The Two Kitties

We have several stray cats that live in the neighborhood. Most of them are wild. You cannot get near them or pet them. They sneak up and get food, or water, or to be nosy, but not much else.

It was cold,minus 60 degrees,and I prayed to God,for a sign to go. I needed a change.A new life, away.And a way to go. A wayContinue reading “Release”

The Diet of Primitive Peoples

The Diet of Primitive Peoples  I saw a meme on Facebook and it got me thinking.

IContinue reading “The Diet of Primitive Peoples”
