“There are two means of refuge from the misery of life – music and cats.”

16 Jan

That quote comes courtesy of Albert Schweitzer. Although torn between cats and dogs, I’ve always been more of a cat person. I love their independent nature. I love how many hours a day they can sleep. I love how they will find the best spot inside or out, warm and soft. I love their soothing purr. They make me happy. So I’m thrilled that my good friends, S and L, just received their furry little Burmese kitten this weekend! I got to have a snuggle with him on Sunday morning with breakfast. His name is Riga, named appropriately after the capital city of Latvia, a place that my friends fell in love with on a trip they made last year. Isn’t he adorable?
