“Will I fit, Maybe I’ll fit, I’m sure I’ll Fit”

“Will I fit, Maybe I’ll fit, I’m sure I’ll Fit”

This is our cat Luigi to a “T”, he just love small thing too hid in or sit in, the smaller the better, the latest thing that taken his fancy, is the bill try on the office desk, if there to many papers in it, he pulls them out, doesn’t matter where it is on the desk it need to be sat or lay in, even if half of him is hanging out.

Australian Soldier

Last week a young Australian Soldier come home to his Family to be lay to rest, as I always do I when by the Australian Army web page on Facebook to leave a message under his picture out of respect for what this young man had done for his country, as I read down the comment and I come across one that made my blood boil.

These are the words the young lady put up,

“He would not be f...k died if he had not been there, bring them f....k home and stop them killing people”.

Now this young lady who is an Aussie, has forgotten, some things about our Soldiers, so on the off change she may see this, I will remind her,

1. It was a page to pay “Respect” to a fallen

Soldier; it was the wrong place for you to have your say.

2. Where is your “Respect”, for this young man

Family, who would see your very hurtful words.

3. Do you never think, that someday someone may be saying this about a member of your Family, and how would you feel then.

4. If you want to have your say, you should get off your butt, and go see a Pollie.

5. You! Need, to know the reason, you can have your say and that you lives in a FREE! Country, is

Thanks! To Our Soldiers.

Our Soldier’s do not go to war, for the fun of it, they go because our country ask them too, and they do, the job, that is ask of them, they are the very Best Australia has.

So if you can’t show Respect! To our Soldier’s who lay there Life on the line for us, you can always go live elsewhere, I’m sure there country out there, who would not mind taking your Freedom away from you.

Do I think our Soldier’s, should be fighting in the countries, that they are fighting, I have to be honest and say, some time Yes and some time No, should they come home, my answer is the same, some time Yes and some time No.


As the wife of a Nam Vet, the one thing I do know is that I will always support our Soldier’s.

Like the say goes:

“If you can’t stand beside our Soldier’s, you can always stand in front of them”.

“Lest We Forget”


We are Free,

Thanks to Those Who Fight and Lay Down Their Lives’ for Our Freedom.

Cats indoors or out doors

Time for Bitch!!

You may not want read past here

Most people know we have a cat, called Luigi and he an indoor cat and up till a month ago he was the only cat in our street, then we had people move in across the road with two cats, both outdoor cats, one being a tom who not spayed, and who has taken a liking to our front door and the smell drive Luigi mad.

When will people who keep cat learn, that they are not like dogs, they won’t just stay in their yard, that they have to look after them more than any dog.

I am feed up to the eyeteeth with people tell me what bitch I am for keep Luigi as an indoor cat,


My cat will never get run over by a car,

My cat will never be attacked by a dog,

My cat will never pick up a bate and eat it and died a slow death


MOST of all My cat will never kill any Aussie wild life


If that make me a bitch so be it, I don’t give a dam.

I would love ever cat owner, who, think I’m so very bloody barbaric for keeping Luigi inside, to hear their cat kill a frog and for them to hear the sound of the frog dying as there cat kill it slowly and painfully and I can tell them all, they will never forget that sound of that frog dying, cat don’t kill out right, they play, it just the way they are, and they kill so much of our wild life it not funny.

What more how would these so call good owner who let their cat roam all over town, feel, to see their cat die a slow death because it pick up a bat and eaten it.

If I had my way, all cats would be registered just like dogs and all family pets be they cats or dogs would be spayed, we don’t need unwanted cats and dogs going feral and it not right or fair, that this should happen to any cat or dog, because of some people, who too stupid to give a dam about their pet.

Cat don’t care if they inside all day, before we got Luigi, he was an outdoor cat for three years, he has not been out in the last eighteen months, and he no worry about going out, as long as you give an indoor cat lots to do, to keep their mind active, they are ok. Luigi has the whole house to play in, he has stuff in every room, and he knows what he can’t do and what he will get yell at for.

I love Luigi to death, but I also know in my heart he is and always will be a hunter and a killer, you can see it in the way he plays and this is why he will

“Always Be an Indoor Cat”.
