Daily Photo: A Portrait of Me

“For my most precious Mademoiselle…”

My most elegant and precious Mademoiselle Daisy Emerald Marguerite,

I have asked Mama Bernadette to take a photo of me for you to keep near you. I practiced my head tilt with my brother Mr. Sunshine and posed specially for this photo, just for you, my pretty flower. If you look closely, you’ll see that my eyes are full of love for ebony princess. Trust me when I say that my heart is also full of love for my gem, my emerald-eyed princess, and every heart beat echoes through the air to the north where you live in pastoral splendor by the lake in the the tiny town in the Frontenac, in Canada.

Mademoiselle, not a day goes by that I do not spend time thinking of how lucky I am that you are in my life. How elegantly and fearlessly you and your Mama Denise manage your illness that many humans and cats would fear—the needles, the tests, constant observation. You have set a standard for other cats, and while I am not the bravest mancat you have given me fortitude.

Now, as the autumn arrives and the leaves are turning bright colors and begin to fall, I gaze out the big north window toward the place where you live and think of how lovely your ebony fur would be with a backdrop of yellow and red leaves, your emerald eyes sparkling.

Soon the snow will fall and the short days invite cuddling, and I will dream of you in a red brocade bed by the fire, or napping in the sun.

You have my heart forever,



[Mr. Sunshine is very pleased with his student.]
