We are now back into
our eeerie month when all the ghosts & goblins come out! On the 31st
they will be coming to the doors for their treats so lets hope any of
you that will get scared & possibly escape the "terror"
will make sure your owners put you safely in another room. A special warning
to all my wonderful black cats out there too to be extra careful this
month because there are a lot of very strange humans who like to grab
the black cats for their stupid ritualistic practices.
My vacation is officially planned- I will
be gone after lunch on Nov.
10th thru late afternoon on Nov. 15th. Again I apologize for taking a
vacation 2 years in a row but I really need some quiet time to rest &
clear my head. It's been a hard year for me. I never expected so many
things in one year to hit me. I've already talked to couple of you who
have accepted Angela & Laura to visit with their pets & for any
more of you who may be planning a get-away during that week they are available.
I will be going to the same bed & breakfast in Ithaca with Max. I
want to find some nice scenic trails so we can just walk & have no
We have some new buddies to welcome to our
fluffy family! I stopped in to visit with
last weekend & will see them again this week! Bobby is one of those
sweet black cats that just likes to lay on his
pillow & be spoiled ! Tom is a little shy but I will get thru to him!
hehe & Stink luved his mouse & kept himself busy throwing it all
around the room! I am visiting while their Mom got married! Congrats to
Michelle & Rob! I had a wonderful time with Precious-
a deaf kitty that lives with mom Joyce. She is soo sweet. One night I
gave her a catnip rope & she had so much fun. The next morning when
I arrived I could not find Precious. I searched & searched & was
starting to panic when I finally found her behind the plant totally zonked
out with her rope! I did notice when I walked in that the rope was missing
Ohh-such an adorable puppy-Patch!
Patch now lives with Lori & John & Snowball
the kitty! Both Patch & Snowball are white! Because Patch is still
a baby they are about the same size & they are so cute. One morning
they were playing chase each other around the deck steps! Remember when
I told you last month about the 5 week old kitten that Sandy brought home
from her trip to give to her niece? hehe How did I now that Sandy has
now added Biscuit to her family! I met Bosun & Henny who live with
Pat & Bill. I haven't visited them yet but I'm hoping their parents
will go away soon so Bo, Henny & I can have some fun! I also met Shadrach
& ShowBiz while Vi & Phil left! We had so much fun with throwing
Mice-ys!! They are great kittys but Vi was a bit surprised over the influx
of "mice" during that weekend! haha Now she tells me she puts
them in a bowl & Shadrach helps himself to them & tosses them
around! Lastly I had the joy of watching puppy Golden Retriever Lucy!
I kept calling for Emma
to come & help but she ignored me-- she seemed very pleased that Lucy
was chewing on someone other than her!!
If any of you are looking for some unique
gifts & want to do a little early
Holiday shopping- GRASP (Greece Residents Assisting Stray Pets) is having
a Gift Basket Auction on Nov. 8th ! I have sponsored 2 baskets to be raffled
off- One is a Cat Supplies basket- I included a tote bag, toys, a shedding
comb, book, etc in the basket. The other one I sponsored a grand basket-
Two for Tea- in memory of my Mom. I will try to be there for awhile &
hope some of you can stop by too! Here is the email I recieved to pass
along with all the details:
Greece Residents Assisting Stray Pets (GRASP)--a
rescue organization--invites the community to attend its Holiday Gift
Basket Auction on November 8, 2003, from 1-5 p.m. at Greece Olympia High
School, 1139 Maiden Lane in Greece. The auction is free and open to the
public; 100% of auction proceeds directly benefit GRASP and the homeless
animals it serves.
At the event, a number of beautifully-designed,
"grand gift baskets" will be live-auctioned off by Democrat
and Chronicle Columnist Carol Ritter Wright. Each grand basket features
a popular theme, (new baby, golf, engagement, pasta lovers, Barbie Doll,
wine & cheese, housewarming, cat/dog lovers, etc.), and will make
a special gift for someone on every holiday shopping list. An Invisible
Fence pet containment system (valued at $900) will also be auctioned off!
Lots of smaller gift baskets and other
gift items and certificates will also be up for bid in a silent auction
and raffled-off throughout the event. In addition, local home-based vendors
(representing companies such as Discovery Toys, Tastefully Simple, Home
& Garden, Pampered Chef, Creative Memories, Mary Kay, Cookie Lee,
etc.) will be on-hand to sell their most popular products. The community
is invited to bring along holiday shopping lists and "help GRASP
help the homeless animals."
I hope everyone has a wonderful & safe
Halloween! Keep dishing out that candy so no tricks are played on you!
I was listening to the radio one AM when the DJ was reading a list from
a dentist about the worse to best treats to give the kids ranking by how
healthy, good for teeth etc. Of couse the best treats to give are sunflower
seeds & other non-candy treats! I was laughing so hard because the
DJ was saying if he gave out the items that were best on that list he'd
have trouble getting out of his house the next AM due to the toilet paper
wrapped around it & the eggs thrown! hahahahaha So true!!! Oh heck-
we can spoil the kids 1 day a year! So have fun!
