I'm taking part in Mary of The Little Red House blog's "Mosaic Monday." Please check Mary's blog today for links to other blogs participating in this event. Thank you, Mary, for hosting this event and also teaching us how to make beautiful mosaics! I used the Google Picasa program to make my mosaic, using my photo files stored on Picasa. I like the program very much! I paid a nominal fee for extra storage, as I exceeded it's free usage, but I'm happy with the program's ease of storage, editing, and ability to mail whole albums to family and friends.
My mosaic today is of my adopted cat "Bo." He is eleven years old and I've had him for five years, after adopting him from one of my daughter's friends who had developed an allergy issue. He's one of the sweetest and most lovable cats that I've ever had the pleasure of welcoming into my life. His breed is a RagaMuffin, which are classically large and heavy cats.
Their personality is described as such:
"RagaMuffins are known for their stunning appearance and tender disposition. They are often likened to the soft loyalty of lapdogs. These cats appear to crave human attention and are often found in laps when their owners are otherwise distracted with television or books."
That description fits Bo to a tee, as I can not sit in a chair without him jumping up to sit on my lap and purr. His next favorite position is to lay on his back next to me to have his tummy rubbed, and his third favorite position is curled up sleeping, which he does for quite a bit of the day because of his senior age.
One of his unusual features is that he has one blue eye and one green eye, which you can see in some of the photos. His fur has to be brushed every day, and he does shed quite a bit, but those are minor chores in return for all the love he gives us.
If you are looking for a mild mannered and loving cat to be your friend, a RagaMuffin is an excellent choice!
"I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul."
