Three Kitties and a Baby

Is there anything cuter?

Recently, I got to take the grand baby and my two little younger girls to see three four-week-old kittens.

And…OH MY WORD…four-week-old kitties are SO CUTE! And no, I don’t need another animal, but I miss my B&W cat. I miss an indifferent pet that doesn’t follow me from room to room, making me trip, stop, and swerve just to get around my house. I miss the soft fur and how they keep themselves clean. I miss the sound of purring and they way they rub their face on your leg.

I miss having cats so much, I started feeding the neighborhood stray cats, except, I don’t think they are stray. I bet their owners wonder why they are getting so chunky. Ha.

My cat, Gidjet, had the coolest vibe. She meshed with the dogs and didn’t let anything phase her. She could “talk” and open doors. I only wanted to yell at her when she brought half-alive mice in the front door, but I knew it was an act of love….so how could I be mad? She has been gone for many years now. It’s finally been long enough that I think I could accept another cat, not to replace her, but to remember her playful spirit.

But back to the kitties. The sweet four-week-old kitties who will just be old enough to bring home on Bridget’s birthday. And the question is…do we or don’t we?

The baby loved the kitties and she is not quite mobile enough to get close. The girls went nuts (as you can see).

And the kitties, well, they all seemed to go with the flow. Even Mama didn’t mind us handling her younguns’.

And who knows? Maybe, I can talk my husband into a kitty…

Or maybe the birthday girl can talk him into a kitty…

Or maybe one of these cute faces will do the trick. No matter what happens…we had a blast visiting. We love the kitties and do hope they find good homes. I wish I could take them all. Then, I could start a show – Seven Pets and Counting.

Just kidding, honey (ha ha ha!).

WordPress tells me today is my 5th year of blogging. Happy Blogiversary to me! I think a really nice anniversary present would be a kitty, yes?

Birds of the Dallas Zoo

Of all the animals and sights to see at the Dallas Zoo, I had no clue I would fall madly in love with the birds of the zoo. These photos represent a small chink in the variety and multitude of the birds on exhibit there.

In fact, these photos are from only ONE of the exhibits, specifically, the bird aviary in the Children’s zoo section called, Travis & Zach’s Birds Landing. What makes this exhibit even more unique is the beautiful garden the birds live in and how all the birds have been hand-raised.

I think the birds had me at the very first flush of feathers right in the entryway.

Hello friends.

A fella that knows how to find the best perch.

My friend and guide of the exhibit.

Hope you enjoyed their charm as much as I did.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong

Hmmmm..something is not right with this picture. That doesn’t look like your average garden gnome.

I think someone got lost.

Way lost.

Yes, I’m talking to you.

You are not the garden gnome I imagined gracing my blooms.

Not even close.

Of course…….it’s better than a skunk or a mole, but not quite as cute as a bunny.

Although, your bushy tail is VERY charming. And your adorable twitchy nose gives me fits.

Maybe I dislodged your treasure when I planted new flowers today?

I apologize.

How RUDE of me to actually use MY garden.

I know.

Surprised me too.

No hard feelings…..mkay?

And Happy Hunting!

The challenge this week is WRONG. Check out what other wordpress bloggers are picturing wrong at The Daily Post.

San Diego’s Pink Ladies

How about a little glitz and glam from the lovely pink ladies of the San Diego Zoo….

A place I LOVE to visit.

A city I long to return to.

By the way…the watermark is correct. These are not my photos. I STOLE them (gasp!)

Do you feel cheated? You shouldn’t. I am SO PROUD of these photos. They were taken by my sweet multi-talented husband Jason. He had one of my extra cameras during our trip to the zoo last year.

I was shocked when I saw his images. Some of his photos are better than mine – the so-called professional of the family. But you know what? I got over it.

I LOVE THESE IMAGES. I love everything about them. Not just because, they are really, really good, but because on that day, he chose to share a hobby with me. Something I can go back, and remember….time and time again.
