My darling Smokey was my very first rescue kitty and birthday present, May 2000. She had been found with her Mother , living on the street and the lady at Petsmart rescued them and kept them in her den while they were regaining their health. When I first brought her home, you could not pick her up. Her legs would go rigid and she would scratch and claw to be let down. It took many months before she got used to me and even longer to accept other humans. September of that year, I adopted Snowball to be her friend. Now, my beautiful and elegant Smokey is my constant companion, sleeping within the curl of my arm each night. She will tap me on the shoulder to roll over and hold her. Such a precious blessing in my life.
Smokey is an Oriental Tuxedo kitty. She is my darling honey girl who is my constant companion when I am at home Right now she is sitting on the edge of my desk just enjoying my company, looking just about like this. At night, she lets me know when it is time to settle down on the couch so that she can be a lap kitty.
This was the very first photo I took with my Nikon D200 camera five years ago.
