I thought I’d do a little picture story of our outdoor/indoor girl.   Tork and her two siblings, shown in the flower pot below, were abandoned by their mother.  She was the survivor, even though she was the runt. My heart went out to her, and DH felt sorry for her too.  I started feeding her and even gave her some herbs, don’t remember which kind, to help her along and she did well.








Looking into the scullery, hoping she’ll be let in.



Life is rough.


Keeping warm.


Between DH’s feet. Notice she has wiggled her way indoors. 



Here she is drinking out of this chicken planter, that holds water. We always get a kick out of seeing her do this.





This photo below was taken tonight. She got up on my lap, kneaded for awhile, then climbed up on my chest and plopped herself down.  I asked DH to take this picture. So here she and I are in our ‘at home look’. Winking smile She kneads for quite awhile sometimes, and ends up slobbering as she does so. She is sitting in my lap here at the computer as I write, kneading away.


In awhile, she’ll go out into the ‘ca-trium’ where she sleeps at night.  It’s the screened room off the back of our cottage.

She is a sweetie pie, don’t we all think that about our fur babies?

That’s it for now.  Hope you all have a nice evening/morning and enjoy all your many blessings.

Ohh! How dear, FlowerLady! And those white-tipped front paws! How sweet she is! :) (

I assume she's not named after my favorite Monkee, though?) :)

Yes, she is so precious. They can do the greatest things to make us smile and your cat is so pretty. I like the cat pile in the pottery. I really liked your story through pictures.

I enjoyed all the pictures of Tork, but my favorite is the one with her sleeping on your chest.

I enjoy all of ours....but at a distance; none are indoor cats. Our one indoor cat met with a terrible end. I still enjoy one of her babies that looks like her the most,

I loved the one of her on the mermaid's lap in the middle of the fountain. Also the one of her peering through the Four O'Clocks! She looks very sweet!

Aaawww I love the photo's and the story.

It reminds me of the story of my kitty Panini, she was so tiny and frail I thought that she was going to die, But she made it and is healthy and well, she is now two years old. Tork and her siblings are cuties.

What a sweet ending.

Tork is so sweet and lovable looking. I am a cat person (we have 2) and enjoyed seeing all the different photos of her in and around your home. They each definitely have their own personality, and I know my home would not be the same without at least one lovable cat around to scoop up and hug. Hugs to Tork!

Has to be one of my favorite posts you have written. Great pics, I love cats ! She is precious !!!

Fantastic photos.
I have a few favorites including the cats in the pot and the fountain one. The cat looking towards the scullery is also a beautiful shot. As a veiwer I can feel the love for this animal with all the photos. Companions and friends albeit furry.

I Love Tork and his story of how he came to you and got to stay at his forever home. Really, very precious pictures that you captured of him. It is funny how he drinks out of that chicken planter. I have a couple favorites - the one of him climbing up on your leg and the one of him looking out at the butterfly.

Tork is a doll. She is very lucky to have found you.

Your pictures really capture her loveable personality.

Tork is adorable! Love her coloring with the four white paws and the pretty blaze. She looks so content with you and it's apparent she loves her home.

You have captures wonderful pictures of her!!! When she's looking in the window, you can see her ears cocked as if to say "quit taking my picture and let me in". Looking at a cat so relaxed in sleep is about the same as watching a sleeping baby. She will bring you lots of joy

What a lovely kitty! She looks wonderful in your garden. It is great that you gave her such a happy home.
