Portrait of a Heart of Gold by TeaPhotography Portrait of a Heart of Gold by TeaPhotography
Dedicated to some very lovely friends :iconsaretta1: and :iconaussie-blonde: and :iconjulianasgrandma:
for their respective BIRTHDAYS, [Aug. 16th, 18th, and 19th] !!!
:party: :party: :party:

Each of these ladies are truly wonderful, both in their kind support, as well as their fantastic works they share on dA! :clap:

I also happen to know that each one likes animals, and especially cats, and that to me, these ladies each have a HEART OF GOLD. :nod:

:heart: :iconwalkingcatplz: :heart:

Those who have known me a long time on dA, know, that Jikan- photographed here- is "The Cat Who Started it All"... meaning he was my very first cat ever, which we took in as a stray over 5 years ago by now...

... as a result, he is the reason why we have all the other cats that we do, AND the reason I became inspired to begin volunteer work with foster groups, shelters, and humane societies! :heart:

Jikan is my own HEART OF GOLD, and I love him so dearly!
:iconyellowheartplz:

Here is a small feature of each of the BIRTHDAY GIRL'S works!

Sara


Linley


Allie


Dear Birthday Girls,
You are each amazing people,
and I thank you for everything...
I wish you the best now, and in the coming year! :rose:
Your Friend, Tea

Heart of Gold
~Neil Young
I want to live,
I want to give
I've been a miner
for a heart of gold.
It's these expressions
I never give
That keep me searching
for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old.
Keeps me searching
for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old.
.....

Though I adore Neil Young, I admit that I love Johnny Cash's version! :heart:

[ :note: NOTE: Thank you, in advance, for any :+fav:'s I may receive for this image. :thanks: :aww: :rose: I am honoured and grateful that anyone would think well enough to :+fav: it. :nod: So thank you from the bottom of my heart :heart: . I understand if you don't have time to comment, but thank you for any kind comments, too. :aww:
It's important to know this NOW, as I may NOT be able to do individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
And, if you just came to view, I appreciate that, too.

ahA! Yes, he does rock... we actually say this all the time,
and very pretty... of all of our very different and unique cats, which we do think are pretty, he STILL gets the most attention for his "looks"...

Of course, this means, he knows of his awesomeness... :faint:
;)

Thanks Richard! :heart:

Exactly, although when we moved to a new place...
it seems by then one of our other male cats, Herbie, who was "all grown up" by then, had tried to challenge that "king of the roost" position, that Jikan had previously enjoyed for so long...

Thankfully things have settled down by now, and Herbie "let" Jikan retain his kingliness. :lol:
