FURTHER UPDATE......

UPDATE: Sunday Morning, 12:10 A.M. August 15th...He's Home!!!! HOORAY, HOORAY!! He looks a bit thin, but that's to be expected....He began eating the moment he got home...And that is a very good thing! We have had some lovely relaxed quality time together and both of us fell asleep....Now, we will see what tomorrow brings....For now, All Is Good!
Hoping to get my dear Sweetie home on Saturday....Fingers, Toes, Legs and Eyes...all crossed....He is doing really well, I'm happy to say.....! I think he will do even better once he gets home.....In that picture above...I love his 'intention', as we say in acting. It's the way he is looking at that shadow on the table---I love it!
I'll keep you all informed as I know more......

On another subject.......I was standing out on my Balcony-Deck and looking down at the Garden....I always check the Waterfall Sculpture to see if any Birds are taking-the-waters, so to speak. The Video above was what was happening as I turned on my Camera......For a little while there was only this one Bird drinking and bathing, but pretty soon.....well, you will see for yourself. I call this video "Territorial Imperative".....

More To Come..........

Note: I would really be remiss if I did not acknowledge the passing of the truly sublime Patricia Neal...I was lucky enough to see Pat Neal on Broadway, in three different plays...Two of them were especially important: Her Tony Award winning performance as the young Regina, in "Another Part Of The Forest" by Lillian Hellman, in 1946, (The same Regina who in 'The Little Foxes' is older and more predatory). And then, I saw her again, in the memorable revival if Lillian Hellman's "The Children's Hour", 1952...She was, in a word, BRILLIANT in both these very important plays.....She was perfection on film, too.....My personal favorites..."A FACE IN THE CROWD" (Below, with Andy Griffith---a wonderful film),"HUD", and "BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S". Of course there were many many more....like "THE SUBJECT WAS ROSES", made after her very debilitating stroke, when they thought she would never walk or talk again, let alone "act"....Her life, personal and otherwise, was filled with great tragedy, But she was a true survivor. Her personal story is inspirational in every way. She will be missed.

RIP dear Pat Neal......

WONDERFUL news about Sweetie. When that baby comes home, I will be doing a happy dance with you. I know you have missed him so. Spoil that little baby, you have both had a tough week.
Loved the video. That bird wasn't about to share was he?
I was an admirer of Patricia Neal also and was so impress how she came back from her stroke. I have the feeling, life was just not easy for that talented lady.

"that's MY water! Mine! Mine! Mine!" lol lol love it Naomi.. and and beyond happy that Sweetie is coming home!!!! give him chin tickles for me!

yes, I felt bad about my Patricia Neals passing (same name as mine!).I read her biography some time ago and her recovery from the strokes was nothing short of miraculous.

Hi dear Naomi,
I am sooooo happy for you!!!
It's great that Sweetie is well and come back home tomorrow! My fingers, toes, legs and eyes...all crossed too!

I love the video, Naomi! That's amazing! Territorial Imperative is really a good name for it. This bird make me smile. You capture so well this nature moment.

Last but not least, I am sorry for the passing of the beautiful and talented actress Patricia Neal...

Have a good day!

I adore those bathing birdies! Nice video, my friend, and I'm happy to hear Sweetie is doing better and that there's a good chance he'll be home soon! He's going to be thrilled to see you again and be where he's happiest.

PS - Sorry to hear about Patricia Neal's passing. I loved "Breakfast at Tiffany's!"

So glad Sweetie will be coming home soon! Have a great weekend and love him up, I'm sure he's been missing you.

That is wonderful news about Sweetie. I am so glad they could figure it out and get him on the road to recovery. I can imagine how thrilled he will be to get back home. It's so tough that we cannot tell them what is going on

I love to watch birds interact :)

And On Patricia Neal, what a great life she had. She lived it fully and raised children who were capable of their own wonderful lives which in her world is quite a challenge.

Dear Naomi,

We are very happy it seems Sweetie will be home again very soon.

I hope Sweetie will be home tomorrow and all well.

That bird needs a sign: NO communal bathing!!

Naomi,
excuse me when I was so thrilled seeing Sweeties intention.
I'm also very thrilled when seeing a cat so concentrated - nothing can disturb but a big bang

i.e. the rest of your post is fabulous, but my whole consentration and focus ended up with Sweetie---

Yay!! Sweetie is coming home
I'm thrilled
Iza and Siren are very relieved

Patricia Neal was a wonderful actress and a class act

Sweetie looks good. I will keep up the prayers though, it has to be tough him. (and you) Patricia Neal, what a tough broad. We know one day they will go, as we all will, but it still always gives us pause and reflection. especially for someone like you with so many fond memories.

Very glad to hear that Sweetie is recovering, how wonderful it will be when you can bring him home! His "intention" will be on you then :-)

HA!! Great birdie video~~they just do not share well, tho there was plenty of water for all...MINE!

Sorry to hear of Pat Neal's passing...I never had the honor of seeing her stage performances, but she stared on screen opposite many fine leading men..."In Harm's Way" with John Wayne, one of my favorites.

Welcome Home Sweetie!!!! I believe you and Sweetie are both in 7th heaven about now! hugs and chin tickles!

How wonderful to see that he's home and eating :) He has to be so happy as we can't explain any of it to them and they just have to trust in our love without the words to reassure them.

Naomi, I'm SO VERY HAPPY to hear that Sweetie is home and eating!! I'm so glad you have your dear baby and friend back again, and I know he's so glad to be home!! I hope he continues to get better and better! xxxoxx

I'm very glad to hear that Sweetie has come home from the vet's, and that he seems to be recovering from whatever ails him. I know how much he means to you, Naomi.
I hope that he keeps feeling better. He must be so happy to be home. It must have been quite traumatic for him to spend so much time in the kitty hospital.

I'm so so glad for you (and Sweetie) that he is home!

Hi Nay, That was such a perfect video moment that you captured! How you didn't break into a laugh shows great control! Amazing!!
Glad the kitty is doing better and he's finally home. I know how difficult that was for you.

Welcome home, Sweetie! Your mama missed you very much, so let her pamper you like crazy. Give lots of purrs, and maybe she will open a tuna fish can and drain the liquid out for you! My dear cat, Nikki, absolutely loved that treat!
Glad to hear the good news.

Appreciated your comments about Patricia Neal. I, too, enjoyed her performances though I was never fortunate enough to see her in person. I was quite saddened to hear of her death announced on the news. I was always intrigued with her recovery efforts following a devastating stroke. I'd been planning a piece about stroke with intentions of mentioning some of her experience, but now will have to alter my comments.
