TIGGER

ANGEL QUEEN TIGGER ON MY BED WITH MY WHITE STUFFED CAT AND MY WHITE STUFFED POLAR BEAR.

If you’re looking at the title Title Tigger and wondering who is that? Tigger was my last cat. None of you got to meet my Grey Striped Tabby cat Tigger because she died on 9-11-2015 and I didn’t start blogging until January 2017.

In a nutshell, my family and I rescued Tigger out of a very bad situation she was in all through her kittyhood. She didn’t like men for whatever reason. I’m happy to say she eventually made friends with Daisy Mae and in the end made friends with my Dad too.

I wanted to do a tribute to my last cat Tigger who was a Grey Striped Tabby Cat. Tigger died on September 11, 2015 and this year marks the fourth year death anniversary. 

I miss Tigger daily as well as think of her daily. I look for a whole lot of Butterflies on 9-11 to celebrate her life.

I wanted to do do something special for Tigger so I wrote a poem for her.

A PICTURE OF ANGEL TIGGER WHO WENT TO THE RAINBOW BRIDGE ON ON 9-11-2015. SHE’S FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS.

TIGGER  

TIGGER you were a beautiful 

And smart Grey Striped Tabby

Cat that had a bad kittyhood 

But despite that you survived

Because my family and I took

You in. You hid in my bedroom

Closet when we first got you

But as you adjusted you came

To love us just as we loved you.

Tigger, you had this cute little

Heart On your nose. OH how you

Liked To play with string with a

Feather on it and OH did you ever

Like laying on wrapping paper too.

I even remember how you liked to be 

Under our feet all the time.  I still

Laugh and chuckle when I think of

How You kicked at  your litter all

Over the place when you were

Doing your kitty cat business.

Your eyes were dark with yellow

Around them. Even though it’s been

4 years since you earned your

Wings and crossed over the Rainbow

Bridge. When a Monarch Butterfly

Shows up with its beautiful wings. I

Know when I 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 and the

Snow are your friends not to

Mention when it Rains and Snows

That’s me Angel Tigger sitting on

Your shoulder and saying, I’m here

To make sure You and the Family are

OK. I love you very much

Tigger and always will.

You left pawprints on my heart!!

Daisy Mae’s Birthday Month

DAISY MAE AS A KITTEN LAYING ON MY TONY STEWART FLEECE BLANKET THAT’S ON ME.
QUEEN DAISY MAE SHOWING OFF HER GREY AND WHITE BELLY.

Hi all, September is Daisy Mae’s Birthday Month roughly. I say roughly we had to guess when we she found us. If we are figuring right, Daisy Mae was around 4 weeks when we got her. We do know she’s been alive 13 years with us come September 12th a day after we lost my other cat Tigger. So Daisy Mae spent a few years with us while we still had Tigger.

ANGEL QUEEN TIGGER ON MY BED WITH MY WHITE STUFFED CAT AND MY WHITE STUFFED POLAR BEAR.

This is what Daisy Mae has asked and of course, I couldn’t say no. She wants to party all month and would like you to visit us especially on September 12. Consider yourselves invited to her 13th birthday party.  Hope to see you there. We’ll be celebrating all month.

I’m going to show you a picture of Daisy Mae all ready for her birthday party.

Fawn/Deer Pictures + Bonus Picture

STC_0031

A little while ago I had gotten a picture of Mamma deer and her one fawn. Since then, 2 more fawns have shown up and since the trail camera went kablooey we got a new one and the pictures are much better.  Then of course it might have to with the fact its an upgraded version, it has High Definition, it has infrared picture taking and is it waterproof too? That’s a good question. I thought I would share some pictures from the new trail camera. The brand name is Stealth Camera 14. The first few Pictures are from the Moultrie Trail Camera then the last few are on the Stealth Camera 14 trail camera.

Short Story Review: Euphoria in the Desert

I read the ARC for this short story called Euphoria in the Desert. This short story was not only fun and witty but it was also clean and I think you would like it. I found it easy to read and a page turner. It kept my attention and I didn’t want to put it down. I rate this short story 5 stars. 

Bookbub Book Excerpt 

2019-08-24 (1)

So if you KU (Kindle Unlimited), read it or you can buy the book at Amazon.com. Not sure what the price is internationally but in Amazon US it is $.99. How long that price will last well I really don’t know. I really enjoyed this short story. It’s unpredictable.

Recipes For Cats

DSCN0087
QUEEN DAISY MAE SHOWING OFF HER GREY AND WHITE BELLY. (ORIGINAL PICTURE).

I thought I’d do something different. We do recipes for but rarely do recipes for cats or dogs. I thought I would do some recipes for cats. 

I follow TWO Spoiled Cats and found this recipe a few days ago on their blog and liked it that I wanted to share it with you. 

RECIPE FOR CATS: SALMON KITTY TREATS

Ingredients 

10 oz canned salmon undrained.

1 egg beaten

2 cups whole wheat flour

Instructions

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Pulse 10 oz canned salmon (undrained) in a food processor and/or chop as finely as possible.

In a mixing bowl using a hand or stand mixer, combine salmon, 1 egg (beaten) and 2 cups whole wheat flour until dough forms. If dough is too dry, add up to 1/3 cup of water. If dough is to wet or sticky, add a bit more flour. Dough should be tacky but not sticky.

Roll out dough on a floured surface until about 1/4 inch thick. Use a 3/4-inch cookie cutter in the shape of your choice to create your treats (or just form with your hands!)

Place treats on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. When they’re slightly browned and crunchy, they’re done.

Allow to cool before serving.

Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

CAT RECIPES: CHICKEN TREATS 

Ingredients 

1 1/2 cups cooked chicken, shredded

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup chicken broth

1/3 cup cornmeal

1 tbsp. softened margarine

Instructions

While your oven is preheating to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, combine the chicken, broth and margarine, then add the cornmeal and flour. Knead the dough into a ball and then roll it out to 1/4 inch. Cut into one-inch pieces and bake for 20 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet.

CAT RECIPES: CHEESE TREATS

Ingredients

3/4 cup shredded or grated cheddar cheese

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

1/4 cup sour cream or yogurt (plain)

1/4 cup cornmeal

5 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

While your oven is preheating to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, combine all the ingredients into dough (add a touch of water if needed). Knead the dough into a ball and then roll it out to 1/4 inch. Cut into one-inch pieces and bake for 25 minutes on a greased cookie sheet.

💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗

DAISY MAE AND I hope one of these recipes appeals to your cat. Cats deserve treats frequently and daily.

*Full Disclosure* I found these recipes on TWO Spoiled Cats blog. The original post of recipes can be found at TWO Spoiled Cats blog and also on the internet. I’ve not tried these recipes on my cat since I’m not a cook. You can create your own combinations by cooking with your kitty favorites by substituting key ingredients.

If you make any of these treats let me know how it goes and how your cat likes it.

Sabi Saturday

Hello and welcome everyone to CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE. Daisy Mae And I are happy you are here. For those of you who don’t know what Sabi Saturday (and yes we know it’s Sunday) is here is a brief explanation that might help you. It is:

  • the vintage/antique item(s) handed down or we “rescue” from garage sales and thrift stores so they don’t end up in the trash bin.

  • items we’ve upcycled instead of throwing them away.

  • items we’ve repaired in a transformative way to make them more beautiful or cooler than before.

  • the main idea is showing how we treasure or reuse or creatively transform things that have some history to them, may be a bit worn but nevertheless are still useful/beautiful and often have character.

Now that you know what Sabi Saturday is Daisy Mae And I hope you will visit Cactus Catz for the Sabi Saturday blog hop and for more information. It’s not only fun but it might just get you more traffic on your blog. We look forward to seeing what you have in store for us. If you can’t make it on Saturdays no worries Sabi Saturday blog hop usually lasts about 5 days. For more info go to the link above and ask them.

Daisy Mae And I have for our Sabi Saturday this week an old jewelry box that the artwork on it looks well… Japanese. I know I know you’re probably thinking a jewelry box is a jewelry but in this case you would be wrong.

Sadly I don’t know much about the history of this old jewelry box because I wasn’t thought of yet. When one of my relatives(I think his name was “Uncle Ted) who was in the war(not sure which one) came home to see my Aunt Kay Dee he brought this jewelry box back to give her as a gift. She of course was thrilled to see him but also thrilled with the jewelry box. Then when she passed away her family cleaned out her house. However and for some reason, there was not one person who wanted the jewelry box. In fact, her side of the family brought us this jewelry box as well as a lot of other items they did not want. When we went through the boxes of stuff they didn’t want it was hard to believe they passed this stuff up. We came to the jewelry box and Mom asked if I would be interested in taking it. I said yes I would take it. I took this jewelry box because I needed it but because it belonged to my Aunt Kay Dee for many years and yes it is beautiful. I have a passion for jewelry and jewelry boxes so it comes in handy. Yes, I use it to keep jewelry in too. 

Below is a picture of the last picture I have of my Aunt Kay Dee who I inherited this old, beautiful jewelry box from and the picture of the Jewelry box.

MAXI: A Special Tribute

ABOUT A BICHON FRISE.

ABOUT A BICHON FRISE.

MAXI

Written By: Crystal Stewart

Written On: 6-19-2019

MAXI, you were looking for a furrever home… One that would love you forever no matter what.

Then one day a miracle happened. A wonderful, loving family who had just decided they wanted a pet and wanted it to be a small dog walked in just too look.

When you noticed they were looking your way, you tried to be as cute and beautiful as you could. You even showed off by showing this family how cute you really were. 

IMG_2355
MAX SLEEPING UNDER THE COVERS IN HIS OWNER’S BED.

You have brown eyes like that of a beautiful brown Butterfly. Your nose is pink with black speckles on it. You were a small white Bichon Frise dog who looked like a medium sized snowball.

Because this wonderful family decided to get a dog, you now have a wonderful and loving furrever home. Although you didn’t have a favorite football team when they got you, you somehow became an Eagles Fan.

IMG_3842
MAX IN HIS EAGLES SHIRT AND HAVING BAD HAIR ON HIS PENGUIN BLANKET!!

You ended up being a Mama’s Boy and really enjoyed being with her, cuddling with her and laying in those sunpuddles. You also loved cuddling with your “sister” on a Penguin blanket, chasing the Squirrels and Chipmunks, Posing for pictures but most of  all you really liked and enjoyed being with your family. You also hated going out into the snow where it was really cold.

Before earning your your wings to go over the Rainbow Bridge after almost 13 years you had so much fun with your furrever family you didn’t want to say goodbye so instead you decided to say farewell. Although your family will mourn your passing and grieve in their own way, they will always have the memories that they will cherish and they will never forget you.

Now that it’s Springtime Butterflies, Cocooned Caterpillars turning into beautiful Butterflies, Cardinals, Baby Cardinals, Squirrels, Baby Squirrels, Deer and Fawns are so cute and fun to watch. Don’t chase or hurt these animals for they are your friends.  Well you see Angel MAXI  sometimes visits in the form of these animals. Most of the time he will visit in the form of a Butterfly or Cardinal but When a baby animal is born, When  you see a Butterfly, When you see a Cardinal or any type of other animal, always remember Angel MAXI is watching and taking care of you.
