Ode to My Companions

A short video of my kittens playing

By Karishma Hyder

How the hind legs remind of rabbits hopping
While the front paws can turn to claws
The mischief in their minds
Can be read
By the posing whiskers
Plastered to the fur; or
Protruding front
The pointed listening devices
Give away all
The fear of the unknown; or
The love of the known
They sit still
Like a statue
But the tips of the tails
Can’t be kept still

My Kittens - Mango, Cleopatra and Aristotle

The one in the middle is Cleopatra...This shot is one of my favourite and rare shots of my kittens with their mom "Lade"

Mango looks like she got the orange colour on her body by rubbing herself on the varnish of the chair while the bottom part white from the tiled floor :P

      It was a wonderful treat to have received such wonderful comments on one of my favourite hubs. Epigramman, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your benevolent nature and kindness and my kitties sends their love and paw shakes to yours.

      FloraBreenRobinson, I am glad you found this and left this heart warming comment.

      tammyswallow, thanks for stopping by. My darlings are little bags of energy. Right now Aristo has a little fever and on medication so he's not as jumpy as before.

      Thank you all .. it really cheered me up :)

      They are so precious! They look like little Bengal tigers. You can tell they are hand raised and spoiled. Love it!!
