The Kitchen

The kitchen is my favorite room in the house. There is a lot of activity there and if I hang around long enough, something eventually drops on the floor that is edible. You could say that I help keep the floor cleaner.
Also I notice that the lady likes me around no matter where she is and to tell the truth, I like hanging out with her no matter where she is.
Here the rule is for everyone to come through the kitchen door. Everyone unless it is someone she doesn't know them comes in through that door.It gets real active some and there is always a lot of hugs and good feelings. No one gets past the kitchen until they say hello to me.
On the nights when she teaches the spiritual class there are a lot of ladies that come through that door and they all give me love and attention. Some of them may give me a bite of cracker or a chip even though I am not supposed to have it.
A lot of people like to hang out in this room for a while and have a cup of coffee or something. There is just something about this room. It always feels so good in especially when she is cooking and all thee wonderful smells fill the house. Yup! It is my favorite room.

What we want.

As animals we want the same things you do. We want buddies, comfort, food, peace. children and the right to just be what we are. We are content with that.

The weather

You humans talk a lot about the weather and what it is going to be. I wonder why you do this? Animals don't do this at all. We have a sort of built in radar that tells us what it is going to be.
For the most part we just stay in the moment and deal with it. If it is hot we slow down and don't do much at all in the hottest part of the day. If it is turning colder we get thicker fur and the birds get more water proof down under their feathers. Eating more to build up body fat when there is less food in winter is just something my wilder animal friends do and the squirrels store food by burying it in the ground.
If it rains we are going to get wet. That is just the way it is. We don't worry if it is going to rain or give it a second thought.
Are you aware that we know if there is going to be an earthquake or a tsunami? We feel it in the energy of the earth. We are pretty awesome creatures when you think about it. The only thing I personally don't like is thunder and lightning. It scares me because it is so loud and the flashes of light almost hurt my eyes. I like to stay close to my human when that happens. She loves storms...go figure! She gets this look on her face of wonder and awe and talks to this God friend of hers when she sees a storm. wonder why she does that but it makes her happy and peaceful so it is what it is.
