Q Talley COTM SEPT 2015

About Me

Active within 1 Day

Hi! My name is Q 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

Dear Talley, My Love, It's Your Whiskers' Again!
I don’t want you to worry my precious Talley. My Mom was able to speak with my vet, Dr. Natt for quite awhile, but the doctor had several unscheduled patients to attend to while my Mom waited. One of the patients was the most beautiful golden lab my Mom had ever seen. Her name was Venus and when her owner was at the front desk, Venus came over to my Mom and sat her head on Mom’s lap. Of course Mom loved it and petted the beautiful doggie, waving to the owner it was okay. Later my Mom found out Venus is blind and suffering from arthritis in her hips at the age of 14. My Mom could not even tell Venus was blind. Mom had thought she was looking right at her, but it must have been the sound of Mom’s voice...and the smell of cats on her clothes. MOL!

So after another chat with Dr. Natt., my Mom feels better about my upcoming surgery. Dr. Natt has known us since we were born, back in 2004, so we trust her. My Mom explained to Dr.Natt how healthy I have looked and just this morning was running up and down the stairs! Mom wanted an answer as to what could happen to me if I did not have the surgery?

My Vet had a list of problems that could develop, but she said I might be just fine without the surgery too. But Dr. Natt did answer Mom’s question, “Do you think I should risk this?” Dr. Natt finally said if it was her pet, she would do it now, rather than waiting until it was a problem. I’m basically healthy, so I should be able to get through the surgery with lots of TLC. I know I have that with you my love.

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

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers

Whiskers loved holding his beautiful wife
in his arms when he woke up. Seeing her lovely face first thing in the morning always made his heart swell with love for her. The two kitties in love lay in bed listening to the cold wind howling outside.
Whiskers said, “ I was so glad yesterday when K. Pete put Scraps and his hard working Clowder on the Foundation Payroll. I got a little choked up seeing Scraps and his team of workers looking so proud. Those cats are going to be a fine asset to our community. Scraps kept shaking my paw, thanking us for all we’ve done for them. It was heartwarming. I’m just glad we were able to help them.”

Talley smiled and said, “Myrna, Norma Rae and the girls feel the same way. They approached me yesterday, asking if there was any thing they could do to help show their gratitude. I told them their furiendship is all the payment we need. Besides, they have been busy fixing up their new cave shelter, making it into their own home. And talk about neat and tidy; they are fastidious about keeping everything clean and orderly. The Clowder Kitties are indeed very special.”

As Whiskers and Talley dressed warmly for another chilly day outside, Whiskers said, “Valentine’s Day is this Sunday my love. I know Queen Angel Mallow has something planned at the Castle, but maybe afterwards we can plan to have a romantic late dinner here at home. We can ask Orangie to invite Hedley, I’m sure Whitey would like to have Blue here and maybe K. Pete would like to invite lovely Miss Neekah Boo. I know the weather is going to be frightful, but perhaps Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy wouldn’t mind transporting our guests over for an evening. We can tell Gato to invite Tuna and maybe we can ask Esmeralda to spend the weekend with us again. I’m sure she must miss her late husband Chester, especially on Valentine’s Day.”

Talley nodded and said, “Let’s discuss it with the family in case they have other plans. Either way, I think it’s a good idea to invite Esmeralda over to our home. It’s always a joy to have her here with us and the kids adore her. I know her, Adele and Norma Rae have become good furiends already.”

Whiskers kissed Talley once more, before taking her tiny paw in his and leading his beautiful wife down the stairs.

This morning Opal and Lisa were assisting Whitey and Orangie with breakfast. The girls divided up the duties in preparing Lemon Poppy Seed Waffles, mixed fruit bowls, sunny-side-up eggs to go over the waffles and once again, Maple Chicken Breakfast Sausages, courtesy of Victoria and Phillip. Barb, Beatrice, Faith and Adele were hard at work making strawberry-rhubarb butter to top off the waffles. Callie and Angel Maggie were brewing an aromatic expresso that filled the air with the sweetness of caramel and a hint of chocolate. Callie knew the smell would send Whisker’s olfactory senses off the chart!
Angel Maggie laughed and told her sister, “We should try to find some coffee beans that are flavored with apples. That would send Whiskers into a tailspin!”
Callie giggled and said, “My brother might be disappointed when him and his tummy might be expecting Talley’s apple pie, only to have a cup of coffee at the table.”
All the girls laughed at Whiskers’ penchant for Talley’s apple pie making.

Whiskers and Talley joined their family at the table for a cup of the special espresso Callie and Angel Maggie had brewed. Whiskers took a sip and closed his eyes. “Ah, that is delicious. I detect a hint of caramel and chocolate in it.”
Callie giggled and said, “You did it again brother. Your nose always knows!”

While waiting for breakfast, Raven and Ms. Murphy had finished checking the shelter cams, happy to report everyone looked warm and cozy. Both cave shelters were having their own breakfast and music filled the air for a festive mood. Even though it was brutally cold outside, you would never know it inside of the caves. K. Pete and the Angels’ were very satisfied with the work that had been done.

K. Pete told Whiskers that even though not much snow had fallen overnight, there was still a lot of frozen ice on the roads that he wanted to clear this morning. Whiskers nodded his head and said, “I’m ready when you are brother!”

Timothy and Paulie Jr. sounded the breakfast chime. Once everyone was seated, they joined paws and bowed their heads in prayer, giving thanks for the food and family together for another blessed day.

After a few minutes of silence, except for the subtle sounds of intent eating, Whiskers and Talley told the family about their idea for a late night Valentine’s Day dinner at home. Gato was first to say, “I’d love to invite Tuna over to the house. I have a special Valentine’s Day gift for her that Esmeralda helped me pick out.”

Talley asked, “What did you get Gato? I’m sure it’s lovely.”
Gato smiled as he reached into his pocket pulling out a small jewelry box. He said, “I haven’t wrapped it yet. I wanted to show it to all of you first. Flower and Ralph helped me with the photos inside.”

Gato opened the box to show a beautiful, shiny gold heart locket on a lovely serpentine gold chain. He carefully opened the locket with his large paws. Inside was a photo of him and Tuna on one side of the heart; on the other side was a photo of Tuna’s daughters, Pixie and Luna.”
Everyone oohed and awed. Gato was beaming. He said, “It was actually Flower’s idea to put the photo of Tuna’s girls in the locket. I’m not to savvy in the romance department and I thought Flower’s idea was a good one.”

Everyone agreed. Whiskers laughed and said, “That little skunk is mature beyond his years!”
Talley nodded, smiling and said, “That’s our boy! Yes Gato, I know Tuna will love your gift.”

K. Pete said he would be calling Neekah Boo this morning and he would ask her. Orangie and Whitey also said they would get back to Whiskers as soon as possible.

The Lemon Poppy Seed Waffles were a big hit and the strawberry-rhubarb butter was gone by the end of the meal. The chefs all took a bow, giggling appreciatively at the accolades bestowed upon them.

Whiskers helped Talley clear the dishes from the table. She said, “After you and Pete get back from clearing the roads, we can go into the village and pay a visit to Esmeralda. I’m sure the girls will have a grocery list for us too. How does that sound sweetheart?”

Whiskers finished buttoning his heavy jacket, before pulling Talley into his arms. He mewed, “As long as you’re with me, it sounds wonderful.”

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

“For yesterday’s memories,
today’s love,
and tomorrow’s dreams...
I love you Talley!”

❀ Mews from Mallow Castle ❀
Kitties are still relaxing around Mallow Castle, and after Queen MJ finishes sharing her last two Lost & Found stories kitties start to speak up about their own families’ experiences. Kelsee says:

“Mom told me that her Grandma moved away from Detroit up North to Oscoda and couldn't find her cat on the day she left, so they moved without it and came back several times to look for it at the house and never found it. But one day they heard a meow at the back door of the new house and lo and behold..that darn cat found her way to the new home all by herself...they knew it was her cause she still had her collar on”

Furry heads nod in agreement and Rhoamin adds:

“Mom and dad had a gray tabby named Spunky who hitched a ride one day and ended up in another town about 30 miles away!!!!

When he was about a year old, he had gotten hit by a log truck and amazingly survived with only having to amputate his tail as he had no control of it and a fractured pelvis. He looked like a Bobcat after his tail gone as he had the black fur tufts on both ears like a Bobcat.

One day, there was a Lin Care van at the neighbors and Spunky was a curious guy and got in the van. By time the driver got to his next destination he had been surprised by a cat! He asked the people if they could keep him till he could find the owners, as he had an idea the kitty was Mom & Dad’s. A week later when the man came back to the neighborhood he asked Mom if they were missing a kitty. He told Mom & Dad where Spunky was, so they called the people who were keeping him & made arrangements to go get him the next day. Turned out that they knew each other!!!!”

KC and the Zoo Crew have a story to tell too:

“Our Mom has had three cats go missing, and two of them were eventually reunited with her. The first cat got lost when the family moved. Mars came with them but apparently got lost the first time she was let out and ended up back in the old neighborhood. For months people would call saying they'd seen her and Mom would go looking, only to be disappointed. Then, after a full year, Mars showed up at the new house! There were identifying features that proved it was actually Mars come home. Mom was a teenager then and was so happy to have her cat back!”

Everyone smiles as Kelsee has the last word “...and people say dogs are smarter then us...NO WAY!!!!”

I’ve got no argument with THAT! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
I didn’t want you to worry sweetheart when you didn’t hear my love meows to you. My Mom is going out to run errands today. She didn’t say what for, but I can see she is preparing the bedroom for something. I can only guess it has to do with my surgery next week. I hope to be whispering sweet nothings in your pretty ear very soon. Love furever from your Whiskers.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my beloved Talley.

❀ Mews from Mallow Castle ❀
Decisions, decisions, decisions!

You know, sometimes durin’ my campaign I just could NOT choose a story to tell ya! Here, let’s change gear for a minute and while we’re recoverin’ from the Mardi Gras festivities I’ll read a couple and see what YOU think:

“Sept 2, 2014 - Cripple Creek, Colorado ~ Emerson the cat returned to its owner Saturday two and a half years after he went missing.

“Emerson's owner, Frankie, believes the cat fell from her third story balcony in Littleton and walked away. After six months of searching for the cat, she assumed he was dead.

“Frankie was working on her property in Cripple Creek when she saw a cat in the distance. At first she didn't know it was Emerson. But then the cat sprinted to her and started to lick her. He had found her; miles away from her Littleton home and almost three years later.

“The cat was found severely hungry, with a healing wound and what looks like a previous head injury.

“Emerson is now resting at home with Frankie. She calls him the "miracle kitty."

And then there’s THIS one:

“November 12, 2013 – Racine Wisconsin ~ Lindsay O’Neill never thought she’d see her cat Sammie again. The sweet tabby had been missing for five long years. But last week, O’Neill got the call that owners of missing pets hope and pray for … Sammie had been found!

“According to the Associated Press, a local resident had seen the cat around her yard and became concerned about the cat as the weather was getting colder. The woman brought Sammie to the Wisconsin Humane Society, where they checked the cat for a microchip. Fortunately for everyone, Sammie had a microchip and it was up to date with O’Neill’s current contact information.

“O’Neill couldn’t believe Sammie was coming home. At first she was worried that he might have changed during his long tome away but reports that he’s the same affectionate, loving cat she remembers. Other than a bit of a skin condition and a healed mouth wound, Sammie’s in tip top shape health-wise too.

“Alison Kleibor, director of the WHS Racine Campus, says microchips are critical investments for every pet owner. “Microchips make reunions like this possible. They are inexpensive and very effective”

See my dilemma? While I was preparin’ my campaign I just found SO many great stories out there, how could a kitty pawsibly choose? ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Whiskers and Talley were both lying awake this
morning, listening to the storm that was unleashing snow across the Northeast once again. Inside their home it was warm and cozy, but Whiskers could tell from the sound of the winds howling, they would probably be experiencing sub-zero temperatures once again.

Talley nestled closer into her husband’s warm, furry body. She said, “We planned the move into the new cave shelter just right. I hope Scraps and the Clowder kitties aren’t frightened.”
Whiskers thought for a second and said, “I don’t think they’ll be able to hear the wind like we do. Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy made sure the cave was well insulated and protected. If anything, I’d be kind of excited to watch the outside weather on their new flat screen 4K Ultra TV. Angel Lucy thought of everything!”

The two kitties in love listened to the wind for a while longer before deciding they better get up to help K. Pete and the guys with the obvious slow plowing that was going to be needed.

After a warm shower, Whiskers had his beautiful wife sit down at her vanity so could brush her lustrous fur. This was Whiskers favorite part of the morning, besides their first good morning kiss, of course. Talley closed her eyes, enjoying the feel of being pampered by her beloved Whiskers.
Talley asked, “How is Scamper doing at your Mom’s house? Has she been able to win him over yet?”

Whiskers smiled as brushed, counting the strokes in his head. He said, “Not yet sweetheart. Mom said they are having unusually warm temperatures in San Jose right now and it feels almost spring-like. Scamper has been gone during the day, probably enjoying the sun, and coming back in the evenings to eat and sleep in his cathouse. Scamper is still very wary of Mom, but she just keeps talking to him and she gets a little closer each time. But she won’t give up. Scamper seems to like the sound of her voice and has even started to close his eyes while listening, almost as if he is relaxing.”
Talley laughed and said, “That’s wonderful Whiskers. We all know how hard it is to earn the trust of us cats, especially those of us that had a difficult start in life. I’ll keep a pawsitive thought for Scamper and your Mom.”

Whiskers nodded, counting his one-hundredth stroke, and then kissing the top of Talley’s pretty head. “There my love. You look gorgeous as always.”

Talley smiled as she turned around to get up and wrap her arms around her husband. “Thank you my love. Now let’s go downstairs and get something into that tummy of yours before it starts growling at us.”

Whiskers chuckled, patting his tummy and said, “I think my tummy is still digesting the second helping of apple pie I had last night!”

K. Pete, Raven and Ms. Murphy were at the table drinking coffee and checking their laptops. Pete was checking the weather and his sisters were checking the shelter cams. Whiskers pulled out a chair for Talley, meowing good morning to everyone.

Raven and Ms. Murphy were both smiling, happy to report the new Clowder kitties were all safe and warm in their beautiful new home. Raven said, “Scarps must have sensed we were watching the cams because he turned to wave at us and gave us the two paws up signal.”
Ms. Murphy nodded and said, “They have the fireplace burning in the common room and Myrna, Norma Rae and the girls are all having a wonderful time in their kitchen.”

K. Pete smiled and said, “I shudder at the thought of the Clowder kitties getting caught outside in this storm. I just pray now that all the forest animals have found shelter.”

Whiskers nodded and said, “When we take out the snow plows this morning, I’m afraid it might impossible to see anything in these white out conditions. Let’s hope this snowstorm isn’t as bad as the last one.”

Callie came from the kitchen carrying a tray of juice glasses. She said, “Drink up everyone! I made special healthy organic blend with pomegranates, black mulberries, red grapes, oranges, carrots, cranberries and blueberries. I call it Juice to the Power of Seven. Tee, hee! It’s nutritious and delicious.”

Everyone took a sip from their glasses and they were delighted. Whiskers smiled and said, “If this doesn’t make me healthy, nothing can!”

Ralph and Rosie did the honors of the breakfast chime this morning. Angel Maggie and Callie came from the kitchen, with Whitey and Orangie close behind, to set the food on the table. Whiskers sniffed the air and said, “Yum, it smells delicious.”
He started to reach for one of warming trays, but Callie tapped his paw lightly and said, “Not before grace brother.”

The family joined paws to give thanks for another blessed day together and a special prayer for any animal still out in the storm.

Angel Maggie and Callie uncovered the food so everyone could dig in themselves. Angel Maggie said, “We prepared cheesey scrambled eggs, buttermilk pancakes, bacon and a new breakfast sausage Phillip and Victoria wanted us to try. They’re called Maple Chicken Breakfast Sausages.”

Talley took a bit of the wolves new product and asked, “What are these made from? They are scrumptious!”
Angel Maggie smiled and said, “Victoria told us she used whole boneless chicken thighs, nutmeg, sage and the secret ingredient that gives them a sweet taste is their very own maple syrup and touch of brown sugar.”

Callie added, “Victoria said if we like the sausage, she’ll pack a few cases for our shelter furiends. Phillip hasn’t put them into production yet until he hears what we think.”

Since Whiskers mouth was full, he held his paws up for approval! Everyone did! The family enjoyed their wonderful meal. Just as they were beginning to discuss what needed to be done outside today, Talley reminded the family that Queen Mallow and Prince OJ were having a Mardi Gras celebration at the Castle. K. Pete had just cleaned his plate when he replied, “I think we’ll be able to make it to the Castle festivities today. After we make a few passes with the snow plows, we can let the shelter kitties know we’ll pick them up on our way to the Castle.”

Whiskers gave Talley a hug before he headed out the door with his brother. Talley slipped a woolen hat on top of Whisker’s head, telling him not to exert himself. Whiskers smiled at his beautiful wife and said, “Oh I won’t. I want to save my energy for us on the dance floor. I don’t want any Mardi Gras beads put around your pretty neck except mine!” Talley blushed and playfully pulled the woolen hat over Whisker’s eyes.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my precious Tallulah.

“My love for you knows no boundaries. You are the reason behind everything that is good in my life.”

janet and nat are serous
about wanting to come down and stay with your parents for sure!! sick and tired of storm after storm lately after storm! janet did say once we hit february that things likely would go down-hill and we'd get dumped upon and so far she's been right. just missing another storm, but we might get some snow showers today, but otherwise cloudy as one gets pulled to the south and out to sea dragging the the first cold front dropping us back down through the 20s thurs/fri and then the coldest air of the year so far going below 0 at night and lower to mid teens for daytime highs. janet knows she's NOT going to make it through cc today as they have errands after she gets in from work and if nat doesn't rake the roof this morning this afternoon it's going to have to be done and janet will be likely up on the ladder doing the gutters as they're packed with snow and ice so bashing more than likely too! angels,ab,haley no fun at all as the gutters are old and fal ling apart!

As they lay in bed cuddling, Talley was telling
Whiskers all about the delicious healthy Super Bowl food her Dad had prepared for the game and to celebrate her Aunt Barbara’s birthday. Whiskers smiled, shaking his head and said, “Your Dad is an amazing cook. I can see where all of you got your special culinary talents. Be sure to tell your Aunt happy birthday for me sweetheart.”

Talley asked, ”Did your pawrents celebrate the Super Bowl too?”
Whiskers sighed and said, “Well, my Mom had prepared several deli meats and salad platters, but at the last minute she decided not to go. She sent Dad off with the food. Mom still isn’t feeling too good and I know she’s worried about me. I actually felt like cuddling with my Mom yesterday, so we all spent the afternoon watching the Puppy and Kitten Bowls on TV. As it turned out, our Dad must have missed us because he came back home during halftime.”

Whiskers kissed the top of Talley’s pretty head and said, “I don’t want to think about my surgery any more. I’m looking forward to helping decorate the Clowder Kitties new home.”
Talley nodded her head happily. Whisker’s tummy rumbled, causing them to both laugh. Talley said, “We need to get some food in your tummy first my love.”
The two kitties in love jumped out of bed together, grateful for another blessed day.

Coming down the stairs Whiskers inhaled deeply and said, “I never get tired of the smell of breakfast in our home.”
Talley nodded and said, “The coffee smells delicious and I detect blueberry muffins in the air.”

The kitchen was buzzing with activity. Whitey and Orangie were merely supervising as Myrna, Norma Rae, Adele and Joanne moved expertly around the kitchen preparing strawberry crepes, crispy bacon and fresh baked blueberry muffins. Callie and Angel Maggie brought the delicious smelling French Roast coffee to the table, along with white-hot chocolate with whipped cream for the kids.

Scraps and the Clowder Kitties were already seated at the table, enjoying their warm drinks. Little Flash looked adorable after he took a sip of his hot chocolate and had a white mustache covering his face. Ebeneezer took a hankie from his pocket to wipe Flash’s face.
Scraps smiled and said, “We all slept wonderful again last night. It was hard to get to sleep though. We are all so excited about moving into our new home” The Clowder kitties all nodded happily.

Raven looked up from her laptop and said, “We should be getting a delivery any time now with everything we’ll need to finish decorating the kitchen and furnishing the bedrooms.”
Ms. Murphy nodded and said, “I just received a delivery notification. The truck should be here by the time we finish breakfast.” There was happy applause all around the table.

Pete smiled and said, “Mitch and the family will be over after breakfast. Everyone is ready to pitch to get the new home completed. We might even be able to have our first dinner in their new home with Scraps and his Clowder.

Scraps shook his head and said, “This all still really feels like a dream. I can’t tell you all enough how happy you’ve made us.”

Whitey poked her head from the kitchen, signaling to Flash it was time to ring the breakfast chime. Flash practically fell out of his chair with enthusiasm!

Once everyone was seated, they all joined paws to say grace and give thanks for another blessed together. The strawberry crepes stuffed with a delicate cream were delicious. Myrna, Norma Rae, Adele and Joanne were delighted at the accolades they received from the family.

K. Pete said, “The weather looks like it will be cooperating with us today, but it’s still quite chilly outside. Another snowstorm is expected to hit during the week. So today we’ll try to get as much done as we can, but I think we can do it.” K. Pete winked at Scraps who had a huge grin on his face.

After a wonderful meal, Whiskers and Talley helped clear the table, but Myrna insisted on letting her and the girls do the clean up. Whiskers told Talley, “I better change into something warm so I can help K. Pete and the guys load up trucks after the delivery gets here with all the goodies. You should dress warmly too my love. I think we’re in for another busy day.”

Talley took Whisker’s paw in hers as they walked back upstairs to their room. Whiskers paused to hold Talley tightly in his arms, breathing in her fresh, delicate scent. “I love you sweetheart,” he whispered.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my furever love.

“Between us is one thread: it tied our hearts so we walk close to each other always.”

It’s a quiet day around Mallow Castle. Outside in the sunshine Greenskeeper Mimi is finishin’ up the orchid vines that she has been plantin’ around the front of the Castle and Official ‘Nip Grower Kuzi is tending her patch of her very special variety, Mallow Yallow. Out back Prince OJ is tendin’ his still and K. Bennie is supervisin’ the giant shed that is quickly fillin’ up with empty beer cans for that special project I alluded to yesterday. Not much better time than Superbowl Sunday to start a beer can collection!

The rest of the family are getting settled in nicely. My little sis Mojo & her pal Zippy are enjoyin’ the Moj’s canopy bed .. those crazy kids are absolutely convinced it’s a bunk bed with a kitty hammock! Kitchen Manager Evie has everything organized and now that she’s got all the Superbowl dishes done, she has time to double – check her list of Guest Chefs and then have some quiet time with her hubby Angel Shai.

I am loungin’ around in the black & white striped PJ’s that the Hairballz brought me in honour of the Kitty Convict Project (and my crown of course), checkin’ thorough the week’s itinerary.

Tomorrow is Mardi Gras, and my Mardi Gras King (and Guest Chef) & I have a celebration ready for ya. And don’t worry, I didn’t forget Chinese New Year! But since they ain’t even havin’ the big parade in Vancouver till Sunday ~ and San Francisco’s is a whole week later ~ we’ll spread the pawties out a bit and celebrate it Friday. Evie reports that Guest Chefs Callie & Angel Maggie have a special feast planned for us.

Of course this all leads up to a major Valentine’s Day bash on Sunday the 14th, you’ll be hearin’ more about that later.

Today you’re invited to just hang out at Mallow Castle. Guest Chef Sammy has come by to check out the facilities and that has resulted in a couple of his famous chili crocks, so you can come & go & help yourselves.

Umm .. watch out for that obstruction at the main gates though. That is not a guard station, but K. Steve gettin’ his kissin’ booth set up for Valentine’s Day. Don’t say you weren’t warned, mol. ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

guess what?
we've got yet another nor'easter bearing down on us, makes the second since last friday when janet went into work thinking 1-3" totaled and no troubles getting home or what not, just very, very slow after taking a lot of time to clean off her car 30 minutes worth after she got out of work and 30 more mins to get home which usually only takes 15 minutes. janet's already call-ed in sick as she just didn't want to deal with having to clean the mess off her car even though it's now not supposed to be that bad till later on this morning when she was to have gotten out of work. at least she will get sick pay for today. got another coming in on saturday with 1-3" and the coldest air of the winter and highs only lower to mid teens for highs and wind chills well below zero as temps will match that for highs in the mornings below 0! if you don't see us blogging or online it's she's outside shoveling from 2-4;45 be fore breakfast and leaving for work more than likely tomorrow as well as saturday. at least a good amount of 5" we got on friday melted the past 3 days with temps into the mid to upper 40s which has been very nice. hoping to hear from you sooner if you get a chance and sorry we've not kept in touch, but once a friend goes off our first page then there's no time to do extra blogging. angels,ab,haley

Whiskers held his beautiful Talley tightly
in his arms as he softly sang a good morning song to her.
♬ Good morning
Good morning, love
It's my favorite love song
I waited all night long for morning

Good morning, love
Before we start the day, dear
I'm whispering in your ear
Good morning ♫

Talley smiled and lifted her head to kiss her husband good morning. Talley mewed, “I love it when you sing to me sweetheart. I’m always glad to see you happy.” Whiskers looked at Talley and said, “How could I not be happy waking up to the most beautiful, most wonderful wife in the whole world?!”

Whiskers gently stroked Talley’s soft fur. He said, “Thank you my love for all the love and support you’ve showered upon me. I have a good feeling about my upcoming surgery. My Mom has the upmost confidence in Dr. Natt and I know my Mom wouldn’t put me through something if it weren’t absolutely necessary.”
Talley nodded and said, “Yes sweetheart, we have to think positive. I just know you’re going to be all right.”
Whiskers smiled, brushing his lips on top of Talley’s pretty head. He chuckled and said, “I have a feeling my Mom is going to do enough worrying for all of us. She’s been reading everything she can on cystotomies. My Dad told her she shouldn’t do that, thinking it will just worry her more, but at least I know she’ll have a better understanding of the surgery. I’m not scared. I just want to be a healthy tom for my beautiful wife. You can’t get rid of me that easily!”
Whiskers tickled Talley with his paws until they both were laughing so hard, tears fell from their eyes.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my precious Talley.

The first time I saw you, my heart whispered “that’s the one.”♥

Are ya ready for some football??!

After that exciting shoppin’ cart race, I am ready to relax & chill out with my pals in front of the big screen. The thrills, the action, the excitement of cheerin’ my team on. So whaddaya think, can Boomers Bobcats beat the Northshore Bengals?

Oh yeah … there are some human teams playin’ today too, aren’t there?

You’re all invited to Mallow Castle for Superbowl 50! We’re puttin’ the finishing touches on a big Snack Stadium, prominently featurin’ blue corn chips and sweet potato dip for those Broncos fans out there, Carolina Pulled Pork Frito Bites for the Panthers fans, and lotsa football shaped ‘mallows from the Evie & Mallow Bakery. There’s also Orange Crush Cream Pie and our trusty bartender will be makin’ delicious blue Panther-itas.

And of course what would Super Bowl Sunday be without pizza? Today’s Guest Chef is K. Winston of the famous Winston’s Pizzeria, and the delivery truck should be showin’ up any minute with lotsa that special Winstons magic for us! I of course have ordered my favourite double onion, double garlic feta special, and there’s an assortment of Philly Cheesesteak, Buffalo Wing and Seafood pizzas too. Not to mention lotsa Winston bread with assorted dips.

And of course we have beer! Please save your empties for a top-secret project that’s comin’ up soon. We’re gonna need lots, so after the game a bunch of us Angels are gonna head over to the stadium and collect all the cans we can get our paws on. That should be a good start, mol.

Now let’s get started! It’s almost time for the pre-pre-PRE-game show! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Whiskers pulled his precious wife closer to him
and mewed, “I’m sorry my Mom missed the hockey games last night. She wasn’t feeling well and fell asleep with us all snuggled around her. Mom felt achy after we got home from the vet and tried to fight it off with Vit C drinks, but this morning she doesn’t feel any better. Mom says she is thankful she doesn’t have a cold, maybe just the flu. Since she had her flu shot months ago, she should be able to beat this virus off quickly.”

Whiskers smiled as he ran his paws gently through Talley’s soft fur. “My Mom still has not been able to get close enough to Scamper to run the microchip scanner over him, but she is getting closer to him. Mom put a heated cat bed in the garage, a litter box and some toys to see if maybe she can get Scamper that way. The garage was how Mom was able to get Whitey and Orangie.”

Whiskers leaned over to check his iPhone for any messages on his nightstand. Talley knew what he was waiting for and asked, “Any word from your Mom yet?”
Whiskers shook his head and said, “I guess Dr. Natt hasn’t gotten my test results yet. Mom will let us know as soon as she hears. As Callie always says, “A watched kettle never boils.”

Talley laughed and said, “Oh sweetheart, don’t worry about your test results. Let’s take a nice warm shower. I’ll scrub your back if you scrub mine; and we’ll have a lot of work to keep us occupied today with our new clowder furiends and the preparations of their new home.

After a relaxing shower together, Whiskers felt on top of the world with his kitty love. As he ran a brush through Talley’s soft fur, they both froze when they heard Whisker’s phone ringing. Whiskers took a deep breath before he answered it. It was his Mom with his test results.

Whiskers listened, and then thanked his Mom for calling him right away. Talley came to her husband’s side, sensing that something was wrong. Whiskers sighed and said, “I don’t want you to worry my love. We will get through this together. My test results are still showing blood in my urine. It went up slightly compared with my results two months ago. After a long talk with my vet, my Mom and Dr. Natt have decided the cystotomy needs to be done. The doctor feels I’m healthy enough right now, so better to get it done now than later. I’m scheduled for the surgery on February 18th. My Dad has that week off from work, and the doctor said waiting until then should be fine.”

Talley wrapped her arms around Whiskers tightly her husband and mewed, “We will get through this my love.”

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my beloved Queen Tallulah.

A crowd gathers at the next checkpoint, the very popular Win’s Pizzeria! Colt & Angel Shilo are ready with pots of Chili Catfish Gumbo and … here come the racers! Who’s ahead? It looks like ….

Team Pinto Island! The cart’s decorated in a tropical theme complete with palm trees, with A. K. Max and A. Q. Gracie dressed in their RC Cola and Moonpie outfits. K. Steve, Hot Rod & Mr.Sniff are pullin’ with all their might. Go kitties!!

Watch out, Team Pinto Island! Mischief and Dayzee are coming up behind with their Angels and doggie Molly (dressed as a Cheetah!) mushin’ for all they’re worth! K. Steve takes action, quickly chompin’ some Double Bubble and soon the other teams are in a pink sticky mess. Now was that nice?

White Squirrel Campground is the last checkpoint before the finish line! Kimber & A. Kaycee dish out gumbo while the teams race through! Princess JoJo & teammates in the hot pink cart are hampered by a wobbly wheel, but they are hangin’ in there & chuggin’ along!

Team Quincy is not to be underestimated even though her cart is bein’ pulled by tiny mice! Our future Queen mushes along, K. Leo by her side as she practices the Royal Wave while eatin’ micey creams. And the crowd goes wild!

The teams are nearin’ the finish line! Adorkable and Puzzle have been grillin’ while they wait, Puzzle fell asleep again and …. Well, there’s a lotta smoke in the air <koff! Koff!> Puzzle tries to blow it away by wavin’ the checkered flag …. Even though he’s not sure he’s even wavin’ it in the right direction! First across it’s K. Tuck with Mouse, Dot and Maizie in the cart that Mouse stayed up ALL night knittin’ a cover for! Very classy!

Second is Team Zoo Crew! Addin’ that little beagle of yours made the difference. And … whoa! Morgan won’t stop! She’s draggin’ the whole team straight to the Castle kitchen! Everyone bail out!

Team Georgia Peach is third with the help of Maggie Meme and her girlfriend’s two black labs. Once everyone has crossed the finish line, Queen MJ and King Angel Spike have more trophies:

Best decorated: Team Royals, Q. Lily, Q. A. Misty (with her Angel doggie Scruffy), Q. Zoe Monique and K. Spanky Jack, who have turned their shopping cart cart into a great big crown.

Runner-up best decorated: K. Sams, smokin’ hot with bright racin’ car flames.

Nicest team: Team S Sisters with Sienna, Sable and Angel Sakura dressed in Steampunk costumes & pulled by their neighbourhood doggie friends. They didn’t move too fast because they were gathering pet food, toys & treats for homeless cats & dogs! Well done ladies!

The Hairballz are here, and they volunteer to get the donations distributed and load all the carts up so we can truck ‘em back to the supermarkets!

Thanks, everyone! You kitties rock! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
I didn’t want you to worry love but we were at the vet longer than we thought we would be. The vet was busy with a lot of noisy dogs. I was hoping to let the vet take a urine sample from me, but once I was on the examining table, I couldn’t hold it any longer. (Sigh) So the vet gave me a diuretic injection and had to put me a cage with food and water. Thankfully my Mom sat there with me, reading your wonderful blog to me that she had printed out this morning. I love our new clowder and can hardly wait to see the new home the Angels are making for them.

After the vet took my urine sample, she told my Mom it looks good, but we’ll have the results tomorrow. I weighed in at 12.5 pounds, down from 13. Dr. Natt said my weight is still good. She doesn’t want me to lose any more weight though. Yay! More of your delicious apple pie for me!

I love you sweet Talley. I think a catnap sounds good right now as I watch my Mom catch up on my CC meows.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my precious Talley.

“My gratitude for having met you is surpassed only by my amazement at the joy you bring to my life.” ♥

Actually, so many kitties wanted to involve their canine pals that I’m invitin’ the NICE Kitties’ brother King Angel Spike from Dog Channel for a cross-Channels event. The race starts at King Spike’s Castle and runs through four checkpoints with the finish line at Mallow Castle.

Guest Chefs Colt, Winchester and Kimber are on hand as the kitties start to arrive, they have trays of their famous fudge, shaped into crowns and stars for the occasion. Very artisitic, ladies! No gobblin’, you doggies!

At the starting line waits Puzzle, curled up in his cozy cat bed with the green flag in his paw. When King Angel Spike announces the start of the race, Adorkable smacks Puzzle hard. He wakes up, waves the flag and …. THE RACE IS ON!!

An early lead is taken by Team Zoo Crew, with their big doggies Lokje and Jada dressed like cats and pullin’ hard while Sasha, Pique, KC and the kitties mush ‘em on! With an actual Malamute and Husky to pull ‘em, this team is gonna be hard to beat but Team NICE might just be able to pull it off! Trixie and Patches are mushin’ their sibs and the family dogs like experts!

Reachin’ the first checkpoint at the MHL Arena, Team Whiskers has surged ahead. Lookin’sharp in their Russian fur hats K. Whiskers, Callie, Orangie & Whitey have recruited some doggy friends they met on their stroller walks, promisin’ them gumbo and fudge for pullin’ the cart. Winchester & Angel Chyna are ready to make good on that promise. As the teams pass the checkpoint they receive mugs of Jambalaya Gumbo with mild or hot sauce to keep ‘em goin’ along the course.

For a while, Team Whiskers is neck in neck with Team Royal Squadron, where K. Pete is helpin’ Ms. Murphy & Raven pull a shoppin’ cart decorated to look like a plane, while Q. Talley hollers “mush!” and waves to her hubby as her team manages to pass his. “For now!” calls K. Whiskers with determination and promises the doggies more fudge.

Next checkpoint is the DC Dog Park where Commere and Tank are dishin’ out gumbo as fast as their paws can go! Here comes Team Georgia Peach, where Q. Gin Gin has decorated her cart with camellia blossoms and catnip sprigs and VI Kitties Crush, Cashmere and Cisco are pullin’ like mad, with some help from Gin Gin’s neighbour doggie.

Team Screamin’ Mimi was ready to start this mornin’ at first light, and they have been holdin’ their own ever since! Q. Mimi is dressed as a hula dancer complete with grass skirt as she mushes her brothers JC, Maxwell, Blackstone and Greyson along.

Ooops! I ran outta room … the race continues tomorrow! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

After Dr. Fluffy had finished her examinations
of the grateful clowder, Dr. Fluffy thanked Liliana, Nellie, Charlotte and Mickey for their help as very professional medical assistants. Dr. Fluffy told the kids, “Don’t forget what I told you about pursuing a career in the medical field. I would be more than happy to help get you started and I’d be proud to be the first reference on your applications to school. All of you have that special caring touch that is vital in becoming a successful healer.”

Liliana nodded her head excitedly, looking at Nellie, Charlotte and Mickey who all had enthusiastic grins on their tiny faces. The kids handed over all the notes to Dr. Fluffy they had acquired during her examinations.

Whiskers and Talley were watching the happy scene with pride when Whiskers felt his iPhone vibrating in his coat pocket. He read the message from his Mom and couldn’t help laughing. Talley kissed her Whiskers on his cheek and said, “What is it my love? Looks to be good news.”

Whiskers shook is head and said, “I’m not sure it’s the news my Mom was hoping for, but she sent me a text letting us know she caught someone in the humane animal trap that she had set out in hopes of getting Scamper. It turns out she caught a kitty all right, only it was Lola, the cute, little black cat that lives across the street! This has to be at least the third time Mom has trapped Lola.”

The family overheard Whiskers and there was laughter all around. K. Pete said, “What about Scamper? Did your Mom say he was nearby?”
Whiskers grinned and said, “Mom saw Scamper first when she came outside to see what was going on. Scamper was hiding under the car in the driveway, just looking on. What got my Mom’s attention to come outside to check on the trap, was the sound of birds chirping- a lot of birds! Mom said it sounded like a bird sanctuary in her front yard. Guess the birds were laughing at poor Lola in the cage!”

Scraps was listening intently when he raised his paw to speak. Whiskers said, “Oh Scraps, you don’t need to raise your paw to talk. We’re very informal around here. We’re family!
Scraps smiled and said, “I was just wondering, is your Mom a human?” The clowder gasped as they waited to hear Whiskers’ answer.

Whiskers smiled and said, “Yes my furiends, believe or not, there are quite a few nice humans out in the world who actually want to help us. My human Mom took my sisters and me into her home when my real cat Mom left us there. I like to believe my cat Mom left us there because she knew we would have a chance at a better life with the humans.”

Whiskers pulled Talley close to him and said, “Another wonderful example is my wife Talley. If it hadn’t been for her kind and loving human Dad Mike, she wouldn’t be here with us today.”
Whiskers choked back tears as he continued. “Talley was just a kitten, blinded from a serious eye infection, hungry, thirsty and very tired, wandering around, wondering what was to become of her. Talley found shelter in an empty home, too exhausted to go on. Thanks to the divine angels, specifically her fursister Angel Sylvie, Talley was found and rescued by a kind and caring human, soon to be her furever Dad. I guess what I’m trying to say is that not all humans are bad and sometimes we have to put our trust in the Lord.”

Scraps nodded and said, “We’ve only encountered a few humans who were kind to us. Most of the time, they seemed to not want to be bothered with us, often throwing things at us to scare us away. I would like to suggest to your Mom to be patient with Scamper. He sounds like a street-smart cat and rightly so. No one can know what Scamper has been through in order to survive. Tell your Mom we will all be praying for Scamper.”

Whiskers walked over to give Scraps a hug. He said, “Thank you Scraps. I will pass your wisdom along to my Mom. Knowing my Mom, she’ll do her best to make Scamper feel welcome.”

Norma Rae and Myrna were sitting by the warm fireplace, happily watching the kids play together, surrounded by toys and books that Flower and the family had bestowed upon them. Norma Rae shook her head and said, “We are truly blessed. I don’t think some of us would have been able to brave another winter storm.”

Scraps walked over to the window, unable to see anything in the white-out conditions. Scraps wiped a tear from his eye, “I always wanted to believe in Heaven, but sometimes when we all found ourselves cold and hungry, it got kind of hard to believe. I should have never doubted the existence of our dear Lord and the power of prayer.”

Talley put her paw on Scraps shoulder and mewed, “You are all safe with us now. Welcome to our family!”

All the kids jumped up and down excitedly. Whiskers looked on smiling, loving his precious Talley and their family more and more every day.

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

There is a kitty sweet and kind
Her gesture, motion, and her smiles,
Her wit, her voice my heart beguiles,
Beguiles my heart, I know not why,
And yet, I'll love her till I die.

❀ Mews from Mallow Castle ❀
Okay, today it’s time for a little service project. Oh, quit groanin’ I promise I will make this fun. See, February is Return Carts to the Supermarket Month and that’s a perfect opportunity for ….. an Urban Iditerod!

What is an Urban Iditerod, you may ask? Well, you’ve probably heard of the Alaskan Iditarod, where more than sixty dog sled teams race across the frozen tundra from Anchorage to Nome the first Saturday in March. In the urban version, teams of ‘dogs’ lead by a musher will pull their sleds (aka shopping carts) through an urban environment to the finish line

So let’s get busy! First we go around, collect all of the shoppin’ carts we can. Bonus if we find those ones that the humans hafta put money in, right? Then comes the fun. We get a buncha kitties together, dress up in goofy costumes, form teams with some suckers .... I mean friends ... to pull the shopping cart while one of us rides in it and the other steers & hollers "MUSH!" I kid you not, humans really truly do that.

The First Urban Iditarod was held in San Francisco in 1994. Traditionally the race is run the first Saturday in March along with the Alaskan version, but it does vary by city and since I am the Queen, I say February is the purrfect time do our CC Urban Iditerod.

As an incentive to run, we will have several ‘check points’ to replenish lost fluids and discuss tales of mayhem. At these check points our Guest Chefs du Jour, Angel Chyna and the Triplets, will have vats of A. Chyna’s famous gumbo. I hear they’re plannin’ on Jambalaya and Chili Catfish Gumbo. The Triplets, Colt, Winchester and Kimber, are makin’ some of their famous fudge. That’ll keep our energy up!

The course will be long and arduous, so dogs and mushers alike need to be ready and able to run their tails off. So gather your carts, gather your friends, decorate your carts and and get your crazy costumes ready, tomorrow mornin’ we race! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Oh sweetheart, I just finished reading “Ahead of the Storm” with my Mom and we could actually feel the chill in the air. The weather was ferocious and I was so relieved we were able to get our new furiends safely to our home. Whew! As soon as we get caught up with my CC blogs, I’ll be back to whisper sweet meows into your pretty ear. I didn’t forget hockey tonight my love. Mom is also getting ready for my trip to the vet this Friday. I saw her putting fresh blankets inside the cat carrier and I knew it was coming! You’ll be with me, right? I know you will be sweetie, so I’m not worried at all.

My Mom spent most the day with our friend Denise, from Alley Cat Allies. Scamper took off running as soon Denise came driving up. I know, Mom should have had her park down the street. Denise did see enough of Scamper to comment, “That is one large cat!” She left the microchip scanner with Mom, but Mom isn’t too confident that she’ll be able to get close enough to the big guy anytime soon. But, we’ll keep it for two days and give it a shot. Denise is coming back tonight with a new humane animal trapper for Mom to try. Mom’s animal trapper is 12 years old and looks it! Denise thinks Mom’s best chance at getting this furry guy is with a trap.

Denise asked my Mom what she wanted to do if Scamper does not have microchip? San Jose shelters are NOT no-kill, so of course Scamper can stay here. Alley Cat Allies will help pay for his initial neuter/vaccinations, once we do trap him, so that is nice to know. Denise thinks he’ll have a much better chance as a TNR rescue cat in our neighborhood than if she takes him to a local feral colony. He does have a warm cathouse, food and whatever love our Mom can give him.

I love you sweetheart. We saw the great pictures your Dad created for Quincy and her catpaign. Fabulous! Simply fabulous!

I just saw the beautiful Valentine’s profile picture you made for us! We do look purrfect together, don’t we my love?! The Beauty and the Beast!

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

❀ Mews from Mallow Castle ❀
Before I forget (like I did yesterday!) I have been getting’ a whole lotta compliments on my Queenly profile picture. K. Whiskers’ talented Mom made that awesome picture for me, ain’t it awesome? I think she really managed to capture the essence of Angel Mallow, Beneficent Ruler of the Universe! Um .. I mean, CC Queen of February. Getting’ ahead of myself there, mol.

I have some cool info for ya today ~~ Mom was flippin’ through the latest Catster magazine the other day when she saw somethin’ that goes paw in paw with my Lost & Found campaign. So today I thought I’d share with ya about somethin’ called the Kitty Convict Program.

Put the Royal Bail Fund away, Quincy, we don’t need it. Not for this one anyway. See, the Kitty Convict Program recognizes a problem, bein’ that of the over 7 million pets who go missin’ every year. 26% of dogs get back home, and not even 5% of cats.

Some of the reasons for this: Number One, more dogs wear collars with ID of some kind

Number Two: We felines are better at hidin’ than dogs are and for most of us, hidin’ is our first line of defense – by the way, statistics say that 2/3 of missin’ kitties who are found are found within 4 – 5 houses of where they live. Kitties in my campaign stories are the rare exceptions!

And now, the third reason kitties have a lower return rate: Think about it, when humans see a canine runnin’ around outside, first thing they do is look for a human nearby and if they don’t see one they say “Hey! That doggie must be lost!” But when people see a feline outside, they just say “oh look, a kitty” and don’t think much more of it. They just figure a kitty outside is .. well, a kitty outside! So the ones who do have someone lookin’ for them can miss an important chance to get help getting’ back home!

The Kitty Convict Project humans thought about all this and came up with a bright idea. Literally. They are encouragin’ all indoor kitties to wear orange collars with their ID tag. Why orange? Well for one thing, it’s bright and easy to notice. AND most importantly, because convicts wear orange their mission is to make the colour of “convict orange” an easily recognizable symbol of indoor cats. It lets people know that if they see a kitty outside who is wearin’ an orange collar, that kitty might actually be an “escapee” who needs help getting’ home.

Whether you like it or don’t, we gotta give these humans credit for creative thinkin’! To find out more, you can visit Just thought I’d pass it on ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Whiskers, K. Pete, Mitch, Gato and Teddy
unloaded the last of the extra shelter supplies. Inky, Bobby, Storm, Thomas, Eli, Paulie and Bumper met up with the guys to go over their checklists. All their hard work had proved to be a success. The shelters were ready and waiting for the new guests.

Talley and the girls had filled the shelters with plenty of warm blankets, packed the closets with warm clothes in an array of different sizes and boxes galore, stuffed with toys and books for the kids.

Callie and Angel Maggie had a large pot of chicken barley vegetable soup simmering on the stove with bread baking in the oven. Whitey and Orangie brought hot chocolate to the table to warm everyone’s paws and tummies. The wind had started to really pick up outside and even though the sun was shining, the temperature was dropping rapidly.

Raven was checking the shelter cams when there was a knock on the door. Whiskers jumped up to welcome Oliver inside. Oliver shook off his wings before coming inside and said, “ Wow! It’s getting chilly out there. I just came back from my aerial flight check over the village and it looks like our new furiends have begun the journey to our shelters.”

Oliver looked at K. Pete and said, “I wasn’t sure if and when our furiends might be coming. I think there was some apprehension amongst some of the elder animals. I’m sure we can all understand their unease about coming to a new home. I thought it might be a good idea if you guys could take a ride into town and offer them a ride to our humble paradise. It is getting awfully cold.”

K. Pete jumped up and said, “Say no more Oliver. Gato, you and Mitch can take both your trucks. Whiskers and Talley, take the Audi and Thomas and I will drive the Nissan NV.”
K. Pete looked at Angel Maggie and Callie and said, “Do we have enough food for our new furiends?”
Angel Maggie waved her wings, giving her brother a big hug. “Have you ever known Callie and I not to have enough food prepared? Go brother! We don’t want our furiends to freeze!”

Inky said to Pete, “Bobby, Storm and I will make sure all the shelters have enough firewood. If you guys need an extra vehicle to carry passengers, just give us a call. We’ll all have our cell phones close by.”

Teddy got up wanting to lend a paw. K. Pete smiled and said, “Teddy, I’d like you and Bumper to help Eli, Paulie and Joe gather some extra fruits and vegetables from the green house. I have a feeling we’re going to have a full house tonight. And don’t forget Teddy, Dr. Fluffy wants you to take it a little easy. You don’t want to have a relapse.”
Joanne stepped up, putting her arms around Teddy and said to K. Pete, “Thank you dear K. Pete. I’m keeping a close eye on my hard working, but stubborn husband.”
Teddy started to frown, but it quickly turned into a smile when he felt his beloved wife’s arms around him.

Flower had already assembled the kids in the living room, going over his plan to create and set up welcome banners in the house, complete with balloons and small house warming gifts for everyone. Flower had all the kids giddy with excitement and ready to work. They wanted this to be a happy day for their new furiends!

Everyone was out the door in a flash. Whiskers warmed the Audi while Talley ran back to their room to grab their jackets. You couldn’t tell just how chilly it was outside until you actually stepped out the door. Whiskers had the car heater on high. He jumped out of the car to open the door for his beautiful wife and take the jackets she had brought. Planting a warm kiss on her sweet cheek before shutting the door, Whiskers looked with curiosity at the big bundle of jackets in his arms. He put them in the trunk, then jumped back in to the car.
As they started to drive off, following K. Pete in the lead, Whiskers asked, “Why so many jackets my love?”
Talley rubbed her paws together for warmth and said, “I brought extra jackets just in case. I can’t imagine any family out walking in this cold weather and I hope I’m wrong, but I doubt they have warm clothes of their own.”

Whiskers smiled and couldn’t resist leaning over to kiss his precious wife. He really was the luckiest tom in the world!

Sending soft kisses and warm purrs to my beautiful wife, Queen Talley.

I look at you and think what I’ve done to be so lucky,
I used to wonder alone but now I’m in your arms,
I love the way your lips touch mine and how we intertwine,
I am yours and you are mine, I wouldn't change a thing,
You are my life, you are my soul, I never want to be alone without you by my side.

❀ Mews from Mallow Castle ❀
Rise & shine, kitties, it’s Groundhog Day! Or as they say in Quebec, Jour de la Marmotte. Oh, the suspense! Will good ol’ Punxsutawney Phil and his many counterparts emerge from their burrow to tell us that spring is on the way, or are we in for six more weeks of winter? I hear that there may be some kitties around who are takin’ bets on this, though I my Angelic self would not know anything about such activities!

You’re all invited to Mallow Castle to watch the results come in from across the continent while enjoyin’ a ‘Mallow Tastin’ Pawty. See, you may not know that I happen to own substantial stock in a little enterprise outta Mississauga Ontario known as the Evie & Mallow Bakery (absolutely a for real place!) and we have brought in a generous assortment of their fine product for the occasion.

Angel Q. Gracie’s earth sibs Jeeves, Cadbury and Mr. Belvedere, collectively known as The Butlers, have accepted the appointment as official Mallow Castle Butlers. They are all wearin’ their finest black & white tuxedoes and are ready to buttle for us today, carryin’ trays of delicious gourmet ‘mallows: Merlot Mallows, Lemon Meringue, Tutti Frutti, Mochaccino, even Peanut Butter & Chocolate.

And of course, before the day is through there will be a special Royal screenin’ of that fine film “Groundhog Day”.

Psst … rumour has it that some of our CC Angels are ready to follow the sun this mornin’ and discreetly provide shade to guarantee that those pesky rodents won’t be seein’ their shadows. Think that counts as cheatin’? ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Whiskers turned over to his side in bed,
very softly so as not to wake his beautiful wife, but he wasn’t able to stifle a groan when he did. Talley opened her eyes and sat up quickly. “What’s wrong sweetheart?! Are you all right?”
Whiskers smiled, pulling Talley back down into his arms and said, “I’m sorry my love. I guess all the dancing we did we yesterday, did a number on my old bones.”

Talley looked relieved when she realized Whiskers was okay. She snuggled deep into his furry chest and mewed, “I told you not to join K. Steve in that crazy ‘stump-rump’ dance.” Talley giggled and said, “You did look awfully cute on the dance floor though. I’ll never understand what comes over you toms at pawties. Later today, I want us to sit in the jacuzzi. The warm water will do wonders for your body sweetheart. I’ll even give your paws a massage afterwards.”
“Ummm,” Whiskers mewed. “That sounds wonderful. I did have a great time though. I’m always on top of the world when I have the prettiest kitty by my side at these royal gala events.”
Talley kissed her beloved husband on top of his head and said, “It was an exciting Coronation yesterday, wasn’t it? I knew the very minute when the entire Coronation flight went so smoothly, that everything else would fall into place.”

Whiskers nodded and said, “It got a little bit dicey there when the CC internet connection was down. Leave it to that incredible Queen Angel Mallow to always make a grand event, even grander.”

Whiskers jumped out of bed to get his lovely wife her slippers and robe. The bedroom was warm and toasty, but outside their window, it looked frightfully cold.
As he gently put Talley’s slippers onto her tiny paws, he said, “I’m glad Teddy and his family got to see their first Coronation. I hope all the excitement didn’t set Teddy’s health back.”
Talley shook her head and said, “I don’t think so. Mitch and Pearl made sure to get Teddy and his family back home right after the Coronation. He wasn’t out there at the after-pawty doing the stump-rump!”
With a sheepish grin on his face, Whiskers kissed Talley’s paw and said, “I couldn’t help myself sweetheart. Seeing you in your gorgeous gown, and knowing you are my precious wife; well it always sends me into a tizzy. You make me feel like a kitten all over again!”
“Oh Whiskers,” Talley mewed. The two kitties in love embraced, happy to be in love and happy to together furever.

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

Falling In Love
Everytime I look into your eyes, my heart smiles
Everytime you look so good, it hurts sometimes

When you sit next to me, my voice goes weak
When you touch me, I feel as if that's the way its supposed to be

I think you might be a gift from above
I think I might be falling in love

❀ Mews from Mallow Castle ❀
I wanna thank everyone once again for supportin’ me in my campaign, I really had a great time tellin’ you stories and now we are gonna have a blast at the Castle.

Speakin’ of the Castle, you might notice a few changes. It so happens there is an honest-to-goodness real Castle in County Cork Ireland called Mallow Castle … in fact, there’s actually two of ‘em. With that many, they won’t miss one for a month, will they? Angel K. Pushkin knows a kitty who knows a kitty, so we have arranged to have Mallow Castle shipped over to CC-land brick by brick and reassembled by Angel power. It should be done right about … oh, NOW! Welcome to my humble abode, there’s a picture down in my gallery!

Boy, what a claw-biter yesterday! I had plans to get all my final campaign blogs out early and then … CC was DOWN!! All morning! Well, I was not gonna put up with that, I got busy and had some words with the fleas & gremlins but they swore they had nothin’ to do with it this time. Well, they were right. Turns out this time it was those Irish Angels who were workin’ on my Mallow Castle construction project. See, some of ‘em brought their European power tools along and when they plugged ‘em in to the North American sockets … lights out. But we managed to get CC back up with 15 minutes to spare till the coronation was supposedta start. Do I know how to make an entrance or what? See I told ya, Nobody messes with the Mallow!

~ Now, for some Royal appointments ~

My handsome hubs Sir Oscar Jon will of course be my Prince Consort. My pal Kuzi is Official ‘Nip Grower By Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen and, since who knows what kinda shenanigans we might find ourselves up to this month, our February candidate Quincy will be Keeper of the Royal Bail Money. Just in case (wink). Q. Mimi will be my Royal Greenskeeper and we have somethin’ fun planned with that later on!

Since my sister Evie usedta live with Big Sis Becky in Calgary when Becky was goin’ to Chef school, I appoint her to be my Royal Kitchen Manager. For our events this month she has co-ordinated some very special Guest Chefs, so that we can showcase a few of our talented kitties and have lotsa good eats.

We’re kinda informal here around Mallow Castle, and since bein’ Mrs. Mallow Jon makes me & the hubs known as “OJ & MJ”, you can just call me “Queen MJ”

Lookin’ forward to a rockin’ great time! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

January 31 ~ Angel Mallow's last word ~
Wow, the last day of my campaign is here! It looked for a while there like the CC Gremlins were gonna try and keep me off the Throne, not to mention from postin’ my final campaign blog, but we pulled it off! Whew! I was gonna do a wrap-up speech today, but then I realized I just might have one last Lost & Found story to tell. It’s about our Angel Smokey and the second time Big Bro Joe saved his life.

One day when Smokey was about 10, he didn’t come in for supper. Which was unusual. And he wasn’t there in the mornin’, either. OR when the kids got home from school.

The kids and the pawrents looked all over, Mom dismantled the woodpile in the back yard, they checked the shed to make sure he didn’t get locked in and checked every hidin’ place they could think of. They walked around the neighbourhood but no sign of Smokey. Everyone was worried, but Big Bro Joe was a young man on a mission! As soon as he came home from school, never mind playin’ or watchin’ TV, he was out lookin’ for his Smokey!

The third day, Joe came runnin’ into the house “I found Smokey!” Mom went out and sure enough there he was, tucked into a little cubby that the humans didn’t even realize existed, where two sections of fence overlapped right at the end of the neighbours’ hedge. Smokey wasn’t stuck, he could come out
by himself but wouldn’t. When Mom reached to touch him, he growled at her! So Dad came out with his big coat and leather gloves, Mom held a baby quilt while Dad reached into the cubby & pulled out Smokey, who still had some fight in him but not very much. Dad plopped Smokey into the blanket, Mom wrapped him up tight and they were off to the vet.

Turned out that Smokey had a really nasty abscess and needed surgery right away. Poor guy had crawled into that little hidey spot to be safe while he sat at the foot of the Rainbow Bridge and waited for the Angels. But thanks to Big Bro Joe it wasn’t time for that yet.

After Smokey did cross and I came to live with the family, one of the things he came back to teach me was that if ya don’t feel right, stick close to the humans. And I listened.

I wanna take this time to say thanks to all of you who have come along on my campaign with me. Thanks for the comments, the support, the laughs, the goodies and of course the votes. I have some fun things planned for my time in the Castle in February, and I hope you’ll enjoy ‘em.

Let’s all give a round of thanks to King Miles for his great reign as King of January!

Come tomorrow: It’s a Marshmallow World!!

Whiskers clicked off their bedside lamp
pulling Talley gently into his arms. He smiled as he yawned and said, "I just had to read your Dad's preview of Queen Angel Mallow's Coronation Flight before I went to sleep. Your Dad and K. Pete never cease to amaze me and my Mom. I'm almost too excited to sleep, but I think I'll try. I know my dreams will be of the incredible Coronation flight tomorrow. Let's say a prayer for your Dad to feel better soon. Good night my precious love. "
