Awww Mondays

Normally I begin our Monday posts with Sparks, but today I am switching things up, as today is special. It is Sawyer’s second Gotcha Day.

We do have photos of him from his first day with us, but they are a bit blurry, so I am sharing a photo from three days after his arrival.



Sawyer always looked like a grumpy old man in his early days with us, and it was evident that he really didn’t like us much. He has mellowed during the last two years. He will allow us to pet him sometimes, and he often chooses to snuggle up and sleep next to Dad Tom or me. Best of all, he allows me to kiss him on the head.

Our baker, Mau, made a cake for the whippersnapper and we have hot chocolate. Please join us as we celebrate our little pal.




We are so grateful we were able to rescue Sawyer and give him a good life in spite of his seizure disorder.

Sawyer is joining the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. To participate, click on the badge below.


With Thanksgiving later this week, I selected a Spark expressing thankfulness. I am using one of Dad Tom’s photos as the background image.



I have used a quote from Ralph Marston for a Spark back in September, 2018. Marston was a football player who attended Boston University. He spent a season as a professional in the National Football League in 1929 with the Boston Bulldogs as a quarterback.

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 Stinky’s week to post, and I know both he and Periwinkle will be looking forward to seeing you here tomorrow.

Happy Gotcha Day, Sawyer. I look back on my first birthday, my only birthday, and cherish the pan I had….TO BE ONE and a Cat Scut. I am a Cat Scout now like your big brothers Mau and CooperMurphy.

My next wish is to be two and still have fun.

Your spark is so true. When we give for the sake of giving it becomes fun and we want to give more. Not giving advice? Giving from the heart instead.


PS….whisker kisses to my ginger snap.

Well my little pal, you truly were one very lucky boy when you became a Kitty Blue – especially with your seizure disorder as you’ve had a safe place to live with the very best care EVER. What more can we ask for? Oh yes – the LOVE too! Here’s to tons more Gotcha celebrations for you little brother……………We also love your Mom’s Spark for today – it “speaks to us”!

Hugs, Teddy (and Mom)
