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

The sun was just starting to peek through
the bedroom window when Whiskers opened his eyes. Talley was snuggled tightly in his arms. Whiskers laid his face next to hers, relishing in the feel of her soft, silky fur. He took a deep breath to smell the sweet, fragrant scent of his beautiful Talley. This moment would remain ingrained in his memory to keep him happy for the next few days while he was away. Whiskers sighed. Talley awoke, sensing her husband was feeling a bit melancholy about being apart for a few days. She gave Whiskers a deep kiss, dispelling his worries right out the window. Talley said, “I’ll miss you too sweetheart, but time will pass quickly if we keep busy and before we know it, we’ll be back in each other’s arms.” Whiskers nodded and smiled, hating to always sound like such a worrywart. But it was just his nature to worry about those he loved. Talley always knew how to make him feel better. The mere sight of her had a calming effect on Whiskers. Talley said, “We have another busy day ahead of us. The kittens will be helping me take pictures at the construction site today for the commemorative book of the project. They’re so excited. With their creative minds, I know they’ll be a big help.” Whiskers got out of bed slowly saying, “Wow! I can’t believe how stiff my legs feel after climbing up and down that forty-foot ladder into the quarry. I really need to get in shape. The kitties out there doing all the hard work certainly are in great condition, but I’m ready to take another crack at it.” Talley laughed and said, “Come on old cat, let me help you to the shower.” Whiskers picked Talley up into his arms in one fell swoop saying, “Who are you calling an old cat?!” Soon the shower was filled with mews and laughter.

This morning, Whitey, Orangie, Pearl and the kittens wanted to make a hearty breakfast for their hard working family. Construction work required a great deal of effort and endurance, so they wanted to make sure every kitty had fuel to burn. The menu would feature Steak and Eggs, shredded Leek Hash Browns, Biscuits with Honey Butter & Orange Marmalade, and Blueberry Compotes. Pearl was preparing Café Lattés, fresh Carrot Juice and hot chocolate for the kids. Tabitha, Liliana and Daisy were in charge of the Hash Browns and the biscuits. The kittens wanted to bake enough biscuits for their Uncles to take to the shelter kitties before they all left for the construction site. Angel Sylvia and Angel Lucy offered to take the biscuits to the shelters as soon as they were ready. The kittens were very grateful to their Aunties, rushing to get the biscuits, butter and marmalade packed and ready to deliver.

Whiskers and Talley came downstairs, greeted by the entire family already seated at the table. Whiskers pulled out a chair for Talley next to Flower, stopping to ruffle the fur on his little nephew’s head. Breakfast smelled delicious and there were compliments to the chefs from all around the table. Tabitha had asked to say grace this morning as the family joined paws.

To the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Tabitha sang this morning’s prayer.
♫ Thank you for the food we eat,
Thank you for the world so sweet,
Thank you for the birds that sing,
Thank you God for everything. ♫
“And please God, look after Neekah Boo and Wicket and all our furiends who need your help. Thank You dear Lord. Amen”

"That was beautiful Tabitha, and fun too!” Talley said to her pretty niece. Tabitha smiled with pride. The family was famished this morning. Whitey, Orangie, Pearl and the kittens couldn’t have asked for a better compliment than to see their family eat heartily.

Whiskers said (trying to speak in between bites), “I hope Neekah Boo and Wicket had a good nights sleep on their new heating pads. I’ll text Wicket later this morning to see how he’s doing today. Pete, when you speak to Neekah Boo later, ask her how she liked her new warm bed and let her know we’re thinking of her.” K. Pete nodded and said he was anxious to hear how she was feeling today too. Whiskers continued, “I received a message last night from Katie, Baron Monty’s fursister. Katie asked me if I would do the honor of joining her and Neelix in marriage! The wedding will be held on May 2nd in the mewsroom wedding chapel. I’m honored and overjoyed to be asked, but I’ve never performed a wedding ceremony before. I have to admit, I’m very nervous at such a major responsibility, but I’m flattered. Katie also asked me if I knew of any male kitten that might want to be their ring bearer. If you kitties have any ideas, let me know. If the wedding is May 2nd, that doesn’t give me much time to prepare, but I’ll do my best. If there’s one thing I’ve learn from all of you, just speak from the heart and everything will be fine.” Talley promised to help her husband. She said, “When you have something prepared, we’ll go over it together sweetheart.” Whiskers squeezed his wife paw appreciatively.

Talley mewed, “This morning Tabitha, Liliana and Daisy will be helping me take pictures at the construction site.” The kittens all nodded their heads eagerly. Raven and Ms. Murphy would be lending their cameras for the kittens to use. Flower sat quietly eating with a pensive look on his face. K. Pete noticed the change in the little skunk’s mood. K. Pete asked, “What’s on your mind Flower? Mealtime is the perfect time to share your thoughts with the family.” Flower said in a soft voice, “I want to see the buildings go up too. But I also want to finish building the closets for the kitties.”

Callie and Angel Maggie both chimed in at the same time. Angel Maggie looked at her brother and said, “If I may, Callie and I were planning on driving to the site this morning to check out the developments and see if the Castle Staff needed any help in the kitchens. We’d love to take Flower along with us and bring him back in plenty of time to work on his lovely armoires.” K. Pete said, “How does that sound to you buddy? Do you think you can work with that schedule?” Flower’s precious face was now just one big grin. He said in his strongest voice, “Yes sir Uncle Pete and thank you very much Auntie Angel Maggie and Auntie Callie!”

The family helped with the cleanup after another fine meal. Whitey, Orangie and Pearl would be staying home to work on the food for Friday’s Hockey menu. Whiskers, K. Pete, Talley and the kittens would go together on the shelter rounds and meet Angel Maggie, Callie and Flower at the construction site. Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy had already delivered the warm biscuits to the shelters and had sent a message to K. Pete saying they would be at the Castle.

As Pearl was putting warm jackets on her kids, the kittens asked Talley if they could take some birdseed with them to the site. Daisy said, “We’ve been seeing lots of birds outside and I bet they’re hungry. Mama told us the birdies are coming to welcome spring!” Angel Maggie went to the garage to fill some small burlap sacks with birdseed. Flower said politely to his Aunt, “Me too please Auntie Angel Maggie.”

Another day had begun for the family. Angel Maggie, Callie and Flower were already at the working site when Whiskers and the family arrived after finishing the shelter rounds. K. Pete offered to take his sisters, along with the kids, on a quick tour of the construction zone. He handed out safety helmets to his family, finding extra small ones for the kids. They looked adorable. Whiskers pointed them out to Talley, who quickly whipped out her camera, snapping shots of the precious moment.

Whiskers and Talley followed along on K. Pete’s tour with the family. Whiskers paused for a moment to kiss his beautiful wife, bumping safety helmets and then both bursting into laughter!

Sending you warm hugs and soft kisses my beautiful darling.

“I asked God why life’s like this. He gave me no answer. I asked why I’m still here. Again, He gave me no answer. I asked why I met you. He smiled and said, “So there’d be a reason for everything else.” ♥

Whiskers had just awakened from dreamland,
thinking about the wonderful day they all had yesterday, celebrating Talley’s 6th birthday. Whiskers was so happy he had been able to surprise his beautiful wife with a party. The shelter kitties loved Talley very much and they made the party an event to remember. Whiskers furrowed his brow thinking about Neekah Boo’s legs still giving her problems. He felt better knowing she would be seeing a specialist soon. Then there was the worrisome news about their furiend Wicket. Whiskers had received a message from K. Spongie that his brother Wicket had stopped eating and had slowed down considerably. Whisker’s eyes filled with tears just thinking about how worried Neekah Boo and Wicket’s Moms must be about their furbabies. Snuggled in his arms, Talley woke up sensing Whisker’s sadness. She intuitively knew he was thinking about their furiends. Talley kissed her husbands tears and mewed, “The best thing we can do for our dear furiends is keep praying for them and their families and letting them know everyday we are here for them.” Whiskers nodded and said, “I just feel so helpless sometimes. But you’re right sweetheart. We have to leave it in God’s hands. Whatever happens, I know He will stay by their side to comfort them.” Whiskers took Talley’s paw as they walked to the shower together.

This morning, Whitey, Orangie and the kittens were busy in the kitchen preparing Potato Pancakes with Apple Sauce, Sour Cream & Chives. Tabitha, Liliana and Daisy were busy fixing the side dishes, transferring the bacon, sausage and home fried potatoes to warming trays. Pearl was squeezing some fresh grapefruit juice and had some Apple Strudels baking in the oven. The kittens were still talking about their dinner last night, excited at having taken a tour of the kitchen. The kittens could hardly wait to start their own kitchen garden. Flower came into the kitchen offering to help set the table. Pearl smiled at her little helper and said, “Thank you son. It’s nice of you to lend a paw. Now don’t forget we are just staying for breakfast. We need to get back home and work on your school studies.” Flower nodded his head and said, “Yes Mama. Uncle Pete told me I was a smart boy and I don’t want to let him down.”

Flower asked K. Pete if he could say the prayer this morning. K. Pete nodded, knowing that kids often treat grace as an opportunity to talk about their concerns. It gives them a chance to show how we can communicate with God. The family joined paws, bowing their heads. Flower spoke softly,

“Thank you, God, for loving me.
Thank you for my family.
Help me to learn more each day
To be kind at work and play.
Please Lord, watch over Neekah Boo and Wicket, and bless all our furiends.
Amen.”

The family complimented Flower on his heartfelt prayer as he beamed with pride.

Today Whiskers, K. Pete, Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy would be going back to the construction site after the shelter rounds. Whiskers excitedly told his family about how K. Pete had showed him how to operate a crane. Whiskers said, “At first I was pretty nervous and my paws were sweating, but eventually I got the hang of it. I took it slow and careful, just like K. Pete instructed. The work is coming along nicely. Very soon, we’ll have to take all of you down to see the progress being made. You kitties will be amazed.”

Callie said, “Angel Maggie and I will be working on the menu for this week’s hockey games. All of us girls managed to get hundreds of Easter baskets assembled, so we’ll have plenty to take with us to the games for the hockey kittens and more than enough for all the shelter kittens. Flower raised his paw excitedly for permission to speak. Angel Maggie smiled and said, “What is it sweet boy?” Flower asked, “When do we get to color Easter eggs? My sisters said we need to get them ready for the Easter bunny so he can hide them!” Angel Maggie smiled and said, “We’ll have an egg coloring party on Saturday morning. That should give you kids enough time to paint lots of colorful eggs and my Angel Sisters and I will make sure the Easter bunny gets them.” Flower was very happy and satisfied with Angel Maggie’s answer.

Raven and Ms. Murphy were going into town to pick up a couple of orthopedic heating pads for their furiends Neekah Boo and Wicket. Raven said, “We saw several different styles on the internet, but we settled on one that is available for pick up today. It looks very plush and might offer our furiends some added comfort while they’re convalescing.” K. Pete said, “Thank you girls. That sounds great. I’ll be calling Neekah Boo this morning to find out how she’s doing and see if she is up for visitors today. If Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie don’t mind, we can fly by to visit Wicket too.” Whiskers chimed in, ‘That would be wonderful. I’ll call K. Sponge Bob to make sure it’s okay if we stop by.”

Another day was about to get underway. Talley told everyone she would be writing Thank You notes to all her furiends for the wonderful time she had on her birthday. She added, “Of course I won’t be forgetting to thank my family too! I had a glorious birthday and I love all of you so very much.” Flower said with a big smile, “We love you too Auntie Talley. I hope we can surprise you again next year.” Talley laughed and said, “I certainly was caught off guard, but I couldn’t have been happier.”

Each member of the family spoke compliments to the little chefs for another delicious meal. The kittens didn’t know what they liked the most; cooking or the compliments afterwards.

Whiskers squeezed Talley’s small paw tightly in his. Another blessed day was underway.

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

“Love is missing someone whenever you’re apart, but somehow feeling warm inside because you’re close in heart.”

Twelve powerful Harley Davidson motorcycles can be heard coming down the street. The Harleys have brightly coloured streamers tied at the back and balloons tied to each handlebar. Strains of “Get Your Motor Running” can be heard coming from Dame Zoe Monique's speakers. The gang consists of Dame Zoe Monique, Cyndee, Q. Lola, Ammie, Talley, Kali, K. Malachi, K. Winston, Coco,  Angel Mallow, Sooty and K. Thunderfoot. K.Malachi is leading and they are on a special mission this Spring day as they pull into Talley's driveway, get off their bikes and remove their helmets.  Dame Zoe Monique rings the bell and Talley, along with her Mom, answer the door. Dame Zoe gives Mom a big, furry kitty hug with lots of tender purrs. The Riders say, “We are here to celebrate your happy birthday.” The Hairballz start to sing “Happy Birthday to You.” “We give you hearty concatulations and this basket of kitty treats, catnip mice and Greenies. We hope we made your day a little brighter.” The Hairballz get back on their bikes and roll across her vote button. K.Malachi says “Let’s roll”.  Angels Doodlebug and Yum Yum are always with them, sprinkling Angel Dust, keeping them safe where ever the road may lead.

Happy Birthday from the Hairballz Rainbow Riders!

Dear Talley & Family,
Thank you so much for saying that I and my Princess Lady Ana looked wonderful in the frame of fame! The case of 1976 Dom Perignon was just over the top fantastic! Thank you SO very much! And thank you so much for the heart-felt toast you all gave us. You are so very kind.

I am enclosing a vote and wishes for a very blessed day.

Purrs & kitty kisses,
K.Malachi

Come visit me, K. Malachi & Princess Lady Ana.

Whiskers was relieved when he received
a text from Pearl right before him and Talley went to bed. It read simply, “Everything is a go!”
............
Whiskers was up bright and early, excited to be the first to wish his Talley a Happy Birthday. Talley opened her deep, emerald eyes, smiling when she saw her beloved husband looking at her with a broad smile across his face. Whiskers said, “Happy Birthday my precious wife! For me your birthday is just like another day. With you by my side, everyday is a celebration!” Whiskers gave his beautiful Talley a deep kiss. Talley mewed thank you with a lovely blush on her cheeks. Whiskers said, “We better get downstairs. I know the girls have a nice birthday breakfast planned just for you. I’ll scrub your pretty back if you scrub mine.” With that said, the two kitties in love started their day.

For Talley’ special day, Whitey & Orangie with the help of Pearl, Liliana, Tabitha and Daisy had printed out breakfast menus. Pearl and the kittens had set the table using Talley’s best china and crystal. Pearl showed her girls how to be very careful and how to set the place settings properly. The girls made the breakfast table look fit for a Queen or King. Lastly, the kittens placed the printed menus atop each plate setting. The menu read:
~~~~~
WARM WELCOME - Cinnamon Buns with Venetian Coffee or Hot Chocolate & Mimosas (with Champagne or Sparkling Juice)
ENTRÉE - Fancy French Toast with powdered sugar and served with maple syrup; sausage links and bacon.
SWEET SURPRISE - Chocolate Mousse and a fancy fruit kabob.
~~~~~
Flower was busy helping his Uncle Pete set up a table for all the presents. Flower asked if he could place the gift from him and his sisters on top. K. Pete replied, “Absolutely sweet boy. Here, let me pick up so you can place it right where you want it.” K. Pete lifted up the little skunk who was giddy with excitement.

Whiskers and Talley came downstairs, greeted with a chorus of ‘Happy Birthday Talley’ from her family. Talley hugged everyone before sitting down and remarking, “My goodness! The table looks exquisite.” The kittens were beaming with pride. Whitey, Orangie and Pearl help the kittens bring the food out, so they could all sit down to say Grace. The family joined paws and thanked God for another wonderful year with their Talley. They added prayers for all their furiends and their families in need. Breakfast was as delectable as it was entertaining. Talley thanked Pearl , the Kittens and her sisters for a pleasurable start to her birthday.

Flower looked at his Uncle Pete, waiting for the signal to bring the gifts to his Aunt Talley. K. Pete nodded at Flower with a smile. Flower jumped out of his seat to get the gift from him and his sisters. He politely placed it in Talley’s paws, giving her a quick hug before sitting back down. The kittens mewed, “We all worked on our gift for you Auntie Talley!” Talley opened the brightly colored box. Inside was a photo album, titled “Happy Birthday Aunt Talley! We Love You!” Talley turned the pages slowly, seeing photos of the family from the various events they had all recently attended, from the Coronation to the Groundbreaking Ceremony. There were photos of the family at the shelters, playing in the snow and even some of everyone sitting inside the house by the fireplace. It was magnificent. Talley could feel all the love and work the kids had put into creating it for her. Talley wiped a tear from her eye, gesturing to the kids for a group hug. They all eagerly jumped into her arms.

One by one, Talley opened her gifts, feeling her heart ready to burst with love for her family. K. Pete had gotten her a rare edition of poems by ‘U Tun Yin’, titled Wild Animals Of Burma. It was illustrated with numerous full page photographic plates and text illutrations. Talley commented, “I’m almost too afraid to touch it with my paws. It should be in a display case!” Finally, one box was left on the table. Whiskers brought his gift over to his precious wife. Talley untied the ribbon from the large box. She gasped when she opened it. Whiskers said, “I commissioned Chloe to create a quilt for you. I gave her the pictures I wanted on the quilt and, well as you can see, she created a work of art.” Talley laid the quilt carefully in the living room for all to see. The family was amazed at the intricate work Chloe had done. K. Pete said, “Chloe is quite the artist. You can almost feel the love radiating from it. Great job Whiskers. The pictures tell the story of your lives so far.” Talley doused her husband with hugs and kisses.

Whiskers mewed, “I have one more surprise, for all of us. I made reservations for dinner at a new French restaurant I discovered in the village. It’s called ‘Chez Panisse’. It’s a neighborhood bistro, named after Honoré Panisse, a character in Marcel Pagnol’s 1930s movie trilogy about waterfront life in Marseille (Marius, Fanny, and César), as an homage to the sentiment, comedy, and informality of these classic films. The restaurant has a fixed dinner menu consisting of three to four courses. The menu, which changes every night, is designed to be appropriate to the season and composed to feature the finest sustainably-sourced, organic, and seasonal ingredients including meat, fish, and poultry. Tonight they’ll be serving,”

• Fennel fritters with golden beet salad and spicy olive salsa
• Squab and borage agnolotti in brodo
• Grilled Elliott Ranch lamb rack, loin, and leg with mint, asparagus, and carrot-parsnip purée
• Meyer lemon ice cream and sherbet meringata with strawberries

“And not to worry; for the kids they’ll be serving Pizza with Spicy Sausage and Aged Pecorino and Almond-Stracciatella Ice Cream with Bittersweet Chocolate Sauce.”

“The restaurant has a cozy piano bar and small dance floor too. I made reservations for all of us tonight at seven p.m. sharp.” The family clapped their paws in anticipation.

Everyone still had their plans and chores for the day, so they all helped clean up the wrapping paper strewn around from opening the gifts and everyone helped clean the kitchen. Of course they wouldn’t hear of Talley and Whiskers helping, so Whiskers helped Talley take her gifts up to their room, so they could put on their warm jackets and go for a nice leisurely walk by the lake. The two lovebirds spent the day, just happy to be together. Soon it was time to head back home and get showered and dressed for a night out.

The girls all looked ravishing dressed in their new semi formal dresses from the groundbreaking ceremony. Whiskers, K. Pete, Mitch and Flower all looked dashing in their black and white suits. They decided to take two cars for everyone’s comfort.

The food and the staff at the restaurant were excellent. Flower and the kittens enjoyed themselves immensely and were very well behaved. Talley was overjoyed at the wonderful time she was having with her favorite kitties in the whole world. After a splendid evening of dining and the dancing, the family and their newly extended family, loaded into their vehicles for the short drive home. Mitch would be following K. Pete, so before they drove off, Whiskers asked Mitch to follow them. He said, “I promised Chloe we would stop at the boathouse. Chloe has a birthday gift for Talley.” Mitch replied “Lead the way buddy!”

The boathouse looked dark except for a tiny light shining from Chloe’s sewing machine. Talley said, “Why doesn’t Chloe turn on all the lights while she’s working? She could strain her eyes that way. I’ll have to talk to her about that. Knowing Chloe, she doesn’t want to waste energy.” The kitties parked their cars and headed inside with Whiskers and Talley in front. K. Pete was right behind them with Flower holding on tightly to his paw. Pete smiled, feeling the excitement in his little nephew’s body. Whiskers opened the door and mewed, “We’re here Chloe!” Suddenly all the lights went on in the boathouse, illuminating the crowd inside. Shouts of “SURPRISE!” echoed throughout the boathouse, startling Talley enough to jump into Whisker’s arms. “Happy Birthday Talley” all the kitties yelled. Whitey ran inside to the keyboards that had been set up for her. She began to play the Happy Birthday song while all the shelter kitties sang in their best voices...

♬ Happy Birthday to You
Happy Birthday to You
Happy Birthday Dear Talleyl
Happy Birthday to You.

From good furiends and true,
From old furiends and new,
May good luck go with you,
And happiness too. ♬

And many moreeee! ♪

Thundering applause filled the house! Talley was dumbfounded, still sitting in Whisker’s arms with her paws wrapped tightly around him. Tears started to stream from her eyes. Whiskers kissed his lovely wife and set her down. Chloe came up to hug her dear furiend saying, “I guess we really did surprise you! Cats sure do know how to keep a secret!” Talley was surrounded by her loving furiends, smothering her with hugs and kisses.

Flower and the Kittens took Talley’s arms and led her over to the table where Angel Maggie, Callie and Orangie were lighting six candles on a huge, scrumptious looking sheet cake. The cake almost covered the whole table. The crowd of kitties had gathered around and quieted down. Flower said, “Make a wish before you blow out the candles Aunt Talley!” Talley took a deep breath and blew the candle flames out. There was another roar of applause. Someone shouted out, “What did you wish for Talley?” Talley looked around the room with love in her eyes and said, “My wish has come true. Right here, right now with all of you! Thank you so much sweet furiends!”

Just then Raven & Ms. Murphy released a sea of colorful balloons from the ceiling. The two girls had set it up perfectly, high-pawing each other. The kittens were all mewing with delight! Angel Sylvie, Angel Lucy, K. Pete & Mitch had erected a small stage for the musicians in the house that wanted to play some tunes on their make shift instruments. It was turning into a real ‘Hoedown Throwdown’ affair. Soon every kitty was enjoying cake and punch and starting to dance in the aisles of the boathouse. The celebration was on!

Whiskers waited until he could get Talley alone for a moment. Up until now, she had been surrounded with her loving family and furiends, wishing her a Happy Birthday. Whiskers pulled Talley into his arms, kissing her softly and whispering, “I thank God for this day because it is the day you were born. Without you, my existence is meaningless. I love you sweet Tallulah. Happy Birthday, my love, my life!”

Sending you warm hugs and soft kisses on your special day. ♥

The delicious aromas of another wonderful
breakfast woke Whiskers from a deep sleep. He opened his eyes to find Talley still fast asleep nestled in his arms. Whiskers was already thinking about how much he would miss his beloved wife while his Mom was away visiting his GM, but he knew he wouldn’t really be gone, just silent for a few days. He knew it was enough to keep him going to have Talley in his heart and in his dreams. Whiskers was sorry the girl’s VFP hockey had lost their game last night, but he was glad to see them all in such good spirits after the game. Talley and her sisters enjoyed playing hockey with their furiends. Winning a game was just a supplementary perk.

Talley opened her beautiful emerald green eyes, kissing her husband good morning. Whiskers gave Talley a deep kiss. Whiskers said, “ I love you sweetheart. I have some good news. I received a very nice message from Neekah Boo last night. Her and Fatty had a wonderful time at the groundbreaking ceremony. She wanted to thank all of us, especially Pete, for being so sweet to her family. She did mention she was feeling a bit tired, but she’s trying to get lots of rest. We should call her later this afternoon to find out how she’s feeling today, if K. Pete hasn’t already. I know he is very concerned about her health.” Talley nodded her head and said, “We’ll all very concerned about Neekah Boo. Today I’m going to be helping Raven, Ms. Murphy, Callie and Angel Maggie put together some Easter Baskets for the shelter kittens and for the kittens at the hockey games on Friday. We’ll assemble a couple of extra special Easter baskets for Neekah Boo and her sister. Depending on how she is feeling, maybe we can pop over for a visit with Pete.”

“That sounds like a great idea sweetheart,” Whiskers said. “Whitey & Orangie asked me if I would drive them into the village this morning to the Farmer’s Market. The girls have a long grocery list and like to go to the market on Monday when it’s less crowded. I asked if Pearl and the kids wanted to go with us, but Pearl said the kids needed to do their schoolwork today. She gave me a list of things she wants me to pick for her.” Talley got out of bed and said, “Well my darling, we better shower and get dressed. I smell breakfast cooking and I hear your tummy starting to rumble.” Whiskers blushed, and then raced Talley to the shower. The sound of happy giggles filled their room.

Whitey & Orangie were fixing breakfast by themselves this morning. They were surprised how much they missed having their little helpers, Tabitha, Liliana & Daisy. The girls prepared warm and flaky breakfast croissants, stuffed with smoked ham, eggs and cheddar cheese. They would be serving it with crunchy granola and fresh fruit, topped with creamy blueberry yogurt. Orangie had several batches of healthy, Apple-Cinnamon Oat-Bran Muffins in the oven.

Orangie said they were chock full of vitamins, yet too yummy to be typecast as health food. Whitey set the table with fresh juice and was ready to fix cups of Espresso this morning for her family.

K. Pete was sitting at the table reading the newspaper. Orangie had just poured him a hot cup of espresso when Talley and Whiskers came downstairs. Whiskers said, “It smells great down here.” Orangie smiled and fixed them both a fresh cup. K. Pete said, “I’m going to meet Mitch at the shelters this morning to do our rounds. Mitch said he has already driven many of the cats to the construction site to begin work. After we finish our rounds, him and I will go to the site too.” Whiskers told his brother he would be up there later, after he took the girl’s grocery shopping. Talley told K. Pete about the message from Neekah Boo. K. Pete was glad to hear she was resting and planned to call her right after breakfast. He told Talley, “I’ll ask Neekah Boo when she thinks she’ll be up to having visitors, so we can deliver their Easter baskets.”

The family joined paws to say Grace and a prayer for all their furiends in need. Breakfast was served and enjoyed by all the kitties. Whiskers thanked the girls for his satisfied tummy. He said, “It sure is quiet at the table without Flower and the kittens. It’s remarkable how kids seem to brighten up any room. Just like this family does. I often wonder what my sisters and I ever did before all of you came into our lives. It’s just a vague memory now.” Whiskers took Talley’s delicate paw pressing it to his lips.

Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy volunteered to go with K. Pete on the shelter rounds and to help out at the construction site. Raven and Ms. Murphy had set up the family room for their Easter Basket project. Callie and Angel Maggie told K. Pete they would come to the construction site before noon and check on the lunch menu for the workers. Queen Angel Misty had arranged for the Castle Staff to provide food and refreshments for all the workers. K. Pete nodded and went to the office to call Neekah Boo before he left.

Talley walked Whiskers, Whitey and Orangie to the car, assuring the girls she would clean the breakfast dishes. Whiskers hugged Talley and said, “I know, I shouldn’t be thinking about it yet, but I’m already missing you.” Talley kissed her husband cheek, mewing, “We’ve never apart my darling. My heart is always with you.” Whiskers got into the car, not wanting Talley to see the tears in his eyes.

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

"Distance never separates two hearts that really care, for our memories span the miles and in seconds we are there. But whenever I start feeling sad, because I miss you, I remind myself how lucky I am to have someone so special to miss."

Whiskers and Talley awoke, snuggled tightly
in each other’s arms basking in the glow of their love for one another. Whiskers said, “I love you so much my darling. Yesterday was a day none of us will ever forget. The shelter kitties have a wonderful new life to look forward to and I couldn’t be happier for them.” Talley nodded and mewed, “It was so kind of Queen Angel Misty to knight Mitch at the ceremony and present little Flower with the Medal of Service. I know it will be a day those two never forget. I’m so proud of both them.” Whiskers said, “I was so happy Neekah Boo and Fatty were able to be there with us. K. Pete looks so happy when he is with Neekah Boo. She is such a kind and beautiful kitty. The two of them seem to be a perfect fit for one another. We need to keep praying for sweet Neekhah Boo to regain her health.”

Whiskers got out of bed to look out their bedroom window. He said, “Well, it’s not raining, but it looks very dark and cloudy. Maybe we could take a short walk by the lake today and see if the ducks have started to come back yet. I know Callie and Angel Maggie miss their feathered furiends and I’m sure vice versa.” Talley pulled on her robe, kissing her husband. Another day together was about to begin.

As Whiskers and Talley came downstairs, Whisker’s nose caught a whiff of cinnamon in the air. His tummy started to rumble, causing Talley to smile. The family was already sitting at the table enjoying their coffee, Flower sipping on his hot chocolate with whipped cream piled high into his tiny cup. It was a comical sight! K. Pete had given Flower a very elegant jewelry box to place his Medal of Service award, which Flower had with him at the table. Flower proudly showed it to his Aunt Talley and Uncle Whiskers as they sat down. Whiskers smiled at his nephew saying, “That’s a wonderful safe-keeping place for your medal. I know you wouldn’t want to misplace it.” Flower looked at his Uncle horrified. He uttered, “I would never lose my medal Uncle Whiskers. I love it too much. Just like I love all of you!” Flower’s eyes were welling up with tears. Whiskers hugged him and said, “I’m sorry little buddy. Don’t cry. I know you will guard your medal with life. I’ll even get you a small safe to keep all your precious treasures.” Flower’s eyes lit up and said, “You mean a safe like the pirates have in the stories Uncle Pete reads to us?” Whiskers ruffled the fur on his nephew’s head and said, “Exactly like that!” Flower clapped his paws, happy in the knowledge his cherished medal would be safe.

Whitey & Orangie were showing Liliana, Tabitha and Daisy how to prepare “Cinnabunnies”, by using a simple cinnamon roll recipe, shaping the dough into cute bunnies with frosted ears. The kittens were enthralled as they watched Whitey flatten a small piece of the dough with her paw for the bunny’s head. She then flattened another round piece, carefully cutting down the middle, almost to the edge, but not all the way. Whitey gently split the dough, keeping the bottom connected, to form the bunny’s ears. She then firmly pinched the dough ears to the head. Each of the kittens took turns creating bunnies until they had dozens of cookie sheets filled with bunnies. On each bunny head, they placed 2 raisins for the eyes, 1 raisin for the nose and 2 sliced almonds for the teeth. The bunnies baked to a lovely golden brown. The kittens had mixed small bowls with several colors of icing for the ears. The girls added their own special touch by adding candy sprinkles to the icing. Pearl helped her creative kittens fill a warming basket for the breakfast table and several more to take to the shelter kitties on the morning rounds.

Meanwhile, Callie and Angel Maggie prepared Scramble Eggs with ham and cheese, along with smoked sausage and potatoes on the side, while Orangie fixed some delicious smelling Venetian coffee and squeezed fresh orange juice.

The knock on the door was Mitch arriving just in time for breakfast. He had brought another beautiful bouquet of freshly picked flowers for Pearl. Pearl smiled at her dear furiend saying, “Thank you so much Sir Mitch. They’re lovely. Let me put them in water.” Pearl took the flowers, kissing Mitch on his cheek. The family welcomed Mitch with a chorus of “Good morning Sir Mitch!” Mitch smiled, wincing slightly at hearing himself called “Sir”. The family laughed with K. Pete saying, “Okay my furiend. We just had to get it out of our systems and we wanted you know how very proud we are of you.” Mitch smiled and sat down at the table. “I’m very thankful for the honor that was bestowed upon me by our Queen yesterday. I’m just having a hard time getting used to being treated like royalty. I’m just an ordinary Tom.” Talley spoke and said, “You are anything but ordinary Mitch.” The family all nodded in agreement as they joined paws for the morning prayer.

The family enjoyed their delicious breakfast, delighting in the adorable and scrumptious “Cinnabunnies”. Talley complimented the kittens on being such talented and creative chefs.

Whitey told everyone she wanted to set up a table for the kittens to do some egg coloring today since it was just a week before Easter. Whitey said, “If the weather permits, we can do it outside. And there’s no need for us to buy store-bought egg coloring kits. We can simply get creative by raiding the pantry for food coloring and white vinegar -- and start creating our own homemade batch of colorful Easter decorations that the kids can show off to furiends and loved ones!” Raven said, “That’s a great idea. We’ll invite the shelter kittens to come up here to the house and join in the fun. I’ll let them know when we go on our rounds.” Callie and Angel Maggie decided to make some deli sandwiches and homemade baked potato chips for the kids. Everyone was excited to begin another fun day.

Flower raised his paw, waiting to be called on to speak. K. Pete smiled at the polite little skunk saying, “What is it Flower?” Flower said, “I was just wondering, why do we color eggs for Easter?” Angel Maggie said, “I can answer that sweetie. Centuries before it became an Easter tradition, the egg was already the subject of folklore and superstitions in many cultures, and viewed as a symbol of renewed life and rebirth among ancient Romans, Chinese and Egyptians. Long ago it was believed that “All life comes from an egg”. Christians consider eggs to be “the seed of life”. Today, Easter is a “salute to spring” marking re-birth.” Callie added, “Almost like a birthday for spring.” Flower smiled and said, “Then I want to color a lot of eggs and give spring a happy birth-day welcome!” Everyone smiled as they all helped to clear the table. Whiskers kissed Talley as he helped her with her jacket. He said, “That Flower is such an entertaining and inquisitive little guy. It’s going to be fun watching him and the kittens grow up.” Talley nodded as the two kitties in love walked outside with the family ready to begin their daily shelter rounds.

Talley awoke, reaching out across the bed
for her husband, finding his spot empty. She mewed, frantic for a brief moment. Whiskers was standing by their bedroom window, quickly rushing back to bed to hug his beloved wife. He said, “I’m right here sweetheart. I was trying to see what the weather looks like outside, but it’s still too early to tell. Talley said, “I hope we’ll get a break from the rain for the groundbreaking ceremony today.” Whiskers held Talley tightly in his arms saying, “I think we might have to come prepared with our umbrellas. Last night at the hockey game, several of our furiends said they were getting quite a bit of rain at their homes. I know it’s coming our way, but we’ll just have to play it by ear. Like K. Pete said, the groundbreaking will happen today, rain or shine. We just might have to move the reception inside.” Whiskers continued to hold Talley in his arms, relishing the feel of her tiny body in the morning. He said, “I’m sorry both KCK and VFP lost their games yesterday, but you girls sure played tough. It’s always a shame to me that someone has to lose. You all looked like winners out there on the ice.” Talley smiled at her husband. She knew he always tried to make the best of any situation and she loved him so very much for that. Whiskers kissed his beautiful wife and said, “We better shower and get ready for our busy day. I can’t wait to see you in your pretty new green dress, although the sight of you is always distracting to me.” Talley blushed as Whiskers kissed her and said, “That’s okay. It forces me to try to concentrate harder at the task at hand.” Whiskers held out his paw for his beautiful wife, leading them both into the shower.

Whitey & Orangie had helped the kittens, Liliana, Tabitha and Daisy, prepare breakfast the night before, so all the work would be done a day ahead. The kittens had chosen to prepare a Hash Brown Casserole with Bacon, Onions, and Cheese.
They simply had to pop it into the oven for thirty minutes and it would be ready to serve. This gave the kittens plenty of time to set the table and prepare some Raspberry-Cream Cheese Muffins to serve with the coffee and cocoa. Whitey & Orangie helped the girls set the muffins in a basket for the table and pack the others for delivery to the shelters. Whitey took a small taste praising the kittens. “These are incredibly delicious and they smell amazing. The muffins remind me of a light raspberry cheesecake.” Orangie took a small bite, nodding her head in agreement. Liliana, Tabitha and Daisy were smiling from ear to ear, always appreciating compliments on their cooking, especially from their Aunts’ Whitey & Orangie.

The breakfast table was set as the family started to arrive, one by one. All the girls looked ravishing in their brightly colored dresses and the boys always looked handsome and distinguished wearing their Feline Force Uniforms. Whitey passed out oversized cloth napkins so no one would unintentionally stain their fine attire. Mitch stopped by for coffee, since he would be meeting with Queen Angel Misty before the ceremony having breakfast with her. He was obviously nervous, so he wanted to stop by for some encouraging words from Pearl and K. Pete. Mitch looked handsome in a dark gray suit sporting a light gray double-breasted vest with a black tie. Pearl had picked the outfit for him so he looked the part of a strong, community leader. After their jovial good mornings, the family joined paws to recite their morning prayer. K. Pete added thanks to God for their newly extended family and for making the dream of the upcoming construction program a reality. There was a heartfelt “Amen” mewed all around the table. Mitch finished his coffee and took a nervous bite of his cheese Danish, before heading out the door to meet with the Queen. He certainly didn’t want to be late. Pearl walked Mitch to the door, kissing him good bye and wishing him luck.

The excited conversation at the table was of the ceremony. Flower and his sisters were anxious to get to the Castle grounds early, so they could set up the welcome banners and gold ribbon they had made for the special event. Flower had no idea he would be playing a big part in the ceremony. Unbeknownst to Flower, the Queen would be awarding him a special medal for his service to the realm. K. Pete was very excited for his little nephew. Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy would first be going to pick up their dear furiends, Neekah Boo and Fatty, who would be attending the event with the family. Then the Angels would come back home to help Angel Maggie, Callie, Whitey, and Orangie transport the shelter kitties to the Castle grounds. Angel Maggie and Callie had already spoken with the Castle Staff, ensuring the food for the reception afterwards was prepared and ready to be served.

The Castle Staff told the girls everything was under control for the event, including decorations and ample seating. They even had an emergency makeshift awning, ready to go up at a moment’s notice in case of rain.

Breakfast was a hit with everyone. The family thanked the kittens for another wonderful start to a busy morning. Pearl helped her girls clear the table, putting the dishes in the dishwasher for now. It was time to for all of them to start their busy day.

Last evening, Raven and Ms. Murphy had printed out sections of the architectural drawing of the Apartments and Trade School building. They had pieced it together, creating a small billboard depicting the finalized facilities, a dream that would soon be a reality. Raven and Ms. Murphy had Whiskers and K. Pete carefully load it into the SUV so they could easily set it up by the site for all the kitties to see what was in store. Flower followed his Uncle Pete around as they packed their belongings, lending a paw to help wherever he could. Suddenly Flower remembered, “We can’t forget the ceremonial scissors!” Pearl handed her son a wooden box. Inside was a pair of gold plated scissors that Chloe had lent them to use at the event. Chloe considered them to be a “good luck charm”, given to her by K. Pete and girls when they gave her the sewing machine. With everything packed ready to go, Whiskers helped Talley, Raven, Ms. Murphy, Pearl and the kids into the SUV. Whiskers ran back inside the house, almost forgetting to bring the umbrellas (just in case). Flower hopped in next to his Uncle Pete who was driving, and they headed down the road to the Castle. Callie and her sisters were loaded into the truck, off to the shelters to begin shuttling their furiends to the event.

At the Castle, the groundbreaking site was abuzz with activity. The Castle Groundsmen had set up the small staging area and podium for the speakers and the restaurant staff was busy setting tables with hot drinks and pastries for everyone while they waited for the ceremony to begin. Whiskers and K. Pete unloaded the billboard as Raven and Ms. Murphy directed their brothers where to place it. The girls wanted it by the stage so all the kitties could see it as they arrived. Mitch was just coming out from the Castle, waving to Pete and Whiskers. He yelled, “Wait, let me help. The billboard looks fantastic.” The boys took out their ladders and hammers, commencing to drive the tall stakes into the ground. Raven and Ms. Murphy stood back to watch, nodding their heads in satisfaction. Talley found seats for the family in the front row, seating Pearl and the kittens towards the end so Flower could easily make his way to the stage when called up. Neekah Boo and Fatty had just arrived with Angels’ Sylvie and Lucy-Fur. The girls all excitedly took their seats with the family.
