What Could Be Better

What could be better than a cat staying up with you all night because you cannot sleep?
What could be better than a cat following all steps you take?
What could be better than a cat jumping on the sofa next to you to sit there and nowhere else?
What could be better than a cat looking at you with huge black eyes asking for snuggling?
What could be better than a cat having a peaceful nap beside you?
What could be better than a cat purring into your ear?
What could be better than a cat leading you to the bedroom to tell you it's really time to sleep now?
What could be better than the blissful moments we are experiencing with cats?

Just this morning we sadly learned about the loss of one of long time beloved furfriends, Miss Scarlett. 15 year old Scarlett went to the Rainbow Bridge on May 22 and her brother Mr. Rhett and Mom and family miss her so much. Please stop in and send a purr or two.

Our lives are shaped as much by those who leave us as they are by those who stay. Loss is our legacy. Insight is our gift. Memory is our guide.


  1. We tell Rumblemum this alllll the time, and we feel that we should be given tunas. As should you guys.

  2. That's right! What could be better. Kenggy is sleeping at my feet while I leave my comment here. :)
