Steven's Feline Friday

"I love cats because I enjoy my house, and little by little, they become it's visual soul."

-Jean Cocteau

Each week my pal Steven, sets aside Friday to honor our feline friends. A cat makes a home doesn't it? This week, Steven asks the question..."How did your cat get it's name." LOL. My kitty Elvis was born with his name, LOL, I know this because I was there when he made his grand entrance into the world. He was born at 4:30 PM on April 27th, 1997. I knew in an instant that he was special. Out of a littler of six kittens, he was the only black and white one to be born. :) And while he was very tiny, his markings were such that we could tell right off that he kinda looked a little like Elvis Presley. LOL.

In the days and weeks that followed, he did silly little kitten things that made it even more apparent, such as the fact that while all the other kittens were all lying about, Elvis was always up and moving and shaking his hips. LOL. When he walked he had a funny little way of shaking his hips. Next we noticed what a little charmer he was. I have seen folks meet him for the first time and then fall in love with him. He is a charmer. Now when it comes to food...well...we won't discuss that! LOL. Above is a picture of him in the sweater he got for Christmas. He is cuddling up with me to enjoy a nice Cheese Fondue I made in bed the other night. He is fun try new recipes out on! ROFL. :)

If you want to come along and play Steven's Feline Friday, all you have to do is write and entry and post a photo of your kitty then drop by Steven's blog and leave him a link. The question for the week is, "How did your cat get it's name?"

And quite a handsome fellah he is,too!

Well, of course I have no cat (I cough just thinking about them!), but I just wrote about the cuteness of puppies and kitties, and related issues. Serendipity! - Karen

I love cats. They're my favorite pet. And by some cruel irony, I'm allergic like you would not believe. Oh well. Such is life.
