Off The Beaten Path

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never ever the same.

Time For Bed

hard to believe this was taken in 2001

I always know when it is time for bed because Purdy comes in and curls up in the middle of my covers. I just took a shower and my hair is still really wet, I should cut it short and then it would dry quicker, but my hair has been long for so many years I just don't know if I could get used to it short. I keep it up on the top of my head, but those little hairs at the back of the neck, well, they feel like little bugs or something. Drives me nuts as I type. So I guess it is time to head to bed. It is 3:30 in the morning, and Nick is still up running around. Nick woke the cat up and now Purdy will be bugging me to feed him, get him milk, let him out, let him in, let him out again. I was really happy he was all comfortable and sound asleep. Cats can be quite demanding you know.

Yes Nea cats can be very demanding, have two like I do, and you are soon refereeing fights, cleaning up more mess from the litter box, twice the amount of food. But the benefits are worth it. Two cats in stereo purring you to sleep at night, waking up and having a cat sit on the bed keeping watch as the other sleeps.

Cats can be a pain but a joy at the same time.

A Blessed weekend is wished for you

Hi Bill, Love my kitty, I might sound like I am complaining, but not really. I don't mind taking care of him, but he does make me get up at night sometimes, so I usually go to bed when he does. He is a strange cat, he sleeps at night. Most cats I thought slept during the day and prowled at night, but he is now almost 7 years old. And he stays in more and more, I had him "fixed" and after that he didn't win any more cat fights, so now he gets beat up. Even on the porch, went out yesterday because I heard meowing and there was a black and white cat trying to get in and beat him up. He isn't safe on his own back he doesn't like to go out much anymore.

I will go and add you to my facebook, I am new to facebook, not really sure how to do things yet. I have been playing with the music, pictures, virtual pets, stuff like that. It is fun, my email is, but I use most everywhere, the gmail account I never use. I don't know what happened to my email?

Hi Catch, yeh, I lost my other site to spammers. I am trying to get them to close it completely, but I guess blogger doesn't care, there is really no one to actually talk to, I have written blogger a couple of times with no response. Asking them, if I can't have it back, will they just close it out completely....but so far No. I was away to long....and then when I came back I tried to start over, and I guess I did it wrong. I should have just left it, I guess. But they are now limiting the total amount of your picture files. Glad you found me......:)

What a beautiful cat. I'm more of a dog person but I appreciate beautiful animals whatever they are.

Blogger are limiting the amount of picture files? Why?

Nea said...

I loved my dog. I was never a dog person until I got Lou, and then I realized just how people get so attached to those furry friends. Cats are independent. My cat less so, I think he was taken away from his Mom to soon, because he follows me around the house like a dog would. And he is always asleep right near me.

I never saw any limits on the old blog, but when I posted some pictues the other day, somewhere I saw a limit, it said I had used 9 of my 1020 limit....something like that. The limit is high, but with picturs, on the old blog, I was probably over half my limit.

Akelamalu said...

Yes they say you never own a cat they own you.

Crikey I must have reached my limit on the photograph front already I think!

Hi Akela, and it is true, I have had cats move in from next door, they want to live here, but I just can't have it, they fight with my cat. One comes right up on the porch and sticks it head in the back door. he is looking for food and water I suppose. but they also like companionship, WHEN they want it.....haha

I only saw that picture limit that one time, I wonder if I imagined it......
