"Do not meddle in the affairs of cats, for they are subtle and will pee on your computer." - Bruce Graham

Occasionally, I have time to take photo walks. I usually take pictures of flowers and trees. Once in while, though, I make a new feline friend. I saw this serious, but sweet, boy a few years ago on just such a walk. I have such a soft spot for orange kitties!!

So-I wake up this morning to discover that the Winston kitty decided that the carpet was no longer a good place to hack up a fur ball.
Yes, my new sandals. My. Favorite. New . Sandals. A better place to hack up a fur ball.
Sigh-I love the little guy- but, REALLY!??
Hope you all are having a better Saturday morning =)

I could just go for a chocolate today =)

Do not hurry
as you walk with grief,
it does not help the journey.

Walk slowly, pausing often:
do not hurry
as you walk with grief.

Do not be disturbed
by memories that come unbidden.
Swiftly forgive,
and let God speak for you
unspoken words.
Unfinished conversation
will be resolved in Him.
Be not disturbed.

Be gentle with the one
who walks with grief.
If it is you,
be gentle with yourself.
Swiftly forgive,
walk slowly ,
pausing often.

It has been more than a month since my Dad has passed away.   There are days when it feels like just yesterday.  There are days when I feel like I have myself  'under control' and I don't need to
contain myself so some sadness will leak out.
I've always loved books.  The power of words honestly shared is strong.  I came across this poem a few days ago in a book I found on grief.
I took the photo a few years ago and somehow the poem and my photo just seemed to fit.

Kitty yoga

Winston loves to lie on his back and show off that tummy of fluff to the world. Of course, to try and give a tummy rub is a certain way to get attacked by a vicious kitty claw.
The tummy is just a ruse, I think!

Fun facts about the Winston kitty
1. he loves his zoom groom brush
2. he is a friendly little dude. doesn't hide when i have comapny.
3. he is bad to the bone.  but when he greet me at the door when i
get home from work all is forgiven.
4. he loves to torment lucy kitty.  when i come home
and find tufts of fur on the floor i know he has started again.
5. he loves to lie on his back with his tummy exposed to the world
6. he purrs and head butts my hand when i feed him.  it's his way of saying, 'thanks'
7. he loves to eat cheerios and potatoe chips
8. he sleeps by the bed.  if i can't sleep and move to the living room he will sigh and follow
me to the living room
9. oscar is 'papa oscar' to him.  oscar is his mentor, i think =)
10. he is a big, floofy cat but he has a teeny, tiny little girl meow!

What about your cats?  Any quirky, endearing  habits?
