Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
We hope you had a nice weekend. We had the house to ourselves on Sunday while Mom and Dad were out running errands. We had on and off showers on Saturday and are expecting rain again today. It hasn’t been much, but we’ll take whatever we can get. Mom took Callie and me on our stroller walk this morning so we could fill the bucket by the creek with water. The creek is still dry.:(

Whitey and Orangie are doing well, spending a lot more time in the backyard. Hopefully when it starts to get warmer, they’ll both learn to use their outside cat beds, at least in the evenings.

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

Independence =^.^=
~~~~~
I should have
been named Independence
because that's how I live my life.
No human ever orders me around.
I'll sneak away
spend the day in hiding
who cares if they're looking for me.
Perhaps there's a time I might decide
to give my human a treat.
I'll jump on her lap
let her stroke and pet
turn on my purring machine.
I truly delight
to rub my nice human
and circle her legs with great joy.
To those in the know
I look independent
but there's really a softy inside.

Dear Neekah Boo & Mom Shel,
OMC!! My pawrents found a box on our doorstep this evening. It was all my toys from you two! Furry things, catnipped, shiny balls, mouse and other toys and that beautiful, beautiful blankie to sleep on! My dear furiends, I thank you so very much! Your card was wonderful, too, and I'll cherish your words forever. Words cannot convey my pleasure and joy with my presents, and the lovingness that is our close furiendship. You are both so very kind. Angel Malachi came down and looked and he smiled a big cat smile. He said, "I see you have some good furiends, Mason".

Oh, dear thank you ever so much. You are furiends beyond compare. I will always be here for you both and my Mama, too, will.

I left a vote on your page, and hopes that you both have had a fantastic Friday. I sure have and it's thanks to you! XOXOXO

Purrs & hugs,
Mason

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
We’re running a little bit late today. My Mom and I were working on my blogs when she got a call from Ebony and Sugar Bear’s Dad, next door. Their Mom Abarna had a doctor’s appointment today, but he was having car problems. My Mom would have lent him one of our cars, but both cars are stick shift and their Dad doesn’t know how to use a clutch. (Dad drives the automatic van to work because of his ankle.) That’s okay; my Mom drove Abarna to see her doctor. Abarna is doing okay, still congested, but nothing that a lot of rest won’t cure.

When Mom came back home, we were all sitting in the bay windows downstairs patiently waiting for her. Mom said we all looked so well behaved and innocent. She looked around to see if we had gotten into anything. Nope! We were purrfect little angels. MOL! Mom opened a fresh bag of Wildside Salmon for us and there were treats all around. Yay!

Give your Mom a big hug for us. We hope your leg is doing okay and hope the cold weather isn't bothering your leg too much. We always have your family in our prayers sweetie.

Here’s a vote with purrs, hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

Cats Don't Care =^.^=
~~~~~
Cats don't care what dogs think
they just look down and sorta wink.
Perch themselves way up high
the dog barks and starts to cry.
It's really not fair, those agile cats
hiding in places just like rats.
The dog wants to play, join in the fun
chase that cat, make it run.
But cats care less, don't need to play fair
like to tease, don't have a care.
Poor dog sits and wonders why?
Sly old cat naps with a sigh.
Dog keeps guard, waiting for a twitch
cat doesn't move, not even for an itch.
The game goes on, cat unaware
the dogs just pleads, please care.

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
My Mom was trimming my fur this morning and noticed quite a bit of gray fur on me. She didn’t know cats sometimes go gray as part of the natural aging process. Since I’m a tuxedo cat, the gray fur is more noticeable, especially around my face. Mom says I look dignified. MOL! Hey, I still feel like a kitten!

We hope you and your sweet Mom are staying warm. We always have you both in our prayers dear furiend. We love you!

We read this wonderful pet cat poem we wanted to share with our furiends.
Here’s a vote with purrs, hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

Prayer For My Cat =^.^=
~~~~~
Treat me kindly, dear master. Accord me the courtesy due to a cat — and I for my part will love you, amuse you and cheer your heart as only a cat can do.

Give me a sunny spot to sleep in when morning dawns and I will warm your lap on cold evenings.

Respect my independence and my need to walk alone at times and I will look after myself, so that you may come and go as you please.

Speak to me in our secret kitty language, let me hear my name sung in the music of your voice, and I will meow happily in sweet harmony with you.

Stroke my fur gently and lovingly and I will soothe you with the soft purrs that can only come from a happy cat.

Indulge my curiosity and I will show you the joys of bird watching, star gazing and other kitty pleasures.

Play with me and see me rejoice! Toss a humble ball of yarn and I will delight you with my cleverness and acrobatic leaps.

But do not laugh at me or allow me to be teased for there is nothing I prize more than my dignity.

Keep my surroundings neat and clean and I will be fastidious in my habits.

Feed me and be fair and I will teach you how to tell “kitty time” by instinct and tummy tunes.

And when I am old and the time comes to say farewell, hold me gently in your arms and I will go without a whimper.

For with you I am trusting, safe and secure. A cat who walked alone but loved you with a full and happy heart.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
We love including you in all our stories dear furiend. K. Pete adores you and we love to see him happy. He is a very special cat, just purrfect for you. You would make a lovely Princess or Queen!

We're sorry to hear your leg is still hurting, but we have you in our prayers every day and hope they'll be answered someday soon. The cold, snowy weather you're getting probably isn't good for you, but just stay inside your lovely home where its warm and cozy.

Give your sweet Mom a warm hug for us sweetie. We love you both very much!

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
There’s not too much going on here today except grocery shopping and house cleaning. That means the vacuum monster has been let loose! Our weather is overcast and windy today. When Mom took Callie and me on our stroller walk this morning, the leaves were blowing all over the place keeping us cats on high alert. MOL!

My Mom went next door to check on our neighbor and Ebony and Sugar Bear. The cats were napping in the bay window and their Mom Abarna is getting stronger every day.

We hope you are all staying safe and warm in the snowy weather you're getting hit with. Give your dear Mom a warm hug for us sweetie. We hope your leg isn't hurting too much from the cold weather! We love you Neekah Boo and always have you and your Mom in our prayers.

We hope you all have a quiet, warm and relaxing Monday.

Just A Cat =^.^=
~~~~~
She is - just a cat.
A very small presence
doesn't take up much space.
Large green eyes
much too big for her face.
She is - just a friend.
Happy to be greeting you
while purring a tune
improving how you feel
and never, too soon.
She is - just a joy.
Guarding windows
sleeping on the bed
chasing unseen ghosts
until she's fed.
She is - just yours.
No other will do
her choice is clear
with anyone else
she will just disappear.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
The weather is a bit windy and overcast with no rain in sight. We are all doing fine, catnapping in the windows. My Mom made a trip to Petco this morning for our food and a few treats. Today is our Dad’s last day of vacation after a week off. He’s been going with us on our stroller walks and we’ll miss him.

We hope your feeling better sweet furiend. We saw on the mews your state will be getting a lot of snow. We'll keep you and your dear Mom in our prayers.

Found A New Home =^.^=
~~~~~
Left by the road, nobody cared
I really hoped that I would be spared.
Out for a walk, along came a friend
heard my cry, I knew she would bend.
Called kitty kitty, then picked me up
I was so small like a little tea cup.
Went for a ride, found a new home
no longer lost, never alone.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
Sorry we haven’t been by to meow to you lately. My Mom has been helping out next door with Ebony, Sugar Bear and their Mom Abarna while she recuperates. My pawrents have also been working to get their taxes done and filed, while my Dad is on school break this week.

Needless to say, us cats have been neglected, but Mom promises to make it up to us. Humph! We’ll see. I’m working on my list! MOL!

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

Window of Time =^.^=
~~~~~
She sits at the window
frozen in time.
What does she really see?
Ghosts from the past
a thousand years old
creatures we don't understand.
Tail twitching, body poised
not moving an inch
mesmerized by the world outside.
A quiet little mouse,
white tailed deer,
or shadows from wind blown trees.
I look, I stare
but I just don't see
the view from cat's eyes so intense.
Hours pass, the cat stands guard,
sky bleeding night black to dawn gray.
Night after night
at the window of time
what stories unfold out of sight?

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
Concatulations to your Mom sweet furiend! We're still doing a happy dance for her! Now we just need to get you to start feeling better! Then we can we really celebrate! We love you dear furiend and always have you and your precious Mom in our prayers.

The sun was shining today and the next few days will be unseasonably warm here for February. We’ll be in the mid to high 70’s. San Diego, where GM lives, will be in the mid 80’s. Yikes! It doesn’t look good for our creek. (Heavy sigh!)

My Mom feeds and checks on Ebony and Sugar Bear every morning and in the evening - sometimes in-between. Ebony always greets Mom by jumping into her arms as soon as she walks through the door. My Mom braces herself for it, because the first day Ebony almost knocked Mom off her feet. MOL! The kitties are fine, missing their Mom Abarna. The doctor will assess Abarna’s condition on Friday and hopefully she can come home.

We left a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and prayers for those in need.

WITH LOVE ...TO MY CATS

They are my friends -
a constant joy
Faithful companions,
not meant as a toy!
Beauty and grace in their walk
in their hearts
Happiness giving. . .
Never forsaking -
Thankful for living.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
We apologize for not being able to meow to all our CC furiends, but Mom has been helping our next door neighbor take care of the cats, Ebony and Sugar Bear, whom are both doing fine. Their Mom Abarna is still in the hospital, and probably will be there for a few more days. She looks better but the doctor wants to keep a watchful eye on her congested lungs. Thank you for your prayers and get well wishes. My Mom has passed them along to Abarna who smiles when she hears about the CC furiends who are praying for her.

The sun has been shining,- no more rain in sight, but the creek still has a little bit of water flowing in it. Mom finally took Callie and me for a walk in our cat stroller this morning. Whitey and Orangie are fine, still enjoying their time in the backyard exploring, but not yet staying outside long enough to cat nap.

We're glad your Mom's court date is over, but now I guess the waiting is just as bad. Give her a warm hug for us sweetie. We have all of you wrapped in our prayers. We love you.

CLEANLINESS IS NEXT TO... =^.^=

Just as I had passed my tongue
Over every inch of me;

Cleaned, burnished, and polished to an even sleekness,
You touched me,
And now it's to do
All over again.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
Ebony and Sugar Bear’s Mom Abarna is in the hospital with pneumonia, so Mom is taking care of the kitties at their home. Their Mom was suffering from a bad cold, which turned out to be much worse. Her son is staying at the hospital with her until she comes home. We’ll keep you posted.

We did get a lot of rain and wind over the weekend, enough to make the creek run a little bit. But the rain is over for now and temperatures in the mid 70’s are expected later this week.

Give your dear Mom a big hug for us sweetie. We know her big day is coming up this month and we have her in our prayers every night without fail. You too dear furiend. We love you both very much.

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty & Mom!
It finally started to rain here around noon. The temperature is warm, in the sixties, but the rain is really coming down. We hope it lasts a while. This is purrfect weather for catnapping in our windowsill beds.

We hope you have a nice relaxing weekend with your family. We have our paws crossed that our furiends back east get a break from the snow.

DADDY'S CAT =^.^=
~~~~~
Daddy's asleep now in his favorite chair,
He looks very lonely, just lying there;
His lap looks so empty, he breathes a deep sigh.
Quick, jump, little kitty, sing your purr lullaby.

They say Daddy was not a cat person before,
That is, until you came through the door.
Now he can't go to sleep without you very near,
With your soft, velvet paw and your purr full of cheer.

Settle in little kitty, cuddle up, snuggle tight,
For Daddy needs love, especially this night;
It's been a hard day at his job, don't you know,
And he's tired and worn from the strife and the woe.

So give him your best, he needs it just now,
Comfort him, kitty, and give him your vow
To always be near him, I know in your heart
You'll love him forever 'til death do you part.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
It really does look like rain is on the horizon for us. It was cloudy and windy on our stroller walk this morning. The sound of the leaves blowing along the trail kept Callie and me on high alert. My Mom laughed at us and told us to relax. We filled the water bucket by the creek in case it doesn’t rain until tonight. We stopped when we heard a loud woodpecker, coming from a tall tree. We couldn’t see him, but he sounded like he was chopping the tree down. MOL! I told Mom we need to bring binoculars next time.

We all got to spend some time in the backyard, but the wind kept kicking up and scaring us, so we finally all decided to come in and claim our catnapping spots by the windows. Ebony and Sugar Bear’s Mom has a very bad chest cold, so Mom is making some chicken soup for her and for dinner tonight. Mom always boils a separate chicken breast for us kitties. Yummy!

We know your Mom's court date is this month so we have her in our prayers every day. We hope you are feeling better sweetie. Give your Mom a warm hug for us. We love you both very much.

We hope all our CC furiends and their families are staying warm and safe.

Cats On Birds =^.^=
~~~~~
They're difficult to eat;
you can crush their hollow bones,
but the feathers choke you,
and the real bird's so much smaller
than they look with those tails and wings.
The game's the thing.

Cats with no training whatsoever
coolly perform the feats of acrobats.
We excel in every possible move
on the gameboard: we play to win.
Birds are the pieces that fly off the board
into their own dimension
while we stare and switch our tails,
gravity-bound.

Yet whether by accident or skill,
sometime against all odds you'll catch,
pierce, hold the trashing wings,
master the powers of air. It's worth
a lifetime's stalking, pouncing, getting fooled.
Feathers be damned.

My Mom took Callie and me for a walk this morning and we said to meow to our little yappy furiend and his jogger. We filled the water bucket back up by the creek and saw a couple of squirrels along the way. Then Mom made a trip to Petco for us. Mom had ten dollars in Petco rewards she needed to use.

The sun is shining here today, but it’s also house cleaning day and the noisy vacuum monster has been let loose. Since my Mom doesn’t feel comfortable yet letting Whitey and Orangie out in the backyard unsupervised, we all had to be holed up in the bedroom until she was finished vacuuming. Not fair!

Good mews is we’re expecting rain this Friday through Sunday. Whoo hoo! We’ll believe it when we see it. We have our paws crossed.

Dish Bottom Phobia! =^.^=
~~~~~
I know I just ate some ten minutes ago,
But I felt in the mood for a snack.
And, lo and behold, when I looked in my dish,
I saw the dish bottom look back.
See? Come and see if I'm telling the truth!
Oh... this has upset me severely!
Yes I know there's kibble on that side and this,
but I can see dish-bottom clearly!

I stared in the dish and I measured the place
that was empty, and let out a cry!
What if I finished this part and that part?
It would all be dish-bottom! I'd die!
How can you cruelly ignore my complaint?
The kibble was low, and you knew it!
You're acting as if it was piled to the rim,
while I can see dish-bottom through it!

I nibbled some here and I nibbled some there
and I dropped one or two, being furious.
But nothing improved in this tragic affair,
the state of my dish is so serious!
I'm not kidding! Oh, please come and see the bare spot
on the dish bottom, do as I wish!
Then I guess you don't care if I'm starving or not,
so I'll eat from the other cat's dish.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
My sister Whitey almost caught a bird in the backyard this morning. Luckily (for the bird!) my Mom was sweeping the patio and screamed just as it was happening. Feathers flew and us cats all took off to run back inside. Mom thought the little bird was a goner, but he sat for a few seconds on the deck stunned and then as Mom came closer he flew away! Whew! After all the excitement and yelling, we stayed in the house to catnap and dream about the one that got away. MOL!

LULLABY =^.^=

Sometimes you need real courage
Just to make it through the day.
Sometimes you feel so lonely
Like the world has gone away.
Sometimes you cry for nothing
You're sad and don't know why.
That's when you need your friend to sing
His sweet, purr lullaby.
You stroke his fur so softly
While he stares into your eyes.
He knows the secrets of your soul
He lifts your world's disguise.
He sees you for who you are
Like no one ever could.
You know there's bad inside you but
He only see the good.
Now there's peace within you
All the hurt has gone away.
Thanks to the magic spell he wove
Of love, pure love today.

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
My Mom took my sister Callie to the vet today for a weigh-in. The vet is adamant about Callie needing to lose some weight and guess what? Hooray! Callie lost 6 ounces in a month. Not a lot, but Mom is on the right track with getting Callie to exercise more. Callie likes her new cat toy called the “Cat Charmer” and Mom plays with her every evening before bedtime. And Callie loves it! She waits for Mom every night and even nudges Mom’s leg so she doesn’t forget! The vet was pleased with Callie’s weight loss, but told Mom to brush her teeth better, concentrating on the gum line. Aargh! It’s always something!

The sun is shining today, a purrfect day for catnapping outside. Whitey and Orangie spent an hour out in the backyard this morning, still exploring. They haven’t laid down to sleep in their cat beds in the backyard yet, but we have our paws crossed.

We hope you and your sweet Mom are staying warm sweetie. Give your Mom a hug for us and let her know we always have both of you in our prayers.

WAKE UP CALL =^.^=
~~~~~
There's a kitty sitting
Down at the end of the bed--
Watching, wond'ring--
Waiting to be fed.
Whisking, frisking,
She runs up our backs,
Returns to our feet
Making mock attacks.
Up again she creeps,
Peering at our faces.
She touches my nose,
Then away she races.
"Okay, little puss, I'll get up," I say,
As our furry alarm clock
Continues to play.

Hopefully all our furiends and their families are safe and will be able to recover quickly from the violent snowstorm that hit the northeast. Thank goodness it wasn’t quite as bad as predicted, but better to be safe than sorry.

Meanwhile, the weather here in California is like the flip side of the coin - dry and warm. It’s a shame we can’t trade some our sunshine for just a little bit of rain and snow. My sister Callie and I are catnapping in the backyard. Whitey and Orangie have started waiting by the back door to open in the morning. The two kitties roam the yard for a while, chase a few birds that are brave enough to land on the deck and then they both run back upstairs to catnap in their window beds. My Mom is glad to see Whitey and Orangie exploring and getting more exercise. Callie doesn’t appreciate them getting comfortable around HER house, but she’s getting more tolerant.:)

We hope you are feeling better dear furiend and getting lots of rest. Do you have a cat tree in your house so you can sit on it and get some sun? That's our favorite spot in the house when we can't go outside.

Give your sweet Mom a warm hug for us. We know her court day is coming up soon and we have her in our prayers every day! We love you dear furiend!

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

HOW MANY CATS? =^.^=
~~~~~
There once was a time when I had just one cat
But he needed a friend and so that was that.
But when the friend came, she invited her brother;
In less than a month, followed "Fifi," their mother.
Four cats now - that's the end I say
But I encountered a litter in my garage one day.
I found excellent homes for kits one, two and three,
But kit number four and Mom stayed on with me.
Kept indoors, all neutered - my family six strong;
I said - NO MORE - but not for long.
"June" was abandoned right near my job.
The day she was spayed, along came "Bob."
Well this all took place some years back
Now how many cats? I stopped keeping track.
I spend hours each day giving scratches and pats,
Some people have rugs; I have wall-to-wall cats!

-Dutch Carrie

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
We hope and pray all our furiends in the path of the northeastern storm are safe and warm. Watching the mews is unnerving and hard for us to imagine such extreme conditions. God bless all the people and animals out there without shelter.

Give your sweet Mom a warm hug for us. We have her and you dear furiend, in our thoughts and prayers.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
We’ve been listening to the mews reporting on the big storm that’s scheduled to hit the Northeast. It sounds very frightening. We have everyone in its path in our thoughts and prayers.

It’s almost the end of January and still no rain in sight for us. The mews said this could be the driest month of January ever for us. Not a good sign.

We hope you are all safe and warm where you live dear furiend. We are hoping and praying you are not in a lot of discomfort sweetie. We always have you and your dear Mom in our thoughts and prayers. Give your Mom a hug for us.

ODE TO MY CAT =^.^=
~~~~~
She's my alarm clock in the morning,
She's my friend and companion at night
And in all the in-between times
She's never out of my sight.
It's such a lovely feeling
To know she depends on me
For her food and warmth and shelter
So she gives me her love to see.
She plays with her toys; plays hide and seek
She's become the boss of the house!
Yet she has more fun with a walnut shell
Than she does with a catnip mouse!
The pleasure she gives me is a treasure
She greets me when I come in the door.
She seems to say "I've been lonesome so
Please don't go out anymore!"
She's my delight, my friend and my prankster
She pounces and jumps up real high
For a ball of yarn or a wiggly string
With a purr or a soft little cry.
She washes her face after eating.
Keeps her striped fur clean and sleek.
Jumps on my lap for approval and then
Curls herself up for her sleep.
So I wouldn't give up my kitty
For the world and all of its' gold.
'Cause if my kitty weren't with me
This world would be awfully cold!

-Doris A. Bartley

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
As soon as my Mom woke up this morning, we all ran to the computer room to see if CC was back up. Hooray! It was! My Mom had sent a few emails each day to the i5Publishing Site Support along with several screen shots of how awful the CC pages looked. We only heard back from them one time, acknowledging our emails, so we thought we were doomed. We were thrilled to see everything back to normal. Mom wrote a thank you email to the site support right away. It couldn’t hurt!

We are all doing fine, catnapping in the windows and the backyard since the sun is shining. Whitey and Orangie have been enjoying the backyard more and more each day. Whitey has tried to climb the tree a few times, but she’s learning there is no escape. The trees have a netted hoop around them midway up the tree, so she bounces back each time.

Ebony and Sugar Bear got heated “Kitty Sill” beds for Christmas, so Mom went to their house to install them. The two kitties loved them so much, Mom ordered a couple for our windows. Let’s see who fights over them. MOL!

Be sure to give your sweet Mom a warm hug for us. We always have both of you in our prayers.

We left a warm vote with soft purrs, hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need. We’re so happy to be back!

Kitty Creation Story =^.^=
~~~~~
During the first winter,
humans struggled to keep
warm. God decided to
create a helper. The helper
would be a space heater
that could be kept on the
lap or the end of the bed
for warmth. God covered
the little heater with soft
fur that relieved stress
when humans put their
hands on it. Two bright
eyes were added as
windows to God’s love, for
the heater created warmth
with a heart that loved
without condition. And, if
you listened closely, you
could hear his motor run.

Hi Neekah Boo! Whiskers here from Bora Bora!
Off in the distance, everyone had a stunning view of Mount Otemanu, one of two extinct volcanoes at the center of the island. Rising 2,400 feet above the lagoon, it was awesome to see the rain clouds at the peak of the mountain and clear blue skies surrounding it. Flower felt his adrenaline pumping as he snapped countless dramatic photos of the tombstone-shaped Mount Otemanu. Jacques assured his furiends they would be taking a tour of the lagoon later to see the dramatic peak of Mt Otemanu from every angle with the ever-changing blue hues of the Bora Bora lagoon in the foreground.

Whiskers held Talley in his arms as they marveled at the beauty of Bora Bora. Whiskers whispered to Talley, “I can now understand why this island is listed as the most romantic destinations in the world. I hope when Jacques comes to visit us at our home, he isn’t disappointed.” Talley shook her head, never taking her eyes off the breathtaking landscape and mewed, “I know he won’t be disappointed. Our home and the surrounding forest is a completely different type of beauty, but nonetheless spectacular. I think our furiend Jacques will enjoy our home just as much as we’ve enjoyed his.” Flower overheard the conversation and said excitedly, “I can hardly wait to introduce Uncle Jacques to all our shelter furiends and show him our workshop and the boats that we’re building. Maybe we can even take him to school with us for show-and-tell!” Whiskers laughed and ruffled the fur on his nephew’s head. “I know one thing for sure,” Whiskers said. “Jacques is going to love our home cooking, especially Talley’s apple pie.” Everyone laughed at Whiskers and his penchant for good food.

Disembarking at the Vaitape Wharf, Jacques led his guests on a stroll through the Vaitape village so they could get an idea of how the Bora Borans lived. The girls were excited to see plenty of small boutiques around Vaitape for last minute shopping and souvenirs. Neekah Boo told Pete she wanted to get a shell necklace to take back for her Mom. K. Pete took Neekah Boo’s paw, following Jacques to a cluster of shops surrounding a beautiful garden called Le Jardin Gauguin where a series of plaster sculptures depicting scenes from Gauguin’s painting were displayed.

Boarding their comfortable motor coach they were all about to embark on a tour around the islands and up into the mountains while Jacques educated them with a brief synopsis of Bora Bora’s history, culture, flora and fauna. Along the way they stopped to visit the old World War II gun sites, took a short walk to an ancient marae where petroglyphs were carved into the basaltic rock and finally at a fish farm where they saw tropical species being raised to restock the magnificent lagoon.

After their tour by land, Jacques told his furiends the best way to appreciate the uniqueness of Bora Bora is by boat excursion. He said, “From the lagoon we can admire the towering, rocky, green summit of Mt Otemanu. It transforms from wide and solid, to square and nubby, to slender and needle like, as we circle the island.

We also get to see the beautiful sandy motus that surround the main island. We’ll also have the opportunity to see a shark and ray feeding and even do some snorkeling in the deep water as these friendly creatures swim below and around us.”
Queen Kelsee shuddered and told Snickers, “That sounds awful frightening to swim with sharks in the water.” Neekah Boo and most of the girls nodded their heads in agreement.
Jacques laughed and said, “I know it sounds unusual! Why would anyone want to go swimming with sharks? I myself am not particularly brave. So if I can do it, you can too. Believe me, I would not be dangling my guests to the sharks if it were dangerous. They’re actually quite friendly, curious creatures, which you’ll see for yourselves as they swim around. Just be sure to have your cameras ready. Although the water is quite deep, it is crystal clear so there is amazing visibility. The tranquility of floating above these graceful sharks and rays is indeed memorable. I used to be terrified of sharks myself, but now I have a huge respect and appreciation for them. You’ll soon discover this for yourselves.”

Flower, Ralph, Inky, Bobby and Storm were eager for the opportunity of a lifetime. The girls were quietly thinking about it. Neekah Boo hung on to K. Pete’s arm tightly as she listened. K. Pete whispered to his sweetheart, “Don’t worry my love, I’ll be right there with you and if you don’t want to do it, we’ll happily watch everyone from the boat.” Talley smiled and said to Neekah Boo, “Let’s not decide until we get there. Maybe once we see everyone in the water, we won’t be able to resist.” Neekah Boo smiled letting out a sigh of relief. Queen Kelsee said, “That sounds like a plan to me. I’m not getting into any shark invested waters until I see with my own eyes how friendly they really are.”

Jacques laughed and said, “Fair enough. I think you’re all in for a wonderful surprise. We’ll end our tour with a visit to Matira Beach. This long stretch of white sand and calm turquoise water is one of the best beaches in the world. And that’s not just my opinion! Recently CNN awarded Matira Beach the number 1 spot out of the 50 best beaches in the world.
Queen Kelsee smiled and said out loud, “Now that’s more like it! I want to make sure I have a great suntan when I get back home.”

Flower held up his paw to ask Jacques a question. Jacques smiled and called on the polite little skunk. Flower smiled and asked, ‘Will we be visiting the Coral Gardens during our tour? I read in my brochure the lagoon’s warm, clear water and beautiful coral gardens make it a snorkeler’s paradise.” Jacque smiled, slapping his forehead and said, “Thank you for reminding me that Flower. You are such an intelligent traveler.” Flower was beaming with pride. Jacques said, “We’ll visit my favorite snorkeling spot known as the ‘aquarium.’ It has vivid blue water, beautiful coral gardens and a large number of tropical fish. I could float around in the sparkling water all day and it’s the best place to see the most colorful coral in Bora Bora.”

With everyone anxious to continue their tour, Whiskers held Talley in his arms savoring every last moment of their magical anniversary vacation. Whiskers gave his beautiful wife a soft kiss on her lovely cheek. Talley giggled and mewed, “What was that for my darling?” Whiskers replied, “I’m going to miss this paradise, but it wouldn’t be a paradise without you.” Talley leaned her head onto her husband’s shoulder as they listened to the sound of the village drums beating in the background.

Hi Neekah Boo! Whiskers here from our cruise ship!
Talley lay awake wrapped in Whisker’s arms, both kitties feeling the gentle movement of the Luz de Luna. Whiskers said to his beautiful wife, “Does it feel like we’re moving?” Talley nodded and said, “I felt the ship moving early this morning. I’m not sure where our next stop will be, but after looking at our map, I have a feeling it will be a visit to Bora Bora.” Whiskers smiled and said, “I read in our travel brochure the sound “b” doesn’t exist in Tahitian, so Bora Bora is actually Pora Pora, meaning “first born,” since it was the first island created after Raiatea.” Talley mewed, “I’m anxious to see the dramatic basalt peaks that soar over the gorgeous multicolored lagoon. Pete said some of the most perfect beaches we’ll ever see are there.”

Whiskers kissed Talley on her soft forehead and said, “I’m sorry your VFP team didn’t come away with a win last night. You girls played a great game. I had my eyes closed through most of the game.” Talley giggled and said, “My sisters and I played our best and that’s all that really matters. We had fun and we were delighted to see KCK win.” Whiskers smiled and said, “Flower and the kids always make everyone feel like winners. When we returned to the ship after the game, I got a kick out of Flower and Ralph high pawing and congratulating all of you.” Talley nodded and said, “I’m glad we remembered to bring back some of Winston’s pizza last night. I can tell the kids sometimes miss their occasional burgers, pizzas and sodas from back home.” Whiskers laughed and said, “I don’t know, I think the kids are showing a real interest in trying to grow some of the tropical fruits and vegetables they’ve been introduced to here on the islands. I’m hoping we’ll be allowed to take some breadfruit plants home with us.” Talley smiled and said, “Raven and Ms. Murphy were checking with the Royal Academy of Agriculture, like Pete said to do. We have to be sure to abide by the rules and laws of the islands.”

Whiskers got up to open the door to the balcony. He held his head up to feel the warm sun and gentle breeze that caressed his face. He turned to Talley and said, “It’s still very quiet on the ship. I hope K. Pete and Neekah Boo are sleeping in. We had a very active day yesterday. I’ve been amazed and grateful at how well both K. Pete and Neekah Boo are doing. I’m praying it continues when we get back home, because if it doesn’t, we’ll just have to come back for a longer stay. I can understand why so many artists and writers are attracted to the beauty of the islands. The enchanting climate, colorful and fragrant flowers, the sunsets and the Polynesian hospitality- all of it serves to inspire an artistic soul. It’s like being in another world.” Whiskers sighed and said, “But I do miss our home and our precious furiends.” Talley took her husband’s paw and mewed, “Don’t worry my love, we’ll return someday. There’s still a lot here for us to discover. But you’re absolutely right, home beckons us.” Whiskers pulled Talley into his arms and gave her a deep kiss. He was always home when he had his beloved Tallulah in his arms.

Whiskers and Talley leisurely got ready for their day. Talley wore the strand of black pearls Whiskers had bought for her around her slender neck. Whiskers was mesmerized by the sight of Talley, wearing a coral bathing suit with a sheer tanned pareo wrapped around her hips. Whiskers reached out to take her paw in his, pausing to place a soft kiss on her lovely cheek. “I love you so much Talley, “ he mewed. Talley smiled and gave him a look that Whiskers knew to mean she loved him too. He felt like he was walking on air.

Everyone was on the pool deck enjoying their morning meal. Just as Whiskers and Talley came out of the elevator, a heavy rain started to fall. Talley smiled and said, “I kind of like it when it rains. It never seems to last for too long and it’s very refreshing.” K. Pete and Neekah Boo overheard Talley. Pete pointed to sky and said, “The sky looks clear in the direction we’re headed. I think we’ll be fine.” Neekah Boo nodded and said to Pete, “I don’t mind the rain at all in the warm weather.” K. Pete smiled and gave his sweetheart a soft kiss on her lovely cheek.

After wishing everyone a good morning and stopping to give the kids warm hugs,
Whiskers took a peek at Winston’s plate and said, “That looks delicious my furiend. What did you order?” K. Winston smiled, swallowing the food in his mouth first and replied, “I’m having Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict. It’s wonderful! You should try it.” Queen Kelsee chimed in, “I ordered the Scrambled eggs with Herring Roe and Smoked Fish. I haven’t been disappointed yet!” Whiskers rubbed his tummy as he pulled out a chair for his lovely wife. Talley looked at her menu and said, “I think I want to try the something from the cold selections. The Poisson Cru sounds yummy. It says here it’s raw fish marinated in lime juice and coconut milk.” Whiskers smiled and said, “Let’s make that two. That will save room for some of the tasty breads and jams. I love the homemade banana jam. I hope Callie and Angel Maggie get the recipe for it.” Callie and Angel Maggie overheard their brother as they were just about to sit down to eat. Callie laughed and said, “Angel Maggie and I got several recipes for some interesting jams including banana. We’re going to try our paws at making pineapple, vanilla and sweet potato jams. I know Serena and Melba will love to try it too.”

Neekah Boo and K. Pete had their plates filled with fresh fruits, French baguettes and the two kitties in love were sharing an Polynesian Omelette. Neekah Boo took a small bite and mewed, “Try the omelette Whiskers. It has a Polynesian Salsa on it, but it isn’t too spicy at all.” Whiskers and Flower rubbed their tummies and licked their chops as they looked over the menu. Talley laughed, thinking to herself how cute it was that Flower liked to imitate his Uncle, especially at the table.

Breakfast was delicious and very satisfying. Everyone had nothing but accolades for the Luz de Luna expert chefs. The ship would be sailing for a while before their next stop, so everyone decided to do some more exploring on the luxury cruise ship, something none of them had tired of yet. Whiskers and Talley decide to have a couple’s massage and asked K. Pete and Neekah Boo to join them. Neekah Boo’s eyes lit up when she heard ‘massage.’ They decide to meet up on the promenade deck in an hour.

Whiskers and Talley took a slow stroll around the ship, enjoying the panoramic views, being together and so very much in love.

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
You can count on us dear furiend. We have your Mom in our prayers every day, but we'll say extra prayers as her court date gets closer. We have to think pawsitive! We're so sorry your little back and right leg keeps swelling up. We at least hope the meds and laser treatments make you more comfortable sweetie. I'm so glad you are enjoying our vacation in Tahiti. I know K. Pete is having a wonderful with you there. You look just like a polynesian princess! We have you and your dear Mom in our thoughts and prayers.

It was another sunny, but chilly morning on our stroller walk. We saw our furiend, the yappy dog with his jogger. He barked at us and we hissed back. The little guy knows us know now and keeps his distance.

Yesterday afternoon, Whitey and Orangie finally ventured out through the back cat door to explore the backyard. This was a first and Mom was right there. The two kitties sniffed around the deck and the plants very cautiously, but neither of them tried to jump onto the fence. We have a cat fence for that reason, but they didn’t even seem interested. After a few minutes, Whitey turned around and headed back inside with Orangie right behind her. My Mom is hoping they’ll try again today and hopefully someday they’ll want to lay down in one of the cat beds on the deck and get some sun. I didn’t mind the company, but Callie ran back inside the house as soon as she saw them come out the cat door. MOL! Callie does not like change in her surroundings and routine!

My Mom had errands to run today, so we’re all catnapping in our beds by the windows.

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

Two Little Kittens =^.^=
~~~~~
Two little kittens, one stormy night,
Begun to quarrel, and then to fight;
One had a mouse, the other had none,
And that's the way the quarrel begun.

"I'll have that mouse," said the biggest cat;
"You'll have that mouse? We'll see about that!"
"I will have that mouse," said the eldest son;
"You shan't have the mouse," said the little one.

I told you before 'twas a stormy night;
When these two little kittens began to fight;
The old woman seized her sweeping broom,
And swept the kittens right out of the room.

The ground was covered with frost and snow,
And the two little kittens had no where to go;
So they laid them down on the mat at the door,
While the old woman finished sweeping the floor.

Then they crept in, as quiet as mice,
All wet with snow, and cold as ice,
For they found it was better, that stormy night,
To lie down and sleep than to quarrel and fight.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
Callie and I were outside in our backyard bird watching this morning. Those crazy little birds were getting awfully brave, landing on the deck and chirping at us. My Mom didn’t like how close the birds were getting to us, especially when she saw us swishing our tails and licking our chops at them. That darned Mom made us come inside. (Sigh!) Oh well...I needed a nap anyway.

The sun is out today, but it was a chilly 38 degrees this morning. (I know, chilly for us!) We’re still hoping for rain but there is none in sight.

We hope you and your Mom are staying warm and hopefully you'll be getting your laser treatments soon. We have you both in our prayers every day without fail. We love you sweet furiend!

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

Cats and Dogs: A Comparison =^.^=
~~~~~
1. Cats purr. Dogs drool.
2. Cats rub your leg when they want affection, not when they're horny.
3. Cats use a litter box. Dogs use your leg.
4. Cats will wait until you've read your morning paper before tearing it to shreds.
5. Cats look cute sleeping on the T.V. Dogs just crash right in front of the screen.
6. Fewer cat owners suffer from 'Flappy Tail' lacerations than dog owners.
7. No one has ever had to "Beware of the Cat".
8. Cats bury their crap. Dogs dig up others'.
9. Cats have better things to do than stick their nose in your crotch.
10. Why do you think they call it, "Dog Breath?"
11. Garfield. Odie. Enough said.

Hi Neekah Boo! Whiskers here from Raiatea!
Lulled to sleep by the gently rocking of the ship, Whiskers and Talley woke up refreshed and energized for another fun filled day. Whiskers held Talley in his arms wishing their vacation would never end. Talley seemed to be able to read her husband’s mind when she said, “I’ve had a glorious time too visiting French Polynesia, but I miss our home and our shelter furiends. I know they are all doing just fine because Pete checks in with them everyday, but I miss the everyday banter and excitement with all our furiends.” Whiskers nodded and said, “You read my mind sweetheart. I can’t wait to get back and see how Edward and the Excalibur feral Colony are doing. I miss Phillip and the wolves too. According to Oliver, Phillip and his pack have been making frequent visits to the shelter. I’m anxious for Neekah Boo to meet them. Won’t she be surprised?!” Talley nodded happily and mewed, “We should have a special dinner party to officially announce Pete and Neekah Boo as boyfriend and girlfriend.” Whiskers gave his beautiful Talley a deep kiss and said, “That’s a wonderful idea my love. I know all our furiends will be thrilled for K. Pete, since most of them already know Neekah Boo and how very much K. Pete cares for her.”

Talley got out of bed to open the sliding door to their balcony. She smiled when she heard the sounds of laughter coming from below. Whiskers said, “I guess everyone is up. We better get ready so we don’t miss out on any of the fun.” Talley nodded, holding out her paw to Whiskers, leading him to the shower. Afterwards, as Whiskers was running a brush through Talley’s soft fur, he said, “Jacques said today we’ll have a leisurely day touring the island by motor coach, stopping to do some snorkeling in the steel blue waters and picnicking on one of the several motus in the lagoon, since there are no beaches on Raiatea. I’m glad because we don’t want to tire out Neekah Boo and K. Pete. Maybe we can suggest to them to have a couple’s massage on the ship. I’m sure that would do wonders for Neekah Boo.” Talley nodded and said, “Callie and Angel Maggie want to visit the Vanilla Plantations and the Botanical Gardens on the island. I think the only walking we might want to try, is on Tapioi Hill. Jacques spoke of a spectacular view on the hilltop where we can see Taha’a and Bora Bora and he claims it’s one of the easiest and most satisfying climbs in French Polynesia.” Whiskers nodded and said, “We’ll ask K. Pete and Neekah Boo how they’re feeling today. I’m sure we’ll have plenty to do.”

The breakfast buffet on the Luz de Luna was once again beyond compare. As soon as Whiskers and Talley stepped off the elevator onto the pool deck, Whisker’s nose could detect the smell of delicious pork sausage and bacon in the air. Talley smiled, patted her husband’s tummy and said, “Let’s not eat too much this morning. We have a day of sightseeing ahead of us sweetheart.” Whiskers nodded, knowing his darling wife was right. But the food smelled heavenly.

K. Pete and Neekah Boo came from the buffet tables with scrambled eggs and island-style potatoes. The kids were enjoying something the chefs called Tonga Toast - banana-stuffed sourdough bread, battered, deep-fried and dusted with cinnamon sugar. Whiskers pulled out a chair for his lovely wife next to K. Pete and Neekah Boo, stopping to say good morning to everyone. Flower jumped out of seat to hug his Uncle Whiskers and said, “Ua here vau ia oe!” Flower giggled and said, “Do you know what I said to you Whiskers? I said ‘I love you’ in Tahitian! Jacques taught me that!” Whiskers laughed and said, “Right back at you little guy.”

After giving the kids warm hugs, Whiskers sat down asking K. Pete and Neekah Boo how they were feeling this morning. The two kitties in love smiled and said they felt wonderful. K. Pete said, “We just finished a Skype call to Oliver and Theodore. They sent their love to everyone and told us not to worry about them. The weather was chilly, but everything is under control.”

Talley came back from the buffet with plates for her and Whiskers filled with scrambled eggs and fresh fruit. Whiskers smiled, knowing Talley was helping him watch his waistline. Neekah Boo knowingly smiled and mewed, “I can’t believe how much food I’ve eaten on our trip. That just isn’t like me at all, but I know my Mom will be happy to hear that.” Whiskers laughed and said, “Neekah Boo, you are just like my Talley, always watching your slender figures.” Winston overheard the conversation and added, “The only thing I’m doing is watching my figure grow - and loving every minute of it. We’re on vacation my furiends! Now is not the time to worry about calories.” Everyone nodded their heads in agreement as they ate like royalty.

After a scrumptious meal, Jacques encouraged everyone to first enjoy some snorkeling from the ship in the calm, secluded lagoon that was home to a wide variety of reef fish and plant life. The families didn’t have to be told twice when they heard the lagoon attracted large schools of eels, perches, triggerfish, red snappers, silver jacks, tunas, red runners, and reef sharks. Flower, Ralph, Inky, Bobby, Storm and the girls couldn’t get to their snorkeling equipment fast enough! Queen Kelsee and Snickers were anxious to get in the water too, running back to their rooms to get their underwater cameras.

The tour of Raiatea would consist of a motor tour and speed boat tours to explore the wonders of the island and lagoons. Jacques promised they would enjoy snorkeling moments around a motu facing the bay of Haamene for an unforgettable encounter with the lagoon rays. Then they would delight in a picnic lunch to include barbeque grilled fish, raw fish, local vegetables & local fruits.

Whiskers kissed Talley’s paw as they walked back to their room to gather their day bags. The two kitties knew their magical trip was coming to an end soon, and they planned on enjoying every second of it together.

Hi Sweet Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
The sun is shining today, so all us cats are sunbathing in the windows. Mom is out working in the yard where we can watch her and supervise. Mom filled up a big trash can with crunchy leaves. Drat! We were hoping she’d leave a pile for us to jump into.

We always have you and your precious Mom in our prayers dear furiend. We sure are having a wonderful time with you and K. Pete in Tahiti. You look just like a real Polynesian Princess! I'll post my blog for today on our visit to the island called Raiatea.

We hope you’re having a warm, lazy day too.

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

My Cat Friends =^.^=
~~~~~
My home is where my feet touch
My bed is what's under me when I'm sleepy
My food is anything that tastes good.
My friends are whom I choose.

The night is my safety, the day is my warmth.
I'm proud but not vain. Simple things delight me.

I love to be loved, but love when I choose.
I adapt very quickly, but prefer my routine.
I am curious to a fault.
I am beautiful, and I'm clean, and I know it.

My soft voice can comfort, my anger is clear.
I practice my agility so none can compare.
I am what I am, and I would be no other,
I am cat! And that's that!

Hi Neekah Boo! Whiskers here from Tahiti!
Whiskers and Talley were laying awake, reminiscing about the wonderful dinner and party afterwards they experienced on the motu belonging to Jacques and his Dad. They had the whole tiny island to themselves, making it a rare and unforgettable adventure. Whiskers kissed Talley good morning and said, “We certainly are fortunate to have Jacques as our personal tour guide. Thanks to him, our vacation in French Polynesia has been truly unique.” Talley nodded, smiled and said, “I’m just glad to see how well my brother Pete and Neekah Boo seem to be doing in the warm weather. I’m hoping when we return home, the cold weather doesn’t cause any setbacks for them.” Whiskers shook his head and said, “I don’t think it will. We’ll just keep a close eye on both of them. Besides, being back home is always the best medicine for anything that ails you. I wish That Neekah Boo lived closer to us, but we’ll just have to make a point of visiting her more often and having her spend more time with us at our home.”

Whiskers ears perked up when he heard the kid’s laughter coming from outside. He laughed and said, “It sounds like Flower and the kids are frolicking in the water already. Let’s get up and have our coffee on the balcony.” Talley kissed her husband and mewed, “Jacques said the Luz de Luna launch would be taking us back to the ship this morning. I do believe he said our next stop would be to Raiatea, the “sacred isle” and secret garden of ancient myths and hidden temples.” The two kitties in love leisurely prepared for another wonderful day in paradise.

While they sipped their coffee and enjoyed fresh baguettes with butter, Whiskers said to Talley, “I’m going to miss our overwater cottage. Watching the marine life under our bungalow at night was great entertainment.” Talley mewed, “This has been an enchanting vacation. I’m glad we all were able to experience it together. I know Queen Kelsse, Snickers and their family are having a wonderful time. Queen Kelsee told me this is exactly what she needed after her reign as Queen.”

From their balcony, Whiskers and Talley spied K. Pete sitting with Neekah Boo, Raven and Ms. Murphy. Whiskers waved and said to Talley, “K. Pete looks so happy when he’s with Neekah Boo. Those two were meant to be together.” Talley smiled and nodded as she sipped her coffee. “My brother deserves all the happiness in the world and I think he’s found it with Neekah Boo. She’s a lovely kitty.”

The sound of an outboard motor off in the distance caught their attention. Whiskers said, “That looks like our launch. We better gather our things and get ready for our ride back to the ship.” Talley smiled and said, “Good thing we packed light. It should just take us a few minutes and then we can go see if anyone needs our help.” Whiskers took Talley in his arms and gave her a deep kiss. “I had a magical time with you my little Tahitian princess,” Whiskers mewed to his beloved wife. Talley smiled and said, “It’s not over yet sweetheart.”

Jacques and some of the crew met everyone at the dock. K. Pete, Whiskers and Mitch brought their families baggage ready to board the launch. Jacques ran up the walkway to the overwater cottages to assist Queen Kelsee and her family. Flower and Ralph assisted the girls onto the boat, keeping a careful head count so as not to forget anyone.

Once everyone was onboard, it was on to the Luz de Luna. Jacques told his guests there was a brunch buffet being set up on the ship for them to enjoy until their next destination to Raiatea. Jacques told them one thing that sets Raiatea apart from all of the other islands in French Polynesia is that there are no real sandy beaches. He said they would tour the island by motor coach and motorboat. K. Pete was relieved to hear this so his sweetheart Neekah Boo wouldn’t over exert herself.

Talley told Whiskers she wanted to try to see the scared white flower on Raiatea that exists nowhere else on earth and resists transplantation. Flower chimed in, “I read about that flower. It’s called the “Taire apetahi”. Jacques nodded his head and said, ‘You’re a very smart little skunk. Legend has it the fragile one-sided blossom represents the five fingers of a beautiful Polynesian girl who fell in love with the handsome son of a high chief but was unable to marry him because of her lowly birth. The petals on the flower pop open forcefully enough at dawn to make a sound, and local residents sometimes spend the night on the mountain where they grow to be near there to hear the pop. The flowers are protected though, so you can’t pick them, but we can get some good photos of them.”

In no time at all, they were back to the Luz de Luna. Everyone decided to go back to their rooms, unpack and meet out by the buffet afterwards. The ship’s crew took control of everyone’s bags so their guests could relax. Coming back to their suite, Whiskers opened their door, stopping to scoop Talley up in his arms, carrying her through the threshold. Talley delighted Whiskers with a warm kiss.

Hi Pretty Neekah Boo, Angel Fatty and Mom!
We missed all our dear furiends this weekend. Sunday was playoff football time around the house with lots of Dad’s friends making too much noise. Thank goodness football season is almost over. A cat can’t get a decent nap around here!

We are all very sad to hear of our newest Angels -Angel Sir Winston (200211), Angel Felix (c/o Q. Duchess 190247) and Angel Priscilla (59900). Our heartfelt condolences go out to their precious families.

It’s housecleaning day around here, so us kitties are all laying low. Hopefully when I wake up from my catnap, Mom will help me get caught up on answering my blogs. Wishing you a quiet and relaxing Meowday!

Give your sweet Mom a warm hug for us. We always have you and your Mom in our thoughts and prayers.

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

P.S. I noticed K. Pete shared my blog with us in Tahiti. The reason I didn't share it with you was because it seemed so boring next to K. Pete's story. He writes so much better than I do, but I do try! I'll start sharing my blogs with you until you tell me to stop! Don't worry, you won't hurt my feelings. MOL! We love you sweetie!

My Sweet Neekah Boo, This is Whiskers description
of our adventures on our trip for today, I will add our commentary tonight, and post it here!
*****
Whiskers and Talley opened their eyes
this morning in the charming cottage on Huahine, the Garden Island. Whiskers kissed Talley and said, “I read in our travel brochure that Huahine is the island equivalent to the Garden of Eden.” Talley nodded and said, “I feel as if we’re in an immense jungle with the lush vegetation and bright blooms all around us. It’s breathtaking.”

Whiskers noticed the light blinking on his phone and picked it up to see who might have left him a message. A sad look came over Whiskers face. Talley said very seriously, “What’s wrong my love?” Whiskers put his arms around Talley and said, “I had a message from Mischief and Queen Duchess. Their brother Felix crossed over the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. He only became ill a few days ago, but his illness overtook the little guy quickly. I had asked Mischief to keep me posted on Felix’s condition. We were praying for a miracle. I guess God decided it was time for Felix to go home to Heaven.” Whiskers and Talley cried together and said a prayer for their dear furiend and his very sad family.

As Whiskers and Talley sipped a cup of coffee, the two kitties were mesmerized by the sights in their overwater bungalow with the crystal clear turquoise water and hundreds and hundreds of tropical fish swimming right underneath them. It was an ideal retreat with great snorkeling off their very own private deck. Whiskers smiled when he heard the happy laughter of Flower and the kids in the background. Whiskers and Talley took their coffee with them on onto the walkway surrounding their cottage and waved hello to the kids who were snorkeling in the beautiful waters. Whiskers laughed when he saw Mitch and Pearl in the water with the kids.

K. Pete was sitting with Neekah Boo, Raven and Ms. Murphy at the girl’s cottage, enjoying the sights of the spectacular lagoon. Whiskers and Talley waved to their family. Two bungalows down, Queen Kelsee and Snickers could be seen just getting into the water from right outside their walkway. Whiskers could understand why the locals on Huahine prided themselves on preserving what they genuinely believed to be the most picturesque island on Tahiti. The views left Talley and Whiskers spellbound.

After an enjoyable morning in their overwater bungalows, everyone readied for a tour of the island. Jacques had sent a message to K. Pete to gather everyone on the wharf for the Island Eco Tour. They would start by having breakfast on the waterfront. Whiskers helped Talley gather their day bags. He could feel the excitement and intense electricity in the air as they walked to shore.

After a delicious breakfast of croissants, French crepes and pain au chocolat on the waterfront, the tour was about to begin. Once everyone was aboard the waiting motorcoach, they departed Maroe Village on the small island of Huahine Iti, crossing the bridge to Huahine Nui, or 'big island'. Here they drove past lush green valleys and turquoise lagoon through the capital town of Fare, where Captain James Cook sojourned on his visits to the island.

K. Pete had his arm around Neekah Boo, reading to her from the travel brochure as they traveled. K. Pete spoke loud enough for everyone to hear about the legend of Huahine. “The natural abundance of Huahine blends seamlessly with a wealth of ancient history and mythical intrigue. Once the home of Tahitian royalty, Huahine is considered the cradle of Polynesian culture. The island maintains the largest concentration of ancient marae (temples) in French Polynesia, some of which are believed to date back to the original ancestors of the Tahitians—the Lapita people—around 700 AD.” Jacques nodded and assured everyone they would visit a temple during the tour where everyone could relax and offer prayers for their furiends.

Jacques first stop was at the Maeva village, considered to be one of French Polynesia's most important archaeological areas and home to the largest pre-historic habitation site in Polynesia. During their short walk through the village, they explored the archaeological sites along the lake shore and the Fare Pote'e Museum. Here they learned about Polynesian origins and migrations, traditional society, religion, botany, European explorers and got a first hand look at various traditional tools, handicrafts and artifacts.

They continued on to Mata'ire'a hill, just above the Village of Maeva and home to more than 200 stone structures, including marae, agricultural terraces, house foundations, fortification walls and burial platforms.

What really set this tour apart from the usual photo-op affairs was the emphasis on archaeology and natural history. Flower, Ralph, Rosie and the kittens were taking lots of notes, planning to write and illustrate book reports for school when they got back home.
Neekah Boo told Pete she would like to create some paintings of their spectacular excursion when they returned home. K. Pete made a mental note to get his sweetheart some oil paints and canvas for her to work with.

Before their return journey to port, Jacques took his guests through the village of Faie where they all stopped to feed the island's giant blue-eyed eels that swam in the stream, before enjoying a photo-stop at the Belvedere Lookout, for panoramic views of Huahine Iti and beautiful Maroe Bay.

Angel Lucy and Angel Sylvie reminded everyone there was hockey this evening. The families and furiends agreed they’d like to relax in their overwater cottages for awhile, enjoying the sights of the coral gardens, fish, sharks, turtles, etc.. right from their own rooms.

Whiskers and Talley sat on their balcony, wrapped in each other’s arms, listening to the melodic rhythm of the waters below them. Whiskers thought this has to be what Heaven is like.


Sending you soft kisses and warm hugs my precious Talley.

X. “Yet, love, mere love, is beautiful indeed...”
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

“Yet, love, mere love, is beautiful indeed
And worthy of acceptation. Fire is bright,
Let temple burn, or flax; an equal light
Leaps in the flame from cedar-plank or weed:
And love is fire. And when I say at need
I love thee . . . mark! . . . I love thee—in thy sight
I stand transfigured, glorified aright,
With conscience of the new rays that proceed
Out of my face toward thine. There’s nothing low
In love, when love the lowest: meanest creatures
Who love God, God accepts while loving so.
And what I feel, across the inferior features
Of what I am, doth flash itself, and show
How that great work of Love enhances Nature’s.”
