While I am posting about cats, here is a shot of my sister's kitten Xander, grown up a little since she got him last July. I have always been a dog person (how serindipitous to have married a Barker!) mainly because I just didn't know any cats. Now both of my sisters and my parents are owned by cats so I have been around felines a lot more and can appreciate how special they are. I doubt my 3 canines would ever allow a feline in our home but I have thought about it lately after learning the sad fate of most of the cats in our city's animal shelter. I am sure I am nearing the limit of pets allowed in households in Friendswood...maybe I should apply for a zoo permit.
What fantastic eyes Xander has!

And I can't forget Christina's first cat, Kya. I have colorcast issues with this image that I just can't seem to resolve. The walls in that room are a bright yellow, and while daylight was coming in from a window there also may have been some lights (tungsten, halogen, fluorescent?) on. All I know is her eyes and the comforter she is on are both a beautiful yellow-green-blue color that is not showing up well. So, take my word for it!
I just love her mouth!
