China Cat is 14 Today!

Hooray! It's my birthday today!
I am 14 years old today!
Larry the Lamb always sits on the porch couch with me,

but today I was surprised when
Billy the Birthday Bear showed up!Billy arrived at our house last April
when my Lap Lady's grandson had his 1st birthday.
And now Billy came to my birthday to sing to me!
I think that it will be a great birthday!
It is sure starting out terrific!
Hey Willow, come on out here with us!

Farewell Dear Friends

We lost two dear friends from the Cat Blogosphere.
It was with great sadness I found out today that both
Fat Eric and Luxor had each gone off to the Rainbow Bridge.
Our thoughts and prayers and purrs
are with both of their families.

God looked around his Garden and found an empty place.
He then looked down upon his earth and saw your loving face.

He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.
His Garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best.

He knew that you were suffering, he knew you were in pain.
And knew that you would never get well on earth again.

He saw your path was difficult, he closed your tired eyes,
He whispered to you "Peace be Thine" and gave you wings to fly.

When we saw you sleeping so calm and free of pain,
We would not wish you back to earth to suffer once again.

You’ve left us precious memories, your love will be our guide,
You live on through your children, you’re always by our side.

It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you on the day God called you home.

Options are Good

I am so happy when the sun is shining and I can go out and sleep in the heat in my screened-in porch! My Lap Lady and Willow don't like the heat as much as my Big Janitor Dad and I do. I think that I mentioned that before but it is true! See how nice it is out here?!?!
Sometimes I sleep on the rug and sometimes I sleep on the cooler concrete. I even have my ginger tabby cat bed out here...
.....It's good to have options!
