Inspired by true events...

        Maria has cared for her very ill mother for many years. Her burdens are heavy, causing a sadness bordering on darkness.  When she discovers her historic barn is now home to a mother cat and kittens, she feels lighter than she has in years. As the kittens grow, they teach her as only animals can do.
          Then tragedy strikes. As Maria loses her family, the darkness envelopes her like the heavy fog that blankets her Blue Ridge Mountain home each morning. She creates a scorecard:  God: 9, Maria: 0.  Her questions turn into anger at God.  She searches to find answers as to why her loving God would take away so much in such a short time.
          How will she learn to trust again? Can the kittens in her barn help her heal?

    1. Hey Pat. I love cats too. Or at least, I have loved one cat during my lifetime and she was brilliant. She taught me how to love a cat.

  7. Pets can be very therapeutic, though I've always been skittish around cats (I'm more of a dog person). I think it's because they love unconditionally and are always happy to see you.

    1. I never knew I liked cats until one in particular adopted me and my whole family more than 10 years ago. She made me love cats.

  8. Fun times! I love cats. Grew up with them and I miss having a kitty, but my son has crazy allergies, so my cat days are probably over.

    1. Aw. Maybe you can get one of those hairless cats? Cats are great. Dogs too of course;) My dogs are frowning at me now.
