“Indeed, there is nothing on this earth more peaceful than a sleeping, purring cat.” 
Jonathon Scott Payne American Author

Since today seems to be a day to appreciate cats, I thought we should celebrate another kitty that totally epitomizes this quote. 

At my request, my friend Kini adopted another cat. This kitty’s mommy was moving to the mainland and needed a safe home for him. She knew he was a challenge because he likes to talk a lot and definitely has an opinion of his own. But Kini doesn’t mind kitties who chatter… well, not too much. 

She kept requesting, maybe a bit of pleading too, that I try to find someone else to take this kitt… and, I did try. Now remember I’m in New York State trying to find a home for a kitty in Hawaii. But after several offers that I knew would not be ideal for Spinney, that’s this kitty’s name, I returned to Kini and said PLEASE!!! 

And when I said, “PLEASE!” though I was already on the mainland and unable to bribe her with dinner, she came to the rescue.

And wonderful cat lover that she is, arrangements were made, and Karen was able to take her precious Spinny over to Kini…

And as you can see from the picture Spinney is a very contented kitty…

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful if people could purr?
