Folks, I am sad today. My Granmama lost her beloved Koal this morning. He was a big bear of a cat, solid black and full of personality. Koal turned up on G’s doorstep – literally – with his mom and 4 brothers. Back in 2002 when mom was living with G, she opened the door in the morning to get the morning paper and there they were- a momma cat with 5 kittens. She figured them to be about 3 weeks old as their eyes were open (barely). She and G never figured out how they came to be on the porch but the momma cat was really friendly, so of course, being the animal loving humans they are, mom and G took them in. They named the momma cat Ali (after the Aleska Resort in Alaska – they had just come back from a vacation there), the kittens were named Koal, Moose, Frankie (G kept these 3), Jade and Armand (Auntie took these two). Of the cat family, only Frankie and Moose are left. All the others are angels. I am sure Piper met Koal at the Bridge and helped him find his brothers and momma. I didn’t know Koal very well, but his passing makes my Granmama very sad so I am very sad, too. Good-bye sweet Koal. We will miss you. Sadfully yours, LadyBird
It’s time for another Cee’s Photography Share Your World! She asks the questions and you provide the answers (or, in this case, me). If you want to participate in the fun click on her pretty badge below. But don’t do it before reading my answers!!! (And yes, I used some older photos – I hope you don’t mind!)
In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?
If you were handed free opera tickets, would you go or sell them? Why?
Describe your own outlook on life in seven words or less. (NOTE: does not necessarily have to be a sentence.)
Spirituality, Food, Joy, Coffee, Peace, Family, Love
Which would you prefer: a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood?
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
You know how I love PINK! Mom was at the store the other day and saw a collar with a really pretty flower! Mom tried like crazy to get a really good photo of me in it but of course I refused! Also, I want to wish Calista Jo over at The Cat on My Head a Happy 3rd Birthday! She had a party and gave out tiaras as party favors! I LOVE tiaras! Happy Birthday CJ!

On our way to Granmama’s this last Wednesday my mother tricked me!! I thought we were going straight there like we always do when surprise, surprise, we pulled into Pet Supplies Plus! Mom said she was going to get some special food for Piper – since she is like a million years old and has lost a lot of weight but still wants to eat. Anyway, she took me to the grooming salon and that’s right – she had them clip my nails! That’s right – my nails. I hate having my nails done! And then afterward she disappointed me even further by – well, you’ll see later. Oh my, moms sure are troublesome sometimes, aren’t they? It’s a good thing I love her! Barkingly yours, LadyBird
