chocolate eyes

I love chocolate. I love cats. Now, when you mix these two together, let's say a cat with chocolate eyes, I fall over dead.

The long-haired black beauty stared at me as I entered the home. I took one look at his eyes and stopped in my tracks. His eyes were solid chocolate brown in colour. So, he has this amazing black coat and black face and then these two huge, dark brown, almost black eyes. Everything about him is dark. I have never in my many years of caring for cats come across one with this colour of eyes.  I will try to capture this for you but so far he is one that likes to twirl around as soon as the camera comes out. Plus, I do get sort of lost in those eyes when I look too close.

This photo is of 'chocolate eyes' and his beautiful calico friend.
He is looking right at me. As you can see, his eyes blend into his face.

I do believe there are many seat-sales for tropical islands right now as the phone is ringing every day for cat-care. It's so exciting when I know I will be adding new cats to my weekly calendar. It's a wonderful time to meet new clients and pamper them the Just Cats way. Lots more to love this Valentine's Day.

The retired-guy made pancakes for breakfast this morning. Buckwheat Pancakes. Recipe coming.

I have picked up the knitting needles again. I'm not expecting much as it's been 30 years since I knit for my first child. I think to start, I'll make something flattering for Audrey. Perhaps a hat; a yellow hat, to match her eyes.

                                    "Does she know I have the OSPCA on speed-dial?"

Have a great day.
hugs, Deb


  1. Oh, my! Chocolate Eyes! Now, Audrey -- you will be the fashion queen! ;D


  2. Such beautiful cats and oh, that yellow teacup and that gorgeous yellow yarn.....I LOVED IT!!!

  3. I've seen brown eyes on rag dolls, I wonder if she has any in her? I am going to make pancakes for dinner tonight, just like my mother always did, but this morning...a special scone to celebrate Mardi Gras. XOXO

  4. Oh my I hope you can get a photo of those eyes! Audrey would look amazing in yellow!! hugs, Linda

  5. Ooh, I'm so excited! I can't wait to see this lovely kitty's face and extraordinary eyes! Never have I seen a brown eyed kitty. The dark eyes and dark fur must be exquisite.
    Audrey is a cat of a thousand faces, I tell you. She is so expressive! With your beautiful photos and delightful writing style, did you ever seriously think if a childrens book or books.

  6. Chocolate eyes, how astounding. It will be tough to get a good picture of that dark face. Gorgeous. And the calico is sweet too. You are so lucky to come in contact with all these wonderful cats.
    I love the shade of yellow you are knitting with. Audrey will be loverly! Though I thought Sierra was the clothes hound.
    We are having pancakes tonight. I do love buckwheat pancakes.

  7. Lovely photos ! The Robin returned here today so spring is just around the corner ! Yummy pancakes , we are having them for supper lol with sausages ! Have a good day !

    the critters in the cottage xo

    P.S. Chocolate and cats...but of course!! :)

  13. I am new to your blog. WOW, I love it. Love your prose, photos, and attitude toward our world. We have two kitties and there is such warmth in your sharing. TY.

  14. I think Audrey should have a dashing little cape to go with her hat.

    I can't wait to see those chocolate eyes, very unusual!

  15. I don't think I've ever seen real brown eyes on a cat, either. Please take a video of you putting a hat on Audrey. That will be fun!

  16. My mother never did that much knitting. More embroidery for her own pleasure, until arthritis ended that.

    My late aunt did a tremendous amount of knitting.
