|Here's Myles, our kitty, when we first brought |
him home. Oh, so tiny and cute!! (so is Myles)
We have a kitty cat that reminds me of Garfield in almost every way. He's an orange tabby, and he's flabby! He eats twice a day (because I have to split up his once-a-day-feeding into 2 "helpings" to trick him into thinking he is eating more...) and then he sleeps for almost the entire day. He refuses to eat salmon, chicken, tuna...the only thing he wants to eat is his crunchy dry cat food. The vet calls him a carbohydrate "junky." LOL Maybe he'd eat lasagna, like Garfield---but I've not given him the chance to try it! LOL Anyway, I think he's learned how to pop the lid off his food container because I don't understand how he's become such a tub of "over-sized flabbyness."
|Ding, ding! Oh boy! Time for din-din!|
At first, he was rather "active"---playful and running around like a wild kitty! Exploring his new world. Hey, he even enjoyed a "bed time story" too! (I just love the expressions on their faces here....Myles looks so "thrilled!" LOL)
|Bedtime Story, May 2007|
Maybe it was all the love and attention he received that "kept him from exercising." ?? (Could we be enjoying our Heavenly Father's lap--where it's nice and cozy---just a little too much, instead of hopping down and exercising our faith just a little bit too--to keep us "in shape" spiritually??) Hhhmmmm.
|The Royal Treatment for a "king."|
Sooner or later it was bound to happen. . . the typical life of a cat began to emerge. No more did we see playful little Myles romping around, chasing anything he could swat across the floor.
|Talk about an excuse for not doing your homework!?|
My fat cat fell asleep on my notebook!
My daughter didn't look too disappointed either! LOL (2007)
S L O W L Y, but surely, he took over our recliner. . . and there you'd find him, always propped up lazily in the corner of the recliner. Every now and then he'd roll over, or change positions ever so slightly, so as to not disturb his "body alignment." LOL
|We are no longer allowed to enjoy our recliner! LOL (2010)|
But ME, I want to live a life that will be pleasing in my Father's eyes.
So every morning I better wake up, & stretch these muscles of faith.
I better get fed by the Word, and live as the Lord saith.
I'll follow Him each & every day; my life will not be boring!
And while you lay there purring so contently, I'll be busy, & not snoring!
Dear Father, even though the lazy life of a kitty seems appealing at first glance, please help me to be reminded whenever I see him resting there comfortably that You want me to be busy...serving You by serving others....Thank You Father for the promise of Your help for me today, even if I am tired. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
