{this moment} 02/04/11

{this moment} - a Friday ritual. A single photo capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.


Our darling cat Phoebe has started to allow Kylie to pet her. Kylie can still be a bit heavy handed with Phoebe and continues to get right into her face. I'm teaching Kylie what cats like and don't like but it takes a lot of reiteration. I've told Kylie to compliment Phoebe on her soft fur and pretty eyes in a soft voice before reaching out. And I've told her that Phoebe would like to hear about Kylie's day at school. So Kylie walks over and whispers little tidbits before petting Phoebe. It's very sweet.

Phoebe ends up running away because Kylie will grab her paw or tail or whiskers. And after Kylie goes to bed, Phoebe comes to me meowing her complaints and demanding affection to make up for any abuse.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

so cute. Riley doesn't care about the animals a whoel lot unless it's dragging the puppy around by the leash. Jackson LOVES animals. He smoothers our 12 yo cat every time and I try to teach him gentle and we don't climb on top of our poor elderly cat but he doesn't get it. LOL. We really do owe our pets for the abuse they put up with!!! ;)

What an AMAZING image. Just love it :)

So sweet with the kitty. Both girls love our 3 cats, and the cats have moved from sleeping in our room to sleeping with them. Just love it (and love having more space in our bed!)
