(Content Advisory: this describes the acute downturn, the final hour, and peaceful passing of our elderly kitty in my arms; ultimately, no euthanasia) [Monday 26 March 2018, taken from a personal journal entry] Had I begun this entry earlier in the day, I would have talked about how for every yang there is a yin … More ‘Other than that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?’
(Content Advisory, involving stray kitties that were originally abandoned but never harmed/injured, and ultimately rescued. This story starts out a little sad, but has an incredibly happy ending!) ❤ Five years ago, around this time of year… The little black and white cat lay stretched out on the pavement outside the door of the Visitor … More Who rescued whom?
A dear friend asked me that question, and not only is it a fair one, but a good one. And I’m sure that if one person is wondering about this, then perhaps others might be, too. And these folks deserve a good answer. I tried to provide some sort of explanation for the blog title … More What’s Who Loves Kitty about, anyway?
We’ve lived at our current apartment complex for what will soon be 5 and a half years. It’s a middle-of-the-road kind of place, the kind of place that older upper-middle-class people would choose to move to when they got tired of doing their own lawn work and other maintenance. There are also a few graduate … More Here we go again…
I don’t know why, but I feel like writing about ghosts again today. (This will probably be the last post along these lines for a while!) 😉 This one is far more benevolent than the last one. 🙂 — I had met my partner’s grandfather, “Granddad”, in 2001, along the escape route from my northern … More Cats see ghosts
I do have work to do. I will have to get to it eventually. However, my Muse tapped me on the shoulder tonight, and when she taps, you listen. I imagine she has other pupils besides me. But tonight, I was an easy target. Because tonight, I’m caught deep in the currents that I’ve come … More Calling all the angels
Because this blog is a personal one that spells out my internal thoughts at whim, its readers endure pathological randomness. Amidst the miscellany, there have been precious few consistent traditions, one of which is to reflect back upon the culminating year with the ringing in of a new one. Depending on which end of the … More Starting up a brand new year
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I wrote a post about taking your life back by implementing simple measures to reduce your stress and regain control in a stressful and out-of-control world. That post contained 10 simple suggestions; a few years later, everything in that post still rings quite true, and … More Take your life back…again
It’s been 68 empty hours and 19 minutes (it’s 7.16am now) since we let go of our little girl and released her spirit into the ether. The incredible pain she sustained transferred to us as we let her go. The death of one usually conjures up some conversation and/or thought of memories of other deaths … More Playlist: Grief and loss
The Buddhists are half-right. They believe that life is suffering, and from what I have experienced, that is entirely true. I began to suffer the moment I entered my conscious life (“conscious” pertaining to the point at which I began to form memories I can recall so many years later). But the Buddhists are also … More Shot heard ’round my world
