I selected today’s Spark, as I think it is a good reminder for all of us and as a lead in to some news from my state, Virginia, which I want to share.

The General Assembly recently passed a bill introduced by State Senator Bill Stanley. This bill gives cats and dogs used in testing situations the opportunity to be released to an adoption agency and find their very own loving homes. Stanley said, “We should reward those dogs and cats with a forever home and not discard them when they are considered no longer useful.” These dogs and cats are normally euthanized.

I don’t agree with animal testing, but I am delighted these animals will be given a second chance.

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.”

Awww Mondays

On February 12, I shared the “Cat Train” with you. That train consisted of only the engine and caboose (Calista Jo and Sawyer) of this train. Today’s train has a sleeping car cat (Kizmet).



The three cat train is participating in the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. To join them, click on the badge below.


The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky


Your favorite, fun-loving tabbies will be sharing another of their adventures tomorrow. Stinky and Periwinkle will be celebrating the birthday of Dr. Seuss with a very special adventure. His birthday is celebrated as Read Across America Day, which is a big deal in the blogosphere. Stinky and Periwinkle also will join Timmy, Ranger and Emmy (who are hosting this year’s event).
