It’s Time For Lil Saint Nick’s Cwismas Message

`Twas the night before Christmas, 
and all through the house
all the creatures were stirring, 
including the mouse

And all of the animals - the birds and the cats
Awaiting the Big Guy 
(you know: white beard and a sack)

They nibbled the treats, set out with great care
Careful to avoid getting milk in their hair

Then they stretched on the carpet, 
and lounged on the couch,
“He’s late,” they complained,
“that lazy old slouch!”

They had a proposal they wanted to place
To Mr. Claus himself, direct to his face

Yet as the night lingered, sleep was their escape
Except for one kitten climbing the drapes

She’d napped most of the day 
and was now fully alert
(‘Though covered with schmutz, 
some dark chimney dirt)

She finally saw him, black boots from the flume
White beard, big tummy: 
jolly you-know-old-who

He ho-ho’d quite gently, 
asked had she been good
“Skip the pleasantries,” she responded, 
“if we just could."

We’ve something to ask, a bit of a favor:
A change to your flight plans, 
one we hope you might savor

Instead of the trinkets, bright baubles and toys,
Deliver us, dear Santa, to good girls and boys

There are so many of us homeless, 
in the sanctuary we sit
Use Christmas magic,
In your red sack we’ll fit.”

Santa was touched by this most wondrous plan
But some things, he knew, were out of his hands:

For the answer to the crisis of pet homelessness
Requires a change in human consciousness


So he and that kitten now face us and plead:
Please value these lives, 
it’s the coming year’s need

Respect them and love them, 
treat them like treasure
They’ll return those sweet gifts 
many times beyond measure

And in some Christmas future, 
we hope for a true holiday
Every Lanai cat has a person for play

And to love them, yes, and to honestly care:
Then true Christmas for all, 
for all a family to share.

My Sistah Grappa is smitten for Lanai Cat Sanctuary Kitties


I feels full of Aloha-ha-ha spirit when I 
thinks of all my friends at the Lanai Cat Sanctuary

In true Hawaiian, here’s my MELE KELIKIMAKA 

And a Buon Natale too!

CATZOWEY - Guess What Occurs Every August?

 

Meowvalous Me & Myself got my Forever Home on August 4th 2006 
14 years ago   ... Yup Uh Huh
That’s August 4th 2006 - and look at me with my new Momma Baci!
She sure kept me in line cuz she’s an EyeTailYun momma cat and 
EyeTailYun Mommas don’t mess around!

Immediately I learned how to give the Staff “the Cats Eye” 

And it’s for sure I became an Envirocat at an early age teaching my Furiends
around the Planet to watch your water! Yup do not waste your water! Watch it!

Envirocat Me got into purrrrtecting paper too - cuz that’s what an Envirocat does!

Meowvalous to be up on  high places looking at the whole Planet !

Now 14 years later Me & Myself is a
Dapper Signore Cat styling and smiling at life cuz
life is meowvalous.

And pssst... 
I tells ya I’m kind of wishing  Me & Myself was going to the 
Academy Awards for some dressing uppa
and  funtasticat stuff and star watching too cuz I gots my
RayBans ready for star watching.
 But dangzatini it’s closed to us Meowsters this year they say.


But better than the Academy Awards is my meeting Missus Barbara years ago
at my Certified Animal Assisted Therapy Job at The ARC of San Francisco seniors
center where Me & Myself has volunteered for 13 years
YUP uh huh safe to say I been working all my life.

PSST.. not sure if ya knows but 4 weeks ago I got a Doctor who says I has 
Stage 3 Kidney Disease  (My staff hears there are 5 stages) - so puhleeeze cross your paws for me 
I’d be so so so grateful if ya can do dat. 
I just wanna keep on giving out purrs galore to everybody I 
loves so much- and dats YOU!


So Folks, I loves loves loves ya!
Be Safe & Stay In Touch With Me,
and please have a nonCATastrophic week,
Amore &
 Ciao & Meow too
