Dear Furs and Folks,
Mommy got a call from Miss Kaci Sunshine's mom. Miss Kaci hasn't been well and is not eating.
Could we all purr and pray for her and her mom? Her mom has been quite sad and very worried. Miss Kaci is an only cat after her sister Miss Mittens went to the Bridge. Miss Mittens Rainbow Bridge day is fast approaching.
Miss Kaci's mom is missing her, and is so worried about Kaci.
She hasn't had the heart to come here, but mommy said she and I wanted to ask for purrs and she said that would be ok....
Would you all purr up a storm for our little friend, Miss Sunshine?
love and light,

She's written about it in her diary, but my elder sisfur has lost a half a pound, is down to 5 and a half pounds and her anemia is getting into the bad range.
Bella is my mom's 'Kitty Girl'. She's our eldest here, and perhaps, really, the reason Mom works for us all so much.
Mommy said that little vet looked at her and said 'you are doing all you can do....getting old is not for sissies.'
Could I ask some power of the paw for Bella?
thank you all,
love and light,

In 2005 Mommy remembers watching a very similar hurricane make it's way up the coast.
While Issac isn't taking the same route exactly, and is much weaker, we are concerned about our furrends and their pawrents on the Coast.
Would everyone please purr for them?
We know what this is to them, and we are concerned.
Purrs and loving energy to you guys,

I am a comfortable, mango cat guy
A cat who will always know where best to lie
A soft warm couch back, or a pillow I'll find
A filled up food dish, and a daddy who's mine
And I wish the same, for all of the furrs
Out on the lam, and fresh out of purrs
I once roamed the streets, I once shivered with cold
No more a kitten, but not very old
I wound up outside, without a home
All of a sudden left all alone
I found a place to sleep, people fed me
But I was nobody's cat, and it sucks if thats 'free'.
I tried so hard, I was a good boy
I never scratched or bit, I didn't annoy
I would meow to folks, who'd pass me right by
I didn't under stand, I wondered why
As I watched folks sit by their tv
I wondered why sometimes they didn't want me.
And then I found people, who loved all cats
They were special folks, imagine that
I found my way to their place, and into their hearts
I wasn't perfect, but I know I was smart
I came to trust, they forgave me my ways
When the few times I scratched like when I was a stray
And I know they are special, they are, yes, kind
More folks like them are what we need to find
To rescue a fur from a euth list cage
For does it so matter, what breed or what age
We are all cats, divine with magick souls
Miracles in fur, fairytales to be told
So as I look over mom's shoulder tonight
Tears on her cheeks, it doesn't seem right
As the 'list' shows those cats that won't see tomorrow night
I'm grateful for her, for dad for the light
That springs up in the sky, a blue moon thats rare
As miracles unfold, and folks learn how to care
And each one, teach one, find a cat to save
for we deserve to be swept out, we face all so brave
Each one teach one, tell your neighbor and friend
They can stop the darkness, they can stop 'the end'
For as Cats we are Familars, we bring luck and cheer
A myrid of colors of furs, tails and ears
Each one teach one, reach for your feline
Save a life, free a soul, and know the divine
for surely as you reach out and touch that little paw
What's Divine touches back, you'll know what it's all for
And I lick mommys hand and she pats my head
As she scoops me up and says 'Boog, it's time for bed'.
And turns off the puter, and closes her eyes,
As I leap to the sill-the moon lights up the sky
I purr and I reach out to the cat face
For, yes, my Blue Moon, I know your style and your grace
As I purr for the cats out there tonight,
I stand up on my hinds, in the last of the light
and whisper to Alex, and Tigger, Harry and all
Look after them all furrs, use your magick to call
Those folks who are empty and need the magick of furr
Let them find their way, weave the spell with your purrs
Each one teach one, tie the cord with silk
Lighter than sunbeams and purer than milk
Each one teach one, pad cross their dreams
Into their hearts so they know what 'Cat' means
Each one teach one, angels all tonight
Find our furrs homes and all the good things
and with a small purr as my eyes close
I touch my heart to you cross the distance
and feel your warm nose
I understand, and I know, I do
The fate of forever that awaits you
Yet theres that moon, magick surrounds you
I whisper it all to the orb of blue
Each one teach one,
I purr with intent
I love you all, and the magicik is sent
Across the world, purring with faith
All love and light and miracles made
As I whisper to Alex and see her leap far
Just past the moon....to follow that star....
Dedicated to all the Cats who face Eternity with rumbling purrs and
for who I must believe....miracles do occur...
this night of the Blue Moon.....
love and light,

Mom belongs to a list for cats with FIV+.
This week, one of the 'members' who had lost a cat last year to the complications that can come with FIV adopted a kitten from a shelter.
In two days, the kitten became ill and she took the kitten to her vet. The kitten had some of the symtoms of URI, as well as a possible calici virus.
She had an account for the kitty here.
Mommy got the post yesterday that she returned the kitty to the shelter.
Mommy is upset-because the girl could not even tell her if it was a kill shelter or not. How could anyone do this? The girl had a form of insurance that covered the animal for some time, but when she called there was no one there, as it was a holiday weekend.
This has upset Mommy, because if a kitty is returned to a shelter that does euthanize, that's it. They don't get 'another chance'.
I spent the night in the bedroom last night, and Natalie was in a state...mommy emailed her vet because the medicaiton is obviously making her act worse...Natalie attacked daddy Sat night and Mommy this morning.
Mommy just scooped her up and said 'Oh Nat, I am so sorry. So sorry'. They had taken her to the vet yesterday to have her re-examined, but her glands are fine. Mommy wrote the vet and said Natalie needs to come off the medicaiton-this is not good. Now Natalie is sleeping quietly beside Daddy. It's the only time Natalie is happy....and Mommy doesn't want that...she wants Natalie to be ok, because she loves her. Natalie, my odd orangie sister may be odd, indeed, but what does it matter? She's part of our Tribe, an opinionated, intelligent, funny, and much loved member. She is my sister, and I sleep as close as she will allow so as to bestow healing and light.
I count myself a very lucky cat. I see around me wonderful furs, and their folks....someone asked in a forum 'are pet parwrents 'mommies'? My answer is they are Mommies and Daddies and Sissies and Brofurs and...they are our family. We are not 'lesser than'. If anything, we are 'more than' because we are loved and cherished. We look at our people as our Folks, part of our Tribe, our Guardians upon whom we bestow our magick and love and light.
And as I purr and lay here, after a good breakfast, my heart goes out to this kitty...who was returned. Not because she was naughty....for kittens are supposed to be that....but because she was ill. She wasn't given a chance. You don't give up on someone when things are not 'perfect'. You work with your vet to make the kitty well, and you communicate and let the shelter know that the kitty is ill as well....they may have suggestions.
Mommy doesn't understand...and I am sad. For to me, perhaps knowing how lucky and blessed I am...and as you, my furs are, to have families that have faith, and hope and love us enough to say 'this is my baby..my love...my life.....the good times, the times when we aren't well....we will be loved and cared for. It doesn't matter the circumstance, for we are here for good or bad, in sickness and health...until...well...we stand at the foot of the Bridge, glance back with a tender look, and say 'I love you, and love is forever. Thank you for never giving up....'
Mommys eyes are leaking for an ill and frightened kitten today....
love and light...with big rumbling purrs...
I send you healing and love little one....
and purr with all my heart you are given another chance to find someone who will never give up on you.
love and light,

It's been a lovely few days,
Words out on the town and out on the street
That Gumpy Sweet Boy left for Rainbow this week
Checking out of this plane in mystic cat speak
Now I feel sorta sad, but I know what I know
We cats are born knowing where we will go
When we leave our old bodies that don't work any more
We simply open a window instead of a door
And leap free of stress and sorrow and pain
We learn to be young and kittens again
And after we cross, we collide at the bar
A place called O'Casey's just south the North Star
A salute awaits you, you'll find warmth love and cheer
Not to mention they have the best Guiness and beer
Gumpy Sweet Boy, you're a legend you know,
They'll meet you at O'Caseys and put on quite a show
I hear tell Tigger does tricks, Alfie's got pirate tails
Squeaker sings songs, Boxie's got racing snails
The girl cats galore will flock over to you,
A handsome boycat, you won't know what to do
I can see them quay up, try to catch your attention,
Circles, Queen T...beauties too many to mention
And O'Caseys will be packed and you'll have a great time,
As they celebrate your life, you know you'll be fine
I know as I lay back and purr now tonight
A right bunch of cat kind will see you alright
Ah, but I know you're thinking, what about Mom,
Is she ok, can she go on
But you know the answer, it's there in your heart
You and your mom will never part
You'll fly different paths, above her you'll glide
Just above clouds, carried in by the tide
To rub at her leg, and purr in your place
She'll know youre there though she won't see your face
You'll send her blessings with what you both know
Oh Gumpy my friend, there's strength in Rainbow
And O'Caseys will sing, all one perfect rhyme
Singing you home, back to your time
To soft winter coats, and warm summer kisses
To adventures on leashes and heaped favorite food dishes
Dreamtime is realtime, walkabout for real
We're born in between worlds to a love that we feel
Finding our pawrents, entwining our souls
Lush whisker kisses, eyes dark as coal
Leaping into the air, streaking back home
To the person who loves you-you see, they aren't alone
And how will you come-as a kitten or cat?
Well, I'm not for the tellling of the mystery of that
We're creatures, fey mystics, we don't kiss and tell
I smile at it all for it's all for the well
As I watch the new profile, the new spangled fur
You see it's why I trust Miracles Occur
So back here my friends, this third rock from the sun
I salute you at O'Casey's and hope you're having fun
As I send out a low purr to Gumpy Sweet Boy McGee
Who's found his freedom and is flying far and free
Gumpy-I have yet to meet a a more Gentleman Cat who could dress so well, and so loved by the ladycats. I saltue you with divine intent, and send you on your way with the most heartfelt and wonderous wishes. Xeper and Remanifest my dear friend, my hero, one of the Greatest of the Greats.
We love you Gumpy. We love you.
Trust that Miracles Do Occur.
Love is Forever.

It's been one of those weeks,
I reflect as I wait
I think fish is cooking, or maybe it's steak
I'm feeling hungry, and my stomach rules me
Meowing and 'rrrpting' thats where I be
As I think, yep I'm all for purrs..
I always say 'Trust Miracles Occur'.
Bella, farewell, in your honor we feast
A most brave little cat, or is it Beasel Weast?
A funny fey soul with a soft deep meow
Oh my pretty sister you are loved then and now
Bella, it's not often, I muse for my own
You, like Garbo, preferred being alone
But you weren't so much so for you welcomed me in
A scraggly cat coat did you see where you'd been?
Ah but we're cats-we're one of a kind
Feline blythe spirts and mysterious minds
I look up at your picture, regal cat Queen
Mommy's Familar and love , you were a team
Moving through life with a tiny curled lip
You loved your sunspot and toys with catnip
A Turkish Angora come in from the cold
You looked like a kitten but your soul was old
We rest and we play, we purr and we eat
We're Blythe Funny Spirits that land on our Feet
You had your times, a long full cat life
Full of adventures-you were all right
Now your spots empty on the loveseat
No more here will you wait for something good to eat
I'm sad for Mommy, I purr on Daddys lap
As he takes off his jacket and hangs up his cap
I remember gathering round you, that last cool old night
I met Alex at the window feeling delight,
But she spread her wings, hovered in the air
Whispered so sadly 'On a wing and a prayer..
I greet you my friend with immortality
When the time's right- you're coming with me
I will stay close, no matter what gives
I promise you Bella, theres more life to live
Across the stars, yet so very close
For your pawrents and family, for the heart always knows
That the barrier is made of the softest weave
They will see you again, they must only believe..'
I said 'But Alex, you know Mom needs her...
I've always assured that miracles occur
If Bella leaves, what will I say, I'll be a liar
You must find a way-to keep her here,
With renewed youth and health,
My Angel Alex, you know this yourself.'
And Alex sighed and softly set down
Said 'oh my poor Ruffy-haven't you found
That Miracles are made, every moment with faith
Dear Baboo Kitty, you've only to wait
But Bella is ready, by years here she's old
It's been a long timetime now in from the cold
I know it's hard-our humans will grieve
I know my mommy does though I know she believes
That we'll meet again, we'll be together
In a place thats so wonderful across Forever
Bella herself's a Miracle Fur
Rescued and loved, yes Miracles Occur
It won't be for long that she's gone you see
But for now little Bella deserves to fly free
And I saw my friend Gumpy grooming Bellas head
He saw me and said 'Ruffy, you know it's time for bed-
Bella will be fine, she's ready to fly
I wanted to come too Ruffy-and tell you why...
Bella completed a Mission-she was the first Rescue Cat
A miracle in Fur, yep, imagine that,
She loves your Mommy, your Daddy too,
She loves you all my friend and all that you do
A turkish Angora, who was lost and alone
She found the best people, a loving home
So many years filled with joy, love and tears
Oh, gosh Ruffy, there were so many years
And Bella leaned ovr with her soft gentle eyes
Said 'take care of our parents so the'll realize
That I made this choice, and I'll be fine
Give them love Ruffy-you can have all thats mine
My little bed, my favorite toys
All my treats-and share with the boys
Don't let Princess pick on you, hold out on your own
Be strong now Ruffy, for you aren't alone
I'll be close by, I'll purr and call
To you when you want me, there are no walls
I'll come to visit, with Gumpy and friends
This is just see you later, it's not the end...
And I fell alseep,
The next day we gathered,
All of the Clowder
For all the purrs mattered
And with a last little look
A last half cat smile
She got in her carrier
Still with her style
And she blinked slowly, and
Said 'Ruffy-it's fine
I'm not at all worried-it's just my time
and I sat up on my hinds
Smokie did too,
He said 'I salute you-as a Russian Blue
And then CK came up and he leaned against me
With large knowing eyes he said 'I'll be good-you'll see!'
And Princess crept up, flower face sad
'I will follow your magick, and I'll always be glad
For you're my inspiration, your the first of us all
Mommys kitty girl forever, your story we'll recall'
Now cats, you see, I didn't grieve
I purr strong for Mommy,
I always believe,
For Alex my angel, came to me last night
Said 'Bellas with us Ruff, and she's doing alright
I wanted you to understand, forever to know
We cats know the magick beyond the rainbow
Bella will rest and then she'll return
Eventually Ruffy, with all that she's learned
You sense this my friend, as you look in my eyes
We're born cats knowing, the wisdom of the wise
So, now Ruffy...I'll tell you this for you know
We all k now the way across Rainbow
Alex rose on hind paws, groomed a spot by my ear
I felt sad and happy, but there was no fear
I crossed the carpet, to beg at Daddys feet
and he said 'Hey Baboo, do you want to eat?'
Then Mommy picked up Princess, and kissed her brow
As the little minx squeaked a tiny meow
and Mommys laughed as I ran up to the Fridge
As I knew Bella purred....
From across Rainbow Bridge
My dear Sisfur.....I salute you as the First of the Magick!
I salute you with all Orangies, to honor and bow before...
a True Elderwise Soul..
We love you Bella. And we are a Part of you as Cat.
We are all a part of one another...
And I salute you...
with Power of the Paw
Now and Forever
We love you, and Love is Forever
Trust that Miracles Do Occur,
Love and light,
Ruffy and the Kew Gardens Cats

Thank you so much for all your thoughts and kindess regarding Bellas passing.
It's been a trying week here for Mommy and Daddy-the day Bella went to the Bridge, when Daddy went to his job as a chef, there was another chef in his kitchen. The owner told him he wasn't needed anymore.
The owner called him the day after and told him he was sorry-and wrong, and asked for Daddy to come back. Daddy however is looking for another job,and out of work for a week because of the Jewish Holidays. (he worked at a Kosher steakhouse.) he's also looking for another position, and we will be moving the end of the week...as you know, we cats never like that, but so long as my people and the food are going, thats ok.
I wanted to ask you all a favor. Taffy's Mom adopted a lovely, older cat who she named Amy Rose from a Sanctuary called The Last Post in Ct. She could not leave this lovely, sweet, older kitty behind. She adopted her, and took her to the vet, and they told her she was 17 years old.
Amy Rose had 5 days with her mom, and very suddenly left for Rainbow Bridge.
Amy Rose didn't have many friends here-there simply wasn't much time, and we know not many know. Would furs go over to her page, and leave a condolance message, or some kind thought?
She reminds Mommy of a long, graceful Bella like cat...and she has the most otherworldly gentle eyes.
Fly Far and Free Amy Rose. You came in from the cold. You mattered...and you are much loved.
love and light,

We will be moving in a few days...I sense this, for I have moved before. I look up at the picture of Bella above the loveseat...it's not been taken down yet. I know that Mommy and Daddy are putting it off.
I sense my sisfur...she hasn't returned yet, I believe that she needs the healing and restoration of 'the other side' to do that. I believe as I sit here, though, others come.
They come and they play and they wave bushy or slinky tails, and touch noses to mine. Sometimes they run and frisk, leaping high.
Sometimes they gather all the energy particles and molecules they can....bunch them up, and create form for us to see....and maybe, our people, too.
And they can shift those particles, to soar higher, appear larger or to fade into the walls or gather strength and leap so high...and glide through the portal.
They do it for fun. They do it because they can. They do it to assure us and our humans we can.
They play hide and seek with this dimension.
They streak through walls and back, and then, as though to say yes, I am here, they Manfiest.
And so they play for awhile, visitors when they want or need to come, to comfort, to frisk, to experience and love on those still here. They may do this days, years or indefinately. Some will wait til their family gather on the other side...
But eventually, for most, those who have gathered the wisdom, gleaned the softness of the inbetween, and basked in the sun on both sides of the rainbow, there comes that time....
the yearning grows...they long, once more to have form. To touch with a paw, to feel their person touch back, to purr to those they have known.
It's chancy...for none of us can control the swing and boom of destiny, like a sailboat on a racing run, it's on it's own course, and we, once we plunge into that stream must allow it to carry us at it's own pace...even if that pace handles us roughly, or puts us somewhere we do not anticipate.
We know we have gained wisdom, as we gaze out, fresh from the inbetween, from the magicial breath of Forever and the Bridge Across it.
We can't explain to ourselves, this urgent urge to rebirth, to turn the lines around ourselves to pure spiritual fire, ignighting in the velvet darkess, a space vessel entering earths orbit at lightspeed, we make that jump.
And with front paws extended, land with a thump, back on the third rock from the sun.
We touch down, gaze around...with wonder, with grace, with faith.
And we purr and begin.
For Amy Rose-life, my sweetheart, for us, is ever present and constant. I sit up on my hind paws Amy Rose, and purr....
love and light,

Hi folks and furs,
We're sorry we've been scarce. This has been a week of it for sure. Daddy was laid off, and is looking for a job. Mommy is working, and for whatever reason, they are giving her a very hard time at work with her hours, her internship hours, and everything. She's in school and doing an internship, has a paper due and is emotionally exhausted.
We moved on Friday, but all our stuff finally was here today when Daddy got the rest of it here. We really like it here, though it's still making my other fur family nervous-I've moved before and they haven't.
As soon as mommy can, she'll update on us all. We do like having this long long apartment to run back and forth. We have our cat tree up against the window, and we look out every morning.
Mommy is so tired. She's missing Bella so much and I do what I can, we all do.
You'll never guess this...Smokie and Natalie are 'getting on'. that is he isn't attacking her and she's wandering around the new place and has even been on the cat tree! Daddy still keeps her in the bedroom area though when he's not here.
So we are around...it's just been so tiring for Mommy and Daddy...but know we aren't too far away...
and yours truly is having a blast!
purrs to all...
