How We Met

I went to the pet store (where we got Tigger and Leo) and in the cage were 8 kittens and he screamed the loudest and he looks so much like our Timmeh. He reached out his paw and grabbed my heart.

188 HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY LUCAS FEB 27
stop by Holly's page #59878 and leave us some ideas for a caption for her new St. Patrick's Day photo. We don't have a prize to offer this time, although Haylee suggested that we could give Wally to someone as a prize! Of course, she added that he wouldn't be much of a prize. The Gang are a typical family--lots of squabbles, but lots of love. We look forward to seeing what you all come up with for caption ideas. We'll announce the winner on St. Patrick's Day. Sorry for our lack of blogging lately...our secretary Mom has been busy with other less important things! Hugs and Purrs, The Green Mountain Gang

Hello my darling nephew...
I just had to laugh this morning about you stealing that piece of cheese off of your human brother's sandwich. Only you dear Lucas can get by with that. Can you believe that mom had a whole blog done that I dictated to her and we were going to edit it and mom hit the delete instead? Mom rolled her eyes and was decent enough to be embarrassed by that. Duh! She is laughing and shaking her head in disbelief. She has to go and turn in that dratted paper proving that she has gone job searching today. She is more in the mood to stay home. She has to go and fix hamburgers for lunch. Mom likes making apple pies. Says that they are fun to make. We have big apple orchards in Erwin, TN and also in Chilhowie, VA and mom and grandmom missed both of the festivals! As much as both of them love apples and they missed them! Humans. Timmeh takes those long baths to be nice and clean for me. Just be patient sweetheart. Things will hopefully change for the better when you get older. Believe it or not Trace doesn't even remember that they are his brothers. Mom won't let them together unless supervised. Trace was three weeks old and sick when his mom left him. You would never know it now! I am always here for you dear. I love you. Love always your Aunt Snuggles

Hello my dear nephew....
Oh Lucas my dear. Sometimes we try too hard to prove ourselves sweetheart. I don't know why adults are that way. My three little brothers are trying so hard to prove that they are good boys and they are. For some reason(s) adults ignore kits trying to win approval. You should see Rhudy. He is just like Timmeh. Ignores all three of them and will sometimes hiss at them. It makes me so sad. Guess that is just the girl in me I see what you are doing and I am okay with it. I think that it is cute and funny too. Chase and Tigger love to tear up toilet paper and open drawers to explore and often fall behind the one in the bath. Mom has to rescue them and she usually falls on her rump laughing as she holds the two imps. It is just mischief and curiousity. She knows that. Just be more patient with Timmeh and just don't try so hard to win his approval for one you will do something that will get his attention love, and he will not ignore it! Patience is the word for both of you. I saw you dressed as a vampire. You look cute. Mom did an Imikimi of me as a ghost of all things. I glad that she couldn't find the witch that she had in mind! Tehehehe! She will post it if she can remember what file that it is in. I will definately tell Trace, Chase and Tigger and Bandit hello. Smokey was down earlier and she left a great big hello for you. Did you and Chase have fun with Baby Sissy? I bet you did! Smokey told us she saw two little ones having an absolutely wonderful time. It made her happy to see. I must go and don't worry none about not being able to post me when Timmeh writes! You just write me yourself. That we can talk confident like. It stays between us. I love you my sweet nephew. Love your Aunt Snuggles

Dear Lucas, It's me Tigger's girl Talley,
Hey!!!! We saw you flying with baby Sissy, and Chase. We waved and shouted. I love your vampire costume it was great seeing you. Pete is trying to set up a date for all of us to go to Blarney's Pub for dinner and then come by Timmeh's Cinema to take in a movie. I'm asking Tigger, Starlight will be asking Leo, Ms Murphy will ask Buddy, and I'm thinking maybe Sissy and you might want to be a part of the evening? Please let me know, We're thinking maybe next Saturday evening. Does that work for you? Hope so, Well dear friend, I'm wishing you, sweet dreams, and please give your whole family huggs and purrs from all of us

Hi Lucas
Wow your mom paints? That is fantastic. Momma says that she really admires artists, especially since she has no artistic talents at all. Its starting to get cold here too, but not enough to turn on the heat yet. Momma and me keep saying our prayers that your mom and Snuggles' mom find good jobs real soon. Momma knows how scary that is. I know that if they could see in to your momma's and Snuggles' momma's hearts that anyone would hire them in an instant. Have a great week-end buddy.

Dear Lucas, It's me Tigger's girl Talley,
I think your picture in the green bag is so very cool. Do you love playing in bags as much as I do. Dad uses cloth bags to bring the groceries home and I jump in as soon as they're empty. Then I hide in there until another kitty walks by and jump out to surprise them. .... Well, I better say goodnight, but remember, we are always here for all of you. Your mom knows how to get in touch with my dad and she can write any time. Hugs & purrs to you, please give our love to all of the family. Your friend, Talley

Hi Lucas!
I would love to come over and play with your furry mice! Momma got me a white one at Pet Smart and he has feathers for a tail and I always play with him and bottle lids! Momma laughs at me but loves to watch me play. I hope that the next time she goes to buy kitty food she gets me another mouse! I told her I want a gray one. Looks like momma is going keep my two brothers. Chase and Tigger. They don't know that I am their brother since they hadn't seen me since my fur mom left me behind when she moved them! I am bigger and Rhudy thinks I am a nuisance. Snuggles has finally quit the hissing so I am making head way here. Momma has to look up a job sight and eat before she goes so I have better get off. You can safely bet that I would love to come and play with you. Love and purrs Trace

Hi Lucas!
How are you today? I am catpaigning for ACOTD and wanted to take this opportunity to raise awareness of FIV. I have just recently crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge in June of this year due to complications from FIV. I was FIV positive, but was able to live for 6 years with few problems. What happens with FIV is that it breaks down the immune system and the body cannot fight off bacteria that a normal body would wipe out easily. FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus and is similar in some ways to HIV, but in others, is very different.

Humans cannot get FIV, it is only spread to other cats.

FIV is spread through bite wounds from an infected cat, however a pregnant FIV cat can spread it to the kittens in the womb.

There is no cure for FIV.

A cat that is FIV positive may not show any symptoms for a number of years.

When symptoms do show up, they can include weight loss, gingivitis, stomatitis (mouth sores), digestive trouble, kidney trouble and other signs throughout the body.

There is a vaccine available, however it does not cover all strains of FIV and cats that have been vaccinated will show a false positive, meaning the test will indicate it has FIV even though it doesn’t.

Cats kept indoors are much less likely to be infected with FIV.

Cats should be neutered, unneutered male cats are more aggressive, they get in more fights and are at a much higher risk of getting FIV.

FIV-infected cats should be kept indoors, they should be fed a balanced diet, should not eat raw foods such as meat and eggs and should visit their vet for wellness checks.

We got most of this info from Cornell’s site on FIV and from Wikipedia and from information our vets gave us.

I just wanted to try to keep kitties from getting FIV and to encourage people to give FIV kitties a chance.

Mom took a lot of pictures of me because my time was limited. If you like, you can see my scrapbook at 14037. You all have a wonderful day.
