Little Evee

This photo was taken three years ago. This cat, named Evee has long since moved away with her family.
I will never forget her as this is my favorite Just Cats photo.
I started capturing 'cats in windows' two years ago but just now realized that Evee was my very first 'cat-in-window'. She was the perfect little cat. We spent many hours bonding as I brushed her thick, gold coat and dangled one of many of her favorite little mice to bat. Evee shared her home with Ando, a male tabby who was spectacular in his own right. Her family often travelled over-seas so our time together would be for two weeks at times. Evee's favorite thing for me to do was to snuggle up with a book and her tucked up close and just be together.
I was so sad to hear about the up-coming move but it goes with this job. I suppose you would have to actually do what I do to understand how strong the bonds become between you and your clients' cats. They become like a little family to you all of their own. I often think about her and hope she & Ando are healthy and happy.

I'm waiting for Spring.

  1. What a sweetie and we can see that you have a good friendship by that photo, not every cat would let you do that.

  2. I like your cats, they do become friends on their terms of course, they never do anything they don't want to, I have two and a stray that just eats here.

  3. You are definitely a Cat Whisperer! Love the photos, XOXO

  4. What a little sweetie! I am sure you will miss her!

    PS I am waiting for spring too! LOL!

  5. Evee looks very much like our cat Trixie. Visiting with you from Catherine's blog. We have 5 cats and one mini dachshund!

  6. Ahh what a lovely image, and what a lovely cat.

  7. I can see she is your sweet heart : )
    Hugs to you, Deb

  8. Lots of joy in that photo, Deb.

    We like the sound of "vibrant" and "pastel" better than just saying calico or dilute calico as they are called here. Dilute sounds like it has sort of a negative quality about it.
