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.

Sometimes I Am Just A Cat

No she didn't drink too much.
She didn't faint.
She is taking a nap.
One of the many naps she / cats take during the day.
One reason is because she is bored.  I took a nap yesterday. I was bored.
It is grey and rainy and boring here ..but at least it is warm. I can drive to the supermarket without chains on the tires.

I have been harboring a fugitive.
A beautiful young cat comes to my house every day, just to hang out on the lanai with my cats and I.
I don't feed it .. I pet it and eventually ask it to go home so the owner won't throw a fit.
Not that I really care, ( about the owners feelings) but I don't want any ugliness in my days .
I have met the owner .. there is good reason behind my comment.
I don't want to read the news or hear the news on tv or even listen to people discussing the latest atrocities or disasters ..

I am being an ostrich ... sometimes I am just a cat  .
The little neighbor cat has scars from being attacked by something bigger and vicious.
If that were my cat, it would not go outside ever again. Last night the little sweetie slept on my lanai, warm and fed and safe from the creatures in the forest.
This morning, after breakfast, she left. A perfect guest.

Minette and Merlin pay no attention. Honey was unaware that any new visitors were here or left.
She is here beside me, taking one of her many baths. Then she will take one of her many naps.

I love her.
Merlin, my love, is asleep in the living room, on the dog bed ... a medium sized, cat shaped pile of hair.

I am in my pajamas and might stay in them.
I will nap and eat a bite and nap some more. And not go out in the rain and get wet !
I will be a cat today ..


  1. Sometimes spending the day in PJ's is what the doctor ordered.

  2. Sounds like a plan :) Sometimes, I hope for a rainy day so I have an excuse to do just that - stay in PJ's and read, watch TV, and doze all day... I do this on sunny days, too - I just feel guilty about it then, LOL!
