DAY 231 A Gift From Dusty

Hello there, Journal & Friends,

Sunday is my "day of rest", and I usually post favorite photos. I hope ya'll will indulge me as I post some pics of Dusty.

She gave me a gift yesterday... she did something that she has never done before, in the 16 months that we have been living here. 

Remember the post where Jim and I took her on her very first outing to the backyard, as a gift to her, and posted the pics? (HERE) 

Well, yesterday she managed to get herself up to the top shelf of the bookcase in front of my studio window. She nudged aside the little cobalt blue bottles with her bottom, til one fell onto the carpet... um... I moved the rest!

The window looks out onto that same backyard where she had her Big Adventure. She spent the entire day there on that shelf (with a lunch and potty break, of course) looking outside... watching intently... dozing... listening with twitching ears... more dozing... in fact, mostly dozing. :-)

She saw me get my camera, and "posed" for me. She gave me the gift of these wonderful photos that I will treasure. She has a sweet personality... quiet, dainty, decidely feminine and delicate in her manners. Very gentle. So I see this as her gift to me.

I hope you enjoy them, too (can click to enlarge). 

Treasuring these days with her,

Love the kitty pictures! Thank you for all of your comments on my blog; you are an encouragement to me and my few followers.

Dusty is just gorgeous. We use to have a cat names Dusty. She looked a lot like your Dusty.

Isn't it strange how girl cats are feminine? And boy cats are rowdy and boyish.

Thanks for the gorgeous pictures. So pretty with the lights and the blue glass.

Awww, she looks sweet. Cats rule. And, in so many ways. LOL

I have one right behind me and the other at my feet. Such wonderful companions. My best to Dusty and a holla from Nini and Kayla.

I love how sometimes instead of looking at us they look right into us. These are wonderful pictures!
