Remembering

Just talked to a dear friend who lost her companion cat early this year. She started to apologize for still missing him – but she shouldn’t. We all have to weather grief in our own way; painfully and slowly for most of us.

Here’s a link I’m passing on to her and to you as well:

May your heart be peaceful today.

Surf’s up!

Ignore the March weather and curl up with your laptop (But with your cat in your lap, of course) for some surfing. This ‘About’ site http://cats.about.com/od/blogs/ will lead you to fun facts about your favorite companion, lots more cat blogs to read, and tips and treats for everything feline.

What a great, rainy, dismal afternoon …

Pranks cats play on each other

I’ll rub my chin on the door edge until – oops – the door closes, trapping you inside the room with me

That bit of fuzz is some terrible unknown, vicious bug – look out! It’ll attack you!

I want to play; why are you sleeping?

I want to sleep; why are you playing?

But your bowl of food always tastes so much better …

Reporting from Ira’s window

There are still leaves on the trees around here, surprisingly. Ira wants them gone – now – because they block his second-story view of the world from the north window.

Abishag is content with his reports on the weather, birds, visitors, an animal wandering through the area.

Is Ira’s media coverage unbiased, or does he throw in personal opinion?

A warm ‘Thank you!’ to our most faithful commentator, Randy Stark. Besides being a bibliophile and Friend of Cats, he’s a many-times published poet. You can find him at his web page, Randy Stark or certainly browse for his books on Amazon. He’s a blunt and acerbic stand-up poet, so his work is likely NSFW – you’ll get in trouble for snickering in your cubicle.

Kezia the Beautiful

While we know she’s at the Rainbow Bridge, we still miss her very much. She really was the original of Kezia as portrayed in their book, “Three Wise Cats.” (Still available, as a Christmas season evergreen, at Penguin Random House:
http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/search/three-wise-cats?q=Three%20Wise%20Cats )

Somehow Kezia contracted Irritable Bowel Disease, and after valiantly battling it for years, she finally had to yield. She’d been on several special diets (giving up, unhappily, the people foods she loved) but as she aged, her body simply couldn’t continue the fight.

Her

Her “lovely stripes.”

You can see her “lovely stripes” and smile in this photo; while there’s a bit too much flash, note how daintily she’d tucked her front paws. She knew from kittenhood how to ‘strike a pose’ for the camera.

Surely she and Ptolemy are ‘supervising’ our other companion cats as they all enjoy bright sunny skies, cool shade and flowers brimming with butterflies.
