People love their pets and I am a forever animal lover. I will always adopt from animal shelters and love the little guys as much as I can. I currently have two cats and a lop eared bunny. I get endless enjoyment out of watching them perform everyday tasks such as sleeping, eating, and playing with their toys. I love going to sleep every night with the fuzzballs curled up on either side.
Moving to Nashville has me thinking I will be making something like this (because I will no longer have a social life and I don't care too much for tv):
This cat bed is actually a coffee table turned upside down. It has been embellished with some "oops!" paint and knobs from Home Depot. The painted knobs have been drilled into the bottom of the table legs, creating bedposts! A wooden border (that you would use on the floor against the walls) has been measured to fit inbetween two of the legs, constructing a cat-headboard. I just invented another word! Ollie (my bunny) will be getting a much bigger cage and Phoebe and Coal (the cats) will be getting these little ditties. I'm sure that won't stop the three of them from stomping all over me in my sleep but I wouldn't change a thing! I am fortunate in that I have live backup for my alarm.
Oh, Pooh Bear, how much you've taught us all! The precious little nugget above is being sold for $45 at Salvage Chic Antiques in Pembroke. That's the kind of piece I could build an entire nursery around. Each and every one of us will be blessed if we find a soul that speaks to our own the way Christopher Robin's spoke to Pooh. We would all be blessed to have a circle of friends that loved one another like Rabbit, Piglet, Tigger and the rest of the gang.
Some of my favorite Winnie the Pooh quotes:
"If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you."
"Some people care too much. I think it's called love."
"There is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think, but the most important thing is, even if we're apart....I'll always be with you."
"You're just in time for the best part of the day!....When you and me become we."
"You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes."
