Tales on Friday

(I is Jake says he is still tryin to get the mom to get him his own blog, we aren't sure if its goin to happen. We are goin to skip Frootbat Friday in honor of it being Halloween and to finish our tales.)

Yoo may remember dat when TT went to da bridge this year, the mom thought she kept seeing her. That continued to happen a lot actually. A shadow of a cat sitting in TT's favorite fresh air seats, or a feeling dat TT was sleepin above her head on her favorite pillows. Once even the mom thought she was still there, on da head board lookin out (just like her last video showed). This magik continued until just recently, when The Introoder came to lives wif us. The mom says, although it was great to has TT here wif here, in da after life, it is better to has TT go and play and wait fer her, when it is the mom's time to go.




The mom is sentimental and so for like a month after Fatty was helped to da bridge, she left her food bowls and the blanket on the stairs outside our door. It tugged at the mom's heart to has to admit that Fatty was gone too. So she gathered the bowls up and threw dem out (acuz if Fatty did has da aids then it was best to not infect other kittys), yet Fatty's bloo blanket dat Tiki sent last Christmas was on da stairs.

Now, the big male bean, had asked the mom if she had seen a cat in da basement. It wudn't has been odd acuz yoo know the mom and the neighbor beans has a soft spot fer da homeless kittys. The mom wud go down to the basement to do wash but not see any fing. So finally a few weeks ago the mom picked up Fattys blanket from da stairs and washed it. She has left it on top of the dryer, "just cuz".

Well since then, she has been seein dark shadows in da basement. She asked da neighbor if they had let a cat in and they hasn't but perhaps sum bean visitin did ya never know. Well it freaked the mom out when she saw movement to where Fatty used to sleep. She is not sure still if Fatty is still around or not. But if the movement is there the next time, she is goin to tell Fatty to go play wif the other kittys at da bridge. She hopes dat cures the basement of the shadows.

Tales on Thursday

Sometimes beans fink they see fings, or do they know? Us furrys, we see what they can't and we feel what they block out .... Here is a tale we has heard The Mom say, we will let yoo decide if yoo believe or not!

A long time ago when Shadow's boy was a young bean, they had a black cat named Ninja. Ninja loved being an indoor / outdoor kitty. The mom was always afraid for him to be that way but Ninja wudn't stop askin to go out. One dark night in October, she had a knock at da door. A bean neighbor who knew Ninja, said he had bad news.

Mom followed the bean neighbor blindly, to see her kitty Ninja, laying just along the driveway. Sum bean had hit him and left him there. The mom stood there blocking the way as cars tried to get by. She was tearful and wanted to at least give him a proper burial as a whole kitty, not a ::whispers:: mashed one.

They buried Ninja, in the back yard of the apartments she lived in. A few days after she buried Ninja, the neighbor bean said she saw Ninja just outside her window. The mom shook her head and said not possible. The neighbor bean swore it was him though! A year later The mom and beans moved from there.

In her new house, she swore she kept seeing a black cat. She did not own a black cat then. Where ever she walked, just as if Ninja was still there, the shadow walked with her. Yoo see Ninja, always kept a close eye on The Mom. Finally after many months of this shadow, the mom broke.

She turned towards the shadow cat and said "I'm okay Ninja, yoo don't have to watch over me now. Go be with your brother Zeppy (he died of lukemia) and be happy." Tears filled the mom's eyes as she said this, but she knew it was for the best. The shadow cat, walked through the mom's legs and rubbed up against them (so she felt like) and disappeared.

From that point forward, she never saw his shadow lurking in that house or any other place there after.

So kittys, do yoo believe? Do yoo has a story to tell ? If yoo do post it to yer blog or email us yer story. If we get enough stories we can host them on our blog to tell a tale on Thursday.

Tattle Tale Tabby Tuesday

Hai, I is hiding under my girl bean bed. I am not too happy lately.

First, that woofie Jake, has taken to jumpin on my bean girls bed and sleeping WITH MY bean girl! Ya know it took me a long while to get my furs all over dat bed and to make it smell just like me. No I must insist that the mom clean it all up, even all the toys dat the bean girl leaves on there!

Second, The Introoder! OMC, I am not used to him and it is hard for me to welcome him into MY house!! He comes and just sits on my bean girls floor and meows at me or just looks at me. He doesn't come near me but still dat is still too close fer me!

Then today, while I was eatting, he came in and proceeded to eat his stinky goodness, which the mom lady so unthoughfully put next to our primo kibbles!

Thirdly, Shadow has come to like this Introoder. I do not know if this is good or not. I don't want my brothfur to like someone else like he likes me.

And OH yeah, the mom, downloaded a new program called paint so dat she can learn to do more graphics fer blogs and badges and stuff. She's had it fer a week and still can't get the hang of it! HA!!

Mancat Monday w The Introoder


Hai! I'm still new at this but Shadow said give it another try so I will! I just wanted to tell yoo a few new things that has happened since I came here.
  • I has discovered that they has the best catnip! Shadow showed me how to eat it off a plate and that is the bestest way EVER!
  • When I first came here, my limp was very bad. But now the mom lady person says it doesn't look like it bothers me as much.
  • I am running! I run from room to room and get all excited! I didn't run much when I first got here.
  • I am learning to play again! The mom lady person has watched me run around and bat things. She also saw me scratch at something up in the air. This is new for me here at this house.
I really love it here (well except for that mutt!). I still haven't told the mom lady person my name yet. She calls me different names to see if I answer but truthfully, I won't come to a name that isn't mine. But yoo know, I do come when that big male guy calls me "Thump".

Tattle Tale Tabby Tuesday


I's got the real poop, er scoop on how the mom gotted The Introoder. It really isn't what yoo kittys wud fink either! *sigh*

So the mom, big male bean and the alien blurpy bean went with Jake to the store. He was out of his special dog food (he can't eat fatty foods acuz it makes him has messy poops). The mom always goes down the kitty section, force of habit acuz TT was always picky bout her stinky goodness.

She gotted down the section when there was some cages on da floor. She peaked inside one and it had kittens in it. She oooo'd and ahhhh'd at dem and then looked at da other cage next to dem. There was The Introoder, his fat body squished to da back of the PTU.

The mom leaned down and wanted a closer look. Do yoo know dat he came to the front of the PTU and meowed at her? Well the lady bean dat was runnin the 'doption fing, asked the mom if she could help her. The mom "says" she told the lady she was lookin at The Introoder.

So next fing yoo know the bean lady hadid him out of the PTU in her arms, which is when the mom said "Oh my goodness, he sure is small." Da lady bean said "No, he really isn't" and shoved him in the mom's arms. The mom said she started to melt then.

Welp, the lady bean took the mom to a quiet room so dat the mom could sit wif The Introoder. He sat on da bench next to da mom and purred. He then gaves her love bites (which he still does). He reached up wif his paw and placed it on the mom's hand.

Now the mom was thinking that she shouldn't do this. That she wanted another Aby girl like TT. But acuz the mom doesn't work right now and her savings dat she had fer her own fun was used fer the bean kids and fer food fer all of us and whatever bills happens when yoo is a bean, she knew dat she couldn't afford an Aby kitty right now. So anyway, she was finkin bout that when the Introoder putted his paw on the moms hand.

Her eyes started to water and she knew dat TT was tellin her dat it was okay. That the Introoder was the best kitty fer her right now! So wifout a second thought, she told the lady bean she wanted to bring him home. That his "special needs" doesn't bother her that he is fine no matter what.

And dat my kitty friends is how The Introoder gotted to be here.

He really isn't all dat bad. It took me awhile to get used to TT as well.

But if by chance yoo know of anyone dat wud love a special needs kitty click HERE. This kittys name is Daisy. Daisy is special acuz she has 3 legs. The mom was hoping dat the lady behind her who was waitin to use da room, wud've taken Daisy. From what the mom saw, Daisy loves to HUG alot!! And of course Daisy looks like me!!

Mancat Monday with TWO Mancats!

Hai ! Today I am going to let my new brothfur tell his story about where he came from and what's happened to him. Whiles he does dat, I's goin to nap .....

Oh hi! I am new to blogging but Molly and Shadow say it's fun so I will give it a try. I don't know how much I will blog but it's worth a try.

Photobucket


The mom lady person adopted me from a place called N.O.A.H - Nemasket Orphaned Animal Haven,Inc. Before N.O.A.H had's me I lived in Leitchfield, Kentucky with the Grayson County Humane Society. Grayson saved my life! (They still has my page up HERE!) I don't care to remember much but this is what they say had happened.

A very nice couple found me living in a feral colony and they noticed how friendly I was. When they brought me to the shelter, I was in pretty rough shape with matted fur, diarrhea, an upper respiratory infection, plus I had some nasty, fat Kentucky ticks stuck on me (I was tested for Lyme Disease, but I'm fine).

Everyone thought I was a girl, but I kept my good humor about that while I was being treated for all this stuff. They also thought I was declawed, but there was actually something wrong with my front feet. After a trip to the vet who took x-rays, it appeared I had two broken ankles that hadn't healed properly, thus the funny walk I had.

Another appointment with an orthopedic vet (did I say that correctly?) who peeked at my x-rays showed I actually had severe arthritis. I'm now on a daily dose of Metacam as part of an anti-inflammatory/pain management plan. But, you know what? I really don't like to think of myself as "special needs." I'm just a special guy, period. People come into the shelter and seek me out to give me "brushes and loves" because I'm such a lover boy.

I'm getting to be kind of famous too because I had my own "thread" on Petfinder (I don't know what that is, but I like the sound of thread!). Now how many kitties can say that, huh?

OK -- here's the bottom line -- my condition isn't curable, so I'll probably always be like this. I don't know what the future holds for me, but I do know that I need a loving home and people that will love me for what I am: a VERY loving cat with a SLIGHT disability. Could that special home be yours? Please watch my video at the link listed above and then tell me you're able to resist my Nowhere Man charms. Purr along with me (OK - humming is fine too): "Nowhere Man -- please listen. You don't know what you're missing. Nowhere Man, the world is at your command." Wouldn't you like me to be part of YOUR world? Purrrrrty please?



Photobucket

They said I said this so it must be true, but really now that I am in my own FUR EVER home, I don't care to recall all of that much! The mom lady person is great to sleep next to and I always sleep wif her at night.

I like to talk a lot. Sometimes when the big man guy gets up from bed, I follow him and wait patiently for him where ever he goes. Now his woofie dog I do not like so much. I have taken to following Shadow and hissing at this woofie whenever possible.

Photobucket

I has not told the mom lady person what my name is yet. She keeps calling me "Big Guy" and the big man calls me "Thumper". I think I'll wait awhile longer to let her know my name. I want to make sure I get to stay in this wonderful place before I let them all know my real name. (I LOVE IT HERE! ) Hows that? Did I do this blogging thing well?

TT's Saturday Matinee

Kittys grab yer beans, and watch this woofie!

Faith walks on two legs. In 2002, when she was borndid, she had 3 legs but because the only front leg was severely deformed they had to amputate it 7 months later. Watch the movie fer Faith's whole story!



This woofies name is Dominic. Dominic is a greyhound wif 2 legs too!



We also found this woofie Sugar amazing!




Sugar is a 2-legged miracle dog, who was found here in Taiwan more dead than alive as a puppy. She overcame abuse, pneumonia, a badly broken leg, an unsuitable adoption family, brain damage and ensuing paralysis from being left on a rooftop without any shade. http://www.AnimalsTaiwan.org rescued Sugar, gave her a wheelchair, and just found her a new family. After all she's been through Sugar has nothing but love to give. Love for humans and for the other animals in our family. With this video, which has now AIRED ON CNN!, we want to share the puppy love and spread the word about www.AnimalsTaiwan.org . Strays like Sugar need Animals Taiwan, a fully volunteer driven organization based in Taipei. Animals Taiwan needs you to please help us help more animals like Sugar. You may donate through Paypal. See http://www.animalstaiwan.org
