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 woke up to the sound
of Whisker’s cell phone vibrating on the nightstand. Whiskers looked at Talley and said, “I better get that. It must be my Mom.” Whiskers kissed Talley and jumped up to answer his phone. Talley watched Whisker’s face to see if it was good news. When she saw Whiskers smiling, Talley breathed a sigh of relief. After Whiskers hung up, he crawled back into bed with his beautiful wife. ” I know it’s time for us to get up, but I like to start my day snuggling with you first.” Talley smiled and asked, “What did your Mom say? Did she get Ebony to the vet this morning?”
Whiskers nodded happily and said, “Yep. My Mom got Ebony into his cat carrier and she did it without getting a scratch. Ebony loves canned tuna, so that made it easy for Mom. When they got to the vet, my Mom and the vet were very cautious about getting Ebony from the carrier. The vet called in her assistant to help just in case. The good news is that Ebony didn’t put up a fight this time. He growled a little bit, but he let Mom hold him on the exam table while the vet gave him the rest of his shots and this time she was also able to run her hands over his body, checking for any abnormalities. His blood work came back good too. Ebony is a healthy cat!”

Talley smiled and kissed her husband. “That’s wonderful news sweetheart. I bet Ebony was glad to get back home.”
Whiskers said, “Yes he was! And Sugar Bear was very happy to see him. She was jumping around him like a kitten with a toy. Ebony jumped on top of the doghouse, which has been his favorite spot to nap in the backyard.”

Whiskers continued, “After my Mom brought Ebony back home from the vet, a neighbor of ours came over and asked Mom where she got her cats. He is one of the few neighbors that have lived in the neighborhood as long as my pawrents - over twenty years. He told my Mom his mother will be coming to live with him because she is too old to live alone. He wants to get her a cat or dog to keep her company. The neighbor knew Mom’s doggies from when she used to walk them every day, and he said he sees cats in the front windows now.
Anyway, Mom told him about Ebony and Sugar Bear. She told him their history and showed him the outdoor cathouse and the greenhouse that she was planning to use for them. My Mom told him she thought they would be great indoor cats, if that was what he wanted, but they had stay together.

My Mom took her neighbor into the backyard to see Ebony and Sugar Bear. Of course they both hid inside the doghouse, but Sugar Bear poked her head out to see what was going on.”
“The neighbor, his name is Ganesh (from India), said he would talk with his Mom about taking the two cats! My Mom said she would be happy to help set them up in their house if the time came.”

Talley exclaimed, “That’s wonderful news, right?” Whiskers nodded and said, “My Mom would love to see those two become inside cats, but she doesn’t want to get her hopes up for them yet. She still wants to introduce them to their new outside homes to see how they like them. Mom would also like to see if she can teach them to come through our garage into the backyard on their own. Right now Mom has to chase them into the backyard. Also, Callie and I haven’t been able to enjoy our backyard while they have been using it. Mom promised we would get our backyard back soon.”
“Mom decided not to even tell our Dad about the neighbor’s inquiry. If it happens, it will be wonderful; if it doesn’t happen, then that’s okay too.”

Talley hugged Whiskers and said, “I’ll keep my paws crossed sweetheart. Let’s go shower and get ready for our day.” Whiskers kissed Talley once more, thankful he had his precious love to always talk to.

Callie and Angel Maggie were making something they called the Meat Lover’s Scramble. They had gotten the recipe from their furiends Sandy, Ana and Haley during the Sport’s Day festivities. It was a meal in one, perfect for serving a large family. The fresh farm eggs were scrambled with bacon, sausage, ham, tomato, red onions and mushrooms, and sprinkled with shredded jack and cheddar cheeses. Pearl was busy making home-fried potatoes, toast and fresh pineapples slices to accompany the main dish.

Talley and Whiskers helped with the coffee and hot cocoa, before sitting down at the table with the rest of the family. Flower and his sisters were watching a video on Raven’s tablet, showing the Pocket Ship they would be building this winter. It was very cool and the kids couldn’t take their eyes off the video.
Whiskers peeked over their shoulders and said to K. Pete, “Thanks for sending me a clip of the video. The Pocket Ship looks like it will be fun to build. I’m glad you invited K. Thundie and Angel Q. Cherish to join us on the project. I just know we’ll be counting the days until winter is over and we can set sail!” K. Pete said, “Be sure to check out the website too. The website shows plans for kayaks, canoes, rowing boats, in addition to the sailboats.”
Whiskers nodded saying he would definitely check it out. Whiskers added, “I know Bobby, Inky and Storm will be a great help to us. This is going to be an exciting project.”

Breakfast was served to the hungry kitties and they all joined paws to say grace and pray for all their furiends and their families in need. Whiskers was happy to report to his family, that Dame Dot and K. Tucker’s doggie fursib Shadow, was on new medication and was looking a little better. Flower clapped his paws and said, “Yippee! Maybe our prayers will get answered!”
Whiskers tousled the fur on his little nephew’s head. Talley smiled and told her family the news about Ebony and Sugar Bear. Everyone was delighted.

The other topic of conversation was of the upcoming “Glory of Autumn” party on Tuesday of next week. It would be held at the Cat’s Meow Resort & Event Center and it would be a costume party. The kids were excited to hear this and could hardly wait to come home and plan what they would dress up as.

Another wonderful day was underway. Whiskers and Talley walked the kids to school, giving them hugs and kisses before sending them up the school steps. Whiskers and Talley walked slowly back home, paw in paw. There was a light breeze and the leaves from the trees were starting to fall to the ground. Whiskers stopped to take Talley in his arms, giving her a deep kiss. Talley smiled and mewed, “What was that for sweetheart?” Whiskers replied, looking into Talley’s beautiful green eyes, “I just love you so much Talley. Thank you for being my wife.”

Sending you soft kisses and hugs, my precious Tallulah.
~~~~~
Each time I look at you,
I realize how God
has been good to me.
He gave me the most beautiful,
caring, loving and passionate
kitty in the world.
I’m so lucky to have you.
I Love You,
My Dear Wife. ♥

Hi Talley, My Precious Love! ♥
I just wanted to let you know my Mom is running late today with my blogs. I didn't want you to worry sweetheart. My Mom did get Ebony to the vet today. He got the rest of his vaccinations and his blood work results are good. It is drizzling here today (whoo hoo!), so Mom is going to keep Ebony and Sugar Bear in the backyard for another day.

I'll meow at you soon my precious Talley.

Sending soft kisses and warm hug to you.

Thanks, Talley & the family!
That's a cool cover for my scooter and it came just in time. It's raining today! Now I just have to think of what I want from the Scooter Depot ... Thanks for the cake over on the Mews Room too. The strawberries sure make it look YUM!

I sure can’t believe I’m a whole year old already! In the non-virtual world Mom got me some catnip bubbles. I’m kind of nervous of them (blush), but they sure do smell interesting! In the CC world we celebrated with a different kind of big bubbles – we went Zorbing! That’s kind of like running around in big huge pillowy hamster balls. There’s a picture on my page, we have ALL different colours and the beach at Pinto Island looked like one giant game of marbles!

There was cake from the Evie & Mallow Bakery and some special ‘mallows, too. And burgers, LOTS of burgers! And pizza and root beer too. I had such a wonderful day and I’m so glad you came to join the fun! -- Mojo the big girl!

we wanted
to thank you for bringing so much food as sandy also outdid her-self in that area as she's like janet who loves to cook once she gets herself going and does it. not much going on here at the moment as we're all sleeping somewhere in the house and janet is the only one up and rushing through to get things done as much as she can before she's got to get the paper and take pepper out which usually she does before she starts blogging, but not this morning. down to 40 again and might be getting our first frost either tomorrow or saturday mornings, hoping not as janet's still got a lot coming in as we didn't have a very long growing season this year as they seem to keep getting shorter and shorter each year. she'll not have to many tomatoes next year, one big one and a few cherry and that's about it! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Whiskers and Talley lay in bed wide-awake,
snuggled tightly in each other’s arms. Today they would be going to the lovely home of Ana, Sandy, Haley and the Angels for Sport’s Day.
Whiskers kissed his beautiful wife on her soft lips, smoothing the silky fur on her cheek. He felt so blessed to have Talley as his furever soulmate. Whiskers said, “I couldn’t stop thinking last night about how Pearl and her babies came to be here. If it hadn’t been for K. Pete and his idea to build the shelters, I shudder to think of what might have happened to Pearl and her precious babies. Then I think back on our lives, before we came to be with our furever families and I know God has always been looking after all of us too. I think it’s important that we keep the shelters open during the winter. Even though most of the kitties know about the Castle and the new community for the shelter kitties, you just never who might pop up needing help.”
Talley nodded and said, “I’m positive my brother Pete and Mitch feel the same way. Sadly, there will always be animals that need help and we’ll be there for them. We can’t help all the animals in the world, but we can certainly help those that we encounter.”
Whiskers looked sad when he said, “I know my Mom feels the same way. She would really like to bring our outside fursibs, Ebony and Sugar Bear inside the house with all of us, but she especially worries about my sister Callie and how she would take it. Callie has always been the fragile, sickly one and my Mom doesn’t want to upset her too much. Having Whitey and Orangie in the house this past year has been quite an adjustment for Callie, but she seems to finally be settling in to the new living situation. My Mom thinks Sugar Bear would easily adjust to living inside, but she thinks Ebony would have a tougher time. Ebony is a lot like Whitey, very wary and unsure of their surroundings. But who can blame them? Whitey was an outside cat for nine years and Ebony has been an outside cat for at least five years. They had to be tough to survive. And my Mom would never separate Sugar Bear and Ebony. They would have to come inside as a pair. It’s so heartwarming to see them together in the evening, lying side by side. God only knows how they came to be together, but He must have been looking after them too.”

Whiskers kissed Talley once more and said, “Okay, enough of this worrisome talk. Let’s get ready for our fun-filled day with our family and furiends.” Talley smiled and said, “Tell your Mom everything will work out. Love and patience always triumphs.” Whiskers hugged Talley and mewed, “I love you so much Mrs. Whiskers!”

In the kitchen, Whitey and Orangie were preparing a light breakfast for the family. The girls knew there would be plenty of food to eat today at the Sport’s Day festivities. So this morning the girls prepared small vegetable egg white omelets with tomatoes, roasted peppers and fresh basil from their garden. Pearl sliced up some strawberries and bananas, mixed together with homemade granola. Angel Maggie and Callie were baking their famous Bacon CinnaBuns to take to the party and to enjoy this morning.

Flower and his sisters were chatting excitedly at the table while they sipped their hot chocolate. The kids wanted to challenge the adults to a game of badminton when they got to their furiend’s house for Sport’s Day. Flower said, “With my sisters and Bobby, Inky and Storm on our team, I think we might have a chance!” Whiskers ruffled the fur on his nephew’s head and said, “ I know you kids will be formidable opponents. I better make sure I take my vitamins today. I have a feeling this old body is going to get quite a workout today!”
Flower exclaimed, “Oh Uncle Whiskers! You’re not old! We promise not to tire you out.”
Talley smiled, taking Whisker’s paw and said, “Sit down grandpa and get something in your tummy. You’ll feel like a spring chicken in no time.” The kids all giggled, picturing their Uncle Whiskers as a spring chicken.

Flower chimed the dinner bell and the family sat down to another wonderful start to their day. They joined paws to say grace and give thanks for their good fortune. Whiskers said he wanted to add a special prayer for one of their furiends. He had received a message from Dame Dot and K. Tucker that their longtime doggie fursib, Shadow, was nearing the end of her journey here on earth. The family bowed their heads to pray for Shadow and her family.

Talley whispered to Whiskers, that she would ask Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie to take them to visit Dame Dot and her family today. Whiskers nodded and smiled, knowing the comforting angel dust his sisters brought would help out a lot.

Flower reminded his Mama that him and his sisters only had a half day of school today. Pearl smiled and said, “I didn’t forget son. Your Uncle Whiskers and Auntie Talley already said they would take you kids to school and pick you up when the bell rings. You kids should have just enough time to change into your play clothes and do your homework before we leave for Sport’s Day.” Flower and his sister smiled and high-pawed each other.

Raven and Ms. Murphy were still looking at various plans for the sailboats the family would be building in the next few months. K. Pete had suggested they build a flotilla of boats for the entire family and even some furiends. Everyone was excited at the prospect of exploring different rivers and bays. They all looked forward to keeping busy during the winter months, with sailboat adventures in their future.

It was time to get the kids to school. While Pearl gathered the kid’s school bags, Whiskers and Talley went outside to warm up the car and bring it around to front door to load up the kids. With the kids buckled in the car safely, Whiskers opened the passenger door for Talley, helping her inside and giving her a quick kiss. Callie came running outside. “Wait!” she meowed. “You forgot the kid’s snacks.” Whiskers hugged his sister and said, “Thanks sis. But where’s my snack?” Callie playfully slapped her brother and said, “We’ll all be eating soon enough. And you keep your paws out of the kid’s snack boxes.”

The kids waved goodbye to the family as they drove off. Whiskers said to Talley, “I hope they have some more music and dancing at the festivities today. I loved dancing with you yesterday. Maybe I should bring some Glenn Miller tunes with me.”
Flower chimed in, “I think dancing counts as a sport Uncle Whiskers!” Whiskers winked at Talley and said, “From the mouths of babes! I think your Aunt Talley and I will get a lot of practice in our choice of sport today!”

I love you sweet Talley. Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs, today and every day.

♥ 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.

❦ Happy Apple Dumpling Day ❦
Yummy in our tummies...& also reminds me of the pawsome movies "The Apple Dumpling Gang" (1975) & "The Apple Dumpling Gang Rides Again" (1979) that I've watched with mom & dad. Both of these movies were hilarious with Tim Conway & Don Knotts starring as the 'bad guys' that weren't really all that bad...MOL! Guess we'll be begging mom to bake some real apple dumplings while we watch them. Don't forget the mice cream on top mom! MOL!!

I saw a few comments about us being meowed about on FB yesterday because someone in our house had a birthday. It was mom & not AK Zaboo or Trixie so just wanted to clarify that & let everyone know that YES mom deleted her account! She won't go back either since they never delete bad groups/people that are promoting violence toward others, cruelty to animals, etc. Yes mom knows she can block them out but it's become so commonplace for them to update all the settings that it's not worth the time it takes to keep updating them. We'll only be here on CC, the Cat's Mews Room forum & doing occasional visits to YouPet so if you want to meow at us that's how to do it.

It's another very cool October-like day in our area but that helps us get in the mood for the 'Glory of Autumn' pawty we'll have at the Cat's Meow Resort & Event Center #271826 next Tuesday (August 23rd) for the entire day. I'll be dressed as a pumpkin, Fluffinella will be a grasshopper, Piglet & Sneakers will be sunflowers, Q Trixie is coming dressed as fallen leaves & Patches will be a scarecrow. Some other ideas in case you haven't come up with a fall costume yet are...autumn fairy, ears of corn, a combine, bale of straw, apples, hunter...or anything else related to the changing of the season. If you don't want to dress up that's okay too but please wear your most festive autumn colored outfits.
Well we've still got a lot of planning to do so will meow at you more soon.

Purrs of love,
Monkey, NICE Girls & Angels

Whiskers woke up feeling a slight chill in
the air, something he hadn’t felt in quite a while. He gently pulled the soft bed quilt over Talley’s shoulders, not wanting his beautiful girl to catch cold. Talley opened her eyes, kissing her husband good morning. She said, “It feels like winter is on its way.” Whiskers kissed Talley on her forehead and said, “I was just thinking the same thing. I think I’ll see if K. Pete wants to go with me to check the supplies in the shelters and check if any repairs might be needed.”
Talley smiled and said, “Don’t forget today is the sleepover at Ana’s house and the Sports Day is on Wednesday. I was thinking we might all go over today for a little bit, but I don’t think it would be a good idea to sleepover with the kid’s going to school the next day.”
Whiskers nodded and said, “Good idea sweetie. I know Flower, Tabitha, Liliana and Daisy would be heartbroken if we stayed the whole night without them. We’ll have fun visiting anyway. I know Angel Maggie and Callie are going to be preparing some snacks for the party. We can ask Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy if they can transport us over for a couple of hours and then bring us back home when it’s time for the kids to go to bed. I’m sure Ana, Sandy and the Angels will understand. Besides, I promised I’d play some table tennis with Flower. The last time we played, I thought I would be nice and let him win. What a fool I was to think that! That little guy had me playing as skillfully as I could just to keep the games interesting!”
Talley laughed and said, “That’s our talented nephew. He can excel at absolutely anything he sets his mind to.”
Whiskers kissed his lovely wife and said, “We better get showered and ready for our day. I promised Callie I would pick some oranges from the tree this morning, for some fresh squeezed juice.”

Callie was preparing Ricotta Pancakes and scrambled eggs with herbs. Angel Maggie had just finished cooking the Pork Sausages in a white wine sauce and she was putting the final touches on the small dishes of melon balls. Breakfast would be served soon. "I better get going and get some oranges for juice," Whiskers said as he grabbed a sack and ran outside. Talley got busy preparing the coffee and hot chocolate. In no time at all, breakfast was ready. Flower knew his cue when he saw his Aunties setting the table. He jumped up to grab the dinner bell from the China Cabinet drawer so he’d be ready. Callie nodded her head at her little nephew and everyone gathered around the table to say grace.

The main topic of conversation at the table this morning was of the sleepover and sport’s game day at Ana’s house.

Angel Maggie, Whitey, Orangie, Pearl and Callie were going to make some appetizers to take to the sleepover. The Rumaki was such a hit at their dinner party with Angel K. Malachi and his wife, they decided to make some for the party. The girls were also preparing deviled eggs and macaroni salad. Angel Maggie commented that their furiends always had a lot of food at their parties, but it never hurt to have too much food. Mitch suggested it might be cool enough for the girls to make some chili for the party. Angel Maggie clapped her paws and said, “Excellent idea. We’ll make one pot hot and spicy, and other pot mild, with lots of cheddar cheese and red onions.”
Flower looked concerned during the conversation, but didn’t want to say anything and be a bother. Whiskers could sense his little nephew’s concern, so he said, “We know the kids have school this week, so if it’s all right with Pearl, Talley and I thought we would just stay at the party for a couple of hours. That is if Angels Sylvie and Lucy have time in their schedules to take us on their magic carpet.” Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy nodded their heads with smiles on their pretty faces. Flower and the kittens looked hopefully at their Mama. Pearl finally smiled too and said, “It’s okay with me as long as the kids finish their homework first.”
Flower and his sisters clapped their paws, promising to do their homework AND extra credit.

Breakfast was delicious. Everyone pitched in with the cleaning while Pearl got the kids ready for school. Whiskers and Talley would walk the kids to school this morning, then meet K. Pete, Raven and Ms. Murphy at the shelters to see what was needed.

While Whiskers and Talley waited for the kids, Whiskers pulled a small jacket from the hall closet to drape over Talley’s shoulders. He said, “It’s still a little bit chilly. You know, the cool weather reminds me of our wedding day. Winter will always have wonderful memories for me. I love you sweetheart.”

Sending you soft kisses and hugs, my precious love.

A Dream For You
~~~~~
If I could dream
The dream I wanted too,
I would close my eyes,
And dream a dream for you.

I would give you all the world,
That you are deserving of,
And to you I would give
My everlasting love.

I would see to it,
That you were never sad.
And nothing in your life
Would ever happen bad.

I would wish for you,
All things would go your way,
And you would always be happy,
Each and every day.

In my dream
You would stay
Just as beautiful
As you are today.

Life for you would be as perfect
As the blueness of the sky,
And no one would ever hurt you,
Or ever make you cry.

I know it's just a dream,
But if dreams could come true,
I would close my eyes,
And dream a dream for you.

Thank you Talley
and the HRR for coming by to visit and leave well wishes for mom. I love to see all them Harley's coming up the street and the neighbors are just awed by them....

I want to thank you for your concern about my mom..she is much better now. She can eat and keep it down, and she can even drink liquids and keep it down, and mom only has a few more pills to take..it is so good to finally have mom back to her old self and feeling good. YAY!!!

We had a dreary day today, was supposed to be rainy, but we were dry, cloudy and cold with no wind. It only got in the 50's and at night we drop to the 40's...our heat kicks on at night, but mom turns it off during the day...too early for high gas bills yet.

We all spent the day in the house with mom and she was watching movies on LIFETIME all day..nothing better to do she says. She has to go to work tomorrow and then has 3 days off to be with us again.

Hope you have a pawsome evening!

Talley reached out her arm to snuggle
with her husband, but Whisker’s side of the bed was empty. Talley opened her eyes with a start, quickly looking around the room. She let out a sigh of relief when she saw Whiskers standing by the bedroom window. “What are you doing sweetheart?” she asked. Whiskers turned to smile at his beautiful wife and walked over to kiss her good morning. He said, “I was just checking outside to see if it was still raining. It looks like there is a break in the clouds. Do you feel like going for a run this morning, before breakfast? I need to work off that extra slice of apple pie I had last night. It was too delicious to resist. And I think I have some cobwebs in my head from that drink Josie Mae made for me. That moonshine sure was smooth, but now I’m paying the price! ”
Talley laughed as she jumped out bed. “I told you to be careful sweetheart. Josie Mae has quite a tolerance for moonshine. She is a lot fun at parties though, isn’t she?”
Whiskers smiled as he pulled on his running clothes and said, “She certainly is the life of any party. I think everyone had a wonderful time last night at our cookout. I know I did.”
As soon as they were dressed for their run, Whiskers pulled two light rain jackets from the closet. He said, “Just in case we get caught in a downpour. I’ll carry them in my back pack.” Talley nodded and said, “Let’s try to be quiet when we go downstairs. We don’t want to wake up the family or our guests this early.”

Whiskers nodded as the two kitties in love tiptoed downstairs. Whitey was setting the table when she saw Whiskers and Talley. Whitey whispered, “Where are you guys going? Orangie and I just started breakfast.”
Whiskers said, “We‘re going for a run sis. We’ll make it a short one and be back in time before everyone gets up.”
Whitey smiled and said, “You better come back in through the garage. It looks like rain to me out there and I don’t want you traipsing mud in the house.”

Whiskers nodded as him and Talley headed outside. It was still dark, so Whiskers pulled out a small flashlight from his backpack. Talley smiled and said, “My goodness sweetheart, you really did come prepared.”

With his light in one paw and his other paw tightly intertwined with Talley’s, the two kitties started to run. The air was slightly warm and smelled of rain, perfect for running. Whiskers held the flashlight to light their way as they went from a slow jog to a fast run. The ducks swimming in the lake all quacked a big hello to them as they passed by. Talley said, “This is perfect duck weather. They all sound so happy in the lake.” Whiskers was slightly out of breath when he said, “I think we better start heading back to the house sweetie. The sky is looking ominous and I think we’ll have to race with the rain clouds if we’re going to make it home without getting soaked.”

Talley grinned and said, “Okay, I’ll race you to the driveway!” Whiskers had to dig deep just to keep up with his athletic little bride. Talley ran like the wind, barely out of breath when they arrived home. Whiskers said, “you win my love and it looks like we beat the rain too. Here it comes!” Just as they opened the garage door, thunder rolled overhead and a deluge of raindrops came down. Talley was jumping and down excitedly. ”We did it sweetheart! We both won!”

Orangie opened the door to the house, standing there with dry towels. Whiskers said, “We didn’t even get a single drop on us Orangie.” Orangie smiled and said, “Well you two better go upstairs and get ready. Pete, Raven and Ms. Murphy are having coffee already at the table. They’re checking the weather report for Angel K. Malachi and Princess Lady Ana’s trip home.”

Whiskers nodded and told Talley, “I’ll be right up sweetheart. Get the shower going for us and I’ll meet you there.” Talley ran inside. Whiskers took out the raincoat from his backpack, grabbed some small garden scissors from the workbench and ran back outside. He had seen a large patch of white daisies blooming in the yard. Whiskers quickly snipped some flowers for Talley, gathering a large bouquet and then quickly ran back. Orangie was waiting for him with the dry towels and said, “Now you’re going to need these brother. Give me the flowers and I’ll put them in a vase for you.” Whiskers took the dry towels and wiped himself down. He said, “Thanks Orangie. Would you please put the flowers in our room so I can surprise Talley?” Orangie smiled and said, “Of course I will brother. I always like to see you treat Talley with the love she so very much deserves.” Whiskers kissed Orangie on the cheek and ran upstairs to his waiting wife.

Whiskers stepped into the shower with Talley, soaping up her tiny back with suds. Talley reciprocated and said to Whiskers, “How come you smell like wet fur? I thought we beat the rain.” Whiskers just smiled and kissed his beautiful wife. After a quick towel dry, Talley came out to get dressed when she saw the gorgeous bouquet of white daisies. She looked perplexed and said, “Where did this come from? The flowers are my favorite!” Whiskers pulled Talley into his arms, giving her a deep kiss and said, “They’re from your most devoted admirer. That’s why I smelled like a wet cat. I got caught in the rain picking flowers for you sweetie.”
“Oh Whiskers, I love you,” Talley mewed.

By the time Whiskers and Talley came to the table, everyone was seated, enjoying coffee and hot chocolate. Angel Malachi and Ana looked refreshed and happy. K. Pete and Malachi were going over the weather report, planning the flight strategy for Malachi’s trip back home. They were going to hit some bumpy weather on the way, but K. Pete didn’t think it was anything Malachi couldn’t handle.

While they waited for breakfast, the conversation at the table was of the wonderful cookout last night with so many great furiends. Princess Lady Ana asked Talley for her apple pie recipe. She said she would love to make it for her husband. Angel Malachi smiled, nodding his head and rubbing his tummy.

Pearl poked her head out from the kitchen, signaling to Flower it was time to eat. Flower hopped up and proudly rang the dinner bell. Everyone sat down to join paws and say grace. K. Pete added a special prayer for Angel K. Malachi and his wife to have safe trip home.

Whitey and Orangie went to the kitchen and came back carrying warming dishes filled with scrambled eggs, fresh country potatoes, applewood smoked bacon, turkey sausage patties, buttermilk biscuits and petite lemon custard croissants. There were uummms all around the table. As they enjoyed their meal together, Whiskers said, “I thought Talley and I would drive the kids to school today. If you like, Angel Malachi, you and Princess Ana can ride with us and then we’ll take you both down to the airfield.” Angel K. Malachi smiled and said, “That sounds great my furiend. Ana and I are packed and ready to go.”
Callie chimed in, “Angel Maggie and I prepared some tuna salad sandwiches for your trip home. Talley even baked an extra apple pie yesterday to take with you.”
“Spendid!” Angel Malachi replied.

The kids were excited they would get to say goodbye to their Uncle Malachi and Auntie Ana. After breakfast, Pearl busied herself gathering the kids school packs, while K. Pete and Mitch packed up their furiends bags into the car, along with the food the girls had prepared. Angel K. Malachi and his wife said their goodbyes and thank yous to the family, promising to come back soon. Flower and the kittens climbed into the back seat, wanting to be close to Angel Malachi and Princess Ana. Whiskers looked at his furiends to make sure it was okay. Angel Malachi and Ana smiled, nodding their heads. Whiskers helped Talley into the front seat, kissing her paw before they drove down the driveway, everyone waving goodbye as they left.

By the time they got to the schoolyard, it was raining. Whiskers and Angel Malachi got out the umbrellas and walked the kids up to the school door. Flower made his Uncle Malachi promise to come back, giving him a big hug goodbye. As they drove off to the airfield, Angel K. Malachi squeezed his wife’s paw and said to Whiskers, “We sure are a couple of the luckiest Toms in the world, aren’t we?” Whiskers looked over at Talley, sighing and said, “We certainly are my furiend.”

Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs my precious Talley.

She’s My Everything
~~~~~
She's my morning,
She's my favourite song to sing,
She's the poems that I write,
She's my everything

She's my sparkle,
She's my shine,
She's the only thing,
I want to call mine

She's my voice,
She's my ears,
And being without her,
Is one of my biggest fears

She's the reason I dream,
She's the reason I follow my heart,
She's the reason why,
I wanted this relationship to start

She's my afternoon,
She's my thoughts all day,
She's the reason why,
I say the sweet things I say

She's my heart,
She's the reason I'm in love,
She's the reason why,
I thank god above

She's my everyday,
She's my everynight,
And I would never give up on her,
Not without a fight

She's my morning,
She's my favourite song to sing,
She's the poems that I write,
She's my everything.

Whiskers and Talley lay snuggled
in each other’s arms, ready to greet another day together. Whiskers kissed Talley softly on her cheek and said, “I’m looking forward to our cookout today with Angel K. Malachi and Princess Lady Ana. Hopefully we’ll get a break from the rain today.”
Talley smiled and kissed her husband. She said, “Have you heard from your pawrents?” Whiskers nodded and said, “Yes, my Mom and Dad said to thank all of you for your heartfelt condolences. My Mom said the memorial service for their friend Lori was sad, but very beautiful. Lori had a lot of friends that came to pay their respects. My Mom is still in a blue fog today, so her and Dad went for a long walk this morning after church and that helped a little.”

Whiskers smiled and said, “I smell coffee brewing downstairs. Let’s get ready so we can go be with our family. I know seeing the kids always cheers me up.” Talley hugged her beloved husband.

Whitey and Orangie were making waffles this morning and it smelled delicious downstairs. Flower, Tabitha, Liliana and Daisy ran to greet their Uncle Whiskers and Aunt Talley with big hugs. Callie had made some power shakes for everyone this morning, using fresh blueberries from their garden. Callie set the shakes at the table and Pearl brought coffee and hot chocolate for everyone.

Flower jumped up to ring the mealtime bell, bringing a smile to Whisker’s face. The family joined paws to say grace and say an extra prayer for Whisker’s Mom and Dad’s friend Lori, who was in Heaven now.

Whiskers could see outside the front window, there was a heavy drizzle falling. After enjoying a wonderful breakfast, the family decided they would all drive to the Castle Chapel for Sunday services instead of walking like they normally did.

Whiskers and Talley volunteered to clear the table and do the dishes before they all left. Once they were alone, Whiskers took Talley in his arms and said, “I’m sorry I’m a little quiet today my love. It’s not because of you. I think I’m just feeling some of the sadness my pawrents are feeling right now.” Talley nodded, understanding completely. She gave Whiskers a big hug and mewed, “I’m here for you sweetheart. Always and furever.”

Sending you soft kisses and hugs, my precious Talley.

To My Wonderful Wife Talley
~~~~~
How do I begin to tell you how lucky I am
to have you in my life?
I'll start by saying what a gift you gave me
the day you became my wife.

You're my best friend in the good times
and my rock in times of sorrow.
You're the reason for sweet yesterdays
and my promise for tomorrow.

I never thought I could feel this loved
until you became my wife.
You made this year and every year
the best one of my life.

Hi Talley and Hairballz riders!
Thanks so much for wishing me on my adoptiversary. Mom forgot about it till you all remembered! What a thrill it was to see the Hairballz riders at my door! I’ll never forget it. All the people and dogs on the road must have stared as you rode past!
And all these wonderful treats and gifts!
Mom forgot because she has these other kitties to look after. Unlike me, they aren’t very good at using their litter boxes!
Sweetie of course is upstairs with her own special enclosure, leading out of Mom’s bedroom. The storeroom downstairs with a long passage at the side of the house, has been made into another enclosure to keep the other kitties safe. There is Mitzi, Muffin and her two kitties and Nuffin. Mom is hoping to find homes for the two little ones; then she will try and find a vet to sterilise Muffin. Mitzi will probably join me inside. She already spends the day in. We aren’t fighting but I don’t like her. A real little pest. Mom is not sure what to do with Nuffin. He goes for a walk and then comes running back to sit in his box in the passage.
Mom went to see the animal shelter in the city today. It is called Raahat and she says it is quite a good one. A horse, a cow, a three legged mule, an injured donkey, a cow, a paralysed abandoned dog and lots more dogs were there. The shelter also catches, sterilises and releases the street dogs, at least whenever it can. That is according to the official policy here for controlling the population of street animals.
Love and a vote.
We read the lovely story of how you were found and adopted!Makes one believe in miracles.

Minty.

Come visit me, Sweetie & Minty.

Hi Talley!
I don't know why, but I grew suddenly, even though I'm 4 years old! My skin has always been loose and baggy and suddenly I filled it up. But I have to be careful or I'll turn into a round kitty ball! Of course we all cherish you and your fursibs and daddy. He is a good friend, mama says! So we make him an uncle, just like all our aunties! I will like to come to hockey with you, if mama can get time. Sometimes Baba is very demanding. The best thing is that mama will come and spend the night with us on Monday. we love long visits! I will pounce her shoes and cuddle her! Purrs - Kuzi

On the Catpaign Trail...Day 13
We were away for 5 weeks and came home to find Josie has had another litter. Little black dude has grown and is a boy. They are in the field behind the neighbor's house. Mom put the 2 kittens in the feral quarters. Josie is watching all this. Day breaks with a full fledged Nor'Easter blowing and cold rain pouring. Mom goes out to check on the kittens and they are gone! Frantically she searches the lot and finds them back in the open field, cold, wet, eyes crusted shut and sick. She loaded all kittens up and headed for the vet. To be Continued....
Thanks for the basket, it looks delish! Mimi

Oh Yes Talley!
I do remember the fun we had exploring and chasing in the caverns. Maybe they thought we were ghosts? Well, that's how I remembers it! Mama says I have a 'magination. I am feeling good and enjoying myself with fellow tiny cat Quincy. Bennie still plays for VFP! I think the rest of us are off our teams, but mama said she'll bring us to watch when she can. I'd love to visit you. Tiny cats rule! Purrs - Kuzi

Whiskers had awakened before Talley,
so he lay beside his beautiful wife very quietly, trying not to wake her. Whiskers knew she had to be tired from her busy day yesterday leading the Hairballz Rainbow Riders. Whiskers couldn’t resist reaching out his paw to smooth the soft fur on his lovely wife’s cheek. The mere sight of his beautiful Talley in the morning, always took his breath away and brought tears of happiness to his eyes. When Talley opened her eyes, she smiled upon seeing her husband staring at her. Talley saw the tears in his eyes, furrowed her brow and asked, “What’s wrong my love?” Whiskers shook his head, smiling and said, “Nothing is wrong sweetheart. As a matter of fact, everything is wonderful and I’m so very blessed to have you as my wife.”

Whiskers said, “Talley my precious love, my meow is going to be silent tomorrow. A good friend my Dad and Uncle grew up with, passed away last week after a short battle with cancer. Her name was Lori. They grew up together, all the way from kindergarten to high school. Lori was cremated and her family is having a private memorial service on a big yacht in the San Francisco Bay to scatter her ashes at sea. My Dad is bringing his electric keyboard to play music on the boat. Lori was a wonderful singer in high school and her and my Dad used to be in a band together. Anyway, my pawrents will be gone on Saturday, but you know I’ll be with you in spirit.”
Talley nodded her head sadly and said, “I’m sorry to hear that my love. It’s never easy to say goodbye to those you love. Give your pawrents my love and condolences.” Whiskers kissed Talley and said, “Thank you sweetheart. Now I guess we better you get you up and ready for another wonderful goodwill tour with the Rainbow Riders. After we shower, I’ll go out to the garage to check your bike. I want my precious girl to be safe while she’s out spreading cheer.”

On his way downstairs, Whiskers couldn’t resist stopping to poke his head into the kitchen. Callie smiled when she saw her brother and said, “Yes Whiskers, you smell apples baking, only it’s not Talley’s apple pie, so stop drooling! But it’s a close second. Angel Maggie and I are baking an apple cinnamon coffee cake this morning. Whitey and Orangie are making Scramble Egg Burritos with cheddar cheese, some fresh cilantro and cherry tomatoes from our garden and a tasty, but mild chunky salsa. But breakfast won’t be ready for another fifteen minutes.” Whiskers grinned sheepishly and said, “I was just on my way to get Talley’s motorcycle ready for her ride today. But the minute I smelled apples, my tummy took over and had to check it out. Apple cinnamon coffee cake sounds delicious girls!”

Flower and the kittens had just come to the table with their Mama, looking fresh and ready for another day at school. Flower had overhead his Uncle Whiskers talking and asked, “Do you need some help preflighting Auntie Talley’s Electra Glide? I can help Uncle Whiskers.” Whiskers looked over at Pearl who was smiling and already nodding her head. Whiskers said, “Thanks Flower. I can always use an expert paw.” Flower was all smiles as he kissed his Mama and ran out the door with his Uncle.

Whiskers and his little nephew checked the tire pressures and oil and fuel levels. Flower held the checklist in his paws, making sure they didn’t miss a thing. Whiskers told Flower the back tire needed two pounds of air added. Whiskers helped Flower pull the air hose from the garden reel, showing him how to add just the right amount needed. After a thorough preflight, Flower took a soft shop rag from the workbench and carefully wiped down the bike until it was gleaming. Soon the two boys were finished, ready for breakfast. Whiskers gave his nephew a big hug, thanking him for a job well done.

Whitey was just getting ready to call the boys to breakfast when they came to the table. Whitey said to Flower, “It’s time to ring the breakfast bell sweetie.” Flower jumped to grab the triangular bell, asking his Aunt Whitey, “What are we having Auntie Whitey? It smells delicious.” Whitey smiled and said, “Ring the bell little guy and you’ll find out.”

The family heard the bell and hurried over to the table. They joined paws to say grace and give thanks for another joyous meal together. Whiskers took a bite of his burrito, commenting on how delicious it tasted. Everyone complimented the chefs on the scrumptious coffee cake too. As they all enjoyed their meal, Tabitha said, “We’re having a bake sale at school today. The money we make will go to help take care of the 9/11 doggie heroes. Mama helped me, Liliana and Daisy bake some oatmeal cookies to sell and Auntie’s Angel Maggie and Callie made us apple cinnamon muffins to take.” Flower raised his paw and said, “I made some charcoal drawings of some of the doggies from pictures I found on the internet. I’m going to sell those too!” Talley said, “That’s wonderful kids!” Talley looked at her family and said, “Maybe when I get back from my tour with the Hairballs Riders, we can all go to the bake sale to help out.” Flower chimed in, “Oh Aunt Talley, we won’t need help selling, but we sure could use the customers! I’m going to bring some of my money to spend too. It’s for a good cause, you know.”

Everyone smiled proudly at the kindhearted and charitable kids. Whiskers said, “I’ll make sure I come with an empty tummy and full wallet. And I think a few of your drawings Flower, will look prefect hanging in the den.” Flower and the kittens were beaming. Raven, Ms. Murphy, K. Pete, Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy said they would be finished up with their activities for the day by the afternoon and would love to come to the bake sale. Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie said they would be there too after their goodwill rounds.

Callie told Whiskers, “The girls and I have packed quite a few boxes of goodies for the kids to take. I think you might need to drive them to school today.” Whiskers replied, “No problem at all.” Mitch said, “I’ll ride with you to school and help carry everything inside. And just to make sure you don’t eat any of the goods!” Whiskers smiled and told the kids, “You have my word. Nothing will pass my lips until the bake sale.”

After breakfast, Pearl helped the kids gather their school bags, while Callie and Angel Maggie loaded the car with the baked goods. K. Pete helped Flower load his carefully wrapped drawings into the back trunk.

Whiskers walked Talley out to the garage, starting up her bike while she pulled on her riding leathers. Talley gave her husband a hug and a kiss and told him she would be back before he could even miss her. Whiskers shook his head and said, “That’s not possible. I start missing you as soon as you and your bike turn to leave.” Talley squeezed Whisker’s paw and blew him a kiss as she drove off.

Whiskers said a quick prayer for his Talley’s safe return and then walked to the Audi where the kids were all loaded inside, chatting away happily, eager to start their day. Mitch was driving, so Whiskers jumped in the passenger seat and another wonderful day was underway.

I love you sweet Talley. Sending you soft kisses and loving hugs.

Love Is The Greatest ♥
~~~~~
To love is to have someone special
One who you can always depend
To be there through the years
Sharing laughter and tears
As a partner, a lover, a friend.

To love is to make special memories
Of moments you love to recall
Of all the good things
That sharing life brings
Love is the greatest of all.

Talley and Whiskers were up early so Talley
could get going on her goodwill tour leading the Hairballz Rainbow Riders. Whiskers watched his beautiful wife as she finished blowing drying her fur. He had just finished typing into his laptop when Talley asked him what he was working on. Whiskers smiled, closing his computer and said, “I haven’t been able to stop to thinking about the Golden Kitty and Pirates escapade. The story about the heroics your Dad and Uncle Vic underwent during the war was astounding and unimaginable. I decided to write it all down on my computer to share the stories of bravery with our furiends. I know Flower and the kittens would love to hear it too, but I thought I should first run in by Pearl, in case it was a little too graphic for kids.”
Talley listened, as she was getting dressed and said, “I think it would be a wonderful history lesson for them, but you’re right in asking Pearl first. I do believe my brother has read the story of the Golden Kitty to the kids, but I know they never tire of hearing it.” Whiskers nodded and said, “I know I don’t. When I think of all the adventures I’ve experienced with this family, it boggles my mind.”

Whiskers continued, “My Mom tells us stories sometimes about our grandpa when he fought in the Korean War. Grandpa was a Marine who fought at the Chosin Reservoir and was one of the proud survivors known as the Chosin Few. GP didn’t like to talk about his experiences from that battle, but as he got older, my Mom persuaded him to talk about it more. GP had never been awarded for his efforts in the war, until my Mom pursued it on her own with the VA. My Mom surprised him one day with a trip to the Marine’s Memorial Club & Hotel in San Francisco, where a handful of the Chosin Few Marines were finally honored properly. My Mom was always very proud to be the daughter of a Marine and she was glad she was able to show GP just how much, before he passed away. My Mom even made a trip to South Korea to learn first hand about the country. Of course she wasn’t able to visit North Korea where GP had fought, but she came back with whole new respect and understanding of what her Dad must have gone through. I’m sorry my fursibs and I never got to meet GP, but we feel like we know him through our Mom.”

Talley kissed her beloved husband and mewed, “It’s nice to have a wonderful family you can be proud of and I think it’s important to always pass down the stories we are fortunate enough to hear from them.” Whiskers gave Talley a big bear hug and said, “Come on sweetheart. The sooner we get started on our day, the sooner we’ll be back together.”

Whitey and Orangie were busy in the kitchen preparing Crustless Mini-Quiches. Whitey liked how simple the dish was to make and yet it was delicious and high in protein, something she knew her active family could use. Orangie was making yogurt cups with fresh fruit on the bottom, drizzled with honey, berry jam and crushed walnuts. She worked on the yogurt cups carefully so that when her family dug their spoons into the bottom, it would come up with a bite of everything. Pearl was in charge of the coffee and this morning she was blending a delicious Caramel Macchiato Espresso with steamed milk, caramel and vanilla and hot Dutch chocolate with whipped cream and English toffee sprinkles for the kids. The kitchen was filled with tantalizing aromas.

Since today was the anniversary of the tragic event on September 11, 2001, the family joined paws to say grace and pray. Whiskers bowed his head to lead the prayer, gently squeezing Talley’s in his.

“Loving God, help us to realize that true peacemaking can only become a reality in our world today if it is first a matter in our hearts. September 11 reminded us that our country has been blessed with tremendous resources that we must use wisely in the service of others, both within our own borders and around the world.

We ask for the gifts of civility and charity so that we can treat others with respect and love.
We ask for the gifts of faith and hope to strengthen our spirits by placing our trust in You rather than ourselves.
We ask for the gifts of humility and kindness so that we may put the needs and interests of others ahead of our own.
We ask for the gifts of patience and perseverance to endure the long struggle for justice.
We ask for all of this through Christ our Lord. Amen.”

It would be a solemn day today. Flower lightened the mood at the table by telling his family him and his sisters had been working on a book report about the many hero dogs of 9/11.” Flower said, “Did you know there were more than 300 hero dogs who searched and rescued many of the victims. It made my sisters and I appreciate our doggie furiends a lot more!” Everyone smiled at the effervescent little skunk. Whiskers said, “We’d like to hear your report tonight. I’m sure your classmates will appreciate hearing all about the hero dogs.”

K. Pete smiled and said, “When everyone gets home from their busy day today, let’s all go down to the Castle Chapel to pray and light candles to express our sympathy and support.” Everyone agreed, as they finished their breakfast in a respectful silence.

Whitey and Orangie insisted on clearing the table, while Callie and Angel Maggie helped Pearl get the kids ready for school. Whiskers followed Talley to the garage to help her into her leathers and warm up her bike. Whiskers had preflighted her Harley Electra Glide before breakfast, so he just had a few final checks to make, before starting up her bike that was humming like a charm.

Whiskers watched as Talley got onto her bike, stepping up to kiss his beautiful wife before she slipped her helmet on. Whiskers said, “I’m not going to tell you to hurry back because you know I’ll be waiting here for you forever, if need be. I’ll fix some soup and sandwiches for us to eat lunch out by the pool when you return.” Talley blew Whiskers a kiss as she rode down the hill. Whiskers watched his kitty love until she was gone from his sight. He asked God and St. Francis to look after her and then went back inside, hoping it wasn’t too late to walk the kids to school. Pearl looked at the clock and said, “We might have to drive the kids to school today.”
Whiskers looked at his pocket watch and shook his head. He told Flower, “Let’s get you and the girls into the Red Flyer wagon. Uncle Whiskers is going to run like the wind and chauffeur his nieces and nephew to school!” Flower and the kittens jumped up and down excitedly, climbing into the wagon with their backpacks. Whiskers made sure they were secure and they took off down the driveway, all waving to their Momma and Mitch who were watching from the front door. Mitch gave Pearl a soft kiss on her on her cheek and said, “We’re the luckiest cats in the world to be a part of this family.” Pearl nodded, letting out a happy sigh.

Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs my beloved Talley.

Lean On Me
~~~~~
The world is very cruel and full
of pains, but life is very beautiful
only if we have someone
trustworthy to rely on. Put your
trust in me, believe in faith and
let me be the shadow that casts
away your fear, let me be the
shoulder that carries your burden
and let me be the pillar that guides
you and lean on me when
you are not strong.

Hi Talley!
Look, its me, Kuzi! I have grown into my skin at last and weight over 6 pounds! Quincy and I are about the same size, but I hang with Misty more. We share noms. Oh, I wish her page worked! Well, I am still a happy and playful kitten girl, even though I am 4. Mama stays with Baba and visits us when she can. Every day she commutes across town to feed us. When someone can stay with Baba she comes and plays with us! It's fall and I want to romp! Come explore the cupboards with me? Purrs - Kuzi

On the Catpaign Trail...Day11
We had a nice room. Kitchenette, laundry, BIG shower with room for my litter. I needed toys. Mine were all smoky and yucky. Mom emailed State Farm with a photo and they gave her the go ahead to replace my toys. We went to Petco and got me bunches of neat things. Mom took me and everybody said how pretty I was. I already know that and I don't like shopping! Wanted to hurry home and open the toys. I was by myself a lot, because Mom had to keep an eye on the workers. She was afraid they would use cleaning chemicals that were bad for me. To be continued.....
