Here Kitty, Kitty 10

My Take

DiVoran Lites

  Thea’s Millet We looked on YouTubeto try and figure out the best way to cut Thea’s claws. My neighbor later told me she has never cut any cat’s claws, but the word is that they can grow back into the paws, so I’ve always cut them. The best video I found on the subject was a vet who shows how to squish the cat and cut her nails. We put a towel over her and Bill pressed down so she couldn’t move and I cut the claws. It worked well, except that I had planned to add treats to her ordeal so it wouldn’t be so scary for her. The Vet said not to worry about hurting the cat so we didn’t…worry or hurt.   I guess Thea gets a bit anxious to be allowed into the kitchen in the morning. She has been not scratching on the door itself, but on the edge of the carpet that covers the step into the kitchen. This is the third time we’ve tried to keep her from doing it, but it’s not working so far.  
  She isn’t being mean or bad and neither are we. She’s just being a cat and we’re only human. We went to the big store today and walked around looking for ideas to keep her from ruining the step. Something clicked in Bill’s mind and he came up with the solution. He got aluminum strips that you use on a roof overhang and cut and fit them to the step. We put up alerts, plus we have handles, put in by “Aging Matters,” to help us remain safe. Kitty hasn’t tried anything more, she’s a fast learner.     Thanks for your attention and your comments throughout our adventure with the lovely Thea. You may hear from her again someday. Until then, here’s the dear creature sitting for a silly picture to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Next week’s blog will be about my return to second-grade. See you then    
  Meow.       Author, Poet and Artist DiVoran has been writing for most of her life. Her first attempt at a story was when she was seven years old and her mother got a new typewriter. DiVoran got to use it and when her dad saw her writing he asked what she was writing about. DiVoran answered that she was writing the story of her life. Her dad’s only comment was, “Well, it’s going to be a very short story.” After most of a lifetime of writing and helping other writers, DiVoran finally launched her own dream which was to write a novel of her own. She now has her Florida Springs trilogy and her novel, a Christian Western Romance, Go West available on Amazon. When speaking about her road to publication, she gives thanks to the Lord for all the people who helped her grow and learn.  She says, “I could never have done it by myself, but when I got going everything fell beautifully into place, and I was glad I had started on my dream.”
