The sweetness of Sophie!


My name is Sophie...actually it is Sophia Belle.  But Mommy only calls me that when I'm a bad, hardly ever!
 Today's post is ALL about me!  I am so excited to tell everyone all about my life as a Painter Pack member!

I was born on April 30th of 2010.  Mommy knows this because she got me from a friend of hers...I was on my way to the pound and Mommy couldn't stand I became hers!
 I came to live with Mommy and the Pack at a very difficult time in their lives.  We were in a furry bad living situation. Almost dangerous.  So maybe that is why I am such a skittish kitty.
 When I was 6 months old, Mommy left this horrible situation...I was supposed to be taken care of for a few days during the move, but some evil person threw me outside where I had to fend for myself.
 Mommy didn't know this...she thought I was safe.  When she found me, I was scared and dirty, having lived under the house for over a week.  I know this is a normal life for a lot of kitties...and I am so sad for them. 
 At the time, I had a brother named Riley Kat...He was a few months older and Mommy had come to love him and tried to take him with us.  But the evil person hid him and we could never find him.  Mommy drove by that house for weeks, trying to find him.  But never did.  We found out that Riley Kat passed away this past spring...He suffered a horrible life...all because of that evil person.  But, he knew love...even if it was for a short time.  Mommy and I still miss him.
 But more about me!

I am part Norwegian Forrest Cat!  This means I am a big girl!  I weigh 12 pounds!  But I am all love!  I am very shy....
 I have a fear of men, which is a result of my being mistreated by the evil person...but I do love my hooman brother...but I like him best when he sits down...cause he is sooooo tall!

I get along good wif the and the Siberian are close pals.  

I also like to help Mommy when she is working!   

I am just a lump of fur and loving!  I think I would prefer to be an only child...but, that's not going to happen.  I have a kitty sister and three doggie sisters.  
 I love them all, but I like it when it is quiet...just me and Mommy.  She knows just how to rub all the right places!  I always sleep on her bed...or on her. I hardly ever leave the bedroom.

So this is me!  I love my family and my family loves me!  I am glad that Mommy and hooman brother never left me behind and fought to keep me safe.  

I am not much for playing and the normal cat antics...I prefer to just be a quiet kitty...I like looking out my window and laying on my window shelf that Mommy put up for me.  

Please take a moment and love on your kitties and doggies!  Remember that they are a gift to be cherished!  Cause that is what I am!  Purrrrsssss!!!!

The Heart

 Another year passes...we never forget your birthday.  It's a day that was important for so many years.  Yesterday, November 1, 2015 our boy Jack would have been 15.  To me, that is not old at all.  If cancer had not entered his body, he would have been a robust senior!

But, it did.  And we lost you much too soon...June of 2014.

We try not to be sad when we think of you...instead, we laugh at things you did or might have done now if you were still with us.  Like barking at the UPS person!  No one got past your ears, even in your last days.  Jack, you are still missed and still very much loved.  I hope our words reach you in Heaven...I hope you are there with Koova and Doodle, and even Riley Cat, having a blast.  Let them know that they are not forgotten either.

When you love someone with your whole heart, that never changes.  The ache lessens...the sadness dims...but the love never leaves.  That is why we love with the most powerful and life-sustaining part of our bodies.  The Heart.

Forever in our hearts...
 Jackson "Samari" Jack Painter
     Loved forever by his Pack
