About Me

Active within 1 Day

Hi! My name is Angel Maggie COTD March 7, 2013

I am an American Shorthair from Jacksonville, FL

Nicknames: Princess Margaret, Sweetie Cat

Age: 21 years old

Gender: F

Coat: short haired

Education: I can stand on my hind feet like a prairie dog, I look really cute doing it. I can also style mom and dad's hair while they sleep, They just don't know how to groom themselves as well as I do.

My favorite tricks and treats are: No I don't do tricks, I am just so sweet natured and loving that people can't help but love me back, and I really like ice cream. Vanilla is the best. Sometimes I lick it too fast and it makes my nose wrinkle, I think humans call it a brain freeze

Where I hang out: During the day, on the pillow in the window behind the desktop monitor, That window overlooks the bird feeders and it's fun to watch the birds and the squirrels, At night I like to stretch out wherever mom and dad are.

My favorite grubs: I like fancy feast dry, but I'm supposed to eat the Iam's senior cat food that is in my bowl. I also like bits of cheese, and chicken from the table.

My pet peeves: Any sudden noise, Any people I don't know. Peter bothering me

What I love about my owners: They are not my owners!!!! They are my family, and I love that they pet me, cherish me and love me as much as I love them.

My cat hobbies: snuggle with dad or mom while they watch tv or read. I also like to help with the computers.

Pet motto: Sweetness is it's own reward

Good Night Sweet Angel Lady Maggie!
Good night sweet sister! I wanted to make sure I shared this cute story with you sweetie! I'll see you in the morning!

Sending you lots of purrs and hugs.

Why Cats Have Fur =^.^=
~~~~~
In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the Earth. On the fifth day he created the cat but, unlike today, the cat was without fur.

This was fine for awhile; it was cool in the summer and easy to keep clean. Plus there were no problem with hair balls.

After a while, other animals with fur started to tease this hairless creature. They would sing, "Ha, ha, the hairless cat, the hairless cat is ugly and fat!"

"Oh how beautiful the other animals are with their colorful coats of fur," thought the hairless cat.

But soon the cat forgot the taunts and was proud again, for it was beautiful in its own way.

Then winter came and it got cold. The cat tried to keep warm; he curled up under bushes and with other animals, but was not as warm as his friends.

When the cat tried to find warm places to stay, he was never able to get comfortable and was always getting bumps and scratches.

One cold night as the cat was curled up under a bush and staring at the sky, a rabbit came by.

"Why are you so sad, cat?" asked the bunny.

"I have no fur and I am ugly and cold." replied the cat.

The rabbit cuddled next to the cat and whispered to him in his ears, "If you wish on a shooting star, and believe, your wish can come true."

Just about that time a star glimmered across the sky and the cat knew what to do. The cat closed his eyes tightly and said, "I wish, I wish I had fur and also all other cats of the world had beautiful coats of fur like other animals."

The cat opened his eyes just in time to see the star vanish behind the moon.

A few seconds later the moon began to glow as brightly as the sun and cats all over the world came out of hiding to see the bright light. As the light faded, fur began to grow on the cat. Within minutes the cat and all other cats had beautiful coats of fur. Some long, some short, and of different colors. From then on, the cat was not teased or cold. And the fur also protected the cat from injuries.

This is why cats have fur.

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
My Mom took Whiskers and me for our walk this morning and we spotted two deer running through the brush. It was so nice to know they are still around. Mom always fills up the bucket by the empty creek with water and it’s always empty. So maybe the deer are drinking it!

We are actually expected to get some rain tomorrow! Whoo hoo! Only about ¼ of an inch, but we’ll take whatever we can get. My Mom is all set to take Ebony to the vet in the morning. Ebony is back to letting Mom pet him and last night he even purred while she combed his fur. Ebony really likes canned tuna, so Mom is going to use that to hopefully get him into the cat carrier without a fuss.

Whitey and Orangie are doing fine, catnapping in the upstairs bedroom window since it’s not too warm today.

My Mom just got back after sitting outside in the backyard talking to Ebony and Sugar Bear. And guess what?! Ebony started to purr while Mom was petting him and he kept coming back to bump his head against her hand for more pets! His purr is very low and he even meowed at her a couple of times. His meow is very low too, almost a grrrr sound, but Mom knew he was trying to meow. Ebony let Mom pet him for almost a half hour! Mom told him what she plans to do tomorrow with him and she is praying he forgives her again after it's all over. I'll be sure to let you know what happens tomorrow.

I left you a vote with soft purrs and hugs sweet sister of mine, plus something to make you smile.

Why Don't Cats Wash Before They Eat?
~~~~~
As legend goes, the cat once caught a mouse and was about to eat the tasty little morsel when the mouse chided the cat for her bad manners. "What?" cried the mouse, "You're going to eat me without first washing your face and hands?"

The mortified cat immediately dropped the mouse and began washing, and the clever little mouse quickly ran away.

Ever since, cats have not washed up before dinner. =^.^=

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
Whiskers just received a reminder from Sandy, Ana and the Angels about their Sport's Day on Wednesday and a sleepover on Tuesday. If we go to the sleepover, maybe you and I can come up with some treats for every kitty to snack on. We can meow about it in the morning.

Our outside fursibs, Ebony and Sugar are still in our backyard. My Mom needs to take Ebony back to see the vet sometime this week. She’s not looking forward to it, but Ebony is back to rubbing against her legs, so it looks promising.

I left you a vote sweet sister with purrs, hugs and something to make you smile. See you tonight sweetie.

"Cats are less loyal than dogs, but more independent." (This is code. It means: "Cats are smarter than dogs, but they hate people.") Many people love cats. From time to time, newspapers print stories about some elderly widow who died and left her entire estate, valued at $3,200,000, to her cat, Fluffkins. Cats read these stories, too, and are always plotting to get named as beneficiaries in their owners' wills. Did you ever wonder where your cat goes when it wanders off for several hours? It meets with other cats in estate-planning seminars. I just thought you should know. =^.^=

-from “Cats” according to Dave Barry

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
I'm just pawing by to meow at you sweet sister. It has been awfully quiet at our house today. Whiskers and I have been staying close to Mom. She told us our purr therapy is helping her feel better.:)

See you tonight sweet angel.

Not only is there always another good animal
in need of a good home,
but we must remember to be thankful
for the time and love our animals give us
while they are here.
Take time to enjoy them and learn from them.
As painful as it is to lose them,
they teach us to love unselfishly,
they teach us to live each day to the fullest,
they teach us to grow old gracefully,
and they teach us to die with dignity.
We do them disrespect
to focus only on the sorrow of their death
when they have given us so much joy through their life.
If we wish to honor them,
take what they have given us,
all that love,
and give it back to another animal
in need of help.

-- Kent C. Greenough

Just pawing by to wish you sweet dreams and remind you of how much I love you. I know you know sweetie. I'll miss you tomorrow, but we're always together in our hearts...

I left a vote with purrs and hugs. I knew you'd like the poem below...♥
~~~~~
I believe that the loss of a beloved companion animal
is like no other loss
because our relationships with animals are like no other.
Our culture tells us that an animal companion is an engaging toy,
and that our grief over its death is alarming and ill-paced.
And our culture is just flat wrong.
As a survivor of advanced cancer myself,
I believe that the love and comfort of animals
in great measure graced me with recovery.
This being the case,
I would not be one to take kindly
to any cultural diminishment of our relationship with 'the other.'
Bluntly put, 'Them's fightin' words' in my world.
Animals are more to us than we know.
Their partnership with us is a holy one
that endures across a lifetime
and possibly beyond. =^.^=

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
I know we may make light of our canine furiends from time to time, but it’s all in good fun and I respectfully share with you a small tribute to our furry furiends. My Mom always reminds us, she was a dog lover her whole life. It wasn't until her last two dogs became angels, she knows they had a paw in bringing us kitties here to our furever home.

In memory of the animals we lost that tragic day, September 11, 2001, as well as the animals who lost their owners. All are furever in our hearts. ♥

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

The Few, The Proud......The Dogs of 9/11
~~~~~
A quote from a ground zero witness:

“Urban Search and Rescue dogs that were deployed at Ground Zero included Australian shepherds, German shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Labradors, Border Collies, Portuguese Water Dogs, Belgian Malinois, Giant Schnauzers, and even Rat Terriers. What a dog could do with its nose was invaluable in the search. What a dog could do with its heart was equally invaluable.”

The dogs were able to lift the spirits of stressed workers. Cops and firemen, as well as the handlers, took great comfort from the dogs at a time when they battled exhaustion, despair, and stress. One account states: “It was beyond amazing what a licking tongue could do to lift a crushed human spirit, restoring morale to discouraged and depressed workers at Ground Zero”
~~~~~
Most of these wonderful dogs are gone now, but a few are still with us today as we pause to remember all the victims, and all the heroes of September 11, 2001. Never has man had a truer, finer friend than a dog. Today we offer them the honor and respect they deserve. Friends. Warriors. Rescuers. God bless them all, and a prayer of thanksgiving to Him for gifting us with such wonderful creatures.

Hi Sweet Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
Today was Petco Day and our Mom came home with everything on our list. She bought a couple of bags of some new Temptations called “Tumblers.” The bag says, “Now you can roll, toss or bounce delicious treats for your cats!” I don’t know about all of that, but we had fun eating them! Mom also got some catnip cat toys, mainly for our outside fursibs, but we got some too. Sugar Bear really loves doing the bunny-kick with her Cosmic Catnip Banana. Ebony is still aloof towards Mom after the trip to the vet, but he is slowing getting closer to her again when she sits out in the backyard with them.

I left you a vote sweet sister of mine with lots of purrs and hugs and a pretty poem just for you.
~~~~~
Warm light coming from far below,
Twinkling, sparkling is the candle's glow.
All is well up on the ridge,
The place we know as Rainbow Bridge.

Furbabies sleeping in heaven's light,
Tended by candles in the night.
Peaceful dreams be theirs to keep,
As they slumber in this night so deep.

Hearts on earth that miss them so,
Take comfort in the candle's glow.
Watching for them in skies above,
Bound eternally by a cord of love.

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
I had to share something with you that will make you smile. My Mom is a nut!

Whiskers and I were out for our stroller walk with Mom this morning. We still take water to fill up the always empty bucket by the dried up creek, but we haven’t seen any deer in a long time. The walking trail is usually deserted in the morning, but the past few days we’ve been passing a lady walking her small dog that likes to yip and yap at us. The lady scolded her dog for barking at a baby stroller, so Mom had to tell her it’s a cat stroller carrying two big cats. MOL! Now the lady and her doggie RUN by us. Mom has a good laugh when we see them!

Hee, hee, hee! I left you a vote sweet sister, with lots of purrs and hugs.

There must be a heaven
for the animal friends we love.
They are not human,
yet they bring out our own humanity ~
sometimes in ways that other people cannot.
They do not worry about fame or fortune ~
instead they bring our hearts nearer to the joy of simple things.
Each day they teach us little lessons
in trust and steadfast affection.
Whatever Heaven may be,
there's surely a place in it
for friends as good as these. =^.^=

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
Well Sis, my Mom still has not been successful at getting Ebony into the cat carrier for a trip to the vet - BUT, Mom is gaining Ebony and Sugar Bear's trust while she has them both confined in our backyard. The only bad thing about that is Whiskers and I can't go outside while they are there. Mom tells us it's not forever. We do get to go for our cat stroller walks every morning, so I can't complain too much.

There was a news story recently about coyotes in some of the surrounding areas, killing neighborhood pets. Coyotes out here are very unusual and the drought is being blamed. So Mom is kind of glad she has Ebony and Sugar Bear locked up in the backyard.

I am having a terrific weekend with you and the family! I love you sis!

I left a happy vote with soft purrs and kitty kisses.

A Place in Heaven =^.^=
~~~~~
Is there a place in Heaven
Where furry companions go
Before I'd want to go there
I'd really need to know

A being pure of spirit
And a being without sin
Is surely one that should be there
But does God let him in?

The theologians argue
A soul is what they lack
But one who's always there for you
Should be given something back

I could not face eternity
Without paws and tails
And if that's what religion thinks
Then that is where it fails

I hope God doesn't let me down
I'm sure He knows their worth
For we who have been loved by them
Have Heaven here on Earth!

Hi Angel Maggie!
Callie here! My Mom is at the library using their computer and it has a one hour timer on it. Yikes! Type faster Mom. There is a lot of construction on our street right now. Our outside fursibs Ebony and Sugar were scared yesterday, so my Mom lured them into the backyard this morning, where they are safe. Whiskers and I were watching them from the back sliding door, wondering why we can't go out in the backyard to meet them. Mom says not yet.

We should have our internet back up soon my dear sister. Mom is going to browse around the library after she does our voting. This computer is much slower than Mom's computer at home!

Sending you soft purrs and hugs.

My Mom gave our outside fursib Sugar Bear her final dose of antibiotics today. Hooray for Sugar Bear! Her nose looks like it has a scab that is getting smaller day-by-day. Ebony and Sugar Bear are both doing fine.

I can’t believe another month is coming to an end. Who would of thought in January we’d still be meowing to each other on CC?! Happy days!

Our new fursib Sugar Bear is almost done with her antibiotics and her nose looks good. The scab is starting to peel off her nose. Whatever caused it seems to be healing. My Mom just finished feeding them and they both ate a lot! Whiskers and I watch them from the bay window.

I had a wonderful time at Fluffinella and Joey Brown's wedding. It was beautiful!

I'll see you in the morning sweetie.

Things A Cat Thinks About While Catnapping =^.^=
~~~~~
• I could have sworn I heard a can opener.

• Is there something I'm not getting when humans make noise with their mouths?

• Why doesn't the government do something about dogs?

• Hmmmm.... If dogs serve humans, and humans serve cats, why can't we ever get those STUPID dogs to do anything for us?

• Hey - no kidding, I'm sure that's the can opener.

• Would humans have built a vast and complex civilisation of their own if we cats hadn't given them a reason to invent sofas and can openers in the first place.

• If there's a God, how can He allow neutering?

• If that really was the can opener, I'll play finicky just to let THEM know who's boss !!

How to Care for Your Humans...
(Useful Advice for Cats - Final Part 11)

Inspection of the House =^.^=

A house usually has unlimited possibilities for suitable sleeping spots. Every possibility no matter how theoretical should be investigated and tested. Cardboard boxes, cupboards, drawers, couches and beds are obvious localities, but places such as old slippers (size 11 or higher) open gym bags or kitchen cupboards should not be overlooked. The house should further be investigated for all possible toys. An old sock can represent several hours of entertainment if you get your claw on a loose end and unravel a couple of miles worth of yarn. You human will love to tidy up after your play.

With frequent and diligent application of these tips, your human will be trained in no time at all and most importantly; your human will be very well cared for! MOL!

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
A 6.1 earthquake rattled the north bay town of Napa this morning at 3:20. We didn’t feel it where we live in San Jose and thankfully not too many people have been reported injured (so far). There was a lot of structural damage though. The news is monitoring the event non-stop right now. We are praying for all the people and animals that are affected by this very scary event.

My Mom gave our new outside fursib, Sugar Bear her 6th dose of medicine this morning. Sugar Bear’s nose is looking much, much better!

Whew! Lot's of stuff happening today. My Mom's phone keeps ringing with her family hearing about the earthquake this morning! We heard from the Pawty Animals and they are doing okay. They live very close to the epicenter of the quake!

Let's enjoy our fun-filled day sweet sister. We have our trip to Arizona and King Spanky's Water Sports Day at the Castle. Never a dull moment for us kitties!

How to Care for Your Humans...
(Useful Advice for Cats - Part 10)
~~~~~
Door Training =^.^=

One of the first things you need to teach your human is to open the front door, the garden door and backdoor when required. This is done by walking up to a door and making an impatient and very loud meow. Make some tripping steps with your back paws obviously indicating that you need to go to the outdoor litter box.

When your human has gotten up from the couch and opened the door you decide that you do not really need to go outside right now. Just for appearances, you can stand in the open door and pretend that you are thinking about the situation for a few seconds before you turn around to go inside again. Repeat this procedure several times a day. This will keep your human in good door opening form.

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
Yes sweet sister of mine, Ebony is a big boy. My Mom is guessing he weighs about 12-13 lbs. My Mom has been able to pet him more and more everyday. She's not sure what he'll do if she tries to pick him up, but Mom would like to take him to our vet for a check up and vaccinations. Mom as always is taking baby steps!

My Mom had a tough time trying to give Sugar Bear her 4th dose of medicine. Sugar Bear was nowhere to be found this morning, sending my Mom into a panic. Mom searched the front yard calling out for Sugar Bear while shaking a bag of Temptations. Then Mom noticed Ebony looking under the big hedge that divides our house from our neighbors. Mom got down on her knees with her flashlight and saw two little eyes peering back at her. Yep! It was Sugar Bear! The little kitty finally got wise to Mom’s tactics and was hiding from her! Us cats are so smart. MOL! So Mom fed Ebony and then mixed the Clavamox with some Fancy Feast in a bowl and pushed it under the hedge near Sugar Bear. Mom sat outside by the garage, petting Ebony and watching Sugar Bear. Good mews! Sugar Bear ate the whole bowl, much to Mom’s surprise. That just seemed too easy! We'll see how tomorrow goes. Sugar Bear's nose is looking much, much better!

We were so sad to hear today about sweet little Bugsy crossing the Rainbow Bridge. My Mom really thought the precious kitten had a fighting chance. He was a tough guy! We were so shocked when we heard, my Mom had to lay down and cry for awhile. Whiskers and I stayed with her. We know our Mom worries about all us. My Mom is spending the day with her sister-in-law tomorrow and wants to be strong for our Aunt Donna. Mom is going to try her very best not to cry.:(

We're all looking forward to Sunday with Blue and his family. Sweet dreams to you sweet Angel Maggie. I left you a vote with soft purrs and warm hugs.

How to Care for Your Humans...
(Useful Advice for Cats - Part 10)

Training your Human =^.^=

Sometimes it can be necessary to discipline even the most well trained human. However, do remember never to hit a human. At the most, mark with a soft paw on the human's arm or hands. Try first to make your human understand what it has done wrong. And most importantly: be patient! The human intellect is relatively limited and it can be difficult for them to understand our wishes and needs.

Even after approximately 5000 years of domestication, the human species still has primitive instincts and it does take time to train your human completely.

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
I have some mews on our two new outside fursibs, Ebony & Sugar Bear...

My Mom finally heard back from Denise, the lady from Alley Cat Allies. Denise found out Ebony was T-N-R’d way back in July 2010. Denise said 2010 was the first year of helping feral cats for the Feral Freedom Organization. Ebony was estimated to be approx. 2-3 years old in 2010. So Ebony is probably 6-7 years old now. BUT - Ebony is not from the same feral colony as Sugar Bear. Ebony was released to a colony located about 3 miles from my Mom’s house. So Denise doesn’t know what happened between 2010 and now, or how Ebony got here. Denise said Ebony was listed on his paperwork back in 2010 as a “Big Black Cat.” Denise laughed because my Mom always refers to Ebony as the “big cat.”

What remains a mystery is how and why Ebony and Sugar Bear became such good furiends? They are complete opposites! (With the exception they are both black cats, but Ebony is shorthaired and Sugar Bear is longhaired.) Ebony is big and very calm and quiet. Sugar Bear is small and can barely keep still for more than a minute. Sugar Bear is maybe a year old or less. Now we know Ebony could be 8 years old. They kind of remind us of Whitey and Orangie. It’s nice to know us cats really do look out for each other.:)

I left a vote with soft purrs and warm hugs for you sweet sister. See you tonight!

P.S. My Mom got dose number 3 of Sugar Bear’s medicine down this morning. The mornings seem to be the best time to catch Sugar Bear off guard!

House-guests =^.^=

House-guests require special attention and handling. The following procedures should be followed:

House-guests that either do not like us or are allergic to us: As soon as they sit down - jump onto their lap.
Noisy children that run after you and/or pull your tail: It is your duty to punish them - it can be necessary to use both claws and teeth. However, be prepared that this can result in noise that is even more annoying and of an even louder decibel level.
Guests that try to get in contact with you by ingratiating themselves and speaking in a sweet voice: Should just be ignored. If they try to approach you, back away 5-6 feet - but never further away than they feel encouraged to try again. With a bit of practice this game can he kept going for hours.

Good night sweetie. My Mom was unsuccessful again tonight giving Sugar Bear her medicine, so it looks like we'll try again in the morning. Sugar Bear's nose does look a lot better though. We hope it stays that way. I'll see you in the morning. Sweet dreams Angel Maggie. I love you dear sister.

Sleeping Time =^.^=

It is important for us cats to prioritize our sleeping time. The objective is to get as much sleep done as possible while your human is awake. You will then be especially well rested and bushy-tailed at night when it is your job to keep your human awake. There is the classical "play with toes" approach: attack everything that moves under the duvet. You can also reenact highlights from last year's Grand National Steeplechase by repeatedly galloping across the bed. A couple of loud meows will give it an extra exiting dimension for your human.

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
Good night sweet sister of mine. My Mom was outside with Ebony and Sugar Bear for quite a while tonight. Sugar Bear is very smart and she knew Mom wanted to give her her medicine. She wouldn't let my Mom get close enough to grab her. She's a wily one! Mom is going to try again in the very early morning. That seems to be the best time. Keep your paws crossed. Sugar Bear's nose did look better though.

Sweet dreams sweetie. I left you a vote with purrs and hugs and something to make you smile.:)

More Ways To Prevent Your Human From Wasting Valuable Time =^.^=

Cleaning: stalk the vacuum cleaner and attack when it passes by. You can also pretend that you want to attack the vacuum cleaner but "accidentally" catch a foot instead. (A sure way to get the vacuum monster shut off immediately!)

Garden work: jump repeatedly up-and-down and scatter any leaves that your human has raked together. Attack gardening tools, especially while they are in use. Immediately dig up any newly planted seeds, plants and flowers.

Under no circumstances accept closed doors that separate you from your human. At all times you have a right to know what your human is doing. If by accident you have been placed on the wrong side of a door you need to make your human aware of this ASAP so he/she can remedy the situation immediately. Loud meows and scratching on the door should be sufficient to get your human's attention. If this is ignored you need to take more drastic measures: Make a sound as if you are going to throw up. All humans in a 50 feet radius can hear this sound. This sound can also be heard through closed doors. The "puke sound" will always result in your human's immediate presence.

hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
I'm just pawing by to say good night and sweet dreams. You and Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie did wonders with Sugar Bear tonight. My Mom was able to give Sugar Bear her first dose of the awful tasting medicine. My Dad helped and it went smoothly. I know you Angels had a paw it! Mom is hoping Sugar Bear doesn't get too mad at her.

My Mom just checked on Sugar Bear and Ebony. They were both sitting on top of the feeding house. It is a warm night and Mom just put a nice fleece bed on top of the house for them. The new outdoor cat house my Mom ordered for them was delivered today. Now Mom needs to put it together, probably on Wednesday. It looks very nice. Keep your paws crossed the two kitties think so too. The greenhouse project won't begin until next week. Things move kind of slow here compared to around our house. MOL!

It'll be fun tomorrow watching Whiskers substitute for Neekah Boo's classroom. I told him you and I would fix lunch for the classroom kitties like always. We better get to bed sweetie. Big day tomorrow!

Sending you soft purrs and warm hugs my dear sister.

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
Sweet dreams dear sister. We're going to bed early because my Mom is going to get up extra early and try to catch Sugar Bear for a trip to the vet. Yikes! You know I'll be hiding!

My Mom hasn’t heard back from the Alley Cat Allies lady, with information on Ebony, our new black cat furiend. Sugar Bear, the little momma cat has something on the bridge of her nose that looks kind of like a grayish colored scab. Sugar Bear is still eating great and running around like a kitten, but Mom doesn’t like the look of her nose, so Sugar Bear is going back to the vet in the morning. Hopefully it’s nothing serious.

Grass Etiquette =^.^=

Before you eat grass, make sure that you are close to a suitable place to throw up. Delicate furniture fabrics, precious carpets, and shoes are all good places. If you choose furniture: aim for the part that has non-removable fabric. When you are getting down to business, make sure you back up a step or two so that you cover the largest area possible. Another technique is to do several items with pauses in-between. Persian carpets will provide a good camouflage effect and your little gift will often not be discovered until somebody steps in it.

Good night and sweet dreams sweet sister. My Mom is feeling sad right now. Mom's sister-in-law Donna called tonight to tell us she had to help her doggie over the Rainbow Bridge today. His name was Blaze. He lived sixteen wonderful years with his family, a long time for a rescued Pit Bull. My Mom loved the big guy. He was a true "Gentle Giant" in every sense of the words. Blaze had bravely been battling cancer for a year now. He was a wonderful furiend.

Prevent Your Human From Wasting Valuable Time =^.^=

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

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

Well my sweet sister, it was busy day for my Mom today so I came by to say sweet dreams to you. My Mom met with Denise today, the lady from Alley Cat Allies, but we still don't know anything about Ebony yet. Very soon we hope. My Mom wanted to return the microchip scanner to Denise as soon as possible. Mom had fun reading all our microchip numbers. She was glad the chips were easy to read, so if we ever get lost (God forbid) at least we'll have a chance at being returned to our home.

I'm sending you soft purrs and lots of hug sweetie.

Wangling Extra Food =^.^=

All chances for a bit of extra food must and should be taken advantage of. Whenever your human is in the kitchen, you have a prime opportunity of getting an extra snack. When your human is busy at the kitchen counter place yourself in your humans blind angle (just behind the ankle is usually a good spot). And the second your human moves one or both feet you jump back screaming your most heart- wrenching cry. Your human will automatically assume that he/she stepped on you. When your human looks back scared to see what is happening look up at him/her with a painful expression on your face (practice this before hand in front of a mirror). Your human's bad conscience will often result an edible apology.

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
I had the best time watching our family put up the new greenhouse. I can hardly wait to see and taste the vegetables that grow in there. I wonder if we can ask our family to plant some catnip plants? We'll need to check with K.Pete and his Dad. Just think sis, we'll have the freshest vegetable soup ever!

My Mom is getting ready to try and pass the scanner over poor Ebony one more time. When my Mom gets fixated on something, she always has to get it done as soon as possible. MOL! My Mom practiced with the scanner on me and Whiskers again. Whitey and Orangie let her try it once on them, but now they're wise to her. The scanner worked on all of us, so that's good to know.

Shed Hair Freely =^.^=

Make it a priority to shed indoors on appropriate surfaces. Fleece is a particularly suitable material to shred on. All you need to do is pass close by your human when he or she is wearing fleece. All cat hair within a radius of two feet from the fabric will immediately be transferred to your human. No brushing necessary for several days!

Another good solution is to get access to a filled clothes hamper. Jump in and give all contents a good work over. An extra bonus with this method is that most cat hairs will survive a trip to the washing machine. Your human will be stylishly accessorized with cat hair on all outfits.

Entertaining your Human =^.^=

The litter box provides a great opportunity for entertaining your human. Naturally there is all the fun your human can have cleaning and scooping out the box. A lot of human time can also be used getting fresh litter - going to the pet store, transporting it home etc. However many humans like new challenges. Utilize your litter box time in the best possible way. Make interesting and artistic renderings of countries or well-known islands. Your human will have lots of fun guessing which one you made. Humans like game shows - so this should be a popular activity. When your human increases in skill, you can also make portraits of family and friends. Start with profile portraits - this will make it easer for your human.

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
Thanks for your very thoughtful and kind advice about the two new additions to our house. Mom still wants to learn more about Sugar Bear and Ebony from the shelter lady, but I have a feeling they'll be our new furever fursibs. I know my Mom worries about me the most, but Whitey is a concern too. Whitey is still trying to acclimate herself to our house. Orangie is doing fine. She is very timid. But Whitey is a tough cookie. Mom worries Ebony will present a challenge to Whitey. So far we have avoided any cat fights. I know my Mom gets a knot in her stomach just thinking about it.

Sugar Bear loves her Cosmic Catnip Banana cat toy and she tore the one Mom gave her in half! We've never done that! I think I remember Talley doing that once. I guess I know two really strong girls now! MOL!

See you tonight sweetie. I had to share something my Mom is reading right now.

For us cats there are several sweet advantages in having a human as a pet. However, remember you are taking on a big responsibility when you adopt one or more humans. Humans are demanding pets that need daily care and attention.
With responsibility come both advantages and disadvantages. If you adopt a human, you must get used to spending time at home. Your human does not deal well with being left alone - they will get into all sorts of mischief. For example, if you are gone just two or three days you run the risk of seeing posters put up all over the neighborhood. Your human will put out an APB on you! Often it will include an embarrassing text that reveals all sorts of personal details - and usually accompanied by an unflattering photo of you - with morning fur and crumpled whiskers. Exactly the kind of thing that attracts ridicule from all the neighbor cats.

So please consider carefully if you are ready for a life with humans. In addition, remember humans generally grow very old, so there is a big chance that you will spend the rest of your life with your human.

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
My Mom got an email from the Alley Cat Allies’ lady who had been helping her with Sugar Bear, the black momma cat. The nice lady said she would like to come out to meet both Sugar Bear and Ebony. She looked up the microchip number that was placed inside Sugar Bear and apparently Sugar Bear (who was a TNR cat), was returned to the wrong neighborhood. She is wondering about Ebony too. The Alley Cat Allies’ lady is perplexed and wants to see if Sugar Bear should be relabeled as adoptable. It’s all a bit confusing to our Mom, so Mom would love to speak to the lady and hopefully figure out what is going on.

My Mom is ready to take care of both cats and is in the process of getting some outdoor housing up for them. But if Sugar Bear has a chance to go to a loving home, then she wants whatever is best for the little cat. Ebony is not too friendly and seems older, so she is here to stay.

I think my Mom is worried how Whitey and I will react to another cat in the house. Whitey and I were just started to form a truce. MOL! But whatever happens, Mom knows the outdoor cat houses and the green house will be put to good use.

I better let Whiskers get back to his blogs. I hear him grumbling at me. Tee hee!

The outside cats are doing very well. Mom finally named the momma cat “Sugar Bear” and the big black cat that is her constant companion, “Ebony.” Both cats have been eating their food twice a day and Sugar Bear doesn’t look so skinny anymore. My Dad made a snide comment that Sugar Bear is starting to look like one of Mom's cats. Hey! I think he might have been insulting us. Humph! Doesn’t he know it’s World Cat Day?! MOL!

You lived your nine lives here with me

Then God took you up to Paradise

I’ll bet you’re peacefully lying

having a heavenly nap.

I'll miss you for a little while,
but our friendship will not end.
Time will pass, and then at last
you’ll be on my lap again.

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie!
Our two new outside cats are doing really well. Both cats were making good use of Whitey & Orangie’s Igloo in the front yard. Mom keeps it cozy with clean blankets and a bed inside, and the two cats were snuggled together inside this morning.
My Mom ordered the new outdoor cathouse that she found on the internet. It’s insulated, has a removable door flap to block out rain and wind, has an entry overhang with shingles that match the roof and even has a small escape door on the side with a flap that only works from the inside, so no animal can use it from the outside It should be here in a couple of weeks. Mom is hopeful the cats will use it, since they seem comfortable with the Igloo.

My Mom found out the reason for the microchip in the little momma cat, placed by the Feral Freedom Organization. Feral cats are trapped, neutered and released after being deemed under-socialized, with no major health issues. The microchip is registered to the San Jose Animal Control, signaling the cat has been returned to his or her colony where he or she was captured. Feral Freedom members should have left door hangers around the neighborhood, letting the people know what was happening. That sure would have helped my Mom. But now Mom knows how to recognize the TNR cats. Mom will continue to leave food out during the day like always. Mom has only seen the two black cats, so that is her main focus for now. Mom can’t believe the little momma cat was flagged as an unadoptable cat. The little momma is very loving and let’s Mom handle her. The other black cat is extremely skittish, not letting Mom get too close yet, but always the momma cat's constant companion. Mom is getting closer with the big black cat every day. Baby steps!

I left you a vote with purrs and hugs sweet sister of mine. See you tonight.

water sports day today!
it so good seeing you all here this morning. we've got quite the crowd and should be a nice day since the front came through earlier than it was forecasted to do today! sometime late last night we had a good light show and booming which meant that the angels were having their an-nual bowling tournament and we much prefer it at night to the daytime as you can't really see the good lightening show! janet was out in the heat of the day yesterday picking string beans, cukes, summer squash, and the first 3 cherry tomatoes of this year....finally as they are longer than usual in coming due to the wet cooler conditions and blight which has taken root and has destroyed a lot of plants not only coming in her garden but tons of others. she'll pick more on friday after she's in from work as she's got the run of a neighbor's small garden while they're away this week in maine, so will not pick anything after that to leave them something once they're back sometime late on sunday. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi sweet sister! My Mom is preparing to catch the momma cat tonight for her visit to the vet in the morning. My Mom is nervous, but is trying to remain calm and think pawsitive. Hopefully we’ll have good mews tomorrow. If the vet tells my Mom the cat is still nursing, Mom will bring her right back home. If not, Mom wants to get the little momma fixed. We're hoping the vet will be able to give us the right advice. I'm giving my Mom lots of purr-therapy right now. MOL!

The Cat (A Funny Story) =^.^=
~~~~~
A pastor had a kitten that climbed up a tree in his backyard and then was afraid to come down. The pastor coaxed, offered warm milk, etc. The kitty would not come down.

The tree was not sturdy enough to climb, so the pastor decided that if he tied a rope to his car and drove away so that the tree bent down, he could then reach up and get the kitten.

He did all this, checking his progress in the car frequently, then figured if he went just a little bit further, the tree would be bent sufficiently for him to reach the kitten. But as he moved a little further forward, the rope broke.

The tree went "boing!" and the kitten instantly sailed through the air - out of sight.

The pastor felt terrible.

He walked all over the neighborhood asking people if they'd seen a little kitten. No. Nobody had seen a stray kitten. So he prayed, "Lord, I just commit this kitten to your keeping," and went on about his business.

A few days later he was at the grocery store and met one of his church members. He happened to look into her shopping cart and was amazed to see cat food. Now this woman was a cat hater and everyone knew it, so he asked her, "Why are you buying cat food when you hate cats so much?"

She replied, "You won't believe this," and told him how her little girl had been begging her for a cat, but she kept refusing. Then a few days before, the child had begged again, so the Mom finally told her little girl, "Well if God gives you a cat, I'll let you keep it!"

She told the pastor, "I watched my child go out in the yard, get on her knees, and ask God for a cat. And really, Pastor, you won't believe this, but I saw it with my own eyes.

A kitten suddenly came flying out of the blue sky, with its paws outspread, and landed right in front of her."

I'm just pawing by to say good night and sweet dreams. My Mom just fed the little momma kitty and a couple of the regulars outside cats that she seems to be friendly with. My Mom is trying not to get nervous about trapping the momma cat tomorrow night, but she has a hard time staying calm when trying to catch a cat. I told her just to relax and breath, like I always tell Whiskers when he is nervous. MOL!

Creatures Of God
~~~~~
Animals bring to us a love not found in (the) humankind.
Theirs is a love of unspoken warmth,
companionship, and tenderness.
Theirs is an unconditional love, born out
of trust and loyalty.

All creatures in nature are created
from God’s love
And formed in His true delight.

Each has a special place in the
cycle of life.
Whether fur, feather, quill, scale,
skin, or hide,
Their existence is essential to the
balance and continuation
Of harmony in our universe.

The comfort we receive from earthly
creatures is soulful,
And at times heavenly.

The bond between animals and humans is one
not easily broken.
Even in death,
Beloved animals stir love, comfort, and
fond memories.

We learn so much from the simple lives
and love of animals
Let us always remember to hold them
firmly in our love,
As they hold us firmly in their trust.
