Like most kitties, Audrey finds her human’s suitcase irresistible. And, as always happens, she was not invited along on the trip, thus her disgruntled look.
If you enjoyed this photo, check out another displeased, suitcase cat at, “Dad Tom Gets Kizmet’s First Stink Eye.”
Though Audrey didn’t get invited to join her dad for a night out of town, she is joining the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. If you’d like to do the same, click on the Awww badge.
Growing up I always strived for perfection. Of course, I never achieved it, and I am trying to learn that just doing my best is okay.
The author of today’s Spark, Henry Jackson van Dyke Jr. (1852 – 1933) was an American author, educator, diplomat and Presbyterian clergyman. He graduated from the College of New Jersey in 1873 and Princeton Theological Seminary in 1877.
Dad Tom took this photo of a male house finch on one of our bird feeders.
Sparks is the creation of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend. Annie stated when she began Sparks, “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
Those two fun-loving tabbies, Periwinkle & Stinky, will be setting off on a new adventure tomorrow. You’ll be able to find them over at Friends Furever, as it is Periwinkle’s turn to plan their adventure. Adventures are more fun when you join in, so they’ll be waiting for you.
That spark is truly wonderful, Janet. Thank you for sharing that!
Audrey, we feel you. Our angels Moosey and Graphite were notorious for trying to be suitcase stowaways.
I love today’s Spark. Dear Audrey, yoo don’t want to travel. Trust me. Better to stay at home and feel secure rather than travel a long distance where yoo have to stay in a cat carrier and poo in a foreign box. I went to Blogpaws and let me tell yoo, there was never a more unhappy kitteh than me. Momma learned her lesson. Love, Dori
I do the same thing when I see a suitcase!
Kizmet is a daddy’s girl!
That is a great spark and photo. And Kizmet is a cutie even with the stink eye. XO
We’re not fans of those suitcase things either sweet Audrey. That was a really good Spark!
Audrey is a cutie, even when a bit miffed! Terrific bird picture and good spark!
Your peeps are leaving without you? The nerve. Great shot.
Love the Spark. So very true.
I never miss the adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky. See you over there tomorrow morning.
Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Scritches all around, a smooch to Cooper Murphy and Sawyer and a big hug to mom. ♥
Audrey might be a bit disgruntled as you suggest, but she still looks very pretty to us … and we love this quote, which we’d not heard before … it’s a good reminder to “slow down”, too, when you’re trying so hard to do something …
Sweet photo of Audrey. We love the bird photo and the Spark is perfect.
The Florida Furkids with love and whisker kisses to Sawyer from Noelle
I have seen that look many times in my suitcase…
If that isn’t Kizmet’s stuffie in the background, she’s probably wondering if her Dad is going to visit and give a gift to a D.O.G. Hmmm, wonder if he’s coming to visit US… XOX Xena, Chia and Riley
That’s a great spark and I know what you mean by cats and suitcases.
Poor Kizmet hoping to go somewhere exciting with Dad…..well, home is pretty comfy too and there’s “no place like home” ! Only after I left home to start a life of my own did I “find my wings” – I did things I didn’t know I could do and that erased a lot of my self doubt and negativity I had as an adolescent. I still second guess myself from time to time though – I think that might be something that never QUITE goes away. Love the SPARK – it’s GREAT! Can’t wait to see what Stinky and Periwinkle are up to this week!
Lovely spark. And were you the firstborn? Sometimes striving for perfection is a burden to a firstborn child, but then again, perfection is variable for everyone! You are doing beautifully just as you are.
Actually I was not first, but my sister was seven years older and always getting into trouble and blaming me. Also my parents were not into unconditional love. They expected us to live up to their expectations for us!
Poor Kizmet! She’d have been a good companion…we think…
Yes, doing your best with the talents you have is what we all should do. That is a great spark.
Oh, Dad Tom, can’t you have taken Kizmet with you or promised unique toys and treats??
