Sierra was given some very bad news today.
Her beloved mail-man came to the door to say "Good-bye" to us as he is starting a new route in a different part of our town tomorrow. Yes, the mailman that she sat and waited for every morning without fail on her little red bench. We will miss Terry as he was a great guy and always enjoyed a conversation with the retired-guy. But,  no one will miss him more than Sierra.  Terry always gave her cuddles.
She has been distraught all day today. She has yet to leave her '24 cans of holistic cat food' box and refuses to join us by the wood-stove. I'm wondering if she will ever sit on her porch bench again.
                                                            "I can't face the world."

I told her that life was full of changes; beginnings and ends. That someday a new mailman would come along (actually that would be tomorrow) and a new part to her life would begin. She had to just 'buck up' and get on with things. Accept change and hope that she would soon fall in love again. But she's not buying it. She just can't face the world right now.
I may have to intercept the first meeting and give this guy a heads up. He'd better like cats.

I'm joining up with

hugs, Deb


  1. I know all too well that cats DO NOT like change. Bailey would give me the "brush off" anytime I moved anything around. Sierra may just need a lot of extra cuddling to get through this--wish I lived closer, I'd be on your doorstep:-D

  2. Awww we are sad too, as we know how pussy cats love their routines. As I was reminded at 7am by Poppy telling me I had to get up. After 10 minutes of groaning at me, and one visit to her full biscuit bowl I had to give her a talking to and tell her it was the weekend, and she could relax. So then she went back to sleep.

  3. Sweet post and photos ! Funny cats aren't they ? A little story here for ya. Every morning when Papa leaves to go to work he gives Harley a treat as she sees him of to work whilst Miggy and I are still snoozing its early when he leaves and a biscuit for Miggy in the living room in her bed , well this morning when we came down Miggy went to get her biscuit and it wasn't there it was on the mat by the front door , well when I asked Papa about it he said he put it in her bed realized that Harley had picked it up and moved it funny cause it is a big biscuit I can only imaging how Harley had to move it ! I do hope this new mail person and Sierra become good friends ! Have a good day !

  4. Aw, Sierra, we're sorry your friend Terry won't be visiting you anymore. But maybe the new mailman will become a good friend too!

  5. It's always sad when friends move away, but perhaps the new mailperson will become a new friend! :)

  10. Aaaawwwww...poor thing.

    Isn´t it amazing tho how they somehow understand everything us humans say or do?
    Dogs, cats, horses... it doesn´tmatter, even my pet mice seem to understand me.
    When will my fellow humans manage to do that?

    Have a lovely weekend,


  11. Such a beauty and the mailman will probably miss her too. Lovely photos!

  12. Poor Sierra. I hope she gets along well with the new mailman.
    My cat still sits and waits for his hummingbird friend that has left for warmer climes!

  13. Hope Sierra will not be too disappointed with the new mailperson.

  14. I'm sorry, Sierra, it's not easy, is it.
    Sending you cuddles ♥

  15. Poor Sierra. The new guy MUST love cats!

  16. Cats can be so selective about who they cuddle with- hope the new mail person passes muster.

  17. Oh goodness! This is sad :( I hope your new mail man can live up to her expectations. Reliable "patters" are hard to find these days ;)

  18. and people say cats aren't loving!
    of course they are, they're just selective
    Sierra is lovely
    I hope the new mail person is worthy of her

  19. ent desired goals for losing belly fat. While specified drugs briefly solve the problem,
    the nasty side effects are not worth it, plus they never present more than a short lived solution.
    It is just a known proven fact that 95% of fad diets fail. for sharing your notions on this blog site.

  20. Thanks for your suggestions. One thing really noticed is banks
    plus financial institutions have in mind the spending habits of consumers
    plus understand that most of the people max out there their own credit cards around the breaks.
    They properly take advantage of this particular fact and

    hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've
    worked hard on. Any recommendations?
