Library Thing Tuesday (82) + Picture of Emmy

Today Wendi is talking about the World Cat feature. And as per usual, I just checked it out today for the first time. I looked for my edition of George Orwell's 1984 but didn't find it.

But I do have another kind of world cat for you today too - a Lamu cat I snapped a picture of in a alley way of this Kenyan beach town. They are said to be the closest breed to those cats you see depicted in Egyptian hieroglyphics.

Aristocratic, no?

And because I don't want you to feel cheated out of Emmy, here she is cuddled up in our blanket. It's getting MUCH colder here...

the lamu cat is cute but looked rather grumpy. And Emmy, as usual, is adorable!

Awww, that is such a great pic of Emmy all snuggled in. It's getting really cold here now. Buddy crawls under the covers at night and lays close to the heating pad even though he's so furry.

Gotta love Emily! The Lamu cat looks a bit too skinny to me. Or maybe my own cat is a bit on the plump side, lol.
