Looking after someone else’s cats can be fun, but it can also be a little overwhelming if you’re not familiar with each cat’s individual sensibilities. When a Tumblr user named Amanda was tasked with watching her friend’s family of felines, she was thankfully left with a helpful note to guide her through the experience. After she posted the cheeky ‘key for the cats’ with photos of each furbaby, it was immediately clear that the descriptions she was given were spot-on.

When cat-sitting, it’s important to remember a lot more than just how the cat looks. According to international cat-sitting expert Maria Atkins, acting calm around new cats and giving them as much time as they need to feel comfortable around you is crucial. Cats rely heavily on scent, so it may take them a short while to get used to yours if it’s your first time in their home. When in doubt, however, play time goes a long way – with the occasional treat thrown in to sweeten the deal.

Get to know the whole gang below, and see if you can guess who’s who!

The Cats:

Here is your key for the cats:

Samson: All gray. The most handsome cat you’ve ever seen. Looks like the cat was drawn by a Disney animator.

Dobby: All black. No tail. Looks like a cat that was drawn by a person who has a vague idea of what cats look like but in reality has never seen one.

Dixie: Calico. Looks like she would speak with a squeaky voice. Very short. Will use her nails to love you.

Wilson: Gray and white. Obese. Still adorable. Looks like Tony Soprano. Probably the mob boss.

This was written by an 83 year old woman to her friend. The last line says it all.
Dear Bertha,
I’m reading more and dusting less. I’m sitting in the yard and admiring the view without fussing about the weeds in the garden. I’m spending more time with my family and friends and less time working. Whenever possible, life should be a pattern of experiences to savor, not to endure. I’m trying to recognize these moments now and cherish them.
I’m not “saving” anything; we use our good China and crystal for every special event such as losing a pound, getting the sink unstopped, or the first Amaryllis blossom. I wear my good blazer to the market. My theory is if I look prosperous, I can shell out $28.49 for one small bag of groceries.
I’m not saving my good perfume for special parties, but wearing it for clerks in the hardware store and tellers at the bank. Someday” and “one of these days” are losing their grip on my vocabulary. If it’s worth seeing or hearing or doing, I want to see and hear and do it now.
I’m not sure what others would’ve done had they known they wouldn’t be here for the tomorrow that we all take for granted. I think they would have called family members and a few close friends. They might have called a few former friends to apologize and mend fences for past squabbles. I like to think they would have gone out for a Chinese dinner or for whatever their favorite food was. I’m guessing; I’ll never know.
It’s those little things left undone that would make me angry if I knew my hours were limited. Angry because I hadn’t written certain letters that I intended to write one of these days. Angry and sorry that I didn’t tell my husband and parents often enough how much I truly love them. I’m trying very hard not to put off, hold back, or save anything that would add laughter and luster to our lives. And every morning when I open my eyes,tell myself that it is special. Every day, every minute, every breath truly is a gift from God.
If you received this, it is because someone cares for you. If you’re too busy to take the few minutes that it takes right now to forward this, would it be the first time you didn’t do the little thing that would make a difference in your relationships? I can tell you it certainly won’t be the last.
Take a few minutes to send this to a few people you care about, just to let them know that you’re thinking of them. People say “True friends must always hold hands, but true friends don’t need to hold hands because they know the other hand will always be there.” I don’ t believe in Miracles. I rely on them.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE OVER 60

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.

With a 5 lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your side and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then, relax.

Each day you’ll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.

After a couple of weeks, move up to 10 lb. bags. Then try 50 lb potato bags and eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100 lb. bag in each hand and hold your hands straight for more than a full minute. (I’m at this level)

If you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In our daily circumstances, we can lose keeping our focus on Jesus so easily. Sometimes we get so caught up with magnifying our problems and disappointments instead of magnifying our blessings. When trials, disappointments, anger, hostility surround you, magnify the Lord and His goodness, His mercies, and His unconditional love He has for you. Lift your concerns, your disappointments, your circumstances up to the Lord in prayer. The Lord is always near; always and forever.

NOTHING IS TOO HARD FOR THE LORD, By Daily Disciples

“The apostles said to the Lord, ‘Increase our faith!’ And the Lord said, ‘If you had faith like a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and be planted in the sea’; and it would obey you.” – Luke 17:5-6

Abraham was 100 years old and Sarah was 90 years old when Isaac was born. Both Abraham and Sarah were well past child bearing age. Most likely, they could not imagine having a baby at such an old age, but God had a different plan. The Lord knew the exact time in which Sarah would have Isaac and it would clearly be a miraculous blessing to her life. Throughout the years, as the Lord kept telling Abraham of this promise, Abraham kept believing and waiting on the promise to be fulfilled. Twenty-four years after God first promised an heir to Abraham, three men showed up at Abraham’s door. The Lord was one of the three and He again restated His promise that they will bring forth a son, a baby boy. Sarah reacted by laughing. The Lord responded with a question: “Is anything too hard for the Lord?”

Abraham was a man of faith. God said it and Abraham believed what God said. Simple, pure, powerful faith. Sarah believed Abraham and trusted his words but when the Lord showed up, she lacked in her faith to believe. She even laughed at what God said. For us, sometimes it is easier for us to believe a person or to believe in a person than to trust in God. If God gives us a promise we can have a hard time trying to work it out ourselves. The hardest part is waiting on the Lord to fulfill it. We wait, we wonder and sometimes we worry but God is always faithful to keep His promises. Nothing is too hard for the Lord. Nothing. If He says it, then He will do it.

BRIDE WHO IS A COMPUTER ENGINEER DOESN’T HAVE ANY GIRLFRIENDS, SO SHE INVITES HER BROS INSTEAD – by Vaiva Vareikaite on Bored Panda


What would you do if you wanted to have a bridal photoshoot but did not have any girlfriends? Invite your bros to have it with you. That’s exactly what 24-year-old Rebeca from Brazil did, and we must say, it was a great idea. “I came up with the idea one week before the wedding. I was looking into some “making of” pictures of brides with their gang of girls, all in robes, laughing, and I got a bit sad because I wouldn’t be able to do anything like that” – Rebeca told Bored Panda.
