How We Met

Spike was a semi feral who came to me as part of a clowder whose person that was feeding them died. He now lives inside and Sandra was rescued from the local shelter and was a foster until mom found out that she has HCM which made her unadoptable. She's totally happy living with mom and lives inside

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.

Hello Sandra & Spike
What’s mew with you? I am pouting! Today was that nasty ole flea stuff day at our house. Soooo not fair! How would Mommy like it if I put something cold & smelly on her back every month? She would probably pout too!

No we are not on FB. Mommy is one of those anti-FB people. We have joined the new Mewsroom (the forum that K Zaboo's Mom created). We have not been active there yet though. We are sticking with CC until the end, and Mommy can only handle one site at a time.

Hope your day is less traumatic. Have a purrrfect weekend.
Kisses,

Hi Sandra and Spike!
We hope your Mom gets some rest and feels better. Be sure to give her a lot of purr-therapy. That always helps!

Our furiends and their families in need, are always in our prayers. Have a wonderful Sunday.

I left a vote with purrs and warm hugs.

Does Your Cat Have a Problem?
~~~~~
You can tell if your cat has a problem by asking yourself the following questions:

• Does your cat sleep 22 hours a day, and spend the other two hours in non-stop eating?

• Does your cat take frequent naps in annoying places, such as in the center of the dinner table, in the kitchen sink, or on top of your freshly-cleaned-of-hair (and favorite) bedspread?

• Is your cat selfish? Conceited? Arrogant? Aloof? Insensitive?

• Does he wake you up in the middle of the night and refuse to stop meowing until you accompany him to his food bowl to watch him eat?

• Does your cat tear down holiday decorations?

• Does he destroy any stuffed toy or cat-sized household ornament that might be misconstrued as his competition?

• Does your cat perceive himself to be sole owner of all property?

• Does he often show disdain for your taste, or act as if you are an embarrassment to him?

If you answered "yes" to most of these questions... Relax, your cat is normal.

Hello Spike & Sandra
Do you remember Casper Todd blogging that Santa brought us a “special” present? Well, you will never in a million years guess what it is. Give up? We got a Sister for Christmas. She looks almost exactly like me, probably because Santa sent my pictures into Cuddle Clones & had her specially made to look like me. She is stuffed, not real thank goodness. You can see Sister (that’s her name) in our profile pictures. We do not really like her, but for some reason Mommy does.

Stay warm & enjoy a wonderful weekend.
Kisses,
Q Sissy

My sweet heart Talley and I have some wonderful news. We’ve finally chosen a date for our wedding day. Talley did some research and discovered January 6th (which is a Monday next year) was considered Christmas before the reform of the calendar. It is the feast of the Epiphany, which is when the Wise Men reached Jesus and announced his birth to the world. It is still called “Old Christmas” by orthodox Christians. The celebration is held on the Sunday that falls between January 2nd and January 8th. We chose Sunday, the fifth of January 2014 to exchange our vows.

We still have a lot of planning to do dear furiends. We will soon let you know where and on what page our wedding will take place. Until then, we hope you can set aside the date to share in the celebration of our love.

Angel Yum’s Queenly Quickies!
Hi Sandra, thank you so much for coming by to visit with me at the Castle today. I'm sorry to hear your Mom still has the flu and had to cancel her trip to Atlanta to teach. Take advantage of her being home by giving her lots and lots of purr therapy. That was nice that you, Smudge, & Shayna were snuggled by your Mom. It sounds like you all were on your best behavior snuggling by your Mom.

Don’t forget, Royal Pastry Chef Artemis is having her first pasty class today at 10:00a in the Royal Kitchen. You will be making Cat Cupcakes and taking them home to your families in those cute Paw Print Boxes.

Tomorrow Royal Exercise Instructor Boo Kitty will be leading three Aqua Zumba classes at poolside!

Hear ye, hear yea! The summer is coming to a close soon! Let’s have a Pool Party on Caturday. We can all head down to the Royal Pool, relax around poolside, play some water games, have some good eats from the grill & Royal kitchen, and dance to some 60’s & 70’s music. Are there any Master Grillers out there that are up to the occasion? Just let me know!

Queen Angel Yum Yum asks the Royal Groundskeepers to work on trimming the bushes & hedges into water-themed sculptures for the kitties to enjoy during Caturday’s Pool Pawty.

The Ultimate Cat Treat Cookbook:
Treats and Tidbits: The Feline Sense of Smell
Very few studies have been conducted on the feline sense of smell; many more have been done on dogs. However, experts and cat owners alike know that cats do have a very good sense of smell. Their sense of smell is so good that most cats will not eat a food that doesn’t smell right. In addition, a cat with an upper respiratory problem that includes a runny nose may not eat because he/she either cannot smell their food or the illness has affected their sense of smell.

Kitty Pawsons Here! Well, when I was in line at the Hoedown getting a Felinetini Caturday night, I overheard the Royal bartender meowing with a Tom about a very, very sweet Royal who’s scared of their own shadow. As a matter of fact, if you look up the definition of scaredy-cat, you’ll see their picture. This sweet scaredy-cat loves the history of the black cat and is very superstitious. So much so that this Royal does everything they can to keep the bad spirits away. It seems that when this Royal was in the Castle they surrounded themself with black magic, talismans & good mojo. They still do this today. You know what they say…better safe than sorry!
I’ll report ‘em as I hear ‘em.

Hi Spike & Sandra
          “The Universal Gift”

There is one little “blessing”
that cats might need not send.
But if you live with cats
You will get it
and receive it without end.

You’ll find it floating everywhere.
You’ll wear it wherever you go.
Your closet, couch, and carpet
are “blessed”
and, oh, how it will show!

Even the corners of the curtains
will tell who’s just been there.
It’s the feline form of decorating –
cat hair everywhere!

Have a “gifted” day!
Purrs,

Well, it’s been a wild couple of days, but we pulled it off! The wedding went without a hitch and we all survived the Bachelor/Bachelorette pawties. Thanks to all of you for coming out to help us celebrate, the Angels sure know how to open up more space for dancing, mol.

It was Oscar Jon’s idea to get married the day that he got his COTD badge, and before we set off on the honeymoon we want to be sure and thank you as well for supporting him in his COTD campaign so that today's never to be forgotten double celebration could be possible!

Hello Sandra
So sorry that you have dermatitis. Mommy has suffered from that before and it's no fun. We hope the new flew collar will help you feel better.

How are you? Last week Mommy took my urine sample to be rechecked by Dr. William. He said that I was “much improved, but still had some e coli infection”. So I took 8 more days of meds. Woo hoo, yesterday was my last day!

After I have been off the meds for 3 or 4 days, Mommy will take yet another urine sample to be rechecked. Hopefully this time it will be all clear. I have had several very stressful months and Mommy says that I deserve some good mews. Keep your paws crossed please.

Have a delightful day.
Hugs,
Q MerryBelle

The sound of 11 shiny Harley's can be heard thundering down the road with the tune "Born To Be Wild" coming out of Kali's speakers.

They stop at SANDRA'S house and Thundie, Lola, Zoe Monique, Mallow, Cyndee, Ammie, Talley, Elvis, Coco & Malachi all climb off their bikes and Thundie rings the bell..

Kali hands SANDRA a gift basket from all the Rainbow Riders that includes a huge box of super duper flea spray, a nice new brush and some pawberries and cream and catpaign.

The Riders all give SANDRA a big hug and tell her they hope she will stop itching soon and that them dreaded fleas will vanish.

A Yum Yum & A Doodlebug sprinkle SANDRA with some Angel Flea powder {the best we have} and give her a big hug wrapped in their wings.



The Riders climb back on their bikes and drive off down the highway ..."Born to Be Wild" can be heard as they drive off.

Honorary Riders, Angels Yum Yum & Doodlebug fly along the back of the Riders to keep them safe as they travel along

Hi Pretty Sandra!
We hope the vet can do something about your dermatitis. We have you in our prayers dear furiend.

Today is housecleaning day at our house (Ugh!) so my fursister Callie and I are hiding out under the bed until Mom comes in here with the vacuum monster.

My Dad is doing fine, taking his high blood pressure medicine and even enjoying the healthy food Mom has him eating now, so he can hopefully lose a few pounds. My fursister Callie has finished the last of her antibiotics, but she is still running from Mom whenever she sees her. MOL! I guess it will take her a few days to get over it.

The outside kitties were doing fine this morning, hungry and eager to play with their toys.

I left a vote with purrs and hugs.

EDISON & FORD WINTER ESTATES

One of the outstanding geniuses in the history of technology, Thomas Edison earned patents for more than a thousand inventions, including the electric light, the phonograph, & the motion-picture camera. These three inventions gave rise to giant industries—electric utilities, phonograph & record companies, & the film industry—thus changing the work & leisure habits of people throughout the world. The period from 1879 to 1900, when Edison produced & perfected most of his devices, has been called the Age of Edison.

The Edison & Ford Winter Estate boasts over 20 acres of botanical gardens, nine historic buildings including Edison’s Botanic Research Laboratory & the Museum which contains an impressive collection of inventions, artifacts & special exhibit galleries. The Estate offers a variety of tours, insuring that there is something for everyone.

The gardens contain more than 1,700 plants representing more than 400 species from six continents. The Estates collection also includes the sausage tree, tropical fruit trees including mango & citrus, orchids, bromeliads, cycads, & more than 50 species of palms.

The Edison Botanic Research Laboratory is one of the most unique features of the Edison Estate. Edison, Henry Ford, & Harvey Firestone were concerned about America’s dependence on foreign sources for rubber. The three men formed the Edison Botanic Research Corporation (EBRC) in 1927. Under Edison’s leadership, the corporation sought a source of rubber that could be grown & produced quickly in the U.S. After testing over 17,000 plants, Edison eventually discovered a source in the plant Goldenrod.

My favorite tree is the banyan tree, four feet when planted around 1925 & now covers almost any acre of the grounds. I say, let’s go give it a climb! It should be lots of fun!!!

Interestingly, Edison was involved with re-inventing concrete (making it stronger & longer lasting) & built on his property one of the first concrete swimming pools. Evidently, Mr. Edison never once swam in it. When asked why he never exercised in the pool, he reportedly said he thought exercise was silly, that the sole purpose of the body is to hold up the head!

Day 19 – Yum’s Yikes ‘n Yarns,
Sandra, thank you so much for my COTM vote today. You are all so sweet to stay inside to be by your Mom! Give your Mom some purr therapy so she isn't so tired and be sure to have a great weekend.

Flagler did so much for the East Coast of Florida; however, much of it is forgotten. It was a blessing his granddaughter saved his home and turned it into a museum so Floridians and others could see his accomplishments.

The next three days we’re going to visit Museums or Winter Homes of some famous people. Today we’re flying on the carpet to Palm Beach on the East Coast to visit….

FLAGLER MUSEUM

Henry Morrison Flagler, an American industrialist with an 8th grade education, was a founding partner & "the brains" behind Standard Oil. He was also a key figure in developing the eastern coast of Florida along the Atlantic Ocean & is largely known only as the founder of Palm Beach & father of Miami.

Whitehall, Flagler’s winter home, was purchased for $50,000 in 1893. He & his 3rd wife, Mary Lily, moved in on February 6, 1902. They would travel to Palm Beach each year in one of their own private railcars, No. 91, which is on exhibit. Whitehall was described by the New York Herald as “more wonderful than any palace in Europe, grander & more magnificent than any other private dwelling in the world." Whitehall established the Palm Beach social scene for the wealthy of America's Gilded Age.

Flagler died at 83 after falling down a flight of marble stairs at Whitehall. Mary Lily died four years later. In 1959, the site was saved from demolition by his granddaughter, Jean Flagler Matthews. She established the Museum honoring his life & Florida history in 1960.

Some of Flagler’s accomplishments are highlighted in the Museum –

Tourism – Henry & his 2nd wife traveled to St. Augustine in 1883 finding it lacking in adequate hotels & transportation. He believed that Florida had the potential to attract large numbers of tourists. Flagler build the Hotel Ponce de Leon in 1888; The Royal Poinciana Hotel at Lake Worth in 1894; The Palm Beach Inn (renamed The Breakers) in 1896; & Hotel Royal Palm in Miami 1897.

Over-Sea Railroad - Flagler, believing one day a canal would be built across the Isthmus of Panama, worked through the Florida legislature as early as 1891 to keep his options open for building a railroad to Key West.

Florida East Coast Railway - In 1912, marking the completion of the Over-Sea Railroad, the entire east coast of Florida, from Jacksonville to Key West, was linked by a single railroad system.

See pictures in my gallery and visit http://flaglermuseum.us to read about all of his accomplishments….

Day 18 – Yum’s Yikes ‘n Yarns,
Sandra, thank you for my COTM vote today. Be sure to give your Mom lots of purr therapy so her neck doesn't bother her any longer. I'm glad you enjoyed being on the magic carpet for the ride to Gatorland!

Today, we are all headed to Orlando via my magic carpet and will be joined by my special guests, Cody Lee, my hottie, and his human sister, Jen, for a “gnashing” good time at…

GATORLAND

Florida Wildlife Institute, Snake Village & Alligator Farm, or Gatorland…for more than 60 years this same attraction is one of Central Florida's classics combining "Old Florida" charm with new exciting exhibits & entertainment. Gatorland has grown from a 16-acre plot to 110 acres & has continually upgraded and added new attractions & exhibits to its park since it first opened in 1949. Follow me through the signature Gator mouth to see what Gatorland holds for us today.

Gatorland showcases thousands of alligators & crocodiles. The petting zoo, one of a kind animal shows, natural alligator breeding marsh, & the "thrilling" Screamin' Gator Zip Line will ensure your day will be filled with fun, smiles, & special memories!

Gatorland has numerous exhibits...to highlight a few: Gatorland Train takes us on a tour of the park; Swamp Walk – provides a boardwalk that cuts through exquisite Florida wetlands; Breeding Marsh – we watch in wonderment as the alligators swim & sun in their natural habitat; & a wildlife preserve – where we see Judy, a rescued Florida Black Bear, lounging by her private pool with sun deck, or some zebras from Africa – the only ones in Central Florida.

The kittens might want to visit Alligator Alley which includes Allie’s Barnyard where they could pet & see baby animals like llamas, goats, lambs, ducks & turkeys; Lilly’s Pad – a kitten’s play area offering fun & relaxation with slides, jungle gym & more; or Gator Gully Splash Park – a splash zone featuring unusual water sources crafted to resemble some of the parks most popular residents.

For the not so faint at heart…let’s head to the Gator Wrestling Stadium with its large stage & surrounding moat. During the 20-minute show, a wrangler will jump into the reptile infested waters & haul a thrashing gator onto the stage while sharing little known facts about the real-life, armored dragons. The Screamin' Gator Zip Line will take us along 1,200 feet of high flying, heart pounding adventure. We will soar through the air & defy gravity over some of the theme park's star attractions--including Cuban & Nile crocodiles--before heading over the Alligator Breeding Marsh.

This attraction has enough gators to make your fur stand on end…MOL See some pictures in my gallery…..

HI SANDRA, FURSIBS, ANGELS
Yes, it was you, Sandra dear. tee hee. One of those pirates took my crown right off of my head and ran away. Sniff. I sent my Royal Guards after him and I sure hope I get it back. How else could I ever crown Angel Yum Yum???? I know that those scurvy pirates were drooling over the crown and wanted to put it in their treasure chest. Dolly is wringing her paws and looking around for K. MIke.

Hugs & Love,

Day 17 – Yum’s Yikes ‘n Yarns,
Sandra, thanks for my COTM vote. Sorry you have to go to the vet but you don't want to be itchy, right?

Everyone hop aboard my magic carpet – we are headed 36 miles north of my hometown to…..

SARASOTA JUNGLE GARDENS

This Florida attraction has roots that run deep. Sarasota Jungle Gardens (SJG), once described as an “impenetrable swamp”, consisting of muddy, swamp soil was considered by many to be infertile. The exact opposite, however, is true. Because the soil was once covered by fresh water & hundreds of years of decaying plants, it is actually very rich, & full of nutrients & minerals. The vegetation at SJG, once the only attraction here, still enthralls visitors from the world over. The Ponderosa Lemon with its football size fruit is a favorite, as well as the Carambola of Malaya, Bunya Bunya from Australia, Lychee of China & Norfolk Pine, to name a few. A stroll along deeply shaded, winding brick paths takes visitors across a number of rustic bridges that stem bubbling streams flowing into the many lagoons that dot the property.

SJG has a large number of American Flamingos & is one of the few zoos in the United States that allows their flock of flamingos to roam freely. This sounds to be most appetizing…oh I mean most interesting, of course! Did you know that flamingos derive their pink color from their diet of shrimp & other crustaceans?

Many of the exotic birds that call SJG “home” have come here via pet owners who can no longer care for their birds. And, many of these birds have out-lived their owners as the average life span of a Macaw in captivity can range from 40 to 100 years. Our Birds of Prey are Fine Feathered Friends…all of the Gardens’ Birds of Prey have been injured at one point in their lives & cannot be returned to the wild….“Who” the Barred Owl, Cheyenne, a Red Shouldered Hawk, Squint, the one-eyed Screech Owl, & Mortis, an injured Florida Black Vulture.

Alligators, Crocodiles & Snakes...SJG presents 2 exciting, educational reptile shows daily. Plus a gopher tortoise & a pair of Aldabra tortoises named Roscoe & Bertha, two bearded dragons, a skink, a creamsicle snake & other slithering critters you won’t want to miss.

Prairie Dogs at SJG …they’re cute, they’re cuddly, and their burrowing ways are rather destructive too. A friendly critter by the name of “Putter” joined our family after being relocated from Sarasota’s municipal golf course. His antics weren’t helping lower anyone’s handicap!

Beauty Flutters in the Butterfly Garden…is a combination of flowering vines, self-seeding flowers, perennial shrubs, palms, cycads & ferns -- all of which have been hand-selected to attract a variety of butterflies including Monarch, Sulfur & Swallowtail.

Some pictures are in my gallery…..

Day 16 – Yum’s Yikes ‘n Yarns,
Sandra, thank you for my COTM vote today. I'm so sorry to hear your Mom is not feeling well enough today to go to bed. When those noisy ole cleaning machines go away start in giving your Mom lots of purr-therapy so she is all better tomorrow!

I’m hopping on my magic carpet this morning with Mimi, 10-month old kittens JC, Wind Song, Cloud Shadow; and 3-month old kittens, Gray Stone & Black Stone. We’re all heading 92 miles north to Tampa and an exciting place. When you hear the word Aquarium…what do you think? I think glass-sided tank or bowl and lunch! Well, wait ‘til you visit the…

FLORIDA AQUARIUM

The Florida Aquarium gives families a glimpse into the mysteries & magic of the undersea world. Marine exhibits spotlight the creatures that live in the bay or deeper underwater, even allowing kittens to touch rays & sharks at the new Stingray Beach or lock eyes with sea turtles.

Plan to take a Dolphin Cruise where we can experience the amazing, graceful & beautiful wild dolphins that call Tampa Bay home. Tampa Bay is home to more than 500 bottlenose dolphins & is one one of the best places to view endangered manatees & numerous species of birds, many of which are threatened or endangered. All of this wildlife thrives in one of the busiest deepwater ports in the Southern United States.

We can also visit Explore a Shore, the 2-acre outdoor water adventure zone that lets J.C., Wind Song, & Cloud Shadow cool off while pawents relax under the shade of the Cantina bar and grill; and Shipwreck Shore gives Gray Stone & Black Stone their own place to climb on animal figures and pirate ship replica.

Then there’s the Florida Wetlands Trail exhibit where we can take a journey through the nostalgic state park trail past the alligator-infested Suwannee River using old wooden signs to guide us. Venture further to the river streams where playful otters explore and Great Blue Herons and Roseate Spoonbills wade in the vegetation. Continue our adventure amongst native fish, owls and free flying birds when suddenly we come face-to-face with Florida’s invasive species…the Burmese Pythons.

Additionally, view the one-of-a-kind Coral Reef Gallery displaying one of the most beautiful & diverse ecosystems in the world. The coral reef exhibit is modeled after the coral formations of the Dry Tortugas off the Florida Keys.

Pounce on over to the newest attraction, Penguin Point! Watch African Black-footed penguins dive, swim and play in their new South African beach themed home; as well as, visit with the guests.

Day 15 – Yum’s Yikes ‘n Yarns,
Sandra, thank you for my COTM vote today. My Mom had a few doctor appointments today and is running really far behind. We are pouncing by to be sure we give you a vote today!

This will FINALLY be our last day here at the Springs. As ya’ll probably noticed, my Mom is a bit long-winded…blah, blah, blah…(I’m here to tell you she’s a bit long in the tooth too, but don’t tell her I said that)! I will be boarding my magic carpet tomorrow for the second half of the month and heading out to some attractions I hope will be of interest to you all!

WEEKI WACHEE SPRINGS STATE PARK – continued

In the 1960s, girls came from as far away as Tokyo to try out for the privilege of becoming a mermaid. The glamorous mermaids performed eight shows a day to sold out crowds -- as many as half a million people a year came to see the Weeki Wachee mermaids.

Weeki Wachee Springs employed 35 mermaids, who took turns swimming in the shows and captivating the crowds by playing football and having picnics underwater. The mermaids wore one-piece suits & were treated like royalty wherever they went in Florida.

The City of Weeki Wachee incorporated in 1966, putting the tiny city of Weeki Wachee on maps & state road signs. According to the U. S. Census Bureau’s 2004 estimates, the city has a population of 12. The city has a total area of 1.0 square mile.

In 1982, Buccaneer Bay opened with water slides & a white sand beach. In 1997, the popular Former Mermaid shows began, bringing former mermaids back to Weeki Wachee Springs to swim in the Mermaids of Yesteryear shows, which play to standing room only crowds.

There is so much to do & see we’ll just focus on some favorites. We can watch a mermaid show; swim at Buccaneer Bay & go on the Flume Ride; attend the Misunderstood Creatures Animal Show; take a riverboat ride down the Weeki Wachee River or take a journey on a single, double or triple tube around Buccaneer Bay; or sign up for “Sirens of the Deep Mermaid Camp” – we will experience what it’s like to be an underwater performer & even be fitted with a mermaid tail for posing. If the kittens have worn us out, we can take them to Lil Mates Caribbean Cove, a water play area reserved for them where we can relax while they are being supervised by lifeguards.

In 2008, Weeki Wachee Springs proudly became one of Florda's newest state parks! They are very proud to be a part of such a great tradition that the Florida State Park system offers.

Weeki Wachee Springs -- The City of Live Mermaids -- is more than just mermaids; it’s a truly original piece of Florida’s rich heritage.
