I'll miss you forever

I've had a horrible couple of days.

Last friday we found my furry red companion, my sweetest pet, by the side of the road.
We went looking for her after two days of seeing nothing of her. I wasn't worried at all, with cats it's not unheard of that they travel a little and that they just pop up after a couple of days, maybe a week.
My boyfriend didn't feel comfortable with just waiting around so we called her name, walked around the neighborhood and didn't find her. It's absolutely horrible to think that just seconds before we found her lifeless body on the grass, I said to my boyfriend "well, at least she's not on the road, run over.".

Fuck. I can't believe she's gone.
I know a lot of people would probably laugh at us for being so fond of a pet but I see the cats and dogs that live with us as part of our family.
We might be a little bit missmatched but we love each other. So I dedicate my post to Poes, our dearly departed cat. We've only had her by our side for a year and a half.
She came to us as a skinny, small stray cat. She was really undernourished, I could feel her spine and ribs the first time she let me pet her. It took a little while before she completely trusted us but before we knew it, she was lying in the sun with us, sleeping, purring, so peaceful and content.

I'm so grateful that we took her in, if we didn't she would've probably died a lot sooner. She gave us six beautiful kittens, we kept three of them. So she still lives a little, through her babies. I'll never forget you, sweet, beautiful Poes. I'll always love you. Thank you for the wonderful times, even if it was cut short. Thank you for the fantastic little kitties you gave birth to, you were a wonderful parent. Thank you. These are the last pictures I took of her, last weeks tuesday. It breaks my heart.

Here's two pictures of her with her litter:

I just... can't believe she's gone.

Ah, there you are!

Sweet spring!
I've been taking LOADS of pictures lately, thanks to the wonderful weather.
Yesterday I actually rolled in the grass (it was a subtle, quiet way to change the angle to take a new pictureof my cat) and I loved the feeling of the warm grass against my skin.
My cat is always very happy when she sees me coming outside. She stays beside me the entire day, it's such a wonderful thing to have. A soft, furry red companion that loves you very much (but even more if you put your book down and scratch her back :-D).
It's hilarious and a little annoying sometimes, everytime I try to read a book when I'm outside she jumps on my book and starts rolling violently until I put the book away and give her some attention.

I used to be more of a dog person but I've grown to love cats just as much. The one male cat we have always drinks from the faucet, steals sponges and towels and he always wants to come to the bathroom with me. He's a weirdo but I love him to death. ANYHOO, pictures now!:

(the next one isn't actually one of my cats but he's more or less my oldest cat's boyfriend)
The next pictures are of my brother and his wife, they just got married two months or so ago!
I personally think they're a really beautiful couple. Now my cousin:

The upside of rain

Yes, weather stuff again but since I don't have a studio to take pictures in and the lighting in my house isn't all that dandy, I pretty much just have to wait until it gets dry outside. Not only dry but also a little sunlight would be nice. As in, direct sunlight. But there are rare occasions that it just rained outside and the lighting isn't all that bad. The next batch of pictures are taken on a moment like that, hope you like 'm :-).
