Ah, she's lovely - doesn't look too impressed with her current read though!

She just likes to hang out on my legs and/or lap and keep me company ;)

Gorgeous and well-read too. The whole cat package!

So, I can't recall if I've mentioned it here or not, but I have this large stuffed Mountain Lion I got years ago (about knee high to me). Starla loves to wrestle with him (her??), but usually only during the night - I just find him knocked over in the mornings. She accomplished quite a feat last night though. I headed out to the kitchen and found him moved two feet from his corner. Second pic is my happy girl enjoying Saturday morning with mom.

She's lost about two pounds from the weight she was carrying after all that time in the shelter. The volunteers at the shelter had told me her the hair on her belly never grew back properly after her snips, but now that she's lost a fair amount of that, she's got a gorgeous belly with lots of furry-purry goodness.

Haha, I took the 'stuffed mountain lion' comment literally, and had to click to see how a little cat could budge anything that big. :p

I'm at a loss how she managed that. I find him knocked on his side all the time. It only happens when I'm asleep or at work. :p

Hooray for healthy fuzzy kitten belly. She has such big, clear, pretty eyes.

I got about the best snuggle this morning with Gossamer and Penelope, lazing in bed a little while. A purring cat nestled against the belly is pretty great.
