Hi everyone, I write this post with a heavy heart and tears in my eyes. You’re probably wondering why? My last Cat who was a rescue and a Grey striped Tabby Cat and Daisy Mae’s “Sister” not from the same litter left us 5 years ago on Sept. 11, 2015. I miss her daily. I thought to myself what would be an appropriate tribute to celebrate Tigger’s life then it was like a light bulb going off. I decided since it would be 5 years this year, I would ask someone who I knew who did drawings if they did commissioned drawings meaning do you do drawings for occasions if people ask? To my delight the answer was yes. So because I had never got a picture of both my cats together I asked if she could do the drawings from both pictures she said she could. I was delighted. The woman and artist who was so kind to do my drawing was Carolina Russo. She has a blog and yes she even has her own store on Etsy. In fact, she’s having a Labor Day sale at her Etsy store now. Her website address is at the following link: Yesterday After and her website where she sells her jewelry and art is at the following link: Etsy Shop . I do hope you go, check it out and possibly buy something. I have 2 of her drawings and I love them.
The Picture below is a Tribute to my Rescue Cat who was a Grey Striped Tabby Cat who I named Tigger. Who’s Tigger? My last Cat who passed away on 9-11-2015. My family and I and Daisy Mae loved her very much. The picture is of the drawing I had drawn as a tribute to celebrate and honor Tigger. It’s 5 years this year and I still miss her. I took the picture on the dark brown recliner. As you can see, The dark brown from the recliner chair makes the picture look good. The Picture is Below. Daisy Mae is the Cat lying down on the bed and Tigger is the Cat on the bed looking at the camera.

CATS LEAVE PAW PRINTS ON OUR HEARTS!!!!!!!!
Hi Everyone, hope all is going well with you. Me not to bad not that I can complain nor would it help to complain. Today I would like to update you on how my book is coming along.
As most of you know, I write poems, short stories and yes even books for fun. Lately, I’ve been working on Book 5 of The Royal Murder Mysteries. Writing a book is harder work than you think. There are many steps that go into the writing process? So what are some of those steps. Some of those steps are:
1. Never assume anything.
2. Always and I mean Always make a draft so you know which way your story plot(s) are going.
3. Take notes.
4. Make story bubbles and/or boards.
5. If you plan on writing your book/poem/short story from your ideas in your head, be sure to make brief notes so you don’t forget.
6. Make short goals for yourself. For example, finishing a chapter is something to be thrilled about and finishing the whole is really something to be thrilled about.
7. Once draft is finished, be sure to edit the draft for spelling mistakes, grammar mistakes, formatting mistakes.
8. If you’re lucky enough to be able to submit your draft don’t be to upset if you’re rejected. Take the criticism and make it helpful and useful as to when you submit your draft the second time around and hope for the best.
9. Make a deadline for yourself even if you have no time limit. Trust me, you might just surprise yourself how soon you get your book draft.
10. Finally, never quit. It’s the worst thing you can do.
Now for my book update. Book 5 of The Royal Murder Mysteries is coming along slowly but that’s OK because I’m happy and thrilled to say, I just accomplished another goal. What was that goal you ask? That goal was that I just finished Chapter 4 at 8,218 words. Am I thrilled and happy at what I accomplished so far? You bet. My goal is to have my draft of book 5 finished by December 31, 2020. If I don’t make my goal fine and if I do well great even better. So when do you become an author? Is when you get published? On the contrary. You become an author when you complete your first book/article draft.
I wish all you unpublished and published authors all the best.

Abacus June, you were a beautiful and smart Grey Striped Tabby Cat that was adopted at 10 years of age from a shelter in June. You had stunning and striking green eyes that would warm the heart of any animal lover and those green eyes melted the hearts of many people.
Your favorite thing was to lie in your Tee Pee bed and you loved to play with stuffed mousies too. You also loved to play with your favorite house mate Molly Moo.
You spent many years with your furever family and enjoyed visiting your cousins BellaDharma and LadyMew. What fun you would have when you visited them. However, the day came when you earned your wings and crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. God wanted his Angel Kitty back with Him for company and comfort. Although there will be mourning, there will be happiness too because I Abacus June will return to visit you.
O sure it won’t be in the same form you’re used to but you might see me in the form of a beautiful Monarch Butterfly with beautiful wings. When you see a bunch of Butterflies, A Flock of Birds, Hummingbirds staying together as if to say I’m here for you and don’t be to upset or mad because it rains or snows. You see the rain or snow are your friends not to mention when it rains and snows that’s me Angel Abacus June sitting on your shoulder and saying, I’m here to make sure you and the family are OK.
Remember those memories you made with me? Well let me tell you something, they are very special so special in fact they’re golden. Cherish each memory and keep them very close to your heart. These special memories will help you always remember me and treasure me forever.
I want you to know and the rest of the family that I made it home and I have new friends to romp around and play with now. Don’t be sad for me because I’m healthy now and kicking. Always remember that when we meet again I’ll be the first face you see.
I want to leave you with one of my last memories and that’s my special Sunday Selfie photo.
Always remember I may be No longer by your but will always be forever in your heart.
💗💗💗🐾🐾🐾😻😻😻I LOVE YOU SO MUCH AND ALWAYS WILL!!💗💗💗🐾🐾🐾😻😻😻

Hi everyone, this past week has well been hectic. But Daisy Mae and I had some visitors from the Rainbow Bridge. 3 of them to be exact—2 Cats and a Dog. You see the cats that visited was my Angel Tigger — My last Cat and her new friend Angel Abacus June cousin of BellaDharma & LadyMeow’ss Purrfect Pad(more about that in a separate post). Also, my Sister’s Dog Angel Maxi. They all wanted to help with Friday Fill – Ins this week so instead of every answering questions separately, we decided to put all the animals together and I’ll answer my group of questions. We hope you like our answers to Friendly Fill – Ins.

1. Telling my Mom and Furever Family to do something is like trying to nail jello to a wall.
2. Other Cats can never be like me because I’m unique and one of a kind.
3. If I had a dollar for every time I meowed when I wanted something, I would be rich.
4. I wish common sense and brains grew on trees.
1. Talking to people who hate Cats is like trying to nail jello to a wall.
2. Writing talent never came my way until I met Maya Angelou and heard her speak.
3. If I had a dollar for every time a parent wined and complained that their child couldn’t have done it after being arrested then protested, I would be rich.
4. I wish common sense and brains grew on trees. Lord only knows that some people need them—enough said!!
Hi Everyone, I’m so happy and excited to tell you that Book 4 of The Royal Murder Mysteries is complete and Book 5 of The Royal Murder Mysteries is started. Last year when I made my New Year’s Goals not Resolutions I said I wanted to to finish Book of The Royal Murder Mysteries by the end of December 2020 and possibly have an Epilogue at least started. I chose to put an Epilogue at the end of Book 4 and because the book was getting well way to wordy in length, so I decided to stop at 42,238 words.
When I started Book 5 of The Royal Murder Mysteries, well it was a surprise mostly because I had planned to stop when Book 4 was completed and that would complete My first Box Set. Instead and due to length of Book 4, I decided to write a 5th book. How long will it be? That I’m not sure yet but what I can tell you is that I have a lot ideas to put in Book 5. Some of you might be asking yourselves, what are these ideas? How will the book end? The ending will be a surprise as will the other ideas at least for now. I hope you understand why I want to do things like this.
So how far have I got on Book 5? I’ve managed to get to a word count of 3,119 or 1 1/2 chapters. Book 5 is and will be the last book in my 1st Box Set I ever written. The fact that writing Book 1-5 came about as a fluke through trying to write a poem for a friend as a surprise which never came about I might add. Writing these books surprisingly have given me a new perspective, been fun and yes even relaxing. I guess you could say writing for fun at least for me has been very enjoying. I LOVE IT!! I’M STILL DREAMING OF BEING PUBLISHED SOMEDAY IF NOT WITH BOOK 1-5 MAYBE SOMETHING ELSE. WHO KNOWS??🤷🤷🤷🤷🤷🤷🤷

Daisy Mae’s Answer
1.) I would love to be a fly on the wall in these animal organizations to see if the money goes to help the animals or fatten the administrator’s wallet.
2.) I am missing my “sister” Tigger a lot.
3.) I could use more treats and peace in my life.
4.) I could do without being told NO by my furever family and these forgive my language but stupid people who are cruel to animals.
1.) I would love to be a fly on the wall in my former store manager’s office to find out the real reason why the store closed and the real reason why I was “downsized” the first time.
2.) I am missing my baby Tigger and think of her daily.
3.) I could use more Peace and joy in my life.
4.) I could do without all these people who try to scam you and also do without people who are cruel to animals.

4.) When someone disagrees with me, I try to respect their opinion unless it has to do with animals. I actually dealt with this already when a guy once told me animals are dumb. To say the least, I lost it and told him there are probably more animals in this world I know that are smarter than some humans. That was the end of the discussion except for applause from people witnessing our loud discussion.
DAISY MAE’S ANSWERS
1.) I really need a toenail trim and a brushing.
2.) One nice thing about staying home is who am I kidding I’m always at home sleeping most of the day.

Hi everyone, it’s me Queen Daisy Mae. I get to the post today although Mom Crystal is helping me and putting her 2 cents in. I’m thrilled I finally get to do another post. Mom Crystal is under the weather with her Sinus cold and allergies. They really bother her and that makes her sneeze a lot and I mean a lot.
What are we thankful for? OH there is so much we are thankful for. I’m thankful for my brand new Flea And Tick Collar that protects me, I’m thankful for my furrever family, I’m thankful for my My Mommies and Daddy. Mom says to tell you she’s thankful for ME, Her Family, All the front line workers, All the veterans and Active military workers, Friends, and all the Mothers.
Mom Crystal’s niece who works at a hospital in Olean, New York is getting an antibody test done today to find out if she ever had the bad Corona Virus.
That’s All Friends. Stay Safe And Healthy.
I am very happy, pleased and very excited to let you all know that Book 4 of The Royal Murder Mysteries is almost complete. I just have the Epilogue to write and not only will Book 4 be complete the Box Set will be complete.
HOW & WHY I WROTE 4 BOOKS:
Well to be honest, how I came to write 4 books was a fluke. I didn’t plan on doing this. It all started with me trying to write a poem for an author friend of mine as a surprise to her. Well to say the least, the poem never happened but a book started. I explained the situation to my author friend and she told me to continue writing and from there a friendship was born as well her being my writing mentor. So right before I wrote Book 1 I thought, I wonder if I really could write a book? So I challenged myself to finish 1 book. After writing 2 1/2 books I challenged myself to write a 4 Book Box Set. To date I am happy to say I have 3 books completely written and almost a 4th book completed. Once the 4th book is completed so will be my 4 book Box Set.
WHEN DID I GET THE WRITING BUG?:
I think I caught the writing bug after one of my college professors took the class to a meet and greet to hear Maya Angelou speak and then afterward we got to meet her. She was an incredible speaker and what I remember her saying is Never Give Up On Your Dreams!! After meeting her, I started writing poems and short stories on and off. Then in 2019 I wrote 3 books and in 2020 I wrote Book 4. Maya Angelou was a great woman and I took her advice… I haven’t given up on my dream of being a published author. Write now as it stands I’m an unpublished author.
Thank You to all the authors who encouraged and supported my dream of writing. Thank You to everyone else who have support my writing dream of being published someday. I appreciate everyone’s support and encouragement.
