The Big Stick

I like to begin my day with a calm mind. This morning, though, I was unsettled to hear from Bean that some amongst you believe that cat-hood is not necessarily measured pointy-side up. This is just plain wrong.  Have you … Continue reading

Listening Unto Myself

Many of you are celebrating the big holiday today.  I hope you’re enjoying yourselves.  We are.  Bugs gave me a really wonderful present this morning.  He’s the softest, kindest cat that I can remember him being, ever. So — it … Continue reading
