Society of Feline Gardeners- Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie


::Meowwww::
I want to take some time this week to give a shout out to my biggest helpers in the garden.
Figaro may not help too much with the plants (except for eating the nip)...oh yeah and rolling on stuff...but he is VERY talented and helpful in hunting evil moles.  As you can see below, the moles have been making a mess of our lawn.  Figaro sits patiently by the hills and waits for his time to pounce!!!  We have not seen any evidence of him actually catching anything yet, but he gets an A+ for trying!
Grete woofie is my best pal in the whole world.  She follows me around making sure I have everything I need. 
It's a tough job watching over my garden, but I wouldn't trade it for anything!  I would make a terrible library cat...too indoorsy for my taste.  Give me the dirt and plants!
I like how my garden makes me realize that I'm part of something much bigger than myself.  I am a small cat in one garden...but through my garden pals all over the world we can see that we are all connected.

Sending purrs to our dear furriend and Society of Feline Gardeners member MoMo as she crosses the Rainbow Bridge today.  She will be in our hearts and gardens forever.

We were quite sad to hear about Momo. I think your garden looks great. This year we have only a little bit and not enough to photograph, but I do have hope!

Yer garden looks great! And you make a good point about having helpers. It takes the whole fambly to make a good garden an evryone does their part.

So sad to hear about Momo. The garden is lovely and looks so healthy. You all are great helpers!

It does take a lot of help to have a successful garden. I guess that's why ours is so bad - all I have is my inept human.

We too were very sad to hear about Momo.

Terri said...

Those look like really big mole mounds! Maybe Figaro wouldn't want to meet up with one of them!

We visited Momo's site. So much sadness...

MoMo said...

Thank you for your kind thoughts. MoMo has crossed the Bridge peacefully and is now buried under her favourite tree in the back garden.

Mole-hunting is a very important task, good thing Figaro is around then. Though *catching* them would be a bit more helpful. Just sayin'. :-)

We think your garden looks terrific! We *are* all connected, Jonesie, All Beings. Wise words.

Cat said...

Wow, I can't believe those mole hills!!! We were so sorry to hear about Momo :-(

CCL Wendy said...

Maybe you don't see the moles because Figaro has been having secret snacks when you're not looking.

You are such a down-to-earth ladycat, Jonesie! I really admire your devotion to your garden, and your unending support to all of your proteges.
