Magpie 53

Imagination in a Shaker of Salt
I see you Lucy
Your topaz eyes and
Mischievious nose
Your tail whisking back and forth
Just what will you do now?


Our Lucy has been a mover and shaker since
agreeing to live with us.

Great imagination...Lucy is a salt-shifter! How'd she do that? Magic!

Yes. There's a cat lurking in that salt shaker, and it looks a lot like your Lucy. A very enjoyable Mag.

Cats do intrigue. Beautiful grays in the photo.

thanks everyone for all your nice comments- our kitty is a Korat- old breed from Thailand...but we didn't "buy" her- she was a stray or lost or dropped off. Anyhow- our gain as she is the most intelligent cat we have ever known and she is also so gorgeous with various shades of silvery grey with a triangle of white on her chest. Lucy is perfect. (purrfect)

Kathew,
Yes, I can see Lucy in there---
why is it that cats always try to squeeze into any box, no matter how small?
