A Bengal Cat or a Marbled Tabby? – Photo Story

I saw this cat that looked like a Bengal cat, but I wasn’t sure.  It could be a marbled tabby cat… I couldn’t tell the difference.

So I did what every crazy cat lady would do, asked the cat.

Excuse me, Mr. Cat. Are you a Bengal or a marbled tabby?

Mr. Cat said “Don’t bother me. Go away.”

Then the cat got up and crossed the street.

I followed but he stopped and said “Stop following me!”

Of course I lied and said I wasn’t.. I was going the same way.

The cat went through a fenced in garden, but I could still see him.

Then the cat stopped. So I asked again.
“Are you a Bengal cat or just a marbled tabby.”

He just turned his head and didn’t answer. I think he felt insulted.

“Please,” I said, “I just need to know.”

A Bengal Cat or Marbled Tabby?

 

The cat got up and said, “It’s time for my dinner. I’m going home.”

A Bengal Cat or Marbled Tabby?

 

Then he stopped and said, “Please stop stalking me or I’ll tell my human you are trying to kidnap me.”

OMG!

What a mean cat I thought…

I am still not sure if the mean cat was a Bengal or a marbled tabby.

… but I know where he lives.

 

What Happened to the Pigeons?

On my way to the bakery this afternoon, I saw a lot of pigeons perked on the power line wires.  I had never seen pigeons closely perched side by side before and I wondered what was going on.

I should have taken a quick shot… but I thought I should go quickly to the bakery and come back.  Bad move.  When I came back, most of the pigeons perched on the power line wires were gone.  Only a few left.

What happened to the pigeons?

What da heck happened?  Where did they go?

I found out that the pigeons were waiting for dinner.  A guy comes everyday at around 5 o’clock in the afternoon and feeds the birds.  He said at first there were only four pigeons.  But they must have told a friend and the friend told its family and friends and now there are so many of them.


Guess what that guy had in the brown paper bag?

April is Daffodil Month in Canada

April is Daffodil Month in Canada

April is Daffodil Month, which is the Canadian Cancer Society ‘s national fundraising campaign for the fight against cancer.

The daffodil is a symbol of strength and courage in the fight against cancer.

In my Toronto neighbourhood, there is a patch of daffodils in our local park to remember those who passed because of cancer, to celebrate cancer survivors, and to give courage to those who are fighting cancer at present.

Cancer can be beaten.

She is always there
Protecting me from evil
My guardian angel.

Fiery Sky

Fiery Sky – Toronto, April 12, 2016

We seldom see fiery sky here in Toronto.  So, imagine how excited I was to see this on my way home yesterday.  Dusk could not have been more beautiful… to me.

 

Isn’t it supposed to be spring? – A Poem

Snowy Day in April, photo by mzrosie

Looking out the window
and what do I see?
A beautiful snowy winter day
But isn’t it supposed to be spring?
When flowers bloom
and robins sing?
When we put on rubber boots
and play in the pouring rain?
Mother Nature, what’s happening?
Don’t wanna be disrespecful
’cause ’tis a beautiful day after all
But calendar shows it is April
It is supposed to be spring.
Well, isn’t it?

I took that picture this morning from my balcony.  Snow coming down in April.  It didn’t last long, for today anyway.  More snow in the forecast here in Toronto.  Lucky us!
