Molly and Oscar- A Tale of Two Kitties

Oscar is finally in his forever home. Actually he's been living with Molly and me since December 30th. I guess you can call him my New Year's baby. I am enjoying the new addition to our family. Molly? Not so much. For those of you who want to get up to speed. Go to my very first post entitled "Starting from Scratch". All may look peaceful here but don't let them fool you!
Oscar chases Molly all over the condo. She is certainly getting her exercise. She's 7 years old and he's just 1 year old. Molly is plum exhausted from his antics.

This is Oscar's usual state. Hiding and about to pounce! He still has his wild side. Poor thing has lived in 4 places in his young life. First he was outside in the bitter cold last winter, crying for food scraps in the parking lot of my apartment building. I met him on Valentine's Day night! Then in June when I rescued him I took him straight to the vets. He stayed there
for 2 weeks while I searched for a foster mom for him.
My sister sent out an email blast to all her friends and we found Diane and Michael who had recently lost their 20 year old cat. Diane said she would foster Oscar for 3 months. So off to
Diane's he went. He loved it there. Sleeping on a sheepskin rug, catching an occasional mouse and getting lots of lovin'. He was in kitty heaven. I visited him weekly to keep in touch. Diane and Michael could not have been a better match for Oscar's temperament.
Finally I bought a condo and moved in with Molly. I got her settled and then I was able to finally take Oscar home. It's been an adjustment for all of us. Diane and Michael come and visit and play with Oscar. Molly has learned to ignore him at times and I just love the little, um, not so little guy.


Molly sometimes tries to show him who's the boss!



This is the only safe haven for Molly. I'm sure Oscar could jump up on the sink but for some reason it doesn't appeal to him.




Molly, don't jump! Oscar will calm down, someday!
Stay tuned I'm sure they'll be a future post about the Tale of Two Kitties!

Your kitties are so cute..
Love the playful natures

Thanks for sharing..Deena
I just love your witty title. I can never think of interesting or witty titles for my blog. Molly and Oscar are so cute and it is so awesome that you rescued Oscar and now he lives with you. You cared enough to go past just thinking how he needed a home and did something about it.

I was wondering how they were getting along! Do two cats ever get along? I have no clue having never had a cat! Hope all of you are staying warm and safe! Sally

Loved this tale!
They are both beauties, and I'm sure they will eventually work it all out. Who knows, they probably even snuggle up together while you're away!! Where would we be without our furry friends?!! Keep posting their adventures!

My Aurora Katrina (kitty) loves to drink from the faucet. She'll sit by the sink and will look at me, look at the faucet, look at me...you know...kitty brain meld...until I turn it on for her to take a sip!

Hi Elaine (one of my long time friends name)
I thank you for making the rounds to me on Pink Saturday. I love the ballet shoes.
I love Molly and Oscar and I think you should join us for Cat's on Tuesday. My post is up if you would like to link to Gattina the lovely lady who hosts it.
Just a thought.
Love Claudie

Oh what a sweet rescue story! Your cats are so adorable. They remind me of Quincy and Mocha. Quincy is always chasing Mocha around and she's just too old for him. She's 13 and he's 2! I volunteer every Sunday at a cat rescue. I get my fill of cats there and love it. :)

Appleton Farms- Farm to Table and more

Friday night I rushed home from work, fed the kitties, changed my clothes and picked up my sister at her house. I couldn't wait to head up to Ipswich, MA and Appleton Farms for their farm to table dinner.  As soon as we pulled into the entrance of the property, all the tensions of the day went away.


The weather was cool, a perfect temperature for outdoor dining, live music and lawn games. What a peaceful setting.

The sign said play & have fun. I did not know how much fun we really would have.


Here's a view from the field. The tables were ready outside and there were more inside the barn.


Fences and stone walls encircled the field and property. Hay bales were set up as seating for listening to the live entertainment for the evening.


The band was named The Austin Torpedoes. They were wonderful. We really enjoyed their performance.


Lemonade was available at a self serve station. You could buy beer or wine from the Ipswich Ale Brewery Truck. Yes, the spiggots were right on …

Embracing the season-my Autumn checklist

It's the most wonderful time of the year! I am speaking of my favorite season Fall. We are in the thick of it now and it is fabulous! It's not quite peak foliage but we are getting there.

Here are my reasons to embrace Fall.

1.  Outdoor dining- Those early Fall days are even better than in Summer. Cooler temps make it more comfortable sitting in the sun and the scene is more colorful. In late Fall, I switch to sitting by fireplaces whenever I can.







2. Old graveyards- I am strangely drawn to old graveyards in the Fall. Maybe it's because most graveyards have fantasticly colorful trees and I just notice them more in Fall. Or perhaps it's the Halloween connection.

We have some very old graveyards in New England and they are definitely worth a visit.
You could even take a historic graveyard or ghost tour. There is a graveyard tour in my hometown in two weeks.




3. An Autumn Walk- What's better than an Autumn walk around your neighborhood?

I love to pick up some colorful …
