Two cat boys giggle under these blue and lavender skies

The jacaranda is in full bloom. We live on a lavender street. I don't know why but I never considered light lavender to be a real color!
The cat boys are finding this somewhat strange.
Look at them look at each other!
Now they have the giggles!
I show them the butterfly
and Ollie does this- I think he is mesmerized, he says that he can see better and besides the kisses he makes fly right up into the air.
Gussy gives him the gentle glance...his brother is juvenile!

We kept this thought in our head because we felt that we had to.

"The betterment of the world can be achieved through pure and goodly deeds, through commendable and seemly conduct." quoted in Advent of Divine Justice

Cat boys were more than pleased to make kisses and blow them in the air...it must be the lavender!

Ciao everyone!

When I close my eyes....

It was seemingly an ordinary afternoon, the type that only lacks the presence of the two cat boys outside.
As I was talking to the neighbor lady in the courtyard I caught a glance of Augustus from the corner of one eye.
And then this puzzled look! And so when I looked to the direction of his gaze
I saw shenanigans. I could not tell if MrPuffyPants had an emotional fainting (seeing that a dog was in the courtyard) or if he was just pulling Gussy's pant legs?!?
Then he commences to kick his heels up!
And he tops it off with this ...
I quickly asked him to make pawfuls of kisses because we had a lot to do and aren't we all lucky that he did.

"If you gather apples in the sunshine, or make hay, or hoe corn,
and then retire within doors, and shut your eyes, and press them with
your hand, you shall still see apples hanging in the bright light,
with boughs and leaves thereto, or the tasselled grass, or the
corn-flags, and this for five or six hours afterwards. There lie the
impressions on the retentive organ, though you knew it not. So lies
the whole series of natural images with which your life has made you
acquainted in your memory, though you know it not, and a thrill of
passion flashes light on their dark chamber, and the active power
seizes instantly the fit image, as the word of its momentary thought." (Emerson)

I don't make hay or hoe corn but I know that when I close my eyes I do see two cats wearing different style pants- MrPuffyPants and MrSweetPants, and I like what I see.

Augustus and Ollie wish their friends all over a lovely long weekend.

Ciao everyone!

These lovely cat boys....

Ollie was singing the blues
and Augustus was listening
when a faint stir led him to investigating...
My goodness I thought...this is one giant possum!
The cat boys drove the possum into a corner and wondered what to do next.
As evidenced from this photo, they decided to do nothing.
Within seconds of this exciting discovery, MrSweetPants was relaxing with contentment
and MrPuffyPants who appeared slightly agitated
soon succumbed to a more
rested position! That a boy!
Here MrSweetPants is showing how he fills his paws with kisses.
While Gusser was busy making kisses Ollie sang this song for me. "That a boy!", I thought. These lovely boys!

Ciao everyone!

Our world for the moment...

Some mornings I get up with a meow call, usually at 5:30, if not 5:00, and I go straight outdoors, just as any cat would do. This morning I did just that. The air was that cool temperature that is just right and smells right too. The city sounds were still not loud. We could only hear birds. Usually I look up and I see a fat bird taunting Ollie and Augustus, just like this one.
Today when I looked up I also saw MrPuffyPants,
and down below was MrSweetPants, Augustus

I thought to myself that I like this, an aerial cat. He is Wondercat and I only wish that he would wear a cape.
MrSweetPants who knew the bird was out of reach rolled in his catnip and was trying to relax.
He looked so cute that MrPuffyPants had to rush down to tickle him.
Look at him come!
He is fast like a chubby cheetah without spots.
"Here I am!", said Ollie.

We assumed the posture of wonder as we read and pondered:

"Every blade of grass has its Angel that bends over it and whispers, "Grow, grow."- the Talmud

"Nobody sees a flower- really- it is so small it takes time- we haven't time- and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time. If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment." - Georgia O'Keefe

The boys subsequently made pawfuls of kisses of the best kind and blew them in the air wishing that their lovely friends would all get one or two until their next visit.

Ciao everyone!

Custodians of the forces of love...

Every occasion with the cat boys is a rarified occasion, in my view of course. Here we were one cool, breezy, sunny, gentle afternoon last week where I took them to the back yard for treats.
As I watched "Smily", our very own MrPuffyPants,
and Augustus, also known as "MrSweetPants" in some circles,
I started thinking of how much love they spread around...Aahh, these babes
have to be the Custodians of the Forces of Love.
MrSweetPants prefers others to not know that he is SweetPants,
but he is. Just see for yourselves!
MrPuffyPants is busy and has no opinions on this matter.
We gathered, read and stared.

"The greatest gift of man is universal love - that magnet which renders existence eternal. It attracts realities and diffuses life with infinite joy. If this love penetrate the heart of man, all the forces of the universe will be realized in him, for it is a divine power which transports him to a divine station and he will make no progress until he is illumined thereby. Strive to increase the love-power of reality, to make your hearts greater centers of attraction and to create new ideals and relationships..." {Divine Philosophy}

Cat boys made pawfuls of kisses and blew them in the breeze. You may have received a few not knowing about it.

Why do I get the giggles

every time I see this dude run towards me? Is it because of his determined pace, his resoluteness, or is it that he plump cute? I usually pick him up and kiss him on his little pink lips.
Of course I do the same Augustus, no doubt.
They take turns standing by me, I suppose it means that they are my owners for that time.

Yesterday afternoon was like this. The clouds burnt away in the afternoon left behind just the kind of weather that us cats like.
Ollie wanted to know if there was something that I needed to discuss with him. He is still offering his consulting services.
His only customer, the squirrel, does not trust him and so he drapes himself far away on a branch.
Augustus only watches from behind. He often wonders about his brother with a heart filled with love.

He is always there ready to defend him.

On a different note, we were discussing excellence and perfection. I wondered if the boys knew what those attributes of perfection were. They read from heart:

"Other attributes of perfection are to fear God, to love God by loving His servants, to exercise mildness and forbearance and calm, to be sincere, amenable, clement and compassionate; to have resolution and courage, trustworthiness and energy, to strive and struggle, to be generous, loyal, without malice, to have zeal and a sense of honor, to be high-minded and magnanimous, and to have regard for the rights of others." Secret of Divine Civilization

Next time I won't ask. Cat boys readily made kisses and blew them in the air. I am sure there was one in there for each and every one of you.
