Sweet Bella is no cat.


I took this picture of Bella a couple of days ago and I love it. Timm and Rachelle said she looks concerned, which maybe she does a little bit, but I think it's sweet. I love her pouty lips and her eyes. I love having this little girl to be the subject of countless photo shoots and scrapbook pages. Just think... If I didn't have her, I may have become one of those people who makes entire album for her cats. I love my cats, and I can see doing a page or 2 about them because they are important to me, but not whole albums. You know those people who call their pets their kids? Yeah, well they never had kids. (I hope no one reading this is offended, but it's true.) I am a self-professed animal-lover, even animal spazz. My parents were kind to indulge this love from an early age and let me acquire the following animals, which we owned (mostly)one at a time: countless cats, 3 dogs, 3 rabbits, millions of 'feeder' fish, 1 mouse, 4 lizards, 1 horse, and an almost lamb. Since living under my parents roof I have also owned several rats, (they really make great pets, I swear!) 2 snakes and 2 hairless cats. (they deserve a class of their own.) I have been a Petco manager, and worked at my favorite job ever as a Veterinary Technician for 5 years.I am still a self-professed animal lover, but no matter how much you love them (A *lot* in my case) they are still simply, not kids. Luckily, I can have it both ways.
(wow, that kind or ran away with me. I had nothing but a picture of Bella to post and it spiraled into a whole post about "animal- kids.")

Thanks for not putting a picture of the cats next to this sweet photo of Bella. She does look concerned, but that's just one of her many looks right? That's the beauty of taking tons of pictures of babies--they're always changing and have so many expressions that it's fun to document them all. I hope you post the scrapbook pages too. (Oh and the pictures of your new scrap space.)

I ditto everything you said in this blog. I too am an animal lover but my kids are first when it come to pictures and anything else in life! I think this picture is great. I really like up close up and personal photos. Plus- you have an adorable subject to work with!

I'm glad that you're not a freako animal lover, you're just a normal animal lover, which in my opinion is a great quality! And when did you have a horse and why have I never heard aobut it?

OK, I am glad you are not one of those people who makes albums about your cats. I guess you do have some restraint, even if you are a crazy cat lady! I love this picture of Bella and I think she looks exactly like Timm in it (moreso than I have ever seen the resemblance before). She does look concerned, and that means there's some real thought going on in her little brain!

Love the picture! She sooo looks like Timm in it.

I remember having a conversation about animal scrappers with you at some point, and I was glad at the time that you were not the "animal-mommie" scrapping type.

She looks beautiful! Very sweet.

I join the throngs who are grateful that you haven't made a cat album. This picture of Bella is so darn cute--and I also agree that she looks a LOT like Timm (not that Timm necessarily has a look of concern continually on his face).

Also, please elaborate on the pet termed "almost lamb."

Timm said...

Why does everybody think I look concerned all the time?? Also, I have never been good at seeing which parent kids look like and I'm sorry to say that I still can't see it. In this case, I think it is because I live with her, and she look like herself more than anyone else...I guess another way to explain what I mean is: It's the same reason that twins look identical to strangers, but like two different people to their close friends and family.

I just want to kiss that face!! If I wasn't so sleepy , I would enumerate about Rita'a "kids"--Jess, you might have to fill everyone in! No danger, so go ahead! Love love love that face.
