Last week was a tough week and I just didn’t feel up to posting to my blog. Our precious family cat, Button died. We were lucky to have him with us for the past 10 years. We miss him so very much. I have had other pets who have died over the years, but it just doesn’t seem to get any easier. They bring such joy and love to our lives.
We adopted him from a shelter when he was just a few months old.
At the shelter, they named him Button because they thought he was “Cute as a Button.” We totally agreed!
It was right before Halloween and they were having an adopt a black cat day. It was a Saturday and I was at work at my photography studio. My daughter called me between shoots and said that she and her dad were at the shelter and she asked if she could get a cat. (For the past few months, she had been visiting the shelter after her horseback riding lessons. ) I said, “What did your dad say?” She said, “He said I could if you said I could.”
So when I got home that night, we had a new member of the family. And he was most definitely, Cute as a Button!
Hopefully I will get back to painting and posting new art to my blog soon. I am off to my WP reader to catch up on what all of you blogger friends have been posting.
Have a wonderful, creative day, Janell
