Happy Friday! I want to tell you about a project I’m starting on Instagram, one that I’ll be sharing on this blog.
The purpose of this blog—and a lot of what I’m all about—is to celebrate living life with cats, to write about the beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, love-filled life I have as I follow cats.
As a way of documenting what life with cats is like, I’m posting a picture each day of one or more of my cats on Instagram, with a little bit of the story behind each picture.
Living with cats is not all sun puddles and purrs. You know that if you have ever lived with a cat. When we take care of a living being, there are hard times, there is sadness, and there is pure grief.
But living with cats gives me joy. What love I would be missing if I didn’t have cats around me.
In adopting cats, I am giving them a home and, as much as I possibly can, a peaceful and safe environment. I can only hope that I give as much to my cats as they give to me.
I hope my documentation will help others—even those who never really think about cats—see the beauty and awesomeness of cats.
If you’d like to follow along on Instagram, I’m at tinabarbour9.
The picture of Natasha in this post is the first one I posted for the project. She is staring at the birds on one of the bird feeders on a cold, gray November day. Cat TV at its best.
