#TheGallery - Green is the colour of my true love's eyes..

 Before my Other Half, before the Little Man, before debt, mortgage, business worries, responsibilities... Before all of this there was Saffy, my beautiful tortie cat.

 I got her, flea-ridden at 7 weeks old, and spent a good hour every day for a month, going through her fur with a fine comb to get rid of the little buggers! She has been with me for 16 years, through the good times and the rough times. We've moved house 5 times, she's said hello (and goodbye) to a number of boyfriends (no, I am not going into any more detail!!). She has allowed me to witness the birth of seven gorgeous kittens and for the last couple of years she has put up with almost constant attention from Riley...
I cannot imagine life without her.

Her eyes are the most stunning shade of jade green - no photograph I have taken does them justice but this one comes close - and when  look into her eyes I know that she 'knows'. No words are necessary.

  1. this actually made me cry. I said goodbye to my cat 18 months ago and there isn't a day goes past when I don't miss her and think of her. Such beautiful green eyes that reach deep into your soul aren't they?

  5. Oh sniff, this made me all tearful. I adore our cats too, and have lost a few over the years. Before I was married they meant EVERYTHING to me, when the husband came along they meant EVERYTHING to us together. Having children has changed things a bit, but I have loved watching our children fall in love with our cats too.

    Gorgeous photo x
