Hey Zippy! Guess what!
It's RAINING! It's Pouring! And Mikey is snoring (giggle). I was watching a squirrel out the window this morning, and the grass is starting to turn green again. Doesn't take much!

Last night Mom put a new blanket on the big bed. It's thicker than the empty duvet cover she had on there all summer, and I liked it! Instead of sleeping down by her feet, I slept right up beside her on the part of the blanket that was folded over. Mikey looked pretty comfortable too. Now we have the windows open and the fresh air coming in.

Hey, Mom is proud of herself all over again. See, for a long time when she turns the washer on "warm" we'd hear a sound like the washer makes when it's swooshing the clothes around. Except the noise would come from the water heater, while the washer was still filling up. Set the washer on "cold", everything was fine. On "hot" everything was fine, too. When the Township came & flushed the water mains in the spring, it stopped for a couple of days. So that's what gave Mom the bright idea to flush out the water heater but after she did, the noise still happened. Anyway, she put a load of laundry in today and set it to "warm" and NO noise! Maybe it had something to do with the drippy bathtub. Anyway, paws are crossed that the noise stays away.

Eww, I'm glad your Mom hasn't had Pine-sol for a long time, I remember ... or rather Mike & Evie remember ... learning in Cat College that Pine-sol can make kitties really sick if they get any on their paws & lick it off. I just double checked to make sure they remembered right, they ARE getting kind of old, you know. But they did remember right, and it sand the same with Lysol or pretty much anything ending in -sol or with any ingredients with "phenol" as part of the name. So ewww on that lady who bathed in it!

Nope, guess just because stuff is old doesn't mean it's collectors items. Mom is going to go through the records again to keep out some that she wants, she was going to sacrifice those ones if they'd been worth anything to collectors but since they're not she'll keep a few of them. Then there are ALL the CD's that Big Bro Joe left behind, something like 3 boxes of them. she'll put them in alphabetical order so if she goes to the flea market or puts them on eBay they'll be easier to look through to find a certain one.

Now let's get ready for that big grand opening of the Sanctuary! It's almost time! -- Moj

Hi A Gracie!
Jakar and I are here playing poker and we brought some nachos with guacamole and pitchers of frozen kittiritas. Are we winning? Sure hope so. I could use a mew diamond bracelet.

Not to worry, I brought my pink and green pjs and am staying over and planning to tuck you in tonight. I don't want your mom overdoing it after all those eye machines and the puff. Let her rest and we sure do hope the kitchen and laundry room floors dry out, that sounds like it was pretty awful for mom to have that happen tonight.

Oh Bummer to hear BIP will be over Sept 8 or 9, that's none too far away. Only this week and next for us, is that right? Hope some of the contestants can end on a happy note as they go back to their regular lives.

Yeah, mom loves to putter in the fishie tanks and water garden. She doesn't dig in the water garden but plants things along the edges. She planted some Water Wisteria the other day and some four leaf water shamrocks. She had never seen those before. In the big fishie tank, we have real plants but not in the 29g; those plants are plastic, but the fishies don't seem to mind.

Have a good evening! Hope no more crappy stuff happens to mom! Big hugs!

Hi A Q Gracie, & Family, It's Talley,
COTM DAY 28
We have a short blog and a long poem today.
I wanted to mention another way to help shelters. It’s something that dad has been doing for quite a while, and we almost forgot to mention it to you. It’s easy, doesn’t cost anything and provides funding for almost any charity that you can think of.
Most of us order things from Amazon, and they have a program called Amazon Smile. You sign up, and then whenever you make a purchase a, small donation is made to the charity you selected.
The small amounts add up, our local “No More Homeless Pets’ told us that they receive almost two hundred dollars a month.
Just a thought, and now our poem....
WHY OWN A CAT
There's a danger you know.
You can't own just one, for the craving will grow.
There's no doubt they're addictive, wherein lies the danger
While living with lots, you'll grow poorer and stranger
One cat is not trouble, and two are so funny,
The third one is easy, the fourth one's a honey
The fifth is delightful, the sixth ones's a breeze.
You find you can live with a houseful, with ease.
So how 'bout another? Would you really dare?
They're really quite easy, but Oh Lord, the hair!
With cats on the sofa and cats on the bed,
And crates in the kitchen, its no bother, you said.
They're really no trouble, their manners are great.
What's just one more cat and one more little crate?
The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty.
The floor is all footprints, the furniture's dusty.
The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care?
Who minds a few noseprints and a little more hair?
So let's keep a kitten, you can always find room.
And a little more time for the dust cloth and broom.
There's hardly a limit to the cats you can add
the thought of a cutback, sure makes you feel sad.
Each one is special, so useful, so funny,
The food bill grows larger, you owe the vet money.
Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay,
Except other cat folks, who live the same way.
Your lawn has now died and your shrubs are dead, too.
Your weekends are busy, you're off with your crew.
There's cat food and vitamins, grooming and shots
And entries and travel and motels, which cost lots.
Is it worth it you wonder? Are you caught in a trap?
Then that favorite comes up and climbs in your lap.
His look says you're special and you know that you will
Keep all of the kittens in spite of the bill.

Late evening is awful, you scream and you shout
At the cats on the sofa, who refuse to get up.
The cats and the cat shows, the travel, the thrills
The work and the worry, the pressure, the bills.
The Whole thing seems worth it, the cats are your life.
They're charming and funny and offset the strife.
Your lifestyle has changed, things just won't be the same.
Yes, those cats are addictive and so's the cat game!

Hiya Gracie
Well, the comic books were mostly ones that Big Bro Joe left behind, so they were mostly Marvel ones. Mom used to mostly have DC's, some of the Harveys & Gold Keys, Archie of course.

Well, we hear that Angel D'bo's Mom isn't quite as healthy as ours, so we really need to keep that Angel dust comin' for her.

Gracie! Your Mom's teeth actually FIT!! Mom has new chompers happy dance! Maybe she's not havin' such a great day today, but that's one hurdle done at least. Sturgeon pizza, here we come!! Gotcher moon shorts ready? Let's all give Mikey a special Adoptiversary salute, just for practice. Oh MIK-eyyyy ..... -- MJ

♥ Listen up!!!! You remember that orange Tabby Tomcat that's been hanging around in our back yard???? Well, he's still here and has gained a little weight so he's not so gauntly looking. But guess what???? He finally let mom pet him about a week ago and still lets mom pet him some!!!! Mom was thrilled to achieve that. Mom also gave him a name and is getting him used to hearing it. Mom thought of a few names to fit him and has decided to call him ..... Sonnjae (pronounced Son Jay).
Mom also took lots of pictures of him and added seven (7) into my gallery.

♥ Mom called (Jazpyr's #10428 littermate sister) TOEBEE'S Momma Judy on Thursday afternoon to see how TOEBEE is. She is doing ok and continues to eat and drink water. Momma Judy did find another lump which makes two now.

♥ SAUSHA #22506 has calmed down enough as not to be so scared when mom goes in their room. She comes to mom again as she had in the past before her sickness. She loves the laser light and chases it all around in their room. Dad and mom are impressed by her fastness at it and so cute!!!!

♥ I am feeling lots better, too, and taking my Simplicef antibiotics for mom with no issues. Mom says I'm usually a good boy when taking my meds.

♥ UPDATE ON WHYSKRS #10378
Whyskrs continues to be on his diet even thru all of us that has been sick. Mom has not stopped him on that.
Since April 2, 2015 at his official weight of 25.2 lbs. he now weighed in at 22.3 lbs. on August 17, 2015.

Oh gee, Furry Godmom!
YOU have had a day and a half and it's barely half over! Come on & join the pawty, sit down & relax. Sounds like your Mom just might have had a pipe plug up or even collapse if they're that old. We had a pipe plug up once & back up into the basement when the washer emptied. The sewer was involved, how stinky! But at least it was the basement! Hope using the sinks or toilet doesn't add to it or it could be a LONG time if you have to wait till Monday. Do I dare say it's a silver lining if your Mom can't see it 100% clearly, mol? By the time she gets those new glasses, it will be ALL cleaned up!

Thanks for helping me celebrate my Adoptiversary and for that great serenade. It's true, we really are all family and CC is a great example of that.

I can't believe it was eight years ago today I found my forever family and spent that very first night snuggled up with Mom & Dad. That day also made it possible to find this awesome CC family and my forever love Lady Dolly too. What a lucky tom I am!

I'm going to enjoy snuggling with Dolly under the orange blankie you brought, the days are definitely starting to get colder as of today. Molly Rose is trying to hit the Garfield pinata and ... oh, I think she got it <WHAP!> Scramble!

Let's start cutting the 1000 layer orange roughy creme Moonpie cake. Love the salmon forming an 8! You are so creative, Furry Godmom!

Hi Purrty Girl..
You didn't think I was going to miss another full moon pawty did ya??? NO WAY, I put my paw down and refused to budge till she brought us all over!! :) Gee, we read your mom was having problems again, I hope she is doing a little better today, you best give her some hugs & kitty kisses from me, you know how much she likes those!!MOL!!!
Ih Gracie you should see how much fun Dot & I have been having in the backyard, we chase each other all over the place and I have "treed" her several times, although my rear-end doesn't want to leave the ground, mom says I do a little bunny hop and give up after that, so I guess tree climbing is just not for me. :(
Mom cannot believe what is going on in BIP, every week she just shakes her head.
We love all the aquariums that you installed sweetie, you did a great job!!!
Mom and Dad are finally going to have a little vacation at the end of September, mom is thrilled to have two weeks off, course that means our mews will go into the trash, unless she can get her mew Kindle figured...OK I really hope you are not holding your breath!!!MOL!!!
I brought us some Irish coffee's and giant cream filled mint iced Doughnuts, wanna paddle out with me, of course I am heading for that sunrise!!!

Hi Gracie
They went to the fair last night. Tonight the niece went with one of her friends and they do go on the rides.
Mom had her cheesy fries (Bacon was extra so she passed on it) and funnel cake au natural, MOL. She saw that maple bacon ones were available so that's what we had. :)
I hope your mom is feeling better tonight and that the eye doctor can help her tomorrow.
The sanctuary is amazing! It was sure a labor of love from all of us.
I will be offline tomorrow since Mom will be gone till late. I will be there on Caturday, I wouldn't miss that, no siree!!!
See ya then!
Love,
Sakura

Hi A Gracie!
YEP we sure did have quite a pawty yesterday and we were rock and rollin' all night long. In fact, mom hasn't taken down my birthday pic. She thinks it can wait until tomorrow. That is so cool you are putting fish tanks in the kitty sanctuary; they are so peaceful and relaxing to watch. Mom loves hers and likes puttering around in them. It relaxes her and she likes nurturing living things.

I have some leftover 1000 layer cake, do you want some? It hasn't fallen over yet. Angel Elmie and Angel Pouncer did a super job making it.

I think I need to put my blogger to bed; her eyes are closing as she types. She can't wait to hit the hay. First she wants to read some spoiler for the BIP show. It won't be on much longer, will it? Summer is coming to an end so quickly.

Dad is still digging up the yard but told mom it will be done tomorrow. Then Saturday he's meeting brother at the rental house then he will go back to Indy with brother and stay over until Sunday. So it will be an all girls' weekend...well, and Jax.

Have a great evening! Big hugs!!

Hi Zippy!
I don't think Liquid Wrench is quite like airplane glue, but I do think you're supposed to use it in ventilated areas. It stinks! But it helped Mom get the diverter off ... actually the problem was with the dumb little sleeve that you have to take off to even GET to the diverter, the diverter itself actually came off way easily! And Mom used the shower this morning and everything was A-OK!

Yep, everyone who worked on the Sanctuary sure does rock & roll! What a great place, I can hardly wait for the big grand opening on Saturday!

Mom went to Krazy Bob's with the records & comic books and came back with the Dad's records & the comic books. Krazy Bob said he couldn't pay her very much for them and told her that she should try the flea market. FLEA market?! I don't want Mom to buy any FLEAS!!

It's supposed to get colder overnight and be raining by tomorrow, so Mom is going to go ride the putt putt and give it a good bit of exercise while it's still nice.

Hope your Mom's brain has stopped shrinking & she's doing okay today! -- Moj

Hi Angel Queen Gracie and family!
Another hot day for us here- in the mid 90’s today and tomorrow and then it will start to cool down. Mom took Callie and me for our stroller walk early this morning. We had the trail to ourselves, when we saw a small doggie coming towards us, just trotting along by himself. He wasn’t barking and his tail was wagging. Mom was relieved to see he had a collar. Mom always carries a leash, just in case, so she parked our stroller off the trail and went to see if the doggie was friendly enough to let her leash him. He was and while Mom was trying to read his tag, we suddenly heard people yelling for “Bella!” Yep! The doggie’s tag said Bella on it with a phone number. Mom never gets the gender right. MOL! Bella was a girl! Any way, the people yelling were on the other side of the trail. The three mile loop trail is the one we always use. So Mom had to run down a hill (with Bella) to get to the creek and yell as loud as she could - “Bella is over here!” The owners were two teenagers who had let Bella off her leash while they walked. They said Bella never goes far, but apparently she must have seen a squirrel or something interesting. They thanked Mom and put Bella back on her leash. Callie and I waited patiently in our stroller, praying that no one would come by and cat-nap us! Mom assured us we were always within her eyesight. We had to turn around and hurry back home because it was warming up and Mom still needed to take our neighbor Abarna out for a stroll. Whew! What a morning! This will be a great day for cat napping.:)

Wow! You and your furmily did a terrific job with the gorgeous aquarium for the Kitty Shelter. The pictures in your gallery are beautiful!

We hope your Mom and the kitties are doing well. Hopefully they're not getting the hot weather that we are. Give them all big hugs for us sweetie!

We left a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

“She hops expectantly into the sink. I turn on the tap for her; she laps without a glance in my direction, like a duchess so used to being ministered to that she no longer notices the servants and sees only a world where objects dumbly bend to her wishes, doors opening, faucets discharging cool water, delicious things appearing in her dish.” =^.^= - Peter Trachtenberg, On The Love of Cats and Persons

Hi A Q Gracie, & Family, It's Talley,
COTM DAY 27
Today we’re going to discuss a very serious subject; Lost Kitties and how to find to find them. I hope you never need this information!
Top 10 Tips For Finding Lost Cats
1) Not all missing cats are lost. Cats are notorious for hiding in impossible places. Before you assume kitty is missing, make a thorough search indoors. ( I once spent the entire day in mom’s lingerie drawer)
2) If you know your cat is missing, grab your cellphone with a photo of your cat uploaded, flashlight and treats and head out. Wear comfortable clothes and comfortable soft-soled shoes. Hit the streets
3) While you’re searching, ask pedestrians, knock on neighbor’s doors and show the photo. Ask if you can check their garage, sheds, under the porch. To save time, multi-task during the search: leave a missing cat report with your vet, Animal Control, all the other local vets, shelters and rescue groups.
4) When you return home, leave food and water outside your door. Local TNR rescue rescues will often lend a trap. Go outside one last time to check and call your cat’s name before bedtime.
5) If you haven’t already made a missing cat poster, make one. Include: A good photograph, your cat’s name, description, any special identifying marks or collar, when last seen and where (cross street), your phone and e-mail. adding contact info at the bottom of the page cut into four or five vertical strips that can be easily torn off is helpful.
6) Enlist family and friends to help post flyers and spread the word. Have push pins, tape and a staple gun depending on the surface. The best posting spots include street intersection poles, local bulletin boards at grocery stores, library, laundromat and community center.
7) Post missing cats reports at online at Tabbytracker Craigslist, local online newspapers Use social networking like Facebook and Twitter. Ask everyone to share.
8) Visit all your local shelters to look for yourself even if say they don’t have a cat of your description.
9) If you’ve recently moved, extend your search to your old neighborhood.
10) Persevere! Cats have returned weeks and months later. Keep networking, and asking neighbors if they’ve noticed anything. Keep your flyers or posters fresh with a “Still Missing” header.
Today’s poem was selected by my dad!

I Could Pee on This
Her new sweater doesn’t smell of me
I could pee on that
She’s gone out for the day and
left her laptop on the counter
I could pee on that
Her new boyfriend just pushed
my head away
I could pee on him
She’s ignoring me ignoring her
I could pee everywhere
She’s making up for it
by putting me on her lap
I could pee on this
I could pee on this

Oh, Furry Godmom, did you SEE
the pictures that Mom Toni posted on Facebook today of my sweet Lady Dolly getting to know her new home? She was on the cat tree and curled up on the bed too. And the update on CMR today says that she was up on Mom Toni's pillow last night! I know that's where she liked to sleep at home in Washington and Arizona. I'm sure happy my Lady is doing so well & I hope that Mom Janada will rally a bit & feel well enough to see some of the pictures.

Wow, is there something going around? I've been making the stinkiest poops lately and (blush), I'm kind of neglecting to bury them sometimes. Mom thinks I'm making a statement to the outside critters that the house is MINE! I get hissy first thing in the morning and I insist on coming out of the bedroom before Mom & the Moj do, so I can check things out & make sure everything is the way it should be. A tom has to protect his family, after all!

No idea what kind of wood Dad's bedside table is, and you're right, he SHOULD have used coasters or something. But Mom could ever get him to listen. He was stubborn that way! Let's just say he took care of the things around him about as well as he took care of himself. But he loved us kitties and would you believe Mom is STILL on the big bag of kitty treats that he bought for us back in June? She doles them out way more sparingly than he did, darn it all. But we're still happy to get them, it's our bedtime routine! -- Mikey

Hiya, Gracie!
MOL, my Dad on an Angel Baseball team ... I do NOT think that crossin' to the other side has made him any more athletic. But if there is a curlin' team formin' up for the winter, I think he'd be all over that one.

Mom's gotta fly soon, she's got an appointment with Krazy Bob and the records & comic books are all set to go. She's also got boxes of DVD's and CD's, but not sure if Bob takes those. And next week she's gotta get up the guts to phone the guy Dad usedta get stamps from, there's some stamp collectin' supplies he might want, magnifyin' glasses, lights, little bitty envelopes & the like. And some stamp catalogues, most of 'em are probably so old they are just fit for the recycling bin, but if there are any he could pawsibly sell again (Dad got 'em from HIM) he might as well. Just the odds & ends, Mom is not touchin' the actual collection. Just tuckin' it away right now.

Yeah, we were sad to hear about Angel D'bo's Dad, though we gather from what we'd overhear at MHL that he's been kinda sick for a while & the ambulance has hadda come for him a few times. Still, we're sad for Mom Carole, we sure know how it is. Even if ya know it's probably comin' you are not quite prepared when it does.

Gee, Gracie, you sure YOUR Mom wasn't sniffin' Liquid Wrench yesterday? I don't know what it was you saw in my gallery, but I have no pizza there. Maybe Squeeve came along & ate it, mol. Speakin' of pizza, tomorrow is Mikey's adoptiversary and the next day is the Sturgeon Moon! How's about we cook up a bunch of Sturgeon Pizzas?

Gracie, your Mom is worryin' me and I am bringin' her some special eyedrops laced with Angel dust. I'm tellin' ya, she might hafta break down & go see the human vet after all! -- MJ

It’s hard for mom to believe I am turning six years old today - - she still thinks of me as a kitten - - the years have certainly flown by and we have seen many changes come, too. I am so thankful for my furriends on CC and that our community is still together!

Let’s take a moment in quiet reflection for our dear furriends and their pawrents, hurting, ill or in need, and say a little blessing, then enjoy some BBQ and a big piece of cake!

The fish tanks look just smashing in their rooms! All those colorful fish will draw quite a crowd. :) I really like the pink sand. Big Ugly is pretty cool!
Mom didn't get anything done today so the orbit chair pic is still to come.
How about we make our visits and then after I have some maple bacon funnel cakes and lemon shake ups. We'll take some to the birthday girl. :) They're fresh from the fair.

Hi Furry Godmom!
Oh, Mom is in the groove today alright! She got that bathtub drip to stop and replaced the tub diverter too. She is still all proud of herself, that diverter was really hard to get off. That's what happens when something sits in one spot for 31 years, mol.

Oh, Furry Godmom, Big Bro Will is watching the Top Gear where they design stretch limosines. Has your Mom seen that one? It looks like without Jeremy Clarkson they are doing a whole bunch of "best of" episodes and they are Da Bomb!

When Mom was at the plumbing supply place, after she got her diverter & seats at the parts desk, then she slipped next door to the fancy side where they have displays of bathroom & kitchen stuff. She saw the thing that she loves ... the thing that she WANTS .... it's a bathtub and shower/tub wall all in one. Heavy duty fibreglass, reinforced bottom, fits together with (this is her favourite part) NO silicone! She is so fed up with caulking around the tub we have and having water still seep under it, probably because the sock monkeys who put it in in the first place didn't do it right. No offense to sock monkeys, mol.

This unit is cheaper through them than it is at Home Depot, she would even spring for someone to install it but she'd do a lot of the tear-down herself. Oh, that thing is definitely on her wish list!

Mom doesn't remember hatch cover tables, but she Googled them and they look really hippie-ish. In the 60's Angel Grandma & Granddad had an oval coffee table with a glass cover. Under the glass, she kept three doilies that Angel Nana made and that turned out to be not so great an idea because Mom's older sister sat on the table once and because the glass wasn't flat down on the wood, the glass went CRACK!! Then Angel Grandma had a fancy coffee table, all curlecues and very shiny. Mom's sister got that one when Grandma passed because Mom knew that the four little kids SHE had at the time would ruin it in no time. Big Sister got all the nice stuff for the same reason, she had five kids but they were way more grown up than ours!

Mom is thinking that if the sander works, she should take it to Dad's bedside table. She likes the table but the top is all wrecked because Dad was always setting cups and greasy plates down on it. It's actually a nice colour underneath so she wouldn't mind sanding it down so it's ALL that colour. This is a WAY down the road idea, lots of other things to do first. -- Mike

Hi A Gracie
Today was Autumn like around here and we thought it was gonna rain, but it never did. Just very cloudy with a little bit of sun here and there.

We had to stay locked in the house all day while mom went to work and then had her DR Appt...you can read about it on the CMR!

Mom got home late and we were upset cause our dinner was late. We eat at 5:30pm and mom got home at 6pm. We gave mom funny looks and told her don't be late anymore.

She said she was sorry but her and her friend also stopped to eat dinner before coming home and we didn't get any. It was Chinese and we don't like that, so it was alright!

We are all outside right now, but we will be coming in soon cause it gets dark early now and mom brings us in when it starts to get dark so she can see us...we have a very dark yard at night.

Mom is liking her new-to-her computer desk. Very roomy with lots of room for more stuff should mom get any new stuff for it....I was already all over it and investigating it from top to bottom. I didn't jump way on top of it though, but I sniffed everything within my nose reach....have to make sure it is safe for mom you know!

My birthday is August 10, 2005...so I guess you did miss it, but that is alright. I totally understand computer issues as mom has them.

Well, I hope you have a pawsome evening!
Stay warm

♥ Well, guess I best tell you that I haven't been feeling too well lately!!!! Mom had SUSPICIONS about me so here's what happened; mom followed me all around the house when I was awake. Said she didn't trust me since I peed on the kitchen counter Monday. She followed me til I decided to use the potty box.

♥ TUESDAY morning 8/25; Mom managed to get a urine sample Monday night so she took it in to The Veterinary Hospital right after she did her morning kitty chores then came back home. Mom then left about 10:00am as she had to go clean an elderly gentleman's (Bud)home which she does once per month. Shortly after mom got home, Dr. Nancy called mom about 2:30 confirming mom's suspicion about as I do have a UTI so a bit later mom had to go pick up the antibiotic Simplicef 100mg pills. Mom had Dad kitty sit me so I wouldn't pee inappropriately.

♥ SAUSHA #22506 does good then a few days or so goes by when she will vomit so mom calls it in to have it on Record. She has one more day left on her antibiotic. Mom misses her loud purring as she rarely does that anymore.

Hi Zippy!
I think Mom is losing it, she was dancing around going "I rock and ROLL!" Translation to that is, the tub drip is no more AND she replaced the diverter so that she & Big Bro Will can have showers again. The old tired one kind of blew up this morning. We were shut out of the bathroom for a long, LONG time and then Mom went out! When she came back we were all letting her know that we were way overdue for food but did she listen? NO she did not! She said the water is turned off so cats are not top priority right now (Oh the Blasphemy, Zippy!), then she locked herself in there again. Then a few minutes later she went downstairs, turned the water on, came upstairs, looked in the bathroom and that's when the "I rock and ROLL!" started.

She did compose herself long enough to feed poor starving us at least. I don't know, I think she was locked in the bathroom with the can of Liquid Wrench just a bit too long if you ask my opinion.

Yep, water is H2O and has oxygen in it, but all I know is if there isn't fresh air ABOVE the water, or an air pump in it, things get gross pretty fast and the fish start swimming belly up. I guess maybe those little O's need to be replenished. Anyway, you kitties all did a great job on the Sanctuary's new sushi bar .... whoops (giggle) I mean big fish aquariums. I can just see the kittens jumping at the glass after those fishies now. In fact, I think I'll try it out & leap at a few fishies myself. Woo hoo! Glub glub, fishies!

It's hot again but tomorrow is supposed to be the last day. Then it's going to rain and be in the 60's even. Why, if that happens I think we all just might go out and dance in the rain! Maybe after dark, so the neighbours don't call the loony wagon, mol. It's been a long, hot, dry summer! -- Moj

According to Catster magazine, tomorrow is National Pet Day. I sure hope that Mommy will get me a pet. Maybe a goldfish. Or a cute little bunny. I would love to have a furry, cuddly bunny rabbit. But Mommy says that Casper Todd and I would pester it too much & worry it to pieces. Wonder why she thinks that?!

Happy National Pet Day!

Hi A Q Gracie, & Family, It's Talley,
COTM DAY 26

I'd like to take a moment, before we begin today’s blog, to thank every one of you, who took the time to come by and offer your support during my catpaign. I feel like I've learned a lot from all of you, and I hope I've offered you some ideas you may not have thought of before. I truly am grateful for your comments, ideas and help.
Well, tonight, I'll address a subject that I probably should have mentioned before. That is “spreading the word.” Shelters have wonderful kitties just waiting for someone to love. There are lots of people who feel lonely and troubled whose lives could be transformed for the better by a furry companion. How do we get them together? Advertising is the answer. It’s effective, but expensive. There is free publicity though, It is through the news media. It can be as simple as writing letters to the editor of your local newspaper, or it can involve establishing a rapport with local television and promoting shelter adoptions. Remember, there are lots of loving kitties available at a much lower cost than going to a breeder or pet shop. (dad has a hard time going to PetSmart on weekends because he always wants to bring all of the kitties home. The important thing though is to get the word out. People who live with pets live longer healthier lives than those who don't. Alley Cat Allies has a media primer on the website and it offers great ideas and sample letters and news releases. The address is http://www.alleycat. org/NetCommunity/Page.aspx?pid=373 . So, to get started, let's resolve to write at least one letter to the newspaper during the month of my reign.

Regarding the Coronation Ball, We still need to arrange the details with Queens,Angel Ginger and Maggie, but one thing is certain. Every one of the kitties on CC is invited to the CMR resort on September 1st, to celebrate at the Coronation Ball, There will be a speech (a very short one, I promise) and wonderful food, , and there will be dancing too. I want to purrsonally shake paws and hug each and every one of you.


And now today, something a little different:

An Old Russian Prayer
Hear our prayer Lord, for all animals,
May they be well-fed and well-trained and happy;
Protect them from hunger and fear and suffering;
And, we pray, protect specially, dear Lord,
The little cat who is the companion of our home,
Keep her safe as she goes abroad,
And bring her back to comfort us

And a poem

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray this cushy life to keep.
I pray for toys that look like mice,
And sofa cushions, soft and nice,
For grocery bags where I can hide,
Just like a tiger, crouched inside!
I pray for gourmet Kitty snacks,
And someone nice to scratch my back,
For window sills all warm and bright,
For shadows to explore at night.
I pray I’ll always stay real cool,
And keep the secret feline rule
To NEVER tell a human that
The world is really ruled by CATS!


I love you all,
Talley

Hiya Gracie!
Wow, did I actually MISS you yesterday? I've been leadin' the Hairballz, and workin' on the Sanctuary, hardly know whether I'm comin' or goin'! And I've been takin' a lot of Angel dust to Mom Janada, I see where Angel Tinker's Mom copied the latest update from Michelle onto CC/FB. Mom saw that one last night. Michelle needs some Angel dust herself!

And then Angel D'bo's Dad crossed the Bridge too! I remember hearin' at hockey about him bein' sick and havin' the ambulance come a coupla times, poor guy. It's a rough summer for Pawrents. Take care of YOUR Mom, okay?

Mom got up this mornin' & tried to have a shower, there was hot water comin' outta the tap and cold comin' outta the showerhead. Seems like that little pin in the middle they call the Diverter needs to be replaced. It was on Mom's list, but it just went way up in priority. She's never done a diverter before, Google makes it look easy & she's just glad she had that plumber out last week to fix the downstairs shutoff. The Great Google says ya don't need to shut the water off to do a diverter, but she's gonna just in case. And because she CAN!

Yep, Mom learned to drive on a big boat car! Not only did the hood go out a mile, but the two front corners were sharp and stuck out as far as the hood did. Not forgivin' if ya miscalculate while pullin' into a parkin' space between two other cars. Mom knows, she accidentally sideswiped a parked car in it once (blush). It was a nice car, though. And Mom STILL ain't really used to the cars she's been drivin' lately, the ones with hardly any back end. She always leaves way more space than she needs to when she backs up 'cause she's usedta havin' that big old trunk behind her that you can pack half the house in.

Oh cool! Your Gma was a roller skatin' carhop, you did NOT tell me that!

Mom got an e-mail that her Bob the Street Cat book is in, guess she's gonna hafta pick it up today or tomorrow. Right now she's gotta get her butt in gear & do papers before it gets hotter. Then she's gotta tackle that diverter! -- MJ

Dear AQ Gracie
Oh boy, look at those beautiful fish tanks you had designed for the new sanctuary! They are really colorful and have such a variety of all kinds of fish. It was nice of you to have one made for each of the sanctuary buildings. I know all of the kitties will enjoy looking at them. Aunt M particularly likes the high heeled tank!

Great job, and I am looking forward to seeing them in person at the opening on Saturday!

Purrs and hugs, Spanky

water fun day!
janet out of town???????what the ???????? she hasn't gone any-where but between home work and out running errands with nat. we have been leaving blogs for you daily or almost daily unless cc had them disappear again which some have gotten sick of and have deleted janet and us from their list of friends, we miss them as some were really good friends, but not much we can do about that otherwise. this likely will be the last blog as she's headed out to walk the elf hill loop east of here nearly into belchertown and back, then weeding the front flower/herb garden and shucking corn to decide whether it gets frozen on the cobb or not, as well as picking lima/string beans and what few tomatos there are as well. got hot weather headed this way all of next week with upper 80s to lower 90s and not only high humidity, but high heat indexes which isn't good for kids riding school buses and schools which don't have air conditioning! likely those will get out early around noontime she thinks as it's happened that way before. almost time to walk so onto the next blog. but before we do go we'll be down your way this weekend for the full moon party, but can't stay past some of us sun night and the other mon night due to the sleepover preparations and waterfun on wednesday. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Gracie
A box of books packed today. Mom is really cutting back on the books she's taking along. The appraisal is done so they hope to find out Thursday what the verdict is.
An orbit chair is saucer shaped and it leans back. Mom will try to take a pic of hers and send it to yours. Hers is lavender and fuzzy.
Levi is the little orange kitten at the shelter.
Mom and GGM will hit the fair tomorrow night, then Mom and GM will be gone nearly all of Friday. They will go to an appointment, then go to the game in Port Byron from there.
Love,
Sakura

Hi A Gracie!
Whew, mom got them all watched and dad didn't make too much fun of her but he's not going to watch it with her. She told him she enjoys the drama and the new guys and girls that show up and stir things up. He asked how does one "win" on that show? Mom said the ones who "win" are the ones who stay on the show and develop relationships, but they are the most boring for the viewers. Mom's favorite is Ashley S. She likes Jared too. And of course Carley. Mom is SO ready to see Joe go home. She's had enough of him.

Ah, sis didn't know mom was coming home to check on the dogs, and mom didn't know sis's class was only a shortie Monday. It is a new schedule for sis. Mom just assumed she wouldn't get out until later in the afternoon. So it was a mixup because of a new schedule. Dad is here now; and he is fixing the sprinklers in the front yard. Mom would sure like to have her front yard look nicer and can't wait to use the sprinklers.

The fishie tanks on your page are super colorful; I just love them. Are those the new fishie tanks for the kitty sanctuary? They are absolutely purrfect. Let's play "GO FISH" with them. MOL just kidding.

Have a super evening! Big big hugs!!

Hi A Q Gracie, & Family, It's Talley,
Thank you for the Peach Melba Moonpies and Peach Frappe, They were great. Pete wanted to eat them all!

COTM DAY 25
Yesterday was a wonderful day here in Jacksonville. It was 85 and not a cloud in the sky. We didn’t get any thunder boomers either. There was a nice breeze and we got to play in the screened patio while mom & dad worked in the flower beds. Dad has a couple of square foot gardens, and he took some of the tired tomato plants out and put in some lettuce, parsley, beans, and CATNIP. Mom planted flowers, in the front yard beds and down the driveway beds.

Today, I’d like to tell you about an Alley Cat Allies program that helps community awareness of the needs that stray and feral kitties have. It's called Every Kitty – Every City.

http://www.alleycat.org/EveryKittyEveryCity

This what Alley Cat Allies says about the program:
Through the Every Kitty – Every City program, we raise awareness and educate the community in targeted cities about outdoor cats, feral cat colony care, Trap-Neuter-Return, and the importance of accessible, affordable neuter services through workshops, outreach programs, and organizing.

The Every Kitty – Every City program provides individuals, groups, and veterinary professionals in the community with the tools and basic knowledge needed to serve as a community resource. As part of the program, Alley Cat Allies rallies and assists community volunteers, local groups, and private shelters to enhance their already existing Trap-Neuter-Return programs or to seamlessly launch new ones.
Alley Cat Allies sponsors workshops, open to the public, for advice and instruction on the best practices of Trap-Neuter-Return and colony care. We also recruit and help train local veterinary professionals on high-volume, low-cost techniques that will increase the availability of affordable neuter services including early-age spay/neuter and vaccination protocol. To start a program in your city, contact one of the existing programs, Or contact Alley Cat Allies!
This program was vital in establishing the TNR program of No More Homeless Pets, here in Jacksonville.

And now, a funny poem for today:

All I Need To Know About Life
I Learned From My Cat

Life is hard, and then you nap.
One day ignore people, the next day annoy them.
When in doubt cop an attitude.
Curiosity never killed anything except maybe a few hours.
Climb your way to the top, that's why the drapes are there.
Never sleep alone when you can sleep on someone's face.
If you're not receiving enough attention,
try knocking over several expensive lamps.
Make your mark in the world or at least spray each corner.
When you go out into the world, remember:
being placed on a pedestal is a right, not a privilege.

Thank you so much for your love and support! I love you all,
Talley

Hey AQ Gracie!
Yes we live in Lehigh County. The bigger area is called The Lehigh Valley which also includes Northampton County where Mom works. It wasn't Mom's ankle if was the metatarsil that had a small stress fracture probably due to osteoporosis. Mom is much older than Kelly Ripa. It was x-rayed on the 20th & she needs to keep wearing the air boot until her next x-ray on 9/10. The stupid thing is making a bump form on her shin! Not sure about the dental insurance Mom will check with her dentist when he is done. They Said she may not need insurance after getting the crowns & all. Hopefully she will just need cleanings from here on in. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. Legend

Hi Furry Godmom!
Well, did Mom ever make up for what she didn't do yesterday! She got herself downstairs and cleaned out a WHOLE bunch of stuff! She moved the photocopier and slid the little short filing cabinet that it used to sit on back under the shelves. She was going to get rid of the filing cabinet, but now she's thinking it might be a very good place to put some of Dad's stamp collection. It's fireproof, after all. Why, she dug all the way back to stuff that hasn't been touched in years and years! And ended up using the third garbage bag today after all.

She also got tired of being too chicken to call Krazy Bob, so she called him and has an appointment to take the records & comic books over there Thursday afternoon. Then she tried to call Mom Janada but got the message again that the voice mail is full. So it sounds like she`s not feeling well enough to listen to her messages, she`s probably on some pretty heavy-duty pain meds but we can send her lots of loving vibes anyway & that`s what we`re doing. They`ll always get through.

It was cool enough this morning that Mom made her fried zucchini before the zucchini started going soft. Been eating lots of veggies around here lately, Gracie. Well, SHE has. I`ve been eating my mush. Tomorrow she might cook up the green bean casserole, those green beans aren`t getting any younger. But neither is the last of the big Italian breads. Decisions, decisions. I`m glad I get to just open a can. Well, get MOM to open one.

The kitties in the pictures on my page are just models, but isn`t that cat grass planter cool? It's made from an old pallet. Boy, if we had a catio Mom would be seriously thinking about making one of those things for us!

Hey bonus, when she was clearing out WAY in the back under the shelves in the basement, she found a set of tools that Dad got at the auction years ago. It has 2 rechargable batteries with changeable sander, drill and jigsaw heads. Whether the batteries will charge up we don't know, got to try it and if they don't, then OUT it goes. But if they do, it sure does not belong stuffed in behind a bunch of stuff where we forget we have it! -- Mike
