Welcome to my new blog!

I already run a successful blog: www.leavingcairo.blogspot.com - a blog about an English girl the wrong side of 35 who finds herself settling (for the moment) in the beautiful country of Greece.
But there's more to Bex, the author - hence "The this 'n' that blog".
Documented here will be every day ramblings and observations - enjoy!

Five Minute Friday - Stretch, Cat Yoga

It's that time again!  Write for five minutes, unedited about a topic.  Today's subject is - STRETCH.

One, two, three...GO!

Er, God, this is a difficult one today!  What to write about?  Well,  I have an obsession with cats and can waste many hours just watching them.  One that I looked after recently, Branston, was found in Athens Airport and I looked after him until he was re-homed permanently.
You can see him here, enjoying a Stretch (and Yawn as it turns out).

Cats are great eh?  Very versatile and can STRETCH into all sorts of places.  I often wonder if there's a cat equivalent to yoga - some of their 'poses' look like Yoga ones.

We have a rescue cat too, but she did the choosing by arriving on our terrace 12 years ago. She brought four kittens with her but we re-homed those - there are limits!

Rescue cats are the best :0) My flatmate went and rescued a tiny kitten from a car engine 2 nights ago, so that's another addition to the 'family' of cats. We already have three!

I love cats! I've had so many strays...whew.


Bex said...

Me too Teresa. They're very intelligent and loving :0) My current one was knocked over twice by cars, had bones re-connected before she came to me! Read about her on my other blog.

Cats have no need for yoga. Nor would we, were we more like them.

In preparation for a trip to Rome I ran across this couplet:

"So Tiberias might had sat,
Had Tiberias been a cat."

I suppose you could say, DEK, that cats are the epitomy of yoga? I spend many an hour just watching mine. She fascinates me. Yes, us humans can learn a lot from cats and, indeed, animals - and not just in the exercise stakes either. Many a time I've marvelled at the intelligence of my cat.
