About Me

Active within 1 Day

Hi! My name is Talley COTD 01/02/2009

I am Domestic Shorthair from Jacksonville, FL

Nicknames: My name is Tallulah, I'm called Talley, Talley Boo, Tally Ho & lots of sweet names

Age: 6 years old

Gender: F

Coat: short haired

Education: I can fetch when dad throws my puff balls for me.

My favorite tricks and treats are: I can run really fast, and I can bat a ball really well. Treats? Fancy Feast with greens is good and like I said I really, really like Pete's special Tuna Flakes, but I'm open to new possibilities.

Where I hang out: I'm still exloring but so far I like the computer room, mom & dad's laps and anyplace my big brother pete goes. ( I'll be able to get on counters soon)

My favorite grubs: I like Pete's special treat flakes, and and any big cat food. Dad lets me have little meat treats from his plate, and I really like that.

My pet peeves: Loud noises, closed doors and when any other kitty plays with my treat ball

What I love about my owners: I've learned from the other cats, my big sisters and especially my big brother, Pete that we don't have owners, What we have is a caring and loving family. Mom & dad treat us with the same love and respect that they give their human children. I do like it a lot when dad kisses my tummy. I believe I'm a pretty lucky little kitty.

My cat hobbies: I like to play ball, play with Pete (my big brother), wrestle with my stuffed toy kittens and be loved and petted.

Pet motto: Little miracles happen everyday, you just have to open your heart and let them come.

How We Met

When I was about seven weeks old I got very sick, my eyes got infected and I couldn't see because pus had dried on the outside of them and I couldn't even open them. Then, some how I got lost from my kitty mom & my littermates. I just kind of wandered blind for I don't know how long. I was so very hungry and thirsty. Then, even though I couldn't see, something calming seemed to come over me, a quiet sweet kitty voice, guiding me to an empty house. I finally got there and managed to climb up on the brick steps. Something told me to stay, and I was too thirsty and hungry and tired to go on anyway. It was so hot. After awhile I heard someone say "Oh my goodness, look at this" another voice asked, "Is it alive?" "Yes", said the first voice, "but not for long if we don't get help." Someone (it turned out to be our dad) picked me up, we went in a truck to a cool place with more people, and then I got medicine, (ick!) & food and water with electrolytes. (yum!)and then a shot. My eyes were bathed in something cool and then I could see again. I think I would have been really scared, but I'm pretty sure a very sweet cat named Sylvie led me to that place and she somehow led dad to make an unsceduled visit to that house to take some measurements he'd misplaced. I truly beleive that a miracle happened, and my life changed in an instant. I love my home

Whiskers and Talley were both up early
to get ready for the trip back to the Castle. Whiskers and K. Pete had the honor of piloting Queen Angel Wendy and her entourage back to the Castle. Whiskers had ordered room service the evening before. There was a light knock on their hotel room door, just as Whiskers finished getting dressed. Whiskers thought, “Perfect timing! Just like our entire hotel stay has been.” Whiskers let the waiter in, helping him set up table, while Talley was still in the bathroom getting dressed. Whiskers tipped the waiter generously, thanking him for the hotel’s wonderful service. The waiter smiled and said Whiskers and his Royal family were a pleasure to serve and he hoped they would return soon to their fair city.
Whiskers filled their cups with a delicious smelling Columbian blend coffee as Talley came to join him. Talley always looked beautiful in the morning, but she never failed to take Whisker’s breath away. Her lustrous fur was shining after being blow-dried and she had a lovely twinkle in her green eyes. Whiskers took her paw, kissing it as he pulled out a chair for her to sit. Talley smiled and said, “What did you order us sweetheart? We don’t have too much time before we meet our family in the lobby.” Whiskers smiled as he took the covers off the plates and said, “I kept it simple - Lox & Bagel with Philadelphia cream cheese, some scrambled eggs, bacon and some sliced strawberries.”
Talley smiled and said, “It looks great sweetie. I hope our family gets something to eat too.” Whiskers nodded and said, “I also took the liberty of ordering room service for everyone, to be delivered to their rooms right about now.” Talley looked at her phone, seeing she had a couple messages this morning. She laughed and said, “Pete and our sisters left a message, thanking us for breakfast. We should all be finished and ready at the same time. Pete said we’d meet in the lobby in about an hour.”

After enjoying a quiet breakfast together, Whiskers helped Talley zip her bag up and they both looked around the room to make sure they didn’t forget anything. Whiskers took Talley in his arms, thanking her for another wonderful vacation. Whiskers heard a light tap on the door, opening it to find Flower, Tabitha, Liliana and Daisy standing there. The kids smiled and said a happy good morning to their Aunt and Uncle. Pearl and Mitch weren’t far behind them in the hallway. It seemed as if all at once, the family came out of their rooms.

K. Pete smiled and said, “We all seem to be on the same wavelength today. I have a porter on his way up to grab our luggage, so leave everything by your doors. Angel Maggie and Callie want to take the kids to the hotel gift shop one more time for some last minute souvenirs. The limousines should be waiting to take us to the airport. Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie said they would make sure the limousine for the Queen and her family would arrive to take them to the airport soon after us. Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie have been at the airfield all morning, helping all the other pilots ready their aircraft. Knowing my sisters, we’ll just need to get our pre-flighting done and then we’ll be ready to fly.”

Downstairs in the lobby, Angel Lady Maggie and Callie took the kids into the gift shop. Flower and his sisters wanted to get a few more postcards of the grand Ritz-Carlton Hotel so they could show all their furiends where they stayed. Flower wanted to mail the cards right from the hotel so his furiends would see the postmark from Philadelphia. Flower and the kittens were world travelers now and they were very proud. They also wanted to get some souvenirs for their furiends Jesse and the Hockeytown Kitties, since they had to leave early to take care of Jesse

While the family waited for their luggage to arrive, they sat in the lobby which was still very quiet in the early morning hour. The pianist in the main lobby had just started to play, adding a nice touch of atmosphere as it echoed in the empty rooms that would soon be bustling with activity.

Angel Maggie, Callie and the kids finished their shopping, just as the luggage arrived. The bellhops took their bags to the waiting limousines. K. Pete and Whiskers took head counts as their family got into the vehicles that would take them to the airfield.
Whiskers spied a lady setting up her flower cart outside the hotel. He ran over to buy some wrist corsages for all the girls. The lady smiled, seeing he was in a hurry. She picked out a colorful array for him, wrapping them quickly but beautifully and thanking him for his nice tip. Now they were ready to leave. Another busy day was underway. Whiskers said a silent prayer, thanking God for looking after his family and blessing them with the gift of another day together.

Sending you soft kisses and hugs, my precious Talley. ♥

Whiskers woke up with Talley snuggled
tightly in his arms. The bed at the Ritz-Carlton was very comfy. It reminded him of when he and Talley were on their honeymoon in Venice. Whiskers kissed his beloved good morning and said, “It’s too bad the Phillies lost their game last night, but I sure had a great time at our first major league baseball game.” Talley smiled and said, “I know you and Flower were enjoying the ballpark fare. I hope Flower didn’t get a tummy ache from all the concession food you boys ate.” Whiskers blushed and said, “I know my waistline will need some work after this weekend, but those Philly Fries topped with chopped steak, caramelized onions and cheese sauce where fantastic!” Talley laughed and said, “I have to admit, I enjoyed the tasty hand-dipped ice cream bars with kitty safe chocolate.”

Whiskers said, “We better get dressed for another busy day of sightseeing. We’ll be visiting the National Liberty Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I can hardly wait.”

The breakfast dining room at the Ritz Carlton was humming with activity. K. Pete and the family waved Whiskers and Talley over to the table they had reserved. The family had already ordered their food and took the liberty of ordering for Whiskers and Talley. The menu sounded delicious. Every dish was attractively presented. They shared orders of Eggs Benedict with potato pancakes and something called “Croque Madame,” a French favorite of grilled ham, gruyere, dijon mustard, creamy béchamel sauce, fried egg on toasted country white bread with a potato pancake. They all enjoyed a delicious meal together, ready to begin their day of sightseeing.

Whiskers, Talley, K. Pete and all the family stopped to say hello to Q. Lily, Rennie Boots. the Pawty Animals and Zippy and Mojo BB. Whiskers meows, “We’ll see you kitties at the National Liberty Museum!”

Another wonderful day, courtesy of their beautiful Queen Angel Wendy was under way.

Raven and Ms. Murphy had their tablets out with the itinerary for the day. Their first stop would be to the National Liberty Museum that was filled with imaginative interactive exhibits. Raven noted the museum was adjacent to the Independence National Historical Park, which they could visit and take a break at, after their tour.

The family followed Raven and Ms. Murphy, as the girls led them up the stairs to the NLM to begin the tour.

The top floor covered religious freedom and our military's fight for freedom. There was an amazing painting, depicting every US president, from George Washington to Barack Obama. Flower was busy sketching furiously in his notepad. The kittens were also taking notes of everything they saw. Next, they walked up a stairway, which covered the terrorist attack on 9/11 and the heroes who risked their lives to rescue others. The family bowed their heads in silent prayer.
The third level covered the courage of those who hid Jews during the Nazi invasion. A meaningful exhibit displayed one of the families who hid four Jews beneath the floorboards of a bedroom for 17 months when the Nazis attacked.
One of the most emotional parts of the visit was the Nelson Mandela exhibit. The exhibit is an open cell with Mr. Mandela sitting on the edge of his cot. Visitors can write a message to Mr. Mandela on a sticky note and post it anywhere inside his cell. Sigh.... What a moment. We all left a note, with most of us in tears by this time.

After leaving NLM, the family decided to have some refreshments in the park, before starting their tour of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. King Pete and Whiskers thought it might be a good idea to look for the Chestnut Grill, where Queen Angel Wendy had planned to meet for lunch. Raven and Ms. Murphy pulled up the address on their tablets, as Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie led the way.

K. Pete told the family, “The Philadelphia Museum of Art is huge, so it’s a good idea for us to eat before the tour.” Raven nodded saying the vast collections in the temple of art make it the third largest art museum in the country.

Whiskers took Talley’s delicate paw in his, as Flower and the kittens tried to keep up with Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie. It was glorious day in Philadelphia and Whiskers was on top of the world, enjoying the sights with his beautiful wife and his loving family. Life doesn’t get any better.

Sending soft kisses and lots of hugs to my Talley, my love.

♥ It's magic each time we hold each other, each time we cuddle, and each time we kiss. I feel goosebumps all over again. I never want to let you go for fear of losing you, so I just hold on a little bit tighter each day, refusing to let go. You will never know the warmth I feel inside me when I'm with you. You're all I ever wanted.

Good Night Talley, My Precious Love! ♥
I'm having a wonderful time in Philadelphia with you and your family sweetheart. My Dad was so jealous when I told him a bunch of us kitties dined on Philly Cheesesteaks! I love the Ritz Carlton Hotel and the delicious food at the 10 Arts Bistro. I think Callie and Angel Maggie are going to come back with a lot of great recipes from our trip.
You had me laughing so hard with Angel Mallow's reaction to seeing the crack in the Liberty Bell! She reminded me of how K. Spongie is always blaming the "Not Me Monster!" Hee hee hee!

We'll sleep good tonight sweetheart. Thank you for always being here for me my love.

Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs, Talley my beautiful wife.

P.S. My Mom told me she got to pet the little momma cat tonight while she was eating. My Mom feels confident she'll be able to handle the little cat easily. Now we just have to find the kittens!

Today was the big day for the Feline Empire’s
trip to Philadelphia. K. Pete and the Royal Feline Squadron had spent the previous day going over all their schedules and assignments. Talley woke up to find Whiskers standing in the middle of their bedroom holding his new walking cane with a big smile on his face. Whiskers said, “I can’t get over how beautiful my walking cane is and how dashing it makes me feel when I hold it. Watch this honey.” Talley had to stifle a laugh when Whiskers danced across the hardwood floor, doing a two-step and singing...

♬ If you're blue and you don't know
Where to go to, why don't you go
Where fashion sits?
Puttin' on the Ritz! ♬

Whiskers said, “I’m going to bring my cane with me when we go to the Ritz-Carlton tonight. I’ll be Fred Astaire on the dance floor and you’ll be my Ginger Rogers.” Whiskers held out his paw to his lovely wife, whisking her out of bed effortlessly and twirling her in his arms. Talley was giggling as she said, “Okay my silly Mr. Twinkle-toes, we better get ready for our busy day. We still need to finish packing what we’ll be wearing this weekend. I have our formal wear for the Ritz-Carlton packed. Pete said the weather for the baseball game on Sunday will probably be warm and humid, so we’ll need to pack something light and comfortable.” Whiskers nodded, still holding his cane and smiling. He said, “I can’t forget to pack my cane. I can’t wait to show it off to all my furiends. I’ll pack your cane too. You can use it Saturday while we’re sightseeing.” Talley was happy to see her husband so excited. She gave him a kiss as they danced over to the shower together.

Downstairs was full of activity and excitement. Whiskers greeted Flower and kittens with big hugs, thanking them once again for the incredible gift they had crafted for him. Whiskers told them he could feel the love emanating from the cane when he held it. Flower and his sisters were beaming with pride.

Callie came out from the kitchen to pour coffee for everyone, hot cocoa for the kids as she spoke hurriedly; “Angel Maggie and I are fixing scrambled eggs, bacon and wheat toast this morning. We all need to finish packing and get down to the airfield. Angel Maggie and I still need to stock the galleys on the planes, so we need to hurry, but we don’t want to start the day on empty tummies.

The family joined paws and said grace. Flower added a prayer for their furiends in need and a special prayer for all the Royal Pilots to have a safe trip.

Raven and Ms. Murphy had arranged for their family, Neekah Boo & Fatty and Bart and Smudge’s family to be on the same floor at the Ritz-Carlton. Whitey and Orangie would go with Pearl and the kittens to the hotel, to check in and make sure the rooms were prepared for their family’s arrival. Flower would be with K. Pete and Whiskers. The little skunk had his pilot’s cap on and his flight bag already packed, ready to help out his Uncles wherever he might be needed.

Everyone was too excited to eat, picking lightly at their food at Callie’s insistence. Angel Maggie told Callie, “We’ll make sure all the galleys are stocked with nice snacks and refreshments. At least we know we have a wonderful dinner at the Ritz to look forward to.” Callie hugged her sister, knowing they would all be exhausted by the end of today, but what fun they would all have.

Whiskers and Talley helped with the kitchen, then everyone was off to their rooms to grab their bags so Whiskers, Mitch and K. Pete could load the vehicles. Whiskers helped Talley zip up her suitcase. He took her in his arms, breathing in her lovely scent. Whiskers mewed, “Just think, tonight we’ll be dancing together in Philadelphia at the Ritz-Carlton. That thought is going to keep me on my paws today. I love you sweetheart.” The two kitties in love shared a deep kiss. Whiskers pick up their bags and they walked downstairs ready for their weekend in Philly to begin.

Sending you soft kisses and hugs, my precious Talley.

My heart leaps in your presence
Awaken by your glow
Dormant, patiently waiting
My joy hidden and reserved
For your love that makes me whole

You are no less than a queen
Royalty exemplified in your every step
Commanding my full attention
You secretly secure my heart

Your smile is my reward
Holding you furever is my aspiration
Squeeze me while I make love to your soul
Hold my paw as we journey till old.

Whiskers and Talley woke up at the same
time today, laying in each other’s arms basking in their love. Whiskers said to Talley, “I receive a message from Mom this morning. She went with my Dad to his appointment to see the orthopedic surgeon who worked on his ankle. Can you believe it has been a whole year since my Dad broke his ankle? I know Mom and Dad think about that fateful day every time they walk down the stairs. They now are both very careful and mindful of hanging on to the staircase railings. Not like us cats who run up and down the stairs with ease. My Mom is always telling us to be careful, but we just laugh at her! Dad’s doctor took x-rays of his ankle and then sat down to talk with them. Dad has decided not to have any more surgery. Dad is happy he can walk without a limp and the one pin that does bother him, doesn’t cause enough discomfort to warrant more surgery. Dad has been doing his physical therapy exercises religiously and that seems to be key in his recovery. The doctor said walking a few miles everyday needs to be a part of his exercise routine. My Mom asked if they could still do some hiking (because there are a lot of nice hiking trails nearby our home), but the doctor didn’t recommend anything too strenuous or with steep terrain. That made my Mom a little sad, but the doctor said Dad could work up to that again slowly. My Mom has accumulated quite a few nice pieces of wood from their previous hikes that she can use to make them hiking sticks.” Whiskers laughed and said, “My Mom always carries a stick, even when she is pushing us in our cat stroller. She has had to use it several times to ward off unwanted advances from stray dogs. She’s never actually hit an animal, but it’s works just fine waving around in the air. MOL!”

Talley smiled and said, “Maybe we can go on a short hike today by the lake and see if we can find some nice pieces of wood. I’m sure Flower will be happy to help you make a hiking stick for your Dad. I saw some maple that might be nice to use. Plus, it’ll be great exercise carrying back the wood.” Whiskers laughed and kissed his beautiful wife. He said, “Thank you sweetheart. I’ll pack a small folding saw in my backpack when we go out in case we see a potential walking stick that’s too big to carry.” Talley said, “I know my brother Pete and my sisters are busy planning for the Queen’s upcoming festivities in Philadelphia, so let’s help them out first and we should have plenty of time later for our walk. “ Whiskers nodded, picking up his lovely wife and carrying her into the shower as she threw back her pretty head laughing.

Whitey and Orangie had helped the kittens fix another new recipe from their recipe database called Sweet Potato Sausage Bake. The recipe promised to be a wonderful meal for anyone who loves sweet potatoes and sausage. The kittens agreed that would include the entire family. They carefully arranged layers of sliced tart apples and sweet potatoes in a casserole dish, combined with a mixture of apple juice, butter and light maple syrup. Tabitha had browned and drained the pork sausage, crumbling with dry breadcrumbs and sprinkling on top of the casserole. While it baked in the oven filling the kitchen with delicious aromas, the girls cut up fresh strawberries and honeydew melon to serve on the side.

After saying grace and a prayer for their furiends, the conversation at the table was mainly of the trip to Philadelphia. K. Pete, Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie would go over all the necessary arrangements with the family. K. Pete would have a debriefing with all the Royal Pilots later that evening. Callie and Angel Maggie volunteered to fix something nice and simple to serve their furiends after the meeting. The girls thought a pasta salad and some sandwiches would be tasty.

All the kitties were ready for their day to begin. Whiskers and Talley cleared the table and insisted on cleaning the kitchen. Talley and Whiskers could hardly wait to hear about the preparations for the Philadelphia trip.

Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs my beautiful Talley.

Whiskers woke up this morning to see his
Talley smiling at him with a twinkle in her eye. Whiskers smiled and said, “Tell me what you’re thinking sweetheart. From the beautiful look on your face, I know it has to be wonderful.” Talley giggled and said, “I can’t tell you my love. It’s a surprise; but I will tell you it’s a surprise gift from Flower and the kittens.” Whiskers sat up in bed excitedly and said, “Oh Talley, I didn’t forget my birthday or our anniversary, did I?” Whiskers shook his head before Talley could answer and mewed to himself, “No, no, I know I haven’t forgotten anything as important as our anniversary. Let me think...hmmm.” Talley laughed and gave her funny husband a big hug. She said, “Oh Whiskers! Since when does it have to be a special occasion for someone to give you a gift?” Whiskers had a sheepish grin on his face and said, “One thing I’ve learned since becoming a part of your family, is that every day is a special occasion. But I still get so excited when I receive a gift. I’ll try my best to act nonchalant around the kids and contain my excitement.” Talley couldn’t help but smile at Whiskers as she said, “Oh Whiskers! You have the worst poker face ever and I love you!”

Whiskers wrapped Talley in his arms tighter as the lay in bed. Whiskers said, “I was so happy to see our dear furiend Becky eating a little bit of the chicken soup we brought for her yesterday. It’s always wonderful when our prayers are answered. I think our visit was the best medicine for sweet Becky. Did you see how her whole mood brightened when she opened her gifts? The quilt Ms. Murphy and Raven gave to her was beautiful. Chloe does such exquisite work. And the Kindle Fire HDX given to her from K. Pete will come in very handy while she is laid up in bed. It reminded me of when K. Pete took the Kindle Fires to Neekah Boo and Fatty when Neekah Boo was under the weather. The girls were so excited, they almost forgot about Neekah Boo’s pain.” Talley smiled and said, “The origami get well cards from the kids were beautiful too. What did you think of the walking stick Flower made for her?” Whiskers shook his head and said, “It was unbelievable! Flower’s talents never cease to amaze me. I knew Flower had wanted to recreate the fine craftsmanship of Angel K. Malachi’s walking cane, but I had no idea he had already been at work on it. Maybe I can spend some time with him in the workshop so he can show me how it’s done. I’d like to make us a couple of walking sticks to take on our hikes.” Talley nodded and said that sounded like a fine idea.
The two kitties in love got up feeling happy and hopeful for a wonderful day ahead.

Pearl was in the kitchen with Tabitha, Liliana and Daisy preparing Belgian Buttermilk Waffles with a glazed banana topping. The house was filled with delicious aromas when Whiskers and Talley came to the table. Whitey brought some café lattes to the table and some hot chocolate topped with whipped cream and a cherry for the kids.
Pearl was merely supervising as her girls skillfully used the hot waffle iron, cooking the waffles to a golden brown and transferring them as they cooked, to a rack in the oven to keep warm. The kittens had perfected the art of teamwork. When the last batch was cooked, the kittens quickly made their way over to the stove, pulling their step stools with them. In a heavy skillet with hot butter, they added the banana slices, cooking quickly until golden. Pearl helped her kids place the bananas in small decorative saucers along with individual pots of warm maple syrup. Lastly, Daisy ran to the refrigerator to grab the whipped cream. Breakfast was ready to be served.

The family applauded the wonderful breakfast presentation when Pearl and the kittens set the food on the table. Whiskers and Flower looked at each other, smiling and licking their lips. The family joined paws and said grace, giving thanks for another wonderful start to the day together. Flower added an extra prayer for Neekah Boo, Becky, Angel Jesse, Angel Kieara, Angel Bait and all their furiends and families in need of prayers.

The smell from the delicious meal made everyone famished. The mood at the table was one of happiness and hope. The kitties were so glad that their furiend Becky was on the road to recovery. K. Pete was talking about the Queen’s upcoming trip to Philadelphia. Him and the girls were already busy arranging the flight schedules, which would commence Friday morning. So most of the family would be spending the day at the airfield.
Whiskers took the last bite of his delicious waffle, wiping his plate clean before saying, “Flower, if we have time later this afternoon, I’d like to go to the workshop with you so you can show me how you made that splendid walking cane for Becky. The craftsmanship was amazingly beautiful and I’d like to try my paw at one for me and Talley.” Flower’s face was big smile as he said, “I’d love that Uncle Whiskers.” Talley looked at Flower and the two winked at each other. Flower loved surprises as much as his Uncle Whiskers did.
Whiskers and Talley were only too happy to clean the kitchen table after a wonderful meal. The two kitties in love were ready to start a new day.

Sending you soft kisses and hugs, my beloved Talley.

Talley slipped out of bed quietly, putting on
her robe and opening the drapes to their bedroom to let the sunshine in. Whiskers opened his eyes and smiled when he saw his beautiful wife. He said, “I always know it’s going to be a wonderful day when the first thing I see in the morning is you my love.” Talley came to sit by the bed, running her paw through her beloved husband’s fur. She said, “I guess we were tired from our long day yesterday. We seem to have slept in later than usual.” Whiskers kissed her paw and said, “I think I got quite a workout on the new elliptical exercise machine that K. Pete bought. I love it! I used some muscles that I wasn’t using before. “ Talley said, “It is a nice addition to our workout room. Since we don’t have anything special planned for today, we can spend some more time in their today.”

Whiskers put on his robe, pulling Talley into his arms before their shower. He said, “That was an amazing story you told me yesterday about your Dad flying the plane that was carrying a live heart to save someone’s life. I wonder if your Dad ever heard back about how it all turned out? What an incredible flight that must have been for your Dad.” Talley nodded and said, “My Dad has led an extraordinary life. All of us kitties know we are very lucky to be a part it.” Whiskers said, “I know I thank God every day that he found you and in a roundabout way, brought you to me.” Whiskers took Talley’s delicate paw in his, leading her to the shower.

Liliana, Tabitha and Daisy had their chef’s hats on, ready to try out a new recipe called Spicy Sausage, Egg and Cheese Paninis. The kittens loved any chance to use the Panini press for crispy grilled sandwiches. This would be their first time using the press for breakfast. Daisy was busy at the kitchen counter, slicing the andouille sausage links into thin slices, while Tabitha stood at the stove, transferring the sausage into a skillet for browning. Liliana was whisking the eggs in a large bowl with milk and several spicy seasonings.
Whitey and Orangie were busy making some broad, flat loaves of Ciabatta bread for the paninis. The very wet dough required quite a bit of machine-kneading, so the girls got a head start in preparing it early. Once baked and cooled, the girls sliced the bread horizontally, ready for the kittens.
Liliana poured the egg mixture into a large skillet with melted butter, letting the eggs firm up around the edges until firm enough to flip and continued cooking until set, removing it from the heat. Working together now, the kittens divided the eggs between the bottom halves of the Ciabatta bread. They topped the egg with the thinly sliced cooked sausage and then placed a slice of mozzarella cheese on top, finishing with the bread tops.

The sandwiches were now ready to grill in the Panini press. Pearl looked on, watching her girls with pride. Whitey and Orangie were cutting up some fruit for Callie’s Power Smoothies to round off the breakfast.
Callie and Angel Maggie had made a trip to the Vitamin Shoppe, picking up the Super Seed Fiber, Green formula with sprouts and grasses and the Raw Vegan Protein powder with amino acids; all necessary ingredients in Callie’s special shakes.

Whiskers and Talley heard the blender going at full speed, as they sat sipping their coffee. Whiskers laughed and said, “I guess it’s time for our power shakes this morning. Callie must know we are all still a little bit tired from our busy day in the air yesterday.” K. Pete smiled and said, “The Royal Feline Squadron had a very productive and successful day yesterday. The weather was on our side and all the kitties were returned to their homes safely and on time.” Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy said they would be spending the day at the airfield doing maintenance and routine inspections on the aircraft.

Raven and Ms. Murphy had been reading their messages on their tablets. Raven looked up and said, “I’ve just got a most distressing message from Angel Tinker. It seems that our furiend Becky isn’t doing well. I think we should all go to visit her and her family to see if there is anything we can do.” Callie and Angel Maggie overheard what was said. The girls said they would make a pot of chicken soup to take to their furiend.
The family joined paws to say grace and an extra healing prayer for Becky and her family. Breakfast was served and it was delicious, but the mood at the table had turned somber. Afterwards, every kitty helped clear the table, giving praise to the creative little chefs. K. Pete was going to put in a call to Neekha Boo to see how she was doing. The family asked him to send their love to her. Whiskers and Talley went back to their room to change their clothes for visiting Becky and her family. Whiskers took Talley in his arms. Talley buried her face in her husband’s shoulder, trying not to cry. It broke Whisker’s heart to see his Talley so sad. He held her tightly and mewed, “We have to be strong sweetheart. Our furiends need our love and support right now. I’m here for you my love. Always and furvever.”

Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs, my precious wife.

No Words
~~~~~
There are no words to describe how beautiful she is,
or how special she is,
or my love for her.
To put these things into words would be to define them,
To quantify them, which means to limit them.
There would be a beginning and an end.
There is no definition fitting, nor any limit,
nor beginning or end to her beauty,
or to how special she is, or my love for her.

Whiskers and Talley were still reeling
over the fabulous Royal Ball and how excited they were to receive the Royal Flying Awards from their gracious Queen. Whiskers said to Talley, “Did you see the happy faces on Neekah Boo and Fatty when the Queen appointed them as the official Royal Photographers? And our very own little Flower, being appointed as the official Royal Artist of the Feline Castle! I was bursting with pride for them and my family. It was quite an evening indeed.” Talley smiled and said, “We should get ready for our busy day my love. I think I hear the voices of Mitch and Hot Rod downstairs already. We have to get the kitties back to their homes today.” Whiskers nodded, jumping up and taking his beautiful wife into his arms for a deep kiss - to start the day off right.
Whiskers and Talley were up and ready in no time at all. Whiskers kissed Talley as she brushed her beautiful fur. Her beauty always took his breath away.

Downstairs the breakfast table was set and some of the kitties were having their morning coffee together. Callie was pouring another cup of coffee for Mitch and Hot Rod just as Pearl brought some fresh apple cinnamon muffins to the table. The wonderful aromas filled the air.
Angel Maggie, Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie were sitting at the table having just returned from their trip to the Rainbow Bridge to be with Angel Jesse. Neekah Boo and Fatty came to the table at the same time as Whiskers and Talley. They all sat down, eager to hear from the Angels how their dear furiend Angel Jesse was doing. Angel Sylvie told the family Angel Jesse was feeling homesick, which is understandable. Angel Sylvie said, “Jesse came from a very loving home, so it’s only natural that he should miss his family so much and they him. But he was relieved to feel so young and strong again, just like a kitten. Plus, he was welcomed by so many family and furiends; it was almost like a wonderful reunion. It was only when Angel Jesse thought about the family he left behind, that he became sad. But we were all there to help him through his grief. We all know it just takes some time. The pain will eventually lessen and hopefully only happy memories will remain.” The family nodded in solemn agreement, giving the angels big hugs.

Whitey and Orangie had baked a large Spinach Bacon and Cheddar Frittata with a platter of extra crispy bacon on the side. The kitties joined paws to say grace and an extra prayer for Angel Jesse and his family, and of course a special prayer for Neekah Boo’s continued good health and her family too.

Today would be spent getting their furiends and their families back home. Angel Lucy Fur and Angel Sylvie said they would first take Neekah Boo and Fatty back to their home on the magic carpet. Flower insisted on going with them to escort his furiends back home. When they returned, they would all go to the airfield together. It was still early so the family felt they had plenty of time.

Breakfast was delicious and the kitties had full tummies, ready to start their busy day. They all thanked the chefs, everyone helping to clear the table. K. Pete helped Neekah Boo and Fatty bring their small bags downstairs, helping them onto the magic carpet. K. Pete hugged the two girls, giving Neekah Boo a soft kiss on her pretty cheek. Neekah Boo blushed as she waved good-bye. Flower smiled and said, “Be back in a flash! Don’t leave for the airfield without me.”

Angel Sylvie, Angel Lucy and Flower were gone a few minutes, since Flower insisted on helping the girls with their bags and the Angels wanted to say a quick hello to Neekah Boo’s Mom. K. Pete was warming up the vehicles they would be taking. Whiskers helped Talley gather their things, pulling out some mistletoe he had taken from the party last night. Talley laughed as her silly husband held the mistletoe over her head as he kissed her. Talley mewed, “You never need an excuse to kiss me sweetheart!”

Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs, my precious Talley.

“I would rather have one smell of her fur or one touch of her paw than an eternity without it.”

Whiskers woke up with his Talley wrapped
tightly in his arms. Being away from her for just a few days seemed like a lifetime. When he had seen Talley waiting for him at the airfield last night, he couldn’t stop the tears that filled his eyes. Whiskers loved his beautiful wife so much, it sometimes scared him. She completed his life and he never wanted to be without her. Talley opened her big green eyes, kissing Whiskers good morning. Talley said as if reading his mind, “I missed you too sweetheart, but you never left my heart.” Whiskers smiled and gave Talley a deep kiss. He said, “They say ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder,’ but I can’t imagine my heart growing any fonder of you. My heart belongs to you always and furever.” Talley smiled and laid her head on Whisker’s furry chest. She said, “I can hardly wait for you and your sisters to see the snow at the Castle. The Angels did a fantastic job making it look like Christmas in July. I know most of our shelter furiends are still getting over the severe winter we had, but playing in snow while the sun is shining will be fun.” Whiskers nodded and said, “I can hardly wait to see it too. Maybe we’ll be able to build a snowman with the kids.”

Whiskers saw his formal Feline Force Uniform hanging next to Talley’s delicate ball gown. The emerald gown matched the color of Talley’s beautiful eyes and the bodice embellished with jewels and sequins glimmered in the morning light. Whiskers said, “Thank you for picking up my uniform from the dry cleaners sweetheart. I’ll be escorting the prettiest girl at the ball and I’ll need to look my best.” Talley smiled and said, “Did your pawrents have a nice time with their family?” Whiskers nodded and said, “Yes they did and Mom’s dinner was a big success. Everyone loved the zucchini pasta and Aunt Donna is going to buy the cool gadget that spiral cuts vegetables. You have to thank your Dad for us. My Uncle Larry is a very finicky eater, but he really enjoyed his meal.” Talley said, “That’s wonderful sweetheart. I’ll be sure to let my Dad know. We better get up to get ready for our busy day.” Whiskers nodded giving Talley one more kiss, happy to be back with his precious wife.

Pearl and the kittens were busy in the kitchen fixing breakfast this morning. Flower was sitting in his Aunt Callie’s lap, welcoming his Aunties back home when he saw his Uncle Whiskers and Auntie Talley come to the table. Flower jumped into his Uncle’s arms saying, “We missed you Uncle Whiskers. I’m glad you made it back in time for the Christmas in July party. We’re going to get to play in the snow today!” Whiskers laughed and said, “I missed all of you too buddy and I wouldn’t have missed the snow party for the world.”

Callie helped Angel Maggie pour the coffee and hot chocolate. Liliana poked her head out from the kitchen saying, “Breakfast is almost ready. Flower, you can ring the dinner bell whenever you’re ready.” Flower smiled broadly and jumped up to ring the bell.
The girls brought the meal to the table. Whiskers said, “What are we having this morning? It looks lovely.” Pearl smiled and said, “The girls tried a new recipe this morning. It’s called “Rainbow Silver Dollar Pancakes.” The platters were filled with colorful pancakes, red for raspberry, yellow for banana and blue for blueberry. The girls had added a few drops of gel food coloring to give the pancakes their bright colors. Pearl had prepared a scrumptious maple syrup with cinnamon, vanilla and a touch of rum. The food almost looked too pretty to eat.

The family joined paws and said the morning prayer with thanks for having the whole family back together. Whiskers looked at his phone to read a text message. He said with a heavy heart, “Our furiend Jesse became an angel this morning. He is a young kitten once again.” Everyone bowed the heads as they kept holding paws and prayed for their dear furiend and his family.

Angel Sylvia, Angel Lucy and Angel Maggie said they would go to be there to welcome Angel Jesse over the Rainbow Bridge. The happy morning had turned to one of sadness. Whiskers said, “We have to remember Jesse wasn’t feeling well and now he is at peace. We’ll never forget him and he’ll live on furever in our hearts.” Whiskers wiped the tears falling from Talley’s eye, taking her in his arms to try to comfort her.

The family ate quietly, thanking the kittens for a lovely breakfast and everyone helping to clean up. Whiskers said to Talley, “I know it will be hard to enjoy the Castle festivities today, but let’s try to do it for Jesse. I think he would want it that way.” Talley nodded and mewed, “For Jesse. May God bless him and his dear family.”

Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs my precious Talley.

Safe Within Our Love
~~~~~
How did this miracle happen
That we're so very blessed,
So close…and more contented,
Than I ever would have guessed.

I never thought that I
Could spend each precious minute
With just one special cat
And find happiness within it.

I've learned so much from you
About loving, sharing, giving;
I know if I hadn't met you,
I wouldn't be really living.

We're facing life together;
We're handling joy and sorrow;
I'm glad you're on my side,
Whatever comes tomorrow.

You're my perfect partner,
Sweet lover, trusted furiend.
We're safe within our love,
A love that will never end.

Hi Talley My Precious Love ♥
I miss you so much sweetheart. I’ll be back tomorrow night and counting the minutes until then. Thank you so much for sending me the delicious recipes for Tapas from your Dad. My tummy was growling just reading it. My Mom is making the Lemon Mushroom Chicken recipe for dinner tonight. My Uncle Larry and Aunt Donna are here, so us kitties are hiding out. Callie and I came out to welcome Aunt Donna, but only for a moment. She brought us some cat treats but we’re not too sure of her yet. Mom showed Aunt Donna a picture of you and your family and she thinks you are all so very beautiful. I knew that!

We’ll be back in time for the Christmas In July Royal Ball sweetheart. Don’t leave without us! I’ll be dreaming of you my love.

Sending you soft purrs and warm hugs my beautiful Talley.

When I'm With You
~~~~~
When I'm with you,
eternity is a step away,
my love continues to grow,
with each passing day.

This treasure of love,
I cherish within my soul,
how much I love you...
you'll never really know.

You bring a joy to my heart,
I've never felt before,
with each touch of your paw,
I love you more and more.

Whenever we say goodbye,
whenever we part,
know I hold you dearly,
deep inside my heart.

So these seven words,
I pray you hold true,
"Furever And Always,
I Will Love You."

Whiskers stretched his arms over his head
as he yawned. Talley smiled and kissed her husband good morning. Whiskers said, “Boy, was that ever a delicious buffet dinner we had last night. Angel Maggie and Callie really know how to lay out a scrumptious spread. I loved the Gambas al Ajillo and the Albondigas, I’ll have to get the recipe for my Mom because I know my Dad would love it.” Talley got up out of bed to look out the window. She said, “Well, it looks like the winds have died down, but it’s still raining outside.“ Whiskers got up to look and said, “The thunder booms kept waking me up last night. I kept thinking about how nice it is to not have to worry about our shelter furiends when the weather is so severe. The thunder is still frightening, but I least we know they are all safe and warm. I wonder how the raccoons held up during the storm? It was really nice of Mitch to let them stay in the shelter. That guy has a heart of gold.” Talley smiled and nodded. She said, “I think Mitch remembers and appreciates having the shelters when he and his furiends needed them. It’s only right to pass that forward. Mitch is a strong and good-hearted fellow. We are fortunate to have him in our lives.”

Pearl and the kittens had baked Apple Croissants for the family. Tabitha described the delicious smelling pastries as flaky, buttery and crumbly, with ample hunks of fresh, juicy apples in the center, dusted with cinnamon and sugar. Tabitha giggled and said, “Well, that’s what the recipe says on my tablet.” The delicious aromas wafted through the air. Whisker’s nose zeroed in on the smell of apples baking. He groaned as his tummy began to rumble. Talley smiled at her silly husband, patting his tummy lightly with her paw.
Meanwhile, Whitey and Orangie had prepared Maple Glazed Ham Steak and eggs, over easy. Daisy and Liliana set the table, with Flower right behind them carrying warm platters of tater tots and toast to accompany the steak and eggs. Pearl helped her kids off with their aprons so they could join the family.

The family was already seated at the table, sipping their hot café lattes. Flower could hardly wait to sit down and enjoy a sip of his hot chocolate with whipped cream, but first he asked his Auntie Angel Maggie if he could ring the dinner bell. Angel Maggie laughed and said, “Don’t you think we should give one of your sisters a turn at ringing the bell?” Flower had a dejected look on his face for just a second, but then he turned with the bell in his paws and ran over to his sisters. “Would one you girls like the honors?” The kittens smiled and said, “Let’s all ring the dinner bell together!”

“Ding, ding, ding” rang throughout the dining room. Everyone laughed and Whiskers helped Flower into his seat saying, “I’m proud of you buddy. Learning to share is very important, especially in a family as big as ours. You’ll be a fine leader someday.” Flower was grinning from ear to ear. Mitch kissed Pearl on her cheek, as they looked on proudly at the kids.

Flower asked to say grace. The family joined paws as the little skunk spoke.
“Our Father in Heaven, for this meal You have given, we want to say thank You from our hearts. Bless the ones who prepared it, and Lord as we share it, will You stay with us and be our guest of Honor?

Please Lord, watch over our furiends Neekah Boo and Jesse and their worried families. Amen.”

The conversation at the table was of the loud storm last night and the power outage. Mitch and K. Pete had been out to check the property for any damage, but everything looked good. K. Pete said, “We checked the shelters and it looks like our raccoons guests are gone. The food bins and water bowls were empty, so we know they didn’t leave hungry.” Whiskers finished chewing the delicious food in his mouth before saying, “Maybe the raccoons will let some of the other animals know there is a safe haven here when they need it. I know we can’t rescue all the animals in need, but at least we can make sure they don’t starve.” Talley said, “I’m sure most of the animals wouldn’t want to stay in the shelters, but it is nice to have it there when they need it.” K. Pete agreed and said, “After we return from our flying lessons, weather permitting, we’ll go to all the shelters and replenish the food and water.”

Whiskers and Talley helped the girls clean the kitchen before getting ready to head down to the airfield. Whiskers held Talley in his arms, giving her a deep kiss. He mewed, “I love you Tallulah. More than tongue can tell.”

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my beloved wife.

I Love All of You ♥
~~~~~
I love your soft kisses.
I love your soft touch.
I love the way you bite your lip.
I love you soooooo much.

I love the way you look at me.
I love the way you smile.
I love the way you're shy sometimes,
Every once and a while.

I love it when you look at me,
When I'm not looking at you.
You think I do not realize it,
But really...I do.

I love the way you cuddle.
I love the way you sleep.
I love the way you rub your neck,
when you are thinking so deep.

I love all of you,
Your nose, your lips, your fur, your feet.
I will never stop loving you.
You are so amazingly sweet.

I love that I love you.
I have loved you from the very start.
I LOVE ALL OF YOU,
I now hand you the key to my heart.

Whiskers kissed his beautiful Talley good
morning as they both laid snuggled in each other arms, listening to the songbirds singing outside their window. Talley said, “I’m surprised to hear the birds singing this morning. It’s supposed to be raining all day today.” Whiskers nodded and said, “I think it might just be a light rain falling because I can’t hear it, but it looks awfully dark for this time of morning. We have the Water Sport’s Day event at Sandy, Ana, Haley and the Angels house today. Maybe when we go, we should bring some board games with us in case of rain.” Talley nodded and said that was a good idea. She said, “We’ll need to ask Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy if they’ll be able to transport us. I know they’ve been busy doing maintenance on the planes, preparing for our next trip to the Castle for Queen Angel Wendy’s ‘Christmas in July’ pawty.”
Whiskers nodded and said, “Those girls always do so much for us. We should have a party for them sometime at the house. We could fix their favorite foods and invite some of their special furiends; just to let them know how much we appreciate and love them. Talley smiled and said, “They are pretty special. I’ll talk to my family and see what ideas we can come up with. For now, let’s just make sure we tell them every day how special they are.”
Whiskers rolled out of bed, holding out his paw to his lovely wife. He said, “We better get ready for our day sweetheart. I’ll wash your back if you’ll wash mine!” Talley giggled, taking her husband’s paw and following him to the shower.

Callie and Angel Maggie were in the kitchen bright and early to show Liliana, Tabitha, Daisy and Flower how to prepare Eggs Benedict. The kids all had their tiny chef’s hats on and their notebooks out, ready to cook and learn. Angel Maggie told them, “Making Hollandaise sauce is the most intimidating step in eggs Benedict. Let’s start by adding a small amount of warm water to the egg yolks and then some warm lemon juice and season to taste.” The kids were watching intently, jotting down notes as fast as they could. Angel Maggie smiled at the little chefs and continued. “Now let’s heat the egg mixture over a pot of simmering water while whisking vigorously. Here, Flower, I’ll let you demonstrate.” Flower hopped up onto the stool by the stove and proceeded to whisk expertly. “Great Job Flower,” Angel Maggie said. “Now let’s remove the egg mixture from the heat and add warm clarified bitter in a slow drizzle.” Callie had the melted butter ready as she assisted her little nephew. Meanwhile, the kittens were toasting the English muffins in a buttery fry pan. Next, Angel Maggie helped the girls warm the Canadian bacon slices in the fry pan and place them on top of the muffin halves.

Flower’s tummy let out a loud growl, causing the girls to giggle. Callie smiled and said, “Thank you Flower for our first compliment of the morning!” Callie helped Flower bring a quart of water to a simmer, adding vinegar and a pinch of kosher salt. Flower gently added the eggs to the simmering water to poach. Flower poached the eggs removing them from the water, as the kittens drained the excess water on paper towels and placed the eggs on top of the Canadian bacon. Finally the kids topped each egg with Hollandaise sauce, adding some steamed asparagus as a tasty garnish. The finished product looked delicious. The breakfast chefs were all beaming with pride.

Pearl had been watching her kids in action, always the proud Mama. She had fixed some nice, strong Kona coffee for the family while they waited and some fresh squeezed orange juice. For the kids, she had fixed a delicious chocolate hazelnut cocoa with fresh whipped cream. Breakfast was ready to be served.

The table was set as the family joined paws with Flower leading the prayer. The little skunk bowed his head and spoke in a happy voice.

“When I get up, I'm thankful for a brand-new day.
When I get dressed, I'm thankful I can run and play.
When I sit down to eat, I'm thankful for my food.
And most of all, I'm thankful for a God who is so good.

And please dear Lord, look after our dear furiend Neekah Boo and her family, Jesse and his family and all those who are in need. Amen.”

Breakfast was so delicious; the conversation at the table was non-existent for the first ten minutes. Angel Maggie smiled and told the kids, “A silent table is one of the best compliments a chef can get.” Everyone laughed and mewed their thank yous to the girls.

Whiskers reminded everyone of the Water Sports Pawty today. Angels’ Sylvie and Lucy-Fur said they would be happy to take the family on their magic carpet. Flower ears perked up and he said, “My sisters and I have lots of fun board games we can take. We have “The Cat In The Hat Game”, “Cat-Opoly” and one of my favorites, “Rat-a-Tat-Cat”, where the object of the game is to avoid the rats and collect the cats.” Whitey chimed in and said she had a favorite card game called “Good Cat Bad Cat” - a game of strategy, bluffing, and paranoia. Callie said she would bake some “Cinnabunnies” to take to the pawty. Those were her bunny-shaped cinnamon rolls.

Another day of family, furiends and fun was underway. Whiskers followed Talley to the kitchen, helping her clear the table while the rest of the family got ready. Whiskers took Talley in his arms and gave her a deep kiss. He whispered in her ear, “Only you, you’re the only thing I’ll see furever. In my eyes, in my words and in everything I do. I love you sweet Tallulah.”

Sending you soft kisses and hugs.

Whiskers had been dreaming last night
of the beautiful helicopter ballet Talley and Angel Mallow had performed for the Castle Campout. The Ride of the Valkyrie had sent the crowd of kitties wild. Whiskers was so very proud of his talented wife. Whiskers looked at Talley’s lovely face as she lay sleeping in his arms. Talley was understandably tired after a very busy and fun weekend. He started to hum softly, not wanting to wake his beloved wife. His heart was bursting with love for her. Talley kept her eyes closed, but Whiskers could see a smile on her lips. Whiskers couldn’t resist kissing Talley’s pretty pink lips. He said, “Good morning my love. Did you sleep as well as I did? I dreamt all night of the wonderful weekend we had together with our family and furiends.”
Talley nodded and mewed, “I know Ms. Murphy and Raven had a grand time seeing Smudge, Bart and their family. I hope we see more of Smudge and the boys here.” Whiskers said, “I can’t remember ever seeing Whitey and Orangie happier. They’re like kittens when they are around Blue and Hedley. I know I can feel love in the air when Neekah Boo and K. Pete are together too. Those two kitties make the perfect couple.” Talley agreed and wished everyone could be as happy as her and Whiskers.

Whiskers said, “I think everyone will be ready for a nice, relaxing day today. Maybe we can all sit out by the pool with the kids and plan a BBQ for dinner tonight. I heard K. Pete mention the Queen is planning another Castle pawty this Sunday, so we’ll all need to prepare for the festivities. My Mom and Dad are having company over to their house this Friday & Saturday. Mom’s brother and his wife are coming from San Diego for a short summer vacation visit. I’ll be without my blogger on Saturday, but you know we’re always together right here.” Whiskers placed Talley’s paw on his heart. Talley smiled and said, “Together furever, my precious Whiskers.”

Pearl came out from the kitchen carrying a huge platter filled with assorted cheeses and fresh fruit. Whiskers commented on how it looked too pretty to eat. Whitey was right behind Pearl with hot coffee and hot chocolate for the kitties. Whitey filled everyone cups and said, “Orangie, Tabitha, Liliana and Daisy are just about ready to serve breakfast. The girls prepared some scrambled eggs and bacon, using real eggs and bacon this time! No more freeze dried food until our next campout.” K. Pete laughed and said, “You have to admit, the food was pretty good and we definitely weren’t going to starve out there.” Flower giggled, patting his tummy and saying, “My tummy had a great time camping!” Whiskers tousled the fur on his little nephew’s head and said, “You and me both buddy.”

The kitties joined paws to say grace and give thanks for another morning together. Whiskers added a prayer for Neekah Boo and her family. Whiskers said, “I’d like to include a prayer for our furiend Jesse from the Zoo Crew. I received a message from his Mom this morning that Jesse is very ill and had stopped eating.” The kitties bowed their heads and prayed for dear furiend and his family. Whiskers squeezed Talley’s paw tightly when he saw tears in her eyes.

The kitties all enjoyed their breakfast, talking about their camping adventures and the great time they all had being with their furiends. After thanking the girls for a wonderful meal, Whiskers and Talley helped clear the table. Whiskers pulled Talley into his arms and said, “If you like, you and I can take a walk to the Angel Tunnels and visit the religious shrines.” Talley nodded her head sadly and said she would like that. Whiskers held her in his arms for a moment, kissing her softly and saying, “Through good times and bad, we always have each other my love.”

Sending you soft kisses and hugs, my beloved Talley.

You Touched My Heart ♥
~~~~~
You've given me a reason
For smiling once again,
You've filled my life with peaceful dreams
and you've become my closest friend.

You've shared your heartfelt secrets
And your trust you've given me,
You showed me how to feel again
To laugh, and love, and see.

If life should end tomorrow
And from this world I should part,
I shall be furever young
For you have touched my heart

Whiskers and Talley had gotten up early
to pack their bags. Whiskers rolled their sleeping bag up, neatly slipping it into its cover. He looked a little sad and said, “I had such a wonderful time with you sweetheart, camping in the great outdoors. I hate to see it come to an end.” Talley smiled and kissed her husband. She mewed, “We’ll do it again sometime soon my love. Our home is surrounded by a beautiful lush forest. We could have an overnight campout right in our own yard. I bet the kids would love that. They really enjoyed telling stories and cooking over the fire.” Whiskers kissed Talley back, smoothing the soft fur on her cheeks. He said, “I really enjoyed the romance of camping with my beautiful girl. Thank you for a magical weekend my love.”
Talley smiled as the two kitties continued to pack up their belongings.

Callie, Angel Maggie, Whitey & Orangie were busy cooking their last campfire breakfast, trying to use the remainder of the MREs they had packed for the trip. The girls were preparing a one skillet breakfast that was packed with proteins and carbs. Whitey had a large skillet over the Coleman stove, frying up a batch of potatoes to a nice golden brown. Callie was helping Orangie prepare the packages of freeze dried onions and garlic, along with the powdered eggs. Angel Maggie added the onions, garlic and sausage pieces the girls had readied for her, into the large skillet with the potatoes, breaking up the sausage as it cooked. Callie was now ready to add the egg mixture as Angel Maggie quickly mixed them through the entire pan, cooking just until the eggs began to set. Orangie stood by to add the cheddar cheese at just the right moment. Angel Maggie covered the pan to allow the cheese to melt. The girls smiled at how efficiently they worked together. Pearl came out from the dining room tent after pouring everyone cups of coffee and hot chocolate for the kids. Pearl said, “Everything is set in the dining tent - whenever you girls are ready.”
Callie said, “I almost forgot. I have some of Talley’s apple pies warming in the dutch oven. Whiskers would never forgive me if I forgot to serve his favorite food in the whole world.” The girls laughed and helped her slice up the pies to take to the table.
Flower was watching his Aunts intently as they cooked. He held the dinner bell in his paws, anxious to ring it. Angel Maggie looked over at her little nephew with a big smile and said, “Okay sweetie! It’s time to eat.” Flower jumped up excitedly, ringing the bell and shouting, “Breakfast is served! Breakfast is served!””

Whitey was already seated in the dining tent, delighted that her furiend Blue and his family had come for breakfast. As they sipped coffee together, Blue told Whitey and the family he hadn’t wanted to miss out on the festivities, so better late than never.
Smudge was sitting with Ms. Murphy, deep in conversation, while Bart and his brothers sat chatting with Raven, Chloe and Mitch.
Neekah Boo and Fatty arrived next, looking fresh and lovely. K. Pete got up to pull out some chairs for his furiends, while Pearl continued to pour the coffee and cocoa for every one.
Orangie spotted Hedley walking over to their campsite. She waved at him, welcoming him over. Hedley gave her a warm hug and said his brothers were already at the airfield getting ready to start flying some of the kitties back home.

Flower was still ringing the mealtime bell with a goofy smile on his face. He walked over to Bobby, Inky and Storm’s tent, ringing the bell by their door. Bobby unzipped the tent door, ushering Flower inside. Flower looked around and said, “Wow! I thought you guys were just being sleepy heads, but I see you’re all packed and ready to head back home.” Bobby nodded and said, “We thought we could help everyone else pack now. We smell something awfully good coming from the dining tent, so lead the way buddy.”

Everyone seemed to really enjoy their last campout morning and they all had compliments for the chefs. K. Pete told Whiskers, him and Angels Sylvie and Lucy had already been down to the airfield this morning. He said, “Shaddie and Thundie are there with several of the Royal Pilots getting ready for the return flights home. I thought we should help disassemble and pack up the tents and all our camping gear. Then we can return to the airfield.” Callie said to her brothers and Neekah Boo and Fatty, “If you girls don’t have to go home just yet, Angel Maggie and I will take you back home with us. We can all relax there and prepare a nice dinner for everyone after their long day.” Neekah Boo said that sounded nice. She was feeling a little tired and a short catnap at the house sounded good.

Whitey, Orangie, Raven, Ms. Murphy and Talley all volunteered as flight attendants. Pearl said she, Chloe and the kittens would stay at the campground to make sure no one forgets anything. Pearl smiled and said, “We’ll make sure we leave our campsite tidy and neat for the next lucky campers.”

As they all finished their breakfast, saying their good-byes to one another, Flower tugged on his Uncle Whiskers arm. Whiskers smiled, picking up the little skunk in his arms. “What’s up buddy? You want to go to the airfield with us, don’t you?” Flower gave his Uncle a big kiss on his cheek and said, “Thank you Uncle Whiskers! You can read my mind!” Whiskers winked at Talley as he took her dainty paw and they followed everyone outside to begin a very busy day.

Sending you soft kisses and hugs, my precious Talley.

IF THERE WERE NO TOMMOROW
~~~~~
I would tell you today
That you are the one that fills my life
Whose smile I cannot wait to see
Whose arms I long to have wrapped around me
Whose lips I live to kiss
Softly, passionately, in every way.

I would want you to know
That you make my heart skip a beat
You fill my soul with contentment
You brighten my dark skies
You fill my days and nights
With stars, hopes, and cascading dreams.

I would want you to see
How beautiful the world looks with your eyes through mine
Your eyes light up the sky
Your touch paints the Heavens
Your kiss creates amazing rainbows
Of beauty, sunshine, and life.

I would want you to understand
That I have always loved you
Before I knew there was you
Before our eyes ever met
Before I found in you
Happiness, completeness, and passion.

If there were no tomorrow
I would tell you
That you are the greatest gift in my life
Whose love I cherish above all else
You sustain me with
Your laughter, love, and friendship
Before there was no knowing
I'd tell you I love you infinitely, without boundaries, and beyond time.

Whiskers loved their sleeping bag
built for two. He could never get enough of snuggling with his beautiful wife. The soft flannel sleeping bag fit him and Talley like a glove. Whiskers pressed his face next to Talley’s cheek, his heart bursting with love for her. Talley smiled and mewed, “I slept wonderful last night. Having you next to me sweetheart, is like having my very own personal fur coat.” Whiskers laughed and said, “I knew my abundance of fur would come in handy someday. Last night I dreamt of the fantastic air show we all put on yesterday. You and Angel Mallow were amazing in your helicopter ballet. You girls had the audience enthralled from start to finish. And the Angel Flight Squadron and our own Royal Squadron Pilots were sensational too. I think all in all, the Feline Empire Air Show was one the CC kitties won’t soon forget. We owe a debt of gratitude to K. Pete and Angel Queen Cherish.” Talley smiled and said, “Ms. Murphy, Raven and Josie Mae did a stellar job at narrating the shows too. I do believe the Castle Campout has been a huge success so far. I saw a huge smile on Queen Angel Wendy’s face afterwards. We made our beautiful Queen proud.”

Whiskers gave his Talley a deep kiss and said, “As much as I love laying next to you, my precious wife, I think we better get dressed for another wonderful day. I hear a lot of bustling outside already. I wonder what the girls are cooking this morning? The campfire corned beef stew last night was delicious. I think I ended up eating more than my fair share, but I couldn’t help myself. We definitely won’t starve out here. The only thing I really miss from home is your yummy apple pie.” Talley laughed and said, “Oh Whiskers! I completely forgot I packed a few apple pies in one of the coolers.” Whiskers hugged Talley tightly to him and said, “Have I told you lately that I love you?” Talley smiled demurely and mewed, “I can never hear those words from your lips often enough.” Just then Whiskers and Talley heard the breakfast bell ringing and they broke out into an uncontrollable laughter. Whiskers said, “I think Angel Maggie and Callie like announcing mealtime with that bell. We’ll probably start hearing that at home too!”

Outside the tents it was a hubbub of activity. Whiskers looked around to see where the coffee was brewing. Callie and Angel Maggie were over by the campfire cooking grill, waving him over.

Whiskers said, “Good morning sisters. Something smells awfully good.” Angel Maggie smiled and handed Whiskers two cups of coffee. She said, “This should wake you up brother. Take one to Talley. Callie and I added some espresso to it for an extra punch.” Whiskers took a sip and said, “Ah, it’s delicious. Let me go find Talley. Thanks girls.” Callie said, “Meet us in the dining room tent. Angel Maggie and I prepared some cheesy scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage and baked tater tots. We’ll start serving in a few minutes.”

Whiskers found Talley and they walked over to where Neekah Boo, Fatty, Flower and K. Pete were sitting by a grove of trees. Neekah Boo was snapping pictures of the morning campsite activities with her fancy new Canon SLR camera that K. Pete had given her. Fatty and Flower were trying to get some close up shots of the squirrels running around in the trees above them. K. Pete was smiling, obviously happy to see Neekah Boo and her sister Fatty having such a good time.
Flower ran over to hug his Uncle Whiskers and Aunt Talley. He said with a big smile on his face, “Good morning sleepy heads! Did you hear the dinner bell ringing? Aunties Maggie and Callie let me ring it this morning! I think the sound of the bell brought all the squirrels out too!” Flower excitedly pointed up into the trees. Fatty looked at her camera and said, “I think we got some great pictures of our furry furiends. Maybe we should leave them some nuts while we all go have breakfast.” Angel Maggie smiled and gave Flower a bag of acorns to spread around. Flower ran off to get his sisters and see if Bobby, Inky and Storm wanted to feed the squirrels too.

Whitey and Orangie came out of their tent, looking fresh and lovely. Whiskers told them so as the two kitties blushed. Whitey said, “I got a text message from my furiend Blue last night. He said him and his fursibs are going to try to stop by later.” Orangie was looking around the campground when she mewed, “I’m hoping Hedley and his brothers stop by to have breakfast with all of us.
K. Pete said, “Why don’t you, Neekah Boo, Fatty and I take walk over to Hedley’s campsite to invite them. They’re just a couple of campsites over and the girls can take some more pictures on their cameras.” Orangie nodded excitedly.

Whiskers took Talley’s paw as they walked to the dining tent. It was filled with conversation and laughter as all the kitties talked of the day activities that awaited them. K. Pete and the girls were back in no time at all. Orangie was smiling from ear to ear, accompanied by Hedley, Jakar & Q. Lily, and K. Neelix and Katie. There were good mornings and paw shakes all around as everyone took their seats.

Callie and Angel Maggie brought the food to the table, assisted by Flower and his sisters. Just as they were all joining paws to say grace, they heard a soft voice mewing outside the tent saying, “Hello. I hope I’m not too late.” Whiskers and Flower jumped out of their seats, recognizing Chloe’s voice. Flower squealed, “Here we are Aunt Chloe. You made it!” Chloe came inside and mewed, “I hope I’m not intruding. I’ve been working all weekend on some quilts. I get so caught up in my work, time just flies by. I did see the spectacular air show yesterday from my balcony and I just had to come by to join in on the festivities.”

Chloe was welcomed by everyone and happily sat down to eat with her family and furiends. The conversation at the table was of all the fun everyone had been having on their Castle Campout. The boys were talking about getting some fishing in today by the pond and eating some more delicious campfire food. The girls giggled and said they would be happy to have a fish fry with whatever the guys brought back.

Whiskers asked K. Pete if they would be flying the kitties back to their homes today or should we wait to see if they’d like to fly back tomorrow. K. Pete said he would talk to Angel Q. Cherish and see what she wanted to do. Ms. Murphy and Raven were having a grand time with Smudge and his family, so they said they would check with them and encourage the boys to stay until Monday morning. Angel Sylvia Seville and Angel Lucy-Fur both told their brother they would be prepared for whatever he decided. K. Pete hugged his sisters, knowing they always had his back. Neekah Boo smiled at K. Pete and said, “My sister Fatty and I wouldn’t mind staying until tomorrow. We’re having a fabulous time with you and all our furiends.”

Whiskers stood up lifting his compostable juice cup and mewed,
"May the hinges of friendship never rust, nor the wings of love lose a feather."
The room full of family and furiends shouted “Hear, hear! To love and furiendships!”

Whiskers and Talley insisted on helping the girls clean up after another wonderful meal. All the kitties decided they would meet at the pond with their fishing gear. Talley kissed Whiskers and said she wanted to take Chloe to their tent to stow her bag and loan her a pair of shoes and shorts, more suitable for fishing by the pond. Whiskers would help his brother gather up their fishing poles and tackle boxes. Whiskers pulled Talley into his arms to whisper “I love you beautiful girl,” once more before starting another glorious day.

Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs, my beloved Talley.

“I’m thinking of you, that’s all I do, all the time. You’re always the first and the last thing on this heart of mine. No matter where I go, or what I do, I’m thinking of you.”

Whiskers opened his eyes early, breathing
deeply to take in the wonderful fresh outdoor air. It was still dark outside, but Whiskers knew his brother K. Pete would be up already, preparing to go to the airfield to make sure every kitty had transportation to the Castle Campout. Talley felt Whiskers stirring, her eyelids still sleepy from a good night’s sleep. She reached out her paw to touch Whiskers. Whiskers put his arms around his sleeping beauty and said, “Sssshh, go back to sleep my love. Your brother and I are going to the airfield to check on the arrivals. We know Angel Sylvia and Angel Lucy-Fur are down there already with several other kitties, but we want to be there if extra help is needed. We’ll be back in time for breakfast. Callie and Angel Maggie are going to try out the powdered eggs.” Whiskers laughed and said, “Maybe I’ll lose some weight eating this freeze dried food.” Talley giggled and kissed her husband. “Oh Whiskers,” she mewed. “My Dad said the packaged food isn’t that bad, especially if your tummy is hungry.” Whiskers smiled and said, “I’m just teasing you honey. This will make me really appreciate how good I have it home.” Talley kissed her husband good-bye and mewed, “Hurry back sweetheart.”

K. Pete was outside with Callie, Angel Maggie and Pearl. The girls had hot coffee brewing on the Coleman stove and toasted bagels with butter. K. Pete waved at Whiskers, pouring him a cup of coffee. He asked, “How did you and Talley sleep last night?” Whiskers took a sip of his coffee and said, “We slept like kittens. The fresh air and the sounds of crickets and hooting owls made for a very restful night. And the air mattresses were great. I was surprised I was able to jump right out of bed and feel so energized.” K. Pete smiled and said, “I feel pretty good too. I hope Neekah Boo and Fatty feel the same way.” Whiskers nodded and said, “They looked tired, but very happy last night when they went to bed. I think spending a couple of days in the outdoors will do wonders for Neekah Boo’s health. We’ll just keep a close eye on her and make sure she doesn’t tire herself out.
Callie overheard her brothers talking and said, “We should have breakfast ready for them by the time they get up. Angel Maggie and I are still trying to read the directions on this packaged food. We’re fixing a Sausage and Egg Scramble skillet with fried Hash Browns this morning. Angel Maggie was busy hydrating the egg powder in a mixing bowl. She laughed and called Callie over. “This actually doesn’t look bad. We’ll need to add some spices, but this is going to be fun!” Callie smiled and high-pawed her sister.

Whiskers and K. Pete hopped into the Suburban and headed down the road to the field. Angels’ Lucy and Sylvia met them with warm hugs and smiles. Angel Sylvie said, “Everything is under control here. We’ve already started to do the maintenance on the Gulfstream SST and the Royal Dreamliner for the return trips home. Angel Q. Cherish and her angel squadron are ready to transport any last minute arrivals. Mitch came with us this morning because he’s a bit nervous and excited about flying in the air show. He’s been shuttling the golf cart to the campground with the few kitties that are still arriving.” K. Pete smiled and said, “Great job girls. I’ll stay here and wait for Mitch to get back from his last run. Whiskers, why don’t you head back to our campsite and tell the family we’ll be there soon and to save some breakfast for us.” Whiskers nodded and said, “Will do.” Whiskers hugged Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy, thanking them for always looking after everything and he took off back to the campground. On the road back, he saw three kitties walking together, carrying very large backpacks. Whiskers pulled the truck over to offer them a lift and was happily surprised to see Bobby, Inky and Storm. Whiskers exclaimed, “Hey you guys! Jump on in. I’m on my way back to my family’s campsite. We’ll be just in time for breakfast.” The three kitties had big smiles on their faces, happy to accept the invitation. Whiskers told his furiends they were all welcome to stay at the campsite with Flower and the family. The boys were overjoyed.
It was still early in the morning with the sun just beginning to rise. Whiskers smiled as he drove up to campsite seeing all his family sitting in the dining tent and some sitting by the unlit campfire, enjoying hot coffee and hot chocolate. Flower ran out to greet his Uncle, when he spied his furiends in the truck. Flower screamed, jumping up and down, running over to greet his buddies. Flower’s screams alarmed Pearl and the girls, who all came running out to see what all the excitement was about. Pearl breathed a sigh of relief when she saw their furiends. Whiskers helped the boys unload their backpacks and he said, “Look who I ran into on my way back!” Flower looked at his Mama with pleading eyes and said, “Can they please stay with us tonight Mama?” Raven smiled at Pearl and said, “Ms. Murphy and I will make accommodations for them if it’s okay with you.” Pearl thanked Raven and told Flower his furiends were very welcome to stay the weekend with them.
