Did you know that June is Adopt-a-Cat Month? Well, that’s one holiday our family celebrated early this year. The forlorn feline featured above has been flopping on our front porch since February, trying her best to trip us up every time we step outside.
She showed up starving, so my sneaky son started surreptitiously setting out saucers of milk for her. When I protested that I didn’t want to share cereal bowls with a stray, he bought a set of stainless pet dishes.
Next came a big bag of cat food. Then a plush, padded pet bed. Then an official name: Tinea (the technical term for ringworm). Then a leather, belled collar with my daughter’s phone number engraved on it, in case the cat gets lost, which she did after hitching a ride under the hood of my unsuspecting daughter’s car then scurrying out after she’d driven miles from home.
Three days later, Tinea was back on our porch. So I guess she’s here to stay. Good thing she’s grown on me. I’ve never really thought of myself as a “cat person,” but this one is pretty sweet. So I’m sharing the following link list in her honor.

Something Special for Nature Lovers
If you are an animal lover, I’d love for you to check out my devotional journal, All Things Bright and Beautiful.
It designed to encourage you to observe and explore the world around you, recording your thoughts and impressions of your physical surroundings while gleaning spiritual truths, as well.
There’s no right or wrong way to use this journal. You can write in it, draw in it, paste pictures or mementos into it — you are only limited by your own imagination. I hope you’ll have fun learning about the flora and fauna in your neck of the woods and will enjoy having a pretty place to record what you learn, to review later!
