October's Party
By: George Cooper

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came—
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.

The Chestnuts came in yellow,
The Oaks in crimson dressed;
The lovely Misses Maple
In scarlet looked their best;
All balanced to their partners,
And gaily fluttered by;
The sight was like a rainbow
New fallen from the sky.

Then, in the rustic hollow,
At hide-and-seek they played,
The party closed at sundown,
And everybody stayed.
Professor Wind played louder;
They flew along the ground;
And then the party ended
In jolly "hands around."

I am now five years old. At least my fur is coming back in and I once again look like a black cat and not a drowned rat or a gray/blue cat. Nothing wrong with being gray/blue, except when you are suppose to be black and your mom has stolen your fur!!

Mom gave us our treats tonite and I enjoyed them. They were chicken and salmon flavored All natural treats. YUM!!

I want to say Thank You to my friends who sent me Birthday wishes, pics, gifts and cakes. One cake was made with candy bars.
Amazing what they can do with Chocolates!!

You have all made my Day the Best Yet!! Thank you, you are all the Greatest!!

Hi Friends,
What a spring I have had. During the winter my fur developed matts. I did this a couple of years ago and Mom just clipped the matts. This year it was really bad, at least that is what Mom says.
She decided to clip my fur off. How humiliating!! I looked like a drowned rat. Donald and Dad laughed at me and I do believe I saw the guys giggle a time or two.

Mom and Mary Beth said I felt like velvet. That my fur was so soft and I have been getting a lot of petting. Cannot complain about that. It took Mom almost 2 weeks, to finally clip all of the fur that she was cutting. Why did it take so long? I would allow her so much time, then that was it. So she would clip and clip and then I would give her the signal that I was done and she would finish for the day. There were a few days that she did not have time to clip.

It may not be as neat as a groomer's, but I did not have to take a drive and to be honest, we are not sure where Mom would have to take us to be groomed. When you live in a rural area, those things are few and far between. Mom will hear about a groomer opening business, then after a short time, it is no longer there.

Well my fur is coming back in, I now look black again, no more gray or even blue at times. Mom told me that I would appreciate the short fur when the heat comes; then we ended up with cooler temps than usual!! MOL

Take it easy.

Tonite I just spent a wonderful evening with the lovely Jazzlyn Renee Tugwell. She is sweet and a lot of fun to be with. We have gone to dinner; dancing and tonite we just talked.
Jazzlyn is a natural when it comes to dancing. She is very graceful.
She amazes this old Bear!! MOL

My Christmas Wish For You

My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun

I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you've been given
To be more than what you sought

May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold

I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too ..

Happy Thanksgiving

We want to wish all of our Dear Friends a Very Happy Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving Delights

On Thanksgiving Day we’re thankful for
Our blessings all year through,
For family we dearly love,
For good friends, old and new.
For sun to light and warm our days,
For stars that glow at night,
For trees of green and skies of blue,
And puffy clouds of white.
We’re grateful for our eyes that see
The beauty all around,
For arms to hug, and legs to walk,
And ears to hear each sound.
The list of all we’re grateful for
Would fill a great big book;
Our thankful hearts find new delights
Everywhere we look!

Scaring Mom (Favorite Past Time)

A few nights ago mom was on the computer when she heard me doing something on the back of the loveseat. She looked over and thought she saw me playing with something that had a head. Mouse she thought, and came my way. Wings came up and then she feared that I had a bat. It took off flying and she finally saw (and started breathing again) that it was one of the huge tan moths (that are as beautiful as a butterfly). It was the same kind of moth that she and Socks had admired together, last year.

She grabbed her broom and tried to persuade it to go outside. She had turned off the lights, with only the deck light on. It kept wanting to go at her, landing on her shirt a few times. (She thinks Socks was teasing her.) It finally decided to go outside, then mom took pics of it. I will post one later. Thats entertainment in our home, priceless!!

I am to tell 7 things about myself and then tag 7 friends.

1. I am absolutely in love with my mom. When we are cuddling, I stare into her eyes (My Aunt Tina even said she could see how much I love my mom, when I look at her).

2. I climb where no cat is permitted to go (did I say that I love my mom???).

3. My underbelly fur matts like crazy. I do not like it when mom has to use the clippers to cut it off.

4. I like to wait until mom is cooking or doing dishes, then I demand cuddle time. (I may demand, does not mean I get it tho. Usually a quick hug.)

5. My backside is velcro. I bring in leaves and twigs. Mom says I am working on a tree of my own in the house.

6. I really don't want it to get out...sshhh..but I like cuddling with my little sis Lulu. Until she starts kneading on me, then I cry and mom moves her away from me.

7. I can both frustrate my mom and make her laugh at the same time. Now that takes talent!!

I am tagging the following friends:

1. Jake (465558)
2. Jackson (56526)
3. Weezer Jean Louise (804810)
4. Miss Dixie Monroe (396548)
5. Rowdy (473627)
6. Bella Bush
7. Fluffee Bush

I've been tagged to play the Thanksgiving Tag Game.

I will list 5 things I am thankful for and then list 5 kitties I have tagged.

1. My furever home. I was suppose to go to the neighbor's daughter's boyfriend, but after 5 weeks (meaning I was 12 weeks old) they finally showed up (no calls, nothing) and mom had me in her arms to hand me to her and she absolutely could not give me away. I am so loved!!!!!

2. I have plenty of food and am thankful for it, but I really am thankful when I get what Boss leaves uneaten. (Boss has not been eating for mom. It has to be smelly-like tuna- and he will eat it. The vet's not concerned yet, he did get a vit B/cordisone shot.) So mom's giving him a little canned food (for taurine benefit) and tuna. Boy is that good!!!!

3. The culvert just up the road from us. It makes for a great get-away to take a nap during dry weather. Rain can be a problem!!!

4. My mom who grooms me. I don't like it really, but if no one ever combed me I would be an awful mess. You would probably think you were seeing a pile of leaves and twigs with legs.

5. Pounce Treats. Oh, I know that's food. But oh they are so good!!!!

My furs are:

1. Jean Louise "Weezer" 804819
2. Bear 748637
3. Lilu 748441
4. Bijoux 609934
5. Mittens PAWS 497651

Oh my, my fur is getting so thick for this winter. We hope it doesn't mean a bad winter, just cold maybe. I am really poofing out with gray in my fur. They say I look like a rug on legs when I am walking. Mommie steam cleaned the carpet Tuesday and then it rained Wednesday. You should have seen the stuff sticking to my fur, I tracked it all in. She lays towels on the couch and love seat for us, they were not only dirty from the wet paws, but the leaves, twigs and burrs were nasty. I try my best to scrunch down really low in all this stuff and rub really good, so that I can bring all that I can at one time. Mommie doesn't know it , but we are competing to see who can bring the most of the outdoors, indoors with us. I think I am winning. Now, if mommie would just stop cleaning it all up then we could see who has brought the most inside.
