She also managed to get into the attic once, the only way in, being to lift a thirty pound door. We never did figure that one out. possible explanations suggested by friends were feline teleportation and possibly kitty-kinesis

How We Met

Lucy was originally adopted as a ten week old kitten, by a young woman my son knew. Lucy apparentley disliked her from the beginning, because she would stalk her, jump on her from high places, bite her and scratch her. After enough band aids and first aid, She decided to take Lucy to a public shelter, which euthanized animals after a fairly short time. I was afraid that such a fierce little kitten might have difficulty finding a family to adopt her. I respected Lucy's fierce spirit and offered to adopt her. My offer was accepted. I was alone until Lucy came to me and she lived with me being a great friend for the next fifteen years, When I met My better half, Mary Lou, Lucy took to her and I knew that we would all be family. Then, on August 26, 2008, at seven thirty a.m. she pased away quietly, having been healthy and happy right up until the end. She passed in her sleep and is now a blessed angel kitty watching over us from above. I miss her so very much.

A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU TO ALL
WE ARE SO THANKFUL TO ALL OUR GOOD FRIENDS. FORGIVE US FOR BEING SO SLOW TO MAKE OUR ROUNDS TO THOSE, WHO STOPPED BY TO GREET ANGEL LACY ON MONDAY TO HONOR THE FIFTH ANNIVERSARY OF HER CROSSING AND GAVE HER AND ALL OUR ANGELS THEIR ACOTD THIS PAST TUESDAY.

DID WE EVER TELL YOU LACY'S STORY? SHE STARTED OFF AS A FARM CAT, BUT THEN A YOUNG MAN THOUGHT HE WANTED HER AS A PET AND BROUGHT HER TO HIS HOME IN THE CITY. IT TURNED OUT HIS MOTHER DID NOT WANT HER AND THE CAT WAS KICKED OUT (LITERALLY) ON THE STREET. NOT SPAYED, OF COURSE, SHE BECAME PREGNANT AND HAD KITTENS IN THE WOOD PILE OUT BACK. THAT WAS WHEN MOM GOT THE CALL. THE PEOPLE WANTED BOTH LACY AND HER KITTENS GONE. LACY WAS A GOOD MOM, BUT DIDN'T TRUST PEOPLE AND WOULD BITE FIRST AND ASK QUESTIONS LATER. MOM AND A FRIEND TRAPPED THE KITTENS AND TOOK LACY TO MOM'S HOUSE. SHE HAD TO GO IN A LARGE CAGE, BECAUSE SHE WOULD ATTACK ANYONE TOUCHING HER KITS. OF COURSE, THE KITS NEEDED TO BE EXAMINED AND GIVEN SHOTS, AS WELL AS LACY. MOM WAS PATIENT, BUT MORE THAN ONCE WAS THE OBJECT OF LACY'S WRATH. LATER, AFTER THE KITTENS WERE WEANED, LACY WAS MOVED TO A LARGE BEDROOM AND MOM WAS ABLE TO MAKE FRIENDS. THE KITTENS WERE TAKEN BY ANOTHER FOSTER TO SOCIALIZE AND LIVE WITH OTHER KITTENS AND HUMAN CHILDREN. THEY ALL SOON FOUND FOREVER HOMES. LACY DID GO IN THE ADOPTION PROGRAM, BUT SHE WAS SHY AND UNSTABLE AND BIT MORE THAN ONE POTENTIAL PAWRENT. BECAUSE OF THIS, MOM DECIDED TO KEEP HER AND SHE LIVED OUT THE REST OF HER LIFE WITH US. SHE STILL WOULD NIP AT MOM, WHILE SHE CONTINUED TO FEEL NERVOUS ABOUT LIFE, BUT HER FEELINGS OF FEAR CAME LESS AND LESS AND SHE REALIZED THE MEANING OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. LACY LIVED WELL INTO HER SENIOR YEARS. SHE WILL BE CHERISHED IN MOM'S HEART FOREVER.

Morning dawned cold and clear at Castle Airfield.
Pete sat in the pilot briefing room and was on the phone with the Tri-Cities Aviation in Blountville Tennessee. He’d made arrangements for the Coronation Flight to land. Since the trip was so short refueling wouldn’t be required, but as usual, arrangements would need to be made for the crowd of well-wishers that would be on hand to cheer the new Queen on her way.
The 787 Dreamliner was out of the hangar and sat gleaming in the early morning sun. It was being prepped for the flight. Angels Lucy-Fur and Sylvia Seville secured the last inspection port and signed off on the pre-flight ground checks.
Next Pete contacted Galaxy Aviation at Palm Beach International. They would be flying there to pick up Queen Snuggles’ husband Manchester.
At this point Pete planned to pick up the Queen to be, and then set off from the airport in Tennessee direct to Florida to pick up Manchester. The in-flight meal would be served on the return from Florida.
Raven and Ms. Murphy came into the briefing room and reported that the cabin was thoroughly prepped and stocked.
Ms Murphy added that she had been coordinating with the Hairballz Rainbow Riders and they would arrive Friday Evening, to load their bikes and put their gear aboard.
Now for crew scheduling: His first thought was to assign the flight to Talley and Whiskers, but then he thought that it was important to train more pilots to fly the big Dreamliner, and so he decided to assign Shaddie and Thundie as Pilots In Command, with Hedley Neelix and Jakar as copilots on a rotating basis. By the time they returned to the Castle, The Pawty Animals would be ready for a check ride.
Then there was the process of getting all of the guests to the Coronation. Rusty and Sir Clay would travel up and down the West Coast bringing people to Reid Hillview Airport in San Jose. From there Talley and Whiskers would bring the passengers cross country in the 747. The rest of the Royal Squadron would be busy as well. The Coronation day was always demanding and the Royal Squadron always met the needs of the Feline Empire.

By lunchtime Friday the pilots began to arrive, Lady Callie and Angel Maggie had arranged a lunch up at the town house. Q Cherish and Thundie had arrived earlier and Talley had checked each of them out in the Taurus two seat glider. Both Cherish and Thundie had loved gliding and they were making plans to buy their own glider. They both loved the self-launching feature. The small retractable engine made it easy to go gliding whenever you had the time.
They lunched on steak sandwiches steak fries, apple pie and iced tea. Pete posted the schedule and everyone was satisfied with their assignments.
Back at the Field the ground crews had the Dreamliner, The 747 and The Gulfstream on the ramp. The Grand Caravans were serviced and ready. Thundie and Shaddie were running cockpit checks while Neelix Hedley and Jakar followed them on their own checklists.
While the Pilots prepared for the flight, Angel Maggie and Lady Callie stocked the Galley, Raven and Ms Murphy got the Hairballz Rainbow Riders, settled in.
Pete and Whiskers checked the cargo hold to make sure that the Limousines and the motorcycles were secured safely.
At three PM they were ready, Thundie was in the Pilot’s seat, Neelix was in the co-pilot’s seat. Pete reported that the Cargo Hold was secure and Thundie verified that the indicator on the panel confirmed the hatch was secured.
Lady Callie confirmed that the Galley was secure. Pete and Whiskers wished them a safe trip and climbed down the stairs. Raven retracted the stairs and closed the hatch.
Thundie received clearance and instructed Neelix to taxi out to the active runway. Once they were cleared they turned on to the active and Thundie brought the throttles forward and they thundered into the air.
Angel Mallow waited until they were airborne and then asked for a snack. Maggie had prepared for such a request, and provided Moonpies and coffee.
The flight to Bristol was barely up and down, they really never reached cruising altitude. For and airport accustomed to small commuter aircraft, the massive Dreamliner attracted a lot of attention, Kitties lined the area as they taxied to the ramp. The FBO had done a good jpb erecting a rope line and even providing bleachers for the crowds to sit in. Talley supervised the unloading of the motorcycles and the limousines. The red carpet was rolled out and The motorcade left to bring Snuggles back to the Airport.
The Hairballz Rainbow Riders led the limousines out of the airport and on to the highway.
As they turned into Snuggles neighborhood, neighbors lined the streets waving flags and cheering.
Snuggles and her family were ready, they hurried into limousines. The baggage was loaded and the motorcade pulled out.

When they arrived back at the airport, there was a large enthusiastic crowd Snuggles agreed to make a few remarks to the happy crowd and as she walked to the microphone deafening cheers rose up.
Snuggles spoke from the heart, She told the crowd how much she appreciated their support and pledged to include them all in the Castle festivities for the coming holidays.
By the time that Snuggles finished her speech and walked up the stairs, the crew had loaded the bikes and limos. They were secured and Shaddie received clearance for takeoff.
Shaddie had Jakar riding co-pilot and familiarized him with the systems enroute. Ms. Murphy sat with Snuggles and explained that they would be serving lunch enroute pick up Manchester and his family, and then the dinner would be served on the return trip to the Castle lunch would be Charleston and Shrimp and Grits, dinner however would be. Southern Fried Chicken, Turnip Greens, Mashed potatoes and Gravy, Corn Nuggets, Hot Biscuits, Banana pudding and Sweet Tea!
They landed in Palm Beach and unloaded the limousines. Snuggles wanted to ride with the motorcade to bring Manchester to the airport. The limos departed and Hedley followed along with the pre-takeoff checklist and by the time that the motorcade returned and Manchester and his family had been brought aboard they were ready to start up and takeoff.
They were cleared direct to Castle Airfield and once they were airborne, Lady Callie and Angel Maggie prepared the meal and Raven and Ms. Murphy served their guests. There was a festive air in the cabin.
After dinner Raven sat with down with Snuggles in the luxurious Royal Conference room and explained that King Malachi would receive her at the Castle and that she would be able to rest this evening and be fresh for the Coronation Ceremony tomorrow night.
Hedley called Castle Field and received clearance. He could see that a large crowd had gathered to greet the Queen to be. He took the controls and announced that would make a circle of the Castle Grounds, so that the Queen to be could see the crowd of loyal subjects waiting on the ground.
The big Dreamliner gleamed in the sun as they made a stately circle around the Castle. Snuggles could see the crowds below waving and cheering. Banners flew form the Castle Towers and flags waved from the flagpoles. Shaddie lined up and touched down smoothly. They taxied to the ramp and deployed the stairs. The cheers of the kitties rolled in as they opened the hatch. The Royal Carriage, pulled by four white horses pulled to the foot of the red carpet. Snuggles descended, waving to the crowd. She and Manchester stepped up into the carriage. She waved as the carriage began the trip up to the Castle where King Malachi waited to receive her with cocktails and light food.
The Festivities had begun.

Ms. Murphy’s Kitchen
It was barely seven AM and Murphy was already in the Kitchen. Four Standing Prime Rib Roasts were on the work surface of the counter and Murphy seasoned them with garlic, salt cracked black pepper and Rosemary.
Pete came downstairs for breakfast. Murphy asked him if he would like her to make something for him. He thanked her and said, that he was just going to have coffee and a bowl of crunchy cereal. He told her that he had some ideas he wanted to run by the research staff at the Feline Studies Center. He said that he and Angel Lucy were going to transport over there as soon as she arrived.
Pete had just finished the crossword puzzle and his cereal when Angel Lucy appeared in the kitchen. She accepted coffee and took a sweet roll from the plate on the counter. Angel Maggie, Raven and Talley came into the kitchen and asked Murphy how they could help.
Ms. Murphy smiled and said, “There’s ten pounds of Yukon Gold potatoes that need peeling, there’s Romaine lettuce that needs to be washed and torn into pieces, there’s five pounds of onions that need preparing for the soup and when all of that is done, there’s more. Talley I got you your apples so you can get started with the pies. Maggie, I wonder if you would do the Dark Chocolate Decadent Cakes. I think we’ll need two of them. In the meantime, I need to sear the roasts and then move them to the low temp oven.”
Raven and Talley began preparing ingredients and Maggie went to the pantry to begin gathering the cake ingredients.
Murphy had brought one oven to 600 degrees, and the other was set at 200 degrees. The roasts went into the hot oven and Murphy set her timer to 13 minutes.
Callie arrived and joined the work in the kitchen. Pete asked Whiskers if he wanted to join in the discussion at the Feline Studies Center. Whiskers quickly accepted and gave Talley a combined good morning and goodbye kiss.
Pete told Murphy not to worry that he and Whiskers would be back in plenty of time to help get ready for dinner.

Murphy said, “Oh, I’m not worried, I don’t think any of you want to miss this dinner!”
Pete and Whiskers took Lucy’s paws and Angel Lucy transported them to the FSC in an instant.
Murphy had put the recipes for each dish on the bulletin board in the kitchen. Maggie checked the recipe for the cake and said, “Murphy, I see that you’ve added almond extract to the cake. That should be good; I’m surprised that I’ve never thought of it before.”
Murphy nodded and said, “I’ve replaced the water with double strong coffee too. That should amplify the chocolate taste.”
Maggie thought about it and said, yes I believe it will.
At lunchtime they took a break and had a quickly assembled Tuna salad, after lunch they finished prepping and began to assemble the dishes. Murphy checked the roasts in the slow oven and found that they were slowly coming to proper temperature. She did a quick calculation and was satisfied that they would be ready 30 minutes before time to serve. There would be just enough time for the meat to rest before carving.
The big commercial mixer made short work of mashing the potatoes, and incorporating the sour cream, butter and pureed garlic. They would be returned to the warming oven and be ready to serve at dinnertime.
Ms Murphy ladled the fragrant onion soup into individual ramekins, topped them with a crisp slice of baguette and covered them with provolone and Swiss cheese. They were ready for the oven.
Maggie placed trays of rolls into the proofing oven to allow the dough to rise, making the rolls lights soft and tender.
Raven filled the ice cream maker with heavy cream, eggs, vanilla bean puree, sugar and that she had gently simmered. She secured the machine and turned it on.
Talley removed her pies from the oven and set them out to cool. The kitchen was filled with an amazing array of delicious odors.
Pete and Whiskers arrived home around three and found that everything was on schedule, that Murphy had arranged the preparation for dinner like a complex military operation. She immediately assigned them to build a fire in the fire pit on the patio, and in the fireplaces in the house.

Raven and Talley placed the extension leaves in the dining table and covered the surface with an immaculate white linen table cloth. They set the table with bold white Mikasa China, in a unique square pattern and added sterling silver flatware. Wine glasses, water glasses, all Wexford crystal from the trip to Ireland were placed in exact positions.
Talley actually used a ruler to assure the placement was precise.
The girls went upstairs to get ready, but not before admonishing Pete and Whiskers to leave the desserts alone. Maggie told them that the large Cheese and Fruit plate in the cooler room was for before dinner with wine, but that there was a smaller plate that they could sample from. Whiskers immediately went in and came back with it. They sampled the cheeses and pronounced them excellent. Pete said, “I guess we should change to, we got pretty dusty in the Ice Cavern. Murphy says it’s dressy casual, whatever that is.”
Whiskers said, “I actually, know what it is, Talley told me. I’ll be wearing nice khakis, a button down collared shirt, with no tie and a blazer.”
Pete asked, “what color blazer? We don’t want to look like we’re in uniform.”
Whiskers said, “ I only brought my navy blue one.”
Pete said, “Good, I just got my forest green one from the dry cleaners.”
They went up to change.
When they came down again the girls looked lovely. Whiskers went to Talley and gave her a big hug and a kiss. She laughed happily, “Don’t you look handsome!”
“And you’re beautiful my darling!”
They relaxed to wait for Smudge and Charlie………

Coronation Flights King Pushkin and Sir Malachi
Castle Airfield was a scene of purposeful activity. Thundie and Shaddie had landed their Eclipse Jet 500 just after seven AM on a sunny Thursday. The air was cool and the foliage on the mountains was a brilliant tapestry of reds oranges and yellows. Thundie and Shaddie gathered their flight bags and walked up the path from the Airfield to K Pete’s townhouse.
Angel Maggie was preparing breakfast when they entered. Already the smell of bacon, ham and fresh coffee filled the air. Pete was at the kitchen table and had a world nav chart open in front of him. His laptop was connected to the FAA (Feline Aviation Authority) flight plan database. He nodded to his friends and entered a last few keystrokes, before greeting them. “Hi Guys, you’re just in time for breakfast.”
Ms. Murphy asked Pete if he could move to the office so she and Raven could set the table. He folded his chart and closed his laptop. “I think we’ll move into the living room, where there’s more room. The rest of the pilots will be here soon and we can all fit in there without being crowded. Thundie picked up Pete’s clipboard and carried it into the living room. Raven waited until they were seated with the charts and laptop set up on the Coffee table, and then brought a tray in with mugs and a carafe of coffee on it. Thundie and Shaddie poured cups and thanked Raven.
Pete said, “Okay I just finished filing your flight plan, its three thousand nautical miles from here to Dublin International. You’ll have minimum, but adequate fuel reserves when you get there and the same coming back. You should be able to cruise at Mach 2 with no problems so that makes your flight time just over two hours.
The Jet Stream isn’t a factor because it’s up over Canada. Your Diplomatic Customs Waiver is filed and should only be a formality when you land. The limousines will be ready and the King is informed of your arrival time. He and his party will be ready. The motorcade from his estate may take a while, since large crowds are expected to line the route.”
Pete paused and took a sip from his coffee. Maggie announced that breakfast was served. They moved into the dining room, just as Whiskers and Callie arrived. Hedley, Neelix and Jakar came in followed by Rusty and Sir Clay. Talley hugged Whiskers, gave him a kiss and led him to the buffet that Maggie had set out. There were hot fresh catnip muffins, Eggs both scrambled and over-easy, Bacon, ham and sausage, along with fresh fruit, yogurt and biscuits. Everyone filled plates and Pete resumed the briefing.

“There’s a four hour time difference between here and Dublin so you’ll be on the ground in Ireland at 8:15 PM local time. Refueling will commence as soon as you shut down and should take no more than twenty minutes. The King should arrive by 9:00 PM and you’ll be cleared to take off as soon as the King and his party board the aircraft and settle in. “
Shaddie asked, “How many passengers will we have?”
Pete went through his paperwork and handed Shaddie a sheet. “This is your passenger manifest, The King and his party will number eight. You’ll have Rusty and Neelix as relief pilots aboard as and you’ll have Chyna dealing with the food service. Ms. Murphy will be helping her. Also, the kits will be aboard and you might want to let them see the cockpit. If you can be airborne by nine Dublin time, you should be back here by seven local time, taking the time difference into consideration. The Royal Carriage will be waiting for you and the Castle Staff will have the King’s Suite ready. They’ll have dinner ready, if the King calls for it. I suppose that will depend on how much of Chyna’s delicious Gumbo he eats.”
Thundie looked at the notes he had been taking, “I think we’ve got everything we need, Of course we’ll check weather again before takeoff but it all looks good. I’ll let Rusty be my co-pilot on the eastbound leg, and Shaddie can let Neelix get some stick time westbound.”
Pete smiled, “I was going to suggest something like that but you were ahead of me.”
They finished breakfast, and Pete said, Okay that takes care of getting king Pushkin here, let’s plan Malachi’s flight now! Why don’t we all move down to the briefing room at the airfield. Shaddie, Thundie, Neelix and Rusty can begin pre-flighting the Gulfstream while the rest of us work the details on the flight to and from Arizona.”
They walked down to the airfield and found that Angel Lucy-fur and Sylvia Seville had rolled the two Royal Aircraft out onto the tarmac. They both gleamed in the morning sun. Angel Sylvie walked over and shook paws with Shaddie & Thundie she began to explain where they were in the preflight process. As Pete, Hedley and Jakar, Talley, and Whiskers headed into the terminal building a van screeched to a stop at the gate to the parking apron. Pete looked around; Shilo was driving, and not very well. Through the open windows of the van, Pete could hear the kits complaining. He told the others to go ahead, and walked over to the van where Shilo was having a discussion with the Ramp security guard; the guard looked nervous and rested his paw on his sidearm. Pete asked, “Problem here?”
The guard didn’t take his eyes off of Shilo, but said, this cat doesn’t have a pass to drive on to the ramp, and he’s not cooperating.”
Pete walked forward and looked in the window, “Shiloh, where is the pass we sent to you?”

Shiloh looked sheepish and replied, “I think I must have lost it.”
Pete said, “And don’t you think it would have been a good idea to call me so that I could have made arrangements for you?”
“I didn’t want to bother you, Pete”
Pete was annoyed but trying to be patient. “So were you just going to run over our friend Tiger here, and crash through our fence?”
“Uh no, I’m sorry.” And he added to Tiger, I’m sorry Tiger, I was afraid we were going to be late, and losing the pass was my fault.
Tiger shook his head and said, “no problem sir, if you had explained I could have dealt with this for you without involving K Pete.”
Pete nodded to Tiger, “I’ll sign them in, please open the gate.”
Pete walked with Tiger to the guard house and signed the entry log.”
Then he walked back to the van and told Shilo, “Please, drive over to the Gulfstream. Park where Angel Sylvie directs you to and help Chyna and Angel Sylvie get the supplies aboard.”
Pete walked around to the Passenger side and, smiling, said, “Chyna I’m so happy you could help us with this Royal Flight. Chyna was still angry with Shilo, but Pete’s gracious manner soothed her and she said, “I guess I shouldn’t be surprised when Shilo does things like this, I asked him before we left the house if he had the packet you sent us.”
Pete told her, “it’s okay, I’ll talk with him. I’m really surprised. He was doing so well when we were in Cabo, If he can’t behave, I can’t have him on a Royal Flight that’s carrying the King. Angel Sylvie will help you get everything aboard and she’ll show you how the galley works. If you have any questions for me, just call me on my cell.”
Pete walked around to the driver window. “Shilo, I don’t want to be disappointed with you. Do you understand? Any more trouble and you’ll be standing here on the ground when this Royal Flight takes off. Do I have your word of honor that you’ll behave?”
Shilo nodded, obviously ashamed, and said, “Word of honor, Pete”
Pete nodded and walked away. On his way to the terminal, he saw Hot Rod coming out of the cafe; he’d brought a load of early arrivals to the Coronation. They exchanged greetings and Pete asked him what the rest of his day looked like. It turned out that he would be flying all up and down the east coast bringing kitties to ceremony. He said the Cessna Grand Caravan was doing great and that he was having a ball flying to the different cities bringing guests to the coronation. Pete asked if he’d eaten, telling him that had breakfast up at the townhouse and he replied that he’d just eaten in the café and would be leaving on a run to Virginia Beach as soon as he refueled the Caravan. Pete wished him well and entered the terminal

When He arrived at the briefing room he found that Whiskers had begun the briefing. On the big screen at the front of the room, were the chart and route map of the trip to Phoenix.
Whiskers said, “The distance is nineteen hundred miles, and cruising speed of 650 miles per hour makes it just under three hours. I’ve filed our flight plan and texted Sir Malachi with our arrival time. Lady Callie and Angel Maggie are provisioning the Aircraft now and say they’ll be finished in forty five minutes. Raven and Callie will do the food service. Whiskers looked at his notes; the menu tonight will be Caesar Salad, Baked French Onion Soup, carved Steamship Round of Roast Beef, Twice Baked Loaded Baked Potatoes, and Asparagus with Hollandaise sauce. For dessert there will be Cherries Jubilee. Yummy!”
Talley laughed as she noted Whiskers interest in the Royal menu.
Whiskers continued, “The limousines are already loaded and secured. I just had a call from Winston who says that The Hairballz Rainbow Riders will be here in fifteen minutes. Angel Lucy fur reports that the flight plan is loaded into the flight computer and the ground preflight checks are complete. She and Angel Sylvie have configured the forward Piano Lounge as a dining area. It should make serving and clearing a little easier.”
Whiskers looked at Pete, and said “Did I miss anything?”
Pete shook his head, “Nope, I think you got it all, A very good briefing. Now for crew assignments, why don’t Hedley and I start the trip, Jakar can slip in around Kansas City and you and Talley can bring us home.” At some point, we might want to see if Sir Malachi wants to look around the flight deck.
They were down to final details now and Pete went aboard the gulfstream SST to find Angel Maggie in the Galley with Chyna and they were exchanging recipes. The aircraft was immaculate, cleaner than the day it had been delivered at the plant in Savannah. Thundie and Shaddie were in the cockpit running the checklists, while Neelix and Rusty watched and took notes. Pete nodded to them and moved away without disturbing their work flow.
Satisfied that the flight for King Pushkin was as it should be, he left the Gulfstream and climbed the Stairway into the Dreamliner. As he always did, he marveled at the size and complexity of the huge aircraft. He entered the cockpit and found Hedley and Jakar viewing the routing and clearances on the flight computer. Hedley remarked, “you know what’s amazing? The flight computer in the Dreamliner is almost identical to the one in our Grand Caravan.”
Pete said, “That’s no accident, Hedley, we paid a lot to get that electronics suite in the Caravans. It makes it easier to upgrade our pilots.”
Jakar said, “The seats up here are a lot more comfortable though!”
Raven looked into the cockpit and said, “Pete, the Hairballz Riders are here, Winston and Talley are securing them now. The ramp can be retracted and the cargo hatch closed.”

Pete thanked her, nodded and switched seats with Neelix. Whiskers came forward and reported that all crew were aboard and that the Hairballz were seated in their area. Pete raised the loading ramp and when the indicator light turned green he secured the hatch. The green light came on and indicated a proper seal. “Ready to start, Hedley called the checklist from the flight computer and Pete confirmed the setting, The APU was started and the Aircraft went on internal power. Pete began starting the turbines. As number two started and the pressures and temps stabilized, they heard Shaddie’s voice as he requested taxi clearance. It was granted and the Gulfstream began to move. Talley retracted the boarding stairs and sealed the main cabin hatch. Then she picked up the intercom and told the flight deck that the cabin was secure and ready for flight. Ten minutes later they too lifted into a clear blue sky.
Talley and Whiskers spent the trip west planning their wedding. Callie and Angel Maggie saw to serving the Hairballz Rainbow Riders a light lunch and then joined Talley and Whiskers to consult on the Reception Menu.
DUBLIN IRELAND
Shaddie called in and requested landing clearance, it was granted and he pulled the throttles back and began to descend. Thundie called the numbers, and they were lined up. They touched down smoothly and taxied to the executive terminal where line crew directed them to secure section of the tarmac in front of the terminal.
Ms. Murphy opened the hatch and deployed the boarding stairs.
The limousines were waiting, a few curious onlookers had already gathered at the security cordon, some interested in the sleek Supersonic Executive Jet others waiting to see their King. Shaddie and Thundie secured the aircraft and deplaned. They spoke with the line crew to arrange refueling and decided that Shaddie would remain behind to keep an eye on the aircraft, while Ms. Murphy and Thundie drove the limousines to pick up His Royal Highness, King Pushkin. They pulled out with the flags of the Feline Empire fluttering on the fenders.
When they arrived at the King’s Estate, a footman assisted them in loading the luggage. When the King came down the steps to the waiting limousines, Thundie bowed deeply and Ms. Murphy curtsied. The king greeted them warmly. The King waited until his mom was escorted into the limo and then entered, His staff and guests followed suit. They departed the estate, When King Pushkin returned to his home he would be retired Royalty, able to take a well-deserved rest from his Royal responsibilities. A mounted motorcycle escort brought them through the heavy traffic with no delays, and the limousines drove to the foot of the red carpet leading to the aircraft steps.
A crowd had gathered, and while his guests and staff boarded the aircraft, King Pushkin walked over and addressed the crowd thanking them for their support and pledging to always have them in his heart. The crowd cheered and many waved Irish Flags

The King climbed the Stairs and Waved a last time. Ms. Murphy escorted him to his seat and made sure he was comfortable.
Thundie let Rusty do the honors, Rusty Keyed his microphone and said, “Dublin Tower this is Gulfstream zero zero one Sierra Sierra, changing call sign to Feline Force One, Request departure clearance!”
The Tower came back, “Roger that Feline Force One, cleared to active, departure at your discretion! Take Care of our King Captain!”
Rusty replied, with pride in his voice, “Roger that, Dublin Tower, he’s our King too!”
Thundie eased the throttles forward and they taxied out, at the active runway, they brought the engines to full thrust and climbed into the night sky. They were Chasing the sun, and as they approached the Atlantic Seaboard, the sky began to lighten. Thundie told Rusty, “This always amazes me; this thing is so fast that it travels faster than the earth rotates. You can see two sunrises in the same day.
They called Castle Field and were cleared to land. When they taxied up to the apron, a huge crowd was gathered all waving pennants and banners. As they shut down, Thundie called the tower and asked any word from K Pete?
The tower informed Thundie that Malachi’s flight was twenty minutes out.
Angel Lucy took charge of securing the aircraft and both Shaddie and Thundie thanked her. They were tired. As the king departed for the Castle the crowd cheered and waved happily. Thundie, Shaddie, Chyna, the kits (now sleeping and carried by Shilo) and Ms. Murphy borrowed one of the Golf Carts and drove up to the townhouse. Mungo Jerry ( a friend of Pete’s) was there and he had coffee made. He asked if they were hungry and they all said that they had eaten a lot of delicious Gumbo. Jerry told them that Pete had asked him to make up guest rooms and that they were all ready.
Shilo took the kits up and put them in bed. Shaddie and Thundie opened bottles of O’Douls, went out to the wide decks of the townhouse and sat back to relax.
PHOENIX ARIZONA
Sky Harbor was expecting them and it was with no surprise that they were cleared to land straight in. Jakar was at the controls, and Pete was following through with him. He was doing fine. They touched down and taxied to the area reserved for them. They shut down and before anyone else was of the aircraft Talley was accessing the cargo bay to unload the limousines and the motorcycles. Pete lowered the ramp and led the Hairballz Riders into the Cargo Bay. In minutes the limos and Bikes were on the ground and in position. Winston Led Motorcade out enroute to Sir Malachi’s home.
The streets in Malachi’s neighborhood were lined with well-wishers both Feline and Human. The Hairballz Rainbow Riders and the limousines pulled up in front of the house. The Riders stood at attention. The drivers loaded the luggage. Malachi escorted Ana to the second limousine. When everyone was loaded they began the motorcade ride back to Sky Harbor.

Malachi could only stare at the crowd behind the cordon, Ana said, “They all came to see you, Sweetheart!”
Malachi shook his head, “I think I’m a little nervous!”
Pete escorted Malachi and Ana from the limo and asked Malachi if he wanted to address the crowd, Malachi said he supposed that he should.
He took Ana’s arm and together walked over toward the throng. Malachi spoke in a strong clear voice and he told them how much he appreciated their support and good wishes. He said that he would treasure the memory of this fine send off for his whole life. The crowd erupted in applause. Malachi and Ana waved and turned to the waiting stairs. Raven had seated the guests and now she showed Malachi and Ana to their Royal Compartment. They put their coats away and Talley took the flowers that Ana had been given by a little girl kitty in the crowd to put in a vase. Raven showed them through the aircraft and took them up to the lounge/ dining area. When the tour was over, She took them down to the main level and asked if they would prefer to go to their compartment or ride in the open seating with their guests.
They elected to stay with their guests and invited all of the Hairballz Rainbow riders to join them for drinks.
The aircraft was secured and Talley and Whiskered completed their checklists. Talley called the tower for clearance and it was granted immediately. Whiskers eased the throttles forward and taxied out. They turned onto active and the aircraft surged forward and into the deep blue sky.
Dinner was served and the Steamship Round was a hit as lady Callie wheeled the cart around the table slicing the delicious meat expertly, carving from different areas to provide well done, medium, or rare as requested by the diners. Champagne toast were made repeatedly and the flight seemed very short, just after dessert, Whiskers announced over the intercom that they would be landing shortly and asked that the cabin be secured. Raven escorted everyone below, and Pete helped Lady Callie and Angel Maggie clear the dining area.
He told them, “Well, you served another magnificent Royal meal. You two should be proud.”
The aircraft touched down and taxied to the ramp thousands of kitties cheered and waved waiting for a glimpse of their king to be. The Royal Carriage pulled to the bottom of the steps and when Malachi and Ana stepped from the aircraft a Royal Footman helped them into it. The procession up the hill to the Castle was a pandemonium of cheers and whistles. Pete breathed a sigh of relief. Another Monarch safely delivered to his coronation. After Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy had secured the aircraft, Pete, Raven, Lady Callie Angel Maggie,Talley, Whiskers, Hedley and Jakar borrowed a golf cart and drove up to the townhouse. Showers felt great after the long day and when he came downstairs, everyone was watching a video of King Pushkin’s arrival.
Pete offered O’douls around and everyone took their beer out to admire the cool evening and the night sky.

Chyna’s Vacation – Coming Home
Chyna and the Vacationers were having breakfast in the Garden of the Villa del Arco Beach Resort & Spa. The management had placed huge bouquets of native flowers on all of the tables and buffet tables were laden with delicious fare. The kits had plates filled with Huevos Rancheros and crispy Churros, (of course they had pancakes and bacon as well.) Kimber had her camera and was taking lots of photos.
Thundie & Shaddie filled plates and joined Josie Mae and Monty & all of the Browns. Charlie and Raven followed by all of Charlie’s family, sat at the long table with Pete, Whiskers, Talley, Ms. Murphy and Angel Maggie. Waiters circulated with carafes of coffee and pitchers of Mimosas.
The plan for the day was for every to pack their luggage and it would be sent to the airport and loaded aboard the Lear 85. Chyna and her guests would have a last day of shopping, and Lunch at the famous Alexander’s Restaurant in the Marina. Pete and Whiskers would be going to the Airport early and would begin preflighting the Jet. Raven would see to the rest of the vacationers and bring them to the airport by three o’clock.
As they finished breakfast the kits asked Chyna if they could go to the airport with Uncle Pete and Uncle Whiskers. They said would like to take pictures of them getting the jet ready. Chyna said she would ask Pete. The kits ran over with her, and Chyna said, “Pete, The kits….. “
Pete smiled and said, “I heard, of course they can come. Whiskers and I will be glad to keep an eye on them. Who knows, they might decide they want to become pilots.”

Thundie & Shaddie were scheduled to fly the first leg of the trip and would be resting at the resort; But Angel Maggie and Lady Callie were already busy, having the resort staff prepare the inflight dinner that would be served on the trip home.
Talley was going back to Luz de Luna and would supervise the loading of the fish that were caught yesterday and then she would bring the iced fish to the airport where she would join in preparing the jet for the trip. As breakfast was ending and everyone started to head off to pack, Angel Yum Yum and Cody Lee & Ammie and Gus said they wanted to make a quick trip to one of the shops by the Marina, They wanted to get a few last minute gifts for friends at home. Raven said that she had time and would be glad to include their stop in shopping trip before lunch. Ammie thanked her and said they’d be quick with their packing and meet everyone on the portico with their bags.
The shopping was fun and lunch was a wonderful affair. The motor coaches pulled away from the restaurant on their way to the airport.
They arrived at the airport ten minutes early and Pete was making a last minute check of the baggage, and the fish. As he said, if they encountered turbulence, he didn’t want three hundred pounds of fish mixing with the baggage and gifts.
When he was sure that everything was secure he sealed the baggage compartment and headed for the cockpit. He and Whiskers had done the ground checks and now Talley and Whiskers were running the cockpit checks. He reported that the baggage compartment was secure.
Whiskers checked the indicator instrument and confirmed that the hatch was indeed sealed. Talley called, “APU Start!”
She watched the pressures and temperature stabilize and said, “Aircraft on internal power.”
Shaddie and Thundie were on the ground under the aircraft, helping get ready. When the APU started Thundie looked up at the cockpit and pointed to the big power cable. She gave him a thumbs up signal and motioned for him to disconnect the auxiliary power.
Pete always felt a thrill of excitement at the start of a trip and today was no different.
Lady Callie and Angel Maggie came up to him and reported that the Galley was ready for flight.
Pete thanked them and looked at his watch, thinking, now all we need is our passengers.
At exactly three o’clock Raven did her head count as the passengers boarded the Jet. She counted the guests twice and came up three kittens short. She was concerned but went to the cockpit to ask Pete where the kits were and she found Kimber on Talley’s lap, Winchester on Whiskers lap and Pete had Colt on his at the flight engineers position. As they ran the checklist they guided the kits little paws to set the various switches. Raven said, “Reporting that all passengers and crew are aboard.”

Whiskers, in the Pilot’s Seat, said, very good, would you please get everyone settled and report when the cabin is ready?”
Raven nodded, “The little passengers?”
Pete said, “We’ll bring them back when Shaddie and Thundie come forward.”
Raven returned to the cabin to find Chyna looking for the kits. She told her don’t worry they’re up front learning to fly the plane.”
Chyna sat down, wiped her brow and said, “Oh my!”
Raven laughed and moved on to get everyone settled. Ms. Murphy told her that all of the last minute purchases had been stowed in the cabin baggage locker and the passengers were seated and belted. Raven asked Thundie and Shaddie, to go forward.
When Shaddie opened the cockpit door Whiskers asked, “Would it be okay if our guests asked for clearance?”
Shaddie smiled, “of course, go ahead.”
Whiskers placed his headset on Kimber’s head and said, “go ahead, just like we practiced.”
Kimber keyed the mic with yoke switch and said, “Cabo San Lucas Tower, This is November Three Zero Lima Juliet request Permission to Taxi to active.”
The tower responded immediately, “Three Zero Lima Juliet, Cleared to Taxi hold at Active for Heavy traffic on short final.”
Whiskers nodded to Kimber and she keyed the mic again and said “acknowledge, cleared to active and hold for traffic. Roger.”
She smiled broadly, “Did I do okay?”
Pete said, “you did great, now let’s make room for Uncle Shaddie and Uncle Thundie to take us home.”
Shaddie and Thundie Changed Places with Talley and Whiskers, Pete got up and started to usher the kits out, Shaddie said, “Why don’t we let Winchester sit in the engineers seat and she can get us our takeoff clearance, When we land at Reid-Hillview, Colt can get us our clearance.”
The kittens beamed happily.
Talley hugged Whiskers and kissed him they found their seats and belted in.
In the cockpit Shaddie & Thundie advance the throttles and the jet begins to move over the tarmac. They taxi to the active runway and hold as a Gulfstream G650 touches down. Shaddie nodded at Winchester and Winchester keyed the mic and said, “Cabo San Lucas Tower, this is Three Zero Lima Juliet, request takeoff clearance.”
The tower responded, “Three Zero Lima Juliet, cleared for takeoff, have a good flight captain!”
Thundie & Shaddie moved the Throttles forward and the jet surged forward. Thundie called the numbers and Shaddie responded. “Gear, Flaps & Slats” Shaddie retracted the landing Gear and dumped the flaps as the speed came up. They were climbing fast .
They leveled off at 48000 feet and headed north.

Lucy and Sylvia went ahead into the hangar to have the Gulfstream SST brought out to the apron.
Pete, Whiskers and Talley went to the Flight Line Café (The Airport Diner) to get a quick breakfast. They were surprised to find Thundie and Shaddie already there, chatting with Rusty and Clay. They pushed a couple of tables together and the waitress brought coffee and juice for Shaddie, Thundie, and Clay and Milk for Rusty. She told them that their bacon and cheese omelets would be right out.
She took Tally and Whiskers’ order for ham, waffles and scrambled eggs and then moved on to Pete. He ordered eggs bacon and hash browns for Angels Lucy and Sylvie, as well as for himself. The Waitress checked that she had their taken their orders properly and promised to hurry back with coffee and orange juice for them.
Pete told Clay the Gulfstream was being moved out of the hangar, and that they would go aboard after they finished breakfast.
Pete took a crew Roster from flight case, He said, “I have Whiskers and Shaddie as Pilot and Co-Pilot, Talley and Thundie as backup. Angel Maggie and Callie will handle the Galley and prepare the in-flight lunch. One point about that, you’ll actually have to slow down to give them time to serve and clear away the food. Raven and Ms. Murphy will be serving, and they’ll let you know how it’s progressing, so you can adjust your arrival time at the Castle accordingly. I’m going to be aboard with Rusty and Clay, if he wants to come, so from time to time we’ll be in the cockpit but we won’t disturb you.” Pete started to say more, but their food came. The Omelets that Clay, Rusty, Shaddie and Thundie ordered looked good. Angels Lucy and Sylvie walked in just time to have their food arrive.

Pete said, “Good timing, Lucy!”
Lucy smiled and said, “Angels know these things.”
They began to eat.
Neelix, Hedley and Jakar arrived along with their first load of passengers. They would be flying into and out of small airports up and down the East Coast all day. They handed the waitress their Thermos Bottles and asked that she fill them with coffee. Hot Rod Joined them at the counter with a similar request. They stopped by the table and exchanged greetings. Hot Rod said, “Beautiful day for flying, I’m headed for New Orleans to pick up Wolfie and some of his friends. Then I’m off to Knoxville to pick up… (He looked at his notes) Ollie, Autumn, and some of their friends.”
Ammie came in and sat down then noticed her friends and joined them. “I saw the SST outside. That is some aircraft. It looks more like a spaceship than an aircraft.”
Pete and his friends finished their food. Pete paid the check and told the waitress to put all of the pilots’ food and drinks on the Royal Squadron Account. He tipped her generously and said, “We were about to preflight the SST. If any of you would like to take a look at her, you’re more than welcome. We’ll be leaving soon, well as soon as we get pre-flighted.”
Talley told them that Julius Steven and Vika in the C-130 would be leaving with the Hairballz Rainbow Riders’ Bikes and the Limousines in the next few minutes.
The apron was a busy scene. Shaddie and Whiskers began their preflight inspection, while Pete deployed the stairs and led the rest of the pilots aboard the New Gulfstream. There were the expected exclamations at the opulent interior and the sophisticated cockpit.
Once everyone had had their look at the new aircraft, the checkout continued. Whiskers loaded the flight plan into the computer, while Shaddie conducted the cockpit checks.
Lady Callie and Angel Maggie checked the galley and made coffee. Raven, and Ms. Murphy made sure that the flowers in the cabin were fresh and that the newspapers was ready for his Highness and his guests. Rusty and Clay were assigned seats in the crew cabin, aft of the cockpit. It was almost time to fly.

Ms. Murphy retracted the stairs and sealed the hatch. She walked down the aisle checking that everyone was ready, She picked up the intercom and reported to Whiskers that the Cabin was ready.
Shaddie engaged the auto start sequence for the Port Turbine and when the temperatures and pressures stabilized, he repeated the sequence for the Starboard Turbine.
Whiskers keyed his mike and contacted the tower “November Zero Zero One Sierra Sierra, Requests clearance to taxi to active.”
The Tower responded. “One Sierra Sierra, you are cleared to active. Hold short for Gulfstream G650 on final. “
Whiskers acknowledged and Shaddie eased the throttles forward and taxied the sleek jet toward the active runway.
The G650 roared over the threshold and touched down. Shaddie could see that It was Cherish and Angel Winslow returning from Ireland with the new COTM candidate, Sir Pushkin and kitties from all over Europe.
Shaddie held short and Whiskers contacted the tower, requesting takeoff clearance. It was granted and Shaddie pushed the throttles to the stops. The jet accelerated rapidly, pushing everyone deep into their seats. Whiskers called the numbers, “V1 ……. VR……” The nose came up, the jet was climbing, Whiskers called, “Gear, Flaps to 10, slats retract!”
Shaddie held the rate of climb while Whiskers configured the jet for cruise climb. They broke ten thousand feet and Shaddie accelerated to near the speed of sound. They turned south and streaked toward Raleigh.
When they touched down in Raleigh, A small crowd had gathered at the executive terminal. The aviation community was anxious to get a look at the new groundbreaking aircraft.
As they taxied toward the reception area, Mallow watched from the window and saw the Bikes lined up and waiting in front of the Limousines.
Shaddie, directed by a line boy, braked to a stop, and shut down the turbines. Back in the Cabin, Raven opened the hatch and deployed the stairs.
Quickly the Hairballz ran down the stairs and mounted their bikes. Pete drove one Limo and Talley the other. The motorcade moved out toward Angel Marley’s home. As they turned onto the block, neighbors lined the street. Talley & Pete assisted Angel Marley’s family with their luggage and assisted everyone into the Limousines. When they were aboard, the motorcade pulled out to return to the airport.

As the new King crossed the red carpet, climbed the stairs and stepped into the cabin. Whiskers said to Shaddie, “Why don’t you do the Honors!”
Shaddie, nodded toward Rusty and said, “Why don’t we let him do it.”
Rusty said, “You mean change the call sign?”
Both Whiskers and Shaddie nodded. Whiskers handed Rusty a hand held mike. Rusty keyed and said, Raleigh tower, this is November Zero Zero One Sierra Sierra, changing call sign to Feline Force One.”
The tower came back, “Roger, Feline Force One, we copy, you are cleared to taxi and takeoff at pilot’s discretion.”
Rusty replied, Roger, Raleigh, we acknowledge, Cleared to taxi and takeoff at pilots discretion.” He handed Whiskers the mike. He was shaking with excitement. “That was fantastic!”
Angel Marley had heard what was going on and he put his head in the cockpit, “Thank you Rusty, for taking care of that for us.”
Rusty said, “Oh my…. Your Highness it was my honor!”
Raven escorted his highness back to the Royal Suite and offered him a seat and the morning newspaper, and a breakfast menu. She told him that there would coffee as soon as they leveled off at cruise altitude.
The Hairballz rode their bikes into the C-130 right behind the Limousines. They helped Julius Steven secure them and quickly, made their way aboard Feline Force One, where they took their seats and belted in. Angel Marley’s guests marveled at the opulence of the cabin. Raven and Ms. Murphy helped everyone get settled and reported the cabin secure. Whiskers and Shaddie had switched seats and Whiskers started up and prepared to taxi.
In moments they were airborne. King Angel Marley ordered coffee juice and fresh baked sweet rolls. Angel Maggie and Lady Callie served the King and his guests while Raven and Ms Murphy served the Hairballz Rainbow Riders, Talley rode with her fellow Hairballz and enjoyed their company and friendship. When the guests had finished their breakfast and the dishes had been cleared away, Raven notified the cockpit that food service was completed. Whiskers nudged the speed up and in a short while, they were on final into Castle Field.
When Feline Force One stopped at the red carpet there was a huge crowd of kitties gathered to welcome the new king.
As he descended the steps the crowd noise rose to a roar of good wishes and shots of congratulations. Angel Marley stepped into the Royal Carriage and waving to the crowd as he went, was driven up to the Castle where Queen Angel Yum Yum waited to greet him!
