Q Talley COTM SEPT 2015 - Spring Glorious Spring

About Me

Active within 1 Day

Hi! My name is Q Talley COTM SEPT 2015 - Spring Glorious Spring

I am Domestic Shorthair from Jacksonville, FL

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

Age: 8 years old

Gender: F

Coat: short haired

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How We Met

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

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Oh how I have missed you my precious love! Our Mom got back home last night and we were very glad to see her! We haven’t left her side for a minute. Even Callie who usually gives Mom the cold shoulder after being away. I’m hoping to be back in your wonderful arms by tonight. My sisters and I are helping Mom unpack and as soon as she starts cleaning the house, we’re out of here. MOL!

We had something very interesting happen when Mom came home yesterday. Our Dad didn’t want to worry Mom, but Scamper had gone missing for the past three days. Dad still left food and water outside, but it didn’t look like it was eaten. Anyway, Dad was going to break the news to Mom when she got home, but lo and behold, when they drove up to the house, Scamper came running out of his cathouse! I believe that somehow Scamper knew Mom was coming home. Dad breathed a sigh of relief and told Mom the story. So this morning Mom went outside to feed Scamper and he was there waiting and he licked his bowl clean. Mom talked with him while he ate and right now he is sound asleep in the garage in his bed. Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie must have been watching over him!

As for me, Mom thinks I lost some weight, so she made sure I cleaned my bowl last night and this morning. I’m hoping as soon as I’m back with you and our wonderful family, I’ll get my appetite back.

I love you sweet Talley. I can’t wait to hold you in my arms again and cover you with kisses.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my darling Tallulah.

Pledge Of Love ♥
~~~~~
I've made a vow, to no one but you
I pledge my love to forever be true
I'll take care of you and treat you right
I'll lay beside you all through the night
I'll feed you and clothe you and keep you warm
I'll hug you and kiss you and give shelter in the storm
I'll listen to your problems help you solve them too
I'll make you a rainbow and let the sun shine through
I'll take your side even if you're wrong
Just to prove our love is strong
I'll plant you flowers and make them grow
They'll be a symbol of love that only we'll know
I'll whisper your name when no one is near
So low that only you can hear
You'll feel my love even if we're apart
You'll know that we are one in heart.

After a relaxing shower together, Whiskers watched
as his beautiful wife finished blow-drying her gorgeous fur. He sat waiting, brush in paw, so he could comb her fur to a lustrous shine. Whiskers loved pampering his precious kitty and he choked back tears thinking of how much he would miss his mornings with her when his Mom was gone. Whiskers shook his head, reminding himself it would only be for a few days.

Talley closed her beautiful eyes, enjoying the feel of her beloved husband touching her fur. She too would miss him, but she knew it wasn’t furever. As the two kitties in love dressed for their day, Talley asked, “Are you already packed my love?”
Whiskers nodded sadly and pointed to a small suitcase in the corner of the bedroom.
Talley mewed, “Is that all you’re taking?
Whiskers smiled and said, “I really don’t need too many clothes. I have plenty to wear in my closet back at Mom’s house. I mainly packed some of our photo albums and a couple of books. I hope you don’t mind my taking some of our photo albums. I like to look at pictures of us while I’m away from you. It makes me feel as if you are right there with me.”
Whiskers walked over to open his suitcase and mewed, “I’m also bringing our first edition of Sonnets from the Portuguese. I packed it the airtight case we got for it. I promise to be careful when I take it out. I thought it might help me to fall asleep at night if I read from our book of poetry while sitting under the moon. I’m going to miss you sweetheart, but I know you’ll be busy with the family and the hockey playoffs.”

Whiskers let out a heavy sigh. He said, “Besides, I’ll be the tom in charge of the house, helping my Dad take care of my sisters and Scamper. I know my Mom worries about Scamper when she goes away, but I feel as if we’ve built a repoire with him, the last few times we’ve visited. I think he’ll be okay.”

Talley nodded and gave her Whiskers a kiss. She said, “Just remember we’ll all be praying for your family and I’ll keep you in my heart always.”

Whitey and Orangie had made breakfast simple this morning. The girls were done cooking in no time at all, filling large platters with scrambled eggs, apple-wood smoked bacon, turkey sausage links and hash browns. The two expert chefs set the breakfast table in a help-yourself buffet style.

K. Pete and Neekah Boo were on their second cup of coffee and tea when Whiskers and Talley joined them at the table. Good mornings were said all around as Whiskers pulled out a chair for his lovely Talley.

K. Pete smiled and said to Whiskers, “Are you all set for your trip brother? Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie will be here soon. They’re still making their rounds up in Heaven.”
Whiskers nodded and said, “Yep, I’m all packed. I spoke with my Mom and she said it’s raining today in San Jose. Her plane doesn’t leave until tonight, so hopefully by then the rain will have blown through.”
K. Pete asked, “Was your Mom able to get the car rental that she wanted?”
Whiskers shook his head and said, “Not quite. Last time my Mom rented a Suburban. She likes to get a vehicle that will be large enough to carry the whole family comfortably and also make it a smooth ride for GM. But on such short notice, the car rental company only had a Chevrolet Traverse on hand. My Uncle will be driving and he said that will be fine.”

Breakfast was delicious as always and kudos were given to the two pretty chefs. Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie arrived right on time, ready to transport Whiskers and his sisters to their home in San Jose.

Whiskers and K. Pete brought everyone’s luggage down to the living room. Whiskers started to feel his eyes welling up with tears, but he quickly shook off his sadness as sweet Talley wrapped her arms around him lovingly. She mewed, “Don’t forget to think of me while you’re looking at the moon tonight. I’ll be thinking of you my love.”
Whiskers kissed Talley’s pretty forehead and said, “It’s a date!”

Callie, Whitey and Orangie were already on the Angels’ magical carpet, waiting for their brother. Whiskers kissed Talley once more and whispered in her ear, “I love you Talley, always and furever.”

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

Without You... ♥
~~~~~
I can't live without you.
I would breathe the air,
and my heart would beat,
but I would not feel the joy of life.
My dreams would be lost
like a leaf carted away by a storm.
I would gaze at the stars
without appreciating the
way they light up the sky.
I would pass the roses in bloom
without noticing their beauty.
I would no longer look forward
to each sunset and each dawn.
I would be broken,
never to be mended again.
Winter would own my heart;
its icy breath would steal
the warmth in my soul,
because I could not smile
without your love.
I could not know laughter
or happiness.
If you were lost to me,
I'd have no reason to try,
no reason to be.
You are my prayer,
my shelter from
hopelessness and despair,
my sunshine, my light,
my lazy days,
my peaceful nights,
and only you can keep the
spark in my soul burning bright.

since the sports day and sleepovers are
going to start the first wednesday in may, we've decided to ask you (knowing you're busy this week with rides on fb) if you or the others will be the chefs de cuisine like you were last year? we'll have the usual sleepovers on tues night into wed as it's getting lighter earlier in the mornings and we start as soon as it's light enough to run around outside.
there were 2 good check ins with the doctor yesterday janet goes back in october and is sporting a new tie up brace for her right ankle, then nat's clean and goes back in july, then it's poor mommy thanks to wheezing again brought on by allergies which are only getting worse, goes back in two weeks time and is trying new otc meds for them which janet and nat will get on errands today after work. janet sat outside all afternoon and then her older sister cindy stopped by after work on her car down in west springfield and stayed for supper using up leftovers from the cookout on sunday night. janet made supper between blood work early in the morning and their doctor's check ins late morning, so all's set for supper to-night/tomorow night chicken veg soup. angels,ab,haley

Dear Talley, It's Your Whiskers Again!
My Mom finally made it back home, but not without a few glitches. After Mom put air in the tire of the van, she locked us all in the house and since Scamper was still in the garage, she decided to shut the garage door and let him sleep. When she went to start the van, the battery was dead! When it rains, it pours!

So Mom called her AAA insurance to have someone come to help. When they finally got here, they jumped started her van. By now her tire was flat again. So the guy put air in her tire and found the leak. It was coming from the tire stem valve. The nice man asked Mom how long she had used the air compressor, which plugs into the cigarette lighter. It had only been about 10 minutes. The man told Mom the air compressor drained the battery. She should have turned the car on while using it, but it really shouldn’t have drained the battery after only 10 minutes. He told Mom to have her mechanic check the battery. So Mom made it to the mechanic’s shop. He told her the valves on all four tires were brittle and needed to be replaced. Fine- then Mom told him to check the battery and yep, it was bad. So Mom had all tire valves replaced and she bought a new battery. So everything is fine now. We’re running behind my love, so I’ll see you at the hockey games.

Here’s something to make you smile...after all the commotion at our house, Mom was able to coax Scamper back into the garage so she could lock him inside while she was gone. She left the side door open so he could catnap in the backyard if he wanted to. It’s a little warm here and Mom wanted to make sure Scamper had access to the backyard.

Thank you for the delicious apple pies sweetheart. You made my day!

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my darling Talley.

It's Love...
~~~~~
You know it's love,
when nothing feels better
than being together.
You know it's love
when holding hands
turns gray skies
to blue.
You know it's love
when each day spent together
holds all of the excitement
of the approaching spring.
You know it's love
when a single kiss
makes you see beauty
in everything around you.

What I feel for you
is love.

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Good morning my precious love! Well, it's a bit of a hectic morning here. Dad was getting ready to leave for work when Mom noticed he had a flat tire, so Dad had to take another car to work. Mom put some air in the tire with the electric pump to see if it would hold it. It did. It took about an hour to go flat again. So Mom is going to call their mechanic when they open up at 8 and see if they can fix the van while she waits. Mom thinks if she puts more air in the tire before she leaves, she should be able to make it there. It's only about 5-6 miles away. Whew! When Mom gets back, I'll be by to whisper sweet nothings in your pretty ear.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my darling Talley.

Whiskers and Talley awoke at the same time,
their heads lying side by side. Whiskers gave his beautiful wife a deep kiss and said, “I was dreaming all night about you and I were soaring through the clouds, flying like birds through the air leaving our mundane cares on the earth far below. I felt so happy and at peace, I didn’t want to ever wake up. But when I opened my eyes and saw you next to me, I realize I am living a dream with you, my precious Talley.“ Whiskers pulled Talley tighter into his arms, smelling her sweet fur against his face. “Oh Talley, what would I ever do without you?” Whiskers mewed, feeling his eyes starting to well up with tears. Talley kissed her husband’s tears away and said, “We never have to worry about being apart my love. We’ll be together for all eternity.” Whiskers nodded, silently thanking God for another day with his furever love.

Whiskers got out of bed to get Talley her robe and slippers. Talley sat up in bed smiling, loving the way her husband pampered her each morning. As Whiskers helped her with her robe, he asked, “Do you know if Neekah Boo’s birthday is coming up soon? I had her birthday listed as September 9th, but my Mom sent me a text saying Neekah Boo and her Mom Machelle have a birthday coming up on April 21st. I told my Mom I would check with you and K. Pete.”
Talley smiled and said, “We can ask my brother later sweetheart. If it is her birthday, I know the girls will want to plan a party. I’m sure all the shelter families will want to celebrate her special day with us too.”

It was a beautiful spring morning with the sun shining and the birds singing. Once everyone was seated at the table, they joined paws to say grace and a special prayer for all their furiends and families in need.

Today the girls had prepared Cinnamon Roll Pancakes. The pancakes were decorated on top with a spiral of a cinnamon-brown sugar mixture, then lightly drizzled with a cream cheese glaze. The pancakes looked like flat cinnamon rolls. Whiskers looked at his plate with amazement, took a bite and exclaimed, “These pancakes are SO good!” Angel Maggie smiled and said, “We had a feeling anything that looks and smells like a cinnamon roll, would be a hit.”

It was a wonderful start to their day. As they were all pitching in with kitchen clean up, Whiskers felt his phone vibrating. It was his Mom letting them know she had gotten a clean bill of health at the doctor today. He smiled, hopeful this would be a great week all around.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my precious Tallulah.

If I Dream About You... ♥
~~~~~
You're so far away,
but I know that if I
dream about you,
that I'll be just fine.
For I can escape to
the place
where I'm yours,
and you're mine.

thanks for
coming to my inpromptu throw together party as we nearly forgot about it seeing nat told janet she originally had the wrong day and date for my birthday, so nice to see many of our friends here who don't normally stop by seeing we don't wander past the first page anymore just to much time on a work morning although janet now has the time. she wants to to get out and walk this morning and might but that would be it for the day meaning no later walk with natty closer to suppertime as when it's warm like it is outside they don't walk when janet gets in from her walk. depends on how wet it is tomorrow once she's in from work if she gets out there to weed as it needs it so bad it's not funny! things are so dry not much rain to speak of in a few weeks or two and just a chance of showers tonight with the passage of a front as by thurs we'll be back into the 70s again for two more lovely warm days. only other chance of showers is friday and saturday, but we'll take it as we'll be back into the 60s through the first half of next week! closer to 70 on tuesday again!!! thanks for coming again and we're hoping to start sports day soon so are asking if you'd like to be the main chef seeing sandy's no longer here but she will still bake the cake for any birthdays angels,ab,haley

Whiskers’ tummy woke him and Talley up out
of a sound sleep this morning. Talley laughed and mewed, “I’m glad to hear your appetite is back sweetheart. I think I’ll bake some apple pies today. How does that sound?”
Whiskers laughed and said, “My tummy and I are very happy and appreciative! After all the delicious food we ate for your birthday celebration, I guess my tummy is getting spoiled. I better weigh myself and hit the gym this morning. I don’t my beautiful wife to have a chubby husband!”
Talley kissed Whiskers and said, “I‘d love you no matter what you looked like. I just want you to be healthy.”

Whiskers looked sad for a moment and said, “I still find it hard to believe that the Brown Furmily had to say farewell to two of their kitties in just the span of a few days. I can’t imagine the anguish their pawrents are going through right now. I hope it helps them to see the outpouring of CC furiends that have come to pay their respects the past couple of days.”
Talley nodded sadly and mewed, “I’m sure it helps, but it’s just going to take time. We have to let them know everyday that they are in our prayers. I know K. Neelix is brokenhearted without his precious Katie, but I’m hoping she’ll come back to him soon as an Angel.”

Whiskers kissed Talley’s pretty forehead and said, “I have something that will make you smile. My Mom told me that she heard a loud cat growling out in her front yard. She ran outside to check on Scamper. Scamper had his back scrunched up and was making growling noises as he looked under the van parked in the driveway. When Mom came out, he ran over to her and kept looking under the van. Mom got down on her knees and saw a small white doggie cowering under the van. He had a collar and she managed to coax him out from under the car. Scamper jumped on top of his cathouse and just kept growling. It turns out the little doggie lived a couple of blocks from our house. Mom took him home and his family was happy. They didn’t know he had gotten out from their backyard. When Mom returned back home, Scamper ran into the garage, laid in his bed and almost seemed to be saying thank you to Mom. Mom put some treats out for him. Soon, very soon, Mom feels like she’ll be able to get him into a carrier. So far, no one has responded to the Found Cat flyers Mom has posted on the trail. Mom said once she is able to check Scamper for a microchip, she’ll be ready to take the next step. You never know...there be a family missing him!”

Talley smiled and said, “I know your Mom will do whatever it takes to make Scamper a happy cat. I’m keeping him in my prayers. We should shower and go see what the family has planned for today. It looks beautiful outside.”

got a glorious weekend here ending or starting
off on a warm note seeing kids are off on spring break and to-morrow is a state holiday like in maine and state things are closed, not sure about fed don't think so. the church group came yesterday and most of the outside work janet had on her buc ket list got done still leaves sticks to be picked up mainly on the north side of the garage and bushes there to be pruned, but janet will have to get to the sticks a bit at a time and the bushes likely will wait till the fall to get done seeing janet didn't get it going last fall and can't this spring, but the main things all got done including planting some dasies that a friend dropped off and were here before janet got home from work, so were put out on the south side where thyme and lavender plants were last year. thyme 2 plants got put out front together in the same spot, the fence went up and the herb garden as well as the upper garden all got raked off as well as a few other things which had been sitting as janet's not had the time or chance to get to them! that leaves all the weeding of which are days worth, but she will do what she can when she can. at least we have 70s today/tomorrow and thurs/fri this coming week and more showers tomorrow night in-to tuesday am and friday afternoon or night into saturday and again monday next week. angels,ab,haley

The night before Talley’s birthday...
Talley was telling Whiskers about the wonderful day her and the girls had had in the village, as she was turning down the comforter in their bed, preparing for sleep. Whiskers was smiling and listening, seated at the chair by his nightstand, filling his backpack. He had a checklist in his paws. Talley walked over to her husband, curious at what he was doing. She mewed, “Whiskers, are we going for a hike sometime soon?” Whiskers held up his paw and said, “Just one second my love. Let me finish checking off my list, lest I forget something. There, got it!”
He pulled Talley onto his lap and said, “Yes sweetheart. Tomorrow is your special day and I wanted us to watch the sunrise together at our favorite picnic spot on the way to the Angel Tunnels. I have my backpack ready to go for both of us, although I might need you to carry the flashlight. It will still be dark as we make our way up the trail, but the moon and the stars should enough to light our way, don’t you think?”

Talley smiled that gorgeous, brilliant smile of hers and mewed, “Oh Whiskers, that sounds very romantic. I can’t wait! We’ll dress warmly and I can pack some pastries and coffee for us to take.”
Whiskers shook his head and said, “Already taken care of sweetheart. Callie and Angel Maggie are preparing some bacon cinnabuns and coffee thermoses for us to take and I’ve allotted room in my backpack for everything. You just have to bring your beautiful self.”
Talley gave her husband a warm kiss and mewed, “I love you so much Whiskers,” to which he replied, “And I you sweet Talley.”

As Whiskers went to the bedroom window to close the shutters slightly, he smiled when he saw activity going on in the greenhouse. He knew it had to be Bumper and Lisa preparing floral bouquets for Talley’s birthday celebration. Tomorrow was going to be a wonderful day!
~~~
Whiskers and Talley dressed warmly and were ready well before dawn. Excitedly, but very quietly, they tiptoed down the stairs to the kitchen. The delicious aroma of coffee brewing permeated the house. Callie and Angel Maggie were seated at the kitchen counter going over their French menu for hockey and Talley’s birthday dinner. Callie and Angel Maggie got up to hug Talley, wishing her the happiest birthday ever.
Talley started to sit down with them, but Callie said, “No, no, no sister! As much as we’d enjoy your company right now, you and Whiskers have just enough time to make it to your destination before sunrise. We’ll be here when you return.”
Callie winked at her brother who breathed a sigh of relief and whispered a thank you to his sisters.

With that, Whiskers took Talley’s paw and led her to the Audi that he had parked at the front door.

They drove and arrived to the trailhead in no time at all. Whiskers parked the car, helped Talley out making sure she was bundled up and then ran to get the backpack from the trunk. He locked the car and said, “Okay sweetheart, you go first and shine the light. I’ll be right behind you.”
Talley mewed excitedly, “Let’s hurry Whiskers. We can make it in time before the sun rises.”

When they reached the clearing that was their special picnic place, Whiskers said, “Let me go first now sweetheart. I’ll help you over the last few steep steps.”
Whiskers took Talley’s delicate paw and they both stopped to catch their breaths.

Although it was still dark, there was enough moonlight to cast a soft glow around the weeping willow tree. Talley froze and mewed in a soft voice, “Whiskers, where did that beautiful tree come from? Are we in the right spot?”
Whiskers chuckled and said, “Maybe our spot becomes a magical garden before sunrise.” He walked Talley over to the tree and said, “Happy birthday my love. The tree is a lasting symbol of our eternal love. I wanted to have a special tree in our special place, where we can always come and feel as one, even if we’re not together. I was told the Weeping Willow tree has a long history of symbolism in the Celtic origins. The willow was used in Celtic ceremonies intended for enhancement of psychic abilities, honoring the moon as well as increase the essence of love in our lives.”
Talley was speechless as she ran her paws gently over the bark on the tree, tears welling up in her pretty eyes. Whiskers continued to speak. “The Celts understood that the willow was instrumental in bringing about psychic visions that produced a clearer understanding of the world in which they lived. Another valuable trait of the willow is its flexibility. The willow is one of the few trees that can bend in outrageous poses without snapping. This is a powerful metaphor for those of us on a spiritual path. The message here is to adjust with life rather than fight it.”

Whiskers wrapped his arms around Talley as he said, “I’ve learned a lot about the mighty weeping willow. It has the ability to not only survive, but thrive in some of the most challenging conditions. The willow is a prolific grower, often taking root from a single branch that has fallen into some marshy bog. The most important lesson I’ve learned about our tree, is that the willow reminds us to keep growing and reaching higher no matter where you are planted.”

Whiskers kissed the tears from Talley’s beautiful face and said, “Let me unroll our blanket from my backpack so we can sit while we watch the sun rise.” Talley nodded and waited.

Whiskers set her down, then jumped back up to set his cell phone to play some music in the background. He had “Till Then” by the Mills Brothers playing softly which brought a loving smile to Talley’s face. Next he brought out the coffee and plates for the cinnabuns. Last but not least, he took a small box from his backpack, finally sitting down next to his kitty love. He mewed, “I have one more gift for you my love.”
Talley took the lovely box with the words written on top of the box, “Wrapped In Love.” Talley mewed, “Oh Whiskers, the box alone is beautiful!” When she took off the lid, inside was an elegant ring handcrafted in solid sterling silver. Engraved on the ring’s entwined bands were the words, “Happy 8th Birthday Tallulah.” Set into the gleaming circle that embraced the center of the ring were two small emeralds and a sparkling diamond. Whiskers slipped the ring on Talley’s paw. It fit purrfectly. He said, “You probably already guessed that Esmeralda helped me pick it out. What I was surprised to learn from Esmeralda was that the diamond is your birthstone and mine is the emerald. I didn’t know my birthstone. I guess that is why I was immediately mesmerized the first time I gazed into your emerald green eyes. It was fate!”

Talley threw her arms around her husband and said, “Oh Whiskers, I’m the happiest kitty in the world right now!”
Whiskers gave Talley a deep kiss. Suddenly the sun began to rise up slowly into the sky. The two kitties in love held each other tightly in silence as they watched the magnificent awakening of the earth around them. Talley couldn’t take her eyes off their Weeping Willow tree as the entire tree seemed to change into a brilliant golden globe as the sun rose. Talley finally said, “Whiskers, how ever did you get that tree planted all the way up here? I’m sure my Angel sisters must have helped.”
Whiskers chuckled and said, “Oh I have no doubt they would have been happy to help, but believe it or not, it was done with the help of many mere mortal paws. We have the strong males in our family to thank. I’ll tell you all about it sometime.”

Whiskers stood up and offered Talley his paw. He said, “Come here my love. There’s something I want us to do before we go back home.”
Talley followed her husband to the base of the tree. Whiskers took his Swiss Army pocketknife from his pocket. He gently scraped some bark from the tree and etched in his name and one half of a heart. He handed the knife to Talley and said, “Okay, you etch in your name and finish the other half of our heart.” Talley did so very carefully. Whiskers smiled and said, “Now we are connected for all eternity. If you ever need to find me for whatever reason, just come to our tree. I’ll be here.”

Talley smiled and said, “And I shall be here for you too my love. I can already feel the magic and power of our tree in my heart.”

Whiskers repacked his backpack and they headed back down the trail. Whiskers felt as if he was walking on air. He was so happy that Talley was pleased with her gifts. There was nothing in the world he wanted more than to make his beautiful wife happy.

As they approached their home, they could both see the house inside was shimmering with lights and activity. Whiskers smiled and said, “Today is a happy day for all of us. God gifted us with a very special kitty when He sent you to us. Now I know you girls have important hockey games tonight, but be prepared for a little celebration beforehand. I know Flower and the kids, especially little Pepe are looking forward to celebrating your day. I’ll remind everyone a couple of hours before the games, that you and your sisters need to rest up. They’ll understand.”

Talley shook her head, smiled and said, “Oh Whiskers, if the rest of this day is anything like this morning, I’ll be running high on happiness the whole day.”

When Whiskers and Talley walked through their front door, Talley was met with thunderous shouts of “Happy Birthday Talley!” Balloons fell from the ceiling and party horns were blowing. Talley had never felt so much love!

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my very special wife on a very special day. I love you sweetheart, always and furever.

P.S. I know I’ve mewed this poem to you before my love, but whenever I come across it, you always come to my mind.

I Seem to Have Loved You...♥
~~~~~
I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times,
In life after life, in age after age forever.
My spell-bound heart has made and re-made the necklace of songs
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms
In life after life, in age after age forever.

Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, its age-old pain,
Its ancient tale of being apart or together,
As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge
Clad in the light of a pole-star piercing the darkness of time:
You become an image of what is remembered forever.

You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount
At the heart of time love of one for another.
We have played alongside millions of lovers, shared in the same
Shy sweetness of meeting, the same distressful tears of farewell-
Old love, but in shapes that renew and renew forever.

Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you,
The love of all man's days both past and forever:
Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal life,
The memories of all loves merging with this one love of ours-
And the songs of every poet past and forever.

- Rabindranath Tagore

Whiskers smoothed the soft fur on Talley’s
beautiful head as they lay in bed, the sun just beginning to stream through their bedroom window. “Good morning my precious,” he mewed.” It sure is nice to be back home. We really are lucky to have to have so many places we can call home. I wish all the animals in the world were as fortunate as we are.”
Talley smiled and said, “I know what you mean my love, but I think we are all doing our part to make that a reality, at least in our little part of the world.”

Whiskers nodded, deep in thought and said, “I was so happy to see the outpouring of love for Angel Jesse and his family at the Castle Chapel yesterday. I think that will help make Jesse’s crossing easier for his family to bear. The CC community is without a doubt one big strong and loving family.”
There was a sad and quiet silence. Whiskers pulled Talley closer to his body. Finally Whiskers said, “I guess we should start getting ready for our day. I wanted to work in the yard today with the guys. I overheard Bumper, Paulie and Gato talking about a delivery of new plants and shrubs that arrived from the nursery while we were away. They want to get them into the ground before the next rain. You know what they say, April showers bring May flowers!”

Talley smiled and said, “That sounds nice sweetheart. I wanted to ask the girls if they’d like to go into the village this afternoon for lunch at the Tea Room. I know Callie and Angel Maggie want to do a little grocery shopping and I thought it would be a nice day for some window shopping. It might brighten everyone’s spirits to get out and enjoy the sunshine.”

Whiskers nodded happily and gave Talley one more kiss before hopping out the bed to fetch her slippers and robe. Unbeknownst to his love, Whiskers had preparations for Talley’s birthday, that would necessitate the help of some strong toms. Whiskers had spoken with his brother K. Pete the night before and his brother had told Whiskers him and the guys were ready to help in any way. Whiskers had been fretting over how he would get Talley out the house without spoiling his surprise, but as always, his intuitive little wife seemed to know what he was thinking without letting on.

The dining room and kitchen were humming with the sound of their blessed family. Whiskers paused as him and Talley walked down the stairs. It was wonderful to be back home and he relished every moment. Talley kissed Whiskers on his cheek and said, “Come on sweetheart, it smells as good as the sounds. “
Whiskers nodded, leading his kitty love to the dining room. Neekah Boo and K. Pete were enjoying their tea and coffee as they shared reading the newspaper.

It was an adorable sight. Ms. Murphy and Raven were sitting with their laptops open, always keeping alert as to the goings on around the shelters. Good mornings were exchanged. Whiskers pulled out a chair for Talley, pouring them both a cup of coffee.

Callie came from the kitchen and said, “We’re having Chicken Apple Sausage Omelettes with toast and home-fried potatoes this morning. Who’s hungry?” Everyone put up their paws! Callie smiled and said, “Coming right up. Angels’ Maggie, Lucy and Sylvie are on their way back from the Rainbow Bridge. They were checking in on Angel Jesse. As soon they get here we can eat.”

The Angels arrived right on time, happy to report Angel Jesse was doing just fine. He was glad to be rid of his ailing earthly body, but he missed his Mom and his family. All the Angels were helping him make the adjustment and they were keeping a close watch over his family.

After grace was said, breakfast was served and they ate hungrily. Talley told the girls about her plans to go into the village today for lunch and some shopping. The girls were delighted to come along. Everyone thanked the talented chefs for a delicious meal. Whiskers insisted on kitchen clean up so the girls could go get dressed for their excursion. K. Pete told Talley, “You can drive the Nissan NV into town since I know you’ll be needing the extra room for packages. We can use Gato’s truck if we need a vehicle for anything.”
Talley hugged her brother, then ran off to get ready. Meanwhile, K. Pete, Gato and Bumper met with Whiskers in the kitchen to help. Gato said to Whiskers, “You got a delivery here yesterday from Skippy, the proprietor of the Tree Farm in the village. We left it in the crate it was delivered in and set it out by the greenhouse. Do you want to let us in on what’s inside the crate?”
Whiskers smiled, drying his paws after rinsing the dishes and said, “It’s a Weeping Willow tree. I want to surprise Talley on her birthday tomorrow. Skippy procured one for me that is already one year old. He called it a bare root tree and said it’s already almost ten feet tall and should be easy to plant and take root where we want it. The biggest problem will be getting it to the spot I want it in. That’s where I’m going to need all the muscle I can get.”

K. Pete asked, “Where do you want to plant it Whiskers?” Whiskers had a wry smile on his face when he said, “I was hoping to plant it where Talley and I had our first picnic together. It’s a special place on the way to the Angel Tunnels.”
K. Pete nodded and said, “I know it well. We’ll need to carry the tree about a mile up the sloping path.

I think I’ll call Bobby, Inky and Storm to see if they can lend us a paw.”
Gato nodded his head and said, “Mitch and Thomas are teaching today, but I’ll ask Angel Joe if he can help us. You can’t get more muscle than in a bobcat.”
Whiskers clapped his paws and said, “Great idea! After we see the girls off, lets go uncrate the tree and take a look at it. I knew I could count on you guys to come up with a plan.”
K. Pete said to Gato, “Why don’t you pull your truck over to the greenhouse, We’ll need to also bring some dirt, shovels and a few buckets with us. We’ll drive to the trailhead, then take it from there. I know it’s a good forty five minute hike on foot, so let’s figure on at least an hour and a half to get the tree up the trail. If we run into any real problems, we can always ask Angel Joe to use some of his angel magic. But I think between us all, we can figure out a way to get the tree up there.

The girls were ready to head off. They all looked beautiful in their spring colored dresses. Whiskers and K. Pete helped them into the van, making sure everyone was buckled in. Whiskers helped Talley into the drivers seat. He kissed her and told her to drive carefully and have fun. K. Pete kissed Neekah Boo and the two toms watched the van until it was out of sight. K. Pete said, “Okay, let’s go plant us a tree.”

Bobby, Inky and Storm had already joined Gato, Bumper, Paulie and Angel Joe by the greenhouse. After uncrating the large tree, Gato and Paulie wrapped it securely in burlap, then they all worked together to strap the tree tightly to a board. They would carry it up the path as a team. After the tree and the supplies were loaded, they head off for the trailhead.

The guys went right to work and working in unison, they were able to get the willow tree up the trail without a hitch. Having a powerful bobcat with them helped immensely. Angel Joe was delighted to help.

With Gato and Bumper in charge, they dug a hole to twice the depth and diameter of the root spread. Gato made sure the tree was positioned with shelter from the winds from the surrounding hillside and also by the nearby tall ancient trees. What was most important to Whiskers was that the tree would overlook the lake, and it did. The organic-rich soils on the hill would make the willow flourish. Paulie provided a collar around the young tree to protect it from wildlife. He knew young trees are especially susceptible to nibbling from deer and elk. Once they had successfully planted the Weeping Willow, the guys stood back to admire their work. The graceful hanging limbs of the weeping willow provided a dramatic look against the seaside backdrop.

K. Pete asked Whiskers, “What made you choose a Weeping Willow tree for Talley?” Whiskers smiled and said, “Well, the Weeping Willow is the tree most associated with the moon, water and all that is feminine, just like Talley. It is the tree of dreaming, intuition and deep emotions. Symbolically it belongs to the beginning of spring, when all of life is stirring in the depths and begins to shoot outwards once again. I wanted to have a tree in our special place that Talley and I can always come to and feel as one, no matter what.”

K. Pete nodded and said, “I think my sister is going to love it Whiskers. I’m glad you two found each other.”
Whiskers hugged his brother and shook paws with all the guys. “Thank you all for helping me out today. You guys are the best family I could have ever wished for.”

After a job well done, the boys gathered their tools and headed back down the trail. When they got to the truck, K. Pete grinned and said, “Who’s up for a barbeque when we get back home?” There were cheers all around!

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my precious Talley.

Because of You...
~~~~~
Because of you,
I'm no longer lonely.
Because of you,
I no longer cry.
Because of you,
I can see the magic
of the stars on high.
Because of you,
the grass is greener;
the sky has never
been more blue.
Because of you,
my whole life
shines like new.
Because of you,
my heart is singing,
no room for sorrow or tears.
Because of you,
when darkness falls,
light is always near.
Because of you,
I feel young again,
and I'm letting hope reign.
Because of you,
I feel like singing
and dancing in the rain.
Because of you,
I'm filled with joy
and a radiant energy--
and all of this because of you
and what you mean to me.

Momma's been working in the front yard with some weeding and pruning. She also had to spray the rose bushes to rid of those Aphids. One ground Rose bush is blooming and the regular ones are all budding! The three Lilac bushes are blooming as is the Ranunculus. Daffodils, Tulips and Primroses are still blooming, too! The Fox Tail Fern on the front porch has lots of mew frons up and the ground ferns are all coming up as well!

Momma continue to feed and spend time with RHAEVYN across the street. When it's raining, Rhaevyn eats in the carport across the street. The last couple nights, momma has been feeding her can food. Rhaevyn still lets momma hold her and pet her.

Hi Q. Talley! Mom thinks that the voting
is over on the Animal Rescue Site Shelter Challenge. It doesn't specifically say that voting has ended, but it does say that the votes will be tallied starting on 4/11. We're assuming that means that voting is closed. Thanks for voting for our shelter! Hugs, KC and the Zoo Crew

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Whiskers gave his beautiful Talley a soft warm kiss and hug. He mewed, “I love you sweetheart, always and furever. My Mom was feeling a little sick to her stomach and dizzy this morning. We think it’s from the antibiotics, so she is resting and drinking lots of water. I thought we could read to her until she falls asleep. Dad will be home soon, then we can ask Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie to take us back to our home. I sure miss being with our family. I read this poem and thought of you my love...."

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my darling Talley.

Sailing On Dreams of You...♥
~~~~~
I searched long,
and I struggled endlessly
for a dream.
The dream seemed impossible,
so far away...
unreachable.
At times I thought I'd
never find it.
But it arrived suddenly.
And it was far better than
I could have ever imagined--
only it was not what I'd expected.
For how was I to know that
I'd find my dream in you?
The dream is not about fame or fortune,
and it's not about power or success;
the dream arrived via the heart,
built out of emotion
and borne of love.
The dream is as pure as a dove
circling heaven,
and it's blessed by legions of angels;
it's an awakening of the soul,
bringing me closer to God,
and making me see the goodness
in all things.
Now I feel complete at last,
and through the strength you've given me,
I feel as if I can accomplish anything.
Now I'm sailing on these dreams of you.
There's nothing in life that I'd rather do,
than dedicate my heart and soul
to a lifetime of loving you.

Talley laid her head on Whiskers’ furry chest
as he held her tightly in his arms. Whiskers stroked his beautiful wife’s soft fur as he softly hummed their song “Till Then.” Whiskers’ heart was breaking as he felt Talley’s tears on his chest. They had had to say farewell to another dear furiend yesterday, sweet Jesse had been called back to Heaven after a valiant struggle to stay with his dear Momma and his family. It was Jesse’s time and Whiskers had been happy to hear that Jesse went straight from his Mom’s loving arms right into the hands of God. He couldn’t think of more poignant way to pass over the illustrious Rainbow Bridge.

Talley tried to stifle her sobs against Whiskers’ chest. Whiskers held his precious girl even tighter. He whispered, “We have believe that Jesse is with all our Angels now my love. His Momma didn’t want to see him suffer and we have to be grateful that God took our furiend peacefully. Jesse was in his favorite spot in the whole world, wrapped loving in his Mom’s arms. I have a feeling he’ll be back with all of us soon. Knowing Jesse, he’ll master the use of his angel wings in no time at all. And let’s not forget all our wonderful Angels met Jesse at the gates of Heaven. I look forward to hearing from Angel Lucy, Angel Sylvie and Angel Maggie. You know they’ll have wonderful stories to tell us of Angel Jesse’s homecoming.”

Talley looked up at her husband and he gave her a soft kiss. Talley mewed, “I know sweet Jesse is in a better place now. I can feel it in my heart, but it still hurts so much. I guess all we can do now is pray for him and try to comfort his precious family. Yes Whiskers, let’s try to be strong for Jesse’s family.”
Whiskers smiled and said, “That’s my girl. We will get through this together, as a family. Our family is our strength. Now let’s take a nice, warm shower and be grateful for another day. I always thank God each morning when I wake up and see your angelic face next to mine.”

Callie, Whitey and Orangie were in the kitchen preparing veggie omelets and the delicious aroma of applewood smoked bacon filled the house. Whiskers and Talley joined their sisters asking where Mom Mandy was. Callie smiled and said, “Mom is outside feeding Scamper. I think she wanted to spend some time chatting with him, letting him know she is doing fine so he doesn’t worry too much. Dad already left for work. Why don’t you and Talley take the coffee to the table. We have some apple cinnamon muffins that are just about ready to come out of the oven.”
Whiskers smiled and nodded as his tummy let out an audible growl.

Whiskers Mom joined Talley and him at the table. Mom Mandy was happy to report Scamper was fine and finished his food down to the last lick. She went on to say since the sun isn’t coming out today, Scamper said he was going to take a cat nap in his cathouse.
Whiskers poured his Mom and his wife a cup of coffee and said, “How are you feeling this morning Mom?”
Mom Mandy smiled and replied, “I’m feeling much better. I know you are all anxious to get back to your home, so I don’t want you to worry about me.”
Mom Mandy got up to give Talley a warm hug. She had heard about the crossing of their dear furiend and said, to Talley, “I’m so sorry for your loss sweet Talley. I know you kitties want to get back to your family and furiends to pray together. Please give my condolences to Angel Jesse’s family. I have a card I’m going to put in the mail for his dear Momma.”
Talley gave Mom Mandy a warm hug. She said softly, “Are you sure you’ll be okay without us here?’
Mom Mandy smiled and said, “I’d be lying to say I won’t miss you kitties, but I will be just fine. I can’t thank you all enough for helping put the finishing touches on George’s room. I promise to take it easy. I’ve found if I take breaks in between doing chores, I can get a lot more done without tiring myself out.”

Whiskers hugged his Mom and said, “Don’t forget Mom, we’re just a phone call away if you need us.”
“I know sweet boy,” Mom Mandy said. “I promise to call you every day with updates. Now let’s enjoy this delicious meal the girls have prepared for us.”

The happy family said grace and a special prayer for Angel Jesse and his family. Whiskers felt good about going back home. He knew in his heart his Mom was doing well and he wanted to get home to prepare for a very special day coming up.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my precious Talley.

Lifetime of Happiness...
~~~~~
Every day, I close my eyes
and dream about you.
I see us together
before the candlelight.
It feels so right as
I kiss you,
caress you,
and hold you tight.
As you gaze into my eyes
and tell me how much you love me,
my knees grow weak,
and my heart skips a beat.
Yet I suddenly feel a tempest
that's as powerful
and grand as the sea,
because your words touch
something deep inside of me.
I hold you closer still,
heart and soul whole at last,
and I swear that my love for you
will never die,
that I'll never let you go.
As I look into your eyes,
I vow that I'll try
to build a lifetime
of happiness with you.

- Bobette Bryan

Whiskers and Talley had gotten up early this
morning to fix breakfast for the family. Talley had decided the night before that she would make silver dollar pancakes, so she had all the ingredients laid out on the kitchen counter. Whiskers was squeezing some oranges for fresh juice when his Dad came into the kitchen.
Whiskers looked up and asked, “Are you going to work today Dad? Now that Talley is here with us, I know we’ll be able to keep a close eye on Mom. You don’t have to worry.”
Talley nodded her head in agreement as wiped the flour off her paws and came over to give Dad Joe a good morning hug. Dad Joe smiled, kissing the top of Talley’s pretty head and said, “I knew I could count on you kitties. I told Mom I would go to work if she promised to take it easy for another day. She looks much better. I was very concerned about the swelling around her eye, but it seems the antibiotics are working.”
Whiskers nodded and said, “We know Mom is getting restless from taking it easy, but we thought with Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie’s help today, we could help Mom finish the painting in George’s room. I know Mom wanted to finish the trim while she has everything taped off.”
Dad Joe grinned and said, “That would be wonderful Whiskers. Talley, be sure to tell Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie we are very grateful for their help. I hope they can stay for dinner with us tonight.”
Talley said she was sure they would. Dad Joe said to Whiskers, “I know your Mom wants to get the cat shelves up on the wall soon, but I told her to wait until this weekend. I’ve asked my brother in Santa Cruz if he could help us with that and he was very enthusiastic about the project. Your Uncle is a great handy man and he said this would be his first time at putting up a cat highway on the walls.”

Whiskers laughed and said, “That’s great Dad. I’m sure that is a big load off of Mom’s mind. Talley and I have breakfast almost ready for you Dad. I’ll bring you some coffee while you wait. Is Mom still asleep?”
Dad Joe nodded and said, “I told her to stay in bed for awhile longer. I’m going to feed Scamper right now.”
Just then Callie and Orangie came into the kitchen from the side door. Callie had caught what her Dad had said. She smiled and mewed, “Already done Dad. Orangie and I took Scamper his food and some clean water. He said to say thank you for letting him sleep in the garage last night. It looks like the light rain has finally let up, but he was happy to be in his heated bed. Orangie is going to go give Mom an update on Scamper because we know she has been worried about him.

Scamper told us he misses the chats he had with Mom. We assured him Mom is feeling better and she’ll be back to normal soon.”

The delicious aromas of pancakes and coffee woke Mom Mandy from her sleep. She smiled knowing that ever since Talley had arrived, her baby boy Whiskers was as happy as a clam once again. She took a quick shower so she could join the family. Dad Joe has already finished his scrumptious meal. Mom Mandy was just in time to see him off to work. Dad Joe smiled as he hugged everyone good bye. He knew his wife was in good paws.

Whiskers pulled out a chair for his Mom and paused to feel her forehead. Mom Mandy laughed and said, “I’m fine Whiskers, just a little bit weak. I need to move around. I’ve been resting much too long.”
Whiskers smiled and said, “Not just yet Mom. Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie are going to be by later to help us finish up the painting in George’s room. You can supervise.”
Talley nodded and said, “We’re going to take good care of you Mom. After breakfast, Whiskers and I will go down to the creek to feed the ducks and fill their water bucket. After we finish the work on George’s room, the girls and I are going to prepare Lemon Mushroom Chicken for dinner. It’s one of my Dad’s favorite recipes. I saw some zucchini in your refrigerator that needs to be used. Whitey suggested we make some zoodles as a side dish. Don’t worry about a thing Mom. We have everything under control.”

Mom Mandy held out her arms for a hug. She loved her babies so much. “Thank you kitties. I don’t know what I would do without all of you.” The family joined paws and hands to say grace and give thanks for another blessed day together.

After a quick cleanup, Whiskers and Talley put on light jackets and set off to feed the ducks. Callie gave them both an umbrella, just in case. Whiskers put his arm around his beautiful wife as they strolled down to the creek. Whiskers took a deep breath of the fresh air. He thought, “Talley is here with me. All is right with the world once again.”

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my darling Talley.

More Lovely...
~~~~~
How do I define love?
It's the feeling I get
when I'm with you,
a desire to hold you
and share everything with you.
It's the flutter in my chest
and the dreamy look
in my eyes when I
think about you.
It's the emptiness
I feel when
I'm away from you.
It's a certainty that
what I feel for you
will last forever
and never fade but
only grow stronger each day.
For my love for you
is a commitment
of heart and soul.
It never grows tired;
it never grows old;
it only grows more lovely
each day.

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Oh sweetheart, I thoroughly enjoyed reading your love meows to me this morning. Pepe is such a delightful kitty and I could just imagine the wind blowing through his fur while riding in our boats. You had both me and my Mom smiling the entire morning!

Mom just finished putting the first coat of paint on George’s room. When we sat down at the computer to continue our love story, we read about King Bennie crossing the Rainbow Bridge. We were deeply saddened. King Bennie was one of our first furiends on CC. My Mom remembers when she traveled to N. Carolina to be with her stepson and his wife after they had baby George. Mom was there to help out, only she didn’t have much experience with babies. K. Bennie’s Mom Jenny, who lives in S. Carolina, gave my Mom her phone number to call when she needed advice. Such a wonderful, loving family. Our hearts go out to them. K. Bennie was quite a character.

Anyways, I’ll back this evening to whisper sweet nothings in your pretty ear. We want to do our regular CC voting and make sure we are on time for hockey tonight. I love you sweet Talley, always and furever.

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

The Love of My Life ♥
~~~~~
I found the love of my life
Forthright, honest and kind
With a warm personality
And her brilliant, incisive mind

With her optimistic manner
She swept me off my feet
No one else could be
So genuine, so sweet

The center of my universe
There in times of need
Encouraging, resilient
Her strength a comfort to me

I treasure our moments together
And reflect on our blessed life
My precious devoted soul mate
My loving caring wife.

Whiskers helped Talley into the Audi.
She was on her way to invite Alfonso, Tina and Pepe to join them on the lake for a boat ride. Whiskers felt his cell phone vibrating in his pocket. He looked at Talley nervously and said, “I bet that’s my Mom with my test results. Do you think you could take the call for me my love? I’ve been worried about what Dr. Natt will have to say. I really don’t want to take any more medicines.”
Talley kissed her husband and took the phone from his paw. Talley greeted Mom Mandy with a happy mew. Whiskers tried to read the expression on Talley’s face for a clue to his condition. Talley was good at keeping a poker face, but she knew Whiskers was anxious. Whiskers breathed a huge sigh of relief when a beautiful smile crossed Talley’s face. Talley winked at Whiskers, as she chatted with his Mom. Whiskers was beside himself with curiosity, so Talley thanked Mom Mandy for the good news and ended the call.
In a barely audible whisper, Whiskers asked, “It has to be good news, right my love?”
Talley hugged her sweetheart and said, “Yes my love. Your numbers are the same as last month. There is still a trace of red blood cells that keep showing up, but Dr. Natt said as long as the numbers don’t go up, then you are a- okay. I know better news would be no red blood cells showing up in your test results, but I think we should be grateful you are holding steady. Our prayers have once again been answered!”

Whiskers picked up Talley in his arms and gently spun her high in the air! He mewed, “I thought you two were never going to stop talking, but I knew you wouldn’t keep in suspense if it had been bad news.”
Talley giggled and said, “Your Mom told me to thank Angel Maggie for the delicious recipe for Skinny Shepherd’s Pie. She said as soon as she feels better, she wants to surprise your Dad with it for a nice, sensible dinner. I didn’t mean to make you anxious sweetheart. I enjoy talking with your Mom.”
Whiskers kissed Talley once more and said, “I know my love, and my Mom loves talking with you. I’m so glad I won’t be seeing Dr. Natt for a while. She’s a nice lady and a good doctor, but I’m fine with the occasional phone calls to just say hello.”

Whiskers watched as Talley drove off, waving to her until the car was out of sight. K. Pete had pulled the Nissan NV into the driveway. Whiskers told K. Pete the good news about his test results. The two brothers high pawed one another. Whiskers took a deep breath of the fresh Spring air and felt everything was going to be just fine.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my darling Talley.
