This is dedicated to my dearest friend Jocelyne
for... just because...
If I counted all the reasons, we'd be here forever!!
But she is just fabulous, and I count myself blessed that I have known her so long, and that she is a wonderful friend to me, and to many. Her heart is big and beautiful.
This is Piccolo, [Piccolo Pita], our most recent addition to our family... call us crazy if you must, but anymore it doesn't matter
... all of our pets are spayed, neutered, given their shots, managed well in a variety of ways, such as medical files that we keep on each one, not to mention spoiled as they deserve to be!
We adopted Piccolo, about a month ago from our own humane society here, which I volunteer with as their photographer.
A man brought her in, saying she'd been hanging out under his carport for nearly three months and he was simply "tired of her there"... she had been given no name, and she was extremely skinny with a very scarred up NOSE!
However, she was also love and attention starved, and extremely tame, with no ill-mannered quirks.
At first, it was popularly wondered if she was a kitten, but soon realized that instead she was a full-grown cat, but at only 4 pounds!!
She is young, though, perhaps about a year only, and she does love to play... a lot!
She is my little silver shadow, too.
She is a silver tabby, very light grey in colour with distinct WHITE target marks on her sides, and white stripes on her tail.
She has the hugest tawny brown eyes, that I've ever seen on a cat! In fact, I've not often seen a cat with brown eyes.
I thought Piccolo would be the perfect name, because of her tiny size like the Piccolo instrument, her silver colouring, and because of the Piccolo sounding trills that she makes!
We have been treating her for a severe allergy, on her neck, but it is finally getting better, the scab has worn off and the hair is growing back.
She's obviously had a rough start in life, but she's not let it break her spirit, which is 100x larger than she is!
She is "larger than life" and tons of fun, and Daisy our big dog is completely enamoured by her, and everyone else only took a couple days to adjust, as she is quite courageous, not shy, very social, and so definitely all in all, doing amazingly well!
WE JUST ADORE OUR PICCOLO!
