It’s Cat Day In Japan


    In the depth of winter, when the holidays that have so much sparkle are over, and New Years is a loooong distant memory, and the bright cheeriness of Chinese New Year has gone (along with the dim sum), and the roses from Valentine’s day have wilted, and for many snow, frost and mud have piled up…..what more is there to look forward to?     And now schools celebrate these winter doldrums by closing their doors, baracading the […]

~ The last words and thoughts for the wondrous creatures who have shared our lives are often trapped in our minds and can’t get out.

The Queen of England And Cats
Pussy cat, pussy cat, where have you been? I’ve been to London to look at the queen. Pussy cat, pussycat, what did you there? I frightened a little mouse under her chair. First published in 1805 ( and no doubt in existence for much longer) this little nursery rhyme is believed to refer to Queen Elizabeth I of England. There was a cat in the Queen’s court, apparently. To keep the mice in check. However, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who […]

Smart cat loving people will be watching the Kitten Bowl. Hosted by the great folks at the Hallmark […]

Not Into The Super Bowl? How About The Kitten Bowl?



  They come into your life. Small and helpless. With those big ears that don’t really fit their heads. Or, maybe they weren’t so young, and were adopted, and came from another life. They looked at you with some kind of knowledge of………..what is it? And those eyes. They melt your heart. These wonderful creatures become part of your life. They intertwine their lives with you and snatch time. Parts of days. Whole days. A lifetime.     And one […]

Despite being short it requires concentration and thought and students wrestle with it looking for meaning, intent and just what makes it chilling. Lurking on a shelf at the back of the library a somewhat different […]
