Elenka has started an animal challenge. You can read her post here. If they could talk, they would tell us a lot of stories. If they could talk every day, they would tell us how much they love us, Elenka says.
My cat, the Dude does talk to me and to the birds. I caught this shot with him laying on his back very still for a few minutes, as if to say, Scratch Right Here. But of course if I try scratching his stomach he attacks me (just playing of course). So funny how he does this, most cats do. They entice you into thinking they want their stomachs scratched, but beware! Cats are so entertaining. They make me smile every day.
