Pied and ginger

It was a day of golden sunshine. All day She had been working, although for a brief time we made a short trip to see the vet. As the afternoon began to pull long shadows from the sun I clawed Her out from Her studio to try and still the yawning and we walked together up the hill, and for the first time Nadolig came too.










Up the hill to the high top where bird shadows chased cloud shadows and Bella and I shared secret thoughts.















And Nadolig loved what he could see, curled up with Her, then followed back down and ate supper in the garden and sat on the windowsill as the sun went down and stars came out to light the night.
The shadowcat has stolen the moon. It will be a dark night tonight.

I love seeing Nadolig welcomed into the herd. I hope Mr. G. is home and doing well.

Glyn is still in hospital I am afraid. I have been sending his cards through to him and am told that they cheer his heart. Hoping he will be home soon and I know that Nadolig and all of the Pack and The Pride will be so pleased to see him home.
Jackdaws are checking out his chimneys for nesting again. Spring is coming.

I hope Glyn will be healed and home soon, and prayed about this.
Your post and photos are poetic and I must say, Nadolig has very smart and photogenic markings. The gingers do too, of course, so no jeolousy!

I add my best wishes to Mr. G. I hope he gets well soon.

What I wouldn't give to walk where you walk and have the Pack and the Pride with me.

Thank you for sharing this.

Bless Nadolig's sweet heart - I'm sure it was a major step for him to join in on the walk ... such a great and brave thing for him to do.

Goddess bless and keep both him and Glyn ... I'm so glad they each have such good friends in "her" and the Ginger Darlings.

So glad to see Nadolig part of the group. Your photos just touch the heart. I'm sorry Glyn is in the hospital. I must have missed that information somewhere along the way.
Blessings on him.

It touched my heart to see Nadolig walking with you and all of your photos looked so tender! Hope Glyn comes home soon and all is well!

Ann said...

What a lovely family-cats are so aware of others needs and feelings-so I am not surprised that Nadolig has been taken into the pride-inspiring images-Angie

Wonderful to see Nadolig joining you all on the walks. And what a sweet picture of Bella whispering in Pixie's ear! The view from on top of your hills is amazing...a person could stand up there watching the world go about its business for a long time.

It is so very, very good to see the pack and Nadolig. The love and friendship they share warms the heart. As does the sun! Longing for spring...

How wonderful to see Nadolig walking with the Pride and Pack... We wish everyday for his reunion with Mr. Griffiths.

It has made me so happy to see Nadolig joining in with pack and for the gingers to welcome him. I have to admit to it bringing tears to my eyes.... I think you are a very dear person for caring for Nadolig on Glyns behalf.. and for Glyn its so nice he has such a lovely lady that cares for him so! I wish him a speedy recovery so he can come home very soon and then everything will be complete.

Lovely blog - enjoyed the walk with all the cats and ddogs.

Carrie said...

I'm sure Mr Griffiths would be very glad to see Nadolig so well welcomed and content... we wish him well and to be home for spring.
A lovely pic of Bella and Pixie...

Our cat was extraordinarily brave (or lazy)today, not budging from her armchair all the way through a 3 yr olds birthday party!

Lyn said...

I am glad Nadolig went for a walk with you, he must be lonely without Mr Griffiths. I hope he got the card I made for him and he is home soon.
Love

Nadolig is a wise cat to join your Ginger family while his friend is away in the hospital. He looks slightly on the edge of the group still, but must be comforted by your care of him.

I do hope that Glyn is making a steady recovery and that he will be able to return home.

Lannae said...

My much heart felt thanks to you for caring for Nadolig. May Mr Griffiths do better and be able to care for himself again.

Jenny said...

It speaks volumes of your goodness that Nadolig is accepted into your family. Such a comfort for Mr G to know you care, I hope he gets well soon.

Claireabelle said...

Lots of love to Mr Griffiths and everyone here wishes him a speedy recovery.

Wow, what wonderful pictures of the gang taking good care of Nadolig. I remember thinking about how kindly they seemed to welcome Kiffer when he'd first arrived, and these latest pictures prove what a caring bunch the Morrises* are [2 & 4-legged :-)].

Beautiful photos - Nadolig on the pathway is stunning - truly! What magnificent creatures! Truly... xxx

As always, beautiful pictures...love the intimate closeness of the dogs with the cats and now how Nadolig has entered (literally) into the picture. Until now, I thought that the pictures were perfect with the ginger cats, but when I see the black and white of Nadolig, I realise that finally it isn't just the colour of the cats that 'make' the pictures, but really the eye and skill of the photographer taking the pictures. Always a delight to look at. Thanks for taking care of Nadolig...I'm sure he has thanked you many times, but another thank you doesn't hurt.

All of your photos are great, but Nadolig just touches at my heart.

Thanks for caring for him & please pass on more get well wishes from Scotland to Glyn.
