Is your wake-up caller furry?

MrSweetPants early-bird, rang the morning bell at 4 a.m. this morning. Today he went over to the water bowl and drank little sips, each sip shook the bowl against the ceramic tile making a ding-ding-ding noise. We had to laugh together as we heard the little tinkle bell, each morning a new trick.

Outdoors he sat with a big profile.
I had returned indoors for a while...upon my return I found him trying to sing, with his still hoarse voice.
Mr Puffy Pants was sitting a short distance away doing the same, I think he was being naughty.
Sensing that sass could present itself at any moment I asked them both to listen carefully to what I was about to read, and to my surprise they both assumed the listening posture:

Ollie showed me that he could swivel his ears back
while looking straight at me!
I imagined how nice it would be if I could do the same!
We reflected upon this reading-

"Scientist Freeman Dyson said, "The more I examine the Universe and study the details of the architecture of it, the more evidence I find that the Universe in some sense must have known that we were coming". Isn't that lovely? So, you see, if you relinquish a bit of control and fear and go over the barrier, you will find that the path ahead was waiting for you, and all the things that you need will be there." Otto Donald Rogers

After few moments of reflection the furry dudes concurred that they indeed woke up each morning knowing that the whole world was waiting for them, with all the birds, the squirrels, the fish...only if they could also be served their food and treats outdoors, then all would be well as divinely planned.

I told them that they had grand ideas and that they should meditate on them.

Ollie then went onto the high wall, made juicy kisses and blew them in the air for you along with his sweetest and best wishes!

Ciao everyone!


  1. I love "the morning bell"! Ollie and his juicy kisses. Ya gotta love that. I'm going to go home to my babies now. Have a good evening.

  2. Mr. Rodgers is speaking my language. I love this reading!

  3. That reading is very inspirational and comforting!
    So Sweetpants can sing as well? besides from being a superhero. He's a cat of many talents I must say :)

  4. You described the alarm perfectly, pets don't observe daylight savings time do they.

    I enjoyed the singing and interesting reading.

    Have a good day and a latte


  5. Grace- sometimes it is a bell and other times a kick or a bite, so pleased it was a bell...sending hugs and kisses to your babies

    Sam- thank you, we did too, we think that it is true xx

    Carolina-SweetPants indeed is a cat of many talents, he sings a lot when his voice is not so squeaky xx

    Ro- you know how it is...the latte was great and must be repeated...have a lovely one xx

  6. Today's reading warmed my heart and calmed my anxieties a little :-)

  7. Mmmm. Food and treats outside, grand ideas indeed! My boys would love that too. Next time they ask, I'll give them your response!

    Loved the reading, as always, something wonderful to contemplate.

    hugs and love!


  8. Anna- thank you, I like to remind myself of that reading too, hope you have a great weekend

    Adrienne- lovely to see you, you always make us smile xx

  9. Cat profiles...hmm...looks ominous;)

  10. love all the expressive photos:
    mouth open.
    tongue out.
    ears swiveled.

    where would we be without them??


  11. I'd like to squeeze that puff ball. Your cats don't have to be doing much. They look intelligent and naughty all at the same time. :)

  12. Your pictures are s o good!
    Oh , I love the boys singing; taking the thing so seriously. Please keep these coming. Pure honey for me : )
