I’m really getting into gardening this spring, even though I only have a “patio garden” and have to grow all of my plants in containers.
Here is a video I did about propagating Rex Begonias from a leaf cutting.

Here is our “Cat Closet” that we built with a carpeted shelf on top, shelf on the side with a scratching post supporting it for them to climb up.

There is a smaller tan carpeted cat platform for them to leap up and down from these places, which they do so quickly that it amazes me.

I caught both Lisa and Kyoko playing with their new toy together. Of course when I took my camera out they both froze and stared at me.

Lisa was on the top shelf playing with the string part of the toy, which made the mouse below swing around.

That enticed Kyoko to bat the little white mouse toy around!

They are SO CUTE, like they were caught and felt guilty or something… poor kitties I felt like I ruined their fun.

I really enjoy making art and what better way to share it than to offer products with my art on it?

The buttons and stickers are the most affordable and could make a pretty nice gift : )

Our lovely cat Lisa has been with our family for 5 months now and its been the most wonderful time for us!

I got a comment on our facebook fan page asking to see before and after photos of Lisa and BOY DID IT TAKE A LONG TIME TO SORT THROUGH PICTURES to find the first shots i took when we brought her home.

 

Here is Kyoko saying hello to Lisa for the very first time.

And now for the Before and After adoption photos!

Here is a front shot of Lisa sitting, it doesn’t look like too dramatic of a change.

But if you look carefully you can see a difference in the texture of her fur. It was much thinner when we first adopted her.

Image

In this next photo you can see how she has gained more muscle mass, I think she even looks more confident nowadays.

Image

This next shot shows how thin she was.

When we used to pet her we could clearly feel her skeleton, especially on her hips and shoulder blades. She was pretty dehydrated.

Image

These photos are pretty clear. She was balding on her hind quarters, as you can see this is no longer the case! Thank goodness!

Image

Here is another example of how her fur used to look. It was thin on the sides around her belly. You can see the stripes that are close to her skin.

Image

Here is how the fur on the top of her neck  looked, it was thinner as well. Now she has a full glorious mane that any kitty could be jealous of!

We are so thankful that we were able to adopt Lisa from some very nice people who found her outside their workplace at a music store.

It was a miracle that happened in such an intricate way:

We wanted to adopt another cat… but we hadn’t told anyone. Then my mom visited a music store in my area and got to see a cat who the employees said was a stray. So my mom texted me the details and said that this cat may not live very long. It was my mom’s hope that i would bring the cat food or MAYBE even adopt her. Right away i was all for going to see if we could adopt this mystery cat. When we spoke to the people who had Lisa they said that they had taken her in to the vet and she turned up to be positive for F.I.V. (Our Kyoko is positive too) So they couldn’t take her home to their cat because they were afraid of the illness.

They were astounded that we came in asking about their stray cat because they had tried calling everyone that they knew to adopt her but nobody could do it. Just as we came in to the store asking about Lisa the guy said he was just getting his coat on to leave with her to the shelter. There was so much happiness in the air when we talked about adopting Lisa, both me and the shop worker had a long history of having and adoring cats so it was certain that this would be a good home for their beloved stray that they couldn’t keep.

Here is a link to Videos of Lisa on Meekucat’s YouTube Channel

She is a great cat, a best friend and a brave adventurer. Thank God for cats like Lisa.

Don’t be afraid of helping someone, animal or human just because of a “disease”. Sometimes difficulties try to hide the most worth while things in life. Be brave, be bold and give give give until everyone around you can be just as happy as you are.

May everyone have peace and love in their world!
