For some reason, yesterday I was thinking about compromise versus cooperation when it comes to relationships. To me, cooperation makes a lot more sense. Later in the day, I found Astrid, Cooper Murphy and Audrey cooperating when it came to playing Mouse for Cats. Cats don’t compromise!


Three cats, a tortie, ginger tabby and torbie (tortoise shell tabby) lying on a bed and coopering while playing the game, Mouse for Cats. Photo also has the quote: "We must work together to unlearn the biases that make our foundation weak, and rebuild a foundation of collective care, love, and cooperation," by Jamaal Bowman


Though these three are cooperating, Audrey was by far the champion of the game. She revealed mice I had never seen before with more than 600 “hits!”

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 right here. I have no idea what Stinky has planned, but I know he and Periwinkle will want you to join them. Adventures are always more fun when you come along, so they’ll be waiting for you.
