Water Management

Posted on

What is the human body is about 70 percent water?? Most living things need it.   Jean Claude and Roxie for sure. They drink from  filtered water containers at my house and CCL’s house.   Still,  I have seen paw prints in the bath tub and yes, in case you were wondering, JC knows how to cut on the cold water.

JC and Roxie also like to come outside when I’m watering my garden. Roxie will often supervise.  Water is also a tool in managing their outside activities.  I  use a squirt water bottle to get them to go into the house when they come outside. Roxie doesn’t like it all but Jean Claude can take squirting event soaking as long as you don’t him in the face.

Addendum 6/24…later that evening  I let Jean Claude and Roxie outside.  Roxie dashed lightening speed  to the tree in my back yard and refused to come in, hiding under chairs etc.  Finally  had to use the squirt  bottle to spray her little behind to get her in the house.

Follow Your Road

Posted on

Lately life has been a bit challenging. I am one of those folks who believes in letting the good in and focusing on the positive.   Still, naysayers have a way of creeping in and those with peculiar agendas.  I’m blessed to have wonderful friends who are wonderful people.   I’ve had my share of ups and downs but still I feel life has so much to offer.   The song “Follow Your Road” is one of my favories when I’m down and out.  I have been trying to purchase  a less expensive of the song (by the group Seawind).  Singer Joanna Avil has done an update available on Itunes. 

Follow Your Road

With so many roads that seem to lead down to the sea
I wonder which road will be the right one for me
Others may fall away, dead ending left and right
But there is this one road the journey’s far out aside.

Have you wondered where your road will lead you?
Maybe to a bright day of sunshine or a starry night in heaven
Or it might be you’re afraid to go, afraid to go
But you’ve got to follow your road, or you’ll never know – never know

We are all but travelers living in a foreign land
Just trying to find our way – best as we can
Looking for an answer, trying to find some light
And though we have journeyed far, it’s not quite far enough.

Have you wondered where your road will lead you?
Maybe to a song that needs singing, or a summer rain
Or it might be you’re afraid to go, afraid to go
But you’ve got to follow your road, or you’ll never know

You’ve got to follow your road, follow your road
You’ve got to follow your road, follow your road
You’ve got to follow your road, follow your road
And maybe someday your road will take you far away

You’ve got to follow your road, follow your road, follow your road
You’ve got to follow your road, follow your road, follow your road
You’ve got to follow your road, follow your road, follow your road
And maybe someday your road will take you far away

And maybe someday your road will take you far away

Yes!

I can get Azeena off my back and post.  Well let’s see.  A lot has been going on with the CCL and the cats.  Let’s start with Mme. Roxie.

Roxie was always special.  Even when I picked her up from the shelter, she immediately attacked my earrings and as my friend reminds me I said “Oh yeah, she’s nice and crazy.”  Well be careful what you wish for.  Roxie is like the child that is constantly hurting herself so that people wonder what is going on that house.  Luckily JC is good so people know that we don’t do anything to Roxie.  She has broken both of her front incisors, gotten a bad urinary tract infection, chipped a rib and lawd knows what else.  Recently she has taken to running away.  And my grandma is wrong.  Cats are pack creatures, but their packs tend to be much smaller than dogs.

So Roxie ran away from Azeena’s house and she snuck out at my house.  But she does come back.  She just doesn’t have enough sense to do it in a reasonable timeframe and she cant seem to come back on her own.  You have to go and get her for her to come back.

Roxie has also taken to keeping me up at night with constant meowing.  It’s because she misses me because the longer she stays with me the faster she less she does it.

As always, JC is cool and collected

Signs of Growth

Roxie sometimes snips me with her teeth.  Yesterday she got me right on my back side.   I thought it was to get my attention but I recently read cats do it to mark you more intimately.  I don’t know if mothers do that to their children.  Some hold on too tight but after a time it’s up to us to set ourselves free…not just from mother love but from anything that harms us or prevents us from fulfilling our dreams and living a reach full life.

Technology

Posted on

…just got off the phone with a neighbor who doesn’t know if technology is the blessing we make it out to be…I for sure am often befuddled but often amazed.  Of course those of you who know about Roxie and her laser toy know CCL and I have two cats who are with the new tech for sure.   Still don’t know about Roxie and her social media skills however.
