Pix of my Princess

The weather here is becoming very summery: humid and warm with occasional storms and showers, and the heat is getting to my dear little girl, who spends most of her days asleep in my bedroom  or lying on the floor by the computer when I am using it.   

Tiggy is so sweet and I am very lucky to have such a gentle, yielding girl to share my days...The ceiling fan is on in the two main rooms most days and Rusty, my canine companion hides away from the breezes under a favourite chair.

 Not so my Princess; she, when not napping, is always beside me, sharing my time, her voice asking for attention now and then in the kindest of manners.  I just love her!

 Especially Tiggy!
Even when she snores!

OOPS!  I've been found sitting at the computer!  LOL
"Can I have some attention now?"
So polite she is  :)


The thing about extinction...

 If you are, like me, a lover of animals, and wonder with concern about their futures in the wild, then go to this link and have a quiet read.  It won't take you long, and may even give you an insight on the plight of the many species that face extinction every single is one of several sites thatdemonstrates concern for the marvellous animals that co-populate our small blue planet.   Will these amazing creatures survive for our grandchildren and their children to see?  I wonder.....

Cat Talk

MiaowFeed me.

MeeowPet me.

MroowwrrrrI love you.

Miioo-oo-ooI am in love and must meet my betrothed outside beneath the hedge. Don't wait up.

Mrowlll! I feel like making noise.

Rrrow-mawwwPlease, the time has come to tidy the litter box

Rrrow-miawwwI have remedied the cat box untidiness by shoveling the contents as far out of the box as was practical.

MiaowmiaowPlay with me

MiaowmioawHave you noticed the shortage of available cat toys in this room?

MioawmioawSince I can find nothing better to play with, I shall see what happens when I sharpen my claws on this handy piece of furniture

RaowwwwwI think I shall now spend time licking the most private parts of my anatomy.

MrowwwwwI am now recalling, with sorrow, that some of my private parts did not return with me from that visit to the vet.

Roww-maww-rowwI am so glad to see that you have returned home with both arms full of groceries. I will now rub myself against your legs and attempt to trip you as you walk towards the kitchen.

Gakk-ak-akMy digestive passages seem to have formed a hairball. Wherever could this have come from? I shall leave it here upon the carpeting.

MowwwwwwwwrrrrSnuggling is a good idea.

MowwmShedding is pretty good too

Mowww!I was enjoying snuggling and shedding in the warm clean laundry until you removed me so unkindly.

Miaow! Miaow!I have discovered that, although one may be able to wedge her body through the gap behind the stove and into that little drawer filled with pots and pans, the reverse path is slightly more difficult to navigate.

Mraakk!Oh, small bird! Please come over here.

SsssRoww!I believe that I have found a mouse or similar animal.

MmmrowmmmIt is certain that the best tasting fish is one you have caught yourself.

MmmmmmmIf I sit in the sunshine for another hour or so, I think I shall be satisfied.

MreoawPlease ask room service to send up another can of tuna fish.

MreeeowDo you serve catnip with that?

MroowI have forced my body into a tiny space in order to look cute. 
 How am I doing?

Miaooww! Mriaow!




waits upon my brother
dancing light
amidst the silver of his hair

once a mountain
Now a bird
so frail beneath my hand
yet splendid still

Star of my heart

If were blind 
and yet you lived
I still could see your smile within my eyes
and feel its warmth 
upon my cheek

If I were deaf 
and yet you lived
I still could hear your voice within my heart
and know its joy...

If you but lived...

My heaven
Pure and healing silver light
Lend shelter

where would you be 
without a sky to travel

Star of my heart

If I were mute 
and yet you lived
you would be my words and voice
and tell of how I felt...

If all my limbs were withered 
yet you lived
all the joy of movement
would dance on in other parts of me...

If you but lived...
