And I’d rather call this album, the language of cats. We used to have three  cats in the house. They multiply rapidly so one time I even thought of having them neutered. We never got the chance to name them properly except that  they were called  Uno, Dos, Tres.  Not very original I guess, but the easiest to remember.

Yes, they were all females  and they all answered to the name Miming. They are all gone now, they just upped and left, one by one. I wonder why, in all the years that we had cats as pets, we never saw them die inside the yard. An old friend said that if they fall ill, they  leave the house and stay somewhere else. All we have now is an all-white kitten which my mom adopted a month  ago when we saw it lodged near our overhead water tank, crying and probably looking for food.  I have around fifty pictures of them, taken at different days but I love the following shots when they were not just sleeping or staying in a corner at peace with the world but busy  climbing our ampalaya trellis and exploring.

What’s in there?

I am all alone here, they won’t see me….

Then there were three. This is a favorite place, our concrete garden set where I sometimes read and update my journal.

Looking for what?

And she said,  “better make it good” when she saw me with a camera.

Don’t disturb, can’t you see I am having a nap?

Oh no, don’t….I am camera shy!

This is my space…..

Ah, the adventure begins!

Uno said, I can do it…I can climb too, better than you can….

Tired finally and the cats’ day out is over.

Caught one of our cats perched serenely atop one of the branches of our avocado tree this morning and I can’t help but snap a few shots. There are  times in one’s life when you wish you could shut off the noise of this world and listen to the silence, when you’re at peace with God’s voice egging you to go on with life and never give up.

She must be saying, “Hello world, good morning”.

Oh, she was  suddenly shy, hiding her face just when I was about to click the camera.

“That’s the last shot you’ll take of me, please respect my privacy.”

Crazy, you might say but sometimes, our pets teach us to stay focused and enjoy what the day brings.

Finally found time to take a few shots of our  half-breed Rottweiler pup and Soo Kee, our old dog.  It’s always a joy to play with them – romping in the garden, resting in the hammock  and just following you around wherever you go.  And this quote best describe how a dog loves us:

I talk to him when I’m lonesome like; and I’m sure he understands.  When he looks at me attentively, and gently licks my hands;

then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat.

For the good Lord knows i can buy more clothes, but never a friend like that…W. Dayton Wedgefarth
