Life is a Blessing

My Blessings. All mine!

I have to count my Blessings that I’m through almost half of the Blogging From A to Z Challenge. It’s been a real challenge in more than one way. Today I’m also participating in the 52 Snapshots of Life Photo Challenge hosted by the Lazy Pit Bull and that theme is Blessings. L can stand for Life or Lazy something I’m not.

Even though they’re not the overly religious type, Pop and TW count their Blessings every day that with all the cats at the shelter, they picked Moi! The Blessings in my Life are many: a warm condo, three squares a day, a Pop to FURminate me, many toys and scratching posts, this blog and two communities to call my furrends—the Twitter Anipals and Cat Blogosphere. I also have a family that adores me—actually, after yesterday’s post that they thought was ha-ha funny, I’m not so sure anymore. They have made my Life more inneresting and I hope I’ve enriched theirs. All my readers are Blessings. I know I’ve said that before but I can’t say it enough.

L is also for Lamp and this is a great time to give you my affiliate link to the Himalayan Salt Shop. They sell salt lamps and much more. Your cat will look stunning next to one of these big orange rocks salt lamps.


My adoptable cats today are a package deal. This is Luci and Fred. I originally wanted Fred for the F’s cos that’s my Pop’s name but permissions came too late. Both are Siamese mixes.

Luci is a very sweet and extremely playful little imp of a tuxedo! She is one of Maizy's kittens, and the MOST athletic. She can readily spring to 10 times her height in a flash, and all you have to do is move a toy and THERE she is!!! When you recline, Lucy likes to dance across your collarbone before curling up to nap on your left shoulder. What a purr this tiny package has!!!! Luci is a very petite girl, and is rather shy in new places. But once she settles in, she is very brave and loves to approach you for treats and cuddles, especially if she thinks you might get up and play with her as a result! That's only fair, isn't it? Luci would like to be adopted together with her brother Fred, who is her favorite hiding spot! Fred is a timid but adoring gray boy who likes to cuddle in your arms or next to your ear when you lie down. Their mom Maizy is a four-paw declaw wedgehead Siamese girl who was put outside when she went into heat. This poor baby gave birth to four kittens under a shed. These poor kits began feral, but you would never know it the way they've blossomed under our volunteers' care. They're reformed and ready to cuddle!

Both Luci and Fred are available from New York City Siamese Rescue, small group of volunteers who find homes for orphaned and abandoned Siamese Pointed and Snowshoe cats and related breeds, such as Tonkinese, Balinese, Birman, Ragdolls, and Himalayans. To learn more about them and see the rest of their adoptable cats, visit their web site.
