And here we are: a blog post that is easy on the eyes, short and filled with feline sweetness. Wednesday was a Kat-Krazy Day. That is to say, I met three fine cats and fell in love with each one.
The first cat I encountered is Marilyn’s newly adopted calico cat, Callie. All we know about Callie’s history is that she has gone from home to home, owner to owner. In her new home, Callie is loved, loving, and is already feeling very comfortable. The home is the real deal! Callie is just about as sweet as they come. I am so happy for my friend and for Callie. Our pets are an incredible source of unconditional love.
Then I came across a cat that looked almost identical to my cat of almost 18 years, Little Bear! There were two big differences in the two cats. This one’s name was Georgia and she was a SHE! And she is polydactyl! That is to say, Georgia has 6 toes on her front paws. Other than those two physical differences, I felt I was with my cat again. As soon as I saw Georgia, I dropped my bags to the sidewalk and started taking photos and petting her.
OK, so the photo above is my new feline friend Georgia and the photo below is my old cat Little Bear…they are practically identical, n’est-ce pas??
And if you have never seen this before, have a look at the link below. The link is a pdf with another photo of Little Bear and poems Rick wrote for him. Little Bear was most regal and the subject of so many poems: link
And lastly, a magical moment meeting Rebecca’s cat, Axel. He was snuggled in his tree perch indoors, basking in the sun, dozing on and off. His sunlit fur against the dark blue wall made for the best cat portrait ever:
