Well, this week our fearless leader Sally said: “Feel the love that the universe is trying to show us everyday!”
Last week I was boasting about how cute my daughter’s politeness streak is. That she enjoys opening her door to let the cat leave post snuggle every night. Cat walks through and she sweetly says: “You’re welcome Roxy”. Now I think you should meet Roxy.
Roxy was a shelter kitty. We almost missed seeing her entirely. My husband caught sight of her just before we left the shelter. I read her little card and saw she was a girl, had a cold, and was polydactyl. I just had to see. they opened the cage I slipped my hand under her sleeping belly and as soon as I cupped it she was purring. Instant love. Wouldn’t you know it we were then two minutes past the time for adoptions so we had to leave without her. They said they could put a hold for one day, but then there was a whole impossible schedule to get back. Long story short I picked up the phone the next day they were open and negotiated that I would go in on my lunch, start the paperwork, and then pick her up after my shift (which was after the last adoption time, hence the complication). Of course the person working on the paperwork at my lunch hour didn’t seem to register that I was taking her later even though I pointed it out several times. I very nearly had to have her under my desk for half a day but it worked out in the end.
Anyways all that was five years ago and I now work remotely from my home and Roxy usually hangs out with me most of the day. Occasionally she hops on the desk and nibbles my elbow while I work requesting a place on my lap and a little cuddle. She kneads my thigh with both six-toed front paws and purrs loudly. She is a picture of love in every way.
Ain’t she a sweetie! And look she’s a little heart face too. Looking forward to seeing everyone’s little frozen moment of love, head on over to Sally’s blog to see the love multiplied.
