We're fast and we're long
We're small and we're fat
Some of us with stripes
And some do wear hats
We slink through the garden
We leap from high shelves
Filled with mirth and clownish
Or mysterious like elves
We arrive at your door
From shelters or as strays
Some of us making it, some passing away
But before we leave
We touch you with grace
A gentle warm pawprint
To the side of your face
And we are the magick of Cat
We know our way through ancient times to now times
To being here today
We are immortal, we come to grace your life
So let the magick of cat
come pace through your life
We grab your heart, we race through your life
A patchwork of color
Designed by light
We touch your soul with expressive meow
Knowing all that nature has ever allowed
And we're the magick of cat
Striped, orange, and grey
We're purring at your side
Yet so far away
We watch in the night
Dance with unseen friends
For we know that death-well it's not the end
So I step down to the floor
I go to my bowl
Copper eyes reflect back
The world I control
There isn't a lack
Of eons of mystery, of centeries of grace
Combined altogether in my perfect face
And the magick of cat,
with butterfly wings
And angel delights are all good things
The magick of cat makes a house a home
So climb on your folks so they aren't alone
The lesson my friends, lives where we are
Beings of magick, under wandering star
Yet purring for home, a warm place in the sun
We're the magick of cat
And I'm proud to be one.
Dedicated today to my buddy Squeaker....happy birthday my friend...follow your star....

Dear Furs and Folks,
Pandas son, beloved little Forest G has crossed Rainbow Bridge. His adoptive family had moved to Florida. When they were at work there was a thunderstorm and lightning struck the house. Forest G, along with their dogs, didn't make it.
As you can imagine, Blizzards Dad is very upset. When our folks send us off to new homes-which does happen when there are kittens...they don't ever expect news such as this.
We ask for purrs tonight for Forest G, his family, and Momma Panda, Bliz, and the rest of the Taneytown crew...especially Daddy John.
For Forest G....
There was once a kit amoung kits
Funny loving with purrs,
A little fellow with gumption
He had cattatude
He romped and he played, kept Panda going
It's our Forest G, if you weren't knowing
And he hid and he loved and he played and shone bright
Our Forest G is a bright star tonight
So a family came along, who fell for him hard
It was a good thing, it was all in the cards
He had a home before that, but it wasn't right
So Daddy John said 'Forest, we'll just hang on tight
For he sought adventure, and he sought open space
Forest G was the cat with a bright open face
And so came a family, who saw him and knew
That Forest G was their guy, and he liked them, too.
Sad were the goodbyes as he bid Panda farewell,
All those around him, now they wished him well
And he was cuddled and loved, and went off to a new life
For it's the way of young cats sometimes, and it's just alright.
And Forest G danced the dance of life all around
A handsome young boycat, who went out on the town
He liked to play, and he had a dog all his own
Ah Forest G, who would have known.
But today the news came no one wants to hear
the house Forest lived in is no longer there
there was a storm, lighning stuck the home
Forest G and his dogs were there all alone
And they couldn't get out, no, we say as we cried
For our Forest G and his dogs, well, yes, they all died.
But I see a bright star, and I'm one to believe
that we may say goodbye but we don't really leave
We leap from earthly bodies, up and out into light
Ah now Forest G, I know you're all right
And I trot to the window, and I breathe in spring air
And I see you wink, yep it's Forest up there,
Chasing Tigger and others, all through the night
Ah, thats our Forest, and he's just out of sight
And Forest G, you remain in our hearts
Once a little kitten, you had a bright start
And you pass your legacy, to Novi, Sweetie and all
I salute you our Forest...the most resiliant of all!
Dear Forest, his family, his canine siblings, and most of all, Daddy John and the Taney town crew....
Our thoughts and purrs are with you.
Love and light,

I was a diary pick and didn't even know it! Mom goes to school all day on Sat, and was so tired she never even checked Catster til today. She has been trying to take care of all of us-you see, we have a bad URI going around....
Now wait, it's not too bad! We're all eating, so thats good. But even little Calvin has it. So far Smokieboo and Natalie are spared. I think Natalie is just too mean for anything to get her. It's like it would fear her if it did.
I got dipped despite the sneezies. Mom wasn't too pleased, and they told mom no antibiotics-just lysine. So daddy makes me take a syringe full of it and then Mom gives me more in my food. I eat it cause I'm hungry.
Midnight may go to the vet today-he's got it worst right now, and mom is concerned about his eye and listlessness. CK is the only one wanting to play, and it's troubling him that no one is up to playing with him. His cold is mild, and he's doing pretty well.
Mom is doing ok....she is waiting for her COBRA to kick in because she needs to see a doctor because she has some pain in her elbow and hand that she doens't write with but types with. She's also in school on Sat all day and some of the day on Tuesday now. She has alot of HOMEWORK so she hasn't had too much time to devote to me as she should.
Then she has an internship 4 days a week.
I miss her when she's not here-I have gotten to like having more mom time, more snacks, and petting.
I'm thinking of all of you, with much love and many, many purrs....
love and light,
