                                           Look at all the toys! I got some treats and another 
                                           toy for Christmas.
                                            Do you know what I am most happy about?
                                            Yup! Having a home of my very own!
                                            I am SO happy I was adopted!

My housemates

Winnie:  Hi friends. I am getting more settled 
in my new home. I like Mum a lot.
I like Auntie and Uncle too.
I am having lots of fun here.
I am a lucky cat and I have built in friends.

 Summer is a pretty nice cat.
Mum says her furs are very soft.
We get on OK but are not besties yet.

This is BC. She is black like me, though she has more 
white furs  as you can see on her neck and tummy.
She likes to play and chase strings.

                                          We are not big friends yet, but slowly getting there.
                                          When we do become friends, it will be pretty lively
                                           around here! We all like to play and run around.
                                          I have been exploring this place and it is pretty nice.
                                          There is lots of room to run around! There are even stairs 
                                           here. Exploring will be such fun and this place is way
                                            more fun than the SPCA shelter.

                                           Mum says Christmas is just days away, but I already have
                                           my present... a great new home and a Mum that loves me!!!
                                           As it will be busy over the next few days, I will wish you all
                                            MERRY CHRISTMAS and  HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Winnie: Gee I bet I can fit under this bedside table!



Heh!! New I could do it!!!!!!
Not very exciting under here though...
Maybe I will go hop on the bed instead.
It is soft and cozy!

Hello from Winnie and a Remembrance of Julie

Winnie: Mum and I would like to thank
Ingrid Rickmar for this lovely tribute and remembrance for 

                                       I did not know Julie, but Mum tells me she was a
                                                  wonderful companion and friend.
                                                 I know I have big paws to fill and I will do my best.

                                                 We are  off to a pretty good start as Mum needed a kitty   
                                                 to love and I needed a loving home with a human to love.
                                                 We are settling into our home with  mum's sister and hubby.
                                                 I still have not met my furcousins BC and Summer,
                                                 There have been glimpses though and maybe some hisses.
                                                 Good thing we all have lots of time!!

                                                 It has been a while since mum posted and she is rusty! 
                                                 Must be a sign of...age maybe   MOL

                                                  Anyway, see you all soon!!!!!

Family Members

Winnie: I friends. Getting mum to help has been a trial.
Luckily, I have prevailed!
Life is pretty good here, but I am still  bit shy.
I will introduce my housemates.

This is BC. She belongs to mums sister.
Mum says she is a cutie.
She stayed with her when  her son moved out.
She liked it here and made friends with the resident 
cat named Summer.

 This is Summer and she belongs to Mums sister.

We are still slowly getting to know each other.
Mum and I like each other a lot too!
Good thing we have lots of time.
Life is good and I am sure it will stay that way.
As long as mum is around I am happy, no matter
where I am!

Hello from Winnie

                                                   Hi, Winnie here. It is taking me a while
                                                    to  get the hang of this blogging thing.
                                                    I is even harder to get mum to help.
                                                    I am loving my new home. I have so much more room
                                                    than I did at the shelter.  I am in a room with Mum.
                                                    I still have not met the other cats , but I hear them.
                                                   I am getting used to the sounds.                                                                

                                                     Mum says I will get to meet the cats soon.
                                                      She wanted to make sure I was comfy in
                                                      this place and  I am. Compared to a cage this 
                                                      place is awesome! I even get this huge bed to sleep
                                                      on too! I know I am going to love it here and I am 
                                                       SO happy!!!

                                                                I'll be seeing you all soon!

Hello from Edwina

Hi there. My name is Edwina.
I tend to get called Winnie.
Mum adopted me from the SPCA.
Mum says I  was born September 30,2018.
That makes me 5 years old.

                                                   I am really happy to have my own home now!
                                                   I have my own room that I share with mum,
                                                   It is SO nice to be here and I really like mum.
                                                   There are two other cats here, but we have not met yet.
                                                    That may take a while as I need to get comfy here.
                                                    I am pretty sure I am going ti like this place and I already
                                                    like MUM!

                                                    Mum and I are ready to start our new life chapters together.
                                                    This will be SO exciting!

Farewell from Julie

Julie posting from the rainbow Bridge

Julie: Hi friends. I am sorry to say that the 
breast cancer I had some time ago has reared its
ugly head again. I was enjoying life with Mum
and Auntie L and Uncle J. We had moved in with them .
They have two cats...Summer and BC(black cat)
I was also losing weight. In spite of this, I was
doing Ok. 
Lately, however, I started to not feel so well.
Mum took me to the Vet and we got the bad news.
That evil C was back!

Here is my last picture and last post.
As you can see, I am at the Vet place
getting ready for my final journey.
I am happy that Mum and I moved in with
Auntie L and Uncle J and my fur cousins
BC and Summer.
At least she will not be alone when I go to
the Bridge.

Mums eyes are very leaky as she does not
want to say goodbye. I do not either, but I just do
not feel well.
Over the next few days Mum will post some pics of my
 fur cousins, Summer and BC.
 Maybe they will carry on the blog.

I have really enjoyed visiting with you, my friends.
I do not want to go, but I am not feeling the best.
Maybe on special times when the moon is right
I will pop in to say Hi!
I will miss you my friends!
I will miss you Mum!!!!!!!!!!!

Mum: Julie, I will always love you and miss you!

 Julie:  July,2009 - November 6, 2023

Hi from Julie

Julie: Well! Getting Mum to help me blog has been 
a bit of work. Finally got het to do it for me,
I still spend lots of time in my room as I am
still a bit nervous of Auntie Linda's place.
The other two cats here are younger and we have not
spent time together to be considered friends.
Maybe one of these days, but I confess that I am not in a hurry.
I am happy and that is enough for now.

                                                 I will get mum to get some pictures of the other 
                                                 two for the next post. They are actually pretty
                                                 nice cool cats,  Purrs for now!

Julie blogging from our new home

Julie: Hi friends! It has been a while since I blogged.
Lots has happened. I did have an operation but it
did not accomplish all we wanted it to for me.

Julie: Mum and I have moved in with Mum's
younger sister. We are now  in Kentville. 
There are 2 cats there. It will
take a while for us to get along but that is OK
as we have lots of time.
I did have my operation, but it was not a complete success.
There was a mass and the Vet was not able to 
remove it all. I did well in recovery, but I do have a limp.
Mum will help me live  the best life I can and I am
happy as long as I am with her.

There is a large deck here and a big back yard .
There is also lots of grass for me to nibble.

 This is Snoopy. She is a big cat. She likes being outside too.
We are not pals but we tolerate each other ,
I do spend a lot of time in my room resting.

Next time, I will introduce Summer, the other cat.

For now, I am happy as long as I am with mum.
That makes me happy and for now I feel pretty good.

My new adventure...Moving!


Julie: Hi friends. Just thought I would pop 
in to let you know I may be offline for a bit.
We are moving!
Mum and I are going to live with Mum's sister.

New adventures for me.
There are two cats  there!
I will let you know how it goes!

Monday 18 September 2023

Relaxing outside before my operation

Julie: I enjoyed sitting on the ramp this weekend.
This was on |Sunday.
I did not get out on Saturday as we had a BIG storm.
Lucky for us, it was not too bad. As we are on a hill,
water does not tend to stick around. We did not lose
power as many others did.

I really enjoy Summer as I get to sit outside.
It is pretty quiet here so that makes it even better.
I never wander too far as |I know mum keeps an eye on me.

 I have a lump on my belly. I have to go to the Vet
on Wednesday to have it removed. Needless to say
I am not looking forward to that.
Mum will keep you all posted.

Wednesday 13 September 2023

Just relaxing and pondering surgery


      Julie: I was at the Vet today.   
    I have some lumps on my belly . 
     Next week I will have them removed.
  I had some before that were removed.
 Hopefully this procedure will go well. 

I will spend lots of time here as I love getting
brushed and mum likes brushing me.

I also like sleeping in Mum's bed. MOL!
Even when she makes the bed I like to sleep on the covers .

Yup! I am a happy cat!

Monday 11 September 2023

Julie rules the roost!

Julie: This weekend, I had a good time hanging out
with mum. Here we are enjoying the day on
the porch.

Here I am in the living room.
This is where I get lots of brushings.
I like to nap here too, sometimes.

I am hanging out on the bed.
I think mum wants to make the bed, but she
will have to wait until I am ready to move.
Everything is done at the  convenience of the cat. 


Friday 8 September 2023

Just Hanging Out!

Julie: I like being on the porch.
Sometimes I go outside  and mum watches me.
Often, I just like to sit and look out the open door.
I can get scritches as well which is so nice!

I also like sitting on the bed.
                                                     I am waiting for mum to join me.
We might watch the TV, read or Mum can give
me belly rubs. I love those!

No matter what we do. it will be fun as long as we are together!

Monday 4 September 2023

Enjoying sunshine and life!

Julie: It was nice and sunny so I got to spend some time 

I enjoyed my time outside for a while.

When it got dark, mum and I worked
on the blog. I dictated from a cozy spot.

Mum has this neat cross stitch picture.
She thinks it would be cool to have 5 black cats.
I say that I am all she needs!


Mum agrees, but still thinks it would be cool.
Dream on Mum!
I am all you need!!!

Friday 1 September 2023

Julie enjoying the sunshine!

Julie: Woo Hoo!!
My stitches are out!
Now I can relax knowing I do not have to go 
to the Vet for a good while!

 That means I get to go outside and enjoy
the sun. Maybe some tasty grass too. Mum still
needs to cut it though!!!

I am very happy and I do enjoy the sun on my
panther furs!

I also get to snoopervise Mum as she does my blog.
Sometimes you need to watch your human. MOL!

OK! Time to go back outside to the sunshine!

My Adventure

Julie: Hi friends! Guess what?
I had an adventure!
Mum and I went to spend a week with one of Mum's sisters.
She has 3 sisters. This sister lives in Kentville.
I was a bit nervous but we had our own room.
There were two other cats there, but we did not meet.
I did not mind that. While it was quiet for me, 
I enjoyed having mum nearby.

 While the week was good, I do enjoy being back in my own home.
Tuesday I get my stitches out. WooHoo!!
It will be cloudy too so maybe I can get some grass.
Today is rainy  with  rumbles!

Friday 18 August 2023

Julie's Surgery

Julie: I have been to the Vet lately for some surgery.
I had some lumps on my belly. I had some before.

I am recovering, but still feel like staying quiet.
I will be happy when my stiches come out so 
I can feel well and get back to the things I like to do.

Things like sitting outdoors. I really like that.
Good thing there is still lots of Summer days for
me to enjoy. I hope to get back to normal soon.
Maybe nest week when my stitches come out!


Thursday 17 August 2023

Black cat Appreciation day with Julie

Julie: Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day!!!!!!


Monday 14 August 2023

Late afternoon on the porch

Julie: It was pretty cloudy yesterday.
I was out for a bit, but decided that sitting
on the porch was more comfy.

It was pretty nice. Mum sat with me and did some
reading. I hope she finishes soon as it is
getting close to suppertime.

 I would not want to have to remind her with a claw 
or anything ya know! MOL!!!!

Friday 11 August 2023

Julie loves the Sun!

Julie: Sunny days are purrfect for napping in the sun!
It feels SO good!

When it gets too hot, I cam go into the porch.
It is a bit cooler and has a comfy couch.

One of these days Mum needs to get pictures of me doing 
something other than sleeping.
She can be a bit lazy like me.
We blame it on the sunny days!

Monday 7 August 2023

Julie and the Moon

Julie: Just relaxing in the sun and getting my black furs hot!
Don't worry, I go inside if it is too hot..
Mum makes sure of that.

The full moon was shining last night.

It is pretty impressive.

 Almost as impressive as me. MOL!!!!
