It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Notes From A Kitten

Once I get the hang of using paws on keyboards, I won't have to ask my Mom to type for me.

My name is Minette.
My mom says it  should be Lucky.
Someone found me starving and freezing to death .
They took me somewhere warm and fed me and the doctor gave me medicine and then I felt like playing again.

There were no fun cats to play with.
They were all big and old and kinda sad.

Then one day a lady came in and she walked right over to me ! And I put my paw on the glass because I wanted to touch her. 
She opened the door and picked me up.
So I picked her to be my new Mom.

I didn't feel so good when we first went home, I was taking medicine.
Mom hid my medicine in smelly fishy things.
Mom is kind of smart.
I wonder if she will speak to me in Cat.

This house is very big.
I can run into the living room and slide all the way across to the other side.
I like to do that ... it makes Mom laugh.

I am pretty tired now.
Mom went to the store, she kept saying things about snow.
What is snow ?
Does it taste fishy ? Can I have some ??

Time for a nap.


  1. That is one lucky kitten! :)

  2. Minette, you have a great Mom. Let her sleep! ASI

  3. Minette, you have a great Mom. Let her sleep!

  4. This is joy!

  5. My Hannah cat came as a starving feral stray to me. She never got over 8 lbs. Remains tiny like a kitten and has been a joy to us.

    Was she taken into a shelter?

    This was where I got Minnette. They rescue and doctor and care and love all these little creatures that are so in need.
    I will try to volunteer this spring/summer when I can manage to get there and back without snow getting in my way.
