Pets 244/365

Linking with Faith at Simplicity for this week's photo challenge-pets.  Yay, something I have on hand.  Not much hunting around required for this challenge.

 "Princess P"

I love my pets.  Pets have always been a huge part of my life.  This little lady I adopted from the animal shelter about 1 1/2 years ago. Her age was believed to be 10.  Everyone said I was so "good" choosing an older cat.  Truth be known....she chose me.

She is my first cat ever.  I had no idea how much I would love her.  Strangely, of all the 50+ cats at the shelter that day, her name Abbie, was the same as the dog I had lost 6 months earlier.  I took that as a sign.

I didn't have space in my heart for another Abbie, so I made her first name an initial and named her after the princess in Mozart's opera The Magic Flute.  Many of my friends mocked me and said the name was stupid.  I don't care, I like it and so does she.

I share often photos of "my girls".  I think Tula might get her little nose out of joint if I don't throw in a  recent snap of her as well.  Just to keep things on even keel, here's my other joy.  Not as fond of the camera, but equally fond of me.  I am so lucky.
