Ollie has been spending a good deal of time grooming, especially with all this rain pouring out of the sky.
He wants to know how long he should sit like this waiting.
The wise Gus, whom we now call "Aqua-cat" because he sprints in the rain, knows that Christmas is almost but not quite here yet.
So Ollie and Augustus sit around waiting and communicate telepathically while I work around the house.
Some time later I find Mr Puffy Pants in very deep reflection
and even later I find him like so by the door! Waiting is not easy for a baby cat!
One last reading before Christmas selected by our very special cat boys has us all thinking about Christmas...
"Know thou that when the Son of Man yielded up His breath to God, the whole creation wept with a great weeping. By sacrificing Himself, however, a fresh capacity was infused into all created things. Its evidences, as witnessed in all the peoples of the earth, are now manifest before thee. The deepest wisdom which the sages have uttered, the profoundest learning which any mind hath unfolded, the arts which the ablest hands have produced, the influence exerted by the most potent of rulers, are but manifestations of the quickening power released by His transcendent, His all-pervasive, and resplendent Spirit.
We testify that when He came into the world, He shed the splendor of His glory upon all created things. Through Him the leper recovered from the leprosy of perversity and ignorance. Through Him, the unchaste and wayward were healed. Through His power, born of Almighty God, the eyes of the blind were opened, and the soul of the sinner sanctified..." Baha'u'llah, Gleanings
Cat boys filled their paws with Christmas kisses and blew them in the air, sending them to their friends all over, far and wide...Meowy Christmas everyone!
