Through A Kitty's Eyes Of Love

~ A cat's eyes are windows enabling us to see into another world.~
Irish Legend

There is always a cozy spot to be found in this house if you are a kitty. Snacks to munch on, cool water to sip. A loving hand to pet and scritch, a soft voice to speak words of endearment and flattery.

Cricket gazes out the bay window and I wonder what she thinks and what she really sees.
It comforts me to know that she and my other kitties do not have worries or cares because I am here for them. Do they know that I need them as much as they need me? (Well, would a cat ever admit they really need anyone?) ;)

Sometimes people in my family tease me about my love for cats and my lack of "a life". I try not to let it bother me though. When one spends every day at home, in a certain level of physical discomfort and a little melancholy sometimes, you appreciate those who are truly there for you.

Right now Billie is next to me. I have a slight fever and I'm due for some pain reliever and a nap after I get some chores done. Between typing I am petting her and asking her what she wants for a snack. She purrs every time I touch her. See, she appreciates me too.

I will try to visit all of my nice bloggie friends as much as I can. I hope everyone has a relaxing weekend!

Come on Billie, let's get some nom noms! (^;^)

Caring for your fuzzy family is proof of a tender heart.

Lorianna, giving love to animals is one of the very best kinds of life, so ignore that silly teasing. Billie is such a sweet companion, she wants to be petted and this makes you rest. Can't rush about and pet her at the same time hehe! I guess pretty Cricket is thinking "hey, this is the best kind of home a kitty could have"

I hope you have a peaceful and comfortable weekend loving on your darling cats.

My mom wants to know if she can be a kitty in your house!

Lorianna, we sound so much alike. I am at home too and often have that melancholy as well, though pills help. It was very difficult for me to be away for my 2 days of "rest" and be gone from my little loves. Home is where I want to be, and while a retreat sounded great in my mind, I missed my home and furry friends (ok, husband too somewhat), my books and my own bed and that was all I could think about. -Lynne

You do have a life. It's filled with cats :) That can be the best medicine too! You care for them and love them and get it returned in spades!!!!! How lucky is that!!!

I hope you have a great weekend too! It's a sign of a loving spirit to be so loving and kind to animals. And that's a fact!

WE love our fuzzy family here.
Hubby and I have two silly babies, one is old and feisty and very adorable, the other (Pierrokins) is a bit dimwhitted and fearful too but very silly and lovable.
I hope you have a nice week-end.
Enjoy the warm-er weather for a while... it is not going to last.
60 here?!!

You are a very good mom.

Lorianna said...

Oh, you are all so sweet! Thank you so much! You and my kitties are the dearest friends one could ever have. :)

I also think that giving a loving home to kitties, or other animals, is the best kind of life to have. Enjoy your weekend basking in the love of your furry friends.
