Ok -- I really don't like this photo of me. It's not very flattering, but I do like the thought behind it.

Mo is really quite helpful. NOT! He has a tendency to try to be in the photos in which I DON'T want him. And avoids the camera when I do.

If I have the computer open, he wants to lay on the keyboard.

He launches himself off of sore ribs.

He tears apart the furniture.

And wakes you up at 4am for breakfast.

And is completely and totally adorable (except when he's beating up Cinders.)

He is a wonderful friend and seems to always be doing something that makes me smile.

Thanks, Mo! I love you!

It takes a special kind of person to understand a cat... for sure you captured this.

There's this stuff you can get in a diffuser by a company called Feliway - they have a version that helps cats stop scratching things (and marking things, if they're doing that, too.) I was using it for Sir Thomas, who'd taken to marking a bit now and then and am now stuck with four refills of the stuff and the diffuser with no more use for it (Sir Thomas dropped dead on Thursday). I did notice he had quit scratching the furniture when I was using it, too. You might want to look into it.

Ah yes, I remember those days....

Cats are creatures of energy. Wherever your attention/energy is directed, there they are. Sitting on it :)

Animals are such a comfort; unconditional love and companionship. The lighting is wonderful and I think you look good, especially after what you have been through. Congrats on the HM.

Every cat owner can relate to your visual message! At least I do!
Like your indulgent smile - Congrats, Wendy!
