Winter’s Parting

Winter left the northern half of Mother Earth with a frigid blast of cold air in my region and tons of snow in others. My parting words to the season — don’t let the door hit you… (Yes, I’ve used this phrase before. I’m old and I’m starting to repeat myself…so sue me.)

Enough about Winter. Welcome Spring 2021 and all the BS that the thing I shall not name brings along for the ride. You know what I’m talking about; the big C word.

No, not that C word.

Enough about the terrible things we have to look forward to in the coming season. I want to discuss the hole in my pocket of joy because I had to send my dear, sweet Shadow on his farewell journey across the Rainbow Bridge.

I’ll see you and all the pets of my life, along with family members, on the other side of the bridge, Shad.

I thought the hole would continue to grow in size but I managed to find a needle and thread (I’m typing metaphorically, you do realize that, right?) and I stitched up that darn gaping-joy-sucking-hole.

Enter Oreo and Samatha.

Oreo is a lap kitty. Cool!!!
Samantha likes to sit as high as possible and survey her world.
Even doors don’t stop her.

I adopted these precious felines from Kitty Connection out of Medford, MA. Because, as we all know, life is better with a cat on your lap (their slogan but I agree wholeheartedly).

Harlee wasn’t too keen on our new family members at first.

“Not two cats?!”

He eventually got over it and learned to accept the new status quo.

“As long as she continues to buy me Munchkins, she can have as many cats as she wants.”

Sam and Oreo have settled in nicely.

Oreo loves looking at the bird feeders I have hanging outside just about every window.
Sam, enjoying her breakfast.

All in all, my house is a very, very, very fine house, indeed, with two cats and a dog.

Time to go play some laser tag.

Happy Spring 2021 to you. Blessed be :}

Mi manchi, mia amata immortale.

  1. Our pets keep us young!

  2. Yes, they do, especially when one of them knocks over a vase of forsythia branches, sending water everywhere. ๐ŸŒป
