Just a boy and his cat

A funny thing happened on my way to bed last night…

Bubbles asked me casually if we could have another cat. One of his classmates was looking for a home for a kitten she’d found. Ours are outdoor cats (Seymour’s allergic), and you can almost never have too many of those when you live out in the country, so I said, “Sure – why not?”

A little while later he came up to me again. “They’re on their way, Mom.”

“Say what?”

It was late. I hadn’t expected said pretty little baby kitty to arrive till sometime the next day. Instead, he arrived just before 10:00 p.m. that night, accompanied by one quiet girl and her tired mama.

This adorable little ball of fluff is called Spitfire. Goodness knows how he came by the name, but Bubbles and I agree that it suits him. After all, he’s not shy about letting us know when he wants our attention (all the time) or when he’s upset that he’s no longer the center of attention (any time we’re not actively adoring him), but his little tiny baby kitty meows are just about the cutest thing I’ve heard in a while. And he’s so tiny! How can you not love something this tiny?

He’s like Baby Groot – too cute to handle! 😀

So tell me – are you a cat person, a dog person, or somewhere in between? Do you have any fur babies?

Pretty Little Kitty Cat

Oh, pretty kitty,
Let me hold you all day long.
Oh, fluffy, pretty

Kitty, keep those li’l
Tiny purrs a-comin’ all
Throughout the night. Oh,

Pretty kitty, I
Will keep you safe from harm. Sweet,
Sweet little kitty…

Fresh Rain

There’s nothing like the
Scent of fresh rain, of damp earth
And the promise of

Sunshine yet to come.
Its fragrance is heavenly,

And I can never
Get enough. There’s nothing like
The scent of fresh rain…

Sunday Morning

Pretty birdies fill
The morning with sweet song as
The sun shines brightly

Overhead. There’s not
A cloud in the sky, and it’s
A beautiful day.

So Shall It Be

Grass grows, birds sing, the
Wind blows away the sun, and
Another day is

Done. The sun sets in
A cotton candy bed; as
Ever, as it was,

So shall it be. Grass
Grows, birds sing, and another
Day is gone for good.

Snowflakes In July

A moment is more
Than mere seconds – a moment
Is life, love, the world.

Life ends and begins
In a moment. Love begins
And ends in the same.

New worlds are born and
Other worlds die; a child laughs,
An old woman cries,

All in a moment’s
Time. Life is a collection
Of precious moments;

In the blink of an
Eye, those moments are gone, like
Snowflakes in July.

Moments are more than
Mere seconds. A moment could
Be eternity.

Work and Delight

Green in the morning,
Though gloomy at night, the fields
Always bring me some

Sort of delight. From
Fruit sweet and tasty to fresh
Corn on the cob, the

Fields always bring me
Some sort of job. Green in the
Morning, and gloomy

At night, the fields are
Filled with both work and delight.
And oh, what a sight!

Sailing Hearts

So many hearts sail
Blindly on, searching for love
In the dark of night.

Too many hearts heed
Not the call, and die waiting
For love in the dark.
