Cats, Kitties & Grandma Kitty

I have always loved cats. I am not sure where this loved began, but I have a feeling it started with my Grandma Kitty. How cool to have a name like that. It fit her too. She was actually a Kathryn. Kit then Kitty became her name through the years. Grandma Kitty to me. She was a wonderful woman. She will always be a part of me. This picture was taken of us in a photo booth in 1978. It's a favorite and is blown up and framed in my home. Grandma Kitty also had a copy. Can you feel the love just by looking at this picture? My bond with her was incredible. At one time I thought I would name a daughter after her. Kathryn. Call her Kat. Unfortunately, as much as Sergio loved Grandma Kitty, he wasn't so crazy for this name. I am so blessed to have had her in my life.

As a child, I was told I was allergic to cats. I didn't know that I wasn't until one day when I got my hands on one. My first cat, Inky, came into my life when I was 12. From that day till today, I have always had at least one cat at a time, sometimes several. I have been blessed with many felines though the years..

I also seem to acquire several cat pieces over the years. People know I love cats, people gift cat stuff to me.
Kitty Knickknacks.
I have had a ton of cat stuff! I so appreciate it, but also, over the past 40-some years, I received plenty. Most get appreciated, then past on. Some have stayed with me. I have a few favorite pieces that I will keep forever. These are some of those golden oldies that I love.
I am done collecting kitty knickknacks.

However, I will always have a cat or two, but the pet kind.

Hi Janis,i love the photo of you and your grandmother, yes, i can see the love!
my husband is a huge cat lover, he had 2 that died a couple years ago, we haven't decided to get another yet, it doesn't seem fair to the poor kitty when we go away so much!

Love the photo of you and your Grandma Kitty, and this is another great story.

I love cats as well. We never had them while I was little, but my first boyfriend (of 10 years) and I had several and my love for cats was sealed during that time.

As you know, we now have 1 - Winston. He's wonderful and is even known to pose with a New Year's Hat from time to time. :-)
