The skies were blue on that first day of 2014.
I found the cat boys at their usual best...Mr Puffy Pants spying on
Mr Sweet Pants who was checking the electric circuit boxes.
We decided to join them....
MrLittleJeans grabbed the Sweet Pants by his tail for a kiss on the wall while
I got busy gathering grass for Mr Puffy Pants ...
who munches on salads like no other cat we have seen.
Mr Sweet Pants exclaimed that his brother was still funny in 2014 as he was before and we think that he is right.

I asked the salad muncher
and Sweet Pants
to assume a posture of active listening so we could reflect on this passage....

"The dimension that counts for the creative person is the space he creates within himself.  This inner space is closer to the infinite than the other, and it is the privilege of the balanced mind... and the search for an equilibrium is essential- to be aware of the inner space as he is of outer space."

This quote is a favorite of the cat boys who believe that an open inner space is essential to living a balanced life.  We discussed this at length and to our satisfaction by staring at each other for a long time.  When all were satisfied the cat boys made pawfuls of kisses and blew them in the air for a Happy 2014!

Ciao everyone!


  1. Great photos! Sweet Pants looks so regal in the last one. Your kitties know how to live and I love their favorite quote. A very Happy New Year to you, Mona.

  2. The boy cats have it right as usual and I agree that an open inner space is essential. Mind you, they also seem to enjoy the open outer space as well.
    Happy New Year Mona

  3. Lol. Checking the circuit boxes!
    I think you can tell on the outside if a person has harmony inside.
    Another constant practice, for me anyway.
    Wow. It is so dang good to see the Jeansy family in this promising new year!

  4. had to laugh at mister little jeans grabbing augustus by the tail. mister pencilfox does that all the time to angelo, and i holler at him "don't grab my cat by the tail!"

    sending the little jeans family love and kisses on the wind!


  5. Sanda- Happy New Year to you and family....I too like that last pose, that's a new one for him : )

    Helen-an open inner space would be really refreshing, as well as an open outer space (what am I doing in a city?)- Happy 2014, I hope it is a delightful one for you xx

    prairiegirl- great to see you too and I loved the yurt pictures...happy 2014 xoxo

    mrsfox- Gussy has the sort of tail that serves well as a handle, I have to laugh at them both...receiving your love (box of gems) and returning hugs and warm wishes xo

  6. Oh sweet friends!
