A portrait of my very old & most wonderful feline Tia…

I found her homeless just barely surviving life along the Ct. River when she was just a young lady, exact age unkown… Her now gorgeous long thick orange-white fur all matted up & knotted.. Her emerald green eyes looking so scared yet full of hope… I coaxed her into my arms & I took her home with me. Oh no I thought… Another responsiblitie in my life is about to accour.. Perhaps I will find her a home I thought.. I cut off her snarled hair to grow again… Picked off the ticks attached to her tiny boney body & bathed her… She consumed lots of food & drink and in less than a day I decided to keep her home with me… She is dble paw-ed in the front with a crackleing high pitched voice & a cry that of a babies. She is extremely feminine and gentle.. She walks like a runway model, one paw placed intently in front of the other and a sultry wiggle to boot… She is a "Cover feature "kind of calendar cat… She is special also because is she is gentle & loving back at me along to other people & other animals of all species… She is special too because she made my quality of life better starting the day she roamed out from the woods along the river & into my life. Did I mention she has the looks of a top leading calender cat? She’s a 10 & is just simply special across the board… :) Thanks for cking her out here..
