ABOUT (UPDATED)

“Hey…the bird feeder’s empty! What did you do, oversleep or something?”

Hello Everyone, my name is Crystal Stewart and I would like to welcome you to my site CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE . I also have two other blogging sites and they are: WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING)TIGGER AND FRIENDS and TABBY CAT CLUB . My goal for this site is to meet new friends.

I’m also a country girl and just love it. I don’t live on a farm just way out in the country. By living out in the country, I have the opportunity to see all kinds of different animals. Some of the animals I’ve seen are: Bear, Squirrels, Raccoons, Wild Turkey, Fishers, Different kinds of Birds and many other animals too. I’ve seen some beautiful Sunrises and Sunsets too.

A PINK SUNRISE OR “LOVER’S SUNRISE”.

The rural town where I live is in Pennsylvania and is so small you are through it in a blink of an eye. It’s a fantastic experience living way out in the country because it’s so pretty and the animals you see are just incredible. Living out in the country is not just fun but it takes work too. I have lived way out in the country all my life.

I love Cats, Dogs and other animals too. I like listening to the Oldies, Country and Gospel Music. I also like read a lot and review paperback/print books and every now and then I cross-stitch too. I have an indoor Cat named Daisy Mae and she is a joy and a blessing. We have so much fun together.

I got my Cat Daisy Mae’s picture and story published in the Daily Kitten. I also have it published on my other site WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) . It is also on LinkedIn. Also, It’s been on Bloglovin’ and Tummy Rub Tuesday from Katzenworld. I hope you take the time to read it and like it enough to share it. I am blessed to have been asked to be a Guest Author(Contributor) for The Recipe Hunter.

Before I got Daisy Mae, I rescued a Grey Striped Tabby Cat from a very bad Kittyhood. I got her as a Senior Cat. Her name was Tigger and she passed away on 9-11-2015.

My faith in the Lord has led me through the good times and the hard times. I have been blessed thankfully with more good times than hard times. 

Every now and then, I’ll reblog an article but my site will be mostly pictures but not strictly pictures. I will also have other stuff on my site but you’ll never find a swear word or anything political. 

So when will I post? Well with life situations, Covid19 Global pandemic, I’m finding I’m not able to post as often so I’ll just post when I can.

I do hope you all will take this blogging journey with me and Thank You to those who already have.

Thank You Very Much My Wonderful Readers.

BREAKING NEWS: Daisy Mae Turns 14!!

QUEEN DAISY MAE SHOWING OFF HER GREY AND WHITE BELLY.

Hi everyone, I’ve got some BREAKING NEWS. Daisy Mae just turned 14 on September 12. That was her 14TH Gotcha Day. She was born just a few weeks before that. Daisy Mae asked me if she could share that with you all and how do I say NO to an adorable, cutie pie like her. She’s celebrating all of September and says that the best Birthday gift you could give her is to read, like and comment and of course a lot of tasty treats. Daisy Mae wants something let’s see what it is she wants.

Daisy Mae: Mom Crystal, am I really 14?

Mom Crystal: Yes Daisy Mae you’re 14. Why do you ask my darling sweet Pea? 

Daisy Mae: Well Mom Crystal, I feel more and more each day like “Sister” Tigger did and I seem to be getting slower.

Mom Crystal: Sniffle, Sniffle as Mom Crystal wipes her  eyes. Then says to Daisy Mae—join the club. We all get older and slower including myself.

Daisy Mae: I’m so sorry I mentioned “Sister” Tigger.

Mom Crystal: I’m not Daisy Mae.  You see your “Sister” Tigger was a very special Kitty Cat. Although she passed away 5 years ago on 9-11-2015, I miss Tigger every day. Why do you think I had that portrait done in honor of her.

Daisy Mae: Then I suppose it’s a good thing you had it done. Mom Crystal, when do I get my Birthday gifts?

Mom Crystal: Well Daisy Mae, you already got them. Remember the double dose of treats, the ice cubes, the brushing I gave you and the love you got and still get?

Daisy Mae: Yes, I remember all that. WOW!! what wonderful Birthday gifts.

Mom Crystal: Yes they are and guess what else  Daisy Mae?

Daisy Mae: WHAT? WHAT? WHAT? WHAT, WHAT?

Mom Crystal:  Well Daisy Mae… I think you’re a very special Kitty Cat just like your “Sister” Tigger was. You’re both very special and unique in your own ways.

Daisy Mae: Daisy Mae shakes her head a couple of times then says, AAAAWWWW… Mom Crystal your so sweet, special and unique in your own way too. It’s so hard to believe  after 14 years you steel that way about me. What happens when I become 15 years old?

Mom Crystal: Well of course I still feel that way about you. Let me tell you something Daisy Mae. When your Mama dropped you off at my family and I’s house and she told you to meow at the top of your lungs as loud as you could so we could here you. I remember that night so well. You see Daisy Mae, I was working Evening/Night shift that day. When my Mom and Dad picked me up that night, they told me about this kitten they heard. Finally we got home. They told me, go out of the garage and see if you can hear a kitten meowing and following the meowing. So that’s what I did. What I found at the end of all that meowing was the tiniest Kitten that could fit in the palm of your hand. Of course the first thing we did was fed you. Then we rescued/adopted you into our home and made our home your furever, loving home. The funny part is, your Mama came around our house for a few days until she was sure that her baby was in a loving, furever home.

As for what happens when you become 15 well… we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. Daisy Mae, just enjoy 14 for now.

Daisy Mae: OK Mom Crystal, I’ll enjoy  year 14. Mom Crystal, I LOVE YOU!!

Mom Crystal: I LOVE YOU TOO DAISY MAE!!

Daisy Mae: Hey readers, Thanks for stopping by and celebrating my Birthday and Birthday month with me. i no we really appreciate it. We’re so glad you stopped by. 

Daisy Mae And Mom Crystal: We love when our wonderful readers stop by and read our posts and we want to remind you all that when looking for a pet, DON’T SHOP, GO TO YOUR NEAREST SHELTER AND RESCUE ADOPT A PET!! WHEN YOU DO, YOU DO US AND YOURSELF A HUGE FAVOR.

A Tribute To Tigger

Hi everyone, I write this post with a heavy heart and tears in my eyes. You’re probably wondering why? My last Cat who was a rescue and a Grey striped Tabby Cat and Daisy Mae’s “Sister” not from the same litter left us 5 years ago on Sept. 11, 2015. I miss her daily. I thought to myself what would be an appropriate tribute to celebrate Tigger’s life then it was like a light bulb going off. I decided since it would be 5 years this year, I would ask someone who I knew who did drawings if they did commissioned drawings meaning do you do drawings for occasions if people ask? To my delight the answer was yes. So because I had never got a picture of both my cats together I asked if she could do the drawings from both pictures she said she could. I was delighted. The woman and artist who was so kind to do my drawing was Carolina Russo. She has a blog and yes she even has her own store on Etsy. In fact, she’s having a Labor Day sale at her Etsy store now.  Her website address is at the following link: Yesterday After and her website where she sells her jewelry and art is at the following link: Etsy Shop  . I do hope you go, check it out and possibly buy something. I have 2 of her drawings and I love them.

The Picture below is a Tribute to my Rescue Cat who was a Grey Striped Tabby Cat who I named Tigger. Who’s Tigger? My last Cat who passed away on 9-11-2015. My family and I and Daisy Mae loved her very much. The picture is of the drawing I had drawn as a tribute to celebrate and honor Tigger. It’s 5 years this year and I still miss her. I took the picture on the dark brown recliner. As you can see, The dark brown from the recliner chair makes the picture look good. The Picture is Below. Daisy Mae is the Cat lying down on the bed and Tigger is the Cat on the bed  looking at the camera.

2 Daisy Mae Scares

QUEEN DAISY MAE SHOWING OFF HER GREY AND WHITE BELLY.

Hi and Welcome Everyone, if you have owned a cat, dog or any type of pet for that matter then you probably know what I’m talking about. So what is a Daisy Mae scare you ask? Glad you asked. A Daisy Mae scare is basically a cat scare where you almost lose you cat or pet. Daisy Mae is my cat’s name and almost lost her twice this past week so this post was almost a different type of post. But the first time you think you are going to lose a pet you get so nervous you think you might pass out. However, you don’t.

DAISY MAE AS A KITTEN LAYING ON MY TONY STEWART FLEECE BLANKET ON ME.

You have to understand my family and I have had Daisy Mae from around 4 weeks old. My little Daisy Mae has turned into a 13 year old kitty cat. So that’s a Daisy Mae scare in a nutshell. So all you have to do is if you’ve had one of these scares  you can call them (your pet’s name) scare. Most pet owners know what I’m talking about.

TIGGER

ANGEL QUEEN TIGGER ON MY BED WITH MY WHITE STUFFED CAT AND MY WHITE STUFFED POLAR BEAR.

If you’re looking at the title Title Tigger and wondering who is that? Tigger was my last cat. None of you got to meet my Grey Striped Tabby cat Tigger because she died on 9-11-2015 and I didn’t start blogging until January 2017.

In a nutshell, my family and I rescued Tigger out of a very bad situation she was in all through her kittyhood. She didn’t like men for whatever reason. I’m happy to say she eventually made friends with Daisy Mae and in the end made friends with my Dad too.

I wanted to do a tribute to my last cat Tigger who was a Grey Striped Tabby Cat. Tigger died on September 11, 2015 and this year marks the fourth year death anniversary. 

I miss Tigger daily as well as think of her daily. I look for a whole lot of Butterflies on 9-11 to celebrate her life.

I wanted to do do something special for Tigger so I wrote a poem for her.

TIGGER  

TIGGER you were a beautiful 

And smart Grey Striped Tabby

Cat that had a bad kittyhood 

But despite that you survived

Because my family and I took

You in. You hid in my bedroom

Closet when we first got you

But as you adjusted you came

To love us just as we loved you.

Tigger, you had this cute little

Heart On your nose. OH how you

Liked To play with string with a

Feather on it and OH did you ever

Like laying on wrapping paper too.

I even remember how you liked to be 

Under our feet all the time.  I still

Laugh and chuckle when I think of

How You kicked at  your litter all

Over the place when you were

Doing your kitty cat business.

Your eyes were dark with yellow

Around them. Even though it’s been

4 years since you earned your

Wings and crossed over the Rainbow

Bridge. When a Monarch Butterfly

Shows up with its beautiful wings. I

Know when I see A bunch of

Butterflies, A flock of birds,

Hummingbirds staying together as if

To say I’m here for you and don’t be

To upset or mad because it rains or

Snows. You see the Rain and the

Snow are your friends not to

Mention when it Rains and Snows

That’s me Angel Tigger sitting on

Your shoulder and saying, I’m here

To make sure You and the Family are

OK. I love you very much

Tigger and always will.

You left pawprints on my heart!!

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day 2019

Welcome my wonderful readers. You may call me crazy after what happened to me today. You see when I woke up this Morning, I had this strange feeling. It was very strong. My mind was racing which is something because I’m not a Morning person. Then after breakfast, I saw 2 humming birds just there on my deck. Then after I read on several blogs it was Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day 2019. I knew what that strong feeling was. I was remembering my cat Tigger. 

None of you probably remember my Tabby Cat Tigger but may have read about her. You see, sadly Tigger earned her wings and went to Rainbow Bridge on 9-11-2015. A bitter sweet day. Bitter because my cat died and sweet because 9-11 would have been my Grandmother’s birthday if she hadn’t passed away a few years earlier. I miss my Grandmother and my rescue Tabby Cat Tigger. There are 2 pictures of my rescue Tabby Cat Tigger below. She’s now over the Rainbow Bridge and playing and teaching all the other animals that come after her.

A Strange Funeral

We all go to funerals in our lives for our family and friends. We also hope and pray that our children don’t die before us but life doesn’t always happen that way. 

I just recently went to a funeral since my Aunt died. This funeral was like no other. The funeral was held in the  dark since there was no electric. Toward the end of the end of the funeral and before the luncheon the lights came back on. The food had to heated up elsewhere. When I asked my parents why there was no electricity? They said, the power company had scheduled a power outage during the time of the funeral. When you don’t know it’s scheduled, it is really strange and weird.

What’s the strangest funeral you’ve been to? What’s the strangest thing that has ever happened to you? Let me know.

Eileen’s Critters And My First Sunday Selfie Well Sort Of

I have a special Eileen’s Critters And Sunday Selfie this week. On June 10, 2019 we got a picture of the our first Fawn of the 2019 season. Sorry if the picture is dark but Mamma Deer isn’t brave enough yet apparently to bring her baby out in daylight. I had to share this with you. 

After a drink I think Mamma Deer is going to show her baby the ropes on how to go about posing for Sunday Selfies. For the first time I think this little Fawn did pretty good. Honestly, I think the Fawn is more interested in getting a drink. Mamma Deer is multitasking. She’s eating and posing for her Sunday Selfie and for Eileen Critters.

FIRST BABY FAWN OF 2019.

What Mother Means To Me

Poem Written By: Crystal Stewart

Poem Written On: 5-4-2019

WHAT MOTHER MEANS TO ME

The word Mother means unconditional

Love. The word Mother means helper

Without expecting anything in return.

The word Mother means my personal

Angel here on earth. The word

Mother means happiness and 

Encouragement. The word Mother

Means you overlook all flaws.
