My husband and I decided to rescue three kittens, and I’m in love! They are the cutest. After Memphis passed away, his brother Mr. Miyagi was devastated. He seemed depressed and was missing his brother. we waited over a month before deciding to get another kitten. I thought maybe if we got a kitten, it would get him out of his funk.

The day that we went to look at the kittens, I was a nervous wreck. I had no idea how my other cat would react to a kitten. Miyagi is a very sweet cat and loves everyone and he loves our two dogs. Sometimes he likes to sleep with them, especially Buddy, our bulldog.

We went to the foster house where the kittens were and we saw them and my heart melted. I was only looking for one kitten, possibly two, but not three. We were playing with them and they were a boost of energy. One kitten was all black, and the other two were a mix of black and tiger stripes. They were supposedly all sisters. So when we saw them, we knew that we had to get all three. I didn’t want to rip them apart.

We brought them home and locked them in one of our spare bedrooms, gave them food, water, a litter box and a nice cozy blanket. The first night, my husband slept with them. Of course almost every day since we got them, he’s been sleeping with them. By the second or third day, they started to get comfortable with us. They’re climbing all over me and meow and whenever I come in. It’s the cutest thing ever. It makes my heart smile.

We put a gate up in the hallway, so we could introduce our other cat to him. Of course he was hissing at them, but after a few days the hissing subsided. Now he comes and visits them on a regular basis, by jumping over the gate and into their room. The kittens can now also climb over the gate and they go into our bedroom. They’re starting to explore more and play a lot. The cat doesn’t seem to mind so much these days, just if they get too close, he hisses.

We also decided to introduce one of our dogs Zoe. She’s a Cairn Terrier, so she’s kind of small. As soon as she saw them, she wanted to play with them. We had the gate there so she couldn’t get to them. The kittens didn’t like her. They were hissing at her.

A couple days later, they were all in the same room, and they got along. We have brought Buddy up one time, behind the gate and the kittens didn’t like him much. He barked and sneezed in their faces. They obviously didn’t like that. We’re limiting our time with Buddy for now. We don’t think he’ll do anything, but he’s jealous and he doesn’t like change. He’s a momma’s boy, so he doesn’t want another animal coming along taking over haha I think he’s harmless though. Eventually, I think they’ll all get along. Maybe even play together. I thought it was cute that all the kittens, Zoe, and Miyagi were all in the same room. I’m really enjoying these three babies and can’t wait to see what the future will be with all animals together. I also hope that Miyagi will get out of his funk. This morning, he was actually playing with toys. I was so happy! I’d like to introduce you to Gypsy, Bella, and Stella Rose!

Birthdays…

I love birthdays, I don’t care what anyone says. I know some people who hate them but I love them. Another year older and little more wiser. They just make me feel special. My birthday was yesterday and it was a wonderful day.

I took off from work to get a massage with my mama which was great! I really needed it. My husband treated me to some shopping and then we went out to dinner. While at dinner I received some fantastic news that an agent is requesting my work. I’m not going to get my hopes up but hey it’s finally nice to get recognized . I wrote my first book almost a year ago and wrote my second book about six months after that. The third book (which is the sequel to the second) is taking a little bit longer due to personal issues. It’s getting there, I’m a little over halfway done.

Anyways as I’m distracted by all that I just wanted to say birthdays are amazing. It means you made it another year and you have another year to look forward to. I know people always say “I’m getting old” well no shit, that’s the joys of growing and aging lol. Growing goes with experience I think.

I’m very appreciative to all the people that wished me a happy birthday yesterday. Friends and family and strangers 🙂 means a lot to me!

A big thank you!

I’m really excited about this book because personally it means something to me. When I was 12 I was in a bad accident and so I wrote a story that made me think of that time. It’s fiction but to me it could be real. I hope everyone checks it out. I really appreciate the support that you’ve been giving me. It’s hard to find people in your corner when you want to follow your dreams and write. Thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤️ 

From Within by M. Rose Bushey

Yahtzee

I can’t believe time flies by so quickly. This is the last week of the show that I’m in. 3 weeks sure comes and goes. I had a wonderful experience and I may do it again. I met a lot of people whom I hope to keep in touch with.

In other news I finally received copies of my first novel Braver Than Yesterday, which can be found on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I’m hoping to have a book signing or possibly selling them in a local bookstore. So please if you haven’t checked it out yet please do so. Also my Facebook page under Melissa Rose Bushey. I’m actually thinking about changing my pen name to Missy Rose. What do you think about that? Is that weird? It’s just a thought. I feel like Melissa Rose Bushey is just too formal. I feel like I need to break it down.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday and my heart and prayers go out to the families of the Manchester victims. It’s simply terrible what is going on in this world. All you need is Love!! Take care of each other! Much love!

Feeling Excited

I just wanted to write today about the new novel I’m working on. I’m super excited about this one and I am not giving it away. I feel more inspired this time around with writing. I feel like the words are just pouring out of me. I don’t know if anyone has ever experienced this before but I’m really loving it.

Today I wrote a ton of pages and I felt like I couldn’t stop, but I finally took a break. Lately writing for me has been hard, I was having little inspiration. Yesterday’s blog post I wrote of 9/11 and ever since then I guess I feel like I woke up. I needed something to kick me in the ass to get me motivated. I’m here and breathing and healthy and I need to live, if that means writing then so be it. I come to realize that writing is my thing, I love it. If I can express myself then I will do so. I never imagined that this is where I would be in my life, but things happen for a reason and that’s the path that you walk down. I will continue to do what I love to do.

I feel like I got a lot accomplished on this book and I feel really good about it, which is all that matters. If I wrote this book and I was dissatisfied then I would have to scrap it but I feel something inside me that is amazing. It’s like a flower blooming inside my chest, a world that opened up for me. That’s why I’m excited! Thanks to all you wonderful people for reading my blog and I hope you get the chance to read my first novel called Not Alone on Amazon. Just type in the search box my name Melissa Rose Bushey, I found that was a lot easier then putting in the title because there are apparently a lot of books called Not Alone. A Novel. 🙂

Much love everyone!

Valentine’s Day

So it’s that time of year for candy, sweet gifts, and love if your in a relationship with someone. But hey if you have friends that you love you can also share it with them. I just wanted to throw my 2 cents in about this holiday. It’s every girls dream to have flowers delivered and all that romantic stuff but I wanted to take a minute to say something strange. I don’t know maybe I’m weird but as I was thinking about today something made me think of 9/11 and I have no idea why.

I was sitting here thinking  of what to write about for my daily blog and 9/11 swept through me. I went on YouTube and saw a documentary about that horrific day and I watched it. I felt horrible and saddened by the events that took place. I know today is supposed to be a happy day of love and kisses and puppies but I don’t know I just felt something wash over me with 9/11. I have no idea what that means, but it gave me a moment to reflect on that day. It made me think of the people that died on that day and the people that lost someone that was involved whether it was the World Trade Center or the planes that went down.

Maybe instead of thinking what I could be getting from the hubby, I should be thinking about other people instead, of what people lost. I’m definitely not trying to be a Debbie downer, I’m really not. It’s just strange for something like that to pop into my head like that and now it’s stuck in my head. All those people trapped in that building and they couldn’t get out and the only thing that some of them could think of was throwing themselves off.

Okay I’m done with that, that was totally depressing and I wasn’t trying to be. That was just running through my mind. Please try and enjoy your Valentine’s Day people. Think romantic and funny and cute and amazing thoughts. Much love to each and every one of you!

Contagious

Don’t let the title fool you, I don’t mean contagious as in sick and someone is going catch something from someone else. I mean contagious in a positive way. Meaning that when you’re all smiles and happy, that can transform someone else and they can be happy and all smiles, which in turn can be contagious. The way we act towards others can generate a new and wonderful day for someone else. For example, if someone is having a bad day and they come across someone that is truly happy and all smiles, that could turn the person that’s in a bad mood, happy.

So I’m writing today because I want to share my happiness with everyone today. I know my last post was about happiness but I can’t help to continue on the happiness path. You have the power to control your own emotions and feelings, just look on the bright side of something that seems to be dragging you down. Maybe you’re financially doing awful but you still have a house, you have food in the fridge, you have heat, and you have electric. Sometimes the brain can be a tricky thing but don’t let it bring you down. Look at the positive in everything.

If you would please check out my book on Amazon, I would be super grateful. The book is called Not Alone: A Novel under my name Melissa Rose Bushey. The book is a Suspenseful Thriller with some Mystery. If this intrigues you, please check it out. Have an amazing day! Spread the love 🙂
