Miss Em and I

It was a snowy afternoon yesterday, so Miss Em and I sat by the fire for awhile and chatted.
She gave me pause.
I told her my tale and she told me hers.
Ah, the country life.

That is a wonderful story that played on the words so happily.

Ahhhh Miss Em is just to cute. Love the story. :) Clever Suki. :)
We have a wood stove too but we have no window to see the fire. But it heats wonderfully.

Oh meant to say she looks like a Cat my friend in CA just adopted this week. She named it Lillie. 2 years old and declawed. They just bring joy to our lives. ;)

Dear Sukie

I like your post: "what women want". like you I want to visit different places, and read books and watch movies. I hope you may find what you want in your life and enjoy every moment. What a beautiful heart you have on the right margin of your blog. It is so colorful.

Loved this story/poem/cat chat you had with Ms Dickenson. Lovely lovely cat too she is.
Seems you are still there and not on the road. Maybe waiting for spring now?

Suki, I just got the comment about your storage and travel issues. I'm glad you are not going now, and happy that your friend is moving things for you. That's great. Better when the weather clears! At least that would be my choice were I there.
I hope your posting comments problem clears up too. Perhaps it already has.

Best way to spend a chilly afternoon - curled up with a cat!

Thanks all. I found Miss Em at the vets about 10 years ago. They had a section of cats for adoption. Miss Em was lying on her back looking up at the ceiling with a little smile on her face. Immediately I said I would like her. It was hard at first as she kept attacking my ankles and biting me. But finally when I let her outside for the first time in her life, she eventually stopped biting me. She doesn't like to get in my lap like Bibs does, but she will throw herself on the floor and look up at me when she wants to be petted. she's a gem.

Wow... she IS beautiful with those patches of color... My daughter and I just watched her with lots of oohing and aahing... praising her beautiful neat paw!
