TRIBUTE TO PRECIOUS......FOR WHEN THEY LEAVE US.......

KITTY POEM POSTED IN THE PDPC APRIL GROUP MAGAZINE
Which also featured me as THE ANGEL OF THE MONTH.
My FURMILY IS SO HONORED AND WANTED TO SHARE THIS
WONDERFUL POEM WITH MY PALS. WE'D LIKE TO THANK
BAILEY FOR THE BEAUTIFUL PICTURE OF ME RULING FROM
MY ANGELIC THRONE. MY CATATARY HAS POSTED THE PICTURE.
SHE APOLOGIZES THAT IT HAS TAKEN HER SO LONG. SHE IS
STILL UNDER THE WEATHER FROM A SLIP,TWISTY THING...
WHERE SHE DIDN'T FALL AND MAYBE SHOULD HAVE??? SHE'S
FIGHTING WITH DAILY HEADACHES,NECK,SHOULDER,HIP AND
BACK PROBLEMS. GMA'S PAIN LEVEL IT PRETTY HIGH AND
IT IS MAKING HER DAYS VERY DIFFICULT. SHE IS USING
ALL THE TOOLS IN HER CHRONIC PAIN BOX TO TRY AND
SETTLE DOWN...


For When They Leave Us…
And God asked the feline spirit
“Are you ready to come home?”

“Oh, yes, quite so”, replied the precious soul.
“And as a cat, you know I am most able to decide anything for myself.”

“Are you coming then?” asked God
“Soon”, replied the whiskered angel.
“But I must come slowly
My human friends are troubled
For you see, they need me, quite certainly.”

“But don’t they understand?” asked God -
“That you’ll never leave them?”
“That your souls are intertwined, for all eternity,
That nothing is created or destroyed,
It just is . . . forever and ever and ever?”

“Eventually they will understand” replied the cat
“For I will “Whisper” in her heart – that I am always with her.
I just am . . . forever and ever and ever!

- Unknown

Grandma here...it is with sadness,we tell you that Precious has passed to the bridge.:(( This is hardest for Grandpa,as she was his lap baby. Mazy has been looking for her since yesterday. Grandpa looked for her but couldn't find her. She took her last prairie outings before she left us.


The past 3 days the temperatures were warmer. She was determined she would go outside and enjoy herself. Yesterday, she went outside and didn't return to the house. Grandpa found her this morning,she had went into his shop and the angels came for her.|/a/| She was elderly,as least 13. She will be missed. She was the best trained kitty,we've ever known and loved. She had a good home here after being dumped into the country.

Grandpa will build a coffin for her as our other furs. We will bury her in our pet cemetery when the ground thaws. Thank you for all the support and prayers. I'm sure she was happy to be able to enjoy going outside the last 3 days.

Grandma Keda and Mazy

 

FURRY UPSET!!!!!!!!!

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

HEY CATSTER PALS-I've been busy trying to cruise around
catster and dogster. Stop and visit with all the pals....
I'm FURRY UPSET! As the pages at dogster and catster in
groups,diaries and pictures are breaking UP! On top of
that things are running so slow...it takes forever to
stop at a couple places.....

There are only 27 days left until March 3rd. Since Gma
is recovering from a surgery.....I hoped, I'd get to
play too...Before we are NO MORE! I never did have
equal time,due to the 3 puppers. Gma just couldn't
keep up. Gpa the love of my life,can't turn a puter
on!

Anywho...back the major fleas around......We have no
issues visiting Dogster and Catster Friends,Petster
or Pets4Pals....The PC runs just FINE! This kitty
thinks this is very strange???? Are they taking our
beloved site apart,while we try to make the best
of the time we have left?????????????

So, I'm out here looking at stuffies,but many times
I can't comment! I'm hissing at the Puter but it
doesn't HELP! I have not jumped ship like a wet
rat!

Puuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrlllllleeeeaaasssseeeeeee KNOW that
each of you have brightened our lives! We hope, when
the dust settles...many of us will end up in a new
Fur Community. Finding our old pals and making new ones.

We Cherish All The Memories Made
We Love You All

BIG BREAK IN THE WEATHER.....

January 10th 2014 3:19 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ]

HEY PALS- HAVE I GOT BIG NEWS! WE SURVIVED THE LAST
ARCTIC BLAST THIS PAST WEEK WITH TEMPS AND WINDCHILL
OF -35 TO -60...My POOR Gpa out working in that mess!
The Moos have to eat! I did a very good job of
DEFROSTING HIM every break during the day. After
supper...I curled up on his lap and purred to
relax him. Snuggled and slept on his legs,while he
slept in the glider rocker. I kept him toasty,
until he would wake up and then go to the big bed.
I don't sleep there,cuz Gma says my hair makes
her nose itch....Then she gets the sneezies!
I really think, it is because Mazy doesn't want
to share the big bed with me! Bossy doxie! Who
does she think,she is?????????????

Sorry,I got side tracked....The wind changed to
the south on Thursday. The temps. rose to the
high 20's. The sun was shining but breezy...
Today, we had sunshine and 35 above! Oh My
Catness,I was in Heaven! I went outside 3 times.
I thumbed my paw at the barn kitties,since I'm
the Queen of the Ponderosa...Gma cooked a crockpot
of beef liver for them. Then chopped it up...
They love it, but so do I! They don't know, some was
left inside for ME! What they don't know doesn't
hurt them...

Neither Mazy and I like them looking inside our
house windows. This winter, they do it alot....
They have been keeping toasty in the milkhouse.
They are given warm milk,2x's per day,dry kibbles
and canned meat. Plus Gma cooks for that army
of outlaws.... They still hunt too...I hunt for
FUN, not for food. They also are gathered on
our patio every morning and every night....
waiting for Gpa! He's the chuckwagon! When the
sun is shining,they sit on hay piles and
enjoy themselves. OMC! I'm so glad I was
moved into Gma's house...After they knew I
didn't have any claws to fight with....Just
my toophers... The only other thing,I've been
doing is: I sleep alot! I'm a old kitty....
I like to get Mazy all excited and then I'm
done.....I hope you're all staying warm at
your housies.... See ya, whenever I can get here.
BTW-I put up a new picture.....Pretty COOL!

WHO SAID, I WANT TO SPOIL THE BARN KITTIES?????

January 2nd 2014 3:01 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

Here it is, 2nd. day of the new year. It was
-26 raw temp. at 7 a.m. Suppose to make 30 above
tomorrow for 1 day! Then back into the arctic deep
freeze for about 5 days. Plus snow,wind and all
that jazz! I hate these roller coaster ups and downs
in this year's weather.

Now my Major Beef with Gma is this: Yesterday, she
cook fresh venison for the barn kitties! Today she
cooked frozen beef liver in crock-pot. Then chopped
it up with the food processor!

Now, it is true that Mazy and I have been eating
roasted chicken and venison for our evening meatz
nibbles. We haven't missed out on our meatz! But
who said,"I WANT TO SPOIL THOSE BARN KITTIES?"
Some of them aren't very nice to me!

After the liver was chopped the stuff was scrubbed
up...Gma put the meatz in an ice cream pail for Gpa.
Well, she never gave Mazy and I a single bite! We like
LIVER very much!!! So, we had been tormented smelling
this pawsome meatz while she chopped it....Deserved a
reward for being so nice about the whole thing.Nothing
honey!

Then Gpa came home and Gma said, she could still smell
the stinky stuff in her nose. She cooks it in the cattle
room...to not smell it the whole time it is cooking!
Gpa understood as I followed on his heels....Even willing
to go into the sub-zero weather to get a bite!
He gave me a few nibbles in the cattle room. Then Mazy made
an ugly face and Gma gave her a few bites. So we did get
our taste..... Gotta know how to work these hoomans
and wrap them around your little paws!

This was my big event for the day...Fresh cooked,
warm,chopped liver!!!!!! Yummy! Took some major naps
and laid on freshly washed and dried comforters.....
Hid from the electric broom....I hate that thing!

CHRISTMAS SEASON

December 29th 2013 2:44 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

THANK YOU PALS FOR ALL THE PRETTY THINGS ON PAGE.
I managed to sneak in here today and take a look. I
shoved Mazy out of the office chair, so I can surf
Catster....As Gpa went outside to start evening
cattle chores. The football game was over, so then I
didn't have his lap to nap on. I hope to see what
everyone has been doing.

Anywho, I hope everyone had a pawtastic Christmas.
This kitty humbugs around Christmas just a little!
See, I don't like to play with toys. I have all the
kibbles and treats I want. Two clean litter boxes
and a Gpa to Spoil Me some more.... What I didn't
have this past week was Gpa's undivided attention
every single evening!

You see they were gone Monday,Wednesday and Thursday.
When he did come home, he was tired and didn't want
to hold me. He wanted to go to bed! Can you believe
it? We Always nap after supper in his chair.... I
know that they were with family on Monday and Wednesday.
Gma had medical on Thursday,but both Mazy and I,thought
it was just TOO much running around!

I'm not unhappy that all the whoopla is done! I really
don't like to share my Gpa very much! Bad enough, he
still has to work so hard everyday....spend so much
time out in the cold.

A major roller coaster with the weather. Monday it was
-30...Christmas Day is was 25 above,cold on Thursday
and 43 above on Friday. Saturday and Sunday major
sub-zero business again! It was -25 and -19 this morning.
that's raw temperatures not the windchill added in there.
Friday, Mazy and I were both outside awhile. I was
determined to go out today. The high was 4 and I lasted
less than 5 minutes. Oh well,such is Life when your and
Old Kitty Cat! Sleeping and Eating and Snuggling
are my pastimes....Just the way I like it!

Happy New Year Pals

SCURRIN' HERE AND THERE....

December 18th 2013 1:55 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ]

DECEMBER 11

Precious here reportin' in. As we draw to a close
on another year....My old people,Gma and Gpa are
scurryin' here and there...

Gma has been bakin' bakin' bakin' and our housie smells
so very invitin'. She also made some fudges,but wouldn't
share with us furs. I heard here say, she has more
cookies to bake,caramel corn to make.

The boxes were packed and Gpa did the postal honors
of descendin' on the Post Mistress. It's a shock
when 1 person has a huge stack of packages. This new
Mistress just doesn't have the Christmas Spirit
like our Mistress who retired. The old Mistress
loved it...She liked that, for Gma,Christmas is
about spreadin' joy..wherever you can.

Gpa has been out in some mighty bitter weather to
care for all our moos...The temps. have ranged from
-40 to 10 above since Thanksgiving. It was -23 raw
temp. this mornin'. Our peeps have to go to the capitol
city for medical appts. in this cold stuff. They had to
cancel last week,due to the snow storm.

Sure glad Mazy and I are on guard duty. Stayin' inside
all toasty and warm. Mazy and I have only been outside
a couple times since Tday. Just too cold for either of us.
Thank goodness for inside potties. I have my litter
box and Mazy has a pup potty station.

*************************************
DECEMBER 18TH.
OH MY CATNESS,FINALLY I'M BACK TO MY DIARY! A FULL
WEEK AFTER I CORNERED GMA TO BE MY CATATARY.....MY
old peeps just get slower and slower!

A break in the weather this past week. I think, tomorrow
the next cold front rolls through???? Anywho,I was able
to go outside for some fresh air the last 4 days.
Only because I go out by myself! Mazy, the little
wienie,isn't allowed out by herself....Today was
the nicest day of all! It made 40 above! I stayed out
a couple hours,catting around. Mostly I sleep and
eat and try to boss everyone around! The folks too!
I just don't understand why,everyone doesn't jump
to my beck and call,as they should????? Gpa co-operates
more than Gma. Gma seems to think, she is in charge
of the Ponderosa...We should all dance to her tune!
No going to happen with ME! I'm a CAT!!!!! I do, what
I want, when I want and not before...

Just in case,I don't get back here. I want to wish
all my fur pals a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY
NEW YEAR! Meowed by: Precious

November Already???????????????????

Prissy Precious Here...I'm too Busy to bother with
reporting our news! So I gave the JOB to that snoopy
hound Mazy! After all she has a secretary and I rarely
have a chance to steal Gma away!It's soooooooooooooo
EASY to trick this hound into doing what I want done!
BTW- when anyone mentions WORK around here,I RUN hide!
I am allergic to WORK! I'm into eating,sleeping,cuddling
and being totally spoiled by Gpa!!!!!!!!!

Mazy caught on to reportin' the news for this Fat,Sassy
Lazy Kitty Cat!!!!!!! She refused and then:
Guess what??????????Mazy and I both ran into a problem
with having a dogatary or catartary! Nobody told us,Gma
was planting a garden big enough to feed a whole county!
Nobody said, anything about freezing and canning said
garden....Or that, it would take from July to October
to do the whole job! This OLD lady is a crazy woman!


Plus the yardwork,mowing,flowers and such! This was before
the fall clean up started....You know cutting stuff back,
mowing stuff off and pulling vegetable plants...Then there
was the dumping flowerpots,washing the steel siding off
and scrubbing windows. Cleaning the garages....Then the
very very long boring job of cleaning up all the zillion
leaves...Scattered through our house yard and our ranch yard.
This took 8 times of raking everything! It's a very large
area for one old woman.......

On top of that....this year the Leaves stayed wet the
entire month of October! She raked in temps. of the 30's,
gray,cloudy,foggy,drizzles and no sunshine! It was an
awful job! I watched from the sunroom windows..After
about 6 times....Mazy wouldn't stay out there with her
either! Last Thursday,the 31st.,she parked the rake
for the 2013 year. She told Gpa she was done! She can
hardly go anymore!

She does still have to clean 4 more windows and spray
for nasty spiders! Clean the gas grill and store it.
Gpa has been fighting the weather too! Trying to move
the hay bales in for winter. 10" of rain from September
to October 31st. is unheard in south central North Dakota.
Gpa is struggling with his work too..When it turns November
the weather can change real fast,from fall to winter...
in the snap of a paw!We've had a skiff and a good dusting
of snow already...The BIG snowstorm that blew through the
Dakotas the 1st. weekend of October missed us by 25 miles!
We had 2.6" of rain.....Poor South Dakota was pounded
really badly! Some areas it was 4 feet deep! Lots of cattle
were lost down there.

The only other news, I can think of is: Gma threw a whole
turkey into the oven yesterday. Then she went off to her
massage and errands. Left us furs,tormented by the smell
of pawsome turkey floating through the house! Well, we
ALL had turkey for supper lat night....Some turkey gravy
too! It was delish! Gma made turkey salad sandwiches for
lunch today. She is going to make Gpa some turkey noodle
soup in a couple days. She refroze some for other meals.
We have 2 fall batches of little kitties......What a pain
all those barn kitties are! Well, at least I don't have to
share the house with them! This place is barely big enough
for Mazy and myself....Thank Catness,inside...Gpa is Mine
almost a 100% of the time. Mazy and Gma squeeze in there
once in awhile..Since Gma says, she is the Boss, I have
to tolerate that!!!!!!

Thanks for the beautiful dancing skeletons to pretty up my
page. I see, it's time to help Gma hussle up some supper
for everyone!Warm up some turkey for me......
Licks and Meows,Precious

MAZY'S REPORT FOR OUR FURMILY
Pirate Pals-The Ponderosa Pack of Angels Baby and Foxie,
Precious and myself,Amazing Grace want to Thank all our pals
who sent those Pawsome Pirate Flags to our pages. Huggies
and Kissies to All for Prettying Up Our Little Corner of
Dogster and Catster.

While ya'll were having Pawsome Fun with Pirate Day, I was
Pouting Away! The Old People left me here by myself,very
early in the morning....No one was around,Puppy Patrol
was Boring! Precious ran outside before they left...
Traitor CAT that she is,jumped Ship! I had NO ONE to keep
me company!

I couldn't surf and play with pals...cuz, that mean old Gma
always Plugs the Pull on the Puter! I had alot of really BAD
puppy thoughts about Gma that day....Until they returned
home....She looked a little puffy and pale. She wouldn't
pick me up and snuggle me!

She Had that Bad toopher Pulled...She wanted to just put
the few things away and sit down. She finally told me,
she didn't want to pick me up,cuz...she was afraid,I'd
bump her face.

She said, it wasn't a BAD experience,since they gave her
sleepy stuff. She slept through the whole thing! Took
over 3 hrs. for her face to thaw out... She took some
pain medicine and rested awhile. Then she got up and
made supper for us.

I remember, when they took my impacted baby canines out.
It were NOT FUN!!!!!!!! They put me to sleepy land too!
After I thought about that, I wasn't MAD at Gma for leaving
me home by myself!

After supper I crawled up on her lap and kept her toasty.
Gma only needed pain meds. for 1 day. Gpa slept in other
bedroom a couple nights. Didn't want to turn over and bump
her face.

On the UPSIDE: she had very little swelling,no bruising,
no problem opening her mouth...All her other toophers
stopped aching! She isn't so tired All the time now....
A 20 year crowned toopher doesn't leak and decay underneath
over night. Everyday the rest of her body is feeling a
little perkier! She's glad that is taken care of!!!!
Thank you for the prayers and positive thoughts......

A BIG PLUS FOR GMA: We've had 4.25" of rain in September.
So nice guy that Gpa is: went and pulled all the plants in
the garden for Gma. She can't have dirt in her nose or mouth,
it could affect her 2 weeks of healing. She finished her
antibiotics. Gma still has sweet potatoes,carrots and tomatoes
in the garden. Everything else is out! WE HAVEN'T HAD A FROST
YET!

WE Picked sticks, did big fall cleaning on cattle room. The
laundry all day Sunday,baked biscuits,zucchini bread and
paid bills. Today we did our Big house cleaning. Tomorrow
we have a big box of ripe tomatoes to make chili base and
pasta sauce. We had company 3 times this weekend and so I
had lots of extra Pats and Praises. Gma made a huge pot of
vegetable soup she has been eating for lunches. Most things
she can eat. The oral surgeon had a few things on a list to
stay away from. She does these weird salt swishies,several
times a day. Wednesday we are hoping to start washing the
windows and blinds. Gma made it to granddaughter's basketball
game. Kenzie won and scored 12 points. I'm going to start
a petition, cuz,puppies can't go to basketball games! I'm
such a Pawsome Cheering Squad! I am much better behaved
than many big people, who yell as the refs. all the Time!

It's now officially FALL so my people have to work a little
faster! So much outside work and so little time! Rain in
forecast....Phooey! cuz, the new carpet for the back outside
steps hasn't been done yet! Gpa has been fixing fence and
pounding posts with his bad shoulder. He hasn't started moving
hay bales yet. Next week, Gpa will have another barkday!!!!!
WowZer,2013 sure has zipped right by!

Kisses and Huggies, Mazy
