Jazmine

It’s Jazmine’s 6th Birthday, but She’s the Gift to Me!

Sleep in? Not on my watch, you won’t!

I’m a very early riser. Some due to the fact I have a day job, requiring I get up to make it to work by 8:30 a.m., and some due to seven restless cats with persistent paws to my face and demanding meows to my ear who insist a minute past 5:30 a.m. is bordering on abuse, because how dare I not have fed them breakfast yet? A lot of it is also simple mathematics – I have too much to do nowadays and getting up early gives me an extra hour or so to get personal things done (i.e., things involving my cat writing world) before I head to work.

Doppelganger Sunday Selfie – Jazmine as Dewey the Library Cat!

It’s National Reading Month, so for Sunday Selfie, I thought this picture of Jazmine from 2014 was absolutely purrfect to share! She’s napping next to one of my favorite books, Dewey the Small Town Library Cat Who Touched the World, looking like she’s Dewey himself, only to grace the cover of her own book, Makin’ Biscuits – Weird Cat Habits and the Even Weirder Habits of the Humans Who Love Them, a scant few years later!!

Happy Sunday everyone – who’s your doppelganger cat? Oh, and if you’re looking for a great read for March, yes, Dewey is a great book, but Y’all,  so is Jazmine’s book –  it won three awards from the Cat Writers’ Association 2016 communications contest! Check it out here on Amazon!

It’s a Blog Hop!

A Happy and Adorable Sunday!

It’s simply impossible to look at Jazmine without smiling…

Jazmine would just like to take a quick break from her regularly scheduled all day snooze-fest to give us one of her purr-fectly trademarked shots in which she is irresistibly adorable! Job well done, Jazmine! Happy Sunday everyone – wishes for a beautiful and peaceful day!  

Happy 5th Birthday to Sweet Jazmine!

Happy Birthday sweet Jazmine!

 

Unbelievable, that cute little pipsqueak that Dan and I fell head over heels in love with when we first saw her up for adoption at the Global Pet Expo in March of 2014 and subsequently adopted (how could we not?) is 5 years old today! How is that possible? It seems like just yesterday she was a tiny, puff of diva fur ruling the household. Now, here she is, a giant puff of diva fur, ruling the household!

My beautiful bundle of ginger fur! She really is one cool cat!

Anyhow, Happy Birthday to my dear, precious Jazmine. I wish I had the time to do a long post in your honor, but it’s just not in the cards for me right now. But I can promise you that you’ll be spoiled even more than you already are. I love you and cherish every second of love, laughter, and sunshine you bring into my heart and the hearts of others.

Cats, Naps, and Sunday…

A whole lotta Jazmine love and wisdom for this Sunday!

I don’t have the time for it, nor do I need another hobby, but sometimes I wish I could take professional quality photos with a professional camera. This image is of my lovely Jazmine that I took with my iPhone that would have been particularly stunning with the right camera. She’s been hanging out with me a lot lately – this is her on the shelf above my computer and I was able to capture her fawning down on me. She’s quite the flirt when she does that – she makes biscuits into the air while purring a love song and it’s about one of the most heart-melting things on this earth.

As always, she serves as a wonderful reminder for Sunday to relax, enjoy your cats, and maybe even take a nap! I know Jazmine will be doing that for sure!

Have a great day everyone!
