Healing Purrs Are Here

get well cats


So many cats we know and two-legged friends are ill or going through a rough patch (ourselves included). There’s our dear blogger friends at Brian’s Home  grappling with several issues and the cat blogger central CatBlogosphere has daily news and linkies for any cats needing purrs of healing and comfort for their peeps. The image, originally black and white

is a copyright-free antique photo from over a hundred years ago. It shows people loved their pets then as they do now. I had fun cleaning it up, imbuing it with love and healing purrs to share in two versions. Which do you prefer?

I’m not blogging on Tuesdays at either of my blogs and spent much of yesterday snuggling in bed with Merlin. It’s my version of slacking off. All online activity, including the usual 200 emails a day got a lick and a promise. My other version of what Grumpy Cat taught me is up at PetFinder.com and while tongue-in-cheek, it’s advice I’m heeding.

AND I finally succumbed to joining Instagram and will be sharing a more intimate slice of my life there. If you are on Instagram do follow me Catwisdom101 and I’ll follow you back. I have no idea what I’m doing but it looks like fun. Of course there are tons of cats. If anyone can suggest a good WP plugin for Instagram please do.

  1. What a wonderful antique photo!!!
    Yes, it’s so nice to see that people adored their kitties so much back then that they put that sweet photo together.

    (((purrs & prayers))) for all the kitties and friends that are sick and suffering.

  2. We like all the versions! Our mom has been slacking too. Sometimes there’s no help for it, blogging takes so much time, and there are only so many hours.

  3. We are always purring and praying for those that need it no matter if we know them or not. We ask the powers that rule the universe to heal,shelter and protect all. We hope that everyone that has a need gets it met and all comes right with their world. With the BIGGEST PURRRRRRRRRRSSS that we can muster bless all.

  4. I like all the versions of that lovely picture. We have so many friends who are ill, but I am sure our collective purrs and prayers are helping them.

  5. Such a great image- way back then and your nice colored version too.
    Brian’s family has been on my mind – he’s a wonderful friend to all cats and bloggers.
    Best wishes and purrs to you.

  6. We love the old photo and you made it look so pretty. We’re praying for efurrybuddy at Brian’s home, especially, Gracie and Brian as well as so many others, like Nylablue and Milou and several others. It seems as if it is already a very bad fall in terms of illness. We are all glad to be healthy here. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  8. I like all the versions of the pictures. They’re all beautiful.

    My fur-sibs and I have been sending purrs out round the clock to kitties all over the blogosphere and will continue to do so, for as long as they’re needed. We need to get all these kitties well again. Well again before the start of the new year.


  9. I like BOTH versions of the photo……it’s sweet no matter how you look at it. We hope everyone’s holiday brightens up soon including yours, Brian’s and so very many of our animal pals and humans right now. Seems like there’s an extra dose of “sad” going around. We send hugs and love to everyone.
