  1. The cat has an angel on her shoulders – you! Thank God you were able to nurse her back to health. Great photo of the eagles, too. I didn’t know that they had different colors as juvenile.

    1. As I said in this post I did not know either until another photographer informed me of the fact that juvenile Eagles don’t get a white head until 4 years of age. Absolutely fascinating! As for the angel bit… Thank you, Rob. I really put everything I have into helping these cats. May you have a glorious day today! 💕😎💕

  2. You’ve got a good heart in nursing your cats back to health. I hope Max starts eating again soon.
    You’ve been incredibly busy it seems. I guess the photography is your “Me” time. You’ve earned it.

    1. Thank you for your well wishes for my Max. Oh yes I have been busy. Just transplanting all the flowers and plants and shrubs that I have planted was enough without the complications thrown in with what is going on with my cats. And yes photography is ME time. My camera has saved my sanity many many times. Thank you for stopping by and commenting. Both mean so much to me. Bless you! 💕🌹💕

    1. Thank you, David. Bless you for your kindness in return to me! I have outlived so many, too many, of those I LOVE. It does not get easier by any means. I am paying a high price for my freedom so that I can dedicate the time that I would like to my photography. Don’t get me wrong, these cats are my family and I mean that in every way possible. Much Love to you this day! 💕🌹💕

  3. I hope you figure out why Max has stopped eating. My wife goes to great lengths to get our little cat to eat (she has issues picking food up) and that can take a toll on you.

    The wildlife photography is coming along nicely, Amy. You’re getting some great shots.

    1. I am not about to stand by and do nothing only to watch our Max starve to death, Dan. That is not even in the picture. Yes I do understand what I am doing has a huge toll. It is time consuming, emotionally draining, and it severely limits your time. Butt because I Love these guys so much, I will do just about anything to help them. As will your wife, God bless her! As for my Wildlife photography, yes I am making strides but I do have limitations with the camera I do have now. I really am looking forward to finding out what Canon comes out with this coming September in order to make the right decision in buying a bigger and better and more powerful camera. In the meantime, I practice with what I have. If it is hot where you are like it is here, please stay cool! Have a great day! 💕😎💕

  4. You take care of your kids and you get taken care of in return – with awesome photo ops!! Lovely photos and so glad to hear your kids, although they have their challenges, are so blessed to be getting through them with your help. Will send a special prayer for Max – that he starts eating again on his own. Much love to you!! Donna

    1. I’ve got the goosebumps, Donna. I told my sister just a few days ago that I am being given Gifts by Mother for all I am doing for Her Kingdom. I am doing everything I know of to find out why Max is not eating and I will keep feeding him no matter what. I am SO relieved Bella is on the mend …. her story is soooooo scary! I thank you from the bottom of my Heart for your prayers for Max. Bless you!! BIG (((HUGS))) 💝💝💝

    1. THANK YOU, JOHN! I am learning so much so rapidly it seems. You have encouraged me greatly because I have not spoken of the obstacles that lay be for me from even getting to the park. Besides my cats that is. I hope you are staying cool if it’s extremely hot like it is here. Have a great day today! 💕🌹💕

  5. Pets are both a blessing and a bane especially when they get sick. I am almost at that point that everytime I take one of mine to the vets even for the most trivial of things, will I walk out with it in my arms or in a box. But, we can’t give up on them and I commend you for your efforts. Just a thought but have you checked Max’s teeth? Great pics.

    1. When we brought Max in for a complete blood work-up, the veterinarian gave him a complete check up. His teeth are fine. Neither our veterinarian or myself understand why Max has lost weight and has stopped eating. This is why I have opted I am doing my own research searching for a product, a quality product, that will address whatever is not going right with Max’s body. I have so many stories that I could actually tell regarding the extent to what I have done regarding these animals that I so dearly love. I thank you for taking the time to read and for commenting. Both means so much to me! 💕🌹💕

  6. So tough when our friends get sick, especially when we have to make decisions based on intuition. There’s always a doubt whether we’ve done the right thing. Hope things calm down for you a little and you can spend a day with just you and your camera.

    1. Thank you, J. D., for such a kind comment. Doing what I do is extremely difficult and it is not everyday I talk about this. Things are calming down, thank goodness. Now I have to wait until the temps drop a bit to got back to this park. From what I see, temps will be a bit lower tomorrow. I appreciate so much the time you gave to read my post and then to leave this comment. Bless you! 💝

  7. My heart goes to you and your husband for putting the best efforts to those lovely cats in need for help. Those are difficult situations you and your husband had to deal with. They can’t tell you what was going on with them, you have to take the best shot to help out.. Great work you did and they are so adorable. Oh includes all other cute ones in this post too.

    1. Thank you, YellowCable. Over the years hubby has the one who has been the researcher. Of late, it has been me as I continue to look for quality products to assist our cats. It’s so darn scary when medicine consistently does not have the answers we need to address problems. This is our family who we Love so very much. Bless you for leaving such a beautiful comment. 💝

    1. Thank you, dearest Prag. You would do the same if it were your children who medicine had no answers for, yet you can see with your very eyes there is something very wrong. As I told my sister, Mother is allowing me these magnificent events, blessing me for helping those of Her Kingdom as I do. I am so honored, and so blown away. That Eagle shot was one in a million chance. I had to have been in the right place at the right time and looking in the exact direction where that Eagle was. I’m still in awe by what happened. Much Love to you!! 💝

  8. Phew, no wonder you fell into bed and crashed Amy, that is peak hour traffic big time ❤
    But I am glad to hear your babies are ok after everything that has happened, that on its own would take it out of you 😀
    And to top it off you were blessed with those lovely shots, especially the eagle. I think God was giving you something for all of your hard work 😀 ❤

    1. Mark, just a few short days ago, I heard that small voice that I recognized immediately which told me that because of all I do for the Kingdom of Mother Nature, what I am experiencing with my photography is my Gift. I am being blessed beyond measure as God’s way of saying thank you to me. Just thinking about that Eagle shot has me still in such great all because I know that I know it is a one-in-a-million chance that I was in the right place at the right time with my eyes looking in the right direction in order to have captured this bird. Thank you for coming along with me on this journey that is taking me places that I did not even dream of. Much Love to you this day, dear friend! 💕🌹💕

  9. I’m exhausted just reading about your kitty journey…It is very difficult to tend to the sick when one is racked with worry as well…I can see why you slept so long! Hope all the four leggeds are well now and feeling better and you are getting rested up. Great pix AR…Really wonderful shots. Loved the bunny. It reminded me of Bizzy the bunny I fed all last winter. Such delightful creatures. Thanks for sharing. Be peaceful my friend…Hugs..VK ❤

    1. Bless you, dearest friend, for your empathy and Love you have shown me through your words. You have no idea how terrified I was with Bella as I rapidly thought out what to do and what not to do. I knew if I again ran with her to our Vet exposing her to testing and whatnot, the stress would immediately make her sicker. I stuck immediately to what my Inner Guidance was telling me and worked so hard to bring her breathing back to normal. Oh, VK! Tears sting my eyes because today she is eating, she is comfortable and happy, and she is breathing normally. I am still getting my rest because this stuff kicks the stuffing out of me. Bless you for caring! And thank you for seeing the magnificent Gifts Mother is giving to me. That Eagle shot alone is a one in a million shot. Right timing, right place, and my eyes in the exact right direction. I am still pinching myself. Much Love to you!! 💝💝💝

      1. When I lived in Maryland I had a cat(still have him)who had a mysterious,raging fever that would not break and I spent two weeks in the vets offices trying to keep him alive. The vet was sure Elliott was going to die. I went home for the night leaving him behind and got on the Internet and searched. I read about west nile fever in cats, not common but it does happen and so the next day I mentioned it to the Vet. He said cats don’t get it and I said oh yes they do. He was so humble and disappeared into his office for 15 min and looked it up. He came back and said you are absolutely right. Lets try this new antibiotic on Elliott. If he’s not better tomorrow we’ll think about letting him go. So he got his new shot of antibiotics and off we went. Me praying this cat would get better and not have to die. Once home and several hours later he was out on the screened porch making mouth noises at the birds, drooling in anticipation of catching one. Elliott was BACK! Scary stuff when the babies begin aging…They are us….Keep up the good doctoring AR! VK ❤

    1. Joey, the thing with Max he is only 12 and all his blood tests and physical exam show nothing is wrong. Yet he has stopped eating or picks at food. Why? That is my mega question and so I search and buy products hoping hoping that something helps him. Why doesn’t medicine have the answers? I’ve been down this road so many times ending up so exhausted and so disgusted with the limitations medicine has to offer us. Saying goodbye to someone I love with all my Heart and not knowing why is a gut twister!
      And yes the nightmare with Bella. I drop to my knees with such gratitude that my Guidance did not steer me wrong. Terrifying journey!
      And a huge thank you for your compliments on my photography. My Wildlife Journey is SO exciting! Bless you for stopping by and leaving such a beautiful comment. Thank you!! 💝

    1. Thank you for your prayers, Michele. Bella has pulled through completely. Max however, has begun the decline slide. I’ve been in tears over this all morning long. To not know is what is so hard and not to be able to do anything to get him turned around is even harder. I have a suspicion as to the cause. All I can do is take care of him until he tells me he has had enough. This never gets easier. Ever. Much Love to you! 💝

    1. Thank you, Holly. Twelve years old for a cat is not old and to be witnessing the slide down without answers or help from medicine, is so very hard. I’ve known Max since the day he was born, under one of our trees. These sorts of situations make you realize how precious our lives truly are. You have a great day too!! 💝

    1. Our cats are our family, Chris. We love them with all of our Hearts. Max is still not looking good but the products I ordered with hope they would help him, came today and so I gave them. I don’t know if it is a fluke, but he began to look better and showed great interest in food about 1 hour after I gave them to him. I will not give up on this guy! Medicine has no answers but I continue to research, to search high and low, and to listen to my Inner Guidance. Bella has made a complete comeback! You have no idea how relieved I am! Bless you for your kind words. They mean so much to me! BIG HUGS!!! 💝💝💝
