C is for Cat
Was there any doubt that this would be my choice for the letter c?
I have had many cats throughout my adult years, each one special in its own way. And each one with a unique personality like the one in the image below.
This is our cat, Mocha. We adopted her at the age of four months in September 2010 from the local humane society. She was a very fearful kitten, if not somewhat feral, when we brought her home. She wouldn't go near anyone and certainly wouldn't allow anyone near her.
Over the years, with love and patience and effort, she has made huge strides and has overcome many of her fears. Because I'm the one that spends a lot of time with her, feeds her and baby talks her, she is extremely attached to me. She follows me around throughout the day, curls up on my lap, sits next to me when I'm watching TV, greets me in the morning when I wake up and follows me up to bed at night. She even comes when I call her. And when I'm petting her, she looks up at me (as my husband recently stated) as if I'm some god. Correction: goddess (You are right, Debra!)
I am grateful for all the cats I've shared my life with but particularly grateful for this one. She's come a very long way.
Have a nice day, everyone!
