Hi Everyone, did you miss me? I’ve been sick since before Christmas so that’s one of the reasons I didn’t post. I got this neat Christmas gift. It’s called a No Sew Blanket with the design Snowman with the words Let It Snow. So what exactly is a No Sew Blanket? It’s a craft kit that comes with 2 blankets and you attempt to understand the directions(my definition). It took my youngest sister’s family to literally show me what to do because the directions weren’t clear—no surprise there. Below is a picture of the finished product.
Hello and Welcome Everyone. Today I would like talk about a pet subject we don’t often talk about. Don’t know what I’m talking about. The subject I’m talking about is Animal Bites.
WHY I’M WRITING THIS ARTICLE
Why am I writing this article? Well… I’m writing this article so others know what to do and what not to do. I hope you can learn from these experiences. Whether it’s a Dog, Cat, Snake, Guinea Pig or some other animal you really need to be careful. One thing you need to do is be alert of your surroundings, your neighbor’s pets actions and your pet’s actions.
What do I mean? Well let me tell you my experience then I will tell you about my friend’s experiences. First my experience.
2 or 3 years ago in the Spring/Summer I had decided to go for a short walk because the sun was shining and it was a gorgeous day. That gorgeous day turned into a bad day for me, 2 of of my neighbors and 5 cats. Let me start from the beginning. As I said previously it was a gorgeous day. I had just started out on a short walk. To say the least, I didn’t get far. 2 sidewalk squares if I was lucky. Now when I go for a walk I always look around. I try to be alert of what’s around me. Now my one neighbor had at least one big dog. It looked liked a Black Lab. I had seen it before many times. I wasn’t even close to that house so I really didn’t worry. I was looking around when I saw 2 dogs going after my neighbor. I’m thankful someone was with him or he would’ve been on the ground. Once I saw both dogs out of the corner of my eye, they were up in front of me in no time. When the dog that I thought was a Pit-Bull Mix started going after me and trying to bite then eventually did bite me, I screamed bloody murder. How loud is that? Well both my parents were inside the house and I screamed so loud they heard me. When Dad came out and saw what was going on, he came and rescued me then once he was back up on the Front Porch he took a thick piece of wood to keep the dogs away from him. Please understand, he didn’t hit these dogs with the thick piece of wood. However, we eventually found out from my neighbor two doors down that he got bit on the ankle by the one dog. I think it was a Pit-Bull mix. Anyhow his one kid rescued him. How? I’m not exactly sure. I do know his wife took a picture of the injured ankle.
I do know called the dog person. That was useless. So Dad Called the Police. That was useless too. The policeman we got was in “vacation mode”. He was getting ready to go on vacation. Of Course he didn’t get back to us. The woman he did get to talk to well she refused to tell him what to do. Which was probably good.
This happened on Labor Day or there about on Labor Day. Do you know what’s it like to see your Dad go outside to meet everyone and tell them they have to stay on the Front Porch or stay inside. My niece and her boyfriend at the time had enough respect to stay for awhile but not as long they would’ve. They left early.
We tried to do something but got told since we had no pictures they could do nothing. Did they come for the dogs? OH they came. In fact, the policeman that came had the nerve to get the dogs in the back of the police car then turn around and tell us the dogs weren’t mean with him. Well of course not if you have treats. I wonder what would’ve happened if he didn’t have those treats. Later on we found out the person’s name(which I will not name) and that she was a veteran. She worked 3 jobs. One of those jobs was at a bar. Sadly, we also found out these dogs killed 5 cats.(4 kittens and mamma cat). Then we found out a few weeks later that these dogs got out again and almost killed a dog. The dog was severely injured.
What Have We Learned?
1.) Don’t make eye contact(peripheral or otherwise).
2.) You must take pictures of bite on you or have your doctor or nurse take the pictures.
3.) If you or your neighbors have kids to do something you must have proof(also in pictures).
4.) Police and dog person are more interested in cases that involve minors rather than adults.(At least that was the case with me).
5.) We found out to rescue someone you can use a gun(not recommended and always use as last resort).

We are here because of the 9TH ANNUAL PET BLOGGER CHALLENGE. Why look back on the previous year(2018)? I think that if we do that we can not only usher 2018 out properly but look on what good we accomplished for the animals. I ask you to join us for the PET BLOGGER CHALLENGE. To learn more you can go to GO PET FRIENDLY . The PET BLOGGER CHALLENGE goes through January 20-26. If you would like to read, compare or both my post for the PET BLOGGER CHALLENGE can be found by clicking HERE. Do check last year’s post out. Now onto answer some questions so you can learn a little bit about me and my blogs but first a BRIEF LOOK BACK ON 2018.
LOOKING BACK ON 2018
As I look back on the year 2018, I find that like any blogger I had ups and downs on my blogs. I was on CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE more than WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) since I had some personal issues I had to take care but hope to be on it more in 2019. Now let’s get to those questions.
QUESTIONS FOR THE PET BLOGGER CHALLENGE
1.) For those who may be visiting your blog for the first time, how long have you been blogging and what’s your main topic? I have been blogging for 2 years with WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING)(January 2017) and almost 2 years for CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE(April 2017). My main topic is Animals but I also like to talk about Country Living, Family, Poetry and so much more.
2.) What was your proudest blogging moment of 2018? Reaching my 2 year blogiversary on WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING)(January 2017 – 2019) and my 2nd year blogiversary on CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S SITE(APRIL 2017 – 2019). OK, it runs into 2019 but not very much.
3.) What was the biggest blogging challenge you faced in 2018, how did/will you tackle it? My biggest blogging challenge was dealing with some personal issues and I didn’t blog as much. However, I tried to post at least once a week on at least one of my blogs.
4.) Which of your 2018 blog posts was your favorite and why?I had trouble picking which posts were my favorite so I just chose one. As it happens it comes from CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE. The post is called Friendly Fill – Ins. The link is FRIENDLY FILL – INS . Why? It’s fun and I got good results. specifically, I got 21 comments and 14 likes.
5.) Which of your 2018 posts was most popular with your audience? Why do you think it does so well? Since I took my favorite post from my other site I took the post from my other site. One of my posts that did so well was DAISY MAE’S CAT QUOTES. Why did it do so well? I think it’s because my readers like animals and cats and could relate to the quotes when they read them.
6.) Did you implemented a new series, feature, or practice on your blog in 2018 that you’re enjoying? YES. I do more blog hop posts which are fun, I go to blogs that have blog parties or meet & greets, I’m checking and double checking All comments and I enabled comment moderation on WordPress.
7.) As the social media landscape changes, how are you promoting your blog posts and connecting with new readers? I’m currently on Google+ and LinkedIn. I’m. I also have all the WordPress sharing buttons so Others and myself can share. I’m attending more blog hops which gets me in touch with other readers. I also try to attend blog parties too.
8.) Looking forward to 2019, if you accomplish only one thing through your blog, what do you hope it is? Learning how to code. I tried in 2017 and 2018 with no luck.
9.) What steps are you planning to take to ensure you reach your goal? Keep Trying.
10.) Now it’s your turn! How can we help? Is there an area where you could use some advice,or an aspect of your blog you’d like input on? Coding, How to get guest authors to write posts after they accepted(not the ones who accepted but then contacted you with a reason they couldn’t do it). All SEO.
Here’s a selfie of a kitty cat surprised to get its picture on “Kitty Camera”. I’m not sure if this cat was trying to make a quick get a way since it’s a “cat burglar”. HAHA, LOL.

Welcome everyone. I’m back for another edition of my famous Cat quotes. Those you’ll find below.
1.) Cats’ hearing apparatus is built to allow the human voice to easily go in one ear and out the other.
2.) A cat sees no good reason why it should obey another animal, even if it does stand on two legs.
3.) Many cats simply pounce to their own drummers.
4.) Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil, and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well.
5.) Cats keep their cool, no matter what. Even when they do things like fall or lose their balance, they’ll walk away with an attitude that seems t o say, “I meant to do that.”
6.) Prowling his own quiet backyard or asleep by the fire, he is still only a whisker away from the wilds.
7.) A cat will do what it wants when it wants, and there’s not a thing you can do about it.
8.) There are hundreds of good reasons for having a cat, but all you need is one.
9.) If cats seem distant and aloof it is because this is not their native planet—they are here just to visit and dominate.
10.) The cat always leaves a mark on his friend.
11.) Nature abhors a vacuum, but not as much as cats do.
12.) There is one way in which cats differ from all other animals, and that is in the effect they have on human beings.
13.) A kitten is chiefly remarkable for rushing about like mad at nothing whatsoever and generally stopping before it gets there.
14.) To bathe a cat takes brute force, perseverance, courage of conviction—and a cat. The last ingredient is usually hardest to come by.
15.) I don’t mind a cat, in its place. But its place is not the middle of my back at 4 a.m.
—Maynnard Good Stoddard
16.) You are my cat, and I am your human.
17.) Cats never feel threatened. They are genetically incapable of accepting that anyone could possibly dislike anything as perfect as a cat.
18.) Personally, I don’t believe felines are a fad. We’re here to stay.
—Morris the Cat

What’s any dressing up as tonight? The Queen Mom was going to dress up as an Eskimo with no makeup now she is dressing up as something scarier —herself with no makeup. That’s scarier trust me. As for me, I don’t dress up. Below is what the Queen Mom’s Halloween outfit would’ve been. Please let us know what you dressed up as and about all the treats you got.

HI EVERYONE, DAISY MAE here once again with another edition of DAISY MAE’S CAT QUOTES. Sorry it’s been so long but us cats have so much to do. Anyhow did you miss me??? Well without further adieu let’s get on with my cat quotes.
The purr from cat to man says, “You bring me happiness; I am at peace with you.”
—-Barbara L. Diamond
It is in their eyes that their magic resides.
The cat is domestic only as far as suits its own ends.
—-Saki (H.H. Munro)
The cat who doesn’t act finicky soon loses control of his owner.
—-Morris the Cat
A cat will show his love by ignoring you and then curling up next to you when you need it most.
A cat doesn’t know what it wants and wants more of it.
Essentially, you do not so much teach your cat as bribe him.
The way to keep a cat is to try to chase it away.
The eyes of a cat will wax and wane with the phases of the moon.
A cat, though independent, has a way of letting you know that without you life just wouldn’t be worthwhile.
It doesn’t do to be sentimental about cats; the best ones don’t respect you for it.
If you put down food and the cat eats, it’s hungry. If it doesn’t, it isn’t.
Most cats are not shy about letting their people know what they want.
Life is hard. Soften yours with a cat.
Experience is valuable in most human endeavors, but the problem of getting a cat down out of a tree is new every time it arises.
Who hath a better friend than a cat?
It is remarkable, in cats, that the outer life they reveal to their master is one of perpetual confident boredom.
—-Robley Wilson Jr.
A cat stretches from one end of my childhood to the other.
Cats have intercepted my footsteps at the ankle for so long that my gait, both home and on tour, has been compared to that of a man wading through low surf.
—-Roy Blount Jr.
The ideal of calm exists in a sitting cat.
Cats know not how to pardon.
—-Jean de la Fontaine
To respect the cat is the beginning of the aesthetic sense.
Were made of fur
And sun warmed you,
A cat doesn’t “roll” well with a change of someone else’s making.
If a cat did not put a firm paw down now and then, how could his human remain possessed?

#REMEMBER ME THURSDAY is remembering those pets we love and how we enjoyed them. Sound sad well maybe a little or you can do what I’m going to do and tell your unique store how you adopted or rescued your pet.
My story is very unique because you don’t hear what I’m about to write about happening to often. My story is about how my family and rescued my current pet, a cat named Daisy Mae. Please enjoy this true story.
HOW DAISY MAE WAS RESCUED
How Did We Rescue Daisy Mae? Well when they say a cat chooses you and you don’t choose a cat they’re right. It all started one night when my parents brought me home from work. Where I work was 25+ miles away. They were telling me on the way home they thought they could hear a kitten meowing but couldn’t see it. They didn’t have time to look at that time but when I opened the car door my mother said to me, I wonder if we can still hear that kitten we thought we heard? As I walked out of the garage I could heard a loud meowing. So since we had the time we looked and looked around the area where we heard the meowing and after a while we found this black and white kitten that was no bigger than my Dad’s hand.
We all knew what had to be done but there was slight problem. We already had a cat and we knew she wouldn’t be happy with a kitten invading her space. So we fed this kitten and put her in a cage since dad said he wouldn’t let another animal in the house until “Pigs Fly”. Mom and I were convinced but the kitten had to convince Dad. So we fed her, gave her water and kept her warm.
Then around September 12, we were having my nephew’s 4th birthday party at our house and of course the kids wanted to see the kitten. We wanted to name the kitten so we let the kids choose a name for the kitten. Since you never know what kids will come up with we just waited to see what name they came up with and surprisingly there were no crazy name suggestions. They all agreed on Daisy Mae.
Since we had an old garage at the time, it was common to see snakes and/or Snakeskin in the garage. But when my sisters and dad told the rest of us they saw a big snake in the rafters we laughed at them and said yeah right. Guess What? 🐷🐷🐷🐷🐷🐷Pigs flew that night sometime because my Dad said that’s it I’m saving Daisy Mae and she’s coming in the house.🐷🐷🐷🐷🐷🐷 We tried to keep Daisy Mae in a very large cage and we put the cage by the register and covered it with a blanket to keep her warm at night. What happened next is actually funny. The cage was large enough but the openings on the side of the cage were large enough that she could get through. We found that out when she came upstairs. That’s when we started putting a blanket over top of the cage so she wouldn’t get out at night.
We were very fortunate to get to see Daisy Mae’s mother a couple of times. We saw her when Daisy Mae’s mother came to make sure her little kitten had found a good home. Daisy Mae’s Mother was black and white just like Daisy Mae. She was beautiful.
When Daisy Mae got older but still a kitten and bigger, we knew we didn’t want to introduce our senior Tabby cat, Tigger and Daisy Mae who I’ve found out is probably a Tuxedo cat. We knew we had to do something so we discussed several options and the best option was Dad’s idea. He suggested we put up a screen door and lock the Dining room door to separate both cats for a while. This idea worked then after quite some time we finally introduced both cats to each other and the result was just a little hissing from the senior cat and no hissing from Daisy Mae.
Tigger our senior cat who didn’t play and exercise much started playing and exercising again when Daisy Mae started playing with Dad. Tigger’s personality changed too. She mellowed a lot.
Tigger was in her last days and that was becoming more and more obvious by the day and the best we could do is keep Tigger comfortable. Sadly her time came the morning of September 11, 2015 when she went to the Rainbow Bridge. Tigger was a rescued cat too. Tigger was rescued in the sense we got her out of a bad situation.
I’m happy both cats got furever homes with us. Better yet we still have Daisy Mae 12 years and 15 days.
As you see in the pictures above her muzzle, ears and between her eyes are rubbed raw. She bites a lot, itches, a lot, digs her ears a lot, she rubs a lot and licks a lot. We had her to the vet and the vet couldn’t do much for us. The vet did give her antibiotic shot and a steroid shot which helped for 1 month and that is it. My family and I suspect that Daisy Mae has skin allergies. What is anybody else’s thoughts. I’m at a loss that is for sure. Sometimes it gets so bad we put Neosporin cream on to help her and she hates that.
It has come to my attention that people can’t find the badge to get. If you want the badge I’ll provide it again below. Remember, Double click on the badge to save it. I hope this clears up things and remember link back to me. You are great people .
Hello Everyone Daisy Mae here since Queen Mom Deputy Sister Crystal(Boy that’s a mouthful to say). Glad Queen Mom doesn’t make me say that all the time. Since the Queen Mom taught me to blog so I can take over when I’m needed. I had hoped that time wouldn’t come for a long, long time but sadly wouldn’t you know the Queen Mom came sooner than I hoped. The Queen Mom came and asked me last month and of course I said I would help out by taking over.
Why isn’t the Queen Mom here you ask? She got sick a few months back and finally recovered then wouldn’t you know she gets sick again—BUMMERAMMA!! Enough about the Queen Mom and let’s get on with why I’m here. I’m here for DAISY MAE’S CAT QUOTES. YEAH!!!! One more thing,Don’t be angry with the Queen Mom(AKA Sister Crystal) if she doesn’t get to visit your blog for a while. She’s sick so she has a good excuse. Please Give Her A Break.ENJOY!!
The cat is the only animal which accepts the comforts but rejects the bondage of domesticity.
Comte de Buffon
I had been told that the training procedure with cats was difficult. It’s not. Mine had me trained in two days.
A cat has a reputation to protect. If it had a halo, it would be worn cocked to one side.
One must love a cat on its own terms.
There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast.
The real measure of a day’s heat is the length of a sleeping cat.
—Charles J. Brady
As we all know, cats rule the world.
—John R.F. Breen
When my cats aren’t happy, I’m not happy. Not because I care about their mood but because I know they’re just sitting there thinking up ways to get even.
—Percy Bysshe Shelley
Cats are kindly masters, just so long as you remember your place.
A cat does not want all the world to love her—only those she has chosen to love.
The last thing I would accuse a cat of is innocence.
A cat is more intelligent than people believe and can be taught any crime.
