Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
Oh dear furiend, we are so very sad to hear your other leg is hurting now too! It must be exhausting for you to hop on two legs. We know your dear Mom must be so worried. We hope the vet specialist will be able to help you. We have our paws crossed for you sweetie. We always have you and your family in our prayers. Get some rest dear Neekah Boo. Monday will be here before you know it. Give your precious Mom and Fatty warm hugs for us.

I can't believe you're still getting snow! It does sound pretty though! My Mom will being taking a trip to San Diego this Saturday to visit Grandma for Easter. My Mom will be gone from April 19-23. My Dad is staying home to watch over us kitties. Of course I will be helping him too. MOL! My Mom is already worried about leaving us with Dad, but she needs to visit GM (her Mom). GM is 85 years old and my Mom is always worried about her. We wished we lived closer to her, but San Diego is kind of far from us. It is a least an 8 hour drive in a car. Mom is flying, so the trip only takes 1 hour and 20 minutes. I'll be sure to say goodbye before she leaves. Get well soon pretty furiend!

This morning at 1:30 a.m. my Mom got up to watch the total lunar eclipse or “Blood Moon” as it was called. Mom was able to watch it from our backyard, so she let Callie and me out to watch it too. We were so excited about going outside in the middle of the night, we just ran around the deck like crazed kitties and forgot to look up into the sky. MOL! Whitey and Orangie didn’t even budge out of bed. They’re starting to keep regular hours now!

I left a vote with purrs, hugs and something to make you smile. We are always praying for our dear furiends and their families in need.

My Kitten Won’t Stop Talking =^.^=
~~~~~
My kitten won't stop talking.
She just prattles night and day.
She walks around repeating
nearly everything I say.

My kitten never says, "Meow."
She never even purrs.
She mimics me instead
in that annoying voice of hers.

She waits for me to speak,
and then she copies every word,
or begs me for a cracker,
or says, "I'm a pretty bird."

I'm not sure what to do, and so
I simply grin and bear it.
She's been this way since yesterday;
that's when she ate my parrot.

--Kenn Nesbitt

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
Just pawing by to say meow and share a cute story with you. We all catnapped in the sunshine today. We had some more Blue Jays in our backyard this morning, but I let them know who is boss around here. (If they chase me, I run for the kitty screen door. Mom keeps the flap door open for us when we're outside!)

We hope you had a nice Monday. We always have you and your family in our prayers dear furiend. We hope your leg is starting to feel better. Get some rest sweetie and make sure you eat. You need your strength pretty kitty.

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

"I Rescued A Human Today!"
~~~~~
Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her.

I swished my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn’t be afraid.
As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage.
I didn’t want her to know my cage hadn’t been cleaned today.
Sometimes the overworked shelter keepers get too busy and I didn’t want her to think poorly of them.

As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn’t feel sad about my past.
I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone’s life.

She got down on her knees and made little kitty sounds at me.
I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her.
Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship.
A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.

Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms.

I would promise to keep her safe.
I would promise to always be by her side.
I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.

I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor.
So many more are out there who haven’t walked the corridors.
So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.

I rescued a human today!

Hi Precious Neekah Boo, It's Pete
Pete knocked on the door and Neekah Boo's mama opened the door. She invited Pete, Talley and Whiskers inside. Talley and Whiskers carried Easter baskets filled with treats and she asked Neekah Boo's mama to give them to Neekah Boo and Fatty on Easter morning. Pete asked if it would be okay to visit with Neekah Boo and Fatty for a few minutes. She said that it would be okay but to please not tire her. Whiskers said to Pete, "Why don't you go up first and Talley and I will help put the soup away."
Pete went up the stairs and knocked at he bedroom door. Fatty called, "Come in."
Pete went and found Neekah Boo and Fatty both on the bed with their Kindles. They had been reading to one another. Pete greeted both of his friends and said to Neekah Boo, "I'm hoping that you're feeling better today,
I hope, too that you don't mind our dropping in for a short visit. I've brought you some soup, some tuna treats, and some more books of poetry.
Talley and Whiskers came with me and they're waiting to see you, but If you don't mind I'll read you one of the poems,
It's called when God Created Kitty Cats;

When God created kitty cats,
He had no recipe;
He knew He wanted something sweet,
As sweet as sweet could be.

He started out with sugar,
Adding just a trace of spice;
Then stirred in drops of morning dew,
To keep them fresh and nice.

He thought cats should be soft to pet,
Thus He gave them coats of fur;
So they could show they were content,
He taught them how to purr.

He made for them long tails to wave,
While strutting down the walk;
Then trained them in meow-ology,
So they could do cat-talk.

He made them into acrobats,
And gave them grace and poise;
Their wide-eyed curiosity,
He took from little boys.

He put whiskers on their faces,
Gave them tiny ears for caps;
Then shaped their little bodies,
To snugly fit on laps.

He gave them eyes as big as saucers,
To look into man's soul;
Then set a tolerance for mankind,
As their purpose and their goal.

Benevolent ... and ... generous,
He made so many of them;
Then charged, with Fatherly Concern,
The human race to love them.

When one jumped up upon His lap,
God gently stroked its head;
The cat gave Him a kitty kiss,
"What wondrous love," God said.

God smiled at His accomplishment,
So pleased with His creation;
And said, with pride, as He sat back,
"At last. . .I've reached purr-fection!"

I've always liked that poem and when God created you he truly did create purrfection."
Pete closed the book and put it on the bed by his beautiful little friend.
Talley and Whiskers came in and Talley gently hugged Neekah Boo and Fatty. Whiskers was holding a tray with two steaming mugs of Maggie's homemade Seafood Chowder. Neekah Boo asked him to put it on the bedside table, which he did. They chatted for a while and after a while Talley said that they should probably let her rest, so she could get her strength back. Pete told her that when she was on her feet again, he wanted to check her out in the turboprop Cessna Grand Caravan, so that he could assign one for her use. “You and Fatty can use it to fly any place you’d like and when there is a big event at the Castle you can fly kitties to it. The Royal Squadron pays all expenses, and I’ll set up accounts for you at your local airfield to hangar and maintain the aircraft. You’ll have your own Royal Squadron credit card to use for any expenses related to the aircraft or your travel expenses like meals and hotels.”
Talley told Pete he was tiring Neekah Boo.
Pete apologized, and said, “We’d better go now; I just wanted to let you know that you and your family are always in our prayers!
Angel Lucy-Fur was waiting for them when they got downstairs, and in an instant they were home.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
You are always in our prayers dear furiend. Get some rest and hopefully you'll feel better in the morning. Hugs to your Mom and Fatty.

I have a happy story I want to share today. Friday night when Mom was filling the outside cat feeders with dry food, a small black cat was under her car softly mewing. Mom was able to coax him out from under the car with a bowl of wet food and a saucer of milk. Mom sat down talking to him while he ate. He finished eating and came over to rub against Mom’s legs. He didn’t have a collar, but was clearly domesticated. Mom told Dad, if that cat is still in yard before we go to bed, I’m going to try to grab him and take him to our vet in the morning to see if he has a microchip.

He was still hanging around, so Mom put him in the big dog carrier she used to trap Whitey & Orangie. He was small, maybe 7 pounds, solid black, short haired and looked like a big kitten. He spent the night in our kitchen, crying for a while, then finally falling asleep. The good news is he did have a microchip! His name is Ray Ray, one year old and had been missing since April 2. The owners came to get him, overjoyed someone had found their furbaby. Ray Ray had traveled over seven miles from his home. A very happy ending! Needless to say, Dad was very happy. He didn’t want to have a new cat in the house while Mom is gone next week. MOL!

My Dad was very quiet around here while Mom was trying to figure out to do with Ray Ray, but he never said Mom couldn't keep the little guy. I heard a sigh of relief from Dad when Mom called him from the vet to let him know Ray Ray had a home. Whew!

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

LITTLE GHOST CAT =^.^=
~~~~~
“Little Ghost cat,
Your footsteps pit-pat
In the hallway of my mind
The kiss of air, whisper-soft purr;
I hear the echoes of your purr;
See your pouncing shadow everywhere....
And smile through my tears.“

It was a beautiful morning on the Castle Grounds,
Mitch had called at 5:30 AM and after learning that the food was ready to be transported over to the Castle Kitchens, he had sent a dozen volunteers to help.
Banners flew and the construction site was encircled with Flower’s and his sister’s golden ribbon. It fluttered in the wind and Mitch had taken care to assure that it was securely fastened to the stakes so that it would be ready for the ribbon cutting.
Talley and Whiskers had set their alarm clock, but had awakened well before it went off. They showered and dressed, not in their formal finery but in casual clothes that would be comfortable as they assisted in setting up for the festivities on the grounds of the Castle they would come home and change before the big occasion.
At 7:00, Angels Lucy-Fur and Sylvia Seville materialized in the kitchen, bringing Neekah Boo and Fatty with them. Pete insisted that Neekah Boo and her sister take a seat on the sofa and he brought them hot tea and some of Maggie’s homemade sweet rolls.
Raven checked the shelter cams and found that the shelter guests were all preparing to attend the ground breaking and the festivities afterwards.
The weather couldn’t have been better. It was already in the sixties and the sky was clear blue!
Whiskers and Talley arrived at the Castle to find that a crew of young toms had already set up the tables and chairs, and were now loading the grills with charcoal, to prepare for the cookout. The angel Chorus had arrived and many of the angels greeted old friends and prepared to entertain the crowds. Pete had walked down to the airfield and found it a busy place as royal squadron pilots brought kitties in from all over the Feline Empire. He checked the incoming flights display and noted with satisfaction that they would all arrive with plenty of time to make the ceremony.

Angel Maggie and Callie, finished their preparations in the kitchens and joined Whitey, Orangie and Pearl at the buffet line. The warming tables were ready, the stacks of plates and utensils awaited. It was time to go home and change into their new dresses and be ready for the ceremonies to begin.
Mitch retied his necktie three times before he was satisfied that it looked right. He wore khakis, a light blue shirt, a navy blazer and comfortable polished loafers. He hoped he looked appropriate for his meeting with the Queen. He walked the short distance to the Castle and was immediately ushered in to the Queen’s private breakfast room. Angel Queen Misty welcomed him. He bowed deeply. She motioned for him to be seated. She said, “Mitch, it’s very nice to meet you, I’ve heard good things about you.”
“Thank you your highness, very much.”
“Mitch, I asked you to join me this morning to get your thoughts on several things. First, I’m impressed with the spirit of community that you have helped establish with in the feral kitties, and second I want to help you develop their skills and their quality of life. To that end, I will have the Empire und the training and programs you’ve started, and propose establishing college programs for those wishing to obtaing professional degrees. Is that something that you feel would help the community?”
Mitch was stunned, but recovered and said, “Your highness, it would help our community and, I believe, be a benefit to the whole empire!”
They chatted like two friends and at last Queen Misty looked at the clock on the mantle and said, “I believe my ladies in waiting will scold me if I don’t start getting ready for the ceremony. I’ll see you there.”
Mitch took his leave and hurried up the mountain to Whiskers and Talley’s home.
Pearl saw him drive up and opened the door as he approached. He hugged her and she could tell he was excited. “What?” she asked.
Mitch said, “I’ve just had very good news, but it’s the Queens announcement to make so I shouldn’t say anything.”
Pete came downstairs in his formal uniform. He was followed by Flower. Mitch was all smiles and Pete asked, “Did you have a good breakfast?”
Mitch nodded, “It was fantastic. The Queen was so nice!”
Flower hugged Mitch and said, I’m going to help cut the ribbon, Uncle Mitch!”
Pete said, “We’ll all be ready in a few minutes and we can drive over together. He looked around did a mental count and said, “I guess we’ll need two vehicles.”
Mitch said, I can take Flower and his sisters.”
Talley and Whiskers came down and joined Fatty and Neekah Boo at the table. They

were both lovely in spring colors.
Orangie and Whitey checked the kitchen one last time to make sure everything was turned off. The family and guests departed for the Castle Grounds.
Neekah Boo Rode by Pete and admired the beautifully decorated grounds as they drove into the Castle Garden Gate. They parked and began the short walk over to the construction site. A castle attendant greeted them and directed them to seating near the front. Pete as usual had notes in his pocket and felt that as usual he wouldn’t need them.
The seats were filled; virtually every shelter kitty was in attendance. Chloe sat with a group of them and admired the beautiful decorations that had been placed on the dais. With a flourish of trumpets the Queen took the stage. She said that today marked a momentous day in the history of the Empire. That the structures being built here were more than just brick and mortar they were foundation for a new era of education. She said that the kitties trained here would go on to train others and lead the Empire for many years.
She asked Mitch to come forward and introduced him. Loud applause filled the gathering. Mitch blushed and began to speak; He said that, were it not for the shelters provided by Whiskers, Pete and the family, a number of kitties here today might not have been. “More than food and shelter though, we were provided with love and caring. We received inspiration and faith. We were shown a doorway to a new life as part of this larger community. For that, we are grateful! I would like to introduce two of the many who helped make this possible.” He called out to Pete and Whiskers and asked them to come forward. Pete’s remarks were short and simple. He said that the it was a privilege to meet kitties whose self-reliance and independence had kept them separate, but that it was a pleasure to introduce them to the larger community, so that they could share their considerable talents for the benefit of all. “The credit really goes to Mitch for keeping this community safe and happy, all we did was provide some of the material needed to help.”
Whiskers remarks downplayed the family’s role in creating the schools and bringing the feral community into the greater Feline Empire. At last Whiskers said, “Now, in the interest of concluding the ceremony and getting on to that wonderful cookout that I smell, I’ll turn the stage back to Mitch.
There was applause and shouts as Mitch stepped forward to the Ribbon. He motioned to Flower to come forward. The Queen stepped between them and with a large pair of scissors (assisted by both Mitch and Flower) she cut the golden ribbon. There was a huge round of applause as she said, “I pronounce this construction begun!”

She motioned to her Aide, and he brought forward two boxes. She turned to Flower who stood at attention. “Flower it is my honor to present to you the Queens medal of service to the Empire!” she bent forward and fastened the Medal on his uniform.
She turned to Mitch, “For service to the Empire and to your community, It is my privilege to proclaim you a Knight Commander of the Feline Empire.”
Mitch bowed and she touched him on both shoulders with the royal Scepter. Then she fastened the royal medal around his neck, and presented him with the ceremonial sword. “Sir Mitch I am honored to have you in Royal Service!”
The applause was deafening. Flower ran to his mom and sisters and exclaimed “Uncle Mitch is a royal knight!”
The Queen raised her paws and quiet came over the crowd. The Queen hugged Pete and Whiskers and said quietly, “thank you both for what you have done.”
She turned to the crowd and said, “Something smells wonderful, why don’t we eat!”
Pete returned quickly to his family. He offered Neekah Boo his arm and escorted her to a table. He asked her what she would like and went to bring food back to her and her sister.
Whiskers and Talley went to the food line and filled plates with Burgers and delicious side dishes.
The band played and the kitties partied, Neekah Boo and Fatty were having fun, Pete told Neekah Boo, “I would love to dance with you, but I think that can wait until your hip is all better. For now just being with you and enjoying your company is enough.”
Flower showed his mom his Royal Medal and Mitch, surrounded, friends could hardly believe what had happened. The Knighthood entailed a stipend and an estate. He felt the medal on his chest and smiled. Bobby, Stormy and Inky came to him and said, “Sir Mitch, congratulations.”
Mitch said, “Can you believe that?” The schools, the colleges, the training, our future is unlimited!”
The party was a happy event and Whiskers and Talley were in a state of Bliss. Flower came to the table and raised his paw. Pete smiled, “Little guy, you can always talk to us.”
Flower said, “Miss Neekah Boo, I just wanted to say how pretty you are today!”
Neekah Boo smiled at the little skunk and said, “I must say that You’re very handsome today, May I see you royal medal?”
Flower proudly stepped forward so Neekah Boo could examine his medal. The food was good, the friendship was wonderful and the day was a success!

Hi Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
Mom made another trip to Petco today to stock up on treats for us while she is gone to San Diego to visit GM next week. Mom has reminders for Dad posted in the house - to feed us, clean the litter boxes and to never shut a closet door. Wait, what about the treats? Can’t forget that! MOL! I hope you enjoyed “National Pet’s Day”. CATS RULE!

You're always in our prayers dear furiend. Give Fatty and your Mom a big hug for us!

ONE BY ONE =^.^=

One by one, they file past my cage
Too old, too worn, too broken, no way
Way past his time, he can't run and play
Then they shake their heads slowly and go
on their way

A little old man, arthritic and sore
It seems I am not wanted anymore
I once had a home, I once had a bed
A place that was warm, and where I was fed

Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail
Who wants a cat so old and so frail?
My family decided I didn't belong
I got in their way; my attitude was wrong

Whatever excuse they made in their head
Can't justify how they left me for dead
Now I sit in this cage, where day after day
The younger cats all get adopted away

When I had almost come to the end of my rope
You saw my face, and I finally had hope
You saw through the grey and the legs bent with age
And felt that I still had life beyond this cage

You took me home, gave me food an a bed
And shared your own pillow with my poor tired head
We snuggle and play and you talk to me low
You love me so dearly, you want me to know

I may have lived most of my life with another
But you outshine them with a love so much stronger
And I promise to return all the love I can give
To you, my dear person, as long as I live

I may be with you for a week or for years
We will share many smiles, you will no doubt shed tears
And when the time comes that God deems I must leave
I know you will cry and your heart it will grieve

And when I arrive at the Bridge all brand new
My thoughts and my heart will still be with you
And I will brag to all that will hear
Of the person who made my last days oh, so dear.

There is not much to report here today. My Mom is housecleaning again (Ugh!), but she did let Callie and me help fold the laundry. Callie loves lying in a basket of warm sheets!

My Mom is getting ready for another trip to visit GM in San Diego. Dad gets a week off for Easter vacation, so he’ll be home to take care of us. Of course, I’ll be here to help. Mom will be gone April 19th through April 23rd. We’ll have our paws crossed that CC will still be up and running when she gets back. GM is fine...just feeling a little under the weather (GM is 85 yrs young), so Mom thought she should take the opportunity to visit her. Maybe this will give Dad a chance to bond with Whitey & Orangie. (Or not!)

WHAT YOUR CAT MIGHT BE THINKING =^.^=
~~~~~
“I'm the center of the universe.
I'm all-out royalty.
There really isn't anyone
who's near as good as me.

And everything that's ever done
is done just for my bidding.
And I shall banish anyone
I do not deem befitting.

Laps were made to be my throne,
and hands were made to pet me.
And anything I want to do,
of course, you have to let me.

And if you open up a book,
then that's to lay my head on.
And if you put your sweater down,
well, that's for me to shed on.

And if you plant a pretty plant,
well, that's for me to chew.
And if you bring a puppy home,
well, that's the end of you.”

Hi Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
We had a wonderful time visiting you and your family yesterday. We hope you are feeling a little better today.

Every now and then, K. Pete and I write our own version of the day’s happy events. K. Pete is a phenomenal storyteller, so I always enjoying reading his writing a lot more than mine! My stories aren’t as fun to read as his, but I have a great time trying! I wanted to make sure you had his story to read, so I posted it for you below. Enjoy dear furiend!

P.S. My Mom is still trying to get her car fixed, so us kitties will be all by ourselves most of the day. We always have you and your family in our prayers. Get well soon sweet furiend!

Pete had gone back to the town house after
breakfast to select some of his favorite volumes of poetry to share with Neekah Boo. Flower had gone with him and was looking at the photographs that hung on the wall in the upstairs hall. “Who is this pilot, Uncle Pete?” Pete turned and saw that Flower was looking at a black and white photograph of his dad.
Pete came over and said, “That’s my dad, Flower. This picture was taken in 1971 at Da Nang in Viet Nam. That’s an RF-4C that he’s climbing into. The man in the back cockpit is my Uncle Vic, He was Dad’s Reconnaissance Systems Officer.”
Flower pointed and asked “Is that a bomb under their airplane?”
"This?" Pete tapped the glass over the photograph and said, “No that’s an extended range fuel tank. They would take off and fly north burning the fuel in that tank. When they crossed over into North Viet Nam, they would drop that tank and use the aircraft's internal fuel. They didn’t have any bombs or missiles or even guns. They were part of a reconnaissance squadron and they found targets and assessed damage.”
“Was your dad scared when he was in the war?”

“Yes, Flower he was, but he prayed for the Lord to protect him and bring him home and the Lord answered his prayers.”
Flower said, I’m glad the Lord kept your dad safe.”
Pete smiled, “Me too, Flower!”
Pete had selected a dozen volumes of poetry and several talking books on CD that he though Neekah Boo would like. He selected Comedies, Stories about heroic animals and then picked a dozen CDs of classical music. He put it all in a gym bag and added a portable CD player with headphones. If the sounds of the Kitty Hotel made Neekah Boo nervous the noise cancelling headphones would provide her with some relief. He looked in the drawer in the kitchen and added three packages of batteries to the bag. He went back to his study and added a second CD player to the bag, thinking that Fatty might like some diversion as well. “Well, Flower, can you think of anything else we should take?”
Flower said, “Miss Neekah Boo likes movies, I could send her my Kindle and she could watch the movies I’ve downloaded.”
Pete smiled at the kitten’s generosity. Flower that’s a great idea but you know what, I think we should get them their own kindles then they could Skype call us and I think that would make them feel better to see their friends whenever they wanted to.”
Pete and Flower went back up to Whiskers and Talley’s house. When they got there, Talley was packing a basket of treats to take with them. Pete went to Raven and Murphy and asked them if they would make a run into the village and see their electronics friend. He told them that he needed two 4G Kindle HDXs with unlimited data plans and all of the accessories. When you get back register them to Neekah Boo and Fatty. He asked them to key it all to his Amex Black Credit Card. If you have time download some good kitty movies on to them.
Talley had heard him and came over; she told him she thought it was a great idea.
Pete showed her the CDs and books and she said that they would be good as well. Murphy and Raven decided to save time and asked Sylvie to transport them to the village. In the twinkling of an eye of an eye they were standing in the shop speaking to a very surprised Gus.
He stared at Angel Sylvie and said, “I’m honored to have to have you in my shop. May I offer you something drink?”
Sylvie shook her head, “Thank you, no. I’m afraid we’re in a bit of a hurry today.
He pushed his glasses back up his nose and said, “Of course, of course, how can I help you?”

Raven and Murphy explained what they needed. In no time he had two of the newest Kindles Charged and ready to go. He registered then to Neekah Boo and Fatty and checked the both the 4G and Wi-Fi connections. They have Unlimited data, Unlimited Text, Worldwide Skype and a subscription to Amazon Prime. There’s a special deal right now which I’ve added for you, six months of Netflix free.”
Ms. Murphy paid for everything and after thanking Gus, they transported back to the house.
Pete turned around as they entered, “How did it go?”
Murphy held up the bag and said, “Success, They’re registered and loaded with the apps that they’ll need. While you guys pack the food, we’ll download some of the kitty movies that we all like.”
Flower said, “I think maybe you should download CATS The Musical too. Miss Neekah Boo likes music.”
Raven said, “You’re right, Flower, she does. But remember she can download any movies she likes too.”
They had selected bright green and pink cases and they finished loading the movies and put the tablets back in the gift bags.
The weather in Colorado was damp but not too cold. They materialized on Neekah Boo’s front porch and Pete knocked. Neekah Boo’s mom answered the door and Pete presented her with a bouquet of spring flowers, and a box of assorted chocolates. Talley came forward and told her that they had brought some nutritious soup and some treats.
Neekah Boo’s mom invited them in and Pete introduced the family. Whiskers said, “We know Neekah Boo needs her rest but we thought a sort visit might cheer her up.”
Flower added, “My sisters and I made Get well cards for her.”
Neekah Boo was napping when her mom ushered the family in to see her. She opened her eyes and a big smile appeared on her face. “Pete, Whiskers, Talley and oh you sweet babies, you all came to see me.”
Flower came over and handed her the cards they had made. As she opened them she sighed happily. She placed the lovely cards on her bedside table and said, “I’m so glad to see you!”
Talley brought the bag over and asked. “Is Fatty around? We have something for her too.” There was a meow outside the door and when Pete opened it Fatty ran in.
Whiskers handed Fatty her bag. Pete brought the gym bag to the bed and opened it showing Neekah Boo the books CDs and players.
Talley said we thought you needed something to entertain you while you were at the kitty hotel. Neekah Boo opened the bag and took out the Kindle Fatty did the same. Talley sat on the bed and quickly explained that they could read books, listen to music, watch movies, and make Skype and VOIP phone calls. She explained that they had unlimited data available and that they had subscriptions to Amazon and Netflix. Both Neekah Boo and Fatty were thrilled.

Neekah Boo tried to get up and winced as her leg hurt her. Pete came over and told her to rest. Talley moved and Pete sat down. Neekah Boo gave him a hug and said thank you all so much. Pete told her “Our Skype numbers are already programmed. If you want to talk to us just call… anytime.”
She sampled some of her treats and when it was time to go she was smiling. Fatty pressed a contact on her Skype screen and Neekah Boo’s Kindle Fire HD chimed. She picked it, opened and pressed answer. She saw Fatty’s smiling face on her screen. “This is so cool!” she said.
They all exchanged hugs and said goodbye and then Angel Sylvie transported them home. They were standing on the deck overlooking the lake. It was late afternoon and the sky was clearing. The air smelled clean and it was chilly but not freezing.
Pete looked at Whiskers and asked, “How would you like to have a cookout tonight? We could grill some burgers and hot dogs. Maybe the girls would make some sides?”
Whiskers nodded, “sounds good to me. What about you Flower? Would you like hot dogs and burgers?”
Flower nodded and rubbed his tummy. “It sounds great!”
Talley said, Potato salad, Corn on the cob and Cole Slaw, How does that sound.
Whiskers said, add some apple pie to that list and it sounds wonderful.
Inside, they filled the family in on their visit and told them that Neekah Boo seemed happier when they left.
Pete seemed happier too!
Whiskers and Pete joined Mitch on the evening shelter rounds and asked Chloe if she’d like to join them for dinner. She declined, saying that some of the kitties had invited her to have dinner with them.
When they returned to the house, Mitch showed them a recipe that he had come up with for burgers. He added shredded bread, egg and lots of parsley and celery to the ground beef. He seasoned it with salt, pepper and hot sauce and made patties. Pete saw that he had stretched the meat and created a wonderful smelling mix. Mitch said, “When you have a lot of kitties to feed and not a lot of meat this is a good recipe.”
It was also a delicious recipe. Dinner was great, and the kitties were all anxious to get over to the Castle Grounds to join the fun at A Queen Misty’s Movie night on the grounds. They packed some snacks and drove down the hill for more CC fun!

Earlier This Morning... ♥
Angel Maggie told the family, “Callie and I are preparing a big pot of soul warming, homemade chicken noodle soup. We used up just about every vegetable we had in the refrigerator, since we need to make a run to the farmer’s market later this week. It still has a couple of hours of simmering time before it’s ready, but we were wondering if perhaps Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy might like to deliver some to our furiend Neekah Boo. I’m sure Neekah Boo would love some company, especially to see you Pete.” Whiskers nodded saying, “That’s a wonderful idea Angel Maggie.” K. Pete said, “I think it’s a great idea too, but we probably shouldn’t stay too long. Neekah Boo is trying to recover from her hurt leg and we wouldn’t want to set back her progress. I would like to take her some books to read to occupy her mind while she is convalescing.” Flower and the kittens raised their paws in the air, not wanting to speak out of turn. K. Pete smiled and said, “What is it kids? Your input into our conversations is always welcome.” Flower spoke up, “My sisters and I made Get Well cards for Neekah Boo last night. Mama let us use her scrapbooking materials. We made pretty cards with lace, glitter and lots of pretty cutout paper. We wanted them to be as pretty as Neekah Boo! Do you think we could go with you Uncle Pete? We all promise to be good.” Flower and the kittens looked hopefully up at K. Pete. “Of course you can come kids. I think it might be nice for Neekah Boo to see furiends right now. We want her to know she is always in our thoughts and prayers, as well as her whole family.” Whiskers smiled and squeezed Talley’s paw. This family had so much love to give. It never ceased to amaze him. So it was decided. Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy would take K. Pete, Whiskers, Talley and the kittens to visit their furiend. Another blessed day was underway.

Later That Evening... ♥
Callie and Angel Maggie finished preparing the delicious smelling homemade Chicken Noodle soup for their dear friend Neekah Boo and her family. The kittens, Tabitha, Liliana and Daisy, had baked a fresh loaf of soft bread to go with the soup and Callie packed some Mini- Carrot Muffins that she had baked earlier in the morning. The girls packed everything up nicely for the family to deliver. Whiskers, K. Pete, Talley, Flower and the kittens put on their nicest, casual dress clothes and stepped onto the magical carpet with Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy. Traveling via “Angel Air” was always exhilarating!

In an instant, they were all at Neekah Boo’s front door. K. Pete stepped up to softly knock on the door. Flower and the kittens were very quiet and on their best behavior. Whiskers was so proud of them. Neekah Boo’s Mom answered the door, welcoming them all inside. She told them Neekah Boo and Fatty were resting upstairs in their room. Neekah Boo’s sweet Mom thanked them for the food as Whiskers and K. Pete helped her put the goodies in the kitchen. K. Pete , Whiskers and the family followed Neekah Boo’s Mom up the stairs to visit with their dear furiends.

Neekah Boo was resting quietly in her carrier with her sister Fatty sitting on the bed nearby, working on a crossword puzzle. Neekah Boo and Fatty saw their furiends and big, happy smiles spread over their pretty faces. Neekah Boo’s Mom said she would leave them all to visit, but would be back when it was time for Neekah Boo to rest.

K. Pete walked over to embrace his sweet furiend Neekah Boo. Whiskers and Talley hugged Fatty, letting the kittens have their turn. Talley hugged Neekah Boo, gently putting her paw on her shoulder and saying, “How are you feeling sweetie? You look beautiful as always, but how is your leg feeling?” Neekah Boo told her furiends she was recovering, but it was taking a lot of time and rest. Talley handed her furiend a box, beautifully tied with a gold ribbon. Talley said, “Open it dear furiend. I thought of you when I bought it.” Neekah Boo untied the ribbon, opening the box. She said, “Oh my goodness! It’s lovely.” Talley said, “It a hair brush made from boar bristles. They’re naturally soft and gentle on the fur. The handle is made from mother-of-pearl.” Neekah Boo mewed, “I love it! It looks like a piece of colorful jewelry!” Talley smiled, taking out the brush and saying, “Here, let me brush your fur while we visit. It always relaxes me to have my fur brushed.” Neekah Boo smiled broadly and said, “Oh Talley, I would love that!”

(CONTINUED FROM ABOVE) ♥
K. Pete smiled, putting a small box in Neekah Boo’s lap. I brought you a book of kitty poems my Dad gave to me. There are hundreds of delightful poems written by various authors. I enjoy reading poetry aloud. It’s very soothing for you and those around you. The other is a book called, “Unlikely Loves.” It’s filled with stories that offer a heartwarming look at animals of different species, who have a deep, loving attachment to one another. It makes one trust the essential goodness of life. I think you’ll enjoy it. And it has stunning photos of the animals in each story.” Neekah Boo ran her delicate paws over the book covers. She said, “Thank you dear Pete. I love them already, even before I read them!”

Flower and the kittens stood quietly by bed, not wanting to be disruptive. K. Pete told Neekah Boo, “Flower and his sisters have something for you too. The kittens gingerly stepped up to Neekah Boo. Flower spoke up, “My sisters and I made you some Get Well cards with our own paws. We hope you like them. We tried to make them as pretty as you!” Neekah Boo took the beautiful cards, holding them to her breast. She mewed, “I’ll treasure them always.” Neekah Boo took the kids in her outspread arms and gave them a big group hug. Talley finished brushing Neekah Boo’s lustrous fur, giving her a soft kiss on her cheek and putting the brush on her dresser. Whiskers stepped up to his tiny, fragile furiend and said, “I’m afraid I only brought myself. But with me comes undying furiendship and a big hug.” Whiskers gave her a big, warm hug.

Just then there was a light knock on the door and Neekah Boo’s entered with a smile. Neekah Boo and Fatty showed the gifts to their Mom. K. Pete sighed, knowing it was time for their furiends to get some rest. He said, “My sisters Angel Maggie and Callie made you some chicken soup. The girls promise it is good for whatever ails you.” Neekah Boo’s Mom said, “I’m warming up the delicious food you brought right now. I want my girls to try to eat something now and then get some rest. Thank you all for visiting.”

Whiskers, Talley and the kids hugged Neekah Boo and Fatty goodbye, promising to be back soon. K. Pete hugged both girls. He put his arm around Neekah Boo and said, “We’ll be praying for you to get well soon sweet kitty. You are all always in my thoughts. I’m counting the days until you are back on your paws, beautiful Neekah Boo.” He gave her a gentle kiss and mewed good bye. The family followed Neekah Boo’s Mom downstairs. Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy had used a little Angel magic to set the table for Neekah’s Boo family. Neekah Boo’s Mom wished them all well and in a blink of an eye, they were transported back home.

We love you Neekah Boo. We’ll be praying for you dear furiend!

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
We hope and pray you are feeling a little better each day. Talley and I and the whole family say a prayer for you every morning before we start our day, and every evening before we go to sleep. We also pray for your Mom and Dad's family.

Our weather here in California is fine, maybe a little hot for April, but Talley and K. Pete's family live in Florida where they have been getting lots of rain and thunderstorms. We haven't heard any bad news from them, but then K. Pete's Dad is always prepared and on top of any situation. I'm pretty sure they are fine. If I hear otherwise, you'll be the first to know dear furiend.

My sisters are making some delicious homemade chicken soup today, to bring over to you and your family. We'll be stopping by to visit you later, just for a short while, to check on how you're doing. Of course we'll be coming by Angel Air, courtesy of Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy-Fur, K. Pete's sisters. Get lots of rest sweetie. Sending you pawsitive healing thoughts and prayers.

I left a vote with purrs, hugs and a poem to make you smile.

Here Kitty Kitty Kitty! =^.^=
~~~~~
You talk to me as if I'm three,
Coo and pinch my cheeks.
I'm not three, I'm ten,
a WOMAN in kitty years!
Must you scream,"NO NO Kitty,"
as if I'm deaf?
I'm not deaf,
I have you on IGNORE!

You insist that I love tuna,
faithfully fill my dish.
I don't like tuna,
come on where's the BEEF?

Seems you buy the silliest toys,
mice, feathers and such.
Then wonder why I shred the couch,
did ya think I might be BORED!!!

Why do you squeal in that high pitched voice,
"Here kitty kitty kitty?"
I've never come before,
I'm NOT coming this time!

Flower spoke up, “My sisters and I made Get Well cards for Neekah Boo last night. Mama let us use her scrapbooking materials. We made pretty cards with lace, glitter and lots of pretty cutout paper. We wanted them to be as pretty as Neekah Boo! Do you think we could go with you Uncle Pete? We all promise to be good.”
How could I say no?
I couldn't so they'll be coming. So, Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy will be bring me, Whiskers, Talley and the kittens to visit with you. I'm bringing you some books of poetry and some stories that my dad wrote so you have something to read while you're at the "kitty hotel".

Purrs and Hugs sweet Neekah Boo,
Pete

Hi Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
We’re pawing by very late for us today. My Mom’s car broke down today while she was out running errands. She had to wait two long hours for a tow truck. It was a crazy Monday for all of us. The mechanic just called and told Mom the fuel pump needs to be replaced to the tune of $680.00. Yikes! Hopefully they can fix it tomorrow. We hope your day was much better!

I left a vote with purrs and warm hugs. We're always praying for you sweetie. We hope your leg is feeling better. Give your dear Mom a big hug for us. We're also praying for your Dad and his family. We love you sweet kitty.

Hi Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
Today was sunny and warm, just perfect. Callie and I were catnapping in our cat beds in the backyard under the awning. A big blue jay was very brave, hopping around the deck right in front of us, practically asking to be eaten. Mom saw us chattering at the bird, trying to hypnotize it. So what did that mean ole Mom do? Yep, she scared the birdie away. No fun around here. MOL!

We hope your feeling a little better today sweetie. We always have you, and your precious family in our prayers. Give Fatty and your Mom big hugs for us. We love you dear furiend.

Cats in Every Space =^.^=
~~~~~
I live a very simple life
with cats in every space
But when I got to bed at night
they sleep upon my face

Now to live without the luxury
of cats in every space
Would be to live a sorry life
in a very sorry place.

I've never been without a cat
and this I can uphold
I'll have a cat in every space
Until I'm gray and old.

For every fool should be aware
that cats are complex creatures
they live about in every space
And give the house its features.

Now take my house away from me
and place me in a tent
I'll have a cat in every space
And still I'll be content.

We also have you in our prayers sweet furiend. We are so very sorry you aren't feeling good and have to be put into your kitty carrier. I know how much I hate being in that thing too.

Hi Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
It wasn’t supposed to rain here today, but the news got that wrong. It has been pouring off and on all morning. The sun started peeking out for a while, so Mom let me outside because I was meowing at the door. Then Mom went about her cleaning. She finally noticed it was raining hard. Callie had come inside, but I was stuck in the backyard under the back awning. Mom yelled at me to come in, but I didn’t want to get wet, so I sat there and stared at her. She finally came out and we both got drenched. MOL! Whitey & Orangie were watching from the window upstairs, probably laughing.

We hope you are starting to feel better dear furiend. We haven't heard from you in a while and hope you are getting lots of rest. We always have you, your sweet Mom and pretty sister Fatty in our prayers. Give them big hugs for us. I know my whole family would love to have you and Fatty over again for dinner. We really enjoyed your company!

I left a vote with warm hugs and purrs. We hope you all have a great Friday and stay warm!

I'm Only Human
~~~~~
Because I'm only human,
it's sometimes hard to be
the wise, all knowing creature
that my cat expects of me.

And so I pray for special help,
to somehow understand
the subtle implications,
of each proud miaowed command.

Oh, let me not forget that chairs
were put on earth to shred;
and what I like to call a lap
is actually a cat-bed.

I know it's really lots to ask
but please, oh please, take pity;
and though I'm only human,
make me worthy of my kitty!

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, It's me Pete,
I just wanted to stop by and tell you that I'm thinking about you. I miss on the days that we don't talk. Maybe we could have dinner with the family Saturday if you and Fatty would like to join us at Whiskers and Talley's house! Whiskers and I can cook outside and we can have a barbeque feast.

Hi Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
We hope and pray you are doing better dear furiend. Try to get plenty of rest. We want you back on your pretty paws real soon! Give your sweet Mom and Fatty big hugs for us.

Today is the last day for any scheduled rain. This weekend the temperatures are predicted to be in the mid-eighties! From cold to hot in a few days. This is going to be quite a year.

Not much going on here today. Mom is feeling much better from her cold. She is back to torturing us with her spring-cleaning!

Last evening, there were five peacocks that had escaped from their owners yard. For some reason, they all congregated on the roof of our garage. Dad was not pleased. Mom uploaded on my CC page, one of the pictures she took from her iphone. Mom finally shooed them away by turning the water hose on, pretending to water the plants. Mom didn’t spray them, just wanted them to go back home. It worked! Mom says Dad is a grouchy, mean man! MOL! Dad doesn't like the big peacocks walking on our roof.

I left a vote with many hugs and soft purrs.

ODE TO THE CAT
~~~~~
Some cats are dark and others are light
They come in black, gray, orange and white.
If you are having a boring day
Throw them some catnip and watch them play.
They sometimes quarrel but never fight:
They’re seldom wrong and always right.
Some like to seen, some like to be heard
And always love to have the last word!
Our friendship’s a gift, they’re quick to explain
We’re very proud and a trifle vain.
It feels so good when they cuddle and purr
As you stroke their silky downy fur.
They’ll race you to your favorite chair
Then pretend to sleep – or just smile and stare!
They take great delight in catching a mouse
Especially one who dares enter your house!
And one thing I know for sure to be true -
Any cat will be happy if he lives with YOU!

Hi Neekah Boo
We are having a cold day today, it is raining, damp and drippy and only 34*. We have been in the upper 40's to 60* all week, one day we had so much wind we thought we were gonna be furless.

Mom said that all this rain is good cause "April showers bring May flowers", do you think this is true??? Mom seems to think it is.

I had 'mom time' all to myself for about 20 minutes today. When mom got up, I was the only kitty who was awake so I got to be loved and petted all by myself, then Winston had to wake up and come and spoil all my mom time.

Our Tigers got rained out today. They won their 1st 2 games against the Royals and today were supposed to play the Orioles, so I guess they will have a make-up game sometime later!

It is almost time for my beauty nap, so I am gonna let you go now. I hope you have a pawsome afternoon.

Purrs & Pawhuggz

Hi Neekah Boo, Fatty & Mom!
We hope your are feeling better pretty Neekah Boo and getting lots of rest. You and your family are always in our prayers. Mom is doing much better from her cold. She even brought out the vacuum monster today! MOL!

Queen Angel Misty’s Coronation was beautiful. We were late in attending, but were on time for the wonderful feast! Hail to our new Queen Angel Misty, long live King Tucker and a warm kitty welcome to our new nominees Meeko & Angel Bootz!

It rained here very hard all day yesterday. All of us kitties got scared when we heard some thunder. My sister Callie was frightened enough to run and hide under the bed with Whitey, Orangie and me of course. It’s funny how Callie’s dislike of Whitey and Orangie goes out the window when she is scared enough. MOL!

Hopefully the weather will start warming up for everyone soon. We’re always praying for our furiends and their families in need.

I left a vote with soft purrs and warm hugs.

K. Pete sent me this beautiful poem from a book of Cat Poems. I just had to share it with my furiends.

Oh, Mactavish Macbee
you are so amazing to me-
without so much as a stir
(as I ask where can he be?)
I look up to see,
you now sitting on the banister...

As your gaze meets mine
you instantly jump down,
then I hear a little meow,
as sweet as it can be-
you take a little bow
and softly rub against my knee.

Where are you now,
I don't see you in sight...
then, you appear,
as if you had wings
to take flight-
upon a Greek statue
you alight,
from this earth you momentarily disappear-
with the gods
you seem perfectly right...

With such balletic grace
you leap without a sound-
Baryshnikov himself,
you would not fail to astound;
I have to admit you make me feel
with some disgrace,
how clumsy is the human race.

As if you had little slippers to wear
you gently creep up the stair....
do I catch a little chagrin
in that Cheshire grin
as you see me standing in
my underwear...

Foolish at times
us mere mortals must seem
with our cares...
you who have the Wisdom of Solomon
in your sophisticated airs...

Yet I can discern
in your plaintive plea,
when the world has deserted me,
a most genuine concern...

And in your soulful eyes
of the purest intent,
as you curl up by my feet,
I take such comfort in your content.

-Lora Hollings

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, It's me Pete,
I just wanted to stop by and see how you are feeling. I hope your poor foot is feeling better today. We have you in our prayers and when you feel better, we would like to have you and Fatty come over for a cook out. Whiskers and I will cook pork ribs, chicken and beef brisket on the grill and Maggie and Callie & the rest of the girls will make the side dishes. We'll watch a movie and have a good time.
Today was the first day of the Party Marathon at the Blues Lounge, and I would love it if you and Fatty would come by and have some fun. (I know you can't dance right now, but we could watch other kitties and listen to the music!
Purrs and headbonks sweet girl, Pete

Hi Neekah Boo & Fatty!
I'm so glad you and your pretty sister had a great time last night. We all enjoyed having you both over and hope you can come back real soon.

My asthma is doing fine. My Mom watches over me like a hawk. Right now my Mom still has a nasty cold, but she rested all day yesterday and feels much better this morning. She even took a day off without bringing that ole noisy vacuum monster out. MOL!

I'm sorry to hear you stained your leg again. I hope you get some rest and feel better today. I know how much our Moms worry about us when we are not feeling well. You and your sweet family are always in our prayers. You are very dear furiends to us. Give your Mom a warm hug for us.

I left you a vote with soft purrs and warm hugs. Furiends furever!

Talley checked the table for the umpteenth time
The silver was polished to a mirror finish, the crystal glasses gleamed with not a single smudge or water spot, the plates were perfectly positioned and the floral Centerpiece of red white and pink sweetheart roses that Whitey and Orangie had arranged was a thing of beauty!
Angel Maggie told her that she didn’t need to fuss, the dinner would be perfect. Whiskers came downstairs carrying a long paper banner. He was surrounded by the four kittens; Tabitha, Daisy, Liliana and of course his little shadow, Flower. They had made the banner. It was elegantly lettered and the borders were covered with excellent drawings of the spring flowers that they hoped to see in the flower beds soon. It read, “Welcome, Neekah Boo and Fatty!” Whiskers had tape and was heading to the front door to place the banner over the door. He asked Talley to give him a hand. Talley followed them and once it was properly centered he taped it in place.
Daisy looked up at it and asked, “Do you think Miss Neekah Boo will see it?”
Whiskers stepped back and looked at the banner. “Yes, Daisy, I’m sure she’ll see it.” He said.
Liliana asked Talley, “Do you think she’ll like it?”

Talley assured her that Neekah Boo would love it.
Inside the house Pearl had gotten up at the crack of dawn and had begun dusting and vacuuming. The in house vacuum system simply required plugging in a hose to receptacles in every room. All of the noise and dust was in the basement. The kittens had joined in, wanting to help and they had polished every piece of furniture in the house. Murphy and Raven had taken charge of the silver polishing each already immaculate piece to be sure that every piece was perfect. Talley had made her apples pies early and they were even now cooling and filling the house with a delectable aroma.
When the silver polishing was done, Raven and Ms Murphy began to make the ice cream!
It was almost time for Neekah Boo and her sister to arrive, Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvia would be bringing them on their magic carpet!
When it was close to time Duchess Callie put the fettuccine into boiling salted water that had been infused with dill weed. She set her timer for twelve minutes, and added the sour cream to the stroganoff a little bit at a time stirring gently.
There was a flash of angel dust on the front porch. Neekah Boo and Fatty had arrived. Pete answered the door. Neekah Boo was lovely in a soft smoke gray silver silk ankle length skirt and a ruffled cream silk blouse. Fatty who was anything but fat, was beautiful too, in a simple black dress.
Neekah Boo had seen the banner and smiled as the kittens ran up to be introduced. Daisy Told her, “Miss Neekah Boo, we made the banner to welcome you. We’re so happy to meet you!”
Flower said, “Uncle Pete said you’re a really good pilot, I’m going to be a pilot too!
Pearl came into the hallway and said, “Kitten’s let Miss Neekah Boo and her sister come in the house.”
Whiskers scooped his little buddy up for a hug and carried him in to the living room as he welcomed Neekah Boo and Fatty to his and Talley’s home.
In the living room the two guests were introduced to Mitch and Pearl and then Whitey and Orangie. Fatty looked into the kitchen and asked Maggie if she might take a look. The multiple ovens, cooktops and refrigerators amazed her. Callie showed her the walk-in cooler and the big freezer room. She laughed and said, “You could open a restaurant here!”

Maggie nodded in agreement. Pete added more wood to the fireplace, While Talley and Whiskers led Neekah Boo and Fatty on a tour of the house, when they reached the top floor and the observatory both Neekah Boo and Fatty were awed by the beautiful astrophotographs that Whiskers had taken.
The dinner was superb, and the guests were entertained by the delightful conversation of Flower and his sisters. Neekah Boo complimented Flower on having a lovely name and he replied that he was named for the little skunk in Bambi. He matter-of-factly explained that his skunk mother somehow lost him during one of the early storms and that Pearl had saved him from freezing and starving and that she had adopted him.
He said,“I love my mom and my sisters and they love me. Then Uncle Pete and Whiskers and their families helped us, and now, we can be anything we want if we work hard enough.”
Neekah Boo was sobered by the forthrightness of the little skunk. She said, “You are a remarkable kitten Flower, My sister and I are so glad to know you, and to be your friends.”
When dinner was served Neekah Boo enjoyed the fresh salmon immensely and she complimented the chefs more than once. Dessert was special because Neekah Boo had brought Cuppy Cakes that she had made and Whiskers was able to have both of his favorite desserts on one plate.
After dinner, Whiskers set the theater up and screened the Aristocats. All of the kitties loved it. After the sleeping kittens were put to bed, Pete showed Neekah Boo the simulator and Neekah took Fatty for a simulated flight around Castle Airfield. Fatty was so excited she asked if she could go flying with Neekah Boo for real sometime. Pete told her that Neekah Boo could use the Royal Aircraft as if they were her own, and that she could take her flying anytime!
Fatty clapped and asked Neekah Boo, “Will you take me up? Neekah Boo hugged her sister and told her “Whenever you want to go up we’ll go.”
Neekah Boo and Fatty thanked Whiskers and Talley and were soon ready to board the magic carpet for their trip home. After goodbyes and farewells, Talley and Whiskers joined the family in the living room. Mitch added a couple of logs to the fire and served coffee.
Talley said, “I think they had a good time!”
Pete asked, “You think so?”
Talley said, “Yes I do. Neekah is shy, but I can tell she had a great time!”
Pete nodded, satisfied!
They all agreed it was time for bed and made their way up the stairs to their rooms. Whiskers and Talley said their prayers and once in bed, kissed goodnight before drifting off to sleep!

Hi Neekah Boo & family! See you tonight!
Talley and Whiskers were reminiscing about the wonderful birthday celebration yesterday. Whiskers kissed Talley softly on her cheek saying, “I’m so glad your sisters and your Dad had a nice time, but I was sad to see Raven so unhappy when she thought of her beau Angel Charlie. Hasn’t she heard from him since he crossed the Rainbow Bridge? I was so sure he wouldn’t be able to stay away too long from his kitty love. I’m sure it is all just a matter of time.” Talley nodded her head. “I know Angel Charlie loved my sister with all his heart. We just have to pray they meet up again soon. Time will tell. We better get ready for our day sweetheart. Neekah Boo and Fatty will be here this evening. I’m so excited to have them over to our house!”

Whitey and Orangie were in the kitchen with the kittens, preparing baked eggs French style, enriched with a bit of butter and cream and served in individual ramekins. Rounding out the meal was cider-glazed sausages, colorful raspberry-lemon muffins and a compote of fresh citrus fruits. Whitey poured non-alcoholic sparkling mimosas for everyone.

Whiskers and Talley joined the family who were already sitting at the table enjoying a cup of delicious Venetian coffee this morning. Whiskers pulled out a chair for his beautiful wife. The aromas coming the kitchen always triggered a growl from Whisker’s tummy. Whitey smiled, considering it as a compliment to the chefs. Mitch reported that when he had escorted Chloe back to the boathouse last night, she was happier than he had ever deemed imaginable. Mitch said, “It really warms my heart to see what having family and furiends does to make someone happy. It’s a blessed miracle to see Chloe so radiant.” K. Pete smiled broadly saying it was the family’s pleasure to help out a fellow feline. He said, “Chloe’s talents will take her far. She just needed a little assistance and encouragement.” The family joined paws and said a prayer for all their furiends and families in need. Flower took his cue from his Uncle Whiskers, filling his plate with the cider-glazed sausages. Whiskers smiled at the precious little skunk. Flower and the kittens had fast become loving members of the family.

Callie and Angel Lady Maggie would be helping with tonight’s special dinner. Neekah Boo and her sister Fatty would be joining the family, so they wanted everything to be perfect for their furiends. Tonight they would be serving Salmon Stroganoff, the classic stroganoff in a sauce thickened with sour cream, but with salmon instead of beef. It would be served on a bed of fettuccine with dill butter and accompanied by snow peas and cucumber slices. The wine served would be a white California Chardonnay from Raymond Winery in Napa Valley, one of the wineries the kitties had toured when they were in California. Talley was preparing her delectable apple pies with French vanilla bean ice cream. Angel Maggie, Talley and Callie would be decorating the dining room table with a beautiful white linen tablecloth, set with the crystal glassware and sparkling silver flatware, gifts from Talley and Whisker’s wedding. Talley loved using her wedding gifts for special occasions. Having their dear furiends Neekah Boo and Fatty to their house certainly qualified as a very special event! Angel Sylvie and Angel Lucy would be using their angel magic to bring Neekah Boo and her sister over to the house. Whiskers knew Neekah Boo and Fatty would get a real thrill riding on their magic carpet. Whiskers enjoyed the magic carpet rides almost as much as flying.

Whiskers and Talley went to their room to change into something warm before starting their shelter rounds. Raven and Ms. Murphy would be spending some more time with Chloe today, learning how to use all the features on her new sewing machine. The girls knew it would take a few days to master the amazing digital machine and they wanted Chloe to take her time, not feeling overwhelmed. Whiskers knew his sisters, Raven and Ms. Murphy had tremendous patience, making them excellent teachers. Whiskers helped Talley on with her snow boots. Whiskers said, “I spoke with my Mom this morning. I could barely recognize her voice. She seems to have lost her voice with this cold. Her head is feeling better though. Mom is going to stay in bed today, hoping she just needs to ride the cold out by resting. Plus she doesn’t want to spread her cold germs back to Dad. That would be awful!

Whiskers and Talley met K. Pete, Mitch, Ms. Murphy and Raven out by the SUV. Pearl had packed some boxes filled with the raspberry-lemon muffins the girls had baked. On the trip to the shelters, Whiskers kissed Talley and mewed, “I’m so excited to have our dear furiend Neekah Boo and her sister over today. This will be our first dinner party with guests, if you don’t count all the dinner parties we have with the family!” Talley kissed her husband back saying, “I love you my darling Whiskers. It will be a wonderful evening!”

I left you a vote with purrs and warm hugs dear furiend!
