Cats are Cute

Cats are just plain CUTE. My Siamese girl is currently doing her toes on the dog bed. It's by the entry hall balcony. I hear a Mew Mew MEOW. The kind of mews that a cat does that lets you know that something is going on. Anyone with a cat knows what I'm talking about. I told her she was so cute. She just looked at me & mewed while still doing her toes. For those of you who don't know what 'doing your toes' is ... it's paws up & down ... all four of them while purring very loudly & mewing in a voice that only your Mom has heard. Not your normal mew that's for sure.

Jasmine is a Snowshoe Siamese. They talk a lot. She has four white paws and she uses them to bat at us ... literally. She either loves you or hates you with those feet of hers.

She is always hissing at someone usually her younger brother. The orange striped baby boy that is thrilled at the sight of her. He turns his head to look up the stairs & wa la ... there she is. He flops his tail & twitches his bottom & up he goes after her. Hissing & screaming is heard with me yelling for him to stop. Not that he does but I have to yell & he has to chase her. It's what we do.

It doesn't help her that he has extra toes on all four paws. He can stand up like a Kangaroo. Always waiting for her with one eye open. Even during naps. No wonder her favorites spots to nap are up in the towel closet or on the shelf. She looks down at me with those blue eyes ... cute as can be.

Riley is about the sweetest orange striped baby boy EVER. He purrs like a harley & mews at me with his whole heart. He loves me as much as a shy boy can. Not that he's feral but he still won't sit near me. He will allow me to pet him while he's on the couch or his scratching post. I can tell him how handsome he is & give him kisses but holding him ... that's not allowed. I'm working him up to it though. I will hold him for a few minutes while he wiggles and flys away. There is hope. At night he comes to my bedroom & sits on a blanket just a bit away from me. Not on the bed but it's his version of sleeping with me. In the morning he is in the window looking at the upstairs bird tv. If he's not there, he'll be under the bed or in the hallway on the old dog bed ... now a cat bed. My sweet baby orange boy ... I love him so !!!!

Your Jasmine is SO pretty--- almost as pretty as my Jasmine though they don't look alike at all, do they? My Jazzy likes to sleep in the towel cupboard too!
My Malley has more white on him than Riley but orange boys are the best for sure!

I have a boy, Forrest, that you saw in my Sunday post. He is much like your little man. Eight years old and just now is he weaving his tail around my legs when I am standing at the kitchen counter. Very shy but so affecionate. He'll let our a tiny, teeny, nearly inaudible meow and look up at my as if he is not sure he should be taking up my time. Like you, my little man is precious to my heart.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
