In my opinion there's just nothing more calming than watching a kitty napping.......they always look so calm and peaceful.  Not a care in the world and nothing more important than having a wee rest.

I captured Flossy and Hobbs both doing exactly that, both in the infamous Silly cat bed (which everyone seems to love......and fight over!), at different times of course.

Today's post is dedicated to my sister Tanya who is being laid to rest this afternoon after passing away on Monday morning after an 8 month battle with adenocarcinoma of the esphogael junction - stomach cancer;  she was 38.

In what was to be the last real conversation that she and I would have over a week ago now, I was telling her about Abner & Hobbs and how adorable they were.  It seemed to please her, hearing about them,  and so I promised to ensure she got to see some pictures of them, which really seemed to lift her spirits at a time when she was really suffering.  Unfortunately, very shortly thereafter her situation took a grave turn for the worse, and sharing the photos with her never came to be.

Much to my surprise, it was Abner who posed first - Mr. Shy Guy who normally doesn't like the camera and evades it constantly.  I don't believe in coincidences, everything happens for a reason in my opinion, so having him pose so beautifully was almost as if he knew the significance behind the shot.

So this is for Tanya (and for her kitties Cuddles & Puddles), and for every other person who at this very moment is preparing to leave this world and return to that home beyond the veil, and also for their furry friends who will surely miss them as they go.............

The Summer has been very quiet adoption wise - moreso than I realized until I did a calculation and determined that Hobbs & Abner have been the remaining two kittens staying with us alot longer than I ever dreamed they would.

They grow more cute and adorable by the day (if that's even possible).  Abner is the more serious of the two, the quiet older brother we like to call him.  He's already settling into a mature kitty even at 5 months of age - you can see the differences between him and Hobbs now personality wise, alot more distinctly.  Abner is also alot shyer when it comes to camera time.................Hobbs is a little magnet for the flash but his brother prefers to stay in the background; thus very few pictures of him as of late.

Hopefully we can change that soon but until then, I wanted to share this latest photo of Mr. Adorable Himself.............sweet Hobbs.  If you're looking closely and wondering what that little "tip" is you see sticking out from under his belly; well it's the tip of his tail!!!  When I came upon him like this I just had to snap a shot since it was too cute how he had it tucked all the way up there.

This post isn't about favouring one over another, it's just about showing a gorgeous little kitten and what a strapping, handsome, big boy he's literally being transformed into right in front of our eyes. 

Here is Hobbs - he is personality plus and cute, cute, cute!!!!!!!!!!!
