Xena Saves the X letter Day

Xena, cat number three, holds a star position for this letter day. As the oldest and most regal, she gets a haircut each spring to remove most of her winter coat!


It is long process as she will only allow a few minutes a day, when I can catch her, to trim her fur with barber's scissors. 

Small for a Maine coon, she has held her own for many years in this tough rural environment.
There she is next to the henhouse in need of repair. 

On a totally different topic, page views are up, up, up! Not sure if I was discovered by another AtoZ participant or someone has linked back to my blog. Hiddee ho to all of you new and returning visitors!

Sales are down, down, down. Mainly all of my listed items on eBay are centered around staying at home. I think people have had their fill of home and want to go, go, go. I know that I do. Next month, I will finally be able to visit my 93 year old mother who resides in an assisted living center. She is allowed the leave the center during the day but is not allowed to stay anywhere overnight. We will make the best of day road trips. 

As an aside, I am a Yuge Xavier Cugat fan. 


  1. What a great name for a cat!

    I always love "X" day. It is so much fun to see what people come up with!

  2. I love this! I've seen a few Xena posts, but none were about a CAT! 🐈
    I love letter X posts! Always such variety.
    It's hard to believe the blogging challenge is almost over for 2021. Then the after survey, reflections, and the road trip sign-up.
    Plus, I'm taking part in the Bout of Books read-a-thon in May. So much excitement!
