Here is Dragonhearts proverb:
If at first your humans don't tend to your needs, meow and meow again.
Here is my new proverb:
~THE HEAVYSIDE LAYER~
Sweet and softly little cat, how I wonder where your at.
Up above the stars so bright,like an Angel in the night.
Sweet and softly little cat, I'm so comforted knowing that.

...the very first one that came to our (Willie & Bianca's) minds is:
There are only twenty-four hours in a nap.
We asked Sadie for her contribution, and one of the things you probably don't know about her is that she is very spiritual. She wanted to share her favorite parable:
Morris 5:37,38 "No one puts new clean litter into dirty old litter boxes, or else the new litter will touch the poo poo parts, and it will be stinky, and the clean litter will be skanky. But new litter must be put into clean litter boxes, and both are good. No cat having scratched new litter immediately desires old, for he says, ‘The new is better.’ "

July 18, 2007: When I think of a Sphynx.
A Sphynx is a cat,
a quite mysterious breed....
and if you don't believe that,
I have proof of it indeed!
The story begins in Egypt,
as this papyrus clearly shows.
She is every bit fantastic
from her head down to her toes!
A mighty ancient sentinel
gazing out across the sands.
On duty still today... fulfilling
a young cats dreams so grand!poem by Miss Peach >(^,^)< This is LIZA, she belongs to my friend Diana Nelson! LIZA is #2 Sphynx Premier in CFA nationwide! Someday I hope for a kitten:)

What is another name for the Sphynx breed? Moonstone Cats, Canadian Sphynx, Canadian hairless, hairless cat, hairless kitten, Bald Cat, Toronto Ghost Cat
What was the name of the Sphynx cat character in the Austin Powers movies, and what is the cat's real name? The cat who played Mr. Bigglesworth is a Sphynx named SGC Belfry Ted Nude-gent.
These Sphynx kitties belong to my friend Jacqui who lives in Devon England. They are Willow (top) and Molly!
List the colours of the following cats:
1)Me: Black & White (and pinkJ ) your toes are pink, although your paw pads are both pink and gray. Your tail is gray.
2)My sire: Obi Wan Kenobi, a brown classic tabby and white Sphynx
3)My dam: Sherazade , a blue point Sphynx
According to the CFA (Cat Fanciers' Association) what breeds can be used as outcrosses when breeding Sphynx?
Breeders in Europe and North America have bred the Sphynx to normal coated cats and then back to hairless for more than thirty years. Hairless cats found in recent years in domestic cat litters are still being used in Sphynx breeding programs to expand the gene pool. Britanya Cattery has been using a hairless cat's offspring found in Texas. Donna Roberds of Kattewyk Cattery has been using a hairless cat found in Arkansas. A breeding between these two cats produced extremely hairless offspring. Two hairless cats found in Indiana are reportedly being used in other Sphynx breeding programs.
Until when can these breeds be used? Until December 30, 2010
Sphynx were at one time crossbred with Devon Rex in an attempt to strengthen the gene, but unfortunately this led to serious dental or nervous-system problems and is now forbidden in most breed standards associations. The only allowable outcross breeds in the CFA are now the American Shorthair and Domestic Shorthair. Other associations have different rules. In Europe mainly Devon Rex has been used for outcrosses.
In Europe, what breed has been used most often as an outcross? The Devon Rex
Name three themes that my breeder has used for her litters, and give the name of one cat from each of these themes.
1) Fairy Tales: Merlin & Dragonheart
2) Starwars: Yoda, Han-Solo, Skywalker, Obi-Wan-Kenobi
3) Around the World: Sidney Dundee, Meshika Azteka
4)Action Movies, Basic Instinct
Oh my gosh Caylynn! Come see what happened to Dragonheart!!
Mr Mills!!! What did you do to my poor sweet kitty boy?
I put some of your sunscreen on him so he wouldn't get a sunburn...
That wasn't sunscreen!! It was wrinkle remover!
Well not only did it remove ALL of his wrinkles, it removed HALF of Dragonheart too!!
German words for these are:
Cat: Die Katze oder der Kater
Kitten: Das Katzchen
Cat Food: Das Katzenfutter
Cat Litter: Das Katzenstreu
Litterbox: Die Katzentoilette oder Das Katzenklo
Scratching Post: Der Kratzbaum,Die Kratzmatte,Der Kratzpfosten

This lovely girl is Miss Nola. She lived in a small paradise called Cape Cod with my dear friend Anita and her husband Dave.
She was a good mommy cat to Zydeco and Spike. They wandered through her gardens above the beach and marshes, running and playing with delight for many seasons.
If I go away
What would still remain of me?
The ghost within your eyes?
The whisper in your sighs?
And I'm always there
Karla, What a wonderful surprise I had this morning!! Suddenly before my eyes was Nola! Oh my friend, Dave and I both cried. Our girls being seen by people all over the world. And such a lovely poem. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you.
Still teary eyed,
