Monday Musings

It's Monday and the start of a new week.
Just wanted to update everyone who's been praying for us during our Wild Fire in the mountains recently.  As of last night the fire had been updated to 50% contained.  No further buildings have been destroyed and no lives have been lost.  Best news of all.....

It's RAINING!


We had a sudden and brief rainshower here on Friday night but it didn't reach the fire area.

This morning it's rained quite a bit although it's starting to clear off already.  I'm hoping though that the rain reached the fire area to help put that fire completely out.

In the meantime here are some cute cats to share for Mancat Monday.

Captain Cuddles (sleeping)  He wouldn't look up no matter what I tried.  Also the newest member of our "mancat" family,  Bandit.


 This is our oldest "mancat" - Harley

This is the 2nd to youngest of our male cats,  Spooky-boo.

I'll share photos of the girls another day.

Have a great day!

    I am sorry to hear of the terrible fires in your area...praise God that no lives have been lost! Fires have always worried me... Thank goodness for some rain...I do hope it reaches the fire area!

    Your cats are absolutely gorgeous, Ida! Just look how adorable Mr Bandit has grown...he is just too cute for words! All your kitties are in fact!

    Wishing you a wonderful and very blessed week! Lots of love and hugs!

  9. So glad the wildfire has been contained! I am also breathing a sigh of relief that it finally rained here west of the Cascades. It has been so dry.....so scary! Your 'Man-cats' are a handsome bunch! I love that you have so many! I am down to two after many years of having a crowd. I always adopt the strays :) Have a great week!

    Rain is wonderful, I think, even when we may not need it. It's a cleansing blessing.

  24. Totally stunning photos, Ida. I really loved the rain drops on rose petals one: that one was a knockout with the great quotation to go along with the image. And your cats are adorable - so very, very handsome, every last one of them. Looking forward now to "Femcat Friday". All the best, Bonny

  27. Thank God for rain, hope the forest fires will stop! Be safe. Love your image & words -- you've done a haiga! (picture/haiku combo). And your cats are adorable ... wow so many boys & girls (a full house :) So glad I stopped by to catch up ... a lovely post :)

  28. So glad to hear that they have so much of that fire contained, and the timely fall of some much needed rain. So thankful no lives lost!!

    I would love to take a nap like Captain Cuddles. My girls stayed up late every night on our camping trip, and still woke with the sun. I felt very much like Capt Cuddles, not wanting to lift my head from the pillow.

  29. The kitties are so pretty and they are not camera shy I see :)

    Have a Wonderful Day!
    Peace :)

  30. love your cat shots-such adorable faces! I just want to say I have tried and failed with google+..it is overwhelming though I have good intentions having saved a 'google+ for dummies' to read on a rainy day. glad your fires are under control, here they are raging out of control in certain spots, rivers are dry and the concern is for the fish, insects, plant life, crops etc.-tough summer everywhere.
