On this day following the passing of my sweet, loving boy, my thoughts have drifted over and over to something he and all the cats we have rescued through the years, have shown me.
Cats seem to accept whatever obstacles that life sends their way. They just adjust. Whether it's illness or injury, blindness, deafness or lameness...their noble spirit allows them to deal with it, no complaining, no feeling sorry for themselves. Look how much we humans could learn from their strength. That is why we have rescued cats for over 35 years, even when our population pushed upwards and we were often criticized. When I look at their precious sleeping bodies, or listen to the cacophony of excited meows when the food platters are coming, I think; "Which one could I have said no to? Which life was less worth saving?" Surely not my darling Queso or his band of brothers.
My wish for each of you is that the cat or cats in your life will teach you, as they have taught me, to appreciate every day you live, regardless of the struggles.
The TWB and I love you all~

WOW! I am Cat of the Day!!!
Isn't this a great surprise? I didn't get to come to Catster until Saturday evening, but when I did, I found all these nice notes and rosettes and gifts on my page! It's better than having a birthday! (psst...that's coming up on April 24th) *grins*
I would like to say thanks to some very special friends for making this such a special day.
First, to my Uncle Wally, and my Catster Bro, Alfie, for the kimi picture and the crown. I really am "Prince Queso" now!
A lovely trophy came from Smokey and Punky. Thank you ladies, it is better than cheddar!
