Cats know how to appreciate and cherish the simple things in life: a piece of string, a cork, the ring from the milk jug lid, and cardboard boxes!

Audrey is enjoying the same box Cooper Murphy took his selfie in for yesterday’s post.

Thinking of Kitties Blue, I knew I wanted a Spark about cherishing the simple things. I was surprised how many quotes exist representing this sentiment, and any of them would have been appropriate. But as I am one of those “older” individuals, this one spoke to me. I suspect most, if not all, of you will agree.

The author of today’s Spark, Ronan Patrick John Keating is a 45-year-old, Irish singer. He debuted in 1993 as the co-lead singer of the Irish pop group, Boyzone. His solo career started in 1999, and he has recorded eleven albums.

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


Tomorrow, our two experienced, adventuring tabbies, Periwinkle & Stinky, will be setting off from right here on their final adventure prior to Christmas. Once again, Stinky has not shared any details with me, so I will be as surprised as the rest of you to see how they spend their day. Periwinkle & Stinky always have more fun when you join them, so please drop by and lend them a hand or paw in whatever they get up to!
