The Song of Rufus the Red

“He drew a circle that shut me out –
Heretic , rebel, a thing to flout.
But love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle and took him In!”

When we brought Rufus home to keep Mickey Mouser company,
we had no idea that we had initiated a month long battle of wills.
That was in July 2015.

Blogging for Peace

epeace20172

Today bloggers all over the world are promoting and publishing peace globes. I can’t think of a better time to change the tone of the conversation to peace, love, and kindness.
My globe features Mickey Mouser and Rufus the Red, feline role models.

No comments today, everybody take a deep breath and think good thoughts.

Yes, that picture was taken on the first official day of Spring, not that Mother Nature pays any attention to the calendar…
By the way, that’s a garden ornament in the background – not a real cat!

Home for the Holidays

eSydney

Beautiful owl-eyed Sydney is 10 years old. Sydney is definitely on Santa’s Nice List.

eMarlee

Marlee is a friendly gentle cat. At 9 years old she’s done with all that annoying kittenish misbehavior. She just needs a friend to cuddle with.
Sydney and Marlee are waiting at PAWS.

EMouser

And here’s our own Mickey Mouser (failed foster cat). He had a rough start in life as a tiny underweight feral kitten rescued by PAWS volunteers. He’s wishing a warm safe home for everycat.

Sweet Sixteen

eFeedMe

It seems like yesterday that an adorable tiny tabby kitten with ENORMOUS paws wandered through our front yard.

How lucky we were that Mother Nature delivered him to us!

This year Tommie had 6 teeth removed, and we continue to give him fluids twice a week to keep his kidneys working. Through it all, he’s our role model for calm acceptance and enjoyment of life.

A nap in the sun.

A whiff of the first catnip in the Spring.

eShakeTomFeb

I hold his paw, and he holds my heart.
Happy Birthday, Tommie!

eMickHat

Mickey Mouser says, “If it’s Tommie’s birthday, why am I the one stuck wearing the hat?”

ePetMedsPaws

Look what we got from the generous people at 1-800-PetMeds!
No, not adorable young cats. We already have plenty of those at PAWS

ePetMeds

We got vitamins, dental wipes, hairball meds, and plenty of other supplies. It turns out that they have things that were opened for photo shoots, or returned, or squished in shipping, that they can’t sell.
We have cats and dogs that need TLC.
It’s a perfect match!

Thank you 1-800-PetMeds.
