More trouble than their worth?

As you might know I have a cat.  I say I and not we as if anything were to happen to the cat I would be the one paying for it soooo I have a cat even though the family really likes him, even if they won't say it!  My cat was born outside and I came by him out of my hate of hypocrisy. I don't like when people don't take responsibility for animals they obtain and the newness wears off so they just let them run-a-muck! Well we have had some cats that are feral and usually stayed away from the house but this one had kittens and I saw them out the window and was like OHHH good more mousers!  Well at the time my precious doggy was very old and would only eat her dog food if it had water on it, and once the water was soaked up she wouldn't eat it so I was regularly throwing dog food out  off my deck not thinking of course who I might be feeding well... Momma showed the babies where a food source was and went on her way,,, leaving 4 kittens, cute ones... to fend for themselves.  OHHH what an idiot I am.

A word to the wise here, think about what you want to do and how it might affect the environment!

So now I have 4 kittens on my deck crying for food, which I take responsibility whether I did it on purpose or not, I was feeding those kittens who would die if I didn't keep it up.  So I begin the adopting of these feral kittens and they won't let us touch them, OK fine they disappear, problem solved, 2 come back, problem not solved, try to give them away can only catch one! So all I have left is the grey fuzzy one who is rather cute but very very skitish.  Over the summer we get him sorta tamed along with a cute black and white one, which get given away to a good friend who loves cats! Short and long (I know too late) I get him fixed and he is welcomed inside and is a good kitty.  Till he believes he needs to feed us and brings us a mouse which isn't dead and is loose in the house freaking the kids out.  What wuss!  Ok I was something of a wuss when it was in on my dresser at the foot of my bed one night.  I freaked but I put traps out and we caught him and returned him to nature well less well than when he left it.  However when this was all going on, where was the stupid cat?  The one who brought home food or toy not sure which was on his mind at the time. I'm thinking toy because he wasn't dead. He was outside and wouldn't come in when we called as dusk.  No doubt wondering where is toy was... stupid cat!  

Well that was a few weeks ago maybe a month, and Don told me last night he felt something crawl up his leg and it wasn't the cat. GRRR!  When did he do this again?????  Guess I'll be buying some more of those sticky box traps to put around and maybe some snappy ones under the couch.  

So tell me why do I have more mice in the house with a can then when we didn't have a cat???  Is he more trouble than he's worth???  

I guess my dad was right when he said cats were pets just like wives.  You feed them, give them shelter, take care of them (debatable with my hubby) and all you get is some amusement if your lucky!  Yes I'm a pet... good thing I amusing!  Good thing the cat is cute and has the ability to supposedly lower my blood pressure but I'm not sure about that either!

Anyone want a cat?  He's cute!

Just a thought...

about Bin Ladin... noooo I've wasted enough of my life thinking and talking about him and his kind.  So I will be asking a quick question Why do most people have a look or pain on their face when they are jogging/running?  I noted the few people who were running today while I was out and about did not look to be enjoying their activity. As a matter of fact most of them looked like they were just told they would be having a brazillian wax every day!  So... if anyone knows why people do something that makes them make such a horrible face feel free to post a comment.

I'm ready for spring!

I do believe that sometimes I admit to sticking my head in the sand an ignoring things, and I sometimes think this is a good thing, however... hummm maybe these days it isn't.  These are just a few of the thoughts floating about in my head.  

Picture this if you will a large pond or lake, body of water, with pretty trees and flowers and benches but in a very private place, a serene place. Now imagine looking out over the water seeing many thing floating there. This is the inside of my head... well my reality, I guess you would say,,, I know much prettier in the visual description than the anatomy description, so we will stick with that.  Right now my pretty serene place is full to the brim with "seaweed" if you will of thoughts.  Here are just a few pieces of "seaweed" from today, "why am I letting every little thing bother me?" "Why am I so unhappy no depressed??"  "Why do I feel guilt over not feeling more grief over mom's loss?"  "Why do I feel like something is winding me up until I explode in either anger or tears?"  "Why can't I just be normal like everyone else?"  "Am I buying into a fad "condition" (meaning depression), or is this a real problem relating to hormones." "Is this a self imposed pressure cooker I'm in??" 

All these things are clouding my nice clear visage of a beautiful smooth lake with all the goodness around it unable to be reflected. Is it just a winter thing?  Am I not getting enough Vit. D & K because I don't eat a nice balanced diet.  Will spring be the answer to clear the "seaweed" away and show my inner beauty again?  Will the spring rains cleanse away the debris?  

In any case I am ready for spring and really want to see green grass and feel warmth on my face.
