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

Hi Angel Lady Maggie! It's Callie! ♥
Our house smells like pies baking today as our Mom gets ready for Thanksgiving. Tomorrow our pawrents have Thanksgiving brunch in Santa Cruz with Dad’s brother and their family. I hope your pawrents have a wonderful holiday.

Mom bought a separate boneless turkey breast to bake for us cats, without all the spices. She’s cooking us potatoes and peas as a side dish. Whisker's tummy is growling already. Not sure what she has planned for our dessert. (Maybe mousey pie?!) Of course we have to share with Ebony and Sugar Bear since Mom will be cat sitting for them.

We are expecting temperatures in the high 60’s on Thanksgiving Day. We wish all our furiends had sun too, but we sure could use some rain!

I left a vote with purrs and lots of hugs for my dear sweet sister.

A THANKSGIVING FABLE
by Oliver Herford

It was a hungry pussy cat,
upon Thanksgiving morn,
And she watched a thankful little mouse,
that ate an ear of corn.
"If I ate that thankful little mouse,
how thankful he should be,
When he had made a meal himself,
to make a meal for me!
Then with his Thanks for having fed,
and thanks for feeding me.
With all his thankfulness inside,
how thankful I shall be!"
Thus mused the hungry pussy cat,
upon Thanksgiving Day.
But the little mouse had overheard
and declined (with thanks) to stay.

Hi Angel Lady Maggie! It's Callie! ♥
That was quite a dinner party we had last night sweetie. I can't thank you enough for making our homecoming such a memorable event. I simply loved the delicious French Onion Soup. We'll have to remember to make that the next time our furiend Neekah Boo comes over. I know she has a special liking for French cuisine.

We were shocked and deeply saddened to hear our furiends' Bella and Button's Dad passed away. We knew he was ill, but we had no idea it was so serious. It always so extremely sad when we loss one of our own. It makes one remember how fragile and fleeting our lives are. I know you and Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie will be there to welcome him to Heaven.

I guess we should start to work on the menu for hockey this Friday. I'm so glad to be back with you again sweet sister.

I left a vote with warm hugs and soft purrs.

A CAT'S PRAYER =^.^=
~~~~~
Thank you, God, for harvest-time,
For milk, for meat, for fish,
Thank you, God, for all the food,
I find upon my dish.

Thank you, God, for Autumn time,
When leaves come tumbling down,
Thank you for their pretty colours,
Red, and gold, and brown.

Thank you, God, for giving me,
A lovely coat of fur,
Thank you, God, that I can talk
By means of mew and purr.

Thank you for my happy home,
Where love and care abound;
Thank you for its warmth and comfort,
Always to be found.

Thank you, God, for all the gifts,
That life has given me;
Dear God, who made us all, I raise
My humble paws to Thee.

- by Fleur Puss

P.S. And thank you, God, for all my dear CC furiends!

Hi Angel Lady Maggie! It's Callie! ♥
We're sorry we missed the last part of the hockey game tonight. My Mom's computer froze on her and it took a little while to get it back up. Mom thinks it's the Safari Browser that is causing the problem. So she downloaded Google Chrome and so far so good. Everything seems to moving slow tonight for us on CC. We're hoping tomorrow is better.

Good night sweet sister of mine. Sweet dreams

you certainly are having fun already seeing we got an earlier start than the past 3-4 weeks seeing the time change this past weekend and we can sleep in another hour. janet continues to go to bed anywhere between 7:45-8:30 depending on the night as tues nights she stays up a little later unless she can't stay awake which was the usual for her last night as she couldn't keep her eyes opened and slept through till sandy started waking her up around 1;30 which used to be 2:30 closer to the time she was getting up on work mornings! now she can sleep in on wednesdays till 5:30 then gets dressed and out the door for a walk. last and this week she's done it right upon getting in from work seeing there were no errands like this morning to run. she got the upright yew pruned/cleaned up and the same with both fences all done too. now mommy asked her to prune/clean up the other jasmine bush as well as putting the cement pavers 21/2 of them in from th driveway to her car all before the snow flies as well as flowers pulled as they're still in full bloom with no frosts or freezes here yet. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi sweet sis! I'm not sure we'll make it to hockey this Friday, but we'll sure try. This menu made me hungry! My Mom got a lot of stuff done today planning her trip. Tomorrow she'll go to Petco and get all the food and goodies we'll need while she's in San Diego. I made my list and hope she sticks to it. MOL!

Sweet dreams tonight sweetie. Sending you soft purrs and warm hugs.

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
I just had to share this cat poem with you sweet sister. It reminded of us of so many CC pawrents, especially yours! It's a bit long, so read it at your leisure and enjoy!

Sending you soft purrs and warm hugs.

WHY OWN A CAT? =^.^=
~~~~~
There's a danger you know,
You can't own just one, for the craving will grow.
There's no doubt they're addictive, wherein lies the danger
While living with lots, you'll grow poorer and stranger

One cat is not trouble, and two are so funny,
The third one is easy, the fourth one's a honey,
The fifth is delightful, the sixth ones a breeze.
You find you can live with a house full, with ease.

So how 'bout another? Would you really dare?
They're really quite easy, but Oh Lord, the hair!
With cats on the sofa and cats on the bed,
And crates in the kitchen, its no bother, you said.

They're really no trouble, their manners are great.
What's just one more cat and one more little crate?
The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty.
The floor is all footprints, the furniture's dusty.

The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care?
Who minds a few nose prints and a little more hair?
So let's keep a kitten, you can always find room.
And a little more time for the dust cloth and broom.

There's hardly a limit to the cats you can add
the thought of a cutback, sure makes you feel sad.
Each one is special, so useful, so funny,
The food bill grows larger, you owe the vet money.

Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay,
Except other cat folks, who live the same way.
Your lawn has now died and your shrubs are dead, too.
Your weekends are busy, you're off with your crew.

There's cat food and vitamins, grooming and shots
And entries and travel and motels, which cost lots.
Is it worth it you wonder? Are you caught in a trap?
Then that favorite comes up and climbs in your lap.

His look says you're special and you know that you will
Keep all of the kittens in spite of the bill.
Some just for showing and some just to breed
And some just for loving, they all fill a need.

Late evening is awful, you scream and you shout
At the cats on the sofa, who refuse to get up.
The cats and the cat shows, the travel, the thrills
The work and the worry, the pressure, the bills.

The Whole thing seems worth it, the cats are your life.
They're charming and funny and offset the strife.
Your lifestyle has changed, things just won't be the same.
Yes, those cats are addictive and so is the cat game!

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
Well, we had quite a Halloween night! My Dad thinks we easily had at least a hundred kids trick or treating at our door. My Mom had to make a run to the store when they ran out of candy! That has never happened before. It was raining off and on, but that didn’t stop the kids from coming. Mom and Dad took turns sitting out on the doorstep to give out candy so the doorbell wouldn’t freak us all out. My pawrents called it quits at nine o’clock because it was late and chilly outside. (They both had their rain gear on!) The kids out trick or treating that late were bigger kids, so Mom didn’t feel bad when she ran out of candy for a second time. Dad was sad there wasn’t any leftover candy, but Mom saved a few pieces for him, much to his delight!

Now that Halloween is over, we can anticipate Thanksgiving! We like Thanksgiving much better. See you tonight sweet sister of mine

Sending soft purrs and warm hugs.

THE SINGING CAT =^.^=
~~~~~
It was a little captive cat
Upon a crowded train
His mistress takes him from his box
To ease his fretful pain.

She holds him tight upon her knee
The graceful animal
And all the people look at him
He is so beautiful.

But oh he pricks and oh he prods
And turns upon her knee
Then lifteth up his innocent voice
In plaintive melody.

He lifteth up his innocent voice
He lifteth up, he singeth
And to each human countenance
A smile of grace he bringeth.

He lifteth up his innocent paw
Upon her breast he clingeth
And everybody cries, Behold
The cat, the cat that singeth.

He lifteth up his innocent voice
He lifteth up, he singeth
And all the people warm themselves
In the love his beauty bringeth.

Good Night Sweet Angel Lady Maggie!
I hope your pawrents had fun seeing the big cats tonight! And I hope they took lots of great pictures!

Whoo hoo! VFP and KCK both won tonight! We took the Pawty Animals with us because their pawrents were out celebrating their Mom's birthday a day early. Her birthday is actually on Saturday. We all had a wonderful time. Our food was big hit too sweetie!

When my Mom took me and Whiskers for our stroller walk this morning, we saw Ebony and Sugar sitting in the bay window next door. We waved at them, but those silly cats were napping. My Mom was very happy and kind of sad from missing them too. We're all just happy they have a nice furever home.

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

ON A CAT, AGEING
~~~~~
He blinks upon the hearth-rug
And yawns in deep content,
Accepting all the comforts
That Providence has sent.

Louder he purrs, and louder,
In one glad hymn of praise
For all the night’s adventures,
For quiet restful days.

Life will go on forever,
With all that cat can wish,
Warmth and the glad procession
Of fish and milk and fish.

Only - the thought disturbs him -
He’s noticed once or twice,
The times are somehow breeding
A nimbler race of mice.

- by Alexander Gray

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
Hi sweet sister of mine! My Mom just got home from next door, installing two "Kitty Sills" in the window for Ebony and Sugar Bear. Abarna, their new Mom, asked my Mom if she would get them so the cats could sit in the sun in the upstairs window like we do. Mom was happy to oblige. The Kitty Sills can be installed with either velcro or by screws in the wall. My Mom prefers the later since it is much stronger. But she needed to drill a couple of holes in the window ledge. The neighbor said okay, that was fine, so Mom took her power drill over there and set the Kitty Sills up. Now let's hope Ebony and Sugar Bear use them.

I'll see you tonight sweetie. I just wanted to paw by to meow at you on your page. Sending you soft purrs and warm hugs.

I had a great time at hockey tonight. At least KCK won one of their games. I'm always so proud of Angel Lucy and angel Sylvie! Your family has such great hockey players. Here's the menu I was thinking of for Friday's games. I added Chyna's Gumbo in the Soup section. Let me know what you think sweetie. We can always add to it!

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
It sounds like the family has a busy weekend planned for us! I hope the girls won't be too tired for their hockey game on Sunday. I told Whiskers we can always plan a visit to Maggie Valley during the week, but you know how boys can be. I guess we'll see how everyone feels after the party on Saturday.

Since it's National Feral Cat Day today, I wanted to share this poem with you dear sister. I love you.

Sending you soft purrs and warm hugs, today and everyday!

Ferals =^.^=
~~~~~
We never know what the day may bring,
or what we have in store.
Each day is taken in our stride,
just like the one’s before.

Some of us have battle scars,
and wounds that cause us pain.
Mother nature is our nurse,
and soothes us back again.

We’re loath to trust, it keeps us safe
the past has taught us well.
Compassion’s shown by very few,
how many? We can’t tell.

The elements can be unkind,
both old and young may die.
Life is tough for feral cats,
for that we won’t deny.

Some us are trapped and caught,
no longer can we breed.
Others wind up at the pound,
for them a home they plead!

Our future’s never guaranteed,
the risks for us are great.
Poison, cars and unkind folk,
can often seal our fate.

However, we just soldier on,
we’re streetwise, shrewd and smart.
We’ll take our chance in the hostile world,
and hope it has a heart! ♥

- by Teresa Harrison-Best

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
We sure had good reason to do our happy dances today for your Mom! We are so relieved she is doing so well. We're all keeping her in our prayers sweetie.

Today my Mom had to go rescue our Dad in his broken car. When she came back, we were all sitting in the bay window watching for her. Even Whitey and Orangie! Mom was in a big, ole tow truck and the tow driver honked his loud horn at us! We were happy to see Mom even though she didn't have any treats for us. MOL!

Give your sweet Mom and Dad bigs hugs for us. Sending you soft purrs and hugs.

Signs You’re A Crazy Cat Purrson =^.^=

• Out Groomed-
Does your cat go to the “spa” and get the full treatment – groom, nails, polish – while you do a self-dye job at home? Or maybe your cat gets a new outfit each season while you are still rockin’ parachute pants. You are probably a crazy cat purrson.

• Cat-itecture-
Are your walls covered with cat “shelves?” Did you put holes through the walls between rooms to create walkways for your feline friends? You are probably a crazy cat purrson.

• Always Have Room for One More-
And finally, can you not turn away when you see a cat in need? No matter what were supposed to be doing, do you stop to pick up that stray cat? You ARE a Crazy Cat Purrson and we LOVE you for the good deeds you do!

I'm just pawing by sweet sister, to let you know we have your pawrents in our prayers. I know you and Angels Sylvie and Lucy had to be watching over both of them. Thank God for Guardian Angels! When you're sprinkling healing angel dust on them tonight, give them angel kitty kisses for me dear furiend.

Sending you soft purrs and hugs.

When you are sad,
I will dry your tears.
When you are scared,
I will comfort your fears.
When you are worried,
I will give you hope.
When you are confused,
I will help you cope.
And when you are lost,
and can't see the light.
I will be your beacon
shining ever so bright.
This is my oath.
I pledge to the end.
Why, you may ask?
Because you're my furiend.

Isn't it great to have our CatChannel back up and running?! I just noticed that Hockey starts tonight! We'll try to make it, but there's no telling with my Mom always fussing with my outside fursibs Ebony and Sugar Bear. But I'm sure going to try sweet sister of mine.

I was thinking you and I could make a delicious Amaretto Cheese Cake for after the game. I'm sure the family will be all wound up from the excitement. We can relax and serve it with some nice, warm tea.

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

Good night sweet sister of mine. I had to practically claw my way to the computer to push Whiskers aside so I could meow good night to you!

What do you think about us making our special breakfast for the family tomorrow, "Bird's In The Nest"? I bet the kids would like that. Okay sis, I better let my brother have the computer back so he can say good night to his sweetheart. Geez, you'd think they never see each other! I know, love is grand!

Sweet dreams Angel Maggie. I'll see you in the morning.

what a grand weekend we had here seeing it hit 80 friday, then mid 80s sat., and upper 80s yesterday and ending it with an 80 again today. it's froggy out like it was yesterday and didn't develop till janet had gotten up around 2;30 and took pepper out as it was just starting to set in at that time and now is thick and like pea soup as yesterday morning was as well. janet worked like usual and was hump day for her and today is her thursday and tomorrow her friday. no long walk wednesday morning as she's got to be at her dentist by 7:30 so that means an early walk around the big block with pepper possible and leaving by 7:10 or so as it's 7:30 she's got to be there and is praying she won't have to book another visit which usually happens. she did get a chance to sit out twice briefly fri/sat only for an hour or so, and yesterday topped her weekend seeing she sat out all afternoon finishing her book she started on friday and said it was one of the best books she's read in a very long time! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Good Night Sweet Angel Lady Maggie!
Sweet dreams by beloved sister. My Mom just finished putting Ebony and Sugar Bear to bed in the backyard. After they ate their food, both cats were sitting on top of the dog house while my Mom read to them, the story K. Pete and Talley wrote of Thomas' fantastic rescue. My Mom said Ebony and Sugar Bear were very quiet as if listening to hear. It was so sweet. Now we all get to hear it again before we go to sleep. K. Pete and Talley could write a sensational book if they wanted to!

Sending you soft purrs and warm hugs sweetie.

Hi Angel Lady Maggie, It's Callie ♥
Oh sweet sister, isn't it wonderful helping our new furiends Annabelle and her adorable kids? I was just reading Talley's blog to Whiskers and it made me so very happy. And I see the boys received their new boat kits already! Winter is going to be full of adventure this year. I hope we can find Annabelle's husband Thomas before it gets too cold, but even if we don't, we'll make sure our new furiends are well taken care of. If anyone can find Thomas, I know my brother, K. Pete and Mitch can.

My Mom went to Petco today and came home with all kinds of goodies for us and our outside fursibs. Mom bought some cat necessities Ebony and Sugar Bear will be needing in their new home too. Mom also ordered a couple of scratching posts over the internet, just like the ones we have. We love them. She's going to look at cat trees next. I hope she gets us some new stuff. Tee hee!

Good mews! We got rain this morning! Not just a light drizzle, but real raindrops were falling from 4 a.m. until 8 o’clock this morning. My Mom said she could see the trees in the yard come back to life! MOL! The yard looked very happy.

Okay sweetie, I'll see you tonight. I'll leave you with something to make you smile.:)

The Wisdom & Witticisms of being a Cat =^.^=
~~~~~
Cat Speak -

Humans will sometimes try to speak in cat language, attempting to 'meow' at you while having no real idea what they're saying! Cats can either meow back and try and fool the human into thinking that there is a real connection going on, or they can stare at the human with a puzzled look on their face...after all, the human just told you that your mother was the strumpet of every tomcat in town! (Pardon the language!) Did they mean to say that or did they simply not understand the implications of their attempting to meow? It's hard to say, as the level of human advancement in this area is very limited...about the only 'catspeak' they actually understand is "I'm starving" and "Let me out...NOW!" If they have truly insulted you or your family, feel free to either tell them how stupid they are in cat language or walk away indignantly.

The Eternal Question -

When faced with the age-old question, "Is it love, or is it Fancy Feast?", we all know that it is Fancy Feast, of course. However, it is absolutely crucial that cats not let the humans know this, or the humans might stop sharing this treat with us! Always convince the human that your sudden, intense attention showered on them is LOVE! You can go back to normal behavior after the treat has been consumed!

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. =^.^=

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. =^.^=

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.

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. =^.^=
