Dragon hunting on a blue sky day.



As Pixie snuffles and Maurice struggles to breath I have to walk alone. But still there are three. And as I walk there are three. Me, my shadow and the puddle cat. So, over the hill and far away for She is hunting dragons again.

 


On the high hill top we stop, we rest and She takes out Her small black book. Scratch scratch and the paper and a cold wind blows so I sneak inside her fur for warmth.

 




Back home, Max was disguised as an egg. Lazy cat.

I'm sorry to hear the others are not well. It saddens me to think they cannot join you as I know how much they loved that. Have a wonderful week. I enjoy your posts. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x5

I love to see Elmo out on his adventures again.

That definitely looks like a landscape with dragon hatching potential

John said...

I love photo 4, a masterpiece! I hope Pixie and Maurice are able to join you soon.

The Ginger Darlings said...

Sorry, John. Maurice barely has breath to walk around the garden. Has steroid injections every other week and is looking quite worn and Pixie may never shake her cold. Sometimes she bears it well but it seems to get worse.
Both out enjoying the sunshine today though.

Sending blessings to your two poorly cats. We could all do with some sun, I think!

Can't the vet do anything for poor Pixie?

John said...

Peace to Maurice and Pixie, and warm sunshine.

Griffin said...

I love that picture of Max, keeping his nose warm with a paw, but Elmo the Magnificent is glorious.

I do feel for Maurice having injections. I hate those. I hope Pixie-cat will shuffle off that annoying cold in the sunshine. At least we're getting some sunshine now.

Dougie Donk said...

Even though their range is restricted, I'm sure Maurice & Pixie know that you are doing everything to keep them comfortable & able to enjoy the sunshine.

Warm thoughts to you all & best wishes to Glyn & Nadolig too (must be time for an updat on them?)

Looks very Springy over there! We are looking at 3 feet of snow outside our windows and it's -27 with the wind chill. The PM was planning on staying in yet saw the four crows that she feeds sitting in the pines, looking forlorn. She bundled up and gave them a mexican meal of left over black bean and sweet potato. She also made them a couple of peanut butter toasts.

Spring will soon be sprung in Wales Jackie, so lets hope that some sunshine and longer days will help Pixie and Maurice.

The phrase, "I sneak inside her fur for warmth" and the accompanying photo will stay with me forever.

Bundles of love to Maurice and Pixie from four cats in Silverton, Oregon, who dream of walks in places like that. They think Elmo has great lips!
