Merci and the Royals

Hey, Merci here.  Do I look cold to you?  I feel cold.  I'm so glad winter will soon be over.   The wind is really blowing today, but at least it isn't snowing, as it is in some areas.

Buddy asked me to tell you he's feeling much better that he was, even though he was stabbed ... uh, vaccinated Monday.  His skin is healing well.  He does have the occasional itch and scratch or chew, but nothing like what he was going through!   Buddy was even playing with a tennis ball the other night, something he hasn't done in 6 years. He was only two when Miss Mother (our name for Jan's mother) died but he grieved - and aged.

We love good news and this definitely qualifies!  We are so glad the Royals will soon be safe and headed to their new homes. 

You can read the update on them - CB Update on Emily, Brutus and Marigold.

We'd sure love to hear some news of how ML is doing and any progress on Rose's final arrangements.  She's had two falls so news is scarce.

And speaking of the Royals, this was posted by Dorian Wagner on Facebook.

UPDATE:  Sorry, we forgot to post this update yesterday. The last leg was filled when two drivers offered to drive an extra hour each.  Bless them for this generous gift to all the kitties riding the transport Sunday.  But drivers are always needed.  Sign up today, if you would like to participate.

Anybody know anyone around here? We need ONE little leg covered for an insanely fabulous kitty-saving transport this weekend -- that includes The Royals! ♥

**Savannah, GA to Manning, SC - Saturday, March 9 in the afternoon**

Please share far and wide! Ask them to fill out this form if they can so I see:


This is the link for the form to fill out -

They can always use a reliable transport driver and the Royals are very dear to the CB's heart.


  1. We in Grace's household are waiting impatiently to hear that Emily and Marigold and Brutus are safely in their new homes. We are VERY impatient!

    We have also been sending text messages to ML to see how she's doing and sending get well wishes ... no answer yet, but we won't give up! We also think Paula Gregg has the best chance of hearing from ML, so we keep looking for her posts on Fb.

    Magnificent work, everyone ... donations, prayers, purrs, more donations, plans, action, etc., etc.!!
