Arrival Story:
The year we moved here..8 years ago I had just lost my sweet Joseph who was a Rose tabby as well ( he had liver problems and could not be saved). I was shopping with my daughter Jessica at the local garden store and a Cat Rescue from Gig Harbor WA had kittens for adoption. Jessica said "let's just look'. Well I looked and here was this scrawney,ratty,drab little skinney beige thing and I looked at him with tears in my eyes and jessica said"Ok..we are getting him" So I came home with this rat like creature and my family laughed. Well, look at him now. He loves to go outside in the morning and sit in the garden, catch moles, nap in the shade. Then in he comes and demands lunch and a nap. Then it is time to torment Jacquelyn or Marybeth, his housemate cats. or watch me make dinner, or sit with me while i work, or read or watch TV. He tells me stories of things he has seen , or wants to see; of places he has been in other times and places he thinks he would like to go . He always begs me to brush him and he hates to have his face and eyes washed, though not as much as Jaquelyn does. they fight over who gets brushed though. He always wins. He is a pushy guy. If I am in another room I will hear this baleful cry"Where are youooooooooooooooo?" and i call and he comes a running. 'Oh, there you are...humpf...just wondered...didn't really want anything"

Simon Says:

Every day is a gift...Life is a gift

Simon is sitting in a quiet spot by the lake. His angel friend Ralphie sits
by him and they quietly watch the ripples glide across the water. "you know
how you always say Life is a Gift, Ralphie, well it really is, isn't it, and
we should treasure every second of it." "Yes, " answers Ralphie " the gift
of life is not a defined space or size..we never know when we are given it
how large it is, how long it will last. But, you know, that doesn't even
matter...for we can fill a very small space with all the love and life in
the universe or, conversely, we can have a very empty hollow huge space
that is worth nothing at all. " "ahhh...and then there is the ribbon
around the gift" muses Simon 'that is sort of like the rainbow bridge isnt
it...the link to the other side, the ribbon contains the gift of life..the
two go together...they are part of each other. the ribbon contains all the
memories and the joys and sadness of the life". 'Right "says Ralphie "and
when you leave the container of life behind you cross over that ribbon
bridge of memories and into the everlasting freedom of heaven, the rainbow
bridge, where the pain and the suffering and the mistakes made in life are
gone and you can only remember the joy you knew in life ..the love.. the
happiness. And for those sweet souls who knew no joy in life there will be
joy across the bridge. " They sit there silently.
Simon sighs, " Several of my and Marybeths dearest friends crossed the
bridge this week, it has been a week of loss. " "No Simon, you are not
quite getting it" says Ralphie "They are not lost, they have just completed
their circle of life, their gift is complete. and now their angel selves can
share that gift by spreading love. You feel love in so many ways...we always
think love should just be fun and jolly but love is true feeling and can be pain and loss and sadness because those feelings make
the feelings of joy and gladness that much sweeter and stronger. Love is not
easy, Simon, but it is not hard either...Love just is...all is what we is life and love is beyond life
too. So fill your "gift" to full capacity and wrap it in a ribbon with all
the colors of the rainbow" .
The swans glide by , slowly and there is a ripple wake behind them. Slowly
it makes its way to the shore and laps ever so slightly at the feet of Simon
and Ralphie. They turn and smile at each other.


Happy to be alive

Today is my tenth birthday and I am so grateful to be here and healthy and have such a loving furmily and such great furrends...there are so many kitties with no forever home and I feel so fortunate that my mom happend by the rescue booth ten years ago on her birthday. There I was..a scrawny yeowling kitten. I guess I looked so much like her Joseph she had recently lost, she burst into tears ,picked me up and kissed me. Her daughter bought me on the spot. I sure love to pick on my sisfurs Jacquelyn and we just play..that is what it is...My favorite thing to eat is shrimp and I bet I will get a big one or two today...Thank you all my furrends for my collars and treats and all the well wishes..Birthday are great!
