My Name is Bliss


You can not imagine how grateful I am to meet you. My mother rescued me just over two years ago. I was by the side of a busy road, wet from an all-day, spring rain, and I was only a little fuzz ball. I was about five weeks old.

She took me in, dried me off and gave me a bowl of warmed milk. I have been here ever since.

Look at me now! I am the Queen!

I have grown up to be a gorgeous child. My Dr. Ashby says that my genes didn't know if I wanted to be long hair or short hair, so I'm a bit of both. I don't know what genes are or what the heck he was talking about. But, sweetheart, I do know that I am beautiful!

Mommy said she named me Bliss because of the joy I brought to her heart, but she has other names for me too. I answer to Blissie or Miss. Bliss, but I don't care for it very much when see calls me Smart Ass. Even though she says it with love and affection.

I love to spend time looking out windows. I wonder if mom is going to finish raking all those leaves.

My favorite spot to sleep is on my mother's best chair in the living room. She put a fuzzy, yellow blanket on the chair so I can be more comfy. She doesn't care how many of my black hairs stick to the blankie either. She is the best!

I have the best life! I play and sleep every day. My bowls are always full and my mom loves me. I love her too.

Hi Kathleen,

Looking at our falling leaf photos - looks like you are a few weeks ahead of us down here in Charlotte. Our leave are just starting to fall and blow all over. I guess my hometown is on the same "Fall" schedule.

BLISS is a beauty. I had a cat like her - she was a beautiful gray cat with long hair and a short undercoat.

You spoil your Bliss well, I can see. She deserves it. So elegant a cat, she is! I love the name you chose for her.

Hi Mary,
Thanks for the lovely comments. I do adore and spoil Bliss. Her whole purpose is to be spoiled.

Enjoy your leaves. They will be gone all too soon.

Kathleen said...

Thanks, Annette. I do love my girl. Bliss sends grettings to Skye.

What a wonderful thing you did, I can imagine Bliss how frightened you must of been, just being little and out in that nasty world, you look like you have grown into a lovely cat. I invite you to come by.
