Some things I think about
I can’t tell you the number of days when I look at one of our 4 cats (yes 4) and say to them “You have No idea how good your life is!"
Of course, I say it with a wistful smile knowing they understand exactly what I’m saying. Then they look at me, squint their eyes, turn and go about doing what it is that cats do.
Cat lovers know what that is.
Why do some people insist on comparing cats to dogs?
They say things like "I'm a dog person" or
“I don’t like cats because they don’t listen like a dog does."
I don't know, I just don't get it.
A cat is not a dog,
Mother’s Day Kittens- May 9, 2014
It all started out as one house cat, Roxy.
We had just moved into a beautiful new home, and on occasion there would be this stray white cat in the back yard sitting, staring, watching us from a distance. Many months pass. Winter comes and goes. Then on Mother’s day weekend, 3 years ago, life changed. I pulled into the driveway, got out of the car, and what do I hear? That faint, distinct little cry that we all know, coming from the under our front porch- Kittens! Gasp. I felt like a kid…’we have kittens!’
We tried desperately to find the owner of the little white stray….We tried desperately to find good homes for a Mother & babies. The weeks go by, and we get more and more attached to our babies… Then, one of the little boys found a FANTASTIC home with our good friends (but that is another blog – his name is Romeo!)
Finally, it was too late; we couldn’t part with our little Mother’s Day gift.
And that’s the story of our family of 4…Roxy, Momma Cat, Mouse & Tiger Lily!
Double Nickels that's what my mother calls it when someone in our family turns 55. That's me, double nickels, and my brain can't stop thinking, brainstorming, creating. Maybe it's the urgency of the fact that I' m past that elusive middle age point. 'Let's see, in another 30 years I'll be...well, really old" No time like NOW- start and do the things I have always dreamed of doing. And so, my adventure begins.
At Double Nickels. Thanks Mom ;)
