to blossom.
Michael is treating Roadrunner like an athlete. He preps her before the run and times her every time they are out. But I have a feeling that it’s Roadrunner who is truly training Michael, getting him out of his house to run with her.
Roadrunner loves her daily exercise. When Greenblatt gets home from work, she demands it. To Michael, Roadrunner means the world to him. “They say that pets find their owners, she definitely found me. I always felt that she is the best roadrunner of the world. She maybe the only roadrunner of the world.”
*OSCAR – THE BIONIC CAT
A cat that had its back feet severed by a combine harvester has been given two prosthetic limbs in a pioneering operation by a UK vet.
The new feet are custom-made implants that "peg" the ankle to the foot. They are bioengineered to mimic the way deer antler bone grows through the skin.
The operation - a world first - was carried out by Noel Fitzpatrick, a veterinary surgeon based in Surrey. His work is explored in a BBC documentary called The Bionic Vet. The cat, named Oscar, was referred to Mr Fitzpatrick by his local vet in Jersey, following the accident last October. Oscar was struck by the combine harvester whilst dozing in the sun.
The prosthetic pegs, called intraosseous transcutaneous amputation prosthetics (Itaps) were developed by a team from University College London led by Professor Gordon Blunn, who is head of UCL's Centre for Biomedical Engineering.
Professor Blunn and his team have worked in partnership with Mr Fitzpatrick to develop these weight-bearing implants, combining engineering mechanics with biology.
Mr Fitzpatrick explained: "The real revolution with Oscar is [that] we have put a piece of metal and a flange into which skin grows into an extremely tight bone."
He said that the success of this operation showed the potential of the technology.

*Please, visit ANGEL MAGGIE #2546 and let her know how happy we are to have her as our October Queen.
*Keep in your prayers our sick fur friends and their families.

AMAZING CATS – PART I

DANTE – THE VEGETARIAN
In early 2009 a cat in a village near Norwich, in the east of England, had cat experts scratching their heads — because he refuses to eat meat or fish. The black-and-white tom was found in an alleyway, close to starvation, by Becky Page, who named him Dante. Thinking he would love some chicken, she put a tasty sample in front of him — but he turned up his whiskers at it and wouldn't eat it. There was the same result with tuna and other seafood. 'But just when I thought nothing was going to work,' said Becky, 'I found him wolfing down a plate of left-over vegetables that was by the kitchen bin waiting to be thrown out.'
Ever since then Dante, about 2 years old at the time, has loved to eat melon, bananas, broccoli, rhubarb, asparagus, aubergines (eggplant) and Brussels sprouts — even uncooked potatoes. No one had ever come across a vegetarian cat before, as cats, unlike other mammals, need the amino acid taurine, and other minerals found only in meat, to maintain their health and especially their eyes. Fortunately Becky grows her own organic fruit and vegetables in her garden — but she admits to trying to sneak small pieces of meat into Dante's food to fulfil his needs. Sometimes he spots it, though, and will leave it.
Dante does not seem to supplement his food with live prey — in fact he prefers to stay indoors, finding the world outside rather scary — and he shows no interest in the other animals that Becky and her partner keep, including rabbits, guinea pigs and chickens. Despite his strange diet he appears to be in excellent health. Maggie Roberts, director of veterinary services at the UK's largest cat charity, Cats Protection, said, 'This is extremely rare. Cats are obligate carnivores, and I have never before heard of a cat that will not eat meat.' Well, she has now!

There's a Miracle of Friendship
that dwells within the heart...
And you don't know how it happens
or where it gets its start
But the happiness it brings you
always gives a special lift...
And you realize that Friendship
is one of God's great Gifts

24th Ocotober
I PURR, THEREFORE I AM

After many years of effort, researchers are still not sure how cats purr. But the most commonly accepted idea is that the cat's brain sends a signal telling the laryngeal muscles in its voice box to vibrate. At the same time, the cat is breathing in and out, which sends a stream of air through the vocal cords. The muscle movement causes the cords to vibrate, which is what creates the sound we know as a purr.
Smokey the cat has the loudest purr in the world! Most cats' purrs are measured at around 25 decibels, apparently — but a pet from a village near Northampton in England purrs at an average of some 70 decibels, and when she really gets going a close-up measurement shows 92, which equates to a lawnmower, or a hairdryer.
Smokey, about 12 years old, is a rescue cat taken on by the Adams family for their ten-year-old daughter. Noting Smokey's very loud purr, Ruth Adams started a 'cat-purring competition' in Northampton to raise funds for the charity Cats Protection. In early 2011 it became obvious that Smokey was going to be the clear winner, and Ruth and her husband Mark wondered whether maybe she had a record-breaking purr! They say she has always been very vocal, purring at some level much of the time and being silent only when she's asleep. She purrs even while eating.
The Guinness Records organisation was approached, and trials and expertise were organised by Northampton College. The Guinness requirements are very stringent, and recording of Smokey's purrs was made with equipment used by music professionals and in the presence of authorised witnesses. Confirming the feline's purr-themed title in early May 2011, a Guinness person said: -This is amazing!! Smokey can be seen and her purr heard in YouTube videos.

**LITTLE MEWS**
Little Mews is an all volunteer, non profit, 501(c)3 rescue organization located in Chenango County NY. They take in cats and kittens from a variety of situations, most are stray, unwanted, neglected or abused.
At Little Mews cats don't live in cages, they're cared for in family homes with lots of love and attention. They're socialized with other cats and large friendly dogs. Since the cats and kittens live in a home, not a shelter cage, they can take the time to know each cat individually.
Their goal is to find safe, healthy, forever homes for cats and to promote spay/neuter so that the number of unwanted cats is lowered every year. You can visit them at http://littlemews.org/default.aspx and they also have a group on Facebook.

FRIENDS & SHELTERS – Part II

RIKKI´S REFUGE ANIMAL SANCTUARY (Orange – VA)
Rikki's Refuge in Orange County, Virginia, is a 367 acre, no-kill, all species peaceful sanctuary. The refuge is home to over 1200 animals of over 20 different species.
Rikki’s Refuge is a unique place supported by many volunteers. They ask anyone interested in volunteering to have first visited Rikki’s, by attending one of their tours or open houses (there is one scheduled every month).
Rikki's Refuge provides homeless, abandoned and abused animals with a safe and loving place to stay. Very rarely one of their residents is adopted. Those who are not adopted receive a permanent home at Rikki's.
All animals are spayed or neutered before being adopted out.Rikki's is preserving the habitats of a wealth of Virginian plants, trees, flowers, animals, birds, and reptiles. You can visit their web site at http://www.RikkisRefuge.org

WHO IS RIKKI AND WHY IS THE REFUGE NAMED AFTER HIM?
On January 13, 1981, a Balinese kitten was born. Twelve weeks later he met his new family and lived happily with them for 15 years. They named him Rikki after the darting mongoose in Rudyard Kipling's "Rikki Tikki Tavi."
From the beginning, Rikki was a special cat who gracefully assumed the role of companion, confidant, counselor, and friend. He was quick to please and always loyal. Rikki lived his life to love and be loved.
Even among his family's cat hierarchy, Rikki gladly accepted the role of "bottom cat" although everyone knew he could be "top cat" in an instant. But power and prestige were not what Rikki was about. The only status he needed was to be a valued member of his family, and he was.
It seems fitting then, that years later the way Rikki lived his life would inspire the establishment of a sanctuary based on the same values that exemplified Rikki's life. When Rikki died of kidney failure in September, 1996, his family was heartbroken. Two years after his death, still grieving, they heard about plans to establish a no-kill, all species sanctuary. The land was there, the problem was money. Rikki's family quickly decided that the best way to honor their cat, always so full of love and kindness, was to enable homeless, sick, and unwanted animals to find comfort and compassion in a safe place. In August, 1998 they made a substantial donation that was used to purchase 330 acres of land in Orange, Virginia. Rikki's Refuge was now a reality.

FRIENDS & SHELTERS - Part I

Good afternoon dear kitties!! Mom and I thought we wanted to dedicate a couple of days in my campaign to tell you about some friends of us who work everyday to help cats, dogs and other animals to have a better life. They are always in need of help, volunteers, food and medicines.
If you can help them in any way or if you´re interested in their work you´re very welcome.
Please, if you´re considering adopting a fur baby, remember there are many of them looking for a home everywhere. There are also kitties and doggies with special needs. They are different because they need lots of special care and attention but they are plenty of love to give in return. The first shelter we are going to talk about works with kittens with special needs.
Mom and Dad met them through the Internet about one year ago.
They´re the BLIND CAT RESCUE & SANCTUARY in St.Pauls (NC)
They were started in 2005 to answer the need for a safe place for blind cats that were deemed unadoptable by regular shelters and were going to be killed just because they are blind. In 2011 they built a second shelter to answer the need for a safe place for FEL+ & FIV+ cats that were going to be killed just because they test positive for these viruses.
They publish a newsletter named "The Blind Cat Beacon". You can visit their web site at www.blindcatrescue.com and they also have a Facebook group to keep you updated about their cats.
You can help them by visitng them, volunteering or sponsoring one of their cats. Most of their cats live permanently at the shelter although sometimes a special person comes and gives them a furrever home.
Our family is currently sponsoring a kitty named Desireé. She´s both blind and deaf. Mom writes to the shelter and they tell us she´s super sweet. You can meet her on the web site. They also have a "wish list" of items they usually need.

*Please, visit Angel Maggie #2546 and let her know how happy we are to have her as our October Queen.

TOP WAYS TO DRIVE YOUR HUMAN CRAZY
(for cats ONLY!!)

1 - THE FAKE FOOD BEG
Practice your most pitiful meow, conbined with an expression of imminent starvation. When you have both down pat, follow your human around, mewing pathetically, and licking your lips whenever she looks at you. When she finally relents and dishes out a bit of your favorite food, sniff it disdainfully, then "cover" the food by scratching the floor around it. Extra points for dragging something over to actually cover the food. Her new silk underwear would work well.
2 – THE 3am WAKE UP CALL
In the wee hours of the morning, go to the furthest place from your human's sleeping place and wail loudly and pitifully. When he or she finally gets up to investigate the problem, assume a sleeping position and keep your eyes tightly closed. Wait 15 minutes after your human returns to bed, then repeat. Caution: Do not repeat more than three times. You want your slave--err, human, well rested in the morning so she can wait on you all day.
3 – CAMERA PLAY
One of our humans' favorite activities is pointing the black light-box at us to capture our most clever moments in what they call "pictures." Our favorite game is to arrange ourselves in stunningly cute poses, then move quickly or look away when the camera comes out. Is it any wonder that most cat pictures show us sleeping, or with our backs cleverly turned away from the camera?
Tips: Extra points for closing your eyes, moving until your ears are cropped off. Red eye images are great too.
4 – THE BOX GAME
The day will come when your human mom or dad will bring home a new toy for you. Pretend a great deal of anticipation and interest when she sets the box containing the toy on the floor. When she brings out the toy from the box, treat it with catly scorn (you know how), and focus your entire attention on the box it came in. The more lively your box play, the more fun this game can be. (You can always secretly inspect the toy when your human isn't looking.)
5 – TURN ON THE LOVE
When your human has had a particularly hectic day, and is fed up with your ruthless games, take a break and turn on the love, as only cats can. Jump on her lap and give her your most sleepy-eyed lovie gaze, as if you adore her more than anyone else in the world. This may come naturally to some of you. Others may need to practice, but we guarantee that the time will come when you'll feel the love for real, and the rewards will be priceless.


*Please, visit Angel Maggie #2546 and let her know how happy we are to have her as our October Queen.
*Keep in your prayers our sick fur friends and their families.

BLACK CATS – Part II
By Franny Syufy

Black cats pose an enigma to people who have never been up close and personal with one. People who share their homes with one or more black cats love them beyond measure.
Fear of black cats most likely stems from folklore held over from the middle ages, when black cats were thought to be witches' familiars.
Today, lovers of black cats bear no resemblance to witches, but are normal men and women who happen to love the stark beauty of all-black cats, along with their personalities.
Black is one of the three basic colors of cats which I would call "pure." The other two are red and white. All other colors and color patterns of cats are a combination of any two or three of these basic colors.
The differences are all a matter of genetics, a very complicated study of the genes which are carried down from cat-to-cat. Cats with a dominant black gene are often (but not always) pure black in appearance. A cat with two parents, both possessed of a dominant black gene, will almost always be pure black. However, if either of these cats has a recessive red gene, the child may also carry it, a fact which accounts for the fact that sometimes black cats appear "rusty" in the sun.
While many recognized breeds have been around for years, or are the result of naturally occurring genetic mutations, the Bombay is a result of years of selective breeding in an effort to develop a black "Parlour Panther." It is the only recognized cat breed whose only acceptable color is black.
In addition to the Bombay, listed above, The Cat Fanciers' Association allows solid black as a color option in 21 other breeds. The color description is fairly standard for all those breeds:
BLACK: dense coal black, sound from roots to tip of fur. Free from any tinge of rust on the tips. Nose leather: black. Paw pads: black or brown.
The exceptions are:
*Oriental - EBONY: dense coal black. Free from any tinge of rust on tips or smoke undercoat. Nose leather: black. Paw pads: black or brown.
*Sphynx - BLACK: black. One level tone from nose to tip of tail. Nose leather: black. Paw pads: black or brown.
*Ragamuffin - Although black is not specifically mentioned, the standard allows for "any color, with or without white," so technically speaking, an all-black Ragamuffin would be allowed under the breed standard.
One thing is beyond denial: People who live with black cats are crazy about them!!

BLACK CATS – Part I

When you visit the Black Cats Rescue Page, the first line reads: “Did you know that black cats are only half as likely to be adopted as cats of other colors?” Unfortunately they´re right. This happens not only in USA but here in our country and many other too.
People need to understand there is no truth about black cats bringing bad luck or other myths. Did you know that?...
*The ancient Egyptians venerated black cats and treated them as royalty. In fact, killing a black cat was a capital offence. Cats were mummified upon their death to preserve them for the afterlife. Even though many folks believe that a cat crossing one's path is bad luck, many think that a black cat crossing one's path means that person will have good luck. Moreover, if the cat is stoked three times or spoken to, the luck will be even greater.
* Fisherman's wives kept black cats for luck when their husbands went to sea, believing that owning a black cat kept danger away. Often these cats were stolen, as they were considered so valuable. Many sailors believed that if a black cat approached them on the deck of their ship, fortune would smile upon them.
*In Britain, it is thought that if a black cat resides in a house, a young woman living there will have many suitors.
*In France people believe that if one has a black cat with even one white hair, Lady Luck will smile upon the owner. In most other cultures, the black cat is considered to be a symbol of fortune - a prized possession - and the owner considered to very lucky.
*In the 1600’s Charles I of England, owned a black cat. He fiercely loved and protected his cat. Keeping it under guard 24/7, until one day the cat fell ill and died. Charles I was heard to proclaim- “Alas my luck is gone.” The next day, he was arrested and charged with high treason. Ultimately he was put to his death.
*August 17th is National Black Cat Awareness Day in USA, dedicated to getting more friendly felines adopted.

¡FELIZ DIA DE LA MADRE! ( Happy Mother´s Day!)
from our home to yours...

Today we´re celebrating Mother´s Day in Argentina. It´s a special day for all of us and so, we will also have a special blog.
Celebrating motherhood is a historical tradition dating back almost as far as mothers themselves. A number of ancient cultures paid tribute to mothers as goddesses, including the ancient Greeks, who celebrated Rhea, the mother of all gods. The ancient Romans also honored their mother goddess, Cybele, in a notoriously rowdy springtime celebration and the Celtic Pagans marked the coming of spring with a fertility celebration linking their goddess Brigid together with the first milk of the ewes.
In our country, Mother´s Day is celebrated the 3rd Sunday in October and we call it “Día De La Madre”.

Mothers Are a Special Gift
by Faye Diane Kilday

Mothers are a special gift sent
From God above,
they bless us with their nurturing,
and fill us with their love.

They pick us up when we are down,
and when we're sad they know,
they're always there to lend a hand,
and guide us as we go.

Mothers are like special jewels
that can be bought or sold...
A mother's love's more precious
than the rarest gem or gold.

Yes, mothers are a special gift sent
from God above,
and we'll be blessed forever with
their never ending love!

Mom and I would like to dedicate this blog today to the following CC Moms:
*SUE ( Galatea – Snowflake-Juliana-Delilah-Giselle & Sabrina´s Mom #10546)

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR HUMANS-PART II
USEFUL ADVICE FOR CATS
By Martine Carlsen

SLEEPING TIME
It is important for us cats to prioritize our sleeping time. The objective is to get as much sleep done as possible while your human is awake. You will then be especially well rested and bushy-tailed at night when it is your job to keep your human awake. There is the classical "play with toes" approach: attack everything that moves under the duvet. You can also reenact highlights from last year's Grand National Steeplechase by repeatedly galloping across the bed. A couple of loud meows will give it an extra exiting dimension for your human.
CLOSED DOORS
Under no circumstances accept closed doors that separate you from your human. At all times you have a right to know what your human is doing. If by accident you have been placed on the wrong side of a door you need to make your human aware of this ASAP so he/she can remedy the situation immediately. Loud meows and scratching on the door should be sufficient to get your human's attention. If this is ignored you need to take more drastic measures: Make a sound as if you are going to throw up. All humans in a 50 feet radius can hear this sound. This sound can also be heard through closed doors. The "puke sound" will always result in your human's immediate presence.
INSPECTION OF THE HOUSE
A house usually has unlimited possibilities for suitable sleeping spots. Every possibility no matter how theoretical should be investigated and tested. Cardboard boxes, cupboards, drawers, couches and beds are obvious localities, but places such as old slippers (size 11 or higher) open gym bags or kitchen cupboards should not be overlooked. The house should further be investigated for all possible toys. An old sock can represent several hours of entertainment if you get your claw on a loose end and unravel a couple of miles worth of yarn. You human will love to tidy up after your play. With frequent and diligent application of these tips, your human will be trained in no time at all!
