I don’t normally post on Sundays, not that I’m anti-religious or anything, it’s just that no-one reads them so why bother writing them. However seeing as I’m posting everyday for BloMonth, then that means I’m going to have to post on Sundays too, in that case it might as well be a Sunday Service. So pull up a pew, get out you hymnal and be ready to feel the spirit (or maybe my hand on your butt).
Today’s Service is to remember Beep, who has gone to a better place. She was a good little cat who never really flourished here due to all the other animals getting in her face all the time. Whenever it was just me and her in the house she was a completely different cat, friendly and confident, but when there were other animals around she would go to her safe place and stay there. I think this is because she came from a one pet home (her previous care giver was a little old lady who died). So is is with a sense of sadness that prepare myself for life without her.
But don’t you feel sad, when I say she’s gone to a better place I mean it. She’s gone to live with my very good friends. "How good a friends are they?"
"Well I was the best man at their wedding"
They lost the cat they had taken in some time ago and fate put all the pieces of the puzzle together last time I was on the Coast. After having a prescription filled not far from where they live, and despite it being a working day (both of them have jobs), I called around on impulse and lo and behold (that’s Sunday speak) Ruth was home (come to think of it, that’s a biblical name too). While we were having coffee, I got my blog up to show her some pictures of the critters and somehow we got talking about Beep and how she wasn’t all that happy about all the animal activity around my place.
Next thing you know we’ve come to an agreement that they would take over her care. This was not a decision made to benefit me (I’m well and truly out of pocket), plus you don’t even notice one extra animal with all the ones I’ve got up here, and she was no trouble (in fact she was the least hassle of all the cats up here). No, it was done with Beep’s interests at heart, I just want the best for her, it’s not her fault the old lady died and left her orphaned. I’ve known Joel for almost 20 years, and he’s great with cats (as is Ruth). In fact here he is playing with Buzz when he was only about 5 months old…
Plus his cats have always been well tempered and totally non neurotic which speaks volumes, so Beep will love it there, and she will be loved.
Hey while we’re speaking about pet loving, get a load of this! This is some inter-species lovin’. Luckily with Belle being a girl at least they’re not homos like Buddy and Bentley…
I can’t be completely sure of this, but it seems to me that Beau is looking at Buddy kinda funny, I think he’s trying to get a ménage à trois going.
The noise you hear in the background is rain, in case you were wondering.
