Critters - Saturday Critters

"Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though.  That's the problem." - A.A. Milne


The following critters are more than just critters.
They all hold their own uniqueness inside my heart.

"Why fit in when you were born to stand out."
Dr. Seuss

"Oh the things you can find, if you don't stay behind."

Meet my sweet groundskeeper, Monster.

Sadly, he's missing in action.  My heart misses him so much.

My hope is, that a cat lover new to our neighborhood spotted his charm on a frozen Minnesota day and they, being from a concrete city mindset, brought him inside and never let him go.  It happens. 

Keep your rolly polly balls hidden, 
and your eyes on Rusty. 
 He can, be a ball destroyer.

I'm sorry, really I am.

"Dogs never bite me.  Only humans." - Marilyn Monroe

Happiness is, a boy his dog and a wet ball
 on a carpet of green grass, under running feet.

"A dog is the only one thing on earth
 that loves you more than he loves himself."
Josh Billings

"You can judge a man's true character
 by the way he treats his fellow animals." 
Paul McCartney

Some days are like this.

May your life be filled with as many critters you can squeeze in.
You won't regret it.

Dr Seuss is pretty special Karen.. How long has Monster been missing? Wouldn't surprise me if he doesn't rock up on your doorstep at some point and wonder what the fuss is about :) Let's hope so anyway.

Oh, poor sweet Monster. I hope he comes back or that he is found by someone who will love and hug him and keep him cozy. Lovely photos. (I do love a good cat in a hat!)

Dearest Karen; So sorry for my belated comment. And also sorry for missing Monster, that must be heartbreaking! So true to the quote of 'Josh Billings'; hope my husband doesn't think we are too old to have a dog p:-)

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*
