Feline Friends



"The smallest feline is a masterpiece." --Leonardo da Vinci


I share my life with two very different cats. Theodore is an impressive Orange Tabby with a sweet disposition. It's hard to believe this 16-plus pound cat was once a little ball of fur and paws that fit in just one hand!

Cleo is a dainty Tortoiseshell and is half the size of Theodore. Even though she's older, Cleo is like a kitten always wanting to play. When the two of them get into tussels, Cleo always ends up on the bottom! Don't ask me to decide which one is more beautiful - I can't. But I do think their colors compliment each other perfectly!

For those who don't understand cats, let me just say this. Cats are quiet affection. Cats are independence within a loving relationship. Cats teach us to live in the moment. If you're tired, sleep. If you're bored, play. If you're curious, explore. And above all, if you're happy, purrrr.

What beautiful portraits of your two kitties. So sweet how Cleo fits in the bowl. When I was growing up we had a kitty named Cleo. :)

Oh I just love my cats so much. I have two, and like yours, they are totally different! Lily is small and very independent. Spooky is my big fat love baby! :)
