Tayla and Kira are sisters in crime,
They are both calico in design.
Books are knocked off coffee tables,
Plants are sent into upheaval.
The two cats have different personalities.
One is outgoing and wishes to be petted,
While the other is often wanting to be fed.
In other words,
the second cat
will imply by her
“Since I wish to
I will allow myself
to be petted . . .
If you must.”
There are times their owners use water pistols,
Instead of saying repeatedly the word, “NO!”
They hope to dispel ‘bad’ behaviors,
But often they are ignored.
The funniest part of this story to me is . . .
When my close friend,
the kitties’ Mommy,
is being ‘bossy’
to her mate,
Her dear husband,
the kitties’ Daddy,

Tayla is a mainly brown, gray and white calico cat.
Kira is a mostly white with brown, tan and gray patterns
on her. This includes one that looks like a butterfly tattoo.
My friends, Jenny and Dave,
were the subject of a love story post,
“Love Found in a Video Store.”
I’m the one who discovered him
and ‘match made’ the two,
back in 1993.
It is 22 years since they met;
21 years since they married.
**Inspired by my friend, Luanne Castle’s post written
about visiting an animal shelter with her husband.
While there, they played with the kitties and walked
dogs, too. I admired how she gave us a serious
reminder of one of the other activities that goes on
there. She mentioned pit bulls and other breeds,
including chihuahuas, are often put down first.
This was to remind us of what happens when they
are not adopted and which breeds are chosen first.
Luanne has been having a hard time lately due to recent serious losses in her life.
Maybe we can go visit her and shower her with good wishes and hopes for her cat (Pear Blossom) and daughter’s cat (Isabella Rose) to be better.
