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!
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 !!

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!

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

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.

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.

I left you a vote with lots of purrs and hugs.

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.

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.

How to Care for Your Humans...
(Useful Advice for Cats - Part 1)

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!

Sending you purrs and hugs sweetie.

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
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!

I left you a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and a poem my Mom thought your Dad would like. See you tonight sweet sister.

Heavenly Nap
~~~~~
You lived your nine lives here with me
my loyal, loving friend,
Then God took you up to Paradise
to live life number ten.

I’ll bet you’re peacefully lying
upon an angel’s lap.
Purring there, without a care
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 Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
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!

Sending you soft purrs and hugs sweetie. I had to share this funny cat story with you.

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!

We have the Ice Cream Social at the Castle tomorrow sweetie. That should be fun!

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.

Sweet Dreams Angel Lady Maggie!
Callie and Angel Maggie come home from the Coronation with their family, heading to the kitchen to briefly plan out their plans for breakfast in the morning. Hedley, K. Neelix, Jakar and their significant others will be joining them for breakfast in the morning. Orangie asks her sisters if she can help, and the girls welcome her expert assistance.

Callie says, "It's a good thing we all just went grocery shopping yesterday. We'll have plenty of food for everyone. Let's call it a night and wake up bright and early." The girls hug, happily exhausted after a wonderful Coronation celebration.

The girls say good night to their family. On their way to their rooms, Callie tells Angel Maggie she received a text from her Mom, telling her the momma cat came to eat dinner, a little later than usual, but still no kittens. My Mom is going to catch the momma cat Sunday evening and take her to the vet first thing Monday morning. Angel Maggie mews she will be praying for the momma cat, her kittens and for Callie's Mom to be strong.

Sending you soft purrs and hugs sweet sister. Good night, sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite! Tee hee!

Good Night Sweet Angel Lady Maggie!
It's your sister Callie. We just finished watching our Mom from the front window, feeding the little momma cat and a couple of the neighbors cats. They all seem to be friendly with the little momma. At least they all ate without hissing and growling.

My Mom spoke to the vet again today and made a tentative appointment to take the little momma cat in for a check up at least. Mom wants to know if the cat is still nursing. We still haven't seen any kittens and are thinking the worst might have happened to them. If so, my Mom needs to get the momma cat spayed before it's too late. The vet says she can spay the momma cat, assuring my Mom the cat could still nurse after the spaying. We're hoping the kittens show up by Sunday. Either way, Mom will be able to bring the momma cat home after a day, and then a day of recuperating. We shall see.

I'm looking forward to the Coronation tomorrow . We'll have a wonderful time. Sending you soft purrs, hugs and something to make you smile...

I'm just pawing by to meow sweet dreams to you dear sister. My Mom just fed the little momma cat and even petted her a little bit. My Mom took one of our cat wipes and gave the little cat a quick bath. It was like a game to her. The cat would run away and then come running back for more, The cat wipes have aloe vera in them and always feel good on us.

Good night sweetie. See you in the morning.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
each little bird that sings,
he made their glowing colors,

The purple-headed mountain,
the river running by,
the sunset, and the morning
that brightens up the sky.

The cold wind in the winter,
the pleasant summer sun,
the ripe fruits in the garden,
he made them every one.

He gave us eyes to see them,
and lips that we might tell
how great is God Almighty,
who has made all things well.

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
We did have a wonderful weekend in Philadelphia, didn't we? We'll have to go back sometime and spend more time visiting the museums. There is so much to see there.

My Mom just finished feeding the little momma cat for the evening. Mom is really winning her trust. Mom wants so badly to pick her up and take her to our vet, just to make sure she is still lactating, but Mom is so worried she might spook the little cat. We'll wait a few more days, but my Mom can't see how tiny kittens can survive in this awful heat. We were in the 90's again today and that isn't going to change any time soon. (Sigh.)

Good night sweet sister of mine. You're always in my thoughts and prayers.

Sending you soft purrs and hugs.

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
It was another hot day here today. Mom took Whiskers and me for a walk in our cat stroller and this time we saw 5 deer on the trail! We filled the bucket with water as the deer watched us from far away, but they didn’t run off.

My Mom saw the little black momma cat that has been coming to eat at our house. The cat ate a whole bowl of food in the morning and came back in the afternoon to eat again, so Mom was happy. Mom tried to see where the cat goes after eating, but she is much too fast for my Mom to follow. At least we know the direction she is going, so Mom is still knocking on doors, asking the neighbors to be on the lookout for kittens and to please let us know.

I left a vote with soft purrs and hugs for you sweetie.

The Greatest Gift =^.^=
~~~~~
A battle scarred
Old alley cat,
So weary
And so thin,
His home a hole
In the ground
You found
And took him in.

You sheltered him,
You gave him food,
You healed
His running sore.
You gave him love,
You gave him care,
You gave him
Something more.

You gave him time
Spent just with you
Along
With tender care.
Afraid to trust,
He trusted you;
He knew
That help was there.

You took
A sick old alley cat
Left on
Life's discarded shelf,
And gave
The greatest gift of all.
You gave him
Of yourself.

A Happy Ending =^.^=
~~~~~
The greatest thing I've ever known,
Someone came and took me home,
Away from the track; hope I'll never go back!
Like a nightmare in my memory, my future looked black,
Then I was adopted and my life spared.
I thank God everyday that someone cared;
'Cause this must be heaven, I'm a winner this time,
Got some catnip, a toy, and a bed all mine.
And I'm crazy 'bout my family;
Devoted, you might say.
Like a shadow beside them.
You can bet I want to stay!
And I'm special too, they call me "sweetheart,"
And they hug and kiss me and tell me I'm smart.
Even dreams are peaceful now; no stress or strife.
And I run for fun, 'stead of running for my life!

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
We had a power outage in our neighborhood today. We’re still not sure if it was caused by the warm weather. If it was, this will be a long summer! My Mom has a back up battery for her computers, so our computers were fine when the power came back on. But Dad was watching TV when the power went out and it really messed up our Direct TV remote control. Mom had to sit down and figure out how to reset it. It was not a pretty sight to watch. MOL! Everything is back to normal. Whew!

It started out as a house cleaning day with the vacuum monster on the loose, but the power outage sure fixed that. MOL! I swear I didn’t have anything to do with it!

We also got a letter in the mail saying the "Water Police" will be visiting everyone in the coming few weeks because of the drought. Yes, it really did say the "Water Police!" My pawrents think we are doing okay with our water conservation. When we go on our morning walks, we see quite a few lawn sprinklers that are spraying water into the street. We hope those are the people the Water Police go after!

I'll see you tonight dear sister. I left you a vote with lots of love and hugs.

It was another hot and humid day here. We even got a few rain drops, but the ground soaked them right up. Whiskers was sitting outside on the deck when a couple of rain drops hit him on the head. He came running inside as fast as he could. Silly boy!

Whiskers and I got to go for a walk in our cat stroller, but our furiends the deer were nowhere to be seen. Mom filled up the empty bucket with water and we sat down for a while to wait, but still no deer. We hope they are all right and will try again tomorrow.

I'll see you tonight sweet sis. Sending you soft purrs and hugs.

We sure had a wonderful time at the Castle Ball this weekend. My Mom and Whiskers are trying to catch up on all his blogs today. Having company over was nice for my pawrents, but now they are running behind on everything. I know you and Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie are busy welcoming the newest angels to heaven, Angel Jesse and Angel Kieara. They are lucky to have you angels. I know their families are grieving deeply.

My Mom took Whiskers and me for a walk this morning in our cat stroller. We have only seen one of the deer the past couple of days and wonder what happen to the other one. We left some water in the bucket. It is always empty, so we know someone is drinking it.

It has been a noisy day of house cleaning and shopping for my Mom. She is getting ready to welcome her brother Larry and her sister-in-law Donna to our home tomorrow. We like our Aunt Donna because she is a cat lover, but Uncle Larry is a little too loud for us. Mom went out grocery shopping today to fill the kitchen up and she made a stop at Petco to get us lots of treats. I guess we can be bribed!

Cats are the world’s most dignified creatures, wouldn’t you agree?

We all rely on each other, and not asking for help can actually make you miss opportunities to learn and to form friendships. So work on that meow!

We saw our deer furiends this morning and filled up the water bucket that Mom set up for them. The water bucket was empty and the deer were nearby it, but there is no telling who drank it. We have our paws crossed it was them. This morning when the deer saw us, they ran off as always, but stopped where we could still see them, as they watched Mom.

We got to see our furiends, the deers on our cat stroller walk this morning. They seem to be getting used to us and not running off as quickly. My Mom noticed some water sprinklers going off around some nearby homes. We’re hoping the deer are getting their water from there. No rain in sight here. My Mom left a bucket of water next to the trail by the creek. We’re going to bring a couple of gallons of water each day to fill the bucket. Dad says it won’t help, but Mom doesn’t see how it could hurt. :(

Whiskers and I went for another walk this morning in our cat stroller and we saw the same two deer eating grass again! We were all excited as Mom stopped to take their picture with her phone. Mom pushed our stroller over a small bridge to get a better view and you guessed it - Mom dropped her phone into the dried up creek! MOL! Mom had to park our cat stroller and hike down about 30 feet to retrieve her phone. Fortunately the phone was in a case and just had a few scratches. Hee hee hee! Mom’s pants were covered with weeds and foxtails. We hope we didn’t scare the deer away because Mom is determined to get their picture for my CC page. Now Whiskers and I never want to be any where near that bridge! We could be next! YIKES! (Silly, silly Mom!)

I am so excited for our Castle Campout this weekend sweet sister. We're going to have a ball! See you soon.

• Take plenty of naps. =^.^=
Cats know that naps are good for you. You might have to go out hunting late at night or get up early to see the sunrise, so it’s a good idea to take a power nap now and then. Human researchers have found that people who take a 20 minute nap have improved creativity, better performance, are more alert and have better cognitive function. Your cat could have told you that!

My Mom just had the strangest thing happen with Whitey. I had to share with you. Whitey was laying beside Mom's feet while Mom was typing on the computer. Suddenly Whitey jumped up and arched her back, like ready to attack something, only nothing was there! Mom looked to see if she could see a bug crawling or anything out of the ordinary, but there was nothing there! Whitey kept her back arched and pawed her right paw, very tentatively in front of her. As if trying to touch something. Mom finally got up to see where the rest of us were, but we were all asleep in our cat beds. Mom thinks it must have been an angel visiting; maybe one of Mom's doggies. Whatever it was scared Whitey at first and then just made her curious. I slept through all the excitement! MOL!

The home she grew up in had a very big backyard with a nice flat lawn, perfect for the game. Her Dad would set the net up for the kids, with the regulation tape to mark the court, just like K.

Cats know how to live in the moment. If there is a ray of sunshine, a cat will stretch out in it, enjoying each warm sunbeam. If there’s a soft pile of laundry warm from the dryer, cats will lie down in it. If there are birds flying around outside, cats will enjoy their antics (or eat them, whatever!).
