HAPPY 9TH BIRTHDAY TO MADI

HAPPY 9TH BIRTHDAY TO OUR PRECIOUS 
MADI
In honor of my birthday, Mom donated a scarf she crocheted to Paws for Peace Auction.
Thanks Mom!!!
THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE PICTURES OF MADI IN 2011
 I found this poem in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Lovin' Our cats.  It describes Madi purrfectly.
It was written for a male cat. I changed it to fit the Diva.

Under her Spell
by
Tami Sandlin
I can feel her watching me
Through golden eyes, unblinking
And I can't help but wonder
Just what it is she is thinking.
I know her habits, I know her ways
But her moods are hard to tell
The only thing I know for sure is
She knows I'm under her spell
For eating she has claimed my nicest dish
To nap, my favorite chair
And anytime I want to sit,
She is comfortably resting there.
For play, she's got expensive toys
To chase and romp and caper
But still she is only happy with
A balled-up piece of paper!
She is always begging for attention
To be scratched beneath her chin
And when my writing takes me away from her
She steals my writing pen!
Despite our unique relationship
People ask "Just who owns who?"
It's really nice to have someone
To look forward to come home to.
And so, I stay enchanted with
This crazy pet of mine
For nothing keeps you spellbound
Like a furry finicky feline.
Madi thank you for making the last 9 years an adventure
We love you Mom and Dad

Well, if it is a question of beauty, I hope I am as beautiful as you are!! That photo really is fabulous...you could be a calender cat or something!!!

    Please tell you Mom thanks for the email and info. We hope that if you Mom and Dad get over our way that they will look us up!!
