The meaning of friendship to me and my cats. My cats are considered to me to be my best of friends. I mean who else will sit there and really listen when you blabber on and on. My cats have heard me laugh, cry, and complain. They are always there for me in good times and the not so good times. I look back through my life and it seems like my cats have always helped see me through. Now don't get me wrong. Some of these kitties, my beloved best friends had to cross over to the beautiful rainbow bridge. Each of them still hold a piece of my heart. They are still in my heart of hearts. I can still easily remember each of their names, alot easier than I can remember peoples names of those I've met throughout my life. I have met a lot of nice people through twitter, that share a love of animals as great as mine. Some of the animals there are having a really tough time due to illness. It really tugs at my heart to see their pets, their loved ones not doing well. There is Petie The Cat, a beatiful 15 year old kitty diagnosed with stage two renal failure and Muldercat that is foregoing chemotherapy. I really pray that each of them will be cured, that both of them can enjoy many more years with their owners. It just doesn't seem fair that our pets should have to go through similar illnesses as us humans. We do have what we call the #pawcircle, which is an outgoing of prayer to each of these beloved pets. I know God put animals on this earth for us to care for. I have also always believed that God has a Heaven just for our pets. Alot of people would probably disagree with me on this, but its my opionon. Why would God make animals in the first place then? He made them for companions for us humans, thats why we should love and care for them. So tonight before I rest I say a special prayer for all the animals in need of a miracle that God will reach down from Heaven and comfort them.

Autumn is a time for all plants to rest from the growing season. Unless you live in the really deep south, most plants will die within the first frost. Evergreens, however, will remain green and stay that way throughout the winter. Even perienniels will die back so they can return in the spring. Some animals also hibernate throughout the winter months. I like to think of Autumn as earth's time for a rest. It also gives me a chance to look forward to Springtime, which everything comes back to life and starts all over again. I love watching the leaves as they swirl through the air in various shades of gold, rust, and maroon. Yes, Autumn brings cooler temperatures, the morning air is filled with crispness, the earth smells fresh and alive. This is the time of year my cats love to watch the squirrels as they go about gathering nuts for the winter months. They can sit hours on end watching these little critters, they get so excited and chatter at them. I also put food out for the birds, I know they also need nutritution for the cold winter months. So this is why I love Autumn, enjoy the fall my friends to look forward again to spring.
