Sea-Going Salty Sea Cat!
Dearest Salty the Sea Cat, what a gorgeous Turkish Van kitty you are! You are positively stunning, with that fluffy so-soft-looking white fur with the orange and brown patches here and there. And what a sweet face you have, with that cute pink nose and the lovely big pale-green eyes. Thank you for sharing those great photos with us! Each one shows your beauty so well, and how nice it is to look out the windows of your sailing yacht to see your view from home. I wish I could reach through the screen to ..wherever you and your boat are right now ..to pet you, and pet your Springer Spaniel playmate Pippa, too! I can't, of course, but I know your loving and beloved Purrrsons will pet you both for me .
And what a fascinating story you have to tell! You are a genuine Sailor Cat, living on a sailing yacht and sailing the waters around Britain. You are quite chatty and love to go on deck to watch the seagulls. You enjoy playing with balls and watching nature programs on TV in the winter. You have the Turkish Van trait of liking water, so you put toys in the water bowls and help with the washing up. When you were younger, you were a show cat attending GCCF shows and winning a title of Premier. You did not enjoy the shows, though, so you stopped attending. You and Pippa play and groom and snuggle together on the end of the bed. You and Pippa and your dear Purrrsons love each other very much, don't you. What a delightful love-filled home you share!
Congratulations, darling Salty, on being chosen today's Cat of the Day! We hope you and Pippa 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.
