Two Shoes Tuesday

I am taking a deep breath...getting in position...ready to dive in...and GO.

I am using the link to Two Shoes Tuesday with a weekly prompt to jumpstart my writing.  Todays prompt is to use the word BIG or WAITING.  The other posts I've seen have a photo image included and I do believe this helps create the inspiration, so this how I will approach this.

Here goes:   Waiting

After a lengthy self imposed sabbatical of no pets in our house we indulged in adding two furry traveling companions to our motorhome in which we live.

Each week I waited and monitored their behavior, looking for signs that they were adjusting, affirming that they loved us.

And each week brought new validations, calming my inner fears as they played more, ate more, asked to be cuddled.

But the ultimate proof was when Gracie, the female who could benefit from some kitty ritlin, chose to take a nap in the middle of the floor.  On her back.  In perfect trust and contentment.

I need wait no more.  My house is now a home.



  1. You did an excellent job on your Two Shoes Tuesday composition! I love the photo you chose, and you are absolutely right, a house of any kind without a cat is not a home! We do wait for each new addition to adjust and find their own role and relationships. They are fascinating. This one obviously has it all figured out! :-) Thank you so much for joining us at Two Shoes Tuesday, this was a fun read!:-)

  2. Hi, I absolutely love cats so this post is one I loved and oo and awed at. The cats are so cute. :)

  3. nothing is surer than an animal about whether a human can be trusted.
    You are right..the cats have found a home and they know it.
    Just don't let hubby step on it while making a quick trip to the john.

  4. It is such a worry and waiting game, hoping the new pets feel comfortable and adjust well to the new environment. This one certainly has! No doubt you will enjoy many happy times with him.

  5. Awwww...too cute. I love it when they know they are home and you can tell too. You did.

    Have a terrific day. ☺

  6. I am so happy you jumped in and joined our writing group! I know the story of your FurKids, but hearing it again was wonderful! I hope you continue with us! Hugs!

  7. I just love your photo of Gracie at rest. You're absolutely right. When your fur babies are this comfortable, they are at home. You all have a wonderful night. Hugs, Edna B.
