Awww Mondays

Audrey and Raleigh play hard for an hour or two a day, and then it is time for an extended extended session of napping. They both enjoy the cat trees in the bedroom, as evidenced by many photos I have recently shared. We discovered Raleigh in this position during a nap two days ago.


Orange kitten napping with head resting on edge of cat tree and against a wall.

You may have noticed he is wearing a different harness than the one he’s previously been seen wearing. He and Audrey are growing so quickly that we already had to ditch the original kitten harnesses. Raleigh now has the blue one you see, and Audrey has a new pink one.

I think you’ll agree with me there is nothing more “awww” worthy than a baby animal of any species.

Awww Mondays is a blog hop hosted by Comedy Plus. Raleigh will be participating and you can do the same by clicking on the “awww” badge.



Blue Ridge Parkway sunrise among clouds in colors of gold and mauve with the following quote from St. Francis de Sales: Make friends with the angels, who though invisible are always with you. Often invoke them, constantly praise them, and make good use of their help and assistance in all your temporal and spiritual affairs.


I wanted a Spark about angels, and this one spoke to me. I imagine those invisible angels floating just above the clouds in another of Dad Tom’s photos. This too was taken at sunrise from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie is taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Many of us still continue to post a Spark on Monday, as we believe in Annie’s vision: “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!”

The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky

This fun-loving, tabby duo will return tomorrow with the next installment in their adventure series. It is Periwinkle’s week to plan and post their adventure, so look for them at Friends Furever tomorrow. I know both Periwinkle and Stinky will be looking forward to seeing all of you.

Wishing all in the USA a happy Labor Day.

Kittens are so cute, but they really do have two speeds — 100 mph or zero mph. 🙂

I don’t think you hoomans realise how exhausting life is for we cats. It’s very tiring being adorable all day long!

Yes, there are supernatural angels among us, doing good things.
Raleigh is an adorable kitten, and looks sweet in his new harness (but he would look sweet no matter!).

Awww. What a cutie pie. I agree with you on baby animal of any species. So true.

Love your Spark. I love my angels.

I never miss The adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky.
