Tasty Tuesday: Good Mews for the Holidays

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Before we begin our post, we have sad news to share.  Yesterday, unexpectedly, my remaining feline brother, Puffy, crossed Over the Rainbow Bridge.  We will post a proper tribute on Thursday.  Mom did that text thingie as she left Dr. Schaffer’s to Miss Linda, Savannah’s (my BFF – best feline friend) Mom.  Within half a day, Miss Linda told Miss Ann from Zoolatry, who made a beautiful badge and some of our blogville friends were already sending their thoughtful condolences.  Talk about the Power of the Paw! (POTP)  Thank you so much for wrapping your virtual arms around us.

Puffy and Fluffy gave their paws of approval this year when Mom, wearing her Kitchen Counselor hat, submitted a recipe to Miss Sharon from Good Mews.  Good Mews is a 24 year old no kill, cage free feline shelter in Atlanta.  The cookbook contains 300 recipes from volunteers and supporters.  The cost is $16, click here to purchase a cool holiday gift which helps felines find forever homes.

We remain inspired by the blogville connections that arise from posting and the kindness and good that gets done.

Another great let’s help some felines, day.

Thanks to Sugar and Kol for initiating Tasty Tuesdays, today is our thirty-fourth participating post!

    • Hey Mollie, Hey Alfie, Jetty here.

      Thanks guys. (Mom’s NJ term of endearment.) Aww, thanks on Miss Ann’s behalf… we though so too.

      We hope Good Mews sells lots!

      Thinking of you as well. xoxoxo

  1. We sure are so sorry to hear about Puffy. It is so darn sad to lost a fur friend. Big hugs coming your way.
    That cook book is such a good idea. Hope a lot of copies sell to help those animals in the shelter.
    Take care

  2. Hi sweet Jetty – so sorry to hear about Puffy – I know your Mom gave him a wonderful life full of love and kindess – I think he truly just needed to be with Fluffy at the Bridge. sending big hugs to your family xoxoxo

    • Hey it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Wendy.

      Thanks for your compassionate call to Mom last night. Sorry I was busy wrestling Little Miss Chewminator!

      We think the same in our hearts… they were litter mates and had that special connection.

      Love your hugs, Miss Wendy… thank you xoxoxo

  3. Aw Jet I’m so sorry you lost your BFF.sending you lots of *healingsnoogles* and (((hugs))) to help you feel better…Looks like it’s a good day for cookbooks…my Mom wrote about one today too…Take care my furriend

  4. Mom and I are so sorry to hear about Puffy. It must be an odd feeling to go from 2 cats to being catless. Mom can’t imagine it having had at least one cat in her home since she was 7, I am not sure how I feel being a dog. At least the two are together again, maybe Puffy was just heart broken? Big paw hugs to you and your mom.

    • Hey Emma, Jet here. Hi Katie.

      Yes, this morning was weird… Mom secured the cat door on our gate realizing we didn’t have to watch our tails anymore. Mom realilzed she has shared her homes with felines for the last 30 years with 3 years of exceptions. 😦

      You are wise to think that Puffy and Fluffy needed to be together, we quite agree. Thanks for the hugs. xoxoxo

      • Hey Emma, Jet here. Hi Katie.

        Mom would contemplate (VBP) that idea except we have a bunch of things in this place called (flux – VBP) so, we need to put this in the later pile.

    • Hey Whisppy, Jet here.

      Sorry we have to meet under these circumstances. Thank you for taking the time to write such comforting words to us. We know our brother, Fluffy will be waiting for him to help him cross. This gives us great comfort.

  5. Jet, JJ and Miss Lori,

    I was so sorry and shocked to hear of Puffy’s passing. I feel like I knew him thanks to you, I loved seeing that picture of him drinking from the sink. Fluffy will be happy to see him again and take good care of him.

    Your job Jet is to take good care of your Mom buddy, give her lots of extra loves from us.

    Your pal Snoopy (and Mum)

    • Hey Snoopy, Jet here. Hi Miss Annette.

      So sorry we are just responding to your kind words on Puffy’s passing now. We have been woefully behind in comments. Yes, we really believe that they needed to be reunited, even if it meant over the Rainbow Bridge.

      Oh, I do take care of Mom, promise! 🙂

    • Hey Savvy, Big Guy here. HI Miss Linda.

      Oh yes, we felt them ever since the ladies spoke. Thank you so much… for the badge, for your support, and for being in our lives. 🙂

      Sending Jetty kisses, JJ hugs and lovies from Mom.

  6. Lori, Rachael, Jets and JJ. I am so sorry to hear about Puffy. Losing two is such a short time must be so hard. Our thoughts are with you. Hugs. Rebecca, Jack and Ginger

    Poem For Cats
    Author unknown
    And God asked the feline spirit
    Are you ready to come home?
    Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul
    And, as a cat, you know I am most able
    To decide anything for myself.

    Are you coming then? asked God.
    Soon, replied the whiskered angel
    But I must come slowly
    For my human friends are troubled
    For you see, they need me, quite certainly.

    But don’t they understand? asked God
    That you’ll never leave them?
    That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?
    That nothing is created or destroyed?
    It just is….forever and ever and ever.

    Eventually they will understand,
    Replied the glorious cat
    For I will whisper into their hearts
    That I am always with them
    I just am….forever and ever and ever.

    • Hey Jack, Hey Ginger, Jets here. Hi Miss Rebecca.

      Mom’s got some water in her eyes after reading your beautiful poem, which resonates perfectly.

      Thanks for sharing such meaningful thoughts and comforting words.

    • Hey TMNKH, Jet here. Hi Feeders!

      What a profound saying, would you mind if we share that with others at their time of loss? Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. Hopefully we can get to know you better under happier circumstances. 🙂

      • Not at all! We first started using it years ago and like it so much we have it as a card on our cafepress store. It stems from what what mom’s grandparents taught her as a little girl. Death is part of life, but we’ll all be together later in heaven. Until then, the memories of the love we share helps those of us left behind to wait. And mom found that to be true. You’re still sad, but if you focus on the love, it makes things easier, day by day.

    • Hey Team Tabby, Jet here.

      Please forgive our extreme delay in thanking you for sending such kind words of comfort on the passing of our feline brother,Puffy. We’re adjusting to a house without felines.

  7. Jet, Kirby and mom,
    just want to say we aren’t to good at explaining ourselves all the time in times like this,to ones we care about. But we just want you to know, we care and are here, and are so glad you have so many good blog friends on here to help you along this way. You are truly a great, kind, and caring dog Jet- your ma’s not too bad either 😉
    I am so sorry for your loss, but I know if she was friends with you Jet she must have been a good cat, and without a doubt is perched happily atop a special cloud, made of the softest yarn, and filled with catnip, playing and making new friends. Wishing you lots of healing thoughts and prayers! “We lovez you Jetty!”

  8. Hi Jet,
    We are furrends of Savannah’s and we were so sad to hear about Puffy! We are sending you comforting purrs.
    Kisses from Nellie, Kozmo, the hairy slobbery sisters Bob and Cinnamon and Mommy

    • Hey Nellie, Hey Kozmo, Hey Bob, Hey Cinnamon, Jet here. Hi Mommy.

      Thank you for taking the time to visit us and share comforting purrs and kisses. Please accept our apologies for our incredibly delayed response. We became woefully behind on comments. 😦

  9. Hi Jet – we were so sad to read about Puffy. The acd6pack knows about how much love cats bring to a home. We don’t mention them much, but we have two. Our thoughts are with you at this sad time.

    • Hey ACD6pack, Jet here.

      Please forgive our bad manners, we’ve been digging out of our comment backup!

      Really? We didn’t know you had 2 felines. Thank you for your kind words of support and understanding. 🙂

    • Hey Fred, Hey Gloria, Jet here. Hi Miss Janet.

      Thank you for sending your support. I know, she’s so talented. Miss Linda, from Savannah’s Paw tracks is so thoughtful to have alerted Miss Ann.

  10. Hi Jet, How cool that Savannah is your BFF, her and Scylla are very close and we all just love her here. That cookbook looks purrfectly delightful and we will have to try to buy Mom one for Christmas (she can use all the help she can get in the kitchen). We will be back Thursday to read Puffy’s tribute. Mommy says that they always live in your memories and that if you are really lucky sometimes they come back to visit you when you are half asleep. ~Fenris

    • Hey it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Alasandra, etc…

      Really? Did you meet Savannah in blogville, too?

      Listen, Fenris, I’ll give you a tip, Mom’s the Kitchen Counselor and consults via technology (shocking but true!) and has a free newsletter and FB if Mom has any questions. We think we might buy the book for Mom for Hannukah!!!

      Mom says the same thing about visiting when 1/2 sleeping… 🙂

      Sending thank you Jetty kisses and JJ hugs.

    • Hey Oskar, Jet here. Hi Miss Pam.

      Thank you for taking the time to express your comforting words. We love receiving nubbin wiggles and hugs from you guys. (Mom’s NJ term of endearment.)

  11. Oh, we are so sorry to hear that sweet Puffy crossed The Bridge. Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers. Hugs and nose kisses

  12. I am so, so sorry to read your news about your precious Puffy. I so hope you are finding comfort in your memories of your life together that can never be taken away and in knowing that you’ll see Puffy again one day–And what a beautiful and amazing day that will be…

    • Hey Golden Pines Gang, Jet here. Hi Miss Kim.

      Thank you for sharing such beautiful sentiments regarding our boy. Mom always tells us (and others) to keep your memories in a pocket on your heart. So, that’s what we’re doing.

      • Hey Hiro, Hey Suki, Jet here. Hi Miss Dianda.

        We’re getting there. JJ and I have healed faster than Mom… she occasionally goes to feed Puffy, or finds some fur on something… it’s weird not having felines in the house anymore. 😦

  13. We’re so very sorry that Puffy has crossed the Bridge to be with Fluffy. We’d like to include Puffy in the November issue of Our Rainbow Friends, if you don’t mind. Would you be so kind as to email us with Puffy’s age or date of birth to include in his memorial? And if you have a favorite photo of him you’d like us to use, please attach it. Or we can use Ann’s memorial badge, if you prefer. Thanks for allowing us to honor Puffy.

    • Hey Sherlock, Hey Ash, Hey Traveler, Jet here.

      Thank you for sending so much love our way this week, we really appreciate it. When we saw that you posted Puffy’s badge on your blog, we were stunned and deeply moved. 🙂
