No Birdie TV #SundaySelfie

Happy Sunday­čś╗

Looking out of the window and wondering where all the birdies have gone.


1. Only someone with a ____________ would understand _________________. 
2. I just started ___________________________. 
3. I find it hard to believe that _________. 
4. I should probably _________.


1. Only someone with a phobia would understand the phobias that I have. There is no easy cure. Same goes for anxiety and depression. Only someone going through mental health issued can truly understand that you can't just snap out of something like that.
2. I just started covering myself with the duvet at night because the nights are once again cool and nice! It also means that Athena now sleeps leaning against me, which I love.  
3. I find it hard to believe that I'm now in my 50s. 
4. I should probably try to write more books but I just don't feel the drive or inspiration anymore. I can't even manage to write articles on my blogs anymore, either. I do keep a journal though and I also write poetry again. I wrote poems and song lyrics in my teens and 20s, long before I wrote novels.


1. Only someone with a cat would understand the beautiful amazing love of a cat.
2. I just started sleeping on Mum's leg at night again because the last few nights have been cooler and she now covers herself with the duvet. I like the duvet as it feels like a cushion and it feels comfy and warm.
3. I find it hard to believe that I am now 10.
4. I should probably make Mum give me more of those treats that I love.

You are a most beautiful kitty, Athena.

I love both your fill-ins. I love it that you're sleeping together again. I always enjoyed that too.

Tell your mom she's young. I'll be 70 in September.

Have a purrfect day and week. My best to your mom. ♥

That is a beautiful selfie. Thank you both for participating in the fil-ins, great answers. I can't believe I am in my 50's either and I completely understand your #1 ( both of yours actually) . XO

What a lovely and beautiful selfie, sweet Athena.

Mum Marie, would you ever consider sharing some of your poems here on the blog?

Brian's Home Blog said...

Such a pretty selfie sweet Athena and those were all good answers.

Timmy Tomcat said...

Great fill ins you two.

We all learn and grow and I hope you can enjoy life as much as you show us Athena does. I have found I am doing a lot better with my anxiety since I started meditating. I use Headspace. It costs but I am glad I got it. Gentle and it lets you grow at your own pace.

Cathy Keisha said...

TW has always been cold so she sleeps with a comforter summer and winter. Since she started treatment she's even colder all the time.
Great answers, Athena.

Thanks for your comments, everyone.

meowmeowmans - personal poems too depressing to share but my animal rights poems (also quite depressing but it helps to raise awareness for the animals suffering) can be read on my other blog Purrs Full Of Love

Dash Kitten - I do yoga and also try to work on my breath to ease some of the anxiety. I've tried meditating but I just can't do it. I've tried some of the apps too.

CK - Purrs and love to TW x

Lovely selfie of Athena.
Sorry you are having such issues with your state of being. I understand that part about not knowing,because while I have had more than my own share of major health issues, depression/anxiety is not one of them. I do know how real it is, though, having seen it in many others. My heart goes out to you.

I am too getting past the young years...mid sixties already! Can't believe that my sister will be 70 in a couple of time marches on and on! I don't feel old though, I am still working and my silly pups help me feel younger with all their antics, as did my kitties in the past...and just trying to have a positive outlook helps me too.
Nobody at my work believes my age! I can keep up and even work circles around those who are years younger than even my sons!! LOL!

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty said...

Meezer's Mews - I don't feel like I'm 55 and I know I don't look it as I've always looked young for my age. The scary thing is indeed how time marches on - much faster at our age!

gorgeous as always! It's hard to believe that I am 65!! My heart goes out to you, I know many who suffer from anxiety/depression and it isn't easy (((hugs)))

Hello, gorgeous Athena! And thank you both for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! Aren't cool nights just wonderful? They make cuddling so nice and cozy. Purrs!
