All Good Things...

I'm taking a hiatus from this blog for a while. Mom is extremely busy with multiple projects, and for the foreseeable future she only has time to maintain one kitty blog, and that will be The Ballicus Blog for my siblings and me.

I'll miss posting here, and perhaps I'll be back here again someday. But please visit me at The Ballicus Blog. I look forward to seeing you there!

Getting in Mom's Lap

Since Mom works at her computer a lot, I get plenty of lap time! And even when Mom is up or out and about, I love to sit on top of her computer. It's one of my favorite places in the house.

When Mom gets settled in her chair and props her feet on the desk, I turn and look at her. And if you look at the bottom right side of the picture, you'll see the top part of Mom's pink fuzzy sock.

I start eyeballing Mom's lap.

Then I'm on my way!

*snuggle, snuggle, snuggle*, *purrrrrr, purrrrrr, purrrrrr*


Added a bit later: I've turned on comment moderation. I apologize. Maybe I won't have to leave it on for too long. But I was slammed by eleven pieces of spam on this one post in just a short time, and it looked like pretty bad spam, too. So I want to be careful.

Rubs, scritches, and snuggles -- oh, my!

Here is a video of Mom giving me rubs and scritches:

Which led, of course, to me snuggling in her lap:

Oh, it's good to love and be loved!

My Blog Looks Different!

Wow, Mom! Thanks! And special thanks to Zoolatry for the beautiful new header they designed for me. *purrrrrrrrr* You are wonderful -- much love to you and to your talented Mom!

What do you think, my darling Mickeybear?

Oh my, it has been so long since I have blogged! I've put in appearances on my siblings' blog, but I've really missed this place.

My mom has been so busy, working on her novel. But we Ballicai are careful to make sure she's always under proper snoopervision.

In fact, I often perch on her new computer, which has become one of my favorite sleep spots! It's nice and warm, and if I barf a hairball on it, it's easy to clean up (unlike that confounded Yamaha last year).

Wanted to add: changing the look of my blog was a snap! I simply switched my template to Minima (all my sidebar widgets were maintained when I switched), then I added one of the nifty backgrounds available from here: The Cutest Blog on the Block: Free Backgrounds.

In the Flowers

Here is what I dreamed about last night:

Mickeybear and me, in the late summer flowers, up on the mountain where Mom hikes.

Close Up for My Mickeybear!

Hi, my darling dear! Are we close enough now for a whisker-kiss? *purrrrrrrrr*

Late Summer Flower

On a hike in the mountains yesterday, Mom found a beautiful late summer flower. My darling Mickeybear, I'm giving it to you! And I'll share a poem from one of Mom's favorite poets.

A little road not made of man,
Enabled of the eye,
Accessible to thrill of bee,
Or cart of butterfly.

If town it have, beyond itself,
'Tis that I cannot say;
I only sigh, -- no vehicle
Bears me along that way.

~ Emily Dickinson

Sent with purrs and whisker kisses!

For Monty Q.'s Little Sprout

Tragically gone, at the age of three months, with deep condolences to the family of Monty Q.

"Part of Me..."

I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday and the day before that too.
I think of you in silence. I often say your name.
But all I have are memories and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake, with which I'll never part.
God has you in His keeping. I have you in my heart.
I shed tears for what might have been. A million times I've cried.
If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly. In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place, no one can ever fill.
It broke my heart to lose you, but you didn't go alone.
For part of me went with you, the day God took you home.
