There have been holidays and celebrations that are just too numerous to mention. But one thing that happened that I'm simply tickled about is Ms. Patty and Mr. K are now one. Yes, my pretties, they were married on February 2, 2013. Meow!
Mr. K surprised Ms. Patty by proposing to her in December, right before Christmas. Oh, we've all been just thrilled about their tying the knot! Their celebration was at a local Italian restaurant (I wasn't invited, imagine the feast I would have enjoyed!) with their closest family members and best friends. Their ceremony was a Celtic one called hand-fasting, you'll have to Google it, it's quite interesting. Their rings are beautiful, with Celtic designs and Ms. Patty's has a pretty square diamond with two emeralds on either side going down the band.
Well, you can read more about them at Ms. Patty's blog. This is my blog and I have something to say.
Ms. Patty has been using me. Yes, using me. How? Photographing me while I'm asleep. She knows I don't like to have my picture taken, especially if I haven't had time to groom myself and look my very best.
I give her nudgies by pressing my forehead against her chin - repeatedly, I rub against her leg with my silky fur, I talk to her about my day when she gets home. I even offer to lick her dinner plate clean, Mr. K's too! And all I ask is that she allow me to look beautiful when she photographs me.
She's been participating in a photo a day challenge and she used me in her latest photo. Why, I didn't even know she had taken the picture until last night when she was on the computer and I saw myself! Oh, I let her know I was upset by meowing at the screen and touching the keyboard but she didn't understand. I ran off and curled up in my bed by the heat vent behind the couch. I was so embarrassed.
Ms. Patty came and found me and explained that people loved how I looked in the photo. That I was pretty and adorable, and that I should be flattered by their compliments. Well, I looked at it again and you know what? I do look purrtty hot. Meow...
Ms. Patty: Stella, I'm going to put your picture out here if you don't mind,
since it seems you like it after all. It is a rather pretty one of you.
Stella: Yes, Ms. Patty, you may.
Ms. Patty: I love you, Stella.
Stella: I love you too, Mommy.
