Monday Picture of the week - Regan

We were child-free (this means none in the house, not that I've disowned them) and pet free. And had been for many years. Then a couple of years ago Regan's mom wandered into our yard and stole our hearts. Miss Priss was very scared and we could never coax her into our arms. Then Miss Priss had Regan. You can read more about him HERE. I was gone for 3 days a few weeks ago. When I was gone, he slept by the front door awaiting my return. Then when I came home, Regan was overjoyed to have me back. I realized after that, that he is in every room with me when I am home. If I get up, he follows. If I sit, he finds a spot to snuggle in. I can no longer imagine life without Regan. I love my kitty!




St. Jerome's Cat
~~~~~~~~~~~
St. Jerome in his study kept a great big cat,
it's always in his pictures, with its feet upon the mat.
Did he give it milk to drink, in a little dish?
When it came to Friday's, did he give it fish?
If I lost my little cat, I'd be sad without it;
I should ask St. Jerome what to do about it.

I should ask St. Jerome, just because of that,

for he's the only saint I know who kept a kitty cat.

Regan is just beautiful! There's something about the quiet company of a cat. Maui is my little companion.....wherever I go, she goes. Each room has a favorite spot to curl up and nap but her favorite is my lap.

Marlis,
Regan's post is so regal! Love those blue eyes. My Punkin is curled up beside me at this minute, snoring away. Dianne

I couldn't every pass up a cat post. Regan is so beautiful and such a good companion. Who says cats are not loyal -- a cat that will stay by your doorstep waiting is some cat! I am a cat person. We have two right now and I do love them -- even the one that came with the house that doesn't even let me pet her. Joni

Regan is so sweet. I have been pet free for a while. That statement sounds like something good but it isn't.
I am so glad you have Regan.
