Marmee’s Purrr-fect Solar Eclipse

Marmee has been very thoughtful over the past few days.


She’s been hearing all about the solar eclipse, and wants everyone to be SAFE about how they celebrate this celestial event.


So she’s given me a list of her top ten tips to pass along to you that are sure to make the experience both fun AND safe!


#1. To limber up a bit, do a few chair stretches.


#2. Next, stake out your favorite spot.


#3. Make sure you neck roll your way slowly, slowly to the floor.


#4. Roll over on your back, time for a few belly-up stretches.


#5. Now reach up and give that ear a nice scratch.


#6. Don’t forget to keep breathing, in and out, in and out.


#7. Time for just one more stretch, this time for the neck and shoulders.


#8. One more big ole’ yawn…

#9. Oh yes! and one last face washing (one must always look their best for any heavenly event!)


#10. And now… the most important step of all.

Breathe deeply…

And CLOSE YOUR EYES.


Sounds like the purrrrfect way to enjoy the solar eclipse – and a NAP – to me!

PS And something tells me that Marmee’s solar eclipse maaay just last a wee bit longer than 2 and a half minutes.   😉

Kitty Snowglobe

It looks like we finally got some snow overnight.

marmee54-blogMarmee was the first one to notice.

marmee185-blogShe loves to watch the snowflakes swirl across the deck.

marmee57-blogEspecially if the sun comes out later on and she can catch a few rays right around nap time.

marmee191-blogJust don’t get any cute ideas about asking her to shovel.

marmee195a-blogNo siree no way, no how.

marmee251-blogFor Marmee, it’ll be more of a snowglobe experience.

And I wouldn’t have it any other way, ‘cuz she’s even more fun to watch than the flakes!

Feelin’ Duckie

Marmee came home from her doc appointment this morning and everything went great!

You see Marmee was a rescue. And from what we know she had a pretty scary past. She didn’t feel safe, and she never came “first” to anyone.

‘Til she came here.

Blog-Marmee148Where she is always “first”. In fact, she’s everything to us.

And we have a wonderful vet who “gets it” with Marmee and how much she means to us, too.

I can tell you today I don’t think this girl was ever more glad to see her yellow duckie when she got back home…

marmee337b-blogAnd as she cuddled up with her yellow pal…

marmee337e-blogBack in her home once again…

marmee337f-blogIn the sunshine…

marmee337g-blogShe relaxed.

And so did the rest of us.

Blog-Marmee332Last time I checked…

Everyone was doin’ just fine.

marmee337d-blogAnd feeling grateful to be HOME.  ❤
