Photo Challenge……Beloved

I was reminded again this afternoon of how beloved our little cat is in our household.  She needed to have some teeth removed, so I took her to the vet yesterday afternoon (and she meowed plaintively all the way), and picked her back up this afternoon.  The vet said she was a “model patient” and didn’t give any trouble.  I knew she wasn’t herself on the trip home, when she was mostly silent.  I sure missed her at home last night.  Herewith, some of my favorite photos of the owner of our household, The Lady Kikyo.

I don’t think she knows that the vase is supposed to be a cat.  This is a high plant shelf in our living room.

Friend..ly Photo Challenge

My friend likes to sit on my lap, whenever I’m sitting down.  She leaps very quietly onto the chair or bed I happen to be using, and purrs loudly to get my attention.  My lap is always warm when Kikyo the Aristo-Cat is on my lap.

She also likes to snuggle up to her glass “friend”, which is on our high plant shelf.  It takes a long leap across the gap from the banister on the stairs, to the top of the coat closet, for her to get there in the first place, which is quite remarkable.  I’ll bet she doesn’t even know that the glass vase is supposed to be a cat!

And then, she sprawls out in the most undignified posture I’ve ever seen!

Weekly Photo Challenge, Relax

Hakan just HAD to use a cat to illustrate the Daily Post Relax theme.  When you are owned by a cat, you find lots of occasions of your owner relaxing…that’s what cats do!

If that’s not relaxed, nothing is!  Kikyo, who owns the place, likes to stretch out in the sunshine near the sliding door to the back yard.

This is where she spends much of her time while we are at work during the day-her window perch in our bedroom.

And, finally, we are relaxing together-Kikyo likes to stretch out on my legs while I read.

Quote of the Day

This was the “Opening Shot” in today’s Daily Shot newsletter from Ricochet.

“Of all God’s creatures, there is only one that cannot be made slave of the leash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve the man, but it would deteriorate the cat.” ― Mark Twain

Witness, our Owner, Her Highness the Lady Kikyo.
