Just tales of me and the furry, the feathered, the slimey and the scaly... whatever! Fun stories. Sad stories. Stories that directly involve me or stories that have touched me.

Something to think about...
The Cat Carol
The cat wanted in to the warm warm house, but no one would let the cat in, It was cold outside on Christmas Eve. She meowed and meowed by the door.
The cat was not let in the warm warm house, and her tiny cries were ignored. It was a blizzard out, the worst of the year. There was no place for her to hide.
Just then a poor little mouse crept by, he had lost his way in the snow. He was on his last legs and was almost froze.
The cat lifted him with her paw. She said, "Poor mouse, do not be afraid, because this is Christmas Eve. On this freezing night, we both need a friend. I won't hurt you. Stay by my side."
She dug a small hole in an icy drift. This is where they would spend the night. She curled herself 'round her helpless friend, protecting him from the cold.
When Santa came by at the end of the night, the reindeer started to cry. They found the cat lying there in the snow, and they could see that she had died.
He lifted her up from the frozen ground, and placed her into the sleigh.
It was then he saw the little mouse wrapped up. She kept him warm with her fur.
"Oh thank you Santa for finding us... Dear cat, wake up, we are saved!"
"I'm sorry mouse, but your friend has died. There's nothing more we can do."
"On Christmas Eve she gave you her life, the greatest gift of them all."
Santa lifted the cat up into the night sky and laid her to rest among the stars. "Dear mouse, don't cry, you are not alone, you will see your friend every year. Each Christmas a cat constellation will shine... to remind us that her love's still here.
Yes, it's a children's story but we can really learn something from it, and our animal friends. Have a wonderful holiday season, whoever you are, wherever you are, however you celebrate it.
