About Me

Active within 1 Day

Hi! My name is Talley COTD 01/02/2009

I am Domestic Shorthair from Jacksonville, FL

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

Age: 7 years old

Gender: F

Coat: short haired

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How We Met

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

Hi Sweet Talley, My Precious! It's Your Whiskers!
My sister Callie is doing fine, getting lots of attention from Mom. She hasn’t had any more mishaps in the litter box and she hasn’t thrown up any more fur balls, so we’re pretty sure Callie was just stressing out from when Mom was away. Callie even felt up to a stroller ride this morning. Dad went with us. It was quiet on the trail, no humans or any yappy doggies. We haven’t seen our quail furiends again, but we leave birdseed just in case.

We hope you have a nice relaxing Sunday with your family. We hope your Mom and Dad are enjoying their company!

I left you a vote with soft kisses and warm hugs my darling Talley.

Whiskers smoothed the soft fur on
Talley’s beautiful head as they lay in bed together, waking up to another lovely sunny day. Whiskers was humming a good morning song to his Talley. He said, “I’m sorry your VFP team didn’t win their game last night sweetheart, but you kitties played a great game. I have my paws crossed that your team will get ‘em on the next game.” Talley nodded and said, “It was nice to see KCK win their game though. Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy were so excited. Angel Lucy told me she could hear us all cheering for them during their game and that really inspired her and Angel Lucy.” Talley laughed and said, “Even sweet Neekah Boo almost lost her voice last night.”
Whiskers smiled and said, “Thank goodness for K. Pete’s bullhorn!”

Talley got up to slip on her silk robe. She sat down on the bed by Whiskers and said, “I was glad to see Callie looking so chipper last night. We were all very worried about her.”
Whiskers kissed his pretty wife and said, “Thank you sweetie. I know my Mom was very worried too. Callie slept snuggled in my Mom’s arm all last night. She was exhausted after her trip to the vet. My Mom was sad to learn that Callie gets so stressed out when she goes away. My Mom wishes she never had to leave, but GM is getting old and Mom needs to visit her more often. We think having Dad stay with us helps a lot- it could have been much worse with a cat sitter. Callie is just a very sensitive kitty.”
Talley understood and said, “We all react differently when our pawrents are away. Callie will be okay At least she knows she is loved.”

Whiskers turned the shower on, letting the water run until it was warm enough for him and Talley to enjoy. Talley lighted a scented candle as the two kitties in love began their day, scrubbing each other’s backs. Whiskers smiled, wondering how he ever lasted two weeks without his darling wife.

Knowing they would all be up late at the hockey playoff games last night, Callie and Angel Maggie had done all the work for breakfast this morning, the night before. The two sisters had prepared a Bananas Foster French Toast casserole that only needed to be thrown into a preheated oven and left to cook to purrfection! It was Saturday morning, so a meal with gooey caramel-banana goodness was allowed.

The delicious aromas of French Roast coffee, English breakfast tea and hot chocolate filled the downstairs. As Whiskers and Talley walked downstairs, paw in paw, Whiskers stopped to kiss Talley on the cheek. He mewed, “I love the mornings in our home.” He held his paw to his ear and said, “Listen to that.”
Talley smiled and pointed her ear towards the dining the room. Her smile got bigger as she heard Flower and the kids giggling, Neekah Boo mewing to her sweetheart K. Pete, and Raven and Ms. Murphy discussing hockey strategies.
Talley and Whiskers hugged, knowing they were both truly blessed to have such a wonderful family.

K. Pete looked up from the table when he saw Talley and Whiskers. He smiled, holding Neekah Boo’s paw in his and said, “How does a barbeque today sound? Neekah Boo and I thought it would be nice to relax around the pool today.”

Whiskers high pawed his brother and pretty furiend. “That sounds terrific! A relaxing day with the family has been on my wish list ever since I got home.”
Angel Maggie smiled and added, “I think that would be wonderful for Callie too. I’m keeping my eye on her. I want her to take it easy today.”
Callie gave her sweet sister a warm hug, thanking her for always being concerned.

Angel Maggie winked at Flower and Ralph, letting the boys know it was time to eat. Whiskers rubbed his tummy and said to Callie, “I’m not even going to ask what’s for breakfast. Whatever my nose is smelling right now is driving my whole body crazy.”

Callie laughed and hugged her brother. The day Whiskers ever wasn’t hungry, would be a day for grave concern! The family joined paws to say grace and give thanks for another blessed day together. A prayer was added for Harley and his furiend to be safe and please come home safely. Also a prayer was said for a new furiend named Huck, whom had gone missing yesterday. The family prayed for God’s help and for the help of St. Francis and St. Anthony, to come to the aid of their precious furiends and families.

Breakfast was delicious. Callie and Angel Maggie had added extra powdered sugar and whipped cream to the kids’ meal per their request. Pearl and Annabella had smiled, shaking their heads and saying it was a good thing today would be an active day swimming in the pool. The kids would be bouncing off the walls!

Callie and Angel Maggie had a short grocery list for Whisker and Talley to pick up in the village. Callie hugged her brother and mewed, “We have all the meats we’ll need for the barbeque. We’ll just need some fresh corn and a few condiments.”
K. Pete said, “I’m going to call Esmeralda right now and see if she might want to come over. If she does, you and Talley can pick her up while you’re in the village.”

Whiskers smiled, nodding happily. Flower, Ralph, Timothy and their sisters asked politely if they could accompany Uncle Whiskers and Auntie Talley into town. Whiskers and his beautiful wife were more than happy to oblige.

Pearl put light sweaters on all the kids. There was cool breeze blowing, but the sun was shining and it looked to be a glorious day to spend outdoors. Whiskers ran upstairs to get a wrap for Talley. Whiskers had missed weekends with his precious family. He said a silent prayer to God, thanking Him for his wonderful life. It simply didn’t get any better than this.

Sending soft kisses and warm hugs to my darling Talley.

I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER ♥
~~~~~
I love you so deeply
I love you so much,
I love the sound of your voice
and the way that we touch

I love your warm smile
and your kind, thoughtful way,
and the joy you bring to my life
each and every day

I love you today
as I have from the start,
and I'll love you furever
with all of my heart.

You don't need to apologize, Talley!
It is hard sometimes to figure out who you might have missed, even for Mom. Mom gathers all of us together in the morning and at night just to do a head count. If she comes up short, she has to figure out who is missing, and for that she has a formula. Two black cats (Jack and Mystie); two white cats (Spirit and Anya); two tabbies (KC and Sasha); two Siamese (Leo and Mai Lin); two calicoes (Feather and Verlander); and one lone orange cat (Pique). Having two each of 4 different varieties makes it easy to figure out who is missing! Hugs, KC and the Zoo Crew

Talley was wide-awake this morning
when Whiskers opened his eyes. Worried, he asked, “Is anything wrong sweetheart? Why are you awake so early this morning?” He kissed her softly on her pretty cheek and felt her forehead with his paw. Talley smiled and said, “I’m fine my darling. I was just thinking of the hockey playoff games tonight. The games towards the end of the season are always nerve wracking. I know winning isn’t the most important thing in the world, but it’s always nice for the team when we come home with a win.”
Whiskers smiled and kissed his beautiful wife. “You just have a very competitive spirit my love. That’s why you excel at everything you do. I know your team will play their very best. We’ll all be in the stands cheering for our girls. Remind me to bring the bullhorn tonight, just in case I lose my voice.”
Talley laughed and said, “It does help to have our family cheering for us. Hearing all of you down there on the ice while we’re playing always gets our adrenaline pumping. My sister and I always have the best cheerleaders in the arena.”
Whiskers laughed and said, “At least the loudest ones!”

Whiskers rolled over in bed to check his phone on his nightstand. He read the text message from his Mom looking concerned. He laid back down with Talley and said, “My Mom is a bit worried about Callie. Yesterday Callie had an accident missing the litter box, peeing outside the box. She hasn’t done that since she used to get UTI’s many years ago. Mom checked for blood immediately but didn’t see any, so we’re hoping it was just an accident. Then last night Callie threw up a hairball. Afterwards Callie kept coughing as if something was caught in her throat. This lasted for a few minutes and then she settled down, but maybe once every hour she would start to cough again. This went on most of the night. Callie is doing okay this morning, but my Mom is waiting for the vet to open so she can take Callie in for a check up. Dad said Mom is a worrywart, but he agreed the coughing was odd and should probably be checked. I’ll let you know how it goes sweetheart.”

Breakfast was another healthy one with Lisa helping Whitey and Orangie prepare scrumptious Veggie Omelets filled with fresh tomatoes, mushrooms, artichoke hearts and a variety of herbs. Pearl was brewing the coffee and making hot cocoa for the kids, while Annabella had just finished squeezing fresh orange juice and tomato juice for Thomas.

Raven, Ms. Murphy, Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie were discussing hockey strategies at the table with K. Pete and Neekah Boo. Flower and the kids were excited about watching their aunties play in the hockey playoff games. Flower and Ralph had asked the Angels to be sure to hang the new banners at the arena that they had made for the VFP team and the KCK team.

Whiskers and Talley joined their family at the breakfast table. Talley hugged Neekah Boo excitedly and told her how proud she was of her on the great job she did flying the Robinson R-22 yesterday. Neekah Boo was beaming with well-deserved pride. Whiskers shook Neekah Boo’s tiny paw and said, “You did a great job on your autorotation maneuvers. I have to confess though...K. Pete and I were watching from the sailplane hanger, and when we heard the helicopter go silent and start plummeting to the ground, both our hearts stopped beating for a few seconds.” Neekah Boo smiled and giggled as she squeezed K. Pete’s paw.
Whiskers continued, “But I knew you were in good paws with Talley, and K. Pete and I both had complete faith in your skills and excellent judgment. Still though, it was quite a nail-biting moment for us. Talley tells me you are a superb pilot and she wasn’t worried in the least.”
Neekah Boo smiled broadly and said, “I had the time of my life! I love being a daredevil in the sky! “ Neekah Boo added as she looked at her sweetheart K. Pete, “And I’m learning the essential piloting skills from the best, so I should be able to avert disaster with lots of practice and learned good judgment skills.

Breakfast was ready to be served. Flower and Ralph were always ready to announce mealtime with the family. Everyone joined paws to give thanks for another day together, adding prayers for all their furiends and families in need, and always a special prayer for Harley and his furiend to return home safely. The family remained hopeful that Harley was doing okay and needed their daily prayers to lead him home.

Just as they all began to eat the delicious meal, Whisker’s cell phone vibrated. He excused himself when he saw it was his Mom. Whiskers returned to his family who were all waiting to hear about Callie.

Whiskers sat down and said, “Mom just got home with Callie from the vet. It’s not good or bad news. The vet needed a urine sample, but Callie had peed on Mom when she put her in the cat carrier (she always does). The vet gave Callie a diuretic and let Mom wait with her while it took effect. Mom read to Callie from James Herriot’s Cat Stories book while they waited. The vet got a urine sample, gave Callie an examination - said her heart was beating very fast, but that was normal for a frightened cat.

Callie never coughed once while at the vet! The vet asked if anything has changed at home, so Mom told her she had been gone for almost 2 weeks. The vet nodded knowingly and said Callie is probably stressed out. The vet took a blood sample too, but the results won’t be in until Monday. Callie’s urine sample did not have blood, which made my Mom very happy. The vet, whose name is Dr. Natt, weighed Callie and she has lost another ½ pound, so that was good mews.”

Whiskers’ family was very upbeat and optimistic about Callie. Angel Maggie was going to take her magic carpet to San Jose and sit with her sister while they waited for the results. Hopefully they could watch the Hockey Playoff games from there.

Flower and the kids had school today, so they were raring to go with making Get Well cards for their Auntie.

Talley sat with Whiskers in the living room for a while, reassuring him everything would be all right. Whiskers nodded and said, “I just hate it when one us isn’t feeling well. I know Callie was really looking forward to the hockey playoffs tonight.”
Talley kissed her beloved Whiskers on his forehead and mewed, “She will be there with us. Remember sweetheart, we always have our loved ones in our hearts, right?”
Whiskers nodded sadly and gave his Talley a big hug, feeling and needing the comfort from her being. He whispered, “I love you Talley. You are my rock.”

Sending soft kisses and hugs to my kitty love.

All Because of You
~~~~~
I awake each day with a smile
And greet it with a laugh;
The world is a treasure to me
Because of you.

Every time I think of something sad,
I replace the thought - with you!
My mind is instantly changed
And my heart is filled with gladness.

Every breath I take is meant for you,
I live this life surrounded in joy
And I bathe in the promise of your love,
My soul belongs to you.

Each time I see something beautiful
I want to take it and bring it to you;
My life has so much meaning now
All because of you.

We are impressed, Talley! Your blogger
came *so* close to naming all of the Zoo Crew, but he forgot one of us. (More, if you count the Angels, but we don't.) The Zoo Crew on Cat Channel has consisted of a total of 16 cats, 5 of whom are now Angels. So, the one you forgot? ME! Kissy Catz, otherwise known as KC. Don't feel bad though. Mom has to stop and think to name all of us, too.

Just FYI, our cats who have become Angels over the past 8.5 years are: Mi Ping, Tiki, Anna, Q. Miss Millie and Jesse.

Hugs again! KC and the Zoo Crew

We just took time to read your story,
Talley. Your situation sounds almost like our Angel Tiki's, only she was lost right next door to our house. She was so tiny, scared and hungry, and she hissed at Mommy when Mom tried to pick her up. But Mom just ignored the hiss and cuddled Tiki close to her heart, and that was all it took for Tiki to become Mom's. Tiki did not live a very long life (about 9 years) because of the problems she had as a kitten. She too wasn't expected to live, and she never was really healthy. Mom loved her dearly though!

Your Dad knows that he can watch the SpaceX launches online, doesn't he? Our Mom did that. She usually does, even though our brother no longer works there. The idea of landing the rocket back on the barge is cool, but Mr. Musk was told right from the get-go that he wasn't allowing enough time for the team to write the code to make it work. For the first attempt they were told to "just hit the barge", which they did. It is surprising that this latest attempt came so close to actually working, all things considered. As we said before, Mom could tell you some things about that...

We are happy that you had a wonderful birthday! Hugs, CK and the Zoo Crew

Talley’s seventh birthday had been a wonderful
day. Talley lay snuggled in her husband’s arms as they reminisced about the glorious events. Whiskers sighed and said, “Did you ever in your wildest dreams think you’d have so many wonderful furiends? I know I didn’t. Both of our lives started out on a shaky foot, but here we are healthy, happy and in love. God has been very good to us sweetheart.”
Talley nodded sadly, remembering how very sick she was at only seven weeks old, wandering blindly until she found shelter in an empty home. Angel Sylvie and her Dad had saved her and she never wanted to look back. Whiskers’ life too had been filled with strife, being abused by some mean soul that thought it funny to hurt a defenseless cat.
Whiskers said, “I think our beginnings made us resourceful and gave us the spirited initiative to help others in need.”
Talley smiled and gave her beloved husband a deep kiss. She sat up to grab her birthday photo album from her nightstand, and then lay back down with Whiskers as they perused the photos that Flower and his sisters had mounted in the book. Page after page brought smiles and wonderful memories back to both of them. Talley pointed to the desk in their bedroom and said, “See those envelopes on our desk? I still have many more happy memories to add to my album. Oh Whiskers, I had such a wonderful time on my birthday.”
Whiskers smiled and kissed her pretty cheek. He said, “We need to decide where we want to hang the beautiful beaded tapestry that K. Pete gave you. Your brother has a real flair for giving the most thoughtful gifts.”
Talley nodded as she smiled. Whiskers said, “I love the definition of your name. It describes you purrfectly - leaping water. You are the essence of the tranquility one feels when listening to a running stream in the forest.” Whiskers closed his eyes, pulling Talley closer to him, luxuriating in the feel of her next to his body.

Finally Talley broke the silence and mewed, “We better shower and get ready for our day my love. Neekah Boo and I are going to be working on some basic maneuvers on the Robinson R-22. Neekah Boo has demonstrated a real talent for flying helicopters. Pete says she is a natural and I have to say I agree wholeheartedly.”
Whiskers held out his paw for Talley. The two kitties in love were ready for another wonderful day.

Whitey and Orangie were in the kitchen with Lisa who was showing the girls how to roast the large peppers her and Bumper had picked from the garden this morning. Lisa had a great recipe for Roasted Peppers stuffed with eggs, fresh basil and goat cheese.

Whitey had the idea to add some turkey kielbasa and garlic to the egg filling for extra flavor. Lisa said, “That’s a great idea Whitey. With the eggs, cheese and kielbasa, this breakfast will be packed with protein.

Whitey and Orangie watched as Lisa coated the large peppers with oil, placing them in the broiler oven on the highest rack. She told the girls, “We have to watch the peppers carefully. As soon as dark splotches begin to appear, we’ll flip them over then quickly remove them, cover with plastic wrap and let them cool. The steam from being in the plastic wrap will loosen the skins so we can easily peel them. Peeling and removing the seeds and pulp from the pepper is the hardest part, but well worth the effort. When we’re finished stuffing them, we’ll have a delicious and healthy breakfast that will keep our tummies full for hours!”
After the girls finished taking notes, they helped Lisa with the egg, cheese and kielbasa mixture, tossing in a few extra fresh herbs they had on hand. Stuffing the peppers was a snap. They finished up just as the oven timer rang, indicating the oatmeal bran muffins were ready. The girls thanked Lisa for teaching them this morning. Orangie said, “I think I might try cooking this for my furiend Hedley. He has to watch his diet carefully now and I think this would be wonderful for him to sample.” Lisa smiled and said, “I have a slew of healthy recipes that I’d be happy to share with you Orangie. Making a change in one’s diet is never easy, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be delicious.”
Orangie gave her pretty rabbit furiend a big hug. Whiskers came into the kitchen to refill the coffee pot. He smiled at the cooks and said, “It smells delicious in here as always. After all the great food and decadent desserts I had yesterday at Talley’s birthday parties, I probably should just have toast and coffee this morning.” The girls showed Whiskers the stuffed roasted peppers in the warming oven. Whiskers groaned and said, “Okay, maybe I’ll just spend an extra hour in the gym.”
The girls laughed happily, refilling the pot of coffee for him and asking him to take the baskets of warm muffins to the table.

Neekah Boo and K. Pete were going over the notes she had made during her first flying lesson on the Robinson R-22. Talley was standing behind them listening. Whiskers refilled everyone’s cups, as he listened in too. He smiled as he watched how serious and studious pretty Neekah Boo looked. She was an excellent student and he knew she would be a great helicopter pilot. On top of all her talents, Neekah Boo had the two best flight instructors in the world with K. Pete and Talley.

Neekah Boo was so engrossed in her notes and conversation with Pete and Talley, she almost jumped when Flower and Ralph rang the dinner chime. Neekah Boo looked up from her notes, laughing and saying, “Is it time to eat already? Time sure does fly by when you’re having fun!” K. Pete squeezed his sweetheart’s paws, as Whiskers pulled out a chair for his beautiful wife. They all joined paws to say grace and give thanks for another day together. With their heads still bowed, Talley added a special prayer for Harley’s safe return home.

Everyone enjoyed the healthy meal this morning and let Lisa know it by cleaning their plates. Lisa was delighted! Lisa, Whitey and Orangie insisted on the kitchen clean up duties this morning. The kids were ready for another exciting day at school. They were working on some new banners for the hockey playoff games tomorrow. Everyone was thrilled that both VFP and KCK would be playing. Whiskers told Talley he would meet her, Neekah Boo and K. Pete at the airfield later. He wanted to work out in their gym this morning. He said, “I caught a glimpse of the hockey menu Callie and Angel Maggie are working on for Friday. I’m going to need the extra time exercising!”

Whiskers followed Talley up to their room so she could change into her flight suit and he into his gym clothes. When they were both ready, Whiskers pulled Talley into his arms for one last kiss. He said, “If you and Neekah Boo aren’t too tired after her lessons, maybe all four of us can take the Taurus and Peregrine sailplanes out soaring. It might prove to be relaxing for all of us.”
Talley smiled and said, “That sounds wonderful sweetheart. Flying in our gliders always helps to clear my mind and I want to be sharp for the games tomorrow.”

Whiskers took Talley’s paw in his as they walked downstairs. He was so proud of his lovely wife. She was the quintessential kitty - smart, beautiful, talented, kind-hearted, he could go on and on, but what had him walking on air was that she chose him to love.

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

"To see you smile, brings happiness to me, to hear your laughter is melody to my ears and to have you as mine is a blessing."

Vroom, Vroooom, Vroooomm
11 Harley Davidson motorcycles come thundering down the highway. They are beautiful machines. They are on a special mission as they pull into Talley's driveway at the ungodly hour of 5:30 AM.

The helmets come off to reveal. Q. Lola, Zoe Monique, Angel Mallow, Cyndee, Kali, Maggie Meme, A. Beast,. K. Winston and Mojo Blackbear.
.
They get off their bikes, Taley, knows that sound. The Hairballz Rainbow Rider's are back in town.....

Zoe Monique gives her time to wash her paws, face and brush her teeth, then takes her into the living room, where the Hairballz shower her with confetti while singing...

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday, Dear Talley,
Happy Birthday to you,

Zoe Monique, snickers in her paw when she sees Sneaky Angel Mallow, snapping photos of still Sleepy Talley, who still has curlers in her hair...Talley is not gonna be happy when that photo goes viral.. Snicker..

Zoe Monique gives Talley, a big bunch of her homegrown, nip for later.

Enjoy and we hope, we made your day a little brighter.

The Hairballz Rainbow Riders get back on their bikes.

They head down the highway to their next destination, as Angels Ringo Starr and Yum Yum sprinkle Angle Dust, to protect them where ever the road my lead.

Before the family had retired to bed
last evening, Whiskers had met with Bumper and Lisa, ready to help with the gathering of flowers for Talley’s birthday. He was amazed and very grateful when his furiends surprised him in the greenhouse with a plethora of daisies, baby’s breath, green ferns and foliage that were already cut, trimmed and bundled into gorgeous bouquets, ready to be prominently placed. Whiskers threw his paws up and gave them both big hugs with many thanks. Lisa smiled and said, “Anything for your family dear Whiskers. Anything at all. Bumper and I will be happy to help decorate downstairs in the morning.”
Bumper nodded and said, “I’ll set some of these bouquets by your bedroom door, so you can sneak them in and decorate the bedroom, hopefully without waking Talley.”
Whiskers smiled and said, “That’s going to be tough, but I’m going to give it my best shot.
~~~
Whiskers didn’t need an alarm clock to get up this morning. It was a very special day for a very special kitty and he was filled with anxious joy for the happy occasion. He carefully climbed out of bed, slowly opening his bedroom door and very quietly moved the lovely floral bouquets into the room. He placed them strategically throughout the bedroom so when Talley opened her eyes she couldn’t miss seeing them. Unbeknownst to Whiskers, Talley had sensed movement in the room. She smiled when she saw her husband fussing about the room, quickly closing her eyes so as not spoil his surprise. When finished, Whiskers carefully slipped back into their bed and waited for Talley to open her lovely emerald green eyes.

Talley yawned, stretching her arms out to hold Whiskers. Whiskers was grinning from ear to ear. He said, “Happy Birthday my precious love! God gave me an angel to guide me and show me the way when He gave me YOU.” Talley smiled and gave her sweet Whiskers a deep kiss. Not only did she notice the beautiful flowers in her room, she could smell them. Talley looked around the room, her eyes wide-eyed with happy surprise. Talley exclaimed, “Oh Whiskers! The flowers are gorgeous! I love them.”
Whiskers said, “I couldn’t have done it without Bumper and Lisa. I’m so glad you love them. Now, we have a busy day ahead so we better get ready. I smell something awfully delicious coming from downstairs.” Talley smiled, taking her husband’s paw and the two kitties in love began their day.

Flower, Ralph and their sisters were up well before the crack of dawn preparing a special Happy Birthday breakfast for their Auntie Talley. Callie, Angel Maggie, Pearl and Annabella were right there with them, acting merely as supervisors.

The kids had planned the menu, printed out menus to place at each place setting and had already decorated the dining room with the festive “Happy 7th Birthday Talley” banner that they had made at school. Rosie, Tabitha, Liliana and Daisy had painstakingly set the table using the best china and crystal, with Pearl helping them to be very careful and set the place settings properly. The special birthday menu read:
~~~
WARMING UP YOUR TUMMIES - Apple Cinnamon Fruffins (French Toast Muffins) with Venetian Coffee, Earl Gray Tea or Hot Chocolate, and your choice of Orange Juice or Vegetable Juice and Mimosas or Sparkling Grape Juice.

FILLING YOUR TUMMIES - Baked Cheesy Omelets served with sausage links and Canadian bacon.

SWEET SURPRISE FOR TUMMIES - Fresh fruit parfaits layered with blueberries, strawberries, vanilla bean yogurt and homemade granola
~~~
The kids were delighted with their menu and how wonderfully their recipes were coming along. Callie and Angel Maggie put the finishing touches on the Apple Layer Birthday Cake with Spiced Cream Cheese frosting and set it aside in the refrigerator to cool for tonight. This cake was designed for apple lovers, so they knew it would be a hit with Talley and Whiskers.

K. Pete, Neekah Boo, Raven, Ms. Murphy and the Angels were putting up the pawty decorations in the dining room. The kids had prepared balloons and streamers to be hung, just needing some tall adults to put everything in place along the ceiling. Mitch and Thomas were making early morning shelter rounds and checking with Oliver to be sure all their furiends knew about the surprise dinner tonight.

Talley came downstairs with her husband, greeted with a chorus of “Happy Birthday Talley!” Talley was overwhelmed with joy as she hugged every member of her wonderful family and very special furiends. The table looked elegant and Talley couldn’t help commenting on how wonderful everything looked. Whiskers helped Talley to her seat, both pausing at the table to give Neekah Boo a warm hug and thanking her for joining them on this joyous occasion. Neekah Boo smiled and said, “I wouldn’t have missed it for the world. Happy Birthday sweet Talley.”

Talley picked up her menu and said, “Oh my goodness! This sounds exquisite. The kids did this all by themselves?”
Angel Maggie nodded and said, “Those kids are good enough to put all of us girls out of our jobs in the kitchen.”

The kids were beaming with pride as they brought the first course to the table, making sure everyone had their hot drinks, juices and sparkling drinks. Once satisfied, Flower rang the chime and quickly took his place at the table. They all joined paws, bowing their head in a prayer, thanking God for another blessed year with Talley, ending with a special prayer for their furiends and families in need and a prayer for Harley’s safe return. Talley was overjoyed with the love at the table and she thanked everyone for making her life a dream come true.

After enjoying a delectable three-course breakfast, Whiskers announced they would all be going into the village tonight for dinner at Le Papillion, Talley’s favorite French restaurant. Talley clapped her paws together and said, “I know it’s during the week sweetheart, but I hope you made reservations for all of us.” Whiskers smiled, kissing Talley’s delicate paw and said, “But of course my dear. It will be an intimate dinner for all of us. The chef told me they will be serving a Tasting Menu tonight. We’ll be able to try a variety of their dishes.”

Callie smiled and said, “I’m always ready for French cuisine, but don’t forget we have Sport’s Day at Sandy, Ana, Haley and Angels home today. Angel Maggie and I are preparing some cold sandwiches, salads and desserts for the festivities.”
Whiskers groaned and asked, “What are you girls making? We don’t want to ruin our appetites.”
Flower smiled and said, “We won’t ruin our appetites. It’s a long time between lunch and dinner.”
Angel Maggie laughed and said, “We’re making three types of sandwich wraps. Let’s see... she powered up her tablet and read, “We’re making Thai Chicken Wraps with sliced chicken breast, spicy peanut sauce and mangos in a lemon grass tortilla wrap; a Shrimp Wrap with bay shrimp, guacamole and lettuce stuffed in a chipotle wrap and Mediterranean Veggie Wraps with roasted eggplant, red peppers, feta cheese and a variety of veggies, all stuffed in a tomato basil wrap. Sound good?”
Everyone was nodding their heads. Callie added, “Don’t forget the Potato and Macaroni Salads and Chocolate Chip cookies.”

Everyone was ready to begin their exciting day. Flower went over to hug his Auntie Talley and said, “We all have birthday gifts for you Auntie Tally, but Uncle Whiskers wants us to wait until dinner to give them to you.”
Talley hugged the little skunk and said, “You kids and my family here today are the greatest gift of all.”

The kids insisted on helping with clean up so Talley and Whiskers could begin preparing for their day. In no time at all, everyone was ready for Sport’s Day and some fun in the sun. Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie had the magic carpet ready in the living room. Climbing aboard, the family was instantaneously transported to their furiends home.

After a wonderful day spent with furiends, it was soon time to go home. They all wanted to look their best for tonight’s party. Flower tugged on his Uncle Whisker’s paw and said, “See Uncle Whiskers, I’m hungry again already.” Whisker threw back his head in laughter. He said, “You know something little buddy? I am too!”

The girls all looked ravishing dressed in semi formal dresses and the boys in their Sunday best suits. They took two cars for everyone’s comfort. Whiskers check his coat pocket, making sure he had Talley’s gift. He smiled and said, “Okay, let’s get ready to celebrate the birthday girl.”

As they pulled up into the Le Papillion parking lot, Talley commented, “It looks so empty here tonight. That’s very odd.”
Whiskers smiled and said, “It is a weekday. I didn’t expect it to be too crowded.”
The maitre d' welcomed the family and took them to their table, pausing to say Happy Birthday to Talley. Talley thanked him and whispered to Whiskers, “We’re the only patrons in here tonight. How is that possible?” Whiskers just smiled and gave his beautiful wife a soft kiss. As the menus were passed around, everyone saw something they wanted to try. Neekah Boo was delighted with the fine choices on the menu. Since it was a Tasting Menu, they would all get to sample a variety of courses.

Just as they were enjoying their drinks, the parking lot begin to fill with car lights, one after another. Puzzled, Talley looked up when she heard voices she recognized. In walked Bobby, Storm and Inky with Chloe and Esmeralda. Behind them came Theodore, Melba, Rocky and Violet. followed by Serena, Jacob, Bethany and Rachel. Talley glanced at her family and smiled knowingly.

Next through the door came Arthur, Belle and Misty with Alex, Valentina and their kits. Following close behind was Oliver with Tuna, Pixie and Luna. Countless numbers of furiends entered the restaurant, shouting “Happy Birthday Talley,” as the waiters rushed around to seat everyone. Last but not least, Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie appeared with Phillip, Victoria, Alice, Jack, Carlos, Hal and several of the pups.

They all carried letter envelopes with them, setting them on a table at the restaurant entrance. K. Pete, Neekah Boo and Flower had taken the envelopes from their furiends, placing them alongside other gifts for Talley.

Talley just kept shaking her head, hugging her furiends as they came to her table, still in a surprised disbelief. When the restaurant was filled to capacity, everyone enjoyed the excellent food and attentive staff. Talley was overjoyed to be sharing her special day with so many of her dearest furiends.

When dinner was over, Whiskers stood up to get everyone’s attention. When the room was quiet, the light’s dimmed and it took four waiters to carry out the huge birthday cake with seven candles burning on it. Happy Birthday was sung by all and Talley easily blew out her candles, not forgetting to make a wish first. The room was filled with a thunderous applause. After the cake was cut and everyone had a piece, Whiskers nodded to Flower who presented Talley with her first gift. Flower smiled and said, “Ralph, Timothy and all our sisters helped make this for you Auntie Talley.” Talley opened the box to find a lovely photo album titled, “Happy 7th Birthday Talley! You Are Loved By Many!” On the cover was a photo of Talley and Whiskers on their wedding day. Talley opened the album to find it empty of pictures. Not wanting to appear ungrateful, she began to thank the kids for the beautiful gift.

Flower laughed and said, “Auntie Talley! Aren’t you wondering why the book is empty?”
K. Pete, Mitch and Thomas stepped up with mounds of envelopes in their arms. K. Pete smiled and said, “We asked our furiends to bring a single photo of their most memorable moment with you. Flower and the kids made the envelopes to size, so we can easily place all the photos in your new photo album.”
Talley was dumbfounded. She opened a few of the envelopes and tears began to stream down her cheeks. The envelopes were filled with photos of her with furiends during key moments in their lives. Flower was proud of his picture taken while they were working on “Talley’s Toy.” Neekah Boo had given her a picture of Talley, K. Pete, Neekah Boo and Whiskers, setting sail for the first time in their pocket ship. Phillip and the wolves picked out their favorite photo of the whole pack posing with Talley next to the Robinson R-22 helicopter by their cave. Many of the shelter furiends had pictures of Talley with them at their shelter homes, decorating for Christmas, building snow cat forts, swimming in the lake...the photos were endless and each one held a special memory for Talley of all those whom she had grown to love. Talley was surrounded with her loving furiends and she didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. But she couldn’t stop the tears from flowing. Whiskers held her up with his arm, as everyone came to smother her with hugs and kisses.

Soft music began to fill the room as many of their furiends danced, some continued to eat and most just enjoyed being together. Whiskers waited until he had a moment alone with his Talley. He took out the small blue Tiffany’s box with a white ribbon, from his coat pocket and placed it in Talley’s paws. He said, “You thought I forgot you when we visited New York, didn’t you? I think I saw your eyes light up when you saw this. I hope you like it sweetheart.”
Talley opened her gift and gasped. She mewed, “Whiskers! You didn’t! I love it!” Whiskers slipped on the Tiffany & Co. Pink Ladies Watch. The band was made from stainless steel, had a pink azuré dial with tiny diamonds surrounding the elegant face. It was extremely sleek and elegant, just like Talley. It fit purrfectly. Whiskers smiled, kissing Talley’s delicate paw and said, “I can’t imagine how boring and pointless my life would have been without you in it my love. Indeed, you are my soul mate, lovable partner, wonderful furiend and beautiful wife. Happy Birthday my darling!”

Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs on a day that’s special to many of us. ♥

Waking up in bed this morning with his beautiful
Talley in his arms was the answer to Whiskers most fervent prayer. Whiskers said a silent thank you to God for making him the luckiest tom in the world. Talley lay fast asleep in her husband’s arms as Whiskers watched her, feeling the love in his heart about to burst. Whiskers gently touched her soft fur with his paw, memorizing each strand of fur on her beautiful face. He wanted to always be able to close his eyes and easily see her face. That was what kept him going when they were apart.
With her eyes still closed, a slight smile appeared on Talley’s rosy lips. She snuggled deeper into her husband’s arms and mewed, “I never want to wake up without your arms around me.” Whiskers pulled his kitty love as close as possible to his body without hurting her delicate frame. He said, “I feel the same way my love. You are and always will be the world to me.”

Whiskers and Talley relaxed in bed a while longer, chatting about the wonderful homecoming yesterday and how important their families were to the happiness in their lives. Whiskers smiled and said, “I’m so glad to see Neekah Boo is spending more time with all of us. I can’t remember ever seeing K. Pete so happy and relaxed at the same time. Neekah Boo is good for him and I can tell he is good for Neekah Boo. I’ve always worried about the chronic pain she suffers from, ever since I’ve known her, but she seems like a new kitty when she’s with K. Pete.”
Talley smiled and nodded. “I know,” she said. “I couldn’t be happier for the both of them. And my brother is such a gentle cat. I love the way he takes such good care of Neekah Boo, always anticipating her needs.”
Whiskers gave Talley a deep kiss and said, “I hope you don’t feel as if I neglect you sweetheart. I would move the sun and the moon if I thought that’s what you needed.”
Talley smiled and mewed, “I know you would my darling. That’s what love is all about. I’m just ecstatic that my brother found love with such a sweet girl as Neekah Boo.”

Whiskers kissed Talley once more before saying, “Let’s get up to shower and get ready for our day. I can hardly wait to run a brush through your gorgeous fur. I really missed doing that every morning.” With that said, the two kitties jumped out of bed ready to start a wonderful day together.

Callie and Angel Maggie were delighted to be back together in the kitchen. The girls were preparing delicious omelets with fresh peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms and onions from the garden, courtesy of Bumper and Lisa. Callie could hardly wait to get out the blender and whip up some power smoothies for everyone. Lisa had especially picked and cut fresh sprouts, wheat grass, strawberries, blueberries and blackberries for the shakes. Annabella and Pearl were slicing up honeydew melons, a pineapple and bananas for eye and tummy appealing fruit plates. Callie looked around the kitchen as the girls worked and said to Angel Maggie, “I missed cooking healthy meals for our family. My Mom told me she tried cooking healthy meals for her family when she was visiting them, but they weren’t too receptive to trying different foods. If a meal didn’t have lots of salt and butter, they snubbed their noses at it.”
Angel Maggie laughed and said, “Yes, I think we’ve trained our family well. Not that we don’t cook lavish dishes on occasion. Which reminds me, the kids have asked me if they can get up early tomorrow to prepare a special breakfast for their Auntie Talley They’d like to surprise her for her birthday.”
Callie clapped her paws and said, “That’s wonderful. We’ll get everything ready for them.”
Lisa overheard the conversation and said, “Whiskers has asked me to meet him in the garden later tonight to pick some flowers for floral bouquets to decorate his bedroom. He’d like to surprise Talley before she wakes up. I’m so excited!

By the time Whiskers and Talley came downstairs, most of the family were already seated at the table enjoying their hot coffee, tea and hot chocolates. Whiskers pulled out a chair for Talley, stopping to give the kids warm hugs before sitting down himself. Annabella brought out a tray filled with glasses of tomato juice, a favorite of Thomas’ that was fast becoming a favorite of everyone. Seated next to K. Pete, Neekah Boo was all smiles this morning, looking lovely and radiant as always. Whiskers commented to Neekah Boo that sailing must be very therapeutic for her health. Neekah Boo smiled and nodded, looking at K. Pete with love in her eyes.

Raven and Ms. Murphy had finished checking the shelter cams on their laptops. Raven said, “There aren’t many of our shelter furiends left. It almost looks like a ghost town. All our furiends sure have down a nice job leaving their dwellings spotless. We’ll just need to put a few new armoires and basic necessities for any future occupants.”
K. Pete nodded and said, “Bobby, Inky and Storm are already working with Flower, Ralph and Rocky on the new furniture. We don’t want to add too much just yet to the empty shelters. It’s much more personal to do it as we go along. We never know whom our next guests might be and what they’ll need to be comfortable.”
Everyone smiled and nodded in agreement at K. Pete’s thoughtfulness.

Callie poked her head from the kitchen, signaling to the boys that breakfast was ready. Flower and Ralph loved sharing the honors, as the two boys rang the chime. The family sat down to join paws and say Grace. K. Pete added a special prayer for the newest angel in Heaven and very dear furiend, sweet Angel Chyna and her family. K. Pete ended with a special prayer for Harley and his furiend to return home safely. A solemn amen was recited around the table.

As the plates were being filled with the delicious cuisine, Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie told the family that Angel Chyna was adjusting nicely to her new wings. It would be hardest on her family on earth, but they would be there to comfort Angel Chyna’s family with plenty of angel dust sprinkling in the coming days.

Talley told Angel Maggie that Phillip and Victoria had been delighted with the biscotti made with maple sugar and Victoria had asked for the recipe. Angel Maggie grinned proudly and said she would send it to her today.

After an enjoyable start to the day, everyone pitched in on the clean up. Pearl and Annabella finished getting the kids ready for school, while Mitch warmed up the truck for him and Thomas to take the kids to school with them. Whiskers pulled K. Pete aside and asked him if he thought Neekah Boo could stay over to celebrate Talley’s birthday tomorrow. K. Pete smiled and said, “I’ll ask her Whiskers. Tell me, do have something special planned?”
Whiskers whispered, “I’d like to take us all into the village for dinner at Talley’s favorite French restaurant. She said she didn’t want us to fuss over her birthday, but I have a few things planned. I might need you and Neekah Boo to distract Talley for an hour or so today.”

K. Pete nodded and said, “No problem brother. Don’t forget tomorrow is Sport’s Day too at Sandy, Haley, Ana and the Angels’ home. I can get Angel Maggie and Callie to ask Talley for help in preparing a special dish to take.”
Whiskers winked at his brother before running off to find Talley. He was giddy with the excitement of planning his wife’s special day. He wanted every day to be special for his precious wife, but her birthday had to be extra special. Whiskers almost bumped into Talley coming around the corner. Talley had a light jacket for her husband and said, “Let’s go check the shelters and make lists of everything we think each shelter might need for future residents. I’ll race you down to the boathouse!” Talley sped off like a gazelle with Whiskers working hard to keep close behind. Whiskers laughed thinking, with Talley in front of him, he could chase her to the ends of the earth and back!

Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs, my precious darling.

My Heart And I ♥
~~~~~
If my heart could speak
Then what would it say
Would it answer the questions
I ask it each day

Would it confirm to me
What I know to be true
That I was not alive
Until I laid eyes on you

Would it tell me that we
Are two halves of a whole
And that in your eyes
There lies my soul

Would it explain all things
But especially this
Why I become hopelessly
Lost in your kiss

Would it tell me that I
Had been travelling through
Lonely oceans of time
Before I found you

Would it tell me the reason
I carry a flame
That will only ignite
To the sound of your name

Would it explain me to how
You light up my day
And warm up my nights
With all that you say

Or would it simply confirm
What I know to be true
That it and I
Are in love with you
