BLACK CAT APPRECIATION DAY

Though I have never been owned by a black cat ... I do enjoy daily life with a "black dog" who is wonderful and amazing in every possible way.  And many years ago, during another life in Florida (the years 2010 through 2012) at our home there, we tended several feral families of mostly black cats ... the mother Annie, her little ones Bravo, Charlie and Delta Dawn and about the same time, along came Annie's friend Carlacita and her brood of black kitties and tuxies.  They lived on our porch, sleeping, eating and playing there ... and romped about the backyard, often sunning themselves around the barbecue.  Over time we were able to catch and release (TNR) the kittens, though never successfully the mother cats.  At the time, life didn't allow us to bring any of them into our home ... but we loved and enjoyed them all ... and still, in my mind ... Black Cats Are Great!

A THANKFUL DAY

Today we are thankful for all who share the stories of their beloved pets with us.
We know it is not an easy thing to do ~ often when there is a loss, the pain is deep and
one would rather just "hide away" from the world.  Yet, by sharing your story,
willingly and openly you can help ease that pain, soften that loss ~ we all understand,
as each of us has at one time or another walked in your shoes.
And it is important that others speak to your loss.  So, please remember to visit
each month at Our Rainbow Friends ... when you see postings at Power of the Paw stop by
and leave comforting words for your friends.  Let them know you care.  
On August 28 the pet blogging world will honor one and all on
Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day.  Please consider being part of this very special day.
Links are below for all these blogs ~ as always, thank you.
