She clawed her way into my heart and wouldn't let go.  ~ Missy Altijd

This has become her morning routine. She wakes up reluctantly, making displeased noises, when I stir in the morning. Then she lies there, snuggled in the blanket, watching me get ready (and getting great pleasure, I’m sure). Then she climbs across the dressing table and goes behind the curtain and perches there on the ledge for a while, for reasons that are totally imcomprensible to me. And she does this nearly eveyr day! She sits there for a while, like a bride awaiting her ceremony. Then, once she’s done with her stint behind the curtains, she emerges sleepily and goes back to the blanket again!

Sigh, cats. Don’t even try and understand them. Just love them and let them be 🙂

I collect cat quotes, so if you ever come across any, please do send them to me! Here are some of my favourites:

Cats are smarter than dogs. You can’t get eight cats to pull a sled through snow. ~ Jeff Valdez

There is something about the presence of a cat… that seems to take the bite out of being alone. ~ Louis J. Camuti

If I tried to tell you how much I love my cats, you wouldn’t believe me – unless your heart is also meow-shaped and covered in stray fur. ~ Lexie Saige

And I simply love this one (it is also true :).

Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a purpose. ~ Garrison Keillor

    Not had the fortune of bringing up a cat so far, but will do so sometime surely. For now, could you please help me spread word on this?

  5. My cats give me two looks that plainly speak their minds.

    “Lady, please, I don’t have to do that, I’M A CAT!”

    “I think that you know what it is you can kiss!)

    And, if you have not guessed, my cats know that they are superior.

    Currently, I have a nine year old ebony female (formally known as a BLACK CAT) that I adopted five years ago. I adopted two feral kittens less than a year ago – and of course they are in my favorite color of cats – ebony, and ebony and ivory.
