The Garden Cat....

I don't say much about the Outdoor Cats. I don't see them very much. I have 4...their mother died over the winter. They were born while we were gone to Sturgis in '04....they're almost 4 years old....Under Roy's Harley Barn....and that is a story for another day!

The only one I saw today was Shy. She is shy. And sometimes she is called the Seal Cat becuz she walks along and flops down on the ground and raises her head up to look at you like a baby seal. She's always been a fat cat...a beautiful calico!
She "helped" me plant my Surprise Garden....I planted the seeds and she rolled around in the row and buried the seeds....or kicked them out. I would rub her belly. She would like it for about 4 seconds and then bite me. Thank goodness for gardenin' gloves!!!
I'm callin' it my Surprise Garden becuz I'll be surprised if anything comes up!! Roy has part of the garden boxed off that he doesn't use.....I put out sunflower seeds and some other seeds that I've had for years....We'll see what happens!!
The Outdoor Cats are not as wild about catnip as the Indoor Cats but I did notice today that Shy was eatin' some....and she stuck her tongue out at me!!! It grows all year long and when it's fresh and green in the spring the Indoor Cats are trippin' on it daily!! I planted some more today!
Like I said...she's shy!!! She "helped" me plant flowers until the rose bush hit her.....the wind is awful out there...20-25mhp or better!! I was hit by the rosebush and I don't blame her. She went and laid out under the red buds and in the violets....sounds like a great idea!!
I think I'll join her!

Aaahh....This is the life!!

Thanks for your words of encouragement. I'm determined to quit this time! The pill I'm taking is called Bupropion and the one I took last year was called Zyban. They both work really well. Your chances of quitting while taking them is very good.
I love the pictures of the Outdoor Cats....do you feed them, or do they find their own food??
Huggies,

Hey, I have a surprise garden too, but I didn't know that's what it's called. I'll be suprised if anything grows because first we had a monsoon and now we've had two night of really cold weather. I'll be lucky if I see one vegetable this year. Luckily, I don't have my heart set or anything. We're just going to roll with the punches on this one.
