Queen Mom Deputy Sister Crystal: Daisy Mae, Daisy Mae, Daisy Mae, Daisy Mae. Oh Daisy Mae where are you? Oh Queen Daisy Mae where are you my sweet sugar poops and sweet pea(keeping in mind Queen Mom Deputy Sister Crystal knows where Queen Daisy Mae is all along)?

Queen Daisy Mae: Queen Mom Deputy Sister Crystal thinks she can fool me into coming out from my hiding place and one of my favorite places where I like to sleep just so she can punish me for something she thinks I did, she’s got another thought coming.

Queen Mom Deputy Sister Crystal: Queen Daisy Mae where oh where are? Queen Daisy Mae where oh where are you? Queen Daisy Mae you really need to come out of your favorite hiding place you’re sleeping.

Queen Daisy Mae: WHY?

Queen Deputy Sister Crystal: Well…because I want to love you and if you don’t obey me, I’ll take your title away until you do. Remember Queen Daisy Mae just like I did before.

Queen Daisy Mae: So you want me to come out of my favorite hiding and sleeping spot because why? So you can punish me.

Queen Mom Deputy Sister Crystal: Punish you Queen Daisy Mae? Oh No my sweet sugar poops. I don’t want to punish you. I have a surprise for you after we do Caturday Art.

Queen Daisy Mae: So you really don’t want to punish me?

Queen Mom Deputy Sister Crystal: No I don’t want to punish you but have a Birthday gift for you.

Queen Daisy Mae: A Birthday gift? Really? From you? Wait, it’s not my Birthday so why are you giving me a Birthday gift not that I’m complaining or anything.

Queen Mom Deputy Sister Crystal: OK Queen Daisy Mae Let me try to answer your questions but only if you come out from your favorite hiding sleeping spot.

Queen Daisy Mae: Come find me Queen Mom Deputy Sister Crystal.

Queen Mom Deputy Sister Crystal: OK I’ll come find you but be it best to remember Queen Daisy Mae you don’t come out you don’t get your Birthday gift.

Queen Daisy Mae: OK, OK, OK, OK Queen Mom Sister Deputy Sister Crystal, I’ll come out but only to get some loving from you and to get my Birthday gift then back to my favorite hiding spot where I like to sleep or at least one of them. Is that OK?

Queen Mom Deputy Sister Crystal: OK Queen Daisy Mae OK that’ll be fine.

Queen Daisy Mae: OK Queen Mom I’ve come out just for you to get my loving from you and of course get my Birthday surprise gift from you the Queen( not the Queen of England).

Queen Mom Deputy Sister Crystal: I’m glad Queen Daisy Mae you’re such a good and smart little Tuxedo Cat. Now to answer ALL your questions. Here are the questions with their answers Queen Daisy Mae.

  • A Birthday Gift? Yes a Birthday gift.

  • Really? No not Willy(joke in my family) but Yes to Queen Daisy Mae.

  • You asked from you? Yes from me. As for it’s not your birthday well I know that. You see you were about 4 weeks old when we took you in and you got your furever home and you’ve been with us for 12 years. 

Queen Daisy Mae: So I’m 12 years old? So I’m able to be a Crotchety Cougar?

Queen Mom Deputy Sister Crystal: Yes Queen Daisy Mae you’re roughly 12 years old. Not quite eligible to be a Crotchety Cougar. You have 3 years to go before you can become a Crotchety Cougar.

Queen Daisy Mae: OH!! Can we move on to the Birthday gift?

Queen Mom Deputy Sister Crystal: Yes Queen Daisy Mae since you had enough loving I guess we can move on to your surprise Birthday gift. Without further adieu here is your surprise Birthday gift.

Queen Daisy Mae: Boy O Boy O Boy!!

QUEEN DAISY MAE’S SURPRISE BIRTHDAY GIFT

DAISY MAE 

Dear Daisy Mae,

I wrote this love letter to tell you how much my family and I love you and how happy and pleased I am that my family and I took you in and gave you a furever home.

Daisy Mae, when your MOM dropped you off and told you to meow as loud as you could so my family and I could find you, take you into our home and love you like there was no tomorrow. We did just that and we couldn’t be happier that we did.

Daisy Mae, I love you so much that words don’t seem enough to tell you how much we love you. You have snuggled into our lives from the time you were a kitten to an adult cat and I love you so much for that.

You are such a sweet, cuddly, lovable cat and I’m so happy my family decided to give you furever home because having you as part of the family is one of the best things we ever did.

DAISY MAE’S ANSWERS

  1. cat will not let its master forget feeding time.

  2. The best time of day is Noon because I get to eat. 

  3. Patience and waiting is not my strong suit.

  4. It’s all fun and games until you get old and can’t be as agile as you once were when you were a kitten.

CRYSTAL’S ANSWERS

  1. A cat will think she’s a goddess and it’s up to you to make her think she is a goddess.

  2. The best time of day is Night because it’s when I wind down or read a book.

  3. Like Daisy Mae, patience and waiting is not my strong suit.

  4. It’s all fun and games until a human or animal gets hurt or killed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#REMEMBER ME THURSDAY

DAISY MAE SHOWING OFF HER GREY AND WHITE BELLY. DAISY MAE AT 11 1/2 YEARS OLD.

#REMEMBER ME THURSDAY

#REMEMBER ME THURSDAY is remembering those pets we love and how we enjoyed them. Sound sad well maybe a little or you can do what I’m going to do and tell your unique store how you adopted or rescued your pet.

My story is very unique because you don’t hear what I’m about to write about happening to often. My story is about how my family and rescued my current pet, a cat named Daisy Mae. Please enjoy this true story.

HOW DAISY MAE WAS RESCUED

How Did We Rescue Daisy Mae? Well when they say a cat chooses you and you don’t choose a cat they’re right. It all started one night when my parents brought me home from work. Where I work was 25+ miles away. They were telling…

My First Song

fullsizerender-1 (2)
THIS PICTURE IS TAKEN AT OUR CAMP IN 2017.

The other day I was thinking and for some reason I got the motivation to write my first song. I thought how hard could it be—right? Harder than I imagined. Then the thought hit me if you can write a poem first then all you have to do is add some minor changes. I mean I already write poetry sometimes but it was coming up with the words for the poem and the song that was the hardest.

How do the singer/songwriters do it. Must be really talented. The other day on CMT(Country Music Television) they were interviewing Toby Keith about one of his songs. The song they were talking about was “Should’ve Been A Cowboy”. This song was written in about 20 minutes. If you want to see the story behind this song you do that by going clicking HERE . The funny part well at least I thought it was funny was they said the song was written in the bathroom.  

On to my song. My song took longer than 20 minutes that’s for sure. It probably took around 3 or 4 days. I will put the poem first then the song. Then you can compare the differences in the poem and the song. I hope you like it. Also, I want you to tell me what you think of my song and poem.  ENJOY!!😺😺😺😺😺😺😺

A BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY ANIMAL SERENADE POEM

When the leaves are turning color and falling from the trees, they make a beautiful multicolored carpet over the hard trodden ground. They make the perfect backdrop and stage for all of the country animals to perform their Beautiful Country Animal Serenade for all to enjoy.

When you live out in the country and near the woods, you never know what kind of animals you will see and hear. In fact, most people when they hear an animal in the country they think of them as noisy when in reality they are just practicing to play and sing a beautiful country animal serenade.

So when the country animals come together with their instruments and talents and the Bald Eagle sits atop of a tree, it is then you know the Bald Eagle and the country animals are getting ready to sing and play a beautiful country animal Serenade.

A BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY ANIMAL SERENADE SONG

A Special Flower Friday Poem

HEADER JAN REV 3
MADI READING UP ON HOW TO BE A DIVA.

Today we are having a special Flower Friday on Wednesday. What Madi’s Mom is asking is everyone who knew Madi to do something special to honor Madi. She really would like to see silly cartoons, some pictures and etc… I’m doing a little bit of everything. Hope you join us for this special Blog Hop.

Daisy Mae And I really didn’t know Madi bet yet we felt a special bond with her and her mom. Daisy Mae and I came on the blogging scene in January 2017 and April 2017. If some of you are confused, well let me explain. I started my first blog January 2017 and my second blog April 2017. Enough about me. Let’s get back to remembering 

You will notice in the picture below there are 2 pictures of cats and a cat waving farewell. The Angel cat in the upper right hand corner represents my cat Angel Tigger and the Angel cat in the bottom left hand corner represents Angel Madi. The cat in the bottom right hand corner waving farewell to Madi represents Madi’s mom.

MADI’S EYES ARE ASKING WHAT ARE YOU DOING MOM?

I also wrote a poem in honor of Madi.

Poem By: Crystal Stewart

Written: September 2018

MADI

MADI, MADI, MADI

You were a beautiful Domestic Medium Fur

 With a white chest on fact with grey everywhere. 

You also had a cute  pink nose with freckles.

You were a very lucky kitty cat when a 

Wonderful family came in to get a pet on

May 11, 2002 and they loved you so much that

They adopted you and took you to your

Furever home. You lived at your furever home for

16 1/2 years. In this time, you were 200% Diva all the 

Way, You loved Bird TV and Snoopervising your peeps.

You also loved all kinds of boxes and when you were

Younger, you were an excellent leaper then when you

 Became 15, you became a Crotchety Cougar. Your

Family loved everything about you and didn’t hate one 

Thing about you. That says a lot about you as a Diva Cat.

As your furever family enjoyed having you as their pet

And having you as part of the family, you always

Enjoyed each other’s company, compassion, kindness 

And love a cat owner has when they adopt a cat.

The time came every cat owner dreads and that is the

Day their cat goes over the Rainbow Bridge. Madi sadly

CHEF DIVA MADI

Went to the Rainbow Bridge on September 13, 2018 and

Was met by my Angel Tigger, other Cat Angels and 

Cardinals who came to welcome Madi home

 With open paws. The happy part about a cat

 Going to the Rainbow Bridge is that they are not

 Suffering anymore. The pain of losing Madi will

 Ease with time but the pain never goes completely 

Away but the memories you make with your cat will 

Always be there. So come Spring and Summer and you

See beautiful butterflies flying about, remember that 

When a butterfly shows up that is Madi checking that 

You are doing OK, When it rains in the Fall  

That’s Madi saying to you I’m here if you want to talk

And when it snows that’s Madi saying to you, you may 

Hate to shovel snow but the next time you do,

Remember I am as unique as the snowflake that falls 

To the ground in the Winter so don’t hate that snow

Because I come as snow in the Winter time. When cats

Leave us for the Rainbow Bridge, they leave pawprints 

On our hearts so they can build bridges so they can 

Bring all the memories back we cherish and so they

Can comfort us. So when you cry because you are 

Missing your beloved cat, don’t be ashamed to cry 

Because that is your beloved cat, Madi coming to you

through your tears. 

So when you go to get yourself a cat, please ADOPT 

BEFORE YOU SHOP!!

SPARKS: THE BRIGHT SIDE OF GRIEVING

Death is a part of life. We all have experienced death whether it is a loved one or furfriend(pet). We cry and shouldn’t be ashamed. Crying is a positive way to deal with death. Remembering and cherishing those memories made is another way to stay positive through death. Everyone deals with death differently so never put someone down with how they are dealing with death but encourage them and give them good, positive vibes.

    The last time I saw my birth mom was 12 years ago and 9 days.

  2. Living with another cat isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be.

Bookish First Website

What is Bookish First website? It’s a site you go to enter raffles and gain points by giving your opinion or review of first Look at the books.

What do I think of Bookish First? If you asked me that question a few days ago, I would have said I liked the site. Now after what I’ve experienced with them and what I know now about this site, I don’t like them at all. I went to my account and they said I didn’t exist nor did my points exist. You’re probably thinking what terrible thing did she do. They claim I abused the terms of the policy so they deleted my account.  Well guess what? I read that term of use policy and Privacy policy and it wasn’t clear that I wasn’t allowed to do share these book reviews. That’s right all I did was share book reviews. 

When this site said you can share your book reports. What they didn’t say was it had to be on a book on their site. I’m going back and forth with their people and told them if they wouldn’t give me my points back and account back to delete all my accounts. I also told them I was not happy at all.

Have you been to this site? What are your thoughts? Please if you have suggestions, please give them.

Courtney’s War: Book Review

display-28071d24ac82d2fb6327d873baa146c1

BOOK REVIEW: COURTNEY’S WAR

The book COURTNEY’S WAR is a book full of questions. Keep in mind that the author showed the readers a preview which consisted of nine pages. Below is what I thought after seeing the Preview.

After seeing the preview for this book, I was left with more questions than answers. Some of the questions you might ask are? Does Courtney fall in love with guy? Do they stay together? Who wins the War? What is the plot like? 

Would I recommend this book? Actually it is hard to say until I read the book in its entirety. Who would I recommend this book to? Once again I am unable to answer that until I read the book in its entirety.

I will say this and that is the author has peaked my interest to read the book and I’m intrigued as well that I want to read the whole book.

Rating I gave this book was 📘📘📘📘 ( translation: 4 books = 4 stars)
