The Daily Cuppa

I like to post pictures of our cat, Mr. Percy, on my Instagram page, especially on Saturday, AKA Caturday.

He’s not as active as he used to be. Well, to be honest, he wasn’t ever the most active cat in the world, but I don’t judge.

He’s a cuddle bug, especially in the evening when I’m curled up on the couch watching a movie.

I like to take pictures of him from time to time. Okay, every day. Throughout the day.

The below photo is his most recent. I feel a touch of resentment mixed with irritation with the inner thought, “Back away, lady. Back. Away.”




Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
