I'm having a rough time in my rehab, which is always two steps forward, one step back. So I'm posting one from my archives.
In August 2014, my husband and I picked up a brother-sister pair of oriental shorthair kittens from our breeder. This collage was a gift for the woman who breeds these lively, social, charming cats.
Oriental shorthairs are close relatives of Siamese, and are sometimes described as the "greyhounds of the cat breeds": they are long and tall and skinny with long faces and big ears. As for the spiral tails, well, spirals can mean many things, but in the nature religion I practice they stand for regeneration and renewal. That's the kind of energy I need these days!
I'm so sorry about your loss, Angie. I've lost five beloved cats, so I know what you're going through. Freud had an apt phrase for it: "The work of mourning."
