My favorite tricks and treats are: I love to lay on the couch and be groomed and then roll off it!!! I look so funny doing this!
Also, I can open Mommy's closet doors (I like to nosey around in there). and
I eat my lysine treats every morning & every night. I have the herpes virus & it affects my eyes.

Where I hang out: I love to spend my days outside. I love to sleep in my sherpa bed or the popcorn bowl on top of the fridge. I also like to get up in my "playhouse" on my back porch that Nana & PawPaw bought me - it has three levels & I like the highest one!

My favorite grubs: On 5-9-13, I was diagnosed with early kidney disease. So I had to give up my Fancy Feast because it contains way too much protein. Now I eat Prescription Diet k/d dry & Blue Buffalo Wilderness Mature canned foods. I also eat Purina nf kidney function dry. I weigh 10 lbs. I just started eating the mew FF broth foods - they are yummy & contain only 7% protein.

My pet peeves: I don't like to stay inside, but Mommy makes me come in at night. I don't like to drink from our water fountain - I prefer our scuba cat birdfeeder outside or my Dixie cup filled with bottled water. I don't really like to go see Dr. William every 3 months to have my Schirmer Eye Test, but I am a very good patient.

What I love about my owners: I love my family because they take such great care of me & they love me very much. I love for Nana to groom me. I am very thankful that my Nana & Mommy took me over 180 miles to see a feline opthalmologist about my eyes and we don't have to put those nasty drops in them anymore.

My cat hobbies: I love to play outside!! I have caught lizards, birds, grasshoppers, moles, and chipmunks - I am quick!!

Pet motto: Cats rule, Dogs drool!!!

How We Met

I came to my Mommy's house one day right before Christmas in 1999 (hence the name MerryBelle) because my other family moved off and left me. Can you imagine that? I'm glad though, or else I wouldn't be so loved and well taken care of!!! We celebrate my birthday on May 20 and my adoptiversary on December 16.

We joined Cat Channel on 11-9-06

♥ It's me here tonight..... SASSEE #10605!

♥ Mom says this is some purr*fect news to tell and I get to tell since it's about me. Mom was sent some information by our dear friend, Simba's #16612 momma Angela, about some possible help for my Degenerative Arthritis Disease. It's called "Compassion Laser Therapy" so mom called Dr. Nancy to check on the price and if she thought it would help me. Dr. Nancy thinks it will and dad's all for the treatments as well! My first treatment starts tomorrow, Wednesday 8/20 at 3:00pm. I will give you updates when I can. Mom is thrilled as she doesn't have to make that terrible decision on me yet! You know what? I'm thrilled, too!

♥ Mom also changed my profile photo to a newer one she took in in May. Thank you all for your prayers!

Mom got a phone call on Sunday (8/17) letting her know about the kitty mom rescued & Tina had came to get him. This poor kitty had been hit by a car which broke his lower jaw, but then also tested for Feline Leukemia which came back POSITIVE plus his ears were loaded with mites, had not been neutered and several bites from fights. They had to help the kitty with his Forever Sleep. The Veterinarian also thought the kitty to be about 13 years old. Mom is sad for the kitty, but at least he is no longer in pain. Luckily, mom never cleaned the crate yet that she had him in so as now she got it sterilized with strong bleach along with dad's PU bed. Mom for got about the trap til late Sunday night so she fixed up a spray bottle of Clorox then grabbed the trap to spray it down good and poured what was left in the jug over the trap to let set over night then hosed it down the next day.

Potato day?
Thats the best they could come up with? Guess I DO like playing with Mr. Potato Head. No,not Mrs.....kind of creeps me out to be putting her dress on. I do like Mr though.Especially when you put his eyes and ears in the wrong place. Kind of like a freak of nature. I have a great pic of a freak of nature as my guide. No,not Ernie,but it looks like a gray haired clown,kind of scary. Maybe the holy olive oil will save me! Mmmmmm...olive oils on taters...baked in the oven..

Hi Merrybelle
Today was a delightful day here in Detroit, upper 70's near 80* and lots of sunshine. Nothing like last week with all that non-stop rain and flooding.

Mom's hot water tank finally dried up and is working wonderfully and so is her washer as she did laundry is so relieved everything works now...and she has been taking hot showers every night.

Mom has Monday's off from work so she went out today and she came home with so much food for us and a few new toys as well...just some Cosmic catnip toys...the food was what we are most interested in...10 cans of Friskies, 1 box of pouches{12} and a bag of something called "Fresh Pet", it is moist cold kibble like food and me and Sheba each got new bowls....little pink old one got broked!!!

When mom came home she let us outside on the porch and Winston went down to the yard...we enjoy our outside time cause soon enough all the doors and windows will be closed and shut tight for the Winter.

Mom is having a hard time typing...she cut her finger open at work on a steak knife and it wouldn't stop has it all wrapped it up in a gauge bandage with tape...she hopes she didn't need a few stitches.

Hope you have a pawsome evening!

Hi MerryBelle!
Well, we here are always sensitive to the Homeless Pets, since once upon a time we were all homeless ourselves! Mom still has one "homeless" kitty that visits the back yard every day for food and water. It's been coming here for well over a year now. In fact, mom isn't sure if it is truly homeless or just ignored. It seems healthy, but not really friendly. It doesn't run away any more when mom goes into the yard, but it won't let her get too close either. She worries more about the outdoor cats in the winter, when it's so cold. None of them ever seems to want to stay in the shelter in the shed that she made for them. She can only hope they have somewhere they go to stay warm.

Hi MerryBelle
yep,after years of working with animals,mom knew what day today was. it's hard not to think of all the poor homeless animals,there are so many of them. whether they are in shelters looking for a home or strays and ferals who just need someone to care enough to help them live a better existence we pray for them every day. mom can no longer do all the fosterings she used to do but she still buys and donates to organizations that help all god's creatures. bless your mom and all the volunteers for the work they do to help these sweet animals live a better life! i just know it makes god smile!!

have a wonderful weekend

It is a very a sad thing that there are so many animals without homes. It seems to be that there are more and more all the time - especially cats. I am glad there is a day that we can honor them today, and I pray that one day they will all have wonderful homes like us!

I am with you, MerryBelle
Every kitty (and dog too) deserves a good, loving home. I am furever grateful to Mom for picking me. I show her my love every day. Mom gives (when she can) to a cat shelter in Chicago called Tree House Humane Society. They do all sorts of great fundraisers. One is using Amazon Smile. This is where Mom orders my powder (among other things) and a portion of each purchase goes to THHS. They also have a wonderful fundraiser around Christmas. You can buy a white light as a memorial to a pet who has crossed the Rainbow Bridge, and a colored one as a tribute to one who is still here. Mom hopes to "buy" me a colored one this year. She bought a white one last year.
Friends of Strays (where I'm from) also has community-wide fundraisers for food, litter, and other expenses.

Hi MerryBelle
Well, I am a very lucky kitty to have never been homeless. Even if I WAS named for having been evicted, my owner lined up a new home for me and I went straight there. A. Mallow was homeless for a while before she went to the shelter where she met our family, and Mojo was homeless with her Mom & fur sibs. Sort of anyway, they kind of squatted at Lady Dolly's and that was a pretty good choice on her fur mom's part. Thanks to Dolly's Mom, Mojo's fur Mom has been TNR'd, her sibs are in furever homes, and this year instead of even more homeless kitties at Dolly's place there are none at all. We are very thankful for the rescue group who helped them, the local shelter who took care of Mallow till she found her forever home with us, and for all of those who work to help homeless kitties.

Mojo wants to pass on that Sunday, the day after International Homeless Animals Day is Black Cat Appreciation Day. They have the hardest time of any kitties finding homes, so the days go paw in paw. -- Evie & family

Hey there Q. MerryBelle!
Yep! Our folks know firsthand about homeless animals and how very important it is to TNR community cats. Mom is trying to manage the local clowder of about a dozen cats. It wasn't quite this big last year, but the neighbor allowed last year's three female kittens to produce several litters, (since they tend to hang out mostly in her yard) and never helped Mom try to trap them.

Just this morning, the folks trapped two more feral kitties, each roughly 4-5 months old. (Mom had just TNR'd the momcat earlier this month). The shelter told us that they were probably both too old to be socialized for adoption, but that they would be put through the TNR program, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, de-crittered, then returned. The folks will pick them up on Monday morning.

Many purrs, Hedley

Hi Q. MerryBelle,
Thank-you so much for coming by to share my birthday with me and for the toys and treats too. Mom and I can hardly believe that I am 9 years old. Mom still remembers the day that I showed up as a very little kitten. Hehehe.!!! I have been so blessed to find the purrfect family and I enjoy each and every day. I was able to spend a lot of time in the yard today, sunning myself and watching all of the birds. I also had canned food for all three meals and extra treats too. It has been the best day and I am so thrilled to be able to spend it with you my friend. Have a wonderful evening. Purrs and a hug, Mittens...

How to Care for Your Humans...
(Useful Advice for Cats - Part 5)
Prevent Your Human From Wasting Valuable Time =^.^=

One of the most important tasks we cats have is to prevent humans from wasting their time. Humans love to spend their time on things with no relevance for cats. For example watching TV, reading, talking on the phone - and many other things that have no entertainment value for us cats whatsoever. Many methods are available to prevent human time waste - use your imagination. Some especially effective techniques will be mentioned here.

Watching TV: make sure that you always position yourself between the TV and your human. On the coffee table for example. You can also lie on the TV and let your tail or paws swing down in front of the screen. This method is most effective with small screens where you can cover a large percentage of the screen. It is a bit trickier with a flat screen - and only recommended for the agile kitty. A variation can be used with a computer screen. Flat screens often leave a lot of empty space on the desk - so just get up in front - remind your human of how wonderful you are.

We agree with you 150% on working to help homeless animals! So many needy. So many without good homes. So very sad. Mom is going to our shelter Sunday or Monday with five bags of afghans & blankets from Mom's work for the animals. She is also hoping to claim a new kitty that she would like to bring home next Saturday. Woo Hoo! Brrrrr! It was 59* when Mom drove to work! Has not been that low since spring! What month is this? MOL. Not complaining, Mom is just amazed every day how mild it has been. Don't believe it has reached three digits all summer or even over 94*. Mom better be quiet before she jinxes it! Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect day. Kitty Kisses. Dean

Thank you for sharing abuut International Homeless Animal Day. A little goes a long way. If a million people gave just $10--that's 10 million dolars and if another 10 million gave a dollar, that's another 10 million, It is so true, many a life would be not only spared but also enriched with a little generosity.

Happy Furiday everyfur
Sorry to have been MIA most of this week dear furiends! I'm doing a quick c/p blog today so we can get caught up.
It's been a busy, hectic time around our house with school starting & the annoying phone issues we're having, but we're putting on our happy furiday faces & will definitely take advantage of relaxation day! In fact we'll probably relax the entire weekend...MOL!

Mom has given up on the phone company ever figuring out why we can't get calls from the town where GM/GP live, dad works, the kids' school & our vet is. They think it stems from that town's phone company not being up to date on all the new tech stuff. Instead of worrying about it any more (or spending hours talking to the company) mom has ordered her & dad new cell phones & will be telling everyone that calls from there to use that number instead of the home one they've been getting a busy signal on each time they try to call. Luckily all of the other people that call can get through though.

Fluffinella has been running through the house meowing 'born to be wild' ever since the kids got on the bus the first day of school...MOL! She's the only one that doesn't socialize with them so the rest of us are a bit bored, but are getting used to the mew schedule. I'm always sitting on the bench at the table when they're eating breakfast & so does Patches. That way we make sure to get our morning pettings & sometimes a little slurp of cereal milk, or bite of whatever they're having that day too! I'm a kitty that knows how to take advantage of a good thing & so is Patchy...MOL!

Mom, dad & the kids will be going to the drive-in tomorrow night to watch the mew Planet of the Apes movie. Hopefully it will be warmer than the last few nights have been though. Since King Spanky-Jack #38743 has a special royal event going on while they're gone they said they'd drop us off at the Cat's Meow Resort & Event Center #271826 earlier in the day but we won't be able to do any live blogging.

Well I've got to go so mom can do some of her own relaxing. Have a great weekend & I'll meow at you again next week.

Sweet calico kisses,

Thank you for Remembering & Honoring our SMUDGE 14889 girl on her Forever Sleep of 7 years! Thank you also for the wonderful poems, flowers, gifts & mostly the furrriendships!

We have said in the past that SMUDGE, Sylvester 11567 and Suezee 11528 were the original Knight kitties that mom called "The Three Catateers" as they always hung out together whether it was in the back yard or front yard.

SMUDGE was blood Cousin to Bahneetah; Ebbonny; Charr; Sylvester; Patch Girl; Sweet Pea; Six; Teakee; Sausha; Velvet; Sayble; Rhoamin; Sissee; Suezee; Princess; Jazpyr; Sassee; Toebee & Thundyr.

SMUDGE was furrr-daughter to Aunt Samantha 15442. Those two looked so much alike. SMUDGE was an easy going and sweet feral girl. Both SMUDGE & Aunt Samantha had lots of Siamese in them.

SMUDGE loved her pettings and lovings from both mom and dad. SMUDGE was also the only survivor of her three littermate siblings as they were killed by wildlife.

Thank you again for Honoring & Remembering our pretty girl!

water sports day today!
got all sorts of stuff going on outside as well as board games in the garage. despite the light rain and showers still warm out there and nice with the humid conditions. janet and nat did well on their shopping trip as janet got a lot of replacement ornaments for those she's lost to breakage, some new ones marked down to $2, as well as votive candles 50% off the marked price, birkkies sandals to replace ones which were worn/cracked and thrown out as soon as she got home, a roasting chicken for $5 for mommy that's in the freezer and hopes to maybe get another tomorrow when out getting her paycheck and maybe running some of the errands and either grocery shopping tomorrow depending on next week's sales which sometimes are better so that likely on friday. sandy,ab

Filet mignon day! I have NO clue what a mignon is,but I want one. I mean,how can anything called a mignon be bad,right? Maybe we're supposed to toss this sucker in the Crock Pot and cook it for 18 hours til its the best dang mignon you have ever had! Yep,folks will be raving about my mignon from all over the world. Better go find my good shirt for when all the fans arrive. Whatcha think,does shiny polyester make my paws look big?? Maybe a classy,made in China stick pin will class it up :) Oh stop,I'm sure I have something equally as hideous,I mean classy for you.

Hi Merrybelle
How are you? I'm doing OK. Gee, that must have been wonderful to spend extra time with your momma. I love to be able to do that with mine too.

Momma won't be visiting Sebastien's momma and Timothy's poppa this summer. She has too many things to get done here. She'll miss seeing them but I'm glad she'll be sticking around here. I miss her so much when she's gone. She'll be visiting them at Christmas time. (Sigh)! I wish I could go with her then. Maybe I'll get to do so soon.

Have a purrfectly beautiful Wednesday sweetie.

Purrs and hugs,

One more day of freedom for our human sibs
Tomorrow they return to the routine of climbing onto the big yellow bus for the long ride to school. Brother is looking forward to going back since this will be his first year at the high school & he LOVES to study but sis isn't as happy about it.
Dad is really worried about his school building because the contractors that were hired for remodeling aren't even close to finishing the installation of the new windows & air one end of the building doesn't have the water available yet either! They'll have to shuffle kids into rooms that are completed then move them out once theirs is done, which means more work for dad on top of his daily stuff. The school board met yesterday & they're concerned too but spoke very highly of dad & how cooperative he is with the contractors & how well he's getting things done even with construction going on all around him. He said the praise is great but he'd rather see it all completed before 3rd & 4th grade kids start tromping through the building.
We've been trying to take his mind off work when he's home by being very loving. Even Piglet & Sneakers are being pretty well behaved (most of the time) & are climbing into his lap or rubbing against his legs but they can't sit still too long yet or they'll explode...MOL! I've made sure I lay in his lap for a LONG time every night & Patches is generally right beside him too as Fluffinella & Monkey sit by his feet. Poor mom is feeling left out but she knows he needs the extra attention more than she does right now, plus she'll have us all to herself during the day starting tomorrow.

Can't meow too long today since mom is doing laundry so will sign off for now & meow at you again soon.

Purrs & hugs,

I won't do it
I won't mention its middle child day,seeing I'm "The Baby". Yes....all pictures get taken of the first,and the last,but the middle child?? Not so much. Except for you,I would NEVER say that to you. Oh....mean glare there MBelle. How about we have fun with vinyl record day instead-something to really dig a claw into and scratch :)
