Snapshots From Paradise

The cat in this photo is my beloved Pippin, who reigned in my household from 1983 until her passing in early 1996.  Monet, I'm sure, you'll recognize.


This kitty is Grayson, another beloved and my first male cat.  He manifested himself from over Pippin's grave about a month after she passed.  He totally fell in love with Aja, the ginger kitty behind him in the photo.  Aja and Pippin overlapped in my life although they were ten years apart in age.  Aja passed in 2005 and Grayson left this life in 2006.  Aja and Grayson both overlapped with BeeGee for a year.  He's The One in my life, now.

Note to photo above:  About half of the artwork in this image is NOT mine, I make no claim to it.  They are the magazine photos, a copy of a magazine page and a cut-out kitty card.

A major cat person, obviously. Lovely photos. I've never had a cat, and probably never will, but I'm aware of their great potential.

It' nice to meet BeeGee's "ancestors." Lovely cats, all, I think. The kitty card cut out is adorable!

I am a lifetime cat lover, although I was unable to have cats in my life for a long time. But starting in 1986, there have been many, including Bubba and Shrekkie, my two lovely boys who will probably be my last two. Your family has been lovely, and I am sure they have been just as important to you as mine have been to me... owners of our hearts!

Lovely to see more photos of your home. Cats definitely leave pawprints on our hearts.
