Gingerness


 
I have felt cats rubbing their faces against mine and touching my cheek with claws carefully sheathed.
These things, to me, are expressions of love.

Great photo. We have three outdoor cats whom we love very much/ They catch the farm mice and in return they get fresh warm milk from our cow everyday. We need them, they need us. It's a good farmy life.

Jo, Oliver has the prettiest color. He always looks so groomed. I miss clean house cats. My daughter has Ozzy, he stays outside and is dusty looking at times. LOL. Blessings, hope you have good weekend, xoxo, Susie

I absolutely agree ! Mine , especially little Minette , will reach out and gently touch my face ... Minette will give me a kiss .. Merlin is just trying to figure out who I am lol ( he has very bad eyesight) and then Honey is wondering if I might possibly have food hidden somewhere on my person.
it is true, I have become a cat lady.

My grandmother bred Siamese cats and her main love was "Suzy" ... Su Ling something or other in the cat world.
Suzy was very possessive .. if my grandmother spoke to me for too long, the cat would hit my grandmother in the face, put her paws on my grandmothers mouth and generally be a spoiled brat.
No one can ever tell me cats are not brilliant :)

Mine do that, especially my little Minette. She pats my cheeks, she strokes my face and then she will bite the tip of my nose.
That part I can live without but I know it is all Love.
