Feline Friday

 Feline Friday

  One is permitted to assume an attitude of placid indifference in the matter of elephants, cockatoos, H. G. Wells, Sweden, roast beef, Puccini, and even Mormonism, but in the matter of cats it seems necessary to take a firm stand. The cat himself insists upon this; he invariably inspires strong feelings. He is, indeed, the only animal who does. From his admirers he evokes an intense adoration which usually finds an outlet in exaggerated expression. It is practically impossible for a cat-lover to meet a stray feline on the street without stopping to pass the time of day with him. I can say for myself that it takes me considerably longer to traverse a street in which cats occur than it does a catless thoroughfare. But so magnetic an animal is bound to repel when he does not fascinate, and those who hate the cat hate him with a malignity which, I think, only snakes in the animal kingdom provoke to an equal degree. ~Carl Van Vechten, The Tiger in the House, 1920

Rose always had this look if you bugged her:  "My attitude is none of your business."

She was her own feline. She was strong willed and her piercing green eyes melted our hearts. We miss you Rose. She was a tough lil tiger.

 November will always be a difficult month, Roxanne left us, Rose left us, Bandit left us, my mom left us on her own mother's birthday. Oh how I miss them both. 

A pink house in Winter's white snowy days.  Say hello to Pink Saturday

I love Brie Cheese and lately I have found some funny puns about it. 

Grandpa putting the trike together.

As Shea would say "Ta Dah!

Blake and Brody opening the Blippi Eggs. The trike was late arriving so we took his gifts to him tonight.

Blake and Mommy with his new trike. What fun those boys will have. He was so happy to see that John Deere Trike!

Sweet Dreams!

I always stop to pet kitties on the street. They fascinate me.

Big healing hugs on all the losses you'll remember in November. Rose was a most beautiful girl kitty.

Yea on the trike. He'll be all over the place on that.

Love that quote from 'A Tiger in the House.' Sharing with my cat-lover friend (who's not on social media).
Brody's going to enjoy SO many adventures on that trike!

So true about cats. I want every one I see. Brody and Blake are cuties. Blippie is a cool show. XO

Cats are certainly worth passing the time of day.

Sweet pictures of precious children.

Seeing your hubby putting the trike together brought back lots of sweet memories of us doing that same thing years ago when our kids were little. Miss Rose was a beautiful kitty cat. I love that pink house. It looks cheerful against all that snow. You have a super day, hugs, Edna B.
