What a terrific day for a nap.

Hearts are breaking...

With sadness,
we just found out from Astrid, Kashim & Othello
that Upsie is no longer with us.
Upsie was one of the first cats my Food Lady knew from Weekend Cat Blogging
and we have enjoyed the pictures and the stories of Upsie
for the past two years.
Sundance also left us too soon
but now Upsie and Sundance are together again.
From August 11, 2007 on Sher's Blog: What Did You Eat?

A Prayer for Animals

Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals,
especially for animals who are suffering;
for animals that are overworked, underfed and cruelly treated;
for all wistful creatures in captivity that beat their wings against bars;
for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry;
for all that must be put to death.
We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity,
and for those who deal with them we ask a heart of compassion
and gentle hands and kindly words.
Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals,
and so to share the blessings of the merciful.

(Possibly written by the great Albert Schweitzer)

Catnip in my toes!

My Food Lady brought home a live catnip bush!
Oh, how I love the live catnip!
See how I can hold it in my toes to eat it! I don't sit up for much
but I'll sit up for live catnip in my toes!
I can also eat it right off of the catnip bush!
Yum, yum, yummy!

Happy St. Patrick's Day 2008!

Mew-ra-loo-ra-loo-ra, Mew-ra-loo-ra-li
May your days be touched by
a bit of Irish luck,
brightened by a song
in your heart,
and warmed by the smiles of
the people you love!

Easy like Sunday Morning in Bed

Today is rather a lazy day
so I thought that maybe I would just lounge
with my little green mousie in bed.
Also, I am watching some squirrels and birds
out the front window, when I am not snoozing!

My Spring Has Sprung Entry

This is my entry for the Spring Has Sprung Contest.
I finished it just in time - whew!

Spring is so Tasty!

I love the taste of Spring.

It's in most everything.

It's in my fresh nip

As it goes over my lip

And in the sweet roses of Spring.



Did you see, my tongue is licking that rose!?!
