Tabitha Grazes without Getting Her Paws Wet


Tabitha has a morning routine she follows each day without fail. She goes outside with me when I take my mom her morning coffee and open the curtains on the sliding glass door. She loves to eat a bite or two of some tough grass that grows on the edge of the deck. She hates to get her paws wet from the morning dew or overnight rain so she hangs over.

She is giving me a silent message to leave this spot long the next time I mow. Maybe I will and maybe I won't. When it's short all over she is forced to touch the ground. She avoids all outdoor exercise as you can see from her round form. When we go for a walk to the way back I usually have to carry her down there so she has to walk back.
People are always asking about Tabitha. I usually have on my pajamas when we go through this early morning ritual but today I had on my jeans and my iPhone was in my pocket.

Cats are one of my favorite animals and I'd love to have one. But, I'm afraid my dogs wouldn't. Tabitha, girth and all, is a pretty cat.

Clever Tabitha, taking her 'daily fibre' which aids her digestion.
She is a beautiful, healthy tabby girl :)

Thanks for your wonderful blog. Does Tabitha belong to you (or Mom)?

I am so glad you talked about Tabitha. I love dogs and enjoy the visits from Piggy, but I have cats. I knew you were a cat person

Great blog. I really enjoy it. A fellow iPhone advocate,
