I am one of those people who is interested in happiness. I have not always been "happy" & it is a state of being that I really have come to value as I have gotten older. I especially like the idea that "things" do not make you happy. That leaves me asking : what does make one happy? I do believe some are lucky enough to be born happy. Others have to search & learn. I am not a researcher but I do observe & watch & that leads me to this nature / nurture belief. Sandi is born happy. She is delighted-all of the time. Today she found this small patch of sunshine and basked in it. And the look on her face, her body language -all said-I am happy, happy, happy. I watch her as the years pass & wish I could be as happy as she is.
On my walk several days ago I spotted this. Passing the poor guys photo again today I stopped & snapped it thinking I'd post it in hopes of helping out. If you live in Queens, N.Y. and you've seen this guy, have him phone home. I guess these kinds of "LOST" signs strike a cord. If my guys went missing-in winter-I know I'd be broken hearted.
Each cat has it's own favorite toy. For Sandi, it is her "bouncie ball" -it came with her cat bed . She plays fetch with it ,picking it up by the tinsel like strands and carrying the ball back to us to throw again & again.
We had more snow today so we all stayed in. Ely slept, I did paper work & Nicki & Sandi lounged around. I love this photo because of all the surrounding COLOR! The yellow and orange flannel blanket came from my Grandma Claire's house.It's very toasty which is probably why Nicki likes it so much!
One of our owners thinks it is both cute & fun (not to mention fulfilling for us...) to dress up & he is forever buying us awful things to wear. As you can tell from these photos, we HATE to be dressed up. If it were not for the understanding & love we get from our other owner we would have plotted his end a long time ago.
This is the story of Nicki & Sandi. We are sisters even if we do not look like it! We used to be VERY small. We are not so small any more. Especially Sandi who loves to eat almost as much as she loves attention.
