The Joy of Sharing …

This is my sister Moo Shu. She doesn’t usually enjoy the spotlight, but the warm temperatures and open windows have given her confidence a boost.

These pictures were all taken at the same time …I was sitting on the deck

Moo Shu was in the kitchen window that looks out on the deck

Somebody’s grilling …

tuna steaks …

 I was thinking chicken

trust me …it’s tuna

Dogs, cats, inside, outside …we may smell things differently, but we joyfully share the same air. We think humans could learn a lot from us.

    I think humans could learn a lot from us, too! Especially about letting us bring deer legs home from a hike… Pip, you left out the important part — did you get something off the grill?Bunny

    I think YOU and Moo Shu are both right.. I sniffed my YapStop screen and I got a faint scent of CHICKEN of the SEA !!

    How very true! Moo Shu is very pretty. Kitties are fun to have around… well, some kitties, at least. I love my kitty sister, but my kitty brother Scribbles is mean to me! This morning he hissed at me and wouldn't let me by in the kitchen to get my morning treat!

    Hey Handsome Pip how are you on this fine afternoon? I just absolutely love your post. Moo Shu is a very pretty ladycat. If she sits by the window too much, you'll have to start guarding the door to keep the mancats away. So was it chicken or tuna?My peeps had salmon steaks last night.Hugs from your BFFF,Madi
