Whisper I Love You Day

 I am not much for cuddling but my whiskers tickle mommy's face.

Whisper I Love You Day

Angel Sammy was the King of "I LOVE YOU" whispers.   Mom or Dad would pick him up when he was little and he would put his nose close to their ears and his little quiet meows were like he was saying "I LOVE YOU!"...........since I'm not much for being picked up in the first place, I thought Angel Sammy should be the STAR of today's post - not me.  But that doesn't mean I don't love my Mom and Dad - I love them more than ANYTHING.

Baby Sammy.....January 2000

Hugs, Teddy


Whisper I Love You Day


Today is  Whisper "I love you" day. 

Okay...maybe I didn't just WHISPER!  

Hi Saywer,  I LOVE YOU!!!!

Cuddle Up Day With Teddy

 Well I have to admit right up front that I am NOT much of a cuddler........I'm an independent kind of guy and love to play with my Mom and Dad but cuddling - not so much.    The only time I cuddle is in the middle of the night (when Mom can't take a photo of me).......I hop up on her side of the bed and lie down next to her for a few minutes (literally just a few!!) and let her give me pets and whisper to me while I purr....then I hop down and am off.    SO - cuddle pictures - don't have them - now Angel Sammy was a cuddler.  He loved to nap on Mom's recliner on her lap or by her legs.   So I'm sharing some old flashbacks of him with Mom on CUDDLE UP DAY here!

He loved to cuddle with Mom for sure.......
SO we are a CUDDLE kind of family but I'm just not a CUDDLE kind of cat!

If you like to cuddle - do it today since we're celebrating CUDDLE UP DAY.
Hugs, Teddy

Cuddle up day with Bunty

 I like to curl up on the bed and be all warm. 

Cuddle Up Day Remembering Gracie

If you've been a long-time TCC member, you know that our Angel Tamir and Gracie were an "item" before he went OTB.   We'd like to think they are together cuddling today.  Here are some of our favorite memories of the two of them.

 Gracie founded the Tabby Cat Club and was the driving force to keep it going.  We know she's going to watch over us and keep us together even now that she's an Angel.  We miss her a lot and know her Mom and Dad and sister are heartbroken.  Fly Free Gracie and, please, come visit us as often as you can.  We love you.

Angel Gracie

 In a blink of an eye 12 1/2 years flew by . . . 


. . . I found my folks one summer day when they had a big family picnic in their back yard I walked up and just pretended that these were my people. The rest was history. I adopted them and had such a wonderful life of being spoiled and loved. The only thing I would change is a little bit more time but that was not to be the case. I will love them forever and they will love me forever. We will be together again. 

Thank you to all my friends over the years.

Farewell Gracie


Gracie was everybody's friend.......

Gracie will be missed by everyone who knew her.......

Gracie will watch over us from her special cloud at the Bridge.......

We love you forever Gracie

Love forever and a day............Teddy

Remembering Gracie

 We remember (well Scylla does) when Gracie was just a young kitten and she set her sights on getting her family. And how once she convinced them that they were her family she set out to embrace all the friends she made on the Internet. Socks was very fond of Gracie and we are sure he is welcoming her to her new abode, but oh how we will miss her. Thanks to Gracie Socks and Scylla joined the Tabby Cat Club and later baby Chimera joined as well and then she convinced Socks and Chimera to join her at Scouting. Oh what fun they had and after Socks had to leave for the Rainbow Bridge Gracie was there to look after Chimera. We are going to be lost without her. Our hearts are breaking for her family as we know that they loved her so very much and will miss her terribly.  Purrs of comfort and paws of sympathy for all that loved Sweet Gracie.

Tribute to Gracie

 Gracie, our founder, went over the Rainbow Bridge.  She was a guiding force and helpful to all cats.  If not for her, Ali and I would not have joined the TCC.  You are loved Gracie.

Reader: Gracie

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of sugar plums danced in their heads.

Mama~Tigger, Papa ~Teddy, Baby~Tyebe

And Mama in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap, had just settled our brains for a long winter's nap.


When out on the roof there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, tore open the shutter, and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow gave the lustre of midday to objects below, when, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer.

With a little old driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick. More rapid than eagles, his coursers they came, and he whistled and shouted and called them by name: "Now Dasher! Now Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen! On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Donner and Blitzen! To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall! Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, when they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky so up to the house-top the coursers they flew, with the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.


 And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof the prancing and pawing of each little hoof. As I drew in my head and was turning around, down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot, and his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot. A bundle of toys he had flung on his back, and he looked like a peddler just opening his pack. 

His eyes--how they twinkled! His dimples, how merry! His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry! His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, and the beard on his chin was as white as the snow. The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, and the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath. He had a broad face and a little round belly, that shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly.

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, and I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself. A wink of his eye and a twist of his head soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread. 

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, and filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk. And laying his finger aside of his nose, and giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim, 'ere he drove out of sight,

"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Great care was given to make requests for the story. If anyone was overlooked I am terribly sorry and please accept my sincerest apology.

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and the best in 2022.

Merry Christ-mouse
