In May 2009,I was diagnosed with Feline Demodicosis, a very rare skin mite that made me itch, scratch & lose my pretty white hair. I was very sick & Mommy thought she was going to lose me. Thankfully, Dr. William, lots of love, & many prayers pulled me through, plus I am a tough, brave boy. I also have interstitial cystitis. I take Resources Urinary Tract Support supplements. Mommy is constantly worried about me.

I am a CC Level 20 Quiz Master and a Top Five Lifetime Quiz Master too. I graduated Magna Felis Laude & received my C.A.T. Degree from Cat College on 7-21-10!

I won "Most Enthusiastic Camper" during Camp Kitty, summer of 2010. My avatar was featured in CC's Newsletter on 10-20-11.

Our mailbox is a handmade kitty who looks like me. Mommy has a pair of purrrsonalized shoes with my picture hand-painted on them. You can see the photos on the bottom of my page.

My favorite tricks and treats are: I trick Mommy into giving me more food! and I really don't like many treats, but I will eat Friskies Pawty Mix. I am allergic to wheat gluten, so we have to watch what I eat very closely.

Where I hang out: I love to nap in my Nana's lap. I am definitely a Nana's boy! I also love to lay in Mommy's recliner and watch the Chicago Cubs. PawPaw covers me up with my little blue blankey. I have lots of different colored knitted & crocheted blankeys.

Sometimes my Nana will take me to Mommy's office - everyone there makes such a fuss over me!!!

My favorite grubs: I don't like much canned food, but I will eat Blue Buffalo Wilderness Wild Delights & Iams Purrfect Delights. I love my Cat Chow Naturals dry. Since I am allergic to wheat gluten, we have to watch what I eat very closely. I weigh 15.10 lbs.

My pet peeves: I really get peeved when I am told "no" (I hate that word)! I cannot stand a closed door. I don't like it when my 2 sisters MerryBelle & Sissy ignore me.
I am scared of loud noises especially thunder.

What I love about my owners: I love my Mommy, Nana, and PawPaw because they gave me a wonderful home with lots of love, food & toys - everything a little boy could want & then some!!! I love to "hug" my 2 sisters, although they don't really enjoy that (I don't understand why)! I am a very lucky little boy (we are lucky to have him, too)! I love to be groomed with my special slicker brush.

My cat hobbies: When I was allowed outside, I loved to chase lizards, chipmunks, birds and bugs. After I was so sick, Mommy makes me stay inside now. I like to play with my gazillion toys, especially my "Catch Me if You Can toy", my wand toys, my Mouse on Wheels & my nano Hexbugs.

I am highly allergic to bee stings. Now that I stay indoors, hopefully those mean bees will leave me alone. I think they just like my pretty white fur.

My girlfuriend is Pollie #11004. She is very purrtty!

Pet motto: I am King of the World!!!

Hi K Casper Todd, Sissy & A Q Merry Belle
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 K Casper Todd, Sissy & A Q Merry Belle

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!

Hi Casper Todd!
Well, here we are, ready for another weekend already. I hope you're feeling better than you did last weekend. Any more barfies? I hope you got rid of that nasty hairball. I get a few, and I have a terrible time, because i don't get barfies very often. I don't even know how! Mom always hears me, because I make a little squeaking noise when I throw up.

We're still in the smoke zone out here, and the winds are picking up for the weekend too, with blowing smoke AND dust! It's gonna get tense. And then, maybe we'll have a T'storm Sunday. We're hoping besides just thunder and lightening we get some rain too! We NEED it!

Thanks bunches, Casper Todd
for helping me celebrate my Adoptiversary and for the catnip balloons with Pawty Mix treats inside. Molly Rose is chasing them ALL over Rainbow Rose Manor!

I can't believe it was eight years ago today I found my forever family and spent that very first night snuggled up with Mom & Dad. That day also made it possible to find this awesome CC family and my forever love Lady Dolly too. What a lucky tom I am!

My thoughts are definitely with my sweetheart's Mom today, this is the first special day since my campaign that Dolly's happy little face hasn't been here to celebrate with me. But I know that she's here in spirit, and her Mom can feel all the loving thoughts and prayers coming her way from all of us. -- Mike

Hi K Casper Todd, Sissy & A Q Merry Belle
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,
Talley

national pet day would honor both the 3 of us and pepper which her day was yesterday or was it the day before no matter. we're all feeling the nice cooler drier temps more like fall for 3 days and back to summer starting this weekend into all of next week with upper 80s and lower 90s but with feels like upper 90s and lower 100s. going to be hard for kids in schools as some up this way don't have air conditioning so its more than likely they'll be running on a half day schedule, don't know though all depends on the school sytems we suppose. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi K Casper Todd, Sissy & A Q Merry Belle
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 Casper Todd
Well....I sure don't know what happened to Summer, but it kinda disappeared for a few days. This morning when we got up it was only 53* out there and only got to 70* for a high today! Gonna be a cool week, but by the weekend we will back in the 80's.

Mom found someone to help her out with the computer desk. It is her neighbor, Brad and he is a strong guy...he works as a bouncer at a night club..he helped out mom before he went to work for the night...he bought her used {NEW to mom} desk inside and took her old one out and put it on the back porch...mom took it all apart and left all the parts on the porch.

Mom got the new desk all set up with her stuff and even got her computer set up and did it right...that was all catfusing with all the wires and hookups, but mom did it and she even got the Internet set up properly...yay for mom!

We were all outside and then it started to rain..not a lot, but it still rained and so we all came inside til it stopped...now it is getting cool again!

Mom is feeling better today..she was feeling kinda funny earlier when she came home, but she was fine...no dizziness or anything, so mom wasn't sure why she felt funny...she goes in for her MRI next week.

You know, it sure gets dark earlier now, doesn't it? It used to stay light til 9:30pm and now it isn't 9:00 and it is dark already..goodness!! Soon it will be Autumn!

Have a pawsome evening!

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

Hi Casper Todd!
Our weekend was pretty good, Mom got herself downstairs and cleaned out a WHOLE bunch more stuff! She moved the photocopier and slid the little short filing cabinet that it used to sit on back under the big shelves that Dad made years ago. Why, she dug all the way back to stuff that hasn't been touched in years and years!

And bonus, when she was clearing out WAY in the back under the shelves in the basement, she found a set of tools that Dad got at the auction years ago. It has 2 rechargable batteries with changeable sander, drill and jigsaw heads. Whether the batteries will charge up we don't know, got to try it and if they don't, then OUT it goes. But if they do, it sure does not belong stuffed in behind a bunch of stuff where we forget we have it!

She also called and made an appointment to take the records & comic books over Thursday afternoon to a guy who buys those things. Dad had tried him a couple of times this year already, but they guy's daughter was getting married and he was up to his eyeballs in the plans for that & said to call back in August.

Then she tried to call Mom Janada but got the message again that the voice mail is full. So it sounds like she`s not feeling well enough to listen to her messages, she`s probably on some pretty heavy-duty pain meds but we can send her lots of loving vibes anyway & that`s what we`re doing. They`ll always get through.

Dear Casper Todd
Thanks for your kind words, and sorry, but Mom has not been up to blogging because she is very sad at what is happening to Janada. We hope that the hospice is able to keep her comfortable.

We are getting along just fine and Lollipop's kitty from Mars photo is at the bottom of my page. Mom got her a pink tunnel bed and pink dishes and I have so far left them alone! We put her "Kitty from Mars" photo on my page. Hugs,
Luigi

Hi Casper T
I am so sorry that you weren't feeling well. I sure am glad you are better now, though. Did you get rid of that nasty hair ball? They are awful, aren't they? Thankfully we have our Moms to comfort us when we aren't feeling well.

I had a nice weekend. Quiet, as usual, but I like it that way. Mom and Aunt M went out Saturday night to celebrate Aunt M's birthday with all of her close friends. There were 19 of them! Then they visited Grammy on Sunday to celebrate with her. Aunt Pat's birthday is only a week after Aunt M's, so they celebrated together. They have been doing that since they were kids.

Hope you have a great day. Be well, my furiend! Purrs and hugs, Spanky

HI CASPER TODD !
So sorry you weren't feeling well. It's nice of your mom to hold you when you aren't feeling good.I can't groom myself as good as I used to having 3 legs. Mom wets a hand towel, wrings it out in another towel so it isn't wet and then she "licks" me all over with that. I'm nice and clean.
It looks like our storm went away. We are still supposed to get some rain ( a lot ) but I haven't seen or felt it yet.
I guess I should let Widget have a few minutes on the computer before mom has to go to bed.
I hope you feel better soon ! Your furend, Mr.Kitty

Hey Casper Todd!
So very sorry you weren't feeling well yesterday. Glad you feel better today. That long hair can cause hair balls. Sometimes if a guy doesn't feel well, he needs his Mom to hold him. I understand. My Mom is getting a late start on CC today. She went grocery shopping this morning and after lunch she sat in the dentist's chair for 1 1/2 hours. He drilled two fillings out & made two temporary crowns. Fortunately the teeth, one upper and one lower, are both on the left side. Her mouth is almost back to normal now. Better her than me! MOL.

Hi K Casper Todd, Sissy & A Q Merry Belle
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,

Hi K Casper Todd, Sissy & A Q Merry Belle
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 Casper Todd!
Gosh, big apologies for being AWOL for so long! Not any real excuse except our secretary has been doing "other" stuff. *sigh* Now I ask you, what could be more important than keeping up with our meow mail??

Anyway, as you may or may not know, Washington state has been on fire for the past month or so. Last night a fire started directly north of us and the wind blew all the smoke down here. Our sky is completely brown this morning. And mom has been coughing a lot too. She's trying to find out exactly where the fire IS! We may have to evacuate, or at least be prepared for it. Right now it seems as if we're okay, but one can't be too cautious!

Hi K Casper Todd, Sissy & A Q Merry Belle
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

Mom is having some computer issues with her tablet and just cannot login to CC from it, but her old iPhone works. Just a pain in the tail to text from the tiny keypad.

Hi K. Casper Todd!
Ah, the good ole days! We remember them well. Angel Frosty was the first one Mom put on CC in October of 2006 and she wasn't too active for the first year or so. When Mom finally started blogging more, Ailene of the Irish Clan helped Frosty get her first COTD. After that it was a lot more fun, as Mom learned her way around. Unfortunately, we don't remember when you were king, but I bet it was lots of fun for you. It was still pretty great until I5 announced that it was eliminating Cat Club. That's when so many of our furiends quit! A few have come back, but not too many. And yes, that's very sad. Mom said at that time, we'd be here until CC pulled the plug. And we're still here!

Well, dear furiend, I have to say goodnight for now, but I'm leaving you a vote and wishes for a very blessed evening and sweet dreams. Take care and I hope you have a wonderful day, tomorrow. Love ya!

HI CASPER TODD, SISSY & Q. A. MERRYBELLE !
Thank you for welcoming Widget. She is a nice cat and has very soft fur. Went we got her, the new shelter manager didn't like cats and she let a bunch go. Mom brought home 5 of them. The shelter manager we have now is a really great guy, he doesn't do stupid things like that. Oh, the shelter is one building away from St.Ursulas where mom works, where I showed up.
Yes, serious health problems change our idea of a good day. It is very hard on the family too. We keep ALL of you in our Prayers.
We sure hope the Danny storm changes course. Right after mom moved to our place there was OMAR and it looked like it was coming right into Coral Bay. It turned at the last minute. Mom gets ready for hurricane season in June. She admits that for the first time in 7 years she is not as prepared as usual, but we could last at least 2 whole weeks off what we have.
A BIG Hug for each of you. Your furend, Mr.Kitty

Hi Casper Todd!
Yes, we've only been on CC since 2009 and we've seen a lot of changes & a lot of friends leaving too. Some of them may come back, some of them for sure won't. We've seen a lot of new friends arriving, too, and we're grateful for them.

We're thinking that CC has probably gotten a little more like it used to be in the early days, with just a small group of active kitties and the COTD's are definitely a surprise again! Yes, you are the King of your family for sure. And a Royal family it is, I checked it out once and there are only three families who have had THREE Royals in the whole history of CC. And yours was the very first to do it!

We're sure glad that you're all still active and that CC is still here! -- Mike

Hi K Casper Todd, Sissy & A Q Merry Belle
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

I think you may be the King of CC.

I like the way CC once was better. I loved the prizes you earned. I'm not so sure I like Cat Fancy becoming Catster and only coming out every other month. But I still do like the magazine.

Today is the day....
that the crawling furless will arrive! He'll be here through Sunday too so I'm a very happy kitty. Too bad my fursisters will get their tails in a fluff about it though...MOL!
I'm sorry I haven't been able to do any meowing at you this week but mom has had a very busy week preparing for his arrival. Since we don't normally have such a small furless around too often she went shopping to make sure we had enough things he could eat & drink (that he likes)...plus she had to get an extra security gate to keep him from tumbling down our family room steps or digging in our litterboxes. Sigh...that means I'll have to jump over one to get to my favorite food dish too. Hmmm...maybe I'll just eat all the food in mom/dad's bedroom instead of trying to get my old self over a gate. It will upset Trixie a little but she'll get over it...& can jump the gate a lot better than I can..MOL!
Mom told Fluffinella she'd better get her romping out of her system since she's terrified of 'the crawling monster' & will retreat to her safe zone under the bed until he's asleep. The rest of my fursisters will wander through to peek, but since they're used to him going home the same day it will shock them when he doesn't leave...MOL!
We're all doing great & are really enjoying this morning because mom was able to open the windows so a cool breeze could blow in. The past few days had been really humid so we're thrilled to get a break from it even if it's probably short lived.
Today is also my adopty day...woohoo!! I've been a member of my furever family for 10 years today! My first 4 years of life were spent in another house where mom said I apparently didn't like the people too much since they said I was nasty & would bite. HMPH....I don't have a mean bone in my body so mom said they must have done something to make me unhappy. Maybe that's why they took my 3 fursisters with them when they moved & tossed me outside. I was terrified when that happened but luckily the nice neighbor made sure I was fed/watered until she could talk to mom about taking me. I was scared of mom & my new house for quite a while after I got here too but Zaboo helped calm me down & we became inseparable until his crossing. I took his passing really hard & wouldn't eat much for several days but mom/dad knew just what to do to help me snap out of my grief. Now I'm the official 'paws of justice' in the house & proud of it...MOL!
Well I've got to run for now but hope you can stop in to help me celebrate today. While you're here you can rub against furless so you can find out if your reflexes are good...MOL!

Big paw hugs to all,
Patches & NICE Crew

now that's
one of the most important things to be king of the house! here it's between sandy, pepper and ab as we each are queen of the house at one time or the other. sandy's the grand dame being 15 deverves that honor, but hold the phone her 9 year old sister ab and then pepper are 9 and think they should have that honor, but won't till sandy passes whenever that might be we're not think-ing about it till it happens. at least the heat is gone just lower to mid 80s through next weekend, but the humidity is the troubles and will be with us through tuesday with 2 days of washouts tomorrow and tuesday with fronts going through. sandy,ab,haley,angels
