Caturday: Cats of Christmas Past – Zachary

Zachary, Christmas 2008

Zachary was a Russian Blue. He and his sister, Cuddles, came to us as a pair. They could not be more different. Zachary was quiet and shy and spent most of his time in the kitchen or under a coach. If you sat quietly, he would sit down with you and make a little nest. You couldn’t find a sweeter boy.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Caturday: Cats of Christmas Past – Muffy

Muffin and the 3 snowballs, Christmas 2007.

We thought of turning his antics into a children’s story because he was the purrfect orange cat. Orange cats have a special attitude. Those of you that have had the luck to live with one, know what I mean.

We miss him every day. He was the ambassador of cats at DogDaz Zoo.

Caturday: We are free to invent our lives; dogs, not so much…

(Note: This older post of mine popped up when I was reviewing some blogs and I thought it was very timely for me. Currently, I am out of work and the universe has not yet shown me what my next move is. I wrote this piece in 2012. Sometimes, I find it good to go back and check in with myself, it helps me remember who I am, which can be helpful.)

Miss Constance Kitty taking a nap

{Warning,,, for some reason I am feeling very philosophical today and not waxing very doggy…} If you really could come back as anything you wanted, if reincarnation was something that really happens, what would you be? I think that I would want to be an old person’s cat. I get to laze around all day with my person, get lots of treats, not have a lot of demands put on me, and sleep my requisite 20 out of 24 hours. But, alas, I do not know if that is possible. I realized long ago that I must invent my life here and now and not wait until the next life. So, I invented a life full of love and laughs and furry things. Even though I have to work to earn money (and usually I work about 12 to 16 hours per day), I am very lucky to have ‘invented’ or, at least ‘positioned,’ a job that allows me to be surrounded by my zoo on most days and work in an environment that is all my own (home). No one ever told me that I was free to invent my life (my parents would have thought this an utterly crazy conversation). Probably like most people, my younger life just sort of happened to me. I did not realize I was inventing my life for a long time, but then, the things I wanted, really really wanted, the things I prayed for, and lite candles for, started to materialize.

In today’s world there are ‘vision boards’ and ‘life plans,’ and there are even people who get paid to be your ‘life coach.’  Looking back (hindsight is always 20/20) I never had a picture but a feeling about my life. I just wanted to love and to be loved in return. I wanted a family around me and I wanted animals. I wanted meaningful work and to do good deeds. I never really visioned owning material things, that was just icing on the cake. No matter what your circumstance, I do want you to know that it is never too late to invent your life. To fill it, even if only for the shortest moment of the day, with your dreams and visions, and you will be surprised, how when you start to put out in the universe those things that you desire, in a positive way, they start to come back to you and your life starts changing toward the vision that you have asked for. (And that is how I ended up with 2 dogs and 5 cats, so make sure you realize what your inventing (hahahaha!))

One warning about this vision thing: I once asked the universe for some time off from work because I really was not having fun. I wasn’t very specific about it. Soon after putting that out in the universe, I broke my leg and had to take several weeks off. The clearer you are, the more likely you will get exactly the life you want. So I should have put out there: “please let me be healthy, on a beach, in the sun, having fun with my dogs and favorite humans by my side,”

I think you make your luck, you invent your life, and you make it happen every day. You have the freedom to invent your life – what are you inventing today?

Caturday: 4 Part Study On Being Nine

Peanut is an expert at capturing Mr. Nine in pictures. Nine loves his scratching post (especially because that is where he gets his ‘nip). He was extra special cute today.

Caturday: Like Bread -Noel Will Rise

Peanut says that Noel is like a loaf of bread rising in her box. I am not always happy that I have to give up a major part of my kitchen table to her. Before this became Noel’s new bed, it was where I put my mail when I brought it in from the mailbox. You just can’t win when you have cats that must be up on your level and with you at all times. The kitchen and dining room are Noel’s domain. (There is white fur everywhere on everything.) She rarely ventures into other areas. Last night I did see her sleeping on Louise’s dog bed in the living room after all dogs were in bed, she does that occasionally. All the cats love Louise. I saw Noel give her a nose nuzzle the other day (in the kitchen of course). That was a very rare thing for Noel, the Christmas cat. Just some random thoughts on my NoNo.

Have a restful Caturday!
