Musings #113 Peaceful

“Indeed, there is nothing on this earth more peaceful

than a sleeping, purring cat.”
― Jonathon Scott Payne

Panky: Dere’s lots happened since our last post.

My brofur Troyer celebrated his third birfday. Did we do anyfing special for his day?

DaMa tried to give him new treats but all he wanted to do was have her sit next to him while he nap the whole day.

He’s still a brat.

I’m waiting for the day when he don’t jump on me just because he wants to pounce n play when I want to enjoy my nap.

DaMa say he’s an Angel when he’s sleeping

and we must bery patient with him to grow out of the kitten stage of his life.

*sheesh* He’s three years old! When is that gonna be?

Panky: He may look peaceful in all dese pictures here but he’s still a brat!

Musings #109 The Cat

“The cat . . . is for the man who appreciates beauty

as the one living force in a blind and purposeless universe.”

― H.P. Lovecraft

Panky: Thursday is National Cat Day.

Around here, everyday is Cat Day. Even Troyer agrees wif me.

Troyer: Iz can haf more noms today because of dis national cat day?

Me wondering what makes today so special?

Panky: Here’s wut Iz nose about dis special day:

“National Cat Day was founded by animal welfare advocate Colleen Paige. It is a celebration that takes place on October 29, every year in the United States. The National Cat Day website states that the holiday was first celebrated in 2005, “to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of cats that need to be rescued each year and also to encourage cat lovers to celebrate the cat(s) in their life for the unconditional love and companionship they bestow upon us.” The day is supported by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, a nonprofit organization which also works to encourage pet adoption.”

Me and brofur totally agrees on adopting your mew fur buddy.

Dat’s how we bof came to live here- Me was rescued off of da streets,

and Troyer was adopted as mai minion, er, companion.

Troyer: WaaaitAMinute! Me purrs bery loudly frum all the chin scritching Meowmmy gibs me.

Musings #104 Cozier

“Nothing makes a house cozier than cats.”

~ Gladys Taber

Panky: Iz nose me and brofur Troyer make dis house cozier wif our panfur ways.

When Iz wuz a baby panfur, Iz remember being shoved into a pillowcase wif one of mai littermate and left sumwheres. Sum kind humans found us as we were squirming to get out of dis ting. Iz wuz skeered and ran away to hide. Mai littermate was given over to the human now known as DaMa. She halped him find a nice family to live wif. A few days laterz, a little human girl who wasn’t so skeery to me halped brings me over to DaMa.  DaMa had a spotty woofie who wasn’t in best health. She slept alot. She could smells me but wasn’t interested to meet me.  Purrty soon, she took her journey for da Rainbow Bridge.

DaMa didn’t nose wut to do wif me- if Iz live here or find a nice family fur me. Me glad she decided this was to be my home.  DaMa learned many panfur tings since da last time she had panfurs wuz in da late 80’s.

One day, she dot Iz needed a playmate as Iz wuz unhappy dat she wasn’t at mai beck an call all da time and let herz no dat.  So she searched fur a baby panfur dat wood be a gud match fur me at a local rescue organization. Are you kidding? Da first ting Troyer did when I sniffs him in da carrier was to hiss at me.  Sheesh! He not so much a brat meNow that he’s growed up sums.  We bof nose how luckys we are to have a mice human Staff.

Da inspiration of writing all dis because it is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month. While we did not come frum a shelter, dere are many kittehs in need of gud homes either in shelters or at da local rescue organizations.

Iz wood like to menshun da Itsie Bitsie Rescues peeps as dey are a little, er, ALOT full wif 147 kittens in foster cares now! Dat is a bery high numbers of kittehs as they normally hafs 100 or so.    Dey seeking donations of any kind- monies, handmade toys or blankies. If you wood like to halps dem , dey bery appreciative of halps of any kind: Dey on Facebook as Itsie Bitsie Rescue or you may send items to Itsie Bitsie Rescue 7668 Oak Grove Ave Citrus Heights CA 95610.
