Hey, it’s my website and every now and then I will share a personal photo or two. This is one of those days. I present my furry friend Pixel. She’s an incredibly lovable cat. She gets me and I get her. I sometimes feel like we are in tune with each other. I got her a small sick kitten. It was touch and go for a while but I was a big part of nursing her back to health. We bonded really well and today she is my little and very loving cat buddy.
It’s pet time. A number of years ago I adopted a kitten on impulse. Well, maybe not impulse. I was visiting an animal shelter with my wife because she wanted to adopt a kitten. She found one she liked real quick and went off to the get to know your cat room. I was left to wander around and in one cage I saw the cutest kitten I ever saw. She was tiny. I asked the volunteer to let me hold the kitten. I put the kitten in my hands and she looked at me and closed her eyes. She had me. I adopted her on the spot and named her Pixel. She has been bonded to me ever since. She is quite unusual in many ways. She is a great companion and hangs with me all the time. Today I was working on an upcoming camera review and she decided the letter tray on my desk was a good place to take a nap. Frankly, it just doesn’t get any better than this. Pixel is my little buddy.
This is my cat and as the author of this blog every now and then I take a chance and share something personal. My cat will e a year old in a little over a month. This show was made when she was eight weeks old. Her personality and such were quite evident even then. Her name is Pixel and she has shown and taught me more about love and living than I would have ever thought possible from a cat. A very special creature.
Pixel is now 9 months old. I never intended to have a cat. Never even thought I was a cat person. Then while visiting the Humane Society of Indianaplois with Debra to help her select a cat I saw this cute kitten in one of the cages. I asked if I could see her and they took her out of the cage. She was only 8 weeks old and so tiny I could hold here in the palm of my hand. She looked at me, big intense eyes, then she closed them as only a cat could do when they were content, and she had me. She had a rough start and was quite sick for a week a few days after I got her home, but she is a fighter and has grown into an incredible beautiful and loving animal. This cat and I have become one. She has changed my life with her spirit, adventures, and her ability to know when it is time to give her affection. She plays fetch with rubber bands, explores everything, has her own language and is quite the talker and does funny things that make me laugh. She has made me a better person. Who would have known? And, with what I do there was not a better name than Pixel. I guess you can tell I am a proud daddy.
