My cat plays fetch…. yeah, the cat… I never knew.

Of course we all know cats love to chase things. paper balls, yarn, whatever. But I have never had a cat play fetch with me. Until now. I was playing with my cat Emerald a couple of weeks ago and wadded up a sticky note into a ball. I threw it and she went and got it and then brought it back to me. I was thinking it was a lark or something but then she did it again and again. we did this for like 30 or more minutes. Now it has become a regular. just like a dog, she gets it and places it in my palm to throw again! The amazing World of animals. Have a great day /evening wherever you are!

My kitten is facing her Giant…

I am very amazed at my kitten, Emerald. The World of animals fascinates me because everyday I see more and more just how much they are not just cats and dogs or other species. They are creatively unique and I love that. Back to Emerald. I have a beautiful GSD Raven, that loves people, her companion and my other beautiful GSD Nitro. She is smart and very protective. but, she hates cats and any other animal that ventures into the backyard, a large fenced in area and she kills them. The other ight when I was feeding Nitro and Raven, my beautiful brave and stubborn Emerald, slipped out the door I did not realize I had not fully shut. Needless to say Raven went after her and I tried to get this strong determined dog away from my kitten as she tried to attack her. I did get Emerald and took her in but the damage seemed it might be too much. Fortunately, her rescue was quick enough that she just got a bruised muscle in her back leg but she was in shock. Per instructions, she was comforted, left alone to rest except for comfort petting. It has been three days and this morning, I saw her go into the kitchen where she went to the back door and stared at Raven through the glass. she faced her Giant and her fear and she just sat there. I was amazed. Raven saw her and was barking but Emerald just rested there until I guess she felt okay. What an amazing World of animals we live with.

I saw a Bobcat. At 2 a.m. or maybe it was a Mountain Lion. I didn’t even know we had these things in Ga…..

I forgot to give my niece her keys after I had checked on a pet at her grooming Salon and she lives an hour from me sooooo I get home at 12 and yay, there they are. so, I had to turn around and go all of the way back. Anyway, I was close to home around 2 a.m. and coming up the road I saw movement and looked over and saw this huge cat. I slowed down and since no one was behind I pulled to the side of the road. I looked and saw this huge cat just staring as it sat. I was so tired I thought maybe I was imagining it until it moved again. I was in awe but not enough to get out and try to get a pic. This thing was huge. I never even knew we had them here. It looked like the one on the left.

I have a bully in my home…….My smallest kitten…….lol……….

Our smallest kitten is a bully. Yes, she is a very big bully for such a small tot. She slaps our Pomeranian which I scold her for but she doesn’t care. she hoards the toys and steals them from the other kitten. She steals all of the lap time even though we make her share that time, it is a battle to keep her from trying to push them off. Yes, I never imagined I would have a bully in my own home. lol. Have a great evening/day wherever you may be!

Sawyer, the Pom rescue is terrified of kittens………..well of life I guess……Lol…..

After losing our Buddy to a heart issue, my daughter found a 9 year old Pomeranian from rescue. I didn’t want another dog but she persisted so I got him and I am glad I did. He is so much like Buddy but a cream color instead of black and white like Buddy. I named him Sawyer. He is so much like sweet Buddy it is almost like having Buddy here. Their personalities are identical. Even when it comes to kittens. We got a kitten for the ten year old child who loves and adores kittens . Sawyer is huge compared to this kitten and Sawyer is small. But he is terrified of this kitten. Of course he is terrified of a lot of things. But this kitten? You would have thought we brought home a baby tiger. So now we have to comfort him and try to assure him that the tiny kitten is not going to teat him to shreds and eat him. He still shudders even though he is finally starting to adjust . Very slowly. Life with dogs and cats. Love it! 🙂

I am who I am….

Sometimes I am too blunt. I am honest. I fail constantly when trying to get people I know to understand. I have lost children. I love the child I have. I love her babies. I am happy and yet I have anxiety and i often find that being an Empath/ Discerner can be so trying. i do yoga in my home. I try and stay fit but I also have an appetite for sweet things when i do not need them. I am kind and will help anyone in need but I am often used but forgiving. I DO have a sharp tongue with family kids and teens when they are disrespectful. I love to garden and watch and yes, run from Lucifer the Chihuahua terror in the neighborhood. I am so many things but most of all I am me and that is okay by me because I know I strive to be the best I can. Have a great day/evening wherever you are! 🙂

I am re-naming Lucifer the dog…. because I cannot remember what I re-named him before…….lol.

Most of you know Lucifer by now. He is the neighbors Chihuahua who has always been so mean and so scary that he can scare a dog over a 100 pounds into running from him with those sharp little teeth. If not, here is a quick summary. Lucifer, whom I will now just call “Salty Dog”, would attack and terrorize our neighborhood. People, animals, rocks, leaves and the list goes on every time he would jerk free from his masters hand ( a sweet but timid lady) and he would embark on his rampage, leash trailing behind him. He thought everything was deadly and needed him to kill it. including humans who would just be standing there. He would come after your ankles. we. all. ran. lol

But in 2020, Lucifer changed over the year. Yes, he still chases leaves, rocks, other animals and such but now he has stopped coming after me. He will just, stare, challenge my mind and then go on. We kind of came to a silent agreement this past year. we need more friends than enemies. lol. So, he is tempted at times but I guess he doesn’t smell fear on me anymore. who knows? Either way, from now on, I will call him Salty Dog. Unless he comes after me again. lol

Tryin to re-train things in my brain to Positive vs. Negative….

This has been a year if I ever need to switch from negative to positive, this has been it. I realized how much negative was in my mind when battle after after mental battle erupted. Not to say i am totally negative because I have funny days as well but I have had to let go of a lot of it. Toxic thoughts, people, environment and more. But there, as in life, have been really good things and some really bad things that have happened this year. Maybe Covid made the bad things seem worse, I don’t know. So That is what I am trying to do. On the plus side, I have Lucifer (the Chihuahua guard dog to ensure a good chuckle when I am having really bad moments. I mean, as long as I can laugh safely away from him. Have a great day/evening everyone.

Lucifer meets Sawyer…..

Could it be? Could it be possible the Lucifer I hate to love actually can be kind? Yes, it has happened. After my sweet Buddy passed (Lucifer’s arch enemy, along with every other breathing thing and well, anything actually. Rocks, leaves, trees, you get the idea. He attacked everything that little Chihuahua terror. But there is hope. After Buddy passed, my daughter decided I needed a dog and helped to find Sawyer. A small 9 year old Pom whom at first I just could not feel anything for. he has won me over and though he can never take Buddy’s place, he is a lot like Buddy in every way except color and I can walk him on a leash. (Buddy would flip like a fish on a hook,lol). Anyway, I was walking Sawyer and yes, here he comes. Lucifer. I went to run before my dog was assaulted when Sawyer ran to Lucifer. Lucifer actually greeted him. The neighbor and I were stunned as they rubbed noses and actually got along. So well that they Now have play time in her fenced back yard. Maybe 2020 does have some good in it after all.
