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

Talley COTM SEPT 2015

About Me

Active within 1 Day

Hi! My name is Talley COTM SEPT 2015

I am Domestic Shorthair from Jacksonville, FL

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

Age: 7 years old

Gender: F

Coat: short haired

Education: I can fetch when dad throws my puff balls for me.

My favorite tricks and treats are: I can run really fast, and I can bat a ball really well. Treats? Fancy Feast with greens is good and like I said I really, really like Pete's special Tuna Flakes, but I'm open to new possibilities.

Where I hang out: I'm still exloring but so far I like the computer room, mom & dad's laps and anyplace my big brother pete goes. ( I'll be able to get on counters soon)

My favorite grubs: I like Pete's special treat flakes, and and any big cat food. Dad lets me have little meat treats from his plate, and I really like that.

My pet peeves: Loud noises, closed doors and when any other kitty plays with my treat ball

What I love about my owners: I've learned from the other cats, my big sisters and especially my big brother, Pete that we don't have owners, What we have is a caring and loving family. Mom & dad treat us with the same love and respect that they give their human children. I do like it a lot when dad kisses my tummy. I believe I'm a pretty lucky little kitty.

My cat hobbies: I like to play ball, play with Pete (my big brother), wrestle with my stuffed toy kittens and be loved and petted.

Pet motto: Little miracles happen everyday, you just have to open your heart and let them come.

How We Met

When I was about seven weeks old I got very sick, my eyes got infected and I couldn't see because pus had dried on the outside of them and I couldn't even open them. Then, some how I got lost from my kitty mom & my littermates. I just kind of wandered blind for I don't know how long. I was so very hungry and thirsty. Then, even though I couldn't see, something calming seemed to come over me, a quiet sweet kitty voice, guiding me to an empty house. I finally got there and managed to climb up on the brick steps. Something told me to stay, and I was too thirsty and hungry and tired to go on anyway. It was so hot. After awhile I heard someone say "Oh my goodness, look at this" another voice asked, "Is it alive?" "Yes", said the first voice, "but not for long if we don't get help." Someone (it turned out to be our dad) picked me up, we went in a truck to a cool place with more people, and then I got medicine, (ick!) & food and water with electrolytes. (yum!)and then a shot. My eyes were bathed in something cool and then I could see again. I think I would have been really scared, but I'm pretty sure a very sweet cat named Sylvie led me to that place and she somehow led dad to make an unsceduled visit to that house to take some measurements he'd misplaced. I truly beleive that a miracle happened, and my life changed in an instant. I love my home

Hi Q Talley
What’s mew with you? I have some fun & exciting mews to share with you. . . . I am once again featured in Catster magazine. Yes, that really is me in the Nov/Dec issue. This is my 2nd time in the magazine, the first time was in the July/August issue. This time I am on page 49 in the "Naughty Cats" section. I’m not naughty! I did not enter any contests, but apparently Catster (formerly Cat Fancy) keeps their photos on file for a very long time. The photo they selected is from 2011 when I was only five years old. This same photo was also chosen to be included in the hardcover book “Get Out Of There Cat” in 2014. It’s my profile picture today too.

As you can imagine, Mommy & I are happily surprised with this unexpected honor. You can see pics of me in Catster on the bottom of my page.

Purrs to you,
K Casper Todd, Super Star✮✰✭

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Oh sweetheart, I had the best time with you and our family at Queen Angel Tinker’s Coronation last night. You looked simply ravishing, as always, and I knew I was the luckiest tom in the world.

My Mom and I just finished thanking our many furiends who came to help me celebrate my COTD prestigious honor yesterday. Many of our furiends congratulated both of us! It’s so nice to be thought of as a couple. That’s us my love- together furever as one!

Mom just got off the phone with her brother Larry. He’s at the hospital with GM. Uncle Larry put GM on the phone to say hello to Mom. My Mom cried when GM thought my Mom was already in San Diego. Mom told GM she would see her tonight. Callie and I helped Mom pack her suitcase. A nice lady from “Almaden Cat Sitters” is coming over again today. Callie and I like her- she is very soft-spoken, and I even let her pet me last night. Dad was a little jealous, but Mom was very happy. Now she doesn’t have to worry as much leaving us alone with Dad.

I’ll keep you in my dreams sweetheart and you know you’re furever in my heart. I love you precious Queen Talley.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my furever love, my darling Queen Talley.

I’ll Close My Eyes and Think Of You...
When I am scared and all alone,
I close my eyes and think of you.
I see your smile and bright, green eyes;
You ease my fears and calm the tides.

When I’m down and very sad,
I close my eyes and think of you.
I hear your laugh and sweet, soft voice;
You cheer me up; I've got no choice.

You're in my thoughts both day and night--
My love for you will never die.
And even though I close my eyes,
My heart cries out for you each night.

My eyes shed tears, my heart just breaks,
Because they know all I can do
Is close my eyes and think of you,
Just close my eyes and think of you.

-I’ll miss you so much. ♥

Sweet Queen Talley
I'm so sorry I didn't make it to the coronation, sweet Talley. I know it was lovely. My Mom has been at her sister's, taking care of sis, who broke her foot and ankle! She just got home now. I have a little gift for you to thank you for such a wonderful month. It's a yellow and white quilt and I have embroidered Queen Talley in the center and embroidered all different colors of paw prints all around the borders. I hope you like it. Love you much!

When Whiskers opened his eyes this morning,
he had to stop and think for a second about where he was. “Ah yes, I’m back home with my beautiful wife,” he thought. He pulled his sleeping beauty closer into his body, kissing Talley softly on her cheek. Talley smiled with her eyes still closed. She mewed, “It’s so nice be back home, isn’t it my love?”
Whiskers nodded happily and said, “There really is no place like home. Staying at the Castle was like a wonderful dream, but this is where our hearts reside.”

The sound of strong winds blowing outside startled the two kitties in love. Whiskers said, “It sounds like hurricane Joaquin is starting to rev up. I’m glad we don’t have to worry about flying before the Coronation. I’m sure K. Pete is keeping an out on the weather conditions if we do have go up.”
Talley sat up in bed and said, “I hope my two guards, Zachary and Reba aren’t outside in this weather. I peeked out the window last night and saw them marching around the house. I know they are just trying to protect me, but I feel bad that they have to be outside. We should get ready for our day so I can invite them in for breakfast.”
Whiskers smiled. He loved the way Talley was always so concerned for the welfare of others. He said, “Knowing our sisters, Zachary and Reba are probably already inside enjoying a hot cup of coffee.”
Talley smiled and said, “Oh I hope so. Let’s hurry sweetheart. I want to be sure.”

After a nice relaxing shower together, Whiskers towel dried his pretty wife and she quickly reciprocated. Whiskers said, “I didn’t know that Neekah Boo has a new baby brother. I’d like to hear more about him. That is exactly what her and her sweet Mom needed in their house. I’m so happy for them and I’d like to get them a little something to welcome the newest member of their family.”
Talley smiled and said, “I’m sure Pete can tell you all the particulars. You could ask Neekah Boo, unless you want it to be a surprise.”
Whiskers nodded and said, “Yes, I like surprises. I’ll ask K. Pete to tell me more.”

Whiskers insisted on running a brush through Queen Talley’s fur, sitting her down at her vanity and counting down from one hundred. Talley loved the feel of being pampered by her beloved husband. As he brushed her fur to a lustrous sheen, Whiskers said, “I never realized how incredibly important it is to have the passing of the crown at the Coronation. But now that I think about it, it makes purrfect sense. If an emergency happened in our kingdom- God forbid- you would still be in charge of the empire. Let’s hope nothing bad happens between now and Saturday.”

Talley smiled as she got up to dress and said, “I’m sure everything will be fine. I do feel bad for Angel Tinker, missing out on two days as our Queen. Hopefully her dear Mom will be feeling better by Saturday. We have to keep her family in our prayers.”

Whiskers was almost dressed, just putting on his shoes when he said, “My pawrents will be gone during the day on Saturday, but Mom has promised to be home by Coronation Day time. She just might be a few minutes late. My Dad’s high school is celebrating their 50th anniversary with a luncheon and gathering of alumni teachers and even some students.”
Talley took Whiskers paw before walking out their bedroom door and said, “That’s fine sweetheart. If you’re late, you know my family will save seats for you and the girls.”
“Thank you my love. Now let’s go see what smells so delicious downstairs.” The house was filled with laughter and delectable breakfast aromas. It was indeed good to be home!

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my darling Queen Talley.

You Are My Everything ♥
You are the sunshine in the morning,
The highlighted, glistening dew;
The blooming flowers essence,
In the springtime hue.

You are the spinning of the Earth,
Every hour of every day;
The fluttering of butterflies and birds,
The beauty of the world at play.

You are my everything,
The sound of children's laughter;
The joyous bell song,
Of a happily ever after.

Hello Q Talley
Sunday is Blessing of the Animals Day, a custom held on the first Sunday in October to honor St. Francis of Assisi & his love for all creatures. The Blessing of Animals usually goes like this:

“Blessed are you, Lord God, maker of all living creatures. You called forth fish in the sea, birds in the air and animals on the land. You inspired St. Francis to call all of them his brothers and sisters. We ask you to bless this pet. By the power of your love, enable it to live according to your plan. May we always praise you for all your beauty in creation. Blessed are you, Lord our God, in all your creatures! Amen.”

This day also offers our pawrents an opportunity to reflect upon the positive impact we furry ones have on their emotional & physical well-being. To quote Charles Dickens: “♥What greater gift than the love of a cat♥”

Have a blessed weekend.✟

Animal Rights/Animal Welfare-What is Difference?
Most people simply agree that animal rights is a good thing. But when you dig deeper into the subject there are some very elementary differences between rights and welfare that, as a person who has companion animals, are difficult to swallow. Let’s consider the actual definition of each:

***Animal Rights***
To end all human “exploitation” of animals - this includes, but is not limited to, raising and slaughtering of livestock for human or animal consumption, eating meat, hunting, using animals for any medical or veterinary research, zoos (regardless of how well managed), circuses, rodeos, horseshows, dog shows, animals performing in TV commercials, shows or movies (regardless of how well treated any of the above are), guide-dogs for the blind, police dogs, search & rescue dogs, and the practice of owning pets.

***Animal Welfare***
To prevent suffering and cruelty to animals. And to provide care and good homes for pets in need. This often includes, but is not limited to, the funding and running of animal shelters (to provide a sanctuary for abandoned, abused, homeless, or unwanted pets, and to place them in good homes where possible, provide painless euthanasia for those that cannot be adopted, and to educate the public about the need for spaying/neutering their pets to prevent more surplus animals ending up in shelters), enforcement of anti-cruelty statutes (where their authority permits, initiating, lobbying for, and monitoring enforcement of legislation to ensure more humane standards of care for livestock, laboratory animals, performing animals, and pets.
When you actually take the time to read the differences between the two it becomes clearly evident that these are very disparate opinions and both bring up many issues that people have been fighting to change in our overall view of animals and their rights in this world. Note the last two lines of the Animal Rights definition. Obviously most of us have companion animals. What would our lives be without them? But more significantly if pets/companion animals were no longer allowed what would that do to entire species of animals? How can anyone endorse animal rights if they proport to advocate the entire annihilation of species? More than that, it’s well documented that animals and humans form a very special bond that is loving for both. Why should this be deemed wrong or illegal?
What are the fundamental differences between these two groups? Is there anyplace in-between the two philosophies that we can navigate? Must we be one or the other? And what are the actions taken by these groups that either endear people to them or drive them away? And how does the gigantic animal products industry in this nation play a part? We all have to give serious thought to where we stand on these two subjects.

Thanks very much for your support, votes & friendship. Keeping all in need in our prayers. Peace & love. Have a purrfect day. Dean

Not wanting to wake his beautiful wife
and using his softest voice, Whiskers began to meow his and Talley’s love song as she slept...
♪ Till then, let's dream of what there will be
Till then, we'll call on each memory
Till then, when I will hold you again
Please wait till then ♫

Talley loved waking up to the sound of her husband serenading her. She couldn’t help but smile as she opened her emerald green eyes, filled with love for her Whiskers.
Whiskers finished the last verse of the song, then gently gave his lovely Queen a good morning kiss. He smoothed the soft fur on her cheek and said, “I was just remembering the last day of my reign as King. It was a bittersweet moment. I felt a little sad that all the pomp and circumstance had come to an end, and I was definitely glad to say goodbye to the butterflies in my tummy everyday; but I felt a real sense of accomplishment at the same time. I know you didn’t suffer the nervousness that I always seem to have- you are much too head strong and it’s one of the many traits I admire about you; but do you hate to see your reign come to an end?”

Talley gave her husband a deep kiss and mewed, “I understand the feeling you’re describing sweetheart and it’s purrfectly natural. Nothing lasts forever, but instead of focusing on the endings of good things, I choose to hold the memories in my heart and keep living in that wonderful feeling we had the past two months. Now our whole future together lies before us, and that makes me very happy.”
As Whiskers listened to Talley, he marveled at the wisdom of such a young kitty. Talley always made him feel better, ready to face the day’s new challenges- as long as he had her by his side, the sky was the limit.

Whiskers kissed Talley once more and said, “Wait right here sweetheart. I have a present for you.”
Whiskers scrambled out of bed, over to his chest of drawers where he had placed the gift for safekeeping. He hurried back to their bed and placed a small green velvet box into Talley’s paws.
Talley sat up in bed as she opened the box. Whiskers watched eagerly and grinned from ear to ear when she gasped with delight.
She mewed, “It’s gorgeous Whiskers! I’ll wear it tonight at the Coronation.”
Whiskers took the necklace out of the box and proceeded to clasp it around Talley’s delicate neck. He said, “The deep cornflower blue stone is a sapphire. I wanted to get you a necklace that matched the stones in your September Queen’s royal crown, but I wasn’t sure what precious gems were used. I asked Lady Quincy to do some research to find out for me.

Lady Quincy was a big help and came back right away with the information. Then I had to enlist the help of Esmeralda, to find just the right sapphire that would look purrfect on you. Esmeralda knows all too well that any precious gem pales in comparison to your beauty. She procured this particular piece from a jeweler in Australia. Esmeralda told me the sapphire is said to represent the purity of the soul. How purrfect is that?”
Whiskers sat back to admire the necklace on his gorgeous wife. He nodded his approval of Esmeralda’s good taste and couldn’t help thinking that no matter how beautiful a piece of jewelry was, it really did get lost when worn by his stunning wife. It was difficult to look past the beauty and love that emanated from Talley’s entire being.

Queen Talley gently pawed the stone that hung around her neck. She said, “Thank you my love. I’ll be sure to thank Lady Quincy and Esmeralda too for assisting you.”

Whiskers kissed Talley once more, then got up to fetch her robe and slippers. Whiskers could feel the excitement of another Coronation day in the air. He said to Talley as he slipped her silk robe over her slender shoulders, “I was thinking about the past Queens and Kings we’ve had over time. My sister Callie always likes to come up with one word to describe their reign. King Bennie was adventurous, King Sammy was intellectual, Queen Lady Dolly was benevolent, King Steve was fun-loving, and so on. I was thinking about how to describe you, but you are all of those rolled up into one beautiful package. What made your reign stand out for me was the empathy you projected as our Queen. For you, it was as natural as breathing to demonstrate concern for and really listen to others ideas and feelings. I saw with my own eyes as your understanding of others developed into closer relationships with all your loyal subjects. I was in awe with the love and care and genuine interest you took in everyone you encountered. When CC remembers back to your reign as Queen, I believe they will remember you as our empathetic leader, a rare, but much needed trait for rulers of a happy and thriving community. We need more compassionate beings in this world, just like you my precious Queen.”

Talley smiled and said, “I like to think I have a little bit of my brother K. Pete, all of my sisters, and my dear pawrents in me. Now, after being Queen of CC for a month, I have a little bit of everyone in our kingdom in me.”
Whiskers smiled, gratified in the fact he would be going home today with his precious Queen to live happily ever after. He felt truly blessed.

The two kitties in love jumped out of bed, dancing their way across the royal bedchamber as Whiskers broke out into a song...

♪ The most beautiful girl in the world picks my ties out
She eats my candy, she drinks my brandy
To the one and only beautiful girl
The one and only beautiful girl
The one and only most beautiful girl in the world! ♫

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs, to my furever love, my heart, my Queen Tallulah.

Coming Home...
How simple my life is now you are here,
How I cherish each breath,
How I crave the light and laughter you have brought me.
I have fallen in love without taking a step,
Fallen into the sweetest of dreams,
How I hope no one wakes me.
The simplest gesture wraps itself around my heart,
Where I will hold it forever.

Each time we say goodbye a part of me weeps,
Though I know it is not forever
To my aching soul it is an eternity.
I see my happiness shine in your eyes,
Every time you hold my paw my heart skips a beat.
How sweet life is to be yours;
How meaningless life is without you.

They know nothing of the loneliness before you
Nothing of the empty tears I cried day after day,
How did you do it, I ask myself,
How did you banish the fear, the darkness?
You have made me see that nothing is that bad,
That I am strong and worthy of happiness,
You have saved me from myself.

Everyday I wake up and smile to myself
Knowing you are waiting for me,
Knowing you can't wait to see me.
How would I go on if you were not there to hold me up,
To bless me with your love and light?
How I am glad you have found me
My life is now complete...
I am home.

happy october!
colors finally started popping here in the past few days all at once as usually they come in nice slow stages, not so this year thanks to the heat last month. now our weather hinges on which way joaquin decides to go this weekend, whether into the caro-linas, up this way or out to sea, we'd all love to say out to sea, but looks more like a landfall somewhere along the east coast and till we all know we'll have to wait and see. janet is hoping on getting out this weekend as it's supposed to be better than it originally was, just a chance now of a shower tomorrow or saturday, then nice sunday and showers on mon and thurs of next week as of right now. sandy,ab,haley, angels

Dean's COTM Acceptance Speech:
Greeting friends. I am very honored to have been asked to catpaign for COTM. I remember back in August 2009 when brother Anderson was catpaigning and I helped with his surveys of shelters and rescues throughout the country & six foreign countries. I have been trying to decide upon a topic of interest to everyone.
We have certainly had several great platforms by recent Royals so I hope I have found a good topic. Brother Legend will be lending me a paw and doing some of the research for my catpaign.

I think it is safe to say that all kitties here are very caring and no doubt most families do support their local shelter as well as national animal welfare groups like The National Humane Society, the ASPCA, American Humane society etc. Mom has donated to several over the years and has learned that few of the national groups support local shelters. Lots of the money they receive goes for administrative costs, fund raising & other expenses. Therefore I plan to post the details on these well known groups and try to touch on where the money goes that they receive.
If you are like Mom, who wants to see her hard earned money actually benefit homeless & rescued pets, you will be interested in learning the details on these animal welfare groups. Legend is busy consulting Charity Navigator who evaluates charities & awards up to 4 stars to these charities & Charity Watch who assigns letter grades. Not all charities are included. I will explain their criteria. Our shelter is not on their list but it does cover a number of national groups and names you will be familiar with.

I will also discuss ways to help animals every day that will not cost a penny. I hope you enjoy my blogs
and I look forward to comments & your support. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect day. Kitty Kisses. Dean

Thank you so much ...
... for a great month at the castle ... and on the ship ... and visiting so many special places. Well done!!! You have earned a rest and the admiration of many here on CC.

I am hoping to visit the tunnels, but wonder if my wings will allow me to fly into them. Shall I plan on using my four paws? I'd like to do a bit of exploring, something I did not find time for when in residence.

♥ TUESDAY 9/29; There was a HealthNet Representative that came to see dad with some questions. Turns out she is a cat lady with seven kits!!!! Mom and her shared stories plus she got to meet several of us. I just happened to be asleep!!!!
Mom needed dad's help with laying out the last of the plastic edging in front of the flower bed and he's rarely ready before noon to do anything!!!! Now it's ready for when mom orders a few yards of garden soil.

♥ WHYSKRS #10378 is doing great with his diet as he has lost about 4 pounds since April. Mom just weighed him on 9/19 our Digital Pet Scales rather than taking him in since it upsets him so much. He weighed 21.6 pounds. He started out on April 2, 2015 and weighed at that time 25.2 pounds.

♥ THURSDAY 10/01; TEAKEE #25544 goes in to see Dr. Nancy in the afternoon at 2:15 to get a re-check on Bloodwork so it's possible we won't be on CC that day.

Hello Queen Talley
What’s purring with you today? It’s Wine Down Wednesday (that’s what Mommy calls it) so you know what that means - our cleaning lady Mrs. Maryann is here. As usual, I am hiding upstairs in my hammock in the scrapbook room, while helpful Casper Todd “supervises”. That boy is a strange one.

We have enjoyed both your catpaign and your reign as Queen. You did a purrfect job with both!

Happy Hump Day!

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Since this would be their second to last morning waking up in the Castle; before going to bed, Whiskers had requested coffee and Danish be brought to their room. The Castle Staff had all been fabulous during their month long stay. Flower had told his Auntie Queen Talley that him and his sisters would never, ever forget this magical month as royalty.
Whiskers heard a light knock on their royal bedroom chamber door. He kissed his beautiful wife before slipping on his robe and slippers. Talley looked at her husband questioningly. Whiskers smiled and said, “I thought we could have our coffee on the veranda one last time. I know the next couple of days are going to be hectic, so let’s relax together, if only for a moment.”
Talley nodded and had the pretty smile on her face that always made Whiskers weak in the knees.
Whiskers thanked the kind attendant and rolled the cart into their bedroom. Talley sat up in bed while Whiskers brought her silk robe and slippers. She said, “I wanted to go over my Coronation remarks with you sweetheart. I want to make sure I didn’t inadvertently leave anyone out that I wanted to thank. Of course, I owe the entire kingdom a debt of gratitude for their support and loyalty during my reign, but I only have enough time to single out a special few.”

Whiskers nodded, setting up the coffee and Danish on the balcony, pulling out a chair for his kitty love, then sitting down to go over Talley’s notes. He smiled the whole time he was reading. When finished he said, “It sounds purrfect my love. I know Lady Quincy will be thrilled and K. Steve and Dean will get a kick out of hearing their names mentioned. Lady Quincy really has gone above and beyond the normal duties of a Purrsonal Assistant to the Queen. I’m glad you singled her out for high praise. She is a delight and I’m glad my sisters and I have gotten the chance to know her and her family better. We’ll have to have them over to the house soon.”

Talley smiled and said, “I already have that in my list of things to do, once our lives get back to normal.”
Whiskers got up to give his precious Queen a warm kiss. He mewed, “You have been a marvelous leader to our CC Kingdom my love. And now with the spark of interest in the explorations of the tunnels, your reign will continue to live on. I’m so proud to be your husband.”

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my darling Queen Talley.

“I love you for all that you are, all that you have been, and all you’re yet to be.”

sports day today!
well janet slept in this morning and didn't hear steve doing his famous tarzan calls in the steady rain as it's warm 72 out there this morning which means it's still humid as all get outs till the front goes through as tomorrow's highs only mid 60s then lower to upper 50s fri-sun and back to the mid to upper 60s all next week. showers now again but not till friday afternoon through tuesday morning which will put a damper on janet's plans to walk, but she says she'll get them in between wed/sat morn-ings when it's nice and she can get out and walk early with a flashlight to see the sunrise, although one of the blocks she won't be able to see that so she can leave a bit later like 8am instead of 5:30 and she'll be able to get some of the blogging done. that outfit you gave to mali will suit him to a t and makes him look very handsome and dapper! :) janet's also got plans to finish christmas cards just needs a few addresses which weren't posted on the previous cc/fb list last year and she needs them as they did't get cards last year as she had to stop somewhere. this year a few who got them the past few years won't as again the $$ for stamps has to stop somewhere and once janet's got her checking built back up after doing some online shopping the costliest was nat's xbox 1 which he found one for $325 which is well be-low the going rate of $350-$400! he's trying to sell his xbox360 online as the stores here won't take it unless it's got all it's official hardware with it and nat's controller broke a long time ago. oh well german stew for supper the next few nights and freezing what's leftover, then chicken noodle soup after that, just has to get the stock/broth which she used for the leek and potato soup she froze last wednes-day. sandy,ab,haley,angels
