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

sleepover tomorrow night/water fun games wed
we're happy that at least some will try to make it as we've got a bunch of stuff cooked and can cover some of the main meals and all of the snacks, but always like you say can use the help. if you want a special sports/water day if it's warm enough for the water part that is next month just say the word and instead of the resort we can add another day onto here like we did late last month with 3 days of fun and two sleepovers, otherwise we can try to make the sleepover day tuesday the added on sports or water fun day, what do you think? as you know janet's gonna be in vermont tomorrow shopping some and meeting joy from the green mountain gang for lunch and a little walking around manchester center. their plans might get boomed or rained on expecting boomers up there so janet says she might cut things short and just do a few stores and shops and call it a day after lunch with joy so she won't have to face the bad trip back along 9 to brattleboro and home on 91. as down this way we'll be sunny and lower 80s a bit warmer now than predicted. see some of ya later on and we'll be back on thurs same time frame as this morning bright and early! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hey, Talley!
Hedley here for the Pawty Animals. Those are pawsome ideas, Talley. Especially the one about paper shreds. Mom saves those for packaging filler, but she will give our shelters a call to see if they can use the stuff. She has a shopping bag full of paper shreds.

Here's an idea from us. Our shelters are always in need of gently used bath towels. They are used as bedding for kitties, and for drying off doggies after baths. Another site that donates to animal causes is Coupaw. Mom clicks on Freekibble and the GreaterGood sites everyday.
Yesterday's poem made Mom cry. She tries so hard to keep the clowder she cares for, healthy and happy.

Many purrs and a vote, Hedley

Hi Talley
That is a wonderful idea to donate as a gift idea! So many could use the help.
Yep, once Mom gets moved into their new house, she plans on adopting a shelter cat. There are so many sweet kitties that just want a forever home of their own and people to love and love them.
Here is vote #3 with a pot of catnip tea and lemon scones to relax with.

Hi Talley!
Thanks for another great blog with more ideas on how to help more of the shelters and the homeless pets. I'm not sure if our shelters or rescues take in the smaller animals, but saving the shredded papers for them is a good idea that Mom never even thought about. We are a small town and Mom will have to do some research about the smaller animals. The idea of forgoing gifts and giving to the shelters is another great idea. No one in our family exchanges gifts, anymore, so that will not be an idea for us, but great for those who do.

Your catpaign is off to a great start and Mom is leaning of ways to help that she hadn't thought of. Thanks so much for making this your theme.

Well, dear furiend, we're leaving you vote #3 for your COTM along with wishes for a blessed evening and sweet dreams. We'll see ya, tomorrow. Love ya!

Hi Talley
More great ways to help shelters in today's blog. Mom always urges everyone to adopt not shop, when it comes to adding a new furbaby to a family. We also like the idea of forgoing gifts for Christmas and birthdays and asking people to give to the humane society instead. :) Leaving you vote #3 tonight!

HEY TALLEY!
HEY GIRL! HOW'S YOUR 3RD DAY ON THE OL' CATPAIGN TRAIL? HEY THATS A GREAT IDEA THAT ZIGGY AND HOT ROD HAVE ABOUT THE SHREDS FOR BEDS! MOM USES OUR CAT CARRIERS AND PUTS EMPTY BIG DRY CAT FOOD BAGS IN THE BOTTOM FOR THE OUTSIDE KITTIES. THEN COMES THE AFGHANS AND SOFT BLANKIES. THERE IS ALWAYS A USE FOR SOMETHING.
I'LL TRY TO COME UP WITH SOME GOOD IDEAS MYSELF.

AND GOOD THINKING FROM SPANKY JACK! CHECK YOUR LOCAL RESCUE OR SHELTER FOR AN OLDER KITTY OR ONE THAT ISN'T EASILY ADOPTED. EASY FOR US TO SAY CUZ WE'VE NEVER DONE THAT. THEY ALL JUST FIND OUR HOUSE! WE ARE DOWN TO 23 NOW THAT NAPPERS, ELMIE AND SPENCER HAVE CROSSED THE BRIDGE. OUT OUTDOOR KITTY ICARUS HAS GONE FISHIN ALMOST 3 WKS AGO BUT MOM JUST KNOWS THAT SOME NICE PURSON IS TAKING CARE OF HIM LIKE SHE HAS SO MANY OTHERS.

WHATTA GREAT IDEA FOR YOUR DADCAT MIKEY TO DONATE TO THE SHELTER THAN HAD A FIRE! I TOLD YOU MY MOM VOLUNTEERS, DIDNT I? AND WE SENT THE HSUS $12.00 A MONTH. IT'S NOT MUCH BUT WE ARE PRETTY POOR AND LIVE FROM SSI TO SSI CHECK. WE COME FIRST, MOM COMES SECOND. WE LIKE HOW WHEN SOME OF OUR CC FRIENDS PASS ON, THAT WE ALL DONATE TO THE SHELTER OF THEIR CHOICE, LIKE MOM KAREN AND MOM PATTY.

Stopping by to greet you and give you a vote. Those are all good ideas! Mom tells all who will listen about never buying, but adopting.

♥ Mom plucked the old blossoms off the hanging plants then the got the mower out to mow the small front yard then she got the gas edger and made the yard look all groomed up!!!!

♥ When mom came back in the house, I meowed at her on the couch so she gave me some mom time then it was Whyskrs turn. After that it was noon so mom went into the Girls' room (Sylvr Tuff #160205, Kittzi #160203, Teakee #25544 & Sausha #22506) to feed them some dry food. Teakee wasn't interested in eating. Sausha still eats her dry food good, but quit eating her Prescription Z/D can food so mom put in a call to Dr. Nancy to see if there's a replacement Sausha can try. Mom will hear from Dr. Nancy on Tuesday since she has today off.

♥ Dad has a 3:00pm appointment on Tuesday afternoon with his Dr. and hopefully to go over his bloodwork so mom will be taking him there to hear what's up which means we probably will not be on CC.

HI Talley,
I am here with a COTM vote for you. I apologize for missing a few days. Mom had a lot happening over the week-end. I love the idea of donations to your local Shelter instead of giving gifts. We donate to our Shelter throughout the year, anytime we can. We give food, litter, treats, newspapers to line the cages, gently used sheets, chair cushions from patio furniture for the doggies to lay on as well as gently used kitty toys etc. It gives us great joy to help those precious kitties and doggies. Have a great evening and I am looking forward to your catpaign. Purrs and a hug, Mittens...

Talley walked out of her dressing room
and Whiskers let out a low whistle. Talley smiled and twirled around for her husband. Talley wore a sleeveless white cotton sundress with colorful polka dots in every color of the rainbow. Whiskers smiled and said, “You look good enough to eat my love!” Whiskers was wearing his nice black linen shorts with a white cotton short sleeved shirt. The two kitties in love looked purrfect together. Talley was ready to continue her catpaign work with her husband by her side. Since the sun was shining this morning, the two kitties decided to take their work outside on the patio. Whiskers was still in the planning process for the Christening this Sunday, so they both had a busy day ahead of them.

The family had already taken their seats at the dining room table, sipping coffee and hot chocolate while Whitey and Orangie fixed breakfast. Whitey came out of the kitchen to take orders on how each of them wanted their eggs prepared. She said, “Orangie and I are keeping breakfast light since we all over indulged yesterday on Talley’s delicious apple pie.” Whiskers chimed in, “If I had one particular pleasure to allow myself to enjoy, it would definitely be eating my fill of Talley’s heavenly apple pie.” Whiskers planted a soft kiss on his beautiful wife’s cheek.

Everyone nodded, giving Whitey their egg preference, from over-easy to scrambled. She took the orders back to Orangie and in no time at all, the girls came out carrying plates and platters of crisp bacon, sausage links and buttered toast.

After joining paws and saying grace, they family said an extra prayer for the Hockeytown kitties Mom Linda and all the kitties and their families that were in need of an extra prayer.

As they all enjoyed their meal together, Thomas stopped eating for a moment and said, “I can’t stop thinking about the senseless killing of Cecil, the Zimbabwean lion who was killed on a trophy hunt last month. It’s unthinkable to me why a human would purposely set out to murder such a majestic creature and have the audacity to call it a sport!”

Everyone shook their heads sadly. K. Pete said, “It’s a tragic example of how cruel and thoughtless some humans can be. If anything good is to come for this atrocity, it might be that now this ugly practice where wealthy humans spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on globetrotting to slaughter some of the world’s rarest animals, will be under the spotlight and hopefully laws will be passed to end this unthinkable enterprise.”

(CONTINUED FROM ABOVE) ♥
Whiskers nodded and added, “When I first heard about how the human lured Cecil from his protected area and shot him with an arrow, I thought it must be a horrible mistake. But as the story gained momentum and more details came out, I just couldn’t believe there are humans that actually kill and make trophies of living creatures. My first thought was how would that human like it if we beheaded a few of them and hung them on our walls? But Talley was quick to remind me that that would only put me on the same low level as the trophy hunters. Of course my sweetheart is right. But I still think we must publicly shame the people who feed their egos and fill their dens with the blank stares of dead animals.”

K. Pete said, “You’re right Whiskers. The killing of African elephants, rhinos, lions and other imperiled and majestic creatures must end. It’s going to be up to the government and wildlife organizations to fully condemn the senseless headhunting of animals for self-gratification. At least now the curtain has been opened to expose this shameful industry.”

Thomas nodded sadly and said, “Ralph, Rosie and all the kids are already doing a book report on the horrific incident to share at school, once school begins.” Ralph and Rosie nodded their heads. Ralph said, “Flower and I have started to put together a video presentation, explaining what trophy killing is and we’re hoping the kids will have more ideas on how we can help put an end to it. My Dad always tells me, the key to solving any problem is Educate first.” Thomas beamed proudly at his little boy.
Whiskers smiled and said, “Whenever I am overwhelmed by all the hate in the world, I take a look at our kids and they fill me with optimism and hope that someday the world will be a better place to live- because of them.”

Whiskers squeezed Talley’s delicate paw and said, “And I’m proud to say my beautiful wife is making a huge splash in the CC empire, renewing everyone’s attention to the many less fortunate animals, right here in our very own cities.”

The family gave their future Queen a round of applause! Whiskers smiled proudly at his beloved wife.

Sending soft kisses and hugs to my precious wife Talley.

Endearment

Divine is your smile

For all of my time

All the world's rubies,

to me are worthless
compared to your touch

Even the stars,
set like diamonds above
will not endure
as long as our love.

Hi Talley
Congrats on being our next COTM nominee. We are enjoying your catpaign. We support many kitty causes, but the one nearest & dearest to our heart is our local shelter, Brookhaven Animal Rescue League (BARL). BARL is run strictly on donations & by volunteers. They have many fundraising events throughout the year, with the best one being the Celebrity Dinner & Auction. This even usually raises over $10,000 each year.

All shelters are usually grateful for most donated cleaning supplies especially bleach, paper towels, old sheets & towels. Many shelters also can use office supplies like copy paper, photo paper, etc.

Until our PawPaw got so sick, he would rake the pine straw in his yard for the doggies at BARL to snuggle in during the cold weather.

Well, keep up the good work on the catpaign trail! Here's our first COTM votey for you. We are not online on the weekends.

Purrs to you,
K Casper Todd

Hi Talley! That's how our tradition
of giving to Best Friends started, many years ago. Mom was looking for an animal related gift that wasn't overly expensive that she could give her brothers and their wives and did a search online. At that time Best Friends was still in its early years, so Mom bought cat sponsorships for family members and printed out the information about Best Friends. From there it just grew into something the whole family enjoyed doing. The gift sponsorships are a bit more expensive now but Mom buys them every year for relatives in addition to what she gives every month. :-) Hugs, KC and the Zoo Crew

We're back.....
It seems like it's been furever since we got to meow with anyone on CC so we're glad that things have finally calmed down around here so we can catch up.

Since I missed meowing last month I made sure to push my fursisters aside so I could assume control of the keyboard for the month...MOL!
The kids head back to school on Friday (woohoo...MOL) so mom & dad spent the weekend shopping for clothes & school supplies that we know they'll need. They always seem to need other things once schools starts too though so I can foresee another weekend trip coming up. When we left CC I'd told you about a stray mommy cat & her 3 kittens. Well they all went back to where they started from but we've been seeing them in the neighbor's pasture. Hopefully that means mommy thinks it's safe for her babies now. We're not kittenless though because Lacie WAS pregnant when she arrived & we have 2 little furballs running around on the front porch. We had 3 but one became an angel over the weekend but we're not sure why. The two that are left (1 boy & 1 girl) are active little monsters. The boy is named Sundance & the girl is Libby. They're a month old now so they're starting to eat real food & are now interested in the ball toys mom took out for them.
JJ is doing fine but thinks he needs to stay inside all of the time even though mom is having him go out during the daylight hours. She's still letting him in at nights but since he's decided to hide anytime Bartholomew is around he'll probably be staying out all of the time again really soon. He's terrified of the kittens (MOL) but he'll get used to them.
All of us girls are doing fine...although we have had a couple of spats recently. It's mainly Miss Piggy trying to test her limits with the older cats (Trixie & Fluffinella are her main targets) but so far she's found out she can only push so far before paw whacks start...MOL!
Well I've got to run for now but I'm thrilled to be back in action & will blog two or three times a week if at all possible. Thanks for being patient with us while we took a reprieve last month!

Big paw hugs,
Patches & NICE Crew

P.S. Monkey will do her adopty day thank you blogs from July 26th tomorrow but we wanted to get back into the 'swing' of things first. Purrs......

Hi Talley
That is so cool that your Dad takes pictures of the shelter kitties, it really does help them find a home when people can see a nice picture on the shelter's website!

I get to leave the family vote today because I'm the only one of us who's ever done time in a shelter. They have a really good no-kill one here and that's where I spent 6 weeks after being picked up as a stray. The shelter was just gettin' started back then, but I'm sure grateful I ended up in the kind of shelter that will keep you for 6 weeks! The one they took over from, 72 hours tops (shudder).

Oh, all the great times I woulda missed! -- A. Mallow

Hi Talley
Aunt M was crying too when she read the "Stray's Prayer." I can see why your Dad always gets tears in his eyes when he reads it. It is so sad that there are so many homeless animals. I wish we were rich so we could take them all in!

Sending you a vote with wishes for a great day. Purrs and hugs, Spanky
