Posts tagged ‘Cats’



Lots of fun for kids and perfect for deterring wayward cats, tempted to scratch where they shouldn’t, climb where they’re not allowed and generally misbehave 🙂



Yesterday morning I heard a roaring sound followed by a huge crash and a herd of kangaroos racing away. These huge branches had fallen on a perfectly still morning. Every night the tree, in our neighbour’s property, is a roost for  local birdlife, mostly White Cockatoos and Corellas but I’ve also seen many other varieties there, including my favourite Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoos passing through.

Bailey used to love playing there and catching rabbits a couple of years ago but as the area became more populated with a few more houses and residents, I worried about a ginger cat with a long fluffy tail being mistaken for a fox, so much to his disappointment he became a solely inside cat.

I’m glad he wasn’t there when the branches came down!

Have you ever been in the wrong place at the wrong time or the right place at the right time? Great idea for a story or poem – fact or fiction 🙂

Only 752 words left to reach my NaNo WriMo target…think I’ll have a cup of coffee and bring it home 🙂

Camera Shy


This treasured pet was a bit camera shy . . . but don’t be shy about sending in your pet stories (see previous posts). Traditional pets like cats and dogs, or the more unusual 🙂

Ginger Cats


Don’t be fooled . . . my daughter’s ginger cat, Turner, is probably not getting ready for a snooze! He’s most likely waiting to pounce!

It must be the ginger fur, because he shares the ‘attack’ gene with my Bailey 😦

But . . . whether your cat is an attacker or a placid couch potato, send in your pet stories and poems. I’ll be featuring PETS in an upcoming issue. Work needs to be in hard copy and sent to Positive Words magazine, PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523, Victoria, Australia.


Pet stories and poems wanted


Or cat, guinea pig, chicken, duck, snake, rock . . . whatever your preferred pet.

For an upcoming issue I will be featuring ‘pet’ stories, poems and articles. Good pets, bad pets, cheeky pets, lost, found, past, present etc

Submissions need be in hard copy (email copies requested on acceptance). Stories and articles should be up to 1000 words and poems up to one page. Send to PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523, Victoria, Australia.  Or, email me for further information

Send them in asap 🙂

Happy Birthday Jasper!


Today’s prompt…

My Mini-Dachshund Jasper is 13 today! Although he’s going grey, he is going well for an older dog. He runs as fast as he did years ago, just shorter bursts 🙂  And . . . mention the F (food) word and Jasper would win any Doggy-Olympics race 🙂 Happy Birthday, Jasper!

Pet-owning writers love to write about their pets and over the years Positive Words has featured many poems and stories about dogs, cats and other favourites. Many were tributes to a loved family member who had passed, some told of heroic deeds and others about the eccentricities that brighten our days. Pet stories are always very popular as most fellow pet owners can identify with the sad, the glad and, sometimes, the bad! I hope today’s post inspired you to write about your pets, past or present and please send them in to share with Positive Words readers. Submissions are always welcome and each published contributor receives a complimentary copy of the issue but submissions MUST be in hard copy first, with email copies requested on acceptance for longer pieces. Post to The Editor – Positive Words magazine, Sandra James, PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523, Victoria, Australia.
