Focusing on Life Week 6: Feel the Love

As you can probably tell from the above title, this week's prompt for Sally's Focusing on Life series was "Feel the Love." I thought about it all week and then was struck with an idea on Thursday. It's a bit of a narrative (not too, too long though.) You've got to get a feel for the back story. Stick with me.

Meet my baby kitty, Asia. (She's not really the baby of the family, but you can't tell her that.) She is my shadow.

Her second favorite place in the world is my lap.

Now meet Rosalena, our other kitty (she's actually my niece's cat but lives with Pat and me. . .details, whatev.)

Asia DOES NOT like Rosalena. In fact, she is very suspicious of her and sworn her to be her mortal enemy.

However, Asia's first favorite place in the world is a spot of sunshine.

She LOVES the sunshine so much that she would brave this situation to get a sliver.
Yup! Can you "Feel the Love"? (for the sunshine that is).

So, that's my submission for this week's Focusing on Life. Hop over to Sally's blog, The Studio Sublime, to check out how others interpreted the challenge.

  4. Love your picture and backstory. I have two cats and the older barely tolerates the younger one, so I enjoyed how Asia loves the sunshine and risked being near Rosalena to be in the sun.

  5. Mary- It sounds like you have a similar situation to mine. You should have seen my husband and myself while that scene took place. We were holding our breath hoping it would last without an explosion of hissing and fur. We got about five minutes of silence. . . ;)

  6. LOL! Perfect!

    I know what you mean by calling her your baby kitty. I still call Daisy my baby and she turns 10 next month. I never had children, but I'm imagining this is how a Mom feels about her kids. : )

  11. Isn't it interesting how many pet photos there have been?! I guess not surprising since they give such unconditional love. I wonder what the percentage of artists/crafters that have pets? I bet nearly 100%.

    Wish I could have a cat (DH allergies) - yours make me wish it even more.

  12. Most of our cats have had relationships like your two! But every one loves something!

  14. "I don't like you but I do like sunshine. So I guess I'll have to tolerate you for five minutes." I love the photo of Asia on your lap. Sometimes I think about getting a sibling for Hope but I think she likes being an "only."

    Wonderful photo journal. Dita

  17. Great story of two not so loving fur babies, who can share the love of something, if not each other.

  23. It seems the sun is the one thing that ties them together! Love the photo of Asia peeking through the blinds and the last one of them lying next to one another.

  24. I love this story and your pics, too. And the kitties are too cute, both of them. But Asia's eyes - my oh my are they gorgeous!! Definitely feeling the love.

  25. Shel- Thank you! Asia does have some gorgeous blue eyes, and it's so hard to capture them for the camera most of the time. Rosalena's eyes are startling too with their bright yellow. I'm glad you like this post :)
