It's time for cats!
This one is Wilson. When I first met Wilson he was a wee baby and while he was friendly, not entirely sure of himself around other people.
Today Wilson is a large friendly tabby who adores people, is very sure of himself, and ranges his neighbourhood as if he is the king of the kitties. He usually makes me feel most welcome and sleeps on my bed when I stay overnight with my friend
Below - the lovely white boy is Cash... another friendly fellow who loves to sit on my lap when I visit my friend, and who accompanies Wilson on his rounds outside occasionally. These two boys are beloved companions of one of my dear friends. My friends partner passed a few years ago, most unexpectedly, and the cats always remind me of him...a loving and kind man who adored these cats. There is another cat - Paco - a true Siamese who is so shy that it's only after several years of visiting that I get to see him, staring at me from a doorway before he silently disappears. And there was another Siamese in this family - Maui, but he, poor boy, was a nervous wreck as some animals are...and he is now in critter heaven, waiting for his buddies I figure.
Cats are fascinating creatures who, unlike dogs, can take or leave humans, depending on their personalities.
Hope it's a great day for you and for any cats you come across.
