(*Face-Paws*) – One-Liner Wednesday

“Martha, don’t do that, you’re being an idiot.”


My last cat, Tommy, had about 50 different Looks that he’d give me that were all a variation of this and he was usually right. He was far more patient with me than Usako is.

Faithful Companions – Thankful Thursday

Today I am grateful for the companionship of my cats and dog. Without them I know that I would have gone mad throughout my life. The companions may have changed in physical form, but I know that even when they pass on, they can continue to keep me company when I need it the most.

Neighbors – Thankful Thursday

Today I’m grateful for my neighbors. A week or so ago, one of the little girls that live in the circle found a cat wandering around and brought him back to her friends, also neighbors of mine. No one knew who the cat belonged to, but he was well groomed and very friendly. The downstairs neighbors proceeded to keep the cat company, bringing him in when it started raining and feeding him everyday so he wouldn’t go hungry.

Yesterday, on the way home from walking my dog, I noticed a green poster mentioning a missing cat who was the exact description of the one the neighbors were feeding, right down to the ‘tipped’ look of his left ear. I snapped a picture of the notice and went home.

Later in the day, I saw the cat again and called the name the poster had mentioned. The cat walked right up to me and let me pick him up and take him into the house so I could call the number from the poster.

He was the missing cat and the owner was so incredibly happy to see him. It has been a long time since I’ve seen someone that happy.

I have lost pets before, notably my cat Tommy soon after we moved here. He was already an old cat and isn’t alive anymore even though I never found him.

So I am grateful for my neighbors seeing a cat and then taking care of him until the owner was found. I can only hope that there are more people out there like that.

Family In All Shapes and Sizes – Thankful Thursday

It’s that time again, but this time I think I’ll focus on a few little things once more instead of just one theme. Not because there aren’t big things or people that I can focus on, but because there are a lot of little things I can think of at the moment and I want to share them.

This week I am thankful for:
