PO'Monday

Paddy O'Malley was comfortable inside.

He napped casually, and sat in my lap just as he did when outside.
On my lap
Comfy in that old rocking chair.
The weekends seem to hit me the hardest, because that's when I'd spend hours in the gardens with Paddy following me around, or sitting on the deck reading as he slept, in my lap.

Knowing he felt secure while inside, makes my heart happy.

If only he'd stayed for awhile longer...
 
Farewell, Angel Ruby!
A dear blogging friend ran off over The Rainbow Bridge, and she will be missed here on Earth.

Please consider leaving a note at Ruby The Airdale

He made the best of every single day, outdoors and indoors. If he was developing the conditions that would take him and chose to come inside, it was because he felt safe with you, and safety is more than anything to a cat, and the biggest honor he could give you.

It is sad that just as he was learning to live on the inside, he left. :(

The pic of the PO'M on the rocker made TW sad cos Chizzy used to always sleep on Gramma's rocking chair and he was a tabby too.

Vicky, I still get an ache in my throat when I see that dear boy. I miss him. It doesn't matter that I never met him. My heart did.

Seeing them warm and comfy and safe indeed makes our hearts glad. Paddy loved you for what you did for him, and he surely would have stayed forever if he could have.

The PO'M was a wonderful cat and and a sweetie too.
He was lucky to have chosen your yard. He knew he was safe and loved <3 That matters to a cat.
Purrs, Julie

We miss the POM too. I'm glad you're still posting pictures of him!

Paddy was a special fellow. It takes a big heart and a lot of love to make the transition like he did and there is never enough time with those we love. He is with you always and you will meet again of that I am sure
