Domestic Shorthair from <a href='' title='Jacksonville, FL'>Jacksonville, FL</a>

Talley COTD 01/02/2009

About Me

Active within 1 Day

Hi! My name is Talley COTD 01/02/2009

I am Domestic Shorthair from Jacksonville, FL

Nicknames: My name is Tallulah, I'm called Talley, Talley Boo, Tally Ho & lots of sweet names

Age: 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

Hi Talley, My Precious Love! ♥
Oh sweetheart! I just saw the wonderful picture of our portraits hanging on the beautiful staircase and I love it! We do make an amazing looking family, don't we?! K. Pete looks so aristocratic! And you look like the girl of my dreams. My Mom loved the great shot of the staircase! Thank you so much my precious Talley.

We all saw the video of Harley that your Dad posted on the Catmewsroom. Harley is incredibly handsome. My Mom was wondering if he belonged to someone? He seems so calm and loving. We sure hope he decides to move in with your pawrents in the lovely outside room.

first of all
we wanted to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for taking the water games and outside cooking as well as all the food tables! it sure helped us to get a chance to kick back and enjoy all that was going on around us for sure and for the first time all season! we had been like janet the past few days going all out to get as much done as possible. she was busy getting blogging/email/fb/eletter reply done as well as taking time out to walk with nat seeing the weather held out till after her supper was done and finished. she mad 2 pots of chicken and stars soup and then did supper of baked chicken with baked potato and string beans which was welcomed as the weather outside had turned nippy. at least the rain held off till after her supper was done, but caught nat by surprise when he went to take pepper out for her last time of the day, it was raining, then she fought janet/nat for drying her off trying to nip and growl at them for the first time as janet put it she said she was in a bad mood or something. see you next two weeks only for the sleepover/inside out games. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Sweet Talley, It's Your Whiskers Again!♥
I didn't want you to worry about me tomorrow, but I'll be late with my blog to you sweetie. Mom has a dentist appointment in the morning and then is having a physical fitness test in the afternoon. Her and Dad are applying for some new life insurance and the company wants a complete physical done on both of them. Mom is very skeptical about the whole new life insurance thing, but their financial advisor is insisting on it. My Mom hasn't had a complete physical in years; how many she can't even remember. So it couldn't hurt to have one done. They still have life insurance they started many, many years ago- this one is just supposed to be better. We shall see!

I love you sweetheart and I had a wonderful time today. Congratulations on your team winning tonight! I'm always so proud of my beautiful girl!

Talley was smiling and holding up a big fluffy
towel for Whiskers as he came out of the dunking booth. Whiskers was soaked, but he had a huge grin on his face. Talley helped her husband dry off and gave him a big kiss. Whiskers shook his head to get the water out of his ears. He kissed Talley back and said, “I don’t think a single miss was thrown. I thought for sure I was going to drown! Hee, hee, hee...not really sweetie. I could hear all the laughter and fun our furiends were having and I didn’t want it to stop.”
Talley smiled at Whiskers and said, “Let’s sit down and watch the festivities for a while. I think Mitch is up next in the dunking booth. Pearl is standing by with dry towels.”
Talley took out her tablet as her and Whiskers sat down. Talley called to check on Thomas and Annabella. The two skunks had wanted to come to the festival, but had decided it was still too soon for Thomas. Annabella answered Talley’s call with a happy hello. Annabella said, “Thomas and I are down at the boathouse. We brought a flat of eggs and bacon for Oliver and Serena and her kits.” Thomas bent his head toward the screen on the tablet and said good morning. Thomas said, “Whiskers! Why are you all wet? Is it raining there?” Whiskers laughed and told Thomas about the dunking booth. Thomas laughed and said, “Well, be ready when Ralph gives the dunking booth a try. My son is quite a pitcher!” Whiskers thanked Thomas for the warning.
Talley said to Annabella, “Is Oliver with you too?” Suddenly she heard a swoosh and Oliver’s face was on the screen. Oliver was hooting good morning to his furiends. He said, “Talley, Whiskers, I wanted to thank your family so much for getting me a library card. I checked out some books yesterday and I was reading all night. I checked out a book called ‘Wesley the Owl,’ by Stacey O’Brien, and I haven’t been able to put it down. It’s a remarkable love story about a compassionate biologist who adopts a baby owl. It’s astonishing! If you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend it. I’m thinking of trying to write a book of my own sometime”

Whiskers and Talley were all smiles, happy to see their furiends having a nice morning together. Serena poked her head toward the screen and wished Talley and Whiskers a wonderful day. Serena said, “Annabella is showing me how to cook bacon and eggs on the stove this morning. The kits are delighted and I have to admit, the taste is incredible! Have fun at the festival.”

Annabella came back on the screen and said, “Tell everyone to have fun and we are doing fine.” Thomas yelled in the background, “Tell Rosie and Ralph to be good when they get there!”
Talley smiled, wishing them a wonderful day and then signed off.

Talley hugged Whiskers and said, “It warms my heart to see how well our new furiends are doing.” Whiskers nodded, taking Talley’s paw and said, “Come on sweetheart. Let’s walk around and enjoy the fun. I always like to show off my lovely wife in a crowd.” Talley smiled, happy to be with her beloved husband.

As they walked around the festival, they were greeted by many of their furiends, all having a great time. Whiskers stopped at one of the booths selling candy apples. The booth was being run by K. Steve and Ernie. Whiskers bought two apples and said to K. Steve warily, “Now these candy apples aren’t going to explode in my mouth, are they? I know you guys and your funny tricks.” K. Steve shook his head and crossed his paw over his heart. “No worries Whiskers. It’s not Halloween yet! Then you might have to worry! Hee, hee, hee!”

Whiskers and Talley walked around, enjoying being together as they munched on their apples. Talley said, “Don’t forget we have hockey tonight too. I better remind Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy. They’ve been very busy transporting all of us back and forth the past couple of days.” Whiskers nodded, trying to lick some the caramel from his whiskers. Whiskers told Talley, “We might be a little late getting to the hockey games tonight. My Mom has been busy getting ready for her trip to San Diego. She likes to make sure everything is in place for Dad when she leaves. My Dad isn’t used to taking care of us, so he just needs to be reminded how to do it.” Whiskers laughed when he said, “My Mom has post-it notes all over the house for him.”

Whiskers and Talley finished eating their candy apples and stopped to try the Pumpkin Patch Ring Toss game. Whiskers got two out three and Talley made all three! Talley picked out her prize and gave it to a small kitten passing by who was overjoyed. Whiskers smiled and said, “Okay, lets try some more games so we can give away our prizes. You’re such a generous soul my love.”

It was almost noontime and time for the kids to be arriving. Whiskers put his arm around Talley as they sat down to take a break. Whiskers relished the moment of his precious Talley relaxing in his arms. He breathed in her lovely scent and mewed, “Our first wedding anniversary is coming up soon. Can you believe it has almost been a whole year since we walked down the aisle at our wedding? It all seems like a wonderful dream to me. I can barely remember my life before you. Or maybe my mind just doesn’t want to remember. I love you so much Talley.” Whiskers and Talley embraced, lost In a deep kiss.

The happy sounds of their nephews and nieces brought them back to earth. Flower, Ralph, Rosie, Liliana, Tabitha, Daisy, Rocky and Violet had arrived with the Angels.
Flower and kids were bouncing up and down, ready to get to work in their Fur & Face Painting Booth. Flower grabbed Whisker’s paw and exclaimed, “Uncle Whiskers. Will you be our first customer? We want to paint you to look like a skunk!” Whiskers nodded happily as Talley laughed and they all walked over to get the booth ready for action. Talley winked at Whiskers and blew him a kiss.

Whiskers sighed, knowing he had everything in life any kitty could ever hope for.

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

“Every Love Story is beautiful, but ours is my favorite.”

Whiskers yawned, stretching his arms
over his head. Boy oh boy, had he slept good last night. Nothing like a late night around the campfire with furiends and family. The folding cots and light mattress that Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie had put up for him and Talley to use was marvelous. His back felt great. Whiskers looked to see where Talley was. She was already up and brushing her fur. Whiskers jumped out of bed and said, ‘Wait sweetheart. Let me do that for you.” Talley smiled as she kissed Whiskers and handed him her brush. As Whiskers brushed her fur to a lustrous shine, he asked his beautiful wife how she slept. Talley smiled and said, “I slept like a kitten. It was so much fun singing songs around the campfire and I loved all the great Halloween stories being told last night.”

Whiskers and Talley folded up their sleeping bags and cots. The wonderful aroma of spiced coffee and hot chocolate filled the air. The house was buzzing with the sounds of laughter and kitties milling around. Whiskers said to Talley, “I better put my wetsuit on under my clothes. I want to be ready for my turn in the dunking booth. I’m always amazed at how accurate our furiends are at throwing a ball.”
Callie and Angel Maggie were bringing coffee over to Whiskers and Talley. Callie overheard her brother talking about the dunking booth. She laughed and said, “When they see King Whiskers up there as the target, suddenly every kitty becomes a professional ball player! Tee, hee!”

Angels Lucy and Sylvie had already gotten the kids up early and taken them to school. K. Pete, Raven, Ms. Murphy, Mitch and Pearl were sipping coffee with Whitey and Orangie at a table outside. The outside games were ready to go. Angel Maggie and Callie’s Bakery Booth had dozens of kitties enjoying breakfast pastries and cookies with their hot breakfast drinks.
Whiskers pulled up a chair for Talley as they joined their family. Pearl said, “The kids are at school already thanks to Angels Lucy and Sylvie. They all had sad faces when they left, but when the Angels assured them they would be back to pick them up and bring them to the festival, suddenly they were all smiles.”
Whiskers sipped his delicious hot coffee and said, “That’s good Pearl. I know they don’t want to miss out on the fun, but the festival will be going on all day. And it looks like the weather is cooperating with us. It’s chilly, but I don’t see a rain cloud in the sky.” Talley nodded and mewed, “It’s a beautiful fall day.”

K. Pete said to Whiskers, “Why don’t you, I and Mitch get the dunking booth going this morning. We’ll draw straws to see who goes first. After everyone sees how much fun it is being the ‘dunkee’, I’m sure we’ll get a lot of volunteers.”
Whiskers smiled and said, “I’ll go first brother. I already have my wetsuit on under my clothes.”
Callie yelled out from the bakery booth, “I volunteer to throw the first pitch!” Whiskers playfully stuck his tongue out at his sister!

Talley, Raven and Ms. Murphy wanted to try the Pumpkin Roll. As hockey players, the girls knew they would be good at it. Raven said, “Maybe we can challenge some of the toms to race against us!”
Whitey, Orangie and Pearl were going to be in charge of the prize table. The girls could hardly wait to hand the gifts to the excited kitties.

Talley helped Whiskers into the dunking booth, giving him a kiss for being a good sport. Many cats were just coming outside from the house, ready to have some fun.

Suddenly a big explosive splash of water filled the air, with dozens of kitties screaming in delight! Callie was doing a happy dance. She had thrown a bullseye at the Dunking Booth!

The Harvest Festival was underway!

national cat harvest festival today!
also added to the celebrations were buttons cotd party so 3 big ones in one day, whew that's some shabang isn't it? first of all we wanted to thank you for taking over some of the duties here as we've had our hands full much like janet's had and still has outback as she's tackled the yardwork head on without nat's help as he's got the leaves mowing this and a neighbors lawn as well as numerous papers lots of them, and add to that errands as well as shopping or appointments of which he's had one this week and has another next week as well as now ab seeing the vet for her yearly check and now skin problem it seems. the weather is cooperating nicely and the sun's been out quite a few times, but we do have showers moving on in by mid to late afternoon just when things should be cleaned up as we're calling for a halt around 3pm to let the clean up and packing of transports to go back home again commence. janet's tackled the bittersweet and forgot the prickers on the vines so her arms are scratched up as well as hands, but she says it's nothing in comparison to knife cuts she gets left and right at work so thinks nothing of them! she's got more left to do, but not to much more on the north side of the shed/garage to get as well as black raspberries which are nasty and need gloves. then bean vines inside/out of the fence and flowers which are in full bloom still as well as throwing out some apple wood which was given away and nobody wanted the rest of it, so it's going to be junked see-ing we can't use it. hoping on seeing you all here just 2 more weeks for the inside-out games/sleepover which official-ly ends the season till spring when it starts up and goes till this time next year. sandy,ab,haley,angeles

Whisker’s keen nose was detecting something
delicious in the air when he woke up this morning. It wasn’t the lovely scent of his beautiful wife Talley, which always made his heart skip a beat. No, this smelled like breakfast cooking and from the sounds coming from downstairs, he knew everyone must be up preparing for the Sleepover and Harvest Festival at Sandy, Ana, Haley and the Angels house. Talley was still asleep, looking like the princess in Sleeping Beauty. Whiskers couldn’t resist kissing her soft lips. Talley opened her emerald green eyes and smiled. Whiskers mewed, “It worked! I must be your Prince Charming. You awoke from your sleep just as I kissed you.” Talley giggled and said, “Oh Whiskers, you’ll always be my one true love.” The two kitties in love held each other in a warm embrace.

It was a romantic moment, interrupted by the sound of Whisker’s tummy growling. Talley couldn’t resist laughing. Whisker’s cheeks turned a bright red as he said, “Only you could find it in your heart to love a buffoon such as I.” Talley mewed, “I’ll always love you sweetheart- for better or for worse. And I love your tummy’s funny disposition too.”

Whiskers got out of bed, getting Talley’s fluffy robe for her. He said, “We better get ready for our big day. I asked Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie if they would transport K. Pete, Mitch and myself to Ana’s house so we can start to set up our booths. That way everything will be ready for tomorrow.” Talley nodded and said, “My sisters and the girls have a lot of baking and food preparations to work on too. I’ll wash your back if you wash mine.” Another wonderful day was underway.

The girls were just started to set the table when Whiskers and Talley came downstairs. Flower smiled at his Auntie and Uncle and said, “Did the smell of bacon wake you up too?” Whiskers laughed and ruffled his nephew’s furry head. “You and me both little buddy. I was afraid my tummy would come running down to breakfast before I did!”

Whitey poured the freshly brewed coffee and hot chocolate for her family, while Orangie, Annabella and Pearl brought platters to the table filled with scrambled eggs, pancakes with whipped butter, applewood-smoked bacon, sausage links and pan-fried potatoes. Whiskers, Flower and Ralph were licking their lips in anticipation. After chiming the breakfast bell, Flower and Ralph sat down to join paws with their family for the saying of grace.

Whiskers congratulated Flower and Ralph for the incredible job they did building a nest for Oliver. Raven smiled and showed everyone at the table, a picture from the video cam on her tablet, with Oliver resting peacefully in his new nest. Flower and Ralph were beaming with pride. Raven panned the camera around the boathouse to show Serena and her kits sound asleep together in one bed, covered with the large warm quilt the girls had given them. There were “Oohh’s & Aahh’s” audible all around the table.

Whiskers said to K. Pete, “I think I might have missed out on what you told us Oliver had to say about the wolves. Maybe when you get a chance you can tell me again. I do like the idea Oliver had about keeping some distance between the wolves den and the other shelters.” Whiskers took a bite of his crispy bacon, wiped his mouth and said to Thomas, “I was reading up on wolves on my tablet last night too. What you said yesterday about the wolves being family centered intrigued me. I found an article that said the male and female wolves mate for life. And it warmed my heart to read they are devoted parents and maintain sophisticated family ties. They sound exactly like us!”
Thomas nodded and said, “Oliver told me wolves are neither good or bad. They are by nature very shy and extremely cautious. I believe Talley was right when she said we just need to take the time and patience to reach out to them. Let them evaluate us on their terms and decide whether or not they feel safe in befriending us.”

Ralph raised his paw to say he had read wolves can hear as far as six miles away in the forest. Flower nodded and added, “And they can smell other animals more than a mile away. I think they sound like incredible animals! I hope they’ll be friends with us.”

Whiskers looked at Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy when he said, “The protective field you girls said you could put over the shelters sounds amazing. But you’re both right in using that as a last resort. My Mom had a dog that was deaf. An animal trainer told her the only way to get through to him was with a vibration collar. The vibration was controlled remotely by varying intensities. Mom bought the equipment and signed up for a class on how to use it properly. The first day, when she saw how violently her dog reacted to the collar, she ripped the collar off him, laid down her remote and walked out. She then found someone who taught her and her dog how to use sign language to communicate. It took a while longer, but it was fun and they bonded. So now my Mom is a firm believer in only using love and friendship as a motivator. It works almost every time; on animals that is- humans are a another story.” The family nodded their heads in agreement.

After a wonderful breakfast, it was time to get the kids to school and start preparing for the sleepover tonight. Whiskers and Talley had enough time to walk the kids to school and decided to jog back home for a bit of exercise. Whiskers kissed Talley, patted his tummy and said, “I need to make room in here for some of your delicious apple pie!”

Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs my precious Talley.

Beginnings are usually scary
and endings are usually sad,
but it’s everything in between

While Whiskers and Talley lay in bed,
Whiskers had powered up his tablet so they could look at the pictures of the Blue Angels Squadron Talley’s Dad had sent to them. The photos were amazing. Whiskers said, “I can’t believe how blue and clear the sky is. The Blue Angels had an Airshow in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago. My Mom watched it on TV and the pilots had a quite a bit of fog to contend with. Luckily there was a slight wind that kept the fog to a minimum, but it looked very scary. At the end of the Airshow, Fat Albert, a C-130 Hercules flew over the crowd much to everyone’s delight. During the telecast, the jets kept getting lost in the fog, but it was still a thrill to watch. I can’t wait to see pictures of baby Evan wearing his first Blue Angels tee shirt and cap. He is going to look adorable. I bet K. Pete would have looked great wearing a Blue Angel’s cap too, but I can understand him not liking to mess up his fur. Hee, hee, hee.”

Talley got out of bed, pulling on one of her fluffy robes since there was a chill in the air. She looked out the bedroom window and said, “It looks like it’s going to be a beautiful day sweetheart. We have a lot of preparations to work on for the Harvest Festival on Wednesday. The girls and I will be preparing some of the food and don’t forget you’ll be helping with some of the outside games.” Whiskers smiled and said, “I was thinking of having a Pumpkin Roll contest using sturdy brooms to propel the pumpkins over the finish line. Callie thought a Pumpkin Patch ring Toss would be fun and Whitey wants to have some Haystacks filled with hidden treasures for the kids to find. You’re right - we have a lot to do today.” Whiskers jumped out of bed, giving his beautiful wife a warm kiss before starting their day.

Orangie, Pearl and Annabella were fixing Pumpkin Belgian Waffles this morning. Rosie, Tabitha, Liliana and Daisy were preparing a homemade fruit syrup topping for the waffles with raisins, cranberries, pumpkin seeds and honey. Whitey took fresh brewed coffee and hot chocolate to the table. Whiskers and Talley came downstairs just in time to help set the table. K. Pete was reading his morning paper, while Raven and Ms. Murphy were checking the shelter cams on their tablets.

Ralph helped his Dad get situated at the table. Thomas said, “I’ll sure be glad when these casts come off my legs. As light as they are, I still feel as if I’m being weighed down.” Whiskers smiled and said, “I remember when my Dad had his cast cut from his leg. He felt like dancing, until he stood up and realized how weak his leg felt. That’s when the physical therapy comes into play. Thomas, you still have a way to go until you’re back on your paws, but knowing you, it will be a quick recovery.”

Thomas smiled and said, “Plus I have the best care anyone could possibly hope for.” Thomas gave Annabella’s arm a loving squeeze as she poured him a cup of coffee.

The breakfast chime rang, thanks to Flower and Ralph and the family sat down to a delicious meal. After saying grace and a prayer for their furiends in need, Whiskers took a bite of his waffles and meowed high praise to the chefs. “This is delicious girls. The perfect meal on a chilly October morning.” The kits always loved to hear praise for their cooking, so they had smiles on their pretty faces from ear to ear.

Whiskers said, “I was so glad to see Oliver settling in the boathouse already. It looks like we could use some bales of hay and straw for him and some of the other animals.” Raven nodded her head and said, “Ms. Murphy and I already contacted the Barn & Feed Supply Store in the village. The proprietor said he would be happy to donate any supplies that we might need. I’ll text him to see if the store has any bales of straw we can pick up.”
K. Pete said, “That’s a great idea girls. I’ll contact some of the other merchants in the village and see if they’d be willing to donate some of their wares for the shelters.”

Flower was unusually quiet this morning so Whiskers asked, “What’s on your mind little buddy? Are you feeling okay?” Flower pushed the food around on his plate and said, “I was just wondering, with school and all, will us kits be able to attend the Harvest Festival and the sleepover?”
Whiskers smiled and said, “Of course you kits are coming. We’ll get you all to school and back, just like we did last week. It wouldn’t be a festival without all of you there.”
Flower and Ralph smiled, high pawing each other. “Thank you Uncle Whiskers. We wanted to set up a booth at the festival with face painting, and Rosie and I can do some portrait sketches of our furiends!” Everyone agreed that sounded wonderful.

Mitch said, “We’ll take the flat bed truck into town today to pick up the straw for the shelters. I have a list of supplies that need replenishing too. I have something I need to discuss that could be a potential problem. Last night when Storm, Inky, Bobby and I were making our rounds of the shelters, we heard some unsettling howls out in the forest. We’re not sure, but it sounded like it might be wolves. Inky said he’s heard the howls before, but there has never been any trouble. I just wanted to let everyone know to be careful and let’s keep a lookout for any problems. With all the recent activity of the forest animals coming and going about the shelters, it might have stirred up the curiosity of some the questionable animals in the forest too.”

Everyone listened intently to what Mitch was saying. Talley finally said, “If there are wolves out there, we have to somehow reach out to them and let them know they are welcome too. Perhaps we should talk with Oliver and hear what he has to say on the matter.”
Thomas nodded and said, “That’s a good idea Talley. If anyone knows the forest animals around here, it will be Oliver. We can’t have the wolves disrupting all the progress we’ve made so far with all the other forest animals. We’ll need to nip this in the bud as soon as possible.”

So with a full day ahead of them, everyone thanked the chefs for a great start to the day and they all headed off to get ready for their day. Talley helped clear the table, while Whiskers went out to warm up the car to drive the kits to school this morning. After buckling everyone in and helping his kitty love into the passenger seat, they drove off. Flower asked his Auntie Talley if she would pick some art supplies in town for their face-painting booth. Talley smiled and told the kids to make her list, which of course they had already done. Flower handed the list to his pretty Auntie. When they arrived to school, Whisker and Talley helped the kits with their school bags, not forgetting their lunches. The first bell had just rung. The kits had hugs for their Auntie and Uncle before heading off. Flower hugged Whiskers and said with a serious look on his face, “Do you think we should be worried about the wolves in the forest Uncle Whiskers?”
Whiskers gave his nephew a warm hug and said, “We always need to be careful little one. But rest assured we’ll make the shelters a safe haven for everyone.” Flower smiled, breathing a sigh of relief. His furiends were waiting for him by the school door as he ran off.

As Whiskers and Talley drove back home, Whiskers said, “I guess we were bound to run into a little trouble. Everything has been going so nicely.” Talley squeezed her husband’s paw and said, “Don’t worry sweetheart. Together our families can overcome any of life’s hurdles.” Whiskers smiled and nodded at his precious Talley. Coming from her lips, he knew anything was possible.

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

To You Only... ♥
To live and love with you and be one furever.
To be near you so I can reach out and touch you.
To love you, laugh with you, cry with you, talk with you,
and be silent with you.
To hold you close every night, waking up to you each morning.
To share my secrets with you and to be honest with you.
To understand and respect you, accepting you for you.
To find shelter in you when I’m afraid, and hold you when I need warmth.
To be with you through all the seasons, walking with you in the sunshine
and cuddling with you in the cold.
To care for you when you are ill, and to be joyful with you when you are happy.
To grow old with you, and to be with you until the end of time.

With you only, I want all these things.
For you only, I would do all these things.
To you only, all my love.

The sun was streaming in their bedroom window
when Whiskers and Talley opened their eyes. Whiskers kissed his beloved wife good morning. Whiskers said, “Before I forget sweetheart, I was reading your last blog to me yesterday, mewing about someone moving into the boathouse, but you left me hanging. Would I be guessing right to say it was Oliver moving in? That would be wonderful, just like Flower and Ralph predicted. Those boys are already in tune with the needs of our wildlife furiends.”

Talley kissed Whiskers and said, “It looks like it’s going to be another nice day for working around the shelters. We can check to see how Theodore, Rocky, Violet and Melba are doing. I have a couple of nice pillows that Chloe made for us, that I’d like to give to Melba - a sort of welcome gift and to make the shelter a bit more cozy. It will be wonderful having them so close to our house. I know we will all be great furiends.”

While Whiskers was running the shower for him and his kitty love, he said, “I wonder if we can watch the Blue Angel’s show that your Dad is attending, on TV? I know it won’t be as exciting as actually being there, but it would be great to see.”
Talley smiled, checking with her paw to make sure the water was warm. She said, “We’ll ask Pete. Maybe we can watch it in the theater.”

Pearl and Annabella were in the kitchen helping Rosie, Liliana, Tabitha and Daisy prepare “Huevos Rancheros con Salsa Ranchera, thin corn tortillas topped with eggs and salsa ranchera, onions, tomatoes & jalapenos. The hot spices were filling the air. Pearl laughed and said, “This meal should clear out our sinuses.” Annabella said, “We’ll make the kits dishes without the jalapeno peppers. I’m not sure any of us have ever eaten hot peppers.”
Whitey was making coffee, overhearing the conversation. She giggled and said, “No time like the present! Your family will get used to trying international cuisine around this house. We like to keep an open mind when it comes to eating.”

Orangie took the delicious Mexican coffee and hot chocolate to the table. Flower and Ralph were already seated at the table licking their lips. Flower said, “Thank you Auntie Orangie. The hot chocolate smells like almonds!” Orangie patted her nephew on his head and said, “You have a very good nose. I used almond milk this morning.” The boys took a sip and both exclaimed, “Ummmm!” Orangie laughed and wiped their little faces that were covered with cream. She said, “It’s time for the breakfast chime.” No need to say it twice. Ralph and Flower were up like two shots.

As soon as everyone was seated, the family joined paws to say grace and gives thanks to God for another day together. Whiskers could hardly wait to tell his family about the messages he had received from Baron Monty and Angel K. Malachi.

Whiskers said, “I shared with our furiends, the story about the Forest Council at the shelter cave. Here’s what Monty said...
Everyone at the table smiled happily upon hearing Monty’s reaction to the great news. Whiskers said, now here is what our furiend Angel Malachi had to say...
My wife, Ana, and I read K. Pete's story of the meeting with the fur-folk of the forest. As always, he did bring everything to life and we already feel as though we know some of the forest kindred that will take part in the virtual caves this winter. You know, of course, that we want to be part of this compassionate undertaking. We are, as you know, quite well off and would contribute wherever there is need, also with our physical skills and labour. We think this project was intended by the Lord and he put us all here to help our fellow fur furiends and their families. We give a more hearty "hurrah" for you and Pete and everyone else that convened this gathering in the forest. Please know that you both have our complete cooperation in this effort. And thank you for sharing Pete's story with us.
Whiskers was smiling when he said, “I also shared the Forest Council story with K. Spongie and Neekah Boo. I just know they’ll enjoy it too. The next time we have them all over for dinner, they’ll be up to date on what’s happening with shelter havens.”

Whiskers asked K. Pete about watching the Blue Angels on TV in the theater. K. Pete said he would check to see if the air show was being televised. The whole family was excited at the prospect of watching the air show. Callie and Angel Maggie were already starting to plan some snacks to serve.

Whiskers and Talley volunteered for kitchen clean up this morning. Whiskers helped Talley with her apron, giving her a soft kiss on her slender neck as he tied her apron strings. He whispered sweet nothings into her delicate ears.

Music by the Moon
If I could hold you close
When the dark abides,
And your eyes behold
At the break of light,
I'd write music by the moon
And songs by the sun,
And their melody and tune
Would ring you're the one.

Whiskers and Talley were both wide awake,
still bubbling with excitement from the turnout to the forest council meeting yesterday. Whiskers said, “I was so proud of Thomas and K. Pete yesterday. The talks they gave last night to the forest animals were very well received. I could see hope in the eyes of the animals as they listened. It literally brought tears to my eyes.”
Talley smiled and said, “I knew if anyone could reach the hearts of the animals, it would be my brother. I know God must have had a hand in the events that led up to this too. Having Thomas there to tell his story sealed the deal. I don’t think we would have been able to reach out to so many animals without Thomas. It was unfortunate what him and his family had to go through, but it all seems to be falling into place. Now we can concentrate on getting the shelters ready for the coming winter.”

Whiskers kissed his beautiful wife and said, “I love being a part of this family and all the goodness that ensues. I’ll bet Theodore and his family will be the first to move into the shelters. Rocky is a great kit and it was wonderful to finally meet his sister Violet and his sweet Mom Melba.”
Whiskers was quiet for a minute, then said, “We owe a great deal of thanks to Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy. Whatever worries and doubts the animals had before the meeting, seeing and hearing the Angels speak took care of that. Their heavenly presence filled the cave with such a peaceful and loving feeling - it was too strong to ignore, even for the most skeptical.”

As the two kitties in love got up out of bed, ready to start their day, Whiskers helped Talley with her robe. He said, “I almost forgot -the hockey games were fantastic last night. VFP and KCK both won. You and the Angels played great last night. I know Orangie had a wonderful time with the Pawty Animals coming with us to the arena. Her and Hedley seem to really be enjoying each other’s company.”
Talley smiled and said, “They do make a cute orange couple. We should make a note to invite Hedley and his brothers over to house more often.” Whiskers kissed Talley and said, “You’re the prettiest little matchmaker ever.”

All the girls were busy in the kitchen this morning. On the menu for today were Coconut Pecan Pancakes drizzled with a light caramel sauce, served with egg white omelettes filled with Italian Sausage, onions, and mozzarella and topped with a marinara sauce. Orangie was preparing her special Apple-Catnip muffins in the oven and Whitey was fixing a special amaretto cappuccino. The kitchen was filled with the fragrant smells of delicious spices. Pearl made hot chocolate for the kids extra special by flavoring it with amaretto too and of course lots of fresh whipped cream, just the way Flower and Ralph loved it!

The family was already seated at the table, sipping their cappuccinos by the time Talley and Whiskers came downstairs. Flower wiped the whipped cream from his tiny face and got up to give his Auntie Talley and Uncle Whiskers a hug. He said, “Ralph and I were thinking we should build a special nest in one of the shelters for our new furiend Oliver the owl.” Ralph nodded and got up from his chair to show his Uncle Whiskers a sketch of the nest they had in mind. Thomas smiled and said, “The boys have quite a few good ideas to make the shelters more comfortable for all the different animals. I can see being in school has really paid off for the kits. They always seem to have their thinking caps on.”
All the kits were beaming with pride. Whiskers said, “That’s a great idea. I wonder if Oliver would be more comfortable in the boathouse since it has the most spacious roof? I can already tell I’ll need to do some reading on how our furiends live. Meeting Serena the vixen and her kits was a first for me. I’m ashamed to admit I have no idea how to make a fox feel at home.”
Flower smiled and said, “Don’t worry Uncle Whiskers. We’ve all been studying about wildlife and their natural habitats in our biology class. We’ll be happy to teach you!”
Whiskers laughed and said, “These kits get smarter and smarter every day. Our world is going to flourish in their paws.”

After the breakfast bell was sounded, the family joined paws to say grace. They gave thanks to the Lord for the successful meeting with the animals and prayed for better times during this coming winter. Whiskers added a special healing prayer for their furiend K. SpongeBob’s Mom Lynn.

The main topic of conversation was of preparing the shelters. Raven and Ms. Murphy took out their tablets and said they had seen on the video cam, several different animals already checking out the shelters. Mitch said, “I actually ran into Theodore and Rocky this morning when I was making my rounds. Theodore asked if his family could start to move into the first shelter in the next few days. Rocky said he wanted to be as close to our house as possible. I told them it sounded fine to me and asked if they needed our help. Theodore thanked me and said he had it handled. Theodore told me his family doesn’t have many possessions, so him and Rocky would only need to make one trip. Then he’d like to move Melba and Violet in first, so the girls can settle in.”

K. Pete clapped his paws and said, “That’s wonderful news Mitch. We’ll all be doing odds and ends at the shelters today, so we’re bound to meet up with Theodore and his family at some point. I’m sure we can do something to help.” Everyone nodded in agreement at the table, eating quickly so they could get started.

Whiskers said to K. Pete and Thomas, “I just wanted to tell you guys again what great speeches you both made at the council meeting last night. My Mom loved it so much, she printed it out and is going to take it next door later today to read to Ebony and Sugar Bear. Mom thinks Abarna, their new Mom, will enjoy it too. I’d like to share it too with K. Spongie and his family. His Mom Lynn would enjoy reading it too while she is laid up in bed. But I wanted to make sure it was okay with you K. Pete. Just let me know dear brother.”

Whiskers and Talley insisted on cleaning the kitchen after a great meal. Callie gave Whiskers her apron and a peck on his cheek. She said, “Thanks brother. We all want to get dressed so we can help out wherever we’re needed today.”

Whiskers washed dishes while his lovely Talley dried. Today there were happy smiles on their faces. Whiskers kissed Talley and mewed, “I knew when we got married, it was the start of a wonderful year. We really are truly blessed.”

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

I Am So Blessed
I am so blessed!
Freely your love comes
Holding nothing back
The times so sweet
Constantly desiring more

I am so blessed!
Pure, simple love
Little things most cherished
Overjoyed by those acts
You view as normal

I am so blessed!
Special moments, little secrets
Insignificant to others
Meaningful to us alone
Practically our own little world

I am so blessed!
The same things enjoyed
Laughter comes easily
Joking frequently
Loving perpetually

I am so blessed!
Stumbling occasionally
The hurt forgotten
Forgiven always
Unconditional love

Attention Hairballz,
Attention Hairballz,
Thundie got off to a slow start but after he figured it out, did a great job on the FB Group. A. K. Mali did great leading us on CC as well.

Up next on FB is Coco, and K. Winston is leading us on CC.

With our 4th year anniversary coming up Dec, 15th, I am trying to put together a show on our FB Group. They have never seen us in action, so we can redo the same pictures and stunts from the last one we did oat the castle. Any idea's or suggestions appreciated. Mom still has pics and some of the notes to work with.

Other than that , wishing everyone a Happy Halloween and will be looking forward to sharing the highway with you.

then we won't have to worry about more than cake and cupcakes for the event for a change and letting us actually participate in events not having to run here and there to make sure things are going right! this way maybe pete can run some of the games and we'll leave steve for the others and mali for inside stuff if it's not warm enough, but now they're saying showers, but temps into the upper 60s and lower 70s which beats the rain and lower 50s of the past few days with a stiff northeasterly wind making it colder than it actually was. sure appreciate it and if you think of anybody else to help you out, well appoint them at your leisure! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Whiskers and Talley had gone over to the
school to speak with the teachers about letting Flower, Ralph and the girls out of school early. The teachers were more than happy to oblige, commenting that the kids were all at the top of their class. Of course there was homework to be done over the weekend, so Whiskers and Talley collected all the materials, assuring the teachers the work would get finished over the weekend.

Flower, Ralph, Rosie, Liliana, Tabitha and Daisy were waiting for their Auntie and Uncle by their classroom door. It was recess time so the kids proudly showed them around the room. On the classroom wall several A+ homework assignments done by the kids were hanging up for display.

Flower and Rosie pointed out a few of their drawings that were also on display. Whiskers and Talley gave the kids big hugs, so very proud to see how well they were all doing.

The drive home was one of excited chatter. Ralph and Flower were anxious at being able to attend the Forest Council meeting. Raven and Ms. Murphy had promised the girls they would all be watching the meeting via the video cams.

When they arrived home, K. Pete and Mitch were out in the front getting the stretcher ready to carry Thomas. The kids jumped out of the car, running to hug their family. After parking the car, Whiskers walked over and said to his brother, “Do you think we need to take the wheelchair for Thomas to sit in once were at the cave?”
K. Pete replied, “Already done brother. Mitch and I took the wheelchair over while you were picking up the kids.” Mitch was smiling when he said, “We had quite a hike this morning. We’ll certainly be getting some great exercise today.”
K. Pete laughed and said, “We wanted to make sure everything was still in place at the cave too. It’s a fine day for hiking. We shouldn’t have any problem getting Thomas over to the cave safely.

Whitey and Orangie came out from the house, insisting that everyone eat before leaving. Whiskers smiled and said, “That’s sounds like a good idea to me.”

Callie and Angel Maggie were just finishing setting the table. The girls had prepared sandwich wraps using Lemon Grass Tortillas, stuffed with sliced chicken breast, red bell peppers, cilantro, feta cheese and cucumbers. After saying grace, the family ate heartily.

Raven and Ms. Murphy said all the cameras were working fine in the cave and they would be recording the council meeting. Talley turned to Whiskers and K. Pete and asked, “Do you think it would be all right if Annabelle and I tag along just for the hike?” Whiskers wiped his mouth with his napkin and said, “Absolutely! I don’t think K. Pete, Mitch and I will be in the meeting until Thomas and Theodore call us. We can all wait outside the cave together.” Talley smiled and kissed her beloved husband. Whiskers kissed Talley’s delicate paw and said, “Besides, when the forest animals take one look at you girls, they’ll all want to be members of our community.”

K. Pete got up from the table first and said, “Okay, let’s get this show on the road.” He didn’t have to say that twice. Flower and Ralph leaped up from the table, running to pull on their hiking boots.

Everyone assembled in the front yard, helping to get Thomas comfortable on the stretcher. Thomas kept grumbling about how he wished he could walk. Annabelle kissed her husband and said, “You’ll be back on your paws soon my love. But until then, let us all help you.” The boys lifted Thomas off the ground and started down the road.

Callie gave Talley and Annabelle an extra backpack to carry filled with fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. Callie said, “To put by the cave entrance. I always say the way to any animals heart is through his tummy.” Talley laughed, kissing her sister and throwing the backpack over her shoulder.

The trek through the forest was arduous, but the boys managed without a single complaint. In fact, Flower and Ralph started to sing and soon everyone joined in.

It was still early afternoon when they arrived to the shelter cave. The family found the place deserted. Thomas got off the stretcher slowly with Annabelle & Ralph assisting him. Thomas said, “That was a great ride. I just need to wake my legs back up. They seemed to have enjoyed it so much, they fell asleep!”
K. Pete said, “Take your time Thomas and move slowly. Let’s all go inside and light up some of lanterns so Theodore knows we’re here.”
Talley grabbed Whiskers arm and said, “Annabelle and I are going to find a spot right up there on the hillside.” Talley pointed to one of their favorite picnic spots. She said, “That way we’ll keep out of sight, but we’ll see you if you need us.’ Whiskers nodded and said, “Here sweetheart. I brought an extra blanket, a thermos with hot tea and a bag with mixed nuts. Take it for you and Annabelle.” Talley kissed Whiskers and mewed, “I’ll go set this up on the hill and be right back. We still have a while before sunset.”

Whiskers, K. Pete and Mitch helped Thomas into the cave. Ralph and Flower lit the lanterns, setting up the chocolate chip cookies on a table by the entrance. Both boys couldn’t resist eating a few as they giggled. Whiskers helped Thomas into his wheelchair, knowing his legs had to be throbbing by now. They all heard someone coming through the cave entrance and were thrilled to see Theodore. Right behind him a big owl flew inside, landing right on the table next to Thomas.

Thomas beamed when he saw it was his furiend Oliver. “How are you doing Oliver? It’s wonderful to see you.” Theodore came inside, shaking paws with the boys. Theodore introduced Oliver to everyone. Oliver held out a wing welcoming everyone. Oliver turned to Thomas and said, “Hwhoooo, whooooo! You look great my furiend. Theodore told me all about your brush with death. Many of us thought for sure you had met your maker.”
Thomas smiled and told Oliver how he owed his life to these felines. He pointed to K. Pete and Whiskers who were respectfully quiet as they listened. Just then Talley and Annabelle walked inside the cave, followed by Angel Sylvie, Angel Lucy and Angel Maggie. Theodore ran over to welcome the girls, ushering them over to meet Oliver. When Oliver saw the Angels, his eyes grew large. He hopped off the table to bow in reverence at their feet. After a few moments, Oliver raised his head and said, “Hwhoooo, whooooo. This community of felines is truly a heavenly realm.” The Angels smiled wrapping their wings around their new furiend.

Talley said, “We saw some animals coming over the hill. Should we take our places outside?” Oliver said, “That won’t be necessary my dear. Many of the animals in need of help are felines just like you. Unfortunately many of them were abandoned from their human homes and many are simply lost. You are all welcome to stay.”

Flower raised his paw to speak. Oliver smiled at the little skunk and said, “Yes young man. You may speak and I might add, you are extremely well mannered.” Flower smiled and asked, “Will all the animals that are coming to the meeting be able to understand one another?”
Oliver smiled and said, “Absolutely little skunk. Just as you and Ralph are able to understand the felines you live with. When animals get together for the good of the forest, we all speak the same language.”
K. Pete stepped forward and said, “That is good to know my furiend. We hope you, Thomas and Theodore can convince the forest animals that we are here only to help them. As I’m sure you know, there are signs that this coming winter will be a cold one. Some of it is human science but a lot of it is folk knowledge, the fuzz on caterpillars, the cats getting thicker coats. The squirrels storing more food, thinks like that. We are preparing for the worst. We all know what’s it like to need shelter and food, especially during extreme weather. Our family has all we could ever need. We simply want to pass our good fortunate along to others.”

Oliver nodded knowingly and said, “Theodore, Thomas, I think you two have stumbled upon Nirvana for us animals. I have a feeling our lives will never be the same. Thank you K. Pete and family, from the bottom of my heart. Now let’s get ready to convince those whom will benefit from these gifts from Heaven.”

Talley had tears of happiness in her pretty green eyes as she listened. Whiskers gave his beloved a big, warm hug and said, “I think we’re about to make a big difference in this small part of our world. I love you sweet Talley.”

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

Love Is ♥
Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast.
It is not proud, it is not rude.
It is not self-seeking.

Love is not easily angered.
It keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil,
but it rejoices in the truth.

Love always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always preserves.

Love never fails.

Happy to wake up in their own bed,
Whiskers and Talley lay snuggled in each other’s arms. Whiskers said, “It sure was fun at the sleepover and Sport’s Day at our furiends house, but it’s always nice to be back home. It also makes me think how imperative it is we get in touch with Theodore. Soon it will be cold again and I worry about the animals in the forest having a warm place to lay their heads.”
Talley nodded and said, “You and I can take a hike down to the shelter cave and see if might run into Rocky. I would say we should leave a note for him, but I don’t think Rocky can read yet.”
Whiskers smiled and said, “I like how you just said ‘yet.’ So you do believe Rocky and his family will accept our help and hopefully become a part of the community.”
Talley smiled and mewed, “I always have hope my love.”
Whiskers gave his precious Talley a deep kiss, wishing every living creature had the opportunity to be as happy as he was. The two kitties in love got out of bed ready to start their day together.

Whitey and Orangie were preparing Buttermilk Pancakes this morning with the help of Tabitha, Liliana, Daisy and Rosie. Tabitha and Liliana were at the stove preparing turkey bacon, while Daisy and Rosie were expertly layering parfait cups with sliced strawberries, granola and yogurt. Whitey asked Tabitha, “Do we still have some the homemade butter you girls made?” Tabitha clapped her paws, stepping off her stool by the stove and running to the refrigerator for the jar of creamy butter. Whitey gave her little niece a big hug and said, “Perfect! Let’s put some of the butter into small dishes for everyone to top off the pancakes.” Tabitha nodded and Rosie went to the cupboard for the small dishes to assist.
Pearl and Annabelle smiled as they watched their girls working so well together. Pearl hugged Annabelle and said, “I only hope we can share our good fortune and happy lives with others.” Annabelle nodded and said, “I believe we will sweet Pearl. I have faith in my Thomas. With the help of this family, anything is possible.”
Pearl and Annabelle had just finished brewing mocha coffees for the family with just a pinch of cocoa powder and white sugar to give it a chocolaty flavor. For the kids, Pearl added a teaspoon of butterscotch syrup to their usual cocoa to create Hot Scotch Cocoas, topped with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry. Breakfast was ready to be served.

Flower and Ralph jumped up to ring the mealtime chime when there was a soft knock on the front door. Flower and Ralph exclaimed, “We’ll get it!” K. Pete got up and said, “Let me go with you boys. We weren’t expecting any visitors this morning.”
K. Pete opened the door and Ralph yelled, “It’s Rocky!”

Rocky stood shyly at the door holding a bouquet of wild flowers. He smiled at Ralph and Flower, then cleared his throat to address K. Pete. “Hello Mr. Pete. I hope I’m not intruding. These are for your family.” Rocky handed the flowers to K. Pete, looking very nervous and shy.
K. Pete said, “Thank you Rocky. The flowers are lovely! Come on in. You’re just in time for breakfast.”
Suddenly Rocky was all smiles. He wiped his paws before stepping inside. Flower and Ralph covered him in hugs and any apprehension Rocky had before, went right out the door. He was amongst furiends.

Annabella got up to set an extra place setting and the family welcomed their little guest to the table. Whiskers smiled and said, “We were all just thinking about you and your Dad. We hope you brought good news.”
Rocky smiled, sitting down and nodding his head.

Whitey said, “Before we listen to Rocky’s good news, let’s say grace first so we can eat while the food is still hot.” The family and furiends joined paws, bowing their heads to give thanks for another day together.
Talley smiled at Rocky who was looking at his plate hungrily and said, “Let’s all enjoy our meal before we hear what Rocky has to tell us.” Rocky took his fork and ate with a voracious appetite. Angel Maggie said, “Now that’s the way I like to see someone eat. The ultimate compliment to any chef.”
Breakfast was delicious and everyone thanked the lovely chefs for another fine meal.
Thomas spoke first and said, “Okay Rocky, do you have word from your Dad yet about the forest council meeting? We’ve all been concerned with the change in the weather.”
Rocky nodded and said, “My Dad has been gone for days, trying to speak to all the forest animals and gather them together for the meeting. My Dad finally came back home last night. He wants me to ask all of you if the meeting could be held this evening before sundown. That’s when most of the animals are done gathering food for the day. My Dad wants to make sure Thomas will be at the cave to speak to the animals. Dad also wanted me to ask if Mr. Pete and Mr. Whiskers could be there. The animals are curious about who is responsible for this good fortune.”

K. Pete and Thomas nodded, saying they could definitely make it happen today. Rocky sat looking at Angel Lucy, Angel Sylvie and Angel Maggie, mesmerized by their angelic wings. Rocky said in a very low voice, “My Dad wanted to know if the Angels could come too? He knows that is asking a lot, but he thinks their presence will help keep everyone calm.”

Angels Sylvie, Lucy-Fur and Maggie flew over to Rocky’s side, gently wrapping their wings around him. Angel Maggie said, “Of course we’ll be there dear Rocky. Anything we can do at all, you and your family simply have to ask.”
Rocky smiled and said, “Oh thank you sweet Angels. My Dad will be forever grateful to you.”

Orangie came out of the kitchen with four to-go-boxes for Rocky and his family. Rocky was beaming by now. He wondered why he had ever been nervous in the first place.

Mitch and Pearl would be driving the kids to school today. Flower and Ralph hugged Rocky, happy they would be seeing him later.

Whiskers, K. Pete and Thomas walked Rocky outside. Thomas asked Rocky, “Do you have any idea how many animals your father was able to round up?”
Rocky shook his head and said, “No Mr. Thomas. But I do know Dad was able to get help from our furiend Oliver, the oldest and wisest owl in the forest. Dad said Oliver has seen with his own eyes the heavenly realm in the northeast, but has never been brave enough to approach it. Oliver is very interested in meeting K. Pete, the feline who flew down from the sky to save you.”
Thomas smiled and said, “Ah yes, I know Oliver well. He is known as the furiend to all in the forest. Your Dad Theodore was very smart in seeking out his help. Be safe getting back home Rocky and let your Dad know we’ll be there this evening.”

Rocky waved goodbye and disappeared into the woods. K. Pete said, “Well, we have the shelter cave prepared for the meeting. Our main job today will be getting Thomas to the cave safely on the stretcher we devised.” Whiskers said, “We’ll have to wait until the kids get out school. We can’t go without Flower and Ralph. Maybe Talley and I can get the kids out a little early. We’ll go speak to their teachers this morning and pick up any extra homework that they’ll be missing out on.”

Thomas nodded and said, “I know the main topic of our meeting will be to address the fears the forest animals have of being captured in the shelters. We have to convince them we don’t have ulterior motives. The animals are very cautious and wary and rightly so. Being cautious is the only way to survive out in the forest. Kindness is a rare commodity to them. I know I still have a hard time believing it too, but here I am. I’m hopeful once they hear my tale and see me in the flesh, they’ll just have to believe.”

Whiskers and K. Pete walked slowly up the driveway with Thomas on his crutches. Talley stood at the front door waving, looking anxious to hear what the day held. Whiskers smiled and said to Thomas, “See my beautiful wife standing there? Everyday when I look at her I have to pinch myself that my life isn’t just a wonderful dream. You simply have to believe in goodness in the world. Then it will find you.”

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

Love ♥
And in Life's noisiest hour,
There whispers still the ceaseless Love of Thee,
The heart's Self-solace and soliloquy.
You mould my Hopes, you fashion me within ;
And to the leading Love-throb in the Heart
Thro' all my Being, thro' my pulse's beat ;
You lie in all my many Thoughts, like Light,
Like the fair light of Dawn, or summer Eve
On rippling Stream, or cloud-reflecting Lake.
And looking to the Heaven, that bends above you,
How oft! I bless the Lot that made me love you.

- by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Whiskers woke up to the sound of the wind
blowing the tree limbs against the window. He had Talley wrapped tightly in his arms. Their sleeping bag built for two was warm and very cozy. It was still early but he could already see some kitties milling around the room, rolling up their sleeping bags to get ready for some indoor Sport’s games. Talley opened her beautiful green eyes, kissing her husband good morning. Whiskers said, “I smell coffee and bacon in the air. Let’s go see if they need help in the kitchen.” Talley laughed and said, “Oh Whiskers, do you mean help cooking or help eating?” Whiskers kissed Talley and said, “Both!”

When Whiskers and Talley got to the kitchen, Sandy, Ana and Haley were at the stove preparing a large batch of scrambled eggs mixed with fresh vegetables from their garden. Several skillets of bacon and sausage were sizzling on the grill. Angel Maggie and Callie were making their delicious Bacon Cinnabuns. Angel Maggie set the cinnabuns on one of the large kitchen tables, all big and fluffy just screaming to be eaten. Callie was making cinnamon spiced Café Lattes to compliment the pastries. Callie told Whiskers and Talley to take the coffee out to the guests and not to forget the hot chocolate for the kids. While passing the warming trays, Whiskers couldn’t resist grabbing a sausage when no one was looking :)

Whiskers and Talley took some hot drinks downstairs to the cellar where the festivities had already begun. Since it was still a bit chilly outside with a strong wind, many of the kitties were playing table tennis and air hockey. Several of the kittens had enjoyed the movie “That Darn Cat” so much last night, they were all curled up on their bedrolls watching it again. The hot chocolate was just what they needed.

Whiskers and Talley went back upstairs after making sure everyone had coffee and hot chocolate. K. Pete and the rest of the family were up and awake, ready for a delicious breakfast. After finding a table big enough for their extended family, they all sat down to a hearty meal.

Ralph and Rosie had the Canon DSLR cameras their Uncle Pete had bought them. They wanted to take lots of pictures of their new furiends. Flower had shown them how to use the cameras and they were fast becoming experts. They looked adorable with the cameras hanging around their little necks. Liliana, Tabitha and Daisy made sure everyone tried the fresh creamy butter they had made. Whiskers spread some of the butter on his toast and gave the girls two paws up. The kittens were thrilled.

Raven took out her tablet and made a Skype phone call to Annabelle and Thomas who had stayed back at the house.

Even though Thomas’ new cast was much lighter and made it easier for him to get around, no one wanted him to over extend himself. When Ralph and Rosie saw their Mom and Dad on the phone, they jumped up and down and told them they were having a wonderful time, but they missed them. Thomas smiled and told his kids to behave themselves and have a great time. Annabelle said Thomas had had a very restful night sleeping in his new cast. She blew a kiss to her kids and then signed off.

Whiskers was enjoying his delicious meal and all the laughter and excitement that filled the house. Whiskers said, “I heard from my Mom this morning and have a funny story to tell. As you know, last night was Ebony and Sugar Bear’s first night in their new furever home. My Mom was coming home from taking a short walk this morning and when she passed the neighbor’s house, she thought she would see the two cats in the bay window, but she didn’t. When she got home there was a message on her phone from Abarna, the neighbor’s Mother. Abarna sounded upset when she said she couldn’t find Ebony and Sugar Bear anywhere in the house. She was afraid they had somehow gotten out the door. So my Mom grabbed a flashlight and went over to the house. Abarna was visibly upset. Mom called out to Ebony and could hear nothing. So Mom went upstairs and sure enough she saw an open closet. Since the houses on the street are pretty much the same, my Mom knew where to look. She shined the flashlight in the closet and saw two sets of eyes staring back at her. Yep, it was Ebony and Sugar Bear. Well, Abarna was elated. So Mom sat down on the ground talking to the cats and they eventually came out. My Mom showed Abarna a couple of other places the cats might use to hide, assuring her cats just need to have a “safe place” for quiet time occasionally. “
Whiskers took a sip of his delicious coffee and continued. “My Mom remembered the story of Talley once hiding out in her Mom’s lingerie drawer. It took a frantic search before she was finally found. Remember that sweetheart?” Talley nodded her head with a sheepish smile. Talley said, “I can never resist the feel of silk and lace and the scent of lovely perfumes.”
Whiskers nodded and said, “So my Mom told Abarna to just remember cats like to explore, so if there is an open closet or drawer, don’t ever shut it before first checking to see if a cat might be napping in there. I myself got trapped inside a closet once, so my pawrents learned the hard way too. So my Mom apologized for not remembering to warn them of how kitties like to hide and said goodbye to Ebony & Sugar Bear. But not before Ebony jumped into Mom’s lap for a good head rub. So all seems to be going well for them.”

After breakfast and everyone pitching in to clear the table, the family thanked their hosts for a delicious start to the day. K. Pete, Mitch and Pearl were going to take the kids down to the cellar to play some games. Raven, Ms. Murphy, Whitey and Orangie were going to check out garage where they saw a game of Twister was just starting. The girls loved getting themselves tied up in precarious positions with their furiends, eventually all falling to the ground.
Callie and Angel Maggie were going to sit in the warm living room and start planning for their Friday Hockey feast. The girls were leaning towards preparing a Soup, Salad and Sandwich night.

Whiskers took Talley’s paw and said, “Why don’t we put on our jackets and take a walk outside. It’s not raining yet and it looks a little chilly, but the trees look so beautiful with the leaves falling. Plus it gives me a good excuse to hold my precious love tightly in my arms.” Whiskers went to his overnight bag and pulled out two pairs of mittens, two wool hats and two knitted scarves. He said, “I came prepared. I didn’t want my sweetheart to get cold.” Talley smiled as Whiskers helped her put on her hat and mittens. When Whiskers opened the door, it flew open from the gusting wind, along with a bunch of leaves. Whiskers and Talley braced themselves and walked outside quickly, shutting the door behind them. Whiskers meowed loudly over the howling winds, “Just hang on to me my love. I’ll keep you warm and safe.” Talley kissed her beloved husband and mewed, “I know you will sweetheart.”

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

Love Me Long ♥
As long as you love me
I’ll stay by your side
I’ll be your companion
Your furiend and your guide

As long as you love me
As long as you care
I’ll do anything for you
I’ll go anywhere

I’ll bring you the sunshine
I’ll comfort your fears
I’ll gather up rainbows
To chase all your tears

As long as furever
My love will be true
For as long as you love me
I’ll only love you

Whiskers and Talley were setting the table
for lunch with the family. Angel Maggie and Callie had made some Chicken Vegetable Barley soup, using only the freshest vegetables from their garden. The delicious smells permeated the house and the smell of baking bread made Whiskers tummy start to growl. Talley laughed and said, “It’s almost time to eat sweetheart. Tell your tummy to be patient.” Whiskers smiled at his lovely wife and said, “You try telling my tummy sweetheart! Maybe it will listen to you.”
Talley patted her husband’s tummy and pretended to talk to it. She said, “If you promise to be quiet Mr. Tummy, I have some apple pie from yesterday with your name on it.”
Whiskers laughed and said, “Okay Mr. Tummy! You better put a lid on it or I’ll muffle you myself.”

Whitey and Orangie brought out tall glasses of mint tea to set on the table and a basket with sweet red grapes. Whiskers took a couple of grapes to pop into his mouth, when Whitey politely slapped his paw and said, “You wait until everyone is here brother. Were you born in a barn?!” Whiskers apologized and went to the kitchen to see how he could help.
Callie told her brother to go call the family to lunch. Just then Whisker’s cell phone rang and it was his Mom. Whiskers put his phone on speaker so his sisters could hear. Whisker’s Mom had gotten back from the next-door neighbor’s house. Ebony and Sugar Bear were in their new home settling in. Their Mom wasn’t sure if she was tired out from her bout with the flu, or sad at leaving her furbabies at their new home, or both; but she was going to lay down to shut her eyes. When Whiskers ended the call, Talley said, “Your Mom sounded a little sad. She’ll miss Ebony and Sugar Bear for awhile, but when she sees how happy they are in their new home, she’ll be happy again.”
Whiskers nodded and said, “My Dad said it’s probably a good thing my Mom never had kids of her own. I thought to myself, well what are we, chump change?!”
Callie smiled and said, “Angel Maggie said her and Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie will stop by Mom’s house and sprinkle some Angel dust. That should brighten her spirits!”

Pearl and Mitch arrived with the kids home from school. Whiskers smiled when he heard all the happy chatter and laughter that could only be Flower, Liliana, Tabitha, Daisy, Ralph and Rosie. Whiskers whispered to Talley, “I should make a recording of the kids happy banter and send it to my Mom.” Talley said, “They certainly do liven up a house.”
