Answer Your Cat's Questions



Why do they make the treat box so hard to get into???

Answer Your Cat's Questions Day With Ted

 Oh boy!  Now if I can just come up with some questions for Mom.......!

Question #1:  When I was little I used to love lying in the sink.  How come I can't do that anymore?
Mom's Answer:   Because you are about TWICE the size of that sink now!

Question #2:   I love hiking in the woods with Dad - how come we can't do that now?
Mom's Answer:  Because there's snow and ice in the woods and the snow is COLD and the ice is DANGEROUS - Spring will be here soon - I promise!

Question #3:   Why did Angel Sammy have to go to the Bridge before I got to meet him?
Mom's Answer:   Sammy was sick and old and I know he didn't WANT to go but he was needed at the Bridge - he made sure that we went to the shelter where we had adopted him and where we found YOU and he is with you every minute of every day.   One day we'll all be together.

OK Mom............I guess that's all I wanted to know.   I'm glad you and Dad took good care of Sammy and take such good care of me.   I'm lucky!

Mom:  We feel very lucky to have you in our lives Ted - just like we felt with Angel Sammy!

Love, Mom and Teddy

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.
