Society of Feline Gardeners- Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie

Welcome furriends!

Life in my garden is not the same without my sister Bennette.  We are adjusting slowly, but in some ways we will never be the same.   It seems to be hitting our woofie Grete pretty hard.   She takes good care of us kitties and for her to lose one of us is devastating to her.   

I've not been doing much gardening yet this spring.   I'll probably be snoopervising planting at the end of May.   I've currently got 3 tomato plants that are in our super cool tent plus my herbs but that is about it for now.

The big deal is our deck project.   Dad discovered that our deck totally rotted out.   He couldn't let me set paw on it and fall through!    

So I'm keeping a watchful eye on his garden construction.

It's not as interesting as gardening and getting my paws dirty.   I stay away from noisy tools.

And when I get bored with it all, I snooze on the building materials.

I hope that deck gets done soon, Jonesie, and you can get back to more gardening!

You're a gardener cat, Jonesie, not a carpenter we can see why you're just a little bored. Hope the deck is done soon.

Great to see you, Jonesie. We hope the deck gets done soon and everyone can concentrate on gardening.

Could you give a little paw-pat to Greate Woofie for us? She is such a wonderful girl and we wish we could meet her.

That deck is a lovely place to enjoy and snoopervise, have a great day!


Always good to see you Jonesie! Big purrs continued while you all heal from losing Bennette.

Jonsie, we were offline and we'd like to send our warmest hugs and smoochies to your entire fur family and your peeps, too. Sylvester is especially sad to see his Teeny Tiny Tuxie Lass go on before him; he hopes she'll save him a spot to join her when the time is right.
Bennette was such a wonderful girl, we will miss her. xoxoxoxoxo

We are sorry for your loss of Bennette and Ginger. Of course, we know all too well how this can affect life in the household. It will never be quite normal again.

Though grieving is different for everyone, we join you in yours. The love that Bennette and Ginger inspired will continue to be.

Purrs and Hugs,
