Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!
Quote Of The Week
Even if you have just destroyed a Ming Vase, purr.
Usually all will be forgiven.
This week, while Mom and Dad were out of the house,
The unthinkable happened –
I was tearing through the house in my indomitable way
And – before I knew it –
Another household possession lay in my wake!
This time it was a gorgeous Asian plate
That was part of a set that Mom had given Dad long ago.
I did not know what to do.
I felt really terrible about what happened.
I did not mean to break the plate.
I thought, perhaps, that if I made myself scarce that evening
Perhaps they wouldn’t notice but you know how Moms are.
The moment she sat down to watch TV –
Even though the room was dark –
The first thing she did was notice the empty space.
She asked Dad, “Did you move the plate?”
Of course, he said no, which launched a household investigation.
Eventually, they found the missing plate and all its shards behind the speaker.
I confess – it was not a pretty sight.
Mom and Dad were really cool about the whole thing though.
They did not get mad (although I did hear a few loud sighs!)
So, I thought that if I began to perch in the place
Where the plate one stood,
And put on my scowliest face to let them know how badly I felt,
Perhaps I could make them eventually forget about the broken vase…
Of course, hanging out in this new hot spot has its perks!
It makes such a good spot to spy on Tsunami,
And it’s the best TV-viewing spot in the house!
I would not call myself an opportunist…
But is this why my parents say I am indomitable?

The #ShelterPetLove Project
Did you know that each year, approximately 3-4 million pets are adopted from shelter and rescue groups, but 2.4 million healthy and treatable pets still need our help finding a home?
I recently heard about the Shelter Pet Project – a group that showcases the unique bonds between shelter pets and their adoptive owners, and reminds people that there are thousands of amazing shelter pets ready to meet them.
One of their goals is to break down the misconceptions that often surround shelter pets and spreading the word that pets in shelters are wonderful and loveable.
June is Adopt A Cat Month. I invite you to watch this week’s special video and – if you are one of my readers who are considering adding a pet to your home – won’t you consider visiting your local shelter and adopting a pet?
