ABC Wednesday - C is for Cat - Cute and Cuddly

Today is ABC Wednesday - C is our letter to focus on.
I have chosen C for Cat - as Fluffy has been a member of our family for almost 18 years ( in 2 more months.)

I can remember when we got her - she was the runt of the litter and a wild little furball. She was an outside cat for most of her life - she hunted and caught many a bird, mouse or chipmunk. It has only been the past year that she has really slowed down.

These photos were taken this morning.


When she was younger she was my daughter's cat and slept with her and hardly ever came to me. Now, since my daughter has moved out, she jumps on my lap whenever I am at the computer or on the couch. She loves the attention now. And , I must say, I love the purring and warmth provided by her.

What a beautiful cat! Can't believe she's that old! How wonderful that she's still in such amazing shape! Terrific shots for the day, Beverley!

Those eyes are amazing. Runt or not, she's turned into a beautiful member of the family.

Blue eyes? I don't think I've seen a blue=eyed cat. She looks contented and centered!

What a great choice for C! I love that gorgeous girl :) Easily the best pet I've ever had (or will ever have).
Although her eyes aren't blue - they are the colour of the first pic. Must have been the way your flash was up close?

Oh she reminds me so much of our beloved cat Pepper, a.k.a. Pepsi. She was a 'tortie' too, only not quite as fluffy as your little darling. Pepsi lived to the ripe old age of 21.

Fluffy is extremely beautiful. :)

You can never go wrong with cats! Every home should have one I think.

And Fluffy doesn't look a day over twelve.

She really doesn't look her age, does she? A beauty!

Your cat is adorable! I used to have a long haired Maine Coon cat who looked sort of like yours. She had an attitude but I loved her.

Thanks for entering my OWOH giveaway and introducing me to Zentangles! I had to look them up...they're fascinating!

She's a very pretty girl! She reminds me of a cat I used to have called Queen Victoria but she was black.

Sounds like Fluffy has had a full and exciting life!
