How We Met

I was at my mother's house, right after a big snowstorm, when I heard a cat meowing from the barn. I found her there--a half-grown kitten with a big voice. We didn't feel we could keep her and took her to the humane society. I cried all the way home. A couple weeks later, I got a call from a friend who managed the shelter at the time to tell me the cat was very ill with a URI and wondered if I wanted to try to foster her after getting her some care from the vet. So, I agreed. She spent over a week at the vet hospital--we weren't sure she'd survice, but with a lot of TLC from the vet's staff, she recovered. Long story short, she was never returned to the shelter. Missy is a very vocal cat with the most beautiful silky coat I have ever seen--it actually looks wet. I have wondered if she might be part Bengal. She loves people, especially children, and is an excellent mouser.

The other kitty in my photo gallery is my 20 year old sister, KitKat! We ran out of room in our account to add her profile!

WOW! What a groovy and awesome way to wake up after pawtying the day before Celebrating my Adoptiversary of 7 years on 6/10 and then winning my 6th Cat of the Day Badge on 6/11!

I had such a wonderful time having you stop in to help me Celebrate both days and all the sweetest smelling flowers, pretty and colorful balloons, so many different Piñatas and other cool gifts you have given! You're the bestest furrriends any kitty could ever have! Even momma gave me xtra treats both days!

I heard momma telling dad saying how I'm such a tiny black 6 pound baby girl and still looks like a kitten. My fur baby (Q. Sylvr Tuff) is twice the size of me and she's an all silvery blue gray. We love to play together til she gets too rough then I get hissy! MOL!

My SPECIAL Thank You goes to Momma for making my beautiful COTD Frame for my picture!

Thank You again sweet furrriends, for coming to help me Celebrate both days!

What a wonderful surprise, seeing my furry face in the COTD window Monday, especially since we are not online on the weekends. Thank you to those who came by my page Sunday to visit as your votes led to me winning my 10th COTD. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

When we joined CC on November 9, 2006 I was just 8 months old and we had no idea how Cat Channel would change our lives. We have met so many wonderful furiends, some of whom are no longer on CC and sadly some have crossed the Bridge. We treasure each & every furiend we have made here as you have enriched our lives beyond belief. We still enjoy blogging about 2 or 3 times a week, sharing stories & our daily lives. We can only hope that CC will exist for a very long time.

I am honored to join K Rhoamin as the only two who have won 10 COTDs, plus I have also received the most votes (over 90,000) on CC. These honors were possible because of you, my wonderful furiends. In appreciation of your furiendship, here is a goody bag just for you to join in my celebration. Inside it, you will find some Pawty Mix Cheesy Craze Crunch treats, a piece of my Blue Buffalo Wild Delights salmon cake, and a Hexmouse toy. Hope you enjoy these goodies & thanks for coming to my pawsome pawty!

With Happy Happy Joy Joy Royal Purrs,

There is a low powerful rumble all around!
Is it Thunder, an Earthquake? Maybe Distant Jets? No it's the sound of Twelve Powerful Harley motorcycles!

The Hairballz Rainbow Riders are ready to begin the rides for the day, and Talley checks her tablet for the list of visits they need to make! She smiles broadly, puts her Electra Glide in Gear, and says, “Our first visit is to the Cat Of The Day” She leads the riders out on to the highway!
It's not a long ride and they pull into Missy's driveway. She has heard the commotion of the big Harleys arriving at the front door. Missy went to see what it was and she calls back into the house, “Wow we have visitors, Come see who it is mom!”
The Hairballz remove their helmets revealing the happy faces of Queen Talley, Angel Beast, Cyndee, Zoe Monique, Coco, Maggie Meme, King Winston, Kali, Possum A Q Mallow, Mojo Blackbear and Queen Lola.
The Hairballz all shout, “CONGRATULATIONS, Missy, ON YOUR COTD". Talley said, “That really is a great profile picture on your page.
Q Lola brings a huge basket of treats and toys to Missy and Winston has the big Hairballz Poster signed by all of the riders. Talley presents her with a chilled bottle of catpagne and a two pound tin of Beluga Caviar. Talley says, “This the best Caviar that Russia produces. You can share it with your family
Finally, Maggie Meme, brings a wrapped gift box and whispers, “Open it now!”
needing no further encouragement Missy tore the wrappings off to find that a lovely Rolex watch engraved on the back with the date and the phrase “Cat Of The Day!” Missy laughed in delight! He began to hug Talley and the rest of the Hairballz saying, “You're all the best friends, Thank You All !
The Riders cheer and begin applauding!
She put on her new watch and smiles happily as the riders all surround her in a big group hug.
Talley says, Okay Hairballz, time to hit the highway.
They mount up and soon are disappearing down the highway
Missy watches and waves until they are out of sight!

hello Missy and family
THERAPY CATS - DAY 5...OR 6???
i'm never going to keep things straight if i5 keeps doing this! of well..i am just thankful to be able to be here with all of you...
some of you have asked about Certification..well..here it is...

Certification for Therapy Cats.
A variety of organizations train and certify pet therapy teams (that’s you and your cat, by the way!). Pet Partners is one of the most well-known national organizations that facilitates and promotes animal-assisted therapy and offers training and registration for therapy animal teams.Love on a Leash is another national organization. Some areas have local organizations, like the Miami Valley Pet Therapy Association in Troy, Ohio.
To find the best option in your neck of the woods, search the Internet or check with your local humane society.
This is really where the rubber meets the road because if your cat isn’t calm, friendly and comfortable with a situation that could be unpredictable at times, then she may not make a good therapy cat.
You want your cat to be used to lots of people handling them without any upset. If you have a cat who is retired from the show ring, this may be a perfect fit because they are used to different handlers taking care of them before a large show.
Once you have established that you and your cat meet the organization’s requirements, you can undergo training. This training course can either be in person or, occasionally, online. Before you’re certified, you will need to pass an in-person exam with an evaluator before you are permitted to do supervised visits to facilities. Once you’ve passed through probation, your cat will be certified to bring happiness to those who need it most.

now..everone..breathe...breathe...breathe...JoJo

thank you for your kind words..i am hoping to generate some interest in all of our furiends..maybe one of us will take the plunge and become a Therapy Cat...

hello GMG and GMG2
THERAPY CAT'S - Day 1
*yawning* jo jo wakes up slowly, thinking of a nice breakfast..then opens her eyes wide..oh no! today's the day! she scrambles up..runs to find her secretary..her Mom..then hops up and down excitedly.."Mom!..QUICK..i have to tell all my furiends all about THERAPY CATS!

and so it begins my furiends.....

A therapy cat is defined as a cat trained to help ailing humans in a medically beneficial way to take advantage of the human-animal interaction for purposes of relaxation and healing. A therapy cat provides affection and comfort to people in retirement homes, nursing homes, schools, hospices, and other human service care facilities.
Emotional Support Animals or Comfort Animals are often used as part of a medical treatment plan as therapy animals. These animals provide companionship, relieve loneliness, and sometimes help with depression and certain phobias, but do not perform tasks that assist people with disabilities.
Although dogs have more traditionally been recruited as therapy animals, and horses are the second most favored, cats are being used more and more. Animals help people heal. They reduce loneliness, depression, and anxiety. They can improve our heart health and get us to exercise more. That's why many hospitals and nursing homes have programs that bring in dogs and cats and other animals for patients to interact with.

does anyone ever doubt that? i hope you all will be entertained this month..some days will be interactive which means You will be required to do some of the work..but i hope you enjoy the little exercises...

now..to breakfast! JoJo

ps..it's nice to meet you all..thank you for your kind words of support.

Thank you for pouncing by.....
to help me celebrate my 6th birthday on January 29th &/or COTD on the 30th! I loved seeing each of you & deeply appreciate the loving hugs, sweet purrs, beautiful balloons, delicious cakes/cupcakes, & other meowvelous goodies that you brought over for both pawties. The extra sweet icing on the cake was winning COTD on the 30th....which happened because of all the birthday votes you left me! Thank you for helping me celebrate both of these special days dear furiends!
********************************************
Happy Groundhog Day!! The annual critter prediction is an early spring...woohoo!! As mild as the winter has been for us we're not surprised but will be keeping our paws crossed that he's right!
I will continue as the family blogger this month since our angel dog took all of my time last month doing his campaign. It was worth it though because he's now King Angel Spike! If you'd like to see him just go to dogChannel.com & click on the Club Dog tab on the far right. You don't have to be a member to do that much...MOL! He'll still be posting a daily blog but won't be visiting as many pages...especially since the format over there allows all of his friends to see the post via notifications. Anyway.....

Patches is doing 100% better since she's being fed wet food (small amounts) several times a day & taking her nutritional supplement. She's got a bounce in her steps again & is back to giving us the 'just try it & get whacked' look...MOL!
The rest of us ornery girls are doing great too but we are looking forward to spring so we can have some open windows to sit in. It's just not the same chirping at birds through triple pane glass...MOL!

Well I've got to run for now because rain/thunderstorms are moving our way & mom doesn't allow us on her laptop in nasty weather. Thank you again for sharing my birthday & COTD winning days last week!!

Happy purrs,
Q Trixie & NICE Crew

♥ OM Kittilicious! That's me in that Famous Window for the Cat of the Day! What a sweet surprise when mom received an email this morning 1/23/2016 from Cat Channel Headquarters to let her know of my COTD win #4!

♥ Who knew that me getting into a fight with Diego & Mystree would help me get another pretty Badge? I'm doing good and mom still has soreness from her fall, but she's getting better.

♥ Thank you for the yummies, treats, pretty flowers and balloons, piñatas as well for the awesome presents, but mostly coming to help me party!

Purrs and hugs, Spanky
