I've been out of place for a bit, but I am hopeful that you'll appreciate this delayed post.  It's a tribute to Zoe, a little blind cat I never knew personally.  I became intrigued with the account of Zoe's life and her influence on so many people.  People wrote openly about their connection with Zoe; she radiated unconditional love to everyone.  As the old saying goes, "She stole everyone's heart."  Only this time it wasn't a cliche.

If you're ready to have Zoe and her human family tug at your heart strings, have a look at  the sites highlighting the magical Zoe.  You'll be treated to pics of the little girl and you'll come to feel that you knew her too!  Here's a hint about the devotion she inspired in her people.....Olga flew 2000 miles to say goodbye to her beloved friend.

Here are the three sites that feature tributes and accounts about the ONE AND ONLY Zoe. I'll be real and tell you I felt heartbroken and bereft when I read about her transition on January 25th, 2010.  But I would not have missed the chance to celebrate her life, so I want to share this little girl with you.

I would love to read your comments, after you have time to connect with the spirit of Zoe.

Now I'm A Three- Legged Cat

Of course I'm not actually a three-legged cat; I 'm a biped person myself.  But I am just enchanted with a beautiful tripod named Bella!  This gorgeous long-haired calico girl had to have one of her back legs amputated in November 2009. 

If you're interested in seeing how the beautiful Bella is adjusting, you've gotta go to http://NowI' for pics of  her in action.  There's even a video, so you can see some of the physical and emotional adjustments Bella is going through in the first months since her surgery.

The blog posts give you insight into the stress to Bella's human family, as they try to rehabilitate their newly handicapped pet.  Bella is making a good adjustment to her disability, but challenges are a reality.

Go check out Bella and her family.  You'll be glad you did....

First Post...Once Again

I actually created this blog 18 months ago.  Then I allowed myself to become overwhelmed by the whole concept of posting.  I ground to a halt after half a dozen posts, instead of just having fun with the whole thing.

So now I'm back again!  We'll see if I can put on my big girl pants and do this.  I gotta say that I got my courage up after following , just because this dapper Londoner makes it look effortless!  He is a computer literate cat, while I am rather a newbie.

In the meantime, have a look at Albert, his brother Tabby (mackerel tabby) and sister Ginger Tail (white body with red tail).  Albert is quite the historian, and he loves to give guided tours round his back garden.

When I learn how, I shall import some pics.  In the meantime, I hope you'll check them out at Albert's personal blog ....

A word of warning, Albert is a great fancier of prawns.  So you'll "hear" about them often.  (If you're an American, just imagine shrimp.)  You'd never guess this gorgeous guy started out life as a feral kitty!
