She comes out of the sun in a silk dress
running like a watercolor in the rain,
Don't bother asking for explanations,
She'll just tell you that she came
in the year of the cat....

"Make yourselves at home. Can I get you guys a Coke, a footstool or something?"
"Is this supposed to confuse me?"
"Are you dreaming of your yoga class?"
"It must be a tiring life as the smallest kitten in a 3-cat household...."
"While I certainly appreciate the present, I don't know who to thank for it---because each of you needs forgiveness for something or other...."
"What, Peaches? Asleep again? Are you dreaming of how you're going to aggravate me the next time? (Or, is it as I suspect--- you're just flat out lazy.....)"
"Peaches! Do you do anything but sleep?"
"Glad to see y'all bonded finally...."
Below is an updated pic of Peaches in her still developing coloring. If you saw the pic of her tiny little self a few weeks ago you would have seen that she, like all Ragdolls, was born white---with those famous blue eyes. The literature said that a Ragdoll's coloring only develops to its full extent by age 2 or 3 years. We are seeing changes by the month. (The dark spot in the right eye is part of her coloring there. The dark spot in the more whitish left eye is "sleepy stuff". Poor little thing had to endure some scrubbing in the right eye by Blaine until he figured out that it was simply her coloring there....)
After getting her examined and getting her papers done, her official breed coloring is a "Seal Tortie Point Bi-color" Ragdoll. Everybody who sees her is completely enchanted by her beauty and I practically have to drag her out of their arms because they don't want to put her down. I was scolding her for something the other day and Blaine said: "How can you get angry with a face like that?" He was right---it's very difficult!! Unfortunately, this has made her so spoiled that she practically runs the house!
