Three little Kittens

Click on the photos to enlarge .The third kitten is a bit shy and refuses to pose for the camera!

Dogs and children for some reason, gravitate towards me! I’m really good with both. I can spend hours in the company of dogs or children, without getting bored.

I’m not a cat person. I don’t hate them either, like some people do. Then again, I love most animals and since childhood, I’ve always had a variety of pets, ranging from a rescued bird that couldn’t fly, hamsters, fishes, a rescued kitten, a rescued squirrel, and dogs. I was forever, bringing home, one kind of animal or the other. In one of the places that I lived in, my house was next to a Blue Cross shelter. I was a familiar figure there.

Now, these three kittens and their mother have clawed their way into my life, with their cuteness ,charm, cunningness and antics. I have a patio that leads into the garden, and there is a rocking chair there, where I usually read my morning newspaper. The kittens have now discovered the joy of rocking! I laughed when I saw the bewildered expressions when they first climbed on it. And now,by Jove, they rock!


  1. Not surprisingly I like cats, but then I pretty much am an animal lover! I have also had various pets in my life - fish, injured birds, budgerigars, rabbits, dogs, cats, hamsters and such like. Of course, at the moment I have a dear old cat named Bob who is 17 years old and outside of my realtives is the longest relationship I have had in my life so far!

    Those kittens are so cute. I love the way the last one is popping up behind the chair adn the picture of the two with the bowl is fantastic!

  2. Bob-Kat: No wonder, we both have the same seduction style! Animal lovers --Hunters in seduction :-)Freud would have a field day on analysing this connection!!

    BTW,I showed my daughter your blog (The absolutely marvellous photos,I had to share) She wanted to know if you were really a cat, and whether cats could write!! (I laughed so much) Of course,later when I thought about it,I realised that in all the childrens story books, animals do talk.And she has seen my blog, and seen my photo on the right side.So she presumed that whoever writes the blog will have their picture displayed! Will tell her about your cat, Bob.

  3. have had everything from dogs, cats, lovebirds to even a turtle for a day..that was a very loooooong day. personally i lean towards dogs more..why ? well,

  4. Sweeties!
    I can spend long periods of time watching animals interact too. Even this afternoon, I went to visit my "borrowed cats" and I laughed so much at their behaviour. I can't say the same for children. Well, it depends on whether they're well-behaved or lunatic, but most of the ones I know are insane...:=)

  5. Aw, so falttered that you showed your daughter my blog and it is so cute (and so natural) that she assumed I am a cat.

    I borrowed my cats name when I first started blogging as I had no idea what to expect from the virtual world and wanted to keep my anonymity. I kind of like being a cat :-)

    Freud would have a field day with the hunter / animal lover thing wouldn't he? LOL!!

  6. Aw, too cute! Who can resist kittens?!! So sad that they have to grow into cats and become all aloof and indifferent. Oh wait, that's me, no, kittens will be fine, not to worry. :)

  7. I had a cat who sadly died in 2003..she was 17 years old. I love cats! fact this has been the longest I've lived without a cat all my life. My daughter Annie would love a this year I plan to find another!!

    Over the years there has been: Sammy, Winky, Tiggy, Beauty, Moses and Zippy, Baggins, Misty, Smeagol and finally Dusty. Cats names are fantastic!..isn't that

  8. Absolutely adorable.

Life is so unpredictable. Stop judging! #Sridevi

This morning I woke up to the news of the legendary Sridevi, being no more at 54. I have grown up watching her movies. She is a tremendously talented actor.

I have been reading so many write-ups about her. There are whatsapp forwards, blog posts, news reports, status updates and so much more.

What I do not understand is how people comment on her personal life. They have watched her movies, or met her at an event, or know her through 'friends of friends' etc. They talk about how she 'tried to hold on to her beauty', how she went under the scalpel, how she was stressed etc etc.
Everything about her is open game --no matter what the truth is.

I am saddened reading these discussions.

I lost my father to a cardiac arrest. He was healthy,  fit as a fiddle, had none of the age related ailments and looked so much younger for his years. He had twice the energy of someone half his age. Even on the day he passed away, he had gone for his usual 6 km walk. He was just 66.  It was…

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.

I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…


Be that man Who looks his woman in the eye when he gets home And says ‘You look beautiful, darling.’ And means it. Because this thing you have going is Sacred
Be that man Who offers his woman a back rub, a glass of wine Or coffee Or simply some time and space Where she can be herself. Because this thing you have going is Sacred

Be that man Who doesn’t make jokes about his woman, behind her back Because she is too precious, too dear Some things you do not joke about Because this thing you have going is Sacred.
Be that man Who would drop everything in a jiffy to be beside her Not because she cannot manage But because you know how much she hates to do it all by herself Tell her she is strong and brave, And hold her hand Because this thing you have going is Sacred ______________________ **************© 2018 Preeti ShenoyFor more poems click here.
