Stella is often of a mind to spend her mornings in relative peace and seclusion…which is found in the spot under my bed. A wise choice. And a serene, albeit dusty environment. Ah well. What are dust bunnies compared to blessed peace and quiet? Happy napping sweet Stella!
Happy Caturday from Stella! This photo was taken a few weeks ago. She loves her sunbeam perch and sometimes she’s nice enough to share it with me. I think she just likes to sit by me so I’ll protect her from the kids. One day they’ll learn consistent gentleness but until then…sunbeam on, Stella the patient one.
Look at that fierce beast. I love the mix of emotion going on here. There’s annoyance and a bit of anger but you can tell she still loves me 🙂
Stella proved to be an adept hunter this spring. She caught and killed 2 mice in just a few days.
I’m a bit embarrassed to admit we had mice. Stella, on the other hand couldn’t have been happier with the situation. She watched the furnace vent in the kitchen for hours until the moment arrived…to pounce!
I missed her catching the first one but found her beside it in J’s room one morning. The second one I saw her catch and watched her play with it. It was very entertaining to watch. Wish I would have recorded it.
We haven’t had any trouble with mice since. Perhaps word has gotten around about our furry and feirce huntress. Thanks Stella!
Happy Caturday! I realize I haven’t properly introduced the 5th member of our family. This is our cat Stella. Really she’s my cat but we all love her. Even my husband who says he dislikes cats.
We adopted Stella 3/11/2015 from a local pet store. She was transferred there from the animal shelter. Stella was labeled as a domestic short hair mixed breed and 3 years old. That makes her 5 years old today.
My husband says he doesn’t like cats. But he loves me. And I love cats. Thus Stella. She adds joy to my life. She is a sweet companion and so understanding and patient with the kids.
I knew she was the cat for us when she stuck her little paw out of her cage and batted playfully at my son. J giggled and I fell in love with this sweet little ball of fur. Our Stella.
