Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
My Mom is getting ready for her trip to San Diego to visit GM, so we’re all helping her get the house ready for my Dad to take care of us. Dad can do it; he just needs lots of reminders. There are post-it notes going up all over the house. MOL!

This morning on our way home from our stroller walk, we were surprised to see Ebony and Sugar Bear sitting in our front yard! Mom put us in the house and then went next door to find out what was happening. Apparently the neighbors have a house cleaning lady who comes once a week. The cats had escaped through the screen door! The neighbor and his Mother were very upset, calling the cats in their backyard when Mom got there. They were very happy to see Ebony and Sugar Bear following my Mom back into their house. They all decided it would be a good idea to put the cats in a room when the housekeeper comes. Yay! A happy ending!

Tell your Mom we said meow. We hope you are both doing well. We always have you in our thoughts and prayers sweet furiend.

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

Three Little Cat Ghosts =^.^=
~~~~~
Three little cat ghosts on Halloween night
Saw a witch and shrieked in fright
The witch just laughed and shouted, "Boo!"
One cat ghost ran home and then there were two.
Two little cat ghosts who shiver and shook
With every single step they took.
When the door opened wide
One little cat ghost said to the other...
I'm going home and stay with my furmother.
One little cat ghost can't have much fun,
so he ran home, and then there were none.

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
My Mom took Callie and me for our stroller walk this morning, but it was so chilly outside, Mom decided to jog/walk, giving us a very bumpy ride. We felt like we were on one the hayrides at the Castle. MOL!

One of the houses on our street is decorated all out for Halloween. The house has spider webs hung all over the front yard, R.I.P. headstones, a big witch and some kind of monster standing by the door and red lights around the house that in the evening look like flames. They even have an outdoor sound system they were testing last night. It was playing Vincent Price sounds with his eerie voice and laughter and other scary Halloween sound effects. Even if it does rain on Halloween night, this house is really going to draw the trick or treaters to our street! Mom is so glad Ebony and Sugar Bear are inside.

We left a vote with purrs, hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need. We always have you and your dear Mom in our prayers sweetie!

ALMOST HALLOWEEN!

Yowling, prowling, growling cat
Why do you switch your tail like that?
Why do your eyes flash gold and green?
Could be--must be--almost Halloween!

Slinky, inky, blinky cat,
Why do you arch your back like that?
What scary creatures have you seen?
Could be--must be- almost Halloween!

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
The sun is shining today but now the weather forecast is for rain on Halloween! My Dad is happy because he’ll have more leftover candy. We’re happy because we don’t appreciate being locked up in the bedroom when the trick or treaters come knocking. The weather person is rarely accurate, so we shall see.

Last night the next-door neighbor brought over some cooked chicken his Mother had made for Ebony and Sugar Bear. She thought us kitties would enjoy some and we did! Looks like Ebony and Sugar Bear are eating better than we are. MOL!

CAT JACKS =^.^=

Do not play jacks
With the Jaguar cat -
You’ll never ever beat her.
If she don’t win,
She’ll start to whine.
If she gets an eight.
She’ll pick up nine -
She’ll say she didn’t,
But you’ll know she’s lion -
She’s such an awful Cheetah.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
We did get 0.3 inches of rain yesterday. At least the plants got some water. The sun is shining today but we are all catnapping inside. A little too chilly for us at 65 degrees.:)

Whitey & Orangie have been coming downstairs more and more. Callie is not happy with that. Callie still growls at them, but Whitey & Orangie have learned to ignore her. Whitey & Orangie still haven’t tried to venture out into the backyard, but they have been sitting by the swinging cat door quietly watching when Callie and I go in and out. My Mom is hoping they work up the courage to go through the cat door.

Ebony & Sugar Bear are doing really well in their new home. Mom went next door to visit them yesterday and they were climbing all over her. The neighbor told my Mom both cats have been exploring the house and are eating well. The neighbor is concerned with the cats running to the door every time it opens. Mom brought them “Kitty Bells” to hang on the doorknobs that she uses at our house. The bells jingle when the door is opened and we always run away from the sound. Hopefully Ebony & Sugar Bear will too.

Give your Mom big hugs for us. We always have you both in our prayers.

By the fire, like drifting reddish goldfish,
the cat dozed, curled within itself.
If, by mischance, I were to stir,
the cat might change to something else.

The spinning-wheel of ancient magic
must never be allowed to stick;
and changing itself into a princess
is, for the cat, a minor trick.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
I wanted to share with you the latest on the virtual animal shelters surrounding the home Talley and our families live in together by Angel Lake. We are preparing for another harsh winter, so we asked Thomas and his family (the skunk family you met at our house- Ralph, Rosie and Annabella) to set up a Forest Council Meeting with all the animals in the forest that will be needing shelter during the extreme weather predicted this winter.

Theodore and Rocky are the raccoon family that have been helping us gather the animals together for a meeting of the forest animals. Theodore is the father raccoon, Rocky and Violet are his kits, and Melba is the raccoon wife.

Read the story written so vividly by none other than K. Pete. He brings everything to life!

It starts below dear furiend! We hope you enjoy it. We'd like to include you in our future stories. Hopefully this will help you better understand what's its all about. We just had to share K. Pete’s eloquent story. It was too good to keep to ourselves and you have already played a big part in it!

Rocky had shared the best news imaginable!
Whiskers and Thomas returned to the house, and Whiskers took Talley’s paw, leading her inside. Whiskers asked, “Did you know this was going to happen?”
She shook her head, “I prayed it would happen and I hoped it would happen, but I didn’t know it for certain.”
Pete was in the workshop, and when he came in he was carrying the portable stretcher that they had devised to carry Thomas. He set it down in the living room and began to assemble it. They had designed it well, and it took only a few moments to for Pete to snap the braces in place and unfold the legs. Whiskers and Talley came over and the two toms got in position and lifted the stretcher. Pete said, “not too heavy, we should be able to make it with just a couple of rest stops.”
Lucy came from the kitchen and said, “That’s very nicely made, what’s it for?”
Pete explained that the trip to the cave was more than Thomas could handle on his crutches, and that they had built the stretcher so that he and Whiskers could carry Thomas most of the way.
Lucy pointed at the handles on the side and asked, “And these, what are they for?”
Whiskers said, “Ralph and Flower want to help and those are handles for them to help carry the stretcher.”
Lucy said, “Well, you could do it that way, but is there any reason why Sylvie and I couldn’t just transport us all to the cave, or close to it, if you think materializing in site of the guests might frighten them?”
Pete smacked himself on the forehead, “I should have thought of that as soon as Rocky asked if you and Sylvie would come. “
Lucy smiled and said, “It’s okay little brother. Sylvie and I will hold the handles, you and Whiskers can just hold on to the side of the stretcher and the kids can hold their handles. We’ll transport to wherever Thomas thinks best.”
Thomas had been in the kitchen getting a glass of juice, and had heard Lucy’s comment. He came over to join them. He said, “I’d like to transport to a point on the trail not too far from the cave. I think seeing us materialize would cause the creation of even more myths.

Lucy said, “That’s probably a good plan Thomas, we want the families who shelter here to understand that we’re just a family trying to help others.
Sylvie said, “Well, with that decided there’s one other thing we have to do. Lucy and I have to decide what to wear.”
Lucy said, “That’s easy, Theodore wants some angels, so let’s give him traditional angels.”
Sylvie said, “The flowing white robes and angelic light surrounding us?”
Lucy nodded, clapped her paws together and the air around them shimmered for a second and they were clothed in white robes glowing with a pure light!
Whiskers and Talley had gone up to the school, and met with the teachers, explaining to them that the kids were an integral part of trying to get the forest animals to use the shelters for the coming winter. The immediate response was that of course the kids could be excused from classes and then the teachers asked how they could help.
Talley immediately asked if they could suggest materials that they could put in the caves to help the guests learn to read. “We’ll be glad to purchase them but we’d like a professional opinion on what materials would be best.”
The teachers said that they would create a list and make it available by tomorrow afternoon. They told Talley and Whiskers that they would send for the kids right away.
The kids came to the office and were excited to be helping with the meeting at the cave. Flower asked, “Are we going to get an early start carrying Uncle Thomas up to the Cave Shelter?”
Whiskers told them about Lucy’s plan to transport them to a part of the trail close to the cave. Flower said, “Why didn’t we think of that?”
Whiskers laughed and said, “That’s exactly what your uncle Pete said.”
Raven and Ms. Murphy had put a folded blanket and some pillows on the stretcher to make it more comfortable for Thomas.

When Talley and Whiskers brought the kids home everything was ready for the trip to the cave shelter.
They gathered around the stretcher and held on with a light grasp Ralph said, “This is it Flower!”
A moment later they were on the trail leading to the Cave Shelter.
They carried the stretcher ahead and came to the clearing in front of the cave. Theodore was already there. He was sitting on a fallen log, with Rocky by his side when he saw Angels Lucy and Sylvie in their glowing robes he stood up and bowed. He nudged Rocky. Rocky said, “Good Afternoon, Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy.”
They both said, “Good afternoon, Rocky. It’s good to see you here.”
Thomas asked, “Theodore is anyone else here yet?”
Theodore pointed up, “Oliver was here a while ago, he’s gone back up to lead some of the others back here. I think we managed to let everyone know about this meeting, Thomas, and they all want to hear what you have to say. Most of them are happy to hear that there’s someplace safe for them to go if the winter is really bad, but they want to hear from you that it isn’t a trick of any kind.
Thomas nodded, and said, “I think I’m living proof, that it isn’t a trick, and Pete has a very straight forward way of telling what’s in his heart. I think we can reassure them all that there are no obligations attached to the shelters.”
Thomas got off of his stretcher and joined Theodore and Rocky on the log. Pete and Whiskers folded the stretcher and set it aside. Lucy and Sylvie said that they were going to give the cave a final check to make sure that all was in good order.
Theodore and Rocky couldn’t look away from the beautiful angels with their glowing robes, and beautiful wings.
The first guests to arrive were a mother fox and three fluffy little kits. The kits were full of energy and she had to tell them to calm down. She approached Theodore and said, “I know we’re early, but I had hoped that the kits would burn off some of their energy on the trip and perhaps take a little nap before the meeting starts. Theodore told Rocky to keep an eye on the kits and he introduced the lovely fox to Pete and

Whiskers who were seated on another log some distance away. The vixen’s (term for a female fox) name was Serena, and she said, “Pete…. I’ve heard about you, Are you the cat who flew down to save Thomas?” Pete smiled, I was one of the cats who helped rescue Thomas, but he’ll be explaining to everyone what happened. Angels Lucy and Sylvie came from the cave opening and the kits stopped their play and stared in awe. Angel Sylvie sat down on a tree stump and called them over. She gave them gentle pets and told them how wonderful they were. They stared at her wings and asked if they could touch her robe. She laughed and stroked their red fur. The boys sat quietly on either side of her while their sister crawled into her lap. A family of deer, with two fawns, a handsome buck and a beautiful doe arrived and settled in to wait. Over the course of the afternoon more than a hundred animals made their way to the clearing and toured the cave shelter. When it was time, Thomas prepared to speak. He walked on his crutches to the entrance of the cave and then turned to face the gathered animals, who sat in a semi-circle facing him. He looked around recognizing many friends and acquaintances. He spoke in a loud clear voice. “Good afternoon, I know many of you, and for those of you I haven’t met before, my name is Thomas. I was born in this forest grew up and met my beautiful wife. We have two wonderful children. The forest has always provided for us, but as you know winter is always a hard time. Last winter, particularly was difficult. The elders among us expect this coming winter to be as hard or harder than the last. We’ve all heard stories and legends of an Eden like place to the northeast. I heard from many of our wise elders that there was such a place and we’ve all heard the stories of angels who appear to help when help is needed. On my last hunting trip, I had decided to go to the river and gather crayfish for us to have for our dinner. Many of you know the place that I go to to catch crayfish. The path down the cliff to the river is dangerous, but I’ve always been careful and I even marked handholds, so that others could use the trail if they wished.”
There was a murmur of assent as many of the animals acknowledged that they had used Thomas’s path.
Thomas continued, “On my last visit to the River, I was just swinging over the edge when a Red Tail Hawk attacked me and I lost my balance. I fell down the cliff for a long ways and I landed on a ledge. I broke both of my legs in the fall, but the hawk wasn’t through with me. He attacked me again, but this time I was ready and I was

able to slash his throat and killed him. He was what I had to eat. There was a crack in the rock, where a trickle of water came out, and I was able to survive on the hawk, some ants and the little seep of water. I lasted two weeks, and then the hawk was all gone and I still hadn’t figured a way to climb back up. I never gave up hope and I prayed almost continuously that the Lord would find a way to bring me back to Annabella, Ralph and Rosie. Then when I was at the limits of my endurance, I heard a rush of wind and I looked up and a black and white cat was descending down to me.”
Several cats in the crowd whispered and pointed to where Pete and Whiskers were sitting with Angels Lucy and Sylvie.
Thomas said, “I thought it was an angel coming to take me to heaven. Then he spoke to me and told me that his name was Pete, and that my wife sent him to bring me home. I asked him if I could get cleaned up before she saw me and he told me that he was afraid that couldn’t happen, that Annabella was in the helicopter. I strained to look up and could see a big flying machine, a helicopter hovering over us. Cats aboard the helicopter sent down a stretcher and Pete helped me into and strapped me in. Then I was lifted up and into it. The first face II saw was my beloved Annabella. A pretty young kitty was flying the helicopter and she was talking to kitties at the hospital on the radio. She told them we would be there soon, and to be ready! They sent the cable back down and brought Pete back up and we flew like the wind. The doctors at the hospital mended my legs and gave me medicine to help the pain. They didn’t ask for any payment and when I was out of the hospital, they gave us the food and shelter that we needed. The only thing that they asked was that I helped them let my friends in the forest know about these shelters. I told Pete, that we had heard stories about a cat called St Peter, and do you know what he told me? He said that he wasn’t a saint; he was just a cat who had been Blessed by the Lord with very good fortune, and that he was trying to get through this life leaving behind more good than bad.” There was a murmur again and lots of the animals pointed to Pete and Whiskers.
Thomas said, In a moment I’ll introduce you to Pete and his brother Whiskers, but first I want you to know that this cave is only one of a dozen shelters that have been provided by kind animals for our benefit. The first point I want to make this afternoon, is that using these shelters does not obligate you in any way. When spring

comes, you’re all free to return to your homes in the forest or join the community in what you call Eden, and what Pete and his family call the castle community. The decision is yours. Now I’ll ask Pete Whiskers and his sister, Angels Lucy and Sylvie to come forward and say hello to you all. After that, the cave shelter will be open for you to inspect. You can ask any of any questions and we’ll answer them.”
Pete, Whiskers, Lucy and Sylvie came forward. Pete stepped to the front and said, “Good afternoon, everyone, I want to thank you for coming to hear what Thomas has to tell you. I just wanted to add that Thomas makes it sound like we did something heroic in bringing him back to his family, but the credit goes to his wife who brought herself and her children on a difficult journey to find us. She gave us the clues that we could use to figure out where Thomas might be and her determination and dedication to Thomas is what saved him. My family and I were just instruments that the Lord placed at her disposal.” There was a little round of applause. Pete continued, “Every word Thomas told you is true. There are no obligations, and if there is something that you need that isn’t in a shelter all you have to do is ask and it will be provided. Last winter, as I was sitting warm and cozy in our house I realized that the winter could be deadly to those without shelter. I couldn’t live with the thought of what could happen to the most vulnerable animals, The young and the old and I decided that our family would try to help. Some of you may know Mitch and Pearl who helped with the shelters last year, they decided to become a part of the community, others went back to the forest and I see some familiar faces. I would ask that those of you who spent last winter in the shelters, please tell your friends what it was like and that you are free to decide what life is best for you and your families. I’ll let my brother Whiskers say a few words, and then Angels Lucy and Sylvie will show you all the shelters and point out where the supplies are and how to use any of the equipment.” Pete introduced Whiskers.
Whiskers said, “Welcome all of you, I don’t have much to add, Thomas and Pete said most of what needed saying, but I do want to say, that I’m so very happy to meet all of you. Last winter we made some wonderful friendships and we hope to do the same this year. I know that some of you have expressed concern about animals of different species living in close proximity, and I say that these shelters are stocked with plenty of food, water, medicine and anything that a guest is likely to need. Unlike humans, we don’t kill for fun, Last year the animals lived in peace, and we

expect the same to be true this year. Our Angel sisters will be watching over you and you will be safe!”
Angel Lucy and Sylvie ascended into the air over the crowd and sprinkled angel dust on them.
Whiskers said you’ve received the blessing of healing angel dust and all of us give you our word, we will do everything we can to make your winter a happy and safe one. Each shelter has a phone that we will show you how to use and if anyone has any need that isn’t being met, call us. That’s all I had to say, so now Lucy and Sylvie will show you the shelters. All of us will be with you as you look them over and if you have questions stop us, ask us, and we’ll answer them. Thank you for your attention.”
Lucy led the way, and as each animal entered Sylvie gave them a gift bag. They were shown the bedding, the food lockers, the medical supplies, The kitchen and food preparation areas, and the entertainment and enrichment supplies. More than once Thomas heard someone say, “This really is paradise!”
At the end of the tour, Thomas gathered everyone outside and asked, “How many of you think you want to join us for the winter? Give us a show of paws please.”
Virtually every paw was raised. Thomas nodded, “The shelters are always open and they will be replenished every day.”
The young mother fox shouted, “Thomas, I know that we don’t have any obligation, I believe you when you say that, but how can we show our appreciation?”
Thomas said, “That’s easy, take care of your babies, love them, teach them right from wrong and have a good life!”
Pete nodded and said to Thomas, I couldn’t have said it better myself.
Thomas said, “I know you all want to get home before full dark, but before you go we just want to thank you again for coming!”
The applause started in the back, and filled the clearing. An elderly gray tabby cat approached Pete and said, “Young man, your momma must be very proud of you, does she still live?”

Pete said, “Yes sir she does and I hope she’s proud.”
The old cat gave Pete a hug and asked him if he played checkers. When Pete said that he did, the tabby said, “Stop by the shelter and let’s play a few games!”
Pete promised that he would. Whiskers, Thomas, Sylvie and Lucy were all surrounded by the forest animals answering questions and chatting. It was nearly full dark when the last of the guests left, Rocky, Flower and Ralph came out of the cave and had already made a list of what would need to be replenished. The had spent the afternoon talking with other young animals about how the shelters worked and the games and activities that were available.
Rocky ran up to Theodore and asked, “What do you think dad, how did it go?”
Theodore looked at all of them and said, I think it went perfectly. It’s a good thing that Pete and Whiskers are such good cats because they could both talk a tiger out of his stripes.”
Thomas laughed. “Theodore, it’s easy for them they both just open their mouths and whatever is in their hearts comes rolling out.”
Angels Lucy and Sylvie asked, “Theodore we’d love to have you and your family join us for dinner tomorrow night, will you do that. We’d love to meet your daughter Violet and your wife Melba.”
Theodore said, “I reckon it’s time. We’d be honored to join you!”
Lucy said, “Our house, seven thirty.”
Pete smiled, the day was perfect!

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
It was a sunny day today but we’re expecting (and hoping for!) rain tomorrow. My Mom took Callie and me for our stroller walk this morning. On our way home we saw Ebony and Sugar sitting in the bay window next door. We waved at them, but those silly cats were napping. My Mom was very happy and kind of sad from missing them too. (I’m just hoping to get a lot more attention around here now. MOL!)

Enjoy your weekend! Give your Mom a big hug for us. We always have you girls in our prayers.

ON A CAT, AGEING
~~~~~
He blinks upon the hearth-rug
And yawns in deep content,
Accepting all the comforts
That Providence has sent.

Louder he purrs, and louder,
In one glad hymn of praise
For all the night’s adventures,
For quiet restful days.

Life will go on forever,
With all that cat can wish,
Warmth and the glad procession
Of fish and milk and fish.

Only - the thought disturbs him -
He’s noticed once or twice,
The times are somehow breeding
A nimbler race of mice.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
My Mom and I running late today. We’re helping her catch up on house cleaning (yeah sure!) and she made a trip to Petco today.

Ebony & Sugar Bear are doing fine at their new furever home. My Mom got them two “Kitty Sills” for their room upstairs (per their new Mom’s request).
My Mom just got back from installing them. They came out great! We hope you had a fun Thursday!

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
Last night was Ebony and Sugar Bear’s first night in their new furever home next door. My Mom got a call from the neighbor’s Mom this morning, frantic because she couldn’t find the cats and was afraid they had slipped out the door. My Mom went over there with her flashlight and found them hiding in the upstairs closet. My Mom apologized for not warning her neighbor about cats liking to hide in “safe places” and my Mom told her to never shut an open closet door or drawer without first checking to see if a cat is napping inside. We’ve learned that the hard way with me getting locked in a closet! MOL!

We hope all is going well at home for you sweetie. Tell your Mom we said meow and give her a big hug for us. We always have you and her in our thoughts and prayers.

Here’s a scary Halloween poem about a witch and her very hungry cat! =^.^=

Old Scary Witch
~~~~~
Old scary Witch lived down the street,
Insects and rats she would eat.
Acting evil was her game,
Knew the spells to make a flame.

Old scary Witch lived down the street,
Only ate kids that were sweet.
She had this old scary black cat,
He ate other cats, that made him fat.

He ate her feet and her bat!

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
The sun is back out today, but this morning it was a chilly 47 degrees. That’s cold for us! Callie and I are catching the sunrays in the bay window. Whitey and Orangie are catnapping in the bedroom window upstairs. Ebony and Sugar are sunning in the front yard on top of their cathouse. Tonight Ebony and Sugar Bear will spend their first night in their new furever home next door. The neighbor’s Mother is just about all moved in, so my Mom will take the two kitties over this afternoon. We can tell our Mom is going to miss them, but we all know it’s for the best. Keep your paws crossed!

We hope you're feeling okay sweetie. Give your Mom a big hug for us. We always have you both in our prayers.

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

SOME HALLOWEEN CAT LUCK AND LORE =^.^=
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^
• If you kick a cat you will develop an illness in the leg used to strike out.

• The ancient Egyptians believed that cats captured the light of the setting sun in their eyes, and preserved it until morning.

• To have a cat follow you home is good luck.

• Legend has it that the Manx breed lost its tail as a result of boarding Noah’s Ark, when the door closed on its tail.

• A cat is very often kept as a lucky mascot in the theatre and disaster strikes any actor who dares to kick it!

• Never kick a cat or you will get rheumatism; never drown one or the devil will get you. Throughout the world it is considered to be bad luck to mistreat a cat. This worldwide respect for the cat is probably rooted in those ancient religions in which the cat was a sacred animal and where retribution would befall those who harmed it.

Be very wary of our feline spells & charms! =^.^=

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
Not much going on here today. Can you believe we are getting a little rain? Okay, just a light drizzle, but every drop of rain counts here in California! My Mom is moving very slow today, so we’re keeping a close eye on her.

We left a vote with soft purrs, hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need. Give your precious Mom a big hug for us sweetie. We love you guys!

The Black Cat (The facts)
~~~~~
Neither evil nor demonic,
they’re cats that are jet black.
They hold no impious malice
yet they seem to get the flack.

No hint of special powers
or maleficent intent.
Just coal black feline beauties
with a gentle temperament.

They cannot curse or jinx you
or strike you from above.
They’re magnificent half sized panthers
with capacity to love.

The occult is not their forte
they’d rather have a snooze.
Black cats are simple felines,
no need for strange taboos.

They’re overlooked at shelters
residing there for years.
They witness every prejudice
and all unfounded fears.

It’s a black cat bias syndrome
as statistics seem to show.
They’re judge on only colour
just why we’ll never know!

All the huge black cat fanatics
will clearly put you straight.
The melanistic feline
is a cat’s that truly great!!!!!

Hi Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
My Mom has the stomach flu and slept most of Saturday. We all kept her company on the bed, giving her lots of purr therapy, a sure cure for any ailment. My Mom’s tummy feels better today, but her old bones are still aching. Ebony and Sugar Bear stayed locked in our backyard all day yesterday and probably today. Mom doesn’t want to take them next door for their daily visit because she doesn’t want to spread her germs.

We had the best time with you visiting our home dear furiend. We always love having you! Give your Mom a big hug for us.

We left a vote with soft purrs, hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need. Have a relaxing Sunday with your furever family.

Whiskers and Talley woke up early to shower and
get ready for their busy day. Whiskers looked outside the bedroom window from the beautiful home belonging to Talley’s pawrents in Maggie Valley. Whiskers said, “Come over here sweetheart. The view here is exquisite. There are gorgeous trees as far as the eye can see and the sun is shining. I think we’re going to have a lovely day for our visit to K. SpongeBob’s house.” Talley was just finishing getting dressed. She came over to the window, giving her husband a soft kiss and said, “It looks lovely outside but I bet it’s a little chilly. Good thing we all brought light jackets to wear. I have a feeling we might need them.”
Whiskers nodded, giving his Talley a good morning kiss and said, “Come on sweetie. Let’s go have breakfast with the family.

Downstairs was filled with the smell of bacon and coffee brewing. Whitey and Orangie were busy preparing a light breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast. Callie and Angel Maggie were finishing up the very large pot of chicken and vegetable soup they had prepared specially for K. Spongie’s Mom Lynn. Angel Maggie said there wasn’t a better food for whatever ails you and Callie agreed. The girls had bought several Tupperware containers to transfer the soup in, so they could freeze some once they got to K. Spongie’s house. Annabelle and Pearl were preparing sandwiches for a picnic lunch at K. Spongie’s house. Whiskers thought it would be a good idea to eat outside in their furiends’ huge backyard, so they wouldn’t disturb Mom Lynn while she rested.

Raven and Ms. Murphy were helping the kids finish up the origami Get Well cards they had all made for Mom Lynn. Flower had taken some pictures he had of K. SpongeBob, Baby and their Angel fursibs at the last Coronation. The kids had each taken prints of the pictures, cut them out and made pop-up origami Get Well cards. When Mom Lynn opened the cards, she would see wonderful pictures of her fursibs pop up right out of the cards. The kids could hardly wait!

K. Pete, Mitch and Thomas were sipping coffee at the table when Whiskers and Talley joined them. K. Pete told Whiskers they would pack up the food in the van after breakfast. Neekah Boo, Angel K. Malachi and Princess Ana came to the table, all saying what a wonderful nights sleep they had had. K. Pete got up to pull out a chair for Neekah Boo next to him, giving her a light good morning kiss on her pretty cheek.

Flower and Ralph’s ears perked up when they heard their Auntie Whitey call them. Flower ran over to his overnight bag, which was sitting by the front door. He rummaged through it for a few seconds and happily pulled out the dinner bell. Flower gave it to Ralph and said, “I’ll let you do the honors today!” Ralph rang the chime, signaling breakfast was served.

The family and furiends joined paws at the table to sat grace, giving thanks for a safe trip to Maggie Valley and a special for prayer asking God to please look after Mom Lynn and her furbabies.

Everyone had good appetites this morning. Thomas and Annabella were still in awe having had their first flight on a Lear Jet, thanking K. Pete over and over for the opportunity of a lifetime. Angel K. Malachi smiled and commented, “Thomas, I have a feeling you’ll be spending a lot of time flying with this family.”

Before the meal was over, K. Pete reminded everyone to bring their luggage to the front door so the boys could load up the van. They would pack the food last and then head on over to K. Spongie’s house. Whiskers sent a text to their furiend Spongie, letting him know they would be arriving soon.

It was short ride to K. Spongie’s house. The van filled with family and furiends parked at the end of the driveway so the boys could unload all the food. Talley and Neekah Boo walked to the front door, knocking quietly. K. Spongie and Baby answered quickly and came outside to greet their furiends. After hugs all around, Whiskers asked Spongie, “Is it okay if we take the food inside and start setting up in the backyard for a picnic lunch?” K. Spongie and Baby both nodded happily, ushering their furiends inside.

Callie and Angel Maggie both put their paws to their lips, telling everyone to whisper and walk softly. K. Spongie smiled and said, “My Mom is awake in her room. She’s expecting company. Before they all went to pay their respects to Mom Lynn, the boys helped Callie and Angel Maggie put the food in the kitchen.

K. Spongie knocked softly on his Mom’s bedroom door, where she was sitting up, smiling and ready to greet his furiends. Talley and Whiskers gave Mom Lynn a warm hug. Next K. Pete and Neekah Boo went to her bedside, Neekah Boo putting a small vase of flowers next to her. One by one the family and furiends wished Mom Lynn better health in the coming days. Angels Lucy-Fur, Sylvia and Maggie sprinkled angel dust over Mom Lynn, telling her they knew she was already in good paws with Angel Wicket and his Angel fursibs looking after her.
Mitch, Angel K. Malachi and Lady Ana helped Pearl spread the afghan she had knitted for Mom Lynn, over her bed. Pearl clapped her paws and said, “It fits purrfectly!” Mom Lynn thanked Pearl and admired the fine work Pearl had done knitting the beautiful afghan.

Lastly, Thomas and Annabelle introduced themselves to Mom Lynn along with their kids Ralph and Rosie. Standing behind Thomas was Flower, Liliana, Tabitha and Daisy, anxious to give Mom Lynn the Get Well cards they had made for her. Mom Lynn hugged all the kids and enjoyed opening her Get Well cards.

Callie and Angel Maggie could sense Mom Lynn was getting tired. They told her they would warm her up some chicken soup and bring it to her room. K. Spongie and Baby kissed their Mom and said they would be having a picnic in the backyard. Mom Lynn smiled and thanked everyone for coming.

K. Spongie led his furiends outside. There was a big picnic bench already in the lovely yard, so Whitey, Orangie, Callie and Angel Maggie got busy in the kitchen while the rest of the family and furiends went outside to prepare the table.

Whiskers said K. Spongie, “Wow! Your backyard is so big and beautiful! I can understand why you love coming out here with your Mom.” Whiskers pointed over to a small field and asked, “Is that the infamous spot where all the mousies live?”
K. Spongie nodded and said, “Yep! Those darned mousies are always taunting me and one of these day I’m going to catch one.” Spongie shook his paw at the field and everyone laughed.

Talley, Raven. Ms. Murphy and Neekah Boo spread a tablecloth on the picnic table while Princess Ana, Annabella and Pearl set the table. They had brought plenty of tableware so Spongie and Baby could enjoy their company. The girls came from the kitchen carrying platters of sandwiches, potato salad and fruit cups. K. Pete and Whiskers brought pitchers of peach iced-tea to the table. Spongie and Baby were just finishing the grand tour of their backyard.

Everyone sat down to enjoy the picnic lunch, all raising their glasses to toast family, furiends and most of all, to Mom Lynn’s health. As they ate a light breeze was blowing and the wind chimes hanging in the patio were making a beautiful sound. K. Spongie told his furiends that the sound from the wind chimes, meant Angel Wicket and all his angel fursibs were nearby. Everyone bowed their heads in silent prayer.

Soon enough it was time for the family and furiends to bid so long to K. Spongie and his family. Whiskers, K. Pete and Mitch took charge in cleaning up the table. Callie and Angel Maggie wrapped up the left over’s. Baby helped her furiends put everything in refrigerator. Baby smiled and said, “Spongie and I will have yummy food to snack on for days. We’ll be sure to try to get my Mom to eat some soup every day.”

Thomas, Annabella, Rosie and Ralph gave their new furiends a big hug, saying they hoped to see them again soon. Angel K. Malachi and Lady Ana hugged their furiends and said they would be praying for the family. After a round of hugs, the family and furiends loaded back into the van and slowly drove off.

Whiskers and Talley kept waving at K. Spongie and Baby until they disappeared from sight. Whiskers kissed Talley and mewed, “K. Spongie sure does have a beautiful home. I hope his Mom starts to feel better soon. She has suffered for so long.” Talley nodded sadly and mewed, “We just have to keep praying for Mom Lynn and her family. I just know God has to be listening.”

Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs my precious Talley.

After Dinner, Talley and her sisters
cleared the table. Pete and Whiskers loaded the dishwasher and Callie Whitey and Orangie cut the apple pies and brought them to the outdoor table.
Angel Maggie served coffee for the adults and fruit drinks for the kids. Tabitha, Liliana and Daisy insisted on putting the pie slices on to desserts plates and serving everyone.
The night was turning a little cool and a breeze blew off of the lake. Still, it was so lovely as the sky dimmed and stars twinkled above that they decided to finish their meal outdoors. Neekah Boo smiled happily as Pete brought her a lovely shawl and put it over her shoulders.
Whiskers waited until everyone was served and then took a bite. Talley’s apple pie never failed to bring him a rush of delight and bliss.
When the last bite was taken, Pete said, “Gentlemen and any ladies who care to join us let’s go look at the boat kits and the progress on the first boat. Thomas and I have made a beginning and so far we’re very pleased with the kit and the instructions!”
The Pawty animals and their ladies stood up, Monty and his whole family wanted to see as did Thundie and Cherish. In the end they all walked over to the workshop. Pete took Neekah Boo’s Paw and led her along the path. Whiskers had set a monitor in the plans area and used a remote to start the video that the pocket ship under construction and then scenes of it sailing. When the siz young humans jumped out of the boat, the kitties all laughed, realizing that the boat would comfortably hold three times that many kitties. Thundie exclaimed, “We can take the whole family sailing. I see some great days of fun on the water, next summer!”
A Malachi agreed, the guys looked at the precision cut parts and looked at the carefully twisted and tensioned wires. Monty asked, “What kind of machine do you use to twist these wires so uniformly?”
Pete laughed, and said, “Thomas! He is meticulous and his side looked so much better than mine that I did mine over again. I’m thinking he can be our quality control inspector. They all agreed that having someone make sure things were done perfectly, would be a good idea, and K Neelix, quickly made a formal motion that Thomas be the quality inspector. Whiskers seconded the motion ad the vote was unanimous. They went back to the house, and Talley put on some music, The guests began to dance, but Pete thinking that it might e better for Neekah Boo, considering her recent injury, to sit and enjoy the stars with him. Whiskers and Talley glided gracefully over the floor and the other couples did too. Monty and Josie Mae had brought some lively music and the pace quickened

Dinner seemed to be big hit with everyone. Callie
and Angel Maggie were pleasantly surprised when their petite furiend Neekah Boo asked for a second helping of her grilled vegetables. Callie and Angel Maggie made a mental note to themselves to pack up take-home boxes for everyone.

Whisker’s sensitive nose was already picking up the scrumptious scent of Talley’s apple pies baking. Whiskers groaned when his tummy let out a small growl. Whiskers blushed, threw up his paws and mewed, “My tummy has a mind of it’s own when it comes to Talley’s homemade apple pie! I have absolutely no control over it!”
Talley giggled at her silly husband, giving him a soft kiss on his cheek.
Angel Q. Cherish smiled and said, “I know exactly what you mean Whiskers! Why my sweetheart Thundie has a tummy just like yours. I could feed him all day, but when he smells my cooking, his tummy can’t keep quiet. I consider it quite a compliment!” Angel Q. Cherish gave K. Thundie a big hug. Monty’s family laughed and said Monty’s tummy was the same way. Monty had a sheepish grin on his face and said, “Hey I admit I love to eat. Us Toms should all be grateful to have such wonderful chefs in our families!” Monty held up his glass and said, “Here’s to the wonderful chefs in our lives!”
The Pawty Animals held up their glasses, K. Neelix holding up his glass to his precious wife Katie. Orangie blushed when Hedley held up his glass to toast her.
Angel K. Malachi smiled, holding up his glass to his beautiful wife Princess Lady Ana and said, “One of the great things about being an Angel, is I never have to worry about my waistline. Ana’s cooking is the best!” Princess Lady Ana blushed, patting her husband playfully on his trim tummy.
Whiskers said, “To our beautiful chefs. We are all truly blessed.”

While the Tuna Steaks, Lobster Tails and New York
Steaks were on the grill, Orangie joined her handsome furiend Hedley, bringing everyone another plate of Rumaki appetizers.

Thomas was just starting to tell the story of how him and family came to be at Whiskers and Talley house. Thomas took a sip of his limeade. “If it hadn’t been for Talley and Angel Lucy Fur and Angel Sylvie, feeling deep in their hearts that I was still alive, I might have never made it. With the help of my Annabella, the girls were able to deduce where I might be stranded, possibly hurt and unable to walk. And they were right. I had fallen over a steep cliff, fighting off a Red-Tailed Hawk and in the fall I broke both my legs. I was able to fight the hawk, a fight that finished with his death. Actually, the hawk is what kept me alive for the next two weeks. I never thought a bird could taste so good. Then as you all know, K. Pete and his family came to my rescue, flying in on one their helicopters and airlifting me to safety. I have to admit, when I saw the cats in a flying metal bird, I thought for sure I had died and was hopefully going to Heaven.” All the guests laughed as they listened.

Thomas said, “But here I am, well on my way to recovery and a new life for me and my family.”
Angel K. Malachi asked, “Will you be staying in our Feline Kingdom? I know your family is already well loved at the school.” Angel K. Malachi winked at Rosie and Ralph.
Thomas smiled broadly and said, “Oh yes, I fully intend to be a contributing member of your illustrious society. My goal right now is to help K. Pete, Whiskers and Mitch get the word out to the animal kingdom of the shelters available to them this coming winter. We feel this winter is going to be another harsh, cold one.”
Hedley stood up and walked over to shake Thomas’ paw. He said, “I applaud everything you’ve been through and how now you’re going to use it to help others. Welcome to our community.”

The furiends all gave Thomas and his family big welcome hugs. Just then everyone smiled when they heard Flower and Ralph ringing the dinner chime! The house was filled with delicious aromas and it was time to break bread with great furiends and family.

Preparing for the Dinner Party
After breakfast they all set about their tasks. Whiskers and Talley went to the gardens and they picked big baskets of zucchini and yellow squash for grilling, as well carrots and asparagus to add color to the meal. Whiskers carefully picked a big basket of what would probably be the last of the green beans until the greenhouse vines began bearing.
Pete had asked everyone to pack their bags for the Maggie Valley trip and leave them in the hall outside of their rooms. He gathered all of the bags up and brought them downstairs. He marveled at how much the girls need to take for a one day trip. Once he had everything downstairs he started carrying the bags out and loading them into his Suburban. Mitch came in as he was beginning his second trip, and pitched in to help. Mitch offered to ride over to the airfield with him and help load the Lear 85. Pete accepted his offer of help and together the two Toms took the family’s luggage to the Lear which was already rolled out on to the tarmac. They loaded it into the baggage compartment and Pete instructed the flight line crew to top off the tanks. While he was there he filed his flight plan, and checked the weather.
He and Mitch returned to the house, just as Flower came downstairs dressed in khakis, a blue button down shirt, red tie, and polished loafers. Right behind him was Ralph. Apparently Flower had loaned Ralph some of his clothes because Ralph was dressed exactly like Flower. Angels Lucy and Sylvie were already waiting on the deck. The two boys were going with Lucy and Sylvie to bring Neekah Boo from Colorado. Pete and Mitch watched as Flower explained to Ralph that it was a great honor to be escorting sweet auntie Neekah Boo to the Dinner Party.
Pete and Mitch waved as they climbed aboard the carpet and were gone in a flash. Whiskers and Talley brought their baskets of veggies into the kitchen and Whiskers began peeling apples. Angel Maggie and Callie knew that Neekah Boo would be arriving in minutes and they went to the walk-in cooler and brought out trays of appetizers, There was a shrimp platter, a tray of assorted imported cheeses, with both dried and fresh fruits as well as assorted nuts. There was a

veggie platter with fresh homemade blue cheese dip. From the warming oven Orangie took a tray of Rumaki (Bacon wrapped, water chestnut stuffed chicken livers).
Whitey brought a platter of chicken wings, Little Smokie sausages and Swedish meatballs to the buffet table. She lit the warming trays under the warm foods. And made sure the ice tray under the shrimp platter was filled.
Neekah Boo and her escorts arrived on the deck and the boys escorted her inside like royalty. Pete rushed over and gave her a welcoming hug. The rest of the family followed suit. Talley asked if she preferred fruit juice, tea or a catnip limeade. Neekah said the limeade sounded delicious and Talley brought her a glass topped with a sprig of fresh catnip.
The door Chimes sounded and Pearl went to answer it. She returned with Monty and his large family. Whiskers did the introductions and it took a while. Thomas and Annabella were delighted to meet the friendly cats. Annabella whispered to Thomas, “Isn’t Neekah Boo exquisitely beautiful?”
Thomas nodded, “She is, I can see why Pete is so fond of her.”
They moved out onto the deck and offered drinks and snacks. A Q Cherish and Thundie were next to arrive, and not long after them Ana and A K Malachi arrived.
Talley got her pies in the oven, and Pete and Whiskers and Thomas started the grill. Thomas taught them how to stack the natural charcoal for the best combustion and he lit the fire with a flint and iron striker that he carried in a small tube. He remarked, “No matches or lighters in the forest, so I carry one of these and I’m always able to build a fire. It’s not as easy as finding a lightning strike fire, but not too hard.”
Whiskers said you made it look easy, may I try it>”
Thomas showed him how to take a bit of moss and strike a spark onto and then blow on it until it flamed up. Thundie, Pete, Mitch, and Malachi all had to try it. Thomas was putting the flint and striker away when K Neelix, Hedley and Jakar arrived. Katie, Neelix’s wife hugged Monty and the rest of her family.
Pete introduced Jakar and Q Lily to Thomas and his family and Whiskers took over the introductions.
When everyone had appetizers and drinks Whiskers brought out his ukulele and Flower got his harmonica. They played and the kitties sang old favorites. Some of the couples danced, Neekah Boo laughed happily as it was her turn to lead the singing of She’ll be comin’ round the mountain!
Whitey went to the cooler brought out several trays piled high with Tuna steaks and several with steaks and lobster tails. Whiksres and pete seasoned them and set them aside.
The tables were decorated with cloths of fall colors and topped with dried fall centerpieces.
It was going to be a lovely party

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
Happy Friday furiend! My Mom had errands to do this morning, so she put Ebony and Sugar Bear inside at the next-door neighbor’s house. (A sort of trial run.) When Mom came home, she saw Ebony in the bay window next door. So cute! About an hour later, Mom went next door to see how the kitties were doing. When Mom opened the door, Ebony jumped into her arms! Ebony is a big 15-pound boy and Mom has never had a cat jump in her arms! A lot of puppy dogs, but never a cat! Mom sat down and Ebony sat in her lap. Sugar Bear was being a kitten, running up and down the stairs. This weekend the neighbor’s Mom will be moving in permanently. We think the kitties just need someone to keep them company. Keep your paws crossed!

See you tomorrow sweetie! Give your Mom a big hug for us!

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

For all you black cats out there, a lovely poem by Teresa Harrison-Best...

The Steps To Reach Fulfilment =^.^=
~~~~~
I want to sing the virtues
of having a black cat.
So elegant and glossy,
never tedious nor matt.

They’ll never clash with décor
or lose their sense of style.
They’ll compliment all your colours
with an allure that will beguile.

When holding any black cat
you’ll always look most chic.
With an element of wonder,
and hint of pure mystique.

Just think of them as slimming,
as black gives that effect.
An optical illusion,
such a bonus I suspect.

You’ll never need a clothes brush,
if dressing in black tie.
Just think of all the tantrums,
of many years gone bye.

They never look too grubby,
and their feet are always clean.
Despite the many mud baths
they always look pristine.

In snow you’ll never lose them,
such a monochrome delight.
They never fade in sunlight,
Just always looking so bright.

Black cats are very lucky,
as you would clearly see.
They’ll give you much enjoyment,
and you will soon agree.

^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
It’s very noisy here today with lots of big trucks as they repave our street. The workers started at 7:30 this morning. Even though the construction company warned all the neighbors about the repaving, we saw several neighbors running outside, frantic to get to work in their cars. The workers used the first half hour to cordon off the street, giving time for the silly neighbors who hadn’t prepared.

We are all hiding inside the house. Ebony and Sugar Bear are safe in the backyard. My Mom has set out treats for all of us, but it’s way too noisy to eat - even for me. MOL!

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

Ferals =^.^=
~~~~~
We never know what the day may bring,
or what we have in store.
Each day is taken in our stride,
just like the one’s before.

Some of us have battle scars,
and wounds that cause us pain.
Mother nature is our nurse,
and soothes us back again.

We’re loath to trust, it keeps us safe
the past has taught us well.
Compassion’s shown by very few,
how many? We can’t tell.

The elements can be unkind,
both old and young may die.
Life is tough for feral cats,
for that we won’t deny.

Some us are trapped and caught,
no longer can we breed.
Others wind up at the pound,
for them a home they plead!

Our future’s never guaranteed,
the risks for us are great.
Poison, cars and unkind folk,
can often seal our fate.

However, we just soldier on,
we’re streetwise, shrewd and smart.
We’ll take our chance in the hostile world,
and hope it has a heart! ♥

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
The temperature dropped 20 degrees from yesterday! It smells like rain outside, but so far no raindrops have hit the ground. Last evening we had gusty winds up to 30 mph, so this morning my Mom was raking up all the leaves and broken branches in the yard. When Mom took Callie and me on our stroller walk this morning, the trail was covered with crunchy leaves. I couldn’t get my usual nap in while we were strolling because it was so noisy!

Tomorrow our street is going to be repaved so we’ll all be prisoners in our houses from 8 a.m. till 5 p.m. I made sure my Mom has all the essentials in the house - cat food, cat treats and cat toys. MOL! My Mom is going to park her car on an adjacent street just in case of an emergency, since our street will be covered in wet asphalt all day. Mom is also going to keep our outside fursibs Ebony & Sugar Bear locked up in our backyard, just to be safe.

We left a vote with soft purrs, hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need. Give your dear Mom a big hug for us too sweetie. We love you both very much.

SOME HALLOWEEN CAT LUCK AND LORE =^.^=
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^
• A new cat given the name of a recently deceased cat will bring you good luck.

• Cat lore in ancient Thailand taught that when a particularly spiritual, or holy person died, their soul would enter the body of a cat, and would then ascend to Paradise when the cat died.

• In mythology, the cat was believed to have great influence on the weather. Witches who rode on storms took the form of cats. The dog, an attendant of the storm king Odin, was a symbol of wind. Cats came to symbolize down-pouring rain, and dogs to symbolize strong gusts of wind. This may be where the phrase "it's raining cats and dogs" originated.

• If two cats were seen fighting around a dying person, or near a grave shortly after a funeral, this represented the Devil and an Angel fighting for possession of the recently departed soul.

Hi Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
Well, us kitties had the house to ourselves today. My Dad had car problems this morning on the way to work and Mom had to go rescue him and his car. Mom took him to school because you can’t have a teacher missing school without a substitute! So Dad’s car is in the shop and the tow truck driver brought Mom home. My Mom saw all of us, even Whitey and Orangie, looking out the bay window when she got home. Ebony and Sugar Bear were sitting on their cathouse in the front yard.

We were all happy to see our Mom, even though she didn’t bring us back any treats. MOL!

Give your sweet Mom a big hug for us sweetie. We hope you are both doing well and we always have you in our prayers.

• Out Groomed-
Does your cat go to the “spa” and get the full treatment – groom, nails, polish – while you do a self-dye job at home? Or maybe your cat gets a new outfit each season while you are still rockin’ parachute pants. You are probably a crazy cat purrson.

• Cat-itecture-
Are your walls covered with cat “shelves?” Did you put holes through the walls between rooms to create walkways for your feline friends? You are probably a crazy cat purrson.

• Always Have Room for One More-
And finally, can you not turn away when you see a cat in need? No matter what were supposed to be doing, do you stop to pick up that stray cat? You ARE a Crazy Cat Purrson and we LOVE you for the good deeds you do!

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
Someone has let the dreaded vacuum monster loose today! Yikes! It’s a sunny day so Callie and I are hiding in the backyard and Whitey & Orangie have the upstairs bedroom as their safe haven. Our outside fursibs Ebony and Sugar Bear are lucky to be outside in the front yard.

My Mom had the two outside cats over at their new home yesterday for several hours. The plan is to have Ebony and Sugar Bear moved in next-door full time next week. Mom wants them to be inside cats BEFORE Halloween. Ebony and Sugar Bear are both black cats and we all know how dangerous it can be for black cats out on Halloween night.:(

We love you dear furiend. We always have you and your sweet Mom in our thoughts and prayers.

• In Transylvania, Romania, it is said that if a cat jumps over a corpse, the dead person will rise again as a vampire.

• You will always be lucky if you can make friends with a cat.

• In the Middle Ages, some Europeans believed that cats had healing powers. Those people with a diagnosis of “insanity” were sometimes given cats to own as a means of treatment.

• If a cat voluntarily comes to your house, ensure that you welcome it in – sending the cat away will bring you bad luck.

• Early Christianity taught that a cat seen on a grave meant that the buried person’s soul was under the Devil’s control.

Hi Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
According to the weather report this morning, today is supposed to be our last day in the nineties. It’s also very dry and windy, so there’s a high fire danger alert. But by Wednesday the temps will drop twenty degrees. Maybe it’s finally time to get the ole electric blankets back out.

Our pawrents took Callie and me for our walk in the stroller. The walking trail was deserted. We haven’t seen any deer for quite a while, but we still leave water in the bucket for any animals that might be thirsty.

Mom and Dad went grocery shopping and Petco shopping today! Whoo hoo! We all got treats and some little catnip stuffed pumpkin toys to bat around. Now it’s time for a relaxing Sunday catnap!

• Home Cooked Meals-
Does your cat have a special home cooked meal every night….while you eat microwave dinners? Or maybe you two share a meal with the cat sitting at the head of the table? Yup, you are probably a crazy cat purrson

• Cat Hair Sweater-
It keeps you warm, right? And you “swear” it’s the softest fur you have ever felt, and your cat agrees. Although your relatives will never hug you again. You are probably a crazy cat purrson.

• Kitty Selfies-
Is your smartphone full of pictures of your cats, including Kitty Selfies that you swear your cat took on their own? You are probably a crazy cat purrson.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo and Mom!
Oh sweet furiend, we are so sorry to hear about the hemorrhage on your little spine! Thank God your dear Mom was able to get you to the vet in time. It sounds so painful! We'll be praying for you sweetie. We always have you and your sweet Mom in our prayers. We're glad you like your Grammy so much. That's so nice to have company that like cats. Give your Mom a big hug for us. We love you guys.

We had a house full of company today, so my fursisters and I have been hiding out upstairs all day. No fun at all. My Mom is promising to go to Petco tomorrow, so we’re holding her to that. I’ve got my long list ready to go!

• Toilet Trained Tabby-
Have you trained your cat to go to the bathroom on your toilet? If so, you are probably a crazy cat purrson…and short a few friends.

• Never Sleep Alone-
Is your bed busier than a Las Vegas Hotel room? If you have a hard time finding room in your own bed to sleep because of all the kitties, you are probably a crazy cat purrson.

• What’s a Vacation?-
Do you never go on vacation because of your cats’ routines? Not to mention their needs are just too difficult for a pet sitter to understand and you would just worry about them the whole time…who needs a vacation anyway? You are probably a crazy cat purrson.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
Yippee! CatChannel is back and so far so good. I told my Mom not to ever log out of CC again. MOL!

We have a lot of catching up to do. We are all doing fine, pretty much of the same ole routine. Callie and I are napping outside. Our temperatures have been in the low 80’s with one last heat wave expected next Monday. But it sure has been chilly in the morning when Callie and I go for our stroller walks with my Mom. Mom put an extra blanket inside for us to snuggle.

Whitey and Orangie are doing fine too, sleeping in the upstairs bedroom window, enjoying the sun. Our outside fursibs Ebony and Sugar Bear are getting closer to becoming inside cats with the neighbor next door. Mom had them both inside the neighbor’s house yesterday for a couple of hours. Ebony surprised Mom by using the kitty litter box. The neighbor’s Mother will be moving into the house at the end of this month, so my Mom is going to keep taking the two cats over every day to get used to their new home. In the meantime, Ebony and Sugar Bear are still sleeping in our backyard at night, and they catnap in the front yard during the day.

We sure did miss all our furiends. It’s good to be back!

We hope your sweet Mom is doing okay. Do you still have company visiting?! Give your Mom a big hug for us. We always have you both in our prayers sweetie.

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
It took two long days, but Cat Channel seems to be working for us today. I hope we don’t jinx it by saying that out loud! (Too late! CC is back on the fritz! Gotta keep trying!)

My Mom spent the whole day and most of the night yesterday, upgrading the system software on her Mac along with all the other apps that had to be upgraded once she had the new system software installed properly. My Mom had been putting it off for too long and thought it might be necessary if CC is upgrading the website. Sometimes an old browser can’t handle the newer websites and our browser was definitely dated, so it had to be done. It was not a pretty day. Callie and I had dibs on the new cat tree in the computer room. Whitey and Orangie had to settle for the cat beds on the floor. But we were all there with Mom to lend a paw when she needed help. MOL! At least we tried to keep her calm.

The outside kitties Ebony & Sugar Bear are fine. Mom is keeping them locked up in the backyard today where it’s cooler, since temps are supposed to be in the mid-90’s.

We left a vote with soft purrs, hugs and prayers for you and your sweet Mom.

The Wisdom & Witticisms of being a Cat =^.^=
~~~~~
Human Inconsistency

Humans spend many hours sitting in front of a box with moving pictures, tapping tiny squares on a board with their fingertips...it is rumored that this is actually how humans sharpen their claws! Considering how sanctimonious they are when they catch cats sharpening their claws, humans obviously need a lesson in consistency. One of the best ways to do this is to walk on the board with the tiny squares...that will always get a huge reaction from the human, a good indication that you're actually teaching them something! If that doesn't work, lay on the board or throw up a furball on it! There's no good reason why humans should be allowed to sharpen their claws while forbidding cats to do so!

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
Don't ever worry about coming to visit us dear furiend. We just always want you to know we're thinking of you and wishing the best for you and your lovely Mom.

So you guys are having company? Having company is always stressful, even when its family that you love very much. Give your Mom a hug and tell her to try not to worry so much. Worrying never changes anything and just causes undo stress. I know that your Mom does the best that she can and your Grammy will just have to understand. When my Mom's mother-in-law used to visit us (she passed away a few years ago), she would also run her hand on the furniture, checking for dust and pet hair. My Mom would just smile at her and tell her where the dusting rags were stored. MOL!

Also whenever we have company, my Mom puts signs on all the doors that say, "DON'T LET THE CATS OUT!" I know, it's not very subtle, but sure gets the point across!

We'll be praying that your Grammy's visit turns out to be a happy one! Maybe she'll surprise your Mom. We'll be sending pawsitive thoughts and prayers your way.

I sure do hope Santa Cat brings you a cat tree for Christmas. You would look so cute in one! Take care dear furiend. We love you and your dear Mom.

We left a vote with soft purrs and warm hugs.

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
Happy Monday! Another late start for my Mom and me. She is spending way too much time with our outside fursibs, Ebony and Sugar Bear! But my Mom tells me it won’t be for long. Hopefully by the middle of October, Ebony and Sugar will be living in their new furever home next door.

Callie and I went for our morning cat stroller walk this morning. The weather is very mild today, only in the 70’s, but by Wednesday we are expected to have another heat wave in the high nineties. Hopefully that’ll be the last one.

Whitey and Orangie are catnapping in the new cat tree in the computer room. I thought the new cat tree was a present for me?! Humph! I guess you snooze, you lose! We’ll see about that. Right now I’m trying to stare down Whitey and Orangie, giving them the “Evie Eye”! MOL! (If you know K. Mike and his fursister Evie, you’ll KNOW what the “Evie Eye” is, and why my sisters should be very afraid!)

We left a vote with soft purrs, hugs and prayers for you dear furiend and your sweet Mom.

they take a piece of my heart with them,
and every new cat who comes into my life
gifts me with a piece of their heart.
If I live long enough
all the components of my heart will be feline,
and I will become
as generous and loving as they are.”
