Caturday Art: Look of Love

First I want to take a moment to thank everyone for the sweet messages and prayers that my family has received this week since my Mom's heart attack. My dear friend Cathy Keisha of the pawsome Stunning Keisha blog even started a #pawcircle on Twitter for us. Words cannot express how much your thoughts have meant to me, and they appear to have worked, too! Mom is home and is feeling much better, just very tired and weak, which I'm sure is to be expected given what she's been through.

It's hard to believe that yesterday's post was my 1000th blog post! Starting this blog was one of the very best things I have ever done. Writing about cats and books everyday, while at the same time becoming friends with some pretty amazing people, it's no wonder that blogging has become my passion.

Needless to say, between Mom's health scare and the one year anniversary of Tara's passing, this has been an incredibly difficult week. While recently going through a bunch of pictures for Tara's memorial collage, I came across the one I'm using for this week's Caturday Art post. I don't even remember taking it, and it must have been taken shortly after I adopted her, because she never spent much time laying in the sink. Her beauty in this picture just takes my breath away. I used the heart-shaped bokeh filter in Pho.to and think it came out just beautiful.
