What a cutie! My cats have been so cuddly lately. They're such a joy to have around all year, but especially appreciated as little loving heaters in the winter. ;-)

Beth: She is a sweetie - and hard to believe she was at the shelter for nearly a year. None of the volunteers would even go near her, would get her foster mama to help anyone who wanted to see her. People weren't giving her a chance to come to them.

My friend was reluctant to view her as she already had one ornery cat (made even more so by the death of his brother), but decided to give her a chance. In the private room, we talked quietly while friend nonchalently waved a feather toy. It wasn't long before Ziva came out from under the chair to play, and before long she was greeting all of us.

She has completely wrapped the older male cat around her little paw, as well as mellowed him out. He stopped crying the day she entered the house, and was curling up with her before a week was out.

Peek-a-boo. I see you!

Heather said...

Colleen: I almost titled this "Peek-a-b00". ☺

Cute! Peeping tom?

Heather said...

Jane: No, not a tom, a peeping Ziva. ;-)

Such a pretty kitty! I love cats! :)

Heather said...

She is a beautiful cat - these photos don't do her justice, though you do get a good look at her eyes in the second pic.

I love it. the three pictures together give me that slow turn of the head feel.

Heather said...

Alice: It was more of a swift turn of the head, but yeah. LOL You should see her when the squirrel tries to get at the feeders. ☺
