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

CAHW The Center for Animal Health and Welfare
Formed in 1913, CAHW, formerly the Northampton County SPCA, is a private organization. We are not affiliated with any other SPCA or ASPCA. We are not a government agency, but are a non-profit organization with a 501c3 status. In 2003 we committed ourselves to saving lives & became a no-kill shelter. We are dedicated to providing a safe & healthy environment for animals. We have improved our foster program, increased adoptions & offer a low-cost S/N program.
Fund raising, donations & bequests make up 90% of our income & we apply for many grants. Adoption fees, relinquishment fees, memberships & agreements with some of the local municipalities, to take in their strays, generate the rest of our revenue. Although we greatly appreciate the help from the municipalities that do support us, not all do. Northampton County contributes about $5,000.
We are responsible for a $900,000 operating budget annually. Our major costs are: Veterinary care, Medical supplies, Kennel supplies, S/N expenses, Insurance, Utilities, & Payroll.
Adoption: We make every effort to find loving homes for these scared & lonely pets. We do not set a fixed time limit on animals, but keep them for as long as they remain adoptable.
Lost & Found Services: Each year, hundreds of anxious owners visit our shelter, fill out reports, & are soon reunited with their lost pets.
Reducing the Tragic Overpopulation of Pets: The sad truth is that there are far more animals than there are loving homes for them. We conduct an ongoing campaign to encourage the neutering of all pets. With the cooperation of local veterinarians, we fund a low-cost pet S/N program.
Sadly, as a last resort, we do euthanize animals who are too sick or have aggression issues & cannot safely be placed in a home. We never euthanize an animal because of lack of space. We do not, under any circumstances, send any animal to laboratories for experimental use.
Humane Education: Through schools & community groups, we teach compassion & respect for all animals, as well as the responsibility of pet ownership, pet care, training, health & the importance of neutering.
This is the shelter where Mom adopted Angel Ricky & I on 1/30/05. Angel Ricky developed FIP and crossed five months later & Mom adopted Angel Anderson on 8/25/05. He crossed the RBB on 6/19/14. Legend was adopted 8/23/14. Mom has volunteered at the CAHW since 2005.
Thanks very much for your support. Voted. Prayers 4 all in need. Peace & love. Kitty Kisses. King Dean

CHK The Cat House on the Kings
CHK is CA's largest no-cage, no-kill, lifetime cat sanctuary & adoption center. Our mission is to place rescued cats & kittens into loving, permanent homes; to provide a safe, happy & healthy home for unwanted cats & kittens in a unique, no-cage facility; to prevent pet overpopulation through S/N; & to educate the public about responsible pet ownership. CHK is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, receives no government or public funding, & relies entirely on donations from the public to carry out its mission.
Founded 23 years ago by Lynea Lattanzio, CHK has saved over 24,000 cats & 7,000 dogs (not counting the 40,000 animals we have S/N) & currently cares for more than 700 cats & kittens, a dozen or so dogs & a handful of peacocks. Our mission is to: provide a no-cage, no-kill sanctuary for feral & abandoned cats & kittens for the CA, primarily serving the Central Valley; facilitate the adoption of cats (primarily), dogs & other rescued animals into safe, loving, healthy & permanent homes; educate the public on how to become directly involved in improving the quality of animal welfare; offer low cost S/N referrals. In 2002 CHK achieved non-profit status. In 2003, Lynea, with more volunteers & money, continued to expand CHK & added an area dedicated to the care of FIV+ cats. By 2004, CHK population had grown to over 500 cats & kittens.
CHK offers a variety of services:
Advice & Education: We offer assistance & education in behavioral problems with cats & assist people in finding new homes for their cats. We also advise thousands of people from around the world who contact us through our website & at our local, public events about all manner of cat issues.
Adoption Center: All of our cats are available for adoption. We do our utmost to find the best possible homes for our cats; none are euthanized except to relieve suffering. The cats live out their lives in our sanctuary until they are either adopted or die of old age — however long that may be. Every year, CHK adopts out approximately 500 cats ( & some dogs).
Sanctuary: We care for over 700 unwanted cats & kittens. Individuals surrender cats to us for a fee of $5000 per cat to provide lifetime support & care. Every cat is given necessary medical care, & is S/N & vaccinated. They are placed in cottages to become familiar with their surroundings. Once they're comfortable with their new digs, they are released onto the sanctuary grounds, & can roam about at will. The grounds are fully fenced & secure.
Low cost S/N: CHK works with local veterinary clinics to provide affordable rates for S/N surgery. We also provide transport between CHK & the surgery clinic.
GuideStar awards 5 of 5 stars, no results from Charity Navigator or BB Wise Giving. Thanks very much for your support. Prayers 4 all in need. Voted. Kitty Kisses. King Dean

SAINTS Senior Animals in Need Today Society
SAINTS was started in December 2004 after volunteers at other animal shelters saw many senior animals spending their last days in a shelter or pound. From the time we opened our doors, the number of animals in need has been astounding & ever-growing. When SAINTS moved into it’s first location it started with 16 cats, 12 dogs & 2 rabbits. SAINTS has since found it’s permanent home on 3 beautiful acres in Mission, BC with a warm & cozy home, a sturdy & well constructed barn, several outbuildings just waiting to be renovated for future use plus fields to play in & a pond to swim in… we have found a little bit of heaven on earth for our very special friends.
SAINTS has had over 765 animals come in through it’s doors. Over 280 have been adopted into wonderful loving homes. 320 have passed away in loving care at SAINTS & the remaining 112 still call SAINTS their home. We currently have 47 Saints in permanent foster homes. We are an end-of-life sanctuary for senior & special needs animals that have nowhere else to go. We provide a special place to be loved, cherished, & receive proper medical care for the rest of their days. All animals deserve to have hope for a better tomorrow. We pledge to love them, to care for them, & make their dreams come true. We promise each of them that they will never be alone again.
At various shelters throughout B.C., dedicated staff
& volunteers work tirelessly to find these special
animals a place to finish their journey in comfort &
in love. Because of their infirmities & physical challenges, many homeless senior & special needs animals have very little chance of finding a new home. SAINTS exists to help senior & special needs animals when all else fails. If we can, in time, find them a special home
of their own, then we do. If that very special home
never comes, they will be safe & cherished until the
end of their days.
Most of the animals that arrive at SAINTS are from
local animal shelters that didn’t have space for them
in their shelter as most SAINTS animals are seniors
or special needs & would have a hard time getting
adopted from a shelter. Other animals that come to
SAINTS are owner surrendered most often from senior
citizens who, due to health concerns, are no longer
able to care for their animals. Sometimes these animals
lose their homes when their senior caregiver passes away.
When an animal is brought to SAINTS it is assessed
as to the possibility of either adoption to a permanent
home, remaining a lifelong sanctuary animals or supportive care in a permanent foster home. This is determined by their level of care required, any existing health conditions or any that develop while in care.
All of our funding is raised through volunteer-driven
fundraising events or through private donations from
our supporters. No report from any of the charity watchdog groups. Thanks for your support. Prayers 4 all in need. Voted. Kitty Kisses. King Dean

Witnessing the family reunion of Raphael,
Magda and Petra with their father had the entire family in tears -tears of happiness. Callie had her arms around Angel Maggie, remembering the glorious moment when Angel Maggie came back to the family. Callie had never known such happiness. The saddest day of her life was when K. Pete told the family that Maggie had become an Angel. Callie was sure her heart had been ripped out and she would never be able to go on. Callie thought back on the day when she was numb with grief. It still seemed like only yesterday...
(March 7, 2013) “Callie got up early before the morning sun had risen, numb with grief. She slipped on her jacket and took the leather box filled with recipes that Talley had given her. It belonged to Angel Maggie, but Talley had given it to Callie, saying Maggie would have wanted it to be hers. Callie walked outside quietly, feeling the cold morning air on her face, as she clutched the leather box to her breast. Sitting down on the porch, Callie started to cry. "I'm sorry I am crying dear Maggie, but I miss you so much. You made me so happy and honored to be your best furiend. What will I ever do without you?" Callie sat in the dark, shivering from the cold and looking up at the sky through the tears in her eyes. She suddenly felt a warmness envelope her and she knew it was Angel Maggie. Callie listened with her heart and heard Maggie tell her to be strong for the family, especially her beloved Dad. Angel Maggie told Callie she would always be with all of them if they would just listen with their hearts. Callie looked up into the sky and saw a bright star shining. She knew it was Angel Maggie. Angel Maggie would always be with Callie until one day Callie too would cross over the Rainbow Bridge and finally be reunited with her best furiend. Callie said a silent prayer to God, asking him to look after her best furiend. She got up from the porch, holding her precious leather box tightly, and walked back into the quiet house.

Whiskers & Talley were in the kitchen making coffee when Callie came in. Not a word was said as the three kitties came together to hug one another. Angel Maggie was in Heaven now and she would want us all to go on and to especially look after her Dad. His pain was the deepest of all and it would take some time before it got any easier. "Angel Maggie loved her Dad and this family more than anything else in the world. We all have to stay together and keep her memory alive," Whiskers whispered to his two best girls. "I saw on CC that Angel Maggie was voted as ACOTD. She touched the lives of so many of us. We should feel privileged to have been a part of her long and very happy life."

Whiskers continued, "I will make us all a light breakfast. The sun is starting to rise and we have to face the day with reverence for Angel Maggie." Callie said, "I understand sweet brother, but let me cook this morning. I can do it. I will always have Angel Maggie helping me. She is forever in my heart and soul."

Whiskers hugged his dear fursister, put his arm around Talley as the two kitties in love walked back out to the living room. "Lean on me sweet Talley. I wish I could take away the pain, but I am always here for you. Never forget that." Whiskers kissed Talley deeply.”
Callie would share her story with Belinda and her precious family someday soon. Right now, seeing the happiness unfold before her eyes warmed her heart and soul beyond belief.

Belinda was practically glowing like an angel, her joy emanating from her body. Whiskers had his arms wrapped around Talley as they watched. He gently kissed Talley on top of her pretty head, never surprised but always amazed at the kind acts this family bestowed onto others.

It was delightful to watch Angel Joe eat his breakfast of steak and eggs. Joe laughed boisterously and said, “To tell you the truth, my body didn’t really feel hunger after I crossed the bridge, but the smell of the delicious food in this house is enough to awaken the senses of God’s entire Kingdom!”
Callie, Angel Maggie, Pearl, Annabella and all the talented chefs held up their paws to high paw the most wonderful compliment ever received in regards to their cooking.

Belinda couldn’t restrain herself from hugging her husband Joe. She had to convince herself every few minutes, this wasn’t all just an incredible dream.
Whiskers whispered to Belinda, “I know exactly how you feel. I often have to pinch myself during the day so I know I’m not just dreaming.”
Belinda smiled at Whiskers knowingly, but never taking her arms away from her husband.

Whiskers said, “Okay, I know we all want to go visit the Community Arts and Crafts Market today. This will be a great time to introduce Angel Joe to all our furiends. Flower, do you think you and the kids can wait until later this afternoon to fly your drones? We should get back in plenty of time with enough sunlight to get the detailed photos of the area for the new shelter guides you kids are putting together. That way we can all assist.”
Flower looked at his fursibs whom were all nodding their approval. Flower hugged his Uncle Angel Joe and said, “We’re so happy you are part of our family. We want you to meet all our furiends.”

Whiskers and Talley insisted on kitchen clean up this morning, giving the family time to prepare for a big day. After Whiskers finished drying the dishes and helping Talley wipe the kitchen counters, he took Talley into his arms. “My Mom will be leaving for GM’s house in the early morning. My love meows to you may be silent, but you do know that I’ll have you in my every thoughts and dreams, right?” Talley nodded her pretty head sadly. “Let’s promise to look at the moon each night and know we are together. It may not be physical, but we’re always together in our hearts and souls. I love you sweet Talley...Your Whiskers furever and ever

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

The Queen of My Heart ♥
I’ll be the warrior to fight for our love;
We’ll fly together, fly higher than the dove.
I’ll be your wall and shield you from danger;
I’ll take all the pains, for to me they are no stranger.

You’ll be the Queen in the kingdom of my heart;
And then I’ll be the King, so we’ll never be apart.
You’ll be my majesty-I will serve you forever;
And for all of time, I will leave you never.

Whiskers and Talley followed Gato out
to the workshop to see the finished jewelry chest Gato had been working so hard on. Gato was carrying a beautiful red velvet satchel that Cleo had sewn for him to place the jewelry box in. He checked to make sure the jewelry chest would fit inside. It fit purrfectly! The beautiful wood had almost a mirrored shine to it. Whiskers opened the drawers one by one, admiring the soft felt lining inside.
Whiskers smiled and said to Gato, “This is a work of art my furiend. I can feel the love it was made with, radiating all around. I can hardly wait to see the jewelry pieces that Esmeralda has to show you.”
Talley smiled as she gently ran her paws over the chest. Tears filled her eyes as she mewed, “Tuna is a lucky kitty. I’m so happy you both found each other. I know you and Tuna and her sweet furmily will be just as happy as Whiskers and I are.”

Gato was beaming when he asked Whiskers, “How did you and Talley get together? I’ll bet it was easy for a handsome Tom like you to win the love of such a wonderful kitty.”
Whiskers laughed and said, “Handsome is not an adjective I would use to describe myself. But I had high hopes. I was furiends with her brother K. Pete at first. When he introduced me to his family, the sight of Talley took my breath away. I never dreamed for even a second that she would even notice me. Thanks to my sister Callie and a dear furiend K. Thundie, I was encouraged to reach for the stars. And now I thank God every day for giving me the courage to profess my love to Talley. It was the beginning of a wonderful new life for me and my family.”
Whiskers paused to give his beautiful wife a soft kiss. Whiskers looked at Gato and said, “I’ll never understand how I was lucky enough to win the love of such a wonderful kitty, but it happened, and I’m a believer that all dreams are pawsible.”
Talley blushed as Whiskers held her in his arms.
Whiskers told Gato, “Now you can understand why I was ready to fight you so violently to protect my precious love. Talley is my world and I have a feeling you feel the same way about Tuna.”

Gato nodded sadly and said, “I’ll never be able to forgive myself for trying to hurt your family, but I’ll devote the rest of my life trying to make it up to all of you.”
Talley held out her paw to Gato and mewed, “You already have sweet Gato."

Whiskers stood up and said, “Let’s take a ride into the village to see Esmeralda. I can’t wait to see how you handle driving your new Frontier truck. Talley and I can help you select the purrfect piece of jewelry for Tuna;

although I have to warn you Gato. every time I buy jewelry for my Talley and I think I’ve found the most beautiful piece in the always pales in comparison to the beauty of my wife when I put it on her. But I still love trying and I think Talley appreciates my efforts!”
Talley nodded her pretty head emphatically as she gingerly held the diamond heart necklace around her neck with her paws.

Whiskers said, “Let’s get our jackets because the weather looks chilly outside. Gato, we’ll meet you in the front.” Gato jumped up, excited to be driving his new truck and happy that his furiends would be helping him select the purrfect gift of his kitty love Tuna. Gato thought to himself, “This love stuff is complicated, but it sure makes my heart sing!”

Gato drove this new truck like a pro. Whiskers and Talley couldn’t have been happier for their dear furiend. Gato parked carefully in front of Esmeralda’s Antique Shop, pausing to wipe the hood of his Frontier with a chamois cloth he kept in his pocket. Esmeralda welcomed her furiends inside, as Mitzi and Amy ushered them to a table with tea and cookies waiting.
After Esmeralda poured the tea, she asked Gato, “Did you have a chance to look at the pictures of the pieces that I thought Tuna might like? My purrsonal favorite was the 14k gold and enamel sitting Calico Cat, with the diamond collar and emerald eyes. The jewels are of the highest quality and the piece is hand painted, making it one-of-a-kind. The lovely Calico Cat reminded me so much of Tuna and I think it would look divine around her neck. Here, let me show it to you.”
Esmeralda brought the necklace to the table, wrapped in a soft velvet cloth. She said, “The artist used epoxy enamel and 14k gold to capture the detail in the piece and this particular process is not prone to chipping as in many ceramic enamel pieces.”
Gato held the necklace gently in his paw and said, “It’s absolutely beautiful. I look at it and see my Tuna. Oh please Esmeralda, tell me something so precious is in my price range. I could always put in on lay-away and promise to pay you as soon as possible.”
Esmeralda smiled, delighted that Gato liked the piece she had selected. She shook her head, refilling everyone’s teacups and said, “I was able to procure the necklace from an old furiend of mine, who’s retired and creates his artwork only for fun now. How about I charge you for the gold chain that I added; one that I thought would fit Tuna nicely, and we’ll call it a sale? Of course I’ll be happy to gift wrap for no charge.”
Gato practically dropped his teacup, stumbling to get up and give Esmeralda a big hug. He embraced his generous furiend and said, “Oh Esmeralda, any thing I can do for you, please don’t hesitate to ask! I am eternally grateful to you. And no, I don’t’ need it gift wrapped.”

Gato quickly took out his phone to show Esmeralda a picture of the jewelry chest that Flower and the family had helped him create for his special kitty. Esmeralda nodded and said, “Gato, you are quite the dashing and debonair Tom; just what we all hoped for our beloved Tuna.”
Gato hugged Esmeralda once more and shyly mewed, “Do you think you could show me some of those lovely engagement rings that you sent me pictures of? I can’t afford them right now, but I’m certainly ready to shop for one!

Whiskers squeezed Talley’s paw as he looked carefully at the lovely jewels Esmeralda was showing Gato. Christmas was right around the corner and their second wedding anniversary was coming up too. How time flies when you’re in love with the most wonderful kitty in the world.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my precious Talley.

Thinking of you is easy; I do it every day.
Missing you is the heartache that never goes away.

Mom~Lillian here to xplain what happened to TEAKEE #25544! Thank you for your Condolences, Sympathies, Poems, E-mails & Gifts! They are all so much appreciated!

TEAKEE was helped with her unXpected Forever Sleep at 4:30pm on Wednesday, November 18, 2015.

Every night about 10:30 I go in the GIRLS’ (Teakee; Sausha; Kittzi & Sylvr Tuff) room to feed them their dry food. TEAKEE reluctantly ate a couple kibbles and quit. Breakfast came about 7:00am Wednesday and had no interest in eating so I withheld her Dasuquin and told her it’s ok then gave her some pettings. I looked in at her and she was asleep in her bed then when I seen her lying on the floor about 2:00pm, like she does when relaxing, I noticed she was having labored breathing. I went in and she got in her one bed under the vanity so I laid my hand on her side hoping she would breathe normal, but that didn’t happen. I went and got the digital thermometer to take her temp which was below normal at 97.9. I called the vet’s to see if I could get her in which I did.

Dr. Jessie seen how bad TEAKEE was breathing, checked her heart which sounded good then listened to her lungs. She wanted to get a couple Xrays which showed her chest filled completely with fluid. Dr. Jessie said she could drain the fluid, but would be back within 48 hours. Her breathing had gotten much worse in the time of being there and my heart felt so sad as I knew I had to make that decision right then to let my baby girl go as I didn’t want her suffering. I told her it was ok to go.

I have added a few pictures in TEAKEE’S Gallery at the bottom of her page. You can click on each picture for better viewing. She is being Cremated and should be back in about a week or so.

My heart is xtra heavy with sadness and I know you all understand the pain, but I have to get my Thank Yous out to each of you or it won’t be done if I keep putting it off!

Please Thank the entire Hairballz Rainbow Riders, too!

Also, Thank you for the Condolences of Toebee. She was adopted along with her brother Thundyr when they were about 2-4 months old to a very nice single lady, Momma Judy. I have been Gma to them.

Here's a Girl Power Crew vote for you in Teakee’s Memory.

Loving Hugs,

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
Whiskers gave his Talley a deep, warm kiss. I didn’t want you to worry about us this morning. My Mom just got home and she is running behind with my blogs. I’m watching her right now and making sure she sits down with me as soon as she gets settled. Mom is getting ready for her trip to GM’s and that means getting our house here ready too! We want to make it easy on Dad to take care of us- with a lot help from me of course.

I love you sweetheart and will be back to meow with you soon. K. Pete’s new vehicle is beautiful! We can hardly wait to go on a road trip with the family.

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

Love can never grow old.
Locks may lose their brown and gold.
Cheeks may fade and hollow grow.
But the hearts that love will know,
never winter’s frost and chill,
summer’s warmth is in them still.

LNPA Leave No Paws Behind
LNPB is a 501 (c) 3 non profit corporation
governed by the laws of the State of CA. We are an all breed, all foster based rescue, specializing in seniors, terminal & end of life animals, & pets with special needs. When possible we step up, most times in the “11th” hour when all hope is gone, to help save the
lives of those that are in most danger of being left behind to die on a cold shelter floor.
LNPB provides hospice care, comfort, love & a safe haven for the terminally ill & the hard core cases & LNPB will never board a rescued animal. Upon rescue, we immediately have all of our rescues vetted, & LNPB never determines the outcome or diagnosis, & rely on the expertise of our skilled & excellent team of DVM’s. Those with minor, treatable medical needs & disabilities per diagnosis from the Doctor’s are placed in the loving care of fosters until they are adopted. LNPB’s more serious medically challenged rescues, such as seniors who may suffer with terminal &/or severe mobility medical conditions as diagnosed by the Doctor’s, are
placed in loving hospice/long term foster care for as long as needed.
From time to time, & when deemed necessary by our Doctor’s diagnosis, we have the sad task of helping our beloved animals cross the rainbow bridge.We are with them, holding & loving them until they peacefully
pass quietly in our arms. We do not hesitate to pull the terminally ill or the ones the shelter will inevitably PTS due to sickness & inability to walk as we cannot bear having them die alone, frightened & sadly wondering. We are doing for our four legged friends what they cannot do for themselves because their life matters. We are their voice & we will continue saving lives one paw a time as we make every effort to assure we Leave No Paws Behind. LNPB relies solely on public donations, no amount is to small & all amounts benefit the health & well fare of abused & abandoned animals & are tax deductible.

GuideStar gives LNPB 5 out of 5 stars, other charity groups did not evaluate.
Thanks very much for your support. Prayers 4 all in need. Voted. Peace & love. King Dean

Whiskers overheard his brother K. Pete,
offer to sell his Nissan Frontier Truck to Gato at a great price. Whiskers remembered how his GP had owned a Nissan Frontier pick up truck and after GP passed away, the truck was in such great condition, Mom got a lot of offers for it, especially from those people that knew GP(a proud Marine) and how meticulous he was about his vehicles. But Mom gave it to one of her brothers as a small way to say thanks for his help taking care of the family.

Gato was incredulous at K. Pete’s generosity and he just didn’t feel right accepting his offer of purchasing the pristine truck. Gato knew from his past experiences that nothing good in life ever came easy. Gato shook K. Pete’s paw and said, “I appreciate all that you and your family have done for me, and I’ll never stop trying to repay all of you; but I need to work a few years before deserving something so grand as the vehicle you drive.”
Gato hugged K. Pete and said, “I know you, most of all, will understand what I mean.”
K. Pete nodded and sat down next to Gato. Gato had only been with them for a few weeks. Gato had been starving and almost on his last breath; yet he here he was , alive and a very well loved member of the family.
K. Pete held Gato’s paw, looking deep into his eyes and said, “Gato, if our positions were changed...if you had all the monetary possessions you and your family could ever need and you had a chance to help others less fortunate than you, what would you do?
Gato’s eyes stayed fixed to the ground. He didn’t have to think twice about the question that K. Pete posed to him. Yet he remembered a time when it was dog-eat-dog in his world, and he shuddered to think about how selfish and cruel he had been, in the guise of survival.
Gato held on tightly to K. Pete’s paw and said, “I’m going to dedicate my life to helping others, just as your family has shown me; and I happily accept your offer to buy your truck. I hope someday I can do the same for many of my fellow furiends.”
K. Pete nodded and said, “I have no doubt you’ll be a great asset to our community.”

Whiskers and Talley came downstairs to join the family. Whiskers mewed with a heavy heart, “I just heard that our dear furiend Teakee Knight became an Angel. Talley and I are going to the Chapel to pray for Angel Teakee and her family. Would anyone like to join us?” Everyone nodded sadly as they gathered their jackets. This would be one of those days when having so many furiends would be a much needed blessing.

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

If I had a penny for every time I thought of you,
I’d only have one,
Because you never left my mind.

Yes, Jynxx is a big part of my life. What would I do without him? We will marry someday but we will most likely elope in secret because The Catparazzi is always on my tail. This song reminds me of my "Soul Tom."

Right Here Waiting
By Richard Marx

Oceans apart day after day
And I slowly go insane
I hear your voice on the line
But it doesn't stop the pain

If I see you next to never
How can we say forever

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I took for granted, all the times
That I thought would last somehow
I hear the laughter, I taste the tears
But I can't get near you now

Oh, can't you see it baby
You've got me going crazy

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I wonder how we can survive
This romance
But in the end if I'm with you
I'll take the chance

Oh, can't you see it baby
You've got me going crazy

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you
Waiting for you

ARF Animal Rescue Foundation
ARF saves dogs & cats who have run out of time at public shelters & brings people & animals together to enrich each others lives. ARF strives to create a world where every loving dog & cat has a home, where every lonely person has a companion animal, & where children learn to care. ARF is a national leader in the animal welfare industry co-founded by Elaine & Tony La Russa in 1991. The nonprofit receives no government funding. ARF’s core mission is the rescue of dogs & cats who have run out of time at public shelters, giving them a chance at life until a new home can be found. ARF couples this focus with innovative programs strengthening the human-animal bond for children, seniors, veterans, & people in disadvantaged circumstances. Through ARF, people
experience the unconditional love & acceptance of dogs & cats to fulfill a mission of “People Rescuing Animals…Animals Rescuing People…”
The catalyst for ARF came when a stray tortoiseshell cat looking for food took a wrong turn & suddenly found herself on a baseball field in the Oakland Coliseum. The frantic cat dashed around the field, panicked & unable to find a way out, she slinked towards the infield, exhausted from her ordeal. Tony La Russa, manager for the Oakland Athletics, coaxed her into the dugout where she spend the rest of the game in safe confines. Sadly there was not a single no-kill shelter in the SF Bay Area & the little cat would likely be euthanized. The La Russas finally placed “Evie” in a permanent, loving home where she could live out her natural life. The experience caused Elaine & Tony to take action. Less than a year later,they co-founded ARF with the goal of rescuing dogs & cats before they ran out of time at high-kill shelters. With a small team of driven volunteers, ARF worked saved the lives of more than 100 dogs & cats its first year. ARF realized rescuing animals was as important as the remarkable role they play in the lives of people. ARF's dual mission of "People Rescuing Animals...Animals Rescuing People" was born. Early humane education programs began in 1993, ingraining an early love of animals in school-aged children. Two years later, a therapy animal team & other programs introduced the unconditional love & acceptance of animals to seniors, veterans, at-risk youth, & more people in need. Programs to help low-income pet guardians keep their beloved pets in homes & out of shelters soon followed.
Today, ARF is renowned as a local leader & national model in the animal welfare community. Since its inception, ARF has re-homed more than 30,000 dogs & cats saved from public animal shelters, performed more than 28,000 S/N surgeries to combat pet overpopulation, & is home to an array of innovative outreach & education programs bringing people & animals together to enrich each other's lives.
Charity Navigator gives 4 stars, GuideStar awards 5 stars,& BB Wise Giving says ARF meets the 20 Standards of Accountability. King Dean

Wow, we had so much fun yesterday
that the pawty goes on! This COTD thing is getting to be a birthday tradition for me! I remember my very first badge, back in 2011 when Mike & Mallow arranged for a surprise campaign for my 10th birthday. We didn’t know back then just how important a part of our lives CC and our friends here was going to become, and we’re all very thankful to be part of this great big family!

It’s been pouring and blowing at my house, winds are gusting up to 37 mph and a road crew has just finished up clearing a big fir tree that blew down across the road, just up the block. It’s a purrfect day for us all to gather by the fire in my cabin with fresh bread, catnip jam and hot apple cider. And of course great company! No Harleys in the house though, Mom says.

Evie hugs Maggie Meme for the lovely tennis bracelet and just for being her sweet self. She hugs all the Hairballz and thanks them for the catpagne and beluga caviar. Oooh lala! And most of all, thanks for being part of another very special day in my life here on CC ~ ♥ Evie

Whiskers was awakened by his phone
vibrating on his nightstand. Whenever his phone rang early in the morning, Whiskers got a worried feeling in the pit of his tummy. Before reaching over to check his messages, he paused to give his beautiful wife a kiss, glad to see she was still fast asleep and thankful for another morning with his beloved Talley.

Whiskers read the sad mews on his phone. Jazpyr Knight’s fursis Toebee, had become an Angel after a valiant battle with cancer. Whiskers set his phone down and said a silent prayer for their dear furiend and her family. Talley was awake by now and she mewed, “What’s wrong my love?”
Whiskers pulled Talley tightly into his arms and told her that Toebee had been called back home to Heaven. The two kitties in love held each other as they cried.
It broke Whiskers’ heart to see his Talley cry. He whispered to her, “We have to take solace in the belief that Angel Toebee is at peace now. She’s no longer in any discomfort and she’s with her Angel fursibs once again. I’m sure Angel Lucy, Angel Sylvie and Angel Maggie will be there to welcome her home. We have to pray to God to give Toebee’s family the strength to go on and hope her memories can sustain them.”

Whiskers kissed Talley on her forehead and said, “We’ll go to the Chapel later to light a prayer candle for Angel Toebee. I always like to think the candles we light for our loved ones, will illuminate the path over the Rainbow Bridge, so Heaven’s newest Angel can feel the love.”
Whiskers got out of bed to fetch Talley her warm robe. Talley smiled and said, “You only have two more days of medicine left my love. I can tell by the rosy color in your cheeks that you’re going to be just fine. I’m proud of you Whiskers. I know it hasn’t been easy for you, but I hope I’ve made it made it a little more tolerable.”
Whiskers grinned and said, “Are you kidding? I couldn’t have done it without you my love. And your apple pie was the icing on the cake!”

Pearl and Annabella were preparing an Egg & Hash Brown skillet this morning. Lisa and Opal had picked fresh carrots and zucchini from the greenhouse and both were busy shredding the vegetables to add to the skillet breakfast. Whitey and Orangie had finished preparing Bacon-Cheddar Muffins and were popping them into the oven. Breakfast was a family effort. The laughter from the chefs in the kitchen, added a special warmth throughout the house.

Whiskers and Talley joined their family at the table. Whiskers helped Talley to her seat, before sitting down himself and breaking the sad news about Toebee to the family. Angel Lucy nodded and said, “My sisters and I were there in Heaven to welcome Angel Toebee. She looks wonderful. Toebee told us she had grown so tired in her earthly body and it was nice to feel as healthy as a kitten again. Of course she misses her family, but the welcome she received from her Angel fursibs was incredible. We’re going to go back to join in the celebration, but we wanted to let you all know Angel Toebee is just fine.”

Flower and the kids sat quietly at the table, looking very sad. Raven turned her opened laptop screen towards the kids and said, “I have something to put a smile on your faces. Look at the screen. I was checking on Belinda and the kits.”
The kids peered into the screen and smiles broke out all around. Belinda and her kits were just sitting down to eat breakfast and they were all wearing their bright, new colorful jackets. With big smiles on their faces, the scene was a sight to warm everyone’s hearts.
Raven laughed and said, “Belinda told me her kits love their new jackets and they were thrilled to get so many compliments from their furiends at school yesterday. The Rainbow Meadow Tailors did a fine job and made a certain family, very happy indeed.”
Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie were beaming.

As they family enjoyed a delicious breakfast together, Thomas spoke of what wonderful students Raphael, Magda and Petra were and he thanked the kids for making the transition to school so delightful for them.
Flower asked his Dad, “Will Auntie Belinda and the kits be riding to school with us? We promised Raphael and his sisters we’d all sit together at school. They were so popular yesterday, everyone wanted to sit with them.”
Mitch smiled and ruffled the fur on his son’s head. He said, “Yes Flower, we’ll be picking them up after breakfast. I’m proud of you kids for making their first day at school so special.”
Flower looked at his Dad puzzled and said, “Of course we did Dad. They’re family now, right?”

Whiskers smiled as he listened and said, “That’s exactly what we are Flower my boy; one big happy family!” Whiskers bent over to give his precious Talley a soft kiss. He felt eternally blessed.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my beloved Talley.

You are my answered prayer,
My fulfilled wish,
My realized dream.

"♫ Happy birthday to me ... ♫
Catchy little tune, huh? And you sang it very well!

And what a pawty we are having, Mom went all out. She opened a little bitty can of Fancy Feast Flaked Trout for lunch, then she put fresh ‘nip in our ‘nip mat and toys, and best of all she soaked my honeysuckle stick and woke up ALL the awesomeness of it. So Moji Blackbear is rolling on my stick, Mikey is rolling on the ‘nip mat, and I (giggle), *I* am finishing up everyone’s trout. No calories on a girl’s birthday, after all.

I am such a lucky kitty to have reached the big milestone of 14 years in such purrfect health. After all, this makes me 72 in human years and that is definitely something to celebrate! And I am a doubly lucky kitty to be able to celebrate with all my CC friends! And now that the Hairballz are here, the pawty is really complete!

Thanks big bunches for the beautiful cake and bouquet of bright flowers. I'll put them right in the middle of the table so everyone can enjoy them!

I’m giving ach of the Hairballz a goody bag with a little can of trout, some freeze-dried chicken treats that Mike & Mojo love, and my purrsonal favourite, Royal Canin Medi-treats. Thanks for sharing my big day! ~~ Big white kitty loves ♥ Evie

The rattling of their bedroom window woke
Whiskers from his sleep. Talley was sound asleep in his arms, her pretty head lying on his furry chest. Whiskers smoothed the soft fur on her head, thankful for another day with his precious wife. The window rattled again, a gust of wind shaking the house from outside. This time Talley woke up. Whiskers pulled Talley closer to his body and said, “It’s just the wind sweetheart. I have a feeling I’ll be out raking leaves for the next few days. Winter is announcing its arrival.”
Talley smiled and held up her face for a good morning kiss. She mewed, “I bet it’s going to be chilly today. We better make sure the kids bundle up warmly for school.”
Whiskers nodded and said, “I asked Belinda if she would like her kits to attend school. I know Flower, Ralph and the kids are eager for their new furiends to come to school with them, but Belinda seemed hesitant.”
Talley thought about it for a minute and said, “I think we need to give Belinda some time to settle into her new living situation. Once she feels more comfortable with all of us, I think she’ll want what’s best for her kits. She’s very protective of them and rightly so. Belinda just lost her husband so her kits are her whole world to her right now. Let’s take it slow and easy with her.”
Whiskers nodded, agreeing with Talley’s wise insight into their new furiend. Talley kissed Whiskers on his nose and said, “Okay sweetheart, you know what time it is.”
Whiskers started to groan, knowing that it was time for medicine, but he stifled his groan when he thought of the apple pie that would follow. He followed Talley over to the desk, sat down and waited while Talley got his dose ready. Talley smiled as she held the medicine bottle up to the light, shaking it gently and said, “You’re almost finished my love. That wasn’t so bad, now was it?”
Whiskers shook his head as he closed his eyes, tilted his head and opened his mouth like a good patient. Talley squirted the medicine in his mouth and when Whiskers opened his eyes, a warm slice of Talley’s apple pie was waiting for him. He smiled, rubbing his paws together and said, “We really need to plant more apple trees in our yard, just like your Mom and Dad did.”
Talley giggled as she carefully put away the medicine. She loved seeing her husband eat heartily. She shuddered to think what she would do if Whiskers ever didn’t have an appetite for her apple pie.
Talley said, “Let’s shower and get ready so we can see if the girls need help with breakfast, although with Esmeralda here, I imagine the kitchen is going to be busy.”

Whiskers whisked his beautiful wife up into his arms and the two kitties in love giggled all the way to the shower.

Downstairs the breakfast table was set and some of the family were having their morning coffee together. Callie was pouring another cup of coffee for K. Pete and Thomas just as Pearl and Annabella brought some fresh apple cinnamon muffins to the table. Whitey, Orangie and Esmeralda had baked three large Spinach Bacon and Cheddar Frittatas with platters of extra crispy bacon on the side. The wonderful aromas filled the air. Bumper and Paulie were just starting a fire in the fireplace.
Whiskers pulled out a chair for Talley, pouring her a cup of hot coffee so she could keep her tiny paws warm around the cup. Whiskers said to his brother K. Pete, “Did you hear the wind howling this morning? It woke us up.”
K. Pete nodded and said, “Mitch called me on my cell phone this morning. He’s doing a quick assessment of the grounds for any damage. I think the maintenance we do every day around the shelters will keep any problems to a minimum, but we might have some clean up to do today.

The sound of a truck pulling into the driveway got everyone’s attention. Whiskers opened the front door and a cold gust of wind blew inside the house causing the flames in the fireplace to flicker. Mitch was all smiles, looking wind blown and chilly from the cold air. “Look who I have with me. I asked Belinda and the kits to join us for breakfast.”
Raphael, Magda and Petra came bounding in through the front door. Flower jumped from his chair to greet his furiends. Raphael leapt over to give Flower a hug, toppling Flower to the ground, as the two boys wrestled on the living room floor. Belinda said in a stern voice, “Raphael! What did I tell you? You have to be careful with your furiends. You have to remember your size.”
Raphael got up with his head hanging down and said, “I’m sorry Momma. I was so excited, I just forgot.”
Flower got up quickly and said, “I’m okay Auntie Belinda. Raphael and I were just playing.”
Belinda’s face softened when she said, “I know Flower. I just want my kids to remember they are much larger than most of you and I wouldn’t want anyone to get hurt accidentally.” Belinda held out her arms to Raphael when she saw his lip quivering. She held her little boy in her arms and said, “We all need to be more careful sweetheart, okay?”
Raphael nodded and gave his Mom a smile. Belinda smiled and said her good mornings to the family. Callie poured more hot coffee and hot chocolates for the kids. Belinda sat next to Esmeralda, giving her a warm hug.

Pearl kissed Mitch and put a cup of hot coffee in his paws. Mitch thanked his wife and said, “Boy is it ever chilly outside. The sky is clear and the wind is really gusting.

It’s a beautiful fall morning, but my bones tell me winter is around the corner.”
Mitch said to K. Pete as sat down at the table, “The wind hasn’t caused any damage with the trees, but we’re going to have a lots of leaves to clean up. I have my leaf blower and mulcher all ready to go after school.”
K. Pete said, “Whiskers and I can get started this morning. Thomas was just telling us his Forest Survival Skills classrooms are filled up to capacity. You and him will be busy teaching, so don’t worry about cleanup. We have it covered.

Breakfast was served after Flower, Ralph, Timothy and Raphael sounded the chime together. After joining paws and saying the morning prayer, everyone dug into their meal with gusto.
Esmeralda asked Belinda, “Will your kids be attending school this semester?”
Belinda furrowed her brow and said, “I’ve been giving it a lot of thought. My kids haven’t been able to stop talking about it. I’m just a little worried about how they’ll fit in with the others kids- because of their size.”
Everyone spoke up at once, easing Belinda’s worries about the kids fitting in. Whiskers said, “You know how easily kids adapt to just about anything and I know Flower and all of our kids will be looking after them.”
Esmeralda said to Belinda, “If I may suggest, why don’t go with your kids to school so you can see for yourself that it will work out just fine. I know for a fact from many of my furiends with kids at school, that the school can always use volunteers to help out with supervision. You might want to consider doing that.”
Belinda looked hopeful at the thought.
Thomas said, “Belinda, why don’t you bring the kids to my Forest Survival class today. I think you might enjoy it. Afterwards, Mitch can take all of you on a tour of the school and then you can decide later if school is something you and the kids might like. If you decide you would rather do home schooling, I’m sure Annabella, Pearl and the girls will be happy to set that up for you too. What ever you feel comfortable with my furiend.”
Belinda wiped a tear from her eye and said, “Thank you all so very much. I think my kits and I will go visit your school today.” All the kids threw up their paws and cheered.
Callie came from the kitchen and said, “No one is going anywhere without a heavy jacket this morning. We have plenty of sizes in the hall closet to fit everyone. Angel Maggie, Esmeralda and I are going to fix a big pot of beef stew today. So hurry back home!”

Whiskers smiled as he watched his family and he felt very, very blessed.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my beloved Talley.

My love for you is a journey.

PEF The Pets for the Elderly Foundation
PEF began in Cleveland in 1992, & expanded nationally in 2001 with a goal of saving as many companion animals as possible from euthanasia. We have a small staff, & all administrative costs are paid by the founder's related foundation. Currently there are 48 participating shelters in 27 states. More shelters are added as funding becomes available. Our goal is to save the lives of 6,000 companion pets annually, while enhancing the lives of an equal number of senior citizens.

PEF is a 501 (c)(3) public charity whose mission is to provide companionship to senior individuals through pet ownership, while saving the lives of companion animals in shelters; animals which might otherwise be destroyed due to lack of appropriate homes, & space limitations. PEF began with two shelters near Cleveland, Ohio. Since then, PEF has seen great success & has grown to a nationwide program. PEF branched out nationally in 2002, & has helped successfully place nearly 57,000 companion animals with senior adopters. PEF helps pay the fees to participating animal shelters throughout the US for senior citizens (age 60 & over) who adopt a companion dog or cat from a participating shelter - including pre-adoption veterinary exams & S/N, if part of the adoption fee. Research shows the most serious disease for older persons is not cancer or heart disease - it's loneliness. Pets offer affection, unconditional love, fight loneliness, & can help ease the loss of a loved one.

PEF provides financial support for the adoption of companion pets, cats & dogs only.
It does not accept unwanted dogs & cats. We are strictly financial support for adoption programs with participating shelters. One can not adopt a dog or cat directly through PEF. We are strictly financial support for adoption programs with participating shelters. We do not have the facilities to house adoptable animals, nor do we match pets & adopters. We are a small business office only, & do not have space for volunteers.

The fee for adopting a pet through a PEF shelter will vary depending upon location. PEF underwrites a portion of the adoption cost for dogs & cats at participating shelters. Because our program is located in 58 shelters in 30 different states, adoption fees & policies can vary widely. The Foundation business office is just outside Phoenix, AZ. We do not have branch offices, but our participating shelters are in 30 different states.

GuideStar, Charity Navigator & BBB Wise Giving all have no review for this group.
Thanks very much for your support. Prayers 4 all in need. Peace & love. Kitty Kisses. King Dean

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
We had a surprise visit from our Aunt Doris, my Mom’s sister who lives in San Diego. She was on business up here and stayed with us for two nights. We like our Aunt Doris because she has two cats and a doggie of her own. We enjoy sniffing her luggage. MOL!

I always have you in my dreams sweetheart. It's the purrfect day for daydreaming. We're getting some rain and lots of wind. I love you beautiful kitty.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my precious Talley.

The meeting between Esmeralda and Belinda
had been a heartwarming and touching moment. Whiskers and Talley had cautioned Esmeralda to not be surprised or taken aback by Belinda’s large size. Esmeralda had never met a bobcat face to face, but she was pretty sure Belinda’s size wouldn’t deter them from becoming good furiends. Esmeralda was so right. When the two met, no words were spoken at first. Esmeralda held out her paws to Belinda and Belinda, without hesitation, embraced her new furiend. Belinda was wearing the precious gold locket around her neck that had belonged to Esmeralda. Esmeralda choked back her tears and said, “The locket looks beautiful on you Belinda. I can almost see my Chester nodding his head in approval.”
Belinda held the locket gently within her large paws and said, “When I placed my Joe’s fur inside this beautiful locket, I too could feel his approval. Not only could I feel his love, but all the love that this precious piece of jewelry holds.”
The two furiends embraced once more. Esmeralda wiped the tears from her eyes and said, “Where are my manners? Please, Whiskers, Talley and Belinda, sit down and let me pour you some tea. I have some maple cream cookies that Victoria dropped off just yesterday when her and Phillip were shopping in the village.”
Whiskers licked his lips and said, “We can’t stay long Esmeralda. Belinda wanted to meet you and thank you for the cherished gift. We left her kits, Raphael, Magda and Petra at the house playing with our kids. We were hoping you might want to come back with us to spend the weekend with us. We’ll be barbequing again tonight while the weather is still nice. If you can get away from the store of course.”
Esmeralda smiled and said, “I’d love to come to your home Whiskers. I know I can leave my shop in very capable paws with Amy and Calico in charge. Those two kitties have become indispensible to the shop and me. I never thought I would be able to retire; my antique shop has become an extension of my whole life; but with Amy and Calico, I now feel the store will go on, even after I’m gone.”
Talley set down her tea looking worried and mewed, “Esmeralda, are you feeling all right? When was the last time you had a checkup with Dr. Fluffy?”
Esmeralda smiled at her dear furiends and said, “I feel just fine. I think I’m just starting to feel my age.”
Esmeralda looked at Belinda and said, “When I lost my husband, I thought my life was over; but it was actually a new beginning for me. I’ll always believe that my Chester led me here to St. Peter’s Haven and I believe your Joe has done the same for you and your children. We have been blessed with guardian angels that will always look after us, and it’s up to us to show our gratitude to the Lord and his Angels by making the most of our lives here on earth.”

Whiskers was holding on tightly to his Talley, when Amy walked over, wanting to break up the sad mood in the air. Amy mewed, “Esmeralda, I took the liberty of packing an overnight bag for you. Calico and I have everything here under control, so please, go be with our furiends and have a wonderful weekend.”
The smile on Esmeralda’s face was from ear to ear. Whiskers took the overnight bag from Amy, giving her a big hug. Esmeralda couldn’t leave her store without going over last minute details with Amy and Calico. Belinda watched her new furiend, enthralled with how successful and confident Esmeralda had made herself, even after losing her husband. Belinda knew, right then and there, she would work as hard as she could to give back to this community and to pave a bright new future for her children. Without even thinking, Belinda held the locket around her neck in her paws. She whispered, “Thank you Joe. The kids and I are going to be just fine.”

On the drive back home, Talley said to Esmeralda, “Dr. Fluffy is coming to check on Magda’s hurt paw sometime this weekend. I’d like to have her give you a checkup while she’s here. Nothing wrong with preventative care, right?”
Whiskers smiled, looking in his rear view mirror at Esmeralda and said, “Don’t fight it Esmeralda. My Talley is always looking after all of us. Look at me...I’m living proof of her nursing skills!”
Esmeralda smiled and said, “Will I be getting a slice of Talley’s apple pie after Dr. Fluffy’s examination?”
The car was filled with laughter! Whiskers mewed, “I’m telling you, if we could bottle Talley’s apple pie- there would be no more sickness in the world.” Whiskers leaned over to kissed his precious wife.

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

Without you, I’m nothing.
With you, I’m something.
Together, we’re everything. ♥

NKAC No Kill Advocacy Center
NKAC, founded in 2004 by Nathan Winograd, was the nation’s first & at the time, only full-service No Kill
community, saving not only dogs & cats, all community cats, & rabbits, hamsters, gerbils, horses, & others. In 2005, NKAC held its first No Kill conference,with less than two dozen people attending. In 2013, hundreds of cities & towns across America have save rates better than 90% & as high as 99% using our No Kill Equation model of sheltering. In 2005, we talked about the goal of saving at least 90%. In 2012, we weren’t satisfied with 98% as we explored what’s possible when we reach higher.
The NKAC’s influence is not only increasing,
it is widening. Almost half of all attendees at the No Kill Conference(46%) came from shelters, including many municipal facilities subject to public acrimony over high rates of killing. They are increasingly looking
to the NKAC, & not traditional national organizations,
because while we offer condemnation when it is deserved, we also offer solutions & assistance. If shelters want to save lives, they do not want antiquated dogmas which represent the past. That can only mean good things as we collectively move toward our inevitable No Kill future.
Nathan J. Winograd is the Director of the national NKAC. He has spoken nationally & internationally on animal sheltering issues, has written animal protection legislation at the state & national level, has created successful No Kill programs in both urban & rural communities,and has written five books on the No Kill Equation.
There are communities in the US that have eliminated population control killing. We want, & the animals deserve, No Kill in every city in the country. But it requires shelter leaders committed to these goals & embarking on a campaign of diligent implementation. That is where we must focus our efforts at reform. Only the No Kill Equation model has achieved this success. It is a program model which changes the way shelters operate & which gives the animal loving public an integral role in that operation. If a community wants success, this is how to go: nothing else has succeeded.
No Kill shelters can be public or private, large or small, humane societies or municipal agencies. About 9,000,000 people now live in communities saving 90% or more of dogs & cats in their shelters. Over 35,000,000 live in communities saving 80% or more of dogs and cats. The numbers continue to grow.
None of the 4 charity watchdog groups have evaluated NKAC. However, the concept fortunately has spread & saved millions of lives & will continue to do so.
Thanks very much for your support. Prayers 4 all in need. Peace & Love. King Dean

Talley was ready with her husband’s medicine
this morning and it was all over before Whiskers knew it. He relished the taste of Talley’s apple pie afterwards and said, “I’m telling you sweetheart, taking medicine is a snap with your apple pie to look forward to afterwards. I really have to suggest this to my vet and Dr. Fluffy.”

As the two kitties in love dressed for their day, Whiskers hugged Talley and said, “I’m sorry we missed the hockey games last night sweetheart. I heard that your team lost in overtime. It must have been a very exciting game.”
Talley nodded as Whiskers ran a brush through her soft fur. She said, “It was really close, but we just couldn’t pull it off. Ms. Murphy was named as one of the stars of the game though. It was fun. We were all happy when KCK came home with a win. Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy were on top of the world.”
Whiskers listened as he brushed Talley’s beautiful fur. He said, “My Dad’s brother and his wife came over to celebrate Veteran’s Day at our house. Then they got a phone call from my Dad’s son Joe, who lives in North Carolina with his family. He’s baby George’s Dad. Well, sadly he called to say him and his wife are having marriage problems and have split up. He has baby George with him and he wants to bring George with him to San Jose for Christmas. George isn’t really a baby anymore. He’s three years old already! My pawrents are delighted to have them here, but sad about the circumstances. Hopefully Dad’s son Joe and his wife will be able to work it out.”
Talley nodded sadly and said, “It’s especially sad when kids are involved. We’ll keep them in our prayers sweetheart.”
Whiskers kissed the top of Talley’s head and said, “Thank you my love. I wish everyone could be as happy we are.”

Downstairs at the dining table, everyone was looking at something that Ms. Murphy had pulled up on her laptop screen. Whiskers and Talley joined the family, wondering what was so interesting. Whiskers and Talley leaned over to get a glimpse. Ms. Murphy pointed to a corner of her screen and said, “I was checking to see how Belinda and her kids were doing and I noticed something in the corner. I zoomed up as close I could.” Whiskers had to squint his eyes to see what the camera was showing.
Raven smiled and said, “Sleeping on the pile of straw in the corner are the mouse family that Belinda almost brought home for dinner...and I don’t mean as dinner guests! Who would have thought a family of mice and a family of bobcats would be sleeping comfortably under the same roof!”

Everyone shook their heads, smiling as they watched the tender scene. Gato grinned and said, “I think Belinda had it right when she referred to the shelters as St. Peters Haven. The name describes the shelters purrfectly.”

Callie and Angel Maggie came from the kitchen with baskets of warm bacon cinnabons. Callie said, “Angel Maggie and I baked some cinnabons for Belinda and her kids too. Mitch, can you drop them off when you take the kids to school?”
Mitch nodded happily, unable to take his eyes away from the screen.

On the video cam, Belinda was rising from her sleep very slowly so as not to wake her babies and she walked over to add wood into the fireplace. Belinda sat looking at the fire, holding the small pendant that she wore around her neck. Whiskers whispered, “Last night I saw the necklace that Belinda is wearing around her neck, and wondered what it was. It looked like a small acorn on a leather rope.”
Talley nodded and said, “I asked Belinda about it. I thought it was quite unique. Belinda told me she keeps a tuft of fur belonging to her husband Joe, inside the acorn. When he passed away, before she buried his body, Belinda said she cut some fur from his body, so she could always keep him close to her.”
Whiskers said sadly, “I wonder if it would be too presumptuous of us to get her a nice locket to keep Joe’s fur? Maybe we can ask Esmeralda’s advice.”
Talley smiled and said, “I think that would be a lovely gift for our new furiend.”

Callie nodded to Flower, Ralph and Timothy, indicating it was time to ring the breakfast chime. The boys jumped up postehaste, as the delicious aromas of maple cured bacon filled the air.
After saying grace and a special prayer for Heaven’s newest angel, Angel Sandy, the family enjoyed their scrumptious start to the day. Angel Sylvie, Angel Lucy and Angel Maggie reported to the family that Angel Sandy was doing just fine in her new angel wings and she had been welcomed to Heaven by hundreds of angels. Angel Lucy said, “My sisters and I are going to spend some time today with Angel Sandy’s family on earth. They are grief stricken at the loss of their furbaby and we feel we’re needed there today. It’s always hardest on the family that is left behind, but I assure all of you, Angel Sandy feels like a kitten again. She knows someday she’ll be reunited with her family.”

Whitey and Orangie volunteered for kitchen clean up this morning so everyone could get started on their day. Before Ms. Murphy closed up her laptop, she looked once more at the video cam and said, “It looks like Belinda is about to change the bandage on Magda’s foot. Magda’s foot must be feeling better because she’s smiling and Petra and Raphael are holding her paws. They are such an adorable family.”

Mitch and Thomas would be taking the kids to school this morning. Whiskers gave the kids a warm hug before they left and told them once again, how proud he was of them for sharing their toys with Raphael Magda and Petra. In the back of his mind, Whiskers was already planning on getting the kids another Planes Play Set. He didn’t want to spoil them, but he knew how much they loved anything that had to do with their favorite Disney movie and he knew it was a true act of love and kindness for them to part with it.

Whiskers and Talley would be going into town again today. Whiskers had Callie and Angel Maggie’s grocery list for the Friday night hockey menu. The girls wanted to continue with the Veteran’s Day theme and were planning a barbeque feast. Talley told her husband they could visit Esmeralda’s antique shop to look for a locket necklace for Belinda and stop at the toyshop before filling the grocery list the girls had given them.
Talley told Pete, “We’ll ask Esmeralda if she has any ideas yet on your special gift for Neekah Boo.” K. Pete gave his beautiful sister a thank you kiss.
Whiskers whistled a happy tune on the way out to the car, knowing this was going to be another blessed day with his precious family.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my darling Talley.

Love Expressed ♥
‘A song is not a song until you sing it
A bell is not a bell until you ring it
Love wasn’t put in your heart to stay
Love isn’t love ‘til you give it away’

This old saying is very true
Love came to me right out of the blue
I was all alone on a mountain track
And God said to me that I would not lack

At first sight of her I had feelings to share
Her spell bounding laughter filled the air
Thoughts of love like falling leaves
Caressed me like an autumn breeze

She’s by my side now day and night
I love it that way. It feels just right
At peace when she’s in my arms
I’m captured by her special charms

I could go on for days, about how I feel
For expressing my love has made it real
To receive God’s love is to do our part
Then it boomerangs love to another’s heart.

Hi Talley!
Oh, that sounds wonderful! We do pretty well signing in during the day, since Baba gets up at noon, and it's evening before she gets worrisome. Sadly, hockey is in evening. Boo! Yes, we are glad Quincy is with her mummy and settling right in. Mama always knew that would be the best outcome, but she got so attached in spite of herself. wE all did. How can you not? She is just like her online persona and nearly as cute as me! Yes, we all love your family very much, too. I think your daddy is our only uncle! Want to come sit in our sunbeam? It's awfully nice!

Dear Talley, My Precious Love, It's Your Whiskers
I’m sorry for the brief love meow to you today sweetheart. Our Dad has Veteran’s Day off today and we’re expecting his brother and sister-in-law from Santa Cruz, to come over this afternoon to visit and, yes, Dad wants to BBQ again. He said he might try cutting the meat into small pieces and letting it melt in his mouth. MOL! His dental appointment yesterday went well, but he’ll need to keep the stitches in his mouth for another week. My sisters and I hope Mom throws a chicken thigh on the BBQ for us. I deserve it! I took my medicine this morning without too much fuss and I even took a few bites of my cat food on my own. So bring on the BBQ! Hee, hee!

I’ll be thinking of you all day sweetheart and we’ll try to make it to the hockey game tonight. I hope we can continue our story about our new furiends, the bobcat family tomorrow. It’s going to be such great fun! I love you sweet Talley. Give your pawrents warm hugs for us.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my beloved Talley.

Hi Talley!
Everyfur says hi. Misty is with us, too. Auntie said she is happier having a person of her choosing (silly Misty thinks auntie is another kitten!). We thought the coronation is voer? But yes, tell Pete our pilots (me and Vika, I think, maybe Kiska or Koshka?) are ready for duty! Mama will keep us here as best she can. I am so happy to have sunshine to sit in, and laps to sit on. But I miss auntie, too. Quincy told us she was enjoying her mummy cuddles and thanks mama for all the attentions. Isn't it cool? Purrs - Kuzi

PFV Pets for Vets: Healing Vets & Saving Pets
PFV believes our country owes military veterans a debt of gratitude. Our soldiers have been brave but many of them have returned with physical & emotional injuries that have made it difficult to transition back to civilian life. Some estimates state that as many as 20% of returning military veterans suffer from PTSD.
Needy shelter dogs receive a second chance at life while giving our returning soldiers a second chance at health & happiness. The bonds of friendship formed between man & animal have the power to ease the
suffering of our troops when they return from overseas. PFV is a concrete way to thank U.S. Military Veterans for their service.
Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law With each veteran-pet match we provide the necessary equipment for them to start their new life together.Veterans in our chapter areas who could benefit from having a companion animal & who are also able to care for an animal are eligible to receive a PFV companion animal.

The PFV program is dedicated to supporting veterans & providing a second chance for shelter pets by rescuing, training & pairing them with America’s veterans who could benefit from a companion animal. The Pets… 3 to 4 million dogs & cats are euthanized each year. These
animals can make excellent companion animals but never have that chance. Our dedicated animal trainers will evaluate & rescue the shelter animals & provide additional training to ensure that they are able to assimilate into a home, which is quite different from a shelter environment. The Vets… Sadly, there are alarming statistics of suicide, family abuse & PTSD facing veterans returning to civilian life after military duty. This can cause a downward spiral of apathy,unemployment, broken relationships, addiction & depression. It is our
belief that companion animals can be the life saving therapy or friend that many returning service men & women need.
Medical studies have shown that companion animals significantly improve mental & physical health, including reducing stress, depression &anxiety,symptoms experienced by many serving in the military.
The PFV team interviews each veteran to ascertain what he or she is looking for in a companion animal; we pair this with his or her personality & lifestyle to make the perfect veteran-pet match. Once the perfect pet is selected for the veteran, the pet spends time in the home of one of our trainers who teaches the pet basic obedience & other valuable behaviors needed to live with his/her new owner. This can include becoming comfortable with wheel chairs or behaviors needed to help with
PTSD & Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
Check out the website for PFV apparel. GuideStar gives 5 out of 5 stars. Thanks for your support. Prayers 4 those in need. Peace & love. Kitty Kisses.

Whiskers woke up with a start when he reached
for his beautiful Talley and her side of the bed was empty. He bolted up, and then mewed a sigh of relief when he saw her sitting at their desk, measuring out his morning dose of medicine. He saw the slice of apple pie on the tray and smiled.
Talley was concentrating as she filled the syringe with the medicine and she didn’t realize Whiskers was awake and watching her. With the tray all set, she turned to see Whiskers sitting up in bed, smiling at her.
“I didn’t mean to wake you up sweetheart,” she mewed. “I just wanted to have your medicine and apple pie ready when before you woke up.”
Whiskers kept smiling and said, “I panicked when I didn’t see you in bed my love. Thank you for always taking such good care of me.” Whiskers sat up straight, readying himself for the awful taste of antibiotics. The sight of the apple pie sitting on the plate made him feel much better. He would concentrate his senses on the pie and his beautiful wife.

Talley came over to the bed with the tray, sitting down next to her husband. She had become quite efficient at administering medicine and it was all over before Whiskers even had a chance to complain. The apple pie chaser was just what the doctor ordered. Whiskers kissed his beautiful wife and said, “I’m the luckiest patient in the world because I have the most loving and beautiful nurse in the world.”
Whiskers savored the taste of the apple pie in his mouth, swallowed and said, “I should suggest to my vet that she prescribe apple pie with all her medicines.”
Talley giggled as she carefully put the medicine bottle away, making sure she had enough syringes for the next ten days.

Whiskers held out his arms for Talley to come back to bed. He said, “Let’s relax together for a few minutes. I’m so excited we’ll be meeting the bobcat family today.”
Talley smiled and crawled back into her husband’s arms. She said, “I’m so proud of Gato and Oliver for earning the trust of Belinda and her cubs so quickly. Gato is going to be a fine ambassador for our shelters. He really seems to be able to connect with frightened and distraught animals. It must be because of all the hardship he’s been through. I can tell he genuinely wants to help others.”

Whiskers nodded and said, “I think it will be good for his self esteem too. He is always apologizing to me for the way we met and I keep telling him that it’s all water under the bridge. I know now the poor guy was just trying to survive. If anything, we’ll always have a great story to tell our family and furiends about how we met.”
Talley smiled and said, “The important thing is how he conducts his life now, and I see nothing but happiness and good fortune in his future. And I hope that sweet Tuna is a part of his happiness.”

Whiskers kissed Talley on her pretty forehead and said, “Let’s shower and get dressed so we can see what Callie and Angel Maggie need for the special welcome dinner with the bobcat family.”
Talley nodded happily. She was looking forward to their busy day and she felt so relieved that her Whiskers was bouncing back from his trip to vet so quickly.

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

“If my love were an ocean,
there would be no more land.
If my love were a desert,
you would see only sand.
If my love were a star-
late at night, only light.
And if my love could grow wings,
I’d be soaring in flight.”
