I seriously considered building a house on the ranch so the cats could go
outside, but my husband's health did not seem to warrant it. I have three
who look through the windows and "ask out," but I remind them that being a
greasy spot on the street is not a goal! They are 7 years, 5 years, and 4
months old and seem to find enjoyment in each day. I try to provide a
variety of environments -- house and sun porch -- and the kitten (rescued
from starvation after being abandoned on the side of a country road) has
provided reason for frolic and exercise. I wish they could be free and
healthy and live long, happy lives -- but I'll settle for two out of three!
They are not depressed and eat well, and we give each other love and
attention every day!
I think gardeners are in tune with nature and love all of God's creations.

bloom and there is hope for SPRING!!!!
