Hymn to MoonHymn to Moon by Moonlight-Seraph
In a year of intense heat and cold and
A few precious days so bright and sweet that
We worked in the garden all day
And Moon strutted the length of the yard
And ate grass like a tabby cow,
Barely a vegetable grew in the dark-soiled
Raised beds. I remember the summer
And the mosquitos and the cool beneath the deck
Where he relaxed, away from we humans, naive and dumb.
I remember the day
That we had dinner outside and the little cat escaped
And ran to the corner of the yard, frantic,
Not knowing us, ready
To climb the fence and be lost to us forever, and he
Raced out and cornered her, and then she ran again
And again he cornered her and stood
A huge grey guardian
Above the tiny form until
We picked her up and carried her back
Into the house. He saved her life
That day. Can’t one,
Just one, mortal person or animal be immortal,
Forever? Not in a glaze-eyed half-life, not in
An impossible paradise of salmon and turkey where
Cats go when they die:
Bright, immortal, purring
Jessie's Top 5 Reasons NOT to Elect HillaryJessie's Top 5 Reasons NOT to Elect Hillary by AshWolf-Forever
I know this may seem out of line here. After all, I am a cat, and I cannot vote. However, in the light of Pam’s passing I feel it my duty to try and purr-sway as many as possible. My original human loved to see women in business and politics; women in power. We cats are already aware that females are superior to males, but humans seem to be slow to catch that drift. Without further hoopla, I present my Top 5 Reasons NOT to Elect Hillary Clinton:
#5: Never trust someone who picks the dog over the cat. Especially when the cat was there first.
#4: The democrats have had eight years, and we have seen where that has gotten us. We need smaller government, not an everything-forced-down-the people’s-throats mess. Do you know how much cat food costs these days?
#3: “This has been a difficult week for the State Department and for our country. We’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen rage and violen
Owlstar's future 28Soon morning came with welcoming glow and the pure white tom began to open his eyes from the peaceful slumber of the she-cat Blueblossom.Owlstar's future 28 by FireEmber345
*Oh, Blueblossom, we were supposed to meet at River Tail last night.
But the storm cause us to stay in our clans for the night.
Maybe she'll be waiting tonight.* The Owl Clan warrior mentally pondered as he let out a yawn.
He saw that his brother was not in his den, then saw him with a pigeon in his mouth.
*It's good to see that he's fine now.
I better get to work too.* Owlskull thought as he walked outside the medicine cats den.
"Let all cats old enough to catch their own prey meet me at Talon's Eye for a clan meeting." Bloodstar's words echoed the clamp and every member of Owl Clan came to his call.
Owlskull sat next to Hawkfeather as he was stretching then lied down.
"So where have you been?
You never came into the warrior den.
Most of us got worried." Hawkfeather yawned as he look so relaxed.
Owlskull flattened his ears in awkwardness of w
Jessie's Top 10 Ways to Help a WriterJessie's Top 10 Ways to Help a Writer by AshWolf-Forever
Writers. Of all the breeds of human known to felines, they are the most common and the most troublesome. Retired humans are far more suitable companions, but I digress. I am Lady Jessie. I, along with my cousin Avonlea and her sons, am the exasperated owner of a human named Ashleigh Cutler. I inherited Ashleigh upon the death of my previous human. Despite her best efforts, her daughter is not nearly as well trained. In honor of my beloved Pam, I offer my Top Ten Ways to Help a Writer:
#10: Enforce feeding schedules. Not just yours, either. It is important to remind your human to eat, as they will easily forget about such things while working.
#9: Enforce break times. Your human may not want to pry themselves away from the computer, but sitting there for hours staring at a blank page will only frustrate them. So sit in front of the screen and bat their hands until they get the hint.
#8: Be supportive. Yes, most of w
