Is it silly or insignificant?

The loss of a loved one…a human is profound. What is it about the loss of a pet that we take into our lives, or is it the other way around? Profound loss, I say. Months later it brings tears. So powerful was the influence of Emma Louise in our lives that even today the mere mention of her name or her image causes a pause for reflection and an audible or silent homage.

Less evident are the pet’s feelings left behind. I am convinced they suffer affliction to their routines, patterns and yes hearts! Harley, was very close to Emma.

Harley has seemed at a loss for the last six months since Emma passed. Time has passed but the routines are different now. Harley seems to be much more dependent now even with lots of loves. The nuisance and teasing of two cats has not lifted Harley’s spirits.

When I come across the postings of folks that lose a pet, my eyes well up for their loss and for my unresolved loss. So it is.

Cat Lovers Only…

She raises her head to gaze outside. It’s cold and windy out there. Normally, she would sit atop her perch, by the window, to take in every fleeting thing. The humming bird feeders would definitely draw constant attention. But, not today…Penny the Cat’s head is heavy. She prefers, today, to lounge at the end of the couch, eyes closed and mind at ease. Her lazy, shedding days certainly infects my energy levels. So much to do outside, but maybe tomorrow………..

The Look: Slowly move away

Yes, that’s the way Penny the Cat rolls. A bit unpredictable. Her look telegraphs her intent every time. Ignore it at your own peril. The only saving grace is she does not attack without provocation (well intended rubs, pats, scrunches). Direct pressure works. Wash the wounds.

Polar Bear’s Playful Moments With Sled Dogs

Polar Bears and sled dogs play together. Seems magical, but then it seems that way when my little alpha’s Penny & Harley relax long enough to seem gentle.

Photographing a Lazy Cat in the Sun

Seriously, you wonder, what is the fascination with Penny the Cat? Well, like most cats she is fiercely independent, aggressive at times (last night she attacked my toes in bed…my dogs don’t do that thank goodness), she likes my fly tying materials as much as I do and when she slows down into her lazy mode I seem to relate to her lounging in the sunlight. Turn away if you hate cats because this is a celebration of a lazy cat…Penny the Cat.

Ok, the last shot gives some indication that her alert button is activated.
