Obligatory kitty picture

This is Alec.

Also known as “Baby Cat.” Baby Cat is no baby—he’s a whopping 16 years old this year. You’d never know it, though, because he is as sprightly as a kitten sometimes.

There is something just so beautiful about a cat in the window. Why is that? Are we touched by the poignancy of watching an indoor cat look at the outdoors that he cannot reach? Or do cats and windows simply express the essence of “home” and make us feel cozy?

  1. I tend towards the latter explanation — cats = home to me. (Actually, cats and dogs = home to me; I’m very ecumenical that way.) Love the picture!!

  2. P.S. Thanks for the welcome to our newest family member! She’s settling in beautifully 🙂

  3. I don’t know what it is but a cat seems so in place in the window, it just screams coziness to me 🙂 Alec is a handsome kitty by the way!
