Small Celebrations - October 11, 2013

Once again it's Friday and time to happily participate in VikLit's wonderful blog hop marking the small celebrations that make life special.  Why don't you participate?  Details are at the end of this post.

We commemorate small celebrations, and this week I'm posting about one of my smallest.

cold morning, affectionate little girlfriend - happiness!
She is seven pounds, ten years old, chocolate brown, feisty and very sweet.  Her name is Frida and she came to me in May of 2005 through the kind generosity of a friend.  Frida is a Burmese cat, a breed that originated on the Malayan peninsula.  Go to Thailand and Burma and you will find little brown cats walking in the streets.  This little girl's ancestors came to the United States in 1930, accompanying a sailor who had taken ship at Kowloon.

I've loved Burmese since 1965.  I have owned them since 1980. 

In her I have my best little girlfriend, my feisty little angel, and a peppery but sweet companion.  Who could ask for more?  She's worth celebrating!


  1. Finally, a picture of your Burmese. Seems I have been asking for one for a long time, dear Diana! What a gorgeous coat; and those eyes. Glad you posted Frida's picture.

  2. She's worth the Celebration! I have 2 furry ones myself and love them to death!

  3. Nothing better than snuggles with your fur-baby! :) Have a good weekend!

  4. beautiful animal, pets are always the best things to celebrate! I recently added a stray cat to my little zoo, and he has made such a home for himself here, loves the dogs, is great with the kids. I am so blessed! Hugs!

  5. I'm sure she appreciates you as much as you do her.

  6. Nothing like wonderful, sensitive pets to know how to tug those heart strings. Nice history tale you've told. Writer’s Mark

  7. Your kitty is adorable, and definitely worth celebrating. Since we have two super cuddly cats, I guess I get to celebrate twice. Cheers! Cheers!

  8. Hi Diana .. I love cats but have always had moggies ... they do endear themselves to us .. but I love their independence too ... definitely worth celebrating .. Cheers Hilary
