Magnanimous


Magnanimous:
Very generous or forgiving, esp. toward a rival or someone
less powerful than oneself.
Now in this case I am the less powerful one but I also have
to be the forgiving one.  She always wins!  We play tag and
she wins.  We play hide and seek.  She wins.  I was looking
at her laying on a quilt yesterday and I thought, "What a life
of luxury.  She follows me from room to room and finds a 
suitable, comfortable place to sit and watch or sleep.  She
has every comfort and food that she could hope for.  But I
love her.  It is also very nice to be able to give such a small
creature pleasure.  I can massage her neck and rub her head
and it takes me very little effort.  I wish someone could do that
for me with little effort.  Her fur is so soft and pleasing to me
that is my pleasure.  Ah, the life of the indoor cat!

She is a real cute cat ! My first cat was also completely black and lived for 20 years.
I always say, if there is a second life I want to be a cat in my home, lol !
Trout tastes .... I really don't know, but very very good ! I am not a fish specialist, the inside is white or slightly pink.

This is so weird. She could be a sister to my old cat Grey Jay. She looks exactly like him. I would think he ran away from home (you know Oregon to Oklahoma, ha ha!) if he hadn't died a couple of years back. I miss him. Thanks for the reminder today.

they give back -- even if it is just to lower my blood pressure for a few moments
