Wordy Wednesday


I don’t even know where to start to write about Kip.  I imagine everyone thinks their cats are special, but well and true there is something about this boy that is different.  Perhaps it is because I haven’t had a black cat before and I am just so taken by his panther appearance; plush black fur and blazing green eyes under heavy, soulful lids.  He looks like he has lived many lives and has more than a passing familiarity with the secrets of the universe!  I think Kip is tops, and thankfully so do his brothers  :-)

Casper loves Kip
Ben is like Kip's mancat-mum
Archie was unsure at first but he's come around
Kip and Jimmy are inseparable
Kip and me :-)

So wonderful to hear about what a welcomed boy Kip is, and how special he is.

Like humans, there are some cats who have a deeper level of spirituality (even though they ALL seem to have a better connection than we do!)
And what a wonderful relationship it is when you connect with them in that special way?!
I'm so glad you and Kip found each other. But then maybe it was karma....

Black cats are very special. I have three here and they are all special in their own ways.We are so glad that Kip is getting along with everyone so well. Love the pictures. Take care.

Black cats are very special and Kip is a handsome fellow - mum had a black cat a few years ago and he used to be her bodyguard!

It's so wonderful how Kip has fit right in with the other boys. Looking at these interactions with them and you, he certainly seems like a real sweetie!

You must attract loving kitties.

I believe pets take on the personalities of their owners. You are both very calm, laid back accepting people. The senior kitties are the same way and thus Kip has slipped right as if he has been there before...I commend you on how you such a short adjustment period. You should write a book on how you did it
Hugs Madi and Mom

What a wonderful post. So happy that all is so well. Kip does look like a such a sweetheart. There is something very captivating about black cats, they are like miniature panthers (I felt that with my first cat Doogie.)
