...for one reason or another...


"A cat has absolute emotional honesty:
 human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings,
 but a cat does not."
Ernest Hemingway

the shadows fell just right.
 i just had to call her name.
loving a cat.
means no talking.
they just come.
and give you love.
when they know you need it the most.
blue use to steal all my lap time.
gandalyn rose.
has quietly taken his place.
the silent love continues.
breathe.
enjoy the moments.
just BE.

Beautiful shot Robin : )
How true is this about cats .. I have had them most of my life and each one is so different from the other .. but all were and are pure honesty.

Ah, what true words, Robin, and a wonderful shadow shot for the day!! Enjoy your weekend!

Patti said...

Ah, yes..the silent love of one's cat is wonderful indeed.

Fun photo!

Oh, so true!!! And, perhaps the same can be said for dogs. Funny how we humans loose the ability to be honest as we become adults.

This is a great portrait shot of a very handsome cat. And yes - I love to end the day with a cat on my lap.

Too many of us just assume a cat to be stand-offish and aloof - au contraire, the cat is one with her family and just knows when to maintain a presence. It is not just a reward from us to the cat - from the cat is is even more rewarding. And our feline friends know this very well - they return far more love to us than we ever credit them for...

Peek-a-boo. I love the variety of black and white going in so many directions.

Beautiful shot.

(And it was only yesterday I decided to buy an unusual cat figurine for my verandah). Our little Shadow is the most wonderful little friend, understanding my hubby's moods and giving me a welcome home from work that I love. I have had a few cats and each one has quite a distinct personality. And that's how it should be. Love the peek-a-boo eyes in your photo.

and that's exactly why I prefer to live with cats! And my sweetheart!
Have a perfect day!

Such a lovely shot of your cat. They are true that is for sure. You can't make them do what they don't want to do. You are blessed when they sit on your lap. I still miss our cat.

Rebecca said...

This sounds more like my dog. Our cat is not so loving and tends to be grumpy. We just leave him alone unless he asks for attention and then you better give it or you will get a bite!

Cats and dogs. They are both more honest than humans, that`s for sure.
Lovelly picture :)

I miss my cats. And I love your tribute to yours. Beautiful photo. Cats always seem to find that perfect spot to nap or observe.

Nonnie said...

My feelings are illustrated in your wonderful shot and words. I love the softness and peace I feel when I visit here. thank you
My current lap sitter is my cat Jax; he's the sweetest cat who ever chose me to live with him.

Ruth Kelly said...

The photo of your cat makes me sad that mine is gone. He was with me 18 years.

I don't have a cat but I can feel the silent love between my hubby and me :)
I had a busy weekend, that's why late. Have a good week ahead!
