My Best Friend

Two posts in one day, not something I do often. But when I realized today was “National Friendship Day” I wanted to share a pic of my best friend.

Sunday Pause (Paws): For the Word “Just”

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and today I would like to take a pause and look at the phrase “just.”

A coworker was telling me a story at work the other day and at one point she said how she talks to her dog to let her know she is leaving. Then came the words “I know it’s stupid, it’s just a dog.” I don’t know about you but I am so tired of hearing people refer to animals as “just” anything. So I came up with a list of what I think they are just

Just a creation of God
Just a loyal friend
Just a family member
Just a living being
Just a comforter
Just a stress reliever
Just a joy to watch
Just a joy to play with
Just someone to come home to

Just a snuggler
Just created BEFORE humans
Just improve their “owners” health
Just teachers of responsibility

Just LOVE!

Just a joy to watch

Here is what a Facebook follower friend of mine in her own words shared with me about her beloved cat Jasmine pictured above.

Jasmine chilling on the bed with me. I wonder if other people take pleasure in watching their pets enjoy themselves? From jumping on the bed and just enjoying each other’s company to watching her sniff the air whilst sat in the garden or getting her toys out the bowl I store them in and playing with them. I’m sure they do, but it often an unspoken pleasure of pet ownership when in comes to cats. But I enjoy watching my cat just enjoy herself around the house from sunbathing to cackling at birds out the window or sniffing the breeze.

Featured on Katzenworld: My Journey With Cino (So Far)

It was published! 🙂

Last week I mentioned that Cino would be featured on Katzenworld and that I would share it with you once it was published. Well it was published this past Thursday.

Since I have shared stories about Cino and written a few poems on my own blog, I decided to write a new poem that encompasses Cino & I’s journey so far for Katzenworld. They publish poems on Thursdays which they call “Purrsday Poetry.”

So without further adieu, click the link below to read the poem on the Katzenworld blog.

The Tale of Coolidge & Effie

Coolidge when he was very young (photo taken by Lauren from Eel Creek Chronicles)

Coolidge was one of the rescued kittens from a litter that was found in a field. He was a shy and timid cat, uncertain of his new surroundings, when Lauren and her husband first brought him home. (Lauren’s description sounds similar to what I experienced with Cino when I brought her home). But the patience and love they seem to have had for Coolidge eventually created a beautiful bond.   Continue reading
