THE PICTURE IS OF TIGGER MY CAT WHO PASSED AWAY ON 9-11-2015

Hello everyone, I would like to share a story about my  rescue cats Tigger and Daisy Mae. You see right before we rescued Tigger, we had another rescue kitten that died after a week because the previous owners flea dipped her to early. We eventually rescued another cat and her name was Tigger. Tigger was a rescue cat that we got from a friend of mine at work. I know you’re probably thinking how is your cat a rescue cat if you got her from a friend at work. The following are some reasons that make Tigger a rescue cat and they are: 1. My friend had so many cats that not all the cats got treated equally, 2. Tigger was the runt of the litter so she didn’t get treated as good as the other cats and 3. If you would’ve heard some of the things the previous owner did, you would have rescued her too. In fact, some of the things the previous owner did could have been considered abuse in some instances. When my family brought Tigger home, she was scared to death of all of us and even ran and hid from us. When I came home from work, I found her in my bedroom closet. She eventually warmed up to Mom and I and it took a little bit longer for Dad. However, in Tigger’s old age she couldn’t get around as good as she used to and that’s about the time Daisy Mae came into the picture. The following is the story of  how we found or rescued Daisy Mae.                                                                                                                           One night when I came home from work, I could hear something. As it turned out, it was a cute and adorable little kitty cat with good lungs.We estimated that the little kitty cat we found or rescued was about 4 weeks old. Of course my family and I fed her and put her in a nice warm bed in the garage and eventually brought her into the house. We did get to see the mother cat who kept coming around after she dropped her kitten off at our place. We always thought the mother cat wanted to make sure her kitten was going to be taken care and when she realized her kitten was going to be taken care of, the mother cat stopped coming around.                                                                                                                                                  A few days later  we had my nephew’s 4th birthday party and we let my nieces and nephew name the kitten. The nieces and nephew decided to name the kitten Daisy Mae. My sister and brother-in-law gave us a cage for the kitten but it ended up, Daisy Mae was so small she was able to get through the holes in the cage.                                                       Since we had Tigger at the same time we had Daisy Mae, we had to figure out a way to introduce the cats to each other. We put up a screen door and that worked well for a while but eventually the screen door came down. When the cats were finally introduced to each other, everything for the most part went well. Of course, Tigger was the one that did all the hissing when the screen door came down.                                                                                             Since Daisy Mae was the younger kitty cat, it helped Tigger become more playful and more mellow. In fact, Tigger warmed up to my Dad right before she passed away on September 11, 2015. We miss Tigger everyday.                                                                                                               As for Daisy Mae, we have had her for 10 years and this year will be 11 years. Daisy Mae  has been a joy and a blessing. We love her a lot.                                                                                             My family and I feel that God brought us Tigger and when she passed away, God brought us Daisy Mae. My family and I felt that God knew we would eventually need some joy and that we would be sad when Tigger died. The joy Daisy Mae has brought our family is beyond words. Daisy Mae has been a blessing that is for sure.

Just One of Millions of American Immigrant Stories

Interesting article.

Longreads

This is me, just as I was about to immigrate to the United States. Before 1965, it was legal to ban immigrants based on nationality, and Asians in particular were targeted. It was actually referred to as an Asiatic Barred Zone. Then, Congress passed the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, banning discrimination on the basis of national origin. For all who believe everyone should be treated equally, please contact your representatives.

The Joy of Mud

Liked the poem and pictures.

Animals are Wonderful

sid-004The white snow has gone,

leaving behind a muddy ground.

There I go,

running round and round,

while my furry paws,

pick up all the mud.

Inside I come,

just like mama said,

then she shakes her head

she tries to catch me,

yes, she does,

but I am faster and I lick my own paws,

before I lay down,

to sleep once more,

leaving mama with a frown.

Seasonal Changes No. 4

I really liked the pictures. Looking forward to more.

Trees, this only really works with deciduous trees. Firstly, the tree by Victoria House.

The horsechestnut tree by the field.

The tree in a nearby street. I’m cheating here as the tree does not change, just the sky.

Foggy Street Scenes

Interesting photos.

Looming out of the fog is this abandoned old house. Its plaque informs us that it is dated from 1884 and named Clifford Place.Photo of empty building in fog

Incidentally, 1884 was the date of the Post Office Protection Act, part of which made it an offence to set fire to post boxes. Photo of post box in fog

WHY I STARTED THIS SITE

Featured Image -- 9637

I started this blog/post site so I could blog posts I read on other sites. However, I’m finding that I’m having fun writing my own posts and sharing my pictures with you I’ll probably be doing a lot less reblogging and sharing of somebody else’s posts unless it’s really a good post. I also just got my first  digital camera on Christmas Eve and just love it. I look for me to be taking a lot of pictures. In fact previously I wrote a short story about my cat.  I hope to share it along with a few pictures of my cat. I have taken pictures of some of my family and a picture of a gingerbread house my nieces and nephew made. This sounds like fun. I probably won’t blog everyday just every-now-and then. I have written 2 blogs with pictures .  Please enjoy these blogs. Above is my cat Daisy Mae. Below are pictures my cat Daisy Mae.

Gingerbread House That Was Made By The Nieces And Nephew On Christmas Day.

 

It’s been almost 2 years now since I joined WordPress(January 2017). It’s been a wild, rollercoaster ride with less up and downs. Even though my main reasons for joining was to have fun and my curiosity, I never in my wildest dreams thought I would meet such nice people online that had quality blogs to read and follow. My love for animals, country living, photos, my friends and family, Poetry, books and so much more have helped me write posts for both of my blogs. I’m really doing what I set out to do and that’s Having Lots Of Fun. MY GOAL HAS BEEN MET. YEAH!!

All of my pets except for one have been rescued/adopted. Please when you’re looking for a pet start at your local animal shelter. You might be surprised what you find. Also, remember that animals need love just like you do. ALWAYS RESCUE/ADOPT ANIMALS WHEN YOU CAN.
