Tortie Tuesday

It's Tortie Tuesday! Today I was sitting here looking out the window, observing and thinking...
I noticed that often we see something that we wish we had or could do. But what we don't see is that it's often way more comfortable where we are than where someone else is sitting...
Today's lesson is to be appreciative of what you have because the seat elsewhere isn't always softer than the one you're already sitting on!

Happy Tortie Tuesday!
Isabella

My arse is well padded so I don't see.... oh, you're speaking metaphorically! LOL

Sparkle said...

Those are wise words, Isabella. Oddly enough, my not-so-wise human thinks about that a lot.

Isabella, you are a wise girl besides being Tortilicious. I'm glad you said that. We kitties need reminding sometimes when we rush to do something without thinking it out.

Bonks and purrs, you beautiful girl you.

Russ said...

That is a great way of putting it Isabella. You look nice and comfortable. Another saying that we have is "The grass is not always greener on the other side of the street" We all need to enjoy what we have.

Faith said...

What a beautiful lesson, Isabella! And so true. I think true happiness is being content with what you have at that moment. Thanks for the sweet reminder! :)

Simba said...

Quite deep thoughts, Isabella. Yes, that kitty's but is not as comfy as yours where you are sitting. And it's maybe starting to get chillier, so you have a nice warm house.

Anny said...

That's a pretty wise word there Is :) We should always be thankful for a warm home and good food... :) happy tortie tuesday girlie.

Those are furry wise words! And that is one cute outside kitty.

Mishkat said...

This is so true, Isabella! Our mom says you should come over and try to teach Franklin this - he always wants someone else's spot (but he's still cute!)

I really needed to read this. We are back in North Carolina, where we used to live, and I am visiting old friends, seeing my old house, and feeling a little sorry for myself that we left. I have to remember the wonderful blessings that moving to Texas has given us.

This post really helped me a lot.
so.. thanks.
:)

Marg said...

Hi Isabella, that is all so true. We all have to appreciate what we have and not worry about what the other animal or person has. Just be grateful to have a place to sit. Great pictures.

tahtimbo said...

That is too true. It is something I need to remind myself often.
Isabella, you are wise beyond your years :)

I couldn't agree more, Isabella. Very profound words - and very wise!

Very good lesson for the day Isabella. It's very true that the grass isn't always greener, I think it's just the way the light hits it :)

Laura said...

Very wise, indeed! I know my little front porch kitty visitor sure wishes he could be inside chillaxin on something comfy!

Katnip Lounge said...

Verreh true, Isabella. We all came in from the Outside after being Abandoned, and we need to remember that alla us kitties don't have it so good.

Splendid Little Stars said...

You are so right, Isabella! And just think of all the wonderful things you can see from that comfortable inside seat!

Reeni said...

Is that your neighbor kitty Isabella? That doesn't look very comfortable - I'd rather be inside too - where it's safe and warm! Love, Moon
