Ted

 Ted is a very old cat.

Pretty much blind and mostly deaf.

A tad unsteady on his pins, he’s nonetheless of robust appetite.

His voice is loud and strong.

Ted is not fond of being alone.

Fortunately he sleeps a lot.

Time passes without much notice.

He seems to wake just as Fairy Godmother is on her way.

She leaves the blind up so he can look out for her.

When she comes, he’ll eat again.

She’ll rub him all over with a warm washcloth.

Kisses and snugglers.

After, there’s surprise extra in the bowl to finish up.

When he comes out from the kitchen she’s gone.

Licking her scent off his fur reminds him.

When that’s done, he’s comfy and sleepy.

He’ll wake just before she drives up in the morning.

And be waiting in the window.

Pirate Kitty by codifyer

Mixed Media Artist and Cat Lover Aza Cody has created a sweet tribute to her own kitty, Indigo called Pirate Kitty Cat Toon.

Using one live cat, a stuffed dog from her childhood and a cast of felted actors, she tells the story of a homeless cat who dreams he is a hero.

The video above is the music ‘toon’ and the one below is the story read by LuRain Penny.

Enjoy! And don’t forget to let us know how you liked it.

Cheers!
