Dairy Cats in Spring

cat1 (copy)

The spring has been a time for relaxing and enjoying the warmer weather before the attack of hellish flies that arrive in summer. Birds twitter a merry tune of new beginnings, I sit on the deck and watch life carry on. With my coffee in hand, a cow walks by and settles under the shade of an old gum chewing happily. I love to share moments on the dairy farm, precious minutes of gratitude. A deep Breath of fresh country air, I smile and sometimes wish I was a cat, lazing about soaking up the morning rays.

Life is beautiful and simple if you let it be. How do you relax?

About Minuscule Moments

Everybody has a DREAM. Today is the first day of the rest of my writing life. Its a lonely world out there when you are learning the craft. This year, as the same as last year, I want to finish my first children's picture book. I have learn't many wonderful lessons on this journey. You are never too old to learn.

    I love the photo of the cow and the cat looking at each other. Great photos. 🙂

  3. I love this post, Kath. Beautiful photos. And the black and white kitty looks a lot like my Vivian!

    • Jennifer I knew you would enjoy my kitty shots her name is Patchy she was the first cat we brought home from the dairy, she is a funny girl with a high class attitude to life, she expects nothing but the best bed, food and attention, because she arrived first it is her domain and all cats must bow down to her lol.

      • She sounds like a real character alright. Don’t you love their unique little personalities?

        • I have three cats who all came from the same dairy over different times, yet they cannot get along and there is a real pecking order and my baby cat Boo gets treated very ordinary by the other two. I am going to write a novel for kids called Catastrophic and my Boo will be the hero when a bushfire comes to the farm and the end up back at the dairy and discover who they all really are. Cats can do that to you, bring out a story because they are all so unique and the best books my daughter has read SHE SAYS are the Warrior Cat series, so one day they will be in ink…with all there gorgeous cat traits Jennifer

  4. Wonderful. I bet your books will be a delight. 🙂

    Nothing like getting back to nature to calm the system. I love to look in my pond and see what is happening in their world. Just take life sloooooowwwwww.

  6. You have coffee drinking cows? Where is the picture of the cow who walks by with a coffee in hand? 😉
    I like to sit on the rocks and watch the sea, or hiking in the mountains near our house. Otherwise doing laundry is very relaxing. Really, I kid you not.
    The cat pictures are lovely. They look like twins. I like cats and cows and your stories, as wacky as this one is.

  7. Patricia thanks I tried to fix the sentence but maybe my cows do drink coffee, they do in Gary Larson’s world (my favourite cartoonist), so why not mine. Wacky will have to do this week, next week I will have a cat wearing a viking helmet???

    I wonder if the cat and cow are trying to figure each other out because they have similar black and white patches. 🙂 I always wish to be a dog or a cat whenever I see them lazing around in the sunshine. Reading usually relaxes me or puts me to sleep, especially when there’s sunshine involved. Happy Spring!

  9. Gorgeous, Kath (as usual). The pictures are a bit like Where’s Waldo–where’s the cat in the first cow picture? I just know s/he’s somewhere…

  10. Hey Jacqui I have to admit this post was a filler, as I gather my strengths to participate in Novembers writing safari. Patchy the cat is never far from mischief and yesterday dug up the garden to catch a mouse.

  11. Hey Kath, I just noticed I wasn’t following you since this last post, I think. Totally an accident! Must have touched the screen in the wrong place. Following again. 🙂

  12. What a glorious post. Your narrative and the photographs seem to dance together in the moment. Indeed the very awareness of such moments is a blessing for which we need to be grateful.
