*Memorial Day*

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow;
I am the softly falling snow.

I am the gentle showers of rain;
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush;
I am in the graceful rush.

Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.

I am the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.

-Mary Frye (1932)

Here is a little story about my cat *Spooky*

Spooky adopted ME 1 1/2 years ago...I was outside talking to my neighbor, it was raining and we were standing in my garage...then we heard a soft cry...we looked and all of a sudden Spooky came running over the wet grass to me and didn't want to leave my site anymore...I wrapped him in a towel to dry him off and after holding him for hours I put him in my cat kennel with food and water...the next day I found out that he belonged to a family in my neighborhood...I wanted to bring Spooky back till I saw in which condition they were living...horrible! I was crying the way home because I left him with this people and couldn't get my mind off Spooky, I was worried for his well being...they also cut his whiskers very short (it was the small daughter)!

I was home, maybe for 1 hour and went back and was begging if I can at least bring him to the Vet. to get his eye infection under control...he was only 4 weeks old!!!

They told me that I can have him they don’t have money to feed him or bring him to the doctor. So all of a sudden I was owner of 3 cats, my lucky day :)…Kevin was still in Iraq so I was very happy that I could care for this little kitten…he was sooo tiny…adorable…Kevin was skeptical at first to get a 3rd cat…but guess what…he and Spooky connected instantly as he came home from Iraq and Kevin plays A LOT with him…

About 3 weeks later my oldest cat *Maja* was dying on old age…I had to put her down…it was very very sad, I had her for almost 18 years… especially with Kevin not being with me…thank God a friend of mine went with me and we buried her on her property which is huge!

Sooo this is the story of Spooky…he got his name because he came in Fall (almost October) and he found ME in the night…believe me his name fits him very well…like I said he is a Stinker!!! But super sweet and funny!!! He makes us laugh every day :)

Look at this little Stinker LOL

I had a bunch of shipping paper to throw away
and my cat *Spooky* build a little nest...I didn't see him at first...
I had to laugh as I saw him only his cute eyes were looking out he is always doing
funny (well not always so funny) things, it makes me laugh and
when I'm talking to him his tail goes like crazy like a dog would do...

Click on the is worth it :)
