Early Christmas Present

.
Gizmo 1
The newest member of the family, Gizmo, who arrived recently at the home of my daughter and son-in-law, who hosted dinner yesterday. A couple of months ago, Brian found Emily's old. old, sweet-as-can-be cat lying in a sunbeam, unmoving (sniff!). However, they fell in love with this tiny thing at a shelter. It is fearless, affectionate and supremely calm. It lets the dog lick it. Gizmo seems to be a kitten with a lot of Buddha-nature.

Flying to New York this morning and then driving to see my family in New Jersey. Snow in the NY area could get in the way.

Gizmo has such lovely markings, Bob, which are amplified by the markings on the sofa.

Enjoy NY, snow or not. I am flying to Queensland where it is pouring with rain. I shall just sit inside and read and write.

Bliss. To sit alone on a mountain whilst the rest of the populace do crazy things to welcome in 2011.

Gizmo's attitude is one I would like to perfect.
Travel safely.

Heartwarming photo and the background story of lovely Gizmo.
Cats are so beautiful. Because we love cats, we started having a new blog, absolutely cats only!
Thanks for sharing.

As I sit at my computer I have a lap full of Meeps, another rescue kitty that fell into the lap of luxury. She has a "Spay Job" that cost as much as a few nights in Paris to prove it. Purrrrrrr
