Thoughts on a Special Day
Today (Heart Day) Minnie will be 11 years old. I adopted her in January 2004 , two months after Master Purrby (1994 – 2003) went to Rainbow bridge.
The Cat that listens
When I say”Come, Minnie” she appears in moments
If I say “Are you hungry” she says “meow”
I say “Let’s Go” she “meows” and meets me in the kitchen.
She sprawls her fluffy self over the center of my chest and lays still
Our hearts beat together and feelings of contentment wash over me
She hums her perfect purr.

Heart Day Pies and a Full Moon too
Minnie is almost ten. She celebrates on Heart Day, the 14 th.
She is petite, soft, cuddly and lovable purrfection.
She has always allowed me to throw her over my shoulder or carry her in my arms.
Her tale rattles like a snake with out the sound. I call her rattle tail.
She has a Om sound she makes. It, rather emanates on its own. It is the primal sound of the universe.
China is called Curley Tail. She is almost two.
China is more aloof. She bullies poor Minnie.
She speaks too me…sounds French and I do not comprehend the language. I swear it sounds like “Hello” She chatters non-stop at times.
Yesterday she finally allowed me to cut her razor sharp talons that were a hazard to herself and others.
They both are my babies. They share there Den with a brother called Shy Guy. His sister Cinnamon Swirl went to Rainbow Bridge in 2010.
Feed Me Now~If you do not get up I will bite you harder till you do. Minnie is missing three canine teeth.(the pointy front ones that look like fangs)
