Thankful Thursday: Coloring Book & Gemstone Bracelet Won On Basil's Blog!

Hi all!! Today we I am excited to show you the prizes we won from our dear furiends at Basil's Blog. and decided to feature it on our buddy Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

They have a special feature on Mondays which I greatly enjoy called COLOURING WITH CATS where a different Mandala is featured that Basil's human has colored.
Used without permission lol
from Basil's Blog
but we don't think they will mind


For those who may not know, the meaning of Mandala:  a Sanskrit word, is circle and like a circle, the mandala represents wholeness. A circle also denotes balance, perfection and eternity as the distance from its center to all points on it remains the same, from wherever it is measured.

Every Monday Basil's human features another Mandala and exercises to help keep us calm. (If only that worked for me! lol). 

So, back on February 6th,  there was a contest on Basil's blog  which was open world-wide! Here is what was being given away, and here is what I won!


I was so excited to win this book because I have been doing quite a bit of coloring lately, and what is so unique about  it is that it also has Wordsearch puzzles (which I adore!!!)


I started coloring this page, but didn't finish because there is soooooooooo much detail! It was NOT relaxing lol, but the Word Search was fun!

My FAVORITE part of these prizes though was this GORGEOUS semi-precious gemstone bracelet that was DESIGNED and MADE by Basil's human!!! That makes it EXTRA SPECIAL  and it is something that I will always cherish.


Isn't it beautiful!!!??? I was meant to win it I think because the colors of the bracelet and the bag PURRFECTLY match a blanket that I have that I used as the backdrop for this photo.

Each bracelet that Basil's human makes  is unique and full of healing energies from the large amethysts in  her crystal room.  What I particularly love, is I have a rather thick wrist and many bracelets don't fit me, but this bracelet doesn't have a clasp and stretches to fit any wrist! I just LOVE IT!!!

I am sending  a HUGE thank you to Basil's human for these wonderful prizes that came all the way from the UK!!! THANK YOU!!!

A Most "Precious" Message In Honor Of Pet Poison Prevention Awareness Month

FROM CAT CHAT WITH CAREN AND CODY: As we approach the end of Poison Prevention Awareness Month, (which frankly should be EVERY month) we would like to repeat a post that we did back on April 17, 2010, when we were brand spanking new to the world of blogging. 

It is one thing to write about the perils of certain toxins after searching on the internet, it is another thing ENTIRELY  to have an email sent to you, begging and pleading to share a little boys' heart-breaking story. It was this little boy, (Zack Flewelling),  (who is now a man), who begged his Dad to contact me. This post is a TRUE STORY, and addresses how hazardous houseplants and flowers can be to our feline friends. When one hears a story that impacted someone else, it brings it that much closer and takes on an entirely different meaning.

 I had been contacted by Zack's Dad in April of 2010 asking me if I would share his "message", I was  happy to do that  then and am happy to do that now.

 After I first posted this in 2010, I posted it again in 2015. It is now going to be a yearly tradition. I am sure when Zack sees this post repeated, he will be thankful that this special message from his cat "Precious" lives on.

(This year I added an infographic from SheKnows )


Zack and "Precious"
It is hard enough to lose a pet when it passes of old age, it is another thing entirely to have your pet die suddenly at the still vital age of 7, which is how old Zack Flewelling's cat "Precious" was when she died suddenly just a few weeks ago.

Zack Flewelling, age 12, possesses a caring and sensitivity at his young age that many much older than he will ever attain.

Back track to approx. April 11th when Zack's Dad, Jerry was relaxing at home, while his wife (Jennifer), and kids ran to the store.  He noticed Precious meowing more than usual, not in a "feed me" kind of way, it was more like a "low growling". When Jerry went to scoop her up "she was like water, there was nothing to her, she was totally limp and very cold but aware."

They rushed her to the vet where they discovered that Precious was in renal failure. The vet also wanted to know if Precious had gotten into any rat poisoning or "was there anything else she could have ingested"?

When the doctor left the room Jennifer's eyes spotted a bulletin board with a sign that said "DANGER! Easter Lilies are toxic to cats and dogs" Her heart sunk. They had had an Easter Lily plant on their table for a week now which they had paid no mind because Precious ate the houseplants "all of the time". Jennifer called Jerry at home and had him photograph the Easter Lily with his cell phone. Sure enough, many leaves were gone and there were teeth marks in them, Precious had "eaten it, and a lot of it".

The Flewellings and the vet tried everything, but there was nothing that could save Precious, she passed early the following morning.

When I spoke to Zack who is devastated by the loss of his dear "Precious", there was no hint of anger, just a young man with a thoughtfulness and depth beyond his years. When I asked Zack what the message was that he wanted to relay about Precious, he said, "I want an article to be put in the paper to let people know that plants do not come with "warnings" like other dangerous things do", he continued, "there are many poisonous plants out there, Easter Lilies and tomato plants", just to name a few.

Zack is right, there are literally hundreds of plants that are poisonous to both cats and dogs, and on most lists these plants are not identified by a photo, which makes it that much harder to know which plants are safe and which are not.

Infographic From SheKnows


Zack said that "his mission now is to spread the word to other cat owners (and dog owners as well) that plants should come with a warning", (as well they should, or they can be researched online or  at the library or bookstores, to find out if they are toxic to animals). Zack would "love to spare anyone else the pain" that he is experiencing after having lost his beloved cat, Precious,  by making them aware that toxic plants exist and to keep them away from cats and dogs.

Zack's cat may have been named "Precious" but Zack, with his unselfishness and caring for others, by wanting this message relayed for the safety of their pets, is quite "Precious" himself.

Sara's Tale a Guest Post By Linda Zwick

FROM CAT CHAT WITH CAREN AND CODY: Today we are pleased to present to you a guest post by a dear friend of mine (we have known each other since High School) who is like the rest of us, insanely in love with cats! She is deeply involved with helping ferals. This is a post she wrote, about some friends of hers in Ohio who are dedicated (as MANY of you are) to helping ferals. 

Sara's Tale

For some, winning the lottery or landing that dream job is the pinnacle of success. But for a select group of furry friends, it’s making the acquaintance of Stephen & Sara Schneider, the canine/feline benefactors of Canyon Lakes.
This sweetie is available for adoption!!


Although Steve & Sara are involved in challenging careers, their mutual love of animals always holds a special place in their hearts and home. For Sara, this started with her first rescue, a handsome cool cat named Champ. They shared 12 wonderful years together. Losing Champ was very difficult, although it made Sara & Steve realize how important animals are in their lives. Fortunately, Canyon Lakes provided the perfect opportunity to indulge in this interest. Apparently, their yard is a way station for kitties, and word soon spread that this oasis had vacancies! In the short time they’ve lived here, they’ve helped out at over a half dozen feline residents! In addition to two heated outdoor cat homes, food water, and medical care await these lucky visitors. Sara also has a Havahart trap at the ready for her work with the TNR program. More about that later.



Representing the canine brigade are Pearl and Dash, 2 gorgeous Portuguese Water Dogs. Pearl can proudly boast of parentage invited to Westminster, and she’ll gladly show you the wall of fame displaying her varied accomplishments! While she’s a certified therapy dog, she also has the unique ability to detect cancer through her amazing sense of smell. Sara hopes to do further research on this.
Dash lucked into his forever home with the Schneiders through a special rescue club for his breed. While there are lengthy waiting lists for adoption, Dash’s dire circumstances required a special heroine to come along, and obviously Sara fit the bill! Dash was given a warm welcome by all, and hasn’t looked back since.



While Clevelanders may be familiar with Geauga Humane Society, the TNR program may not be as well known. “Trap, Neuter & Release” provides an effective approach to reduce our burgeoning feral cat population. Steve & Sara have many success stories, “Jon Snow”, “Amy” & “Montego” to name a few. Some of their charges made the transition indoors, some just stop by for an occasional visit. There are currently 4 lodgers, but that number could change anytime! As amazing as their efforts are, the Schneiders have even bigger plans down the road. Someday they hope to start a foundation named after their beloved kitty “Champ”.



In the meantime, Sara has a few helpful tips for any neighbors wishing to help. If you see a kitty wandering by, look for the universal sign of an already neutered feral, the “tipped”, or slightly cut left ear. If this isn’t evident, try not to scare her/him off by chasing or reaching out too aggressively. Leaving food out (but not at night) can lure the animal in and set up a future possibility for TNR intervention. Also as adorable as tiny kittens are, try to resist the temptation to whisk them away, chances are mom and fellow litter mates are in need of rescuing as well!

Book Review: "Plan Cee" by Hilary Grossman is "Chick Lit" at It's Finest!

FROM CAT CHAT WITH CAREN AND CODY: I have the pleasure of knowing author Hilary Grossman through her blog, Feeling Beachie,  and I have had the HONOR of meeting Hilary in person.  Hilary's personality is warm, welcoming, funny, quirky, and many of those characteristics are evident in a number of her characters in her books. I am sure you will love her as much as so many of us do!




Would you abandon your present for a second chance at your past?

Cecelia Reynolds has spent most of her life trying to forget the commitment-phobic man who broke her heart. It wasn’t easy, but eventually she did it, or so she thought…

As Cecelia and her husband gather for a friend’s wedding, her perfect world is thrown into complete turmoil. Even though it’s been twenty years since she last laid eyes on Keith Emerson, all it takes is one glance for her to feel emotions she thought were long gone. When Keith ends up officiating the ceremony, she quickly realizes his message of love is directed at her, not the happy couple. But can she believe him?

We live our entire lives thinking we know ourselves. But do we ever really?

As secrets and lies cause Cecelia’s world to spin completely out of control, she is forced to seek advice from the most unlikely ally. In the process, she must confront the demons of her past and the events that shaped her into the woman she is now. Will she finally learn the real meaning of love, friendship, and family?





INTRIGUED?
OF COURSE YOU ARE!!

The first full day of Spring is today and it is time to start thinking about the books you will put into your beach bag, or take along on vacation to read on the plane or poolside. Not vacationing? Don't have a pool or a beach? Neither do I, but I bet you have a comfy chair or sofa and some goodies you can munch on while you kick back, probably with a cat (or two or three) by your side, and enter Cecelia's world. Hang on my friends, it's going to be a wild ride!!

I found myself saying "Noooo!!!" OUT LOUD NO LESS, at the mess Cecelia had gotten herself into. Because I have the pleasure of knowing Hilary Grossman in real life, I messaged her on Facebook, literally screaming.  I can't say why I was screaming or I will give everything away!!

I had the distinct honor/pleasure of reviewing both of author Hilary Grossman's previous books, (the most recent of which was Plan Bea. if you haven't read either of Hilary's previous books,  you MUST!!)  Hilary's writing is like chatting with a dear friend, or being nosy and peeking into their lives! 

"CHICK LIT" AT IT'S FINEST!!

 Plan Cee, as well as Hilary Grossman's previous books, have all of the necessary components of books that are classified as "Chick Lit." 

*****The really good chick lit books are by authors who haven't forgotten that lit stands for literature, and they manage to create complex stories with subtle characters and universal themes. And - here's the truly difficult part - they do so while employing the conventions that chick lit readers have come to love and expect.

Intriguing characters who are believable, and easy to relate to, plot twists and turns (that will have ANYONE who has had a past relationship thinking of THEIR past and what would happen should that individual re-enter the scene), Plan Cee is CHICK LIT AT IT'S FINEST.  Have you ever read a book that you started to read more slowly because you did NOT want it to end? For me, this was one of those books. I did NOT want it to end, and when it did, I reached out to Hilary and told her there HAS to be more.........

Fingers crossed there will be!!


While this book is a sequel to Plan Bea, it also reads as a standalone.




About Hilary:

By day, Hilary Grossman works in the booze biz. By night she hangs out with her "characters." She has an unhealthy addiction to denim and high heel shoes. She's been known to walk into walls and fall up stairs. She only eats spicy foods and is obsessed with her cat, Lucy. She loves to find humor in everyday life. She likens life to a game of dodge ball - she tries to keep many balls in the air before they smack her in the face. She lives on Long Island.

Cat and Human Wear Hats for Causes: Blue Bobble Hat and the Pussyhat Project!

Hi all it's Cody!! If there is anything that Mom loves, (keep in mind I said "if there is anything MOM loves), it's HATS! Mom LOVES HATS! In the winter Mom wears a hat nearly every day (inside AND out!!) Mom has loved hats since she was a little girl. She has tons of hats! Of things that Mom collects fashion-wise (and I use the term "fashion" loosely), Mom collects hats, tennis shoes, reading glasses and sunglasses. (Yeah, she's a strange one but you probably already knew that!)

Unfortunately, Mom thinks that because SHE loves hats that I do too. WRONG! I don't! But....when I heard that my furiends over at Basil's Blog were having a blogging tour to raise funds for kitties in need. I had to purrticipate.

The money raised will help kitties at the Burton Joyce Cat Rescue (where most of the kitties at Basil's came from), I told Mom I would be more than happy to purrticipate. You can read the details on Basil's blog right here.

I received my hat from my furiends over at Timmy Tomcat and Mom was chomping at the bit to put it on me.....oh was she excited!! Me? Not so much, but if it helps kitties, then I am all for it!

FROM BASIL'S BLOG: WE'RE RAISING FUNDS BECAUSE IT IS A DONATION DRIVEN RESCUE AND WE LIKE TO HELP WHERE WE CAN.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO SEND A DONATION,

or if you want to be a 
part of the tour
 PURRLEASE CONTACT US AT:

deardrbasil @ gmail . com

And if you live within the Nottinghamshire borders purrlease consider having a look at the cats they have up fur adoption, and aftur meeting us who wouldn't want to adopt a beautiful kitty from there! MOL

'ADOPT DON'T SHOP'


ALL MEW NEED TO DO, IS FEATURE THE BOBBLE HAT* ON YOUR BLOG AND THEN SEND IT ON TO ANOTHER WILLING PURRTICIPCANT.  THE MORE BLOGGERS WHO FEATURE THE HAT THE MORE MONEY WE RAISE FUR THE KITTY RESCUE.






We will be sending the Bobble Hat on to the next kitties on the tour by the end of next week! Hang tight!!!

Now, because I had to wear a hat, Mom decided that she would join me. The next hat is the infamous

PUSSYHAT PROJECT
GLOBAL OUTREACH

The Pussyhat Project was about making a powerful visual statement at the January 21, 2017, 
Women’s March on Washington, D.C.  But there’s a whole lot more to this. At its core, this project is about:

1. Creating a concrete, accessible, thoughtful way for those who cannot attend activism events in person to be heard and represented

2. Developing meaningful, respectful connections among people who care about women’s rights, and

3. Creating a framework for community and personal agency from the local to the national level.

And we have just begun to achieve these goals. Because of the hundreds of thousands of people involved in the Pussyhat Project so far, the Pussyhat has grown into a symbol of support and solidarity for women’s rights around the globe.

HOW CAN YOU TAKE PART?
LEARN SOME WAYS
BY CLICKING HERE

Mom wanted to get involved and desperately wanted a Pussyhat to show her support but: 1) Mom can't knit to save her life 2) Mom had no clue where to go to get a hat. Thankfully that dilemma was short-lived! Mom and I were reading our friend Ducky's blog and saw that Ducky's Mama was making Pink Pussyhats!!! Mom immediately contacted her and asked what she had to do to get one. All Mom had to do (that she would do ANYWAY), is make a donation to Planned Parenthood, and then Ducky's Mom would make her a hat and send it to her!! Mom was thrilled!! Here is Mom in her Pussyhat!

Mom rarely lets anyone see her
with no makeup
and she was too lazy to put it on
Hence the sunglasses!

Mom would like to give a HUGE thank you to Ducky and his Mama for this most pawesome hat!!! Mom and I LOVE it!!!

National Pi Day & Albert Einstein's Birthday:My Life with Albert Einstein

Hi my furiends! It's Cody and today is a pretty cool day! Today is National PI Day

FROM NATIONAL DAY CALENDAR:The 3rd month and the 14th day of the year is a consistent day to celebrate the mathematical constant π. Also known as pi, the first three and most recognized digits are 3.14.  National Pi Day is celebrated by pi enthusiasts and pie lovers alike!

Today happens to also be Albert Einstein's Birthday

FROM BIOGRAPHY.COM: One of science's greatest minds of all time, Albert Einstein, was born on March 14, 1879, at his family's home in Ulm, Germany. He shares his birthday with Pi Day, a celebration of this special never-ending number. Einstein's life in science started early, with him writing his first scientific paper when he was only a teenager. In 1905, Einstein published several influential works, tackling such topics as relativity and introducing his most famous equation on mass and energy  E=mc2. And, in 1921, he earned the Nobel Prize in physics.

DID YOU KNOW I LIVE WITH ALBERT EINSTEIN?

Say It Isn't So: Daylight Saving Time




I'm tired.

I'm feeling out-of-sorts, cranky and off schedule (yep even being unemployed I DO have a schedule thank you very much!).


I'm TIRED!

I can't concentrate.

I'm T-I-R-E-D!!

Many of us in the U.S. and Canada follow Daylight Saving Time. It was bad enough when the clocks were turned ahead an hour the last week of April,  now the dreaded "spring-ahead-an-hour-and-want-to-scream-at-everyone-around-you-because-you-are-TIRED-event" (for me at least), takes place the second week of March. Couldn't "they" (whoever "they" ARE, leave well enough alone?)

While much of the rest of the country  are  preparing to tip-toe through their Spring tulips and are giggling at the prospect of longer days to come, those of us like myself who already don't get enough sleep, (I am often up til the wee hours of the morning and then I  awaken early) are seething.


I'm tired.

need my sleep.

Ironically while I am sitting here at 12:20am, which to me is 11:20pm..(mentally changing the time when I look at the clock is a little game I will be playing for at least the next week), all I can hear is the tick, tick, tick of the wall clock in front of me...it's ticking beginning to sound like "Ha...ha...ha... I... got.... you".  


I'm TIRED!!

Don't mess with my clock, my routine, my internal alarm, don't mess with my sleep-deprived self!

You are probably asking "what in the heck does ANY of this have to do with cats? Isn't this a CAT BLOG for Pete's sake?"


Don't mess with me.

I told you... I'm TIRED!

I'm feeling out-of-sorts, cranky and off schedule.


"Cats don't like change
 without their consent."

Roger Caras



For the record....neither do I!

Now, if you'll kindly excuse me, I am going to bed. It's 1:15am or 12:15am or whatever it is and I'm TIRED!

Picture Me This Photohunt Week 10 "Pointed" and Panic Day

Once again we are happy to be participating in a fun blogging event that was created by our friends over at A Tonk's Tail. It is a weekly photohunt. There is no pressure to participate, just jump in whenever you are able as we are doing this week! You can post on any social media channel that you wish, there is ZERO pressure (which is something WE LOVE!!)

This week the theme is:



Try not to be too jealous when you see the photo below. I passed this stone this past Saturday night (the pain started Friday evening at around 6pm)...........since today is also "Panic Day"............when one knows they are passing a stone they go into "Panic Mode!!" This photo is the PERFECT choice for the word "Pointed."

History of Panic Day
When it comes to holidays, you may think if the ones that are to celebrate fun moments. Panic Day is the day to recognize how stressful life has become and see what can be done to minimize the effects. Stress is dangerous to your health. Stress can bring on illnesses such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity.

Some people respond to stress by having feelings of panic which can be very debilitating. Panic can make a person feel that their fear cannot be overcome. While this may not seem rational, the panic takes over and makes it difficult for the once stricken to be able to make rational choices. If you feel that your fears and stress are overwhelming you, Panic Day is the day to make a step forward and reach out to a mental health professional.




That photo above  is the actual stone that I passed. Fun times, right? Had another litho on the left kidney yesterday.......joy oh joy!!!

If you participate in this photohunt be sure to tag #PMTphotohunt and @tonkstail

#Sponsored "I am KING of my Indoor Jungle!!!! Hear me ROAR!!" #NutrishPets

Rachael Ray Nutrish has sponsored this post, but all opinions are my own.


"I am KING!! I AM KING!!!" (in the words of Helen Reddy, "HEAR ME ROAR!!!")
 

Hi my four and two-legged friends! It's Cody! Glad you could stop by because you are gonna LOVE what I am sharing with you today!


As most, (if not all), of you know who read my blog, I am an Indoor Cat. My Grandpa Bobo before me, was an indoor cat too. Living in a suburban area as I do, if I were to live the life of an outdoor cat it would be much  too dangerous. There are cars racing by, and all sorts of dangers. So, it is inside where I happily exist!


Because I am an Indoor Cat my Mom is always trying to keep my environment interesting. She has provided scratching posts, cat trees, (specifically, one that makes me feel as if I am in my own "Jungle!!"), toys, lots of love,  and even a woofie to help keep me on my toes! But what about my FOOD???? I was already eating delicious Nutrish for Cats, I didn't think there was ANY way for my food to get any better, but kitties, guess what,  It HAS!! Look!! 

I am happy to introduce to you:
 
Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® Indoor Complete Chicken with Lentils& Salmon Recipe is a natural food for cats with added vitamins, minerals & taurine. This recipe contains a real superfood blend to meet the complete needs of your adult indoor cat and is available right where you shop for your family’s groceries!!




It is SUPER GREAT to know that my pals at Nutrish were also thinking of ways that they could help to enhance the lives of Indoor Cats (and in this case, their human Mom too!). Things had been kinda quiet on the Nutrish front when there was a familiar knock at the door.  Mom stepped over our spinning, barking, manic Sheltie (who probably thought the box was for HIM since he can smell Nutrish a mile away....well you thought wrong Sheltie-boy, but I digress!!), and look at what Nutrish sent!



There was a box with a Jungle motif that was meant for me (after Mom had to color it!), as well as a crazy fun butterfly toy. Of course, there was also  a delicious bag of Indoor Complete for me to try,  and some super fun items for Mom too to help enhance HER "indoor lifestyle" and to help her relax, (nice try Nutrish!! lol!!).  Mom received items such as a Magical Jungle Coloring Book, Colored Pencils, a cute elephant planter, pumpkin seeds, tea and more!


I couldn't wait for Mom to begin coloring the box. Do you believe it took her  THREE NIGHTS to finish it? Mom used a combination of crayons and special magic markers! Here is a close up of Mom's coloring job:



And of course, I had to check it out. 






I must say, Mom did  GREAT job with the box but what about my FOOD????  When I was reading the bag of Indoor Complete I was becoming more and more hungry!! Why?

Because:
  • Real U.S. farm-raised chicken is always the #1 ingredient, plus real salmon.
  • Lentils are naturally rich in fiber and protein and low in fat. They help support healthy metabolism and optimal body weight.
  • Dandelion greens & pumpkin are nutrient and fiber rich. Dandelion greens also contain natural prebiotics to aid in healthy digestion.
  • Cranberries & blueberries are antioxidant-rich fruits that are great sources of essential vitamins and minerals, like Vitamin C, to help support a healthy immune system.
  • Safely USA cooked with the world’s best ingredients.
  • No ground corn, wheat, soy or poultry by-product meal.
  • Intended for adult cats only (1 year or older).

Check out just how much I LOVE my Indoor Complete!
 
TIP:Gradually introduce the food by incorporating it into your current cat food over the course of 7-10 days. Slowly replace your cat’s current food with Indoor Complete until it’s completely switched over. (Because I am already a Nutrish Cat, my Mom omitted this step).
After I got to eat my delicious Indoor Complete, it was time to play with the cool toy that Nutrish sent me!
I have always thought my pals at Nutrish and of course Rachael Ray herself, are pretty darned special, with each day that passes Rachael Ray and Nutrish are ALWAYS thinking of ways to improve the lives of pets everywhere! Another example is:
Rachael’s Rescue® was created for all of the forgotten pets – the ones who might not have someone who loves them as much as they deserve. A portion of proceeds from each sale of Nutrish is donated to The Rachael Ray Foundation, which helps animals in need through Rachael’s Rescue. Through December 2016, Rachael’s Rescue has donated more than $17.5 million dollars to pet charities and other organizations that do good for animals. The funds are used for food, medical supplies, treatments, and more for animals in need. Many more animals around the country need help, and through Rachael’s Rescue, together we can make a difference in the lives of many four-legged friends.
INDOOR KITTIES! TELL YOUR HUMAN TO GO TO THE STORE NOW AND GET SOME RACHAEL RAY NUTRISH, INDOOR COMPLETE!
Thank you Rachael Ray Nutrish for caring so much about all of the animals, but especially all of us kitties!!!!  Thank you for sending Mom stuff to enhance HER indoor lifestyle as well!!!

  Thank you Nutrish for enhancing my Indoor Jungle
 by creating INDOOR COMPLETE!!!

"Purrfect for the needs of indoor cats."
