(posted on Cat Channel June 22, 2013) It is with tearful hearts that we announce to our CC friends that our sister Mallow crossed the Rainbow Bridge Friday, June 21, just before 9 p.m. Pacific time. As a handful of you know, at the beginning of June we learned that what everyone thought was a respiratory infection was actually a tumor at the very top of her ribcage where it was starting to cause her trouble eating, breathing and even walking. Mom & Dad decided long ago that if this happened to any of us they wouldn’t put us through radiation and chemo, so Mallow was treated with steroid shots, pills and some holistic stuff for her immune system as well. Our humans were keeping her hydrated, fed and loved and in fact she had seen the vet just that afternoon. She passed fearlessly across the Bridge from Mom’s arms, in her own time and on her own terms.

While helping Mallow through this challenge, we felt the need to keep her page a place where our sister (and the rest of us) could remain surrounded by the lively, positive energy that has always characterized her. Being your usual wonderful selves was the best support you could possibly give us, and we love and thank you all for it. – Mike, Evie & family

 

Oh no! How did THIS happen?

I can’t be at the Rainbow Bridge yet, I’m only just turned 8! Why, I’m the sassy attitude of my family, the Pointy Thumbtack on the Throne of Kings! I’m a founding member of the Hairballz Rainbow Riders biker club. I’m in a goin-places relationship with a hot tomcat! I’m the Mayor of a beachfront community and in the middle of plannin’ our Beer Can Boat Regatta. I’m … I’m …. I’m MALLOW!!

So bein’ Mallow, the first thing I did on arrivin’ at the Rainbow Bridge was ask to speak to Management. Well it turns out they weren’t none too thrilled with my early arrival, either. They’d been watchin’ me and countin’ on havin’ a few more years to formulate a Mallow Policy. Why, they weren’t even sure whose side I’m on yet. So they gave me a trainin’ halo and my pal Angel Gracie got me an awesome hot pink glow in the dark fuzzy steerin’ wheel cover for it and I got hooked up with a gleamin’ bright silver Angel Harley. If I have to be at the Bridge, I want to be stylin’!

Then I thought, who says I have to stay at the Bridge all the time? Not like I’m in denial about my state of being or anything, but who says I can’t follow through with my plans and spend time with my earth furriends too? Why, I’d just like to see someone try and stop me ….

 

O.J. and Mallow are "AOKAY",

(posted by Oscar Jon on Cat Channel July 23, 2013) join us July 30th for our big day! Quite frankly, O.J. has been doing hand-springs and cartwheels since Miss Mallow aka Angel Dame Mallow consented to be his bride. He's kind of a shy fellow, especially around the gurls and he's been in love with Mallow since he first laid eyes on her. She was standing beside her helicopter and looked so adventurous that he knew he wanted to know EVERTHING around this charming kitty that some call the "Whip." The first big trip they took to the Royal Gorge O.J. became besotted with her and from that day forward all he could think about was trying the knot. Somewhere on the zip line with their hearts flying along at about 1000 miles and hour and her eyes sparking brighter than the sun, the ole boy fell head over tail. Now he knew that she was very independent and would never give him the time of day if he let her in on his plans so early in the courtship but he was able to get a small kiss or two by campfire that trip. Needless to say, by the time they went to their first moon pawty, Mallow and O.J. were becoming an item. Courtship was in the air and O.J. was telling Mallow she was the heart of his heart. About the time O.J. thought his heart would burst, Mallow would kiss him on the cheek and run off to jump off a cliff, fly the royal jet or simply have a few days with the girls. She lead him on a merry chase and never let him know for sure that she was as interested in him as he was in her...until...the day before she crossed the rainbow bridge. O.J. almost popped the question -- & since he didn't have the nerve that day, all she could do was tell him the answer would be "yes" when he did. O.J. was beside himself at her crossing; heartbroken with such little hope. And then, he found the best news of all time. Mallow as going to spend most of her "Angel" time right here on CC hanging out with her friends and her "best" guy. It was with courage and the knowledge that she truly loved him and he truly loved her that he FINALLY sprang the question he had wanted to ask from the very first day; "Miss Mallow, heart of my heart, love of my life and forever into eternity, will you marry me?" The answer was "Yes" and plans were quickly made to tie the knot on July 30th at the castle with her beloved K. Mike and sister-in-law Q. Dolly officiating. Folks, it's going to be the fairy tail beginning of a long and happy meowmarriage and each of you is invited to the wedding. Come to celebrate with her and me as we become one! "Thank you K. Mike for granting me the hand of your lovely fur-sister. I promise to always cherish her, have her back in anything & everything that she might get into and to love her beyond all reason." O.J.
Come visit me, Oscar Jon & Mallow; lovin' each other furrever.

 

The Icing on the Wedding Cake

** Sir Oscar Jon had the wild & crazy idea for us to get married the day he received his Cat of the Day badge, and I was very touched when my handsome groom presented his brand-new badge to me in honour of our love that spans across the Rainbow Bridge.

Thanks to all the wonderful kitties who came to celebrate with us, the next morning our wedding page ended up in the Cat of the Day window! We were both honoured beyond words! **

 

Wedding of Sir Oscar Jon and Angel Dame Mallow, July 30 2013- - The Vows:

December 30th 2013 11:40 am
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ]

Queen Lady Dolly begins. “We are gathered here today to honour Sir Oscar Jon and Angel Dame Mallow as they follow where their hearts were leading before Angel Mallow’s far too early crossing of the Rainbow Bridge.”

K. Mike then addresses the couple: “A wedding is the celebration of the miracle of love, which knows no boundaries and can overcome all obstacles. You have demonstrated this miracle to all of us and today we gather to celebrate it with you, and to witness the vows you make to each other.”

A smiling but nervous Oscar Jon turns to Mallow and says: “I, Oscar Jon, being completely smitten with everlasting love for my Mallow do hereby present my vows: I honor your name, honor your memories, honor the memories we will make together and help you keep those memories in the treasure house of our hearts. I will protect you and your good name with everything that is in me. I will give you encouragement to be what you want to be. I will cheer when you win and support you when you fail. Above all, I will be with you every step in life and in spirit. I will love and cherish you Mallow, all the days of my life as our spirits knit together to become one, and when I join you in spirit I will love and cherish you throughout eternity.”

With eyes glistening Angel Mallow replies: “I choose you Oscar Jon to be no other than yourself. I promise to listen to you and learn from you, to support you and accept your support. I will celebrate your triumphs and mourn your losses as though they were my own. There is little to say that you haven’t already heard, and little to give that is not already freely given. Before you asked me, I was yours and I am devoted to you as my soul mate and my one true love. I will trust you and respect you, laugh with you and cry with you, loving you faithfully through good times and bad. From this day and forever I give you my hand, my heart, and my love.”

Now the couple turns toward Queen Lady Dolly, who calls for the rings. At her direction first Oscar Jon and then Angel Mallow place the rings on one another’s paws declaring: “Today, we are no longer two. We are one, bound together with these vows and rings given freely and in good faith. You are mine and I am yours.”

K. Mike steps forward again: “Angel Dame Mallow and Sir Oscar Jon, in accordance with the traditions of CC and of the Feline Empire I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may seal your vows with a kiss.”

 

It's Fruitcake Toss Day!

January 3rd 2014 10:20 am
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

As some of you may remember, I have been known on Cat Channel for my seasonal specialty treat, Liver Fruitcake. And as some of you may also remember I made WAY too many last year and so inaugurated the First Annual CC Fruitcake Toss Day. This year, by special request from my brother Mike who is still uncovering candied cherries in his garden, we will be celebrating on the grounds of my cabin. Just watch you don’t get any in the river. The EPA is still studyin’ the stuff, you know.

So… how DO you toss a fruitcake? We got creative last year, so let’s get our thinking caps on again. We have big long skinny fruitcakes so we can toss them like Scotsmen tossin’ the caber. Or we can shot-put them. I have round ones that we can throw like baseballs. Football shaped ones for you fans of the gridiron (Way to go Spartans!). Those who are playing in the MHL Snowball Classic tonight might want to practice with these fruitcake hockey pucks I made.

Why, I even made fruitcake cookies in the shape of horseshoes, dice, and other tossable objects. Why cookies, you ask? Why, because I still have some of those lovely T-Shirts reading “I tossed my cookies on Fruitcake Toss Day”. If you missed out on those last year, YOU are in luck now!! Limber up, Catster kitties, and those who have catapults, bring them! Anything goes on Fruitcake Toss Day …

 

We won Bronze!

A group of us kitties have been making the most of the last days of Cat Channel by participating in the Olympics. We formed curling teams and would you believe all three kitty teams won medals?

Team Mallow represented Sweden and consisted of myself and friends Kieara, Gracie Twinkletoes and Kiska. We got beaten out for the Gold game by Team Mike (made up of our brothers, talk about sibling rivalry!) and Team Steve, but we had a real blast anyway. I think I'm gonna go walk around Sochi for a while now, wearin' my medal. Form an orderly line, no autographs, please.

 

It’s Inconvenience Yourself Day!

[ Leave A Comment ]

In order to celebrate, last night I put my alarm clock in the bathroom and locked the door. When it went off this morning not only did I have to pick the lock with a knitting needle (which I had to find first, it’s not like I knit or anything!) to get to the (ahem!) facilities, the stupid alarm was playing “Who Let the Dogs Out? Woof, woof woof woof woof!” full blast the whole time!

Right now I’m unthawing my Harley key, which I froze in a block of ice last night before retiring. I wonder if I’ll make it through the Hairballz rides because I just finished siphoning about 4 gallons of gas from my 5 gallon tank. Yuck! Ptoooie! And of course, just for today I won’t be carrying either a jerry can OR my wallet with me! Do I know how to celebrate or what?!

Then I’ll finish out the day at home watching the Olympics! Of course, because it’s Inconvenience Yourself Day, last night I asked Evie to hide the remote so every time I want to flip the channel I have to get up and do it the cavecat way! I will then finish out this very special day by climbing into my cozy soft bed, which of course I inconveniently short-sheeted when I made it this morning.

How are YOU going to celebrate?

 

Why My Humans Don't Replace Their FUR-niture Very Often

March 16th 2014 12:59 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ]

Some strange stuff went on here the other night and bein’ an Angel I was the only kitty who got to see it all. Here's what happened:

See, Mom & Dad had this ratty old couch they got at Value Village not realizing how gigantic it was. It took such a performance to get it into the house that they hung onto the thing after the springs started to go and Evie had scratched one of the arm rests down to the wood. They just kept saying "imagine ever trying to get it out of here".

Now, last week a friend who is moving offered to give them a used couch that's much better than the one they have and finally they had to do it. Big Bro Will & Becky's ex were going to get it Saturday, but then Friday night right after Mouse Hockey Becky's ex phoned to say that it would be better for him to get it now. So while he was on his way with his truck, Mom & Dad put the earth kitties in their rooms and Mom & Big Bro Will tried to get the old couch out of the house. The only possible way to do this involved stairs.

They got it down the stairs and when Becky’s ex arrived they had the monster couch standing on end at the bottom of the stairs figuring angles to get it around the bannister & out the door (and the thing on end is taller than the doorway, which is another story altogether). While the three of them were figuring, Dad (a man of action if not forethought!) went in the back room, grabbed the circular saw and started sawing away at the exposed underside.

Mom told him it wouldn't work. It didn't work. Then he got the jigsaw. Mom told him he'd break the blade. He broke the blade. Meanwhile the guys figured out what they needed to do and jockeyed the thing back UP the stairs to turn it around, and it worked. While they were gone picking up the new couch, Mom had to vacuum up all the sawdust .. along with the regular dust.

Mom & Dad just left the earth kitties in their rooms the whole time so they didn’t have to round them up again when the guys got back with the new couch. When the guys did get back, (the new couch is a sofa bed, I hafta add here), they got it off the truck and were about to take it through the front door. Mom was just opening her mouth to say "maybe you should turn it so the back rest is the lowest point rather than the highest because of the ..." and then CLANK! The bed started to unfold. They were saved from royal stuckness by the fact that they were moving the couch with slip cover still on and the slip cover slowed the bed part down enough that they caught it before it could unfold all the way.

So then the slip cover had to come off and they decided to go around the house and through the back sliding door. But when they tipped the couch to get through the doorway between the kitchen and the living room (the one the monster couch would no way fit through), the bed started to unfold again but they caught it when they first saw movement and all was well. The good news in all this is, if the pawrents ever have to unfold the bed the mechanism seems pretty smooth, not like those nasty ones you get a hernia trying to pull out.

Mom spent the next 45 minutes or so trying to figure out how to get the slip cover back on. And finally Mike, Evie & Mojo got to come out of their rooms. They went crazy sniffing all over the new couch, and all the spots where the old one was dragged, and all the spots where stuff was moved to make room while it was coming in ... well, Mike & Mojo sniffed around forever while Evie cuddled up on the new couch with Big Bro Will happy as anything. All is well now, both Mike & Evie have given it their seal of approval. Mojo remains suspicious. =^00^=

 

It's the first day of spring and I'm Diary of the Day!

Well, yesterday was, so the calendar says, anyway. We love our friends in the East and we’ve got just the thing to cheer them up, we’re gonna sing to you! Ignoring the cries of “No! Anything but that!” Mallow blows a note on her pitch pipe and leads on:

“♫ Welcome sweet springtime, we greet thee in mittens,
Parkas and mukluks, shoveling our driveways ….
Dodging the hailstones and lightning we goooo
While far as the eye can see ...

♫ Gusty and near freezing breezes are blowing,
While cross the driveway the garbage can’s blowing
Ah, how my skin sprouts with goose bumps anew,
As gray skies and snowflakes again meet my view.

♫ Sing then, to Spring, raise your voices on hiiiiigh;
Watch out for that tree limb, gracefully falling.
Calendar says it and calendars don’t liiiii-e.
Some day this slush will melt! ♫

Thanks for making me Diary of the Day today!
