I get up at 4:30 am every day. Why? Because I am teaching amazing Chinese children online and there is a 13 hour difference. So when it is 6:00 am here, it is 6 pm there. I get up, make my bed, clean the litter box and put food down for my two indoor cats, and my visiting cat. Then, I go to the store for my morning coffee. I know that that is an expense, and it is probably a left over habit from NYC days, but, it is one of my few pleasures and it is an excuse to get out of the house.
I take my coffee and call the cats: PussPuss, Tiger, Pompom and Kitty. They know what time it is! They are creatures of habit. They all show up. I pet them all, greet them good morning and give each a snip of catnip. OMG! They love it! They lick it up, roll around in it and lie upside down in catnip heaven.
I love doing this. While I drink my coffee, watch these cats and look up at the morning sky, I am at peace. The world seems to be in order.
Writing and art are my passions!
