Self-indulgence …


For the first time in 18 years I am without cat. Both of my kitties have passed away within the past 10 months, leaving me sad and missing their companionship.

While on a photo expedition at a local garden centre last week I was distracted, for a time, by the resident feline I found self-indulgently basking in the glow of impending motherhood.

Kitty was a willing subject, which made it easy for me to over-indulge the camera. I was only able to free myself of her alluring charm when she finally rose to vacate her throne — our mutual self-indulgent spell broken.

My short visit with Kitty has left my mind and heart are open to the possibility of adopting a couple of kittens. I wait, in earnest, for their arrival …

Thanks for visiting …

Dorothy 🙂

  1. 🙂 I adopted a kitten a few years ago. I highly recommend it… even if mine is a little bit crazy! She gives hugs, and that’s pretty fantastic for a cat!

    • Thanks for your comment. … It’s been 15 years since I had a kitten in the house. I know I can expect some mayhem for the first little while, especially as I acclimate the collies to the new family members. There are worse things … 😉 … Be well, Dorothy 🙂

    • I hear you … the house feels so empty. I always love saying “Good morning!” to them. They seem to understand. … BTW … Arm and Hammer has a bicarbonate of soda based pet smell “eraser.” We use it in the litter box to freshen things up after it’s been de-pooped. Makes a world of difference. … I’m following your blog now … Be well, Dorothy 🙂

  2. I rescue cats as I found two Summers where Mamas dropped their babies in my garage. I neuter them then *attempt* to find homes. I’m sure somewhere out there is the perfect kitten (or pair of kittens) for you. And–it is kitten season right now!

    • Thanks, Amanda. I’m working with the vet, who often rescues kittens, and hope to hear from him some time soon. … I’m following your blog now as I, too, am a novice gardener and feel I might learn something from your insights. Since we had the garden re-landscaped last year there is a lot to do … Be well, Dorothy 🙂
