This week I am pleased to highlight some very special and sweet friends from Twitter. Shiva and Jaya and their family are enthusiastic supporters of the Purrs 4 Peace project and have been very supportive friends to Confucius Cat. Jaya is pictured above- What a cutie! I hope they know how much their loving compassion is appreciated. Thank you my darling friends. Shiva and Jaya have an adorable and entertaining blog at www.shivaandjaya.wordpress.com and can be found on Twitter @ShivaandJaya. Now I am pleased to turn this post over to Shiva and Jaya so that you can meet these wonderful furry friends and their family.
We’re Purrime Ministerette Shiva and Purrime Ministerette Jaya. Outside the Houses of Purrliament we like to hang out on the couch, do yoga in our black and white yoga hammock on the heater. Our favorite TV shows include The Sopranos, CSI and The Wire and we’re huge fans of Queen and Mariah Carey.
As Purrime Ministerettes we fully support the Purrs 4 Peace initiative. There is so much misery on Planet Purrth and with purring for peace, we believe we can at least try to take some of all the suffering away. Suffering, ConfuciusCat, we know all about it. In September of 2007 we were found dumped in a glass recycling bin. We don’t know who left us there, but finally we ended up in a warm home (see http://shivaandjaya.wordpress.com/2010/06/25/the-road-to-love). The rest is history…
No, we won’t meow any politics with you. We believe it’s very important to change Planet Purrth for the better, but we would never be able to do that without the support of our beloved furry family members! First we would like to introduce Auntie L.! She’s our one and only canine Auntie and praised for her age and wisdom. You probably won’t believe it, but she’s turning 14 soon. We love her to bits and wouldn’t want to live without her. Auntie L. lives with our grandpurrents. She had a sister who went OTRB in 2008. Auntie L. says she doesn’t miss her sister at all. She just likes to relax and be old and wise. She’s one of our best furriends.
Then we have Auntie T. She’s recently turned 4 and has been through a lot in her young life (see http://shivaandjaya.wordpress.com/2010/07/10/remembering-s). Auntie T. is a very shy kitty and would never approach anyone but the grandpurrents and us. We can kinda relate to that because we are very much like that ourselves. Auntie T. is the strong, silent type of our furry family. She gets along with Auntie L. very well. In her spare time, Auntie T. likes to steal goods from airports and is therefore known as The Wisegirl. She even made a movie about her mobstress activities (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDbcWPwo1qo)! OMC!
What can we say about the Notorious B.? No, it’s not that gangsta rapper dude! We mean our Uncle B. who is, as a matter fact, a gangsta dude, but he’s just, well, you know… Once he was a cute little cub. Then he started to grow and change into a big giant lion that not only thinks all ladycats fall from him, but he also believes he’s The Catfather (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQcD4N3b8yc). Uncle B. is the youngest brother of Auntie L. and Auntie T. He turned 2 last August. He expects Auntie L. to share her food bowl with him, which she does. If she doesn’t, he just goes away. Not really a though guy.
Our furry family brings us lots of peace and joy. We’re thankful for all of them. Next time when we purr for peace, we will purr some special honorable purrs for Auntie L., Auntie T. and Uncle B. Feel free to join us!
Bravo and thank you to all the Purrs 4 Peace purrrrrticipants who include:

"In health there is freedom. Health is the first of all liberties." -- Henri-Frederic Amiel
Mummy is busy running around trying to find me, make certain I’m feeling okay, make sure I’m resting, and checking my litter box….just a few of her activities in caring for me while I’m not feeling quite myself…. Certainly, mummy has not felt peaceful for the last 12 days (since my recurrence of UTI). Therefore, we are reprising a Purrs 4 Peace posting from last year:
HEALTH and PEACE are intertwined...inseparable. We know this on an individual scale because each of us knows that when we are injured or ill, calm and inner peace are virtually impossible. When we feel fit and well, we at least have the ability to choose a peaceful existence. Similarly, I believe health issues effect peace and are effected by peace on a global scale. Many physicians have posited that health issues are both a consequence and a CAUSE of war. In fact the World Health Organization has a program which seeks to promote peace by providing health care. And not just war. We have seen with the earthquake in Haiti, that bringing health care to the sick and injured after a natural disaster is vital to restoring calm where there is chaos.
Therefore, this week we purr for health and healing for minds, for bodies, and for spirits. There can be no Peace without Health.
2:59 p.m. Get ready to Purrrrrrrr.
Confucius Cat say: GO!
Feel your purrs as white light of love, compassion. A great healing energy within you. #purrs4peace
Purrrrr...See that healing energy expand to envelope you and then spread into the world. #purrs4peace
Purrrrrrrrrrrrr.... See that light extending outside you, touching others. See it healing minds, healing bodies, healing spirits as it spreads. #purrs4peace
Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....... Imagine the powerful white light of your purrs touching areas of strife and chaos. #purrs4peace
Imagine bringing comfort, love, compassion, and healing to each human and animal. #purrs4peace
Purrrr...Imagine despair replaced by hope; sickness replaced with health; injury replaced by vitality. #purrs4peace
Peace * Paix * Frieden * Vrede * Pace * Fred* Paz * Shalom * Salaam * Om Shanti * Heddwch * Síochán * 和平 #purrs4peace
Purrs of Love bringing PEACE to the world. #purrs4peace
