Big Cats

When I was a little girl, my family would visit the Dallas Zoo often.  My favorite exhibit was the big cat building.  I thought the striped tigers and spotted leopards were the most beautiful!

A few years ago, my heart ached for a cat.  My grown family went with me to the animal shelter and we looked at all the cats.  There I was, a little girl again, looking at cats.  One striped kitten was looking back at me through the cage.  I fell in love.  I took her home and named her Elizabeth.  She chased every shadow!  She grew up and loved the outdoors.  Here are some pictures of my little/ big cat.

I keep telling Elizabeth she shouldn't wear her pajamas outside!
Do you have a favorite cat?



  1. She is so beautiful. We do not have cats, but several of our neighbors do and they always walk through our yard and our Daughter has five.


  2. Of course I have a cat I ♥. Come see me this Pink Saturday☺
