I mean FURchildren that is! Of course my dear daughter helps but she is all grown up and with a wonderful partner, soon-to-be-hubby, so I have my furchildren for company now…kitties of course…Slippers (the eldest and a bit of a crotchety old thing), Pippin (who is the naughty one and I strongly believe to be a ginger lion just pretending to be a tortie cat)…and then there’s Oscar (my adopted furchild, who is actually the neighbour’s cat but who hangs around like a bad smell). I love all three of them, with their different personalities. They all bring a special something to my life, along with many laughs and much joy.
Of course I’m a sucker for these cats (as with any animal actually) and they draw me irrevocably into their magic spell, usually done with their eyes, and in Pippin’s case her meows as she is very vocal. How can I resist? I cannot!
So as I made Full Moon water last night I was out this morning taking photos of it for my previous article, and of course the furchildren had to come and inspect it, just to make sure it was all up to snuff. They do this with everything I do, even Oscar has begun to dip his nose into everything too…not that I mind. If I create a crystal grid, one of them (usually Pippin) will come up to inspect the lay out and will rearrange the crystals with her paws if she thinks they lay out is no good. When I made my Ogham fews she had to inspect and test them by chewing on the ends to see if they were up to the intended job. Living with kitty furchildren is always a bit unpredictable but always a joy.
Anyway, I took some pictures of them this morning and they all insist I share them with you…so here you are, welcome to my clan:
