The Kitties Under The Stairs-an ode to Rescue kitties- everywhere by Orange Ruffy

A blistering NY day here
The air conditionings on
I stretch out on the floor
The pawrents are gone
And I'm thinking deep thoughts
As an Orange cat can
For we're deep and special
In Mango Cat land

And the Cat House cats wake in their place
Are they less worthy,
Do they have less grace?
I know if mom and dad could bring them all here
they would never know uncertainty, longing or fear

As a little stray, I had a big head
A small skinny body, I was rarely fed
Then I found my mom, and I found my Dad
And in a matter of moments my life turned glad

But why are those felines that get rescued and saved
By shelters and people who are caring and brave
Why are they treated as though they did wrong
As poor step cat children who just don't belong?

I have always been cared for with the best by my vet
I didn't like being there, but They are the best yet!
I know that they see me as more than a cat
I'm a spirit in fur and you can't beat that!

And my rescue friends, in the LIC heat,
You are my Kind, you're in from the street
You all so matter, you're my brothers in Fur
and this orange cat believe miracles occur.

We'll find a new Vet who will see you as you are,
Cats with survival skills, cats that go far
Cats who can do things, Cats they honor with time
Because Elderwise cats, they age like rare wine.

So little kitties, sit by my spot
A story I'm telling to keep you out of the hot
A tale of courage and cunning and fame and renoun
Of formerly ferals who once roamed the town
And found a home of their own, thats special and true
You see little kitties they're a part of you

For we're all furry legends,
we're royalty in fur
We're mircales of nature
With whiskers and purrs.
As Cats we're mysterious, as cats we once roamed
Through Egypt, Atlantis,
The Stars are our true home

Yes, whiskered wee ones,
I watch your eyes close,
In the cool of this room it's safe to doze
Send out your best purrs, send out your prayers
Send out good energy
For the Kitties Under The Stairs


With gratefulness, and tenderness, because there are so many- to love

Single Handsome FIV+ Orange Mellow Guy in search of a nice- Girlcat!

Hey everyone,
I'm a nice guy. I really am. I'm talented. I can compose a nice song with the best of 'em. I'm pleasant, I have good manners, don't talk about what goes on in the 'box', and I love good food. (got any chicken?)

That said, my secret admirer has given up on me.

I am sad.

The only attention I get is from Smokie-and I don't 'go' that way.

(Smokie is gay for those that don't know. While a handsome dude, I just like the girls, you know?)

Listen, ladycats..I got alot to offer. I'm a funny dude, very laid back. I like adventure. I am handsome, you can't deny that. I never got names as a dreamboat, but I'm a handsome irish dude.

I'm not a tom cat either, Ingen. I'm a Ruffy.

I survived on the streets, and now I enjoy the goodlife. Anyone game for getting to know me?

I'm worth knowing!

Yours truly,
Orange Ruffy


Lets help our fellow felines-these kitties need homes as- their owner is passing away.

Guys, just wanted to share Alex's find-these kitties need homes as their owner is passing.

I would be frightened if this were me, and my mom or dad weren't around. Would any of you who are considering cats consider these kitties?

I know many of you already have 'enough' kitties, and can't, but would you spread the word?

I always feel sad when I see that cats are in need of new homes. However, I have seen the magick of this place, and wanted to let everyone know that I believe in magick-and would love to see it happen for these guys.

Today...for whatever reason....I was t thinking of my pal, Boxie Brown. I wish we could go out carousing again. Headbonks, Boxie...and memories of fish and chicken and warm places in the sun.

love to ya all,
Orange Ruffy


After the Vet-

July 7th 2011 3:58 am
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ]

Well, I got carted off to see Big Vet. She did something to my eye that she's hoping will make it heal. My eye is not healing properly...she's hoping this will work. She also gave me a shot to stop the infection. And I got to get the medicine in my eye tonight again.

Bella goes back on Friday. She threw up last night and this morning. Mommy gave her a pepcid. She may need more medicine too..

Mommy thinks it's becuase daddy gave her 'her old' food, which he wasn't supposed to, but he forgotted. Mommy wasn't mad, but just worried. She wouldn't let Bella eat much last night, after she threw up she took away the food and wouldn't give her anything else, but Bella got some of the Bubs fish...she was determined.

I am not feeling bad today...just finished breakfast, now off to the windowsill and then the couch back for a nap.


I heard them say 'vet'. Uh oh!

I know they have plans of bringing me back 'there' because of my eye. Well, it is still bothering me. It doesn't help that Bub leaps out and tries to get me from behind when I can't see. It makes me nervous. I like to wait til mommy's in the bathroom to use the box-Mommy yells at the Bub to leave me alone.

But oh no, not the vet again!

Miss Rachel was here. She's really nice. She fed us. I wish she could just bring Big Vet here to see me.

So much better.

Oh well, I just better watch out and see...I know that it's not so bad-I guess.


Good morning and Good news!

Hi everyone out there, coming to you from the top of the loveseat!
Just wanted to say happy 4th! and it is a happy one...

Daddy got a call about his biopsy. They will look again in 3 months, bloodwork, another pet scan. But so far 'it looks ok!"

The doc scared daddy because she told him that the type of cancer he had was 'very, very serious'.

This scared mommy, and I think it scared daddy, too, but we know it was thanks to everyone who prayed and purred and sent good thoughts our way that helped!

I'm so glad-whew, because you know my Daddy is my world! Well, aside from Chicken, that is!

Mommy and Daddy are going to be 'home' this holiday weekend. They don't like to go off to much near holidays like this because they worry with the noise for us. And I know mommy has been concerned about Bella...and daddy says that finding a vacation place to take all of us is hard.

The word 'petsitter' has been bandied about, but mommy wants someone who would spend more time with us than most do.

Well, everyone, I'm going to have my morning snooze on the back of the sofa here.

Speak with all of you soon,
love and grateful purrs,

....Missing my secret admirer!


From the Ruffster, some words of wisdom and truth

June 23rd 2011 1:04 pm

My dear Catster's humans...
I am going to do sometihng I never do-it's just not in my nature. I'm going to do it because it's sometihng you all need to know.

Cats belong inside. I know. I know. Some of you are going to jump up and justify why you let your cat out...but you need not.
I'm not talking here of cats that go out on leashes and harnesses, or cats who go out in enclosed spaces supervised by their humans.
Im talking about cats who are 'let out' to roam and hunt and, well, whatever.
Why am I taking a stand on this?
Simply put for this reason. It cause heartache, pain, guilt and stress. For the human, that is. And for a feline-it could mean becoming lost, injured or killed.
Dear humankind, when you stretched out your hand and made us your Guides, you took responsiblity for us, as you would for those two legged small humans-you know-hukits. Well, you wouldn't let a hukit out to hunt or play alone would you? Not when it's small and could be at risk of harm? And they are not nearly as tame and helpless as we.
Well, we're strong, smart spirits. But this funny old world is a complicated one for 'roamer' cats. I speak from experience, you see. I was one.
It's evident from my sweet and charming nature I belonged to someone.
I dislike the BUB, but it is an odd, funny looking little thing that a couple of mommy's human friends have 'ooohed, what sort of Cat is That?!' pointing at the BUB with round eyes and mouths.
The Bub was cocky, well groomed and spayed when found. She was also hungry, frightened and alone. She tried to squeeze into someone's door.
I had a rough time living outside. Yet, I never held it against anyone.
Daddy believes that someone lost me early on in my young life. Something happened that caused me to have ruptured eardrums and a fear of loud things.
But I have always liked people.
Why do I bring this up? Because as felines, we can all so easily become lost, get stolen, be attacked by another animal or a person who doesn't like cats (shocking to believe there are people like that, but there you go!) But this is something to really think about.
This isn't a scolding or a warning. It's a statement coming from a very mellow cat who grows sad when he sees posts about cats being lost, being hit by cars, and, well, stuff like that. It should not end that way.
Being outside is hard. It's not may think, from your part of the world that it's 'unfair' for a cat to be 'indoor only'. I assure you that's not true. And if you have the urge to really allow your cat friend to experience being outside, get a harness and a leash and go out together. We really like that, you know.
I know, I know, you hear your kitty cry to go out, they slip out, etc. But then go after them if they get out. My cousin blackie was an escape artist for years.
Sadly, it's probably also how he got FIV+. It's probably also when I got FIV+. I'm being a pirate cat just now with one good eye because the medicine is taking a long time to work with my FIV+. So it's no joke, you see. Obviously, someone with the virus bit me when I was 'out there'.
So, as I sit here on the back of the counch and feel a bit sad for a kitty who's passed....I send a little meow of comfort and hope to their person. And I meow to all of the kitties out there still 'out in the cold' on this warm day....and I wish them full bellies and good homes...and someone to love them.

Power of the Paw to all...with love and light, now and always,


Pirate cats of the world unite!

So on Sunday Daddy put me back in the traveling box and took me back to the vet. She's not our regular vet but the one who is 'new' on Sunday. She told mommy and daddy the little scratch I got on my cornea is about 80 per cent healed but not where it should be. I am not opening my eye all the way.
I told them I'm practising to be a pirate, and to leave me alone, but no, she changed the ani biotic and took blood in case this doesn't work to find out what antibiotic would be best for me.
So I got to go back in 10 days.
I get no peace here.

I apologize for not being on as much. Mommy has been running around because her step dad is in the hospital. He was really sick but seems to be doing better. My dad gets his Pet scan on the 24 of June. I don't know which pet they are going to I'm going to hide in case they decide I'm a 'pet' and they try to scan me.

Well, coast is clear for now, time to nap on the back of the couch til the peoples get home and it's time to eat again.

Ah, the life of a Pirate Cat


Natalies last chemo (hopefully) today, a tribute to Vern,- and a word about Huey

May 3rd 2011 7:57 am
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

Hello Catster friends,

Just a word to let you know that Natalie was off bright and early this morning for what will hopefully be her last chemo. Smokie celebrated by racing back and forth around the apartment once daddy took Natalie in her little carrier off to the vet. I was glad when I saw the carrier go off without me. Whew!
Natalie made a little noise. She didn't like going off before finishing her breakfast. But daddy tied a can of food in a bag to her carrier for her for later.

I was sad to read about Vern-mommy had leaky eyes. Many years ago a small boned black oriental kitten of 5 months owned Mommy. She let mommy take her home from the shelter for awhile-mommy knew she had FIP and wanted to give her a chance to have a 'kittenhood'. When mommy see's a cat so young go to the Bridge from FIP, it makes her so sad. Mommy would like to see FIP stopped-and would love to do something towards that. Mommy and Daddy and all of us send lots of purrs and prayers to Vern's family. Mommy blows a kiss to Verns mom and says 'You have great Karma'

I say this to you Vern: You are one funny little dude with orange fur. We know that your job here was to bring a gift to your mom and dad. And you did your job and you're home...and you'll be back, dude. Sure as my bowl will be filled again with chicken.

So....everyone in NY who's seeking another feline....

Mommy met a great cat on Sunday who really needs a great home. She's a tiny mackrel brown tabby of 4 years who weighs about 5lbs and has a very loud voice. If mommy and daddy won the lottery, they would buy a big house and have all of us. But since there is no room here mommy would like to help Huey find a great home with someone who loves her.

Huey is currently living at Bobbi & The Strays shelter at Atlas Park in Glendale, NY. She has tiny paws, a tiny face, and a really big MEOW! Mommy would be happy to help anyone who wants to visit Huey to do so! Just let her know.

So, it's a sunny nice day here. I'm going to doze on the back of the loveseat and watch the birds outside this window eating the bread mommy put out.

love to all of you guys
