THE LITTLE FURRY INNOCENT VICTIM OF THE WRATH OF FELINAPAUSE!
BEWARE THE MIDDLE AGED FELINE !!
The Feline Midlife crisis- FELINAPAUSE!I will re-post my cat horror, which has doubled in the past few weeks as Buddha, our once gentle, shy, slightly phobic, kitty, has followed in her Queens, (Miss Kitty) foot steps and is delivering 2-4 baby mice a day into our pet door. I am more than grateful neither one has found a baby bunny.
Sheis now 14 years old, and spent the first half of her life an inside cat, eating, snuggling, bathing, sleeping and so on.She rarely even took interest in the big fat horse flies that come along this time of year, dive bombing our heads, landing on food, and getting stuck on the inside of our window screens, buzzing like crazy! She had little interest in them, and would only occasinaly bat one gently with her fluffy white paw. She was a most content inside domesticated feline Queen, who never even ventured beyond our front door.Well.. LO and BEHOLD ....Miss Kitty went through a MID LIFE crisis- a FELINEAPAUSE of some kind and DISCOVERED her INNER HUNTRESS!!!!!No bird on are 2 acres was safe. Every god forsaken , desert chipmonk, pack rat,itsy bitsy baby mice- why even Lizards! became her victims.My PEACEFUL, DESERT, CREATURE SANCTUARY, became a KILLING GROUND, for the FELINE MURDERESS!It renewed her life, and traumatized mine!ALL my birdfeeders had to come down. No more feeding the amazing parade of Quail Families. Multiple corpses of dead, fuzzy everythings, are left by our front and back doors.I thought for sure she would slow down by 10-12 yrs of age, but NOOO!I would love to never again watch a bug eyed little desert mouse hanging on my porch wall , injured, trying to escape her wrath.I would be happy to offer her services free of charge to you, so I could return all my birdfeederd to their designated places and enjoy the almost year round chorus of desert bird song!AHHHHHH!!! this hole animal hunt and kill other animal is more then I can bear.! She is all yours!!!!!Well..... I have to ask the hubby- as he thinks both she and her great works are wonderful

SUMMER IS HERE AGAIN
After 8 days of extraordinarily cool temperatures the heat has returned. Perhaps it was the earthquake that reawakened our sleepy desert to the fact that SCHOOLS OUT and SUMMER has officially begun!
I left the Yoga studio at noon to the dreadfully familiar Body bake that occurs when a car has been sitting in the sun for over an hour here. In order to prevent brain bake, I must reach in and turn on my car, turn on air conditioner, open all windows, and let the old girl Cool down before placing my post menopausa,l temperature control challenged self into the drivers seat.
Unfortunately for me my thermal cup ice water was now a warm cup of yuck, so I had to stop at Starbucks for a large ice water, a benti soy white chocolate mocha( I was hungry), and a blueberry scone. Well, I couldn't waist the stop on just a large water.
So..I realize I have been spending more time reading and exploring other peoples blogs which i Love doing; however it does little to add to my own spot here in the blogosphere. Being the pragmatic innovator that I am , I've decided to include any comments I have written that may be of interest to the viewing audience. It will also allow you to visit other folks blog's, if you feel so inclined
For today, in my life Love Is...my husband waking me up at 7 am with a fresh cup of Starbucks expresso roast coffee , kissing my sleepy head, and me saying "thank you babe" while being fully aware of the true joy of the moment and very grateful for his caring actionLove is- hauling my painful rotator cuff connected to the rest of my 43 yr old body to Yoga this morning. This affirms Love of self, Love of a practice called Yoga, which helps me connect to the very source of Love, God , higher power, Great Spirit, Universal Consciousness, the originator or that which creates and connects all things. The last time I read any physics, it was PROVEN under some kind of superman, super power microscope, that we all look the same when broken down to the smallest particles-Light!Who ever said "so let your light so shine before men", may have meant this literally, seeing how's electricity wasn't created yet =) or was it??But I digress..Love is, staying calm and focused
life in the desert
