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!
