Meow! My lettuce greens are starting to do something. I think there might be enough to eat!
I thought today I'd multitask. Here, I'm pointing out where there is a weed my dad needs to pull. At the same time, I'm doing an imitation of a very good friend of mine. Anyone want to guess who it is?
I've been reflecting a lot this past week. Mom rescued my garden friend "Frankie". He's been hanging out for awhile. I actually stood by and watched as mom trapped him. I saw the whole thing! I was proud of my mom for taking care of him. I cared about him but I couldn't get him to the v-e-t myself. A cat can't do it all.
I was thinking about how I came to the garden, much like Frankie and and probably Nigel and Ginger and Bennette and Cecilia and....sigh. We live near an apartment complex. The back corner of our yard borders on the complex. I'll let you in on a little known secret. There is a well worn path from the corner of the yard, right into my garden. You can see the path that many a cat has taken...sometimes just for a day of fun and nip, but for others, the path to getting help when they need it most. Just like me.
I'm thankful for all that I have and I'm thankful that Frankie is doing fine and will have a new forever home in his future.
