It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and take a break from the busyness of the week.
Apparently September is “Happy Cat Month.” So what could be better to celebrate this than some adorable cat photos!
Some of the photos I have used in posts and some are new photos. All are from family, friends, and other bloggers.

Today we take a look back at Jack. Jack is a little dog that was found in a dumpster by a little boy. Sadly, this happens more than you think. Honestly, how can people be so cruel?
I wrote a tale about Jack back in October. Kathy, Jack’s pet parent, recently shared some photos of Jack. I decided to share them with you and give you a link to Jack’s tale.
Below is Jack happy to have tummy time. 🙂

The cat in the photo above is my cousin’s cat, Dakota. She captioned this particular photo “The Mighty Hunter.” This seemed perfect for this unplanned post.
Dakota is watching a bird in a bush but wasn’t putting a lot of effort into trying to go after it. When my cat, Cino, sees a bird her posture immediately changes to what looks like “attack” mode. There is a choice they have to make, attack or sit back and let it go.
Which choice do you make when you encounter a rude person? Do you attack and fight back or do you calmly sit back and let it go?
See the photo and read the full post here and let me know what you think.
Today I am looking back at an older Tuesday Tale of mine with some new thoughts and questions. If you have been following me for a while you may have read this post called “A Tender Moment Between A Man And His Dog.” It is about a beautiful relationship between a man (John) and his dog (Schoep). As Schoep got older and his arthritis kept him from sleeping, John would bring him to Lake Superior and hold him until he fell asleep in his arms in the water. That is John & Schoep pictured above. The picture alone speaks volumes!
This is such a beautiful story it is worth repeating. Check out the story on the Huffington Post here.
There are a few points we can take away from this story.

The Tale Of Tammy and Her Love for Animals
Many of us can relate to feeling like our house is not a home without a pet. Well this is most certainly true for Tammy.
Tammy is a friend of mine and one of the reasons we get along is our shared love for animals! We have had a number of conversations where we expressed our mutual anger for those who harm animals. I have known her for about seven years or so and just in the time I have known her, there have been many pets she has given a home.
First we have Teesha who passed away in 2008.

It’s Sunday! A time to kick back, relax, and reflect.
Many of you know about the loss of my sister. This has been a tough week, going to work, trying to act as if everything is fine. Our family has not had time for closure because we haven’t yet had the funeral. We plan to have it this week, maybe this will help a little.
I wrote a poem for today expressing some feelings I have been having through all of this and have heard other people express they felt when they lost a loved one. I hope you enjoy it.
THE WORLD DOESN’T STOP
The world is so busy
The world is so fast
Treating life like a race
How quickly time is passed
Then one day comes
When you receive a call
That one of your loved ones is gone
And now your heart takes a fall

It’s Sunday! A time for kicking back, relaxing and taking a break from it all.
I am going to keep this post short & sweet. Our family is going through something right now. It is a sad time for us. I do plan to share about it in an upcoming “Tuesday Tale.” So basically…

So do take Sunday to slow down and rest, even…

The Tale of Coolidge & Effie
Coolidge was one of the rescued kittens from a litter that was found in a field. He was a shy and timid cat, uncertain of his new surroundings, when Lauren and her husband first brought him home. (Lauren’s description sounds similar to what I experienced with Cino when I brought her home). But the patience and love they seem to have had for Coolidge eventually created a beautiful bond.
Sadly, Coolidge passed away in 2015 in Lauren’s arms. There is no replacing Coolidge (as with any animal) but there is a new cat in Lauren’s life now and her name is Effie.

I have been having fun playing with photographs lately. I decided to turn some of the photos of Cino into black & white photos. So this Sunday, I would like to share them with you. I hope you enjoy them. My favorite is the one of my hand and Cino’s paw.
Take a look.
