Cats in their own worlds...

each one exploring a part of the universe.

In Guss' present world sits a sassy bird on top of a spiky palm.
Augustus decided to sing the 'come-hither' tune, you know the one where they vibrate their vocal chords.
The gaze he threw my way said "why doesn't the birdie fly into my reach?"
He agreed to stare and enjoy.
Ollie's present world is the dangerous wild savannah, he still pays daily visits to this personal playground of his.
I only need to see a little bit of him at all times; besides that I am ok taking him out there.
Okay, he is done. Time to go.
Our very own wild lion walking down the street ready for breakfast and newspaper!

Later when we gathered on the patio, they breakfasted while I read to them the story of the worlds...

"As to thy question concerning the worlds of God. Know thou of a truth that the worlds of God are countless in their number, and infinite in their range. None can reckon or comprehend them except God, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise. Consider thy state when asleep. Verily, I say, this phenomenon is the most mysterious of the signs of God amongst men, were they to ponder it in their hearts. Behold how the thing which thou hast seen in thy dream is, after a considerable lapse of time, fully realized. Had the world in which thou didst find thyself in thy dream been identical with the world in which thou livest, it would have been necessary for the event occurring in that dream to have transpired in this world at the very moment of its occurrence. Were it so, you yourself would have borne witness unto it. This being not the case, however, it must necessarily follow that the world in which thou livest is different and apart from that which thou hast experienced in thy dream. This latter world hath neither beginning nor end. It would be true if thou wert to contend that this same world is, as decreed by the All-Glorious and Almighty God, within thy proper self and is wrapped up within thee. It would equally be true to maintain that thy spirit, having transcended the limitations of sleep and having stripped itself of all earthly attachment, hath, by the act of God, been made to traverse a realm which lieth hidden in the innermost reality of this world. Verily I say, the creation of God embraceth worlds besides this world, and creatures apart from these creatures. In each of these worlds He hath ordained things which none can search except Himself, the All-Searching, the All-Wise. Do thou meditate on that which We have revealed unto thee, that thou mayest discover the purpose of God, thy Lord, and the Lord of all worlds. In these words the mysteries of Divine Wisdom have been treasured."(Gleanings)

The reading seemed to please the cats because they immediately prepared kisses that they sent flying into many worlds. We hope that you caught a few.

Ciao everyone! Enjoy the weekend of your world!


  1. He looks like such a lion in that grassy area! So precious!


  2. I LOVE it when kitties sing the 'come-hither' tune, but I'm also glad that birdies can fly :-).

  3. I always think it looks so cute when cats meow to birds, but really it translates as "Yes, I'd love to eat you."

  4. ollie is a lion in the savannah.
    gus is "striped" like the palm.

    thank you, boys, for the wind-blown kisses: i got TWO all the way up here in alaska!

    [AMEN to the reading.]
