Senior Dogs are Cool too! Senior Dog Rescue

Ya, this is a cat blog, but senior pups are cool too.

Just a word about the great things one can achieve with the use of twitter.

I have a ton of wonderful friends on Twitter that are in a group called, Anipals. Together online parties are put together to raise money for animal charities. Sometimes we are able to meet in person and share the gathering in what is called a "Tweet-up".

This is late notice but today a group of my friends get to meet in St. Louis to help raise money for a Senior Dog Rescue. Here is the blog, called Senior Dogs Rock!

Details: For those of our friends that can't make it to our fundraiser our twitter pals @MoxieDaDoxie and @MaggieTKat will be pawtying online on twitter from 5pm to 8pm EDT.
You can also follow the St. Louis Senior Dog Project on twitter at @STLSeniorDog.
Make sure you follow #seniordogs hashtag

I love to see old Golden Retrievers with the white around the eyes. So full of love, wisdom and loyalty. Its sad to see them needing homes, but it happens sometimes. One day we went to an estate sale. There in the back was an old retriever, now with out a home because both his elderly humans had passed. he was a lucky dog that day and a guy took him home.

Not only are old Retrievers cool, so are the other breeds and mutts. If you have a space please rescue one, they always appreciate it with love. They do often require more vet care though. If you cant take one in, please donate to those who can help or take some dog toys to your local shelter.

Thank you

Missing Tazzy 21 yrs old By Morris Cat

Written by My dear @MorrisCat through his eyes about Tazzy who recently passed at age 21.



Tazzie - she was a tiny dark tortie girl who lived for cuddles. She slept curled round Auntie P's head, even though Uncle G is allergic to cats - he just got used to taking an antihistamine pill every day because he loved her so much :) She was adopted when she was about 10 years old - I still lived with Auntie P then. Tazzie got the inside of the house and I stayed outside most of the time - we didn't get on very well and I bullied her a bit. When I came to live with NJ & Mr L, Tazzie and I both blossomed! She got a new lease of life and I rediscovered the joys of snuggling ;)

We met again a couple of years ago, when we'd both been to the V-E-T and Auntie P came back to NJ's for a coffee. Tazzie hissed and swiped at me, chased me outside, ate my food, and then went upstairs and fell asleep on NJ & Mr L's bed! She got her revenge on me, MOL!

Her favourite toy was called Snakey - it was a stick with a piece of bright green fur attached to a string. She used to fight with it, then drag it to Auntie P & Uncle G to show off her "kill", hee! A couple of years ago, NJ commissioned @orangecatblues's primate to make an animini of Tazzie holding Snakey - Auntie P loved it :) Tazzie is still playing with Snakey at RB now - G&P buried them both in their garden.

She was very feisty when she wanted to be - she didn't approve of dogs visiting the house, and this 5 pound elderly cat had a husky and a labrador slinking round the edge of the living room hoping that she didn't spot them!

Despite that, she was the friendliest cat when it came to humans. Everyone who sat down was a potential cat bed - she'd even roll over for tummy tickles when workmen came to the house!

She'll be very much missed by the whole family, but I'm sure she's dragging Snakey round RB to show off her hunting skills ;)

With much love,
Morris xxxxx

Can Lucy, 39, really be the oldest cat in the world? UK News



By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 12:03 PM on 5th January 2011

A family has discovered their cat is the oldest in the world after reaching its 39th birthday.
Pet Lucy was born way back in 1972 when Ted Heath was Prime Minister and petrol was 33p a gallon.

Cat experts say she has clocked up the equivalent of 172 human years - and cats live to be about 15 on average which means Lucy has more than doubled her life expectancy.

Lucy is still fit as a fiddle - and catches mice in the garden. Owner Bill Thomas, 63, inherited Lucy when his wife's Godmother Maria Lewis died in 1999.........

Beautiful Auntie Chi Chi


Nj's Mom, Grandmother of my dearest @Morriscat in Scotland adopted this lovely persain cross in January of 2010. She was recused from the free ads and they figured her to be around 11 or 12.

What a really cool kitty. This smart Chi learned to open her wardrobe door just far enough to squeeze in & sleep on the shelf, she was the queen of her home and very much loved by her whole family. Last Friday NJ took this pic of Chi Chi laying next to her in a chair. 6 days later she passed from kidney failure. She had quit eating and this was very sudden. She had a great last year of her life in a loving home and she touched her family with love.


love cat angel

A pic of Santina as a kitten with Jemna


A couple of the first cats I met on twitter, @MarblecakeJemna. Senior kitties and their mom. Later she got a kitten @Santinakitteh that keeps us all entertained with her fun pics and videos.


I meant to put this up a month ago, because I realized I had not got pics up of Jemna and Marblecake yet. unless I did it a long while back. But now it could almost be too late so I will do a quick post of pics and video.


Jemna at age 17, is not feeling well today so everyone is showing support right now at #Jemnasporch.




Marblecake. Love her name!
