Arrival Story:
I am Nigel's third guardian. He lived in one side of a duplex and ended up moving to the other and adopting the neighbor who was afflicted with alzheimers. Nigel would keep him company and sleep with him every night. When the neighbor and his wife died I adopted Nigel. (I had been visiting them for 6 years and knew Nigel well and I had just lost my tortoise shell cat Emperess Maude to cancer.)

Mr. Nigel died of heart failure…only his physical heart…his heart was bigger than ever even at the end. He was a dear heart and one of the most affectionate cats in the world. He is sorely missed.


Prayer for those who work in Animal Shelters

"In my week of good news, I want to lift up the men and women who work in our local animals shelters. Their job is not easy. They are on the frontline of caring for animals that are lost, abused or ill. They seek to save lives and they depend on only small resources to do so. Without them we would all be diminished. So, please join me in prayers for this unique ministry. I know they will appreciate all the support we can give them." by Episcopal Bishop Steven Charleston


Cat Poem

Landlocked in Fur

I was meditating with my cat the other day
and all of the sudden she shouted,
"What happened?"

I knew exactly what she meant, but encouraged
her to say more--- feeling that if she got it all out on the table
she would sleep better at night.

So I responded, "Tell me more my dear."
and she soulfully meowed,

"Well, I was mingled with the sky. I was comets
whizzing here and there. I was suns in heat, hell---I was
galaxies. But now look--- I am
landlocked in fur."

To this I said, "I know exactly what
you mean>"
