Breathe: an Inspiration Avenue Challenge

This week's challenge at Inspiration Avenue was issued by Robin. She wanted us to breathe. I don't know how to show breathing, other than


Bleubeard. He's not hissing, but panting from the summer heat. I remember our long, hot summer, and this was an example of him staying outside too long with me. So, it looks like we both had to breathe deeply that day.

I had trouble with this challenge and almost didn't post anything. But, since I didn't participate last week, and won't be able to next week, unless I get to a computer, I simply couldn't miss three weeks in a row.

How do you interpret the word "breathe?" I'm sure your ideas are better than mine, so feel free to join the IA challenge this week.

If you have time would you post, maybe, just one of the "stash" packets.....to tide me over until I get mine! I'm such a baby, my curiosity is killing me!!!

One of our cats will stay outside in the hot, hot weather because she doesn't like the a/c, too cool for her.

That is a most fascinating photo of Bleubeard - thought I first he swallowed Wendy - oh no, ok i am trying to breathe - in and out - in and out - breathing in the good and exhaling the bad, wow, already feel better. Take care E and enjoy yourself next week. Hugs

It always makes me superly sad when cats pant.
I tend to assume that they are dying and overreact.

That is because I like cats better than most people.
People do terrible things. Cats just trip you on stairs and stuff.

Bleubeard is saying it all for me today. We are snowed in awaiting a plow to get us out of our driveway. I'm trying to breathe but feel much like Bleubeard in the photo.

Hugs to you - Marilyn xxoo

purrfect!
Oh I am feeling sad about my cat MAX. He has reached a ripe old age and recently has lost so much weight I can feel his bones jutting out. The vet told me last Oct when he had his teeth done he has kidney disease and these would be signs of kidney failure. What do to without my constant companion. I just pray for a bit more time with him.
