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.

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and take a break from the busyness!
I have been having fun playing with photographs lately. I decided to turn some of the photos of Cino into black & white photos. So this Sunday, I would like to share them with you. I hope you enjoy them. My favorite is the one of my hand and Cino’s paw.
Today I would like to honor some pets that have passed away. I have gathered some photos from Facebook submissions, fellow bloggers, friends, and family. All lives matter and losing a pet can be devastating. So this Memorial Day weekend, please sit back, relax, and enjoy the photos and videos of precious lives that are now in the arms of their creator.
I wrote a poem to start off this post. I hope you enjoy.
A pet is not just an animal But a part of the family Time shared with them Seems to go by so rapidly
A bond so strong Between human and animal A life shared together Makes loss hard to handle
There is no timeline for grief Our pets are not forgotten But in one’s own time The pain may soften
It’s Memorial Day weekend. Many people are visiting graves, reflecting, missing, & weeping over the loss of a loved one.
Pets are also part of the family and there are many people who are mourning the loss of a beloved pet. I would like to pay tribute to them in a post. (This is not to take away from those who have lost their lives serving, this is just in addition to this day when we think of those who have passed)
Odin is usually a happy boy at 4 years old. He loves our long walks in nature, where he can run free without his leash. He was early taught not to hunt, so when he meets a rabbit, he just stands quiet and lifts one paw. Then I tell him, that the rabbit lives here, just go on straight and he listens. This is so well acted of him, which gives himself more freedom, while we are out in nature. Continue reading →
