#REMEMBERMETHURSDAY

What is Remember Me Thursday? Remember Me Thursday is a special day when we remember all the pets we’ve adopted and saved. Each pet that was either rescued/adopted is very unique in their own special way.

I’ve  no my family and I have adopted/rescued all our pets that we’ve had. OK, I’ve had 2 dogs that were pure bread and from breeders but I consider them adopted/rescued too because in my mind, we rescued/adopted them from the breeders. No more breeding—Yeah!!

I would like to share some Rescue/Adoption stories with you. Stories are below.

Adoption Story #1: Snowball

Snowball our white cat was rescued/adopted from a life of being a stray cat and going house to house trying to find food to eat. She also dealt with cruel neighbors. Finally, she found our front porch. One beautiful sunny Afternoon while Dad was laying on the glider taking a nap. Snowball knew she had to convince Dad to take her in the house so she jumped up on the glider with Dad and cuddled up to him and took a nap with him. When Dad realized this, he agreed  to take her in and we named her Snowball. Snowball got her furrever home.

Adoption Story #2

SNOWBALL WITH OUR FEMALE ALASKAN MALAMUTE SHANDAR.

Shandar is the Dog we had  before we rescued/adopted her  from the breeder.

As kids, we wanted a Dog. We knew Dad didn’t want another another animal but Mom and us kids did. I remember Dad saying something no more animals in the house until pigs fly or something like that.  Dad liked animals just didn’t always want them in his house. Back to my story though, Mom started looking in the paper and eventually found Alaskan Malamutes. The Day came to go check out the Alaskan Malamutes so my youngest sister, Mom & Dad went to check them but they didn’t tell Dad where they were going. They were greeted by one of the Dogs the breeder owner. Bear was the Dog’s name and he was the Kal-Can Dog of the year at one time and he was a Champion Dog too. Finally they got to talk to the breeder and she finally agreed to to sell the runt of the litter a female Alaskan Malamute. We could take her that but had to agree to wait to get her spade/neutered in case she wanted to show her. Eventually she decided since she was the runt of the litter she wouldn’t make a good show. We disagreed but didn’t argue. Shandar was the best dispositioned female Alaskan Malamute, protective, playful Dog you could own. She was great with people too.

Adoption Story #3

The Cat in the above pictures is Tigger my Grey striped Tabby Cat. Tigger earned her wings and went to the Rainbow Bridge on 9-11-2015. It was a very sad day for me.

Long story short, Tigger was Rescued out of a home with lots of other animals too. The owner, a co-worker of mine was thrilled to find out I was looking for a Kitten. Tigger lived in a bad home and the stories told by her previous owner could have been considered and even called abusive. My family and I couldn’t take it anymore and we agreed to rescue Tigger. However, we thought we were getting a kitten and didn’t find out until the previous owner gave her to us that she was a senior Cat. At that point and time we didn’t care and we gave Tigger a furrever, loving home something she deserved to have. We miss her every day.

Adoption Story #4

Daisy Mae my current cat was adopted/rescued 15 years ago and 13 days. One night after Mom & Dad picked me up at work and brought me home, we could hear this sound that was very loud. I followed the loud noise with Mom & Dad following behind me. What we found was a kitten yowling at the top of her lungs for all she’s worth. We guestimated that she was around 4 weeks old give or take a few weeks. We fed her of course and gave her a warm bed to sleep which was in our garage. Even though Dad liked animals, he didn’t want another animal in the house. In fact he said, no more animals in the house “until Pigs fly”.

Pigs must of flown because out of the blue Dad finally decided to bring Daisy Mae inside with our Senior Cat Tigger. Although Tigger hissed some Daisy Mae didn’t hiss at all. Daisy Mae mellowed out Tigger and got Tigger to play more.

The day came that we were having my nephew Dylan’s 4th birthday and we decided to show the nieces and nephews the kitten we had found and so we took her to the garage. They loved her. We let them name the kitten. We wondered what crazy name they’d come with to name the kitten since they were young but they all decided on Daisy Mae.

Daisy Mae just turned 15 13 days ago and is still going strong. I love my Daisy Mae so, so very much.

DAISY MAE’S 1ST SECRET PAW!!🎄🎄🎄🎄

Hi everyone, guess who it is? Well did you guess who, hah, hah, hah, hah? If you guessed it’s me Daisy Mae then you’re right. If you are wondering what’s a Secret Paw I can assure you’re not alone. You see the Secret Paw program is similar to the Secret Sister or for you men the Secret Brother Program. The first thing you have to do is whether or not if you want to join. The Secret Paw Program is done on a yearly basis meaning if you want in 2021 you’ll join in November or early December then if you don’t want in the next year no worries, no problem.

When Mom Crystal told me she signed me up for the Secret Paw Program, I was really excited. It meant I got to share Christmas not just with my family but with my Secret Paw. Also, it meant I got to show a special Kitty Cat some love by sending them a special gift. 

This is my 1st Secret Paw Christmas. No, No this isn’t my 1st Christmas. Actually far from it. You see I’m 14 years old, a few months, a few days and a few hours old. Actually next year, I become old enough to become a Crotchety Cougar.

I got my gifts to that special Kitty Cat & Mom Crystal picked out and paid for the gifts. She had the tough job. The package was sent and delivered — Yeah!! 

Well guess what? I finally got my gifts from my Secret Paw Yesterday in the mail which was December 12, 2020. Although my gifts came yesterday, Mom Crystal And I only opened the one.  I hated to have to wait to Christmas Eve Day to open my gifts, which is tradition at our house. So what did I get? OOOOHHHH…. wait to you hear. I got:

1. Pet Water Fountain.

2. Fresh Pack Treats — A variety of flavors.

3. 30 oz. Chicken Treats by Temptations.

4. A pole with a feather at the end that extends up to 4 feet.

5. laser light.

6. Mom Crystal got Goats Milk soap.

That’s right, my Secret Paw was nice enough and thoughtful enough to get Mom Crystal something too.

We want to give a huge Thank You to my Secret Paw and their Human.

You all are probably wondering who my Secret Paw  is. So who is it? Well first, let me say I was really surprised who it was. Second, my Secret Paw wasn’t one Kitty Cat like I expected it was group of pets. Their names are: Sherpa, Harry, Puffball, Fang, Queenie and Cappuccino the Bunny plus we can’t forget their human Patty.

I want to thank you all for my nice gifts. I love them and Mom Crystal loves her gifts too. I love them so much, I think I might get in it next year if all goes well.

P.S. If anyone knows what their blog site address is, please let us know. Thanks Again.

Mom Crystal And I Daisy Mae, want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy New Year to you all. We also hope it will be a healthy and safe 2021 too.

Almost Wordless Wednesday & A Special Pet Parade

Today Daisy Mae And I have an almost Wordless Wednesday & A Special Pet Parade for Christmas week. OK so there are no animals in the picture unless you count that guy in the red sleigh in a red suit with a black belt. Technically, Santa is an animal too.

A Christmas joke for you all today.

Christmas Joke: Why shouldn’t you pick a fight with Santa Claus?

Answer To Christmas Joke: Because he has a black belt!!

 

With Heavy Hearts….

Daisy Mae And  are just heartbroken. We found out today more of our Kitty Cat friends have earned their wings and passed over The Rainbow Bridge. With 2020 being rough on us all in one way or another and Christmas around the corner, we’ve a lot to do including keeping 2020 at bay. The year 2020 has taken so many of our pets and Kitty Cat friends and made their Human owners heartbroken and really, really sad.

In the last few days, we have found out that we need send condolences to more Human pet owners. This time, they lost their Kitty Cats. To give these pet owners condolences please visit their sites and leave a comment. The most recent pet owners who lost a pet are:

Miss Ellen at 15 AND MEOWING  who just lost Jinx, her beautiful Kitty Cat.

Gracie from animal shelter volunteer life earned her wings and joined Jinx over The Rainbow Bridge.

Finally, Henri from his you tube channel Henri Chat Noir  . 

These 3 Kitty Cats joined the other pets who passed in 2020 and before and left their owners heartbroken. Although right now sadness and plenty of tears are in these pet owners eyes, in time their pain will ease but one thing is 100% for sure and that’s they’ll never forget their pet they lost.

Although all the pet owners who lost a friend in 2020 and before are sad right now always remember, your pet may not be by your side but will always be in your heart.

Your memories are golden of your pet and are meant to be shared with your friends & family. I don’t know what else to say Daisy Mae And I are just heartbroken at these deaths and so many happening too.

For those of you skeptical of The Rainbow Bridge, I assure you that there is a pet heaven too. Now I never heard of The Rainbow Bridge until I started  blogging but always believed that there was a Pet heaven. God loves all his animals and will always love them.

To those who recently lost a pet, our condolences. If you ever lost any type of pet in 2020 or before, you know the heartbreak of losing a pet. Yes, I even know that heartbreak and sadly have experienced many times over like some of you probably have.

Best Wishes To All Of You.

Always remember my friends, Cats leave paw prints on our hearts.

Cyber Monday 2020

OUR CAMP NEAR THE WOODS IN 2017.

Cyber Monday 2020 has come and is almost over. Some places like Amazon had Cyber Monday longer than just 1 day. How many of you were shopping all day? I usually don’t shop on Cyber Monday but this year I did. You see I got into this Christmas Program called Secret Paws well Daisy Mae did and I just get to spend the money[more about that in a later post]. I’ve had fun shopping on Amazon for the past few days and finally put my order in tonight. I can’t wait to hear about your Cyber Monday shopping adventures and things went. I know just when I thought I had my gifts and set to order Amazon, they said the items couldn’t be shipped to that address. Not one item so back to the drawing board.

Hi everyone and Happy Early Halloween. Daisy Mae And I hope you get lots of treats and toys. Daisy Mae is hoping for extra treats. Of course she will most likely get that and lots of scritches, cuddled and loving too. If I know Daisy Mae, she may go up to the master bedroom by the register on her Gobble, Gobble Turkey catnip pad she won from Ellen at 15AndMeowing. She loves that Gobble, Gobble catnip pad. Now onto Friendly Fill – Ins.

Daisy Mae’s Answers

1. I keep warm by sleeping by the register for most of the day but I do stay active some of the day.

2. I don’t need to be so demanding with Mom Crystal and her family but I want to be so demanding so I get my own way MOL, LOL.

3. I would want Here lies a smart, demanding and bossy Cat to be etched onto my tombstone.

4. If I heard something go bump in the night, I probably wouldn’t hear it unless it’s really loud because my hearing is going.

Crystal’s Answers

1. I keep eating a small meal for Dinner and a semi – big meal for Supper but don’t lose any weight.

2. I don’t need a Cat but I want a Cat hence the reason I got Daisy Mae 14+ years ago.

3. I would want a picture of a Grey Striped Tabby Cat and hear lies a feisty redhead that loves Cats and animals to be etched on my tombstone.

4. If I heard something go bump in the night, I probably wouldn’t think to much of it because I would think it’s Daisy Mae, something going on outside with the neighbors, some of the wildlife or something with house since the house is 105+ years old.

Daisy Mae Among Carved Jack-O-Lanterns

Because we didn’t want to get political, make anyone mad or even offend anyone, we didn’t put up the picture with the one carved Jack-O-Lantern could be considered political. So we cropped that one out of the picture but still have 2 Jack-O-Lanterns. We will put Daisy Mae’s picture first then the Jack-O-Lanterns. You will see each picture individually.

ENJOY!!

QUEEN DAISY MAE IN THE CHRISTMAS TREE BOX CHECKING THINGS OUT. THIS WAS CHRISTMAS TIME 2017.

Hey everyone, Mom heard about thing Humans do to Cats. Apparently they try to take pictures of our tocks in October. Luckily, Mom Crystal saved me the torture and already had a picture of my back end so I didn’t have to go through the torture. I was in the Christmas Tree box at Christmas time.
