Dear Spongie ...
... Mom saw your mom's note on the CMR page and had me fly right over to your house to sprinkle lots of angel dust on your mom and all of you. Mom wants her to know she keeps her in prayer for complete healing ... nothing less ... and will continue to do so.

I will stay on this cloud for a while, where I can watch over all of you and sprinkle the good stuff all over you. Keep loving and cuddling your mom. My mom said when she had cancer and was so very sick, having me stay with her, lying right beside her with my little nose a fraction of an inch from hers, it helped her so much to keep hanging in there. You are doing all the right things, my furriend.

Leaving a vote, purrs and whisker tickles, and LOTS of love, A.Q Cherish and Mom June.

Come visit me, A.Q. Cherish Luvs P. Thunder forever.

Hi K. SpongeBob and family!
Another hot day for us here- in the mid 90’s today and tomorrow and then it will start to cool down. Mom took Callie and me for our stroller walk early this morning. We had the trail to ourselves, when we saw a small doggie coming towards us, just trotting along by himself. He wasn’t barking and his tail was wagging. Mom was relieved to see he had a collar. Mom always carries a leash, just in case, so she parked our stroller off the trail and went to see if the doggie was friendly enough to let her leash him. He was and while Mom was trying to read his tag, we suddenly heard people yelling for “Bella!” Yep! The doggie’s tag said Bella on it with a phone number. Mom never gets the gender right. MOL! Bella was a girl! Any way, the people yelling were on the other side of the trail. The three mile loop trail is the one we always use. So Mom had to run down a hill (with Bella) to get to the creek and yell as loud as she could - “Bella is over here!” The owners were two teenagers who had let Bella off her leash while they walked. They said Bella never goes far, but apparently she must have seen a squirrel or something interesting. They thanked Mom and put Bella back on her leash. Callie and I waited patiently in our stroller, praying that no one would come by and cat-nap us! Mom assured us we were always within her eyesight. We had to turn around and hurry back home because it was warming up and Mom still needed to take our neighbor Abarna out for a stroll. Whew! What a morning! This will be a great day for cat napping.:)

Hey buddy, be sure to give your sweet Mom and Baby hugs for us. We're always thinking of you guys and we always have all of you in our prayers.

We left a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

“She hops expectantly into the sink. I turn on the tap for her; she laps without a glance in my direction, like a duchess so used to being ministered to that she no longer notices the servants and sees only a world where objects dumbly bend to her wishes, doors opening, faucets discharging cool water, delicious things appearing in her dish.” =^.^= - Peter Trachtenberg, On The Love of Cats and Persons

Hi K Spongie, Baby, Mom Lynn & Angels, 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

Hi K. SpongeBob and family!
Today is supposed to be in the low 90’s so we went out early for our stroller walk. Then Mom took our neighbor out for a ride in her wheelchair. The sun was already out, so Mom hooked an umbrella on the wheelchair to keep the sun off of Abarna. We watched them from the bay window and laughed at how silly they looked. MOL!

This morning my Mom was filling the syringes with my pureed cat food and I sat by the kitchen watching her. Normally I run off when she comes towards me so she has to catch me first. But today I didn’t. Mom got on the ground next to me, petting me and letting me sniff the syringe. I swallowed the first one like a good boy and Mom waited for me to run. Nope! I sat there waiting for more! Mom gave me my second one along with a big hug. Dad was watching and said to Mom, “Oh no, I hope he doesn’t get used to eating this way. How will I ever be able to feed him when you’re not here?” Mom isn’t worried. She just wants to get some weight on me with this prescription food and hopefully when I go back for my urine retest, I’ll get a clean bill of health. Baby steps Dad!

Give your dear Mom and pretty Baby hugs for us my furiend. We have all of you in our prayers.

This Is My Chair =^.^=
~~~~~
This is my chair.
Go away and sit somewhere else.
This one is all my own.
It is the only thing in your house that I possess
And insist upon possessing.
Everything else therein is yours.
My dish,
My toys,
My basket,
My scratching post and my Ping-Pong ball;
You provided them for me.
This chair I selected for myself.
I like it,
It suits me.
You have the sofa,
The stuffed chair
And the footstool.
I don’t go and sit on them do I?
Then why cannot you leave me mine,
And let us have no further argument?

Hi K Spongie, Baby, Mom Lynn & Angels, 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 K Spngie, Baby, Angels and Mom Lynn
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

Hi K. SpongeBob and family!
Not too much going on here today. The weather was a nice 80 degrees so Callie and I got our walk in the stroller and Mom took our neighbor Abarna out for a walk in her wheelchair. Remember the little lost gray kitty named Pepper that we had staying with us for a short while? Her Mom called yesterday to say hello to my Mom and let us know that Pepper is doing fine. Mom is going to have tea with them next week.

We wish we lived close to you my furiend so we could just go over to visit. We're always thinking of you kitties and your dear Mom and we always have all of you in our prayers. Give your sweet Mom and Baby soft hugs for us, okay?

We left a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

hi dear k spongie
we set aside our prayers for our goliath, as we have plenty from other cc fam and focus our prayers to your wonderful momma lynn and yall

goliath laid down on momma's bed as usua tonightl. but seemed different so momma took the hard pastic collar from his neck and he rolled over on his back and cuddled into momma's arms with his nose buried against her neck
momma laid there with him that way till she had to (excuse this) pee when she got up well of course goliath did too and "said" momma I need to pee too. momma at this ppoint took the much larger "soft collar" off (it kept him from reaching past the hard one to lick

anyhoo, momma just spent a very breathless and painful 25 minutes what with her copd and back problems, walking goliath round our 1 acre yard with his leash in one hand and her glock 45 in the other ( not taking any chances on that scum bag that was breaking in her bedroom window last sunday nite) for protection. anyway goliath had the best time in four weeks and when he got a bit fast for momma all she had to do was say my bubba too fast and he would stop and let momma catch up and then walk slower for her.

aww momma will always wonder why a doggie cant just walk out in the yard and pee or poop instead of making at least 3 trips over the same area and then wind up coming right back to the place he started to begin with to poop

aaahhhh the tings we do for our furkids.
again thank all of yall so very much for ur prayers and to momma janet( dean and fam) and momma Irene, queen Maggie and a ginger, and momma Amanda( k whiskers and fam) for the donations they sent to help with goliath's vet bill. it helped so much regardless that I still am facing a 900.00 bill at this time. it will all come around and be handled by god's or momma's efforts

loves yall

Hi K. SpongeBob and family
I'm pawing by with a quick vote and lots of purrs and hugs. My Mom has been busy running errands today, ignoring us (humph!), but I have to admit Mom was out mainly trying to get the special food I have to eat. Our vet ran out of it, so Mom have drive to the vet's other office which is kind of far. Mom got stuck in traffic, but the good mews is she did get my food. And Mom used her good senses this time and bought two cases of the food. MOL!

We're keeping your dear Mom in our prayers buddy. We hope the scratches on her leg haven't gotten worse with infection. You and Baby keep up the great work of taking good care of her. I know you both will. We love you guys!

We left a vote with lots of purrs and hugs.

Hi K Spongie, Baby, Mom Lynn & Angels, 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,

Dear K. Spongie and family
We just read about the terrible incident you had with your dear Mom! We know you didn't mean to hurt your sweet Mom my furiend. Sometimes we get so excited playing with our family that we lose control. But your dear Mom is so fragile right now, it's a crying shame this had to happen. We always have her in our prayers buddy, but we'll be sending her some extra healing prayers today.

My Mom and Dad have been giving me my antibiotics since the middle of May and I have let my Mom know I'm not happy with it, by hissing and growling at her. I recently took a bite out of her hand too. She knew I didn't mean to hurt her, just like your Mom knew you were only playing. We're glad that Jr was there to help your Mom and we hope her wound doesn't get too infected. Maybe since Jr cleaned the wound so quickly and got your Mom to the doctor right away; maybe it won't get too bad.

Give your Mom and Baby big hugs for us buddy. And try not to feel bad my furiend. We're hoping and praying for the days when you and your Mom can play peek-a-boo again. God bless all of you.

We left a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

By the fire, like drifting reddish goldfish,
the cat dozed, curled within itself.
If, by mischance, I were to stir,
the cat might change to something else.

The spinning-wheel of ancient magic
must never be allowed to stick;
and changing itself into a princess
is, for a cat, a minor trick.

Hi K Spongie, Baby, Mom Lynn & Angels, It's me
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

♥ THURSDAY morning 8/20; Mom set the sprinkler on the front yard to water the flowers and grass then she went to the back yard to weed eat around the back yard with the weedeater then she mowed all the weeds down. Patch Girl, Suezee, NeuBee & Sissee went in hiding under the two sheds!!!! In the afternoon; Dad had a Dentist appointment to get his upper plate worked on then he stopped off to visit his sister before coming home.

♥ FRIDAY morning 8/21; Mom was so tired that she sat on the couch cuz I wanted held, but mom dosed off for awhile as she was petting me. Then towards noon dad took Wilbur for his morning potty walk then after dad took his morning medications, he and mom went in the front yard to add a small piece of plastic edging in one spot of mom's flower bed.

♥ Ok, You know mom's morning schedule, so now here's dad's daily morning schedule; Mom let's dad sleep in generally bout 8:00 to 8:30 then she usually takes him a cup of coffee to wake him up. He will lay there for 15 to 20 minutes before he finally gets up. He then takes off all his paraphernalia (C-PAP Mask, etc.) that he sleeps with every night; then after he's all dressed, he will prepare Wilbur's medication and gives him bites of a Hot Dog. It used to be Peanut Butter then cheese and now this. Guess Wilbur found out dad was sneaking his pills in the PB & Cheese so Wilbur quit eating them!!!! Then dad takes Wilbur on his potty walk; then comes home which then dad takes his morning medications. He takes a lot of them to function!!!! By time dad's done with his daily chores it's almost noon!!!! Mom says he takes way too long!!!! Tehehehe!!!!

Anyways, her kitty chores takes about an hour and half or so with the potty box cleanings to feedings, medications and fresh waters. Then if she has errands to run she tries to get them done in the mornings after the mail run.

♥ SATURDAY 8/16; Mom took doggie WILBUR to PetSmart to get bathed, fur cut and groomed cuz she said he was a stinky dog and we all agreed!!!! Tehehehe!!!!

♥ MONDAY 8/17; Mom put that Revolution Flea gunk on Wilbur and then dad held each of us inside kits one by one as mom clipped all nine kitties' nails, then Revolutionized us, then we all got our treats. Mom didn't have to clip Sausha's nails cuz she had Tech Ashley do it while Sausha was under anesthesia. Then mom did the Revolution on the outside Girls; Sissee, Suezee, Patch Girl & Mysteanah-Gre'. NeuBee gets the Comfortis flea pill in a tiny bit of wet cat food.

♥ TUESDAY 8/18; Mom had to go to Wal*Mart to buy BAHNEETAH #10641 more Pepcid pills for her tummy plus a few other things. Later in the late afternoon, Mom went and picked up Sausha's antibiotic Azithromycin at the Health Mart Pharmacy then mom went to The Veterinary Hospital to pick up my B-12 Complex injections which mom gave me when she got home.

We are SO sorry to hear about the nasty accident that you & Mom had while playing! Of course she knows that you didn't mean to dig your claws in and hurt her like that, you just got scared too because your claws were stuck. We're so glad that they're taking good care of it for her at the Wound Care place, no way do you want that to get infected.

You make sure to give her lots of purr therapy, and we'll keep sending our purrs your way too. -- Mike & the ladies

Hi K. SpongeBob and family!
Today with a high of only 80 degrees, it was the purrfect day for walking. Our Mom took Callie and me for our morning stroller walk, where we ran into a few of our furiends on the trail. The dogs that know us by now just bark once to say hello and then walk on by. We always fill the bucket by the dried up creek with water and we never forget to bring our bag of birdseed. Then Mom went to get our neighbor Abarna for a stroll in her wheelchair. Abarna brought a bag filled with breadcrumbs, so the birds and squirrels were really happy today!

When Mom came home, we were all catnapping. Mom always takes a head count before she does anything and this morning she couldn’t find my sister Callie. I followed my Mom around the house, checking the usual hiding spaces, but no Callie. So Mom started to panic, trying to remember if she could have opened any door, letting Callie get out unnoticed. By now her heart was racing! Orangie was asleep in the bay window and Whitey was in the closet. Whitey has a bed in the closet that she likes to sometimes catnap in. Mom shined the flashlight in the closet just to make sure Whitey was there. But still no Callie! Finally after tearing through the whole house, Mom decided to recheck the closet where Whitey was sleeping. But she couldn’t imagine Callie would ever get in the closet with Whitey. They just don’t get along that well! So Mom opened the closet doors to get a better view and sure enough - Callie was buried in a box filled with winter blankets in a corner of the closet! Callie and Whitey together in a closet?! Mom would have never believed it if she hadn’t seen it for herself! Now maybe I can get some peace and quiet for MY nap. MOL!

We hope you and Baby have a nice, relaxing weekend with your dear Mom. Give her a soft hug for us buddy. We always have all of you in our prayers.

We left a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

"In these days of tension, human beings can learn a great deal about relaxation from watching a cat, who doesn't just lie down when it is time to rest, but pours his body on the floor and rests in every nerve and muscle." -- by Murray Robinson, American writer =^.^=

Hi K Spongie, Baby, Mom Lynn & Angels, 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 K Spongie, Baby, Mom Lynn & Angels, 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 K. SpongeBob and family!
We’re having a very pleasant day today with temps only in the low 80’s. Whoo hoo! My Mom took Callie and me for our stroller walk and when we got back we joined Whitey and Orangie outside on the deck. I was shocked when I saw Whitey sleeping in MY BED! We each have our own cat bed in the backyard, so why she picked mine this morning is a mystery to me. I sniffed her a few times and then I did the polite thing and jumped up onto the doghouse for my catnap. Mom was proud of me. MOL! I’m still taking my medicine and hating it, but I’m over half way done. Yay!

My Mom took Sugar Bear to the vet for her rabies and booster shots. Today we all got our Revolution Flea treatments, so none of us are too happy with Mom. Tomorrow is supposed to be even cooler, so Mom plans on taking our neighbor Abarna, out for a walk in the morning before it gets too warm. Abarna is doing well and is looking forward to getting out for some fresh air.

Give your sweet Mom and Baby hugs for us. We hope your Mom has been able to eat a little bit more. Keep up the purr therapy my furiend.

We left a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

Hi K Spongie, Baby, Mom Lynn & Angels, It's me
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 K. SpongeBob and family!
Our Mom took Callie and me on our stroller walk this morning and it was considerably cooler than yesterday- by ten degrees. When we got home, Whitey and Orangie were in the backyard lying down in their cat beds, watching the birds in the trees. The birds are always very active and noisy in the morning. Callie and I ran out to join them. Our Mom reminded us to just look and not eat. MOL!

Our neighbor Abarna is doing well, happy to be home and getting lots of purr therapy from Ebony and Sugar Bear. Abarna is doing so well, her doctor said it would be okay for my Mom to take Abarna out in her wheelchair for short walks around the block. The weather has been much too hot the past few days to take her outside, but we’re expecting a nice cool down beginning today.

We have your sweet Mom in our prayers buddy. Give her and pretty Baby soft kitty kisses for us.

We left a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

Hi K Spongie, Baby, Mom Lynn & Angels, 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 K. SpongeBob and family!
Whew! It was a hot weekend here for us, in the low 100’s. Going outside in our backyard to catnap was not an option. Callie and I meowed at our Mom while looking out longingly through the sliding glass door. Mom decided to teach us a lesson and she let us out. We ran out excitedly, but made a quick u-turn around the deck and ran back inside. It was much too hot for our little paws! What was Mom thinking?! MOL! Whitey and Orangie watched from inside and had a good laugh!

We were so sadden to read on the CMR Mews, that dear Mom Janada had to re-home her precious furbabies, Queen Lady Dolly and Lollipop, but when we heard their new furever home was with two of our dear CC friends, we cried tears of joy! God bless Mom Toni and Mom Debby for opening up their hearts and their homes to our furiends. Today’s cat quote made us think of all our kind and wonderful friends on CC. We feel truly blessed.

Give your dear Mom and sweet Baby hugs for us buddy. We always have your family in our thoughts and prayers.

We left a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

Momma called The Veterinary Hospital this morning to let them know that I got barfy yesterday evening and also asked if my UltraSound Results came in yet and said it came in Sunday.

Momma finally got my UltraSound Results this morning (8/17) as Dr. Nancy and said that I have CHRONIC PANCREATITIS and INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE. She told momma that I will continue to take the Prednisolone every other day. Dr. Nancy also called in a script for me to take Azithromycin. That should be ready late today or in the morning.
Mom added 2 pis of me before & during my UltraSound also my profile pic.

GIRL POWER CREW is inviting you to stop by on TUESDAY (8/18) all day in Remembrance of our AUNT SAMANTHA #15442 for this is her Forever Sleep of 3 years! Aunt Samantha was a girl as she stood up to those Raccoons that came to the back patio to eat the kitty food. She even swatted at one several times in its face as the coon covered its face with its paws then finally left as Aunt Samantha was one not to give up not even at age 14. Momma was worried that a coon would end her life one day, but it was 2 PitBulls that did that and it was a very brutal attack which happened in our back yard.

Hi K Spongie, Baby, Mom Lynn & Angels, It's me
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 K Spongie, Baby, Mom Lynn & Angels, 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

Hi K Spongie, Baby, Mom Lynn & Angels, It's me
COTM DAY 15
Wow what a day! It’s been storming all day and tomorrow is our mom’s Birthday. Uncle Ted (mom’s youngest son) has invited mom and dad to a birthday cookout tomorrow. Dad decided to make mom a special dinner tonight and celebrate a day early.
He went to the market early this morning and had gotten New York Strip steaks, some lobster tails, fresh broccoli, Baking potatoes and everything to make a Caesar Salad.
He started preheating the oven and we were all in the kitchen helping. He turned the oven on to preheat and that's when we heard a clap of really loud thunder right outside and the power went off. Dad ran out and he could still see sparks coming from several transformers on the poles down the street. He came back inside and switched on our generator. Then he began making dinner.
Well, when mom got home from her book club, she said that the weather and traffic had been awful. She said that traffic lights were all on flashing yellow all the way from the University of North Florida. Dad told her to go take a nice Jacuzzi, relax and let him pamper her. We were pleased to see that dad had gotten an extra Lobster tail, which he boiled for us. He said the whole family should celebrate mom’s birthday, including us kitties.
When mom was finished with her Jacuzzi, she joined us all in the kitchen. At dinner dad gave mom his birthday card for her which had the little donation thank you from No More Homeless Pets in it. As they were having dinner, and lingering over dessert, Mom asked, “What about Talley’s blog for Saturday, the two of you usually write it the evening before.”
Dad told her that we do a short blog today. He said that the CC family would understand.
I apologize for dad, but he says, mom deserves a special day. (I agree, mom is pretty special) So I guess what I'd like to do, is just remind everyone to go to freekibble.com and the animal rescue site every day. . (The New Shelter Challenge will be starting soon so you’ll all have the opportunity to vote for the Shelter of your Choice to receive cash grants!)
Thank you so much for your understanding,

Dad picked this poem for us;

Caring Cats
Appearing to be, just little brats,
Nevertheless, they are caring cats.
Qualified to leap, to unreachable heights
Always more frisky, particularly at night.
Able to run sideways, even on walls
Keeping in balance, never to fall.
Accused of being finicky, when I call it class
An affectionate nature, they’re caring cats.
When talking to a cat, to make you aware
They shift their ears, to tell you they hear.
The light that shines, from their eyes at night
Alone in the dark, a mysterious sight.
Captivating your love, with a relaxing purr
Displaying affection, attentive to words.
Their spirited nature, being mischievous cats
Compassionate felines, they’re caring cats.

Special Hugs and Kitty Kisses,

I love you all,
Talley

Hi K. SpongeBob and family!
It’s almost the weekend and we’re gearing up for a hot one. Saturday will be the hottest day. My Mom called GM in San Diego and found out they are expecting temps up to 107 degrees this weekend. Yikes!

My sister Callie and I went on a stroller walk with our Mom this morning, after I took my morning dose of medicine. I still hate the taste of the stuff, but one single dose, twice a day, is not too bad. I haven’t started to hide from my Mom yet, so that’s a good sign. I’m not real crazy about my new canned food, so Mom is supplementing my meals with the C/D food pureed and given to me via a syringe. I’m not putting up a fight, so Mom is hoping it might help whet my appetite for eating on my own.

Ebony and Sugar Bear are as happy as can be with their sweet Momma home. The two cats love to run up and down the stairs and around the house, but they seem to know to tread softly with their Mom. Cats are so smart, but we all know that!

Give your dear Mom and sweet Baby hugs for us my furiend. We hope your Mom is eating a bit more and getting lots of purr therapy from you two kitties. We love you guys and always have you all in our prayers.

We left a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

Hi K Spongie, Baby, Mom Lynn & Angels, It's me
Talley,
COTM DAY 14
Today I think we'll look into what you should do you do if you encounter an injured kitty.
The very first thing to do is to get the cat some place safe, and try to find the owner. If that isn't possible, examine the kitty to determine the problem. If it was hit by a car you should gently scoop up the cat and rush it to a veterinarian for care. Never have a young child hold an injured pet.
Finding an injured cat when you do not know the cause is a bit more concerning. You will have to determine if the cat needs medical attention from a veterinarian, or just needs rest. Usually with an injury situation, and a stray cat, a trip to the vet is best, because they can give the cat any vaccinations it will require, and check it properly for any other health issues. This is particularly important if you are considering keeping the cat. Remember, we are talking about a cat where you KNOW there is not an owner, not just a stray cat you happened to find for the first time.
Home rest after treatment, should always be done in a small quiet room, where the cat can have a litter box, food, and water. Proper nutrition is important to the recovery of the kitty. It should have plenty of water and dry food, plus the addition of a small amount of canned food to give it extra protein and energy.

COMMON INJURIES TO CATS
* Being hit by a vehicle
* Being injured by another animal
* Being injured by a fan-belt (in the winter cats often curl up in or under vehicle engines for warmth)
* Intentionally hurt by a human
If you have injured an animal it is your duty to tend to it. While you may not be financially responsible (after all its owner let it out) you have a moral duty to make sure it does not suffer needlessly while waiting to be helped.
Well, I hope you never need this information, but it's good to think about what to do, before you actually have to deal with the situation.

Today's Poem was picked for us by my mom, who says every kitty she's ever had has left pawprints on her heart.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
They left us their paw prints we no longer see,
their happiness still in our minds.
They left us fond memories to you and to me,
their friendship will last all of time.
They left us their shadows grow dimmer to fade,
but never forgotten we'll see.
They left us their photos to gaze at each day,
to brighten us up when we're down.
They left us their feelings their purrs and their meows,
that echo around empty rooms.
They left us those moments to think of and smile,
of footfalls not gentle, like horses.
They left us their playing they thought such a lark,
with toy mice and baubles a plenty.
And the house was all empty without our small friends,
but the love that they gave will always remain...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Your Friend Forever,
Talley
