A Slight Change

As may be observed, I have changed the heading of my blog. It may be altered in detail later on, but I thought that it was time for the look to be updated. I have never worried too much about the appearance of the site, but decided that some cats needed to be included who have not been hitherto.

It would be more interesting if I could announce that a new era has been inaugurated. But, in fact, life is not very much like a calendar: few of its events occur at the beginning or end of each year or month; a century’s first period has more in common with the previous century’s last than with the new one’s later years. Life has brought me new cats, while taking away others; it has bestowed great changes on some who remain, while leaving others as they were.

But my blog’s new look represents the beasts who have influenced me, and who will continue to do so. And that, I suppose, is a good reason to commemorate them, after all.


  1. I love the new header. I know what you mean; I often think of my life as a long slideshow of cats (and the occasional dog) blending together into a nonstop bittersweet panorama.

  2. All the sayings about cats are all very
    true.."a home without a cat is just a house"
    and so on...
    I have'nt had a cat for some years now, l
    felt that when George went on..(that's him on
    the left there)..and l was getting on..l decided
    against have another..though l have Fudge and
    Flossie, two regular visitors, they pop round every
    day for a saucer of milk, the odd treat, and a chat! :).
    Bless! :).

    And the new header is great John..a change once in a
    while is a good thing..! 😼 🐾🐾

  3. Your new header looks lovely. It is good to see Tungsten, Bear Bear and Parker prominently displayed on it, which of course is as it should be.

  4. The header looks good! I'm sure there will be changes in the future, both happy and bittersweet.

    BTW, I see Cydney on your sidebar...oh, my heart! So much like my angel Chumley in sweet/sad expression and life experience. I hope she finds her forever home soon. ♥

  5. I love seeing the sweet faces that have become friends to me.

  6. It really is nice to include all of those sweeties.

  7. The header looks great John! It's nice to see all of the cats that I've read so much about.

    Like Kim, I saw the photo of Cydney on the sidebar. She is absolutely beautiful! I hope she finds her forever home soon.

  8. What else is a blog, than a representation of the writer? And everything changes; we all are along for your ride through life with cats!

  9. John your header looks terrific! I think it's lovely that you are honoring all of your lovely kitties.

  10. The new header is terrific, John! I'm so glad to see everyone is represented.

  11. I,too, love the new look! You have one cozy apartment with all your fur babies! Also I was touched to see you honoring your three angel cats.

  12. it is a nice new look and a great reflection of those cats in your life

  13. We like the new header. We like the inclusions and know all, past and present, for long or short time, have found a home at the cozy apartment
