Well, October is almost over. Utu and I are 8 now, and Alex is 18.
Funny how life is marked by celebrations and remembrances. The year is nearly over - we have Halloween (which isn't all that huge in Australia, although the shops are trying hard. They'd do better with Mum if they had more black cats and less bats or pumpkins - not that she has anything against either). That will be followed by the anniversary of the deaths of our grandma (Mum's mum) and Seany's hooman mum in November. Then Christmas, New Year and it all starts again.
I'm in a philosophical mood - life looks kinda circular - like Valkyrie chasing her tail. We keep chasing stuff, but we never quite get it.
But one thing I HAVE got - that's how wonderful everycat on Catster is, and what a wonderful global community it is. We have friends close to home and further away than I can imagine.
Today is Caturday - and I think every Caturday we should reflect on how lucky we are to have found our hoomans and they us. My new slogan is "Don't hate and make war - pat cats and feel the purrrrrrr".
Next Caturday is Halloween. I hope everyone has a frightfully good week, with lots of cuddles, purrs and love.
PS - I haven't been hitting the nip, either :)
Ra you are so right. I'm very thankful I found my family and they found me as I was week away from being put to sleep if a family hadn't adopted me and then I found mum and the most loving furever home I could've ever wished for.
What a wonderpurr idea Ra! I agree totally! And you know there is a bit to remember..we all have things to be thankful for and we all sometimes need to slow down and smell the nip..
hugs and purrrrrrs,

Excellent sentiment Ra. We are very lucky at our household 'cause our Meowmy spoils all 18 of us rotten. there are a lot of furs not so lucky. We think about the homeless and abused furs alot and do as much as we can for the shelters in our area. And we click daily at www.freekibble .com and the www.theanimalrescuesite.com . It's free so it doesn't cost meowmy anything but time and she gets to help everyday that way.We also donate when we can like food and old blanketrs and towels or cleaning supplies.
