The day before Samhain-and the Baboo Kitty has a Request

Dear Furs and Folks,

Today I've had some special Nine Lives tuna. Mom found I like it, and because I do, I get it when I want it.

Now, today as the sun tries to peek through the clouds, I feel the magick,
which always sends off tiny sparks, descend in earnest. (who's he, anyway?)

I would ask a favor.....

So many have gone to the many furrs. I know their folks are very sad, as is to be expected.

But so many, as the weather many places grows chill-especially in the evening...need homes.

As I watch a tired little feral make his way across the street, mommy holding me, she puts me down gently. 'Wait, Ruffy' she says. She goes to the kitchen and I follow. She takes two cans of food, and puts them in a dish and brings them out to the spot where ferals can eat. There is a colony here, but another lady on the street behind is gravely ill, and her cats have been coming to eat. And there have been two recent 'dumps' who have come as well. We think this is one of them.

I watch Mommy and so does the tired stripped cat. He crouches and waits for her to retreat, then goes to the dish and begins to gulp the food. He eats everything, and then, glances around, and low to the ground, slinks out of sight, down a driveway. But he'll be back later, after dark.

The Rescue lady mommy works with picked up a cat last week who she has with her boarding. He's a Siamese, and has been dumped. He's half blind, he can't see from one eye. He's frightened, but getting better. He may stay with her, as no one seems to want him. He can't get 'shown' because he's not friendly yet, and may never be. Perhaps his last act of courage was to find her.

So...tonight, pet the furs you have. If they have left for the bridge and you are sad, pour the sadness into honor for them...reach a feral who has no one. Adopt the least adoptable. Go to the kill shelter-tell them you want the one next to be put down. Be brave-for at your shoulder unseen stand the Guardians of the Gate, who will immediately shower you with love and blessings and light. You aren't alone, and will never be.

Take up a feral colony, help. Bring food. TNR with others, reach out and breathe in the magick that is cat, that we all are. That the cats who have passed on and turn to gaze back and say 'yes, I've taught you well-dance in the light'

For as the 'Season of Mystery' commences, there is no greater mystery than this:

'You must lose to find, you must feel the loss in order, always to find the immense joy that is ever yet present in a pair of golden eyes in sooty, unkept coat, a fearful stance, a soft hiss that bespeaks uncertainty. For beyond this....for underneath this always, and always will be, your beloved.

Love and Light and blessings,

For once-I am speechless. Perhaps I have to let someone else do it for me til the tears stop.....

J ersey Girl Dedicated to Miss Kaci Sunshine

Songwriters: TOM WAITS
I got no time for the corner boys
Down in the street making all that noise
Or the girls out on the avenue
`cause tonight i wanna be with you
Tonight i'm gonna take that ride
Across the river to the jersey side
Take my baby to the carnival
And i'll take her on all the rides

`cause down the shore everything's all right
You and your baby on a saturday night
You know all my dreams come true
When i'm walking down the street with you

Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la i'm in love with a jersey girl

You know she thrills me with all her charms
When i'm wrapped up in my baby's arms
My little girl gives me everything
I know that some day she'll wear my ring
So don't bother me man i ain't got no time
I'm on my way to see that girl of mine
`cause nothing matters in this whole wide world
When you're in love with a jersey girl

Sha la la la...

I see you on the street and you look so tired
I know that job you got leaves you so uninspired
When i come by to take you out to eat
You're lyin' all dressed up on the bed baby fast asleep
Go in the bathroom and put your makeup on
We're gonna take that little brat of yours and drop her off at your mom's
I know a place where the dancing's free
Now baby won't you come with me
`cause down the shore everything's all right
You and your baby on a saturday night
Nothing matters in this whole wide world
When you're in love with a jersey girl

Hello all,
The request about my health comes from Miss Sunshine herself, so I will duly update on me-but first-

Kaci Sunshine needs Power of the Paw! I'm asking all of us to please send them to her. She's having a bit of a time of it-she's not feeling so well today.

Could we all please purr up a good Power of the Paw for her?

as requested-about me-

I appear to be doing rather well! Last night daddy bought home good rotisserie chicken and I kept telling daddy 'now!!! now!!!! now!!!!! and I and Smokie were glued to him! I did get some chicken, and was very pleased. My appetite has been pretty good-I'm fed on demand, something I always enjoy, and mommy has even let me have some of the 'non healthy' foods I enjoy, in moderation.

I will be due for a recheck soon, for mommy's peace of mind more than mine-I take my medicine daily, for my heart. I won't take my liver suppliment-I've thrown it up twice, and argue about it so mommy will ask the vet at my next check up if there is another way to take it, and is looking up if it comes in a liquid, which is easier for me to take rather than big yucky pills. My heart pills are small!

My allergies have been kicking up, so I get a little 1/4 a pill for them, that also boosts my appetite, but mom doesn't give it every day as it drives her crazy as it's a 'meow' pill. So she's going to ask the vet about that too.

I sometimes run around and play. The little foster eats out of my dish with me, and thats fine-I'll find another plate sometimes when she does this...or sometimes just let her and continue eating. I loll in a warm little bed here in the living room...

Something very very wonderful happened a month back...some kind 'Friends' sent mommy and me a check to help us out! It was so much appreciated-because my sonogram and medicine that week were well over $600.00 and it was not expected. I want to thank these folks for that right here-and let anyone who does not have Facebook know that we-mommy and I-did a You Tube-thank you!!! I am putting the link right here. You just google this on You Tube and you will get to see my 'Thank You'.

I want to thank all who have been there for us-for me-because you mean so very much. I apologise for not being here more-Mommy finished her grad school in September, and has been preoccupied with all the intricacies of applying to take the exam she needs, re credentialing as a counselor, and in trying to be supportive of a childhood friend who has a brain tumor and her sister who is caring for her. She's also enjoying being home to take care of us, and enjoy being around us-and we so love having her means extra chicken for me!!!

Well, back to my bed, after a snack...please know I remain the Warrior Poet of Catster-thanks to all of you and your Magick....

together, furs, we can do anything....
love and light-

On Feral Cat Day-by Orange Ruffy

That Feral Once Was Me

We come in all colors
All different hues
All shapes and sizes
Some look like you

We live outside around you
We have families and friends
Some of us live alone, some do and then...

We find a nice feeder, someone who is kind
We only ask to be respected
But that can be hard to find
Some people don't like us
they don't understand our plight
Not easy being feral
But I only want to eat tonight

We're cats of many colors
We're community felines
We live across the world
And we'd really love a sign
That we're loved and appreciated
We have important jobs to do
Purring together when we're happy
Keeping rodents away from you.

We didn't choose this lifestyle
Somewhere we might have been put out
Some of us were born out here
Some maybe, there's no doubt
But we've all one thing in common
We're living outside for now
Can we be treated with compassion?
Doesn't seem to hard to allow

And we're yes, we're Ferals
We didn't ask for this
As I watch you open your front door
Wistfully, and kiss your own kits
We only ask for kindness,
A warm shelter, maybe good food
I hope you'll choose to see me
Not my scared and worried attitude

So, I , yes, a former feral
A big orange boy with tufted ears
Sends out my waves of magick
To touch the hearts of those out there
All folk who have the power
To change the world for good you see
Make a difference for the Ferals
Because that feral-once, was me.

Dear Folks of Furs-Trust that Miracles Occur. You are that Miracle!
What can you do?

Feed a feral....
Neuter a feral.....
provide a house for a feral....
Talk to people about Community cats and tell them about the good they do!

and if you're brave...take a chance and provide a home to the least of us, who may perhaps not be as 'feral' as you think.


Best party ever! Thank you River!

We had a blast, and I'm happy...even if I did wake up with a hangover...under your coffee table....
Mom musta had a fit. But there's so many young 'uns running around my house this was a welcome relief!

We were very happy to see many of our old catster friends. We really are pleading-please everyone, don't leave. We realize we been away too-it's been Mom's schedule but shes told me she will do whatever it takes for me and my sibs to get Catster time.

We've missed everyone, and last night was great! So when we doing it again?

love and light,


A Meeting with the Goddess...a Tribute to Miss Samoa McBoa

A long time ago, in a place far away
A tired little cat
sought a safe place to stay
His tangerine coat
Was dirty and coarse
He'd been traveling a long time
From beyond all source
He had once been a kitten, groomed by his mom
But those days were long gone
Now he must carry on

And there were hard time, an ancient world true
A place of dry desserts, the sky azure blue
But stone, sand and dry wind don't make for good nights
Hunger was the one friend who kept him tight

One day this cat, found a tree with some shade
"I'll rest but a moment' was the promise he made
And he fell deep asleep in the later afternoon
With the heat like a hunger-the chill to come soon
He woke with a start, sensed he wasn't alone
He gazed all around, all was dry as bone
the sun was at last beginning to set
But the mango tom tabby was anxious yet.
He gazed all around, kept low to the ground
Like all of his kind he made not a sound
Then flew in the air at the sound-of-a laugh!
'Hey you' it called in catspeak 'don't you need a bath!'
He gazed upward from where, he heard this fey voice
Then he saw her, all grace, as she leapt down, seemed to float
'You, hey you're a picture-well, you're no dreamboat
How do you come here, oh what a sight, cat,
You're coat's just a mess now, imagine that!'
He gazed at her tiredly and shook his big head
"I've wandered so long' is all that he said
But he sensed something was changing as she moved closer now
"I don't like my messengers to be sad, oh no thats not allowed!
She was a strange cat, tri colored and more-
She wore a a purple feather wrap that dragged on the floor
She moved slowly and lightly, and then again fast
"You're crossed the bridge from forever-and you're home at last...
You'll find who you're to guide-just follow this road
Stick to it old Mangocat or you'll turn into a toad-
But seriously, fellow, don't fear destiny-you've magick
Within you-I bestowed it, you see!!!
She touched noses to his, she purred deep and true
'You're made of magic-we all cats are too-
You're a Fetch, you're a Familar, you're a Special feline
For there's an M on your forehead that stands for 'Mine'
And you've a job now to do, my mellow yellow friend
Follow this path now, go on now-right to the end'

And the cat gazed at her, puzzled 'but who could you be?
He felt her purr rumble with laughter....'you'll see!'
She answered, leaping around, lovely eyes danced with fun
"I promise you sweet one-the journey's begun'

And he did as she said, sore pawed as he was
She danced there beside him, and waving that feathery fuzz
But she led him to water, and watched him drink
Said 'dinners ahead, closer than you could think...'

She left him at the first house, and he cried at the door
The heavy wood opened and he saw a stone floor
But he heard 'Oh goodness-well lets have you in'
Then he was held in soft embrace and asked 'where have you been?'

And he bought his folks luck, fame and renown
His name became legend, he was the talk of the town
But he never forgot that when he was forlorn
The Cat Goddess came to him in tri colored form

And ancient days passed-and we leap through lives
I glimpse her ahead, funny, jaunty and wise
Just a bit out of site, then meet moments and purr
She's the one who taught me 'trust miracles occur'

So don't shed a tear, that she's leapt back to the light
The Cat Goddess still dances, all's fine tonight
I watch her appear on the bookcase, with a low languid wink
Saying 'Oh I'm watching you my boy-I'm closer than you think!

And a bit of a feather tickles my nose....
The Cat Goddess laughing as she leaps on light toes
Up and out into evening that turns the sky rose
Painting the dessert for her mom-who senses- she knows.

....and the Cat Goddess Danced the Day you Were Born...
'I have been with you from the beginning, and I am that which is attained at the end of desire'

With much love, for Lady Samoa Mc. Boa and her mom and dad

love and light,
Irish Orange Ruffy


Light a Candle and Remember Me

September 26th 2013 5:30 am
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ]

Today a cat came to peer in a door
She was so tired, her white paws were sore
She had green eyes, a sad little face
A small soft furred kitty
Who lived in 'no place'
She once had a home, a bed all her own
But now she's a 'stray'
And she's not alone

Today light a candle
Remember me
I was once that shy cat
That each morning you see
Can you pass by, don't you see me at all?
Will I die alone out here
As summer turns to fall?

That little cat,
was sprayed with a hose,
shivering in the cold
she stood by them and rose
As a woman went to kick
Another leapt a fence
Told her 'leave them alone-or you'll be past tense'
The monster dropped the hose, the other knelt down
Soft voiceed and soft eyed,
She lay on the ground
She coaxed and cajoled, she opened a door
Gathering kits into her shirt
The mother cat followed the lure

Today light a candle
Remember those cats
That will die in a 'shelter'
Imagine that
Today can you reach out-do a little more
So a miracle in fur
will make it out of the door

The rag tag mom cat
Found safe haven that night
With her little kits
She saw the first light
Of kindness and love
Her kits were found homes
The little stray cat
She was no longer alone
She became Matriach here,
She's the reason We Are
Her name is Angel Bella
And she was A Star

Today light a candle
Remember me
A cat once alone
Don't you all see
It's up to all Folks,
To go out of their way
You can make a difference
Save a Fur today
For dear Folk friends
The idea isn't strange
If you want it to be different
You must be the change

And so I trot to the altar
Mom lights a candle you see
She can't hear the purr of
'You've remembered me'
But the cat in the picture-Bella by name
Is not really there, she's here just the same
She stands for a moment, close to us all
Remembered always-the first in from the cold
A legend, a hero
A cat that was bold

So light a candle-remember me
Save me from death row
From across eternity
Folks be the hero-how often the chance?
To scoop up and rescue-
and change circumstance!

And I turn and I purr
and I send out might light
To join with those candles
And light up-tonight.

Orange Ruffy
Warrior Poet of Catster

Dear Folks. Remembrance Thursday is here. Reach out, light a candle, share, save a life if you can, however you can.
Be The Change.


Happy Labor Day all!

Hello all,
Well, I was sort of in hot water last night. You see, I attacked Natalie as she was waddling up the little stepstool to the bed. She fought back valliantly, and we had a lovely little fur flying match! Mommy yelled at me and kicked us all out of the bedroom.
Natalie went to the vet on Saturday, but I will let her tell about that.

I start my heart medication today. I am now on Flagyl, ciproheptadine for appetite and the wonderful side effect is it helps my allergies, so sometimes Mommy gives it just for that. I get fluids every other day and today I start my heart medicine.

I got Daddy though! After he stuck me with that needle and tried to make me a water balloon, I went in and let loose alot of pee right next to his dresser. Daddy said he should have known when I went to the box, looked in, and walked past it.

He wasn't much mad. He has been too worried about me.
That said, I am much back to my old self-eating pretty well now, sleeping where I want, and once in awhile playing.

The attack on Natalie was not new-I've done it in the past once in awhile. Mommy worries it could 'mean something' but then Mommy always worries.

Mommy and Daddy will be going on a short trip this week, and I know it and I'm not liking it. But they made the arrangements some time ago and we are to have 'cat sitters' taking care of us, as well as "Auntie Deb' and her daughter in law-who both can give subq fluids and put water in us-which I wish they wouldn't but that I know they will.

Mommy is as usual worried-she dosen't like to leave us, even when it's people she knows, and daddy always tells her we will be fine-they will only be away less than a week, and our neighbor next door too will come in and love on us and brush us and feed us and give treats.

Our little foster kitten is still here with us-she sometimes eats from my plate with me, Mommy says it's because she see's me as a 'daddy figure' and I need to watch out for her. She's very active and on the go all the time, and is still up for adoption-she will go to another event when mommy and daddy get back.

And Mommy and I are still working on our project together....

hoping everycat is relaxing this wonderful holiday weekend!

love and light,
