Our 3 yrs together

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Sharon Lee's Virtual Assistance

Good afternoon everyone-Tomorrow is a special day for Shadow and I.  We have been together for 3 yrs.  I had no intention of getting another kitty after my kitty Lindsey died on March 5 2012 but life has a way of surprising you and on July 12, 2012  I rescued my beautiful. loving, affectionate and pesky kitty Shadow.  I will be forever grateful and blessed for finding Shadow and bringing her home.

It was a rocky start as she was afraid of her own "Shadow and that is why she was given that name.  She has brought so much love, joy and happiness into my life the last 3 yrs. Something I never thought I would have again from a kitty.  She is very affectionate and is never far away when I am inside. She loves to be loved and she loves to eat and I would say that it is pretty even which she likes more.

When she wants food or affection she is quite persistent and can be pesky. She will give me love bites if she doesn't get enough or I am not getting either fast enough or enough period.  She makes me smile, laugh and fills my heart with happiness and love.

THIS IS MY VERY FIRST PIC AFTER I BROUGHT HER HOME

 

These are some of the first pics I took of Shadow when I was living in Mom's house. It is fun looking back and seeing the pics I took and seeing how much she has grown and how far she has come since that first day. She has come a long ways. She was a yr old when I got her and quite frisky. She loved MY blanket which I gave to her because she would jump on the side of the bed and pull it off and she loved to play on the bed and dig the covers. Thankfully I wasn't in the bed when she did that. She has calmed down and doesn't do that as much. 

 

I love this one because this is in my bedroom in Mom's house and I would go up to the window when I was outside and she would hiss and growl at me and if I touched the screen she would swat at me.  I thought she might have outgrown that but she will still do that if I stand outside the window where she is looking out except it is outside my woman cave window.

One of Shadow's fav spots to lay. The front window on this stool in the sun.

OR SLEEP

Or watch the activity outside

She also has a fav chair, My computer chair.

They say there are no coincidences and maybe that is true because I had been in the Petsmart many times but never been back where she was in that little cage where they had the rescue kitties.  I just know my life is richer and happier because I opened my heart again to a sweet, loving, pesky kitty that I named Shadow because of her fear.  Love can make such a difference in a pets life and ours. She needed me as much as I needed her.  I look forward to many more anniversaries with my beautiful Shadow.

It's a wonderful thing to open one's heart to a pet who is unwanted.  Glad Shadow found a great home!

Oh Sharon, Shadow looks like my Baby Grey (we had to send her on an extended vacation with Larry's secretary).  I am so glad you have her and I know Shadow must be happy to be with you.  My favorite photo is the one where she is sleeping and has her paw over her eyes.

Kathy-It is hard to lose a pet. That is why I didn't plan on getting another kitty but so very glad fate intervened. She is a sweet baby and happy. I like that one too. Sorry about your Baby Grey.

I always say it's the pets who end up rescuing us. Love the 4th pic; the eyes really pop in that one. And great name ... my Sheltie that I adopted five years ago is also named Shadow!

Hi, Sharon...I love all of your pictures of Shadow. Those blanket shots are extra cute, though. She certainly has filled out since she's come to you. Soon it will be four years you have been together.

Ohhhh...I'm so glad I came back to visit these pictures. I really think the one of her looking out the screen is funny. 

I'm so glad you both found each other. It was kismet.
