Meezer Memory Monday


We are reposting on of Mom's favorite pictures of Tiki and me. We are a little bit sad this weekend because Tiki has been gone from us for a month.



In other news, Mom's friend has not had to evacuate and it looks hopeful that she won't. The fire is spreading north, and she lives south of it/them. She is about 3 miles from what they are now calling the Triange Fire - but which started out as the Yorba Linda/Corona Fire. Distance wise, Mom says it is pretty close - about 10 miles or so (as the crow flies) but by car, it is about 20-25 miles. We are hopeful that the fire will continue to spread to the less populated areas and that the fire fighters will be able to get some containment of it established soon.

As for all of us eating out of the same dish, we seem to be the exception. Mom started that when she brought Tiki and me home. We were so little and so close that she gave us one bowl of food and we would stick both of our heads in and eat. As Dharma, Cody and now Miss Jade have joined the family, they also got to share. Mom did feed Miss Jade out of her own bowl for a few months, but she just kept sticking her nose in our food, so Mom gave up and let her eat with us too.

Tavi

That is a wonderful picture of you and Tiki. Time moves on but sometimes our hearts don't move as fast. We believe it is good to always remember those who have gone on ahead. As time moves on your Momma will remember more of the good and wonderful times and less of the sad ones and that would fill Tiki's heart with joy to know your Momma is not sad.

We hope that those fires will soon be over, we would wish for rain but we know that might bring more problems, so we will pray for those firefighters out there helping to put out those flames...

That's a wonderful picture Tavi, but we can barely believe that it's been a month. It seems that the heart moves at a different pace sometimes. We're sending purrs to you all and to your friends - hoping that they can stay un-evacuated.

Stay safe all of you.

A month is really not a long time. I remember my maid was still crying every day a month after Anastasia left.
We are glad to hear that the fires are ont affecting you or your Mom's friend! We are very worried about all the cats and dogs and people in Souther California right now and hope those fires will soon be extinguished!

Purrs of gratitude
