All weekend while I was busy sewing, the little guys were runnin wild. The came flying across the sewing table sending my basket of notions onto the floor and scattering bobbins, pins, screwdriver etc. all over the floor. They danced on the countertops, dug in the trash can and made general pests of themselves. Mommy wasn't paying enough attention to them!
Tipper was off doing her best to avoid it all by taking a prolonged nap.
But Deiter, my darling boy, was right there laying quietly behind the sewing machine. He was not in the way but was close enough so that I could reach out and pet him and we could make eye contact and talk to each other. He was a calm place in a mess of stress and confusion. He is a wonderful cat! A gentle and intelligent giant who is a joy to live with. (Almost 20 lbs.!) I love all my cats, and am thankful every day for the gift of their presence. But Deiter is a special personality.
I had my camera right there on the sewing table. Every once in a while I would stop, take a sip of coffee and snap a picture of Deiter.
So this is for you, Deiter. In appreciation.
How do I love thee, let me count the ways.....
I love those three perfectly round black spots.
The big furry paw that reaches out to touch me.
The way you lay quietly nearby whlie I'm working.
