Contemplation by Lilyas Contemplation by Lilyas
This is my beloved companion Ben, sitting at the window enjoying the sun (yeah, I know, you can't see the window :giggle:). Isn't he just a GORGEOUS cat? Sometimes I think he is a higher being because he looks so wise, peaceful and serene. He never plays with mice, just kill them with one bite, he never scratches with his claws and he never complains. I just love him so much! :heart:

LOL - Yeah, he owns me indeed, there is no doubt. Darn, I didn't get back to you after you sent me a note. I hope you are fine and recovered, my dear. :hug: I send you my love.

I was sad not to hear back, but life does take over.  I'm ok thanks, except I don't cope well with the heat wave we're having.

My love to you too :hug:

Mostly I am quite busy and so it can happen that a message gets burried. Sorry sweetheart. for you

I would be very happy if we could have a conversation again, one way or the other. What do you think about getting a call from me? Just tell me when.
Oh well, around here it's very hot, too.Sweat Emoticon It hasn't rained for weeks and the earth is bone-dry. We have to sprinkle the whole garden every evening.

Cats do tend to do that (contemplate, I mean), don't they. I'm a sucker for cat photographs and I really like Ben's close up. Very handsome.
