Talley COTD 01/02/2009

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: 7 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 held his beautiful wife tightly in his
arms this morning. The sun was just beginning to peek through the shutters in their room. Whiskers sighed sadly. Uncle Buddy Budd was an Angel in Heaven now. He knew the CC Kingdom would be mourning the loss of their dear furiend, but he also knew it was important to keep going and spread the goodwill that defined Uncle Buddy Budd’s life while he was here on Earth with us. Whiskers gently smoothed the soft fur on Talley’s cheek. It tore him apart to see his beloved wife filled with grief. He vowed to do everything he possibly could to keep her strong. They had to remember that Angel Uncle Buddy Budd was in a better place now with no more pain or fear from being ill. He was a kitten once again, surrounded by all the Angels that had gone before him. It had to have been a joyous reunion. Angel Lucy, Angel Sylvie and Angel Maggie had reassured the family that Angel Uncle Buddy Budd was indeed met with a wondrous welcome home.

Talley opened her lovely green eyes, looking at her husband, wishing for a brief moment that this had been a dreadful nightmare. But Talley could see the sadness in Whisker’s eyes and she knew it was indeed all true. Talley clung to her strong husband’s warm body. Whiskers said softly, “Good morning my love. I wish I could wave a magic wand and make everything better, but alas, I’m just a common cat who can only offer his prayers and undying love and furiendship to those around me. I was thinking about the Memorial Day Airshow that K. Pete is planning for tomorrow. I was wondering if he has us flying a Missing Man formation? We can dedicate it to our dear furiend Angel Uncle Buddy Budd and have ‘Amazing Grace’ played in the background.” Talley nodded and mewed, ‘That would be nice my love and maybe you could say a few words in Uncle Buddy Budd’s honor - something hopeful - something that will convey the hope and goodwill that Angel Uncle Buddy Budd began with his messages to us during the month of May.”

Whiskers nodded deep in thought. He said, “I’ll need to check with some of the CC CMR kitties first. I haven’t heard if Angel Uncle Buddy Budd’s family will want to continue his catpaign for CC King. I know the CC Empire wants our dear furiend to be King, but we have to respect his family’s wishes. Grief is difficult to handle for so many of our families and everyone handles it differently. I know my Mom would be inclined to deal with her sorrow by herself. That’s just the way she is. Let’s see how the day shapes up.”

Talley’s eyes began to tear up when she said, “Angel Lucy said her and Angels’ Maggie and Sylvie will be here this morning to help break the sad news to the kids. I’m not sure how much more bad news our babies can take.” Whiskers smiled and said, “Oh I think our kids are a lot stronger than we imagine. Knowing Flower, Ralph, Timothy and the girls, they’ll want to make something to commemorate Angel Uncle Buddy Budd’s life.”

Whiskers kissed Talley once more before mewing, “Let’s take a shower and get ready for another blessed day together. Did I tell you yet how much I love and adore you?” Talley smiled and gave her beloved Whiskers a deep kiss.

Callie and Angel Maggie were sitting at the dining room table, sipping coffee when Whiskers and Talley joined them. Callie smiled and said, “Whitey and Orangie will be here in a few minutes. We’re all going to have breakfast at K. Pete’s house this morning. Mom and Dad are at church right now. We thought we go to the later service. We need to speak with the kids first.”
Whiskers nodded sadly, pouring a cup of coffee for him and Talley. He said, “How are you feeling sister?”
Callie smiled and said, “Well, Mom gave me my medicine before they left. I can’t say I’m too happy about another 10 days of that awful stuff, but Angel Maggie put it in perspective for me. If I want to stay healthy, I have to do what is best for me. Hopefully Mom and the vet know what their doing!”

Whiskers nodded and said, “I know Mom is very worried. I even overheard her talking with Dad about getting a second opinion, but Dad poo-pooed that idea. He seems to have absolute trust in Dr. Natt. Talley and I do too. We believe she is doing what she thinks is best for you at this point.”

Just then, Whitey and Orangie joined the family. Both kitties looked as if they had been crying all night. Whiskers hugged his sisters and said, “Lets go to K. Pete’s house. I know it won’t be easy to break the news to the kids about Angel Uncle Buddy Budd, but at least we’ll all be together. That’s the most important thing right now.”

Angel Maggie looked at her watch and exclaimed, “Oh my, I put some Bacon Cinnabuns in the oven before I left. We better shake our tails and get back home!”
Callie laughed and said, “I’m sure Pearl and the girls are watching the oven. If anything, Flower will smell the pastries when they’re ready.”
Whiskers grinned and said, “I know I would!”

Talley smiled, hopeful her family would get through all this grief because they had each other. She squeezed Whisker’s paw and off they went.

Flower, Ralph, Timothy and their sisters were out front riding their bicycles, being careful to stay in front of their house. Whiskers could see how happy the kids looked and he wished he wasn’t the bearer of sad news. Sensing how her husband was feeling, Talley gave him a soft hug and said, ‘The kids need to hear the news from us sweetheart. Don’t worry, we’re all together.”
Whiskers nodded, delighted when Flower, Tabitha, Daisy and Liliana jumped into his arms.

Inside the house, wonderful aromas of Bacon Cinnabuns filled the air. The Angels were seated at the table with their brother K. Pete. Raven and Ms. Murphy came from the backyard with Bumper and Lisa, all carrying huge baskets filled with fresh fruits and vegetables. Pearl came from the kitchen and said, “I hope you brought your appetites. We’re having Florentine Omelets this morning, stuffed with fresh spinach and feta cheese. Have a seat and Annabella will serve up some coffee and hot chocolate.”

Whiskers nodded, pulling up a chair for his lovely wife. Whiskers asked Ms. Murphy, “Any news about Smudge?” Ms. Murphy shook her head sadly, but then smiled and said, “Not yet Whiskers, but we haven’t given up hope!” Whiskers gave his pretty sister a warm, encouraging hug.

Pearl had the boys ring the breakfast chime and everyone joined paws to say grace. After a special prayer was said for all their furiends in need, Whiskers cleared his throat and said, “Kids, I have some sad news about our dear furiend Uncle Buddy Budd. Uncle Buddy Budd became an Angel yesterday. His earthly body gave out on him, but I have it on good authority (Whiskers smiled at his Angel sisters) that he is doing just fine in Heaven. He has no more pain and he almost feels like a kitten again. Knowing Uncle Buddy Budd, he’ll be using his Angel wings like a pro in no time at all.”

There was silence at the table. Flower looked at his Uncle Whiskers and said, with tears in his eyes, “Will Uncle Buddy Budd still be our King next month? We’ve all been looking forward to helping him out during his reign.” Flower looked at his Angel sisters and asked, “Is Uncle Buddy Budd happy now?”

Angels’ Lucy, Sylvie and Maggie flew over to the kids and said, “You will all be thrilled to see how wonderful our furiend looks. Heaven suits Angel Uncle Buddy Budd quite well. And as our future CC King, he is quite the celebrity in Heaven. He has been welcomed with a tremendous amount of hoop-la! The only sad part about all of this, is how very much his family and furiends on earth miss him. So we all have to work hard to comfort them and try to put smiles on their faces. Angel Uncle Buddy Budd hasn’t gone away furever. He just has a new home with us.”

The kids all smiled, loving to hear how happy their future King was doing. They knew living with Angels’ Sylvie, Lucy-Fur and Maggie, had to be the absolute best! Whiskers felt tears welling up in his eyes. The kids and his Angel sisters were incredible! He instinctively pulled Talley into his arms for a hug, thanking God for his precious family.

Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs, my darling Tallulah.

Keeper Of My Dreams
When you're not here to share my days and nights
My life is so incomplete
For you are my heart, my soul
The ‘oneness’ I had known to seek

Without you I merely exist from day to day
With you I know that I will find
All that I have been searching for
My completeness, my eternal peace of mind

You are the keeper of my dreams
The kitty who holds my heart in her paws
The one I want to spend my life with
The one with whom I will always stand

Stand beside through thick and thin
Through all that life will throw our way
Knowing that this special love we share
Will guide us, each and every day

This journey was started long ago
Before this time and place
The journey of completeness
As two hearts and souls embrace

Furever is what I want with you
For the search is at an end
Our hearts have found each other
As lovers, as soul-mates, as furiends.

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
I didn’t want you to worry sweetheart, but I will be late with my love blog to you. My Mom, Callie and even Dad, had to go back to the vet this morning. Callie’s urine test still showed some blood, so the vet gave her another penicillin injection and has prescribed another 10 day dose of the same antibiotic. If after 10 days Callie still has traces of blood in her urine, then the vet will do x-rays. Callie had bladder crystals and stones many years ago, so we’re hoping that is not happening again. Callie has been on prescription food ever since she had that scary bladder surgery and Dad told the vet, Callie is no spring chicken anymore. The bladder surgery was quite tough on her! For a day there, we almost thought she was going to cross the Rainbow Bridge. But she fought hard and recovered nicely.

So another 10 days of liquid meds for Callie and thankfully tomorrow is my last dose. I guess that means I’m next for another urine test! I would never mention any of this awful stuff in our love stories! I’ll be meowing at you soon my love.!

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my beautiful Talley.

The barbeque at Whisker’s house last night
had been a big hit with the family. Even though Whisker’s Dad wasn’t quite as great a chef as Angel Maggie and K. Pete when it came to barbeques, everyone enjoyed the food and company immensely. They all had a wonderful time sightseeing in San Francisco, working up hearty appetites which delighted Whisker’s Dad Joe.

Whiskers felt Talley stir in his arms, opening her beautiful green eyes and giving him a welcome kiss good morning. Talley mewed, “Good morning sweetheart. Have we heard any news yet about our future King Uncle Buddy Budd?”
Whiskers had checked his phone earlier. He shook his head and said, “I haven’t heard anything yet my love. My Dad always says, no news is good news, although I’ve learned that is not always true. Either way, I like to think of what Angel Maggie said to us, ‘Our bodies wear out, but our souls are forever.’ From now on, whenever I get sad about someone I love becoming an Angel, I’m going to repeat Angel Maggie’s words over and over again in my mind. It will help keep my faith strong.” Talley nodded sadly and mewed, “My sister has always been wise beyond her years. I’ve always been able to count on her words to lift my spirits.”

Whiskers could hear the water running in the kitchen. He said to Talley, “My sister Callie must be up early. Mom is taking her to the vet this morning for a follow-up test to make sure her antibiotics did their job. Knowing my Mom, she’ll probably be staying with Callie until she gives the vet a urine sample.”
Talley smiled and said, “Angel Maggie is going to go with them. That might make it easier for Callie to relax.”
Whiskers nodded and said, “I know having Angel Maggie with her to hold her paw will mean the world to Callie. Those two may not be blood sisters, but Callie loves her like a sister and best furiend.”

Talley smiled as she got up to put her robe on. “Let’s go help Callie with the coffee. Maybe she’ll feel up having a power shake this morning. I know she must be nervous, but it might help to get something in her tummy. Who isn’t nervous with a trip to the vet looming?”
Whiskers nodded, silently thinking of his upcoming trips to the vet. But he considered himself fortunate when so many of his furiends and their families were suffering so much more. He instinctively pulled Talley into his arms, giving her a deep kiss and feeling truly blessed.

Whiskers and Talley felt refreshed after their warm shower together. Hurrying downstairs, they were happily surprised to see Angel Maggie had already arrived. Callie and her beloved sister were busy in the kitchen fixing coffee and fresh fruit smoothies in the blender. Whiskers could tell immediately that the mere presence of Angel Maggie had Callie in a calm and even somewhat happy mood. Whiskers and Talley greeted their sisters, asking how they could help. Callie smiled and said, “No help necessary. You could check to see if Whitey and Orangie are awake. I’m making a fruit smoothie for them too. Whiskers said, “Be right back. Talley my love, could you pour me a cup of that delicious smelling coffee? I’ll check to make sure Mom is almost ready to go too.” Talley nodded happily as she began to set the table.

Once everyone was at the table, they joined paws to say grace and a prayer for Uncle Buddy Budd, Smudge and all their furiends that were in need of prayer today.

Whiskers sipped his smoothie, imagining he could feel the vitamins pulsing through his body, making him strong and healthy. He looked at Callie and said, “Are you sure you wouldn’t like me and Talley to accompany you to the vet? We certainly don’t mind.”
Callie smiled, squeezing Angel Maggie’s paw in hers and said, “No thank you dear brother and sister. I have all the moral support I need right here.” Angel Maggie smiled and winked at her sister.

Whitey asked Whiskers and Talley, “Do you have anything planned for today while we wait for Callie? Don’t forget we have hockey tonight. Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy gave us all KCK t-shirts to wear tonight. The front of the shirt has a picture of the KCK team in their hockey gear and the back has the picture that Uncle Buddy Budd gave all of us that says, ‘Cats are the best bird watchers.’ Underneath the cool picture it says, ‘Pray For Uncle Buddy Budd- Our Future CC King.’ Angel Lucy left t-shirts for all of us.”

Whiskers got up from his seat to look at one of the t-shirts that were sitting by the front door. “Wow, these are nice! Talley, maybe we should put them on now before we go over to K. Pete’s house.”
Callie said, “Make sure you leave two for me and Angel Maggie. We can change into them when we get back.”

Mom Mandy stood up, looking at her watch and said, “Okay girls, it’s time to go. We don’t want to be late. I’ll go warm up the car.”
Callie nodded nervously and said, “Whitey and Orangie, Angel Maggie and I have apple cinnamon muffins baking in the oven to take to K. Pete’s. They should be ready in a few minutes.”

Whiskers smacked his forehead and said, “I thought I smelled apples when I came downstairs, but I thought I must still be dreaming about Talley’s apple pies!”
Talley laughed and said, “I think I might be able to make that dream a reality later today. Let’s see how our day goes.”

After Callie, Angel Maggie drove away with Mom Mandy, the kitties packed up the apple cinnamon muffins and headed out. Flower, Ralph, Timothy and their sisters were playing outside in K. Pete’s front yard, all wearing their KCK t-shirts. Whiskers laughed and said, “We’re really going to look like a professional cheering squad tonight.” Talley grinned and said, “Oh the kids look adorable. They’ll have a lot of fun watching the games on the big screen at home. I do hope KCK comes home with another win tonight.”

Flower was the first to spy his family coming up the sidewalk. He ran to jump into his Uncle Whisker’s arms, but stopped on a dime when he saw his Uncle and Auntie Talley carrying several boxes. Flower and the boys immediately went into help-mode, offering to carry the delicious breakfast muffins.

Inside K. Pete’s house, Pearl was finishing up with a quick cleaning, while Annabella and Lisa were in the kitchen preparing breakfast. This morning they would be serving individual vegetable quiches with fresh fruit cups. The boys took the muffins to the kitchen, helping their Auntie Whitey and Auntie Orangie set them into warming baskets. Whiskers pulled out a chair for his lovely wife and meowed good morning to everyone.
K. Pete looked up from his newspaper and cup of coffee and said, “Are Callie and Angel Maggie on their way to the vet with your Mom?” Whiskers nodded, pouring him and Talley a cup of coffee. He asked his brother, “Have you heard any word on Uncle Buddy Budd or Smudge this morning?”
K. Pete looked sad when he said, “Still no news on Uncle Buddy Budd, but we did hear from Smudge’s family.” Whiskers felt his heart stop for a few seconds as he listened. K Pete continued, “There is still no sign of Smudge anywhere and his Mom Sara is confined to a wheelchair, so she isn’t able to help with the search. But no one has given up hope of finding Smudge. We just have to keep praying for him to find his way home safely.”
Talley got up to embrace her sister Ms. Murphy whom was visibly shaken up from the news about her dear furiend. Talley spoke softly, “Try not to worry too much precious sister. We have to think pawsitive and keep praying for dear Smudge. I have a lot of hope in my heart that he will find his way back home.“ Ms. Murphy nodded sadly as Talley wiped some tears from her sister’s pretty eyes.

Whiskers put his arm around Ms. Murphy and said, “Don’t forget how long it took before my Mom was reunited with Whitey. We’ll keep a prayer candle burning for Smudge every day, just like we’re doing for Harley and his furiend.”
Ms. Murphy nodded and tried to smile.

Pearl came from the kitchen, signaling to the boys breakfast was ready. Flower and Ralph sounded the chime softly, not feeling too chipper at the moment. Before sitting back down, the two boys stopped to hug their Auntie Ms. Murphy, laying their tiny heads in her lap. Ms. Murphy couldn’t help but smile.

Grace was said along with several prayers for their dear furiends in need. Whiskers wanted to lighten the solemn mood in the room. He said, “Flower, K. Pete showed me the logo you designed for Bumper and Lisa’s new restaurant, “Grass Roots.” I have to say, you are an excellent graphic artist. The logo alone will go a long way in drumming up new business for the restaurant. And I’m sure once anyone has eaten there, they will have a customer for life.” Flower grinned proudly, always happy to be of help.

Whiskers continued, “I know we all probably want to stay close to home until Callie and Angel Maggie get back. I thought we might take the kids to the Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose. It’s only about a 15 minute drive from here and I know the kids will love it.” Raven pulled the museum information up on her tablet and read aloud...
“The Children's Museum, a contemporary structure whose purple facade is fairly easy to spot, was designed with three concepts in mind: Community, Connections and Creativity. Indeed, kids and their parents are invited to participate in various interactive exhibits, ranging from technology to the arts. Many of the patrons' favorite exhibit is "WaterWays," an exhibit that teaches about the properties of water and includes a working canal system. The museum’s goal is to create interactive exhibits that invite self-directed, open-ended explorations.”

Ms. Murphy had Googled the same page and read aloud, “Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose has been ranked by Child Magazine as one of the top 10 children’s museums in the United States[2] and ranked by the London Observer as one of the top 5 science centers in the world.”

K. Pete smiled and said, “Yes, by all means let’s go pay a visit to the striking 52,000 sq. ft purple building. The building design alone is bound to make us all smile.”

The kids were delighted, always welcoming new fun and educational experiences. Before running off to get dressed for their day, Flower paused to say to his Uncle Whiskers, “You’ll let us know right away when Auntie Callie and Auntie Angel Maggie return home. No matter how much fun we’re having, we all want to get back home to our Aunties.”

Whiskers and Talley gave the kids big hugs. Whiskers said, “Let’s not waste any time. Talley and I will bring the van around and we’ll carry our cell phones with us so we don’t miss their call.” The kids ran off to their rooms, singing and laughing all the while. Whiskers walked out the door with his beautiful Talley to get the van. Whiskers pulled her into his arms and said, “Thank you for coming out here to California sweetheart. I honestly don’t know what my sisters and I would do without you and our family. I know we have some sad times that lie ahead of us, but I feel together we’ll be able to get through them.”

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

My love for you I hold in my heart
is an ocean, deep and wide
so far I could never cross,
so deep I cannot reach.

Its beauty like a rose
whose bloom is full and never fails
ever it grows.

There is, it seems, magic there
I saw it in your eyes
when first we met.
I see it still when you turn your gaze my way.

I don't understand it,
but I don't care
it is magic, it is beauty, it is wonder
and every day, every gaze
it is like new and quickens my heart.

Our love is the fountain of youth welling up
and young will we ever be, dancing... dancing...

Whiskers and Talley had spent the night sleeping
in the guest room. Whiskers awoke to the smell of delicious café au laits brewing. He smiled knowing his sisters were probably up early anticipating Callie’s visit to the vet. Callie had one more urine test to be taken, so she could get a clean bill of health. Talley opened her beautiful green eyes, always happy to see her Whiskers first thing in the morning. Whiskers smoothed the soft fur on her lovely cheek and said, “I was thinking about our dear furiend Uncle Buddy Budd last night. I hope and pray he gets well, but if God does decide to call him back home to heaven, I’m hoping our CC Kingdom will still crown him our King for June. He really deserves it. I’ve been reading some of his blogs that I missed while my Mom was ill, and reading about the crazy kitty antics that have gone on in his happy house made me laugh and smile. My heart goes out to his dear Momma right now. This has to be very tough for her. I don’t think my Mom could have gone on with my catpaign if I had suddenly become sick. But I have a feeling Uncle Buddy Budd’s Mom is made of tougher stuff than my Mom.” Whiskers sighed and said, “We shall see. We just have to keep praying for him and his family.”

Whiskers heard a soft knock on their bedroom door, jumping out of bed to answer. Callie was standing there, holding a tray with café au laits, orange juice and blueberry scones. Whiskers smiled and said, “Wow sister! Breakfast in bed? What’s the occasion?”
Callie smiled and mewed, “I just wanted to let you know Mom isn’t going to take me to the vet this morning. She has decided to give us both the day off from the vet and resume the inevitable tomorrow. I was so happy, I thought I’d share the mews with you and Talley right away.”

Whiskers took the tray from his sister, pausing to give her a kiss on the cheek. Callie smiled and peeked her head in the room to meow good morning to Talley. Talley waved from the bed and said, “That’s wonderful mews Callie. Don’t worry too much about your trip to the vet. When you go tomorrow, Whiskers and I will be happy to accompany you and your Mom.”
Callie thanked her loving sister and said, “Oh I’m not too worried. Angel Maggie has said she’ll be right there with me, so I’m good; but thank you very much for thinking of me.”
Whiskers asked Callie, “How is Mom this morning?” Callie replied, “Mom is a little tired from yesterday, so I told her to rest today.” Whiskers nodded and said, “That’s good. I know Mom is worried now about Ebony and Sugar Bear.

The vet told Mom an Upper Respiratory Infection can be very serious and is highly contagious, but the vet thinks Ebonys was caught in time. The vet reminded Mom that under no circumstances should Ebony make contact with us, especially me with my asthma. But we never do. We just wave at each other from our windows.”
Talley nodded and said, “Thank goodness Ebony and Sugar Bear have a nice home as inside cats. That should be helpful for Ebony’s condition. Of course we’ll keep both kitties in our prayers.”

Callie smiled and said, “Okay, I better let you two love birds drink your coffee while it’s still hot. Come down after you’re dressed. Whitey, Orangie and I are baking some blueberry scones and oat bran muffins to take over to K. Pete’s house. I spoke with Angel Maggie this morning and her and the girls are fixing smoked Breakfast Pork Chops and cornbread this morning.”
“Ummm!” Whiskers meowed. “Talley and I will be down lickety-split!”

The two kitties in love enjoyed their coffee and scones before taking a warm shower together. As Whiskers ran a brush through Talley’s soft lustrous fur, he said, “I’m almost glad to not have any messages on my phone this morning. Hopefully we’ll hear some good mews today about Uncle Buddy Budd, Smudge and the two other kitties that are missing from K. Barney’s family.”
Whiskers grinned broadly when he said, “Oh Talley, I was so happy last night at the hockey games when KCK won their game. And to top it all off, Angel Lucy Fur was singled out as a super star! I thought both Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie were stars, but then of course I’m happily biased.”

Talley smiled and said, “Yes, my sisters and their KCK team made everyone happy and proud yesterday. We all needed that exciting moment. Speaking of excitement sweetheart, do have any plans for our day?”
Whiskers kissed the top of Talley’s lovely head and said, “If the family feels up to it, I’d like to take the day to sightsee around San Francisco. I know the kids, and Mitch and Thomas for that matter, are looking forward to touring Alcatraz. It should be a beautiful day on the bay today. I also wanted to visit the National Shrine of Saint Francis of Assisi. We’ve seemed to have missed that on our previous trips to the city. The historic Church and beautiful Chapel are located in the heart of San Francisco and I think the family would enjoy praying in such a scared and blessed space.”

Talley got up to hug her beloved husband and mewed, “It sounds like you have a wonderful day planned my love. I hope it helps Ms. Murphy keep her mind off of her dear Smudge, if only for a brief moment.” Whiskers kissed Talley and said, “Let’s get this day started my precious love!”

The kitties decide to drive the short distance to K. Pete’s house. Callie and her sisters had baked enough scones and muffins for an army. Whisker’s Mom Mandy saw them out, reminding them that Dad Joe wanted to have a barbeque for all of them at the house. Dad Joe prided himself on his smoked barbeque ribs and chicken. Whiskers assured his Mom they would be back in time and promised not to ruin their appetites too much while in San Francisco.

Flower, Ralph, Timothy and their sisters were in K. Pete’s front yard waiting for the rest of their family. Whiskers and the girls were greeted with happy hugs and kisses. Flower jumped into Whiskers arms and said, “Uncle Whiskers, could your tummy hear my tummy calling him? My tummy has been rumbling all morning!” Whiskers laughed and said, “We heard you little buddy. It’s hard not be famished in a household of gourmet chefs like we are blessed with.”

Inside K. Pete’s house, everyone was seated at the table, sipping coffee and checking their laptops. K. Pete was reading his newspaper and was delighted to see that Callie had brought scones and muffins. Callie hurried to the kitchen to assist Angel Maggie with breakfast and setting the table. Whiskers pulled out a chair for Talley and poured them both another cup of delicious French roast coffee.

Whiskers had a feeling there was no news yet on Uncle Buddy Budd or Smudge, so he decided to wait and ask his brother later. While Callie served the scones and muffins, Whiskers said, “My Mom had a nice story to tell after her visit to the vet with Ebony. She met a nice man who was there with an adorable Shih Tzu puppy. The little doggie was shaking uncontrollably in the man’s arms. My Mom held out her palm to the little pup, who proceeded to lick Mom’s fingers. The man shook his head and told Mom that was a first for the frightened doggie. He was very pleased. Apparently the man and his wife foster abused dogs. They get the dogs medically well and then work on helping the dogs to be sociable. This little dog, less than a year old had been badly abused by the kids in his home, until some kind soul reported them and the doggie was rescued. The dog was badly matted and had an eye infection. The man said the Shih Tzu (a female) was very scared of humans, so he was surprised when she licked my Mom’s hand. My Mom did her best not to cry when she told the man she was thankful to see there were some kind and loving people in this world, such as him and his wife.”

K. Pete smiled and said, “It’s hard to believe how cruel some humans can be to defenseless animals, but it’s always heartening to know there are others who care deeply.”

Flower and the kids were listening with sad looks on their tiny faces. Flower raised his paw and when called upon, he said, “Stories like that make me more determined than ever to do good in this world, for all the animals.”
Talley hugged her sweet nephew and said, “You and the kids are our hope for a happier future.” Flower and the kids were beaming with pride.

Breakfast was ready to be served and eaten, but not before the breakfast chime and certainly not before grace was said. Everyone loved the moment in the morning when they could all join paws and pray for their dear furiends.

Breakfast was delicious as always and kudos were given to the talented chefs. The family was excited to be going to San Francisco for sightseeing and all were eager to get the show on the road.

While Whiskers, K. Pete, Mitch, Thomas and Bumper packed up the van, Raven and Ms. Murphy came with their tablets, asking if they might be able to visit Angel Island State Park, along with Alcatraz Island. The girls had found an interesting tour that showcased an Alcatraz and Angel Island Combination tour. Ms. Murphy read to the boys from her tablet...
“The Alcatraz & Angel Island Combination Tour showcases two of San Francisco Bay's most famous and historically rich islands, Alcatraz Island and Angel Island State Park. The tour includes ferry rides to and from Angel Island and Alcatraz, a one-hour narrated Angel Island tram tour, and the Alcatraz Cellhouse audio tour "Doing Time." The Alcatraz & Angel Island Combination Tour is approximately 5 ½ hours long and departs from Pier 33 Alcatraz Landing at 9:30am.”

Ms. Murphy looked at her brother Pete whom was smiling when he said, “Well we better get going if we want to make the ferry!” The smiles on Ms. Murphy and Raven’s faces made Whisker’s heart fill with joy. Today would be a wonderful day!

The boys finished loading everyone’s day bags, helped the kids buckle up and off they went. Singing and laughter could be heard coming from the van as it disappeared down the road.

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

It's Been Years
It’s been years since we first met
Since we looked into each other's eyes
Not realizing that we were meant to be together
It's been years since we shared our first laugh
Our first smile
Since we shared our first kiss
I remember how my arms embraced you
How soft you held me
How warm and gentle you were
I remember how passionate that first kiss was
Now my heart is dancing
Happy, knowing that it's been years
It's been years since we first met
And you're still here kissing me just the same
You're still here holding me just the same
What I felt for you is still the same
It's been years
And that feeling will never change

Whiskers and Talley had fallen asleep
last night in the living room of his pawrent’s home. Callie, Whitey and Orangie had gone upstairs to sleep with Mom Mandy who was feeling much better every day. Whisker’s eye caught the light blinking on his cell phone which was sitting on the coffee table. He looked at Talley. She was still fast asleep and she looked like a sleeping princess. Talley was laying in Whisker’s arms and he wasn’t about to move and wake her up. Even though the shutters in the living room were open, it was dark inside. Outside the cloud cover made it so. Talley must have sensed something. She opened her beautiful green eyes, kissed her husband good morning and mewed, “Whiskers, you should check your phone for the message. It might be Pete.”
Whiskers nodded and got up to read the message. He laid back down next to his precious wife, his eyes filled with tears. Talley smoothed the tears from his cheeks with her paw and whispered, “What has happened my love?”
Whiskers choked back his tears and mewed, “The message is from Uncle Buddy Budd. He is very sick right now and he might not make it. The strong kitty that he is, he said he is worried about his Mom and for the CC community who lost their Queen so soon.”
Talley looked in disbelief at her Whiskers. Suddenly she broke into soft sobs. Alarmed and grief-stricken, Whiskers pulled Talley into his arms, holding her as tightly as he could. He couldn’t help thinking just how much more sadness could the CC Empire endure? Was God testing them? But why?”
Whiskers smoothed the soft fur on his beautiful wife’s head and he knew he had to be strong for her. Seeing her sad made his heart feel as if it was breaking into a million pieces. Whiskers began to softly hum their song, “Till Then.” Talley’s sobs began to subside. Whiskers whispered in her ear, “We have to remember Uncle Buddy Budd is a fighter. That cancer hasn’t won yet. But even if it is time for our dear furiend to cross the illustrious Rainbow Bridge, we know he’ll be met by our beloved Angels and he’ll never be alone. Until then, let’s keep hope in our hearts that God will give him a little more time with us. He is after all, our future King.”

Talley my precious love, my Mom had to take Ebony to the vet this morning. Abarna called and said Ebony was sneezing a lot and had a discharge coming from his eyes. Mom went over right away, put him in the cat carrier and she just got back. Ebony has an upper respiratory infection and was given a penicillin injection and a steroid injection. Ebony also had a clump of matted hair close to his behind that needed to be shaven off. He’ll have to go back to the vet in ten days and Abarna has to keep a close eye on Sugar Bear because the respiratory infection could be contagious. I will try to be back later sweetheart. My Mom was hoping to get us all to the hockey game tonight. I love you always and furever.

Yours furever, Whiskers.

Whiskers was woken up early by his Mom,
wanting to give him his first dose of the liquid antibiotics. Mom Mandy found it was easier to have Talley hold Whisker’s paw while she put the drops in his mouth. Whiskers took his medicine like the good boy he was. He also wanted to make Talley proud of him, so he swallowed the bitter tasting liquid, making a sour face. He said, “That stuff tastes awful! We need to invent a better tasting medicine.” Mom Mandy smiled and said, “I did get you a chicken flavored blend, but I guess all medicine, for humans and animals, tastes pretty awful. It’s only for ten days.”
Talley had a glass of cranberry juice for Whiskers to wash down the medicine. Whiskers took the glass and sipped it slowly. “Ah, that’s much better. Thank you my love.” Talley smiled and wiped her husband mouth with her handkerchief.

Whisker’s Mom asked Talley, “Have you heard any news about how your Dad’s shoulder is healing?” Talley nodded happily and said, “My Dad is doing great My brother Pete spoke to my pawrents yesterday and my Mom said Dad was already outside working in the yard digging holes for some new trees my Mom bought.”
Mom Mandy shook her head and said, “Oh my goodness, should he be doing that? It seems much too strenuous for the injury his shoulder sustained.”
Talley smiled and said, “I’m sure my Dad is being very careful. He just can’t sit still for very long. He’s always on the go, but I’m sure my Mom will keep a close eye on him.”
Mom Mandy hugged Talley and said, “Well let your pawrents know that I have them in my prayers.”

Whiskers looked at his Mom and said, “You look much better Mom. Your face is almost back to normal. Maybe you won’t mind if we leave you alone to rest today. I wanted to take the family to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk today. I know the kids will love the amusement rides and we can have a nice seafood lunch on the pier at my favorite restaurant, Gilbert’s on the Wharf.”
Mom Mandy smiled and said, “That sounds wonderful. Be sure to dress in layers because you know how unpredictable the weather is. It looks overcast and foggy right now, but it might burn off and you’ll all be able to enjoy a sunny day on the beach.”

Callie, Whitey and Orangie came from the kitchen with coffee and toast for their Mom. Callie had also whipped up a delicious vitamin fruit smoothie for her Mom. Callie hugged her Mom and said, “I thought this might settle your tummy. I just spoke to Angel Maggie on the phone and we’ll be joining the family for breakfast this morning.”

Whiskers clapped his paws and told the girls about his plans to visit Santa Cruz. The girls were delighted and ran to their rooms to get dressed.

As Whiskers and the girls walked up the driveway to K. Pete’s house, Whiskers stopped to sniff the air. “Ah, I smell bacon and sausage in the air. I think my tummy just might forgive me after putting that awful medicine in it.” Suddenly the front door flew open and out came the kids running to greet the rest of their family. Whiskers caught Flower and Ralph in mid-air, twirling them round and round as good mornings were shouted. Whiskers smiled at Talley and said, “I could never tire of being greeted like this every morning.”

Callie ran inside first, hoping she had made it in time to help with breakfast. Everyone was seated at the table enjoying hot coffee and hot chocolates. K. Pete had just finished a Skype call with Inky, Bobby and Storm. K. Pete looked pleased when he said, “The boys are doing a great job taking care of our home and watching the shelters. Bobby tells me that Paulie and Opal have been helping out a lot, keeping the shelters clean and the supplies replenished. We’ll need to do something extra special when we get home to thank them for all their hard work.”

Whiskers nodded and couldn’t agree more. He said, “We’ll bring back lots of souvenirs for our furiends and maybe we can have a nice barbeque when we get home to celebrate.” Whiskers looked at K. Pete and asked, “How are you feeling brother? I know your visit to the vet is coming up soon. Let us know the exact day. Talley and I will be happy to go with you for moral support. I know it helped me a lot to have Talley with me at my vet appointment.” K. Pete nodded and said he would let his brother know. Whiskers asked softly, “Ms. Murphy, has there been any word on Smudge yet?” Ms. Murphy shook her head sadly and said, “Not yet Whiskers, but we’re all remaining hopeful.”

Angel Maggie and Callie came from the kitchen carrying platters filled with scrambled eggs, silver-dollar pancakes with whipped butter, applewood-smoked bacon, sausage links and pan-fried potatoes. Whiskers, Flower, Timothy and Ralph were licking their lips in anticipation. After chiming the breakfast bell, Flower and Ralph sat down to join paws with their family for the saying of grace.

Whiskers took a bite of his food and sighed. “This is delicious girls. My tummy and I can’t thank you enough.” With a satisfied look on his face, Whiskers said, “If everyone feels up to a little adventure today, I thought we could all take a short drive over the Santa Cruz Mountains to visit the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. It’s home to California’s oldest amusement park and it’s as original and memorable as boardwalks come.” The kids all let out a squeal of excitement.

Whiskers smiled and said, “The half-mile long amusement park is filled with rides and arcades. I especially want to take the kids to ride the Giant Dipper roller coaster. It’s a classic wooden roller coaster and it’s even a National Historic Landmark. We can throw our paws in the air and scream our lungs out!”
Flower raised his paw to ask, “May we have cotton candy Uncle Whiskers?”
Whiskers looked at Pearl, Annabella and Lisa who were all smiling. He said, “Absolutely little buddy! The Boardwalk is also famous for their delicious salt-water taffy. We’ll all just have to make sure to brush our teeth when we get back home.”
Flower giggled and said, “Oh Uncle Whiskers! We always brush our teeth, just like our Mommas taught us.”

So the family had a full day planned. Whiskers thought spending a day at an amusement park might help lift everyone’s spirits, if only for a day. After thanking the girls for a wonderful start to the day, Whiskers and Talley insisted on cleaning up while everyone else got dressed for the busy day.

Whiskers washed dishes while his beautiful Talley dried. He said to his lovely wife, “I want to ride the hand-carved merry-go-round at the park. Remember when we rode in the love seat together? I have a lot of happy memories there with you my love.” Whiskers took Talley in his arms and mewed, “I’m married to most wonderful kitty in the world. I love you so much Talley.” Talley answered her husband with a deep kiss.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my darling Tallulah.

I thought love was just a mirage of the mind,
it's an illusion, it's fake, impossible to find.
But the day I met you, I began to see,
that love is real, and exists in me.

Whiskers and Talley were up early, anticipating
Whiskers visit to the vet this morning. Whiskers Mom had gotten up to make a power shake and coffee for his Dad. He would be returning to work today since Mom Mandy was doing much better and this was the last week of school before summer vacation. Whiskers could tell his Mom was nervous about taking him to the vet. He didn’t know who got more nervous about their trips to the vet - him and his sisters or his silly Mom. Whiskers sighed and thought; I guess that’s what Moms do best, is worry about their kids.

While Whisker’s Mom got ready, Talley and Callie made their way into the kitchen to fix some bagels with cream cheese and a nice Venetian blend coffee. Talley knew no one would have much of an appetite this morning, but she knew it was important for her husband to have something in his tummy, especially if he was going to be getting some antibiotics. Talley looked fresh and lovely in a springtime cotton dress and matching jacket. As was usually the case in San Jose, it was foggy and cool outside in the morning. Whiskers had his blue suit on, wanting to look nice but be comfortable at the same time.

Just as Talley and Callie were setting the table, Orangie, Whitey and Mom Mandy joined the family. Mom Mandy gave Talley a warm hug and thanked her for coming with them to the vet this morning. She said, “I know your presence will help calm Whiskers and me too for that matter. We shouldn’t be at the vet too long. I know Whiskers wants to get back to the family so you can all be together.

Mom Mandy said grace, asking the Lord to look after her little boy. Whiskers blushed when he heard himself referred to as a little boy. A prayer was added for all their furiends and families in need.

Whiskers smiled and said, “Talley was telling me about the Airshow K. Pete is planning for Queen Angel Sakura’s Memorial Day event. It sounds amazing! Talley and Angel Mallow will be performing their Helicopter Ballet and K. Pete has me flying with the Royal Feline Squadron in our Missing Man Formation. I just know the Queen is going to love the performances.”

Mom Mandy smiled and said, “It sounds wonderful. Be sure to take a lot pictures. Your Dad and I would love to see the grand event.” Mom Mandy thought for a minute and said, “Whiskers, I know you feel healthy, but you will be on medication. I trust you not to over exert yourself.”
Talley nodded and said, “Don’t worry Mom Mandy. I will keep a close eye on him.” Mom Mandy looked visibly relieved. She knew her boy was in good paws with sweet Talley.

Whiskers looked at his pocket watch, a prized possession and gift from his brother K. Pete that had a picture of Talley as a kitten and a lock of her fur as well. He said, “We should get going. We don’t want to be late for my appointment.”

Whiskers helped Talley with her jacket, pausing for hugs from his sisters, wishing him good luck.

The trip to the vet was short. Talley held Whisker’s paw in hers all the way until they were in the parking lot. Whiskers took a deep breath and helped Talley out of the car, following their Mom inside. They were shown into a room right away and waited for the doctor. Dr. Natt never liked to keep her patients waiting. She came in with a smile on her face. Mom Mandy introduced Talley to Dr. Natt, who welcomed her with a warm hug. Whiskers was ready. He hopped up on the table, never taking his eyes off of his beloved wife. The doctor gave him the injection and went over the medicine dosage with his Mom. Dr. Natt smiled and said, “See! That wasn’t so bad. We’re all done. I’ll need to see Whiskers again when he finishes his medicine.” Dr. Natt continued, “My family is originally from India and we are of the Hindu faith. We believe in reincarnation. Do you know what that is?”
Whiskers, Talley and Mom Mandy nodded as they listened.
Dr Natt said, “If I could choose my next life, I would choose to be a pet in your family. There is a tremendous amount of love in your home. And Whiskers, you are extremely well behaved. I’m used to getting scratched and hissed at by my feline patients, but you never make a peep. I’m always sad to see you so frightened, but you are truly the purrfect patient. With that said, I’ll let you go home now!”

Back in the waiting room, Talley held her husband’s paw while they waited for Mom Mandy to pay the bill. Talley mewed, “You were very brave in there sweetheart. I’m so proud of you. And I like your doctor. She has a kind and gentle demeanor.” Whiskers nodded nervously and said, “I’m glad you came with me my love. You made me feel brave.” Whiskers hugged Talley. The two kitties in love watched a small dog being carried to a room in a dog carrier. The doggie looked sad, but smiled when he caught Talley and Whiskers smiling and waving at him. Whiskers sighed and said, “No matter how furiendly the vet office may be, I always breathe a sigh of relief when I finally walk out the door.”
Talley giggled and said, “I better call Pete and let him know everything went well. The family is naturally concerned about you.” Whiskers nodded and said, “Ask K. Pete if we can still make it in time for breakfast. I suddenly have my appetite back!”

Talley laughed and said, “I’m sure Angel Maggie was anticipating that!”

After Talley hung up, she kissed her husband and said, “Angel Maggie and Pearl made Vegetable & Eggs Benedict this morning. Bumper and Lisa picked some fresh vegetables from your pawrents greenhouse with Callie’s help. Bumper has even offered to help your pawrents with some of his expert tips on how to care for the plants they have growing.” Whiskers laughed and said, “My Mom will be glad to accept help from our furiends. She doesn’t exactly have a green thumb like our Bumper and Lisa!”

Home was just a few minutes away. Whitey and Orangie met them at the door, anxious to go to K. Pete’s house. Callie was already there helping out with the food. Whiskers and Talley kissed Mom Mandy good bye, eager to put the trip to the vet behind them.

Whiskers and the girls were met at K. Pete’s house with an armful of happy kids. Flower jumped into his Uncle Whisker’s arms and exclaimed, “Uncle Pete said your doctor visit went great. We were all praying real hard for you Uncle Whiskers!”

Whiskers gave his little nephew a big hug and said, “I couldn’t have done it without all your prayers.”

Once inside the house, Whisker’s tummy let out a loud roar. Angel Maggie smiled as she came from the kitchen and said, “Let me guess! Whiskers is here.” The family laughed at his voracious and very vocal appetite.

Once everyone was seated at the table they joined paws to give thanks for another day together. A special prayer was said for their furiend Smudge, whom had been missing for several days now. Whiskers could see the worry on Ms. Murphy’s face. The family was hopeful he would return safely to his loving home, as no one had given up hope that Harley and his furiend would return safely home too.

Whiskers suggested they might all go for a walk along the trail by the house. The church his Mom attends is right along the way. They could all stop to light some prayer candles for their furiends.

The family enjoyed a delicious start to their day. Whiskers cleaned his plate, happy to be with his kitty love and his wonderful family.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my precious Talley.
You came into my life unexpectedly,
and everything took a turn for the better.
Your warm eyes, your laugh,
the sincere way you speak,
and the kindness you showed me,
all became a part of my life.

As you unfolded yourself to me,
I discovered more and more beauty.
I have never seen so much
gentleness in one kitty.
Without even knowing it,
you were slowly making a place
for yourself in my heart.

It used to seem so hard at times
to feel so close in a relationship.
But it’s so easy to feel close to you.
I can’t tell you how nice that feels.
I realize now that I had never known
what it meant to be loved
until I was loved by you.

Dear Talley,
I know this will come as a shock to you, but Zoe Monique and I had a discussion stemming from an absolutely unbelievable letter I got from her. Feelings were hurt, and I resigned from the Hairballz Rainbow Riders. It was time for me to move on.

I just wanted you to know how much fun I've had working and visiting with the Club and I'll miss your comaraderie. See you on CC!

Purrs & kitty kisses,

Whiskers woke up with a song in his heart
this morning. He had his Talley with him and all was right with the world again. Talley was already wide awake. She put her paw to her lips and pointed towards Whisker’s Mom sleeping. Whiskers nodded and the two kitties in love slipped out of bed, not even waking Callie, Whitey or Orangie. Whiskers closed the bedroom door and gave Talley a soft kiss good morning. He whispered, “I think it did my Mom good to see our family yesterday. She told me she finally feels like she is on the road to recovery. I just knew when she met the kids, she wouldn’t be able to help feeling better. They spread sunshine everywhere they go. And of course, tasting your apple pie helped a lot. Just what the doctor ordered!”

Talley giggled softly and said, “Let’s go make a light breakfast for your pawrents. We can serve breakfast in bed for your Mom. I’ll call Pete and let him know we’ll be joining them for breakfast at our house. It will be good for Orangie, Whitey and Callie to get out the house.” Whiskers nodded and said, “It has been a long week and I think Mom and Dad will be just fine without us today. We can all stop by to check on them before we start our day. I want to take the kids over to Almaden Lake. We can introduce them to our furiends, the big geese who almost stole our picnic food.”

Whiskers saw the light blinking on his pawrent’s phone, indicating there was a message. He pushed the message button on the phone and listened. It was from Dr. Natt, his vet. The blood and urine tests results were back in for Whiskers. Talley held her breath as they listened. Dr. Natt said Whisker’s blood was good, but his urine sample showed a slight infection. She needed to start treatment on him for a Urinary Tract Infection. Whiskers gasped. He hadn’t felt sick at all! Talley looked concerned when she heard the vet say Whiskers would need to come in for an injection of antibiotics and start a 10 day dose of liquid antibiotics. Dr. Natt ended the call saying Whisker’s UTI was not bad, but needed to be cleared up before he had his dental cleaning in June.

Whiskers looked at Talley and said, “I could just delete the message from the phone before Mom has a chance to hear it.” Talley shook her head no and said, “Sweetheart, you need to have your infection taken care of. I’ll go with you my love. I’d like to meet your vet and make sure she knows you have a lot of family that cares for you.”
Whiskers nodded sadly and said, “This has not been a good month for any of us in this house, but I know with you and your family, we’ll get through this. At least Callie is almost finished with her medicine. I bet Callie is going to have a chuckle when she hears it’s my turn.”

Talley smiled and said, “I don’t think Callie will be happy at all to hear the news. Your sister loves you too much. But you’re right sweetheart- together we’ll all get through this.” Whiskers pulled Talley into his arms, thanking God for making him the luckiest tom in the world. He had to stay healthy for his Talley.

While Whiskers started to fix coffee for his pawrents, Talley called Pete to let him know they would be coming over soon for breakfast. K. Pete was delighted and said Angel Maggie , Annabella and Pearl were already busy in the kitchen making pancakes. Talley smiled after she hung up and told Whiskers what to expect. Whiskers and his tummy smiled when they heard pancakes!

Callie, Whitey and Orangie came into the kitchen, just as Whiskers and Talley were ready to bring the breakfast trays for Mom Mandy and Dad Joe. Whiskers said, “Good morning sleepy heads. You girls get dressed while Talley and I serve breakfast for our pawrents. We’re going to have breakfast with K. Pete and the family.” Callie smiled, hugging her brother and sweet Talley. She mewed, “We’ll be ready in a few minutes.” Orangie and Whitey were delighted and couldn’t run to their rooms fast enough.

Whiskers and Talley served breakfast in bed for their pawrents. Whiskers told his mom about the message from Dr. Natt. Mom Mandy listened, looking very concerned. She took Whiskers paw in her hand and said, “Don’t worry my handsome boy. Dr. Natt is a good vet and I know she’ll get you better.” Talley was nodding her head in agreement. Whiskers said, “Well, we can’t go to the vet until tomorrow, so Talley and my sisters are going to take the family to Almaden Lake this afternoon. Will you be okay without us Mom?”
Mom Mandy smiled, hugging the two kitties and said, “I’ll be fine. You and the family go have a wonderful day. Tell Callie the refrigerator is filled with everything you’ll need for a picnic. Please help yourselves. And thank you both for a delicious breakfast. I love you both very much. Now go and have fun!”

Whiskers and Talley ran to start preparing sandwiches for the picnic, but Callie, Whitey and Orangie were already a step ahead of them. Callie laughed and said, “I had a feeling you might want to take the kids to the lake. We can rent the pedal boats to explore the lake. I know the kids will love it. And this time I’m taking a couple of sacks of birdseed for those pesky geese.”

Whiskers and Talley helped pack the picnic baskets. They decided to drive over to K. Pete’s house. On the short drive down the block, the kitties felt happier than ever and the car was filled with kitties singing a happy tune! Whiskers squeezed Talley’s paw in his, never wanting to let it go again!

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

Love Defined ♥
What is love, but an emotion,
So strong and so pure,
That nurtured and shared with another
All tests it will endure?

What is love, but a force
To bring the mighty low,
With the strength to shame the mountains
And halt time’s ceaseless flow?

What is love, but a triumph,
A glorious goal attained,
The union of two souls, two hearts
A bond the angels have ordained?

What is love, but a champion,
To cast the tyrant from his throne,
And raise the flag of truth and peace,
And fear of death o’erthrow?

What is love, but a beacon,
To guide the wayward heart,
A blazing light upon the shoals
That dash cherished dreams apart?

And what is love, but forever,
Eternal and sincere,
A flame that through wax and wane
Will outlive life’s brief years?

So I’ll tell it on the mountaintops,
In all places high and low,
That love for you is my reason to be,
And will never break or bow.

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
“Oh Talley my precious love, I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am to see you and our wonderful family. We’ve all miss everyone so much, I think I’m going to cry!” Talley gave her husband a handkerchief from her pocket; at the same time showering him with warm kisses. Whiskers finally composed himself and said, “I have some good mews about my Mom. Her CT scan today showed the surgery was indeed successful but she has to finish the antibiotics and corticosteroids. Mom hates the new antibiotics because they are stronger and really make her nauseous. But Mom is looking on the bright side and said she is always ready to lose a few pounds. My Dad was not amused!”

“After my pawrents returned from the hospital, Dad was going to take me for my scheduled urine and blood tests at the vet this afternoon. Mom put me in the cat carrier, but when she saw how unhappy I was, she insisted on going with Dad to the vet. I’m proud of myself for giving the vet a urine sample right away and I didn’t even cry when the vet drew my blood sample. Now we wait for the results.”

“Needled to say my love, my Mom is all tuckered out and needs to lay down. I was hoping to go with all of you to hockey tonight, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. You know my sisters and I will be cheering for KCK. I’m so excited to have our extended family here too. I can hardly wait to take the kids sightseeing. We’ll have to go to Santa Cruz for the parks and the beaches and of course we’ll have to spend a day in San Francisco!”

Whiskers wrapped his arms tightly around his darling wife, breathing in the heavenly scent of her soft fur.” “I missed you so much my love! I just know my Mom is on the road to recovery. I know she feels very bad about not being to do much but lay in bed, but it is helping. Her face almost looks normal - not all swollen. When you and the family see her tomorrow, don’t be frightened by the bruising around her eye. It’s just from the surgery. My Mom and Dad are encouraged after the visit to the doctor today. The before and after scans of Mom’s sinuses showed a vast improvement.”

Whiskers held Talley in his arms, still not sure whether this was just a wonderful dream or was his beloved really in his arms right now. Talley giggled and said, “I’m really here sweetheart. The kids are eager to see you and the girls. Let’s rest for awhile and then we’ll go over to the house to say hello to everyone. Does that sound like a plan?”
Whiskers nodded, not wanting to ever let Talley out of his arms again.

Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs, my beautiful and beloved Tallulah.
P.S. Callie is almost done with her antibiotics. Mom is very proud of her. We hope your sweet Dad's shoulder is on the mend.

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Sweetheart, I miss you like crazy, but hopefully soon our lives will be back to normal. My Mom had a restless night. Her tummy is very upset with the new medicine and she has been drinking 7-up and ginger ale to settle her tummy. I'm taking good care of her sweetie. Mom is not supposed to sneeze, or cough or do anything that puts pressure on her head, so she's curled up in bed with us. I hope to be back later to whisper sweet nothings in your ear.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs, my darling Talley.

Give your family hugs for me. We have your Dad in our prayers.

how are you all this afternoon?
we had a lovely mother's day albeit janet working and then stuck online most of the afternoon, and just after a few interruptions which is why she was off so late and getting supper started as well as finding an hour sitting out to read before supper was ready as well as after their hot steamy walk after supper was over. it was even very hard sleeping last night as the breezes pooped out and it was very hot even with her door open and win-dows wide open as well. you'll see double blogs tomorrow for tues/wed only due that janet likely won't have ampe time to get much blogging done due to garden work which is great due to not being done for 2-3 weeks as well. hoping we'll see you for the sleepover tomorrow night as well as the games on wednesday. we'll honor sakura so pass it on as we're trying to surprise her. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Oh Talley, I’m so glad your sweet Mom had a wonderful Mother’s Day celebration. The food served must have been delicious. My tummy rumbled just reading about it!

Sweetheart, my Mom has to go back to the doctor this morning. My Dad stayed home and he will take her. The swelling under her eye is not any worse, but it’s it hasn’t gone down so the doctor will probably want to do a CT scan this time. Hopefully Mom will be back later and I’ll meow back at you then.

Callie took her medicine like a champ this morning. I’ll bet Angel Maggie had a good talk with her. It worked!

We hope and pray your Dad’s shoulder is feeling a little better. Give him a soft hug for us and let him know he is in our prayers.

I love you Talley, always and furever. Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs, from your Whiskers.

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Happy Mother’s Day to your dear Mom Mary Lou! Give her a big, warm hugs for us. We hope she has an extra special day with her wonderful family.

Whiskers gives his Talley a soft kiss, and then whispers in her ear, “I apologize once again for my short love blog to you sweetheart. My Mom’s left eye is still not any better today, so Dad is going to take the day off tomorrow and go with her back to the doctor- unless the swelling goes down today. You never know. We all have our paws crossed. My Dad brought Mom breakfast in bed this morning for Mother’s Day. We were all sitting with Mom on the bed purring and Mom was smiling!”

I have a story that will make you laugh. Yesterday, Callie disappeared again after taking her medicine in the morning. But this time, Mom and Dad were absolutely certain no one had opened any doors so Callie had to be in the house or in the backyard. My pawrents got worried when they couldn’t find her, but Dad said we just have to wait her out. Six hours later, Callie comes walking from the backyard into the living room (through the cat door). Dad saw her and went to get Mom who was laying down upstairs with me, Whitey and Orangie. They couldn’t understand where she could have been hiding in the backyard. The backyard is very small!
Any way, Mom sat down on the couch for a while, just shaking her head and wondering. So I decided to go outside and scout around in the backyard. Mom was watching me and saw me sniffing around the back fence where the edge of the wooden deck meets the fence. The area is covered with a big plant and ivy on the ground. Mom came out to see what I was looking at. She had to get on her knees and feel around with her hand, because it’s in an area that is impossible to see. So she felt around and suddenly she felt a small hole in the deck. Just big enough for her to get her hand in. When the deck was rebuilt last year, the guys must have had a hard time building in that spot - it’s a tight space where the deck meets the fence.
But the hole was definitely big enough for a cat to crawl through and get under the deck! So that’s where Callie was hiding! Hee, hee, hee! I spilled the beans!

Mom gave me a big hug and Dad fixed the hole up right away. Mom was so relieved to know she wasn’t going crazy. MOL!

My Mom is going to lay back down and close her eyes. We should be at hockey tonight my love. I’ll be sure to set Mom’s alarm! I love you sweetheart. We hope your Dad is resting and taking good care of his shoulder today. Give both your pawrents hugs for us.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs.

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Good morning Talley my beautiful wife. My love blog to you today will be brief, but I wanted you to know you are always on my mind. My Mom is resting her eye today, trying to keep it closed. Yesterday she spent most of the day outside searching for Callie. Thank God that had a happy ending. Then Mom had to go back to the vet to get Callie’s new medicine. Callie was able to hold the new medicine down last night, but this morning after about an hour, Callie threw up. The vet said to keep an eye on her. Holding it down for an hour is good - at least it got into her system. The strong antibiotic is probably making her tummy upset. Callie, Whitey, Orangie and myself are laying with Mom in bed, keeping a watchful over her. Mom wanted to read to us, but Dad shook his head and told her to keep her eyes shut. No fun at all!

We hope your Dad is resting his shoulder and keeping the ice on it. That must be difficult for him too. I know you and your family are watching him carefully and keeping him company. Let him know we all have him in our prayers sweetheart.

I’m hoping my Mom’s eye will look better later so I can do some of my CC visits. We’ll see. Dad is watching her like a hawk!

I love you with all my heart. I’m sending you soft kisses and warm hugs.

My Vow To You
When you are sad, I will dry your tears
When you are scared, I will comfort your fears
When you need love, my heart I will share
When you are sick, for you I will care

You will feel my love when we are apart
Knowing that nothing will change my heart
When you are worried, I will give you hope
When you are confused, I will help you cope

When you are lost, and can’t see the light
My love will be a beacon, shining ever so bright
This is my vow, one that I pledge till the end
For you above all are my wife and best furiend

These words I have written, speak of my love for you
From my lips these words spoken, shall always ring true
God has blessed me, and with your paw in mine
Both of our hearts, will forever intertwine

Into all lives, falls pain and sorrows,
I promise together, we will meet all tomorrows
Happy in marriage, honor and love
blessed in unity by God above

Dearest Talley!
Your permission has helped mom take a nice deep breath!
I think CMR also requires you to okay it.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! So, just to confirm:
You will campaign in June and in July become Queen, correct? We will campaign in July and Queen in August.Right? Double checking because our mom wants to be ready.....thank you again!

Dear Tally,
Oh you will not believe this. I never ran for Queen nor have been Queen of the month, so we miscalculated!
Mom and dad are going to Europe in June and I realized that if I'm Queen in July, I need to run in June! I would so appreciate it if you could switch with me???
Mom is so worried. As my secretary, she wanted to do a good job for me as Queen for the first time!Thank you!!!!

Whiskers and Talley had both had a difficult
time sleeping last night. They were very worried about the seriousness of Dad Mike’s injury to his shoulder and they wished there was something they could do to help. Talley felt confident that her Mom and Aunt Barbara were keeping a good watch over him, making sure he got the rest he desperately needed for a full recovery.
Whiskers had his arms around his beautiful wife when he said, “I can’t even imagine the pain your Dad must have felt when he pulled his shoulder out of the socket and then popped it back in. It had to be excruciating, but your Dad never lets on. He is an incredibly strong and courageous man. We just have to keep him in our prayers and ask God to look after him and your family.”

Talley nodded sadly and snuggled deeper into her husband’s arms. There was a soft tap at their bedroom door. Before Whiskers could get up to answer, Angel Lucy, Angel Sylvie and Angel Maggie came floating into their room, wearing beautiful white shimmering robes. The Angels stopped at the foot of the bed, hovering with extreme sadness on their faces. Whiskers felt his heart tighten. He asked softly, “What has happened?” Whiskers held on to his Talley tightly, waiting for their reply.
Angel Sylvie spoke. “Our Queen Sakura crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. She is an Angel now. My sisters and I are going there right now to be with her.”
Talley let out a sorrowful mew as Whiskers held her head tightly into his chest. Tears began to stream from his eyes. He said to the Angels, “Thank you for breaking the news to us. Does the rest of the family know?”
Angel Lucy nodded and said, “We spoke with our brother. He thought it best if the rest of family hear it from the three of you. Everyone is still asleep.”
Talley picked her head up, turning to her sisters and mewed, “Thank you my precious sisters. Go be with our Queen now. Her and her family will need all of you more than ever. We’ll go downstairs and sit with Pete.”

The Angels disappeared in a glimmering light. Whiskers never let go of Talley, turning to kiss the tears from her eyes. Unable to control himself, Whiskers broke down into heart wrenching sobs. The two kitties in love cried together in each other’s arms. Whiskers could feel Talley’s tiny body shaking against his. He tried with all his might to compose himself. It saddened him tremendously to see his precious wife so distraught. For a second, he felt angry at God for taking their Queen away from all those here on earth that loved her so very much. But he knew this was wrong and he asked God to please forgive him. He knew it was not his place to question God’s reasoning.
