Hi Sweet Mittens & Family, It's me, Talley
All Aboard!
Today we will be taking a ride on a train. Our passenger cars are beautifully restored turn of the century luxury cars and we will be dining in style in a fully equipped dining car. Our train will pulled by a 1905 Baldwin Steam locomotive. I have invited all of the residents of the new shelter to join us and I would appreciate any efforts on your part to make them feel comfortable on our trip. I think they might be a little nervous about going on a train, but I know that with your encouragement and friendship we can show them how to relax and enjoy the trip.
Where will be going you ask, (Our perhaps you didn’t, but I’ll tell you anyway.) We’ll be traveling to Colonial Williamsburg, for sightseeing and shopping. We’ll learn about the early days of our country and how the colonists created our nation. Some of our ancestors came over with the very first colonists and they protected the scarce supplies of stored food from the marauding mice and rats. You might even say that we kitties were responsible for the survival of the colonists.
We’ll be visiting a colonial schoolhouse where docents in period costume will show us how the students learned what they needed to know to thrive and prosper in revolutionary America. Then on to the homes of notable founding fathers where we’ll meet Dolly Madison, the seamstress who created our first Stars and Stripes. Following our visits to these houses we’ll visit the crafts shops see how the blacksmiths, cabinet makers, weavers and carpenters made all of the goods that were essential in day to day life, in early America.
Getting hungry? We have reservations at Christana Campbell’s Tavern an accurate recreation of an upscale dining establishment from colonial days. I’ve taken the liberty of ordering for us to save time. Hope you like seafood. Here’s our menu;
The Waterman’s Lunch
A three-course meal starting with a cup of the Eastern Shore Clam Chowder
followed by a dish of gridiron-cooked Salmon, with a Shrimp and Scallop Brochette
adorning a bed of Rice Pilaf with a Lemon Dill Cream, ending with your choice of fresh baked fruit pie. (Apple, Blueberry, Peach or Strawberry)
Following our adventures in Colonial Williamsburg, we’ll return to our waiting train in horse drawn carriages and have dinner in style in the dining car.
The adventure will take place on the Cat’s Meow Resort Page (271826) at any time, (no live blogging.)
I hope you’ll join us for this fun filled outing!
Purrs and friendly headbumps,
Your Servant,
Queen Talley

Hi Mittens & family!
Well, this IS a surprise! Mom has had a lot of "surprise" COTD winners lately. In fact, almost all of them this year. So, now it's our turn! Yippee! I hope everyone brought their swim suits because we're having one last fling with the slip-n-slid before we roll it up for the season. Then a nice outdoor potluck and maybe campfire songs later. There's still some moon out at night, so don't be scared. Besides, we have the campfire to scare away the vampires.

What? Wait a minute. *psst psss ffft pssst* Oh. *frown* My brother just told me campfires do NOT keep the vampires away. So, well, then. I guess we'll have to invite some werewolves. Maybe that'll do it! But no matter what, have a great time and don't forget to take a goody bag before you head home. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Sweet Mittens & Family, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 31
I hope that the ideas and suggestions that I’ve presented during the month have proven helpful. I want to especially thank those of you who took the time to send me ideas that I could share with our friends.
This has been a remarkable month for me and my family.
You’ve sent me so many votes, so many kind words and wishes, so much love. When I was little more than a kitten, (it was back in the day of the shout out COTD catpaigns.) I was nominated for COTD, and as I sat with dad that evening he read me the notes that kitties had sent along with their votes. I kind of got a vision of what was happening and Pete asked me what I was thinking.
This is what I told him; “I just had a vision of what is happening tonight, Pete. Kitties and their families from all over the world are reading about me and sending me votes. What is a vote? Well, it’s easy to think that it’s just a click on a computer, but I think it’s much more. In my mind’s eye I see the world as though I’m looking at it from space. The whole world is a beautiful orb, with no lines marking off the different countries. I see the votes as little yellow scrolls tied with a bit golden ribbon. They seem to be floating up toward me from individual homes. As they rise they join others rising from neighborhoods and the streams of votes from neighborhoods combine to for large streams from cities, and then from states, they flow together to form rivers of sparkling yellow and gold. They make a river of love and caring. Each one is a message of friendship.
The big rivers combine and form rushing torrents of love and goodwill. As the world rotates beneath me I can see that the votes are rising from all over the globe and that powerful rush of love and good will circles the globe and then it all comes rushing down onto our house.
I feel so loved! CC is a very special place and a vote is so much more than just a click.”
All of these years later, I still think your votes are much more than clicks!
My life truly has been blessed. I was rescued by my dad when I was a tiny sick kitten, and I have been loved and nurtured every day of my life. My brother and sisters love me and treat me with kindness and respect. I’ve made many friends here on CC and I met the most wonderful cat in the whole world, my wonderful husband K Whiskers.
I hope with all of my heart that some of the ideas that I’ve presented, can help other kitties to find the kind of life that I have been blessed with. Thank you all so very much!
See you tomorrow evening for a Coronation Celebration.

HOLY
( by K MacVitie)
The peace and joy you give me, no words can ever tell,
The lessons that you teach me, in my heart will always dwell,
Your purrs bring forth divinity, to comfort, heal and bless,
Wondrous being, praise to you for your gracious loveliness.

Love,
Talley

sleepover tomorrow night/water fun games wed
we know that too and have already seen flocks of robins flying southwards in the late afternoons/evenings as young ones which were born this year are sticking around for now and others are feeding frenzy getting in berries and things before their long flights are also coming up and local birds are stocking up for the colder months ahead. that's one thing we're all NOT looking forwards to, but have to go through it each year and once the leaves turn and fall that's it the colder months and snow aren't to far behind. old farmers almanac is saying our first snowfall as early as either the 9th or 15th of october this year, but we'll have to wait and see. a nice quiet weekend here janet got the sheets/pillow cases done and in yesterday as well as shelling the limas and cutting up the string beans as well as cooking them up for supper tonight mixed with pasta and ham how's that for a nice cool change? sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Sweet Mittens & Family, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 29
Today we take a break in the catpaign, to make an announcement,
Queens Maggie and Angel Ginger have agreed that the Coronation shall take place on Tuesday September 1st beginning at 7:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time. The ceremony will take place on the Cat’s Meow Resort, (271826). Following the ceremony there will be a reception for all kitties. There will be a delicious menu, Music and Dancing until the wee hours (or until everyone is tired and goes to sleep)
I have to say, It has been an honor and a pleasure to Catpaign this month, and I am so overwhelmed with your support and kindness. I will try to be a good Queen and serve you well.
And now a poem:

Cat-Proofing
Like God keeps His eye upon the sparrow,
I keep my eye upon the cat,
For unlike the little sparrow,
I’m not sure just where she’s at.
She knows the couch is out of bounds,
Yet invariably she goes there,
She ignores the yellow warning tape,
I’ve wound around it, in despair.
I know she likes electric cords,
She pulls them from the wall,
I’ve told her fifty million times,
THAT’S NOT ALLOWED AT ALL!
The wires are rewired now,
To shriek like fire sirens,
If she so much as puts a paw
Anywhere near their environs.
She treats the kitchen counter,
As a fun place on which to glide,
Though it’s purposely lubricated
To make her slip and slide.
When I booby-trapped the cupboards,
I thought, “A-ha! I’ve stopped her now!”
But fearlessly she enters,
And does not blow up, somehow.
Some cat owners keep baskets
Of balls of yarn upon the floor,
My basket’s filled with hand grenades,
Which she bats around ’til she gets bored.
Alternate pencils on my desktop,
On impact will explode,
She always kicks the safe ones off,
How ever does she know?
There’s nothing wrong with cat food,
It’s made special, just for cats,
But she wants steak and baked potato,
GET DOWN! GET OFF MY TABLEMAT!
Just once I’d like to wear a dress,
Not accessorized with cat hair,
But plastic bags do not protect,
How does she get inside there?
I firmly speak; my voice is loud,
Sometimes I fairly SHOUT!
But, somehow her cat meows,
Are loud enough to drown me out.
I tell her time and time again,
CUT OUT THAT LOOKING CUTE!
It would help so much when I yell at her,
If she looked more like a brute.
Her attention span is not too long,
Just long enough to drive me wild,
I’m convinced she had some lessons,
From a clever, spoiled child.
I doubt God’s little sparrows,
Give Him trouble quite like mine,
But He can’t hold them in His lap,
Or hug them any time.
Oh, I suppose it is a tradeoff,
And I do get some relief,
Like when she’s curled up on the couch
Behind the yellow tape, asleep.
I think to master cat control,
Is a fine, accomplished art,
I’ve learned I can cat-proof my house,
But I can’t cat-proof my heart.
I love you all,
Talley

Hi Sweet Mittens & Family, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 28
We have a short blog and a long poem today.
I wanted to mention another way to help shelters. It’s something that dad has been doing for quite a while, and we almost forgot to mention it to you. It’s easy, doesn’t cost anything and provides funding for almost any charity that you can think of.
Most of us order things from Amazon, and they have a program called Amazon Smile. You sign up, and then whenever you make a purchase a, small donation is made to the charity you selected.
The small amounts add up, our local “No More Homeless Pets’ told us that they receive almost two hundred dollars a month.
Just a thought, and now our poem....
WHY OWN A CAT
There's a danger you know.
You can't own just one, for the craving will grow.
There's no doubt they're addictive, wherein lies the danger
While living with lots, you'll grow poorer and stranger
One cat is not trouble, and two are so funny,
The third one is easy, the fourth one's a honey
The fifth is delightful, the sixth ones's a breeze.
You find you can live with a houseful, with ease.
So how 'bout another? Would you really dare?
They're really quite easy, but Oh Lord, the hair!
With cats on the sofa and cats on the bed,
And crates in the kitchen, its no bother, you said.
They're really no trouble, their manners are great.
What's just one more cat and one more little crate?
The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty.
The floor is all footprints, the furniture's dusty.
The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care?
Who minds a few noseprints and a little more hair?
So let's keep a kitten, you can always find room.
And a little more time for the dust cloth and broom.
There's hardly a limit to the cats you can add
the thought of a cutback, sure makes you feel sad.
Each one is special, so useful, so funny,
The food bill grows larger, you owe the vet money.
Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay,
Except other cat folks, who live the same way.
Your lawn has now died and your shrubs are dead, too.
Your weekends are busy, you're off with your crew.
There's cat food and vitamins, grooming and shots
And entries and travel and motels, which cost lots.
Is it worth it you wonder? Are you caught in a trap?
Then that favorite comes up and climbs in your lap.
His look says you're special and you know that you will
Keep all of the kittens in spite of the bill.

Late evening is awful, you scream and you shout
At the cats on the sofa, who refuse to get up.
The cats and the cat shows, the travel, the thrills
The work and the worry, the pressure, the bills.
The Whole thing seems worth it, the cats are your life.
They're charming and funny and offset the strife.
Your lifestyle has changed, things just won't be the same.
Yes, those cats are addictive and so's the cat game!

♥ Listen up!!!! You remember that orange Tabby Tomcat that's been hanging around in our back yard???? Well, he's still here and has gained a little weight so he's not so gauntly looking. But guess what???? He finally let mom pet him about a week ago and still lets mom pet him some!!!! Mom was thrilled to achieve that. Mom also gave him a name and is getting him used to hearing it. Mom thought of a few names to fit him and has decided to call him ..... Sonnjae (pronounced Son Jay).
Mom also took lots of pictures of him and added seven (7) into my gallery.

♥ Mom called (Jazpyr's #10428 littermate sister) TOEBEE'S Momma Judy on Thursday afternoon to see how TOEBEE is. She is doing ok and continues to eat and drink water. Momma Judy did find another lump which makes two now.

♥ SAUSHA #22506 has calmed down enough as not to be so scared when mom goes in their room. She comes to mom again as she had in the past before her sickness. She loves the laser light and chases it all around in their room. Dad and mom are impressed by her fastness at it and so cute!!!!

♥ I am feeling lots better, too, and taking my Simplicef antibiotics for mom with no issues. Mom says I'm usually a good boy when taking my meds.

♥ UPDATE ON WHYSKRS #10378
Whyskrs continues to be on his diet even thru all of us that has been sick. Mom has not stopped him on that.
Since April 2, 2015 at his official weight of 25.2 lbs. he now weighed in at 22.3 lbs. on August 17, 2015.

Hi Sweet Mittens & Family, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 27
Today we’re going to discuss a very serious subject; Lost Kitties and how to find to find them. I hope you never need this information!
Top 10 Tips For Finding Lost Cats
1) Not all missing cats are lost. Cats are notorious for hiding in impossible places. Before you assume kitty is missing, make a thorough search indoors. ( I once spent the entire day in mom’s lingerie drawer)
2) If you know your cat is missing, grab your cellphone with a photo of your cat uploaded, flashlight and treats and head out. Wear comfortable clothes and comfortable soft-soled shoes. Hit the streets
3) While you’re searching, ask pedestrians, knock on neighbor’s doors and show the photo. Ask if you can check their garage, sheds, under the porch. To save time, multi-task during the search: leave a missing cat report with your vet, Animal Control, all the other local vets, shelters and rescue groups.
4) When you return home, leave food and water outside your door. Local TNR rescue rescues will often lend a trap. Go outside one last time to check and call your cat’s name before bedtime.
5) If you haven’t already made a missing cat poster, make one. Include: A good photograph, your cat’s name, description, any special identifying marks or collar, when last seen and where (cross street), your phone and e-mail. adding contact info at the bottom of the page cut into four or five vertical strips that can be easily torn off is helpful.
6) Enlist family and friends to help post flyers and spread the word. Have push pins, tape and a staple gun depending on the surface. The best posting spots include street intersection poles, local bulletin boards at grocery stores, library, laundromat and community center.
7) Post missing cats reports at online at Tabbytracker Craigslist, local online newspapers Use social networking like Facebook and Twitter. Ask everyone to share.
8) Visit all your local shelters to look for yourself even if say they don’t have a cat of your description.
9) If you’ve recently moved, extend your search to your old neighborhood.
10) Persevere! Cats have returned weeks and months later. Keep networking, and asking neighbors if they’ve noticed anything. Keep your flyers or posters fresh with a “Still Missing” header.
Today’s poem was selected by my dad!

I Could Pee on This
Her new sweater doesn’t smell of me
I could pee on that
She’s gone out for the day and
left her laptop on the counter
I could pee on that
Her new boyfriend just pushed
my head away
I could pee on him
She’s ignoring me ignoring her
I could pee everywhere
She’s making up for it
by putting me on her lap
I could pee on this
I could pee on this
—Charles Bukowski (or maybe his cat.)

Love to you all,

Hi Sweet Mittens & Family, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 26

I'd like to take a moment, before we begin today’s blog, to thank every one of you, who took the time to come by and offer your support during my catpaign. I feel like I've learned a lot from all of you, and I hope I've offered you some ideas you may not have thought of before. I truly am grateful for your comments, ideas and help.
Well, tonight, I'll address a subject that I probably should have mentioned before. That is “spreading the word.” Shelters have wonderful kitties just waiting for someone to love. There are lots of people who feel lonely and troubled whose lives could be transformed for the better by a furry companion. How do we get them together? Advertising is the answer. It’s effective, but expensive. There is free publicity though, It is through the news media. It can be as simple as writing letters to the editor of your local newspaper, or it can involve establishing a rapport with local television and promoting shelter adoptions. Remember, there are lots of loving kitties available at a much lower cost than going to a breeder or pet shop. (dad has a hard time going to PetSmart on weekends because he always wants to bring all of the kitties home. The important thing though is to get the word out. People who live with pets live longer healthier lives than those who don't. Alley Cat Allies has a media primer on the website and it offers great ideas and sample letters and news releases. The address is http://www.alleycat. org/NetCommunity/Page.aspx?pid=373 . So, to get started, let's resolve to write at least one letter to the newspaper during the month of my reign.

Regarding the Coronation Ball, We still need to arrange the details with Queens,Angel Ginger and Maggie, but one thing is certain. Every one of the kitties on CC is invited to the CMR resort on September 1st, to celebrate at the Coronation Ball, There will be a speech (a very short one, I promise) and wonderful food, , and there will be dancing too. I want to purrsonally shake paws and hug each and every one of you.


And now today, something a little different:

An Old Russian Prayer
Hear our prayer Lord, for all animals,
May they be well-fed and well-trained and happy;
Protect them from hunger and fear and suffering;
And, we pray, protect specially, dear Lord,
The little cat who is the companion of our home,
Keep her safe as she goes abroad,
And bring her back to comfort us

And a poem

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray this cushy life to keep.
I pray for toys that look like mice,
And sofa cushions, soft and nice,
For grocery bags where I can hide,
Just like a tiger, crouched inside!
I pray for gourmet Kitty snacks,
And someone nice to scratch my back,
For window sills all warm and bright,
For shadows to explore at night.
I pray I’ll always stay real cool,
And keep the secret feline rule
To NEVER tell a human that
The world is really ruled by CATS!


I love you all,
Talley

Hi Sweet Mittens & Family, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 25
Yesterday was a wonderful day here in Jacksonville. It was 85 and not a cloud in the sky. We didn’t get any thunder boomers either. There was a nice breeze and we got to play in the screened patio while mom & dad worked in the flower beds. Dad has a couple of square foot gardens, and he took some of the tired tomato plants out and put in some lettuce, parsley, beans, and CATNIP. Mom planted flowers, in the front yard beds and down the driveway beds.

Today, I’d like to tell you about an Alley Cat Allies program that helps community awareness of the needs that stray and feral kitties have. It's called Every Kitty – Every City.

http://www.alleycat.org/EveryKittyEveryCity

This what Alley Cat Allies says about the program:
Through the Every Kitty – Every City program, we raise awareness and educate the community in targeted cities about outdoor cats, feral cat colony care, Trap-Neuter-Return, and the importance of accessible, affordable neuter services through workshops, outreach programs, and organizing.

The Every Kitty – Every City program provides individuals, groups, and veterinary professionals in the community with the tools and basic knowledge needed to serve as a community resource. As part of the program, Alley Cat Allies rallies and assists community volunteers, local groups, and private shelters to enhance their already existing Trap-Neuter-Return programs or to seamlessly launch new ones.
Alley Cat Allies sponsors workshops, open to the public, for advice and instruction on the best practices of Trap-Neuter-Return and colony care. We also recruit and help train local veterinary professionals on high-volume, low-cost techniques that will increase the availability of affordable neuter services including early-age spay/neuter and vaccination protocol. To start a program in your city, contact one of the existing programs, Or contact Alley Cat Allies!
This program was vital in establishing the TNR program of No More Homeless Pets, here in Jacksonville.

And now, a funny poem for today:

All I Need To Know About Life
I Learned From My Cat

Life is hard, and then you nap.
One day ignore people, the next day annoy them.
When in doubt cop an attitude.
Curiosity never killed anything except maybe a few hours.
Climb your way to the top, that's why the drapes are there.
Never sleep alone when you can sleep on someone's face.
If you're not receiving enough attention,
try knocking over several expensive lamps.
Make your mark in the world or at least spray each corner.
When you go out into the world, remember:
being placed on a pedestal is a right, not a privilege.

Thank you so much for your love and support! I love you all,
Talley

So pawsomely quiet in the house...
that I finally get to meow at everyfur!! Thank you for pouncing by to celebrate my adopty day with me on the 20th...& for the catgrats on my being COTD on the 21st! I enjoyed all of your blogs, the wonderful gifts, beautiful balloons, scrumptious goodies & your loving purrs of furiendship. Thank you SO much for sharing my 2 special days with me!!

It was a super busy weekend with the 1 year old grandson crawling all around the house but we survived...MOL! He was a very good boy the entire weekend but he's getting harder to keep up now that he's crawling so fast. He was standing on his own too so pretty soon the crawling will stop & walking/running will start. Then the real fun will begin for his mommy & daddy...MOL!
Mom managed to get her free windows 10 upgrade done while he was here but is just now getting programs installed to open her files. So far she likes it (except for the mail program) so thinks she'll keep using it instead of reverting back to her old operating system. She's already downloaded the mail program she likes, a word & excel program to open her transferred files, installed her new printer & connected everything (via cloud) to her phone to make things faster & easier. She's not sure everything is 'normal' yet but I'm sure she'll find out soon enough if she's missing anything important...MOL!

JJ has returned to the great outdoors...although reluctantly because he loved the attention he got in here...MOL! He's been staying close to home & has been avoiding Bartholomew as much as he can so hopefully he can keep himself out of trouble for a while. His fur has all grown back now that his wounds are completely healed. He's still nervous about noises & unexpected things but purrhaps that will make him more cautious about getting into or going places he isn't supposed to. Keeping my paws crossed on that one...MOL!
Our 2 outside kittens (Libby aka Nibby Libby & her brother Sundance) are doing great & are growing like little weeds. The rest of the outside crew are doing fine too but they're not liking our cooler temps this week.

Well I've got to get going for now so I can bake an anniversary cake for Fluffinella & Joey's 1st year together...& also one for mom & dad who will be celebrating 37 years of wedded bliss tomorrow too. I probably won't be doing anything but voting tomorrow but I'll be back again later in the week. Thanks again for celebrating my adopty day & COTD award winning days with me!!

Big paw hugs,

sleepover tonight/water fun tomorrow
you all will need rain gear here today as we have a slow moving cold front moving on in and well round one stayed to the west on the other side of the ct. river into the berkshires and more coming in later on as the morning and afternoon progresses along. janet and nat got their errands done yesterday morning and now that it's done janet can come home or drive home at a snails pace if it's torrential downpours like the one she and nat got caught in coming home last friday from grocery shopping now that was something, but again beats just what's around the corner in 3-4 months time hate thinking of it already, but predictions are leaning more towards what we had here last winter, don't want/need another like that! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Sweet Mittens & Family, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 24
We never want to think about disasters, but we need to be prepared, (or should I say Purrpared). The ‘Seniors’, Hot Rod and Ziggy, suggested that we post a blog explaining how to prepare to evacuate our homes, should it become necessary.
They are so right, with the fires raging on the west coast, and the first hurricane of the season threatening the Caribbean, and possibly the mainland US, it’s time we took a look at what we need to do.
Before I do anything else, let me post the Web Address for the ASPCA emergency preparedness Website. Everything you need to do is spelled out there;
(Please eliminate any spaces that CC puts into the web addresses)
https://www.aspca.org/pet-care/disaster-preparedne- ss
What is important is that you look at it now and prepare a kit to use when you need it. Basically, you need food, water, bowls, litter and emergency supplies for at least three days. (More is better.) We’ve already discussed first aid kits, but if any of you kitties need medication, that needs to be in the kit too.
Next you need a place to stay. Not all shelters will take pets, so here is a website that provides information on pet friendly hotels:
http://www.pet-friendly-hotels.net/
I know it can be scary to think about having to leave your home, but just think about how scary it would be to be in your home during a fire or a hurricane or a flood. When the emergency is over, use the perishable supplies and replenish your go-kit so that you’re always prepared for the unexpected.
The family needs to be prepared, that means the whole family including the four legged members.
Thanks again to Hot Rod and Ziggy for suggesting this topic.
And now our poem;
Cats
There was a spry woman
who lived next door.
She had cats in the attic
and cats on the floor.
There were cats where she ate
and cats where she slept,
And she dearly loved all
the cats that she kept.
At night she tucked each
in a wee little bed,
But they all much preferred
to wander instead.
The ripped through the screens
and battered through holes.
They climbed up the chimney
and slid down clothes poles.
They made a great racket
and scurried around.
They jumped from the roof
to the fence to the ground.
When the night was over,
at the crack of dawn,
The cats came home
with a sigh and a yawn.
They were quiet and docile
and gentle as silk
And came a-begging
for morning milk.
The neighbors were furious,
frustrated, and frantic,
Refusing to stand for
another cat antic.
When they came to complain,
they were offered a treat.
The cats were all kittenish,
playful, and neat.
They blinked and stretched
and purred on their mats.
Who would believe
there were the same cats?
By (Dorothy Golub)
Love to you all, dear friends,
Talley

Hi Sweet Mittens & Family, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 23

Dad received a solicitation in the mail from the Humane Society of the United States. And while he feels that they don’t get enough of each contributed dollar to shelters, he found some of the ideas here worthwhile. (dad prefers to support Alley Cat Allies and local shelters) but here are ten Ideas from HSUS.

1. Tell the world how you feel about your local shelter or rescue by using The Humane Society of the United States' Facebook share graphics.
2. Get to know your local shelters and rescue groups. Start the process by locating all of the ones in your area. You may be surprised how many groups nearby are helping animals.

3. Learn before you leap. Before you adopt, go to the Shelter Pet Project to learn what to expect when adopting a pet. You'll be much less likely to become frustrated and return your new pet if you understand the challenges and rewards of adopting a pet beforehand.

4. Say Thanks, Take a minute to express your gratitude to the people who work at your local shelter or rescue groups. If you've adopted a pet from one of them, show how well your pet is doing by sharing an updated picture via a letter, email, or posting it on the organization's Facebook page or website.

5. Get Crafty. Combine fabric, yarn, recyclables, and imagination to bring much-needed fun into the lives of local shelter and rescue pets. There's no end to the toys you can make. Try braiding strips of fleece into fun for dogs, or cutting and folding a surprising household object into a cat distractor.

6. Become a “Fan”. Like" the Shelter Pet Project on Facebook. Then, if possible, "like" the individual groups in your community, too.

7. Make wishes come true. Shelters and rescue groups always need towels, toys, and other supplies. Check their websites for wish lists or call them to find out what's in short supply.

8. Volunteer, if you can!

9. Help by helping your own pets, Microchip, tag and keep them safe!

10. Help local shelters make positive changes. If you see or hear anything at your local shelter that concerns you, follow The HSUS's guidelines for addressing that concern in the most effective way.

Nothing new here, but just a reminder.

And now, I have a short, funny little poem for us today:

You will find that feeding a cat is no easy task
What's the big problem you may well ask
Just open a tin and feed them from that
It is obvious my friend you don't own a cat
When outside they will eat a fly or a mouse
But things soon change when they dine in the house
Your fridge might be full of meat, poultry and fish
But what do you put in your fussy Cats dish
For to keep a Cat fed we beg, steal and borrow
Because what we give them today they won't want TOMORROW.

I love you all, dear friends,
Talley

Hi Sweet Mittens & Family, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 21

Even though today’s blog is off of our topic, I wanted to share this. I just have a family story and a poem for you. The poem and the story together, are kind of long so I’ll get right to it;
~~~~~~~~~~~~

In the days after my sister Angel Lucy Fur crossed the Rainbow Bridge, my dad was inconsolable. He missed her terribly and he just couldn't seem to get over the heartache. They had been best friends for seventeen years and Lucy was very precious to him.
Whenever he would go to bed, He imagined that he could feel her jump up to share his pillow, as she always had. He'd reach up to feel her soft fur and he'd find only emptiness on the pillow and in his heart.
It was a week after Lucy died that dad had a remarkable dream. He said it was so real he felt that he was really there. In his dream, he heard a soft scratching at the front door and when he opened it, there was a big black cat at the door just sitting quietly. The cat turned and looked away from the house toward the little memorial garden where Lucy had been buried. There were dozens of cats there, all looking so radiantly beautiful in the afternoon sunlight that they seemed to shine from within, with a light of their own. Sitting in the very front of the gathering, was Lucy. She looked at dad and slowly winked her eyes at him. Then, with a swish of her tail, she turned away and led the cats down into the back garden, fading away as they went. Dad awoke from that dream with tears in his eyes, but he knew that Lucy had come back to say a final goodbye and to let him know she was ok and that she would be waiting for him..........
Dad could hardly manage to tell mom about the dream, he kept choking up, but mom found this poem for him. He copied it in very small print, and still carries it in his wallet.
Here is that special poem that dad copied back in 2008;

*Thud* as you hear,
A cat jump down,
Turn around to check,
Nothing there,
*Meow* goes a cat,
Where from?
I don't see,
Something wrapping around your legs,
Go away Smokey,
You look down nothing there,
*Jump* as the bed bounced,
The cat jumped on the bed,
But you look....there's no cat,
*creak* goes the door,
The cat sneaked out,
But no cat to be seen,
You hear a cat eating/drinking,
But there's no bowls or cat,
Whats making these noises?
There's no cat, not no more,
He died on 20th May,
so what makes these movements?
Not the dog he's too noisy,
Could it be Smokey's spirit?
To say he's ok?
Or is it just your mind playing tricks,
Making you think he is still around.

By Stacey Olner

Hi Mittens!
Thanks for stopping by and congratulating us for this MOST unexpected COTD honor! We totally never saw this one coming. And neither did mom! I guess these "out of the blue" things are even more special, especially when we have all our special CC friends to share it with. We hope you enjoyed helping us celebrate as much as we enjoyed having you! We brought you a nice goody basket and a thank you vote tied to a balloon!

Hi Sweet Mittens & Family, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 20
Today's topic is Reliable Cat Health Information and the Cornell University Feline health Center. They have some great information on Cat Health Topics, in general, and in particular their Spay Neuter program, but the article is quite lengthy, So I'm giving the web address and asking that you stop by and check out the site. It would take several CC Blogs to print it here so I think this is the best way to bring it you. The Address is: www.vet.cornell.edu/fhc.

This is a funny story that I would like to share with you about my brother Pete. When he was just a little kitten he had some kind of immune deficiency that caused his paw pads to crack and bleed. Our vet first diagnosed it as chemical burns, which dad knew wasn’t right. Finally our vet referred Pete to a Feline Dermatologist. His name was Dr. Bishop. He was a Graduate of Cornell.
He took one look at Pete’s little pink paws and said that he had Eosinophilic Granuloma Complex. He said that kittens grew out of it as their immune systems developed, but untreated, the normal course was to develop a serious and sometime fatal infection.

Pete had to have his paws cleaned with a special medicine three times a day and take antibiotic pills morning and evening. Pete was a very mellow kitten, and after the third day he realized that he would get treats for taking his medicine, all dad had to do was put the pills down on his plate and Pete would eat them and then look for his treats. On one of his recheck visits, dad showed Dr. Bishop how easy it was to get Pete to take his medicine. Dr. Bishop thought it was amazing, and asked if he could borrow Pete to show to the class that he taught at the University of Florida. Dad said no, that he couldn’t borrow Pete, but that he would bring Pete to class.
Dad was a little worried that Pete might not do his pill trick in front of a hundred Veterinary Students, but he didn’t even seem to notice them. He took his pills, the class erupted in laughter and Dr. Bishop told his students that giving cats medicine didn’t have to be hard, it just required a gentle touch and love.
I hope that made you smile.

Tonight's Poem is a short one by Mary F. of North Carolina; Ms. Murphy picked it for us.
Here it is:

I found a small kitty
so tiny and scared.
I don't know who dumped her
or how she has fared.

She's cold, wet and skinny
such a pitiful sight.
I suspect she has been out here
for many a night.

How could someone dump her?
It seems such a pity.
Some people are cruel
to poor helpless kitties.

Come with me little kitty
I'll make everything right.
You will no longer be hungry
or cold at night.

Your life will be better.
All the love you can stand.
No more neglect for you.
Only a kind, gentle hand.

Love to all of you,
Talley

Hi Sweet Mittens & Family, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 19
We had some very good news today. The results from the Animal Rescue Shelter Challenge were announced, and Angel Easy’s shelter won a thousand dollar grant. All of those clicks paid off. They have won a nice award.
Now that we’re on a roll, let’s all get behind the Zoo Crew’s Shelter, and see if we can help them win a grant too. To vote for them just go to the Animal Rescue site Shelter Challenge and do the search for: Humane Society of Midland County in Midland MI.
Even though, the Zoo Crew’s shelter, like the VI Kitty’s is in a very small communities and at a disadvantage in the voting because of that. But guess what, if we add the CC family’s votes to theirs we can make them winners too. Every single click can save a life. The Zoo Crew’s Anya, owes her life to the Humane Society of Midland County, The least we can do is thank them for saving our friend's Anya.
While we’re on the subject of shelters, I’d like to remind everyone, Adopt Don't Buy!
The following information is from The San Francisco ASPCA
When you adopt an animal, you're not just saving the life of the animal you're welcoming into your home& family. You’re giving another animal an opportunity to move to the adoption floor and find a new family. And, you’re reducing the demand that keeps puppy and kitten mills in business. Many people buy from animal mills without realizing that these breeding facilities abuse and neglect their animals.
Each year, millions of unwanted animals enter shelters across America. More than three million cats and dogs are euthanized every year; millions more small animals, like rabbits and hamsters, meet the same fate. Adoption helps break this cycle and put an end to the animal mill industry.
If you would still rather buy than adopt, make sure you buy from a responsible, reputable breeder. Don’t support animal mills!
Responsible breeders are individuals who have focused their efforts on one or a select few breeds. They have become knowledgeable about heritable defects, temperament and behavior1 through breeding, historical research and ongoing study, mentoring relationships, club memberships, showing, raising and training these breeds.

Today’s Poem is called;
Scamp
You've torn the daily paper
Into a million shreds
And tested the comfort
Of all the beds.

Chased my wool
All over the floor
Hissed and spat
At the dog next door,

And proved yourself
So brave and bold
For a tiny kitten
Only six weeks old.

You're now a black
Little fluffy ball
Curled up tight
Asleep in the hall.
By B. Hayes

Purrs and Hugs,
Your furiend always,
Talley

Hi Sweet Mittens & Family, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 18
Today I’d like to tell you about some remarkable cats who help all cats, by being feline ambassadors. These cats are the subjects of bestselling books.
Our dad reads aloud to us and we enjoy it very much. Mom laughs and says we just like the sound of dad's voice.
We recently read A Street Cat Named Bob, and it is a remarkable true story of a cat rescued by a young man who in turn rescued the young man by helping him learn to care for another living soul, and free himself from drug addiction.
Another wonderful read is Homer's Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned about Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat by Gwen Cooper We found it fascinating. Homer triumphed over blindness to save his mom's life from a dangerous burglar and discover the joy of life for himself.
Dewey the Library cat, by Vickie Myron is the story of a wonderful little stray kitten who charmed his way into the hearts of readers around the world and gave a small town pride in itself.
Making rounds with Oscar by Dr. David Dosa is about a kitty who can sense the impending death of elderly patients and bring them comfort in the last hours of their life.
These books are wonderful gifts and great reads. You might check your local library for some of these wonderful stories.

Our poem today is The Naming Of Cats by T. S. Eliot.
Which is from The Book Of Practical Cats, the basis for the Broadway Musical ‘CATS’
~~~
The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn't just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I'm as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.
First of all, there's the name that the family use daily,
Such as Peter, Augustus, Alonzo or James,
Such as Victor or Jonathan, George or Bill Bailey--
All of them sensible everyday names.
There are fancier names if you think they sound sweeter,
Some for the gentlemen, some for the dames:
Such as Plato, Admetus, Electra, Demeter--
But all of them sensible everyday names.
But I tell you, a cat needs a name that's particular,
A name that's peculiar, and more dignified,
Else how can he keep up his tail perpendicular,
Or spread out his whiskers, or cherish his pride?
Of names of this kind, I can give you a quorum,
Such as Munkustrap, Quaxo, or Coricopat,
Such as Bombalurina, or else Jellylorum-
Names that never belong to more than one cat.
But above and beyond there's still one name left over,
And that is the name that you never will guess;
The name that no human research can discover--
But THE CAT HIMSELF KNOWS, and will never confess.
When you notice a cat in profound meditation,
The reason, I tell you, is always the same:
His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation
Of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his name:
His ineffable effable
Effanineffable
Deep and inscrutable singular Name.
~~~
I love you all,
Talley

Hi Sweet Mittens & Family, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 17
Since I got my fur up over the politicians yesterday, I think this would be a good time to talk about making our voices heard. At almost every level of government, when the bureaucrats start looking for ways to trim their budgets the first place they look is animal services.
Dad says politicians think that since animals don't vote, that no one will object to cutting budgets for helping them. It's true that animals don't vote, but people who love animals, do vote and it's very important to let politicians at every level know that messing with animal welfare issues is a vote loser. We need to get our pawrents to make their feelings known to their representatives.
In addition to letting the politicians know how we feel, Letters and emails to Newspapers, TV and Radio outlets can also serve to generate public awareness and even donations to animal welfare organizations. It doesn't take very long to come up with a brief note explaining how important animal welfare is to us, and the appropriate addresses are readily available on the internet.
The wording of these messages should be respectful but firm. Okay! Enough on that, but if you love animals, be proactive and let the world know how important it is to speak for those who can't speak for themselves.
Tonight's poem is new to all of us and was suggested by a friend of mom's at her book club. It was written by one of the volunteers at a rescue facility called Catkins.
There's a small and quite sweet ginger kitten,
found wandering afraid and alone.
He's one of just hundreds like him,
alone and without any home.

Some human just is not looking,
or caring to find where he's gone.
They go out and buy just a new one,
replaced like new toys just for fun.

Now cats they are treated as chattel,
They don't have a value you see.
If one gets let out too early,
they end up as strays, one, two, three.

Old cats that no one is after,
are thrown out like on refuse day.
People get tired of old rubbish,
don't care when they go astray.

Old cats have something to offer,
a dignity which humans have not.
They don't let you down like most people,
and they just put up with their lot.

When cats or when kittens go missing,
there aren't many people who care.
Some folks will ring in the rescue,
to see if they're handed in there.

If you have a cat, or a kitten,
it's yours for years yet to come.
It's your job to care and to love it,
not discard it or lose it like some.

The Country is crawling with kittens,
which people think are good fun,
they soon grow up and get boring,
and end up as strays like this one.

This kitten is called Mr Darcy,
he's safe and he's warm and he's kind.
And now he is living at Catkins,
until a new owner we find.

Please get your cat micro-chipped and neutered, and keep them in at night.
Love to you,
Talley

Hi Sweet Mittens & Family, It's me, Talley
COTM DAY 16

Today we’ll talk about Kitty First Aid – I hope you never need the information I’m sharing today, but as my dad says, Hope for the best, but always be prepared for the worst;
No cat owner should be without a cat first aid kit. You can buy a pre-assembled one (there are quite a few on Amazon) or save some money by building your own and keeping everything in a small toolbox or other container.
Here are the basic components:
• Waterproof box with a secure lid (one with a handle is convenient) in which to stow the items
• Sharp-point tweezers
• Digital rectal thermometer
• Small blunt-point scissors
• Sterile gauze pads
• Rolled sterile gauze
• White surgical tape
• Cotton balls and a roll of cotton padding
• Hydrogen Peroxide (a wound cleanser)
• Sterile eyewash solution (The human version is fine.)
• Antiseptic cleanser
• Hydrocortisone and antibiotic ointment
• Eye dropper
• List of your pet’s medicines (including dosage), and any medical conditions
• A chemical ice pack, or big bag of frozen peas (Keep in your freezer and wrap in a towel before using.)
• Book on cat first aid (Read it before your cat needs first aid.)
• Tape the following telephone numbers to the inside lid: 1) Your vet (including after-hours numbers),2) the phone number, address and map to the nearest pet ER, 3) the phone number of a mobile vet if you don’t have a car, and 4) the ASPCA’s 24/7/365 poison control center: (888) 426-4435
For additional important information, I found an excellent list of first aid instruction and proce-dures which I would consider printing out and adding to the kit. Here is the web address:
http://www.catster.com/cat-health-care/cat-first-a- - id
It gives normal temperatures, respiration rates, heart rates and other vital information you’ll need in an emergency.


On another subject, I made the mistake of reading the news over dad’s shoulder this morning, It was awful!
I read our blogs every day and I see nothing but kindness and caring. If only political leaders all over the world could take an example from us, the CC kitties and pawrents, maybe they could learn to work together to make our world a better place. Whoa! There I go, getting on my soapbox. …...
Today's poem is short but very sweet. I hope you like it. (My sister Ms. Murphy picked this one)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I know my cat’s an angel
For she watches over me.
Slyly, when her eyes seem shut;
At night, when I can’t see.
I know my cat’s an angel
For her ears protect my sleep.
A creak, a squeak, a footfall;
At any noise she’ll leap.
I know my cat’s an angel
For she curls up at my side;
A warning to intruders
That it’s best to run and hide.
I know my cat’s an angel
For although she hasn’t wings
I’m safe and warm beside her,
Wrapped in all the love she brings.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sending, lots of love,
Your friend always,
Talley
