Life as a cat

Life as a cat.

Do you ever wonder about how life would be different if we were all cats?

Cats (housecats) are amazing creatures.
They love unconditionally.
They find interest in the smallest things i.e. a piece of paper, cardboard box, a lightening bug ECT.
They are simple and have very little needs.
Food, Shelter and Love.

Humans and Felines are quite similar, if one was to break down the schematics of both lives.

We as humans, choose to dive into problems, chaos, drama, unneeded material items ECT.

Why?

Is this a learnt behavior?
Possibly.

I watched my cat (kitten) climb a huge Dogwood tree today.
She didn't hesitate.
She wasn't scared.
She didn't stand at the bottom and debate the potential risks.

She just climbed the tree.
Explored the tree.
Are a couple of leaves and climbed down.

How peaceful it must be to be a cat.

Poinsettias plus 3

I always enjoy fresh flowers, picked out of the yard or given to me sweetly by my boyfriend or children.
Thanks to Home Depot, here are three pet friendly, Holiday Season flowers to brighten any one's day.
Facts about poinsettias:
1. The poinsettia is a member of the Euphorbiaceae family aka  Euphorbia pulcherrima Wild in which there are 700-1000 species.
2. The poinsettia is native to Mexico.
3. Due to the brilliant color, The Indians (Aztecs) considered the poinsettia a symbol of purity.
4. According to www.petpoisonhelpline.com
The white milky SAP found in poinsettias contains a chemical called a diterpenoid Euphorbol esters and saponin like detergents. Though this plant has been said to be poisonous to children and animals, they generally are not.
Signs of ingested plant are just mild dermal irritation, possible vomiting, drooling or diarrhea. All side effects, generally do not require medical attention unless the side effects are severe.
***Of course, use common sense when tasting poinsettias.
I am not a doctor and my advice is merely as such, advice.
Please consult your primary care physician or call 911 if you are faced with an emergency.***

So it was...

The life as it once was ...
No longer exists.

The aroma of fresh linens, baby powder and fresh air dissipates as the minutes tick...

New words, smiles and giggles
Are replaced with crayon drawings and fruit loop necklaces.

Mama replaced with C-A-T and C-A-R.

Pudgy rolls upon the legs of the new, form into muscle and the newness has faded...

No longer 2t, 5t or Juniors...

Muscles stretch and lengthen,
As bones grow.

Learning sounds and singing the ABC's gradually become Lol's and WTF's.

Birthday invitations, football games and play dates become fewer and fewer...

Smiles and giggles are gone.
Eye rolls and secrets become an unwelcome intruder.

Speaking together and family time, game night disappears with the ticking of the clock.

Faces become faint memories.
Hugs remembered with tears.

The scent of sweat, dirty boy and bonding is gone...
Replaced with saltiness, empty and lonely.

Times past are just a memory.
Memories hold the pieces together.

Nothing left to be broken.

The bird cannot fly without its wings.
