Updates & News

Hello to all my fellow cat lovers and lovers of stories about cats. I know it has been a long time since I posted on this blog. No, I hadn't forgotten about it, I was just at a loss of what type of content I wanted to place here while waiting for the editing and re-writing phase to transpire on Tales of The Cat's Eye Gang.

I suffered a stretch of Depression that made it hard for me to get out of bed let alone touch any of my work. Tales sat in a pile of "To Be Dones" for so long that when I did finally get around to opening it dust flew causing me to sneeze. Yeah, I didn't feel like cleaning either. Just as I began to find some energy and interest in life again I suffered a setback in the form of losing my Mom just days after Thanksgiving. In fact, I lost her the day before her 75th birthday. That threw me for a loop. I thought I had prepared myself for her loss but I was nowhere near it. 

I thought I had finally made my peace and then Mother's Day arrived. As the decorations and commercials began I found myself thinking about her daily. I had realized a couple months before that I hadn't even cried for her. I still didn't cry until a couple of days ago.  I am finding that her passing is going to be different from what I felt at the loss of my Dad and Grandmother. I had so many more emotions involved when it came to accepting her death. Every day has been a new rush of broken, hurt feelings sneaking out from under my proverbial closets door.  

Instead of working on editing and then the re-write that I know is on its way, my days have been spent writing about my Mom and those feelings. Just remember I haven't forgotten you, my trusty readers. I have decided to post photos of the cats that gave creation to my book and some other cat memes, jokes, and other stuff I have found around the web. I hope they lift your spirits as they have mine.  The opening picture is of Miss CeCe's paw. I think she has the cutest tootsie's around and just had to take some pictures.

And just for kicks.

And as you can see I always have a black cat near me even when I drive. You can actually see the pile that I spoke of earlier in the background. Funny how those piles seem to grow. Every time I get to the bottom, it regrows overnight.

I hope that you enjoy these photos of our Queen of Mithral.
