Well hello old friends! As you may have noticed I’ve been MIA for the past 9 months. This was due in part to the fact that I’ve been so busy (I finished my thesis and graduated with my Master’s Degree) and also due to my feelings about my blog. I’m new to this blog business and had been feeling like my blog was a little pathetic compared to everyone else’s. Today I read a wonderful and inspiring post on my sister’s brilliant blog “Freutcake“, which spoke to me. She wrote about how blogging isn’t a competition, but an opportunity to share what you love with the world. Why hadn’t I accepted that earlier?
Now I’m back to blogging and I’m doing it for me. There are so many fabulous bloggers out there with so many great things to say, and I am happy to read their posts and leave comments… but I’m just as happy to write my own posts that may never receive comments. I do it because its fun.
I feel liberated!
So much has happened in these past 9 months. I’m so sad to say that only a couple short months after my post about my neighbor’s cat Marley, poor Marley passed away. He had been very sick for over a month and his mom decided it was just too cruel to keep him alive while he was suffering. He is missed.
Some happy news though…in September, a sweet little tuxedo kitten appeared in my yard. I caught him and tried to find his home without any luck. I decided to foster him while trying to find a family to take him but in the mean time, he and Luna were becoming attached. As the weeks passed “Bandit” got bigger and bigger and I continued to take care of him; getting him his vaccinations, taking him to get neutered, and wouldn’t you know it I got attached to him too! Well I’m sure you guessed it, Bandit is now a member of the family. He is now nine and a half months old and looks like a black and white panther! Luna loves playing big sis and it’s obvious he is thrilled to have all the love, affection and FOOD he could ever want! We all got lucky this time.
I’m glad to be back. I can’t promise a post every week but I’ll do my best to keep them coming when I can, and stay tuned for updates on Luna and Bandit!
