Tessa (023/365)

"There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats."

Albert Schweitzer (Alsatian Theologian, 1875-1965)

TIME: 6:50 PM
PLACE: DramaQueen's Bedroom 

My oldest daughter and her daddy brought Tessa home about 3 months after StellaDella was born.  HandsomeHusband volunteered to pick DramaQueen from school one afternoon and made a side trip to Animal Control.  I was quite surprised when they entered the house with a small pet carrier and a tiny kitten inside.  We already had one cat, Sgt. Tibbs,  I had a 3-month old to contend with and I must say I wasn't too happy about the turn of events.  Nevertheless, I went online to find cat names for our female addition and DramaQueen ended up choosing "Tessa".  She is DramaQueen's cat and spends most of her time upstairs where the dog cannot annoy her.

Your cat looks a lot like ours. Her name is Cleo - as in Cleopatra because she thinks she is a queen!
PS - my fortune was - You will re-connect with old friends.

Mari - Love your cat's name! And I hope your fortune comes true.

ETW - Thanks, she is hard to capture as she is pretty skittish (because of the dog!)

Robert - DramaQueen picked out a good one!

Adorable kitty cat!! Very regal looking too! Really nice photo.

I think our pets make the best subjects for photography as they don't roll their eyes at us when the lens is pointed at them!

Dot O - The cats don't roll their eyes, but they sure can give me the "look"!
