Theme Day: Animals

Today, February 1, 2012, is Theme Day across the CDPB (citydailyphotoblog) community. If you look very carefully, you'll spy one of our kitties hiding out in one of her favorite spots, my leather backpack. Good old Molly. I still recall the day we walked into the Animal Refuge League shelter in Westbrook and after opening her cage, she crawled up on my brown, barn jacket and found a home forever. She's one of a long line of felines, who have graced our home and hopped into our laps on cold winter eves. As you can see, she's never met a paper bag, a backpack or a box she hasn't made a 'home' in for a few hours of sleep. We think she's a bit unique, because she 'talks' to us constantly, whether we are petting her or not. When J- was off to college in the Midwest, she'd 'talk' to him on the phone in her own, unique, meow-purr language. Even a random touch at 4:30 in the morning on seeing her, will send her off purring, 'talking' and rubbing for attention. She certainly makes a lot of noise, more than any other cat we've had. As if to say, "Good morning. Where have you been? What's for breakfast?" She's a fine lady... that good ol' Mollycakes!
