Mindy magic

If you're not a cat person, then you are excused from reading this post (although on a side note, there must be something wrong with you)...I want to share a little Mindy-love.
The week before school started, the kids were gifted some big boxes, so they went to work making things from them.  Abigail decided to make a fort/home for Mindy.  I am fully convinced that this cat understands exactly what the kids say...no sooner had Abigail declared it ready than Mindy went in and did all of the things she was supposed to do.  She played with the feather dangling from the ceiling...
 ...she went to the window and looked out...
 ...and then she settled down inside it for a long nap.
 The kids were so delighted.  Have I mentioned how awesome this cat is?!
She does have an annoying habit or two...like insisting on getting drinks from any flower vase I have in the house.  But she's so cute about it that we can't stay annoyed for long!
When working on a project with wood glue and a chair, who needs clamps when you have a cat?!
Here she is getting her birthday treat.  Not tuna, or meat, or even a cat treat...no, her favorite treat in the world is homemade spaghetti sauce.  She closes her eyes and eats it in a happy coma-like state.  Crazy cat!
 We are thankful for our sweet cat!  She lives as though the whole world was put here just for her joy and delight and yet she is mild-mannered, patient, sweet, and very laidback.  She loves Nerf guns and she doesn't mind loud noise, children jumping over and around her, or visiting babies who are still learning to be gentle.  She loves to be in the middle of our family, always a part of the action.  The Lord gave our family a wonderful gift when He gave us our sweet Mindy!

Cats are definitely FULL of personality and it is wonderful when you get one that fits perfectly with your family.

I've got to say that is a cute story even though I am not a cat person (and therefore must have something wrong me me I guess, ahem!)

I loved this! I have seen some of her escapades but have missed the look on her face with the sauce-just beautiful! What is there NOT to love about cats?!

Loved your cat adventures--we had a cat for years and after he was gone--couldn't bear to replace him--maybe someday. FYI-he used to drink out of my coffee cups if I left them on the end table by the couch. Sharon
