You, Me and Kitty










Today (Friday, October 4, 2013) is World Animal Day. The mission of World Animal Day is to
-Celebrate animal life in all its forms,
-Celebrate humankind's relationship with the animal kingdom,
-Acknowledge the diverse roles that animals play in our lives-from being our companions, supporting and helping us, to bringing a sense of wonder into our lives.
-Acknowledge and be thankful for the way in which animals enrich our lives.

Happy World Animal Day, everyone!

Oooh, so sweet! Cute baby Alpaca visiting the land of nod!

I didn't knew that this date is dedicated to animals.I like animals especially these that grow up in house with the people that have them but this period are happening many bad accidents in people around us that these accidents care me more.

thanks for the smiles and laughs, the kittens made me get a silly grin on my face, the cats in color or black and white made me smile and Monty made me laugh out loud... Animals Rock, wish everyone felt the way we do.

Lovely kitties Betty, my kitties have been so funny lately; can't stop taking photos of them. That little alpaca is so cute. I had some Italian friends who had alpacas and bred them. I remember their little chocolate calf one year, they called him Cappuccino! How sweet is that?

The photo of the kittens is wonderful. They look as if they were ready to just pop off the page and chase something, especially the yellow one. So mischievous looking. Loved the video, too.

Hi Betty,
I just love your amazing blog.
You see I LOVE ANIMALS!
I AM ALSO AN ADVOCATE FOR ANIMALS.
(((HAPPY WORLD ANIMALS DAY!)))
I feel that animals day is every single day for me. I love them!
I see your beautiful cats.
My hubby and I live with our 3 cats. We used to have 10 at one point. Many of them crossed the rainbow bridge due to illness or old age. Frank, our eldest cat, lived almost up to 18 years old when he passed away.
We love and miss him so much!
I adore the video of the baby alpaca. Thanks for sharing it!
Where I come from birth, the Andes Mountains, there are many alpacas there, where their original natural habitat is.
The alpaca wool is very fine, warm and gorgeous. My hubby gave me a ruana in black and white for my birthday made of alpaca wool.
Thank you for posting your heartfelt comments in my blogs!
Welcome Aboard, Betty!
Have a happy and blessed day!
Poet Starry Dawn.

Rick said...

Great shots, Betty.

Yes, they do bring us much pleasure - our Samoyed, Sasha is such an integral part of our lives. It's too bad their lives are so short relative to a human's.

Enjoy your weekend.

Red Nomad OZ said...

I once read that if your dog sits on your lap on the sofa it's because he wants to be with you. But if your cat sits on your lap its because you're sitting where HE wants to sit!!! All the same, those pix are SOOOOOOO cute!! Hope you're having a great weekend!!

Riot Kitty said...

Aww! Thanks! I am sorry to get to this so late!

Taki dzień przypomina ludziom, że należy szanować zwierzęta. Zdjęcia kotków są śliczne i kochane. Pozdrawiam.

Pat Tillett said...

I had no idea about the day. Love these photos Betty! The cute little faces on the kittens are priceless.

Lowell said...

Love the post. We adopted two tortoise-shell kitties (twin girls) a couple of months ago...they're much bigger now. So loving and so much fun even though they tend to tear up the house! One (Cassandra) has bonded with Lois and one (Cleopatra) with me. In fact, at this moment, Cleo is sleeping in my top left desk drawer, which is her drawer and once in awhile she lets me put some stuff in it! :)
