Silky











Silky, a year older than her brother Luxor, is a true sweetheart. Before she came to live with us, she became a Grand Champion and then was bred, but this didn't work out too well. She became quite emaciated and even had to be separated from her kittens for the sake of her health. She and her kittens were briefly reunited before we drove to Phoenix to bring her home and I guess they all missed each other for quite some time. However, it was love at first sight when she and Luxor met, as if they knew somehow they were related. These two have been inseparable ever since, and can usually be found wound around one another in some form or fashion. Even though she's much tinier than he is, she won't let him push her around, either. She chases him as much as he chases her (and I think they both enjoy it). She becomes so excited at the mere suggestion of affection from us that she throws herself about in total abandon, unable to keep still long enough to even be stroked for any length of time. She'll jump up, then throw herself back down. Up. Down. One of her favorite things to do is climb onto my shoulder and then drape herself around my back, rubbing her face against my hair. She's also a kisser - right on the lips! So, in her own understated way, she's as much a character as her brother is. Best, Elaine


Happy Halloween! Be safe!

Happy Halloween, all!! It's a good day for all kitties(black or otherwise) to stay inside!

Silky, what a beautiful frootbat you are! You need to thwap your brother upside the head so he'll put your picture up with his for Frootbat Friday!

Kat, thanks for Kim's news, even if it's not all good! At least Sean is strong enough to be a stinker! Everyone, try to keep them both in your prayers.

Oh, Silky you are soooo beautiful. Tell Lux to put some more pictures of you on his blog. We hear he isn't feeling very well, so give him headbutts and purrs from us. You sound like a such sweetheart.

That's nice for winter to have a furr scarf around the neck ! Unfortunately my Pookie takes herself for a hat and that also in summer. Each night I have a furrhead on !

If ever you are interested in my trip to Turkey I published it now : http://painting-cats-travelling.blogspot.com/

Hi Silky, you are beautiful. We do need to see more of you on Lux's bloggie.

And hopefully Lux will be feeling better soon.

Kat, the new open, airy look of the Pet Prayer and Praise blog is great. Everybody, check it out, she did a really great job.

Silky wants me to thank each and every one of you who commented on her life story. She's a really great sister, and fun to snuggle with also!

P.S. Ninna's much too shy to put herself in the cyberspace eye!
