Q Talley COTM SEPT 2015 - Fall Is In The Air!

About Me

Active within 1 Day

Hi! My name is Q Talley COTM SEPT 2015 - Fall Is In The Air!

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: 8 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

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Yes sweetheart, tell your Dad that the stuffed Cornish Hens were a big hit with Abarna and Ganesh. Abarna said she felt like she was celebrating Thanksgiving! I reminded my Mom of the delicious Raisin Bread Pudding with rum sauce that Angel Maggie made for us once when we had Cornish Hens, so my Mom made a note of that to perhaps make for Thanksgiving in November. All this talk of food makes me hungry for your scrumptious apple pie my love! My Mom went to ‘skinnytaste.com’ like your Dad suggested and she copied the Butternut Squash Noodle recipe. She also printed out the recipe for “Skinny Bolognese.” Yum! Our Dad and neighbors are in for a real treat!

The temp here in San Jose is 102 degrees at 2 p.m. and it will peak at around 4 p.m. The weatherman posted a heat advisory, warning humans to watch over their kids AND pets. It’s a very dry heat and the sun feels very hot when outside. Mom had the rare opportunity to trap our outside furiend Scamper while he was catnapping in the large pet carrier in the garage this morning. SO you guessed it! Mom brought Scamper inside the house where she has him in George’s room upstairs with a doggie gate to keep him contained to the room. All of us kitties have checked him out, peeping through the gate and we’re happy to report only Whitey hissed at him. The rest of us just sniffed and ran back to our various cat beds. Mom knows Scamper could easily scale the doggie gate, but so far he seems content in the room. He seems to like the big, folded up futon that is stored in the far corner of the room. He probably feels safest there. Mom still hasn’t figured out how she’ll get Scamper outside again, but she’ll worry about that later. Mom closes the bedroom door when she checks on our neighbor Abarna, and so far Scamper has been fine.

I have to silence my love meows to you for now my love, but you know you are always in my dreams. I almost forgot...we all got a big kick out of the adorable little opossum that your Dad saw eating kibble in your yard. My sisters and I all meowed, “Hi Paulie Jr.!” Hee, hee! He reminded us all of our very own Paulie Jr!

I love you my precious. I’m sending soft kisses and loving hugs to you, along with a quote that will make your pawrents smile.

“Without my pets, my wallet would be full, my house would be clean, but my HEART would be empty.” =^.^=

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
We can smell some delicious aromas coming from our kitchen my love. Reminds me of our kitchen when Angel Maggie and Callie are cooking. Mom is making Cornish Game Hens with wild rice pecan stuffing. She remembers from our stories that that was the first scrumptious meal your Dad prepared for your Mom, thusly winning her over easily! Mom thought Abarna and Ganesh would enjoy it for a nice Sunday dinner and we already know our Dad loves it. MOL!

Our temps are supposed to hit the triple digits today through Wednesday, then hopefully start cooling down. We shall see. Mom has the house all closed up for the A/C and she watered the backyard this morning so it will stay cooler for our outside furiend Scamper. He is already catnapping under his favorite bush.

Our Mom has been shirking her duties as our official blogger. We just might have to replace her. MOL! Mom tries to help out with our neighbor Abarna as much as she can. Abarna fell down in her bathroom late yesterday, trying to do stuff on her own, but she is okay. She hurt her right arm and shoulder, but nothing sprained or broken. Today Mom helped Abarna take a nice warm bath in the bathtub which made her feel a lot better.

I love you sweet Talley. You are the first and last thought in my mind every day, and in between my dreams of you keep me going.

Sending soft kisses and hugs to my precious Tallulah. ♥

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Oh sweetheart, it was a wonderful, happy surprise to see Bobby, Inky, Storm, Charlee, Lizzie and Aria in the spotlight today! Imagine being honored as Cats of the Day after only a couple of days! Your sweet Dad did a fantastic job with their CC page and I can tell all our furiends just loved it. My sisters and I were doing a happy dance for the precious kitties today.

I apologize for not meowing at you yesterday my love. Our Mom is going to San Diego the weekend of October 15th to attend her niece’s wedding. The ceremony and reception are being held at a beautiful place called “Bella Terrace Estate,” so Mom spent yesterday out shopping for a pretty mew dress. It’s been a while since Mom has been out shopping for fancy clothes, so she was gone most of the day, leaving us to fend for ourselves yesterday. That’s okay...my sisters and I catnapped in the window beds and from the bay windows, we could keep an eye on Scamper, who was sleeping in his cathouse out front. Mom did bring home something for us too. She bought a Jackson Galaxy Comfy Clamshell Cat Bed. It’s very soft and you can lay it out flat or pull the drawstring around the bed and it turns into a pocket bed. Right now we are all still curious and very wary of it, but my sister Callie finally took the plunge and laid down on it for a short nap. Guess Callie has dibs on it!

Now Mom is trying to help me catch up on my CC blogs. Did I tell you how much our neighbor Abarna and her son loved your Dad’s recipe for Asian Mango Cabbage Slaw?! Well they absolutely loved it. My Mom stopped at the Farmer’s Market that sets up every Wednesday nearby our home and she got all fresh fixings so we can make again. Be sure to thank your sweet Dad and give him a big hug.

I hope your weather has settled down some my love. I wish you were here with me so we could catnap in the sun together. I’ll just close my eyes and you’ll be right next to me. I love you sweet Talley, my beautiful Magic Queen.

Sending soft kisses and hugs to my darling Tallulah, from your Whiskers

Hi Q. Talley and HRR!
I must apologize for being so late with my thank you notes for my 23rd birthday on the 15th. Mom hasn't been able to help me with them, but I finally got her to sit down tonight. I really appreciate your visit and the Happy Birthday wishes you offered and especially your friendship. I had a very good day with a great pawty up here in the clouds and it was made special because you were there! Thank you for all the goodies, too! I'm leaving you a vote and wishes for a very blessed evening and sweet dreams. Love ya!

Lots of angel kitty kisses, hugs and purrs,

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Oh sweetheart, I too envision us as Richard Collier and beautiful Elise McKenna. I can see myself as the awkward, love struck bloke who becomes obsessed with an enchantingly beautiful woman. It reminds me that together, my love, we are one eternal flame for all of eternity. When I gaze into your emerald eyes, I can’t help but remember the first time I laid eyes on my beautiful Magic Queen. At the time, we were just strangers, and we never would have admitted that instant connection we both felt. I’ll be furever grateful to K. Pete for bringing us together - for at that moment in time, I knew you would be my endless love, furever a part of my soul.
(Whiskers wipes the happy tears from his face.)

Oh yes my love, if our families were neighbors, I know they would be the best of friends! It didn’t surprise us at all that your Dad had almost all of the ingredients for the Thai Chicken Curry recipe. His pantry must be stocked just like the pantry Angel Maggie and Callie are so proud of. Mom is delighted your pawrents enjoyed the recipe. Mom went to the market this morning so she can try out your Dad’s Asian Cabbage Mango Slaw. It sounds delicious and just the type of food that she knows Abarna and Ganesh will love. Ganesh made a delicious Chinese Chicken salad once for Mom and Abarna, and he whipped it up in no time at all, right as my Mom watched. It was heavenly and Mom will get the recipe so she can share it with your pawrents.

I’m sorry you and the kitties had to suffer through another scary storm. I wish I was there to hold you close and comfort you from the frightening thunder and lightening...although, I think you would be comforting me too! On the rare occasions when we have had weather like that, we usually head for cover under Mom and Dad’s bed. It warmed my heart to hear that Bobby, Inky, Storm and the Girls found a safe and loving refuge with your dear Mom. Storm sounds like he is quite a character, acting as a furry nightstand for your Mom’s Kindle. What a delightful picture that must have been to see! If only all feral kitties could be as lucky as yours, to have found such a wonderful home.

Hee, hee, hee! So Henri didn’t want to get his fur wet! Your Dad is so sweet to deliver food to him and Beauty. Beauty sounds a lot like Whitey. After the three years now that Whitey has been inside with us, she still hisses at our Dad...and Dad is afraid of her. He’ll stop in his tracks if they run into each other and call out for Mom to come and get Whitey. Mom laughs and tells Dad that Whitey senses his fear and that scares her too- that’s why she stands her ground and hisses at him. Mom has gotten Dad to kneel down and blink his eyes slowly at Whitey as he stares at her and talks softly. (Whiskers chuckles!) Mom knows eventually Whitey will come around. Baby steps!

Okay my precious, I better let Mom start fixing that yummy mango slaw. We have been having very warm weather here the past few days, so Mom has all inside the house so that Scamper can have the backyard. It’s always much cooler and shadier there. We like to watch Mom when she cooks in the kitchen, knowing we’re bound to get a nice treat. I think I can smell some chicken simmering on the stove with our names on it. MOL!

I love you my darling. Yours furever, Whiskers ♥

Sending soft kisses and comforting hugs to my beloved Tallulah.

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
It seems like a lifetime since my last love meow to you my sweet. I didn’t want you to worry. My Mom has been spending time bouncing back and forth next door, to help out her friend Abarna while she recuperates from her illness. This weekend my Mom took the DVD “Some Where In Time” over to Abarna’s house so she could watch it. Abarna and Ganesh had never seen the movie and they both loved it. Later when Mom came home, Dad played the beautiful song from the movie on his piano. We all enjoyed it immensely. I thought of you while my Dad played the lovely music. I closed my eyes and my beautiful Magic Queen was right by my side.

I have to leave now my love. Mom got a great deal on a rib roast this weekend. She is cooking it with fresh carrots and red potatoes for our family and Abarna’s this evening. This weekend, Mom made the delicious eggplant recipe your Dad shared with her. It was so good! Dad loved it too! Give your Dad a big hug for us. He has the best recipes and they’re always so healthy!

I love you sweetheart, always and furever. I’m going to close my eyes now so I can dream of you. ♥

Sending soft kisses and loving hugs to my precious Talley.

When all the songs are over
and all the words have been said

The sun grows dim across the sky
and the world prepares for bed

I often take a moment now
to view the skies above

And whisper to God a simple prayer
to thank Him for your love.

You sure DID have me surprised when you told me to go home early, I thought maybe I messed up on the ride or something! And then SURPRISE, there you all were!

My special day started with loves & cuddles from my Mom. She's off work and it's pouring rain outside, so she gets to stay home with us ALL DAY. She opened up a can of some really stinky tuna food and Mikey, Evie & I each got some for a special treat.

Now all my pals from the Hairballz are here, my friend Zippy brought me a rockin' Ladybug cake and later on we are going flyboarding ... (picture in my gallery) if you dare! Thanks for joining the fun! -- Moji Blackbear

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Yes my precious love, your Dad’s recipe for Lemon Mushroom Chicken and Zucchini Zoodles was a big hit with our neighbors AND our Dad, of course. Mom always has to laugh at Dad when he eats Zoodles. He thinks it’s okay to eat a lot more since they are made from zucchini, but Mom is there to remind him to only eat until his tummy is satisfied- not full! Hey, I like a full tummy Mom! Speaking of full tummies, my Mom will share her recipe of Thai Style Braised Chicken at the end of my love meows to you. Mom says it was delicious and very easy to make, once you have all the ingredients. Mom found everything she needed in the “International Foods” section at our grocery store.

We had a little excitement on our stroller walk this morning. A small, chubby Chihuahua was yapping at us and following us for a while. Mom could see he had a collar, so we just ignored him. But he kept following us and Mom got worried he would lose track of how far he was straying from his home. So Mom parked our stroller, took out a handful of kibble (which we always carry in our snack pack) and tried to get the little guy to come to her- which he did easily when he saw the food. His collar did not have a name tag. So he followed us for a while longer while Mom pondered what to do. So we sat down on a bench while the doggie ate OUR food, when a man came running along the trail, looking frantic. Mom got his attention and sure enough, he was looking for his dog “Wiley.” Apparently Wiley is an escape artist, but never strays too far from home. Mom suggested Wiley could use a name tag with his address. The man smiled and said Wiley has managed to lose quite a few of his tags, but he would be sure to get him another one right away. My sister Callie and I meowed goodbye to the little guy, breathing a sigh of relief that he wasn’t coming home with us. MOL!

Well my love, it looks like the Queen has another fun filled day planned for us on Mackinaw Island. I know the kids are really looking forward to exploring Fort Mackinaw. Flower and the kids were quick to point out that there are live demonstrations of musket, rifle and cannon blast at the Fort and paws-on activities for the kids at the Benjamin Blacksmith Shop. I think our kids are in for a very engaging adventure.

I know what I’d like to do with you, if you’re up to it. I read that Fort Mackinac rewards the arduous climb to the top of the picturesque bluff with memorable views of Mackinac Island’s downtown and harbor. I’ll bring my treasured first edition of 'Sonnets From The Portuguese' to read to you while we bask in our love.

My Mom picked up the ingredients she needed for the Eggplant Parmesan recipe your sweet Dad shared with her. She is excited! Mom is going to use all the fresh eggplant her neighbor brought over the other day. It will be plenty for us and Abarna and Ganesh. And they do love vegetarian dishes! Give your Dad a big thank you hug for us, okay sweetie?

Okay, here is the recipe for your Dad... Mom used boneless chicken thighs because she didn’t want any bones in Abarna’s food. Also, she found a “light” coconut milk with less calories, but still quite tasty. Mom didn’t know what “Fish Sauce” was, but she found it in the “International Food” section. Abarna laughed when Mom told her, and said she always has some in her kitchen.:)

Dearest Talley, my beautiful Magic Queen,
I was delighted to hear that Angel Queen Kieara is taking us to Mackinaw Island in Michigan where we’ll be staying at the Grand Hotel for the next two days. The movie that was filmed there, “Somewhere in Time,” is one of my favorites, reminding me so much of us. It’s the unforgettable time travel story about a love so strong, it can overcome the obstacle of Time itself...just as I know our love will. My Dad has the musical score for the theme song and every time he plays it on his piano, there is never a dry eye in the house.

Oh sweetheart, you and I will have a romantic time enjoying the relaxed atmosphere of Mackinac Island, where cars are not allowed and the horse and carriage and bicycle are the favored modes of transportation. I read the Grand Hotel has spectacular views from a rocking chair overlooking the Straits of Mackinac from the world’s longest porch. Oh my love, it will be almost like our home away from home. I can hardly wait to take you out in the evening to the Terrace Room where we can dance to our song “Till Then,” played by the Grand Hotel Orchestra. I’ll pack my best suit so I can look like I belong next to the prettiest kitty on the island!

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my precious Tallulah.

Somewhere in time
We met on timeless hills
And in the evening mist we kissed
And time stood still
Before the dawn, we found forever
Moments are timeless when I feel your caress

You'll always be inside of me
And I know when love is true
It's always with you

Somewhere in time
I came to realize
Love never goes

Love never goes
Once it has touched your heart
Just like the strength of wine that's left
As two lips part
A taste of love will linger after
I know the meaning of all that I see

You'll always be inside of me
And I know when love is true
It's always with you

Somewhere in time
I came to realize
Love never goes

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Oh sweetheart, my family and I were relieved that the recent tropical storm bearing down on your hometown, wasn’t as bad as the last storm. Whenever we hear about storms and see Jacksonville showing on the map, our hearts all skip a beat...and we watch and worry. We’re always so thankful that your Dad and Mom are so prepared. You have to admit, having so many kitties to care for is a big responsibility, especially during a catastrophe, but I always breath a sigh of relief knowing you and your fursibs are in good hands.

Our weather here has been unseasonably cool for September, but the next few days will be warming back up. I am looking forward to the Fall with my kitty love. But then again, any season is wonderful as long as I have my precious Talley.

My Mom was really proud of herself today when she went next door and saw Abarna sitting up in her bed with Ebony and Sugar Bear snuggled next to her. Mom had set up a small staircase at the foot of Abarna’s bed for the cats to use, and use it they have. Abarna said she can barely feel them when they come to bed with her. Before they would jump up and get tangled in the wires, plus Mom was worried Ebony would land on top of Abarna. She is much too fragile for that! But with the stairs, they just walk right up!

Abarna sounded and looked much better today. We could tell our Mom was happy when she came home. I do hope to be back to sending my love meows to you sweetheart. I may not be able to mew it every day, but you are always the first and last thought in my day. I love you sweet Talley, furever and always

Sending soft kisses and loving hugs to my darling Tallulah.

UNTIL YOU...

I never knew Love could feel this way
The kind of Love that makes you always want to stay
I never knew what a wonderful feeling I could get
Just by Loving you and having you Love me back
To have you do things for me
And me to you
And it be such a simple thing to do
I never knew what it was like to have anyone
Lay down beside me
Just to hold me, feel me, Love me
Until I met you
How it felt to be wanted just for me
I grew used to being whatever other kitties wanted
Even though it wasn’t true
I never knew the feeling of having someone
love me for me
Until I met you. ♥

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Oh sweetheart, I loved reading about our new rescued furiends from the flooded Louisiana bayous. Melvin reminds me so much of Scamper; a born leader to his clowder. I think they will do just fine living with the Lakeview families. I overheard Melvin telling Scamper that he and his clowder wanted to get to work right away and it warmed my heart when I heard Scamper tell our new furiend to concentrate on getting his clowder settled in first. Scamper said there was plenty of time for work assignments once everyone felt comfortable and at ease with their new home.

Talley smiled, giving her beloved husband a soft kiss and mewed, “It was a wonderful cookout yesterday, wasn’t it? I think out Louisiana furiends are going to be very happy in our community. They are all such kind and loving kitties and my goodness, the Cajun cuisine is to die for!”

Whiskers nodded happily, pulling Talley tighter into his embrace. He kissed her soft forehead and mewed, “Sweetheart, I am so sorry I haven’t been as attentive as I should be. I would hate to have you unhappy with me. My Mom has been so concerned about our neighbor Abarna and she has been trying to help out over there as much as she can- and to just spend time with Abarna. As a matter of fact, my Mom pulled up one of the delicious recipes your Dad shared with us- the Lemon Mushroom Chicken recipe with zucchini Zoodles- and she started prepping it for today. Abarna’s son took his Mom to a doctor appointment this morning, so Mom is going to surprise them when they get home. Mom has everything set up and ready to cook. A medical van came to pick Abarna up so she is comfortable on the ride. Her breathing is still quite labored and that worries my Mom. Mom knows it doesn’t help to worry. Abarna has good doctors and her son keeps in close collaboration with them.

Never doubt for a minute my love for you sweet Talley. You are the part of me that keeps me going. ♥

Sending soft kisses and hugs to my precious Talley.

ONE OF A KIND
~~~~~
It seems to me, you’re too good to be true.
Now don’t get me wrong, I do believe you,
And everything that you’ve told to me.
But you’re like no other, can’t you see?

Your sweet sense of humor, your gentle ways,
They do make an impact on my days.
And turn my sadness into a smile,
In your arms I’d sure stay awhile.

Your purrs have a calming way all their own,
I’m grateful for all the care you’ve shown.
Like so often before you’ve shown unselfish love,
Your friendship’s a gift from heaven above.

I don’t know what I did to deserve such a prize,
But I know for sure, I’ll keep open eyes.
And never lose sight of my wonderful “find”.
You’re so special to me, you’re one of a kind.

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
I bet the landscaping for your Uncle Ted and Aunt Barbara’s house is beautiful. Your pawrents are so wonderful to help out their family. I’m sorry we didn’t make it by for hockey practice again. My Mom spent a lot of the day going back and forth next door to Abarna’s house. Then late Friday afternoon, Mom’s friend who was in charge of painting the house last weekend, came back to do some finishing touches on the house. He is a long time friend of my Mom’s- they used to work together and have kept in touch ever since. Mom’s friend works during the week, but has always worked on weekends as a handyman and painter. He works hard in preparation for putting his two kids through college. He found a few things around the yard he wanted to fix, so he stayed late and is coming back today. Mom had him look at the job she did with the bathroom faucet and she was so proud when he gave her two paws up. MOL!

We had been wondering why we hadn’t heard from dear Quincy and her family in a while. That’s great that your Dad was able to get them back on CC! Your Dad seems to be THE guy who every one turns to for help on our cat websites. As if your Dad doesn’t have enough to do! Your Dad is wonderful my love, just like you.

I almost forgot to tell you sweetheart, I love the “Fall” picture of us on your CC page. It made my heart flutter!

Sending soft kisses and hugs to my beloved wife, my Talley.

YOU HOLD THE KEY
~~~~~
My heart had been locked up my soul grew dim you see
Then you came into my life you held the only key.

You touched my heart so deeply never touched before
A heart that once was closed is now an open door.

A key that holds your love, I feel so deep within
I gazed into your eyes, and whispered come on in.

When you hold me I see Heaven and all the Stars above
I am very happy giving you all my love.

When I wake up each morning, I thank God for I can see
This wonderful kitty that’s lying next to me.

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
We have good mews! Our neighbor Abarna came home from the hospital yesterday. She’ll need lots of rest, but she’s home and her kitties were SO happy to see their Mom! Abarna started to cry when both Ebony and Sugar Bear ran right up to her as our Mom let them out of their cat carriers. She was sitting down of course, and they both rubbed against her legs, back and forth, and purring up a storm.

My Mom thought this was interesting...Ebony is a lap cat, and right away he put his front paws up on Abarna’s lap- but then he stopped and jumped back off. It was if he knew his Mom was frail. Ebony laid down by her feet purring. Mom says cats are amazing. Yes, I would have to agree!

Oh sweetheart, our Mom showed us the video your Dad sent to us of Evan riding his very cool airplane! Evan looked to be having so much fun. We were all sitting in the room with Mom and we all turned to look at the computer when we heard Evan laughing and talking. Mom laughed and laughed! She could see that we thought there was another little boy in the house! Not that we don’t all love little George!:)

Well my love, I better let my Mom get back to meowing for us to our CC furiends. It’s actually quiet around here without our kitty guests. All in all, our Mom is proud of us. She said we were gracious hosts.:) Whitey and Callie were more annoyed than anything. They would give Ebony and Sugar Bear the “Evie eye” whenever they got too close. MOL! Orangie and I were curious and tried to be furiendly. You’ve taught me well my love!

Sending soft kisses and purrs to my darling Tallulah.

YOU’RE PART OF ME ♥
~~~~~
If I could never see your face again,
Or reach out to touch you,
If I could never again feel your warmth
Against me in the night,
Something would be missing in me.

If, one day, you weren’t by my side,
Together in comfortable silence,
If your paw didn’t reach out to hold mine
As we sat side by side,
Part of me wouldn’t be there either.

The minutes and the hours and the days
Have molded our hearts into one,
And I have found contentment and
Satisfaction within your love.
We belong together.

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Wow! Four feet in diameter is a very big tree limb! Your Dad and Uncle Ted have their work cut out for them. I’m glad that no one was hurt my love. That was a very scary storm and I had all of you in my constant prayers.

We had a busy Labor Day weekend here too. Mom had completely forgotten that our house was scheduled to be painted, so when her friend showed up with several helpers, Mom was scrambling to get us cats situated safely in the house. It was funny to see how suddenly my sisters and I all got along wonderfully with our house guests, Ebony and Sugar Bear. When we heard the ladders against the house, we all huddled together under the beds. Mom was proud of us, especially me. I like to believe my social skills have improved immensely ever since I met you my love. I tried to be a great host!

Our neighbor Abarna is coming home from the hospital today. I know Ebony and Sugar Bear will be happy to have their Mom back. Mom will take the two kitties to their home after Abarna arrives home. Your prayers and all the prayers from our CC furiends really helped a lot. I’m hoping our home will get back to normal soon.

Scamper is doing okay too. He was scared yesterday with the painters this weekend, but he stayed close to home. Mom spotted him hiding in the hedge that borders our neighbor’s home. In the evening, once the workers left, Mom only had to call his name once and he came running home every time!

Well, my love, I better let Mom get ready for Abarna’s arrival. I love you my precious, always and furever.

Sending soft kisses and hugs to my precious Tallulah.

Love ♥
~~~~~
For every kiss, I take a second
to say a prayer.
Each time you hold me, I take
a minute to thank God for you.
For every hour we spend together,
I wish for more hours in the day.
And for each day that we’re apart,
I miss you so much my heart
can’t bear it.
Love knows no boundaries.
Love knows no distance.
Fate brought us together,
and only God can tear us apart.

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
We got a very late start again today again...Mom’s fault! Hee, hee! Mom was helping her neighbor Ganesh, set up the house for his Mom’s return home, hopefully next week. Ganesh ordered a nice hospital bed that is much bigger than the ones at the hospital. It has remote controls to adjust just about everything. The only thing is that it looks kind of scary with the rails along the sides. Not sure how Ebony and Sugar Bear will like it. Mom thinks the two kitties will be so happy to have their Mom back, they won’t even notice.:)

Since Mom was gone most of the afternoon, she had to lock Ebony and Sugar Bear in their room. The room they’re using is George’s room, so it has two kitty sills in the window and several cat shelves on the wall, plus a cat tree! They don’t fuss or meow at all when Mom shuts them in there. But so far every time Mom gets home and checks on them, both cats are laying on George’s bed! MOL! They’re no dummies!

We’re still closely watching that awful Hurricane Hermine on the news and keeping all our friends in our prayers that are affected. George and his pawrents live in South Carolina now, but they called and are doing okay. Just some tree clean up was needed. George’s Dad told Mom that George had his flashlight out last night when it was really windy, aiming it out the back window. George was checking on his swing set in their backyard. He didn’t want that to fly away! MOL! Thankfully it did not!

My Mom and I were so relieved when we received an email from your Dad, letting us know you are all okay. Whew! That must have been very scary sweetheart. You are my brave, beautiful Magic Queen

I love you sweetheart. I'm going to bed early tonight so I can dream of you. I probably won't want to wake up!

"You are every reason, every hope and every dream I've ever had." ♥

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Oh sweetheart, my Mom and I have been watching the scary news about Hurricane Hermine and we are so worried for all of you. There is a special channel on TV dedicated to tracking the storm. We’re so glad your Dad is prepared to bring the formal feral kitties inside the house if necessary. They must be so scared. We hope your pawrents don’t have a hard time getting them together. We’re keeping all of you in our constant prayers sweetheart. Try to be brave my love and help your Dad look after your fursibs.

My Mom just finished feeding Ebony and Sugar Bear. I have been so interested in their food, that I haven’t been eating my own food, so Mom is back to syringe feeding me. I can’t help it my love! Their food smells so good. They eat something called ZiwiPeak and ever since I was able to sneak a few bites, I can’t get it out of mind. I know, I have to stick to my prescription diet. (Heavy sigh!)

My Mom is getting ready to go visit Abarna at the hospital. She is doing much better, but probably won’t be coming home until next week. Abarna was very sick there for a while and my Mom was so worried that she might not make it. Mom even talked to Dad about possibly taking in Ebony and Sugar Bear for good if need be. At least now we know that it is possible for all of us to get along. Just good to know. We’re trying to think positive.

Balloon
~~~~~
I think that I might fly away, in my hot air balloon,
And hide from worldly worries on the dark side of the moon;
There’s but one thing I need before I float into the blue:
I need a sky companion and I want it to be you.

We’ll fly beyond the storm clouds and we’ll watch from up above,
I’ll cover you in rainbows as we feel each others’ love;
You’ll shower in the stars at midnight in our special place,
I’ll dry you with a comet’s tail and kiss your beaming face.

Dreamy drifting panorama, changing every day,
Every night your loving smile will be my milky way,
The moon will wane before us, sailing there in heaven’s height,
For nothing else can challenge our love’s everlasting light.

Venus shining on us, glowing soft at our devotion,
Our daily drifting dalliance in love’s celestial ocean,
I’ll write you lovers’ poetry, and you will be my muse,
Orion and Andromeda will oversee our cruise.

We’ll sleep with clouds as pillows, maybe steal an angel’s wings,
Then fly as magic lovebirds, or slide round Saturn’s rings,
And should we tire of drifting and the stars all floating by,
We’ll hook onto a meteor and soar across the sky.

Will you consent to be my mate on our celestial ship?
I’m ready, heart all packed with love, to last us for the trip,
Take my paw and step aboard, we’re heading for the sun,
We’re flying till we find the place where our two souls are one.

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Oh sweetheart, I’m so worried about you and your family. Thank God you have your always prepared Dad to batten down the hatches, keeping all of you safe and dry. We’re all praying for your family. If the wind and rain starts to frighten you my love, I want you to close your eyes and dream that I am holding you tightly in my arms. I’ll be reading to you from our book of love poems. Be brave sweetheart. I’m so glad that Henri and Beauty will be safe in your Dad’s workshop as they ride out the storm. Your Dad is the best! We’ll be praying for your Uncle Ted and his family too.

It’s hard to believe that sweet Evan has turned two years old already. He sounds so delightful playing the Mickey Mouse theme on the piano. What a talented young lad he is!

The baby grand piano in our house was the first piece of furniture my Mom and Dad acquired when they first bought the house. It was a gift from Dad’s Mom, GM Sylvia. The piano is the centerpiece of our small home. Mom and Dad then decorated around the piano. MOL! The piano will always be our Dad’s baby!

Well my darling, it’s almost time for dinner. Mom locked Ebony and Sugar Bear in their room so they can have some privacy while they eat...plus Mom caught me licking their food bowls and that’s a big no-no! Hey, I get real tired of my prescription cat food! Oh well, I know I need to stay healthy, if only for my beautiful wife.:)
Whitey and Sugar Bear had a small disagreement today, but nothing serious. Sugar Bear moves too fast for Whitey’s liking and Whitey gave her a couple of quick paw swats before Mom broke it up. Sugar Bear weighs maybe 6 pounds and Whitey weighs 14 pounds, so Mom scolded Whitey and checked Sugar Bear for any scratches. She’s okay. Mom slept in the guest bedroom with Ebony and Sugar Bear last night, but she left the door open so we could all see what was going on. I decided to sleep by the bedroom door to keep an eye on my Mom.:) Callie, Whitey and Orangie slept with Dad. Mom is a bit surprised that my sisters and I are handling the kitty guests so well. I knew we could do it!

Mom spoke to Ganesh this morning and he is hopeful that his Mom Abarna might be coming home this weekend. The doctors wouldn’t say for sure; just that she is doing better each day and she’ll need a lot of care when she does return home. That sounds great to us! My Mom always believes the best medicine is being back in your own home.

I love you sweet Talley. I’ll read to you now while we block out the sound of the rain. Sound good? You can probably hear me purring right now. ♥

Sending soft kisses and hugs to my precious Tallulah.

Rainy Days
~~~~~
I love the rain in our lives
It reminds me of the times that are special
The times that we take just for ourselves
The times for just you and me and the rain

The gentle rains are the times for our walks
To feel the wetness against our fur, walking together
To laugh and splash like kittens in the puddles
To kiss and embrace in the sweetness of the rain

The thunderstorms are the times for cozy fires
Resting in my arms and feeling the warmth of desire
Feeling the security of being lost in my love
Listening to the pounding of the rain and our hearts

The lighting flashes across the dark skies
It lights up the room and highlights your smile
You bring a glow to both my heart and my life
Those brief interludes of light illuminate your love

As the thunder outside rumbles ever so near
It is like the love inside me that yearns so near
Building and growing stronger each day
Till like the crash of the thunder, my passion explodes

I love the rain that falls in our lives
I love the feelings that each storm provides
You and I live for each storm that comes by
Oh, my dear, the rain says I love you all over again

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Oh sweetie, I loved the story you meowed to me last night. I’m so happy we’ll be helping the poor, defenseless animals that have been caught up in the nasty storms. We were watching the Weather Channel last night before bed, and we became very concerned when we saw how Florida is getting hit practically all across the state. We have your family in our constant prayers. We hope the storms don’t hurt the progress on your Uncle Ted’s new home. We know your Dad has a nice, warm shelter for Henri and hopefully his kitty furiend is still with him.

Here is what has been happening at our home over the weekend. We have kitty guests staying with us! You probably guessed...it’s Ebony and Sugar Bear! Mom got a chance to sit down and send out some CC meows for us...

It has been busy around here the past few days, so we apologize for not meowing to our CC furiends like we wish we could. Mom has been busy helping out with our neighbor next door, getting ready for Abarna to come home. Abarna is still in the hospital, recovering ever so slowly, but she is recovering. Her lungs and breathing sound so much better and she is even smiling. She misses her kitties, Ebony and Sugar Bear, very much. This weekend, her son Ganesh started to have quite a few relatives arrive from out of town. Our Mom got real nervous about the kitties possibly escaping from their house, so Mom brought Ebony and Sugar Bear over here for a few days. Yep, we have kitty company! Mom set them up late Saturday in one bedroom, until she figured out how to handle it. My sisters and I were curious about who was behind that closed door, so we all camped outside the closed bedroom door...waiting. MOL! Mom slept with Ebony and Sugar Bear. Late Sunday, Mom decided to put up one of her grandson’s “child-safe gates” in the door. They are much more substantial than the usual “pet-gate.” We all sniffed each other through the gate and finally Mom opened the gate! It was funny- Ebony and Sugar Bear stayed inside the room and my sisters and I just kept passing by the open door, peeking our heads in every now and then. Ebony finally was brave enough to explore the upstairs hallway, but both kitties seem content for now, to just relax in their room.

Today there has been no hissing or growling (from Callie or Whitey!), but not much mingling either. Mom is proud of us kitties for how well behaved we have all been. Mom was expecting an episode from “My Cat From Hell!” See Mom, all that worrying for nothing!:) Mom is still going to lock our guests up in the room before she leaves anywhere.

I love you sweetheart, always and furever. ♥

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my precious Talley.

Whiskers opened his eyes as the sun
had just started to filter through their bedroom window. Talley lay nestled in his arms, looking like a beautiful angel from Heaven. Whiskers said a silent prayer to God, thanking Him for making him the luckiest cat in the world. Talley’s emerald necklace glimmered as the sunbeams filled the room. Whiskers smiled. He was delighted that Talley had liked her gift, but he didn’t expect her to be wearing it to bed. As beautiful as the piece was, Whiskers hadn’t taken into consideration, that it might be uncomfortable to wear all the time. When Talley opened her lovely emerald eyes, she gave her husband a soft kiss.

“Good morning my love,” she mewed. “Have you been awake long? I was sound asleep and dreaming that we were picnicking on a beach somewhere. I’m not sure exactly where we were, but it was heavenly and I didn’t want to wake up.”
Whiskers smiled, gently kissing Talley’s soft forehead. He said, “I enjoy watching you sleep my love. I could tell you were having a nice dream. Your pretty eyelashes were fluttering and you had the sweetest smile on your lips. I was hoping I was part of your dream.”
Talley ran her paw through Whisker’s furry cheek and said, “My handsome King is always in my dreams.”

Whiskers kissed Talley once again and said, “You know sweetheart, I’m so glad you like your emerald necklace, but I was thinking it can’t be too comfortable around your delicate neck. It wouldn’t hurt my feelings if you only wore it on special occasions. It looks beautiful on you of course, but anything would look lovely on you. Besides, my sister Callie said a Queen can never have too many gems and jewels in her jewelry chest.”
Talley smiled as she pawed the necklace around her neck. She mewed, “Thank you for always being so considerate of me my love. I treasure the fact that it is a gift from you. I do love you so my beloved husband.”
Whiskers pulled Talley tighter into his arms, enveloping his precious wife with a deep hug and kiss. Whiskers mewed into Talley’s ear, “I just want you to know how much I love you and I can never meow it enough it to you. You are everything to me my precious Magic Queen. The two kitties in love were ready to begin another blessed day together.

Downstairs in the kitchen, Callie and Angel Maggie were preparing a Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast Casserole. The two girls had actually prepared the new dish the night before, so all that was needed was to pop it into the oven while they fixed a Strawberry-Maple syrup to serve with the decadent casserole. Pearl, Mitch and the kids would be joining them and Pearl was bringing fresh strawberries and homemade whipped cream for those who wanted to forego the syrup. Pearl knew that some of the girls were watching their weight.

While breakfast was baking, the family enjoyed coffee and hot chocolate together at the table. Flower, Ralph and their sisters had finally finished work on the royal portraits for their new Queen in September. Flower proudly told his family, “Angel Kieara gave us all her final approval and she said she was delighted with our work. We are very excited about the upcoming Coronation.”

Whiskers smiled as he poured a cup of coffee for him and his beautiful wife. He ruffled the fur on Flower’s head and said, “I had no doubt that Angel Kieara would be pleased. You kids do great work. Speaking of work, isn’t school starting soon? I bet you are all looking forward to hitting the books again.”

Flower nodded happily and said, “School begins after Labor Day Uncle Whiskers, but right now we are concentrating on the preparations for the Coronation. We’re all keeping our paws crossed that CC is still with us for one more special event.”

K. Pete smiled and said, “That would be nice, but even if it is not be on CC, we still have our other homes ready and waiting. The Coronation will be held, no matter what.”
The kids held their paws up in the air and cheered. Callie poked her head out from the kitchen, letting Flower, Ralph and Timothy that breakfast was ready. The boys hurried together to sound the breakfast chime. Just in the nick of time too! Whisker’s tummy was beginning to grumble. Whiskers was grateful his tummy couldn’t be heard over the breakfast bell.

The family joined paws as they bowed their heads. Flower led the morning prayer...

“Dear Lord,
We thank you for this food today, and for all those who care for us.
Our moms and dads, teachers, furiends, grandmas and granddads.
Bless this food to make us grow, so strong and full of life, and bless all those who work so hard to watch over us day and night.
And please Lord, watch over Mom Mandy’s friend Abarna, our dear furiend Jakar and all those who are in need. Amen.”

The delicious food was brought to the table for the family to enjoy. The chatter this morning was plenty. They had the Coronation to look forward to and the girls wanted to start planning the weddings for Neekah Boo and Orangie. The two kitties had already been looking through bridal magazines for wedding dresses. There was so much to be done, but that was half the fun of a wedding.

Looking around the dining room table, Whiskers couldn’t help thinking about how incredibly lucky he was to have such a wonderful family. He glanced over at Talley, who knew exactly what her husband was thinking. Her brilliant smile directed at him, brought tears to Whisker’s eyes. He was indeed the luckiest and happiest tom in the world.

Sending soft kisses and loving hugs to my precious wife, my beautiful Magic Queen Tallulah.

TODAY I TALKED TO GOD
~~~~~
Today I went to church and as I knelt to pray
I needed no rehearsal I knew exactly what to say.
I thanked God for Heaven and the stars that shine above
I thanked him for you and giving me your love.
I thanked him for you, showing what true love really means
I thanked him for you appearing in my dreams.
I thanked him for taking away my troubles and what strife.
Thank you God for bringing this wonderful kitty into my life.
I’ll Love her Furever & Always, I promise for sure
Thank you God she’s all I ever wanted, and more.
And as each minute becomes an hour and totals a brand new day
My love keeps growing stronger more than words can say.
I’ve loved her for a while now, right from the very start
Thank you God for guiding Talley to my heart.

You got it! ♥
Oh sweetheart, I am so happy you finally got my present. My Mom had just gotten on her computer when I heard her call my name. I came running to see what the commotion was all about and when I saw the picture of your beautiful, gorgeous face, my heart skipped a beat and was bursting with love! The necklace looks lovely on you sweetheart and I was so happy to see it came wrapped in a pretty box too. Maybe it was worth the wait! I have my eye on another lovely gift for our anniversary. I am over the moon with happiness that you like it my love.

My Mom had been a little distraught this morning with worry for our friend Abarna. Her breathing was still very laboured last night, but this morning Mom got a call from her son, saying Abarna is finally responding to her medications and perhaps our prayers are being answered. Getting your email and pictures today was just what the doctor ordered for us! I love you so much sweetheart. You are and always will be my precious Magic Queen.

Sending soft kisses and hugs to my precious Talley.

ONCE IN A LIFETIME ♥
~~~~~
A chance meeting by a Higher Power.
Two strangers become furiends,
both feeling like they’ve known
each other furever.
An attraction so strong,
and a feeling so deep,
neither one could ignore.
Separated by distance,
but brought together by fate,
and everyday falling deeper in love.
A love that is true, strong, and gentle.
A love that only happens
once in a lifetime.

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Well my love, I apologize for the cut and paste once again (see below), but I know you know you are always in my thoughts and prayers. Mom is going to the hospital again tonight to visit Abarna. Mom bought her a pretty stuffed black cat that she found at the Hallmark store and it looks a lot like Sugar Bear. It should at least make Abarna smile.

I know you probably still haven’t received the package I sent you. It seems so long ago! I had my Mom check on it again and the company said as it was mailed on the 16th, it might take the service 7-21 days before it gets to you, but most arrive by the 10th day. My Mom kicks herself for not having a tracking number mailed with it, but that option required a signature at delivery and Mom didn’t want to bother your Dad with that. Next time we know better.:(

You’re always in my dreams my love...always and furever. Love from your Whiskers.

Sending soft kisses and hugs to my beloved Talley.

It’s always a happy day when we see that CC is still us. We are all doing fine, enjoying some nice low 80 degree temperatures. The small lump in my sister Callie’s mouth is almost gone, so thankfully it was just a bump from too much roughhousing. Of course all the good wishes from our CC furiends helped a lot!

Our Mom went to visit our neighbor Abarna in the hospital last night... But first she took a picture of her kitties, Ebony and Sugar Bear, used Photoshop to put them together with a sign that said, “Get Well Mom! We Miss You!” and then printed it out on our color printer and put into a frame. Abarna was delighted! She misses her furbabies and wants to come home to them, but it won’t be for a while. Abarna is still having a lot of trouble breathing so they are keeping her in the ICU for now.

Mom was talking with Abarna’s son Ganesh at the hospital when his sister showed up to see their Mom. The sister lives about an hour away. The sister is not a “pet purrson.” She told her brother that the first thing they need to do when their Mom gets better, is get rid of those messy cats. Mom glared at her, but Ganesh spoke up right away and said the cats are the love of his Mom’s life right now and that they are not going anywhere! Later Ganesh pulled our Mom aside and told her he loves the cats too and they are not messy. :)

Orangie wanted me to convey her meows of thanks for all the concatulations on her engagement to handsome Hedley. She is purring like a kitty in love! ♥

Just like us sweetheart!
