The Big Piney Woods Cats

Pussywillows

Mom and Dad have been spending more and more time outside, combing the lawn with big grooming brushes and using the noisy monsters to help them cut down trees and split wood. This is a sure sign of spring in the Big Piney Woods. They come inside smelling of smoke and tree juice. (Mom calls this sap.) They say every muscle in their bodies hurt, even muscles they didn't know they had. Now, why would someone hurt themselves by overworking like that. They don't do any stretching or meditating before going out, that is one of the problems. They need to take lessons from us.

Mom said one of the bushes they cut down was a pussywillow, so she cut some branches and brought them inside. However, I do not see any cats, or kittens, for that matter, in the branches. All I see is that wooden cat their boy bought in Hawaii.

    We used to have some of those. We consider them to be toys for us. Well, they do have all the requirements.

    But Mom says no. Which is why we don't have any anymore.

    I am glad you are getting spring too. Humans need to take some lessons from kitties about stretching, then they wouldn't get sore muscles. My mum is complaining her shoulder hurts from carrying her laptop home. Silly mum.

    I especially like the juxtaposition of the kitty and the pussywillows. Perfect.

    Our Mom tried to grow a pussy willow plant, but no success. She collects cat statues, too. We should let her show them on our blog!
