Jasmine Marie

It's Thursday.
Some blogs do a Thankful On Thursday.
I'll do that today too.

Jasmine Marie is my Silly Snowshoe Siamese.
I am so glad I found her that day.
I wasn't looking at her at all.
I saw an older Siamese who stole my heart.
I asked about her and was told
 she needed an only cat home.
That's not me obviously.
The lady said there was a quiet
 mixed Siamese in the corner.
There was my girl.
Sitting in the corner cube.
I asked if she talked and they said no.
I told the lady I would teach her.
I remember talking to her
 while I took her to my car.
She started talking that night.
Like she'd just been waiting
for the right person or moment.
She had a rough start.
Was on her last day at her first shelter.
Was taken to this shelter where I found her.
Now she talks and sings and sleeps on my pillow.
I will forever be thankful that I found her.
She has so much character.
Hisses at her brothers.
Purrs me to sleep almost every night.
Answers when I call her name.
My adorable girl.
Jasmine Marie.

What nice things you have to say about your Jasmine Marie. My Purnima isn't much of a talker, but she will purr to beat the band. And she is not afraid of no Pit Bull mix, neither.

She purred because you are the Cat Whisperer :) You spoke to her soul.

She is a beauty!! I don't think you have posted a good shot of her before!!! More! More!

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.
