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

Whiskers and Talley had awakened early
for their busy day. Today two very dear furiends, Fluffinella and Joey Brown were to be married. It was a joyous occasion, but yesterday’s sadness of Neekah Boo’s sister Fatty crossing the Rainbow Bridge still weighed heavily on their hearts. Whiskers watched Talley as she laid out her elegant gown on the bed for the wedding. Talley kissed her beloved husband and asked, “Will you be wearing your formal Feline Force Uniform today or will you be wearing your black and white tuxedo?” Talley walked to the closet, turning back to look at Whiskers and saying, “Either one is fine sweetheart. I had them both dry cleaned days ago.” Whiskers got up from sitting on the bed and took Talley into his arms. He mewed, “Thank you for always taking such good care of me my love. Just looking at you every morning puts a song in my heart. I can’t imagine starting a day without you. I’ll wear whatever you prefer.” Whiskers gave his beautiful wife a deep kiss. Talley smiled, running her paws through Whisker’s furry head and said, “But first, I wanted to check Cat Channel on my tablet to see if Neekah Boo is our Cat of the Day. I was praying she would be. I know it won’t erase the grief her and her family are going through right now, but I think it will be nice for her to know she is loved and never alone.”

Whiskers sat next to Talley as she pulled out her tablet and pawed in Cat Channel. Wonder of all wonders, there was beautiful Neekah Boo’s face in the prestigious place of honor. Whiskers meowed and picked up Talley, spinning his beautiful wife in the air! Whiskers said, “I just knew when I read K. Pete’s blog yesterday, reaching out to our furiends about Neekah Boo; I just knew it would happen!” Whiskers hugged Talley and said, “I know it won’t take away the sadness from any of us, but I know for a fact- it helps to know so many of your furiends are praying for you!”

The dining room was a hubbub of activity - but not from a delicious feast being served, (which was usually the case in this house). No, this morning the kitties were milling around in their formal wear, anticipating the wondrous event that was about to unfold.

Angel Maggie and Callie insisted everyone have a bite of the catnip muffins and cream cheese they had set on the table, and the kids had to drink their hot chocolate and finish a whole bran muffin. The girls were adamant about the kids eating. Whiskers smiled and said, “What should I do if my tummy starts growling during the ceremony?” Callie and Angel Maggie looked at each other, shaking their heads. Callie said, “Okay! I’ll pack a small bag with emergency snacks, just in case.” Flower smiled at his Uncle, giving him a high paw. Talley smiled demurely at her sisters and mewed, “What are we ever going to do with our boys?!” Callie whispered to her sister Angel Maggie, “I have to admit...with Whiskers , K. Pete, Mitch and Flower in our family, we have the best taste tasters in the world!”

It was time to leave for the joyous occasion. Whiskers and K. Pete would be taking two vehicles. They would be picking up Hedley and his family on their way to the event. Orangie was thrilled to be having Hedley as her escort. Orangie turned to Talley and asked, “How do I look? Is my fur all in place?” Talley smiled and hugged her sister. She said. “Orangie, get ready to knock the socks off of Hedley.” Orangie kissed Talley and mewed, “Coming from you beautiful sister, that means a lot!”

Whiskers helped Talley into the car, carefully pushing the flowing skirt from her dress into the car. Whiskers kissed Talley once more and said, “Will you marry beautiful kitty?” Talley giggled and mewed, “Oh Whiskers, we are married!” Whiskers smiled and said, “I know my love. I just have to make sure every now and then, that this isn’t all just a wonderful dream.”

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

A sprinkle of stardust, a midnight so blue
And nowhere would I rather be than with you.

Two kittens act playful, emotions so pure
Their stares quite confused, yet strangely so sure.

Two youths seem so nervous, lust deep in their eyes
Another year older, the flame never dies.

Two lovers dance slowly, a passionate gaze
Love sparks so bright, a fire ablaze.

Two elders are quiet, time’s promise was kept
From deep in their hearts the love never left.

A blissful sensation, a twilight anew,
And nowhere would I rather be than with you.

It broke Whisker’s heart in two to see his
beautiful wife cry. K. Pete had let them both know early this morning of the crossing of their dear furiend Fatty. Whiskers had held Talley tightly in his arms as they cried, until they both fell into a blessed sleep. Now as the sun started to filter into their room, the two kitties lay there, remembering the wonderful times they had with Neekah Boo and her sister Fatty. Whiskers smoothed the soft fur on Talley’s head and mewed, “Sometimes I think if I were to cross the Rainbow Bridge first, maybe it would be better; maybe I could escape the pain of losing those I love. But that’s not the way it works, is it? Every day we have is fortunate and we have to live for the moment. Hopefully, we can be together as long as possible. Life will always seem too short for me. I love you so much Talley.” Whiskers gave Talley a deep kiss, softly licking the tears from her eyes.

Talley kissed her husband and mewed, “I think we should all go to the Castle Chapel today and light a candle for Angel Fatty and her family. I know what sweet Neekah Boo is going through and she’s going to need us right now.” Whiskers nodded and said, “Let’s go shower and get ready to go downstairs. I think we need to be with our family.” Whiskers helped his Talley slip on her silk robe, as they walked arm in arm to get ready for another day.

Whitey and Orangie were assisting Pearl this morning with breakfast. The kitties were all sitting at the table, having a cup of coffee and the kids were sipping on their hot chocolate. The mood was quiet as everyone sat immersed in his or her own thoughts. Pearl was preparing Fluffy Egg White Omelettes, stuffed with crabmeat and sprinkled with cheddar cheese. Whitey pan-fried turkey bacon on the stove, while Orangie squeezed some tangelos for fresh juice. The girls cooked in silence, mourning the loss of their dear furiend.

Whiskers pulled out a chair for Talley at the table, then knelt down to embrace the kids. Flower buried his little face in Whisker’s arms. Whiskers and Talley held the kids for a moment, trying their best to console the grief the little ones were experiencing. Whiskers dabbed their tears with his handkerchief. Flower softly said, “We didn’t even know Miss Fatty was sick. We’re going to miss her so much Uncle Whiskers.” Whiskers nodded and said, “I know little buddy. We all are. But let’s remember Fatty is an Angel in Heaven now and she’s with her fursister Angel Seska. Angel Fatty had a long, wonderful life filled with a lot of love. So many cats aren’t as fortunate. We have to remember the happy times we had with Fatty. Nothing can ever take away a love the heart holds dear. We’ll miss sweet Angel Fatty every day, but she’ll live on furever in our hearts.”

Talley wiped the tears from the little faces of Liliana, Tabitha and Daisy. Talley said, “Don’t forget my sisters Angels’ Maggie, Lucy-Fur and Sylvie will be there to welcome Fatty to Heaven. Angel Fatty will never be alone.” The kids nodded and smiled, thinking about what a wonderful place Heaven must be.

The family joined paws around the table to say grace and a special prayer for their dear furiend Angel Fatty and her family.

“Lord, you have embraced a good furiend and loving companion.
While we mourn what we have lost, we do celebrate what we had...
and in saying goodbye, we renew our pledge to love and care
for any creature you entrust to us for its time of life.
Thank you, Lord, for the joy Angel Fatty gave us and for making it
possible for us to have made this furiend's life a good one. Amen.”

Whitey and Pearl served the morning meal, telling the family they had to eat to keep their strength up. Whitey softly said as she sat down, “I want to thank all of you for the wonderful day yesterday visiting Blue and his family. I had a wonderful time. I feel bad such a glorious day was followed by such heartbreaking news.” Whitey’s eyes filled with tears. Raven held Whitey’s paw and said, “Don’t feel bad dear sister. We need the happy times in our lives, to help us get through the sad times like today. I don’t know what I would do without the precious memories I have of my sweet Angel Charlie.” Whitey nodded, kissing her sister on the cheek.

K. Pete said, “I’m sure we all want to go to the Castle Chapel to pray today. The kids still need to go to school though. We must go on with our lives. Angel Fatty would want it that way. I’ll go by the school later to pick up the kids and bring them to the Chapel.” Pearl nodded sadly, thanking her dear furiend. Flower held up his paw to speak. “My sisters and I are going to make a collage from all the pictures and drawings we have of Fatty and Neekah Boo. Mom said it would be okay to work on it in our art class.” Whiskers said, “That’s a fine idea kids. I think Neekah Boo and her Mom will appreciate the kind gesture.

Breakfast was over and everyone helped clear the table. Pearl and Callie helped the kids gather their school bags, not forgetting to pack their lunches. Whiskers said, “Talley and I want to walk the kids to school today. Wait for us and we can all go to the Chapel together.”

On the walk to school, the kids talked about the great times they had had with Neekah Boo and Fatty at the house. The wonderful memories were endless. The school bell was just ringing as they arrived. Whiskers and Talley gave the kids hugs and kisses, wishing them all a good day.

Whiskers and Talley walked slowly back home, holding paws. The two kitties in love reminisced together about all the wonderful Angels they held in their hearts. Whiskers said, “I believe crossing the Rainbow Bridge will be like a glorious family reunion. I just know as long as I have you by side sweetheart, there really is no death. Only a change of worlds.”

Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs, my precious Talley

My Love ♥
~~~~~
My love is like an ocean
It goes down so deep
My love is like a rose
Whose beauty you want to keep.

My love is like a river
That will never end
My love is like a dove
With a beautiful message to send.

My love is like a song
That goes on and on furever
My love is like a prisoner
It's to you that I surrender.

Whitey awoke hours before the sun came up.
She felt anxious and excited to be seeing Blue, and she also felt refreshed after a night of wonderful dreams. It seemed like ages since she had been with her dear furiend. Deciding it was futile to try to get any more sleep, Whitey quietly got out of bed, tiptoeing downstairs to fix breakfast for her family. Moving silently like a cat in the night, Whitey prepared cinnamon rolls and was just starting to make hot chocolate and coffee when Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy-Fur came into the kitchen surprising her. Whitey said, “I hope I didn’t wake you up. I was too excited to sleep anymore, but you’re just in time for coffee and fresh cinnamon rolls.” Angel Sylvie smiled and said, “I think the whole family was too excited to sleep. We just passed Whiskers and Talley in the hall. Angel Lucy and I have just enough time for coffee and a quick bite. We want to get to the airfield and ready the Lear Jet for our trip.” Whitey gave her sisters big hugs, quickly pouring them coffee, while they helped themselves to the cinnamon rolls.

Callie and Angel Maggie walked through the door, still in their pajamas. Callie said, “I knew I smelled something cooking. I hope you haven’t started the main dish yet Whitey.” Whitey shook her head as Angel Maggie opened the fridge and took out a casserole dish. Angel Maggie said, “Callie and I prepared a bacon, egg and cheese casserole last night. We just need to pop this into the oven and we’re all set.” Whitey was delighted. Callie said to her sister, “Why don’t you get dressed for our big day and let us serve breakfast.” Whitey hugged her sisters and ran upstairs. Angel Maggie smiled and said, “I know two kitties who are going to be happy to see each other today!”

Freshly baked cinnamon rolls were already on the table, with steaming pots of coffee when Talley and Whiskers came to the table. K. Pete, Raven, Ms. Murphy and Mitch were going over the flight plan to the Glendale Municipal Airport. K. Pete would be piloting, with Mitch as his acting co-pilot. Raven was happy to report there was zero percent chance of rain, with temperatures in the low one hundreds. Everyone had anticipated hot weather and had dressed accordingly. Whitey came to the table, looking fetching in a sky blue sundress that made her white fur shine. She felt beautiful and her family let her know. Whitey’s cheeks turn several shades of pink as she blushed. Whiskers whistled saying, “I think Blue will approve!” After saying grace and a prayer for a safe flight, the family enjoyed breakfast together, anticipating a fun-filled day with Blue and his family.

Whiskers helped K. Pete and Mitch load the SUV. Angel Maggie and Callie had packed some deli trays for the flight. Pearl reminded Flower, Liliana, Tabitha and Daisy to bring their sunscreen and hats. Flower proudly smiled and told his Mom, “I have everything on our checklist packed and ready to go!” Pearl hugged her diligent little boy and mewed, “Thank you son. Now help your Uncles pack up the SUV.” Flower hugged his Mom and scurried off. Whitey was the last cat out the door, carrying a box of cinnamon rolls for Blue and his family. The family was off to the airfield, only a few minutes behind Angel Sylvie & Angel Lucy.

The Angels had rolled the Lear 85 from the hanger onto the tarmac. K. Pete and Mitch began the preflight checks while Whiskers and Flower helped the girls onto the jet with their carry on bags. Whitey helped Callie and Angel Maggie stock the galley and couldn’t help smiling from ear to ear. In only three and half hours she would be with Blue.

K. Pete was just finishing up his preflight checks. The kitties were all onboard as Whiskers took a head count, making sure everyone was safely seated and made one last final cabin check. K. Pete started the engine and keyed his mic requesting clearance to taxi to the active runway. In a few moments they were at the active runway and were cleared to take off. K. Pete pushed the throttles forward and sent the big Lear climbing into the sky.

As the jet approached the airport, the family looked out their windows to get a bird’s eye view of the massive red-rock formations that characterized Sedona. They were mesmerized by the stunning view of deep canyons, shear cliffs and beautiful pine trees below. K. Pete brought the Lear down smoothly, bringing the jet to a safe stop. He taxied to the hanger space that was reserved in advance.

Right on schedule, the rental van was ready and waiting for them as they disembarked the plane. Assisted by the ground crews men, the family piled into the van. With K. Pete in the driver’s seat, Raven input Blue’s home address into the GPS and they were on their way.

Spotting Blue’s house was easy. As K. Pete turned the van onto his street, they saw Blue, Peaches and Miss Mello waving at them from their front yard. Whitey mewed when she saw her dear furiend, waiting until K. Pete parked the van, then bounding out the door into Blue’s waiting arms. Flower had his camera out, snapping pictures of the wonderful moment. Blue welcomed his furiends, introducing everyone to Miss Mello. Whiskers in turn introduced the newest members of their extended family, Mitch, Pearl and the kids. Flower, Tabitha, Liliana and Daisy gave Blue and his family big hugs. Flower said, “We feel like we know all of you already. Aunt Whitey always talks about you kitties.” Whitey blushed as Blue took her paw and walked everyone into his home.

Blue introduced his pawrents to everyone. Whitey gave his Mom a hug and handed her the box of cinnamon rolls. Blue’s mom said, “Thank you dear. Why don’t we all sit down and have one with a cup of coffee before you kids get going.” Blue nodded, showing everyone to the patio, giving them all a brief tour of the house along the way. Blue went over the itinerary for their shopping expedition. He told his furiends there was a wide array of places to shop; from upscale malls to Native American arts and crafts villages. The girls said they’d like to visit some of the New Age shops that specialized in items such as crystals, candles and aromatherapy treasures. Blue laughed and said, “We’ll start at a wholesale Indian jewelry place I know you’ll like. Right across the road, we’ll stop at the Wheeler’s Trading Post that has great souvenirs and gift items. I think you’ll all enjoy roaming the streets and prowling the plazas, because every time we step out of a store, the soaring red rocks are there to greet us, like old friends eager to share in our newly purchased treasures!”

Whitey joined in with the kids, clapping their paws in anticipation of shopping in a town connected to such dazzling scenery. After enjoying coffee and Whitey’s cinnamon rolls, it was time to head into town. Whitey and her family thanked Blue’s pawrents for their hospitality. The families loaded into the van easily. Raven had secured rental of the largest van available, almost the size of a small bus. Blue and Whitey sat up front with K. Pete driving. Blue directed K. Pete to the banks of Oak Creek where they would first visit the Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village, a collection of Spanish-style buildings reminiscent of a Mexican hamlet.

Tucked inside the village was a myriad of galleries and shops, beautifully decorated with cobblestone walkways, splashing fountains and giant, graceful Arizona sycamores that seemed to grow from the buildings themselves. Once parked and everyone was out of the van, Blue took Whitey’s paw in his as he led the way. Peaches and Miss Mello were having a wonderful time with all the girls. Whiskers, K. Pete and Mitch, with Flower riding on Mitch’s shoulders, followed behind everyone. K. Pete meowed to Blue, “Lead the way buddy!”

Everyone was amazed at the vast assortment of retail businesses tucked into every nook and cranny of the village. It was hard to proceed more than a few steps before some eye-catching jewelry or sculpture, or just-right T-shirt pulled the kitties off the sidewalk. Whiskers checked to make sure he brought his Feline Express Card. K. Pete winked at Whiskers and said, “How about you buy lunch and dinner and I’ll spring for the souvenirs?” Whiskers slapped K. Pete on the shoulder saying, “Thanks brother. I think between you and I, we’ll have it covered.”

Loaded down with shopping bags from every unique shopping area that Blue directed them to, Whiskers suggested, “How about we stop to eat. My stomach is starting to make noise.” Blue laughed and said, “I know a nice restaurant off of route 89 with a nice view and they serve some great Southwestern grub.” Everyone had worked up an appetite by now and Whiskers was eager to get out of the hot sun.

The restaurant had wonderful Red Rock views and a friendly staff. The girls enjoyed Southwest Caesar Salads, while the toms dined on hearty Mushroom Burgers. The kids couldn’t get enough of the delicious Buffalo Style Chicken wings. As they enjoyed their meal together, Blue handed a small package to Whitey. He said, “Open it up sweetie. I bought it when you weren’t looking.” Whitey was beaming. She opened the package and found a beautiful crystal mounted on a black leather neck band. Blue helped her put it on. He said, “It looks lovely on you. It’s supposed to focus protective energy on the wearer.” Whitey loved it and gave her dear furiend a big hug. Whiskers had bought Talley a bracelet made from crystals and gemstones. K. Pete had found a Feng Shui crystal energy hanging with mystical healing properties. He knew he had to buy it for his furiend Neekah Boo. Flower and the kittens had bought authentic turquoise pocketknives for Bobby, Inky and Storm. All the girls had bought crystal energy pendants, not forgetting their furiend Chloe.

Whiskers paid the bill and the families decided to take a leisurely drive. Peaches and Miss Mello pointed out the sights, while Blue told them all a little bit about his hometown of Glendale as they drove. He pointed to the state-of-the-art University of Phoenix stadium and said, “See there - Glendale is proud to be the host city for the 2015 Super Bowl. Glendale intends to make it one of the best bowl experiences for fans and for the entire region.” The family was awed with their furiends’ impressive hometown.

Whiskers said, “We’re going to have to come back to visit for more than a day sometime soon. I know the kids especially would like to do some hiking in this spectacular region. And of course, I know my sister would love to come back.”

The kitties knew their wonderful day of shopping had come to an end. K. Pete suggested they stop somewhere to get dinner. He said, “That way we can order something for your pawrents too.” Blue directed K. Pete to a great place where they could pick up a couple of artisan pizzas piled high with mushrooms, caramelized onions and hand-pulled mozzarella. The family gave the suggestion two paws up all around!

Blue’s pawrents were happy to hear about the wonderful shopping expedition everyone had. After enjoying one last meal together, it was time for Whiskers and the family to head back home. There were hugs all around with promises for a return visit. Blue took Whitey aside, kissing her softly on her cheek. Whitey gave Blue a big hug, thanking him for the most wonderful day of her life. Whitey touched the beautiful crystal necklace Blue had given her with her paw and said, “I don’t think I’ll ever take this off. Thank you for the lovely gift.”

As Whitey and her family drove away, she waved goodbye to Blue until he was gone from her sight. She said a silent prayer for Blue and his family to be well. Back at the airport, K. Pete, Mitch and Whiskers got the family situated on the plane, carefully stowing their bags. After a thorough preflighting, soon they were at the active runway and cleared for take off. K. Pete pushed the throttles forward and sent the big Lear climbing into the clear night sky! Whitey sat looking out her window, hoping to return soon to visit Blue and his family.

Whiskers and Talley were snuggling in bed
a little bit longer than usual. Talley kept smoothing the fur on Whiskers chest. She said, “Your fur feels so soft sweetheart. I guess you were overdue for a fur trim.” Whiskers smiled, luxuriating in the feel of Talley’s gentle touch on his fur. Whiskers said, “You know, I almost feel a bit lighter too. When the barber finished trimming my fur, I was amazed at all the fur on floor. I almost felt like I should help sweep the floor, but the barber was very polite and insisted that was part of his job. K. Pete took care of the bill and of course the barber was thrilled with the generous tip K. Pete left for him.” Talley smiled and mewed, “That’s my brother. Always the perfect gentleman and considerate of others.”

Whiskers nodded and said, “Well, it looks like we’re all prepared for our trip to Arizona on Sunday. Whitey is so excited. She heard from Blue and he’s looking forward to seeing her and all of us too. I’m sorry to say I didn’t know this, but Blue told Whitey there had been two wildfires near Sedona in the month of June. He said the fires and ensuing mudslides took quite a toll on the Oak Creek Canyon and Slide Rock Park. But they are recovering and most of the trails are open again. Blue said it shouldn’t have any effect on our shopping expedition. He said the community is encouraging visitors to come and help the businesses get back on their feet.” Talley nodded sadly and said, “I’m glad we can help. I remember how breathtaking the canyon and forest were when we visited. It’s truly a spiritual haven.”

While the two kitties in love dressed for their day, Whiskers said, “Talley my love, my Mom is going to be away tomorrow so I’m afraid my voice will be silent for a day. Of course you know I’m always with you - you can’t get rid of me that easily! My Mom sent our Aunt Donna in San Diego, a plane ticket to come up to San Jose for the day. Aunt Donna had to help her dog Blaze, over the Rainbow Bridge last week, and she is very sad right now. Angel Blaze had been a part of the family for 16 years and Aunt Donna’s heart is breaking without him around. Mom’s brother, our Uncle Larry, told my Mom it was a good idea for Aunt Donna to get away, if only for a day. Mom is going to take her for a day at a health spa. Mom has arranged massages, facials, the whole works for both of them. The spa even serves a nice lunch afterwards.

My Mom has just enough time to bring Aunt Donna to our house so she can visit us (if we’re not hiding!). Aunt Donna has never met Whitey or Orangie and my Mom is hoping Ebony and Sugar Bear will make an appearance. Then Aunt Donna’s plane will take her back home in time for dinner with Uncle Larry.”

Talley smiled and said, “That sounds wonderful sweetheart. It should be nice for your Mom too. Give your Aunt Donna a big hug for us. Tell her we’ll have Angels’ Maggie, Sylvie and Lucy look in on Angel Blaze.” Whiskers gave his beautiful wife a deep kiss and said, “Thank you Talley. I know my Aunt Donna would like that.”

Whiskers put his arm around Talley as they walked downstairs inhaling the delicious aromas that filled the house.

This morning Whitey and Pearl were preparing Mickey Mouse shaped pancakes topped with warm maple syrup to surprise the kids. Whitey had some bacon on a ridged plate cooking in the oven, so the bacon strips would lose most of the grease but still be crunchy and tasty, just the way her family liked it. Pearl had squeezed some oranges for fresh juice and this morning she would be serving almond milk, a superb source of B vitamins. Orangie had finished brewing some delicious Venetian coffee for the grown-ups and hot chocolate topped with a mound of whipped cream, for the kids. Flower’s nose could sense breakfast was almost ready to be served. He tiptoed into the kitchen, coyly asking if he could help. Whitey winked at her little nephew and said, “Your timing is perfect Flower. It’s time to ring the dinner bell.” With a huge grin on his face, Flower replied, “Yes ma’am!” The adorable skunk ran to grab the triangular dinner bell announcing, “Breakfast is served!”

Whiskers pulled out a chair for his lovely wife, stopping to hug and kiss his nieces and nephew good morning. The family joined paws to say grace and an extra prayer for their furiends and their families in need.

Everyone was talking excitedly about the upcoming trip to Arizona. Whitey told K. Pete that Blue had received the message from him, letting Blue know the flight to his hometown was well in hand. Whitey said, “I just can’t thank all of you enough.” The family was looking forward to seeing their dear furiends and this would be the first time to Arizona for Mitch, Pearl and the kids. It would be a mini-vacation. Flower said he had his bag packed with his camera, sketchbook and everything he could think of that he might need. Whiskers laughed and said, “We’re only going for the day buddy.” Flower nodded and said, “My sisters and I read up on Sedona while we were at school. It sounds like a magical place. We’re going to do a book report on the red rock formations when we get back home.”

The kids enjoyed eating the Mickey Mouse shaped pancakes, giving Whitey and their Mom a big hug of gratitude. Pearl made sure her kids had their school bags packed, knowing they were bound to forget something in all the excitement this morning. Angel Maggie and Callie brought the kids their lunch boxes, giving them a kiss goodbye. Whiskers and Talley walked the kids to school, so they could take a leisurely walk back home together.

Whiskers and Talley held paws, walking in a thoughtful silence. Whiskers stopped to pull Talley into his arms and said, “You make me the happiest tom in the world sweet Talley. As long as I have you by my side, I’m already in heaven. I’ll love you furever.” The two kitties kissed and slowly continued the walk back to their home, arm in arm.

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

A Dream For You
~~~~~
If I could dream
The dream I wanted too,
I would close my eyes,
And dream a dream for you.

I would give you all the world,
That you are deserving of,
And to you I would give
My everlasting love.

I would see to it,
That you were never sad.
And nothing in your life
Would ever happen bad.

I would wish for you,
All things would go your way,
And you would always be happy,
Each and every day.

In my dream
You would stay
Just as beautiful
As you are today.

Life for you would be as perfect
As the blueness of the sky,
And no one would ever hurt you,
Or ever make you cry.

I know it's just a dream,
But if dreams could come true,
I would close my eyes,
And dream a dream for you.

Talley and Whiskers had just stepped out
the shower. Whiskers helped towel dry his beautiful wife’s silky fur and she in turn helped him. Talley giggled and said, “My goodness sweetie, I think I might need to give your fur a slight trim before we make the trip to Arizona. I personally love the way you look, but it’s going to be very warm in Sedona. I don’t want you to overheat.” Whiskers nodded, taking Talley in his arms and giving her a soft kiss. He said, “You’re right my love. I’m overdue for a haircut. But I don’t want you to bother. Didn’t you tell me you and the girls were taking Whitey into the village this afternoon for some dress shopping? I’ll ask K. Pete and Mitch if they’d like to come along. I’ve wanted to try the feline barber in town. Some of the shelters toms have given the barber great reviews.” Talley said, “That sounds wonderful. Maybe after we finish shopping, the girls and I will stop at the beauty salon for pedicures. I know Whitey wants to look her best for Blue.”

Whiskers pulled on his shorts while looking in the mirror and said, “I didn’t forget you and I are going to work out this morning. After eating second helpings of the delicious Chicken Paprikash Angel Maggie and Callie made for dinner last night, I can tell my shorts are feeling a bit snug.” Talley smiled, patting Whisker’s belly playfully and mewed, “I knew you wouldn’t forget sweetheart. We’ll do a few laps in the pool before we leave. When we get back from our errands, we’ll continue our workout in the gym. We can read to each other while we use the equipment. I feel like working up a sweat on the elliptical exercise machine.” Whiskers smiled, giving his lovely wife a deep kiss. “What would I ever do without you my love? I know I’d be very sad and probably grow old and fat quickly!” Whiskers meowed. Talley laughed at her husband as they walked downstairs. She said, “Oh Whiskers, I know you have too much pride in yourself to let that happen. But I appreciate the sentiment sweetheart. Tee-hee !”

Flower, Tabitha, Liliana and Daisy were setting the table and pouring coffee and cocoa for the family. Whiskers pulled out a chair for his lovely Talley, then stretching out his arms for a hug from his nieces and nephew. The kids covered their Uncle Whiskers and Aunt Talley with hugs and kisses. Flower told everyone excitedly, “I’ve been watching our zucchini seeds growing, from the awesome cameras Aunt Raven and Aunt Ms. Murphy set up. My sisters and I are going to make a movie of our plant growing, after it’s all grown up. We’ll be able to share the movie at school with our classmates.” Whiskers smiled and said, “That’ll be quite an educational film. Being home grown with lots of care and love, I’ll bet the zucchini will taste delicious.” Flower and the kittens looked stunned for a moment. The kids hadn’t thought about EATING their zucchini! Then the kids started to laugh. Flower said, “I guess we thought we’d framed our first zucchini, but I don’t think that’d be too smart.” Tabitha said, “After we finish our homework tonight, Liliana, Daisy and I will look through our recipes and find the perfect recipe for our first zucchini!” The kids high pawed each other in agreement.

Callie came out of the kitchen to take everyone’s orders. Callie said, “I’ll be preparing your eggs. We’re eating light this morning, since most of us are watching their waistlines - with the exception of the kids of course. Angel Maggie is preparing some turkey bacon.” Angel Maggie set a basket of toasted English Muffins on the table. Whiskers smiled, sniffing the air and said, “I love turkey bacon. Eating light is not so bad around this house!” The family told Callie how they wanted their eggs and Whiskers asked, “Is there any Hungarian Paprikash leftover from last night? That might be great for lunch.” Callie playfully slapped her brother and said, “There are never leftovers with you at the table.” Whisker’s cheeks turned pink as he smiled sheepishly.

K. Pete smiled and asked Whiskers, “How’s your Mom doing with getting Sugar Bear to take her medicine.” Whiskers said, “My Mom wasn’t successful last night, but this morning she managed to catch Sugar Bear off guard and grabbed her up. Sugar Bear is always hungriest in the morning and quite playful. Mom feels bad giving her the yucky medicine, but Sugar Bear seems to like the follow-up treat. It’s just a few more days.”

The girls were all excited about going into town for shopping. Whitey was anxiously anticipating their visit to see Blue and his family. Whitey said, “I really appreciate having such wonderful sisters. Thank you for taking me shopping.” Talley smiled and said, “I think it’s going to be really hot in Arizona, so we better make sure we all dress appropriately.” Raven said, “I’ll be sure to buy us all more sunscreen with the strongest SPF I can find.” Whiskers asked K. Pete and Mitch if they wanted to go with him to the barber. The guys accepted and decided they would take separate vehicles. Whiskers said, “Good idea. I’m sure the girls are going to be a while.”

Breakfast was over and everyone was ready to start another busy day. Pearl and Talley helped the kids with their school packs and lunches. Pearl assured her kids she would get them something to wear for the trip to Arizona. The kids skipped happily along on their way to school. Talley and Whiskers decided to first take a few laps in the pool, meeting everyone downstairs in an hour.

With their bathing suits on, Whiskers picked up Talley in his arms, running as fast as he could, jumping into the pool. Talley was screaming with delight. Still holding on to his beautiful wife tightly, they bobbed up to the surface, immersed in a deep kiss.

Sending you soft kisses and hugs my precious Talley.

When I'm With You
~~~~~
When I'm with you,
eternity is a step away,
my love continues to grow,
with each passing day.

This treasure of love,
I cherish within my soul,
how much I love you...
you'll never really know.

You bring a joy to my heart,
I've never felt before,
with each touch of your paw,
I love you more and more.

Whenever we say goodbye,
whenever we part,
know I hold you dearly,
deep inside my heart.

So these seven words,
I pray you hold true,
"Furever And Always,
I Will Love You." ♥

Whiskers and Talley were both wide-awake
early this morning, having a wonderful time lying together reminiscing about their day yesterday. Talley said, “I’m looking forward to our trip tomorrow to visit Blue and his family. It’s nice to see Whitey so happy. I can tell she really cares a lot for our furiend Blue. My brother said we can take the Lear Jet to Arizona and make a family excursion of it.” Whiskers smiled and said, “I need to ask K. Pete which airport we’ll be landing at in Arizona. Blue told Whitey we might want to use the Glendale Municipal Airport. I saw on the news last night that Arizona is having Monsoon Storms right now. We could be flying into some challenging weather.” Talley nodded and said, “We won’t be leaving until Sunday. Anything could happen by then as far as the weather is concerned. I’m sure you and my brother will be monitoring the forecast.” Whiskers got up to pull his slippers on. He said, “Do you remember when we took the trip to see the Red Rocks of Sedona? It was in early February of this year. Blue, Peaches and Nudy met us at the airport. It seems like such a long time ago.” Whiskers and Talley remembered with a touch of sadness, that Nudy hadn’t crossed the Rainbow Bridge back then. Whiskers kissed his beautiful wife who had tears in her eyes. Whiskers said, “We’ll always remember Angel Nudy, especially when we visit Sedona, but this time we’ll get to meet a new furiend. Blue will be bringing their new fursib, Miss Mello. She sounds very nice. We’ll have a wonderful time my love.” Whiskers put his arm around Talley and the two kitties in love walked to the shower together, singing in unison.

Whitey had insisted on making breakfast for her family, to thank them all for agreeing to take the trip to Sedona. She knew she was blessed to have such a wonderful family. Whitey had just finished preparing buckwheat cakes and was putting them in the warming oven when Orangie came into the kitchen. Orangie said, “Let me help you sister. You know - we’re all excited to be taking a family trip to Sedona.” Whitey gave her sister a hug and said, “Thank you sis. I’m just so excited. Can you finish cooking the ham for me? I have it pan-frying on the stove. I still need to warm the maple syrup and get some whipped cream ready.” Orangie went right to work. Talley peeked her head in asking if she could help. Whitey’s smile was one of relief, so Talley immediately put on an apron and busied herself with slicing some apples and pears into small bowls and brewing the coffee and cocoa to serve while the family waited. Whitey hugged her two sisters and said, “You girls are wonderful. My whole family is wonderful! I count my blessings every day.”

Mitch and K. Pete were discussing the work they would be continuing today for the community greenhouses. Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie had done a superb job laying the foundations, saving an immeasurable amount of time and work.

Whiskers pulled out a chair for Talley, just as Whitey and Orangie began to serve breakfast. After saying good morning, K. Pete asked Whiskers, “We’re all dying to know how your Mom did with Sugar Bear last evening. Was she able to give Sugar Bear her medicine?” Whiskers took a sip of his coffee and laughed. He said, “Sugar Bear was on to my Mom last night. The talk Angels’ Sylvie and Lucy had with the little kitty helped a lot, but I think she must have really hated the taste of the medicine from the night before. My Mom talked to Sugar Bear and Ebony for over an hour last night. Sugar Bear got closer to Mom, but she kept jumping back - very unsure of Mom. So Mom went to bed having failed. :(
But - very early this morning my Mom fed the two kitties and was able to catch Sugar Bear off guard. After thinking on it hard last night, my Mom realized she should have given Sugar Bear a delicious chaser, after her dose of medicine. Mom always does that with us - she just completely forgot! The Clavamox has a very bitter taste, so Mom followed it with a syringe full of liquid catfood. (Mom blends wet catfood with water in a blender.) It worked great. Sugar Bear still hated the medicine, but liked the liquid catfood. We’ll see what happens tonight when Mom tries again.”

Whiskers and Talley asked K. Pete if he wanted to stop by to visit Neekah Boo’s class before they started their day. K. Pete thought that was a grand idea. Flower and his sisters were talking excitedly about their wonderful teacher, Angel King Malachi. Whiskers smiled and told the kids, “Angel K. Malachi is very knowledgeable and an exceptional speaker. I think you’re all in for quite a treat with him as your teacher.” Flower nodded excitedly and asked, “How did your day go as a substitute teacher Uncle Whiskers? We wish we could have been in your class.” Whiskers laughed and said, “It went pretty well. Having your Aunt Talley in the class helped me tremendously. I’m not the best speaker- I tend to get nervous- but all in all, it went okay. I’m glad Miss Neekah Boo is back teaching!”

Breakfast was delicious and filling. The family thanked the girls for a wonderful start to the day. Pearl helped the kids gather their school backpack together, while Callie and Angel Maggie made sure to pack their lunches.

Raven and Ms. Murphy were continuing their research on ‘cisterns’ for the greenhouses. Catching rainwater for the plants sounded like a stellar idea.

Whiskers and Talley decided to walk the kids to school today, to get some fresh air and a little exercise. The kids talked non-stop on the walk to school. When they arrived, Flower and the kittens kissed their Aunt and Uncle good-bye and skipped happily down the walkway to their classroom.

Whiskers and Talley were smiling as they walked back home, arm in arm. Whiskers couldn’t help thinking how perfect this moment was. It was a beautiful day and he had his beautiful Talley next to him. They walked together in silent bliss.

Sending you soft kisses and hugs, my darling Talley.

Whiskers kissed his beautiful wife good morning
and said, “I have to thank Angels Lucy, Sylvie and Maggie for speaking with our new fursib Sugar Bear last night, about taking her medicine. Sugar Bear did really well and she didn’t seem mad at my Mom at all this morning. Her and Ebony were ready and waiting to eat breakfast this morning. Business as usual! Mom is hoping it goes well again tonight too.” Talley smiled and said, “Yes, my dear Angel sisters have a way with kitties; with all pets for that matter! They can charm the hearts of just about anyone.”

Whiskers smoothed Talley’s soft fur with his paw and said, “My Mom finally received delivery of the outdoor cathouse she ordered. The bulk of the house is already assembled, Mom just needs to attach a few items and put the finishing touches on making it cozy inside the house. Right now my Mom has all the pieces laid out in the garage with her tools. She’ll read the directions first and then hopefully get started later today. We’ll see how my day as substitute teacher for Neekah Boo goes. I might need my Mom to wait until tomorrow to put the cathouse together. I know she doesn’t like to be distracted and end up doing a lousy job.

Angel Maggie and Callie had whipped up some Strawberry and crème cheese stuffed crepes for breakfast. Callie was just taking some freshly baked English muffins from the oven, filling small dishes with whipped butter and a few with blueberry preserves.

Whiskers and Talley set the table, serving coffee and juice to the family who had just gathered at the table after smelling the yummy aromas coming from the kitchen. Raven and Ms. Murphy had their laptops out checking the greenhouse cams. Flower and the kittens were practically on top of their two Aunts as they tried to peer at the screen. Flower squealed, “Look at our Zucchini! They’re growing like the magic seeds in Jack-in-the-Beanstalk!” Whiskers peeked at the images on the computer screen and said, “I think we can officially say Flower and his sisters have “Green Thumbs.” Flower looked at his paws dumbfounded. He said, “Uncle Whiskers, my thumb doesn’t look green.” Whiskers smiled at his little nephew and said, “A Green Thumb is just a saying that means you are good at growing things, anything you plant will grow good. It means, if you have one, you seem to have the ability to make plants flourish - you usually have a beautiful garden and a knack of making plants and cuttings and seeds grow. The opposite, is to have a black thumb - ie everything dies in your garden. My Dad used to tease my Mom and tell her she had a ‘black thumb.’ Flower scowled and said, “That’s not a very nice thing to say.” Whiskers said, “My Mom has gotten much better at growing plants. Her biggest problem was giving her plants too much water.” Flower and his sisters quickly made a note to avoid overwatering.

The family enjoyed another delicious breakfast together. Mitch was talking excitedly about the arrival of the new community greenhouses on Friday. Mitch told his family the entire cat community was thrilled and looking forward to having fresh vegetables during the winter. He told K. Pete they were all very grateful to his family. K. Pete beamed at his furiend and said, “Anything we can do for the community is our pleasure and honor.” Whiskers was enjoying his delicious meal when he said, “Not to change the subject, but I wanted to thank the girls for the amazing meal they prepared for us last night. I didn’t even know I liked cabbage. The Polish recipe was scrumptious. I’d like to meet the furiend named Jazz who was kind enough to swap recipes with you girls. What an incredibly sad story of her past life, but it sounds like she is flourishing now. I’m so glad Inky and the boys will be on the lookout for any homeless furiends when it starts to get cold. There must be something we can do to help too.”

K. Pete nodded and said, “I think it’s important we keep maintaining the empty shelters. We don’t want to be surprised when the weather starts to change.” Talley said, “My sisters and I have made sure there are announcements at the community center posted on all the bulletin boards. I think we’ll need to put a little more effort in getting the word out about the shelters, by talking to everyone we know. We have to remember our homeless furiends don’t have access to computers or T.V.
Whiskers nodded and said, “Sometimes I take for granted all the luxuries we have. Maybe Flower and the kittens can come up with some visual posters. The next time we go hiking in the woods, we can post them on the trees. It’s just an idea.”

Whitey chimed in before the family began their day, “I almost forgot! I received a message from our furiend Blue and his fursibs. Blue invited us all to visit him and his family this Saturday or Sunday. He’d like to take us shopping in Sedona again. Remember we went there in February of this year? Blue would like me to give him a head count of who wants to come so his Mom can pack lunches for us! Let me know when you can so I can get back to him. I’m so excited to see him - it’s been a while.” The family smiled when they saw how happy Whitey looked. Whiskers said, “We’ll let you know tonight sis. It sounds like fun!”

It was once again time for the kids to head off for school. Mitch, K. Pete, Angels Lucy and Sylvie would begin surveying the land where the community greenhouses would be built. Raven and Ms. Murphy were busy developing the plans for the construction on their laptops. Whiskers promised to meet them all later after his ‘classroom substitute teaching’ ended. Talley was going with her husband for moral support.

Another wonderful day was about to unfold. Whiskers and Talley drove off together, happy and very much in love.

It's You ♥

Hi Talley,
Attention Hairballz,
So happy to be back on the road again with you. I really missed CC and if it truly ever closes, I most likely will not be joining another site. While roaming the halls of SMC doing Hairballz Rides, I met some awesome cats and hired Maggie Meme from Summerville SC to join our team. Maggie's profile # is 271793. I hope all of u can stop by and give her a big Hairballz welcome. I also found Sooty, from the UK on SMC. He is having issues setting up a profile on SMC. Remember his fun Mom doing a lot of swearing and sweating during her week to ride on SMC. Hopefully, he will join us soon.
The bad news Ammie is not doing much blogging these days and has declined her place on the Hairballz, we will always keep Angel Yum Yu with us and will miss Ammie a lot.
Several Hairballz members can't start riding till Sept. Kali, Winston, Coco. So I have decided to make a schedule, should this be a bad week for you, u can trade weeks with another Hairballz, just keep me posted please. We will still begin our rides starting on Sunday and ending on Sat.
Much thanks to Angel Mallow for keeping the Hairballz up and running while I was running us on SMC. She is the bestest.
Love all of u,
Zoe M.

While Whiskers and Talley snuggled in a bed,
Whiskers heard his phone vibrating on his nightstand. Whiskers kissed Talley and said, “I better pick that up. It’s probably my Mom back from the vet.” Whiskers spoke on the phone with his Mom for a while, mostly listening and nodding his head. When he hung up, Talley mewed, “I hope your Mom had some good news about Sugar Bear.” Whiskers pulled his beautiful wife in his arms and said, “Well, the vet is treating Sugar Bear’s nose as an infection. The doctor doesn’t think it’s an allergy because Sugar Bear isn’t scratching a lot. So Sugar Bear got a penicillin shot and the rest of her booster shots. The vet also gave my Mom some Clavamox oral antibiotic drops to give Sugar Bear twice a day. The vet knows Sugar Bear is still an outside kitty right now, but she told my Mom to just try her best to give Sugar Bear the medicine. My Mom asked if it would be better to keep her inside for a few days, but after hearing the story about Sugar Bear and Ebony being furiends from a feral colony, the doctor decided it would be better for both kitties if they stayed together, just like it has been.”

Sure enough when Mom got back home from the vet, Ebony was sitting by the garage waiting for Sugar Bear. It made my Mom teary eyed. Mom thought Sugar Bear would run off when she opened the cat carrier. Mom put the carrier in the garage, filled a bowl with Fancy Feast and Ebony walked inside the garage to rub noses with Sugar Bear. When Mom opened the carrier door, Sugar Bear ran out, but turned around at the end of the driveway and came back to eat with Ebony. Those two kitties really love each other.”

“Sugar Bear weighed 6.4 lbs when Mom took her in 2 weeks ago. Today she weighed 7 lbs! The vet told my Mom Sugar Bear is so small and docile, she’ll have a much better chance at surviving at our house, than going back to her feral colony. Mom was happy to hear the vet say that, even though it’s already been decided.” Talley smiled and said, “That’s wonderful news Whiskers. I’m sure your Mom will figure out a way to give Sugar Bear her medicine. Tell her we’ll all have our paws crossed and say a prayer for them.”

Whiskers kissed Talley, thanking her for always supporting him and his family. The two kitties got out of bed, ready to start another wonderful day together.

Whitey and Orangie were in the kitchen helping Tabitha, Liliana and Daisy prepare a recipe called French Toast BLT. The kittens had found the recipe while surfing the internet and thought it sounded delicious. The kittens used some day old bread and cut it into thick slices so it wouldn’t fall apart when they gave it a long soak in the egg and heavy cream mixture. Whitey told the girls the long soak would create a custard that cooks into the bread so it puffs up in the oven after getting a crisp crust in the frying pan. After they had their base ready, the kittens cooked the bacon, sliced some ripe tomatoes from their garden and tossed some peppery arugula in a light vinaigrette. They skillfully sprinkled the French toast with grated Gruyere Cheese, putting it back in the oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese. Then they removed the French toast from the oven placing slices of bacon, tomato and arugula on top. Voila! Breakfast was ready to be served.

The smells from the kitchen were driving Flower and Whiskers crazy. Flower asked his Uncle Whiskers, “Do you think I should go check to see if it’s time to ring the breakfast bell?” Whiskers nodded and smiled saying, “Ask the girls if the need help first. We always want to be polite.” Flower nodded his head and ran off to help.

Whiskers and Talley enjoyed sipping coffee with the family. Whiskers gave K. Pete and the girls an update on Sugar Bear’s trip to the vet. The family agreed with the vet, that the Ebony and Sugar Bear should stay with Whisker’s Mom. Raven said, “The two cats sound like they are already used to your pawrents home. It would be a shame to send them back.” Angel Sylvie said her and Angel Lucy would stop by on their goodwill rounds to sprinkle some angel dust over Whisker’s home. Whiskers thanked his sweet Angels sisters, knowing how much their magic Angel dust always helped those in need.

Breakfast was delicious and the family gave the little chefs two paws up. Pearl helped her kids gather their things for school, as she didn’t want them to be late. Callie and Angel Maggie made sure they all had their lunch in their backpacks. Flower and his sisters didn’t have enough time to check the greenhouse this morning, much to their dismay, but Whiskers and Talley told them the greenhouse would be waiting for them as soon as they got home.

Whiskers and Talley helped Pearl get the kids off to school, watching them as they all skipped happily down the road. Pearl went back inside to help the girls clean up the kitchen. Whiskers and Talley stood outside admiring their lovely yard. Whiskers told Talley, “I think I’m going to be substituting for Neekah Boo at school tomorrow morning on Cathugger. I’ve never taught a class before. I’m a little nervous. Maybe you can help me come up with some ideas. Talley kissed her smart husband and mewed, “You’ll do fine sweetie. We can come up with some ideas while we’re gardening today.” Whiskers felt like he could do anything with Talley by his side.

Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs my darling Tallulah.

She's My Treasure
~~~~~
She's my treasure,
with whom I can share,
all the thoughts and feelings,
I wouldn't be able to bear.

My hope and my joy,
for going through this life.
Past every single problem,
and every single strife.

I love her most dear,
with all of my heart.
I will always remember,
we shall never be apart.

I'll remember her words,
those wise words she spoke.
I will always remember,
her every single joke.

Her courage and strength,
when the going got rough.
We stuck through it together,
nothing could ever be too tough.

Fear was destroyed,
by our will to achieve.
We will conquer our faults,
we will always believe.

We both believe in each other,
we will both stand together.
This is how it will be,
furever and ever!

Hi Talley, My Precious Love! ♥
Good morning to you my love. I wanted to let you know I'll be by a little later than usual today. Mom is getting ready to take Sugar Bear to the vet. Mom had to catch her this morning at 5:00 because Sugar Bear is always rubbing all over Mom's legs in the early morning. Mom felt bad crating the poor kitty so early, but her appointment is a 9.

Keep your paws crossed sweetie. Sending you soft kisses and hugs.

Whiskers and Talley were both up early,
having already showered and dressed in anticipation of surprising Talley’s Mom on her birthday. Whiskers sat on the edge of the bed, slipping his comfortable loafers on. He said, “It sounds like your Dad has a wonderful day planned for your Mom. I hope they have nice weather for boating today.” Talley smiled and said, “I’m sure my Dad will make everything perfect today for my Mom. Let’s hurry and get downstairs. Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy will be leaving soon to pick up my pawrents.” Whiskers took Talley in his arms and mewed, “I had a wonderful time with you and our family at the Castle Game festivities last night. I think King Spanky was able to raise quite a bit of money for the homeless pets. He is such a thoughtful and caring King.” Talley kissed Whiskers and said, “Just like all the Kings and Queens before him.”

When the two kitties in love got to the dining room table, there was hot coffee and hot cocoa waiting for them, with the rest of the family. Whitey and Orangie had prepared Chicken Apple Sausage and scrambled Eggs this morning, which they put into the warming oven for later. Talley’s Dad would be taking their Mom out for a day of fun, but first they would stop by the house for a surprise.

Inspired by the wonderful movie “Chocolat” they had enjoyed last night, Callie and Angel Maggie were preparing a special birthday cake for Angel Maggie’s Mom. The girls were putting the finishing touches on a Red Velvet Cake made with Bitter Sweet Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Sponge Cake & a silky, smooth and sweet, but not too sweet, cream cheese frosting. Angel Maggie was pleased with the final product. She said to Callie, “I think our cake will melt in everyone’s mouths.” The two sisters high-pawed each other before taking the cake to the table. Pearl said, “Wait! We can’t forget the candle so their Mom can make a birthday wish!”

Whiskers brought out his ukulele, tuning up for the birthday song. Flower sat next to his Uncle, warming up his lips to play his harmonica. Talley sat next to both of them tuning up her melodic voice. "Mee-mee-mee-mee-meow!"

Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy spread their magical carpet on the deck in the backyard and were gone in a blink of an eye. The kitties all sat excitedly at the table and waited.

Just then the kitties heard the Angels make their whisper landing on the deck and they could hear their Mom and Dad’s laughter. The Angels had blindfolded their Mom, so they carefully guided her into the living room. The kitties all meowed "SURPRISE!" Their Mom whisked off her blindfold and was smiling from ear to ear! Whiskers and Flower began to play with everyone singing!

♬ Today is a birthday, I wonder for whom?
It must be for somebody right in this room.
So look all around you for somebody who
Is smiling and happy, my goodness, it's you!

♪ Happy Birthday Mom, from all of us to you,
Happy Birthday Mom, from all of us to you.
We congratulate you, and hope all your sweet dreams come true,
Happy Birthday Mom, from your kitties and furiends too (boom boom.)

Flower and the kittens ran up to hug Mom Marylou, wishing her a Happy Birthday and presenting her with a beautiful collage of photos and drawings of the meteor shower they had all witnessed a few nights ago. Flower had crafted a lovely Rosewood frame to display their gift. Mom Marylou looked happy as she made a wish and blew out her birthday candle. The kitties applauded as Angel Maggie cut the cake & Callie passed out the plates and poured coffee, cocoa and fruit punch for everyone.

The kitties knew their Mom and Dad had to get back home to celebrate with the rest of their family. K. Pete and the girls proposed a toast to their Mom, “Let’s all raise our glasses for an amazing lady, my Mom! May she always feel the love of her entire family and all her friends. We love you Mom!” There were cheers and applause all around.

Just as quickly as Mom Marylou and Dad Mike had been brought here, the Angels prepared their pawrents for the magical ride back. They all hugged and said their good-byes. In a blink of an eye they were gone. Whiskers and Talley helped the girls clean up the cakes dishes and help set up the breakfast table. Flower and the kittens were still jubilant after all the excitement. Flower said, “It sure was fun having dessert before we eat breakfast!” Pearl laughed and said, “Don’t get used to that sweet boy. Today is a very special occasion, so we made an exception.” Flower pondered for a moment what his Mom has just said. Flower’s face lit up and he exclaimed, “I think on my birthday, I’ll wish for a breakfast birthday cake!” Whiskers picked up his little nephew and said, “You’re starting to sound like me buddy. We both have an insatiable sweet tooth.”

Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy were back in time for a hearty breakfast with the family. Flower asked his Uncle Whiskers and Aunt Talley if they would be working in the garden today? Whiskers nodded, looking at Talley and said, “I think spending a day in the yard sounds great. I’m anxious to see how the seedlings are doing in the greenhouse too.” Talley said, “After we get back from church, of course.” Pearl smiled and said, “Okay kids, let’s finish eating and then get changed for church. Afterwards we can all spend the whole day together.”

K. Pete, Mitch, Raven and Ms. Murphy would be looking at greenhouses for the community. Raven and Ms. Murphy had several selections picked out to show Mitch and K. Pete. Pearl wanted to help Callie and Angel Maggie prepare a vegetable soup for lunch, using all the fresh produce Whiskers and Talley had just picked from the garden yesterday. All the kitties were looking forward to staying close to home today.

Whiskers pulled Talley into his arms after changing into their overalls, giving her a deep kiss. Whiskers mewed, “I hope your Mom and Dad have a wonderful day. They look so happy and in love together, just like us.”

Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs my precious love.

“When I first saw you, I fell in love and you smiled because you knew.”

at least
janet got a chance to enjoy a day without almost any er-rands only a quickie to wal mart seeing she had to get something as well as nat picking up a few things too all tax free as it's tax free shopping just this weekend once a year. janet also pulled up 8-10 more tomato plants thanks to blight which is taking it's toll on her garden as well as it took the second picking of the peas which were really doing great as well as the bunnies. it's back to work for her today after being on vacation and kind of busy most of the week between errands, freezing things, cooking, walks, and one morning day trip which might turn out no more the rest of this year except to the mall down in holyoke before the holiday season gets underway and not on a weekend. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Whiskers kissed his beautiful Talley, picking her
up in the air easily and twirling her around. Whiskers said, “Oh Talley, any time spent away from you is too long, but I know we’re always together in our hearts. My pawrents are finally home and all is well. Please tell your sweet Mom ‘Happy, Happy Birthday’ for all of us. We hope her and your Dad have a wonderful day celebrating her special day tomorrow.”

Talley giggled and kissed Whiskers. She said, “I’m so glad you got back in time for King Spanky’s Castle Game Night. The kids are looking forward to playing Pin the Tail on the Doggy and Pictionary.” Whiskers smiled and said, “I know Flower and the kittens will be great at Pictionary. I’m just happy to be back with you and our family sweetheart.” Whiskers held Talley back at arms length and whistled. “You look sensational my love! I better change into something nice so we look like we belong together!” Talley smiled and said, “I laid out a nice outfit for you to wear in our dressing room. I thought Game Night at the Castle would be casual, so you’ll look nice in your black khaki shorts and one of the white cotton dress shirts we bought in Cabo.” Whiskers pulled Talley into his arms, giving her a long, deep kiss. He whispered into her delicate ear, “What would I ever do without you my love?”

The whole house was buzzing with activity. Flower, Tabitha, Liliana and Daisy couldn’t stop jumping up and down with excitement. Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy had their magic carpet ready to transport the family to Castle. That way, no one had to worry about the drive back home. Callie and Angel Maggie had made a pot of vegetable soup for a light dinner when they all got back home. Flower and the kittens had been saving their appetites all day for eating at the Castle. Whiskers hugged his nieces and nephew and said, “I do believe I heard from our King that Pizza is on the menu.” The kids were bouncing up and down when they heard the word Pizza! Flower tugged on his Uncle Whisker’s shirt and said, “I can’t wait to show you what’s growing in our green house when we get home Uncle Whiskers.” Whiskers winked and said, “I’ll bet it’s a miracle, just like this family.”

The family gathered together with the Angels, taking a quick head count and they were off to a spectacular night at the Castle.

Sending you soft kisses and hugs my precious love.

All I Have to Give
~~~~~
You're the first thing I think of
each morning when I rise.
You're the last thing I think of
each night when I close my eyes.

You're in each thought I have
and every breath I take.
My feelings are growing stronger
with every move I make.

I want to prove I love you
but that's the hardest part.
So, I'm giving you all I have to give
I give you my heart.

Hi Talley, My Precious Love! ♥
Good morning my love. I wanted to let you know I'll be by later today with my blog. My pawrents have an appointment this morning and then my Mom would like to try to take Sugar Bear to see the vet, if she can catch her. If not, my Mom knows she'll have better chance at catching the little kitty on Monday morning. Sugar Bear's nose looks the same. Not bad, but not normal either.

I love you sweetheart. You know we're always together in each other's hearts.

Sending you soft kisses and lots of hugs, my beautiful girl.

Whiskers held his beautiful Talley
tightly in his arms as they chatted about yesterday’s activities. Whiskers smiled and said, “I hope the seeds that the kids planted start sprouting soon. I have a feeling Flower and the kittens are going to be checking their plants ever chance they get. I can’t wait to see their little faces when the seeds begin to sprout. Planting a garden is really a wonderful educational tool for the kids. They’re going to grow up appreciating everything the world has to offer them.” Talley nodded and said, “I’m glad we were all able to figure out how to assemble the shelves in the greenhouse. Can you believe how poorly written those instructions were? It’s a good thing we’re all good at putting puzzles together.” Whiskers laughed and mewed, “I know my Dad hates trying to decipher poorly written instructions. He always ends up throwing them at Mom! My Mom gets exasperated too, but if there are pictures supplied, she tries to put it together using both the pictures and instructions.”

Talley was looking up at the ceiling as they lay in bed snuggling. She said, “I was so relieved to hear the wonderful news about our furiend Becky. I know her family and Commish Casey have been so worried about her. Our prayers were answered and I’m glad you and I made a trip to the Cavern of Shrines to give thanks. I always feel so close to the Lord when we’re there.” Whiskers kissed Talley and said, “I was glad we were able to say a special prayer for our furiend K. Spongie’s Mom Lynn too. Somehow, I always feel closer to God in the angel tunnels and just maybe, He will hear me better from there. I know it’s silly.” Talley shook her head saying, “It’s not silly at all sweetheart. I feel the same way. Why don’t we stop by the Castel Chapel later this evening and light some healing candles for our furiend and their families in need.”

Whiskers gave Talley one more kiss before the two kitties in love got up to shower and get ready for another wonderful day together.

Pearl, Whitey and Orangie were in the kitchen fixing some old-fashioned Oatmeal this morning. Pearl had a special recipe she had always made for her kids that included apples, raisins and honey toasted walnuts. Whitey smiled and said, “I’m not a big fan of oatmeal, but this recipe sounds delicious. What a brilliant way to get kids to enjoy oatmeal, since it’s such a healthy dish.” Pearl smiled as she stirred some chopped walnuts in a small hot skillet, toasting lightly, then drizzling honey over the walnuts,. Pearl removed the skillet from the heat to let it cool. Whitey and Orangie were taking notes as Pearl boiled water in a large heavy saucepan, adding the oats until softened and very thick. Orangie helped stir in the apple juice, chopped apples, brown sugar, raisins and cinnamon. As the oatmeal simmered over a low heat, the girls prepared small individual bowls with vanilla yogurt and the honey -toasted walnuts. Orangie said, “I’ll make some buttered toast using the leftover Italian bread we baked last night.
