Feline and Nature Friday...the 13th


We thank our Host LLB Gang and Comedy Plus

 Feline Wisdom as seen on Mutts, by Patrick McConnell,

Mutts does not allow copy and pasting so I have recreated it
BECAUSE it reminded us so very much of Madi.
She loved beds and she loved to Meow. She meowed more her first day here than our first cat
meowed in all of his 14 1/2 years.
Below are the words that were in the cartoon panels
"No matter what yesterday was like, CATS always start a new day with a 

Photo in the bottom right has always been a favorite. We did not witness how Diva Madi got in the middle of the pillows without any falling out of place. Some itty bitty paw prints on the green and white pillows gave us a clue.

Thanks LLB Gang for Hosting Nature Friday

Thanks Comedy Plus for hosting Feline Friday

On Friday October 30(the day after T.S. Zeta literally BLEW thru NC)
we took a most enjoyable ~hour walk (I stopped for lots of photos).
The trail was covered in a thick layer of pine needles from all the wind.
It was so thick I could feel it through my New Balance shoes.
It was a beautiful day and for once I will offer no commentary.  
We were on the Shelley Lake portion of the Capital Area Greenway
All the water you see in the photos are babbling brooks, creeks and tributaries.

Monday we took this very trail...the asphalt trail is now covered.


  1. oooh that would be the way for us... can you see da ice skating competition of our staff? hahahahaha

  2. Hari OM
    OH my word... first that lovely recreation with Madi... then that forest ramble - delightful... YAM xx

  3. Flynn also had the loudest meow I have ever known.
    The walk looks lovely.

  4. What a super walk in the forest. We too are familiar with those thick carpets of pine needles.

  5. What a beautiful spot for a walk! How we miss you, Madi♥

  6. Oh how I miss our sweet Madi girl.

    Beautiful place. I wouldn't mind taking walks there.

    Hope you have a great weekend.

  7. What a gorgeous place for a walk. The fallen pine needles make such a nice cushion for walking, just like damp leaves do.

  8. Of course, you know just how I feel about your angel...she was a beauty! And your trail the perspective of each & every one of the photos!

  9. That was fun with Madi and such beautiful scenery on your walk!

  10. Madi was such a pretty girl. Cats do have indoor and outdoor voices. I had a cat once that rarely said anything.

    Beautiful walk. I wish I'd been with you.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. Big hug. ♥

  11. What lovely memories of Miss Madi. We would love to go on a walk at Shelley Lake. It looks like a beautiful and peaceful place to visit.

  12. Looks like a wonderful location!
    All of our green is gone now; the bare trees don't block the soft sunshine.

  13. madi; ewe bee lookin most gorgeouz ther; mom iz rite that fotoz total lee way soooper grate kewl !!

    C; many of the trail photos remind me of my grandparents property; thanx for sharing; I could sooooo live there :) ☺☺♥♥

  14. Awww Madi was such a sweetheart! Love your photos! Thanks for sharing them!

  15. Your tours are always so nice! We enjoy seeing them!

  16. You are having a lovely fall. Z cat hardly ever meowed. Hmmm, Madi was a talker♥

  17. Love that view of the covered Trail. Absolutely gorgeous trees and I like that I can't see a man-made Trail. That is a priceless picture of Maddie in the middle of those pillows. Absolutely adorable

  18. What beautiful photos of your walk!! Stream reflections, pine needle covered walks...I can't even pick a favorite shot!

    Of course, your recreation of the Mutts comic starring Angel Madi really stole the show!

  19. We would just love to roam through all those leaves on that trail. So pretty.

    Hope you all have dried out by now.

  20. Cute angel Madi cartoon. Beautiful photos. XO

  21. What a gorgeous place for a walk..............we sure do miss Madi - mentioning the paw prints on pillows reminded me that after Sammy left us, I was cleaning behind the couch one day and saw a couple of his footprints in the carpet....I've left them. Some things NEED to be forever.

    Hugs, Pam

  22. Madi was quite the talker. She had a lot to say. Google Otter Personality. You may find Madi there. Loved the pic with her mouth wide open.

  23. Angel Madi and Mutts cracked us up. Your autumn is lovely.

  24. A beautiful area and we are so glad you enjoy it

  25. I loved seeing Madi enjoying herself and telling the world about it! You sure have some lovely places to walk.


Please leave a meow or bark for Angel Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
