One Kitty, two kitty, three kitty... know the rest!

(Left) 'What are you guys doing up there?!'... Shrodinger (black/white) watches as Simba & Gizmo jostle around, up in the spaceship. This is a chatty big marshmallow boy... He is very gentle and loves to sit beside me, like this, while I work on my laptop, on the counter space to the right of him. He is very good about not stepping on it... I think mom trained him like that.

(Left) Little Lillie Willie..... She puts so much energy and feisti-ness into her scratching post sessions.... She just met Monk & Kenji for the first time.... Oh, Mamma Mia..... Can you say 'Energy Plus'...?

(Left) Juliette (tortoise shell) was captured, out of her castle, rustling around on the floor with a few of her toy mice..... She is very funny, when she thinks that you aren't looking.... She turns into a crazy kitten...Very cute!

(Left) When Kuzia (dark tabby) isn't doing his floor work outs... He's protecting BigBird1 from any wayward kitties, with bad intentions.... This is a vocal big boy. He loves to talk. Often his voice sounds a bit harsh, but he's not.... He just likes toning....or, is that tuning!?

What is on Melvin's Mind

Q. I spoke with some friends last week. They had called me on a previous occasion to ask my opinion about their young one year old male orange tabby, Melvin. He had started sneezing and the dad was concerned, wondering if they should take him to the vet. I asked if anything had changed, was there loss, perceived loss or separation, that the cat would be experiencing. (Sneezing and colds are energetically associated with these emotions). Sure enough, the mom, was away on a trip, separate from the cat for the first time, and the woman was worrying and stressing over being away from the cat. I told him to tell her, to stop the worrying and missing the cat. Instead, she should send good thoughts, positive in nature and stop the worrying. Sure enough, the cat stopped sneezing.

This time, when I saw the dad, he said the cat had started sneezing again. The woman wasn't away this time but the sneezing had gotten so bad, that he actually 'turned blue'. They had to rush him to the hospital and get meds and xrays done. The sneezing stopped while on the meds, but as soon as they were finished, it started back again. The vets said he may have asthma and had definite damage done to his lungs, probably from an upper resperitory infection/cold, when he was younger.

A. I asked them to send me the cats picture so that I could connect with him. I had never met Melvin before but he was very willing to talk to me. I asked how he was feeling? Not alright, trouble breathing. Why? Dad says it's asthma. Are you in pain? More discomfort. I asked him if he knew why he was having trouble breathing? Heart valve opening funny. What's it doing? Not closing on time, not regulating proper flow. I'm pumping too much, not enough oxygen getting in the blood stream'. What would fix it? 'Blood thinners'. Why? 'Keep it greased up, oiled up, to help it close more/better'. What else would help you feel better? 'Not being cooped up inside all the time, go outside sometimes, getting fresh air'. How is the air in your house? 'Seems fine so far.'

What is wrong with your lungs? 'It's the heart, not the lungs. The heart is the problem, not the lung function. Melvin's parents had mentioned that he sometimes has blood in his stool too. I asked him what was causing it? 'I'm not digesting well, my body is trying to digest but I'm not feeling well and it's stressing my organs. How long have you had the heart problem? 'From time I'm born'. Why is it getting worse now? 'I'm getting bigger, (they just moved into a bigger house), big house to run around in.' What emotionally is the cause of the heart trouble? 'Not letting go of past.' What happened in the past? 'Didn't want me. Who? 'my old dad, said I wasn't good enough to keep'. Are you ready to die? 'Not really.'

Would you like your mom & dad to get another young playful cat for you to play with (they had been considering it)? 'Not really. Why not? 'Not what I want, too busy, I need to rest now, not feeling well enough, right now.' What makes you happy Melvin? 'Night time, on bed together, whole family'. What makes you sad? 'Being discarded, thrown away like that, not wanted anymore. Do your new mom & dad want to keep you? 'Not sure yet. We'll see later on.' What worries you? 'My past, not right, not nice, mean to me, didn't want me.' What makes you laugh? 'The bathtub, walking in it, splashing/ playing in it.' What would you change about your life if you could? 'More life, a long life, no more pain.'

Lots more kitties coming tomorrow...

(Left) Our gorgeous little Tutti (dark tabby) is a first timer at the Pet B&B. She started out playing in the hay bails, in front of the big sunny windows... but, this morning, I caught her hangin out with BigBird1. She looooovvvess her neck scratches. She has settled in very quickly.

(Left) Jasper (black) popped in on Gizmo (grey & white) and his good buddy Sweetie (Siberian). Jasper was the last one standing, this morning. Sweetie and Gizmo were already Out! Jasper and Sweetie will meet up again at Christmas time..... Yah!... So will Simba & Gizmo, come to think of it!

(Left) I really think that Lillies dad should bring Lillie in for Christmas & New Years too... She would have so much fun with her old buddies and all her new ones... Here, she kept an eye on BigBird2, this time, from the front of his house... vs. .. from his roof top.

(Left) You know that they are comfortable when...... What do you think.. Is Frankie (black & white) looking kinda comfy, right about now. He did open one eye, ever so slightly, to see what I was doing, but figured his pose was already cute enough.... no need to alter his position further.

Are Ottawa Cats getting cuter!!

(Left) Juliette (tortoise shell) is back for another stay, in her favorite castle... Mon petit hibou, as I call her, is a regular guest at the Pet B&B. She is an independant, curious little girl. I love her markings... especially the stripe down her nose.

(Left) Kuzia (dark tabby) does his morning floor work out... You got it. He can be a ham too! He is not the most approachable cat, when he first comes in, but he warms up rather nicely. We will be seeing quite a lot of him in the months to come.

(Left) Schrodinger (black & white) was snapped mid grooming session. He is a big handsome kitty. I love the picture. He looks like he belongs in a Lazy Boy chair with a converter beside him. Another of my KittyPeople... My big SchroRo is a complete schmooze.

(Left) Darwin (orange tabby) is no stranger to the Pet B&B either. He is a shy, gentle big boy and stays out of the spot light as much as possible. He can be very affectionate, just the same.... on his terms... and, that is fine with me.

The young and the old of it.....

(Left) My little Buttercup Bunny went home yesterday. The cats will miss their staring contests, through the french door windows. I have never called any of the bunnies I get in ... Bugsy.... but it was a natural name to call Buttercup... She was a real charmer.

(Left) Yes, Jasper. (black) That is the same BigBird2.... No, Jasper. He is not on tonights dinner menu. BigBird2 loves to tease the cats. For the few cats that jump from the floor, to hang onto the mesh window screen, they get more than they bargained for, when BigBird comes right over and takes a bite of one of their toes..... or their nose. He is not fussy!

(Left) Raffie (grey & white) is getting quite old... I think he is around 18 years old now. He is still very active, a good jumper and he has an amazing appetite. He will be visiting with us for the coming weeks. When there is not wet food on offer, he is a calm, quiet and friendly little boy.

(Left) Lillie (Bengal) is, as I have already alluded to, an amazing little climber.... Here is more photo proof of that. Ok. This one is mine. I am sitting on it.... This bird is mine! She had so much fun with Sweetie (Siberian) and Jasper (black above). Do not worry Lillie. I have many more young playful kitties coming in, for the duration of your stay. I have even caught Gizmo playing with her.

Kudos to Ottawa Cat Duos. You are too cute!

(Left) Another of my charming duos .... Leftie (black) and his brother Frankie (black & white), below, are in for their late autumn holiday..... These schmoozie twosies are a lot of fun. Leftie had fun suntanning on the hay bails, while his brother Frankie had fun being entertained by BigBird1.

(Below) Leftie shows us that his little pink mouth IS bird sized .... Oh, not that he would ever put a bird in there.... Oh, NO! This kitty is very selective when it comes to his food.... It has gotta be Iams chicken in the tin or nothing!

(Below) The other half of the Gizmo (Friday) and Simba (orange tabby below) duo. As you can tell, Simba is every bit the ham as his brother is, with or without the camera to inspire. This is my big marshmallow boy. So many handsome kitties!

Boy-Boy Looking for his Forever Home

Boy-Boy is the only male out of four siblings and like his sisters he was born outdoors at the beginning of November 2008. A kind lady gave Boy-Boy, his mom and sisters a cardboard box filled with straw and covered with a tarpaulin. That is where they spent that entire winter. In spring Boy-Boy and his three sisters were taken in and quickly became loving, playful pets. Happy to be safe indoors he enjoyed new toys, regular food and the warmth of a home. He is happy that his sisters have found good homes and is wishing for his forever home.
Boy-Boy is up to date with routine shots, and has been altered. He is house trained. He is medium sized and grey... and very very cute. Can you resist that face of his?If you wish to adopt Boy-Boy contact the Cat Rescue Network at (613)820-7088 or via email to

Portia. What is on her Mind.

Q. Portia has visited me for many years. Earlier this year she started having bad intestinal troubles with diarrhea. After many tests, trying different foods and a biopsy, the vets determined that she had IBD (Irritable Bowel Disease). This can be caused by a few things, one of which is stress. So, the challenge was to figure out what the stress is.

A. I asked Portia if she felt stressed sometimes. She answered that she was not at all. I asked her if she thought a food or environmental irritant was the cause for the problems, she did not think so. I asked what makes her happy. My bed, beside mom, being & lying in the sun, suntanning, watching bugs playing, lying & rolling around on the deck.

What makes you sad. Being all alone, outside alone, being old, getting old. Why. Not the same, slowing down, going down hill. It is not like before, when you have such energy to burn up. What is different. Now I get tired easily, I get bored, tired of sleeping all the time.

What makes you laugh. Moms hair in the morning, upside down, it is funny to see & look at. Other. Watching tv. Why. Crazy things people do, so silly and stupid sometimes. Other things. Being on my back, getting belly rubs.

What would you change about your life if you could. Be young again. Why. So many things I would try this time, climbing trees, catching birds and chasing butterflies, being in love, having kittens and being a mother to them.

What do you worry about. My health mostly, if it fails, what then, She will be all alone. Who. Mummy, my mummy. I do not want that. Are you sick Portia. I am not, not yet but I will someday be, and I will leave her. Why do you worry about your mom being all alone. Who will look after her then, if I am gone. She needs me here. What would make you stop worrying about your mom. If I could be well for a long time still. Would it make you happy to have another younger, friendly cat in the house with you and your mom now, so that she would not be alone, if you went. May. What kind of cat would you like. Tom Boy, orange cat, not old, kindergarten. Explain. One year old, boy or girl, but more a boy. What name would you like to give him. Ryan, Jake or Miguel.
Anything to tell me Portia. I am sad to leave. I love her a lot, so much (I could feel a huge sadness in me, from her, as we got to this part of the conversation). Anything to ask me. Tell her I love her a lot, all the time, even when she is away. I think of her, all the time. Anything else to tell your mom. I will be gone before long, you need to get along without me. Are you dying Portia. I am not, but I will some day. Are you sick. I am not, but I am getting old. Anything I can do for you Portia. I will be fine.

Gizmo goes 'Side saddle'

(Left) Gizmo (grey/white) is one of my camera's favorite muses.... He loves to take a pose and he'll even hold it long enough for you to get a clean shot.... so many of my furries move around so much with the camera... you end up with a bunch of action shots. I caught him yesterday, enjoying the beautiful sunshine that was streaming in on him....

(Right) You've heard of the 'Headless Horseman'.... what would this make my little Gizmo?!

(Left) 'Oh, OK! I'll put my head through!' He said.... You too funny Gizzie Wizzie!

(Left) Ok. So who among my regular readers will recognize this pose.... Yes. You got it! It IS Sweetie (Siberian). This is one of his most recognizable looks.... I think it would be fitting to put this picture on his little Kitty Passport.... rather than a straight face shot... I am sure his mom would agree....

So many Ottawa Cat Cuties!

(Left) Portia (solid grey) is such a gentle, quiet cutie. I am looking forward to having a chat with her, hopefully this week. I will see how my new building goes..... but, she is definitely at the top of my list. We look forward to seeing her at Christmas too.

(Left) There are my handsome friends, Sweetie (Siberian) and Parker (white & orange).... both friendly, social schmoozes.... Parker will be visiting us again real soon. Sweetie will be back with his crazy little buddies this Christmas. The party is definitely going to be at the Pet B&B this year... just like the last 7 years... I still cannot believe that I will be starting my 9th year in December!

(Left) There she is... there she goes! Little Lillie (Bengal) gave the scratching post a quick scratch before gliding up it, with speed and grace... She does make it look easy! This gorgeous girl has a spine of rubber. You should see how far she arches her back backwards when she stretches or scratches a post. This is a very fit little Miss.

(Left) Bustie Bear.... aka.. Buster (orange & white tabby) has been coming in for many years. He arrived the same day that Chief went home... I have commented before how these two boys can always arrange to be at the Pet B&B at the same time... and, I am not talking long weekends or Christmas time.. I am talking obscure, random kinda dates... it is quite amusing. Now, when one books, I pull the file for the other...! (Just in case).

Friends, friends, friends....

(Left) Tessie Wessie (dark tabby) is such a little goofy girl... with or without a camera in my hand.... She is very social and playful. She will be visiting us again for Christmas. I know that Tess is looking forward to seeing more of her old friends again.

(Left) Buttercup bunny is visiting us for the first time. She loves tearing up and down the hallway teasing all of the cats. She also is rather fond of her veggies. She makes fast work of a lettuce leaf. As bunnies go, she is very friendly and gentle.

(Left) There is my gorgeous girl Jane (dark tabby). She will be visiting us for Christmas this year as well. There are many cats that she will meet for the first time then. She is a calm little charmer that loves attention.

(Left) Little Lillie (Bengal) was real interested in our handsome boy, Parker (orange & white) this week. This was a typical picture of Lillie, following Parker around the group area. He did not seem to mind. It is never a bad thing to have adorable little girls follow you around. Right Parker!

Monday, November 16, 2009

Lots of the Pet B&B's old friends....

(Left) Our big boy Cosmos (grey/white) looked quite relaxed indeed, shortly after he arrived on Friday. He made his way to the back of the group area and climbed up to his favorite bunk bed. Sounds like this big cutie has become quite the 'mouser'... and, another 'feather in his cap'... or, more appropriately, in his mouth... Dad says Cosmos caught his first bird recently....

(Left) Sushi (lynx point Siamese) was being very goofy on the ferris wheel while the morning sun beat down on him. He was doing a few cart wheels of his own while I took pictures of him. I thought he looked too cute with his little toes sticking out of the his landing.... maybe that's how he keeps himself from falling, while he schmoozes for the camera!

(Left) Our gorgeous calico, Mirette, is a regular face at my B&B. If it's a sunny afternoon, she's bound to be spotted sleeping in one of my Kitty Cabs, in front of the big windows.

(Left) Our adorable Tessie (dark tabby/white) is already a seasoned climber, in her few short years. This is a friendly and affectionate little girl, that loves to join her mom on strolls through the neighbourhood.

Gaia Looking for her 'Forever Home'

Gaïa was found in early August abandoned, hungry, thirsty and pregnant. This medium sized grey calico cat was grateful to have humans to take care of her and the five babies she had born on October 11th! They did not survive despite the foster family's devoted care and efforts.

Gaïa is a young, talkative, intelligent, funny & affectionate cat. She is already house trained and she enjoys having conversations with her people friends. When you get home from work, she will greet you at the door ready to ask you about your day. She will listen to you and make comments when appropriate. She likes to have her can of wet food at supper and will remind you if you forget or are a little late giving it to her. She shows her contentment through loud and prolonged purring sessions.

Having been outside, Gaïa still enjoys going outside. She handles wearing a harness and leash just to get the opportunity to take a walk outside and lay in the grass. She loves to cuddle, loves to have her belly rubbed, oh and she loves her treats! Best of all she prefers the belly rubs. She is gentle and loving to her humans, especially to children. The looks she gives you show pure love. If you wish to adopt Gaia contact the Cat Rescue Network at (613)820-7088 or via email to

The first day that I talked to an animal....

This story was originally written as a request from a local newspaper that wanted me to convey my own personal experiences in an effort to educate and excite people about Animal Communication. Rememberance Day 2009 marks the 4th anniversary of my learning to communicate with animals. It also marks the one year anniversary of this blog, Ottawa Cat Chit-Chat. I thought it would be timely to run this story for my readers.

The Animal Communicator Inside

I feel a real wonderment about the animals that share our lives, both domestically, in our homes and those that inhabit our larger home, Mother Earth. They all speak their own languages and exchange meaningful communication among their own species, independent of humans. So, imagine how magical it must feel to be able to share in their seemingly exclusive inner thoughts and feelings.

My name is Melanie Walker. For the past eight years, I have owned and operated The Pet Bed and Breakfast. It is a completely cageless cat boarding facility. I have been an animal communicator for the past four years. If you had told me five years ago, that I would be able to commune with animals, I probably would have told you that you have an incredible imagination.

I have had many unbelievable experiences and feel very privileged to be an animal communicator. It is a world full of colorful personalities, each with their own style, sense of humor and uniqueness. Each conversation is special and each animal can teach you something new, that will expand your understanding of What Is and What Is Possible. The work is riff with uplifting exchanges and, just as often, has proven to be gut wrenching and heart breaking. Even those times have been remarkable. They have taught me about them and about our relationships with them. They truly are here to help us and teach us.

I believe that many people who share a deep love and respect for all life, have had many animal communication experiences of their own; they just don’t realize it, refuse to validate it or, in many instances, aren’t aware that it is even possible. My first noteworthy communication experiences started happening in my second year of business at my kennel. It was my morning routine to enter each of my group boarding environments and put the lights and music on. I would pass through one set of french doors and on to the next, repeating the process until all rooms were lit. On occasion, I would walk into a particular room, put the lights on and, without even having seen any or all of the cats yet, instinctively or intuitively, I knew that someone wasn’t well. I didn’t know How I knew that, but I did. I would know that something wasn’t right. Perhaps someone wasn’t feeling well or had stopped eating. I was spookily accurate at this too. My friends would caution me to ‘be careful, in case I ended up somehow getting sick from them’.

I questioned myself and spoke with many other people, in my effort and growing frustration, to try to understand what exactly was happening. Could I feel their low energy? or, Were they somehow telling me that they weren’t well? After about a year of these occasional baffling experiences, I met a woman that finally could help. She was very intuitive and well informed about many of the subtle things that are possible energetically. She was the one to tell me that Animal Communication is very real and that many people work in the field, full-time, as a career. I was shocked and a bit skeptical. I rushed off and bought a bunch of books on the subject. They gave me a feel for what other people were doing and an understanding of the scope of what could be communicated.

I had grown up on a farm and had many small pets that occupied my time and curiosity. I would sit and watch them, handle them, and observe how they learned, acted and communicated with each other. Even from a young age, I had a deep respect for their intelligence, their ‘humanity’ and their instinct. I was very aware that they were sentient beings. This was very obvious to me as a child and became even clearer, once I started working with animals. They are capable of experiencing every emotion that people do.

After achieving only limited success through the ‘How To’ books on the subject, I decided to go to New York City in search of a full fledged course. Aside from the fact that I knew it would be fun and an amazing skill to learn, I was deeply aware of how this could impact my work at my kennel. I considered how much better I would be able to help the animals, if I were able to understand their health and emotional needs better. By this time, my fascination had already taken root, regarding the many animals that I cared for. I met a steady stream of cats that had existing health issues like diabetes, kidney disorders or thyroid problems. Of bigger interest though, were the cats that had subtler health issues, like headaches or stress reactions. These often manifested in the form of ‘compulsive’ habits such as excessively licking their coats to the point of bald patches, or worse, open lesions.

On Friday November 11th, Remembrance Day in NYC, a group of sixty or so people, predominantly female, attended the two hour info session designed to give a brief overview of what the weekend had in store for us. In less than an hour, we got down to the ‘nuts & bolts’ of our first attempt, at communicating with a real live animal, Sea, the turtle. Sea, lay motionless in our instructor’s hand. What she lacked in animation, she made up for in conversation.

Each person in the group telepathically sent Sea the same question. Then, we’d each receive our own interpretations, which varied in detail, depending on our openness to receive and on our sensory strengths. When I asked her, ‘How she felt?’ She sent me a deep feeling of sadness and loneliness. When I asked her about her favorite foods she told me ‘ berries and grapes, preferably purple ones’. When I asked her ‘What she longs for?’ I got my Wow! moment in spades! Not only did she tell me that she longs to go outside and be in the grass, she showed me... Oh, but not just a picture of her outside in the grass... She let me pop my consciousness into her little turtle body and showed me, in full, vivid, 3D color, what she wanted. It was a surreal experience. We connected so profoundly that I WAS the turtle! I was inside of the turtle. I looked out the little turtle eyes. I felt my little turtle feet sunk into soft, lush grass beneath me. I felt the blades of grass stroke up against my little turtle cheeks. I didn’t know it at the time but, this technique is commonly referred to as Gestalt, and should only be done to another, with their express consent. Sea, on the other hand, invited me in and gave me the experience of a lifetime. NYC will always be one of my favorite cities due to these magical memories.

This first experience proved to be a life defining moment for me. It forced me to re-examine and re-define those things that I had for-took as ‘real’. It was the kind of experience that changes your world and challenges your perception of your world, forever, leading you to question ‘What else is possible?’

We had a wide array of guest animals to help us practice that weekend. Along with Sea, the turtle, we had a rabbit, a rescued white lab rat, a family of 3 Daschunds, a cat and a parrot. Each animal’s people were present for the Q & A segments involving their animal. The people provided the crucial element for us ‘Newbie’s’, The Validation. How else would I have possibly believed that an apartment dwelling Manhattan parrot told me that one of his best friends was a pink flamingo. His dad was delighted, when I offered this answer, along with the black and charcoal grey cats that most other people got too. He told me, that his parrot, has a little plastic pink flamingo toy. It sits outside of his cage, and he talks to it all of the time. Without this man’s validation, I probably would have left that evening thinking that I didn’t get anywhere that day, that I must’ve only been ‘making things up’. The ability to not judge or analyze what you receive, with the conscious/analytic mind, does take some practice.

Many people have told me over the years that they think their animal understands them, their animal knows when something is going on in the house, they know in advance that the family is going away on a trip, even before the suitcases come out. Lots of people say they have a ‘feeling’ that their animal talks to them, trying to tell them things. All of the above , are possible and do happen regularly. If you think about an animal, they know that you are thinking about them. They can receive your thoughts regardless of space and distance. They hear them. It is possible to speak to an animal by using a picture to connect, or by using a picture of the animal, in your mind, to connect. It is even possible to speak with an animal that has already died. Most animals have very good recollection of their past lives, and their past lives, with you, either in your current or your past lives.

I know that this all seems like a lot to believe and digest, if you’ve never heard about Animal Communication before. All I can say is that these tidbits are really only the tip of the iceberg. I’ve been practicing my skill for four years now. The animals never cease to amaze me with their humor, insight, intellect and ‘soulfulness’. This skill is available to every one of us to learn. It is our innate birthright. We are born with the ability to talk to the animals. We often lose touch with nature as we grow older but, if any of this has peaked your interest, realize that it is easy to re-learn. It is my belief that our communication takes place at the spirit level and that, at that level, we are all the same. We just drive different cars. That’s all!

Sun filled weeks.... not just in the south!

(Left) Handsome big Parker (white/orange) is visiting us for the first time. As typical male oranges are, he's quite a friendly big boy. You never know where you'll find him next. He hasn't really established any real favorite hang outs.... He's still trying them all... He'll let us know by the weekend! Big Cutie.

(Left) Sushi (Lynx Point Siamese) had just finished his breakfast and was ready to jump up into his favorite hot air balloon. I think that this was his preferred sleeping spot last visit too. He's an interesting, beautiful boy.

(Left) I told Lillie's (Bengal) dad that I wouldn't get a picture of her on the blog til next week... but, I snuck this one in. She's too cute! What an amazing little climber. She's about 5 years old, but you can hold her in one hand.... So far, she loves all things 'height'.... airplane, loft, top of the tree houses.... This is a busy little Miss!

(Left) Toto (calico) is visiting me again, while her mom & dad are honeymooning in the sunny south... I tell you! What is it about this week?! She's a very gentle and calm cutie.

(Left) Our boy Chewbaca (dark tabby/white) passed out for the morning on one of his favorite big pillows. He's a social butterfly. He loves all people and other cats... Just call him Mr. Schmooze!

So many helpers this week!

(Left) Luzzie! You are such a busy little girl, it's rare to see you sitting still.... Luz (dark tabby) is having fun with some of her new friends Parker & Chewbaca.... She loves the camera! She can be busy doing something, and, once she sees you holding the camera, will make a very funny, cute movement, that would be akin to a girl tossing her head and long hair back, then giving you a flirty, coy smile. Very funny little Luzzie!

(Left) Jane (dark tabby) was kind enough to help me sort all of the clean bedding and pillow covers, the same day that she arrived, Monday. She went straight back to her favorite bunk bed, within minutes of arriving, for this, her second visit. She's a chatty little girl and has the most gorgeous green eyes.

(Left) Here she is. This is little Chablis (dark tabby), sister of tiny Chopin, from yesterday. These two girls can get into friendly moods, but mostly, they like to keep to themselves. They are independant, even with each other.

(Left) Eins (dark tabby) was also a big help with my new building projects this week. He had me pick him up and show him around, as the new structures progressed.... He'd give me a big wet kiss on my nose, as approval, throughout the building phase.
