The Joy of Cats

Sweetpea watching for introoders....
With all the sadness on CB this past week or more, it really makes Mom appreciate the time she has with us cats all the more.  We try to keep Mom and Pop amused with our silliness, loved and comforted with our companionship and they in turn take extra special care of each and every one of us.  No effort is too much in our care cuz  Mom tells us we bring joy into her life every single day!

Two Spot being his silly self....

A poem about cats that says it all... The Magician by Arlene Gay Levine

Then my best friend
on all the Earth
sits upon my lap 
not to be comforted
but to soothe.

Wizard of the heart,
my cat,
when the world fails
 or the day weighs,
with a wave of the tail
or soulful glance
makes the Universe
shine once more.

Darby looking cute and oh so cuddly...

Hug your dog or cat today...their time with us is so precious and short. We are joining Camera Critters and Photo Hunt - Joy today!  Do join too. Happy Weekend.

Beautiful Minnie is our Peacekeeper.

Farewell Peepers

Marg of Marg's Pets has lost her lovely goat Peepers.  She had not been well for a couple of weeks and Marg knew it was time to let her go.  We got to meet Peepers when we visited Marg recently and she was a lovely goat.  She preferred the company of her two donkey friends, Joe and Smoke.  Farewell Peepers.  Please do stop by Marg's to offer condolences.  She has lost three animals recently..

We would like to dedicate this poem in her memory....

In the Loss of Your Pet

There must be a heaven
for the animal friends we love.
They are not human,
yet they bring out
our own humanity. . .
sometimes in ways
that other people cannot.
They do not worry
about fame or fortune. . .
instead, they bring our hearts
nearer to the joy of simple things.
Each day they teach us
little lessons in trust
and steadfast affection.
Whatever heaven may be,
there's surely a place in it
for friends as good as these.
