Our Cats, for LKD

This is Topaz, a rather exotic beauty with a gem on her forehead. She is indomitable. If the day ever came when she did not do exactly what she wanted when she wanted the world would stop.

This is JoJo, a skittish athlete with an eating disorder--she eats too much. She and Topaz love to skirmish, sometimes leaping up into the air at the same time and colliding. We thought of calling Topaz "Cato" because she usually iniates the fights, as in the Pink Panther movies.

The cats are a welcome distraction from myself.

  1. Oh, my goodness. They're both quite lovely.

    I love the "gem" in the middle of
    Topaz's head. I've never seen anything like that.

    And JoJo. Geez. I've been wanting to get a little dog forever and name him JoJo (the dogfaced boy).

    Thanks so much for posting these photos, CE.

    Cats ARE a welcome and wonderful distraction from the self and its woes and world-weariness. When I'm feeling blah or low, Bob and Elmo really lift me up. They won't tolerate me sitting around and moping.
