We have a Birthday cycle starting all over again here at the Junction. I can't believe another year has come and gone. Daylight savings time recovery is now under our belts. Now we are about to be whammed with Spring in a few days. Many don't believe it. They are still looking out the window and seeing nothing but snow.
Soon the new kittens will be arriving and the flowers coloring many yards and parks.
Most of those New Years resolutions have long been forgotten. In the northern hemisphere we are all feeling a renewed vigor awakening inside us. Lets make the best of the days to come. Let each one of us do one good deed for a kitty in need this fine Spring. Support a NO KILL shelter. Help a kitty in need. Volunteer for one day, helping a animal charity.
Lets make this the best Spring for the Cats.

Do you think there is feline life on another planet??? If you do think there is, how do you think they compare with our fur's??.


Cats Whiskers

When Girl Human was about 4 years old she cut all our cats whiskers off with a pair of kids scissors. Her father taught her a lesson that day and this was it.

Cat whiskers are like thick extra sensitive hairs. They help the cat balance and feel air and objects that help the cat navigate.

Cat's whiskers are very sensitive and can even feel light breezes in your house. The whiskers will move slightly when air or an object hit it and send a signal to the brain telling the cat that there is an object or current. Cats use their whiskers to help see in the dark by feeling air currents and objects around them. Cats also use their whiskers to judge if they can fit through a small opening or hole.

If a cat should lose its whiskers somehow then the cat will be confused and off balance and may run into objects. Cats have whiskers not only next to their nose but above their eyebrows as well.

Though whiskers are mostly found in the cat family other animals have whiskers as well such as squirrels, mice, seals and a few other animals.

What do you think???

I read a statement from a book by a farmer who's farm, I visited Sat..
It stated, "Animals have no souls".

I believe a farmer must think that way, in order to be a farmer and he does not wined up with an animal Sanctuary.

I want to know where is a line drawn to say animals, have no souls.

Just look deep into any animals eyes and believe there is emptiness inside. They breath, love, have fun, cry, hurt, grieve, feel pain, care and protect their young, and live here on earth just as Humans do.

Do you think this is or, is not a justified statement????
I would love to have some input on this subject!!!

Let's have a little to ponder tonight.


Thank you everyone for being so, Catster wonderful

We are all tired here. Needed to drop in and pay a short visit and leave a message from me.
I just wanted you to know that, Blue left for the Bridge at 5:00 p.m. today. The vet said it was his time. His FIV+ would never allow his skin to heal. He also had another spot on his neck. The Cancer was spreading.
Forgive us for not staying here long tonight. Girl Human said, I can spend more time tomorrow night sending messages and thank you's.
We now hope that all our guys will healthy and happy for a long time to come. We knew that Blue would be traveling bu,t it was just the question of when.
He looked so peaceful when we placed him next to Ickie II this evening. Girl Human was glad to see him finally happy and out of pain. We love him and will miss him but know it was his time to leave us.
Thank you again for being here for us. Good night for now.


Blue will be flying to the Bridge tomorrow

Thank you everyone for your kind words. Blue is going to be a very gentle sweet addition to the Bridge. I'm glad that he will be greeted by many Catster Angels.
I know he will be so happy to be home with Ickie II. Blue was concerned my Step Dad. He took very good care of Amber, Pooh Bear and I when we were babies. He was our Guardian when we were feral.
He played with us and stayed with us when our mommy, Ickie II would go out for a few hours. He loved all of us. He washed us and slept with us. We were at the age of wanting to adventure out on our own. He was the only father we ever knew.
He never gave us AIDS even though he got very sick and was found to be positive shortly after we were captured. We three were fostered until the new Junction was ready for us to move to.
The Humans are taking Blue tomorrow for his journey. They were going to wait another week but feel his journey to the Bridge needs to be Thursday. We will shed tears but know we have been so very lucky to have been able to give him a long life. Thank you everyone for being here for us..


Another Angel in training is getting ready to leave for the- Bridge soon

Girl Human told Male Human today that we need to make reservations for Blue at the Bridge. He will be going very soon.
He has Cancer of the ear and is FIV+. Since he is 20years old we decided not to have him go through having his ear removed. The rest-- Chemo is impossible to even think of having him go through. We are planning on helping him go to the bridge very soon.
We don't consider it a sad occasion as he has been wanting to join his LOVE Ickie II since she left a year and a half ago. I know they will both be so happy to be together.
He is such a sweet gentle boy and we do not want him to go through the pain that will be in his near future. He is showing signs of the ear bothering him and the area is raw and never completely healing. Each time it gets bigger and worse.
He has had a long wonderful life and we are so happy to have had him with us so very long.
