Petey Pierre

Sometimes one just needs to come clean.  It’s not a particularly proud moment but those of you with cats will understand this.

I brought Eddie Pierre, now nicknamed “Petey”,  into my home 3 years ago when he was a mere kitten of 2 months and weighed only ounces.

It seemed like the neighborly thing to do.

He is now 18.5 pounds and…well….the following two brief videos pretty much sums up where things stand now.

Feel free to add your own “tail” of being held hostage by your cats.  You are not alone;-)

 

P.S.  Petey Song courtesy of my sis Rhonda–sung early in the morning while still in her P.J.’s:-)

P.S.S.  I feel it important to mention that my daughter has also devised a new pastime called “Petey Tipping”—similar to cow tipping, just minus the mooing.

    Dreama, your cat is so much like my cat Velvet! She jumps on my lap while I’m painting and refuses to get down. Then she gets mad and goes to the hallway and lies there sulking and looking depressed. What a diva! I noticed in your video that when you try to pet him he is biting you, and Velvet does that, too. At least these cats let us live in their houses . . . for now;)ReplyCancel

    Oh yes…I definitely know that particular tune – ‘whatever (insert name of cat here) wants, they definitely get.

    Your Petey Pierre is like my Benny (sans adorable mustachio!) – he started out small (we got him when he was about two months old) and now, he is a whopping 20 pounds. Adorable and cuddly, but he definitely will let you know what he wants, when he wants it (usually right that very second).

    And then there’s Phillo – who is also affectionate, cuddly, funny, sweet and adorable…but oh…my…heavens…the entire universe MUST revolve around him and his every whim and fancy.

    But the alternative to that…? A world without our wonderful, sometimes crazy, sometimes neurotic, but always wonderful cats is a world that I wouldn’t want to imagine living in.

    Petey, like his adopted brother Eddie Bill, is one gorgeous boy.

    And one more thing – your sis Rhonda has a wonderful voice. :)ReplyCancel

    So cute. My daughter’s cat Tucker is living with us right now. Such a big personality for such a little body. I was forced to make him my assistant studio manager. Cooper the Sheltie is okay with that as long as he gets top billing.ReplyCancel

    Sorry Petey, but 3 of my 5 cats are older & they have already usurped ‘center of the universe’ status. Scamp, Sport & Shop Rag are such centers of the universe that they have two moons orbiting them – Bimmer & Pookie.ReplyCancel

We understand that in lift off there exists resistance.

We must persevere through this stage for it is only for a moment when measured by eternity’s standards.  There exists that outer space where there is no resistance, no gravitational pull—where momentum is sustained.

It will not always be hard.

Whatever you’re doing right now, you need to know this:-)

    Such a beautiful, dreamy setting to have a meal with loved ones. You capatured that ‘dream time’ feeling perfectly.

    And after the initial reistance (and all that energy spent) in lifting off, we can feel free…floating…easy…light…no resistence…

    Thank you Dreama, as you have done so many wonderful times before this time, for reminding me to know and then remember this.ReplyCancel

I BELIEVE that the ability to write something magnificent, to paint something that comes alive, or to say something that changes lives is possible for any of us.

We must kick to the curb the idea that only a chosen few have this ability.

The only difference between those who do and those who don’t?

BELIEF

that anything is possible  :-)

 

As my buddy Emerson says,“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.”

    Even more than ‘I think I can…I think I can…I know I can…I know I can,’ for me, it’s much more important to ‘believe I can’ and believe in myself.

    As Flynn commented above, you are once again right on the mark, Dreama. You, and your good friend Emerson (who is fast becoming a good friend of mine as well, the more I get to know him).

    It’s not so much seeing is believing…it’s more a case of believing is seeing. Really, truly seeing.

    Thanks for this, Dreama – I do believe.ReplyCancel

    i love this! What we declare over ourselves is what we will become. Whether it’s in line with God’s thoughts or not. God created us, so He thinks we’re beautiful and fabulous and can do (or write, or paint) mostly anything. Why wouldn’t we think that, too?ReplyCancel
