Well my lovelies…….it is a cold and misty winter morning here at the crazy cattery! Real coffeebookblanket weather 🙂
I am very happy to say that today I do not have to work in the garden……so my crochet afghan will get all my attention!
The ‘holiday’ break has been going well…..much pruning and raking of leaves has been done and I have paved all the kitty enclosures! So now each house has a lovely paved patio for lazing and tanning as well as a garden area for general digging and rolling 🙂
I am so happy with the way it has turned out…..all the broken nails and bruised fingers have been worth it!
Now I can hear my coffee calling….a quick reminder before I go…..December bookings! Please humans….your beloved furry children also want to enjoy the holiday season. Call or email me as soon as you can….before all the houses are gone!
Now take care, be warm, be safe and cuddle those kitties!
I leave you with this beautiful thought……..
“Instead of looking at the lives of others, see the goodness in front of you. Inside of you. Appreciate each moment, one at a time, and be happy where you are. When you find yourself comparing your life to the lives of others, turn to the moment in front of you and find ways to appreciate it.”
A definite chill in the breeze these days…..and with all the leaves floating around the breeze has a rustly voice……sometimes it really seems to chuckle lol!! (Like when I’ve just raked up a heap of leaves and suddenly they are evenly distributed all over the garden!)
I can’t believe the year is nearly halfway done…..and Damascus has been so busy over the last year…..such a blessing 🙂
At last things have quieted a little – my last guest is a beautiful boy who will be here until the end of May (his humans are visiting family in Portugal).
Then I have decided that it is time for a bit of R&R……Rest and Renovation 🙂
Damascus Cats will be closed for the months of June and July…..will be fixing, enlarging, spraying for bugs, weeding…….and somewhere in there…..resting!lol!
So! Until August 1st – I wish you all well. Take wonderful care and be safe always……..and keep warm!
Many kisses and hugs
So! The beautiful nameless tree (nameless only because I am very rusty when it comes to Tree Knowledge things!)…by my bedroom window is spreading a golden carpet all over the lawn. My Pride of India trees are adding the last of their blooms so it looks like confetti all over the garden……reminds me all over again why I love this season so much.
Amidst all the falling leaves and blossoms……I have been run off my feet…..feeling that I need to book into one of the little houses and take a break! 🙂
It’s most heartening to see people already booking for December…I get most annoyed with those who go to great trouble with their own arrangements and leave the poor pets to the last moment!
Other than that, not much news. The days are getting shorter and darkness doesn’t sneak up in the late afternoons………it pounces! One minute the sun is still warm on the skin and the next you find yourself walking into a tree because you can’t see a thing! I love it 🙂 and of course all the cats are in snuggle mode lol! The minute you sit down someone will leap on you and turn you into a bed!
Well kitty people and dearest fuzzy children……where ever you are, be safe, be blessed and have a wonderful week……
Never in my life have I been happier to see the end of Summer on my doorstep!
This year has been so unbelievably hot and dry…..now at last, in the wee hours one can feel a crisp coolness in the air. What a relief! Naturally the cats all enjoy the new coolness- they come prancing in with damp dewy feet!
Damascus has been constantly busy after a very brief break following the December craziness…..and of course now things are winding up again for the Easter holidays. We are nearly full so please contact me asap if you need a booking for the fuzzy ones!
Now I’m off to make breakfast for my own hooligans and the guests! Take care sweet peoples…….be safe and never miss an opportunity to pander to your pets! 🙂
