ADOPTED after one year at our local shelter.
I wish you all the love and comfort that you so deserve, sweet little Belle with your new family.
I wanted to show you this picture but I can't take it out of the frame without damaging it so this is the best I can do. It hangs in my kitchen but presently my kitchen is being painted so everything is scattered.
I just love the boldness of this kid and his haircut...ha! someone really did use a bowl.
Cali joined me in the kitchen late tonight. We talked about 'displaced anger' that showed up last night in Joey when Cali surprised him from behind. (Yes, I talk to my cats) She is needing more attention these days because her body is old and sometimes achy. She requests more contact with me and still purrs like a kitten. She has never liked being carried for more than a minute but loves to lean in to your body and rest. She is a cat full of character and is the last of the 5 that grew up with my children. Our older cats were adopted recently as senior cats but Cali came to us as an abandoned kitten and we enjoyed raising her. She is very special to me now and I love when she joins me for tea late at night.
Cat-tip-for-the-day=^..^=Displaced anger in cats
Displaced anger in cats is 'accidental aggression'. When a cat is startled or is surprised with a situation suddenly it will strike out at the closest cat (or person) in its reach. If two cats who normally get along see another cat enter the room or approach a window one of the cats may lash out at the other cat even though they are best buddies. It is uncontrollable aggression and is not planned.
Face is healing (thanks Kathy for the advice) but I won't be out in public for another day except to care for kitties. It is still swollen and red and I live in a small town and it doesn't take much to start rumours so I'll just lay low for a day more:)
Have a great Tuesday
