Evening Sun

Slightly unkempt lawn of an early summer’s eve;

Three cats splayed

Tomp Cat in sometimes shade, sometimes sun

Mr Henchman threatening spreadeagled, Fry’s creme fur belly out in full force sun

Crouch and stare, crouch and stare;

Her Haughtiness hidden below eye level -Total silent awareness

Meanwhile Birds call the close of day

Strong northern sun doing its bit for frozen shoulders;

And the poet, accepting inspiration, and the odd mouth furred caressing claim.

Credit to the Legendary Colm who was also moved by the inspirational moment to take these last two photos.

Christmas Kittens

Foster Kittens

Salem and Nikki came to stay over Christmas.

Two beautiful Egyptian Queen sisters. Nikki the pirate. Salem the climber/explorer.

I had to say goodbye to these beautiful Queens today. I didn’t realise how hard it would be. Nikki really chose me. She hid when her new family came. Salem was eager to meet them. There were tears. Lots of tears.

Nikki cuddles.
Sisterly love.
I hope she feels this safe in her new home soon.

Back track

I guess there are no accidents is true… today I was clearing thru old journals. I found the one where Gandalf left. πŸ’”

And of course that was followed by me moving back home to my parents after yet another unsuccessful attempt to stand on my own two feet, this time culminating in the loss of my precious 5 year compadre the beautiful G.

A few weeks later, I am still numbly grieving when the two furries arrived in our life.

That was 2017. Three years ago. Feels like a lifetime. It is a lifetime for Brownie and Queenie.

I knew eventually that I would be leaving them. I didn’t want to fall in love, but sure look. Nobody is ever prepared for love. And I seem to be unfairly open to it, especially when it comes to cats. Sure look at me – snuggling up on the sofa with Gandalf’s mortal enemy Tom! I can’t be unkind with him. It’s just not in my nature. Especially when he’s been usurped by two furries of outstanding personality and attitude. Not to mention the dog! He is over his zenith. And they don’t understand that they are just in their prime. They are just in it, living it. A study in living in the moment.

I don’t even want to talk about the future. I have a feeling I know what could happen…I see quantum possibilities. But hey. Thats a story for another day.
