It's All in the Choosing, No?

Gratitude is the memory of the heart
Jean Baptiste Massieu

Fourteen years ago today you stuck your paw through a cage and chose me.

Every day I'm the luckiest girl in the world...

because I was chosen by the most magnificent creature :)

Thank you for making my every day brighter!


  1. isn't it wonderful to be chosen that way? i have had that experience myself - and it is unforgettable...

  2. wow Beth.. Your cat is gorgeous! reminds me of my old cat B.B. except B.B. had shorter hair. I love the green eyes... How cute how he chose you with his paw... I've had a thing with kittens lately... My sis and her bf just got 2 new kittens. They're adorable. Much love to you Beth.

  3. WE are blessed by our fur friends aren't we?

  4. Isn't it amazing how animals choose you by making that heart connection? Lucky Hugo and lucky Beth!

  5. He is a most magnificent creature - elegant and beautiful!

  6. Mary Jane, I can only think of two moments of choosing that were this profound and it was with both of my cats! How wonderful you have been chosen too :)

    Chrissy, I don't know what I do without these creatures in my life. So glad you feel blessed too!

    Catherine, they seem to make the heart connection almost instantaneously. I finally saw Avatar and thought it was so cool how they visually included that kind of linking and connecting with wildlife.

    Thank you for loving up Hugo, Stregata!
