for Six Word Saturday

The fourth Monday means I get to chose the category for Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge.  Today I chose “Animals” and, unusually for me, I’m featuring a cat.  This beauty belongs to our younger daughter who rescued her from the streets of Philadelphia.  She reclines in queenly fashion in the new cat bed we got for her.  I’m not sure how much she uses it, as she like to sleep with our daughter, but in Goldilocks fashion, it’s just the right size for any time she deigns to use it.

I’m a dog person rather than a cat person, as those of you who’ve read my stories of our rescue pit bull foster care know and, when growing up, I was quite allergic to cats.  But our younger daughter recently took in a cat and when I visited, that cat won my heart.  Of course it helped that she obviously appreciated me and would come sit on my lap at every opportunity, showing herself to have discriminating taste!   (Cough, cough. Is that a catty remark?) Fortunately, I seem to have outgrown my allergy, although I took precautions and used nasal spray.

Here’s a photo of the fascinating feline in all her intense beauty.

Friends of our in Cleveland have a cat that loves to look out the door, the door that’s never open quite enough for her to go where she longs to go–outdoors. So whenever it’s warm enough for them to have the inner door open, she sits and looks. Whether it’s longingly or as a queen viewing her kingdom, only she knows.
