Friday thriving

Friday, January 22, 2021

1. Carry on with yesterday’s loose ends
2. One deep clean project
3. Three health MISSIONS: 8 water, 20 min recumbent bike, make a social connection

It’s an absolutely gorgeous day here on Florida’s west coast. Husband went off to his market job early this morning. He wasn’t sure if he’d be at the market the whole day or be putting in some time on the farm itself. Last week he spent the morning picking strawberries. That’s easier than it sounds, thanks to vertical growing units. He’s rather hoping to do it again since he gets to nibble and pick.

I’ve had a tasty breakfast of ham, a piece of French toast, raspberries, and coffee. I’ll have salad with salmon for lunch. Her Highness will expect her share of my salmon as she did my breakfast ham. I’ve never had such a spoiled cat, but neither have I had one live this long, so she’s worth spoiling.

We’d been in this house just a year when we brought her home from the Humane Society. At the time, there wasn’t enough space in the indoor cat area so when cold was predicted, a call would go out to for cold weather fosters. As it turned out, we weren’t needed that time, but as we walked through the outdoor cat area, a feisty little black cat playfully stuck out a paw. I had lost my beautiful cat of cats, Sable, only a month before and hadn’t planned to get another cat so soon, but this little kitty was irresistibly cute and just bursting with personality. We agreed she was coming home with us. Miss Moppet in her low basket with heating mat to warm her little old bones:

    How old is Miss Moppet? We had a kitty we adopted when she was five. A beautiful, calico who lived up to her name: Spunky. The poor thing was terrorized when she came into our home. She lived with a single woman as an only pet for the first five years of her life. This friend of mine was moving to China and couldn’t take Spunky w her. I have a soft spot for calicos, so I pounced on the offer to adopt her. Poor Spunky was shocked...she entered a chaotic household of 4 children and a dog. She hid for quite a while, and gradually figured out how to get along w everyone.

    She lived to be 18, so we had her for 13 blissful years. And like you, she became quite spoiled in her later years. Esp since she developed kidney disease and started wasting away. We let her eat whatever she wanted. Her favorite was milk from the cereal bowl after my DH’s bedtime snack. Then she would curl up in my lap and purr her contentment.

    She was a sweet kitty and I was glad we were able to give her a good life. Sounds like Miss Moppet has one too. Enjoy every moment!

    The very best pets are often unexpected gifts in our lives. My Shadow was a give away from the hospice CNA who cared for my mom. The aide was moving out of state and couldn't take a big dog to her new apartment. My brother drove over to her home, Shadow hopped into his pickup truck, and instantly loved us all. It was as if she knew we were grieving my mom's recent death, and she was there to help us heal.
