OK California & Arizona friends where were you yesterday 9/8/2011 when the lights went out! That's right at 3:30pm yesterday Mom & all of us were resting and all of a sudden power went out...oh no, now what! we waited and waited for the power to come back on, but it didn't..it was so hot and humid in our house, no air, no fans, no lights...but of course us cats have no problems with that we see everything....
Mom and Dad were listening to the battery operated radio to see what was going on and low & behold all of Southern California from Orange county to Baja, some of Mexico and even Yuma Arizona went dark...MOL
What a mess with everyone trying to get home, luckily Mom and Dad both were home so they didn't have to be out in the major traffic jam and traffic jam it was....people were trying to get home for hours, some ran out of gas and were stuck on the roads...it was a mess....this morning gas stations cars were lined up to get gas, something Mom hasn't seen since the 70's
Now this all happened because one person did something wrong in Arizona and it caused a ripple affect...we know this isn't as bad as hurricanes, floods and fires, but it sure was bad enough and my pawrents were saying how easy it would be for a terrorist to do this to the hole country and how powerless we all would be...not a good feeling....
It was so hard for Mom and Dad to sleep...back windows were open but no relief at all till finally after 10 hours the electricity came back on...
About 1.4 million were affected by this, thousands of $$$ lost because all businesses were closed and loss of food having to be thrown out...no flights leaving cause they couldn't check people...most businesses are open, schools & collages are not open, some traffic lights work and others don't so Mom had to be careful when she was out today....but most is back to normal!
It was a weird feeling, some people were partying out in the streets, dogs barking and total darkness...but none of us cats were affected by it, except we wanted our food....
So now we wonder do you think their will be a big baby & kitty boom cause the lights went out in Southern California...we hope not!
We were home when the lights went out...thank goodness!

When you have something particularly challenging to deal with, try to remind yourself...
You've got this moment...
You can choose to be happy or unhappy. You can choose what you think, what you say, and how you feel. You can choose to be hopeful.
You've got this day...
No matter what the weather is like, you can choose what kind of day it will be. You can choose your attitude about what you're facing...
You've got your life...
You can talk to yourself about what you need to do to honor your life, but if you don't turn those thoughts into actions,you're just playing games and giving in to whatever comes to mind.
You've got the power to make choices...
when you use this awesome gift in your best advantage, there is nothing you can't do.
This is my inspiration for the today....let's spread good around!

HONORING OUR ANGEL TALLULAH
One way for Mom to honor and remember our TALLULAH this month she asked a special sweet friends Mom to make a background for all of us to honor TALLULAH FOR HER FIRST ANNIVERSARY BEING AT THE RAINBOW BRIDGE! No matter had hard it is Mom wants to honor Tallulah.
Yes even Zeke and our doggie Milo has the same background and of course it is pink! And they say so what boys look good in pink too…
This whole month we honoring you Tallulah for your fight and bravery, you fought so hard for 13 months and you never once gave up not even in the end….
We honor you for being the best mascot for the breast cancer three day walk last year in San Francisco, you guided and helped Chai Latte’s Mom …what a good girl for showing her the beautiful butterfly while she was walking on her 3rd day….you will be their mascot again this year, we are so proud of you and the kitty Moms for walking and spreading the word about kitty breast cancer
We honor you for just being you, the sweet cute beautiful kitty our precious gift from God.
We honor you for watching over Xena when she had her surgery and made sure the lump was benign, if it weren’t for you teaching Mom that she needs to check us all the time for lumps she may have not found the lump when she did….you saved Xena and for that we honor you always…..
We honor you for helping others and we hope that one day there will be no girl kitties getting breast cancer.
We honor you for helping Mom spread the word about cancer, yes we want others to know that kitties get cancer not just breast cancer and we have made sure Moms know how important it is to check us kitties for lumps and get us to the vet ASAP it could save their lives.
We hope all of our friends will take a moment and remember our Tallulah how hard she fought and wanted to live, but God had other plans for her to help others in the fight to spread the word about breast cancer…she did not die in vain….she has saved lives!
TALLULAH OUR BEAUTIFUL GUARDIAN ANGEL WE HONOR YOU AND REMEMBER YOU EACH AND EVERY DAY! YOUR LOVE IS ALWAYS WITH US AND WE WILL ALWAYS LOVE AND MISS YOU….WE SEE THE BUTTERFLIES YOU SEND TO US.
LOVE TO YOU TALLULAH

Look we all have our pages decorated with butterflies and we are all honoring our ANGEL SISFUR TALLULAH! This month on the 22nd it would have been her 12th birthday Mom decided that we will all have different butterflies on our pages…
Next month will be a hard and sad month for us, it will be Tallulah’s first anniversary going to the rainbow bridge and we will continue to honor her with more butterflies…Tallulah is all about her butterfly garden in heaven and she let Mom know she was Ok with a beautiful white butterfly…how else can we honor her but with butterflies…
Reminding all of our friends that you still need to have your Mom check you for any lumps, you just never know, we found that out! Never assume it is nothing, we didn’t and it saved Xena….
Remember Tallulah’s kitty breast cancer awareness is all year around every year…to many kitties are getting breast cancer and other cancers and we need to make sure our pawrents check us….
So help us honor our Tallulah on the 22nd of this month by decorating your page with butterflies or having a graphic of a butterfly on your page….we hope you will do this!
Tallulah is sending all butterflies from heaven!
Love, hugs and angel kitty kisses

Hello to all of my friends Mom says we are back from our break or lets say we are trying! It has helped Mom feel better, but time will only tell if she can be here without feeling so sad, have her heart ache. Mom knows that she is not the only one that has a hard time after losing one of her babies, but she also has realized that she will never heal completely and their will always be a ache in her heart for our Tallulah! but we are here today and hopefully for many more!
Now up date on me, I am finally healed, my fur is growing back in slowly and to my unhappiness she is checking me all the time...
The fur above my eyes is slowly coming back in too so guess I am not stressed anymore, guess what I am relaxed, back in my special spot at the window in my bed, eating like I should plus more and even asking Mom to let me out in the mornings on my leash. When she is home and doesn't have to leave I am out there for a couple of hours until the sun comes out and it gets hot & muggy....
We thank all of our friends for all of the messages, gifts, your love and support....
Now to our surprise today when we read a pawmail from Big Harry and Pigeon we found out I am Cat of the Week in our group KCK....I am so honored and sure hope I live up to that honor...not sure what I need to do but guess we will find out and just have lots of fun...AFTER ALL GIRLS WANNA HAVE FUN! and that is what I want....fun!!!now that I am feeling better
We are send you our love and lots of hugs, we thank you for being our friends too!

Well my friends Mom told me to tell all of our friends she is sorry we have been MIA lately....she still needs more time to heal and of course she told me she has been so busy, but we are all fine.
I am doing better now, I am not hiding like I was, but my fur above my eyes especially my left side isn't growing back in yet and Mom is still a little worried cause she thinks it has more fur missing, but she is checking everyday. My incision is finally looking like it is all healed I now have some peach fuzz fur growing back in...soon you won't even know I had surgery.
I am hanging out in the bay window in my new bed finally, but still not spending time at night in Moms bed like I was, Mom is hoping I will come back in her bed, she says maybe it is too warm now for night hugs and sleeping next to her...
We just wanted to let you all know we are still here, just taking some down time for now will check in...Mom is doing better and so am I.
We think of all of you, we pray for all and know we all miss you, but Mom still needs time....hugs to you all
Tully I miss you my sweetheart, know that I dream of you.

Well my friends I finally got my stitches taken out on Tuesday. I am all healed now, but now I have peach fuzz on my belly...I just want to know when will my pretty long fur grow back in...
Dr. Kathy told Mom I look good and I am doing good too....the specialists doesn't feel there is any need for further treatment...hooray!!! but Mom needs to check my lymph node on the inside of my back left leg, she showed Mom how to check me...MOL they had me on my side and feeling me all over..I was not happy.
Then Mom questions her about the changes of this coming back and she said that it could come back that is why she has to keep checking me, but more than likely the my prognoses is good....
Mom also wanted to know why the fur above my eyes is very thin and I am getting bald now...Dr. Kathy said that it could be from me being stressed, reaction to something she isn't sure, so she told Mom to watch and see if it gets worse, if it does she has to take me back to see Dr. Kathy and she will take a scrapping of my skin and see what is going on....what is next Mom and I ask!!!
Well next is since Mom took me to the Vet I have been hiding under Moms Grandmas hutch all day, she has to get me out for dinner, in the morning I eat and then ask to go outside, stay out till Mom has to leave, she lets me in and then I go right back under the hutch....I am not hanging out in my bed at the front window like I normally do, and I am not sleeping in Moms room either...If it continues Mom is going to call Dr. Kathy...this is not normal for me, yes I like hanging out by myself, but hiding is not like me.
Mom thinks there is something going on with my skin and she needs to get me on medication, so maybe she will have to take me back in next week....MOL
Thank you all of my friends for all of the comments, gifts and encouraging words these last few weeks, Mom hasn't felt like being on the computer much and we are behind so we apologize to you all...she hopes she will get to them now...if we miss anyone know that we love you all, thank you for your support and love....

Hello my friends
I am doing better and better everyday, tomorrow I go to the Vet to see Dr. Kathy to get my stitches out and hopefully Mom will find out it there is anything else she needs to know about my benign tumor...cause Dr. Kathy sent the report to the onocologist and hopefully it will not be anything bad....Mom is always checking me and loving me...
Today Mom let me go outside the first time since I had my surgery and she even took off the collar. Oh I so enjoyed getting out, the air felt so good and the grass tasted so good...but Mom caught me licking my incision so in I had to go and get my collar back on...tomorrow it will be off I can't wait.
We are sorry we haven't been here, Mom was very busy and when she was home didn't even get on the computer for 3 days....bad Mom you see we missed my being DOTD again....
Thank you all for your messages and gifts...we are shocked that I was DDP again and we missed it....bad Mom...but Mom told me she needed the time to rest and relax, it has been so very stressful for her the last several weeks...Now she is only walking 2 clients dogs this week.
I am blessed to have my wonderpurr Mom, family and my wonderpurr friends here on catster....THANK YOU AGAIN!
