Happy Sweet 16, My Faith

Filed under: General — by Glenda at 11:57 am on Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Sixteen years ago today, my aunt placed a tiny 5-6 week old (exact birth date unknown) brown tabby kitten on my lap. There she stayed. I wasn’t sure she could walk the first couple of days. Faith and I have been inseparable ever since.

Faith sleeping on both of couch

She was still such a young kitty that she tried, repeatedly, nursing from my neck. She still does on occasion. (Do cats have bad dreams and need comforting?) There’s nothing like being awakened by a kitty claw in the jugular vein and being smothered in kitty kisses.

Faith is equally content curled up behind my knees. (Not my most photogenic side…oh well…)

While working at my desk, Faith often in her cathouse, right beside me…when she isn’t sprawled out on the desk.

Faith poking her head out of her house

M-m-m good! Smile

Faith licking her lips

How could I ever say no to this adorable face?

She is constantly washing herself…

Faith still washing her face

And the photo shoot is over…

Happy sweet 16, Faith! Thank you for being a good kitty.

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.

Oh the memories. MsHera turned 15 last January.

Does Faith get up on your chest and nead you? They pick the most in opportune times to be affectionate, don’t they.

Happy Birthday Faith!

Happy belated birthday, Kitty!! I always enjoy your posts…I love kitties. We only have a small, female feral cat with one broken foot (she doesn’t seem to notice)…too wild to catch but we feed and water her. She comes by the patio a few times a day and has for a couple of years…

Thank you, Gayle! Sounds like ‘your’ kitty knows where there is a safe place and a kind heart.
