Sam


Ok, Seaborne needed a friend, so Sam was adopted from Citizens for Animal Protection here in Houston. (West Wing Lovers will recognize the name! "Sam Seaborne") -Deb T.

**Is anyone participating in Secret Paws ?? Click on the link and check them out today and my post there also! It's not too late to join in the fun!**

**ML - Maybe you can figure out how to change the color thru the comments box w/html code. I know you sent me different html codes and they included changing the text color, but I never could get them to work. It would be much fun to include secret messages thru the comments box!! Hehehe! Doesn't take much to entertain me! :P**

Good Morning Sam! What a soft, fluffy, lovey-dovey kind of kitty you are! Very handsome indeed!

Good Morning sleepy head, glad you decided to join us! LOL! In case you're not sure who I'm talking to, it's you Kat! LOL!

Good Morning Fuzz Family! I hope all is well with you and your families! Lets have a great day, shall we?

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

I second the motion for a great day.

It's NOT raining here this morning, maybe Deb's migraine and my sinus will subside.

Sam is so cute. He is the one I can never remember. He is a very handsome cat.

Deb has a beautiful [big] cat family.

Emma's Kat said...

Good morning! Sorry I'm late!! ML, knows why! I can't seem to drag myself into bed!!! And now that there's no reason to get up (school) and the boyz sleep in till 9:30-10:00 o'clock! I'm getting into bed very late! I swear, we're not putting the kids to bed that late either. They are just wearing themselves out all day! Lol!

Ok, sorry Sam! Here's Sam! Last but not least of Deb's clan! He is a cutie and I love his color and flufiness! He reminds me of Marley w/his coloring. Is he a Siamese mix like Marley, Deb? And I couldn't resist as the finale, posting the whole fam together! Such a sweet family, humans included!

Kim said...

By the by, I named our get together the "Fuzz Family Reunion" because of "Family Reunion." Get it, you usually go to a family reunion. It just sounded cute. Our gathering could be called the 1st every, extraordianry, sometimes anual, Fuzz Family reunion! LOL What a mouthful that would be.

danielle said...

How cute!!!! I love this kitty! I tried to make the pic bigger and it did funny things! Who are all the fuzzies on the table?

Your secrets are no longer secret.

Emma's Kat said...

Lol! The fuzzez on the table are Summer, Sassy and Spats! They've already been posted, they're in the archives! And adorable ole Seaborne in the other chair too!

Kim said...

Good Golly! Someone get me a dictionary!!! I am having the worst time spelling lately! By now everyone has figured out that spelling isn't my strong point. You'd never know that I was an AP Lit student! So just overlook the poor grammar and spelling and we'll be fine! LOL!

Kat, couldn't stay up last night so hopefully I'll catch you today. I was SOOO tired last night! Sean has not been sleeping well, ie, I have not been sleeping well. AAARRRGGGHHHH!!!!!

Emma's Kat said...

Don't forget to check out the Secret Paws link! I posted there today. I linked directly to the rules posting so when you get there, click on the Secret Paws banner and it'll take you to today's posting!

Claire said...

I agree, ML, Deb has a beautiful fuzzy family. Love the picture where they are all together. The weather here in the Detroit area is fabulous today-sunny with a high of 80 but gasoline prices are also high-$3.099, yuck!!! Oh well, I just filled up but will get over it shortly. Thanks, Deb, for sharing your adorable family with us.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Good Morning! I was so excited to see Sam as the cat of the day -- thanks Kat! I was looking for a companion for Seaborne and called CAPS, they had just gotten Sam in, I went and looked into those baby blues and the rest is history. Time Sam spent in CAPS: 30 minutes! He is a flame point ragdoll. At least, that is what the vet says. He is so funny, but a bit of a bully in that he likes to chase Sassy & Spats. But one day, they decided to chase him...so funny, he hasn' chased them since! He loves to snuggle on anything "pink" -- that's right, he is secure in his masculinity. Migraine is a bit better today, but the rain continues :( . I'm going to go and find a kitty to snuggle, hmm...I wonder if there are any around here....oh that's right -- five! :)

katnippia said...

Good Morning Fuzz Family !!!!!

Deb T. -Sam is a very beautiful kitty baby. I'm sure that they just have a blast with each other.

Rose said...

Good Morning Fuzz Family!

Sam is a lovely bowl of cocoa Cool Whip, isn't he?! (I'm planning to buy Ice Cream today and I'm really excited...) I tried a few times to click on the pic of the whole Taylor Fuzz Clan, but what pops up is Seaborne's solo posting!
Kat, I've been a similar sleep pattern, too...but in my case, the Royal young'uns have formed the habit of chasing each other across my bed at about 5:30 AM...when they're finished, this morning it was 6:30, I'll take my meds thinking I'll just "lie down for a bit"...sure...
Hi Kim! I'm sure glad you didn't leave the "u" out one of those misspelled words in that one post up there...;-P Has a tentative date/season of the year been decided yet? It has to be DISCUSSED amongst the moms, because I imagine there's pros and coms to when school's in as opposed to school vacations...
oh ML! You get sinus headache/infections? They're just Miserable! Did I give it you you??!! I can take it back, now...it'll compliment the toothache I have-3 weeks and 4 days until my wisdom tooth is pulled...well, it never did much for my wisdom, anyway.
Clair, it's so sad that on a nice day, you don't feel comfortable just taking a drive because of the artificially high petrol prices.
I should leave politics where it belongs, in the dumpster. I just don't get it why ethanol isn't more widely available...

Well, this post isn't record breaking, but I'll try again later!

TTFN!

Karen S. said...

Sam is very fluffy and cute! Ragdolls, Himalayans and Birmans all look similar. They are hard to tell apart because they all have point colors like Siamese, except they are fluffy like Persians! I like fluffy!! No, I LOVE fluffy!!


Kat & ML-- Danielle is right--your secret is out! I want to learn how to do secret messages and change the color of the words. I've never used html codes before. How does that work?

Claire said...

Yes, Rose, the fuel situation is just one more "daily frustration" for most of us. That is why viewing everyones beautiful cats and kittens helps to raise my "good feeling" level. I'm so grateful for knowing all of you and enjoying the pictures on these sites.

Kim said...

I agree with Rose, why they're not using alternative fuel sorces is just beyond me. The technology is there, its been proven! Wal-Mart is going to alternative fuel at all their gas stations but a date has not been given yet. All of Alan's and my family live in other states and now it's going to be hard to see anyone! OK, ya know what, this is making me angry so I shall change the subject now. Politics is for another time, maybe another site. I don't care to go there.

I suggest the gathering to be in June, July, or August. Just not on June 21st, that's my anniversary. Next year is my 10 year. Maybe we can plan for mid July? That puts it after the 4th and before mid August when my kids go back to school. As for what year, do most people need more than a year to plan? We need a year to plan for sure. Would you all like me to set up a site for the gathering and all things related? That might be easier to keep everyone updated and on the same page.

Emma's Kat said...

Ok, everyone! Picture and link separated(sp?!looks funny) now! You can now view Deb's fuzz fam close up! And get to Seaborne's link to his posting! For some reason the link was attaching itself maybe overriding the html for the pic? ML?

Karen S. - I will email you w/the amazingly easy secret code. What I did on the post was actually not html code. But to comment to the post and get secret messages(change the text color) we would have to use html code. But I'm not sure blogger will support the code. ::hinthint, ML:: Like ML, doesn't have enough to do! :)

Emma's Kat said...

Kim - Sounds like a great idea to me. I definately need more than a year to plan!

Karen C. said...

Hello Sam - I LOVE YOU! I love your coloring, I love your fluff, I love everything about you! I need more pictures. Really, do you have more? Is he a snuggler? Can I come over?

Regarding what I missed yesterday when I went to bed too early - I think maybe another flower name would be good for Cairo, you know - to go with Rosie. Now, what flowers are white with gray spots and green eyes?

DEBRA said...

Sam

You are adorable. So fluffy and huggable! I would snuggle right up to you if I could!

Claire said...

Karen, How about Lily?

Meowmepurr's Mumma in Washington State said...

HA!! I finally got the secret message. Mine are too!

Good Morning All--other than heads and teeth, and Frank's heart, are we all well this morning? I finally got my suitcases out of the car, and watched the 2 races I missed over the weekend. Now all I have to do is unpack, and do 3 weeks worth of Paul's laundry(yes, I know, he can, but he won't until he has to)!!

Sam is just as beautiful as the rest of your mob, Deb. I can't say it out loud, but I LUST after a Raggie and a Coonie, and I think you have BOTH!! I also love your "Hail, Hail, the Gang's All Here" picture. My sister has one of her Gang, including both dogs, all on the kitchen counter! The dogs were lifted up, just for the picture!

If anyone wants to hear my lecture on ethanol and the sheer crap we are being fed by the politicians on the subject, just ask. Otherwise, I will save it for some other time. BTW-I do know what I'm talking about here;-P

I just checked out the Secret Paw, think we will all play!! What fun for the kids!

As for Reunion, if it's next summer, July would be great- I already have 2 reunions and a college graduation in June, and a fly-in the weekend JUST after the 4th of July. Since I'll be flying from West Coast to East Coast and back again, one more trip to the middle won't make that much difference!

That misbegotten washing machine is calling--Later!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Just got back, getting ready to go again! Busy day today.

Deb, saw your comments on Missy's website. That's the next thing to add to our database will be the FP blog sites (great idea, Kat). Plan to send the database to everyone for corrections, whatever, then, if they have a blog, they can mention that, too.

Then I shall go hide for a day and get this thing linked (whew) and we'll be so high tech.

Gotta run, will read everything when I get back. And just remember, these are Fuzz Pack secrets here. Cats (and their people) are a sneaky bunch, sometimes.

danielle said...

Don't forget about Stupid Trivia!

Emma's Kat said...

Kathleen - Hope you are continuing(sp?) to feel better! I honestly can't think of any names! She is so beautiful and I'm sure the right name for her will pop in your head!

Deb - You continue to feel better too! It's raining here today! No problems w/mighraines here, luckily!

Monica - Hope Frank continues to do well and if surgery is inevitable, hey! if it makes him better. I guess what you were saying the other day, though, was that he didn't want surgery out-of-town.

ML - Hope your sinuses quit giving you a hard time as well!

Anyone else ill or not feeling well!!??

Emma's Kat said...

Email from GS:

Hey all! How were your respective forths?! Mine was good. It was nice to spend time with my family for once, although I missed my babies. They were so happy to see me! Anyhow, I'm writing also to let you know that even though I'm back, I'm not posting today. I have A LOT of work to catch up on, and don't have time today for ANY of my web sites. Although I may say a word later on tonight, when I get home (IF I'm allowed on the computer, lol) So I wanted to let you guys know, in case anyone asks. OK, Fuzz Family, I'm gonna go do some work... TaTa For Now!

Kathleen said...

What does everyone think, Lily?

rosie(confused) said...

......do any humans live there?!.........

Kim said...

I like Lily! What a pretty flower to be named after.

Karen C. said...

I like Lily. It's a beautiful name which is also shared by my 2 year old niece, who I was able to visit after taking Cairo to her new home.

Karen S. said...

Just wanted to comment about the ethanol/alternative fuel. I saw on the news last night or this morning that Ford will be making cars that use ethanol. So why couldn't they have done this years ago?? We had this same conversation in my college economics class about 15 years ago!

Can that be made from corn? With our farming heartland, we could have a plentiful fuel source for ourselves and sell it to everyone else in the world. The oil companies would love that. NOT!

Karen C. said...

I still have the close up picture I took of Cairo on her back with little pink tongue out as my computer wallpaper. I'm looking at it and thinking "Lily"...hmmm... Yes, an extra big fluffy Lily, but I like it. Kathleen?

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

I'm back, for a second. You know, when you mentioned a name for Cairo, and whoever said what kind of flower is white and grey with green, for some reason I thought of a beautiful white lily.

So Kathleen would have a Lily and a Rose. Sounds like a beautiful garden, doesn't it.

But now it's, does the cat [Cairo] look and act and feel like a Lily?
What was that poem about the naming of cats...? I can remember clowder and kindle, but not the poem. Sigh.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Well, that one's gone.

Sorry about that, the blogger just mangeled (sp) my post.

I was very excited that Rosie [who else] had posted a comment on Missy's now-appropriately-named blog. And Charley and I can't quit laughing, you must read it.

I want to take a picture of Missy from under her chin. She was sitting by me, nose in the air, and I fully realized how big those FB's really are. They must stick out 1" or so, and then there's the fur. We'll all have to do this next and compare FB's. Casper is next, don't you know.

Karen C. said...

Rose - Sorry to hear about the toothache - can I join you? I'm having a root canal in exactly 2 weeks due to a broken filling with a cavity formed under it currently causing an abcess and half of my face is a dull throb. Oops - I should be at venters.

Rose said...

Hi everybody!
Oh, Karen, your tooth problem is not one to be envied...and they're making you wait 2 weeks? I hope they have you on antibiotics at least...
When I read for ideas about a floral name for Cairo, the old Floral Designer in me thought first of a White Iris, too! Then my mind meandered off to think some alstromeria (strain of lily) has such coloring, and orchids. But Orchid I can see as a name for a BIG tropical bird! Iris looks to have the most votes, but I had a cat named Lily that I adopted from one of the tech's at my vet's office. I gave her back to the tech when I was in the long term hospital. She was a-oh gosh, dare I? She was a (stripper music playing) a LOUCHE TABBY!!!!
Actually, I do have a camera that's over 4 years old - do you think the film is any good on it anymore, because I'm pretty sure I have the FuZZ I lost while I was in the hospital on it.
Next July for the 1st Reunion sounds do-able for me. Mid July, think I can surf the net for some prices now. The prices at the Lodge seem VERY reasonable, but one Has to avail oneself of at least a few hours in the SPA!!!
Gotta check out Missy's Blog!!

chat later...

Karen C. said...

Rose - The dentist doesn't know about the abcess because I won't tell her. I have to work dental visits into the budget because I have no credit whatsoever, so waiting till the 20th is my idea. However, my dad and step-mother have a house in Ensenada (Mexico) where you can buy all kinds of stuff without a prescription, and they do. Don't worry about me, I'm the queen of self-medicating.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

karen c.: some advice on your toothache: (my sister used this until she could get to her dentist):
Dentists use clove oil as an oral anesthetic. They also use it to disinfect root canals. Clove oil is the active ingredient in several mouthwash and a number of over-the-counter toothache pain-relief preparations. Clove kills intestinal parasites and exhibits broad antimicrobial properties against fungi and bacteria. Clove oil will stop the pain of a toothache when dropped into a cavity. For temporary relief of toothache prior to professional care, dip a cotton swab in clove oil and apply it to the affected tooth and surrounding gum. Cover the tooth with sugar-free gum to minimize contact with food and fluids.
Clove oil compress: Clove oil contains eugenol, a natural pain killer and antibacterial. Mix 2 to 3 drops of pure clove oil with 1/4 teaspoon olive oil. Saturate a cotton ball with the mixture and place the cotton ball beside the tooth. If the toothache involves a molar at the back of your mouth, you can bite down gently on the cotton ball to keep it in place. Leave it there for as long as possible (but don't go to sleep with it in your mouth.) Pain relief should begin quite rapidly.

Hope you feel better soon. Remember to take Ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin) with this, 600 - 800 mg. is the prescription dosage (bottle says 2 pills, take 3 to 4, depending on pain.) This is an anti-imflammatory & you should take it every 4 to 6 hours as needed.

Yes, I do have a background in medicine, just in case anyone was curious!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Whoops, forgot to tell you that if you can't find clove oil at your regular grocery store, try a health food or vitamin store. Hope this helps.

Cecilia said...

Sam you are so pretty and soft. You look very snugg-able.

casper's mom (Monica) said...

My what a nice kitty family you have there Deb T. Sam looks like a handsome cuddly cat. He is so peaceful in his picture.

What is this, how come the fuzz pack can't be free of worry and pain?? Teeth, headaches, heart, and what ever.........not good. Oh well, who says life is fair. Hey I got one for you. I got bit by something on my boob near you know what and I'm itching like crazy. Sure hope someone don't think I'm playing with myself, because damn it itches.

Sorry I am getting on so late but I have been having problems with getting kicked off line all the time. I think I found the problem but time will tell. Frank went to see his new cardiologist today. He did admit that if he was home instead of Sacramento he might have opted for the surgery. He has a heart monitor on again. To make a long story short the doctor has to make his own evaluation after getting all the records from when Frank had his first by-pass in 1990 up until now.

BTW, actually I liked Cairo for a name but if you are going to change it to a flower to go with sweet Rose, I like Iris, but it's Kathleen's kitty and it's her choice.

Karen C. said...

Kathleen - I saw your idea of "Kiera" for a name (in Isabelle's posts) and I like that too. I'm sure Cairo will be happy with whatever you decide to call her, because it's spoken with love.

Speaking of names for kitties, The Tower Hill Mob at http://masscatz.blogspot.com/
has a really cute blog about nicknames for their kitties.

Karen C. said...

Deb - I sent you an e-mail to say thank you, but I'll do it here too. I appreciate your suggestions and I'll go track down some clove oil right away. :)

jess said...

awwwwwwwww......love all of 'em! they are just beautiful kitties.
