Happy New Year!

To celebrate the ending of one decade and the beginning of new one, we are posting baby photos of the "kids". Most of our cats were found, rescued or adopted at about 6 months or older so we don't have many kitten photos.

This New Year's Eve is also a "blue moon" the second full moon in the same month. Here's some interesting astrological info from an online article....

Astrologically the energy of the full moon works to integrate and harmonize the contradictions in the self and others. During a full moon, the seeds sown at the last new moon are ready to be harvested and utilized. Traditionally, the full moon is seen as a time for meditation and particularly for personal issues and global concerns.

During the blue moon this vibration is said to be three-fold. In some cultures the second full moon was considered a very holy and auspicious day. A time when the veil between heaven and earth is thin and the ability to communicate with the gods and goddess is very powerful. It is considered a very spiritually significant time for prayer and meditation going back thousands of years.

Wishing you all another year of friendship, health, prosperity and love. We have enjoyed getting to know you all! Happy New Year!!!!!

Christmas Ice Storm

Sorry we haven't been visiting you all but we got hit with an ice storm on Christmas eve just a week after the 14" snow storm! This was not expected - we were supposed to get rain or a little freezing rain! It knocked power off for days for all of us in our town and in the high mountains.

Mom made nice snuggle spots for all of us with lots of fleece blankets over us to keep us warm. We don't have a wood stove or any back-up heat for times like this.

These show the damage to the roads going out of our house in both directions! The tree crews had to come and cut all the downed trees before the power crews could even reach us.

It was hard on the older cats and they were showing signs of stress - runny eyes and shivering even with all our blankets. It got down to 38 degrees in the house so the beans went out and got a generator. Boy were we happy to have heat back. We expect more snow this week but this time we are prepared!

For more Cats on Tuesday visit Gattina.
