Day o the Cat

Yes, that's me, the Panther or Mountain Lion of North Carolina.  We are known for howling with a screech that sounds like a child. If you step on my tail I might sound like that, but I generally am more soft spoken. And actually local folks call that big cat a Painter, which is my other name too.

Here's my other persona, the one that lives and thrives in an apartment with two or three feedings a day.

And a TV to watch Nature shows on...I love Nature on PBS.

Sometimes my person/servant is nice and leaves the channel I like going while she goes away.  I've found some neat new things which she knows nothing about.  And the other day she was channel surfing and found "Planet Earth 2" or something like that.  Sometimes she turns the sound off, which gets very intense whenever an animal is in danger, but they usually come through things alright.

I'll leave you now, there's a bit of food somewhere on me, that must take my attention Right Now.

There, all is right with the world.

Quotes for the day:

It was my life - like all lives, mysterious and irrevocable and sacred. So very close, so very present, so very belonging to me. How wild it was, to let it be.
Cheryl Strayed

Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.
Helen Keller

We must slow down to a human tempo and we’ll begin to have time to listen.
Thomas Merton
It is natural to feel let down when we see our fellow humans behaving badly, return the focus to your own life.
Today, more than ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of Universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to other forms of life.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama
The destiny of humans cannot be separated from the destiny of Earth.
Thomas Berry


  1. cats have the life of riley don't they; they call them painter here too, I think with the southern accent is supposed to be panther, ha. california called them mountain lions, arkansas called them puma or panther and south west calls them panther.

  2. Sometimes when I save a quote it gets jammed into a "box" with another one, or two or three...I had no idea all these quotes were getting published when I selected the top one! Jokes on me!
