hypnotic kitten eyes

by

Kittens grow up remarkably quickly, so it’s a treat to be able to meet and photograph them when they’re still babies. I recently enjoyed a play date with little Miss Mia, who was only about 10 weeks old at the time.

After some tentative sniffing, followed by nose boops, we had established that we were friends, and we proceeded to sit down on the floor and play. As you would expect, Mia had a ton of kitten energy, that amusing flexibility that only kittens seem to possess, and a crazy-loud purr.

 

 

And she has eyes that would melt any heart and hypnotize anyone into the unshakeable belief that yellow-eyed, gray-nosed kittens are the most beautiful creatures ever …

 

Hi, there! I’m Jennifer, and I help too-busy-to-read bookworms and those who want to *be* readers maximize life’s simple joys — like reading a good book — by helping them create quiet spaces (mentally and physically) inspired by the habits of cats, who are masters at finding joy in life’s small details.

“The only important thing in a book is the meaning it has for you.”

W. Somerset Maugham

“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”

Cicero

“There are perhaps no days of our childhood we lived so fully as those we spent with a favorite book.”

Marcel Proust

“Standing there, staring at the long shelves crammed with books, I felt myself relax and was suddenly at peace.”

Helene Hanff

“What a happy woman I am, living in a garden, with books … birds, and flowers, and plenty of leisure to enjoy them!”

Elizabeth von Arnim

“A book is a dream that you hold in your hand.”

Neil Gaiman

“The art of reading is … an intimate ritual, that a book is a mirror that offers us only what we already carry inside us; when we read, we do it with all our heart and mind.”

Carlos Ruiz Zafón

“When I … looked round at the familiar bookshelves, and could hear no sounds but sounds of peace, and knew that here I might read or dream or idle exactly as I chose with never a creature to disturb me, how grateful I felt to the kindly Fate that has brought me here and given me a heart to understand my own blessedness.”
