A new day to explore


Each day here starts with new adventures to be had and things to be explored. You might remember Noona - hyperplasia girl (and oh my goodness she was so battered when I found her) who due to a very bad case of mammary hyperplasia couldn't jump (any height at all) - even her front legs were bent due to the exess body mass. Well this morning she discovered there was a pergola roof to be explored, so up she jumped and climbed up with not much thought as how to get down again! In this image she is giving me a slightly concerned look as to say; "how do I get back down again?" - but she of course made her way down a minutte later.

The little guys (Rosie and Rufus) starts their day a bit tentative - first observing the big guys and then they jump into action. After about an hour of wild games they each find a good spot to observe bugs and birds.

I should just add a little note about my last post about Rosie. The images in the last post are already several weeks old - they were just used for comparison purposes because the poses were quite similar to her dad, but do not be fooled :-) this girl has packed some meat on those gorgeous bones!! Sometimes when I look at her I cannot believe how much she has grown in 6 weeks - it's actually quite remarkable given the state in which she was found. All the images in this post are from this morning.

Here Rufus has discovered a brilliant place to safely observe life going by - the open pergola window. He is a little miracle too - just a dearie (I promise I won't call you that when you're a big boy Rufus!) real playful, cuddly, sweet and impish. How can something so fine appear out of an early dumpster life?! He is now where he belongs - that's for sure!

There's such an essence of beauty in these little lives and they're each a true blessing in my life.

Those are such great pictures.They all look so good.They are such lucky kitties to have found you Joan.
I didn't know you had a design company.I will let you know when we are going to have another auction. The only problem would be the shipping and how much it would cost.
Little Mahoney (kitten) is doing great. Unfortunately the other cats don't like her and swat her but I am hoping soon to let her out of the bathroom.
Magnolia is going to take a really long time to socialize. She wants nothing to do with me.
Love seeing the kittens and Noona. She sure looks terrific. Take care.
Dearest Joan,

What a joy to see those darlings doing so well! Noona has come a long way and Rufus and Rosie are so happy, making up for lost time.
A killer-hug to you for making this possible for them!
Love to you,

Noona looks like a completely new cat, but the same with Rosie and Rufus... Love definitely changes everything. It's always such a great joy and inspiration to read your blog.
Oh I just love these pictures. Rosie is looking so beautiful as she grows up!

Wonderful pictures!! Reminds me of the set of playingcards I have with Greek Cats, where each card has a different cat on it. Maybe an idea to make your own cards with those cute darlings? :-) Amazing to see their progress, truly a successtory!!
