DaisyMae Maus: August 1993 - December 2012


Rest In Peace, Honey Maus ...

After the events of this morning, I thought that I had gotten through the worst parts of losing DaisyMae Maus, but I found myself unable to finish my supper this evening because no little Tuxedo face looked up at me from the floor beside my chair imploring me for a sniff and/or a bite of what I was eating.  She has always been there to share at mealtimes ... And if it were something that she really, really liked, she’d bob her head up and down like a pigeon and say “hmmph” until I gave her some.

She was my everything ... the “one” ... that perfect friend ... my “lobster.”  Of the thirteen cats I’ve lived with during my lifetime, she is the only one who chose me, who sought me out, because she wanted to be with me.  I’ve known her all but eight weeks of her life (she’s lived with me for sixteen years as of today).  I’ve shared those years first with her sleeping on the aluminum shed top beside my bedroom window, and then with her sleeping on the pillow beside my head; waiting in the window while I was at work; resting beneath my chin on the floor while I read the newspaper.  Nothing she did was ever only for her:  she was totally unselfish with her affections.  Her last day on this earth was the ultimate unselfish act on her part.  She lived through 2012 with me because she knew that I needed her.  When I had my health crisis back in February, she waited for me and helped to snoopervise the home health nurses as I regained my health.  She tolerated B12 shots and subQ fluids that must have been painful and uncomfortable so that she could support me.  But she knew.  She’d given herself an “expiration date” and chose the last day of a difficult year to take her last breaths in order to insure that 2013 wouldn’t be one of sorrow for me.  Call it anthropomorphism if you will, but she was thinking ... unselfishly ... of me.

I do believe wholeheartedly in “the Rainbow Bridge” and I sincerely hope that, when my turn comes, she’ll meet me there -- I can’t imagine that Eternity would be all that wonderful without her there with me.

I love you.  I will ALWAYS love you and miss you, Baby Girl!
DaisyMae Maus -- August 1993 - December 31, 2012
“Fly free, Bright Angel,  fly free.”

DMM is gone ...

At 9:43 this morning, on her sixteenth gotchaversary, DMM was helped to the Bridge and died peacefully while I stood at her side. Eulogy will follow when I can see straight and have had some time to reflect ...

DMM's Gotcha Day!

It was sixteen years ago on December 31, 1996, that DaisyMaeMaus and her brofur, Huckleberry Finn (Finny), moved in with me after spending most of their lives with me instead of their original owners. Finny has been gone for nearly eight years, but sweet Miss DMM is still hanging in there ...
Here's to more time with my baby girl.

Happy Gotchaversary!

And happy 2013 to efurryone!

We're blogging for PEACE, peoples!

Show us YOUR belly for PEACE!


As efurryone knows, showin' the belly is one of the most effective ways to let your furriends know that you trust them.  Trust is an important precursor to peace.  Today, take a chance an' show the world your belly in the name of PEACE.  Dona Nobis Pacem, doods!

A Furry Pile of Black(ish) Cats are Team Lounging!


Tillie, Tiger, Treasure, Georgia, and J.J. have configured themselves in the shape of the five Cat-O-Lympic rings for their Team Lounge!  Check them out an' be amazed at both their athletic prowess an' the coordination of their team uniform:  Tortie, Stripes an' cool black combine for a classic (an' classy) look that telegraphs just how athletically this group has performed in its Team Lounging effort!

How will they stack up next to the other teams in this cutthroat competition?  Only time will tell.

One thing I do know is that the Team Lounging competition has now CLOSED!  Which group of athletes will be the gold-, silver-, and bronze-medallists?  Stay tuned to find out!

Just in time; Team Lounging with China Cat Sunflower an' Miss Willow!

China Cat an' Willow have been Valentines of Feline Americans an' our close furriends for YEARS!  So it's only fitting that these lovely ladies are the last of the athletes in the Team Lounging competition!

As you can see, these athletes are utilizing a laundry basket of clothes fresh from the dryer as their unjique lounge platform!


How was this stunning effort achieved?  Well, China Cat Sunflower ... in the glorious orinch uniform ... spied the unguarded basket of clothes an' snuggled her way in to snooze for awhile (at least 'til the clothes lost their 'warm') an' Miss Willow, not to be denied a soft, warm lounging spot, piled on top of her teammate!  You can recognize Miss Willow by her fetching tri-color team uniform!

Purrsonally, I have not seen a better use of laundry in all of my nine lives!  This lounge effort is a crowning achievement for two intrepid athletes.

Each of the sisfurs has her own bloggie on the interwebs:  You can find them by clicking Willow and China Cat Sunflower.

Mona and Weenie are Team Lounging with their cousins!

This is our most populated Team Lounging entry yet!  Wow!  Eight live competitors (we cannot include the leopard spotted 'member' beneath the woofies although it kinda looks like a kitty's furs).  Mona an' Weenie have gathered their cousins an' momma, too, for their Team Lounging entry an' they're posed on a beige lounging platform to best display their Dachshund uniforms!  You can find them at their bloggie Mona & Weenie.

It isn't efurryday that one is able to convince one's cousins an' momma to rigorously train for such a competitive Olympic event as Team Lounging, but when one is able ... an' does it as well as these intrepid woofies (an' momma) ... well, it's just poetry in lounging!


Mona was careful to state that she is in the wire-hair uniform while her brofur, Weenie, is being gripped on the snout by momma.  The other five athletes in the photo are Dachshunds owned by Auntie Judy who are taking time from their other athletic contests to participate as part of Mona and Weenie's Team Lounging contingent.

Whisppy's Furries are Team Lounging!

The Furries of Whisppy are Team Lounging an' have entered as an interspecies team of Whisky the woofie an' Tutu the kitty!



Notice how their competition entry is a virtual 'yin and yang' of placement on the lounge platform!  Oh, an' don't let the purple an' gray color of the platform distract your attention from the athletes' stunning uniforms!  Whisky is resplendent in white while Tutu's torty furs look especially beautiful!

Stop by their bloggie ... The Furries of Whisppy ... or any of the other competitors entered in the Team Lounging competition to offer your encouragement!

Remember to get your entry submitted by no later than MIDNIGHT PDT tonight ... July 13th!  Time is truly running out!

The Kwee Cats are Team Lounging!

The Kwee Cats are Team Lounging!  Check 'em out as they make the fullest use of their lounge platform in a double-decker effort!  These competitors are true lounge athletes!


From the lower level on the left in the gray an' white uniform is Sneaky Pie spooning with Odysseus who's dressed in the natty black an' white team uniform.

In the upper lounging position on the back of the sofa in the all black uniform is Oliver in a head-to-head match up with his lounge partner.  Rounding out the Kwee Cat's entry is Pyewhackit wearin' the white with gray tiger stripes.

How will this team rank among all the entries in this grueling and highly competitive athletic competition?  With it being the 2012 Cat-O-Lympics, anything can happen!

Multispecies Lounging from the Legacy Chronicles!

Casey the Boxer an' sister, Cinderella, are making good use of their lounge platform in this first entry from the the Legacy Chronicles.  Notice how they're virtually 'butt to butt' in this head-to-head match up featuring woofies vs. kitties!



In this second Team Lounging entry for this 2012 Cat-O-Lympics competition, we have siblings Pigeon an' Scribbles givin' it their very best in this athletic endeavor.


Where the woofies lounged 'butt to butt' to cover as much of the platform as possible in their lounging effort, the kitties are instead 'head to head' an' seem almost in the coveted cuddle position.

If you wanna check out these athletes in their off time, stop by the Legacy Chronicles an' get your Boxer on!

Team Lounging with the kitties from Mark's Mews!

Our furry bestest furriends, Ayla, Iza an' Marley, are Team Lounging in a furry unique way:  They're actually trying to take up the same place on the lounging platform in a veritable 'fur pile' ...  Ayla an' Iza are the Meezer girls on the right, an' wearing the stunning orinch uniform is little brofur Marley on the left.  It seems to me that Ayla might be trying to smoosh Marley just a tad!


If you wanna check out their bloggie, you can find them hanging out with the Big Thing in their fabulous back yard at Mark's Mews.!!

Now for a brief intermission: BLOGOVERSARY!

I'm taking a tiny break from the competition of Team Lounging to celebrate!  I was alerted by Meow Meowmans that today, July 10, 2012, is my SIXTH Blogoversary!  My very first post was made on this date in 2006 after much coercion of Mom ... who wasn't thrilled to be "used" for her thumbs an' typing skills.

I wanna say "thank you" to all of the readers out there who have made my bloggie well-read an' have kept me in-the-loop when things weren't so good.


I wanna shout out to Skeezix the Cat for showing Mom how to make "flats" of us (especially ME) to take efurrywhere so we could meet famous folks like Cheysuli an' Ichiro an' Gemini an' make furrever furriends like Mr. Emerson an' Little Nicky, Ayla, Iza, an' Marley at Mark's Mews an' all of the Purries at Purrchance to Dream.

Also, I wanna thank all of the Feline Americans who started this bloggie with me when I was younger: Percy, Fudge Ripple, Cocoa Francis Puff, Pumpkin, Sparky Fuzzypants, an' Lucky Charmz.


Yours,
DMM

Team PP-M-SS is Team Lounging!


Pasha sent representatives of her five feline Cat-O-Lympic team, PP-M-SS (as displayed by their team blog below) to enter the Team Lounging event.  From front to back are House Panthers Sima (front) and Moonjoo (middle) with fluffy CowCat Sweet in the rear position.

Notice how the team is taking full advantage of Sima's silky black furs an' how the momentum of the Team Lounge flows seamlessly between the members (especially between the first two lounge positions:  Sima an' Moonloo!  Having Sweet in the rear position certainly leaves this effort with a strong finish in the judge's eyes.  Sweet is gorgeous!  

How will this effort rank in the scoring of this complex an' challenging event?  Will there be other competitors who will have as stunning an entry as this one?  Competitors have until the end of this work week to get their photos turned in at daisymaemausATyahooDOTcom!

Our best furriends: Daphne an' Jack!


Our Uncle Mo ... "Not the Mama" from "Purrchance to Dream" ... captured this Team Lounging effort by Purry members Daphne an' Jack.


Notice how Jack's furs are coordinated beautifully ... an' Daphne's are equally contrasted ... with the seat cushion in their lounging platform!  Clearly both asleep, competitor Jack is "spooning" Miss Daphne, his athletic partner in this world-class lounge.  Great use of feline stretchiness for maximum surface area coverage!

Hey! It's Eric an' Flynn an' they're Team Lounging!

Long-time furriends an' Gorgeous Gingers Eric an' Flynn of Devon, England, are Team Lounging in their beautiful outside-time ManCat Cave ... called a purrison cage ... soakin' up the Vitamin D that keeps their orinch furs especially handsome!

Don't they look furry comfortable basking on their wooden platform amidst the warm summer breeze an' green grasses?  A wire fence lets bugs in (protien!), but keeps preditory types OUT!  The tall hedge behind them serves both to highlight their gingery goodness AND provides a welcome relief from the purr-purr-azzi who likely hound this dynamic duo's efurry moment!

Oskar an' Chloe are Team Lounging ... Interspecies style!


Our woofie furriend, Oskar, and his sisfur, Chloe, are Team Lounging interspecies style for the 2012 Cat-O-Lympics!  Oskar says that this type of lounge is furry infrequent in his house 'cuz he says that Chloe "doesn't like him."

We think that she likes him just fine because this is a superb example of Team Lounging!  Perhaps she just doesn't like the rainy, gray weather outside, Oskar!

You can find Oskar at this furry own blog:  Oskar's blog or you can visit their whole household at Pets United!.

Florida Furkids are Team Lounging!


Hey, efurrybody!  It's July 8th an' time is running low if you still wanna compete in Team Lounging in the 2012 Cat-O-Lympics!

Our furriends, the Florida Furkids, are displaying their furs in a Team Lounging effort that looks really hard to beat!  Gotta give 'em points for the lovely coverlet on their lounging platform that coordinates beautifully with both the creamy Himmie furs (on Allie an' Ellie) an' the classic orinch (on Tamir)!  Nice job!

Devon, Tanner an' Smokey of Four Crazy Cats are Team Lounging!


From left to right:  Devon, Tanner an' Smokey are coverin' as much surfice area as possible in their dynamic Team Lounging effort.  Clearly Devon is the leader in this orchestration of feline achievement as he's looking directly into the flashy box as it captures them in a Cat-O-Lympics competition lounge.

The competition judge is especially appreciative of the athletes' symmetry as Tanner, in his orinch an' white uniform is in the center position between Devon an' Smokey in their sleek black uniforms.  Such grace an' subtle beauty in this effort.  Very impressive, to say the least!

How will these intrepid competitors score in the highly challenging world of Team Lounging?  Stay tuned at this blog to find out!

Happy 14th Gotchaversary to Angel Sparky Fuzzypants!

Today is a bittersweet day at our house.  Yes.  It IS Tom Cruise's fiftieth birthday.  But it was a more important day for the Feline Americans:  It is the fourteenth gotchaversary of our dear-departed stripy dood, Sparky Kyoot Fuzzypants.

In his honor, Charmee and I had bowls of chicken an' greens Fancy Feast for dinner an' we licked our bowls clean as he would have done if he were still with us instead of ruuning around like a crazy cat at the Rainbow Bridge.


Here's to you, dood!  Happy Gotchaversary!

From FINLAND -- Team Lounging!

Our Finnish furriend, Harris, an' his fambly have submitted their entry into the Team Lounging competition with a stellar group effort!  Check all SIX of them out as they take advantage of a sunny day soakin' in the sunshine on their outdoor deck or in the green, green grass!  (The only time WE get to go outside is in a PTU to visit the v-e-t at Banfield).  Charmee and I are so jealous!  Our "sunny spot" on the bed or at the windowsill just doesn't compare to real honest-to-goodness OUTSIDE!



If you wanna make a trip to this Finland bloggie, check out Harris's fambly at PIKKUPUNAPIPPURI an' brush up on your Finnish!  

How will Harris an' fambly stack up against the stiff competition in this event?  Stay tuned to find out!  Just ten days left to submit your entry photograph for the Cat-O-Lympics Team Lounging!

The Zoolatry Girls are Loungin'!



Maggy (left) an' Zoey (right) from Zoolatry are demonstrating synchronized Team Lounging in this photo taken by the Zoolatry mom, Ann.  Notice how each of the ladies blends into her surroundings all the while beautifying their sunroom!  They look so comfy in their whicker rocking chairs.  If Zoey were facin' the other direction, the ladies would be mirror images!

How will Maggy and Zoey score against their competition?  There's a little time left to get YOUR entry into this highly competitive event!  YOU can go head-to-head with the Zoolatry Girls an' our other pawficipants in Team Lounging.

Team Loungers wanted!

Time's a-wastin' blogosphere buddies!  The end date for entries into the Team Lounging competition in the 2012 Cat-O-Lympics is July 13th.  Have you got what it takes to be a medalist in this rigorous event?  Do you lounge with aplomb?  Are you a marathon-caliber lounger?  Do you lounge with your eyes closed in groups of two or more?  Can you lounge through bouts of flashy box documentation from your human(s)?  Do YOU wanna be a winner with bragging rights all over the interwebs?

It could be YOU atop the Olympic winners' platform for efurryone to see!  Convince your human(s) to use their flashy boxes to document your lounging efforts an' do it quickly 'cuz time is running out!

Send your domentation photographs to DaisyMae Maus via email:  daisymaemausATyahooDOTcom by Friday, July 13th to enter!

Random Felines are Team Lounging!

Today's entry in the Team Lounging event in the 2012 Cat-O-Lympics is from the Random Felines:  (featured from top to bottom -- Mozart, Ivy, and Tommy).  As you can see, they are making good use of a carpeted cat tree for their team lounge.  All three are ... in fact ... sound asleep (an' their momma guarantees that all six eyes are firmly shut).

I must say that I am really enjoying this effort by the Random Felines 'cuz I think I might have a crush on their cat tree (mine is smaller and seems to be perpetually coated in Charmee's furs).

If you look at the documentation photo provided here, each member of the team is lounging differently yet making full use of the three distinct lounging nests.

Those who wanna check out the Random Felines an' follow their non-Olympic exploits can find them at their bloggie -- Random Felines.

Team Lounging with Truffle an' Brulee!

Representing the Gamecock State, from Sweet Purrfections, we have a Team Lounging entry featuring those Southern debutantes, Truffle an' Brulee.  The ladies are sleepin' at the foot of the bed while their four co-competitors lounge at the top of the photo near the pillows.
