Kitty Approved

Becky wanted to share with
your this morning
that Cupid
approves of her new room
and comforter.




Cupid is 14 years old
and next to my kids,
the love of my life.
His personality is as
big as he is.
Definitely a lover
and not a fighter.
Never shy about making his needs known.

For example:
He sleeps with Becky.
Max (the dog) sleeps with me.
My door is always shut at night.
If Cupid runs out of food,
he paces by my door until
Max starts whining, growling or barking.
If the pacing doesn't work,
Cupid will stand up
and bang and paw at my door!

For as old as he is,
he is still very kitten like.
He is also the only cat I have ever owned
that drools.
Yes, he drools,
while being petted and purring
he drools.

I didn't get much sleep last night.
He went and hid in our crawl space yesterday and
was still there when I went to bed.
I was afraid of what I might find this morning.
He had cried earlier in the day.
From what I could tell,
he had a sore leg.
Thankfully,
when I arose this morning,
he was lying and purring on
a blanket I had laid out
on the floor for him
before I  went to bed.

This morning,
he's purring and sleeping on a blanket on the couch.
All seems well.
I love this cat.


**The paint in the bathroom is named Violet Smoke.

Brought tears . . . I want him to be ok!

Sharon said...

Sweet kitty! My cat drools too. It's scary when they have problems or "get lost".

I like Becky's room, no wonder Cupid likes it!

Judy said...

I'm glad he was okay Jill. He looks and sounds like such a sweet kitty.

My 11 year-old cat Angus does the same thing at the door in the morning! Feed me, dammit!

Our other indoor cat, Maggie, is 16 and I get worried about her sometimes. She gets a little demented these days. :)

Michaele said...

He looks at home with all the other stuffed animals on her bed.

Charade said...

What's not for him to love? I'm sure zebras and Violet Smoke would appeal to every cat. Glad he's doing well.

Eva Ason said...

He looks very comfy where he lay =)
Glad that he is doing well there.
Have a lovely day!

Oh, what a sweetie! We had a cat that drooled too - and he was also a rather large boy. He was a Maine Coon - I wonder if Cupid is too and if that is a trait of that breed?

Darling photos!

It always scared me when my cats would disappear and I knew they were either hurting or not feeling well. Always afraid of what I might find. But in the end, they always came home. I love that big personality of your cat :)

Hey Jill. Becky's room is super nice. Those animal print comforters are in style for young girls. She will probably spend more time in the room now than before. I think you've lost her. LOL.
Glad to know your cat is better this morning.

Hugs Madi and Mom
Violet smoke...that is too funny.
It will always be beet red.

Jenny Woolf said...

He sounds a sweetheart. And now that he has given Becky's bed and decor the seal of approval you can relax ! :)

Maple Lane said...

Cupid is beautiful and he has excellent taste to sleep in Becky's new room! Cats can be pretty persistent when they want to be fed, that's for sure!!!

Debbie said...

Teresa said...

I hope Cupid didn't hide down there because of Mylie! Sure hope he's all better. He's a very special guy!

I like Becky's new room color and comforter! (Glad Cupid approves!)

Dawn's Craft Place said...

Oh I hope he is alright, I know sometimes change is hard the older they get.
I LOVE my kitty as much as my children also and can't imagine a life without a fur baby to love

Susan said...

Aw, how sweet. He is a beautiful cat! They are have their own personality don't they? My kitty's nose runs when I pet her. Funny!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

We used to have a big furry orange cat just like that and he was the love of my life, and I picked him out from the shelter because he drooled. They must be long lost cousins. I still miss mine - he passed away about 7 years ago :-( I don't think any other cat will ever trump how special he was.

I think he's loving the new shade in the room!

Cupid looks so content and right at home. I know how they can be part of the family after awhile.

I hope that Cupid feels better soon, we had a cat that made it to 16. I thought that cat was going to be like the roaches and survive the apocolypse. Lol.
