For The Love Of A Cat


"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains un-awakened"

Love it.

YONKS said...

How very true! It is medically recognised that stroking an animal lowers blood pressure, of that is not a soul connection I don't know what is :-)
Thanks for stopping by and sharing Dylan with me x

PS - Do you miss England?

Hilary said...

What a beauty! And you are so right.
I am always suspicious of people who don't love them.

DJan said...

Don't I know it? I have loved many cats and dogs and still miss some of them today.

Sandra said...

No doubt about that! I totally agree.

What a great portrait. And what a great quote as well.

janjan said...

What a handsome fellow he is.

I sooooo love your blog, I miss England in the Autumn and living in the tropics we don't really see anything like an autumn here. So I've strolled through your wonderland and got my autumn fix.
Thank you.

Betsy said...

I'm drowning in cat-love. :)

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Oliver,
I hear you purrrrs.
Your voice is so very soft.
I dream
about touching your soft fur,
but I am so far away,,,,
but in my dreams
I can do anything.
You are beautiful
and I know you are so loved..
In my dreams
I will see you tonight.
love
tweedles

Great photo of the cat. So wise looking.

My soul must be WIDE AWAKE! She types this with 3 cats surrounding her on the couch. How do people go through life without animal friends. My sister has NEVER had a pet, I find that so strange.

Vicki said...

How true this is! I ADORE cats! I have always had one and can't understand how anybody could not. I like animals better than most people...Guess that sounds warped?
I love them though....

Louise said...

I have to admit that I don't quite get people who don't love animals. How can your life be complete without the loving presence of someone like Oliver?

Cindy Adkins said...

Perfect! I'm typing this over a pile of cat love curled on my lap at this moment!

Oliver is such a wonderful guy. We have an all yellow cat that comes now to the house for free food. He loves to be petted and would stop eating if you pet him.
