Total Eclipse of the Clock

"I need a second hand!"

"Oh, you mean a watch with a second hand?" 

" I have two.  I'll get one."

Let's "see," 

I don't think there are a lot of watches anymore that have second hands?

Are there watches anymore?  Who wears them?  When I put a watch on, it stops running.

The phone (or wrist watch/phone) carries the time and everything else.  Digital seconds tick away on the stove timers, microwaves, and equipment everywhere. 

Second Hand
Is a great idea to donate usable items to others.  I also love items loaned or given by friends from charity shops or personal collections.  Energy is Present.

"We got a second hand Tomcat at the Lighthouse Attic."  Tom's owner met us outside the store.  Tom looked so forlorn yet he let us hold him.  He was one year old at the time and had many previous homes, but we knew he was a keeper.  Now Tom is fifteen!

Tom Terrific

Second Hands, Second Chances are everywhere.

Cat Tree Time Share

Orange Claims Ownership

Until Ruff Takes Over

Orange is a reptilian muscular athlete:  full speed ahead.

Ruff likes to hang out of both sides of the cat tree. 

Ruff is now three times the size of his best buddy, Orange.  They enjoy grooming each other with an occasional hiss.

Ruff carries his feathery tail high up over his back, like a Norwegian Elk Hound.

"Ruff Has Plumage" 


Tail from the Dark Side~ 

Telltale Tail 

"I want to be the dominant cat...."

* Enter Yon and Mu, in comic book form, to bring up close and personal a "Tale of Two Kitties." 

Yon is quite like Orange, short haired and over active, with that mixed look of wonder and anxiety in his eyes.  Mu is an adorable Norwegian Forest Cat, wide eyed, gentle, and observant.

What could our pets tell us about their personal stories?

* Yon and Mu. Junji Ito's Cat Diary...."Junji Ito presents a series of hissterical [sic] tales chronicling his real-life trials of becoming a [reluctant] cat owner....Yon, a ghastly looking family cat and Mu, an adorable Norwegian Forest cat," use their persuasive "odd cuteness" to win hearts of readers everywhere and cat owners applaud with a yes and smile. 

"The most striking appeal of Junji Ito's work is his artwork."  Junji's drawings nail the tale of two feline friends and their humans.  Kodansha Comics
