Category Archives: Beautiful Cats
Mimzy has to be one of the most beautiful Scottish Folds ever born. She is a smoke calico giving her fur the appearance of silver tipping. She is stunning and I can never get enough of her beautiful face.
As a member of HeartsSpeak (check them out here), a group of artists working together to be a voice for the voiceless animals of the world, I am participating in a weekly inspirational post of images with a theme. This week the theme/inspiration is Friendship. I decided that my friendship post would be about friendship from afar. Skylar is a beautiful feral cat that walked by my house 3 years ago. I just happened to be looking out the window when I saw an animal walking down the road. I had to look very closely to even realize that the animal I was looking at was a cat. She was so thin she was barely recognizable as a cat. I started leaving food for her beside the road and everyday she came and gobbled it up. I started moving it closer to my house and everyday she continued to come and eat and quickly leave. She started gaining weight and began to look like the beautiful lady that she is. Eventually, I was able to sit outside while she ate. I talked to her and sat with her and tried for weeks to get close enough to touch her but it was not to be. After a few months I decided Skylar needed to go for a check up and a spay so I was able to trap her and get all her medical needs taken care of. I brought her back home and thought maybe if I could keep her in my bedroom and get her accustomed to people that she would let me touch her and we could be friends. I sat with her, read to her, talked to her for 3 months and it wasn’t to be. Skylar is 100% feral. She needed her freedom so I set her free. She has been coming back almost everyday since then to sit in the yard and last winter we built her a cat house. Her house has blankets inside and we put her food inside hoping she would get in it when it is cold. I don’t know if she has ever slept in it but she comes everyday to eat. She will sit under the cypress trees and I can sit within 6 feet and talk to her and she meows back making me think she truly understands that I am her friend and care about her. Our relationship is what I think of as true friendship. I care about her, she trusts me as much as she can. I respect her, worry about her, and make sure she is never hungry. It makes me happy seeing her healthy and content and I love her beautiful wild at heart soul.
This month on 2/10 I am posting 10 images of Churchill, a beautiful, sweet kitty that I recently photographed. Churchill is a flame point longhair gorgeous boy with stunning blue eyes. I hope you enjoy the images
