The Kitty In The Window
Around our house my sweetheart and I like to think we are in charge but we know the truth. It's really Miss Savannah! She captured my heart one day as a friend and I walked past the window of a kitty rescue shelter. She was curled up asleep in a wicker basket in the window. She was exactly the kind of kitty I had hoped to find. I tapped lightly on the window. She woke up and came close to see what I was doing. I ran my fingers up and down the glass and she stood tall on her hind legs and tried to 'catch' my fingers through the glass. Time seemed to stand still and we played together longer than I realized. I didn't know how mezmerized she and I were with each other until my friend said, "You two are dancing through the window!" And we were! My friend and I continued on to our destination. Later, when I could think and talk of nothing else besides the kitty in the window, my friend urged me to go back and 'meet' her and learn more about her. I did - and the rest is history. She came home with me and we have been best friends ever since. She has a sweet personality but there's no doubt who is the boss around here. She spends much of her day napping or laying in the sun (when we have sun!). We never know where we will find her around the house. Perhaps in the very chair we want to sit in. . .Taking a lazy bath in the sun. . .Or on top of the pillows on our bed.Go away, I'm trying to sleep!OK, I give up - you win! What do you want?It's so nice to have a warm, snuggly friend around the house.
