Lake Pictures

These three pictures were taken at a lake that is around here - Willow Creek Lake.

You can see this lake while driving by. It truly is breath taking, and one of my favorite things to see.

I thought you all might enjoy these pics.

My Sunshine ...

This sweet purr is my other cat, Summerset.

She joined the family around early March, 06. Twix was about 2 then, and was not too pleased about the new comer. Summer & Twix got along okay, but you could tell Twix would be much happier being the only one. -Which was a shame, because Summer was meant to be her little companion. They would have their moments of sweetness, though. Sometimes I would catch the two of them sleeping together on my bed, or Summerset grooming Twix --Or vice versa.

Summerset will be 3yrs this year. Gosh, I can hardly believe it! I remember when she was just a tiny little ball of grey fluff!

When Twix went missing, Summerset became very affectionate & close to me. Sleeping at night without Twix on my bed was very hard, -Still is. Summer must have knew that, because since then, she will jump up and either sleep where Twix use to, or lay on me for a few minutes. I think Summer knows I have been having a hard time without Twix. I am very grateful to this sweet purr for helping me through things. Though she doesn't fill in that empty space I have in my heart where Twix has left; She truly is a ray of sunshine in my life.

Twixy All Dressed Up

I don't really keep track of Catster's blog, but yesterday, while visiting the homepage, I saw an entry that reminded me of Twix.

Skeezix was having a contest for purrs all dressed up. I didn't enter Twix in it, but thought it would be nice to share some of my pictures of her being all "dressed up" here on my blog.

I really can't remember why I dressed her up. I guess it's just some crazy thing pet owners do. And yes, I am crazy!

Twixy at 9-10 weeks old

Aaww. . .If only they would stay this little forever!

Twix is about 9-10 weeks old here in this picture.

One of my favorite memories of her as a kitten was when she would sleep in boxes! She just loved them when she was younger. I remember one night, while laying in bed, I decided to pull out this little red box that was under my bed. I knew Twix was in it. I pulled it out, and there she was ...this little furr ball, curled up! I remember just looking down at her, leaning over in my bed, stroking her furry little head as I was smiling. Twix was a little nipper than, so at that time, I was a bit afraid of petting her. Yes, I know ..I am daft! LOL! But Twix was my first purr, so I didn't know what to expect from a Cat.

Another favorite memory of mine was when she use to walk around the house holding little rubberbands in her mouth. It was so cute to see. She would do the same with small toys. - Just pick them up with her mouth and walk around the house carrying them.

Twix only did one naughty thing when she was a kitten, and that was climbing up curtains. She only did that 3-4 times, and then stopped. I am sad to say that she grew out of these cute little things that she did, but even when older, she still did things that made me smile!
