My Snow Loving Cat

Can't you see the big snow flakes coming down                                                 The wind is blowing the snow on frozen ground                                                   Sitting at the door are you wanting to go out                                                             How loud the word no do you want me to shout 

It's piling up real fast making big snow banks                                                     Staying in this warm house you should give thanks                                                One paw out that door and you would quickly disappear                                                      Wait until the Mr. plows a path to make the way clear  

Please stop fussing while I wrap you in this warm sweater                                   And you may not like it but this hat makes it even better                                Your the one snow cat that wants to go out in this blizzard                                   It sure would make me happy if you would just reconsider

Little Girl Is Doing Good!

LG is still getting eye drops twice a day and hasn’t been able to go outside yet. It will be a few more days before that can happen. It doesn’t look it but we do gently clean around her eye with a soft wet cotton pad. Notice she has a blue eye and a yellowish color eye.

When she came to live with me she was about four months old. Her nose was pink with a little black dot on it. In time she acquired more and more little black dots or they might be called freckles. So now she has a little black nose that started out pink.

My Little Girl

My Little Girl has an infection in one of her eyes. It’s red all around the eye and watery and she struggles to keep it open which tells me it might be quite sore, my heart hurts to see her suffering. She has been to the vet, got a shot and is given eye drops twice a day. Two days have passed and the eye looks much better. I wrote her a poem of actual events.

My Little Girl

My Little Girl is a very old and sweet cat                                                                                                                         Unlike her sister Dixie who is a total brat                                                                                                                                When LG walks by, Dixie gives her a swipe                                                                                                                                        It happens daily yet LG never does gripe

Dixie walks around with a sway in her step                                                                                                                      Little Girl waddles and has lost all her pep                                                                                                                    This morning she woke up with a red eye                                                                                                          It looked so awfully bad that I begin to cry

It's under control now with meds from our vet                                                                                                          Dixie's bad behavior she hopes we might forget                                                                                                               She walked up to Little Girl and sniffed her face                                                                                                         Then lowering her head close as if to embrace

The Elegance of Cats

Whether you love cats or hate them there is no denying                     Watching a cat or kittens behavior is so very gratifying                   Graceful and stylish in appearance and in there every manner        With there sharp eyes asking, could you find anything grander 

Even when cats get old they can still have that haughty composure                                                             And the stray that has no shelter and lives a life of exposure
Can carry it off having you think there is nothing quite so divine
Will we ever learn that all cats know how to let their light shine

The Cat On The Road

It seems I have been dumped off in the middle of the night                                          Alone on this road I'm wondering what will be my plight                                             Could it have been that I scratch up the stair railing                                                                         I noticed lately the misters affection for me was failing

Did I get too much hair on the misters black suit                                                        Guess I was wrong in believing he thought I was cute                                                     Maybe it was all the knitting I did on her bedspread                                                          I'll stop knitting and come winter my fur won't shed

In the darkest of nights I see a car slowing down                                                                   Please let it be a nice human from the nearby town                                                        Being scooped up gently into somebody's arms                                                                    I hear them say softly, I mean to do you no harm

I'm taking you home to my family on our very big farm

The Kitten In The Fall Leaves

There  is nothing more hilarious for any of us to see
Is to watch a kitten jump into a raked up pile of leaves
Even better,  trying to catch one slowly drifting down
Floating on a breeze that has the kitten twirling round

When they crawl in through the bottom of this neat pile
You stand there in expectation wearing a slight smile
Suddenly they pop up with big eyes looking right at you
Leaves flying everywhere, it's not likely you had no clue

Next comes the most entertaining activity of the year
You laugh so hard your eyes get filled up with tears
Oh for a camera so I could have taped this episode
Directly in front of you that pile of leaves explodes

September 2012

It was in September of 2012 that I created this blog, ” Fine Cats & Kittens”.    I really don’t know why I named it Fine Cats & Kittens other than I wanted    it to stand out from other cat blogs. Many of you have been following me for several years now and know my history. For any that don’t, I have rheumatoid arthritis and use a power chair to get  around. I hardly ever leave my home except for a doctors visit once a year if that often. That is why this website is so important to me by filling up my days and having the time pass quickly. I never get bored because I enjoy posting every day and getting your likes and your comments. I am using this ten year anniversary to thank you and I look forward to you coming back often. I would also like to thank WordPress.com for giving us this wonderful platform to express ourselves and keep in touch with our family and friends around the world. My best regards, your fellow blogger, Eileen Clark

Feeding The Birds or Feeding The Cats

While I'm filling my big bird feeder up                                                                     Knowing their time to live I could disrupt                                                                       Having it low enough to reach so I can fill                                                                 High enough so cats don't have an easy kill

My cats have bowls of food around in the house                                                              They also have places to find and catch a mouse                                                        Winter birds have trouble finding bugs and worms                                                                       Life is not so easy, it doesn't go by their terms

My cats could be so warm sleeping near the heater                                                        Instead there outside lurking under the bird feeder                                                              So am I feeding the birds or feeding my cats I wonder                                                                  No matter which it is I ask, am I making a blunder

Cats And Fall Allergies

For many of us including our pets, this change of season is the start of fall allergies. Cats have seasonal allergies (atopy or allergic dermatitis) to mold and pollen just like we do.
