See the chair Lucy is lying on? (Well, you can't actually see it much, but it's there.) Every morning now, Lucy is demanding that the chair be placed in front of the French door in the kitchen so that she can lie in the sun. She's learning that if she yells enough, I will do it. Spoiled? Yes. But she's 17, and a cat, not a child, so no terrible harm is being done by spoiling her, right? (well, other than the minor inconvenience of having to move the chair for her.) She has me well trained!
Love these quotes I found today on catquotes.com. They just seemed to fit.
- Cats seem to go on the principle that it never does any harm to ask for what you want. - Joseph Wood Krutch
- Like a graceful vase, a cat, even when motionless, seems to flow. - George F. Will
Every cat owner knows how true these are, don't we?
(P.S. I've had a few people ask how to get the vignette on the edges of the photo, as in this photo of Lucy. The vignette was done very simply with Picasa 3, a free program, with a click or two. Love Picasa for quick edits! (not affiliated, just love it.) (www.picasa.com)
Enjoy your day, and I hope you will find a bit of sunshine too.
