A Photo A Day For 6 Months: Day 20~ Cats

"Your cat will never threaten your popularity by barking at three in the morning. He won't attack the mailman or eat the drapes, although he may climb the drapes to see how the room looks from the ceiling."
 ~Helen Powers
I am really tired tonight, so this will be a brief post. Some days are good ones, some aren't so good. Everything usually revolves around the amount of sleep I get. I didn't sleep well last night, so, as a result, I am tired tonight. Tomorrow Alan and I will be spending the day in the garden, that always makes for a good day.
 Now... that kitty you see above...

That boy is Dylan. He is my boy. We adopted each other, and two closer soul mates could not possibly be. Dylan loves his daddy... Alan... but I am the only one allowed to put him in his kennel when it is time to go see Dr. B. . Dylan lost his kitty mom, when she was hit by a car, while moving her litter of kitten across a busy street. I am not sure if Dylan saw what happened, but I know he was one scared little guy when he was rescued from under the porch of an abandoned home. His foster mother said he had trembled the whole weekend she had him, and the minute I picked him up he stopped shaking for the first time. We looked into each others eyes, and we both instantly knew we needed each other to survive this world.

And Here You See Hendrix...

We brought Hendrix into our home 8 days before we found Dylan, so Hendrix is the official big brother. And Hendrix takes his duty seriously. I told Hendrix... "This is your baby, now you take good care of him.." And he does. He keeps him in line, and cuddles him at night. He lets him eat first, use the box first, and doesn't intrude when Dylan plays DILLY BALL with Alan. Alan bonded with Hendrix the minute he walked out of his kennel at Dr. B's. He walked over to Alan and climbed up to his neck and gave him a big kiss. Next he made his way back down to the table, and over to me, where he made sure I knew I was loved to. And everyday, he comes over to me, at least once a day, and pats my face with his soft little paws.
Both boys have very different ways of doing things, but both seem to have a sense of humor.  Their daily hijinks keep us laughing, and isn't that just the best medicine?

Hi Carly -
It's been a long time. You're boys sure have grown!! They're just precious. I have two kitties now too ... Mr. Gibbs who is a Tuxedo cat, and Hank who is White with splotches of Tabby.

I hope that you have a great time in the garden ... Glenda
