Our front room is upside down today as the retired guy strips some wood, paints and replaces windows. The cats are having a great time with the new 'scratcher/bed'. That was a good purchase.
I picked up a jar of apple butter today.
My son asked me at Easter, "Why does Annie always have 'the deer in the head-light' look?
Well, I'm not sure because she certainly is not a nervous nilly with people. She does have her worries, just like all of us, but they are few and albeit a bit strange. She is terrified of the sound of tin-foil being ripped. It sends her flying out of the kitchen Audrey can be sitting right next to her and not pay a bit of attention to the sound. Odd!
If I sneeze, she's gone.
She does have an 'old soul' look about her. She is only 3 this year but her eyes say she has lived through some difficult times and has a story to tell.
This photo shows the softer eyes on Annie.
She is my lap cat, my bed buddy, my shadow. She took it very seriously when I whispered in her ear that she would never be alone again. That she was safe now and would be loved. For those who are new to this blog, Annie came to me as a foster cat from our local shelter with 3 kittens in tow. They were only 2 days old. She had been abandoned in a house with other cats by horrid, irresponsible owners. Just left to die, I guess. She weighed 5 lbs, a bone-rack, and here she was trying so hard to feed these babies. It took some time to get her on her feet and looking well.
But that's behind her now and today she is a happy & a much healthier cat.
I'm going to send you over to another beautiful blog today. http://madeliefje-madelief.blogspot.ca/
