We are sorry for not thinking ahead and doing a nice post for all our Furriends in the CB, and We know you're out there!
Today, We wish to dedicate this blog to a VIP (Very Important Puddycat) Emergency in Our neighborhood.
But first, a prayer for all Formerly Feral Furriends.
PRAYER OF A STRAY
Dear God, Please send me somebody who'll care! I'm tired of Running, I'm sick with despair. My Body is Aching, It's so racked with pain, and Dear God I pray as I run in the rain that someone will love me and give me a home, a wam cozy bed and a big juicy bone. My last owner tied me all day in the yard sometimes with no water and God that was hard. So I chewed my leash God and I ran away to rummage in Garbage and live as a stray. But Now God I'm tired and hungry and cold. and I'm so afraid that I'll never grow old. They chased me with sticks and hit me with stones while I run the streets just looking for bones. I'm not really bad God, Please help if you can, for I have become just a "VICTIM OF MAN!" I'm wormy Dear God and I'm ridden with fleas and all that I want is an owner to please. If you find one for me God, I'll try to be good and I wont chew their shoes, but I'll do as I should. I'll love them, protect them, and try to obey when they tell me to sit, lie down, or to stay! I don't think I'll make it too long on my own, cause I'm getting so weak and I'm so all alone. Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry, cause I'm so afraid God, that I'm going to die. And I've got so much love and devotion to give, that I should be given a new chance to live. So Dear God please, Please answer my prayer and send me somebody who will really care.
And now for Our Noos Repurrt.

The Cat Blogosphere Make Miracles Happen!
We just wanted to share and spread their message.
Thank you all again for the good wishes for Brutus and Marigold's Gotcha Day Anniversary.
We thought we would begin a new series of cookery posts featuring Brutus who, possessing such a refined palate, became Sous Chef to The Queen Mum and her Consort nearly a year ago.
QM's Consort, Michael, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, was Brutus' inspiration to make the kitchen His favourite room (aside from being where Stinky Goodness and Chik-hen Tem-Tay-Shuns were always served).
Now, not only does He have a paw in the daily menu, he has earned the title "Chef" and hoped you would enjoy sharing some of His Favourite Recipes.
Today's offering is a recipe that caught Chef Brutus' eye whilst lying across QM's forearms as She attempted to scan the innerwebs for recipes, one of Her favourite past times.
This is from a Cat and Kitten Cookery Book downloaded from the 'web entitled
"Pamper Your Cat: 100 Recipes for your Feline Friend"
2 oz finely ground beef (can substitute any preferred protein if, like Us, you're not fond of beef)
2 oz finely ground chik-hen
1 Tbsp. canned cream of Chik-Hen soup (or a Tbsp of Chik-Hen Baby Food! Num!)
2 oz whole grain bread crumbs (unseasoned) or oatmeal
1 baby carrot, cooked until soft.
1/2 cup shredded cheese, any kind that pleases!
Mash the meat and chik-hen with the soup then add the bread crumbs (or oatmeal), mushy carrot and egg. Make into two small burgers and broil (leaving much rarer than you would for yourself! Approx. 2-3 minutes). Sprinkle with shredded cheese and broil again until the cheese is melted. Allow to cool until warm to the touch. Garnish with fresh grass or catnip, and serve.
Depending on your felines, serves 1-2.
With today being the First Day of Summer, We hope you will try this recipe soon!
Next month, Chef will feature a recipe for Home Made Chik-Hen Tem-Tay-Shuns!
Mom Laura has decided, to bring Maxie home and make memories for a few days, then have him helped to the Bridge. Surgery will run about $6,000 and involves putting a stent in to hold his esophagus open. It was severely burned during an average dental procedure due to negligence by the vet. They are beyond upset and sad over this development. If anyone could help with an idea for a loan, please contact Mom Laura or even KC. They may be able to get the price of this surgery down somewhat.
We all know God does miracles.
The fact that a price is being put on poor Maxies' survival is sickening.
If you can follow the linkie to Maxie's page, (above) use the Paypal button there to donate (however much your heart tells you to!) towards Mom Laura's expenses, perhaps the sickness in heart and spirit within their home will lift,
and compassion will touch the treating Vet's Heart.
It was, after all, a 'colleague' of his that committed this heinous act of malpractice.
We in the Cat Blogosphere are spread World wide, but we all come together in our hearts when one of us is hurting.
Just ask the Royals!
We will start here in Our corner of New Jersey, and meet you all along the way.
