Dearest Kissa, what a beautiful mature love-bug lady you are! Your Ragdoll coloring is gorgeous, with the fluffy white fur with the darker points and the sweet face with the lovely big blue eyes. Thank you for sharing all those great photographs with us! That is so nice to see you resting on your Dad's chest there. I wish I could reach through the screen and over to Redmond, WA to pet you, and to cradle you like a baby and rub your belly, too. I can't, of course, but I know your loving and beloved Purrrents will pet you and cradle you and rub you for me .
And what a nice story you have to tell! Fifteen years ago your dear Purrrents met you at the Humane Society, and thanks to them for choosing rescue. You and they adopted each other that day, and you came Home! Ever since then, you have been their baby girl, love muffin, and purr machine, nuzzling them and wiping your nose on their faces and meowing if you find they've left the room. You are quiet and speak with your paws to get attention, making sure breakfast is prepared and served each day at 4am. You have slowed down some over the years, but you are still the heat-seeker you've always been, going after warm spots on your Purrrents or places in your home. You and they love each other very much, don't you. What a wonderful love-filled home you share!
Congratulations, darling Kissa, on being chosen today's Cat of the Day! We hope you and your dear Purrrents and all your family and friends are enjoying a fine celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats.
I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
Death thought about it.
CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.
