Sunday March 23

I can see the sun shining! What a glorious day! Everywhere the sun is poking in thru the windows is where the cats are--soaking it all up! Fondant is sound asleep on my desk--part of the sunshine. Good news! Two of our webcam friends were here yesterday to pick out two special cats to be theirs to love. Their chosen two are Fondant and Weeja--two great cats. They will pick up their new cats soon after Fondant is spayed. 

Our sweet handsome Garth was also adopted yesterday--a family of 4 and 2 dogs too! I've already heard from them. Garth gave both dogs a nose kiss! Their daughter has been playing with him and Garth has been purring non stop. He's also been watching the nature channel on TV! I've also heard from Remison--he's a happy boy! 

Tabaitha is not happy this morning with Wrigley.  Wrigley had the nerve to enter her paper towel nest and knock it all out of the cupboard. He sure had fun. I'm sure all will be forgiven as soon as a new roll of paper towels is put in the holder (yes, she has her own paper towel holder in her cabinet!). Tabitha would love to have a home with a family to love on--and access to a paper towel roll!

We had BOXES last night. You all are such a giving group of people in our FFRCNation. At times I wonder how I can possible let you know how grateful I am. Just know that my heart is very thankful.

Sometimes at my desk, I like to sit and watch the chat. What do I see? People being kind to one another. People answering questions that are asked. People pointing out fun things a cat may be doing or giving encouragement to one of our cats that may be struggling. People saying please and thank you and Hi and Goodbye. Just wonderful chat--I thank you for that. 

I also enjoy checking into the Facebook pages too. So many light and fun postings. Encouragement from others to those that may be troubled. People enjoying one another's cats. Great stories being told. Makes me feel good to be a part of all this. 

Update on Jemima and babies. One word could sum it up---growing! I swear hour by hour they are getting bigger! Jemima is an awesome mama. She came out several times to walk around. She's so good with the other cats.  Update on the snow mountain in back yard--one word can sum that up too--BIG.  I think it's not cooperating in melting. 

We had lots of visitors yesterday. So many people here to pet and play with the cats and kittens. They sure do love that. I noticed several of our shyer CH cats were also enjoying the pettings! Here comes Tabitha--up into my lap. Looks like she's not upset about her disturbed nest. Yes, she's happy again. 

A webcam friend sent me this--I've taken part of it and would like to share it with you:
It's great to have friends who value each other in their lives and act accordingly. Live, Laugh Love.  Life is not always the way we want it to be, but it is as it is. The way we cope with it is what makes the difference. There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad and focus on the good. So love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Live your life in a way that you feel the peace that is there for you. Enjoy your day and hug your family and pets!
