About Me

My photo
A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!

Dan is not a cat fancier by any stretch of the imagination.  I'm not sure when this happened as I know as a child, his farm family had lots of cats.  They milked cows so there were always cats around at milking time.

When we go to visit our son and daugther in law and grandkids in Charlotte, Dan barely tolerates the attention that he receives from all of their cats.  It is like these cats KNOW to bug him.  He doesn't seem to have an issue with my daughter's two cats but I think that is because they pretty much leave him alone and entertain themselves, putting on a clown show to endear themselves to the newcomers.

But, since we have been here, there is a black cat that comes around.  She (don't really know if it is a she or not, but that's what I'm going with) has a bad back leg and limps on it.  Other than that she looks like she does find meals.  We don't think she is an indoor cat because she is so flighty.  I think she may have been abused because she IS so scared.  Even the birds leaving the bird feeder make her jump.

But we've been putting any leftovers out for her and if I don't have left overs I come up with something.  Dan actually thought about purchasing some cat food at the store yesterday but decided we wouldn't go that far.  Who will take care of her when we leave, ya know?

So I thought I would post a photo of what she looked like before we started feeding her and one of what she looks like since we've been feeding her....

And this is what she looks like now after being fed every day;



  1. Whoa! You better back off some on the feedings!! 2 funny!

    HA! It looks like whatever you feed her has gone to her head!

  3. Mel, Maybe she had an allergic reaction!

    Anonymous, It surprises us how much she eats since she doesn't look TOO skinny.

  4. hahahahaa I love kitties...she was probably licking your lens.
