Black and White Sunday: Forever Squash

fall-07-squash-2

Squash E Bear, I know that you feel me, wherever you are, and that you know how much we miss you.

Fall was your season. Your coat would get so full and fluffy. Oh, how you loved to put your nose high in the air and sniff the change in the wind. It feels like only yesterday that you would crunch through the leaves and make a nest. Ten falls have passed without you and yet, I still see you lying under the big tree, watching for rabbits or squirrels. Now Louise, Sofie, and Lil’ Charles lay where you once did, keeping guard, and ensuring the yard is safe from intruders.

Fall was always our time, Big Guy. Hope they have leaf piles over the rainbow.

Caturday: Helping Myself

When Mommy turns her back to feed the dogs, I am very quick to help myself to the dog food. Aren’t I good at it. I don’t think Mom liked the idea that I am self-sufficient.

Remember, cats can have dog food, but dogs should not have cat food. It contains too much fat, calories, and protein that can really upset their tummies and even cause pancreatitis.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Wonderful Wednesday: Sofie Turns 10

Sofie Bear, my very complex bundle of anxiety, I love you to the ends of the earth and back. 10 years around the sun is a wonderful number of turns. You are a special girl and have taught me much. Keep finding that sunspot.

Happy Birthday!

I have no idea why she always lies on a toy, but she does.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Caturday: Stopping & Thinking

Mini just stopped by while I was eating breakfast, for who knows what reason. And then, moved on.

Wonderful Wednesday: Change Is In The Air

Sofie: Another beautiful afternoon sitting in the leaves. Big tree sure does drop a lot of them.
Charles: Hey, Sofie. I smell some change in the air.
Louise: Change? I don’t like change. I think I will hide here in this pile of leaves until it passes. Maybe I will come out on January 21st.

Monday Mischief: Best Friends Forever

Louise has loved Mojo Rising, the boy next door, since the day they meet, 11 years ago. He is about a year and some older than her. Even now, in their later age, there is a special smile that she only has for him. She always wants to go play with him, even though neither of them plays much anymore. Mojo is currently being treated for lung cancer and doing very well. Time takes its toll on all of us – but true love knows no age or infirmity.

Black and White Sunday: Watching The Day

There is nothing more interesting and fun than sitting at the front door and watching the world. There are so many people walking by now: puppies, children, squirrels, cars, trucks, and especially delivery people. Bark bark bark bark bark, woof woof, and arf.

Caturday: Where’s Nine?

Winter has come, so the plants needed to come in from outside. Nine thinks that is just great. New plaything: Let’s dig! Let’s scratch! If you look halfway up the trunk of the fig tree (ficus benjamina), you will see gnarls from cats-past who also found the fig tree a great scratching post during the winter. BTW, this fig tree is at least 25 years old.
