Doodads — not garden pictures

This will be random sayings, thoughts, and a dream. Dotty in the Sun I walked near Dotty where she slept in the sun and petted her in passing.  She rolled onto her back and laid there, inert, relaxed and happy. I remember the first time I saw her, curled in a tight ball on top… Continue reading Doodads — not garden pictures

Thursday Inspiration 60 — Cheeky Beast!

Five minutes after opening the back slider, I heard a terrible caterwauling from the kitchen. It wasn't Mlady and it wasn't Dotty. Coming around the corner, I saw Dotty puffed out like a Halloween cat. She looked almost normal size. She tip-toed forward, her eyes fixed on the beast outside of the screen. The macho… Continue reading Thursday Inspiration 60 — Cheeky Beast!

Doodads — Two Hung Low and Jeremiah

I stayed up late last night watching episodes of, "Justified," and didn't get up until almost 1 today -- say what?!  Usually there is a set routine of turning things off, turning things on, opening things, closing things, etc.  Not this morning, er, afternoon.  First thing was opening up the bedroom door to look at… Continue reading Doodads — Two Hung Low and Jeremiah

Doodads — 5/18/20

Update:  Curiosity got the best of me, so I went to Old Faithful YouTube and found out what it is. https://youtu.be/MbC_CLZao-Y It says they need to be at least 3 years old to blossom, but mine is only a year old (or a year after planting the store-bought plant.)

Two Hung Low

Dotty Dear dVerse OLN

Dotty Dear Her thin white hairs Float in the air, Stick to my clothes, Go up my nose – They're everywhere! Cat on my chest, Her own bequest; Claws say I'm hers; So do her purrs – Food is her quest.   Lillian is today's host of dVerse today, for Open Link Night.

American Sentence — two cats series

These are my first attempts at writing American Sentences.  My favorite subjects are featured in a series of 3. Two cats curl on two separate perches; not friends, yet not enemies. One curls in leopard-skin bed; one curls on pink-printed fleece -- both dreaming. One has long stripes with white cotton bits; one's short-haired, white,… Continue reading American Sentence — two cats series

Cat Talk: The divide is closing

Mlady                                   Dotty Dotty has been with us for about 12 weeks now.  Mlady has gone through a whole range of adjustment issues, where Dotty has been trying to stay out of her way.  At first I thought I would just let them work it out between themselves, but when I saw a scratch on Dotty's… Continue reading Cat Talk: The divide is closing
