Rock-a-Bye Balance by TeaPhotography Rock-a-Bye Balance by TeaPhotography
This is dedicated to a very good and thoughtful friend: :iconarte-de-junqueiro:

If you know Mel, you know his kindness and thoughtfulness! :aww:

Additionally, you will know the tagline in his comments:
Balance is Important- Love is Essential!!

which I have always loved and plays a big part for the reason for this title... :aww:

Mel has been especially supportive of me and my work, since I've met him on dA!
He's even supported The Shelter Project in every way that one can. :rose:

Photographed here are two of my cats Tsuki [all white]
and Philippe [all black], [both rescues, from two different facilities...]

They are often cuddled together in the same place, in some "Balanced" fashion- in this case they are exactly symmetrical. They seem so different and yet they are balanced together, especially when you consider their completely opposite colours which when together, remind me of the YIN YANG symbol:
:pointr: [link] and [link]

Though I have many photos of them laying together, either awake or asleep, here is a previous one which I did upload to dA:

To see them like this, and asleep, gives me such a sense of peace and balance,
and a wish for the world that even when we are different, we could get along together in mostly what makes us the same- therefore coming very close to BALANCE! :heart:

Some of Mel's great work:

I'm reminded of this childhood song:

Rock-a-Bye Baby

Rock-a-bye baby, in the tree top
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall
And down will come baby, cradle and all

Though a cat would likely land on their feet, luckily!!

:music: Lyrics HERE: [link]

And you just HAVE to see this VIDEO on YouTube of this CAT!!! :omg: :faint: :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.
