Precious Sweet Smokey!
Dearest Smokey, what an utterly beautiful dilute Tortie lady you are! You are so pretty with that soft-looking multi-colored fur, and you have just the sweetest face ever, with that cute orangey-pink nose and those lovely big pale-green eyes so full of the love and wisdom you have acquired over your eighteen years! Thank you for sharing all those great photos with us.! You are adorable in every one of them. How cute to see your dear Purrrson skritching your ears together there! I wish I could reach through the screen and across the country to Port Orchard, WA to pet you, and pet your critter housemates, too. I can't, of course, but I know your loving and beloved Purrrsons will pet you all for me .
And what an amazing story you have to tell! You came to your dear Purrrsons four years ago, so I wonder where you lived for all those earlier of your eighteen years. I hope it was comfortable and stress-free. Now you have the Purrrfect Furrrever home! You get lots of sleep on your dear Purrrson's bed or next to a nice warm heater, and you enjoy Temptations treats and catnip. You are lovable, laid-back, and lazy, and you purr like a chainsaw when you get those pettings you enjoy so much. You love your humans just fine, and you tell them when you want more petting and love. You and all your family members (even the other critters, we're sure) love each other dearly, don't you. What a delightful love-filled home you share!
Congratulations, darling Smokey, on being chosen today's Cat of the Day! We hope you and all your family and friends are enjoying a fine celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats, maybe even some more Temptations and catnip!
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.
