R is for Rescued

Hi everyone! Thank you all again for your words of comfort during this difficult time. I am trying to answer all comments on Facebook and here, but it may take me a while. Now Phoebe’s turn.

Today is R day in the A-Z Challenge. Rescued edited by Janiss Garza ( Summer’s human) is one of our favorite books.Rescued Most of you know all about it, but if you haven’t read it, we highly recommend it. We were big fans of Seville’s brother, Nerissa the Cat and his is one of the 12 rescue stories included in this book.

And the winner of The Oscar book is Madi – don’t worry, we will add some crocheted toys for you too Madi. Oscar

I haven’t seen my Grammie in days, she is always with her GREAT grand-daughter. I guess I am chopped liver, I better not say that or Sammy will eat me. I love my Grammie so very much, I wish she thought I was great.


  1. My human says thank you for featuring Rescued – and she is really excited about the second volume of stories she is editing right now!

    1. You’re welcome- I can’t wait to read the next volume. I think she will like the S I have for tomorrow.

  2. You are great…we always come to see you here in your blog!!

    Rescued is a good book, fur sure!

    Maybe when the new wee one starts going to school, your Grammie will spend more time with you once again…we hope!

    1. Awww…thank you, you are such sweet kitties. My Grammie will see me tomorrow and Saturday- yay!

  3. Sweetie, you are great! We will always love you. Please your mom and dad lots of pawpats and pawkisses – they are going through a hard time right now and need you!! Love Toby

  4. Oh Phoebe I’m sure your Grammie does not think you’re chopped liver – I think she is just in love with the new baby (humans are crazy for babies!) but soon I bet she will be visiting you and bringing you some treats! We hope that all of you are less sad with each passing day about Spooky – he’s watching you from the Bridge and hoping that you will feel his love from afar.

    Concats to Madi for winning the Oscar book and some toys – your toys are the BEST!

    Love, Sammy

  5. What a great book to share with us, Phoebe. And don’t worry, we all not only think but know that you’re great (and I’m sure your grammie does, too!). Purrs and prayers to you all!

    1. Aww…thank you- you are so sweet. I like to make Grammie feel guilty so she will bring me treats.

  6. We are certain no-one thinks of you as chopped liver Phoebe so don’t be a silly – it’s just that humans think it’s only them who has a baby.

    1. Thank you- I hope she has lots of treats. I love her very much even without treats though.

  7. Phoebe, you’re so adorable. Of course your grammie loves you and I know that everyone thinks you’re great.

    Thanks for sharing this book!

  8. Oohhh… You are so very sweet to say that. If Nissy were here, he’d be purring up a storm. In fact, I bet he’s purring right now up in Heaven, looking down upon us and reading your blog and smiling from ear to ear. Purrs, Seville.

    1. I hope Nissy and Spooky ( and Lucy and Stinky) are all together having some nip. XO

  9. Oh your Grammy does love you! I’m sure she’s busy and will see you soon. Maybe you’ll get extra treats then! We haven’t read Rescued but I guess we need to add that to our list now too.

    1. Yes, you should add it to your list. I am going to see Grammie tomorrow.

  10. I’ve been hoping the local library will carry a copy of Janiss’s book, but it hasn’t appeared yet. I’ll keep checking! Oh Phoebe, your grammy will stop by soon to lavish love and treats on you, I’m sure of it!

    1. Maybe you could suggest the book to the librarian to get. I am seeing Grammie tomorrow- yay!

  11. It is so good to be reminded of successful rescue stories. Particularly today, when a friend had just told me about some neighbors down the street (no one liked them) who were evicted and left 2 cats in the house… one died, the other is wild in the neighborhood and I’m hoping the local alligators don’t eat it. (That is an actual possibility in FL.)
    Am hoping you recover from the loss of Spooky, soon, though I know there will always be a place in your heart that misses him.

    1. I am so sad that a cat died and one is on his own. I wish those people could be prosecuted.

  12. phoebe…sum times grammies get soooper bizeee…we bet her stops bye two day if her haznt all reddy…..& we bet her gives ewe 2,000 $$$$….ooopz….we meened 2.00 $$$$ …..sillie comma 😉 & conga ratz two madi on winnin de oscar book ….total kewl !!! we iz out til monday; sew heerz two an arrowtooth eel kinda week oh end ♥♥♥

    1. Mom thanks you for the love and hugs. I am seeing Grammie tomorrow. Rescued is a great book. XO and love from me and Mom.

  14. We still haven’t read the Rescue Book with Nissy, but it is still on our wish list. Concats to Madi! Hope you see your Grammie soon, Phoebe. Soft Pawkisses and a big hug for your mommie <3 <3 <3

    1. I hope you get to read the book. I will see Grammie tomorrow. XO and paw kisses for you too sweet Binky.

    Phoebe, we think your Grammie has a special place in her heart just for you 🙂
