Our Sylvester, "Silly" for short. I know I've written about him before here, but I'm not sure if the love that lays between him and my husband was adequately conveyed. Because of the way in which it warms my heart so, I thought I would share once's a perfect example of the love that is freely exchanged here in our home.

My husband and Silly share an extremely special bond. Silly literally sulks once Daddy has left in the mornings to go to work and really doesn't perk back up again until he hears that key in the door at the end of the day and Daddy has returned.

Silly has sent Daddy to the hospital emergency department with bite wounds so severe that serious infection was a real concern, but it was all a terrible misunderstanding or so I'm told, (like so many of the clashes between these two), and before you know it, their loving each other once again. This kitty has a very special place in my husband's heart - and vice versa I'm sure.
Even though Silly can and is a very unpredictable kitty when it comes to his threshold for affection, has us constantly on guard around doors for his "dashing" abilities, and commands our attention on a regular basis with his "yowling" at nightime when he has a toy or other object that he's dragging from across the house to show us, I know that his presence and his character has enriched our lives twofold.

Somewhere I imagine there is someone who believes that Silly is either homeless or thankful we are that he was meant to take a different journey and that we have been blessed to have it be in our lives.

As Rascal rests all stretched out on our livingroom floor with a warm July breeze blowing over him gently, we sit back and shake our heads in amazement that he is still with us.
Below is my having captured him transfixed by a squirrel taunting him from a nearby tree in our I wish every person considering adopting, could come by and meet him - how they would all be fighting to take him home!

Once again it's all because he's a black kitty - don't you know they are bad luck?! *L* I actually can't even say that with a straight I'd like to have a word or two with the ding a ling that started that fable!!
This next picture is him incognito..............stalking Rocky & Silly during the course of one of their many games of chase - (he thinks the grocery bag has him well hidden from their line of sight).

Rascal is the kind of kitty that you would never tire of kissing, squishing, holding, kissing some more, and loving - he's just that adorable and cute beyond description. We know because he's been staying with us almost 2 months and we do it almost every day - lucky, lucky us!!

We're currently working on our backyard (I know on the hottest day of the year), and as you can see, Rascal & Silly are hard at work as well - at relaxing.

All I can think to myself as I discover them resting yet again, is how wonderful it must be to be a cat and have this much time for napping.

We're so grateful that we can offer our furboys shelter and coolness from this heat wave but we can't help but think of the countless kitties in our midst who not only don't have a soft, cool place to escape this heat, but who roam our city streets in search of food and water.

Treasure the love you have with your little friends, and may each of us do all that we can to help those among us who cannot help themselves.
