Jon Sopel of the BBC to tweeted: “BREAKING: anti-Trump demonstrators fail to stop @realDonaldTrump motorcade, but @Number10cat does.”

Larry was visible on the window ledge outside Number 10 as Theresa May and her husband Philip May posed with U.S. President Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump.



Larry sheltered from the rain under Trump’s armoured Cadillac (aka The Beast) and could not be coaxed out.

The best is yet to be, the last of life, for which the first was made. Our times are in his hand who saith, ‘A whole I planned, youth shows but half; Trust God: See all, nor be afraid!”  ― Robert Browning

This Lil’ Girl’s Face Has Gotten More White Every Year But Her Smile Hasn’t Changed

My latest chapter in life has been to care for those that are old, sick and discarded.   I truly cannot fathom how deep their hearts are as they always fill their last home with joy and love.

Animal Services will call…a human has passed and left their old friend behind.  Or the veterinarian calls and says I have a sweet elderly one that needs a home (most have their humans retired to homes where they cannot be kept), and then there are those that are dying (whose family cannot bear that passage) so they surrender them.  They can grow old here.  Robert Browning knew that there was something very special about aging.

And yes, it hurts terribly when I say goodbye to them.  They take a piece of my heart with them, but luckily I have a piece of theirs in exchange.

My friend Slipknot the goat, passed away last year.  I couldn’t bear to write about him until I found something that signified joy and happiness.    Found it…


What a beautiful surprise in New Zealand a few days ago.   When in need, they nurture.


“My Dad is recovering from an operation,” Falloon wrote. “Mum went out and left a doorslightly ajar.”

Then there’s a slight pause for effect, while the photo sinks in. It shows a contented-looking feline snuggled against a sleeping gentleman.

In fact, these two look just like peas in a pod. They even appear to be holding hands, so to speak.

So Falloon’s wry concluding line immediately began prompting chuckles all across social media: “My parents do not have a cat.”

Imagine being a 72 year old pensioner.  Now, you have a tool shed where your “stuff” is always left out but in the morning everything is nice and tidy.  Do you think you are losing your mind?   This is what cameras are good for.


I have rescued both breeds.  The Border Collie is an amazing creature when it comes to herding.  The Chihuahua is superior to the Ring doorbell when it comes to an alert and she will work even if the internet is down.  🙂
