Living with Grace

Posted on

It has now been more than a year since Grace, the overweight Tabby, came to live with me. Grace at one point was tramautized easily. She now is happy and very comfortable in her adopted surroundings.

It is said that cats provide good company. I would like to say that cats are good company for those who provide good company for them.

Grace is very vocal and can be very demanding at times.  She also has some people preferences and makes those known as well.  Of course, she loves CCL.  The biggest thing is Grace is at peace with who she is and she genuinely loves and cares for those around her.

Changing Course

Posted on

Grace, the lovely big Tabby got a taste of the outdoors today.  I let her come out as I watered mums and swept debris from the giant pine tree in my back yard.  She explored and then obediently went inside without being coaxed.  She seems to have struck a balance in her life as she changes course. Many of you know Grace can be very demanding and vocal about her concerns.  I watch her adapt to a new routine quietly marking her territory deciding how she wants to experience her new surroundings.  Fall is a time of change.   Colder weather sets in, the leaves on the trees change colors and our work schedules take on some intensity.  The last quarter of the year.  It can for some of us be a time of upheaval, often things take a different turn and we have to change course and change our expectations.

Cats & All That ™

A few weeks ago CCL was taking out the trash and Jean Claude, the black Bombay decided to go out for a bag of potato chips ( or whatever). We tried to find him, posted signs, queried neighbors etc. Now,CCL’s house is sandwiched between two others neighbors -Cathy and Joe who have a new patio – and Mildred who often leaves food for stray cats. I was convinced Mildred was holding Jean Claude hostage and urged CCL to take action. After about a week, CCL went out-of-town and I decided to stop by her house. Mildred, the accused cat hostage taker was working in her yard. I introduced myself and asked if she had seen Jean Claude. “No” she replied quietly…

Summer is Here For Real

Posted on

Today where I live the temperature reached 99 degrees.  Yes, it’s summer.  It’s hot but it’s summer and it’s a good time to read and reflect and to find some peace by the lake, on the beach or in one’s own back yard.
