Petit Chat..

I love Juliet. Juliet is the new kitten to be adopted at my local vet clinic. She met me at the door and introduced herself, purring her little heart out and nestled into my arms like she had done it a thousand times.

Are we really sure the purring is coming from the kitty and not from our very own hearts? ~Emme Woodhull-B├Ąche, translated

Then she took me on a tour of her home...showed me where all the good-bugs-to-chase-lived...

There is no more intrepid explorer than a kitten. ~Jules Champfleury

...Where you can catch the morning sun; even though she explained it was afternoon now and I had missed the best part of the day..

There has never been a cat
Who couldn't calm me down
By walking slowly
Past my chair.
~Rod McKuen

...Where to hide and pounce on people walking in and out of the door..

Everything I know I learned from my cat: When you're hungry, eat. When you're tired, nap in a sunbeam. When you go to the vet's, pee on your owner. ~Gary Smith

The best place to nap..

Do you see that kitten chasing so prettily her own tail? If you could look with her eyes, you might see her surrounded with hundreds of figures performing complex dramas, with tragic and comic issues, long conversations, many characters, many ups and downs of fate. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

...To hide...

A cat is a lion in a jungle of small bushes. ~Indian Proverb


..To watch the mudlarks across the yard..

She clawed her way into my heart and wouldn't let go. ~Missy Altijd


Oops..

An ordinary kitten will ask more questions than any five year old. ~Carl Van Vechten


I love Juliet very much.

A beating heart and an angel's soul, covered in fur. ~Lexie Saige
