World Cat Day

Today is World Cat Day, a special day to recognize all the cats of the world.  Of course, I believe everyday is cat day.

When God Created Kitty Cats
When God created kitty cats,
He had no recipe;
He knew He wanted something sweet,
As sweet as sweet could be.

He started out with sugar,
Adding just a trace of spice;
Then stirred in drops of morning dew,
To keep them fresh and nice.

He thought cats should be soft to pet,
Thus He gave them coats of fur;
So they could show they were content,
He taught them how to purr. 

He made for them long tails to wave,
While strutting down the walk;
Then trained them in meow-ology,
So they could do cat-talk. 

He made them into acrobats,
And gave them grace and poise;
Their wide-eyed curiosity,
He took from little boys. 

He put whiskers on their faces,
Gave them tiny ears for caps;
Then shaped their little bodies,
To snugly fit on laps. 

He gave them eyes as big as saucers,
To look into man's soul;
Then set a tolerance for mankind,
As their purpose and their goal.

Benevolent ... and ... generous,
He made so many of them;
Then charged, with Fatherly Concern,
The human race to love them. 

When one jumped up upon His lap,
God gently stroked its head;
The cat gave Him a kitty kiss,
"What wondrous love," God said.

God smiled at His accomplishment,
So pleased with His creation;
And said, with pride, as He sat back,
"At last. . .I've reached purr-fection!" 

I also wanted to leave a special memory of my sister before me, Muff.  Muff was mom's first cat who lived to be 19 years of age.  Muff left with my mom's ex-husband when he left her and she went to the Bridge 5 months after I came to live with mom.

I believe that every day should be World Cat Day.

Except Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving can stay.

Happy World Cat Day to you.
I need your help, recently I bid on an apple necklace and I won. I was supposed to pay then I asked Gracie for infomation. This was what she guided me:
"I am sorry that I am a little late in getting back to you about your question on how to pay for the last auction. If you go to Sweet Praline's blog, I believe that is the auction for your winning bid, there is an email address there where you can contact them and see about the pay pal thingie. Sweet Praline's blog address is: http://sweetpraline.blogspot.com/"
Can you tell me how I pay for that necklace, the owner of that necklace is sending me the necklace and I really don't want to be late for that.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Please disregard my above message.
I got 2 different informations, one to Lilly Lu Vet Bills and one to you. I had made the payment last night to Lilly Lu and it was the correct one.
I'm so sorry for all the troubles I might cause to you. Thanks.
