Crotchety Cougars Win Big Time Part 3

ANGEL KALI:  Do you remember when we started the Crotchety Cougars, Phoebs?  We weren’t sure anybody’d join but figured we’d like to do fun stuff even if it was just us.  We needed to vent with others that understood what we missed from the past and how we saw life now.                                                                  

 ANGEL PHOEBE:  We did have fun, Kali, and the other gals just made the club better.  I really don”t pole dance very much and I should or I’ll forget how.                                                                        Ladies, tell us why you joined the Crotchety Cougars.  Let’s start with you Binky.                                                                   

BINKY:  I remember that I saw the badge of the CCC (Crotchety Cougar Club) 15+ on a few bloggies and thought, what kind of club is that? Is it a decent one? I knew angel Pheobe was a pole dancer, so that could be a like fifty shades of red club, or are we in yarn every time we visit? All those questions got my curiosity at work, I just had to find a way to sneak around in the club, without letting anyone know, but I only was 14, so they wouldn’t let me in and I had to wait. That was a long wait, I can tell you! Then angel Phoebe invited me at the club when I finally went 15 and I couldn’t wait to wear that special hat, that all the members wear and to find out FINALLY what really happens in that club…All the Ladies and one Buddy guard who are just like me, old cougars that only want to have fun with each other… and over each other…. and my answer was YES… immediately and I had a real good time, with all of them.  I have seen a few of my furriends going to furrever land, but with the bond that we’ve shared, I know that we will see each other again one day *looks at the sky*.

How bout you Madi.                                                           

 Madi:  I agree with Binky.  A place for us cougars to hang out is what I was looking for.  Age is just a number and I want to see everything and do everything possible….the journey is what it’s all about cougars.  So look out world here we come!

SASHA:  I was invited to join the Crotchety Cougars  at the age of 16 by my friend Phoebe. Phoebe’s Mom, Ellen, helped Phoebe compose a note that read: “Sasha, welcome to the Crotchety Cougars. Love Phoebe” which she sent along with the red hat symbolic of the club.  I just HAD to be a crotchety cougar.  I turned 17 on January 10, 2017                                                                                                                   

ALI:  I became a crotchety cougar because well I am one. I am 17 now and just a wee bit spoiled. Mom is finally trained to do what I want first and then we’ll talk about what she wants. mol Some, if not all of the cougars are Cat Scouts as well so I, have  furriends here.  It is a fun, safe place for us older female kitties to hang out and be ourselves.

Well, Amber, Binga and Sarabi, did you join for similar reasons?

Amber
Binga
SARABI

SARABI:  We agree with the previous cougars. Fun was key to the Crotchety Cougars.

Angel Ellie: Oh, oh, we’re late for our exercise class. Let’s go girls.                                                              
AMBER: C’mon let’s sweat to our song…..”♫ Cougars just wanna have fun.♫”  Swing them hips and shake your booty, ya!!

ANGEL PHOEBE:  Angels, what do you think about having a branch of the Crotchety Cougars at the Bridge?

ANGEL KALI:  Let’s go for it!  We’ll stay at the Bridge and have a bunch of the angels join us.   We’ll have the club going strong by the time the others get to the Bridge.  We can always come and visit you cougars in your sleep.  All you have to do is think of us and we’ll show up when you close your eyes.

Angels Kit, Ellie, and Lily Olivia agree.

BUDDY:  Ladies. Ladies!  Hey shut up and listen, I say!  The angels are leaving for the bridge so let’s head to bed and sees them in our dreams ya, I said our dreams.                                                       

ANGEL KALI, ELLIE, KIT, LILY O and PHOEBE:….Goodnight cougars, see you in your dreams.  * The angels take a jump off the ship and are swept upwards…*

Crotchety Cougars Win Big Time Part 2

ANGEL LILY OLIVIA:  Look at this ship.  Reminds me of the tales my furry mama would tell us kits about our Uncle Smackabutt.  He was a real ladies man.  He had a she-cat in every port and they all cried whenever he left for another adventure aboard the ship, Loon A Sea.  Mama says he was quite the looker too.  He had whiskers that were long and slender…they drove girlcats wild.  His furs were soft like a baby’s butt.  That’s how he got his name of Smackabutt cause after you touched his furs you just wanted to smack that silky butt.  What a guy!                                                                  

ANGEL KIT:  He sounds like the type of mancat our mom warned us about.  A carefree gigolo that would get us in the family way and then look for better pickins’ elsewhere.  A real rounder!  Figures, you’d have weird kin, Angel Lily O.                                                              

ANGEL LILY O.  I suppose you had hard-working parents and kin!  Nobody interesting in your family, eh, Angel Kit.

ANGEL KALI:  Knock it off you two.  We all have colourful characters in our families.  Now let’s focus on our ship cruise.  What’s the name of this ship?                                                                            

ANGEL PHOEBE: Hey Angel Kali this ship is the best in the Catanna line.                                                                        The ship’s called the Floating Furball.  This ship is huge!

BUDDY: Let’s get changed and have a rousing game of shuffle board. Anyone ready to be beat to a pulp, pulp, pulp with a shuffling board?

SARABI…I am more than ready to take you on, you grey chicky. mol

BUDDY: Who’s youse callin’ a chicky, you little spotted dick? hehe. I made a funny!

SARABI:  I have stripes not spots…oh I see you’re going to call me a striped dick.  You’re odd, Buddy.  I’ll bet you 10 treats and a nip leaf I can beat you at shuffling the board.

BUDDY:  You’re on, Stripes!                                                                        

BINKY:  Wait, Buddy’s not here, yet.  Oh I see, Buddy’s taking the picture.  A bit too much nip and sun. MOL                                                                     

SARABI: Hey, grey chick-hen, we tied. Next time I’ll beat the feathers off you chicky breath.

BUDDY: That’s not gonna happen Stripes. Nyet, nyet and nyet again. My Russian is shining through.

BINGA: Anybody up for Karaoke. I feel a song comin’ on.

SASHA:  My aunt got her husband with karaoke.  She was singin’, “A Cat of Many Colours” when she fell off the stage.  My future uncle had a front table and rushed to help her up.  He was a proud member of the Royal Felines Try First Aid (RFTFA).  My aunt was ok except for some scratches caused by my uncle when he examined her.  He was kinda excited.  The rest is history.                                                                     

ANGEL PHOEBE: What’ll we sing that says it all.

ANGEL KALI: I got it. How about, “I’ve Got a Cougar By The Tail?”

  ♫ I’ve got a cougar by the tail, it’s plain to see;
I won’t be much when you get through’ with me
Well, I’m a losing weight and a turnin’ mighty pale
Looks like I’ve got a cougar by the tail

Well, I thought the day I met you, you were meek as a lamb;
Just the kind to fit my dreams and plans
But now, the pace we’re livin’ takes the wind from my sails
And it looks like I’ve got a cougar by the tail

I’ve got a cougar by the tail, it’s plain to see;
I won’t be much when you get through’ with me
Well, I’m a losing weight and a turnin’ mighty pale
Looks like I’ve got a cougar by the tail

Well, ev’ry night you drag me where the bright lights are found;
There ain’t no way to slow you down
I’m as ’bout as helpless as a leaf in a gale;
And it looks like I’ve got a cougar by the tail

I’ve got a cougar by the tail, it’s plain to see;
I won’t be much when you get through’ with me
Well, I’m a losing weight and a turnin’ mighty pale
Looks like I’ve got a cougar by the tail.♫

Songwriters: Harlan Howard / Buck Owens

ALLIE:  Yeah!!  Here’s to us.

                                                           

Stay tuned for Part 3 after everyone gargles with Niperine to soothe their crackling mews.

NEWS ON BINKY

ANGEL KALI  Cougars, there is good news on the Binky front.  She is holding her own. All our purring has helped. Here is the message from Granny and Binky:

 Thank you my sweet Cougar furriends for all your purrayers and this beautiful card. We have had a quiet weekend and a miracle has happened, I am on my way to recovery. Step by step, but I haven’t had a seizure two days. I’m tired and still a little confused, but Granny says, it takes some time to be your old self again, just give it that time 🙂
Granny purromised to work on my bloggie real soon, but she has to catch up some sleep before she can. Thank you again, all of you. I’m happy that I am still here with you. Love, light and Pawkisses to you all

ALI:  Dang that girl, she scared the hibiscus out of us!

AMBER:  A high paw for further recovery for Cougar Binky.

Bulletin: Binky needs Purrs

We interrupt this cruise to issue a bulletin.  Binky is very sick and needs all of our purrs.

UPDATE FROM GRANNY :

We have been to the Vet’s again, because Little Binky was in a Status epilepticus and she has had an injection with Valium for that. They also gave her medication, but that make her worse, so we keep it with the valium for now. There are not much options anymore, so we are prepared, but will do the best that we can. We are 24/7 around her. I haven’t slept for two days, taking care of Binky and yesterday Grandpaw took over, so I was able to get some sleep yesterday night. Yesterday evening a little miracle happened: she gave her first Binky meow-again, that made us very happy and hopeful and we walked a little in the garden this morning, only a few steps and after that she got a pil and got worse again. So that’s her last pil for now! I’m thankful that she has been lying on my lap today and that I heard her own little voice again. It’s very hard to see her this way, but we do what we can. Please keep praying for her. She needs all the help she can 

This is the time to remember the fun times we had in the past.  We love you Binky.                                                                             

Sistah Binky


Spa Binky

We have our paws crossed for you, Binky.  Whatever happens, know that we are with you.

Crotchety Cougars Win Big Time Part 1

 

MADI:  I won! I won!  I’m a winner.                                     

BINKY:   Yup, you’re a wiener, Madi. MOL  What did you win, Madi and how?                                                 

MADI:  I won a trip around the world on the Catanna Line.  It was a quiz about felines.  Can you imagine?  A quiz about us. mol  The best thing is I can take friends on the cruise.  That’s all you girls!

SARABI:  What about our angels and Buddy?  Can they come too?                                             

ALI:  I’m not going anywhere unless the angels and Buddy can come with us.                                                              

MADI:  I totally agree, we are a 13 pack, a baker’s dozen.  Right, with Angel Ellie we are a generous baker’s dozen. mol  When I won they said I could bring up to 10 guests so you’re all in.  The angels don’t need a room so we don’t have to worry about them.  They can pop on and off at will.

AMBER:  Yipee, we’re on our way to….?  Where are we going?                                                           

MADI: Everywhere….each place is a surprise.

BUDDY:  I’s gotta checks with dad.  It sounds so gud,gud, gud.                                                           

ALLIE:  Let’s pack for a forever stay.  We’ll stop at all the ports and if we feel like staying a year or so, we will.  How does that sound ladies?

COUGARS:  Oh my!!  Chattering breaks out with everyone.  No one’s listening.

ANGEL ELLIE:  I love the idea of floating around and visiting different places.  You gals will love it.                                                          

BUDDY:  Dad says to do what makes me happy.  This cruise will make me very happy.

BINGA:  I’m for it, let’s meet here tomorrow after we have our affairs tucked away.                                                           

SASHA:  Agreed, Binga.  Let’s go, ladies, an adventure awaits.  You too Buddy.                                                                      

ANGEL KALI: *Swoops down and locks the clubhouse after everyone heads off to pack for their trip of a lifetime.*

Stay tuned for part 2 when the packing’s done.

Gossip Clatch with Buddy and the Cougars

What a month May was.  We had birthdays coming out our ying yang. mol  There was Allie, Ali, Madi, me…Angel Kali and Ellie.  That’s 5 of us.  We were Spring babies.  I don’t want to talk about my age so from now on I’ll be ageless.                                                                    

ANGEL KIT:  Well glory be to Sylvester’s ghost, I for one am glad all the hoopla is over.  This being on my best behaviour is a pain in the pazubiac.  Give me room to relax and spread out not uptight and smiling like some sortof Chesire Cat.                                                               
Now, I ask you, do I look like grinning is a favourite past time of mine?

BINGA:  You sure don’t appear to be joyous and happy.  Woops, that’s feelings for Christmas.  You get the idea Angel Kit.  Smiling is for kittens.  They have no idea what’s going on and everything makes them happy.  How about that twerp at your house Angel Kali, she’s driving your sister crazy with attacks from every corner and sneak a flying attacks.  All this and she’s just a ball of white fluff.  Not very scary I’d say.                                                                

AMBER: I don’t know. Persistence is the key and if this Tyebe character keeps pushing everything, that could be a real nuisance. We kitties aren’t used to some furry right in our faces 24/7. Unless we gave birth to it. Your sister must put this, ‘Tyebe kangaroo down boy…’ into her place.  No if ands or butts about it!


She’s just a kitten. It’s not like she’s going to plot against your sis Angel Kali.  Let’s take a peek at them through our magic TV.                                                                             
ANGEL PHOEBE:  Look at that white ball of fluff, she’s standing up to Shoko despite being thrown on the floor several times.  You can tell she’s been thrown several times by her white fur.  It’s standing on end.  She looks like a demon from hell-o to me.                                                               

Angel Lily Olivia:  This little gal has spunk.  Is she a red head like you Angel Kali?  Yep, but I was so easy going.  You were the exception to the rule then.  Tyebe is a true red head and loaded for a tussel.  I was never like this, I was a loving kitten so I find it hard to relate.

The Cougars mew so hard at Angel Lily Olivia’s statement that they have to take a sip of nip tea and wipe the happy tears from their eyes.

SARABI:  Gosh, Angel Lily O. thanks for the laugh.

ANGEL LILY OLIVIA:  It’s true….REALLY!  You never met a more gentle and helpful kitten.

BUDDY:  Stop, stops Angel Lily O.  I haves trouble keeping my pee in checks at the bestest of times but you are making me go. mol  You’s so funny Angel Lily O.                                                                         

BUDDY:  Heys friends, see ya next time when we’ll see if Tyebe is really a cat from hell and if Shoko packed her bags to hit the road.

 

Happy Birthday Allie and Angels

We celebrate 2 angels birthdays and a beauty of a Cougar.  Well, seeing as Angel Ellie is Allie’s twin…..they are both beautiful.  This is Angel Ellie and Allie’s 16th birthday.  So we must celebrate.  Mau is Allie’s hubby and his heart is aflutter with love for her.                                      

Allie

Angel Ellie

 

Do I hear any advice for Allie from our Cougars?

BINGA:  I sure do!  Allie, never let your fur down completely, always remain a tad mysterious.  You will make peeps wondering what you’re going to do and Mau will always be by your side, curious

ANGEL KALI:  You know the value of being mysterious.  She always has Buddy’s love and it guided her steps when she was here with us and now…..well now she is guiding Buddy.  One day we will all meet again until then we have our memories and love to keep us warm.                                                  

Now let’s chow down with some wonderful foods like Wild Pacific Salmon                                  

Beef

Hey, we’re not amused!                                                            That’s more like it…Filet Mignon wrapped in bacon.

Drinks Galore.  Each drink has a double dose of nip.  Angel Kali’s drink has double the oregano.  SARABI:  Allie and angels, always be happy cause you never know who could be watching.  You may lighten someone’s path with a smile.

AMBER:  Remember ladies, Learning is a gift,  Even when pain is your teacher.  We learn a lot from trying to handle pain.

ALI:   It is true…you are one of a kind.

MADI:  

You want the most fun people around you.

SASHA:  Ladies…                      This says it all!

BINKY: 

Happy 16th Cougars.
