My favorite tricks and treats are: Patches chases her tail and catches a ball in mid-air. She begs for food every night by stretching her paws up to the table and meowing at us. and Whisker Lickens Moist,Pounce crunchy catnip flavored treats or Party Mix (any flavors except seafood)

Where I hang out: The couch in mom & dad's room and by mom's feet if she is on the computer. I'm known to hang out on the kid's chairs to watch cartoons and of course under the table at dinnertime!

My favorite grubs: Purina Cat Chow
Fancy Feast

Any kind of chicken! No salmon or shrimp because I'm highly allergic!

My pet peeves: Hates dogs, thunderstorms & sweepers

What I love about my owners: She brushes me and spoils me with canned cat food and toys. She will play with me when I am bored and she lets me lay on her lap anytime that I want to.

My cat hobbies: Play tag & swish my beautiful tail at everyone!
Knead anyone available until I get sleepy.

Pet motto: Accept what you were dealt in the deck of life cards & live each moment to it's fullest!

How We Met

A woman where mom worked had a friend that was moving out of state & said she couldn't take all four of her cats. She said that Patches was very unsociable & we'd probably want to keep her outside & to be careful or she'd bite.I picked her up (hearing constant warnings from the owners) & it was love at first sight! No biting, no growling,just fear of being handled was her problem! Patches is a very lovable & affectionate kitty so I think she just didn't like her previous owners or else they mistreated her because she's been a wonderful addition to our home & gets along great with Zaboo. Some cats are just misunderstood!

Hi Patches!!
We have those possums around San Diego too, they are a big nuisance. Maybe it was looking for shelter and landed on your front step.
I met Dr Candy on Monday and she thinks I am a pure bred maine coon, I weigh 12 lbs 12 oz but will probably still grow because I have huge paws. I did not need shots or blood work because the rescue group did that, but I did get a microchip. My back feet turn out a little and Dr Candy said that could be from being kept in a small cage or I could have been born that way, and the breeder dumped me because they could not sell me. There is nothing she can do about it and I might develop arthritis when I get older, but maybe not too. Whatever happened, I am healthy and happy that I ended up here!! Mom is thinking of getting me a sister too.

I love my fake mice, you are very lucky there that you have real ones to find! Hugs,

Come visit me, Sabrina ~*~ In Loving Memory ~*~ & Luigi.

Oooohhh micey's we would have loved a chance at the real thing!!! The only one to ever catch one was K. Tuck and he didn't want to hand it over either!!MOL!!!
Shadow is slowly going downhill, but is still eating and Businessing normally, she doesn't play anymore but still likes to have all her toys piled around her. Mom is taking Maizy & Daizy for their big girl surgeries this will be meeting them soon. So please keep us in your prayers that everything goes well for our 2 mewest kitties.
Take care and stay warm my furiends!!!

Dear Patches,
You are such a beautiful girl! I don't blame you from staying away from the mice. I would too. Stay calm, cool and collected!

Dear Patches & NICE Crew,
Nice to hear from you all! So the "catchers" are teaching the kitties how to hunt! That's great! Three in two days! The "catchers" bring the kill to Mom. She throws it out and Joseph eats it. The circle of life!

I don't blame your Mom for not wanting to touch a dead possum. They seem like horrible things. My Mama told me that once, when she was a teenager, she had one cornered in the garage that had three babies on her back. She poked it with a broom until it made it's escape out of the garage. But she said it hissed and had long teeth!

Hey, it's great if Bartholomew comes to visit, but he must play by the "be nice" rule. He'll learn.

I will certainly try to make it to Q. Trixie's birthday party. Here are a few other parties to mark on your calendar.

On March 13th, Janet's son, Nat, will be 21 years old and there will be a party on Ana's page #270893 and Sandy's page #270892.

On March 14th, my Mama will have her birthday and there will be a party on Angel Malachi's page #194826 and on Mason's page #274013.

I enclosed a vote for you and wishes for you and your family to have a very blessed evening.

Purrs & kitty kisses,
Angel Malachi

Hi Patches and NICE Crew!
Oh, goodie! You got to have mice in your house to play with? Pawsome! We had a couple of mice a few months ago, but BC got them both! He didn't even let any of us help him! Of course, I wouldn't have wanted to, anyway, but the other might have. BC kept watching the bathtub, so the mice must have been under the house. I think they came in around the pipes to get warm. Well, they got plenty warm running around trying to escape BC. Mom found a dead one under the dining room table and the next day found the other one in the sunroom. No one was playing with them anymore, so I guess that's why she got a plastic bag to pick them up and throw them in the trash outside. Unfortunately, none of us have seen anymore, so Mom is happy.

We are all happy that most places on the east coast didn't have as much snow as the weather hoomans forecast! It's okay that they overestimated the problem, cuz at least, everyone was prepared for the worst and we're happy that it wasn't that bad. I think all of our prayers helped, don't you?

We woke up to a low this morning of 29 and a high today of 34. Tonight it's gonna drop to around 19. I and most of my sibs have been staying in the house most of the time. I just don't understand why they would want to go outside in this cold weather, but they do! I'd rather stay nice and dry and warm. They don't stay out too long, though. They run in and out...MOL! Then they jump on Mom's lap with wet paws! She doesn't care too much for that.

So, thanks for your visit today, sweet furiends and I'm gonna say goodnight for now. I'm leaving you a vote and wishes for a blessed evening and sweet dreams. Take care and stay warm. I'll catch ya, later. Love ya!

Lots of kitty kisses, hugs and purrs,
Duchess and Family

Hi Patches & NICE Crew!
We hope and pray all our furiends in the path of the northeastern storm are safe and warm. Watching the mews is unnerving and hard for us to imagine such extreme conditions. God bless all the people and animals out there without shelter.

Your Mom is awfully brave with dead rodents in her sight. I guess she knows you kitties have it under control! Our Mom is a real sissy! A dead possum?! She would have fainted for sure. MOL! Your Mom is so cool!

We'll be by on Thursday to bring mouse flavored candy and cupcakes for Q. Trixie's big day!

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

Hi Patches
You should save those mice. I baked a mouse pie with Party Mix crust for my golf buddies. They loved it. We have found dead possums also. Don't know what happens to them. They are too ugly to eat. Mom picks them up with a plastic bag and trashes them. Mimi

Hi Patches & NICE Crew
Mom just imagined the "big hairy, long-toothed rodent" that you described and quickly erased it from her mind. MOL!

I hope your power stays on to keep you safe and warm. Warm hugs, Artemis

Hi Patches & the NICE Kitties!
ow, mice in the house, just for YOU?! Your pawrents are fun! I'll have to have some words with ours, we would like some indoor recreation too. Not like I purrsonally would probably know what to do with a mouse if I found one, mol. Mojo might, she was feral for 10 weeks and her fur mom probably taught her a thing or two.

Well, we have a different kind of entertainment, the pawrents & Big Bro Will have been cleaning out the house a bit at a time. Big Bro Will is done his part of the house so Mom will be doing a bit more. Today they put out a big cardboard box full of flattened cardboard for the recycling guys to take. The garbage guys took an old couch cushion from a couch we haven't had for years, and last week they took a big rickety cabinet that Will wanted to get rid of.

The humans keep emptying out little cubbies I never knew existed and bringing out stuff with the smells of the ages all over it. Fascinating!

Now about those rodents for Trixie's cake, they're probably frozen outside, so you still might be able to use them! -- Evie

Hey Patches!
Mom sure is glad we don't have mice here! Also very glad she never finds a big dead rodent on the patio when she opens the door! Yuck! Well once again the weathermen were wrong. That 6-14" they predicted for us turned into 2 1/2". Not even close. So Mom took the day off work for nothing! A wasted vacation day. Glad it wasn't more but really screws things up. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect day. Kitty Kisses. Dean

Most adult cats are 8 to 10 inches tall at the shoulder. They weigh about 6 to 15 pounds but there are cats that weigh more than 20 lbs. and some that weigh less than 5 lbs.

*It is recorded in the world records that the smallest cat that ever lived was 2.75 inches tall and 7.5 inches long when fully grown.

Hello Patches
How was your weekend? We enjoyed a nice one. While Mommy was home from work for lunch yesterday, she & Nana gave me 200 cc sub-q fluids. All went very well. They are still learning, but they will do anything to help me. For now, I get fluids every Monday & Thursday. I have an appointment with Dr. William this Friday for more bloodwork. Paws crossed for only good mews please!

Have a lovely day.

Hi Patches and NICE Crew
Wow, the mice must be seeking a warm place, unknowingly scurrying into a trap, MOL. We had a couple of inches of snow on Sunday and a dusting yesterday.
We do have an opossum living in our old shed. Mom says we should charge rent, hehe.
I will do my best to get Mom to remember to come over for Trixie's b-day on Thursday.

Hi Patches and The Nice Crew,
How are you doing today? We are having a snowy day and I have been watching it from my condo. I did run out for a few minutes this morning when Mom went to feed the birds. Now I am very happy to be safe and warm inside. Mom and Dad did have a safe trip to Pittsburgh yesterday for Mom's Dr. appointment. It was snowing the whole time and was even foggy but thankfully they made it there and back safely. Tomorrow is shopping day. I of course helped Mom make the grocery list with plenty of items for us kitties. Hehehe.!!! I hope that you are having a good day and visit when you can. Purrs and a hug, Mittens.... Ps: It sounds like a " Rodent " pawty at your house. I will send my sister Gypsy over. She is a super mouser...

Come visit me, Mittens. I see snowflakes..., Q. Angel Misty. Blessings for all in 2015..., Minuette. Happy New Year..., Greycee Mist. Happy New Year... & Gypsy: Happy New Year....
