I enjoy my Cat-A-Day calendar. I’ve even had some of my photos of cats published in the calendar. This year I guess my spectacular photo of Olivia didn’t make the cut. How can that be???
I enjoy the photos on the calendar most of all, but I also like learning about each cat. And here’s a secret—sometimes I look through the calendar to find names to use for cats in my stories and for some of the human characters. The whole world is a research library.
Also I like the quotes that go along with some of the cat photos. Here are a few faves:
“If cats could talk, they wouldn’t.”
I’m not sure I go along with that. I’ve had cats that seem to have a lot to say and if they don’t think you’re listening they just talk louder. I swear I have taught Olivia to talk. Sometimes she’s obviously trying to get my attention—whining for attention. Other times it’s as if she’s actually trying to have a two-way conversation with me. Cuteness!
Here’s a quote I don’t recall seeing before. It’s on another cat calendar I’m using—from my favorite cat rescue shelter, ResQCats. “I believe cats to be spirits come to earth. A cat, I’m sure, could walk on a cloud without coming through.”
Have you heard/read the notion that cats are visible souls? That’s a sweet thought. And how many of you have been aware of visits from your cats that have crossed the Rainbow Bridge? So bitter sweet.
