And Now for Something Completely Different

Evidently the Human heeded my call for at least a temporary cease-click with the Flashy Box, because today we have a picture story in which *I*, Spitty the Kitty, do not appear.

It seems that on the block where Wally, Aggie, Madie Mitten Kitten and their Dad reside, something kind of wonderful has sprung up in recent months.

The Humans who live in a house near the street-car cut decided a while back to designate a tree in front of their home as a Gratitude Tree. They encircled the tree with chicken wire and provided tags on which their neighbors and other passers by could write something for which they were grateful and then tie the tag to the tree.

That proved so popular, they added a second tree, a Wishing Tree:
This one brought a little tear to the Human's eye (and it even gave me a tiny lump in my throat). We made it big so you could read it, but in case you can't, it says: "I wish for QueQue, Pele + Zach to all find each other over the rainbow bridge...see you someday again © Papa + Mom"

I can't summon up a single snarky comment. I must be going soft, do you think?
But don't fret none. I'll be back to myself by the weekend.

  2. I think I might weep. But don't tell anyone.

  3. Relax Spitty - you're not going soft. Matters related to the Rainbow Bridge always warrant sincerity and consideration. Sarcasm is wildly inappropriate, so you've demonstrated excellent judgement - just as we would expect from a king.

  4. Those trees are amazing, wonderful, and humbling!

    In other news, Mommy says she can make an excellent Pope's Mitre out of a starched white dinner napkin...photos forthcoming in April!

  5. Wow. And it's such a San Francisco thing. Humans in L.A. would never put themselves out there like that... not even in the arty districts near where we live.

  11. What a wonderful idea those humans had. And Spitty, if you're going soft, so are we, because we also had a tear or two going on...

    Hugs!

  13. Nah, you're not going soft, Spitty. We know there's a little softness in you. Those trees are really great. Thanks for sharing.

  17. It's nice to see your softer side Spitty. We're sure it will be a brief change of pace & you will be back to your old snarky self soon. The trees must be quite a local attraction. If only humans were in this frame of mind more often. We found ourselves a bit weepy over the whole concept...., but then we got a grip on ourselves and returned to the real world. It was kind of your human to share this with us & good that you did not have to pose for the flashy box today. Win-win Spitty.

Leave me a meow or a hiss; I don't mind a hiss or two. . . or even a bitey.
