Best Friends

We saw a photo of Franklin and Dobby over at Mishkat's today and it reminded the lady of her first cat, Smokey (1986-2001), and her favorite cat of all time, Addie (1993-2007), and how they were best of friends. So, she dug through some photos and found some prints which she scanned so that she could share them with you.







The lady likes it when cats have buddies. Addie lived with Elvis for three years before she died, but, she was not too fond of him. She was always growling when he got too close, and she slapped him across the face a few times. But, something connected between Addie and Smokey, and they were inseparable.

Those are some nice pictures of the Lady's kitties. Some kitties click, and some just don't. These two look cute together.

Smokey and Addie were beautiful! Those photos are great They do look like Franklin and Dobby - except Dobby has a long tail, and and Dobby will rarely sleep next to Franklin (I don't blame him - Franklin likes to bite his neck!)

I like it when cats have buddies too. Smokey and Addie were beautiful, such pretty markings. It is funny how cats buddy up or decide they don't like another cat; they make their own friends and social arrangements, that's for sure!

We love the pictures too. We guess we are lucky to get along with each other. We don't snuggle as much as in earlier days but still do it from time to time. And we play THoE. What great memories!

Cats who came before are a very special part of our lives. Best cat friend buddies are awesome too.

Mom says it is great when cats can be buddies! I myself don't seem to get along with the other two cats in this house.

I wanted to be friends with my brother poo-face Salvador but he was not interested in being friends with me. He always tried to kill me.

AWWWWWWW! My mom says that seein' cats snuggle is the best blood pressure medicine God ever made. I guess I'd better get busy with Tallulah, eh?

Mr. Black, where have you been? We miss you! I know about the "favorite cat" painting from the Met -- Years ago I bought a copy of it at Met gift shop and it is on my bathroom wall -- I bought it because it reminded me of Monger. It is such a great cat picture! I bought another copy of a cat painting from the Met that reminded me of my other cat, Norman. Norman was an oce-cat (bred to look like an ocelot) & was very beautiful with a wonderful personality. He had so many health problems tho, which is probably why he was dumped (I found him as a stray). Thank you for your comments!!

They are both so very beautiful :)
It's so wonderful to think back of memories of those who are with us in spirit but gone in body :))
We would love to hear some memories sometime :)
