Next week I will be moving and I don’t know how often I’ll be online for awhile. I’m moving from Toronto Ontario to Calgary Alberta to be closer to family.

It’s sad to think that Teddy won’t be with me. I had bought him a new carrier for the trip and was excited to start our new adventure together. Thank you again for your kind words about Teddy and the lovely badges.

I will be staying with my brother while I look for a place and hopefully it won’t take long. I’ll check in when I can.

Take care,



Liebster Blogger Award

lliebsterawardI want to thank Pam and Teddy from  onespoiledcat.wordpress.com  for nominating me for the Liebster Award.

Rules to the Liebster Blogger awards:

I was given 6 questions to answer.

1.   Do you think there is life on other planets?   Why or Why Not

I think it’s quite possible that there is life on another planet somewhere out there. Why should we be the only ones.

2.  What is your VERY FAVORITE meal either to cook yourself OR to order in a restaurant?

My favorite meal is tuna pot pie.  It’s a comfort food, especially in the winter.  I love the potatoes, carrots, tuna and onions baked in a flour,milk and butter sauce, topped with bread crumbs.  So good!

3. If you could afford ANY car in the world – what would it be?

3.  When it comes to cars, I’m not interested in an expensive one.  I would buy a small electric car.

4.   Are you superstitious?

I’m definitely not superstitious about black cats, since I had two in my house always crossing my path:)  I’m a bit superstitious about breaking a mirror with the seven years bad luck, but that’s about it.

5.  Do you prefer early mornings or late nights or both?

I’m an early morning person.  My cat Teddy makes sure of that.  By the time 10 p.m. comes around I’m ready for bed.

6.  What is your favorite type of music?

My favorite music….guess it depends what kind of mood I’m in.  I like rock, pop, country and musicals.

I am giving this award to anyone who would like to participate.  It would be good to learn more about my fellow bloggers.  If you are interested, here are my questions.

  1.  What is your favorite thing about the summer.
  2. Have you ever had a dog as a pet?
  3. What is your favorite television show?
  4. What are your hobbies?
  5. Are you a coffee or tea drinker?
  6. What is your favorite dessert?



Mookie passed away last night at home.  He took a sudden turn for the worse with his kidney disease and wasn’t able to walk.  I was going to take him to the vets today, but last night he had a heart attack and was gone within seconds.  I can’t believe how quickly things happened.  The house is so empty without him and Teddy keeps looking around for his brother.  





World Animal Day:Sharing A Few Photos

Today October 4th is World Animal Day and even though this is a cat blog, I wanted to share some other animal photos that I’ve taken.  These are from my trips to the Toronto Zoo in Canada.

penguins2I never get tired watching the penguins.  I make sure to see them each visit.  They are so cute and entertaining to watch.

20161118_113404I was lucky to get this close up photo of the Cheetah.  Usually they are laying down in grass far from view.

giraffeIt’s lunch time for the giraffes.  img_0085The polar bears are usually swimming each time I visit, so this was a nice change to see one walking around.

baboons1Close up look at the baboons.  The young one was so busy cleaning the mother, that it never knew I was there.

img_0924Most times the baboons can be seen climbing the rock wall, playing in the waterfall or just resting on a rock like this one. Once in awhile the bigger baboons will chase the others and fight with them to show that they’re the boss.

kangaroo1This summer the zoo opened Kangaroo Walk, where you get to walk along a path right through their home, without any fences.  They were very quiet and relaxed.

flamingoThe flamingos are so pretty.


We were fortunate to have two Giant Pandas for 5 years from China.  During that time they had twins.  You can see one in the photo with mother.

I enjoyed photographing these animals and I hope you enjoyed seeing them too.  Have a great day.

My Cats, Uncategorized

Visitor In The Garden

The cats weren’t too happy to see a skunk wandering around the yard last night.  Mookie and Teddy only watched out the window for a few moments.

skunk1The skunk was happy digging up the lawn looking for grubs.  I looked out this morning and it was there again. It headed over to my neighbour’s lawn after awhile, then disappeared.  I guess it headed home to sleep for the day.
