The Eyes Have It

Do you ever look at your furry babies and just know that they are loving you with their eyes?

This is Mario, he's almost 12, he was a stray that we found under a house we were renovating when he was just a few weeks of age. Now, weighing in at 14 lbs he's a big 'ol boy, but he is the sweetest, gentlest kitty we've ever had. 

He follows me around the garden and everytime I say his name, he looks at me and I just know.....

May we make the people in our lives feel as special as our loving pets make us feel every day.

What a cute fur baby. I have two cats that follow me around to and if I say TJ's name she comes running and wants to be held! So sweet.

I use to have a big cat that looked
just like that when I was growing up. I use to talk to him all the
time and I really think he knew what I was saying. Your cat is
beautiful. Did you find a friend
for Zeek yet. I bet your fury friend and Zeek get along just fine.:O)

Yes, I couldn't agree more!

Or as the saying goes, help me to be the person my dog thinks I am.

Hugs,

Hi LaurieAnne! Thank you for visiting my blog and the kind words of encouragement! I feel honored, coming from someone as talented as you. I love your blog and your shop!

Your cat is adoreable! I have a few of my own (4 to be exact!)and I know what you mean. They seem to be able to tell us just how they feel without a word spoken. ~Jo

I love the cute little pink mouth! My fat limpy Spencer has a mouth like that too. I have three cats and all were either strays or throw-aways and I love them all! We also have a throw-away dog and now are raising 6 chicks. What joy they bring to our lives! Thank you for your rescues!

Oh , I miss my cat so much---he died 3 years ago--and I've never gotten another one. I travel with my hubby to see the kids and grandkids--so I know I wouldn't want to board him when we go. But---oooh---I miss having one sooooo much.

Jennifer said...

hate to break it to you, but I saw the same exact look on my kitty's face last night while he was watching a mama wren feed her little babies in one of our birdhouses....

but I agree, he has a very sweet face. I would love to be able to get into their little minds and feel what they feel..
