Great pov of Lucky Boy and the flowers, Pom. Excellent composition, dividing the dark and bright halves of the shot. That boy WAS lucky, being taken care of by you. And I know he gave as good as he got.
Hope you enjoy your weekend.

Good Morning Ladies :)))) Thank you so much! Lucky Boy was the greatest kitty. He was smart, well behaved, funny, and really naughty when he felt to be. He knew all the buttons!!

Mare, it was really tricky lighting and it's entirely out of focus except for his little nose! Perfect! :))) I was so happy with the results. I hadn't had the Nikon for long at that time.

Thank you all again. I will be back to visit tomorrow. Today we have family from the Netherlands flying in!!! :D

-Laura

Hi Canadian Kin.......wonderful capture and lovely story with it! Had indoor kitties for years....in New York City you don't want your pets out and about without protection. Seattle was the same, except there was more green grass & trees (LOL).....no children of fur right now...maybe down the road, but while traveling I'd miss them too much. Have a great day, Laura!

Hi Sherran. Thank you! We did have a good visit. Unfortunately she brought the flu with her and we all got it. (Cough, cough, sneeze, blow)... :/ Oh well! It ws great seeing her.

SSKiki, I am so glad you got to meet Lucky and Pookey and Fangy. Our pets in this home are our babies, as you know. I still cry any time I try and tell a story about them. I'm so grateful to still have Fangy. :) And very grateful to have you too! xoxo

Hi Sister Chrissy! Our smiling Sister! :) I am just starting to be able to look at photos of Lucky and Pookey and smile and not sob. Thanks for the visit. :)))

Hi Terry, Yes, he sure did have a long life. And Happy too. He was a natural at "happy"..he was also "bossy, smart, clever, hilarious, loaded with antics, and deep love for all that were close to him. Amazing cat and we actually considered him a dog. He'd walk on a harness, did tricks (when he felt in the mood to co-operate), and LOVED attention. He got it too. Sweet baby. I miss him a lot. :(

*

Hi Texas Gal! Wow! You have lived all over! What a life! Yes. Traveling is the most difficult but hey! Now that you have your TT, (Travel Trailer) you could easily bring a little pooch with you! :D That is our future plan. Once Fangy passes and we travel a bit. We love having a pet. They are more than precious.

Thank you all! Great to see you.
SSSLala, Laura, Lulu, et al :)

Sorry for your loss of Lucky Boy I am glad you gave him a great loving life indoors. My kitty Kemah is still very sick in the Vet ICU on IV's and feeding tube. I hope she makes it.

Oh no. Emile. So sad. I know exactly where you are in this and your heart must be very heavy not knowing.

We will be thinking about you and your sweet Kemah. What a beautiful name and very original. Likely just how Kemah is too. :) Very individual. I hope she makes it too.

Animals lovers know great joy and great sorrow. For sure.

Thanks for visiting,
Laura :)
