Wordy Wednesday Challenge

I picked the word benevolent to describe my Casper because in the truest definition of the word he is: characterized by or expressing goodwill or kindly feelings.  From Casper's first day with us we knew he was a very special cat, not only for his striking appearance but his gentle demeanor.  We have brought four other cats into our house during Casper's princely reign and he has welcomed each and every one of them with openhearted, brotherly love.  Casper is a treasure.


I picked the word affable to describe Archie because he really is such an easygoing, friendly fellow. When we got him as a kitten he was quite hyper but he has mellowed into a happy and generous mancat equally relaxed when company comes over or alone with the family.  Archie is a treat to be around.
Now let me just finish by saying that the Wordy Wednesday challenge was understandably limited to two cats per household.  All my boys are so precious to me that it was very difficult to choose who would participate.  I selected Casper first because he is the oldest, but for the second spot I had to resort to names in a hat to make it fair to Archie, Ben and Jimmy :-)

And finally thank you Judi for my lovely pictures!

I think the benevolence and affability of your lovely boys is in direct proportion to the love and care that you have given them!I'm sure they were born with the potential to be special guys (most cats are!), but with your companionship, they became the sweetest gentlest kitties imaginable.
The love in your home shows in their eyes!!!

Great words. It would be hard to choose between the group.

Natalie said...

Those are great! Casper really seems like such a sweet boy. I have always had strange and standoffish cats so cats like Casper are just a mystery to me. You and your other kitties are lucky to have him!

Everytime mum comes onto your blog she stares at your lovely header from the picture that Michico painted for you for ages before she moves on - she loves it. We didn't get to visit much yesterday cos mum went shopping with her friend but she read it to us today and we loved it.
