As I write this Grace, the large tabby is exploring our back yard and watching the world through the partial chain link fence. It is a warm sunny day and Grace is taking in a little late afternoon sunshine.Read the rest of this entry

Preparing for Positive Change
We all need hope. There is a lot of uncertainty and chaos out there. Trust that things can get better and will get better. In the meantime, it helps to practice gratitude, even when it’s hard sometimes.
As we approach Thanksgiving it is a time to remember the many blessings we receive throughout the year. Time with family is always wonderful and we look forward to sharing memories and good food. We also start preparing for the Christmas season. Grace always stakes out the space under the Christmas tree as soon as it goes up, whether it’s decorated or not. Blessings and peace to you and yours this holiday season.
Cats Can Be Friends Too!
I just read another recent study that suggests dogs are more loyal than cats. Of course, I know better. I remember years ago when I had very painful dental surgery and the late great Roxie (the Japanese bobtail) would not leave my side as I rested on CCL’s sofa. While I slept she in fact laid on top of me. Most recently, Grace, a true diva, has provided a sense of comfort during the COVID crisis. She is also quite chatty too.
If there is any doubt that cats make good companions and are loyal to boot, read the story from Reader’s Digest of “Henry and Baloo.” Owners of Henry, a rescue dog, found that their pup seemed to suffer separation anxiety, so they adopted Baloo to keep him company.

Doctors recently performed a unique form of surgery on a cat who was attacked by a dog. “JuiceBox” had buttons sewn into his face to hold stitches together. If all goes well the button stitches will be out soon. Read the story in the attached link.
