Feline Stillness


Annabelle looks stunning as the afternoon lightens her face.


She poses.


And then she sends me a raspberry.


Yes she does have a sense of humor.

 Truly our Thankful Thursday posting:

A few short weeks ago on Facebook it came to the attention of Dorian Wagner that there was a woman named Joan who is terminally ill living in Hospice looking to make sure her cat was taken care of after her death. Dorian of the Cute Transport Network who is in Florida jumped into action. She did take the cat named Isis in and almost immediately found her a new forever home in Chicago. But she did more. Dorian asked her FB friends if they would like to send Christmas cards to Joan, she made arrangements to bring Isis to see Joan (more than once), she sent Joan some flowers and some personal items all of which was donated by those who helped Dorian in her Cute Transport and Santa Paws donations. It's just a feel good moment straight out of "It's A Wonderful Life". To be able to help someone who truly needs is a beautiful blessing. Isis will soon be making her plane ride to Chicago and Joan is very happy that Isis is going to great home, and all of us understand what that peace of mind must be like for Joan. God speed Joan, God speed Isis.

We're joining PepiSmartDog for this week's blog hop for Thankful Thursday. We hope you will too!

We also want to share our heartfelt sorrow our the loss of one of the long time bloggers who doesn't blog much now.
Beau Beau and Angie have blogged for nearly as long as Abby.
Beau Beau was always such a sweet darling boy with the most adorable face and eyes and personality.
Just last week, he began having some difficulties breathing. He was rushed to the Vet and fluid was taken from his lungs. He had a difficult weekend and yesterday he had a Vet visit with a cardiologist to do an echocardiogram. They found two inoperable tumors and made the decision to let Beau Beau become an Angel. Any loss of the heart is painful, but when it comes so suddenly and seemingly expectantly, it feels doubly hard. There is never a "good" time for this to happen, but for it to be at this time of the year with all the festivities I know how much more difficult and sad it will be. Thinking of Beau Beau and his sister Angie and their Mom and Dad who loved him so deeply. We all did. Now Beau Beau you can visit all of your Angel friends and I know you'll be free and happy and healthy. We'll all miss you for now.
Please stop by and give them your deepest purrs and prayers.
Beau Beau.

We have made a candle at gratefulness.org HERE for Beau Beau for any who would wish to light one.

Annabelle's Antics

 ummm....
 That's a moving target.
 Do you think Mr Jinx will mind?
 *whap*
 *whap whap*
 It's just outta my reach.
 *whappity whap whap*
 Every time I reach out for it it moves away.
 Oh I'm going to keep trying until I get you moving tail.
*sigh*

Somewhere Out There



Somewhere out there
beneath the pale moonlight
Someones thinking of me
and loving me tonight.

Somewhere out there
Someone is saying a prayer
That we'll find one another
In that great somewhere out there.

And even though I know how 
very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be
wishing on that same bright star
And when the night winds
start to sing that lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping
underneath the same big sky.

Somewhere out there
if love can see us through
Then we'll be together
Somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true.

Gracie


I purchased this little cat bed thinking that all the cats would enjoy it.
To this day the only one who has ever shown any interested 
was Gracie.
This was taken of Gracie on Oct 23,2013 around 7pm.
This is our first Christmas season since 2005 without Gracie.
Our second without Abby.
Much comes and goes, ebbs and flows.
The holidays have high points and low ones.
Always remember those who are no longer here in their
physical forms.
Hold tight to the ones who are.
Miss you dearest Gracie Grace.
10 months today.
