Countdown

Greetings, Fellow Felines (and C-a-n-i-n-e-s and Humans too)!

We are so excited, my Human and I. Well, I am, anyway. In just six weeks, she will be starting two months paid leave purr-rior to her retirement. That means she will be able to spend all day and every day with Moi, attending to my needs and pampering Me. How happy She must be!

Of course, she has a few plans of her own. She says she's going to learn a couple of fur-eign languages - like Italian and Welsh. And she's thinking of learning to play a musical instrument, maybe the clarinet. Well, that's fine with Me, as long as she doesn't forget her duties, such as feeding Me five times a day, petting Me and keeping Me amused. I've been feeling rather lonely since Pixie flew away to the Bridge, but now I will have company around the clock. Of course, I shall allow her some time off to purr-sue her own activities. I'm a very considerate employer and, after so many years of faithful service, she has earned a little time for herself, don't you agree, Kitties?

Six weeks - that's 42 days, Fellow Felines. I can hardly wait...

Shabbat Shalom to you all. Have a lovely weekend! 

PS. I almost forgot - see what a lovely picture Mummy took of me. And without waking me up with the flashy box either!

Hello Possum, I found you on my friend Keisha'a blog. It is nice to meet a cat from far away in Jerusalem. I live in Adelaide South Australia.
Sorry to hear of the loss of your dear Pixie.
