Daisy Dukes

Daisy Dukes
is a beautiful, polydactyl calico with lovely green eyes. This is a very unusual picture. Daisy loves to sleep on the very softest things she can find and this fleece blanket is just perfect for her. What is unusual is that the new kitten Anakin is also sleeping there. The other cats have taken to Anakin pretty well, but Daisy has been avoiding him. She isn't mean to him or anything; she has just been staying away from him, though she does hiss at him occasionally. So now the question is, has Daisy finally accepted Anakin or was the fleece just too irresistible, despite his being there? I guess it is possible that Daisy was there first and Anakin joined her after she went to sleep. Notice how she has snuggled her face right into the fleece.  This is a typical sleeping position for her.  Daisy has lots of fun when she isn't napping. She really enjoys paper bags. Once in a great while, her Mom lets her go out in the back yard, under careful observation. There is a comforter with a daisy pattern on it that is her favorite place to nap. I call it a quilt in the limerick to make the line scan.

                                                 Daisy chooses the softest place
                                                 To take her nap and rest her face.
                                                       The quilt with daisies
                                                       Brings on the lazies.
                                                 That has become her favorite place.

Anakin looks like she's reaching out to lightly touch Daisy's ear... just to tease her and see if she'll wake up. ... just like I do to my husband when he's snoring too much. : )

Very sweet limerick, Karen Jo.

A really soft blankie can go a long way to making kitties 'like' one another ;) Just as long as Anakin does not jump on Daisy,heehee

Cute, a bit like me and Sohpie. Thank you for your kind words after Rosy died. I never got to go visiting. It was pretty hard on my mom bean. But she's all happy now.
