Ginger was so happy to be outside in the sun for a day. She spent the day lying on the back porch or on the gravel pathway as I worked in the yard. Once in a while she would come to me for a back scratch than go back to her nap. She is so funny when she lies flat on her back with all four legs relaxed out to each side.

Hi Marti, You're posting early! Yes, it was a nice day in Kentucky yesterday, though we had a sad task to perform-- burying the ashes of our recently departed 20-year-old cat, Mitts.
We still have one cat, Beechfork, who awakened me at 2:15 this morning by pouncing on a mouse that had found the one spot where there is no baseboard in our bedroom. It is apparently a good portal from the cellar. He chased it around for a while, but DH was able to grab it and put it outside. The mousie didn't show much gratitude, though. It bit the glove my husband was wearing. Here's a picture I took of Beechy sunning himself a few days ago.

I'm so sorry to hear about your kitty. I've had that to do several times in the past and with 2 cats now, I will have to do it in the future. I still carry the ashes of my favorite dog with me. Told my son that I want to be cremated and have mine and my dogs ashes scrattered together in the mountains somewhere. Than her and I can roam to our hearts contend.

I didn't mention it in the previous post, but we also buried the ashes of our second-oldest cat, TJ, who died last summer at 19, the same week I was diagnosed with breast cancer. We also (finally!) buried the ashes of Paco, our shepherd cross who died at 15 in 1996, just a few months before we bought this farm. I know he would have loved it here. The spot we chose is a beautiful viewpoint overlooks ours and our daughter's houses and the field of daffodils and berry bushes. DH and I want our ashes there too when our times come. We never want to leave this place!
