When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say,
"I used everything You gave me."

Monday Musings... Cats

"Time spent with cats is never wasted."
~Sigmund Freud

"Women and cats will do as they please,
men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea."
~Robert A. Heinlein

"Cats are magical... the more you pet them,
the longer you both live"
~Author Unknown

"A little drowsing cat is the perfect beatitude."
~Jules Champfluery

"I love cats because I love my home;
 and little by little they become its visible soul."
~Jean Cocteau

I'd like you to meet Izzy

and Bella.

These two sweethearts were adopted from Smart Petz Animal Rescue. They are about six months old and the sweetest babies ever! We brought them home yesterday and they are already queens of this castle.

Izzy is extremely playful and curious, but the minute you touch her and pick her up, she settles right into your chest like she belongs there and sets to purring like a motor boat.

Bella seemed so docile at the adoption site, but don't let that snoozing face fool you! She also loves to play and explore. We caught her trying to steal a loaf (yes, I said a loaf) of bread from the kitchen counter last night! Little stinker! She also loves to be held and cuddled. She is the spitting image of a cat my late Mama owned and every time I look at her, I can't help but remember my Mom.

After saying goodbye to Gizmo and Gadget earlier this year, our house has not been the same. It was time to bring some sweet kitty love back into the house.

I miss you Giz and Gadge.
Welcome home Izzy and Bella!


  1. They are so adorable! Congrats on your new babies. I couldn't live without cats in the house either...they bring such joy!

  2. So sweet. I love cats but have too many allergic people in my life to own one. :) Have a great day!

  3. Love this! BTW, there is a new project at French Picnic!!

  4. Oh my goodness... such sweethearts. I love my kitty and I know I'll miss him terribly when he's gone. He's ten years old, so I'm hoping we still have quite a few years left. There's just something fun about cats, don't you think? They bring a smile to my face.
