Observe life at its best, Listen to life’s songs, Embrace life’s bounties, Breathe the breath of life, Savor life to its fullest!

The Last Flight

On one of my morning walks, I glanced upon the sidewalk and noticed a clump of bird feathers. The vision captured in my mind produced. . . The Last Flight. With today being the anniversary of 9/11/2001, timing seemed appropriate for sharing.

Think about your plans for the day. Is Mother Nature part of the mental picture? If you are in a area of sunshine, take a brisk walk. Observe. Listen. Breathe. No sunshine? No worries. Stand in your doorway or look out a window. Marvel at what you see for behind every cloud or within each raindrop is a degree of sunshine.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Life is too short to let a day go by without a smile and saying, “I love you!”. . . out loud! To yourself!! Love yourself so that love will be spread to others!

Peace at the End of the Day

After a hard day’s work, whether stressed out from an office position, working at a construction site or laboring in the back yard, there is no better method of relaxation than a massage. It can be as simple as a hand or foot massage to as elaborate as a full body massage. The result is the same…peace at the end of the day!

The story goes that a stray cat on a beach in Thailand befriended a group of teachers who were taking advantage of a little rest and relaxation. The cat climbed into the lap of one of the teachers and got the massage of a lifetime. After watching the video you’ll swear this is not this cat’s first massage!

Okay, all you kittie moms and dads, where is the training video for Cat Massage 101? If a dog can be taught to fetch, why not teach a cat massage therapy! After all, it is in their nature to knead, knead, knead. Once naptime is over, it is time to stre-e-e-tch and limber up those limbs and paws. “Foxie! Come to Mama.”

Of course, if no one is available to give the massage, there are a plethora of tools or massage equipment that can be put to good use. Take for example the Shiatsu kneading fingers portable massager that kitty seems to be enjoying immensely! Okay, time’s up feline friend…Mama’s turn!

Cat’s Ten Commandments

QUICK POST: A stopover at Facebook resulted in running across the Cat’s Ten Commandments. Would be interesting to see what some of our cat lovers might add to the list.

Cats_10_Commandments

purr-r-r-r-r-r-r…

I know you love me
That comes as no surprise
I feel it in your touch
I see it in your eyes

I know you love me
You treat me with special care
Letting me cuddle in your lap
While you brush my fur-ry hair

I know you love me
With every super treat
T
he gentle paw massage
Tickles my little feet

I know you love me
Meals are o-oh-so-o good
My bowl is never empty
Always the best kitty food

I know you love me
You pat me on my head
Talk to be softly
Let me sleep in your bed

You know I love you
That’s a given too
I rub against your legs
Purr-r-r-ing that I do

While we may not necessarily be excited about the snow, we will always enjoy the music of Frank Sinatra!

Cattitude Tip #1

LOVE YOUR CAT! PURR-R-R-R-R-R-R…

CatitudeTip1

Point of first note, IF our Foxie ever sat calmly near her carrier, she would deserve double treats! The only time she actually likes her carrier is at the vet. She had rather be in the carrier than in the hands of the vet! Secondly, a stranger will never get near Foxie. She is much too fast and has her own special hiding places. Does that mean she does not get treats? Heavens NO! She loves Whisker Lickin’s!!

Me? Cattitude? Nah!
